A Hill To Die On?

Dems’ self-destructive defense of Biden family corruption

You know those idealized, perfectly conical shapes small children draw to depict hills and mountain peaks? Well, according to the Cambridge Hillwalking Club, the Gaelic term for such a hill or peak so shaped is bidean or bidein. Usually we find depictions of bideins adorning kindergarten walls and refrigerator doors, but in the case of the 2020 Democrat presidential primary, it would seem the pooh-bahs of the party’s congressional delegation seem to view, like small children, their own morally faulted, fissured, and distinctly irregular Biden as one of those idealized, perfectly symmetrical bideins, a pinnacle to be defended against all comers, in spite of a widely televised admission of corruption by Joe, involving himself and his son.

If Trump-deranged, impeachment-crazed Democrats were still demonstrating even minor signs of political sanity, one might suppose they would think long and hard before trying to defend such overt dishonesty while simultaneously attempting to impeach the sitting president for a far less serious and less provable act involving largely the same players in the same country. The Democrat leadership are confident that they can pull off this legerdemain because they believe that through their media minions, they control the watching eyes of the American public, keeping the rubes focused on fanciful hearings while the Bidens and their corrupt behavior remain hidden by media sleight of hand. Their confidence is easy to understand; Democrats have long enjoyed the luxury of having the coastal, urban, elite media acting as fang-toothed propagandists for the party while hiding behind a hypocritical hijab of pious impartiality.

But now the media are no longer making even a token attempt to appear unbiased; their masks have come off, and their role as the publicity arm of a single political party is ever clearer to millions more of the American public. Now the Democrat prestidigitation is being seen for what it truly is: blatant, very high-level corruption during the Obama administration that Dems are trying to ignore and, even worse, condone, while cynically trying to unseat a president for a far less egregious offense. Dems refuse to accept the reality that acknowledging Joe Biden’s probably corrupt activities bear investigating might mitigate the stench of hypocrisy that now surrounds their impeachment proceedings.

The Democrat leadership may still feel confident that with the media’s one-sided support, they can bamboozle the American public with their Capitol Hill hocus pocus, but they would be well advised to pause first and ask themselves:

Hill to die on?

    Good synopsis Poe, and spot on. Commissar and ol’ SteelyI showing up to refute you with his (Poodle’s) empirical data and his (SteelyI’s) superior knowledge of all things in

    At the risk of boring everyone I will restate some of my previous comments. daTrumpster was NOT my FIRST choice in the primaries. He was my ONLY choice in the election. I was kinda pulling for Ben Carson and before him, I liked the way that Herman Cain talked. I guess both were not the “cool black guys” or were too much “Uncle Tom” for the powers that corrupt to get any support from the demon rats or the mess media. A true study of history will show that the dims have for DECADES used their insidious corruption to maintain a stranglehold on power. Sadly enough, BOTH parties are guilty as sin for looking after themselves and to hell with the taxpayer. BOTH sides are mad at or in fear of Trump because he is an outsider and the American People are finally waking up to the fact that politicians have been screwing the working person all along. Too many people had taken the attitude that they could do nothing to change anything and that’s just the way it was. Oblowme picked up a lot of those voters his FIRST time, but lost a goodly number the 2nd time. He lost black folks that worked and paid taxes too. If the repubs had of had any decent candidate at all in ’08 or ’12 it may have been a different outcome.

    I don’t give a flying phuque at a rolling donut about Trumps tax return or his lewd, crude, or socially unacceptable personality. The man is trying to do what he said he would do and my economic outlook is better than it has been in years. IMO, Trump’s election slowed down the rapid descent of our Republic.

      KOB I think lots of us voted against Clinton vice voting for Trump.

      In 2008 Obama was voted in because he was the candidate of change. Mostly what I saw in his two terms was the status quo of the Washington insiders.

      Trump appears to be the real candidate of change and it really seems to frighten the professional pols.

      Trump isn’t the one They wanted.

      Now, they’re just sore losers.

      Tough bananas.

        Too bad so sad…
        Tell my Mom, tell my Dad….
        That’s the way it goes…..
        First your money…
        Then your clothes !!!

        It’s been a gas to watch these clowns here in Austin.
        The week after the election they had multiple demonstrations downtown !!!!
        Screaming at the sky all over the place !!!
        Truly a gas to watch !!!!!

          I’ve never had the pleasure of watching it in person, but I’ve enjoyed amny a beer and some Nachos while watching videos of them! COme to think of it, how many videos exist of Conservatives rioting, cussing, looting and/or screeching at the sky when 0bama was elected and reelected? Come to think of it, given how big of a RINO Romney has turned out to be, maybe we were better off with four more years of Jug-Ears until we ended up with President Trump?

    IMHO it’s just TARDOs and RETARDOs parading their true colors!

    I don’t know who wrote this, but they kept spelling “Bidet” with an “n”. 🙂

  4. OWB says:

    Yep. Well said, Poe.

    Unfortunately, the same old same old has worked pretty well for them for the past hundred years, so it is not likely that the lefties will change any time soon. Or at least not until they are forced into it.

    Hypocrisy, double standards, and lies are standard fare for them. The sad reality is that we would not be in this pitiful place without the cooperation of both parties and the willful ignorance of too many citizens.

    We may yet survive because of all the folks of ordinary circumstances who are finally awakening to what has been done to them by the swamp critters whose only concern has been the acquisition and maintenance of power.

    Congrats on Biden becoming an illegitimate grandad.

        I haven’t been keeping track of the list of Dem. Presidential candidates but I’m pretty sure Hunter ain’t one of them.

    • Slow Joe says:

      If that Hunter dude were Trump’s son instead of Biden’s….

      Nothing says lovin’ like being your girl’s baby daddy because you are both too stupid to understand how birth control works. Who says those Ivy League educations don’t prove how really smart you are.

  6. Slow Joe says:

    The one thing all American socialists have in common, is that they all expect to be part of the ruling elite.

    I got news for them…

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Yeah… as I recall, Stalin killed off everyone he saw as a possible threat, including all the senior officers of the Russian Army. Made them dig their own graves and then BANG! They were executed and buried.

      Stalin was at least consistent in what he did.

      • SFC D says:

        Che Guevara concurs.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        Typical of the useful idiots of socialism, they think they’ll take their place in the elite and end up in mass graves, take a look at what Hitler and the Nazi Party did with their SA, the “Sturmabteilung” or “Brown Shirts” as soon as they were no longer deemed useful add replaced by the SS!

      Are you saying your truth organ is firmly and rigidly in support of Bernie? Maybe you can get up a “Go Bernie” group among three of the commenters here.
