New York is of course run by the Party of Science™️. So you know this policy that celebrities are immune to coronavirus is Super Scientific.
The Rich & Famous live by one set of rules, the rest of us by another. The word that comes to mind here is “decadence.” We are a decadent society. The elites have clearly detached themselves from the rest of the country and left the masses in the dust.
“Mayor Lori Lightfoot defended the Chicago Police Department’s ban on protesters being able to demonstrate on the block where she lives, telling reporters Thursday that she and her family at times require heightened security because of threats she receives daily.
Lightfoot refused to elaborate on the specific threats, but said she receives them daily against herself, her wife and her home. Comparisons to how the Police Department has protected previous mayors’ homes, such as Rahm Emanuel’s Ravenswood residence, are unfair because “this is a different time like no other,” Lightfoot told reporters.”
She had her Praetorian Guard stationed in front of her house ensuring her own safety:
Meanwhile she barely lifts a finger as the Magnificent Mile is smashed to pieces and looted.
This is the same limousine liberal mindset of demanding diversity in public schools, then sending their kids to private schools. Exact same thing.
Lori, no one denies you are receiving death threats. No one denies that this is a uniquely dangerous and chaotic period of time in the city.
People don’t have a problem with you taking efforts to protect yourself. We have a problem with you not doing jack-shit to protect everyone else. Instead of protecting only yourself, why don’t you impose law and order on the whole city? “Protesting” isn’t just bad on your block, it’s bad everywhere. We hate it as much as you do.
This is modern “let them eat cake” elite indifference to the masses. She couldn’t care less about all the mayhem and destruction in the city–until it creeps into her neighborhood.
“Bill Clinton is seen enjoying a neck massage from a Jeffrey Epstein victim in never-before-seen photographs obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com. Clinton sits comfortably and laughs as Chauntae Davies, then a 22-year-old massage therapist, rubs her hands into his shoulders.”
Davies, who has claimed she was raped by Epstein after being recruited by Maxwell, said Clinton was a ‘complete gentleman’ on the trip as she described how the encounter occurred.”
Maybe Clinton was a “complete gentleman” to her. But it still doesn’t excuse the fact this guy clearly spent a lot of time with Jeffrey Epstein.
It’s interesting that this photo, which was taken in 2002, surfaced now, during the DNC:
“The pictures are an ill-timed reminder of Clinton’s links to Epstein as the former President, 72, prepares to endorse Joe Biden tonight at the Democratic Convention.”
Ill-timed? Or well-timed?
This had to come from the White House, or someone aligned with the President, no?
“Dozens of new documents related to British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell’s alleged involvement in the Jeffrey Epstein case were released on Thursday night. Included in the release were emails exchanged between Maxwell and Epstein and testimonies by alleged victims, including Virginia Roberts Giuffre. Maxwell is being held in a Brooklyn jail after pleading not guilty to helping Epstein recruit and abuse underage girls from 1994 to 1997.”
The main thing we’re looking at here is the deposition of Virginia Roberts Giuffre.
“Indeed, one name in the unsealed papers was that of a former U.S. president. Giuffre told one attorney that Bill Clinton was a guest during a trip to Epstein’s private isle in the U.S. Virgin Islands and that Epstein joked to her about Clinton being in his pocket.
“You know, I remember asking Jeffrey what’s Bill Clinton doing here [on the island],” Giuffre told the lawyer. According to a transcript of their conversation, Giuffre added that Epstein laughed off her question and said, “Well, he owes me a favor.”
“He never told me what favors they were,” Giuffre said. “I never knew. I didn’t know if he was serious. It was just a joke.”
Joe Biden’s Body is now the presumptive Democratic nominee after winning a handful of primaries last night. Biden won Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi and Idaho. He’s going to lose to Bernie in North Dakota but that’s inconsequential. And the two so close in Washington state, even if Bernie wins the vote count, Biden will still win the same number of delegates as Bernie.
It’s over. Biden is going to be the Democratic nominee. There was a rumor going around on Twitter last night that Bernie was planning to drop out on Wednesday, but his campaign shot that down.
It doesn’t really matter, though. Joe Biden’s Body is going to take this thing.
But before I get to Joe Biden’s Body becoming the presumptive Democratic nominee, let me just mention Bernie Sanders and sum up his campaign in a few words: Bernie Sanders is a pussy.
There’s not much more to it.
Bernie is a pussy.
I apologize for using that word, I know it’s vulgar, but there is no better way to describe Bernie Sanders. That’s what he is.
The man has been wronged by the Dem Party Establishment at every turn since 2015 and yet he still will not stick up for himself.
Last night, Tucker had a segment in which he called Bernie Sanders the “lamest revolutionary ever,” and that’s exactly right. In this clip Tucker runs down all of the reasons why Bernie Sanders is a pussy–although of course Tucker is not allowed to use that word.
You should watch Tucker’s segment in full, but the bottom line is that Bernie Sanders is a pussy.
If Trump were in his shoes (and he will be in a couple months time), Trump would be raising hell. He wouldn’t shut up. He wouldn’t back down. He would not sit there and take it.
“Believe me, folks: Joe Biden should be in a retirement home. They’re calling him Senile Joe. Can you believe that? Bad stuff, folks. You really have to feel bad for this guy, Joe Biden. He can’t even tell you what state he’s in and they’re making him run for President. Did you see the other night he thought his sister was his wife? Unbelievable. He was talking about letting all the little kids rub his hairy legs. Disgusting. Just disgusting. What’s the matter with this guy?”
“So all my rivals dropped out right before Super Tuesday and they’re all going to endorse Biden. They’re trying to rig this election against me. Nasty people. I’ll bet Biden’s people cut a deal with all of them. They don’t want me to win. You know that, right? Well, we’re going to win. We’re going to win big. There’s nothing they can do about it, that I can tell you.”
If Trump were in Bernie’s shoes right now, he’d be going scorched-earth on the Democrat Establishment. Zero punches pulled. He’d be calling out all the dirty tricks even though it’s considered “taboo” to point out that an election that is obviously being rigged, is being rigged. He doesn’t care whose feathers he ruffles, or if he breaks with the “decorum” of Official Washington. In fact, he enjoys doing that stuff. He relishes being the party crasher, the bane of the Establishment’s existence.
Bernie, on the other hand, doesn’t want to fight. When push came to shove, Bernie folded like a cheap suit. He cucked. He sat on his hands while Joe Biden’s Body ran away with the nomination.
Bernie knows he’s sharper than Biden. Bernie knows he could pummel Biden in a debate. Biden has tons of weaknesses that Bernie could’ve exploited. But he didn’t do any of that. He fought with both hands tied behind his back, voluntarily.
He sat there and allowed his clearly undeserving and unfit opponent to run him over. Bernie allowed himself to be humiliated. He allowed himself to be cuckolded by Joe Biden’s Body.
Because of that, Bernie Sanders deserved to lose.
Now, there was certainly more support for Joe Biden than most observers realized. You can say us political junkies were duped into conflating Bernie’s popularity on Twitter with his popularity in real life. This is a valid point. Most Biden voters aren’t on Twitter 24/7, while Bernie’s are everywhere on Twitter. So it was easy to fall into the belief that Bernie was the frontrunner and Biden had no support.
But this primary was about more than just the false reality of Twitter misleading a great many political observers. This was also one of the most blatant oligarchal interventions in an American political race, perhaps ever.
First, you had Pete the Cheat stealing Iowa from Bernie, which turned out to be a fakeout. At the time, I thought the Democratic Establishment had left Biden for dead and thrown its weight behind Buttigieg. But then Buttigieg quickly flamed out. He “won” Iowa thanks to help from that “malfunctioning” vote-counting app, but did nothing after that. Now it seems more like the Democratic Establishment simply wanted to blunt Sanders’ momentum any way they could, and since Biden was polling badly in Iowa, they rigged the race for the next closest non-Bernie candidate, which happened to be Mayor Pete. But once Pete had served his purpose, he was no longer useful to the Dem Party Establishment. So he fizzled out quickly.
And then there was Super Coupsday, where most of the field dropped out the day before and endorsed Biden in an effort to stop Bernie.
This is to say nothing of how badly they rigged it against Bernie in 2016, either. Bernie got screwed big time, twice.
But I still think he could’ve won if he would’ve fought for it–both in 2016 and 2020. Calling out a rigged system may evoke gasps and outrage and finger-wagging from the media, but it’s actually quite popular with voters. Shocking, I know. Had Bernie actually stood up for himself and gone nuclear on the Democratic Party Establishment, he could’ve won this thing–handily, too. But he didn’t. And we all know why.
What we’re witnessing right now is actually quite remarkable: there is no substance at all to the Joe Biden campaign, and yet he’s going to win the Democratic nomination. First it was Fake News, now we have a Fake Candidate.
What’s Biden’s rallying cry, his campaign’s raison d’être? There is none.
Do you know a single one of his policy proposals? Can you name one thing (besides cognitive decline) that is synonymous with Joe Biden 2020 in the way the Wall was for Trump in 2016, or Hope and Change was for Obama in 2008?
When Joe Biden first announced his candidacy in April 2019, he was asked what his campaign’s motto is, and this was his answer:
“In an interview with Robin Roberts of ABC’s Good Morning America, Biden was asked if he had his own motto for his 2020 run.
He said: “Make America moral again. Make America return to the essence of who we are, the dignity of the country, the dignity of people, treating our people with dignity… End this God-awful deliberate division that is being taken in order… separating people to aggrandize his own power.”
What on earth is he talking about? It sounds like he made that up on the spot. It’s incoherent word salad.
On top of this, no one actually believes Joe Biden is the man to “make America moral again.” Since when has anyone ever associated Joe Biden with morality? This is a guy who as Vice President set his crackhead son up with an $83,000 per month no-show job in Ukraine, and then threatened to withhold US military aid money to Ukraine unless the prosecutor investigating his son was fired.
And just yesterday, Biden was caught on video berating a factory worker who asked him a legitimate question about his stated plans to trample the Second Amendment. Biden told the factory worker he was “full of shit,” then commanded the woman next to him to “shush,” and then after some back and forth, asked the factory worker if he wanted to “go outside” with him, meaning fight.
The guy who’s trying to brawl with random American citizens that dare ask him questions he doesn’t like is going to Make America Moral Again?
I went to his official website to try and figure out what the point of Joe Biden’s campaign was, and I didn’t find much. First, I clicked on the “Joe’s Vision” tab, and there you’ll find a whole bunch of policy proposals he didn’t write, that no one will ever read. That section was labeled “Bold Ideas.” Great, but not what we’re looking for. Then there’s some generic campaign boilerplate waxing eloquently about “the idea” of America. Still not what we’re looking for. If you scroll down further, you will find what I would guess are the three main ideas of the Biden campaign. Here they are:
“Rebuild the middle class” (Apparently the Obama Administration didn’t adequately do this. Or he’s trying to claim Trump has destroyed the middle class in four years, which no one believes.)
“Demonstrate respected leadership on the world stage” (Translation: more foreign wars.)
“We’ve got to make sure our democracy includes everyone” (Translation: illegal immigrants voting.)
It’s just vague claptrap. There’s no real core message to his campaign. You cannot sum up the main thing Joe Biden wants to do for America.
Joe’s just running for President, and that’s it. There is nothing for people to sink their teeth into. There is no heart and soul of his campaign.
It’s just him running for President. He’s running for President to become President. That’s it. Trump ran for President in 2016 to Make America Great Again, Joe Biden is running for President in 2020 to become President.
Hillary’s campaign in 2016 was a clear and obvious power grab, but at least she attempted to vaguely make it about “WAMMEN!” and the “glass ceiling” or whatever. At least she made some effort to not make it so obvious that she just wanted power.
With Biden, there’s none of that. It’s just, “I’m Joe Biden and I’m runnin’ for President.”
The only thing I can think of that might give Democrat voters reason to be excited about Joe Biden is Obama nostalgia. Obama is still far and away the most popular Democrat out there, and I guess some Democrat voters view Joe Biden as the closest thing they can get to a third Obama term.
But that’s really all I can think of in terms of the natural allure of Joe Biden’s candidacy.
Outside of the fading memories of Obama, there is nothing there but Joe Biden himself, and Joe Biden is not even really there anymore.
The guy is so far gone mentally he doesn’t even know what day of the week it is half the time, and yet right before Super Tuesday, all of his rivals dutifully dropped out and threw their support behind him.
I don’t think we’ve ever seen such an obviously propped-up candidate for President in U.S. history. Everyone can see that Joe Biden’s campaign isn’t for Joe Biden. He’s not running for President: they’re running him for President.
The Big Club sees Joe Biden as their best shot at retaking the White House, and once Biden gets in, the Big Club will be calling the shots. Completely. Joe Biden will be living in the White House, and that’s about it.
And the VP spot on his ticket will be the most coveted job in Washington.
Does anyone actually see this guy making it to 2025, much less 2029? Is there even a snowball’s chance in hell Joe Biden will be President until the end of this decade, which only began a couple months ago?
The jockeying to get the nod to be Biden’s running mate will be spectacular, because whoever ends up locking it down will, should Biden win in November, have great odds at taking over as President sometime in the next few years.
They may even be calling the shots from Day One of a Biden presidency given how obviously unfit for office Joe currently is.
There will not be one single decision a President Biden’s Body makes that will be his. They’re not going to let him.
And that’s the point I’m trying to make here: there has never been a more obvious figurehead candidate than Joe Biden in 2020. Never. All the reasons we regular people look at him and think, “there’s no way this guy has the mental capacity to be President” are the same reasons the Big Club threw its support behind him.
“But Joe Biden doesn’t even really have a campaign platform at all!”
Yeah, that’s the point.
Obama was an obvious figurehead, but at least he could play the part. At least Obama could fool a lot of Americans into believing he was actually his own man and calling all the shots.
Joe Biden can’t even play the part. It is so obvious what they’re doing running him for President.
So I think we should take a moment and recognize this watershed moment in American politics for what it is: today was the moment the Big Club stopped trying to hide it. In the past, they put up figurehead candidates for President, and then people whose names you don’t know and who you didn’t vote for would call the shots behind the scenes.
With a clearly-gone Joe Biden becoming the presumptive Democratic nominee today, they’re not even trying to pretend he’s an actual, legitimate candidate. They haven’t even given us a fake slogan to believe in, or a signature policy proposal we can vainly hope will improve our lives. Joe Biden is nothing more than a vehicle for the Big Club to regain power.
The whole point of Joe Biden’s campaign is simply to get Trump out of office and return power to the exiled Establishment. Biden recently cut an ad that closed with him literally saying “I will not let this man [Trump] be reelected president of the United States of America.” They view Trump as the Usurper and Biden as the restoration of the old globalist monarchy. If Biden wins this fall, the history books will refer to the years 2017-2021 as the interregnum, a brief disturbance of the status quo that was quickly rectified.
Joe Biden isn’t just the Big Club’s Candidate–he is the Big Club. He is its stand-in. He’s not just going to do their bidding if he’s elected; they will do it directly.
