Best Presidental Quote EVER

Better than Nixon saying (as Vice President) "you won't have Dick Nixon around anymore" Of course he lied. Later he said "I am not a crook!" Again, he perjured. Trump was very succinct. To the point. "I'm fucked" ... actually, he's sodomized with a shovel, sideways so it would hurt more.

First Black President routs U.S. Antiwar Movement donkeys

Where is the US Antiwar Movement? What Antiwar Movement? Do you see an Antiwar Movement? Hell No (I won't go into the Streets)! No! I don't see any Antiwar Movement. See First Black President Defeats U.S. Antiwar Movement- A Black Agenda Radio commentary by Glen Ford. He did what Colin Powell and Condi Rice couldn't do alone. Oh wait! Colin endorsed Barack, didn't he? Or more like it, the Democratic Party liberal voters just defeated themselves. They were simply looking for a way out that wasn't out. They didn't want to oppose majority sentiment too hard and... Ouch! Some folk might have called them unpatriotic if they had? It was much easier to just limit themselves too voting DP and calling Republicans 'chickenhawks' and 'fascists' on the internet instead. Way too much trouble to actually go to any demonstrations! Why here in Colorado Springs the leaders of the local peace group on paid staff didn't even show up to the majority of their own public activities! They might have been seen and gotten an impolite finger or two thrown their way! ... lol... Safer to stay indoors and talk to Pentagon reps about 'greening' Fort Carson like they did. And they prayed some, too. Think I'm being harsh? Then check out the US military planes over at the El Paso County Democrats' site. I guess that they're Air Force fans? Any truth to the rumor that the Falcons are changing their name to the Drones? It would be more appropriate if they did.

$180 billion US government giveaway to one insurance group and counting

Barack Obama is going to put the US government into its grave! AIG has $61.7 billion loss, new U.S. aid may not be last ...AIG is an insurance grouping and lost about $465,000 a minute in Oct, Nov, Dec of 2008, and was a record for a U.S. company, according to Thomson Reuters data. For all of 2008, AIG lost $99.29 billion, wiping out profits dating to the early 1990s. That amount is close to the gross domestic product of Kuwait. Total giveaway 'relief' to AIG by Bush and Gerald Barack Ford s now at $180,000,000,000 and still counting! Can you smell "the recovery?"

Barack Obama resembles Gerald Ford more than he does Lincoln

Today's Denver Post print edition headline reads U.S. closes door on Guantanamo, torture. Of interest is how their internet version of this headline has changed the verb tense from 'closes' to 'closing'. Yes, well it amounts to about the same thing, kind of? Well but is it a closed book, or not? That question has to be asked because Gerald Ford supposedly closed the book on Watergate, which was where a President acted in a criminal manner but was left entirely free from facing any criminal charges! The President will be stopped (after his criminal acts become just too obvious and exposed) but is simply above the law, was how the message was left later to be read by the likes of Dubya Bush and Dick Cheney. Yes, Barack Obama wants to clean America's image up and closing Guantanamo's detention unit down is key to that. But he also wants to sweep the dirt under the rug and get on with it, so to speak. There is no evidence that he plans to prosecute anybody for the crimes they committed by running this Federal torture camp, and this is what makes us look on these seemingly positive moves with a huge amount of scepticism. Eisenhower, too, eventually stopped the McCarthyite witch hunt from going further forward, but then continued to wage the Korean War that resulted in millions going to their deaths. He kept the Cold War going full tilt, and much of the world worried that the 'cold' would become a hot war with nuclear weapons begin launched. In fact, Eisenhower's military command thought long and hard about nuking China. So looking at the edicts coming out from Barack Obama on his first day about supposedly moving to end the torture regime of the Bush Administration should not be looked at with rose tinged glasses on. Suspected U.S. missile attacks kill 18 in Pakistan At the same time as Barack is supposedly ending US government torture of POWs, his Administration is continuing the bombing of targets that hit civilians in Pakistan as often as not. Further, the bombing raids are a violation of Pakistan's sovereignty, same as the continued now Barack Occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan are, too. While nobody can expect Barack Obama to reverse all that Bush's Klan instituted with DP loyal assistance in just one or two days, let alone one or two weeks, there still is really no reason to assume that Barack has any plan to do so... EVER. In this sense, Barack Obama resembles Gerald Ford much more than he resembles Abraham Lincoln. Eventually this will become rather obvious but for now the liberal euphoria continues. They are being led around on their leashes by the corporate media and Barack, but what we are actually seeing so far is Barack Obama pardoning Bush and

What Joe Lieberman says about Obama’s ‘new’ regime?

Obama Wants Lieberman To Remain In Democratic Caucus The Huffington Post frames their thoughts along the lines of whether to have Lieberman 'punished' or not? But that is wrong. The real question is whether the 2 parties will have any differences between them at all, and Obama is answering that clearly by saying that it is not necessary? The Obama presidency will in many ways be a modern day updated version of the Gerald Ford Administration. What happened with Gerald Ford was that he was a criminal inside the Nixon group (Nixon's Vice President, in fact), who Nixon worked out an agreement with the Democratic Party and Gerald Ford himself, to have Ford be put into the White House and grant him a pardon for the crimes he had committed. YES, burglarizing other people's papers is a felony and Nixon was a felon, but no charges were ever brought against him! And even worse, no criminal charges were ever brought against any of those most responsible for the entire chain of US government atrocities delivered across SE Asia over so many years. Well, we now have the Barack Obama return of the Democratic Party to White House power, and Barack's stance on Joe Lieberman is an indicator that no admittance of any criminal charges will ever be brought against the Bush Klan, an Administration that oversaw torture used against POWs, illegal invasions of other peoples' countries, and many, many war crimes against civilian populations. His 'let's let bygones be bygones' attitude towards Joe Lieberman underscores the direction he will take towards the criminality of the entire Bush collection of gangsters. What moral bankruptcy here! How easy it would be for Barack Obama to state that YES the Democratic Party must stand for something different and Joe Lieberman is not that! Here is a man who supposedly ran on CHANGE and no change is obviously what we are getting.... JOE LIEBERMAN underlines that in spades. The 'new' regime in fact is not a new regime, but the very same old one that was there in place 8 years ago. That regime itself committed untold murders directed against the Iraqi people, and in fact, prepped the Bush Administration to do the dirty work it did. And all along, Joe Lieberman was there as part of that gang of Democrat-Republicans responsible. Joe Lieberman also underlines the bankruptcy of those who have tried to turn Al Gore into some sort of cult figure. Her in the local 'Peace'crats group, the Pikes Peak Justice and Peace Commission, they even had study sessions about the 'Thoughts' of Gore! At Common Dreams, a 'Peace'crat group that has now censored me from being able to read even their website let alone post comments there, worship of Al Gore 'thought' is a steady feature. How easy it seems for
