Biden needs Lilly's new Alzheimer's treatment

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 5/4/2023 7:15:41 AM

President Trump enthusiastically touts his support of the Right to Try law, passed in May, 2018. Ironically, it may benefit one of his main political adversaries. In what is a glorious development for elders and their caregivers, Eli Lilly’s Alzheimer’s treatment donanemab slowed the disease’s progression in a pivotal phase 3 trial. A monthly antibody infusion reduced brain plaque associated with Alzheimer’s. In fact, patients in the trial demonstrated a 35% slower decline in memory. As pointed out by Barrons’ Josh Nathan-Kazis, the drug’s efficacy marks, “an extraordinary moment in the decades-long struggle to find treatments for Alzheimer’s.” Having missed the trial itself, Biden is a strong candidate

Fine. The medicine can slow the decline. But what if the patient has already declined? It won't bring back what's lost.

First of all, there is no proof that Joe's dementia is actually Alzheimer's which is a very specific form of disease. Because they refuse to do the tests required for a diagnosis, all we know is Joe is in severe mental decline. You can't give medication if you don't know what you are dealing with.

#2, I have no doubt that the doctors know exactly what form of dementia Xiden has - how else would they be able to concoct those cocktails he gets in Delaware every weekend? They know. They just won’t let anyone outside the family and his handlers in on the secret. In January I lost a sister in law to a nine year battle with Alzheimer’s. As is always the case for some, this new drug came too late. I’m happy for those who will benefit from it in the future.

My father's doctor told us the disease was most likely Alzheimer's. We asked how it was determined. The doctor said it was the best guess after adding all the symptoms, but that Alzheimer's could only be discovered during an autopsy. What has changed since 1990 in the field of Alzheimer's?

Any new treatment or medicine that becomes available gives me hope and is most encouraging; however, Destroyer in Chief Joe Biden doesn't deserve it.

A 35% decline is not a cure. Given the potential adverse effects, it likely isn’t even a worthwhile treatment. A 35% slowing of a terminal malignancy would be considered a treatment, even if the treatment were not worse than the disease. Medicine is full of treatments worse than the disease. Look at “blood letting”. And the various Covid lethal treatments. Too soon to be excited about this one, although we all (most of us anyway), hope for a longer healthy, mentally and physically, life journey.

Just now on radio news it was reported that the Resident has called a lid on the entire day--he's resting, not working today--and will check back in tomorrow, maybe. His mental decline is exceeded only by his physical decline. His chances of being "reelected" are excellent due to Republican flaccidity on election cheating, but his chances of living to 20 January 2029 are poor.

Good points being made that there is no recovery from mental decline which is essentially brain damage with various causes. Considering other symptoms we've seen (blood in the eye, making up stories out of whole cloth, etc.) it looks a lot like vascular dementia. Minor strokes occurring in different parts of the brain caused by circulatory problems, usually arteriosclerosis. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. It does say volumes about the people who continue to abuse the patient (and the American people) by propping up this obviously disabled person.

3 Damning Equations to Defeat Global Warming Zealots 2 replies

The true economic, social, and political cost of the measures proposed by governments (in the West only) to destroy their nations' businesses and jobs and to impoverish every household is becoming ever more visible. (snip) three equations — simple enough to be explained here for the general reader, yet devastating enough utterly to destroy the official climate change narrative — that will soon lay low the enemies of prosperity, democracy, and liberty who have, until now, gotten away with undermining the West, no less from within than from without, by their childishly apocalyptic climate change narrative.

Coming from the bubble of leftist propaganda that is CNN’s principal reason for being, of course she believed she would be the hero of the event.

He certainly got the better of Kaitlan Collins despite her rude, smug arrogance.

Could Tucker himself be releasing those
allegedly damning leaked videos?

Posted by Magnante 5/10/2023 4:54:07 AM Post Reply
Well, yet another supposedly “damning” video of Tucker Carlson got leaked to Media Matters for America (“MMFA”). As with the others, it shows Tucker when he’s not seated at his desk speaking to the audience but is, instead, conversing with those around him, whether in person, on the phone, or via text. MMFA, which despises Tucker Carlson, presumably released this material to show Tucker in a bad light. However, for conservatives, the videos give us a first-hand look at a real, thoughtful, funny, and intelligent man we’d love to meet for a beer. So I ask, mostly facetiously and a tiny bit seriously, is Tucker the man behind the leak
What Might Be Keeping Tucker Carlson Quiet 7 replies

In a previous post, I described the implications for all of us if Tucker Carlson has gagged himself by signing a "non-disparagement agreement" (NDA). But NDAs are not the only method available to unethical media companies, universities, churches, and others to silence those who speak a bit too much truth. Many contracts now contain Mandatory Arbitration (M.A.) clauses, often disguised, requiring that "employment disputes" be adjudicated in secret by private arbitrators. (snip) the dismissed have no recourse to publicity, because the M.A. keeps everything secret.
Judge in Trump’s ‘hush money’ trial
engages in blatant dissimulation

My assessment of the probability of Donald Trump receiving a fair trial on the highly questionable charges (falsifying business records) brought against him by Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg just plummeted to subterranean levels. The judge in the case just metaphorically peed on Trump’s leg and told him it was raining, to employ a venerable and colorful American expression. He issued a gag order and specified that he was not issuing a gag order and violated Trump’s First Amendment rights while claiming he didn’t violate his First Amendment rights. The technical name, albeit a less flamboyant one than the metaphor of micturition, is dissimulation.

According to the May 2 New York Times, on the last day of her testimony in her civil suit against Donald J. Trump alleging rape, E. Jean Carroll insisted that she was fired as advice columnist for Elle because President Trump called her a liar, not because she gave an excerpt of her book to rival New York magazine. This question immediately came to mind: would a New York City-based editor dismiss a columnist because Trump called her a liar? That question was answered by this follow-up question: In media circles, isn't criticism from Pres. Trump considered a badge of honor?

Someday, if America is saved, there may be a museum to memorialize the Covid dead. There will be a wing for those killed by the disease who died at home after being refused early treatment.

A scorched earth campaign against Tucker Carlson has been anticipated, and the first leak of behind-the-scenes video has dropped, fed to Soros-funded Media Matters, which long has been trying to get both Carlson and Fox News silenced. Someone with access to the video feed from Tucker Carlson’s home studios has leaked a video that they must have expected to be damaging to the former top-rated host, but which really damages the streaming video service, Fox Nation. If Carlson is to be blamed, it would be for being frank and honest in a private conversation.

Recently, while apologizing to "indigenous peoples" and denouncing Christians — without the all-important historical context — Pope Francis declared, "Never again can the Christian community allow itself to be infected by the idea that one culture is superior to others[.]" This — claiming all cultures are equal — is a dangerous position, not least as it leads to relativism and the abnegation of Truth. For most Western people today, the word culture conjures at best superficial differences — "exotic" dress or food.
