Is a puzzlement! (Yul Brynner reference)
Supporting the likely victory of Bidenismo are several groups with seemingly conflicting interests:
The Congressional Democrats; Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Nadler et al. Like all politicians their main concern is the acquisition and retention of power. They act en bloc on the orders of their leaders in whatever might be going on. This was on display yesterday in the Barr hearing in the House. The Democrat members had been instructed to deny Barr an opportunity to answer their questions and they did that with a great deal of posturing and faux pique.
The true leftists; Bernie, Warren, AOC, Wheeler of Portland, the other squaddies, etc. Some of these are members of Congress but their socialist cause is more important to them than their political careers. These folks have the Bernie Bro masses at their backs. They have thus far controlled just about everything in the Biden "program." But, they are not content. Biden does not yet accept "Medicare for all," (universal single payer, not Medicare at all), and he says that rioters should be punished. A senior Bernie staffer said yesterday that voting for Biden is "like eating half a s–t sandwich.
The Marxist revolutionary anarchist groups; BLM and Antifa. These folks are movements rather than hierarchical countrywide structures. Nevertheless, someone or something is supporting them with large sums of money to fund transportation, living costs and logistical arrangements for the purchase and stockpiling of riot supplies. A tent full of these was captured by the Feds near the Portland court house. These groups do not adhere to either party. They want to destroy the existing social, governmental, and financial system, but who can doubt that they favor the Democrats as the "lesser of two weevils?"
The monied leftists in Wall Street and Silicon Valley, they are the financial engine that drives Biden's dream. They recoil in horror from the idea of Warren and AOC playing a significant role in a Biden government.
The Biden coven of VP possibilities. The woman chosen is likely to be president after "a decent interval." And what a group! Demings is a former police chief! Warren – Nah! Kamala Harris, half Indian, a formerly ferocious prosecutor and judge in California. She and Demings will go over splendidly with the anarcho-marxist groups of Biden supporters. Susan Rice! A "Black" person from a Portland, Maine family, descended from a West Indian sailor who came ashore there several generations back and settled down with a Down East woman. Well, pilgrims, whomever Joe's minders allow him to have, this person will have interests that compete with those of all the others, including those of Biden himself.
My money is on Rice.
This sounds like fun for the feebleminded. pl
