PROFESSIONAL EMBARRASMENT BERNIE SANDERS DECLARED TODAY THAT IT IS VERY UNLIKELY HE WILL RUN FOR PRESIDENT AGAIN. THAT'S GOOD BECAUSE THE PEOPLE WHO SUPPORTED HIM IN 2020 ONLY TO BE BETRAYED HAVE ALREADY MADE IT CLEAR THAT HE'S ON HIS OWN.
REACHED FOR COMMENT, BERNIE SCREAMED THAT THESE REPORTERS WERE BLOCKING HIS DRIVE WAY AND HE WAS WAITING FOR "THE EVENING PAPER" TO BE DELIVERED.
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
Elise Swain (THE INTERCEPT) notes:
Biden’s accuser, Tara Reade, was one of eight women who registered complaints of inappropriate touching in April of last year — before Biden ever jumped into the presidential race. As Biden appeared likely to be the Democratic nominee, Reade came forward in late March and told her story about her former boss. In an interview with podcast host Katie Halper, Reade said Biden penetrated her vagina with his fingers. She alleges the incident occurred in 1993, while she was an aide in his Senate office. What Reade describes is rape, according to the Department of Justice’s own definition. In an interview with Megyn Kelly, Reade has called on Biden to end his presidential bid and “step forward and be held accountable.”
[. . .
The name Lucy Flores may be all but forgotten in an exhausting year of political reporting. Flores was the first to come forward and register publicly that an encounter with Biden made her deeply uncomfortable. In a viral essay, Flores described how, in 2015, then-Vice President Biden made her feel “uneasy, gross, and confused” as she campaigned for lieutenant governor in Nevada.
“I feel him come up close behind me, and that’s when he leans in and he lingers around my head,” Flores recounted on Intercepted. “I hear him kind of inhale. And then he proceeds to plant this low kiss on the top of my head.” (Biden denied that he had acted inappropriately toward Flores.)
Seven more women came forward with similar stories of Biden’s manner of unwanted, inappropriate touching. Descriptions told of how his hands intimately lingered on everything from the women’s necks, shoulders, backs, or thighs. Some say his forehead pressed against theirs. Noses so close that they rubbed together. Breathing in the smell of hair. Kissing the back of the head.
At THE GUARDIAN, Daniel Strauss points out:
A small group of insurgent Democratic congressional candidates have begun to raise concerns that Reade’s allegations are not being taken seriously enough. Rebecca Parson, a liberal Democrat challenging the Washington state congressman Derek Kilmer, said in an interview on Friday that Biden should step down over Reade’s allegations. Parson said she believes Reade and thinks the charges create too much of a vulnerability for Biden in the 2020 presidential election.
“I want to defeat Donald Trump in November and yes, I’m a progressive and I’m in the left-wing of the party, but something that really unites the people in the centrist wing and the progressive wing is we all want to defeat Trump,” Parson said. “I don’t think we do that with somebody who has all these allegations against him, especially because Donald Trump has assault allegations against him and unfortunately with Donald Trump, Trump doesn’t care about being a hypocrite.”
Parson added: “I think that Biden should withdraw and any one or more of the candidates who aren’t running should restart their campaign because the Democratic primary isn’t over yet.”
[. . .]
But Parson is not alone in arguing that at this point Biden should drop out of the race. A Politico/Morning Consult poll found that over a third of Democratic voters surveyed say the party should switch out Biden as their presumptive nominee because of the allegations.
On Friday, Tara Reade was attacked by sexist pig Bill Maher whose own issues with woman go way beyond the trash he tried with Rose McGowan.
Why did Tara Reade wait so long to come forward!!!!!!
Golly, gee, what woman wouldn't want to be attacked and smeared by one attack dog after another? Right? A woman who has been assaulted has to survive the original assault and then the second assault which takes place when she comes forward.
Ryan Grim takes on one of the lies being told about Tara here. Michael Tracey's one of the pigs that's repeated the lie. ("Media: Pig Boys continue their war on women" is Ava and my latest taking on pig boys Michael, Bob Somerby and Bill Maher.) Your whole life is gone through by the media when you come forward so why come forward?
The reality is that Joe has a long history of lying. Joe Biden. It's what derailed his first presidential run. And he's continued to lie over and over. But instead of acknowledging that, people want to smear Tara.
Joe's the one lying in New Hampshire that he graduated top of his law school class when he was 76th out of 85. In our piece, Ava and I include this:
In August of 2008, Alexander Cockburn (COUNTERPUNCH) wrote:
Biden is a notorious flapjaw. His vanity deludes him into believing that every word that drops from his mouth is minted in the golden currency of Pericles. Vanity is the most conspicuous characteristic of US Senators en bloc , nourished by deferential acolytes and often expressed in loutish sexual advances to staffers, interns and the like. On more than one occasion CounterPunch’s editors have listened to vivid accounts by the recipient of just such advances, this staffer of another senator being accosted by Biden in the well of the senate in the weeks immediately following his first wife’s fatal car accident.
I guess before he died in 2012, Alex was plotting with Tara Reade and, according to Bill Maher, Putin about how to take down Joe Biden in 2020. Alex obviously seized on the idea of traveling back in time to 2008 to write the above, right?
Joe Biden's history is ugly and messy. It's one lie after another. Does the fact that he's a politician excuse that long pattern of lying?
Nothing excuses his lying.
But it's not even acknowledged.
