    I wonder who dresses him and makes sure the tie matches etc and combs his hair.
    Making sure he had a shower. Writing out notes for him to read, names of people to remember. Probably a small team of butler type workers.

    Doesn’t putting this demented guy on display to be made fun of as a fool class as abuse of the eldery or something to that effect?

    Enlarge the picture and look at his eyes, the pupils are hugely dilated ,this is often a sign of drugs . Anti depressant and Parkinsons disease treatents cause this ,also pelosis much loved Botox has that effect too .
    I think they are stinging him untill they get the antifa blm hit man to make him a socialist Martyr killed by extreme right wing Trumpist terrorists .
    Then the half Indian takes over and away we go ,with banning guns guns and electoral fraud entrenched by laws to ensure the hedge funders who own them rule forever ,with a country full of cheap imported workers homelessness , crime ,poverty and violence , supposedly ruled by an elite gerontocracy lie it is now .

  17. JohnJJJ says:

    Interesting as the yanks that I deal with keep saying what an embarrassment Trump was and how he was ridiculed by the world. Of course, it didn’t occur to them this was a measure of his effectiveness. They really want to be liked… well at least superficially.
    So now they have this.
    Bizarre times.

    Agree … BUT: Just. Don’t. Go. There. Don’t give them any ideas!!!

  19. Bar Beach Swimmer says:

    And numbers and Monty keep arguing that there was nothing sinister about the election.

    It’s quite funny really.

    They’d rather have an imbecile Manchurian Candidate as leader of the free world who was placed there by a corrupt party, than Trump.

    And they’d rather see another four years of helping China shaft the world, than Trump.

    It doesn’t say much about their standards.

    Just had a look at NYT and WAPO . Came away Inspired by the wonderfull speech made by the Great Elected Leader of the decromatic world .
    I actually burst out laughing at the lies these globalist fascists were trying to put over they are truly mentally deranged these US media muppets , right up themselves in their arrogant assumption that anyone but another lunatic would believe their crap ,they still think the peasants havent heard of the internet where they can get the truth .

  25. JohnJJJ says:

    Perhaps Cat can run a book on this. The choices are:
    Accident – could divide this up: aircraft, car, boat.. 50/1
    Disappear completely( like HH going for a swim) 40/1
    Step down voluntarily: “more time with the family”, 2/1
    Act of violence ( staged of course) – could divide this up but a bit morbid 10/1
    Then, which month:
    April 10/1
    May 8/1
    June 2/1
    …. At least it would make watching this circus more enjoyable.

  28. Bad Samaritan says:

    The day before the 2020 election there were 139 million registered US voters. There were supposed to have been 158.4 million votes cast. Biden is supposed to have got 82 million. 2.5 million for others. 74 million Donald.

    The possibility is that the 74 million Trump voters were legit and also that the other 84 million were also legit, which means that the extra 19 million who were not registered prior to the election actually registered on the day, and then voted.

    Except of course that the narrative reads “Democrats shunned in person voting due to the pandemic. The massive swing toward Joe after the polls closed was caused by mail-ins.”

    This does not compute!

    Won’t be a white guy – it will be an extreme right-wing, white-supremacist, Nazi secret organisation with 74 million members who will all be disarmed, hunted down & exterminated.

  30. billie says:

    there’s a lot of people in America, who think this is ok

    their reasoning is, it’s not Trump

    just wow

    how can his wife and kids allow this, can you imagine doing it to your dad, or partner?

  31. dover_beach says:

    Trump humiliated the Dems and RINOs back in 2016. They are prepared to visit any amount of indignity on the nation so long as they removed Trump. They are sociopaths.

  32. Viva says:

    Except comedians are also giving the Demoligarchy a tongue bath.

  33. PB says:

    “The soviet demorats are building a stronger case supporting Kamala’s coming coup.”

    Well, it does appear that Joe’s clear dementia is being allowed to seep into mainstream visibility as part of setting up the transition. This was always the plan, called by some almost as soon as he scored the nomination against younger, better presented (if still nuts) candidates.

  34. Damon says:

    No-one can tell me what was actually wrong with Trump. His policies were good and effective, but he was TRUMP.

  35. Damon says:

    Everybody is acknowledging that Kamala will take over, probably before the end of the year. Joe knows it, hence his insistence that he will run for a second term. He’s becoming increasingly pitiable.

    “…

    I simply do not understand why anyone would ask such a question. The family is a mirror image of the degenerate.

    He would visit the same on them if there was a quid in it for him!

    He’s always been like this! Nothing has changed! It’s the impact of his childhood stammer!

    In fact, he’s actually very lucid and coherent. Moreso than Obama and vastly moreso than Trump, who never learnt to speak and communicated solely by grunting and throwing things.

  40. Oh come on says:

    Seriously, though. We all know that Joe isn’t all there. However, the people pulling his strings aren’t exactly the A-team. For instance, someone wrote that ‘voter ID makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle’ line and thought it would be a winner.

  41. luke73 says:

    Except of course that the narrative reads “Democrats shunned in person voting due to the pandemic. The massive swing toward Joe after the polls closed was caused by mail-ins.”

    I don’t get why this doesn’t compute?

    I don’t think its controversial to point out that Democratic voters were more likely to take Covid seriously given that Trump had been downplaying it for months and survey after survey bore out that Dems were more worried about Covid then Repubs.

    In addition to that Trump had been saying that mail in voting was rigged and corrupt for months to the point that GOP officials were extremely concerned it was going to impact their vote and asked him to stop (given that fact that mail in voting has traditionally favored the GOP).

    I must have read about the “red mirage” a hundred times before the election, i.e. the initial results were going to favour Trump because all the polls were showing his voters favoured on the day voting and then the mail ins (which in most states were counted last despite Dem attempts to have them counted prior as in Pennsylvania) would shift the count back to Biden.

    Trump attracted millions of new voters to the GOP, 74.2 million votes (an additional 12-13 million compared to 2016) this was an amazing achievement, the thing is though he also mobilised people that disliked the job he’d done to an incredible degree, he was a literal turn out machine for the Dems.

  42. Rex Anger says:

    Now they’re blaming the success of The Steal on Orangutan Bard…

  43. luke73 says:

    Now they’re blaming the success of The Steal on Orangutan Bard…

    You know in the 2016 Iowa primary that Ted Cruz won, Trump said that was rigged …when he didn’t get an Emmy one year for the Apprentice ..he said that was rigged.

    He said before the 2016 election “If I don’t win it’s because it was rigged”.

    He said before the 2020 election “If I don’t win it’s because it was rigged”.

    The guy just can’t stand being thought a loser, to not be a “loser” is kind of his thing.

  44. Rex Anger says:

    And now, the meme blames the meme on the Orangutan Bard…

  45. luke73 says:

    And now, the meme blames the meme on the Orangutan Bard…

  46. Rex Anger says:

    You’re quite happy to spout the Narrative, and won’t be swayed otherwise.

    And you are at complete liberty to do so.

    But do expect to get poked in the same lazy and uncritical way that you presented them…

  47. calli says:

    45 doesn’t like losing.

    That doesn’t make the raft of questions and conclusions about the 2020 election untrue.

  48. luke73 says:

    Ok Rex, I just hope we never get to the point in this country where the LNP or ALP question the legitimacy of an election they lose just because they lost…Democracy and the stability of society depends on centre left and centre right accepting that sometimes you win some and sometimes you lose some. You accept it, regather and look to the next election. If this falls apart, the extremists on both sides win and violence is inevitable.

    The ALP reaction to both Howard and Abbott made it plain that they thought their victories were not legitimate, and they sulked for years after both victories.

    On top of the ever-more blatant attempts to topple said Governments by any means necessary. Up to and including the current farce that is doing a better job.of exposing all of the sexual and professional bastardry of the Canberra classes than one side wanted revealed…

  51. Rex Anger says:

    Just because we have not yet seen the street thugs try.to burn Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane does not mean it won’t be tried one day.

    Just wait until someone like Riccardo Bosi or David Lleyjomhelm ends up as PM…

    Mate there’s always a subset amongst political parties most faithful that find a loss hard to accept and lash out in anger, but if there was a concerted attempt by ALP leadership elements to label Howard and Abbott as having won via literally stealing their elections through criminal rigging I must have missed it.

  53. Rex Anger says:

    subset

    That is a fascinating way to describe an entire intelligentsia, media and political class.

    but if there was a concerted attempt by ALP leadership elements to label Howard and Abbott as having won via literally stealing their elections through criminal rigging I must have missed it.

    …And that is what we call a straw man. You have truly earned your anklebiter badge today.

  54. Rex Anger says:

    Need I also mention their street activist organisations, ‘lobbyists,’ rent-a-mobs on speed dial, various species of Fellow Travellers and their bowtie-spinning ‘enablers?’

  55. luke73 says:

    Rex, vigorous opposition is part of or Democracy, sure a lot of the stuff aimed at Howard and Abbott was harsh and unfair at times, I would venture Gillard copped some pretty cruel blowback as well…that’s the way it is in our country, as long as it doesn’t get violent and we stick to verbal jousting and debate, it’s all good.

  56. luke73 says:

    “our”

  57. Rex Anger says:

    It gave up on that in 1975…

  58. Chris M says:

    how can his wife and kids allow this, can you imagine doing it to your dad, or partner?

    They all hate him. No-one actually likes Joe. Read in the leaked emails what Hunter says about him, seemed a bit scared and complaining about how much of a cut he wanted (it was way more than 10%).

    I expect he is going to be shifted or deleted within months, it’ll be done in some way to garner public sympathy and understanding. Perhaps it will be as simple as him having a stroke one night. Anyways the Democrats are smart enough not to just shove him out the way, it will be some unfortunate event.

    Not to mention that fake doctor Jill only married him to get access to the power and prestige of being a politician’s wife. Her being First Lady is more important than her husband’s health. Plus with Biden’s predilection for fondling minors and mooning Secret Service agents in the swimming pool area, they are 2 vile creatures who deserve each other.

    Luke73 (8.16pm);

    To register on the day you need to show up in person. Since, as you note, the Dems took the pandemic seriously and did not show up in person…..it is not possible that the extra 19 million were legit.

    Got why it does not compute?

    ChrisM, as Winston Smith already said the method will be an assassination. They need a crisis to first make him a martyr and a hero and second, so they can inflict martial law on the entire country and confiscate all the guns.

    So obviously a majority of those new 19 million were Trump voters, he did attract a whole swathe of new GOP voters who were people previously disengaged from politics, one of the reasons the GOP is finding it so hard to cut him loose (which usually happens to a candidate after a Presidential election is lost) is that they don’t want to lose these new people he attracted.

    We’ve been through this before.
    If that narrative is correct, how would you explain it only occurring in just 6 counties in 6 states but nowhere else?
    How would you explain the “people hated Trump so they turned out” when Biden won fewer counties than Obama did in 2012 and even fewer than Hillary did in 2016?

    The Trump haters would be more likely to reside in deep blue states like NY, NJ and CA. Yet Trump lost those places by a smaller margin than in 2016.

    Facts don’t back your narrative.

  70. Luke73 says:

    Perhaps you should have opened your eyes?

    In a country of 25 million people of course there are going to be some small % of people that consider their political opponents illegitimate (I take “illegitimate” to imply illegally elected or elected by nefarious means), I do not recall any persons in ALP leadership positions having pushed a position that Abbott or Howard were illegitimate Prime Ministers through having not having won a majority of seats via a legal election.

    Abbott and Bolt bashed in the street, Ante-fa gangs roaming around, conservative speakers needing police protection, our very own fat fascist fool munty calling for “Nazis” (defined s those with whom he disagrees politically) to be bashed in the street

    .

    I recall the attack on Bolt, absolute dickheads….I hope they met the full force of the law. Bolt handled himself well….when did Abbott get bashed in the street?

    Antifa gangs roaming around? In Australia? Do you mean the people that turn up to oppose White Nationalist gatherings? I don’t know what you’re getting at here.

    As for Monty, Munty? I don’t what was said to which you are referring and don’t wish to verbal him….but he’s one dude and as far as I know doesn’t represent anyone but himself.

    Labelling all people left of centre as violent marxists or whatever cos of isolated extremists is as dumb as labelling all conservatives fascists cos of Nazi idiots. There are always gonna be dickheads, that’s life.

    I hadn’t heard this one before so I googled it….I won’t just reword what I read as if it was my words but would point to this Associated Press article that explains why the phenomenon you described occurred.

  72. Boambee John says:

    I do not recall any persons in ALP leadership positions having pushed a position that Abbott or Howard were illegitimate Prime Ministers through having not having won a majority of seats via a legal election.

    Their attitude was more one of entitlement. Government belonged to Labor, and any Coalition government was by (their) definition illegitimate. Yet you could not see that? There are none so blind …

    I hadn’t heard this one before so I googled it….

    That AP article is about winning the election with fewer counties won. The Kenyan did that against both McCain and Romney. That doesn’t address what I talking about.
    I’m talking about your claim of Trump haters turning out in droves. If people did turn out in droves, they would have done so across the country. THEY DIDN’T. And the AP article actually backs my claim. Do you not see that?

    Were the haters only in 6 counties? Did Trump poison their wells or something?
    Why were there no haters in CA, NY, NJ etc?

    Either address what I said or admit that your theory falls short on FACTS.

  75. Luke73 says:

    What are the six counties and states to which you’re referring?

    Could you link me a source for where you’re pulling your figures?

    The AP article I linked states;

    The claim implies that these two electoral outcomes (counties won and number of votes cast) should be highly correlated, or are even causal,” Leighley said in an email. “They are not—one is a measure of a geographical region vote, the other the number of votes cast.”

    Counties across the United States vary dramatically in size, from populations of a few hundred people to several million. Trump won many smaller counties this year, while Biden pulled majorities in some of the nation’s largest counties, such as Los Angeles County in California and Maricopa County in Arizona.

    Biden did win fewer small counties than Obama won in 2008, but he won by higher margins than Obama did in urban areas such as Los Angeles County and Washington’s King County, data shows.

    Are the counties I highlighted in your 6?

  76. Baa Humbug says:

    @Luke73 says:
    March 27, 2021 at 4:18 pm

    Again, why are you not addressing the issue YOU opened? Namely that Trump was hated so much that hordes of Democrats turned up.

    Below are the counties (7 actually) that turned a win in the bag at midnight, into a bad loss. Is this where the haters live?
    Because if you take out these 7 counties, then Trump wins and wins easily. That means the question of hate doesn’t show up anywhere else.

    Clark County (NV), Pittsburgh and Philadelphia (PA), Wayne County (MI), Maricopa County (AZ), Madison (WI) and Fulton County, Georgia.

  77. luke73 says:

    Again, why are you not addressing the issue YOU opened? Namely that Trump was hated so much that hordes of Democrats turned up.

    I said this because Biden received 81,268,924 votes (as per http://www.fec.gov), the most in U.S presidential election history, ipso facto “hordes of Democrats turned up”.

    As to your suspicions into the spread of those votes and where/when they occurred, could you please post your source so I can read myself and properly answer your question (or did you do your own spreadsheet or something)?

  78. dover_beach says:

    Yes, the hordes of Democrats that supposedly ‘turned up’ in record numbers seem to be unduly concentrated in those six or so counties Humbug mentions above, and we see no similarly appearance in demographically similar demographic counties in LA, Chicago, NYC, Baltimore, and the like.

    Nothing to see here!

  79. luke73 says:

    So post a source for your claims as I have?

    I don’t care if it’s some far right blog or whatever, I want to read it and address it on its merits.

  80. Noice.

    So post a source for your claims as I have?

    Is there a disconnect of some sort here?
    What you HAVEN’T addressed is your own claim that hordes turned out because they hated Trump.

    Do you not see that if Biden did receive the greatest number of votes in the history of US elections, he certainly didn’t across the country. Your own source (AP) states that Biden won with fewer counties than Obama or Clinton.
    THEREFORE the “hate” you claim could only have happened in A FEW counties. Just like I stated earlier.

  82. Luke73 says:

    Your own source (AP) states that Biden won with fewer counties than Obama or Clinton.
    THEREFORE the “hate” you claim could only have happened in A FEW counties. Just like I stated earlier.

    Ok, so you accept that counties won and number of votes cast are two separate things and not causal (i.e one is a measure of a geographical region vote, the other the number of votes cast).

    I don’t accept your claim of JUST 6 counties where Biden’s vote put him over the top until you post a source and I get to evaluate it too. Otherwise I just have to assume you’re making shit up or you’re embarrassed to post your source because it’s some far right kook like Mike Lindell or Jim Hoft. I’ve asked nicely three times now.

    P.S. I never used the word “hate”, I actually said “…disliked the job he’d done”.

    P.P.S You’re aware that demographics change election to election right? People get older, people immigrate/emigrate, people die, people move to and away from urban/suburban areas (mostly to), etc.

    These are the counties that I listed in my earlier comment

    Clark County (NV), Pittsburgh and Philadelphia (PA), Wayne County (MI), Maricopa County (AZ), Madison (WI) and Fulton County, Georgia.

    Those who watched the election on the night and through to the next day, know that Trump was well ahead and projected to win easily.
    It was these counties that had 100’s of 1000’s of votes counted after midnight. Some when the counting was supposed to be officially stopped until the next morning.

    There is an interactive map. Knock yourself out.

    p.s. If you had of told me you knew very little about what happened in the 2020, then I wouldn’t have wasted my time responding to you.
    p.s.s

    Ok, so you accept that counties won and number of votes cast are two separate things

    I know how the electoral college works. You don’t seem to understand that the 2020 hinged on a handful of counties in a handful of states, as so many US elections do.
    Even the 2016 hinged on a handful of states though Trump needed many more counties due to the big ones being blue.

    Ok, thank you… will analyse and get back to you with a detailed response within the next 48 hrs or so.

    BBC a left wing nutjob site? Mate, an argument could be made it leans (small l) liberal but it is no way comparable to an outright far right conspiracy source like Hoft’s Gateway Pundit or whatever insanity the MyPillow guy spews out.

    Nov 3-5 (Aust. Time) I was switching between Fox and CNN, I watched Trumps middle of the night (D.C time) “frankly we won” speech live, maybe they were projecting an easyTrump win on OANN and Sky after Dark but they certainly were not doing so on Fox and CNN.

    In fact they were very cautious and were consistently advising that mail in ballots and the blue counties (i.e. the populous metropolitan areas) had many votes left to be counted and there would be a swing back to Biden …which is exactly what happened.

    As I stated earlier in the thread, I read about the “red mirage” or “blue shift” (because of mail in’s being counted last and the large metropolitan blue counties taking longer to count) numerous times before the election. Trump’s advisers knew about this too obviously, hence (I believe) Trump’s very deliberate strategy of announcing himself the winner on election night.

    Regarding;
    Clark County (NV), Pittsburgh and Philadelphia (PA), Wayne County (MI), Maricopa County (AZ), Madison (WI) and Fulton County, Georgia.

    It was these counties that had 100’s of 1000’s of votes counted after midnight..

    As I wrote about earlier in the thread, which (I think) you accept, mail in ballots were predicted before the election to heavily favour Biden based on the polling of voting method intentions of Trump vs Biden voters (mostly predicated on their differing levels of concern about Covid 19 and Trump’s consistent denigration of mail in ballots), these mail-in ballots took longer to count since they had to be removed from envelopes and verified before they are counted, that pattern was exacerbated by the fact that many states prohibited early counting of mail-in votes that arrived before Election Day.

    The states that prohibited early counting were PA, MS, MI, WI, and AL.

    So there’s Pittsburgh and Philadelphia (PA), Wayne County (MI) and Madison (WI), all 4 counties in 3 separate battleground states and controlled by Republican legislatures who would not allow pre-election day counting of the mailed ballots, (strange that helped out Trump with declaring victory on Election night, just a co-incidence I’m sure).

    That leaves Clark County (NV), Fulton County (GA) and Maricopa County (AZ), why did it take longer to count the ballots there and why did they swing those state results heavily to Biden?

    Clark County (NV) – An unprecedented amount of mail in votes (as detailed above, these take longer to count and heavily favored Biden in 2021 as predicted before the election based on polls of Biden and Trump voters).

    Fulton County Atlanta Georgia; This is Georgia’s most populous county (hence most votes to be counted), a traditionally Democratic stronghold and apparently a pipe burst Election day morning at State Farm Arena where Fulton County was counting votes (this delayed the counting of an estimated 50,000 votes).

    Maricopa County (AZ); the same as Fulton County, this is Arizona’s most populous county by far, this one was close the whole way (i.e. it didn’t heavily swing to Biden or Trump as votes were counted), it just took longer because there was over a million votes to count.

    Mr Humbug, my response has been ‘awaiting moderation’ for the last 24 hrs. I believe it is because I included too many links as sources for my answers.

    If Sinc hasn’t got to it within the next 24 hrs, I will try re-posting without as many links.
