Warren retires to the reservation

Super Tuesday took out Elizabeth Warren too.
Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts plans to drop out of the presidential race on Thursday and will inform her staff of her plans later this morning, according to a person close to her, ending a run defined by an avalanche of policy plans that aimed to pull the Democratic Party to the left and appealed to enough voters to make her briefly a front-runner last fall, but that proved unable to translate excitement from elite progressives into backing from the party’s more working-class and diverse base.
Creepy Joe vs Socialist Jew. It's not a contest, since the black vote is much more important in the Democratic primary than it is in the general election. That means Creepy Joe wins the right to be ritually offered up to the god-emperor.

Enjoy the Trumpslide.

I am a little disappointing. I thought she would be the vice presidential candidate. I wonder who they have in mind? The big deal would seem to be that an open socialist at the head of the ticket might give Trump a Republican majority in the House. So, no Sanders. They get the safely corrupt Creepy Joe.

Blogger Balkan Yankee March 05, 2020 10:59 AM  

But which ritual sacrifice will Warren endorse: Biden for the money? Or Bernie for reasons of ideological consistency?

Blogger swiftfoxmark2 March 05, 2020 11:06 AM  

I wonder what concessions the losers got behind the scenes to drop out of the race and endorse Creepy Joe?

Because I would totally do that if it meant being able to retire early.

Of course it won't in reality.

It looks like Bloomberg may have taken his remaining commercial spots and shifted them to Bidden. Same general vein, with Obama praising the subject. Bidden one of the best VPs was all the commentary I needed from one the best presidents.

As far as I can tell, it is all about the gamma fantasy movie plot. Mayor Pete the small town surprise, Bloomberg the Batman vs Lex Luthor rich dude showdown, Warren the grrlpowah success (take 2).

Only the gammas writing the election plot would think those contrived stories would work in real life. People can tell the characters don't match the plot and don't like it.

So we are left with the socialist loon who honestly came by his philosophy and beliefs. Or the bumbling uncle that acts just like all the corrupt local politicians around the country - familiar, likable and mostly keeps the trains running on time.

Such a shock that people can differentiate between a real image, a groomed public image and pure theatrical fakery.

It's not so much about being Jewish or Socialist as it is about the fact that he wants Americans to be like someone else like Danish or Cubans. He does not understand or respect the culture of the country he is trying to represent.
Politics (and economics) is downstream from culture. All changes have to take place within the cultural framework. If there is something wrong about the culture ( and there is a lot wrong about American culture in the present day) then first work towards changing it. It will take decades. Then try to bring about political change.
He wants drastic changes done too quickly. Not happening.

How selfish and narcissistic can rich liberals be than Bloomberg. At least wasting his billions on a system of shell non-profits like all his neverending and wacky gun control astroturfed cults — Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America, Everytown For Gun Safety, and Students Demand Action For Gun Sense in America — or all of his Bloomberg Philanthropies affiliated causes like his environmental shell nonprofits, or his health shell nonprofits serve to at least keep poor leftists in paying jobs.

Blogger Ominous Cowherd March 05, 2020 9:24 PM  

Biden is running as an open Leftist in the Leftist party. That means cover from the media, and he has to appeal only to Leftists. Even a dementia patient can do that.

Little Jebby! was running as a faux-Right candidate of the faux-Right party. That means attacks from the media, and he had to appeal to Rightists without scaring the Leftist party leaders: he had to be a cuckservative's cuckservative. He was only ever intended to lose to Crooked Hillary anyway.

They might have been able to drag him to victory in the primaries and a gentlemanly defeat in the general if Trump hadn't upset everyone's apple carts.

" why has Biden succeeded when Jeb failed? "


Because Republican voters were saying, frequently: "We do NOT want third Bush under ANY circumstances" as early as 2014 -- months before ¡Jeb! even floated the idea of entering the primaries or announced a single fundraiser.

On the other hand, with Biden, there was no pre-existing wall of resistance. Biden's history of idiocy, plagiarism and gaffes didn't bother the typically low-information voters ("Wait, you're telling me Buttigig is gay???"), because they've never paid enough attention to be aware of it in the past anyways.

Now, Biden's never-great-and-now-rapidly-failing mental faculties are in the spotlight, and.. they still don't care.

Blogger Akulkis March 06, 2020 12:52 AM  

"

Even without Trump, ¡Jeb! never would have lasted more than a couple primaries.
1. Daddy Bush betrayed the public after "No New Taxes!"
2. Brother Bush betrayed Republicans by pushing HUGE expansions of the welfare state, PATRIOT Act (renamed, barely modified version of a domestic spying bill which Clinton and the Democratic Party leadership couldn't get out of committee in the late 1990s), and pretty much everything else associated with the word "Cuckservative" plus HUGE questions about whether Bush's administration was somehow involved with the 911 attacks + finding out that those making a case for Iraq undertaking domestic manufacture of WMDs were all on the Mossad payroll, and either WMD inspector Scott Ritter was right that there were none, or waiting 3 months to start the invasion, while round the clock convoys from various sites under suspicion did round-trip traffic to Syria removed any chance of producing the evidence...

The Republican voting base was, and remains, in absolutely no mood to put another Bush into the Whitehouse -- ever. And the Democrats hate them even more than mainstream Republicans do -- they would sooner vote for a two-headed puppy with Down's Syndrome.

The ideological mystification of this Democratic primaries that Elizabeth Warren is so much more of an unmitigated neoliberal ideologue than Biden. And corporate media tool were paid to say she was Bernie-lite, to promote her as such.

Warren and Biden and rest of the elite Democrats are globalist neoliberal working for Bloomberg.
Bloomberg's cameo in the race was a surgical strike to get his 'staff' to fall in line behind the interests of the elite globo-oligarchy.
Beating populist socialist-nationalist Bernie was always the objective. It was a paltry investment for a cosmopolitan multibillionaire to retain control of the Party.

The meaningful split in the Left coalition isn't Warren vs Bernie. It's those who will play submissive Democratic Party loyalists irrespective of outcome vs those who won't. The Democratic elites aren't weak, their ideology is hegemonic across big media, academia and corporate America.
Bloomberg wasn't humiliated, he reasserted his dominant authority.

Blogger Katechon March 06, 2020 7:17 AM  

> Biden is running as an open Leftist in the Leftist party.
He's running as a friendly old guy. Uncle joe. But poor old uncle joe has dementia now, low energy! Trump will obliterate him.

Trump has demonstrated how to build support speaking to the emotional truths that people feel about candidates. Majority of voters like Biden on a personal level. Bernie's campaign contradicts public sentiment when they make it personal against him.

Biden supports globalist neoliberalism. He's has been consistent about 3 things his whole career:
>neoliberal trade policies
>draconian punishment at home
>interventionist wars abroad
All unpopular with voters of any stripe. They make America worse. They make the world worse. Trump will campaign against all three.

But Biden's pro-America cultural aesthetic disguises it. Bernie rejects neolib progressivism politically, but it doesn't come across aesthetically. That's why old boomers don't like him. If Bernie wants to win he needs to shed the progressive cultural aesthetic of BLM & AOC. He needs to read as a safe strong choice who will make peoples lives more (economically) secure than Biden.

Bernie should sell himself as the guy who stands for American workers, American families, and America. Multinational corporations are destroying all three and taking the profit offshore. It’s no accident college kids are programmed to scream nazbol at anyone suggesting this.

Bernie is a nationalist socialist. That's why big media shills accuse him in the same breath of being a communist and a nazi.

Nationalism, not globalism, wins elections.
National Socialism of Bernie. Without racism. Being a Jew, he could fulfill this role.

What Akulkis said, but also that moderate Republicans are perceived as helping the Democrat agenda by the Republican base, whereas there isn't really that issue with moderate Democrats with the Democrat base. Sure, some Bernie-bros might say that Biden or Hillary are more Republican, but there isn't really any fundamental difference between them and Sanders at all.

There was between Trump and Jeb, however, and the Republican base went with Trump, and were disinclined to support Jeb under any circumstances, even though they might have had pre-Obama.

The Right was getting totally fed up with the Fake Right GOP by 2008, and McCain's open hatred of the Right pretty well cemented it. The Fake Right GOP running Mittens four years later was just another slap in the face for Americans. It wasn't just that Little Jebby! was such a loser, it wasn't just that he was a total cuck, it wasn't even that he was openly anti-American, campaigning in Spanish. It was that the Right was being chased off the GOP plantation. No Bush could ever have won, could ever win again, but neither could any of the other GOP scum.

As a foreigner, I wonder: why has Biden succeeded when Jeb failed?
Jeb failed because he was a towering lummox unfortunately married to a bitesized Latina who had to peer up at the sky to see Bloomberg.

You may not care for Trump but he's unquestionably given this country the most glorious First Lady in American history. Jeb, on the other hand, married the family maid; and the sight of the two of them walking down the tarmac together, to or from Air Force One, would have convulsed foreign leaders and dignitaries from Albania to Zaire into biting their lips until they were aboard, out of earshot, and it was now safe to laugh.

PS: Biden didn't "succeed"; he's the prototype of the Useful Idiot - a corrupt Candide, in keeping with our degraded age - and he'll be shown the door by or before the convention in July.
