    Hersh presented a scenario for replacing Biden in the presidential election, 06.21.2024.

    Hersh: Biden will be replaced if he fails at the debate with Trump.

    US President Joe Biden's poor performance in the upcoming televised debate with his Republican rival Donald Trump could lead to the choice of a new Democratic presidential candidate. American journalist Seymour Hersh reported this on June 21 in a blog on Substack, citing sources.

    According to them, in the extreme case, if Biden's performance is very poor, the current American leader and his advisers will be asked to agree to him withdrawing the nomination at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago in August and declaring the process open to other candidates.

    Biden could be replaced in this case by California Governor Gavin Newsom or Illinois Governor Jay Robert Pritzker, Hersh indicated. It is noted that in case of failure at the debate, the head of the White House will be able to show the best result in the second round, which will take place on September 10.

    On June 27, Biden and Trump will hold a 90-minute debate in Atlanta, Georgia, to which they will not be able to bring prepared materials. Two commercials will be shown at the debate, and campaign staff will not be able to interact with their candidates.

    Earlier, on June 19, media reported that senior members of the Democratic Party doubt Biden's victory in the upcoming elections due to his approach to the election campaign. One of the sources called the political situation around the American leader frightening.

    Prior to this, on June 16, former American leader Barack Obama was forced to remove Biden from the stage after his speech at a fundraising event for the incumbent head of state's election campaign in Los Angeles. The White House said Biden “did not freeze on stage, but simply greeted the audience . ” On the same day, American journalist Tucker Carlson said that Biden was dying in front of the whole world in real time.

    The next, 60th presidential election in the United States is scheduled for November 5, 2024. Party congresses should be held in August-September, at which one candidate from each party will be officially approved. The final stage will be the November vote.

    There is no fecking way that Dementia Joe could handle a 90 minute debate. There must be some dirty tricks planned. Maybe they
    will try to disable Trump with a localized chemical agent or even microwaves. Yes, this is very plausible and not tin foil hat inanity.
    What is inane is having a debate with Dementia Joe. I bet the moderators will be doing their job for the Biden team.

    College football is now a business without a business plan and the vultures are circling. How this all falls apart and private equity is still a question in this article.  Fans?

    kvs: does this sort of thing occur in Canada? Why is it that college sports are big in America but not around the world?

    What do others on this forum feel about the extremist element of capitalism?

    The US is special in its college sports business. Canada has "varsity" teams but they are not big and corporate money is not swirling around them
    like in the US. Canada is similar to America, but different.

    He did a deal and folded like a sheet of paper at an origami competition.

    It will be amusing when the mainstream media interviews him... all these reporters who supported his persecution, now claiming he is one of them and he had rights to do what he did...

    Talk about flip flopping...

    He was tortured into submission. He was detained illegally in nasty jails in essentially solitary confinement without any trial. It does not matter
    that some country demanded his extradition. That is not an actual criminal case before a court of law. So Assange should have been free and
    not even on bail.

    Gonzalo Lira was murdered by prison in Ukraine.

    Shall we start a rumour that he is going to write a book and watch the US State department shit itself.

    He would have to go into exile in Russia to be able to do that because you can bet part of the deal is limiting what he can do and say about anything.

    Media: Some Democrats have begun discussing replacing Biden in the elections, 06.28.2024.

    Politico: US Democrats are actively looking for a replacement for Biden after the debate.

    MOSCOW, June 28 – RIA Novosti. Representatives of the US Democratic Party, after the unsuccessful election debates for President Joe Biden, began to discuss replacing his candidacy, writes Politico.

    "Democrats are so panicked by President Joe Biden's poor debate performance that some are actively discussing what was once unspeakable: replacing him," the publication says.

    The first debate between Biden and Trump took place on Friday night. CNN, citing its sources, reported that the US Democratic Party was in a panic after Biden's speech. The US presidential election will be held on November 5.

    According to the publication, an adviser to one of the possible Democratic presidential candidates noted that he had received several messages “about a disaster” from key donors. They insist that the party must somehow resolve this issue. At the same time, the adviser admitted that little can be done unless Biden himself decides to refuse to participate in the election.

    Other strategists close to the three potential candidates said they were bombarded with text messages during the debate. One of them noted that he has received requests to nominate the candidate he represents as an alternative to Biden. The name of this politician is not mentioned.

    According to Politico, one of the major donors and a Biden supporter said that it is time for the US president to end his campaign. The unnamed donor called Biden's speech "the worst ever" and said it was so "bad that no one will pay attention to Trump's lies."

    "Biden should drop out (of the election race. - Ed.). There is no doubt about it," his text message reads.

    The Democratic National Convention will take place in August, at which Biden will be nominated as the presidential candidate. In theory, a political association could change course and propose another person.

    Journalist Seymour Hersh said that the current president could be replaced in the election race if he loses the first debate to Trump.

    During his speech, Biden stuttered, misspoke, and at the end was unable to leave the stage without his wife's help.

    Biden confirms Alzheimer's victory, by Gleb Kuznetsov (political scientist) for VZGLYAD. 06.28.2024.

    I would be wary of saying that Biden will be replaced. They will adjust the strategy of public representation. And then - we'll see. If he stops "hanging out" in public and starts doing obscenities - one thing, if not - another.

    The debates that everyone is discussing with gusto are not about politics at all. It's about medicine.

    What you need to understand.

    Alzheimer's syndrome, a vivid picture of the transition from the early stage to the moderate stage of which Grandpa Joe shows us, is a long disease. He confidently showed "pre-dementia" during the 2020 election campaign. And almost everyone knew about it, both in his team, and in his family, and in the party, and in the US leadership, and generally everywhere where it was interesting.

    It is obvious that all possible resources, both current and planned, were spent on Biden’s treatment. If there is “something” in the innovative method, it could not go unused. (At the same time, Biden is simply forced to lead an active social life, to engage in tasks beyond his declining cognitive abilities – and this is what is traditionally considered an effective way to slow the progression of the disease).

    Nothing from the arsenal of traditional means (wide communications, cognitive training, diet) or registered drugs or candidate innovative schemes helped. Biden confidently, inevitably and at a good speed goes down the stairs. The stages of enlightenment change with the stages of darkening, the "darkness" is thicker, enlightenment is less frequent.

    The encirclement strategy is clear:

    – create maximum comfort of communication for the patient himself (repeating after him even his absurd actions, as on Omaha Beach, maximally slowing down movements during meetings and events with him - the movements of all participants in public meetings with Biden look like group exercises in underwater gymnastics in a nursing home );

    - to bring him to the maximum form for important events with medication. In March, during the address to Congress, it worked out, now it doesn't. Understanding the importance of debates - a good support for the thesis about the fundamental ineffectiveness of therapy. On March 8, during the report "On the state of affairs in the country", he simply turned out to be in good shape in the logic of the disease, and not thanks to the treatment. Now, despite intensive preparation, it didn't work out to bring him "to the light".

    This does not mean that he cannot be elected president. Dementia is a long-term disease. The question is when its progress will become impossible to hide or interpret as the evil machinations of enemies. Apraxia (motor disorders) has been present for a long time, he clearly showed aphasia (problems with speech) yesterday. Let us add an indicative symptom - “episodic memory”: vivid memories (often false in whole or in part) of a long-past episode, extremely insignificant and not related to the current contexts of communication. (This is all “I’ve known Putin for 45 years”, “I grew up in the Italian community and went to this church” and so on). You can live with this set and even “work” for years. Especially if the environment is loyal and supports the “illusion of normalcy” as best it can. What is and what will be.

    So I would be careful about saying that Biden will be replaced. They will adjust the strategy of public representation. And then – how it goes. If in public he stops “hanging out” and starts doing obscene things, that’s one thing; if not, that’s another thing.

    And, of course, it would be smart to conduct an audit of all the lies that our beloved Big Pharma has spun and registered in recent years as a cure for Alzheimer's. (This is one of the most expensive "megaprojects" in the pharmaceutical industry with a potential market capacity higher than that of Ozempic's weight loss drugs).

    In neurodegenerative diseases, by the way, there are more scandals and revocations of registration certificates and scientific articles that formed their basis than anywhere else. The drugs are becoming more expensive, and their effect is decreasing.

    But both parties in the US are more likely to replace their candidates with 40-year-old moderate, adequate politicians then the leaders of the pharmaceutical market and the FDA will admit that they were wrong and will re-evaluate or revise something.

    TLDR: Why is Trump so popular among lower class and lower middle class Americans? As far as I know, he isn't proposing any policies to actually alleviate their plight.

    Biden is being persuaded to sacrifice himself, by Pëtr Akopov for RiaNovosti. 06.29.2024.

    Donald Trump is a vicious liar and Joe Biden is a good man and president, but he needs to step down. This conclusion was made by the American establishment based on the results of the debate, in this case through the mouth of Thomas Friedman from The New York Times. The incumbent president is asked to voluntarily refuse to run for a second term, appealing to his sense of duty: “If he does this, Americans will cheer Joe Biden every day for doing what Donald Trump would never do—putting country before himself.”

    Simply put, Democrats are calling on Biden to sacrifice himself on the altar of the Fatherland - because otherwise he will lose and he will be ashamed in front of America . Which America? Well, of course, the freest country in the world, which leads the rest of humanity to light and happiness - after all, this is exactly how the globalists who govern it imagine the United States . So, in order for his country to continue to serve as a guiding light for the world, President Biden should step aside and let real America deal with Donald Trump on its own by fielding a strong candidate against him?

    But excuse me, who then stands for Trump - the fake America? Wrong America? All sorts of cattle and scum? Russians? Fascists or Jews? It is not clear, but he is confidently heading towards victory, and after the debate on June 27 this became clear to most Biden supporters. That is, the situation is emergency - and something needs to be done before it’s too late.

    It will be too late in mid-August, when the Democratic convention in Chicago endorses Biden as the presidential nominee. There is still more than a month and a half until August 19, and in that time the establishment can do something.

    What exactly? To persuade Biden to drop out and find a replacement for him, and the first is inextricably linked to the second. Biden is not withdrawing from the election because he is clinging to power or being stubborn, but because he does not see a worthy replacement. He does not see anyone who could stop Trump.

    Biden, like the majority of the American establishment, hates Trump - and his main task is to prevent Donald from returning to the White House. Biden was not going to be president - in 2016, he passed Clinton ahead and ran in 2020 only to throw Trump out of the Oval Office. And he succeeded - if not at the cost of falsifications, then at least the loss of confidence in the elections among a considerable part of voters. And now Trump enters the rematch in better shape than Biden - so what's Old Joe to do?

    Leave? He would love to do it - but who will replace him against Trump? The fact of the matter is that Biden has become the uncontested Democratic candidate - not because he can defeat Trump, but because everyone else is even weaker. And this is a sign not of Trump’s strength, but of the weakness and crisis not even of the Democratic Party, but of the entire American political elite.

    Because Trump is not part of it - and this is a huge part of his success. Ordinary Americans like his unsystematic, even anti-systemic nature - despite the fact that he behaves like a showman, they accept him as such. And systemic politicians, smooth and combed, cause rejection - they are seen as professional liars and inhabitants of the “Washington swamp”.

    And against this background, Joe Biden is truly the best thing the establishment has. He clearly has the most international experience among current American politicians, is smart, has a sense of humor and, in principle, has no repulsive personal qualities. But he is old - and his increasingly evident infirmity is becoming the second rock that is dragging down his election campaign. The first stone is Americans' dislike for the establishment, of which the professional politician Biden is a part. Nor is Trump the billionaire.

    Senile infirmity, of course, has not yet reached threatening proportions, but it will undoubtedly progress, and if Biden wins, he will remain in the White House until January 2029. And most importantly, the Republicans were able to make the president’s physical health a key issue in the election. And given the split in American society into two increasingly polarised camps, Biden’s health is becoming decisive for many undecided voters. Simply put, by demonstrating his infirmity in the debates, Biden has lost his last chance to win over the undecided voters — which means he is guaranteed to lose the election.

    It is clear that the establishment is in a panic: in a second term, Trump will be much more experienced and angrier, and his attempts to "drain the Washington swamp," that is, to cleanse the deep state, could be much more successful. Especially if the Democrats also lose control of the Senate and do not regain the House of Representatives, and for now everything is heading in that direction - after all, the drowning President Biden is dragging the Democratic Party down with him.

    But what can the establishment do under these conditions? It is already almost impossible to replace Biden with another candidate - to do this, you need to convince the president in the month and a half remaining before the congress that he will give way to a stronger candidate. Without this, Biden will not refuse the nomination - there is no need to create illusions about his state of mind, there is no insanity or dementia whatsoever.

    But the problem is that the Democrats simply do not have a strong candidate to replace Biden - and everyone understands this. The options being discussed—several popular governors (most notably Gavin Newsom of California and Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan ) and a couple of senators—do not hold up to the national level. Vice President Kamala Harris is frankly weak - and will lose to Trump even more than Biden. The dream of nominating the truly popular Michelle Obama is not coming true - the former first lady categorically refuses to be nominated.

    That is, the Democrats are in a dead end, in a stalemate, if not in a zugswang - when each subsequent move only worsens the situation. Nominating a new candidate instead of Biden will also give Trump an excellent reason to say that the Democratic Party has completely failed - since it is forced to refuse to support the current president.

    There is no way out of the impasse for the establishment — because this impasse did not just arise out of nowhere, but was the result of a long journey of the American elite. The only thing that can save the establishment — that is, stop Trump — is sudden death. And not only Trump (the murder option is still relevant), but also Biden — in this case, the nomination of a new candidate will become inevitable, and sympathy for the suddenly deceased head of state will add points to his successor and, perhaps, tip the scales in his favor.

    Let's see whether the "hand of God" (or what will be passed off as it) will show itself in the current American elections.

    TLDR: Why is Trump so popular among lower class and lower middle class Americans? As far as I know, he isn't proposing any policies to actually alleviate their plight.

    The competition is dogshit, plus I rather suspect a few people who were Bernie Sanders supporters were so pissed off with Clinton buying the candidacy and kicking Bern to the side of the road, it was a case of anyone but Hillary.

    Equally Trump has a few policies that many Americans like... for example dealing with illegal immigration and getting American soldiers back from forever wars that don't make America safer... in fact they tend to make Americans less safe.

    Plus it is the American system... their government consists of the President, the congress and the senate, so even if an independent president got elected it would be republicans and democrats in the congress and senate that dictated what they could or could not do and they will block affordable healthcare for all Americans if it was suggested by the other side. In other words they don't want to give their political rivals a win so they would rather Americans suffered or went into bankruptcy if they get ill.

    The democrats seem to be banking on the opposite... they think they can change horses now because they think anyone can beat Trump as long as they have a pulse and are breathing... and are not creepy joe biden... a good man my arse.

    'Doing Everything to Reelect Biden': Duped Hillary Clinton Spills Cringy Details to Prankster Duo, by Svetlana Ekimenko for Sputnikglobe.com. 07.03.2024.

    After conning British Foreign Secretary David Cameron into divulging that Ukraine won't be invited to join NATO at the alliance’s next summit, the Russian prankster duo of Vovan and Lexus have successfully duped Hillary Clinton.

    Despite her crushing defeat to Donald Trump in the 2016 US presidential elections, Hillary Clinton has adamantly refused to be put out to pasture or written off from big politics. Hence, her current bid to dabble in the ongoing proxy conflict in Ukraine.

    It comes as no surprise that the former US Secretary of State eagerly accepted the offer to speak with 'former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko'. Little did she realize that she was divulging her political game regarding the US and Ukraine to the well-known Russian prankster duo, Vovan (Vladimir Kuznetsov) and Lexus (Alexey Stolyarov).

    Clinton jumped right into the conversation, assuring ‘Poroshenko’ that US aid has been positioned to reach Ukraine “very quickly".

    At this point, her conversational partner lamented over another looming “threat”, in the face of presidential hopeful Donald Trump, who could “give us some problems” if elected, since he “hates Ukraine”, she piped up:

    “You're right. It is terrible. And I am doing everything I can to reelect President Biden. And I am very hopeful that that will be the outcome in November.”

    Clinton took a swipe at Trump, calling him a “very dangerous candidate,” and said he would be “bad for the United States, as well as for the rest of the world, including Ukraine.”
    But despite Joe Biden's disastrous first debate against his main opponent, Clinton is confident that Trump will lose.

    Moreover, she appeared to indicate that Biden’s path to a second term should be paved with the bodies of Ukrainian soldiers. She assured that Washington would be “giving you the means you need to support yourself to try to not only hold the line but engage in an offensive. And then obviously many of us in this country will do everything we can to reelect President Biden.”

    “The more that Ukraine could continue to demonstrate its resilience and its resolve and do what you’re doing on the battlefield, do what you’re doing in a very strong message to the rest of the world, […] go forward as best you can... the rest of us will do everything we can to continue supporting you, and to support President Biden,” reiterated Hillary Clinton.

    Hillary also wholeheartedly “supports” Ukraine’s NATO membership aspirations, saying that “We are working very hard to persuade the Germans and the Americans to move on this. I don't know what the final decision will be, but as you say, Rasmussen and Yermak, and others, are working very hard." This was a reference to former NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen and Zelensky's chief of staff Andriy Yermak, who have been spearheading a working group to gain support for Kiev's NATO bid across the alliance.

    Clinton emphasized that “everyone has a stake in making sure that you are successful in pushing the Russians out as far as you can.”

    ‘Porshenko’ bantered at this point that “dictators didn’t learn their lesson after Gaddafi,” in a reference to the former Libyan leader ousted and killed in the wake of NATO’s bombardment of the North African country in 2011. During that time, as Barack Obama's foreign policy chief, Hillary Clinton, she was the public figure of the project and had cackled with laughter during a TV interview after rebel forces backed by NATO had captured and brutally killed Muammar Gaddafi. Clinton famously quipped, "We came, we saw, he died!"

    “Yeah, I think that’s true,” replied Clinton to the Poroshenko imposter.

    Turning the conversation back to the “main threat” namely, Trump, the pranksters warned that “he will ask for money back, and it will be a disaster,” as he “wants to end the conflict on Russia’s terms.”

    “He's a very bad guy, as I know personally from having to run against him,” reiterated Hillary Clinton, and applauded an offer of help from the Ukrainian side to dig up some new dirt on Trump.

    “Well, anything you can do to attack him, I'm all for it. Because he's a very dangerous man,” reiterated Clinton.

    She eagerly rounded off the conversation with “Slava, Ukraina" ("Glory to Ukraine"), a wartime fascist salute originally adopted by the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA), an infamous nationalist militant group that collaborated with the Nazis during World War II, and now widely used by Ukrainian paramilitary groups, promoted by the Kiev regime.

    The US is a lunatic racket. A freaking heart attack costs over $600,000. For what? The $100 per second billing fees? Insurance is not the issue.
    The ludicrous service prices are truly exceptional.

    So much respect for property rights in the USA. The paragon of individual liberty. bounce

    The point of all the propaganda about how exceptionally free and democratic is the USA is designed to tranquilize the brains of Americans as they are
    being ass raped by their police state. A police state with capricious kangaroo courts. Note how this victim was coerced into giving up his rights
    by financial burdens. The ludicrous dismissals of patently valid suits is more of the freak show. The alleged rights of Americans are irrelevant fictions
    on paper. If you don't have the millions of dollars for the lawyers, then you have no rights.

    "He denies reality" and "he's still in political purgatory": Biden fails to convince after new interview, 07.06.2024.

    'The New York Times', 'The Economist' and the 'New Yorker' published their analyses of the interview with Joe Biden broadcast on July 5 by the 'ABC' network. All three publications agree that the president failed to calm the doubts of the electorate about his cognitive abilities nor will he put a stop to the voices that ask him to leave the race.

    After eight difficult days for the campaign of President Joe Biden, who after having starred in a catastrophic debate against former President Trump is facing increasing pressure to resign from his reelection, the president finally gave his first public interview, which was broadcast on Friday night, July 5 on the ABC network.

    Although Biden, 81, repeated in the interview that he would stay in the presidential race and denied that he had cognitive problems, the American media, even some of the most sympathetic to the Democratic Party, were not convinced by his performance.

    In a note titled "Did Joe Biden's ABC interview contain the bleeding or prolong it?, the New Yorker questions the president's performance in the interview, concluding precisely that his poor performance will "prolong the bleeding of his campaign" and that he failed in his mission of trying to reassure voters and Democratic voices calling for his resignation.

    The magazine also says that although Biden wanted to show "political conviction" in the interview, all he managed to do is confirm that the president is in "denial" about the reality of his physical and mental condition, the state of his campaign and even his electoral chances.

    "It was surprising to hear the president repeat the same old phrases, as if he had barely registered the crisis of the last eight days," the outlet notes, adding that it became clear that Biden had a "limited desire" to learn any lessons from his debate with Trump.

    In addition, the New Yorker states that although he was not seen as lost as he was on the stage of last week's televised duel, Biden did not exhibit during the interview "the kind of agile and imposing presence that would silence the chorus of Democrats who want him to step aside."

    "The interview was twenty-two minutes, surprisingly short for such a dramatic moment, in which Biden and his advisers have been accused of hiding from the press, and the president would have preferred to show himself with more energy and strength," the magazine notes, concluding that despite the attempt of his advisers to change the narrative with the interview, "Biden is still in political purgatory."

    For its part, The Economist published a mock assessment, stating that the report failed to get the Democrats out of the problem they are in ahead of the November elections.

    In an article titled "Joe Biden's interview with ABC does not dispel doubts about his future," the outlet notes that the president avoided answering some of the most sensitive questions, such as whether he committed to undergoing a cognitive test and publicly releasing the results, and that he also did not want to accept that he is behind Trump in the polls or that he may be a drag on his party.

    "The danger for Biden is that, even if he manages to show himself in a more solid way from here on out, the image of him as a wobbly old man has already been assimilated. The fact that he has conducted fewer interviews or press conferences than any president since Ronald Reagan does not help in that regard," they warn, recalling that, according to the most recent CBS signal and YouGov survey, 72% of Americans believe that the Democrat does not have the physical or mental abilities to fulfill the tasks as President.

    Meanwhile, the New York Times, perhaps the media closest to the Democratic establishment, also criticized Biden's attitude in the interview, also focusing on how the head of state preferred to dodge questions and deny reality.

    "Everything sounds good in President Biden's world. That devastating debate? Just a bad night. Those terrible numbers in the polls? They're just not accurate. The grim election predictions? The same old doomsayers, wrong again. The Democrats who want him to drop out? No one has told him that," the newspaper ironically says.

    The NYT assures that this strategy, "backed by the people who are on his payroll," are making the president increasingly isolated from the Democratic Party, whose lawmakers increasingly believe that if Biden stays as the candidate, he will make them lose the elections for the Senate and the House of Representatives.

    The article further notes that during the interview, as during the past debate with Trump, Joe Biden "once again sounded hoarse and sometimes hesitant, struggling to finish sentences."

    Therefore, the newspaper concludes, "those who have turned against him or were about to do so" were not persuaded by Biden's performance, also recalling that "time is running out if the party wants to change its candidates."

    Plans to deploy US missiles in Germany aimed at saving Biden’s reputation — Russian MFA, 07.11.2024.

    "All this is being done to somehow distract the public from the issue that is now facing the United States of America," Maria Zakharova added.

    MOSCOW, July 11. /TASS/. The announcement of plans to deploy US intermediate-and shorter-range missiles in Germany was aimed at saving US President Joe Biden’s reputation, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told the Rossiya-24 TV channel.

    "Washington is taking a series of measures to save the liberal Democratic candidate after his debate failure, when the entire country was horrified and started asking how the US information policy could have made it impossible for the government and the public to get a real idea of Biden’s physical condition," she said.

    "All this is being done to somehow distract the public from the issue that is now facing the United States of America," the diplomat added.

    According to Zakharova, this is why drastic steps are being taken, domestic and foreign policy statements are being made and the situation around Ukraine is being hyped up.

    Washington and Berlin said earlier in a joint statement that the US would begin deployments of long-range fires capabilities in Germany in 2026, "which have significantly longer range than current land-based fires in Europe."
