It’s very bizarre and dissonant how there are currently two separate and non-overlapping lines of criticism going on against the campaign of establishment-anointed Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. There are the perfectly accurate criticisms regarding the right-wing, militaristic policy positions of the politician Joe Biden used to be, and then there are the equally accurate criticisms of Biden’s handlers and Democratic Party leadership for wheeling out the dementia-addled husk of a man he currently is to run for the world’s most powerful elected office.

These two debates do not interweave, because they are not relevant to one another. It doesn’t matter what political positions a dementia victim once had; what matters is taking care of him and keeping him away from hazards, like sharp objects and nuclear launch codes. It’s impossible to know what actual political convictions still remain held within a mind that can no longer lucidly string thoughts together anyway.

I hate doing this. I hate repeatedly writing about the obvious and undeniable fact that an old man is exhibiting obvious and undeniable symptoms of incipient dementia. It isn’t fun, and it doesn’t feel good. But the alternative is laying down and allowing the Democratic party and its allied media to gaslight people into believing it’s not a thing, as they are doing currently.

If you do a live Twitter search for the word “stutter”, you will as of this writing see that word being tweeted multiple times per minute on the social media platform as Democrats scramble to defend Biden from people who are accurately highlighting the indisputable fact that the former vice president is showing signs of cognitive decline.  In my interactions with Biden supporters over the last 24 hours I’ve had this irrelevant word suddenly start getting thrown at me, because narrative managers in the mainstream media and the Biden campaign have been aggressively promoting the talking point that Biden’s increasingly frequent neurological misfirings on the campaign trail are actually the result of a longstanding speech impediment.

This is false. While it is true that Biden has periodically exhibited signs of a stutter, the inability to hold on to his own train of thought, forgetting where he is and who he’s with, grossly incorrect use of language, and inappropriate behavior are not symptoms of a stutter.

Here is the Mayo Clinic’s list of symptoms for a stutter, also known as a stammer:

  • Difficulty starting a word, phrase or sentence
  • Prolonging a word or sounds within a word
  • Repetition of a sound, syllable or word
  • Brief silence for certain syllables or words, or pauses within a word (broken word)
  • Addition of extra words such as “um” if difficulty moving to the next word is anticipated
  • Excess tension, tightness, or movement of the face or upper body to produce a word
  • Anxiety about talking
  • Limited ability to effectively communicate

Here is the Mayo Clinic’s list of dementia symptoms:

  • Memory loss, which is usually noticed by a spouse or someone else
  • Difficulty communicating or finding words
  • Difficulty with visual and spatial abilities, such as getting lost while driving
  • Difficulty reasoning or problem-solving
  • Difficulty handling complex tasks
  • Difficulty with planning and organizing
  • Difficulty with coordination and motor functions
  • Confusion and disorientation

Clearly, the symptoms of the speech impediment are very distinct from the symptoms of a degenerative neurological disorder. What follows are dozens of examples suggesting the latter, most of which were compiled by the Twitter user @KoenSwinkels. You may be absolutely certain that Trump will not hesitate to highlight this growing mountain of evidence should Democratic Party leadership successfully install Biden as the nominee; in fact both Trump and his Fox News cheerleaders are doing so already.

Joe Biden is Jeb Bush plus dementia. Trump will be far less charitable with his symptoms than I am here, and if he’s nominated the president will make certain this story dominates news headlines from the convention until November. Anyone who wants Trump out of office should fiercely oppose Biden’s nomination.

1. “Make sure you have the record player on at night… make sure the kids hear words.”

Everyone talked about Biden’s bizarre call for families to make use of an archaic audio technology in response to a debate question about slavery, and some criticized his paternalistic suggestion that black Americans need to be taught how to raise their children correctly, but hardly anyone made a fuss about the fact that his entire answer was also a rambling, incoherent word salad.

It’s easy to overlook linguistic peculiarities when they’re spoken, so I made a verbatim transcript of Biden’s complete answer, exactly as he spoke it. There are no typos. Read it carefully, resisting the urge to mentally re-word it in order to make it make sense:

“Well they have to deal with the — Look, there is institutional segregation in this country. And from the time I got involved I started dealing with that. Redlining. Banks. Making sure that we’re in a position where — Look, talk about education. I propose that what we take is those very poor schools, the Title 1 schools, triple the amount of money we spend from 15 to 45 billion a year. Give every single teacher a raise that equal raise to getting out — the sixty-thousand dollar level.

“Number two: make sure that we bring into the help the —  the student, the, the teachers deal with the problems that come from home. The problems that come from home. We need — We have one school psychologist for every fifteen hundred kids in America today. It’s crazy. The teachers are reca — Now, I’m married to a teacher. My deceased wife is a teacher. They have every problem coming to them. We have make sure that every single child does in fact have three, four, and five year-olds go to school — school, not daycare. School. We bring social workers into homes of parents to help them deal with how to raise their children. It’s not that they don’t wanna help, they don’t want — they don’t know quite what to do. Play the radio, make sure the television, the — ‘scuse me, make sure you have the record player on at night, the-the-the-the phone, make sure the kids hear words. A kid coming from a very poor school, a very poor background, will hear four million words fewer spoken by the time they get there.”

Compare this muddle-headed mess, and all the following subsequent examples, to the crisp, forceful way Biden used to speak:

Or even just a few years ago:

2. “We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women created by the, go, you know the, you know the thing.”

3. “Super Thursday”

4. “I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see help out, if not vote for the other Bi- gimme a look though okay?”

Fact check: Biden has not been a candidate for the United States Senate in a great many years, and is in fact running for the presidency.

5. “Alright Chuck!”

Fact check: Chris. Chris Wallace.

6. “Right here in the state of North South Carolina.”

Fact check: Not a state.

7. Randomly biting his wife’s finger.

Fact check: Don’t do that, Joe.

8. Worked with Deng Xiaoping, who died 23 years ago, on the Paris Climate Accord during the Obama administration.

9. “Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”

10. Whatever the hell this is.

11. We’ll increase healthcare premiums and make sure care is not quality, only affordable.

12. “Look, fat, look, here’s the deal.”

13. “My deceased son was the Attorney General of the United States.”

Beau Biden was only the Attorney General of Delaware.

14. Being aggressive and inappropriate with Iraq war veterans, wrongly insinuating that his son died in the war.

US veterans recently confronted Biden over his support for the Iraq invasion, one saying “My friends are dead because of your policies.”

“So’s my son,” Biden replied. “He was in Iraq, okay? For a year. Not that it matters, right?”

“I’m not going after your son,” the veteran said.

“You better not,” Biden replied.

Biden’s son was in Iraq from 2008 to 2009. He died in 2015, of cancer.

15. This incoherent word salad.

Here’s a transcript of an answer Biden gave to a question at a town hall. Read through it, resisting the urge to mentally revise it into something more coherent:

“And so I was saying that, and what they turned around and said, Joe Biden said, in effect, they said, that Joe Biden said that what he was told, that what, that what the white supremacists argue, that we have no problem, that our, our, our basic English jurisprudential system is not the problem. The problem is those countries like Africa and Asia and those places, they’re the reason why we have all these problems. So they turn it around to make it sound like that, and by the way, the title of the article is, was, is the Washington Post ‘The Deceptively (indecipherable) of Joe Biden Singles, Signals What Is Coming’ and that is that’s a whole bunch of lies. The generic point I’m making here is that, what has happened is that, I know we’re going to get in to, whomever the nominee is of the Democratic Party, is going to have a plethora of lies told about him or her, and misrepresentations and this went on the internet, this edited article, it got retweeted by some press people and then they realized it was edited to make it look like something not… white supremacists, see, Biden’s acknowledging that the problem here is that that all those folks, all those minority folks are the problem. And so, in essence. And so they corrected, they corrected. You’re going to see a lot more of it. You’re going to see a lot more of not only my statements being taken out of context, and lied about, or altered, you’re going to see whomever the Democratic nominee is because that’s how this guy operates. Now. Whether or not I can win?”

16. “We choose truth over facts.”

17. “150 million people have been killed since 2007 when Bernie voted to exempt the gun manufacturers from liability.”

This would be about half the population of the United States. Pretty sure that would’ve made bigger headlines.

18. Confusing Theresa May with Margaret Thatcher.

19. Confusing Angela Merkel with Margaret Thatcher.

20. “You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier.”

21. Rambling confused gibberish, including saying Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr were assassinated in the late 70s.

Both men were assassinated in 1968.

22. Fix the problem of violence against women by “punching at it and punching at it and punching at it.”

23. Implementing a childcare tax credit would “put 720 million women back in the workforce.”

This would be more than double the entire US population.

24. Thought he was in Vermont when he was in New Hampshire.

25. Confused New Hampshire and Nevada.

26. Said he was vice president during the Parkland shooting.

Biden left the office of the vice presidency in January 2017. The Parkland shooting was February 2018.

27. Said 1976 when he meant 2014.

28. Said he’s looking forward to “appointing the first African American woman to the United States Senate.”

Nobody “appoints” senators; they’re elected. The first African American woman in the US Senate took office in 1993.

29. “Go to Joe 30330 and help me in this fight.”

Biden apparently received instructions from his team to tell debate viewers to text “Joe” to 30330, but these directions were too complicated for him. He wound up sending viewers to a random empty URL which was subsequently bought up by a Buttigieg supporter.

30. Made, then dropped, claim that he was arrested in South Africa while trying to visit Nelson Mandela in prison.

31. “Clipping coupons at the stock market.”

That’s not a thing, Joe.

32. Confused his wife and his sister.

33. Jill Biden’s face revealing a flash freakout when he starts forgetting what he’s saying.

34. Claimed he had the support of the “only” African American woman that had ever been elected to the senate, while the other one was standing on the stage with him.

35. “Why why why why why why why!”

36. Referred to Bernie Sanders as “the president”, then, still unable to remember his name, called him “my friend Vermont”.

37. Also called Cory Booker “the president”.

38. Repeatedly forgot Obama’s name, called him “President… My Boss”.

39. “My longfriend timefriend and she’s a friend she’s been my friend in and out of public life.”

40. Saying “an Obiden-Bama Democrat” after being allowed to speak for seven minutes.

41. “Because we cannot get re-elected… we cannot win this re-election… excuse me, we can only re-elect Donald Trump… if in fact we get engaged in this circular firing squad here.”

42. Yelling at a Detroit factory worker, calling him “full of shit” and “a horse’s ass”, babbling about “AR-14”s, shushing a female aide, then defending it afterward by saying “I’m surprised that Sanders is joining Trump. It’s surprising.”

43. Saying it’s two years between March and November, then correcting himself and saying it’s actually one year between March and November, then correcting himself again and saying it’s actually one year between March and January.

That’s it for now. Let me know if I missed any good ones; I’ll probably keep this updated with all the latest neurological misfirings until this discussion goes mainstream like it should already be.

141 responses to “Stop Calling It A “Stutter” :  Here Are Dozens Of Examples Of Biden’s Dementia Symptoms”

  1. Speech Pathologist here with over 30 years of experience working with stutterers, stroke patients, and people with neurological disorders. Fluency disorders and neurological disorders are two of my areas of specialty. While I can’t make a definitive diagnosis as I have never personally evaluated Joe Biden, you are spot on that there is something more of a neurological decline to his speech and language pattern than stuttering. The telling factor is comparing his speech from five years ago to now. True stutterers are fairly consistent throughout their lives. They may experience more disfluency in certain situations or when nervous, but they do not present with confused answers like we see in these examples and there is not sudden and rapid onset and decline. I tried to have this discussion with some fellow speech therapists who are huge Biden supporters and former co-workers, and the vitriol was amazing. All I asked was for all of us to put our politics aside and imagine that Biden was a client coming to us for a diagnosis. I asked them if they thought he had symptoms of stuttering or dementia, or some other type of neurological decline, such as a mild stroke. They refused to even speculate and swore it was definitely stuttering. My point to them was that if it was progressive neurological decline, that it would be elder abuse to be placing such a person in repeated and increasingly stressful situations that could cause further distress and exacerbate any medical issues. You would have thought that I wanted the man roasted alive, such was the verbal attack on my knowledge and character. It is a sad day when colleagues and friends cannot have an honest conversation about something that we are supposed to all be very knowledgable about. Thanks for the great article. I thought you did a great job of giving examples.

    1. Thanks for this valuable contribution, Annie Rose. A diagnosis with which i fully concur.
      Evidently you are perplexed at the inability of your colleagues to put aside their opinions, a topic which is generally left unexamined, buried by empty cliches like “entitlement to opinion”.
      To me, as an ontologist, this inability is a major cognitive dysfunction which is almost unbreakable ; a topic which evades discussion and analysis.
      I call these psychoLogical aberrations cognitive blindSpots, and find significance in the observable pattern of topics in which discontinuities of Reasoning dominate.
      Other topics which characteristically evoke the same bizarre dogmatism include evil and its dynamics, impeccability, pride, and generally dissent from any orthodoxy.
      Strange as it may sound, observation will bear out the existence of perspectives and ideas which nobody can think about. Not just the unpalatable realities, like our appointment with death, but seemingly-harmless abstract ideas can trigger vehement tactics of avoidance & alarm.
      Western society has a long history of ill-treating philosophers who venture beyond orthodoxy.
      The ontological detective asks ; why is it so ? Who benefits .?.
      What is lost by the stifling of insight and innovation ?
      What price have we paid for the false comforts of enforced conformity ?
      Evidently, impeccability is part of the forbidden knowledge,
      distinguished because the typical reaction is as to other unthinkable propositions :
      immediate disBelief, change the subject, act as though it was never spoken.
      I use impeccability as an example of forbiddenKnowledge, because it is recommended by the Toltec, from whom i have learned much. Briefly, impeccability is acting out an intent to push the limit of my ability in everything i do. There is no mastery of impeccability … in that it cannot be completed ; it is an elusive objective (as distinct from a destination).
      Impeccability combined with truthfulness acts like a navigational device in the living of life.
      It has been a longstanding practice of mine to tell new acquaintances of some element of my reality map which is being tested in my quest for forbidden knowledge. A taste of heresy is evokative of their reflexive behaviour, revealing their underlying character and beliefs, but also … there are hints of a shadow presence.
      Because of a lifetime spent at odds with the sinister ethics of religion,
      i have a longstanding interest in the workings of character and morality.
      Many times have i observed that when regular folk encounter a forbidden idea,
      their train of logic is “instinctively” derailed by emotion and insistent internal dialogue.
      But this seeming-instinct originates from a foreign installation [see mud shadow],
      as distinct from the acuity and percipience of our wordless native mind.
      It takes grit to look beyond the strategic smokescreen
      into the entire spread of information, as you have done so elegantly with Caitlin’s Biden examples.
      To those who sense the value of what has been forbidden by the domesticators of mankind, know this : we have to fight for every scrap of opposed truth .!.
      Freedom is what is at stake for each of us.
      Not the pretencious lies peddled by the United States of Prohibition,
      noR the beguiling promises of religions’ afterlife scenarios,
      but authentic freedom, as in living the life of a sovereign individual,
      being deliberate about taking responsibility for the what and how of everything we do
      or decide to leave undone.
      Without accountability to ourselves, we are playthings of socialised impulse.
      So i suspect whether an impulse has my best interest at heart.
      Do not let impulse motivate unquestioned ; this moral hygiene, dear reader, is entirely up to You.
      Forbidden-Knowledge is a mountain to climb, with perils and achievements.
      To see the view, and reap the enhancement of life, we must exercise courage and diligence.
      The challenges of forbidden-knowledge will introduce you to your true self,
      and to the escape-adventure of a lifetime.
      Further notes on Impeccability :
      “Impeccability is not morality”, the nagual Juan said. “It only resembles morality. Impeccability is simply the best use of our energy level. Naturally, it calls for frugality, thoughtfulness, simplicity, innocence ; and above all, it calls for lack of self-reflection.
      “Warriors fight to eliminate self-importance as a matter of strategy, not moral principle.
      Your [Castenada’s] mistake is to understand what I say in terms of morality.”
      “I see you as a highly moral man,” I insisted.
      “You’ve noticed my impeccability, that’s all,” he said.
      “Impeccability is nothing but the proper use of energy. I’ve stored energy, and this makes me impeccable. To understand this, you have to store enough energy yourself.” [to cross a threshold of perception.]
      Warriors take a strategic inventory of their life and circumstances,
      then decide which activities can be changed to allow themselves a respite,
      in terms of expending their energy.
      This strategic inventory covers only behavioral patterns which are not essential to our survival and well-being. Eradicating self-importance (it being the non-essential activity which consumes the greatest amount of our energy-of-awareness) is essential. . [Impeccability stores energy, because it prevents regrets.]
      Freedom is contagious. It is transmitted ; its carrier is an impeccable nagual.
      Many people may not appreciate the gift of freedom, and that’s because they don’t want to be free.
      Freedom is frightening [because the parasite fears losing its host.] But not for us.
      One of the strategic decisions the new seers made, is never to allow our assemblage points to move permanently to any position other than of heightened awareness.
      From heightened awareness, the seers actually resolved the dilemma of futility, discovering that the solution is not simply to choose an alternate world in which to die, but to choose total consciousness, total freedom.
      By choosing total freedom, the new seers unwittingly continued in the tradition of their predecessors, becoming virtually-immortal, the quintessential death defiers.
      `The new seers discovered that when the assemblage point is moved repeatedly between the confines of the unknown and a position at the limit of the known, then suddenly released, it moves like lightning across the entire [darkMatter] cocoon of man, aligning all the emanations inside the cocoon at once, triggering the Fire From Within [ie entering into the thirdAwareness.]
      “The new seers burn with the force of alignment,” the nagual Juan went on, “with the force of will, which they have turned into the force of intent through a life of impeccability. Intent is [becomes] the alignment of all the amber emanations of awareness .. so it is correct to say that total freedom means total awareness.”

  2. I suspect that Biden’s handlers are banking on whoever his running mate is to be the real candidate. Their current strategy seems to be to let Trump hang himself with his own incompetence and let his COVID body count win the election for Biden, whom they seem to be keeping out of the spotlight as much as possible. After the election, or even before, should Biden’s condition deteriorate, my guess is that they will have him step down due to “health concerns” and have his running mate take over.

  3. Yeoman’s work,

  4. Doctors and life long stutterers have come out and stated again and again and again that people with stuttering problem display everything you claimed, they try ti fill silence and stumbles with other words. I am a stutterer myself and I face all of these in my 20s and now 30s.

    But despicable thrash scum like the writer of this article dont care about this. Clinton suddenly had parkinsons and Alzeimers as soon as she was leading Bernie

    What I find really sad is that this is the way you need to earn your living. Lying and spreading fake news on behalf of Donald Trump of all people. You do realiaze whats on the internet will live forevefr and your next generations are going to spit on your face for how low you have fallen here

    I only pity the genuine gullible Bernie fans who find solace in such thrash.The author exploits the likes of them with this. I would imagine after hillary did not develop parkinsons or alzemiers these poor guys would wise up. But guess not. There is one born every day

    This scum of a humann being will continue targeting the gullible to earn money and be an useful idiot for Trump. And poor gullible Bernie bros will keep falling for such garbage. And dont understand why they come across as so pathetic just for targeting someone’s stutter.

    1. No matter how many times you call an obvious and undeniable change in cognitive functioning a “stutter”, it will still be an obvious and undeniable change in cognitive functioning. The footage of how Biden used to speak is right there, right in the article that you are commenting on. It’s not the same person. Anyone can see it for themselves. No amount of histrionics and name-calling will change this.

        Biden used to plagiarize speeches, A LOT in the 80s if u recall. I certainly do. The situation made him a laughing stock, and basically sidelined him for decades in politics. That said, he had no cognitive impairments at the time, as he could recite speeches and monologues off the cuff, verbatim at the time. Only problem is he never credited or cited the people whom he copied them from. He also told people he had three degrees and graduated top of his class. Neither were true, he had a single degree, and finished 79th out of 83 in his class. Anyway, fast forward 40 years and 2 aneurysms later, and we have a noticeable problem with cognitive impairment. I dont think Joe should be running, I think he needs help and should be spending his “sundowning” years with his wife and family.

        Now, speaking of mental disorders, theres also a flaming Marxist running for office if you havent heard…

          Joe Van Steenbergen

          Don’t forget that Biden had the top of his head literally taken off, twice, to treat aneurysms.

    2. Not only harsh, harsh, but with duplicitous sanctimony an overwhelming sauce in your shit sandwich.
      One thing you cannot do is make reality conform with rhetoric.
      Unlike the anonymous harsh, the noble Caitlin has demonstrated her incisive sobriety often enough.
      You shall not fool her regular readers.
      Quite the character assassin is “harsh”, with skills polished by decades of malice.
      Did nobody tell you ?
      Unpleasant people are their own punishment.
      Fake superiority is socially toxic.
      We become what we do.

  5. I see the same symptoms my mother had toward the end. Her dementia took about 10 years to where it could not be ignored. It was a slow progression. She eventually became a danger to herself and had to be put in a care home.

    What I do not understand is how the family can look the other way. Not admitting to what is happening is not doing him any favors.
    In the next two years he will not be coherent and will need around the clock watching.

    Stress makes everything worse.

    1. If vegetable Joe can retain enough seeds in his head long enough to get elected in November, his VP can take the reins of power the day after the election and, after the VP takes the oath of office in January, the VP-turned-president can then shut down any investigations of Joe and any of his family members; any other congress people who may have had their, or their relatives, hands in the Ukraine cookie jar; as well as any investigations of the famous Russiagate coup plotters. All of this would simply go away from public view if only Joe can hold it all together for just a few more months. Sweep it all under a great big carpet and carry on with the way things used to be under O’bomb’em …………… only with a greatly intensified anti-Russia/China agenda.
      This great, and getting greater by the second, “Real Life Movie” is going to put the Hollywood and Netflix creations to shame. For example, just imagine if mumbling Joe selects Hitlery to be his VP and the above scenario actually comes to pass! President-elect Biden on the night of the election, President-elect Clinton II the next day, even without Her Royal Highness getting a single vote! And then full-fledged President Clinton II in late January; no doubt with the first First Husband, Mr. Cigar, at her side to give her a great big congratulatory kiss after Her Coronation.
      And for your added viewing pleasure, there has already been one murder in this movie due to politics. We may very well see more between now and November, so STAY TUNED! (I’m hoping that we get to see a real donnybrook in the US House or Senate between now and November ……… you know, like the ones we’ve seen recently in Ukraine, Turkey, etc. I want to know if those powerful elderly farts can take a punch to the chin.)

        The Biden family should be forced to crowd themselves into a Ukrainian apartment for the duration of winter, living on a typical Ukrainian income. They won’t be able to afford to put the heater on because someone from America looted the country.

        1. If you want to learn more about the Biden / Ukraine relationship AFTER the US’s illegal coup in Ukraine, I can think of no better source of information than Rudy Giuliani’s recently-inaugurated podcast:

          Of course Rudy goes absolutely nowhere near the decades-long, US-bought Ukrainian corruption that led up to the coup.

    2. If we’re really, really lucky, over the next few months we’ll get to see some US meddling in other countries’ affairs come home to infect the halls of Congress:

  6. Interesting, yet unfortunate, examples of an individual struggling with what appears to be dementia. As someone who has been around a family member suffering from this terrible disease, another telling sign is the person having flashes of anger, which surface when challenged or when experiencing a lack of memory. These outbursts will continue to occur and increase until dementia totally takes over.

  7. “My long friend time friend, who is a friend, and has been a friend, in and out of public life.”

    -Joe Biden

  8. Loved this advice from CNBC:

    “With Super Tuesday’s grueling campaign and travel challenges behind him, it’s time for the Biden campaign to take their candidate out of the public eye and as many unscripted events as possible. That includes trying to reduce the number of debates versus Sanders and relying on more of Biden’s growing list of Democratic Party backers to do as much of the talking for him until Election Day.”

      The last emperor of China and the current Dalai lama were lifted up onto their respective thrones and had their childhoods stolen from them. Now we have an attempt to push Joe Biden onto the throne and steal from him the moments of his life when he should be saying his last cognitive goodbyes to his family and friends. All three of these acts were/are being perpetrated by people heavily dependent on the maintenance of the status quo; against the tide and signs of the times.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all wealthy Anglo-Saxon Property Owners are created superior, that they are endowed by Jesus with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are killing Redskins and stealing their land, importing, owning, and sweating Slaves and indentured Servants, and taxing their Inferiors to support Endeavours of mutual Benefit to their own Selves.

    I mean, sure, that wasn’t the final version, after the PR flacks, spin doctors, and marketers gussied it all up, but it was definitely Jefferson’s original first draft!

  10. In a normal election in a normal country anybody showing such obvious signs of dementia like Joe Biden wouldn’t have a hope a hope in hell of winning an election. But in the U.S. where elections are bought and sold by the donor class anything is possible.

  11. Well I don’t see any of them, D or R or I or L or xyz worth me walking across the street to vote. None have the nation at the top of their priorities. But I would like to remind everyone that we all age and let me tell you it goes faster then you might like. And do I need to remind everyone that Trump and Bernie are in their mid seventies as well. As for Biden,,, I don’t see a lot of difference between now an years ago. Maybe a little worse. As a reminder, Karma can be a real b…. . Just sayin….

      Incorrect. Trump is 73, not in his “mid seventies”. Biden and Bernie however are 77 and 78 respectively.

  12. If feeble Joe is the nominee, Trump will eat his bones, maybe set up to fall like Kerry vs keep the war fiasco on track and protect the Russia scare on behalf of the Mil-Bebe complex…Why Tulsi was blacked out and Bernie being sabotaged….Can we survive D.C. swine?

    How can people justify voting for this man?!

    Isn’t the entire goal to nominate a candidate with a plausible shot at defeating Donald Trump?

    If he manages to get the nomination we’ll have to witness the corporate media bending over backwards to try and pretend he’s completely normal and lucid, when anyone with eyes and ears can see he’s clearly losing it.

      Nobody can justify voting for either main D candidate at this point frankly. Its just sad.

      “Isn’t the entire goal to nominate a candidate with a plausible shot at defeating Donald Trump?”

      The point has NOTHING TO DO with “beating Trump”. Trump is neither a platform nor an agenda! In fact, thats the most partisan hack take possible, like something Rachel Maddow would say. It has EVERYTHING to do with electing someone who offers the American people something beneficial. To date, we are being offered marxism and division and a dementia addled near octogenarian whos had two anuerysms. God help us, and god further help those that foolishly think the election is a partisan popularity contest, and not a measure of our desires and needs as citizens.

  14. As usual, Caitlin figures it out first and says what needs saying : Joe Biden is way past his use by date.
    Until reading this collation, i had not realised how advanced his senility has become.
    Hard to believe that the insiders don’t know what is plainly obvious from his own mouth.
    Maybe they think Joe would be a beloved puppet like Ronald Reagan was for his administration, but Biden will lose to Trump just as Caitlin predicts, skewered by a triumphant Trump with an opponent even more addled than himself.
    And lose with a low turnout, because the party machine sabotaged Bernie, the only candidate who inspires with his decency and vision of a better USA. The only one with the guts to stop the “war on Drugs”.
    Biden’s brain curdled back about the time that propagandists were falsely accusing cannabis of being a “gateway drug”.
    The Democrats are so addicted to protecting Billionaire interests that they would rather lose to Trump than win with Bernie. This moral blindness is what worries me most about the USA.
    And good upon Caitlin for countering the weasel words from John Preston.

    1. Jimmy Dore has been airing these clips for over a year. Caitlin did a great job, but left out the vid of Biden ranting about raves in the 80s. “They are in the desert….find the rationale.” Biden had a two aneurysms in 1988, both right and left.

      1. KlatuBerataNicto Avatar

        I like Jimmy Dore, I only fault him for his bizarre love of national socialism. Otherwise hes generally spot on with most political topics. And yes, Biden should be spending time with his family during his “sundowning” years. The man needs help, not a global stage.

  15. “Nonsense” Indeed.

  16. Yea let’s unify around the man with dementia as our leader. Watch enough of Biden speeches recently and it’s no secret that the man is confused about where he is and what he’s running for. There are many examples of this, pretty much each time. It doesn’t take a genius to see that the man is mentally unstable. This on top of being a corrupt politician whose votes and policies have supported bloody illegal wars, free trade agreements, and corporate free passes. He is not someone who cares about people. He cares about power and money, and represents corporate interests. And he has dementia. It’s unfathomable to me why anyone would vote for him unless they are completely blind, uneducated, or acting as a sheep. It’s a testament to the intelligence and awareness (or rather the lack of it) of the American people. We have a man who is calling out these corporate parrots for their ties to the military industrial complex. Bernie Sanders speaks about how much evil they have done and cheated, lied, killed, and stolen from the people, domestically and abroad. He offers them solutions on how to get the power back and better their lives. And what do the people do? They mock him and call him unelectable and rally around the demented man who doesn’t give a fuck about them. The classic American way.

    1. Nancy Pelosi, who is about the same age as Jibbering Joe, also displays many similar verbal gaffs, misfires and freeze-ups. I’m sure that professional analysts have some technical term for these brain cramps, though I don’t know it. Hillary Clinton was also prone to zone out, sometimes accompanied by eye rolling, during her last presidential campaign. When anyone pointed these behaviors out, they were accused of being Russian bots–good company if you ask me.

      Look, I’m 73 myself and it bugs me when I fail to remember proper names (especially first names) as well as I used to in my salad days. If I were a pol running for office, I’d expect the opposition to pick on ANY flaw, real or contrived. Joe has been called out on such a flaw. It is up to him to prove his critics wrong. Frankly, I doubt he can overcome the second law of thermodynamics which states that the entropy (disorder) of any closed system increases with time. Even the entire universe will ultimately progress to all encompassing “heat death.”

      All you Joe promoters should take the challenge laid down, independently, by Jimmy Dore and Kyle Kulinski yesterday. Go back and watch Joe’s debates in past campaigns on You Tube and compare to his performances today. Note the astounding deterioration.

    If trustworthy media hadn’t covered up Ronald Reagan’s obvious dementia during his re-election campaign and second term, East Germany would still be a thing. If Joe Biden isn’t gently wheeled into the White House next January, prepare to be annexed by Vladimir Putin. The uncouth use of snake emojis on Twitter proves that people aren’t entitled to healthcare. We should daily thank a 2000-year-old manger baby for allowing MSDNC to save us.

  18. “I hate doing this.”

    Disingenuous nonsense Caitlin.
    If you really mean that, then you would exercise a degree of self control.
    You’ve just become a useful idiot for the far-right.

    1. Bullshit. You’re a useful idiot of the far right for trying to silence anyone who rightly points out that Biden’s undeniable dementia symptoms will get Trump re-elected if he’s the nominee.

      1. Strawman argument Caitlin.
        I’m not trying to silence you at all, just pointing out your poor form.

        I just draw you back to your comment, and how you hung yourself on your own petard.
        If you really hated writing this so much, why did you go ahead and publish it?
        Clearly, it’s an irrelevant piece of tabloid nonsense, and I don’t accept your ad hoc response.
        As Bill Clinton said, it’s the economy stupid.
        Americans are probably the most disengaged people in the Western world when it comes to politics.
        All they worry about is their capitalistic system.
        I can’t see how the disability that you alleged Joe Biden has, will preclude him from becoming president.

        You write some thought provoking and intelligent stuff in New Dawn magazine.
        You stick to that, instead of writing trash for the far-right PWT.

        1. That’s just you making emotional, insubstantial noises. I don’t know how to respond to that.

          1. Pot-kettle… Caitlin.

            “…making emotional, insubstantial noises.”

            Including my comments in praise of your writings in New Dawn magazine?

            1. That’s just you saying you like it when I write things which don’t make you uncomfortable and dislike it when I write things which do make you uncomfortable. The fact that someone is running for the most powerful elected office on the planet while exhibiting the many, many symptoms of cognitive decline I’ve documented here needs to be highlighted, and highlighted in time to prevent him from becoming the nominee. If that makes you uncomfortable, too bad. EVERYONE should be talking about this, not just me.

              1. Again, non sequitur…

                I’ll make it simple, again, you write some tabloid trash, yet at times, you write some thought-provoking stuff.

                Until it’s proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Joe Biden has problems with his mental faculties, you’re just speculating with tabloid nonsense.

                1. That’s just some arbitrary, nonsensical rule you made up in your head just now.

                  1. Again, Pot-kettle.

                    I’m really surprised at your flailing.
                    I have been consistent all through my comments.

      2. Trump will win regardless of the Dem nominee.
        Democrats and their policies are insane.

        1. You don’t have to be a medical professional to see that Joe Biden shows clear obvious signs of age-related cognitive impairment. Thanks Caitlin for compiling this list of examples. Whether he’s got Alzheimer’s or some other form of dementia is up to his doctors to figure out. What’s sad is that his family lets him continue this charade.

          1. And hillary suddenly had parkinson .and Alzheimer’s as soon as she started leading Bernie

            Multiple doctors and people with stutter have come out stating that having a stutter often causes you to replace the word with whatever you can to fill the gap and its common

            But absolute garbage scum like you wont stop spreading lies. The worst kind of sore l,osers and a primje example of the scum Bernie attracts., No wonder he is getting absolutely thrashed and the only legacy he and his supporters will have is being useful idiots for Trumpo in 2016

      3. KlatuBerataNicto Avatar

        Both wrong. Newsflash: NO such thing as the far right. Term was literally coined in the wake of the 2016 election fallout. Scapegoat term. I DARE either one of you to go to a Trump rally anywhere in the country and find a single “alt-right” person. You wont find one, nor will you find any “cultists”, I guarantee it.

    2. The entire Democratic Party Establishment consists of right-wingers whose “useful idiocy” is an exercise in stage management of illusion and outright farce. It pays well and serves the same concentrated economic powers that the Republican Party Establishment serves. Two “sides” of the same coin.

      My take is that Caitlin hates “doing this” is because of a well-developed capacity to “feel” for a personally tragic plight of another human being—even such a man as Joe Biden, who in my view has been a perpetrator of much too much inhumanity.

      1. KlatuBerataNicto Avatar

        Establishment is the key word. The establishment doesnt like outsiders. They will try to take down outsiders by all means necessary. Ralph Nader, Ron Paul, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, Tulsi Gabbard, etc. If youre not a part of their click, they will use all their power, media and agency insiders to destroy you before you can ruin their rigged game.

      @Peter Harris:

      Leaving aside the question of whether Democratic Party leadership is any less far-right than Republican Party leadership, who’s the useful idiot, here? Biden’s cognitive decline is so glaring that even a subliterate playground bully like Trump will be able to eviscerate him on the debate stage and in ads, tweets, and sound bites. If the DNC actually nominates Biden and stands by him through the general, there is a very good chance Trump will be re-elected. (The Fortune 500 companies and Forbes 400 billionaires who bankroll the Democratic Party’s leaders and give them their marching orders will be fine with that, incidentally, but I said we’d leave behind the question of how far-right Democratic Party leadership has become.)

      And yes, empathetic people (like Caitlin) don’t enjoy drawing attention to someone else’s clear signs of dementia, even in their political enemies, because dementia is inherently sad. But in a candidate for the Presidency, dementia is also dangerous, and it must be called out.

      To my mind, the Bernie campaign is going to have to tackle the issue — respectfully and tastefully, but forcefully — before the remaining primaries take place. Whether you’re a progressive who wants substantial political change or just a “Resistance” Democrat who wants Anyone But Trump, Bernie strikes me as the only candidate who has a shot at making that happen. The only way to do that is to ensure that Bernie has an absolute majority of pledged delegates going into the Convention. And the only way to do that is to take Joe Biden out ASAP, no matter how distasteful and disloyal — “Joe is a friend* of mine” — it may seem.

      *I’d remind Bernie that just as “friends don’t let friends drive drunk,” friends don’t let friends run for President demented.

  19. Joe Biden aka Charlie McCarthy aka Mortimer Snerd.

  20. Wasn’t there a clip from one of the “debates” of Sanders going over to someone else’s podium to whisper something? I can’t remember if it was Biden, but I vaguely remember Sanders was offering clarification to someone who was confused.

  21. Dopey Joe would have a hard time living up to the standards of Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho, president of the American Empire in the movie “Idiocracy.” Perhaps he will name Ditzy Nancy Pelosi to be his VP for the coming shitshow that would be his administration.

    One wonders if the DNC is actually serious about wanting Dopey Joe to serve in the White House, or if this is only about blocking Bernie and naming Killary or Money Bags Bloomberg as the nominee on a second ballot that will be dominated by the Super Delegates. Perhaps the conspiracy goes even further and it is all a charade to ensure that Trump remains their sock puppet, which the DNC could never admit but strives to orchestrate.

    (Maybe my comments won’t be 503’d out of existence like repeatedly happened yesterday. Get your geeks on those hackers, CJ!)

    1. I tried to post a comment on CN last evening and had a vanishing act. I retyped the two paragraphs and tried posting again with the same result. My permanent “moderation” status (10 months strong) has been bad enough—I see from time stamps and availability that many posts are “timely”—but when outside “factors” pose additional roadblocks, it gets a bit enervating.

      1. All of my posts over there have been “moderated” since the Pleistocene. For quite a stretch they all just disappeared without even being acknowledged. It’s like they got a less touchy moderator in recent months. I try to write like CJ here does: rigorously logical but salted with colorful language. I think if people experience some emotional response whilst reading your text, even if its a chuckle, they will appreciate or remember it more. Not all of us septuagenarians are senile yet. Keep those quips flying, Gregory!

  22. In other news, it was reported after the markets closed on Thurs that Jamie Dimon, CEO of JP Morgan mega-bank, underwent heart surgery.

    What is shocking, and possibly unbelievable about this, is the belief that Dimon actually has a heart. Millions of victims would disagree.

  23. BTW, these D candidates endorsement of Crazy, and getting crazier by the day, Joe Biden is in reality-land an endorsement of the Deep State, which is an endorsement of a CONTINUATION of a “policy” the US attempting to establish Full Spectrum Dominance of Mother Earth and all her creatures, from plants to people to “resources”. Any candidate for policy-setting/enforcing offices who does not support that overall policy will be resisted by the Elite with LITERALLY “whatever it takes” and this includes what we are witnessing with Joe and Bernie.
    Once again with feeling, as much as we the 99.9% may hate to do it, we must seek out alternative candidates for public office and, having found them, actually vote for them even though they do not appear on MSM and some people we bump into have never heard of them. For example did you ever hear of the “Socialist Equality Party” and its candidate Joseph Kishore for president and Norissa Santa Cruz for VP? If you like what you see, vote for it. Otherwise, it ain’t gonna happen.

      After watching a series of random interviews with people on the street in America assessing their basic knowledge, I estimate that 50% of Americans would not even understand the Socialist Equality Party presentation posted above by Ishkabibble. Of those who do understand it, many would be terrified of the word ‘socialism’ and others would be afraid of losing their jobs in the current capitalist system if a massive social re-structuring was undertaken.
      People living within the capitalist society can be likened to fungus on a rotting log. The fungus knows not that the log will soon disintegrate.
      Hopefully after the disintegration occurs, ideas like those presented by the Socialist Equality Party will be implemented.

        I honestly don’t care what political system you prefer to be subjected to – that’s an individual’s choice.

        My question is this: Why do you want to force your choice onto others while at the same time rejecting having someone else’s choice forced on you?

        In the animal world there are behaviors of my property and our property. The animal world couldn’t function with a behavior of property of others. That is why might makes right is a predominant force in the animal world.

        Conversely, the human world can’t exist without a (very strong) concept of the property of others since might makes right reappears and the human world reverts back to the animal world. You know, red in tooth and claw, coming soon to your neighborhood.

        It took 10,000+ years before people accepted the fact that other people are entitled to their own religious beliefs.

        Political beliefs are the way one thinks it best to survive in the real world, religious beliefs are the way one thinks it best to survive in the afterlife.

        Only the person(s) believing them should be subjected to them.

          I agree with you in that no-one has the right to force a political system onto others, especially those who don’t want that system. However we do need some kind of governance to ensure fairness.
          For example: A mining company wants to go into a farming area and start fracking the underground gas. They are forcing their choice (and their perceived right) to take the gas onto the local farming population. In many cases they use the state police force to back them up. The local people want to force their idea that the groundwater should not be poisoned onto the mining company. What is the solution?

    2. I posted the SEP’s video NOT because I endorse that party, but simply to point out, to bring to the attention of readers and commenters on this website, that there are ALTERNATIVE CANDIDATES to those served up and supported 24/7/365 by the corporate MSM.
      People not only should seek out far better candidates for public office, they should by now have come to see that those that ARE served up by the MSM are precisely those that they should NOT vote for!
      Consider what would happen if voters did seek out and vote for alternative candidates in the present election “lead up”.
      First, viewership of MSM would go down — which it has.
      Second, polls would show “none of the above” increasingly “popular” leading up to the election.
      Third, if, only for the sake of argument, Joseph Kiishore were to be miraculously elected president, this would come as a complete, earth-shattering surprise to all the human beings that constitute the traditional “election apparatus”. This would NECESSARILY the the case because, by design, alternative candidates are marginalized or even completely ignored by that apparatus.
      Finally (I’ve saved the best for last), number three WILL BE THE ONE AND THE ONLY WAY THAT A TRUE ALTERNATIVE CANDIDATE FOR POTUS CAN/WILL BE ELECTED IN THE US ELECTION SYSTEM! In other words, educated people will seek out an alternative. They will, completely independently, discover Kishore or Howie Hawkins or others, study their platforms and decide that they will vote for them and then, in their 5 minutes of REAL power, they will write in, type in their names on a ballot. They’ll walk out of the polling station and be asked by a pollster who they voted for and, probably, decline to answer. Then they’ll go home thinking that their vote was wasted.
      The MSM people on the election-evening shows are not going to be talking much. “Who the hell is Joeseph Kishore?”, they’ll all be asking each other? This evening show will be very much like one which would take place if, on the very same evening, astronomers detected an approaching asteroid that was going to strike Mother Earth …. and the point of impact was going to be Washington DC.
      Can you imagine the chaos leading up the MSM’s announcement of the new, completely-unexpected POTUS? This would make Trump’s surprise election look truly mundane. Yet, again, this will be the way it happens, IF it happens. IF you and millions of other independent voters make it happen.

        Very well said Ishkabibble. If only the non-brainwashed, educated people were the majority. If only. What a different world we would be living in.

    3. Thanks, Step.
      Instead of the Joeseph Kishore asteroid becoming a surprise POTUS striking DC, think the much smaller Tulsi Gabbard asteroid. At least she already is well-known by a large percentage of US voters. She miraculously being elected would be only slightly less surprising than Kishore.
      If demented Joe does actually become the D nominee, and Bernie does what he stupidly said he would do many months ago — “support whoever is the DNC nominee” — folks should seriously consider voting for Tulsi. By hanging in there to the bitter end, and NOT endorsing a garden vegetable for POTUS, IMO, that alone would qualify her for at least serious consideration.
      Alternatively, again, vote for the person that YOU think would make the best POTUS, regardless if you think that your vote will be “wasted”. If you really think that Vegetable Joe would make a great POTUS, then vote for him (and immediately return to the mental hospital from which you must have escaped).

    4. I’m definitely with you that we must seek out alternative candidates. We must vote for someone that the War Parties are too cowardly to debate.

      I just came across this yesterday.

      They hosted a debate March 4, 2020 that included 21 candidates that don’t get to be on TV, including Libertarians, Greens, socialists, independents, and even Democrats and Republicans whose candidacy was never even acknowledged on TV. Did you know there are at least two more Democrats besides Tulsi Gabbard that are still running, while the media act as if they don’t exist?
      I watched the 2nd round, with nine candidates, including Howie Hawkins of the Green Party (my favorite so far). I like Gloria La Riva from one of the socialist parties too. Did you know she’s running with political prisoner Leonard Peltier as her VP? Badass. I wonder if Chelsea Manning would be interested in running as someone’s VP while in prison.

      The 2nd round video is here:
      It’s 4 hours, with introductions at the beginning that include candidates from the 1st round; the best part was the question at 2:55:00 on presidential pardons for political prisoners such as Julian Assange.

      I’m annoyed that not one of my independent media favorites mentioned this. Democracy Now! hosted a debate with alternative candidates that were shut out of the TV pretend-debates, I think in 2008 and 2012, but not since then.

      1. Thanks for those links!

  24. It proves once and for all that the American President is merely a figurehead. It matters not if that head is full of discordant and disjointed thoughts.

    1. No, it doesn’t. What it proves is that the US ruling class is at the end of its rope. Even if the President is only a master of ceremonies or a maitre d’, he or she still needs to function at at least a basic level to keep things running. The r.c. could not prevent a malign clown like Trump from the highest office; now, apparently, they want to insert an even worse case.

    To this day, WW2-era media are praised for their “decency/patriotism” in downplaying/erasing the physical challenges of capitalism preserver, incestuous adulterer, Pearl Harbor attack enabling traitor, Franklin Roosevelt; because publishing photographs of his leg braces would have handed victory to the Axis. Having said that, overcoming god-given disabilities to create an empire is more remarkworthy than if he’d been normable-bodied. Perhaps history will treat the current MSM blackout on Joe Biden’s dementia in a similar fashion. Plenty of cable/NYT/WaPo-subscribing NPR/PBS/TYT-donating sheeple will be voting against Corn Pop, no matter who, in 2020; because neo-McCarthyite TDS russophobia is all too real. Unfortunately, pesky human rights extremists have already claimed the “BDS” acronym for their own selfish enterprise: anti-semitism!

      To this day in Australia, twice every year, there are ceremonies attended by politicians, that glorify war. They honor the men and women who died in those wars. The official speakers never dare to mention that we sent 87,000 young men to their deaths simply so the rich assholes of Europe could stay rich. Once again it was the treasonous media who convinced young Australian men that they could not consider themselves men unless they sacrificed themselves on the British royal family’s filthy, disgusting, blood soaked altar.

  26. “Nobody “appoints” senators; they’re elected.” Actually, when there is a vacancy in the U.S. Senate (such as when the Senator becomes President, or dies, or resigns for any reason), the Governor of that Senator’s state appoints a replacement, who later, of course, can run for the office with the advantages of incumbency. However, it is true that Presidents do NOT appoint U.S. Senators.

  27. I pay little attention to candidates, they are after all sociopaths, but even in my very limited observation its obvious this particular sociopath has far greater mental problems as well. How in a sane world could any sane person vote for this guy as dog catcher, much less commander in chief of nuclear weapons?

  30. Beau Biden’s Iraq War service may very well have led to his developing brain cancer. Exposure to burn pits in that country has been linked to a number of illnesses, including brain cancer. (Have to post this fast because your site keeps crashing my computer.)

    Here’s a list of stories/videos about the problem:

    A couple of the links in that list:

    Here’s Biden speaking of his son’s death and his exposure to burn pits:

    I don’t know if it’s related but it seems as if Joe’s mental decline accelerated after Beau’s death. Biden was never my candidate as he’s been wrong on so many issues but I wish his family would do so much more to protect him.

  31. The idea is to get Joe Biden elected with – SURPRISE! – Hillary Clinton as running mate. Guess who gets to take over mid-term as the dementia increases.

  33. …..meanwhile here in Australia we are facing a much more serious issue, toilet paper sales are being restricted to between one to four packets per transaction, depending from which store you’re buying it from! If you are planning to visit Australia, don’t forget to bring your own!

  34. Have to hand it to the Iraq War veteran for telling it like it is. And of course support for that crime against humanity is just one of many things lying Biden tries to “rewrite”. More recently, as a prominent point man for the fascist coup in Ukraine, responsibility for blood spilled in Donbass is also on his hands. He also took personal advantage of concocted corruption in Ukraine—and if all that isn’t bad enough— the fascist coup in Ukraine is part of a dangerous at-their-doorstep antagonism towards Russia that threatens us all.
    Biden’s career support for right-wing polices at home is consistent with his support for right-wing policies in Latin America as well. In short, he’s not a nice guy (putting it politely).

    1. Joe Biden was known earlier in his career as “The Senator from MasterCard.” At the time, that was not a compliment.
      But of course, in the new Democratic Party that celebrates Wall St and the original bankers-tool (Hamilton), being called the Senator from MasterCard would be considered the highest of honors bestowed by wannabee war-criminals.

  35. It’s not just the dementia. Biden seems to have a history of having a hard time telling the truth…….

    Oh, my! I had heard and seen snippets of several of these examples, but it all takes on a different perspective when seen like this. Thank you, Caitlin, for compiling these examples for us.
    I firmly believe, and this may seem to be a conspiracy theory, that the DNC is hoping to get Biden nominated so he can ask Hillary Clinton to run as his running mate. If elected, he would certainly resign quickly, for “health” reasons, thereby putting Hillary Clinton in the White House. Sadly for Joe, he may not be able to endure the pressures of the campaign long enough to let the DNC do its dirty work.

    1. i think warren is hoping for the same scenario, with warren as vp. but once again clinton will stab her in the back.

      1. I love the way the Trump propaganda machine can’t stop with this Hillary nonsense. I hate to be the bearer of bad news to the Trumper Thumpers, but they won’t be running against Hillary this time under any circumstances.

        1. hey dufus, i’m a sanders supporter. the reason people don’t stop worrying about clinton is she still has vast influence over the political machine. running against demented joe or corrupt clinton, trump wins again. sanders is by far the best choice on policies, and the only candidate remainging who can beat trump.
          now tell me i’m a russian bot, and my day will be complete, and you will make a quarter from correct the record, or maybe a dollar from bloomberg.

  37. Hey, you know who’s a real doctor? Dr. Jill Stein. Yesterday she tweeted:

    “Media gave Biden $100M in free positive coverage in lead-up to #SuperTuesday – covering for Joe’s lies about his civil rights history, obvious cognitive decline, & vulnerable record of siding w/ powerful over the people. US corp media is world’s most effective propaganda machine.”

    (Jill Stein is also a member of Doctors for Assange, because of course she is.)

    1. Its a shame the Greens have already made a deal with the Dems and have thrown in the towel and won’t be running a credible alternative candidate this time around. I’d vote for Dr. Stein, again. I’ve done so in the past.
      Instead, their deal with the Dems has them staying clear of the race. The now typical, non-challenging “safe states” campaign is morphing into a “safe nation” strategy where they will not run strongly in any nation where fascism can be under threat.

      1. I have no idea why you think that. Greens are gathering signatures to try and get on the ballot in all 50 states.
        Check on the status of your state here:

        Green presidential candidate Howie Hawkins responded forcefully to the odious open letter that told Greens to stop campaigning in some states.

        It seems like yet another disinformation campaign has been launched to cause people to believe that only Democrats and Republicans are running. I feel this is one of the most insidious of the election crimes. There are so many good, honest candidates who never stand a chance because voters are ignorant of their existence.

  38. The most telling was his forgetting Obama’s name….”President….my boss…” Wish you had included it.

    I only listen to NPR as oppo research, because my brainwashed, high horse-riding, neoliberal-loving, ivy league-indoctrinated, TDS-having relatives swear by (and donate to) them. On the radio today, they were mourning the loss of Elizabeth Warren’s candidacy (SEXISM!). In less than two minutes, a headline grudgingly pronounced “Tulsi Gabbard” when naming the three remaining Democrat party candidates, before the next guest declared authoritatively that the final woman had left the contest. They’re sponsored by government, Koch brother, big data, big oil, big bank, big drug, big weapon; yet, somehow, they depend on support from listeners like you. Donate your junk car and feel good about yourself!

  40. I knew someone before and after dementia, and one of the symptoms was a loss of social appropriateness, like calling someone “fat” instead of just thinking it. Also some childlike fidgeting developed, similar to biting at someone’s finger. How long has Biden been sniffing kids’ hair in public?

  41. Politics is irrelevant and will not change anything. Readers know that the same old oligarchy will continue to rule the USA with financial clout from Big Business and Big Money will provide new puppets to entertain the masses. Exposing this political theatre is the first step in the right direction, but not enough to defeat the evil empire. People who vote are simply playing along with the farce.

    Caitlin, which heroes from outside the political theatre do you recommend we look to for leadership? Dissidents should study, understand and collectively put into practice the revolutionary strategy and tactics which Yeshua trained His Ambassadors to teach and practice. Unfortunately, His revolutionary strategy and tactics are so brilliant, exceptional and powerful that this is way above the mental abilities even for highly intelligent and well-educated people who fail to grasp what Yeshua said and meant. Read more of this here:

  42. He tells lies that are easily proven false, like the BS about being arrested in South Africa. He has claimed his first wife and daughter were killed by a drunk driver, even though the police report showed his wife caused the accident.
    I don’t know if this is a cognitive defect or a moral one. Probably both.

  43. He tells lies that can easily be proven false, like the BS about being arrested in South Africa.

      does his propensity for lying remind you of someone?

      1. Obama, Clinton, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Brian Williams, Rachel Maddow, John Brennan, everyone on CNN, the vast majority of Congress, and yes, Trump.

      2. these may not even be lies, a dementia patient could easily believe them to be the truth. give joe biden the nuclear launch codes, i’m sure he will handle the responsibility wisely!

  44. Hving worked in a mental hospital and having observed old people’s thinking going downhill very, very fast, I see Joe quite possibly not keeping his marbles in place until November. However, he may actually make it that long and maybe even get elected . Then he’d have to keep his marbles in place until late January. IF does actually get a brain-fix from Jesus until he actually takes the oath of office, IMO there is no way that his brain is going to remain even somewhat intact until November 2024.
    Therefore, are you a Joe-Biden lookalike? If so, you might want to immediately submit your photo and resume to the “elect Joe Biden” campaign. Here’s why.

  45. Inexorably comes the time when he will realize how diminished his capacities have become…bits of that show in the anger of his responses. Shame on his userous handlers for their willful ignorance of his more biological.

  46. Okay, so he’s senile, but the most important thing is: he’s a progressive, moderate, centrist geriatric, a fossil who still understands, however dimly, the importance of everlasting war, drone murders, coups, etc, toward creating more and more enemies everywhere to justify burgeoning military-surveillance debt. This, and the sacred independence of the Criminal Reserve Cartel are vital to true prosperity. Anyway why worry? His shrewd new puppeteer-patron, Scroogeberg, will be right behind the throne. Biden will be his compliant fogey, with a winsome smile, a great toothy smile to rival that of the great Hopey-Changey Charlatan himself, the Messiah who taught us the supreme importance of sincerity in all things; if you can fake that, you’ve got it made.

  47. I’m convinced that Bernie is too mentality stable and honest to be an American President.

    1. Absolutely. Those qualities disqualify him, particularly honesty. Most voters have become so used to the BS and lies, that they become suspicious of someone who they think is telling the truth – worrying that he/she is pulling a fast one on them. The ultimate irony is that they ‘trust’ the dishonest politicians more than the honest ones (not enough of these, sadly). After 3 years of conditioning by Trump, American voters will probably be quite happy with the idiot Biden – and as one commenter here suggested, Biden might pick Hilary Clinton as his running mate, and then resign once in office thereby making her president. Could be a devious DNC plot to get her into the White House through the back door.

    Trump has virtually all of the symptoms you listed for dementia, as well as motor symptoms that seem to go unnoticed.

    1. Yes; he slurs when he talks; he sounds drunk.

    2. You’ve got to hand it to the demented Tangerine Jackass. He knows what impresses his equally deluded supporters.

    3. The “we” have the President of the United States of America honoring? a dog in the Rose Garden of the White House. It was this event that proved to me that the present POTUS is, to put it scientifically, out of his fucking mind.

    4. he may be on uppers and downers. he is nowhere near biden’s record of dementia. but clearly sanders is by far the candidate with all his marbles, which is one reason the dnc doesn’t want him.

    When someone makes all the decisions for you, you can be senile. My best example is Reagan. By his second term he was asking his wife for his astrology forecast at breakfast. Meanwhile, GHW Bush and his CIA allies in the government, including William Barr who did his best to not get anyone indicted, and Robert Mueller, who made sure that no higher ups in the government, spook or asset, got convicted. This, while LIBERAL Kerry “investigated” Iran-contra from the Senate. Kerry, who was on the same lacrosse team as Robert Mueller in private school and who was in Skull and Bones, which has long been part of the Bush plantation, churning out Deep State Corridor of Power faces for ruling us. That is our political system. If Sanders can be defeated, then the machine can continue to grind us up and spit us out.

  50. What is almost as appalling as Biden’s deficiencies is the audience reaction or non-reaction. Are any of these people actually listening to the gibberish? Are their brains automatically making bridges, assumptions, filling in the gaps to try to understand what Biden might actually mean? Can this be done when there’s nothing there to begin with? I wonder. Is this a numbing of the mind? If the people watching don’t GET that something is wrong, what does that say about our individual and collective ability to reason. We are a strange species.

      People who are dim-witted enough to even be at a meeting to support Joe Biden most likely think that what he is saying is intelligent, sophisticated and coherent. If he could string the words together to recite the Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale to his audience, they would clap and cheer and vote for him.

  51. Good point.

    It’ definitely possible. She called Tulsi Gabbard and Jill Stein “Russian assets” and has recently been increasingly attacking Bernie.

    And CNNDNC and MSNDNC are in lock step. I waiting for Rachel MadDog at MSNBC to explain that Putin controls Trump and Bernie and has poisoned Biden with a dementia-causing version of novichock.

  52. When it comes to applying for the job of POTUS, dementia is apparently a qualification.

      That is quite shocking. Even without a teleprompter I thought Obama would be articulate enough not to stumble in conversation. Do you think there is a jumbling frequency being beamed into his brain during those moments?

      1. O’bomb’em was a teleprompter virtuoso who was nothing but a presidential rubber stamp of the (Deep) State Department. When those teleprompters failed, O’bomb’em was like a virtuoso violinist without a violin. Because he did not write what was written on his teleprompters (likely incapable of it), and likely did not rehearse before his “speeches”, he was completely lost when his “instrument” failed. This performance was the REAL O’bomb’em speaking to AmeriKKKa. Shocking to those who thought he was a genius.
        While I’m typing, I hope average people watched the testimonies of Vindman, Ford, Yovanovich etc. during the so-called impeachment inquiry. These people were/are the “working edge” of the sword of the Deep State. I’m not going to repeat their testimony, but suffice it to say that Ukraine is being used by the Deep State as what they hope will be a Forward Operating Base of an attack on Russia. O’bomb’em and Biden and underlings managed and put the presidential rubber stamp on the coup in Ukraine that allowed that to happen.
        O’bomb’em was awarded the Nobel peace prize for being black and, from that point on, he murdered people with drones, bombs, starvation sanctions, etc. Like all the previous holder of that office, he was a good boy who did what he was told.
        In short, JFK had an independent streak and this is why the CIA murdered him. This is not to say that JFK was not a typical Liar and Murderer In Chief; just that he had to be eliminated for resisting some CIA diktat over Cuba, ordering the treasury to issue money rather than the Fed, and threatening to neuter the CIA.

            What a mistake!!! I thought the old man was Joe Biden!

        2. For clarity’s sake, I’ll post something I wrote elsewhere about 2 years ago. And full disclosure: until my vote for Jill Stein in ‘16 I had been a lifelong old-fashioned labor lefty who supported the Democratic Party. I enthusiastically gave Obama my vote in ‘08 and then foolishly held my nose in giving him another go round in ‘12 even though my personal process of disillusionment was well underway.
          Bankers make out like bandits while struggling homeowners, students, and workers feel the shaft.
          Accountability and “transparency” take on decidedly Orwellian meanings as “classification” becomes even more routine and honest whistleblowers are chilled to the bone.
          The National Security State becomes more deeply entrenched as the Constitution is whittled away, surveillance becomes ubiquitous, extrajudicial drone killings multiply, and dubious “terror” threats or “”attacks” make headline news.
          Actual healthcare reform is sideswiped by the Obamacare quarter-measures that put off real needed change indefinitely.
          The carnage of perpetual dirty wars continues unabated. What was done in Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Yemen under the watch of Obama and his cackling miscreant of a Secretary of State is beyond abominable.
          Ukraine gets a coup…and Russia is senselessly demonized, sanctioned, and threatened. Obama kicks out diplomats and says stupid things about Russia.
          The intelligence agencies become extraordinarily politicized while Obama pokes holes in necessary NSA filters and sets up an agency to combat “fake news” (a war on information and freedom of speech).
          The Democratic Party gets a real knack for losing….but become the world’s worst sore losers and worst opposition party imaginable when their Queen of Chaos is denied her throne.

          I’d say we need an anti-Obama. Trump may be different…but he’s certainly not different enough.

          Thanks Obama…what a fine legacy!

            It wasn’t just you Gregory, nearly the whole world was sucked in by Obama in 2008. We actually believed what a candidate for the presidency was saying! What a mighty slap in the face we received from the rulers of the empire!

            1. Yep. The slap felt round the world.

            2. I think I disdain Obomber so much because he betrayed us all with his false promises. I loathed McStain & Mittens too, but they were known quantities.

  53. The DNC reminds me of the Stalinist Central Committee in the Soviet Union, which “democratically” selected the leader: The DNC is the Central Committee of Wall Street and the military industrial complex.

    I guess you have seen the clip where Biden says “You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier” to a young supporter.

    I have a song for you to the tune of “Ruby Tuesday”. You probably know this song from The Rolling Stones:.

    But this is my version of it,

    Super Tuesday

    He would never say where he came from
    Yesterday don’t matter if it’s gone
    CNN is right
    For Joe they’re gonna fight
    Bernie knows, he’ll catch their blows

    Joe Biden’s Super Tuesday
    He’s gonna hang a name on you
    “Lying dog-faced pony soldier”
    Noone’s gonna miss you, Joe

    Don’t question why he has to lie so free
    He’ll tell you it’s the only way to be
    He’s just quite insane
    And doesn’t have a brain
    His mind is lost, at such a cost

    Joe Biden’s Super Tuesday
    Wall Street’s answer in plain view?
    Brand new claims with every new day
    Noone’s gonna miss you, Joe

    “There’s no room for views, ” I heard him say
    I’ll steal your votes and make them slip away
    Lying all the time…
    If you really knew him, you’d lose your mind.
    Yes, life’s unkind.

    Goodbye Central Committee

      Genius! As a hard core fan of the early Rolling Stones, I gotta love this!

      1. Yes, I loved the Stones. I am 65, so too young to have watched their early years live with Brian Jones, but I was around when they had Mick Taylor on board.

        I know most of what is going on, but since there are so many eloquent posters on this thread who can articulate their knowledge about what is really going on, I think my only worthwhile contribution can be creative – and I would be happy if anyone used my creative input (it’s my contribution to hopefully some kind of objectivity, if not sanity, returning to this planet). So you are all welcome to sing my songs.

        I am an English guy, who has lived in Germany for over 40 years, and became a German citizen when Britain decided that it was no longer part of Europe, but rather a US poodle.

        I also wrote a song about that, basically a satirical view of Britain in search of its lost empire and me living in “Good old Germany”,. which is of course not perfect either.
        I just happen to have lived here happliy for over 40 years, so I wasn’t exactly interested in returning to the core of the failed British Empire because of the Brexit.
        I think music and humour are important to survival.
        It is not meant as an objective political analysis but more humour and ridicule for a would be imperial nation that clings to the coattails of the USA to retain the illusion of being an imperial power.
        This is a home recording with a German friend, who plays all the musical instruments.

  56. Biden, or Bernie….it matters not, which octogenarian is at the top of the DNC/DINO ticket. The crooked smoke filled room will select their VP puppet and we will get a repeat of a 120 year old plutocrat trick. Rockefeller forced his cousin Teddy onto the McKinley ticket, then promptly had Teddy “shot” into the presidency in 1901. Here’s a satire, based on true history, written while Willard the Bain Bandit had Ron Paul delegates locked out of the 2012 RNC coronation.

    “Running Joe Biden for president is like making your dog wear a dress,” Carlson deadpanned. “It may make for an amusing Instagram post, but it’s wrong. You can see the confusion in the dog’s eyes.” …
    “Today, both Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar endorsed Biden. So did former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Beto O’Rourke,” Carlson said. “These are party people doing the bidding of their corporate masters. There’s nothing warm or sentimental about it. They’re pushing a defective product on consumers and they know it. They’re selling lawn darts.”
    Carlson believes the threat from Sanders is about “institutional control.”
    “The Biden campaign isn’t about ideas, much less ideals. The Democratic establishment’s only concern is institutional control,” Carlson said. “That’s where all of their power comes from. From holding together and running things. If the Democratic coalition breaks down, they are by definition powerless.”
