NYCAdvocateNew York City held a special election today to determine the city’s next Public Advocate.

FeministArt-TheyFeministArt-KahnFeministArt-EmpressOne of the works presented at C24’s “Transfigured” exhibition was Abortion Goddess, by Jaishri Abichandani.

Would that the 50 million+ babies aborted in the US (since 1973) had their own #Me Too movement.

Would that feminists understood, that ultimate power and liberation are from the Spirit — rather than reducing it to just their body, which only leads to new forms of slavery.

 

AmazonNYCAmazonNYC2‘Progressive’ politicians and activists have made New York the tip of the spear for a self-defeating and community-defeating putsch, that might even exceed that of Bezos and Amazon.

Amazon’s departure from plans in Long Island City might be chalked up to capitalist animal spirits being slayed by progressive animal spirits.

One local pol suggested that “Queen’s values” and Amazon were not a “good fit.” One might ask: “Are Queen’s ‘values’ good for Queens?” Are progressive values no values at all?

bordeauxgrandcrubordeauxgrandcru1Grands Crus de Bordeaux are out with their 2016 wines. At a recent NYC tasting, we especially liked the Chateau Canon-La-Gaffeliere (Saint Emilion) and Chateau Durfort-Vivens (Margaux), as well as Chateau De Chantegrive (Graves).

The Chateau De Chantegrive “Caroline” (Blanc, 2016) was especially good when paired later with Nepalese Momos — matching up well with Jhol sauce and their big spices.

On this Day of Remembrance, the effects of radical liberalism and nationalism (including Zionism) continue to plague society — with people unwilling/able to see their wrongheadedness, and be oriented to a more truthful way of living?

“And the fire on the hearth, which has burnt low throughout the scene, leaps up into sudden brightness.”

OurikaThe engraving, made by French/German printmaker Alfred Johannot (c.1830), around the time of Delecroix’s: Liberty Leading the People, depicts a black Catholic nun in Morocco dialoguing with a ‘liberty’ scholar. She seems to be skeptical of his notions (see her eyes and hands), perhaps having found true freedom and enlightenment in communion with her God.

Coincidentally, there is presently an exhibition at Columbia University on the role played by black women in Modern 19th-century French art: Posing Modernity: The Black Model From Manet and Matisse to Today, at the Wallach Art Gallery.

For this and other important Old Master Prints, visit Woodside Fine Art.

HighTimes2HighTimesOne of America’s treasures is her black community, which today is the dominant influence in American culture. The driving force behind black greatness has always been a healthy dose of spirit (Holy Spirit). But at a time when black Americans have acquired enormous resources, opportunity and material power, there has sadly been an diminishing of that true (holy) spirit — because of activism (“loud and proud”) intent on building-up the self with unholy and malevolent spirits (42 million strong). The result is a community where black gold is becoming black mold.
