      Story from https://nypost.com/2021/11/24/biden-spending-thanksgiving-at-private-equity-billionaires-home/ .

      President Biden and first lady Jill Biden said they will spend Thanksgiving at the Nantucket home of a private-equity billionaire.

      In a statement to reporters, the White House said, “The First Family will stay at the home of their friend, David Rubenstein, as they have done previously.” The buyout tycoon’s Nantucket spread spans 13 acres and is worth a reported $20 million.

      Rubenstein, who is worth $4.6 billion, according to a Forbes estimate, co-founded private-equity behemoth The Carlyle Group. The Washington-based firm, which boasts $293 billion in assets, is known for its leveraged buyouts and investments that have included Dunkin’, Oriental Trading and Hertz.

      Biden and his family have spent most Thanksgivings on the upscale Massachusetts island since the 1970s. They stayed at Rubenstein’s compound before — once in 2014 when Biden was vice president.

      Joe and Jill Biden are oblivious idiots.  This is his first Thanksgiving as President, and it just reminds everyone who notices that his real friends are billionaires.

      Of course, I’m sure they won’t talk politics and Rubenstein won’t attempt to influence Biden.  After all, as Psaki said yesterday,

      “This is a time to put politics aside, spend time with your loved ones and talk about what you’re grateful for.”

      shit on their dining table, they would eat it all up and ask for more.

      Corporate America consists of totalitarian entities laser-focused on short-term greed.

      “This is a time to put politics aside, spend time with your loved ones and talk about what you’re grateful for,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday.

      Not many people of the working-class will be spending Thanksgiving with Wall Street billionaire tycoons.

      Give and Get Back: Reciprocity

      As human beings, we’re wired to treat people the way they treat us.

      Reciprocation is the “most potent of the weapons of influence.” According to the rule of reciprocation people feel compelled to give to someone who gives to them. Reciprocation is found in all societies.

      the holidays at the White House and the press would go all gaga over the menu and the china service and the decor? It seemed like an absolute expression of privilege then. Now, it feels positively down-home compared to reading about their holiday plans.

      These fucking bastards are just shitting on us every day now. Pelosi with her 5 mansions, Obama with his 4, Manchin, Sinema, etc., etc. When are the people going to figure it out?

        Bill Clinton’s Telecommunications Act of 1996 was the big one.

        So if you watch Oligarchy News you’ll never even know, and just be happy that the Orange Man is gone, and instead worry about whether if you are properly woke.

        If you look other places, like here at JPR, you know. But if you go to SV and think you are getting broad news coverage – well, enjoy the echo chamber.

        JPR does have like minds on some subjects, but definitely not all! And I really, really like that almost all disagreements do their best to be supported by facts, not just opinions.

        Though these days the real facts on virtually anything are hard to come by, especially when media spin is treated as globally held facts, and hides the truth.

          Yes @jpnw, thank you and everyone here for places like JPR! At least here, whether I agree or disagree with someone, they listen and respond intelligently and respectfully. I would like to think that we have the ability to change our minds when presented with evidence and not get stuck taking entrenched positions and forgetting to keep focused on the real fight against the scumbag corporate criminals, corrupt duopoly, and slimy lying big tech/big media!

      Biden is in very bad shape, and the extremely secure mansion of a billionaire could be the setting for dealing with the end game to that.

      Jill and Joe Biden would want assurances before agreeing to anything. Although Biden might not be planning on going anywhere anytime soon, and the conversations could be about dealing with Vice President Harris.

      The frostiness and awkwardness they had around each other while serving up meals at a shelter suggest to my mind that Harris is preparing the ground for eventually inquiring among Biden’s cabinet if they thought he needed to step down. That would be done in secret, but once Harris made that move it would mean she was prepared to not be Biden’s running mate in 2024, and also prepared to later make that same inquiry, and have that leaked to the press. That would be the end of Biden’s spokespeople being able to credibly claim that he was preparing to run again.

      The party wants to avoid that, but Harris could be signalling that she knows the strength of the cards in her hand, and is done taking crap from Biden’s team, friends and allies. And Biden might have been appraised of this, hence his coldness to Harris at the shelter.

      Harris and her team can’t be so naive as to not see how Harris doesn’t figure into Team Biden’s plans, moving forward.
