Has Slow Joe The Gaff Machine Biden declared war on Mayor Pete?
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Monday claimed fellow Democratic 2020 candidate Pete Buttigieg “stole” his health care plan.
Biden spoke to reporters in Iowa about the South Bend, Ind., mayor’s “Medicare for All Who Want It” health care plan, saying “He stole it” from the Biden campaign, Politico reported.
Reporters asked Biden about Buttigieg’s attempt to appeal to the former vice president’s moderate Democratic electorate. Biden insisted Buttigieg’s health care proposal was his own idea and downplayed the Indiana mayor’s growing support. “No, he doesn’t have the enthusiasm and the moderate—moderate plan,” Biden said. “It’s the Biden plan.”
“What would you have done to me? You would have torn my ears off,” Biden added. “I would be a plagiarizing, no good, old man who did bum bum bum.”
Biden himself has faced accusations of plagiarism, both in the 2020 primary and during his first run for the presidency in 1988. His campaign’s climate change proposals appeared to have lifted language from climate activism organizations without attribution this June. In 1988, the then-senator copied phrases from a British Labour Party politician’s speech.
Biden also went after Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) on Monday, who was tied with the former vice president in a Des Moines Register/CNN poll last month. Biden dismissed Warren’s strong polling in New Hampshire.
“Look at the polling everywhere. Tell me. Tell me where the polling has manifested itself,” Biden said. “She lives in Massachusetts, she’s invested millions and millions of dollars in New Hampshire, why shouldn’t she be known there?”
Both Buttigieg and Warren’s campaigns pushed back on Biden’s comments. Buttigieg’s campaign claimed that the South Bend mayor discussed his health care plan in February, two months before Biden jumped into the Democratic primary. Warren’s campaign spokesman, Chris Hayden, told Politico that the “campaign is not on air in New Hampshire” and “didn’t run any TV ads during her 2018 re-election.”
U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Vice President Joe Biden is known as a gaffe machine. He regularly produces headline inducing gaffes. How much of this is simply the changing media landscape is uncertain. It may be many Progressive politicians produced copious gaffes, but they were simply not reported to the American people.
John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson’s industrial level womanizing and promiscuity were well known in Washington, D.C. The American public was kept in the dark for decades.
While saying he supports the Second Amendment, Biden called the absolutist arguments of some gun-rights supporters “bizarre.” Noting people can’t own machine guns or bazookas, Biden said, “Why should we allow people to have military-style weapons including pistols with 9-mm bullets and can hold 10 or more rounds?”
Military-style pistols 9mm and more, which hold 10 or more rounds, and which fire a shot with every pull of the trigger, have been available for over 160 years. The Chaineux double-action revolver was patented in 1853; the LeMat revolver held 9 rounds of .42 caliber (10.5mm), and 1 of 20 gauge (15mm), and was used in the Civil War. The C96 Mauser was chambered in 9mm in 1916. They are not a new phenomenon, and for most of that period were essentially unregulated, in much of Europe until after WWI, in the United States to the present day.
They were commonly available in England until after WWI. In England, crime was much lower and murder far less common when those firearms were easily available, including homicide with firearms and mass murder. It is clear 9mm pistols, which hold 10 rounds or more, are not a cause of crime and mass murder, or, at a minimum, not a significant cause.
There are several answers to Biden’s question: Why allow them?
Because not allowing them is a violation of the Constitution and the rule of law.
Because not allowing them violates the principle that the federal government is limited in what it may do, under the 9th and 10th Amendments.
Because not allowing them is bad policy based on emotional simplicities.
Because not allowing them is likely to invite a backlash ranging from civil disobedience to black markets, to civil war, any one of which is far worse than the problems mentioned.
Because there is no demonstrable harm associated with their legal possession and use, which is not offset by a greater good.
Far-left Democrat Vice President Biden continues:
He called the anxiety among young people over being shot in school these days “overwhelming” and “not just in tough neighborhoods but in great neighborhoods like this.”
Yes, the anxiety level is high, not because of the existence and common availability of such pistols; rather because of the hype and hysteria promulgated by the Progressive media. In the media’s unhinged desire to ban citizen ownership of common guns, there is much emotion, but little logic. There is much evidence the media hype is far more responsible for the current uptick in mass killing at schools, than the availability of guns.
Biden continues his irrational tirade, apparently believing the Progressive media will cover for his silliness, as it has for decades.
Mentioning his own shotgun ownership, Biden talked about Delaware goose-hunting restrictions that limit hunters to three shotgun shells. “We protect geese from Canada more than we do people,” he said.
Nationwide restrictions on shotgun hunting magazines were put in place, nationally, in 1937. They were a response to declining populations of waterfowl, both ducks and geese. The international treaty with Mexico was ratified in 1936. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt had issued emergency orders to protect migratory waterfowl in 1934, 1935, and 1936. From a letter by J.N. Darling, to FDR, on 4 February, 1935:
A short open season, while not so productive of immediate increase in the duck population as a closed season may be so regulated as to contribute more permanent results in the long haul toward our final objective, if by prohibiting all artificial baiting, prohibiting the use of automatics and repeaters of more than three-shell capacity, and reducing live decoys to a minimum, the hunting of migratory waterfowl may be permanently rid of those pernicious practices which have been responsible for the heavy slaughter and commercialization of the sport.
Following Biden’s inappropriate comparison of people to geese, we should have unlimited hunting for humans, and not reduce magazine capacity of the instruments used until human populations have been reduced by 90% or more in all of North America. We should have butchered humans carcasses sold in grocery stores; we should be selling people to farmers to raise for human consumption. Given recent leftist suggestions about the benefits of cannibalism, a sarcasm tag is in order.
The silliness of the comparison is so egregious, it serves as a reminder of the irrationality of the entire debate. I am reminded of a roommate in my freshman year in college, who was offended by deer hunting. He said deer should be given rifles to even the odds. I would have been happy for him to leave dozens of rifles scattered about the woods, available for easy pick-up.
The idea that deer should be armed to “even the odds” when hunting them is absurd. Deer are not people. Humans are qualitatively different from animals.
It is not surprising modern leftists have routinely equated humans and animals. It explains much of the willingness of the Left to slaughter vast numbers of humans.

Hey, Slow Joe The Gaff Machine Biden stick your plan up your goofy ass.
Part of Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden’s overarching gun control plan is to pay AR-15 owners to surrender their rifles or allow them to keep the guns, as long as they register them with the government.
Biden’s plan would apply not only to AR-15s but also to AK-47s, variants of both rifles, and other firearms that Democrats label as “assault weapons.” The call to surrender or register would also apply to “high capacity” magazines.
Biden’s campaign site indicates he will give those who “possess assault weapons or high-capacity magazines two options: sell the weapons to the government, or register them under the National Firearms Act.”
This plan to buyback or register AR-15s appears on the campaign site just paragraphs after spelling out Biden’s position that the Second Amendment “is limited.”
The buyback or register aspect of Biden’s plan is followed by his pledge to close the “gun show and online gun sales loophole,” the “boyfriend loophole,” the “hate crime loophole,” the “Charleston loophole,” and the “fugitive from justice loophole.”
The campaign site also stresses Biden’s intention to resurrect the Social Security gun ban, which President Trump repealed February 28, 2017.
Slow Joe the Gaff Machine Biden is a mental midget without the ability to have an original thought.
Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden suggested owners need to register ammunition magazines while speaking at a gun control forum organized by MSNBC and advocacy groups March for Our Lives and Giffords on October 2.
Earlier in the day, Breitbart News reported Biden’s push to register AR-15s then, during the forum, he suggested registration of ammunition magazines as well.
Biden talked of banning the sale and manufacture of “assault weapons.” He then discussed his plan for “assault weapons” that are already in circulation, saying, “Under the Firearms Act of 1934 there was a situation where, when they outlawed machine guns, they said, ‘Okay, you can continue to have the machine gun if you own it, but guess what? You’ve got to let us know you have one.’”
He then said, “I want that for all ‘assault weapons.’ I want that for magazines.”
Biden then contended, “If we know you have one, the likelihood of that ever being used in a commission of a crime, after a voluntary buyback, is highly unlikely.”
Does Princess Fauxachontias have what it takes to put Slow Joe The Gaff Machine Biden down for the full count?
For such a ‘great fighter’, Sleepy Joe is looking punch drunk in the polls right now. Can he even make it past Super Tuesday?
Biden and his supporters are in trouble, and they know it.
They’ve started eyeing a do-or-die option.
His supporters are looking at breaking their ‘no help from Super Pac’ promise, just to keep his run alive.
Mr. Riddle said a final decision about whether to deploy a super PAC for Mr. Biden would be made in “the coming weeks.”
Mr. Biden clearly needs to jolt his campaign, which has lost ground in the early nominating states to Senator Elizabeth Warren, who has been largely unscathed by her rivals. And the vice president’s longtime friends increasingly believe that Ms. Warren’s growing strength — along with Mr. Trump’s offensive — is reason enough to risk the backlash they would get from their opponents and campaign finance reform advocates for creating a group reliant on large contributions. But Mr. Riddle said there had been no final decision on whether to proceed with a super PAC, in part because of this risk. Mr. Biden’s two leading competitors for his party’s nomination, Ms. Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, have made getting big money out of politics a major theme of their campaigns. And Mr. Biden has already drawn criticism for his comparative reliance on wealthy donors to fund his candidacy.
Actual footage of the Biden campaign right now.
And for the joyless, boneheaded media censors in fact-checkerland:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren is surging in the Democratic presidential race, catching or passing early front runner ex-Vice President Joe Biden according to polls from three early caucus and primary states.
The latest, a Monmouth University survey of New Hampshire voters, shows Warren with a 27-25% lead over Biden in the state that holds America’s first presidential primary. Sen. Bernie Sanders, a big winner in 2016, has faded to third at 12%.

Word is, Biden has all but given up on the first two Primaries and is pinning his hopes on Super Tuesday.
The question is, by then, will it already be too late?
William Weld(Rino-MA)is a bigger moron than I remembered he was.
How is asking that Slow Joe The Gaff Machine Biden and his son be investigated for their possible crimes rate a death sentence?
In spite of what Wacky Willie Weld says President Trump does not want Ukraine to interfere in the election but determine if Slow Joe The gaff Machine Biden and son Hunter have committed any crimes.
During Monday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, 2020 Republican presidential candidate former Gov. Bill Weld (R-MA) reacted to the report that President Donald Trump repeatedly urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to look into former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, and his business dealings.
Weld said “it couldn’t be clearer” that what Trump did was “treason pure and simple” because Joe Biden is a presidential candidate.
“Well, obviously, canceling primaries undermines democratic institutions and democratic elections, but that’s far from the deepest high crime the president has committed here,” Weld told host Joe Scarborough. “He’s now acknowledged that in a single phone call right after he suspended $250 million of military aid to Ukraine, he called up the president of Ukraine and pressed him eight times to investigate Joe Biden, who the president thinks is going to be running against him.”
“Talk about pressuring a foreign country to interfere with and control a U.S. election,” he continued. “It couldn’t be clearer, and that’s not just undermining democratic institutions — that is treason. It’s treason pure and simple, and the penalty for treason under the U.S. code is death. That’s the only penalty. The penalty on the Constitution is removal from office, and that might look like a pretty good alternative to the president if he could work out a plea deal.”
How can a scandal involving Slow Joe The Gaff Machine Biden and Ukraine be an impeachable crime for President Trump?
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told members of Congress over the weekend that President Donald Trump’s interest in Joe Biden’s Ukraine scandals could bring about a “new stage of investigation” and ultimately impeachment.
“This violation is about our national security. The Inspector General determined that the matter is ‘urgent’ and therefore we face an emergency that must be addressed immediately,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to lawmakers on Sunday.
“If the Administration persists in blocking this whistleblower from disclosing to Congress a serious possible breach of constitutional duties by the president, they will be entering a grave new chapter of lawlessness which will take us into a whole new stage of investigation,” she continued.
According to an anonymous complaint revealed in reports last week, President Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to look into former vice president Joe Biden’s son — Hunter Biden — and his business dealings in the eastern European country. However, according to CNN, the whistleblower “didn’t have direct knowledge of the communications,” citing an official with knowledge of the matter.
On Sunday, Trump said his conversation with Zelensky was “largely congratulatory,” adding that he did mention how he doesn’t want people like Biden and his son contributing to “the corruption already in the Ukraine.”
Trump, speaking to reporters on the White House lawn before flying to Houston, also said he doesn’t believe the person who reported the call is a “whistleblower,” stating that “you can’t have people doing false alarms like this.”
“When the president speaks to the head of another country, he has to be able to speak to those people and those people don’t want to know that they’re being recorded or that you have a stenographer working,” he said. “You don’t want to have to hear that. You can’t do that to a president and you can’t do that to other countries.”
Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko similarly dismissed the idea of any crime or scandal in Trump’s conversation with Zelensky. “I know what the conversation was about and I think there was no pressure,” Prystaiko told Hromadske, a Ukrainian online broadcast outlet. “There was talk, conversations are different, leaders have the right to discuss any problems that exist. This conversation was long, friendly, and it touched on many questions, sometimes requiring serious answers.”
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Sunday that impeachment may be “the only remedy” as President Trump confirmed he discussed Biden and corruption with Ukraine’s president.
Appearing on CNN’s State of the Union, Schiff said he has been reluctant to join calls to impeach the president, but said the phone call would potentially be “the most profound violation of the presidential oath of office,” during this or any other presidency.
“If the president is essentially withholding military aid at the same time that he is trying to browbeat a foreign leader into doing something illicit that is providing dirt on his opponent during a presidential campaign, then that may be the only remedy that is coequal to the evil that conduct represents,” he said.
