Portrait

NYT: Meditation on President Obama’s Portrait    

Dawoud Bey’s photograph of the man who would soon be president was taken on a Sunday afternoon in early 2007, at Barack and Michelle Obama’s Hyde Park home in Chicago. The portrait is at once stately and informal. Mr. Obama’s hands are folded gracefully in his lap. He wears an elegant suit and white shirt, but no tie. He stares intensely into the camera.

The Museum of Contemporary Photography had commissioned Mr. Bey the year before to take a portrait of a notable Chicagoan. He had known the Obamas for several years and saw them periodically at social gatherings. Impressed with Mr. Obama’s keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic convention, Mr. Bey sensed a “growing air of expectancy” about him.

“When I was asked who I wanted to photograph,” Mr. Bey said, “it took me but a second to decide that I wanted to photograph him.”

    House Votes To Boost Well-Off Kids, Cut Out Poor Kids

    According to an analysis by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, that means a mom working full time at a minimum wage job would receive no help from the credit — because she would be earning only $14,500. Indeed, that mom would lose $1,725 under the new bill, while a family of four earning $150,000 would gain $2,200, according to the center’s analysis

    “The Israel Defense Forces denied targeting Al Jazeera, according to Sherif Mansour, of the Committee to Protect Journalists, which is investigating. But it was noted by Mansour and others that the gunfire came one day after Israel’s foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, said he wanted to ban the network for broadcasting “anti-Semitic incitement, lies, provocation and encouragement to terrorists.”

    There’s good reason for Israel wanting to shut down the kind of vivid coverage Al Jazeera is offering from Gaza City: Israel is losing the public relations war over its action in Gaza in a way I cannot remember seeing in any of its recent military actions. And part of that is due to the suffering of Palestinian civilians being depicted with an unprecedented sensitivity and prominence — at least, in American media.

    More journalists in Gaza and more social media are among the reasons given for the change.

    “There were only a couple Western journalists in Gaza when Israel invaded in 2008,” says Michael Calderone, Huffington Post senior media reporter. “Now, there are dozens covering every air strike in real-time through social media, complete with graphic images of Palestinian civilians, and even children, being killed and injured. So there’s a disconnect between Israeli officials’ repeated claims on TV about fighting terrorism and extensive footage we’re seeing of Israel bombing schools, shelters and hospitals in Gaza.” As Calderone sees it, such images have upended traditional packaging of stories out of Gaza.”

        Israel lost morale high ground… Think if this president was running Israel?
        He would have SPEC Ops blow up tunnels, Delta Force running missions inside Gaza to defeat Hamas.
        That’s it…
        But Bibi is like Dick Cheney, and the abused become the abusers.

      Thank you Mr.Bobfr for the updates.

      The news is just horrific; seeing babies screaming, bodies covered in blood, and adults crying profusely while running for shelter.

      I have some residents who are cheering Bibi on, very pleased about what he is doing to the people of Gaza. They tend to meet up in the lobby to speak high praises for the slaughter that is taking place against humanity.

      I can only pray, that what ever time I have left on this journey called life, that I will never allow my heart to be heartened to a point, that I could boldly stand, and cheer for the deaths of other human beings.

      Too many people are immune to human suffering.

    Funny that Gallup is claiming that those who claim to know more about the Israel/Gaza conflict support Israel while those who claim not to know are higher. Maybe it would occur to idiotic Gallup pollsters that most of those who support Israel are fox news viewers and go on sites like Jihad Watch. Gallup = run by right wingers.

    Israel: Leaders of international diplomacy…..

    In a statement on Wednesday, Brazil condemned what it said was a “disproportionate use of force” by Israel in its Gaza Strip offensive by pulling out its ambassador from Tel Aviv for “consultation.” The country is the second country to recall its ambassador from Israel; Ecuador did so earlier in the week. At first, the official reaction from Israel appeared sanguine. “Brazil is a friend, but we think its position is not balanced,” Israel’s general consul in São Paulo, Yoel Barnea, said according to the Wall Street Journal, adding that Israel should have a right to defend itself from the thousands of missiles being fired at it by Hamas and other Palestinian groups.

    Things soon took a turn for the worse. “This is an unfortunate demonstration of why Brazil, an economic and cultural giant, remains a diplomatic dwarf,” Israeili Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said on Thursday, the Jerusalem Post reports. “The moral relativism behind this move makes Brazil an irrelevant diplomatic partner, one who creates problems rather than contributes to solutions.” That insult wasn’t the worst that Israel had reserved for Brazil, however. In an interview with the Brazilian media, Palmor brought up the most humiliating moment in recent Brazilian history – this summer’s stunning World Cup semifinal loss to Germany.

    “Israel’s response is perfectly proportioned in accordance with international law,” Palmor said in an interview with the Jornal Nacional TV show late Thursday. “This is not football. In football, when a game ends in a draw, you think it is proportional, but when it finishes 7-1 it’s disproportionate. Sorry to say, but not so in real life and under international law.”

    Please watch……powerful video:

I feel that I can at least try a little to stand hearing about it, maybe paying witness to it. I agree it is painful and I could not tolerate a steady intake of this misery and blood and death. I honor the human spirit and endurance. Make it stop.

    For any who are unclear about why agreement on a cease fire hasn’t been reached will be no wiser atter listening to the Ban ki Moon John Kerry Presser delivered in diplo-speak. Here is a translation:

    Israel refused a cease-fire because they didn’t like the terms.. Their desired cease-fire called for ending Hamas rocket fire immediately but allowed Israeli troops to continue finding and destroying tunnels. Israeli troops staying within Gaza.

    The Palestinians idea was that a cease-fire meant ALL sides stopped military action and israeli troops withdraw. Rafah gate into Egypt to open immediately or within an enforceable and defined timetable.

    Yup…as I suspected. Yet all the media, especially the AP and others rushed to report this. That’s why I always caution folks to wait until SOS Kerry speaks before retweeting stuff from media outlets. They more often than not do not have their facts correct – and sometimes the misinformation is deliberate.

    Just FYI – I am listening to Kerry’s presser live, which is why I can confidently post Laura Rozen’s tweet – which I have assessed to be accurate, as stated by John Kerry.

        July 25, 2014 at 4:19 pm

        Well, false reporting has become a cottage industry in and of itself. Certain factions stand to benefit when false reports are allowed to fester and metastasize in the media. If things are going well, the media’s revenue goes down because people no longer tune in. That is true, not just for the US, but for any where.

        So the media on either side are highly motivated to give an appearance of more conflict, more controversy, more disagreement than there actually is. That’s what I’ve been trying to tell certain folks on Twitter, but they choose to dismiss what I’m saying.

    Darrell Issa’s Crushing Defeat: Investigators Find Obama Adviser Didn’t Violate Law

    Bloomberg reported, “A special investigator’s office says it has found no evidence that David Simas, a top political aide to the president, violated a law that prohibits federal workers from engaging in partisan political activities. The White House Office of Political Outreach and Strategy “appears to be operating in a manner that is consistent with the Hatch Act,” said Carolyn Lerner, a lawyer at the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, whose job is to enforce that law and protect whistle-blowers.”

    FAIRMONT, W.Va. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin is being sued by one of his brothers, who says the West Virginia Democrat and another brother never repaid a $1.7 million loan intended to keep the family’s carpet business afloat.

    Dr. John Manchin II filed the lawsuit in Marion County against the senator and Roch Manchin.

    The lawsuit, filed Wednesday, says Joe and Roch Manchin received a loan of more than $1.7 million from John Manchin in the late 1980s to help the then-struggling business with the promise of repayment. No payments have been made.

    John Manchin says that a July 2012 agreement made by the brothers allowed him to take one-third interest in coal and other related businesses by Joe and Roch Manchin if there was a delay in repayment.

    But the lawsuit says the brothers’ general partnership was dissolved without John Manchin’s knowledge, with funds and assets transferred to a partnership controlled by Joe Manchin and his son, Joseph Manchin IV.

    Clueless in Florida

    In an extraordinary — and extraordinarily awkward — failure of basic situational awareness, a U.S. congressman apparently mistook American government officials for Indian government officials during a congressional hearing.

    As first reported by Foreign Policy magazine, freshman Rep. Curt Clawson (R-FL) spoke to State Department official Nisha Biswal and Commerce Department official Arun Kumar as if they were Indian government officials at a House Foreign Affairs hearing on Thursday.

    “I’m familiar with your country. I love your country. And I understand the complications of so many languages and so many cultures and so many histories all rolled up in one,” Clawson said. He added: “Anything I can do to make the relationship with India better, I’m willing and enthusiastic about doing so.”

    When he asked the American officials for cooperation from “your government,” Biswal appeared rather confused. “I think your question is to the Indian government,” she said, “and we certainly share your sentiments and we certainly will advocate that on behalf of the U.S. government.”

    Clawson took office on June 25, replacing Rep. Trey Radel (R), who resigned after getting arrested for cocaine possession last fall.

      The recently appointed FL Rep could have been high. If not, what was Clawson’s problem for such confusion???

        ‘what was Clawson’s problem for such confusion?’

        The fact he couldn’t be bothered to prepare himself before going into the meeting – well other than with a bunch of generalized platitudes.

      Kind of like some of the politicians who speaks bad about African Americans, gets caught, and then he says; I love those people, some of my best friends are the Negro.

      Leave it to a politician to continually give us the meaning of “ignorance.”

      The truth is nothing has changed, save for a few gray hair for the POTUS.

      The media? still full of immature and unsophisticated journalists.
      The pundits? still bias and showing a lack of intellectual curiosity and analysis
      The GOP? still buried under the weight of the elephant in the room, the racist teabaggers
      The RWN? crazier as ever
      Sarah Palin and John McCain? not in the WH then, not in the WH now
      McLoss? still pissed because he is not winning; besides he is still senile
      Palin? still irrelevant
      POTUS? Consistent throughout.

      Nothing has changed save for more racists showing their true colors.

        My sisters tell me they used to wait around three to four city blocks to see Mr. JB.
