Let’s Talk About Transparency, Then We Can Talk About The President

By Ray Cardello for July 9, 2024, Season 27 / Post 25
Joe Biden promised us the most transparent administration in history, which he did not have to commit to, for it is expected with the job. The President of the United States owes it to the American people, not just his supporters, to be truthful to every American. This administration fails miserably. We have lost track of the number of comments by Joe Biden and his diversity hire press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, which have been corrected and walked back. They are masters of telling you what they want you to believe while giving reasons why they cannot disclose the facts. Here is a suggestion. Just answer the damn question.
Monday’s press briefing was as poor a performance as Biden’s debate debacle. Biden’s flop can be attributed to dementia, but KJP’s performance was pure incompetence. The press corps is turning on this administration out of an attempt to survive. It had been caught in the conspiracy to hide the condition of President Joe Biden at the debate, and now they are trying to act like journalists by devouring KJP. She was flustered, argumentative, and defensive, and at one point, she was pleading for respect from this group, who used to eat out of her hand.
She could not, or would not, answer the question of the day, which involved reports that a particular neurologist who specializes in the treatment of Parkinson’s patients appeared on recent logs visiting the President three times a week. If true, this is serious information that could explain the President’s recent health-related incidents. But KJP was not going to be the one to spill the beans on Joe. She manipulated her answer to avoid the question, and after the fourth or fifth attempt, she resorted to security reasons for not answering. It was unclear whether she was protecting the doctor or the President. Either way, it was a horrible effort. If she were anything except a Black, Gay Female, she would have been terminated as soon as she left the podium.
The topic of Joe Biden’s health and competence would be a non-issue if he had only kept his promise to America in 2020. Knowing his age was already a concern, he assured the voters that he would be a one-term president. He would bridge from the chaos of the Trump Presidency to a more stable Democrat-led future. But in true Biden fashion, he lied and now refuses to step aside for the next generation of leaders. He has gone from reassuring to defiant and shows little mercy to anyone who defects from Team Biden or dares to call for him to step down. It has become apparent that it is Joe and Jill’s mission to maintain the position of power they have achieved, though not necessarily earned. They know their popularity rating is dropping, and they hear the rumbles, but they also know that unless the Democrats use the 25th Amendment, there is no way they can lose their position unless they approve of the movement.
The 2024 Democrat Convention in Chicago may be the most volatile and nasty event we have seen in recent times. It is apropos that the convention is in the most violent city in America.
