Biden Family Enmeshment or Worse: What Are Their Actual Relationships With Each Other?
Originally Published October 27th, 2020
Father and son? Or something more?
C'mon, we're all wondering the same thing. Beyond "business partners," what exactly was the nature of Joe Biden's relationship with his son, Hunter? The Bidens aren't exactly known for appropriate physical boundaries with each other.
When these photographs were taken by New York based photographer, Pari Dukovic, for a May 2016 Popular Mechanic article titled, Things My Father Taught Me, they may've raised a few eyebrows.
But now? Americans are taking a closer look.
What Do Jan 6th and the Boston Tea Party Have in Common? (The history you've never heard!)
So what do Jan 6th and the Boston Tea Party have in common?
Easy! The Wickedness in High Places in 1773 and 2021 both claim they were "lawless and violent" events...when, in fact, the opposite was true.
The Patriots of 1773 and the Patriots of 2021 both behaved impeccably. As I wrote on January 7th, "The dawn's early light revealed a sea of innumerable patriots already assembled. They prayed the Lord's Prayer together, pledged allegiance to our flag together, sang our national anthem together and cheered together."
But just as on Jan 6th, 2021, there were bad actors on December 16th, 1773, the date of the Boston Tea Party. "John Adams notes that there were bad actors (not patriots!) who wished, 'that as many dead Carcasses were floating in the Harbor as there are Chests of Tea,'" according to David Barton's Wallbuilders website.
The Bad Actors of 1773 did NOT get their way.
The Bad Actors of 2021 did.
This is the story of the Boston Tea Party as you've never heard it before. The story of Patriots who were as patient as they were peaceful. The story of an event carried out so impeccably, so carefully, so kindly, so ethically that during my research on the Boston Tea Party I turned to Michael and exclaimed, "Our Founding Fathers are adorable."
Read on, Patriots!
Six months ago, I thought the word "community" was the dumbest word in the English language. Having been raised in near isolation by a rabidly independent family who rarely received help nor offered assistance to others, "community" conveyed nothing to me except Hillary's sneered at comment, "It takes a village." Naturally, I equated "community" with liberal clap-trap.
But I was wrong.
The Patriot community is amazing. Do we realize how powerful we are!?!
I know Nancy Pelosi's white roots have already grown out since her infamous visit to that hair salon. But thanks to Donald Trump bringing it up at every awesome rally, it's not stale news yet!
The whole incident would've blown over in a jiffy if she'd had the humility and Erma Bombeckesque sense of humor to say, "Sorry, my bad. I just wanted to look my best for my voters."
But no! Nancy herself blew the incident into A Thing by projection, by attempting to gaslight the American voter by blaming the hair salon for setting her up. Basically a grown-up version of, "I know you are but what am I?" Typical narcissism. The faux apology that circles around to blame the victim.
Drunk on Freedom
The day was April 12th, 2012. It was a Thursday. I'd just turned 32. This was the first time my parents had allowed me to go somewhere and said, "You don't have to call us every time you arrive or leave a destination."
That's because I was with Michael, my fiancé of four days. We were in love and I was finally free! It was an intoxicating cocktail from which I've never recovered.
Today, I have the taste of that same heady elixir in my mouth again and I like it!
I like it a lot!
As soon as Donald Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, screams of "Narcissist!" resounded through cyberspace.
It was the perfect label at the perfect time. The whole Narcissism trend had just started and I was in the perfect place at the perfect time too. As Trump began his presidential campaign, I began writing PsychCentral's first dedicated narcissism blog, Narcissism Meets Normalcy.
"Trust your gut."
How many times have you heard those words?
But for victims of Narcissistic Abuse, it's well nigh impossible...impossible!
The very essence of Narcissistic Abuse is, "Don't trust your gut...nor your eyes, ears, emotions, intuition. Pay no attention to that man behind the the curtain. Trust only in me, your own darling narcissist. I own your reality. Fact is what I tell you it is. Not what you observe and feel, Pumpkin."
Or to quote my father's favorite saying, "Wrong again, Buckwheat."
I was "Buckwheat" and I was wrong. Again.
