Trump, Jr.: So Biden Says He'll Cure Cancer If You Elect Him President.
Why Didn't He Cure Cancer In His Past 50 Years of Holding Elective Office?

Maybe he was permitting cancer to continue killing people in order to hold it over our heads at precisely this moment.

While warming up the crowd at President Trump’s re-election rally in Orlando Tuesday, Donald Trump Jr. took a few swipes at the Democratic frontrunner.

"I hear brilliant guys like Joe Biden," he said to the fired-up crowd of some 20,000, "'Government has failed you.' Usually, as he's groping someone."


"There’s something off with that guy," Trump Jr. added. "Maybe yo'’re the problem, Joe Biden?" he suggested, referencing his decades in government -- a record which could cause the former vice president problems on key issues like the Hyde Amendment.

The president’s son also ridiculed Biden’s promise that he would "cure cancer" if he was elected president. "Why the hell didn't you do that over the last 50 years, Joe?"

Don Jr. also dubbed Joe Biden with a Low-Energy nickname -- "Floppy Joe." Which I don't think is meant to recall only his flip-flopping.

Earlier in the speech, Trump identified former President Obama taking credit for the good economy as the "stupidest statement in the history of politics and economics."

Trump continued by explaining Biden's "vested interest" in China, telling the crowd, "His son took $1.5 billion from the Chinese government as investment."

"The greatest investors in America have spent years trying to get Chinese money to invest with them. They can't do it. He goes there on a state trip and in ten days he comes back with $1.5 billion. Wonder why?" he said. "Now they're not a threat."

Trump then engaged the crowd with a little "role reversal" game.

"What do you think would be the media's reaction if Donald Trump Jr. took $1.50 from the Chinese? Not $1.5 billion like Joe Biden’s son. Just $1.50."

"They would lose their goddamn minds," he declared before hitting Biden for flip-flopping.

"But you know? Floppy Joe-- Floppy Joe, he's out there flip-flopping on everything. He doesn’t know what the hell he stands for anymore," Trump said, adding that the media will not call him out because "they want him to win."

Not to be outdone by Biden only deciding to do something about cancer after taking a wait-and-see-attitude about it for fifty years, Trump himself promised that the administration was close to curing cancer itself, as well as eradicating AIDS.

President Trump said during his 2020 reelection campaign kickoff speech late Tuesday that his administration is "getting closer” to curing cancer.

"We will push onward with new medical frontiers," Trump told a packed stadium of 20,000 in Orlando, Fla. "We will come up with the cures to many, many problems, to many, many diseases -- including cancer and others -- and we're getting closer all the time."

Trump also made a campaign promise of eradicating AIDS "once and for all," adding that "we’'e very close."

Oh, it's a promise? Was Joe Biden's statement a promise, or just puffery?

That said, there's a lot of promise that AIDS is a disease with a limited future and we might finally be getting cures to many cancers soon.

Alas, we've seen such hopes before. That's why I barely mention them any longer. I don't want to get hopes up.

But still, there are promising new drugs and techniques out there.

By the way, Joe Biden is a leftwing authoritarian. It's that "authoritarian" part that the leftwing media confuses with "being conservative," but it's just that Joe Biden never saw a problem he didn't think some government strongarming -- finding "pretexts" for government coercion -- couldn't fix.

But that's not "conservative" -- that's just lunchbox leftism.

I hate that idea, which many leftwing prosecutors also have, that laws are infinitely malleable and that we can just contrive whatever "pretext" we like to jail people who are doing things we don't like but are doing things which no law has been passed to outlaw.

If the law is undefined in this way -- if it's all up to a leftwing prosecutor's whim and readily mutable by the imaginative and unscrupulous -- then we are not a nation of laws not men, but men not laws.

One of the only things we have protecting us from the whims of politically motivated officials looking for professional advancement off jailing a citizen is the idea that laws mean what they say, and say what they mean.

Not that a clever operator like Andrew Weismann can twist plain meanings and make the law whatever he needs to collect his next political scalp.

The most immediate route to tyranny is granting a prosecutor the power to prosecute people not according to the letter of the law, but whatever he is capable of imagining the law to be in his own mercenary, careerist, status-seeking head.

The law is written in the statutory code, not sketched in penumbras and emanations of a corrupt politician's private dreamjournal.

And PS, they're almost all corrupt, and almost all prosecutors are politicians, or hope to be politicians officially one day.
