Unethical Quote Of The Month: Conservative Blogger Stephen Green

“What I’m hoping for today is an absolute trainwreck of a press conference that will give me weeks of Insanity Wrap material.”

PJ Media blogger Stephen Green, waiting to live-blog President Biden’s first press conference.

Despicable. No American should hope to see an American President embarrass himself, because that embarrasses the nation and undermines public trust.

This is the reciprocal hatred I have been seeing in the conservative media for months.

I fervently hope that President Biden dispels suspicions that he is declining mentally and has become a hapless puppet in the hands of the Far Left. I hope he gives all Americans reasons to believe that theories holding that his candidacy was a cynical sham to appeal to moderates while fulfilling a plot to install a radical, socialist, anti-democratic agenda based on group favoritism and anti-white discrimination were false. I hope that the nation sees a strong, alert, wise Chief Executive both dedicated to and capable of being a uniting presence that seeks to serve all Americans and uphold our national values and traditions.

I also hope to backflip down the street like Mary-Lou Retton….

  1. I hope to be able to accurately assess the mental state and capabilities of the President. I hope we are not presented with a false picture of his performance by cutting off questions with ‘technical difficulties’, using green-screens or other video editing to manufacture a performance, or using an earpiece to keep him focused and enhance his speech. Hiding the problem will only make it worse. If Biden is only a figurehead (which seems pretty likely at this point), we need to know. We should have a right to know who our leaders are.

    • Keeping him drugged like John Gill is the most benign theory. Biden can read from a teleprompter, but he can’t speak extemporaneously for long. In light of his recent referring to his Veep as “President Harris” and the news that this is now known as the “Biden-Harris Administration”, it does make me wonder if he isn’t in on the fix to ditch the office in a few months to make way for Her Royal Cackleness.

    It’s kind of sad how our genuine hopes and our reality based expectations of the actual world around us don’t usually coincide; but in the end, we continue to fabricate our genuine hopes knowing full well that they’ll be trashed by the reality in which we live.

    There’s an old saying that, “insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.”

    Then again, “life without hope is a voyage no compass”.

    What are we to do when what we do over the long haul is proven not to make much sense?

  3. So far, Biden has been coming off as lucid. That said, this is obviously a handpicked (and small) gaggle, and the order in which they’re called is clearly pre-planned. I find it hard to believe the questions weren’t submitted in advance, either.

    • I have no doubt they were submitted in advance. Biden doesn’t appear to have the ability to speak extemporaneously for long. The minute he trails off or looks confused, they end the Q&A.

  4. I haven’t seen it, but my hope is that the truth, whatever it might be, is obvious. If he’s fine, better to show it like that to put him in a position of strength. If he’s not, then have him obviously not, so everyone knows what is actually going on behind the scenes.

    • Unfortunately, Alex, this one left no way to tell either way. It was obvious that the reporter pool was extremely small and their order of questioning was pre-determined. I personally have little doubt that they were pre-screened. The questions themselves tended towards softballs and a few were downright sycophancy. The “hard questions,” especially those related to the border crisis, weren’t particularly challenging.

      Biden himself was reasonably on his game. No major gaffes, in fact, only a couple of modest stumbles, and those weren’t especially glaring.

      Trump, for all of his other foibles, genuinely enjoyed bantering the reporters in a very impromptu – often unscheduled – way. I am left with no doubt that this was stage managed to the limits possible. So: there were no obvious mistakes on Biden’s part. But neither was there any evidence of spontaneity. With regard to his actual mental status, we know no more now than we did yesterday. He could be just fine. Or he could be falling apart. This presser didn’t suggest either conclusion.

      • But my God, AIM, the little I could stand to sit through was STULTIFYING! If he wasn’t comatose, I quickly became so and shut it off. Completely stage managed. I bet they even rehearsed his answers to the pre-released questions.

        • Even if Biden wasn’t potentially senile, I wouldn’t expect anything else from the Democrats at this point. As long as the press is cooperative, why wouldn’t they control as much of the setting as possible?

      • The fact that they felt the need to script it so precisely is quite telling. Joe Biden from a decade ago could have easily done a press conference without all the rigidly choreography. That tells me all I need to know about his current abilities and the confidence his people have in his mental faculties. Sure, he was never the sharpest tack in the box, but he was reasonably able to understand questions and formulate (or plagiarize) answers on the fly.

        I suspect we won’t see hide nor hair of him until at least Monday. That, too, will be an indicator of how much work it is for him to stay focused for an hour in front of the cameras.

        • As may be. I doubt 1% of the nation actually watched the presser. For me, it raised many more questions than it answered – about Biden, about the no-doubt hand-picked reporters deigned worthy of answering questions.

          What matters in this is the performance, including the soliloquies, which he actually managed almost competently. Such soliloquies are one of the ways politicians run out the clock.

          There was enough in his performance to give his faithful a reason for hope; enough in it to not dispel doubts among his critics. If one focused only on the substance (what little of it there was) of his answers, the conclusions is obvious,

          He either believes this shit or he’s too far gone to know. We’re fucked either way.

            • Yes, I saw that. It was far and away his worst moment. However, that’s 15 seconds out of an hour, and for most of the hour he was clear, if only reciting leftie talking points. Had there been five occasions such as this one, that would be one thing. But basing conclusions of Joe losing it from that one clip would be as silly as basing conclusions of his him and vigor from the scene of him striding confidently to the podium.

                • Steve, you miss my point. I personally believe that Biden is only barely holding it together. I further believe this so-called “press conference” was stage managed and scripted to the nines.

                  My point centers on APPEARANCES. His APPEARANCE was pretty solid for Biden. If Biden HAD had five such moments in that dog-and-pony show, even the most TDS-infected boobs out there would probably start thinking “uh-oh… what have we done?”

                  This event will change nothing. Those thinking Joe is losing it will continue to think so. Those who believe he’s large and in charge saw nothing to change their minds. And that was my point. Nothing more.

              • Even with cheat-sheets of pre-set answers, he was often vague and stumbling. His comments on the border crisis was a dog’s breakfast of nonsense attempts to shift blame to Trump

  5. Biden appeared to have a book of answers that he flipped through while taking (pre-arranged?) questions from pre-selected individuals (not the Fox guy, of course). He still got stymied trying to deal with follow-ups.

    No questions asked on the breaking story of Hunter Biden having lied about drug use on the ATF 4473 form (a felony) when purchasing a revolver in 2018. This wouldn’t necessarily be on Joe, except for reports that Secret Service agents showed up at the dealer and tried to confiscate the form after an investigation was begun when it became known that Hunter’s wife threw the firearm in a trash receptacle near a high school, and it went missing. No Secret Service agents should have been involved in this….except perhaps to facilitate a cover-up for a certain ex-VP.

  6. Biden has pulled off an interesting trick. Everyone American is so busy examining him for signs of dementia, that they ignore the content of what he says. He can exaggerate, denigrate and lie as much as he pleases, and no one examines the content of what he says because all they care about is proving he is senile (or proving he is the best president ever because he didn’t sound senile for 40 minutes). He tells the right lies, stuttering the whole time, and mainstream (I.e. leftist) media lumps praise on his head by the wheel barrel. Conservative media points out the meandering nature of his statements and the parts he fumbles, trying to prove he is senile. Whatever he actually says is irrelevant if it sort of made sense, because dementia was not provable.

    He IS senile. Everyone knows it. Except (POSSIBLY) leftist Americans.

    The entire rest of the world, including China and Russia, know he is senile. It isn’t a question to the world. The international media is calling him senile. Sky News in Australia states it as a fact. Korea fires short-range missiles, China threatens Taiwan with takeover, and Putin just challenged Biden to an interview duel. Why are we pretending?

    Proving Biden is senile to leftists is a waste of time. His weakness is granting carte blanche to America’s enemies, and you don’t need to observe Biden to ascertain this. You can observe the actions and statements of China and Russia to do that.

    The open disdain of the media towards the voters, and the acceptance of the disdain, is appalling. The media ignore reality and promote propaganda because they can, and Americans let them. The narrative is reality, and reality is narrative. Nothing else matters. China and Russia say we are no longer a super power and America blinks because the narrative doesn’t actually contain any relevant data and the narrative is all that matters.

    The world isn’t examining scripted theatre to decide what to do. Why is everyone pretending America must do examine it ?
