Well-Connected DC Journalist: “I Don’t Want an Investigation. I Want a Coronation of Joe Biden.”

Well-Connected DC Journalist: “I Don’t Want an Investigation. I Want a Coronation of Joe Biden.”

“I don’t want justice, whatever that may be. I want a win, the removal of Donald Trump from office”

Martin Tolchin co-founded The Hill newspaper, helped launch Politico, and worked for the New York Times. This is a man who has been a major player in Washington, DC, media.

In a recent letter to the editor at the New York Times, Tolchin said the quiet part out loud.

Joe Concha writes at The Hill:

Washington journalist: ‘I want a coronation’ of Biden, not an investigation of allegations

Washington journalist Martin Tolchin in a letter to the editor published Tuesday in The New York Times argued that he wants a “coronation” for former Vice President Joe Biden and not an investigation of a sexual assault allegation against the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

“I don’t want an investigation. I want a coronation of Joe Biden,” Tolchin, a founder of Politico who is also a former top editor of The Hill, wrote in the piece.

“Would he make a great president? Unlikely. Would he make a good president? Good enough. Would he make a better president than the present occupant? Absolutely,” Tolchin wrote in a letter headlined “Joe Biden and Tara Reade: Whom to Believe?”…

“I don’t want justice, whatever that may be. I want a win, the removal of Donald Trump from office, and Mr. Biden is our best chance,” he wrote.

Guy Benson of Townhall posted an image of the letter on Twitter:

Chrissy Clark of The Federalist offers this observation:

Tolchin is saying out loud what “women’s advocate organizations” and so-called feminist icon Hillary Clinton have yet to admit: Reade’s allegation is politically inconvenient.

Organizations that allegedly advocate for women’s rights have been silent during Biden’s sexual assault allegations. Examples include Planned Parenthood, NARAL, Emily’s List, the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund, and more. So-called “feminist” Clinton endorsed Biden during an online panel on women’s issues, while ignoring the hypocrisy of discussing women’s issues with a man facing sexual assault allegations. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is also among the hypocrites saying they are “satisfied” with Biden’s response to sexual assault allegations.

Tolchin at least deserves credit for his honesty. He is merely saying out loud what many people in his industry are thinking.

For some reason old leftists default to privilege, tyranny, and dynasticism.

Why can’t they be like normal people and default to lime jello?

Mmmmm. Lime jello….

We should be grateful for the honesty of these types of comments by prominent Dhimmi-crats in D.C. and elsewhere, as they accentuate/illustrate — better than any conservative commentary can — contemporary Dhimmi-crats’ brazen and unabashed arrogance, hypocrisy and moral bankruptcy/capriciousness (said standard of morality depending entirely upon an assessment of the political affiliation of the actors in question).

These people are utterly despicable, and, the irony really is that they are held up as representing the best and most-accomplished members of their miserable, totalitarian Party.

    Get a load of this.

    CBS “News” Faked Footage of Cars Lining Up at a Covid Testing Site To Make the Lines Appear Much Longer Than They Actually Were

    Ace of Spades

      Sadly, this is where we’re at, now — the media propagandist-prostitutes are so desperate to propagate contrived and fallacious narratives that are damaging to conservatives, at-large, and, to Trump, in particular, that they’ll engage in blatant and brazen mendacity and deceit, to serve those aims.

        They’ve always been there. But they’ve never had to reveal themselves so desperately.

        What treasonous scum.

        It’s just a crying shame we have another boehner in high office: AG Barr.

      So CBS wants the virus to spread further, and maybe kill people? The obvious effect of this propaganda would be that some people will avoid getting tested because the line is too long for them.

    Agree….I love it when idiots like this out themselves in the age of permanent digital records.

stevewhitemd | May 6, 2020 at 11:21 am

But if you disagree with him you’re a racist.

The most damning exchange in Biden’s interview with Mika was his statement, paraphrased, that voters might learn something about his history of meetings and writings and use that information, out of “context”, to influence their votes.

    McGehee in reply to MTED. | May 6, 2020 at 12:42 pm

    “Mister Vice President! They’re telling lies about you in Ohio!”

    “Never mind that! They’re telling the truth about me in Washington!”

The sheer insanity of backing a senile old man who was never very smart or very competent (or at all honest) to begin with is breathtaking.

I understand you want to beat Trump. That’s actually legitimate for the opposition party. But to pick a creature like Biden to do it is bizarre.

Comanche Voter | May 6, 2020 at 11:34 am

Don’t confuse this fellow with the facts.

He’s defaulted to an argument worthy of a 3 year old in a temper tantrum, “I want what I want and I want it now!”

I get it–he doesn’t like the current President. And he’s willing to do “whatever it takes” to do that. But there’s a good chunk of the country that wants nothing to do with a senile old hair sniffing female pawing pervert in the white house. And to prevent that, they’ll vote for Trump. You can’t beat something–no matter how bad the Orange Man is–with nothing. And nothing is what the Democrats have right now.

Unmitigated crap! In his world, ethics is nonexistent. The old days of “smoke filled rooms” much better candidates were picked. Now the citizens cannot be trusted to elect our leaders. Let’s put this idiot in charge. NOT!

Many have lamented that democrats would vote for Hitler if it meant them getting power.

A Red just lettin’ the Red out.

“I WANT a coronation of Joe Biden.”

If wishes were fishes
we could all have a fry
and if horse turds were biscuits
we could eat till we die

When they tell you who they are……BELIEVE THEM!

Tovarishch Tolchin looks a wee bit like Molotov, except for the nasty little moustache he doesn’t have.

Don’t care what you “want”, buddy. What you’ll get is what you deserve: payback.

What these highly placed media types like this fool don’t realize is that they are dead to most people. No credibility. No product, just hot air; I bet people will vote Trump just because of this asshole.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to JimWoo. | May 6, 2020 at 12:41 pm

    They will when they hear his crack.

    Right now it’s “Nochin….. Who?????”

“Tolchin at least deserves credit for his honesty. He is merely saying out loud what many people in his industry are thinking”

They have said “By any means necessary.” Their only measure is absolute control.

Arrogance on display. Ethics banished and notwithstanding. I have nothing but contempt for people like this even if he does utter a truth about his beliefs.

Hope the #MeToo and #BelieveAllWomen crowd is paying close attention. They’re being sacrificed on the altar of power.

Any liberal with 2 brain cells to rub together ought realize Dem endorsement of their pet wedge/special interest group issue isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.

    Tel in reply to MrE. | May 6, 2020 at 1:02 pm

    The problem is that Democrat women feel they have nowhere else to go. And to a certain extent, they are right. Males in neither party take women very seriously.

      MrE in reply to Tel. | May 6, 2020 at 4:03 pm

      I didn’t down vote you, Tel. During the Kavanaugh hearings, there were things in evidence that speak to the character of the parties. Sen. Feinstein, a Democrat, had Dr. Ford’s accusation from the time he was nominated and brought it forward only when Kavanaugh’s confirmation was imminent. It begs the question whether Dr. Ford would have been heard at all if Kavanaugh’s nomination was in jeopardy. To air Dr. Ford’s accusation only in keeping the political winds speaks to the genuineness of Democrat party solidarity with women. Dr. Ford was used, and that to me is truly shameful. I would also surmise that Sen. Feinstein holding Dr. Ford’s letter like she did, is evidence that she really didn’t believe Dr. Ford and was reluctant to use it against Kavanaugh. Certainly Dr. Ford’s accusation was absent any detail and corroborating witnesses.

      Conversely, senate Republicans weren’t required to entertain the accusations of Dr. Ford and Ms. Swetnick like they did. With a clear majority in the senate, Republicans could have taken the approach implied by journalist Martin Tolchin (above) and simply declared Feinstein out of order, violating senate rules, or the complaints as lacking detail, corroborating witnesses, or far beyond any reasonable statute of limitations. But they didn’t. They held hearings and had the FBI investigate the claims. They arranged for Dr. Ford to be questioned by a woman who I hope you’ll admit, was sensitive to Dr. Ford and accorded her respect.

      For the record, political compass pegs me as a centrist with a best fit Libertarian party. Of course they’re not viable and doubtful ever will be in my lifetime. So being the “he who governs least governs best” type, I tend to caucus with Republicans. Concerning women’s issues in general, I’m the married father of 3 girls and their fiercest advocate and defender. I have a personal belief set concerning abortion for example – which would have been painfully tested if any of my daughters had ever become pregnant and wanted an abortion. I’d have offered to raise their child as my own – but if they’d chosen abortion – I’d have been there for them. Broken hearted of course – but at the end of the day, my love for them is greater than my ideology.

      If you truly believe that, wouldn’t you choose honesty over deceit?

TX-rifraph | May 6, 2020 at 1:06 pm

I give Trump credit. The old ways of destroying opponents have not worked on Trump. In their panic, the leftists are coming out into the open with their sociopath thinking. They are moving to open warfare out of desperation. Their only path to power is deception and it is no longer very effective. He pushes Biden because he is the best they have. Think about that – the best! They fear Trump term II more than anything. And, they see it coming. To see an unethical POS like this in psychological pain is lovely music and great for the USA.

Ace of Spades today has a post about the people who agree with Mr. Tolchin. The tweets are frightening.

LibraryGryffon | May 6, 2020 at 4:52 pm

I find it telling that this eejit wants a coronation.

Not an inauguration, a *coronation*.

Tells me every thing I need to know about how he views the voters, as subjects, not citizens.

    healthguyfsu in reply to LibraryGryffon. | May 6, 2020 at 4:57 pm

    A coronation for someone he doesn’t even consider to be a good candidate no less.

    Coronation is his not-so-subtle code word for victory party.

franciscodanconia | May 6, 2020 at 5:59 pm

The Left just loves the idea of a Versailles on the Potomac.

They demand a quasi-monarchy/dictatorship, not desire, demand.

I don’t want an argument. I want these treasonous rats put into poverty.

Any empty balloons left at the Javits Center to ship to the Joe Biden Amtrak Station in Wilminhton? And what’s he gonna do if someone was on the ball in 2017, made it a point to get into the U. Del. archives when there was no heightened scrutny, photographed the stuff that has Biden worried now and sends it to Wikileaks in September?

Pouncekitty | May 7, 2020 at 11:52 am

Fortunately, most Americans don’t listen to these poisoned dog fake “journalists” anymore. All the Leftnuts have suicided themselves with their non-stop Trump hate and mental meltdowns. MSM = Death.

Right, LibraryGryffon.

Evidently, Ol’ Marty Tolchin’s confused. US presidents, beginning with and in an unbroken chain from our first, George Washington, don’t do coronations and other such lion-fur-clad-drapery and puffery. Offered such ceremony and the limitless power indicated by wearing the crown of a king, the Virginia farmer and triumphant Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army instead agreed to “solemnly swear to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States,” and thereby discard the notion of a king’s divine destiny and his or her relatively absolute power. The American president, on the other hand, is and will be duty-bound to exercise limited, enumerated power, a global first for heads of state. The Constitution is, and ultimately We the People are, as the document identifies at its very start, the sovereign.

Queen Elizabeth II was coronated in England, and for the UK and all the Commonwealth, in 1952. She is still so crowned today.

Joe Biden will not be, that’s for sure. Nor is it likely that he will he be inaugurated in the US in 2021.

Get over it, Marty. Act like an American for a change.

And see your doctor. Your confusion, a known, possible neurological sign, could be due to infection with coronavirus. Have you had a diagnostic test recently for the presence of the virus?

(Hey, maybe that’s what you were thinking, you know, deep down. Sometimes, when we’re sick, our bodies talk to us. Anyway, dude, get some help.)

Of course, that’s a king’s divine right, not his or her divine destiny.

Eh, wonder if this journo imbicile ever heard that old lament “You can’t always get what you want…”? And in this case he aint gonna get shit that his shit for brains wants. The punk ass bitch is only in for disappointment. And that my friends is why these jerk-offs always look so depressed. They have miserable lives.
