Jack Nicholson is in trouble

AT 84, One of the greatest actors of our time is playing out his last scene, shut away in his Beverly Hills home with dementia.

When the scene fades to black, Jack will live on. More than 60 movies over half a century, including 12 Academy Award nominations — the most for a male actor in Academy history. He won Best Actor three times, for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest in 1976, Terms of Endearment in 1984, and As Good As It Gets in 1998.

Jack Nicholson has dementia.

Jack Nicholson has dementia.

One of his best films is Five Easy Pieces, the 1970 classic of the disillusioned misfit, the outsider, the guy who doesn’t fit in anywhere, and in the end says Fuckit and leaves his life behind in a highway rest stop.

Director Bob Rafelson made the picture for under $2-million and it earned more than $18-million at the box office.

Five Easy Pieces spoke to so many of us at that time in history and in our lives.

Moment of truth time in ‘Five Easy Pieces.’

The 1960s was a decade of assassinations — JFK in 1963, and Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King in 1968 — the Vietnam War, bloody protest and revolution, and to cap it off, the Manson slaughter in 1969 of beautiful young actress Sharon Tate and six others.

We all wanted out of the ‘60s. We wanted a new decade. And the 1970s lived up to our hopes. Nixon resigned in 1974, the Vietnam War ended in 1975, and we all partied wild and free in a decade of sex, drugs and some of the best music we ever heard.


Bobby Dupea, Jack’s character in Five Easy Pieces wanted out of the ‘60s too, out of his life, out of his relationship with the neurotic, tedious Rayette, played by Karen Black.

Bobby was a piano prodigy raised in a privileged family in the Pacific Northwest but he chucked it all away to see the world. He ended up working on an oil rig in California. When he learns his father has had a stroke he and Rayette drive north to visit his family.

There, in the midst of his past, his disillusionment with life become quietly unbearable.


On the drive back, Bobby stops for gas at a rest stop. Rayette goes into the cafe to get some snacks. Bobby goes into the men’s room. He looks at himself in the mirror, decides he can’t live this life any more. It’s fuckit time. He leaves his jacket in the men’s room, goes outside and hitches a ride north on a logging truck, leaving Rayette behind.

Just about all of us have wanted to bug out like that at one time or another — just leave your jacket and ID and tiresome girlfriend behind and hitch a ride to a new life.

Now Jack in real life appears to be coming to the end, but it’s been one hell of a ride.

Barack Obama said it himself

“Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to fuck things up.” — Barack Obama

And Robert Gates, Obama’s defense secretary, said this: Biden “has been wrong on nearly every major foreign-policy and national-security issue over the past four decades.” 

Those two damning statements were brought to mind by journalist Michael Goodwin in his weekend column.

He also noted the now-famous picture of Biden with head bowed and grasping his hands in desperation at a rare press conference last Thursday on the bombing deaths of 13 U.S. serviceman and women.

Obama outs Joe Biden

That picture, which was seen on television and in newspapers around the world showed a weak, almost defeated president. It is the picture of a frail man who is mentally unfit to lead.

UPDATE: 72 percent of Americans regret voting for Biden 

Dementia is a tragic illness. Many of us may suffer the same fate as we draw closer to the end of our lives.

It is also such a grave and serious illness that no one afflicted with it should be commander in chief with the lives of young servicemen and women in his hands.

It’s not Biden’s fault he is in a rapidly advancing stage of dementia — it may even specifically be Alzheimer’s, the White House is never going to tell us. Because of his illness, Biden should be pitied rather than scorned.

The blame for having a man who is incapable of making clear-headed decisions that affect the lives of every person on earth belongs initially to the Democratic Party, and ultimately to the Trump-hating voters who elected him. Desperate to dump Trump and regain the White House, the Democrats virtually handed him the nomination, knowing all too well he wasn’t up to the job. Anyone was better than Trump, right?

The blame also belongs to his wife, who continually props him up and points him in the right direction, knowing better than anyone that he is mentally unfit to be president.

None of that will change, as long as he can be propped up and steered towards a podium and continue to read from a teleprompter words that his handlers have written.

America and the world is in the hands of a ghost. A ghost with a nuclear arsenal that could blow this tiny planet to kingdom come.

A Dangerous game with the Nuclear Football


A confused man with recognizable and increasing dementia has the sole authority to launch a nuclear war.

Even members of his own Democrat party want Joe Biden to give up his access to America’s nuclear arsenal.

The corporate media refuse to report this very real danger. After all, they’re the ones who helped get him elected just to get rid of the evil monster Donald Trump.

Voters elected a man to the highest office in the land, and in fact the world, whose brain is seriously malfunctioning. [Video at bottom, Biden’s Brain] And they knew it.

A vote for Joe Biden was a act of selfish irresponsibility, motivated solely by a psychotic hatred for Trump. What America has now is a serious situation.

This elderly, frail, bewildered man, and this man alone, has the nuclear launch codes.

Even his own Democrats are terrified that he might wake up in the middle of the night in a haze of dementia and punch in a few buttons and BAROOM!

Biden and nuclear war.

But it’s a no-win situation. Democrats want to take the nuclear codes away from Biden and give them to Vice President Kamala Harris — conjuring up an even more nightmarish scenario. Hideously so.

Biden and nuclear war.
American freak show

The Democrat Party is furious that Biden didn’t inform Harris he was going to bomb Syria. The party’s ultimate goal is to wrest the presidency from Biden and put Harris in charge.

This has been the plan all along, of course, but Dems are anxious to speed up the process as Biden’s ‘cognitive skills’ get alarmingly worse.

But what seems to have been left out of the Dem Master plan is a large black briefcase.


The ‘football’ contains the codes to launch a nuclear war that would destroy life on earth.

Everywhere the president goes, the briefcase goes, carried by rotating U.S. military aides assigned to the White House.

If the president decides to use the briefcase, he/she would authenticate his/her identity by using constantly changing ‘Gold Codes’ printed on a card known as the ‘biscuit’ that the president carries at all times.

Once the identity is authenticated, the president would then give the order for a nuclear strike to the National Military Command Center in the Pentagon and to U.S. Strategic Command in Omaha, Nebraska.

And they would follow those orders.

Well, then, goldarn it, folks, we’ve got a ‘Dr Strangelove’ situation right there.
