SUNDAY ON '60 MINUTES,' FORMER VICE PRESIDENT AND FOREVER ALLEGED RAPIST JOE BIDEN DECLARED THAT ALSO ACCUSED RAPIST AND CURRENT PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP COULD WIN RE-ELECTION BECAUSE OF "HOW HE PLAYS.''
SOUNDING LIKE THE GEEZER HE IS -- IF ELECTED, JOE WOULD BE THE OLDEST PERSON EVER ELECTED PRESIDENT -- FROWNED ON THE 'YOUNGSTER' HE IS RUNNING AGAINST FOR BEING 3 YEARS YOUNGER AND CRITICIZED ''HOW HE PLAYS.''
REACHED FOR COMMENT BY THESE REPORTERS, EXCLUSIVE: MUST CREDIT BULLY BOY PRESS & CEDRIC'S BIG MIX -- JOE EXPLAINED, "KIDS LIKE DONNIE, I DON'T GET THEM WITH THEIR VIDEO GAMES AND THEIR SQUEEZE BOX AND THEIR ATARI GAMEBOYS AND GAMEGIRLS AND ALL THAT. BACK IN MY DAY, WE KNEW NOTHING BEAT A GOOD GAME OF JACKS. I COULD BEAT ANYONE AT TWOSIES -- ANYONE!"
Last night, the last of the duopoly debates took place. A bi-partisan grift known illogically as the 'presidential' debates takes place every four years. The pretense is that it's a debate between presidential candidates; however, that's not the case. The Democrats and the Republicans control the debates so only their candidates make the stage.
The Libertarian Party has been making steady gains each cycle and, this year, their candidate is on the ballot in all fifty states. However, Jo Jorgensen did not make the debate stage because these are not the presidential debates. If they were, they'd have to include all candidates -- even if it was just the 'serious' ones however you wanted to define 'serious' -- and they don't. Again, Dr Jo Jorgensen is on the ballot in all fifty states and yet she was not on the debate stage last night. Howie Hawkins is the Green Party candidate and he was not on the stage last night. Gloria La Riva, the Party for Socialism and Liberation, was not on the stage last night. There were other candidates not on the stage. We no longer cover Joseph Kishore's campaign because, clearly, he and David North had made the decision to campaign for Joe Biden. This has led to nutty conspiracy articles at the SEP party's website of WSWS in which you've got Donald Trump leading a death and kidnap squad in the US. That is just beyond stupid. WSWS is calling out JACOBIN magazine currently and, in better times, their criticism might stick. But with their nutty, tin-foil hats on currently, they just look like crazy idiots. They realized that this week due to a huge backlash (over the pimping for Joe Biden) which has resulted in a significant loss of web traffic and major complaints from the readers who remain at WSWS so they quickly rushed out Patrick Martin's two-part series on the corruption of the Democratic Party. It's too little, too late for some.
For us? We'll go back to highlighting WSWS after the election. Related, I'm not interested in The Hip-Hop Caucus and feel a little like Jackson Browne when he ad libs during "Cocaine" the following line: "But I wouldn't have been a user, even one more day, if you'd shown me how I was helping turn a profit for the CIA." Indeed.
The Hip-Hop Caucus was highlighted here in the past because of their connection to Rosa Clemente who was on the 2008 Green Party presidential ticket (she was presidential nominee Cynthia McKinney's running mate). So I wrongly thought they were some sort of independent organization -- as they present themselves to be. But at the end of last week, when we stopped noting them, we stopped because I hovered over one of their links in an e-mail. They're raising money for the Democratic Party. Now I know no one enforces the damn law, but in a functioning democracy, they'd be facing charges and be stripped of their current tax status for that little stunt.
After the election, we may highlight them. But I don't approve of that nonsense. NOW's sent things to public account non-stop throughout this election cycle. We've ignored them for the same reason of lack of independence. NOW is legally prohibited from endorsing or campaigning for a presidential candidate. They get around it with NOW PAC but no one even pretends the two are separate anymore. NOW PAC makes the endorsement, NPR brings on the NOW president (not NOW PAC president) and introduces her as the NOW president and then talks about NOW (not NOW PAC) endorsing a president. NOW should lose its tax status. These are abuses plain and simple, flagrant disregard for the law. I'm not going to reward that. Shame on Hip-Hop Caucus Go to ACT Blue currently and you can get in line to donate, for example, to 'progressive' Dianne Feinstein's 2024 campaign.
That's both horrifying and whore-ifying. Dianne shouldn't have run for re-election last time, she's too damn old. And no one wanted to face that reality until this month's Supreme Court nominee hearings. Right before them, Democrats in power finally realized Dianne wasn't all there. Too damn bad. They had no right to remove her at this late moment. No, she shouldn't have been Chair. But all of the problems some people finally discovered? Those were the reasons those of us in California endorsed Kevin de Leon. Maybe if busybodies from out of state had kept their noses out of it, Kevin could have been in the Senate and the Democrats could have had a real chair in charge of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Idiots caused this problem or, as Judge Judy might say, "Don't crap on my carpet and tell me it's a decoration."
I'm not interested in fakery. Which is why we stopped Joseph Kishore's campaign. We do try to cover all campaigns that we can. That goes beyond the presidency. Anyone who sends a press release for their campaign has been noted. By the same token, any member of Congress that sends out a press release gets noted. This year that policy could have been tested.
A pedophile is running for the presidency -- no, that's not a joke about someone's son. There's a third party candidate who's connected with DEN and that means he's probably a pedophile. I believe the documentary OPEN SECRET and several witnesses have established that. He was part of the debate that put forward presidential candidates not part of the duopoly. We did note that debate twice -- once with a partial clip (that's all that was up) and once with the full debate when it was later posted. We quoted Gloria La Riva from that debate. We also posted Howie Hawkins from that debate when his campaign did an edit of just his remarks.
When we reported on it, and quoted Gloria and only Gloria, a few e-mails came in asking why we didn't list everyone who participated? Good question. I was pressed for time and I also didn't feel it was my job to promote the man in that debate who is a pedophile. Had his campaign sent in a press release, would it have gone up?
I say yes. But I'm truly glad it didn't come in.
And goodness knows, we have more than enough to cover.
Such as last night's debate.
