Joe Biden won the first Democratic Party primary debate, y ni siquiera tuvo que aparecer.
Now, at his present political trajectory, Biden may end up promising to perform late-term abortions on transgendered Guatemalan migrants with his bare hands by the time the debate rolls around on Thursday. But really, all the former vice president needs to do to maintain his lead position is not turn completely insane.
Because while Sen. Cory Booker might believe that most Americans agree with the policy objectives of the Democratic Party, this is not a Democratic Party that anyone would recognize ten, or even four, years ago.
It’s unlikely, for example, that most Americans believe the United States should be an effectively borderless nation. Yet a whole bunch of Democrats on the debate stage this Wednesday came awfully close to proposing that absolutely no person be stopped from entering the United States—outside drug and sex “traffickers” (although one wonders how they propose we weed them out).
That’s around 144,000 migrants they would have let in just last month. A large number of these newcomers won’t show up in court to have their cases adjuicated, compounding an already growing problem.
There will be many more on the way because Democrats keep offering added enticement for thousands of Central American migrants to risk their lives, and the lives of their children, crossing deserts and dangerous rivers to enter an already overtaxed immigration system. While Democrats on the stage (and the ones posing as moderators) were busy blaming the horrific deaths of Oscar and Valeria Martinez on Donald Trump, they were ignoring the fact that hundreds of similar tragedies have occurred over the past decade, and, not that long ago, even progressive Democrats like Barack Obama were warning that this kind of anarchy was a killer.
So however poorly Republicans have handled the immigration issue, or however coldhearted you believe aggressive enforcement is, the idea that most Americans prefer lawlessness to some semblance of order is an untested theory, at best.
Do Americans really believe that abortion should be a right until the moment of birth, without any single restriction—all of it funded by taxpayers on demand? Polls don’t bear this out. When asked if she believed in any constraints on abortion, Sen. Elizabeth Warren refused to answer, dropping an array of platitudinous statements about reproductive rights instead. The other candidates, though, tripped over each other to claim support not only for unlimited “reproductive health,” but for “reproductive justice,” as well. Don’t forget state-funded abortions for “female trans” people, Julian Castro reminded the crowd.
That’s a lot of wokeness to shoehorn into one issue.
Warren had already dropped “Latinx” on the crowd—the gender-neutral alternative to Latino—promising to “fight” to take away the private health insurance all sexes. The senator was, however, unable to explain how she was going to come up with approximately 6.5 gazillion dollars needed to fund universal child care, free college, student debt cancellation, free health care, and the rebuilding of the entire economy based on windmills and solar panels.
To be fair, Warren was quickly made to look like a lightweight. Although nearly every candidate proposed abandoning our fossil-fuel based economy, Jay Inslee announced that the United States needed to adopt a new set of “organizing principles”—don’t worry, no one mentioned the Constitution—that would be propelled by electric-powered cars and such.
How much would it all cost? The mayor of America’s largest city, Bill de Blasio, explained that whenever anyone asks him how he’s going to pay for his quixotic plans, he just tells them there is “plenty of money,” the real problem is that it’s in “the wrong hands”—which doesn’t sound authoritarian, at all.
The Gen-Xy Beto O’Rourke, who had kicked off an entertaining arms race in Spanish proficiency, promised to fund “resiliency”—the cost unknown. The one-time darling of the media also promised that as president he would instruct his Justice Department to prosecute his predecessor for “potential crimes,” which didn’t even provoke a murmur from the commentariat, although it’s the same kind of rhetoric that elicits high indignation when used by Trump.
And every one of them live in gated, secured communities and/or have a security detail. Basically, they simply want the borders to only be around THEM.
“Donald J. Trump, I, President Puto O’Rook find you GUILTY of almost committing obstruction and thinking about paying less taxes 10 years ago. The sentence is listening to ME. Take him away!!” Yeah, some Democrats are THAT stupid to yearn for that.
Loved Big Chief Warren promising “common sense gun control” like universal background checks (restricting gifts of guns to family members or an individual selling their personal gun) and banning “weapons of war” (hint: anything that hits, burns, cuts or shoots has been a “weapon of war”), then pledging, after doing all that, to conduct research to see what works. I guess it never occurred to Wahoo Warren to do research FIRST, did it? No, because infringing on individual rights is the goal, not making society any safer. Liberal run cities and states all testify to that fact.
Now this is some funny stuff https://www.foxnews.com/politics/donald-trump-winner-of-first-democratic-debate
@kitt: Did you see Tulsi last night and again today on FOX? OUTSTANDING!!
@Richard Wheeler: Didnt watch the Democrats try to out commie each other. Told you I do not have cable TV, in fact the weather here so nice the Idiot box hasnt been on in a couple of weeks.
My little prince no longer needs the training wheels on his bike, you know real life.
Seems MSLSD deems themselves the ones to crown the next Democrat contender https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/biased-nbc-gave-tulsi-gabbard-the-ron-paul-treatment-in-the-first-democratic-debate.
She would command more respect than Hillary.
That look on Booker’s face when Puto began speaking Spanish like, “Hey, I wanted to be the most pandering, phony clown!!”
@kitt: Damn right she would—and a lot more than ol bone spurs as well.
She’s got my support.
@Richard Wheeler: Then I wish her luck, but the media has determined she will vanish.They cant have a first democrat woman president beat Trump and humiliate Stinky. Sorry those people are sick.
@Richard Wheeler: Like Webb, she hasn’t got a snowball’s chance in hell of getting the nomination. The DNC has already decided and it will either be a far leftist or a far, far leftist.
@Deplorable Me: I don’t know—there is something in those Hawaiian winds—Aloha
This young lady,an Iraq Vet, has the wisdom and charisma to make a run.
@Richard Wheeler: Anything can happen how much did we laugh at DTs chances and if it were not for the Media shoving him in the limelight and the DNC crowning rather than allowing the people to choose. Now the DNC says you cant even be a democrat without abortion with no common sense regulations.
I wouldn’t mind listening to a moderate Democrat with something besides socialism, debt and America-hate in their agenda. But, I want to see Trump finish the job he has set out to accomplish. I think he has earned it.
Last night there were sparks between Harris and Biden
Kamala Harris was born in 1964
She claims she was only the second class to integrate at the Berkeley public schools.
Actually the classrooms in Berkeley were already integrated in 1963 — before she was born.
She also was no poor little black girl Kamala’s parents were successful professionals. Her mother, Shyamala Gopalan Harris, was a breast cancer scientist who immigrated to the United States from Madras (present-day Chennai) in 1960. Her father, Donald Harris, is a Stanford University economics professor who emigrated from Jamaica in 1961 for graduate study in economics at University of California, Berkeley. She then moved with her mother at age 12 to Canada where she attended grade school and high school.
A liar and a home wrecker….
@kitt: Well, don’t forget, Democrats love liars and love being lied to.
@Deplorable Me: I hope those that are for Biden chastise the liar, it was a planned attack.
@kitt: Hell, they were all lying.
Who saw our liar and denier in chief with his comrade Putin today? Disgraceful. No way he gets a second term.
Blue “Make America Think Again” hats on the market
btw—I certainly don’t think Gabbard can take nom from Biden but she’d be a great pick for V.P.
Will Trump dump Pence for Haley? Believe it would greatly enhance his re-electability chances.
Did he tell Putin he would have more flexibility after the election?
How much more in taxes are you willing to pay so that illegals can have health insurance once they violate our laws of sovereignty, RW?
@Richard Wheeler: I think unless Pence has had enough his job is secure.
Trump asked Putin not to meddle he even asked please WTF does your media want? He did it right in front of them.
Listen to the screamers like at a feeding frenzy, Trump already knows no matter what he does the media will not make it sound good. Why try for them, he has his agenda.
I laughed hard https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=trump+tells+them+none+of+your+business&view=detail&mid=BA28C61786F6B500537BBA28C61786F6B500537B&FORM=VIRE.
Gabbard doesnt have a chance at VP or Prez the left hates the military and she cant tell us to many times, her go to word Service, dont do a drinking game on how many times she uses Service, you will die of alcohol poisoning.
So, Trump should not meet with world leaders? At least he didn’t promise Putin to be his subservient bitch, like Obama did.
That could not be more on target. It’s about time Democrats start thinking instead of just absorbing liberal propaganda and not questioning the contradictory lies they are told. Once they start thinking, this far, far leftward veer the Democrat party is taking will finally end. But, I’m not that hopeful.
Biden’s not looking too sharp. His speeches indicate he doesn’t even know what country he is campaigning to run; he describes conditions that no longer exist here. He’s trying to win the 2006 campaign; Trump has made all the problems that existed much better. But, then again, that’s his platform today; it will be totally different tomorrow.
@retire05: Cmon. Taxes are for the OTHER people. Only the wealthy will pay taxes while everyone else gets the free stuff. That additional $8 trillion a year will just magically appear.
@kitt: He was smirking like the clown he is. To him it’s a joke—His top advisors including CIA Director don’t think it’s a joke and neither do the majority of voters.
He’s still bad mouthing Mueller—you think that’s gonna work out?
What’s your problem with “Service?” I’ll drink to anyone who says it and lives it.
Pence wants to stay and be Prez in 2024–I think Trump dumps him for Haley to bump his miserable numbers with women and indies.
Well, it is obvious the left likes clown. Y’all had 20 of them to watch the last two nights.
But again, did Trump promise more flexibility after the election to Putin?
I think Mueller is in for a ride. There are questions he will have to answer, under oath, that he ain’t gonna want to answer.
Again, how much more in taxes are you willing to pay so that illegals can have health insurance once they violate our laws of sovereignty, RW?
@Richard Wheeler: SMIRKING! a face crime! Who else was a smirker, oh yeah that roton covington kid.
Yes still bad mouthing the crooked cop who takes 10s of millions of taxpayer dollars to hunt down non existent American Conspirators on phoney balogna evidence cooked up by the DNC and Hillary.
He will have to answer when he knew his lead evidence was cooked, his wingman Weissman was briefed on it before the charade began.
Its all a joke.
@kitt: @retire05: Have either of you ever heard any liberal explain what they think happened to the “mountain” of evidence PROVING Trump colluded with the Russians to alter the outcome of the 2016 election? They all seem just totally satisfied with the notion that it either never existed or it just suddenly evaporated the moment Mueller’s report came out. All those on those debate stages endorsed the “mountain” though undoubtedly they, like Mueller, knew all along it never existed. But, that “mountain” proved that the most disruptive action in the national repertoire needed to be taken against Trump: impeachment.
At least two elections have had Democrats running interference campaigns and trying to disguise it as perpetrated by Russians. We have to take CrowdStrike’s word that the Russians hacked the DNC; the FBI never got to do their own investigation and, apparently, wasn’t that curious anyway. We are, however, supposed to blame Russia for everything and blame Trump for not spitting in Putin’s face when he is trying to maintain world peace.
But, Trump’s a “clown”.
@Richard Wheeler: Tulsi is great, and I’m serious. I’m definitely interested in learning more about her.
Her corrupt party won’t let her anywhere near the nomination, however, so I hope she’s around in 2024. Even if she wins the primary, her platform seems closer to Trump’s than any Democrat would like to admit. She has my support in rebuilding her party into something viable for the American people to believe in.
Trump wins the popular vote and EC in 2020.
Indies are the reason he won. CNN tells you it’s because of nazis and far-right. That’s nonsense. Indies, the vast majority in America…me…voted for an essentially Independent President. He’s broken the choke hold by both the Dems and Reps, and that’s why we like him. And if you can actually shelve your partisan view, you can’t deny his real accomplishments.
That said, he’s paving the way for candidates like Tulsi. She’s on the ball.
We have to get away from treating the parties like they are the country. They are disposable. It’s we the people, not the two corrupt parties.
