"You can disagree with the McConnell rule, which was previously known as the Biden rule, but you should describe it accurately. It's no confirmations in a presidential election year *when senate and presidency are held by different parties.* Doesn't apply this year."
11:42 PM · Sep 18, 2020
Mollie Hemingway
I could find no quote by Biden that contains the caveat "when senate and presidency are held by different parties". I'm pretty sure one of you is lying. Let me rephrase that, both of you are lying.



"The difference between 2016 and 2020, of course, is that the Republicans control both the Senate and the White House, meaning, the American majority’s will is clearly represented in the federal government. In 2016, the government was divided, and the will of the public was much less discernible. This was always McConnell's argument. He made it clear in 2016 that because the White House and Senate were controlled by different parties, he could not allow Garland's confirmation to move forward. That is no longer the case, as McConnell made clear in his statement Friday night.

"In the last midterm election before Justice Scalia's death in 2016, Americans elected a Republican Senate majority because we pledged to check and balance the last days of a lame duck president's second term. Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party president's Supreme court nominee in a presidential election year," McConnell said. "By contrast, Americans reelected our majority in 2016 and expanded it in 2018 because we pledged to work with President Trump and support his agenda, particularly his outstanding appointments to the federal judiciary. Once again, we will keep our promise."
From your link:
In 2016, McConnell invoked comments that then-Sen. Joe Biden had made on the Senate floor in June 1992 in the wake of Justice Clarence Thomas’s contentious confirmation hearing. The Senate should hold off on additional confirmation hearings until after the 1992 presidential election, Biden argued, citing the combative nature of Thomas’s confirmation. It was this rule that McConnell cited four years ago.​
“The Senate will continue to observe the ‘Biden rule’ so that the American people have a voice in this momentous decision,” McConnell explained.​

I see you could not find a quote from either Biden or McConnell where either defined the Biden Rule as Mitch has done.

I guess that is as close as you'll ever come to honesty, kind of a drive-by shooting of it. Mitch would be proud of you.


This is an opportunity that the Republicans will have cause to regret if they allow it to get away unresolved.

While evil.....you and the rest of the Democrats... will eventually win, I suspect, grabbing this open seat on the Court will postpone the destruction you presage for some time, perhaps a generation.


There is no way to define this other than the march of evil:
The Democrat Party is now running on full-blown anti-white racism, socialism, infanticide, opposition to free speech, substituting illegal alien voters for the American citizenry, support for rioters, arsonists, murderers, and anarchists, and anti-Semitism… the knuckle-dragging, atavistic pagan party.
So the GOP is now the party where the ends justifying the means? I guess you can no longer condemn the Dems for ANYTHING they do to get into power.

Biden's wife admitting that the Wuhan is a fraud, and if Biden is elected, the Democrats will drop the whole scam


You can run, but you can't hide.
Wrong, this is Biden's wife acknowledging that Trump will never deal honestly with the virus threat, as he himself admitted. If you're looking for a scam, look to Trump. You can't hide from the truth forever.

"....Trump will never deal honestly with the virus threat,...."


Let's see who says you're lying:


“Gov. Cuomo Heaps Praise on Trump for Responsiveness and Decisiveness Amid Coronavirus Outbreak” Gov. Cuomo Heaps Praise on Trump for Responsiveness and Decisiveness Amid Coronavirus Outbreak


“California Gov. praises Trump's help on coronavirus crisis” California Gov. praises Trump's help on coronavirus crisis



“Some Democrats Praise Trump’s Leadership Amid Coronavirus

President Trump’s recent actions to stop the spread of coronavirus have won him praise from an unlikely source: Representative Ilhan Omar….Omar quoted fellow Squad member Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) as saying “unprecedented times require unprecedented leadership,” and then added that “we are seeing that in our country right now.”

And Dana Bash of CNN asserted the president’s new aggressive approach to the virus makes him the “kind of leader that people need.” Some Democrats Praise Trump’s Leadership Amid Coronavirus

“Connecticut Governor Praises Trump's Reopening Guidelines https://townhall.com/tipsheet/bronsonstocking/2020/04/24/ct-gov-praises-trumps-reopening-guidelines-n2567597



“On Fox News Friday night, Michigan State Representative Karen Whitsett told Tucker Carlson that text messages she's been receiving from Governor Whitmer have not been pleasant ever since the Democratic state lawmaker credited President Trump for her personal recovery from the Wuhan coronavirus. The lawmaker now faces a censure from her Democratic colleagues for crediting the president for her recovery.” Whitmer Sent Unpleasant Text Messages To Dem Lawmaker Who Thanked Trump for Her Coronavirus Recovery



“Democratic lawmaker who endorsed Trump: 'Black Americans are waking up. An uprising is near'

A Georgia Democratic lawmaker who recently announced he is supporting President Trump in November lashed out at Democrats for “using and abusing” the black community and taking its vote for granted for “far too long.” Democratic lawmaker who endorsed Trump: 'Black Americans are waking up. An uprising is near'

“I will not allow the Democrats to bully me into submission,” state Rep. Vernon Jones said.

Democrat Phil Murphy, Governor of New Jersey: GOVERNOR MURPHY: First of all, Mr. President, to you and your team, we’re incredibly honored to be here. I thank you for the enormous help in our darkest hour of need: ventilators; as you could see, PPE; testing sites. Now, I think, we’re going to be in a very good place thanks to you and your team as it relates to expanding testing dramatically so that we’ll be able to begin to take those steps to reopen. Remarks by President Trump in a Meeting with Governor Murphy of New Jersey | The White House

“Gov. Inslee owes US Army, Feds an apology

A week ago, Jay Inslee slammed our federal government for not doing enough for our state.

“The fact is, we cannot get as much help as we would like from the federal government”, he said.

This was a week after the United States Army, under orders from the Trump administration, sent hundreds of soldiers to build a 250-bed hospital at the Century Link Field Events Center.

That hospital has sat empty ever since. Not one patient. On Wednesday, Inslee announced that he wanted the facility disassembled and sent back to the federal government. How much do you think think this assembly and disassembly is costing taxpayers? No one will give me a figure.

Earlier this week, Inslee announced that he is returning 400 ventilators to the feds that we don’t need.

A week ago, he said the administration wasn’t doing enough for our state. Now, it’s clear, they’ve done way too much. A person of integrity would apologize for his phony criticism. That apology, of course, will never come.” Dori: Gov. Inslee owes US Army, Feds an apology



“President Donald Trump granted Michigan’s request for a major disaster declaration Saturday as the coronavirus outbreak worsens, the same day as Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced that more federal medical supplies already have arrived in the state.

The White House announced the approval early Saturday, March 28.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer sought a major disaster declaration on Thursday. Saturday morning, she noted that more than 112,000 N-95 masks had just arrived from the strategic national stockpile.” Trump approves Michigan disaster declaration; Whitmer says more supplies on the way in coronavirus fight

Let's see who says you're lying:
[...]
Let's see who says I'm telling the truth:

“You just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed. And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flu...This is deadly stuff.”​
And on March 19, as the virus was exploding, Trump told Woodward: “To be honest with you...I wanted to always play it down. I still want to play it down, because I don’t want to create a panic.”​

That's the philosophy of people who think they're "at war".

It gives them a handy excuse for devolving into their ugliest, basest, most childish behaviors.

Those who have put a great deal of effort into making our tribes as angry and divided as possible are winning. Or, they've won, not sure.

I think Trump did the best he could as america as a whole failed to deal with the virus. You'd think the wealthiest nation in the world would be prepared for something like this. It's very disappointing.

"people who think they're "at war".

This is going to be one more of those posts where your lack of education will be glaringly exposed.


The march of Progressives:

a. Herbert Croly, the intellectual link between Wilson and FDR, and founding editor of ‘The New Republic,’ wrote ‘The Promise of American Life,’ wherein we find a veritable checklist of fascist characteristics.: the need to mobilize society like an army, spiritual rebirth, the necessity of revolutionary leaders, reliance on manufactured, unifying national ‘myths,’ contempt for parliamentary democracy, non-Marxist Socialism, nationalism, a spiritual calling for military expansion, the need to make politics into a religion.

b. From Croly: The remedy for ‘chaotic individualism of our political and economic organization’ was a ‘regeneration’ led by a heroic-saint who could overthrow the tired doctrines of liberal democracy in favor of a restored and heroic nation. Herbert Croly, “The Promise of American Life,”p.14
So, where is the line between fascism and Progressivism?

c. Croly believed that life should be like a ‘school,’ and as such frequently demands ‘severe coercive measures.’ James Bovard, “Freedom in Chains: The Rise of the State and the Demise of the Citizen,” p.8 Like Roosevelt, Croly looked forward to wars as the vehicle of progress, and saw as the Spanish-American War’s greatest achievement that it gave birth to Progressivism.

The truth is that only one person can know if Trump will ever "deal honestly with the virus threat" and that is Trump himself. And his answer is that he won't deal honestly. Everyone else is guessing.

It's the act of desperate people who know they are losing the war. When you can't win fighting fairly you either concede an honorable defeat or you cheat. You'd never question your ideology since, like stone tablets, they can't be altered.

I put in a placeholder, [...], to indicate an edit and assumed anyone could find your links in your previous post. As I said, since I quoted THE authority on what Trump would do in the future, there was no reason to tie up any bandwidth with anyone's opinions of what he'd done in the past.

As I showed, numerous elected Democrat politicians praised Trump's work on the flu-like virus.


But that isn't enough....
…..the Chinese flu plan to shut down the economy to defeat Trump.
The hugely inflated number of Wuhan deaths was produced by claiming every death was a Wuhan death, no matter the actual cause.
CDC even said only 6% were from this virus alone.
Those at risk were the elderly and those with causes that would have caused death without this virus.
A big clue should have been the conflicting advice from the ‘experts’ reversing themselves one day after another.

I guess the GOP are only pro-life before retirement. After that it's off to the iceberg with you. Senicide, or geronticide, is the killing of the elderly, or their abandonment to death.

Agreed. They must want corporate america to have a cheap labor source. Get to work, then retire and please kick the bucket as social security and Medicare are somehow bankrupting the country. I am against abortion. I'm also for protecting the elderly. Some believe we'll someone has to die?

Afraid of what you'll see. Obviously. In fairness to you, that is certainly understandable.

"... the faults of the other tribe."

Tribe is an apt term for these savages:

The Democrat Party is now running on full-blown anti-white racism, socialism, infanticide, opposition to free speech, substituting illegal alien voters for the American citizenry, support for rioters, arsonists, murderers, and anarchists, and anti-Semitism… the knuckle-dragging, atavistic pagan party.


There is no equivalence.

6. A microcosm of the scam was revealed in Nashville, where a reporter, Dennis Ferrier, revealed emails that showed how the Democrat administration lied about who was in danger just to keep their economy closed.



“On Wednesday, FOX 17 News Investigative Reporter Dennis Ferrier shared emails exchanged between the mayor's office and health department showing coronavirus cases on lower Broadway may have been so low, the office decided not to share the information with the public.

The email exchanges were focused on the bars and restaurants at the heart of Music City, these establishments being among the hardest hit by regulations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

…Ferrier said. "Don't you think the bar and restaurant owners, some who are going out of business every week deserve to know that there were around 80 cases?...We talked about sharing good news, that was pretty good news." FOX 17 News reporter holds Nashville mayor's office accountable for leaked COVID-19 emails
