How Joe Biden’s privatization plans helped doom Latin America and fuel the migration crisis

'“Biden is taking credit for doing something constructive to stop the migration crisis and blaming the concentration camps [on the US-Mexico border] on Trump. But it’s Biden’s policies that are driving more people out of Central America and making human rights defenders lives more precarious by defending entities that have no interest in human rights,” explained Adrienne Pine, a professor of anthropology at American University and leading researcher of the social crisis in Honduras, in an interview with The Grayzone.'

@Brand X,
Biden was vice president, not president or congress. His contribution to this was only advice which was not adheared to. Why blame him for the mistakes of the south American governments?

Well then he shouldn't be taking credit for decisions he didn't make...and he is.

Now the Biden campaign has released the trial balloon that their guy will vow to be a one-term president.

Wow! That will get my vote! Very Happy Very Happy


He isn't looking for your vote Finn. He is aiming for mine.

I think Biden's main argument is that he is the guy to get rid of Trump. This message reinforces that.

I like Warren, but I will vote for Biden in the primary if he can convince me that he has the best chance to win in November.

@maxdancona,
That message is a lie of course. Even you must know that.

Unless he dies or appears on TV shitting his diapers he would seek a second term, if only because of the legion of flunkies who will need him to keep the top spot.

BTW - that balloon never flew again.

The funny thing with this is that I have been retired for the last two years or so and I post far less frequently than you with your "civil service" job.

You do so all through the day proving how dedicated you are to the people's business. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

With computer education all teachers have to do is keep the kids off of porn sites. Lots of time to post on political sites.

Conversation is starting to turn toward Biden’s record on Social Security, not a good development for team Biden....

@Brand X,
Barring unforeseen developments, I'll be voting for Sanders in the primaries. But I see a clear path to the nomination for Biden despite my vote.

I won't say the odds are 100% (because they aren't). But if I had to make a guess today as to the probable future nominee, I'd pick Biden as the most likely to win.

That's a shame. Biden hates freedom and civil liberties with a passion matched only by the 9/11 hijackers. But at least it's likely that Trump will defeat him in the general election.

@revelette3,
As Sullenberger said:"A speech disorder is a lot easier to treat than a character defect."

But "Stop. Grow up. Show some decency." seems to be of of range for many.

I want to bottom-line something here.
I know who Joe Biden is.
I’ve alternately been proud of him, disappointed in him, heartened by some things he’s said and stood for, disgusted by other things he’s said and stood for.

I am a sixty one year old black American, and I try to make a practice of trying to know where my demographic (though certainly not a completely homogenous group) generally stands on this or that issue. In other words, I think I have an educated guess about what kinds of responses I’d get when I bring up an issue in the barber shop or men’s breakfast at a holiness church.

I think older black voters trust Joe Biden. They hear all the smears about him. They look at everyone else running for President. They still come down to trusting him enough to vote for him over anyone else.

They hear the cocksure threats from Bernie supporters- that they are selling themselves out for someone who doesn’t care for them like Bernie does. They still have the gall to think they can look at Bernie and Joe and make an informed decision for what’s best for themselves.

If the primary came down to Bernie and Biden today, the vast, vast advantage from the seasoned black voters would go to Joe Biden.

And I don’t see that changing. Bottom line.

@snood,
I honestly wish you guys had a better candidate to support.

Based on the history of the US, I worry when old white men get the support of the minority community. Especially those that have been in politics for such a long time.

What did Biden ever do for minorities during his tenure as a Senator?
Quote:
A review of Biden’s record — which spans 36 years as a U.S. senator and eight as vice president — is, in part, a reminder of how much the Democratic Party itself and the U.S. political system have changed over the last half a century.

Biden opposed school busing for desegregation in the 1970s. He voted for a measure aimed at outlawing gay marriage in the 1990s. He was an ally of the banking and credit card industries.

He chaired the 1991 Clarence Thomas hearings that gave short shrift to the sexual harassment allegations raised by Anita Hill. He backed crime legislation that many blamed for helping fuel an explosion in prison populations. He eulogized Sen. Strom Thurmond (R-S.C.), who rose to prominence as a segregationist. He backed the Iraq war.

That pretty much describes my own feeling. Not great, but better than the rest.
