And just like that, Biden was too old
The flop sweat of desperation hits the Establishment
Why are they suddenly saying Biden is too old to run for a second term?
The mugshot didn’t work.
There. That is the column. It is simple as that. Panic set in and our overlords will sacrifice Biden by throwing him under the Bus of Baal. They must feed the monster to keep President Trump from winning a third consecutive presidential election.
This week, the media in unison declared Joe Biden is too old to be president. Odd that they discovered this now because he has been a doddering old fool since suffering his aneurisms (plural) 35 years ago.
The Daily Mail reported, “New York Times and Washington Post BOTH run op-eds branding Biden, 80, too old for office with NYT raising specter of him dying before retiring like Ruth Bader Ginsburg.”
8 of the 45 previous presidencies ended in death — four died naturally (don’t gorge yourself on cherries, kids) — and the nation survived.
NYT had Ross Douthat do the deed. He was blatant in wanting Biden out because defeating Trump depends on that.
Douthat wrote, “Obviously, this is a column about President Biden’s age. But not only about Biden, because America has been running a lot of Buckner experiments of late. Consider the dreadful-for-liberals denouement of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s career, where nobody could tell a lifetime-tenured Supreme Court justice who had survived cancer that it was time to step aside and Democrats were left to talk hopefully about her workout regimen as she tried to outlast Donald Trump. And she almost did — but in the end, her legacy was reshaped and even unmade by a decision to stay too long on the political field.”
The fear of Biden losing and Trump replacing him like he did Ginsburg is palpable and a rare instance where Washington elitists are right.
The public’s overwhelming approval of Trump’s defiance in that mugshot signaled that the trials likely will backfire as well. We may never see any of the four trials scheduled for Trump because the elitists see the trainwreck a-coming, regardless of an acquittal or a conviction.
That is why liberals are testing before any conviction the 14th Amendment’s insurrection clause to keep Trump off the ballot. I doubt it will work in any swing state, even though Democrats control the supreme courts of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and a few others. Not being on the ballot in California is no big deal. Arizona is another matter entirely.
Douthat got to the heart of the matter. Trump threatens the tyranny of the bureaucracy, which Democrats and RINOs alike cynically call democracy.
The columnist wrote, “the Trump era has been one of those periods when providence or fate revenges itself more swiftly than usual on hubris — when the longstanding freedom that American parties and leaders have enjoyed, by virtue of our power and pre-eminence, to skate around our weak spots and mistakes has been substantially curtailed.”
What he is saying is the establishment — in which he rightly includes himself and the rest of the media — should run the country “by virtue of our power and pre-eminence.”
He promoted a Divine Right of those in Washington to rule us rubes.
But there is no virtue in power. Lord Acton said power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Hence, we live in a corruptocracy because we gave Washington too much power.
Fix pollution, we said. They shut down factories. There, fixed.
Help black people, we said. They discriminated against whites in affirmative action. There, fixed.
Save us from another 9/11, we said. The instantly created the Department of Homeland Security. There, fixed.
When the answer to every problem is the government, the government has an incentive to create problems. I am not saying the conspiracy theorists are right, but I do notice their batting averages are rising.
Over at the Jeff Bezos Post, columnist David Ignatius played poker and saw the NYT’s dump Biden and raised them a dump Kamala.
Ignatius wrote, “It's painful to say that, given my admiration for much of what they have accomplished. But if he and Harris campaign together in 2024, I think Biden risks undoing his greatest achievement — which was stopping Trump.”
By greatest, he means only. Biden is a one batter reliever like Obama, whose only achievement was being black.
The New York Post kissed the bottom of Ignatius, writing, “The eminent commentator, who has written for the paper under seven different presidential administrations, cites a recent Associated Press-NORC poll, which found that more than three-quarters of the American public (77%) — including a notable 69% of Democrats — think Biden is too old to be effective for four more years.”
Ignatius is 73 — or 3 years above the new minimum age for presidents.
An ineffective Biden would be a relief as the effective Biden just gave Iran $6 billion after bequeathing to the Taliban $8 billion worth of military equipment. Take heart because due to the sloppy procurement procedures of the Pentagon, those weapons likely are worth only $4 billion.
But he doesn’t make the calls any more than Obama did. Modern presidents do whatever the deep state tells them to do as the bureaucracy is on automatic pilot and staffed with thousands of Tony Faucis and Peter Strzoks.
Any president who gets out of line gets a lesson. As Chuck Schumer bragged, the intelligence community can get back at you six ways till Sunday. The second Bush found out when he ticked off the CIA. It was like the old Donovan song, first there is WMD, then there is no WMD, then there is.
Oh Valerie Plame, I call your name.
(An aside, the song got Donovan a songwriting co-credit on the Allman Brothers perhaps best and certainly longest song, Mountain Jam.)
Biden is getting the Spanish Archer, or as it is known by most people, the El Bow. The media is running a plethora of polls to prove the public thinks he is too old so the media can say Trump is too old.
But Trump is younger than Joe “81 Million Votes” Biden was when he ran in 2020.
Interactive Polls tweeted the result of one poll:
Quinnipiac Poll: Do you think ... is too old to effectively serve another 4-year term as president, or not?
Better job responding to a national crisis:
While the media prattles on about Biden’s age, it is as silent about Hunter as a crook when his accomplice is caught. Miranda Devine is an Aussie journalist who broke the Hunter Biden laptop story — you know, the story the media played down and the one that Bill Barr’s FBI paid Twitter to censor.
On Wednesday, Devine wrote, “What a desperately presumptuous act it is for the White House Counsel’s Office to blast out a memo ordering media organizations to apply the blowtorch to Republicans and defend President Biden in the impending House impeachment inquiry.”
During the 2016 campaign, I often referred to the media as Hillary’s flying monkeys. Under Biden, they are flightless parrots.
Devine said, “The White House memo insists there’s ‘simply no evidence that Joe Biden did anything wrong’ and offers as evidence that there’s no evidence quotes from a herd of deaf, dumb and blind RINOs, like Reps. Ken Buck of Colorado (‘The evidence doesn’t exist right now’) and Don Bacon of Nebraska (‘We need to have more concrete evidence’).”
Every time someone in the media says there’s no evidence, they mean the allegation is true, you just haven’t proved it to them because their eyes are shut.
As the evidence mounts, prosecutors finally indicted Sonny Biden — Hunter — not for corruption, but rather it is for owning a gun. It is a way to pretend that no man is above the law without throwing him in prison for 7 years for touching a cop for three seconds.
Connecting Biden to his corruption is verboten because if the feds start going after actual corruption, the District of Columbia would collapse.
Mocking his age is encouraged because the deep staters want to ease him out of the race in fear of his defeat. They then can use age to attack Trump because all those indictments are not working. In fact, that mugshot is tilting public opinion in his favor.
The public of course may matter little in the modern age of mail-in ballot stuffing and the prosecution of anyone who dares question the results.
But if we really didn’t matter, the establishment would not be trying to show Biden the door — without an indictment.
