“He had received his second Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine on July 7, six days before collapsing on the Coatesville Area High School football field on July 13, officials said.”

“Officials noted that no COVID-19 respiratory disease was found, and cardiac examination showed no inflammation or myocarditis.”

“while there were features of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a condition frequently associated with sudden death in young athletes, the diagnosis could not be definitively made or ruled out in this case”

“Testing included autopsy, toxicology, specialized cardiac pathology, neuropathology and genetic testing. Key features were an enlarged heart and a thickened heart muscle that showed scarring…toxicology was negative….genetic testing was negative”

In the days since President Joe Biden’s disastrous debate performance against Donald Trump, Democrats have gone into full panic mode.

They’ve realized they can no longer hide Biden’s cognitive failings from the American people. This comes after millions of Americans saw just how dire Biden’s mental state is during last Thursday’s debate.

Now, two new reports have come in that have Democrats panicking like never before. These reports show that the writing truly is on the wall for Biden and that he may not be able to recover from this.

"Special Ops: Lioness" actor Mike Heslin died suddenly at the age of 30. The young celebrity was allegedly in "perfect health" before dying from an "unexpected cardiac arrest" that doctors have "no explanation" for.

Heslin's sudden death was confirmed in an Instagram post by his husband – Scotty Dynamo.

"On July 2nd, my husband, best friend, and soulmate Mike Heslin passed away from an unexpected cardiac event after a week long battle in the hospital," Dynamo wrote. "Michael was young, in perfect health, and the doctors have no explanation for what happened."

Commentary

President Biden’s duty to the American people is to “faithfully execute” his office. As a public trustee, Biden took an oath to do what is right. He is a trustee of powers bestowed upon him by the Constitution in return for his promise to be dutiful.

Like every agent and trustee, Biden owes fiduciary duties to those who are served by his decisions. He owes them two duties: the duty of always acting with due care; and the duty of giving them his absolute loyalty, always putting their interests above his own.

A president’s failure to use due care or be loyal is ground for impeachment. Under our Constitution, impeachment for “high crimes and misdemeanors” is not a criminal proceeding. Rather, it is a civil proceeding to discharge from office one who has failed in his or her trusteeship.

Early in the interview Friday, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked President Joe Biden if he had watched his disastrous June 27th debate with Donald Trump that has created an existential crisis for the Biden campaign.

The president paused and appeared to search his memory. “I don’t think I did. No,” he said quietly.

Biden could be excused for wanting to put his awful debate performance in the rear view mirror. That was his purpose Friday in sitting down for the interview —  to try and quell the panic that has gripped the Democratic Party.

He didn’t succeed.

To be sure, the president turned in a more energetic performance than he had on that woeful debate night, when he sometimes appeared lost and incoherent. In the interview, he stoutly touted his record and assailed Trump’s character in a fashion his supporters had hoped he would on the debate stage.

Dr. Kevin R. Cannard, a Parkinson’s disease specialist, has visited the White House at least nine times in the last year, official White House visitor logs show.

The logs show Dr. Cannard traveled to the White House residence medical clinic each time. He met either with the president’s personal physician or the naval nurse who coordinates care for the president and other top officials, the logs show.

Dr. Cannard’s spate of visits began on July 28, 2023 and continued at least through March 28, 2024. The most recently released logs end on April 1, so it is not clear if Dr. Cannard has been to the White House more recently.

The logs do not note the purpose of Dr. Cannard’s visits.

A physician profile page for him notes he is a “neurologist and movement disorders specialist at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center” who researches treatments for “early phase Parkinson’s disease.” Walter Reed provides medical care to senior federal officials.

On the heels of his flub-filled Fourth of July, President Biden's Friday appearances did nothing to reverse his humiliating march to a seemingly inevitable exit from the 2024 presidential campaign. The day brought more head-scratching misstatements and garbled lines on the campaign trail, along with a much-anticipated primetime ABC interview that prominent Democrats called "sad" and "chilling."

Perhaps most significantly of all, however, more Democratic legislators called for Biden to leave the race -- and Virginia Sen. Mark Warner is reportedly organizing a meeting with his peers with a goal of building a united plea for Biden to quit.

Insiders have revealed the shocking comments Democrats made behind the scenes of his 'sad' 22-minute interview. 

The president sat down with ABC's George Stephanopoulos on Friday as part of a damage control strategy following his disastrous debate against Donald Trump last month.

But his muted performance once again failed to convince even those in his own party that he has the mental fortitude required for four more years. 

Words like 'heartbroken', 'doomed' and 'a f***king disaster' were all used by more than half a dozen Congress Democrats, NBC reports. 

Minnesota Rep Angie Craig, who is fighting for her seat in the battleground state, was so unconvinced she became the latest elected Democrat to call for Biden's withdrawal.

President Biden suggested that he can draw massive crowds — even bigger than former President Trump’s rallies — during a highly anticipated interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Friday.

In the days following last Thursday’s disastrous presidential debate, the Biden Campaign has been scrambling to assure voters that their candidate is capable of winning in November. The president has been attempting to fend off growing calls from Democrat lawmakers, donors and strategists to exit the race, which has led to a number of rare campaign rallies from Biden, who generally speaks to small crowds of party insiders.

During one such rally in Wisconsin, a seemingly energized and defiant Biden spoke to a sizable group of supporters. “In Wisconsin yesterday I made it clear: I plan to win this state and win this election.”

NATO will unveil a plan to help prepare Ukraine to assume the responsibilities of membership in the alliance during its annual summit in Washington, next week.

The deliverable is not a plan for membership outright, but will consist of “standing up an entire command” to ensure Ukraine can fully contribute to NATO in the event it does join, a senior Biden administration official told reporters on July 5.“Allies will reaffirm that Ukraine’s future is in NATO [and] will make significant new announcements about how we’re increasing NATO’s military, political, and financial support for Ukraine,” the official said.

The effort is part of a larger “bridge to membership” which is designed to help Ukraine assume military responsibilities within NATO “on day one” of its membership.

Claire's Observations:  What the hell does this codswallop  even actually mean in practical terms?!?  And of what does this "entire command" consist?!?

Folks, all I can hear in my ears right now, reading this, is a leitmotif used by the British comedian Eddie Izzard:  "Hang on a minute!!!!!!" when something just doesn't pass the "smell test".

A warning has been issued to all iPhone users after tech experts uncovered a new cyberattack targeting Apple IDs.

In this case it's an Apple ID. Your Apple ID is what really opens your phone and you can really think of it as like a master key," said Michael Nowatkowski, cyber institute director at Augusta University.

Here's how the scam works: cyber criminals will send you a text message, claiming to be from Apple. They will then ask you to click on a link to access an "important message" about iCloud.

Urgent warning for people with iPhones. Geoff Harris reports why this new cyberattack is a lot more clever than before, July 5, 2024. (TND)

You will click on a link and it will go to what appears to be a legitimate page but it's really just something that's been recreated," said Nowatkowski.

From there, the fake website will then ask users to hand over their Apple ID information.

That would give someone access to your contacts, your payment information," said Nowatkowski.

Ramnath Chellappa is a professor of information systems at Emory University. He said to better protect yourself, set up two-factor authentication that requires a password and verification code from an outside device.

If it's coming from some other device, then you have to provide a second level of verification before you're allowed to gain access to your own account," said Chellappa.

Political guru Sir John Curtice has revealed one rather grim statistic in amongst Labour’s historic victory. The acclaimed elections expert has closely analysed the numbers after Sir Keir Strarmer led the Labour landslide on Thursday. Writing for the Telegraph he discusses that Sir Keir's party’s win was far more about a total collapse in support for the Tories - with many voters switching to Reform UK - rather than people flocking to Labour. And as the Champagne popped for the new party running the country, he also pinpoints one sobering statistic for Sir Keir - as he failed to significantly increase support from Corbyn’s run as PM in 2019. He said that “voters firmly rejected the Conservatives” but added “they far from flocked to Labour instead”.

A simmering rift between Joe Biden's family and staff has finally boiled over after his disastrous debate performance last week.

The president blamed a cold and a generally 'bad night' for looking frail, confused, and struggling to finish sentences during the showdown with Donald Trump.

Biden defiantly declared he would contest the November 5 election and win, despite a push by some top Democrats to convince him to stand aside.

Fallout from the debate gave Biden's family, including his disgraced son Hunter, ammunition to settle old scores with his staff and be more involved.

Allies of Vice President Kamala Harris are reportedly upset and frustrated that she was not considered as a potential leader of the Democratic ticket after President Joe Biden’s widely criticized debate performance last week.

Citing Harris insiders, Politico reported that some of her allies bristled as the post-debate conversation among party members regarding a potential replacement for Biden included names like Govs. Gavin Newsom of California and Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, but not the VP. The rebuff came even as Harris was expected to defend her boss amid a tidal wave of criticism over his weak showing against a more assertive, more confident former President Donald Trump.

In the midst of a poor debate, multiple excuses, and a growing number of discontent Democrats, President Joe Biden has hit his lowest approval rating since becoming president.

According to a survey released Friday from FiveThirtyEight, Biden's job approval sits at 36%, while 57% of Americans disapprove of the president. The polling data from FiveThirtyEight is an aggregate of publicly available polls that adhere to strict criteria of methodology, sources, weighing criteria, and poll funding.

Democrats have found themselves in a state of perpetual crisis since Biden's shaky and halting performance at last week's debate sent his poll numbers plummeting. The latest FiveThirtyEight poll follows a new poll this week by CNN showing more than 50% of Biden's own party say the Democrats will have a better chance at winning in November with a different candidate.

A flash mob of roughly 70 looters ransacked a California gas station convenience store, which cost approximately $100,000 in losses. The owner said it took Oakland police about nine hours to respond to the looting.

Around 4:30 a.m. on Friday, a flash mob looted the 76 Gas Station & Mini Market near the San Francisco Bay Oakland International Airport.

The owner, Sam Mardaie, said there were two employees working at the time and the looting lasted around 40 minutes. The business was only offering window service at the time of the pillaging. However, the looters broke into the market through the front door.

“Shelves were ripped apart, all the grocery items were torn or stepped on or vandalized,” Mardaie told KTVU.

The New York Post reported that a parody social media account called "Chief Rabbi of Gaza Linda Goldstein" has fooled another squad member, this time pro-Palestinian Rep. Cori Bush.

The development came after Bush's reelection campaign considered a fundraiser with "Rabbi Linda Goldstein," which is a fake X account that deliberately posts anti-Israel sentiments to draw in those too ready to condemn the Jewish state.

The report noted that the fake social media account had previously fooled Bush's ally Rep. Jamaal Bowman. The fake account reached out to Team Bush late last month, hoping to pitch a fundraising idea.

The former Labour leader offered the Prime Minister a three-point solution to fight Reform UK. He said Sir Keir's focus should be on illegal migration with the introduction of digital identity cards, a robust approach to law and order, and avoiding "vulnerability on wokeism".

As many have since noted, it speaks to the sheer toxicity that the corrupt conglomerate of corporations, information gatekeepers and partisan special-interests within the Beltway.

The Biden debate scandal and subsequent fallout effectively proved that not only has lying within the political Establishment become systemic, but it makes no difference if it is even a credible lie.

There is an almost taunting quality to putting forth something utterly implausible and challenging people to question it, knowing they lack the institutional power to hold the liars accountable.

The new Prime Minister is expected to use a major summit at Blenheim Palace later this month to unofficially get the ball rolling. Sir Keir is said to want lower trade barriers and have more relaxed freedom of movement rules. EU sources believe he is willing to sign Britain up to some of Brussels's rules in exchange. But Mr Johnson warned against any renegotiation of the five-year pact he signed in 2020. The former prime minister told the Mail on Sunday: "The great sell-out begins. "Behind these harmless-sounding agreements is the reality that the UK will be accepting rules set by Brussels – no matter how onerous – with no UK say on the making of those rules. "We are on the road to serfdom under Starmer."

A White House staffer who has worked closely with President Joe Biden for years has revealed how the commander-in-chief's mental acuity has seemingly declined.

The senior White House official who worked with the Biden during his presidency, vice presidency and 2020 campaign told the New York Times he no longer believes the 81-year-old has what it takes to defeat Trump.

That official, who declined to be named so he could speak openly, said the president has shown more and more signs of his age in recent months - speaking more slowly, haltingly and quietly.

Biden has also appeared more fatigued in private, the staffer said, concluding that he should not continue to seek re-election.

Voters have been raising concerns about Joe Biden's age since he launched his 2019 bid for President at age 77.

But doctors tell DailyMail.com an alarming deterioration began in 2021.

After his disastrous performance in last week's debate, many have been left wondering how long the now-81-year-old's faculties have been diminished — and how long his team has known about it.

We asked several doctors to review a Mail time-lapse of the ailing President over the decades and also to consider his public appearances. 

The consensus was that there was a sharp decline both in his appearance and cognitive abilities beginning in 2021, according to the experts, who spoke on and off the record due to lingering fears their comments could cause reputational damage.

Andrea Lawful-Sanders, host of “The Source” on WURD in Philadelphia, told CNN that “the questions were sent to me for approval. I approved them.”

Long-time Democratic donor Whitney Tilson has claimed that President Joe Biden may step aside as the party’s nominee soon due to a significant drop in support. Speaking on CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront,” Tilson expressed his belief that Biden’s support within the Democratic Party has all but evaporated, particularly after his recent debate performance.

Tilson recounted that initially, many Democrats thought Biden’s debate issues were a one-time occurrence. However, he now finds it challenging to locate any supporters among donors and party members. “The dam has broken,” Tilson stated, noting that respect for Biden’s long career remains, but confidence in his ability to defeat Trump is lacking.

He shared that while public calls for Biden to step down are limited, many are privately advocating for his withdrawal to avoid solidifying his determination to stay in the race. The concerns have grown more pronounced as early post-debate polls indicate Trump’s lead over Biden is increasing.

President Joe Biden, in an effort to justify his poor performance in a recent debate, has made false claims about President Donald Trump. Biden’s remarks came during an ABC News interview with George Stephanopoulos on Friday, as he sought to address growing concerns within the Democratic Party about his ability to continue his presidential campaign.

Biden, 81, claimed that his debate struggles were due to interruptions from Trump, despite footage showing Trump standing silently as Biden stumbled over his words. The President described his debate performance as a “bad episode,” attributing it to exhaustion from being “sick” with what doctors identified as a “really bad cold.”

During the interview, Biden acknowledged that he was responsible for his debate preparation and performance, dismissing any notion that others were to blame. However, he falsely alleged that Trump was attempting to interrupt him during the debate, stating, “Even when I was answering a question, even though they turned his mic off, he was still shouting. And I let it distract me.”
