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.
