SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco will spend up to $600,000 to paint over historical artwork at a public school depicting the life of George Washington, a mural once seen as educational and innovative but now criticized as racist and degrading for its depiction of black and Native American people.

The “Life of Washington” was painted by Victor Arnautoff, one of the foremost muralists in the San Francisco area during the Depression. The San Francisco School Board’s decision to paint over the 83-year-old mural is prompting some to worry that other artwork from the so-called New Deal era could face a similar fate because of changing sensitivities.

In addition to depicting Washington as a soldier, surveyor and statesman, the 13-panel, 1,600-sqaure foot mural at George Washington High School contains images of white pioneers standing over the body of a Native American and slaves working at Washington’s Mount Vernon estate in Virginia.

After spending decades in a private collection, a resurfaced letter written by America’s first president praises God for the ratification of the United States Constitution.

It is over 230 years old, dating back to 1788.

The price tag?

A cool $140,000.

From Fox News:

The letter to Richard Peters, speaker of the Pennsylvania House, is signed Sept. 7, 1788, and praises God for the ratification of the U.S. Constitution.

Written a week after Washington told Alexander Hamilton that he would likely accept calls to assume the presidency, the letter came at a time when the Constitution was under attack. Some states wanted to hold a second Convention that may have undermined the Constitution.

Zoom in to read:

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) is the mayor of gaffe city.

Noting that the age to run for president is 35 and Alexandria is only 29, a photographer said: “You can’t even run for president for another six years.

Ocasio-Cortez: “No, not for a long time. Thank God. Although we’ve been joking that because the Equal Rights Amendment hasn’t been passed yet, the Constitution technically says he cannot run unless he’s 35. … So what we’ll do is we’ll force the Republican Party to pass the Equal Rights Amendment by threatening to run for president.

Uh, Alexandria? The constitution does not say “he.”

As Playbook notes, the Constitution does not say “he” cannot run — it says “any person.”

According to Article II Section I of the Constitution:

No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.

The mayor of gaffe city, the governor D’oh!-ville strikes again – with a vengeance!

Save conservative media!

Democrat Governor Frees 8,000 Inmates Over COVID-19, But Bans Singing In Churches

Priorities?

Once again, the Golden State continues to lead the nation in crazy. Thanks to radically far-left Governor Gavin Newsom, 8,000 prisoners will be freed due to spikes in coronavirus – which most likely stem from increased testing and Black Lives Matter riots, where police officers are treated like animals. Newsom has no problem banning singing in church, though. From KPIX 5: The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) on Friday said it estimates 8,000 currently incarcerated persons could be eligible for release by end of August under release authority granted to the CDCR Secretary allowing alternative confinement or release in any case in which an emergency endangering the lives of incarcerated persons has occurred or is imminent. The 8,000 inmates to be released are in addition to the state’s reduction of about 10,000 inmates since the start of the pandemic. Jay Jordan, the executive director of Californians for Safety and Justice, noted: “We’re glad the Governor is taking action to release more people. This is absolutely critical for the health and safety of every Californian. Too many people are incarcerated for too long in facilities that spread poor health. Supporting the health and safety of all Californians means releasing people unnecessarily incarcerated and transforming our justice system.” Regarding church, via Fox News: Faith leaders are speaking out after California Gov. Gavin Newsom banned singing and chanting in houses of worship last week due to a surge in coronavirus cases following weeks of protests. “Places of worship must, therefore, discontinue singing and chanting activities and limit indoor attendance to 25 percent of building capacity or a maximum of 100 attendees, whichever is lower,” the new guidelines read as state health officials recommend churches have members sing online from their homes.

Roger Stone Will Not Serve Prison Time, Has Sentence Commuted By POTUS Trump

Freedom!

Liberals are going to have a field day with this one. Then again, they generally go bananas for anything and everything “Trump,” so this will just be more gas on the fire. As of late Friday evening, longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone learned that he won’t be serving time in the big house. From Fox News: Tucker Carlson lauded President Trump’s commutation of longtime Republican political consultant Roger Stone’s prison sentence Friday, saying the 67-year-old had been the victim of a “nakedly political” set-up aimed to put him away for the rest of his “useful and expected life.” Stone was to report to prison Tuesday on charges of witness tampering and making false statements in connection to the Mueller investigation of alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. Carlson said, “His arrest and his trial were nakedly political. It was a set-up. The presiding judge, a political activist called Amy Berman Jackson, issued a gag order that prohibited Stone from defending himself in public or making a living. She bankrupted him as a result.” Here’s the letter from the White House: California Congressman Eric Swalwell’s (D) 2020 presidential campaign lasted a solid five minutes. Even he probably knew he didn’t stand a chance. But that hasn’t stopped the radically far-left liberal from saying some very, very silly things. Swalwell knows the lines he’s supposed to parrot and does it well – or, at least, well enough. He’s just not the most likable of characters. In February, the Democrat suggested a new plan his peers might hatch in order to take down the duly-elected president of the United States.
