    These are called fore edge paintings. Some books will have more than one, with a different image when splayed the opposite way, or one that shows when the book is closed

    Books are such important items, keeping them safe and the concept of libraries alive is something we should think harder about. Kindle is great but books are beautiful items that in there design make you feel like a treasure is within.

    What a funny thing it is to put so much work into a little painting that few will ever see.

    I think either this book or books similarly like it (with the golden hidden painting) are at the special/rare books section of Powell’s Books in Portland, OR. Only accessible by events I believe.

    I think I figured what the text was is on the back cover. Doesn’t seem to have a connection to the hidden painting.

    > The picture inserted is a copy of one in an album given me in 1947, by Mrs. Edmonia Hill in Baltimore. The view is almost the same as in Miss Currie’s painting.

    > Mrs. Hill’s late husband was S. A. Hill of Allahabad, India, the Professor of Kipling’s “From Sea to Sea”. He had taken this picture in 1886 and it is included in my album of contemporary pictures taken by Professor Hill. Nearly all the album’s 57 pictures have inscriptions in Kipling’s hand writing, probably written while he lived with the Hills in Allahabad in 1888. The inscription under this picture in the album reads

    > The Burning – Ghat Benares

    > “For all the tears of all the eyes

    > Have room in Gunga’s bed,

    > And all the sorrow is gone to-morrow

    > When the red flames have fed”

    > E. Arnold

    Had to find an [alternate source](https://ebooks.adelaide.edu.au/k/kipling/rudyard/smith/chapter15.html) for the poem at the end since a clear shot wasn’t in the video.

    From last time it was posted here.

    A 1925 copy of Rudyard Kipling’s “Kim” from Cornell University Library’s Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections, with a hidden painting on its edges – a technique known as fore-edge painting. The book is one of a series by an artist known as Miss C.B. Currie.

Hypocritical ‘Values Voters’ Don’t Care If Trump Groped Women (TWEET)

Hypocritical ‘Values Voters’ Don’t Care If Trump Groped Women (TWEET)

 

One of the most disheartening moments of the 2016 campaign came when the infamous “Access Hollywood” tapes came out, and the religious right still continued to bow down to Donald Trump. On paper, the Trump campaign should have been finished once we learned Trump had been caught on tape declaring that he could treat women any way he wanted–even “grab ’em by the p***y”–because he was a celebrity.

But believe it or not, the nation’s so-called moral guardians tried to tell us that really didn’t matter as much as ending abortion, marriage equality, the Iran deal, and other items on the religious right bucket list. They also tried to tell us that they were more concerned about this nation having a future than the prospect of having a president who reveled in degrading women. That, and that alone, is why Trump was able to stay alive.

That mentality extended to the rank and file as well. I know from experience. My view of those tapes was simple. I would not even consider allowing Trump into my house using that kind of degrading language–so why would I vote to put him in the people’s house? But a number of my more conservative friends asked me the same question they’d asked me since the campaign began–how could I, a charismatic/Pentecostal Christian, even think about voting for a baby killer?

That mentality seemed to be very much on display at the 2017 Values Voters Summit. ThinkProgress’ Kira Lerner spoke to a number of attendees about Trump’s past debauchery. Their response was more or less the same–it wasn’t a big deal for them.

Denise Hopkins of Mandeville, Louisiana had hoped that “a conservative constitutionalist” would get the Republican nomination. However, she was now convinced that Trump was “an answer to our prayers.” Noting that Trump had once been a Democrat, Hopkins said that Trump’s turn to the right proved that “we’re all a work in progress.” She believed that Trump “doesn’t say things in the most artful form,” but believed that she had good instincts. Uh huh. So bragging about moving on women and kissing them without their consent is merely not artful?

Susan Blake of South Florida was impressed that Trump seemed to have “really evolved” with the help of the “good, Christian people” in his circle, like Vice President Mike Pence. This seems to echo a common sentiment among fundies–Trump’s debauched and degrading comments didn’t matter because they came before he supposedly got saved sometime during the campaign.

Really, Susan? Would you be convinced that Trump has “evolved” if you knew that he retweeted this?

Trump retweeted this outrageous GIF depicting him knocking Hillary Clinton down with a tee shot on the morning of September 17. It’s still on his Twitter feed as I write this on Sunday night.

On paper, this should have put to rest any notion that Trump was any kind of Christian. It’s hard to imagine how anyone with Jesus in his heart would have even thought about hitting the retweet button. Moreover, it should have left no doubt that the same man who declared he could “grab ’em by the p***y” is now in the White House.

Most left-leaning Christians–including yours truly–have known for some time that Trump’s efforts to curry favor with fundies are just another Trumpian swindle. But the fact this outrageous tweet is still on his feed should eliminate any doubt that Trump is taking the religious right for a ride. If the people who attended the Values Voters Summit, as well as other fundie Trump diehards, stopped bowing down to Trump long enough, they’d see it as well.

This Newly-Resurfaced Video Of Trump Making A Move On A Young Girl Will Disgust You

This Newly-Resurfaced Video Of Trump Making A Move On A Young Girl Will Disgust You

 

Donald Trump may hold the title of Commander-in-Chief, but it would be much more appropriate to call him the Pervert-in-Chief. From bragging that he likes to grab beautiful women by the genitals to the sickening remarks he’s made about his own daughter, Ivanka, Trump never fails to raise the stakes when it comes to being a dirty old man.

The latest proof of Trump’s lechery arrives in the form of a video which has recently resurfaced after a decade.

In 2007, Trump gave a speech to the San Francisco Learning Annex for which he was reportedly paid a cool $1.5 million. And in the speech, Trump reverted to his typically disgusting self and began telling the story of a young teenage girl–a beautiful girl, 17 or 18, so beautiful”– he hired to be a waitress at one of his restaurants despite the fact that she had zero experience.

In the video below, Trump invites the young girl, named Juliet, to join him onstage, and then remarks:

“My people said, ‘Mr. Trump, she has no experience,’ so I interviewed her anyway because she was so beautiful.

“I said, ‘Do you have any experience?’ She goes, ‘No, sir.’ I said, ‘When can you start?’”

Then Trump smiles like the proverbial Cheshire cat and says:

“Isn’t that terrible? You can work on my plane anytime.”

As Juliet leaves the stage, Trump comments:

“Now if she worked on my plane that’s like a death wish for me.”

The video, which was first discovered by The New York Daily News in 2016, is now even more relevant, as a former contestant on The Apprentice, Summer Zervos, has subpoenaed all records from the Trump campaign involving accusations of sexual harassment and assault complaints made by numerous women. Zervos alleges that in 2007 Trump kissed and groped her when she asked for a job at the Trump Organization.

So while the news is filled with allegations of sexual assault by movie executive Harvey Weinstein, let’s not forget that a sexual predator named Donald J. Trump has also abused women for decades and even managed to get elected to the highest office in the land. When will justice be meted out for his actions?

Here’s The Money Laundering Trail That Leads Directly To Donald Trump

Here’s The Money Laundering Trail That Leads Directly To Donald Trump

 

Paul Manafort, who served as Donald Trump’s campaign chairman during part of the 2016 election, appears to have been actively involved in possible money laundering for a Russian oligarch with deep ties to Russian president Vladimir Putin.

An extensive investigation by NBC News reveals that Manafort accepted some $60 million in “loans” from Russian businessman Oleg Deripaska. NBC also reports:

According to company documents obtained by NBC News in Cyprus, funds were sent from a company owned by Deripaska to entities linked to Manafort, registered in Cyprus.

Trump, like Manafort, has a history of doing business with shady Russian figures: In 2008, Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev purchased Maison de L’Amitie, a massive beachfront estate in Palm Beach, Florida, from Trump for $95 million. Trump paid $40 million for the property four years earlier, and some questioned why the Russian would have paid such an inflated price for the estate. Rybolovlev and Deripaska also have shared business interests across the globe.

How does Manafort explain the $60 billion he took from Deripaska? His spokesperson, Jason Maloni, commented:

“Mr. Manafort is not indebted to former clients today, nor was he at the time he began working for the Trump campaign.

“Recent news reports indicate Mr. Manafort was under surveillance before he joined the campaign and after he left the campaign. He has called for the U.S. Government to release any intercepts involving him and non-Americans in hopes of finally putting an end to these wild conspiracy theories. Mr. Manafort did not collude with the Russian government.”

The specifics of the loans to Manafort from Deripaska certainly appear suspicious. NBC found:

 $26 million was transferred from Oguster Management Ltd. — which is wholly owned by Deripaska, according to a disclosure filed at the Hong Kong Stock Exchange — to Yiakora Ventures Ltd. Yiakora, according to Cyprus financial documents, is a ‘related party’ to Manafort’s many interests on the island, a financial term meaning that Manafort’s interests have significant influence over Yiakora.

“The investigation also confirms a smaller loan of just $7 million from Oguster to another Manafort-linked company, LOAV Advisers Ltd., a figure first reported by The New York Times. Company documents reviewed by NBC News reveal the entire amount was unsecured, not backed by any collateral.”

Could the so-called “loans” have been something illegal? Stefan Cassella, a former federal prosecutor, commented:

“You can call it a loan, you can call it Mary Jane. If there’s no intent to repay it, then it’s not really a loan. It’s just a payment.”
