Face first….what an entry!

I’m struggling with some tedium in the foreground….still a work in progress!

Kewpie hits the road?

Still a work in progress.  I’m working out a wobble in the matrix…..it seems my perception is not as clear as it was when I conceived it. Ha!  Clarity!

Hostage, 2013, acrylic on canvas board, 9 x 12 inches This piece now seems to be a premonition about an “unaware and compliant citizenry.”

Degenerate…deplorable….degenerate….deplorable….let’s call the whole thing off!

Before the creation of the internet and ability of people to communicate across social media platforms, we had art.  It traveled the world and communicated the artist’s vision and perceptions of the world.  It had impact.  Pablo Picasso’s Guernica (1937) is a prime example.  An artist’s vision is always true, it can be poorly constructed and awful to look at, but it cannot be false – – unless it is directed to be perceived as such.  Many regimes have directed that art be perceived as false, but none so thoroughly as Hitler – – he labeled their art degenerate.

“As for the degenerate artists, I forbid them to force their so-called experiences upon the public. If they do see fields blue, they are deranged, and should go to an asylum. If they only pretend to see them blue, they are criminals, and should go to prison. I will purge the nation of them.”  —Adolf Hitler

Hitler correctly saw painting and artistry as communication of free thought – as paintings do represent the artist’s perception and vision.  Forbidding such communication was key to controlling the populace, because there can be no possible perception of reality beyond the official position of the state.  Therefore, it was necessary to restrain free speech.

Today a “state actor” has worked to censor the free flow of information to the American public (and indeed, the world) of source material without it being filtered and interpreted by the news media. Odds are good the “state actor” is the U.S.   The official position of the state in the United States is that, despite her labeling half of American’s deplorable, Hillary Clinton will be the next President.  The current head of state, Obama, is actively and ardently campaigning for her election.  He and his wife, the Vice President and half of Congress support her which means they also support her many platforms, public and private.

At the risk of being overly obvious, today, after a spate of releases directed at damaging globalist Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, this “state actor” removed the ability of Julian Assange (WikiLeaks) to communicate directly to the world, ostensibly to stave off any further damage to her ambitions.  This is consistent with her agenda revealed in the content of the emails released by WikiLeaks from the liberated emails of John Podesta, Hillary’s main campaign operative.  These emails relate Hillary’s “conspiracy” to create an “unaware and compliant citizenry” and reveal the collusion between her campaign operatives and the vast majority of “journalists” and “news organizations.”

CNN now insists that it is illegal to look at anything released by WikiLeaks because the content was obtained by hacking.  That flawed logic sets up a framework for eliminating from view the truth of the collusion between a political campaign and the press and furthers the aim to create an “unaware and compliant citizenry.”  Amazingly, in a not-so-veiled attempt to prop up the Clinton Campaign, CNN, an alleged independent news organization,  supports the “state action” of censorship and its intendant consequence of impacting free speech, a Constitutional right.  I say amazingly because at the same time, CNN relies on freedom of speech to allege that 16 years ago Clinton’s rival engaged in lewd sexual behavior on a plane.  The desperate need to keep the Clinton campaign’s emails from the public forum requires an act of war…..severing internet service, whether directly or through sporadic “outages” is the technical equivalent of “droning” the flow of information.



oh, by the way…

I suppose this could have been cheerier.  But alas, I’ve been more than a little annoyed with media manipulation and the plan to have an “unaware and compliant citizenry.”
