Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden said that he receives damaging information about his Democrat opponents, even though Biden previously said he will not personally “speak ill” of his intraparty rivals.
How big is the Biden opposition research machine, and how much material from it will end up in the press with or without Team Biden’s fingerprints on it?
“I mean, I get all this information about other people’s pasts, and what they’ve done and not done. And you know, I’m just not going to go there. If we keep doing that — I mean, we should be debating what we do from here,” said Biden in a CNN interview.
Joe Biden is sliding hard in the polls, with his black support dropping by half since early June according to one survey.
Biden has been in Iowa, where his invented common-guy image should help him, but Kamala Harris’ race-based attack on Biden at the Democrat debate is hurting him.
Biden has weathered controversy over his inappropriate groping and sniffing of women and children and his past support for segregation, and has been caught telling wealthy donors that nothing would fundamentally change for them if he is president.
Reuters reports: “Polls show Harris, who also was in Iowa around the July 4th holiday, has surged in the Democratic race since she confronted him.
In Iowa, a Suffolk University/USA TODAY poll taken after the debate showed Biden still leading, but Harris jumping into second place ahead of rivals Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, both U.S. senators.
A national Reuters/Ipsos poll also found Biden still ahead, but his support was down 8 percentage points from a similar poll earlier in June. Among blacks, support for Biden was cut in half.
A CNN national poll showed Biden’s support dropping 10 points since May.”
Reuters passage ends
A top Joe Biden 2020 campaign fundraiser informed the former vice president that he is leaving the campaign effort, spelling further trouble for the beleaguered Democrat from Delaware.
“I had actually let the campaign know I’d pulled back my support of Biden for now,” said Tom McInerney, a lawyer from San Francisco and past Obama bundler who also noted “I would imagine I’m not alone.”
“I don’t think he did well last night,” McInerney said in an interview with CNBC the day after the debate.
Biden is also being slammed for previously supporting segregation, saying in a 1975 interview that de-segregation undercuts the concept of “black pride.
The intrepid Alana Goodman reported on Biden’s 1975 NPR interview in which he said the following: “I think the concept of busing … that we are going to integrate people so that they all have the same access and they learn to grow up with one another and all the rest, is a rejection of the whole movement of black pride.”
Biden called desegregation “a rejection of the entire black awareness concept, where black is beautiful, black culture should be studied; and the cultural awareness of the importance of their own identity, their own individuality.”
Biden also noted that he asked “the blacks on my staff” if they felt he had a racism “in me that’s deep-seated that I don’t know.”
Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden made another revelatory admission in his speech at a Carlyle Hotel fundraiser, telling wealthy financial donors that nothing would change if he is elected president.
“The truth of the matter is, you all, you all know, you all know in your gut what has to be done. We can disagree in the margins, but the truth of the matter is it’s all within our wheelhouse and nobody has to be punished. No one’s standard of living will change, nothing would fundamentally change,” Biden stated.
Biden’s gaffes on the campaign trail, which continuously reveal his true thinking about race and class, are making him the enemy of the rest of the Democratic field and their supporters, and even a large cross-section of the left-wing media.
Biden is getting roundly mocked for his persistent efforts to paint himself as Barack Obama’s best friend and Obama’s favored candidate in the presidential race, despite evidence to the contrary.
“How many times is Biden gonna say something stupid?” Obama reportedly said on the 2008 campaign trail after somewhat reluctantly choosing Biden as his running mate, as reported by the tell-all book Game Change.
Obama’s top strategist threw shade at Biden when Biden tried to insinuate that he was Obama’s BFF on “Best Friends Day.”
“This is a joke, right?” Axelrod responded to Biden’s Twitter offering of a best friend bracelet to Obama.
Will Josh Hawley be the Next Champion for an America First Foreign Policy?
America First May Have its Next Leader to End Wars Abroad
Does America First have a new non-interventionist champion?
Missouri Senator Josh Hawley has been viewed by many as one of the figures who could potentially lead a Trumpist movement after Trump, should Joe Biden end up being installed as president on January 2021.
Hawley has made a name for himself as a champion of Middle America and questioning the neoliberal orthodoxy on immigration and trade. Lately, Hawley has made a pivot towards questioning the interventionist conventional wisdom on foreign policy.
In early October of this year, the Missouri Senator called for the American government to withdraw troops from Afghanistan. Hawley tweeted, “Almost 20 years now in Afghanistan. Long past time to draw this war to an end.”
Hawley’s foreign policy has been a work progress over the past two years. During a 2019 speech Hawley gave at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), he questioned the nation-building policy prescriptions of previous administrations, demonstrating some degree of skepticism towards non-stop interventionism abroad on the part of the Senator.
That said, it remains to be seen if Hawley’s legislative record will fully match his rhetoric.
Hawley is a staunch China hawk, who fears the rise of China and is a strong voice against China’s expansionist efforts. Hawley’s track record shows that his foreign policy views are rough around the edges. Daniel Larison of The American Conservative is not as optimistic about Hawley judging by his votes on the Yemeni Civil War. Larison cited several of Hawley’s votes that may be cause for concern:
“Sen. Hawley voted against the Senate’s resolution of disapproval that opposed the president’s effort to circumvent Congress with a bogus “emergency” to expedite arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE. More important, he voted with the president and most Senate Republicans against the antiwar Yemen resolution that would have cut off all U.S. support to the Saudi coalition.”
Nevertheless, Hawley’s comments on Afghanistan are a good sign that Hawley is catching on to the fact that Americans are tired of foreign wars. Politicians can change their views and behaviors. Hawley is likely recognizing that the America First movement is exhausted by the endless wars and wants candidates and elected officials who offer withdrawal plans.

Journalist Glenn Greenwald, a fierce interventionist skeptic, maintained cautious optimism about Hawley. In a tweet, he commented, “All kinds of reasons to be skeptical of the authenticity here, but — purely as a matter of rhetoric — just imagine any national Republican speaking this way about a Dem administration even 10 years ago. The framework of politics is radically shifting.”

The jury is still out on Hawley. Regardless of flaws in his voting record, America First advocates should continue to push him and other America First leaning Republicans in the right direction. We should never forget that politicians are still receptive to political pressure and the grassroots holds the keys to political change.
Young senators like Hawley are the future of American politics and it makes sense for foreign policy restrainers to lobby them and push them in a direction that favors non-interventionism.
