It’s Not Critical Whether Joe is the Democrat Nominee

 

Something vastly more important is at stake. When America’s president, whose job it is to keep America safe, and when necessary, keep many of her (pronoun alert) allies safe around the world, it should be a given that the president himself (or herself or theyself) is not a national security threat.

In a national security crisis on the homeland or an attack on an ally somewhere in the world, the Commander-in-Chief must make quick and hopefully coherent decisions based on a body of knowledge of foreign policy or military or domestic intelligence. He/she/they/zir…(I’m getting exhausted) must also be able to quickly comprehend and weigh the benefits or flaws of sometimes contradictory advice given by advisers and experts on how to deal with the crisis. Events can occur at any time of the day or night. Even after the Commander-in-Chief’s beddy-bye-time.

Joe Biden, who when he was vice-president, sitting in the White House Situation Room, counseled against Seal Team Six taking out Osama bin Laden when they had already been deployed to Pakistan while all the other cabinet members and advisors recommended that Obama take out Osama. Biden was characterized by former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates as being wrong on virtually every foreign policy decision that had to be made in the last 40 years. The horrific American military withdrawal from Afghanistan that Joe Biden, in his profound wisdom, wanted to coincide with the Islamist celebration of the September 11th attack on America is a prime example of his blithering idiocy, and as Trump rightly pointed out during Thursday’s debate, clearly emboldened Putin to move Russian troops into Ukraine in his thus far unsuccessful attempt at total annexation.

What Biden demonstrated during the presidential debate Thursday evening – well after his normal beddy-bye-time – is that despite a week-long preparation at Camp David, where CNN’s Erin Burnett may have revealed that he and his debate prep team were given the debate questions in advance, that the Commander-in-Chief had very noticeable cognitive impairment and several times meandered in his mind or found it difficult to formulate a coherent response; in one case, after noticeably struggling with his thoughts, proudly claimed that “Look, we finally beat Medicare.” Was Joe’s cognitive decline evident even before he was proclaimed president? If only alarm bells had rung out back in 2020…hmmm…

Those living in Taiwan and the Philippines, who happened to catch Thursday’s presidential debate, may be having very restless nights. One can only hope that China’s President Xi, the PLA and Chinese Naval commanders are even more incompetent than our own woke/DEI-adhering military brass and America’s Commander-in-Chief. But if provocative moves are made and America’s naval commanders and other military personnel in the Pacific theater aren’t busy getting LGBTQ+ rainbow-painted fingernails, pray that they receive coherent instructions from someone other than Joe Biden or Dr. Jill or even Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, who may or may not be able to be located.

Whether the dishonest Democrat Party and their media minions settle on a mechanism to remove Joe Biden as their presidential nominee or not (even if they have to strap Jill Biden into a Hannibal Lecter restraining device to do so) is less critical to the fate of the republic than whether Joe Biden should continue to be Commander-in-Chief until the inauguration of the new president. The other clear and present danger, of course, is that allowing Kamala Harris to become interim-POTUS, doesn’t resolve this national security threat and may, in fact, only compound it. Such is our current national security conundrum and Joe Biden’s insurance policy to prevent his removal from office.

In the meantime, several Middle Eastern and ISIS terrorists are somewhere at large in the United States, tens of thousands of military-aged and potential Chinese saboteurs have poured over the southern border near San Diego and CCP-funded and -controlled corporate entities have purchased vast acres of land near American military bases – just little tidbits of information that were conveniently left out by the moderators of Thursday’s debate including any mention of the millions of dollars from Chinese Communist Party-controlled companies that have poured into the numerous bank accounts of the Biden family.

There, I feel better now. Sleep well.

    You are very unfortunately correct. The way things are right now. Either Joe Biden or Kamala Harris will be our POTUS for Six more months. We have a bigger problem than Houston!

    Brian Watt: Democrat Party and their media minions settle on a mechanism to remove Joe Biden as their presidential nominee

    Nothing says “Defenders of Democracy” more than handful of insiders removing the popularly elected nominee of the party.   As Tucker Carlson recently said, “you keep using that word ‘Democracy’.  I do not think it means what you think it means.”

    There’s no question that Joe Biden is mentally unfit for office, whatever one thinks of his opinions.  This has been obvious to most of us for a while.  The media aside, what bugs me is how suddenly so many of my Biden supporting friends seem to have just waken up to the fact.

    I don’t know the news sources for your friends, but an acquaintance of mine said that Paul Krugman is his “guru” for economic issues and David Brooks serves that role for social and moral issues. He also gets news from NPR/PBS and considers himself well-informed. Does everyone see where I’m going with this?

    From NBC News this evening (Saturday, June 29th):

    WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden is expected to discuss the future of his re-election campaign with family at Camp David on Sunday, following a nationally televised debate Thursday that left many fellow Democrats worried about his ability to beat former President Donald Trump in November, according to five people familiar with the matter.

    https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2024-election/biden-family-path-forward-disastrous-debate-mess-rcna159591

    Shall we anticipate a formal announcement of Biden’s withdrawal from the race sometime early next week?

    The Democrats’ convention begins on August 19th. Will the party be able to coalesce behind one candidate or will a donnybrook break out between different prospective candidates (Newsom, Whitmer, Harris…and she who must not be named…) who each believe that they should be the standard bearer?

    Will the financially-supported factions of Hamas-supporting protesters be told or paid to stand down and not converge on Chicago during the convention?

    There hasn’t been so much entertainment among socialists since the Stalinists and the Trotskyists went at each other after Lenin died.

    Must remind myself to get more popcorn.

    The Dem insiders were very effective at hiding his condition in 2019-2020 during that election cycle. They knew he was a vile buffoon from his entire time in DC, but his mental condition  was certainly degrading by the end of Obama’s administration and known – even beyond his image ability to screw things up.
    I’ve posited that keeping him off the campaign trail and public eye was a secondary but important aspect of Covid management. (#1 was stopping Trump’s rallies.) The Basement Campaign suited their purpose of not letting him loose on his own and not competing with Trump on the trail. His public presentation was managed to show only what they wanted. They made the election fraud appear within the bounds of possible. I expect they thought they could keep him presentable for 6 years with Jill’s eager agreement and Better Living Through Chemistry. Once re-elected in 2024 they must have figured he would be disposable. They did not take into account Kamala and how truly stupid she is.

    Indeed.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told “You watch too much Fox News.”  And the answer to that is yes, I do.  The 5-10 minutes of Fox News I watch per year is, in fact, too much…

    I think by disposable, that means they can keep in the basement until Jan 2029.   Medically, he can be kept alive for a decade, which is good enough for the opportunists that surround him.   We should expect the gaslighting to be turned up to 11 for the next 5 months.   Those videos of Joe stumbling and mumbling are “cheap fakes”.  Those clips of Democrats saying it is panic time are also “cheap fakes”.   The debate happened and Joe Biden successfully thrashed Trump for being a lying, racist, misogynist that wants to put blacks and women back into chains.

    Most of us have known of Biden’s mental issues since he ran for President in 2020…from his basement. Certainly the media and political elites have known it also. The only people who didn’t know are those who only get their information from the lying mainstream media.

    I just listened to NPR’s On The Media so you don’t have to. First, Brooke Gladstone complained that no one reports on Trump’s age and obvious cognitive issues. Then, she brought on a guest and both went conspiracy theory about the Sinclair Group. This group that in their view is affiliated with “right wing” donors and politicians is creating and spreading stories about Biden’s senility. They have, the guest claims, bought and forced local news stations to broadcast their propaganda. The result being that even local news is no longer trustworthy. IOW, pretty much what one could expect.

    In my view, the job of a good President is to follow the advice of our first President, and avoid entangling foreign alliances.

    Your proposal is a recipe for drawing us into endless, costly wars.  It is precisely contrary to the original conception of our Founders.

    It was foreign meddling that drew both the Pearl Harbor and 9/11 attacks on us.  Neither was a significant threat.

    I note that the country most favored by your view is Israel.

    Well, last time I checked we have alliances with several countries and have a vested interest to maintain commerce globally. It may be time to consider the needs of the century that you currently live in.

    I read Apple News on my phone when I am bored.   Apple news presents a very coherent world view and narrative.  Delusional, twisted, progressive propaganda,   but coherent.   If one used Apple News as a primary news source,  I could see that person thinking Biden was a great president and that everything was going swell.

    This seems to describe the change in Joe’s eyes with variations in his medication:

    Perhaps the next debate will have a ban on people nearby using Bluetooth earbuds for fear of jamming the remote control of Joe’s Adderall pump.
