The Beatings Go On

It never ceases to amaze me just how different two people can look at the same evidence and come to completely different conclusions.

Over at Fox (and locally, the fanatical Trumpublickin’ bloggers) they have released the balloons, popped the champagne, and all but conferred sainthood and an assured second term for the babbling president.

“NO COLLUSION,” the chief exec twitters over and over, while vowing to sic the hounds of retribution upon his enemies in the Deep State. His followers scream for new investigations and prosecutions of the disloyal Federal BI, CIA and of course, Hillary and her lieutenants in the DNC.

Meanwhile, over at MSNBC and CNN, the heavily redacted Mueller Report just confirmed to the true believers that the administration was GUILTY of obstruction, and at the very least, passive collusion.Chris Matthews can barely spit out the word, IMPEACH, as his leg quivers in anticipation of the daily thrashing he will inflict on the infidels occupying his beloved White House. Lawyers and activists are lining upĀ  to appear on camera for the next eighteen months to register their complaints of misconduct and criminal behavior. Ratings will soar.

Speaker Pelosi will have little choice other than to proceed with endless hearings while the chanting grows louder from her left wing. There are too many who are ready to impeach without hard evidence, and others who will feel compelled to support their party or fall victim to a primary revolt.

But with the Senate in Republican hands, the chances for removing Trump from office are nil. As Donny has proven over the last two years, he really could murder someone in full view of the press and still command loyalty from his base. (It was justifiable homicide, your honor. The whore was a Democrat traitor. I had to kill her!)

While impeachment seems obvious to the hardcore left, the endless jihad to remove Trump could alienate voters if the screaming and thrashing continues unabated for the next year. Likewise, the hard right’s obsession with jailing their enemies could backfire on an electorate that is more concerned about jobs, healthcare and fixing potholes.

All the while, the dark forces in the Kremlin can’t believe their good fortune. They may live to see the United States dissolve into warring states, just as the Soviet Union did almost thirty years ago.

Or maybe a majority of Americans will tire of the radical two-party shenanigans and throw the bums out once and for all.

Scenes From The Class Struggle In Nevada City

My old pal Pam (Sibley) Wood posted a few old covers I did for the late, lamented Nevada City Independent. It only lasted a few years, but what a time we had!

Who can name this ancient comic strip character I lifted for this cover? (No fair googling!)

We went through this movie with Emgold and thought it was over. Ha! As long as there is gold in the ground, someone will try to try to bring it back to life.

Lost In The Jungle

This Steve Baird character obviously put his name on the ballot for State Senator just to confuse voters, and many voters complied. You just can’t legislate against stupidity.

The Eternal Festival

In May of 1970, myself and a couple thousand others participated in an illegal rock festival on Lime Kiln Road. It was little more than a local affair, drawing folks from around the foothills and Sacramento. There was a short blurb about it in Rolling Stone magazine, and one of the staff was amused by the name “Grass” Valley. This person (who wrote without a byline) wrote a satirical article about the Eternal Festival in Grass Valley, featuring every big name act in the biz and scheduled to run from May to Thanksgiving.

Well, of course I had to put in my two cents. This letter ran in Rolling Stone later in May…
