Mask Slippages Dept.

     Generally, the evil among us will strive to disguise their real motives and agendas…usually until the day comes when they feel strong enough to discard all pretense. However, now and then a representative of the totalitarian Left will be moved by the urge to “get a jump” on his comrades:

     One of the founders of Politico admitted that he doesn’t want an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden regarding allegations of sexual assault because it could hurt Biden’s chance to win in 2020.

     A piece from the New York Times published Monday showed published letters to the editor regarding a May 2 piece from the editorial board titled “Investigate Tara Reade’s Allegations.” Reade has accused Biden of sexually assaulting her while she worked as a Senate staffer in the early 1990’s.

     Martin Tolchin, a co-founder of Politico and The Hill as well as a former member of The Times’ Washington bureau, wrote in and admitted that he didn’t want an investigation into the allegation. Tolchin wrote that this was simply because it could damage the chance to beat President Donald Trump, adding that he didn’t even want justice for Reade if her allegation proved true.

     “I totally disagree with this editorial. I don’t want an investigation. I want a coronation of Joe Biden,” Tolchin wrote according to the NYT. “I don’t want justice, whatever that may be. I want a win, the removal of Donald Trump from office, and Mr. Biden is our best chance.”

     This…person isn’t even subtle about it. Power matters more to him than right, wrong, guilt, innocence, and justice rolled together. I wonder what he’d say if asked a pointed question:

Mr. Tolchin: Would you be willing to steal the election through non-citizen voting, ballot manufacturing, ballot harvesting, or other means, should the polling not go the way you prefer?

     Regardless of how he’d reply, I think we all know how he’d feel.

     Remember in November.

"We're after power, and we mean to get it." - Atlas Shrugged

We have an Elite that wants power at any price. We have an Elite that not just thinks they're better, smarter, more noble, more educated than the rest of us... they actively believe that they're doing good by trampling the rule of law, etc., to get that power.

Understand: I love my kids, I would die to protect them... but I look at what's happening in the world and think that it's looking increasingly likely that I will have to do so.

Here, I thought you meant all the people slipping their "covid" masks down to talk or just leave 'em down. :)

I'm just waiting for someone to admit that they're using the Covid scare to coronate Biden.

I'm beginning to think of government as an HOA writ large. The people who want to be on the HOA delight in telling you what color drapes you cannot have. This whole virus thing has been a dose of the uncut heroin of raw power to these types. Everyone from the city council to the senate has had a two month long binge on that dope. They're loving the buzz, and they aren't going to give it up willingly.
