Back in January, well before the Democratic primary race had taken on its current composition, independent journalist Ruth Ann Oskolkoff reported that a source had heard from high-level Democratic Party insiders that they were planning to install Joe Biden as the party’s nominee, and to smear Bernie Sanders as a Russian asset.

“On January 20, 2020 at 8:20 p.m. PDT I received a communication from a reliable source,” Oskolkoff wrote. “This person had interactions earlier that evening with high level party members and associates of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) who said that they have now selected Biden as the Democratic Party nominee, with Warren as the VP. They also said the plan is to smear Bernie as a Russian asset.”

Now, immediately before Super Tuesday, we are seeing establishment candidates Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar drop out of the race, both of whom, along with former candidate Beto O’Rourke, are now suddenly endorsing Biden. Elizabeth Warren, the only top-level candidate besides Sanders who could be labeled vaguely “left” by any stretch of the imagination, has meanwhile outraged progressives by remaining in the race, to the Vermont senator’s detriment.

The day before Super Tuesday also saw The Daily Beast, whose corporate owner IAC has Chelsea Clinton on its board of directors, publishing an article titled “Kremlin Media Still Like Bernie, ’Cause They Love Trump” which aggressively smears Sanders as a tool of the Kremlin.

This latter development is becoming a conspicuously common line of attack against Sanders and, while we’re on the subject, also tracks with a prediction made by journalist Max Blumenthal back in July of 2017. Blumenthal told Fox’s Tucker Carlson that “this Russia hysteria will be re-purposed by the political establishment to attack the left and anyone on the left–a Bernie Sanders-like politician who steps out of line on the issues of permanent war or corporate free trade, things like that–will be painted as Russia puppets. So this is very dangerous, and people who are progressive who are falling into it need to know what the long-term consequences of this cynical narrative are.”

So we’re seeing things unfold exactly as some have predicted. We’re seeing the clear frontrunner smeared as a tool of Vladimir Putin, accompanied by a deluge of op-eds and think pieces from all the usual warmongering mass media narrative managers calling on so-called “moderates” to rally around the former Vice President on Super Tuesday.

Sanders has not been pulling in anywhere near the numbers he’d need to pull to prevent a contested convention. This means that even if he gets more votes than any of his primary opponents, party leaders can still overrule those votes and appoint Biden as their nominee to run against Trump. Establishment spinmeisters as well as all Sanders’ primary opponents have been working to normalize this ahead of time.

The only problem? Biden’s brain is turning into sauerkraut.

There are two new clips of video footage making the rounds today, one featuring Biden at a rally telling his supporters that tomorrow is “Super Thursday”, and another featuring the former VP saying (and this is a direct quote), “We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women created– by the– you know, you know the thing.”

I’ve written about Biden’s recent struggles to form coherent sentences before, and it seems to be getting worse. There’s simply no comparing the befuddled, fuzz-brained man we see before us today with the sharp, lucid speaker we were seeing even a few years ago. The man’s brain does not work.

And yeah, it’s unpleasant to have to keep pointing this out. I’m not loving it myself. I resent Biden’s handlers and the Democratic Party establishment for making it necessary to continually point out an old man’s obvious symptoms of cognitive decline. But it does need to be pointed to, and it’s creepy and weird that they’re continuing to prop up this crumbling husk of a man while pretending that everything’s fine.

Not that Biden would be an acceptable leader of the most powerful government on earth even with a working brain; he’s a horrible war hawk with an inexcusable track record of advancing right-wing policies. But even rank-and-file Americans who don’t pay attention to that stuff would plainly see a man on the debate stage opposite Trump who shouldn’t be permitted near a pair of scissors, much less the nuclear codes. And Trump will happily point that out.

It’s been obvious since 2016 that the Dems were going to once again sabotage the only candidate with a chance of beating Trump in favor of a scandalously inappropriate candidate, but wheeling out an actual, literal dementia patient for the role is something not even I would have imagined.

2020 is weird, folks. And it’s going to get a whole lot weirder. Buckle up.

  1. Please say it is not so!
    By the looks of it, Democrats might just pull it off. After Super Tuesday, it appears that Trump will have another perfect foil for his message in 2020. Former Vice President Joe Biden has regained his place as the Democratic frontrunner after a successful showing on Tuesday, thanks in large part to party elites, and some of his former rivals, quickly consolidating around his campaign the day before. Though the race is far from over, Biden is now well-positioned to win the nomination. By selecting Biden, Democrats will effectively let Trump and his deeply corrupt administration off the hook yet again. This article can be read here:

    Another recent “gaffe”, from February 24: “My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden.”

  3. Although I’m a Bernie supporter, I must admit that, for a “Dementia-Addled Warmonger,” Joe delivered an articulate, almost flawless 13-minute victory speech on Tuesday evening. I admit that I was expecting Joe to stumble over his words.

    The question is, can he maintain that level of lucidity for the duration?

    Caitlin, any insights to share on Joe’s reasonably fluent victory speech?

    Watch Biden’s speech on You Tube at (Watch Joe Biden’s Speech On Super Tuesday | NBC News).

    1. And we totally believe you, because Bernie supporters are always on here cheering for the other candidates.

    It doesn’t matter if Biden has senile dementia. He doesn’t need to do a thing. Every morning during the PDB — President’s Daily Brief — the CIA will say him what nations and populations are to be sanctioned, starved, terrorized, overthrown, or bombed that day. He only has to sign the orders.

    1. Tim Shorrock (The Nation), Mar 3, 2020:
      “Ah, the CIA endorsement.”
      > John O. Brennan, Mar 2, 2020:
      > Joe Biden is one of the most honest, decent, practical, & experienced individuals with whom I have ever worked. If nominated & elected, he is capable of unifying our country & restoring America’s standing around the world.

  5. My summary of Caitlin’s article: the same old oligarchy will continue to rule with financial clout from Big Money and Big Business, using MSM to confuse and frustrate the masses.

  6. Dems support for Biden is stealing from the Repugnant’s playbook. Bush Jr. Reagan. Trump. What do they all have in common? Defective mental capabilities. Why do party insiders choose the mentally defective Repugnant candidate time after time? Because the fall guy knows essentially nothing if things go awry, and all the real criminals who manipulated from behind the moron’s shadow can walk away. The Repugnant party can also distance itself from a distasteful President next time around. Notice how every negative article states that Trump is attacking Iran, or cutting taxes for the rich… Do you think that Trump is actually thinking up these things and putting them into play? Hes way to selfish and lazy to do that! His “people” are doing it, and present him with a little list to choose from so he feels like hes making decisions. His people are the Repugnant party big influencers. Same as it was under Bush Jr, same as it was under Reagen. Now the Dems are doing it.

  7. Many dissidents know that the political system and so-called democratic process are part of mass brain-washing and population control. Agents of the “establishment” have an easy task using Big Money to misinform and indoctrinate. Most dissidents and protestors are relatively complacent with their circumstances and inadvertently (usually indirectly) support the status quo which they so aggressively criticize. Where is the plan for effective revolutionary action we need to clear the way for a brave new world? The strategy must end up eliminating sociopaths and the power of BIG Money or else we merely get back to the same old dirty tricks when one corrupt oligarchy is overthrown and replaced with another corrupt oligarchy. Effective revolutionary action requires activists to link up and synergize with other activists, then network with more teams of activists. Read more of this here:

  8. Commenter Robin recently wrote something important with which I totally agree:
    ” He is running for immunity and to cover up the criminal mess of the upper eschalons of both parties.”
    Biden has been walking around all of DC’s hallowed halls of political power for a very, very long time; was the VP for a long time during a period of time when O’bomb’em was committing world-wide war crimes galore; was the “point man” for the US-conducted, funded Ukraine coup, etc. etc. Demented Old Joe’s sauerkraut-filled skull (as well as some bank safe-deposit boxes) still contains an encylopedia of dirt on powerful US VIPs of BOTH parties. Those types of IOUs tend to hang around in the kraut for a very long time.
    It is obvious to me that Crazy Joe may have given the DNC Elite an ultimatim — “either you support me and my son in every way imaginable, or I’ll do what Trump has so far been unable to accomplish — drain the swamp — maybe even empty the Congress, DoJ, FBI, CIA, etc. etc. of some of their upper echelon VIPs”. In other words, “I may go down, but I’m going to take a whole lot of you and maybe your children with me. I’ll be singing some very popular songs on Twitter, Facebook, the MSM and the alternative media, too”.
    Have you noticed that Nancy and Chuck and Adam have been amazingly, uncharacteristically quiet lately? I believe that that is because their enemy is, for the moment, anyway, Sanders, not the Tangerine Jackass sitting in the Oval Orifice. Of course the Tangerine realizes this, probably reveling in the absurdity of it all — the DNC having to support and endorse a feeble, brain-dead old man, while at the same time trying to destroy a D candidate who may actually give him a run for his money.
    Quite a thing to behold.

  9. Maybe the Russiagate smears will put Sanders into the white house. Trump was an underdog until the bosses started calling him Putin’s puppet, and now he is the POTUS.

  10. In much of America, it is Super Tuesday. A lot of Americans can vote on who will be the next President.
    To those who stood up to the oligarchs and voted for Bernie Sanders, I thank you. We can win, together.
    To those of you who don’t vote, the oligarchs thank you. The oligarchs didn’t have to spend to sway your vote. And they didn’t have to spend to sway another vote to counter your vote. When someone who does not naturally support the oligarchs refuses to vote, then that’s a 2 for 1 deal for the oligarchs because they save double the money they would normally spend on mind control techniques to counter democracy.
    Again, thank you to all who were willing to stand up to the oligarchs today by voting for Bernie Sanders.

    1. Lol. Another dreamer.

    I do not understand the interest in an election process anywhere in the Western world. What purpose can we have as people who do not belong to the ruling elites in this process?

    And remember the elections are organized by the same people who were behing 9/11, this sad event being what Sir Thomas More described this way in his famous book “Utopia”:

    “devise all the ways and arts they (the rich, the elites) can find out; first, that they may, without danger, preserve all that they have so ill-acquired, and then, that they may engage the poor to toil and labour for them at as low rates as possible, and oppress them as much as they please”

    No doubt elections fall also in this category of event.

    And it is becoming worst because we are in the return of the days of Noah just before the Second Coming of Jesus and I pray the Rosary to hasten His glorious return, which return is imminent, because I have seen more than enough of all the bullshit.

    1. The oligarchs thank you for not voting.
      And, on that ark, there were probably a lot of animals who were saying “dang, I should have voted. I should have participated more in the world. But I didn’t, so now I’m a refugee on an ark stuck with someone I didn’t choose as the only possible mate left on earth. Gawd, I wish I’d voted and participated more in the world before it was destroyed.’

        It is difficult in our days, which are the return of the days of Noah just before the Second Coming of Jesus, to make people understand how things work. So I pray the Rosary to hasten His return because I am more than fed up.

        1. Praying the Rosary does nothing to change the world. We need effective revolutionary action to clear the way for a brave new world.

      That’s what the corporate(MSM) media and ‘establishment’ has been seriously trying to avoid. It most assuredly will come up in a run against Trump. Pop some tasty popcorn, sit back, and watch the show.

      I’ll believe that when I see it. The hearings should take place, but so many politicians from both sides of the Uniparty, are so filthy dirty with Ukraine that the Senate won’t want to air the dirty laundry and out them all.

  14. Quote of the Day
    Quote of the Millennia?
    Hillary Clinton regarding the primaries:
    “Let’s follow the rules”

    1. Donna Brazile got into the spirit of things following Hillary’s hypocrisy-for-the-ages quote.
      Donna fell short but it was a good try.
      Talking about Republicans Donna said, “They don’t have the kind of democracy that we see on the Democratic side.” (insert laugh track here)
      Also, as you may recall Donna Brazile wrote a kiss-and-tell book about when she became temporary head of the DNC after sleaze-bag Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned. Donna told of how she soon learned that Hillary had secretly bought ownership of the DNC.
      Donna Brazile is also the one that infamously gave Hillary debate questions.
      In case the first quote was not memorable enough to compete with Hillary Donna continued with a “Russia Russia Russia everything Russia” hysteria fodder.
      If you criticize Democrats, Donna tells us, then you are using a Russian talking point.
      And you are sowing division, “so go to hell”.
      “And for people to use Russian talking points to sow division among Americans — that is stupid,” Donna continued.
      And then to make it clear that Democrats don’t limit themselves to hypocrisy and hysteria feeding frenzies
      Donna directed this at Ronna McDaniel the RNC chairwoman:
      “So Ronna, go to hell!”

  15. Its obvious to me that Israeli intelligence is making a bold move and has captured both parties. We will get a huge coverup of the Epstein, Weinstein, and Awan spy and blackmail tapes and control files. We will see the US ruined by war against the perceived enemies of Israel. We will see the whole middle east turned into an exploitable chaos, with immense suffering, and more immigration of those fleeing war and starvation.

    Joe Biden is the congressman most culpable for the financialization of the economy (remember, FIRE sector used to be 4% of the economy, now its over 40%), and has made Delaware a top destination for laundering hot money. He is running for immunity and to cover up the criminal mess of the upper eschalons of both parties.

    Trump was put into place to take us to war for Israel. See F William Engdahl´s analysis in november of 2016, shortly after the election.

    Rise up, vote Bernie/Tulsi, and demand the Epstein tapes be made public. Half at least of Congress has control files, as well as large parts of the deep state. If you don’t, you are complicit.

    We need a plan B, because the DNC is stealing the primary again, and those machines are rig gable in the extreme. If we let the system roll over us, we will get to choose one unstable zionist controlled old fart or another.

    1. Lol. Such good reasons to vote against Bernie Sanders.

  16. Just in case you were under the delusion that your vote means a Mother Fing thing. Well, I suppose it does though. If you vote, it means you are willing to acquiesce to the authority of one of the offered sociopaths, or the other. I refuse to participate, and do not accept the authority of either. Dare you make a rational argument that anarchy would not be an improvement?

    1. No food. No utilities. No healthcare. Death destruction mayhem. Yes so much better.

    2. The oligarchs don’t want you to vote.
      The big problem the oligarchs have is trying to maintain an illusion of democracy in a society where if everyone voted in their own self interest then they lose 99 to 1. The oligarchs thus have to spend billions of dollars in mind control techniques to convince people to vote pro-oligarch. This is expensive, and these are the tightest, cheapest, spinthrifts in the world, so they don’t want to spend those billions. But they have to. Otherwise, they lose 99 to 1.
      If you don’t vote, you save the oligarchs the money they would normally spend trying to brainwash you into voting for them. Plus, they save the extra money that they’d have to spend brainwashing others to counter your vote.
      The oligarchs love it when you don’t vote.
      Notice how no one who tells you not to vote ever gives a concrete plan of how things will change. Its just nonsense about how casting a vote to try to change things is really in some weird way “acquiescence” with oligarch rule. When the only real act of acquiescence is to not vote and not challenge oligarch rule.
      The oligarchs thank you for not voting.

      1. Vote with your money. Withdraw your cash from banks, withdraw investments in markets, business and bonds. We should start using crypto-currency and gold to buy and sell not fake fiat money.

      2. Why even bother with the oligarchs. Just take them out of the equation

    3. JWK, you are absolutely correct. I for one stopped voting 12 years ago. Wish I’d done it sooner. My reasons are outlined here:

  17. As the US has been lying to itself for decades, if not centuries, the logical conclusion has them electing a proudly ignorant, bare-faced liar as President. The world can no longer pretend the US knows anything about the world, their own best interests, or the best interests of their longest allies and best friends. US 1% put the world through two great recessions in 10 years, destroying decades of lower and middle class wealth. US 1% can’t be expected to defend democracy, expand human rights, maintain an incorruptible rule of ‘law’, or manage the most important part of world’s economy.

    Trump is among the last acts of the US Imperium because:
    Imperial decline progresses by supplanting genuine leadership and public participation with a courtier class responsible only to an oligarchy;
     oligarchs can’t tell trusted friend from odious enemy because the enemy looks and acts so much like the US; 
     the US military is incapable of winning the smallest wars;
     the US economy is used like a Ponzi scheme to enrich the unworthy; 
     children are used to punish immigrant families fleeing US imperial cruelty in their own countries; 
     the US has the worst educated generation since 1776 as science, schools, libraries, an independent press, and dissenting voices are crushed by corporate design; 
     resurgent bigotry is aided by brutally stupid, corrupt police cruelty; 
     ruthless, random violence is blessed by empty prayers and Hollywood blockbusters; 
     there is smug indifference for anything that doesn’t touch their own families, or their favourite sport.

    H.L. Mencken: ‘Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.’

    You might mention TULSI GABBARD, she is still in though many voters don’t know it. It is you that tells us to rail against the official narrative. We might share: For those of you in the 14 super-Tuesday states, TULSI GABBARD is still running. Please let your friends know. Only five left, four of them over 70 and have helped create our problems (permanent war, debt, homeland oppression, highest incarceration rate in the world, shrinking middle class, disparity between rich and poor) to various degrees. Vote TULSI, please.

    1. The sad news is that the Dems have a rule that says a candidate has to get 15% of the vote to win any delegates. Yet another Dem rule to hurt small candidates and keep their supporters from being represented at the convention.
      So, while I’ve been a supporter of Tulsi Gabbard, I cast my Super Tuesday vote for Bernie Sanders. At this point, a vote for Tulsi is wasted, but a vote for Sanders can change the world.

  19. Welcome to DEMENTIA 2020__ The Presidential debate between Joe B. And DonT.Because a vote for dementia is a vote for America.

    1. For anyone still nostalgic for gun-running, crack-dealing, senile Ronnie Reagan, we give you Punchy Joe Biden.
      Reminds me of Hunter Thompson: ‘Hubert Humphrey campaigns like a rat in heat.’

  20. Ms Johnstone you are very right about Joe Biden and you are very right about the DNC. As a citizen of this crazy country I wish the reality was different. Recently I read an article that made me aware of how scary things really are in our political side show.
    The leaders of the Democratic Party — the Clintons, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Tom Perez — would rather implode the party and the democratic state than surrender their positions of privilege. The Democratic Party is not a bulwark against despotism. It is the guarantor of despotism. It is a full partner in the class project. Its lies, deceit, betrayal of working men and women and empowering of corporate pillage made a demagogue like Trump possible. Any threat to the class project, even the tepid one that would be offered by Sanders as the party’s nominee, will see the Democratic elites unite with the Republicans to keep Trump in power. This article is here:


    Aside from the cognitive decline and right-wing politics… Are we all willing to keep pretending that he isn’t some kind of serial groper, with a highly inappropriate (if not blatantly unlawful) penchant for ‘youth(s)’? In the Epstein tales I’ve read, there have been oblique references to a powerful Senator amongst his cultivated list, of blackmailed big whigs. The multiple videos of Joe fondling and whispering seemingly disturbing things into the ears of children, should give us ALL pause…

    And then there is the history that his crack and stripper addicted son (now an “artist”- according to the NY Times), has of making obscene amounts of money – from companies that have fallen under Joe’s legislative or executive purviews – both here and abroad. And it seems that his brother has also profited handsomely from the Biden name and political associations.

    I don’t suppose that Trump is the guy who’ll throw those bricks, at Joe’s “glass house”… But it does make one wonder the thickness of the man’s “Control file”, whether that’s held in Langley, Quantico, London, or Tel Aviv.

  22. Biden may be suffering from dementia but Trump is also losing it and already in 25th amendment territory. So if these two are indeed.the detritus offered up by the respective War Uniparty branches, then I have a suggestion for an alternative to the usual fall debate format.

    Seat the two demented old codgers at a typical nursing home breakfast table, each with a bowl of watery oatmeal and ratty-looking stained bib, and instead of debating each other let’s see which candidate can out-drool the other. Kind of a WWE of Idiocracy-style contest. Seems that this would be more fitting for the intellectual level of the candidates as well as their similarly addled fans.

    1. LOL…. God, this is great! I love it! I salute you for this post!

  23. Bean Brain Bernie is 78 years old, and with the proper VP, expendable.

  24. Clearly the DNC thinks that Trump will best serve their corporatist agenda and are doing everything to maximize his chances of being re-elected. Why do I say this? Because they blatantly prefer Biden as their nominee, but Biden seems to be the pick of what are for Democrats the deep red unwinnable states in the South, like SC, AR & AL. Bernie, on the other hand, is winning in the traditionally Democratic states, including the toss up states any Dem will need to win in November, like PA, MI & WI, the critical states Killary lost to Trump in ’16. Depriving the blue states their choice of Bernie as the nominee will certainly cause his supporters to sit on their hands once again in November or, to gain some retribution against the DNC, actually vote for Trump. Bernie or Tulsi remain the only two Dems this lifelong Democrat would vote for. You try to ram Idiot Joe down my throat and you only help Trump and the GOPers continue in power.//////////////

    Bill Maher is full of manure when he says that Democratic liberals and progressives have no where else to go but to support the corporatist party puppet. Our first order of business is to take back the party leadership, especially if the presidency is out of reach or would be controlled by a corporatist neocon warmongering puppet expediently called a Democrat, which was the nature of the Hildabeast and now Jackass Joe. Taking back the party will involve blowing Joe out of the water even if he is given the nomination on a silver platter by the fascist DNC./////////////

  25. Kakistocracy 101: Psychopaths have one thing in common with the rest of us: they can’t trust a psychopath. that’s why blackmail is the cornerstone of Empire. Always has been.

    And that’s why Bernie is such a threat. There’s no dirt on him. He’s squeaky clean. He’s not in Jeff Epstein’s little black book. So, he’s a wildcard. And the Pastors of Muppets don’t want that. So they have to make stuff up. And because they’re dullards, it’s always Russia.

    Bernie will need a majority, not a plurality, in the primaries or else the “Superdelegates” step in, and they’ve made up their minds already. Uncle Joe it is.

    So, come October, we; ll get to see a presidential debate between two men neither of whom is capable of forming a whole sentence. That’ll be fun.

    Now if you want to see something really really scary and disturbing, here’s Mike Pence and his team praying the Coronavirus away.

    God bless America. I won’t.

  26. I do not understand why the DNC are determined to re-elect Trump.
    There can be no doubt that Biden as the nominee will guarantee a Trump win.
    Bernie with a strong female running mate (or Warren ) are the only possibilities to beat Trump.

  27. Biden is obviously on a rather steep slope of decline. If you go back even a very few years, he was much more together then. So, here’s an interesting question … how much more will Biden have declined by the time that the debates occur in October?
    In America, they have things called “open primaries”. This means any voter can choose which party’s primary to vote in. This year, Trump has no credible opposition in the moribund Republican Party. So, any Republican is free to cross over into the Democratic Primaries and vote there. It is highly likely that a lot of those Biden voters in state of South Carolina were really Trump voters trying to get the updated version of Hillary as the opponent. Of course, there never was much difference between Biden and a Republican.

  28. “When the world turns weird, the weird turn pro” — Hunter S. Thompson.
    I knew the world had turned completely weird when I started hearing that voters who are people of color were the big supporters of Joe Biden.
    I suffer from the same disease as Winston Smith in 1984 in that I have a memory. So, I remember when Joe Biden was known as “The Senator from MasterCard”. Joe Biden represented the corporate state of Deleware which is so-corporate friendly in it laws and taxes that almost any American company that is still located in America is located, at least officially, in Deleware. Sen. Joe Biden was passing, on behalf of MasterCard and the other big banking firms revised bankruptcy laws that stripped Americans of protections that bankruptcy used to afford. That hurt a lot of people, including a lot of people of color. Joe Biden was also big on Crime Bills, and talking about the dangers posed by “super-predators” which never included psychopaths running a bank but which were always young men of color.
    The notion of Joe Biden having a strong base of support among people of color was so completely laughable that I knew at that moment that the world as absolutely turned weird. One of the reasons that Joe Biden’s previous Presidential runs always ended very early was that he had almost zero support among people of color.
    If Joe Biden has support among people of color, then it is definitely time for me to turn pro.

    1. Let me try to logic this out…..
      Obama was a (half) black President (from the ghetto known as Yale).
      Biden was the conservative white guy that Obama picked for the important job of VP.
      So …… uhhh ….. no, still don’t get it.

    2. Thank you for this stroll down memory ‘hole’ lane.

    1. He is only left-wing by their hard right standards. By everyone else’s standards he is more of a centrist candidate with a few mid-left policies. Democrats in the USA think themselves as middling moderates, but they are in fact mid-right, which makes the Republicans hard right (just left of the real extremists).

      Americans don’t understand socialism, and keep confusing it with communism.

    2. Sad to say but Bernie and the other remaining top tier Dem candidates (Biden, Bloomberg & Warren) are all septuagenarians and likely to die of old age or covid19 without the help of assassination. Same goes for Trump. What this says to me is that America has become bereft of new ideas to solve chronically old problems. No one is willing to try something new and so we keep relying on shopworn solutions that have failed time and again, implemented by a small cadre of proven failures. The congressional leadership is equally old and devoid of functional solutions.///////////////

      The puppet masters from behind the scenes (whoever they are) are equally uncreative in choosing their sock puppets. This is getting as ridiculous as Bill Veeck repeatedly bringing back Minnie Minoso to try to get a base hit when the man was in his 60’s. It was just to appease the crowds with nostalgia because the team sucked and management couldn’t figure what else to do. So, the backroom boys just keep picking the Wall Street warmonger of the day from their old reliable short list… and hoping for a different outcome. Imagine, some people are actually led to believe that Joe Biden is the best that America has to offer in leadership!!!

      1. Terrific analogy.

    Here is a scenario that I hope does not occur:
    Come November, if the portion of the population of the United States who feel compelled to vote either Democrat or Republican – when there are clearly better alternatives – are going to plunge the USA into it’s final downward spiral into chaos. While the gun-totin preppers descend into an orgy of killing each other the parasitic billionaires will simply move to greener pastures in other countries, their jets loaded with gold.
    After the chaos has passed, those who are left may be able to build a fair and just society but whatever they do they should not allow those billionaires back in again. No more rich people. Ever. Rich = greedy = psychopath.

  33. 0 + 0 + 0 + BIG WIN for Biden!

    In other news novel coronavirus continues to expand exponentially and largely unseen.
    I was able to tell Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard that the US needs 6 billion doses of chloroquine to treat everybody, at her town hall meeting in Austin tonight.

    Reminder: Take 5000U per day of vitamin-D. Start with 10.000U/d for the first month.

    This article from “Tyler Durden” of Zero Hedge continue the proud tradition that got them deplatformed from Twitter for spreading conspiracy theories that are now conventional wisdom. Rough around the edges, then…
    “What Are The Odds?” – A Timeline Of Facts Linking Covid-19, HIV, & Wuhan’s Secret Bio-Lab

    1. The Wuhan outbreak is in an area starting to dissent against the government due to such bad air pollution that respiratory distress is common, as are deaths from pneumonia. On top of that, they went 5G. So they are living and breathing in chemical soup, in a radiation field. 5G has biological effects, among the it speeds up viral replication, and interferes with oxygen absorption.
      Currently Chinas apparently responsible quarantine of Wuhan is enough to disrupt supply chains and send many world economies into depression. It also shuts down those pesky demonstrators who want clean air and healthy children.
      Vitamin C (mega doses) are being used to successfully cure patients, at least 80% rates. This who consume GMOs or animals fed GMO feeds are more susceptible, having gut dysbiosis and depressed immune systems. Vitamin D supplements are also a good idea. I would also use chlorine dioxide. Going to hospitals is already a death sentence for many in the US, but with such a contagious virus, its probably best to do self care for the family at home.
      Flu only kills weakened folks. Keep your immune system strong, stock up on vitamin C (mostly produced in China!). Fear not, this is part of the economic warfare and fear mongering to take the world to war.
