So, let us assume (at the time of this writing) that Ole Joe will win the Presidency. If so, let me pull out the “haters of all things Trump” Playbook and do to Biden what was done to Trump.
1. Joe Biden lied about how he met his current wife, Jill. According to an actual witness (Jill’s ex husband), Bill Stevenson, Ole Joey was putting the moves on Jill while she was married to Bill back in 1972. Joey claims that they met in 1975. That “story” has been thoroughly debunked since Jill campaigned for Joey in 1972! Of course, the Media, Joey and Jill “deny” the ex husband’s claim. So much for “moral character”.
2. The assault on Tara Reid, which, again, the Media (formerly, the “Me Too” gang) totally dismissed – even though over nine “on the record” confirmations and witnesses are in lock step with Reid’s claim. Oh well. Who cares, right?
3. Hunter “crackhead” Biden and the “laptop from hell”. Hopefully, Joey’s son will be seen nowhere near the White House (kind of like Jimmy Carter’s brother, Billy). This guy is currently under investigation by the Senate and the FBI. Also, credible witnesses with actual proof and verification have linked Joey to the scams of untold millions of dollars. Think the Media will pick this story up? No. Think the voters of Biden will care? No. They will dismiss it. Biden is dang-near perfect, a man of character, integrity and family values, right?
4. The current tweets of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Evan McMullen are asking for a “list” of people who “supported” Trump. What are they planning on doing with voters who voted for Trump? A list? Really? Wow, Joey, are you going to “unite” us under one Banner of Government compulsion?
5. The slogan of a Biden “mandate” is ridiculous in light of the numbers. As of this writing, Trump got 70,787,512 popular votes. Biden got 74,926,044 popular votes. Now, as Biden claims, he does not ‘see’ Red and Blue states, or Republicans or Democrats. He wants to “heal my soul” (it doesn’t need healed, Joey, but thanks anyway). How does a Government go about “healing” 70 million people who didn’t vote for him? That’s nearly half the voters. Hardly a “mandate” from the American People. The country is split. In fact, Trump had 62,979,636 votes in 2016. Do the math. He picked up votes in 2020. More amazing to the “Trump is akin to Mussolini” drivel, Trump picked up male Black votes and Latinos.
This has shocked many at CNN. Well, who cares, right, since on MSNBC Joy Reid referred to Justice Clarence Thomas as “Uncle Clarence” – a derogatory term used spun off from “Uncle Tom” in the Black community for those who think for themselves and not the Party. In 1994 the never-tired-of-hearing, my brother, Cornel West wrote that the use of Uncle Tom for Black Conservatives is pejorative. Commenting on Glenn Loury’s Essay (Free at Last, written for Commentary, October, 1992), that “Loury’s charges are noteworthy” (Race Matters, Cornel West, Vintage, 1994, p. 74-75). However, at the time West wrote that book, there was barely a trickle of Black Conservatism (stemming from as early as George S. Shuyler’s great book, Black and Conservative – 1966 – get it, buy it, read it). Of course, there was Thomas Sowell and Shelby Steele. Today, those numbers have changed and grown significantly. Joy Reid is out of step. However, West wrote, “The few valuable insights of the new black conservatives can be incorporated into a broader perspective…” while rejecting their Republican political measures (p. 89, op. cited). Loury wrote, “[I]n the larger white society my racial identity was in no way conditional upon my espousing particular beliefs or values; whatever my political views or cultural interests, I would always be black in white America. Yet among other blacks my standing could be made conditional upon fidelity to the prevailing party line” (Commentary). In other words, for Joy Reid, “if you don’t vote for Biden, you ain’t black”. Joey said that. And it is utter stupidity and nonsense.
6. During the final debate it largely fell on deaf ears that Biden mentioned that we have only 8 years “to the point of no return”. Climate change is “an existential threat to humanity,” he said. We are, says Biden, “told by all the leading scientists of the world” that we have no more time. We have, basically, 8 to 10 years. This is from the possible future President’s lips. What does that mean, then? If “humanity” is at the “point of no return”, then obviously Joey and Kamala must save the entire world. No, this is not a DC Comic book you are reading. This is reality. To continue to have the way of life that involves football on Sundays, Christmas family gatherings and free internet porn, we must “radically alter” our social values and norms.
The idea that we have “8 to 10 years” before plunged into something George Romero or George Miller could dream up, comes from the UN General Assembly, 73rd Session, High Level Meeting on Climate and Sustainable Development, March 28th, 2019 (the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change). “We are running out of time” was uttered at the close of this meeting by Ms. Wickramyanayake. A Mr. Hassan also noted, “we haven’t much time”. The term “existential threat” (repeated now a billion times in the Media) comes from this meeting. Jayatha Wickramyanayake is from Sri Lanka, and Hussain Rasheed Hassan is Minister for Environment of the Maldives. All of this is a move to eradicate American hegemony. Rather than the nations copying and implementing a Constitutional form of Government under a Republic “for and by the People” – America is being asked to radically alter her sovereignty (i.e., reduce market fundamentalism) and “join in” and “fund” Global and Green enterprises to save the planet. What this means is super high taxes, product prices soaring (consumables become more expensive – get used to being without them), and, eventually, getting rid of that car and motorcycle that consumes fossil energies. Think I am joking? Here’s a headline from The Sacramento Bee, “Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday issued an executive order that would phase out sales of new gas-powered passenger cars by 2035, a move that he said would improve air quality and significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions that are warming the planet” (Sacramento Bee, Sept. 23rd, 2020).
Newsom said, “For too many decades, we have allowed cars to pollute the air that our children and families breathe. You deserve to have a car that doesn’t give your kids asthma. Our cars shouldn’t make wildfires worse – and create more days filled with smoky air. Cars shouldn’t melt glaciers or raise sea levels threatening our cherished beaches and coastlines” (op. cit.). Yup. Mad Max ain’t just a movie from Hollywood. It’s Hollywood’s vision projected on reality unless we get rid of right wing Evangelicals – or at least shut them down through ridicule and marginalization. And, by golly, it’s Joey’s and Kamala’s job to do just that. It’s a mandate!
Oh, and by the way, the 97% of all scientists agree myth is just that: a myth. Several top scientists like Professor Judith Curry, chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Meteorology Professor Richard Lindzen at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Patrick Michaels and Paul Knappenberger who are with the Center for the Study of Science at the Cato Institute, Dr. Benny Peiser of the Global Warming Policy Foundation, Climatologist Dr. Roy Warren Spencer, principal research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and formerly worked as a Senior Scientist for Climate Studies at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center – the list goes can go on. Perhaps the idea of infusing what “science” says (rather, read “demands” with an authoritarian hand) with political legislation is not a good idea. “Nazi propaganda never hesitated to clothe its monstrous lies in scientific apparel. The method often worked too, since those towards whom these lies were directed usually had little critical faculty, and accepted as fact everything which bore the regime’s stamp of approval” (Auschwitz: A Doctor’s Eyewitness Account, Miklos Nyiszli, , 2011, MJF Books, p.181).
