“You will not beat Donald Trump by telling them they’re imagining symptoms of dementia that are clearly and unquestionably there.”

“Ummmm… so, like, are you guys really going to do this Joe Biden thing? Like, for real? Because, you know, far be it from us to ever interfere in your electoral process, perish the thought please don’t sanction us. But we couldn’t help but notice that you appear to be getting ready to run an actual, literal dementia victim against the current occupant of the White House, who actually seems quite delighted about the matter. … If you allow the Democratic Party to successfully install Biden as the nominee, your lovely president is going to make sure his undeniable signs of cognitive decline dominate all news headlines every single day until November. That will happen. … This isn’t going to work, America. You will not be able to beat Donald Trump by telling them that they are imagining signs and symptoms of dementia that are clearly and unquestionably there… Please do whatever you need to do to stop this nonsense and ensure that Donald Trump winds up running against someone who can, at the very least, string sentences together to form complete thoughts.” —Caitlin Johnstone
Following up on her previous article, BREAKING — Overwhelming video evidence of Joe Biden’s dementia symptoms , Caitlin Johnstone, an Australian, who writes about US politics, returns with another blistering piece about Biden, Trump and US politics — this time in the form of a letter addressed directly to Americans. She closes with this plea to America from “The rest of the world” – “Thank you and please don’t bomb us.”
Below is my lightly edited repost of Caitlin’s piece, with my added subheadings, text highlighting and other minor changes. Alternatively, to read her article and watch her video clip selections on her website, click on the following linked title.
Heyyy America! Listen up! Are you really going to do this Joe Biden thing?
Heyyy America. Rest of the world here. How’s it goin’? How are the kids? Are you still making those Marvel movies? Those are fun.
So, I know you don’t like us to bother you during an election year, but all the people in all the other countries in the world have been talking, and there’s just one teensy, weensy issue we wanted to chat with you about, if you don’t mind.
Ummmm… so, like, are you guys really going to do this Joe Biden thing? Like, for real?
Nothing would please Trump more than mocking “Sleepy Joe”, the Dem’s candidate
Because, you know, far be it from us to ever interfere in your electoral process, perish the thought please don’t sanction us. But we couldn’t help but notice that you appear to be getting ready to run an actual, literal dementia victim against the current occupant of the White House, who actually seems quite delighted about the matter.
Joe Biden sums up his campaign: “We cannot win this re-election. We can only re-elect Donald Trump.” You Tube, March 8, 2020
[Joe really did say this — “… and turn, turn this primary from a campaign that’s about negative attacks into one about what we’re for, because we cannot get re-elect… we cannot win this re-election… excuse me, we can only re-elect Donald Trump…”]
[After watching Biden’s latest gaff in St. Louis Missouri, followed by a video compilation of another 7 minutes of his campaigns gaffs, the announcer at Top Stories Today said: “…I doubt any sane person would believe he should be the Commander-in-Chief of the local playground sandbox.” ]
As for the rest of us, we never thought you Americans planned on four more years of Trump
Now of course we all fully support and adore your wonderful reality-TV-star president. He certainly keeps things… interesting. But we thought that maybe he would be, I don’t know, more of a phase? Like, not something you planned on doing for another four years?
Trump’s mocking of Biden’s misfirings will only get “much, much worse,” not better
Because you see how he’s already repeatedly mocking Mr Biden’s nonstop neurological misfirings? We just wanted to give you a friendly tip that there is exactly zero chance that that’s going to get better, and 100 percent certainty that it is going to get much, much worse.
So, voters of America, stop the Dems from installing Biden as your nominee
If you allow the Democratic Party to successfully install Biden as the nominee, your lovely president is going to make sure his undeniable signs of cognitive decline dominate all news headlines every single day until November. That will happen.
Video clips of Joe’s mental deterioration are surfacing on an almost a daily basis now
Trump’s attacks on Biden’s mental deterioration are going to get worse, and his dementia probably will too. New video footage of his latest episode of forgetfulness, confusion or inappropriate behavior has been surfacing on what seems a daily basis now, and that’s certainly not going to improve. One day he’s saying “Super Thursday” and forgetting Obama’s name, the next, who knows? Maybe his next stump speech will see him accused of plagiarizing the letter jumble in a bowl of alphabet soup.
And Trump is a master of manipulating the “hyper-reactive mass media”
Trump will use the bully pulpit as he always has: to manipulate the hyper-reactive mass media into talking about whatever he wants them to talk about. And what he will want them to talk about will be his opponent’s vanishing gray matter.
American, if you allow Biden to continue, Trump will ridicule Joe until he’s unelectable
He will do this constantly. He will do it until Americans are no more likely to vote for Biden than they would for someone screaming about UFOs on a street corner.
Please, America, don’t give us four more years of Trump’s climate chaos, wars, or global collapse
Please don’t do that to us, America. We just want a world that doesn’t get destroyed by climate chaos or World War 3 or the total collapse of civilization. We just want to live, dammit! We just want to live.
What about the other fellow running for president? He seems okay
What’s wrong with that other fellow running for president? The old guy who’s just trying to give you the same social safety nets we’ve all been enjoying for generations? He seems okay, and, as an added bonus, his brain isn’t committing hara-kiri inside his skull.
America, your corporate media is spinning lies about what your eyes and ears should be telling you
We can see that your media’s brilliant solution to Biden’s most obvious and glaring weakness as a candidate has been to ignore the story completely, or to tell people their eyes and ears are lying to them about what they are seeing and hearing. This Washington Monthly article that’s getting shared around a lot by imperial narrative managers, for example, decries what its headline calls “The Disinformation Campaign Being Launched Against Biden”, saying things like “There is no data to support the allegation that he is in cognitive decline” and “his doctor declared he is a ‘healthy, vigorous’ 77-year-old fully capable of taking on the role of president.” The article tries to spin people’s organic observations of unedited footage of Joe Biden struggling to maintain verbal and behavioral cohesion as some sort of coordinated, conspiratorial plot.
The Washington Monthly article cites “supposed experts” who say cognitive tests are not required for Joe “unless problems are detected”
Instead, [the media ignore what] people are hearing with their own ears from [Biden’s] mouth — the Democratic Party’s anointed establishment pick. It cites supposed experts who neither directly address any of Biden’s specific recent mental failings nor give any indication that they are even aware of them. It also contains the following problematic section:
“The only test that hasn’t been done is the cognitive functioning test,” Olshansky added. “But the fact that he’s on the campaign trail and meeting a rigorous travel and meeting schedule probably would suffice as a replacement for the formal test for cognitive functioning.”
He said that cognitive tests are typically not required unless problems are detected.
To be clear, this is the article saying Biden’s cognitive functioning has not been tested. [The article] is being passed around to assure people that Biden does not have cognitive functioning problems. Because Biden is performing so outstandingly on the campaign trail.
[Sad to Watch — Joe “Before” and “Now”]
Joe Biden’s sharp cognitive decline, You Tube, March 7, 2020
“This isn’t going to work, America…. Please do whatever you need to do to stop this nonsense”
This isn’t going to work, America. You will not be able to beat Donald Trump by telling them that they are imagining signs and symptoms of dementia that are clearly and unquestionably there, no matter how many think pieces and op-eds you churn out telling people that they are horrible ageist ableist monsters for seeing what they see and hearing what they hear.
Please do whatever you need to do to stop this nonsense and ensure that Donald Trump winds up running against someone who can, at the very least, string sentences together to form complete thoughts.
Thank you and please don’t bomb us.
The rest of the world.
