Unless the FBI drops a Bombshell atop Hillary Clinton, we are down to either Her or Donald Trump and the Question is, who is going to outsmart whom—the Criminal or the Loose Cannon?

King Kong vs. Godzilla
Century City, CA, 06-09-2016 Thursday: The final six primary elections (next week is the LAST one, Washington, D.C., for the Dems) went without a hitch this past Tuesday.  While I am surprised that Bernie Sanders did not do a better job here in the Golden State, he did win North Dakota and Montana leaving Hillary to clinch the nomination by winning California, South Dakota, and New Jersey.  I believe the GOP voted in those five states as well as in New Mexico and of course, Donald Trump swept all of them.  I say ‘good for him,’ too bad for Senator Sanders and congratulations Madam Clinton for being the first woman apparently to clinch the nomination of a major party. 
The reason I use the word ‘apparent’ should be ‘apparent’ to everyone as millions of people in this country expect that the FBI is going to drop a major slew of charges atop the Dragon Lady.  Everyone I know believes there is no flipping way the FBI cannot drop charges on Mrs. Clinton because if they fail to do so, no one will ever take them seriously again.  I think from its inception, the Federal Bureau of Investigation fought hard to remain firmly on the outside of politics and will continue to do so if it wants to retain the exalted status most Americans bestow upon it.
Here in MY part of California—I live in Pasadena and work in Century City—Democrats rule the day.  Judy Chu has been in office since January 03, 2013, and while she has done a somewhat good job of representing the people living in the district, Republicans seemingly do not count.  
Heck, in Los Angeles, NO one cares about Republicans because there are so few of them for whom a politician should concern oneself.  More Democrats flow in every day, most of them illegal, but it seems in this ‘borderless country’ of which, Secretary of State John F. Kerry dreams, if you can make it here, YOU can vote here. 
In our current election, the challenger of Ms. Chu, Jack Orswell, is a man who will meet her in the fall for the THIRD time.  Knowing that it is going to be his ‘hat trick’ shot at her, that should inform the reader that he lost the first two—2012 and 2014 respectively—and will most likely lose this one, too, when he meets her on November 08. 
We must face the facts that she earned 64.9-percent of the vote, Orswell earned 29.4-percent, and independent challenger, Tim Sweeney, 5.7-percent of the vote.  Even had Mr. Sweeney not run, Orswell would STILL have failed to win the necessary percentage at least to cause her to sweat. 
If you look at the electoral map for the 2016 primary here in California, you will see our age-old problem since the Democrats became omnipresent throughout the state.  From Sacramento on down to the Mexican border, Hillary Clinton won the vote over Bernie, leaving him to capture the loosely populated northern counties, one on the west around San Jose and several on the far eastern side of the state. 
Everywhere else, Mrs. Clinton won the vote, which tells us that the state is gone, it will never recover, and we will be the lifelong servants of Democrats and their thuggish illegal alien allies. 
As for Trump, he won everything but the question is will he be able to make California competitive in the General Election.  I know it is his propensity to shoot from the hip verbally that has caused widespread panic among the GOP establishment and which has led to the call for some shining knight in white armor to ride to the rescue of the party.  Folks, it is not going to happen, nor will it happen; the time for salvation is long gone and we have who we have—no one is coming to the rescue.  Wherever Trump takes us remains for us to see.
I know the GOP leadership trembles and quakes in their shoes at some of the things spilling out of the mouth of Donald Trump.  This issue with the ‘judge,’ the one hearing the lawsuits from a few unhappy campers, people I suspect are LOSERS who were inadequately educated to appreciate what the professors at Trump U were trying to teach them.  There are always losers out there who seek redress using the courts to do their dirty work and I would suspect that there are far more satisfied customers in the world today, graduates from Trump U then there are whining, complaining snivelers. 
In the end, I suspect this could be somewhat of another orchestrated election as have been all of the ones since 2000.  Like it or not, it seems there are ‘winners’ and there are ‘losers’ and we mostly know who is going to be what.  I knew for instance, that Al Gore was a LOSER, that John F. Kerry was another LOSER. 
Furthermore, I think we all knew John McCain was a BIG LOSER just as we knew Mitt Romney, well, we knew he was going to lose, too.  This time around, we have two unlikable candidates one more so than the other (I am talking about Donald Trump) while the other is a cold fish with a sexual predator for a husband.  Who will win?  I suspect Trump could if he controls his mouth but I believe that unless the FBI drops a load of bricks atop Madam Clinton, she will be the next president of the United States and the nation is going to get F***ED like it NEVER EVER HAS PRIOR to 2016. 
Please, leave your comments and let me know what you think; we will debate the issues in an educated and comfortable way instead of attempting to use kitchen knives on one another.
Oh, I have to say, I watched the debacle in Cleveland last night what with the Golden State Warriors attempting to win Game 3 of the NBA Finals and going down by a massive number of points.  I sometimes believe that the Warriors play around with other teams the way a cat would with a mouse, allowing them to get their hopes up and then beating the snot out of them. 
The reason I say this is that watching LeBron James sit on the bench during the last minutes of the game, I could discern the sense of bafflement, unease, and negative anticipation.  I saw in his eyes that even though they are pounding the living crud out of their opponents, those opponents are going to roar back and take them out just as they did last year. 
I hope Cleveland wins because here in Los Angeles, we love our Lakers (yuck-yuck) and the Clippers, too.  The final score of 120-90, the Cavs on top will cause them to build up their confidence only to see the Warriors roar back and knock them out of the running, two years in a row.         
Thank you,
Tiresias

MORE TO COME FROM THE ROLLING STONES



THURSDAY, JUNE 09, 2016
In 1996, the Rolling Stones released a unique live album for them, “The Rolling Stones Rock-and-Roll Circus.”  This album features an event that took place on December 11, 1968, in London, England.  The Rolling Stones had a concept to do a ‘rock-and-roll circus’ that featured other bands such as Jethro Tull (featuring future Black Sabbath founding member Tony Iommi playing some amazing slide guitar), the Who, and individual performers such as Eric Clapton, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, and Mick Jagger’s girlfriend at the time, Marianne Faithful as well as Taj Mahal.  One song, “No Expectations” features Brian Jones playing some of the best slide guitar any of us have ever heard—we miss him!  We love this CD, it is something of which, fans long heard but had no idea where the heck it was or if it would ever come out later.  Well, it came out in 1996, it is a classic slice from a wonderful time, the tail end of psychedelica, and the beginning of what would become a hard rock phase for most bands.  It has its ups-and-downs but is overall a very fine product and one we hope you will check out by using our link so you can go to Amazon.com and pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that works for you—you will enjoy it.
