The folly of endorsements

The last time we found Elizabeth ‘Fauxcahontas’ Warren talking of endorsements it was a group of hateful feminists – 3,400 of them to be precise – who threw their weight behind her.

Supposedly the backbone of democracy she spoke of came from the likes of the BlackWomxnFor (BWF) movement, which states on its own website,

“THE SPACES CREATED BY BLACK WOMXN FOR ARE INTENTIONALLY INCLUSIVE OF ALL BLACK FOLKS THAT DO NOT CLAIM MALE IDENTITY.

THIS INCLUDES BLACK TRANS & CIS WOMEN, GENDER NON-CONFORMING FOLKS AND OTHERS.”

Yes, inclusivity must have exclusion at its heart. Liberal logic at its finest.

Now that Biden has Warren’s support, will this old white male who challenges voters to tests of toxic masculinity get the support of those that supported her?

Will Biden be awaiting Julian Castro’s endorsement? Recall the senator stated he wanted to guarantee that trans females would have full access to abortions during the Democratic Party primaries. When Castro dropped out he threw his weight behind Warren even though his supporters backed Biden. So much for knowing the mood of one’s following.

At last, Obama has finally got around to backing his former VP. How eerily silent the former president was when allegations about his creepy nature around pre-pubescent girls came to light.  Despite Obama awarding  Biden with a Presidential Medal of Freedom and saying he was the best VP in American history, not one word had parsed his lips in terms of an endorsement.

In what CNN hopes is fake news, the cable network noted that more than 200 former staffers that worked in former President Barack Obama’s campaigns and administration signed a letter endorsing Elizabeth Warren’s 2020 presidential run.

Did Obama realise that Biden said at the time of his staffer’s progressive support for Warren, “I don’t need an Obama endorsement.

Biden said he wanted to put Obama on the SCOTUS bench as an election campaign manifesto, if he’d take it.

Obama’s administration is often credited with “zero scandals” recall his DoJ was so crooked a Texas District Court judge, Andrew S. Hanen, ordered its lawyers to undergo 5 years of compulsory ethics training in 2016 for deliberately misleading the court over illegal immigration. He also ordered AG Loretta Lynch to file a comprehensive plan within 60 days on how to “prevent this unethical conduct from ever happening again.”

Will Biden ask for Obama’s campaign team for help? They said at the time,

We are a group that really uniquely knows that electability is self-determining and that oftentimes it’s the people with the boldest vision and the most unlikely candidacies early on who can really shift the field…Sen. Warren really has the zest and the grit and the gumption and the audacity that we loved that President Obama really embodied.

Just how much value can one put in an endorsement? Because the endorsers of his endorser originally endorsed someone else.

Our view is this election won’t be based solely on the characters per se. There is so much material on both candidates when it comes to gaffes. Lived experience is what is at play here. Telling people they’ve never had it so good when they are struggling doesn’t win votes, which is why Trump won in 2016. This was our thinking at that time. Forget massaged data emanating from the White House marketing departments. It only pushes people the other way. 

The 2020 election will be a test of Americans resolve to be able to live out the American dream. If they vote in Biden and go back to the very administrations of the past that failed to deliver for decades we’ll know they’ve thrown in the towel. If the Bottom 50% believe that the positive change in fortunes under Trump – which we pointed out in the SOTU – before COVID19 shut down the economy, he is still very much in the race. The media will undoubtedly try and play the race card against Trump’s anti-China rhetoric, but never come between an American and patriotism in a crisis.
