Peltola endorses Biden, while Vivek Ramaswamy says the president’s campaign is a case of ‘elder abuse’

Joe Biden officially announced that he’s running for president and the responses have been from soup to nuts all week.

The Democratic Party is on record saying it has no plans to host any primary debates for Biden, much to the ire of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Marianne Williamson, the two other announced Democrats. Insiders are understandably concerned Biden can’t hold his own in a debate at this point.

Alaska Rep. Mary Peltola immediately endorsed Biden, saying she appreciates his support for the ConocoPhillips Willow project in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska and the fact that he listens to Alaskans.

That might not be how some Alaskans see it. Biden, in allowing the Willow project to move forward, also locked up 16 million acres of the NPR-A, saying he would not allow any other projects in the region that was set aside for oil. He’s also shut down timber and mining in the state. He canceled leases in Cook Inlet.

An early endorsement of Biden may be strategic, with Peltola’s team hoping it will be forgotten by voters later. But polls show most Democrat voters across the country do not want the 80-year-old president to run. They’d support him reluctantly if he becomes the party’s nominee. According to the latest Wall Street Journal poll, just 42% of voters approve of the job President Biden is doing compared with 56% who disapprove.

Others endorsing Biden include a long list of elected and appointed Democrats, such as Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, former President Barack Obama, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker, and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer; Sec. of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has announced his endorsement. So far, the Boston Globe is the only major newspaper to publish its endorsement.

Republican Vivek Ramaswamy, a businessman who is running for president, says Biden’s candidacy is a case of elder abuse.

“He’s not *really* running – it’s just the managerial class using Joe Biden as a front to advance its own agenda. To them Biden’s cognitive impairment isn’t a bug. It’s a feature,” Ramaswamy said in an email to potential supporters.

“The administrative state more effectively controls its puppets when they are hollowed-out husks of themselves. The fact that it’s elder abuse is just a cost of doing business for Biden’s handlers. It’s revealing that the DNC refuses to host primary debates this year; they’re spitting in the face of their grassroots base,” he wrote.

Alaskans voted for Donald Trump over Biden in 2020, with 53% for Trump to Biden’s 43%, but Biden narrowly won Anchorage that year, the first Democrat to do so since Lyndon Johnson in 1964. Trump was the first president of either party to win statewide in Alaska without winning the majority in Alaska’s largest city, which has drifted to the Left over the past four yeas.

  1. Did we really expect her to do something else? So far, Mary has demonstrated the skills of a far left marxist. Some would say that she’s really nice and some would say oh but her hearts in Alaska and all be it, those things may well be true. The fact is, she’s a far left Democrat and her interests are of the leftist marxist. It’s clear, it’s very very clear.

  2. Why would they want to have primary debates, and then get their base stirred up when they choose Biden anyway after he was totally defeated in the debates? …you know, like the last time…

    If the status quo doesn’t change before the 2024 election, Biden will ‘win’ it…

    • Yeah, yeah, Avenger, it’s all Sarah’s fault! The people spoke, but we know that she’s the “one” who really did it to us! If you’re one of “them,” why not blame Eve–Eve and her shiny red apple–since it all began long ago!

  3. Peltola has shown us early on that she is in alignment with progressive Democrats and we should not hold any expectations of her working across the aisle for the good of Alaska or the country. Endorsing an 82 to 86 year old candidate, who doesn’t know where he is or how he got there, is purely asinine partisanship. It’s also the only way for nonsensical, word mush, cackling Harris to win the presidency.

    • Not used to women’s voices, here in government?

      Did you know that modern sound machinery developed around men’s voices as they dominate in sound use environments of the time. When women started showing up more their voices did not get the tech support guys did all those years so their voices were under rated.

      • I’m left handed. Most of society is built for the right handed. Yet somehow I survived.

        If one goes looking for reasons to be outraged or offended, you’ll surely find them.

      • I think societies have been used to women in government from before Cleopatra right up through Margaret Thatcher, Nancy Pelosi, and Kamala Harris. Some do great work, some don’t, some are good and some are evil. And others, like Mary Peltola, do stupid things like endorsing a mentally and physically diminishing man for President of our nation. His presidency may likely get millions killed. What are you even talking about?

      • Wow. Maureen, there is literally no end to your wild-eyed misandry and self-perceived imaginary victimhood, is there?
        .
        I have no respect, NONE, for anyone who chooses to wallow in victimhood. Women are especially prone to this, and radical leftists as well; combine the two, and it is one potent and toxic brew.

    • Women had to develop a shrill cackle so their underrated voices could be heard over men. That’s why we need more transgenders in politics, so women’s voices can be heard.

  4. It doesn’t take much to realize that Biden’s candidacy is stillborn–he’s a mental dead-ended!

  5. The grifting Peltolas have done their “homework”. They fully understand the importance of being a cheerleader riding the sugar cane train with Nancy and her groupies. The old cash cow simply wont tolerate any followers who deviate from her guaranteed path to riches she has promised using hubby Paul Pelosi’s amazing talents to see future legislation and invest accordingly (with incredibly great success) guiding their followers to the land of OZ. Mary is not in Kansas anymore folks. She is in the land of strawmen and cowardly lions. Don Young was such a thorn in Nancy’s side for so many years she will go to any length to reward the Peltola’s for their commitment to show the whole country “SHE” won over the other skeleton in “The House”.
    Not only will Mary have full support of Anchorage but the entire outlying native communities who solely rely on the federal government to shore up their existence in coastal areas that have been eroding since the ice age. Billions of dollars from the feds are being poured into outlying areas the Obama administration designated as targets for massive federal funding to preserve their once nomadic lifestyle. Lisa and Mary are their champions as they proudly campaign on promises to deliver endless boatloads of federal funding. When Billy Walker Lisa and Mary travel to the slope they are showered with gifts from the natives showing their appreciation for the cash. They will NOT vote for anyone but those who deliver so its best to just get used to Mary and Lisa. Like it or not they are “the face” of Alaska.

  6. “Carrying on Don Young’s legacy.” Don Young’s family and former staff should be ashamed. They traded an Alaska conservative for a Pelosi drone to satisfy their pure hatred of Palin and Begich. Principles mean nothing to these people. It was only ever about a never ending lust for power and maintaining the misplaced status that comes with it.

  7. It isn’t elder abuse. It is a longtime useful idiot who is now an old patsy and will soon be a puppet fall guy. He chose his path.

  8. One reason–more that ever to get rid of Ranked Choice voting. All you voters out there—get your names on that petition to get RCV back on ballot and to repeal it! MUST DO.

  9. Peltola needs to be purged from the state. Biden is so far down the hole with Dementia he can’t even tie his shoes or walk or talk without a handler right there.
    What are they gonna call the debates? The Babbling idiot parade?? So disgusting that this is what this country has turned into. A bunch of asleep sheep. 10 years ago this would have never flown. He would have been turfed and impeached long ago… Never to be seen again. Dan Quayle are you there?? ?

  10. He’s not mentally sharp. He can’t complete a sentence with garbling at least part of it.
    He shakes hands with people who aren’t there.
    He doesn’t know which way to turn or walk and has to be told.

    Peltoa’s a good progressive foot soldier. It’s about Party. Not the people.

  11. Vivek Ramaswamy seems like a very good guy, humble as well. It wouldn’t Suprise me if he’d agree to do an interview on the MRAK podcast.

  12. I suppose the Dems and Rhinos will have to switch allegiances practically speaking before too long. A viable candidate needs time to conduct a credible campaign if there is to be one.

  13. Mary-P will never represent Alaska’s interest. She is nothing less than a self-serving politician at the expense of Alaska and Alaskans. Her track record so far proves it and I’m guessing she wont change her routine.

  14. Vivek Ramaswamy is one of wef Klaus Schwab golden boys. Mr Ramaswamy said himself that he has sued Mr Schwab to get his name removed from the website. If this is the case, then Mr Ramaswamy is trying to get into the White House to serve the big green deal.

  15. I’m just wondering what he is doing driving that gas guzzling Corvette? Wonder what the lovely Peltola is driving these days. They might have an easier time selling all there Bravo Seira aka BS if they started practicing what there preaching.

    • “I’m just wondering what he is doing driving that gas guzzling Corvette?” Cruising for hair to sniff.
      What’s the difference between a porcupine and a Corvette? On a porcupine the pricks are on the outside.
