The CIA has had a hand in abstract art since the Cold War.
The institution admitted to it over 8 years ago, as the Independent reported:
“Unknown to the artists, the new American art was secretly promoted under a policy known as the “long leash”…..The decision to include culture and art in the US Cold War arsenal was taken as soon as the CIA was founded in 1947…. the new agency set up a division, the Propaganda Assets Inventory, which at its peak could influence more than 800 newspapers, magazines and public information organisations.
They joked that it was like a Wurlitzer jukebox: when the CIA pushed a button it could hear whatever tune it wanted playing across the world.
The next key step came in 1950, when the International Organisations Division (IOD) was set up under Tom Braden. It was this office which subsidised the animated version of George Orwell’s Animal Farm, which sponsored American jazz artists, opera recitals, the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s international touring programme. Its agents were placed in the film industry, in publishing houses, even as travel writers for the celebrated Fodor guides. And, we now know, it promoted America’s anarchic avant-garde movement, Abstract Expressionism.”
Fast forward to the Hunter Biden conundrum. Under the soft scrutiny of the media, Hunter Biden has been allowed to walk away as the intermediary for his family’s pay to play scheme that violates the oval office and jeopardizes national security.
And now suddenly Hunter Biden is selling abstract paintings for $500,000 a piece to unknown nefarious donors and those donors will remain confidential. In comparison, an average Salvador Dali painting can cost a mere $50,000. Something smells rotten in Denmark. Of course, Hunter’s resume of zero experience continues to land him the big money from the big guy. As Hunter has zero experience as a painter.
Just how stupid does the Biden crime family think the American people are? But if they get away with this, they can absolutely get away with anything.
