Please explain why anyone would vote for Joe Biden

I’m not on Facebook, but everywhere I go I am surrounded by these people and not one of them can tell me why. I always ask and no one ever explains.

  1. Biden’s rallies look like something out a Cars movie. Does that also make him a mechanical device?

  2. Nob

    Wot, no enthusiasm for Green Nude Eel?

  3. Texas Jack

    Ask any TDS-infected lefty what actual policies of The Donald they don’t like and you will be unfriended with great ease.

  4. H B Bear

    9 out of 10 times all you are getting is anti-Trump, MSM feelz. That is the plan. The Kochie demographic.

  5. Slim Cognito

    Unfortunately most people get their news/opinions in bite size pieces and they don’t question it. They get fed a constant diet of “Trump is bad” and they accept it without question. It gets reinforced when everyone in their circle of influence says the same thing, therefore it must be true. They never get challenged on it because all they see is the ABC, the Project or Sunrise and don’t get exposed to any deeper level of analysis.
    I see it all the time.

    Received this today but not sure if it’s authentic but could be easily checked ….

    Story with a noteworthy ending:
    Earlier this week, I finished reading Donald Rumsfeld’s wonderful biography of Gerald Ford, titled ”When the Center Held.” It was written in 2018.
    The book clearly articulates that President Ford was a thoroughly good man, a special American, and a greatly underrated President. HOWEVER, there was a story in the book that was startling.
    In 1975, President Ford was left to manage the difficult ending of the Vietnam War.
    As North Vietnam seized on the opportunity to test American resolve following President Nixon’s resignation, President Ford went to Congress to ask for a relief package to push back on the North Vietnamese to allow American personnel and our allies to evacuate.
    However, there was one U.S. Senator who opposed any such support.
    The result was the embarrassing and hurried evacuation from the roof of the American embassy in Saigon.
    This senator reviled in the embarrassment and did everything he could to leverage it politically against Ford.
    Despite the efforts of this U.S .Senator – President Ford managed to rescue 1,500 South Vietnamese allies prior to the country’s fall.
    Had President Ford not acted quickly, these people would have been targeted and slaughtered for their support for America. Saving them was a moral obligation.
    When they arrived in America, President Ford asked Congress for a package to assist these refugees integrate into American society.
    But, that troublesome U.S. Senator showed up again and torpedoed any support for these shell-shocked refugees.
    Instead, President Ford had to recruit Christian organizations to offer assistance on a voluntary basis.
    As he did so, the aforementioned Senator belittled those efforts.
    What kind of person would oppose President Ford’s tireless work to do the right and humanitarian thing?
    Who would want to play politics with the well-being of innocent people who stood by America in the tragic Vietnam War?
    That U.S. Senator? Joe Biden.
    Donald Trump isn’t a saint and I’ve had my issues with him.
    But, the gushing and revisionist history over Joe Biden and his record is nauseating.

    Democracy was never such a great system, but now its not even the least worst.

  8. Colonel Crispin Berka

    C’mon maaaaan.

  9. Ubique

    Ask any TDS-infected lefty what actual policies of The Donald they don’t like

    Never fails to be met with incredulous silence.

  10. I’ve asked Australian friends of mine why they hate Trump and all they can do is parrot the Leftist media’s rhetoric. They have no knowledge of his achievements or anything about him either; they don’t want to know, they just trust the media (Their ABC and the Age mainly).

  11. Herodotus

    The ABC, and someone named David Charter in that opinion oscillating rag The Australian, are saying “Trump trails Biden in states he won last time” as if the polls that were wrong last time were any better now.
    What’s more disturbing is a reminder, if true, that suburban women caused the reversal in the lower house that put the Pelosi gang in charge. That has been significant in almost derailing the USA.
    Will they do better this time?

  12. I’m voting for Joe Biden to bring decency,honesty,mental fitness& integrity to the White House.
    #HarrisBiden2020

  13. Suburban women don’t like antifa/BLM riots!
    White bitches for the win.

  14. Dinky

    I have friends who live near Madison, Wisconsin. They voted Trump in 2016 & will vote for him again but they don’t think he will win. Why? Because in 2016 they knew a lot of Democrat supporters who weren’t motivated to vote for Hilary so they didn’t vote at all but this time they are motivated, not for Biden but in their desire to get a rid of Trump & will vote. So my friends believe that “motivation” will return Wisconsin back to the Democrats & that the same thing will happen in other states.

  15. Pyrmonter

    Lifeling Republican anti-Trump acquaintance has been sharing this widely. It makes as much sense as the other reasons to vote for Biden (other than that he isn’t Trump):

  16. Jonesy

    Going by an online gamer poll with the gang that play first person shooter/fantasy with my daughter (whatever..I’m a dweeb dad who doesnt understand!) Age at about 25yo, all over the US. Sample size 50. Outcome 100% anti-Trump! Equally, they do not like Biden….could these kids be part of the Bernie movement?

  17. Mark M

    The closest I’ve gotten to a response on why a friend hated PDT: “I reckon he’s got a screw loose”, and promptly hung up.

    We have spoken since, and we haven’t mentioned the U.S. election.

    I’m biting my lip, but, want to ask if he is ready for 4 more years.

    So much winning.

    Not sick of it yet, Mr president.

  18. Up The Workers!

    Please explain?

    S.T.U.P.I.D.I.T.Y.!

    It’s all in the breeding.

    Indeed, which is why us smart punters can still get nearly 3:1 on the Donald. Simply comparing the raw footage of the crowd energy at a 10,000 person Trump rally to a 10 ring invited journo only ‘crop circle’ for Biden tells you what’s going to happen on polling day. Its a 2016 redux.

    Okay, here is my pet peeve.

    Everyone seems to qualify any expression of endorsement for Trump with ‘but for all his faults…’

    What are these faults? Are they so unique and egregious?

    What is unique is that he is so brash, straight talking, and not some meticulously assembled and polished calibrated fictitious persona. Washington is full of those. So many that if you asked people to dress as a politician they would all dress the same.

    He is not of the sort that has failed for decades.

    He has some ideas that differ from mine, but that is actually normal for anyone of anyone.

    Failings would be things like sweet deals for mates or being too keen to appease the media.

    There was a post the other day (by CL, I believe) where some Australian journo declared that Trump was surely what conservatives would hate. He meant that he would not be seen as one of their tribe – and their is the journalist blindness and the genesis of so many of their errors.

    The conservatives want to be left alone to do their own thing. It is not their lifestyles they want enforced, but their freedoms protected. That makes Trump someone they can want as President.

    The left thinks everything is doctrinal, and conservatives must all share a precise doctrine. The left are policing the opinions, the outlooks, even the words their members speak. There is no equivalence to this on the right but the left thinks there is. The right is individualist. They don’t see it as their job to tell people what to think for precisely the same reason they don’t want anyone else telling them. They are happy to just get along.

    I work with a few people. You can always tell the leftists because they are turning every moment into a test. Forever throwing their politics to watch how people react. Expressing shock at the least hint of not sharing their attitudes, as if the difference is the result of ingrained malice.

    It comes across as desperate.

    And I think there is a certain inner anxiety as well. They are individuals trying to be an element in a collective. They must constantly renounce their own thoughts in deference for the received though, and must always be aware that at some point they will express an opinion or an idea (which they might not really feel in the first place) and be caught out. It is a bight of a tightrope. The only refuge is, when you are confident they have properly assimilated the right opinion, is to shout it out as loudly and insistently as possible.

    And so they do.

    Biden’s rallies look like something out a Cars movie.

    Biden has been actually having his rallies in car parks. This way there are people showing up to go shopping.

    Democrats are relying upon the day after to oust Trump and introduce Michael with testicles. They know that they will not win legitimately at the polls. But they believe it will be a gay parade, with plenty of leather, and an emphasis on the metal.

    Biden’s son-in-law is expecting to clean up with his coronavirus companies.

    World Economic Forum are keen to introduce their new kind of capitalism, with plenty of opiate for the masses in the form of a Green New Deal.

    BENEATH THE TOP LINE POLL NUMBERS

    The first thing to understand about the Democratic Party today is that its shift to the left has occurred chiefly among white Democrats. This may be the hidden weakness that delivers the election to Trump.

    Like Teddy Roosevelt.

    The TDS infected cannot be reasoned with. Pre-COVID I spoke with an American while on a cruise and when the topic went to politics he proclaimed to all around that “Trump never won the election”. I pointed out that under the electoral system that led to the election of at least 20 previous Presidents he did so please explain why he was not elected but is in the White House. All I got was repetition that he did not win but no actual reason why. It was pointless conversation so I ended it.

    Oh it was analysed … But I’m guessing the the very thorough analysis is still ongoing! (So the contents can not be released up the line) 😉

    Hunter Biden and the Big Tech information coup

    The internet was supposed to democratize information, but we now see that it has privatized it

  33. Colonel Crispin Berka

    In chronological order, from the NY Post articles…

    ① An earlier email from May 2014 also shows Pozharskyi, reportedly Burisma’s No. 3 exec, asking Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” on the company’s behalf.

    May 13, 2014 – Hunter Biden joins the team of Burisma Holdings

    ③ Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, allegedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about a year after Hunter joined the Burisma board at a reported salary of up to $50,000 a month. “Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure,”

    ④ The Obama administration let a Democratic p.r. company that worked for Ukrainian energy firm Burisma take part in a conference call about an upcoming visit to Ukraine by then-Vice President Joe Biden, emails obtained by The Post show. … The memo, sent shortly after the Dec. 2, 2015, call, also “outlined the trip’s agenda and addressed several questions regarding US policy toward Ukraine.”

    ⑤ Less than eight months after Pozharskyi thanked Hunter Biden for the introduction to his dad, the then-vice president admittedly pressured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk into getting rid of Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin by threatening to withhold a $1 billion US loan guarantee during a December 2015 trip to Kiev.

    The relevant federal regulations.

    § 2635.702 Use of public office for private gain.
    An employee shall not use his public office for his own private gain, for the endorsement of any product, service or enterprise, or for the private gain of friends, relatives, or persons with whom the employee is affiliated in a nongovernmental capacity[…]

    (d) Performance of official duties affecting a private interest. To ensure that the performance of his official duties does not give rise to an appearance of use of public office for private gain or of giving preferential treatment, an employee whose duties would affect the financial interests of a friend, relative or person with whom he is affiliated in a nongovernmental capacity shall comply with any applicable requirements of § 2635.502.

    § 2635.502 Personal and business relationships.
    (a) Consideration of appearances by the employee. Where an employee knows that a particular matter involving specific parties is likely to have a direct and predictable effect on the financial interest of a member of his household, or knows that a person with whom he has a covered relationship is or represents a party to such matter, and where the employee determines that the circumstances would cause a reasonable person with knowledge of the relevant facts to question his impartiality in the matter, the employee should not participate in the matter unless he has informed the agency designee of the appearance problem and received authorization from the agency designee in accordance with paragraph (d) of this section.

    So we’ll be hearing from the State Department ethics designee in Never, Never-1, Never-2…

    FCC Commissioner notes that Facebook decided to censor the Hunter Biden story before it was fact-checked

    As Twitchy reported earlier, a Facebook employee who just happened to work previously for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Sen. Barbara Boxer, and presidential candidate John Kerry announced that he would not be linking to the New York Post’s piece on Hunter Biden’s recovered emails, in part because the story hadn’t yet been fact-checked by Facebook’s third-party fact-checking partners. Furthermore, Facebook would be “reducing its distribution.”

    Federal Communications Commissioner Brendan Carr noted what a lot of us did — this seemed to be the first time Facebook decided it had to fact-check an article before allowing it to be distributed on its platform.

  35. Kneel

    “Facebook censors The Post to help Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign”

    This brings up an interesting thing:

    Have the Democrats violated campaign finance rules by not declaring a “donation in kind” from Facebook and Twitter?

    Have Facebook and/or Twitter broken campaign finance laws by supplied more the the maximum allowed corporate donation “in kind”?

    Which, of course, raises the question: how much is such “fact checking”, “labelling” and flat-out censorship worth? How much would it cost if charged out, even at cost?

    It’s certainly not hard to show a political bias here: Twitter “flags” Trump tweets and otherwise blocks them for being “untrue”, but there are many Biden/Harris/Pelosi/ AOC/et al tweets that are clearly and obviously false, yet are not so flagged – case in point is the current Democrat talking point that appointing a new judge is “unconstitutional” in an election year (it’s clearly not, as both Biden himself and Obama said in 2016).

    Interesting, nothing in The Australia or SMH on HUnter Biden emails that I can find at the moment.

    One interesting place to look is a Twitter account titled National Security Leaders For Biden. Assuming if course that the question isn’t rhetorical.

    Nolte: Study and Signs Tell Us Polls Might Be Missing Hidden Trump Voters

    There are other things…

    If Trump is down so far, why are Biden and Kamala Harris visiting places like Arizona and Nevada? Hitting Michigan and Wisconsin? You’d think he’d be in states like Texas trying to pick those off. Not defending states like Nevada, which Hillary won in 2016.

    As I mentioned yesterday, there is also the enthusiasm gap. Practically no one — and that’s not an exaggeration — shows up to Biden-Harris events, while Trump’s personal appearances literally look like rock concerts.

    The polling also reflects a double-digit enthusiasm gap.

    Usually when a presidential contender is losing, everything lines up against him. And I mean everything. The polls are consistent and make sense. The crowds make sense. The enthusiasm gap makes sense. That’s just not true today and it wasn’t true when the polls were wrong in 2016.

    I’m not making any predictions, but it would not surprise me at all to be surprised on Election Night.

  40. Kneel

    “why are Biden and Kamala Harris visiting places like Arizona and Nevada? Hitting Michigan and Wisconsin?”

    They know they can’t win, so this is their backup plan – contest everything and force a house vote for who is president. But to win that, they need the majority of states, which get one vote each on this matter, to be D dominated. And the listed districts are the ones that are the closest races, and offer them the best chance of getting that majority, which they currently lack.
    “whatever it takes”
