THE LAST WORD by Greg Pettis<br />

Well, this week our Prez has brought us to the<br />

point of WWIII and this time it will be nuclear.<br />

He thinks he had swat North Korea and have their<br />

little dictator back down but either can’t remember<br />

or doesn’t care that China shares a northern<br />

border with North Korea and is still their sponsor<br />

state. Also, any nuclear attack on Pyongyang<br />

would have fall out in; China, South Korea, Japan,<br />

Guam, Russia and several other nations.<br />

Watching him and the North Korean leader on<br />

television this week is akin to a fight of pygmies<br />

arguing about whose dick is bigger! No offense to<br />

pygmies.<br />

Even a conventional attack would spark retaliation,<br />

either against us in Guam or more likely<br />

our allies in South Korea. Lest we forget we have<br />

20,000+ soldiers stationed in South Korea. Any<br />

attack would also create a massive refugee problem<br />

for both China and the US.<br />

He ended the week announcing he won’t rule out<br />

military action in Venezuela! What is wrong with<br />

this man? He had somewhere between 3-5 deferments<br />

from the draft during Vietnam, never served,<br />

never put on a uniform, and somehow thinks we<br />

can deploy our military EVERYWHERE! We are<br />

already too deep in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq and<br />

god knows where else. And this from a man who<br />

campaigned against President Obama for foreign<br />

policy. A man who won the Nobel Peace Prize!<br />

the election – ooops! Former campaign manager<br />

Paul Manafort’s house is raided in a predawn raid<br />

by the FBI! Plus, TWO grand juries have now<br />

been empaneled. More search warrants to come<br />

and indictments not too far away.<br />

Oh, and I almost forgot, he is now tweeting attacks<br />

on the Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell.<br />

From his own party! Told him to get back to work<br />

– all the while he was on the golf course in New<br />

Jersey on his “working vacation”.<br />

Am I alone or is it time to say – Donald Trump –<br />

YOU ARE FIRED!<br />

Labor Day there will be a Resistance Rally at the<br />

Cathedral City Town Square Park by the Civic<br />

Center. It will be from 5:30pm – 7:00pm and feature<br />

speakers from local and county government,<br />

education, healthcare, environment and more.<br />

There will even be kid’s activities so folks can bring<br />

the family. Come join us as the valley says NO to<br />

Donald Trump and his regressive policies!<br />

Well, that’s it for this week. Keep moving forward<br />

and RESISTING!<br />

What an A-hole! I was raised to respect the President<br />

of the United States. I disagreed vehemently<br />

with George Bush, George W. Bush, Ronald<br />

Reagan and yes even at times the Democrats, but<br />

always respected them and their office. In just 200<br />

days this clown has destroyed that.<br />

Greg Pettis is a <strong>22</strong> year city councilman in<br />

Cathedral City. Greg was the first openly<br />

gay elected city council members In Riverside<br />

County. He has served on the boards<br />

of the National League of Cities and the<br />

League of <strong>California</strong> Cities and as President<br />

of the Southern CA Association of<br />

Governments.<br />

And if he thought all this bluster would divert<br />

attention from his troubles with Robert Mueller<br />

and the investigation(s) into Russia meddling in<br />

the aircraft that carries the U.S.<br />

President. Today the Air Force 1 stays<br />

true to its roots with soft, springy<br />

cushioning and a massive midsole,<br />

but the Nike Air technology takes<br />

a backseat to the shoe’s status as an<br />

icon.<br />

21st annual HRC National<br />

Dinner, which will be held<br />

on Saturday, October 28,<br />

<strong>2017</strong>. Once again our only<br />

hope.<br />

The Human Rights Campaign is the leading<br />

national advocacy organization working<br />

for the equal rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual,<br />

transgender, and queer Americans through<br />

education, research, and political activities.<br />

The HRC National Dinner brings together<br />

nearly 4,000 HRC members, friends, family,<br />

and allies for an evening of celebration and<br />

inspiration. Featuring a cocktail reception,<br />

an extensive silent and live auction,<br />

an elegant dinner, live entertainment, and<br />

thought-provoking speakers and guests, the<br />

HRC National Dinner attracts the nation’s<br />

top figures in entertainment and politics..<br />

Everywhere you travel, The Human Rights<br />

Campaign logo is the most prevalent<br />

symbol of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender<br />

and queer community.<br />

The Human Rights Campaign Fund was<br />

founded by Steve Endean in 1980 as one<br />

of the first gay and lesbian political action<br />

committee in the United States. The Fund’s<br />

mission was to provide financial support on<br />

behalf of the gay and lesbian community to<br />

political candidates who supported gay civil<br />

rights legislation. Vic Basile served as the<br />

Fund’s first executive director.<br />

The Fund quickly rose to prominence – after<br />

its first election cycle in 1982, the Fund<br />

was the 17th largest independent political<br />

action committee in the United States.<br />

Today we find ourselves cut adrift by an<br />

administration that does not hold the same<br />

moral convictions to support the LGBT<br />

community and many other ideals we once<br />

cherished. Today violence and hate seem to<br />

be part of this administration.<br />

If you or someone you know is struggling<br />

to comprehend the results and is in need of<br />

assistance, here are several LGBTQ-friendly<br />

resources:<br />

JERSEY’S JOURNAL by jersey Shore<br />

Is it me or has this town gotten<br />

scummier. I know scummier isn’t<br />

the first choice of words for an adult<br />

piece, but scummier. It’s a word, I<br />

think.<br />

I’ve been performing out here<br />

for way over a decade and I don’t<br />

remember this town feeling all corrupt<br />

with wanna be <strong>Palm</strong> <strong>Springs</strong><br />

personalities. With their seven<br />

smelly costumes and a whopping five<br />

numbers in their performance bag.<br />

Funny how my phone knows the<br />

next word, which was millennials.<br />

They think they are taking over?<br />

Fuck no. Because you can do the<br />

overrated death drop? Yawn girls. So,<br />

all that leaves you with is excruciating<br />

back pain in your forties.<br />

I love the girls who wrap shredded<br />

material around themselves and<br />

poof, a black bodysuit is disguised.<br />

It’s magic folks.<br />

won’t have it. Go suck somewhere<br />

else. It gets exhausting.<br />

Why are memories from the past the<br />

best it was? The best should be now.<br />

We are a classy mature crowd. Are<br />

we not?<br />

Peace, Love and Humanity,<br />

THE ROBERT E. LEE STATUE HOW ART CAN INFLU-<br />

ENCE AND EDUCATE<br />

The bronze statue of Robert E. Lee was<br />

unveiled in 1924 in Charlottesville, Virginia.<br />

<strong>This</strong> event was attended heavily by the<br />

Sons of the Confederacy as part of their<br />

annual reunion. The statue was donated<br />

and by Paul Mcintire a philanthropist and<br />

part time resident of Charlottesville when<br />

he wasn’t occupied making money on Wall<br />

Street.<br />

Henry Shrady was the primary artist<br />

involved in the creation of the 26-foot<br />

high statue he won a competition entered<br />

in 1902 with Edward Casey, an architect.<br />

The completion of the statue took nearly<br />

20 years in which Shrady participated in<br />

studying the biological structure of the<br />

horse and other sculpturing techniques.<br />

Shrady died in 19<strong>22</strong> before the statue was<br />

completed. The work was finalized with finishing<br />

touches by the sculptor Leo Lentellli<br />

who was noted for other imposing political<br />

sculptures.<br />

other artifacts. They should not be venerated<br />

as an ideal to continue. The generals<br />

of the Civil War were traitors. They were<br />

defending slavery, divisiveness, hatred, and<br />

greed. The White Supremest activists and<br />

individuals following this movement are<br />

destructive to society and to the country in<br />

general. Unfortunately. the United States<br />

has elected a president who promotes and<br />

supports the premise of these hate groups.<br />

The only remedy for the tragedy of Trump<br />

is impeachment and removal from office.<br />

After the events in Charlottesville over the<br />

weekend hopefully, people will begin to<br />

realize the the dangerous mistake that has<br />

been made with the hate mongering Trump<br />

and the haters and bigots that support him<br />

can soon be designated to a negative period<br />

of United States history.<br />

Questions, comments, suggestions, contact<br />

- adamsartexpose@gmail.com<br />

The statue was over a week delayed in<br />

arriving by train at Charlotteville. Waiting<br />

to be unveiled it was covered by a giant<br />

confederate flag. From the very beginning<br />

of the planning of this statue, it had been<br />

a divisive undertaking. The Civil War had<br />

been fought 40 years prior and emotions<br />

were still frail regarding the events of the<br />

war. What has evolved during the past<br />

century is a realization that inequality and<br />

racism are not acceptable. The icons of the<br />

Confederacy have become symbols of hate<br />

and division. Putting them into museums<br />

and other places where they can be seen as<br />

educational tools representing an era that<br />

should not be repeated, is a useful way to<br />

maintain the artistic value of sculptures and<br />

who ventured to be exposed to his peering<br />

lens and let their personal stories be told<br />

through dramatic black & white portraiture<br />

– one moment at a time.<br />

Originally hailing from the New York City<br />

art scene, Curry Mendes has called <strong>Palm</strong><br />

<strong>Springs</strong> home for the past nine years. Mr.<br />

Mendes has been painting and shooting<br />

photography, both commercially and artistically<br />

for the past twenty five years and<br />

portraiture is his passion. Prominent <strong>Palm</strong><br />

<strong>Springs</strong> restauranteurs and art collectors,<br />

Jerry & Barbara Keller, share their collection<br />

of Curry’s portraiture work in their establishments<br />

which can be seen on public display<br />

at LuLu’s <strong>California</strong> Bistro and Acqua<br />

<strong>California</strong> Bistro.<br />

“Photographs are time capsules in a frame.<br />

As a portrait photographer, my objective is<br />

to tell an emotionally in-depth story that<br />

truly captures that moment in time as if the<br />

art were an archive of emotion. As a writer<br />

uses words to tell a story, I utilize composition,<br />

gestures, positioning, color, lighting<br />

and balance to expose viewers to a captured<br />

and archived moment in time.<br />

The show was specifically designed as an<br />

Avant-Garde art photography project to<br />

emphasize the fleeting moments of memories<br />

which we like to hold on to which is<br />

the reasoning of a one night only exhibition.<br />

The participants will not see their portraits<br />

until the reveal which will be the evening of<br />

the event.”<br />
