Surely This Scares Even Democrat Voters…
Republican presidents endure press conferences with insulting accusations screamed at them from all angles. But it’s different for Democrat presidents.
President Biden was photographed at his press conference today with a crib sheet, with a photograph of the “journalist” he was supposed to call on first, her name (with pronunciation), and the question she was going to ask. Sure enough, he called on her first, and she asked the question on the crib sheet. And sure enough, his answer still made no sense. But not for lack of trying with the coordinated efforts of the “media” and the Biden administration.
Democrats are the party of centralized government power. And the “media” and every bureaucratic organization from the FBI to the CDC supports the party of centralized government power however they can. Surely this gives even Democrat voters the creeps. The coordination of the propaganda media, the power of all the federal agencies, federal control of social media, etc. – all in lockstep. Holy crap. This is scary, scary stuff. No matter what side you’re on. Surely this scares even Democrat voters. Surely…Published in General
Democrats won’t care.
They don’t care about anything.
No matter what, they will vote Democrat. It does not matter what they do. They will never stop.
Usually the optimist Dr. B. But not on this issue. Think Bryan is right. Dems want power. The progressives want to grind us d0wn real quick. See the idiot Sec. Granholm talking about make US tanks electrical by 2030. The liberals less so but like the benefits. Private jets, drinks with John Kerry in Davos, etc.
My girlfriend, can I say that at this age, was part of the Korean business delegation there with President Yoon, and the talk among the Koreans was how the heck did this guy get elected?
OK, so the journalists give the questions beforehand and Biden’s staff writes the answers? What is the point of having an in-person press conference? It seems like this could have all been handled through email.
Nah. It does not scare Democrats. It’s only scary if you think about it. If they could think they would not be Democrats.
It is all about pretense and appearences.
Still unclear, but whatever happened it sure did involve more than double the Biden margin of victory in illegally cast or counted votes in multiple swing states.
And . . . that Deep State/Big Tech thing.
It hides the fact that Brandon is a potted petunia at this point.
And might still win next year. What a world. Guess it could be worse. Maybe he gets pulled to the sidelines with a mini stroke and Cacklin’ Kamala takes charge.
If it keeps The Orange One away from the oval office, Democrat voters are OK with it. The real question is: Exactly how far would they be willing to go?
I don’t think it scares them. They want power and they know they can keep it by re-electing this windsock. It is mind-boggling though.
Not just The Orange One. Any Republican. He’s just the current Hitler.
As for how far they’ll go? There’s no limit.
Did the media call them MAGA idiots for asking that?
Trump isn’t as conservative as his base. Tells you what the Dems think of us.
Better yet, via snail mail (USPS) so fewer people would be exposed.
They’re too polite to let the Americans hear them.
The Democrats believe that the non Democrats are evil, mean, hateful, racist. That the Democrats are the side of all that is good. The Democrats will win 2024 just like they did the 2020 one. For the same reasons.
No, it doesn’t. Democrats accept that the president is a mere figurehead; a placeholder for the will of the party.
The Democrats are largely government or government-adjacent. Why would they want to give up their position on top of the heap?
What these photos do not capture is that the President was also reading scripted answers to the submitted questions. If you watch the video of the press conference, you will notice it. For much of his responses, he is clearly reading from something on the podium. The fact that he is outside and wears his ridiculous tough guy Ray Bans allows them to mask the movement of his eyes, but you can see the reflection of the script in front of him in the glasses! 😂 If we still had an independent press corps, they would refuse to participate in an arrangement where they are required to submit their questions to the White House in advance, knowing that this will allow the staff to script a response to their questions. Exhibit #1,284,932 in “Imagine if (Insert Republican President) did this!”
Courtney Subramanian, the reporter featured in that photograph, posted a tweet this morning and got totally ratioed. Check out the replies:
Nah, the Dems are not scared.
They have believed since Jan 2017, if not before then, that Trump was ultimate evil.
His very few supporters in the media are labeled as being White Supremacists. (As one example: those are the words used inside Tucker Carlson bio on wikipedia.)
By extension anyone who is a Republican deserves to be scrutinized. Those Republicans who entered the US Capital Building on Jan 6th 2021 have endured SWAT teams visiting their homes, outright arrests, being held in prison for months without having a trial and then having their case heard by a kangaroo court. Some are now held for lengthy sentences – including up to seven years for minor activities that were trumped up to unreasonable charges.
So yes as you eloquently state “Democrats are the party of centralized government power. And the “media” and every bureaucratic organization from the FBI to the CDC supports the party of centralized government power however they can. Surely this gives even Democrat voters the creeps. The coordination of the propaganda media, the power of all the federal agencies, federal control of social media, etc – all in lockstep” — this is indeed happening.
But the Lefties don’t care. This new totalitarian state is exactly what they believe will protect them from the possibility of having their feelings hurt.
Plus even more importantly, this totalitarian state will ensure that we never again have a president who undertakes sensible activities that enhance the economy and ensure we have decent lifestyles.
The amount of stupid that is being produced and promoted is accelerating in volume and quantity daily. The slowly boiling frog is now the wrong metaphor: it’s more like the old beat up V8 sedan madly running people down in the street.
I will ask again: consider how things would be different if the entire GOPestablishment had not decided in 2016 to hobble and subvert the first Trump administration and support Dem activities to attack him; and instead worked to further conservative principles and American interests.
Nah, They couldn’t risk having an additional 37,000 envelopes magically appearing that seems to just so happens for democrats.
Absolutely terrifying. This should be in every ad against every democrat candidate. Every so called journalist in attendance should be fired for incompetency. Even the Babylon Bee can’t make this more satirical than it already is.
That’s the scary part. It’s not incompetency. It’s something much more sinister, and much more terrifying.
You folks will be shocked to learn that this story has not hit the CNN website yet.
I’m looking forward to reading their interpretation of these events…
When I was in grad school and we were studying our brains out for PhD comps for months the EdD crowd got their questions in advance. I still don’t think it’s a real degree.
