What Does "Bipartisan" Mean To Status Quo Joe? "Nothing Would Fundamentally Change"


Would it surprise you to read that Status Quo Joe is trying to woo lots of Republican donors? It shouldn't-- and he is. What it should do, however, is alarm you. What's Biden telling these Republican millionaires and billionaires about how he'll govern the country? He could be saying "Just look at my record." Or is he going further? He's the only top contender not calling for Trump's impeachment. Is he explaining that on day one he'll pardon Trump and his family and his regime so we can move on and get a fresh start? I'd be he is.

Listen to the clip up top. The whole thing reveals a lot about who Biden is but this is the part that frightens me: "You go out and bundle $250,000 for me, all legal, and then you call me after I'm elected and say 'Joe, I'd like to come and talk to you about somethin'.' You didn't buy me, but it's human nature; you helped me. I'm going to say, 'Sure, come on in.'" Biden's brother and several family members are sleazy culture-of-corruotion lobbyists who have bene trading on his name for decades. He never stopped it. After all, it's practically a Biden family slogan that "lobbyists are not bad people... People who accept the money from them are not bad people." But they are. It's a form of legalistic bribery that has to be ended, not celebrated.

On Tuesday, Biden openly, earnestly-- and with all his heart and soul-- told a roomful of Wall Street vultures, munching hors d’oeuvres that included lobster, chicken satay and crudites at the Carlyle Hotel: "Remember, I got in trouble with some of the people on my team, on the Democratic side, because I said, you know, what I’ve found is rich people are just as patriotic as poor people. Not a joke. I mean, we may not want to demonize anybody who’s made money... Truth of the matter is, you all know, you all know in your gut what has to be done. We can disagree in the margins. But the truth of the matter is, it’s all within our wheelhouse and nobody has to be punished. No one’s standard of living would change. Nothing would fundamentally change... I need you very badly.

The Trump swamp hasn't been disgusting enough? Now we need a "bipartisan" Biden swamp? After all, isn't that the kind of "bipartisan" Biden is such an evangelist for? The bipartisan of business as usual-- you get yours and I get mine and we go out for martinis after work and laugh at the suckers outside the Beltway?

In his Splinter story Tuesday, Paul Blest wrote that Republican multimillionaire John Catsimatidis, owner of the Gristedes supermarket chain (and donor-- like Trump bragged he always was-- to anyone regardless of party, who will help his business interests), attended a fundraiser for Biden at the New York home of investor and short-seller Jim Chanos, at which he said Biden spoke to him for about 10 minutes and asked for his help.

Is it beyond Biden's ken to understand that the racist never called him "boy" because he's white?

Catsimatidis is a Trump loyalist-- he gave a Trump SuperPAC $100,000 in 2016-- but as long as a politicians is willing to scratch his back, he's always been willing to write a check and push them on his sleazy radio show. "I think Joe Biden is the most common sense nominee of the 23 people running in the Democratic Party," he told CNBC. "Monetarily, I did not commit to helping him but I will help him brotherly, on my radio show and with all my media contacts." Blest continued: "In total, the Catsimatidis family gave over $200,000 to Democrats and nearly a million to Republicans in 2016. In 2018, the family gave over $850,000 to Republicans and over $76,000 to Democrats. Catsimatidis has also been involved in politics himself, running a failed Republican bid for New York City mayor in 2013... Catsimatidis was not the only Republican at the donor meeting Monday. Former U.S. Sen. Al D’Amato was also there. Other notable guests at the event included former Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin, who served under former President Barack Obama and Trump; Michael Kempner, CEO of public relations firm MWWPR; and real estate executive Bruce Mosler."

The New York Post also covered Biden's revolting money chase this week. It was as though he asked his staff to find every shady character with a reputation for corruption.
Joe Biden on Tuesday hit up the law firm that paid disgraced Assembly speaker Shelly Silver loads of cash for steering clients their way-- a day after one of President Trump’s top supporters turned down the former veep’s plea for a donation.

Biden spoke to a few dozen employees at the East Village law firm Weitz and Luxenberg, which paid the twice-convicted Silver hundreds of thousands to steer cancer patients to its lawyers.

Silver was convicted of pocketing roughly $4 million, but remains free on bail as he appeals his second conviction.

...Biden called for restoring the “soul” of the country and its standing in the international arena, championing the middle class and defeating Trump.

...Biden spoke earlier to about 100 people at the Midtown firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, which issued the report in the 2015 “Deflategate” controversy involving New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

Biden also told those in attendance, who forked over $2,800 each for the privilege, that the “wealth gap” was a threat to America.

“The fact of the matter is, you represent a lot of really good people, you represent a lot of people in need, you represent everybody,” he said.

What's not to like? If you're a Republican fat cat

there is no democrap candidate that would mean anything would fundamentally change.
no, not even Bernie.

nothing will change until Pelosi goes, scummer goes, hoyer goes, Clyburn goes, murray goes...

nothing will change until the democrap party goes.

which means nothing will change. all this is pointless. voters are far too stupid to do what must be done... opting for the easier status quo PARTY.

fuck we're stupid!

yes, bipartisan means that both Nazi voters and democrap voters agree to elect people and parties that won't change anything, ever.

I question why the Party feels that Biden is to be the nominee with all of this baggage. Just how big is the payoff to the Party for taking this position?

the payoff is for the party to thwart Bernie and Elizabeth. corporations and billionaires fear/loathe their progressive/altruistic/socialist rhetoric. They'll pay big to keep them both OUT of the nomination.

joe is someone they can trust to stay bought. after all, he's been loyally bought for almost a half century already.
