Joe Biden Planning Sham Imitation Presidential Briefings

Biden will offer dueling press briefings. But he’s not the President.

Joe Biden is reportedly preparing to start giving imitation Presidential briefings, seeking the steal the thunder from the real press briefings President Trump has been giving on a regular if not daily basis since the beginning of the Chinese coronavirus crisis.

Biden told the media that he’s planning on starting the daily briefings as early as Monday.

A schedule of regular press briefings would actually represent a major departure for the former Vice President’s campaign strategy, which has largely sought to keep the gaffe-challenged candidate out of the public eye. Biden, perhaps shockingly for an all-but presumptive major party nominee, hasn’t appeared in public for three days as on Sunday morning.

He’s spoken for duration as short as ten minutes during major campaign events, making some spectators question as to whether his campaign staff is trying to keep him out of the public eye.

Liberals have expressed fury with President Donald Trump’s briefings, and one Washington Post opinion columnist called for the briefings to be ignored by major TV news networks. Such a media approach would run in the face of the American tradition of Presidents speaking directly to the people in times of crisis, with Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s fireside chats being a prominent example during World War II.

Biden ultimately is just a candidate as of now and doesn’t possess the powers of the President, so it’s not entirely clear what his pseudo-presidential briefings will entail. Perhaps he’ll monday-morning quarterback and question every facet of the federal government’s coronavirus strategy.

However, the plan could easily backfire on the gaffe-challenged Democrat. His propensity of forgetfulness could raise questions about whether or not the likely Democratic nominee has the acuity to govern as President in times of crisis such as these.

“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate

So much for moderation and unity…

Published

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.
