Time for Healing Post-US Election? Hell no While Injustice Festers Unresolved!
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)
At age-78 in days, Biden is a physically and cognitively impaired shell of his former self.
He's a frontman figurehead for the deeply corrupted Dem machine — a trojan horse for authoritarian Harris to take over when he's too far gone to continue the charade as president in his deteriorated state.
Are Republicans a sounder alternative?
One-party rule with two right wings — independents entirely shut out — is no choice at all for voters.
It's why every time so-called elections are held, dirty business as usual continuity always wins.
Names and faces come and go. Despite a flawed system by design, occasional candidates of stature once ran for high office.
Franklin Roosevelt for New Deal initiatives when badly needed and Jack Kennedy's transformation in office from warrior to peacemaker are most notable.
No one remotely of their stature is permitted to be standard bearers for US high office today.
Since announcing his candidacy, notably since chosen as Dem standard bearer, Biden has done little more than go through the motions, and just barely.
Accept for soundbites, his remarks are pre-scripted.
A look-alike double impersonates him when public appearances are longer than brief comments.
The difference is noticeable and more than just physically.
The real Biden stammers and stutters. He's often unable to get his facts straight.
The double is more smooth-talking and self-assured.
If he's needed to impersonate the Dem standard bearer, how will the real Joe Biden hold up under the rigors of high office?
It includes face-to-face meetings with foreign leaders, along with daily domestic political and other officials in all walks of life?
It's one thing for a US head of state to enter office physically and mentally sound, deteriorating while still president.
It happened numerous times before— notably in November 1944 when Franklin Roosevelt ran and was elected for the fourth time as US president in a visibly weakened condition.
The following April he was dead at age-63, reportedly from a cerebral hemorrhage.
Biden's condition is known by family and close associates.
Dem party bosses surely know he's in no shape to handle the nation's highest office.
Yet he was chosen anyway. Was Harris chosen to replace him midterm?
Was election 2020 rigged to make Trump a one-term president?
Were major media enlisted across the board to be part of the scheme long in advance?
Are Trump's justifiable legal challenges doomed to fail?
The answers to all of the above appear to be in the affirmative.
According to casino.org on November 5, bookmakers are already paying off wagers that Biden would defeat Trump even though Election 2020 is undecided.
UK bookmaker William Hill has odds for Biden winning at 93.3%.
London-based Betfair has Biden defeating Trump at 92.31%.
According to these bookmakers, it's a near-sure thing.
Post-election remarks by Biden were meaningless/pre-scripted boilerplate, claiming:
He "seeks not to divide, but to unify (sic)."
He "sought this office to restore the soul of America (sic)."
He wants to "make America respected around the world again and to unite us here at home (sic)."
"It's time to put away the harsh rhetoric, to lower the temperature, to see each other again, to listen to each other again, to make progress (sic)."
"We must stop treating our opponents as our enemy (sic)."
"We are not enemies. We are Americans (sic)."
Remember Trump's on the stump and countless tweet pledges to"drain the swamp (sic)."
Four years later, its "swampier" than ever.
Remember in his January 17, 2017 inaugural address he said the following:
"We…are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and to restore its promise for all of our people (sic)."
"(W)e will get the job done (sic)."
"(T)oday…we are transferring power from Washington…and giving it back to you, the American people (sic)."
"(T)here (has been) little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land."
"That all changes – starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment. It belongs to you (sic)."
"January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again (sic)."
"The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer (sic)."
All of the above remarks were empty rhetoric.
The vast majority of Americans are much worse off today politically and economically than when Trump took office.
As inauguration day — January 20, 2021— approaches, it's virtually certain that ordinary Americans will be worse off four years hence from their current status.
It won't matter regardless of which right wing of duopoly rule controls the executive and/or congressional branches of government.
That's the disturbing state of today's America — that's beyond the power of any chief executive to fix.
Neither Trump or Biden/Harris will try.
If a future US president seeks peace over endless wars and governance of, by, and for everyone equitably — a JFK fate will highly likely follow, a "safe" alternative in the wings to take over.
