Biden LOSES the American Samoa caucus in embarrassing defeat: President is beaten by no-name candidate Jason Palmer in shock upset in the Pacific territory

  • President Joe Biden has lost one Super Tuesday contest – American Samoa’s caucus
  • Entrepreneur Jason Palmer, who visited the territory, beat the sitting president by 11 votes, earning him four Democratic delegates 
  • Palmer is a Baltimore-based investor whose campaign website crashed once his win was announced 

President Joe Biden suffered a shock defeat on Super Tuesday, losing American Samoa’s caucuses to unknown candidate Jason Palmer. 

The president was beaten in the tiny U.S. territory in the South Pacific that isn’t awarded Electoral College votes but can still send Democratic delegates to this summer’s convention. 

Just 91 Democrats turned out to vote, with Palmer receiving 51 votes to Biden’s 40. American Samoa has just six delegates, with Palmer expected to earn four and Biden two. 

The tiny Pacific Ocean American territory is 5,000 miles away from the U.S. mainland and is a 14-hour flight west of Los Angeles.

‘I didn’t actually fly to American Samoa,’ the Baltimore-based investor said Tuesday night on CNN. ‘I actually did multiple virtual town halls and spoke with the nationals there because, you may not know, but people in American Samoa are not necessarily automatically Americans citizens.’ 

During the 2020 Democratic primary race, American Samoa was the only contest to be won by billionaire Michael Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor.

President Joe Biden lost the American Samoa Democrat caucus on Super Tuesday, denying the president a complete primary sweep of all states and territories.

Decision Desk HQ called the race at around 9:30 p.m. Eastern.

The territory is worth 11 Democrat delegates.

Biden lost to Democrat Jason Palmer, an entrepreneur and investor who previously worked with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, according to his campaign.

With 99% of the expected vote reporting, Palmer leads with 56% of the vote, followed by Biden with 44%.

The results mark Biden’s first loss in the nominating race so far. That doesn’t meaningfully change his enormous lead overall, however, as he looks set for a general election rematch with former President Donald Trump.

Palmer told ABC News late Tuesday that he realized he had won American Samoa at precisely 9:30 p.m. ET while sitting in at a hotel in Washington, D.C., when it became apparent to him that something must have happened as his cellphone started ringing off the hook with several media outlets and multiple staffers texting him directly.

Palmer is currently in the U.S. capital to attend a future of education conference where he is slated to speak on Wednesday. He was surrounded by other conference-goers when he declared victory.

In a chipper yet surprised mood, Palmer told ABC News: “It feels great.”

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
