"Still think they'll let you vote them out of power?"

still think we should sit on our derriere's and not bother to vote harder  :-D

Who your County Sheriff and DA is matters a lot. That you can influence. As far as national level, not so much.

He will change on that around the same time he reconsiders his confidence in Russian victory in Ukraine, and that Western Europe would benefit from being under Putin.

See Russians getting victimized by rapefugees? See Russian children getting transed?

REPORTER: “Have you seen Donald Trump’s mugshot yet?”

BIDEN: “I did see on television”

REPORTER: “What’d you think?”

BIDEN: “Handsome guy”

pResident Biden and Strom Thurmond
« Reply #363 on: August 29, 2023, 12:59:42 PM »
During remarks yesterday about civil rights, Biden added another tall tale to his pantheon of pretentious autobiographical prevarications: "I was able to — literally, not figuratively — talk Strom Thurmond into voting for the Civil Rights Act before he died." A quick fact-check reveals that the Civil Rights Act passed when Biden was just 21 — nowhere near the Senate and not even yet 76th out of 85 in his law school class. Thurmond died in 2003 at age 100, so yeah, a lot of things happened before he died, just not what Biden claims. Literally.

Turnabout is fair play:

"Trump says cognitively impaired Biden will lead us into 'WORLD WAR TWO' - during gaffe-laden speech in which he appeared to say he was leading OBAMA in the polls"

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-12525957/Trump-cognitively-impaired-Biden-WORLD-WAR-TWO-gaffe.html

The second part could be intentional.  The first part could be explained as 'something like WWII'.

The difference though is, which is the rule and which is the exception.  Trump 2023 is still sharp compared to Trump of some past year.  He talks off the cuff all the time and is going to have some errors and mis-speaks.  Biden's cognitive ability started on a lower scale, but is clearly getting worse.

Leader of the Free World in a time of War
« Reply #370 on: October 24, 2023, 08:46:02 AM »
He responded to a reporter’s question whether he supported “a hostages for-a-ceasefire deal[.]” Biden responded with his characteristic precision (White House transcript here:

” We should get the — we should have a ceasefire — not a ceasefire, we should have those hostages released, and then we can talk.”

Wait.  Wrong script.

There's nothing like clarity in a time of war.  Nothing like clarity.

I confess I’ve no problem with doddering Zhou speaking truthfully about China’s political structure, though admittedly the truth spoken may not serve current diplomatic ends, but think it’s telling senior staff is willing to so publicly cringe as the boss warbles. It’s one thing when inherited Deep State staff pitch daggers at the boss, But when a putative fellow traveler does the same it suggests internal dysfunction that would be front page news were a Trump admin in place.

'well he is [a dictator]."

Credit where credit is due, I like that he said that.  I think US Presidents should call for free and fair elections in places like China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, if they are going to comment on other people's business at all.

And that free Taiwan never was under the rule of the Chinese Communists.

Yes there is a time and place for diplomacy and zipping up the truth, but what was his alternative, say Xi is a great man benevolently serving the people of China?

It's also a sign he isn't fully beholden to his advisers (against all other signs that he is).

Maybe he will blurt out more truths as his filter deteriorates further.

Advisers HATED when another President said, "Mr. Gorbachev...tear down this wall."

Funny thing today.  No wall.

Zhou Shalt Shit on Israel
« Reply #380 on: November 18, 2023, 06:26:11 AM »
Ye gods, imagine the Progressive (meaning ‘regressive’ in actuality, much like the Bolshevik/Menshevik Newspeak pattern) histrionics were Trump to, say, seek regime change in Iran instead of, go figure, handing them tens of billions of dollars, supporting their nuclear ambitions, incentivizing hostage taking, to name just a few wholly inexplicable administration habits.

I’m not deep into Israeli politics, but it doesn’t take too many clues to look at the region and surmise which nations in the region offer stability and adhere to Western values, with Israel being far and away the front runner there. Why the US would want to destabilize it is therefore a perplexing question

Special Counsel: Biden too Senile to Prosecute
« Reply #387 on: February 08, 2024, 01:52:16 PM »
Quite a campaign slogan. For Trump:

Special counsel describes Biden as ‘elderly man with a poor memory’ in eyebrow-raising report
The Hill News / by Brett Samuels / February 08, 2024 at 04:29PM

Special counsel Robert Hur on Thursday released a 388-page report on President Biden’s retention of classified material, finding the president frequently showed limitations with his memory and recall.

While the report concluded no charges should be brought against the president, its language describing Biden, 81, is likely to be campaign fodder for Republicans who have repeatedly raised questions about the president’s ability to serve.

Some of the language came off looking like a gift to Trump’s presidential campaign.

In opting not to bring charges, Hur cited the shortage of evidence, but also how Biden would present himself to a jury.

“We have also considered that, at trial, Mr. Biden would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur wrote.

“Based on our direct interactions with and observations of him, he is someone for whom many jurors will want to identify reasonable doubt. It would be difficult to convince a jury that they should convict him — by then a former president well into his eighties — of a serious felony that requires a mental state of willfulness.”

The report on more than one occasion refers to Biden struggling to remember things when he spoke to a ghostwriter for his memoir, as well as when he was speaking to investigators.

Hur cited Biden’s 2017 conversations with ghostwriter Mark Zwonitzer, which Hur described as “painfully slow, with Mr. Biden struggling to remember events and straining at times to read and relay his own notebook entries.”

“In his interview with our office, Mr. Biden's memory was worse,” Hur wrote.

A pro-Trump super PAC quickly made use of the report.

“If you're too senile to stand trial, then you're too senile to be president. Joe Biden is unfit to lead this nation,” Alex Pfeiffer, communications director for the pro-Trump super PAC Make America Great Again Inc., said in a statement.

Hur’s report is likely to set off a fury with Biden supporters. Democratic strategist Paul Begala, speaking Thursday afternoon on CNN, described some of the remarks as cheap shots.Biden’s personal and White House lawyers wrote a letter to Hur on Monday upon the conclusion of the investigation arguing the special counsel’s treatment of the president was unfair and called the repeated references to his memory “gratuitous.”

“It is one thing to observe President Biden's memory as being ‘significantly limited’ on certain subjects. It is quite another to use the more sweeping and highly prejudicial language employed later in the report,” White House special counsel Richard Sauber and personal attorney Bob Bauer wrote to Hur.

“This language is not supported by the facts, nor is it appropriately used by a federal prosecutor in this context,” they added. “We request that you revisit your descriptions of President Biden's memory and revise them so that they are stated in a manner that is within the bounds of your expertise and remit.”

Biden’s personal attorney, Bob Bauer, issued a statement Thursday that chastised Hur and his team for “investigative excess” and complained that the special counsel had overstepped with its lengthy report.

Bauer did not directly bring up the references to Biden’s memory, but it was clear he was taking umbrage with the nature of parts of the report.

“Very little in this opus adds to a clear, succinctly stated understanding of a straightforward conclusion: no misconduct occurred, no charges are warranted,” Bauer said in a statement.

“Throughout this process, a guiding principle has been to protect the integrity and independence of this investigation,” Bauer added. “Based on the facts and the law, the Special Counsel in this case had no choice but to find that criminal charges were not warranted. He had other choices, which should have been guided by the Department’s rules, policies, and practices, and he made the wrong ones.”

The president’s age has clouded discussions over the presidential race, particularly with Trump, 77, expected to be the GOP nominee. Polls have repeatedly shown voters have concerns about Biden’s age. Other surveys have suggested a large number of Americans are unhappy with the choice of Biden and Trump.

GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley, who is still in the Republican race, has repeatedly pointed to the need for a new generation of leaders in an effort to give her own campaign new life. Trump trounced Haley in the opening contests of the GOP primary.

The report could also spark real worries among Democrats that they could lose the White House if voters fear Biden’s ability to act as president, a notion Biden’s team has repeatedly pushed back upon. Biden is not facing meaningful opposition in his own primary, though long-shot candidate Dean Phillips, a House member from Minnesota, has sought to make his age an issue.

The special counsel at one point in the report wrote that Biden “did not remember when he was vice president,” forgetting when his term ended, and in another instance forgetting when his term began. Hur reported Biden did not remember when his son Beau had died, and his memory “appeared hazy” when speaking about a debate over Afghanistan that was critical to his memoirs.

“In a case where the government must prove that Mr. Biden knew he had possession of the classified Afghanistan documents after the vice presidency and chose to keep those documents, knowing he was violating the law, we expect that at trial, his attorneys would emphasize these limitations in his recall,” Hur wrote.

Biden said in a statement emphasized his own stamina, and noted that he “cooperated completely, threw up no roadblocks, and sought no delays” in Hur’s investigation.

“In fact, I was so determined to give the Special Counsel what they needed that I went forward with five hours of in-person interviews over two days on October 8th and 9th of last year, even though Israel had just been attacked on October 7th and I was in the middle of handling an international crisis,” he said.

Biden would be 86 at the end of a potential second term. The president has said it is fair for voters to consider his age, but he and his team have stressed that he should be judged on his record of achievements while in office.

Twice this week Biden has confused the names of European leaders he met with at a Group of Seven (G-7) Summit early in his presidency.

An NBC News poll published this week found 76 percent of voters, including 54 percent of Democrats, said they had major or moderate concerns when asked whether Biden, 81, has “the necessary mental and physical health to be president for a second term.”

James Comey:

"In this case, given the importance of the matter, I think unusual transparency is in order. Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.

Robert Hur:

no reasonable jury would convict such a poor decrepit old man.......

It does amaze me how honest at least he is on one point.
That Biden behind the scenes is even worse then we see.  Who could have guessed.
Is it not remarkable how the entire Dem machine and MSM attempt to cover up, ignore, and and lie to us about it.

I could just imagine Paul (forehead)Begala going nuts over this admission.
Will he and Carvillian be on CNN or MSNBC tonight denying all this?

Biden "speech"
« Reply #389 on: February 08, 2024, 05:21:48 PM »
reminded me of Humphrey Bogart in the 'Caine Mutiny"
when in front of the judges he demonstrated clearly and undeniably he was unfit for the job.

This was what I was hoping for.
The reaction of the press was telling they have finally agreed.

It was the first time in yrs we have seen a media tag him with unwanted questions.

Maybe I heard it wrong but I thought he said President of Mexico when I think he meant Israel.

He WILL not be the nominee.
Clear panic on the DEM side
and the smell of blood on ours.

This is the analogy I saw:

Biden raged against Hur’s description of him as likely to be let off by a jury on the grounds of perceived senility. “I am well-meaning, and I’m an elderly man and I know what the hell I’m doing,” Biden fumed. “I’ve been president and I put this country back on its feet. I don’t need his recommendation.”

anger not unusual in old person whose defensive about their memory.

" “My memory is fine,” Biden snapped at one reporter, telling another, “My memory is so bad I let you speak.”

this is the funniest thing he has ever said to reporter who happened to be Fox's Peter Doocy who if he remembered who he was he would not have called on him first.

" “In addition, I know there’s some attentioin paid to the language in the report about my recollection of events, there’s even some reference that I don’t remember when my son died. How the hell dare he raise that? Frankly when I was asked the question, I thought to myself it wasn’t any of their damned business.”

Did he forget HE is the one who always reference his son as dying in battle not us.

Joe's Captain Queeg moment!
« Reply #392 on: February 09, 2024, 06:33:11 AM »
Yes but just think for a moment.

He just told us he is mentally fine then (even jokingly) tells us he forgot to NOT call Peter Doocy!
If that was supposed to be a joke it could not be worse.

I was right he did say president of Mexico when he meant Egypt ( I wasn't sure who he meant and was thinking maybe Netanyahu)

Thank God people read the forum since I was the only one who caught the gaff!    :-D :wink:

This was his Captain Queeg moment! This analogy will catch on too soon.  Watch it will be in the news.

And the astonished looks in the Caine Mutiny courtroom when he was rolling the balls is us ,  the press, etc.

Of course the the Dems will play the party movie as such:

remember this:

https://www.bing.com/videos/riverview/relatedvideo?q=greenwald+throws+drink+on+mcmurray+in+caine+mutiny+video&mid=B40FF6BAA700700DF9F2B40FF6BAA700700DF9F2&FORM=VIRE

Only now they Greenwald will be played by all the DNC and MSM.
McMurray will be represented by the (bastard) Trump (and Maga) and his cult.
Biden will be portrayed as the warrior who fought tirelessly for America for decades till he succumbed to dementia.

DNC " I love Joe Biden who was superb did fantastic job but maybe he should step down.

Just watch.

In other words, Trump is a threat to Democracy every day for the next 200+ days and say nothing else.

What’s That You Say? Narrative Failure? In DC Here’s What We Do
« Reply #394 on: February 10, 2024, 07:42:56 PM »
I’m intentionally misfiling this as, on its face, it is about dotty Uncle Joe’s brain bubbles. I think if you parse the piece more deeply though, you’ll see it’s intent in fact is to misdirect and suck oxygen out of fitness to serve question and apply it instead to Garland (who has to understand on some level that his reputation will be henceforth tarnished by all the shade the DOJ has thrown Joe and all his familia partners in crime) with a wistful side of “if only Merrick had accelerated Trump’s persecution we wouldn’t be in this fix” wild goose.

It’s a classic case of “DC, we have a problem” narrative derailing so they send other trains screeching down side track as they hope the Little Engine That Can gets up a head of steam and pushes Biden’s wheelchair up the electoral hill and on to victory!!!

Good luck with that, but it is interesting to see what 24 hours and likely several operatives whispering in media ears “on background” to give it all an air of insider mystery can do:


White House frustration with Garland grows

The president believes the special counsel investigating his handling of classified documents went beyond his remit. And part of the blame is being placed on the AG.

Joe Biden has told aides and outside advisers that Attorney General Merrick Garland did not do enough to rein in a special counsel report stating that the president had diminished mental faculties, according to two people close to the president, as White House frustration with the head of the Justice Department grows.

The report from special counsel Robert Hur ultimately cleared Biden of any charges stemming from his handling of classified documents that were found at Biden’s think tank and his home. But Hur’s explanation for not bringing charges — that Biden would have persuaded the jury that he was a forgetful old man — upended the presidential campaign and infuriated the White House.

Biden and his closest advisers believe Hur went well beyond his purview and was gratuitous and misleading in his descriptions, according to those two people, who were granted anonymity to speak freely. And they put part of the blame on Garland, who they say should have demanded edits to Hur’s report, including around the descriptions of Biden’s faltering memory.

In White House meetings, aides have questioned why Garland felt the need to appoint a special counsel in the first place, though Biden has publicly said he supported the decision.

While Biden himself has not weighed in on Garland’s future, most of the president’s senior advisers do not believe that the attorney general would remain in his post for a possible second term, according to the two people.

“This has been building for a while,” said one of those people. “No one is happy”

Frustration within the White House at Garland has been growing steadily.

Last year, Biden privately denounced how long the probe into his son was taking, telling aides and outside allies that he believed the stress could send Hunter Biden spiraling back into addiction, according to the same two people. And the elder Biden, the people said, told those confidants that Garland should not have eventually empowered a special counsel to look into his son, believing that he again was caving to outside pressure.

In recent weeks, President Biden has grumbled to aides and advisers that had Garland moved sooner in his investigation into former President Donald Trump’s election interference, a trial may already be underway or even have concluded, according to two people granted anonymity to discuss private matters. That trial still could take place before the election and much of the delay is owed not to Garland but to deliberate resistance put up by the former president and his team.

A spokesperson for the Department of Justice declined to comment. But one former senior Justice Department official noted that some of the frustrations being directed at Garland are better directed toward the White House. The president’s team had the option to exert executive privilege over elements of Hur’s report but declined to do so. And had Garland made edits to the report, he would have had to explain those redactions to Congress.

Beyond that, Garland felt the need to appoint a special counsel in the classified documents case in part because the president’s team bungled when the first documents were discovered.

“The way in which the White House story kept changing at the outset made it much more difficult for the Justice Department to resist having a special counsel,” said the former official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “Had there been a very clear story at the beginning, it would have been easier.”

Biden blasts special counsel for questioning his memory

Biden picked Garland as his attorney general with the stated desire to restore a semblance of independence at the Department of Justice that he and others believed was lost under Donald Trump. He announced the nomination the day after the Jan. 6 attacks at the Capital — a backdrop that Biden offered up as proof that someone of Garland’s stature and temperament was needed in the post.

“Your loyalty is not to me,” Biden said. “You won’t work for me. You are not the president or the vice president’s lawyer.”

Democrats close to Biden fear Garland has become too consumed by that instruction to appear impartial.

“What Democrats do is they bend over backwards not to look partisan, and then they end up hiring people that are partisan but in the other direction,” said a Biden donor, granted anonymity to speak freely about the top law enforcement official in the country. “There’s no question in my mind that the villain here is Merrick Garland.”

But others say Garland has done a commendable job balancing out extremely thorny legal and political matters while maintaining the DOJ’s credibility.

“If you look at each one of these decisions, they are very thoughtful. They are not reflexively ducking responsibility as some would suggest. Rather, they are looking at what the department is supposed to do in any given circumstance,” said Jamie Gorelick, a former United States Deputy Attorney General. “I understand the cumulative impact [but] you have to play out what the alternatives are.”

With the Trump probe already in hands of a special counsel, Garland not appointing a special counsel over the classified Biden documents and simply closing the investigation himself “would not have been credible to the country,” she said.

Justice Department officials say Garland has delivered on a number of fronts — many of them closely identified with Biden or his priorities. Soon after arriving, he announced reorganizations and new initiatives aimed at cracking down on a wave of violent crime that beset many cities in the wake of the pandemic. There are signs those efforts are bearing fruit.

Garland and his deputies have also reinvigorated federal law enforcement in areas Republican administrations often downplay: fighting to preserve abortion access in the wake of the Dobbs Supreme Court decision, aggressively investigating claims of civil rights violations by police, and filing a flurry of often successful cases opposing mergers and alleged monopolistic practices.

But it has been his handling of the overtly political cases that has prompted Democratic agitation. And chief among those decisions now is his selection of Hur, a Trump-appointed U.S. attorney, to oversee the classified documents case.

“I had refused to criticize him but appointing Hur, who is obviously a Republican tool and who issued what I think is an irresponsible report which violates DOJ standards, was a mistake,” said Robert Shrum, a longtime consultant in the Democratic Party. “I think Garland will be criticized by historians. We’ve had some terrific attorneys general and some not so good attorneys general. And I think he’s going to rank in the not so good.”

Biden, for his part, has kept his frustrations with Garland private, even after publicly admonishing Hur in a press conference on Thursday for saying he couldn’t remember the year his son Beau died. On Friday, the White House distributed a list of quotes critical of Hur that did not mention Garland. Senate Democrats, questioned about Garland on Friday, declined to weigh in on his tenure.

“I’m not gonna get into criticizing the attorney general at all,” Sen. Tina Smith (D-Minn.) told POLITICO.

Asked on Friday whether the president had confidence in Garland, Ian Sams, a White House spokesperson for oversight and investigations, noted Biden’s comments from the day before saying he supported the appointment of a special counsel.

But even as the frictions between the White House and DOJ remain relatively contained, outside Democrats are now openly airing their disapproval with Garland’s conduct, and their fears that his selection as attorney general may end up being fatal for Biden.

“Garland is far and away Biden’s worst appointee by an order of magnitude,” Robert Kuttner, co-founder of the liberal American Prospect. “And we all pay the price. If Biden goes down the drain because Garland has mishandled the investigation of Trump and gave Republicans a weapon … then the country pays the price. It’s not just that Biden gets punished for the stupidity of appointing Garland.”

Josh Gerstein, Anthony Adragna and Hailey Fuchs contributed to this report.

Now all we need is Stephanopolous (sp?) for the hat trick….

Wait was it not a week or so ago that Alexdouche was on CNN saying something like Joe did a superb job and is one of the great Presidents but maybe it is time for him to step aside? 

So now it is Hur who stuck a shiv in the back of the senile old man by calling him a senile old man.

DC is like a swamp.
The hurricane sweeps through it and we can see the snakes, the rats, the alligators, the insects the mice, the toads all scurrying around like it was the end of the world over this senile old man when we have so many real threats on the horizon. 

The debt soars, the CCP are on the verge of taking Taiwan and if we try anything to stop it they will turn off our internet, they will disrupt our power stations, unleash their terror cells in our country.
Iran may already have an atomic bomb and more for all we know.

Putin is taking full advantage.
We have demoralized the US citizenry with open borders, DEI WOKE and fostering more racism on us,
we have new threats that AI will impose.   A corrupt media, such spectacularly wealthy people who control our politics, our communications track everything we do to sell and to gain an edge .

And all they can think of is gotta stop Trump.

Forget
climate change.

Jill Biden stands by her demented man
« Reply #396 on: February 11, 2024, 08:59:21 AM »
typical crat

how dare anyone speak the truth that offends them:

https://nypost.com/2024/02/11/news/jill-biden-defends-president-on-age-attacks/

notice the shyster switheroo here :

"May 30th is a day forever etched on our hearts. It shattered me, it shattered our family,” Jill Biden rebutted.

She switches the year to the day since Joe as far as we have heard was not asked what day he died.
I am talking about the son who died in Iraq or was it Afghanistan I don't remember.
The one whose death should invoke outrage when used in a political fashion.

How the hell dare her lie repeatedly to America.

Joe speaks to Bibi

If only Bibi could let us know his thoughts about the cognition of Biden.

Of course he cannot never speak the truth and bite the hand that helps him.

I wonder if Biden really speaks or reads a message with his real manipulators in the "meeting" next to him calling the shots.
