On Biden and Reade, The New York Times Renders Itself Beyond Parody

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

It would be humorous if it weren’t so tiresomely predictable at this point. – This might be hard for you to believe, but there are still millions of Americans out there who believe the New York Times is a “news” organization. That hasn’t been the case since at the least the 1930s, when the Times served as an apologist platform for Adolph Hitler, just as it today serves as little more than an apologist platform for the national Democrat Party.

One of my favorite comedies is “So I Married an Axe Murderer,” starring Mike Meyers in multiple roles. He plays the lead character, and also the lead character’s father. The father is a crusty old first generation immigrant from Scotland who walks around in his underwear passing wind and hurling insults, and who believes that Colonel Sanders is the head of a worldwide conspiracy.

One of that film’s funniest scenes involves not the father, but the also-Scottish, long-suffering mother, who at one point asks her son “Charlie, hand me the paper,” pointing to a copy of the old supermarket tabloid The Weekly World News.

“Mom,” Charlie replies, “I find it interesting that you call The Weekly World News ‘the paper.’ A paper contains facts.”

Well, if the New York Times is in any guide, not anymore.

Over the weekend, the Democrat activists who make up the Times’ editorial board published one of the most outrageous op/ed pieces in U.S. newspaper history, one that crusty old long-time reporter and anchor Brit Hume referred to on Twitter Sunday as being “Beyond parody.” It truly is an amazing case of a stunning lack of self-awareness, highly-predictable hypocrisy and just plain old bad faith to the public interest that the free press is supposed to dutifully protect.

The piece begins with a summary of Tara Reade’s accusations of sexual harassment, sexual assault and what the hypocritical #MeToo movement would characterize as “rape” if Biden were anyone other than the presumptive presidential nominee of its favorite political party. But then the editorial board lurches into this paragraph:

In 2018, this board advocated strongly for a vigorous inquiry into accusations of sexual misconduct raised against Brett Kavanaugh when he was nominated to a seat on the Supreme Court.

Why yes, yes it did. It actually advocated for an investigation not by congress or some disinterested 3rd party, but by the FBI, which, thanks to the media uproar at the time, ended up taking place and finding nothing. And remember, the wild accusations hurled by the obvious liar Christine Blasey Ford had none of the true contemporaneous supporting attestations and evidence that support Ms. Reade’s claims.

In its very next three sentences, the Times then says the following:

Mr. Biden’s pursuit of the presidency requires no less. His campaign, and his party, have a duty to assure the public that the accusations are being taken seriously. The Democratic National Committee should move to investigate the matter swiftly and thoroughly, with the full cooperation of the Biden campaign.

You read that right: Where the Times called for a freaking FBI investigation into a guy who wanted to become one of nine Supreme Court justices, it wants the guy seeking to become the one and only holder of the highest and most powerful office in the land to be investigated by his own political party. If this were 1955, this same editorial board would no doubt advocate that famous mob boss Frank Costello be investigated by a committee of the Five Families.

It’s maybe the most absurd thing ever printed in a U.S. newspaper, but it only gets worse from there. Here’s the very next paragraph, in which the Times literally lays out the DNC talking points on Ms. Reade:

Ms. Reade’s account has some apparent inconsistencies. Last year, she was one of several women who came forward with complaints of Mr. Biden hugging or touching them in ways that made them uncomfortable, but she did not raise the assault accusation until this March. She says she tried to share her story with the media earlier, only to get “shut down.”

First, the #MeToo people have told us thousands of times over the past two years that it is entirely common for a woman who has been sexually assaulted to be reluctant to come forward with her full accusations, largely due to paragraphs just like this one printed in the newspapers. This paragraph is a literal outrage in the context of women who have suffered sexual abuse.

And that last sentence, which attempts to lead readers to believe Ms. Reade is not being honest about being shut down by the media earler? On Sunday, the Associated Press admitted to having an interview with Ms. Reade months ago on this subject, only to decide to kill the story.

Think this editorial cannot possibly get any worse? Boy are you in for a disappointment. Several more paragraphs down, we get this little gem:

While understandable, this concern is not prohibitive — and Mr. Biden’s word is insufficient to dispel the cloud. Any inventory should be strictly limited to information about Ms. Reade and conducted by an unbiased, apolitical panel, put together by the D.N.C. and chosen to foster as much trust in its findings as possible. Admittedly, this would be a major undertaking. Mr. Biden served 36 years in the Senate. He turned over nearly 2,000 boxes and more than 400 gigabytes of data to the University of Delaware; most of it has not been cataloged. But the question at hand is no less than Mr. Biden’s fitness for the presidency. No relevant memo should be left unexamined.

You read that right: As its’ justification for failing to call for an FBI investigation as it did in the Kavanaugh case, the Times asks its readers to believe that the DNC – by definition a political entity, and in practice one of the most despicably and aggressively hyper-political entities on the face of the earth – is capable of conducting an “apolitical” investigation of its own nominee.

The suggestion is absurd on its face: Who exactly would the Times suggest placing on such an “apolitical panel”? In this society in which literally everything and everyone has been politicized, it is frankly impossible that such a panel could be assembled by anyone, no matter how well-meaning, and DNC Chairman Tom Perez is certainly not well-meaning.

As for the University of Delaware records, they’ve already been scrubbed, and the Times editorial board knows it. The Biden campaign admits that several of its operatives spent days scouring those records weeks ago. Whatever documents relevant to Ms. Reade’s allegations that may have once been there are now safely long-gone and likely burned.

The Times, again as predictable as the sun rising in the West (at least, according to the Times), closes its cynical appeal to the DNC to be “apolitical” with this hyper-partisan final paragraph:

Mr. Biden has set higher standards for himself. That has been central to his appeal. His campaign is founded on the promise of restoring sanity, civility and decency to the presidency. Even if certainty isn’t possible in this matter, the American people deserve at least the confidence that he, and the Democratic Party, have made every effort to bring the truth to light.

You knew there was no way this collection of Democrat activists could get through 500 words without at least one attempt to smear President Trump, right? Of course you did.

The notion that Joe Biden has set “higher standards for himself” is laugh-out-loud ridiculous. This is a guy who, on the campaign trail, has continued his habit of fondling children and women, holding them too close, sniffing them and rubbing them with his spindly fingers. He apparently cannot help himself. He is a guy who has on multiple occasions this year challenged attendees at his own rallies to go outside for a fight. This is civility? This is decency?

And as for “sanity,” well, let’s be honest and recognize that Biden is also a guy who has repeatedly and clearly demonstrated that he often has no idea where he is, often is incapable of reading from a teleprompter, needs to have his despicable wife sitting next to him to keep him on message and has only a sporadic acquaintance with reality.

Joe Biden is not capable of handling the office of the presidency, and the Times editorial board knows this. But they just keep lying to their readers on behalf of the Democrat Party nevertheless.

Beyond parody, indeed. Beyond decency, in fact.

That is all.

    My fondest hope is to live long enough to see the New York Times fold and its doors shuttered.

    At the rate that it is going, I like my chances.

    In the near term, the Tara Reade issue will be successfully blacked out by the media. It is grievously unfair and hypocritical, but energy is best spend elsewhere.

    Many are encouraging Houstonians to flood this un-American snitch site with false reports–I hope they do.

    This Chicom site insists that I’m “posting too quickly. Slow down.”
    Well, another day, another techscam. YouTube and Twitter aren’t the only ones running a scam, and which must be broken up and allowed to be free again.

    But speaking of scams, has anyone read the research about the CCP virus and diabetes? Not quite the death sentence it would seem: type II diabetes that is managed is not a problem with the virus. Of course, they want people to stay inside, get no sun (and thus no vitamin D) to not exercise, to despair (stress raises glucose levels via stress hormones) and they basically just want us to die.

    You’ll never see that in the “NY Times,” which wants us all gone. My advice? Get a stationary bike, a treadmill, a Peloton, a Nordic Track, or a Total Gym (have an older model and highly recommend it!) If funds are short, try used. Also recommend a heavy bag, not a real heavy bag: one of those floor-models that aren’t really heavy. Fill bottom with water or sand. Make sure to wear hand covering!

    1. phineas gage - May 4, 2020

      I have always just used the great outdoors–don’t much like walking inside on a machine, plus it saves even more money since the cost is zero.

      Occasionally get rained out, but not often.

      1. Jimmy MacAfee - May 4, 2020

        Outdoors is better, for sure. As I said, vitamin D, which many in the healthcare community (lots of doctors too) say is critically important to keeping a strong immune system to prevent infections like flu and others.

        Even cutting the grass with a self-push mower is better than nothing. Most of our Lowes and Home Depots have full parking lots, and I’m guessing that people are staying active as they can! Glad you are, too!

    2. brian - May 4, 2020

      Using the outdoors is free… and you’ll be exercising your other parts as well like your freedom to move about where you wish.

    QuidPro has indeed “set higher standards for himself.” Higher amounts of ill-begotten gains. Higher levels of corruption. And acting like he’s high all the time (though it’s just dementia.)

    He’s in a competition to set the highest standards, and so far, the Clinton crime machine is winning. Try harder, Gropey! You can DO it!

    1. phineas gage - May 4, 2020

      These sexual assault accusations won’t take him down because the media won’t permit it. They have renounced any standards or principles they might have had in their pursuit of the Bad Orange Man.

      What will destroy Biden’s candidacy is his dissolving mind. It simply can no longer be hidden.

      1. Jimmy MacAfee - May 4, 2020

        Some are claiming that Obumbler will run as H. Rotten Clinton’s VP. They claim there is no precedent, and that it could happen. The day that announcement occurs, the civil war begins.

        1. Jonesy - May 4, 2020

          If so, the civil war may start in the Democrat party first. Wouldn’t they still have to address Obumbler as Mr. President? That would be awkward. Err…I’m not sure Hitlery would want to share the spot light if she becomes the nominee.

      2. Jonesy - May 4, 2020

        The only reason we are seeing any comments from Libs about the Tara Reade allegations is because they have to say something. When forced to comment on something they cannot defend, they defend it anyway and it comes out like this – laughable. Yes, it is shockingly hypocritical.

        These allegations really don’t mater to the DNC, Biden will not be the nominee. He can’t survive 5 mins of a TV interview. As you say his mind is dissolving. No way they put him in a debate against Trump.

  6. Jimmy MacAfee - May 4, 2020

    The Chicoms are at it again: I’ll post this as often as I can, until it shows up:

    Dave, the Times was also an apologist for Stalin: Walter Duranty and his “workers paradise” and all that crock of lies. He is worth investigating, because he and the “Times” caused a great number of Americans to fail to recognize the danger of Communism. Lots of Americans were blinded. The Chinese Communists are NOT our friends.

    Even if the WaPo and NY Slimes claims they are.

  7. Jimmy MacAfee - May 4, 2020

    Walter Duranty:

    “Portrait of Evil: Walter Duranty, The New York Times Moscow Bureau Chief Who Deliberately Hid Soviet-Imposed Famine that Killed Millions in Ukraine”

    “Walter Duranty (1884-1957) was a classic made man and noxious stooge who played a primary cover-up role in the communistic mass looting and genocide of Ukrainians during a widespread famine (1932–1933) in the USSR. Duranty was Moscow bureau chief of The New York Times (aka New York Slimes) for 14 years (1922–1936).”

    https://www.winterwatch.net/2019/06/portrait-of-evil-walter-duranty-the-new-york-times-moscow-bureau-chief-who-deliberately-hid-soviet-imposed-famine-that-killed-millions-in-ukraine/

    1. Jimmy MacAfee - May 4, 2020

      The parallels are sinister and troubling: while Obumbler plotted to give Ukraine to the Russians (he didn’t give them anything but blankets and K-rations did he?) and his henchmen robbed Ukraine blind and put it into debt, and made sure the honest people were kept out of government, and while Ukraine-born stooges (Vindman, for one) opposed President Trump – (who gave Ukraine anti-tank missiles, which is the only reason Putin didn’t invade) – the backstory is just as troubling. (Read the article I linked.) And then thank G0D we have President Trump in office at this time in history.

    2. phineas gage - May 4, 2020

      The difference is this–as evil as people like Duranty were in the first part of the 20th-century, they were true believers in the new communist world order. As far as they were concerned, if a certain number of deaths were required to usher in the new utopia, then so be it.

      The people supporting these regimes today have decades of history of communist regimes to look back upon, with their bloody record of brutal genocide and destruction. Therefore they must willingly suspend their disbelief, and it is done in an entirely cynical and ideological manner. That is far, far worse.

      To quote David Mamet’s famous principle, “In order to continue advancing their illogical arguments modern liberals have to pretend not to know things…”

      1. Jonesy - May 4, 2020

        Reminds me of Reagan’s quote about liberals: “It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.”

      2. Jimmy MacAfee - May 4, 2020

        Duranty was in a position to at least alert the world to what was going on – real-time. He was aware of the atrocities; he covered them up. Without Duranty, perhaps a lot less would have died? Or at least we would have been open about it.

        In other words, if all we have to go on is history, and history has been altered to fit the narratives of the Left, and we ignore what we see, hear and know, then we are as guilty as those who observed the Holocaust and said nothing.

        1. Jimmy MacAfee - May 4, 2020

          They (NY Times) knew who Duranty was at the time, and they allowed him his forum:

          “Joseph Alsop and Andrew Stuttaford spoke out against Duranty during the Pulitzer Prize controversy. “Lying was Duranty’s stock in trade,” commented Alsop.”

          “Both British intelligence and American engineer Zara Witkin (1900–1940), who worked in the USSR from 1932 to 1934, confirmed that Duranty knowingly misrepresented information about the nature and scale of the famine.”

          “Next, Malcolm Muggeridge, the Manchester Guardian’s Moscow correspondent, traveled to Ukraine secretly and at great risk. He was appalled at the scenes of mass starvation and heaps of dead bodies that he witnessed and described them in his reports.
          Duranty tried to attack Muggeridge and “debunk” his reports. Muggeridge retorted by stating, “Duranty is the greatest liar of any journalist I have ever met.”

          https://www.winterwatch.net/2019/06/portrait-of-evil-walter-duranty-the-new-york-times-moscow-bureau-chief-who-deliberately-hid-soviet-imposed-famine-that-killed-millions-in-ukraine/

          Future generations will hate us because we did not learn, and chose to do nothing to prevent the greatest liars to occupy the presses and write drivel intended to deceive the masses.

        2. phineas gage - May 4, 2020

          I’m not excusing Duranty or the Times in any way, just contrasting it to the Times pushing communist propaganda in 2020 in clear denial of history.

    3. Gregg - May 4, 2020

      It would not surprise me in the least if we were to find out that the then NY Governor, FDR, arranged for the CS Walter Durante to be the Stalin Stooge from the NYT.

      (D) NYT & (D) NYGs – Perfect together for the last 90 plus years!

  8. Jimmy MacAfee - May 4, 2020

    Coming soon to a site near you! Very near you.

    “An anti-Trump Democratic-aligned political action committee advised by retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal is planning to deploy an information warfare tool that received initial funding from DARPA, the Pentagon’s secretive research arm — transforming technology originally envisioned as a way to fight ISIS propaganda into a campaign platform to benefit Joe Biden.”

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/dems-deploying-darpa-funded-information-warfare-tool-to-promote-biden

    Thing that bothers me about certain generals: they didn’t utter a peep when Barack al bin Lying decimated the military, laying off soldiers, and refusing to replenish arms of all kinds (even down to bullets.) Every serving general under al Bin Lying who criticizes President Trump should be held accountable for saying nothing while our Armed Services were thoroughly screwed.

    And McChrystal’s role in the death of Michael Hastings has not been ruled in, nor ruled out. ‘Twas no accident. Was the general a butt-buddy of Hysterical John B? A birdie is singing.

    1. Gregg - May 4, 2020

      But the IRS and other ‘civilian’ agencies apparently got plenty of bullets and guns to shoot them.

      Why can’t/hasn’t Trump transferred these weapons to the Army to make up the shortfall?

      1. brian - May 4, 2020

        BILLIONS in squandered tax payer monies by corrupt bureaucrats and politicals saturating every nook and cranny of government. None of these parasites is going to call attention to their malfeasance so it may be likely Trump doesn’t even know.

        The other thing the enemy does, especially today, is flood the ‘victim’ with information overload. Its a CIA tactic to hide in plain sight. Information overload and copious dis-information means by the time anyone figures out what is going on, they’ve completed the mission and are gone. Should anyone get a whiff of something wrong they toss up rabbits to chase.

    2. phineas gage - May 4, 2020

      DARPA is into all sorts of interesting things:

      https://www.wearethemighty.com/robots-that-eat-people

      Yeah, nothing to worry about there…..
