Klepto Joe

Media Note: I have a new post up at Taki Magazine about the effect of narrative on the ruling class. No, I did not write the head line. I also have a post about a modern classic on the pay site. I will be doing regular content on the SubscribeStar site for the donors going forward. That will be almost exclusively pop culture commentary. I’m working on a way to do the same for PayPal and P.O. Box people.


One of the more famous political dirty tricks is attributed to Lyndon Johnson, who allegedly spread false rumors about an opponent’s life-long habit of enjoying sexual relations with his barnyard animals. When told by one of his campaign aides that no one would believe such a crazy rumor, Johnson allegedly said, “I know, but let’s make the sonofabitch deny it.” That’s the key to a good political trick. It forces the other guy to select between two bad options.

That comes to mind with the Biden scandal. Joe Biden is famously on tape bragging about how he bullied the government of Ukraine. He threatened to withhold a billion in aid money unless they fired a prosecutor Biden did not like. It was the classic bullshitter moment, in which the story is supposed to make the person telling it look like a tough guy who really knows how to handle his business. The audience was supposed to come away thinking that Biden was a man of action that other men feared.

The problem at the time was that there was never any context to the story. Why did the administration think this prosecutor was such a problem that Rambo Joe had to be choppered into to deal with it? Because Biden only appears in front of slobbering sycophants, no one bothered asking any questions at the time. No one in the press looked into the background to see if the story was true. Instead, the media promoted it thinking it helped their guy in some way.

Now we get the leaks from Hunter Biden’s laptop. Those e-mails answer the question that no one bothered asking back when Rambo Joe was bragging about his bullying the Ukrainian government. That prosecutor was investigating Biden’s son, who was in a no-show job paying fifty grand a month. Suddenly, that video of Biden bragging about his prowess takes on a new meaning. He’s not Rambo Joe, righting wrongs around the globe, but Klepto Joe, shaking down foreign governments.

That’s what makes this October Surprise so good. Like the LBJ opponent forced to talk about bestiality rumors, there is no way for the Biden campaign to engage this story that does not look bad. They can say Biden’s bragging about getting the prosecutor was just Joe bullshitting people about his prowess. Or, they can say Biden was just helping his drug addict son avoid jail, but Joe Biden did not get paid to do it. The other thing they can do is go underground and try to avoid the story.

There is another angle to it that shows real skill. The story was teased with the salacious images of Hunter Biden high on drugs. People love seeing famous people in a bad way, so it was sure to get a lot of attention. Then you get the details about the Ukrainian shake-down scheme and the juxtaposition of the guy we see in the media and the guy getting the $50,000 per month contract becomes stark. Joe Biden’s motives suddenly become obvious to everyone.

The organized effort to bury the story by social media made it something more than just the typical political scandal. People naturally assume the effort to cover it up is proof that there is some truth to it. It reveals once again that the woke army is not populated with great minds. Within living memory the left-wing media would have known how to knock this down without looking like vinegar drinking scolds. Instead, the response reminded lots of people of what is really at stake.

It also reminded people why they rolled the dice with Donald Trump back in 2016, when all the best people said otherwise. The FBI has had this material for months. They were asked by the House and Senate about it and stonewalled them. In other words, the reason it is coming out now and through the tabloids is the best people tried to hide it, rather than do their job. It reinforces the underlying narrative of this election. It is us against them and they are not good people.

Perhaps the best part of this caper is that Bannon had this material for a long time, but held onto it for just the right moment. The best dirty tricks are done when people are ready to pay attention. Before a big debate or in the final days of the campaign is when it is best to do it. Not only are people paying attention, the other side does not have to time to create an alternate reality. Unleashing this stuff now means the story the rest of the way is about the air of scandal around the Biden family.

A bit of true genius or maybe just dumb luck is that the Bannon was the guy behind this, according to his own testimony. Giuliani, on the other hand, was the surrogate sent out to discuss it with the media initially. The Left then pounced and claimed that anything that comes from Giuliani is invalid by default. Now we see it is Bannon behind this caper, so the original denouncing looks extra stupid. Again, it could be dumb luck, but the way this has ben rolled out is looking brilliant.

That’s another indication that the Inner Party is short of talent. They had the Trump tax returns, which had some salacious stuff in them. Nothing really all that bad, but they required a response. They also had the Melania recordings. Instead of dumping this stuff in the summer when no one cares, it should be coming out now. They could have exaggerated the contents and forced Trump to shift gears to address it. Instead, it has all been forgotten as old news.

The question about these capers is whether they change minds. After all, if you are sure Trump is a punishment sent by the gods, then you don’t care about this. If you are a Trump fan, then maybe it makes you a bit more enthusiastic and a bit more confident, but it did not change your vote. That said, voter enthusiasm is a very strong undercurrent in every election, which is why campaigns work so hard to get their side super-excited for their guy. See for yourself.

I noted that many of the actors are obviously on fear for their lives. The interview for the computer repair shop owner was most remarkable. Imagine a elite cabal with the price for admission the murder of your pet( or something more perverse, more vile). Who would it attract? What would those people do to protect their power. What happened to G Maxwell anyways?

Rich & to a lesser extent, Epstein are small fry relative to Trump. After four years of non stop attacks, lies and pretty much anything else these swamp turds could conjure up, anything bad happens and everyone knows who metaphorically pulled the trigger, doctored the meds, poisoned the chow. I think a large part of this (admittedly) former country would explode – and a large percentage of that explosion has lots of other stuff that can further explode.

This is the reality of it, OF. Bureaucratic corruption is easy as long as there are enough potential suspects and fall guys. Among the reasons the IC and FBI always were going to go unpunished was there were so many intermediaries between Obama/Biden and the top brass who could have been blamed and taken the fall. Note that absolutely none of them came forward as whistleblowers precisely because they knew it wouldn’t be the FBI director or CIA director who took the fall.

Aside from extremely obvious election-rigging or cheating, does anyone think that Biden is going to win? My impression is that libs aren’t all that enthused about the guy, and that Trump supporters are straight up stoked to stick it to the swamp for four more years. Does anyone living in swing state see anything different?

Sure, I think that Biden could win; in fact, I’d say it’s a distinct possibility. To people who aren’t critical thinkers — and that’s a lot of people — the pressure of OMB has swayed their psyches toward a Lovecraftian fanaticism. They will absolutely tow party line. God sees all, after all. (I’m just waiting for the day when our voting records go public. We wouldn’t want any counter-revolutionaries in our midst, would we?)

In my swing state, I see a lot of Pro-Trump energy, and nearly no enthusiasm for Biden. The thing about the polls right now is that there likely to keep Biden higher than Hillary was in them on election day just so they can make the fraud attempts seem more plausible.
He really can’t win short of outright theft, there’s just nowhere near the energy they’d need. It would be poking through somewhere if it existed at all.

I agree with your thoughts that Whites, left to themselves, generally create nice communities. I would add, however, that Civil Rights and related disasters were not necessarily some vile plan hatched by crypto-Communist Jews intent on overthrowing the WASP establishment, although that is often a theme. Couldn’t it be as simple as this? Western civilization, or at least the USA version, was at or near its peak in the mid 20th century. We’d just won a great war.

You make a good point (thank you for playing devil’s advocate; constructive criticism is always welcome) however I think “crypto-Communist Jews intent on overthrowing the WASP establishment” leveraged our optimism and good will rather than having any of the latter themselves. It’s how they got the necessary buy-in from people who should have been more skeptical of what is in 20/20 hindsight a lunatic endeavor. I suggest the proof is in what came after. The original 1960’s social engineering project essentially had the goal of making Africans into Europeans. When it became clear that it failed, their next move was… Read more »

Biden does the “cars in the drive-in” speeches because he gets about 3 people to come out to a traditional speech. His handlers go rent cars and then honk on cue to his speech. Fake, fake, fake. Short of cheating, the old Dems are toast and the AOC faction is due to take over the party.

As a fellow resident of California East, I have seen a couple things here that are really weird with regards to the election this year. One was a poll done by 9NewsKills in Denver about how Biden and Hickenpooper have commanding leads, but prop 115 was neck and neck. Prop 115 is a ballot initiative to put a ban on any non-medical necessity abortions at 22 weeks. It’s really hard for me to imagine the average Biden supporter favoring any restrictions on abortion, so I don’t really know how to reconcile that poll sensibly.

Negative enthusiasm does not work as well as positive enthusiasm. Think about how much more difficult it is to persuade someone to vote for your mediocre candidate based on your hatred for the opposition. That’s a steep hill to climb. If your candidate is an empty suit, you’ve got a huge problem with the undecided voters. Watch what happens.

You’re correct about the psychology. That’s why in the big cities the Dems have precinct captains—and black revruns in the black ghettoes with plenty of Party money—to make sure that the not-very-enthused get out and pull the D lever. So far as undecided voters are concerned, I’m skeptical that there are very many of them. Most people made up their minds about Trump a long time ago. It doesn’t matter what Biden is or is not. The election is a referendum on. Trump.

Getting all the voters in the Ghetto may backfire: “The #1 predictor of voting Republican is owning a handgun,” Basham told Forbes. “Black female gun ownership has skyrocketed. Forty percent of new handgun owners are female; 60 percent are African-American.” Had a friend who recently went to a gun show and he said he had never seen so many blacks at a gun show.

There’s a story that Nixon was taken to the rites at Bohemian Grove, and sat in mute disgust, saying only, “not me, not in a million years”, and that’s when the WaPo’s rabid weasels were set upon him.

Of course, winning full concessions from Hanoi- winning the war, victory in other words- and ending the Vietnam money machine probably had a great deal to do with it.

(Until the Democrats overturned that victory in ’74-75, leading to the evacuation, that is.)

Well, let’s not forget fear motivates a lot of Trump voters as well. A lot of people are not just voting FOR Trump out of enthusiasm.

Trump has been a nationally known figure for 4 decades. Just prior to becoming President he had a top rated television show. He has multiple Hollywood TV show and movie appearances. Every single celebrity, politician, and MSM person who has been bashing him nonstop for 4 years would have given their left nut to be invited to one of his events prior to 2016. The over the top hatred makes no sense other than they fear YT waking up.

I think it’s 50/50. VBM and EV numbers are bad in Florida and North Carolina. At the end of the day, I don’t see Trump losing those.

Basically he just needs one rust belt state, basically a coin toss. I hope he has plans in place to deal with fraud. If he doesn’t, he will lose.

Most heritage Americans are realizing that they have lost and that this is no longer their country. Voting Trump is just one last middle finger. At least future civilizations will read about some kind of resistance (unlike in Canada).

I doubt that means anything. New York is Trump’s home state, and he lost it big — Manhattan, the borough where he owns a skyscraper, voted 86% for Hillary.

Western PA is sure as hell not Biden country… his adopted “home state” of Delaware is practically a suburb of Philly, so I’m sure it’s different there.

There weren’t right either as they predicted a Blue Wave that didn’t happen and the Republicans kept the Senate
This was unusual in that the opposition party almost always has hefty gains but instead only had modest ones,
Ultimately though even a Trump landslide is just a delaying action .

As your friend, Meme, I just down-voted your post as requested. Reality on the ground? Elections are normally won at the margins, i.e. the so-called “middle” 5% or 10%; landslides are made when the “middle” voters experience wholesale shifts. That is happening now, even moreso than in 2016; data comes from the otherwise-cooked polls showing Trump doing not-as-bad now as in 2016. As for anecdotal evidence, I offer three wonderful words: Hidden (or “shy”) Trump voters.

There is a lot of truth in this.

It’s not as significant as some make it out to be. The enthusiasm gap is less than one might think; the other side hates Trump with a passion.

Regardless of the election outcome, this is guaranteed. The NormieCons never will acknowledge their votes no longer matter. The only question is how many NormieCons will there be in four years? I suspect much fewer, and not totally due to death.

And just out of interest: were there Romney rallies? I honestly do not recall any and the idea seems ludicrous. I voted Third Party–even Green in 2000 just to stir up shit–from 1996 until Trump, so didn’t even pay attention beyond Obama’s essentially vacuous movement, which was hilarious as well as a portent of things to come.

In the Netflix documentary “Mitt” it becomes apparent that Romney goes into Election Day convinced by the size and eagerness of his recent rallies that he is going to win. So convinced that I’ve heard he didn’t write a concession speech. In retrospect, it seem ludicrous to think Romney could have won, but there were plenty of people vocally supportive, though in my estimation for negative reasons (they wanted Black Jesus to lose).

Trump wins, the Uniparty stops up the government teat, the economic decline continues for the man in the street, and the radical Dems roll in 2024.

If I were betting, I’d certainly bet on Biden. Trump will get the same 63 million or so votes that he got in 2016. Biden will get 2 to 5 million more votes that Clinton got in 2016, and he will get them in the right places in FL, PA, MI, and WI. Sure, a lot of those votes will be fraudulent, but they will count nonetheless. His EC victory will be substantial.

The best that can be said about Trump so far is that we have lost a little ground in some areas, and maybe gained a bit here or there. That is better than losing a lot of ground and gaining nothing. I would expect a second Trump term to be more of the same. Again, that would be better than Harris/Biden. For me, at least it is enough to motivate me to vote.

Biden is the odds-on favorite to win. He’ll certainly take the majority of the total vote, probably by something like 3 to 5 million.

I remember reading something by Mencius Moldbug on the subject of how to bring down a government. The first prerequisite, he wrote, would be to estrange the public from the authorities ruling over them. Once that bond of trust and respect is broken, it would only be a matter of time before open revolt surfaced. Whether Trump wins or not, I believe the benchmark for rebellion has been reached.

BTW, Zman, your TakiMag article is both fascinating and excellent.

Indeed. No matter who “wins” in November, the American people will continue to lose. Fedgov is going to keep on decaying; and the biggest impact on white men will continue to be the annual shakedown on April 15. Wake up! Your states and cities are where the true battle is. If nothing changes, you too will suffer the insanity that we in California have seen accelerate in the last decade to cement an irreversible brown dystopia. Act now to get your mayors and city councils squared away. If you can still back govenors and state legislators who care more about… Read more »

I’ll vote for Trump, obviously, and am sanguine enough about his chances not to be black-pilled, but the “silent majority” is now a terrified plurality. There’s a difference between people keeping quiet because they don’t want to look uncouth or start an argument at the dinner table, versus people keeping quiet because they don’t want the most powerful businesses and intelligence gathering agencies and media organs and marauding underclass elements to destroy their careers, burn their homes and cars and harm their families.

The terrified plurality is actually pretty loud right now. Look at all the people at Trump rallies etc.

Biden has dementia and is a potato. Trump has alot of enthusiasm.

However, demographics are destiny. Muh increased Hispanic support only goes so far. 2020 is the last year the GOP can win nationally, and only due to Trump kind of using the Sailer Strategy. In 2024 the GOP just won’t be able to win. Demographics are destiny.

I remember following the 2018 elections on DailyKos because I was skeptical of the blue wave they were hoping for and I wanted to see the meltdown if it didn’t happen. The early returns were very favorable to republicans and despair set in. Several posters were actually saying “Fuck white women!” because they were apparently not voting the right way. Not one person was called out on this. Eventually, the “trickle in vote” turned many races blue.

If (a) Trump wins outright and (b) the election cannot be stolen or a coup pulled off, White women will become the demons du juor permanently. It is about the only reason I think that Biden could win outright. White women can be shamed into action. The riots also had the goal of shaming as well as terrifying them. I don’t think that one worked at all.

Lanky: All the seemingly excessive demands for credit and financial info indicate that the people who want your money (the landlords and lenders) do not trust their own metrics and their own judgement and are too stupid to know the difference between a decent credit risk and a deadbeat.

If Trump wins, it is likely to be a very close thing. All the enthusiasm readers are seeing is White enthusiasm, and most people here hang around White people. As another poster mentioned, demographics are destiny. Enough of the US is non-White that Trump can win the White vote handily and still lose.

The White traitors and idiots plus 90%+ Blacks plus 70%+ Hispanics plus 80%+ Asians and other can still overwhelm 60% of the White vote, depending on how the electoral college shakes out. Fortunately a lot of the non-White vote is packed into a few states.

Two takes I’ve heard on Bannon, and they couldn’t be more divergent:

  1. He’s a self-interested grifter.
  2. He’s a visionary.

Both could be true, or neither, but those who know him claim one or the other. I always have been skeptical of the leaking claims that led to his firing, and the recent charges against him came at a good time for the Deep State. His opposition to Chinese supremacy certainly was against powerful interests that had every motive to push him off the stage.

The whole clan is a soap opera of tragic familial dysfunction and ruined lives. It would be sad if not for the fact that Dementia Joe could be holding the nuclear trigger in a few months. How far we have fallen as a nation.

Here is Margot Cleveland’s excellent take on the Hunter hard drive story. First, she cautions against focusing on the salacious stuff about Hunter. That’s what the Biden camp would like us to do. Easily brushed off with a sob story about a horribly addicted son. She rightly focuses this as Joe’s addiction to power with Hunter as a tool, a means to Joe’s own ends.

Yes, Joe has always been the evil genius that spawned the crime family business. And yes, sacrificing his sons as tools of the business is especially evil. But Joe is now at Stage 2 Alzheimer’s and declining fast, so pitching him as a viable presidential candidate is evil on steroids. And never forget that Joe is a piker compared to Obama or the Clinton’s criminality.

Zman’s post today has justified praise for the consummate skill with which Trump’s October Surprises are being deployed (helped even more by the heavy-handed stupidity of the MSM and tech oligarchs). This may turn out to be the most brilliantly-run national political campaign in modern American history. Maybe in ALL of American history.

consummate skill

When it happened, I had some thoughts Bannon’s ‘firing’ was actually a 4-D chess move based on Trump’s realization he needed an effective political operative outside the Cathedral’s spotlight.

The cover story about Bannon moving to Europe to advise populist movements there never really made sense to me.

Biden isn’t going anywhere for the same reason Hillary is a dud: Black’s will not turn out to vote for him, just like they buckled over Hillary. Not only will most blacks stay home, but so will the far left. Also, from what I understand, the Republicans have been very successful with new voter registration, picking up thousands of new supporters. Enthusiasm, like Z says is key and it’s painfully obvious, it’s just not there for Biden. A useful analogy is to think back to the Obama-Romney election. This was during the Ron Paul Revolution, and I can tell you,… Read more »

I can’t figure out how the Dems figure Biden has any youth appeal at all, other than empty statements about loan forgiveness and the Green New Deal hoax.

Speaking of the Green New Deal, Trump really needs to tie that to the rolling blackouts and wildfires in California and make it clear that’s a preview for the entire country.

You raise an excellent point: Joe has zero youth appeal. Now the Antifa/BLM/Green captains will turn out to vote and maybe some of the more zealous will organize the troops to turn out, but more than likely, there’s just not enough there to get them to put down the bong and vote. “Literally Hitler” isn’t going to motivate them just like Barrack Obama is the anti-Christ didn’t get the far right to turn out for Romney. Contrast that to Joe’s feelings about blacks. He’s constantly spouting anti black, “racist” tropes and stereotypes. Thugs don’t vote anyways, and the more intelligent… Read more »

Above, I should have added that, “Ok Boomer,” justified or not, is a common refrain for many, many Millennials and Z’s.

Biden is about as Boomer as it gets.

To late. They have already voted for Biden whether they wanted to or not. My hook or by crook Biden may be elected.
Mostly by crook.

President Trump isn’t a standard Republican and won’t roll over for fraud if only because if he loses power his family will be ruined out of Deep State Spite.

There was no reasonable way for him to know the response would be so crazy. After all he is roughly as Conservative as Clinton was and was at various times friends with them. However the “ruling class” is completely consumed by status competition and an assumption they know better than the rest of us and this outcome wasn’t something anyone had thought about until a few years ago.And yes that includes people in Our Thing. In any case voting is only kabuki at this point The only way out is through. We need a new country , 90% homogeneous ethnically,… Read more »

Of course all this “ lock him up” applied to Biden or “ lock her up” that was applied to Hillary will never happen.
In the meantime the nut jobs really will lock us dirt people up and given the chance they will lock Trump up.
Assuming Trump wins and that is not a certain assumption we have a limited window, maybe a very limited window, to actually do anything to help the legacy American nation to survive.
Its gonna be more Jared and Ivanka ideas to the forefront I am afraid. But I suppose that beats the Kamala gulags.

There’s a hidden context to the Hunter text messages. He secretly loathes his father. Sort of like “you did this to me dad.” Hunter, sadly, is every guy I went to high school with who was spoiled, overindulged and given no moral base by their car dealership owning fathers. There are a lot of Hunters out their and their carelessness is actually a passive aggression. Like blowing off a laptop you left at some strip mall shop. And let’s not forget that Hunter wasn’t selling access. “Pops” was granting it. It was his show. And as Hunter would probably say… Read more »

The reason I think this “scandal” might move the needle is because among the non-political class who might still be persuadable, complicated bribery schemes just get processed as “they’re all crooks” but good-deal hookups for the family drug user is obviously fraudulent in a way that exposes Biden’s affable, lunch-pail personality as an obvious fraud. That is, among the non-political working class, they know intuitively that drug issues ruin lives. They know that being kicked out of the Navy with an OTH discharge is, for normal people, something that ruins their life. They certainly know that among normal people that… Read more »

The average guy persona was such a cheap veneer. He’s been at the trough since the early 70’s.

One short story that everyone should read or re-read is Matt Bracken’s, “What I Saw at the Coup.”

I feel like that got the general plot arc for what we are seeing correct and

hit some specific points too.
