Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg, John Fetterman, The Clintons. The list goes on and on. Where do these people come from? They’re all the weirdest individuals imaginable outside of the Arkham Lunatic Asylum. And yet they’re accepted and elected to high office by tens of millions of American voters. This alone is an indictment of our society. Only corruption so ingrained and pervasive as to be virtually the dominant force in our politics could explain Joe Biden and Kamala Harris being the President and Vice President of the United States.
Listen to Nancy Pelosi just once and you’re sure that she’s an inebriated dolt. Try to follow an answer that Harris gives to a direct question. It’s like some kind of scene from a Seinfeld episode where George Costanza is pretending to be an architect or a marine biologist. She’s a complete moron. Buttigieg is only nominally less stupid. Now we have an actual stroke victim pretending he’s capable of representing his state in the Senate. I guess compared to these characters the bald guy wearing the wig, dress and admiral’s hat is the normal one.
And finally, the pinnacle of our dysfunctional government menagerie, Joe Biden. His advancing dementia is actually his least offensive characteristic. He’s a congenital liar. He lies continuously and so outrageously that there’s no way for him to hide it. He lies to make himself look better. He lies to hide the incompetence of himself and his administration. He lies to further his personal gain. He lies to fool the American people about the terrible policies he wants to adopt. And sometimes I think he lies just to stay in practice.
Based on the things we’ve learned about him from his own family he’s a frightening deviant who showered with his teenaged daughter. He’s very credibly accused of having sexually assaulted a woman on his Senatorial staff in broad daylight. He sidles up to women and girls and sniffs their hair and fondles their shoulders even while being televised. And he’s the father and business partner of Hunter Biden, a crack-smoking bagman who has managed to make his father look slightly less insane by comparison. And this is the President of the United States of America.
So how the hell do we get rid of these people?
There is no answer to this question. Because there is no simple solution. The federal government is a Frankenstein’s Monster that has been created by well meaning people to solve problems like World War II and the Great Depression but instead is now uncontrollable and a menace to those it’s supposed to serve. The FBI, the other intelligence agencies and several other key agencies have been given carte blanche by such laws as the Patriot Act and the FISA court to control Americans at any level they choose to. Combine that with the data collection resources they’ve amassed and we have something even Stalin would have thought beyond the pale. So how exactly do you rein in this monster? It would take the concerted effort of the President and Congress along with the armed forces to dismantle our Deep State.
And don’t get me wrong. It’s worth doing. It’s the only way we could wrestle back our country. But who’s got that kind of power? We’d need a cadre of supermen to make it happen. Instead, we’ve got Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy. So as much as I’d like to imagine us draining the swamp, I realize that it would involve first uniting the country in a way that hasn’t happened since World War II. We’d need a supermajority in the Senate and House and we’d need a President who was personally unafraid to take on people who probably aren’t afraid to use assassination as a problem-solving technique.
But I’m game to see it done. I just think it’s important not to kid ourselves. Winning an off-year election or even winning the Congress and Presidency is far from sufficient to make this happen. Mitch McConnell is bought and sold. Half of the Congress is too. We’re so far from seeing anything happen that it’s hard to even imagine how it would. But let’s see it play out. If nothing else it’s fodder for a book. It’s like watching Rome in the time of Julius Caesar or possibly Caligula. The bad guys control so much of the playing field that it’s hard to even find the good guys. But let’s watch it unwind. At least we can watch the freak show go by. That’s good for a few laughs.
