Joe Biden Will Set Up Vice Presidential Selection Committee by May 1st

In case you forgot about his campaign.

Joe Biden is preparing to appoint a team of advisors who will help him select a Vice President, stating that he’ll have the team in place by May 1st.

The former Vice President said as such during an appearance on ‘The Late Late Show’ with James Corden on Wednesday.

Biden has previously pledged to appoint a woman as his Vice President, placing an emphasis on the gender identity of his running mate over actual policy. Loyal establishment Democrats such as Amy Klobuchar and Kamala Harris have been touted as likely contenders for Biden’s vice presidential nominee. Biden’s insistence on a female running mate could be a convenient rebuff to calls for him to place New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on the ticket, who some Democrats are hoping will eventually replace Biden at the Democratic convention.

The list of potential running mates touted by supposed campaign insiders largely come from Biden’s wing of the Democratic Party, suggesting that the party establishment figure is uninclined to balance out the ticket by selecting a Democrat from the progressive wing of the party.

Biden stated that his campaign expects to narrow down the candidates for the vice presidential slot to two or three contenders by late July, suggesting that he’s not nearing a decision on his running mate in the immediate future. The Democratic convention is scheduled for August, although the premise of physical political conventions appears to be more in doubt than ever on account of the Chinese coronavirus epidemic.

“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.
