Joe Biden drifts off into incoherence
in MSNBC softball interview,
as wife Jill tries hard
to look unconcerned

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 4/17/2020 9:45:49 AM

Do Democrats really believe that they can push to victory a presidential candidate who is incapable of one full minute of coherent discourse, even in a friendly environment? With more than half a year before Election Day, Joe Biden is rapidly mentally deteriorating, and it is increasingly sad watching him and his wife trying to cope with responsibilities that even in his salad days were beyond his capacity. (snip) Yesterday, his friends on MSNBC’s Morning Joe metaphorically threw him a softball and he fumbled it... then just giving up with a disturbing, off-kilter smiling face, as if he were about to play a third banjo in Deliverance.

I don't get the impression of dementia as much as the feeling I get when children are making up outlandish lies and stories. "What hospital did this happen at?" would have sent him into a slurry of stuttering while he tried to figure out what to answer least likely to be provable....

you people might want to google 'aphasia.' There are various forms of this condiution, and Old Jo, sadly, has one of them. his brain is deteriorating, and he is declining at an accelerating rate - on an asymptotic curve, for you math buffs. It is sad to see, and his slatternly wife looks like a bewildered chicken. Shame on her for not protecting him, as most other spouses would do in the same situation. And shame on his political party for not disqualifying him.

The DNC are well aware that he does not have a prayer. Their problem is how to replace him without handing the nomination to Sanders. Either way they’re screwed, exactly as they deserve to be.

His little story doesn't add up. If this imaged guy is in quarantine (on a 3rd floor, somewhere) then his two small children would not be knocking on the door. And what does Joe playing 'knock knock' with his own kids have anything to do with it?

I said this months ago: This man needs to be taken off the public circuit, but where are the people who care enough about him to do it? As for the DNC, they're probably in less of a pickle than we think they are. After all, if Hillary can win a coin toss SIX times in a row and they can pay off one candidate so that the "right" one "wins" (TWICE), then they'll think nothing of merely having the super delegates choose someone besides Gropin' Joe. Voters be damned!

How else can Burisma Joe deny knowing about the tens of thousands of absentee ballots from the same address? “Come on, man, I was totally unaware of why my campaign wanted cartons of ballots for each state.” The Democrats are planning on stealing the election for Biden and what’s really frightening is that we have to rely upon AG Barr and Director Wray to prevent it.

I don't think the democrats can keep Biden going for another six months. They are in a tough spot right now because Bernie is in the wings, with his ''suspended'' campaign, waiting to reemerge. If democrats try to substitute anyone else, they will have a real civil war on their hands. Their only hope is to keep Biden propped up, with a vain hope he could somehow win, and then elevate the VP as Biden retires.

With all respect, #6 is incorrect. Aphasia is a speech defect due to damage to that particular part of the brain due to injury or stroke. It has nothing to do with intellect, with deterioration of the brain. We have been working with aphasia for 11 years. It has nothing whatsoever to do with dementia.

I’ll amend #24. There is a condition called "primary progressive aphasia" that does have to do with brain deterioration. Could be something Joe is displaying, but I don’t think so. He is losing his memory. Tries to recall anecdotes to plug into his spiel and they just don’t work out. All talk in the past - and known for some pretty nasty talk - he is now muddled and operating from a very weak place. As for aphasia, that is caused by stroke or injury. That is what our family is dealing with. It has nothing to do with dementia.

The Dems have ignored real problems with Joe his entire career. He was enough of a glad-hander and willing to play whatever role they wanted, and that was good enough. He has always been fake (plagiarism), he has always been nasty mean, he has always been too touchy-feely with the girls (of all ages). He has always had trouble with coherent speech. But he was good old, go-along-to-get-along Joe. Now that dementia is accelerating and exacerbating his cognitive problems, it must really be starting to scare the Dems. They may be hoping for a heart attack, a stroke, sudden demise - to get them out of having to keep him on the ticket. And: They Cannot Say Anything About It. The same may be true for "Dr." Jill. I don't wish anyone ill, but I don't think we will need to bide our time too much longer before the Dem establishment cannot ignore this embarrassing and awful reality. Republicans have had their share of keeping their own totally infirm elders in place, propped up by aides. But this time it is the Presidency at stake, and someone needs to put on their big girl shoes and help Joe slide gracefully off the stage. Ramona (the Pest)

second post apologies, but, #24/25, let mw tell you a story. during my USAF medic days, I once was on independent duty at a clinic, on the night shift, at weisbaden air Base Germany. I was inadequately trained, but bright, and they turned me loose with a key to the pharmacy. And if someone came in with one medical problem, I did oK. But if the person had two medical problems, i usually missed the second problem. Why do I tell the story, you ask? because Old Jo Biden suffered two brain aneurysms in 1988,m requiring surgery. The surgery itself can cause tissue damage, which, in turn, can cause aphasia. Or OBD. In addition, he may have dementia on top of the aphasia. He seems to be losing filters on inappropriate actions. sniffing little girls and their moms, touching, fondling. and you add those problems to a man who has always been fundamentally dishonest, you have a mess.

It is sad to see Joe Biden in his declining mental state, but his reprehensible wife Jill allows him to continue this charade. Having cared for a mother with Alzheimer's for over ten years I know first hand the signs of mental decline in a person with Alzheimers. My mother was first diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and she exhibited symptoms like we are seeing now in Joe Biden. She became confused while speaking and struggled putting together a coherent sentence. Her temperament changed and she became easily agitated. The most heartbreaking sign is what I called the "thousand yard stare" where my mother had this lost look expression on her face. I totally agree with poster #1. "This isn't funny anymore. It's cruel".

Did I Already Have COVID-19? 22 replies
Posted by Magnante 4/30/2020 8:50:16 AM Post Reply
It is an increasingly common statement, in comments sections, in social media posts and from callers on talk radio programs, “I think I had COVID-19 back in [name your month].” This is an important phenomenon for public policy. If they believed the experts, if they trusted what their governments had told them, then would people make that statement? Governments around the world saw COVID-19 start in early March and shuttered their economies, claiming it necessary to stop its spread. To ponder if one had COVID-19 before March is to doubt that narrative, and that pondering is amplified by those who tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies.

Unsealed internal FBI documents reveal that top FBI officials conspired to set up General Michael Flynn to “get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired.” The fact that these documents only turned up now is just one part of the DOJ’s and FBI’s Russia hoax, an ongoing effort to stage a coup against the Trump administration. The DOJ’s and FBI’s malicious prosecution against Flynn consisted of withholding exculpatory information (including the material discussed here), threatening without cause to prosecute Flynn’s son to force Flynn to plead guilty, and blackmailing Flynn’s attorneys into working against him.

The news about Joe Biden has taken on a completely surreal quality. For a long time, the headlines were about his declining mental state, which is becoming hard to ignore.

The Standard for Reopening States is Rigged 17 replies
Posted by Magnante 4/27/2020 4:41:10 AM Post Reply
The new White House standard for reopening the economy in various states is rigged to severely prolong the economic strangulation under the current lockdowns. The criterion has been defined as a 14-day period of declining volume in new cases or a 14-day period of declining rates of positivity of those tested. Testing is ramping up in every state, which if the epidemiologists are right, will produce a lower percentage rate of positivity on the tests since the curve has been bent. But there is a new factor which throws all of these calculations off so far off that the 14-day standard should be abandoned. That factor is

Failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is what the kids these days call "thirsty AF." For weeks, Abrams has been all but begging former vice president Joe Biden to pick her as a running mate. Abrams's thirst for power appears to know no bounds.

Abrams, who has repeatedly declared herself the winner of Georgia's 2018 gubernatorial election despite receiving fewer votes than her Republican opponent, has been "privately calling Democratic powerbrokers, asking them to tell Biden campaign officials that she should be vice president."
