Insanity Wrap #13: Joe Biden's Nasal Fantasy
This guy is a Presidential candidate?
[PJ Media Insanity Wrap] If Insanity Wrap hasn't written much about Joe Biden in recent weeks, it's because we prefer to leave alone any former public official who has since retreated to a quiet private life far from the public eye.

An old man who chooses to spend his declining years in his basement reading Twitter and sometimes chatting on Zoom with friends doesn't deserve anyone's scrutiny or mockery.

But then it was brought to our attention that the little-seen former vice president remains the Democrats' alleged presidential nominee.

Who knew?

At a recent virtual campaign appearance, here's what Biden had to say about his time as a patient ‐ presumably for his 1998 brain surgery ‐ at Walter Reed Medical Center:

"I had a nurse, nurses at Walter Reed hospital who would bend down and whisper in my ear, go home and get me pillows. They would make sure they'd actually, probably nothing ever taught in, you can't do it in the COVID time, but they'd actually breathe in my nostrils to make me move, to get me moving."

No, Joe, you didn't. They didn't.

Insanity Wrap would like to assure you, gentle reader, that this never happened.

It didn't happen before COVID, it isn't happening during COVID, and it won't happen after COVID.

No trained medical professional gets a patient up and moving by placing their mouth over the patient's nose and blowing.

But we do have questions.

• Does Biden believe this happened, that actual nurses basically inflated a United States senator through his nose?

• If Biden made up this story, why?

• If he believes it's true, why would he tell anyone?

• How can that person he's talking to just sit there and listen to this story as if it were true?

• Aren't you glad that mouth-to-nose resuscitation for grownups isn't a thing?

Finally, Insanity Wrap shudders to imagine what new readers we might gain from people conducting web searches for "nasal fantasy."

#5  Honestly, I think the Democrats know they can't beat Trump, and Biden's just a filler.

#6  /\ Methinks as well, much like McCain and Romney.

#7  Perhaps its more like Shooting the Moon in Hearts. If they get it, he could sign any nonsense put in front of him and after two years retire, and good luck getting any believable information from him.

So the VP gets a shot at a ten year run, and help us all if the VP is a true believer instead of this democrat opportunist.

The Brotherhood’s fifth column
[Al Ahram] The moment a significant presence of the Moslem Brüderbund group is found within a country is the moment a fifth column is created within that country.That has been the modus operandi of this Islamist group since its inception and throughout its spread across the world to over 80 countries over the course of the last century. The Moslem Brüderbund was founded by Hassan al-Banna, its cult-leader until his demise in 1949. His written works also became the guidelines of Islamists and murderous Moslems over the decades to come.

From the early days after its inception in 1928, the group promoted the idea of reviving the past Islamic caliphate, which saw its last days in The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the occupiers of Greek Asia Minor...
in 1923 with the establishment of the modern secular republic. Spreading the belief that Moslems cannot live as proper believers without a caliph ruling over them, the group then acted as an agent of mayhem in Egypt and across the Middle East from the early 1940s after having failed to persuade Egypt’s former king Farouk to become the next caliph of Moslems.

#1  Not that I disagree with this column, but something people have to understand is All media in the (non-Jewish) middle east is Government controlled. There was a brief period with the rise of Blogs where you could get the non-goverbment view. Those days a sadly long gone.

This also explains why Conspiracies are so popular there.
