Nuclear Option Being Considered to Remove Biden as Nominee as Multiple Candidates Surface

E.Rowell:  There are two main issues at work here:  1. Determining and [the Constitutional procedure for] dealing with Biden’s incapacity to function as President and 2. The fact that it is too late for any candidate other than Biden to appear on the remaining state primary democrat ballots including using the write-in option.  The latest date at which a new candidate could appear on the ballot for many states was December 2023.

An explosive report claims that multiple Democrats are considering dumping Old Joe Biden after a damaging DOJ report concluded that he is “an elderly man with a poor memory” and “diminished faculties.”As the Gateway Pundit’s Cristina Laila previously revealed, Special Counsel Robert Hur concluded that Biden “willfully retained” classified information but declined to charge him.But the Justice Department defended not bringing charges against Biden because he’s a “sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.” Translation: Biden is not guilty because he is suffering from dementia and has no clue what he is doing.Biden then raised more alarms at a press conference when he called Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi the “President of Mexico” and blew up at a reporter who questioned his mental acuity.

Now, the Daily Mail reports there is a movement with the Democratic Party to do the sensible thing and replace Biden as their Presidential candidate at the August convention in Chicago. If true, this would prove quite a twist.

From The Daily Mail :

Democrat insiders say it is now ‘panic time’ after a blockbuster Justice Department report concluded Joe Biden has ‘diminished faculties’ and is an ‘elderly man with a poor memory’.

Increasingly, behind the scenes, a nuclear option is being considered to remove the 81-year-old president as the Democrat nominee at the party’s convention in Chicago in August.

The leading candidates to replace him include California Governor Gavin Newsom and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

The paper goes on to mention Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker and Michelle Obama as well. Interestingly, Kamala Harris’s name does not come up.

The likely reason no one is talking about Harris is that her favorability ratings are even worse than Biden’s. Moreover, she has her own issues regarding gaffes and questions regarding her mental state.

As far as Michelle Obama goes, TGP has revealed that a plan has reportedly emerged to throw Old Joe under the bus and it is supposed to happen at the convention as well. Her husband, Barack, is also allegedly involved in the scheme.

A former senior Democrat White House official who worked with Biden, predicted in an interview with The Daily Mail that more Democrat voices would speak out soon.

I think it is now panic time. Biden should not be our standard bearer.

He looked like a deer stuck in the headlights last night. There isn’t enough gas in the tank for another four-and-a-half years. Ultimately, we’re going to see more prominent Democrats saying the quiet part out loud.

It’s increasingly clear we have a deeply flawed candidate. Democracy is in the balance, and this is not a smart path for our party.

  1. J.D. Vance on Biden’s possible replacement:

    The “will Biden be replaced on the ballot?” question is a good proxy for what conservative believe about our elites.

    If you think our elites are mostly midwits who are motivated by status anxiety, the Dems are probably stuck with Biden.

    If you think our elites are evil super geniuses, maybe the Dems can replace Biden with Michelle Obama or Gavin Newsom.

    I know a lot of these people. My vote is for the midwits. It’s Trump v. Biden for 2024.

    An interesting perspective on the nature of those wielding power in Washington, though I am not sure that Vance’s conclusion is correct. Time will tell.

  2. It serves them right. History will never forgive them. They had a deal all settled in Turkey in April 2022 and Biden and Johnson achieved the deaths of must be a million human beings by scuttling that peace which Putin really desired very much. He is a stoical man.
