White House Communications Director Hope Hicks Resigning

White House Communications Director Hope Hicks Resigning:  Just one day after testifying in front of the House Intelligence Committee and acknowledging having told little “white lies” for President Trump, White House Communications Director Hope Hicks is resigning.  This has some analysts wondering whether the Administration will be able to find another such loyal and trusted employee as Hicks.  Hell, if you ask me - that’s the least of their concerns. …

A Question for the End of Black History Month

The motivational speech that initiated the Crusades, was specifically designed to dehumanize, denigrate, demonize, and vilify the dark skinned inhabitants of the Middle East and Northern Africa. It was delivered at the Council of Clermont on 27 November 1095, by Pope Urban II,  and set into motion the social, political, ideological, cultural, economic, and moral construct we commonly refer to today as "racism".



For the first time in the history of Western Europe, white people were…

Olalla Barn #3

The three barns I've painted recently are all situated, albeit precariously, along the same stretch of Olalla Valley Road in Olalla, Washington. I've been posting these images on our local community FB pages, and it's been fun to hear some of the comments. Lots of folks volunteered information about families that used to own the structures, or how they used to work in one of the barns during different seasons. It seemed to kindle some reminiscences for folks, and that makes me…

Authoritarian Reversion

In 1992, leading national scholar Francis Fukayama wrote "The End of History and the Last Man." In it, the author claimed that capitalism and western democracy won the ideological "battle royale" of the 20th century, and was now the "last man standing" without any contenders. All the other ideologies, such as monarchical imperialism (Ottomans, Czars, Hapsburgs), fascism, Nazism, Communism had been defeated and relegated to the so-called "dustbin of history."

What does a downgrade from Top Secret to Secret mean?

What does a downgrade from Top Secret to Secret mean?

 

Today we learned that Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and advisor, was given a security clearance of SECRET after having a temporary clearance of TOP SECRET for the past year.  How was his security level decided?

Why did it take a year for this decision to be made?

Kushner's conflicts are obvious; personal business dealings have been carried out with foreign governmental officials.  Also, a…
