    President Joe Biden and his family’s decision to hold onto power despite his disastrous performance during the June 27 CNN presidential debate and his demonstrative lack of situational awareness during his ABC News interview last Friday sends a firm signal. The Biden camp is defiant and will ignore fellow democratic candidates down ticket on the ballots come November's Election Day. Could this decision be based on more than the election - like pardons down the road? 

    Biden wrote a letter to “fellow Democrats” on Monday explaining that he is staying in the presidential race despite more democratic donors, leaders, and candidates openly calling for the president to step aside and/or drop out because of the potential damage his name will have on democrats running down ballot.

    “I want you to know that despite all the speculation in the press and elsewhere, I am firmly committed to staying in this race, to running this race to the end, and to beating Donald Trump,” Biden wrote in a letter. 

    “I have had extensive conversations with the leadership of the party, elected officials, rank and file members, and most importantly, Democratic voters over these past 10 days or so. I have heard the concerns that people have – their good faith fears and worries about what is at stake in this election. I am not blind to them.”

    Biden used the excuse to justify his decision that the voters chose him and dropping out now would say that “this process didn’t matter.”

    “I feel a deep obligation to the faith and the trust the voters of the Democratic Party have placed in me to run this year. It was their decision to make. Not the press, not the punditsnot the big donors, not any selected group of individuals, no matter how well intentioned. The voters – and the voters alone – decide the nominee of the Democratic Party. How can we stand for democracy in our nation if we ignore it in our own party? I cannot do that. I will not do that.”

    “The question of how to move forward has been well-aired for over a week now. And it’s time for it to end. We have one job. And that is to beat Donald Trump. We have 42 days to the Democratic Convention and 119 days to the general election. Any weakening of resolve or lack of clarity about the task ahead only helps Trump and hurts us. It is time to come together, move forward as a unified party, and defeat Donald Trump.”

    The president’s letter seems Machiavellian and disingenuous at best said some democrats who wish to remain anonymous. They cited  elements that cannot be ignored. The Biden family and the president’s re-election campaign advisers have chosen several paths of icing out any opponents during this primary cycle. 

    “This is not all about Trump although Biden continues to bash Trump in the letter,” said one source. “It is not even about democrats holding onto power.” 

    “This is about Bidens holding onto power and putting other democrats at risk at this pivotal point when Biden is falling behind in battleground states when pitted against Donald Trump,” the source added.

    The Biden campaign and Democratic National Committee ordered a political swat team to take on third parties with a special focus on Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and No Labels, which ultimately did not announce a presidential ticket. No Labels did file a formal complaint to the Department of Justice over the threats lodged at parties affiliated with No Labels. 

    The DNC and other political action committees have paid a fortune in legal fees by challenging Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. in state courts over state ballots just like they have tried to keep Trump off state ballots. 

    The Biden campaign studiously set out to reject the Presidential Debate Commission’s format since 1988. In partnership with CNN over the June 27 presidential debate, bogus criteria was created in order to achieve and justify the exclusion of Kennedy on the debate stage. 

    President Joe Biden’s conscious decision not to provide Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Secret Service Protection after six serious requests is historically unprecedented over the last 56 years. That Biden decision alone has established a dangerous precedent for any presidential candidate’s safety in the future. 

    The notion now being talked about in both all political camps is far more serious than a presidential campaign. 

    Some Americans are asking, “Is Joe Biden’s cognitive dissonance and mental acuity decline a national security risk?”

    How selfish, self-serving and Machiavellian is the Biden family acting towards their fellow democrats, or is this decision the only option for Joe Biden to preserve, if he so chooses, a possible pardon for his son and family in the future? 

    It would not be unprecedented if Joe Biden chose to pardon a family member.

    President William Jefferson Clinton pardoned his brother Roger Clinton before he left the White House, and disappointed his brother when President Clinton did not pardon his six friends whom he asked his brother to pardon, as reported in the Los Angeles Times decades ago.
