This is a horrible group of people. Except Wang, I guess. And the only one I actually liked was Tulsi.
I don’t see how sickening Beto O’Rourke still has his Jew backers after all the gross things this weird scumbag has done.
The deadline passed at midnight Wednesday for candidates to qualify for the next Democratic presidential debate and only 10 made it, narrowing the largest field in history to a more manageable size.
Gone, for now at least, are the two-night debates of June and July, since everyone can fit on one stage, one night, for next month’s debate in Houston.
The only real suspense came in the form of billionaire Tom Steyer, who fell one poll short of qualifying even after spending nearly $12 million on advertising to boost his campaign.
Gone, too, are the earlier, wilder days of the campaign when anyone seemed like they could be the next breakout star (remember Michael Avenatti?).
“The field is cut in half overnight, basically. That’s clarifying. It’s important to get all the major candidates on stage together,” said David Brock, a Democratic fundraiser who runs a collection of major Democratic super PACs. “But on the other hand, there’s a lot of chatter about the candidates who got boxed out, they would say unfairly. I think it’s really tough if you’re not in the debate to have any hope.”
As the summer winds down, the 2020 race has settled into a more predictable rhythm, with a clearly stratified field that includes a few front-runners, a wider second-tier and a larger crop candidates barely registering in the polls who are still praying for a Hail Mary.
While more than 20 candidates are staying in the race, fewer and fewer are staying relevant.
Only three candidates are polling at double digits (Joe Biden, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders). Just five are averaging support above 2 percent (California Sen. Kamala Harris; Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana; New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker; former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke; and entrepreneur Andrew Yang). Everyone else has just around 1 percent or less in polling averages.
At least 26 candidates declared their intention to seek the Democratic presidential nomination over the past year, the largest in history for either party. But five recently dropped out, including Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York on Wednesday evening, and more are expected to follow as the prospect of making future debate stages dims.
Just so you understand, here are the folks:
I have long predicted that Joe Biden would totally collapse, and we seem to be on the verge of that now.
Lots of people are complaining that he is totally senile and saying all kinds of weird nonsense daily.
He recently forgot Barack Obama’s name while giving a speech.

I think people need to be forced to retire from both any position of power and from driving when they hit 65. Having all of these super-charged elderly folks running around has been a complete disaster for this country. We all saw that Robert Mueller disaster. And Donald Trump also appears to be going senile.
My thought has always been that when Biden inevitably collapses, the support he currently has will go to Kamala Harris, and that she’d get the nomination.
But as things have unfolded, I’m no longer confident that this is the way things will go.
It actually seems that Elizabeth Warren might well swoop in and become the obvious frontrunner, and ride her wild horses all the way to the nomination.
Anyway – all of it very much looks like we’re going to get another 4 years of orange man. Worse things could happen.
But you should also understand: the Democrats do not want to actually win. I’m sure they’d be fine if they did win, but they also very much like having Trump in office, as it gives them justification for all of their insane behavior.
Just for an obvious example: Obama is the one who really turbo-charged the policy of separating children from their parents at the border. But they couldn’t complain about it when Obama was doing it. They complained about it when Trump was doing it, which caused Trump to back down from it, and now we have the most immigrants ever in history coming in and there is nothing anyone can do to stop it.
Basically, the Democrats are using Trump and using this election to normalize ideas that would have been considered utterly insane even in 2016.
They are normalizing:
- Decriminalizing border crossings (open borders)
- Single-payer healthcare (full socialized medicine)
- Free healthcare for illegal immigrants
- Free abortions for trannies
- Free college
- Reparations for blacks (more free money to blacks)
- Green new deal (shut down all electricity, nationalize everything)
Among other things.
All of this is very good for Trump, but very bad for America. The border is going to remain open through Trump’s term, more and more anchor babies will turn 18, more and more other foreign rats turn 18 or get citizenship, and in 2024, the Democrats are going to crush it and install full open-borders globalist communism.
Or maybe Andrew Yang will win and we’ll all get paid a thousand dollars a month to sit around at home and play video games for the rest of our lives?
