” I make my own luck”
Finally. America fires Trump and she has a new president in former Senator and Vice President Joe Biden. Finally for Joe Biden, he has fulfilled his destiny following nearly 50 years of government service and after countless failures in his quest to be commander in chief in the last 30 (except in 2016 when he deferred to Manifest Hillary and stood down).
Uncle Joe’s road to the White House started off as rocky as a lunar landscape and ended up as smooth, protected and gilded like an award show red carpet.Normally if something like this happened to a regular Joe it would be considered a classic Comeback Story, but this is Political Establishment Joe. It sure helped when about 20 people decided to run with Joe in the primary and about half of them plus two billionaires dropped out of the race simultaneously and wound up endorsing him in solidarity, fulfilling the DNC collusion to destroy Bernie Sanders’ second run for president. Even though Joe had no platform, no promises and no inspiration for people to give him their vote and he couldn’t even articulate what they were or even a complete sentence, he still was able to win a lot of states after Sanders narrow loss in Iowa and wins in Nevada and New Hampshire where Joe wound up near or at the bottom in the bottom of the vote tallies.
But when COVID-19 came, all bets were off. The states were primaries were held had low turnouts (even after the Biden campaign recklessly encouraged people to vote despite the risk of contagion) and the next primaries had to be rescheduled. Plus Sanders sappy performance at their last debate enabled Biden’s dominance at the polls in late Spring. While turning the nation and the primary election upside down, the novel virus managed to put Joe over the top and win the nomination with ease.
Normally, such good fortune to come about for someone during a crisis would be humbling, a quality that should come naturally for that someone who is about to compete to run and guide a nation back to prosperity and good health; but again this is Joe Biden, career politician whose loose ethics and morals and arrogance belie his straight shooter ruse personality. Biden defiantly declared to radio show host Charlemagne The God, a Black Man, that if Black People don’t vote for him they aint black. On the campaign trail at town halls, he thoroughly insulted people to their faces and challenged them to fights who challenged him on his promises and his past legislative decisions and policies, even union workers and military veterans. When a man asked him about immigration policy while he was VP, which was found that the Obama administration built those cages the kids are kept in that Trump got excoriated for, Joe Biden told that man to vote for the other guy. Yet through all that, what would at one time would have ended a campaign and also a career, Biden got away unscathed again and trudged along.
The primary winner also got away unscathed when a woman named Tara Reade, who in an interview with Katie Halper came out about a horrific experience she had with Senator Biden when he sexually assaulted her after she brought him a travel bag. Usually, a story like that would be relentlessly pursued by corporate news and the ramifications for the accused candidate would result in expulsion and resignation like with what happened with Gary Hart. But this is Joe Biden, the chosen one by Corporate News to rid the nation of a second term of President Trump. Even with the #MeToo movement still fresh in the zeitgeist, suddenly it didn’t apply to Joe Biden’s own salacious lust driven by his entitlement as an elected official.
Joe’s string of luck really hit a zenith when a laptop belonging to his never-do-well eldest son Hunter Biden that had a cavalcade of damning emails and messages of incriminating pay to play quid pro quo corruption with foreign leaders and corporations in which Hunter was parlaying his dad’s name and current position as the second highest official in the U.S.A. while high on crack that was sitting in the FBI’s hands for almost a year (an FBI that is under the employ of President Trump) that got never revealed until a copy of the hard drives contents made it to the New York Post via Rudy Giuliani and they published Hunter’s trove in dozens of articles, but when the Post tried to disseminate it on their social media accounts, tech monopolies Facebook and Twitter throttled those stories on baseless assumptions of hacked materials. Lucky for Joe, a protection racket with these corporations responsible for the dissemination of information united in solidarity to kill the momentum of these scandals.
Then Joe’s luck really got hot when COVID-19 got the President of the United States and right after their shitshow debate when Donnie made of Joe for wearing a mask. Even though Donnie came back strong tripping balls on the covid cocktail his physicians concocted for him, the fact that he thought he could ride the re-election campaign out without getting infected while blowing off wearing the mask surely had an immediate impact and discredited him to a lot of voters, along with his incorrect evaluation of the virus subsiding as cases and deaths arise from the coronavirus across the land.
Now after all those obstacles, misfortune, gaffes and telltale signs of first stage dementia, here Joe is, the president elect at 78 years old. And he didn’t even have to leave his basement at his mansion or even speak to the press as he was blatantly and brazenly avoiding them as his campaign team put “lids” on Biden’s availability as early as 10 a.m..
Joe’s road to victory was so easy and paved with gold by all media outlets and the megamoney driven loyalist and royalist Democrat Party it should be considered a new wonder of the world, because even the celebration that’s ensued is rife with anomaly, people on the streets are celebrating more about the fact that Trump was defeated than about Biden winning (even Dem hack Chuck Schumer, who is jumping around with his clique clustered by the Grand Army Plaza while maskless)
Joe Biden is truly the luckiest man on the face of the earth as well as VP Kamala Harris, the luckiest woman on the face of the earth who was the first to drop out of the race after being hyped as a top-tier candidate by corporate news and getting destroyed in the debate by Tulsi Gabbard. But despite their triumph, they are still victors of circumstance made possible by the pandemic regaining strength. So technically this is more a COVID d’etat than a natural transfer of power through democracy as people voted based on fear than on real change they can believe in and also more people got sick of Trump and just wanted to have his show cancelled. And that’s the best luck you can get when people feel they don’t have a real choice and it has worked out swimmingly for the President-elect, who needed a crisis and a wretched opponent to finally get into the oval office.
Millions of people may be happy now, but don’t expect things to fundamentally change. This is Joe Biden here, and even if the vaccines are ready and the pandemic finally ends, you’re going to have to make your own luck.
