We’ve thought about this before

Democrats desperately scrambling to find a potential successor to Joe Biden in 2024 are whispering about a potential nuclear option that could see Kamal Harris, the current Vice President, nominated to the Supreme Court.

While the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumour mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.

And come to the conclusion that there’s nothing in it for Ms. Harris. She’s a more than reasonable chance of inheriting that Presidency, so why move? Further, there’s a certain doubt as to whether the current Senate would approve a successor as VP. Why would Repubs vote in someone less disastrous for the Dems?

And, of course, there might even be some Dems who think the Supreme Court to be a real and important thing and not a place to boot the incompetent on the Peter Principle.

BTW, an interesting commentary on politics as a way of running things. That KH is that heartbeat away from doing so, isn’t it?

  1. 1) Kamala resigns from VP on the basis that the cackle is evidence of mental illness
    2) Biden nominates Hilary as VP
    3) Six months later, Biden resigns on grounds of ill health

  2. can’t resist knobbling tendencies. Just find someone decent out of 1/2 of the population where every other person from class captain,to sheriff, to judge, to chief prosecutor, to school board, state and federal houses has run for an election. If she’s so bad then put them up against kamala in the noms watch them win – or is it that she’s a jeremy – popular with their party not with the electorate? Or is it that Joe really is on the way out, and she’s going to get the big P which would be v difficult to stop her being the candidate.

  3. I don’t see how KH is unelecrable. They know how to do it now, so they’ll just rig the election again and the supine press and courts will fall in line.

    Surely
    (1) Kamala commits suicide in a completely non-suspicious fashion
    (2) Hillary nominated as veep
    (3) Biden has a not-at-all-suspicious heart attack

  5. @Ottokring

    Yes, the speed with which the blatant fraud that “elected” somebody whose unfitness to be president is screamingly obvious fell down the memory hole with – even for them – indecent haste.

    It really doesn’t matter who is “president”, but whether we will ever find out who really is pulling the strings.

  6. (2) Hillary nominated as veep
    (3) Biden has a not-at-all-suspicious heart attack

    Out of the frying pan into hellfire

  7. 1. Kamala appoints new hair stylist – Hilaria Clontini.

    2. Electrocutes self while using hairdryer in bath.

    3. Biden accidentally brutally stabs himdelf while shaving.

  8. Dunno. I’ve mentioned before, to the point of being a boring twat, that you can no longer understand the machinations of the DC regime through the traditional tools we used to apply to high trust societies. Because it’s a incredibly gay and extremely insular massively corrupt oligarchy that rules through fear and fraud. We need the science of Kremlinology.

    To what extent “Biden” or “Kamala” even exist as political actors – as opposed to actors pretending to make political decisions – is questionable. Biden is very obviously mentally and physically incontinent, if he weren’t an evil man you’d feel sorry for him being used as a geriatric flesh puppet in his twilight years. Kamala is a 105 IQ midwit whose political career is entirely based on knowing which patrons and donors to service, and being gracious enough to swallow.

    Neither of these people are fit to make any sort of decision more profound than which flavour of jello pudding to have with dinner / what shade of lipstick best complements Willie Brown’s brown willy. But then that’s the point – they’re just pitchmen and maitre d’s for the people who actually make decisions. This has been, unlike Kamala’s mentors, a long time coming – Obama and Dubya were also very clearly none-too-bright skin golems jerked around by Goldman Sachs / Lockheed Martin / AIPAC etc.

    What it portends that the regime is either running out of plausible people to act as door greeters and MC’s, or no longer cares as much to pretend that this grotesque circus of demented looters and perverts has anything to do with democracy or actual Americans, I don’t know. But the solution is a plurality of magnificent obligate carnivores with four enormous paws and a tufted tail.

  9. When the senate votes for the new VP, who gets the deciding vote?

    Technically, nobody. The Republicans can keep it boiling for a while and force someone annoying for the Dems and good for the country. It’s Tulsi’s if she wants it.

    The Dems have been floating the idea that without the tie breaking vote it should be decided by both houses. A non constitutional invention but you never know nowadays.

  10. BiNK (GP),

    You’re kidding, right?

    I mean, there’s some twattishness to Trump, but in terms of the effect on my life in the UK, it makes zero difference. And the sheer entertainment value of the lefty meltdown if he gets elected is worth it.

  11. For the first time in my life (and I’m 59) I find myself looking at the world of woke/climate fear/covid fear/race baiting and feeling that things in the future are going to get worse, not better.

    BoM4,

    Trump was happy to go along with lockdowns, masks, and the rest of the unsceintific, ineffective, disproportionate bullshit. De Santis clearly will not be. If you think, or hope, this will be all over by the time of the next US presidential election, it won’t.

    I really don’t care. The laws that affect Ohio don’t affect Wiltshire. But Trump will be entertaining.

  14. Steve,

    The thing at this point is that politics and government really don’t matter much. There was a time when you needed serious people. You look back to the 70s and 80s in the UK, and not just Mrs Thatch and Normo Tebbs, but even many people in the Labour Party. It felt like there were generally grown-ups running the place. We had wars and coups almost every week somewhere in the world. We had crime and poverty all over the place. Our politicians did things like built nuclear power stations, airports and hundreds of miles of motorways that improved people’s lives. Cops were stopping robbers rather than attending bi-curious cocklopper seminars, the BBC made popular programmes that people liked. The response to terrorism wasn’t bleating about how Sinn Fein were a peaceful organisation.

    It’s why you can have these clowns running the show now. I mean, look at them. Ed Milliband and Jeremy Corbyn leading the opposition. James Callaghan might have had some problems, but at least he could pass a Voight-Kampff test. The military and the police are a joke, but who cares? Where’s the crime? Where’s the wars? Education is a joke, but most people just want a babysitting service. Most parents don’t seem to care if their kids learn anything useful in the years they spend in class. Kids are probably learning more useful things when they get home and watch YouTube. The NHS will probably wither soon as so many people are switching to private healthcare after they saw how useless it was during Covid and that’ll be something else that the politicians don’t do.

  15. Trump will be 78 at the next election; if he wins he’ll be 83 when he leaves office. Trump’s father developed dementia at age 85.

    Trump already lost to Joe Biden, a ridiculous opponent. And to a great many voters, he was bad loser.

    Trump has demonstrated poor personnel decisions. Among many others, Miley and Fauci were clearly hostile and shite, and he ignored advice to get rid of them.

    Trump was finally captured by the state corporatists, going against his own stated instincts and ceding power to the health bloc to the detriment of the country.

    He’s problematic. If there was an election now against the current twats I think he’d win. But the election is years away and it’s a much tougher call to see that. And this assumes they don’t legally destroy him in the meantime.

  16. Getting back to the actual point, all this ruminating about Supreme Court nominations is moot. Kamala is the VP with no strings attached. As long as she does nothing to risk impeachment she cannot be removed by legal means. Even if they printed her history of scandals and incompetence on the front page of the New York Times in an effort to shame her out of the job, she’s shameless (q.v. antics with Willie Brown’s willy).

    I can’t stand the woman, but Dementia Joe brought her onto the ticket and, election fraud aside, she’s the sitting tenant of the VP-ship. All Kamala has to do is sit tight and say nothing (especially about Dementia Joe’s obvious senility) and the presidency might easily fall into her lap, a role that she would otherwise fail to be elected to, no matter how many of the US dead “vote Democrat” or however many ballot boxes get stuffed behind Republican backs.

    She can’t start pushing the 25th Amendment on her own because there are too many things that could go wrong that route. Far better to leave that to Pelosi and others (because you know that aged old hag is salivating for the presidency herself) and chances are they’ll still be forced to hand her the presidency if they get rid of Dementia Joe because that’s the way the process is setup.

    I’m guessing some of them wish they’d never bothered to throw the election to get Dementia Joe infraudulated in the first damn place. After all, another 4 years of Trump hampered by TDS, COVID and a biased media wouldn’t have been that hard to bare.

  17. Kamala is the VP with no strings attached.

    Yes, this was said last time. She just has to sit tight. And if the Dems do try shenanigans to oust her, she has the race card and very probably some dirt on them.

    After all, another 4 years of Trump hampered by TDS, COVID and a biased media wouldn’t have been that hard to bare.

    Oh, I think they were terrified of another Trump term. He was that close to exposing / destroying a great many rotten apples.

  18. I really don’t care. The laws that affect Ohio don’t affect Wiltshire. But Trump will be entertaining.

    The current clown car is absolutely hilarious; genuine laugh-out-loud comedy gold. It’s also the reason it’s nearly £1.50 a litre on Wiltshire forecourts.
    .

    Ed Milliband and Jeremy Corbyn leading the opposition.

    They’re not.

    NHS will probably wither soon as so many people are switching to private healthcare . . .

    The actual current leader of the opposition, neck and neck in the polls, is openly talking about banning private health care. You are mistaken if you think these things don’t matter – and matter now.

    Where’s the crime? Where’s the wars?

    Just because you can’t see the Gods of the Copybook Headings it doesn’t mean they’re not on their way with terror and slaughter.

  19. PJF,

    “The actual current leader of the opposition, neck and neck in the polls, is openly talking about banning private health care. You are mistaken if you think these things don’t matter – and matter now.”

    This is the sort of thing I’m talking about. There was a time when I took politicians announcements fairly seriously, because when they said it, they’d already had a good think about it. Most of it now is just PR. Throwing some promises to keep various morons on board with a party or a leader for a bit longer.

    There is no way that a Labour government will ban private healthcare. This is just noise for the commies in the Labour Party to stop them from kicking him out as leader. It isn’t something the voters care about much, and would push up waiting lists and cost the public a fortune as people wanted NHS treatment.

    And it’s the same when the tories talk tough on illegal immigration, or introduce ID for porn, or say that they’re going to look after the troops. It’s just to sound good. They aren’t going to do anything. Maybe make some speeches, hold a few photo ops, but they don’t even have a solution to the problem.

  20. Bloke in North Dorset

    The Dems have been floating the idea that without the tie breaking vote it should be decided by both houses. A non constitutional invention but you never know nowadays.

    SCOTUS came up with Qualified Immunity out of whole cloth and stretched its self in Roe v Wade, so this one should be a no brainer.

    “The laws that affect Ohio don’t affect Wiltshire. ”

    Apart from Sweden, the only places that have been allowed to be control groups in this dreadful experiment are there because of US federalism. The evidence of the failure of the apocalypse to arrive in Florida, Texas, North Dakota and other places cannot be ignored indefinitely. Without them, then the globalist coup (if that is what it is, I don’t know) would be signed, sealed and delivered already.

  22. “The laws that affect Ohio don’t affect Wiltshire.”

    But they would, in the interconnected world we live in nowadays. If a US President (such as De Santis) instituted a sweeping roll back of all covid legislation in the US, and the sky didn’t fall in, as it wouldn’t, then it can’t be ignored by every other politician around the world. A small country like Sweden can be either not mentioned by the media (or pointed at if things are looking grim) but the US going for freedom, and it working, cannot be pushed under the carpet. It would remove a massive flank of protection from our own rulers – they would have to decide to keep controls when the whole world can see with their own eyes that they are not necessary.

    I’m with BiNK(GP), De Santis has shown he’s prepared to actively fight back against the covid control freaks, whereas Trump didn’t. He went along with everyone else in the headlong rush towards totalitarianism. Trump winning in 2024 would be great comedy, it would cause a Leftist meltdown for sure. But would he actually achieve anything of great significance, other than being the cause of many Leftist aneurisms? De Santis on the other hand might actually do something. He has in Florida, so is the better bet for the White House, and by proxy for the cause of freedom around the world IMO.
