What a shit show re: the Larry King tape. The Blue Waver Biden Dems on Twitter are all "This is a hoax by the Trump MAGA cult, any liberals pushing this are working for Trump"...tho some are "so what, Trump is way worse, noones perfect even if its true"...some of the Bernie left are "see we told you Biden needed to be vetted", others are having a "well, what now?" existential crisis while the pro Trump social media folks are going full court press on this.

None of them realize that the real hardcore shit that will sink Biden is being sat on. Sooner or later people will need to realize that the ENTIRE political system, beyond the controlled and corrupt two party system in America is a scam. As the entertainment industry keeping people sane, the food supply, economy, and society in general begins to collapse in America hopefully people will get out of the political bullshit and realize we're all fucking screwed. Nanci Pelosi, Donald Trump, Biden, Fox News, MSNBCNN, and yeah Im sorry "Bernie Sanders" are not our saviors. Re-watching Chisholm 72 on dvd, the idea that there was someone to the left of even Mcgovern in 1972's election(and it was a black woman) running for president is inspirational. It's tempting to think even a corporate puppet predator warmonger like Biden could dare have a progressive black woman as a VP pick, but like Clinton picking Tim Kaine in an act of utter hubris self sabotage in 2016, I wouldn't have too much of a hope. Sorry but most the "blue wave/vote blue no matter who" Democrats are as blind as the flag waving game show chlorox death cultists. If Biden "wins", the Trump world will call on Trump supporters to be armed and take to the streets the night of Nov 3rd. If Trump "wins" Nov 3rd, the MSNBCNN dem/lib side will be calling on everyone to take to the streets in violence. And thats even if there is an election. 7 months out, who the fuck knows what can happen

DIFFICULT THREAD -- #BIDEN SHOULD WITHDRAW

1. I respect the will of the voters.

2. But new information has emerged supporting #TaraReade's account of being sexually assaulted by #JoeBiden.

3. Credible rape accusations are disqualifying or we have NO moral standards.

4. Defeating Trump is NOT OPTIONAL.

5. To avoid potential catastrophe in Nov., #Biden should withdraw.

6. #Warren, #Harris, #Klobuchar, #Buttigieg, #Castro, etc. could replace Biden.

7. #Bernie can restart his campaign.

8. We can reboot the primary and give voters a choice.

9. This is the ethical position AND the smarter strategy to beat Trump.

10. We lose ALL moral authority if we embrace "the lesser of two accused rapists."

11. Polls show other Dem candidates can win.

PRINCIPLES MATTER. WE CAN BEAT TRUMP AND PROTECT OUR VALUES.

I've been told Daou truly had a change of heart but of course do not believe it. Still, it's nice to dream.

Was there ever a more complete analogy to "The Emperor's New Clothes"?

The most foundational, the heaviest of the hardcore shit ready for deployment against Biden is obvious enough. Against any accusation, whether real, exaggerated, or factory-made, the man himself is no longer capable of speaking coherently in his own defense. He is not a late-stage Reagan. He's more on the way to a Bouteflika.

I DON'T GIVE A SHIT

If the establishment shuns me.

I turned 55 today. I've spent the past 20 years fighting the far right.

I've seen Dem leaders enable, normalize, and rehabilitate criminals like Bush, Cheney, & Trump.

I've seen kids in cages under both parties.

I've had it.

Joe Biden names committee to select his 2020 running mate
By Mark Moore
April 30, 2020 | 10:27am


https://nypost.com/2020/04/30/biden-nam ... ning-mate/

Joe Biden named a committee on Thursday to begin vetting candidates for vice president – bringing his 2020 campaign one step closer to naming a running mate.

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s longtime friend, former Sen. Chris Dodd, Cynthia Hogan, who served as his counsel in the Obama administration, Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester of Delaware and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti will serve as national campaign co-chairs, his campaign announced in a statement Thursday.

“Selecting a vice presidential candidate is one of the most important decisions in a presidential campaign and no one knows this more than Joe Biden,” campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said in a statement. “These four co-chairs reflect the strength and diversity of our party, and will provide tremendous insight and expertise to what will be a rigorous selection and vetting process.”

Biden has said he intends to pick a woman as his running mate and plans to do so before the Democratic National Convention in August.

Here's who oddsmakers say is Joe Biden's female veep frontrunner

Among those expected to be on the list are former primary presidential rivals Sens. Kamala Harris of California, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.

But a Politico/Morning Consult poll released earlier this month found that a majority of registered voters think Biden should select someone with legislative or executive experience over picking a woman or person of color.

The survey found 66 percent opt for a vice president with executive experience and 67 percent want someone with legislative experience, while 29 percent want him to choose someone based on gender and 22 percent based on race.

With Post wires


The "oddsmakers" story sourcing "Democratic insiders" breaks down the top 4 on the following list as "contenders." Abrams, Warren and Obama are given as "longshots," and others are named by "Biden staffers" rather obviously so as to pander. Clinton is listed as "no chance."

BIDEN VEEP RACE ODDS
Senior Democratic party insiders gave The Post the following odds:

• Amy Klobuchar 5 to 2

• Gretchen Whitmer 4 to 1

• Kamala Harris 9 to 1

• Tammy Duckworth 9 to 1

• Michelle Obama 15 to 1

• Elizabeth Warren 20 to 1

• Stacey Abrams 25 to 1

• Catherine Cortez Masto 25 to 1

• Michelle Lujan Grisham 33 to 1

• Hillary Clinton 100 to 1

• Andrew Cuomo 500 to 1

I'm thinking I might put $100 on that myself. I'd put 1k on if someone would lend me $900 bucks...

Whitmer? Are you kidding me, pundits? Yes, the icon of gun-snatching anti-white illuminati culling is going to really, really help Joe in the states where he needs it. SMDH.

Ditto. She would be only a slightly smarter choice than someone named "Free Abortion Liberal Gungrabber Islam III."

True, they will call her that, but don't forget that was also true of Free Abortion Liberal Socialist Barack Gungrabber Socialist Foreign-Born African Hussein Islam Fucking Harvard Lawyer Chicago Gangster Osama Bin Obama III. Playing contrasts, especially imagined ones, waving the bloody shirt to mobilize one's own side: this is more often a winning strategy than being conciliatory and running with Milquetoast Karen, oh sorry, I mean Amy.

But no, not expecting Whitmer. Just saying.
