Biden Comes Out Swinging Against Second Amendment Weeks Ahead of Iowa Caucuses

Joe Biden’s thoughts on gun rights doesn’t jibe with his plan to steal moderate midwestern votes from Donald Trump.

Published

The time to make an impression on the American electorate is dwindling for the 2020 Democratic field, with the ever-important Iowa caucus just over one month away.

For the Democrats, there are several gambles to make still.  Each candidate will likely choose an issue, maybe two, to stake their claim on.  This not only creates a sense of identity that the electorate can easily remember, but it allows these candidates to steer the debate dialogue to the issues that they themselves have carved out in their own name.

For Bernie Sanders, it has always been income inequality.  Liz Warren isn’t straying too far from that path either, adding in a focus on healthcare costs.  Andrew Yang is the guy who wants to give you $1,000 a month just for the heck of it, and Amy Klobuchar is simply the only moderate female in the bunch.

Joe Biden has long run on the simple fact that he may very well be able to steal some support away from Donald Trump in moderate municipalities, but appears to be adding a new focus on gun rights in the weeks preceding Iowa.

This will likely be a hard sell among the very voters that Biden is attempting to coax away from Trump, as the Second Amendment has long been an issue where opinions are formed early and don’t often shift.

Joe Biden Makes Wild Prediction About 2020 Democratic Convention

And what sort of wild ideas will this conjure among Bernie Sanders’ supporters?

Published

on

Believe it or not, there is still a 2020 presidential race happening, just below the surface of this smothering coronavirus monopoly on headlines.

As one would imagine, the race itself has been pretty quiet.  There are no physical rallies to attend or report on, given that the very nature of a rally is the anthesis to social distancing.  President Trump is getting his campaign messages across during his daily virus task force briefings.  He certainly isn’t hurting for exposure any way.

On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders has all but extinguished his campaign.  He is using his time and resources to spread information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic instead, effectively sealing Joe Biden’s reputation as the presumptive nominee.

But this virus crisis is far from over, and Sanders doesn’t plan on stepping aside anytime soon.  That’s why Joe Biden thinks that a drastic move may be coming from the DNC.

Former Vice President Joe Biden thinks that the date of the Democratic National Convention will be pushed back a month to August, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I doubt whether the Democratic Convention is going to be able to be held in mid-July, early July. I think it’s going to have to move into August,” the all-but-certain Democratic presidential nominee said Wednesday night in an interview with Jimmy Fallon on NBC’s “The Tonight Show.”

Biden pointed out that “even then, the Republican and Democratic Convention, we’re going to have to … we just have to be prepared for the alternative and the alternative.”

Supporters of Bernie Sanders will undoubtedly find some vast conspiracy hidden within this possible plan, further dividing the Democratic Party at a very crucial time in the election cycle.

Joe Biden Using Edited Podcasts to Hide His Worrisome Mental Lapses

This is getting to be a bit desperate, don’t you think?

Published

on

The Democratic Party is still trying to convince the nation that former Vice President Joe Biden is the chosen one, for some reason or another.

Never mind the fact that the most vocal demographics within the party itself are that of the younger generations who simply despise Biden and all that he stands for.  Not only is he an establishment figure if there ever was one, but he is now facing credible accusations of sexual assault from a former female staffer – something that certainly isn’t going to play well a great many liberal voters.

Then, to top it all off, Biden has been a mishap machine over the course of recent weeks, issuing gaffe after embarrassing gaffe, and throwing temper tantrums when confronted by town hall attendees, (back before the virus when we could have several dozen people in a room together).  The frequency of these blunders has become so alarming that Twitter has been filling with memes claiming the Biden is suffering from dementia.

Now, in an effort to conceal these linguistic lurches, Biden’s campaign team is employing a new tactic:  Prerecorded podcasts that allow for multiple takes and audio editing.

John Nolte over at Breitbart breaks it down rather succinctly, if not a bit dramatically:

So now we have been gifted with Joe’s “Here’s the Deal” podcasts, and it can be no accident that Joe’s retreated into the safety of a podcast; the safety of a platform where video of Joe’s hilariously disturbing (I’m so bad) brain freezes cannot go viral because there is no video; the safety of a format where Joe’s hilariously disturbing (I’m going to Hell) brain freezes can now be edited out because he’s hiding behind a platform that’s edited before it’s released; the safety of a format where we cannot see if Joe is reading a teleprompter or script.

Nevertheless, he still slurs and sounds exhausted.

Worse still, Hunter’s Dad does take “If you were president” questions from “real people” during the podcast, but the questions are pre-screened and recorded, which allows Joe to prepare for them.

Of course, much of the anti-Biden bickering could be coming from the depths of the Bernie Bros’ playoff, as they continue to tear the Democratic Party in two.

Biden Operative Accused of Stealing $1 Million from Union

A close ally of Joe Biden is accused of stealing $1 million from a union pension fund.

Published

on

A close ally of Joe Biden is accused of stealing $1 million from a union pension fund according to an internal probe published by the Washington Free Beacon.

According to the Beacon:

Harold Schaitberger, the president of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF), which represents more than 300,000 firefighters, is facing accusations of corruption and gross financial malpractice from his closest deputies. Edward Kelly, the general secretary-treasurer and the number two of the union, detailed the findings of his team’s audit in a March 20 internal memorandum. According to the 105-page document, the audit has thus far found that Schaitberger and Thomas Miller—Kelly’s predecessor as the general secretary-treasurer—illegally earned millions of dollars from the union pension fund over the last two decades.

Kelly accused Schaitberger’s people of intentional obfuscation and purposefully bad record keeping to hide the theft.

Kelly’s audit also found that the union misreported millions of dollars in union funds while diverting millions of dollars for a purpose unrelated to their original designation. As a result of this rampant financial malpractice, roughly $6 million in union funds remain unaccounted for, according to the memorandum.

New Haven Fire Department battalion chief Frank Ricci is demanding a full investigation.

“If these allegations are proven true through the appropriate due process, Harold A. Schaitberger, General President, should be removed from office. Kelly talks about ‘turning over couches’ to find money, I think it’s time to turn over the couches and chase the rats out,” he told the Beacon.

Schaitberger is one of Biden’s longest labor allies and was the main force for the IAFF to endorse Biden for president.

The Biden ally earns $388,000 a year as a union leader, but he was also pulling in an additional $5,105 a month from the pension system. The additional amount seems to violate the union’s contract as well as federal pension laws.

The probe also accused Schaitberger of reaping millions in unearned pension benefits.

Trump Weighs in on Democrats’ Possible Plan to Replace Biden for 2020

The President exuded his signature confidence in assessing the possibility of facing someone other than the former veep.

Published

on

The Democratic Party has a bit of an embarrassing problem on their hands at the moment, and President Trump isn’t going to waste this opportunity to throw a light verbal jab their way on account of it.

You see, the liberal left wants no part of a Joe Biden nomination.  They see the former Vice President as too much of a centrist, for starters.  Then there’s the fact that he has been virtually MIA on the campaign trail as of late, emerging every so often to say that he doesn’t think he should have to participate in any more debates before being crowned the nominee.

On top of all that, Biden has now been credibly accused of sexual assault by a former staffer – a turn of events that the mainstream media seems to want no part of covering.

It’s likely thanks to all of this that there are serious rumors that Biden could be replaced by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on the 2020 tickets, perhaps during a contentious battle at the Democratic National Convention later this summer.

And President Trump seems to be actually encouraging this.

The president spoke about Cuomo and Biden during an interview with Fox and Friends on Monday morning.

Cuomo’s performance as governor of New York during the coronavirus crisis has boosted his approval ratings, prompting comparisons between him and Biden as leaders of the Democrat party. A new poll shows that 87 percent of New Yorkers now approve of Cuomo’s job performance, up from 44 percent in February.

“I think probably Andrew would be better,” Trump said when asked about Cuomo. “I’m telling you right now, you know, I want somebody in this country that’s going to do a great job.”

But the President certainly wasn’t worried about the prospect of facing the often-adversarial Empire State politician.

“I wouldn’t mind running against Andrew. I don’t mind running against Joe Biden.”

At this point, Trump may just be rooting for the Democrats to go ahead and choose someone so he can get on with his strategizing for the general election.

New Poll Shows Disastrous News For Biden

Published

on

A new poll from ABC News and the Washington Post shows disastrous news for Joe Biden but will greatly delight Trump supporters.

Registered voters opted for Biden by 49 percent over Trump’s 47 percent, the Washington Post-ABC News poll shows with President Trump closing a 7 percentage point gap from February as he responds to the coronavirus outbreak.

Washington Examiner:

We may be paying most of our attention to the coronavirus crisis, but the 2020 election continues nonetheless. In the race’s latest twist, a shock new poll from ABC News and the Washington Post spells very bad news for Joe Biden, yet it will delight supporters of President Trump.

The poll surveyed national support among registered voters, given the option of a head-to-head choice between Trump and Biden. It found that while the former vice president had a 7-point lead in February, that has since winnowed to 2 points, putting Trump and Biden at essentially a statistical tie among registered voters. This alone is a big boost for the president, but the poll’s specifics are even better news for Trump supporters.

In recent weeks, Biden has framed his campaign pitch against Trump simply, arguing that he would be better suited than the current Oval Office occupant to deal with a national crisis such as the pandemic and/or a recession that follows. But this poll suggests voters aren’t buying it.

Only 43% of voters say they would trust Biden more to handle the coronavirus, while 47% say they would trust Trump more to manage the crisis. And on the economic front, a whopping 52% of registered voters say they’d prefer Trump to manage the economy, with just 42% thinking Biden would do a better job on that front. More

The economy is going to take a huge hit with all this. The main question is how people will translate that at the ballot box. Do we need someone like President Trump who built it to heights to stay in there and rebuild again or the Democrats who are notoriously bad for it?

Joe Biden Accused of Sexual Assault — Accuser Breaks Silence

Joe Biden was accused of sexual assault last year. Now his accuser is speaking up with graphic details of her assault.

Published

Joe Biden was accused of sexual assault last year. Now his accuser is speaking up with graphic details of her assault.

Former Biden Senate staffer, Tara Reade, accused the former vice president of sexually inappropriate behavior when she worked for him back in 1993.

Reade has not spent much time revealing what she claims Biden did to her — at least until now. For instance, last April she told The Union that Biden constantly touched her inappropriately. He also made comments about her shapely legs and and when she refused his advances her career in his office was harmed, she said.

“My life was hell,” Reade told the paper last year. “This was about power and control. I couldn’t get a job on the Hill.” She left Biden’s office in August of ’93.

This, though, is about all she has said until now. This week, Reade spoke out and revealed more details about her accusations.

Reade spoke to Katie Halper recently to talk about her assault.

According to Newsone.com:

Reade described a graphic 1993 incident where a superior asked her to take a gym bag to Biden “down towards the capital.” Then she recalls being called towards the “side area” where Biden greeted her.

“We were alone and it was the strangest thing,” she said. “There was no like exchange really. He just had me up against the wall.”

Reade went on to say that she was wearing a business skirt with no stockings because it was hot at the time. While up against the wall, Reade says Biden’s “hands were on me and underneath my clothes.”

“He went down my skirt but then up inside it and he penetrated me with his fingers,” Reade emotionally continued.

Reade also said Biden was kissing her and saying multiple things to her. She remembered a couple of the comments.

“I remember him saying first, like as he was doing it, ‘Do you want to go somewhere else,’” she said. “And then him saying to me when I pulled away, he got finished doing what he was doing, and I kind of just pulled back and he said, ‘Come on man, I heard you liked me.’ And that phrase stayed with me because I kept thinking what I might’ve said and I can’t remember exactly if he said ‘i thought’ or ‘I heard’ but he implied that I had done this.”

Reade then went on to say that “everything shattered in that moment” because she knew that there were no witnesses and she looked up to him. “He was like my father’s age,” she said. “He was like this champion of women’s rights in my eyes and I couldn’t believe it was happening. It seemed surreal.”

Reade alleged that after all that Biden blithely said, “You’re fine” and walked away.

She added that Biden later threatened her and warned her not to repeat the story to anyone.

Hello, “believe the woman” Democrats. Why are you all ignoring this #MeToo moment?

Joe Biden’s Sudden Wisdom: ‘Probably Best I Don’t Keep Talking’

I’m sure many young Democrats would agree with him. 

Published

on

The Democratic Party is likely in a little bit of denial as of late.

You see, they’ve allowed former Vice President Joe Biden to become their presumptive 2020 presidential nominee while he’s in the midst of a gaffe-frenzy that has the party’s youth voting bloc jumping ship in droves.

Biden has been shouting ridiculous epithets at town hall attendees, calling one woman in the audience a “lying, dog-faced pony solider”.  That incident came just a few weeks after the former veep called another campaign event guest “fat” and “a damn liar”.

And just days ago Biden spouted some complete and utter gibberish in the general direction of The View.

It appears that ol’ Joe has finally started making some sense, however, mentioning to MSNBC’s Chris Wallace that he might need to stop talking so much.

When asked how he would handle the coronavirus pandemic if he wins the election, Biden said, “Way back in January 17 I wrote a piece, maybe the 15th. I wrote a piece for “USA Today” saying that, you know, a pandemic is coming. We have to be better prepared. We should have been in a position, I called for a while ago. I would enforce, enforce the defense production act. I would be surging equipment and personnel. I would be moving in a direction where we had the United States military, which I call for several weeks ago building hospitals like finally happening in the National Guard helping in New York with, you know, at the Javits Center. We have this capacity. Most of all, I would be protecting our docs, nurses, and first responders because if we lose them, we are in real, real trouble. We should be making those masks, moving on those ventilators. We can do that. Why doesn’t he just act like a president?”

Then came the tacit admission by the former West Wing resident.

Biden apologized, “That’s a stupid way to say that but I really –”

Wallace who had begun her next question said, “Donald Trump was asked on —”

Biden apologized again, “Sorry.”

Wallace said, “Go ahead.”

Biden said, “No. No. Probably best I don’t.”

I’m sure many young Democrats would agree with him.
