NSW’s Incredible Folding Premier

Team Rainbow’s inexorable march through the institutions has been marked by clear strategic phases. There was the legalisation phase, cheered on by most small-l liberals and just about everyone else. Not many people thought locking up homosexuals was a good idea. Then we had the same-sex marriage debate. Then came the adoption-of-children push and the normalisation-of-lifestyle phase.

After that, the anti-discrimination-in-employment campaign, with Christian and other religious schools professing hetero-normativity (aka homophobia, as the activists paint it) in the cross-hairs. This was and remains part of the broader affirmation phase. We all have to approve and to love, not just tolerate.

Now we arrive at the mopping-up operations. Resistors must be chased from the public square. Those who do not affirm “the other” are the enemy. This now includes those who seek to stand up for the rights of those experiencing unwanted same-sex attraction and who desire professional help. In some cases, members of this cohort of undetermined size want to diminish same-sex attraction, others to reverse it.  Still others just wish to make sense of it. Some even want to learn how to be chaste, once considered by many to be a virtue.

And so we arrive at the issue of so-called “gay conversion therapy”.

No Changing Sexual Attraction

In this context, the Sydney Morning Herald, now firmly part of the PGGW (progressive, green, globalist, woke) Channel Nine-ABC industrial complex, has sensed the whiff of an opportunity to again hoist the NSW Premier on a Catholic petard. The issue of church versus state has entered the NSW state election campaign, focusing attention on the Perrottet government and so-called gay conversion therapy. This amounts to a follow-up blow after the recent Four Corners hit job on Pared schools.

Australian states and territories, including Victoria, Queensland and the ACT, have moved to ban practices aimed at changing or suppressing the sexuality or gender identity of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, asexual or gender and sexually diverse (LGBTQ) people. Legislation is also under preparation in Western Australia. However, the practice remains legal in NSW.

It is surprising that the Herald is “surprised”. After all, it has been leading the charge in politicising so-called conversion therapy. And it has worked in record time. The NSW Premier has caved, very quickly even for him, as he has on just about every cultural issue with which he has been confronted. His retreat was, sigh, entirely predictable.

Should Perrottet have surrendered on this issue? Is conversion therapy “atrocious”? Is it even conversion therapy?

“Counselling” is a more accurate and less loaded term than “therapy”. Banning it would be “a totalitarian act”, as the Queensland medico and bete noir of the rainbow coalition, David van Gend, has called what the Herald champions and the NSW Opposition proposes. He has told the story well, over and over.  Initially in response to the inevitable leader of the pack, Daniel Andrews. The compelling case van Gend has made is that this is an innocent and, in many cases, worthwhile practice. Very rarely is it “harmful”. As David says, ban therapy and you ban liberty.

There is something sick in the body politic when rigidly ideological politicians strive to prevent individuals from seeking their own well-being. This is a plea to keep political agendas out of the path of such individuals, to not ban their liberty by banning safe, effective, professional therapy all for the sake of enforcing this intolerant gay orthodoxy.

It seems that it is now intolerable for anyone to be homosexual (or even think they might be) and to not want to be — to want to bat for the other side, as we used to say. What about their rights? I am not seeing why those seeking help for a problem they identify in themself should be either branded “atrocious” or made illegal.

Van Gend talks about the ignorance and contempt for suffering displayed by those who seek to ban conversion therapy. What the rainbow activist position on this issue amounts to is either (a) an assertion that unwanted same-sex attraction does not exist, or (b) that it is utterly unimportant.  Either conclusion is quite damning for its position. In reality, unwanted same-sex attraction is an inconvenient truth always to be denied. Look, over there, at those homophobic religious bigots!

This is cruelty dressed up as a concern for the rights of homosexuals to be protected from what is seen by rainbow activists as oppression by the heterosexual state. Drawing on multiple peer-reviewed studies, van Gend calls the outcomes of counselling “overwhelmingly beneficial”, not ineffective and not harmful. Contrary to the conclusions of the anecdotal, statistically invalid, rent-a-victim approach of the inevitable and much-quoted La Trobe University hit job, the go-to text for activists.

Freedom vs Compulsion

Resources for the same-sex attracted are available internationally, and I assume that any forthcoming NSW legislation would make the provision of such resources illegal in the state.  The Catholic one is called Courage, which isn’t even about “conversion”, as the summary makes clear:

A Roman Catholic ministry that helps same-sex attracted men and women live chaste, holy and fulfilled lives, in accordance with the official teaching of the Catholic Church. They do not focus on recovering one’s heterosexual potential, but rather on learning to overcome the temptation to sin by giving over one’s life to Jesus Christ and by building healthy fellowship with others who share in similar struggles (emphasis added).  

Here is a question:  In the end, just who is converting whom here?  Who is doing the grooming?  The heterosexuals or the homosexuals?

On the one hand, we have a non-stop barrage of force-fed rainbow culture insinuating every sphere of life across the public square. We have all the funding grants, the community programs (like drag queens in libraries), the inculturation in schools and universities, the attempts by education departments to dress up grooming as “consent education”, the legislative strategies, the endless nudging by the legacy media and the rest.

No wonder there has been a substantial increase in people identifying as homosexual. (Just as there has been with people suddenly identifying in big numbers as Aboriginal). It is trendy and rewarding. One in six Gen Z Americans are homosexual, according to the Washington Post, part of the gay cheer squad. In the old days, it was thought to be about two per cent.

If the LGBT push has been part-recruitment drive, it has been extremely successful. Society has been groomed. The aforementioned La Trobe University has been at the forefront of the battle, a non-stop advocate for the march of gaydom that drove the notorious Safe Schools program, a front for the grooming of young people for the actively homosexual life.

On the other hand, we have religious and non-religious people who experience unwelcome and distressing same-sex attraction — and, as adolescents, many of us have been there — seeking help to overcome what they themselves see as an affliction. No victim status or sympathy for the gay refuseniks. We will make their suffering compulsory!


By the way, the targeting of Dominic Perrottet over the issue of conversion therapy and implied homophobia is a bit ironic, really.

The Perrottet Government is the gayest government since, well, Bob Carr’s. Think Gareth Ward — currently fighting sex abuse charges, alas — and the mercifully retired Don Harwin. Think Gladys rocking the Mardi Gras in her rainbow Liberals T-shirt. Think the Rainbow Coalitionists, aka the brokeback Nats. Most of all, think Sydney WorldPride month (or year, or decade, or whatever it is).  Here is the NSW Minister for the Arts and Tourism, one Ben Franklin:

“The NSW Liberal and Nationals Government is a proud delivery partner of Sydney WorldPride and we welcome everyone to the Pride Villages to take the rainbow-coloured party to the streets for WorldPride,” Mr Franklin said.

“Pride Villages will create a vibrant festival atmosphere, giving an expected 78,000 visitors to Sydney free and open spaces to gather, celebrate and enjoy the festival.

“Sydney WorldPride 2023 will showcase NSW to the world and we’re anticipating more than 500,000 people will attend this global event which will inject $112 million into the NSW economy.

“Sydney will be buzzing with excitement and activity which will turbocharge our 24-hour economy, create jobs and support local businesses across our State.” 

Buzzing with excitement at the rainbow invasion! Even the Roads Minister is excited:

“Incredible pictures of 50,000 people marching across our iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge will be beamed across the world on 5 March, thanks to extensive planning…

That would be the same bridge that now has an Aboriginal flag and no New South Wales ensign atop it.  Perhaps by March 5, there will be a rainbow flag aloft. And here is the Sydney WorldPride website:

The NSW Government is proud to support Sydney WorldPride in 2023.

The NSW public service strives to be a reflection of the community it serves. We actively promote employee networks and campaigns that encourage understanding of inclusion and diversity, and are committed to creating an inclusive and supportive workplace for all.

Across the sector, we lead or participate in a wide range of LGBTQIA+ initiatives, including the Diversity Inclusion Network, and Diversity and Inclusion Council, established by the Department of Premier and Cabinet and NSW Treasury; the Transgender, Gender Diverse and Intersex Working Group established by NSW Police; and membership of the national, not-for-profit Pride in Diversity employer support program.

There you go! A homophobic government if ever there was one.

Team Rainbow has little need for dishonest, sneering leftist media editorials to champion their progress.  They have already captured the commanding heights of the debate. They have won. Meantime, the rights of the unwilling same-sex attracted even to pray with a sympathetic pastor are shredded. This is the age in which we live. Gay nirvana. And no sexual liberation for those would actually like to be “converted” the other way.

We have been groomed, and conned. Scammed. Colonised by rainbow grifters. It seems clear who is winning the conversion wars. And no one in New South Wales minded to resist the rainbow tsunami can look to this conservative Catholic Premier for assistance, or so it seems.

All of which raises a broader question: what is the point of even being in politics if you believe in things but simply set them aside as if they do not matter? Paraphrasing St Thomas More’s words to Richard Rich (as attributed to him by Robert Bolt in A Man For All Seasons), one might inquire of Premier Perrottet, “Dominic, it profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world. But for New South Wales!”

Youth VAD is a Lethal Twist in the ACT

As part of the ACT Human Rights Minister’s consultation on VAD laws, the ACT Government is considering whether Voluntary Assisted Dying could be made available to teenagers.

Rob Norman, ACT’s political director, said,

“Euthanasia for teenagers opens up a modern-day pandora’s box. The slippery slope of deciding who, how, and when, a person’s suffering justifies lethal intervention, coupled with unprecedented mental health issues, and high youth suicide rates make for a dire situation indeed. Worryingly, suicide remains the leading cause of death of children in Australia.

“For Minister Cheyne to link a course of action that ends in death as a ‘safe and effective medical process’ is both ironic and macabre.

Signalling that VAD may be available for teenagers is irresponsible as it sends a dangerous message to vulnerable teenagers.

“If this proposal progresses, our entire culture will be dangerously and irrevocably changed for the worse.”

The Australian Christian Lobby calls on the ACT Government to suspend its public consultation and focus on preventing youth suicide in the ACT.

How Gardening Helped Me Quit My Antidepressant

When grocery store shelves began emptying sporadically in 2021, I started to worry in earnest about food security. I had enough land for a large garden, and I figured that 2022 was the perfect time to start producing some of my own food.

So last March, I pulled up hundreds of rocks, put down hundreds of square feet of cardboard to suppress weeds, and spread 7 cubic yards of compost. Over-ambitious and eager to produce a lot of food, I prepared more than 1,000 square feet of growing space.

When I resolved to start growing food, I didn’t know that taking on gardening would take me off my antidepressant. I had been on it since I was 18 years old. It saved me much suffering when I was younger, and maybe even my life (Lord knows how bad my depression could have gotten without intervention).

Last winter, however, I felt stable despite some more recently developed anxiety. I began to suspect maybe my antidepressant was no longer necessary. After all, the psychiatrist who initially prescribed it hadn’t said it was a lifelong sentence. Some people come off Bupropion and do well even five or 10 years later.

Since starting the garden, I had something to look forward to, a grand project to design and tinker with, and a whole new realm of knowledge to dig into. I was excited. Doubtless, I would get into all sorts of mischief, like when I was a kid building unstable forts in the backyard forest. Only this time, it would be safer. What’s the worst that can happen — I kill some plants?

Likewise, what’s the worst that could happen if I stopped my medication? I know my depression well, and I would go back on the drug if my doctor thought it necessary.

Sometime during my early garden research and too-early planting of seedlings, I began decreasing my dosage of the antidepressant until I was off it completely. I felt no worse — if anything, the facial pain I believe stemmed from the anxiety was a bit less intense.

Gardening eventually brought a whole host of benefits I had only just begun to unlock in late winter. It gives me something to look forward to and prepare for when nothing’s really growing outside. The first year before spring finally came, I constructed rock walls, dug drainage trenches, and built rabbit fencing in addition to starting my seeds indoors and preparing the soil.

Gardening helps limit my use of social media and keeps me from overconsuming news and analysis. It also gets me outside in the sunshine (and sometimes the wind and sleet). When I’m outside doing manual labor, also known as exercise, I’m not inside snacking or baking treats.

Working in my garden has taught me discipline and perseverance. Hundreds of seedlings faced demise in my care, and many more seeds never sprouted. But I kept trying until I got some sort of success. Nurturing the soil and the plants connects me to nature in a way I can’t experience by tossing a football or taking walks with my kids. The garden welcomes my children, teaching them how plants grow, where their food comes from, and valuable skills to grow their own. This year, my eldest will have her own patch of soil to grow seeds in.

Growing my own produce has lessened my dependence on increasingly pricey and understocked grocery stores. And it gives me “gold star moments” that are rare in “adulting” activities. A stack of folded laundry has nothing on picking a ripe tomato or that first summer squash.

It connects me to a new community of people who want to help each other. I have something to chat with my neighbor about over the fence and exchange harvests with. I didn’t know how much I would enjoy that.

Tending the plants also connects me to my Creator in a new way. When God created man, He put him in a garden. We were designed to be in a close relationship with God and with nature, to have dominion over His creation and steward it.

Last year, I grew more than 30 different crops, including a failed patch of corn, very meager potato harvests, sweet and abundant tumbler tomatoes, snap peas that became prize snacks for the children, and spaghetti squash that was so productive I ended up composting eight fruits that we couldn’t eat before they spoiled.

I planted two pear trees and several berry bushes, including raspberry canes that didn’t grow at all. I will fail plenty this year too, but last year’s mistakes are this year’s wisdom.

I’m not saying gardening is for everyone, but if you haven’t tried growing something — a radish, a tomato plant, a pepper plant — don’t write it off. If you’ve failed at it in the past, you may just need a bit more knowledge and inspiration to make it enjoyable.

If you like other design fields such as cooking, interior design, architecture, makeup artistry, or anything else that employs both creativity and problem-solving, you may find a new passion in tending a garden. Any kind of setup will do, whether it’s in-ground, raised beds, an allotment, or just a few containers on your patio.

My generation is riddled with anxiety and disconnected from nature. We’re addicted to screens, addicted to junk food, and deficient in both nutrients and the connection to stabilizing community that feeds our souls. I started gardening to increase food security, but the most valuable thing I got from it wasn’t the harvest I put on our plates.

As a mother living in uncertain times with a long history of depression, tending the garden heals and rejuvenates my mind. It is building my character and deepening my relationship with the One who created the complex and amazing biological processes that I’m partnering with to feed my family.

I think I will garden until I’m too frail in my old age to do it anymore. When that happens, I hope the neighbors or my children bring me some of their harvest so I can partake in the joy of gardening until the Lord calls me home. In that eternal dwelling place, I do believe a garden is waiting.


WA gun confiscation a model for Australia which is now a Russian target

Cairns News’ Russian sources today confirmed Australia is now a potential missile target since Russia refused to sign the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons on Thursday.

Playing right into either Indonesia’s or China’s potential hands, President Xi has aligned China with Russia and hostilities towards Australia are now possible.

China and Russia are members of the BRICS trading bloc and Indonesia has applied for membership.

Meanwhile the disarmament model for Australian gun owners is being developed now in Western Australia where the Labor Party intends to buy back high-powered centre-fire rifles from licenced shooters.

WA Labor Premier Mark McGowan has no knowledge of firearms and dislikes the people who own them

The question remains – will the several thousand affected owners fall into line?

Premier Mark McGowan has ordered police to go after these registered rifles then pay the owners what they think the guns are worth leaving the state without any civil defence capability at all.

If the megalomaniacal McGowan thinks the army, police or a few US Marines can do the job he is delusional, suffering in the same manner as all other Australian leaders, bereft of any common sense and living in their own holographic world, similar to that of moronic Ukraine President Zelensky.

Civil defence is essential to thwart any invader, just ask President Putin how many troops he has lost to civilian defence combatants and mercenaries in Ukraine.

What the mindless Premier has not taken into account is that Russia, since their Nord Stream pipeline was destroyed by the Yanks, considers all US allies are now legitimate targets for nuclear strike should Biden continue to escalate tensions in Ukraine.

Notwithstanding Australia became a target by supplying the Ukro-nazis in Ukraine with Bushmaster armoured cars last year and the foolish PM Albanese has donated more than $500 million to Zelensky’s benevolent fund, naturally at the behest of the warmongering US.

Last year Zelensky was caught out diverting hundreds of millions of US dollars handed over to Ukraine by the US government for the war effort, back into the hands of the Democrat Party.

Russian sources confirmed last week Mrs Zelensky bought an expensive property in the UK to match the multi-million mansion the Zelensky’s bought in Florida last year.

Perth and all of Western Australia are exposed to missiles from Russia and only in the last few days CN saw media which suggested Perth could be the first Australian target should Russia be prodded any further.

Who will McGowan rely on in the event of hostilities from our newly created enemies?

Not only is WA Labor confiscating rifles, anyone buying a gun in Western Australia will have to undergo mandatory and ongoing mental health checks, as part of a complete overhaul of the state’s firearms legislation.

On your way to Perth Rifle Range? Get your mental health check at the front gate before you enter

McGowan claimed 20 people died from gunshot wounds in the state last year, and Police Minister Paul Papalia said mental health issues were involved in at least half of those deaths.

What about the thousands of West Australians the Labor government killed or injured with mRNA gene therapy over the past two years?

Why are politicians not subjected to integrity, mental, IQ and drug tests before entering Parliament?

Predictably, another Labor stooge from WAFarmers agrees with the removal of rifles from his member’s hands.

Its CEO, Trevor Whittington, said the organisation welcomed the move and called it a “responsible step forward” that would “hopefully help reduce self-inflicted firearm suicides and God forbid a mass murder”.

“Firearms like explosives or aircraft in the wrong hands are potential weapons of mass destruction,” he said.

WAFarmers CEO Trevor Whittington, out of his depth, needs retraining about agricultural issues

Shooters Union Update

Literally just as we were about to send this month’s newsletter out, WA Premier Mark McGowan and Police Minister Paul Papalia announced they were banning a range of rifles they considered ‘too powerful’, citing concerns the guns (and cartridges) could shoot through police body armour. This statement is too absurd to comment – CN

Despite WAPOL admitting this has never been an issue (there are no incidents in Australia of someone using a .50BMG or .338 Lapua Magnum etc against police), the WA government is ramming the ban through, effective July 1st. They will, allegedly, pay market value compensation to the affected owners.

At time of writing the official list of banned rifles and calibres had not been shared from an official source, but we understand (via Sporting Shooter magazine) the newly prohibited cartridges are:

  • .340 Weatherby Magnum
  • .28 Nosler
  • .330 Dakota
  • .338 Lapua
  • .300 Lapua Magnum
  • .338-404 Jeffery
  • .338 Norma Magnum
  • .338-378 Weatherby Magnum
  • .338 Edge
  • .30-378 Weatherby Magnum
  • .300 Norma Magnum
  • .375 A-Square
  • .375 Gibbs
  • .460 Steyr
  • .375 CheyTac
  • .416 Barrett
  • .408 CheyTac
  • .50 BMG
  • .55 Boys (WW2 anti tank rifle banned in other states for decades)

We’re not even going to try and rebut the errors, untrue statements, and irrelevant elements in the official announcement and subsequent public comments from McGowan and others on the issue; but we can confirm we  are co-ordinating with other shooting industry groups to form a strong response to this latest attack and will keep you updated as that develops.-Shooters Union

The only way the shooting organisations will defeat this madness is to investigate unified civil disobedience campaigns to keep their rifles.

Remember, the Constitutional validity of all Australian ‘governments’ has been proven by law researchers and former High Court Judge Sir Harry Gibbs as null and void. From Townsville Bureau


Obama’s Former WH Physician: Biden’s Cognitive Decline ‘Brings Us Closer to an All-Out War’ with Russia, China

Obama’s Former WH Physician: Biden’s Cognitive Decline ‘Brings Us Closer to an All-Out War’ with Russia, China

Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), the former White House physician during the Obama and Trump administrations, warned on Saturday that President Joe Biden’s cognitive decline is bringing the United States closer to an “all-out war” with Russia and China.

Jackson’s statement comes after Biden has continually grappled with memory failure in recent days, raising concerns that his cognitive decline will draw the U.S. into a war with China and Russia, two powers reportedly united against the United States in a proxy war for control of Ukraine’s eastern border.

“It’s TERRIFYING for our country that Biden is our commander-in-chief. He doesn’t know where he’s at half the time, and every day he brings us closer to an all-out war with Russia & China,” Jackson stated.

“His cognitive decline is going to get people KILLED!!” he added.

Notably, Biden has failed to disclose a cognitive test after last week’s yearly physical examination, which found the president suffers from a stiff gait and neuropathy in the feet. According to the Cleveland Clinic, “Neuropathy refers to any condition that affects the nerves outside your brain or spinal cord.”

Biden’s failure to disclose his mental acuity has worried lawmakers for some time. But since Biden’s previous physical in 2022, the U.S. appears to be closer to a kinetic war with China and Russia.

In the past year, the Biden administration has ratcheted up rhetoric, sanctions, and the transfer of U.S. military equipment to Ukraine for its border defense. The administration has imposed approximately 1,500 new and 750 amended sanctions and export controls against Russia, the State Department estimates. And lawmakers have earmarked more than $110 billion in taxpayer dollars to defend Ukraine’s border.

Critics claim the measures, along with the inflaming rhetoric, have caused the Russian conflict to escalate and prevent Russian President Vladimir Putin from an off-ramp to end the struggle without impacting his domestic political standing.

Biden’s decision to underwrite the defense of Ukrainian’s border contrasts with his decision not to send the U.S. border patrol similar defensive measures to prevent the invasion of the southern border.

Approximately 300,000 illegal migrants have slipped past border patrol and into the interior since the beginning of fiscal 2023. In fiscal year 2022, about two million migrants were encountered by the border patrol.

It is unclear why Biden has given more attention to the invasion of Ukraine than the invasion on the U.S. southern border. But Biden recently suggested during his remarks in Poland about the “invasion of Ukraine” that its border defense is critical to the safety of America.

“As we gather tonight, the world, in my view, is at an — at an inflection point.  The decisions we make over the next five years or so are going to determine and shape our lives for decades to come,” Biden said.

“That’s true for Americans,” he noted “It’s true for the people of the world.”

Establishment Media Question Biden’s 2024 Viability over Age, Blunders When Tired: ‘Brain Dead,’ ‘Mush,’ ‘Dementia’

Establishment Media Question Biden’s 2024 Viability over Age, Blunders When Tired: ‘Brain Dead,’ ‘Mush,’ ‘Dementia’

At least two establishment media outlets on Thursday questioned President Joe Biden’s 2024 viability due to his advanced age and continuous blunders.

The issues were raised on the same day the president will undergo a physical examination, as Breitbart News reported.

As rumors swirl Biden will launch a reelection campaign in April, the media appear to be taking the position Biden’s age and mental acuity could impact his chances of defeating the GOP nominee. One outlet phrased the White House’s attempt to play down the dilemma as a balancing act.

“That is leading to a focus on events that try to play up the president’s vitality, while trying to strike a balance in the schedule of a man who tends to make more blunders when tired,” CNN’s  and  wrote.

Biden, who is the oldest president in U.S. history at age 80, would remain so if he won reelection in 2024. If he runs for reelection and wins, he will be 86 by the end of his second term.

Many in the Democrat apparatus are privately worried the party is dismissing the dilemma and “looking ahead” to the nomination. “To many top Democratic operatives and officials looking ahead, Biden’s age is the top issue of his reelection campaign,” the CNN article warned.

Biden has pushed back on claims he is too old and unhealthy. In October, Biden vowed his mental ability and physical energy are perfectly fine. “I’m in good health. All my, everything physically about me is still functioning well, so you know, and mentally too,” Biden said.

But not all Democrat lawmakers agree. According to Politico Magazine‘s Johnathan Martin, Democrats are worried about Biden’s ability to win reelection and lead the Democrat Party to victory.

“Nobody wants to be the one to do something that would undermine the chances of a Democratic victory in 2024,” Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) told Martin. “Yet in quiet rooms the conversation is just the opposite — we could be at a higher risk if this path is cleared.”

A second lawmaker allegedly explained Biden should celebrate defeating former President Donald Trump in 2020 and ride off into the sunset with a so-called moral victory.

“[A] Democratic lawmaker who recalled speaking to Jill Biden and, hoping to plant a seed about a one-term declaration of victory, told her how her husband should be celebrated for saving democracy,” Martin recounted.

The lawmakers’ concerns are echoed by focus groups and polling where CNN reported Biden’s age is “constantly” brought up.

“Many veer toward assuming he must be ineffective or being puppeteered: ‘brain dead,’ ‘mush’ – ‘dementia’ is a word that comes up all the time,” one individual with knowledge of focus groups sessions said.

Recent polling supports CNN’s report. Sixty-four percent of independents doubt Biden’s mental fitness, along with 79 percent of Republicans and 27 percent of Democrats. Overall, 58 percent of respondents said they doubt Biden’s mental ability.

A second survey shows similar results, revealing less than 25 percent of voters strongly believe Biden is mentally fit, healthy, and stable. Fifty-eight percent of Americans believe he should at least take a cognitive test.

Since Biden assumed office, at least ten times he has appeared lost in public. Moreover, he also appears to consistently struggle with angry outbursts when peppered with direct questions — especially questions about his family’s international business dealings.

When a reporter questioned Biden in 2022 about why voters doubt his mental ability, health, and stability, he replied he had no clue.

“I have no idea,” Biden said. “I don’t believe the polls.”
