  • Joe Biden Isn’t Going to Make It

    Wall Street Journal ^ | October 16, 2019 | Daniel Henninger
    One watches these Democratic debates with the same core question in mind: Can any of these candidates—Biden, Warren, Sanders, Buttigieg, Harris or the seven others—take down Donald Trump? Are any capable of going one-on-one for three months next fall with the greatest mixed-martial-arts fighter in presidential history? This week’s debate took place about a year from the main event, so let’s cut to the question of the moment: Is Joe Biden going to make it? In my opinion, no. Based on his performance in Westerville, Ohio, Mr. Biden is not going to make it. To be clear, the issue here...
  • ABC News Interview Didn’t Help Hunter Biden’s Credibility At All: This Spells Trouble for Joe

    If Hunter carries himself publicly as he did in this interview, people will neither like him nor trust him—and that may spell trouble for Joe. The fourth Democratic primary debate offered yet another opportunity for former vice president Joe Biden to dodge questions about his son Hunter’s shady business activities. While his father was running the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy, Hunter was serving on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company, earning up to $50,000 per month despite zero experience in the energy sector.In Tuesday night’s debate, when Anderson Cooper questioned Biden about the impropriety of this dynamic, Biden...

    Presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden vowed Wednesday to change his handsy ways after four women came forward to accuse him of inappropriate touching. “Social norms have begun to change, they’ve shifted and the boundaries of protecting personal space have been reset, and I get it,” said the former vice president in a video posted to his Twitter account. “I hear what they’re saying, I understand it and I’ll be much more mindful.” Biden maintained that he meant no ill will, and his penchant for hugs and shoulder rubs was “just who I am,” but conceded that it was on...

    Burning question: Why is it that Biden was a long time groper—but one only being outed this week? It’s Not Joe Biden Who Can Be Heard Hollering From Under the Bus But the Hollering of Those Who Threw Him ThereQuestion of the day: Why did the Democrat Party blatantly ignore Joe Biden’s fulsome career of fondling and groping women until this week? In August of 2016, Biden gave Hillary Clinton what CNN called an “endless embrace”:
  • Nancy Pelosi: My Grandchildren Played ‘Open Biden’ Game with ‘Affectionate’ Joe

    04/02/2019 1:10:10 PM PDT · by MNDude · 33 replies
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Tuesday said #MeToo allegations against former Vice President Joe Biden do not disqualify him from running for president and recounted how he used to play a game called “Open Biden” with her grandchildren. In an interview with Politico Playbook, Pelosi suggested Biden should join the “straight-arm club” and change his hugging style. She did not, however, address Biden’s well-documented practice of sniffing women’s hair, even total strangers like Nevada Democrat Lucy Flores.
  • ‘Pretend you have a cold’: Pelosi advises Biden on women

    As former Vice President Joe Biden’s camp scrambles to contain any political damage over his past behavior with women, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has some words of advice: Keep your distance. “Join the straight-arm club,” Pelosi told a breakfast hour Washington event on Tuesday. In other words, keep your handshakes at arms’ length and don’t be touchy-feely. “Just pretend you have a cold and I have a cold,” Pelosi said. Pelosi, D-Calif., told the event, which was sponsored by Politico, that Biden “has to understand that in the world we are in now people’s space is important to them and...

    Why Democratic Candidates Can’t See Themselves Clearly Ahem. In 2014, The Atlantic wrote a piece by Conor Friedersdorf entitled, “In Defense of Naked Joe Biden.” Friedersdorf objected to what appeared to be leaks from the U.S. Secret Service about Biden’s behavior when he’s out of the public eye. Author Ronald Kessler wrote in his book, The First Family Detail, that “Agents say that, whether at the vice president’s residence or at his home in Delaware, Biden has a habit of swimming in his pool nude. Female Secret Service agents find the behavior offensive.” Friedersdorf argued that what the vice president...

    And right now poor creepy old Joe is too old, too white and, well, not quite ‘woke’ enough to carry today’s progressivism to victory. He kept hinting that he was actually going to run and refusing to bow out. And to make matters worse, he quickly established a massive lead in the polls that continues to this day. But the Democrats don’t want an old white man winning the nomination again, so something had to be done. Trust me… this was no accident. It was orchestrated among some of the movers and shakers in the party. - Hot Air So yep,...

    The woman, Amy Lappos, said in an interview with The Hartford Courant that Mr. Biden “put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me for like 10 …. 15 seconds” at a fund-raiser in Connecticut in 2009.

    The spokesman for former Vice President Joe Biden has branded stories about his behavior as “smears and forgeries” in a combative new statement Monday - the third attempt in four days to respond to swirling allegations about his habit of touching women. “These smears and forgeries have existed in the dark recesses of the internet for a while. And to this day, right wing trolls and others continue to exploit them for their own gain,” said Bill Russo, spokesman for Biden

    Easily the most hands-on vice president the United States has ever seen, Joe Biden’s creepy old man behavior is finally catching up with him. After decades of snuggling up to, hugging, sniffing, and kissing unsuspecting, helpless women of all ages, the avuncular, gaffe-prone 76-year-old politician has suddenly come under attack for two such examples of unwanted touching that allegedly took place in Nevada in 2014 and in Connecticut in 2009. Lucy Flores, the Democrats’ nominee for lieutenant governor of Nevada five years ago, wrote an essay March 29 at something called The Cut detailing how she endured undesired touching by...

    In the wake of Lucy Flores' accusation of inappropriate touching by Joe Biden, Morning Joe has wrapped Biden in a warm embrace, metaphorically nuzzling his neck and planting a big warm kiss on the top of his head. On Monday's show, Joe Scarborough and former Hillary campaign aide Adrienne Elrod rose first to support good old Uncle Joe. Then came Mika Brzezinski with a more explicit defense of Biden's creepy behavior. Yes, Brzezinski acknowledged, Biden is "extremely affectionate and flirtatious." But it's in a "completely safe way." She suggested that Flores had misconstrued Biden's behavior, and ended by claiming that...

    <p>As I was taking deep breaths and preparing myself to make my case to the crowd, I felt two hands on my shoulders. I froze. “Why is the vice-president of the United States touching me?”</p> <p>I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified. I thought to myself, “I didn’t wash my hair today and the vice-president of the United States is smelling it. And also, what in the actual fuck? Why is the vice-president of the United States smelling my hair?” He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head.</p>

    Remorse for doing his job in 1991 is neither necessary nor likely to get him off the hook for being an old white male politician. After 27 years, Anita Hill is still waiting for a personal apology from Joe Biden. Apparently, the former vice president has yet to reach out for a private tęte-ŕ-tęte with the law professor who accused Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his confirmation hearings. But while Biden hasn’t been able to pick up the phone to talk to her about events from the fall of 1991, he understands that his connection to...
  • Lucy Flores isn’t alone. Joe Biden’s got a long history of touching women inappropriately

    03/29/2019 6:16:45 PM PDT · by Bigtigermike · 54 replies
    The media gave Biden a pass for years. It won’t in 2020. Flores’s experience isn’t unique. It is no secret in Washington that Biden has touched numerous women inappropriately in public. It’s just never been treated as a serious issue by the mainstream press. Biden’s been caught on camera embracing a female reporter from behind and gripping her above her waist, just below her bust. At a swearing-in ceremony for Defense Secretary Ash Carter, Biden put his hands on the shoulders of Stephanie Carter, Carter’s wife, and then leaned in and whispered into her ear. (He’s whispered into many women’s...
  • 'I WAS MORTIFIED': Former Democrat State Senator Accuses Biden Of Sexual Harassment

    Former Nevada Democrat state Sen. Lucy Flores accused former Vice President Joe Biden of sexual misconduct in a piece she wrote about a 2014 encounter she had with him that left her "mortified," saying she had "never experienced anything so blatantly inappropriate and unnerving before." Flores, a former member of Bernie Sanders’ political group Our Revolution, says that the incident happened as she was about to go on for a rally just days before the upcoming elections were held. "Just before the speeches, we were ushered to the side of the stage where we were lined up by order of...
  • Joe Biden Is Done

    Joe Biden is a creepy old goat. Everyone knows this. There is much photographic evidence of him crossing the line with women. He’s also a liar and a buffoon. But the Democratic party’s public-relations arm, aka the mainstream media, has never before had any incentive to hold Biden up to scrutiny. Why bother? When he became veep, any attack on Biden risked looked like casting aspersions on the man who made him his number two, and the media could not countenance any naysaying about the judgment of the Precious. For the next few months, though, we’re in an amusing interstitial...
