The DNC has decided to replace Biden.

As David Dayen explains at the Democratic Party’s American Prospect magazine, under the headline “Why Is the DNC Holding an Early Nomination?”, the reason is not in order to lock-in Biden’s nomination early but instead the opposite: to select as early as possible (he thinks it might be as early as July 21st, but I think it might be even a week or so earlier than that and finalized by the Party’s Convention Rules Committee on July 19th in preparation for a formal “virtual roll call” of only DNC leaders, which will then take place perhaps on July 22nd) an alternative candidate (selected by those leaders) who can have enough appeal to the Party’s megadonors so as to be viable against the now even better-funded Republican nominee Trump, and also be attractive enough to the voters in the swing states so as for the Party to be able possibly to win the November 5th election. They appear to have already decided to unburden themselves of the Biden albatross, and so the only question for them now is to settle upon which of the prospective alternative candidates will have enough appeal to both the megadonors and the public so as to become elected as America’s President.

In order for this switch to happen, the megadonors will first need to offer to the Biden family sufficient inducements in order to persuade them to persuade Joseph Biden to withdraw. If Biden won’t do that, then the individuals upon whose generosity he has been relying for legal protection and for a luxurious and honored post-Presidency, and for their support to the Biden family, will instead abandon them, as defective goods, for their ultimate disloyalty to them. Of course, these are not written contracts, but verbal ones, which can therefore be freely violated, like “handshake deals” (which are totally unenforceable — and even criminal — whenever the transaction itself was illegal, such as bribes).

On July 3rd, I headlined “Powerful Evidence Democratic Nominee Will Be Whitmer or Buttigieg, Not Biden” and explained, based upon the Party’s internal polling in swing states and Kamala Harris’s political failures to-date, why the candidates whom the DNC has been seriously considering and privately polling have been Kamala Harris, Gavin Newsom, Gretchen Whitmer, and Pete Buttigieg, and why only Whitmer and Buttigieg appear, so far, to have the best chances for the DNC to unburden itself of the Biden disaster and to open up an authentic prospect of being able to retain the White House after 2024.

If I turn out to be wrong and that the DNC will indeed appoint Biden as its nominee, then I expect a landslide election of Trump and disastrous results for the Democratic Party also in Congress, both of which might turn out to be so extreme as to end the Democratic Party as the Whig Party ended in 1860 and became followed by the Republican Party.


Investigative historian Eric Zuesse’s latest book, AMERICA’S EMPIRE OF EVIL: Hitler’s Posthumous Victory, and Why the Social Sciences Need to Change, is about how America took over the world after World War II in order to enslave it to U.S.-and-allied billionaires. Their cartels extract the world’s wealth by control of not only their ‘news’ media but the social ‘sciences’ — duping the public.
