The American people have known there is a problem with Democrat Joe Biden’s mental health for some time, and his alarming behavior at Tuesday’s State Of The Union (SOTU) speech has added new urgency to address the problem for at least one US Rep, who is also a physician.
After watching Biden address the nation at a time of grave concern for national security, rising domestic crime, economic disaster- and the consequences of a lingering worldwide pandemic of problems, some people are growing even more uneasy about Biden’s control of our national power.
Some SOTU viewers noted that Biden’s gait looked familiar to someone who is suffering from a number of chronic maladies:

One poster responded with a link to a 2012 article from the leftist New York Times talking about the “gait” being connected to Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Disease.
From the New York Times article:
Footprints to Cognitive Decline and Alzheimer’s Are Seen in Gaite way people walk appears to speak volumes about the way they think, so much so that changes in an older person’s gait appear to be an early indicator of cognitive impairment, including Alzheimer’s disease.
Five studies presented at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Vancouver provide striking evidence that when a person’s walk gets slower or becomes more variable or less controlled, his cognitive function is also suffering.
Thinking skills like memory, planning activities or processing information decline almost in parallel with the ability to walk fluidly, these studies show.
In other words, the more trouble people have walking, the more trouble they have thinking.
“Changes in walking may predate actually observable cognitive changes in people who are on their way to developing dementia,” said Molly Wagster, chief of the National Institute on Aging’s behavioral and systems neuroscience branch. Experts said the studies could lead to developing a relatively simple tool that doctors could use to forecast, if not diagnose, possible Alzheimer’s disease.
“You can probably just watch them walk down the hall in your office and look for people who are starting to show deterioration in their gait and have no other explanation for it,” said William Thies, the chief medical and scientific officer for the Alzheimer’s Association. “If gait begins to deteriorate, we begin to have a conversation about how is your memory.”
Also from the Comments is a discussion between a number of people who claim to have a medical background.
” Check out Psychiatric Nursing. Note that he’s only walking in straight lines and he’s high-stepping. The swinging arms are robot-like. He’s been coached because he doesn’t know how to walk anymore,” one poster wrote in response to the video.
So there is a good reason to be alarmed.
Summit News reported on the reaction by the US Rep who wants an investigation into what is going on with Biden:
Former White House physician Ronny Jackson has called for Joe Biden to be subjected to an immediate cognitive examination after the president appeared to be lost on stage yet again.
Texas Congressman Jackson demanded an evaluation of Biden’s mental acuity after another clip showed Biden bumbling around in front of an audience at the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) training center.
“You know, uh…” Biden stammered before appearing to look confused.
He then looked vacant before placing down his microphone, picking it up again, and mumbling, “you guys over here.”
“WOW! What is going on with Biden here??? He’s TOTALLY lost. This man needs a cognitive exam NOW. There’s NO WAY he’s ok!!” Ronny Jackson (@RonnyJacksonTX) posted on Twitter on February 8, 2023.

During the same speech, Biden also struggled with reading words from his teleprompter.

Jackson, who served on the White House medical team in the mid-2000s and served as personal physician to both Barack Obama and Donald Trump, previously predicted that Biden wouldn’t finish his second term.
“Biden won’t finish his term. EVERYONE knows he’s unfit for the job. His mind is too far gone. This can’t go on any longer. He needs to RESIGN!” he asserted.
Jackson was previously scolded by Barack Obama for questioning Biden’s cognitive ability.
“I have to express my disappointment at the cheap shot you took at Joe Biden via Twitter,” Obama wrote in a letter, adding, “It was unprofessional and beneath the office that you once held. It was also disrespectful to me and the many friends you had in our administration.”
“You were the personal physician to the President of the United States as well as an admiral in the U.S. Navy,” Obama noted, asserting, “I expect better, and I hope upon reflection that you will expect more of yourself in the future.”
During another event last month in Springfield, Virginia, Biden joked about people thinking he was “stupid” before making yet another embarrassing verbal gaffe.
A poll conducted by Issues & Insights/TIPP last August found that 59 percent of Americans are concerned about President Biden’s mental health.

The mental decline is obvious to anyone who can tell the truth.
