The funniest headline of the day following Presidential Candidate Joe Biden’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention is, “Man Who Has Been In Government For Nearly 50 Years Promises To Fix Government.”
Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden has been hiding in his basement throughout his campaign, attacking President Donald Trump, apparently without a record of his own to show for it, despite his 50-year career in politics.
Biden has flip-flopped and fibbed about Trump’s handling of the Coronavirus pandemic and the economy, yet refuses to detail his own policy proposals. He continues to forget his own incongruous record as a career politician.
Anyone tuning in to the DNC virtual convention this week couldn’t be sure which version of Joe Biden would be on screen.
On night-one alone, the Democrats believed they could gloss over their inconsistencies with a song list from B-list celebrities and bizarre, pre-recorded celebrity “interviews.” But in between the entertainment and distractions, the DNC speakers didn’t agree on much, and no one agreed on what the Democrat Party platform is with Joe Biden at the top of the ticket.
What everyone is keenly aware of is Joe’s rapid acuity decline. But we can’t talk about that elephant in the room.
Former White House physician Dr. Ronnie Jackson, commented recently on Biden’s apparent declining mental health issues. “The best way I can describe every time I see him is that he’s just lost,” Jackson said. “I won’t make any particular diagnosis about dementia … but what I will say is that something is not right.”
“I know he’s always been prone to gaffes, but these aren’t gaffes anymore. He can’t form sentences. Sometimes, he can’t complete a thought. I mean, he gets stuck, and he doesn’t know how to get out of the situation that he’s in. And he just finally has to give up,” Jackson told Donald Trump Jr.
Jackson, a retired Navy Rear Admiral, served several Presidents, including Barack Obama.
“His cognitive decline has got to a point where I’m not comfortable as a citizen of this country having him as my commander-in-chief. I’m not,” Jackson said.
Jackson’s comments are in an upcoming book from Donald Trump Jr., Liberal Privilege: Joe Biden and the Democrats’ Defense of the Indefensible, out Sept. 1, the Washington Examiner reported.
Democrats Have No Problem Using Sick and Frail Lawmakers
California Globe remembers and reported in 2010 when then State Senator Patricia Wiggins (D-Santa Rosa), who was suffering from a then-undisclosed illness, was propped up in the press bay in the California Senate by her husband, a prominent Democratic party consultant, and told how to vote on a critical Senate issue, under orders from then-Senate Pres. pro Tem Darrell Steinberg. Some months later, after her hometown newspapers called for her to resign, it was revealed that Sen. Wiggins had an invasive disease of the brain which caused significant memory loss, and sometimes vulgar outbursts.
I reported in 2010:
“Senator Wiggins, D-Santa Rosa, has been witnessed making public outbursts since as far back as 2007, at events in her district and more recently, in Senate hearings.”
Both The Napa Valley Register and the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, called for Wiggins to resign.
It was eventually revealed Wiggins was suffering from a disease of the brain which causes memory loss, and the outbursts, amongst other symptoms uncharacteristic to the Senator. But no one would discuss what was occurring with the Senator or acknowledge it on-the-record, leaving many constituents in her district miffed.
According to Senate staffers, Wiggins was observed using note cards to make even simple conversation. The most recent incident has Wiggins’ screaming about an empty water canister at a Joint Legislative Audit Committee hearing on February 17, 2010.”
This sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
Joe Biden Couldn’t Get His Message Straight At The DNC
The theme of the DNC convention appeared to be “throw everything at the wall and see what sticks.” And Biden and his handlers embraced the extreme radical left of his Party on the issues.
But a large part of the DNC show was also spent in half-hearted attempts to appeal to Republican voters, as a deliberate counter, within moments of other surrogates bragging about Biden’s embrace of socialist policies.
Defund the Police
Biden has flip-flopped on his messaging. In recent months, Biden has called to defund our nation’s police on more than one occasion. On night-one of the DNC, Joe Biden said that “most cops are good” when discussing police reform.
However, in a direct contradiction in messaging, during the day on Tuesday, the DNC hosted an LGBTQ Caucus Meeting where the participants pushed policies of defunding ICE and defunding police. This shows a lack of unification within the Democrat party.
“Why can’t folks imagine a world without the cops? … We are talking about abolishing the police, we’re talking about abolishing ICE, we’re talking about abolishing prisons,” the panel host said.
On the second night of the DNC, former President Bill Clinton spoke to the American people about what should be happening in the White House – oh the irony.
In 1999, Biden described Clinton’s actions as “reprehensible,” said they “brought shame” to “the office of the President,” and “hurt” the “country as a whole.”
In 2006, Democrat Claire McCaskill said, “I don’t want my daughter near him.”
Now, after Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations against Biden, Democrats have moved on from #MeToo and fully embraced hypocrisy.
During the confirmation hearings of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Kamala Harris was adamant that women who make allegations must be believed. She even Tweeted, “to all survivors of sexual assault: We hear you. We see you. We will give you dignity. Don’t let this process bully you into silence.”
At a campaign event in Nevada in April 2019, Harris discussed the allegations against Biden, declaring of the accusers: “I believe them, and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it.”
To all survivors of sexual assault: We hear you. We see you. We will give you dignity. Don't let this process bully you into silence.

On the second night of the DNC, Rep. Conor Lamb (PA-17) said, “…Joe led the recovery effort that created millions of jobs…under his leadership, America bounced back with the longest economic expansion in history.”
However, during the DNC Caucus and Council Meeting of Youth Council earlier that same day, convention speaker Ashley Nicole McCray advocated for the “destruction of capitalism.”

With all of this wildly contrasting messaging in mind, the Democrats are still attempting to tout a message of unity.
DNC Speakers Contradicted One Another
Night-one featured a slew of speakers blatantly contradicting one another, from whether Joe Biden could appeal to Republicans to whether he’s “progressive” enough for the radical left wing of the Democrat Party, and everything in between.
Some speakers said Biden is a moderate, but then moments later, others said how thrilled they were at Biden’s embrace of Bernie Sanders’ socialist agenda.
“I’m sure there are Republicans and Independents who couldn’t imagine supporting a Democrat,” John Kasich said after talking about his 30-year friendship with Biden, The Washington Post reported.“They fear Joe will turn sharp left and leave them behind. … I can’t imagine that happening.”
“John Kasich assures conservative voters that Biden won’t turn ‘sharp left’…. downscreen, CNN teases upcoming speech by Bernie Sanders,” The Hill reported.
CBS reported that Senator Bernie Sanders, Democratic Socialist and Joe Biden’s most formidable primary opponent, urged his supporters to vote against Mr. Trump – and for Biden. “My friends, thank you for your trust, your support and the love you showed Jane, me and our family. Together we have moved this country in a bold new direction,” Sanders said, adding, “Our campaign ended several months ago, but our movement continues and is getting stronger every day.”
“Sanders, who differed with Biden on his vision for health care, the scale of a plan to combat climate change, the feasibility of free college and more, said Biden will begin working to implement necessary change on Day 1,” The Washington Post reported.
Sanders noted Biden’s support for raising the minimum wage and for paid family leave. He said Biden will make child care and pre-K learning more affordable for all families. And he said Biden’s plan will move the country to 100 percent clean energy for the next 15 years.
The Washington Post reported that Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) praised Biden — and connected his politics to her own. “If you feel stuck in the middle of the extremes of our politics, if you are tired of them, then you have a home with me and you have a home with Joe Biden,” Klobuchar said. She even encouraged moderate voters in her home state to support Biden.
The DNC proved even Democrats know Joe Biden has no message and no enthusiasm, particularly by avoiding delving into Joe Biden’s 50-year record or agenda.
