Biden Is Brain Dead

8 08 2020

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

The first time that I came into contact with Joe Biden was when I had just left the U.S. Senate in January of 1973.  I attended his first committee hearing before the Senate Banking Committee—where I had served as a staff attorney, before heading the staff of the late Senator Edward W. Brooke of Massachusetts.[2]

In a very real sense, it was a tragic occasion because one month before—on December 18, 1972—Biden’s first wife Neilia and their one-year-old daughter Naomi were killed in an automobile accident while Christmas shopping in Delaware:

Neilia Biden’s station wagon was hit by a tractor-trailer truck carrying corn cobs as she pulled out from an intersection. Biden’s sons Beau and Hunter survived the accident and were taken to the hospital in fair condition, Beau with a broken leg and other wounds, and Hunter with a minor skull fracture and other head injuries.  Doctors soon said both would make full recoveries.  Biden considered resigning to care for them, but Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield persuaded him not to.[3]  

Yet that day in the Senate, Biden was courageous and all smiles; and his colleagues in the Senate welcomed him graciously, as a newly-minted U.S. Senator.

Thereafter, I attended many Senate hearings, as I had when I worked there.  However, it seems that I will always remember that one day.  Biden was doing his best—and life had to go on.  Many if not most of us might have gone into near- or complete-isolation following such a tragedy; and I admired Biden after that.

I came to the Senate as a Democrat, having been raised in a devoutly-Republican family, where giants like Dwight Eisenhower and Douglas MacArthur—and Richard Nixon—were lionized.[4]  Indeed, my mother had a framed photo of Pat and Dick Nixon on our living room table.

Fast forward to my post-Senate beliefs, and I had seen enough not to believe in either political party, so I became an Independent and have been one ever since.  I learned that the Kennedys were the very worst of American politics[5]; and Lyndon Johnson was responsible for the tragic Vietnam War, in which friends of mine were killed for nothing.

Indeed, when I left the Senate, I concluded that the Democrats were “evil” but smart, while the Republicans were “Neanderthals” and dumb.  I have never changed that opinion.

Joe Biden went through “vanity” hair transplants, just as one of my Senate “heroes” Bill Proxmire did[6]; and I did not pay much attention to Biden until Barack Obama picked him as a running mate.  Also, I have not paid much attention to the scandals surrounding Biden and his son Hunter, or to claims of Biden’s womanizing—which are “standard fare” in Hollywood, Washington and other power centers of this world.

While I have commented about Biden sporadically[7], the issue before the American people now and in the days and months to come is whether he has the mental capacity to be President of the United States.  These are not normal times, with the Coronavius sweeping the world and people dying—or at least being hurt and perhaps never recovering (e.g., economically).  And there appears to be no end in sight, with the virus’ “state sponsor” China seeking global domination.[8]

It goes without saying that Americans of all colors, religions and political persuasions cannot have a President who is “asleep at the switch,” quite literally.  And Biden has endured multiple brain operations, which may have affected his mental capacities in ominous ways.[9]  Our enemies globally are not stupid; and they have vast intelligence apparatuses that follow everything important that happens in our great nation.

Needless to say, they are not “missing a beat” in diagnosing Biden’s mental condition, which may be why it is reported that China wants him to succeed Donald Trump as our President.[10]  An “incapacitated” Joe Biden may be just what they want and need to advance their plans globally, and change the United States’ trajectory forever.

Lastly, it is worth repeating what I wrote almost twelve years ago about the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen’s magnificent work:

In the fable “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” two make-believe weavers purport to spin a fine suit of clothes for the emperor, which is made of beautiful material that possesses the wonderful quality of being invisible to any man who is unfit for his office or unpardonably stupid. The potentate and his subjects acknowledge that the garments are very fine indeed. That is, until one little child sees the emperor marching in a procession, and says at last: “But he has nothing on at all” — and the grand swindle is exposed for all to see.[11]

Perhaps before the 2020 presidential campaign has run its course, one little child will express the belief that Joe Biden is “brain dead,” or certainly very close to it.  Lots of Democrats know this already, but are too afraid (or ashamed) to acknowledge it publicly.

Good points. I don’t know if America can take four more years under Trump. But Biden is not the answer. How is it out of 300,000,000 people these two are the best we can do? Is it that those who have the skill set to navigate through the complexities of the world today are too smart to seek the office of POTUS? It seems a reasonable candidate would be mid-life, not end of life. That individual would preferably have previous military experience (after all he/she will be Commander in Chief), will have previous experience in elected office along with the intelligence, organizational skills and ability to unite even those with opposing views. This is who we need to move forward. Where is that person?

Thank you, Susan, for your comments.

The short answer is that our political process—and that of other democracies, such as the UK—chews up candidates to such an extent that most people never want to get involved. They prefer their privacy; and there is none at the highest levels of politics.

I wrote an article three years ago about an old friend who was a multi-billionaire, and who avoided the limelight. But he was a “rarity”—certainly in terms of Americans who were/are capable of running the country, but would never do so.

See (“Jerry Perenchio: Kind And Caring”) and (“Jerry Perenchio”)

Lastly, you stated:

It seems a reasonable candidate would be mid-life, not end of life. That individual would preferably have previous military experience (after all he/she will be Commander in Chief). . . .

Interestingly, in addition to his other accomplishments, my friend was a jet fighter pilot in our Air Force.

Thank you for such an interesting read. As a Canadian, I find it unbelievable that American citizens would even consider Mr Biden for such an important position. It’s not as though he seems capable of growing into the position. It is extremely worrisome to consider the possibility ( perhaps likely outcome, should mail in ballots be as vulnerable as they appear) that the US would have a leader far less capable than our own Justin Trudeau, who is not exactly praiseworthy material for the post he currently occupies. I can only assume that the Democrats want someone who can be controlled by the tech oligarchs and other globalist enterprises nominally based in the US. Hopefully, the polls are wrong and fraud can be kept to a minimum. The election of Mr Biden would mean continued censorship ( a reason I no long frequent sites that require connections to Facebook, Twitter or Google), the return of Obama’s foreign policy approaches and the continued destruction of the middle class. In a way the US will become a toned down copy of the CCP version of China, perhaps even a subsidiary. This leaves Canada in a terrible dilemma. The madness that seems to be happening all over the US, the censorship, the control of the many by a less than impressive few, etc… is not the country I grew to love with several cross country road trip all over America, immediate American family and friends, wonderful plans for continuing to winter in Florida ( those have now changed to another country, as we are now actually afraid of the US). I do hope people wake up. President Trump has his personal ways which bother some, but his foreign policy desires is one I am very comfortable with. As a Canadian, the possibility of a leftist controlled Biden is distressing. His choice for VP is, unfortunately, not reassuring.

I have to hand it to the Democrats. They have managed to use fairytales, viruses and the mail system to possibly win an election which will install a government like few others on the planet. Pretty ingenious, though very evil.
