Now on display at the Sun Gallery in Hayward…

Statement of the Artist: James O’Donnell III If one has spent decades obsessively following politics, economic trends, cultural shifts, and global war, as this artist has, one ends up witnessing an infinite galaxy of plundering Orwellian swine murderously choking The Green, Gaea, Liberty, the Future, the Life, out of our planet… gobbling up the biosphere. In painting this piece — mindful… Read More »Now on display at the Sun Gallery in Hayward…

PUBLIC EDUCATORS SPEAK OUT AGAINST ONE SLICK DEMOCRAT, LIZ “CHEROKEE” WARREN.

“Hope and Change” redux (fool me twice, shame on me)… Forget her recent policy flip-flops marked by a fair amount of backtracking and waffling on key proposals (including Medicare-for-All), here is a fundamental truth about Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s education stance: the Massachusetts senator has long stood with Betsy DeVos, Arne Duncan, and the school privatization crowd. Specifically, Warren has long… Read More »PUBLIC EDUCATORS SPEAK OUT AGAINST ONE SLICK DEMOCRAT, LIZ “CHEROKEE” WARREN.

Liberals, test your PIQ (Political Intelligence Quotient)!

Select one: A) I like Joe Biden and think he is our strongest candidate if we want to defeat Trump in 2020! B) I’m not crazy about Biden, but I’d sure as heck vote for him over Trump! C) I like Buttigieg/Harris/Beto/Gillibrand/Booker/Klobuchar/Hickenlooper/DINO #9-21 the most! D) I think Sen. Elizabeth Warren is a strong liberal candidate and our best hope… Read More »Liberals, test your PIQ (Political Intelligence Quotient)!

“FREEDOM GAS” — WHAT THE FRACK??!

Unsurprisingly, Donald Trump has continued where President Barack Obama and Sec. Hillary Clinton left off, pushing natural gas at home and abroad, ultimately dooming the biosphere… only Trump calls it “freedom gas,” because that’s what his political brand demands. (Obama called it a “bridge fuel” essential to leaving dirty coal behind… a bogus industry talking point, but the mainstream bought… Read More »“FREEDOM GAS” — WHAT THE FRACK??!

MINIMIZING GENOCIDE…

Unsurprisingly, Newsweek has emphasized a report that drastically undercounts the victims of Washington’s warmongering in the Middle East. But if we look back over the records of Trump’s three predecessors alone, we see a virtual holocaust of Arab Muslims (predominantly): millions of innocents whose lives were cut short by Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. Consider the toll… Read More »MINIMIZING GENOCIDE…

AS MEMORIAL DAY APPROACHES, A HUMANITARIAN REMINDER…

In modern wars, 85-90% of deaths are civilians — per the United Nations and international aid organizations including the International Committee of the Red Cross. From a 2014 policy statement issued by the nearly 150-year old, 25,000-member strong, physician-founded organization, the American Public Health Association (APHA): “The proportion of civilian deaths and the methods for classifying deaths as civilian are… Read More »AS MEMORIAL DAY APPROACHES, A HUMANITARIAN REMINDER…

Courtesy of The Real News Network, the following exchange, beginning with an excerpt of Donald Trump being interviewed on FoxNews: DONALD TRUMP: “…don’t kid yourself.

Pareidolia 1: Fantastic Dreamscape Featuring “Good” and “Evil,” and Scenes from the Natural World

This painting represents another of my experiments in image-finding. The process begins with the creation of a purely abstract composition, with no specific objective in mind, save for the generation of an aesthetically pleasing surface with interesting color relationships, movement, depth of space, and the suggestion of form(s). Once I’m satisfied that I’ve created a well-balanced abstract composition that succeeds… Read More »Pareidolia 1: Fantastic Dreamscape Featuring “Good” and “Evil,” and Scenes from the Natural World

Creating a monster — what Russiagate has wrought…

Noam Chomsky, Princeton University Prof. Emeritus Stephen F. Cohen, and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald have all noted the devastation that Russiagate has wrought on U.S.-Russia relations — noting that even if the worst of the neo-McCarthyite allegations were true, they would amount to a “molehill” that has been made into a “mountain” (a veritable Vesuvius, threatening to go Pompeii on… Read More »Creating a monster — what Russiagate has wrought…
