I will let you research it.

My sister called me last night.


My sister is as anti-Trump as they come. Her husband is 100% pro-Trump.


A day doesn't go by without her getting upset over something Trump said, did, or Tweeted. She gets her news from ABC and CNN.
The last time I visited her home she gave me a book called "Everything Trump Touches Dies" by Rick Wilson. I haven't read it yet. Maybe someday I will get around to it.


I don't fully understand her reasoning when choosing candidates, but she stands firm on her choices.
She supported Hillary in 2016 and never gave Bernie a second thought. This year she originally supported Kamala Harris. It had something to do with the Kavanaugh Hearings.
When Kamala dropped out, she decided she would vote for Mayor Bloomberg. She has friends who are New Yorkers and she (we) grew up just outside NYC.


So, she called me last night and the first question she asked me "Did you hear? Mayor Bloomberg dropped out." I told her I had heard.


Then, what she said next really surprised me.


She said "It looks like I'll be voting for Bernie."


Curious, I asked her why not Elizabeth Warren or Joe Biden? She said Elizabeth Warren is too nasty, and Biden is "not playing with a full deck". Then the word 'dementia' came up.


I left it at that as I was glad she was "Feeling the Bern".


I asked her if it was okay if I told her son (my nephew) that she's going to vote for Bernie, since I was about to answer his text message. She said she didn't mind me telling him.
Her son and his wife support Bernie, as they did in 2016.


This is the way we usually hear things from Trump enablers. Could it be Trump enablers, and Bernie enablers act the same way. They say movements produce this type of reactions.

Democrats should be wary of backing Joe Biden and his ‘senior moments’

 

BY:  Miranda Devine

 

What Super Tuesday tells us is that a lot of Democrats would rather risk losing to President Trump with Joe Biden than allow a socialist like Bernie Sanders to hijack their party.

 

That’s good for America, but it’s also a treacherous Hail Mary pass for the party.

The 77-year-old former vice president showed why, moments after taking the stage in Los Angeles on Tuesday night: He mistook his wife for his sister.

 

“They switched on me,” he tried to explain.

 

He went on to give a good speech about healing the nation, and dutifully kept to the script on his teleprompter.

 

But then a protester leaped on stage and Biden’s wife, Jill, 68, instinctively stepped between him and the lunging vegan, grabbed the woman by the wrists and shoved her away.

It was a heroic performance, but it also showed Biden’s peculiar passivity: He just stood there, not reacting, as his wife went into physical battle for him.

 

When the scuffle was over, he placed a protective arm on her back, but it was as if he didn’t realize what had just happened.

 

The truth is that anyone who has seen Biden up close knows he has some sort of cognitive impairment. He often seems bewildered, can’t remember what state he is in, if he’s running for the Senate or the presidency or even whether it’s Super Tuesday or “Super Thursday.”

On Monday, in Texas, he forgot the words of the Declaration of Independence mid-sentence, substituting “the thing” for God.

 

“We hold these truths to be self-evident,” he began. “All men and women created by the [pause, consternation, hands waving] go, you know, you know, the thing.”

It’s sad to see the fear in his face when he suffers these “senior moments.”

 

Everyone has memory lapses, but the problem for Biden is that his are all too frequent and bizarre, and the attempt to explain them away as a function of his childhood stutter are only a temporary diversion.

 

These are not just the tall tales and malapropisms that long have been part of the Biden persona. It’s something new.

 

We know he underwent surgery for two brain aneurysms in 1988, although his surgeon, Dr. Neal Kassell, recently said Biden did not suffer any brain damage “whatsoever.”

But the kindness that has suppressed any honest discussion about Biden’s mental acuity will be swept away if he wins the nomination.

 

The campaign can’t keep him in witness protection forever. At some point, he’ll be caught without the teleprompter, and an off-the-cuff Joe is a ticking time bomb.

As soon as voters saw him up close and personal in Iowa and New Hampshire, the light switched on for them that the lights weren’t all on with him.

 

That’s when his poll numbers started plunging.

 

He was low energy and frequently befuddled. If he were your grandfather, you’d take away the car keys. His aides hauled around a teleprompter to small gatherings so he safely could deliver a stump speech that any other candidate could do in their sleep, but even then, he strayed off course.

It got to the point where Democratic insiders in New Hampshire started a story that Biden’s heart wasn’t in it, that he was running only to fulfill a promise he had made to his dying son, Beau.

To be fair, his team had always said to wait until the South Carolina primary, where his appeal to black voters would kick in.

 

Sure enough, 72 hours after a resounding victory there, he defied even the most optimistic expectations with his Super Tuesday triumph at the expense of Sen. Bernie Sanders. Now he’s the “Comeback Kid” with “Joementum.”

 

He won states in which he had no campaign offices, no money, and which he barely visited. That’s impressive, but what it also tells you is that a lot of Democrats went for the “idea” of Biden: the decent, compassionate, moderate candidate they desperately want to believe exists.

They didn’t want a revolution or free stuff or an autocratic billionaire. So they closed their eyes and signed up for the Biden mirage.

 

But if, by some miracle he does happen to become president, how would he fare dealing with Russian autocrat Vladimir Putin or Chinese President Xi Jinping? Would he have the bandwidth to manage war and the economy at a time of global turmoil?

 

How would he cope with 14-hour days, having to jump off Air Force One straight into the heat of India for meetings and outdoor rallies, and then race back to handle a pandemic?

Jill obviously feels he needs protecting, even from small vegans. How do we know that if Biden became president, he wouldn’t be a puppet manipulated by others?

 

A couple of weeks ago, he promised not to seek a second term “if anything changed in my health, making it incapable for me to fully exert all the energy and mental acuity that was needed.”

Who votes for a president who admits he doesn’t have the juice for two terms?

The Democratic-friendly media may nurse him through the campaign, but President Trump will be merciless to “Sleepy Joe.”

 

The party machine knows this. They are throwing him to the wolves.

It’s cruel to him and it’s a dirty trick to play on voters.

 

Schu’s shame

 

What a disgraceful fraud Chuck Schumer is, telling Trump-appointed Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh that they will “pay the price” unless they do what he wants.

 

If anyone else threatened a judge, they’d be arrested.

“You have released the whirlwind,” he said, directing the comment at the justices as he addressed protesters in front of the court as it considers a Louisiana law requiring abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic.

 

But it’s a good law for women. You just have to remember abortionist butcher Kermit Gosnell, a k a “America’s Biggest Serial Killer,” to know why health authorities should not give free rein to abortion clinics.

 

Show some grace, Liz

 

If Elizabeth Warren can’t win the votes of the people who know her best, in her home state of Massachusetts, she’s finished. It’s a lame excuse from her supporters that she can’t quit the presidential race because that would disillusion little girls who look up to her as a role model. No, the message she sends them by clinging on is that humility, grace and self-knowledge are for suckers.

 

 

 


Here we go again. You try and bring up this nonsense about Biden when the guy you support should be in jail. He is an unindited co  conspirator to Michael Cohen. This guy has had some of his operations shut down for fraud and paid fines. How come you never post anything on that. What is going on here is the usual and typical distraction. When will you start posting all the nonsense Rudy was spilling on TV over the weekend on FOX about Biden, and Trump told us this week he will be using all of it. The one thing that never changes on any of these stories is they are not true now or never.

Teddy Roosevelt said it.

It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.  The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood...........................................

HIs analysis is wrong because Joe Biden is not Hillary Part II.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Of course, there are differences between Hillary and Biden.

 

Hillary called Trump supporters "Deplorables".


Biden calls his own supporters fatso, (darn) liars, lying dog-faced pony soldier, and challenges them to do push-ups. Hillary would never say that.

I can see where this is going so I have no choice but to respond.

 

People vote for someone whom they like, trust, and he/she makes them feel comfortable. They don't base their vote on debating performances or one time answers to questions. If debating counted, Hillary would be president because she won all 3 debates with Trump. 

 

The election will be decided in the purple (battleground) states which are essentially blue collar, mainstream voters. Bernie does not appeal to mainstream, blue collar voters while Biden does. Joe is extremely popular in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Ohio.

 

Bernie will be painted as a socialist and a communist. He will also be described as someone who wants to expand the size of the federal government big time and increase taxes. I'm sorry, but that will be a losing formula in the purple states.

‘Too much detail’: Biden rambling, graphic speeches...


SPARTANBURG, S.C. — In a Democratic primary for president, questions about women’s empowerment and reproductive rights are standard fare.
Yet when Joe Biden was asked about the issue at a SC town hall, Biden’s response was anything but typical.
He rambled for 19 minutes, and wound up discussing how unfair it is for women’s outfits to be discussed in rape cases — a topic that wasn’t implied in the question.
“I’m going to make a controversial statement,” Biden acknowledged, before diving in. “If someone in this room got up, took off all her clothes and walked out the door, no man has a right to touch her. Zero.”


The crowd politely applauded.


The former vice president kept going: “She can be arrested for indecent exposure!”


No applause followed.


Some in the crowd wore puzzled expressions when Biden then mentioned how police or even parents of rape victims face questions about their clothing.


“Did you have underwear on? Were you wearing a bra? How short was your skirt? What did you say?” Biden said in a mock colloquy of a rape victim being questioned.


He also mentioned a case of a woman who refused to date a man, resulting in an attack from “two goons who slashed her face with razors.”


This is Joe Biden, unplugged on the campaign trail: edgy, meandering, graphic, oddball.

HIs analysis is wrong because Joe Biden is not Hillary Part II. None of the following reasons, which cost Hillary the election, apply to Joe Biden. He's a guy who's very popular and well liked in the all important purple (battleground) states.

 

Hillary didn't lose because she was mainstream. Here are the reasons she lost.

  • Hillary refused to acknowledge her private email server was a mistake. She instead spent the entire campaign trying to defend it. Every time her name was mentioned, the words private email server, were also mentioned. If she would have started her campaign by acknowledging that was a mistake, she might have won the election. She instead fell victim to Comey's national press conferences on her email server.
  • Hillary was the victim of about 20 years of vicious, propaganda attacks by the Republicans
  • Hillary never campaigned in the all-important battleground states. She assumed they were automatic wins.
  • Hillary concentrated on policies, not connecting with the voters. Hillary never realized that most voters don't know or even read the policies. They vote for a candidate whom they like or who makes them feel good.
  • Many voters, for whatever reason, hated Hillary.
