David With The Head of Goliath.jpg

David With The head of Goliath
Caravaggio

"after a fortnight's work he will swagger about for a month or two with a sword at his side and a servant following him, from one ball-court to the next, ever ready to engage in a fight or an argument, so that it is most awkward to get along with him."

He was probably a Moron.

There is something about Caravaggio's work that is incredibly pleasing. He is technically amazing...everything looks so real. But he seems to be able to add even more life. Did his brushes go to 11?

OK, art lovers, enlighten me - what's the deal with the woman on the right offering her boob to the head of Zardoz?

7 Oh, Carvaggio is lovely.

In the middle drawing is that Jesus getting beaten with flutes and if so why does he get his own flute? Also, how did the guy on the left get medieval armor?

And I hope to be the first Moron to point out that there's a 70 year old guy getting breast fed in the bottom drawing.

It would be nice if Comey just said, I was forced to or they threatened me to or the fix was in from the start. Just tear down the facade of the whole farce of this and be honest for once. But that will never happen

19 "Also, how did the guy on the left get medieval armor?"

Renaissance painters were not known for their fidelity to historic details. Sometimes they purposefully used "current" details to better communicate with the audience.

Now.. you say, "Steve.. what do I say to the tax man when he comes to my door and says, 'You.. have never paid taxes'?" Two simple words. Two simple words in the English language: "I forgot!" How many times do we let ourselves get into terrible situations because we don't say "I forgot"? Let's say you're on trial for armed robbery. You say to the judge, "I forgot armed robbery was illegal."

99 What's amazing is that all of the pundits and Republican politicians seem to be falling for the distraction Comey deceitfully crafted into his statement.

And that is that Hillary was "extremely careless". And then he claimed that no reasonable prosecutor would prosecute for carelessness.

And then the pundits and Republican politicians take the bait by pointing to there being no difference between "extreme carelessness" and "gross negligence" and that Comey should have recommended prosecution for gross negligence.

But for a lot of LIVs, they will say to themselves, wait - should someone go to prison for negligence? If I, a LIV, cause a car accident through my negligence, should I go to prison? So why should Hillary? (Yeah, I know it's not the same, but bear with me, I'm talking about LIVs.)

But the point is that this is NOT a negligence case.

Maybe Hillary might convince a jury that the first time she did it in her very first week on the job, it was negligence.

But after seeing obvious national secrets pass through and be stored on her personal emal server time and time again, for weeks and months and then years into the thousands of instances, information like identities of CIA agents and upcoming drone strikes and US spy satellite info - this was done knowingly, not negligently, for years. Comey intentionally and deceitfully skirted this obvious truth.

What a sham, on the part of all parties.

2. Hillary will never get indicted for her email scandal. Doesn't matter what they find, how many times she broke the law, or how many lies she told about it, there is zero chance that the corrupt Obama Administration will ever hold the Democrats' presumptive Presidential nominee accountable for her criminal actions. [OUTCOME: CORRECT.]

3. A Republican who has a history of calling women "pigs" and "fat slobs" will never under any circumstances be elected President by the current electorate. [OUTCOME: TBD.]

Ryan, if he had any balls (I know) should call a vote of expulsion for Eleanor Holmes Norton.

Bad enough that she was breaking house rules by sitting in but now she is saying that he dare not punish her for it.

He needs to demonstrate that she isn't the boss of him. Otherwise she will be.


Alternatively, he should call her in and make her apologize on the floor for 1) breaking the rules (as she admitted), 2) for calling for further breaking of the rules, and 3) for denigrating the power of the Speaker.

But, no. Now he is Eleanor's bitch. She can do what she wants, and he will do what she wants.

184 Here's my bad news for the week.....

We had a hellacious storm here yesterday. Straight line winds (or a small toronado). Picked up an outside umbrella out of a table, flew it over the house and driveway (where 3 cars were parked) and landed it in the neighbors yard. The power went out but we had a backup generator that kicks in when the power goes out.


So it kicked in....then it kicked out....then it kicked in...then it had a hissy fit and died. Taking with it one of our AC units for the 1st floor, a brand new coffee maker, a fan/light in one room and our well pump (or so we thought...the pump seems to have fixed itself).


They're here to install the new generator (last one was apparently 12 years old...we moved here 3 years ago)....at the low, low price of $4500. AC guys will be here today or tomorrow, so don't know the bill for that yet. Keeping our fingers crossed that the well pump is ok.


Last year we had a hail storm that required us to get a new roof and damaged our cars. Year before that our hot water heater sh!t the bed and flooded our finished basement. Our insurance company hates us.


We didn't have this much damage living in Connecticut for 14 years with all the hurricanes we lived through.

Oh, FFS!
Why would they even read Curious George - don't they accuse jews of being monkeys (i.e. see them as being as 'unclean' as dogs and pigs?).

I recall reading that one of the major publishers had created a new imprint for Muslim children's books, so this is obviously the cool, new, 'look how tolerant we are!' thing to do. Because most editors look like the HuffPost editorial board: young, white women.

208 Comey: "nobody in the FBI leaked what I was going to do"

I call bullshit. The lawyers at the DOJ and the senior personnel at the FBI have been working closely together on this investigation for months. The lawyers at the DOJ are overwhelmingly supporters of Hillary and left-wing radicals.

Undoubtedly in conversations of FBI personnel with DOJ lawyers it was discussed whether "no reasonable prosecutor" would bring this case.

Anything known by the leftwing DOJ lawyers would quickly get back to Hillary's advisors and Obama's.

This statement would have been worked on and circulated in various drafts for at least a week, and can anyone really doubt that the contents of what Comey and his colleagues intended to do were known by all since before the meeting between Slick and Loretta?

310 That the fix was in was clear a year and a half ago.

That's when everyone knew that Hillary was running her own secret data server in her closet for all of her government email business.

And the Republicans in Congress allowed Obama's AG to investigate Obama's Secretary of the State. This same person who is running to be the AG's new boss. This same person whose husband as president appointed Obama's AG to her first position as US Attorney for EDNY. And Obama himself communicated through email with Obama's Secretary of State on her secret server which was then investigated by Obama's AG.

The Republicans pretended that there is no conflict of interest in this situation. They never insisted or used their leverage to require the appointment of a special counsel free of conflicts of interest to head up the investigation and decide whether to prosecute.

Lawyers are subject to requirements as to ethical standards and rules of professional conduct. Some of these address conflicts of interest. A lawyer is not allowed to handle a matter where the lawyer's own interest is affected by the matter. There is a provision in the law today for the appointment of a special counsel for cases in the DOJ in which there is a conflict of interest.

That the Republicans never insisted on a special counsel back at a time when it could have mattered in this case is a "tell."

Blacks are a superior category of race under law. Blacks get preference in hiring, contracting, admissions and other matters by virtue of their membership in their racial group. If more blacks than are proportional to the population happen to be in prison, then the federal government will seek to release blacks from prison. If blacks are involved in an altercation with police, the federal government will step in against the local police because of the involvement of a member of the superior category of race.

Blacks receive these superior racial legal rights in exchange for their >90% support of the Democrat Party. Democrats claim to justify the granting of racial benefits to blacks with the assertion that whites are racially suppressing blacks.

Democrat politicians understand their job is to work this angle whenever they can. That's what he was doing with his yammering.

382 New York Schools are teaching original sin. That some, through no fault or effort of their own, are guilty merely by being born.

http://tinyurl.com/j7awp2k

White people, of course. Born racist. One parent describes the schools:

"One hundred percent of the [Racial Justice and Advocacy] curriculum is what whites have done to other races. They offer nothing that would balance the story."

The indoctrination into this new faith is having the intended results:

Some kids come home in tears, saying, "I'm a bad person."

They say white kids are being brainwashed into thinking any success they achieve is unearned. Indeed, a young white girl is seen confessing on a Bank Street video: "I feel guilty for having a privilege I don't deserve."

Naturally it never occurs to the parents to take their kids out of the school....

No. Powell used a commercial email service for some personal email. He carefully archived all State email activity anyway. He also didn't use a personal email domain or server.

In other words, there is zero similarity.

FYI - Sulu Is Gay in the new Star Trek Beyond movie



If Sulu was straight in TOS, and the world of ST in the new movies is an alternate reality, and if changes in alternate realities are brought about by decisions made in one reality being the opposite in the other, then doesn't this imply that being gay is a decision, and not something someone is born as?

Posted by: SH at July 07, 2016 11:21 AM (gmeXX)

Under these provisions, the special counsel has control over all decisions in the case. The special counsel controls his own budget and is given his own staff of FBI agents to work the case.

The only way the president can alter the handling of the case is by publicly firing the special counsel.

For corrupt Ruling Class types, it is far better to smother inconvenient legal matters by having them killed quietly within the bureaucracy by their own people than having to so openly show their corruption by publicly firing an independent prosecutor.

This is an important difference.

The evidence of intent is overwhelming. She could only get by with the "careless" excuse once or twice. She did this thousands of times, and it went on for years. The big charade is pretending that she did not knowingly mishandle government secrets.

Hillary was in the White House for eight years, and bizarrely as unelected First Lady was even given a major policy portfolio, health care. She was a Senator for years and was on the Foreign Relations committee, where she participated in both open hearings and classified matters hearings. And she was Secretary of State for years.

She knows what a government secret is. No honest person can possibly claim that Hillary did not understand that the type of information passing through her secret communication system was often confidential government information. This is not a negligence case.

It is a cham and a charade.

Because legally this case is a slam dunk as to numerous offenses.

Congress could have insisted that they will not fund the government or will not approve Obama's appointees or whatever unless both sides agree on which person is to be special counsel. They could have insisted that the special counsel be Ace's pal Andy McCarthy, for example.

The Republicans CONTROL Congress. They have leverage. They choose to not use it.

Yes, I agree with you that perhaps the Clinton/Obama crime family could threaten someone like Andy McCarthy with an assisted suicide in a civil war park or threaten members of his family.

But this country throughout our history has produced persons of amazing personal courage, which we have witnessed in every American war. Surely some courageous American could be found willing to do the job.

593 Suspect these religious paintings may not be safe. Once a pogrom gets started excited people get carried away.
Best sell them to an anonymous collector who will squirrel them away.

594 so we cannot expect a sos to know anything about her job, other than destabilizing countries so she and her buddies can sell the assets off?

so if she doesn't understand the need for secrecy, or classified information.. why did she have her own servers and why did they try to hide information from foia etc?

595 Congress could have insisted that they will not fund the government or will not approve Obama's appointees or whatever unless both sides agree on which person is to be special counsel. They could have insisted that the special counsel be Ace's pal Andy McCarthy, for example.

The Republicans CONTROL Congress. They have leverage. They choose to not use it.

--------------

I completely agree they have leverage. They have constitutional tools available to them to use. I do not like the idea of putting this in the Executive's hands. Use the tools that are in the Constitution. Anything else is a passive approach designed to avoid real accountability.

596 577 "If she were a pharma VP or a bankster with a private mailserver evading
records retention laws and destroying evidence the US Attorneys would be
lined up five deep to indict."

Technology investment banker Frank Quattrone noted the other day that he was indicted by Comey after Quattrone sent a brief e-mail to members of his team indicating that they should retain correspondence potentially subject to subpoena.

CLEAR EVIDENCE OF GUILT! MENS REA!

The federal government destroyed the accounting firm Arthur Andersen because two accountants shredded documents. No different in any meaningful way from Hillary's destroying the 30,000 emails.

Thousands of accountants and other employees were thrown out of work and their lives disrupted.

597 And the answers were mostly "I do not recall"

"...that's why I use a server. Oh, no, what a shame..."

599 you know what i could use a job, a govt job would be right up my ally as i really don't need to do or know shit to be paid a fortune.
i could run my own game with all the assets they afford me but not actually have any responsibilty for my job.

i could do that.

anyone hiring?

so hooray for Trump, thanks for getting them so pissed off at the people they are now opening flipping us the bird.

Lucky you. When you got redistricted out, I got redistricted into his district. Agree with your assessment.

He's my congressman too. Well, he's the congressman in the area I live in. I sure as hell didn't vote for him. And yes, you are slandering assholes comparing him to one. They can't help the job they do in life. He welcomes it.

608 589 so they are stating with a straight face a SOS doesn't realize the difference between classified and not classified?

Yes, among other things.

Are you kidding me? Are you effing kidding me? We go through so much security training to get those TS clearances, and training on how to handle classified material, and then have to pass tests every six months on how to handle classified material. There is no way that woman did not know what classified material was, and how to handle it, unless she demanded to be exempted from the training because she was a former Flotus and Senator.

Which would make sense, because of entitlement, and thus give her the future out of not knowing what to do. And the poor schmuck DS guy who had to sign off on her training to maintain her clearance would be the fall guy.

so, I guess it was a brilliant move.

The Constitution is useless now.

610 Pretty much the same situation WRT any government employee. And that goes for the armed forces, too. If the SHTF, they will not step up to leadership. They will follow orders, too.

Yes, this.

If the military is ordered to open fire on American citizens defending the constitution, they will. Enough of them will.

611 In the alternate universe in which Cummings is taken seriously as a legislator, sure.

-----------------

Even in the Many Worlds multiverse with a near infinite number of possibilities there will not exist a single one where Cummings is a respectable legislator, or, indeed, a decent human being.

612 the alternate universe in which Cummings is taken seriously as a legislator, sure.

Unfortunately, it's an alternate district, not universe, and the voters there do take him his skin color seriously, apparently

613 Caravaggio is the prime example that I use for explaining how one must separate the art from the artist. He was a murderer and a scoundrel, but he's one of my favorite painters.

Other examples I use are Glen Danzig and Michael Jackson.

Posted by: Brisco_County at July 07, 2016 02:53 PM (Rq8Pp)

614 Wow. I know I'm late to this thread, but 613 comments and only one of them about the artist

Just got back from Italy and learned a lot about Carravaggio. He was a member in good standing of the Moron Horde ca. "a long time ago". He painted ...Goliath as an apology to the pope for murdering someone in a bar fight. In fact, he was coming back to be forgiven and HE was murdered on the way.

That is actually his face on Goliath's head. He shows up in many of his paintings this way.
