Ice floe for Joe? Peltola’s silence says ‘no’


Dr. Kevin O’Connor, the president’s personal doctor, invited a Washington D.C. neurologist to the White House in January for a meeting, the White House visitor logs show.

The New York Post discovered the meeting by reviewing the logs. In addition to Dr. Kevin Cannard, who is a Parkinson’s disease expert at Walter Reed Medical Center, two others convened in the White House residence clinic on Jan. 17, including cardiologist Dr. John E. Atwood of Walter Reed.

While national concerns swirl around Biden’s health, five Democrats in Congress have now come forward to tell the 81-year-old Biden to step aside from his reelection campaign. He continues to refuse.

Rep. Mary Peltola is not among those calling for Biden to drop. But ultimately, she’ll be given her instructions.

Last year, after the State of the Union Address, Peltola leaned on her Yupik background to excuse Biden: “In Yupik culture, we have deep respect for the wisdom of elders, and President Biden has used his experience to achieve bipartisan successes over the past two years.”

When Queen Elizabeth died, she also used the “elder” theme: “Yupiks honor our elders and hold them in the highest regard. Queen Elizabeth was the world’s premier elder. I’m mourning her passing today.”

In December, on Meet the Press, Peltola kept the theme going: “I really have a tremendous amount of respect for elders … I think that Joe Biden’s mental acuity is very, very on. He’s one of the smartest, sharpest people I’ve met in D.C. And as a Native person, I think age is a good thing. Wisdom and experience are a good thing. I think he leads with love and compassion, and I appreciate that in a leader.”

Three weeks later is when the Parkinson’s specialist showed up at the White House for a quiet meeting.

On Saturday, a seventh Democrat in the U.S. House effectively admitted that Biden can’t win. Minnesota Rep. Angie Craig posted her comments on X:

“As an elected leader, I feel a responsibility to be honest about what I believe, even when it’s hard to hear. President Biden is a good man & I appreciate his lifetime of service. But I believe he should step aside for the next generation of leadership,” Craig wrote. “This is not a decision I’ve come to lightly, but there is simply too much at stake to risk a second Donald Trump presidency. That’s why I respectfully call on President Biden to step aside as the Democratic nominee for a second term as President and allow for a new generation of leaders to step forward.”

In addition to Craig, Rep. Lloyd Dogged of Texas, Rep. Mike Quigley of Illinois, and Rep. Raul Grijalva of Arizona have said publicly that Biden must step aside, Two leaders of the Blue Dog Democrats — Rep. Jared Golden of Maine and Rep. Marie Gluesenkamp Perez, who have publicly said that Biden cannot win. Peltola, who co-chairs the Blue Dogs, has said nothing.

Yet, as the support crumbles around Biden, Alaskans may soon hear that “respect for elders” theme once again, as her staff crafts a message that will give her some plausible deniability.

After Biden’s disastrous performance at the debate with Donald Trump, Peltola remained in rural Alaska, campaigning in Kotzebue and Nome and walking in the Fourth of July parade in Ester, where she has supporters.


  1. Im pretty sure Yupik culture doesn’t include elder abuse.

    Nor does it include letting a mentally deficient elder make life a death decisions for the tribe.

    Respecting elders does not include letting them embarrass themselves for personal gain or abusing them for personal gain.

    If it does, it explains a lot about our little Mary

    • You are totally right on this one. Elders were respected because they were wise and trustworthy. They were totally for the tribe.

    • Nor does the Yupik culture advocate or accept child sex abuse. What does Mary Peltola think about Byron Mallott’s hook-up with underaged girls? Joe Biden’s abuse of young girls?
      Mary doesn’t represent all Native Alaskans. We can think for ourselves.

      • But, I have heard of sexual abuse in families and it is kept quiet because it is shameful. Many families are getting better about putting their foot down against the abuse. God Almighty knows all and sees all.

  2. I’m loving every minute of watching these brainwashed folks waking up and realizing they’ve been lied to all along. Got me a big bowl of popcorn and I’m going to enjoy watching the marxist’s implode!!!

  3. The word “palliative” literally means “relieving pain without addressing the underlying medical condition.” A palliative doctor might administer controlled amounts of pain-relieving or stress-reducing medications to a patient who would otherwise have to be uncomfortable for extended periods.

    Palliative care is therefore not actual medical treatment of the disease, but rather an attempt to improve the quality of life for someone who has contracted a grave illness. At the same time, palliative care is also intended to relieve the stress of family members who have become troubled watching their loved ones suffer. Taking the pain away from an ill person is intended to make life generally better for all involved.

    The conditions that might invite a sick person’s family to choose palliative care vary greatly, but some of the most commonly seen ones include:

    Congestive heart failure
    Kidney failure
    Alzheimer’s disease
    Parkinson’s disease
    Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
    Loss of a presidential debate

  4. She’s doing her best to steer clear of the YK Delta where she alienated her local tribes when she threw her support behind the massive Donlin Creek Gold Mine.

    She’s dodging life long personal friends that have come out publicly calling for her defeat after betraying local tribes that are adamant about stopping Donlin.

    Let’s face it, she’s never been trustable. When you watch her performance for over two decades, you already know Mary is all about Mary Sattler Kaspner Nelson Pelota.

    • I agree! I hope that the Bethel folks are waking up to Peltola and Hoffman’s agenda of destroying the natives.

  5. Peltola’s twisting of traditional respect for elders is disgusting. Over the past 30 years we’ve watched many Natives devolving into yuppies, with all the annoying attributes of self centerdness, ignorance, air of superiority, moral decrepitdness and inflated sense of elevated social stature. Biden was never known for wisdom, rather he was known as a repulsive, corrupt and stupid machine politician with an unhealthy proclivity for young children, including his own daughter. It wasn’t very long ago that most villages were orderly due to respect towards the elders’ authority which superseded dependence on outside courts or troopers who rightfully have always been viewed with suspicion. Peltola is the product and personification of the modern yuppie Native leader, squaking and bickering like ravens over whose personal families gain from allocating grants and welfare programs while the communities become lawless ghettos. She displays her disdain for Native people by praising the current minority exploiter in chief, Biden, and dispensing “free” alcohol to people, many homeless, that suffer from addiction, banished from their communities.

  6. It is very simple for Mary Peltola. She is a democrat first and foremost. She gets her messaging from her democrat handlers each and every day about how she should handle issues of interest to the party. Party first, Alaska second. Climate change BS? Mary is all for it, even at the expense of oil & gas projects vital to Alaska. It is time to vote Mary out!

  7. I love the irony the party of “democracy” is trying to figure out how to dump the person chosen by their voters.

    The Democrats hate democracy and everything to do with it.

  8. Suzanne says: “Yet, as the support crumbles around Biden, Alaskans may soon hear that “respect for elders” theme once again, as her staff crafts a message that will give her some plausible deniability.”

    Interesting global statement, that. Wasn’t Byron Mallott a respected elder? Perhaps a little less respect and a little more skepticism might have been in order. Cheers –

  9. Peltola couldn’t lead a thirsty horse to a bucket of water in the desert. A rank phony excuse for a congressperson.

  10. We are grateful that Peoples Federal Representative Peltola “honors our elders and hold them in the highest regard”.
    Surely this honor extends to “elders” tossed out of villages, dropped on Anchorage’s doorstep for others to support, no?

  11. So Peltola just told all of Alaska that she is a liar, everyone can see Joe has dementia.
    Why did they bring in a Parkinson’s expert when it’s obvious he has dementia???? Bait and switch, look over there

  12. Petola is American Indian! She continues to lie like all of her Demo Cronies. She was raised in Colorado. She wears the Yupik dress to get votes.
