Whether your state has voted or not, this is something you can do to help Bernie Sanders. I believe the conflux of Biden's declining mind due to dementia or some light strokes, plus the facts of his having lied so much about his totally fabricated Civil Rights history, plus the very serious implications of his "gaffes" indicating some serious problems: all of these are becoming strong messages in the mainstream media, and even in the major newspapers like the Washington Post.

I did precisely this today, with not only my two Senators from New Mexico, Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich, but also Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon, who strongly endorsed Bernie in a New York Times Editorial in 2016. Officially, only Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont has endorsed Bernie Sanders, and he has been almost silent about it, at least as far as I can discern. I can't tell you what any of these 3 Senators will do, but I felt like I had done the supremely right thing, since there is so much at stake for our nation's future.


Internationally? This is from Ted Rall, columnist and cartoonist in the Japan Times:

Biden's family should have known better than to allow a campaign by the guy who inspired the headline "Biden allies float scaling back events to limit gaffes." Not that gaffes are the issue. Or stuttering. Or being old. Many Americans are as old or older than Biden, they stutter, and they're mentally competent. Biden is not.

Of course you also have to cast the stinkeye at Biden's former rivals Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg, Beto O'Rourke, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris and Mike Bloomberg. Just because the DNC probably urged them to endorse Biden doesn't mean that they had to. No Cabinet position or even a position as vice president should be enough inducement to set aside common sense. Elizabeth Warren earns an honorary mention for her failure to speak out against Biden and to endorse Sanders.


'Frail' Joe Biden is 'not healthy' and has stroke risk, says Obama's former MD

Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden is "not healthy" and is at risk for suffering deadly strokes. That's the assessment of Dr. David Scheiner, the former longtime physician to Barack Obama.

Dr. Scheiner refuted a recent letter released by Biden's campaign, where Joe's own doctor claimed that the 77-year-old career politician is a "healthy, vigorous" man. But Dr. Scheiner said he doesn't completely agree. He said that while Biden is healthy for his age, he has "a lot of" health issues that could get dramatically worse over the next four years.

"He's not a healthy guy," Scheiner told the Washington Examiner. "He's not in bad shape for his age, but I wouldn't say he's in outstanding health. Could I guarantee he won't have issues for the next four years? He has a lot of issues that are just sort of sitting there."

The letter from Biden's personal physician, Dr. Kevin O'Connor, revealed that Biden has a history of aneurysms, high cholesterol, and gets treatment for an irregular heartbeat.


These current US Senators have endorsed Joe Biden; please write and/or call them to ask how do they reconcile their endorsement with Joe's declining mental faculties. They may be beginning to regret their endorsement, especially as the medical discussions about Biden are just barely getting going now.
