OBJECTIONS TO JOE BIDEN – A CONSOLIDATION OF POINTS FROM SEVERAL EARLIER COMMENTS

 

“His nice smile just won’t do it.”

 

I think the Democrats have backed themselves into a corner with Joe Biden.

Here are just some of the objections to him as a candidate. I definitely believe he would be Trump’s own choice as an opponent.

Perhaps, there’s a secret plan to substitute someone else at the last moment?

Or is it that the Democratic establishment just so despises politicians like Bernie Sanders and Tulsi Gabbard that they would rather lose the election than give one of them a fair chance for the nomination?

Biden is a man who is able to generate no excitement or enthusiasm. He’s a place-filler. A political apparatchik with a nice smile.

Biden can display quite a nasty temper in public at times. He angrily told a worker at a plant in Michigan recently that he was “a horse’s ass and full of shit.”

Perhaps Biden’s most dangerous view is about Russia. He is quoted as saying, “[I regard Russia as] an adversary or even an enemy,” a tired repetition of the warmongering Pentagon attitude. He also repeats the completely unproven claim that Russia works to “subvert democracies in western Europe and the United States.” They are views right from the CIA playbook, dishonest and dangerous, intended to promote strife and hostility.

He consistently supported wars and coups through his career. He worked closely with Obama on carrying some of them out. He served as Obama’s proconsul in Ukraine for a coup against an elected government.

That very much included America’s support for Ukraine’s ugly Azov Battalion – an absolutely neo-Nazi outfit with swastika-like armbands and torchlight parades and hate-filled speeches – which serves to intimidate any elected government, including the current one, from straying too far from the right path, the one chosen by America. There are photos of Biden with a big smile on his face shaking hands with Azov Battalion leader, Oleh Tyahnybok.

All the wars and coups, of course, involve deceit about what is actually taking place. So, Biden has had a lot of practice with avoiding truth.

Biden has an unpleasant habit of pawing women, including young girls, at many public events, something attested to by many easily-found photographs on the Internet.

Biden’s 1988 Presidential campaign effort was embarrassingly ended by the clearest evidence of his having plagiarized the speeches of British Labour Party politician Neil Kinnock. He also plagiarized Bobby Kennedy.

Biden supported Bill Clinton’s most conservative policies, including “the end to welfare in our time.”

Biden actually said of Obama in 2007, “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”

Biden voted to overturn the Glass-Steagall Act, an important Roosevelt-era law which protected insured consumer bank deposits from the predation of investment banking.

Biden opposed school integration through bussing in the 1970s, and he was asked to speak at the funeral of Strom Thurmond, unrepentant southern racist politician, in 2003, and he did so.

For years, Biden described the driver of the truck which killed his first wife and daughter in 1972, as a drunk, saying things like, “He drank his lunch instead of eating his lunch.” He was not. The official investigation found the truck driver completely innocent. The driver’s family, obviously exposed to great anguish, pleaded with Biden to stop, but he would not, even after the unfortunate driver died.

Biden has the same annoying tendency as Hillary Clinton of just suddenly blurting out some claim about his past that’s just complete fiction, as his recent claim about being arrested when trying to visit Nelson Mandela in prison decades ago. It resembled Hillary’s proven-false claim about coming under sniper fire in Bosnia.

He has done that kind of thing many times, including a story about being asked to award a Silver Star to a heroic soldier in Afghanistan, an event which never happened. Again, he claimed he always opposed the invasion of Iraq when just the opposite was the case, he is remembered as an enthusiastic supporter, and an early one.

That kind of story-telling isn’t about the failings of old age. It represents an inherent mental or psychological problem, the need to present yourself to others as being at the center of events. It’s almost a version of Munchausen’s syndrome.

Now, he shows another kind of forgetfulness which many openly describe as the onset of senility, an example being the recent introduction of his wife as his sister.

He’s a man with a rather shabby political record. Everything from his lousy treatment of Anita Hill decades ago in the Senate Judiciary Committee to his advocacy with Obama for extrajudicial killing on an industrial scale by the CIA.

Anita Hill was a credible, calm, and well-spoken witness. But under Biden, she was put through ugly and embarrassing questioning. Anita Hill was treated as a wrong-doer rather than as a witness against one. It was Joe Biden rushing to save the Washington establishment from embarrassment over a poor Supreme Court nomination.

The industrial-scale killing program for which Biden advocated sees someone’s name put on a “kill list” by an anonymous CIA thug. The person listed is afterwards incinerated by a missile controlled by another CIA thug playing real-life computer games in a secret basement or warehouse.

The regard for rule of law is just touching. As is the humanity.

Biden kicked off his current campaign with an exploitative advertising film, featuring the sad violent events at Charlottesville, Virginia, setting himself up pretentiously as doing “battle for the soul of this nation,” to contrast with Trump’s widely criticized statement about the “moral equivalence” between neo-Nazis and anti-fascists.

Biden’s characterization of himself would be hard enough to accept on its own, but Biden never had the decency to ask the mother of the dead woman, Heather Heyer, killed at Charlottesville, whether it would be okay to use the event in his political advertising.

Apart from quirks and shabbiness, his whole political career has been undistinguished, just sitting-on-the-fence establishment, never having created anything new or valuable, but always looking for an opportunity to advance himself.

I just can’t imagine how they are going to prevent some aspects of his behavior in Ukraine from surfacing. Ukraine itself might have incentive for providing evidence to ingratiate itself with Trump.

At the very least, and something we know without additional evidence, Biden’s behavior as Obama’s proconsul to the new coup-installed government of Ukraine included effectively taking a large bribe, one in the form of the appointment of his son to a company director’s position.

His son, Hunter, was completely unqualified for the position. He had no industry contacts or influence. It was in an industry about which he knew nothing, and it concerned a country whose language he could not even speak. He received, for years, an unheard-of salary (for directors of companies) of $50 thousand dollars per month.

Out of 330 million people, Biden and Trump are the best candidates America’s two national political parties can come up with? Simply unbelievable, but it is an excellent measure of the feeble state of American democracy.

 

SMALL ADDITIONAL NOTE:

It has just been revealed by a female Secret Service officer that Biden, whether at home or away, always swims in the nude.

It was very uncomfortable for female agents assigned to protect him, and indeed no one wanted to be assigned to his protection.
