Biden won't debate

The talking points are out and the trial balloons have been launched!

Boston Globe: "Have presidential debates outlived their usefulness? - There are better ways for the public to hear from presidential candidates. I say good riddance to the televised presidential debate."

The Atlantic: "Why Biden Should Not Debate Trump - The networks want their show, but to give the challenger equal status on a TV stage would be a dire normalization of his attempted coup."

Biden is free to make any decision he likes, but those who oppose Trump shouldn’t fool themselves about the way many voters will interpret a decision like that. If the 81-year-old Biden refuses to participate in debates later this year, many Americans will conclude that it’s because he’s too old and that either he or his staff fears what Biden would say, or how he would appear, over the course of three 90-minute presidential debates. Yes, Biden looked fired up in his most recent State of the Union address, but in the end, all Biden had to do was read off a teleprompter and pause for applause. Debates are much tougher, and the opportunities for gaffes and unflattering moments are plentiful.
My feeling is that the Biden camp has already made the decision not to debate based on the fact that they skipped the traditional Super Bowl interview and generally keeps Dementia Joe away from any unscripted moments.

Biden won't debate.

Extra - Althouse: "We're not supposed to read Biden's refusal to debate to mean that he lacks the mental capacity to debate. Frum and others will instruct us, repeatedly, in articles repeating the talking point."

Red-pilled Bill Maher

Fox News: "Bill Maher rips sanctuary city 'hypocrites' turning away migrants: Abbott, DeSantis 'called their bluff' - 'The things that came out of the mouths of the leaders of New York and Chicago and even San Francisco, were pretty astounding,' Maher remarked." 

Biden won't debate

NY Post: "Biden cheat sheet for Iraq PM meeting caught on camera — including instructions to ‘pause’."

Last week, Dementia Joe held an event with the Prime Minister of Japan and Joe's podium had a teleprompter set up (the PM did not).  Biden spoke from the teleprompter and then fell back on a binder to answer two questions that he got in advance.  Last night, he congratulated members of the U.S. military for actions in Israel and he couldn't get through this simple exchange without notes which he conspicuously reads as he's mumbling:
There are six jump cuts in this video that lasts less than a minute! This is the BEST that the White House could do? They couldn’t get the meds in time to jack up old Joe to give an address to camera, so we’ll just hand Grandpa some cue cards to read and try to pass it off as him just being “overwhelmed” with the sheer awesomeness of our military.
At every public event, Joey needs notecards, giant television screens, laminated binders and teleprompters.  When he strays from his crutches, Dementia Joe starts talking about meetings he had with dead Europeans.

Debate?  He won't debate.  Prove me wrong, Joe!

Day 1 in Trump's banana-republic show trial

Is anybody honest taking this travesty seriously?

Not the L.A. Times: "Why it’s hard to muster even a ‘meh’ over Trump’s New York criminal trial" - "But any voters who look beneath the surface are sure to be underwhelmed. Calling it election interference actually cheapens the term and undermines the deadly serious charges in the real election interference cases."


Reason: "Alvin Bragg Says Trump Tried To Conceal 'Another Crime.' What Crime? - The leading possibilities are all problematic in one way or another."

And Jonathan Turley says it's actually New York's legal system on trial:
Lawyers have been scouring the civil and criminal codes for any basis to sue or prosecute Trump before the upcoming 2024 election. This week will highlight the damage done to New York’s legal system because of this unhinged crusade. They’ve charged him with everything short of ripping a label off a mattress.

Just a few weeks ago, another judge imposed a roughly half billion dollar penalty in a case without a single victim who lost a single cent on loans with Trump. (Indeed, bank officials testified they wanted more business with the Trump organization).

Now Bragg is bringing a case that has taken years to develop and millions of dollars in litigation costs for all parties. That is all over a crime from before the 2016 election that is a misdemeanor under state law that had already expired under the statute of limitations.
Other than an expired statute of limitations and the lack of definition of an actual crime, it's an airtight case.  It's obvious there's one law for Trump and another for everybody else.

Biden won't debate

Hot Air: "News Organizations Push for Biden and Trump to Debate"
There isn't a lot of confidence in Joe Biden agreeing to debate Donald Trump at this point. Joe Biden can't get through a speech or press conference anymore. He has notecards from staff to remind him what he is doing and the names of the people he is dealing with. The notecards for a press conference include a list of reporters with whom to call on and their photos so Biden can recognize them. Often there are reports that the reporters submitted their questions in advance. That allows the staff to provide answers that allow Biden to just read the answers.
Dementia Joe hasn't had an official press conference since 2022 and it's been almost 300 days since he's sat down for an interview with a reputable news source.  (Well, it was MSNBC, but close enough).

Iran fails

Fox News: "US military shoots down 'dozens' of Iranian drones fired at Israel, as Jewish state air defense system excels - The interceptions occurred hours after Iran launched drones and ballistic missiles."

Either this was a performative show from Iran or Israel's Iron Dome defense is really that good.  Iran gets nothing from this attack and now opens the door for retaliation from Israel.

But did you get your $35 insulin?

Wall Street Journal: "Biden’s Green-Energy Price Shock - The cost of electricity has climbed by 29.4% since January 2021."
Do White House officials pay electric bills? They strangely keep saying the President’s climate agenda is reducing electric-power rates even as the cost of running your dishwasher is sky-rocketing, as illuminated by the Labor Department’s consumer-price index.

The nearby chart shows the average change in electricity prices over the last decade. Electric rates remained relatively flat in the seven years before President Biden took office, rising 5%. Thank cheap natural gas. Yet since January 2021 electricity prices have soared 29.4%—about 50% more than overall inflation.
Americans don't need luxuries like food and electricity.



Thursday, April 11, 2024

That's Bidenflation, baby!

Inflation never went away:
The 3.5 percent year-over-year increase in the Consumer Price Index — announced on Wednesday — is a reminder that President Biden’s most conspicuous failure has been that he broke the 2 percent ceiling on inflation that had been kept in place for the last 30 years.
I've never heard of "supercore inflation" before but, like everything else under Biden, it's worse than ever:
A hotter-than-expected consumer price index report rattled Wall Street Wednesday, but markets are buzzing about an even more specific prices gauge contained within the data — the so-called supercore inflation reading.

Along with the overall inflation measure, economists also look at the core CPI, which excludes volatile food and energy prices, to find the true trend. The supercore gauge, which also excludes shelter and rent costs from its services reading, takes it even a step further. Fed officials say it is useful in the current climate as they see elevated housing inflation as a temporary problem and not as good a measure of underlying prices.

Supercore accelerated to a 4.8% pace year over year in March, the highest in 11 months.

But, ya know, $35 insulin.

The Left hates free speech says [checks notes] Jonathan Chait

NY Magazine: "The Left-Wing Authoritarians Shutting Down the Democratic Party - Liberals would justifiably freak out if the right was doing this to Biden."

It would have been nice to see Chait come to this epiphany of liberal concern about the squelching of debate and censorship of free speech in a general sense, for all speakers.  But, as usual, the shoutdowns were just fine until they started to come for Dementia Joe.

Baby steps, I guess.

Straight into my veins

A veteran of National Public Radio pulls back the curtain and confirms every conservative's suspicion about the deep-seated bias there: "I’ve Been at NPR for 25 Years. Here’s How We Lost America’s Trust."

Some excerpts:
Back in 2011, although NPR’s audience tilted a bit to the left, it still bore a resemblance to America at large. Twenty-six percent of listeners described themselves as conservative, 23 percent as middle of the road, and 37 percent as liberal.

By 2023, the picture was completely different: only 11 percent described themselves as very or somewhat conservative, 21 percent as middle of the road, and 67 percent of listeners said they were very or somewhat liberal. We weren’t just losing conservatives; we were also losing moderates and traditional liberals. 
No kidding.
Concerned by the lack of viewpoint diversity, I looked at voter registration for our newsroom. In D.C., where NPR is headquartered and many of us live, I found 87 registered Democrats working in editorial positions and zero Republicans. None. 
Uh-huh.  Go on.
The laptop was newsworthy. But the timeless journalistic instinct of following a hot story lead was being squelched. During a meeting with colleagues, I listened as one of NPR’s best and most fair-minded journalists said it was good we weren’t following the laptop story because it could help Trump
Not only do I totally believe this story, I believe it's being replayed and replicated in newsrooms - large and small - all across this country.  Furthermore, like this "fair-minded" NPR journalist, I believe these people are willing parties to the fraud with a clear conscious because Trump.  Once you've convinced yourself that you're saving democracy, all journalistic standards fly out the window.



And this - Roundup from Instapundit.

"Are you kidding me?"

Here's Jonathan Turley in the NY Post: "Judge calls out blatant double standard when it comes to Biden’s Justice Department and Hunter"
US District Judge Ana Reyes slammed the DOJ for stonewalling Congress on the subpoenas while imprisoning figures like former Trump adviser Peter Navarro for doing the same thing.

The Biden administration has blocked the testimony of prosecutors Mark Daly and Jack Morgan, who were involved in an inexplicable decision of the Justice Department to allow major felonies against Hunter Biden to lapse.

In prior hearings, IRS whistleblowers testified that they had an agreement on the table to extend the statute of limitations on the crimes, but special counsel David Weiss allowed the period to lapse without any explanation. Since the DOJ was in the midst of plea negotiations, it made no sense that the DOJ would simply kill potential charges.
Remember that the Biden DOJ tried to sweep this whole thing under the rug with a sweetheart plea deal that was squashed by a judge who was paying attention.

Bringing on WWIII

CNN: "US preparing for significant Iran attack on US or Israeli assets in the region as soon as next week."

Conflict in the Mideast always leads to supply chain disruptions in the oil industry, so it's a good thing we refilled the Strategic Petroleum Reserve after draining it in 2022 for the midterms.

Overrun and overwhelmed

Wall Street Journal: "Why Immigration Is Now the No. 1 Issue for Voters - The topic—a weak spot for Biden—ranks as more important than inflation and the economy, polls show."

Heck of a job, Joey:

WTF is she talking about?

Outkick: "Big-Time Sports Fan Kamala Harris Says NCAA Women's Tournament Wasn't 'Allowed' To Have Brackets Until 2022."

Not only is this laughably false, it reveals Kamala's penchant for making sure every story she tells has a victim.

Biden ducks again

Hot Air: "'I Didn't Do That': Biden Gaslights America On 'Trans Day of Visibility'."


I considered this whole issue a tempest in a teapot and just an unfortunate coincidence.  But, as he is prone to do, Dementia Joe just simply declares that "I didn't do that."  Whether it's Afghanistan or inflation or speaking to dead foreign leaders or leaving classified documents lying around his garage, Biden will accept no criticism and evince no remorse.

Gas prices are heading north again.  Who will Biden blame this time?

Monday, April 01, 2024

Hot Air: "Massachusetts Looks to Ban School Suspensions."

I suspect that saner heads will prevail and the Bay State will not ban suspensions.  If there is no recourse for disruptive behavior in the classroom, it's going to degrade the education experience for every other student, and parents will start pulling their kids from public schools for charters or homeschooling.

AYFKM?

Daily Caller: "White House Bans Religious Easter Eggs From Art Contest"
The Biden administration banned children from submitting Easter eggs with religious themes for its 2024 “Celebrating National Guard Families” art contest.

The competition, which is part of the White House’s annual Easter Egg Roll, explicitly stipulated that egg designs not feature any “religious symbols” on the Christian holiday.
"No religious themes on Easter Eggs" is peak 2024.

NBC News confirms every conservative stereotype about the media

Wall Street Journal: "NBC’s Ronna McDaniel Tantrum - The conformity caucus chases the former RNC chairwoman off the air."
The tempest over Ms. McDaniel suggests the press is preparing to make the same mistake again. This is bad for the country, but it’s even worse for the press, which still doesn’t understand why it is so mistrusted.
This long march of the media destroying its own credibility and simultaneously wondering why Americans don't want to buy their product is fascinating to watch.  Enjoyable, too.

New poll numbers are in

Legal Insurrection: "Poll: 71% of Palestinians Support October 7 Massacre, Majority Wants Hamas Returned to Power in Gaza." 

Same ole same ole class warfare

Hot Air: "Democrats Are Still Pushing a Wealth Tax."
Paying more than the bottom 70% is what Democrats call "not paying their fair share." In any case, Biden's claim about billionaires paying an 8% rate is a lie which he has been repeated for three years despite fact checks from every major news outlet pointing out that this is very misleading. In all, he's made this dishonest claim more than 30 times.
As this article notes, Dementia Joe has been fact-checked on this false claim multiple times in multiple different news sources but he keeps on repeating it.  This is why he won't do media interviews anymore: the fear he'll be called out on his multiple, repeated, self-hagiographic lies.

Just like student loans, this is more of Democrats making promises they cannot possibly keep because they are unconstitutional.  But after they falsely raise hopes and then these actions are squashed as illegal, they'll declare "we tried but we were shut down by evil forces!"

Let it go broke

Reason: "A GOP Plan To Raise the Retirement Age Reveals How Unserious Washington Is About Social Security."
It's important to keep in mind that if you're someone interested in maintaining Social Security as a functioning program, the real threat isn't from proposed changes but from doing nothing. The trustees that oversee Social Security estimate that benefits will be cut by 23 percent starting in 2033, with further cuts needed in future years, unless policymakers make changes to the program's fundamental math.

"Virtually every serious person who works on Social Security policy knows the eligibility age must eventually rise higher," Brian Riedl, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute and expert on the broken math that is pushing America's entitlement programs into a death spiral, told Reason. "That said, partisan reform blueprints only attract partisan demagoguery and poison the well for reform."
Raising the retirement age for far-off retirees is one of the most anodyne reforms even though it won't stave off the immediate budgetary problems.  But even that is a bridge too far for both political parties.  Better off to let the automatic benefit cuts kick in and embrace the chaos.

Banana republic backlash

Red State: "Frank Luntz Hits CNN Panel With Reality - Says If NY Seizes Trump's Assets They Are Electing Him."

How many times can Krugman write the same article?

Via Real Clear Politics, here's former Enron advisor Paul Krugman: "What's the matter with Ohio?"

If you've read one Krugman article over the past year, you've read them all: Americans just don't understand how great they have it under Bidenomics.  They need to do their homework!  

This past week, the Federal Reserve held off on interest rate cuts because - you guessed it - core inflation is still too high.  Yes, it's down but that means that the cost of things is still going up, just slower.

Orange man bad - year 10

TIPP Insights: "The Left's Lies Are Powering Trump's Lead - Voters do not buy the Left's and media's lies about Trump anymore."


I can't believe that 1) we're entering an entire decade of "worse than Hitler" hysteria and that 2) the Left still believes this is going to work.  Trump lost in 2020 because it was - as I like to say - a "turn the page" moment where a lot of Americans wanted less Trumpian drama and to forget about covid.  What they got in exchange for that bargain is a United States that is worse off in nearly every measurable way, except for the stock market (which is artificially boosted by inflation.)  

David Frum said (paraphrasing) that if you call everyone who wants to secure the border a "fascist" then Americans are going to hire the fascists.  Americans are getting wise to the damage being done and no surplus of Paul Krugman articles is going to convince them otherwise.

That's Bidenomics, baby!

CBS News: "U.S. drops from top 20 happiest countries list in 2024 World Happiness Report."
Unhappy news for Americans: The United States is no longer among the 20 happiest countries in the world, according to new data from Gallup and its partners.

In the newly released 2024 World Happiness Report, the U.S. dropped out of the top 20 on the list for the first time in the report's 12-year history. The U.S. now ranks at No. 23, compared to No. 15 last year. 
Well, at least Biden can point to his successful foreign policy: "Biden Sets Record for Embassy Evacuations."

Another record!  How does he do it?

Yeah, that's not gonna happen

Here's a good question for the White House with the expected response:
Q Thanks, Karine. Yeah. When will the President hold another news conference so we can ask a question of him without having helicopter noise or jet noise in the background?

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: I don’t have anything to preview — to share. Obviously, the President — the President, as you just say- — as you were just saying, the President takes questions pretty regularly, enjoys having engagement with all of you.

I don’t have a press conference to lay out for you at this time.

Q But is there — is there talk of one?

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: I don’t have anything for you.
Dementia Joe can't do it.  In every public event, he is either tethered to a teleprompter, a laminated large-print binder, or cheat-sheet note cards.  A news conference without the questions in advance?  No chance.

A perfect example of the government "helping"

Reason: "Seattle Law Mandating Higher Delivery Driver Pay Is a Disaster - Just two weeks after the law went into effect, Seattleites had to contend with $26 coffees and $32 sandwiches." 

In other words, while the ordinance theoretically raises driver earnings to over $26 per hour—a number that ironically far exceeds Seattle's $19.97 standard minimum wage—drivers are barely logging any hours as a result of the drastic decrease in demand for food delivery. As one Seattle driver summarized: "It was dead. Demand was dead." A second driver put it more bluntly: "I've got nothin'. I'm not gonna sit here for hours for one frickin' order."

Great job, Seattle.  But good intentions, amirite?

So...more taxes

Here's the Boston Globe jumping into the fray: "How to fix Social Security."

I'll save you the trouble of reading: it's automatic tax increases.  And while the article hints at pairing tax increases with benefit cuts to bridge the gap, that latter measure floats away like a feather in the wind.

Friday, March 15, 2024

We simply cannot have an honest discussion about Social Security

In today's NY Times, their tendentious resident economist Paul Krugman writes: "Social Security and Medicare Are on the Ballot."

If you're accustomed to either Krugman's style or typical discussions on Social Security, you'll be unsurprised to find that this argument is long on emotional appeal and short on numbers:
All of this has, I believe, encouraged Biden and his officials to stake out a firm position opposing cuts to America’s social safety net — indeed, calling for increased benefits, to be paid for with increased taxes on corporations and high-income individuals.
Yeah, baby!  Is there anything easier than asking somebody else to pay for your benefit?  But as I've regularly noted: Social Security is (by law) a universal program that requires benefits to (roughly) equal the amount of money paid into the system (by law).  Is Krugman OK with Bill Gates receiving a monthly million-dollar benefit check?

To ask is to answer.

Even the Congressional Budget Office admits this would happen under current law:
Because Social Security benefits are tied to the amount of earnings on which taxes are paid, however, some of that increase in revenues would be offset by additional benefits paid to people with earnings above the maximum taxable amount under current law.
Also: how long would we extend the solvency of Social Security with these huge tax increases and unprecedented changes to the program?  Answer: 13 years until we're facing insolvency again:
The first alternative, which would increase the taxable share of earnings from jobs covered by Social Security to 90 percent, would delay the exhaustion of the combined trust funds by 4 years, until calendar year 2037. The second alternative, which would apply the 12.4 percent payroll tax to earnings over $250,000, would delay the exhaustion of the combined trust funds by 13 years, until calendar year 2046.
Having destroyed the universality of Social Security, what will be the next gimmick?  Do Paul Krugman and the NY Times even care?  Nope: we're just trying to get past the next election.

He lies about everything, all the time

Federalist: "Turns Out Biden Lied About Hur, Beau, And Why He Pilfered Classified Documents."

Dementia Joe had an $8 million payday coming for his ghostwritten book, so he needed those classified documents for his story.  Biden is on tape telling his ghostwriter to check out the classified material:
When Hur asked the president about the classified papers in his possession, the president contended that he “had no purpose for them, and I think it would be inappropriate for me to keep clearly classified documents.” But Hur, in his prepared testimony for Congress, says: “We also identified other recorded conversations during which Mr. Biden read classified information aloud to his ghostwriter.”
Looking back on Biden's hastily-assembled press conference on February 8th, it's now clear that almost everything he said was a lie:
Q    Mr. President, why did you share classified information with your ghostwriter?

THE PRESIDENT:  I did not share classified information.  I did not share it.

Q    With your ghostwriter?

THE PRESIDENT:  With my ghostwriter, I did not.  Guarantee you, I did not.  What the —

Q    But the special counsel said that —

Unraveling the cover-up

National Review: "Exclusive: Jim Jordan Threatens to Hold FBI Director in Contempt over Hunter Biden Laptop Story."

Here's more from the (paywalled) NRO article over at Ace:
"During her transcribed interview, Ms. Dehmlow revealed that the same FBI personnel who were warning social media companies about a potential Russian 'hack and leak' operation in the lead-up to the 2020 election knew that the laptop belonging to Hunter Biden was not Russian disinformation," the letter reads.

"After the New York Post published a story based on the contents of the laptop about Biden family influence peddling, the FBI made the institutional decision to refuse to answer direct questions from social media companies about the laptop's authenticity," the letter adds.

IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley, an IRS agent with years of experience on the Hunter Biden tax case, testified to the House Ways and Means Committee last year that the FBI verified the authenticity of the contents of Hunter Biden's laptop in November 2019.
They knew.  But tell me the story again, Papa, about how the government was almost overthrown by a bunch of middle-age guys with selfie sticks.

The 24/7 job of a Biden minder

I got a chuckle out of this scene from the NY Post: "Biden blames ‘eavesdropping’ media after Netanyahu needs ‘come to Jesus’ moment hot-mic snafu."
The president, 81, made the awkward comment about the Jewish state’s head of government while mingling with lawmakers following his State of the Union address — asking Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) to keep what he said confidential.

“I told him, ‘Bibi’ — and don’t repeat this, but [I said] ‘You and I are going to have a come to Jesus—’,” Biden began as an aide rushed over to stop him from saying more, exclaiming “Sir!” and whispering in his ear.

“I’m on a hot mic here,” Biden said out loud after the aide conveyed his message, adding sarcastically, “Good. That was good.”
Who would have expected that a guy couldn't have a private conversation in the well of the House of Representatives with a hundred people milling around?  Sheesh. 

Remember this classic moment of White House aide panic?

Desperate times call for desperate measures

Hot Air: "Are Price Controls Next?"
Joe Biden is getting desperate, and when people are desperate they do especially stupid things. 

In a move that should worry everybody, Biden's war on "shrinkflation" and "corporate greed" has him inching toward a regime of price controls.
The American Left is firmly wedded to the idea that everybody is a victim.  Sure, you may think you have the free will to purchase something at the price it is offered, but you're a fool.  You're being exploited...somehow.

So Dementia Joe and his team of flunkies are going to clamp down on "unfair and illegal" pricing.  How is setting a price as a seller "illegal?"  Dunno.

We're all trying to find out who did this, Joe

Reason: "Shrinkflation Is Real—and It's Largely Biden's Fault"
The wave of shrinkflation came in response to the rise in inflation the country experienced starting in 2021. I am baffled that the president would make such a big deal out of it now. The administration has been trying to fool voters into conflating the fact that inflation has tempered with the idea that prices are basically back to normal. It's not the case. While inflation has declined, the price of food is up by 20 percent on average since February 2021. Chicken and bread are up 25 percent, and rents are still mightily elevated.

These higher prices explain why voters continue to express plenty of frustration about the economy despite low unemployment, positive economic growth, and rising wages.
In the fight against inflation, Dementia Joe has enlisted the help of noted economist [checks notes] Cookie Monster to make his case and find out who caused this runaway price spiral.

Even Sotomayor

Legal Insurrection: "Supreme Court Unanimously Reinstates Trump to Colorado Ballot - “Because the Constitution makes Congress, rather than the States, responsible for enforcing Section 3 against federal officeholders and candidates, we reverse.”


I have to confess that I was wrong about Sonia Sotomayor who - in my opinion - reaches her conclusion first and then works backwards to find legal reasoning.  This has been my feeling ever since the disgraceful "bake me a cake" ruling.  I guess even this case was a bridge too far.

Otherwise, there is no shortage of "legal scholars" who let their Trump hatred override objective judgement of the Constitutional text and meaning.

Sunday, March 03, 2024

Here. We. Go.

I'm sticking with my original prediction that this will be an 8-1 decision with always-wrong Sonia Sotomayor beclowning herself again.

Ego and dementia

John Podhoretz in Commentary: "How can Biden stay in now?

I might have to buy the Sunday NY Times tomorrow just to read about the poll:
If you dig into the crosstabs of the NYT-Siena poll you’ll find that there are a bunch of questions they haven’t yet released the answers to but will (I’m guessing) on subsequent days to keep their poll generating new news. I’m guessing those unreleased numbers have to do with perceptions of Biden and Trump on matters of age, competence, and criminality. And given that the results in this poll dovetail pretty well with the recent NBC News poll released three weeks ago, the age response is likely to be devastating for Biden.
Ever since the Hur report, I've been saying that things are only going to get worse for Dementia Joe.  The economy is slowing, the impeachment hearings are uncovering some unsavory (if not illegal) details, the border is still wide open and yukking it up with Seth Meyers is not going to reverse perceptions that Biden can't handle an unscripted interview.

Excellent article

The Dispatch: "Ten Myths Sabotaging Social Security Reform - Distorting history and underestimating the severity of the problem only increases the chance of insolvency."

What's great about this article is that it doesn't pull any punches: there are no easy fixes (anymore).  

There's a reason for that

Huffington Post: "Why So Many Republicans Believe Biden Won’t Be The Democratic Nominee."

Here's the reason why: Democrats keep talking about replacing Biden.

The Left hates free speech, MSNBC edition

Jonathan Turley: "MSNBC Legal Analyst: Free Speech Could Be America’s “Achilles Heel
Well, the question is what “we want to do related to speech.” If it involves blacklisting, throttling, deplatforming, and bans, it most certainly does raise questions of censorship. Free speech is now portrayed as an existential threat to the country as opposed to the very thing that defines us as a free people.

McQuade captures the theoretical divide over free speech, though she is clearly voicing a view that is increasingly popular among law professors. She advances views of free speech that I have discussed in prior academic writings and the new book as “functionalist.” These views allow for greater trade offs between free speech and overriding social or political priorities.
I'm constantly amazed by the argument that speech should be censored for "misinformation" when anybody can whip out their phones to look up facts.  Defeat bad speech with better speech.

Now it's a crisis

Shot: "Gallup Poll: Biden’s Border Invasion Is Americans’ No. 1 Worry"

Chaser:
Q    Mr. President — Mr. President, you’re heading to the border on Thursday.  Why go to the border now, Mr. President?  You’re going on Thursday.  Why go now?
 
THE PRESIDENT:  I’ve been planning to go Thursday. 
Yeah, that's what they meant: why are you going Thursday instead of, say, Friday?  His brain has turned to mush. 

Who among us hasn't lied in a text?

Fox News: "Key witness in Fani Willis case testifies he may have lied in texts about friends' affair = Terrance Bradley claims he may have lied about once saying Wade 'absolutely' was in a relationship with Fani Willis before she hired Wade."
Attorney Richard Rice later asked Bradley if he makes a habit of passing on "lies about your friends." 

"Do you tell lies about your friends? About a case of national importance?" Rice asked. 

"I could have had, I don't know," Bradley responded. 
Convincing!  Bradley went from "absolutely" to "who can really say what 'sex in my office' means?"

President Unity tries to speak

PJ Media: "Biden Says 'I Wanna Get This Quote Exactly Right' Before Hilariously Failing."

And, you know, standing here in front of this portrait of the man behind me here, he — he said — and I want to make sure I get the quote exactly right.  He said, “We — the better angels” — he said, “We must address the counsel — and adjust the better angels of our nature.”  And we do the — and we do well to remember what else he said.  He said, “We’re not enemies, but [we’re] friends.”  This is in the middle of — this is in the — in the part of the Civil War.  He said, “We’re not enemies, but [we’re] friends.  We must not be enemies.” 
This "speech" (I guess) was during a dinner for the National Governor's Association.  The previous day, Dementia Joe gave an address that was noteworthy because he avoided his usual badmouthing of Republicans.

Have no fear, though.  Dementia Joe is doing a lot of campaign receptions and the "better angels of our nature" will be stopped by the Secret Service at the door so Biden can run through his enemies list.

Good question

Coincidentally, I just finished reading "Chip War" by Chris Miller, a 2022 book about the rise of the semiconductor industry.  After finishing it, I thought to myself: "I should invest in this industry" only to discover that every company related to the chip industry was already hitting new stock highs.  ASML, TSMC, NVidia - all of them are positively rolling in cash.

Why do these trillion-dollar companies need my taxpayer $$$?

It's MSNBC, so...

Power Line: "How dumb are these people?

Dementia Joe can't function

Axios: "Biden's cheat sheets at fundraisers worry donors."

On the menu today: No, it’s not the biggest deal in the world to hear that President Biden now uses notecards when giving remarks and answering questions at his closed-door, high-dollar campaign fundraisers. But considering how rarely the American public gets to hear Biden give off-the-cuff, unscripted remarks of any length and substance in any other venue, it’s an indication that Biden really is notecard- and teleprompter-dependent now. This means the usual advice that the president needs to get out there, interact with voters more, and make the case for himself and his policies is akin to asking him to demonstrate gymnastics or run a marathon. The guy just can’t do it anymore. And the White House would have you believe that he can keep going at it for another four to five years or so.
It's been a little over two weeks since Biden's disastrous press conference and despite the advice to increase public appearances, Dementia Joe has had no public events if you don't count clipped answers to shouted questions as he walks by. 

By the way, it's astonishing that Biden still needs notecards for these donor events since he simply repeats the same lines and anecdotes over and over and over again.

A modest proposal

Here's 538 pollster Nate Silver: "It's time for the White House to put up or shut up - Shielding Biden from public appearances might be a rational strategy -- and that's why it's a bad sign."
Here's what I'd propose. Over the course of the next several weeks, Biden should do four lengthy sitdown interviews with “non-friendly” sources. “Non-friendly” doesn't mean hostile: nonpartisan reporters with a track record of asking tough questions would work great. A complete recording of the interviews should be made public. The interviews ought to include a mix of different media (e.g. television and print) and journalistic perspectives.
Oh, man, this will never happen.  There's already a general acknowledgement that there won't be Presidential debates and frankly I think Dementia Joe is 50/50 for the State of the Union address.

The media shifts into CYA mode

National Review: "The White House Press Corps Discovers the Biden Age Issue"
They can’t say they simply hadn’t noticed Biden’s yearslong decline. No, that’d make it look as if they are bad at their jobs. Imagine that: a White House reporter who hadn’t noticed until recently that the president of the United States has struggled for his entire presidency, and even before then, to express a coherent thought.

They can’t say they ignored the issue for political convenience. That would give the game away.

Aha! They can tell someone such as Byers, anonymously of course, that they’ve struggled to cover the issue that everyone else has noticed and asked about since even before 2020 because — wait for it — they are just too damn conscientious.
How convenient.  When the media's self-preservation is on the line, they suddenly discover an issue they should have covered all along if they weren't besotted with bias.  And - bonus! - they get to justify it by claiming they were "struggling" on how to report the topic because they didn't want to be mean.

Biden broke the law. That's the headline.

Here's former federal prosecutor Elie Honig in NY Magazine: "The Real Biden Documents Scandal (It’s Not the Old-Man Stuff)"

Lots of good stuff but here's some key grafs:
Here’s the report’s biggest revelation: Biden held on to classified top-secret national-security documents after he left the vice-presidency, and he did it intentionally. This was no accident. Biden had those documents for this specific reason: He believed he had been right on American policy in Afghanistan (and that President Barack Obama had been wrong), and he wanted to paint himself as the visionary hero (and Obama as the heel) in the historical narrative. That’s why Biden shared some of their contents with his ghostwriter — though Hur acknowledges that Biden may have disclosed that classified information inadvertently, citing Biden’s “lapses in attention and vigilance.”

Here’s the single most important piece of evidence in Hur’s report: In a recording made by the ghostwriter in February 2017 — a month after Biden left the vice-presidency — Biden says he had “just found all the classified stuff downstairs.” That, folks, is the needle-scratch moment. Up until last week, the party line has essentially been, “Hey, classified documents are strewn all around the White House, a bunch of boxes got moved around, transition is chaotic, documents end up in various places; big mistake, whoops, sorry.” Now we know that’s untrue.
The part about Biden trying to prove that he finally got a foreign policy position right sounds exactly like something Dementia Joe would do.  

Return to normality

The Cash Queen

Federalist: "Fani Willis Is Daring You To Call Her ‘Angry’ Because Race Baiting Is All She Has Left" - "It’s a desperate, albeit rational attempt to distract from what the rest of Thursday’s hearing demonstrated — that Willis and Wade likely lied to the court about the extent of their involvement, as Willis’ former close friend attested, and that Willis also probably lied about receiving improper gifts from Wade, whom she retained and paid with taxpayer money."

Drillable hours

Ace has been absolutely all-over the Fani Willis story, so I have to throw this to him: ""Drillable Hours:" Some Thoughts on the Sweetick/Fani Gangbang of Lies - Update: The Judge Scolds Fani, Tells Her to Answer the Questions Posed With Fewer Histrionics Or He'll Strike Her Testimony."

There's one point here that just beggars belief: Willis would have us believe that she took lavish vacations and cruises with her paramour (who was getting fat stacks from Georgia taxpayers) and then she reimbursed him in cash.

Any evidence of withdrawals from the bank?  Nope.
Any evidence of deposits from these reimbursements?  Nope.

Fani said she took the cash her daddy told her to save for a rainy day from the stash in her home.  And then Nathan Wade would take that cash and add it to his big cash pile.  Sounds totally legit.

Biden will fight against release of the Hur transcripts

Is there anything that Dementia Joe won't lie about?   When I said "things will only get worse for Biden" I meant stuff like this: the Administration will fight against release of the Hur transcripts and it will only look like they're hiding something.

Because they are.

NBC News: "Biden attacked Hur for asking him when Beau died. That didn't happen, sources say."

President Joe Biden lashed out at Robert Hur last week over one particular line in the special counsel's report on his handling of classified documents: that Biden "did not remember, even within several years, when his son Beau died."

“How in the hell dare he raise that?” Biden told reporters in an impromptu White House press conference. “Frankly, when I was asked the question, I thought to myself, it wasn’t any of their damn business.”

But Hur never asked that question, according to two people familiar with Hur’s five-hour interview with the president over two days last October. It was the president, not Hur or his team, who first introduced Beau Biden’s death, they said.

The fact that it was Dementia Joe who bought up Beau is very on-brand for Biden who uses his son as a shield whenever he gets caught in a tough situation.  The transcripts and/or audio tapes will demonstrate Biden's confusion, therefore they must never see the light of day.

Mayorkas impeached

I largely agree with Rep. Ken Buck that this is an unconstitutional gimmick that does not meet the standard of impeachment for "high crimes and misdemeanors."  Now the Senate has to dust off the old (almost 150 years!) rulebook for a sitting Cabinet official.

But then Charles C.W. Cooke makes some salient counterarguments about the utter failure of this administration to "Take Care" that immigration laws are enforced.

Julie Kelly: "Why Joe Biden's Handling of Classified Records is Worse than Trump's Case" - "The report by Special Counsel Robert Hur reveals shocking details about Biden's sloppy possession of top-secret documents, the destruction of evidence, and possible attempts to thwart investigators."

Related - Volokh Conspiracy: "Donald Trump is the Victim of Selective Prosecution" - "Trump is the victim of political witch hunts by Democrats suffering from Trump derangement syndrome." 

I think most Americans have caught on to the double-standard here.

Biden's classified notes on Afganastan

 

Reminder: Merrick Garland green-lit the Hur report

The Attorney General in charge of the Biden Department of Justice could have redacted or held back the report, but he allowed it to be released in full:
Still, releasing it at all was Garland’s decision, noted Barr’s former deputy, Rod Rosenstein, particularly because Hur recommended no charges against anyone involved. Rosenstein noted that prosecutors regularly write documents explaining their decisions not to bring charges. And those documents are typically kept secret.

“Rob Hur didn’t issue a public report,” Rosenstein said. “He wrote a confidential internal memo. Attorney General Garland made the decision to release it.”
Yes, it would have created a political firestorm for the DOJ, especially with no charges filed.  But Garland released the Hur report without any redactions or spin as Bill Barr did with the Mueller report.

Listen to the New York Times, Joe

Red State: "Head Spinning NYT Editorial Admits Biden Incapable, Then Demands He Do More."

Here's the key graf from the NYT editorial:
The president has to reassure and build confidence with the public by doing things that he has so far been unwilling to do convincingly. He needs to be out campaigning with voters far more in unrehearsed interactions. He could undertake more town hall meetings in communities and on national television. He should hold regular news conferences to demonstrate his command of and direction for leading the country.
Please, please, please, listen to the New York Times, Joey.

Take it from me, somebody who reads the Presidential transcripts on a regular basis: Biden will not increase his public appearances for the simple reason that he lies all the time.  Dementia Joe will not place himself into a situation where he will be confronted with this congenital mendacity.

That's why yesterday I said "it's going to get worse" for Dementia Joe.  There will be increasing pressure for him to make public appearances (see: NYT) but he can't do it.  Every minute he spends on his extended Delaware vacation will only confirm the suspicions of Americans that he can't do the job.


They are telling you why right there

Columbia Journalism Review: "They gave local news away for free. Virtually nobody wanted it."
When 2,529 people were offered a free subscription to their local newspapers, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Philadelphia Inquirer, only forty-four accepted—less than 2 percent—according to an academic study set to be published this year in the American Journal of Political Science. 
Will we ever unravel this mystery why people don't want to consume the mainstream media?
One returned an invitation to subscribe to the Post-Gazette with a message: “[t]he P-G is an awful newspaper run by horrible bigoted people.” Other comments collected from the social platforms read: “no thanks! Fake News” and “GOTTA BE BAD FOR THE MEDIA WHEN YOU CAN’T GIVE THE CRAP AWAY.” 
It's an enigma.

By the way, the largest paper in Western Massachusetts has - as of this morning - printed exactly nothing about Biden's career-ending press conference.  We did hear about a 7-11 selling a winning lottery ticket, so we got that.

Prediction: 8-1

Jonathan Turley on the Trump v. Colorado case in the Supreme Court: "The “Unassailable” Theory Faces a Potential Unanimous Rejection"

I predict an 8-1 decision with Sonia Sotomayor doing her usual backwards-justification to craft a legal theory that just happens to meet her personal beliefs.  

And then there's MSNBC

Legal Insurrection: "Morning Joe Crew Lose Their Minds Over Special Counsel Describing Biden as ‘Elderly Man With a Poor Memory’ - "The Morning Joe crew on MSNBC has gone ballistic this morning. I’m seriously trying to find the words but cannot stop laughing." 

I sense a disturbance in the force

It's no secret that many on the right side of the political spectrum view the mainstream media as hopelessly biased.  So I was curious to see how CNN would spin Dementia Joe's primetime speech.

This seems different...




A fact check?  Of a Democrat?  What in the wide world of sports is going on here?  It appears to be a random act of "journalism." 

Here comes the clean-up crew

Townhall: "Liberal Media Goes Into Full Panic Mode Over Biden's Messy Presser About Special Counsel Report."

Dementia Joe didn't do himself any favors last night.  Oh well, it's Friday so you know what that means: escape to Delaware.

"Elderly man with a poor memory"

Well, I work all day, and I'm way behind on this story but here's the upshot: the Special Counsel looking into Dementia Joe's retention of classified documents reported that he "willfully retained" the documents, "disclosed classified materials" but that because Biden had "diminished faculties and a faulty memory" he could not be charged with a crime.

Simply unbelievable.  I've been calling Biden "Dementia Joe" for months and now the Department of Justice is saying the same thing.

Take it away Ace:




I just finished watching the video of Dementia Joe's impromptu press conference tonight (he did take questions!) and let me say this: it's going to get much worse for Biden.  I'm going to have to see the transcript but he was extremely combative with the press, pushed back on questions of mental acuity with the non sequitur of "look at what I've accomplished" and - worst of all IMO - took absolutely no responsibility at all for holding on to these documents and instead blaming his staff.

Somebody in the WH Press Corps tonight noted that Biden said "watch me" whenever there were questions on his fitness but since then Americans more and more think Joe is not up for the job.  Biden's response was weird, I think saying the press believes it but the American people don't.  It made no sense.

It's going to get worse for Biden because he's going to have to make more public appearances to demonstrate his mental and physical vigor, but he can't and he won't.

Tomorrow's the day!

ICYMI, here's Dementia Joe yesterday:
THE PRESIDENT:  Folks, you’re going to ask me questions.  Hang on a second.  I’m going to be back on Thursday, and I don’t want to prejudice what may be going on in negotiations now, so I’m not going to be answering any questions on this. 
 
I’ll be back Thursday to stand here with you and answer all the questions you want about this issue. 
I suspect that "all the questions you want" will be determined to be "two" by the White House.

Prove me wrong, Joe!
