Extremist website implodes along with Joe Biden
ThinkProgress, the radically left-wing website you’ve likely never heard of, was faring so badly it was put up for sale in July. The bitter pill the site was forced to swallow was that there were no interested purchasers. Founded to bash the presidency of George W. Bush, it promoted absurd extremist policies, theories and candidates, ensuring its place in the financial dumper.
In June the Daily Beast reported ThinkProgress was suffering “layoffs and cutbacks.” The hard-left site that didn’t let facts get in the way of its agenda was $3 million in the red, $350,000 of which was due to plummeting advertising revenues. The site was described as an “editorially independent project of the Democratic Party think tank Center for American Progress.”
On Friday, the harsh reality of a lack of potential buyers became unavoidable and the death knell tolled as the website gasped its last breaths and shut down.
Spewing far-left extremist views as the Trump administration racks up accomplishments is obviously not a recipe for success for either the website or Dem candidates.
The pressure is intense. Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden suffered an eye hemorrhage (photo) during a recent CNN televised town hall on climate change. He was often incoherent (brief video) as he read another speech interrupted by coughing spasms. In 1988 Biden underwent a 13-hour surgery for a brain aneurysm following which a priest was on hand if the need arose to administer last rites.
Despite his difficulties, according to the Real Clear Politics polling aggregator, “Slow Joe” Biden still holds the lead for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination.
There could be no greater news for President Donald Trump and his supporters.
