Mike Strautmanis directed our attention to key people with whom to foster relationships: Kareem
Dale, who was appointed to deal with the arts specifically; and Valerie Jarrett, a close confidante
and advisor to the First Family, who connects directly to the Oval Office.
He also introduced Yosi Sergant, who was instrumental in arranging the briefing. Yosi had just left
the Office of Public Engagement to serve as Communications Director at the National
Endowment for the Arts (NEA), noting that he represents the commitment to bring in people not
traditionally part of the political process to share their talents and skills. He recognized that Yosis
efforts had made the campaign soar with arts work beyond what could have happened with
traditional political consultants. With Yosi and Anita Decker (Director of Government Affairs at the
NEA) in place, he explained, people very close to the President are involved in the effort.
“Q: William Cleveland, Center for the Study of Art & Community, noted that he appreciated
Strautmaniss words about seeking advice, input and connections. He suggested the people in
the room equaled a think tank to serve the administrations aims, and asked how in practical
terms we could connect to the administrations policy work.
A: Mike Strautmanis described two paths. First, there are formal, set pieces of work such as the
healthcare debate, efforts to reduce energy costs and the commitment to community service. In
these areas, the administration wants to bring people in informally to advise and offer
perspectives and to receive updates on impact. The administration wants to know whats missing
or doesnt make sense, and will reach out periodically as issues come up.
Second, through Kareem Dale, there is a conduit to the White House and the Obama
Administration, to initiate contact and stay in touch via email and phone. The administration has
an agenda, but there are things activists know and are involved in that the administration cant
know directly, such as ways to communicate with people and how to motivate them culturally.”
***I just noted this little gem that I hadn’t before. Notice the word WHITE.
A: Joseph Reinstein noted that the Office of Legal Affairs has sometimes been annoyed at the
Social Secretarys office restricting the number of politicos who can come to events to make room
for others. Music students and faculty from Berkeley, Julliard and Oberlin attended the Stevie
Wonder tribute, for instance. Part of delivering on the promise to be the peoples house, he told
us, is to be responsive to the community and public, so inclusion is a major objective and
criterion for every event. The guest list is no longer just VIP and white.
She's his handler... standing in for the radical Marxist, Chicago elite and just following the program set in motion years ago designed to destroy the USA - it is that just now they are beginning to use the artsy crowd to design the propaganda under implied threat of losing their Federal funding.
There is an upcoming show on TV - I can't remember which channel - maybe Discovery - highlighting the rise of American Fascists and Nazis. Probably will have shots of Tea Parties included.
sort of the puppeteer and the puppet?
A handler is primarily a go between, but also takes on nursemade duties if necessary. The handlee only does what he has been trained to do, nothing more. The real puppeteer is off stage - the handler merely stands in for the puppeteer. But Hussein is certainly a puppet.
Sunday at 9pm is the “American Nazis” show on Nat. Geo channel.
Emphasis placed on removing impediments with projects
Geez, paragraphs are your friend.
Old time bump from 2009....Obama art/propaganda meeting thread.
