CNN: With A Supposed Biden Win, Things Are Totally Going To Get Better Or Something

See, here’s how it works for Democrats. When a Republican is president, everything is horrible and bad and Doomy and Democracy Is In Danger. Fascism and authoritarianism is right around the corner, if not happening right freaking now. The world hates the U.S. and so do the Democrats

When a Democrat is in office, everything is peachy keen, unicorns are flying around, everyone has sustainable, fair trade lollipops, the scent of roses is in the air, and the world loves the U.S. And Dems love the U.S.

Guess where we’re at now, per Frida Ghitis at CNN?

The reason we know it’s about to get better

Is it morning in America yet? Not quite. But there’s change in the air, and millions of Americans must surely be experiencing the unmistakable feeling that even if the worst is not over, it soon will be.

Optimism has long been one of the distinguishing features of the United States and its people. That sunny disposition clouded over for at least half the country after Donald Trump won the presidency four years ago. That era is now coming to an end, but not before converging with the most catastrophic public health crisis in a century.

Optimism from Democrats? Everything from them is about how horrible America is. Even Obama winning didn’t erase Dems telling us that America is racist and sexist and horrible.

Is it reasonable now for those of us who found the Trump presidency abhorrent to rekindle our optimism?

First, a confession: as much as I have written about the dangers posed by Trump, I spent the past four years telling my most pessimistic friends that I remained convinced American democracy, with its deep roots, would survive Trump’s onslaught. Another confession: I had more doubts than I let on.

What, exactly, did Trump due to harm “American democracy?” If results are to be believed, more people than ever voted in a general election. Who’s freedom was taken away? What freedom’s were taken away? Other than in areas mostly run by Democrats during COVID lockdowns, of course

Biden’s first cabinet choices bring qualified, decent, respected public servants back into government. After an administration that slammed America’s door to refugees, that separated migrant children from their parents and put them in cages, we will have a Department of Homeland Security, responsible for guarding the borders, led by a man who came to the United States as a refugee. Alejandro Mayorkas, a Cuban-born Jew, fled the communist dictatorship as an infant with his family. His mother’s family had fled the Holocaust.

Unity, folks! Forgetting that Obama built those cages. Who was VP then? Looks like Biden is just going to open the doors.

The President who became an idol to White supremacists, who found “very fine people on both sides” in clashes between protesters flashing Nazi salutes and chanting “Jews will not replace us” and those declaring that America stands against prejudice, is being succeeded by one who is bringing in capable public servants of all ethnicities and backgrounds into government. While Trump once made a cringeworthy spectacle of having his cabinet, one at a time, praise him on live television, Biden is nominating a director of national intelligence, Avril Haines, who announced to him and the world, that she will disagree with him and “speak truth to power.”

That fine people lie yet again.

After turning its back on much of the world and seeing America’s standing collapse, the Biden team is telling US allies, “America is back!”

See, only when a Democrat is president is America’s world standing great. Yeah, America is back to being squishy rather than America First. Jumping to the end

American democracy just survived what is arguably the most vicious attack it has ever faced. The American system held up. The American people, voters, patriotic public servants, made it happen. What could be a greater cause for optimism about the future?

Have you ever noticed that these screeds are always short on any actual evidence of Democracy In Peril, on what the system survived. Say, what does she mean by “patriotic public servants”? That they helped the cheat? But, hey, if Democrats want to be optimistic about higher taxes, higher cost of living, kowtowing to nations like China and Iran, government restricting their freedom and choice, well, they’re mentally deranged. And we know that they still hate America.

    Fixed it, but now it’s looking like the clouds are gathering again.

    USS Nimitz to Gulf as Iran War Threat Grows

    Yeah think things are gonna get worse under Biden? Does anyone really know what went down with the pentagon firing of the Sec. of Defense.

    Along with the Sec. of Defense Trump also rid the country of nearly a dozen long time advisors who have been in positions of mindless power for decades including Madelyn Albreight and Henry Kissinger just to name a couple of the high profile names GONE.

    In retaliation a few days after their unceremonious removal from their unelected seats of power Iran’s nuclear scientist was assassinated. Trump was supposedly on the brink of ordering an attack on Iran nuke facilities.

    The question is why? Everyone knows. Even the MSM is not even reporting on this stuff because they know it is the deep state wanting to perpetuate WAR which drives stock prices and makes the owners of these corporations richer and richer. The new Sec. of Defense a Trump Crony says well uh, we will keep a small force in Afghanistan. I suspect to keep a foot in the door so it will be much easier for America to Charge back into the Middle East after Trump is gone.

    If that happens and I think it will be highly likely as Judges receive midnight calls from dark and shadowy figures suddenly changing their minds.

    What has to be concerning is that whenever Trump even discusses something like the strike on Iran it ends up as front page news. Why?

    We all know why? The president does not run the country, nor does congress. (One only has to look at Obama’s performance as a huge war monger to see that presidents don’t run this country) Billionaires and Big Business run the country and deep state operatives do the bidding for purely economic reasons. Their bank accounts. Some of them might have political motives but for the most part it is all about dollars and cents.

    • Est1950 says:

      Remember the quote of George Bush Jr? “The same people advising my Dad are the same people advising me and will be the same people advising presidents long after I am gone!”

      The Defense Department on Friday said that a number of members of its Defense Policy Board — including former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and Madeleine Albright — had been removed. “As part of long-considered changes, we can confirm that several members of the Department’s Defense Policy Board have been…

      This is what Bush was talking about. Powerful figures that have undue influence over the pentagon and WAR!! Does anyone really think that BUSH JR. thunk up the plan to invade Afghanistan and Iraq all by himself? Or how about attacking Yemem, Somalia, Niger, Chad, Pakistan, Syria and Libya?

      No The same advisers advising Bush were making sure Obama carried the torch of war and those same advisers have tried for 4 years to rid the country of Trump because he is the first president since Carter….ANOTHER ONE TERM PRESIDENT….to NOT take us into a NEW WAR.

  3. CC says:

    I guess this “news reporter” hasn’t heard about the middle east treaty or the troop drawdown in Afghanistan, along with all the rest that he’s done they ignore if they can’t bitch abot it.
    I really hate these SOB’s.

    With all the false wornout rehashed CNN memes Russia, Russia, Russia seems to be missing.

    Bwaha! Lolgf

  5. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Israel, likely with Trump’s knowledge, assassinated Iran’s top nuclear scientist in a move to hamper President Biden’s plan to re-enter the Iran nuclear deal.

    This attack increases the likelihood of more Middle East violence.

    • Jl says:

      Actually, more likely a plan to subvert Iran’s nuclear capabilities, thereby leading to stability in the region

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Will have no impact on Iran’s nuclear programs. It was intended to hamstring President Biden.

        • Dana says:

          You have assumed that Mossad was responsible for the brilliant move, and assumed that, if Israel was responsible, that it informed President Trump. The word assume might make an ass out of u, but it doesn’t make an ass out of me.

          But, realistically, which is better?

          1 – Sending in a special ops team to assassinate a top Iranian nuclear scientist, hopefully to slow down its nuclear weapons program; or
          2 – Sending in thousands upon thousands of enlisted infantrymen in a war to destroy Iran’s nuclear capability?

          Israel proved, in 1981, that it would not simply stand by and let enemies gain nuclear weapons. It was a smart move.

        • formwiz says:

          That makes less sense than usual.

    • Est1950 says:

      You are absolutely clueless when it comes to foreign policy Elwood. Iran has already signaled that their response will be tepid because of the incoming BIDEN administration whom they understand could rid them of sanctions, hand them a bag of money and tell them to go start more wars in the ME so our MIC can make trillions selling guns to everyone who wants to kill anyone.

      Iran is less likely to strike now. Not more likely. Get a clue Elwood. If Israel assassinated this scientist it was because they understand that Iran will be less likely to react hoping for massive favors from Biden.

      Additionally the left in America hates and despises Israel and love them some Terrorist Muslims. We all know that. The left no longer even tries to pretend otherwise so don’t go trying to deny what most of them already ascribe as the truth.

    • Professor hale says:

      Are you sure Trump didn’t do it himself?

  6. President Elect Kye says:

    If you’re looking for election integrity don’t look at Pennsylvania. The Democrat machine has been stealing elections in Philly, Harrisburg, Pittsburg and Scranton since I was two. That’s 67 years of vote fraud experience. Just because they can’t “prove” it doesn’t mean it ain’t happening.

    I want to win an honest election but I sure as hell don’t like losing a dishonest one. I really wish Elwood and his tribe thought like that, we could possibly save the Republic.

    It’s now been shown that Pennsylvania had 750,000 more mail in’s than were printed. I bet they weren’t for Trump and I’d bet they showed zero down votes.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      It’s 2020. Judges, even those appointed by Trump, have dismissed every case in PA. It takes substantiated evidence – not wishes, not “feelings”, not entitlement, not accusations, not “history” – to reverse an election.

      Trump’s post-election behavior is intended to salvage his “winning” reputation with the increasingly ignorant right-wing base. He needs bargaining chips. He needs to avoid prosecution. He needs distractions. Distractions from the 400,000 Americans who will die from his incompetence. Will he try a “self-pardon”? Will he work a deal with Pence for a “resign and pardon”?

      Trump is the Little Lord Fauntleroy of American politics; pampered, effeminate, vain, indolent, entitled, privileged, irresponsible, cowardly, dishonest.

  7. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Who said it? Donald Trump? Michael Moore? Newt Gingrich? Romney? Al Gore? Jared Kushner? Obama?

    “If we do not have the capacity to distinguish what’s true from what’s false, then by definition the marketplace of ideas doesn’t work. And by definition our democracy doesn’t work. We are entering into an epistemological crisis.

    I can have an argument with you about what to do about climate change. I can even accept somebody making an argument that, based on what I know about human nature, it’s too late to do anything serious about this—the Chinese aren’t going to do it, the Indians aren’t going to do it—and that the best we can do is adapt. I disagree with that, but I accept that it’s a coherent argument. I don’t know what to say if you simply say, “This is a hoax that the liberals have cooked up, and the scientists are cooking the books. And that footage of glaciers dropping off the shelves of Antarctica and Greenland are all phony.” Where do I start trying to figure out where to do something?”

    We’re at a place in time where some 50% of Americans do not distinguish between what’s true and what’s false. Many Americans believe Donald Trump won the popular vote in 2016 and 2020. Many Americans believe the QAnon conspiracies. Many Americans believe the Covid-19 pandemic is a hoax; with subplots that hospitals misclassifying Covid cases for money; that China constructed and released the virus; that hydroxychloroquine works; that masks worsen the spread. Many believe that global warming is a communist power play. That there is a Deep State behind the Deep State – Soros, the Rothschilds, Council of Foreign Relations, Bill Gates, Trilateral Commission, Rockefellers, Club of Rome, Bilderbergs, World Economic Forum, One World Order, Kissinger, multinational corporations

  8. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Teach wants evidence that our democracy is in peril??

    Try Donald Trump and his minions and cult-members working feverishly (literally) to overturn an election he lost by several million votes and 306-232 in the electoral college! This large-L Loser, with today’s GOP, is attempting take the vote away from American voters and turn it over to state GOP legislatures! This Loser, with his lackey Mitch McConnell, is stacking the Supreme Court in hopes of his reactionary majority awarding him the Presidency!

    A real American male would take his defeat like a man. Instead, this anti-American President and his lawyers invoke conspiracies dating back decades involving Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, who died in 2013! This anti-democracy lame duck, a like-no-other whore for media attention, a man-baby who’s never been told “no” (or if we was told no, raped her anyway), daily attacks the institutions of American democracy, killing Americans’ confidence in America, the nation. This orange, pompadoured, privileged, indolent heir would not only sacrifice democracy for his vanity, he would sacrifice America. He has 40% of Americans to follow him off the cliff. Cult.

    trump’s cult, cobbled out of evangelical christians, white nationalists, nihilists, silent nativists, and wealthy conservatives, would happily support a level of fascist control unknown to America.

    What his cult members claim to fear from Democratic leaders is exactly what they support.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      A real American male would own up to lying about joining the Army (during Vietnam, ya’ know) like a man.

      But Rimjob isn’t a man.


  9. formwiz says:

    Jeffery’s just doing his usual babbling. No real facts and knee-jerk (stress the jerk part) rejection of any presented to him.

    He is the epitome of the complete and total corruption of the Left, claiming to love the public, but setting up things so the small businessman gets screwed while outfits like Amazon and Wally World make baskets of money off the lockdowns.

    They tried a motorcade for His Fraudulency in DE. Only 4 or 5 showed up. A million showed up in DC to support Trump. And that wasn’t even organized.

    Jeffery runs around yelling, “Keep calm! All is well!!”. He knows it’s over. He’s just hoping if he runs out the clock, Troll Central will actually pay him.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Porter Good’s secretary, Sibley, aka foamwiz is still crying tears for Diaper Don, lol.

      Why does he bother? Because he’s a trumptilian, with an underdeveloped cerebrum.

      “A million showed up in DC to support tRump”, he cries! But millions more showed up at the polls and voted tRump out. Sibley should be part of tRump’s A-Team as he makes similar arguments in favor of his god-king. Democracy depends on voting, not tRump klan rallies and mobs.

  10. President Elect Kye says:

    “trump’s cult, cobbled out of evangelical christians, white nationalists, nihilists, silent nativists, and wealthy conservatives, would happily support a level of fascist control unknown to America.”

    You recite these inane commie talking points as though they were facts instead of fabulous projections based on your warped narrative. Also you repeat the foolishness even as it is Democommies who shut down 250,000 businesses half of which will never reopen because of a flu. It is the Democommies who threw 30,000,000 Americans out of work because of the very same flu. It was Cuomo who consigned at least 10,000 elderly New Yorkers to die alone and neglected in his Homes by design. It is your “leaders” who permitted the burning of American cities by Nazis, anarchists, communists and racists because a criminal died in custody. Your mayors and governors allowed people’s livelihood to be destroyed and their homes burnt by these “people” who support the Democommie Party.

    Your party is the one who wants to lock America down and force people to wear masks. You also want to demand who can gather together, where and for what reasons. You shut churches and synagogues. You arrest people for disobeying illegal laws.

    And you still support the murder of black babies in the womb to save their illicit fathers from their parental responsibility while backing a bogus anti American organization like black Lives Matter.

    Even now your comrades plan how to deprive Trump, his family and his supporters of their living and even speak of prison, reeducation camps, concentration camps and executions. You are all hate and projection you liar.

    Exactly WHAT level of “fascist control” has Trump committed and we supported? Why do you hate Evangelical Christians? Who are these so-called “white nationalists” you keep ranting about? I never seem to see them burning down black cities, running around killing black men in the ghetto or closing down black businesses. So where the fuk are they? Just so you know Christians cannot be nihilists by definition and who are the nihilists anyway? Name them. What is a “silent nativist” or are you just making shit up again?

    It’s you flock of thieves and liars who gamed the election, not ours. You have not once endorsed an Honest Election all you care about is “winning” not the truth, not the law, not the Republic.

    BTW, we are not cultists and we don’t “follow” our leaders, we support them. We have our God and politicians don’t measure up. YOU are the Godless pigs who adore your leaders or don’t you remember Hussein in a halo? Umm, umm, umm Barack Hussein Obama, umm, umm, umm you know the old “children’s” chant. You worship gaia and money and show it by blind devotion to an unproven cult that has never made a correct prediction and envy anyone with money even though most of the billionaires and megamillionaires are on team commie with you. You’re their toady protecting their fortunes by insulting the middle class and promoting any and every anti middle class program from minimum wage to tuition reimbursement and reparations.

    Anti-fascists are Pro-communists. Fascists and Communists are just different tribes of Marxists, who hate each other, in the same manner that shiites and sunnis hate each other under the umbrella of islam. And you support it all with a blind devotion not given to one man since Adolf himself.

    Everything you project onto us is EXACTLY what YOU are, plus an unmitigated and profound LIAR.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      President Kye should volunteer at the overworked hospitals and morgues, many at or near capacity allegedly from the Covid infections. If Covid is a mild flu, rather than counting taxpayer monies, step up and help.

      If nothing else, you can document the hoax – the empty beds, the empty morgues, the lazy staff lounging around falsifying death records.

      Sorry, but you ARE part of a cult. Puh-leaze, Donald Trump is anathema to each and every tenet of the christian religion. This new pseudo-christian cult of hatred and cruelty isn’t your father’s christianity, is it? It’s analogous to Islamic right-wing Wahhabism.

      42For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink,

      43I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

      44“They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

      45“He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

  11. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    If President Kye prefers to call his cult a religion, who are we to argue.

    It’s a religion of white American nationalism, fervidly anti-immigrant, anti-abortion, anti-Semitism, anti-Islam, unilateralism, anti-scientism,

    Their leader is donald trump, who they view as an infallible god-king. Any adherent who criticizes trump is ostracized and banished.

  12. joeandthehoe says:

    Once again you ignorant fool, my religion is Lutheran so I’m Christian. That was a very lazy attempt at deflection though.

    First you say “who are we to argue” then you go on to call my political persuasion a cult. So I guess you are you to argue. Now let’s start the usual nonsense.

    What is “White American nationalism”? I kept Googling it but found no party or organization so named. Again, I’M MARRIED TOI AN IMMIGRANT YOU DUMBASS so I’m not “fervently anti-immigrant”. What kind of stupid statement is that? You are right that I am anti-abortion when it’s used as birth control or an excuse for shiftless layabouts to evade their parental responsibilities by killing their baby. I realize there are situations that occur where abortion may be necessary where you are for killing babies just for shits and giggles. Once again MY FIRST WIFE WAS A JEW, MYSTEP GRANDFATHER WAS A JEW, ARABBI ALONG WITH MY MINISTER PRESIDED AT MY WEDDING AND I AM A SUPPORTER OF ISRAEL WHICH YOU ARE NOT! If you call that anti-Semitic you are crazy.

    I am anti Islam because Islam believes in the destruction of America, Christianity and Judaism. They also would cut your atheist balls off Elwood. Just as I’m a commie hater for the same reasons. Your projection is really getting out of hand.

    I don’t know what you mean by “unilateralism” you aren’t clear on that but I am not anti-scientism (is that a word?) you are. Just because I disagree on most of your pseudo scientific pontifications doesn’t make me anti science, just anti BAD SCIENCE and you are the grand poopah of bad science.

    Please don’t tell me or us how we view Trump. We are Christians and once again unlike you Satanist atheists we don’t worship anything but God. You are the people who banish anyone not in total conformity to your narrative, not us. How many times just in the last year were “liberals” chastised and ostracized and banished from Leftist Media for straying off the narrative reservation?

    IT’s time to start calling me names, Elwood. You lost this argument.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      We find it interesting that Kye and foamwiz repeatedly declare themselves victors in their arguments. LOL. Their “leader” trump does the same thing.

      Both are scientifically ignorant, denying climate science, denying epidemiology, denying virology, all while fully accepting conspiracy tales based on fake science.
