Wonder if Biden is forgetting decisions he has made the day before. Is he forgetting conversations? Is he forgetting people? Has he been involved on the choice for VP? That could be hard if he doesn't remember the discussions. How can he make up his mind? That might explain why he hasn't named anyone yet.

Like others, we have had family members go through cognitive decline. It's not a straight-line descent. Some days they were OK. Other days they lost awareness and started to talk nonsense from time to time. At some point the good days are replaced by only good moments. The rest of the time they were not coherent at all. Anyone being honest can see that Biden has declined considerably since the primaries earlier this year. By inauguration day in January 2021 he could be completely off the deep end.

A very dear family friend developed dementia. At first, it was subtle, but over time, it become more obvious. He was a widower and he lived alone. First, he stopped bathing and developed an aroma. Then he got confused and lost when driving around town. Over time, he'd ask the same question over and over. No matter how many times we told him the answer, he'd ask the same question five minutes later. Several outings were ruined because he'd insist on leaving shortly after arriving. One of the most telling things about him was the confused look on his face most of the time. Joe Biden has that look when he's put up for an activity - laying a wreath, reading the teleprompter, trying to have a press conference.

My grandmother and mother both suffered from Alzheimer's. I am not saying Biden has Alzheimer's but he certainly has some sort of dementia. The way he walks, his shuffling gait, that look on his face that says "I don't know what is going on". I have visions of him in the basement watching old game shows and wondering when it will be snack time. He has no vitality and meanders off on tangents and stares into space trying to get his thoughts together. I've seen this play before up close and personal. There is something wrong with him.

We've been saying all along stuff like "this will be interesting", etc. But now it's obvious that any public appearance - much less presidential debates - would simply be cruel, and not the least bit amusing. By contrast, let's all remember how President Reagan courageously exited public life.

This is the main reason they are delaying the VP pick announcement, the other reason being there is no one qualified for either executive position on the short list.

Can you imagine if they selected hillary to replace biden? All satan's home would break loose. The "ladies" who ran in the primaries won't have her jumping to the front of the line. They can't even decide which of them should be VP. Forget the popular vote nonsense; hillary did not win anybody's popular vote, and she and the demons know it. That old beast has tried to keep her face out there, and it has done more harm than good. No one has moved over to her. In fact, democrats are walking away in droves, and she's part of the reason. Yes, it goes deeper than hillary, but you don't hear the walk aways saying they are doing so reluctantly because of their lingering support for hillary. That beast is done.

I hope that they have to pull him out of the race and I hope that they try to nominate someone other than Bernie. You think there is violence in the streets now? The Bernie thugs will quadruple it. And they will stay home on 11/3 or they will vote for PDT out of spite. As the holder of the second highest number of delegates Bernie should be the nominee.

If the Democrats “screw” Bernie a second time, the riots you have seen so far will be child’s play. If the Democrat select someone who did not participate in the caucuses and primaries about the same thing will happen.

"It’s going to become evident soon enough to everyone that they were taken for a ride and handed a candidate incapable of doing the job simply to get rid of Trump." As if 99% of dems won't think that's perfectly fine. So we have a drooling old man, better than Bad Orange Man, right? Why should the very people who corrupted law enforcement to arrange the whole Russia hoax, "resist", and a nearly four year tsunami of hate, balk at ballot-stuffing a poor old meat puppet into office? "Sure he's a mushroom, but WE WIN!"

Ride it out? How is that conceivably possible. Sure, the most fanatic dems would vote for a stump instead of Trump. But the rest of them want their vote to mean something. They got rid of Bernie because the Country will not elect a Communist. Sure the party actually is Communist but they pretend not to be. Bernie was proud of it. Even half of the dem party was not interested in a Communist nominee. Any other of the smurfs coming forward as the candidate would completely fracture the party. As Biden's mental collapse becomes even more obvious, a lot of the dem party will not support him. There will be no enthusiasm for the race. Donations will drop. There will be no rallies. A mental vegetable candidate is NOT going to be acceptable to youth, Blacks, Hispanics, or women. I'm not sure it's arrogance to try to keep going with Biden. I think it is desperation and hopelessness. The dems are at the end of their long, long rope and there is nothing they can do. Their jigsaw puzzle party is coming apart and they have become incompetent at everything because the media never holds them to account. After they lose this election, will there be a party anymore?

The Democrats really don't have a viable candidate. They can't select Bernie the Communist. They can't select Hillary with all of her baggage and her own bout of Parkinson's. The governor of New York and the mayor of New York City have both shot themselves in the foot. So who's left in the Democrat Party that has a chance in November? No one.

Biden is clearly at least stage 3 Alzheimers, has never been right about anything in 44+ years government "service" - besides having sold his office (Vin his son's name) in Ukraine and China. VP candidate Kamila Harris was thoroughly outed as an empty vessel by Tulsi Gabbard in the VP debates. Karen Bass is a life long Castro supporter who wants to bring back expelled alien felons at US taxpayer expense. Elizabeth Warren, aka Pocahontas, faked status as a native american to rip off taxpayers and has policy goals so nuts that she is a laughingstock. No known potential VP candidate is arguably sane by any rational standard and none is an actual Democrat, as opposed to Socialist/Marxist/Communist/Progressive. (distinctions without a meaningful difference) Now the best plan the Dems can come up is for Biden to refuse to debate and have mail-in ballots so that results will not be known before Inauguration day is past. Whether one likes Trump or hates him, they must either vote for him in 2020, or decide to give up on the American "experiment" - a Constitutional Republic that is by far the best system devised in recorded history.

Been predicting this for 2 years. Hillary kept the receipt when she sold her soul to the devil, and she is not accepting a refund. Her biggest problem right now is that Bill has been caught - again - lying about Epstein Island. Once Ghislaine has an unexpected suicide with the guards asleep and no cameras working, Hillary can ride the last horse of the apocalypse to the finish line.

It seems the Dems played this one wrong. The plan was to elect Joe with a black woman as VP and within months, he would be shuffled off to the nursing home and she would become the first black woman as president. It's doubtful Joe can make it to the election and certainly couldn't debate Trump. Kind of like the polls that were sure Shillary would be elected. Called it wrong twice. Because Trump supporters aren't suppose to speak up, doesn't mean they won't vote for him.

Given his two aneurysms and partial lobotomies, Biden should never have been allowed in congress much less as a presidential candidate. I think his current rapid decline probably goes back to those aneurysms. The left made a huge deal out of Cheney’s heart problems but 20 years later he is still around and doing well. Biden could wither away in a delusional cloud or he could drop dead at any second.

A British media company on Monday published segments of two leaked body-worn camera videos showing the arrest and death of George Floyd in May at the hands of Minneapolis police. The Daily Mail published an article on its website at 10:53 a.m. Central Time with the videos. It showed about 10 minutes of video from former officer Thomas Lane's bodycam and about 18 minutes from former officer J. Alexander Kueng's bodycam. The two former officers' bodycam videos were made available for public viewing inside the Hennepin County courthouse in mid-July, but were prohibited from being recorded or publicly distributed. It's unclear how the Daily Mail got the videos.

Mr. Trump has asked a judge to declare the subpoena invalid.

While a world without textbooks or homework and where getting the wrong answer is celebrated may sound like an elementary student’s fantasy, that becoming reality would damage a generation of young minds. However, that is exactly what is happening in public elementary schools. I recently spoke with a fourth grade teacher from the midwest, who shared her experiences of curriculum shifting from history and science and towards political indoctrination, to the detriment of students’ learning. For this person’s privacy, she will remain nameless. In supervising fourth grade, she teaches a little of everything: math, reading, language arts, social studies, and science. Recently her school district, like many others, switched to “integrated curriculum.”

Supreme Court sides with Trump on building

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court has allowed President Trump to defy Congress and continue to spend more than $6 billion diverted from military funds to pay for the construction of a border wall in parts of Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and California. By 5-4 vote, the justices on Friday rebuffed lawyers for the Sierra Club and House Democrats who sued to challenge Trump’s diversion of funds as illegal and unconstitutional. They won rulings before judges in California and Texas, but in a brief order last summer, the court allowed Trump to continue spending the disputed funds while the litigation continues.

In a filing submitted to U.S. District Court Judge Michael Simon, the Department of Justice asks Simon to consider overturning his previous temporary restraining order (TRO) issuing special protections for journalists, which, among other privileges, allowed journalists to remain in place even if the police force rioters back or attempt to disperse the crowds.

Explosive unsealed court documents related to the Jeffrey Epstein/Ghislaine Maxwell sex trafficking investigation have caused #BillClintonIsAPedo to trend on Twitter Sunday, making it the top item in the politics category on the social media network. Most media outlets have ignored the revelations, which would be massive headline news if a past or present Republican president was implicated in the allegations. Twitter users jumped on the Epstein-Clinton connection, however, particularly in the context of the media trying to bury the story because it reflects poorly on Clinton specifically and Democrats generally. Some Twitterville voices initially claimed the platform was trying to suppress or throttle the trend,

A 33-year-old Mexican man died in American custody on Saturday about a week after falling from the US-Mexico border wall, authorities said. The man was found injured in an open field near Yuma, Arizona by agents from the US Customs and Border Protection on July 26, the agency said. He told agents he had plunged from the wall. Emergency responders immediately rendered first aid before transporting him to Yuma Regional Medical Center.

Locking the country down “really hard” for a period of several weeks could save the economy from long-term pain, the president of the Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank said Sunday. In an interview with CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Neel Kashkari said that the only way to have “a real robust economic recovery” is to quash the flare-ups of the coronavirus that continue to pop up across the country. Shutting things down “for a month or six weeks” would allow the nation’s case count to get low enough that the government’s testing and contact tracing efforts could effectively contain future spreading, Kashkari said,

Those of us silly enough to get excited about this stuff suffered a major letdown this weekend when Joe Biden’s campaign announced that Biden would not announce his vice presidential running mate on Saturday, but would instead wait another week or longer. Originally set for August 1, the announcement now won’t come before August 10, according to the New York Post. Biden’s pick is going to be a woman unless Biden breaks his vow from last March, and she’s probably going a “woman of color.” Given the realities of the American political landscape, that’s a short list of potential running mates. Biden had apparently narrowed

U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield has confirmed that, despite claims otherwise from the left, there is indeed a “perverse incentive” for hospitals to overcount their coronavirus deaths by falsely attributing unrelated deaths to the virus. Asked during a House Oversight and Reform hearing Friday to comment on what Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer, a Republican, described as a “perverse incentive for medical folks to claim that somebody died of COVID versus an automobile accident, for instance,” Redfield admitted that the congressman had a point.

Democrats are contemplating secession and potential civil war as they game out possible scenarios for a closely contested election, according to a report by Ben Smith in a New York Times column Sunday.The bulk of Smith’s column is devoted to the question of how the media will handle Election Night coverage, given that the result may not be known for weeks. Vote-by-mail, which many states have only recently adopted — ostensibly, to prevent the spread of coronavirus in polling places — could lead to an uncertain result.However, buried near the end of Smith’s column is a report that Democrats have participated in a “war game”

While Americans across the country continue to work despite the many hardships of COVID-19, teachers’ unions want none of it. They want to keep schools closed, which will benefit their own members greatly but seriously harm school-age kids. The Twitter hashtag “edupocalypse” has seen some use in recent weeks and months as our nation’s schools closed down and all but stopped teaching. It’s leading to what we think can be called, without exaggeration, an educational crisis. Public schools may never be the same. You can blame it on the shameful display of self interest by a powerful, politically-connected lobby that

Vance Jr., made the disclosure in a new federal court filing arguing Mr. Trump’s accountants should have to comply with its subpoena seeking eight years of his personal and corporate tax returns. Mr. Trump has asked a judge to declare the subpoena invalid.
