“If Joe Biden is elected, he will surrender your country to the mob,” President Donald Trump told an enthusiastic crowd inside Tulsa’s Bank of Oklahoma Center Saturday night, indicating that Trump intends to make Biden either repudiate the violence that has enveloped America’s cities, from Seattle to New York City, or embrace it.
Pollster Zogby Analytics asked more than a thousand likely voters earlier this month if they thought it was likely that presumptive Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden was suffering from the early stages of dementia. The results: “A majority (55%) of likely voters surveyed thought it was more likely … that Vice President Biden is in the early stages of dementia.”
Who fact-checks the fact-checkers? After one its stories was dubiously slapped with a “partly false” rating from Facebook fact-checking partner Lead Stories, The National Pulse dug into the platform’s staff and found that many, including the top brass, are Democratic Party donors and former CNN employees.
A conspiracy theory the leftist media have been simmering on the back burner this year is that President Trump, should he lose the White House on November 3, will refuse to leave office. Every few weeks they turn up the heat and bring it to a boil, the latest example being Dexter Filkins’ offering in The New Yorker. Top military people, Filkins avers, are terrified that Trump is planning a dictatorship and will use the military to establish it.
Following the remarkably robust and surprising jobs report released last Friday, President Trump’s reelection campaign manager Brad Parscale announced that his political rallies would resume: Americans are ready to get back to action, and so is President Trump. The great American comeback is real and the rallies will be tremendous. You’ll again see the kind of crowds and enthusiasm that sleepy Joe Biden can only dream of.
A persistent myth percolating this election season is that former Vice President Joe Biden, the probable nominee of the Democratic Party for president of the United States this year, is some sort of “moderate.” This centrist image is being cultivated by the media, as a way of contrast to President Donald Trump’s supposed “right-wing extremist” image, and the looney Left in Biden’s own Democratic Party — those such as socialist Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, or Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.
Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden is now promoting the absurd idea that President Trump is using the Chinese Virus to promote anger and hatred against Asians. Speaking at an openly racialist event, Biden, who faces a credible sexual-assault allegation from a former staff member, claimed Trump’s response to the Asiatic pathogen has been “nakedly xenophobic.” Biden’s proof?
Lawrence O’Donnell, host of MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, asked Joe Biden last Thursday, “What do you say to women who were ready to vote for Joe Biden, eager to vote for Joe Biden, but this [sexual assault charge] gives them serious pause because they do believe Tara Reade.… what would you say to them about that?” Biden answered: “If they believe Tara Reade, the probably shouldn’t vote for me. I wouldn’t vote for me if I believed Tara Reade.”
Yet another host on leftist MSNBC asked Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden about Tara Reade’s sexual-assault allegation and Biden again denied it. But he also told the network’s Lawrence O’Donnell that he didn’t remember Reade, and that if someone believed her, they shouldn’t vote for him. He wouldn’t vote for himself if he believed Reade.
Former Georgia statehouse leader Stacey Abrams has been actively lobbying to become presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden's pick for his vice presidential running mate in 2020. According to at least one Biden campaign insider, she shouldn't waste any more time, as she's not considered a serious candidate for the job.
Retired Army General Stanley McChrystal, who once led American forces in Afghanistan, is serving as an advisor to a Democratic Party-supporting political action committee in its plans to disrupt the social-media support for President Donald Trump in the upcoming election. The group is called Defeat Disinfo, and it will use artificial intelligence and network analysis to follow discussion of Trump’s public statements and refute online efforts by Trump supporters to defend what they consider distortions and bias perpetrated by the liberal media, which are largely in league with the Democratic Party.
As President Trump notches a 50-percent approval rating in his handling of the COVID-19 crisis, Gallup reported on Thursday that “most of the variation in Trump’s recent job approval rating is among independents. In [our] current poll, 47% of independents approve of the job he is doing as president, the highest Gallup has measured for [that] group to date.”
Various high-ranking officials at the University of Delaware, which refuses to release the Senate records of Joe Biden that could potentially corroborate the sexual-assault allegations of former staffer Tara Reade, have close personal and financial ties to the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
Friday’s revelation in the Tara Reade-Joe Biden sex-assault story has sent staff members of the recently ended campaign of socialist Bernie Sanders into a rage. But even worse, a top Democrat strategist has said Biden should quit the race. Conservatives can say the media and Democrats don’t take sex assault seriously unless the accused is a Republican. And at least one honest journalist has warned that the story won’t go away.
The national press secretary for the now-suspended Bernie Sanders presidential campaign is openly speculating that the Democrat Party will replace presumptive nominee Joe Biden before the general election in November. Briahna Joy Gray, a journalist and political consultant, bashed Biden and the Democrat leadership in a tweet on Thursday.
Senator Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, announced that he plans to subpoena a consulting firm with ties to Hunter Biden and to Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings in order to review records and determine whether the foreign firm tried to use Hunter Biden to “influence” American policy.
Following the Super Tuesday presidential primaries, it seems likely that former Vice President Joe Biden will become the Democratic Party’s nominee for president in this year’s election. Speculation has grown concerning what a Biden administration might look like. This speculation increased after sources within the Biden campaign gave the news website Axios a list of names the candidate is considering for Cabinet posts and other top positions within his administration.
It now appears that Joe Biden will win the Democratic Party’s nomination to face Donald Trump in November. His only hurdle is Bernie Sanders, the “Extreme Leftist.” Biden is characterized as less radical so perhaps he should be referred to as a mere “Hard Leftist,” a bit less extreme. But the mass media has already attached the label “Moderate“ to the former vice president.
The headline at CNN has it right: “Biden still has a lot of problems as a candidate.” Problem is, the rest of the boilerplate analysis doesn’t tell us much about Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s “problems,” beyond the usual abstract political calculus involving the array of victims groups that compose the Democrat “coalition.”
William Kristol and his band of NeverTrumpers at The Bulwark, an online site, are gleefully celebrating Joe Biden’s Super Tuesday victories over Bernie Sanders. Some of them would even vote for Biden (or China's Xi Jinpeng) over Donald Trump. Undoubtedly, some of them would even vote for Bernie over Trump — except that it would be harder to explain their voting rationale and resume their undeserved positions as “conservative” thought leaders any time in the near future. Cheering for Biden, though, can be played by the neocons as both anti-Trump and anti-Bernie.
After dropping an estimated $700 million into his campaign, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg called it a day on Wednesday morning: “I’ve always believed that defeating Donald Trump starts with uniting behind the candidate with the best shot to do it. After yesterday’s vote, it is clear that candidate is my friend and a great American, Joe Biden.”
Left for politically dead not long ago, ex-vice president Joe Biden has risen like a Phoenix to sweep 10 Super Tuesday states in the race for the Democratic nomination. Erstwhile frontrunner Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) went from the wind at his back to political heart attack, as late-deciding voters made the difference by breaking largely for Biden. Meanwhile, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) had a disastrous night — finishing third in her home state — while billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s similarly poor showing caused him to exit the race.
Not-Exactly-Newsflash: Joe Biden’s in trouble, and not just because he said “gun violence” has killed 150 million Americans since 2007. The man who led the Real Clear Politics polling average for a year and was the odds-on favorite to win the Democratic nomination for president has lost the first three party primaries and looks like he might lose Texas and California on Super Tuesday.
Sometimes a “radical” is someone right 50 years too soon (or too late) — and often a “moderate” is a wrong radical who wants to be thought right by people voting today. The latter is the case with this year’s Democrat candidates, points out commentator Jack Hellner, as he warns of the “phony press trope about all those Democratic ‘moderates.’”
By the end of February, the race for the Democratic nomination may have come down to a choice of one of three white men. Two are well into their 70s, and either would be the oldest president ever inaugurated. The third is a 38-year-old gay in a same-sex marriage who would be our youngest president ever.
For former Vice President Joe Biden it was over even before it got started. At the beginning of the contest at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire, Friday night, Biden was asked by moderator George Stephanopoulos of ABC News what Iowa voters “missed” by giving him, the former front runner, a fourth place finish behind Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg. Biden responded, “They didn’t miss anything.... I took a hit in Iowa and I’ll probably take a hit here.”
Joe Biden may be tops in national Democrat primary polls, but he certainly doesn’t lead the field in policy analysis if a recently resurfaced video is any indication. In it the ex-vice president condemns and calls “irrational” the very policy that allowed a gun-wielding parishioner to thwart Sunday’s Texas church shooting — and join the countless legal firearm owners who foil crimes every year.
Former Vice President Joe Biden says his staff members did not tell him about the possible conflict of interest that involved him and his son, Hunter, vis-à-vis their dealings in Ukraine. But that revelation in Biden’s recent interview with National Public Radio is, in a sense, old news. The warning from a top official at State, ignored by Biden’s staff, went public some time ago.
Andrey Derkach, the Ukrainian parliamentarian who has claimed to have evidence showing that former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden received $900,000 in lobbying fees from Burisma Holdings, announced on Facebook Thursday that he met with President Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani (shown), to discuss the creation of a group to combat corruption in Ukraine.
Joe Biden’s bad luck, received a few days ago when Ukraine expanded its probe into Burisma Holdings, just got worse: U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has opened an investigation into Biden forcing Ukraine to fire its prosecutor general in 2016 as that top lawman looked into corruption at Burisma, which employed Biden’s son, Hunter.
A registered foreign agent for the government of Azerbaijan is in charge of the money for a new Super PAC which looks to assist Democrat candidate Joe Biden in his bid for the presidency in 2020. In its Statement of Organization, the new committee, called Unite the Country, lists Larry Rasky as the treasurer.
Ruling-class Democrats might whisper to each other and even tell the media that Joe Biden can’t defeat President Trump, but it appears that rank-and-file voters don’t agree. Biden’s latest numbers in the Real Clear Politics average of voter polls put him 5.4 points ahead of Elizabeth Warren, a shade less than last week’s six-point lead, but still close to what he polled then.
