Public art: “Arid and ugly”

I could roll out dozens of examples but you’ve probably seen a few dozen yourself: giant nuts and bolts, swooping whatevers, steel beams colored to look… And to think they were promoted by the Soviet Union.

“…in the 1930s members of CPUSA (the Communist Party of the USA) got instructions from Moscow to promote non-representational art so that the US’s public spaces would become arid and ugly.

“…the Soviets, following the lead of Marxist theoreticians like Antonio Gramsci, took very seriously the idea that by blighting the U.S.’s intellectual and esthetic life, they could sap Americans’ will to resist Communist ideology and an eventual Communist takeover.”

And now we not only have “arid and ugly” public art but we have several serious political candidates pushing socialism beyond the Social Security System we’re all used to. Despite socialist Venezuala’s ongoing collapse. Not so laughable is it?

Texas exports more oil than it imports

This report says it’s the first time ever, but I have trouble believing that. There were the early booms and World War II ramped up production as well.

“Meanwhile, however, Texas is on track to become the biggest oil producer after Russia and Saudi Arabia, according to production estimates by HSBC, quoted by CNN.”

Jury Tampering

Manafort’s jury is undergoing a little old-fashioned arm-twisting.

“Why do you suppose seven news organizations–all liberal, presumably–wanted to know who the jurors are and where they live? They are worried that the jury, having heard the evidence, may not render the ‘right’ verdict, i.e., the one that helps the Democratic Party.

“So they want to know who the jurors are so they can apply pressure on them through mob action, newspaper denunciations, online harassment and so on. This is how today’s Democratic Party operates.”

Scumbags.

UPDATE:  No surprise then that Manafort was found guilty on 8 counts while escaping 10 others. After the establishment media had turned the screws. So much for American justice.

People would rather watch Spongebob

Fake News is really taking it in the shorts, no matter Stelter, Tapper or whiny Acosta.

“CNN’s ace primetime lineup hosts Anderson Cooper and Fredo Cuomo have to be biting their pillows at night being beaten handley by the History Channel which…had 1.06 million viewers in primetime while CNN scored 992,000 average viewers, most of whom were probably stuck at an airport with nothing else to watch. The network didn’t fare much better in the ratings for its daytime programming, finishing in sixth place, lagging far behind Fox News, MSNBC, and Spongebob Squarepants.”

The Alt-Left controls journalism

Ever wonder why the Mediacrats focus so much attention on the alt-right?

Gamergate used to be a debate about the alt-left’s takeover of journalism. Now that the alt-left controls journalism, period, it’s become a national debate about fake news.

“Sarah Jeong’s racism isn’t an isolated incident. It’s a culture that is taking over newsrooms. The complete disregard for facts, the pervasive contempt for the political opposition, the impassioned victimhood, and the ravening hatred poorly disguised as comedy now defines the media.

“And so we don’t talk about the alt-left, because when we talk about the alt-left, we’re talking about the media.”
