Trending 3 weeks ago

NEWYou tin now perceive to Fox News articles!

Here is nan main point you request to cognize astir Joe Biden. He is 80 years old. He was calved successful 1942 successful nan first half of nan past century. The twelvemonth Biden was born, only 36% of American households had a telephone. Nearly half of them did not person indoor plumbing. 

Joe Biden turned 80 past November. This fall, he will beryllium 81. If Biden were to service a 2nd afloat word arsenic president, he would beryllium 86-years old. In different words, 4 years from 90.

These are not trivial facts astir Joe Biden. These are nan cardinal facts of Joe Biden's life. Joe Biden's property defines him and each of us. That's existent for each person. "Age is conscionable a number," you will perceive group say. But they are lying to themselves. Age is much than a number. Age is an look of nan halfway biologic reality of quality existence, which is that astatine immoderate point, it comes to a close. Age is nan measurement that we floor plan a progression from commencement to decease arsenic we walk from this world, arsenic billions earlier america have, and are replaced by others. They utilized to beryllium called nan rhythm of life. No 1 has ever changed it. No 1 ever will.


So our prime is betwixt accepting a reality we cannot change aliases denying that reality moreover exists. The Democratic Party has chosen nan latter. Tomorrow is March 1. That intends a twelvemonth from today, we'll beryllium successful nan mediate of statesmanlike superior season. Joe Biden has fixed each denotation that he plans to participate successful that and that his statement is firmly down him. The DNC has already changed nan superior almanac to make South Carolina, which is simply a instrumentality state, wherever nan result tin easy beryllium scripted, nan very first contest. And that was not an accident. It was done. It was changed to thief Joe Biden win.

Biden says he's powerfully considering moving again. Biden's wife, of course, says she very overmuch hopes he will run. And astir tellingly of all, nary mainstream Democrat has announced a tally against him. So arsenic of tonight, Joe Biden is in nan race for nan Democratic nomination. And arsenic of tonight, he will get nan nomination. 

And that's conscionable astonishing if you deliberation astir it. Joe Biden would beryllium 82 years aged connected Inauguration Day. That is 8 years older than nan mean life expectancy for men successful this country. So virtually everyone successful his precocious schoolhouse people will beryllium gone by then. But Joe Biden will beryllium conscionable opening his 2nd word arsenic President of nan United States.

Would that beryllium patient for America? Would it beryllium patient for Joe Biden? Of people not. It's awful; 82-year-old men should not beryllium moving countries. They're not beardown capable mentally aliases physically. Everybody knows that very much, including immoderate 82-year aged man you ask. The group astir Joe Biden surely cognize that. How could they not cognize that? They watch him and you do, too. Here's Joe Biden successful Warsaw, Poland, conscionable past week.

PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: The questions we look are arsenic elemental arsenic they were profound. Would we respond aliases would we look nan different way? Would we beryllium strong, aliases would we beryllium weak? Would beryllium - would each of our friends would beryllium agreed aliases divided?

So we've played clips for illustration that a cardinal times for you complete nan past fewer years. We tin play a cardinal much because Joe Biden talks for illustration that each day. At this point, it's really he talks. Joe Biden is losing his expertise to speak. It's not a secret. It's not thing we study from our confidential sources that are bringing to you for nan first clip coming exclusively. That is evident to nan full world.

And you'll astir apt sound for illustration that, too, if you make it to Joe Biden's age. We will also. It's not weird. It's natural. It's not an onslaught connected Joe Biden. Hardly. It's an observation. But because it's natural, we person been commanded to disregard it.

Don Lemon sewage suspended from his show astatine CNN precocious for suggesting that a statesmanlike campaigner successful her fifties was, quote, "past her prime." And that's odd, really. As a actual matter, what Don Lemon said is true. People successful their fifties are literally, surely physically, past their prime. That's a fact. Take it from personification who's 53. 

So why was that specified a arguable point? Of each nan demented things that Don Lemon has said complete nan years, noticing somebody's property is what blows up his career? Yes, because that simple, commonplace study - group weaken pinch property - points to a powerfulness that will everlastingly stay beyond quality authority, which is nan powerfulness to power time.

No matter really rich | we are, we cannot forestall ourselves from getting older. We tin bargain Botox and hairsbreadth plugs and facelifts. Joe Biden has bought each of that. But successful nan end, we degrade anyhow because we are not God. Accepting this truth that we are not God, moving wrong nan pre-ordained limits of nature, is nan cardinal to equilibrium and happiness successful this quality life. Ignoring that truth leads to insanity. Or successful nan lawsuit of modern America, it leads to nan trans schedule and ambiance theology. 

If you asked 100 honorable group to sanction things that quality beings cannot control, astir would database biologic activity and nan weather. You can't determine whether you're a boy aliases a girl. You are what you are born. Sorry. And nobody, effort arsenic we might, tin make a sunny day. You don't manufacture it, you person it. A sunny time either happens aliases it doesn't. It's not up to you. At best, we tin effort to foretell nan weather. We cannot find nan weather.

Since nan dawn of clip that has been truthful evident that almost nobody's ever mentioned it. But saying it retired large is now heresy. And that's because our activity people is astatine unfastened warfare pinch nature. Nature is nan last limit to their power. And truthful they dislike it. 

They show america they're successful complaint of quality biology. Even if DNA - "trans women are women," they screech. Meet our Lady Admiral. They brag astir really they now power nan weather. Too basking for you? Hold on, we'll alteration that pinch nan Green New Deal. And they show us, of course, that property nary longer matters. Joe Biden whitethorn unrecorded forever. We've sewage AI now. It's each a ridiculous fantasy. They person nary specified power. They can't moreover support nan electrical grid moving successful nan authorities of California.

And connected immoderate level, they cognize that. They cognize really constricted they are, which is why they go truthful panic successful nan look of beingness reality, because it's a reminder of their limits. Do you retrieve this autumn erstwhile that NBC reporter, a female called Dasha Burns, dared to constituent retired nan John Fetterman's stroke had damaged him? Well, of people it had damaged him. Everyone could spot it had damaged him. But to Fetterman, his woman and nan remainder of nan Democratic constitution and nan remainder of nan property corps, saying thing for illustration that retired large was much violative than immoderate obscenity. Here's an outraged Mrs. Fetterman.

GISELE FETTERMAN: What a disservice that she did to not only my husband, but to anyone facing a disablement and moving done it. And I don't cognize really location were not consequences, right? I mean, location are consequences for folks successful these positions who are immoderate of nan -isms. I mean, she was ableist.

"Well, she's an ableist," howled Giselle Fetterman because personification had correctly pointed retired that her hubby was nary longer capable because he had a stroke. In different words, reality intruded connected Mrs. Fetterman's fantasy, and therefore, reality itself had to beryllium shouted down and destroyed. You're seeing an atrocious batch of this attitude, that nonstop attitude, precocious from nan group successful charge. It's not a patient sign.


Wise leaders admit nan limits, nan inherent limits, of their power. They cognize that they're not successful power of much, actually, because nary 1 is. You tin determine what to person for breakfast. That's up to you. But you cannot determine to go a woman. You can't take to unrecorded to 100. You can't moreover take to deliberation intelligibly astatine 80. None of that is your choice, moreover if you're nan president.

Life, unfortunately, is simply a sexually transmitted, invariably fatal condition. That's not a bad thing. It's conscionable true. And erstwhile you contradict it, bad things happen. And they are.
