Voters in Texas’s Sixth Congressional District will take part in a special election next month to fill the seat vacated by the late Rep. Ron Wright (R., Texas), who succumbed to COVID-19 in February.
A Washington Free Beacon poll published over the weekend suggests that residents of the suburban Dallas district are divided as to which candidate they plan to support in the crowded field. A majority of registered voters, however, are skeptical about the state of President Joe Biden’s cognitive health.
According to the poll, 38 percent of registered voters in the district said Biden is likely suffering from dementia or some other cognitive ailment. An additional 15 percent said they didn’t know or refused to answer. That works out to a majority of 53 percent of voters who were unwilling to buy into the White House narrative surrounding the president’s physical and mental fitness to hold office.
Women over the age of 65, the demographic most likely to suffer from dementia, were among the most likely to say that Biden was stricken with a cognitive illness. Fifty percent said yes, compared with just 36 percent who said no and 12 percent who said they didn’t know.
Overall, 48 percent of registered voters said they didn’t think Biden was suffering from a cognitive ailment, even though they lack the medical expertise to make an informed assessment. Perhaps they were parroting the results of an outdated medical report, which found Biden to be a “healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old” who was fit to be president.
When the controversial report was released in 2019, former president Barack Obama’s longtime personal physician dismissed it as incomplete and expressed concern that Biden was “not a healthy guy.” It is unclear, however, if the doctor’s comments were motivated by medical science or by Obama’s aggressive campaign to prevent Biden from winning the Democratic nomination.
Despite being one of the most important stories of 2021, the mainstream media have largely refused to cover Biden’s physical and mental health, and the concerns raised by his inability to climb stairs or complete a coherent sentence.
Biden’s first official press conference in late March, for example, was widely applauded as a masterclass in presidential rhetoric. Upon closer analysis, however, Biden’s performance at the press conference was rather alarming from a cognitive health perspective. At the very least, it suggested voters are right to be concerned.

Sony has changed its decision and will now be keeping the PlayStation Store operational for PS3 and PS Vita devices.
As detailed on PlayStation.Blog, this is a reversal from its announcement in March 2021 that it would be closing down the PlayStation Store for PS3 and PSP on July 2, 2021, and the PSN store for the Vita on August 27, 2021.
In a letter to the community, Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO Jim Ryan said that it was “clear that we made the wrong decision here,” and that the stores for PS3 and PS Vita will continue to live on. However, PSP commerce functionality will still end on July 2, 2021.
“When we initially came to the decision to end purchasing support for PS3 and PS Vita, it was born out of a number of factors, including commerce support challenges for older devices and the ability for us to focus more of our resources on newer devices where a majority of our gamers are playing on,” Ryan wrote. “We see now that many of you are incredibly passionate about being able to continue purchasing classic games on PS3 and PS Vita for the foreseeable future, so I’m glad we were able to find a solution to continue operations.
“I’m glad that we can keep this piece of our history alive for gamers to enjoy, while we continue to create cutting-edge new game worlds for PS4, PS5, and the next generation of VR. Thank you for sharing your feedback with us – we’re always listening and appreciate the support from our PlayStation community.”
Sony’s change of course is similar to Microsoft’s decision to not change Xbox Live Gold pricing following outcry from the community, and is great news for those who still use these systems and for the preservation of video game history.
