Politics: A Short Break for the Impeachment Hearings

I’m taking a short break to focus on the House Impeachment Hearings.

With newly released transcripts from the closed-door hearings, it feels
like the hearings began.

The testimony of today’s witness, Catherine Croft,  describes a foreign
policy designed to please, Vladimir Putin.

“In a briefing with Mick Mulvaney, the question centered around the Russian reaction,” she continued.

“What was the concern about the Russian reaction?” asked the staffer.

“That Russia would react negatively to the provision of Javelins to Ukraine,” she said.  The Daily Beast

Here is a link to Croft’s testimony on The Daily Beast:

Here are the Constitutional reasons for the impeachment of Donald Trump from The Beat with Ari Melber:

Hillary Clinton was right about everything

She’s still right.

For folks who doubt the seriousness of Russia’s 2016 attack on our elections, this is a screenshot I took on August 29, 2016, of the top headlines on BING. If you examine it, you’ll see a search string that includes the Anthony Weiner scandal. I did not run that search. My browser was hijacked.

Politics: The Art of Michael D’Antuono

Art is not made to decorate rooms. It is an offensive weapon in the defense against the enemy. Pablo Picasso, 1943-03-24

I saw the ‘Diversity’ poster by Michael D’Antuono in a tweet from Malcolm
Nance.

 

Diversity Makes America Great

 

Michael D’Antuono’s art is reminiscent of Norman Rockwell.

 

“”Freedom from Fear” by Norman Rockwell 1943

But these are different times:

Cold as Ice

Like Rockwell, D’Antuono uses his art to make a powerful case for American Democracy and the Rule of Law.

The Talk
Make America Hate Again
If We Can’t Trust the President we need to Impeach

I post these images because I agree with them. I do not know the artist and do not profit from sales of his work.

#MondayMood: For Oscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez and His Daughter, Valeria

To be civilized does not mean having studied at university, or having read many books, or possessing great wisdom: we all know that certain individuals with these characteristics were capable of committing acts of absolutely perfect barbarity. To be civilized means to be capable of fully recognizing the humanity of others, even though they have different faces and customs to ours; to know how to put oneself in their place and look at ourselves as if from outside. No one is definitively barbarian or civilized and each one of us is responsible for our actions. But we, who today receive this great honour, have the responsibility to take a step forward towards a little more civilization. Tzvetan Todorov

Politics: Just Got My Hard Copy of #TheMuellerReport

I just got my hard copy of #TheMuellerReport.

Mueller’s report describes a President who goes
out of his way to prevent law enforcement from
investigating an enemy attack on the people of the
United States.

One can literally open the book to any page and find
a crime.

A page from #TheMullerReport that describes Donald Trump's attempts to obstruct the investigation into Russia's attack on the United States
A page opened at random in the hard copy of #TheMuellerReport

Don’t let Trump’s GOP gaslight you.

Read the #TheMullerReport and draw your own conclusions.

Buy the hard copy on Amazon.

Download the #MuellerReport from me or the Department of Justice

Or listen to #TheMuellerReport on YouTube.

Thank you to everyone who has sent an email
of support.

It’s nice to know you care.
