BREAKING — Overwhelming video evidence of Joe Biden’s dementia symptoms

Biden’s defenders are aggressively attributing Joe’s speaking gaffs to a “speech impediment”.

“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. … 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. … Anyone who wants Trump out of office should fiercely oppose Biden’s nomination. … I’ll probably keep this updated with all the latest neurological misfirings until this discussion goes mainstream like it should already be.”Caitlin Johnstone

Caitlin Johnstone is a resident of Australia, and she’s not American. She writes about US politics because “…that’s where the head of the beast is.”

Speaking personally, although I find the video evidence compelling and not easily dismissed, I would feel much more comfortable if these “allegations” of Joe Biden’s dementia were clinically confirmed. Bottom line, Caitlin’s collection and publication of the evidence is too important to be ignored.

If the evidence does turn out to be reliable and valid, the leaders of the Democratic Party will have much to answer for.

Below is my abridged repost of Caitlin Johnstone’s piece, with my added subheadings, text highlighting and other minor changes. For example, I have reposted just 13 of Caitlin’s 38 videos. And I have not yet watched/read all 38.

Stop Calling It A “Stutter” :  Here Are Dozens Of Examples Of Biden’s Dementia Symptoms by Caitlin Johnstone, catilinjohnstone.com, March 5, 2020

Dems likely to face mounting criticism for backing dementia-muddled Biden as their presidential candidate

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.

Can political convictions of a cognitively crippled Biden be taken seriously?

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.

The fact is obvious and undeniable – Biden is exhibiting symptoms of incipient dementia

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.

Biden’s defenders are aggressively attributing Joe’s speaking slipups to a “speech impediment”

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.

But Biden’s memory lapses, language stumbles, and inappropriate behavior are not symptoms of a “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.

Checklist of symptoms for 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

Checklist of symptoms for dementia

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.

Trump will not hesitate to exploit Biden’s incipient dementia

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 — President Trump makes fun of “Sleepy Joe” —

 

What follows are dozens of examples suggesting the latter, most of which were compiled by the Twitter user @KoenSwinkels.

Trump will be far less charitable with his [Biden’s] 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.

[THE VIDEO EVIDENCE OF JOE BIDEN’S ALLEDGED NEUROLOGICAL DISORDER]

[In her article, Caitlin Johnstone presents 38 symptomatic examples of Biden’s neurological disorder that have been captured on video. I have reposted a sample of 13, being careful to retain Johnstone’s numbering order. To see all 38, go to her website].

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

DID JOE BIDEN REALLY SAY THIS?! You Tube September 13, 2019

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.”

[Transcript]

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.”

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.

  1. What to make of 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:

[Note: Caitlin includes an iPhone twitter video with the following text. To watch the video, go to her website by clicking on: Stop Calling It A “Stutter” :  Here Are Dozens Of Examples Of Biden’s Dementia Symptoms]

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?”

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.
