Joe Biden Meets With Pope Francis: The Cynic’s View

I start writing this acknowledging that I don’t know the future and I can’t look within the souls of men.  Which means I could be wrong.

But I DO know how cynical Democrats are.

I also know the following facts: that Joe Biden’s son died.  That as he was dying, he allegedly told his father this:

Joe Biden’s dying son, just before he succumbed to brain cancer two months ago, begged his father to make him a promise — to run for President.

“Dad, it’s who you are,” Beau Biden reportedly told his dad, his face partially paralyzed and his vocabulary slipping.

The dramatic death bed exchange was revealed in a piece published Saturday by New York Times’ columnist Maureen Dowd.

One question being how did Maureen Dowd of the New York Times learn of these words?

I also know Joe Biden has been saying some version of this multiple times:

Ahead of Pope Francis’ visit to the United States this week, Biden told a Jesuit magazine that it remains a family decision. And the family is not there yet.

“I mean, I’ve just got to be certain that if I do this, I’m able to look you in the eye and everyone else and say I’m giving all my passion, all my, all my energy and will not be distracted. And secondly, equally as important, the other piece is: Is this moment, is this the best thing for the family as a unit?” Biden said in the interview with America magazine published Monday.

Biden remarked that he has known “almost every person” who has made a White House bid since he was 29 years old, and the decision always hinges on “personal considerations.”

“Your whole family is implicated. Your whole family is engaged. So for us it’s a family decision, and I just have to be comfortable that this will be good for the family,” he explained.

“We’re just not there yet and may not get there in time to make it feasible to be able to run and succeed because there are certain windows that will close. But if that’s it, that’s it. But it’s not like I can rush it. It’s not like it either happens or it doesn’t happen. I know that’s not satisfying to anybody, but people who have been there, I know they understand,” the vice president said.

And I also know that whether Joe Biden runs is a function of Hillary Clinton’s dwindling poll numbers as any pretense to that woman having any honesty or virtue whatsoever becomes more and more of a pathetic joke:

WASHINGTON — As Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign struggles with sliding poll numbers, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s exploration of a presidential candidacy is taking on a new seriousness.

Mr. Biden has been in contact with donors who could help finance a campaign, eyeing major contributors to President Obama and pillars of his own fund-raising network: trial lawyers, Jewish leaders and Greek-Americans. On Thursday, the vice president, who is not known for aggressively courting donors, spoke to George Tsunis, a Long Island developer and longtime supporter, who raised more than $750,000 for the Obama-Biden ticket in 2012.

“I think he is doing the prudent thing, which is to look at it and lay down some groundwork should he run,” said Mr. Tsunis, saying that Mr. Biden is aware that Mr. Tsunis will help him if he enters the race.

At the same time, some Democrats supporting Mrs. Clinton have quietly signaled that they would re-evaluate their support if Mr. Biden joined the race.

Does Joe Biden circle over Hillary Clinton’s head like the proverbial vulture, waiting for her campaign to reach the death  point when he can swoop in?  Or is America supposed to believe that yesterday Joe Biden didn’t have the fire in his heart to be president, but today he’s had a quiver in his liver that he is now truly ready to face the pressure of being the leader of what little is left of the free world (and the free America, for that matter)???

I mean, how do you say, “Yesterday, I wasn’t ready to be president.  It would be wrong for me to be the leader of the free world.  I’m just not ready.”  But then say, “But that was yesterday.  Now you should trust your children’s lives to me because the quiver in my liver cannot be wrong.”

I mean, what’s the hook that changes a man from not being ready to having the fire in his heart to tirelessly serve his nation with his whole heart and all of his energy?

What can generate such a transformation, such a change of heart?

Well, I think – being incredibly cynical about just how incredibly CYNICAL depraved Democrats truly are – that it would take a private meeting with the pope for a “good” Catholic who has supported murdering more than sixty million innocent babies but doesn’t believe in murdering them on Sundays, to manifest such a change that we can all believe in.

And what a heartwarming story, right?  I mean, overwhelmed by the tragedy of his loss, a devout Catholic man loses his heart.  But then finds it again in the wisdom and love of the Pope.  And in that heart-to-heart he finds his heart again, finds his drive, finds his passion reignited.

It’s like Rocky, only with a politician rather than a boxer.

I’m just telling you that if Joe Biden announces he’s going to run, and announces that his meeting with the Pope influenced his decision, that this was planned from the moment that he first found out the Pope was going to visit and he was going to be able to lead the American delegation at the departure ceremony of the Pope (and get that private meeting that would become his hook):

Emma Green of The Atlantic writes:

And before he took off, he had a private meeting with Joe Biden. We all know what happened last time he met with a political figure at a turning point in his career … Anything you feel moved to share, Mr. Vice President?

I think this has been scripted for months.

We continue to learn damn near every day that pretty much in every way imaginable, Hillary Clinton has lied to us about her emails and her private server that she used to conduct all her business.  We learned just a couple of days ago that her claims that she turned over all of her work-related emails before she tried to wipe her server after it was subpoenaed by Congress, and in particular that she had absolutely, without any question, on her word of honor turned over all of the emails related to the Benghazi attack, were both lies:

However, Clinton has maintained that she delivered all the “work-related” emails to the State Department. The State Department, in turn, has said that it provided all emails related to the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya in 2012, to a House select committee currently investigating the attack and Clinton’s role in the response.

According to news reports Friday, evidence suggests that neither of those claims is necessarily true.

A story by the Associated Press says the Pentagon discovered an exchange of emails between Clinton and General David Petraeus from early in her tenure at State, while he was leading U.S. Central Command. The emails were forwarded by the Defense Department to the State Department and are not among the emails that Clinton turned over to State earlier this year.

Even if the content of the email is innocuous, the revelation that there were work-related emails that Clinton did not turn over to State will raise the question of what other correspondence might have been withheld.

In addition, the State Department admitted Friday that it had not provided the House Select Committee on Benghazi with all of the emails related to the attacks that Clinton had turned over. According to The Daily Beast, the State Department on Friday informed the committee that they would be delivering a “handful” of previously undisclosed emails. The number of emails in that so-called handful? 925.

We learned a couple of days before that that Hillary Clinton had been lying when she told the world that she turned over her emails to the State Department as nothing more than part of a routine request, rather than she being the subject/target of an investigation:

Throughout the controversy over her use of a private e-mail system while she was secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton has described her decision last year to turn over thousands of work-related e-mails as a response to a routine-sounding records request.

“When we were asked to help the State Department make sure they had everything from other secretaries of state, not just me, I’m the one who said, ‘Okay, great, I will go through them again,’ ” Clinton said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “And we provided all of them.”

But State Department officials provided new information Tuesday that undercuts Clinton’s characterization. They said the request was not simply about general rec­ord-keeping but was prompted entirely by the discovery that Clinton had exclusively used a private e-mail system. They also said they first contacted her in the summer of 2014, at least three months before the agency asked Clinton and three of her predecessors to provide their e-mails.

“In the process of responding to congressional document requests pertaining to Benghazi, State Department officials recognized that it had access to relatively few email records from former Secretary Clinton,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said in a statement e-mailed to The Washington Post. “State Department officials contacted her representatives during the summer of 2014 to learn more about her email use and the status of emails in that account.”

The American people are only BEGINNING to learn about the incredibly INCOMPETENT and CRIMINAL STUPIDITY of Hillary Clinton.  Consider a story that came out earlier this month:

One of the most serious potential breaches of national security identified so far by the intelligence community inside Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private emails involves the relaying of classified information concerning the movement of North Korean nuclear assets, which was obtained from spy satellites.

Multiple intelligence sources who spoke to The Washington Times, solely on the condition of anonymity, said concerns about the movement of the North Korean information through Mrs. Clinton’s unsecured server are twofold.

First, spy satellite information is frequently classified at the top-secret level and handled within a special compartment called Talent-Keyhole. This means it is one of the most sensitive forms of intelligence gathered by the U.S.

Second, the North Koreans have assembled a massive cyberhacking army under an elite military spy program known as Bureau 121, which is increasingly aggressive in targeting systems for hacking, especially vulnerable private systems. The North Koreans, for instance, have been blamed by the U.S. for the hack of Sony movie studios.

Allowing sensitive U.S. intelligence about North Korea to seep into a more insecure private email server has upset the intelligence community because it threatens to expose its methods and assets for gathering intelligence on the secretive communist nation.

“While everyone talks about the U.S. being aware of the high threat of hacking and foreign spying, there was a certain nonchalance at Mrs. Clinton’s State Department in protecting sensitive data that alarms the intel community,” one source familiar with the email review told The Times. “We’re supposed to be making it harder, not easier, for our enemies to intercept us.”

This woman screwed America in ways we’ll NEVER know given her paranoid secrecy and her worse-than-Nixonian determination to be above the law and above the transparency of petty mortals.

The fact that Hillary Clinton isn’t already in a prison cell charged with treason against the United States of America is all the proof you need that the Obama Administration is THE most rabidly partisan entity that ever existed in the face of the earth.

So the question is whether Joe Biden runs because even though his heart and his head aren’t in the most important job on earth, because it’s better that a Democrat destroy America than that a more fit Republican whose heart and head ARE in the right place to lead get the job.  Or he needs to have a dramatic hook to convince us all that he’s ready to lead and lead for the right reasons.

Enter his meeting with the Pope.  And the Hollywood script written by Hollywood liberals just writes itself.

Don’t forget the way that story was framed:

Ahead of Pope Francis’ visit to the United States this week, Biden told a Jesuit magazine that it remains a family decision. And the family is not there yet

Ah, but what about DURING and BECAUSE OF the Pope’s visit?  “Ahead of” the Pope’s visit, Biden “isn’t there.”  But don’t you worry: because a miraculous healing event will happen and Biden will suddenly be spontaneously healed BY the Pope’s visit.  Because that’s what the cynical Democrat script calls for.  And Biden will somehow find his fire, just when he needs to, just short of too late.  Almost as if it were on cue according to the script.

Is that as cynical as it gets?  Yeah.  But every time I’ve ever thought Democrats couldn’t get more cynical, they’ve surprised me.  These people are liars to the cores of their roach souls.  And the more they talk about God or transcendent things, the more you can know they’re lying in the most cynical, depraved way much the way Obama looked at us all and lied when he told us that as a “Christian” he believed in the sanctity of marriage as the union between one man and one woman when in fact he didn’t.

I mean, let me put it this way: can Democrats develop genuine spiritual convictions?  Maybe.  But just not to anywhere near the extent that pigs can develop genuine wings and fly like falcons.

We’ll see if I’m right in the next few weeks.
