Goodbye, Hero Soldier Thomas Borge. You tried when others didn’t give a shit

Here was one soldier that was a real hero to me Tomas Borge Martinez, 81, co-founder of Nicaraguan Sandinistas because he wasn't one of those stupid trailer trash boys and girls who sign up mainly to get the GI benefits and to strut around proclaiming themselves to be some sort of hero when they aren't that at all. Instead, Tomas Borge was a true soldier hero of his country.   Against all odds, Tomas Borge has died in old age. Now that you've read the corporate and US government bullshit about Tomas Borge in the first link in this article, perhaps you might be interested in reading another point of view to that crap? Perhaps...? Reflections on the Death of the Sandinista Leader- The Personal Revenge of Tomas Borge. 33368

They hanged Pinocchio and let Gepetto walk… 12/30/2006

As is so often true in death penalty cases. From 1979 til 1991 he was propped up by mostly the Reagan Regime as a counter to the Iranian revolution. Who are also the chief "witnesses" against him in the matter of killing a few thousand Iraqi citizens. With their active involvement. Their active PAID involvement, because they a) don't work cheap and b) don't actually work. "They" being a cast of villains like Reagan, Bush the Elder, Ollie North, the Miami Cuban Cartel, Richard Secord, Donald Rumsfeld, Admiral Poindexter, traitors and murderers all. Selling stolen arms for stolen money and getting Americans killed in the process, like the Marines in Beirut. (Lt Col North, three words, Ollie... Semper... Fi... Bitch) They got several times as many people killed by their Other Puppets, like the Salvadoran death squads, the Contras, the Medellin Cartel, to bring more people into Capitalist Slavery in the name of "Freedom". And they're still sending their brainless minions to kill for their own profit. Any of y'all soldiers assigned to read our blog, dudes, get smart and desert. Split, boogie, depart, sortez... Get Out Of The Slaughter Machine. Your Military is owned by the same Rich Bitches who owned Saddam's

Rule of law & American Exceptionalism

The extrem(ist)e lack of the first puts any claim of the latter as the very essence of arrogant falsehood. We're told that America, and ONLY America, actually deserves to run the entire world because we're better than them. What's that sound? Damn, I just heard every Right Wing Jingoist my-country-right-or-wrong, Love-it-or-leave-it, we're-fighting-for-your-freedom-of-speech-so-you-better-shut-your-cake-hole-or-we'll-shut-it-for-you "patriotic" TeaTard Racist closing his mind. They just snapped their minds shut simultaneously. with a deafening roar. Consider the case of one Luis Posada Carriles For those of our readers unfamiliar with the Castellano (Spanish) naming scheme, Carriles was his mother's maiden name. His surname is Posada. A terrorist paid by the U.S. Regime over decades to murder, to overthrow Democracy wherever it reared its lovely head. His CIA "handler" was one Donald Gregg, an American Coward who paid public money, without public oversight and, like fellow Terrorist George Bush Gregg was recently honored in Colorado Springs. Seems the local "conservatives" can't get enough of Babykilling Freaks. (They're hosting Sarah Palin later this month) 23691

“Red Dawn” a classic? Gag me…

I was researching why (I already know, just looking for confirmation) this piece of cinematic sewage keeps replaying on certain channels.To drum up war business of course. But I came across a review on a Right Wing website that the "classic" Red Dawn and Extreme Prejudice and a couple of other Death-Porn flicks by the same production company only show on "conservative" Cable channels and no MSM channel would touch them. "Lefty Censorship". How about this scenario instead? They sucked when they first came out and they've been sucking ever since. Assassination and "Kill Immigrant" flicks belong in the same genre as the "Six Days in Fallujah" and "Call of Duty" porn games where the players or viewers get to masturbate to images of people being murdered. "Red Dawn" and "Extreme Prejudice" were made to bolster the Reagan/Bush Administrations' use of the Murdering Contra Mercenary Terrorists against the People of Nicaragua. Meanwhile REAL soldiers gave me this review of it, back then... 22159

Speaking of Nicaragua…

The Artist, formerly known as School of the Americas, THE largest and best funded State-sponsored Terrorist Training Camp in the world, whose alumni include some of Colorado Springs cops, (as I understand, some of the "Homeless Outhrach" officers) used some of the Trainee Terrorists to disperse and arrest and beat down peaceful protesters at their "school" last week. You know, give the cadets a little first hand experience at beating down civilians. Kind of like these guys. Real Freedom Fighters there. They fight freedom whenever it rears its lovely head. Then, far from being embarrassed at their outrageous lies about fighting for Freedom, they instead send one of their number to make retarded comments about anybody who, unlike him or his FELLOW SCUMSUCKING PIGS, keep the memory alive. What's the matter, PIGS, Can't handle it when people point out your lies and hypocrisy, you have to send a puke like Stephen Patch in to talk smack? Or have the ACLU put down like mad dogs for not joining in with the Pigloving Sucks who applaud the actions of the Fascist Storm Troopers. 20628

How come Pottery Barn rules don’t apply to Haiti?

When Tony posted nearly three years ago (!) about how shocking conditions in Haiti had become, it was a magnet for people saying the starving kids pictures (from Medicins sans frontiers, internationally respected medical aid agency, just not so much here in America) were recycled pictures from Ethiopia 3, 2 and one decade ago. Then when that was refuted, and before they raised that Stupid Response again, the people of Haiti were blamed for their own misfortunes. As though their LEADERS had actually been empowered by popular vote instead of installed, against the expressed will of the People, by and for the profit of American Corporate Hegemony. Alternating with French Hegemony until the AmeriCorp bought out the French. We broke it, we supposedly bought it, right? That's the one of the irRationale for staying in Iraq and Afghanistan. (rationale is both plural and single, I checked, you didn't, kiss off) Of course, it's not the American Corporations who are Paying the bills "we" ran up by breaking all the pottery, although they seem to be getting quite a lot of public funding to manipulate the Public Army and the Public intelligence community and the public "rebuilding" campaign, which mostly consists of taking

Gunny Bob, Malkin, Dr Laura, y’all hate speech traitors, come clean

How MUCH are you making, personally, apiece from the death of each soldier, airman, sailor and Marine killed in the Corporate For-profit Wars of Conquest? The ones your Corporate Masters pay you pathetic low-life professional Liars to promote for them? Not counting the Civilians killed, imprisoned, tortured at the orders of Your Masters, of course, because you Racist Bitches don't consider Iraqi and Afghan PEOPLE to be even human, especially not the Babies that you're most famous for having gotten killed. 19504

Catholic Global War On People who Don’t Comply With Corporate Rulers

Some of the issues were very publicly addressed by John Paul II. Not as publicly by Benedict but even Pope Joey Ratz doesn't give blessings of the church, and thus absolution to Catholic chaplains and other soldiers. Abortion. That's a big hot issue not only with Catholics but Protestants. In the run-up to the Bombing (in which the Air Force were "first to fight" just a side note) and eventual occupation and enslavement errr... "liberation and nation building" of Iraqis the news came out, even on American stations, that Iraqi doctors were being called on to deliver late-term babies by Caesarean Section or induced labor, to prevent "miscarriages" also known by the medical term Spontaneous Abortion, caused not spontaneously but by the stress of such Liberating "Shock and Awe" events as aerial bombardment. That takes the term "spontaneous" out of the picture. It's Induced Abortion caused by actions of the United States Military. Why I got off on this tangent was a series of comments supporting the Murder Campaign errr... Wars of Liberation and Nation Building by a gentleman (I think) who professes to be a Good Catholic. 19328

Panama Banana say that three times real fast…

But there was a strike against the Government run Banana Industry which unlike the traditional "Banana Republic" isn't a government owned by the Banana Industry. Close enough though, they're bought and Paid (on long credit terms) for by American Fat-Cats who believed and their descendants still do that their money and American (not Rich) soldiers providing the Assassinations necessary to maintain that money entitles them to own the whole world. Especially those nations physically closest to our Arbitrarily assigned borders. By the way, Corporate Warfare and Corporate Welfare are two of the key components of Fascism. The government forces attempted to take the Union leaders prisoner, and killed two union members and wounded 120 others (by Government count) three of whom are in hospitals in comas. And under arrest. Probably for violently attacking a Police Billy Club or Gun Muzzle with their foreheads. Repeatedly throwing their heads under the stomping Jack-boots of the Police even after being handcuffed. The workers, Indigenous people mostly, (that's code for "held in perpetual povertyslavery on the basis of Race" by the way) responded by taking 4 of the cops prisoner. Only the Right Wing code for that is "hostages". One of the causes of

WOOT! Kissinger War-Crimes evidence coming out!

This one a communication FROM his Royal Satanic Lowness to the puppet leadership of the Chilean Massacres in 1976. That would be in the final year of the Noble Reign of King Gerald of Ford. You remember how Bush the Elder and Bush The Chimp accused Iraq of hiding WMDs and War Criminals... and we on the Left (the ones who are still accused of being Wrong and of course Stupid because we questioned their fake assumptions) published a map of the one country on earth which has more of each class of WMD than the rest of the world combined and also harbors more war criminals than the rest of the world combined? with the headline "We Found 'em!" 15936

Republican Party of El Salvador to lose its throne this Sunday

The Republican Party of El Salvador (ARENA), just like the Republican Party of the US, is a party of the death squads. As such, they have ruled for 20 years after inheriting the defeat of the Salvadoran Revolution by the US government. See about their coming loss of throne in this Sunday's elections. The Death Cries of the Salvadoran Right. 6874

The real Sandinistas are fed up with Daniel Ortega’s pathetic regime

There is so little hope in the pathetic Daniel Ortega... that Nicaragua's foremost Sandinista musician has withdrawn permission for this sad sack cabal around Ortega, the current Nicaraguan President, to continue to represent itself as Sandinista by using his extremely popular music at their events. See news item, Sandinistas split over revolution hymn 3529

Life not that great in the US for many Hispanic immigrants

''I hate Fidel Castro, but does that mean I should work in a cafeteria?'' she said. ``I am 44 years old, and the first and only time in my life I went hungry was in the United States. Here (in Cuba), I live in a four-bedroom house and have a car. Over there, I had to live in an apartment the size of a table.'' 3506

Nicaragua feedback

MANAGUA, NICARAGUA- My daughter and I have been in Nicaragua for a little less than three weeks now, and I am glad to have successfully gotten my surgery done and over with. In addition, I have visited with my friend, Rafael, and his family, and have gotten to see Nicaragua for the first time since my visit here in 1985. A lot has certainly changed, and I will write more about that when I get back inside The States. For right now, I am staying busy with "home schooling" my daughter by being her tour guide, of sorts, here. Next week we hit the beach! 3396

Nicaragua Nicaraguita!

Nicaragua Nicaraguita! Me and my kid will be heading out South in a couple of days to visit my good friend, Rafael, in his native land. We are both very excited to have the opportunity to visit with him once again, and wish him the right to visit with us in Colorado Springs again, too. We are all one people! 3278
