A former vice president and potential 2020 presidential candidate once believed strongly that women who came forward with sexual misconduct allegations should be believed, despite the fact that he has laughed off his own #MeToo scandal this week.
“For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you’ve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real, whether or not she forgets facts, whether or not it’s been made worse or better over time,” Joe Biden told The Washington Post in September.
At the time, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was in the middle of a vicious confirmation process to the nation’s highest court, having been accused of sexual misconduct by Christine Blasey Ford.
But this week, Biden did not seem so keen on presuming that he has made women uncomfortable. Biden has been accused by five women of inappropriate touching, which made all of the women uncomfortable. Friday, he dismissively joked about the allegations.
“I am not sorry for anything I have ever done,” he later said when confronted by reporters.
To that end, The Washington Post hasn’t been quite so critical of Biden, despite the fact that it was the outlet that broke the Blasey Ford allegations. This week, it downplayed Biden’s touching and smelling, calling it “affectionate.”
The Jeff Bezos-owned blog is garnering a reputation for burying stories about maltreatment of women on behalf of prominent Democrats.
Big League Politics reported:
The Washington Post continued its bizarre coverage of the Virginia’s scandal-plagued elected Democrats, opting to hit the Gov. Ralph Northam for his racist past, but ignoring Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax’s alleged history of sexual assault.
One of Fairfax’s two accusers, Vanessa Tyson, brought her sexual assault allegations to the paper in December of 2017, offering Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.) as a corroborating witness. The paper opted not to run the story, saying that it did not meet its editorial standards because there were no corroborating witnesses. Big League Politics exclusively reported that Tyson told at least five professional colleagues about the incident, all of whom spoke with The New York Times and confirmed Tyson’s story.

“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
