Biden’s new campaign ad.

But then there’s this video of Joe defending his crime bill.

Guess Joe has forgotten that he once vigorously defended why he wrote the crime bill in the first place? We have not forgotten the vile words you said about black people, Joe. I bet neither have they.

How could he possibly be more disingenuous and disgusting in his presentation. The whole congregation behind him in the photo op are of colour, but one. I'm calling foul.

He always makes me want to puke.

was regarding the image of Biden kneeling, but applies to Obama as well, even though I haven't watched him genuflect. They're both missing the genuine gene.

Yes it’s just beyond hypocritical for Biden to say what he does when we know the real truth.

I just turned the sound off on Obama’s video. It makes him look like a dweeb.

@snoopydawg I have gotten to the point that I cannot listen to Obama at all without becoming nauseated. How dare he poke his entitled head out of his $15 million dollar mansion and lecture us with his empty words coming from an empty soul.

the Empty Suit did to OWS? Y'all remember when he worked with mayors across the country to send cops into the peaceful camps in NYC and elsewhere where people were feeding the homeless and do 'kind things' to the people who were losing everything.

Or sending the national guard into Ferguson? Or that Black Lives Matter formed during the ES's tenure?

Or allowing private mercenaries to go into the Standing Rock protests and letting them release dawgs on Native Americans and other or pepper spraying them or spraying water on them when the temps were below freezing?

But people think history started with Trump only even though Obama has outdone him in so many categories. Yes Trump is a horrid person, but then so is Obama. I am just tired of centrists and others rewriting the history of the totally failed Obama presidency.

ETA this headline:

Those D.C. forces under Barr's command are concealing their identities and some Democrats are fuming

Another example of democrats getting their panties in a twist for something Trump's administration is doing while not mentioning that it also happened during Obama's.

George Bush the Lesser got another yippie for speaking up and now we see Mattis once again being a hero. Remember how people were told to be on notice to get in the streets if he got fired and especially if Mueller was. Gotta love the defense of people that had been lying to us for decades just because now they were on 'our side' against Trump.

Do I need to say it? Ok. It's the effing hypocrisy.

@Fishtroller 02

I excerpted a BAR article on how Obama first said that he was going to stop the flow of military equipment such as bayonets only to wait till people quit paying attention to what he was doing and then started giving it to them again. Now Biden is saying that he is going to nip that in the bud and a few congress critters on the 'left' are writing bills to stop it now. Guess no one saw the need to do that until now?

His latest speech was meet with lots of accolades and kudos cuz he is so charming and coherent isn't he? You know not like Trump.

It is the effing hypocrisy that gets my goat.

Anyway here is the link to the article with it in it.

Okay now let's talk about Biden's photo and his message that for some reason centrists can't see the problem with what he has said and done.

In France already for over a year, with all the blindings and maimings caused by Macron’s security forces …

The German establishment, Green, left, and center, and their mouthpieces have all held back on showing any solidarity with the Yellow Vests because that would involve calling out the very same neoliberal and globalist economic policies they share with Macron. Criticism would also undermine Macron’s personality cult, at a time when the German elites need to present Merkel and Macron as the tough savvy team that will pull a faltering EU’s burning chestnuts out of the fire.

it shows that I am here to talk about some issues. Just talk mind you...will be no action though. Isn't this a great looking photo-op? Just like Trump holding the Bible and Nancy "reading" the Bible.

@longtalldrink

People made fun of Trump holding one, but then it was okay to do her own bible stunt? BTW where is Bernie? I see him on Twit telling us what congress needs to do or should be doing, but other than that? Lots of other dems are twitting about things we can't change, but what else are they doing? She is talking about time. It's important and it's a commodity? WTF does that mean. And that it is time we make some change? Okay Nance, use the power that you have and make some damn changes. We know that you won't because you will not do anything listed here. Read this:

10 Things Dems Could Do Right Now -- If They Actually Wanted To Stop Trump’s Power Grab

The opposition party has significant power to halt the president’s authoritarian takeover -- if they don’t use that power right now, they are complicit.

Democrats would have you believe they are victims and have no power in this situation -- which is, in a word, horseshit. And not just run-of-the-mill horseshit we’ve all gotten used to -- this is especially dangerous horseshit, because we need them to actually use the power they currently have to oppose what’s going on. Right now.

They do have real power. The party controls one chamber of Congress that Trump needs to finance his power grab. They also fully control 15 state legislatures and have partial control of another 13 state legislatures. And they control nearly half the nation’s governorships, and most major cities’ mayoralties -- the former of which has authority over the national guard, and the latter of which run the police forces that are committing acts of violence in our streets.

That’s a lot of power to actually do something right now.

So...exactly what can they do? Here are ten kinds of things -- and many of them can be done unilaterally by House Democrats, by states and by cities, and they can be done immediately, not at some unspecified time in the distant future:

9. Repeal and block anti-protester laws, and pass state protections.

A recent PEN America report shows that 15 states have passed anti-protester laws and “nearly a third of all states have implemented new regulations on protest-related activity in the past five years.” Democrats in legislatures and governorships can work to repeal these laws, and block similar new laws. They can also be proactive by using their majorities in blue states like New York to pass packages of much-needed reforms designed to bring accountability to local police departments.

@snoopydawg

in the video he says that it is the rich people pushed by the rich most powerful people in America. Good grief, Saagar you can't honestly think that people are doing this for the rich in America that have robbed them of so much? I can't wait for him to look back at what he said during this time and do a face palm. Lots of wingers say that Soros is paying people to go out and risk life and limb for some $$$$$. Our education system has long failed us.

Hey Saagar, who were behind the wingers with their guns at the protests to open the country up? Now that might have had some people pushing for it, but most people are just fed up.

To me it’s telling that so much outrage is sent (Rightfully) towards Trump using a burnt out church and a bible as props but I don’t even thing the media covered that Biden suggest cops shoot people in the legs in a black church. To me, that’s at least as outrageous, if not more so.

@Dr. John Carpenter

who are getting shot with 'less lethal' weapons. I posted a photo of a woman who had gotten shot at least 3 times and I saw a photo of one last night where the person had 10 huge welts and bruises all over her back. Less lethal? Yeah except for when they hit you in the head like above or the woman that got shot between her eyes and is in a medically induced coma and might lose her eye. How many videos have you seen where cops are pointing their weapons at people's heads and faces? That is supposed to be 'against the law' and yet we have seen it done over and over...

And the media should have asked Joe why cops should be shooting people at all even if it is just their legs? They might have if they didn't have an agenda to cover up the news instead of covering up.
