The Biden Paradox

The Biden Paradox
"Freedom of thought is a powerful thing. Joe Biden said if you don’t vote for him you ain’t black. If you vote for him, you don’t know history. Politicians are a dime a dozen,” said Henderson, "There are African-American voters all over the country who the media is trying to convince to conform to the same old Democratic talking points. You know what that’ll get you? The same old results"

We the People


Not long after the GOP Convention, polls, for what they are worth, seemed to be narrowing. As we all know polls can be influenced by such things as how questions are asked, what questions are asked, who is asked and the woke individuals who might just be tallying up the results. We also know that the most accurate form of polling is the internal polling of political campaigns, the kind the public never sees. Thus, it wasn't really a surprise to see Joe Biden forced to leave the safety of his basement and enter the campaign trail recently.

Before I continue, let me say good morning to BLM and progressives in Pittsburgh PA:



Now back to the Biden campaign. This matter of campaigning is really risky business for them since Joe Biden is suffering from severe cognitive disabilities, what seems to me to be along the lines of the beginning of Alzheimer disease. That presents a very large problem. Joe Biden is the very rare kind of candidate who could lose the election with a single gaffe. There are already signs that he and his vice presidential selection are not doing as well as expected among minority voters.

There is another problem as well. The President has enormous energy. He can go from airport to airport, which is where he now holds his modified rallies. He fulfills his Presidential duties even as he campaigns here, there and everywhere. Joe Biden doesn't have the energy for that. Biden has to focus on one thing at a time and he also requires a lot of preparation. Everything has to be written for him - including the questions he takes as we learned when one gutsy woman spilled the beans in Kenosha:



And finally there is the most dangerous game of all. Recently, Nancy Pelosi joined others in warning Biden not to debate the President, lest the nation be treated to the quick witted vs the dull witted. Biden would not be up to a debate and I doubt he would go through with it.

In the meantime, Biden & Harris have politicized the long awaited vaccine by implying that if it comes before the election it can't be trusted.

Dana Bash asked Harris: “Let’s just say there’s a vaccine that has approved and even distributed before the election. Would you get it?”

Harris: “Well, I think that’s going to be an issue for all of us,” Harris said. “I will say that I would not trust Donald Trump. And it would have to be a credible source of information that talks about the efficacy and the reliability of whatever he’s talking about. I will not take his word for it.”

Thus the skepticism we are now hearing about from various people.

At least Biden can count on the dishonest progressive media to drop all kinds of "bombshells" from "unnamed sources." The kind of stuff the left revels in. Unfortunately, neither the media or democratic party leaders can stop the violence generated by the left going on in American cities. Biden will also have to wear that around his neck!

All of this happened to the democrats because the DNC primary came down to Biden and Sanders. Party leaders knew they couldn't win with Sanders, so they had to get behind the hapless Biden. A lot of lipstick has been applied to the pig since then. 



One final thought: The Biden campaign has presented Biden as a moderate, forcing him to take positions counter to those he expressed during the primary. That means he is now reneging on a deal he made with Sanders. I wonder how that plays out?

Oh well, may the best man win.

Be careful what you ask for, you may get it:

Biden campaign did not give Kenosha speaker a paper with questions

Posts online are misrepresenting what Bennett said to suggest that Biden’s campaign gave her a paper to read at the event. Bennett told reporters after speaking that she was given the paper by Black Lives Activists Kenosha (BLAK), where she is an organizer.

"But as CNN news anchor Don Lemon recently warned his fellow leftists, now the polls are changing. Mr. Lemon apparently fears that the public is sick of seeing the urban unrest. Suddenly, many members of the media want Mr.   Biden   to condemn the rioting and violence.

But if Mr.   Biden   did, he might alienate his now-critical left-wing Bernie base. Yet Mr.   Biden ’s continued reluctance to unequivocally fault the rioters and arsonists may be alienating moderate suburban swing voters.

The same paradox surrounds the debates. Should Mr.   Biden , as promised, debate Mr.   Trump ?

Yes. But would he thereby blow up his candidacy in a moment of incoherence?

This matter of campaigning is really risky business for them since Joe Biden is suffering from severe cognitive disabilities , what seems to me to be along the lines of the beginning of Alzheimer disease.

How can you diagnose severe cognitive disabilities at the scale of early Alzheimer's?   While I agree that Biden is not as sharp as he used to be and that he is a gaffe-machine ( still ), one should rely upon professionals to diagnose mental illness — especially " severe cognitive disabilities ".    So while I agree that Biden could come off poorly with answers such as " ... you know the thing ... " and that it is a campaign risk for Biden to be generating gaffe opportunities, it is an unfounded claim to state he has " severe cognitive disabilities " unless you can back that up with professional citations on his mental health.

Joe Biden doesn't have the energy for that.

On what is this diagnosis based?   Do you have a professional medical report of Biden's physical fitness?

Recently, Nancy Pelosi joined others in warning Biden not to debate the President, lest the nation be treated to the quick witted vs the dull witted.

But she said nothing even remotely close to that.   What she actually said :

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the nation’s top elected Democrat, said on Thursday that former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. should not debate President Trump , telling reporters that she believed her party’s nominee should not “ dignify that conversation with Donald Trump.”

“I wouldn’t legitimize a conversation with him, nor a debate,” Ms. Pelosi said at her weekly news conference on Capitol Hill. She acknowledged that the Biden campaign felt differently, but said she considered Mr. Trump’s behavior during the 2016 debates against Hillary Clinton “disgraceful.”

“I think that he’ll probably act in a way that is beneath the dignity of the presidency — he does that every day,” she said. “I think he will also belittle what the debates are supposed to be about. They’re not to be about skulduggery on the part of somebody who has no respect for the office he holds, much less the democratic process.”

Extreme characterizations should be based on facts.   If one is going to not accept the allegation that Trump privately called WWI KIA suckers and losers based on the fact that this is supported only by hearsay of anonymous witnesses, one should similarly not deem Biden to have severe cognitive disabilities and lacking the energy to keep up with 74 year old Trump.   And certainly, if one is quoting an individual like Pelosi, one should at least Google what she actually said and not invent something entirely different.   ( Note:  I am no fan of Pelosi. )

Why on earth not?  One is based on unnamed sources used by Trump haters, while the other is based on using one's own eyes and the ability to reason.

Because, to my knowledge, you are not a professional who can diagnose severe cognitive disabilities.   Your eyes and ears cannot professionally diagnose physical fitness problems (e.g. energy below that of 74 year old, pudgy Trump).   You are certainly free to form your own personal opinions (still I would advise objectively looking at facts), but that is profoundly different than declaring certain mental and physical disabilities.

Further, if you cannot even quote a person correctly and instead put your own words in her mouth, the credibility of the balance of your claims is diminished.   It is shooting oneself in the foot.   Why do that?

I agree, the deals made to ensure the various D factions rally behind Biden are unknown and it is difficult to say what a president Biden might sign.   This is why I am hoping the Rs hold the Senate (the House seems out of reach).   I am looking for at least a partisan check & balance since the checks and balances built into the CotUS require that we have statespersons who care about their constituents and the country rather than themselves and the continued power of their party and we have very few of those in Congress.

Biden is not allowed to answer a single question off script, his handlers call from a list of hand picked journalists and He reads the scripted answer. He can be seen on video all over YouTube screwing up the answers he is supposed to read.  It's really sad that Democrats would choose a man in this condition, they had 20 some candidates to chose from and they chose Joe.

His campaign has no plan to let him ever make a decision on his own, he is does not have the faculties. Kamala is going to have to run things. Joe's mind is AWOL.

TiG @4.2.1 You are certainly free to form your own personal opinions (still I would advise objectively looking at facts), but that is profoundly different than declaring certain mental and physical disabilities.

This article makes claims of certainty:  "Joe Biden is suffering from severe cognitive disabilities".    That is very different from an opinion piece which would use language such as "It appears to this writer that Joe Biden is suffering from severe cognitive disabilities".   And even in an opinion piece, one would expect "severe cognitive disabilities" to be at least supported with facts.   If you had used less extreme language such as "apparent cognitive decline" I would have agreed with your opinion (where apparent = "seeming real or true, but not necessarily so").

And don't come back with your "what seems to me to be along the lines of the beginning of Alzheimer disease" as proof that you are only expressing your opinion.  Your Alzheimer assessment is indeed phrased as an opinion.   The balance —the points of my comments— are phrased as certainties.

No, It wasn't that kind of an analogy. There is nobody in American politics today who could speak like they, but least of which would be Joe Biden, or are you also going to look us in the eye and say Joe can get up there and speak coherently for 30 minutes?

55% of likely voters believe Joe is in the early stages of Dementia.

55% of likely voters down at Jim Bobs Bait & Tackle do not represent the majority of Americans.

"A new poll suggests that most voters prefer former Vice President Joe Biden over President Donald Trump on issues of law and order and his ability to reduce violence in American cities."

A 56 percent majority said that Biden would do a better job on "establishing law and order," compared to 46 percent for Trump. Biden was favored by 58 percent of voters who said he would be better equipped to reduce violence in cities, while 57 percent believe he is better equipped to handle "civil unrest." Another 55 percent said he would be better on issues of race and policing. The former vice president had the largest advantage in terms of who would best "bring the country together," with 61 percent trusting Biden compared to 39 percent for Trump."

Maybe you don't want to recognize the difference between stating an observation and making false claims.

Oh I see, so you have observed that Biden has " severe cognitive disabilities " and Biden " ... doesn't have the energy ... ".   You, who to my knowledge is not a professional who can diagnose mental and physical disabilities has ' observed ' same nonetheless and can thus make unqualified claims of certainty (which you did) about Biden's mental and physical health.

Right.    jrSmiley_84_smiley_image.gif

Stating that Biden has " severe cognitive disabilities " is an unsubstantiated claim and it is also likely to be false (note the word ' severe ').   The allegation that Trump demeaned WWI vets is also an unsubstantiated claim.   Note that you also now claim that this is a false claim.   You have no supporting facts to deam it false.   The very best you could do is state that you do not believe it and that it is, as of yet, unsubstantiated.

Let me help you. When I say Biden is suffering from cognitive disabilities which seems to me to be along the lines of the beginning of Alzheimer disease - that is an observation of mine.

I knew you would try that.   As I already noted, I have focused on your claims of certainty.   Your allegation of Alzheimer's was phrased as an opinion.  But your claims of certainty that I have repeatedly stated are " severe cognitive disabilities " and " ... doesn't have the energy ... ".   In both cases you have no ' seems to me ' qualification.    Indeed, let's just pull up the full quote instead of the chopped quote you provided:

Vic:  This matter of campaigning is really risky business for them since Joe Biden is suffering from severe cognitive disabilities , what seems to me to be along the lines of the beginning of Alzheimer disease.

You declare Biden has severe cognitive disability and then opine that you think this might be along the lines of Alzheimer's.


I am, by the way, perfectly happy to view this entire article as simply your opinion and that you truly intended it only to be opinion in spite of your choice of language.   The only reason I am continuing to rebut your comments is because you are trying to deflect and that bugs me.

Vic, do you think Jeffery Goldberg knows the names of the four people who told him that Trump disparaged the military on the France trip and elsewhere?

I don't think there are any such people. I think Goldberg wove the story around Trump's disputes with McCain and others to try and influence red-blooded military personnel to turn against the President. The military is not stupid.

Here is what I know about Goldberg:

"In 2002, he used discredited sources — both in Iraq as well as in the George W. Bush administration — to argue that Saddam Hussein was in league with Al Qaeda. We know how that worked out. Still, it got him an award for best reporting on human rights.

Former CIA director,  James Woolsey , who wanted war with Iraq, called it “groundbreaking.”

Goldberg dealt with innuendoes that turned out to be false, yet he kept urging war with Iraq. He made a difference, a negative difference.

Goldberg also suggested in a Q & A that only white males can do 10,000-word cover stories:

Goldberg ran into trouble   in a Q&A   – alongside his own executive editor, Adrienne LaFrance – when he intimated that assigning cover stories to women and minorities on gender and race issues is problematic.

“It’s really, really hard to write a 10,000-word cover story. There are not a lot of journalists in America who can do it. The journalists in America who do it are almost exclusively white males,” he said."

"This matter of campaigning is really risky business for them since Joe Biden is suffering from severe cognitive disabilities , what seems to me to be along the lines of the beginning of Alzheimer disease."

Into something like this:

"This matter of campaigning is really risky business for them since it seems to me that Joe Biden is suffering from severe cognitive disabilities along the lines of the beginning of Alzheimer disease."

An easy grammatical fix that changes the entire meaning of the sentence.   The former is a statement of certainty:  "Joe Biden is suffering from severe cognitive disabilities" whereas the latter is clearly opinion.    But even so, when opining that someone has "severe cognitive disabilities" one should provide a supporting argument since that is an extreme allegation.

Your actual statement opines about Alzheimers but makes a certain allegation about "severe cognitive disabilities".

Many of the examples in this video have to do with his stuttering.  I would post videos of Trump screwing up his words and thoughts, but since you will simply ignore them it is not worth the effort.

I have never written a single word that suggests Trump has the ability to prove the Atlantic allegations wrong.   What I have actually written is that the Atlantic story is unsubstantiated.   That means, Sean, that I am saying the burden of proof is on the Atlantic (and those making the allegations) and not on Trump.

The lack of evidence???  You've never heard Joe Biden struggle to speak?   Lose track of his thoughts?  Call NH Vermont? He even confused his daughter and his wife.

The lack of evidence for the claim that you made.   Here again, what I have written is clear yet you are playing loose with semantics.

Again (more than a dozen times now I have shown this to you), you claimed "Joe Biden is suffering from severe cognitive disabilities".    You did not claim that Biden has apparent cognitive decline (something that your cited evidence would support even for laymen).    "Severe cognitive disabilities" is an extremely strong allegation and the evidence supporting such an allegation necessarily comes from professional cognitive examinations, not from Vic observing a gaffe-prone politician who has lost track of this thoughts.

To wit, as I have noted, if you had claimed apparent cognitive decline then your cited evidence matches that level of claim (and I actually agree with you on that).   But that is not what you have claimed.

Your refusal to acknowledge this is why I continue to rebut your comments.

You've gone many miles to defend Joe Biden today. You say Biden is fine. Remember what you thought of my China opinion?  I say the same to you. Thinking Biden is fine is ridiculous!

Not only am I NOT defending Biden (rather I am critiquing your article in terms of your claims versus the facts in evidence), but I have stated several times that I do not think Biden is 'fine'.   That, in fact, has been a criticism I have made of Biden since he entered the race.

So why is it that you fabricate words for me, I explicitly note how wrong you are, have proof of same, and you come back repeating the same false allegation?   That is now a lie.   So every time you claim that I think Biden is 'fine' note that you are lying.   The question is if you will continue to do so or cease.

They have gotten him through a few serious mini statements, devoid of questions. The first debate will be hosted by Chris Wallace. That means no help for anyone. What happens then?

I don't know if many people remember how Sarah Palin was selected as VP. It was on the basis of one talk she gave in which a McCain campaign official happened to drop by and see it. It was a true outlier - she came across as clear and concise. Her problem wasn't cognitive, she simply had little basic knowledge of anything, such as thinking Africa was a country rather than a continent. After the campaign hastily announced her selection as VP they too decided to hide her away. Just like this, the point came where they had to send her out to speak to a reporter. Believe it or not, Nicole Wallace (then a Republican & McCain operative) was put in charge of Palin.

The rest is history.

That's a tall order LOL

Joe Biden has decades of experience working with both Democrats and Republicans. He's more than qualified spending 8 years just a heartbeat away from the Presidency. Joe reminds me of my grandfather. Joe Biden is compassionate and truly spends time listening to peoples problems instead of lecturing them or insulting them. Joe Biden supports equality for women in the workplace and is pro-choice. Joe Biden isn't above admitting when he's been wrong or apologizing when he makes mistakes. Joe Biden respects our military and veterans and knows what it's like to be a parent of a child in the military and also knows what it's like to lose a wife and a child. Joe Biden respects and supports equal right for lgtbq Americans and minorities and understands that there is a long way to go for racial equality in this country.

Joe Biden supports the 2nd amendment while also rightly understanding that it's not unlimited so he supports sensible gun laws like universal background checks. Joe Biden supports all Americans being able to access affordable health care regardless of pre-existing conditions and supports making the ACA work better for everyone instead of simply dismantling it and leaving tens of millions of Americans without healthcare. Joe Biden acknowledges, like any sane humans with more than half a brain, the reality of global climate change and will work hard to address this and work with companies and our global partners in addressing the predictable climate caused catastrophes the entire globe is already having to deal with.

Joe Biden understands that green jobs are part of a larger solution to address global climate change and will almost certainly be the jobs of the future that help America stay competitive and even be a leader in the green energy industry. Joe Biden understands that a vast majority of America's infrastructure is nearly 100 years old and needs to be retrofitted, rebuilt or replaced which will create millions of good paying jobs over the next decade. Joe Biden knows that Americans rely on our public schools so instead of abandoning them and re-segregating them as school vouchers have done he'll invest in making sure every American child gets a quality education.

On top of all that, he seems like a very likeable man and seems earnestly interested in those he speaks with and in their lives or personal plight they are expressing.

Now you're turn...

Please tell us all about why you like Trump without mentioning Biden, Hillary, Obama, Bill Clinton, democrats, liberals or progressives.

He's offered direct evidence that Trump didn't make the statement at the time and place alleged by the Atlantic, who as you admit, bears the burden of proving it's allegations.   The eyewitness testimony from numerous people present at the relevant time that   contradicts Goldberg's anonymous accusation does in fact equal, case closed. The report is false under any objective weighing of evidence. 

To claim his case is "weak" is beyond bizarre. He has numerous witnesses on record denying the statement was made at the time and place alleged. No one present is on record claiming it was said. Yet, somehow, you characterize it as weak, even while paying lip service to understanding that the actual burden to prove its  allegations is with the Atlantic. 

 Your whole argument that Vic's case is "weak" is premised on his inability to prove a negative, whether you realize it or not. 

 Once you resort to well, "maybe Bolton didn't hear it," then you are in fact discounting all possible evidence in favor of Trump. Because.  That gives away the game,

I do not 'admit' it;  I declared it.

Show us the direct evidence that Trump did not make the statement.   The timing is a detail.   It is the words that make a difference to the electorate.

To claim his case is "weak" is beyond bizarre.

I stated that Vic's argument that 'simply because Bolton did not hear the words means that they words were not spoken' is weak.   Nothing bizarre about that.   Bolton was not with Trump 24/7 so clearly the fact that Bolton did not hear the words is not proof (or even evidence) that the words were not spoken.

Your whole argument that Vic's case is "weak" is premised on his inability to prove a negative, whether you realize it or not. 

Good grief Sean.   Vic's case is weak precisely because it is holding that a negative was proven.   You understand the concept so think this through.   To prove that Trump did not say these words is to prove a negative.   Right?   With me?    So how in hell can you deem Vic's argument to be anything other than weak when it is an argument that tries to prove that something did not happen??   Because Bolton did not witness Trump saying these words, Trump ipso facto did not say those words??   Really?   You buy that?

Come on man, don't play these games.  

Once you resort to well, "maybe Bolton didn't hear it," then you are in fact discounting all possible evidence in favor of Trump.

We are talking about Vic's evidence.   Stick to what we are discussing rather than expand the discussion and then accuse me of ignoring facts in the greater scope.   If you want to put forth an article defending Trump then please do so.   If you want to debate why Vic's Bolton defense is weak then do so.   But don't move the goalposts and/or engage in other intellectually dishonest tactics.

I actually liked Bill Clinton, aka "Slick Willy," but that doesn't mean one has to like his wife, Obama, or Biden. Bill was the first President I was old enough to vote for actually.

Trump has actually done a lot for the middle class in my area. I can't speak for everyone everywhere, but there's a few policies and tax laws that greatly benefited myself as well as many I know personally. As far as Biden being a likable man... only if you enjoy your personal space violated and he wasn't too interested in what the Union member was saying.

Well, Biden's handlers have to prepare him in many ways for 3 late night (for him) debates. He has to be able to think quickly in order to defend his 47 year nothing-burger taxpayer funded political career. I hope that nobody does what Donna Brazille did in 2016.

More uninformed bullshit:

Porsche Bennett, an organizer for Black Lives Activists Kenosha, told Biden she’s “tired” at just 31 years old and worried for her three young, Black children. “For so many decades we’ve been shown we don’t matter,” she said, adding that she’s heard promises from plenty of politicians, but not “action.”

Biden answered that, because he’s white, “I can’t understand what it’s like to walk out the door or send my son out the door or my daughter and worry about, just because they’re Black, they might not come back.”

But he compared the current era of cell phone videos of violent police actions to television footage showing civil rights protesters being beaten more than a half-century ago. He called both circumstances a politically crucial awakening for white Americans. Biden also stressed the disproportionate effects of the coronavirus pandemic and its economic fallout on non-whites.

“I think the country is much more primed to take responsibility, because they now have seen what you see,” Biden told Bennett, the community organizer.

The link you provided is just one of many important organizations that support the study and treatment of dementia-related disease.  Parkinson's Disease is another dementia-related nightmare that can take a devastating toll on patients and their families.  My parents suffered dementia-related diseases, and although they have been gone for almost 2 years, I still remember every minute of what it was like to care for them in the last years of their lives.  Although watching them suffer was horrible, I consider it the most worth-while thing I have ever done.

I am appreciative that you are encouraging people to donate to such an important cause. It goes to show that even an insincere, agenda-driven request for support is better than nothing.

We can only wish Trump were capable of making comments like this , which exhibit a little thoughtfulness. I don't think anyone has ever seen Trump appear to be thoughtful.
