Is Jill Biden the One Pulling the Strings?

I am convinced that Dr. Jill wanted to be the First Lady more than Biden wanted to be the President.

Everybody seems to think that someone, possibly Barack Obama, George Soros or Susan Rice, is Joe Biden’s puppet master.

I’m guessing it’s far more likely to be his wife. After all, she was aware of the fact that her husband was in a bad way and yet she pushed him to seek the nomination. Why?

As one of my subscribers, Dr. Joseph Neuner, pointed out, Biden’s mental decline is nothing new.

The doctor wrote: “In February 1988, Biden underwent surgery for a cerebral aneurysm and almost died, except for the heroic efforts of his neurosurgeon. Three months later, a second aneurysm had to be clipped. After the second procedure, his neurosurgeon gave him less than a 50% chance of a full recovery.

"With that history, one would think that the media would have questioned him during his presidential campaign about whether any diagnostic studies had been done in the interim, but they never did.

"On his most recent published physical exam, it was noted that he has persistent atrial fibrillation. This diagnosis alone would disqualify him for standard life insurance because of a five-fold chance of a stroke.

"The treatment for this condition is chronic anti-coagulation, which in a feeble, unsteady 78-year-old male, who fell three times while ascending the stairs of Air Force One, is extremely risky. A severe fall with a head injury could result in a fatal cerebral hemorrhage.

"His mental and cognitive status have obviously deteriorated as is apparent to anyone who watches him speak, despite his handlers’ attempts to protect him as much as possible. Speaking in short sentences with frequent pauses, the need for notes to answer questions, using jumbled words without meaning, short term memory lapses, are all definite signs of brain damage. It surprises me that his wife, who knew his shortcomings better than anyone else, could not have talked him out of taking on the most difficult job in the world.”

Exactly. She knew, but she didn’t care.

I am convinced that Dr. Jill, as she insists on being called, wanted to be the First Lady more than Biden wanted to be the President.

And now, she wants to be the co-president, Kamala Harris be damned.

Hillary Clinton had a hard time playing second fiddle to husband Bill, but at least he wasn’t non compos mentis, so she had to bide her time before going after the brass ring.

But with Joe doing everything but drooling, Jill finds herself in the same position as Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, who apparently got to run out the last year or so of her husband’s term after he had a stroke that left him partially paralyzed and suffering brain damage. She, his doctor and certain higher-ups in the Democratic Party, conspired to hide the truth from the world.

At least Edith Wilson didn’t do anything as disastrous as pulling our troops precipitously out of Afghanistan.

Of course I’m only theorizing that Jill Biden is the lizard behind the curtain, but it’s certainly not as far-fetched as believing that in 2020, her husband actually garnered 81 million votes, 16 million more than Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton had received.

Charlie Schmitz, who has viewed the Afghanistan debacle with disgust, passed along a meme that read: “Time to drop old Joe off in Kabul and tell him to make his way to the airport.”


As you may have heard, Sirhan Sirhan recently had his 16th hearing before the California parole board. It was the first time that a prosecutor wasn’t present to oppose freeing the man who killed Robert Kennedy in 1968.

Although six of Robert and Ethel’s eight children let it be known that they opposed his release, two others, Doug and Robert Kennedy, Jr., argued for it.

I’d never heard of Doug before, but I’m not surprised that Junior, who is generally wrong about everything, is at it again.

He has made a career of virtue-signaling. He insists that climate change is a real thing, an existential danger to the world, and insists that people quit adding to the earth’s carbon footprint, but he has spent the past 30 years hopping on private jets to take his puerile message around the world and to pick up environmental awards in far-off lands.

If there was a prize for hypocrisy, his mantel would be covered with them.

But it’s not just climate change. Long before Covid came along, Kennedy was waging war against vaccinations, including the one for measles.

I suppose there’s nothing to stop him from arguing for the release of his father’s killer, but it smacks of his constant attempt to present himself as saint-like.

I have always believed that if you murder someone, you should forfeit your own life. But at the very least, you should die behind bars.

I felt that the only person who had the moral authority to forgive a murderer was his victim. And as the killer had precluded that possibility, fathers, mothers, siblings, friends and virtue-signaling celebrities, should just keep their yaps shut.

Now we’ll just have to wait and see if the 16th time is the charm for Mr. Sirhan.

In the meantime, the peripatetic Mr. Kennedy will probably be jetting off to Sweden to compare notes with Greta Thunberg, the creepy teenage climate zealot who is almost as loony as he is.


It seems to me that if the people of Afghanistan are serious about getting the Taliban off their backs, they should engage in guerrilla warfare. They should set about murdering their captors in their sleep. No reason to face them in the open where they would be outgunned. But everybody sleeps. And after the first hundred or so goons had their throats slit, they wouldn’t be sleeping too soundly.

And after a while, the Taliban brutes might consider taking up a different line of work.


In a 23-page report ordered by Senator Tom Cotton and House members Jim Banks, Dan Crenshaw and Mike Gallagher, the Navy acknowledged that the service is unprepared for battle because training to fight wars has been subordinated to bureaucratic and politically correct diversity concerns.

The report divulged that the upper echelon is terrified of the media and too preoccupied with checking boxes and kowtowing to their superiors.

“The four legislators, all veterans, commissioned the report,” according to The New American, “because of four major incidents: the catastrophic fire on the USS Bonhomme Richard pier-side in San Diego; the collisions of the USS McCain in the South China Sea and the USS Fitzgerald near Japan; and the embarrassing surrender of two small U.S. Navy craft to Iran.”

According to a retired senior officer: “I guarantee you that every unit in the Navy is up to speed on their diversity training. I’m sorry that I can’t say the same of their ship handling training.”


When I consider Joe and Jill Biden, I’m reminded of a meme that showed a reporter asking Prince Harry if he has to check with Meghan before speaking, and her responding “No, he doesn’t.”
