The self emasculation of Joe Biden

The self emasculation of Joe Biden

The rejection of masculinity in favor of being second rate men is one of the goals, or means, of social Leftism. Joe Biden, who can boast one of the most progressive voting records of any career politician, is unimmune from the calls of the socialist to “pass the torch” and bend the knee to the new world order. The moment happened when Senator Kamala Harris owned Joe Biden on the debate stage.

I watched this moment unfold with utter incredulity, not because I thought Joe Biden would fair well, for my Democrat Presidential Primary Bracket has Biden not finishing top three while Kamala Harris finishes second. Rather, I this moment was amazing because of the subject matter of busing. Joe Biden was right on the issue then, and did not muster the testicular fortitude to stand by his actions or apologize. The former would have been the right call. Kamala Harris is the first person, I have ever heard champion busing, and her story may not even be accurate. The potential falsehood of Kamala Harris’ claim is irrelevant to how Joe Biden should have responded.

Joe Biden should have first validated Kamala Harris’ story. It would be as strategically unwise to call her story a lie as it would be for Kamala Harris to call Joe Biden a racist. Secondly, Joe Biden should have appealed to the majority, specifically on the Democrat persuasion, that found that busing was a costly and ineffective policy for the vast majority of places. But don’t take my word for it. Take it from the bastions of Leftist thought with the best SEO on the subject:

The Atlantic

With busing, Northerners had found a palatable way to oppose desegregation without appealing to the explicitly racist sentiments they preferred to associate with Southerners. “I have probably talked before 500 or 600 groups over the last years about busing,” Los Angeles Assemblyman Floyd Wakefield said in 1970. “Almost every time, someone has gotten up and called me a ‘racist’ or a ‘bigot.’ But now, all of the sudden, I am no longer a ‘bigot.’ Now I am called ‘the leader of the antibusing effort.’” White parents and politicians framed their resistance to school desegregation in terms like “busing” and “neighborhood schools,” and this rhetorical shift allowed them to support white schools and neighborhoods without using explicitly racist language.

In 1969, a federal judge ordered the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school district to use busing to speed integration — a process that did not end until 2001. Now some residents wonder whether the tumultuous process was worth it: Test scores for black students continue to rise — but school segregation has shot up dramatically.

Thirty years ago, court-ordered busing led to violence on the streets of Boston. Now the city is debating another busing plan. This one would end or alter three decades of moving kids around the city to ensure diversity and allow more students to attend schools in their own neighborhoods. A lack of choice has led many white parents to abandon public schools altogether in favor of private education. NPR’s Anthony Brooks reports

Slate

Black America wasn’t fighting for integration, per se. They were fighting for agency, the right to exercise control over their lives and, hopefully, to enjoy the full protection of the government while doing so. In education, that’s not what they got. They got a policy that demanded white schools produce statistical proof of significant progress, and one where whites were in charge of executing the burdens imposed on them by the courts. Black schools were unilaterally closed down, their students divvied up and distributed to whatever white school needed to adjust its numbers in order to avoid being sued, often over the very loud protests of black parents; at angry town hall meetings, integration was denounced as a white supremacist plot to destroy the black community. Some black students, fearing the prospect of a hostile white environment, dropped out of school rather than ride the bus.

Not all black parents believed in integration. Those who did wanted a say in how it played out for their children. Some busing programs were voluntary, but by and large black children had to bus where HEW told them to bus. Mandatory racial-balance requirements insisted on it. With Jim Crow, black America lived under an onerous, top-down system that told them where their children could and could not go to school. Now, with busing, black America lived under … an onerous, top-down system that told them where their children could and could not go to school

On Busing

Proponents of busing at the time were underwhelmed by the results of court ordered busing, which Joe Biden opposed. A 2013 New York Times article noted that busing was most effective when implemented on a county level in order to prevent “white flight” which would once again reinforce Joe Biden’s stated position in the debate in opposition to federal mandates for busing. Almost every source will show that schools are largely segregated in present times, reinforcing the failure of the policy. The debate, especially among the left is who is to blame: white people, Richard Nixon, etc…

On Joe Biden

Joe Biden was not regarded as a candidate capable of independent thought, in my assessment of the field of twenty-four. His flipflop on the Hyde Amendment solidified that. Biden’s inability to defend himself when he was, in hindsight, right on the issue was self-emasculation before our eyes. He coud have upped the ante claiming white people made the federal busing orders untennable, therefore the situation needed to be handled by expanding the reach of municipal education districts. Blaming white people would have been entirely woke, and Joe Biden would have had his praises sang by the Leftist media, particularly those who thought little of busing or Kamala Harris.

Joe Biden could have stood firmly when he was right and killed two white patriarchal birds with by simply validating Harris’ story and then painting her experience as a minority among the failed policy, blaming white people. But when Biden said “my time is up,” he basically conceded what was remaining of his man card. He should step aside and join Eric Swalwell.

Left scrambles to downplay Biden’s words, ‘If the prosecutor’s not fired, you’re not getting the money’

Left scrambles to downplay Bidens words If the prosecutors not fired youre not getting the money

We all know Joe Biden is a gaffe-machine. We also know he was involved in many of the scandals and foul play that were littered throughout President Obama’s time in the White House. Now, we’re learning that Biden used his power as Vice President to pressure the Ukrainian government to fire a prosecutor who was investigating a firm that employed Biden’s own son, Hunter.

This didn’t come from a FOIA request or deep investigations into Biden’s past. It came from the clumsy presidential frontrunner’s own mouth. While speaking before the Council on Foreign Relations, Biden discussed his dealings with Ukraine, including the threats he made if the prosecutor wasn’t fired.

“If the prosecutor’s not fired, you’re not getting the money,” Biden said. “Well, son of a bitch, he got fired.”

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro and Representative Mark Meadows discussed it last night on her show:

It isn’t often that I disagree with assessments from my team, but this article claiming the media is done with Biden is wrong. He’s right that Biden’s campaign may be over, but progressive media will try to prevent it. There may be some far-left media outlets who were displeased with Biden from the beginning and are now using the Ukraine story to sink him further, but mainstream media is generally still in Biden’s corner. This story from the NY Times, an attempt to debunk the Trump administration’s claims that Biden played dirty to protect his son, lays out most of the facts while coming to completely wrong conclusions, as they’re wont to do.

Biden’s Work in Ukraine: What We Know and Don’t Know

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/22/us/politics/biden-ukraine-trump.htmlThe president has often been vague about the specifics of his allegations, but one detail that he and his allies have repeatedly cited is the former vice president’s threatening to withhold $1 billion in United States loan guarantees if Ukraine’s leaders did not dismiss the prosecutor. Mr. Trump’s campaign on Saturday publicized footage of Mr. Biden recounting the threat.

The prosecutor general, Viktor Shokin, was soon voted out by the Ukrainian Parliament.

His dismissal had been sought not just by Mr. Biden, but also by others in the Obama administration, as well other Western governments and international lenders. Mr. Shokin had been repeatedly accused of turning a blind eye to corruption in his office and among the Ukrainian political elite, and criticized for failing to bring corruption cases.

There are two huge, gaping hole in the NY Times’ assessment that he was being pushed out by many in and out of the White House at the time. First, neither the U.S. government nor any other is likely to be concerned about corruption within a sovereign nation’s state prosecutor’s office. It’s just not something we do, and we especially wouldn’t hold a billion dollar loan guarantee back because we didn’t like a prosecutor.

But more importantly, the NY Times readily admits the prosecutor WAS investigating Hunter Biden’s company. His replacement looked into the matter and came to the quick, politically expedient conclusion that there was nothing to see here. That certainly sounds like political pressure being used to subvert an investigation into a company with deep financial ties to the son of a Vice President. It definitely doesn’t sound like the United States government’s sudden desire to end corruption in a prosecutor’s office for the sake of doing the right thing.

No, legacy media is not pushing the Ukraine scandal because they don’t like Joe Biden. They’re pushing the Ukraine scandal because they don’t like President Trump and they believe the American people are too stupid to connect the dots back to Biden. They believe their propaganda machine can offer Biden the cover he needs while pointing their fingers at a phone call, a whistleblower, and an exchange between world leaders that almost certainly did nothing to break any laws.

Democrats and the media are so desperate to push the unpopular impeachment narrative that they’ll take their chances with harming Biden along the way. They think we’re too dumb to see the truth. I, for one, refuse to believe their lies.

Jonah Goldberg: Beto O’Rourke’s supporters have no sense of humor

Jonah Goldberg_ Beto O'Rourke's supporters have no sense of humor

There has been coverage for the last four years by mainstream media about how “deplorable” President Trump’s supporters are. My personal experience with them, even when I was a “Never-Trump” conservative, was that they’re passionate, yes, but overall they’re not abusive.

The same cannot be said about many of the Democratic supporters on social media who seem to be so easily triggered by criticism or jokes, they’re ready to kill anything or anyone that speaks ill of their chosen messiah. Beto O’Rourke’s camp is one of the worst, and I found that Jonah Goldberg seems to have had a similar experience.

It’s one thing to be passionate. It’s another thing altogether to get threatening with others, especially over harmless jokes. Is Beto O’Rourke a “furry”? Probably not. But it’s funny nonetheless. His fans need to stand down before dying on that particular hill.

Eric Early condemns Schiffs latest impeachment talk

LOS ANGELES – September 22 – Eric Early, the leading Republican challenger for California’s Congressional District 28, condemned Adam Schiff’s latest impeachment comments as “baseless” and “pure partisan hackery.”

On CNN’s State of the Union Sunday morning, Schiff, who has spent the past few years unsuccessfully trying to prove collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian agents, hopped on the latest baseless allegations against President Donald Trump as grounds for impeachment.

“Once again, Adam Schiff drove past countless homeless encampments in Los Angeles on this way to the T.V. studio to promote conspiracy theories about our President,” Early said. “His comments are nothing more than an effort to attack the President and rescue Joe Biden’s failing presidential campaign.”

“Voters are getting sick of Schiff’s schtick, which is nothing more than a mix of a man clearly intoxicated by the sound of his own voice and pure partisan hackery,” Early said. “Angelenos deserve better.”

For 25 years, Eric has fought in the courts to help people stay in their homes and help job creators, businesses and innovators succeed and stay in California while building his own successful law firm. Eric was a candidate in 2018 for California Attorney General against Xavier Becerra, receiving almost one million votes as a first-time candidate.

Eric’s parents immigrated legally to the United States in the 1930s. His father enlisted in the Marine Corps at the age of 17, and was shipped to the Korean War, fought in the First Marine Division at the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, and was awarded a Purple Heart. Eric’s parents moved the family to Long Island, and lived in a middle-class neighborhood of Irish, Italian and Jewish families.

Growing up in New York, California was a symbol of the American Dream, a place where people’s imagination, drive, talents and hard work could allow them to live a good life, while enjoying California’s natural beauty and climate. California became Eric’s home in 1986, where he started his own family.

Eric’s career as an attorney did not follow the usual path. He attended New York University’s undergraduate film school, and then held various positions, including producing commercials for Hasbro Toys, directing short children’s films for The Great Space Coaster, working as post-production supervisor on hundreds of animated episodes of The Transformers, G.I. Joe, Jem and the Holograms, My Little Pony, and writing several animated episodes of G.I. Joe and Jem and the Holograms. At one point, he produced trailers for “King of the B-Movies”, Roger Corman.

While working full time to support his family, Eric attended Southwestern Law School’s evening program and after graduation worked at one of the most prominent law firms in the state, where he was a Partner for a decade. Eric was regularly involved in complex litigation matters in California and throughout the country, primarily focusing on business, entertainment, real estate, title and escrow related litigation. In 2010, Eric started his own firm along with several of his colleagues, Early Sullivan Wright Gizer & McRae LLP (“Early Sullivan”). Early Sullivan, which now has 30 attorneys, has been recognized as Boutique Firm of the Year by the California Daily Journal, and has been named as a Best Law Firm by U.S. News for several years running. Eric has been the firm’s Managing Partner since its doors opened, has successfully tried several cases to verdict – one of the results being awarded Defense Verdict of the Year by the Daily Journal, and has overseen countless complex lawsuits in which the firm’s clients have prevailed. During the normal course of his practice, Eric has also handled several cases in which he has represented homeowners whose properties have been victimized by real estate fraud, in which fraudsters try to steal their homes. He has been able to regain control of the properties for his clients.

Among various honors, Eric is the Past President of Southwestern Law School’s Entertainment and IP Alumni Association, was selected for inclusion in Best Lawyers in America every year since 2017; and has been named a Southern California Super Lawyer every year since 2005.
