Biden performs reasonably well at times, aided by the two teleprompters he’s usually behind during public addresses.
Guiliani and others have suggested that Biden is, or probably is, being given adderall, a drug related to methamphetamine and dextroamphetamine. It is given sometimes to dementia patients for its ability to improve short term cognition.
I think the un-namable “they” knew but underrated how bad he was and is. They thought they could limp him from the basement across the finish line, and Harris would be easy to control once he was gone. Their really big mistake was not realizing how incompetent Harris is, or they would never have allowed her to be chosen. Now they are stuck. To get someone acceptable in line of succession they need to be rid of Biden, Harris and Pelosi. Pelosi will obviously suit them short-term, but she’s an even bigger lightning rod than Biden, and they need to plan for the future. I don’t know what they can do, but whatever they try will be messy.
I think I know — but I should say I think — that the “Deep State” is very real, and is much more than the circle-jerk of career bureaucrats. I expect that it will be within the Deep ranks that the decisions will be made, but it will be made to appear as decisions of the Democratic Party leadership.
A GOP Congressman from North Carolina told me, “If you want to know who is REALLY in charge, think about who has the ability to destroy ANYONE.”
There is a file that contains every electronic communication “John Doe” — and you — have been party to for at least 20 years. No one has ever looked at it because John Doe has never been important. But if he becomes a problem, there are those who can: 1) review the John Doe file to find things that can be taken out of context to look criminal, or; 2) create a pretext to obtain a warrant to search his home, collect all his electronic communication equipment, and “find” on it, child porn, or communication with Russian spies, or classified data sold to China.
We might already be beyond the tipping point. The November election will be an example of “Interesting Times.”
