Thursday News Roundup: Joe Biden Needs More Fiber, the Times Beclowns Itself Again, and the Trouble With Polls

Pray for these debates to happen. – Think about it: If a debate breaks out this fall between Donald Trump, Kanye West and Joe Biden, we are all going to think we must have accidentally ingested a massive amount of peyote. It would be such a wild trip that we absolutely must find a way to make it happen.

Kanye West no longer supports President Trump, says Joe Biden not ...

This cracked me up, but only because it could be based in reality:

James Woods is a national treasure.

Your corrupt news media in action. – The New York Times weighed into the ongoing tit-for-tat exchange between Fox’s Tucker Carlson and depraved Democrat/Marxist Senator Tammy Duckworth. Because Duckworth cannot be defended based on facts and logic, the Times very predictably based its defense of her by proclaiming that, because Duckworth was born in Thailand and lost her legs serving her country in Iraq, she is above any form of criticism.

From a piece at The Federalist:

The New York Times charged Fox News’ Tucker Carlson of espousing nativism Wednesday after the prime time television host criticized Illinois Democratic Sen. Tammy Duckworth, who said Americans ought to consider cancelling George Washington and called American heroes honored in Trump’s Friday speech at Mount Rushmore “dead traitors.”

“Tammy Duckworth Confronts Nativist Smears From Tucker Carlson,” blared the Times headline. “Senator Tammy Duckworth of Illinois, a Thai-American Democrat who lost both of her legs fighting the Iraq war and is now a potential vice-presidential nominee, was targeted with nativist smears for the second night in a row on Tuesday by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.”

Carlson however, did no such thing. His rant had nothing to do with where she was born which was in Thailand, and nothing to do with her citizenship, which was granted by having an American father. See for Yourself:

As you can see, what Carlson actually did was take Duckworth to task for saying it’s time for Americans to “cancel” George Washington, without whose amazing courage America literally would not exist, and for characterizing him and many others, like Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, Ulysses Grant, Andrew Jackson, Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King and many other real American heroes as “dead traitors.”

Tammy Duckworth hates America, which of course just makes her a typical Democrat member of congress these days. But of course, her status as a Democrat is why the Times is obligated to defend her by any means available, even when the only means available happen to be intellectual dishonesty and abject stupidity. Because that’s what our corrupt news media does.

Hey, didja ever wonder what Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden believes with every fiber of his being? – Well, yesterday, the Unfrozen Caveman Presumptive Nominee tried to explain it, and sadness and unintentional hilarity ensued:

Verbatim Transcript:

Biden: Lonnie knows I believe this every fiber my being. We’re posed. I, what I proposed is, is………..it can be done. I hink we’re in a position ta, ta really make it happen. And my team and your team…already working closely together, and light, to light up the path forward here. Critical laws like the pro act to strengthen collective bargaining. On politics like the prevailing and pr……look, I guess…I’m gettin’, I’m, I’m gettin’, f, takin’ too much time. You know…

[End]

So, there you have it, folks – Joe Biden’s core beliefs, beliefs that he feels with every fiber of his being. Or maybe he meant he just didn’t get enough fiber in his Metamucil – it’s all so confusing. Who really knows?

So, you needed one more reason not to watch CNBC? – Well, here you go:

Can’t wait to see the ratings for that time block.

The trouble with polls, part 6,572. – A new national poll released yesterday by The Hill/HarrisX has Democrats concerned. Why? Because HarrisX is an actual legitimate polling organization that has little-to-no incentive to fake up its results.

This poll of 933 registered voters was taken on July 3-4, and it finds Biden leading President Trump by a margin of 43 to 39. That 4-point margin is well below the 8-12 point leads found by a series of media-driven polls released over the past month, and it has some Democrats very concerned, as reported in a piece at The Hill:

“I think a four point lead should be very concerning,” Democratic pollster and founding partner at Hit Strategies, Terrance Woodbury, told Hill.TV.

“We know the enthusiasm gaps between Biden and Trump, with Trump’s supporters being very enthusiastic and insistent on voting for him, margins that close are problematic,” Woodbury added.

A recent USA Today-Suffolk poll found half of Trump supporters said they were “very excited” to vote for the President while 27 percent of Biden supporters said the same.

New York Times-Siena College survey from early June showed similar gaps in voter enthusiasm when looking at battleground states.

[End]

As good an organization as HarrisX is, even its polls on this race remain extremely problematic, for one simple fact: Most Trump supporters are very uncomfortable expressing their real views with any stranger who claims to be a pollster. One poll of Trump voters on Twitter earlier this week showed that well over 70% of the respondents would fear retribution from employers or others for admitting to be a Trump supporter.

That’s how pervasive the media campaign to demonize supporters of the President of the United States has become.

Now, think of what that means for pollsters, even the really good ones like HarrisX. It means you can never be confident that you have compiled a truly representative sample of the American public, no matter how hard you try. This is why no one should waste a bunch of time worrying about these polls, especially four months in advance of Election Day.

Those Democrats have every reason to be worried, because if Biden really does have a 4-point “lead” in the current polls, it likely means he really trails the President by half a dozen points or even more.

That is all.

Today’s news moves at a faster pace than ever. Whatfinger is my go-to source for keeping up with all the latest events in real time.

    If Maxwell is taken out, it will a sudden unexpected covid infection.

    It is interesting how Duckworth’s injuries qualify her for fawning sympathetic coverage, whereas Dan Crenshaw is mocked. As was Bob Dole in 1992.

      Yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyep.

    Only 39% for Trump in the Harris poll is ridiculous. George McGovern in 1972 got more than 39% of the vote and McGovern was not the incumbent President of the United States. Trump will definitely get more than 39% of the vote. Hence, this poll is way off.

    President Trump needs to make sure that no matter what, Joe Biden has to step up on the debate stage. If not then, he needs to be as hard on the demoncrats and the Biden campaign as he can. Scorch the earth beneath their feet for not holding to tradition. Covid’s no excuse. Throw the social distancing, limited persons in the debate area (Biden and Trump six feet apart, as well as those asking the questions, no audience, which should never be allowed imho as they serve no real purpose other than to jeer and cheer and is usually comprised of mostly demoncrats anyway) and dare them to tell the voters why after all this ballyhoo about pandemic rules and compliance can’t it be done at a debate.

      It is never going to happen. May as well accept it now. The Dems simply cannot allow it; the election would be over in a matter of minutes.

      1. Silas - July 9, 2020

        Unforunately, my friend, I am certain that is true. Hence the scorch earth rant. 🙂
