AOC and Her Fellow Radicals Threaten to Burn the Democrat Party to the Ground

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

As Notre Dame Cathedral burns to the ground, the Democrat Party leadership threatens to join it.  – Nancy Pelosi was featured in a puff piece interview with reliable Democrat activist Leslie Stahl on CBS’ “60 Minutes” fake news program Sunday evening.

At one point, Stahl pointed out the different groups within the House Democratic caucus. “You have these wings — AOC and her group on one side,” Stahl said.

“That’s like five people,” Pelosi smirked.

Stahl responded by correcting the Speaker, saying that the “progressive group is more than five.”

“Well, I’m progressive — I’m a progressive, yeah,” Pelosi responded.

San Fran Nan may be “progressive,” but there are varying degrees of progressivism, and hers pales in comparison to that of our Bronx heroine, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

As the New York Post points out in the linked article, the House Democrat “Progressive” Caucus is in fact the largest single segment of the Party’s house membership, consisting of 98 members, of whom AOC is among the “most recognizable,” as the Post somewhat hilariously puts it. What an understatement.

Pelosi claims to be in full control of her collection of miscreants, grifters and radical activists, telling Stahl that “By and large, whatever orientation they came to Congress with, they know that we have to hold the center. That we have to … go down the mainstream.” When Stahl asked her if “progressives” like AOC really understand that, Pelosi nervously replied that they do.

Well, you could’ve fooled AOC, Nan. Today, she told the Yahoo! news podcast “Skullduggery” that a Biden nomination “would be going backwards”:

“That does not particularly animate [me] right now,” she said, adding that she has “a lot of issues” with a potential Biden run.

“I can understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the ‘good old days’ with Obama, with Obama’s vice president. There’s an emotional element to that, but I don’t want to go back. I want to go forward.”

Oh. San Fran Nan’s botox is going to explode when she reads that. After all, Creepy Uncle Joe is the Democrat Party’s great doddering hope of appealing to the “mainstream” as Pelosi likes to refer to it, which really means the center/left segment of “independent” voters. As demented as San Fran Nan is, she is still enough in touch with reality to realize that no Democrat nominee can win the presidency without tacking some moderate votes on top of the Party’s hard-left voter base.

But AOC is having none of that. Having no use for Biden and his “mainstream” nonsense, her choice should be obvious to everyone:

“I haven’t endorsed anybody, but I’m very supportive of Bernie,” she told “Skullduggery.” “I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is … truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational.”

So, no more of that fake commie stuff from the Democrat Party for AOC – she wants to got the full commie this time, and what better way to do that than with the old Bolshevik or the fake Indian?

Notre Dame Cathedral burned right down to the ground today because firefighters in Paris have no means of containing a conflagration in a structure like that venerable landmark. It is beginning to look as if the Democrat Party “leadership” is headed for a similar disaster, given that it has no means of containing their growing legion of chaos creators exemplified by AOC and Ilhan Omar.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

That is all.

Mayor Pete Has Stolen Beto’s Media Date to the Dance

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

Why, what could possibly go wrong? – A team of Chinese scientists is grafting human genes into monkeys, in an effort to make them “smarter and more human-like.” I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

According to the report in the Business Recorder, “Researchers edited the human version of a gene known as ‘MCPH1’ into the macaques. The gene made the monkeys’ brain develop along a more human-like timelineThe gene-hacked monkeys showed better reaction times and improved short-term memories in comparison to their unaltered peers...”  I smell a sequel to “Plant of the Apes” in there somewhere.

In all seriousness, these monkeys should immediately announce their candidacy for the Democrat presidential nomination. They would smarter than half the field, better-behaved that Irish Bob O’Rourke, make a great target for Amy Klobuchar to vent her frustrations, and be far more “human-like” than Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders.

And speaking of Irish Bob O’Rourke… – Here’s the problem with being a media-created Democrat “Rising Star”: Everything tends to go to crap when the media inevitably finds a new rising star to create. For our hero, Irish Bob, it’s all turning into a tale of woe – or, more accurately, one of woeful polls that came out yesterday in the states that make up the first two contests of the nominating process.

First came a new Monmouth University poll of registered Democrat voters in Iowa, where O’Rourke spent the first week or so of his official campaign in March, driving around the corn fields in his carbon dioxide-emitting gas-powered van because he wanted to show he was a man of the people and the people in Iowa don’t drive no Teslas because Teslas don’t use no Ethanol, don’t you know. That pandering strategy apparently did not work out so well for our sheep suit-wearing fake Hispanic, nor did all the jumping up on the nearest table and waving his arms to get attention.

The results of the Monmouth poll are clear: Iowans don’t much care for Beto. O’Rourke, who just a few months ago was widely touted as one of the favorites in this race by his legion of media adorers, came in a very weak sixth place with just 6% support, trailing Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris and even Fauxcahontas in the results.

Yes, friends, Iowa Democrats prefer a fake Indian to a fake Hispanic. Go figure.

As if that result weren’t awful enough for the premiere media darling of 2018, the folks at St. Anselm’s College released a poll of New Hampshire Democrat voters to make matters even more depressing. It turns out that Granite State Democrats would rather live free or die than vote for a circus clown who livestreams his dental cleanings and calls Bibi Netanyahu a racist.

Irish Bob again comes in a very weak sixth place, again with just 6% support in this poll. He trails the same five other candidates as in New Hampshire, though in a slightly different order, with the fake Indian popping up ahead of Harris in this state.

So, what’s going on here? Well, several things.

First, as I noted a few weeks ago, Irish Bob most likely missed his window of opportunity to become an immediate, early leader in this race. He was without question the media’s favorite Democrat at the end of 2018 – they had a crush on him like a high school cheerleader with a crush on the team’s quarterback. That crush would have continued and even intensified had he returned the media’s longing desires by immediately and decisively announcing his candidacy on New Year’s Day or very shortly thereafter.

But he didn’t do that. Instead, he did what high school quarterbacks often do and fooled around for a few months. While the adoring media longed to have its precious Beto in the race, Irish Bob chose to play the field, as it were, hemming and hawing, often disappearing for weeks at a time, and refusing to commit to the relationship that the media so desperately desired.

In the meantime, other candidates anxious to attain the media’s “Rising Star” status were getting into the race and eagerly courting the media’s affections. First came Kamala Harris, who rocketed up the charts firmly into a strong 3rd place behind Biden and Sanders as soon as she offered to take the media out on their first date. It seemed to be a match made in fake news media heaven for awhile, until Harris began committing repeated gaffes, like getting caught on camera letting a CNN fake reporter help her pick out jackets at a high-dollar department store. That show of favoritism to one fake media outlet served to turn other fake media outlets off and had them go out looking for another “Rising Star” to create.

Enter Pete Buttigieg, or “Mayor Pete”, as his media adorers now love to call him. Young, good-looking, smart, quick with the recitation of his favorite talking points, able to hold his own in a tough interview with Chris Wallace – young Mayor Pete seemingly has it all, including being openly gay and married, which is like manna from heaven for his media courtiers.

As first Irish Bob’s and then Kamala’s “rising stars” have faded, it is no accident at all that Mayor Pete’s has eclipsed them in the Democrat Party’s media-created night sky. That’s what a plethora of softball interviews on the cable and broadcast networks, along with all the glowing “He’s just like another Kennedy!” profiles in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the New Yorker and Vanity Fair will do for a guy.

And here’s the thing about Mayor Pete: He’s not stupid or self-absorbed enough to just blow his media cheerleaders off, like their precious Beto did. Nor is he inept enough to engage in a similar series of off-putting gaffes like the bumbling Kamala.

No, Mr. Buttigieg is not a mere shooting star, no flash in the pan, as it were. You should get used to seeing his name running strong in the polling in this race, at least until someone even more attractive to the fickle fake media cheerleaders comes along and sweeps them off their feet.

Other than possibly those monkeys in China, it’s getting harder and harder to see who is still out there who might swoop in and get the media’s date to the Homecoming dance.

That is all.

Jump on in, Alec Baldwin, the Water’s Fine!

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

Go for it, dude. – Fading actor and public assault and battery specialist Alec Baldwin took to his Twitter account yesterday (because that’s how all the fading celebrities communicate – right, Alyssa Milano?) and said this:

Yeah, that’s what Hillary Clinton thought, too. But, oh, hell, why not? Why not have an actor who is most famous for impersonating the President run against him? Would he be any less credible than than the assortment of cranks, hacks, and political grifters who are already in the race?

After all, the field already includes a candidate who is most famous for impersonating an Indian, another who thinks he is Spartacus, a senator who got ahead by sleeping around, another senator who is most notable for abusing her staff, a senator from New York who nobody can figure out why in the hell she’s in the race, a loser who wears sheep suits and rides a skateboard onto stage, a Commie who honeymooned at Lenin’s tomb, and a former vice president who can’t keep his hands off of women and children.

Would Alec Baldwin really bring any less credibility to a presidential race than that clown car? I mean, shoot, he did play Jack Ryan in a movie that one time, so he’s got that going for him.

And I haven’t even mentioned Pete Buttigieg yet. Here’s a guy who favors murdering children right up until the moment at which they would be born and even beyond, and he just spent half an interview on “Meet the Press” and much of his speech at something called the LGBTQ Victory Fund National Champagne Brunch questioning the religious beliefs of the sitting President and Vice President of the United States.

Well, isn’t that special? (Some of you baby boomers will get that reference; you Millennials will probably have to Google it.)

As I predicted a few weeks ago, Mr. Buttigieg is the latest media-facilitated “rising star” in Democrat circles, a guy with no real notable political achievements to speak of – other than getting elected to a notable office – but a guy who checks a lot of the demographic boxes favored by the Democrats’ social justice warrior voter base and who looks good on television. He’s probably about to be eclipsed by the looming, very large presence of the next media-facilitated Democrat “rising star”, Stacey Abrams, but for now, he’s da bomb in media circles, the guy all the Sunday shows are dying to have as their guest and all the fake newspapers and magazines like Vanity Fair can’t wait to profile and compare to Kennedys. He should enjoy all the attention while he can.

But wait, there’s more!

Now, we have this Eric Swalwell guy officially running. He made that official announcement on … wait for it… the Late Show with Stephen Colbert! Because of course he did.

Swalwell is a guy who has the maturity level of the average college frat social director – he is Otter from “Animal House” in the flesh.

His entire schtick is to go on CNN and MSNBC and lie about all the proof of Russia Collusion he has seen but can’t talk about in any detail because it’s all like doublesecretprobation and stuff and only he and Adam Schiff have seen it but everyone is supposed to believe him because he’s the social director for the biggest frat of all, the Democrat Party.

*sigh*

If Lorne Michaels and the writers at Saturday Night Live were intent on creating real humor these days rather than tiresome political swill, they’d invite Tim Matheson to guest host and have him do an impression of Eric Swalwell announcing his presidential run standing next to the beer keg at the frat party. Have Stephen Colbert play the Boone character. That would be some funny stuff right there.

But back to Alec Baldwin: He was likely joking with that tweet yesterday, but hey, why wouldn’t he go ahead and jump into this race? After all, it’s already a car filled with clowns, and he’s a professional clown these days, so he’d fit right in.

Kamala would probably even let him call shotgun.

That is all.

Loser Stacey Abrams Personifies the Bizarre Requirement for Democrat Superstardom

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

Qualification Numero Uno: Are you a recent loser? – Tim Ryan, a relatively obscure congressman from Ohio and Eric Swalwell, a disgusting demagogue from California, both entered the swelling field of candidates for the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination this week. Cool, right?

Right. But you don’t need to spend too much time worrying about whether either one will ultimately win the party’s nomination for one simple reason: Neither of them can make a credible claim of being a political loser.

Wait, what? Is that a typo? Am I mainlining rotgut vodka like Chelsea Handler has been doing for the last 30 years? Am I auditioning for a job with CNN by getting it 100% wrong????

Well, no, none of that. I’m dead serious here: It is a simple fact that, in order to be considered to be a serious contender for the 2020 Democrat nomination, a candidate has to first be a fully-certified loser. In fact, being a recent, laughable loser is the quickest way to have our fake news media declare you to be a “superstar.” The Democrat Party and its lapdogs in the fake news media are quite literally obsessed with political loooooooosers, especially recent ones.

Irish Bob O’Rourke, who managed to lose his 2018 senate race to incumbent Ted Cruz despite piling up a 3-to-1 spending advantage, is the most obvious example of this growing phenomenon. The media’s beloved “Beto” has been declared either a “rising star” or “superstar” by pretty much every major fake media outlet in the free world at this point, for no reason other than that he managed to lose fairly closely to his GOP opponent. Well, that and live-streaming his dental appointments on Facebook, which was just so darn cool.

Then there’s the even odder case of Stacey Abrams, the loser in last year’s Georgia gubernatorial race. She managed to lose that race despite a major spending advantage, along with a rampant, blatant voter fraud campaign in her hip pocket. Despite all of that, and despite a slavish news media giving her tens of millions of dollars in free air time and print space, the final count showed her coming up more than 50,000 votes short. There just weren’t enough cemetery, prison or illegal alien voters in all of Georgia to close that gap.

So, what has she done in response? Why, she’s taken a page out of the Pantsuit Princess’s book of political projection, accusing her opponent of being the one who was stealing votes, refusing to accept the outcome of the race, and declaring herself to be the rightful governor of Georgia, a claim literally no one actually believes but corrupt media hacks glowingly support.

Don’t believe me? Here’s how MSNBC’s bigot host Joy Ann Reid let her Twitter audience know Abrams would be her guest on her Sunday morning show:

She’s not just another failed politician who’s never won a race above the state representative level: She’s a “superstar”!

See what I’m getting at here? Indeed, Abrams is such a darn “superstar” that there is rampant chatter in Democrat and media circles (but I repeat myself) that she is probably going to mount her own presidential campaign. Because, hey, why not?

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

Why not, indeed? Abrams likely sits in her extremely roomy living room easy chair, perusing the latest Democrat presidential polls and thinks “geez, all these people are losers, too, so why not me?”

Look who’s leading those polls:

Joe Biden – two-time miserable looooser in Democrat presidential politics;

The Commie – loooooser to the Pantsuit Princess in the rigged primaries of 2016;

Irish Bob O’Rourke – last year’s most famous loser, running a weak third to the Commie;

Kamala Harris – such a looooser that she had to carry on a years-long affair with Willie Brown in order to advance her career;

Those four loooosers are combining to hog 70% of the support in the current RealClearPolitics average of Democrat polls. The rest of the field, consisting almost exclusively of politicians who have never lost a political race in their lives, are left to scramble for the remaining 30%.

This is reality.

So, when you see reports indicating that a miserable political looooser like Stacey Abrams is considered to be a “superstar” in Democrat/media circles, don’t laugh, because these people are deadly serious. They are obsessed with such losers, and it’s a safe bet that it’s just a matter of time before the failure from Georgia enters the race.

Republicans everywhere should rejoice.

That is all.

The Week in Review: The Perils of Biden and AOC

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

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with AOC getting history wrong – because she always gets history wrong – and just went downhill from there.:

A parade of women had just started to emerge from the closet to complain about Creepy Joe Biden’s fondling of them, but the reliable lapdogs at the Washington Post were already on the job providing cover for him.:

On Monday, AOC kept herself busy surveying the price of food at La Guardia Airport while waiting to fly on a carbon-spewing airliner – you know, the kind of thing she plans to eliminate with her Green New Deal. (Hint: She got the price of the pastry every bit as wrong as she got the history of the 25th Amendment.):

As the second woman came forward to complain about Creepy Joe Biden, it wasn’t real hard to predict what was still to come.:

It was April 1, and our erstwhile ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen thought he would play an incredibly narcissistic practical joke. Nobody laughed.:

Robert Wilson posted a fantastic graphic here. Note the expansion of that natural gas line over the last 15 years – it’s why your air is so much cleaner today than it was 25 years ago.  Fracking says, “You’re welcome, America!”:

As President Donald Trump threatened to close the southern border with Mexico due to the ongoing invasion from Central America, our nation’s fake news media focused on what was really, really, really important to vegans and snowflake freaks everywhere.:

The hypocrisy of the lunatic left, part 29,282.:

With the Mueller report issued and exonerating President Trump, the evil minions at CNN found their already-terrible ratings in free fall. How would this cable joke survive without the captive audiences in our nation’s airports?:

Cool. No use wasting any time.:

While women continued to come forward to complain about his handsy habits, Joe Biden continued to get a free pass from the fake news media related to his real scandal.:

Meanwhile, the news-fakers over at CBS News were working diligently to paint human traffickers in a glowing light. You seriously cannot overstate that a raging dumpster fire our national news media truly is.:

So…damn…awesome.:

So. Damn. Awesome, Part II from the same speech.:

It’s a clown car. Literally, a car filled with circus clowns, led by Jabba the Nadler.:

Can you blame her?:

What in the hell is wrong with Sen. Mike Lee that he would vote against this? You can’t write it off to his supposed Libertarian “principles,” since the filibuster rule was enacted in the 1830s by racist southern Democrat slave owners as a means of preventing the senate from abolishing slavery. The crap this guy and Rand Paul pull on big votes like this is maddening.:

If you don’t follow the hilarious Babylon Bee on Twitter, you are really missing out on the fun.:

No comment necessary.:

And, as Wednesday drew to a close, the news fakers at the New York Times did their duty to support the Democrat narrative by rolling out yet another heinously fake story. Because of course they did.:

Speaking of the New York times, its’ fake “journalists” need to broaden their horizons.:

Oh, hey, we’re up to seven now…:

Despite all the media disinformation and misinformation, the Trump 2020 landslide kept building …:

…and building…:

…and building.:

You go first, Jake.:

Just when you thought the Democrat 2020 presidential field could not get any worse, the most disgraceful pathological liar in congress proves you wrong.:

Now, if we could just ban the U.S. media from covering the British royal family…:

Seriously, where have these news fakers been?:

Look up the word “slimy” in your Funk & Wagnall’s dictionary, and you’ll find a photo of this guy next to it.:

The perfect Twitter meme…:

The perfect Twitter video meme…:

…and I’m just going to end it with this.:

That is all.

Joe Biden Would be the Democrats’ Weakest Possible Nominee

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

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? – The fake news media pretty much ignored the story, but U.S. weekly unemployment claims fell to their lowest point since the records began being kept half a century ago last week. The Trump economy is so strong that even Sears, which has been shuttering outlets since the Carter Administration, is opening new stores again.

The ADP private sector jobs report showed only 129,000 new jobs being created in March, but that low number is largely due to the fact that there are more than 1,000,000 more job openings today than there are unemployed workers. Given that, we can expect the government’s non-farm payroll report to be issued this morning to also come in with a low number. [Note: The BLS jobs report actually came in at a very strong 196,000, beating expectations once again.]

All of which ties back to the reality that the biggest problem we have in Trump’s economy is finding enough qualified workers to fill all the jobs being created. That’s a good problem to have.

He’s experienced, maybe too much so. – One of the things supporters of Joe Biden point to when making their case for why he’d make the best nominee for the Democrats in 2020 is that he’s experienced, and he certainly is. Biden was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1972 at the age of 29.

During his first term in the Senate, he served with such blasts from the past as J. William Fulbright, Sam Ervin, George McGovern, Frank Church, Russell Long, and 1968 Democrat presidential nominee Hubert Humphrey. Fulbright was first elected to the Senate in 1945, Ervin in 1954.

But, while long years of experience in national government may be a positive for Biden in his run against an assortment of no-accounts in his party’s primaries, is not necessarily an advantage in a general election against Donald Trump, who was elected in 2016 over another “experienced” candidate specifically because he was an outsider.

Indeed, since Biden first came to Washington, the American people have shown a very strong bias against electing “experienced” guys like him to serve in the presidency.

Going back to the 1976 election, here is how many years’ experience in Washington DC our past seven presidents had when they got elected:

Jimmy Carter – 0

Ronald Reagan – 0

George H.W. Bush – roughly 20

Bill Clinton – 0

George W. Bush – 0

Barack Obama – 2

Donald Trump – 0

Combined, those seven presidents had about 22 years’ total experience in the DC Swamp, with Bush 41 having almost all of them. Bush 41, as we all remember, was defeated in 1992 by an outsider, Bill Clinton, who got a big assist from an even more authentic outsider, Ross Perot.

Are you seeing a trend here? I am.

Biden will no doubt be running as the guy who would bring us the third term of America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama, for whom he served as Vice President. Oh, hey, didn’t the Pantsuit Princess, who served as Obama’s Secretary of State, already try that one? How’d that work out for you, Democrats?

But what other reason would the American people have for electing Biden to the presidency? It certainly wouldn’t be based on his senate record, where he was wrong about literally every major issue our country has faced over the last 46 years. It couldn’t be based on all of his achievements as Vice President since, like every Veep, he didn’t accomplish a damn thing while serving in that office.

It definitely wouldn’t be based on his comparative youth and vigor, since Biden will be older on Election Day, 2020 than our oldest previous serving President, Ronald Reagan, was on the day he left office after serving two full terms. When you really get right down to it, the only real reason why Biden appears to want to run is that he regrets not running in 2016, when he reasonably should have, and now thinks it is “his turn” to be the Democrat Party’s nominee.

Nominating anyone because it is their “turn”, lacking any other compelling reason for doing so, almost never works out for either party in modern times. Let’s go back to 1976 again and take a look at those results:

1976 – Gerald Ford (Loss)

1980 – Jimmy Carter (Landslide Loss)

1984 – Walter Mondale (Record Landslide Loss)

1988 – Bush 41 (Won, became a one-term POTUS)

1996 – Bob Dole (Landslide Loss)

2000 – Al Gore (Loss)

2004 – John Kerry (Loss)

2008 – John McCain (Miserable Loss)

2012 – Mitt Romney (Loss)

2016 – Pantsuit Princess (Loss)

Look at those results. In all that time, the only “it’s my turn” candidate who was nominated by either party and actually won the election was George Herbert Walker Bush, and he only won because he was carried into office on the enormous coattails of Ronaldus Magnus. When left to run on his own devices after four years of deviating from the Reagan agenda and raising taxes, he also suffered a miserable defeat.

Joe Biden will most likely not go onto become the Democrat nominee in 2020 – I’m frankly still not convinced he’s even going to make a go of it, with all of these women still coming out of the woodwork to complain about his handsy habits.

But if he does get the nomination, Donald Trump and all of his supporters should celebrate.

That is all.

The Long Knives Come Out for Creepy Joe Biden – But Whose Knives?

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

Ok, it’s official, the long knives are out for Creepy Uncle Joe. But who’s controlling the knives? – When you are leading the horse race polls for the Democrat Party presidential nomination and the news-faking Democrat activist lapdogs at the New York Times start going after you, you know that someone else in your own party is coordinating the effort to take you out. For Joe Biden, the question at this point is who?

On Tuesday the Times ran a report detailing not one, but two more women who have come forward to make complaints about the ex-Veep’s well-known habit of getting more than a little handsy with women and children at public events. One woman, who was 19 at the time, said the then-Vice President placed his hand on her thigh while the two were seated on stage next to one another and did not have the sense to remove it despite her visible discomfort.  The other, 59 at the time, said Biden initially placed his hand on her shoulder and then began slowly moving it down her back before her husband saw what was happening and interrupted things by telling a joke.

The Times piece is careful to note that neither woman is accusing good ol’ Joe of “harassment” – not exactly, anyway – and to include remarks from women who are supporting the candidate’s preferred narrative that he’s just a harmless old guy who means no harm. It’s key to note that all such women who have come forth with such supporting remarks so far – from Mika to Whoopi to Ash Carter’s wife to Mazie Hirono to Meghan McCain – are part of the political ruling class in our country, and members of that class pretty much always stick together in times such as this.

But will this counteroffensive by the Biden camp work? Because what began on Friday as a single accusation is quickly turning into a flood, and the more women who’ve been groped by Biden come forward, the more will likely feel emboldened to do the same.

And let’s be honest, there are many, many more waiting in the wings. It is not like any of this is “new” news. Here’s what I wrote about Biden’s problematic past back in November, 2017:

  • As rumors of handsy ol’ Joe Biden’s plans to run for the presidency for a third time in 2020 continue to swirl, leftwingers everywhere are getting very nervous about the fact that there are literally hours upon hours of video out there in the public domain of the former Veep inappropriately putting his hands on women and girls and invading their space.  As liberal heroes all over the country, like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and Al Franken are revealed to be horrific sexual harassers, it is becoming quite obvious that a Biden run for the presidency would be like manna from heaven for the Republican Party.
  • Even the near-terminal nitwits who run the ultra-leftwing online fake news site, the Huffington Post, are waking up to this uncomfortable reality.  And when the HuffPo is waking up to inconvenient truths about the left, that means pretty much everyone else already has, since the folks at the HuffPo are very slow learners.  On Saturday, Amanda Terkel, the fake news site’s Washington Bureau Chief, published a very long expose’ on Handsy Joe’s history of publicly groping women, saying  that “From former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly to producer Harvey Weinstein to comedian Louis C.K., men are losing their jobs after years of having sexually harassed or assaulted women with impunity.  Biden is the wrong guy to bear the standard of any party purporting to speak for the victims of unaccountable power.”  Well, yeah.  So good of you to notice, at long last.

Indeed, it isn’t just the Democrat lapdogs at the Times who are rushing to publish butt-covering pieces critical of Biden’s behavior, present and past – they’re suddenly popping up all over the place. In its own CYA piece, The Atlantic also notes that this is nothing new:

In one way, the allegations against Biden are shocking. In another way, though, they are precisely the opposite. Flores and Lappos have accused Biden, after all, of engaging in exactly the kind of behavior that he has been repeatedly documented engaging in, over a period of years, through file photos and C-SPAN footage and the other media that steadily help to convert American politicians into American celebrities. Gawker, in early 2015, published an image essay taxonomizing the varied ways Biden has been photographed interacting—closely and intimately and publicly—with women and girls. So did New YorkmagazineThe Daily Show offered a video-based version of the same: “The Audacity of Grope,” the segment was called. (It featured documentary footage of Biden engaged in assorted acts of woman-whispering, and culminated in Samantha Bee, the show’s fake White House correspondent at the time, appearing with the front of her blouse and the back of her skirt marked with handprints. She had just come from a meeting, Bee explained to Jon Stewart, with the then vice president.)

The Biden camp is out there now accusing the Bernie Sanders campaign of putting all these women up to coming out en masse, based solely on the fact that the initial accuser, Nevada political activist Lucy Flores, formerly worked for the Sanders campaign. But is that really what is going on here? Maybe, but given the diversity of those complaining thus far, it seems doubtful. While it certainly would not be in any way unusual for the Commie and Flores to have coordinated the initial complaint, the three other women who have thus far come forward do not appear to have any affiliation with the Sanders camp.

Another possibility is that this is all an “inoculation” effort coordinated by Biden’s own camp. It could be an attempt to get several accusations out there into the public domain by “complainers” rather than “accusers.” It is interesting to note that all four of these women have been very careful not to accuse Biden of trying anything sexual with them, supporting the “harmless old man” narrative preferred by the Biden camp and parrotted in most of the fake news media stories so far. The four complaints thus far have given Biden a chance to appear gracious and almost even thoughtful – to the extent the insufferable doofus Biden is capable of being “thoughtful” –  in his responses, and could help to inoculate him against more damaging accusations that might arise in the future.

Or it could be just an organic thing, an almost inevitable outcome created by the ham-handed behavior of a man who has been doing all of this in front of filming cameras for almost half a century now. As the Times story notes, the societal norms have shifted beneath Biden’s feet over the decades, and behavior that might have been written off decades ago as just a harmless old man expressing affection in an obnoxious way can no longer be written off so easily.

Any of the three possibilities seem equally likely, and I frankly don’t care. This was all going to become a problem for Creepy Uncle Joe sooner or later, and the only surprising thing about any of it is that anyone is actually surprised at all.

That is all.

Mika, Whoopi – Believe the Women!!!! Wait, no, NOT THOSE WOMEN!!!!!

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

All you #MeToo warriors must feel like complete dopes this morning.  – This was as predictable as it is repugnant: The parade of leftist women who have spent the last year and a half screaming that all women who make accusations of sexual harassment and assault must – must, they say – be believed out of hand are now coming out of the woodwork to say, “Hey, we didn’t mean THOSE women!” Meaning, of course, any woman who dares to make the #MeToo claim about the frontrunner for the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination, Crazy Uncle Joe Biden.

Mika WhatshernamethatIcanneverspellright had her personal coming out as an anti-#MeToo activist on Monday’s “Morning Joe,” saying this about the ex-Vice President:

“There’s a lot of things I know about Joe Biden. I’ve known him for a long time,” Brzezinski stated. “He is extremely affectionate, extremely flirtatious in a completely safe way. I am sure that somebody can misconstrue something he’s done, but as much as I can know what’s in anyone’s heart, I don’t think that there’s a bad intent on his part at all.”

Don’t you just love that phrase, “extremely flirtatious in a completely safe way”? Do you think Morning Mika would have ever in a million years given two seconds’ thought about applying it to any politician with an “R” next to his name? Please.

Never to be outdone in the realm of sucking up to Democrats on national television, never-funny failed comic Whoopi Goldberg used her seat on “The View” to go even further than Morning Mika, saying “I don’t want Joe to stop doing that,” meaning Biden’s habit of placing his hands on women’s shoulders, sniffing their hair and whispering sweet nothings into their ears.

Goldberg went further, attacking Biden’s first accuser, Nevada #MeToo warrior Lucy Flores:

“Joe is a hands-on kind of guy. I’ve never heard anyone—she says she felt violated. I have to take her at her word. But it would have been nice if she turned to him and say, ‘You know what, I don’t really like this. Please don’t do this, Mr. Vice President. I’m not comfortable with this.’ Something, because he’s standing right there.”

Why, it’s just Uncle Joe, Lucy! He’s just an innocent, “hands-on kind of guy” and you need to either tolerate that or chastise the Vice President of the United States (Biden assaulted Flores in 2014) right there to his face! Don’t worry about those Secret Service guys with bulging jackets hiding their .44 magnums – you just get up in the Veep’s face!”

Try to imagine how Whoopi and all the other shrieking SJWs would have reacted had a male host of any television program said that about any #MeToo accuser. That guy would have been out of job in about 30 seconds, yanked off the set by ABC’s management before the show ended.

But it’s Whoopi, attacking a powerless woman who is pointing a finger at a prominent Democrat, so that’s ok.

As Former Democratic Aide Amy Lappos came forward with her own accusations about Biden’s “extremely flirtatious in a very safe way” habit of assaulting women at public events, other prominent Dems were rushing to the Party Patriarch’s defense. Despicable Illinois Senator Dick Durbin said Biden’s actions were “not disqualifying,” while ex-Senator from the same state Carol Mosely Braun called Biden “a man who spent his life being nice to people,” something that no #MeToo activist anywhere has ever said was a valid excuse for Biden’s type of unwanted advances.

Lappos accuses Biden thusly:

“He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me,” she told the Hartford Courant, recounting their meeting at a 2009 fundraiser. “When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth.”

Oh, hey, Amy, that’s just sweet, non-threatening ol’ Joe being nice to people. What, you don’t like Eskimo kisses? Are you a racist or something?

Other Biden defenders attacked Flores directly. Rick Wilson attacked her for actually being prepared for the interview in which she made her accusation, saying “As somebody who’s done a hell of a lot of media training I can tell when somebody’s been [prepped] for an interview to within an inch of their life.” Uh, ok.

Randi Weingarten, President of a major teachers union, tweeted “I just hope it’s not true that Flores was prompted to write her essay because of her work with Bernie campaign.” See, you just can’t believe those women; you know, women who worked for Bernie. Wink, wink.

See how this works?

Flores responded to Weingarten’s absurd taunt by noting she hasn’t endorse Sanders or anyone else in the race, and then pointed out that, given the immense wealth of evidence of Biden’s poor behavior towards women that exists in the public domain, “this should have been addressed long ago.”

Bingo.

So, why hasn’t that reckoning happened until now? Lappos answered that one quite succinctly: “I never filed a complaint, to be honest, because he was the vice president. I was a nobody.”

Bingo again.

See, sexual assault is all about power, and Biden, first as a prominent Democrat Senator who was always “nice to people” in Mosely-Braun’s words, and then as Barack Hussein Obama’s Vice President, always had the power.

This is exactly, precisely the very situation that the #MeToo movement and those who, like Mika and Whoopi have pretended to speak for it, was supposed to address. But when push comes to shove, and the guy being accused happens to be the Democrat frontrunner, well, don’t bother these people with silly things like principles and intellectual honesty, and least of all, believing the women.

Not those women.

That is all.

Uncle Joe’s Creepiness Comes Back to Haunt Him

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

Uncle Joe’s creepiness comes back to haunt him – and this is just the beginning.  – The fake news media will do its dead-level best to kill this story, but it’s out there now, and there are lots more just like it.

In case you get your “news” from one of the major broadcast networks and missed it, a former Nevada assemblywoman and Democrat #MeToo activist, Lucy Flores, is accusing Creepy Joe Biden of groping and kissing her at a campaign event in 2014. Here is how she describes the incident:

“I was taking deep breaths and preparing myself to make my case to the crowd, I felt two hands on my shoulders. I froze. “Why is the vice-president of the United States touching me?” I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified. I thought to myself, “I didn’t wash my hair today and the vice-president of the United States is smelling it. And also, what in the actual f*ck? Why is the vice-president of the United States smelling my hair?” He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused. There is a Spanish saying, “tragame tierra,” it means, “earth, swallow me whole.” I couldn’t move and I couldn’t say anything. I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me. My name was called and I was never happier to get on stage in front of an audience.”

The truth, of course, is that Biden has made a habit of such inappropriate groping of women, girls and small children at public events throughout his political career. There are literally dozens of video clips of such incidents, with women and children visibly cringing as Biden puts his hands on them, snuggles into their hair and even kisses them right there on stage for all to see.

Biden’s supporters – which includes the preponderance of our fake news media, of course – have spent the last 40 years claiming it’s all fine, that Biden is somehow harmless, and that the women and kids really are enjoying it all. And of course, as they had been groped by a powerful senator and then vice president, the gropees have been reluctant to complain.

But times are changing, and social justice warriors like Ms. Flores are not going to just sit by quietly and take this sort of abuse.

We also have stories out there in the public domain about Biden making a habit of taking nude midnight swims in front of secret service agents, some of them women.

Again, the fake news media will do all it can to keep covering for Creepy Uncle Joe, but that is going to be far, far harder to do in today’s social media-dominated world.

All of which may be one of the reasons why the guy who is leading the Democrat polls is taking so long to formally announce his campaign. There’s a lot to try to explain away here, and the elderly ex-VP may not be up to that job.

That is all.
