That’s Dr. Jill Biden, Defender of Democracy.

By the way, I haven’t been following the Biden Brain Trust enough, but do we have a clue who would be the Strong Man of the Biden Administration?

JFK had RFK, Bush II had Cheney, and FDR had Farley and Hopkins. We knew Reagan would bring Weinberger with him from California. I’ve heard it said that the effectiveness of the Carter Administration was devastated by the forcing out of Carter’s friend Bert Lance on corruption allegations.

One of Trump’s problems is he didn’t really have a Strong Man, although Bill Barr started to fill that role — e.g., in late May when The Establishment was hoping for a Color Revolution in Lafayette Park, Barr made clear to the President that he doesn’t need the Generals to protect the White House, that the federal government has vast numbers of armed men at its disposal, many of whom like Trump.

So who is going to be the Strong Man or Woman of Team Biden?

Dr. Jill?

  3. I think there are actually two plausible time-frames for the Harris takeover in a Biden administration.

    The first, and more likely, is as you have outlined: as soon after inauguration day as can be managed without it seeming too awkward. Perhaps more realistically a few months rather than a few hours after Biden takes the oath.

    The less likely scenario – one that assumes a much greater degree of patience on the part of Harris & Co. than is probably realistic, I admit – is one where Dr Jill Biden successfully holds off the Dem puppet-masters for a much longer period. In this scenario President Biden’s resignation occurs shortly after 20 January 2023. President Harris tearfully and reluctantly assumes the position – so to speak – with the added benefit of being able to stand for two full terms of her own from 2025 – thus giving her (potentially) 10 years in office from January 2023 to January 2033.

    (I love the ad despite thinking Nigel Farage is a cool dude.)

    But I don’t think even senile Biden will give up the Presidency that easily. Even with his cognitive decline I imagine it’ll be hard to win the election and just hand it over to Harris. He might want a little more then a one night stand as President.

    I don’t see a need to prosecute and remove Joe as long as he sticks to the platform he is being elected on. If he behaves himself and does what he is supposed to, then why is there any need to replace him? Simply being a little senile is no disqualification for being President as long as you don’t get so bad that you forget your place and start kicking back against your bosses. Republicans didn’t try to boot Reagan from the Oval Office when he started to drift mentally or was accused of corruption in Contragate so why would the Democrats behave any better?
    Joe will do what he is told and, barring any severe mental or physical breakdown, he will perhaps be convinced to not run in 2024 so the office can pass to Kamala, belatedly fulfilling my failed prediction that she would be the next President.
    The mainstream media, which is a branch of the Democratic Party, will make sure no one hears about any Biden corruption or minor mental lapses outside of our little dissident circles.

    I’d posit that it does unnecessary damage to the Democrat Party, so why make trouble ? Joe cannot possibly finish his term. That will soon be made obvious from within the alternate universe where no one saw it coming. His cognitive decline guarantees that he won’t be called to account for his transgressions and those who pursue such matters will be faulted for their cruelty. The story writes itself.

    It’s the biggest story of the election. Or should I say “non story” of the election. Nobody wants to admit it now, but it’s bigger than the Wuflu hoax and the George Floyd hoax. It’s more like the Epstein thing. It’s totally obvious that there’s a total scam going on, and nobody can deny it. There’s not even an argument that can be mounted to deny it.

    It’s why people (even on the left) are really scared by it. To the point where they don’t want to look. When the news shuts down completely, when there’s an obvious juicy story, you know the fix is in. And that can only mean we’re all fucked.

    Let’s not forget. Biden was in the room when they decided to go after Flynn. He’s apparently the one who suggested the Logan Act as the ruse for the perjury trap.

    Most likely this is what spooked Barr and Durham from coming out with their conclusions on Russiagate right before the election. Maybe this way Barr gets to get rid of Trump and come down on Biden, and walk away a superstar in the eyes of the swamp? Hail the conquering here, Bill Barr.

    Personally I expect Joe to hold on until the ’22 midterms are counted(?) because nobody will pump money into the outstretched hands of consultants and ad-buyers if POTUS suddenly changes pre-primaries. You need a calm flock of complacent, ideological-but-not-too-bright rich people around, in order to work that scam.

    Major Networks Censor Senate Hearing on Big Tech Censorship of Hunter Biden Story

    Nicholas Fondacaro
    October 28th, 2020

    There was some heavy censorship inception occurring on the broadcast networks Wednesday evening, as they censored the Senate hearing called to address Big Tech censorship of conservatives and stories damaging to Democratic nominee Joe Biden on their platforms. Instead, ABC’s World News Tonight, the CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News all boasted about Biden bashing President Trump on the campaign trail.

    “The heads of the three big tech firms faced off against a Senate panel today over censorship accusations. Those claims come in the wake of social media’s response to the New York Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden alleged business dealings with foreign adversaries,” announced Special Report anchor Bret Baier that evening on the Fox News Channel.

    He added: “The New York Post Twitter account was still locked today.”

  51. Conservative Treehouse has a good post on the topic of the Intelligence Community covering up the Biden’s corruption:

    “The Biden network’s attempted communication was not too sophisticated. Their electronic trail of communication was captured and recorded by people inside the network. There is a ton of evidence for what they were doing including text messages, emails, phone call records and traceable meetings with all of the participants as outlined by Bobulinski.

    So, knowing that, why did the U.S. intelligence apparatus not do anything about it?…It just doesn’t make any sense… unless….Unless the objective of those within the U.S. intelligence background (writ large) was to capture and retain all of this information as part of a black file for use as leverage/control later on against a Biden administration, and likely the Biden family.”

    I think everyone not thinking out-of-the-box enough. Remember, while the people vote on November 3, the actual election is not until 41 days later, or December 14 this year. A lot can happen in those 41 days, and if some scandal happens to befall Joe in that timeframe, Tom Perez can direct the Democratic electors to vote for Kamala Harris. The only question would be is if at least 270 electors would have the party discipline to follow that order, as they aren’t legally bound to it.

    I was thinking the same thing when I watched him report on it tonight.

    Then it occurred to me that they may have decided to send hard copies so as to avoid the by now obvious ability of entities to spy on and record such things as emails containing scanned documents. It seems that now every email, text and electronic transaction gets spied on, seen and recorded somewhere by someone.

    Seriously, this hypothesis is reasonable.

    If you really want your correspondence or transactions to be private and safe from prying eyes or thieves, physically sending them can still beat electronic methods. Normally this is safe and dependable. Gold is often sent via registered mail, for example, perfectly safe and legit.

    Maybe ETs intercepted the docs just to mess with Tucker. He’s been doing stories about UFOs lately.

    I think Kamala as president is obscene. She’s like Gerald Ford: selected, not elected, but lacking Ford’s amiable disposition. She is a lousy US Senator who could never have been elected if California had two viable political parties. Her willingness to give head to the powerful makes her popular with Silicon Valley oligarchs, but she does nothing for her constituents. I think she might finish out a Biden first term, but the the Democrat Party is full of ambitious wolves calling dibs on the Oval Office after the Republican party collapses with Trumps defeat. Don’t count out Hillary making another run for the nomination and using her superior evil to stomp Kamala like a roach.

    by now obvious ability of entities to spy on and record such things as emails containing scanned documents.

    This is not at all obvious. Strong forms of encryption such as AES 256 bit are currently unbreakable even by the NSA and as such are used even by the government for its own top secret communications.

    There’s no way that is acting. Biden is literally a human corpse. He reminds me of Walter, the curmudgeon puppet of Jeff Dunham. Such an uncanny resemblance to Biden through caricature and actual puppetry and ventriloquism.

    Yet I know people who voted for him early, and their stupidity as White people astounds me.

    Hate to sound gloom and doom, but White people not voting for their own self interest is an ominous sign of the future. That’s the demonRats in a nutshell. One party bolshevik neo-Luddite rule, like California.

    I can’t predict the winner of this election yet (or maybe ever, I just knew Kamasutra wasn’t going to get above 2% and called that for the nomination race), but my gut tells me that the future is hopeful for a Trump victory.

    …Tom Perez can direct the Democratic electors to vote for Kamala Harris. The only question would be is if at least 270 electors would have the party discipline to follow that order, as they aren’t legally bound to it.

    In a number of states they are legally bound not to do it. Washington and Oklahoma have the strictest laws, not that OK’s will be tested this way. Colorado, Minnesota, and Maine removed “faithless” electors in 2016. (All three instances are viewable on YouTube. Minnesota and Maine were quiet and polite, but firm. Colorado’s got quite boisterous.)

    The Supreme Court backed them up on this a few months ago. The Constitution allows states to punish electors. Indeed, the Constitution allows states almost anything on this matter. A legislature could invite an Indian shaman with his peace pipe to decide the electoral slate. Or the highway department, as one historian put it almost a century ago.

    Hawaii’s and Washington’s deviant votes stood, as did the two in Texas against Trump. Texas still has no penalty for their doing so. The parties will just be more careful whom they choose this time.

    if some scandal happens to befall Joe in that timeframe

    The “scandals” in 1872 and 1912 were the deaths of candidates. Greeley’s electors had to dig up people to vote for. (Three from Georgia voted for Greeley, and their votes were rejected.) VP Sherman died before the election, and was replaced by Nicholas Murray Butler, who I’m sure must have made one of Steve’s blogs over the years, as president of Columbia U.

    (Who is President of the Senate when the Vice President dies? The pro tem? Someone had to deliver the grim news that Taft and Sherman carried only Vermont and Utah. Or was it Maine and Utah?)

    But would a producer be able to encrypt an email and send it out without it first being see-able on the network’s IT system and thus subject to internal spying? Even at home, or in the office, how can he be sure spyware or keystroke monitoring isn’t installed on his computer and thus reading everything he types and scans before it is encrypted?

    Or might he not wonder if, say, NSA has a way to crack it? They wouldn’t let on if they did, yet you say with confidence that they can’t. That’s pretty funny. (Yes, I’m sure you can expound on why strong forms of encryption can’t be broken, just as the Titanic was unsinkable.)

    Call it paranoia, but maybe someone was just being careful not to expose themselves to the unknown, or maybe they just didn’t have anything like AES 256 at the time and deemed it quicker to just send hard copies the old fashioned way.

    Also, on Tucker’s end, if he opens an encrypted email, then the readable version is on his device and subject to hacking or spyware, is it not?

    Who knows, man? Who knows, but you are just getting lost in the weeds. Who cares why they sent it that way?! The essence of your sense of fishiness is that you just can’t imagine that somebody might do a thing differently than you would Do you seriously suspect that Tucker Carlson is trying to fool his audience with this story? Probably a million viewers had the same thought you did, and he would expect that.

    Anyway, after all the stories over the past few years about texts, emails and phone conversations making their way public, from high places, why would anybody at Fox or anywhere else have the slightest bit of trust that anything they do at or for the network isn’t somehow being monitored either from inside or outside?

    And what explains the sudden precipitous decline in non-covid deaths over the last several weeks?

    It could be that so many of the covid deaths were 80+ and sick with other conditions that covid was merely hastening their deaths by a few weeks or months. If that were the case, you would expect to see lower than normal death rates a few months after the spike in covid deaths, when these same people would have died anyway without covid.

    Or it could be as mundane as a lag in the death reports.

    You are right to be suspicious of the NSA – in the past they have done everything possible to undermine encryption and leave “backdoors” for themselves. However, the current expert consensus is that AES 256 bit encryption is unbreakable by anyone with current technology. They are working on quantum computing which may make such solutions possible but it doesn’t appear to be there yet. As you say, the NSA’s favored approach is to install malware or some such so that they can read the document before it is encrypted and so make the encryption irrelevant.

One of the other reasons why the demokrat puppeteers chose Harris (besides the obvious ones) was because, like Biden, she is acceptable to the donor class which keeps the demokrat party afloat–meaning of course Google, FB etc, all of whom with c their heads up China’s ass.

    The contents were removed somewhere in transit. He may very well have asked for signature required or delivery to a castle surrounded by a moat full of alligators, but it would not have made a difference. That is why this event is so strange.

    An employee at a sorting facility noticed that the package had been opened and arrived empty.

    “By the way, I haven’t been following the Biden Brain Trust enough…”

    LOL. just enough to post other than accurate stories about him. You’re not fooling anyone, Mr. Sailer.

    “that the federal government has vast numbers of armed men at its disposal, many of whom like Trump.”

    To the contrary. iSteve’s gaslighting really has ramped up the last couple of months.

    C’mon people, don’t you know your Constitution?

    Impeachment in the House is no big woop, and it takes 2/3’s vote to convict in the Senate.

    With the prospect of President Harris, how many Republicans are going to vote to convict?

    OK, the junior Senator from Utah, but aside from that guy, how many Republicans?

    [Kamala]’s like Gerald Ford: selected, not elected, but lacking Ford’s amiable disposition.

    Plus Ford had 25 years in the house and was minority leader for 10 years.

    For all that he was an experienced executive (which Gerald Ford and Richard Nixon were not)

    Neither was LBJ or JFK or Truman. I would say that Eisenhower qualified since he was a 5-star general.

    His father registered for the draft on 16 October 1940 under the name Albert Arnold Gore. Albert Gore Sr was born in 1907. It’s not going to be clear to too many people as to why a doctor’s son (aged 9 years) would be the ‘benefactor’ of a newborn in Middle Tennessee.

    Well, that was one disappointing article. In the end, it punts on its own question!

    We won’t speculate as to the cause behind the sharp differences in the Biden of the debates and the Biden we’ve been seeing at other times. We just wish to note the wide gulf between the two

    Here’s my answer: if you watch Fox, you’re treated to a lot of selective editing. Same reason CNN fans think Trump is “always lying” and always dogwhistling to Nazis.

    Ask yourself this question: why would the globalists want Trump to go?

    They are getting exactly what they want with him. A pacified right wing populist movement that believes he is one of them. They can continue to stir up the leftists to riot and they will riot at a much higher level in order to usher in the police state and Trump is all the willing to go along with it. These calls for law and order are intended to scare the crap out of Americans, specifically whites to have the government come and save the day.

    All the while it keeps leftist populists and right wing populists at odds with each other and never realizing that they have far more in common than they realize,IE: anti globalism.

    Most analysis of these Biden and Hunter leaks have suggested that these leaks are intended to change voters minds and vote Trump. I submit that it is more likely that these leaks are for the express purpose of motivating Trump’s base to the polls.

    Consider that a significant portion of 2016 Trump voters feel betrayed by Trump’s lack of progress on delivering a key promise, namely the wall and the halt to immigration. Trump knows this and has to throw out the Biden stuff in his rallies to fire people up so that they can’t forget that only he can save them from the evil swamp.

    It’s a massive physiological operation and it appears to be working. The size of the rallies is a good indicator that Pro Trump enthusiasm is high.

    The Democrats nominate a man with dementia and select a woman that appears to be less popular than Hillary, which I didn’t think was possible. This was by design. Any reasonably competent candidate would have beaten Trump easily by beating the populist anti globalist drum and how Trump isn’t a real believer, but a con man.

    Indeed, Sanders would have easily fit that bill bringing populists from the right over to his side. I watched the debates with Biden and Bernie. He destroyed Biden. He would have done the same with Trump. Biden didn’t remind 2016 voters of Trump’s betrayal of populist values, instead he played the orange man bad and COVID thing. You aren’t going to convince populists to vote for you with that message.

    But as I said, this is all by design. Bernie couldn’t be allowed to get the nomination (for the second time) and he served his purpose, namely making the leftist populists think that they would get their guy and when the establishment crushed that again, they decide to stay home on Election Day, just like a lot of them did in 2016.

    Trump didn’t win so much because he was so overwhelming popular. If that were the case he would have won the popular vote handily. No, he won because more leftists stayed home than never trumpers and that tipped the election.

    Turnout, turnout, turnout. The same will be true on Tuesday. Biden abandoning the Bernie wing on all of their core issues have ticked them off, much like in 2016. Mission accomplished. They will stay home in such numbers that it will give it to Trump again.

    If no one gets 270 then the election goes to the House, with each state getting one vote. This happened in 1824, where JQ Adams was elected President in spite of Andrew Jackson being the top vote getter. He received 99/261 electoral votes, or 38%, when he needed 131.

    Bill and Hillary are probably also concerned about the investigations into Uranium One and the Clinton Foundation.

    “I’ve caught them all.”
    –Donald Trump

    Even if he loses the election he’ll still have eleven weeks or so to cry havoc.

    But he won’t lose. It’ll be a bigger victory in the Electoral College than 2016 was. At the rallies thirty percent, 45 percent of the attendees are registered Democrats. He’s expected to get up to thirty percent of the black vote, more than that of the hispanic vote. The campaign is so sure of Florida they’re pulling advertising there.

    One of the amusing things about Biden is that among other things, he thinks out loud, talks too much, says stupid things into an open microphone, etc.

    In other words, what people who claim to be aggrieved about Trump, the “conservative” Never Trumpers in particular, profess to be indignant about, are true of Biden.
