Biden faces drug test demand

Published

on

Does President Donald Trump (or someone on his team) read The Gateway Pundit (TGP), or Wayne Allen Root? Or do great, or at least logical, minds think alike? Either way, Donald Trump, in a rally he held in Minnesota, made a fresh demand of “The Resident.” Earlier, Trump had agreed to debate Joe Biden, “any time, any place.” Now he demands that Biden submit to a drug test before any debate begins. He also revealed, for the first time, that he suspects – as does CNAV – that Biden was under the influence of some drug or drugs, possibly amphetamines, when he delivered the 2024 State of the Union address. This is an extraordinary demand – but then again, we live in extraordinary times. And a drug test demand could raise the stakes to an unimaginable level.

Source of the drug test demand

As CNAV noted yesterday, Wayne Allen Root, Assistant Editor at TGP, specifically warned President Trump not to debate Biden. Not, at least, without insisting on a drug test. Root suggested that Biden would cheat in five ways:

  1. Take a large dose of drugs, probably stimulants,
  2. Wear “ear buds” or some other earpiece radio-like device to receive instant prompts,
  3. Receive the debate questions in advance,
  4. Debate only on TV and/or cable networks with leftist-biased editorial boards and other content management teams, and
  5. Have moderators ready to slant decisions for his side – as Candy Crowley did for Barack Obama in his 2012 debate with Mitt Romney.

Root further suggested that the reason the Democrats want Trump to debate Biden before the Democratic National Convention is that they intend to replace him. Half of all conservative commentators anticipate a Convention replacement – which would defeat the purpose of primaries, but who cares?

The other half firmly believe that no other Democrat could even poll as well as does Biden. Better the senile dotard than the raving maniac, like Vice-President Harris, or the Impossible Dreamer, like Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.). And Michelle Obama? Come one now; that’s a man. So says everyone who, having seen “her” face, has discussed the matter with CNAV personally. Besides, we’ve had enough of Obama’s Third Term. No one but Klaus Ernst Stavro Blofeld Schwab wants to see an Obama Fourth.

Trump to Biden: I won’t have you high on the debate stage.

Last night – after attending his son Barron’s high-school commencement – Trump spoke to the Lincoln Reagan dinner in St. Paul, Minnesota. This is part of his new strategy of attacking Biden and the Democrats within their base. And then and there, Trump issued his demand.

I just wanna debate this guy, but you know – and I’m gonna demand a drug test too, by the way.

And why?

I don’t want him coming in like the State of the Union. He was high as a kite.

He went on to observe that Biden started off “jacked up” at first, but was “fading fast” toward the end.

Which is exactly what your editor said on Declarations of Truth the night after. He started off screaming at his opposition and anyone who opposed him. His performance was worse than his September 2022 pre-Midterm speech, in which he tried to sound like Cicero against Catiline. But beginning at 10:15 p.m. EST, he started to fade.

According to Jim Hoft, editor-in-chief of TGP, Trump first raised the suspicion of Biden on drugs last month. In fact The Daily Mail revealed that accusation, even to Trump saying then that Biden was “higher than a kite.” Trump wondered then whether the drug Biden was on, was cocaine. (The Secret Service did discover cocaine in a sandwich bag in a White House locker last year. No one ever identified the White House or other employee who is supposed to have brought it in.)

Trump had tried to insist on such a drug test before Presidential debates in 2020. In fact he told pundit Laura Ingraham that he suspected Biden of being “on some kind of enhancement.”

Could cocaine be responsible for the observed effects?

In fact, according to the BetterHealth Channel by the government of Australia’s Victoria State, cocaine could produce the observed effects. Cocaine produces “euphoria, exhilaration, and confidence,” probably why people start taking it. It also diminishes appetite, delivers a “burst of energy,” and increases libido. (Could this explain Biden’s habit of sniffing little girls’ hair in public?) And in high doses or overdoses, it produces agitation, paranoid ideation, and aggressive behavior.

If Biden is habituated to cocaine, that could explain everything the American public has observed. His pseudo-Ciceronian Speech and his 2024 State of the Union address both displayed paranoid ideation and aggressive postures. True, a President has speechwriters, and rarely writes his own copy. But that would merely indicate that his advisers suffer from Shared Paranoid Disorder, or else know to tailor their script to fit the mood they know he will be in. In any case, speechwriters do not normally write stage directions for their subjects to pump the air with balled-up fists.

Cocaine isn’t the only drug to produce agitation and paranoid and aggressive behavior in those who take it. Methamphetamine can do the same – and your editor has witnessed the effects during his core clinical clerkship in psychiatry. But the Secret Service has not found methamphetamine in the White House, and has found cocaine. Thus CNAV asks readers to apply Occam’s Razor.

Would a drug test suffice?

All this suggests that Trump should indeed demand a drug test of Biden before any debate begins – and insist. Even then the procedure presents problems. Cocaine breakdown products (“metabolites”) will persist in the urine for as long as three days after use. The problem is that a urine test takes one to two days to evaluate. A blood test will detect cocaine in roughly the same “window,” but can take a week to evaluate. In preparing for a debate, Trump might not be able to afford that kind of time. The reason: no test can detect a drug one takes after the test. “The Resident” could “juice up” on the same day, and probably would.

So a drug test might not enable Trump to disqualify Biden before the debate, because collecting a sample a day or two in advance would allow Biden plenty of time to take the drug afterward. But it would prove a mortifying embarrassment for results to turn positive afterward. The obvious risk is that Kamala Harris would be ready to collect Amendment XXV Section Four signatures the very day the laboratory announced a positive result. Then, even a Republican Congress would agree to install Harris as Acting President, even if she is a raving maniac.

But she’s probably on drugs herself, either cocaine or an opioid. The Democrats might not want to risk disqualifying Biden and Harris at the same time. If that happens, say hello to Acting President Johnson.

A high-stakes game

All of which to say: this proposed Presidential debate could become a high-stakes game, if Trump will press the matter. Trump should insist on a drug test two days in advance, and a test before they take the stage. Apart from the question of trying to avail oneself of the drug while avoiding advance disqualification, Biden could be addicted. Cocaine withdrawal would worsen his behavior even more. The public has observed confusion that could represent cocaine withdrawal. But in the extreme case he could look obviously tired, depressed, and anxious. Would he risk that, for appearances’ sake? He must abstain totally for at least three days to assure himself of a negative test.

Note: the usual turnaround times for pre-employment testing of civilian applicants do not apply to Presidents or Presidential candidates. This would be a “rush order.”

So the only remaining question is how serious Trump and his current advisers are about returning to the White House. If he is, he will refuse to take the stage without those drug tests. Of course, he must prepare to face an unknown opponent, if he manages to disqualify Biden two months before the Convention. But because it could mean taking down the President and Vice-President, it might be worth that risk.
