Regime Media: Ignore What You Can See and Hear With Your Own Eyes. We Have Indisputable Scientific Evidence, Declared by a Panel of "Experts," That Joe Biden Is As Healthy as a Communist Figurehead Can Be

Before getting to that: We had another Gerontocracy Moment.

Dianne Feinstein is demented that her aides drill into her head "just vote aye" or "just vote nay." She has no idea what she's doing or why; she just knows her aides -- her nurses and caretakers, basically -- have told her what to do and how to vote.

Proof of that came as fellow decrepit Democrat Patty Murray was caught on a hot mic whispering to Dianne Feinstein to shut up and "just say aye" on a Defense authorization vote.

A hot microphone caught California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein being told to "just say aye" multiple times during a key defense vote Thursday.

"For me to say I would like to support a yes vote on this. It provides 823 billion. That's an increase of 26 billion for the Department of Defense. And it funds priorities submitted," Feinstein says before you can hear others trying to get her to just say aye on the vote. An aide can be seen coming up to her and whispering in her ear.

Washington Democratic Sen. Patty Murray can then be heard saying, "Just say aye."

Feinstein responds by saying, "Ok, just... aye!"

Obviously Feinstein is not making her own decisions. Therefore California does not have a senator in this post. They have unelected aides and senators from other states making all decisions for Feinstein.

Sheldon Whitehouse, who is also a nasty old codger, just proclaimed that the unhealthy and demented Dianne Feinstein must never resign, because it could possibly endanger the Democrat majority on the Judiciary Committee.

Sheldon Whitehouse @SenWhitehouse

The fact is simple: if Senator Feinstein resigns, Mitch McConnell gets to decide whether Democrats have a Senate Judiciary majority.

I believe that's because, while Newsom could appoint a replacement senator for Feinstein, that senator cannot be added to the Judiciary Committee without McConnell's approval. Committee spots are fixed, I think, at the beginning of each Congress.

Don't worry, though, Mitch McConnell is very healthy and strong and won't help a fellow ailing oldster out.


On to the actual headline story.

The Washington Post attempted to cover up for Biden's decrepitude earlier this week, telling people who can see and hear his decline with each of his (very few) public appearances that they're just wrong. In fact, the Washington Post says there's a "near consensus" -- a near consensus! -- that Biden's perfectly fit and that anyone saying otherwise is just an uninformed conspiracy theorist who doesn't understand that fit people routinely need to be kept in a basement and hidden from public view.

They frame this as a neutral kind of piece, because they allow that Trump is also nearly as fit as Biden.

But no one's alarmed at Trump's physical condition, only Biden's.

So this isn't neutral at all.

If "experts" say that neither the political left nor right has shown any interest in defending pedophilia -- that's not a neutral statement. It's one designed to protect the left.

As the oldest major party front-runners in American history -- even with demanding schedules -- they both remain physically capable. Both candidates have recent passing reports from their physicians and partake in healthy living habits -- no smoking, no drinking, no hazardous labor.

Actuarial tables suggest they are far more likely than not to live through a second term if elected, and experts in aging say there is little reason to doubt their continued health during that time, given the enormous benefits of their socioeconomic status, including access to high-quality health care.

"Far more likely than not" -- like 60-40! Maybe even 70-30!

No cause for concern at al, Science-Haters!

"I don't think, unless something dramatic comes out during the campaign, that age will be a major factor," said Steven N. Austad, who studies healthy aging at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

And with Biden locked in the basement, they'll make sure that "nothing dramatic comes out during the campaign."

But those assurances have not yet convinced much of the voting public.

The stupid public that believes the reality in their eyes and ears instead of a "near consensus" of "experts" handpicked by the outrageous propaganda machine the Washington Post.

The near consensus among scientists who study aging -- based on generalized probability, not individualized certainty -- has run headlong into a demonstrable fear that time is not on the side of Biden or Trump.

Only 1 in 3 Americans say Biden is mentally sharp and physically healthy enough to hold office, according to an April Washington Post poll, compared with 54 percent who are confident in Trump's mental fitness and 64 percent who say he is in good enough physical health to be president.

Biden's not. Trump is... uh, I don't want to get into a fight. Let's say I see the a similar, though not as serious, degradation in executive function in Trump.

(Executive function is important in someone's ability to control his behavior and emotional responses.)

A separate NBC News poll completed in June found 55 percent had "major concerns" about whether Biden had the necessary physical and mental health to be president, while 44 percent had "major concerns" about Trump.

Such worries spring from hard realities. The risk of illness and death increases steadily with age as the ability to put in full days of work drops off. Just 6 percent of octogenarians remained in the workforce in 2019, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data.

But those who study the topic caution that people age at widely different rates and chronological age is often an inaccurate predictor of how well they will fare in later years.

And Biden is obviously frail. He barely lifts his feet when he walks. The White House has had to open the belly staircase on Air Force One for fear he'll fall and kill himself.

A 65-year-old may be as physically and cognitively compromised as a typical 75-year old. An 85 year-old may be as mentally sharp and physically capable as a younger person.

And an 80-year-old might show the physical and mental frailty of a 105-year-old, as Biden does.

Now, let's hear about this Panel of Experts the Washington Post assembled.

How many handpicked "experts" did the Washington Post consult, do you imagine?

30? That's too low for a valid survey. You need 400 but it would be hard to get that many.

Did they, perhaps, contact 100 "experts" for this poll of experts?

Let's see:

Four experts consulted by The Washington Post said Biden and Trump were likely to retain the cognitive and physical abilities to perform as president between 2025 and 2029 -- unless they suffer a serious illness or injury.

I'm sorry -- did you say "four experts"?


The fifth, of course, disagreed.

And note how little these "experts" are saying -- it is "likely" that both men will retain the cognitive fitness to be president.

"Likely" only means "better than a fifty-fifty even chance," and anyway, that's a lie, because we can all see and hear through the testimony of our own senses that Biden is not fit NOW, nevermind what state he'd be in by 2028.

A fifth said it is too difficult to predict how well any individual will do, but agreed that Biden and Trump are more likely than an average person to retain their capabilities.

More likely than an average person -- but not more likely than 50%.

Three actuarial approaches consulted by The Post suggest a risk of death in a second term that remains low, even if it is much higher than the risks for their younger competitors like former United Nation's ambassador Nikki Haley, 51, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), 44. Depending on the methodology, the models showed a 14 to 31 percent risk of death for Biden's cohort before the end of his second term.

That's "low"? I know when people are diagnosed with cancer, and are told they have a 90% chance of living for five years, they consider the 10% chance they won't live that long a quite high risk of death.

But Biden only has a 20% chance of dying in the next four years. That's low right?

And remember: This is all based on the circumstance, "unless he experiences an accident or other sudden medical event."

And then the odds of dying get quite a bit higher than "low."

This is astonishing -- astonishing!

Meanwhile, NBC "News" spins Biden as healthy as a horse.

It's an indicator of how cloistered this White House is, because according to the NBC News article, Team Biden didn't realize just how bad their chief's public appearances had become until he tripped -- "hard," as NBC put it -- over a sandbag at last month's Air Force Academy commencement. "Afterward," Carol E. Lee, Peter Nicholas, and Monica Alba reported, "a few huddled to figure out what may have gone wrong and how to make sure that such an embarrassing and dangerous incident never happens again.'"

The NBC reporters continued, "Any misstep is bound to be magnified when voters are already prone to believe Biden should consider retirement."

It's just a "belief" voters have -- despite admitting that a mere fall is "dangerous" for a man as old and fragile as Joe Biden.


Flash forward to today. The first step in the White House's Operation Mighty Joe Young is to keep Biden from walking up too many stairs. Instead of walking up the big red stairs to the main entrance of Air Force One, NBC says that "More and more, Biden is forgoing the long staircase for the shorter stairway that takes him up through the plane's belly."


"In the weeks prior to tripping onstage, Biden used the shorter set of stairs to get on and off the presidential aircraft 37% of the time. In the past seven weeks he's used them 84% of the time, or 31 out of the 37 times he's gotten on and off the plane."

NBC is honest enough to admit that Biden now uses an "extra-large font on his teleprompter and note cards to remind him of the points he wants to make in meetings." Yet NBC somehow failed to mention that Biden still fumbles his way through his note cards -- particularly with Israeli president Isaac Herzog last week -- and that his so-called press conferences include scripted questions presented by approved reporters.

[T]oday's article is more like a Nixonesque "modified limited hangout." While conceding that Biden is indeed old, the report omits vital facts and ends on an upbeat note.

NBC "News" is about to unveil their own Scientific Evidence proving that Biden is fit as a fiddle.

NBC quotes former Labor Secretary Marty Walsh recalling that "If you've ever given him a hug, you're going to feel the man is solid. He's in good shape."

Oh, they have Hug Evidence? I didn't realize they'd acquired the gold standard evidence of "the solidity of a hug."

So this political hack has some magical ability to Diagnosis Through Hugging, and says Biden feels like he's "solid," and not just a ghost, which you might have thought he was because he sure spends a lot of time shaking hands with invisible ghosts.

Nevermind, then.

NBC also reminds readers that "Any president can forget a name or place, mangle a sentence or tumble over a tripping hazard."

True enough. But how many stare dead-eyed at the huge font on the teleprompter as they barely mumble their way through the words?

C'mon, man, let's do some pushups.
