    Imagine a doctor standing at a patient’s bedside.  The patient is deathly ill, and will likely die without the aid of that life-support device resting by his bed. 

    “Thank God for these devices, and thank God we don’t have any supply issues in getting large quantities of them,” the doctor thinks to himself.  He leans over to administer the life-saving treatment but then pauses.  “Wait a minute… is this Joe Smith?  The same Joe Smith who called me a dirtbag at the country club last month and argued with me about mask mandates in our kids’ school?”

    Now, the question.  If the doctor wheels the life-saving device out of the room while citing the fact that someone else might need the device in some other hospital at some unknown time in the future, would that be murder?

    If the answer to that question is yes, then it is nowhere near approaching hyperbole to suggest that the Biden administration is murdering its opponents by rationing life-saving monoclonal antibody treatments and specifically withholding them from red states due to an apparent grudge.

    Last week, word emerged from the White House that Biden's own staff can't stand to listen to him.  It's not that they don't agree with his policies (heck — they probably crafted them).  Instead, it's that he's such a verbal loose cannon that they shudder when they hear him speak off the cuff.  Yesterday, the White House staffers paying attention to his answers about western wildfires were so worried about where his mouth was taking him that they pulled the plug on him in mid-sentence.

    Puppet politicians are all well and good when they take their orders and do as they're told.  They become a problem either when they try to seize real power or when they become so verbally incontinent that they can no longer be trusted to stick to the script and speak only when their strings are pulled.

    Let's hope Joe Biden has finally gone a fib too far, taking to the airways with false indignation to harangue us for daring to question his execution of the lethally inept Afghanistan "retrograde" action he engineered along with his Team of Trivials.  Biden's purpose was to obscure the fact that he'd blithely and needlessly thrust fine, dedicated troops into a tactical straitjacket that could logically have had no other result than multiple casualties — perhaps in the process causing some heretofore tightly shut eyes to be pried open concerning the character and abilities of our overmatched chief executive.

    To the vast majority of readers who frequent this site, Mr. Biden's disastrous incompetence is by no means a surprise.  Indeed, we've all pretty much known from his first day in office that one way or another, a nightmare was in the offing, and national humiliation would likely ensue.  But as in all bad dreams, warning cries were — with the suffocating pillow of Big Tech and corporate media — effectively muffled.  Usually, with little effect, our families, friends, and co-workers were issued warnings that in both temperament and judgment, Joe Biden was wholly unsuited for the presidency — and one needn't be an unabashed Trump-admirer to know it.

    Joe Biden is not a well man, both physically and emotionally.  The genuine tragedies he's encountered in his life have not imparted upon him the quiet empathy and understanding for which many had hoped, but instead rendered him scarred, damaged, and wholly unable to adequately meet his presidential obligations.  For some reason, he's embarking us upon a national suicide mission, with the eager assistance of those both foreign and domestic who wish this country harm, even destruction.

    It is up to Americans of good faith — of any political stripe — to put this self-destructive chapter to an end, while it can still be done by relatively peaceful and lawful means.  Time is quickly running out.

    As president, Joe Biden will not support, defend, or rescue Taiwan.  That sounds harsh.  But based on his colossal foreign policy errors, including his disastrous execution of American withdrawal that led to Afghanistan's breakneck capitulation, it's a pretty reasonable conclusions. His actions resulted in a loss of confidence in the U.S. as a global leader and as a reliable partner by the allies.

    From a policy perspective, the premise that the U.S. will assist Taiwan is questionable due to the decades-long U.S.-Taiwan "strategic ambiguity" stance. Strategic ambiguity has led and will continue to lead to mistaken and forlorn hope that it deters adversaries; it only invites miscalculations and unintended armed conflicts.

    If nothing else, the Afghanistan fiasco and the blatant abandonment of partners reinforced past misgivings about Biden.  Add to that the constraints of an outdated strategic ambiguity policy, a lack of a mutual defense treaty and the abject failure to execute the most important foreign policy charge he has faced, Biden cannot be relied on to support, defend or rescue Taiwan in there is a flare-up in East Asia.

    Well, he was NEVER a "hero" in my book...

    Imagine a celebrated running quarterback playing the last — and most significant — game of his career. At a critical moment, he fumbles and drops the ball. Suddenly it's all over for him and his team. Well, that's what Joe Biden now seems to have achieved in his political career. And we are all going to suffer for it.

    In his first months in office, he focused mainly on undoing the good that Trump had done in the previous four years. This destructive urge appears to have been motivated by spite accompanied by a lack of commitment to doing what is best for America instead of himself.

    Joe Biden, a mumbling; shuffling; confused; and, at times, incoherent old man, has gone in a few months from personal failure at home to causing a political catastrophe of global dimensions, the consequences of which will soon be unleashed upon us in the form of renewed terrorist attacks on the West.

    President Joe Biden is officially a disgrace to the office, the nation, and its citizens.  Ruined by his native low IQ arrogance, malicious incompetence, and aging mental health infirmities, and shunned by our allies, Joe Biden has no standing. Vacant VP Kamala Harris, having neither an ounce of political smarts nor a tincture of governance leadership chops, let alone self-awareness or likeability, makes a mannequin look statesmanlike. The Constitution has no proviso for the Joe Biden/Kamala Harris catastrophe, except for a series of impeachments, 25th Amendment removal, and waiting it out until 2024. But assuming both Biden and Harris are impeached, who would replace them? Pelosi and then Dem Senator and Senate President Pro-Tem Patrick Leahy are next in line.

    Can the Republicans arrange an omnibus impeachment to eliminate all of the toxic or incompetent successors?   Rhetorical speculations of that sort are unserious clickbait. Would the House and Senate Republicans, as a unified bloc, stymie and neutralize any Democrat agendas?  Uh, no. A three-year stalemate seems impossible; after all, Gen Ulysses Grant’s civil war stalemate and war of attrition in the Wilderness and Petersburg gave us a blood-soaked exhausting two years. All but a handful of Republicans are cowards and too unserious to wage a necessary political cleansing.
