Does Joe Biden have Dementia, Like all Dumo-rats? And, Yes, It Matters! By Charles Taylor

     Having a senile old man with his finger on the nuclear button, that was the scare campaign driven by the Democrats in their dirty tricks department against Donald Trump in 2016. Well, Biden so clearly has unending senior moments, that these are stunningly embarrassing, like saying that only Donald Trump can be elected, forgetting his own name, and so on:

     This would be presidential rule from the nursing home, which is to say that the Deep State will have their other man, or woman, there pushing America further than anyone has gone before. Hello Hillary 2.0! Biden’s mental state is taboo in the mainstream press, just like the crimes of the Clintons:

“Early Wednesday morning, Forbes published a piece titled, “Does Joe Biden Have Dementia? Does It Matter?” by senior contributor Elizabeth Bauer. But the business magazine subsequently removed it from its website, hiding it from readers. According to a cached version, Bauer highlighted several examples of pundits referencing Biden’s strange behavior, and explained the makeup of a Cognitive Assessment: the test … is meant for a specific objective: screening individuals for dementia or mild cognitive impairment. It consists of tasks such as drawing a clock face, naming animals based on line drawings, reciting a set of numbers forwards and backwards, listing as many words as you can think of that start with the letter “f,” and similar questions, for a total of 30 points, with 26 points required to “pass” the screening, and a lower cut-off differentiating between mild cognitive impairment and dementia itself. Bauer said the questions would be “trivial” to a person who is unimpaired: These are not “trick questions”; it’s not an IQ test nor is it designed to ferret out nuances. But if a person really does have impairment, the test really will identify it. She then argued Biden should take the test to put the theories and criticisms to rest: Which means that, yes, if Biden’s gaffes and his outbursts are just “Biden being Biden,” then there should be an easy enough answer: Biden could take the screening test just as easily as Trump did, and just as easily pass it, and then everyone can just shut up about the issue — unless, that is, the claims of Republicans that he has been pushed and manipulated into this election against his own best interest, and he’d be better off having stayed in retirement, are actually well-founded. Hours later, the column was covered up by an Editor’s Note, which read, “This page is no longer active. We regret any inconvenience.” Bauer’s text behind the message was faintly visible.”

     Good work censoring this Forbes, as now we are all interested, and there is a cached version available, because, well, it is the age of the internet, isn’t it?

“It becomes increasing probable that Biden will be the Democratic nominee for president. And at the same time, among Republicans, at any rate, speculation continues that, as is the case for about 10% of Americans within his age range, Biden is impaired with dementia. Here’s Roger Kimball writing at The Spectator’s US edition:  “Some people dismiss evidence of Biden’s incapacity as just a matter of ‘gaffes’, little mental hiccups of no consequence. They aren’t ‘gaffes’, i.e., simple mistakes. They are tokens of serious mental incapacity. Judge for yourself. Here’s Biden from a couple of weeks ago announcing that he is running for the US Senate (ah, the good old days). “Or how about his claim that ‘150 million’ Americans have been killed by guns since 2007? Or here he is trying to get his mind (and his mouth) around the Declaration of Independence: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: all men and women are created, by the, you know the, you know the thing.’” Donald Trump, Jr., went further: “’From the Alzheimers association webpage 'Aggressive or angry behaviors may occur in people with Alzheimer's or other dementias,’ the president's eldest son said Tuesday on Twitter in response to a video of Biden berating a Michigan man. ‘A 50 year career politician doesn't snap back this way to a blue collar guy asking him a reasonable question given his parties stance on the issue.’"

  And Victor David Hansen, writing at National Review, observes:

“The problem is that we have never before witnessed a major party’s likely candidate who so early in the race seems unable to meet the grueling demands of the spring, summer, and fall campaign trail, much less the anticipated duties of president — especially from the party who insisted so loudly that Trump was non compos mentis that it apparently prompted the president to take the Montreal Cognitive Assessment screening test, which he aced, but which a current Joe Biden might well not be able to ace if similarly accused of being mentally unfit and removable via the 25th Amendment.” And to take a step back, Trump did indeed “ace” the Montreal Cognitive Assessment screening test back in 2018. At the time, this produced triumphant reactions from some; others declared that this test would not pick up on nuances of mental decline or the bigger picture of whether Trump is fit to serve as president. And the Montreal screening is hardly the sort of test that identifies how clever one is, or how much wisdom one has, of the sort that might come in handy in managing, well, just about anything a president has to manage. But the test (which is no longer easily available online for copyright reasons, but described in detail at VeryWellHealth and with a partial image at The Guardian) is meant for a specific objective: screening individuals for dementia or mild cognitive impairment. It consists of tasks such as drawing a clock face, naming animals based on line drawings, reciting a set of numbers forwards and backwards, listing as many words as you can think of that start with the letter “f,” and similar questions, for a total of 30 points, with 26 points required to “pass” the screening, and a lower cut-off differentiating between mild cognitive impairment and dementia itself.

And — folks, this is where I’ll take off the journalist hat for just a moment: I have watched someone take this test. To a cognitively unimpaired person, the questions seem trivial. But the individual that I watched take this screening could not answer questions that to an unimpaired person would seem obvious. These are not “trick questions”; it’s not an IQ test nor is it designed to ferret out nuances. But if a person really does have impairment, the test really will identify it. Which means that, yes, if Biden’s gaffes and his outbursts are just “Biden being Biden,” then there should be an easy enough answer: Biden could take the screening test just as easily as Trump did, and just as easily pass it, and then everyone can just shut up about the issue — unless, that is, the claims of Republicans that he has been pushed and manipulated into this election against his own best interest, and he’d be better off having stayed in retirement, are actually well-founded. But — to address the second question in my title — I’m not sure that it matters to voters, many of whom, near as I can tell, simply see Biden as a placeholder for a moderate Democrat and are willing to case their vote even knowing that his age alone creates a fair probability that he won’t finish out his term.”

     Of course, Biden will not finish his term, for he is likely to be replaced quite quickly by his running mate, who may well be Hillary Clinton, or one of the clones. The Deepers are hell bent on war with Russia, having a death wish. Oh well, bring on Armageddon, at least it will be over quick, unlike the present daily death by a thousand cuts!
