You’ll probably hear about this one way or the other and the right-wing media is sure to spin it God alone knows how — probably as anti-Biden, since that seems to be the predominant theme of the day. They must really be scared of Uncle Joe. NBC News: DES MOINES, Iowa — Former Secretary of State John Kerry — one of Joe Biden’s highest-profile endorsers — was overheard Sunday on the phone at a Des Moines hotel explaining what he would have to do to enter the presidential race amid “the possibility of Bernie Sanders taking down the Democratic Party — down whole.” Sitting in the lobby restaurant of the Renaissance Savery hotel, Kerry was overheard by an NBC News analyst saying “maybe I’m f—ing deluding myself here” and explaining that in order to run, he’d have to step down from the board of Bank of America and give up his ability to make paid speeches. Kerry said donors like venture capitalist Doug Hickey would have to “raise a couple of million,” adding that such donors “now have the reality of Bernie.” Asked about the call later on Sunday, Kerry said that he was “absolutely not” contemplating joining the Democratic primary race. He reiterated this sentiment in a tweet later, saying that “any report otherwise is f—ing (or categorically) false.” Minutes later, he deleted the tweet and reposted it without the expletive.[…] He told NBC News later on Sunday that, “This is a complete and total misinterpretation based on overhearing only one side of a phone conversation. A friend who watches too much cable called me wondering whether I’d ever jump into the race late in the game if Democrats were choosing an unelectable nominee. I listed all the reasons I could not possibly do that and would not — and will not under any circumstances — do that.” The point is well taken that Bernie Sanders’ candidacy is unsettling to a great many Democrats. And granted, Sanders was reported as leading Biden in Iowa in polls as recently as last week. So these are valid indicia of concern. But bear one thing in mind at all times: since the advent of Trump, politics as we know it has undergone a strange metamorphosis and you can forget business as usual. Anything goes. That said, remember a passage in the Bible which is relevant to these times. Matthew 24:6, “Watch out that no one deceives you…You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen but the end is still to come.” You are gong to hear a great many strange things about the campaign in the next nine months. Chill out, check reliable sources and know that the end of Trump is still to come. One way or the other, we will be rid of him, so be of good cheer.
