The old man and the felon.

 


   I watched what was promoted as a Presidential Debate by CNN Thursday night, and it was painful. The old man, in spite of all his accomplishments, and the obvious successes of his administration, could not convey that to the American people. First, because he is old, and second, he has a stuttering problem. His handlers and the paid DNC consultants should all be charged with political malpractice by the millions of people who support the old man. Whether you think it was because he was out campaigning the day before, or he had a cold, his voice was not ready for prime time. (We could barely hear the poor guy for crying out loud!) And they crammed him with too much information. You could see the information overload freezing his bran in real time. This is not how you win an election and save democracy.

  The felon, on the other hand, was in his wheelhouse. Telling lie after lie unchecked, and having his way with the CNN anchors, the old man, and most importantly, the truth. I was embarrassed for America. When your Presidential Debate is reduced to which one of the candidates has a better golf game, and whether one of the men on stage actually had sex with a porn star while his pregnant wife was at home expecting his child, you might just have a problem. The truth is, the felon should not have been out on that stage in the first place. He should be in jail, just like the sycophants who support him, and are members of his cult. (FYI, Steve Bannon will be reporting for lock up on Monday) But here we are. Oh to be a wealthy powerful white man in America. Just think, you can literally have a bunch of Supreme Court Justices in your pocket, and avoid having to own up to your misdeeds because a Judge you appointed is beholden to you.     

The dems are now in full-blown panic mode, as they should be. The old man's numbers are not good, and they don't seem to be getting any better.  There is talk now of an open convention. "He must be replaced" comes the screams from the talking heads and pundits on television. This, in spite of the fact that his administration is kicking ass by all objective measures. I can understand the fear, though. The thought of giving the felon four more years in the White House is frightening. It's not hyperbole to say that he most likely will end democracy as we know it. It's what he and his Christofascist friends have promised.  You have to take them at their word when they say that they will do something. It's already started. (Google Louisiana and the 10 Commandments, and Project 2025 when you get a chance.)

 The old man has some soul searching to do. Only he knows if he can see this thing through. He sure didn't look like he was up for the job of beating the felon in a debate Thursday night. If he truly believes that the felon is such a threat do democracy, and he has no chance of beating him, he should step aside, and give the dems a shot. That would be the patriotic thing to do. If, on the other hand, he believes that he is up for the job, well then go for it.  Personally, I would vote for a dead turtle before I even consider voting for the felon. The man who said he created more "black jobs" than any other president on Thursday without batting an eye. (Like WTF is a "black job"?)  It just goes to show you who we are dealing with.  If the felon thinks he will win the White House with black votes, he is in for a big surprise. Sadly,  he could very well win it all because of white folks, who don't see the threat because of their shared skin color and the lies. 

Vote!

As usual, you nailed it with this commentary. Yes, it's all about "race." Racism trumps democracy (literally and figuratively). All you have to do is make it about race and "they're hooked." Also, let's not forget it took 2 terms of a previous "chief" before they realized he did not have their best interest at heart either( stock market crash; predatory loans). It's all about the rich taking care of the rich. Also, to get votes, they always use the "divide and conquer" tactic as a smokescreen. Notoriously using fear tactics that scare white women into voting against their own best interest. And they also manage to divide and conquer some black people and some hispanic males into voting against their own best interest. They do this by tricking them into believing that they are being "accepted" and then getting their votes. Lastly, when the Constitution was written they never dreamed that it would have to be shared with people that did not come from Europe. That's what's causing all the mass hysteria.

I didn’t watch the debate, but the clips of it were grim. If Biden wasn’t feeling well enough to perform, he should have postponed it. That would gave been a bad look, but better than stumbling your way through the debate and helping Trump’s narrative that you’re senile and should be put out to pasture.

As far as replacing Biden, this is now a real possibility, but one that fills me with dread because the process may be divisive, and who knows if the replacement will even have a better shot than Biden?

The main problem here is the Kamala or Someone Else problem. Because those are the alternatives.

What Kamala has going for her is that she’s already nationally known; there wouldn’t be much time to introduce the public to a less well-known figure picked at the convention. The downside of Kamala is that while the public know her … they don’t like her. Her polling is frankly bad. And Trump will be in his happy place running against a woman of color. It will be the most hateful general election campaign you’ve ever seen.

However, if you pick someone else, while there are some great choices out there — many people have been pointing at Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer — as I’ve said, they may be less nationally well-known, with little time to introduce themselves. And also, I fear that black voters will feel betrayed if Kamala gets shut out. As VP, there may be an expectation that it is her “turn” to run, and that she’s being treated unfairly. The Trump campaign has been crowing about how he is going to win black voters. I don’t buy this. I don’t think many will vote for him; the real danger is that some may not vote at all. A sense that Kamala got shafted will only increase this.

Just a dreadful situation for the Dems and the country. While I think Joe Biden has actually done a good job as president, he is unable to get out there and argue against the false narratives that he’s done a bad job. I still wish we’d nominated Liz Warren instead. She’d be shredding Trump right about now, and he’d be reduced to yelling “COMMIE!” and making pathetic Pocahontas jokes.

==================================

Or, after extending greetings to CNN moderators and the viewing audience, why did Pres. Biden simply not convey he was under the weather because of a very bad cold symptoms?

This would have been understandable. And former Trump fixer, Mr. Michael Cohen, offered a stellar perspective about Pres. Biden's poor debate during his appearance on MSNBC's Ali Veshi's show today 06/29/24. Mr. Cohen reminded viewers the president was running the country and had just returned from the G7-Summit in Europe.

So many people the world over know firsthand what it's like to push forward enduring head and/or chest congestion. And how about Texas Rep. Jasmine Crockett, also appearing on Velshi this morning, further opined too many folks in the democratic party are willing to throw their own under the bus over a bad performance night.

My other dismay concerns the CNN rule banning extemporaneous note cards. Really don't understand the campaign agreeing to this.

“My other dismay concerns the CNN rule banning extemporaneous note cards. Really don't understand the campaign agreeing to this.”

The main deficiency in the rules was that the moderators were not allowed to shut down Trump if he lied. Because it was totally predictable that he would.

Of course, Trump would never have agreed to debates held under these conditions. So maybe Biden should have held a press conference announcing that there would be no debates held this year because Trump demands the right to lie.

dinthebeast said...

Ditching Biden is electoral suicide, plain and simple. This election will not be decided by the informed voters who are now screaming for a different candidate, it will be decided by unengaged voters making their decisions on the thinnest of reasonings, on the margins, as the pundits say, and those folks aren't gonna vote for a candidate they have never heard of, no matter how good they are or what is in their resume.
So now, our job, getting those unengaged folks to mark the space next to Joseph Robinette Biden on their ballots, just got harder.
What then, are we gonna do? Throw up our hands and weep that the contest isn't a fucking cake walk? Or fight like hell as if our very lives depended on it (as well as the survival of American democracy)?
There are worse things than a bad debate. This is only over if we give up and don't even try.

That’s the problem with replacing Biden, alright. You’ve only got a couple months to introduce a new candidate to people who stubbornly, I would say stupidly, pay virtually no attention to politics, but still think it’s a good idea to go ahead and vote anyway. I won’t say that’s impossible, but boy, is it a tall order.

Or you’ve got two months to make them start liking Kamala Harris, when they don’t like her now. Again, a tall order.

You hit all the right notes, Field, and I wanted to shout "amen" after every one. Even saying that it's up to him whether to bow out, because only he can release his delegates. Can the electorate realize that, unlike Orange Man's assumption, the presidency is not a one-man show? That Biden presides over an ADMINISTRATION of, in this case, almost all quality, efficient people who have helped him achieve what he's given credit for by the fair-minded? Biden's judgment is far from perfect (hello Gazans, those of you who are left), but mostly he's known how to accomplish things in spite of Republicans who would rather see the country fail than let him take credit for any positive improvement in American live. On one level that's miraculous.

Fergus: "I'm officially buggering this toddler while officially chowing down on these barbecued baby legs."
SCOTUS: "OK, you're cool."
The goddamn Republicans on SCOTUS and Fergus both have a serious misapprehension of the job of POTUS. The constitution and the nation's laws are not, in fact, impediments to a president doing their job; upholding the constitution and faithfully executing the nation's laws IS THE JOB of the president. Do they sometimes make it more difficult to do the job? Sure they do. Nobody besides Fergus ever said that the job is easy, and even he admitted later that it wasn't.
He, of course, wants the job to be "I'm the big boss of everything" because he's a malignant narcissist, but the goddamn founders were pretty damn explicit about that not being the case.
We need to win this and the next few elections and get rid of the filibuster so we can pass democracy reform and expand the court. Thirteen justices to match the number of circuits (as the nine we have now did when instituted) would help, but it would only delay the capture of the court like it is now for a while. Politics Girl had the sanest court reform idea I've heard: expand the number of justices to 27 and pick nine at random for each case, so the filthy rich can't tailor their approach to woo specific justices.
This only empowers the criminal and the corrupt among presidents as they are the only ones who want to break laws while doing the job. Fuck Gerald Ford for pardoning Nixon, and fuck Poppy Bush for pardoning the Iran Contra felons.

A friend sent me this:
There is drum beat that Obama could be surrogate - - theory is even though US president can't be elected more than twice, he can serve more than twice (e.g., VP Johnson assumed office when Kennedy died and then was elected and could have run again but didn't).
Obama has been laying the path so Dems can avoid knock-down drag-out convention fight. Namely, he will campaign vigorously in Biden's stead w/ tacit understanding that once Biden is re-elected, 25th amendment will be invoked and Obama can "assume" presidency w/ VP Kamala remaining VP.
Who knows?

Anonymous said...

This seems like the wildest of Hail Marys — that while Obama couldn’t legally be elected to a third term as president, he could legally inherit a third term. In other words, he could run as Biden’s VP, with essentially everyone understanding that the moment Biden is inaugurated, he would immediately step down and Obama would become president once more.

The fly in the ointment is that, as far as I know, Obama has zero desire to serve another term as president. I think this option for replacing Biden is a fantasy.

So it begins, again.... Israel, escalating its campaign to seize territory in the West Bank and accommodate 500,000 new settlers, is pushing forward with the largest single appropriation of Palestinian land since 1993, according to major news outlets.

The impending seizure and conversion of these areas into state land, approved by the Israeli government last month and publicized by Peace Now on Wednesday, encompasses five square miles and, like other seizures that were approved and implemented earlier this year, threatens the mass eviction of Palestinians already living there. Israeli policy dictates that state land is effectively off-limits to Palestinians and can only be leased to Jewish settlers.

Roberts isn’t personally inclined to do much reining in anyway when it comes to attacks on democracy or efforts to further empower the rich. He is actually extremely right-wing in his own right on these issues.

He might be at least a bit of a moderating voice sometimes on “social issues” (aka gun nuttery, or bigotry). But it’s a mistake to characterize him as a moderate overall. He only looks moderate in comparison to bomb-throwing lunatics like Thomas, Alito, and Gorsuch.

Does a pilot get to have a bad night? Does a brain surgeon get to have a bad night? Biden is the one who challenged Insane Clown. Biden said Come On Man Make My Day. So no Biden does not get to have a bad night. Especially not when your opponent is an Insane Clown who should be childs play. Biden wanted a game changer and he got one but in reverse. Biden has zero chance of beating Insane Clown now. It will get to the point where one of 2 things have to happen. Either the growing chorus of people calling on Biden to drop out will all have to change their tune, or Biden will have to drop out. We have already seen in 2016 what happens when Hillary put self over country. That being said whoever becomes the Democratic nominee must put this They Go Low We Go High bullshit aside and kick Insane Clown in the balls. Insane Clown is a racist career criminal Putin wannabe traitor who belongs in jail. Who has long since dropped any pretense of innocence instead begging the court for immunity for his treasonous criminal acts. These words must be spoken. Insane Clown bears full responsibility with his clownish response to the pandemic for the supply chain issues and in turn the resulting inflation which is only now being brought under control (Biden actually said that and no one else ever has but it got lost in the rest of his stumbling and mumbling and bumbling). Insane Clown is singularly responsible for shitcaning the bipartisan border security bill and as such now owns any deficiency in border security. For that matter Insane Clown never for a minute took being president seriously. Throwing paper towels. Rake the forest. Trading Puerto Rico for Greenland. Windmills cause cancer. Nuking hurricanes. Drawing dick pix on a hurricane map. Falling in love with Li'l Kim. All these words must be spoken. This is not a campaign. This is a motherfucking war. Democrats need to get that straight in their heads and put their smiley faces aside or else prepare for the Second Coming of Insane Clown. The writing is on the wall and in The Book Of Retribution.

“Does a pilot get to have a bad night? Does a brain surgeon get to have a bad night?”

Actually, yes, they do. If either of them is so incapacitated they cannot do their job, then the job gets postponed. Or one of their colleagues subs in for them and flys the plane or performs the surgery.

There is a reason we have vice presidents — so they can, on occasion, do the same for a president, if necessary. Not a problem. Presidents are human.

However, what everyone is worried about here is that this was not “a” bad night, a single one-off event. They fear that, in fact, this may be a frequent occurrence for Biden, that perhaps he regularly, unpredictably has periods of time when he just goes catatonic and cannot communicate, and this has unconscionably been kept from the public. This would be a disqualifying condition for a president if true.

To make things even worse … maybe it does not even matter whether Biden does or doesn’t have such a condition. Trump has been pushing the narrative that Biden is in decline, and Biden’s abysmal performance in the debate cemented that impression for a lot of people. Even if it turns out Biden is perfectly cognitively healthy, it may now not be possible to change people’s belief that he isn’t — which will likely mean Biden can’t win. (Personally, I don’t even care that much if Biden can do the job, at this point. If he is cognitively failing in the White House, his Cabinet can 25th Amendment him and make Kamala Harris president. What I am NOT fine with is Biden losing, and then fucking Trump becomes president and destroys the country. Virtually anything is better than that outcome.)

These are the motivations behind those demanding he quit the race.

“Moar proof magats hate kids and women....”

Mostly women, in this case.
The increase in infant mortality rates is probably down to infants who were doomed anyway, because they had terrible birth defects. It’s just that when you force pregnant women to carry them to term and deliver, the inevitable deaths count toward infant mortality statistics; when the women abort them, they don’t. Either way, though, the outcome is the same for fetus/baby: death.

There is a major difference for the women, though. It is cruel to force them to continue doomed pregnancies for months more, then deliver, knowing all along that they’re 100% going to end up with a dead baby.

Sadly, lots of people don’t seem to have much idea what distinguishes the candidates. “Low-information” voters don’t get how awful Trump is. Many just think Trump is a wacky “character” who says funny things, and they don’t get that Jan 6th was part of a serious, organized scheme by him to overthrow democracy.

Obviously, if you understand that Trump is an evil monster, you’d vote to put a German Shepherd in the White House before him. But if you don’t understand this, concerns about Biden’s cognitive health may be more convincing. Especially if the Trump campaign floods the Internet with clips from the debate, with Biden looking demented, as they undoubtedly will.

Time to play La Marseillaise! France dodges another bullet. Exit polls indicate a shock win for a left-wing alliance in the French parliamentary elections, blocking the fascist National Rally Party from taking power.

I have to say, I am feeling extremely envious of Western Europe at the moment. The Left has vanquished the Right in both the UK and France.

Meanwhile, here, the entire political system seems to be circling the drain, between the Supreme Court giddily tearing up the Constitution and the Biden campaign collapsing after his catatonic debate performance. I expected this election year to be bad, but not this bad.

A Parkinson's bill? Why don't they just say so then and fuck all this cloak and dagger bullshit?

Let's be clear. This was a self inflicted wound. Biden wants to whine about a bad night? No Biden is not entitled to a "bad night". Not when he said Come On Man Make My Day. And not when his opponent is a fucking Insane Clown. And this was not a "bad night". A bad night would be one gaffe maybe 2. Insane Clown knocked Biden down picked him up and knocked him down again and again and again. If this was a boxing match it would have been stopped in round 1. All the press conferences or TV interviews won't change that. The only thing that could possibly change that is a rematch and that won't happen until September when it will be too late to replace him. The stakes are too damn high. This is not a campaign. This is a motherfucking war. A war that Biden on his best day is not equipped to fight.

Hmmm...So now they're saying that Kamala is "not ready."

What did he know about history, foreign affairs, the government...the military, the law, running daddy's business without filing bankruptcy? Was/is he able to speak in complete sentences? When was he able to speak and conduct himself in a dignified manner when speaking/meeting foreign dignitaries Does he sound intelligent. It was 4 years of gaffes.

Love to say black folks have no respect for the police or law enforcement but then condone the crushing death of innocent cops that got killed doing their job to protect and defend "law and order" during the Jan 6th riot.

Oh how they love to forgive each other for their treaspasses and dastardly deeds...but measure the actions of people of color using a longer yardstick... All while they continue to take and work at jobs that they were "never ready for."

The White House spokesperson did not say anything at all about a “Parkinson’s bill.” That was just some writer’s invention or speculation, I think.

To be clear, what the White House spokesperson said was that a) Biden did not have Parkinson’s; b) he had in fact seen that neurologist, but only along with his gp as part of his routine annual physicals, not to treat an ongoing neurological condition; and c) implied that all the other White House visits by that doctor were to examine/treat some other, unnamed White House staffer(s) and not Biden.

Not cheating, just cooperation.

France has multiple major political parties, unlike the U.S., which has only two. But fortunately, they have a two-round election system, which helps voters from the non-fascist parties to lend votes to each other. They can gang up on the fascists and block them from getting into power.

Non-citizens are already banned by federal law from voting in national elections.

This bill is yet another Voter ID law that is predicated on a an evidence-free conspiracy theory beloved by racists (that there are significant numbers of foreigners voting illegally, which is not true). And its actual intent is to suppress completely legal voting in order to help Republicans get elected (under the assumption that those citizens who lack IDs and will this be blocked from voting will be mostly poor people, and that poor people are most likely to vote for Democrats).

REALITY CHECK...
FOR EXAMPLE:
1) You put all of your eggs in one basket by spending all of your
time, money and energy prosecuting "you know who" and expecting
the anointed ones in the Supreme Court Majority to rule against
"you know who."

2) You are still waiting for someone who may be stubborn, or ego
driven, or most importantly ...cognitively impaired, to "decide
for himself" if and when to step down from being the commander in
chief.

3) Even if by some "great miracle" the Democratic candidate does stay
in and win, do you really think that his age along with his
rapidly declining cognitive ability will enable him to remain in
office for 4 MORE YEARS? HELLO....REALLY?

4) How long do you think that you can continue to "prop someone up"
like a rag doll and pretend they can run your country?

5) Is anyone using any critical thinking skills to realize how
America looks to other countries on the world stage with a
leader that is obviously in rapid cognitive decline?

6) The Democrats painted themselves into a corner and now they either
"refuse to" or "just don't know how to" get out of it. Some fear
that their egos and bad decisions will inadvertently contribute to
a win for "you know who."

7) Didn't the recent ruling by the majority of the highest in the
land do the following:
* paved the way,
* prepared the thrown,
* and officially given rise to an imperial dictator?

The manslaughter case against Alec Baldwin is over. The judge dismissed the case with prejudice because the prosecution withheld exculpatory evidence from the defense.

This was always an idiotic prosecution. A Hollywood movie set is not a normal situation with regards to firearms, and it is not reasonable to treat actors the same as gun owners out in the “real world.” They cannot be expected to understand or take responsibility for a prop gun (with all of the varieties of prop ammunition that may be used) that somebody just handed them on set.

This is why Hollywood production companies hire gun experts (armorers), who are supposed to be the accountable party for all the firearms used. It’s crazy to blame the actor when the armorer didn’t do her job right.

Good discussion on Daily Kos--contained this tidbit I wasn't aware of:

The entire gestalt around the question of whether or not President Biden should step aside is not grounded in reality. If any of the leading media outlets had spent just a few hours researching the mechanics of our electoral system, they would realize that it simply is not possible for Joe Biden to step aside. IF they had, they would know that Georgia, Arizona, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin only let the elected candidate be replaced on the ballot by death.

You can read the entire analysis here:

“IF they had, they would know that Georgia, Arizona, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin only let the elected candidate be replaced on the ballot by death.”

This … sounds like nonsense. The writer includes no citations of state law to back up his claim.

As far as I know, all states defer to parties’ internal rules when it comes to which candidate those parties nominate to put on the general election ballot. There is no question of whether you can take Joe Biden “off” the ballot. He isn’t “on” any ballot yet, because his party electors haven’t nominated him yet. That happens at the convention.

Maybe this dude is confusing this with what happens if you try to remove someone from the ballot AFTER they’ve been nominated.

“You are right and if I had read the comments to the article, I would have arrived at a different conclusion. I let my eagerness to slap the MSM upside the head rush me to an erroneous ‘gotcha’ moment.”

I don’t think you read it wrong. I just think the writer IS wrong. He has probably misunderstood the laws somehow.

I don’t think everyone understands that when you “vote for Joe Biden” in a primary, you haven’t actually voted for Joe Biden. You’ve only voted for Joe Biden’s Democratic convention electors. The real election of the nominee happens at the party convention, and those electors are not required to vote for Joe (although they are very unlikely to vote for anyone else without him stepping down as a candidate first).

So maybe the writer was misunderstanding how that works, in fact and law. Or, like I said, maybe he was talking about changing the nominee after the vote has happened at the convention, which you really can’t do.

Right now, it’s certainly possible for Biden to drop out and for someone else to be nominated. The debate is about whether it is wise to do so.

Had he instead had a say, .308 Weatherby, which is a bolt action rifle, he could not have reloaded after his first shot before the secret service permanently perforated him, saving the three bystanders from being shot by the ridiculous asshole.
Now it's also possible that with the better accuracy of the Weatherby, he could have succeeded in his assassination attempt at that distance, but that is neither here nor there.

He has difficulty with short-term memory tasks and focusing on tasks.

He has a deficit in problem-solving and logical reasoning

He definitely has a challenge in communication and language

He has difficulty with comprehension.

Recovering TrumpTard said...

Regarding the Trump assassination attempt, you have to ask the impertinent question: Cui Bono? Who Benefits?

The obvious answer is the Republicans and MAGA/Trump benefit.

The Democrats are now on their political backfoot, as they have to sharply curtail their political criticisms of Trump, who now is cast as a sympathetic victim of a horrible shooting.

Moreover, some Republicans like Lauren Boebert have accused the Biden government of being responsible for this attack.

Trump has also used this assassination attempt to galvanize his Republican and MAGA base.

Indeed, the photos conveniently taken of Trump appearing defiant immediately after being shot, with blood dripping from his ear and the American flag waving in the background, help to promote an iconic visual image of Trump as an American Hero™.

Christian Evangelicals are even claiming that God was specifically protecting Trump from this near assassination, with Trump being depicted as a kind of quasi-religious messiah or savior.

Most importantly, some political pundits have even asserted that Trump has effectively won the election by surviving this shooting.

Of course, some people will instinctively dismiss even asking this question as "conspiracy theory."

But it must be asked.

Cui Bono?

They secured every building but the one where the shooter went. The shooter made his way in plain sight across the field and up the building. Multiple people saw him and pointed him out. They said Insane Clown was being treated at "a local medical facility". Can anyone verify that? It wasn't long before Insane Clown was on a plane back to New Jersey. The shooter inmediately himself shot reminds me of the Joe Colombo shooting where they hired some black guy with no mob connection to shoot Colombo then a mob guy shoots the black guy. The timing right before the convention where he can come out like Supertrump faster than a speeding bullet. And where he can announce that he has proof that it's all Biden's doing and that Biden will be charged with attempted murder on Day 1 of the Second Coming. No proof of this but yeah I smell a rat for sure.

Democrats are like crackheads who can’t control their spending, they sell off their assets for a fraction of the true value to feed their spending addiction.

Well this does open up the smallish chance that the case lands in front of a competent judge now.

To the media who have been trying to use Biden's advance team as evidence of his disability: Had Fergus' advance team been a bit more like Biden's advance team, Fergus might have fewer holes in his ear.

Will she? I guess that depends on whether an appeal lands on the desk of another Trump flunky in the judiciary, or someone willing to do their damn job.

So now that RFK Jr. will get secret service protection, does that mean that he definitely will get shot in the ear, and if so, has he had his tetanus booster?
