Thursday News Roundup: Drama Queen Generals, Northam Virtue Signals, and a Circular Commie Firing Squad

How did the U.S. military get overrun by leftists? – That’s the open question today after former Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis outed himself in a histrionic anti-Trump opinion piece in the leftist rage The Atlantic. Mattis becomes just the latest in a long line of generals and admirals who have shown themselves to be dogmatic leftists over the past decade.

Much of this leftist takeover of the military upper echelons can of course be laid at the feet of Barack Obama – who also reared his annoying head yesterday – but not all of it can. Because guys like Mattis and John Kelly and H.R. McMaster and William McRaven had moved into high positions well before Obama was even elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006.

If you still doubt Mattis’s true political leanings, Lara Logan reminds us in a series of tweets about his odd behavior during the Trump Transition in 2016/early 2017:

She continues:

They were shocked by who Mattis wanted as his number 2 – he was pushing for Michelle Flournoy, the same person HRC had reportedly picked to lead DOD in her Administration, acc to sources/articles at the time, such as one Politico published in Nov 2016. They put it this way:

“THE NEXT ADMINISTRATION – HILLARY CLINTON’S HISTORY-MAKING DEFENSE SECRETARY IN WAITING”. Always wondered why Mattis would want someone like that at his side? Seems unlikely she would have been loyal to the President she would have served – was he?

Men like him knew Gen Mike Flynn was loyal to the US not Russia, yet they said nothing? As Sec Def, Mattis would have had access to all intelligence. What happened to that military code of honor in Flynn’s case? What about his Commander-in-Chief? He was silent then – but not now.

[End]

Oh.

And hey, Mattis just happens to be hawking a new book. So he’s not just a leftist, he’s a shameless self-promoting hack as well.

Good lord.

Then there is the case of current Defense Secretary Mark Esper, who went out of his way to politically undermine his Commander in Chief at a press conference on Wednesday, even as he claimed in his next breath to be non-political. Esper’s position on using the U.S. military, beyond the National Guard, to quell the rioting is certainly not unreasonable:

“The option to use active duty forces in a law enforcement role should only be used as a matter of last resort, and only in the most urgent and dire of situations. We are not in one of those situations now. I do not support invoking the Insurrection Act,” he told reporters.

That’s fine, and it’s an opinion shared by many. But there is a chain of command in place in our armed services that must be respected if they are to be effective fighting forces. Esper’s public remarks were decidedly political in nature and may well conflict with those of the President. That is not his role, and it was an act of insubordination. It was a purely political act, one that put the lie to Esper’s claims of being non-political and undermined his own credibility and authority.

President Trump should not tolerate it and ought to be looking for a new SecDef.

Then Esper can go write a book of his own.

Speaking of dogma… – Did you know you’re a racist if you go out and try to clean up your community after a violent riot? That’s what these three ladies discovered the hard way:

Yore attenshun puh-lease good citizens! Tha Raght Honorable Guvnah of tha Commonwealth a’ Virginia, Ralph Coonman Northam, is a-gonna do some virtue signalin’! – Ralph Northam, the racist, baby-killing fascist Democrat who still has his state in a lockdown, is going to make a grand virtue-signaling gesture this morning at a press conference in which he will announce he is removing a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

It’s his version of taking a knee.

These are not good odds. – At least 7 black people have now been killed during riots that have taken place in response to a single black person. Never forget that these riots have been organized and executed by the Democrat support groups Antifa and Black Lives Matter, and facilitated by Democrat mayors.

And now to leave you with some good news! The communist Bernie Sanders supporters have formed a circular firing squad! – Ok, it’s just on Twitter, but still, it’s always a good thing for America when the commies are fighting among themselves.

From a report at Politico:

“The left circular firing squad never rests and never misses a beat squandering an opportunity to get its head out of its ass to actually organize people outside of the cult,” said Jonathan Tasini, the author of “The Essential Bernie Sanders and His Vision for America” and a national surrogate for Sanders in 2016. “I just find it sad and head-shaking that this kind of crossfire is coming out now when the progressive movement has the opportunity to talk to millions of people.”

The skirmish began when David Sirota, Sanders’ former speechwriter, took a shot at the policy task forces that Sanders and presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden created in hopes of healing party rifts. Ex-campaign manager FaizShakir and Analilia Mejia, Sanders’ former national political director, have been in talks about the endeavor with top Biden advisers Anita Dunn — who is loathed by some progressives for previously consulting with disgracedHollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein about a New York Times investigation — and Ron Klain.

“I don’t know who needs to hear this, but many of us don’t want to hear career Beltway political operatives boasting about task forces while this shit is going on right now,” Sirota tweeted. “Jfc — try to be a little less tone deaf.”

That prompted Mike Casca, Sanders’ current spokesman, to make an explosive charge shortly before 11 p.m. about a progressive newsletter Sirota currently runs, after managing a similar project on the 2020 campaign.The publication offers a paid annual subscription option at a cost of $50.

“[D]amn right,” Casca tweeted, “real change happens when you steal an email list from the campaign and use it to create your own paid newsletter. why can’t anyone see that? anyway, subscribe if you can.”

The sudden remarks exposed the deep frustration among senior Sanders staffers about some ex-aides’ second-guessing about the campaign’s mistakes. Along with Casca, Shakir hit back Tuesday at former Sanders aide Winnie Wong, who has been publicly bashing him and senior adviser Jeff Weaver for weeks over their handling of the primary and post-campaign moves.

Why Joe Biden had to be the Democrat Party’s “Presumptive” Nominee

The Evening Campaign Update

You all understand by now that the fix was in for Joe Biden, right? Everyone gets why Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe literally had to be the Democrat Party’s “presumptive” nominee for the presidency this year?

This “presumptive” nomination was never in doubt. It took me a long time to figure that out, but the simplicity of it all finally popped into my head earlier today, as I was editing my third “Obama Knew” piece of the last four days.

Yes, Obama knew everything. He knew from cradle to grave. He knew about all the illegal spying on the Trump campaign beginning in late 2015 and continuing right into the Trump Transition and even into the Trump presidency. He knew about the Clinton Campaign and DNC splitting the costs for the fake Steele Dossier, and knew it was all based on lies from agents of foreign nations like Russia.

Obama knew about all the FISA fraud and the effort to entrap and frame Mike Flynn. He knew about the literal wiretapping of Trump Tower and knew about James Comey’s effort to entrap and frame new President Donald Trump. He knew about all the perjury and fraud and subterfuge and open sedition and arguably outright treason.

And guess who else knew about all of that in real time as it was happening? Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe Biden.

That, folks, is why no one else could possibly become the presumptive Democrat nominee. Bernie Sanders never really had a chance. Nor did Preacher Pete, or Fauxcahontas or any of the other 7,000 candidates for the nomination.

See, Biden knows all the deep, dark secrets of the Obama years. He knows where all the bodies are buried. And more to the point, he participated in burying them. And even more to the point, he was the only declared candidate for the nomination this time who had that status.

Thus, Biden was the only person in the race who Obama and the evil minions who run the DNC could possibly allow to secure the nomination. After all, he had real skin in the game. If everything suddenly spills out into the public domain – as it has been doing in drips and drabs over the past few weeks – Quid Pro Joe is as much at risk as anyone else, including Obama.

Think about it: one of the things Biden knows – as Obama does – is that the DNC was not really “hacked” by the Russians in 2016, as the organization has falsely claimed for four long years.  Could the current DNC minions really risk having an unknown quantity like Preacher Pete walking into the Oval Office on January 20 of next year and trust him to be willing to become an after-the-fact accomplice?

What about Kamala Harris? Could she be trusted with the keys to the kingdom?

Fauxcahontas can’t even be trusted to tell the truth about her grandmother’s racial background. You think Obama can trust her to keep him out of all of this? Please.

No, this was always destined to be Biden’s “presumptive” nomination. He is the only candidate who is personally at risk, and thus the only one who could be fully trusted to immediately shut down any further investigations into anything related to Spygate/Obamagate on his first day in office.

Of course, the problem with this plan becomes more manifest with each passing day: Quid Pro China Joe is increasingly and obviously impaired. He is not capable of conducting a video conference call, much less the office of the presidency.

But note that I keep using the term “presumptive” nominee. That’s because Biden doesn’t have to be the actual nominee. All he has to do is remain semi-lucid for another couple of months, until all the party’s primary contests have come and gone, in order to ensure that Sanders has no ability to accumulate enough delegates to win the nomination on a first ballot vote at the convention.

Because, as Yoda said in one of those Star Wars flicks a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, “There is another.”

Yes, there is another. Another prominent Democrat who also has plenty of skin and personal risk in this game. Another who has been waiting in the wings all along, hoping for a chance to jump in and steal this nomination.

That, of course, would be the Pantsuit Princess herself, Hillary Rotten Clinton. The same Fainting Felon who was supposed to win the election in 2016 and sweep everything under the rug the day she assumed office in 2017. Oops. But now she might get a second chance to finish the job.

It’s all becoming clear now. It just took awhile to figure it all out.

That is all.

Clinton/Kerry Advisor Breaks the Democrat Omerta on Biden [UPDATED]

The Evening Campaign Update

Things are getting pretty hairy for Quid Pro China Joe Biden, though he is most likely blissfully unaware of it all. The video clip released on Friday of Tara Reade’s mother calling in to the Larry King Live show in 1993 to talk about Biden’s alleged sexual assault on her daughter has been making the rounds on social media all day. More importantly, the implications of the video – that, unlike any of the liar accusers of Brett Kavanaugh, it demonstrates clear contemporaneous proof that Ms. Reade told family and friends about Biden’s abuse and harassment – are beginning to sink in on the few remaining Democrats who still have a conscience.

One such Democrat apparently is Democrat operative Peter Daou, who served as an advisor to both John Kerry and Hillary Clinton. After seeing the video of Reade’s mother’s call-in to King, Daou on Saturday posted a thread on Twitter begging Creepy Uncle Joe to quit the race. The full text of that thread appears below, but first, here is the video clip for those who have not yet seen it:

Now, the thread by Mr. Daou:

It continues…

4. Defeating Trump is NOT OPTIONAL. 5. To avoid potential catastrophe in Nov., #Biden should withdraw. 6. #Warren, #Harris, #Klobuchar, #Buttigieg, #Castro, etc. could replace Biden. 7. #Bernie can restart his campaign. 8. We can reboot the primary and give voters a choice.

9. This is the ethical position AND the smarter strategy to beat Trump. 10. We lose ALL moral authority if we embrace “the lesser of two accused rapists.” 11. Polls show other Dem candidates can win. PRINCIPLES MATTER. WE CAN BEAT TRUMP AND PROTECT OUR VALUES.

ADDENDUM 1: I made the same arguments about #Franken and #Kavanaugh. If #MeToo means anything, it CANNOT BE APPLIED ON A PARTISAN BASIS. And for the record, I also think the same standard should apply to Bill Clinton’s accusers.

ADDENDUM 2: My thread is not about #Bernie winning. I explicitly stated that Biden can be replaced with any of the other Dem candidates and we can restart the primary and give voters a choice. This is about RED MORAL LINES. Sexual assault is unquestionably one of those lines.

ADDENDUM 3: I want to defeat Trump and the GOP as much as anyone in America. I’ve spent my life fighting them. But we cannot defeat Trump with a lesser of evils approach. If you really want to win, DO NOT COMPROMISE BASIC MORAL STANDARDS. It is a sure formula for losing.

ADDENDUM 4: Spare me the “you’re helping Trump” b.s. The only Dems helping Trump are Pelosi, Schumer, and their establishment colleagues who have given him a space force, Patriot Act, trade bill, ICE funding, and all the rightwing judges his heart desires.

[End]

Obviously, if you hadn’t already figured it out, Daou is also a big fan of The Commie, Bernie Sanders, and supported him during the primary season, which, as he points out, hasn’t ended yet.

But…Daou is about to discover some harsh truths about the Democrat Party. The first being that, to the Democrats, PRINCIPLES DON’T MATTER, no matter how many tweets you issue in all caps wishing they did.

The second being that the #MeToo movement also has no principles, means nothing and in this case most certainly WILL BE APPIED ON A PARTISAN BASIS. If you think for one second that prominent #MeToo hypocrites like Alyssa Milano are going to suddenly develop a conscience and toss their favorite Unfrozen Caveman Senator overboard after having spent the last solid year ignoring the crystal clear reality of his rapidly declining cognitive state, you are living on Fantasy Island.

The third thing Mr. Daou is going to discover is that, before issuing his Twitter thread, he probably should have taken a moment to reflect on the fact that the consequences for Bill Clinton’s being a lifelong serial abuser of women were that he served two terms as Arkansas Governor, two terms as U.S. President and became fabulously wealthy and praised by Democrat hypocrites once he left office.

In other words, Daou’s decision to become the first semi-prominent Democrat to break the Party’s hush order on the Reade allegations is likely to end up being far more damaging to him than it is Quid Pro China Joe, unless other semi-prominent Dems decide to join him. If that happens, things could eventually get pretty dicey for Biden, even though he mostly likely won’t even understand it’s happening.

UPDATE: In what has to be considered an important development, CNN corrupt talking head Chris Cillizza becomes the first person from that despicable organization to break the silence on the Read allegations with this tweet:

Oh, my. Oh, my, my, my. Stay tuned.

 

Joe Biden Gets Trolled With His Cringey 'I'm On Team Joe' Campaign ...

Down Goes the Commie! Down Goes the Commie!

Obligatory post noting the inevitable – Bernie Sanders cancels his campaign following his latest loss to Dementia Joe Biden in Wisconsin.

From a report in the New York Times:

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont dropped out of the Democratic presidential race on Wednesday, concluding a quest for the White House that began five years ago in relative obscurity but ultimately elevated him as a champion of the working class, a standard-bearer of American liberalism and the leader of a self-styled political revolution.

Mr. Sanders’s exit from the race establishes former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. as the presumptive nominee to challenge President Trump, and leaves the progressive movement without a prominent voice in the 2020 race.

In a live stream on Wednesday morning, Mr. Sanders, eloquent but without his characteristic spark, was by turns gracious and resolute as he announced his decision. “I cannot in good conscience continue to mount a campaign that cannot win and which would interfere with the important work required of all of us in this difficult hour,” Mr. Sanders said.

Though he made it clear that he viewed Mr. Biden as the party’s 2020 nominee, he said he would remain on the ballot in states that still have primaries and would continue to gather delegates — a move that would give him leverage to influence the Democratic platform and continue carrying his message.

[End]

Ok, so, he’s “suspending” his campaign, but will remain on the ballot and hopes to keep accumulating delegates. That way, he’ll be able to exert maximum pressure to ensure the Democrat Party keeps pushing his Marxist ideology on the public. I’m sure Dementia Joe’s handlers are thrilled about that part of the deal.

Here is how President Donald Trump hilariously responded to the news of the Commie’s demise:

No word on where Mr. Sanders’ 4th vacation home will be located, or what model new car he demanded in return for ending his latest quest for the presidency, but you can be sure he squeezed as much out of this opportunity as he possibly could.

Adios, Commie.

Biden Bumbles, Stumbles and Mumbles as Trump’s Approval Ratings Soar

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

Trump’s numbers are booming. – Two new polls released on Tuesday show President Donald Trump gaining popularity thanks to his handling of this China Virus crisis. His overall approval ratings reached new highs in both the Gallup Poll (49%) and the latest HarrisX Survey (54%). The Gallup poll now pegs his approval for his handling of the China Virus at a whopping 60%, with just 38% disapproval.

This is very troubling news for the elder abusers attempting to pass Quid Pro Joe Biden off as someone who can handle the job. Very troubling news indeed.

They never should’ve given up on Operation Hide The Geezer. – For a week there, the world was Quid Pro Joe’s oyster. His recent sweeps of state after state after state in his nomination contest with The Commie, combined with government advisories to stay at home and avoid contact with others had provided the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator and his evil staff the perfect excuse to keep their obviously declining candidate under wraps.

The inability to hold more campaign “rallies” is a blessing to Creepy Uncle Joe.  Think of it: No more need to partition off small high school gymnasiums with temporary walls at mid-court because he couldn’t fill them up. No more ability for the handsy candidate to incur embarrassing videos of him inappropriately fondling young girls and other people’s wives.  No more uncontrollable live events where his handlers risk the clearly impaired candidate going off-script and referring to God as “you know, the thing.” No more opportunities for the “tough guy” Biden to curse, insult and challenge auto workers to a fight when they ask him semi-tough questions.

It was without doubt an elder abuser’s dream world. They could have let the Geezer sit in his study for weeks, maybe months, doing nothing but pretending to sign off on press releases and tweets written for him by others and no one in the corrupt news media would have said boo about it. Hell, most of them would have gone on and on about what a statesman he was being, setting such a great example for the rest of the population.

Why, nobody shelters in place like that great American, Joe Biden, by golly!

But it is always the natural tendency of campaign professionals to “do something,” and when they began to see President Donald Trump’s public approval ratings shooting up as the people started taking his daily public briefings seriously, the alarm bells sounded in Bidenland. Even more threatening in the nearer term, they saw New York Governor Andrew Cuomo doing his own daily briefings and receiving increasing praise from the same corrupt media toadies that have been in the tank for Quid Pro Joe. With every passing day, it seemed to them that Cuomo was becoming more and more of a threat to sweep into the July convention in Milwaukee in the role of the “white night” to save the party from nominating an increasingly incapacitated candidate.

Thus it was that after just one week of successfully hiding the Geezer, Biden’s abusive handlers decided they had to roll him out in front of the cameras again. They touted their latest scam as an effort by Quid Pro Joe to hold regular counter-briefings so he can “correct the record” because of all of the evil Trump’s “lies” to the American public. They set up a handy teleprompter and video feed in the study of Biden’s palatial home and handed him an 8-minute script in a gigantic font for the Geezer to hopefully read verbatim.

That approach almost worked semi-well during Biden’s first “counter-briefing,” until the teleprompter malfunctioned, causing Biden to start stammering and gesturing to his staff to get the damn thing scrolling again:

That was Monday’s fiasco. Things only got worse on Tuesday, as the Biden handlers decided to throw all caution to the wind and roll him out there for a series of softball interviews on CNN, ABC and MSNBC.

Appearing with the execrable hack Jake Tapper on CNN, Quid Pro Joe repeatedly coughed into his fist, so many times that Tapper felt the need to give the former Vice President of the United States instructions on the proper way to cough into his elbow, a decades-old technique of which the Geezer was apparently blissfully unaware:

In an interview on MSNBC with despicable Nicolle Wallace, Quid Pro Joe repeatedly got confused and stopped in mid-sentence:

In that same interview, the pathetic fan girl was so anxious to get rid of him that she felt the need to say thank you no fewer than seven times:

The coup de gras came in an appearance on ABC News. There he was asked by Sara Haynes if President Trump is right when he says “we can’t let the cure be worse than the virus itself.”

Biden’s answer: “We have to take care of the cure. That will make the problem worse no matter what.”

I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

Naturally, the liberal activist Haynes had no follow-up question to that gibberish answer.

But the reality for the Biden camp is that they cannot expect to survive the grueling campaign to come via corrupt media bias alone. As this post demonstrates, these clips are viewed by millions of people every day on social media. Try as they might, the evil minions who spend their days censoring conservative thought and speech on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and all the other platforms are simply not capable of hiding them from a curious public.

Don’t get me wrong: They can almost certainly make it to the July convention through media bias and censorship, because the Democrat voter base is really good at refusing to deal with reality. But the general election campaign is an entirely different animal, one that cannot be rigged by the DNC. And the reality of the Unfrozen Caveman Senator is that he is clearly and unambiguously not competent to hold the office of the presidency.

Biden’s abusive handlers and family would do well to reconsider this latest failing strategy, and re-implement Operation Hide the Geezer. Hide him all the way to July if you can, and then hope for a miracle in the fall.

That’s not an especially good strategy, but when you’re actively trying to force an impaired candidate into the White House, it’s the best one available.

That is all.

DNC Will Use the Coronavirus to Shut This Puppy Down on Wednesday

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

Why, in my day, we didn’t have things like schools and restaurants and food supply chains. – While “coronavirus” is a term that you and everyone you know has become intimately familiar with, to the two tired old Last Geezers Standing in the Democrat presidential field, it remains a mystery. In their spooky debate last night – which felt like a post-apocalyptic contest between two addled zombie hunters – Sleepy Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Joe referred to COVID-19 as “SARS”, while The Commie labled it “ebola.”

Biden also referred to the “H1N1” virus that killed more than 60,000 Americans on his own watch as Vice President as the “N1H1” – which showed how seriously he took it at the time – and called ebola “that thing that happened in Africa.” All in all, though, none of that and the other Biden gaffes on the night will be enough for Sanders, as the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator held things together just enough to make his eventual nomination all but a certainty at this point.

Here’s the way the liberal hacks at Politico put it:

News-wise, there were two important takeaways. The first is that Biden did nothing to raise any fresh doubts about his electability. He was coherent, in control of his arguments in a way that he isn’t always, and aggressive enough against Sanders to keep the Vermont senator, who is rightfully respected as an excellent debater, on defense frequently. Sanders’ best hope was some kind of asteroid-like event that caused Biden to buckle on stage. It didn’t happen.

Yes, friends and family, Bernie Sanders, a man who looks and sounds like a cartoon character voiced by Mel Blanc and whose leftist ideas would make Vladimir Lenin blush, is now being portrayed by corrupt Democrat media toadies as “an excellent debater” as a means of propping up Quid Pro Joe in the public’s collective mind. Basically, because Biden managed to remain standing and remembered where he was for two hours, he’s the “winner” according to the Democrat/media propaganda machine.

Interestingly, despite Biden’s prior insistence that he and The Commie be seated for this debate, the format was changed at the last minute in order to make it coronavirus-compliant. The two grumpy old men stood a podiums carefully spaced 6 feet apart so they wouldn’t breathe on each other, but they couldn’t resist greeting one another with an elbow bump that was eerily reminiscent of a scene from “Grumpy Old Men.”

Debate in the time of coronavirus: An elbow bump greeting for Biden and Sanders | News | WTAQ

Happy Birthday Jack Lemmon!

It was nice that the two could get together for one last on-stage game of political canasta before Biden wipes the floor with Sanders in tomorrow’s primaries in Florida, Arizona, Ohio and Illinois and the DNC cancels the remainder of the campaign and summarily declares Quid Pro Joe its winner. Because that’s what’s about to happen over the course of the next two days.

With governors in major population states like California, New York, Ohio and Illinois now ordering the shutdown of bars and restaurants, and the CDC issuing an advisory discouraging any gathering of more than 50 people, coronavirus is, like it or not, turning America into your basic police state and shutting down our entire economy for at least the coming few weeks. Make no mistake about it: The actions of those four governors will soon be emulated by the governors in other states as the herd mentality takes over. These are politicians after all, and none of them will want to become a media target for straying from the coronavirus stampede.

While discouraging public gatherings and encouraging people to remain shut in their homes are moves that make sense in terms of trying to contain the spread of the virus, we must also recognize that these moves will now put massive more stress on grocery stores and the nation’s food supply chains that are already finding it impossible to meet stampeding consumer demand. Restaurants provide 35-50% of the daily meals serves in this country, and limiting them to drive-thru only or delivery isn’t going to do the trick.

We will soon be seeing lines at fast-food drive-thru windows that look like the gas lines we witnessed during the oil shocks of the 1970s, and the first guy who runs out of gas – or the electric charge in his Tesla – while waiting for hours in a line will cause it to back up for miles. If you think the shelves at your local CostCo or Albertsons have been empty over the past week, just wait till you see what happens to them when everyone rushes to the store to stock up on the stuff they need to cook their hamburgers and fried chicken at home, like your mom used to do.

Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York suggested on Sunday that the President might want to “activate the army” to help in dealing with the impacts of the coronavirus. This prompted many, including myself, to joke about Cuomo’s apparent expectation that the military can just shoot or nuke the virus.

But the reality – which he did not detail for the media – is that Cuomo knows that the actions he and his fellow governors took over the weekend are very likely to cause major disruption in food supply chains, a consequence that would inevitably lead to social unrest. That’s why he wants to have the army available to him – he’s anticipating the potential need to declare martial law.

Thus, the coronavirus and the measures being taken by the state and federal governments to deal with it, are about to provide the DNC with all the justification it needs for doing what the old Clinton freak James Carville advocated four days ago: “Let’s shut this puppy down and let’s move on and worry about November. This thing is decided. There’s no reason to keep it going, not even a day longer,” he said.

Expect the puppy to be shut down come Wednesday.

Operation “Hide the Geezer” Goes High Tech, Disaster Predicably Ensues

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

Operation “Hide the Geezer” really isn’t working out well. Not well at all. – Quid Pro Joe Biden, the obviously impaired presumptive nominee of the Democrat Party, attempted to hold a virtual town hall on Friday, using some of that new-fangled high technology that he obviously believes is a lot of malarkey. Very predictably, things did not go well. Watch the clip below – I assure you there is nothing wrong with your speakers or headphones:

 

Here’s an accurate transcript, as nearly as I can tell:

Biden: mffglps I can bffflmo pclopid nesssstl Bernie S mbbbbfff gggglkbilpadoodle difficulties.

[End]

So, hey, it’s pretty much what he used to say when he held live town halls, right? Right.

But you’re no doubt thinking that things must have surely gotten better once Biden and his crack staff found a workaround to the sound problems. But you would be wrong. Things actually got really fun after Creepy Uncle Joe was provided with a fancy new I-Phone, a mysterious and strange modern piece of tech that frightens and confuses the Unfrozen Caveman Senator.

Here’s a photo of him:

Ok, just kidding. Watch this:

The man doesn’t even know when he would take office should he actually manage to win the election. Dear God, please save us from this imbecile.

On Thursday, Biden said in a speech that he and his staff were “re-imagining” how to run their campaign without all those big “crowds” that couldn’t fill half of a high school gymnasium being present. Let’s note that the people doing that “re-imagining” are the very same people who thought it would be a peachy idea to send a guy who hasn’t figured out how to operate an 8-track tape player or his BetaMax out to try to conduct this virtual town hall.

Note to Quid Pro Joe’s staff: Any day you send this fading, corrupt buffoon out to speak without a script to be read from a teleprompter is a day filled with opportunity for disaster.

Despite all the pratfalls, Biden will almost certainly become the Democrat nominee in July. He has just one real hurdle to get over at this point. That comes in the form of tomorrow night’s debate with The Commie, Bernie Sanders.

Make no mistake about it: This is a huge challenge for Biden.

After all, this is a man whose staff has now limited him to stump speeches lasting no more than 10 minutes, 15 at the outside. In all the prior Democrat debates, with half a dozen to a dozen candidates on-stage, Biden only had to maintain some level of coherence for 10-12 minutes. In this 2-hour debate, he is going to have to speak for around an hour, without prepared notes, with no teleprompter there to keep him on script.

Which of course explains why his handlers absolutely insisted that the candidates be seated for this debate instead of standing at podiums. The less physical stress for Quid Pro Joe, the better his chances of surviving the two hours without claiming to have been the guy who brought the 10 Commandments down from the mountain top, or to have known Dred Scott personally and marched with him in Selma.

Assuming none of that or something equally disastrous happens Sunday night, Biden will sweep Tuesday’s primaries in Illinois, Ohio, Arizona and Florida and become the nominee if he can remain breathing through July. At that point, all Americans can look forward to the prospect of Quid Pro Joe and President Donald Trump holding a series of debates in the fall.

Talk about must-see TV. Holy cow.

A Week Later, Bernie Sanders “Win” in California Remains in Jeopardy

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

You seriously could never make this stuff up. – When California ostensibly held its Republican and Democrat primaries last Tuesday, all the networks and the Associated Press called the race in Bernie Sanders’ favor pretty much as soon as the polls closed. After all, The Commie had a very large early lead, one that seemed to be insurmountable.

But this is California, the state where, in the 2018 general election, no fewer than 8 Republicans went to bed on Election Night believing they had won their congressional race against Democrat opponents. What they didn’t understand then – and what the networks and The Commie may have lost sight of this year – is that “votes” would continue to be mined by Democrats for weeks after election day, thanks to the election fraud-promoting laws enacted in recent years by California Democrats who control the state government.

In the weeks following the 2018 election those 8 Republicans looked on helplessly as each of their wins were reversed as Democrats “mined” hundreds of thousands of “votes” that had not been included in the Election Day results. It seemed as if the entire state of California had been turned into Broward County, Florida.

As you read this piece today, more than 3.5 million “votes” still remain to be “counted” in the California primary, roughly 2.3 million of which will likely be counted on the Democrat side, six full days after the election supposedly took place. Here is an excerpt from a Times of San Diego piece on the matter:

According to estimates published by county election registrars, as of Thursday night, there are 3.5 million ballots left to count. (The Secretary of State’s office showed a count of about 3.3 million, but that did not include the latest updated numbers from Los Angeles County.)

San Diego County accounted for 290,000 of those uncounted ballots on Thursday night, but 40,000 were subsequently counted on Friday, and more will be counted on Saturday.

That small mountain of unprocessed popular will comes courtesy of last minute voters — those who either put their ballots in the mail on Election Day itself, or who voted in person but exercised their California-given right to register or change their political party on the spot.

Ok, get it? California Democrats have enacted laws that are literally designed to delay the vote count, and every day the vote count is delayed is a day that is ripe for opportunity for more voter fraud committed by Democrat operatives who control the “counting” process all over the state.

The next paragraph of the piece lays out the most prime opportunity for these operatives to manipulate the outcomes of close elections:

They also include ballots that were ripped, bent, marred by typos, or that otherwise gave a voting machine a hard time and will thus require the careful study of a human election worker.

Ah, the “careful study of a human election worker.” That’s exactly how Lyndon Johnson “won” his first election to the U.S. Senate in 1948. It’s exactly the method the Democrats who control the “counting” in Broward and Palm Beach counties in Florida delay the vote counts in their counties for days in every election cycle in a blatant effort to manipulate the outcomes of close statewide elections. In 2000, they damn near succeeded in even stealing a presidential election.

With 2.3 million “uncounted votes” in the Democrat primary still outstanding, The Commie holds a seemingly significant lead of over 271,000 votes. But that amounts to just 12% of the “vote” that remains to be “counted.” As creative and focused as the Democrats have been on ensuring Sanders never becomes their party’s nominee, that does not really seem like too big a hill to climb.

Luckily for Sanders, though, the preponderance of the outstanding votes appear to be in Los Angeles County and south, heavily-Hispanic areas where The Commie fared well on election day. But as we have seen over the last several election cycles, anything is possible when it comes to Democrat Party-controlled vote “counting.”

That is all.

No Surprise Here: DNC/CNN Rig Debate Format for Quid Pro Joe

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

The old geezers get to sit now. – Catering to every whim of their chosen candidate, the DNC and CNN announced on Sunday that tired, obviously declining Quid Pro Joe Biden will get his wish for the next Democrat debate later this week. He and his fellow, much healthier septuagenarian, Bernie Sanders, will be seated at a table with the moderators.

The debate, which oddly takes place on Sunday night, will present a radically changed format from previous debates at which all the candidates stood at podiums for two hours. For the remaining “hey you kids, get off my lawn!” brigade of candidates, doing that became a test of endurance that Sanders was perfectly willing to continue but Biden was obviously anxious to end.

From a report by Politico on the matter:

Bernie Sanders wants to stand up at the next debate — and his campaign is accusing Joe Biden of wanting to sit down.

After a private call Friday with CNN, which is moderating the March 15 debate with the Democratic National Committee, Sanders’ team balked at a new proposed format for debate, saying it gives his opponent Biden too much of a break in their first one-on-one face-off. Biden’s camp denied that it was pressing for a sit-down debate.

“Why does Joe Biden not want to stand toe-to-toe with Sen. Sanders on the debate stage March 15 and have an opportunity to defend his record and articulate his vision for the future?” asked Jeff Weaver, Sanders’ senior adviser.

Biden’s campaign and the DNC said the format for the debate was decided by the party and CNN. The news network declined to comment and referred questions to the DNC.

“We will participate in whatever debate CNN chooses to stage: standing, sitting, at podiums, or in a town hall,” Biden’s deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield said. “The problem for the Sanders campaign is not the staging of the debate, but rather, the weakness of Sen. Sanders’ record and ideas.”

There’s no secret what’s happening here: The standing format had Biden visibly tiring towards the end of the last debate. During the last 40 minutes or so, he repeatedly lashed out at the moderators and fellow candidates, and struggled to form sentences. There is a reason why his standard campaign stump speech, during which he roams around a stage before a tiny audience, lasts no more than 15 minutes.

Also catering to Biden’s needs, the setting will be similar to one of his campaign events, with a stage surrounded by a Biden-like small audience. Even better for Biden, the format will include questions from the attendees, which in Democrat debates tend to consist mainly of sophomoric iterations of “how much of other people’s money are you planning to give to me and my family after you’re elected?” or “how many trillions of our grandchildren’s dollars are you willing to throw away on AOC’s climate change pipe dreams?”

Including audience questions helps to break up the normal flow of a debate, and allows Biden to avoid a lot of head-to-head exchanges of ideas with The Commie and just talk about all the mythical things he did during the “Obiden/Bama” administration, as he called it on Saturday.

Changing the qualification rules in order to exclude Tulsi Gabbard – the only remaining woman/minority candidate in the race – from this debate also works in Biden’s favor. Gabbard is no friend of the Party’s ruling class, and already effectively killed the candidacy of Kamala Harris in a debate last fall. Eliminating her helps to clear the minefield for Creepy Uncle Joe.

Thus, we see the DNC and its toadies at CNN taking no chances with their plan to literally carry the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator across the finish line to the party’s nomination. With primaries in the delegate-rich states of Florida, Illinois, Ohio and Arizona taking place just two days later, a big Biden breakdown on-stage in this debate could shift the race right back in The Commie’s favor. Having Quid Pro Joe comfortably seated at a table significantly reduces the prospects for disaster.

With polling data now trending strongly in his favor, Biden now has a clearly achievable path to being able to win the nomination on the first ballot in Milwaukee. Somewhere, President Donald Trump is celebrating.

That is all.
