Joe Biden is the “Big Guy”

It is looking more and more like the Bidens were conducting a very traditional corruption shakedown scheme.

Tony Bobulinski issued a statement on Wednesday saying that he personally witnessed Biden discuss business deals with his son, Hunter, contradicting claims by the former vice president.

‘I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business.

Bobulinski claimed that the Chinese were pursuing the deal as a ‘political or influence investment’ and that Hunter Biden was ‘using the company as his personal piggy bank by just taking money out of it as soon as it came from the Chinese.’

He said in his statement that he ‘took steps to prevent that from happening.’

Bobulinski also said in his statement that he was one of the recipients of the email from one of Hunter Biden’s business partners which  involved a deal with a Chinese energy firm in May 2017 which promised a 10 per cent cut for a person known as ‘the big guy.’

Bobulinski claimed in his statement that ‘the big guy’ is Joe Biden.

FBI and DOJ Confirm Authenticity of Biden Emails

Well, well… this seems to be relevant.

The FBI has seized Hunter Biden’s laptop and has confirmed the former vice president’s son’s emails are ‘authentic’, while dispelling earlier claims that they are part of a Russia disinformation campaign.

Senior federal officials told Fox News on Tuesday that the bureau is now in possession of the computer allegedly containing emails that could purportedly implicate Joe Biden in his son’s international business dealings during his time as VP.

Insiders said both the FBI and the Department of Justice have concurred with National Intelligence John Ratcliffe’s assessment on Monday that there is no evidence to support the files are part of a Russian disinformation scheme.

Biden Supports Court Packing

After all of the blather about the integrity of the court and a return to normal, Biden is open to one of the most radical power grabs from another branch of government in the modern era.

Democratic nominee Joe Biden opened the door to expanding the number of justices on the Supreme Court, depending on how the rest of Judge Amy Coney Barrett‘s confirmation process is handled.

‘I have not been a fan of court-packing because it generates, whoever wins it just keeps moving in a way that is inconsistent with what is going to be manageable,’ Biden said Thursday night at an ABC News townhall.

But with prodding from George Stephanopoulos, Biden said it would be something he’d consider though it ‘depends on how this turns out,’ telling the ABC News anchor he would announce a clear position by the November 3 presidential election.

Biden Plans to Pack the Court

There is no other way to interpret this answer. You lefties OK with this? You do realize that if Biden does it, then the Republicans will also do it the next time they are in power? Eventually, we will have a SCOTUS with 79 members.

‘They’ll know my opinion on court-packing when the election is over,’ Biden said Thursday as he arrived in Arizona for a campaign stop with running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris.

Unfortunately, I think that our civics education has become so intentionally bad that only a minority of voters will even understand what an assault this is on our Republic.

Biden is Caught Lying About Academic Record

Again. And this time because he was pandering. Again.

Joe Biden said last year that he kicked off his academic career at Delaware State University, a historically black university, but the institution has now denied that claim.

The Washington Times reported that a spokesperson for Delaware State University said the Democratic presidential nominee was never a student at the school, but he did make two appearances for commencement speeches.

‘Vice President Biden did not attend DSU,’ Carlos Holmes, Director of News Services, told the publication.

Biden Campaign Ignores Latino Voters

A Democrat taking an ethnic group for granted? Shocking, I know.

From the start of his campaign, Biden has mostly ignored Latino voters. Already enjoying overwhelming African American support, he chose to focus his campaign efforts in battleground states on winning back white working-class voters who had supported Obama but voted for Trump in 2016. Latino communities seemed to be barely an afterthought.

The result is what pundits have taken to calling Biden’s “Latino problem.” This kind of enthusiasm gap can be extremely dangerous to a candidate. Hillary Clinton learned this the hard way in 2016, when significant numbers of disaffected or unmotivated voters simply didn’t vote. Alarm bells should be ringing at Democratic headquarters.

Democratic strategists have said they hope to keep the pro-Trump Latino vote under 30 percent. The Trump campaign, however, is aiming to obtain more than 40 percent of the Latino vote. So far, the Trump campaign seems to have done far more door-to-door politicking to influence Latino voters in key states.

Biden Leads Trump in Wisconsin Poll

Heh.

Democrat Joe Biden leads Republican President Donald Trump 47% to 43% in a new Wisconsin poll by the Marquette Law School.

Biden had led by 5 points among likely voters when Marquette last polled in early August, so the new poll shows little change in the race even though this was Marquette’s first survey since the two party conventions and since the turmoil and protests in Kenosha,

The same poll right before the election in 2016:

MILWAUKEE – A new Marquette Law School Poll finds 46 percent of Wisconsin likely voters supporting Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and 40 percent supporting Republican Donald Trump in the race for president.

I’d feel pretty good about that poll if I were the Trump campaign (one might remember that Trump won Wisconsin by 0.7% with 3.6% going to the Libertarian candidate).

“Sombre” Groups Greet Biden

Not even the BBC could pretend there was excitement.

Biden supporters came out in small groups to gather outside events he held at a church and a school chanting “Let’s go Joe!” and “Dump Trump!” His appearances were low key, even sombre.

Biden Attempts To Flip Flop on His Willingness to Shut Down Country

Heh. I guess that position wasn’t as popular as he thought.

During Biden’s first joint interview with running mate Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., on Aug. 21, Muir asked Biden if he’d be prepared to shut the country down if the coronavirus crisis combined with the flu season as scientists have warned is a possibility.

[…]

When Muir pressed whether he shut down the country if the scientists advised him to do so, Biden responded, “I would shut it down. I would listen to the scientists.”

Then…

“There’s going to be no need, in my view, to be able to shut down the whole economy,” Biden said. “I got asked by David Muir a question, if I was asked to shut everything down. I took that as a generic question if — am I going to follow the science? I am going to insist, and I insist now, without any authority, that every responsible person in this country, when they’re out in public or not, with the cohort that they have lived with — because they know they haven’t spread it to their husband, wife, etc. — that they wear a mask.”

As I interpret that word salad, I think he’s saying that he’s going to force everyone to wear a mask so it won’t be necessary to shut down the whole economy. Am I understanding him? Is he understanding himself?

Biden Wants Cops Charged, But Won’t Say Same For Anarchist Murderer

Well, I guess we know where Biden’s sympathies lie.

During a news conference in his hometown of Wilmington on Wednesday, Mr Biden was asked whether he agreed with his running mate, Kamala Harris, that the officers in the Blake and Taylor cases should be charged.

“I think we should let the judicial system work its way,” he said. “I do think at a minimum, they need to be charged, the officers.”

[…]

Mr Biden also mentioned the gunman, identified in US media as a far-left activist, who fatally shot a Trump supporter on the streets of Portland, Oregon, last weekend.

The Democratic nominee stopped short of calling for charges in that case, but said: “They should be investigated and it should follow through on what needs to be done.

“Let the judicial system work. Let’s make sure justice is done.”

Biden Coming to Kenosha?

I’ll believe it when I see it. Will he actually mingle and talk to people? Or will this be just another pre-scripted event with no questions and no interaction with the public?

On the heels of President Donald Trump’s trip to Kenosha to support law enforcement in the wake of protests in the community, Joe Biden announced he too will visit the city — marking the former Vice President’s first campaign stop in the state since declaring candidacy.

Biden and his wife Jill Biden will hold a community meeting on Thursday in Kenosha “to bring together Americans to heal and address the challenges we face,” according to a statement from Biden’s campaign. Following the meeting, the Bidens will make an unidentified local stop.

Biden’s visit will come just two days after Trump met with local law enforcement, National Guard members and business owners in Kenosha to push for “law and order” to address protests in the city following the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, on Aug. 23.

It will be interesting to watch the coverage. The media was accusing Trump of politicizing the event and sowing divisiveness – even though he is the President stopping in a ravaged city. Biden is just a political candidate. He has no official capacity. He can’t even pretend that this is anything other than a campaign event. Will the media portray it that way?

Anyway, I hope he can find his way. He hasn’t been West of the Ohio River in ages.

No Convention Bump for Biden

Not surprising. Who watched?

Last week’s Democratic National Convention did not give Joe Biden even the modest polling “bounce” that some previous nominees have enjoyed, according to the new Yahoo News/YouGov poll.

Yet the virtual, COVID-era event, which most viewers thought went better than expected, did boost Biden’s favorability rating and solidify his support, preserving his 11-point lead over President Trump heading into this week’s Republican National Convention.

Biden Would Shut Down Country

This is precisely why he should not be elected. He would throw away our jobs, our savings, our lives, and our futures. He has no judgment and no ability to balance competing interests and conflicting information. The notion that he would shut down the country – as if POTUS even had that authority – because “the scientists” said so is disgusting.

Former Vice President Joe Biden said in an exclusive interview with ABC “World News Tonight” Anchor David Muir on Friday that as president, he would shut the country down to stop the spread of COVID-19 if the move was recommended to him by scientists.

“I would shut it down; I would listen to the scientists,” Biden told Muir Friday, alongside his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., during their first joint interview since officially becoming the Democratic Party’s presidential and vice presidential nominees.

Harris Gets the VP Nod

This should be fun.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has named Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate – the first black woman and Asian American in the role.

Once a rival for the top job, the California senator of Indian-Jamaican heritage had long been considered the front-runner for the number two slot.

The former California attorney general has been urging police reform amid nationwide anti-racism protests.

[…]

She repeatedly clashed with Mr Biden during the primary election debates, most notably criticising his praise for the “civil” working relationship he had with former senators who favoured racial segregation.

The Democrat was born in Oakland, California, to two immigrant parents: an Indian-born mother and Jamaican-born father.

She went on to attend Howard University, one of the nation’s preeminent historically black colleges and universities. She has described her time there as among the most formative experiences of her life.

[…]

After four years at Howard, Ms Harris went on to earn her law degree at the University of California, Hastings, and began her career in the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office.

She became the district attorney – the top prosecutor – for San Francisco in 2003, before being elected the first woman and the first African American to serve as California’s attorney general, the top lawyer and law enforcement official in America’s most populous state.

[…]

But the senator failed to articulate a clear rationale for her campaign, and gave muddled answers to questions in key policy areas like healthcare.

She was also unable to capitalise on the clear high point of her candidacy: debate performances that showed off her prosecutorial skills, often placing Mr Biden in the line of attack.

Poetry of Joe Biden

If this man weren’t running for president, this would be funnier.

 

 

Biden Dumps Wisconsin

Heh

Joe Biden is no longer planning to travel to the Democratic convention site of Milwaukee to accept the party’s presidential nomination, citing coronavirus concerns.

Convention organizers said in a statement Wednesday that Biden will instead accept the Democratic nomination and deliver a speech from his home state of Delaware, and other speakers also will not go to Milwaukee.

 

Biden too Moderate?

BWHAHAHA!!!

The hope to put an end to this American nightmare is Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic Party nominee, an empathetic and honest politician whose life has twice been touched by profound personal tragedy, but who bears a stain among many lefties for being — wait for it — too moderate.

What a sin.

It doesn’t seem to matter that the former vice president has rolled out a progressive agenda on economic justice, climate change and the pandemic response that should excite the full spectrum of Democratic voters desperate to escape this darkest of American political eras.

But I can just hear it: He’s just too old, too mainstream. He doesn’t, you know, excite me.
So the politician whose 1988 run president was derailed by plagiarism is “honest.” Uh huh.
What’s funny is that Biden has always been on the left spectrum of the Democratic Party – right up until the past few years when the Party lurched past him to Socialism. Now Biden is trying to keep up with the party, but he just can’t seem to get far enough Left for some of them.

Biden Would Abuse Executive Power and Ignore Federalism

Here’s a winning issue… not. Irrespective whether wearing a mask is a good idea or not, do you really want the President of the United States to have the power to micromanage your life like that? Hint: he doesn’t.

(CNN)Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden said if elected president, he would make wearing a face covering in public compulsory, furthering himself on the issue from President Donald Trump who has stressed that masks are voluntary and has flouted public health recommendations.

“The one thing we do know is these masks make a gigantic difference. I would insist that everybody out in public be wearing that mask. Anyone to reopen would have to make sure that they walked into a business that had masks,” Biden told CNN’s affiliate in Pittsburgh, KDKA, while wearing a black mask.
Pressed if he’d use federal power to mandate wearing a mask in public, Biden responded, “Yes, I would. From an executive standpoint, yes I would.”
Asked again if that meant he would “in effect” mandate mask wearing, Biden said, “I would do everything possible to make it required that people had to wear masks in public.”
Take notice of how hard the reporter tried to rescue Biden from himself.

“Then you ain’t black”

Well, I guess we can guarantee that Biden will choose a black person to be his running mate.

When an aide for Mr Biden tried to end the interview, Charlamagne protested, saying: “You can’t do that to black media.”

“I do that to white media and black media,” Mr Biden replied, adding that his wife was waiting to use their home broadcast studio.

Charlamagne urged Mr Biden to return for another interview, saying he had more questions.

“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Mr Biden responded.

Obama Continues to Lead From Behind

Way to get out in front, Obama!

Obama said: “The kind of leadership that’s guided by knowledge and experience; honesty and humility; empathy and grace – that kind of leadership doesn’t just belong in our state capitols and mayors offices. It belongs in the White House.

“That’s why I’m so proud to endorse Joe Biden for President of the United States.

“Choosing Joe to by my Vice President was one of the best decisions I ever made and he became a close friend

“And I believe Joe has all the qualities we need in a President right now.”
