Missouri Dem, Black Caucus

Painting in Capitol Hallway

PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson

WASHINGTON -- A Missouri congressman and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus plan to rehang this week a student painting depicting a police officer with a boar-type head after an angry GOP congressman took it down. (Snip) On Friday, after learning about the painting´s depiction from Twitter, Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) took it down. But Joe Kasper, chief of staff for Hunter, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that despite the "very strong statement" and "outpouring of support" surrounding the painting´s removal, the congressman wouldn´t take down the painting again if his colleague decided to put it back up. “He gets

Comments:
This article has many more details. They are going to rehang it ´during a ceremony´ tomorrow morning. It´s really sick that it even has to be pointed out that it is a racist painting. Of course Rep. Clay says that the painting ´reflected the artist´s reality.´ That´s the same thing we were told about the filthy, violent, vitriolic rap ´music´ that has destroyed our culture.

Maybe one of our more creative posters could anonymously send Rep. Duncan Hunter a nice portrait of Nancy Pelosi painted as a pig.

He could hang it in the same area as this painting, and keep it up until they take down their hateful propaganda painting.

Hanging this painting is divisive and demeaning to police.

The Congressional Black Caucus is an organization that is self-segregated based on race. Instead of promoting unity and harmony they promote division and conflict. They should be ashamed of themselves.

How long do you think a White Caucus would last in D.C.? I´m so sick of all of the black representatives being totally disrespectful of anything that is normal. Police are normal people but they are just to stupid (really) to figure that out. They have to be black first and somewhere down the list they consider themselves American. I don´t!!

The ´Sheriff of Wall Street´ may be soon coming to a screen near you. Sacked former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara is angling for a show on CNN or MSNBC for his next move, a source tells the New York Post.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow saw a steep drop in ratings the day after she released one of President Trump´s tax forms. Maddow and her preceding host Chris Hayes heavily promoted Tuesday´s broadcast as a "breaking" revelation, and Maddow devoted most of her program to Trump´s two-page 1040 form from 2005.

Everyone should try to skip the shiny things embedded within the story of a laptop theft from a Secret Service Agent Marie Argentieri. The theft appears to have nothing to do with Trump Tower or Trump Tower floor plans. The theft appears to have everything to do with Argentieri as a supportive investigator for Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Evidence of the specific targeting is transparent within the eye witness stories that a car pulled up, a passenger exited the vehicle – went directly to Agent Argentieri’s vehicle, broke in, took the back pack and walked away quickly.

The board voted for the change this week, according to documents just filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

President Donald Trump’s budget director told reporters Thursday the White House was no longer spending money on climate change research because it’s a “waste of your money.” “We’re not spending money on that anymore,” Mick Mulvaney, the Office of Management and Budget director, said at a press briefing while discussing the president’s decision to dial back climate science research. “We consider that to be a waste of your money,” he added. Trump released his congressional budget request Thursday, which contained several contentious reductions, including dramatic cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy.

The closures highlight the pressures on traditional department stores, which are losing market share to off-price competitors and Amazon.

It seemed a little early to condemn NFL teams for freezing out Colin Kaepernick. Barely a week had gone by in free agency. With one exception — albeit a grotesque, borderline-obscene one — not many quarterbacks had been coming off of the market. Bleacher Report’s Friday story on how front-office types still want nothing to do with him for his protests during the national anthem shined another light on it. (Snip) Come on. Stop it. Do not ever say Colin Kaepernick can´t get a job because he´s not good enough. Think of a better excuse. Think of a better lie.

Nevertheless, former President Barack Obama is unwinding nicely from the most important job in the world. He´s been to sunny California for some golf, a private island in the Caribbean, where he kite-surfed with billionaire Richard Branson; he went to New York to take in a Broadway play, and then again, to dine with U2´s Bono.

In the four months since the election, New York and D.C. media outlets have been diligently boosting all stories related to Chelsea Clinton, apparently in the hopes that they can astroturf a political appetite among liberals for a political campaign by the former First Daughter. Here’s The Hill, from yesterday: When rumors started swirling after the election that Chelsea Clinton was considering her own foray into politics, it was met with eye rolls even from staunch supporters of the family. […] But that skepticism is starting to fade. Last month, a separate report in the New York Daily News said that Clinton could

The former Secretary of State was photographed as she made her way to a waiting car after a day spent at the John Barrett Salon, showing off the results of her new $600 haircut and $600 dye job.

Expedia (EXPE) said Clinton will be paid "in accordance with the company´s standard compensation policies" for board members. According to an Expedia proxy statement from August, non-employee directors were paid a $45,000 "annual retainer" and awarded $250,000 worth of stock in 2015.

Trump appointees to head the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency to the contrary, the war on science isn’t limited to conservatives. Liberals have their own anti-science biases. Where conservatives often reject science based on their literal interpretation of the Bible or due to an abhorrence of federal regulations, liberals appear to be motivated by a belief that all things natural are good, anything with a chemical name is bad, and everything that profits an industry is really bad (unless that industry makes dietary supplements).

The Trump administration wants to build a 30-foot-high border wall that looks good from the north side and is difficult to climb or cut through, according to a pair of contract notices posted to a government website further detailing President Donald Trump´s promise to build a "big, beautiful wall" at the Mexican border. The notices were made public late Friday by Customs and Border Protection, the Homeland Security Department agency that will oversee the project and eventually patrol and maintain the wall. The proposals are due to the government by March 29.

The three-year, $450,000 project will simulate two nuclear detonations and their effects on up to 20 million virtual ´agents´ each representing civilian, first responder or other official over the course of 30 days. But first they need to input data - a lot of data, taken from disaster reports across the US - to figure out how individuals really react to catastrophe. ´Computational social science is not experimental.´ Professor William Kennedy of Virginia´s George Mason University
