How did this happen? Joe Biden finished an abysmal 5th in the New Hampshire and 4th in the Iowa caucuses of 2020, the two crucial earliest states to vote on presidential primary candidates. In late 2019 and early 2020, Biden's campaign was flirting with failure. Most analysts, even friendly ones, agreed it was on the verge of collapse.
So how did a sad two-time presidential election loser like 78-year-old Joe Biden, a rapidly aging white male in an era of über-wokeness, bane of #MeToo, manage to come back from such a huge hole early on?
Biden, in short, is a company man - just the kind of trusted ally that the DNC's donors could turn to in the face of a threatening Bernie Sanders ascendancy and an even more terrifying specter of a possible Trump re-election. Back in January of 2020, both seemed like probable scenarios.
So -- starting at the highest levels with former president Barack Obama orchestrating an emergency power consolidation among the establishment primary candidates -- they turned the gears of the political machinery as only a ruling class with full access to the levers of power can:
The revelations of Molly Ball via Time serve as prima facie evidence that the current government pressing its weight down on the middle and working class is illegitimate. Politicians at the highest levels are the handpicked puppets of the men behind the curtain.
Beyond illegitimate, Joseph Biden and the people who worked so diligently to thwart the democratic process in the 2020 election are criminal. They stole your birthright as an American citizen. This is not consensual governance; this is the Bad Touch.
No means no.
You live in occupied territory.
They beg for summary judgment and the guillotine.
