Joe Biden's Cognitive Degradation and Jill Biden's Intentional Neglect

 


My Aunt Faye passed away just a few short years ago.  Sadly, her mind preceded her passing about two decades prior to that.  My aunt was once a sharp lady and along with my uncle, who died decades before her of a heart attack, had built a nice life together.  They were very comfortable in their earnings.  It was a good thing they had financial resources, as my aunt, while physically healthy, suffered Alzheimer’s disease long before her passing.

At first, she became easily disoriented and was not sure where she was or where she was going.  In a few short years, her memory continued to fade to the point where conversations became difficult, and then degraded to the point where she no longer remembered the faces of family and friends.  The last five years of her life, she even lost her ability to talk.  It was a horribly difficult and sad thing for the family to witness.  The best the family could do was to take care of her and keep her comfortable and safe.

Sadly, there are myriads of families that have experienced similar difficult situations with cognitive impairment ravaging the mind of a loved one.  As family, we protect and love these family members while maintaining as great a sense of dignity as possible for them.

Which brings me to my point.  What in the world is Jill Biden doing?  What are the rest of the Biden family doing?  It has long been quietly surmised by anyone that has eyes, ears, and a scintilla of objectivity that Joe was slipping mentally.  He has always been a gaffe machine of the first order, but lately it has become painfully apparent that his mental state is significantly impaired.  He certainly doesn’t have the cognition to deal with the stresses and decisions required of the office of the President of the United States of America.  In fact, when a friendly reporter asked him recently if he had undergone a cognitive test to refute such accusations, Joe Biden retorted testily as to whether the reporter had had a drug test and further inquired as to whether he was a junkie.  C'Mon man!

As anyone paying attention to his campaign has noticed, Joe Biden forgets which state or city he is in repeatedly.  He loses track of stories and struggles to find the words to communicate simple thoughts.  He gets testy easily and even lashes out at supporters and the mainstream media, but then I repeat myself.  Putting all of his political history and issues aside, is this truly the man that is best fit to lead the free world?

According to the Democrats, the answer is a resounding “Yes!” 

Jill Biden’s first loyalty and responsibility should be towards her husband and his well-being, and not to the demands of the Democratic Party.  Joe continues to confusedly read speeches from teleprompters as if that is the only requirement needed to be fulfilled for the office of the presidency.  The Democrat Party has intentionally kept him in his basement avoiding most interviews and public appearances, under the guise of being “responsible” in this age of Covid-19.  The few softball interviews and short public appearances that Joe has attempted have only served to further raise questions as to whether Joe is a few sandwiches shy of a picnic.  And of course, Nancy Pelosi and other prominent party members are encouraging Joe not to debate President Trump.  They KNOW how horribly that would go.

If Joe Biden cannot make it through short, scripted public appearances with a friendly crowd, or conduct a softball interview with a sycophantic media personality, how is he going to make tough, timely decisions in stressful and hostile situations as he runs the greatest country in the history of humankind?  I don’t think Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, or Ayatollah Ali Khamenei are going to cut Uncle Joe any slack in their dealings with him.  On the contrary, I think Joe’s debilitated state will be greatly used to their advantage and against the interests of freedom, liberty, and the United States of America.

Certainly knowing all of this, Jill Biden should not have allowed Joe to run for president.  When it became glaringly obvious that he could not perform up to minimal standards on the campaign trail, she should have insisted to the DNC that Joe suspend his campaign.  She should have done this as his loving wife who wants to protect Joe and what little dignity he has remaining.

I can understand the cynical and jaded Democrat party wishing to keep Joe Biden on the top of the ticket as their best chance to capture the White House.  Considering the group of competitors running against him, I think a senile 47-year political career hack is indeed their best bet.

After all, if Aunt Faye were still alive, and a socialist, she too would be a better option for the Democratic nominee.

However, Jill Biden should know better and she should be deeply ashamed.

I've wondered about Jill also. She went with him to Wisconsin to cover for him with that family (who recently said they didn't want to make this political). Everything is protected for Biden and what is the goal from those behind him? To get Harris the presidency when she never could have won it? I blame Obama for a lot of this. So disappointed him who he turned out to be.

TB3 said...

I am truly sorry to hear about your Aunt Faye and her struggles.

I an also sorry to hear that you've been taken in on this "conservative" meme. It is a rather interesting deflection and distraction strategy to accuse one's opponent of the things they themselves have been accused of. I recommend you actually watch Joe Biden at live press conferences or giving speeches unfiltered through the lens of YouTube Superclip "proof of cognitive decline" videos. Some misspeaks and stutters and "conservatives" latch onto the 'JOE BIDEN IS DEMENTED AND SENILE' bandwagon. Honestly, anyone who watched the DNC Convention and listened to the man speak would reasonably come away from it knowing the Joe is Declining narrative is as fictional as our President's devotion to Law and Order.

I guess, though, that would mean I expect people of differing political persuasions to be reasonable. I'm very sorry that you've fallen in with such bad faith actors, Darrell.

Darrell Michaels said...

Rain, I think that is precisely what is going on with the "king makers" pulling the strings. Biden, if God forbid is elected, will not be able to serve out four years. He struggles to read a speech from a teleprompter as it is right now.

Harris has proven that she is willing to change her position or stance based on what is most advantageous to her and her career. Someone with such an un-tethered moral compass will be easy to manipulate and control by the powers that be on the left.

TB3, I appreciate your kind words regarding my aunt. It was a truly sad thing for her to have to live through.

Next, I have watched Joe Biden's rare speeches and public appearances, even on C-Span without the bias. I find it fascinating that you don't have any concern with Joe's fumbling for words, unable to complete his thoughts, or flat-out drifting off in space. I think this will become inargueably apparent during the presidential debates, assuming he doesn't come up with some other "reason" not to engage in the debates. We shall see, my friend!

(Thanks for posting my previous comment. It was rather snarky, and less fact-focused than it should have been. With your kind indulgence, I'd offer this instead.)

Thank you for your insight on a fellow Catholic.

I have to wonder. Would you apply your same standards and evaluation skills to Trump? It appears you view Trump as the more sane and honest Christian of the two.

Frank Luntz asked Trump whether he has ever asked God for forgiveness for his actions.

"I am not sure I have. I just go on and try to do a better job from there. I don't think so."

Indeed. Why should the Chosen One ask for any forgiveness?

Of course Biden is like all politicians, but his gaffes and inaccuracies pale in numbers compared to Trump’s lies. Maybe I’m mistaken and you have evidence to the contrary. As a rational progressive person, I would be compelled to take documented factual evidence into consideration. Only bullies would target his stuttering issues. (We know who they are.)

You could clarify a lot for us.

How about his grasp on reality? How about his anger, hate, and hostility towards dissent, like his assault on legal peaceful protesters to make a photo op with a Bible? Isn’t that a direct violation of their First Amendment rights under the-Constitution? I’ll answer that for you. Yes.

How about his rejection of the US Director of National Intelligence and Russian interference in the election? I remember him bending the knee to Putin in Helsinki and taking orders from Putin regarding their conversations. We'd love to know what they chatted about, but Don needs Putin's permission for that. I'm sure it was none of our business, like Trump Tower Moscow.

MOSCOW, Sept 30 2018 (Reuters) - The Kremlin said on Monday that Washington would need Russian consent to publish transcripts of phone calls between U.S. President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

"The Kremlin has said it would need to give permission for Donald Trump to release details of his one-on-one conversations with Vladimir Putin" - theguardian.com


Helsinki: July 16, 2018

“Dan Coats came to me and some others and said they think it’s Russia. I have President Putin. He just said it’s not Russia. I will say this. I don’t see any reason why it would be, but I really do want to see the server.”

“But her emails!” He deflects to the “server” numerous times for some reason.

Your particular power of prognostication could enlighten us to how Biden could top that betrayal of our country.

And how about his utter lack of shame? He doesn’t apologize and says he never asks God for forgiveness.

Is he as shameless as Jill Biden?

How about his honesty, decency, humility?

He either believes his thousands of lies ( Delusions are fixed beliefs that are not amenable to change in light of conflicting evidence. DSM-5), or he understands they are false and knowingly promotes them. (Therefore they are acts of sin and evil.)

This suggests he is either mentally ill or evil. Can you enlighten us how neither could be the case?

And finally, we know Trump is a criminal. He admitted to sex crimes. He has scorned our First Amendment, violently violating rights of protesters in front of a church, and demonizing the free press. He is “Individual 1” in a criminal investigation.

A filing by Manhattan federal prosecutors notes, “Individual-1” (the president) directed Cohen to make payments to two women to conceal his sexual relationship with them. Cohen admitted that this conduct was a crime.

There are at least 10 cases of likely obstruction of justice revealed in the Mueller investigation as well.

And didn't our "law and order president" break the law by soliciting election interference from a foreign leader in Ukraine? (52 U.S. Code § 30121. It shall be unlawful— to solicit- from a foreign national--money or other thing of value-- in connection with a Federal election.)

You are in the unique position to enlighten us on how the “law and order” president is above the law.

I understand why you would evade these questions. You have certainly avoided discussion of his racism and dishonesty, and the fact his old pal Roger Stone flashed the white power hand sign with Proud Boys. I would imagine you’d prefer to ignore Mike Flynn swearing an oath to QAnon as well. Birds of a feather...

On second thought, I withdraw my request for your evaluation.

You could instead substitute your evaluation with mine, while correcting any of my inaccuracies as needed.

I understand your reluctance to discuss them. They must be very uncomfortable for you, and to your conservative ideology.

I get it.

It also explains why conservatives need a double standard to justify their beliefs and choices.

Darrell Michaels said...

First, I thank you for your condolences, Dave. Truly.

Next, I guess I am in the mood for futile gestures at written conversation as I delve into your comment. Anyway, here we go to absolutely no avail.

First, I am not talking about stuttering. Yes, I understand that Biden used to have a problem with stuttering that he worked hard to overcome. If you watch the video provided and myriads more available over the last few years, you can easily see this is NOT about stuttering. This is about him losing his train of thought repeatedly, mangling common phrases ad nauseum, getting inexplicably angry (even with supporters) over perceived slights. Ask the “junkie” friendly journalist or the “lying dog face pony soldier” at his rally.

Of course you ignore these signs of dementia or early onset Alzheimer’s and deflect to Trump. I acknowledge that Trump is often bombastic and simplistic in his speech, but you can at least follow his train of thought. And if you have had experience working in a psychiatric facility for twenty-five years and still cannot see the inarguably obvious signs of Joe Biden’s cognitive degradation, then you are being willfully ignorant, my friend.

Next, although we are off course here, Trump did not obstruct the Russian investigation. Not even the sainted Mueller could find actionable evidence of this. The only one that colluded with the Russians in the campaign was Hillary with her Steele Dossier.

Next, as President, Trump is obligated to faithfully execute the laws of the United States, so his asking the Ukrainian president to look into the VIDEOTAPED EVIDENCE of Joe Biden threatening to hold back U.S. aid to Ukraine unless they fired the investigator looking into the corrupt Ukrainian gas company that his unqualified druggy son was a board member of seems to be his obligation and responsibility. And after Joe Biden’s threat, “You know what, the son of a bitch was fired.” THAT is the real crime that you ignore while going after Trump for asking the Ukrainians to investigate that crime.

And Biden’s “lifelong” Catholicism which he routinely ignores major tenets thereof are something that he will have to answer to God for one day. His egregious violations of the faith are such that there are multiple priests and Bishops that have denied him partaking in the Eucharist. You have knowledge of Catholicism yourself, so you should have an idea of the seriousness of that for people that truly considers themselves as faithful Catholic Christians.

Yep, Trump had rioters that were throwing rocks and bottles removed away from a church so that he could stand there with a bible. That created more hate and discontent amongst the left than the fact that likely some of these same “peaceful protesters” tried to burn that same church down in the days preceding this.

Darrell Michaels said...

As for Obama’s job numbers, yes he had eight years of sub 2% growth due to his policies which did return millions to the work force after spending more money than all of the previous presidents in history combined. When the unemployment rate was so poor, filling the bucket back up was inevitable, even though some of the poorest communities in need were neglected by Obama. Indeed, Obama marked success, like all leftists do, based on how many more people were on government assistance instead of how many people no longer needed that assistance. Trump, for all of his many failings has come along and improved the financial situations for Hispanic Americans, black Americans and other minorities with historic low unemployment, highs in work force participation, and in home ownership. Those are REAL achievements that benefit Americans.

Now, aside from this grand deflection of the main issue at hand of Joe Biden’s cognitive degradation and trying to create a mainly false laundry list of Trump’s transgressions, I would suggest that you try to remove your leftist lenses and really look at any speech or public gathering for Joe Biden, particularly when he is off teleprompter, and see if your decades of experience doesn’t suggest to you that poor Joe Biden is suffering from some mental incapacity. If you still fail to acknowledge that, then your ignorance travels past willful and approaches invincibility in its magnitude.

Dave Dubya said...

Thank you for your response..

I admire the amount of leeway and tolerance you have for the Man of 20,000 Lies. Biden is a horrible Christian and Catholic because he doesn’t actively try to force women to bear a rapist’s child. He respects the law, and difference between church and state. Does forcing women to bear a rapist’s child make Trump the better Christian?

Did you know on October 10, 1936 Heinrich Himmler created the Reich Central Office for Combating Homosexuality and Abortion, or Special Office (II S), a sub-department of Executive Department II of the Gestapo?

Would this make those guys better Christians than Democrats?

”I acknowledge that Trump is often bombastic and simplistic in his speech”

I expect this concludes your examination of our president’s character, words and behavior. Everything else is just rosy?

I have to note your opinions of “REAL achievements” must dismiss the better employment numbers under Obama.

8.1 million jobs were created in the last three years of the Obama administration. 6.6 million jobs were created in the first three years of Trump. Under Obama the black unemployment rate dropped 8.9%. Trump crows about a 3.4% drop

Why is it ONLY Trump is credited for improved economic conditions and jobs? The Black guy falls short of the Only One again. Just not in the numbers of jobs. I swear that looks like bias.

It is abundantly obvious you have never read the Mueller Report. I suppose Conservatives require only the deceptive summary of Trump’s toady William Barr, the man who auditioned for head of the DOJ by attacking Mueller’s investigation.

Allow me to share:

“[A] traditional prosecution or declination decision entails a binary determination to initiate or decline a prosecution, but we determined not to make a traditional prosecutorial judgment. The Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) has issued an opinion finding that ‘the indictment or criminal prosecution of a sitting President would impermissibly undermine the capacity of the executive branch to perform its constitutionally assigned functions in violation of “the constitutional separation of powers... If we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state.


(Pg. 158, Pt. II):
The President launched public attacks on the investigation and individuals involved in it who could possess evidence adverse to the President, while in private, the President engaged in a series of targeted efforts to control the investigation.

Dave Dubya said...

(Continue Pg. 158, Pt. II):

For instance, the President attempted to remove the Special Counsel; he sought to have Attorney General Sessions unrecuse himself and limit the investigation; he sought to prevent public disclosure of information about the June 9, 2016 meeting between Russians and campaign officials; and he used public forums to attack potential witnesses who might offer adverse information and to praise witnesses who declined to cooperate with the government. Judgments about the nature of the President's motives during each phase would be informed by the totality of the evidence.

If justice was applied, and an impartial court judged those “targeted efforts to control the investigation” Trump could be convicted of obstruction of justice.

“Trump is obligated to faithfully execute the laws of the United States”.

Yeah, and Ukraine isn’t the US.

“Hunter Biden did not violate any Ukrainian laws — at least as of now, we do not see any wrongdoing,” Yuriy Lutsenko, Ukraine’s then-prosecutor general, told Bloomberg News.

There is no evidence of Biden’s “crime” in Ukraine. It is a lie, brother. Biden’s threat to withhold U.S. assistance was based on US policy. Ukrainian public support, and open international consensus. This is not a crime in any world, only in the Cult Bubble of the Right.

You would know this if you cared to peek out of that bubble for a moment at factcheck.org.

The real crime was committed by Trump. (52 U.S. Code § 30121. It shall be unlawful— to solicit- from a foreign national--money or other thing of value-- in connection with a Federal election.)

This disturbing trend of the Right to project, lie and criminalize opposition is right out of the NAZI playbook.

...these same “peaceful protesters” tried to burn that same church’

No. You don’t know who set that fire, yet blame those who got gassed and clubbed the next day.

The daytime protesters were not rioting. In fact when one idiot threw a water bottle, others called on everyone to not do that. Some “riot”. You really do your best to paint every anti-police protester as a criminal. It was those cops that committed the physical assaults on people. One news cameraman from New Zealand was slammed with a shield.

As the press and Democrats have been saying all along: Most protests were peaceful.

“About 93% of racial justice protests in the US have been peaceful, a new report finds”

Police violence on non-threatening human beings protesting police violence is fascism.

Isn’t demonizing all the protesters characteristic of that same authoritarianism?

Dave Dubya said...

You've joined the Trump cult, my friend.

Your moral relativism and hypocrisy are now full MAGA.

Darrell Michaels said...

I have precious little time to address the nonsense, but here goes.

Unlike Trump, Biden has professed to being a Catholic. That means he is supposed to follow Christ's teachings as informed by the Church Christ founded.

And don't give me the BS that Biden only supports abortion when it comes to rape. He has supported abortion upto the point of birth. This is not a gray area for faithful Catholics.

As for Trump, I don't excuse his lapses in moral judgement either; however, he has also not professed to follow any such denominational set of standards of which I am aware. And you can quit with your NAZI comparisons. Killing babies that are "accidentally born alive" during an abortion procedure would seem to place far more Democrats, including Biden on the ghoulish Nazi side of the house if we were to honestly look at that analogy.

Biased fact check organizations aside, I think you would be screaming from the rafters (and rightfully so) if it were Trump telling the Ukrainians that they would not be getting their billion dollars in aid if they continued to investigate the corrupt Burisma gas company if Don Jr. were on the board making $50K a month. After all, you get upset at a throw-away line from Trump when he says, "Russia, if you are listening..." as being a serious statement of corruption.

Darrell Michaels said...

More of Mr. Dubya’s angry rant, some of which is just more name-calling which I won’t bother to allow on the comments page. That said, I will address excerpts, including this delusion from Biden:

"My religion defines who I am. And I've been a practicing Catholic my whole life. And it has particularly informed my social doctrine. Catholic social doctrine talks about taking care of those who can't take care of themselves, people who need help. With regard to abortion, I accept my church's position that life begins at conception. That's the church's judgment. I accept it in my personal life. But I refuse to impose it on equally devout Christians and Muslims and Jews and--I just refuse to impose that on others, unlike my friend here, the congressman. I do not believe that we have a right to tell other people that women can't control their body. It's a decision between them and their doctor, in my view. And the Supreme Court--I'm not going to interfere with that."

As I said, Biden’s following of Catholicism’s dictates is so poor that many priests and bishops refuse to allow him to partake of the Eucharist until he repents, goes to confession, and quits with his EVIL ways. The thing that he, and evidently most pro-abortion advocates fail to acknowledge is that the growing unborn child within a woman’s body is NOT a part of the woman’s body to do with as she chooses, from a moral perspective. That unborn child is a separate and unique life, regardless of the conditions of his or her conception. Further, his disclaimer is disingenuous too. “I believe it but I won’t impose it on others” is a sad defense. It is akin to saying, “I believe that stealing, murder, and arson are wrong personally, but I don’t want to impose that on others that may not believe the same as I do.”

“No wonder you need to regurgitate cult lies about Dems wanting to kill babies. It is a repugnant lie, equal to Nazi-style demonization.” ~ Dubya

The problem is that the House has refused scores of times to even take up debate, let alone vote, on the born alive protection act to prevent the killing of children “accidently” born alive during abortion procedures. Evidently the Democrats think it is unnecessary legislation and don’t want their votes tallied on it, so Pelosi doesn’t even allow it to come up for debate. In this case, these pro-abortion Democrats are complicit in actually killing babies.
Further, it is interesting how Biden’s social justice stance always involves the government providing for the downtrodden instead of working with private organizations, churches, and other such groups that are better suited and more efficient in helping the needs of these people. It has become a de facto tenet of the left that if government takes care of everybody, then that alleviates that obligation from each of them.

Darrell Michaels said...

“The Republican Party is killing American democracy, suppressing minority voter rights, sabotaging the Post Office, corrupting justice, and abetting racism. They are not patriots.” ~ Dubya

Lies. All of it. The Republicans are killing democracy? How? By insisting that we don’t disenfranchise voters with easily manipulated and fraudulent mail-in ballots? By insisting that everyone that votes prove that they are who they present themselves to be with identification? The only reason the democrats are against this is because it is easier to steal elections otherwise. If they thought they could win an honest election with a majority of the votes, they wouldn’t be trying so hard to hedge their bets.

And it is interesting how many Americans of color, including black Americans, are supporting the GOP and Trump now because of the positive changes they have made for them. Seems to fly in the face of the identity politics charge of “racism”. Oh, and quit you whining about the post office. It has been a disaster for decades. Trump is trying to get someone in there to actually fix it instead of simply throwing billions of dollars more at the problem like the Democrats want.

“They don't give a damn about anybody but their rich cronies. You haven't figured that out yet because you'd prefer to vent anger at those of us who point that fact out. That is a cult thing. Any foreign leader who said this about protesters would be rightfully declared a tyrant: ‘They are not ‘peaceful protesters’, as Sleepy Joe and the Democrats call them, they are THUGS’ Dennis Prager said Black Lives Matter is ‘the most racist organization in the country outside of the Ku Klux Klan’. These are the voices of racism and fascism, not freedom. Those voices are yours now.” ~ Dubya

The hypocrisy is startling. It is the rich Democrats that came into office with modest means and decades later leave as millionaires such as Hillary, Biden, Bernie etc. etc. etc. that are always looking out for their friends and families to help them get rich off of the government too. Hunter Biden is a great example of this with your discounting the fact that this unqualified charlatan making $50k a month from a Ukrainian gas company simply because his dad is the VP.
Last, Mr. Prager is right. The BLM organization and all of those pajama boys and girls that have been indoctrinated by the left are the true racists. We are told that being “color blind” is racist now. We have to be “anti-racist” and denounce our white privilege. If one is white, he is a racist by default, according to BLM. This is the very definition of racism before the left changed the meaning, as they typically do.

And with many of our cities on fire and being looted and ransacked nightly, it kind of proves the lie of “peaceful demonstrators”. But who should I believe? Dave or my lying eyes?

Darrell Michaels said...

“You just called me a liar. The least you could do is show facts to support your accusation. Authoritarians never do, of course.” ~ Dubya

Dave, I explained that requiring voter ID, and rejecting mail-in voting is not voter suppression or racism, or any such thing. It is a means to ensure that only legal voters are actually doing so. It PREVENTS disenfranchisement by not allowing votes to be diluted through falsified or ineligible voters. The Democrats want to be able to manipulate the voting by cheating once again though. Vote early, vote often is a long stated mantra of the Chicago Democrat crowd. We can go to stores but we cannot go to vote? BS! It is all a scam to make sure a senile lying government hack that has been in government for nearly five decades is elected.

Further, they are fixing the post office, and none of the needed changes will take effect until after the election. So quit with that lie too. Further, only by changing the definition of racism to mean that anyone that doesn’t support the organization of BLM is a racist can you make such an asinine claim. Just ask all of the black Americans that are leaving in droves from the Democrat party. They have seen justice reform, record employment, and record home ownership under Trump. It is eroding the racist Biden’s black base. So much for his monolithic black base that he has taken for granted.

Joe Biden is a pathological liar. He has lied, plagiarized, and cheated his whole life. Yes, Trump lies… a lot, but frankly despite your inflated leftist claim of 2 quadrillion documented lies by Trump, they are just that: inflated propaganda. The difference is that Trump has real tangible results in four years in office that Biden can’t touch after 47 years.

But what do I know? According to you I am in line with the Klan, neo-Nazis, and Proud Boys. I denounce everything that they all stand for, but that doesn’t matter to you. I support black lives and want to eradicate racism, but I don’t support the Marxist BLM, so I am a racist to you.

The problem with you, Dave, is that you don’t really want to discuss anything. You simply want to argue and bomb-throw just like the rest of the fascist Antifa idiots that you think are peacefully protesting as they block roads, burn buildings, assault police, yell at diners, and loot.

Darrell Michaels said...

Are there some cops using excessive force or acting illegally? Yep, undoubtedly. That said, on the whole they have shown a whole lot more patience than I would. I’d bring out the feds and shut down the Portland riots immediately instead of letting those bastards try to barricade cops in their buildings as they attempt to light them on fire. Peaceful my ass.

Go ahead and post your cancel culture lies on your blog. It is only fellow political travelers that will see it. Most of them are not open to reason anyway, by definition. If all you want to do is post screeds like the last one that is full of hate, venom, and lies, then just go elsewhere. I don’t want to entertain you anymore. Go tick off others because they are not as “woke” and leftist as you are.

“And with many of our cities on fire and being looted and ransacked nightly, it kind of proves the lie of ‘peaceful demonstrators’”

“Wrong again. This is what happens when FOX(R) shows months old footage every day. Duped people think it is happening every day in every "Democrat-run city". How easy it is to ignore the FACT that Trump-supporting cops who kill are the ONLY REASON this is happening.” ~ Dubya

Dave, this crap has been going on nightly for over 100 days in Portland, as well as in Chicago and other cities. You need to watch something other than Politburo-approved sources. You quote the hyper-partisan and leftist-owned Atlantic, or NPR, or Time to make your points and it just proves the fact that your “journalists” are all op-ed leftist hacks. There is no objectivity or journalism there. You simply read, nod your head, and feel smug in your confirmation bias related to you by fellow socialists.

Yes, my time is precious and limited. I don’t want to waste anymore of it on your tantrums. Go stamp your foot and whine elsewhere if this is all you are going to do.

Darrell Michaels said...

From Dave Dubya's latest tantrum that is not fit to print in totality:

"You can't even admit these protests wouldn't be happening if not for police brutality." ~ Dubya

You are right, for once. I cannot admit that because that is simply not true. These leftists were looking for an excuse to RIOT. George Floyd's horrific death gave them that excuse. There was not a single decent person in this country that was not disgusted by that "officer's" deliberate actions against Floyd. America was already in agreement with the protesters on this issue, but BLM, antifa, and other anarchists decided to riot, burn it all down, and loot. They weren't concerned about protecting black lives. They have greatly harmed far more black neighborhoods, businesses, and people with their mayhem and lawlessness then they have ever "saved".

Cops killed nearly twice as many whites as blacks in 2015. According to data compiled by The Washington Post, 50 percent of the victims of fatal police shootings were white, while 26 percent were black. The majority of these victims had a gun or “were armed or otherwise threatening the officer with potentially lethal force.”

More whites and Hispanics die from police homicides than blacks. 12 percent of white and Hispanic homicide deaths were due to police officers, while only four percent of black homicide deaths were the result of police officers.

Black and Hispanic police officers are more likely to fire a gun at blacks than white officers. This is according to a Department of Justice report in 2015 about the Philadelphia Police Department, and is further confirmed that by a study conducted by the University of Pennsylvania criminologist Greg Ridgeway in 2015 that determined black cops were 3.3 times more likely to fire a gun than other cops at a crime scene.

Blacks are more likely to kill cops than be killed by cops. This is according to FBI data, which also found that 40 percent of cop killers are black. The police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black than a cop killing an unarmed black person.

Any abuse of police authority, especially when lethal force is used on anyone should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. That said, your false narrative is just that: false. These rioting thugs have long been looking for an excuse to riot. George Floyd simply provided them one.

Darrell Michaels said...

“You can't show this level of social unrest was happening without incidents of police brutality that ignite them.” ~ Dubya

Actually… I can point to a couple of examples just off the top of my head. First, there have occasionally been riots in certain cities when their sports teams win championships. Sadly this is not an unusual phenomena. Second, when the “gentle giant” thug Michael Brown tried to take the gun away from an officer in Missouri, got himself shot, and thus provoked the unrighteous anger of the BLM movement to destroy Ferguson, Missouri also comes to mind. The antifa-fascists have long been looking for an excuse to riot. The BLM organization has always been a provocative part of it from their inception.

“I believe in the rule of law when justice is served. I have joined you in condemning the vandalism and violence. EVIDENCE shows guilt is on both sides, even cops. You blame democrats and protesters, instead of racist unqualified cops and Militia nuts killing and vandalizing. Your condemnation of police brutality pales compared to your hate for the protesters.” ~ Dubya

You have also claimed the violence is not done by the saintly antifa crowd or the pure BLM participants. It is always the fault of racist and abusive cops. I don’t excuse the illegal actions on either side and think any violator of the laws should be held accountable. Further, just look at the protests that will surely take place once again tonight in Portland. There are hundreds of thugs and criminals that have done everything from barricading cops in their stations and then attempting to burn it down. The cops have shown great restraint. I’d go in with huge numbers and throw every last one of the bastards into prison for at least a decade or two on attempted murder charges. And yes, Chauvin should also be in a cell right next to them.

“I linked to a study showing most protests were peaceful.” ~ Dubya

Yeah, America has seen the “mostly peaceful protests” with that fires in the background and the store fronts smashed and looted. But you are right. I should believe you rather than my lying eyes.

And just to go on the record YET AGAIN, I don’t support anyone that is a racist or a member of a racist group, regardless of whether it is the Klan, Neo-Nazis, skin-heads, proud boys or what have you. You, however, do support the Marxist and often racist BLM organization. I guess your racism is okay because it is politically correct and approved, right?

I guess I should research QAnon too, since I am accused of being a supporter by default. I really don’t know hardly anything about them. If they are bad people, then I will agree with you, but then you think certain honest and good people like Prager are also racists, so your vision is obviously not to be trusted.

“Sadly the US has its share of authoritarian terrorists who kill out of bigotry and extremism.” ~ Dubya

Yep, including a lot of anarchists, antifa-pajama boys, and BLM organization types. I give you the two officers shot for no reason in L.A. this weekend by such a terroristic ass.

“Authoritarians denied a fair impeachment trial with witnesses and evidence, to acquit Trump. Only Romney showed a conscience and respect for the Constitution. Authoritarians call the press the “enemy of the people”. Authoritarians condone pardoning war criminals and racists.” ~ Dubya

Damn you’re batting average is horrific. The House had the obligation and duty to call witnesses and subpoena evidence in the drafting of their politically motivated articles of impeachment. Instead they had grandstanding academics and leftist hacks pontificate on the evils of the orange man without ever providing any real evidence. Romney has proven what a fool he is to be duped by it and I hope he will face a primary challenge when his term comes up. And the leftist press that only finds evil on the right and in Republican camps are not the peoples’ champions. They do them a huge disservice by not providing objective and unvarnished facts. They are all editorialists and very seldom report on stories that are damaging to leftist causes. So yes, for the vast majority of the journalists that fall into that category, they are enemies of freedom, democracy, and the people.

“…authoritarian Republican state legislators have imposed numerous impediments to discourage voting.” ~ Dubya

Yeah, making people prove that they are eligible voters with ID that 99% of Americans have is a horrible thing. But you really don’t care about facts. You want illegals and felons to vote, since they will expand the leftist big-government Democrats power. That is the real truth. It is the reason why they refuse to simply ask for absentee ballots, if concerned about Covid, but rather insist that easily manipulated and falsified ballots get mailed out to everyone. You cannot win an honest election so you hope to manipulate it to cheat. THAT is the leftist legacy.

There was recently an “anonymous” activist that was interviewed that explained how he has long been helping leftists in New Jersey and New York cheat in elections. But you keep spouting your nonsense that it is “negligible”. Go to the Heritage Foundation site and review the thousands of cases of voter fraud that have been caught and prosecuted in recent times. One wonders how much more has never been caught. This is especially heinous when you have criminals like Hillary telling senile Joe he should not concede the election under any circumstances. But the left claims it is Trump that will refuse to leave the White House.

“If you are more outraged by property damage than police brutality, you might be a racist, and most certainly are an authoritarian.” ~ Dubya

What property damage, Dave? I thought the protests were peaceful! Or was that just the Proud Boys and the cops creating all of the damage? You think property damage is acceptable as a form of domestic terrorism in order for peaceful protesters to enact justice and eliminate police brutality. As if that tactic would actually work. They are the ones pushing us closer to an actual civil war.

I am outraged by lawless activity regardless if it is done by a cop or a “protester”. I am disgusted at the evil individual that shot the two LA deputies this weekend and then the “peaceful” protesters blocked the emergency room entrances of the hospital. Some were shouting that they hoped the officers died. THESE are ghouls and deserving of nothing but disgust and a dry prison cell.

Trump is not my ideal candidate. He has made some mistakes, told lies, and made a few horrible policy decisions. The sad thing is that he is orders of magnitude better than the alternative of the senile, corrupt, and 47 year career political hack that has been on the wrong side of history in so many major decisions he has made, INCLUDING on race.

It is ironic that the man that has done more to help Americans of color is decried as the racist, while Biden who didn’t want desegregation of his kids’ schools to create a “jungle” and has patronized people of color for decades is the left’s champion.
There is no one so blind as he who refuses to see.

If Biden wins, I wonder if he will establish a Ministry of Truth? If so, you could be his Secretary of Truth, assuming Hillary doesn't want he job.

Don’t bother to reply with more of your lies, accusations, and name calling. I don’t want to even have to waste time to hit the spam button on it.

Darrell,

In living through the awful decline of your Aunt Faye's battle with Alzheimer’s, did she exhibit something called SunDowning? Alzheimer's took my WWII vet father 9 years ago. I wondered then why visiting him in the late afternoon was at best a difficult experienced, until Sundadowning was explained to me. I then modified the times of my visits.

I've noticed that the rare public exposures by Joe are rarely in the afternoon or later. I've also noticed that the later in the day that he has a public meeting the less sure or stable he is. If Joe is suffering from Alzheimer's then he is being abused by his wife and the DNC if they continue to roll him out for all of us to watch him suffer the ravages of this terrible affliction.

How long will Joe's family allow the DNC to commit what I believe is the elder abuse of a sick man? Joe deserves better, Democrats deserves better, America deserves better.

Darrell Michaels said...

JTF, first welcome back, my friend! Second, and more importantly, my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your father after such a difficult battle. My heart goes out to you and yours and I pray for his peace with our Lord now.

As for Biden and the sundowning effect, that is a very interesting observation. I think there may indeed be something to that. It will be interesting to see what happens at the debates, assuming he actually shows up to do them.

Darrell,

I don't know if you have seen this. From powerlineblog.com

Time for the Democrats to Pull the Plug on Joe Biden?

Here is the latest from Joe Biden: he misread his teleprompter, and pronounced that by the time his speech was over, 200 million Americans–two-thirds of our population!–will have died from COVID-19, and it is all President Trump’s fault:

If you need more proof that Joe Biden is a teleprompter puppet, here it is.

"It’s estimated that 200 million people will die, probably by the time I finish this talk."

He just said 2/3 of the US will die by the time he’s done talking & blamed Trump. pic.twitter.com/t1sl3vSF58

Joe Biden has never been an intelligent person, but there was a time when his brain would have sounded an alarm if he was about to say that 2/3 of the U.S. population was about to perish. But those days are gone. Biden is a pathetic shell of a man, and for the Democrats to continue propping him up as a presidential candidate is elder abuse.

Because of the crazy environment in which we live, there is a chance that Biden might be elected president. But he will never serve as president. He can’t. He is senile, suffering from advanced dementia. If the Democrats care, they aren’t showing it.
