Team Biden is spontaneously combusting

Team Biden is spontaneously combusting

Yesterday, Team Biden demanded that news outlets no longer bring Rudy Giuliani on their programs – claiming Giuliani is spreading “false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump.”

Because a sworn statement from the fired Ukrainian prosecutor saying Biden had him fired over his investigation into Burisma is “conspiracy theory.”

If only Team Biden had a billion dollars in aid to withhold from the media, this strong-arm tactic might have been a good idea.

Then again, it’s the American news media.  So the Biden campaign probably thinks it doesn’t need that kind of leverage over them.

On its face, this letter to the media tells me Team Biden is spontaneously combusting.

If you’re forced to demand the media not cover this scandal, then clearly you are not in control of the narrative.

This desperate attempt to bully the news media does not come from a position of strength. It stinks of panic and fear.

Team Biden can blame it on Rudy Giuliani all they want.  But the fact is, they have the House Democrats to thank for putting a spotlight on Joe’s Ukrainian dirty dealings.

As I said last week in my column “WhistleblowerGate detonates over the wrong target:”

This information makes WhistleblowerGate look less like a Trump scandal and more like another scandal from the supposed “scandal-free” Obama Administration.

Besides which, given the media’s willingness to peddle Schiff’s WhistleblowerGate, Americans are now hearing much more about Vice President Biden strong-arming the Ukrainians to shield his son Hunter from prosecution.

It’s the Democrats that made an issue out of Rudy Giuliani being involved.  So you can’t blame the news media for wanting to grill and cross-examine Giuliani in order to discredit him.  Can the media help it if Giuliani is getting the better of them in these interviews?

But that’s why Team Biden is so upset. Giuliani is making an effective case.

What choice do they have but to resort to Obama-era media intimidation tactics?

And that’s exactly what they’re doing with this letter.  Team Biden is pulling out the standard Obama Administration talking point that a plain-as-the-nose-on-your-face scandal is not a scandal, but a conspiracy theory that’s been “debunked.”

Clearly they’re expecting the media to do their bidding and shield idiot Joe the same way the media shielded God-King Barack.

But Joe Biden isn’t Barack Obama. And the mainstream media is nowhere near as devoted to Joe as they were to their guy-crush Barack.

In fact, from the breathless fan-girling over Elizabeth Warren and her selfie-lines, I think it’s safe to say a large portion of the media have already cast Joe aside for Shrill Lizzy.

So if Team Biden is expecting 100% obedience to their idiotic demands, they might be disappointed.

That’s not to say that nobody in the Democrat-controlled media will cave to Team Biden’s strong-arm tactics.  Some probably will.

But it isn’t a good look for a Presidential candidate’s campaign team to go on record making programming demands of the press.

In fact, it makes Team Biden look panicked and desperate.

If their defense of Joe was so rock-solid, they wouldn’t need to resort to strong-arming the press.

But it isn’t rock solid.

And they can blame Joe for that since he’s the one who thought it was a good idea to openly brag about his role in withholding aid to Ukraine in order to get a prosecutor fired.

The few times Joe has been asked about UkraineGate on the campaign trail, he’s become defensive and angry. Which may explain why in their strong-arm letter Team Biden didn’t offer to have Joe himself come on to make the case.

Well, that and Joe Biden is such a gaffe-tastic buffoon, even his campaign knows he’d make the situation worse.

Whatever the motivation, whatever the thinking process, sending this letter was a disastrous move both for Team Biden and the news media.

It makes Joe look nervous and guilty. And it only further confirms that Democrats believe the media works exclusively for them.

And in this day and age when so few Americans trust the media, this letter will only serve to deepen our distrust.

The last time Americans got a peek into the incestuous relationship between the press and a Democrat presidential campaign was when WikiLeaks released the Podesta emails.

And what Team Biden did yesterday was save WikiLeaks the time and trouble by simply voluntarily exposing their own incestuous footsie with the American press.

If this was supposed to be “damage control,” I think it backfired.

Sending this kind of letter is not the action of a campaign that is in control of the narrative or its candidate.

It is the desperate, scrambling action of a campaign that’s imploding in real time.

    He’ll still be the candidate. The Democrats know they lost 2020.

      No current candidate will win the D-primary voting. The party will have to sort this out in their convention where the party bosses will select the candidate, leaving as many as half the Democrats refusing to support that candidate, stay home in frustration, or vote for Trump. Violence will ensue on the convention floor and in the surrounding Philadelphia streets, a ’68 Chicago DNC redux. The result: the same defeat in November, 2020, as happened in November, 1968.

    Amazing that the democrats accuse trump of a quid-pro-quo when Biden bragged of a quid-pro-quo as Vice President (but there is nothing to see there). If team Biden didn’t want the appearance of impropriety, Hunter should never have been involved in the Ukraine, or Joe shouldn’t have been requesting that the prosecutor be fired.

    And why has no one asked why the U.S. was interfering in the internal politics of the Ukraine. Shouldn’t they get to decide whether they retain or fire a prosecutor?

    So we have Obama on video relaying promises to give Putin what Russia wants and Biden on video shaking down the Ukrainians and bragging about it but they want to impeach Trump for doing his job. I foresee a jump in hemp rope sales in the future. BUY STOCK.

    I think there is a slightly deeper layer to this.

    The top layer is to damage President Trump by squalling about his asking the Ukrainian government to look into this. This ‘Narrative’ is the foam on the beer. It is so shallow, it is not even into the substance. But, they are trying to make President Trump look bad, so all the Media is concentrating on The Narrative.

    The second layer is is to damage Gropin’ Joe. If the Media is forced to dive in past The Narrative and look at crooked Hunter Biden’s $80,000/MONTH ‘consulting’ for the Ukrainian oil company and Joe Biden’s crookedness and stupidity in bragging about forcing the Ukrainian government to fire their general prosecutor who was looking into Hunter’s cushy deal, that hurts Gropin’ Joe.

    Now the important layer.
    Who benefits? Who is behind all this?
    My hunch is that it is FauxaHontas or someone who supports her.
    She is apparently the ‘darling du jour’ of the leftists in the Media.
    Gropin’ Joe is too old, to stupid, too uncharismatic, and not Leftist enough for the Media to enthusiastically support, or to win the Presidential election.
    Crazy Bernie is leftist enough, but too Old, too Rich, and too ‘Privileged White Male’ for them to support.
    FauxaHontas is leftist enough, is not a ‘White Male’, and for the ‘Low-Fo’ voters, is Fake Indian (hey, she MIGHT be as much as 1 part in 1024 ‘Native American’) enough, and has enough of a fan base for the leftist Media to support.

    Day after day, hour after hour, we look into the kaleidoscope of the democrat/media mind. Spin the lens and see a new bizarre shape. None of it makes any sense. There is no reality. The muttering bum laying in the gutter makes more sense. There is no accountability for a media that broadcasts lies incessantly. Where is the bottom of this pit and what will we find there?

      Ultimately a legal civil suit on the MSM-Democrat collusion to slander Trump has got to be made by Trump to defend himself. Of course, it will be challenged on 1st Amendment grounds and has low odds of prevailing, but already Justice Thomas has declared this sort of speech must be challengeable by victims no matter their public status, like in Britain. Out slander laws are way outdated. When Democrats lie about you, you should have legal recourse no matter who you are.

    I’m reading that in some polls it’s now a 3-way tie between Liz, Bernie and Joe.
    Interesting. There have been no ties up until last week. Either Liz was ahead or Joe. Joe being the most ‘ahead’.

    I bet he’s cursing his Dem friends in Congress right now. LOL.

    Hopefully, out of sheer frustration, Joe will melt down publicly and accidentally tell some truth along with his gaffes.

    Question: Why have there been zero, zilch, nada subpoenas into ANY of the shenanigans by the Dems regarding any of this crap been put forth by the Republicans??? Why have no Dems been indicted and imprisoned? Why aren’t we calling for any of this on grounds of national security alone? Nothing whatsoever is being done to indict for treasonous crimes.
    One answer: Way too many pols on both sides of the aisle like the status quo since they are lining their pockets with ill-gotten monies from so many sources (including taxpayers and influence-peddling nationally and internationally) and surely don’t want to upset the apple cart. To be sure Mitch McConnel and Paul Ryan are in that number on the Republican side. Even Lindsey Graham acts suspiciously in my view.

      Oh the indictments are coming. The timing has to be just right to lower the boom. Stay tuned.

    Why do they all have a deranged look in their eyes. Shifty is particularly bugg eyed.
