The Biden Gaffe Machine Just Keeps Rolling Along

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

Is there anything Joe Biden didn’t do first? – I mean, to hear him tell it, anyway.

Seriously, Biden has been a creature of the DC Swamp since time immemorial, which means since 1973 for all you Millennials out there. Throughout all that time, he’s never been considered to be any sort of guy who has been on the cutting edge of societal evolution. He’s always been on the wrong side of literally every foreign policy issue, never out front on any budgetary matter that anyone can remember, and the truth is that he’s always been very slow to react to our nation’s shifting cultural currents.

But to hear ol’ Joe tell it, why, he’s the guy who wrote every important bill of the last 45 years, he’s the guy who was always behind the scenes telling his “good friend Barack” when he was doin’ stuff wrong, and he’s always been the first to be out-front on controversial, shifting societal norms.

So it was that, as he and his hyper-cautious handlers toured yet another fair in Iowa (seriously, does Iowa have a state fair or festival every weekend of the year?) Biden grabbed a young female college student who had had the temerity to actually ask him a question that the Democrat activists in the news media would never dream of asking him and shouted “I was the first to come out for marriage!”, which in Biden-speak meant he believes he was literally the first DC Swamp creature to voice his approval of gay marriage.

Which probably isn’t true, given that, after leaving the senate in 2008, he and his “good friend Barack” ran on a platform that was firmly opposed to gay marriage. As recently as just a few months ago, Biden was still in the habit of telling off-color gay jokes at public events:

 

A quick Google search reveals that the first recorded instance of Joe Biden voicing approval for gay marriage came in 2012, when, as is his habit, he just blurted out a position contrary to Obama’s during an interview, an act for which it was later revealed he was called on the carpet by the then-President.

By 2012, dozens of elected Democrats and even a few Republicans had already voiced their strong approval for gay marriage, which means that once again Biden was exaggerating the cutting edginess of his political career. But hey, it’s just good ol’ Joe, so what does it matter?

Biden, in his confrontation with the female college student, also revealed he is waaaaayyyyyy behind the times when it comes to his party’s gender-identity politics. Prior to his grabbing the young lady by the arm and pulling her in to shout at her, the two had this exchange:

“How many genders are there?” the girl asked.

“There are at least three,” Good ol’ Joe responded.

“What are they?” she asked.

Biden becoming visibly angry, responded: “Don’t play games with me, kid.”

So, as we see there, Biden is up to three genders now, although he obviously has no idea what the third one might be, which may be the first time he’s ever agreed with about 95% of all Americans.

But according to the social justice warrior crowd, the number of genders that exist among the human race are simply a matter of however many any aggrieved individual wants there to be. There might be three, there might be 30, there might be 300, depending upon how some random person feels about it.

Maybe that’s what Biden meant when he scolded the girl not to play games with him. There are only three genders now because that’s how he was feeling about it at that particular time. Next Tuesday, on the other hand, he might well feel like there are 624 separate and distinct human genders, who knows?

When you think about it, this how-am-I-feeling-today-based concept of what reality happens to be is a perfect crutch for Biden to adopt. After all, if anything you say, any opinion you express is real because that’s how you happen to be feeling, then all of Biden’s myriad gaffes suddenly disappear into the ether. In the future he can just say “Hey, I wanted to sniff that guy’s wife’s neck because I was feeling like doing that right then – don’t you dare judge me!” or something like that, and all the CNN and MSNBC and New York Times reporters would all nod their heads and move onto another pre-approved softball question.

This is Joe Biden, folks. This is the unfrozen caveman politician the Democrat Party wants to put in the White House next year. Isn’t life grand?

That is all.

America Needs Mental Care

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

Thanks for that, Joe. We know you’re so darn sincere. – Elderly Democrat presidential front-runner Joe Biden, speaking at a high-dollar fundraiser in San Diego on Sunday, comforted the mourning people of El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio by offering his heartfelt sympathies over the “tragic events in Houston today and also in Michigan the day before.” You just seriously could never make these people up, folks.

That Dayton shooter? He was an Elizabeth Warren fan. – So he said himself on his Twitter profile, which was dug up by law enforcement officials on Sunday. A registered Democrat, fan of Fauxcahontas. The shooter in El Paso, who developed an irrational hatred for Hispanics during the Obama Administration for whatever reasons – most likely having to do with his upbringing and nothing at all to do with politics – left behind a manifesto advocating for all manner of pet leftist Democrat causes and a profile at MyLife.com that showed he was a Democrat before some Democrats got into it and altered it.

Yet, our fake news media and every Democrat in America wants you to believe that both incidents are the fault of President Donald Trump. This is a very sick attempt at brainwashing, folks, so nothing really new since that’s what our fake news media attempts to do to us every day of the week.

The brainwashing efforts are especially sick, however, when they come in the wake of mass shootings in which 30 people were brutally murdered by a couple of deranged lunatics.

How sick are these people? CNN’s fake news host Jake Tapper dug disgraced, fired ex-FBI Agent Andrew McCabe up to claim it’s all Trump’s fault on his despicable Sunday program. Irish Bob O’Rourke and failed South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Spartacus Booker were all over the Sunday morning shows calling the President a racist and a white supremacist, blaming him for both incidents without evidence. And fake news hosts like Tapper and Chris Wallace and George Stephanopoulous and Chuck Todd lapped it all up and egged the politicians on, all in craven efforts to drive up ratings.

Blaming President Trump, Elizabeth Warren or any current politician for a 50-year phenomenon in our society that began in the late 1960s is a despicable, depraved political tactic that should be condemned by any thinking American. Before the late 1960s – coinciding with the advent of the effort to de-institutionalize dangerous mental health patients – our country had experienced exactly two mass shooting events in the 20th century: The Camden shootings in 1949, and of course the University of Texas Tower shooter in 1966. We equaled that in about 14 hours on Saturday, and would have surpassed it on Sunday had law enforcement not thwarted a planned copycat effort in Florida.

That de-institutionalizing of severe mental patients culminated in a 1975 Supreme Court decision in a case brought by the leftist ACLU, and the frequency of these events, which had already become a trend, has accelerated ever since. Also not coincidentally, the nation’s homeless population has blossomed during that same period of time.

Many of those mental health institutions were awful, abusive places and definitely needed to be reformed and better-regulated. Instead, the ACLU decision resulted in simply shutting them down and pouring patients, many of whom were dangers to themselves and society, out onto the streets. Many had no support system outside of the institutions, no place to go, and were left to simply fend for themselves. The process of treating new patients inevitably devolved into a process of prescribing drugs to try to control their behaviors and little else.

Both of these most-recent shooters – like so many before them – were known by local school and law enforcement officials and their friends and families to be highly-troubled individuals. They needed real mental care, and did not get it. We will almost without any doubt at all find out that instead they were consuming several different prescription drugs as panaceas to “correct” their behaviors. We will also no doubt find out they were both heavily into violent video games, and come from dysfunctional families.

This is all so clear, and all so utterly, depressingly predictable. And yet, all we are going to be allowed by our fake news media, the Democrats and the online PC culture to talk about is beefing up background checks at gun shows and confiscating ill-defined “assault weapons” from law-abiding citizens.

As if on cue, even the President of the United States, Donald Trump, has decided to try to quell the despicable effort by the political left to blame him for these shootings by playing that same game:

Depressing.

The President will deliver a speech from the White House on the matter at 10:00 ET today.

I have no problem with beefing up background checks, but they would have done nothing to prevent these two most recent tragedies or any of the others that came before them, because the inanimate objects that play roles in these acts are not the problem.

But that’s what we are left with because no one in our fake news media or our popular culture wants to deal with the real issue at hand. Our entire country is desperately in need of focused mental care.

Take care of yourselves and your loved ones, because your government damn sure isn’t going to do it for you.

That is all.

Dem Debate, Night 2: A Status Quo-Preserving Farce

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

My goodness, feel free to shoot me if I ever do that again. – I’m afraid I made the horrific decision to actually watch the Wednesday night Democrat debate live, and I hardly got a minute of sleep as a result. What a horror show that party is.

You put any one of these circus clowns in the White House and this country as we have known it is over. Over and done. Overall, this has to be the dumbest bunch ever to take a debate stage together.

I never thought I’d witness anyone more useless than New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio, but Washington Governor Jay Inslee gave him a run last night, and Colorado Senator Michael Bennet wasn’t far behind. Every time Inslee started talking about how wonderful he has been on “climate change,” I wanted to find a razor, fill the bathtub and slit my wrists.  Bennet, meanwhile, honestly sounded like he’d had one too many toddies before going on stage – I’ve never seen him speak in such a mush-mouthed way.

DeBlasio?  Why is he there again? This is a guy who is forcing his police officers to grin and bear it as they are assaulted by gangs of thugs, and he wants us to make him Commander-in-Chief? Go away, Tall Stupid Man.

As was the case on Tuesday night, the worst people in the room were the Democrat activists pretending to be moderators provided by CNN. Here is how these tools of the DNC allocated speaking time last night:

Biden: 21:01

Harris: 17:43

Booker: 12:59

Gillibrand: 11:18

Inslee: 10:46

Gabbard: 10:32

Bennet: 10:26

Castro: 10:25

DeBlasio: 9:41

Yang: 8:38

So, other than Harris and Booker, clear favorites of the DNC/Media complex, no one in the rest of the field got more than half the speaking time that Biden received. Yang – who the DNC hates with a passion and wants out of the race – got 40% of Biden’s time, which is three MORE minutes than he was allocated in the June debate.

That’s mostly the fault of the moderators, who didn’t pose a question to anyone other than Biden or Harris until the “debate” was half an hour old, but it was also due to a clever tactic employed by Harris. You can say what you want about Harris – and there are so, so many things to be said about her – but she is clever.

She obviously watched the first night and figured out how the moderators were doing things.  Anytime one candidate made a derogatory remark about or challenged another candidate, they then gave 30 seconds to the other candidate to respond.

Now, Creepy Uncle Joe is about 3 more facial surgeries away from becoming an actual Roman bust and extremely prone to gaffes, and Harris knows that camera and speaking time is his kryptonite. So, she spent most of her own time targeting Biden, which generally resulted in Biden stuttering and stammering in half-sentences and often in half-words and finally targeting her back, resulting in even more speaking time of her own.

She wasted most of that time, appearing nervous and offering nonsensical and evasive answers about her own record, but the tactic of exposing Creepy Uncle Joe was very smart and effective.

As a result, Biden ends up being one of the clear losers in this debate. His poll numbers will tank down into the low 20s in the next round polls to be released over the next 10 days or so. But he will go into hiding and those numbers will again recover back up maybe into the 30s as deranged Democrat voters forget who he really is and what he really looks and sounds like these days. Then the next debate will come around, and we’ll repeat the whole process again.

Despite all her air time, Harris is a clear loser because she will just tread water after this debate. She utterly wasted her breakthrough moment on busing with Biden from the first debate, and she can’t afford to just tread water anymore. Loser, loser, looooser.

Other clear losers include DeBlasio, Kirsten Gillibrand, Inslee and Bennet, all of whom should end their 0%-polling campaigns today. Andrew Yang was also a loser after wasting his air time by reciting scripted answers that often made no sense. He had the potential of being a real factor in this race, and has completely thrown it away by taking his “expert” advisors’ advice and becoming just another nervous talking points parrot. Too bad, so sad.

I’ve seen a couple of talking heads last night and this morning list Cory Spartacus Booker as a winner, but I don’t see it. Yes, he scored some debating points on Biden that will impress some Democrat voters, but optically he is a disaster. He apparently can’t help it, but Booker always appears to be right on the verge of going into some Manson-style Helter Skelter rage whenever he speaks. Plus, he’s gotten into the habit of waving his arms around crazily, as if he’s imitating Irish Bob O’Rourke. Debating points are nice, but optics are what really matter in these televised debates, and Booker’s optics are not good.

There were a couple of candidates who did themselves some good last night, and thus can be classified as winners. They are former San Antonio Mayor/Obama HUD Secretary Julian Castro and Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard.

Castro wins on demeanor – he was the calmest and most articulate person on the stage all night long. His ideas on immigration and other topics are mostly crazy, but he offers them with a quiet dignity that really allows him to stand out among his goofy, arm-waving, shouting and whining peers. Good optics there.

Gabbard also was a winner on the optics front – which, admit it, is pretty easy for her to do – but she was also able to score some direct hits on both Harris and Biden as the debate wore on. She was also the most-searched candidate on Google in all 50 states during the debate, repeating her performance in that category from the debates held in late June.

None of that is likely to do her much good, though, as the DNC and its media toadies hate her and will almost certainly find a way to exclude her from future debates, just as they are doing with Yang. Democrat voters seem to be interested in Gabbard and want to know who she is, but when they find out that she actually makes good sense on some issues, they run away in fear of coming in touch with reality. So she might as well just give it up at this point.

Taken together, this week’s two nights of debates will end up preserving the status quo, and enable Biden to remain in the lead for another month. In the meantime, the Commie and Fauxcahontas will keep jockeying for 2nd place position, Harris will continue to flounder, Mayor Pete will continue his slow fade into 0%-Black-Support oblivion, and Booker will keep on clinging to false hopes of catching lightning-in-a-bottle.

Everyone else might as well drop out now, but you can be sure most of them won’t do that. Those vanity campaigns are hard to give up.

That is all.

Democrat Debates, Round 2 Feature Rigged Match-ups of Front-Runners

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

I demand to be a billionaire! um, will that work too, Rashida? – Michigan Bigot Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib told Fake, er, Jake Tapper yesterday that the economy is not growing because of the policies of President Donald Trump, but because…wait for it…THE PEOPLE DEMANDED IT. I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Here’s a link to the video:

Tlaib Flounders While Trying to Explain Why Michigan Shouldn’t Reelect Trump Given Their Economy Recovery

No, Rashida, that does not make sense. Not at all. Go away.

Hooboy. Here we go again. – The second round of Democrat “debates” take place tonight and tomorrow night in Detroit, to be televised on the Democrat activist channel CNN. So, it’ll be a great night to binge “Fixer Upper” or catch up on all those episodes of “Last Man Standing” you’ve missed or maybe watch a baseball game, which is my plan.

I’m not sure which of CNN’s on-air hacks will serve as “moderators”, but does it really matter? Whichever Democrat activist hacks it turns out to be will assuredly pose only the most painless of softball questions to the various circus clowns on stage, and none of the clowns will make any effort to actually answer the question posed anyway. It would be a far more honest endeavor if CNN just gave each of circus clowns 10 minutes or so to recite their standard talking points, because that’s what they’re all going to do.

The only real question over the next two evenings is whether any of the also-rans can recite their talking points in a manner that might allow them to have a break-out moment, like Kamala Harris had during her first debate at the expense of Creepy Uncle Joe. Harris got a big initial boost from that attack – which turned out to have been mostly false, but hey, she’s a Democrat, so that’s ok – temporarily moving her into second place in a few national polls, as Biden’s own poll ratings cratered.

But in the weeks that have followed that event, Biden has slowly regained his poll standing by largely staying out of the public spotlight (the old Hillary Clinton strategy) while Harris, a terrible campaigner, has utterly failed to capitalize on her opportunity and has fallen back into a weak fourth place.

This is where the Democrat debate process – with just a handful of debates spaced a month apart – plays into Biden’s creepy hands. Biden’s a horrible debater in general, and putting his elderly, highly-plasticized face in the national spotlight is never going to be a good thing for him. So, he is going to need weeks to recover from every one of these debate events, and the DNC process will give that to him. The fact that he’s been able to recover from his first debate fiasco is a firm testament to the laughable weakness of the rest of the Democrat field of clowns.

The field enters this week’s debates in almost the same polling positions they occupied entering the first debates, with two notable exceptions. First, The Commie has cratered over the past two weeks, as his poll numbers have fallen from around 20% to the low teens in the most recent round of polls. Fauxcahontas has now firmly assumed second place, trailing Creepy Uncle Joe by 12-14 points.

Second, Irish Bob O’Rourke, who entered the first debates polling around 4-5%, just behind Mayor Pete, has now cratered so badly that he trails Andrew Yang, one of the three actually interesting candidates in the Democrat field. Irish Bob finds himself on-stage tonight with Fauxcahontas, The Commie, Mayor Pete, the mercurial Marianne Williamson, and an assortment of 0-1%-polling irrelevancies who should have already abandoned their vanity campaigns. Tonight is basically Irish Bob’s last stand – he either finds a way to make himself relevant to the process again, or what little ongoing funding he still has will dry up like a West Texas stock tank in a drought.

As I pointed out last time, the Democrats never leave anything to chance, so both night’s panels have been rigged as battles between front-runners who have been trading polling support with each other in the hopes of improving TV ratings. Tonight’s feature match is between The Commie and Fauxcahontas, and you can bet the CNN “moderators” have been instructed to focus most of their questioning on those two.

Wednesday night’s feature match will be between Creepy Uncle Joe and Harris, obviously. No one else on tomorrow night’s stage is polling more than 3%. Aside from the feature bout, the big question will be whether or not Yang can get more than the 3 minutes of air time he got from the MSNBC goons during his first debate and potentially have a breakout moment.

Readers may remember that I predicted back in March that Yang would eventually become one of the “rising stars” of this field, but backed off of that later after Yang had had several awful TV appearances during which he did nothing but robotically recite talking points. Over the last month, though, Yang has gotten out of that noose provided by his “expert” advisors, and begun speaking more extemporaneously. Not surprisingly, we’ve seen his polling numbers begin to creep up as a result.

If he can get fair treatment from CNN’s fake “moderators” – and that’s a very big “if” since the people at the DNC are scared to death of an outsider like Yang – he could finally have the breakout moment he needs to boost his campaign on Wednesday.

Tulsi Gabbard, the only other actual interesting person in the Democrat field besides Yang and Williamson, is also on the Wednesday stage. She also was given very little opportunity to speak by the MSNBC goons, and we’ll just have to wait and see if she is given any more chance on CNN. Given that the folks at the DNC hate her as much as they hate Yang, it’s highly doubtful.

Otherwise, we just have to hope for as much air time as possible for Williamson, just because she’s so damn entertaining.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Democrats Gone Wild!

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Editor’s Note: The Campaign Update will be silent from July 11 through July 23 because Dave needs some down time.]

It’s hard to imagine how the week just past could have gone any worse for America’s Democrat Party, i.e., the Party of Antifa, the Party of AOC, the Party of Socialism, the Party of open borders, the Party of Creepy Uncle Joe and The Commie and Fauxcahontas and rioting and flag-burning and lying fake news media and protesting celebrations of America’s Independence Day.

Seriously, when the three most lasting images of the week are of Antifa rioters assaulting dozens of innocent Americans in Portland and Washington, DC, leftist protesters burning the American flag on July 4, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lying relentlessly about things she did not actually see or do on a trip to the U.S./Mexico border, your party is having a week to forget.

The week began horribly for the Dems, as President Donald Trump made history by becoming the first U.S. president to walk across the DMZ into North Korea. Despite the best efforts of the media to suppress them, the images of that historic moment for peace went viral all over social media for the next several days. All grumpy Democrats could do was whine about the meeting somehow legitimizing the Crazy Little Fat Guy, but in reality, all that did in the public’s mind was make the Dems sound like a bunch of, well, grumps.

The early week festivities continued with Irish Bob O’Rourke, so desperate over his failure to attract votes in the United States, going across the border into Mexico to campaign instead. There, Mexican citizens no doubt made much fun of the freakish, arm-waving yankee.

Oh, but it just got better on the border, folks, much better – if you aren’t a Democrat, that is. Cory Spartacus Booker, seeing Irish Bob’s stunt as a challenge, decided it would be a great thing for him to go down to the border and break all sorts of U.S. laws by personally escorting illegal aliens into the United States. While Spartacus was no doubt duly impressed with his own self, few actual Americans noticed, and fewer still were similarly impressed.

Not to be outdone, AOC, partly participating in a tour of a detention facility in Clint, Texas with 13 fellow Democrat demagogues, caused an uproar, which is her only true core competency. She began screaming at U.S. Customs and Border Patrol personnel as soon as she entered the facility, then refused to participate in the tour, choosing instead to park herself in a holding area as the rest of the group went through the building. She then posted a series of abject lies on her Twitter feed, pretending to have actually toured the facility. Her supporters went nuts – which is also the only thing they’re any good at doing – and it took two days for the truth to actually filter out, by which time the actress AOC had moved on to her next performance.

AOC’s week ended with San Fran Nan throwing her under the bus in a fawining, softball interview with the terminally smarmy Maureen Dowd in the New York Times.

Oof.

Creepy Uncle Joe Biden spent the entire week clarifying, apologizing, and lashing out at his tormentors as he watched his standing in the various polls fade, as it inevitably must. By the end of the week, two separate polls had his once-grand 20+ point lead over the field sitting at just 2% ahead of the opportunistic Kamala Harris. Biden’s faithful army of fake media defenders were left only to brag about his “huge” fundraising haul of $21 million for the second quarter of the year, always forgetting to point out that President Trump raised $24 million in the first 24 hours after he formally announced his candidacy.

Ouch.

Then came July 4, and the wonderful celebration of America’s Independence planned and staged by your President, Donald J. Trump. The Dems and their media hacks had spent the entire week slamming the entire thing as just another Trump campaign event, but any American who actually watched the festivities and failed to be inspired by it is most likely, well, a Democrat. Everyone else thought it was wonderful.

While ordinary Americans were celebrating their wonderful nation, Democrats all across the country were burning flags and assaulting other Americans. Meanwhile, their presidential candidates, all of whom had spent the week slamming the President for presumably “politicizing” Independence Day, spent July 4th at campaign events where they slammed the President and politicized Independence Day.

You seriously can’t make this stuff up, folks.

There was a raft of great news for America and Americans this week, and great news for America and Americans was, as always, terrible news for the Democrat Party. The stock market reached new all-time highs during the week for about the 65,000th time in the Trump presidency, throwing Morning Joe and the editorial board at the New York Times into fits of depression.

Friday’s jobs report came in at a whopping 224,000, “shocking” all the “experts” who had all agreed it would only amount to about 165,000. All of this means that, despite the best efforts of Democrats and the fake news media to talk it down, the Trump economy just keeps rolling along, and the recession Democrats have been praying for remains nowhere in sight.

All the Dems in and out of the media got even more depressed Saturday night when the Washington Post and ABC were forced to reveal that the President’s rating in their fake poll had reached an all-time high.

By the end of the week, Democrats and their media toadies were so bereft of anything positive that they were left to panic about the rumor that the President may be considering replacing National Security Advisor John Bolton – a war hawk who these same Dems and media toadies have spent the last 15 years mercilessly vilifying – with someone who would favor getting the U.S. military out of the 18-year war in Afghanistan and Barack Obama’s misadventure in Syria.

Grumps, liars, extremists, and black-clad masked brutes: That is what the Democrat Party has become in 2019.

It’s not a good look, folks.

That is all.

Does Anyone Care Enough About Joe Biden to Stage an Intervention?

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

We should not be at all surprised if, at some point between now and September, we see our nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, Joe Biden, withdraw from race to become the Democrat Party’s 2020 presidential nominee due to some unspecified “health” reasons. Why? Watch this clip from an interview with Chris Cuomo:

This guy is simply not capable of enduring the long, grueling, race he faces. He proved in the first debate last week that he is unable to think quickly enough on his feet to adequately respond to an attack from just one of his 24 rivals for the nomination. That single attack has over the past week shaved 8-10 points off of his support level in the various polls of the race, cutting his previous 18-point lead down by doubt digits.

What’s going to happen in the next debate when, emboldened by the results produced by Kamala Harris’s 60 seconds as the attack dog, Fauxcahontas and Spartacus maybe even Julian Castro decide to join in the fun? What’s going to happen when half a dozen opponents team up to spend the full two hours treating this fumbling, bumbling gaffe machine to a death by a thousand cuts?

The Unfrozen Caveman Senator can’t even recall basic facts of history or cobble together complex thoughts required to respond to multiple topics at the same time. He says in that snippet that Russian aggression “would never have happened” on his and Barack Hussein Obama’s watch. He appears to have forgotten that Russia engaged in all manner of aggressive acts on their watch, and did so without consequence.

He apparently doesn’t remember Russia’s aggression against the Ukraine on his watch. He can’t recall Russia’s annexation of Crimea that took place on his watch. He appears to have forgotten about Russia’s entrance into Syria on his and Obama’s watch. He can’t seem to recall Russia’s constant prodding and provoking of NATO across Europe on his watch. He is in obvious denial that Russia’s alleged “attack” on our 2016 elections took place on his and Obama’s watch, and Obama chose to do nothing about it.

And even if he did recall those things, you get the clear feeling from watching that video that he would be utterly incapable of forming any sort of coherent set of thoughts about them if put on the spot to do so on live, national television.

Biden is 76 years old, soon to be 77, but he looks and sounds much older than that. His speech is often slurred; he frequently must pause in the middle of sentences to search for words; the scars from his many plastic surgeries are becoming increasingly prominent, defying the ability of makeup artists to cover them. He is clearly, unambiguously a man in the decline of his life.

Like many who find themselves such decline, he’s begun lashing out. A day after the interview clipped above, he was threatening to dig up dirt on his opponents and use it against them, saying “I mean, I get all this information about other people’s pasts, and what they’ve done and not done. And you know, I’m just not going to go there. If we keep doing that — I mean, we should be debating what we do from here.”

It has been clear for some time now that he will not be the party’s nominee in 2020. He is simply not up to that task, and frankly never was. He has always been a buffoon, a mean and frankly bigoted clown prone to embarrassing himself and those around him at he drop of a hat. He’s a guy who has never had any respect for people’s personal space – which is the nicest thing that can be said about his behavior – a guy with a long, documented history of telling racist, sexist and homophobic jokes in public events. You can’t put this guy in charge of anything really important and even hope for a positive outcome.

So why stay in? Perhaps the DNC has some reason for wanting it’s party’s creepy uncle to be out front serving as an attack dog on President Trump, but the utility of even that role drops every time a video like this one gets into the public domain, and Biden’s poll numbers drop another five points.

At this point, though, the people around Biden and those who actually care about him and his well-being need to be seriously thinking about finding some semi-dignified way for him to end his 46-year career in national public life. Because it is getting close to ending, one way or another.

He has three options here:

One is to go out the Jeb! Bush way, which is to just keep struggling on, getting embarrassed in debate after debate, playing out the string until next March or so, when the money finally runs completely out and a string of embarrassing primary and caucus defeats have come and gone;

The second is to go out in utter humiliation, after some giant breakdown takes place on live TV which makes it impossible for him to even continue struggling on;

The third is to face reality, to recognize the harsh fact that he is just not destined to be our nation’s president and never was, and to find some dignified reason for leaving the race. Perhaps get a friendly doctor to discover some previously hidden heart defect or other condition that precludes this man from going on with such a stressful endeavor.

That third, more dignified option only exists if there actually are people around the former Vice President who really do care about him. It’s fair to wonder if such people really do exist, because if they do, you have to question why they’ve allowed him to get to this point without having already staged an intervention.

If you’re out there, there’s no time like the present, folks.

That is all.

Brace Yourselves, Because this Democrat Clown Show has Just Begun

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

Creepy Joe crashing, Mayor Pete plummeting, the Incredible Shrinking Beto, and more.:  The fallout in the various polls from last week’s Democrat debates has been fast, fierce and entirely predictable. The winners and losers of those debates were obvious, at least in terms of how the demented Democrat voter base would react. As usual, the fake news media and their “experts” and “analysts” had little clue about any of that.

Take Mayor Pete Buttigieg as a great example. All the “expert” talking heads at CNN and MSNBC and Fox ooohed and ahhhed about his simple admission that “I couldn’t get it done” when asked why he’s been unable to do a single damn thing to ease the seething racial tensions in South Bend during his seven long years as Mayor. All the smart people smiled and declared the fake news media’s latest Democrat date as one of the “clear winners” of the second night’s debate. The same pundits and “experts” all marveled again on Friday as Mayor Pete announced that his campaign raised about $24 million during the second quarter of the year, apparently forgetting that President Donald Trump raised that amount in the first 24 hours of his campaign.

We have now had four new polls come out in the wake of the debates (The Hill/HarrisX, Politico/Morning Consult, CNN and Quinnipiac), and Mayor Pete has lost ground from his prior 7% support level in each and every one of them. He’s at a pitiful 4% in the most current poll, from Quinnipiac, and hilariously receives … wait for it … ZERO percent support from Black voters.

Ouch.

Then there’s the Incredible Shrinking Beto, the fake news media’s former fave Democrat date, Irish Bob O’Rourke. Irish Bob was already sucking wind going into the debates, sitting at an average of about 4% support in the various polls. In the four polls released this week, he comes in at 4, 3, 2, and 1. The man is headed to 0 with a bullet.

The goofy and insufferable ex-Texas congressman compounded his horrific debate performance by going to Juarez, Mexico (hey, if you can’t attract support in America, try another country!) the next day and announcing that all these illegal aliens from central America have no choice but to get paid by Soros operatives to travel to the U.S. because of … wait for it … CLIMATE CHANGE. Because of course that’s what he said. Turns out not even most incredibly gullible Democrat voters who love to be lied to are buying into that particular whopper.

I’ve been telling y’all that the once-impressive polling lead held by America’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator would be gone by October. Well, after his wooden, confused and feeble debate performance, that timetable has sped up considerably. Unless some unforeseen sequence of events intervenes, Creepy Uncle Joe will be lucky to lead in any of these polls, real or fake, come late August. In the two most-current of those four polls, CNN and Quinnipiac, his support level that hovered in the mid-40s just two months ago is now down to 22%.

Indeed, after his terrible exchange with Kamala Harris during the debate, Biden finds himself virtually tied with the opportunistic California Senator in Quinnipiac, leading her by just 22% – 20%.  Yikes.

What about Bernie Sanders, you ask? Well, The Commie appears to be on the same path as Irish Bob, albeit with still-higher numbers. In the four polls in question, his numbers have come in at 19, 15, 14, and 13. The old Bolshevik apparently thought it would be a great idea to not prepare for this first debate, and just parrot the same answers he’d given during his debates with the Fainting Felon four years ago. Amazingly, Democrat voters seem to be growing weary of his tiresome Marxist messaging, something no one could have ever possibly predicted, including yours truly.  Go figure.

I also seem to have missed on my prediction that Fauxcahontas would get a boost from being seated at the kiddie table in the first debate with a bunch of people who all were polling at 4% or less. Her numbers are still hovering around 12%, which is right where her average was before the debate took place. I have long suspected that Lieawatha is going to have the same problem experienced by the Coughing Crook, i.e., that the more public exposure she gets, the less the public is going to like her. That dynamic could be kicking in here.

Looking around, it does not appear that any of the myriad other candidates in the race got any sort of real bounce out of the debates. The fake news media has now figured out that Julian Castro is the only actual, real Hispanic candidate and is now doing its best to give him a boost with gobs of free air time, but that is not resulting thus far in any noticeable movement in his numbers. Conversely, the media is still doing everything it can to ignore the only actual interesting people in the race – Tulsi Gabbard, Andrew Yang and Marianne Williamson – no doubt adhering to their marching orders from the DNC, which hates them all and wants them out of the race as soon as possible.

The Democrat Party, the party of “diversity,” cannot tolerate anything resembling real diversity of thought in its presidential race, after all.

At the end of the day, the control being exerted by the DNC, in concert with its toadies in the media, is why we see this race rapidly boiling down to what will become a long, tough slog involving Creepy Uncle Joe, The Commie, Kamala, and Fauxcahontas, with Mayor Pete and Cory Booker continuing to hang around yapping at everyone’s heels so long as their money holds out.

If you think this clown show you’ve witnessed thus far is unimpressive, well, you are not alone. You can bet that the Pantsuit Princess is sitting up in Chappaqua, grinning her evil grin as she sips her third chardonnay of the morning, day-dreaming about how she will waltz into next year’s hung convention and present herself as the Party’s savior yet again.

Stranger things have happened, and stranger things will happen again before this is all over.

That is all.

Kamala Harris Became a Political Powerhouse in Debate #2

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

Kamala Harris became a serious contender for the Democrat nomination last night. The Willie Brown paramour from California won the debate by landing a massive body blow on front-runner Joe Biden, putting her star on the rise in the race and accelerating Biden’s inevitable fall.

Watch this clip – it is devastating for Biden:

“It’s a mis-charicteration (sic)” are the first words out of our nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator’s mouth. He looks like one of the old Democrat segregationists he “got stuff done” with back in the 1970s, an age that most Democrat voters cannot even remotely relate to. He sounds old, he sounds programmed, everything he talks about is stuff that happened damn near half a century ago.

And then, he is so shaky, so unsure of himself, so out of canned talking points, that he becomes the first person in the history of presidential debates to …wait for it … cut himself off.

That boy done. And Kamala is off to the races. That clip getting played constantly on all the cable channels and all the social media platforms will add 5 points to her polling support in a week, maybe more.

The “Look at Me ‘Cuz I’m So Weird” award goes without any question at all to goofball author Marianne Williamson, who, when asked what her first priority upon assuming the presidency would be, actually said this:

“My first call is to the prime minister of New Zealand, who said that her goal is to make New Zealand the place where it’s the best place in the world for a child to grow up,” said Williamson. “I would tell her, ’Girlfriend, you are so wrong!”

Williamson is so overwhelmingly weird that even the weirdos at the Huffington Post went off on her performance this morning. That’s weird.

Her closing statement capped off a night of weirdness, probably capping off her vanity project campaign for good, as the DNC will now instruct their media toadies to keep her off the air and out of future debates:

Honestly, I can’t tell if she was threatening to defeat the President in next year’s general election or propositioning him. All conservatives should immediately contribute money to her campaign to ensure she is able to stay in this race, just as a practical joke.

The embarrassing MSNBC/NBC moderators did their best to ignore Williamson, allowing her less than 5 minutes of time to air her her grievances against New Zealand and praise her spirit guides, but if you’re Andrew Yang, you’re thinking “damn, sure wish I’d have gotten that extra two minutes!” this morning. Yang, the only actual semi-interesting person on that stage last night, the guy who campaigns on his claim to have a million ideas, was only given 2:58 to express them by the DNC/fake media cabal desperately hoping to kill him off before he can catch any fire in the race.

By comparison, Biden got 13:19 to talk about all the great stuff he did during the Nixon Administration, Harris got 12:16, Mayor Pete was awarded 11:21 for being the bestest hall monitor in the field, and the old Commie got 10:58 to spout all of his Stalinist nostrums.

Yang did get the consolation prize by winning the Drudge insta-poll following the debate. Yang pulled in over 28% of the vote in that measure, probably because his paltry time speaking ended up irritating fewer Americans than everyone else. Hilariously, Williamson actually came in third in that poll, pulling over 12% support, while Kamala Harris was second at 17%.

Who had the worst night? Other than Biden, you’d have to point to John Hickenlooper, Kirsten Gillibrand, Michael Bennett and Eric Swalwell, all of whom were the same non-factors in the debate that they’ve been thus far in the campaign. You can just stick a fork in all of ’em.

The Commie was the Commie, sounding and looking exactly as he sounded and looked in the 2016 race with the Pantsuit Princess. Being the only outright Commie in that race, he was able to give the Fainting Felon a race for her money. His problem this time, though, is that there are a ton of other outright commies in the race, and they’re really cutting into his support base.

Sanders spent his time pounding on every boogeyman imaginable, as Commies always do: The Medical industry, drug makers, corporate bigwigs in general, ICE, the Border Patrol, President Trump, Climate Change, conservative judges, senate Republicans – all of those handy boogeymen and more enjoyed their time in last night’s Bolshevik spotlight. He’s a tiresome old hack trading on nothing but fear and empty promises, which of course is why depraved Democrat voters love him.

Last night didn’t harm him, but it didn’t do him any good, either. Expect him to fall in the polls over the next couple of weeks, and expect both Fauxcahontas and Harris to pass him.

Hey, what about Mayor Pete? Last night was set up by the DNC and NBC to be his breakout moment, that jumpstart that would move his campaign into the next gear. He did fine in the debate by all accounts, but none of the media coverage is focused on him this morning.

And Buttigieg’s biggest problem comes in the only measure that really matters in these debates: Optics. Standing there on that stage next to the much, much taller Unfrozen Caveman Senator, Mayor Pete just looked like a high school sophomore trying to debate the school principal. After his awful weekend back in South Bend, Buttigieg needed to have a moment last night in which he showed real authority and empathy, especially for African Americans, in order to break out of that Optics trap.

He didn’t do that. Thus, his campaign, which had already stagnated in the 6-7% support level in the various polls, will continue to stagnate. You may even see his level of support begin to slowly drop, as frustrated potential supporters turn their heads to Kamala and Fauxcahontas.

So, here are the winners and losers from the Second Debate:

Winners:

Kamala Harris, and it isn’t close

Losers:

Everyone else

This race is shaking out very quickly, despite the crowded field. Now that she’s had her breakout moment, Kamala Harris is going to be hard, hard, hard for the other candidates to take down.

Think about it: How’s it going to look to identity-politics-oriented Democrats when two old, gray-haired white guys start going after the lone woman of color in the field? Exactly. So you won’t see them do that. And if they can’t go after her, how are they going to stop her?

Good question. Glad I don’t have to answer it.

That is all.

Tonight is Fauxcahontas Fest for the Democrats

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

Last week, we talked about the fact that the Democrat Party leaders don’t do anything by chanceThe contention by the DNC that the lineup for the two debate panels tonight and tomorrow night were determined by drawing names out of a hat at random is transparently absurd. The thought that this party, which does everything it does and says everything its people say based on polling and focus groups would leave such a crucial part of its campaign to oust Donald Trump to chance is laughable.

As we pointed out in that June 15 piece, the two panels have been clearly constructed to give the advantage to Elizabeth Warren (tonight) and Pete Buttigieg (tomorrow), who together had become the party’s dream ticket before Buttigieg’s horrible two days back in South Bend over the weekend. The party leaders are probably regretting going out on that particular limb for Mayor Pete now that his intractable problems with black voters have become a national story.

But boy, are they going all-in for Fauxcahontas. Today, we learned that Little Big Moneywaster will not just be the only leading candidate on tonight’s stage, but she will actually be positioned in the dead center of the field. This time, though, party spokespeople don’t expect you to believe that is all purely by chance. Here is how that all works, as explained by the news-fakers at NBC:

NBC on Tuesday announced the candidate positions on the stage for the two-night event on June 26 and 27, and it will feature the contenders who’ve been leading in the polls in the middle of the stage at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.

That means on Night One, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas will be in the middle, while Night Two will feature former Vice President Biden and Sanders, the Vermont senator, standing side-by-side at center stage.

Thus, Little Big Mouth Always Running gets to dominate the stage next to Irish Bob O’Rourke, whose own campaign has imploded to the point that he polled just 1% in the most recent Emerson poll, and a slightly better 3% in the new YouGov poll out this morning.

The staging could not be more advantageous for Lieawatha: Standing next to the awkward, arm-waving goofball from El Paso, she is going to look positively dignified by comparison.

After Warren gets to stand out on a kiddie stage with no one polling at better than 3%, Joe Biden and The Commie have to face off while standing right next to one another. This picture of two old, gray-haired, pastly-white Swamp rats with a combined age of 153 (that is not a typo) in the center of the stage is not going to be a good look at all for them, or for a Party that likes to think of itself as the champion of minorities and younger generations.

The idea there was initially to give Mayor Pete, age 37, a chance to look like a shining light of youth  by comparison and to also present himself as the reasonable adult in the room as the nation’s leading Commie and Unfrozen Caveman Senator went after each other. But that all went to hell when Buttigieg’s attempt to go back home and actually try to do his day job crashed up on the shoals of a group of Black Lives Matter protesters.

Now, that second debate night is looking more like a golden opportunity for Kamala Harris to catch lightning in a bottle, if she’s capable. We’ll see.

But tonight, it’s all about the party and the media’s effort to promote Fauxcahontas, the party’s most transparent fraud and pathological liar, as their new favored candidate. Given the sorry nature of the competition, and the way Democrat voters love to be lied to, it’s almost certain to work.

That is all.
