On days like today, it seems that nothing – nothing! – can move the main lines on the Vegas election odds boards.
Yesterday, Joe Biden – the Uniter In Chief™ — released a statement that his administration would be cutting monoclonal antibody treatments to several states.
Namely, red states.
More namely, red states that have defied lockdowns, punted on extended unemployment and rent moratoria, and banned mask mandates.
Even more namely, red states that have done all this while nevertheless maintaining non-catastrophic levels of coronavirus hospitalizations and deaths.
Of course, these states have accomplished such a narrative-bucking trend by allowing their residents to enjoy the various Constitutional protections which have yet to be shredded within their own borders.
These states have allowed their residents to choose between vaccines and therapeutics.
Not one or the other.
And while we mostly stick to dispassionate analyses of the political market so we can make informed wagers in the political betting market, it’s hard to keep a poker face affixed firmly across the old visage when actual death panels are afoot.
It’s even harder to understand how this kind of thing is tolerated.
For all the “Trump is a tyrant” bellyaching these last five years, Literally Hitler™ himself never withheld lifesaving drugs from tens of millions of Americans in the middle of an alleged pandemic when there was no actual shortage of drugs or logistical need to triage medical intervention.
But here we are, with real proof, direct from the stuttering old horse’s mouth, that he – and he alone, damn you! – will decide whether or not you can seek effective medical treatment.
Back in the Obama years, Biden was all in on the Affordable Care Act. Healthcare, he said, was everyone’s right.
It turns out that’s only true if you vote blue.
But despite the death panel now propelled into actual fact from mere forewarning, the Biden betting lines on this dictator’s odds to keep his job, to not be impeached – and even to be reelected – haven’t budged an inch.
Not one inch.
And we hate to say it, but the whole thing makes sense.
Look at Andrew Cuomo.
As governor of New York, Cuomo’s executive order to place COVID-positive retirees – the population most at risk for serious complications and even death from the virus – back into their ill-equipped nursing homes led directly to the deaths of 12,000+ New Yorkers.
When that happened, Cuomo was heavily favored by bettors to not only survive any impeachment or recall attempt, but to actually win reelection.
He even got a seven-figure book deal out of the decision!
Cuomo, of course, was eventually forced to live up to New York’s Democratic Governor standard and resign in disgrace.
But it wasn’t because he killed a bunch of vulnerable senior citizens.
No, it was because he allegedly made passes at a bunch of young, female staffers and slapped someone’s butt one time.
Once that news dropped, the Cuomo odds reflected the eventual reality immediately.
Bettors know what sinks a pol, and killing American citizens ain’t it.
Remember, Biden survived Afghanistan with nothing more than a temporary dip in his approval ratings.
This latest move won’t even move those lines.
The simple fact is this: If you’re a conservative, half the country wants you dead.
If you want to make your own medical decisions privately with your own doctor, half the country wants you dead.
If you’re scared of experimental drugs – or if you simply don’t trust experimental drugs – half the country wants you dead.
And that half is currently running the show.
It’s a wonder there aren’t civil war odds on the Vegas betting sites yet.
Oh, well. Maybe the alien invasion will save us.
It’s our last, best hope for peace.

Will Joe Biden complete his first term as US President?
- Yes -175 (-175)
- No +135 (+135)
No, but not because he’s trying to commit mass murder by proxy.
He’ll leave office early only because of his advanced dementia and the potential for an entire decade of President Kamala Harris™ if the Democrats get Slow Joe out right after the 2022 Midterms.
Year That Joe Biden Exits Office
- 2025 +110(+110)
- 2022 +400 (+400)
- Not Before 2026 +400 (+400)
- 2021 +550 (+550)
- 2023 +750 (+750)
- 2024 +1400 (+1400)
But hedge with 2022 and 2024 if you’re so inclined.
Will Joe Biden leave office via impeachment?
- No -1200 (-1200)
- Yes +500 (+500)
He’ll be impeached and acquitted.

Those days are over.
Joe Biden Approval Rating On October 1, 2021
- Over 46% -120 (46% -120)
- Under 46% -120 (46% -120)
Since these polling firms all skew Democrat with the exception of Rasmussen and Trafalgar, take the over.
Remember, Biden just ordered the deaths of countless red state conservatives, which is something his base genuinely appreciates.
