"I Crow Over All" - Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)

This week's Sunday Postcard Art challenge was "Eggs."

There is an underlying dark theme to this piece, corresponding to my current world view.

I Crow Over All

Because Nature is neither Good nor Evil.

Nature is merely reproduction and survival of the fittest.

I created this using GIMP 2.8.18.

"Drexit" - Postcard

(Click on image to enlarge)

I made a cartoon for the word Drexit, which is my variation on the word Brexit.

In 1972, the US Press exposed a conspiracy to rig the US Presidential Election.

In 2016, the US Press conspired to rig the US Presidential Primary Elections. They succeeded, and Americans don't care.

"Hillary - Seizure the Moment" - Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)

I made a cartoon version of my own Hillary Poster, similar to her official one, with radiating sun rays in green, the color of Saudi Arabia's flag.

My "Seizure the Moment" marketing sound bite (#SeizureTheMoment) is a reference to the head jerking episode that Hillary Clinton had on June 10, 2016 at a retail stop in DC, which appeared to be a mild seizure. During part of her seizure episode, her open eyes do not track together.

-----

And when the coronation was complete,
They made another leak...

Timing is everything.

All who endorsed her, can not un-ring the bell.

And I will ask this again: how far will the US Government / NSA / CIA go, to make sure Hillary is elected?

We have already seen the US Government order NSA collaborators Google, Twitter, and Facebook to censor information about the DNC emails leak, just like China, Turkey, etc. censor social media.

"Land of the Free" right?

Did you naively think those NSA collaborators were helping to "keep us safe" from Radical Islamic Terrorists?

Is there any employee left, in the CIA, NSA, NGA, FBI, whose first loyalty is to the United States Constitution? Or is all hope truly lost for this country?

Nathan Hale, September 22, 1776, before he was hanged:

"I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country."

That was when the word "Patriot" actually meant something. (Nathan Hale was born in Coventry, Connecticut)

President Abraham Lincoln, September 17, 1859 Speech at Cincinnati, Ohio:

"The people of these United States are the rightful masters of both Congresses and courts — not to overthrow the constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert that constitution."

Sadly, today's American "we the people" are okay with being slaves instead of masters.

"Clinton Bush Obama Baton Pass" - Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)

I made a cartoon showing the baton pass that has been ongoing with the United States Presidents since at least Bill Clinton. It wasn't until Barack Obama became President, that it became transparently obvious to me that these people are just actors playing a part, and someone else is calling the shots. Next in line is Hillary Clinton, whose medical problems, including seizures, appear to be a well kept secret by the US media. Not to worry: the wars will go on with no interruption. (Sarcasm.)

-----

Bill Clinton 1993 - 2001

G. W. Bush 2001 - 2009

Barack Obama 2009 - 2017
It's Historic!

Hillary Clinton 2017 - 2025
It's Herstoric!

Saudi Arabia
coup d'etat complete (without a shot being fired)
Collusion
Treason

Take everyone's eye off the ball. Get everyone to focus on the word "listen" and use the word "content" instead of "recorded phone call".

Obama: "Nobody's listening to the content of people's [recorded] phone calls. If the intelligence community then actually wants to listen to a phone call, they've got to go back to a federal judge [and then they can] do further probing [and listen to the content (recorded phone call)]."

"Bernie Hillary Wikileaks" - Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)

Tuesday July 26, 2016

"I officially nominate Hillary Clinton for President!"

"I'm no Ted Cruz! I have no dignity."

Bernie The Sellout Sanders

I heart (love) Hillary


What might it be?

Pay to Play?
Russian Uranium?
Saudi Arabia?
[redacted]?


Wednesday July 27, 2016

let the sun shine!

Wikileaks releases [redacted] and it will be too late for Bernie to take back his endorsement of Hillary.

...or they wait until Friday, when Hillary is the Democratic Party nominee for President.

The only question remaining after the leak: how far will the US Government / NSA / CIA go, to make sure Hillary is elected?

-----

Reference: DNC emails leak that show the US Democratic National Committee (DNC) conspired with the US Media (Washington Post, CNN, NBC, Politico, etc.) to make sure Hillary Clinton, and not Bernie Sanders, was the Democrat Party's candidate for the 2016 Presidential Election.

But that might not be the only thing that NBC, Monica Alba, and others in the US media have conspired to keep secret from the American people. More on that in a post later in time, regarding Hillary Clinton and an alleged apparent seizure caught on camera on June 10, 2016. (Note at the 33 second point of this NBC video, Monica Alba is looking across at someone, while everyone else is watching Hillary Clinton leaving. Note that at the 6 second point of Hannah Chanpong's video, Hillary Clinton's eyes do not track together.)

"Hillary Clinton / Saudi Arabia" - Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)

Have you read the redacted declassified 9/11 28 pages about Saudi Arabia yet, or are you too busy with more important things?

Have you read about the DNC emails leak that show the US Democratic National Committee (DNC) conspired with the US Media (Washington Post, CNN, NBC, Politico, etc.) to make sure Hillary Clinton, and not Bernie Sanders, was the Democrat Party's candidate for the 2016 Presidential Election, or are you too busy with more important things? (Although, in the end, it didn't matter, because Bernie Sanders turned out to be a Fraud and a Sellout to everything that he claimed he was against.)

Have you read about NSA collaborators Google, Twitter, and Facebook censoring information about the DNC emails leak, just like they do when China asks them to censor social media, or are you too busy with more important things?

It's your country, America. If you are too busy now, to find out what is going on, don't complain later in time, when the real change comes.

"Picnic Grounds and Summer Resorts" - Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)

This week's Sunday Postcard Art challenge was "Picnic."

This is also my entry for Tuesday's Treasures.

I started with a vintage advertisement page for Picnic Grounds and Summer Resorts, which used to be popular in the United States. I added a gingham pattern and plates. Then I added some bees, which always used to show up when my family had summer picnics in our backyard. I used friendly honey bees for this, but it was actually nasty Yellow Jackets that showed up for our outdoor dining.

I created this using GIMP 2.8.16.

The vintage images are from an Internet search. (See the side of my blog for links.)

A note to my fellow Americans: In case you didn't read it in the news, the US Government finally released the redacted declassified 9/11 28 pages. I urge everyone to read the document yourself, instead of blindly believing what the Media tells you it says about the Saudi Arabian Government! "It was clear from about 1996 that the Saudi Government would not cooperate with the United States on matters relating to Usama Bin Ladin." Doesn't the worst mass attack of civilians on US soil that ushered in the Patriot Act and wholesale spying on every American (including recording all of our phone calls) deserve the time it will take you to read the 28 pages? If not, all hope truly is lost for this country.

This week's Sunday Postcard Art challenge was "Beach Life/Sea Shells."

I made a beach theme piece that features a bathing beauty, seahorse and fish. It has no shells. My muse found no way to work them into this piece. The panels behind the letters are rectangular sections from old world maps.

The piece I made before the challenge was posted only contained Sea Shells, so I did not post that one to SPA.

-----

I wanted to post this before these very words (or something similar) start showing up in the US media. The United States Government has become so transparently predictable that they don't even bother trying to hide their charade anymore, and their formulaic script (narrative) is worse than that of a Hollywood B movie. Fortunately for them, most Americans nod their heads in agreement, with whatever story they get told by the US media, and don't question anything.

This month both the Republicans and Democrats will hold their National Convention to choose their candidate for the US Presidential election in November. After recent events that have occurred, I no longer see any reason to bother to vote. I never thought I would say that. But I also never thought that this country that I love would be spying on every single American, in violation of the US Constitution. And certain recent events have revealed other things that I never thought my Government would do.
