Obama’s muddy palette captures a dark heart.

This TIME Tweet caught my eye yesterday.

Obamian portrait artist, Kehinde Wiley, granted the magazine the honor of an interview in which he detailed the ordeal of capturing the essence of the former President on canvas.

The Tweet image, presumably Wiley’s paint palette, contains all the colors necessary to laying down Obama to easel.  They seem to be included in one muddy smudge of shit.

Only thing I can’t determine…is this to capture Obama’s skin or his heart?

DNC ups the ante and lights the fire.

They better be careful of what they start.    Blood’s on their hands.

The Democratic National Committee filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit Friday against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the WikiLeaks organization alleging a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump.

The complaint, filed in federal district court in Manhattan, alleges that top Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government and its military spy agency to hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and help Trump by hacking the computer networks of the Democratic Party and disseminating stolen material found there.

“During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found a willing and active partner in Donald Trump’s campaign,” DNC Chairman Tom Perez said in a statement.

“This constituted an act of unprecedented treachery: the campaign of a nominee for President of the United States in league with a hostile foreign power to bolster its own chance to win the presidency,” he said.

The case asserts that the Russian hacking campaign — combined with Trump associates’ contacts with Russia and the campaign’s public cheerleading of the hacks — amounted to an illegal conspiracy to interfere in the election that caused serious damage to the Democratic Party.

 

 

James Comey (Righteousman), fantasy writer and evidence planter.

In a shocking development, we learned today that James Comey, once upon a time Director of the FBI, quit his day job (uh, was “relieved” of), in order to pursue his dream of spinning tales of fantasy.

Who’d have thought the Lerch-like national lawman would have such a soft spot for Unicorns and other romanticized fictional finales (suffused with sweet-smelling motivations)?

While out peddling his new Sword & Sorcery tome at a Barnes & Noble in NYC, Comey tantalized with nuggets of truth serum before predictably sinking like an obese liberal in the quicksand of his mythological tales of delusion.

He began,

 

“James Comey has admitted that there is a deep state…”

 

Then the degeneracy.

 

…but claimed that it was actually a ‘deep ballast’ against corruption.

The fired FBI director said there is a group of people in law enforcement, intelligence and the military who work for what they see as the interests of America.

Comey described the group as ‘unchangeable’ and said no single president could change them because they are so embedded in the bureaucracy.

He said the group was not a ‘deep state conspiring against the elected leadership of our government’ because they were trying to do the right thing.

 

Ah yes, Deep State is a virtuous group of American superheroes seeking to uphold the principles of the United States. Marvel couldn’t have done this any better.

Comey continues his rainbow splurge of theoretical oddity.

 

Speaking to the crowd, Comey said: ‘There is a deep state in this sense. There is a collection of people, CIA, NSA, FBI in the United State military services who care passionately about getting it right, who care passionately about the values we try to talk about.

‘No matter how they vote or how they talk at home, try desperately to do the right thing. That is deep, that is unchangeable actually.

‘No president at a single term could screw it up. It would take generations to change the culture of the United States military in its essence, federal law enforcement, of intelligence community. It would take generations, and that should comfort us.

‘There is a ballast, there is deep ballast in America. There is not a deep state conspiring against the elected leadership of our government.

‘In fact the adherence to values and the loyalty to the nation makes all of those people who are the ballast of this country desperately want the elected leadership of this country to succeed.’

 

Ex-Director Comey lays it on thick.

He spins tales of an embedded institutional cadre of shadowy overlings that seeks to remove a President who the group smugly, sanctimoniously, has pronounced is working against the good of this country. Isn’t there an element of arbitrary judgment inherent to Deep State’s ambitious machinations which seek to overturn the Trump Presidency?

Apparently Deep State knows what is good for all Americans better than they know themselves.  If Deep State wants the elected leadership to “succeed” so well, why do they appear to be doing all they can to unseat President Trump? Deep State has obviously decided, unilaterally, that President Trump is bad for the United States; a pronouncement which, coming from a body of elitist fixtures of a subdermal quasi-government only leads me to believe that President Trump is actually the best thing this country has going for it.

James Comey has described, behind his veneer of cynical altruism, an immutable, unelected element deeply burrowed in the American government that transcends generations and elections.  Goodbye Democracy, hello superheroes!  It’s fine because this shadowy group is “watching out” for us.  We can rest easy since our votes  and representative democracy mean nothing.

Coming on the day of the release of a trove of Comey’s notes detailing conversations with President Trump before he was fired last May (aka, Comey’s Planted Evidence, for how can we assume otherwise?), Comey is a busy man whose mission it appears involves complete humiliation and discrediting of our standing President.

Deep State continues perpetuating its vampiric wrath, and Comey reckons himself Righteousman.

Where VOAT???

Well, not to go all sky-is-falling-on-you, but.

This is just a little worrisome.

Normally, if a favorite website is offline, you just casually assume it’s some sort of “technical” problem and you move on to the next entry on your reading list.  (Assuming it’s a small “mom and pop” blog that lacks a 404 splash page).

In today’s oppressive thought-controlled Orwellian era which has seen conservative viewpoints stymied by cyber-institutional leftists (even one of my Youtube videos was flagged the other day for offending the almighty community standards uptightspeak), if one of your favorite “alternative” outlets seems to be digitally sputtering, you moan fearfully.

What did they do…are the Powers that seek to control thought exerting their influential malfeasance?

 

2016PDT, April 18

 

I’m sure it’s nothing, I thought nervously, when I attempted to raise the very conservative counterpoint to Reddit earlier.   Technical problems….where’s the goat?

Sites go down all the time.
