Not breaking news: White supremacist Steve King can't stop himself from being a racist pig

By all accounts, the flooding that has inundated Iowa—along with much of the Midwest—has been devastating. So naturally, when Rep. Steve King traveled to Iowa this week, he offered words of comfort and promises of assistance. Nah. After all, this is noted white supremacist and hatemonger Steve King. Instead, he opted to insult the New Orleans victims of Hurricane Katrina, claiming that some unnamed FEMA official—perhaps created in King’s fevered brain after an evening of perusing Stormfront—told King, “We go to a place like New Orleans and everybody’s looking around saying, who’s gonna help me, who’s gonna help me?” And then, of course, this anonymous—imaginary?—FEMA official allegedly went on to praise Iowans because they help themselves “rather than waiting for outside assistance.” Because of course those overwhelmingly white Iowans are busy “helping each other” and pulling themselves up by those old bootstraps, unlike, say, those predominantly black New Orleanians, who are just sitting around waiting for a handout. Subtle, Steve. Jackass.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos keeps trying to hurt students, and the courts keep blocking her

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is spending an awful lot of time in court—or anyway, her policies are—and she keeps losing. DeVos’ efforts to roll back basically everything the Obama administration did for students have been blocked, one by one, by federal judges. DeVos tried to block Obama-era policies protecting people defrauded by predatory online colleges, but was stymied by the courts. The Education Department has forgiven $150 million in student debt as a result, and told the colleges to stop using mandatory arbitration to deny students their day in court. Most recently, Politico reports, “a federal judge ruled DeVos illegally postponed a regulation requiring states to identify school districts where there are significant racial disparities among the students placed in special education programs.” The judge in another case being argued now, focused on consumer disclosures by online colleges, hasn’t decided the merits of the case yet but did swat the Education Department by noting that it “takes chutzpah” to simultaneously say it’s too burdensome for online colleges to have to disclose information but not too burdensome for students to have to search out undisclosed information. One court victory DeVos did win was in her effort to protect campus rapists at the expense of survivors.

House Democrats may soon get Trump's personal tax returns. But what about his business ones?

House Democrats are preparing to challenge Donald Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns—something every other president and presidential nominee has done for decades—but Trump’s personal returns won’t tell the whole story, and some Democrats want to push further. What about his business tax returns? According to the financial disclosures Trump has been required to file, he has more than 500 different businesses and partnerships, each with its own tax return. His personal taxes would tell how much money he was getting from those, but would not necessarily identify his business partners—a question of particular interest in considering Trump’s Russia ties—or reveal shady tax avoidance tactics on the part of his businesses.  “If you start with the personal returns, what you’ll run into pretty quickly is a lot of references to investments that don’t tell you very much about what it is,” former IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told Politico. “It’s going to drive you to the business return.” House Ways and Means Committee Chair Richard Neal has so far proceeded cautiously and deliberately on the matter of Trump’s personal taxes, so it’s extremely unlikely he’ll dive into a demand for the tax information of hundreds of businesses. But if and when Neal gets those personal tax returns, it sure is interesting to think about how Trump’s business taxes could make for some very interesting follow-up.

Pompeo says Trump may have been chosen by God to save the Jewish people—from the problem he created

Mike Pompeo says Donald Trump May be The Chosen One — the man selected by God to save the Jewish people. From a problem that Trump is turning into a crisis. In an interview with the Christian Broadcast Network, the secretary of state was asked if Trump “is a new Esther.” In the Bible, Esther is a Jewish queen to a Persian king usually identified as the historical figure Xerxes I. She discovers and thwarts a plot to kill the Jews under Xerxes’ control. Pompeo did not shy away from the connection. “As a Christian I certainly believe that's possible," he replied. He went on to say, “I am confident that the Lord is at work here” in selecting Trump as the person to protect the Jewish people from the modern incarnation of Persia, Iran. All of which plays oddly against a report from the Wall Street Journal that Iran, which reached a historic multinational agreement to suspend development of nuclear weapons under President Obama, has resumed work on those weapons now that Trump has destroyed that agreement. The WSJ report indicates that Iran, which had previously been working with inspectors and was found to be in compliance with the agreement, is now buying both technologies and fissionable material through front companies connected to Russia and China. So Trump is saving the Jewish people from Iran … by positioning Iran to construct nuclear weapons.  On Thursday, Trump recognized the Golan Heights as part of Israel. That drastic change in U.S. policy may provide a boost to the flagging electoral chances of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but also risks disrupting relationships across the Middle East. In the same week, it was learned that Jared Kushner has been holding WhatsApp conversations with multiple figures in the region, including Netanyahu and Saudi prince Mohammad bin Salman. Purim, which was celebrated this week, is held on the day traditionally connected to Esther’s actions. Pompeo did not mention if Trump, like Esther, was selected for this role because of his “great beauty.”

Georgia misses deadline to provide House Democrats with voter suppression documents

Georgia has missed its deadline to provide documents for a House Oversight Committee investigation into voter suppression. Local news channel 11Alive reports that neither the Georgia governor’s nor secretary of state’s office is commenting on the missed deadline after Brian Kemp, who used his previous office as secretary of state to help ensure his election as governor, dismissed the investigation as “playing politics.” The House Oversight Committee’s document request included information on the tens of thousands of voter registration applications placed on hold by the secretary of state’s office; the fact that in “counties with significant minority populations, voters waited for hours to cast their ballots, even though hundreds of available voting machines sat unused in government warehouses”; and voter roll purges. «We have not yet received the documents we requested on alleged voter suppression in Georgia,» according to a statement from the House Oversight Committee to 11Alive. «However, representatives of Georgia’s Governor, the Governor’s Office, and the Secretary of State’s Office have committed to fully cooperating with our inquiry in a timely way, and we expect them to abide by that commitment.» They’d better … but we’ll see.

Lindsey Graham's soaring poll numbers show exactly why he's sidled up to Trump at any cost

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham recently told the New York Times, “If you don’t want to get re-elected, you’re in the wrong business.” Graham may as well have followed up with, And I'm in the right business. Sure as shootin', Graham has spent the past of couple years morphing into a candidate for the utmost spineless Trump booster of all time. Since 2016, Graham has gone from labeling Trump a «kook» who was «unfit for office» to being his consummate apologist and golf buddy. Even as Trump spent the past week savaging Graham's former Senate bestie John McCain, Graham still couldn't eke out an actual criticism of Trump when he was asked about it by a local TV station. «My job is to represent the people of South Carolina,» he told Spartanburg's WLOS. «They want me to work with the President where I can. I've gotten to know the President. We have a good working relationship. I like him. I don't like it when he says things about my friend John McCain.» If you've been wondering even a little bit about Graham's motivation, wonder no longer. As MSNBC's Steve Benen points out, Winthrop's latest statewide poll provides the answer. Regarding U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, his approval rating among Republicans has continued to rise, it now stands at 74% in the Winthrop Poll. Only 25% of Democrats polled support Graham. «While Graham’s numbers used to lag those of other Republicans among GOP identifiers, since he has taken up the President’s banner on most every issue, his approval among Republicans in South Carolina has steadily risen,» Winthrop Poll director Dr. Scott Huffmon told a local ABC affiliate. Nearly a year ago, Graham was sitting at a 51 percent approval rating among South Carolina Republicans in the same poll. He's spent the last year-plus inoculating himself from a primary challenge, integrity be damned, and it worked. It must feel good.

Exploring Maastricht During TEFAF

Erik de Jong, chief executive of the Museum aan het Vrijthof, has been gearing up for a busy time as The European Fine Arts Festival (TEFAF) in Maastricht opens and runs through March 24. The fair is one of the most important in Europe and its gravitational pull draws thousands of extra visitors to the museums around the city. Galleries and museums always try to have something special happening during this period of high visibility., drawing many visitors to museums around the city.De Jong spoke with Blouin Artinfo about how to make the most of Maastricht as a whole, as well as providing insights into the city’s art scene, and of course his museum. The interview has been trimmed for length and edited for clarity.How long have you worked in the art scene?In Maastricht, I‘ve been director of this museum about 5 years now — this is my third museum. Before I worked in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Den Bosch. Afterward, I worked in a castle in the region, but before that I wasn’t interested in culture and the arts at all. Eventually a friend of mine suggested I bring some of my entrepreneurial skills to the art world.How are you going to be involved in TEFAF?TEFAF has been one of our major sponsors for five years now, so we’re going to come up with a good exhibition, which is TEFAF-minded and high quality. Now we have a show about a couturier with jewelry. During the night, when the museums are closed, a lot of galleries also put up social events... dinners, drinks, or whatever. For me personally, I see a lot of museum colleagues during that 10 days from all over the country or from Belgium, for instance. It’s good for networking.What should we expect from TEFAF?When TEFAF arrives at Maastricht, all the museums, theatres, and galleries are putting their best efforts in. The city is filled with flags and banners, and hotels and restaurants are well-filled — the whole city is filled with a kind of TEFAF buzz. People are dressed nicely, and there are all sorts of dinner activities. Yes, art is all over, pop-up exhibitions are all over, but there’s a kind of buzz during those 10 or 14 days. The whole city changes and everyone is reacting to it, which is nice.Are there any artists you’re particularly looking forward to seeing at TEFAF?Our exhibition of course! It’s about a couturier and jeweler which who is well known in Japan. There’s a Musee Bonnefantenmuseum exhibition about David Lynch. And if you want to be surprised, just walk through the city and see all the pop-up expos, that’s the most exciting part of it all.How long have you been living in Maastricht?I know Maastricht very well, I’ve been living 15 kilometers from the city since before I started in the arts. The city pretty much has no secrets from me. If you walk from the north to the south center of the town it’s about 15 minutes walk — it’s not that big, everybody knows each other.How has the art scene evolved in that time?It’s too short to talk about change, but there are a lot of new people working in the city now. A lot of the people who were working here for a long time are all gone now, so what you see is a lot of collaboration among the new people. There’s a desire to innovate the arts scene more and more. A lot of the galleries here are very old school. There’s a change from the traditional gallery to the online gallery, visiting fairs. That energy is still just starting now, but you can sense it.Do you have any favorite artists from the area?Last year we did an exhibition with Ted Noten, and international designer and kind of a guerrilla artist, we also did an exhibition about Les Deux Garcons, two artists in Maastricht working with taxidermy. Those three are all well- known outside of Maastricht who have kept a good track record.How would you describe the character of the city? What moods does it evoke?It’s like Paris in small— a very ancient town, with an old center, traditional, nicely built; I think one of the two oldest cities in the Netherlands. We take care of the environment very well — it’s neat, with an upcoming group of international students who are bringing life to the city over the last 15 years. Now you see far more coffee shops, small restaurants, and workspaces for students, which influences the whole ambience of the city. I compared it a few weeks ago with Lille. Small center, and old, but with lots of energy from youngsters. I think that describes Maastricht.What would be on your agenda if you had a free day in the city?A tour of a few things, I’d take them to a few bars, shops, and a walk through the center. At the end of the city you’ve got Casino Sloventa. There’s “Little Paris,” or Wyck, everyone’s fun in that part, a lot of cafes, bars, trendy restaurants, cocktail bars and it’s not that expensive. It’s got everything everyone wants to see there. One of the greatest bookstores in the world, which is the Dominican Church, a former church rebuilt into a giant bookstore with all kinds of concerts, book presentations, authors and writers coming to do signings, that is definitely a hotspot, absolutely.Best local food?There are a lot of hotspots here. Sphinx Kwartier is new and upcoming, with more of an industrial look. The other side of the city which is upcoming with some new art houses, and a cinema, it’s more rough area now.Best spots for nightlife?If you’re into techno or dance you’ve got Complex, which is a large club, one of the upcoming things is Lumiere, an alternative cinema. You’ve got the former fire station where there is a new restaurant in the renovated garage.What’s a must-try authentic local item only available in Maastricht?The Vlaai. It’s a kind of cake, typical Maastricht. There’s also very good Maastricht white wine, Apostelhoeve. In Wyck there are snack bars which make original fresh French fries, completely opposite in taste to McDonald’s, definitely worth checking out.https://www.blouinartinfo.com/              Founder: Louise Blouin

Light and Air Architecture Retrofits Brooklyn Apartment using Baltic birch Storage Cabinets

The New York-based studio Light and Air Architecture has retrofitted a two-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn with ample custom cabinetry and a spiral staircase. The two-story home is located inside a former schoolhouse building in Brooklyn’s Prospect Heights neighborhood. Built in 1895 along Sterling Place, the original structure was constructed with brick, sandstone, and terracotta in the Romanesque revival style. Inside, much of the building has been overhauled over the years to accommodate modern residences, including the renovated apartment by Light and Air Architecture (L/AND/A). As per details provided by the architecture studio, measuring 1,200 square feet (111 square meters), the Sterling Place project was overhauled to feature an open-plan layout for its main living space, which occupies the upper level. The studio removed existing partitions, particularly a wall that divided the main floor into three separate rooms. Now, the home is arranged around a volumetric formwork built from Baltic birch. Talking about the new interior, the studio says, “Unlike the orthogonal constraints characterizing typical means of enclosure, this new and dynamic armature is flexible, continuous, and has the ability to change scale. Here, transparency is not so much the focus as is the framing of views as one moves from space to space. As a result, new connections between previously isolated rooms are formed, developing a visually rich experience that adds layers of complexity to space.” The structure divides different areas – particularly a kitchen, a bathroom, and a living room – and provides ample storage. As per the details provided by the studio, the custom built-in unit spans from the main entrance and encloses a central nook, and concludes with cabinetry in the kitchen. A slatted wood wall or “screen-shelf” conceals a corridor where the bathroom is located, as well as a new spiral staircase. On the lower level are the two bedrooms and an additional shower room. In addition to dividing the main floor, the wooden frame also accommodates a coat closet and various shelving systems. In the kitchen, the birch volume extends all the way up to the high ceilings, yet near the bathroom, the frame is brought down to lower the ceiling height. As described by the studio, “more than just a highly articulated spatial organizer, the armature functions as storage for the occupant. This function is what gives the armature its depth as well as its character.” Aside from the birch volume and wooden floors, the studio has kept the rest of the home monochrome to draw attention to the natural materiality. A black quartz countertop and a dark floor are used in the kitchen, along with a matching large dining table and a contemporary light fixture overhead. All of the walls are kept white, including an exposed brick surface in the living room and white-tiled bathrooms. Founded in 2017, L/AND/A is a New York-based architecture and design studio led by American architect and artist Shane Neufeld.  https://www.blouinartinfo.com/              Founder: Louise Blouin

Aguilo + Pedraza Arquitectos Designs Stilted Apus House in Chile

The Santiago-based studio Aguilo + Pedraza Arquitectos has elevated a glass, concrete, and wooden house above its Chilean landscape setting to offer views of oak trees, a lake, and five volcanoes. The studio designed the family house to top a stepped plot in Los Lagos – a mountainous region in southern Chile. Rather than excavate into the site, the studio chose to raise the residence above the slope to offer elevated views of its surroundings. As described in the project note, “In this context, the structure is located on the second of these terraces, a location that delineates three major views: a nearby forest of new oak trees, the lake in the distance, and a backdrop of five volcanoes emerging from the Andes Mountains.” As stated by the architecture studio, “The construction was thought of as a pavilion, that is, spaces that can be used in different ways, hosting different uses.” Called “Apus House,” the structure is lifted on concrete stilts and comprises a series of glazed volumes slotted between exposed concrete walls – portions of which are covered with wooden logs, as a reference to the forested surroundings. The studio said that walls and slabs were built with exposed concrete, a material with appropriate structural rigidity to enable the volumes to be suspended using merely a few pillars, “thus creating an attractive visual game.” The house has four volumes connected by a glazed, stilted passageway measuring 80 meters long. Each block contains a different function – including the bedrooms, main living areas, the master suite, and service areas – to provide the residents with adequate privacy. A huge roof is raised above the main volume by a clerestory window. It overhangs at the edges to protect the building from the area’s heavy rainfall. As described by the project note, a two-story central block acts as the hub for the home, featuring the kitchen, living room, and the dining room on the upper level. An angled staircase leads down to the games room and guest bedroom on the lower level. Wooden ceiling beams are left exposed and complemented by wood flooring, leather, and wooden furniture. Large amounts of glazing frame the forest and the lake beyond. The elevated glass walkway leads from here to a block containing two bedrooms, offering additional vistas along the way. Anchoring one end of the property is the master suite with another bedroom located underneath. Each of these also features a lounge area downstairs, allowing its occupants to relax in privacy.  https://www.blouinartinfo.com/              Founder: Louise Blouin
