Could This Be The Democrats’ Play?

Sitting here this morning looking at a long list of Democrats that have indicated at one time or another that they want to be President of the United States, and a list that’s growing of those that know they can’t back Joe Biden for reelection. None of the people on the “I Wish I Were President” list have the ability to excite the Democrats, much less the Independents and the Republicans to a point where they can win. We’ve seen most of them before. The Bernie Sanders, the Elizabeth Warrens, the Pete Buttigiegs, and the like. The list goes on and on.

From where I sit today, the Democrats don’t have an exciting player in the field other than Sanders, who is great at packing arenas with college kids, because of his desire to erase their college loan debt, and give them free tuition. But when you look at the Amy Klobuchars, the Hillary Clintons (yes, she’s still thinking about running), and the K-baby Harris’ of the world, you have to stop and wonder…the bench may be long, but there’s no one of quality sitting on it. Even a Gavin Newsome has problems should he decide to enter the fray.

But there is an interesting choice that is on the sidelines that few are talking about. Her name is Liz Cheyney.

I know, I know. She’s just got blown out in her primary in Wyoming a week ago. That’s never a good sign for someone that wants to run for the White House. Typically that nomination goes to winners, not someone that can’t even win a primary to keep their congressional seat! But what if Cheyney decided to switch parties in order to run against Donald Trump? She said she’d do anything in her power to make sure he doesn’t win, right? Would it include switching parties?

In the short view, I don’t think that would matter. Liz Cheyney doesn’t have a very good aptitude for things. Not even for the Democrats. She is a one-note-Samba. It’s “Defeat Trump at all costs”. The rest of her platform is basically non-existent. Cheyney is not a strong candidate, even if she isn’t running as the anti-Trump candidate. Yes, she won Wyoming by 20 points two years ago. That’s a far cry from 270 Electoral College votes!

And if you make 2024 solely about Donald Trump, he probably would win. Trump is great when people are talking about him. He’s great when HE is the message, and if Cheyney were the Dems choice for the nomination, she would have nothing else to say except, “Vote for me, I’m NOT Donald Trump!”

And then we are faced with the same question…if not Biden, who? And that’s a question no one on the left wants to answer just yet!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

Biden Is NOT Running For Reelection!

You can thank K-baby Harris for this one. The Word Salad Queen stumbled through yet another interview, this time on CNN, where she made one hell of an “oops” statement.

She said, “Joe Biden is running for reelection, and I will be his ticket mate. Full stop. That’s it.”

The host even asked her to clarify it, almost in disbelief, stating, “Full stop?” Harris replied, “Full Stop!”

So, one would leave that interview thinking that Joe Biden is certainly running for reelection, right? Well, hang on just an Aunt Judy’s curtains’ minute! Apparently, when K-baby got back to the White House, she got pulled into a meeting and was reamed a new one. See, there are several reasons why a sitting president doesn’t want to be the first to enter a race for reelection. The main reason is, there are things you as a private citizen, or even an elected politician can do, and there are things that you as a candidate have to do. It lowers Biden’s ability to get some stuff done if it’s already announced that he’s running for reelection. And of course, you don’t want to be the first in the fray. Of course, Donald Trump didn’t listen to that advice. He was the first candidate of either party to sign up for the 2020 race. But that was a outlayer. Every other person that filed back in 2017 and 2018 ended up bowing out early. Even K-baby herself who filed for the race in January of 2021 only lasted eleven months.

When K-baby and hubby were headed to California on Air Force 2 for some fund raising, K-baby, by orders of the White House, had to go and talk to the press and walk back her earlier statement. She addressed the press and said that she needed to “clarify” her statement from her interview on CNN. What she said was, “The president intends to run, and if he does, I will be his ticket mate. We will run together.”

Now, there’s the rub.

There are miles of differences in the two statements. One erases all doubt that Biden is going for reelection. The other uses words like “intends” and “if”, which are much less certain. And the mere fact that Harris was ordered to make the “clarification” was proof enough that at some point in the next 18 months, Joe Biden is going to announce that for some unknown to the rest of the world reason, he has decided not to run.

But that decision has already been made apparently.

Now the question becomes who’s next? Democrats are seeing poll after poll of Biden’s approval numbers slipping away. He’s now down to the mid-30’s in most of the polling. What’s frightening to most Democrats is that Biden can’t throw his support behind Harris to run for president, because she has worse approval numbers than he does. In fact, Harris’ rating gives Dan Quayle a run for his money as the lowest rated VP in history. She’s in the upper 20’s of approval. Quayle’s last approval rating was 19%.

So, if Biden chooses not to run, and Harris can’t get enough people to even draw interest (remember…she had to drop her price of getting your picture taken with her from $15,000 to just $5,000, and she still only got a couple of people to bite) who do the Dem’s go with? They have the old social, st crowd of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, neither of whom would sway people in a recession. There’s AOC who’s thinking about it, but probably wouldn’t get passed the “forming a committee” phase, and Pete Buttigieg, who’s been AWOL for most of his tenure as Transportation Secretary.

I’ve even heard rumblings that Stacey Abrams was thinking of running, especially if she can’t win the Gubernatorial race this November. That wouldn’t bode well for the party either…to have a candidate that couldn’t even win state-wide office?
Basically the Dems at this point are screwed unless there’s a Bill Clinton wannabe that steps up from some state. They have no one anywhere on their very short bench that could raise the type of cash involved, or get the type of crowd appeal that several Republicans could muster.

Whether it’s a “Full Stop”, or “Intends” I’d say Joe Biden is done as President.

Eating Their Own

I’ve always felt that since the Democrat party was “one giant tent” that had a lot of people in it that had a million differing ideas of what should be done first, that eventually it would have to collapse. Not everyone could agree on doing things the same way all the time. Someone would want to push their ideas to the front of the line, and that would upset everyone.

It’s happening.

If you take a look, starting on day one when Joe Biden took office, the left has been fighting with itself far more than they’ve been fighting with the Republicans. AOC and the Whackjob Five have basically had Nancy Pelosi in a headlock since the term began. In the Senate, Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema can’t seem to get on board with the progressives of the party, like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. And Chuck Schumer is sitting there wondering what to do about it as he polishes his forehead.

On his first day in office, Biden cancelled the Keystone XL Pipeline project, much to the chagrin of union bosses all over the country. These were the same union bosses that were pushing for Biden’s election over Donald Trump, and on his first day in office, this is how he repaid them!

And it’s been continuing and showing itself outside of the halls of Congress. Uber-leftist Bill Maher blasted former White House Spokesperson, Jen “Circle Back” Psaki when she said she didn’t have an “official position” as to where folks protest. That came in response to a question she was asked if the White House felt that Supreme Court Justices’ homes should be targeted by protesters. Bill Maher went crazy on it.

And of course, the latest example happened earlier this week when Jeff Bezos, the former CEO of Amazon, and himself a very left of center liberal (and owner of the Washington Post) has been accelerating his war on words against Joe Biden. Bezos is blaming the White House for wanting to raise taxes on the wealthy in order to “stem the inflation spiral”. As Bezos put it, all that’s going to do is increase the rate of inflation even more, and we’re at a 40 year high already! He sounds more like a Reagan Republican than he does a socialist!

I guess you can also add in fight between most liberals who are aghast that Elon Musk is buying Twitter and wants to make sure that Freedom of Speech is the rule of the day. Now, mind you, Musk has admitted that he has “voted for far more Democrats than Republicans” in his voting life, and certainly wouldn’t ever be considered a moderate or a conservative. So, why is the left all upset at him? Because they’re afraid that he’s going to make Twitter more mainstream, and less socialist in thought.

And these are just four examples. There are dozens and dozens. Liberals are in such a big tent that they are going to fight it out amongst themselves to see which topic is something that they should all be fighting for. Gone are the days when the Women’s Libbers and the NOW gang wanted to get the ERA passed with the help of EVERY Democrat. Now, it’s every issue for itself!

Is “Build Back Better” Dead?

Nope. Not in the least. At least that’s the way several Democrats in the Senate are playing it today. You’ll remember that back in December, Joe Manchin (D-WV) was the one that killed the $2 trillion tax and spend bill that would have brought glee to most Dems. Not so with Manchin. And with a 50/50 split in the Senate, even if they called this a “reconciliation” bill, they couldn’t pass it on their own without Manchin.

There have been talks between Manchin and Senate Majority Leader, Chuckles Schumer (D-NY) to try and find some common ground that would and could pass the Senate. The two met at length this past Tuesday, and this is reportedly what came out of the meeting.

Manchin said he would be voting FOR a new Build Back Better plan if it did two things. First it had to control inflation, which is running as high as it has in the last 40 years. Second, it has to bring down the federal deficit. Manchin, sounding more like a Republican than a Democrat here, said that he would indeed be willing to increase the corporate tax levels to 25% (it’s currently 21%), and would raise the capital gains tax to 28% (currently 20%). He also wants to see the loopholes closed so “that everyone pays their fair share in taxes”.

Now comes the kicker that might kill any chance of it passing. Manchin said that if all of that was done, half of the revenue would have to go toward deficit reduction and couldn’t be used to spend on new social programs like Green New Deal. That will most likely be the sticking point.

I don’t think that anyone in the Democrat party is going to be upset with a tax increase on either corporations or capital gains. And certainly not one that closes loopholes. What they will go absolute bat-crazy about is the half of revenue generated will be going to offsetting the deficit. Democrats don’t seem to think that a deficit is that important of a deal. Oh, they screamed a little bit about it when Donald Trump was president, but that was only because it was Trump in the White House spending the money. Had it been Bobo Obama, or Joe Biden, they would have gleefully approved the spending.

If Manchin sticks to his guns on this one, I can’t see any real compromise that gets the likes of a Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren to jump on board. They interviewed Dick Durbin (D-IL) about the meeting, and while most Dems are tight lipped about what went on, or just plain don’t know, Durbin said he was the “most skeptical” that a deal could be reached. What is most telling is the fact that Republicans are opposed to any corporate or capital gains tax increase, and joining them on the “no” side is Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema. That means that without a Republican joining the Dems, even Manchin’s best wishes won’t come to fruition!

Remember, if the Democrats lose one seat to Republicans in the midterm elections, they lose the chance to pass any of this stuff come next year. That’s why I think you’re going to see a major push over the summer and early fall (a rarity during a campaign year) to pass as much of Biden’s programs as they possibly can. They know the handwriting on the wall and can see that their chances of getting anything else done between now and next January is the only way that happens.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

But If Biden DOESN’T Run…

Politics is a game of timing. What worked in 2020 probably won’t work in 2024. There are several reasons for that. Joe Biden was seen in 2020 as the guy that could bring America back together after what Democrats and independents felt was a tumultuous presidency under Donald Trump. That hasn’t really come to fruition as old age, and a declining mental acuity problem seem to have hampered Biden.

Joe says that he’s all in for reelection in 2024. Of course, you know as well as I that after 15 months of being in office of a 48 month term, you are GOING to say that. You don’t want to be called a lame duck president after one year in office. But what if Biden doesn’t run? There are several reasons why he wouldn’t.

First of all would be his health. The guy will be 81 years old come 2024. You can already see that he has trouble getting around. He doesn’t leave the DC area too much unless it’s to get back to his home in nearby Delaware. You certainly don’t see him making a ton of overseas trips or visiting the west coast of the US. He just doesn’t have the stamina. That’s not a knock. I only WISH I could have stamina to get up and work every day when I’m 79!

Second though is his polling. Don’t think for a minute that doesn’t play into it. If Biden isn’t concerned about his approval numbers, I can guarantee there are a lot of upper echelon Democrats who have already taken notice. You don’t win elections when you are in the 30’s in approval, and your vice president is in the 20’s. That’s not a recipe for success.

So, who would run? Two names popped up in The Hill recently. Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders. And socialist snowflakes in the party are pushing both of them to reconsider running against Biden if they need to in the primaries. The money, they say, is there to help them. They just need their commitment. Sanders is already 80, and will be 82 by the time the 2024 election is held. Warren is just a child comparatively speaking. She’s 72 now and will be 74 then. And that doesn’t bode well for grabbing the youth vote. And when you consider that Trump is going to be 77, well, it’s the geriatric club that seems to be running. However, Monday, Warren came out and said she was going to run for the Senate in 2024. She ruled out a potential run for the White House, which knocks a hole in The Hill’s article.

Frankly, I can’t see Sanders wanting to make a third attempt at the nomination. I know he doesn’t think that Biden has done the job he hoped he’d do, but still, running for president is a two year full-time job. It requires a lot of passion, which Bernie has, and a lot of stamina. But don’t forget, Sanders had a heart attack the last time he tried this! And the more moderate mainstream Dems don’t want anything to do with his candidacy.

So, who do the Democrats run? If not the progressive wing of the party, you’re probably going to see the same cast of characters you saw in 2020. Buttigieg, Harris, Cory Booker, Julian Castro, Amy Klobuchar, John Hickenlooper, of course, Beto “I can’t win anything” O’Rourke. I doubt you’re going to see Tulsi Gabbard running again after she has been so negative toward Democrats as of late. And that means, yet another short bench for Democrats. No rising star has risen yet. We’ll have to wait and see if one emerges!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

The Democrats’ Dilemma

Chuck Schumer was asked if he was going to support incumbents that were facing primary battles from more progressive candidates. He didn’t answer the question. He said he was focused on “winning the elections in 2022”. That’s where he left it.

What that simple five word statement says is volumes. Schumer is running scared. He had the opportunity to back his colleagues such as Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), who have taken a much more moderate stance than the socialists in Congress. Sinema is up for reelection this year, and rumor has it that people like Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and the like are trying to find someone of a more socialist bent to run against her. Representative Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) has been approached. He’s probably the most liberal member of the Arizona Congressional contingent. He was non-committal about running at this point.

Here’s the problem Schumer has in trying to back one group over another in his party.

The Republicans learned the lesson pretty well back in the Tea Party days. Remember when the Tea Party decided to primary incumbents in Congress? They took very conservative candidates, went up against more moderate Republicans and beat them in the primary. And then when the general election rolled around in November, the Republicans got their rear ends handed to them. It turned out, while the GOP base was all for a more conservative approach to government, the electorate as a whole was not.

Democrats haven’t obviously learned that lesson yet. The socialist wing of the Democrat party wants the support of the DNC when it’s their turn to run. They like the money, they like the organization, they like the support of 44% of the voting public. But they don’t like their colleagues that are too conservative in their eyes. And their answer, like so many answers the socialists have, is to go too far. What will happen if they decide to primary the incumbents like Sinema is that yes, a Ruben Gallego will defeat Sinema in the Democrat primary. Out here in the desert, we’re a purple state now, but we’re a conservative purple state. Only pockets of Arizona, like Gallego’s district, will go socialist. So, while he may win a primary, and Sinema would lose as her “punishment” for not falling in line with the party on Build Back Better or the whole filibuster rule change, Gallego won’t stand a chance in the general election against a more conservative candidate.

And Schumer is caught in the middle. He’d like to think that the same thing won’t be happening to him in New York state, but it’s happened before! In fact, AOC has hinted that she might be persuaded to primary Schumer and see who comes out ahead. And in that liberal bastion, based on what I saw in 2020’s Congressional election, AOC would have to be the favorite in the primary. In fact, she may even win the seat! THAT is Schumer’s biggest fear.

I think Chuckles Schumer realizes that he is going to lose upwards of four seats in the Senate this year and his term as Majority Leader is coming to an end. That scares him. But what scares him more is someone like an AOC, who’s probably as well if not better known than he is, would upset his reelection bid and basically end his political career. THAT is what Chuckles Schumer is most afraid of!

What Has Dems’ Worried

Oh, to be a Democrat in these trying times. Think about the angst you’ve got to be going through. Are you a “moderate” thinking traditional Democrat thoughts…pro-union, help the little guy, punishing the big corporations, raising taxes and spending more than those pesky Republicans want you to as you try to increase the size of government? Or are you a “socialist” (small “s”), who wants to tear down America and rebuild it into some Marxist utopia complete with free healthcare for all, free education for all, free food for all, cradle to grave care all ladled out by a caring and complete government that oversees every inch of your lives?

Do you know what really has Democrats worried today? It’s none of the above.

What has Democrats really upset right now is the fact that they don’t do along with what’s happening in Washington, DC at all. They are miffed at the fact that they’ve had basically total power for the past ten months or so, and all they can say they’ve done is pass one COVID stimulus bill. That’s pretty much it. What’s interesting is that plurality of folks (45%) feel that their party should be more like Joe “Brandon” Biden. They should be uber-leftist liberal, and should stumble around mispronouncing names, forgetting who you are married to, not knowing where you are at any given moment in time, and “in trouble” should you utter a word in public that hasn’t been scripted for you. Another minority (30%) think the country should be more like the Senate Democrats. Now I’m not sure if they are talking about the Bernie Sanders/Elizabeth Warren Democrats, or the Joe Manchin/Kyrsten Sinema Democrats. Either way, they are the “get nothing done” Democrats, where they are content to have gridlock within their own party rule the day. Still, another 25% of the Democrat party as a whole believes that neither is right, or maybe both is right. They’re going to play it down the middle because they aren’t sure.

And this is what I love about what is going on in Washington, DC right now.

You have two groups in the same party that are at total odds with each other. They are fighting and the gap between the two parties in both houses of Congress is smaller than some one paycheck families. As Biden says, when you have a 50/50 Senate, every Senator becomes the president. Finally, Joe has said something that is correct, and I don’t believe anyone scripted that one for him. I don’t think it was even focus grouped!

So, what we have is a political party at odds, not with it’s opposition, the Republicans, but with themselves. They just aren’t sure where they should be going. They disagree with their own proposals and policies. They spend all sorts of time spinning their wheels, and their ideas become more and more inane and out of the mainstream. And yes, America is watching, and America isn’t happy with what they are seeing.

I think it’s funny that 45% of Democrats think the party should be more like Joe Biden, when only 38% of America feels that way. You’d expect Democrats to be on board with him a lot more than that. But that’s not the case. America sees this doddering old fool that talks to himself more than he talks to those around him. He keeps reminding himself that “he’s going to get into trouble for saying this”. This is the leader of the free world! Who in hell is going to get him in trouble?

And that is what Democrats are up in arms about. They all see that Joe Biden is not presidential. They know that Joe Biden isn’t anything more than a bumbling, incoherent man in dotage. And they can see their chances of not only maintaining the White House, but both sides of Congress falling with each passing day. Frankly, most Republicans could have told you that back in the campaign when Biden was limited to 15 minute speeches in front of his staff who were sitting in circles painted on the ground. They had to give him ear pieces to tell him what to say during the debates. They had to get him so hepped up on drugs that he actually made sense for more than 15 minutes. And the only reason he actually won the election was because he was going up the one guy the Democrats hated more than Satan himself. Had it been anyone else…you…me…the guy down the street, Joe Biden would have been beaten by 30 points. And what’s interesting is that every single poll out there now shows that if these two ran against each other in 2024, Joe Biden would lose by 15 points. That is a friggin’ landslide!

THAT is what has Democrats upset and worried today. And the rest of us can all rejoice and watch the car wreck in slow motion. Get the popcorn ready!

Eating Their Own

I’ve been waiting for this for quite some time. Liberals have come from so many different angles, and so passionate about different things, that I knew in my heart there would come a day when maybe the environmentalists would be at odds with the gays. Maybe it was the women’s libbers tearing into the unions. Or maybe it was one minority pitting itself against another. Whatever the case, it seemed to me to be just too large of a tent with too many diverse platforms to be of use and agreement to everybody.

Now they’ve decided to eat their own.

It’s happening here in the great state of Arizona. Progressives, pissed as can be that Arizona Senator, Kyrsten Sinema has come out and basically said she cannot support a $3.5 trillion liberal wish list bill, that it’s too much money. And that has raised the ire of the Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren’s of the world. It’s also rankled AOC and her Whackjob 5 (I think there’s five now, right?) Anyway, it’s got them so upset that they can’t see straight.

Instead of doing what Democrats always do, which is circle the wagons around their own, progressives are taking a page out of the Tea Party fiasco of a decade ago. Remember when the Tea Party was really strong in the GOP? They decided that they were going to replace RINO’s with more conservative members. They ended up exciting the Republican base by putting up very conservative folks. Now, these folks weren’t bad. They espoused conservative ideas, and did so openly and unabashedly. And they won primary elections against incumbents. The problem came in November when they had to go up against a more moderate Democrat and they ended up losing. So, unbeknownst to the Tea Party at the time, they helped the Democrats not hurt them. And where is the Tea Party today? Exactly!

Democrats are going down that same path. When progressives decide they are going to vote against a reconciliation bill unless they get their way with a $3.5 trillion spending bill. And that has Nancy Pelosi over a barrel. She wants to help Joke Biden with his agenda, but she doesn’t have the numbers to make it work. In fact, she cancelled yesterday’s vote in the House because she doesn’t have the numbers to pass it and doesn’t want the embarrassment of losing the vote on one of Biden’s key (and only) agenda items.

So, Sinema, who isn’t up for election until 2024 (the same year Biden is), is going to be “primaried” by the Democrat socialists. Apparently, they’ve never been strong in their history lessons!

Frankly, Sinema is a little too liberal for me, but she is one of two Democrats (Joe Manchin (D-WV) is the other) who have stood up to Chuck Schumer in the Senate and have voted their conscience and broken with the party several times. Certainly, Kyrsten has proven herself to be much more reliable than our other Senator, Mark Kelly, who faces an uphill reelection bid next year.

But one would think that a Democrat is better than a Republican, at least if you’re a Democrat, right? I mean, unless you’re talking about someone like a Mitt Romney, or Susan Collins, or Lisa Murkowski, who flips more times than a light switch, you probably want someone in your own party. If Sinema is up against a formidable Democrat in a primary and loses, what happens to the Democrats’ chances of keeping the seat blue? Answer: bupkus.

But it’s time for these guys to continue to implode. It does make me feel a little better that frankly, the Republicans aren’t the only party that screws things up! At least we aren’t out there stealing votes, right?

Biden’s Approval Continues To Crash

And you can’t blame Republicans for the latest drop in the approval numbers. This one comes to us from Newsweek, a rather liberal publication. They have basically stopped drinking the Biden Kool-Aid, and have actually started reporting some very interesting (and for Biden, troubling) information.

The last numbers that were released were from April of this year. It showed Biden with 54% approval rating, down from first year April numbers from Trump, Obama, and George W. Bush. The May numbers are even worse. Biden slipped another 6% to 48% approval and 43% disapproval in the latest poll.

What is interesting is that there was a gain in his approval numbers. It came from Republicans believe it or not! The GOP folks asked in the 810 respondent survey showed an increase from 11% approval to 19% approval. He dropped from 95% to 86% among Democrats, and went from 47% approval to 36% among Independents.

A whopping 80% of the country said that that we are going down the wrong road when it comes to the health of this country. That number was 90% in April, but the increase, once again, came from Republicans. Democrats saying we are on the right path dropped from 93% to 58% in one month! Independents rating us as doing the right thing with 32% compared to 38% in April.

So what does this mean? Basically, Democrats aren’t happy with Biden at all. They are not supporting his spending plans, and aren’t happy with his policies either at home or abroad. The mere fact that Republicans are giving him higher numbers than what Democrats are is very interesting to say the least. Maybe that’s why people like AOC and the Whackjob contingent, Bernie Sanders, and Chief Wahoo Elizabeth Sanders are not happy with Biden’s plans. And I think overall, most Republicans see the fear they felt when Biden was elected and was going to cater to the left wing of the party. They see that’s probably not going to happen, especially since more moderate Senators like Manchin and Sinema are starting to pull away from the uber-leftist-snowflake agendas being foisted by Chuck Schumer and company.

What the overall situation shows is that though Biden stresses he’s trying to bring the country together, more and more of his own people aren’t supporting him. And while a few more Republicans are, it isn’t enough to drop him into numbers that are close to him having a more negative than positive image among the voters. That’s a very rare instance to happen this early in a presidential term. Even Donald Trump was positive at this point. For Biden to show his weaknesses as much as he is should be sending red flags and blaring alarms through the White House.

The big question is, is there anything they can do to stop the bleeding?

Leftist Feminists Need To Get Serious

I get very irked when someone makes a comment regarding someone in the other political party, or another ideology, slamming them for something. And then when the very same thing happens to someone in their party, they take an entirely different tone.

Let’s take the example of what happened when Brett Kavanaugh was wrongly accused of sexual harassment at his confirmation hearings a few years back, and what’s happening now to the embattled Governor of New York.

In fact, let’s start with the Governor of New York, shall we? In 2018, during the height of the trumped up charges against Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford, Cuomo had this to say:

“Here is one basic fact that badly hurts Judge Kavanaugh: Why won’t he take a polygraph? Dr. Ford did. If he does not take a polygraph test, it is the ultimate, ‘he said, she said.’ “

And here’s what he says now about his own situation: “I wasn’t elected by politicians, I was elected by the people of the state of New York. I’m not going to resign.” He has been repeatedly asked if he would take a lie detector test, like he demanded Kavanaugh to do less than three years ago. He has never answered.

But I would expect a politician to play the “Clinton game” of denying everything. What about politicians at the very core of the #MeToo movement? What did they say about Kavanaugh’s false allegations, and then about Cuomo’s (which have yet to be proven true in all fairness).

Kamala Harris, current Vice President of the United States, was a Senator during Kavanaugh’s confirmation. “Christine Blasey Ford courageously stepped forward to tell her story — it is a credible and serious allegation. The Senate has a constitutional responsibility to scrutinize SCOTUS nominees. A vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination must be delayed until there is a thorough investigation.” And to be honest, I think a full investigation is always necessary in these instances, but Harris was quick to believe the accuser. What has she said about any of Cuomo’s accusers? Crickets. Nada. Silence. No call for an investigation. No saying that the accusers (six of them) are courageous for stepping forward to tell their story. No “it is a credible and serious allegation.” It wasn’t even true, yet the mere thought it COULD be true was enough back then. Apparently not so today!

And let’s look at another feminist Senator. Elizabeth Warren has been a long-time advocate of women’s rights. Here is part of what she said on the floor of the United States Senate on October 4, 2018: “Dr. Ford’s account of the most traumatic event of her life was harrowing. The pain of retelling this story was evident. And she did it for no personal gain whatsoever. In fact, her life has been turned upside down as a result of her decision to come forward. The courage she showed was remarkable. Dr. Ford’s testimony was credible and compelling. I believe Dr. Ford.”

Now, let’s see what Elizabeth Warren has to say when the same allegations of sexual misconduct get leveled against someone in her own party…namely, Andrew Cuomo. Again, crickets…nada…silence. That’s because this woman that was so in the court of Christine Blasey Ford, who threw unsubstantiated claims against Brett Kavanaugh, won’t even say that the threat was credible, the event traumatic, the pain so personal. We get nothing out of her.

I hope there is a full investigation into these salacious allegations facing Cuomo. It’s wrong to let any accuser, of any time pronounce guilt upon anybody. But it’s equally wrong to rush to the aid of someone that politically you agree with, and pull a Hillary Clinton just because someone is talking about someone in your own party, who you tend to agree with ideologically. I expect Andrew Cuomo to deny the allegations. Maybe he did them, maybe he didn’t. I wasn’t there, I can’t say either way. Just as Cuomo, Harris, and Warren weren’t there to witness Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations against Brett Kavanaugh. But if you’re going to come to the aid of a woman in one case, shouldn’t you come to the aid of the woman in ALL cases?

It’s the inconsistencies that kill liberals. And it will kill them in this case as well if Cuomo is found to have been a bad boy!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
