    The house, which used to belong to the late Secretary of State Alexander Haig, is located on the Gold Coast of McLean, Virginia, overlooking the Potomac River. It was purchased for $4.25 million in June 2016 by Mark Ein, a venture capitalist and owner of the Washington Kastles tennis team.

    It is unclear how much Biden pays in rent. Estimates from Zillow indicate it is likely $20,000 a month—provided Ein is charging the fair market rate. Biden rents the property, despite owning two houses in his home state of Delaware, including a recently purchased $2.7 million vacation home on the Atlantic Ocean.

    Not bad for a guy who has spent almost his entire career earning a Senator's paycheck.
    But he just lives in the basement, maybe.

    Per Wikipedia


    In June 2017 the couple bought a $2.7 million, off-the-water vacation home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware near Cape Henlopen State Park, where they planned to host members of their extended family.[71][72] Their ability to purchase this family property was due in part to deals they signed with Flatiron Books upon leaving office, with Biden contracted to write one and her husband two. Indeed, by 2019 the couple reported some $15 million in income since leaving the vice presidency, including $700,000 in speaking engagements for her. The couple also substantially increased their charitable giving during this period.


    Sounds like they made out pretty well *after* Biden left as VP, exactly as you'd expect a well liked former VP to do (don't @ me. Lindsey Graham practically said he'd take a bullet for him).

    So MM, put your money where your mouth is... Let's go through the last, say, 10 years (or however many you want) of the Bidens' tax returns and see how swampy it gets if you're so convinced about this. Or any of you RWNJs.

    It's most often attributed to Saul Alinsky in his book "Rules For Radicals" which is basically the handbook for the Democrat party.

    The quote may be misattributed but it still accurately describes Goebbels' and Trump's propaganda techniques. The goal is to destroy the concept of truth by "flooding the channel with [Trump's gray matter]."

    Regardless, is MM willing to dive into Biden's tax returns and figure out how swampy it gets? If he's not worried he's violating the 9th commandment, of course.

    For those among us who want to raise an issue with my mentioning the 9th commandment: MM is implying that Biden gained his wealth through immoral means. That is a factual statement which can be resolved by looking at Biden's tax returns. To continue spreading this claim when the means to dispel or confirm it is readily at hand is possibly bearing false witness.

    Wikiquote has it listed as misattributed


    • Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty



    [*The above includes the hyperlinks as well as misspelling of Nuremberg*]


    Here is the speech Goebbels made at Nuremberg in 1934 from Calvin University's "German Propaganda Archive" and mentioned as the possible "source" for the misquote.

    The saying has been also attributed to Marx, Lenin and Hitler as well, while an essay in The Routledge Handbook of the Political Economy of Science claims it is a concept introduced by the New Right.

    Shockingly MM appears unwilling to actually look at the publicly available Biden tax records to determine the propriety of his income post 2016. Will it stop him from smearing Biden? As sure Jesus rose from the dead he won't stop.

    Most often attributed to Saul Alinsky by whom, Breitbart? It's actually most often attributed to Goebbels and other far right fascists, and is still employed as a strategy by many of those in todays GOP along with their media propagandists. Hey, lying is an effective strategy for the unprincipled fascist against a dumbed down public. Just ask Trump.

    Rick Wilson with a fun article on the subject. (Contains blue language so here's a google search with the article as the #1 hit).


    The most telling revelation I ever received about Donald Trump was from a New York hedge-fund bro for whom I did some occasional speechwriting. In late summer 2015, I went to him and said, “We have to stop this guy. He’s a billionaire. He could fund his own campaign.” The hedge bro looked at me and laughed: “Trump’s not a billionaire. I’m a billionaire. Trump is a clown, living on credit.”

    I was reminded of that by Trump’s Twitter meltdown—a hissy-fit, foot-stomping ragefest against the Supreme Court—after winning a major portion of one case over his mysterious tax returns.

    He understands that when his taxes are unraveled before a New York grand jury and the inner workings of his multifarious business schemes are brought into the light of day, the picture won’t be of a successful multibillionaire mogul turned president, but one of that clown, living on credit, a third-rate real-estate developer with a first-rate talent for fleecing banks and vendors.

    The sad part is that regardless of what it shows, Trump will tell his base that it shows a successful multi billionaire and anything that doesn’t support that is fake news.

    And they will believe him.
