Smithsonian Unveils The Obamas´ Official
Portraits And They Are . . . Interesting

Daily Wire, by Emily Zanotti

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/12/2018 12:46:24 PM

Monday morning, the Smithsonian´s National Portrait Gallery unveiled their official portraits of former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle. And while both portraits are the work of avant garde contemporary artists, in this case they might be just a touch too avant garde. Barack Obama´s portrait was done by pop artist Kehinde Wiley, who is well known for his hyper-realistic portraits of African American men and women, often done in the style of the Old Masters or with backgrounds familiar to fans of classical, "old world" European art. Wiley recreated Obama´s likeness in his trademark hyper-realistic way, with Obama

I just knew we would get to see her bare arms. The artist didn´t quite capture the angry black woman with the chip on her shoulder persona.

Her portrait looks like a young tanned white woman (with freakishly large hands).

The face on his portrait looks like he is sitting on the toilet with severe constipation.

I honestly don´t get the idea of painted portraits any more. We have great photography, and Photoshop to make it even prettier. At least a photo of Moo-chelle might have looked a little bit like her...

It doesn´t look like her, even if you can see beyond that dress. Artists seems to be a Gauguin wannabe. His has an odd setting.

Both paintings have too many image messages crammed in which detract from the two portrayed.

Some artsy types may love it. I am certain others are laughing but they will never divulge their real opinion publicly. I searched for more of this “artist’s” work and found the common threads, black females looking fierce and oh catch the one with a black woman holding the severed head of a white woman/person. It absolutely makes perfect sense WHY the Obamas love this fellow! Kathy Griffin will wonder why an artist who painted THAT would be A ok with the PC crowd!

Looking at many of this prolific "artist´s" paintings, you see a common theme. It looks like she got the expressions from the morgue- they are all this plain, bland, expressionless, as in death, look about them. for women, that pale blue, sun burnt 1963 Ford Falcon flat is common, and for the men, the same expressionless face but with super busy background, that seems to absorb the subject in a dizzying sea of sameness, making all life seem to just evaporate out of the painting. The artist, Amy Sherald, is supposed to be a "Black Revolutionary" expressionist. And really, she is just a pretend artist with not the slightest understanding of what makes a painting come alive. She seems fixated, instead, on death and hopelessness. One thing for sure, she caught a sale on that uni-flat pale blue background paint.

A ´Goldilocks´ air strike on Syria
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/15/2018 3:47:45     Post Reply
As the war drums were being beaten for an attack on Syria in response to its apparent use of chlorine gas, I shared some of the fears of such critics as Tucker Carlson and Michael Savage – that we were being led into a possible war that could end up a quagmire. My greatest reservation was the possibility of toppling Assad and reaping another Libya or Iraq, with even worse enemies taking control. And for all the brutality of the Assad regime, it has prevented wholesale religious massacres in a multi-religion state.But so far, the strike on three targets in

The results of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), released this week, offer little to celebrate. Political leaders and education advocates are struggling to find evidence that their preferred policy—whatever it might be—is having much impact on student performance. Progress has stalled in recent years, and results at the state and national level are far below where most education policymakers thought they would be by now. Despite the efforts of George W. Bush, many children are still being left behind; despite the efforts of Barack Obama, the race to the top didn’t produce many winners. Administered to a representative

A soon-to-be-released updated edition of an Advanced Placement (AP) U.S. History textbook teaches students that white Christian Americans are finding it “difficult to adjust” to becoming a minority and puts forward the perception that President Donald Trump’s election occurred because his apparent “racism connected with a significant number of primary voters.” (Tweet) James Fraser’s By the People: A History of the United States, 2ndEdition, is published by Pearson and has a 2019 copyright date.

The release of former FBI director James Comey’s book coaxed Michiko Kakutani, the New York Times’s former, famously influential chief book critic out of retirement and, unusually, into the news pages of Friday’s edition. The online headline praised Comey’s Trump-bashing tome: “James Comey Has a Story to Tell. It’s Very Persuasive.” Kakutani was given over 2,000 words and a full page in the News section to offer praise for A Higher Loyalty -- Truth, Lies, And Leadership, though the book evidently has no bombshell news to offer. Newsbusters Scott Whitlock noticed, surprisingly, that even the anti-Trump mainstream press finds Comey’s

United Nations Security Council members rejected a Russian proposal to condemn the American-led attack on Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime, voting down the resolution in an emergency meeting Saturday afternoon. The proposal failed, following a debate that pit the lack of U.N. support for the airstrikes against Western assessments that Assad has been using chemical weapons “with impunity” in the eighth year of the Syrian civil war. Only three members of the council supported the Russian resolution, compared to eight votes against, with the remaining four nations represented on the council abstaining. “The time for talk ended last night,” U.S. Ambassador

And he’s barely doing any “legal work” for Trump, either, they claim. “[Reviews of the records] indicate that Cohen is in fact performing little to no legal work, and that zero ­e-mails were exchanged with President Trump,” according to the brief, filed in

The body count is staggering. In my 43 years as a journalist, armies of trained bloodhounds have been run out of newsrooms where I´ve worked, victims of layoffs, and buyouts, and battle fatigue. I´ve lost so many hundreds of colleagues, I can´t keep track of where they ended up. These were smart, curious reporters, photographers and editors who told stories that defined place and time and made us all know each other a little better.

At an awards ceremony, the management honored them with a year’s supply of free chicken sandwiches and waffle fries.
