Watch as Joe Biden Loses His Crap and Yells at Elizabeth Warren While Trying to Take Credit for Creating an Illegal Agency

I think the general consensus is Joe Biden basically self-immolated last night. Instead of his experience bringing gravitas to the stage, he came off as a whiny, bitter, me-too-er; as a guy who has already had all the good ideas he’s ever going to have and has to continually remind the audience of how smart and on-the-ball he used to be and if he had to make up stuff to be relevant, well, that’s the just the cost of doing business. This exchange with Elizabeth Warren will probably go down as one of the most cringeworthy moments in any debate that didn’t involved Candy Crowley and Mitt Romney.

The set up is Anderson Cooper asking, “…And so the question is, who is best prepared? We all have good ideas. The question is, who is going to be able to get it done? How can you get it done? And I’m not suggesting they can’t, but I’m suggesting that that’s what we should look at. And part of that requires you not being vague. Tell people what it’s going to cost, how you’re going to do it, and why you’re going to do it. That’s the way to get it done. Presidents are supposed to be able to persuade.”

I’m giving you the full transcript below, the parts with the strike-through have been cut from the video clip. I wanted to include them to show the full exchange.

WARREN: So you started this question with how you got something done. You know, following the financial crash of 2008, I had an idea for a consumer agency that would keep giant banks from cheating people. And all of the Washington insiders and strategic geniuses said, don’t even try, because you will never get it passed.

And sure enough, the big banks fought us. The Republicans fought us. Some of the Democrats fought us. But we got that agency passed into law. It has now forced big banks to return more than $12 billion directly to people they cheated.

I served in the Obama administration. I know what we can do by executive authority, and I will use it. In Congress, on the first day, I will pass my anti-corruption bill, which will beat back the influence of money…

COOPER: Thank you, Senator.

WARREN: … and repeal the filibuster. And the third, we want to get something done in America, we have to get out there and fight…

COOPER: Thank you, Senator.

WARREN: … for the things that touch people’s lives.

COOPER: Mayor…

BIDEN: I agree. Let me — she referenced me. I agreed with the great job she did, and I went on the floor and got you votes. I got votes for that bill. I convinced people to vote for it. So let’s get those things straight, too.

COOPER: Senator Warren, do you want to respond?

(APPLAUSE)

WARREN: I am deeply grateful to President Obama, who fought so hard to make sure that agency was passed into law, and I am deeply grateful to every single person who fought for it and who helped pass it into law. But understand…

BIDEN: You did a hell of a job in your job.

WARREN: Thank you.

You really have to watch the video to appreciate the degree to which Joe Biden loses his sh** over credit for passing a bill that establishes an agency that has been declared an unconstitutional monstrosity. What is significant here is that for the first time in his career, Biden was called out by the liberal media for his heroically athletic fantasy world. Apparently, Biden was lukewarm to the idea and is only now coming to the realization that the Democrat base is so far left that he’d better embrace Marxism if he’s to survive.

None of this bodes well for Biden. His strategy was that used by Jeb Bush–inevitability and electability. Now it is obvious that he’s neither.

We have reached a stage where mental illness and wokeness have combined to create a perfect storm of utterly stupid behavior. The mental illness here is the wave of transgenderism that has gone from being nuts to being fashionable within the lifecycle of a fruit fly. The wokeness part of it is the notion that you can demand other people use whatever pronouns you wish to describe you. The perfect storm of stupid behavior hit Fredo Cuomo last night like a ballpeen hammer on the forehead.

At the Democrat forum on exotic sexual proclivities, Kamala Harris was interviewed by Fredo about her views on adultery…sorry, that was a joke…about her policies in regards to the alphabet folks should the nation have the misfortune to elect her as president. This is her intro:

Actually, that’s pretty funny. You’ve heard the saying that the cop never thinks it is as funny as you do? Well,the people who said that had never encountered angry alphabet people.

[Raises hand]

[uhhhh…yeah they are]

Instead of powering through it with a ‘lighten up, Francis’ moment–it isn’t like CNN’s ratings could be hurt and Cuomo’s job wouldn’t be in jeopardy due to his family name–Cuomo acted just like Fredo after Mo Greene whipped his a**.

This is both sad and pathetic. But it is a metophor for the current age and I suppose we just have to deal with it.

Biden Campaign Has a Hissy Fit as Even the Left Wing Media (Except CNN) Can No Longer Ignore the Corruption

In a way you have to feel sorry for Joe Biden. In best Politburo fashion, which is the only way the Democrat Party works, he has served in the fields and worked his way to the top of the hierarchy. Like a good soldier, he accepted his orders and stood aside in 2016, despite being a much stronger candidate, for the “historic” candidacy of a corrupt, unlikable and unaccomplished (unless we want to call being married to Bill Clinton an accomplishment) tour director for Fort Marcy Park (just joking, you leftwing goobers, lighten up), Hillary Clinton.

Now, in this last chance to grasp the brass ring of the presidency, QuidProJoe finds himself enveloped in a miasma of outright corruption and very corrupt looking activities which also largely involve his coke-snorting, philandering son, Hunter Biden. Ordinarily, we can expect the leftwing media to run interference for Democrat candidates on just about everything, see, for instance, how the media covered manifest and blatant corruption that characterized the Clinton Foundation. So one can excuse Biden for being butthurt when the New York Times ran this op-ed yesterday: What Hunter Biden Did Was Legal — And That’s the Problem

In December 2013, Joe and Hunter Biden flew aboard Air Force Two to China; less than two weeks after the trip, Hunter’s firm, Rosemont Seneca Partners, which he founded with two other businessmen in June 2013, finalized a deal to open a fund, BHR Partners, whose largest shareholder is the government-run Bank of China, even though he had scant background in private equity. (Representatives of the fund claim that the timing of the deal and the Bidens’ trip to China was coincidental.) Thus far, the firm has invested about $2.1 billion, according to its website.

In trying to disprove a link between the father’s powerful position and the son’s surprising success, Hunter Biden’s lawyers claim he did not take an equity stake in BHR Partners until after Joe Biden left office. Hunter, whose company, according to its financial records, held an equity stake in the fund, took a board seat when it was founded, in December 2013. At the same time, his business partner, Devon Archer, was vice chairman.

With the Russian invasion of Crimea in 2014, Joe Biden became point person in Ukraine as well. That same year, Hunter Biden landed a board position with the Ukrainian energy giant Burisma Holdings. Despite having no background in energy or Ukraine, the vice president’s son was paid as much as $50,000 a month, according to financial records. (He left the board in early 2019.)

To say the Biden campaign went batsh** crazy is to indulge in massive understatement.

Tater appears to have had an orgasm reading it:

Biden campaign blasts NYT in letter to Dean Baquet

In a Wednesday evening letter addressed to Dean Baquet, the Biden campaign excoriated The New York Times for its recent coverage of Joe Biden, his son Hunter Biden, and Ukraine. The letter was written by deputy campaign manager and comms director Kate Bedingfield. She expressed extreme displeasure with how The Times has covered the debunked notion Biden abused his office to benefit his son.

Bedingfield wrote that The Times, which published a widely panned story in May by reporter Ken Vogel and then-freelancer Iuliia Mendel, “had an outsized hand in the spread” of the “baseless conspiracy theory.”

In Bedingfield’s words, “What was especially troubling about the Times’s active participation in this smear campaign is that prior to its reporting on the subject by Ken Vogel, this conspiracy had been relegated to the likes of Breitbart, Russian propaganda, and another conspiracy theorist, regular Hannity guest John Solomon.”

Quick glossary:

  • “widely panned” means truthful but didn’t fit the Democrat narrative.
  • “debunked” means they can’t answer the charges so all they can do is claim they don’t exist.
  • “conspiracy theorist” is anyone who doesn’t agree with the Democrat narrative…like the people who claimed from the beginning that the Russia Hoax was…well…a hoax.

Biden is pulling the old coaching ploy of screaming at the ref on this play in hopes that he will get a better call on the next one. It won’t work. The corruption of Joe Biden’s influence peddling to assist and protect his son is simply too blatant and too easy to understand. More is going to trickle out and the New York Times will either have to take the lead in breaking those stories or begrudgingly following other outlets as they do. But the story is going to come out. The second reason that it won’t work is that when you have a newspaper that will hire a member of its editorial board who boasted about she hates men and white people, you should be bright enough to figure out that a septuagenarian, melanin-challenged, penis-possessing (making an assumption here, I have no personal or second hand knowledge that this is the case) candidate like Biden is not going to get treated all that well. The New York Times’s reporting staff is firmly in the bag for Elizabeth Warren and any story that hurts Biden helps her.

New fundraising numbers have been posted by the Democrat primary candidates and they show some interesting shifts in the field.

Decrepit and bedridden Bernie Sanders led the pack with $25.3 million. Enough to buy a nice mausoleum.
Elizabeth Warren was second with $24.6 million.
Pete Buttigieg raised $19.1 million.
Joe Biden pulled in $15.2 million.
Kamala Harris finished the Third Quarter with $11.6 million.

If you ignore the silliness of Yang and Williamson, the real story is that Joe Biden is in a death spiral. His fundraising is down by 30%. He’s slipping in the polls, especially Iowa and New Hampshire. His South Carolina “firewall” looks very flimsy. The news swirling around about Hunter Biden’s financial shenanigans is not going to get better and you can bet President Trump is not going to let up so long as the Ukraine phone call bullsh** is being propped up as grounds for impeachment. Beyond that, Biden’s campaign staff is as sclerotic as Biden so by the time it responds to Charge A we’ve already moved on to Charge F (see my post Donald Trump, Impeachment, And John Boyd’s OODA Loop). Beyond the slowness of his campaign’s reaction time, Biden is not a fighter. He’s simply not temperamentally suited to engaging in the bare-knuckle brawl that Trump seems to relish as is shown by his response to the corruption allegations against his son. You’ll also notice that Biden has been abandoned by his fellow Democrats and is left to fight this out with just the help of his media friends and fluffers.

As a footnote, Harris is also toast…I find this sort of shocking as I would have bet good money that she’d be one of the top three candidates going into Iowa.

Everything is going Warren’s way. Biden is fading. Harris and Buttigieg have been revealed to be insubstantial lightweights. Bernie Sanders is unlikely to go back on the trail. Right now, if you were forced to make a prediction you’d say that she is the nominee. We’ll see how she does when President Trump and his team drop the twitching, tattered corpse of Joe Biden’s campaign and turn their gimlet eyes of Pocahontas.

Joe Biden Is Desperately Trying to Shake the Stench of Corruption and He’s Not Doing a Very Good Job

It’s been a tough week for Joe Biden. What started out as a cheap, premeditated political hit on President Trump has morphed into a situation that may very well doom Biden’s bid for the Democrat nomination. Joe Biden, to all appearances, bullied a nation in need of US aid into firing a prosecutor who was nipping at the heels of his son, Hunter Biden. The central problem is that he explanation is tortured and impossible to credit, absent large quantities of alcohol or a lobotomy. On the other hand, the allegation is as old as mankind. A powerful man has a shiftless, grifting, ne’er-do-well son who he dotes on and protects. The son profits. The father risks his own reputation to keep the favored offspring out of trouble. The story rarely ends well.

A lot of people on the left really aren’t bright enough to understand the antipathy the average American feels about powerful people putting their nitwit gits in the way of wealth and keeping them out of prison when anyone else would be doing hard time. Nate Silver is a great example.

‘Splain to me exactly what the fundraising appeal is. Something like this?

“Hi, I’m Joe Biden. I helped my cokehead, philandering son get a $1.5 billion investment from Communist China. I got him a seat on the board of directors of a company in an industry he knows nothing about in a country whose language he does not speak that earned him $600,000 per year. And when those bastards threatened to investigate him, I gave them six hours to fire the whole bunch. And the did. That’s because, just like you, I believe in family. So please send me money so I can continue to do God’s work in helping my family.”

It seems that Joe Biden is heeding that advice, he vows to make Hunter Biden a part of his campaign

“I think it’s the beginning not the end,” Biden said about what he anticipates will be more attacks against his family.

“I’m also confident the American people know me, and they know my son.”

Biden said his son will be a visible part of the campaign.

“He’s a fine man. He’s been through hell.”

It may be the only solution that he has. I suppose Biden loyalists (whatever the hell they look like because every sane person knows that Biden’s only selling points are a) electability and b) “it’s my turn”) will get all weepy over Biden sticking up for his boy but every time he walks on stage with Hunter Biden there, the only thought in the mind of most folks will be his corruption and lack of moral character.

There Is Absolutely Nothing Suspicious and Criminal-Like About Hunter Biden’s Ukrainian Director’s Salary

One of the central elements in the ongoing kerfuffle about President Trump’s conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine is over the investigation into Hunter Biden’s mysterious appointment as a member of the board of directors of Ukraine’s largest private natural gas company, Burisma. While Joe Biden was vice-president and self-described “point person” for the Obama administration on Ukraine, one of his portfolios was trying to convince the Ukrainians to improve transparency in their economy and suppress corruption. To that end, Burisma hired Hunter Biden who, by the way, had zero experience in much of anything other than grifting off the family name and keeping hookers gainfully employed, as a member of its board of directors. The salary Biden fils received has been variously reported as $50,000 or $80,000 per month.

To be charitable, let’s put aside our disbelief and pretend that Hunter Biden was hired because of his totally mad business skills and just ignore the facts and circumstances surrounding Joe Biden’s demand that a Ukrainian prosecutor who may have targeted his son be fired. A quick test of the legitmacy of Hunter Biden’s salary is its comparability to other, similarly situated companies. It is estimated that Burisma’s earnings are about $400 million annually.

There is a great reference table.

Burisma is not quite 1/4 the size of the smallest company on this list. The group of smallest companies pays between $285-$330,000 per year for a non-employee director. Hunter Biden was paid $600,000 (at least) for being a board member of a company whose language he did not speak, whose home country he’d never lived in, and which was in an industry about which Hunter Biden was pig-ignorant.

ADDENDUM.

An alert Twitter follower notes that in most other cases, non-employee directors were paid in a combination of cash and stock, often as much as 60% stock. Biden was paid in 100% cash.

You can pretend, if you want, that there was a purpose in hiring Hunter Biden beyond currying favor with his father. You can pretend, as did John Kerry’s State Department, that there was no conflict of interest or quid pro quo involved that involved pressure being removed from Ukraine in return for employing Joe Biden’s kid. You can pretend that Joe Bidens’ interest in firing that prosecutor was some high minded expression of unity with the EU. Just don’t expect anyone else to go along with that sick fantasy.

I really doubt you’re going to enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing this headline.

This is the story. A 24-year-old ex-Marine who is a bodybuilder is going to claim he was banging Elizabeth Warren for “several months.” I’m assuming he is deaf-blind and has learned how to suppress the gag reflex.

All of this is totally tongue-in-cheek…the face cheek not the other cheek, ugh, you people appall me at times…because Jack Burkman and Jacob Wohl are grifters and fraudsters (Wohl in currently under federal indictment for securities fraud). The were the two brainiacs behind the press conference that accused Robert Mueller of sexual harassment only to have the accuser not show and they masterminded the sexual assault allegation against Pete Buttigieg that ended when the accuser confessed he was being paid.

This is the kind of cheap chickensh** that you’d expect from a CNN employee. What is unclear is what they think they are accomplishing with this nonsense.

Joe Biden’s Campaign Has the Forward Trajectory of a Bag of Jell-O

Westlake Legal Group bidendummy-620x388 Joe Biden’s Campaign Has the Forward Trajectory of a Bag of Jell-O south carolina Politics New Hampshire Joe Biden Iowa Front Page Stories Florida Featured Story elections democrats Allow Media Exception 2020 Democrat Primary

I don’t know why anyone ever thought Joe Biden would win. On a good day, when he was sniffing the hair of random women, or telling racist jokes, or lying about his family history, or shaking down banks for large loans he would never have to repay, the best you could say about Joe Biden was that he was inoffensive and could work a small group of elderly voters  in a workmanlike manner. Add to that his age and obvious cognitive impairment, and what you have left is the sad shell of a Democrat apparatchik whose appeal to the Democrat base is somewhere between “it’s my turn” and “I’m not batsh** crazy like those other guys” and to the general electorate is “I’m not Donald Trump.”

While the RCP average (which, let’s be honest, is a lot like averaging apples and oranges and declaring the result to be kumquats) still shows Biden with a 7 point lead, that number is both a) meaningless (as there is no national primary) and b) deceptive. Over the past three weeks we’ve seen a major shift in the landscape with Elizabeth Warren pulling even with Biden.

Internal polling by Biden’s own campaign shows him in a freefall:

With more than four months until Iowa’s Feb. 3 caucus, there is plenty of time for the dynamics of the race to change. But there’s also cause for some alarm for Biden. In New Hampshire, Tyson’s just-completed 600-likely voter poll shows Warren with 18 percent of the vote and Biden 15 percent in an open-ended ballot question. It’s a dramatic change from his last poll, with Biden dropping 18 points while Warren gained 7 — a 25-point shift.

Biden’s level of support in South Carolina makes it his firewall state, but even in South Carolina there are troubling signs of erosion. While he remains on top, among black voters, who are more than 60 percent of the Democratic electorate, Biden has plummeted 19 points in Tyson’s polls. That’s a potential leading indicator of the problems he could face after South Carolina’s Feb. 29 primary when many of the minority-heavy Southeastern states — as well as Texas and California — beginning voting on Super Tuesday, March 3, and thereafter.

Florida, where about 28 percent of the Democratic primary electorate is black, votes March 17. Biden is in first there with 24 percent of the Democratic vote, losing 15 points since May in Tyson’s polls. Warren moved into second with 11 percent, a 6-point increase while Sanders is in third with 5 percent, an 11-point loss since before the first candidate debate.

The percentage of Democratic voters who were undecided also shot up by double-digits in polls of the state.

In Iowa, Warren has pulled ahead of Joe Biden — marginally — for the first time, according to the latest Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom poll released Saturday. Pollster J. Ann Selzer’s highly regarded survey of caucus-goers showed Warren was benefiting from an enthusiasm gap — 32 percent said they’re “extremely enthusiastic” about caucusing for the Massachusetts senator, compared with 22 percent those who support the former vice president.

My contention was, and is, that the Ukraine silliness is going to mortally wound Biden because no matter how much the left and NeverTrump lecture people on how all the Euros wanted the Ukrainian prosecutor fired because he is corrupt no one really believes that while everyone understands Joe Biden using his clout to protect his son. And so long as President Trump continues to hammer on that subject, the narrative will stick to Biden and his core quality that would lead anyone to vote for him–electability–becomes more and more tenuous.

The New York Times reports that Biden’s supporters are running scared and are organizing a Super PAC to staunch the bleeding:

Allies of Joseph R. Biden Jr., concerned about his slipping poll numbers in the Democratic presidential primary and an onslaught of attacks from President Trump, are weighing whether to mobilize a super PAC supporting Mr. Biden and have held conversations with wealthy donors to gauge their interest in contributing money.

I can save you the trouble. Zero. None. Zilch. Nada. Because that isn’t how any of this works. Biden doesn’t have a massively engaged fan base. He can’t pack arenas for his stump speeches. He was the comfort candidate in the beginning and now he’s dying and it is only going to get worse. No one opens their checkbooks to the kind of donation that is needed to make a difference in a campaign when the candidate is losing momentum and doesn’t seem to understand why the hell he’s even running beyond providing more opportunities for Hunter Biden to grift.

At the bottom of that NYT piece was this rather ominous statement:

The next round of fund-raising reports, due after the end of the month, will also reveal whether Mr. Biden is still in a strong financial position relative to his nearest competitors. In the last quarter, Mr. Biden raised the second-most money of any candidate, trailing only Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind. But he finished June with less money in the bank than Mr. Buttigieg, Ms. Warren, Mr. Sanders and Senator Kamala Harris of California.

And this broke earlier in the day.

If Joe Biden loses Iowa and New Hampshire, he can hope all he wants for a South Carolina win but if it is anything less than a blowout, the momentum will be seen to be with Warren. And unless fundraising picks up, Biden won’t be around for South Carolina.

Joe Biden Is Acting Like a Man Who Knows the Fork Has Been Stuck in Him

Joe Biden was out in Iowa yesterday and we have an outtake from one of his news appearances that is really a metaphor for the situation in which Biden finds himself:

In that clip we have:

Biden: Well, that’s up for them to decide.

Reporter: “Why should people want to make a change?”

Biden: “Well that’s up to them to decide.”

Reporter: Well make your case?”

Biden: “I’m not going to.”

If Joe Biden though Hillary’s preferred campaign slogan of “because it’s her turn” was going to work for him he’s finding out he was wrong. He’s showing more and more signs of a man who knows that his hope of becoming the nominee based on the strategy of “I’m not batsh** crazy like the rest of them” isn’t going to sell to a Democrat primary electorate that is damned close to being clinically batsh** crazy.

On the merits, Biden is a horrible candidate. The stench of corruption has wafted about him for thirty or more years with large, unexplained and unsecured loans from major banks headquartered in Delaware that seemed to have no relationship to Biden’s salary. Hunter Biden’s coke-fueled rise to prominence, etc. This is helpfully provided by the RNC:

IN 2016, JOE BIDEN PRESSURED UKRAINE TO FIRE A PROSECUTOR GENERAL WHO WAS INVESTIGATING BURISMA HOLDINGS, A FIRM WHICH HAD PAID HUNTER BIDEN’S ROSEMONT CAPITAL $3.4 MILLION FOR REPRESENTATION  

From 2014 to 2015, Hunter Biden and his business partners were paid $3.4 million to represent Burisma Holdings as part of an effort to have “well-connected Democrats” defend the company from U.S. and Ukrainian investigations.

The New York Times reported that, in 2016, Vice President Biden had sought for and succeeded in ousting a Ukrainian Prosecutor General that had been investigating Hunter Biden’s client Burisma.

IN 2009, HUNTER BIDEN PIGGYBACKED OFF OF HIS FATHER’S DIPLOMATIC TRIPS TO OBTAIN ACCESS TO FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS AND IN PARTICULAR CHINA

Connected by a strong relationship between their dads, Hunter Biden and Christopher Heinz, the son of John Kerry, created Rosemont Capital in June 2009

Rather than occupy an office in New York City, Rosemont chose to operate out of the political hub of Washington D.C., just miles from their fathers’ offices.

Less than a year after opening, Rosemont Capital secured access to multiple foreign leaders including access to China “at the highest levels.”

From 2011 to 2013, multiple foreign business meetings drew public scrutiny from outsiders including one that took place just hours after “Hunter Biden’s father, the Vice President, met with Chinese President Hu in Washington.”

Rosemont Capital and Hunter Biden drew public scrutiny for piggybacking off of Joe Biden’s diplomatic trips to hold business meetings including flying on Air Force Two during Biden’s Asia pivot ventures.

JOE BIDEN AND HIS SON HUNTER HAVE A TANGLED HISTORY WITH THE BANKING COMPANY MBNA FULL OF SWAMPY DEALINGS AND APPARENT QUID PRO QUO

In 1996, shortly after a top executive at MBNA bank bought a house from his father Joe Biden, Hunter Biden was hired by the company to a six-figure position.

While Biden was a Senator, Hunter Biden’s partners secured $25 million in federal earmarks for the University of Delaware and received firm fees totaling $1.5 million for its work on behalf of the school.

Additionally, records show that Senator Obama also sought over $3.4 million in earmarks for clients that Hunter Biden represented.

JOE BIDEN’S FAMILY MEMBERS, JAMES AND FRANK HAVE MADE A PRACTICE OF USING JOE’S NAME IN CONTROVERSIAL BUSINESS DEALINGS

Joe Biden’s brother, Frank Biden, used the Biden name to underwrite his Mavericks in Education project which was ultimately deemed a failure .

In 2010, James Biden was brought on to Hill International, a firm tasked with building low cost housing in Iraq, with the firm saying the Biden last name helped him get in the door.

The far left, or, rather the center of the Democrat base, is conceding that Biden isn’t the right guy for 2020 in record, temperament, genitalia, melanin, or sexual proclivity:

It is not his age but his history that bedevils Biden, and not style but substance that weighs on his candidacy. Biden got the big things wrong repeatedly over the last 40 years. In what he has since called a “big mistake,” he championed the infamous 1994 crime bill that contributed to the unconscionable mass incarceration that particularly ravaged the African American community. As Senate Judiciary Committee chairman, he left Anita Hill to fend for herself during the Clarence Thomas hearings. He defended President Bill Clinton’s repeal of Aid to Mothers of Dependent Children. He consistently backed pro-corporate trade treaties — from the North American Free Trade Agreement to letting China into the World Trade Organization — that savaged America’s manufacturing workers. He voted for the invasion of Iraq, surely the greatest foreign policy debacle since Vietnam. (He now claims he was duped by then-President George W. Bush.) And he was all in for Wall Street deregulation that helped lead to the worst recession since the Great Depression, then served in the administration that bailed out the banks, put no major banker in jail for what the FBI called an epidemic of fraud and left homeowners adrift.

For months, pundits have been warning about the Democratic candidates going too far to the left — embracing bolder reforms and a bolder, more aggressive agenda. Greenberg’s book [she’s referring to Democrat pollster Stanley Greenberg’s GOP RIP: How the New America is Dooming Republicans] is a necessary corrective, demonstrating that Trump’s own tea party extremism is forging a powerful majority coalition intent of ousting him from office and removing those standing in the way of addressing the challenges this country faces. Greenberg implies virtually any of the leading Democratic contenders can beat Trump and beat him badly. Ironically, the weakest of these might well be Biden, burdened with defending a series of votes and positions that have not worked for most Americans. Democrats win big if they nominate a candidate credible as an agent of change, willing to take an economy rigged by the few. Biden is about to discover that once they take a good look, Democrats will find it hard to see him in that role.

Biden is now finding out that not only is the Democrat party, at large, unwilling to defend him in the current non-scandal concerning Ukraine, they are actually quite happy to use those events to take Biden out and clear the deck for their favorite: Elizabeth Warren.

The clear message in the video clip is that Biden knows he’s finished and is finding it hard to pretend that he even cares. As Warren passes Biden in recent polls (here | here) on wonders how a man who can’t make a case for his own candidacy is going to convince Democrat caucus voters to go with him…and will he even hang around to find out?

Joe Biden Says Male Prisoners Should Be Allowed to Demand Access to Female Prisons, This Is a Dangerously Stupid Idea

On Friday night, Joe Biden was at LGBTQIA+ (add more letters, numbers and special characters as needed) Forum in Iowa. He spent some time trying to explain away his previously held, and imminently logical, positions on homosexual marriage and homosexuals in the military and condescend just a bit to organizers. No word if any arms were squeezed or hair sniffed. But there was one interesting segment which is not going to get the attention that it should.

…yes, and by the way, in prison, in prison the determination should be that your sexual identity is defined by what you say it is not what in fact the prison says it is. In that case, you should be entitled, also, to Ob-Gyn…anyway…you didn’t ask that question…

The best you can say about this is that it is a shameless pander to a fringe element of a fringe element. The worst you can say is that Biden actually believes this and that would make him dangerously stupid.

This is not merely a guest. We actually have a test case of what happens when a prison system adopts this policy. Naturally, it comes from a nation that has thrown away all pretensions of being serious, Great Britain.

David Thompson was a sexual predator with a nearly two decade history of offenses.

White, formerly known as David Thompson, had a history of sexually offending which stretched back to 1989 when he indecently exposed himself to a nine year old boy near a children’s playground.

In 2001 he sexually assaulted and committed gross indecency on a 12 year old boy in Leeds, and two years later raped a pregnant woman after spiking her soft drink with vodka.

He also committed multiple rapes of a 23 year old woman before changing his gender and demanding to be known as Karen.

Britain being Britain, he’d largely skated on these offenses. Around 2014 he moved into a public housing project and demanded to be known as “Karen White.” Again, naturally, everyone went along with him. In 2017, he was arrested for “grievous bodily harm, burglary, multiple rapes and other sexual offences against women” and held without bond. While he was being held, he made his claim of being a woman and the gutless bureaucracy, rather than offend his delicate sensibilities, moved him to a women’s prison. What the f*** ever could go wrong? Glad you asked that:

After initially being charged with the prison sex attacks, White had told the court she could not be guilty because she was not attracted to women and also suffered from erectile dysfunction.

But at a previous hearing, prosecutor, Charlotte Dangerfield told Leeds Magistrates’ Court that she had carried out the first offence within days of arriving at the prison.

The prosecutor said White had struck up a relationship with a fellow inmate which had quickly become inappropriate.

She explained: “The defendant would stand very close to her, touch her arm and wink at her. Her penis was erect and sticking out of the top of her trousers.”

On September 26 last year White approached another inmate. Miss Dangerfield said: “She made inappropriate comments about oral sex, which made the complainant feel sick.

“She took hold of the complainant’s hand and put it on the defendant’s left breast – she could feel her padded bra.”

On a third occasion on 5 October White again made inappropriate comments about oral sex to another prisoner.

“She gave her a bear hug and the defendant pushed her hips towards her with such force that the complainant could feel his penis,” said Miss Dangerfield.

Thompson drew a life sentence for his crimes along with his brief reign of terror at the women’s prison…he has to serve 9 1/2 years before he’s eligible for parole.

I’ll just state upfront that my personal view is that transgenderism is mostly a sexual perversion drafting in the slipstream of an extremely rare yet trendy mental disorder. For every one adult suffering from some kind of definable confusion about their own gender, there are a dozen who will demand to have their balls waxed or insist on playing on girls’s athletic teams or using women’s bathrooms. That society has allowed this to take root is a lasting shame to Western Civilization…or the mangy, scrofulous remnant of that once magnificent edifice that dominates today. It is one thing to go along with this madness in day-to-day life, it is another thing entirely to let the felons set the condition of their incarceration. Prisons are not there for the self-actualization of felons. Their feelings are not the objective, the objective is them a) completing their sentence without b) killing or injuring staff or other inmates. That Biden can’t grasp that elementary concept shows he’s more unsuited for the Presidency than Trump on his worst day.
