    A Middle Eastern woman was caught surveilling a U.S. port of entry on the Mexican border holding a sketchbook with Arabic writing and drawings of the facility and its security system, federal law enforcement sources tell Judicial Watch. The woman has been identified as 23-year-old Leila Abdelrazaq, according to a Customs and Border Patrol (CPB) report obtained by JW this week. Abdelrazaq appeared to have two accomplices, a 31-year-old man named Gabriel Schivone and a 28-year-old woman named Leslie Mcafee. CBP agents noticed the trio "observing the facilities" at the Port of Mariposa in Nogales, Arizona on December 2. Schivone...

    WASHINGTON–From street art to coloring books, Sen. Ted Cruz’s fans have creative ways of praising him. Now you can add a hip-hop anthem to the list.Entitled “Time for Truth”–like Cruz’s autobiography–the nearly five-minute jam is written straight out of Cruz’s presidential campaign platform. It also calls the senator “a gift from God,” fighting career politicians and “[leading] us back to freedom, our Constitution and Jesus.”“Are you fed up with the excuses? / Ted Cruz has got your back. / Standing for America on marriage and Super PACs / Taking down the Washington Cartel / He’s fighting for our well being...
  • New Army Commercial Sends Pitiful Message to the World

    When I saw this commercial, I honestly thought perhaps the Army is now making ads specifically targeting homosexuals. (We all know that it's just a matter of time.) I'm definitely ---not--- saying that graphic artists are all homosexuals. However...

    Nick Cardy, a revered and influential comic book artist known best for his DC Comics work in the '50s, '60s and '70s, passed away Sunday at age 93, according to multiple industry reports... At DC Comics, Cardy worked on the first 43 issues of the original "Teen Titans" series as either a penciler or inker (or both), in a run lasting from 1966 to 1973. He also drew the first 39 issues of the initial "Aquaman" solo series, along with extensive cover illustrations on DC books including "Action Comics," "Batman" and "Justice League of America." Cardy wrote two issues of...

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | August 12, 2013 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    Homosexual activists and advocates often state that they merely want recognition and certain legal rights, and that churches and other objectors to their life style remain free to have their opinions and state them in a free culture. And any expressed fears regarding compulsory recognition or punitive measures directed against objectors are dismissed as fear mongering.Never mind that these fears are based in real experiences in Canada and Europe where clergy have been arrested and fined for presenting the biblical case against homosexuality in the pulpits of their own churches or the pages of their bulletins.In the end we who...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 6/4/13 | Susan Ferrechio
    Hiring an artist to paint portraits of Bono and Michael Jordan is just one of the unique ways the Internal Revenue Service spent $49 million on employee conferences over a two year period, according to a just-disclosed audit report. Page 12 of the 63-page report, issued Tuesday, documents $135,000 to hire speakers for a $4.1 million conference in Anaheim, Calif. The speakers fees included $17,000 for an artist to “create a unique painting that reinforces his message of unlearning the rules, breaking the boundaries and freeing the thought process to find creative solutions to challenges.”

    In the lore of the ancient Romans, Horatius was a soldier who single-handedly fought off an invading army. The Etruscans had attacked in order to impose a despot on Rome and, by holding them back while his comrades destroyed the bridge that was the only practical route to the city, this single warrior saved the free republic. Obamacare is certainly the bridge via which the forces of despotism plan to “fundamentally transform” the United States, and a decorated Iraq veteran named Matt Sissel may be the Horatius who prevents them from crossing. This 32-year-old artist, businessman, and holder of the...

    Few things are more obnoxious than atheists lecturing Christians about what they think the Bible says or should say. One of those however would be an atheist artist lecturing Christians in service of his political master’s dogma. Shepard Fairey barely deserves the title of artist. He’s the hack who designed the Obama “Hope” poster that helped usher in the Age of Obama. Fairey received two years’ probation and a $25,000 fine for contempt of court in a lawsuit related to that poster, which he based on a copyrighted Associated Press photo. His body of work smacks of Soviet Union-style propaganda...

    Joe Kubert, a titan among comic-book artists whose work stretched from the Golden Age of the superhero to the gritty realism of the graphic novel, died on Sunday in Morristown, N.J. He was 85. The cause was multiple myeloma, his son Adam said. Mr. Kubert, who first plied his trade as a teenager in the 1930s and continued drawing in the hospital during his final illness, was among the last of the generation of comic-book illustrators whose work helped define the genre in the years before World War II. “He’s the longest-lived continuously important contributor to the field,” Paul Levitz,...

    Popular conservative artist Jon McNaughton has released a new painting, the latest in his controversial series of anti-Obama artwork. The Empowered Man—which shows President Obama watching in horror as a thirty something white male, standing in front of the White House holds up the U.S. constitution in one hand and a wad of cash in the other—was released this week. “I wanted this painting to reflect the hope many Americans are having that we can steer our country back on track,” McNaughton emailed BuzzFeed. “I used real models and it took a couple of months to paint.” The Empowered Man...

    Artist Shepard Fairey, who created the iconic "Hope" campaign poster featuring then-Sen. Barack Obama for the 2008 presidential campaign, pleaded guilty in Manhattan Federal Court on Friday to one count of criminal contempt for destroying documents, manufacturing evidence and other misconduct.See the story here. I know it's not spelled the same way, but it looks like Mr. Fairey may get a chance to live out his name behind the slammer (that's a lot of innuendo for one sentence!). I whipped up a couple of parting gifts for him... This one is from me to liberals

Western Nevada College offers a fascinating glimpse into the Burning Man culture of self-expression and self-reliance through a photography exhibit that portrays the art, costumes and energy of the event. “The Culture of Burning Man,” showing through Oct. 15, is made possible by the Black Rock Arts Foundation, and is curated by local artist Maria Partridge.

    It’s easy to dismiss Burning Man as nothing more than a bizarre hippie love-fest that takes place deep in the Nevada desert every year the week before Labor Day. But doing so misses the fact that it’s an amazingly successful enterprise--and, as such, has a thing or two to teach about how to inspire creative people and create a great product. Since it first began 25 years ago, Burning Man has grown larger every year (if you ignore the slight dip in recession-scarred 2009). It’s grown so much that this year, for the first time ever, the organization had to...
