    With advancing age, people who are not skeptics say, comes wisdom, and certain infirmities, many of which have taken hold of President Joe Biden. These are visible to anyone who has eyes to see and ears to hear. The man is not who he was. And who he was still remains a mystery wrapped in an enigma.

    If not the worse president in U.S. history, Biden is a close second or third. Even radicals on the left who support his radical policies, many of them disastrous, such as his unrelenting attacks on the internal combustion engine, believe that others who are not faking American leftism, would be preferable to Biden. Present Governor of California Gavin Newsom, who ruined San Francisco as its mayor and California as its governor, has now set his eyes on the presidency as an alternative to Biden. To Newsom’s right, is Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the son of U.S. Attorney General and Senator Robert F. Kennedy and nephew of U.S. President John F. Kennedy.

    Biden is expected to exercise his presidential prerogative and refuse to debate his Democrat challengers in a primary.

    Was it not the sainted President Barack Obama who said of Vice President Biden, “Don't Underestimate Joe's Ability to F*ck Things Up”?

    Or did Obama say it? Truth checkers have done their best to smother attribution in uncertainties, but in view of Biden’s current f*ck ups, skeptics may be justified in thinking -- if Obama hadn’t launched the quote, he should have.

    Biden’s far left policies have perforated the U.S. southern border, given aid, comfort and Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan to the terrorist Taliban, poured scarce oil on inflationary fires through reckless spending and the borrowing and printing of money to finance his extravagant ways, and buried any semblance of truth under mountains of rhetorical, “made in Washington, D.C.” rubble.     

    Today brings news that the enemies of former President Donald Trump, who are legion on both the right and left, may finally, after many false starts, have caught the upstart disturber of the peace and arch hyperbolist in an inescapable snare. Trump, along with many of his contemporaries – among them Biden, Obama, Hillary Clinton, and former Vice President Mike Pence -- have taken to private residences papers marked “secret” and, even worse, “top secret” holding them there as prisoners not likely to escape to the foreign enemies of the United States.

    But Trump has slipped other poorly fashioned nooses held out by Democrats still suffering under the lash of Trump’s presidential inauguration on January 20, 2017.

    Nonpartisans who write about politics know that there is but one punishment for impeachment – removal from office. Though Trump was impeached in the U.S. House twice, the U.S. Senate failed twice to act on the House indictment and remove him from office, the first time because there were not sufficient votes in the Senate to convict on the House impeachment indictment, the second time shortly before Trump was due to leave office. Since the object of impeachment is dismissal from office, a second impeachment may seem redundant to fair-minded people.

    Trump’s leave-taking was bizarre and resentful. The former President still maintains he may have won the contest owing to ballot fraud. In an equally bizarre twist, Connecticut’s two U.S. Senators, Dick Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, supported moves to abolish the Electoral College to which Biden owed his presidency.

    Special prosecutor John Durham scrupulously investigated what has been called “Crossfire Hurricane,” false claims that Trump had conspired with Russian spies to rob Hillary Clinton of her due place as president, and concluded in a definitive report that, "Our investigation ... revealed that senior FBI personnel displayed a serious lack of analytical rigor toward the information that they received, especially information received from politically affiliated persons and entities. In particular, there was significant reliance on investigative leads provided or funded (directly or indirectly) by Trump's political opponents. The Department did not adequately examine or question these materials and the motivations of those providing them before opening a full-scale investigation."

    The report is painful to read and easily ignored or discounted by click baiters in the nation’s anti-MAGA media, along with politicians who are as painfully silent concerning the role played by Clinton and leading Democrats in what, following the Durham report, can only be regarded as a presidential destroying politically poisoned pill cleverly inserted into the gullet of national politics.

    All this and more – including First Son Hunter Biden’s collusion for filthy lucre with the permanent enemies of the United States such as fascist China – are, Democrats blithely suppose, to be forgotten by voters in the upcoming 2024 presidential election.

    As journalists sometime say, “We shall see.”
