• Biden My Time as Bernie Burns Out

    How did the Democrats end up with Joe Biden their presumptive nominee?

    After three years of preparatory media artillery fire about diversity and change, those stupid pink hats, and chumming the electorate with promises of free college alongside all the healthcare-they-care-to-eat, Democrats started with six women, a couple of black people, the gay one, a huge mix of experience and background, and progressive ideas ranging from the necessary to the kooky.

    Here’s the full list of players — Biden, Gabbard, Sanders, Warren, Bloomberg, Klobuchar, Buttigieg, Steyer, Patrick, Yang, Bennet, Delaney, Booker, Williamson, Castro, Harris, Bullock, Sestak, Messam, O’Rourke!, Ryan, de Blasio, Gillibrand, Moulton, Inslee, Hickenlooper, Swalwell, Walsh, Sanford, and some guy from West Virginia named Richard Ojeda.

    How many of their faces can you picture?

    The Democrat party ended up choosing the only candidate from 1958, 77-year-old Joe Biden. He’s old, he’s tired, he lost the race for president twice already (once for plagiarism and lying about his education), and he appears to be in some state of cognitive decline. Between the hair plugs and too-much botox he looks waxy, like grandpa putting himself out there for one last fling after grandma Obama passed away God rest her soul. That Biden is required to chose a woman as his VP as a sop to the last three years only serves to emphasize the tokenism of the moment — ironically it is the Democratic party which has demonstrated a woman, gay person, or POC can’t be elected president but here, see, we’ll put your photo on the refrigerator so everyone can see how hard you tried.

    The entire premise of the Democratic primary was false. It misunderstood Trump’s election as a fluke if not an outright scam, and that The People wanted a revolution. This was sustained by a relatively small group of disconnected people who through cancelation culture, peer pressure, and the need to fill a 24/7 media vacuum convinced each other they were right. So when a mediagenic Hispanic woman won a nothing race by a few votes against a sleepy incumbent in the Bronx, they told each other they were right and AOC is the proof. The echo chamber made it seem they were always right as they serially proclaimed new saviors, off-stage The Squad, on stage Beto! and Pete predominantly, though Booker, Harris, Klobuchar and others were granted mini-moments after a decent debate performance or some minor event. Some call it the “pundit fallacy,” a belief driven inside the echo chamber that Americans are at heart progressive people who haven’t yet been educated to vote the way they really should.

    The problem was as soon as the actual people were allowed a word it all fell apart. The primary narrowed very quickly. White voters didn’t like the black candidates. Novelty candidates like Yang and Steyer sucked up bandwidth and confused the electorate. Midwesterners were terrified of initiatives aimed at transgender, reparation, and illegal immigrant support blocks that existed only in the minds of candidates who read too much in the Atlantic and The Nation. Everyone wanted better healthcare but very few agreed a massive upheaval of our capitalist economic system was the way forward on that. The candidates went out of their way to ignore public opinion on these issues and alienate voters, especially purple voters. Maybe next time the party can find a progressive thinker who also likes to hunt deer.

    Now quick, name one of Biden’s signature policy initiatives.

    The second-to-last man standing, Bernie, was artificial. Unlike everyone else in the field, he started with a pre-built organization, fully-formed policies, and a cash load from 2016. He had a certain glow to him, having been treated so unfairly in 2016 but that did not help much when there was no anti-Hillary vote to glom. But while initial powerups allowed Bernie to survive, he never grew. The new voters he counted on never appeared, at least not for him. Voter turnout did increase on Super Tuesday compared with 2016 but most of those new voters went for Biden. Bernie was the rock band still touring behind its one smash hit; the audiences are the same people who loved them in the 70s, just older now, even as the size of the venues shrunk.

    The process of elimination reality drove forward was nudged by old-fashioned party power plays. Black voters were massed by local pols in South Carolina to come out for Biden. Someone behind the curtain (almost certainly Obama) made the calls to Buttigieg and Klobuchar and told them, as he likely did in 2016 with Biden to clear the way for Hillary, “kid, this ain’t your night.”

    You end up with Joe Biden.

    One writer called Biden’s success the product of the “politics of exhaustion,” seeing a Democratic electorate not anxious for change, but one that’s just tired, and tired of being tired. The unrelenting apocalyptic news cycles of the past few years depressed them and finally burned them out, and all they want is to tune out and put someone acceptable enough in charge. When Nancy Pelosi declared the morning of Super Tuesday “Civilization as we know it is at stake in the 2020 election” they had had it.

    Exhausted, you end up with Joe Biden, running on three things: 1) he’s not Trump; 2) maybe he’ll die in office and his VP will take over early in his term and 3) Joe’s cognitive decline appears slightly less than Trump’s in the race for Mr. Alzheimer 2020 but we’re not sure. Not exactly “Hope and Change.”

    Biden candidacy also means sweeping three years of Democratic messaging under the bed. The list of subjects Joe won’t be able to talk about is a long one. Russiagate imploded on its own. Impeachment centered Hunter Biden and ain’t nobody on the Democratic side gonna bring that up.

    President Bone Spurs? Biden received five student draft deferments during the Vietnam War, same as Trump. In 1968 when his student status was wrapping up, Biden was medically reclassified as “not available” due to asthma. Yet in his autobiography he described an active youth as a lifeguard and high school football player. He also lied about being on the University of Delaware football team.

    Trump’s naughty finances? After leaving the Obama White House Joe and his wife made more than $15 million, mostly via a sweetheart book deal. Biden and his wife made nearly twice as much in 2017 as they did in the previous 19 years combined. The University of Pennsylvania gave Joe $775,000 to teach, and then was nice enough to grant him indefinite leave of absence from actually teaching. Biden charged the Secret Service $2,200 a month rent for a cottage on his property so they could protect him. Since leaving office Biden made $2.4 million on speaking engagements, including $10,000 for travel expenses to the University of Buffalo. A speech at Southwestern Michigan in October 2018 included $50,000 in travel expenses (for the rubes out there, travel expenses are not taxable income.)

    Taxes? After failing to close the loophole with Obama, Joe left office to create his own S Corporation, so he receives money for things like book advances and speaking fees not directly, which would cause him to pay Social Security and Medicare taxes as with salaries, but laundered as divestitures from a corporation he owns. As corporate money, nasty personal taxes are fully avoided, and the corporation can claim nearly unlimited “business expenses” to be deducted against those profits. Joe’s S Corp also donated his own money back to his PAC. Legal laundering.

    Trump’s sexism and racism? Young people, Google “Anita Hill” now. You’ll be hearing a lot about her come the fall.

    Biden represents to many Democrat voters semi-living proof they will never see healthcare reform in their lifetime (Biden’s comeback drove a $48 billion gain for health insurance stock; they know.) Absent a timely cardiac event, they will not see a woman president for who knows how many years. Income inequality will remain the salient descriptor of our society. To win, Biden will have to break the record for oldest man to be sworn in as president (Trump holds the title now.)

    Biden’s worst enemy heading into November will be low voter turnout. His opponent for Democratic votes will be Mr. Just Stay Home. That’s why those polls which show broad dissatisfaction with Trump are useless. The Trade Joe Moms of Northern Virginia are never going to vote for Donald Trump. But they just might vote for no one. There are ominous signs; polls for several states Biden won on Super Tuesday, including Massachusetts, Texas and several southern states that helped catapult the former vice president into front-runner status found young voters did not show up at the rate they did in 2016. Same problem for disrespected Bernie supporters who just might sit November out.

    The black voters who saved Biden in South Carolina are notoriously fickle when it comes to turn out. Older Americans, who favor Trump, historically turn out at 30 to 40 percent higher rates than the youngest voters. The exaggeration of white privilege that became a cornerstone of the Democratic party — whites are racist, illiterate opioid-soaked gun nuts — is also one of the ways Democrats risk losing the 2020 presidential race, as it leads inexorably to the devaluation of voters needed to clinch the Electoral College.

    Biden’s presumptive status as nominee triggered the MSM hive mind to drop any talk of the issues which have dominated their agenda for three years in favor of droning about electability. It makes little sense. Why else vote for someone if not for what he represents and will do? You want electability, run a puppy. Biden represents the end state of a political thinking that literally anyone must be better than Trump. The backup plan seems to be rooting for the coronavirus to  trigger a massive recession.

    That’s betting the whole house on one thin straw. It’s what happens when you settle for Joe Biden.

      Trump: he’s the presidunce you morons deserve

      You can fool the morons in this country but not the rest of the world:

      Norway’sUniversity of Science and Technology has issued an alert urging students studying abroad to return home as a response to the coronavirus pandemic — specifically singling out the U.S.

      The warning from the nation’s largest university, with some 40,000 students, applies “especially” to students staying in nations with “poorly developed health services,” as well as countries, “for example the USA,” with a “poorly developed collective infrastructure.”

      In a stinging rebuke of Presidunce Trump everything is fine , First Lady Melania Trump’s office announced on Monday that it has cancelled the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

      In a statement, the First Lady’s office said that the move had been made “out of an abundance of caution” during the novel coronavirus pandemic.

      “The health and safety of all Americans must be the first priority,” the first lady said in the statement. “I deeply regret this cancellation, but we need to make difficult decisions in the short-term to ensure a healthy country for the long-term.”

      Damn, this shit is gettin real. Thank god, someone in the White House is showing some real leadership.

      Say what?

      Last night Joe Biden said he plans to pick a woman as his running mate if he secures the Democratic nomination to challenge President Donald Trump.

      “I would pick a woman to be my vice president,” Biden said during Sunday night’s debate against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). “There are a number of women who are qualified to be president tomorrow.”

      When a female reporter said Hillary Clinton was objectively the most qualified woman and would he pick her, Biden replied:. You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier.

      This is Joe’s standard reply when his dementia kicks in.

      Maybe the DNC won’t be able to wrangle another doomed Geraldine Ferraro type. She and her husband John Zaccaro-a shady real estate guy in the mold of Trump and Kushner- did have daughters so maybe they are being considered. It might come down to Biden picking a female who uses the most fragranced shampoo.

      If the Orange Clown infected Pence and they both cant serve, there is a bigger idiot to replace them: Florida’s governor.

      Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) confirmed Friday that Florida would vote as scheduled in Tuesday’s presidential primaries amid continued concern over the coronavirus outbreak.

      “We’re definitely voting. They voted during the Civil War. We’re going to vote,” DeSantis said at a press conference in Tallahassee, Fla., the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported.

      Really? How did that end? Trump just advised no more than 10 people at a gathering. But the gov knows best. Would feel terrible if this jerk gets sick.

      How do you fight World War CV when you are surrounded by idiots?

      Polls by NPR, PBS NewsHour and Marist shows that the number of Republicans who believe the virus is a real threat has actually fallen over the past month, from 72 percent in February to just 40 percent now. A majority of Republicans now say the threat has been blown out of proportion — more than double the 23 percent who said so last month.

      Here we go again: Having Mr Sharpie as our presidunce is worse than Homer Simpson at the controls of a nuke reactor.

      Trump’s notes from Thursday’s coronavirus briefing show a black sharpie of “someone” – guess who- crossed out the word “Corona” in coronavirus and replaced it with the word “Chinese.”

      This picture captured by Washington Post Photographer Jabin Botsford, comes as Trump has stepped up his efforts to scapegoat China for the spread of the coronavirus.

      The change in tone from the White House comes as the number of cases in the US rises on a daily basis, and despite Trump initially praising China’s President Xi Jinping for his handling of the crisis.

      “I am not responsible.”. He’s got that right. The idiots who voted for the Orange Clown are.

      The Rich will take care of themselves:

      On Fox News Thursday, right-wing commentator Tucker Carlson laid into Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) following reports that he offloaded $1.6 dollars in stock after private briefings on coronavirus, even as he publicly downplayed its threat to the economy.

      “You may have seen the news reports this afternoon that the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee sold more than a million dollars in stock in February, after learning how devastating the Chinese coronavirus could be,” said Carlson. “He had inside information about what could happen to our country, which is now happening. But he didn’t warn the public. He didn’t give a primetime address. Didn’t go on television to sound the alarm. He didn’t even disavow an op-ed he had written just ten days before claiming that America was, quote, ‘better prepared than ever for coronavirus.’”

      Cant wait for the Stock sale reports of other Repugnican insiders.

      According to ProPublica, Roll Call estimated Burr’s net wealth at $1.7 million in 2018, meaning that the stock movements likely comprised a major chunk and perhaps the vast majority of his financial holdings. Curiously, Barr was one of the three senators who voted against a since-passed bill, the STOCK Act, which prohibits members of Congress from using their positions to profit from nonpublic information.

      Burr’s office says all of this is just a happy little coincidence and not, speaking hypothetically, an egregious abuse of power designed to shield the senator from financial consequences when potentially millions of Americans would fall ill and the economy would hit a recession or worse.

      History of life: Rich always take care of themselves

      As news emerges every day of asymptomatic professional athletes and celebrities testing positive for the coronavirus, ordinary Americans are struggling to access tests. At a White House press conference Wednesday, NBC’s Peter Alexander asked President Trump the question that’s been on everyone’s mind: “Do the well-connected go to the front of the line?”

      “Well, you have to ask them that question,” Trump said. “I mean, I’ve read—.”

      “Should that happen?” Alexander asked.

      “No, I wouldn’t say so,” Trump replied. But, as usual, the rich have easy access to services working class people struggle to find. “But perhaps that’s been the story of real life.”

      Real life…like riots and revolution too.

      “Should that happen?” Alexander asked.

      While Dominos stock is reaching new highs during the shutdown, pretty soon in NYC pizza home delivery may be tougher.

      As many as 40 percent of all New Yorkers won’t be able to afford their rent after having been laid off due to the coronavirus, according to a new study.

      The report, by real estate website PropertyNest, found that 38.9 percent of all New Yorkers do not have enough saved to pay a single month’s rent if they lose their jobs or their paychecks are put on hold.

      Only a quarter of all New Yorkers have six months’ rent squirreled away, while just 14 percent have one month’s rent saved. The hardest hit will be women and younger adults, aged 18 to 24, the study found.

      “The data shows a clear gap between the haves and have nots,” said Ruth Shin, founder of PropertyNest, which commissioned the survey of 2,048 people. “More than one-third of all New York City residents won’t be able to pay rent, and this will rise to more than half of all residents.

At age 20, he moved to Los Angeles, California to further his career; launching multiple product businesses, a digital media company, and a real estate development firm. Michael Coudrey has made significant contributions to the digital media efforts in United States politics, offering social media and “digital information warfare” services to political candidates across the country. He is a philanthropist, having donated to political and educational causes, stating “we have a moral obligation to guide those who are willing to learn”.

      A massive recession? What an optimist. You should hear what
      Bill de Blasio said.

      Big Apple hospitals are just 10 days away from running out of essential equipment to save lives from the novel coronavirus.

      “If we don’t get more ventilators in the next 10 days, people will die who don’t have to die. It’s as simple as that,” de Blasio told Wolf Blitzer on CNN’s “The Situation Room.”

      “Bluntly, Wolf, I think we’re about 10 days away now from seeing widespread shortages of really fundamental supplies — ventilators, surgical masks — the things that absolutely are necessary to keep a hospital running,” he said. “They will not be able to function if they don’t get an infusion of money right away,”

      Dont think Biden is the end state, mate. Check.

      Donnie Trump: Menace to Society

      Trumpie: “No one could have imagined it. We’ve never seen anything like it. I felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic.”

      But when Trumpie was asked on Jan. 22: “Are you worried about a pandemic at this point?,” the man who knew it was a pandemic before everyone else replied, “No, not at all. And we have it totally under control.”

      Asked on Jan. 31 whether he was at all concerned about the coronavirus, Trump said, “Well, we’ve pretty much shut it down.”

      On Feb. 10 he denied that there was anything to worry about. “A lot of people think it goes away in April,” he said.

      On Feb. 26 the president told us that the virus was about to disappear. “Within a couple of days it’s going to be down to close to zero,” he said.

      On Feb. 28 he offered this inanity: “Almost everybody that we see is getting better, and it could be everybody.”

      The next day, the president tried to sell America the epidemiological Brooklyn Bridge, stating that a coronavirus vaccine would be available “very quickly” and “very rapidly.”

      On March 2 he doubled down with this lie: “They’re going to have a vaccine relatively soon.”

      So why would we settle for Biden when Trumpie has got this virus cold?

      Trumpie, that poor syphilitic looney, cant wait to get us all back to work. He has an excuse. But for rational, educated people on reputable places like Facebook to agree the CURE is worse than the problem, we are really in end times. The problem Trumpie sees are the doctors, you know the guys who are trying to save you morons.

      The warning from Tom Inglesby, the director of the Center for Health Security at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, came as Trump said during a press conference that he was considering easing social distancing guidelines after March 30. But Inglesby, in a series of tweets, laid out just how bad the problem could get.

      “Anyone advising the end of social distancing now, needs to fully understand what the country will look like if we do that,” Inglesby wrote. “COVID would spread widely, rapidly, terribly, could kill potentially millions in the yr ahead with huge social and economic impact across the country.

      Trumpie wants Easter to be the day American goes back to work. Calling Trumpie batshit crazy is appropro as batshit in China started this pandemic.

      Leading theory is the virus evolved to its current pathogenic state through natural selection in a non-human host and then jumped to humans. This is how previous coronavirus outbreaks have emerged, with humans contracting the virus after direct exposure to civets (SARS) and camels (MERS). The researchers proposed bats as the most likely reservoir for SARS-CoV-2 as it is very similar to a bat coronavirus. There are no documented cases of direct bat-human transmission, however, suggesting that an intermediate host was likely involved between bats and humans.

      In this scenario, both of the distinctive features of SARS-CoV-2’s spike protein — the RBD portion that binds to cells and the cleavage site that opens the virus up — would have evolved to their current state prior to entering humans. In this case, the current epidemic would probably have emerged rapidly as soon as humans were infected, as the virus would have already evolved the features that make it pathogenic and able to spread between people.

      Trumpie better change his “everything is fine” motto. Apparently, it’s not.

      The White House’s coronavirus response coordinator said Tuesday that anyone who has recently left New York should self-quarantine for 14 days in an effort to slow the spread of the virus in the US.

      “To everyone who has left New York over the last few days, because of the rate of the number of cases, you may have been exposed before you left New York,” Dr. Deborah Birx said at a White House press briefing, adding that “everybody who was in New York should be self-quarantining for the next 14 days to ensure that the virus doesn’t spread to others.”
      “No matter where they have gone, whether it’s Florida or North Carolina or out to the far reaches of Long Island,” Birx said.
      With surging positive tests, New York has become the epicenter of coronavirus cases in the US. Birx’s guidance comes as more than 51,000 cases were reported nationwide by Tuesday afternoon — more than half of them in New York.

      What should the 7 million still in New York do?

      Cult leaders usually end up getting their idiot followers killed. The question is whether Trump is like Jim Jones or Charles Manson.

      Trumpie tweet: This is really great news! I am so happy I can barely speak. He may have been a terrible presidential candidate and an even worse U.S. Senator, but he is a RINO, and I like him a lot!

      There will never be a vaccine for whatever bug ate Trumpie’s brain. SAD.

      The Lamestream Media Mutiny, Capt Trumpie has flipped his lid:

      “TheLameStream Media is the dominant force in trying to get me to keep our Country closed as long as possible in the hope that it will be detrimental to my election success,“The real people want to get back to work ASAP. We will be stronger than ever before!”

      The real people? Are there fake people we dont know about?

      Quick, hide the nuke codes.

      Easter? Why wait that long when Trump has it under control?

      The New York Times reported Trump first publicly talked about the virus in Davos, Switzerland when he was asked by a reporter, “Are there worries about a pandemic at this point?”

      The president responded: “No. Not at all. And we have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.”

      And if it’s not, he’s not responsible.

      Trump the NorEaster Bunny of Death and Repugnicans like that kill granny nutcase Patrick in Texass both have a serious problem in imagining lower levels of obscenity to get their base energized. This virus has got a longer life than both their political careers. A pox on both their demented houses.

      You really have to wonder what these virus deniers are thinking, claiming it is not as bad as the flu. Since the 1918 superflu when did countries run out of beds in hospitals to treat the flu? Yet of course, these demented fools dont have to worry about getting sick and dying. This virus only infects humans.

      The CV flu film coming to a theater near you

      You know several screenwriters are hard at work writing the inside story of the CV fiasco. Some will write Trump as Nero, a fool golfing in Not Altogether Being There while the CV fever burns down to zero. Others will write Trump as the strongman in the China Flu Syndrome meets Gone With the Wind who tries to overcome the lamestream media to tell the truth to the American public, but dies a hero defending his beloved Mar-a-Longone. SAD.

      Casting will be a challenge because Trump will have the rights and demand to play himself. The guy will drive the director mad because he will always go off script. Look for it on Netflix as most theaters will never be open for business.

      Donnie Trump ran on gutting the government. He delivered on that promise. The most truthful thing he said since he was elected is He is not responsible. Sleep well, Amerika.

      Trump won Michigan in 2016 by less than 10,000 votes.

      In a statement released on Friday, American Airlines announced that it is planning on cutting its year-on-year capacity by 70-80% for domestic, and 80-90% for international flights in May. The airline says that it is making cuts to address “record low customer demand.”

      “Millions of Americans will be infected by the coronavirus before the crisis is over and 100,000 to 200,000 could die, a leading infectious disease expert said Sunday. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on CNN’s State of the Union that computer models generally overestimate the final numbers, but that “we are going to have millions of cases.”

      Checking into Trump Tower. There is a vacancy on the penthouse.

      Helluva job, mr presidunce

      President Donald Trump acknowledged Sunday for the first time that deaths in the United States from coronavirus could reach 100,000 or more, adding that if the death toll stays at or below 100,000, “we all together have done a very good job.”

      Picture this

      The Trump cult has not voiced any concern about Mr presidunce’s bumbling that has contributed to the deaths of thousands of Americans. Instead, his cult is upset that somebody took a photo of 15 bodies awaiting cold storage. Dont know if these are the 15 cases Demented mentioned when things were under control.

      I don’t trust the elections, especially after Iowa; the voting system can be tampered with and the people running it are corrupt. The obvious solution– paper ballots, hand counted in public, is avoided. Why? For some reason this explanation for Sanders failure against Biden doesn’t get raised much.
