Joe Biden

Assault on America, Day 456: Trump and Pelosi don’t talk to each other. Is anyone bothered?

No one will lose sleep over the fact President Trump and Speaker Pelosi don’t speak and government will go on regardless of their failed personal relationship. In these trying times when we’re all searching for answers there aren’t any rules on political decorum. Trump will focus on doing his job, not pundit gamesmanship.

Is the Pandemic Killing Biden's Bid?

Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

How does Biden recapture the spotlight? If Tokyo recognizes it would be a terrible risk to the health of athletes and spectators to have people come from all over the world to Japan this summer, would it not also be an intolerable risk to have Americans from all 50 states and U.S. territories arrive for a week of mingling in midsummer in Milwaukee? For Biden to win this election, Trump must lose it. And the one way Trump can lose it is the perception on the part of a majority of Americans that he has proven an ineffectual president in America's worst pandemic since 1918. If Trump is seen as the victor over the virus, Biden is toast.

Assault on America, Day 455: Dems to replace Biden as nominee is best April Fool’s joke ever!

Coronavirus is proving to be no April Fool’s joke and neither are reports that some Democrats are plotting to remove Joe Biden as party nominee in favor of Gov. Andrew Cuomo or someone else. Speculation is fun but not exactly fruitful in times like these and the process will play itself out like it always does.

Tumbleweeds Greet Credible Sex Abuse Accusation Against Gropey Joe

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Like all the trash people in his trash party, Biden wanted to crucify Kavanagh over a patently ridiculous lie while posing as dedicated protectors of womenfolk. They all knew it was a joke, but who cares if you have to ruin a good man if doing so protects the ability to off babies up through adolescence? And now we have this, which may or may not be real but sure as heck sounds consistent with how this skeevy creep behaves and talks, and instead of believe all women, we get, “Nah, ignore the victims that hurt our chances in November.” Liberalism isn’t even hypocrisy. It’s just one giant lie wrapped in a scam and dipped in unadulterated bullSchiff.

Democrats need to recruit Obama to bench Biden, find another candidate

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Looking isolated and lapsing into occasional gibberish, Biden seemed ­every bit the mentally challenged 77-year-old he was on the worst days of the campaign. Although he did better on a CNN virtual town hall Friday, his tics, such as having a three-point answer to every question, do not inspire confidence that he is capable of being president. So what can Dems do? Find another nominee. But first, they must bench Biden, or persuade him to bench himself. It’s a job for Barack Obama. Obama could pitch withdrawal as a final public service to country and party. For all we know, members of Biden’s family share the idea and would welcome Obama’s intervention.

Assault on America, Day 454: Bunker-down Joe and the jealous media default on coronavirus

Amidst the 24/7 news cycle on coronavirus, not many people care about nor hear what Joe Biden has to say about leadership and the appropriate response to the situation. Biden could’ve easily taken a supportive role on the issue, but he didn’t. In contrast, Trump looks presidential and in command. And voters recognize the difference.

Mainstream Media Silent on Serious Biden Sexual Assault Allegation

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

1993 is when then Biden staffer Tara Reade says the senator assaulted her in a less-traveled location in either the Russell office building or the Capitol itself. What interests me here is the practically total silence of the media on this scandal that could sink a candidacy. Who can doubt that if this were about Trump, the accusation would have been around the world and back in fifteen minutes, probably less? And not just in red at the top of the click-hungry Drudge Report, but on CBS, NBC, the New York Times and so forth. What Reade alleges Biden did does not just disqualify you for the presidency. Nowadays, despite having occurred in 1993, it puts you in jail.

Joe Biden is Barack Obama without the fake Greek columns

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

For nearly five decades, Mr. Biden has been one of the great masters of Washington. Yet he is a blubbering disaster unfit for the national stage during a crisis. Unfit, really, for any stage during any time. He is Barack Obama — minus the fake Greek columns. Since the dawn of the Trump Dynasty, Democrats have manufactured ridiculous crisis after ridiculous crisis. Russian hookers peeing on a bed in a Moscow hotel room. Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh a serial gang rapist. Ukraine Kabuki impeachment. These people are fundamentally unserious. Totally untrustworthy. Genetically anti-American. Nothing reveals their unseriousness like an actual, true crisis.

Assault on America, Day 453: Joe Biden’s China syndrome will sink his shaky presidential hopes

There’s lots to complain about China in these difficult times, and as Mark Twain famously said about the weather, no one was doing anything about it. That all changed when Donald Trump ran for and won the presidency, and he’ll continue to hold Chinese leaders accountable for their complicity in the coronavirus pandemic.

Amid virus crisis, Biden, Democrats refine attacks on Trump

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The president's approval rating among Republicans, Gallup says, remains above 90%, while "independents' and Democrats' approval of Trump's performance has increased slightly since earlier this month, tying as the best he has registered to date among each group." It suggests political rivals might want to take care in how they attack him over the virus crisis. Some analysts attribute Trump's polling to a "rally effect" — that is, people instinctively supporting a leader in a moment of threat to the country. No matter what it is, it means that Democrats must search for ways to slam the president without offending those who wish him success.

Possibility of Cuomo Nomination by Democrats Rising by the Day

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

The likelihood of Donald Trump’s reelection has been rising with public approval of his handling of the CCP virus crisis hovering around 60 percent, a hitherto unheard of number for the controversial president. Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, on the other hand, has done particularly poorly, fumbling his “digital front porch campaign” in a drastic manner as detailed in a WSJ editorial. “Not ready for prime time” is only one cliché that seems to fit the rapidly-aging former vice-president. (If we have learned one thing from the virus, it is that nature can be cruel.) You think this hasn’t been noted by the Democratic powers that be?

Assault on America, Day 450: In COVID-19’s wake, fiscal sanity is demanded, not requested

States have the leeway to set their own guidelines on dealing with the coronavirus conundrum. Sooner or later the nation’s economic health must be given its due consideration, largely because Congress can’t keep assembling multi-trillion-dollar aid packages. The future has arrived and we can’t afford to dismiss it.

Assault on America, Day 449: Arrogant Dems ignored the ‘duty to rescue’ at their own peril

There is a duty to aid citizens when circumstances place them in positions they can’t control and they’ll suffer grave harm if actions aren’t done quickly to rescue them. In most cases help is a common sense call, something Democrats are either too arrogant -- or too selfish -- to understand. Americans are watching closely.

Of time and the Biden

Noemie Emery, Washington Examiner

Biden and aides have closed all their offices and are working from home. Worse still, the great sudden shift in focus and in concentration that occurred in the wake of the crash and the virus has also shattered Biden's stated reason for running. He was supposed to be the sane, civil person, running against a man who at many times seemed to be neither, who broke norms and commandments with gleeful abandon, and whom nothing and no one could shame. Then came the plague, something bigger than Trump. Biden would now have to be not only nicer than Trump, but also more capable of seeming in control without melting down amidst a crisis. Of this there has never been any proof.

Assault on America, Day 448: Has coronavirus forever altered Trump’s approach to politics?

Time and circumstances will reveal whether President Trump’s new, more restrained public persona lasts throughout the coming presidential campaign. Through necessity, politics has been placed on hold until the coronavirus runs its due course, which leaves a lot of folks wondering if we might’ve seen the last of the “old” Trump.

Biden slow to explain why he'd be quicker than Trump in tackling virus

Byron York, Washington Examiner

So what has the man who wants to be the next president, now confident of his path to his party's nomination, done? Not a lot. Biden is "largely out of sight hunkered down in Delaware," the New York Times reported. Biden did give a speech on March 12 to explain what he would do as president to confront the virus. But his plan was not much different from what the Trump administration has already been doing. And why did Biden let so much time pass without offering a comprehensive proposal for dealing with the crisis? Especially since his main criticism of Trump is that the president has not acted swiftly enough? In short, Biden has been slow to explain.

The Cleanup Crew for Biden's Flu Flubs

Tim Graham, CNS News

Every once in a while, the liberal journalists at PolitiFact grant President Trump a rare rating of "Mostly True." Recently, they verified a Trump tweet about Joe Biden: "During the 2009 swine flu outbreak, Biden made reckless comments unsupported by science & the experts. The Obama Admin had to clean up his mess & apologize for his ineptitude." The networks energetically circled the "news" wagons to protect Biden. They helped "clean up his mess." It's worth remembering that the media's coverage of infectious diseases resembles their coverage of every other potentially controversial topic. Verifiable facts are often secondary, and political spin dominates.

Assault on America, Day 447: Don’t let elites use coronavirus as the means to ruin America

There is no simple solution to the dilemma of who should be helped first in the battle against COVID-19. Many need aid and there’s only so much to go around. We should resist the ruling class’s drive to deprive us of our liberties, while being especially vigilant to preserve what made America great in the first place.

Assault on America, Day 446: Three factors that will determine the winner of the 2020 election

The coronavirus panic has forced America into uncharted waters and no one can say for sure where we’re headed. One thing for certain is the crisis will end and people will go on with their lives, perhaps with a new perspective. This year’s election is a long way away, with lots still to talk and argue about.

Biden’s Unpresidential Coronavirus Rhetoric

David Catron, The American Spectator

In a time of national crisis, a campaign must be accomplished without exploiting the emergency and appearing cynically opportunistic. Joe Biden has already committed this fatal blunder, attempting to exploit the outbreak. It’s just not a good look to stand on the outside with no responsibility and criticize the man tasked with solving the problem. The voters see it as cheap partisanship. And if the challenger’s criticisms are based on falsehoods, as are many of Biden’s, he is destined to be seen as a cynical opportunist exploiting a national emergency for personal gain. This is where Joe Biden is today, and it is most emphatically not presidential.
