  This morning, for the first time in a hundred years, after fifteen successive ballots ... and four days ... newly-elected Members of the US House of Representatives finally agreed upon their "Speaker" for the 118th Congress: January 7, 2023.

  During his pre-dawn address to the new Congress, Speaker Kevin McCarthy invoked a powerful Revolutionary War image:

German-born artist Emanuel Leutz's historic "Washington Crossing the Deleware."

McCarthy compared the diverse figures depicted in the boat around Washington to the diversity of peoples, beliefs and backgrounds in America ... and the promise of this diversity to the future, if they ... we ... all can "row together."

  McCarthy's evocative description elicited a standing ovation ... from "both sides of the aisle."

  The mythic power ... across 172 years ... of "a Painting" ....

Tonight, once again, we're going to discuss the power of NASA astronaut/artist Alan Bean's paintings from Project Apollo; and how, The Enterprise Mission plans to auction off one of Bean's most evocative paintings, "Reaching for the Stars" -- personally signed by 24 Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and Space Shuttle astronauts -- as the Beginning of "The Enterprise Mission's 2023 ET Campaign" to introduce the world to the shocking scientific foundations behind Bean's "Real Moon."
