Joe Biden Plagiarize Climate Plan

Former vice president and Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden appears to have plagiarized large portions of his climate change plan, in an incident that provokes memories of previous plagiarism scandal that effectively ended his 1988 presidential campaign.

The Daily Caller found striking similarities between Biden’s climate change plan and those published by various green organizations. The similarities include use of the same exact phrases in at least five instances.

Daily Caller reported:

Biden: “Biden’s goal is to make CCUS a widely available, cost-effective, and rapidly scalable solution to reduce carbon emissions to meet mid-century climate goals.”

Carbon Capture Coalition: “Its goal is to make carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS) a widely available, cost-effective, and rapidly scalable solution to reduce carbon emissions to meet mid-century climate goals.”

Biden: “carbon capture, use, and storage (CCUS) is a rapidly growing technology that has the potential to create economic benefits for multiple industries while significantly reducing carbon dioxide emissions.”

Blue Green Alliance 2017 Senate letter: “Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) is a rapidly growing technology that has potential to create economic benefits for multiple industries while significantly reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.”

He went on to appear to plagiarize Vox, American Rivers, and Climate.gov.

This would not be the first time Biden raised eyebrows for plagiarism. In his 1988 presidential campaign, when he would have run against President George H.W. Bush had he secured his party’s nomination, Biden famously copied the life story and cadence of a prominent British politician’s television advertisement when delivering his closing remarks at a televised Democratic Party debate.

Big League Politics reported:

In 1987, when Biden was only 45, he briefly ran for the Democrat nominee for president, hoping to prevent Republican President Ronald Reagan’s Vice President George H.W. Bush from attaining the office. Unfortunately for Biden, allegations that he plagiarized an advertisement from an unsuccessful British politician, along with evidence that he lied about his college degree, led him to drop out of the primaries.

The New York Times reported at the time that Biden appeared to borrow heavily from the advertisement during a televised debate, changing only the details to suit his life.

Biden first claimed that the statement was original to him, and he came up with the idea while traveling. He changed the story almost instantly, saying he borrowed some of the ideas from a British politician, but that the details reflected his life story.

Advisers to Biden’s campaign would later admit that while the speech referenced having ancestors who were coal miners, Biden had no known relatives who worked in that industry.

The somewhat less partisan media of the 1980s quickly exposed Biden’s plagiarism to the public, largely leading him to call off his fledgling campaign for president.

POLL: 15% of Sanders Supporters Plan to Vote For Donald Trump in November

They prefer Trump to an establishment Democrat.

Published

on

New polling from ABC suggests that Donald Trump is primed to win over a significant share of Bernie Sanders primary voters in the November general election, suggesting that some of Bernie’s Bros don’t intend to bend the knee to likely establishment Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

The poll reveals that 15% of self-identifying Bernie Sanders supporters already plan on voting for Trump in November. President Trump ultimately ended up winning the votes of 12% of 2016 Sanders supporters, suggesting he’s increased his appeal to the democratic socialist’s supporters.

Some centrist Democrats have expressed their personal distaste of Sanders(and some Gabbard) supporters on account of their perceived unwillingness to vote for the Democratic nominee, forgetting that it’s the obligation of American political candidates to win the votes of citizens who chose to support their opponents in primaries.

While Trump and Sanders are on opposite ends of the American political spectrum, they could be compared in a sense that they’re both considered political populists. Trump’s policy positions on trade, some foreign policy, and American manufacturing are closer to the Sanders’ views than Joe Biden’s reheated neoliberal political program.

Perhaps even more significantly, the poll shows that Biden gauges the lowest ever recorded “enthusiasm level” for a Democratic Presidential nominee. A paltry 24% of likely Biden voters describe themselves as “very enthusiastic” to vote for him in November.

With a voter base that seems lethargic in an unprecedented fashion, it’s possible that Joe Biden could go down as the most “low energy” major Presidential candidate in recent American political history.

The poll’s general election survey reveals a tight contest between Biden and Trump, with the former Vice President leading within the margin of error by 49% to 47%. Trump’s polling has improved significantly in recent weeks in ABC’s surveys, in part because of high public approval of the federal response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic.

Biden seems to have largely disappeared from the national conversation in the wake of the historical epidemic, only sparsely appearing on public broadcasts in bizarre gaffe-filled livestreams from a converted recreation room in his Delaware home.
