GOP lawmakers, led by ex-White House
doc, ask Biden to take cognitive test

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 6/17/2021 7:56:42 PM

More than a dozen Republican House members, led by former White House doctor Ronny Jackson, asked President Biden Thursday to undergo a cognitive test and release the results “so the American people know the full mental and intellectual health of their President.”“The American people should have absolute confidence in their President,” reads the letter to Biden in part. “They deserve to know that he or she can perform the duties of Head of State and Commander in Chief. They deserve full transparency on the mental capabilities of their highest elected leader.”

I assume the Ruskies have a video tape of Old Joe's meeting with Putin. And I assume it's devastating for Old Joe's mental well-being.

It's a good idea, but we already know he's senile. If the tests prove he's senile, what then? Jill gets to run things? Leftists don't budge when they're found out and are guilty as all get out. They don't suffer consequences, and you can't force them out of office. They only leave for the good of the elite.

Heels Up Harris is an insurance policy for 25th amendment removal and/or impeachment regardless of the degree of mental disfunction of the current resident of the White House. In this case, you own what you have stolen, so show the nation's top democrat off to everyone for four years.

Remember when the photo of kamala was re-released showing her in a slinky nightdress with Montel Williams back in 2001? I guessed that gave kamala proof that Biden's puppet masters also had enough on her to keep her under their thumb should she become POTUS. So, now that she's going to be easily controlled, they can safely dump Biden. And they better do it before Jill gets any uppitier about being Mrs Wilson of the 21th century.

#17 beat me to it. The Republicans should vote against any attempt at the 25th amendment. They should make sure that Xiden serves out his full term even if he is a drooling completely incoherent toddler by the end of it. We need to insure that he’s the face of the demonrat party and the albatross around their necks heading into the 2024 election. Yes, he will do great damage, but as we all know, Commie-la would do even worse.

Like the joke and threat of impeachment you go down this path it will be used for every Republican who is in office. It was started and mentioned with President Trump. A seed planted that Trump was crazy but Joe Biden now proves it's a necessity but won't happen. I would rather leave him where he sits and let it play out it's horrible to watch but the alternative is worse, Kamala Harris.

I was watching Newsmax this morning and the panel included a Rick Gates, former Trump campaign aide, who usually strikes me by his comments as being a bit more Democrat than Trumpian, but anyway. The host brought up this cognitive test request and Mr. Gates said it was a silly PR stunt and wouldn't matter. I was rather annoyed as for four years all we got from Dems/newsmedia was Trump is mentally unstable, 25th Amendment, etc when he clearly was and is not senile or anywhere close but Biden who is obviously in mental decline (not that he had great mental capacity in the first place) continues to get a pass. So sick of the double standard even by those supposedly on our side. Hooray for Rep. Jackson et al.

Georgia's secretary of state is poised to remove more than 100,000 "outdated" names from the state's voter registration rolls unless those on the list take immediate action.Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger released the full list of people who could be affected by the registration update on Friday."Making sure Georgia's voter rolls are up to date is key to ensuring the integrity of our elections," the Republican said in a statement. "There is no legitimate reason to keep ineligible voters on the rolls."Some critics, such as Gerald Griggs with the Atlanta NAACP, described the move as a voter purge. Griggs said thousands of voters were improperly removed from the 2019 list.

The New York Times headlined a recent article, "Biden's $6 trillion budget aims for path to middle class, financed by the rich." But is it possible to confer middle-class status on individuals just by giving them a handful of unearned money? Is it possible for someone to say, "I'm middle-class because I'm getting checks from the government"?Most thoughtful observers will recognize the absurdity of this notion, but it doesn't seem absurd to Biden or his progressive supporters — just as it didn't seem crazy, back in the 2000s, to gift a middle-class home to those who could not pay for it, or today that one can transform

Two questions lobbed at the FBI are both haunting and disheartening: “What did the FBI know?

The election of 2020 is going to lay bare the dereliction of the Supreme Court for all to see. The COVD-19 pandemic gave numerous state election officials an excuse to implement far-reaching changes to our election processes. Those changes obviously made our systems vulnerable to fraud. States implemented massive mail-in balloting at the same time they relaxed ballot security and voter identification. They even extended the voting periods -- to give the criminals more time to commit their fraud. All these changes were unconstitutional. (snip) The Supreme Court declined to get involved.

President Biden, Madame Harris and members of Congress: the American flag has been hijacked as code for a specific belief. God bless those believers, they can have it.

It proposes that when someone dies, any asset they leave behind that has appreciated in value by more than $1million since the time they bought it should be taxed.
