The Virtual President
I said I’d keep a low profile after Biden was inaugurated and I intend to keep my word and only write when events prompt me to. Thus far there have been plenty of material to draw from but the photograph that surfaced today puts the icing on the cake.
It’s not written in the constitution that the President of the United States must work or live in the White House and not every president has. However Joe Biden may be the very first “Virtual President” in history, since Facebook, YouTube and Twitter had not been invented during Washington’s time.
There several books written about foreign operatives controlling the office holder of the President of the United States, but I’ve never read one about an actual “Virtual President” before. It could be like in the Back to the Future movies where the president goes into the bathroom in the master suite, lights flicker and suddenly it transforms into the Oval Office.
What’s so strange about that? I read about the guy who built his own Oval Office complete with reproduced furnishings simply because he wanted to.
So with Zoom, Messenger and all the other high tech tools available how are we to know if in fact the President is in the White House at all? And what about the VP seated in the room but often just to the rear or appearing to be the center of attention during a presidential briefing?
Did president’s Obama or Trump do it that way too?
I suspect all the fuss we see in the news and the internet are precursors to a potential mostly peaceful transfer of power when the time is right to pull a number 25 or as Tom Bradley would say, an “OMAHA”.
We have been privileged to the “read outs” of presidential phone calls between President Biden and world leaders, but where are the actual transcript of those calls? For all we know they never happened.
Has China, Russia, Germany, Mexico or any world leader (Kim Jong Un) spoken publicly about talking with the US President? I haven’t seen or heard anything, have you?
Maybe I’m jumping the gun on this one but……….are we sure JB isn’t a clone? You know a “body double” like they use in the movies? I haven’t heard him or KH call anyone a liar in a long time, except when talking about #45. It makes me wonder……..Are we dreaming and when we wake up from our slumber we’ll find that Trump is still president and all is right with the world. Wouldn’t that be a hoot!……..unless you’re a democrat or a RINO.
Henry Ford once said that thinking is the hardest job in the world and that’s why so many people don’t even try (paraphrased by me)! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
