Where The Hell Am I? - Can President Joey Answer Correctly

There is a crime being committed at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue Washington, D.C., and the American people are the victims. We are being told that Joe Biden is the President, however, even the casual observer using any semblance of common sense has to admit that President Joey is not playing with a full deck, so to speak.

Trotting President Joey out to read a few sentences on a teleprompter and then trotting him back to the Oval Office or White House residence doesn't mean that he knows what the hell is going on.

We were promised transparency in the Biden administration but we aren’t allowed to ask President Joey questions that aren’t scripted. Remember the good old days when President Trump would answer questions for 20 minutes before getting on the presidential helicopter. Reporters could ask anything they wanted and they did, no matter how important, inane or disrespectful.

President Joey isn’t allowed to answer even the simplest questions after reading his brief remarks from the teleprompter. Trotting him out to justify the 1.9 trillion dollar stimulus boondoggle isn’t going to happen. Letting him answer questions about the worthless bombing we did in Syria isn’t going to happen. The bombing took place twelve days ago but would he even remember the who, what, when, where, why, and how of the attack at this point?

Is Jill Biden running the country? Is Kamala Harris running the country? The time has come to unleash President Joey and let him answer some questions about all the illegal aliens, many who have contracted the Chinese Wuhan virus, being allowed to roam the streets of America with no means of support , no food, no money, no shelter.

Thousands of illegal alien minors are being detained in tents, shipping containers with a small window, or cages beyond the legal time frame for releasing them. We deserve answers directly from President Joey. If he can do that, fine. If he can’t do that then we have a right to know who is behind the curtain pulling his strings.

The 25th Amendment was enacted partly because after President Woodrow Wilson's stroke in 1919, his condition was kept secret by his wife, Edith Wilson, and the White House physician, Cary T. Grayson. No one officially assumed his powers and duties and the President’s wife and his personal secretary (chief of staff), Joseph Patrick Tumulty, effectively ran the Oval office. Wilson's condition became public knowledge with only a few months remaining in his term and Congressional leaders didn’t pursue the matter.

Back in 2018, President Trump, as part of his annual check-up, took the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA). The Montreal Cognitive Assessment is a 30 point test designed as a rapid screening tool for mild cognitive dysfunction which will indicate a loss of memory and clear thinking ability that sometimes precedes dementia.

Maggie Fox, writing for NBC News on January 26, 2018 wrote:

“The 30-point test includes drawings of a lion and a rhinoceros, which patients must name. Test-takers are also asked to copy a simple line sketch of a cube; match the letter A to the number 1, the letter B to the number 2 and so on. They are asked to recall a list of five words and repeat very short lists of numbers forward and backward.

It also includes one of the best-known tests for early Alzheimer's disease -- the clock test, in which patients are asked to draw an analog clock face.

The exam assesses attention, planning, memory and visual skills, all of which deteriorate in people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or dementia. A score of 26 or lower indicates dementia.

A Cochrane Collaboration review of the test showed it detects 94 percent of people with dementia.”

It was reported that President Trump scored a perfect 30.

It is likely that Jill Biden along with Biden’s chief-of-staff, Ron Klain, and perhaps VP Kamala Harris are hiding President Joey’s mental acuity, or lack thereof, and the true state of his overall mental health.

The time has come for President Joey to take the test. President Joey can pass the test and prove everyone wrong. If not , President Joey should relinquish his office and join Chomp, I mean Champ, back in his Delaware basement.

The American people deserve someone they voted for who knows what planet he’s on when answering the 3 A.M phone call. No one voted for Jill Biden or Ron Klain.

The Elephant InThe Room

I just heard that General Motors is planning to be manufacturing only all electric vehicles by 2035. I know that it is very fashionable to jump on the electric vehicle bandwagon right now but there are some things that no one is talking about that trouble me.

President Joey has promised to build 500,000 charging stations which will solve a small, actually very small, portion of the fueling problem for electric vehicles. The logistics of getting the electricity to those stations is going to be a huge undertaking. Of course, tens of millions of homes will have to be retrofitted with individual charging stations.

In California, where they don’t produce enough electricity to serve their population on a very hot day already, can you imagine a few million vehicles plugging into the electric gird after work every day. Can you spell rationing. Perhaps a few nuclear power plants will solve their energy problem if they can and are willing to build them fast enough. Wind and solar just aren’t capable of producing enough reliable energy to sustain the huge need for that many cars in California, let alone the rest of the United Sates, 365 days a year.

Watching all the pundits praising electric vehicles, I believe they are all ignoring the elephant in the room, namely lithium. Right now the average life of a vehicle in the United Sates is probably between 5 and 10 years before they hit the junk yard. We currently have places to recycle old vehicles. Some vehicles are crushed and recycled that way. Some can be found in pick-a-part junkyards. Tires are another thing altogether. There are some attempts to recycle the old tires but they mostly are stored in huge piles and left to rot in the baking sun. Imagine hundreds of millions of pounds of old lithium batteries sitting around leaking into the local water table with nowhere to safely store them. The nationwide need for a place to safely store our nuclear waste is currently a huge problem but no one wants to store it in their backyard. I’m sure most of you are aware of the fight over Yucca Mountain? Where in the world are we going to find a home to safely store all the old lithium filled car batteries? Rest assured Nevada won’t take them.

In one of the few news articles that address the battery waste problem it says that in the UK, a pretty small country by any standard, based on the relatively small number of electric cars sold there in 2017, “researchers in the United Kingdom calculated that 250,000 metric tons, or half a million cubic meters, of unprocessed battery pack waste will result when these vehicles reach the end of their lives.”

The article goes on to say:

“Currently in the United Kingdom, there are no dedicated operating facilities for processing electric vehicle waste batteries. What batteries do get processed are exported and recycled using a pyrometallurgical method, which uses high temperatures to smelt the batteries and extract some reusable components. However, it’s wasteful and inefficient, which means some materials can’t be recovered, he said.

The batteries produced by different manufacturers vary widely and the paper calls for more standardization to allow easier recycling. Current designs also don’t lend themselves to easy deconstruction by hand or machine.”

The article goes on to say that we are currently capable of recycling 95% of old batteries currently used in our nasty combustion engine automobiles.

You can read more about the problem here.

To sum up the electric vehicle situation -

The lack of charging stations is a major hurdle....500,000 stations are not going to suffice.

Retrofitting tens of millions of homes with charging stations won't happen overnight.

The lack of enough clean energy to supply the charging stations is a major hurdle.

The need for a place to safely store all the old batteries hasn’t been addressed by anyone that I know of.

I am confident our brand spanking new visionary President, President Joey, has thought about all of this and he will have solutions for us just soon as he wakes up from his nap.
