Well I think Putin has gotten his most current short term goal….a sympathetic buffoon in the US White House and “We the People” have handed that Buffoon a Congressional Majority.  “Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a bumpy night”

THE WEEK

Russian President Vladimir Putin has been playing an aggressive game of chess against the West. What’s he up to? Here’s everything you need to know:

How powerful is Putin?
In Russia, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, 64, rules like a czar, with near-total control of the country. A former KGB agent, he is a secretive, self-disciplined geopolitical strategist who, unlike most Russian men, doesn’t drink at all. He presides over a cult of personality that seems comical to outsiders — images of him shirtless on horseback, tracking down a Siberian tiger, or diving in the Black Sea to retrieve ancient artifacts are common in Russian media. But his macho nationalism resonates with the many Russians who longed for a strong leader after the chaos of the Soviet collapse. Putin’s regime is deeply entangled with the Russian oil industry and the country’s billionaire oligarchs; as a result, his…

Our Revolution

Druscilla,

Donald Trump campaigned on a promise to build a “big, beautiful wall,” and has talked openly about creating a “deportation force” that would have the ability to round up and deport millions of immigrants. Trump might just be the most anti-immigrant president our nation has seen in recent history.

President Obama has just six days left in office — just six days to take decisive action that could protect immigrants from Trump and his administration. So, today, on the Immigrant Justice National Day of Action, we’re raising our voices with progressive members of Congress to call on President Obama to take immediate action.

Protecting immigrants and their families has never been more urgent. Add your name alongside members of Congress in a letter calling on President Obama to take action in his final week in office.

There’s nothing Obama can do in his final days as President that would completely fix our broken immigration system, or dismantle the state-sanctioned deportation machine. But there are very specific actions he can take to protect us and show that families like mine matter. Here’s what President Obama can do during his final days in office:

  • Pardon permanent residents who are threatened with deportation as a result of minor criminal convictions
  • Put a definitive end to the practice of detaining immigrant families and close the detention centers in Texas and Pennsylvania
  • Use constitutional power to grant clemency to all individuals with federal non-violent, low-level drug offenses, and to pardon undocumented immigrants who are currently unable to receive an adjustment to their status

Add your name to stand with us in calling on President Obama to take action on immigration in his final days in office.

Our Revolution is committed to the fight to protect immigrants and their families. Thanks for taking action today.

En solidaridad,

Erika Andiola
Political Director

“Dark, brooding and romantic, the watercolors of Swedish art star Lars Lerin have an unsettling, febrile beauty in his memorable new show at the American Swedish Institute.”  source: Mary Abbe, is from the Star Tribune, Minneapolis, “Variety” Section, 29 Jan. 2016.

 

I didn’t research much on the artist, Gunnar states he is well know for his kindness but I didn’t look up what constitutes his acts of kindness.  However I did look at a lot of his artwork and was mesmerized by the Winter Scenes in particular.  I’d love to see an exhibition featuring his work in person and now that I know his name; I’ll keep a watch

lARS LERIN REALLY INTERESTS ME. ~~dru~~
