If I were a wagering man, I might wager that there will be no more Democrat presidential “debates” before the Democratic National Convention. None at all.

With establishment Democrats all-in to win and realizing Vermont senator and Castro-admiring socialist Bernie Sanders just can’t get them there, they quickly coalesced around former Vice President Joe Biden, who reaped the rewards and was the big winner on Super Tuesday. South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar exited the race with oddly incredible speed. Tuesday, Biden followed up that win with another string of states.

So, NOW what to do? Whatever is going on with Biden (we don’t know but can speculate) is at this point preventing him from getting through virtually any event without making some kind of gaffe. His speaking appearances have reportedly been cut to seven-minute slots. His campaign asked for and received a change in the “debate” rules –- I use quotation marks because these aren’t actual debates –- to allow the two candidates to sit at a desk as they take questions from their audience. (The DNC claimed this wasn’t to benefit either candidate, but Sanders had said that standing would be fine with him.) And now, because of coronavirus concerns, they won’t use a live audience.

The next step might be simply to cancel the March 15 event, and that could very well happen. Once again, they can blame the coronavirus, or they can just say there’s no point in continuing because Biden’s got it wrapped up. In fact, that movement was already underway before the polls closed on Tuesday, with House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn of South Carolina suggesting on National Public Radio that the DNC should “step in” and cancel all remaining debates --- even stop holding state primaries --- if Biden had a really good showing and beat Bernie in Michigan (which he has done). “I think when the night is over,” he said, “Joe Biden will be the prohibitive favorite to win the Democratic nomination. If the night ends the way it has begun, I think it is time for us to shut this primary down. It is time for us to cancel the rest of the debates.” In an apparent reference to Bernie, he said, “You don’t do anything but get yourself in trouble if you continue in this contest when it’s obvious that the numbers will not shake out for you.”

It’s obvious who has the most to lose and who would really get himself “in trouble” with additional debates: Joe Biden. So party insiders simply want to declare him the winner by acclamation, before he has a chance to mess things up. We’ve been wondering how Biden could possibly make it to the convention if he had to continue debating. Now we know: they can fix it so he doesn’t have to.

Even a Republican strategist writing for the WASHINGTON EXAMINER agrees that Sanders should just drop out…

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/bernie-sanderss-time-to-drop-out-has-come

Democrat strategist James Carville said essentially the same thing on Tuesday. “Our mission is to defeat Donald Trump,” he said on MSNBC. “There’s a 99 [percent] chance that Vice President Biden is going [to be] the nominee. Let’s shut this puppy down, and let’s move on and worry about November. This thing is decided. There’s no reason to keep it going, not even a day longer.”

Indeed. With each passing day, they risk having Biden say or do something that might tend to erode support for the Democrat ticket as a whole.

Of course, it’s not Biden who’s trying to impose this, Carville said. “It’s the Democratic voters that made this decision,” he insisted. “Vice President Biden is not trying to force him [Sanders] out. You’ve got to respect voters.” Well, that is unless they’re voting for Bernie Sanders; the DNC is respecting “Bernie” voters about as much as they respected them in the race against Hillary four years ago, which is to say not at all.

Carville pushed hard for proclaiming Biden the winner RIGHT NOW: “Respect the people in South Carolina and Virginia and Michigan...Yes, they have to have respect for democracy. This is very clear, what Democrats around the country are saying. Just everywhere you go, ‘We’ve got to get rid of this guy [President Trump]. What are we doing?’ And these are not ordinary times, and we’ve got to GO. Of course, the Vice President, he’s the guy in the lead...We’ve got to bring this party together. We’ve got to stop this...We can have respect and we can have admiration for what Sen. Sanders and his supporters have accomplished, but you’ve got to respect the Democratic voters...The Democratic voters have spoken...unambiguously and clearly, and they need to be listened to.”

He kept on pushing, saying that Biden should call Sanders and say, “Let’s have a conversation here, Senator. What do we do to get this thing moving in the right direction?” I’d speculate that it would probably be Biden’s campaign people calling Sanders, as Biden himself might just challenge Bernie to a pushup contest, or get belligerent and threaten to punch him, or think they’re at a campaign rally and tell him he’s full of sh**. Or maybe call him “Pete.”

https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2020/03/10/carville-shut-this-puppy-down-biden-won-sanders-has-to-respect-the-voters/

They want to declare Biden the winner and then hide him as much as possible until the convention. Recall that when Hillary was running in 2016, concerns about her physical health were met with an incredibly light campaign schedule –- a virtual disappearing act for weeks at a time. Biden will have handlers whose goal is to similarly conceal him. (Again, the coronavirus will make a great excuse.) The difference this time, I believe, is that those running Biden’s campaign have no illusions that he will ever be on that debate stage with Donald Trump. By the convention, someone else will be in place to fill that bill.

If I’m right, and this is the way Democrat higher-ups are engineering their “democratic” process, it’s hard to understand why a lot of rank-and-file Democrats wouldn’t be extremely upset about that. Of course, there’s a movement within the Democrat party, #WalkAway, that calls for, well, walking away. The party has moved so crazy-far left and is so unconcerned with preserving individual rights and the democratic process that many are simply leaving.

A lot of Bernie supporters were not hard-core socialists –- didn’t even know what socialism is –- and they didn’t get it until he started praising Fidel Castro in recent days. They like a populist approach to governing but don’t share the socialist belief that the government should own the means of production, with all the control that would entail. When they “walk away” from the Democrat Party, they might want to look around at the “Trump economy,” talk to a few Trump supporters and realize their party has been lying to them about who Trump is and what he’s trying to accomplish. They might even see he’s in their corner and wants them to do well. And instead of going over to Biden (or, more accurately, whomever the DNC puts in his place), they just might want to go over to Trump.

    Reading this message made me see how naive I have been when I have stated that "nothing will shock me anymore!" because I just FELT shocked when I read this! Mike, the darkness is too dark for me to try and fathom it....BECAUSE....

    I cannot fathom how ANY political party would push for a man who is beginning to suffer from dementia to be their nominee, not to mention that I also cannot fathom how VOTERS could vote for such a one! No, I cannot begin to fathom the darkness of voters' insane thinking that they would prefer to see "their" country led by a man suffering from dementia than a man like Donald Trump!

    At the risk of you, ahem, beginning to question my spiritual credibility, I WILL tell you that the way I deal WITH having to read about this insanity that you write about (which surely witnesses TO me, by the way, that you said yes to picking up that cross Jesus said would be the cost of discipleship since you inflict this suffering on YOURSELF)...... is that I pick up the little teddy bear that sits at the edge of the table where I read ABOUT all this insanity and, after I pick her up I hug her and smother her with kisses!

    HOWEVER, since doing that only serves to give me but a glimmer of reality, after I FINISH kissing, and hugging, her, I then begin to TALK to her and her pure, innocent, childlike responses enables me to, finally, feel like I AM still on planet earth and that I was NOT kidnapped while I was sleeping and dropped off on some other planet!

    Oh yes! I will be the first one to give testimony to the absolute truth that His grace IS sufficient in every...and ANY...circumstance, but, nevertheless, I have to admit, that I would find it even harder to read about all this insanity if I didn't have that little teddy bear to hug, kiss, and talk to afterwards!......AND, if the insanity you report on gets any more insane I might just have to resort to holding her WHILE I read your newsletters!

    And I have written this at the risk of one your readers thinking, "no wonder this 'Kay' SEES that Joe Biden has the beginning of dementia!" ...1

    I see the DNC going to let Biden just stew, and then at the convention, shove "Mike" Obama up in the ticket. "It" has a lot of star power, and is quite popular with the stupid, vapid, and college "INDOCTRINATED". THAT could be a tough nut to crack, even though "IT" has said "IT" hates the U.S., and especially the white population, just like "IT'S" Constitution wrecking husband.

    03/11/2020 11:25 AM

    I’ve been saying for awhile now that the DNC has plans behind the scenes to put a ringer in as VP - Hillary, Michelle O, Oprah... even Barack again! Someone who would stir Democrat emotions and fire up all the election fraud gambits. I truly grieve for my country!

  • Rosemary Scott

    03/11/2020 10:59 AM

    Mike, I agree that there will be someone else in Joe's place in the end. I have been speculating for several weeks that the DNC has a plan, as usual a corrupt one, to suddenly have Hillary jump in at the last minute; or Hillary be Joe's VP, thus taking over and finally becoming the first woman president. Remember Joe saying "I'm old, I'm going to have a VP who is very qualified and experienced": or something like that. So then Joe suddenly has to leave office, being diagnosed with dementia, maybe, or something more sinister, should they win (God forbid!). Hillary has been making herself quite visible again lately, ready to pounce, saying, 'many, many' people are urging her to run. The DNC always has a plan, and it's always evil.

    How anyone could see Biden as our HEAD OF STATE negotiating with the likes of Russia, North Korea, Iran, etc., without starting an international incident by calling another leader some inappropriate name, or any other form of infirm stupidity, is beyond me. Is this country actually considering this man for PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, or his successor? How has President Trump ever failed us?

    And if you don't like me calling him by his last name only, then quit doing this to our present honorable, esteemed and COMPETENT President.

  • Steve

    03/11/2020 10:44 AM

    Democrats want Biden to be the the nominee so they can put Hilary on the ballot with him. That would put him on fairly strong footing against Trump in the general election in November and if
    Biden should win, have him declared incompetent. Guess what? Their sweetheart is president! Now isn't that convenient? I find that thought to be rather disgusting.

    Interesting thoughts and comments. Probably spot on! My concern is that there is so much hype on this virus thing - we get it 24/7 - the same thing over and over - that if something really, really disastrous happens with this or yet another strain, people will ignore it. Remember the story of the boy who cried wolf? Sometimes people can hear something so many times they stop listening.

    I’ve been saying for awhile now that the DNC has plans behind the scenes to put a ringer in as VP - Hillary, Michelle O, Oprah... even Barack again! Someone who would stir Democrat emotions and fire up all the election fraud gambits. I truly grieve for my country!

    Mike, I agree that there will be someone else in Joe's place in the end. I have been speculating for several weeks that the DNC has a plan, as usual a corrupt one, to suddenly have Hillary jump in at the last minute; or Hillary be Joe's VP, thus taking over and finally becoming the first woman president. Remember Joe saying "I'm old, I'm going to have a VP who is very qualified and experienced": or something like that. So then Joe suddenly has to leave office, being diagnosed with dementia, maybe, or something more sinister, should they win (God forbid!). Hillary has been making herself quite visible again lately, ready to pounce, saying, 'many, many' people are urging her to run. The DNC always has a plan, and it's always evil.

    How anyone could see Biden as our HEAD OF STATE negotiating with the likes of Russia, North Korea, Iran, etc., without starting an international incident by calling another leader some inappropriate name, or any other form of infirm stupidity, is beyond me. Is this country actually considering this man for PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, or his successor? How has President Trump ever failed us?

    And if you don't like me calling him by his last name only, then quit doing this to our present honorable, esteemed and COMPETENT President.

    Democrats want Biden to be the the nominee so they can put Hilary on the ballot with him. That would put him on fairly strong footing against Trump in the general election in November and if
    Biden should win, have him declared incompetent. Guess what? Their sweetheart is president! Now isn't that convenient? I find that thought to be rather disgusting.

    They are setting this up for hilary or obama to be vice president, everyone knows Biden is not capable and when he dies you know who will be in there.

    Interesting thoughts and comments. Probably spot on! My concern is that there is so much hype on this virus thing - we get it 24/7 - the same thing over and over - that if something really, really disastrous happens with this or yet another strain, people will ignore it. Remember the story of the boy who cried wolf? Sometimes people can hear something so many times they stop listening.
