They lied when they told us Donald Trump was an agent of Vladimir Putin.  They lied when, ahead of the 2020 election, they maintained that Hunter Biden’s laptop was “Russian disinformation.”  They lied when they told us Trump called Nazis and white supremacists “fine people” and was himself a veritable incarnation of Herr Fuehrer (they’re still doing that; see elsewhere in today’s newsletter.)  They lied when they said Trump tried to lead an insurrection on January 6, threatening the very future of democracy with an unarmed, ragtag group --- never mind that he had authorized 10,000 National Guard to keep things from getting out of hand.  (I think we know now who has trouble relinquishing power, and it’s Biden.)  They lied when they said Trump told people to drink bleach to cure their COVID.  They lied when they said Trump refused to attend a service for fallen soldiers they claimed he called “suckers and losers.”

These are just a few of the many easily discredited hoaxes that anti-Trump Democrats (plus a few RINOS), the media and members of the “permanent bureaucracy” (but I repeat myself), have told us over the past, oh, eight or nine years.  But as outrageous as these lies are --- and they’ve all been furthered by Biden himself --- they’re all dwarfed by the most monstrous fabrication of all, the one that’s finally unraveled:  that Joe Biden has been functioning at normal cognitive capacity as our Commander-In-Chief.

Even before the debate debacle, a majority of Americans could see we were being gaslighted about this.  We predicted for weeks that the debate wouldn’t even happen --- because it COULDN’T happen, because Biden simply wasn’t capable of handling it and he would crash and burn.  If the debate did happen, we said, it would have to have been arranged as a set-up to deliberately LET him crash and burn, because DNC leaders knew they’d reached the time to start maneuvering a new nominee into place.  And it appears that’s the way they’re playing it.

Years ago, even as we wondered during the 2020 campaign about the actual abilities of the stiff, basement-bound Biden, we hesitated to use the word “dementia.”  It takes a doctor, a neuropathologist, to diagnose brain disease, and there are a number of different types of dementia.  But as serious symptoms of senility began cropping up more and more frequently, the White House continued dodging and (we know now) just flat-out lying.  Calls for President Biden to take a cognitive test grew louder, and all he would’ve had to do to quiet those calls was take one.  President Trump has already done this a couple of times.

The only catch:  Biden would have to pass it.

Then came the shock of the debate on June 27, and its aftermath.  (And, boy, did we pick a heckuva time to go on vacation.)  Elsewhere in the newsletter, you’ll see a “gaslighting round-up” of the lame attempts at cover-up.  But by now it’s clear, our government has been telling us the most monstrous lie in memory:  that we had a Commander-In-Chief who was capable of serving when we DID NOT. 

So, what’s the real story that they kept under wraps as long as they could?  Karine Jean-Pierre has dodged questions concerning whether Biden saw a doctor after his brain fizzled during the debate, but the NY POST reports that according to visitor logs, a top Washington DC neurologist visited the White House to meet with Biden’s personal physician earlier this year.

Actually, two outside doctors were at the January 17 meeting, neurologist and 20-year Parkinson’s specialist Dr. Kevin Cannard of Walter Reed Medical Center, and Dr. John E. Atwood, a cardiac specialist also from Walter Reed.  (A fourth person at the meeting has so far not been identified.)  Since 2012, Dr. Cannard has served as the neurology specialist supporting the White House Medical Unit.

Rep. Ronny Jackson of Texas, personal physician to both Presidents Obama and Trump, told the NY POST that since the President’s health is Dr. O’Connor’s primary responsibility --- he treats only the President and the First Family --- it is “highly likely they were talking about Biden.”  Dr. O’Connor is in daily contact with President Biden and has been his physician since January 2021.

In February, Dr. O’Connor gave Biden a clean bill of health at his annual physical exam (he declared Biden “fit to serve,” something I wonder if we could say about Dr. O’Connor.)  As the NY POST reports, O’Connor said at the time that the physical included a neurological exam that specifically ruled out Parkinson’s Disease.

But Jackson, who has not treated Biden, has for years seen signs of Biden’s cognitive decline and remains concerned that Dr. O’Connor, along with the President’s family, is trying to cover up Biden’s diminishing abilities.  After the disastrous debate, he urged Biden to resign.

The NY POST also spoke with Dr. Rob Howard, professor of old age psychiatry at University College London, who likewise has not treated Biden and is not offering a formal diagnosis but has noticed the President’s “fluctuation in attentional function, his facial appearance, and his gait,” which he says are all consistent with Parkinson’s Disease.

Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall, who is also a physician, told the POST that “many” in the medical community have “suspected for several years that the President might be suffering from Parkinson’s Disease.”

While Dr. O’Connor said Biden hadn’t been found to have Parkinson’s, he didn’t mention any of the other “Parkinsonian” diseases that fall under the same umbrella, such as Lewy Body Dementia.  If you’ve wondered what was going on in Biden’s head when he went to shake the hand of someone who wasn’t there, or acknowledged people in his audience who weren’t there (“There’s Barack!”), this movement has struck some neurologists as a sign Biden is hallucinating, which is a hallmark of Lewy Body.

Since a number of neurologists have expressed suspicions about this, we went to the Mayo Clinic online to see if they’re noticing the same things we do.  (Again, only a team of neurological specialists who have actually treated the patient can formally diagnose anyone.)  Apparently, the hallucinating is one of the earliest symptoms of Lewy Body.   Hallucinations can involve not only sight but smells, touch and sounds.  (Perhaps Biden really did hear Trump “shouting” at him during the debate.)  Accompanying movement disorders include slowed movement, rigid muscles, tremor or a shuffling walk, which increases the risk of falls.

Cognitive problems are similar to those caused by Alzheimer’s Disease, including confusion, poor attention (including periods of staring into space), visual-spatial problems and memory loss.  Also typical are episodes of drowsiness, long naps during the day and disorganized speech.  More here...

Here’s another neuropathologist who’ll speak only anonymously (as he’s in academia) in a note to journalist Emily Yoffe at THE FREE PRESS and reproduced by Bari Weiss on X.

As reported by Alex Berenson, Dr. Cannard, the neurologist who saw Biden in January, has visited the White House at least NINE TIMES in the past year, and once before that.  Yoffe observes, “If Cannard is treating Biden, then the President has some explaining to do.”

“If this neurologist has diagnosed and is treating Biden for a form of Parkinsonism --- and this has been covered up --- that’s a medical and political scandal,” Yoffe says.

An emeritus professor of neurology told THE FREE PRESS that “he believes Biden has Parkinsonism, an umbrella term that refers to neurologic conditions that cause slowed movements, rigidity and tremors.  By observation, he has a masked face, reduced blinking, stiff and slow gait, hunched posture, low-volume voice, imbalance, freezing, mild cognitive disturbance, and difficulty turning.”

From another neurologist: “All the disturbing symptoms we all see are called fact, in medical schools we watch videos of patients with Parkinsonism like Biden to illustrate to the students how this manifests.”

So we’re back to where we started, with one more huge lie to place on the mountain of whoppers we’ve been told by Democrats.  This one’s the big rancid cherry on top.  If this is what we get from the so-called “democracy” Trump is allegedly “threatening,” he can only improve it, because with this level of transparency, what we have now is essentially a worthless, stinking pile of garbage.

The electorate is constantly lied to by this party, about the most consequential things imaginable.  Their political machinations put our country in peril.  They deserve no one’s confidence and no one’s vote.

RELATED READING:  Josh Hammer at feels just the same way.  “For years,” he says, “Democrats and the corporate media lied through their teeth about the blatant decline of the President’s physical and mental faculties.”  NEVER forgive them.

Democrats do have a history of this.  On at least three other occasions, top White House staffers and family members have participated in massive cover-ups to hide the physical disabilities and illnesses of three Democrat Presidents:  Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy.

It seems they’ll never change.
