Former VP Joe Biden Launches New Initiative That Points to Something Big on The Horizon

Joe Biden

Former Vice President Joe Biden has launched a new initiative, and from the looks of things, it certainly appears the man is gearing up for a potential presidential run in 2020.

Things don’t really look all that good for someone who isn’t a “fresh face” according to polling information, but that doesn’t appear to be stopping Crazy Uncle Joe in the slightest.

A new initiative launched by the Biden Foundation has stirred up more conjecture that “Crazy Joe” believes he’s got what it takes to take down Trump. On Tuesday, Biden announced his new “As You Are” campaign, which promotes acceptance for LGBTQ youth.

“Stories have power,” the campaign’s website explains. “In the past decade, we’ve seen storytelling drive nationwide progress for LGBTQ equality. But far too many LGBTQ people—especially those under 25—still face rejection from the people closest to them. So we’re inviting you to help us change that. Share your story with us. Let’s work together to make the world better for LGBTQ young people. No matter your background, you deserve to be safe and affirmed #AsYouAre.”

“I’m so proud to announce the Biden Foundation has launched this campaign,” Biden said in a news release. “We’ll use our resources to highlight the harms of family rejection — and lift up research, best practices, and personal stories to powerfully show the significant value of family acceptance.” In a tweet, Biden said “LGBTQ young people should never have to face rejection from those who love them.”

Let’s be brutally honest for a moment here. If the Democratic Party were to once again influence its choice of candidate to run against Donald Trump in 2020 and they were to pick Joe Biden, it would be assured self-destruction. They might as well just hand Trump the presidency.

Democratic voters have made it clear they want fresh blood that is actually dedicated to the worldview they propose. Choosing someone as establishment as Biden would be a bad, bad move.

On top of that, Trump has already indicated Biden would be his dream opponent.

“Look, Joe Biden ran three times. He never got more than 1% and President Obama took him out of the garbage heap — and everybody was shocked that he did,” Trump told CBS Evening News in July. “I’d love to have it be Biden.”

Guess we’ll just have to wait and see whether or not Biden actually takes the plunge. Boy that would make for an interesting election year, wouldn’t it?

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
