Grassy Knoll Conspiracy Theories

Grassy Knoll, Russia Conspiracy, Postal Conspiracy

The grassy knoll has been the gold standard for conspiracies theories in my lifetime. I was into it. My parents even took me to a presentation by Dr. Cyril Wecht the forensic pathologist who explained the finer points of shooting bullets into goat carcasses to prove that Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone. But as the years wore on the story gradually ceased to get my goat.

However, now there’s competition on the grassy knoll. It looked like the new gold standard conspiracy theory could well be that President Trump is a Russian agent! It’s the only reasonable explanation for his victory over Hillary. But there’s not much talk about it anymore. Word is out that Hillary and the DNC paid for the Steele Dossier, and FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith is pleading guilty to altering a document used to spy on the Trump campaign.

But wait! In these fast moving times Democrats have gone postal with a new grassy knoll theory. Agent Trump is crushing the Postal Service in his torture chamber in order to block mail-in ballots for Biden and steal yet another election.

Cognitively Certified and Proud of it

President Trump is cognitively certified and bragging about it. Not only did he test negative for Covid-19, his brain tested positive on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, or MoA.

As achievements go the test is a low bar. Passing it simply means you don’t have dementia. For now. But Trump seems to think Joe Biden couldn’t pole vault over the the bar and he’s trying to provoke him out of his basement to take the test.

Joe’s Cognitive abilities may serve him well. He said he didn’t know anything about the Michael Flynn investigation. But former FBI agent Peter Stzrok’s notes from a Jan 2017 meeting say Biden recommended prosecuting Flynn under the Logan Act.

Obama deputy AG Sally Yates says she doesn’t remember if Biden brought up the Logan act but she testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that he didn’t influence the Flynn Investigation.

As far as I know she hasn’t been tested either.

Stock Market Impeachment Indicator

The stock market hit record highs. Trump's bragging. And Democrats are impeaching. Just like Republicans when the market jumped on Clinton's watch.

Covering Hillary’s Russian Assets

Hillary still thinks the Russians beat her.

And maybe she’s right. In a podcast with former Obama advisor David Plouffe Hillary accused Tulsi Gabbard of being a Russian asset. So Tulsi hammered back that Hillary is the “rot that sickens the Democrats.” Not bad for an 11th place Democrat primary challenger.

In the WSJ (it’s paywall protected) Holman Jenkins says the podcast is becoming “famous for all the wrong reasons.” And “Democrats would help themselves by shutting her up.”

The title? Hillary Is a Russian Asset.

Bush Funeral All About Humility

Humility

The funeral for President George H. W. Bush was beautiful, and informative. W’s eulogy was touching.

I drew Bush 41 a lot, and felt like I understood him pretty well as a goofy but decent guy. And I was aware of of his other virtues like integrity, kindness, courage, high speed golfing and fishing, airplane jumping and lip reading. But hearing the speakers, all of whom were close to him and loved him, one virtue seemed to stand out – humility. Maybe that’s because it’s a rare commodity these days, especially in Washington. Anyway, former Senator Alan Simpson nailed it in his warm and witty eulogy:

Those who crave the high road of humility in Washington , DC are not bothered by heavy traffic.

Then the camera panned to  President Trump and the past presidents the front row and, well, this cartoon idea kind of jumped out.

It’s not often you get a pack of presidents together in one shot. So I try to make the most of it. Here’s a cartoon I drew when they gathered for Nixon’s funeral.

Maybe I’ll do the Bush bunch pondering, “If Perot hadn’t run…”

I know. I left Jimmy Carter out of the humility cartoon. It’s not the first time.
