The LORD is my Teleprompter and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me... except when He doesn't help me... and I'm sure He has His reasons....

Give Joe a break... He was quoting his palm reader plagiarizing King David.

mccullough said...

The Palmists are the guys who read Playboy.

Sebastian said...

At what point can we prosclaim him senile?

NYC JournoList said...

The palm reader is a top advisor of Joe’s. He predicted PA’s votes totals EXACTLY.

Sleepy Joe is not even an effective figurehead.

This is going to be a Howard Hughes presidency.

Joe Biden, that good Catholic, that very good Catholic. Visited the chapel at Planned Parenthood every day.*

*Because that's where Joe picked up his PP payoff envelopes, just behind the base of the BV Mary statue.

I'm surprised that no one on the Biden campaign thought that they might want to write things out phonetically for people like Biden, who have trouble reading a teleprompter. The Biden campaign has really done a bad job of making him look good.

It's time for the Dem rank and file to ask how this guy became the nominee all of a sudden. That he not be Trump is necessary, but hardly sufficient.

Can Of Cheese for Hunter said...

Biden reads his bible... never. "Pamlist" "Palmist???!?!!!"

Laughable.
He's a crook and a liar and his family is wealthy based on nothing but fraud.

Biden IS a fraud.

I haven’t really noticed any stuttering in Joe Biden. I do know he got "left back" in third grade. The thing is that he projects an image of a totally corrupt United States wherever he goes. That’s more embarrassing.

Let it be said clearly; this was the kind of thing that we laughed at Trump for uttering.

And yet Trump lost to this guy.

Sidney Powell's new job as teleprompter operator off to a shaky start.

Humperdink said...

Humiliated? A democrat? Are you kidding me? The word "humiliate" was stricken from the lefty dictionary when Bill Clinton was caught getting his jollies from an intern in the oval office.

Jersey Fled said...

Joe apparently stuttered when he was a child. At least he claims he did.

But he was apparently in remission until recently.

Kate said...

"Speechless", an underrated movie, has Michael Keaton, the GOP speechwriter for a senatorial race, rewrite the teleprompter for the Dem candidate. The guy, giving a speech, starts reciting the lyrics to "I've Been Working on the Railroad" with much brio. It's classic.

Joe Smith said...

"Joe apparently stuttered when he was a child. At least he claims he did."

And he's also as dumb as a post, so there's that.

Roughcoat said...

Doesn't matter. His supporters -- all those who voted for him -- don't care that he's a senile idiot. We can laugh at him all we want, but ... they're laughing at us. They just don't care.

Rabel said...

"The Biden campaign has really done a bad job of making him look good."

No. Considering what they had to work with they did a miraculous job.

Do we not have a right to know what psychotropic medications he is taking to deal with the anger and agitation and confusion that frequently accompany dementia. He appears and sounds sedated.

I suspect that they'll cancel the inauguration in favor of a televised swearing in and then a prime-time speech. The excuse will be the Kung Flu, but in reality it will be to control the image, since they don't want to risk either a breakdown by Biden, or the image of tens of thousands of Trump supporters disrupting the ceremony.

tim in vermont said...

If he stuttered as a child, but not during his very public adult life, and now he’s stuttering again, what does that tell you?

It’s sundown Joe! I am sure he will be ready for the proverbial three a.m. phone call though.

A palmist is a type of sorcerer. Maybe.

"To try to discover the future through palm reading, tarot cards, or some other form of fortunetelling, or to try to control the future through black magic, witchcraft, or sorcery violates the first commandment."

If given, it will clock in a 5 minutes tops.

Fernandinande said...

Rather than mispronunciation, maybe there was a typo in the written speech he was plodding through and he was too stupid to deal with it.

From my personal experience of dealing with several relatives who experienced/are experiencing dementia: you have to schedule their appearances, or parts of the day where they need to be functional in what I call the "clarity window". Get outside of that time of day and you get what you get, which most of the time isn't pretty. Guessing they got outside of Joe's clarity window for this bit, assuming it is not edited to make him look worse than he really is.

Paul said...

I think there is a story about lbj and the teleprompter.

My recollection is that halfway through a speech lbj read "you're on your own now" and there was no more text.

Think of the fun one could have hacking Joe's teleprompter.

You keep making these offers, but you never respond to my counteroffers to simply raise the stakes of our wager to whatever your "buyback" number is. It would be good for Althouse, because my simple demand is that you will satisfy your losing this bet by donating my winnings to the Althouse blog.

Give Mr Biden a break. He mispronounced a word. Given the theological nonsense I hear on a regular basis, Biden's gaffe is pretty minor.

This is the first time you have offered to raise the stakes, Chuck.

Not going to because l don't know who you are and you've never seemed particularly trustworthy.

I'll be surprised if you don't find some excuse not to payoff.

Remember the bet is $15 that president trump is inaugurated in January.

Not payable to the blog or anywhere else. Payablr to me in cash.

It is unlikely that whoever is really in charge would trust Joe with the stapler, much less the Button.

Oh. My. Heavens.

This is Joe Biden’s Thanksgiving Day message.

He has no idea what the Psalms are.

He calls them the “Palmists” and then looks confused.

So humiliating

---------------------------
NPR reported:

There were a few stumbles during Donald Trump's sojourn to Liberty University on Monday, January 18, 2016.

He mispronounced a book of the Bible. He cursed — twice. And on Martin Luther King Day, the GOP presidential candidate said he was honoring the slain civil-rights leader by dedicating to him the record crowds he says he drew for the school's opening convocation. (Students are required to attend.)

"We're going to protect Christianity. I can say that. I don't have to be politically correct," he thundered at the beginning of his speech at the conservative evangelical university [ran at that time by the sex scandal couple, Jerry Fallwell Jr and his hot wife, Becki].

Then he moved on to cite "Two Corinthians 3:17, that's the whole ballgame. . . . Is that the one you like?" Trump asked [and then he quoted the Liberty U. motto]. "Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."

#DiaperDon really meant Second Corinthians but he doesn't know anything about the bible except how to hold it up while inciting a riot at St. John's Episcopal Church near Lafayette Park and the White House.

I doubt that would help. I believe that Joe has Aphasia which affects the word production part of his brain.

It seems very likely that (in addition to aphasia) Joe has age related cognitive decline exacerbated by a history of aneurisms and a history of being a not so smart bullshitter.

He is probably taking a lot of blood thinners to preempt another aneurism. That is why he has to call a lid at 10 am.

Ferdinandande: Your posit of a typo unrecognized struck me as hilarious, and very plausible. But by either take: Proud Mr. Catholic knows squat about the Bible, or that he can't compensate for the most minor and obvious human error, the tell is very telling.

Balfegor said...

It's surprising because given his age and upbringing, he probably grew up hearing "psalms" and "psalteries" and reading them in the Bible. I wouldn't be surprised that someone in my generation didn't know the word "psalm," but my generation is a lot more secular, and its cultural reference points are different. More people probably know "hijab" than "wimple," for example.

Like others, I suspect this is just a symptom of cognitive decline.

I'm perplexed by a similar thought- what does Jill Biden get out of this? It seems clear to me that he's in a state of mental decline. Does she a) not see it, or, b) not believe it?
The next four years will be a wild ride; whomever it is that is actually running the country.

320Busdriver said...

Joe the pious Catholic

“A review of his previous tax returns show the Bidens’ adjusted gross income at $215,432 in 1998, the first year he has made available. It remained in that neighborhood until 2009, when they added about $55,000 annually in Social Security and pensions.

By Biden’s final years in office, the couple’s gross income totaled around $390,000 annually.

The tax returns showed they had almost no investment income, and they often reported few charitable contributions. For the 10 years preceding 2008, they donated an average of $369 annually to charity — or 0.1 percent of their adjusted gross income. The total increased when Biden served as vice president, with donations of book proceeds to charity, clothing to Goodwill and other contributions.“

Ding ding ding!

A normal Inauguration day is a grueling series of events for the new president, which is why it won't happen. Covid will be blamed, but if there is a vaccine out soon widely administered by the new year, the excuse will be laughable. It will be made nonetheless and the press will dutifully claim that covid is still an existential threat. The oath will be privately administered and the address will be prerecorded and edited. Still, I would expect a full panoply of inaugural balls, just not with the President present. After all, the grip and grin grifting must go on.

mockturtle said...

While here in the US we say, "Second Corinthians", it may interest some commenters here that the term "Two Corinthians" [or Two Thessalonians, Timothy, John, etc] is used by the likes of the eminent Dr. D.M. Lloyd-Jones, of Wales? I think it's common in parts of Scotland, too. But no one--no one except Biden--calls the Psalms 'Palms'.

Big Mike said...

I suppose he also pronounces the ‘p’ in “psychiatric ward,” which is where he gets treatment.

Wince said...

This is the kind of ongoing public display that's going to reinforce in the public mind that Biden won the presidency by artifice and fraud.

The media will try to say, like Chuck, this just proves how bad Trump was. But the fact is Trump got more votes than any prior candidate for the office, despite any fraud.

The question thus remains, what explains Biden's "rockstar" turnout with such an enthusiasm deficit?

Remember when Trump read "2 Corinthians" as "Two Corinthians"? Every major news station mocked him for it. I'm waiting for CNN, ABC, NBC, NYT and the rest to cover this with the same enthusiasm.

Matt Sablan said...

"I wonder if the new trolls will get tired of boasting and go away soon ?"

-- It's a weird boast, too. "After 4 years of never ending political warfare, we got'em. We got'em, just barely, and only by squeaking out a few counties, but by God, after 4 years, we got the win that mattered, even though we lost practically every other engagement. Granted, to do so, we lost a lot in the House. Possibly the Senate too. And local governments, yeah, took a bath there. But, we got the Bad Orange Man"

I'm not even much of a Trump guy, and I'm wondering: Was the cost really worth it?

So Slo Jo does get inagurated. He is in his first real policy meeting with his cabinet to discuss some real actual world crisis and decide what the US position and response will be. There is not teleprompter for Poor Ol Jo to read. Do the folks in the cabinet just do all of the discussing and deciding? Do they have a small moment of 'Oh Krap, what did we do?' when Slo Jo does start yammering incoherently away? What in heavens name is going to happen when he actually has to make a public appearance with some foreign dignitary and the word salad starts and the meds wear off and his depends can't take the load? Does the foreign dignitary just go along that everything is hunky dory becasause the cash in the envelope is really, really huge?

I mean the possibilities are pretty much endless. Or do the folks running the poor old phart just keep him under wraps 24/7 except for the rare, scripted and drugged up video response about whatever?

We will never see Joe give an off the cuff thirty or sixty minute impromptu presser. Poor guy has to study and practice ahead of time just to read from the teleprompter.

While the brief clips are amusing, and psycho leftists can tit for tat with Trumpisms, watching a speech from Joe in 2016 or before and the contrast with current incompetence is undeniably staggering.

He used to be a good bullshitter. Not particularly intelligent, but not totally stupid either. He was a master of the political ramble on, and on, and on.

This is why campaigns make a difference. Before the election people get to evaluate and decide, do I want this person in the White House for the next four years? This year is wacky and public opinion has a chance of a do over. Face it, progressives are pissed by Biden's choices and buyers' remorse is setting in. Can the media keep Biden propped up for four years? It's easier to tear someone down than prop someone up. Biden is an embarrassment and he's ultimately what is worse, he has bad judgement.

I'm beginning to think that people won't be so freaked out if the election fraud in key states is publicized and the election rigging is overturned.

Of course many people like Ann aren't there yet, preferring the illusion of calm and status quo to the tumult of overturning the tables in the Temple. Would they still choose Biden if that means accepting this massive horrible corruption of a presidential election? Certainly the Democratic and Republican establishment elites will only surrender their positions at the easy money trough if and when they sense a major backlash coming their way. The collapse of the Republic might make them a little nervous. There is only so much that media BS can do to keep people in line.

In 9th grade, back during the Watergate kerfuffle, I brought a news article in for our weekly news roundup. I read the title, which was about an administration official getting indicted.
The rest of the class laughed, because I pronounced "indicted" with a hard "C", never having heard it said aloud. And I had learned to read using phonics. This is the only time phonics has betrayed me, although I still don't know how to say "slough".

Joe Biden, on the other hand, has dementia and will not be president for long, if at all.
I'd bet on a stroke or blowout of his previous aneurism before January 20, but perhaps Schumer, Pelosi, and Bernie can get him to step down, before such medical problems are needed to remove him.

Suspect Joe actually believes he won fair and square. He does not read the same information we do. He is only aware of MSM info that is edited by his handlers to make him a believer.

On the other hand, he knows he is mentally slipping and it is probably frustrating and sometimes a bit scary to him. Struggling to remember words, names, or phrases like Grandma and Grandpa used to do.

robother said...

The stricken look on his face is the real tell. All Kamala's people have to do is cut off the teleprompter in a major public address (is the Inaugural too soon?) to create prima facie evidence of a need to invoke the 25th Amendment. I wonder if Bandy Lee has the Alzheimer's diagnosis already printed out, with only a date to be filled in.

If Trump manages to remain in office, and if Biden thereafter falters and declines, his decline will confirm that the Trump people weren't crazy or power-hungry.

Slow Joe will be pushed out by the Ho after the 2022 midterms where it is likely the House reverts Republican and would otherwise begin impeachment hearings on his corruption. He'll resign for "health reasons" and the D party elders will support that to supposedly give Kameltoe a couple legs up in the air for her campaign in 2024.

Unfortunately for the D elders, Kameltoe has even less appeal than Clinton. But the fraud machine will rev into even higher gear because all the polls will support D+17 leads because of her "historic" black female tokenism.

It might be too much even for the tech/media/deepstate mafia to fraud their way for Kameltoe to win in 2024.

>>or parts of the day where they need to be functional in what I call the "clarity window".

We just went through this a year or so ago with my mother in law. If you called around 9A or so, she could manage to carry a conversation, even if she was confused about who you were or where she was. After 6P or so, she was basically incoherent. The contrast was stark. Now, a year later, she needs help to eat. It's just heartbreakingly awful in every way.

If Joe regresses as my mother in law did, a year from now it will be shocking how much worse he is. It was surprising to us, in retrospect, how much we "missed" or "didn't realize", but the evidence was right there. We just didn't want to see it.

So if you think Joe is "stuttering", I understand why you want to think that. But he's not, and in a few months his most ardent supporters will have to admit the truth.

So if you think Joe is "stuttering", I understand why you want to think that. But he's not, and in a few months his most ardent supporters will have to admit the truth.


They won't care.

"Have to admit"? I wouldn't bet on that.

>>"Have to admit"? I wouldn't bet on that.

I suspect he could announce a formal diagnosis of dementia from 100 different doctors, post the PDF online, all while standing naked in an open bathrobe, and about 10% of his supporters would be able to explain why all of that was perfectly normal. That fringe element is beyond rationality... way beyond.

I was referring to the vast majority, who will see the truth eventually, but only long after it was screamingly obvious to everyone else.

PA Republican legislatures are starting the process for the legislature to appoint the electors.

One of the items Rudy highlighted was the Elections dept. mailed out 1.8Million absentee ballots, logged in 1.4 million returned ballots, but tabulated 2.5 million absentee ballots. Rudy said there were 700,000 mystery ballots; he was wrong, it's 1.1 million. Where did the 1.1 million absentee ballots come from to go from 1.4 million to 2.5 million?

Of a significant portion of this group, a discussion of the topic would start out "Yes, but..." followed by some sort of rationalization to excuse not having recognized what's as plain as the nose on their face. Because Trump.

It’s “One Corinthians” and “Two Corinthians” most of the time. Same with all numbered Bible books. But, when reading you an say “One Corinthians Two six through sixteen” and everyone familiar with the Bible will open to the right place. Alternatively, you can say “The first epistle of Paul to the Corinthians...” or “Paul the apostle” or in more “modern” congregations substitute letter for epistle. I’ve never heard in any service in any denomination I’ve attended say first or second Corinthians, always one and two.

Nevil Shute stuttered in English but not in French.

I recently worked up the courage to read "On The Beach" during the pandemic, saw the movie as a kid, but just read the book for the 1st time. It was OK.

I guess Nevil Shute is a neglected author. "In the Wet" is magnificent, and referenced International 14s and Dragons (nothing to you perhaps but cool for me). "Trustee from Toolroom" is a lot of fun.

1872 - Horace Greeley dies before the Electoral College votes and his electors scatter to a bunch of different candidates.

Something tells me, though that there will be more discipline and unity this time. There were a number of "wayward electors" last time in Washington State, Texas, Maine, and Hawaii. That probably won't happen this time, whatever else happens.

It looks like the actual phrase is "faithless electors," but I kind of like "wayward." Maybe they hang out in cheap dives and can be easily bought.

Those who miss Joe unplugged and off-script can get their dose with Kitty Kelley's 1974 Washingtonian profile. There's also a fawning 1970 interview here, but I don't feel like giving up my data to read it.

Assistant Village Idiot said...

With dementia he would pronounce the word correctly but have lost the thread of what it meant or what the context was. One reverts to old knowledge with dementia, and it is new things which are difficult.

He never knew this. In 1958 96% of America identified with some religious tradition. His family identified as Catholic. He attended, he went to CCD and confirmation, he has been to Mass and weddings and funerals a thousand times. But he never paid attention enough to learn this. It isn't even in the conversation of the people he has spent his life with. And Kamala accused the K of C of being a far-right organisation.

Hey, all you people who hate evangelicals (and I even agree with you about some of those criticisms), this is your other choice. These are the people you are counting on to let your worship continue as it has been understood for centuries, rather than reinterpreted for the SJW/seminary crowd.

Biden will resign before the end of his first term. I'm guessing 2022. Then Kamala, whom the media wanted all along, will be President.

Well at least Biden regularly attend church and doesn’t hold a bible up side down in a signal to the dark forces.

wildswan said...

As a Catholic Biden had heard of the Psalms. There is a Responsorial Psalm at every Mass. And Biden had heard the word pronounced correctly many times. He said "Palmist" because he didn't know what he was saying. This was supposed to be our inspiring unifying speech. And it showed us that someone else wrote the whole silly thing and that Biden was merely reading words which he did not comprehend. Not for the last time.

I'm Not Sure said...

"US President might be overkill, though."

For progressives, sex and skin color (and other things) are more important than ability. I'm pretty sure being competent is racist, anyway.

What an insult to Hughes, who as a young man had enough money to sit around and do nothing for the rest of his life. But he didn't. He took his fortune and tried to do amazing things (often failing ... he was a suspect businessman). He brought the world real advancements in aviation and Jane Russell's impressive cleaveage in The Outlaw.

One of my far lefty sisters, the eldest of them, sent me an email the other day titled, "The best we could do?" in which she expressed severe disappointment after watching a recorded statement delivered by Biden. My simply reply: this is what your and your fellow travelers irrational hatred of Trump produced. I added that the best we all can hope for is that he is boring and inconsequential.

Was this recorded or live? If it were recorded, it's hard to imagine no one in the room noticing the mispronunciation. Yet it's also hard to imagine him doing it live.

As I age I lose some spelling power, some grammar skills, and pronunciations sometimes come from my distant past. Spell check makes it worse.

The future of cybersecurity ends here! 💀 This is your chance to hire us to save your information 💰(Call us -Grey hat hackers)

Over the next year, there will be a massive surge in job opportunities and a shortage of talents like us to hire🤔 you can do your research 💀 so hire us now!

They are made in China and Germany mostly, very few made here, almost none, but they are manufactured, tremendous — if you are into this — tremendous fumes and gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world, right?

The Godfather said...

I don't buy the excuse that Biden's verbal f*ck-ups are due to his stuttering. There are several members of my extended family who have or had stuttering problems (including my father), and none of them ever mispronounced "psalm" or got a Ukrainian prosecutor fired for investigating his son's family.

The Godfather said...

But speaking of stuttering, do you remember this one:

The assistant cook on the freighter ran up to the Captain on the bridge, and he said. "Cap, cap, captain, the, the, the". And the Captain said, "Look, I know you stutter, young man, but I understand that you don't stutter when you sing. So whatever your message is for me, put it into a song, come back, and then I'll understand."
Two hours later the young man came back, and he sang:
"Should old acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind,
The Cook fell overboard before,
And he's 20 miles behind."

No, they are windmills.

I've been involved with nuclear and other alternative (renewable) energy since 1968.

I was a big fan of wind in the 70s & 80s because I thought they could evolve into something useful.

They can't.

I Always and purposely call them "windmills" to mock the stupidity (or ignorance) of people who think they may be a good idea. They are not and never will be.

Solar might be useful one day if a feasible storage system can be developed. I am dubious but do allow for a possibility.

Wind probably never.

Suspect Joe actually believes he won fair and square. He does not read the same information we do. He is only aware of MSM info that is edited by his handlers to make him a believer.

On the other hand, he knows he is mentally slipping and it is probably frustrating and sometimes a bit scary to him. Struggling to remember words, names, or phrases like Grandma and Grandpa used to do.

This is a truly amazing thing. Slurring Joe can't read very clearly, even when the teleprompter probably has billboard-sized lettering. Droopy Joe will not last a year in office before he is 25th-ed out.

John Henry this is what SCIENCE COMMUNITY says

Windmills and wind turbines both harness wind energy and put it to practical use. The difference is in how they do it: One is a machine with mechanics powered by the wind, the other generates electricity for use elsewhere.

Windmills
Windmills convert wind energy directly into mechanical energy for such tasks as milling grain--the source of the term--or pumping water, which is usually the purpose of windmills you see on farms.

Windmill Mechanism
The spinning vanes of a windmill turn a camshaft, which is connected by gears and rods to the machinery that does the work. All power is directed into the work

Brought to you by Sciencing
Wind Turbine
A wind turbine converts wind energy into electricity, which can then be used to power electrical equipment, stored in batteries or transmitted over power lines.

Wind Turbine Mechanism
A wind turbine has essentially the same parts as a simple electric motor, but it works in reverse: A motor uses electrical current to produce motion; a wind turbine uses motion to create electrical current.

Terminology
Though "windmill" is frequently used by laypeople to describe electricity-generating wind turbines, the wind power industry and windmill manufacturers both make a careful distinction between the terms.

Im not a scientist but it seems there is a definite distinction from scientists not personal terminology to carry a point?

Michael McNeil said...

And, of course, we should allow wind power manufacturers and the wind power industry to define our language — not.

mockturtle said...

DINKY, there is no such thing as 'the science community'. Or the 'scientific community'. You obviously never worked in the field of science. It is likely that you also use terms such as 'the black community' and 'the Hispanic community' to further sociological arguments when you have scant evidence to support them.
