Now NYTimes turns to Anonymous Source to serve as Biden's replacement....

Unable to locate a man, woman or child to declare their candidacy for the Democratic Presidential Candidate, the Times finally locates an anonymous official to declare his interest. Apparently undeterred at the possibility that any of the 50 states would list the candidate, without any further identification on a ballot, the New York mega-media giant continues to run an ever evolving headline on it's Website's front page declaring a huge movement looking to put the anonymous Candidate on the Democratic Ticket.

Ignoring the GOP 's lack of honest, young, articulate police-record free candidate for President, the elite newspaper is advocating for a nameless replacement for the experienced Biden who simply wants to continue to serve the American Public with decent Healthcare, availability of jobs and steady hand joining with the other free countries of the world in combating repressive countries which are feeling free to invade their neighbors.

Fear that Biden will lose to Trump come November, the Times apparently is banking on a nameless person, even avoiding mention of what sex, to carry the Democrats to victory. One Editor put it this way: " If the people can imagine the perfect person to be president and beat Trump, why cloud the question with an introduction of an actual candidate'"

All indications are the Headline will change in the next couple of hours, but you can be sure "Some Democrats, Somewhere, are unhappy with the situation."

From the times: 10:00 PM, July 6, 2024:

"After watching Mr. Biden in private, in public and while traveling with him, the official said they no longer believed the president had what it took to campaign in a vigorous way and defeat Donald J. Trump. The official, who insisted on anonymity in order to continue serving, said Mr. Biden had steadily showed more signs of his age in recent months, including speaking more slowly, haltingly and quietly, as well as appearing more fatigued in private."

Stay Tuned!

NYTimes apparently can't find even one Dem Convention Delegate wanting to replace Biden.

This short article gets a sentence or two from about 10 Delegates all in support of Biden. Headlines the Story "These Obscure Democrats Could Soon become Kingmakers"!

I don't think the media's drumming out Biden is going anywhere.

There is this: Biden has displaced Trump as the main headline subject for July so far. If the adage "All press attention is good, no matter the story" has any validity, we will see Biden gaining in this horse race talk soon.

I voted for Biden in the primary. No one has texted, called or emailed me asking me to withdraw my vote and cast it for

Some one else. I've read 50 opinions and news articles about how a lot of Democrats are calling for Biden to step down. None have suggested an alternative nor shown support for any one or even named a person who is willing step up to take on the position of Democratic Presidential Candidate for 2024. Even those at the NYTimes that seem to want Biden to step down have not come forth with a actual person saying they want to be the one to beat Trump.

WTF?

Take a look at the list of people asking that Biden step down.

The New York Times, a major source of anti-old man- Biden media outrage, has put up a list of who is actually calling publicly for Biden to step down.

If this is the best they can do, I suggest this to be the last posting about the possibility on DU

Read it and ask, like me: WTF? Marianne Williamson?

Heather Cox Richardson on PBS News Hour lays out the implications of the Supreme's Decision.

Is there anybody who would not support a constitutional amendment to put this decision back in the box? Biden needs to show the MAGA Trump supporters the danger inherent in a decision that releases the President from the LAW.

Little girl faints upon hearing the Governor of Louisianna is mandating the 10 Commandments in Class rooms.

Did you catch the video of the ceremony? Its here: at 10:00 minutes into the PBS news Hour.



Then the NY Times shows a front page (of website) picture without the young lady and rearranged supporters. Weird.

Did you see this NY Times article about the lawlessness in the West Bank?

Here's a gift of paywall-less link. It's lengthy but uses official Israelis accounts for most of its sources. Very disturbing to read the 50 year history of the process.

Pecker seems fearless of Trump and tells all. Trump has no gag busting raves about Pecker.

Pecker must know a lot he could tell about Trump if he wanted to.

Enjoy these times that Trump is required to be in court over the next couple of weeks.

It is torture for the guy who, up until now, hasn't had to get out of bed until noon and who has spent his time doing nothing more than gripe.

These 6 weeks will be for him like a confinement requirement to watch a bad Court TV show for 6 hours a day with no chance to even rave to his fellow viewers.

This is likely the only punishment Trump will receive for any of his criminal cases before the November Election. After than, win or lose, will the Government even continue the cases? Will he ever serve any jail time?

For those of us who need to see the man suffer even a bit of displeasure because of his actions and total disregard for the rule of law, we need to take in these days of confinement to his days in court, and enjoy them for all they are worth.

Here's a NYTimes opinion piece about Trumps chances of serving any time for any of this criminal deeds. I'm sharing it with this link so there should be no PayWall in keep you from getting informed.
