Weekend at Biden's

Forget conspiracy theories, Q, and stolen elections. Ignore the Ides of March. Simply apply Ockham's Razor to the so-called Biden "presidency":

No news conference. No Oval Office address. No primetime speech to a joint session of Congress.

President Joe Biden is the first executive in four decades to reach this point in his term without holding a formal question and answer session. It reflects a White House media strategy meant both to reserve major media set-pieces for the celebration of a legislative victory and to limit unforced errors from a historically gaffe-prone politician.

Biden has opted to take questions about as often as most of his recent predecessors, but he tends to field just one or two informal inquiries at a time, usually in a hurried setting at the end of an event.

In a sharp contrast with the previous administration, the White House is exerting extreme message discipline, empowering staff to speak but doing so with caution. Recalling both Biden’s largely leak-free campaign and the buttoned-up Obama administration, the new White House team has carefully managed the president’s appearances, trying to lower the temperature from Donald Trump’s Washington and to save a big media moment to mark what could soon be a signature accomplishment: passage of the COVID-19 bill.

Also, not the President. This is not a "White House media strategy". It's a "Weekend at Biden's" strategy.

"trying to lower the temperature"

Yeah, no, this is putting lipsitck on a dead pig. If Biden was hale and hearty they'd want to plaster him all over everything just to reinforce the message that he's president and we've got to deal with it. Him being so feeble, especially right at the start, is actually a huge political liability.

As for his gaffes, Obama and Clinton weren't any less gaffe-prone than Bush, they just didn't have a media eager to pounce on their every verbal misstep and put it on a loop. Nothing helps more with gaffes than a compliant and eager-to-please media class.

The presidency must mean something since Jill Biden is pulling this off till they practically have to strap cadaver man to the chair. I don't really pay attention to DC, but bigcountryexpat summed it well enough for me, he even noted the media wing of the State is not giving Jill Biden the up the dress breezes for her stunning beauty and brains shtick they gave Big Mike.

More so than the corpse of Biden, anyway.

On the one hand the Uniparty has become much more open in its unity against us. Even normies can see it now. On the other hand, I think we are seeing powerful factions contending between themselves, united only because Americans are an existential threat to them all. The several Old White People factions are fighting viciously among themselves, and fighting a rear-guard action against the several Factions of Color they imported. The FoC were supposed to replace Americans, not the OWP!

The future won't look much like the past - we've crossed a threshold, and Leviathan is letting the tattered, rotting skin-suit of the old Republic slip off.

Blogger [Redacted] March 06, 2021 9:11 AM  

From Douglas Adam's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:

"The President in particular is very much a figurehead — he wields no real power whatsoever. He is apparently chosen by the government, but the qualities he is required to display are not those of leadership but those of finely judged outrage. For this reason the President is always a controversial choice, always an infuriating but fascinating character. His job is not to wield power but to draw attention away from it. On those criteria Zaphod Beeblebrox is one of the most successful Presidents the Galaxy has ever had — he has already spent two of his ten presidential years in prison for fraud."

Now that voting doesn't matter, and it is obvious to everyone that we entered the realm of fake and gay illusions, things are getting entertaining and dangerous. For instance, the White House already accidently fed undercooked meat, dog food, and metal shavings to the DC National Guard and put a few in the hospital.

@20 "the White House already accidentally fed undercooked meat, dog food, and metal shavings to the DC National Guard and put a few in the hospital."

You left off the air-quotes around "accidentally."

And NOT the White House -- it's Pe-lousy and her team of liars!! The White House has no real say in the "security of the Capitol: have you not read the six-page letter to Pelosi written by the resigned (forced out) Chief of the Capitol Police Sund? Both Sergeants at Arms, one each from the Senate and the House have also resigned. Sund tried for literally HOURS to get the Nat Guard both prepared for a call-in beforehand, and PROVIDED during the invasion.

p.s., Consider not using our enemies' malign rhetoric: it was neither a riot nor an insurrection. It was a political invasion. And if you feel like piling it on: NEVER let our enemies get away with claiming four "deaths" during it. Obviously Ashli was flat-our murdered by that Capitol police -- or whatever he was: no confirmation so far. The coroner has said Sicknick did NOT have an abrasions or bruises, the fire extinguisher thing was a total lie. His family said he himself told them a couple h ours after he got back to the station that, other than being pepper sprayed, he was fine.

And three people (Trump supporters) died after suffering from "medical emergencies." (Heart attack, stroke, and ... uncertain, possibly trampled to death.)
Plus two Capitol police officers reportedly died by suicide the day after the insurrection.

For clear details-so-far, one-month removed from the fog of war:

{Two commenters there:}
This is an interesting piece on the officer's death:
https://www.revolver.news/2021/02/maga-blood-libel-why-are-they-hiding-the-medical-report/

I read that. This line is pretty good:
They've silently removed the "by," and added a "while" and a "with." Then reframed the entire clause in the passive tense so 90% of readers conflate what happened and move on.
But "Injured while physically engaging" is like "dying with Covid." Even if you died in a motorcycle crash, they count it. It's a trick.

As the pithy, old maxim goes, possession is 9/10 the law. Since Biden is in possession of The White House, he is POTUS-end of story. Like it or not, Biden was installed, and Trump was removed. What's more, Trump's not coming back.

So stop reading so much in to why Biden hasn't used Air Force One, hasn't given a presser, etc.. It's not because he isn't POTUS; it's because HE CAN'T! Given his state of decline, he simply cannot do these things. There's no grand Q plot going on or anything like that; Biden simply can't do the things a fit POTUS can normally do. Whether we like it or not, Biden is POTUS, and he will be POTUS until January 20, 2025 or when the Dems 25A him.

What I expect is this. Biden will remain putative POTUS until January, 2023. At that point, Biden will either resign or he'll be removed via the 25A. Kamala Harris will then take over as POTUS. She can't do so any sooner, because the 22A limits her to a maximum of 10 years. She'll have the last half of Biden's term, which will be followed by her 2024 and 2028 runs for POTUS. SO! The Dems have to prop up Creepy Joe for another 22 months to pull this off.

The common wisdom (or "open secret") is that D.C. runs on alcohol and amphetamines, which is a combination that tends to induce grandiosity leavened with paranoia.

And the habit is normative in competitive colleges, so it carries through into their first jobs, and then becomes as much the culture of their professions as it was of their schools.

Undercooked meat and metal shavings winding up in food happen to every large military supply situation. It is 100% legit, but whether it was intentional or not is impossible to discern.

However, when there were 25,000 guardsmen in the capitol, 17,000 meals were being served 3 times a day for almost a month. THAT was reality. Again, it was likely just a supply screwup.

And the dog food thing? Seems unlikely but is far from impossible... supply screwups when dealing with tens of thousands of people are inevitable.

Blogger Ariadne Umbrella March 06, 2021 4:34 PM  

I thought Jill Biden was a regular side piece arm candy politician's wife. Then a week or so ago I started seeing articles and puff pieces on social media sites comparing Jill and Melania. They favored Jill as prettier, smarter, nicer, etc, so on and so forth. I'm serious. Supposed regular people are putting up photos of Jill Biden in her twenties against Melania in her twenties, and saying with a straight face that Jill Biden is not only prettier, but she's smarter, and she used her smarts better- to be a teacher- and is just a nicer person, gosh darn it, because she teaches at a community college.

One post is a weirdo. I'm still trying to not understand the very middle-aged, very blonde, white women from flyover states that got Michelle Obama haircuts when Obama was elected. This wasn't one person, this was a lot of people. Or one very productive pod of shills.

Melania: six languages, no hint of scandal, ever, in her career- Vogue covers- not one bad thing said about her, ever, until DJT aims for the presidency. These are nasty, unstable people and they never said anything bad about her.

Then Trump, who only dates models, so he's immune to their charms if they are not good people, is fascinated enough by her to marry her, and then pretty much keep her to himself and give her anything she wants. What I get out of this is that she is a rare, extraordinary jewel of a human being.

DJT personally thanked anyone who was decent to her while she did modelling jobs, and tried to help their businesses with publicity. I've read about it from different business owners. He values Melania. Since Trump can read giant spreadsheets, he can calculate value.
