Edward Collier 1699
Edward Collier (as Edwaert Colyer, Breda 1642-London 1708) was a Dutch vanitas and trompe d'oeil painter. The full title of this painting is, A Trompe l'Oeil of Newspapers, Letters and Writing Implements on a Wooden Board. See a sample vanitas by Collier, here . American trompe l'oeil painters are
William Harnett (1848 –1892) — always the sentimental favorite, and John Peto (1854–1907) and John Haberle (1856–1933). Trompe l'oeil painters today surpass the old masters if we use convincing ultra-realism as the measure.
Just as any teevee show about black holes must contain the phrase, "nothing can escape, not even light," any mention of trompe l'oeil must note it's French for "fool the eye." Whether it really is or not Remus doesn't know but it's a rule he doesn't take lightly.

In the mid-1800s
Thomas de Quincey unknowingly summed up our current administration quite nicely:
If once a man indulges himself in murder, very soon he comes to think little of robbing; and from robbing he comes next to drinking and Sabbath-breaking, and from that to incivility and procrastination. Once begun upon this downward path, you never know where you are to stop. Many a man has dated his ruin from some murder or other that perhaps he thought little of at the time.
Thomas de Quincey via en.wikiquote.org (Hat tip: Paul Shlichta at americanthinker.com)
The administration hasn't come to the point of incivility, but startling allegations are being made about the
Benghazi murders and the unraveling coverup. One of the more plainly put, if sensationalist, summaries comes from Dave Hodges at the fundamentalist right Common Sense Show in this article, They Came, They Murdered, They Covered It Up:
When General Hamm received his "stand down" orders from Panetta on behalf of Obama, he defiantly made plans to go ahead with the rescue and was arrested within minutes of contravening the order by his second in command, General Rodriquez.
Out to sea, Admiral Gayouette, the commander of Carrier Strike Group Three, was preparing to provide intelligence and air cover for General Hamm's rescue team in violation of his standing orders and he was promptly relieved of command for allegations of inappropriate leadership judgment.
Both men are being held today in undisclosed locations. As an aside, if there is any kind of a silver lining in these very dark clouds it appears that much of the senior military leadership has had enough of the traitorous Obama and his den of corrupt criminals and some of them are willing to risk career in the name of actually serving the American people.
Mr. Hodges reminds us Hillary Clinton has been connected to a string of suspicious and suspiciously convenient deaths in the past. We also recall former president Bill Clinton is accused by some of handing military secrets to China while in office, and former Secretary of Defense
Leon Panetta's public involvement with a self declared Marxist organization, and president Obama's alliances with terrorist revolutionaries and malodorous race supremacists.
Mr. Hodges's version of the Benghazi event is volatile stuff. It describes near-treason if not treason itself. If the allegations centering on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are substantiated, and if principals in the administration are shown to be complicit, they betrayed their oath and their countrymen on behalf of an active belligerent. It's alleged elsewhere untraceable foreign accounts are a substantial source of their political funding, which may speak to the question of embedded duplicity on a more quantitative basis.
What difference at this point does it make?
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
Ms. Clinton needs to understand, deeply and abidingly, "it" makes a difference at this or any other point. The nation should not accept the "mistakes were made" brushoff this time, nor apologies and resignations, nor even outright terminations. We're running out of dirt to draw a line in. If all or most of this is true, it warrants aggressive and decisive legal proceedings to remove co-conspirators from office on an emergency basis, and bulldog prosecution for all involved, top to bottom and side to side.
John Kerry's State Department has used the International Traffic in Arms Regulations to force Defense Distributed to remove their 3D "gun printing" software from the internet . DC usually relies on the Interstate Commerce Clause to infringe on the right to keep and bear arms but here the State Department claims jurisdiction because, by posting the blueprints on line they meet the "at least one foreigner could see it" test. It's a stretch, even as a work-around. If State is trying to impress us with their diligence, we notice their regulations didn't prevent secret engine control specs from being transferred illegally by Pratt & Whitney to China for their copy of the US Cobra helicopter—known as the Z-10. There are other examples.
As a legal maneuver it's like charging a person with drunk driving while he sits in his living room because he has car keys in his pocket and the opportunity to buy a six pack. It's a theoretical theory of a pre-pre non-crime. The "arms trafficking" rap amounts to publishing documents. Ridiculous. What's next for these prior restraint thugs, literacy? And where does DC find the time for this, aren't they busy enough sending military aircraft and armor and missiles to foreign countries?
Aside from headline seekers, foreigners aren't hungering to make a clunky, low quality, single shot, one-time use, totally lame .380 which is grossly inferior to its buck-a-copy WWII namesake in every way. No self-respecting warrior would be seen with either one. As an engineering exercise it's sort of interesting but like the original, the Liberator would be useful only to get a real gun, if it didn't fail catastrophically during the attempt. The printed plastic gun is show biz, a test case to be charitable, more likely a spit in the eye by both sides.
Before State intervened on Thursday the software had been on line for about a week, long enough for it to be downloaded and reposted many times over. Yawn. The product proves 3D printed plastic firearms is a dead end, although "printing" ready-to-use metal firearms with laser sintering isn't far off. None of this is actually necessary however, guns are neither scarce nor prohibitively expensive, nor are proven models difficult to make even for garage-scale metalworking shops. In fact, some combat arms were designed for such low-capability manufacture, the Sten and the PPS for two.
Manufacturing expertise in America is widespread and suitable equipment is plentiful, but clandestine arms making would be attractive only if there were a successful confiscation—a dubious proposition in itself—by, say, an army of occupation or a
coup d'état or lawless tyranny. In any event, iffy plastic single shots wouldn't be the product of choice. DC is being either stunningly ignorant or purposely alarmist, but give 'em credit, they can be both simultaneously.
Comments on events since Woodpile Report 320 was first posted.
In an effort to give ordinary conspiracies a good name, a distinguished assemblage in congress is attempting to refloat the wreckage of the last gun control bill, "distinguished" meaning illiterate UCLA U2 grads, unintelligable ghetto rats, carwash dropouts and other two-legged piles of lying garbage. The effort is led by an undead fishwife cadaver named Pelosi, noted scold and runner-up for Miss Creosote of 1959, and her fellow creepster, a so far unlanced carbuncle named Schumer who effects peer-over reading glasses in low comedy lunges at gravitas. With so much of the populace now voting at gun shops, this suggests masochism is in play.
The Associated Press, a Reuters captive doing pro bono PR work for DC, so eager to please it all but cleaned White House urinals with a razor blade, which composed news as if it was and should be the administration's background music, was shocked to discover freedom of the press doesn't actually mean, you know, freedom of the press. Turns out Holder, AP's ever-suspicious lover, revealed his gumshoes had tapped their telephone conversations for weeks. AP sent an angry letter to Holder. Unperfumed. Uh oh. Remus sure hopes these two kids make up, they made such an attractive couple, but he suspects AP may look for justice elsewhere, perforce.

The EPA's new environmental regulations reduce the amount of airborne fine-particle matter from 15 micrograms to 12 micrograms per cubic meter of air. This means that most wood burning stoves would now fall into a class that would be deemed unacceptable under these new draconian measures.

Closing the gun control loophole - The Missouri State House voted to send Governor Jay Nixon what could arguably be the strongest defense against federal gun control Second Amendment measures in American history. The votes in both the House and Senate are by a strong veto-proof majority. As law, HB436 would nullify virtually every federal gun control measure on the books – or planned for the future, reports

Your ownership of the monies that you have deposited with the bank is transferred to the bank and all you have is the right to demand its repayment. And, if the bank fails to repay your monies, your only remedy is to sue the bank and if the bank is insolvent you get nothing, explains Matthias Chang in this article, No Bank Deposits Will Be Spared from Confiscation, at Global Research.
Amendments contrary to the Bill of Rights are not Constitutional as per the original agreement made after the revolution. The Bill of Rights was meant to be sacrosanct, untouchable — period. No Federal law, no State law and no Amendment can be enforced that violates those protections. The Bill of Rights was not created as a rule book for what the people can do; it was created as a rule book for what government cannot do. Once you remove hard fast restrictions like the Bill of Rights from the picture, you give the government license to make its own rules, says Brandon Smith in this article, Statists Use Twisted Logic To Attack The Bill Of Rights, at Alt Market.

Magazine ad for the 1929 Jordan Playboy
Jordan Motor Company (1916-1931) was a design and assembly outfit located in Cleveland Ohio using outside suppliers for components and subassemblies, not uncommon for the era. Today we'd call it a "screwdriver plant." Jordan relied on racy styling and provocative ads, the underlying vehicles were unremarkable. The ad below is one of the more tame examples.

After the Crash of '29
Remus has been reading news articles and editorials written before and after the Crash of October 1929. Many of the warnings written before the crash are so eerily similar to what's being written today they could be recycled nearly as-is, but the ones written after are more instructive. Here are excerpts from two editorials, one written three weeks after the crash, the other nearly a year later.
What bankers and brokers know very well, however, is that the Federal Reserve is the body primarily to thank for the disaster which the stock market has just gone through. The responsibility of the Federal Reserve, weighty as it is, must be shared by the Coolidge and Hoover administrations. For two years and more, while calamity was preparing, the country was again and again assured from Washington that everything was all right — industry prosperous, business good, savings increasing, the outlook fine.
Editorial, The Nation, November 13, 1929
Everyone recognizes now that this is not a new economic era, in the sense that old-fashioned principles and penalties of economic law have been abolished. The new inventions in the way of manufacturing credit are seen to have been merely a novel way of repeating the very old practices of abuse of credit.

Tinfoil hats were right, the IRS admits targeting Tea Party, et al -
[IRS statement and relevant facts from the Associated Press, here .]
This timeline reveals at least two extremely unethical actions by the IRS. One, as early as 2010, they targeted groups for political purposes. Two, they willfully and knowingly lied to Congress for years despite being aware that Congress was investigating this practice.
Rep. Charles Boustany via Stephen Ohlemacher at hosted.ap.org
On June 29, 2011, IRS staffers held a briefing with senior agency official Lois G. Lerner in which they described giving special attention to instances where "statements in the case file criticize how the country is being run." Lerner, who oversees tax-exempt groups for the agency, raised objections and the agency revised its criteria a week later.
Juliet Eilperin at washingtonpost.com
On Jan, 25, 2012, the criteria for flagging suspect groups was changed to, "political action type organizations involved in limiting/expanding Government, educating on the Constitution and Bill of Rights, social economic reform/movement."
Stephen Ohlemacher at hosted.ap.org
It is difficult to credit Lois Lerner's claim that this was merely an error and not politically motivated. Imagine if the NAACP and the United Negro College Fund got hit with this sort of treatment and the IRS denied a racial motive while acknowledging it had deliberately chosen groups whose names contained synonyms for "black."
