Joementum: Protesters moved quickly to greet Biden on the campaign trail after his historic comeback.

Early polls in August 2015 showed Joe Biden's favorability ratings beating both Sec. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. When The New York Times began investigating the Biden-Ukraine scandal, Biden dropped out of the race in October 2015.[1] The New York Times reported details of the scandal in December 2015.[2]

A CNN focus group of registered Democrats in March 2019 roundly rejected Biden as a serious contender.[3] Biden's age and being out of touch seemed to be major factors. Biden launched his campaign anyway on April 25, 2019, by promoting the anti-Trump Charlottesville hoax and praising violent Antifa members.[4] The mother of Heather Heyer, who was killed by a lone nutcase in a melee between protesters, condemned Biden for exploiting her daughter's death for political gain.[5] Biden's promises his first act as president would be to defeat Donald Trump. While claiming to want to unite the country, Biden did the exact opposite in his statements.[6] President Trump noted the rigged insider support again, this time for Biden over Bernie Sanders.[7]

Joe Biden kicked off his presidential campaign with an easily debunked lie.

Policies

On April 25, 2019, Biden announced his candidacy against President Trump in 2020 and was the immediate Democratic party frontrunner.[8]

What Biden proposes and vows is essentially not much different than radical Sanders, as in part they promote death and perversion, and implement politically correct policies and inculcate liberal "values," and increase dependence upon government from Pre-K on up, with this expensive expansion of government being funded via the economy that it will work to distress.

  • LGBTQ

Biden promises to make enactment of the Equality Act during his first 100 days as President a top legislative priority, under which faithful Christians will be persecuted for obeying God and conscience. Biden states that while religious freedom is a fundamental American value, he opposes broad religious exemptions to existing nondiscrimination laws and policies across federal agencies and which he promises to reverse.

Biden intends to ban so-called “conversion therapy,” which is akin to Islamic outlawing of conversion, while promising to work to end suicide among young LGBTQ+ individuals. who are five times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers.

Biden also charges that Donald Trump and Mike Pence have given "hate against LGBTQ+ individuals" safe harbor, and cites such policies are requiring transgender "women" to sleep and use bathrooms according to what they biologically are.

In addition, Biden promises to decriminalize HIV exposure and transmission laws, under which such failures as not informing a partner of their positive HIV status, or in donating blood, or intentionally attempting to transmit HIV is a crime. However, although sodomy is the means of HIV transmission in over 80% of cases among men (2017),[9] yet Biden asserts that there is simply no “scientific basis” for HIV exposure and transmission laws.

Moreover, Biden believes every "transgender or non-binary person" should be able to change their "gender marker to “M,” “F,” or “X” on government identifications, passports, and other documentation," as well as use whatever facilities they feel corresponds to their gender identity. Including transgender students playing sports, using bathrooms, locker rooms and what prison a convicted criminal wants to be sent to.

Biden will also not permit adoption and foster care agencies that choose not to allow adoption by LGBTQ+ families to receive government funding.

Biden further promises to "ensure coverage for comprehensive care for LGBTQ+ Americans...to all appropriate health care treatments and resources...including gender confirmation surgery." As well as for HIV treatment and prevention, that of PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) which cost about $2,000 a day, and would include coverage for lifetime treatment for HIV, which costs approximately 400,000 dollars, both of which Medicaid coverage presently includes.[10] Currently PrEP will be covered without cost-sharing starting in 2021.

Biden will also reverse the transgender military ban and rescind the prohibition against LGBTQ+ Muslims from entering the country, and permanently make upholding LGBTQ+ rights a priority of the foreign policy of the United States.

In addition, Biden intends to "advance culturally appropriate public information campaigns to promote LGBTQ+ human rights and reduce biases," and "develop and institute implicit bias training programs for federal workers and contractors to address discrimination based on race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression." [11][12]

  • Health care

Expanding free preventive care (contraception) and protecting abortion as a constitutional right [to murder], doing everything in his administration's power to stop state laws that hinder that, including parental notification requirements, working to codify Roe v. Wade.

Restore federal funding for Planned Parenthood, preventing states from refusing Medicaid funding for Planned Parenthood and other providers that refer for abortions,and from obtaining Title X funds.

Make health care a right. Ensure health care protections regardless of gender identity, or sexual orientation at taxpayer expense.

Expand access to mental health care at taxpayer expense.[13]

Early polls in August 2015 showed Biden's favorability ratings beating both Sec. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. When The New York Times began investigating the Biden-Ukraine scandal, Biden dropped out of the race in October 2015.[14] The New York Times reported details of the scandal in December 2015.[15]

While Biden largely is running on Obama's legacy, Obama machine aides told reporters that Biden is "too old, too out of touch."[16] Former Obama Defense Secretary Robert Gates said that Biden had
been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.[17]
While Stacey Abrams of Georgia has proven herself as a loyal devotee of the Democrat plantation shilling for a much touted fake news mainstream media Biden/Abrams ticket and trashing Biden sexual assault accusers as liars, racist Biden aides told journalists behind her back 'no one takes Stacey seriously'.[18]

Within the first three weeks of his campaign, Biden twice denied assessments by the U.S. intelligence community of the threat posed by China to the U.S.[19] Biden's son, Hunter Biden, has extensive business ties[20] with the Chinese military. On April 25, 2019, Biden announced his candidacy against President Trump in 2020 and was the immediate Democratic party frontrunner.[21] The Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania received $70 million form the Communist Chinese government. The Biden Center did not disclose the money came from China, as required by law.[22] Biden personally received $900,000 from the Biden Center, money which may have originated with Chinese communists.[23]

After the Democrat's First Debate Biden suffered an across the board decline in his support. He lost ground with white Democrats (from 32% to 18%) and voters of color (from 33% to 19%), among voters without a college degree (from 35% to 18%) and college graduates (from 28% to 20%), with both men (from 38% to 24%) and women (from 29% to 16%), and among voters under 50 years old (from 21% to 6%) as well as voters aged 50 and over (from 42% to 33%). Most of Biden’s lost support in these groups shifted almost equally toward Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

Progressives claim at the age of 76, Biden "needs to grow" to overcome his racism and bigoted treatment of women.[24] Anita Hill remarked that her private conversation with Joe Biden shortly before Biden entered the race was "deeply unsatisfying." Biden hired Bernie Sanders 2016 campaign press secretary, CNN political analyst Symone Sanders, as a senior adviser to play the race card. Symone Sanders donated money to Pete Buttigieg a month before taking the job with Biden. Symone Sanders is famous for her "we don't need white people" remark on CNN.[25]

Biden called the impeachment of Bill Clinton on 11 felony charges a "partisan lynching".[26]

Biden is known for flip-flopping his political positions.[27] Commentator David Harsanyi remarked,
at his present political trajectory, Biden may end up promising to perform late-term abortions on transgendered Guatemalan migrants with his bare hands by the time the debate rolls around.[28]
Biden stated he opposed moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem despite previously claiming to support such an action.[29] Biden called the impeachment of Bill Clinton on 11 felony charges a "partisan lynching".[30]

As a serial groper, Biden promised a "hands-on" approach to governing.[31] With a reputation as a street fighter, Biden was KO'd in the first round of debates by a girl in a performance unworthy of even Dan Quayle. Reeling from the knock out blow, Biden warned his competitors that, after eight years in the Obama administration, he had the 'dirt' on all of them.[32] Michelle Obama refused to defend Biden's stance on segregation.[33] His poll numbers crashed after being outed as a racist.

Biden's campaign suffered a serious blow in September 2019 when it became known that he is currently under investigation by Ukrainian prosecutors for misusing his power as U.S. Vice President to interfere in a money-laundering investigation of his son,[34] Hunter Biden.[35] Biden displayed his contempt and disrespect when questioned at a townhall meeting, calling ordinary citizens and voters "damn liars."[36]

Biden stated he opposed moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem despite previously claiming to support such an action.[37]

You ain't Black

Biden was roundly criticized by Black leaders for his racist comments.[38]
See also: 2020 Antifa riots

Democrat presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden made a particularly offensive and egregious racist comment toward African American's during a radio interview.[39] Biden's comments were an effort at voter intimidation. Black Entertainment Television (BET) co-founder Bob Johnson called him out saying in part,

"This proves unequivocally that the Democratic nominee believes that black people owe him their vote without question; even though we as black people know it is exactly the opposite. He should spend the rest of his campaign apologizing to every black person he meets."[40]

Biden won the Democrat presidential nomination when South Carolina Rep. James Clyburn endorsed him, and the dominos of the Democrat machine fell into place. In short choreographed order, the remaining white candidates, Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg, Tom Steyer, Michael Bloomberg and a host of local officials began goosestepping in lockstep. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Julian Castro, and Tulsi Gabbard had been driven out earlier in a rigged process that allowed rich white billionaires - Steyer and Bloomberg - to buy their way in once all the minority candidates were forced out.[41] Clyborn admitted he cringed when he heard Biden's racist attack on Black people.[42]

Biden cynically tried to take advantage of George Floyd's killing, which occurred only days later, to repair his relations with Blacks by attacking the police and accusing them of systemic racism. Police groups and unions which Biden courted since the 1990s on behalf of the Clinton administration with the Biden Crime Bill, mass incarceration, and effort to put 100,000 new cops on the street to deal with "Superpredators", responded by withdrawing their support.[43]

Chinese collusion

Biden toasts CCP dictator Xi Jinping. According to the Black Book of Communism, the leftist regime of Beijing has murdered more than 60 million of its own people over its 70 years of existence.

Five months into the Obama administration in June 2009 Hunter Biden and Chris Heinz, stepson of Senate Foreign Relations Committee chair John Kerry formed Rosemount Seneca. The firm partnered with the Thornton Group run by James Bulger, and the Bank of China, to form Bohai Harvest RST (BHR) in China. Devon Archer is a longtime friend of former Secretary of State John Kerry and of stepson Chris Heinz and James Bulger, the nephew of notorious Boston gangster "Whitey" Bulger. Whitey Bulger was the head of the Boston Irish mafia who enjoyed federal protection under FBI director Robert Mueller as an informant.[44] Bulger was convicted of 19 murders that occurred while under Mueller's protection; some have linked the Bulger klan to as many as 52 murders while Mueller was the United States Attorney in Boston.[45] Whitey Bulger was murdered in prison at the age of 89 a few months before the Mueller Report was released.

The Bank of China is owned by the Chinese government and closely connected with the Chinese military and intelligence services. Biden, Heinz, and Archer transferred and sold "duel use" technology to the Chinese military which was used to create the Chinese drone program and replicate the Chinese version of the F-15 fighter.[46] Unsurprisingly, Joe Biden disregards the assessment of U.S. intelligence agencies and doesn't regard China as a strategic threat.[47][48]

Bohai Harvest RST (BHR) invested in an app the Chinese leftwing communist government is using to surveil ethnic minority Muslims in western China. Over one million Muslims living in the region are now incarcerated in Chinese gulags.

Joseph Biden is a supporter of the Trans Pacific Partnership TPP which would destroy morew middle class jobs.

CCP virus

Biden's chief Covid-19 adviser Ron Klain, a former top Obama administration official, advised Biden and the public in February 2020 that there was "no reason to to be fearful, no reason really to panic or anything like that”.[49] Biden suggested a Presidential Task Force be appointed to deal with the CCP coronavirus, which he referred to as "the Luhan virus",[50] two months after President Trump appointed the task force.[51]

Sexual assault allegations

The Washington Post calls Biden "Creepy Uncle Joe" for his habit of groping wives and children.
See also: Creepy Uncle Joe

According to the Washington Post, female Secret Service agents did not want to work with Biden. Whenever Biden's wife was not home, Biden stripped naked. The female Secret Service agents where afraid to report incidents to their superiors in fear for their jobs.[52] In the days just prior to his announcement to run, no less than eight women of the MeToo movement complained of Biden's inappropriate grabbing and touching. Even Biden's wife, Jill, has been visibly seen creeped-out by Biden's awkward attempts at public displays of affection.[53] Biden responded by admitting America has become more conservative and then mocked critics and victims in a speech before firefighters. Biden told The View he needs to be more "cognizant" about groping women and children.[54] Even Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez remained unconvinced of Biden's alleged flip on his touchy-feelly approach to women in politics.[55]

Obama White House Communications Director and Joe Biden 2020 presidential campaign manager Anita Dunn was a great admirer of Chairman Mao and was deeply inspired by the Cultural Revolution.[56][57]

Tara Reade is a former Senate aide for Joe Biden.[58] She was trying to tell her story since it happened in 1993. It's a story about sexual assault, digital penetration which is rape, retaliation, and silencing.

Tara Reade had already come forward with part of her story after Lucy Flores accused Joe Biden of touching her inappropriately in April 2019. Tara Reade was one of seven other women to share their own stories about Biden. Reade told reporters about the way Biden would put his hands on her shoulders and run his fingers up and down her neck. She considered talking about the rest of her story but didn't because her claims of sexual harassment got her doxed and smeared as a Russian agent in April 2019.[59]

Then in January 2020 Reade tried to come forward again. This time she contacted Times Up Now, the sexual harassment organization. Ryan Grim at The Intercept reported the organization said they couldn't help her because Joe Biden was a candidate for federal office and supporting a case against him could jeopardize their nonprofit status.[60] They also pointed out that the public relations firm that works on behalf of the Times Up Now Legal Defense Fund is SKD Knickerbocker, and SKDKnickerbocker managing director is Obama's former Communication's director, the notorious Maoist Anita Dunn.[61] Dunn is the top adviser to Joe Biden.[62]

Tara's brother and her good friend recall being told about the assault by Tara at the time it happened in 1993. Tara reached out to countless people to try to tell her story and nobody, not even the organization that was made to support women like her would listen to her. This was an actual physical assault.[63] Tara Reade was asked to take a duffel bag to Joe Biden, so her boss in the office called her and said, "Hey you need to bring this to Joe Biden right away. Hurry." So she brought it to him at a gym. Reade said,

Tara Reade: He was at first talking to someone. I could see him at a distance and then they went away. And then we were in like the side area, and he just said, "Hey c'mere Tara," and then I handed him the thing. And he greeted me. He remembered my name and then it we were alone. And it was the strangest thing. There was no like exchange. Really. He just had me up against the wall. And I was wearing like a skirt, and you know, business skirt. But I wasn't wearing stockings. It was kind of a hot day that day and I was wearing heels. And I remember my legs had been hurting from the marble, you know, of the Capitol, like walking.

And I remember that kind of stuff. I remember like I was wearing a blouse, and he just had me up against the wall. And the wall was cold. And I remember it happened all at once. The gym bag, I don't know where, when I handed it to him, was gone. And then his hands were on me and underneath my clothes. And yeah, and then he went um, he went down my skirt, but then up inside it. And he penetrated me with his finger. He was kissing me at the same time, and he was saying something to me. He said several things and I can't remember everything. He said, I remember a couple of things, I remember him saying first, as he was doing it "Do you want to go somewhere else?" and then him saying to me when I pulled away, he got finished doing what he was doing, and I pulled back. And he said "Come on man, I heard you liked me." It's that phrase stayed with me because I kept thinking what I might have said. And I can't remember exactly if he said, "I thought" or "I heard", but it's like he implied that I had done this.
I don't know, for me it was like everything shattered in that moment. Because I knew, like we were alone. It was over, right? He wasn't trying to do anything more. But I looked up to him. He was like my father's age. He was this champion of women's rights in my eyes, and I couldn't believe it was happening. It seems surreal. And I just I knew I just felt sick, because when he pulled back, he looked annoyed. And he said something else to me that I don't want to say. And then he said - I must have looked shocked and he grabbed me by the shoulders. I don't know how I looked, but I must have looked something because he grabbed me by the shoulders and he said, "You're okay. You're fine. You're okay. You're fine." And then he walked away and he went on with his day.
And what I remember next is being in the Russell Building, like where the big windows are and the stairs by myself. And my body - I was shaking everywhere because - and it was cold. All of a sudden, I was, I don't know, I felt like I was shaking just everywhere and I was trying to grasp what just happened. and what I should do, or what I should say. But I knew it was bad because he was so angry. Like when he left. Like I could feel, you know, how when you know someone's angry. They don't necessarily say anything. He smiles when he's angry and you can just feel it emanating from him.
Interviewer: Do you want to share that thing that you said you don't like, you said like I don't want to say what he said that thing he said to you?
Tara Reade: Um yeah. I can, I guess I could. I mean....
Interviewer: You you don't have to.
Tara Reade: That's okay. It's just um, it's almost like giving a weapon to them.
Interviewer:' 'How so?
Tara Reade: Well it's like I don't want them to know how much it hurt. I don't you know. don't want him to know.
Interviewer: That you remembered it?
Tara Reade: Yeah. Just... just I don't know um....but yeah, I can say it, um yeah.
There was something he said that I didn't want to say. And I didn't want to say it because it's the thing that stays in my head over and over. Like, um, it's the thing that kind of stayed with me over the years. But he said, when he got me against the wall after I pulled away. And he said, "Hey, I heard you liked me". I knew he was angry right after he took his finger, he just like pointed at me and he said. "You're nothing to me". And he just looked at me, he goes "You're nothing. Nothing." And then I must have reacted and I think he only said it twice. I just heard the word "nothing" and, and I must have reacted, because that's when he took me by the shoulders and he said "You're okay. You're fine. You're okay."

But then afterwards, like it kept replaying in my head there, like last April [2019] when all that stuff came out. I got really, really sad about it. And the thing that I remember most, almost more than the assault itself was, just being told that I was nothing. And he was right. That's how people treated me. And I have no platform. So people want to know why women don't come forward, that's a good example.

For years, Biden failed to apologize to Anita Hill personally for the way she was treated when she testified in the 1991 confirmation of Clarence Thomas.[64][65][66][67]

Upon his announcement Biden immediately secured the endorsement of prominent sleaze lawyer and former Democratic hopeful Michael Avenatti. Avenatti shares many of Biden's core precepts, including his racist agenda remarking that the Democratic nominee "had better be a white male."[68] Avenatti, a chief critic of President Trump, dropped out of the race after being arrested for felonious assault and battery on a woman and extortion. An unrepentant racist, Biden says immigrants should have to speak English.[69]

Biden said enshrining LGBT+ protections into labor and civil rights laws would be his priority. Passing the Equality Act “will be the first thing” he would ask for.[70]

Campaign staffers physically block reporters when asking Biden questions, then photographing anyone who objects.

Biden's mental faculties have been called into question: he confused UK prime minister Theresa May with Margaret Thatcher.[71] According to mental health experts, Biden's slurring of words and phrases and verbal inarticulateness marks a decline in mental abilities.

Biden-Ukraine collusion scandal

Obama (left) appointed Joe Biden (center) to dole out $1 Billion to the Ukraine for which the Biden Family, thru Hunter Biden (right) received $50,000 a month in kickbacks.[72]
See also: Biden-Ukraine scandal

As Vice President, Biden oversaw the disbursement of $1 billion allocated by the U.S. to the new government of Ukraine. In 2014, Biden's son Hunter Biden, was appointed to the board of directors of Burisma Holdings, the largest oil and gas company in Ukraine. Hunter Biden was hired by Mykola Zlochevsky, who served as Ukraine's ecology minister in the previous administration. Hunter Biden was paid $166,000 per month. The money was split with the nephew of Whitey Bulger.

Zlochevsky came under investigation by the new administration for alleged embezzlement of $5 billion while ecology minister. The prosecutor traced payments made to Hunter Biden. Vice President Biden threatened the new Ukrainian administration to withhold $1 billion in U.S. allocated funds unless the prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden was fired.[73]

Biden bragged about having caused the firing of the Ukraine prosecutor to a CFR conference.

U.S. banking records show Hunter Biden's firm, Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC, received regular transfers — usually more than $166,000 a month — from Burisma from spring 2014 through fall 2015, during a period when Joe Biden was the main U.S. official dealing with Ukraine. Biden threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, sending Ukraine toward insolvency, if it didn't immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin who was investigating his son, Hunter. Biden recounted,
"'You’re not getting the billion'. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money'...Well, [SOB], he got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time."[35][74]

Yuriy Lutsenko, who replaced Shokin as the prosecutor looking into Burisma, said the evidence in the Burisma case he'd like to present to William Barr, particularly the vice president's intervention.

Between April 2014 and October 2015, more than $3 million was paid out by Burisma to an account linked to Biden's and Devon Archer's Rosemont Seneca firm, according to the financial records placed in a federal court file in Manhattan in another case against Archer. The bank records show that, on most months when Burisma money flowed, two wire transfers of $83,333.33 each were sent to the Rosemont Seneca–connected account on the same day. The same Rosemont Seneca–linked account typically then paid Hunter Biden one or more payments ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 each. Ukrainian prosecutors reviewed internal company documents and wanted to interview Hunter Biden and Archer about why they had received such payments, but couldn't because of Joe Biden's intervention.

On September 4, 2019, former Prosecutor General Victor Shokin made a sworn affidavit outlining Joe Biden's shakedown.[75]

Biden was needed for Deep State coup 2.0. When he was no longer needed he was dispatched to the ash-heap of history.

Eric Ciaramella

Deep State informant Eric Ciaramella, an alleged second-hand hearsay "whistleblower."

Deep State informant Eric Ciaramella was assigned to the Obama White House by Russia collusion hoax mastermind John Brennan..He was detailed to the staff of National Security Council Susan Rice and Vice President Joe Biden.[76] Ciaramella worked on Ukrainian issues for Biden in 2015 and 2016 during the time Biden was the "point man" handing out U.S. taxpayer cash to Ukraine.

Ciaramella worked with Democratic National Committee operative Alexandra Chalupa to dig up dirt on the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election. Ciarmella invited Chalupa into the Obama White House for meetings.[77] Chalupa a key figure behind manufacturing the Russia collusion hoax and in the Ukrainian collusion scandal with the Atlantic Council and Crowdstrike. Ciaramella set the Trump impeachment inquiry in motion.

In May 2017, Ciaramella was instrumental in helping generate the “Putin fired Comey” narrative. A Ciaramella email the day after Comey's firing ended up in the media, which is reported to have allegedly called Comey “crazy, a real nut job.” Ciaramella is said to have argued that “President Putin suggested that President Trump fire Comey.” In the days after Comey's firing, this presidential action was used to further political and media calls for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate supposed ‘Russia collusion.’ Ciaramella was dismissed from the Trump White House in June 2917 and accused of illegal leaks and working against the interests of the United States government. Ciaramella returned to the CIA.

In August 2019 The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG), Michael Atkinson, referred to Ciaramella as one who has

“some indicia of an arguable political bias … in favor of a rival political candidate"

The ICIG was severely criticized for changing the rules at the last minute and allowing a third-party "whistleblower" hearsay complaint.

Racism

In addition to Biden's longstanding alliance with fellow Democrat segregationists in the U.S. Senate, Biden is known for a history of making racially insensitive remarks.

Segregation

Biden called segregation "a matter of Black pride" and pushed for a Constitutional Amendment to outlaw Court ordered de-segregation.[78]
Biden reopened the debate over the crimes of the Democrats slave power[79] at a time some far leftists were pushing for slave reparations.[80] In 1972 Biden argued that segregation was good for Blacks and was what they wanted.
“I think the concept of busing … that we are going to integrate people so that they all have the same access and they learn to grow up with one another and all the rest, is a rejection of the whole movement of black pride, a rejection of the entire black awareness concept, where black is beautiful, black culture should be studied; and the cultural awareness of the importance of their own identity, their own individuality.”[81]
Biden led a coalition of segregationists that was opposed by Republican Sen. Edward Brooke, the first African American senator elected since Democrats forced the end of Reconstruction after the Civil War. National Public Radio's David Ensor asked Biden, "What about a constitutional amendment? Isn’t that what you’re gonna have to end up supporting if you want to stop court ordered busing, too?" Biden responded,
"That would clearly do it. I’m hopeful, and I have — now that I have some sort of new allies in this area, it’s become respectable now for liberals to at least say publicly what they’ve been saying in private, that busing doesn’t work. We are trying to figure out whether or not we can come up with an innovative piece of legislation which would limit the remedy, and I don’t — honestly don’t know whether we can come up with something constitutional. And if we can’t, I will not in an attempt to eliminate busing violate the Constitution. I won’t do that. The only way, if I’m gonna go at it, I’m gonna go at it through a Constitutional Amendment if it can’t be done through a piece of legislation."
Ensor reported that Biden proposed renewing segregation because busing wasn't working, and Biden was afraid that older liberal colleagues were blind to how Black separatists felt about their children being bused to white schools.
"There are those of we social planners who think somehow that if we just subrogate man’s individual characteristics and traits by making sure that a presently heterogeneous society becomes a totally homogeneous society, that somehow we’re going to solve our social ills. Quite to the contrary."
Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on race, color, or national origin in programs or activities receiving federal financial assistance.[82] By 1975, Biden authored an amendment to gut Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Politico writes of the whole sordid affair,
Biden morphed into a leading anti-busing crusader—all the while continuing to insist that he supported the goal of school desegregation, he only opposed busing as the means to achieve that end. This stance, which many of Biden’s liberal and moderate colleagues also held, was clever but disingenuous. It enabled Biden to choose votes over principles, while acting as if he was not doing so....In a seminal moment, the Senate thus turned against desegregation. The Senate had supported the 1964 Civil Rights Act, 1965 Voting Rights Act and 1968 Fair Housing Act....the Senate remained the last bastion for those who supported strong integration policies. Biden stormed that bastion...[78]
Sen. James Abourezk of South Dakota related how Biden reacted when Abrourezek tried to block the amendment:
‘Abourezk, you **********, if I ever vote for another one of your bills, it'll be a cold day in hell.'

‘Calm down, Joe,' I told him, ‘You're eventually gonna thank me for doing this.'

‘Like hell I will you dirty *******.'

A few days later, Biden came into the scheduled committee meeting, this time with a broad, friendly grin aimed directly at me.

‘Jesus, Abourezk, you were right,' he said. ‘I am gonna thank you. You should see the Delaware newspapers—big front-page headlines saying, ‘Biden Battles Liberals in Washington.' He was unabashedly elated. ‘They love me back home, how did you know this would happen?'[83]
Republican Sen. Edward Brooke, the first black senator ever to be popularly elected, called Biden's amendment “the greatest symbolic defeat for civil rights since 1964.” Brooke accused Biden of leading an assault on integration.

Prof. Ronnie Dunn said opposition to busing was motivated by racism and that without the court-ordered policy Biden probably would not have become vice president in 2009. “What I find ironic is that [Biden] was the vice president under a president who, if it hadn’t been for the social interaction that occurred during the era of busing, I argue we likely would not have seen the election of Barack Obama." Dunn, an Urban Studies professor at Cleveland State University and author of the book Boycotts, Busing, & Beyond, said Biden made the case in favor of maintaining segregation. "That was an argument against desegregation.” Dunn said Biden must address the issue if he runs for president. “People have to be held accountable."[84]

Biden's opposition to integration didn't stop there. HuffPo reported:
In 1977, two black men nominated for key Justice Department posts by President Jimmy Carter easily won approval from the Senate Judiciary Committee. After confirmation by the full Senate, Drew Days III became the nation’s first black head of the department’s civil rights division and Wade McCree became the second black solicitor general. Only one member of the committee voted against them. It wasn’t segregationists Strom Thurmond (R-S.C.) or James Eastland (D-Miss.). It wasn’t even former Ku Klux Klan member Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.). The lone Judiciary Committee vote against the two men was Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.).[85]

In 1981 Biden said in a Senate hearing, “sometimes even George Wallace is right about some things.” Wallace is famous for saying in 1963, “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.”[86]

In a farewell address to retiring Democrat segregationist Sen. John Stennis in 1986 Biden said:
"To think that I would be one day on the floor of the United States Senate, being paid such accolades by such a man of character and courage as John Stennis is beyond my wildest dreams. And I mean that sincerely."[87]

When Biden announced his candidacy Politico attempted to poo-poo and explain away Biden and liberal Democrat racism with a back-handed slap at school vouchers for minority students, which liberal elites have strenuously opposed ever since the Biden Amendment passed:

School desegregation, as part of a broader suite of civil rights reforms, was once as a vital component of the Democratic Party platform. Yet since the 1970s, Democrats, in the face of concerted white backlash, have largely accommodated themselves to increasing segregation in public schools across the nation. Party leaders, even the most progressive among them, rarely propose serious solutions to this vexing problem. A sincere critique of Biden’s busing record would require a broader reckoning of the Democratic Party’s—and by extension the nation’s—abandonment of this central goal of the civil rights movement. And it’s hard to see that happening anytime soon.[88]
Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey condemned the 2020 Democrat primary frontrunner at the Juneteenth annual commemoration of Republican Abraham Lincoln ending slavery in the United States.
You don’t joke about calling black men 'boys'...frankly, I’m disappointed that he hasn’t issued an immediate apology for the pain his words are dredging up for many Americans. He should.[79]

Superpredators

Biden colluded with segregationists to undermine the Supreme Court decision of Brown vs. Board.
In a 1993 Senate floor speech, Biden warned of "predators on our streets" who were "beyond the pale" and said they must be cordoned off from the rest of society, because the justice system did not know how to rehabilitate them. Biden described a
"cadre of young people, tens of thousands of them, born out of wedlock, without parents, without supervision, without any structure, without any conscience developing because they literally ... because they literally have not been socialized, they literally have not had an opportunity."
Biden went on in the same breath,
"It doesn't matter whether or not the person that is accosting your son or daughter or my son or daughter, my wife, your husband, my mother, your parents, it doesn't matter whether or not they were deprived as a youth. It doesn't matter whether or not they had no background that enabled them to become socialized into the fabric of society. It doesn't matter whether or not they're the victims of society. The end result is they're about to knock my mother on the head with a lead pipe, shoot my sister, beat up my wife, take on my sons."
Biden said, that he didn't care "why someone is a malefactor in society" and that criminals needed to be "away from my mother, your husband, our families." Biden added "we should focus on them now" because "if we don't, they will, or a portion of them, will become the predators 15 years from now."

Biden's comments echoed first lady Hillary Clinton's inflammatory statement about "Superpredators" with "no conscience, no empathy" and "we need to bring them to heel."

Biden Crime Bill

Main article: The New Jim Crow

Biden was a staunch opponent of school desegregation in the 1970s and leading crusader for mass incarceration in the 1980s and 1990s. Biden described African American felons in the aftermath of the Central Park 5 jogger case as 'predators' too sociopathic to rehabilitate,[89] and white supremacist senators as his friends.

Biden boasts as one of his greatest legislative achievements passage of the 1994 Crime bill which locked up 10% of the Black adult male population of the United States.[90][91]

When President George H.W. Bush asked for a record increase in funding to fight the War on Drugs, Biden told a TV interviewer
"In a nutshell, the President's plan does not include enough police officers to catch the violent thugs, enough prosecutors to convict them, enough judges to sentence them or enough prison cells to put them away for a long time."[92][93]
The Superpredator Act of 1994. Feinstein, Kerry and Biden are clearly visible with President Clinton. The bill is known for its sentencing disparities which led to mass incarceration of Blacks.[94]
Biden, Ted Kennedy, and Strom Thurmond worked on proposals that raised maximum penalties, removed a directive requiring the US Sentencing Commission to take into account prison capacity, and created the cabinet-level “drug czar” position. In 1984, they passed the Comprehensive Crime Control Act, which, among other things, abolished parole, imposed a less generous cap on “good time” sentence reductions, and allowed the Sentencing Commission to issue more punitive guidelines.

Biden bragged on the Senate floor that it was under his and Thurmond's leadership that Congress passed a law sending anyone caught with a rock of cocaine the size of a quarter to jail for a minimum of five years - the notoriously racist hundred-to-one sentencing disparity between crack and powder cocaine. In the same speech Biden took credit for civil asset forfeiture and seizure laws, and demanded to know why Papa Bush hadn't sentenced more drug dealers to life in prison or exercise the death penalty once Congress had given him that power.[95]

Biden's version of a new crime bill added more than forty crimes that would be eligible for the death penalty. Biden boasted “we do everything but hang people for jaywalking.”[96] The NAACP and other groups lobbied against the bill.[97] Although the 1991 crime bill was defeated by Republicans, the 1994 Biden/Clinton crime bill was passed.[98]

By 2001, the United States had the highest rate of incarceration in the world. Human Rights Watch reported that in seven states, African Americans constituted 80 to 90 percent of all drug offenders even though they were no more likely than whites to use or sell illegal drugs. Prison admissions for drug offenses reached a level in 2000 for African Americans more than 26 times the level they had been under Ronald Reagan.[99] Biden's "social planning" had proven effective.

In May 2019 journalist and historian Shaun King observed,
I’ve heard a very dangerous lie being told about how the systems of mass incarceration were built in this nation. I didn’t expect to have to respond this way because I didn’t expect Joe Biden to lie about the 1994 Crime Bill. He wrote it. He fought for it. And the results were devastating. Every single expert on this topic agrees.

This week Joe Biden took the stance that not only is he not sorry for the Crime Bill, but that it didn’t even increase mass incarceration. And it’s shameful because either he’s willfully lying, which is horrible, or he’s just plain ignorant about the true impact of the bill, which is also horrible. Either way, I have a major problem with it because these laws are still in effect and they are doing damage in our communities every single day, 24 hours a day.[100]
The Leftist Jacobin magazine summed up Biden's record:
"It’s not as if Biden didn’t know what he was doing.... He just didn’t care. Biden had made a calculated decision that the elections he would win were worth the damage he inflicted....
But even if Biden has subsequently learned the error of his ways, the rank cynicism and callousness involved in his two-decade-long championing of carceral policies should be more than enough to give anyone pause about his qualities as a leader, let alone a progressive one."[101]

Mass incarceration

Sen. Cory Booker told the NAACP convention in Detroit in response to another so-called "criminal justice reform" proposal by Biden:
For a guy who helped to be an architect of mass incarceration, this in an inadequate solution to what is a raging crisis in our country.[102]

Biden now advocates for a man sentenced to prison to choose to be incarcerated in a women's prison.[103]

2019 debates

Biden attempted to clarify some of his positions on segregation and race in the pre-primary Third Debate. By the time he finished he had insinuated that black parents didn't know how to raise their children.[104]

Linsey Davis: Mr. Vice President, I want to talk to you about inequality in schools and race. In a conversation about how to deal with segregation in schools back in 1975, you told a reporter, “I don’t feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather. I feel responsible for what the situation is today, for the sins of my own generation, and I’ll be damned if I feel responsible to pay for what happened 300 years ago.” You said that some 40 years ago, but as you stand here tonight, what responsibility do you think that Americans need to take to repair the legacy of slavery in our country?

Joe Biden: Well, they have to deal with the … Look, there is institutional segregation in this country. And from the time I got involved, I started dealing with that. Redlining, banks, making sure that we are in a position where—

Look, we talk about education. I propose that what we take is those very poor schools, the Title 1 schools, triple the amount of money we spend from $15 to $45 billion a year. Give every single teacher a raise to the equal of … A raise of getting out of the $60,000 level.

No. 2, make sure that we bring in to the help with the stud—the teachers deal with the problems that come from home. The problems that come from home, we need… We have one school psychologist for every 1,500 kids in America today. It’s crazy. The teachers are required—I’m married to a teacher. My deceased wife is a teacher. They have every problem coming to them.

Make sure that every single child does, in fact, have three, four, and five-year-olds go to school. School! Not day care, school. We bring social workers into homes of parents to help them deal with how to raise their children. It’s not that they don’t want to help. They don’t know what— They don’t know what quite what to do. Play the radio. Make sure the television—excuse me, make sure you have the record player on at night. The phone—make sure the kids hear words. A kid coming from a very poor school—er, a very poor background will hear 4 million words fewer spoken by the time they get there.

Davis: Thank you, Mr. Vice President.

Biden: No, I’m going to go like the rest of them do, twice over, OK? Because here’s the deal. The deal is that we’ve got this a little backwards. And by the way, in Venezuela, we should be allowing people to come here from Venezuela. I know Maduro. I’ve confronted Maduro. No. 2, you talk about the need to do something in Latin America. I’m the guy that came up with $740 million to see to it those three countries, in fact, change their system so people don’t have to chance to leave. You’re all acting like we just discovered this yesterday! Thank you very much.[105]

Even The Young Turks slammed Biden for his racist answer in blaming parents for not knowing how to raise their children rather than answering question.[106]

Obamagate scandal

See also: Obamagate timeline

President Obama authorized illegal domestic spying on political opponents, the misuse of the FBI, and set in motion the coup against President Trump during an Oval Office meeting on January 5, 2017 in the presence of Vice President Joe Biden, according to an email memorandum recorded by National Security Advisor Susan Rice .

  • 4 January 2017. Wednesday. Washington FBI field office recommends closing the FBI investigation of General Flynn due to “no derogatory information.”[107]
  • Peter Strzok immediately responds to the FBI team [main headquarters] saying: “don’t do it yet’.
  • Rod Rosenstein was aware of there was no basis for investigating Gen. Flynn;
  • Mueller team knew there was no derogatory information against Gen. Flynn from its outset in May 2017.
  • The Hill: FBI never examined hacked DNC servers itself: report.[108]
  • Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) report completed, written by John Brennan and Strzok, both classified and public versions. Some earlier reports refer to it as the Joint Assessment Report or JAR. Congressional investigators later found portions of Brennan's ICA "did not employ proper analytic tradecraft" and "deviated from established CIA practice."[109] Brennan attached two pages of sexual innuendo from the Clinton-Steele dossier to the assessment.[110]
  • 5 January 2017. Thursday Morning. FBI Director James Comey testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee that the DNC refused multiple requests to examine their servers after allegations of hacking.[111] As of August 2018, the FBI still never examined the servers to see if any hacking indeed took place. DNC continues to deny FBI ever made any requests.[112] Trump tweets, "The Democratic National Committee would not allow the FBI to study or see its computer info after it was supposedly hacked by Russia.”[113] Trump sends follow-up tweet, "So how and why are they so sure about hacking if they never even requested an examination of the computer servers? What is going on?”[114] Comey additionally lied to Congress in a classified setting about the true origins of the Steele dossier.[115]
  • Afternoon. Oval Office meeting to frame the President-elect. Obama, Biden, Rice, Yates, James Clapper, Brennan and Comey in attendance. Susan Rice sent an email to herself about a secret Oval Office meeting where the Clinton-Steele dossier is discussed;[116][117][118] (the email was written and sent to herself 15 minutes after Trump was sworn in on Jan. 20):[119]
"On January 5, following a briefing by IC leadership on Russian hacking during the 2016 Presidential election, President Obama had a brief follow-on conversation with FBI Director Jim Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates in the Oval Office. Vice President Biden and I were also present.

President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities "by the book". The President stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.

From a national security perspective, however, President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia.

[Redacted section of unknown length]

The President asked Comey to inform him if anything changes in the next few weeks that should affect how we share classified information with the incoming team. Comey said he would."[120]

At the conclusion of the briefing, Obama asks Sally Yates and James Comey to remain. Together with Susan Rice, this is where the “by the book” comment comes into play. The 90-day surveillance period under the FISA warrant would have had just a bit over two weeks left to run — it was set to expire just as Trump was to take office. (Reporting suggests that there may also have been a FISA warrant on Paul Manafort around this time.) The Obama administration was therefore confronting a deadline if the FISA warrant was to be renewed while Obama was still in power. The officials in the meeting would need to figure out how the investigation could continue despite the fact that its central focus, Trump, was about to be sworn in as president. Rice’s “by the book” bunkum is transparent: Obama officials claimed to adhere to a book that forbade consultations between political leaders and investigators. But here they were consulting. So Rice tried to cover the tracks in her email: She revises history such that the consultation morphs into a mere friendly reminder that Obama wanted everything done by the book.[121] Former Obama White House Counsel and now attorney for Susan Rice, Kathryn Ruemmler, later states [February 23] the meeting discussed "particularly Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn" who was cleared by the FBI as a national security risk the day before.

Biden's health

Vice Presidential selection

Many have expressed concern if Biden is up to the rigors of campaigning, let alone the duties of office.

On the day The Washington Post recommended progressive rising star Andrew Gillum as Biden's Vice Presidential choice "if Democrats want to win",[122] Gillum was found by Miami emergency responders to a methamphetamine overdose nude in a hotel room with two other nude men.[123] Under the precedent established by Democrats in the Monica Lewinsky scandal while Biden served in the Senate, "what a person does in their private life is nobody's business". However, Gillum is African American, so the Democrats' own precedent standard may not apply.

Brain aneurysms

Biden is reported to have suffered two brain aneurysms, the first a near death experience in 1988.

Joe Biden is turning 77 in November 2019. He will be nearly 78 years old on Election Day 2020. Biden hasn't disclosed his medical history since 2008, when physicians found he had an irregular heartbeat.[124] Biden has long been plagued by health issues.[124][125] and appears to be medicated. See also: Biden's age and Joe Biden's eye filling with blood during a town hall.

Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight wrote about Biden's age:

A lot of rank-and-file voters do have concerns about Biden’s age. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll in February found that 62 percent of voters had reservations about voting for someone aged 75 or older. Other polls have also shown advanced age to be a concern among Democrats, Republicans and independents alike.[126]

Biden says he met with survivors of the Stoneman Douglas Parkland shooing while he was vice president; the Stoneman Douglas shooting occurred more than one year after Biden left office.[127] Whatever the concerns, Biden would likely be a one-term president.

Trump-Russia conspiracy

Biden and Flood with their wives.[128]
See also: Hillary Clinton email scandal and Trump-Russia collusion hoax

Warren Flood was Vice President Biden's information technology (IT) director at the White House.

According to the metadata, on June 15, 2016, three days after Julian Assange announced WikiLeaks was about to publish “emails related to Hillary Clinton,” the first Guccifer 2.0 document was created by Warren Flood on the East coast at 13:38 EDT, and was modified thirty minutes later by Феликс Эдмундович, or Felix Edmunovich, the Russian patronymic of Felix Edmunovich Dzerzhinsky,[129] founder of the KGB - a blatantly amateurish attempt to create Russian fingerprints.

A document that Warren Flood authored in 2008, and was attached to one of John Podesta's leaked emails, was used by Guccifer 2.0 as a template into which he then copied the contents of the DNC's Trump Opposition Research document. It was copied from this file: https://www.wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/fileid/26562/7365 which is also attached to this leaked email. It is Flood's document that the "CONFIDENTIAL" text in the background derives from.

Guccifer 2.0 was a 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign false flag operation set up to discredit the DNC revelations at Wikileaks. Adam Carter writes,
"one particular group would have been particularly desperate precisely at that time, for the emergence of a narrative about Russian hackers to discredit proper leaks / justify claims that all leaks are 'probably doctored' and they will have very likely known [Warren] Flood too. That group is the Clinton Campaign.
As of June 12th, [2016] they were in a position where Julian Assange had just announced WikiLeaks' upcoming release of Hillary's emails, she was still under FBI investigation, and Trump was attacking Hillary for her use of a private server with his supporters frequently chanting "lock her up!" at rallies.
The campaign was in a desperate position and really needed something similar to a Russian hacker narrative and one where they would be fortunate to have a seemingly clumsy hacker that leaves lots of 'fingerprints' tainting files and bringing the reputation of leaks into question... Sure enough, 2-3 days later, Guccifer2.0 - the world's weirdest hacker - was spawned and started telling lies in an effort to attribute himself to the malware discoveries, etc."[130]
National Security Advisor Susan Rice sent an email to herself about a secret Oval Office meeting where the Clinton-Steele dossier was discussed.[131][132][133] The email was written and sent to herself 15 minutes after Donald Trump was sworn in on January 20, 2017:[134]
"On January 5, following a briefing by IC leadership on Russian hacking during the 2016 Presidential election, President Obama had a brief follow-on conversation with FBI Director Jim Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates in the Oval Office. Vice President Biden[135] and I were also present.

President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities "by the book". The President stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.
From a national security perspective, however, President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia.

[Redacted section]

The President asked Comey to inform him if anything changes in the next few weeks that should affect how we share classified information with the incoming team. Comey said he would."[136]

The following day DNI James Clapper released a public version of the Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian election interference, a joint John Brennan, Clapper and Comey document consisting of recycled reports on RT with two pages of sexual innuendo from the Clinton opposition research Steele dossier.[137] NSA Dir. Adm. Mike Rogers dissented from the conclusions and did not attend the days' prior Oval Office meeting.[138][139]

The Washington Post was assured by Comey, Brennan and Clapper that "the sources involved in the [Clinton-Steele dossier's] reporting were credible enough to warrant inclusion in the highly classified [presidential] report.”[140] Brennan however, in public Congressional testimony months later, said the dossier and its sources were not credible enough to incorporate in the joint Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian election interference. Brennan swore the Clinton-Steele dossier did not “in any way” factor into the CIA's assessment that Russia interfered in the election to help Trump.

Clapper leaked the substance of the Clinton-Steele dossier to Jake Tapper of CNN before Comey briefed President-elect Trump, providing the "news hook" in Comey's words, that CNN was looking for to publicize the dossier's unverified contents after Trump was briefed. This was the beginning of the bogus pee-memo rumor designed to smear President-elect Trump, with Obama, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, Biden, Rice and Sally Yates colluding together. And the purpose was to hoax the FISA court into granting an extension of surveillance beyond Trump's swearing in. It is also a prime example of "circular journalism" and fake news collusion between mainstream media and Democrat operatives.[141]

Biden claims that if he had been president rather than Barack Obama in 2015 and 2016, the Russians would not have interfered in the 2016 election.[142]

Anti-2nd Amendment

Biden responds to a voter asking about Biden's vow to confiscate guns: "You're full of sh**."

Immediately after Deep State coup 2.0 was announced to thwart the will of voters and subvert American democracy, Biden rolled out his gun seizure plan.[143] In accepting Beto O'Rourke's support as part of the Texas deal that excluded Sanders, Biden vowed to put Beto in charge of the gun seizure program.[144]

Primaries

With the Impeachment sham over, Biden's usefulness was over, too. Biden's poor finish in the Iowa caucus demonstrated to many that he never was a viable candidate, and that support for his campaign was not very deep.

The Democrats rigged Iowa caucus fiasco to Stop Bernie landed Biden in fourth place. Many days after the charade, Biden press spokesperson Symone Sanders, speaking on behalf of the campaign, refused to officially acknowledge if the DNC's posted results were legitimate.[145] Biden himself became increasingly testy over questions concerning his durability as a candidate. At a campaign event in Hampton, New Hampshire on February 9, when asked by a female college student if he could turn his campaign around after Iowa, Biden snapped and called her "a lying dog-faced pony soldier."[146] This came days after Biden belittled another woman asking about his policy on coal. Such incidents only increased doubts about Biden's mental fitness to be President.

Iowa caucuses

Biden ran forth, as expected.

New Hampshire primary

Biden ran fifth in a field of ten, slightly worse than expected.

Nevada caucuses

Biden ran second with 17% to Sanders, who failed to achieve a majority; the other 49% was spread among 5 remaining candidates.

Super Tuesday - March 3, 2020

See also: Bernie Derangement Syndrome and Joe Biden's mental decline

Biden's campaign donations dried up as corruption allegations were revealed in the Ukrainegate scandal during the Democrats' impeachment sham, and he didn't spend anytime or money in any Super Tuesday state. In reaction to Bernie's sweep of early primaries, the DNC establishment's Stop Bernie movement went into full swing.[147] 1344 delegates were up for grabs on Super Tuesday with an unknown number to win as Superdelegates had yet to decide if intervention was necessary to Stop Bernie and thwart the will of the people.[148] Former DNC chair Donna Brazile scolded RNC chair Ronna McDaniel to "stay the hell out" for publicly commenting on DNC internal delegate vote rigging processes and speaking "Russian talking points". Steyer was out on Friday, Buttigieg cut a deal on Sunday, and both Klobuchar and Beto backed Biden on Monday. In accepting Buttigieg's endorsement, Biden who at the time was under investigation in the Ukrainegate scandal,[149] told a throng of adoring Democrats that Buttigieg reminded him of his son.[150] Biden's son, Hunter Biden, was accused of money laundering millions of dollars from the Ukrainian firm Burisma for the Biden family and asked an Arkansas court to delay disclosing how much money he made from Burisma and Chinese sources in a paternity suit until after Super Tuesday.[151] The court denied the request.[152]

On election eve MSNBC reported that former President Obama confirmed 'the signal has been sent in the past 36 hours' to engage the Stop Bernie movement.[153] Biden encouraged voters to get out for 'Super Thursday.'[154]

With the 100% of the popular vote counted at 12:00 PM EST Wednesday, Democrats had not yet published final allocation of 444 delegates from California and Texas.[155] Partial results posted by the DNC indicated Biden had 453 delegates, Sanders 382, Warren 50, and Gabbard 1. Bloomberg quit, accounting for 46 Zombie delegates, Buttigieg 26, and Klobuchar 7. With the insiders work done, the likelihood of moving the goalposts to allow Superdelegates to vote in the first round was reduced. Meanwhile, Biden and the liberal media took a victory lap.

Far left animal rights/cow flatulence activists Sarah Segal and Ashley Froud disrupted Biden's victory speech,[156][157] Bernie trashed Biden on the Iraq War and his support for NAFTA trade deals which destroyed middle class America and manufacturing jobs. Warren ran 3rd in her home state of Massachusetts. In 10 debate appearances since June 2019, Elizabeth Warren was never asked once by the fake news media complex about her false claims of Native American heritage.[158]

Texas primary

Five days after the voting, Dallas County Elections Administrator discovered her office did not count about 10% of the total ballots that voters cast in Texas' Super Tuesday primary.[159] She discovered 44 thumb drives containing ballots that were not included in the final results. Biden was alleged to have been the winner.

Biden nonetheless was declared the winner, and without Texas Sanders' hopes evaporated. The scandal, of course, garnered no national media coverage.

Michigan and the blue collar working class vote

By the Michigan primary, "the most diverse field in history" came down to two geriatric white males who became millionaires by holding public office. Biden, an advocate for outsourcing U.S. jobs via corrupt trade deals, faced an uphill contest with Sanders who has strong labor union ties with auto workers who have suffered badly under NAFTA. Despite his support for the far Left agenda, such as the Green New Deal and prisoners getting to decide if they want to go to a men or women's prison, Biden and the fake news media tried to pose the contest as between moderates and socialists.

On Sunday, two days before voting, Dallas County Elections Administrator discovered her office did not count about 10% of the total ballots that voters cast in Texas' Super Tuesday primary.[160] She discovered 44 thumb drives containing ballots that were not included in the final results. Biden was alleged to have been the winner. Without Texas, Sanders was virtually eliminated.

Noted Civil rights leader Jesse Jackson endorsed Bernie Sanders.[161] On primary day, Biden campaigned at a Michigan auto plant. An autoworker asked about Biden's promise to take guns away and put Beto O'Rourke in charge of confiscation. The discussion got heated, Biden crouched up close and wagged his finger in the face of a labor union member and traditional Democrat voter. The voter told Biden he didn't appreciated Biden sticking his finger in his face and Biden's bullying tactics. Biden told the voter, "you're full of s---",[162] and threatened, "you wanna take this outside?" Biden's handlers intervened and whisked Biden away.[163]

The contest in Michigan, which Sanders won in 2016, was said to be test of who commands the blue collar and working class vote, Biden or Sanders. Biden was greeted at the auto plant with cheers of “Trump! Trump! Trump!”'[164]

Lawyers for the mother of Hunter Biden’s 18 month old out-of-wedlock child filed a motion seeking to have the vice president’s son held in contempt of court as a deadbeat dad for covering up information about his 2017 and 2018 income from Ukraine, Burisma oil, the Chinese military, and Romanian[165] sources in his ongoing paternity and child support case.[166] More than $1 Billion dollars was paid by the Bank of China on behalf of the Chinese military for drone technology to a partnership owned by Hunter Biden, the family of convicted mafia kingpin Whitey Bulger, and the stepson of Secretary of State John Kerry which apparently was divided three ways.[167] Hunter Biden, who's new wife is pregnant, argued that coronavirus prevented him from co-operating with the court and would continue to do so until after the November 2020 general election. The judge rejected the arguement. As it became more clear Joe Biden would become the nominee, the woman apparently signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) for an undisclosed amount of cash. Ironically just days earlier Joe Biden demanded on national television that Michael Bloomberg release women from NDAs and be forthcoming about how much cash Bloomberg paid to women who had been wronged and abused. Hunter Biden has a long and troubled history with drugs; after being thrown out of the Navy for narcotics, a few months later he was hired by Ukrainians when his father was put in charge of doling out $1 Billion dollars in U.S. taxpayer funds to the Ukrainian government and Ukrainian private businesses concerns. Hunter's first wife filed for divorce over an extra-marital affair with his grieving sister-in-law, the newly minted widow of Vice President Biden's other son, Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden. Hunter's first wife alleged in divorce papers that Hunter spent all his money on dope and prostitutes.[168] Hunter himself related to a national television audience, aired on CBS 60 Minutes, of all night crack binges with the homeless in L.A. while he was paid $83,000 a month by Ukrainians for his last name being Biden and evidently doing nothing.

Once again, long lines appeared at certain select precincts where many frustrated voters gave up and returned home. Sanders accused the Democrat party of voter suppression.[169] As a committed idealist, which anyone who knows the man or followed his career since he entered politics in 1981, these events explain clearly why Sanders never joined the Democratic party - because the Democratic party is not democratic. Democratic party insiders and office holders do not hold to the fundamental belief in one man, one vote. This was true when the Democratic party's forebearers inserted the 3/5 rule into the U.S. Constitution; it was true in the decade-long court battles ending with the Dred Scott decision, and after the Civil War it was the basis for, first lynching white carpetbagging Republicans, then secondly turning on recently freed Blacks and imposing a century-long era of segregation and Jim Crow. Winning, and holding power at all costs are the core principles of Democratic party leadership since its founding, and those core beliefs have repeatedly compromised any notion of freedom, equality, or human rights to attain their objectives. Few contemporary, ordinary Democratic party voters understand these basic facts of the history of the Democratic party as well as Bernie Sanders does. By running from outside the party, Bernie Sanders attempted to reform it. Sanders is the living embodiment of the 38% of Democratic party voters, who identify as socially conscious liberals or progressives, whose valuers and beliefs may be high minded and noble, but are systematically mocked behind their backs as dupes and stooges by party insiders. In Sanders' case, Sanders has simply been honest with himself by not wearing the party label. Very few of his staff, supporters, or followers can make the same claim, or excuse.

In 2011 Biden delivered the keynote address at the Atlantic Council’s distinguished leadership awards. He did so again in 2014 at its “Toward A Europe Whole and Free” conference,[171] which was dedicated to expanding NATO's influence and countering “Russian aggression.” Speakers like Zbigniew Brzezinski, a former U.S. national security adviser, sniped at Barack Obama for an insufficiently bellicose posture toward Russia, while former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright fretted over polls showing low public support for U.S. interventionism overseas. Biden emphasized the need to power Europe with non-Russian sources of natural gas. This provided a prime opportunity to Ukrainian suppliers like Burisma and U.S. energy titans. Many of these energy companies, from Chevron to Noble Energy, also happen to be top donors to the Atlantic Council.

After the Maidan Revolt, Foreign Policy magazine wrote, “No one in the U.S. government has wielded more influence over Ukraine than Vice President Joe Biden."[172] The Atlantic Council described Biden as “the point person on Ukraine in the Obama administration.”[173] “Ukraine was the top, or one of the top three, foreign policy issues we were concentrating on,” said Michael Carpenter, Biden's foreign policy adviser. “[Biden] was front and center.”[174]

Joe Biden and his controversies related to the military

Joe Biden has faced a couple of controversies related the military. Below is some information related to those controversies.

Marijuana

Biden authored legislation increasing mandatory minimum sentences for marijuana possession. Nearly 20 million people have been arrested and incarcerated for marijuana possession since Biden wrote the bill.[175] Mandatory minimums give the judge no discretion in handing out a sentence. Marijuana arrests outnumber arrests for violent crime.[176] President Trump has taken the lead in sentencing and prison reform.[177] Biden wrote the legislation which established the Office of National Drug Control Policy, also known as the "drug czar."

When a big money donor who favors decriminalization held a fundraiser for Biden in May 2019, Biden "evolved" his 30-plus year stance on marijuana mandatory minimum sentencing which has caused so much hardship and suffering to families, particularly minorities who have been Biden's targets.[178] Biden suddenly showed no concern about exposing children to a gateway drug.

Plagiarism, again

In giving lip service to climate change, Biden has been accused of plagiarizing content from climate activist websites for his own fundraising site. Biden's alleged climate policy appears to be cut and pasted from non-profit websites to solicit donations for his campaign.

Josh Nelson noted, "The paragraph in Joe Biden's climate plan about carbon capture and sequestration includes language that is remarkably similar to items published previously by the Blue Green Alliance and the Carbon Capture Coalition...Biden's goal is to make CCUS a widely available, cost-effective, and rapidly scalable solution to reduce carbon emissions to meet mid-century climate goals," reads the Biden website. The website for the Carbon Capture Coalition states, "[our] goal is to make carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS) a widely available, cost-effective, and rapidly scalable solution to reduce carbon emissions to meet mid-century climate goals."

Biden's website also claims that, "carbon capture, use, and storage (CCUS) is a rapidly growing technology that has the potential to create economic benefits for multiple industries while significantly reducing carbon dioxide emissions." The language mirrors the language of a 2017 letter to the Senate from the Blue Green Alliance: "Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) is a rapidly growing technology that has potential to create economic benefits for multiple industries while significantly reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions."[179][180]

CNN's John King didn't buy the staff flub excuse. "This is a leadership issue," King said.[181]

Fundraising

Biden accepted the maximum contribution allowed from former HBO chief executive officer Chris Albrecht. Albrecht resigned as chief executive officer at HBO ain 2007 after being arrested and charged with assaulting his girlfriend. In 1991 Time Warner Inc. paid a $400,000 settlement to a female worker allegedly assaulted by Albrecht while on the job. The victim reported directly to Albrecht at the time as senior vice president at HBO Independent Productions.
