The weird thing about the media promoting Joe Biden as the Anti-Trump, the Return to Normalcy, the negation of all things Trump, is that Joe, with his vanity, competitiveness, and lack of a filter is the second most Trump-like man in America.

Biden is #2 only to Trump in number of “I can’t believe he just said that” moments.

And Trump’s “I can’t believe he just said that” quotes tend to be either obviously not true (salesman’s puffery or egomania) or obviously true (but mildly politically incorrect and thus unmentionable in polite society).

In contrast, Biden delivers more “Huh, well, I did not see that one coming” bits of pure zaniness. For example, after talking to Jacob Blake’s dad in Kenosha, Joe announced that Thomas Edison did not invent the light bulb, a black man did, and that fact must be taught in our schools.

Who knew that Joe Biden was Hotep-pilled on the Light Bulb Question? Indeed, Joe probably didn’t know that himself until he heard himself say it.

    The pedo.

  3. That doesn’t come off as senile. At worst it’s a mildly cringey attempt to be charismatic and fun, which is something he generally succeeds at. Mickey Kaus likes to say that Biden’s cognitive decline has actually made him more charismatic, ironically because it’s made him less obsessed with his lack of intelligence and credentials.

    Trump can be charismatic, but he’s also compulsively combative and anticharismatic at times, whether that be because of moodiness or company I don’t know. But even his charisma is repellent to many people, principally educated women. Women can be of two minds (nice way of saying hypocritical) when it comes to men’s charisma around sex, but when it comes to politics I’ll take them at their word that they despise Trump.

    When has Joe Biden actually been fun? I get that he wants to be the life of the party but he’s not witty or really anything. He just seems like the dude at the frat who is always trying to throw you a beer as a pretext for a conversation. Go away try hard.

    I guess it’s not quite as cringe as “please clap”, but it’s mighty close.

  8. I kinda like this. It’s just a bit of old school ball busting. If Biden’s senility is showing here, it’s simply because he forgot that you cannot make any remarks that could be interpreted as being slightly insensitive to anyone anymore.

    Of course if Trump had made the same stupid attempt at humor, we would have immediately seen:
    1. A full court press by the media about Trump’s insult of the troops.
    2. An open letter published in the NYT by a bunch of retired military brass about how Trump’s remarks harm morale.
    3. Fact checking by Vox showing that there is a lower prevalence of soldiers born to single mothers than in the general population, so Trump’s use of the word bastard is a lie.

    Dems probably released it on purpose knowing that it:
    1. Would be seen by many people;
    2. Shows Biden speaking coherently at a normal pace and volume; i.e., before his dementia set in; and
    3. Would be taken by most viewers to be recent footage.

    Yes, Joe has those qualities. No, he is NOT the second most Trump-like man. That is called gaslighting on your part, Mr. Sailer.

    But knowing the game and how it’s played is half the battle. Hatefact Hat Tip (a blast from the past for Mr. Sailer) –>

    Steve’s income is dependent on skating between being *just* moderate enough…that he can be read by some of the mainstream and yet catering to the people that actually pay for his living…He’s the clearest example of dog-whistle blogging I’ve ever seen, feeding his supporters just enough to ensure they know he’s “one of us”, without crossing the boundary that gets him discarded by every mainstream blogger (instead of just most of them).

    The fact of the matter is that, compared to past presidential elections, American citizens have already made up their minds** who they are going to vote for–Biden, Trump, 3rd party, or no vote for either candidate. So the video is not going to magically be the tipping point that galvanizes “fence sitter voters” to change sides because of Joe’s apparent disregard and disrespect for the American military.

    I remember seeing a story while Boris Yelstin was running for reelection as President of Russia that Russian media was covering up for him because they didn’t want to come under state control if his opponent won. They essentially said, “we will go back to objective reporting after the election.” There may be a more extreme version of that happening with Biden. The legacy press buries these stories now in hopes Biden will win, but will start promoting them after he is elected to build a groundswell to push him aside so he is replaced by Kamala Harris. Jill Biden might be an even worse person than Hillary for letting him go through this.

    Current performative panic over Peaceful Transition Of Power is a good example of this (outrage at a mild lapse of P.C./exquisite table manners).

    If you watch the presser, the reporter’s shouted “Will you commit to a PTOP” question is an obvious gotcha with zero news value, implying reporter’s belief Trump will lose the election which hasn’t technically happened yet; and unfortunately for decorum, Trump did his cagey “We’ll see what happens” spiel that he’s done a hundred times just this year, since he apparently doesn’t enjoy submitting to journalists in their dominance ritual to the extent other Reliable Sources do in their unquenchable lust for SNR.

    I’m not iSteve (as some lovingly call him) but I had the same question when a recent column of his a few weeks back was titled something like “Biden Now Hotep Pilled.”

    Some internet sleuthing of the most lazy sort reveals that “Hotep” refers to some (mythical, probably) black (Black!) Egyptian pharaoh or scientist or somebody who invented nearly everything you think the Greeks invented.

    So to “Hotep” is to advocate the idea of black stolen inventions (Hotep being a major, early victim) by whites. So I think.

    To “pill” something (future researchers of this site will thank me for these notes) references the “Matrix” films where people were given black or red pills to make them think reality was something else. I can’t recall the details now. I’ve been green pilled for a while myself, so…

    The Hoteps are awesome. Best role models for black Americans that exist today. They are anti-Zionist, anti-sex-pervert, pro-religion, pro-natalist, pro-nationalist, and anti-criminal.

    The Hotep mindset has its problems, but the more blacks who come to follow their philosophy, the better things will be for American whites. Would you rather have American blacks taking cues from Killer Mike, Jay-Z, Anthony Anderson, and LeBron?

    While there is much legit criticism to point at Trump, the problem is that in the issues that alienate “college educated women”
    — Trump is not narrative compliant
    — Trump is not nice
    Trump is 100% in the right and “college educated women” are 100% wrong.

    The narrative all these women have sucked up from Hollyweird and female TV is 100% bullshit. And politics is not the place for niceness–particularly to these people who have push the bullshit narrative and are wrecking the nation.

    Of course, the root problem that our educational and media institutions have fed these lemming like women this narrative. They are like a cancer–part of our own body turned against us, killing us. And that emphasizes what a catastrophe it is to particularly allow high-IQ hostiles into one’s nation and elite.

    Yes, Joe has those qualities. No, he is NOT the second most Trump-like man. That is called gaslighting on your part, Mr. Sailer.

    The complicated irony you’re missing is Biden actually personifies what Dems think Trump is.

    That is, Biden actually IS a stupid asshole. He’s kind of like Ted Baxter. He doesn’t know he’s made a mistake till corrected.

    Trump always knows what he’s saying, and who it will piss off, for desired effect.

    The similarities and differences between Biden and Trump are the same as between Ted Baxter and Howard Stern. Superficially similar, yet a world of difference.

    The big split seems to be children/not children, as opposed to educated/not educated. Having said that, they correlate, because many women put off or fail to have children because they pursue their educations, or conversely devote themselves to their educations because they failed to form a family. The educated women I know who managed to have > 2 children (they exist!) tend to quite far right, usually further right than their husbands.

    I think one of the major issues with the educational system is that it was essentially designed for the life trajectory of men, and women were just sort of kludged in later. It’s not a big deal to take 4-8 years out of men’s 20s for the purposes of education and early career development; it doesn’t really cause problems from a reproductive perspective. For women however that really causes problems.

    A better design for women would be to make education part time and stretch it out longer, or delay it until after childbearing. Unfortunately this is one of those prisoner’s dilemma situations: it would be good for all women if this was the norm, but any individual woman will want to break ranks and go to the men’s university to be in proximity to a pool of desirable men.

  89. Trump makes his comments because he is an uncouth boor whose wealth and power allow him to be frank.

    Biden makes his comments because he is senile, cannot determine (or remember) his current social context, and is mentally and emotionally out of control.

    One of these type of people makes for an unpopular president. The other type makes for an easily manipulated, short sighted, destructive one.

    The democrat “play” is that Biden will have no presidential responsibilites other than P.R./ mascot related ones. The assumption is that no one will challenge this, due to leftist control of the media, and possibly both the house and senate.

    The issue is that most near future problems will not come from domestic sources, but rather international ones. My guess is that China, Russia, and Iran will strongly and openly challenge a “Biden” presidency, likely in concert. I think is “Biden” becomes president, full scale war is very likely.

    I really hope trump wins, because just putting this stuff of 4 more years would be hugely advantageous to the U.S., and everyone in it. I think biden (or his handlers) will take any bait offered, much like Obama did with putin/syria., but with far worse consequences.

    What’s amazing is that the U.S. deep state seems to be genuinely distracted by this domestic garbage of the past 4 years. They really believe that they can “reset” the world with biden as president. Above all else, that is the most disturbing aspect of this situation.

    Mr. Biden motions with his arm broadly in a direction to his back, taking credit for “appointing Johnson to the Military Academy” followed by dead silence.

    I think Mr. Biden was claiming that the best thing he ever did was exercise his role as a Member of Congress to make these recommendations to get their commanding officer into the Academy, and you have to appreciate that the CO is never universally loved by the people under him, especially an Academy-trained, and you know the reputation even within the Service, of these guys having a high opinion of themselves.

    So silence, followed by “clap, you stupid bastards” and then an audience response. The military audience members are “stupid bastards” for not clapping on cue on behalf of their CO, and yes, that is funny and great timing on Mr. Biden’s part of “working a room.”

    He loves this country, he cares about people, and I’ve observed kindly words and actions from him. He can be as abrasive as he likes.

    “Cuties” (“Les mignonnes”) is probably available for free on YouTube or somewhere else. I can assure you the “titillating” moments are rare and only if you’re a bit sick to begin with. The rest of the film is a depressing coming-of-age story of a Muslim girl in the West, which is doubly depressing in itself.

    I have a graduate degree. My three adult children have university degrees and are multilingual. I have worked (albeit, I am lucky to work for myself) all my life since I was 18. I did not grow up with wealthy parents providing for me. It was all my own drive.

    I met my husband late in my life – I was in my early 30’s. And, we were reasonable people (this is why one marries) who knew how to “make it work” a la’ Tim, one of my mentors!

    Women in the Scandinavian countries that you all, so much admire, need to remember that we are a homogeneous society – most, 98% ethnic. Our society has rules that are not understandable by Americans – we respect both Christian and Pagan holidays.

    I am just horrified when I first learned about captive children: 2000. My close friend, at the time, one of the most charismatic women both my husband and I had met, finally told me about her past: it was so creepy that she swore me to not tell my husband nor anyone else.

    Her mother (vague memories) was a hooker who sold her as a baby/toddler – this is in Italy. The last memories she has was with being in an orphanage in Italy as a teen – a huge amount of years were just missing, I later learned.

    She did well, got an education, got a job and met an American student. She moved to the USA with him to another state, and, later, moved to where I was. We were instantly friends because we had young kids and laughed a lot, cooked for our kids, and were, yeah, both European – she sensed it of me, even if I had been here for 35 years.

    We had so many laughs. She started to disclose to me what exactly went on for the 11 years that she was captive as a child, and, then I realized, there is no way to help people like her! I was panicked! I called my SIL to describe that this was a child, now a woman, who was trafficked/kept in a cage (according to her) and, what should I do?

    She never opened up to me after one night of drinking, and 4 months later, they moved – her husband was laid off – it was 2001. We tried to stay in touch, but it dwindled. And, I found out just recently, that she has not been heard of for 10 years. She and her husband divorced, but he does not know what happened to her. He believes she killed herself It is just awful. I will post a photo of us when I can find it. But, Child trafficking is a thing – it is real.

    I come from Finland where we are homogeneous, but we have the same issues, but not fortified with racial hysteria: we have new immigrants.

    Women in Finland, foreign born or indigenous, have the same social services. Therefore, our children receive the same curriculum, every week, in schools across the country. Women, who are also teachers, receive the same sick-leave and all that. But, all teachers are paid the same amount according to the years they have spent. Finland can do this because they have only 5.4 million people. Stop making Finland an example. 98.9 people are ethnic Finn. America can never deliver this because it requires for personal initiative.
