Evidence Joseph Biden Intends to Be a One Term President
On 11 December 2019, Ryan Lizza bannered at Politico, “Biden signals to aides that he would serve only a single term”
While the option of making a public pledge [to serve only one term] remains available, Biden has for now settled on an alternative strategy: quietly indicating that he will almost certainly not run for a second term while declining to make a promise that he and his advisers fear could turn him into a lame duck and sap him of his political
“If Biden is elected,” a prominent adviser to the campaign said, “he’s going to be 82 years old in four years and he won’t be running for reelection.” (…)
Ronald Reagan, who, along with Trump, was the oldest person to become US President, was 70 when taking office in 1981, and he served two terms. In 1994, at the age of 83, he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, which Biden, who now is near to 78, already (and far more than Trump) seems to have. Today’s America is being run by very “senior citizens.” Their life expectancy is short, and their attention span is also getting shorter. The VP pick is consequently far more important now than it ever used to be. Kamala Harris is 55 years old. Apparently, she’s now running for President – not only for Vice President – against the incumbent Trump; and her ‘boss’, Biden, isn’t discouraging her extraordinary behavior; he is instead assisting it. This is stunning. It suggests that he knows he’s severely in decline. Here are some recent signs of this.
This statement was widely interpreted, among the surprisingly few news media that reported it, to have been just a flub by her, nothing that’s really remarkable. However, a campaign video which was published later the same day, had Joe Biden himself, reading from a teleprompter, and saying:
“A Harris Biden administration is going to relaunch that effort and keep pushing further to make it easier for military spouses and veterans to find meaningful careers to ensure teachers know how to support military children in their classrooms and to improve support for caregivers and survivors so much more than we do now.”
The indications seem fairly clear that if Americans vote for Joe Biden to become the President, then not only will he not serve a second term, but he might not even serve much (or perhaps even any) of his first term. Why would this be so? Why is not Biden himself publicly disowning what Harris had said, instead of himself saying essentially the same thing (as he did)? If the Democratic Party (like the Republican Party) is basically dictated to by the billionaires who fund it in order to persuade voters in the Party’s primaries, whom to vote for and whom to vote against as that Party’s nominee, then clearly Kamala Harris was preferred by them, even more than they preferred Biden.
As of 5 August 2019, when Forbes headlined “Here Are The Democratic Presidential Candidates With The Most Donations From Billionaires”, the rankings were this.
(14) Bernie Sanders, Julian Castro, Bill De Blasio, and Tim Ryan 0 billionaire donors
Buttigieg, who is at the very opposite end of the age spectrum, and who performed vastly better in the polling than did Harris, isn’t Black and female, and therefore Biden never even considered him for Vice President. Cory Booker is black, but he too is male, and performed even worse in the polling than did Harris.
These were the standings among the Democratic Party’s still active Presidential contenders as of immediately prior to Super Tuesday, published by Forbes.
(8) Sanders 0
The others had already dropped out, and were therefore not listed.
Biden who had had only 13 billionaires as of 5 August 2019, had 66 as of 2 March 2020. His opponent, Sanders, still had 0. This is how Biden ended up becoming the face of Harris’s Presidential campaign against Trump – who will have plenty of Republican billionaires funding his campaign.
So, is this how Kamala Harris will become America’s President? Or, will Trump’s billionaires instead succeed at defeating her?
On 12 August 2020, another magazine of the Democratic Party’s billionaires, Foreign Policy, was very excited about the Party’s Presidential choice, and headlined “Kamala Harris for the People As vice president, Harris would be ready to go toe to toe with adversaries, both foreign and domestic.”
Although Democratic Party billionaires might be as passionate for Harris as Republican Party billionaires are for Trump, will Democratic Party voters be as passionate for Biden as Republican Party voters are for
