ARTQUIZ: pomo Art or work of Toddlers?

In 2005 ABCNews asked artists and an art historian to distinguish between modern art* and work by 4-year-olds. They didn’t do too well.

Give it a try!

* What's is usually refered to as modern art, is actually postmodern art.

Muslim Brotherhood's New Symbol For the Caliphate

The Muslim Brotherhood have a new symbol. Erdogan was the first to promote the R4BIA hand sign on August 17 when he saluted crowds with the four-finger sign

The hand gesture quickly evolved into an image of the hand commonly depicted in black on a bright yellow background. 

The design of the symbol has characteristics sacred in Islam: the color yellow in the background signifies the golden Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem and the hand depicted in the color black denotes the black cloth that covers the Kaaba.

A prosecutor in Athens has ordered an investigation into a blog post that appeared on a special forces reservists' website demanding the government and president resign and an interim government be appointed under the "guarantee" of the armed forces. In a statement posted on its website (screengrab archived), the Hellenic Special Forces Reserve Union (KEED) says it will assemble on Saturday September 28 at 4pm at Syntagma Square in order to demand “the immediate resignation of the government” because it has failed in its duty to provide “health, education, justice and security” that it says it is obliged to do under article 22 of the Constitution.

Restoring the American Republic (includes free download)

Bestselling author Mark Levin returns with The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic from elements within the government that are acting contrary to the Constitution

Mark Levin on Sean Hannity's gives a rescue plan for restoring the Constitutional Republic.

Constitutional expert Mark Levin explains certain provisions within the Constitution that allows states of the Union to amend the constitution to reign in a tyrannical government. He has made the case in numerous New York Times Bestselling books—MEN IN BLACK, LIBERTY AND TYRANNY, AND AMERITOPIA—that the principles undergirding American society and the governmental system are unraveling. In THE LIBERTY AMENDMENTS, he turns to the Founding Fathers and the Constitution itself for guidance in restoring the American Republic.

Obama's 'Red Line' on Syria is a Red Herring

Yaron Brook is sorting out the issues regarding Syria while the world's media are chasing a hoax casus belli, false flag incidents, and Western alignment with the scum of the earth

Yaron Brook, director of the Ayn Rand Institute discusses Western involvement in Syria.

While the world is chasing a red herring - the use of chemical weapons, either by the Assad regime or by the terrorist rebels in an effort to actively draw in the US on their side of the war - it is becoming more obvious by the day that the West is already embroiled up to its eyeballs for some time, and has in fact been running arms shipments from Zagreb, Croatia despite the embargo. The infamous Benghazi scandal involved a shipment of Stingers from the war in Libya.

John Kerry's New Belief in 'Moralism' in Foreign Policy

Present John Kerry might want to take a leaf from the 1970s postmodern Kerry, who denounced the Vietnam War and 'moralism' in foreign policy

John Kerry in Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. "The Place of the Mutual Defense Treaty.

State Department Secretary John Kerry has provided a vehement and passionate counterpart to Obama’s half-hearted and distracted advocacy for a punitive shot across the bow in Syria. The present moralistic Kerry might want to take some tips from 1970s amoralistic Kerry, who denounced the Vietnam War, and in this video, goes so far as to say 'moralism' has guided foreign policy since the founding, but should do so no longer.

Obama's Statement on Syria Throws the West in Disarray

Since Obama's statement yesterday about military action in Syria, the Western world has descended into chaos. Obama is waiting Congressional approval after September 9

Consensus isn't truth and it certainly doesn't bring a solution any closer. 

Obama yesterday hasn't laid down a vision, nor has he made things any clearer. Channeling every thinkable, uninformed opinion doesn't bring the conflict any closer to a resolution either. The world is in chaos. The war for the moment is focusing on Syria. But this conflict can't be viewed from under a telescope. It must be watched from a great distance for the ligaments and the cross currents to become apparent.
