Flotsam and Jetsam - Superb Owl Sunday Edition

Of course, the report from Special Counsel Robert Hur, in which he allowed that Biden should probably be charged under the espionage act for taking and improperly handling secrets, except that he is a feeble, forgetful old man with a gracious mien who would be rapidly acquitted by the typical Democrat biased Washington D.C. jury is still dominating the conversation. At Da Fed, Dave Harsanyi says Either Biden Is An ‘Elderly Man With A Poor Memory,’ Or He Needs To Be Charged. Pick One. Hear, hear! Anxious anxiously goes Inside the White House's fight to defend Biden's fitness. "Biden advisers argue that Hur's decision to offer a damning personal assessment of the president deviated from Department of Justice standards. Some legal experts, however, contended that Hur detailed Biden's memory lapses to explain why he didn't charge the president for mishandling classified documents." KT at Hat Hair hears the new White House strategy is Blame Garland, Gaslight Trump, Wear More Makeup and Use Better Lighting. "It's too late for all of that. The cat is out of the bag. We see Biden with our own eyes." At OTP, Biden Fumes Over AG’s Role In Special Counsel Report, Investigation Of Hunter "Biden Fumes Over AG's Role In Special Counsel Report, Investigation Of Hunter." Jonathan Turley “That is Not the Judgment of the Press”: The White House Calls the Media to Heel With Disinformation Campaign, "What was striking, however, was the degree to which President Biden and his staff spent this week putting out clearly false statements.  In an administration that has pushed for the censorship of citizens accused of disinformation, misinformation, and malinformation, the President openly lied about his conduct and the report." Politico, Dems plead with Biden to do more, not less, media as doubts grow about his capacity for the job. Yeah, tell more lies more often! At WaEx, Kamala Harris challenges Robert Hur’s integrity in ‘politically motivated’ Biden report. Mike LaChance at LI, Democrats and Media Viciously Attacking Special Counsel Robert Hur For Describing Biden as ‘Elderly Man With Poor Memory’. "Kamala Harris: “what I saw [in] that report last night, I believe, as a former prosecutor, the comments that were made by that prosecutor [were] gratuitous, inaccurate and inappropriate." At Red State, Nick Arama thinks Jill Biden's Statement on the Hur Report Is a Shameless One for the Books by Mentioning Beau. I would expect nothing less. Also, Biden's Interview With Hur's Team Raises Questions That Could Come Back to Haunt Him. At Da Fed, Margot Cleveland informs us Democrats Spun Biden’s Classified Docs As ‘Six Items,’ But Special Counsel Report Reveals It Was 300-Plus

From Fox, David Axelrod warns Biden presser 'reinforces the meme' that the president is too old: 'Can't unring the bell'. "Axelrod noted, 'the most damaging things that can happen in politics [is] there are things that reinforce a meme that’s out there that is hurting you.'" Jeff Charles at RedState thinks Rachel Maddow Offers One of the Weakest Ever Defenses of Joe Biden's Fitness for Office. PM Rachel Maddow says Biden is definitely mentally fit for office—'he rides a bike!' And like a five year old, he only falls over once in a while. Mike Miller at RedState hears Speaker Johnson, Top Republicans Call for Biden's Resignation Following Release of Damning Hur Report. It should happen, but it won't. \

Hat Hair's Jazz Shaw explores So Just How Bad Was That Biden Classified Docs Report? At WaEx Paul Bedard concludes Biden repeatedly shows he’s losing it and Naomi Lim thinks Biden’s physical takes on renewed importance after Hur revelations. Althouse reads the  NYT "Mr. Biden’s voice has grown softer and raspier, his hair thinner and whiter. He is tall and trim but moves more tentatively..." "... than he did as a candidate in 2019 and 2020, often holding his upper body stiff, adding to an impression of frailty.... Mr. Trump, by contrast, does not appear to be suffering the effects of time in such visible ways." At Breitbart, 9 in 10 Americans Have Concerns About Biden’s Physical, Mental Health. PJM's Rabbi Barclay looks in Biden's eyes and wonders Has Joe Biden Become Possessed, Or Is He Just High as a Kite?

In looking at Biden’s eyes, his pupils are severely dilated. While he still has crystal blue eyes much of the time in candid photos, the pupils are so dilated in his speeches that they look black. Discounting the idea of him being possessed by a demon, there are only a few things that could cause that physiological reaction, the simplest being a reaction to a dark room. Given the bright lights, this is obviously not the cause. LSD, heroin, and cocaine also can cause dilated pupils, but again it is probably a safe assumption that Biden is not dropping acid prior to speaking publicly.

The other causes are related to dementia, and specifically to Alzheimer’s. The National Institute of Health has identified that pupil dilation while under cognitive stress is a marker for Alzheimer’s. Additionally, the most common drugs used to treat Alzheimer’s also create dilation of the pupils, whether they are anti-psychotics or other typical medications such as Rivastigmine.
