‘God Save the Queen, Man.’ Talk of 25th Amendment Muted With Biden

Who decides a president’s health for workplace?

We, the folks, do.

Or, no less than that’s how our republican system of presidency is meant to work. Prior to now few years, nevertheless, that concept has been severely challenged.

President Joe Biden delivered a speech on the Nationwide Safer Communities Summit on the College of Hartford in Connecticut on Friday. He ended with the weird assertion, “Alright. God save the queen, man.”

That quote is within the official White House transcript, hilariously sufficient. It obtained considerable online mockery and speedy media “contextualizing.” He’s used this phrase in inappropriate moments earlier than, they are saying, as if that makes it OK now.

Let’s break this quote down only a bit. First, Britain’s long-serving Queen Elizabeth II has been lifeless for greater than 9 months now, so Biden’s a bit late on that entrance if she’s the queen he’s referring to. 

Possibly he meant God save the drag queens?

Second, Biden wasn’t talking in London, he was in Connecticut, one of many unique 13 Colonies to declare independence from England. Biden’s speech was about gun management. Was this some type of coded message that he’s actually a neo-Tory prepared to complete the job the British military couldn’t pull off in 1776?

Who is aware of, however it actually may very well be one other signal that the president is experiencing critical, and apparent, psychological decline. That is hardly the primary time Biden has mentioned one thing unusual in a public setting.

Biden’s bizarre “joke” wasn’t even the primary head-scratching second in Friday’s speech. 

Are you able to decipher what he’s making an attempt to elucidate right here? It’s laborious to make something of this phrase salad:

We anticipate Biden to talk to different world leaders and function competently in battle and peace. Oh, however how dare you query his acuity and spot one thing’s amiss?

“Biden’s quirky aphorisms are typically weaponized by Republicans to insinuate the 80-year-old president is in psychological decline,” read an Axios report following Biden’s speech. “However Biden has been utilizing distinctive phrases for years — however even a few of his aides aren’t precisely certain what he means by them.”

The gall of these Republicans utilizing Biden’s incoherent quips towards him! Neither Axios nor Biden’s advisers can work out what the president is saying, however no matter, it’s simply “Biden being Biden.”

What a handy excuse. So, let’s take a bit of journey again in time.

Through the pandemic in 2020, there have been numerous tales about President Donald Trump’s well being. They have been fast to inform us that Trump rigorously strolling down a ramp “actually matters” and may very well be an indication of deteriorating well being. Possibly Biden should have taken notes.

It bought dumber. Well being consultants have been trotted out to show the purpose. Some speculated that Trump was suffering from neuropathy due to how he was ingesting water.

Former Home Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., sponsored laws to make it easier to remove a president from workplace over well being issues. It was a constitutionally doubtful measure that totally disappeared from the legislative docket as soon as Biden was elected.

There have been much more aggressive and ridiculous assaults on Trump’s psychological well being earlier in his presidency.

From virtually the second Trump was elected, the media promoted numerous psychological well being consultants—amongst them Dr. Bandy X. Lee, a professor of psychiatry at Yale College, who made fully unsubstantiated claims that Trump was a deranged psychopath who wanted to be faraway from workplace through the twenty fifth Modification.

Lee later tweeted that Trump was literally worse than Hitler. Ah, the knowledge that pours out of the fashionable academy. What would we do with out their steering?

The concept of utilizing the twenty fifth Modification to all of the sudden take away a president was principally primarily based on nonsense. Nonetheless, if what we noticed from Trump created some motive to invoke the twenty fifth, why haven’t the consultants come again out to put it on the market now?

The twenty fifth Modification flowed from the will of the ruling class to implement bureaucratic Caesarism within the identify of saving “democracy.” The Structure and the “norms” by no means actually mattered. Any suggestion of utilizing it’s off the desk now that Biden is in workplace and nonetheless serving to the Left. The “Huge Man” is in workplace, and their ideological allies run the present. The well being “consultants” are all of the sudden lacking in motion and don’t have anything to say.

The deeper drawback we face isn’t merely that Biden is declining. Neither is it the media’s bias and hypocrisy. No, it’s how the Left has “weaponized” the skilled class and our nation’s strongest establishments to hold out its ideological crusades.

The equipment that went into motion to shove Trump apart now works relentlessly to prop Biden up, in some circumstances actually.

Any suggestion that Biden is perhaps bodily and mentally unfit to serve, we at the moment are advised, is ageist and hateful, an instance of Republican “weaponization” of his look and public statements.

Possibly the most recent Bidenism is extra of an ominous foreshadowing that we’re passing from one type of tyranny to a different. Don’t ask questions, nor pay any consideration to the person backstage. Belief the consultants. God save the queen, man.
