On Decolonizing Art: Everything Is Impossible Until It Happens
In "a seismic shift in the art world," fierce protests have forced the resignation of war profiteer and Whitney Museum vice-chair Warren Kanders, who made his fortune from body armor, bullets and so much teargas fired against innocents from Palestine to the southern border that artists renamed the Whitney's signature event "The Tear Gas Biennial." The move is part of a growing wave of resistance against "toxic philanthropy" by artists and activists vowing, "When we breathe we breathe together."

Put Down Your Swords: After 18 Years, the Senate Was Finally, Ingloriously Shamed Into Doing Right By 9/11 Responders
After unconscionably stalling for almost two decades - while 200 more people died - the Senate voted 97-2 Tuesday to re-authorize funds for the 9/11 first responders compensation fund through 2092, or effectively in perpetuity. The bittersweet victory came after multiple lobbying trips by sick and dying workers, and a tenacious Jon Stewart, to plead for what was rightly theirs; said demolition worker John Feal, "What I'm going to miss the most about D.C. is - nothing."

What He Hath Wrought
Remarkably, our tireless Il Douche is still spewing sick racist hate - in exquisite pot/kettle dissonance, the Squad are now " weak & insecure people" and "very racist troublemakers" - with the expected consequences of "go back to your country" outbursts sprouting like toxic weeds. A somber reminder as his white supremacy coils into the deep dark recesses of our country: "If multiracial democracy cannot be defended in America, it will not be defended elsewhere."

In the Face of Flaming Racism We Are Well and Truly Done With Decorum
Having seen the grotesque spectacle of a party of craven, slimy, old white bigots drop their careful masks, embrace their inner Klansman and furiously dance around reality by declaiming it's "unparliamentary" to call a vicious racist buffoon of a president a vicious racist buffoon of a president - and then seeing the House table impeachment - we wonder what it will take. We and Rep. John Lewis are some fed up: "I know racism when I see it. I know racism when I feel it. The world is watching."

The Power To Do Anything, Because In Patriarchy No One Can Hear You Scream
Chutzpah Inc: Lawyers for rich white guy and sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein are asking he be released on bail to his $77 million, fake-breast-filled New York mansion because, despite many obscene crimes, a dozen more accusers and several new charges, Epstein is a victim of "the toxic political climate" who has "a spotless 14-year record" and didn't do any truly bad sex trafficking, like enslaving. Rebecca Solnit on our culture of impunity: "Truth is whatever the powerful want it to be."

Mural Resistance: Judge Rules If Trump Can Spout Obscenities, So Can Artists
Marking the unholy first time "an American president's public pronouncements have been deemed too scabrous for repetition," a judge has ruled New Orleans officials violated an artist's freedom of speech when they tried to censor a mural quoting Trump's infamous "Access Hollywood" pussy profanities. Citing the foul-mouthed fuehrer, ACLU lawyers successfully argued city officials couldn't use labyrinthian rules to determine what is and isn't art that reflects tawdry life.

A Place Where Ideals Go To Die: Defeat Mitch, Please
Badass Amy McGrath - staunchly progressive Democrat who lost her mid-term Congressional race by a whisker, former Marine fighter pilot and first woman pilot in combat with a Masters from Johns Hopkins, mother of three married to a Republican - is running to unseat Mitch "Vader" McConnell, and she is not fooling around. " Everything that’s wrong with Washington had to start somewhere," she says in her first fiery ad. "It started with this man."

That Time Chants of USA! Were Quashed By Equal Pay! and Fuck Trump!
Almost as cool as the Americans winning the Women's World Cup - bravo to fearless, lesbian, purple-haired, knee-taking co-captain Megan Rapinoe - was the way reality kept intruding onto the triumphant field. First, the stadium erupted in fiery chants of "Equal Pay!" for women earning less than 10% of their male counterparts. Then Fox News went looking for a little celebratory jingoism in a French bar, only to be drowned out by U.S. patrons yelling,"Fuck Trump!" There may yet be hope.

We Move Under Cover to Terminal One: When the Revolutionary Army Triumphed Though They Ran Out of Hardtack and Covfefe
Behold the glory of our great revolutionary heroes, proclaimed General Bonespurs at his tank-bedecked sham of a July 4 spectacle. Dutifully reading his lines, he babbled and chittered about a bloody history wherein the army suffered through Valley Forge and "had nothing but victory (as) the star-spangled banner waved defiant.” On the arduous journey there, he intoned, “Our Army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over airports." Yes, Twitter had at it.

Douglass: Your Boasted Liberty, An Unholy License
Marking this surreal, mournful, furious Fourth - the "narcissistic travesty" unfolding in D.C., the kids sweltering in their ungodly cages - the hackers at 2600 Magazine have released a list of U.S. concentration camps in hopes of spurring action. To the American slave (and kid in cage), Frederick Douglass searingly said, "Your celebration is a sham... There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States, at this very hour."
