Biden Says The Quiet Part Out Loud Tyler Durden

[Joe Biden] doesn’t know his limitations, he’s headstrong, and he’s garrulous. So, he is prone to spilling the beans when he’s been briefed about the plans for the schemes they are implementing.

That happened Monday when he made a brief speech to the Business Roundtable – a group of powerful executives, just the sort of people Biden loves to schmooze and (he thinks) impress.

Toward the end, as his voice and demeanor were weakening, he blurted out the real agenda:

‘I think this presents us with some significant opportunities to make some real changes.

‘You know, we are at an inflection point, I believe, in the world economy, not just the world economy, in the world, occurs every three or four generations.

‘As one of my, as the one of the top military people said to me in a secure meeting the other day, 60 million people died between 1900 and 1946 and since then we established a liberal world order and that hadn’t happened in a long while.

‘A lot of people died, but nowhere near the chaos.

‘And now’s the time when things are shifting.

‘We’re going, there’s gonna be a new world order out there and we’ve got to lead it.’
