Wind shifts - 09-30-2019, 08:31 AM

I was driving down Hollywood Blvd. yesterday eastbound and just before Western saw a sign that indicated the location of the field office of Adam Schiff.

It looks like it's in the 20s brick building where the old Hollywood Billiards was located in the basement.

The Building has been refurbished and looks good.

Funny how hustlers are attracted to that location. Adam Schiff is my congressional representative.

That corner of Western and Hollywood Blvd. used to be one of the worst intersections in the entire city, back in the day.

In the 1950s, it still was a great neighborhood. That is when the notorious Hollywood Jack was the owner of Hollywood Billiards. He lost his interest in HB according to legend, gambling.

After the 50s the area started to spiral downward. Man that was one crazy pool hall.

It's wild how they draw the congressional districts. Schiff is the representative for the 28th district.

There are a lot of desperate elements in 28th district, the link takes you to a map.

It's not remotely close to the wildest borders I've seen for a district, but I know those little spur areas and in-and-out cut lines are done for a purpose.

So does it include all of beautiful downtown Burbank, or just a part of it?

Was reading Schiff's wiki page and he is a triathlete and writes screenplays in his spare time.

He also voted for the war in Iraq and every increase in defense spending put in front of him.

He is a vegan.

Given that he writes screen plays we can see where he learned to take liberties with reality, like his little stunt in front of his committee, putting words in Trump's mouth.

He went to Stanford and Harvard law school. For all his heavy lifting his eyes give away when he is lying.

That is his weakness. He looks just like Mr. Potato Head and his eyes are huge and he opens them very wide when he is prevaricating, which is often.

He has wall eyes.

He was a federal prosecutor as well. He is a formidable adversary but his weakness is in the veracity department.

This is his moment politically and he wants to make the most of it and has taken a lot of risks.

Sure, but he may have no choice, under the state and local fascist dietary laws.

Burbank is the old haunt of Johnny Carson. Schiff versus Barr. I'll take Barr. One of the reasons I brought up Carson is, he was the king of false sincerity that didn't come off as fawning genuflection.

Schiff's problem is, he is a really bad liar. Man that ain't good in a lawyer. Maybe in the court room it's different but the camera in close up, captures those eyes and all the subtleties and only a fool would believe them.

Looks like there is gonna be a wrestling match in DC. Trump thrives on friction more than just about any human being I can think of.

It's his life. He loves it and seeks it.

I am gonna have to take the Champ in this little dust up.
