Joe Biden’s relevant political timeline

The Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden, has been in politics for most of his adult life – 47 years. Check out some of the most relevant landmarks of his political career below. I’ve also included parts of his personal life in the timeline, as I would imagine some *Hunter Biden* will pop up during some or all of the debates.

I can die a happy man never having been president of the United States of America. But it doesn’t mean I won’t run.

September 23, 1987 – withdraws Presidential run amid accusations of speech plagiarism

May 1988- another surgery for second aneurysm – Jill Biden: “Our doctor told us there was a 50-50 chance Joe wouldn’t survive surgery. He also said that it was even more likely that Joe would have permanent brain damage if he survived. And if any part of his brain would be adversely affected, it would be the area that governed speech.”

Who’s administration is it? Biden vs. Harris 2020

Is anyone else confused about what’s going on with the Democrats? At this point, I almost hope this is all just a big mistake… and now that I type that out, I think it definitely IS a big mistake. The thing is, the Democrats don’t see it! Or do they? Surely someone somewhere is running this circus and once final act happens, we’ll all be like, “Ohhhhhh now it all makes sense!”

The problem is, there’s no way any of this makes sense. Here are a couple of clips that surfaced in the last 24 hours. Each clip is just 5 seconds.

What in the world? Are they now dropping the facade to let everyone know what their plan is, or are these genuine gaffes? We have grown to expect them from Biden, but Harris is new to the Democrat gaffe reel.

I sincerely hope these are incompetent politicians who are in over their heads, as opposed to a grander and much more sinister plan from evil people behind the scenes. There are theories out there that Harris is the “President-in-waiting” and once Biden gets elected, he’ll either step down or get Clinton’d (he dead).

Meanwhile, Biden is still the guy who hasn’t really had to own up to his very divisive behavior I’ve mentioned in previous posts. Check out 3 Joe Biden moments no one is talking about. And also, did Joe Biden die in 1988?

The way the Dems can save this sinking ship (or has it already sank?) is to brand the two together has Joe Mama. Get it? Combination of Joe and Mamala Kamala, after Kamala revealed her kids call her “Mama-la”.

In 2020, vote for Joe Mama.

Bernie Sanders ends his presidential run… again

I just came across the news that Bernie has suspended his campaign. I guess the shushing Joe Biden is the guy now. Who will be his running mate? Possibly her? Or her? I wonder why Bernie picked today to make the announcement. I still think he would’ve had a better shot of beating Trump in 2016 but I could be wrong about that. Afterall, his loyal supporters just don’t vote. They are vocal and often annoying, but when it comes to necessary action, they come up short.

It’ll be interesting to have Joe Biden in debates with Donald Trump. I still can’t believe he’s the nominee even with his supporters (and everyone) witnessing the degradation of his mind right before our eyes. It really makes me question our whole political system for this reason: why would anyone support a person declining in health unless they just want their party to win, no matter who the party rep is?

That’s scary.

Surely Bernie would have been MORE scary, though, because he actually believes the ideas he promotes, and his mind is clear (as far as we know).

What are your thoughts on Bernie dropping out? Do you think anyone else might swoop in and take the Democrat by storm before the convention? Will Biden win the Senate? 😉 Comment below!

Watching political debates, but why?

I’ve made a habit of watching the Democratic debates from back when there were 194 candidates on stage to the more recent with just a handful of hopefuls arguing about climate change, healthcare, and removing Donald Trump from office.

Historically I would be considered a republican but I think of myself more as an conservative independent now. So when I watch the debates, I find it interesting as to what they discuss and what they value most.

With that said, most of the democrats I know (real people, not politicians on TV) actually do have a big heart and care for people. That’s a good thing! I don’t necessarily believe that’s true about democrat politicians, the same way I don’t believe some republican politicians care about “right to life” for the same reasons republicans I know do.

So these debates… why do I watch when I most likely have very little in common with any of them? Well, I like to know what people I don’t agree with are up to. I hesitate to use this quote…

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

…because we shouldn’t be enemies. As Americans, we’re all on the same team. I don’t like that there seems to be a gigantic chasm between two political parties. It doesn’t seem healthy for the country at all. The interesting part is that I really don’t see it in real life, only in the news and media, YouTube, etc.

Now I’ll be totally transparent, I kind of tune in just to not miss something crazy Joe Biden might say. He’s got a knack for saying some weird stuff lately, and I kind of feel bad for him. I don’t think he’ll get the nomination. In fact, I wonder if any of the current candidates will… it might be Hillary!!! Click here for a post about that.

Have you been watching? If so, what are your thoughts about how the debates are going, and who might be rising to the top?

Thanks for stopping by!

12-year climate change timeline is a win/win for Democrats

Leaving science and everything that makes sense out of this, the 12-year deadline for the end of the world is the best thing Democrats could have ever come up with. Why? Well, I haven’t heard anyone say this yet, maybe they have and I’m just unaware, but here’s why the Democrats are putting most of their eggs in this climate change timeframe…

It’ll be the year 2030 when the so-called climate change timetable is at it’s end point. At this point, either the world ends, as suggested by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or it doesn’t. And here’s where it gets good for the Democrats…

Scenario 1 – the world ends

Democrats announce the ultimate “I told you so!”

Scenario 2 – the world doesn’t end

In this case (and what I think the Democrats will do since the world isn’t going to end in 2030, at least not because of global warming), the Democrats will say, “We did it! Thanks to all your hard work and the amazing vision and leadership of the Democrat party, we’ve avoided disaster. Now, you should trust us with your vote, your money, and your future!” They’ll use this heroic act of saving the world to push their party forward and ask for everyone to join in with the party of the future. They’ll say, “Republicans and conservatives would have brought the world to an end, but thank goodness the Democrats did something about it!”

The ironic part is this: even if no one did anything environmentally responsible from today till January 1st, 2030, the world wouldn’t end. The Democrats know this, so no matter how much effort is or isn’t put into “saving the world,” they’re going to take credit because of what’s going on now– the party-wide push to fix global warming. In 2030, they’ll say it was all thanks to them.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you think they have a 12-year plan to set themselves up as the saviors of the earth? Comment below!

As always, thanks for stopping by!
