Man o man, Biden goes off the tracks and starts speaking gibberish one sentence in every time and he’s reading off cue cards in his own home where he had hours to rehearse a paragraph. Im sure looking forward to the debates.
The dems are going to try and come up with a way to not have debates or have them done by write in Q&A to each other.

A woman accuses Biden of sexual assault — and few liberals listen

A woman accuses Biden of sexual assault — and few liberals listen
BY BERNARD GOLDBERG, OPINION CONTRIBUTOR —

https://thehill.com/opinion/white-ho...iberals-listen

Did I miss something, I've not seen this in the news....could it be that the Covid19 story is just eclipsing this or is the MSM burying it?

It’s a good thing for Joe Biden that he’s not a Republican and that the only news story getting attention is the one about the pandemic — because if Biden were running for president under the GOP banner, and if the virus weren’t the only story on the radar screen, he’d be in real trouble right about now.

A woman named Tara Reade, who worked for then-Sen. Biden in the 1990s, claims he sexually assaulted her in 1993. There were no witnesses, she says, and so she didn’t go public with the accusation — an accusation Biden denies.

I don’t know what happened, or if anything actually did happen. But if we apply the “Believe All Women” standard that liberal and progressive Democrats have been preaching to us for some time now, wouldn’t we have to assume that Joe Biden is guilty?


That doesn’t mean he is, of course. But it does beg a question: Did Democrats really mean it when they told us that we have to believe women who make sexual assault allegations? Or did they mean it’s OK to look the other way at times, depending on who the alleged assailant is?

As for who’s looking the other way, let’s start with journalists.

According to a March 31 report by the Media Research Center (MRC), a conservative organization that monitors what it sees as liberal bias in the media, since the accusations came to light, “ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and CNN haven’t said a single word about them.”

And according to the MRC, since the allegation went public, “CNN, MSNBC and NBC have hosted Biden for a total of three interviews (including an hour-long town hall on CNN), and no host asked even a single question about these new charges.”

Since that report came out, several news outlets — The Economist, Salon, Medium and Democracy Now among them — have written about the allegation.


Still, how could it be that so many major mainstream news organizations remain uninterested in such a juicy story involving sex? Having been a working journalist at the national level since 1972, it’s been my experience that reporters salivate more when going after a conservative Republican than they would going after a liberal Democrat.

It’s really that simple.

And if you need proof all we have to do is go back to 2018 and the Senate hearings on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court.

You’ll recall that Kavanaugh was accused of assaulting Christine Blasey Ford at a high school party in 1982. As with Tara Reade, the accusation was many years old. And like Biden, Kavanaugh denied the allegation.

“But in the 12 days following the first reports of Ford’s claim,” MRC says, “the ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening news shows churned out 305 minutes of coverage, a scant amount of that airtime — less than five minutes — mentioned that none of the witnesses named by Ford would confirm her story.”


So how much credence should the mainstream media attach to Reade’s accusations against the Democratic Party’s presumptive nominee for president? Well, journalists might want to take guidance from Biden himself, who said this about Christine Blasey Ford:

“For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you’ve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real, whether or not she forgets facts, whether or not it’s been made worse or better over time.”

So should we give Joe Biden the benefit of the doubt, or should we afford it to Tara Reade? Let’s again go to Biden’s own words for guidance.

“What should happen is the woman should be given the benefit of the doubt and not be, you know, abused again by the system. I hope that they understand what courage it takes for someone to come forward and relive what they believe happened to them and let them state it, but treat her with respect.”

But aside from a few news outlets, most journalists are not giving the benefit of the doubt to Tara Reade. What they’re doing is ignoring her — even though they were more than willing to publish flimsy, unsubstantiated charges when they were against Brett Kavanaugh.

No one seriously believes that Reade’s accusation will put a dent in Biden’s candidacy. It’ll amount to nothing more than throwing spitballs at a battleship — though Biden is hardly a battleship. But the accusation will give Democrats an opportunity for some much-needed introspection; an opportunity to examine what “Believe All Women” really means to them. It’s an opportunity they almost certainly won’t take.

But I can tell you what “Believe all Women” means in the real world of journalism and politics. It means believe all women who go after conservatives, and try really hard to turn a blind eye when they go after fellow liberals.

As I say, it’s really as simple as that.

Not a shock. His only chance was to create energy with his in person speeches and campaign events. Now, with no aid from the media or the DNC his time is over.

BTW, I have an amp that goes to 12. It's better than 11.

You'll probably die by spontaneous combustion. Like our third drummer. Or you may choke on vomit. But we may never know who's vomit.......

All I know, the women see the armadillo in my trousers, and go crazy.

For me, the funny thing about "this is Spinal Tap", is it gets funnier every time I watch it. I always spot a new joke.

COVID-19 is a blessing for Biden. There is no way he could have run a strenuous conventional campaign either primary or Presidential.

To top it off there will possibly be mailed in ballots, which the fraud factor favoring Dems. Certainly sleepy Joe has a good shot at winning.

God, I can't believe I just typed this.

Here is the complete list...

2. @JoeBiden mischaracterized an op ed that just referenced coronavirus.

3. He pushed the bogus claim @realDonaldTrump called it a "hoax."

4. He falsely claimed that Trump turned down an offer from the WHO to provide testing kits.

5. @JoeBiden falsely claimed the Trump Administration cut funding for the @CDCgov. In truth, it has gone up under @realDonaldTrump. (Obama/Biden sought CDC cuts in 5 of 8 of their budget proposals)

6. He falsely accused President Trump of disbanding the NSC pandemic responses team


Those are serious accusations and that's a lot of lying for such a serious issue. Even after he is fact-checked, @JoeBiden just keeps making those claims as if his team doesn't tell him or he just doesn't care.

In interviews he's conducted, nobody has corrected him.

Your link only references 1 of your 6 claims, where are the other sources?

Here - I'll cherry pick an article for you too
