Joe Biden as President?
« on: August 10, 2020, 05:21:06 AM »
I google Joe Biden this morning, having watched some recent footage of his car crash interviews, mumbled incoherent faux pas and disturbing behaviour. After all he’s the candidate for the Dems to beat Trump.

The results popped up on google search and every single link was positive, professional and endorsing. There wasn’t one single embarrassing link which is truly amazing given everything he’s said in the last few days.

In contrast I googled Donald Trump, you can imagine the stuff that came up.

Is this a fair reflection of the two individuals in the run up to the election or are we seeing more dishonest manipulation from MSM & social media platform handlers?

Here's a curious article I read:

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

Wall Street backs Joe Biden with millions in donations

Joe Biden’s campaign coffers are being bolstered by Wall Street donors who have decided that tax rises are a price worth paying to oust President Trump.

Despite more than three years of regulations being slashed and taxes being cut, the frustrations felt by many bankers and financial executives have forced them into Mr Biden’s corner.

Seth Klarman, a billionaire hedge fund manager, donated $3 million to Republican candidates in 2016 but this time has already donated that amount to groups supporting Mr Biden. “I’ve seen meaningful numbers of people put aside what would appear to be their short-term economic interest because they value being citizens in a democracy,” he told The New York Times.

James Attwood, a private equity executive who has donated $200,000 to a pro-Biden fund, said that business experts were particularly attuned to the failings of Mr Trump’s management style. “For people who are in the business of hiring and firing CEOs, Trump should have been fired a while ago.”

The Biden Action Fund, set up to attract high-value donations from Wall Street, raised $11.5 million in May and June. Overall Mr Biden has raised $44 million from the financial industry, dwarfing Mr Trump’s $9 million.

The fund’s donors include Josh Bekenstein, a co-chairman of the investment company Bain Capital, who has donated $710,000. James Murdoch, former director of News Corp, and his wife Kathryn each donated $615,000 to the Biden Victory Fund.

Mr Biden, 77, raised $140 million last month, slightly lower than Mr Trump’s $165 million. Mr Biden’s campaign said that 97 per cent of its tally came from grassroots donors.

The Democratic candidate’s pitch to his party during the nominating process was orientated around his “working-class Joe” roots in Pennsylvania. But having spent 36 years as a senator from Delaware, a small state whose affluent economy is powered by being a base for much of the credit card industry, he has longstanding ties to influential names in finance. Marc Lasry, a billionaire hedge fund boss and chief executive of Avenue Capital, organised fundraising events for Mr Biden during his first presidential run in 1988 and is still backing him three decades later.

Mr Biden has said he would raise the top rate of income tax, affecting those earning above $510,000, to 39.6 per cent. Mr Trump cut it to 37 per cent in 2017. Mr Biden would raise corporation tax to 28 per cent; Mr Trump cut it to 21 per cent from 35 per cent.

Mr Biden also promises a crackdown on multinational corporations with registered profits overseas.

I added a poll to see what our members think his chances are.

Joe checks off the Marxists and BLM boxes with Holla 4 Kamala while putting the Antifa anarchists on Notice... Bonus $$$ from Oprah, Hollywood, Silicon valley and the CCP embeds.

Trump super pacs are going to have to counter with ruthless Beijing Biden Traitor Joe and Marxist Hate Christians Kamala oppo research ad campaigns on MSM and social Media. Allows Trump campaign to contrast with rebuild post Covid USA positives and EOs if he can discipline his twittering. I know a big ask... Patriots need to focus on the get out the vote ground game as she was clearly Bernie's pick for VP.

People can give their opinion in a poll but others put money where their mouth is.

Biden has more donors than Trump and Biden has more donors in 26 States compared to Trump having more donors in 24 States. Biden has huge leads in NY and California.

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/07/24/us/politics/trump-biden-campaign-donors.html

But overall, Trump has outraised Biden by hundreds of millions.

https://www.npr.org/2020/05/20/858347477/money-tracker-how-much-trump-and-biden-have-raised-in-the-2020-election

In 2016 Hillary outraised Trump in ALL 50 States and outraised him by hundreds of millions. Seems like Hillary is a more exciting to voters than Biden.

https://www.opensecrets.org/news/2016/09/surprise-surprise-clinton-has-outraised-trump-in-all-50-states/

I think I'll make another donation to the Trump campaign before this is over. I got to get me another Trump/Pence bumper sticker since my wife stole the first one they sent me.

Wall St. is hedging their bets. 

Joe is a corporate sell-out and always has been and that's not going to change just b/c he's singing a 'progressive' tune to get elected.  2/3 of his voters don't like him, but they HATE Trump (compared with 2/3 of Trump voters support him, and 1/3 who realize that Biden will be a DISASTER.)

If Biden wins, it's going to be a bit 'Lord of the Flies' over here, and Wall St - a popular target for the Loser Leftwaffe - is buying "riot insurance."

Since the Marxist Socialist Media (MSM) is flooding the airways with the DemoMarxist Snoozarama to try and make them look moderate instead of the far-left Marxist Communists they are - I was treated to none other than Turncoat Benedict Arnold of today Colin BLM Take a Knee Powell - former Affirmative Action Joint Chief of DoD Staff endorsing Beijing Biden in the most glowing terms.

Powell is now a complete TRAITOR for endorsing a man who arranged $1.5 Billion dollar CCP Bank Communist Red Freaking Chinese bribes via his Coke Head rippah banging son Hunter.

The payoff for the Chinese:

$500 Billion a year trade surpluses for 8 Obama-Biden Years total $4 Trillion

Allowed to build multiple South China Seas islands with Airfields and offensive missiles and seize 200 Mile Exclusive Economic Zones around each for Oil, Fishing and Mineral Rights - Value Priceless

Biden took point to allow 300+/- Communist Red Chinese controlled Companies to raise $3 Trillion dollars on NYC Capital Markets without complying with GAAP Accounting and Transparency standards which would get any US CEO CFO and Board prosecuted by the SEC and DOJ. This allowed the Red Chinese to literally vacuum up cash that would have otherwise gone to innovative US Companies and eliminated at least twice $6 Trillion in new wealth creation in the USA.

Globalist (Powell) High Phocking Treason... And the MSM and Dems Marxist Socialists want 8 more years of this... The Red Chinese will be building industrial parks in the USA and importing Chinese Slave laborers to work in them as replacements for Heritage Americans.  Of course Music to Manny's ears.  More CCP factories for him to buy from.

Time to Arm up and Ammo up men.

“Allowed” by whom? The US? It may come as news to you that you don’t own the South China Sea. The clue might be in the middle word of its name.

The Red Chinese will be building industrial parks in the USA and importing Chinese Slave laborers to work in them as replacements for Heritage Americans.  Of course Music to Manny's ears.  More CCP factories for him to buy from.

You’d rather they used local Mexican or underclass black slave labour, right? Like other companies in the home of the free? And what on earth is a “heritage American”? A white bloke? A red indian?

Wait a minute, isn’t one of your biggest companies Apple? Where do they manufacture again? Oh yes, China. Would Cletus from Idaho assemble your phone as diligently as Mr Wong? Probably not, that is why he didn’t.

Would be amusing to know what Mr. Wong provides from his income for his family. Somehow I think Cletus is paid just a bit more and provides more.

Yes Cletus's expenses are higher, but most likely he is not in fear of the government and its police. Well unless he is passing forged ten dollar notes and higher than Empire State building.

The fact is no one is moving to Biden. No one is saying “Sure, I love Trump’s leadership in foreign policy, his rebuild of the military, his ending endless wars, his tax cuts, the economy, the regulatory reform, the protection of speech, religious and gun rights, and the conservative judges, but, you know, then The Atlantic came along and assured us that four anonymous sources implied that Trump was insufficiently reverent toward some guys who were in World War I and now I have no choice but elect the Marxist marionette who can’t keep his fingers to himself.”

No one.

The part about Russians approaching US territory ..   May be they are less 'professional' and try it on more, but reading the UK Daily Mail, one would think RU Bear Bombers were approaching London ..or the smoky old Admiral Smith ( Kuznetsov) was going to blockade the Dover Straits .

They need a bogeyman to distract the voters from all the domestic problems. And so they can convince themselves that the whole home of the brave and land of the free nonsense is true.

So a reliable narrative is Russia/China/North Korea/Muslim Other is poised to invade the US/US interests/places Americans couldn’t find on the map, etc. The fact that none of these countries invade anywhere isn’t really a thing. It’s good old 1984 programming. Proper Airstrip One stuff.

To support this we need easy-to-remember phrases: MAGA/war on drugs/axis of evil/Russian aggression/war on terror, etc. As long as good old Uncle Sam is fighting the “bad guys”, Cletus in Idaho will vote how he is told.

Whichever pensioner wins, nothing will change. The power comes from behind the throne and is a constant.

Domestically, things were pretty ok, pre-virus.  The Dems have to whoop it up among the downmarket section of voters how they should be rich but evil rich people somehow "stole" from them.  That and how the police hate blacks, yada-yada.  Never mind that, in 2016, 18 unarmed blacks were killed by police, while 23 blacks were killed by constipation, meaning that blacks were >25% more likely to die from a turd that took the wrong angle than by police.

So a reliable narrative is Russia/China/North Korea/Muslim Other is poised to invade the US/US interests/places Americans couldn’t find on the map, etc. The fact that none of these countries invade anywhere isn’t really a thing.

South Ossetia called.  Ukraine is on line 2.   :chuckle:

Whichever pensioner wins, nothing will change.

You might want to re-think that.  Trump the "INSANE WAR MONGER BENT ON DESTROYING THE WORLD!!!" has used the military basically twice: first he bombed a runway in Syria, and second, he vaporized an Iranian general (who temporarily rose to 4th in the Democratic Primary Polls as as a result.)

Biden, meanwhile, has never met a war that he didn't vote for.  So if you are anti-US intervention, then Trump is clearly the better "pensioner".
