Joe Biden ended his Presidential campaign with this one sentence

Joe Biden walked on stage for the second Presidential debate as a wounded front runner.

Things went even worse during the course of the night.

And when all was said and done, Joe Biden ended his Presidential campaign with this one sentence.

During the 2016 campaign, one of Hillary Clinton’s biggest mistakes was spouting off about how her global warming policies would put coal workers out of business.

Trump’s pledge to support the coal industry helped pave the way for his victories in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Joe Biden doubled down on Hillary’s mistake in the second Presidential debate when he said he would end coal and fossil fuels during his administration in an effort to tackle so-called “global warming.”

Breitbart reports:

Michigan — Former vice preisdent Joe Biden declared at the second Democrat debate in Detroit on Wednesday evening that he would fight climate change by eliminating coal, fossil fuels, and fracking . . .

CNN moderator Dana Bash then asked Biden to clarify where he stood on fossil fuels, and the following exchange ensued:

Dana Bash: thank you, vice president. just to clarify, would there be any place for fossil fuels including coal and fracking in a biden administration?

Joe Biden: No. We would work it out. We would make sure it’s eliminated, and no more subsidies for either one of those, any fossil fuel.

Biden’s entire theory of the case in 2020 rests on the fact that he can win over working class voters in the Rust Belt.

But the Trump campaign is sure to bombard coal-producing regions in the industrial Midwest with ads about how Biden plans to take away their jobs.

    I am not even reading anything that has to do with the Democrats, any longer. It’s a waste of precious time, and energy. I will support President Trump, as always, standing with him, and helping wherever I can — throughout his presidency; and candidacy for another four (4) years, which is equally as detrimental for the betterment of our country, including our survival in all ways. G-d bless him, as G-d blesses America; and all its true citizens, who of the latter will continue to do all it can to keep us going strong. With this, properly in place, the whole world — granted with the exception of those out to destroy and/or harm whatever/wherever they can, due to their unfortunate sickness — will be a better place. We must always be vigil and have our guard up. On that note, to enable us to be vigil and have our guard up, I guess we do have to watch and decipher what wrongs are being worked on, to not allow such to harm the good. “Make America Great Again, and Keep America Great.” The whole world will follow suit, “For the world to be a better place for you and for me…..”

  4. Fedup says:

    Forget about Biden and the rest of the 24 idiots. When is anyone going to talk about which country is going to start eliminating the use of coal and oil? This is a worldwide problem !! Are we the first?? Our economy will be ruined and the once-proud USA will become another third world country. While China, India, and other countries in the world keep on stoking their powerplants and drive their vehicles. The net result will be negligible as a whole !!!

  5. Linda Lofton says:

    And so once again Biden proves on national TV that he is an idiot. I believe he is secretly AOC’s father. Stupid begets stupid. Just HOW will this country operate without a sustainable energy sorce?

    • Biden Not AOC Father as U said.
      Biden is probably AOC’s Grand Apa/Father.

  8. Patrick B Mattison says:

    it appears to me that today’s media writers and broadcasters read each other’s stories as fact, and exponentially multiply the fake news they are presenting to the point of ridiculousness. “Good Old Grampa Joe” Biden really isn’t a story anymore, he’s a retiring old man. He continuously stumbles and fumbles when talking, scare gropes people, and has to be scripted in his political commentary–nobody can predict his answers when asked for an analysis. He’s always been at the “baby stage” having to be spoon fed the political correct answers for fear he’ll put his Democrat foot in his mouth. He gets $200,000+ for giving speeches as an Ex Vice-President and he thinks it’s because the public wants to hear what he has to say. It’s time for “Good Old Grampa Joe to just go home!

    There sure are a lot of ignorant trump minions making foolish comments. In answer to the poll question…anyone with a working brain knows that COAL is not the way of the future! It is filthy and outdated…too many better ways to go.

    • glock19fan says:

      Coal is passe? Last I heard, coal is still the cheapest fuel per BTU – British Thermal Unit – and the Paris Accord provided that the USA had to shut down coal mines and coal-fired power plants while the rest of the world would be exempt from that. Trump did the exact right thing by pull us out of it; all it ever was was an international slush fund paid for by American taxpayers.

      • MSGT JOHN CORREA says:

        glock19fan, You are absolutely correct. Unfortunately, M.J. has no idea of what he’s talking about, and I doubt if anyone can penetrate the limited capacity of his brain. It appears his opinion is without substance since he lacks the production based on facts. He probably believes in Al Gore’s fabrication of Global Warming which was changed to Climate Change to make appear as if mankind and animals are the culprits for Climate Change. Anyone that believes in Global Warming/ Climate Change is an idiot!

      Coal USED to be filthy but not any more and far less outdated than one might assume. Currently coal is a great (and clean) source of energy for power/utility companies.

      • George says:

        I worked at a coal-fired plant that has “scrubbers” a limestone slurry is injected into the absorber, which In turn neutralized the sulferic acid, the plant boasted a 98%clean emission standard. Not bad for coal, plus it was a great paying job.

      MJ, can you name what would replace coal? Can you give an option? What would The People do to make a living in those areas? Do you have a plan? I don’t believe you have a clue.

      As far as answering whether this statement ends Biden’s bid, I couldn’t say. What Joe Biden really should do if he really wants to be the nominee is fire all of his campaign staff that is giving him bad advise! He has the maturity and experience to stand up and speak his own beliefs! I wouldn’t support him because I don’t support his real views but he would go a lot farther on his own merit.
      If he would do that, I truly believe that he would be the one who would be on stage to debate President Trump for 2020.

    The left have already picked Biden as there candidate.
    This is going to be fun. Biden at the end of the so called debate, couldn’t even remember his own web sight. An some of the fools there thought his name was Bill Biden.
    Oh yea, this is going to be fun.

    • R.C. says:

      Boy, you are way missing the mark. They said that Trump, he had no chance, and they said that same thing about Obama. That is like calling a 4-mile run on the first lap. We have not seen the top tiered Democratic candidates take each other on in more of a debate rather than question-and-answer format.

      But don’t kid yourself, the Dems are united, and most women and minorities, that they cannot stand Trump and his criminal behaviors.

      • Anna says:

        Criminal behavior? Have you taken a look at the other side’s list of criminal behavior? How about their close friend’s criminal behavior?
        Oh and those “minorities” prefer to be called Americans than by the brown or black label that was heaped upon them.

      • MSGT JOHN CORREA says:

        R..C. You don’t know what you’re talking about. If you did you would list all ‘criminal behaviors” committed by Donald J. Trump. And you said; “the Dems are united?” Show us where are the “Dems united?” And tell us where have you been all the while the Dems were fighting against each other? I don’t think you even know about the Clinton’s association with the Dixie Mafia, and the 56 friends and associates who allegedly committed suicide within an eight year period or the murder of Vincent Foster. Tell me R.C., how many people that you know had committed suicide within the same eight year period?

        Who conducted an investigation of the Clintons when it should have been under the jurisdiction of the FBI and wasn’t?

    Breitbart is just a propaganda group, even Trump has to get rid of Bannon early in his first year. To show you, look at the polls in those states where you question, and look at the other facts: like many coal companies are going bankrupt – – just the forces of the market, not politics. You can’t keep any industry going when the customers are moving to cleaner, cheap natural gas and other sources. Biden has a double-digit lead on Trump now – – minorities and women are much more in support of Biden than Trump!!

    FOOL US ONCE SHAME ON YOU JOE, FOOL US TWICE SHAME ON US, if we vote for you Joe as we did for that lying asshole Obama who told the American people: “If you like your insurance…you can keep your insurance…” If you like your doctor…You can keep your doctor.”…

    Both hideous lies and Obama knew they were before they left his lips. Democrats are proving incapable of telling the truth to the American people…

  15. The MSM has already selected Biden and has given him their blessing. Nobody else has a chance in spite of the fact they know he’s a horse’s ass moron full of gaffes.

  16. Richard Love says:

    Interesting to see Biden turn his back on coal country. He boasts that he is a common man with roots in the Scranton Pennsylvania area when he wants to relate to the blue collar worker but kicked coal country in the teeth to support the more trendy global concept of condemning all fossil fuels.

    If the Rancho Seco power plant were replaced with solar power which produces a few thousand megawatts it would take a several thousand acres of solar panels to replace it with less than 1% of the power it produced. Solar panels are about 40 % efficient and expensive which is not practical for our energy needs at best. Solar and wind
    Power can only supply us with less
    than 10% of our country’s energy needs stupid.

    • Jvf says:

      Th only thing solar did for us was make some politicians very rich before going bankrupt. The American people lost billions .

  19. libra says:

    Biden is corrupt and is very wealthy already from his career spanning over 40 years. Physically–he is not up to the rigors of the Presidency. When the Republicans get closer to the Demomarxists primary–they will be telling all about the scandals of the front runners in the primary. The World has become such a dangerous place that we do not need SLEEPY JOE or a LAZY JOE as president. He just does not have the vision, the smarts, the energy, the guts to stand up to the world’s Bullies. Neither do any one of the others standing on the Demomarxist stages.

    The benefits of nuclear power plants far outweigh the risks. When in operation, they only emit steam that is not radioactive as some would have you think otherwise. A coal fired plant gives us carbon dioxide and other deadly gases which are not environmental safe.

    • glock19fan says:

      Greg,

      You are right about the benefits of nuclear power but Chernobyl and Three Mile Island as well as the Fukushima meltdown will have lots of people still “gun-shy” for quite awhile yet. However, I wouldn’t worry about carbon dioxide because it is heavier than air and displaces the air as it settles to earth. Also it is necessary to plant life and we certainly need that. CO2 is not a greenhouse gas but methane is because it is lighter than air but the EPA can’t control it so they keep ranting about CO2 and conveniently forget that is the gas that we exhale when we breathe.

  22. Geri D says:

    Fuel cells (Hydrogen) for homes and cars. They exist. GE has had them for the past 30 years. The postal service has used them in vans. The emissions are pure clear drinking water (so no radioactive waste). Farms off the grid have been using them for years. Me thinks the big reason all you people don’t know about them is because it will topple total economies reliant on OIL.

  23. Jim Ripley says:

    Has been Biden is famous for shooting hisself in the foot in many of his asinine statements . If he will be the “Democraps”presidential choice expect him to pick California “Kook” kamila Harris for V.P so he can pander to blacks.

  24. Vasu Murti says:

    During the 1970s, in the aftermath of Vietnam and Watergate, when politicians would actually speak the truth, we were reminded we live in an era of limits.

    Jimmy Carter wore a sweater and personally set an example on conserving energy by turning down the thermostat.

    Jerry Brown halted construction of a nuclear power plant, and encouraged conservation and alternative sources of energy.

    Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory scientists estimate that if the U.S. became energy efficient, it would save $220 billion per year on its energy bill.

    Nuclear power has proven to be a disaster: 116 plants have been canceled in the United States since 1973 and no new plants ordered since 1978. This has been an economic waste of more than $50 billion.

    Nuclear power suffers from uncontrollable expenses due to construction, operation, maintenance and radioactive waste management. The nuclear waste that comes from nuclear power generation is deadly, and contains isotopes that remain toxic for up to 220,000 years. There is no safe way to dispose of it.

    In June 1989, the citizens of Sacramento voted to shut down the Rancho Seco nuclear plant after 15 years of operation. The plant may be converted to solar power.

    The New York’s Shoreham nuclear plant will never operate due to public opposition. The nuclear industry ignored the public outcry, and it now costs the taxpayers and the industry $6 billion.

    The nuclear power industry is an industry plagued with safety hazards, routine radiation releases, mismanagement, cost overruns, increased maintenance costs, extended outages and a dependence on federal subsidies.

    Forbes magazine called the failed nuclear power program “the largest managerial disaster in U.S. business history,” costing as much as the space program and the Vietnam War combined.

    According to the Nuclear Information and Resource Service, moving from fossil fuel to nuclear power on a global level would require building a new reactor every one to three days for the next 40 years, at a cost of $200 billion per year.

    This would result in 300,000 tons of radioactive waste in the United States alone.

    Reasonable alternatives exist. Solar energy is abundant, non-polluting and dependable. Electricity-producing wind turbines exist in 95 countries, with an installed capacity of 1,450 megawatts. They can be installed alone or in clusters.

    A coal or nuclear plant can take a decade or longer to plan or construct, whereas wind turbine clusters have been built in under 90 days.

    New wind systems generate power at six to nine cents per kilowatt hour, while electricity from new nuclear power plants costs 13 cents per kilowatt hour.

    According to United Nations energy statistics, hydroelectric power supplies 21 percent of the world’s electricity, more than nuclear power.

    Hydroelectric power provides the most efficient, most reliable and lowest cost source of electricity, with production costs generally one-tenth those of nuclear power.

    Geothermal energy projects cost less than half the cost of nuclear reactors, and can be built in one-fifth of the time.

    According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, nuclear power has become the least competitive of conventional electricity sources. Costs of $2 to $3 billion per plant are now commonplace, with some plants costing upwards of $5 billion.

    In contrast, while the price of electricity generated by solar energy is not yet as low as that from coal-fired plants, some technologies are already cheaper than nuclear-generated electricity.

    (This is not an endorsement of coal as a source of energy!)

    The average output of nuclear plants is only about 60 percent of designed capacity, because many plants are forced to shut down frequently for repairs and maintenance.

    In the 1980s, the time required for construction of a nuclear reactor typically ranged from eight to fourteen years.

    The real roots of this problem lie in faulty and incomplete design work, inadequate quality control during construction and poor management.

    General safety issues plague the nuclear power industry. These include the capability of safety control systems to survive fires, earthquakes or hydrogen explosions; the capability of reactor systems to respond to an emergency shutdown command; and the capability of a plant to withstand the loss of power needed to operate safety systems.

    A typical nuclear power plant generates over thirty metric tons of highly radioactive material, which remains hazardous to humans for thousands of years. There is no easy solution to the disposal of nuclear waste.

    According to Greenpeace, a 1989 Lou Harris poll found 62 percent of U.S. citizens strongly opposed to nuclear power.

    Like the environmental movement, the antinuclear movement has grown in past decades from a radical fringe element into a mainstream public concern.

    Questions to ask proponents of nuclear power are as follows:

    1) How will the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) define safety standards for new reactors?

    2) Will the quality of construction be better than in the past?

    3) Where and how will the additional nuclear wastes generated by new plants be disposed of?

    4) Will the nuclear industry be more willing to accept stringent regulation and enforcement than it has been in the past?

    Until these questions are answered satisfactorily, nuclear power remains a risky solution to the energy crisis.

    Veganism, by contrast, is an ethic (and not a religion) we can all embrace as the solution to the numerous crises facing our planet.

    It takes nearly one gallon of fossil fuel and 2,500 gallons of water to produce just one pound of conventionally fed beef. (Mother Jones)

    Nearly 75% of the grain grown and 50% of the water consumed in the U.S. are used by the meat industry. (Audubon Society)

    In their 2007 book, Please Don’t Eat the Animals, mother and daughter Jennifer Horsman and Jaime Flowers write:

    “Half of all fresh water worldwide is used for thirsty livestock. Producing eight ounces of beef requires an unimaginable 25,000 liters of water, or the water necessary for one pound of steak equals the water consumption of the average household for a year.

    “The Worldwatch Institute estimates one pound of steak from a steer raised in a feedlot costs: five pounds of grain, a whopping 2,500 gallons of water, the energy equivalent of a gallon of gasoline, and about 34 pounds of topsoil.

    “Thirty-three percent of our nation’s raw materials and fossil fuels go into livestock destined for slaughter. In a vegan economy, only two percent of our resources will go to the production of food.”

    “It seems disingenuous for the intellectual elite of the first world to dwell on the subject of too many babies being born in the second- and third-world nations while virtually ignoring the overpopulation of cattle and the realities of a food chain that robs the poor of sustenance to feed the rich a steady diet of grain-fed meat.”

    –Jeremy Rifkin, pro-life AND pro-animal author, Beyond Beef: The Rise and Fall of the Cattle Culture, and president of the Greenhouse Crisis Foundation

    According to the editors of World Watch, July/August 2004:

    “The human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future — deforestization, topsoil erosion, fresh water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities and the spread of disease.”

    • Robert B says:

      A long screed – but you are wrong about the problems with nuclear power. Nuclear plants get beset by dozens of environmental reviews that take years to complete, and multiply the costs of construction 10-fold. LW reactor waste is composed of mostly Plutonium-229 and Uranium-238, both of which can be used up in liquid salt thorium reactors, thereby removing almost all of the long-lived waste. The fission products can be more easily purged from a liquid salt, and they are dangerous for only a hundred years or so.

      Similarly, cattle use raw, untreated water to drink, and that is not in short supply anywhere those animals thrive. Ranchers have a vested interest in keeping their grazing lands in good shape, which is an argument for private ownership of such lands.

      • John Boanerges Redman says:

        Hey, Robert B, we are BOTH Thorium fans AND regenerative farming (of beef and other). I hope the fanship grows.

    • John Boanerges Redman says:

      Didn’t get through your whole post but I never saw a word about thorium plants which run off spent fuel rods and fail safe. Further, the waste they finally produce is very low level. I see that you got off on a tangent hating beef. Well, that industry has bad management as all industrial farming.

    • Ronald Gonshorowski says:

      The average CO2 intensity for the steel industry is 1,9 tons of CO2 per ton of steel produced. Taking into consideration the global steel production of more than 1,3 billion tons, the steel industry produces over two billion tons of CO2.
      The largest scrap-only furnace (in terms of tapping weight and transformer rating) is a DC furnace operated by Tokyo Steel in Japan, with a tap weight of 420 metric tonnes and fed by eight 32MVA transformers for 256MVA total power.

      To produce a ton of steel in an electric arc furnace requires approximately 400 kilowatt-hours per short ton or about 440 kWh per metric tonne; the theoretical minimum amount of energy required to melt a tonne of scrap steel is 300 kWh (melting point 1520 °C/2768 °F). Therefore, a 300-tonne, 300 MVA EAF will require approximately 132 MWh of energy to melt the steel, and a “power-on time” (the time that steel is being melted with an arc) of approximately 37 minutes. Electric arc steelmaking is only economical where there is plentiful electricity, with a well-developed electrical grid.
