Dark Brandon Returns: Biden Slurs His Way Through Another Fearmongering Ad Campaign

Once again, Dark Brandon claims that the "preservation of American democracy" is the center of his "presidency," and claims that Republicans are somehow keeping some people's votes from counting.

Dude, no one is stopping anyone's votes from counting -- including all the illegal ones Democrat operatives are "harvesting" (aka, "filling out blank forms themselves").


End Wokeness
@EndWokeness

13h

Biden just released his first ad of 2024.

The main threat to this country? You.

...

John-Paul Berg
@JohnBer02386296

The vilification of half of the country. Literally propaganda to fuel hate and division amongst the citizenry. They're actively attempting to create violence, so they can justify rounding up conservatives.

This is so dark.

...

FrozenNewt
@FrozenNewtND

Didn't a certain political party in Germany vilify a certain group within their country like this in the 1930's?

David Strom:


Biden's campaign [is] is going to be based on nonstop accusations and the stoking of hatred.

Which is what you see in that advertisement and what you will see for the next ten months and a bit. Hate hate hate. Fear fear fear.

The "democracy" pitch that Biden has chosen is filled with irony. As Biden's proxies work feverishly to push Republicans to support Trump, attack Trump in the courts, and remove him (and Biden's Democrat opponents) from the ballot, the president will be viciously smearing half the country and claiming to defend "democracy."
Advertisement

He will defend democracy by any means necessary, including throwing his political opponents in jail, censoring their supporters, sending the FBI after anybody who criticizes him, and attacking the Supreme Court.

There is no length to which he will not go in order to defend "democracy."

Dark Brandon, who by the way solicits bribes from foreign oligarchs and gangsters using his crackhead son and corrupt brother as bagmen, will give a speech on, get this, January 6th to remind everyone of, get this, January 6th.

I've replaced Axios' stupid Zoom In and Deep Focus paragraph headers with my own.

President Biden is betting that enough Americans are so appalled by Donald Trump's role in the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol that they won't let the former president back in the White House.

Enhance... Enhance... Enhance: Biden aims to put the deadly assault on the Capitol at the center of his re-election campaign in the same way he portrayed the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville during the 2020 campaign: as a Trump-inspired threat to democracy.

Lift and Separate: In a speech at Valley Forge, Pa., on Friday, Biden will make clear that reminders of the Capitol riot and Trump's push to overturn the 2020 election will be constant themes in his 2024 campaign.

Subtle As a Dick In the Ass: Senior campaign officials say that the venue is apt as it is where George Washington's army endured a frigid winter in 1777-1778 before uniting his army and fighting for democracy and freedom against the British--Biden will try to rally his party for a fight against "MAGA extremism."

...


Going Full Retard: Biden will speak again about the Jan. 6 riot on Monday at the Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C. -- a Black church where a white supremacist murdered nine people in 2015.

Biden will try to cast the November election as not just about large policy differences -- but as an existential threat to the republic with Trump likely to be on the ballot.

In a call previewing the speeches, Biden campaign manager Julie Chávez Rodríguez told reporters: "We are running a campaign like the fate of our democracy depends on it. Because it does."


You Don't Say: The Biden team also sees Jan. 6 as a way to surmount the president's low polling at a time when surveys indicate that a majority of voters -- including many who agree with him on some issues -- disapprove of Trump's actions on Jan. 6.

They are still running on a fucking four hour riot, while not a one of them mentions an entire "Summer of Love" of black rioters, Democrat operatives, and antifa terrorists setting the country literally on fire for all the months before the election.

And then suddenly -- as if the election were "fortified" somehow-- the riots stopped.


Democrats are in full Tyrant mode. They demonize their opponents to justify the tyrannical means they use to subjugate their enemies.

I say we demonize them back, and start considering tyrannical means ourselves.

You want to paint us as the Bogeyman? Then we shall become the Bogeyman

YOU will be made to care.

Meanwhile: Turns out, their last moral panic that justified the weaponization of government against a legitimately elected president was, get this, nothing but a hysterical lie.


An international group of political scientists did something that no MSM outlet bothered to do in the seven years since the 2016 election: study the issue.

For 3/4 of a decade, we have been subjected to story after story about Russia Russia Russia and how it stole the 2016 election through a sophisticated influence campaign designed to get Donald Trump elected. Such stories were repeated endlessly and, through clever manipulation of the facts and the dishonest utterances of Democrats, were turned into the meme that Russia "hacked" our elections, a claim for which there is no evidence at all.

There is little doubt that Russia maliciously engaged in some social media manipulation to muddy the waters and play havoc on our system, although the evidence that it was a large-scale effort is scant, and there has never been any evidence at all that it played a role in the outcome of the election. Yet nobody ever bothered to look at the evidence until last year.

In a little-heralded study--one that I found recently--some political scientists designed a study to look at the issue and found that Russian efforts in 2016 had no appreciable impact on the outcome.

Details at the link.

Finally: The DOJ is recommending just six months jail for Ray Epps, the only man who proveably, on tape, incited others to storm the Capitol on January 6th.

Other people have been imprisoned for Y E A R S for merely being inside -- or for not even being in Washington DC that day at all!

15 I watched the Mia Shem video on Yaari Cohen’s X. Observations:

1. The comments are horrific. They underscore that Israel will never have peace so long as a single one of these goatfucking vermin are alive. The comments are some combination of “she’s a low-down dirty liar” (about what they don’t specify); “so what, she’s a filthy Jew and what about the good people of Gaza?”; and nasty comments about her appearance (she’s very pretty but way too much lip injection). Half of the commenters would probably rape her again.

2. I believed her. I’m not sure she was ready to do the interview, though. She seemed still in shock, and her empty gaze only gave fodder to the vermin to use against her. I also think she didn’t help herself by editorializing rather than just sticking to the facts (which needed no editorializing). Was the Pali kid really “pure evil” because he wouldn’t share his candy with her? That too gave fodder to the vermin to accuse her of propaganda.

3. After she was abducted and raped, she was left with a Hamas family in their home. This was odd as I thought Hamas kept all the hostages together. She was almost like a “spoil of war” prize for this animal.

If President Biden is going to address the nation on the Jan 6th anniversary and this ad is any indication of what he'll talk about, we should see his approval rating go up and start beating Тяцмp in the election polls.

73 We can not allow Trump to become President.
He will be a dictator who will:

Call Biden supporters enemies of the Constitution.
Imprison Biden supporters, deny them attorneys and hold them without trial.
Arrest Biden and members of his administration; force them to plead guilty through overcharging and threats of decades-long prison sentences.
Sue them endlessly for libel, slander and defamation in deep red states and bankrupt them, using friendly judges who prevent any defenses.
Remove Biden and other Democrats from the ballots
Removed all Republicans but Trump from the primary ballots

Wait.
That's everything Biden is doing right now.

He said he wanted to get the race war started (a common theme it seems, for some mass shooters?). Because Obama had already started the race war. (I wonder if he was on any meds?)

Predicting major political upheavals is about like predicting earthquakes. Nothing will happen is the appropriate hypothesis until it is not. What is clear is that there is a major faultline in America now between elites and common folk. Figuring out when that is going to rupture and cause a political earthquake is a mug's game.

Same as predicting the fall of the dollar from reserve currency status. As you noted earlier today, large amounts of data can actually obscure rather than illuminate analysis.

Speaking of coyotes...

Long ago and faraway...when we first moved out here. Coyotes running in packs of 8-9 down the middle of our street late at night was a regular thing.

The area grew and the coyotes disappeared.

We were coming home late one night during the holidays and not a block from our neighborhood we saw to of the biggest, sleekest, well-fed coyotes I've ever seen. They were definitely fat, dumb, and happy.

They gave us the alpha-predator saunter and disdainful glance as they crossed the street and went down the alley.

I expect cats and dogs to start disappearing in the area, if they haven't already.
These were big enough to go after a kid as well.

198 Three years of Trump's lies about the Jan. 6 insurrection have taken their toll. On Jan. 6, 2021, a man who lost an election tried to steal it. That man was Donald Trump, and the election was for president of the United States...

Trump knows he can’t win this November without convincing enough other voters that he didn’t do what we all saw him do on live television—namely, incite a mob to storm Congress and prevent the rightful certification of Joe Biden as our next president.

A new poll conducted by the Washington Post and the University of Maryland...shows Republicans are now less likely to believe that Jan. 6 participants were ‘mostly violent,’ less likely to believe Trump bears responsibility for the attack, and are slightly less likely to view Joe Biden’s election as legitimate...

Likewise, 11% fewer Republicans (and 7% fewer independents) than two years ago now believe that the punishments meted out to the insurrectionists...were either fair or too lenient.

Three years have passed, and the fight to save our democracy rages on. If we are going to win, it will take a lot more than hope.

216 I've said it before and I'll say it again - the FBI is nothing but a fascist tool of fascists.

I would never cooperate with an FBI agent, investigation, or anything else.

If I served on a jury, I'd assume every word from an FBI employee was a lie.

If I saw an FBI agent fighting with someone, I'd assume the FBI agent was trying to assault the person and I would help the non-FBI agent to defeat the FBI agent.

If I saw an FBI agent in need of help to live, I'd watch him or her die.

And don't tell me there are good agents. Anyone still working for the agency is corrupted and bent. Any good honorable person would have quit and become a whistleblower by now.

It's what you get in a single-party dictatorship of any kind. Dear Leader is always and without exception Strong Like Bull.

Even if he's a decrepit old dotard, he's *still* Strong Like Bull. And whip-smart. And awesome in every way. There is no other choice. There is only the Party, and the leaders of the Party are infallible in the public eye. Strong, smart, decisive, healthy, robust. It can never be anything else.

Stalin was healthy and strong until he was dead.
Mao was healthy and strong until he was dead - he even swam the Yangtze!
Ruth Bader Ginsburg was healthy and strong until she was dead - her workouts were intense!
Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il were healthy and strong until the died, and Kim Jong Un is healthy and strong now!
Putin is strong and healthy - he even wrestled a bear and freed the birds!
Biden is strong and healthy - he's out there every day defending Our Democracy!

It will always be this way. When Biden dies, the next Dear Leader will also be Strong Like Bull.

285 That sure does sound like Antebellum SCOTUS, to me.
Posted by: TheJamesMadison
------------
Luther v. Borden involved Rhode Island and two political factions. After Independence, Rhode Island continued to rely on its colonial charter as its constitution instead of writing a new one. Problems with that rose to a head in 1840 with reformers drafting a new state constitution and holding elections under it; the ancien' regime did the same under the charter. So the question was which state government in Rhode Island was the legitimate one. Scotus decided that whatever Congress and the Prezzie decided was hunky dory.

That in one part is why a lot of folks here are upset at the court--the Federalist Society has long called for judicial restraint to the political branches and termed that conservatism in action. So you get a novel suit by Texas and the overwhelming impulse of those promoting judicial restraint is to derail the case via standing or some other non-justiciable means. The left never has its judges constrain their behavior so Scotus has become a ratchet conserving the worst of prior Scotus decisions as holy precedent even when acknowledging a prior decision was wrong.

My point is that the final results were just a few tens of thousands, but it obviously took a lot more than just that. These aren't 50/50 states that the left is cheating to 50.1/49.9 results. These are 53-47 states, or better, that the left is cheating to 50.1/49.9 results.

And those are real people who are getting shat on not just at the federal level, but at state and local levels as things get worse in other tangible ways than just inflationary prices on eggs.

That doesn't mean that the election workers in Fulton County can't just keep feeding the same ballots through for hours again to get the "right" results. It just means that America really doesn't want it, and America needs to figure out how it's going to react next time.

Elections are a useful - even vital - fiction.

All governments depend on rules and legitimacy. Even totalitarian dictatorships must keep up appearances of being "lawful." The Soviets did it, the Red Chinese do it, our government does it.

In the US, the means of "legitimacy" is an election. There will not be a cancellation of elections. Not this year, not in '26, probably not ever until or unless there is a major civil war or foreign conquest that results in a formal and procedural end of the state.

If the Uniparty loses an election - unlikely, but technically possible - it will use other "legitimate" means in the bureaucracy to ensure appropriate outcomes. Just like last time.

But elections themselves are too symbolically important. They'll steal it and if they somehow fail, the Deep State will again step into the breach and take care of it.

I would agree that they have no mandate whatsoever. Mandates are defined more as a tacit agreement between the voters and elected officials to let the elected officials do certain things they promised to do.

Instead, the Biden junta after seizing power in a coup has more or less continually shit on their political opponents to the degree that a majority of voters (not ballots) agree Biden's junta provides shitty governance. It is but a hop and skip to politically arguing that the junta itself is illegitimate which is why 43 percent of Americans now feel that the Jan 6ers had a legitimate point which is increasing as time goes on.

348 200% = Double Plus Good voting, citizens!
300% = Triple Plus Good voting, citizens!

Basically, there is no upper ceiling.

Wasn't there supposed to have been over 90% voter participation in 2020?

351 They'll never cancel a national election...it's like crossing the Rubicon. Too obvious, too blatant. Much easier to have the election, and either rig it or corrupt it through lawfare later.

I've seen too many impossible things happen since 2008 to take much comfort in that.

She resigned, thereby keeping her &900k a year salary and she still teaches the exact same bilge she plagiarized before.

I saw some test on Twitter/X with a teaser that if you get 13 out of 30 correct you have an IQ of 140. I liked those odds and took the test.

Anyway Ukraine is not considered part of Asia. I guess I shoulda known that somehow but I didn't.

356 The Obama administration overtly tried to influence the Israeli election with support and money to an Israeli Anti-Netanyahu PAC . But the Left makes up Russian influence stories.

The Left have more projection than a bulimic runway model at an all you can eat buffet.

359 But as soon as the average dumbass is forced to give up on their default positions because things are rocky, they get angry. The Uniparty simply does not have the means or the spine to rule over an angry populace of dumbasses. They need the dumbasses pliant and supple. But instead, they Clowarded the fuck out of every Piven in Pissville and now the dumbasses are starting to get restless.

Big argument in poli sci over the masses are asses thesis versus voters have outcome but not policy preferences. What is clear though, pissed off masses may not have specific policy preferences in mind but they can and do form opinions about policies and government action that they hate--e.g. openly supporting illegal immigration, wars, throwing billions of dollars overseas, coddling criminals, etc.

How will it play out? I dunno but rising polarization of the masses is much more likely to cause a political crisis in the near future. Simply put, the elites of the Uniparty are not listening so the masses often try to obtain a bigger stick to beat them with.

360 If the Uniparty loses an election - unlikely, but technically possible - it will use other "legitimate" means in the bureaucracy to ensure appropriate outcomes. Just like last time.

But elections themselves are too symbolically important. They'll steal it and if they somehow fail, the Deep State will again step into the breach and take care of it.

BUT they can severely damage the election process to the point it means nothing. And they're well into the process of doing that now.

Authorities charged the men for violating the labor standards law.

371 Before any absentee vote envelopes are opened the voters signature on the outside of the envelope is verified by TWO people. Unless the Dems have hired 10s of thousands of master forgers i am unsure how fraud could be done.
Unless, in fact, the Dems really do have demonic super powers.
