New Report Says Joe Biden Is Going To Stay ‘In Hiding’ As Long As Possible

Published

on

Current Democratic presumptive nominee Joe Biden hasn’t been out of his basement bunker in a very long time, and if we’re to believe the new reports circulating on the Internet, that doesn’t seem likely to change any time soon.

This, of course, has caused many to speculate as to the reason why he’s remained so hidden from the public during a presidential campaign, though his people have used the coronavirus pandemic as the main excuse for this particular strategy.

However, Biden hasn’t been conducting very many interviews during this time either, which can easily be done from his home. Much of this is probably due to the fact that we’ve witnessed his mental decline over the last year or so, leading to speculation he has dementia.

Regardless, it seems he’s not coming out of his hiding place.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee is gearing up to step into the spotlight when he announces his vice presidential pick and accepts the party’s nomination at the Democratic National Convention this month. But don’t expect a dramatic shift from Biden away from what Republicans tease is his “basement bunker” strategy to that of a news-cycle warrior in the months before Election Day.

When the coronavirus pandemic first shut down normal life in March, political observers immediately wondered how Biden would be able to campaign effectively while cooped up in his basement. A few months later, after he secured a new in-home studio, started a steady stream of digital events, and rose in the polls, Democrats warmed to his low-key campaign while letting President Trump deal with negative press. Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said in June that Biden is “fine in the basement.”

“I don’t think that we need to be counterprogramming,” Kate Bedingfield, one of Biden’s deputy campaign managers, told reporters this week about the campaign’s plans on how to handle Trump responding to and driving news cycles.

“They’re doing the right thing by just sticking to their plan, rolling out their positions, and ignoring a lot of the noise that’s going on out there right now,” Democratic strategist Jim Manley told the Washington Examiner. “I don’t think they should be listening to the nervous Nellies out there and start chasing Trump all around.”

Reporters in the media aren’t quite seeing things the same way as the Biden campaign. Many folks in the industry have expressed frustration that he’s not holding more interviews and isn’t facing hard questions about his policies.

President Trump recently held an interview with Fox News anchor Chris Wallace and was thoroughly grilled on both sides, yet managed to come out completely unscathed, no doubt bolstering the confidence of his supporters in his positions and policy platform. Biden is hurting himself by not participating in these sort of interviews.

Then again, maybe the campaign recognizes that Biden’s mental state is indeed highly questionable and they are attempting to save face by keeping him out of the spotlight as much as possible. Just last week Biden made a fool of himself by saying that all African-Americans are alike and giving a rather bizarre answer when asked about his taking cognitive tests.

How much his absence from the public will help or hurt is campaign will be determined in November.

Social Media Giant Permanently Banishes Pro-Life News Outlet

So much for free speech.

Our nation appears destined to fall into the clutches of a technological oligarchy, headed by the likes of Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg, and there is very little that can be done about it. These two men, who run Twitter and Facebook, respectively, have been ruling their public forums with an iron fist, hiding behind the concept that their private status is a workaround for the First Amendment.  Their gargantuan reach and influence has made it possible for them to act with impunity, steering the narrative on any number of subjects, from Donald Trump to the wonder of maternity. The latest affront to free speech comes to us from Facebook, where a pro-life news organization has been completely banished. Facebook permanently banned LifeSiteNews, a popular pro-life news outlet, for publishing “false information about COVID-19 that could contribute to physical harm.” As justification for unpublishing LifeSiteNews, Facebook cited an article posted on April 10, 2021, titled “COVID vaccines can be deadly for some.” Facebook said they erase Facebook pages that publish “vaccine discouraging information on the platform.” The site’s staff was livid. “This all comes down to another case of Big Tech silencing free speech on their platform,” said LifeSiteNews Marketing Director Rebekah Roberts. “Facebook has been silencing any voice that goes against their beliefs and agenda,” Roberts said. “Our LifeSiteNews Facebook page has been removed simply because we have shared reports of doctors, nurses, expert researchers, and even the former Pfizer VP speaking out against the COVID shots.” This is just the latest in a long line of Orwellian moves by these social media mavens, and may in fact be just another harbinger of something far more sinister to come.

CDC Readies Cruises, Complete with Human Guinea Pigs

Fingers crossed!

As the world prepares for its grand reopening, there are a number of high value industries that are eagerly awaiting permission from medical authorities to resume operations. First and foremost, there are the service industries:  Places like restaurants, bars, music venues, and sports arenas whose entire livelihood depends on whether or not people are being allowed to gather in public.  While many of these venues are now beginning to ramp up their capacity, there are issues bringing some of these workers back into the fold thanks to the enhanced unemployment benefits provided by the federal government. And then there’s the tourism industry, whose regulatory structure is far more susceptible to interference by government agencies. Now, after over a year of stagnation, it appears as though at least one facet of this wide-ranging corporate amalgam will be given a chance to sail on. Cruise lines can soon begin trial voyages in U.S. waters with volunteer passengers helping test whether the ships can sail safely during a pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gave ship operators final technical guidelines Wednesday for the trial runs. The CDC action is a step toward resuming cruises in U.S. waters, possibly by July, for the first time since March 2020. A spokeswoman for the cruise industry’s trade group said the group was reviewing the CDC instructions. So, how will this work? Each practice cruise — they’ll run two to seven days — must have enough passengers to meet at least 10% of the ship’s capacity. Volunteers must be 18 or older and either fully vaccinated or free of medical conditions that would put them at high risk for severe COVID-19. The ship operator must tell passengers that they are simulating untested safety measures “and that sailing during a pandemic is an inherently risky activity,” the…
