If President Trump had made this many gaffes the media would be going totally NUTS!
‘Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign had been as entertaining as his rival and President Donald Trump’s. From forgetting who the current US president is to calling the coronavirus ‘Luhan’ virus, Biden has never failed to amuse and confuse his audience. He has even been dubbed as the ‘Gaffe Machine’ thanks to his husband-wife blunders, malapropisms, mixing up Covid-19 figures and forgetting who’s who.
President-elect Joe Biden on Tuesday, December 22, said the federal tax probe targeting his son Hunter Biden’s murky financial dealings is “Russian misinformation”. And Biden went on to call the FOX reporter who asked for comment on the probe a “one-horse pony” in another blunder. Biden apparently meant to say “one-trick pony”, which refers to somebody with only one talent or area of expertise.
Kamala Harris’ wife
On October 27, Biden mistakenly called Kamala Harris’ husband Doug Emhoff “Kamala’s wife” while responding to a question regarding the effort his campaign had been making during the final week before the upcoming November elections. “You know, uh, we have 17 battleground states across the country and we’re not losing focus on securing, uh, uh, the many pathways to 270. But my wife Jill, as you know, and Doug Emhoff, uh, Kamala’s wife, are there,” he added.
Joe Biden’s husband
On July 3, Jill Biden, Joe Biden’s wife, trended online for something her husband said in one of his videos. Many, including Donald Trump Jr, had called him out for addressing himself as “Joe Biden’s husband Joe Biden”.
‘Love of my life’
In an interview in May, the former vice president became the butt of jokes after he tried to express his love for his sister with an unusual phrase. To the question “Does Joe Biden have a brother?” he replied, “Lucky, I have two younger brothers, I am the oldest of three and I have a sister who is ‘the love of my life’.” While his answer seemed innocent enough, netizens could not help but pull his leg over his choice of phrase to describe his love for his sister.
Wife or sister
On March 3, Biden confused his wife for his sister during a speech, where he said, “This is my little sister, Valerie,” while grabbing his wife’s hand. However, after realizing the faux pas, he said, “Oh, no, this is her,” pointing to his sister, to whom he then said, “You’ve switched on me.”
4 more years of George
On October 26, during the virtual “I Will Vote” concert, Biden seemed to have forgotten that Donald Trump is the incumbent US president and went on to say ‘four more years of George’, raising speculations whether he meant George W Bush or his father George HW Bush. “Four more years of George uh…George, going to find ourselves in a position if Trump gets elected, we are going to be in a different world,” he said. Later, the Biden camp clarified that he was referring to comedian George Lopez, who hosted the event.
On October 12, Biden appeared to forget the name of Mitt Romney while speaking at an event in Ohio. “I got in trouble when we were running against that senator who was a Mormon, the governor,” Biden said, referring to Romney who also ran against Barack Obama in the 2012 election and lost.
Iraq and Iran
In January, Biden mistook Iran for Iraq while condemning Trump’s move to assassinate Iran’s top military leader Qassem Soleimani in an air attack outside the airport in Baghdad earlier this year. While referring to Iraq’s parliamentary move to push American coalitions out of the country, Biden said: “The Iran Parliament.” “The Iran parliament voted to reject all Americans coalition forces in the country, and however you may feel about American military presence in the Middle East, there’s a right way and a wrong way to draw down our troops,” he added.
Theresa May and Margaret Thatcher
In April, Biden had an apparent “Freudian slip” at a fundraiser in Columbia, South Carolina, when he flubbed the name of former UK Prime Minister Theresa May and called her Margaret Thatcher instead. “Margaret Thatcher, um, excuse me, Margaret Thatcher — Freudian slip,” Biden said, according to a campaign pool report. “But I knew her too.” He then corrected himself by saying: “The Prime Minister of Great Britain Theresa May.”
Proud Boys and Poor Boys
In October, during the second presidential debate, Biden suffered an embarrassing slip-up, when he fudged the name of far-right group Proud Boys, and called them “Poor Boys” instead.
Running for Senate
In February, Biden told South Carolina voters he’s a “candidate for the US Senate”. In the same speech, he even went on to say, “Look me over, if you like what you see help out, if not, vote for the other Biden.” In October, while addressing United Auto Workers, which represents a local GM powertrain unit, in Toledo, Ohio, the former veep said: “You know, we have to come together. That’s why I’m running. I’m running as a proud Democrat for the Senate, when I ran as a proud Democrat for vice president, and I’m running as a proud Democrat for president.”
In March, Biden had made the “Luhan” blunder during a live interview with MSNBC. “I suggested we should have people in China at the outset of this event when it all started — in Luhan province,” he had said.
In April, Biden referred to the killer disease as “Covid-9” instead of “Covid-19” during a virtual town hall with frontline workers. “There is more than one coronavirus. This Covid-9 is one strain of that,” he said.
The Presidential candidate got Covid-19 death toll wrong at least three times so far. In May, Biden said 600,000 Americans died of Covid-19 when the actual death toll was over 60,000. In June, he claimed that 120 million people died of coronavirus while the real figure then was around 122,000. In September, he said 200 million Americans died while actual toll is below 200,000. The total population of the US is just over 330 million.’https://meaww.com/joe-biden-gaffes-2020-top-bidenesque-blunders-election-year-kamala-harris-wife-luhan-virus-trump
Didn’t President Trump warn us way before the election of mail-in ballot fraud!? Now ‘As we are about to enter the 2nd week of Election 2020, we continue to hear reports of possible irregularities with the vote-counting process coming from numerous swing states, which from initial appearances seems to have given the presidential nod to someone who barely left his basement during the run-up to the election.
After President Trump, who had what appeared to be an insurmountable lead Tuesday night, somehow saw his lead evaporate as absentee and mail-in ballots began being added to the count, which obviously led to questions about the process.
Nowhere are those questions more pronounced than the vote count in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which turned the results in that state from a Trump majority to a Biden majority.
The Western Journal reported that according to Mike Roman, the director of Election Day operations for the Trump campaign, he showed a video that was posted on Twitter, it shows a woman who purported to be a volunteer handling absentee ballots by herself, unsupervised in a basement lunchroom.
In Philly suburbs “volunteers” are handling absentee ballots in the basement lunchroom of the counting center. The “election supervisor” LEFT! They don’t know his name? Are you kidding me? pic.twitter.com/kEeesnbze5

Mark Latham is an Australian politician with the New South Wales One Nation Party. He is an atheist but makes more sense in political matters than our professing ‘Christian’ Prime Minister. Anyway, I follow Mark on Facebook and Twitter. This is what he had to say of this Presidential election. ‘Funniest thing is ‘progressives’ calling for calm and unity in USA, after 4 years of mad attacks on Trump, denying his legitimacy in winning Presidency 2016. Old demented, bumbling Joe, the beneficiary of electoral fraud, is illegitimate from his first moments 2020.’http://Real Mark Latham @RealMarkLatham
How can you tell when a politician is lying? Answer: When he open his mouth. That’s why you should vote Trump; because he isn’t a politician. However, Biden ‘Apparently awakening to the absurdity of his initial plan to forego campaigning in the days remaining before the election, Joe Biden summoned up the energy to make his way to Warm Springs, Georgia today, the home of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Little White House. In keeping with his gloomy portrait of a country ravaged by pandemic and hopelessly afflicted with institutional racism, in the course of his speech Biden inspiringly noted: “It was here on April 12, 1945 that President Roosevelt died.” That made it a perfect setting for a speech by an elderly, low-energy candidate that many assume will not live long into his presidential term if elected.
Biden tried to mix his doomsaying about the virus that is going to get all of us whose lives haven’t already been destroyed by The White Man with some positive notes: “It is hard when you drive in here,” he observed, “not to think of the circumstances President Roosevelt faithed [sic] and how he overcame so much for so many.” Biden played up the hopeful aspects of Roosevelt’s history in Warm Springs, asserting that it was “a good place to talk about hope and healing,” since it was to that “Franklin Roosevelt came to use the therapeutic waters to rebuild himself” after he contracted polio.
Yes, that’s all true. In an uncomfortable parallel with the Biden campaign, not only did FDR die in Warm Springs; he did so after deceiving the American people for many months about the seriousness of his condition. Despite Joe’s numerous verbal slip-ups and increasingly obvious signs of dementia, the Biden campaign continues to insist that their man is just fine, and in fact more vigorous and in the pink of health than the president who is traversing the country holding three rallies a day.
Yet Nancy Pelosi’s recent introduction of legislation that would make it easier for Congressional Democrats to implement the 25th Amendment (which discusses the removal of a president who is incapacitated and unable to perform his duties) was not, she said, directed at President Trump, but rather at his successors. It was easy to see who she had in mind: Speculation is rife that if Biden wins, he will quickly step aside or be pushed aside to make way for Kamala Harris, who is more palatable than old Joe to the party’s increasingly strong far-Left wing.
In that scenario, Hale and Hearty Joe is being sold to the American people in a classic bait-and-switch operation, reminiscent of the snow job the Democrats pulled off on the electorate back when FDR was running for his fourth term in 1944. Photographs of Roosevelt made it obvious that he was gravely ill: he had lost a considerable amount of weight and looked sallow and haggard. Yet as Republicans began to charge that Roosevelt was too ill to serve yet another four years as President, FDR’s physician, Admiral Ross McIntire, stepped up with an outright lie: “The President’s health is perfectly OK.”’https://www.jihadwatch.org/2020/10/biden-tries-to-project-energy-by-going-to-where-fdr-went-to-die?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=the_2020_10_30_jihad_watch_daily_digest&utm_term=2020-10-30
Just in case you need some good advice on the upcoming Presidential election.
Do you understand the Electoral College? Well, the Left want to do away with it but is that wise? ‘Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), says she’s “open to” the idea of eliminating the Electoral College. But what would that mean for how America elects her presidents?
Whenever election season rolls around, so does widespread confusion about what actually happens on Election Day every four years. So we spoke with an expert, author and attorney Tara Ross, about the Electoral College system.
Much of the problem, Ross explained, falls back to poor education.
“Nobody has taught us about this,” she said. “I was in my last semester of law school, so I’m in graduate school, and I realize, ‘Nobody’s ever really taught this to me.’ I thought I understood it, but I really didn’t.”
The way many teachers explain the Electoral College “is not flattering,” Ross said, arguing many never take the time to teach students “why it was created, why the founders considered it important, and what benefits it still provides today.”
Ross said it’s a “complete misperception” to think Election Day in America is one enormous election from coast-to-coast. In reality, it’s 51 smaller elections: one in every state and one in Washington, D.C.
“Each of these elections is purely democratic — one person, one vote,” she said. “Everything you hear people say they want in an election, that’s what’s happening. But it happens at the state level, not at the national level.”
The “Why We Need the Electoral College” author, who lives in Texas, used her own state to explain how the system works.
On Nov. 3, Americans aren’t really voting directly for President Donald Trump or Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden; they are voting for a slate of electors — Democratic or Republican — who will later cast their votes for the incumbent president or the former vice president.
Because Texas has 36 congresspeople and two senators, it has 38 electors. That same metric applies to every state.
“Our election on Election Day is not an election for president,” Ross said. “It’s an election for who is going to fill those 38 seats. It’s a statewide office that we are holding a statewide election for, presidential electors.”
Most states, she noted, allocate those spots in a “winner-take-all” fashion.
“So if the Republican candidate wins [Texas], 38 Republicans are elected to fill the statewide office of presidential elector,” Ross explained. “If the Democrat wins, then, of course, 38 Democrats are elected to fill the role of presidential elector for Texas.”
Those electors will then vote Dec. 14 for their respective states’ winning candidate, Trump or Biden. There are a total of 538 electors in the Electoral College, requiring candidates to secure 270 votes to win the presidency.
“So that’s how it works,” Ross said.
The Electoral College system protects voters in two ways.
Referring back to 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who won the country’s popular vote but fell short in the Electoral College, Ross pointed out that the former diplomat’s biggest error was focusing too much on large, urban areas while dismissing more suburban and rural parts of the country. In fact, according to Ross, Clinton’s greatest mistake came in the final weeks of the campaign, when her team was confident she’d win in the Electoral College but were concerned the popular vote could go to then-candidate Trump. To make up that perceived imbalance, Clinton spent a great deal of time in safe, urban areas in an effort to drive up the popular vote to match what she saw as a certain victory in the Electoral College. As we all now know, Clinton ended up beating Trump in the popular vote but losing with the Electoral College, where it really matters.
The Electoral College entices presidential candidates “to appeal to as many people as possible,” rather than spending the majority of their time doling out red meat to their respective bases in politically safe areas, Ross said.
“We’re supposed to do better than that,” she continued. “We’re supposed to focus on the things that bring us together as Americans, to get as many people under the umbrella as we possibly can. And historically speaking, the Electoral College rewards the candidate that does the very best job of that.”
Another way the Electoral College protects voters is by making election fraud and tampering more difficult.
Since Election Day isn’t actually one massive election but 51 local elections, it slows the process down and breaks it up into a lot of different and disconnected pieces.
“In the system that we have, you need several things to go your way before you can steal the election,” Ross said. “One is you need the national electoral vote total to be close, which doesn’t usually happen, actually. Two, you need a handful of states with the right number of electors to also be close, so that flipping those states would be enough. And three, you need to be able to predict in advance which states those are so that you can get it done before the election.”
Accomplishing all those things at once is not impossible, Ross noted, but it’s “very hard” to orchestrate it to give any given candidate the nationwide outcome he or she wants.
While stealing some votes in deeply blue or red precincts might not be as difficult, it’s ultimately unlikely to change the national outcome. The areas to look out for, Ross said, are places where the political makeup is more ambiguous.
Because the Electoral College system slows down the process of electing a president, Ross said, it allows time to “isolate” any problem areas.
“You don’t have to recount the entire country,” she said. “You can focus your attention on the subset of problems, figure it out, and move on to a certain outcome. That is way better than trying to recount the whole country.”
“There’s no perfect system,” Ross added. “But it makes it as difficult as possible to steal an election.”’https://www.faithwire.com/2020/10/23/what-actually-happens-on-election-day-electoral-college-expert-breaks-it-down/?utm_source=FWNL
‘”No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and virtue is preserved. On the contrary, when people are universally ignorant, and debauched in their manners, they will sink under their own weight without the aid of foreign invaders.” —Samuel Adams (1775)’
‘If not for Iowa’s distinction as holder of the nation’s first primary on 3 February, the latest Demo debate in Des Moines wouldn’t matter much. Iowa’s 3.1 million residents put it 30th in population, and the Hawkeye State suffers from the undue influence of leftists from nearby Chicago, who treat the eastern part of the state like a dude-ranch suburb.
The Iowa primary is actually composed of secret closed caucuses promising a prize of 49 delegates, of which 41 are pledged, so all eyes are on Iowa until its caucuses conclude.
Last night was the seventh dull debate, but the first of the election year. It was hosted by the Democrat Party’s public-relations firm, CNN. Participants included frontrunners Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Pete Buttigieg, along with outliers Amy Klobuchar and billionaire leftist Tom Steyer.
That’s a large field of candidates given how close we are to voting in Iowa and New Hampshire, and it reflects both the lack of unity and strength within the Democrat Party. It’s now a uniformly white field of candidates after New Jersey Sen. Cory “Spartacus” Booker dropped out — except, of course, for “Honest Injun” Warren, who has been certified 1/1024th Cherokee or some other indigenous flavor.
Noticeably absent from the “oh so important” Iowa Demo debate was Michael Bloomberg, the mega-billionaire former nanny-state New York City mayor whose political platform is laughably focused on his abjectly hypocritical concern for “income inequality” and his dangerous gun-confiscation agenda.
In order to qualify for the debate, candidates had to first demonstrate broad-based funding support from 225,000 unique donors (at least 1,000 of whom had to be from each of 20 states). Second, they had to meet popular political polling thresholds.
Bloomberg made the polling thresholds (5th place at 5.8%), but he’s intentionally not soliciting individual donations. However, his ad buys now total more than $200 million, almost as much as the rest of the Democrat field’s combined $222 million — effectively doubling their collective strategy to defeat Donald Trump.
Fact is, Bloomberg had no intention of being on the debate stage with his fellow leftists, because that is not his objective.
The stage podium Bloomberg wants is the big one at the Demo convention in July, where he is betting that it will be tough for any of the candidates to win a majority of the party’s delegates. That will enable him to broker a path not for his own nomination but more likely for his preferred candidate. That brokering will take place behind the scenes.
And given Bloomberg’s $52 billion net worth, he will have an outsized influence on which candidate ultimately wins the nomination. After the convention he has vowed to spend hundreds of millions more on advertising to defeat Trump.
Sidebar: This is yet another example of why I believe a candidate should not be able to make limitless donations to their own campaign or on behalf of others (buy the office). They should be subject to the same limits imposed on every other American — $2,800 in a primary and general election.
Who, then, will win Bloomberg’s convention favor and affection?
Biden’s views align most closely to those of Bloomberg, and he is the “establishment candidate.” Thus, he is biding his time as the mainstream Demo favorite, pacing his campaign accordingly and benefiting from a mainstream media that seems shockingly disinterested in the fact that Biden is virtually non compos mentis.
On the other hand, Bernie Sanders is surging in the polls, and the 78-year-old Vermont socialist is leading in Iowa and California, while tied for the top post in Nevada and New Hampshire. Notably, he’s also surging in fundraising, having raised more than $34 million last quarter, compared to Buttigieg’s $25 million, Biden’s $23 million, and Warren’s $21 million. As I warned a year ago, “Take Sanders’s 2020 Campaign Seriously and Literally.”
Democrat Party poobahs are certainly taking him seriously, and they’re concerned about a repeat of 2016, when Hillary Clinton and the DNC conspired to sandbag Sanders in order to secure the nomination for her. The end result of their malfeasance was, of course, a shocking Electoral College victory for Donald Trump and the sudden onset of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
The “Sanders Surge” is thus creating a lot of heartburn for the Demos, who know that his nomination could be “an epic nightmare for them.”
I believe Bloomberg is positioning himself as an insurance policy against Sanders’s nomination.
Warren is doing her best to move Sanders out of the way, and their dustup will benefit Biden.
Moreover, in the RealClearPolitics polling average (the poll to watch), Biden has a substantial national lead over Sanders (27% to 19%) and has marginal leads over Sanders in both Iowa and New Hampshire.
I profiled the threat he and his club of wealthy leftists pose to Liberty in a column two years ago: “The Archenemies of Liberty — Soros, Steyer, Bezos, and Bloomberg,” noting that this megalomaniac has “an insatiable narcissistic quest for power, including centralized government power.” Typical of rich leftists, he does not want to play by the rules, just dictate the rules for others.
Whomever Bloomberg and his sidekick Tom Steyer back at the convention, that nominee will be beholden to them and most certainly will comply with their wishes. We call this arrangement a “quid pro quo.”
And on that note, the Demos’ “urgent” articles of impeachment, which were held hostage by Nancy Pelosi for more than a month, are on the way over to the Senate this week.
Some are suggesting that Pelosi’s delay was intended to help Biden’s candidacy, because now Sanders and Warren will be distracted by their obligatory attendance at the Senate impeachment trial just ahead of the early primaries. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said: “This is the dirty little secret that nobody is talking about, why the speaker held these papers. … This benefits Joe Biden. This harms Sanders, who … will be stuck in a [Senate] chair” instead of out campaigning.
Shades of the 2016 Sanders sandbagging…
In response, Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff declared, “Impeachment has nothing to do with politics or the presidential race.” Seriously, that is the best reply he could script. (Big Lie playbook rules: When trying to deflect from the truth, always leave the denial to a cutout at least two steps removed from the originator of the lie!)
Moving forward, Bloomberg will also be noticeably absent from the unending flood of upcoming Demo debates: 7 February in New Hampshire, 19 February in Nevada, and 25 February in South Carolina. Again, he’d rather buy ads than engage in debates.
Finally, while I’m neither a gambler nor a prognosticating political pretender, if I was, I would suggest you keep your eye on this potential combo ticket: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. I know, crazy, right? I think Biden will be Bloomberg’s water boy, and he’ll have to go younger and non-white in order to abide by his party’s obsessions with race and identity. Booker would be another option, but I suspect Biden’s advisers will insist he go female, and Harris is that default.
Of course, in the unlikely event that Bernie survives the slings and arrows of the DNC, he could choose metrosexual Beto O’Rourke, who can pass as both female and Mexican.’ https://patriotpost.us/alexander/67925-bloombergs-brokered-demo-convention-gambit-2020-01-15
One would think the Democrat Party would limit this man to when and where he could speak. Joe’s hairy leg story begins about 6.51 which makes one wonder how this man is still allowed to run for public office! He (in my own opinion) should be in a nursing home under 24 hour watch and no children allowed close to him at any time!
