Q post tipping hat to the assemblies!

PEOPLE have POWER.<---- This is the founding basis of freedom and the will of the people.
Don't forget how to PLAY.<---- This is duplicating history and resettling our original jurisdiction.

4 FT. X 5 FT. acrylic on Masonite
Created and painted by Therese Daniels

When I heard Pat Smith, mother of Sean Smith—one of the four Benghazi victims speak to the world at the Republican convention last summer, I deeply felt her profound sorrow over the loss of her son. I also felt her frustration over being lied to by Hillary Clinton that the cause of her son’s death was a video about Islam. I wanted to give poetic and artistic dignity to the families’ grief.  I knew I had to paint the painting to memorialize for all the Benghazi victim’s families and the world the story of Benghazi.  It is very important to me to share the pain, senselessness and reasons why this happened—political incompetency.  The world must understand and never forget.  In some small way I hoped to validate and honor the families who will agonize for eternity over their loss.  Maybe it will bring some closure to the rest of the world who has been so deeply devastated by Benghazi.

Pat Smith is the lady on the left with a hole in her chest and tears streaming down her face.  When she spoke at the convention I heard those tears in her voice.  The loss of her son tore out a piece of her that will never be replaced.  Yet, she shared her sorrow with such dignity.
The four men at the top of the painting are the four Benghazi victims from left to right: Tyrone Woods,  Ambassador Chris Stevens,  Sean Smith, Glen Doherty.  They are portrayed as who they were in life—strong, patriotic, loving,  outstanding men. My portraits of them is my way of honoring them. I would have loved to know each and every one of those men.

Hillary is portrayed with her arms spread wide and a smirk on her face as if she were saying “What difference does it make?”  There is blood on her hands dripping onto one of the coffins of the four victims is the eternal accusation of Hillary’s guilt.  Obama is behind her with a sly, sneaky look on his face. The middle of the painting shows the American Embassy building in Libya in flames with a man holding up a gun.  The flames run horizontally across the painting symbolizing the passion, the conflicts and political problems between the west and the Middle East.

The bottom of the picture are the four coffins that held of bodies of the victims in their journey home. Each coffin has a cross on it and a flag draped over it.   
The American flag—in smoke and flames completes the background of the painting.  There are many symbolisms in that.  America went up in flames in Libya.  It has diminished in respect though out the world.  America needs to wake up and stop believing the lies.

  1. Photo of War Criminals (minus Bilderbergers that own most banks) + Wikileaks email reveals OBAMA’S MASTER PLAN FOR LIBYA THAT PUT 171 TONS OF GOLD INTO CLINTON HANDS


    Would Samantha Powers please explain why she advocated for military intervention in Libya? She seems to have a hard time understanding the bigger picture.
