“JTF: Mueller and Jerry Nadler couldn’t do it, then Adam Schiff failed, and now it’s going back to Nadler? Is this the best the Democratic Party has to offer? Time for Hillary to give it another go” by Chef Roland Carl Davis
FALL SESSION 2019
BLOG POST #3,319 AT THE AICP-END
339 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020
After today’s post, it’s time to get drunk…
Arvin, CA 93203, 12-02-2019 Monday: Friends, welcome, good morning. We made it through Thanksgiving and are now working toward a successful Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Thanks to President Barack Obama, our economy is doing magnificent and that moron, Donald Trump, continues claiming credit for it. Will the embarrassment never end? Will the loser never experience any shame? Apparently not. The country continues undergoing the embarrassment on the national and international stages, it’s akin to having head lice all over one’s body. Shock of shocks.
There are days when I cannot fathom what the heck is going on in the country? We Democrats put our hopes on Robert S. Mueller III and his Russian collusion investigation and for some unknown yet troubling reason, nothing came of it. Was Mueller in the tank for Trump? If so, that does not bode well for the future of our nation or for the Democratic Party as it sounds the warning bells of the Deep State working for Trump and against us- that was never supposed to be the case.
Then, we found ourselves chomping at the bit when Jerrold Nadler sought to do the improbable and that was- in conjunction with Bob Mueller- to bring down this criminal president. He failed and we Democrats had our lunches eaten again as though we were wimps in grade school.
Then, we had Adam Schiff drag in one bureaucrat after another, bombarding them with question after question and although it sounded like the impeachment inquiry was going in our favor, each of the witnesses- when asked point blank by Republican scum like Devin Nunes ‘is there anything impeachable here’ all said, “NO,” emphatically. I mean, WTF, right? I can’t stand it, it let all the wind out of our sails, like we are in a Sargasso Sea of bull crap.
Now, this week, the ball is back in Jerrold Nadler’s House Judiciary Committee’s ballcourt, are you kidding? Why in the name of God would you give that former fat boy a second chance? So he can drag the party down less than a year out from the next election?
Speaker Pelosi, what the hell is going on? Are you working FOR Donald J. Trump and NOT AGAINST him? There are days when I haven’t a clue as to what side you are on because it sure seems not only to me but to many Americans that you haven’t a clue where the heck you are on any given day. You just go through the motions like some unseen puppet master- Donald Trump possibly- is manipulating your strings. Wake the hell up. Shake off the lethargy or let someone else take the gig because you are not taking us where we want to go.
I mean, when my colleagues suggest you are going soft because you are old and senile, I at first laughed at them and now I wonder…are the other old fogeys in the leadership covering for your declining brain power? Are they covering up the depletion of your gray matter? Are they overlooking deliveries of anti-Alzheimer’s drugs so you can make it through one more year before heading out to pasture? Please say it ain’t so but it sure is beginning to look that way.
Back in June of this year, I compared our obsession with dragging down Donald Trump as being akin to a man having a piece of strange on the other side of the Union Pacific tracks or even worse, in Lamont. Even though the philanderer understands it’s no good, that it’s going nowhere, and that it has the potential to destroy everything he knows and loves, he’s powerless to cut the hoochie loose. Here is exactly what I said:
“The problem is, the Democrats cannot let go of this appetizing piece of ass and it is putting the future of our party and our movement to bring equality and fairness to everyone in the nation in jeopardy. Enough is enough, folks, it’s time to sever the ties with the side piece so friends, let us do that now and begin working on 2020 rather than reliving the disappointment of 2016.” (Davis, 19-June-2019)
I then wrote some posts in the same week in which, I lambasted the losers seeking the nomination of our party while praising the few who might have some semblance of an opportunity to make Trump a one-term president. Since then, quite a few have fallen out like that moron, Beto, yet we have others getting into the scrum like Deval Patrick (who?) and Mike Bloomberg.
Don’t laugh at Bloomberg, folks, that man could end up being the nominee of our party. I have to say, I did not see this guy entering the race but there he is, the only man who does not sound like a crackpot, a blooming idiot, or a lying POS. Still, Bloomberg? Really? Is this what we are down to having as our choice? Hillary, it’s time for you to toss your hat back into the fray and this time do what you did back in 2016 and that is win the election-again- but this time to get into the flipping White House.
In the end, we still have sufficient time to determine who will carry our standard forward to victory and I, for one, hope that either Hillary will return for another go or some as yet unnamed dark horse will emerge from the pack to give us the much-needed win we require so as to maintain our sanity. Jimmy Carter, a second term? Never say never folks because he could win the nomination if he was so inclined.
Wait, I must be crazy, right? Cray-cray as they say? Possibly? Who knows? Possibly?
Time to get drunk- that thirty-year-old bottle of J & B is looking mighty good right now. See you tomorrow.

This is a facsimile of me as a young chef back in the 1960’s when I was working as a sous chef at a fine dining restaurant, the Victor Hugo, over on the coast around Newport, California. I began my career working as a pot washer at the age of 10, move to washing dishes in 1958, became a chef’s apprentice in 1961 and have been a career professional ever since. I am still involved in professional foodservice as a consultant for food and beverage professionals. Famed Bakersfield street artist Simone created the cartoonish figure of me, which appears to be ‘me’ but I hope I look better than how he portrayed me. You are the judge.

[iii] We began promoting the music of this famed Los Angeles, California, rock band on Wednesday, 24-October-2012 through Friday, 16-November-2012. Please seek out the music of this awesome band. Love was among the best of the 1960s.
