Debate's Reveal: Democrats Redefine 'The Big Lie,' as Biden's Party's Disqualified from Being Trusted

“I Wouldn’t Trust That Man to Run My Dishwasher.” Who’s Really Running the White House?

By David Catron

What millions of Americans witnessed last Thursday during the so-called "Presidential Debate" was far worse than the mere implosion of an incumbent’s reelection campaign. The irredeemable corruption of the Democrat Party was also laid bare for all of America to see.
There can be little doubt that Joe Biden’s unfitness for office has long been common knowledge among his party’s leadership as well as its rank-and-file officials. Yet the Democrats deliberately defrauded the American people concerning who really controls the executive branch of our government.

Nor do they intend to do the right thing even now.

The party’s “senior statesmen” – former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, among others – have publicly urged Biden to continue the charade.

These people couldn’t care less how perilous it is for the United States to continue… with a cipher in the Oval Office.

Obama took to X on Friday and dismissed Biden’s disastrous performance:
“Bad debate nights happen. Trust me, I know.” But can we trust Him? This is the man who received PolitiFact’s Lie of the Year Award in 2013 for telling the voters,

Clinton also came to Biden’s defense on X, where he credited him with reducing inflation. This truly fails the laugh test coming from the man who once looked the nation in the eye and told us (video,)

I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.”

Perhaps a more reliable indicator of Biden’s mental acuity is, Special Counsel Robert Hur’s Report on his mishandling of classified documents, which revealed the President’s frequent memory lapses:
Mr. Biden’s memory was significantly limited, both during his recorded interviews with the ghostwriter [Mark Zwonitzer] in 2017, and in his interview with our office in 2023…

He did not remember when he was vice president, forgetting on the first day of the interview when his term ended (“if it was 2013 – when did I stop being Vice President?”), and forgetting on the second day of the interview when his term began (“in 2009, am I still Vice President?”).

He did not remember – even within several years – when his son Beau died.

And his memory appeared hazy when describing the Afghanistan debate that was once so important to him.

Hur’s description is wholly consistent with the Joe Biden we saw on the CNN stage last Thursday night.

It also accounts for his extraordinary behavior at the recent D-Day commemoration ceremonies and G7 Summit.

Indeed, the combination of Hur’s Report and Biden’s appalling debate performance effectively debunks White House claims that his cognitive decline has been exaggerated in “deceptively edited” videos by Fox News and the RNC.

Yet most elected Democrats are still attempting to portray Thursday’s debacle as little more than a lackluster showing. Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), for example, wrote it off thus:
Sadly, this is not a ball game. Joe Biden is masquerading as the President of the United States.
After last Thursday, no one believes this man is in charge of anything.

This means the people who actually run his administration wield enormous power — without the consent of the American people.

Regardless of what one thinks about the outcome of the 2020 Presidential Election, no one voted for any of the Obama/Clinton retreads who currently infest the White House. Nor was a single ballot cast for “Dr. Jill.” Nonetheless, the Democrat Party is perfectly content to let this continue if it offers even a slim chance to remain in power.

Even people like Maureen Dowd see this as she writes in the New York Times:
In Washington, people often become what they start out scorning. This has happened to Joe Biden.

In his misguided quest for a second term that would end when he’s 86, he has succumbed to behavior redolent of Trump. And he is jeopardizing the democracy he says he wants to save … Jill Biden, lacking the detachment of a Melania and enjoying the role of first lady more, has been pushing — and shielding — her husband, beyond a reasonable point.

After Thursday’s embarrassing debate performance, she exhorted the crowd and played teacher to a prized student:

“You did a great job!

"You answered every question!

"You knew all the facts!”

Moreover, it goes without saying – Dr. Jill’s claims were factually inaccurate.

The man subjected to this demeaning treatment is, lest we forget, our "Commander in Chief," and has the power to launch a thermonuclear attack against virtually any target on Earth.

During a debate watched by roughly 51.3 million people, Biden claimed that no American soldier had been killed during his tenure in office. The actual death toll on his watch has been 13 in Afghanistan and 3 in Jordan – so far.
  In the end, none of this mattered to the Democrats. After a few hours of whining about Biden’s debate performance, they began circling the wagons around him. Former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were joined by former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, Rep. James Clyburn, Sens. Chris Coons and Raphael Warnock, California Gov. Gavin Newsom and North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper, et al.

These people couldn’t care less how perilous it is for the United States to continue for the next six months with a cipher in the Oval Office. Their only concern is about positioning themselves for the next upward failure.

Thus, the Democrats can’t be trusted with the reins of power in 2024.
