Oh God. Oh God. We are down to Biden. I think. Bad. Bad. But maybe no worse than any of the other dwarves and surreal curiosities offering themselves as our managers Look, if you can bear it, at what we started with. Two billionaires, three women, two Jews, a black, a self-proclaimed Indian, two threshold octogenarians in mid petrification, an advocate of busing, a poofter, and an utterly unqualied small-town mayor with the additiona electoral handicap of being documentably intelligent. It’s nuts. What are we doing? At Biden’s age he probably had trilobites as house pets. Never mind, though, as he probably can’t remember them.

The only one fit to be seen in public with was Tulsi Gabbard, but she was a threat to military budgets and so snuffed like an unwanted candle.These frightening candidates have dropped out like rotten peaches from a tree until Stochastic Joe is the only dropping left undropped Oh help.

Lurking in the wings is Hillary, like some terrifying bat hanging by her feet in a cavern below the DNC. A bat with theropod instincts. I tell you, I am going to move to Mexico..

Are we daft? A nuclear-armed country of three hundred twenty-seven million with more problems than people, in desperate need of leadership, In the grip of an epidemic yet unable to design a virus test, and this dreck is the best we can do? You could find better in a New York bus station at three a.m. Maybe we should look there.

Meanwhile, in the Great Doublewide on Pennsylvania Avenue? Pompeo, an ambulatory clot of malign suet, apparently with a pudgy boy’s manhood problem, who wants war with Iran. The country is decaying like a corpse in August, everything going wrong, declining technologically, infrastructure antiquated–and we need a war with Iran. Why didn’t I think of that?

Mike Pence, a lethally boring Christian heretic who thinks he is about to be sucked up to heaven in the Rapture. We can only hope. As I understand it, the Rapture seems to be a theological vacuum cleaner, schloop. Perhaps he can advise God on avoiding The Virus.

And of course the gorgeous grand guacamaya hisself, the head parrot, golden-haired and baffled, who fluffs his plumes and talks like a confused child of twelve. In these transgender days, he may lay eggs.

Think Kaiser Bill’s court invited partying in Caligula’s basement.

But back to Fingers Joe the Geriatric Groper, cause for all to hide their daughters, who seems to teeter on the raw edge of senility and lies about how he hugged Nelson Mandela and marched in the civil rights movement. Yeeesh. Only in America does electing a dementia patient seem reasonable. And maybe it is, giver the alternative.

I mean seriously, think about it. The man apparently is suffering from Alzheimer’s, or at least Somesheimers and waiting for the rest. This is documented to the roots of its teeth. Yes. The Democrats are trying to elect a genuine, diagnosable empty skull and the Republicans want to stay with the Pompeo Posse of Ragheard Killers.

Are we kidding, I hope? These inverts, losers, clowns and embarrassments are going to play grrr-bowwow-woof with grownups like Putin and Xi Jinping?

Oh, I forgot. Elizabether “Tonto” Warren who seems to have traded her feathers and tomahawk for third-grade economics. Taken together, remind me of nothing so much as the debating society of a land-grant high school.

If Burbling Joe gets the nod, who will be the Veep? Will Hillary come flapping down with codpiece bulging? After all, she did get the popular vote the last time around.

None of these, note, is running on competence. It’s more like a competitive freak show. Maybe all of them will win. Americans don’t want competence. They want someone who isn’t threatening. Thus the Republicans work the Deplorable pump handle, Mekkamerkagrettagain!, while the Democrats open the googoo spigot fullbore, Everything free! Twice as free for the nonperforming!

Well then, how about Congress? The cream of democracy, right? Profound minds, products of the Enlightenment, just like Jefferson and Madison and Franklin, no?


A friend in a position to know estimates that ninety percent of the Senate doesn’t know where Burma is. The Senate is supposed to be up-demo, aristocratic, and scholarly, not like the rabble in the 435-member bus station. They don’t know where freaking Burma is? You know, the house that does, like, foreign policy?

Thing is, the whole journalistic establishment colludes to hide the blank ignorance of much of Congress, and their own. It’s a set-up. Reporters ask, “Senator, what do you think of Afghanistan?” To which he answers, “Well, I think we need to reassess our options and consider alternative strategies that will enhance national security and foster democracy.”


They do not ask, “Senator, where is Afghanistan?” or “What is the population of Russia? Can you name the countries littoral to the Caspian Sea? Can you tell us why this might be important?”

The public? Says the National Science Foundation, 26% of the public think the sun goes around the earth, 74% can’t name the three branches of government. The Education Department says that 14% can’t read, which means that a hell of a lot more don’t.

Isaac Asimov nails it: ““There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.’”

Exactly. If we actually wanted to essay democracy in America, which we don’t, we would mandate a voting age of twenty-five and require a literacy test. Fifty questions, published in advance. As lagniappe we might demand some minor evidence of good character, even to the extreme of elimiinating those convicted of armed robbery, rape, drug dealing. Don’t hold your breath. That curious Pelosi woman wants to enfranchise children of sixteen.

It really doesn’t matter. American democracy, as we curiously persist in calling it, is as finely designed as a Swiss watch to keep the national reins in the hands of reliable hacks. Biden, Warren, Bloomberg, Clitler should she run again, or Pence or Pompeo, or any number of collusive footsoldiers. These would make appropriate noises about trivial issues like abortion, gun control, and the pressing question of transgender confused. They would also do what they were elected to do: protect the military budget, waffle on the wars, prevent investigation of Wall Street, and collaborate with the big corporations in fleecing the public. This, beyond doubt, we will get.

    Here’s your fearless leader AMLO kissing babies and acting like a complete pendejo.

    Good news: Mexico now wants the wall. Win win!

  2. Fred,

    Another absolute barn burner of an article but missing one important recommendation or ingredient.

    Given the absolute slew of incompetent, dishonest and generally stupid presidents in the last 75 years, the country should forego the upcoming 2020 presidential elections. Clear out the current gang of xenophobic, racist, dip shit ding dongs and install a regent and vice-regent to lead the country over the next 4 years.

    Their job will be a difficult one to achieve but an easy one to define. Get this once great country back on some kind of stable footing which features many of the following – with more issues waiting in the wings:

    * Reduce the military and costs substantially
    * Stop bullying or threatening other sovereign nations
    * Station all military troops on American soil only – bring the 200,000+ military home
    * Only Congress can declare war in an emergency – everything else by referendum
    * Improve education standards exponentially
    * Spend whatever it takes to improve infrastructure – roads, bridges and high speed rail
    * Ensure that the highest medical expenditures in the world provide medical benefits to everyone
    * Fix a badly broken immigration system
    * Make it punishable by heavy fines and prison for any lobbyists to exist henceforth in the country
    * Stop the high prison incarceration rates
    * Do something about firearms
    * Outlaw such organizations as the KKK, NRA, evangelical churches, right and left wing disruptions
    * Retire all politicians from any elections beyond the age of 65.
    * Fix the Electoral College which no longer works
    * Introduce a nationwide referendum process in which the people/taxpayer decide important issues
    * Do not let the Executive Branch appoint members to the Judicial Branch
    * Legalize softer drugs to cut out and reduce the criminal element
    * Re.join the international community positively in their endeavors

    Just a few to chew on because if something isn’t done and quickly, the type of supreme leader who is in power now could end up leading the country into a civil war. But this time it will be a nuclear one! He has made the once proud United States of America the laughing stock of the world. Let’s get this changed and quickly!!!

    The current presidential possibilities for the election in November are not smart enough to accomplish any of the above.

    FRED WROTE: “14% can’t red”. AND FRED CAN’T WRITE.

    Fred, do you proof read before posting? You have multiple errors.

    Yes, Biden is a senile crook. All these clowns are owned and operated by the Judaists, esp. Soros, who owns and operated the democratic party.

  5. Fred,
    Don’t knock American “anti-intellectualism”. When we look at how full of shit our “ivory towers” are, our fake news ersatz culture, how divorced from reality the “experts” are, we can’t help it. I can get more sense out of an honest tradesman than any product of our definitely higher “edjumacashunal” system.

  6. Freda,
    I look forward to better gun control. My groupings are not nearly as tight as I would like them to be. 😉

    Weapons laws are fundamentally immoral. They deny individuals the means with which to defend themselves. Who are you to decide on the needs of others? Do you live or work in a high-crime area?

  14. Anonymous[138] • Disclaimer says:

    Hey, Fred. I think you mean “assay” instead of “essay”, but neither one makes complete sense.

  15. @Rational

    I’m a long-time reader of The Fred since, oh, the early ’80s or so. I have to admit, his spelling has gone downhill a little since he quit working for organizations that had dedicated proofreaders. His laser-like focus on the problems and his ability to coin marvellously accurate words and phrases, not so. It remains wondrously accurate.

    That said, I for one am willing to overlook a few spelling and grammar mistakes for a writer who is a little older than we used to be, who is probably suffering from hand injuries and conditions similar to mine after a lifetime in military service, and who is almost blind due to V.A. incompetence enabled by politically-correct hiring, and who thereafter has to rely on Apple/Microsoft/online spell-checkers.

    But then, I read his articles for content, not form.

  16. This being Sunday, I just watched the first hour of the Biden-Bernie debate, and just couldn’t take any more. Smirking Joe was surprisingly holding his own, and I got tired of waiting for him to blow up. He had to have been well prepared. Maybe CNN slipped him the questions, as they did for Hillary. If Trump is defeated it matters not which of them is elected. The country is finished anyway.

  17. @willem1

    Maybe Fred was channeling Mr. Peterson on Seinfeld who said “it will always be Burma to me.”

  18. Oh God. Oh God. We are down to Biden.

    There are many other “we”s all over this essay. I thought we were rid of you. Are you back?!

    The only remaining Republican aspect of America is the Oval Office. Aside from that, “no mother need fear for her son’s life every time he robs a store or commits homicide.” 

    Socialist States consume. They have neither perspective nor responsibilities. Socialism assures its own survival amidst all enemies through conquest, looting, and enslavement of everybody within reach. Then, having created its own limitless Hell, Socialism turns inward to burn heretics and purge disloyal leadership.

    Trump constructed more than 180 skyscrapers and major properties worldwide within every cesspool of political, military, religious, organized crime, Media, and civil corruption. Trump is the toughest SOB on the planet – and the most experienced. And he’s ours.

    Buckley’s first 400?/1,000? names in the phone book would do better than the personages you correctly describe as losers, with the exception of JFK and RR. But “regent” by itself is a slippery concept with not much to recommend it, especially without some kind of known retirement date. Betting on another Cincinnatus is probably unwise. Can you plow? You might be a possible candidate to save us.

    I’m not familiar with the concept of a “meaningful” war. Vicious, stupid, reckless, dishonest, unnecessary, and ruinous wars, most assuredly.

    …actually, come to think of it, they did bury Bernie too. The last two weeks were rather well choreographed.

    He only got out of the bag because he was allowed to run in 2016 as the token extremist to give Hillary Clinton’s coronation an aura of legitimacy. The assumption must have been that he was just too far left to get traction.

    Bernie is as anti-White as they get.

    He makes ZERO effort to defend peaceful White rights advocates when they’re violently attacked by Antifa, even as anti-White mayors routinely order their police departments to “stand down” and the Jewdicial system throws the book at the Whites. Bernie actually has violent Antifa-types as organizers in his campaign.

    Israel lobby war criminals are arranging Bernie’s defeat because he make some effort to defend Palestinians, which threatens the further expansion of “Greater Israel.”

    Joe “I’m a Zionist!” Biden, despite his clumsy posturing as a tough guy, is a push-over whose mind seems to be moving out, making it increasingly unlikely he’d finish his first term even if he won.

    Punishing lobbyists? They have more money than you or I do.

    Bring the US military home…its happening. Slowly. The US public is weary of war. It accomplishes nothing.

    Referendum? There is no longer any draft and therefore does not affect the wealthy or even middle-class.

    Medical benefits to everyone? Yes, well, the eternal debate. Middle-class tax payers balk at payingthe costs of looking after crack ho prostitutes who catch HIV in action who never held a decent job. See, socialism only works in homogeneous countries where the society sees itself as a family.

    Do something about firearms? Sure, but they won’t stop gun crime. Your average black convicted felon cannot legally own an AR-15 or 9mm tech. Gun dealing is an illegal enterprise. Gangs will have guns no matter what. They’ll shoot one another no matter what.

    Outlaw the KKK? Fine. Crips, MS-13 and all actual criminal gangs will continue to exist. A bunch of pudgy white hicks in sheets out in the country are no threat to anyone.

    If “doing something” about firearms is such a popular cause there should be no difficulty in getting the required majorities of congress and the states to repeal the second amendment.
