The Monday News Roundup: Biden, Harris Lose Control of the Court Packing Narrative

When you’ve lost Jake Tapper, you’ve lost control of the narrative. – The Biden/Harris Harris/Biden campaign lost control of the narrative over packing the Supreme Court over the weekend. It obviously won’t last long, because their pals in the news media won’t allow it to do so, but Sunday was fun nonetheless.

Here is Mr. Tapper, actually having a moment of journalistic integrity with the Deputy Campaign Manager for the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden disinformation campaign, Kate Bedingfield:

Tapper began by pointing out that Biden, who had previously said that adding justices to the Supreme Court was “a bonehead idea,” was suddenly unwilling to answer the question.

“Biden opposes adding more justices to the Supreme Court, he has for decades, so why he is refusing to weigh in on it now?” Tapper asked.

“Because Donald Trump and the Republicans don’t get to set the terms of this debate,” Bedingfield replied, arguing that the question was a play to distract voters while they rushed the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

“It’s not the Trump people who invented this question, right?” Tapper asked. “The idea of adding justices to the Supreme Court came from the progressive side of the Democratic Party. It’s a simple question. He has long been against adding justices to the the court. Has he changed his mind or does he have the same position he’s had since 1983?”

Bedingfield pivoted again, saying again that it was an attempt by Republicans to distract from a nominee who would likely change the balance of the court. That Vice President Mike Pence had pushed the issue of court packing at last week’s debate was further proof of that, she concluded.

“This is a simple — it’s a simple question and it’s one frankly that Trump did not invent,” Tapper pushed back, saying again that the notion of court packing had originally come from progressives in the Democratic Party. “I thought odd when Vice President Biden said the other day in response to a reporter’s question that voters do not deserve an answer on this. Of course, voters deserve an answer on his position — on every issue.”

“But we are not going to play their game,” Bedingfield insisted. “He has given an answer. He has answered the question. He has probably answered this question 15 times over the course of the last week. The answer is I am not going to play Donald Trump’s game. I am not going to allow the terms of this debate to shift to a hypothetical that assumes, by the way, that we, the Democrats, are going to lose here. That is really — that is what at the core of this argument they are making. It assumes we are going to lose. Vice President Biden does not accept that. He does not accept that.”

“I think a serious policy question is not a game and I don’t think it’s Trump’s game, but Kate Bedingfield, we always appreciate you coming on the show and answering the questions or deftly side-stepping them,” Tapper gave up, ending the segment. “Thank you. Appreciate it.”

[End]

If you’re expecting Tapper to now bulldog this issue like he would if he was chasing a Republican, you should probably think again. Tapper has now done his pretend journalist-y thing, and will move immediately on to some other topic that is more favorable to Biden. That will allow Tapper to continue getting invited to all the nice cocktail parties in the DC Swamp. Because that’s how all of this works.

As I pointed out yesterday, Biden/Harris Harris/Biden obviously do plan to pack the court if they are elected. If they had no such plan, they would say so. Both of these people were selected by the Democrat power brokers for their willingness to do or say anything the radical left tells them to do and say. The radical left demands the court be packed, because that is the only way its plan to create a communist utopia in America can succeed.

Thus, Biden/Harris Harris/Biden will pack the court.

The only way to avoid that outcome is to re-elect Donald J. Trump. Simple.

Think this isn’t an important election? Think again. – Check out the names on Joe Biden’s short list for Attorney General:

The mass-killer of senior citizens Governor of New York; a former acting AG who was a participant in a coup d’etat on American soil; and a pathetic loser who has no real legal gravitas at all. That’s the list for AG. It’s almost enough to make you long for the days of Janet Reno.

Holy crap.

Pandemic? What pandemic? – I guess the Los Angeles Lakers must have closed out the low-rated NBA finals last night. So, how did the team’s fans celebrate? Why, by staging a mass gathering at the Staples Center and tossing rocks and bottles at police officers:

Love how the corrupt reporter describes the scene as “mostly peaceful.” Orwellian.

There is only one real question about the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation. – She’s been confirmed by the senate before, just 3 years ago. She is extremely well-qualified for the job, and everyone knows it. Absent some major scandal, her ultimate confirmation along the schedule Lindsey Graham has laid out is a fait accompli.

The only real question related to the hearings that begin today is, what fake scandal will the Democrats and their hand-maidens in the media concoct in an effort to try to derail Judge Barrett? Until we know that, the hearings themselves will be just a posturing, demagoguery opportunity for the Democrat members of the Judiciary Committee, including Kamala Harris, who began her disgusting posturing over the weekend by notifying Graham that she will participate remotely because it’s just too darn dangerous for her to show up in person.

What will that fake scandal be? Who knows? But you know something is in the works, and, with the committee’s process scheduled to end on Thursday, it will most likely break over next weekend in an effort to extend the committee process and thus delay the full senate vote.

So the timing is predictable. As for the nature of the inevitable smear, we will just have to wait and see what these evil people make up.

Stay tuned.

That is all.

Biden Masks His Court Packing Position With Lies

Who gets away with this? – Why, any Democrat gets away with it, that’s who:

Yes, friends, you don’t deserve to know what Joe Biden’s position on packing the Supreme Court is before you go vote in this election. You don’t have to believe me or anyone else, the candidate himself just told you that. It’s like Nancy Pelosi and the whole Obamacare deal, when she said that neither Americans nor members of congress needed to know what was in the 2,000 page bill before congress voted on it: “We’ll have to pass the bill to see what’s in it.”

As always, the contempt for the average American held by Democrat politicians is brutally stunning. But it’s nothing new: The only difference between now and 50 years ago is that the politicians no longer make any effort to hide it.

Look, there is no mystery here: Biden’s refusal to answer the question simply means that he is going to pack the court if he is elected. If he weren’t in favor of doing so, he would answer the question. This is not hard.

In order to justify that position, Biden and his supporters in and out of the corrupt news media have now taken to accusing the Republicans and President Trump of “packing the courts” by confirming so many federal judges over the past few years and by pushing the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. Never mind that what the GOP has achieved since 2017 is thanks to the fact that the voters, in fair and free elections, chose to award the Party control of both the presidency and the U.S. Senate.  President Trump’s and Mitch McConnell’s focus on nominating and confirming judges using the process laid out in the Constitution is now being portrayed somehow nefarious in and unfair.

Dan Rather, the guy who literally invented the entire model for “fake news” in the 2004 campaign, tweeted his support for this utterly dishonest line of though on Saturday, and Senate Ted Cruz had a great reply:

You just could never make this stuff up.

Meanwhile, Biden has to have help from his staff to even know which way to exit a podium:

That was after making yet another teleprompter speech to a pretend audience, during which he misread his staff-dictated position on the minimum wage. The Unfrozen Caveman Candidate said he wanted to require a minimum wage of “15 million dollars an hour” rather than $15 per hour.

Personally, I’ll take the $15 million an hour and retire now.

Interestingly, Biden also made this particular speech without wearing a mask as a virtue signal. It remains a mystery how his staff determines whether or not he should wear a mask at any given dictated speech before any given pretend audience.

Obviously, since there is never a real audience consisting of more than 5-8 people, there’s never a valid reason for him to have one on, but he wears one about 70% of the time, apparently purely as a virtue signal to all the suburban housewife Karens out there. Naturally, no one in the pack of incurious sheep who follow him around as his pretend “press corps” has ever had the intellectual curiosity to ask the simple question: How is this determination made? What are the criteria?

Is it purely based on the polling data of the moment? Is there some preset threshold of mask polling support that must be met in order for the candidate to don the mask, and if said support falls below that threshold, he doesn’t wear it?

Given that Democrats make literally every decision they make based on polling and focus group data, this seems most likely. But, just as with Biden/Harris Harris/Biden’s position on packing the courts, the corrupt news media lacks the institutional and personal integrity to do its job and obtain real answers.

Because that is who these corrupt fake journalists are, and it is what they do in today’s America.

That is all.
