We’re not really pulling US troops out of Iraq, Barack, now are we?

President Obama, we hear your sense of urgency to 'reform' American Healthcare for American business within weeks, but not any sense that you will pull US troops out of Iraq where you plan to keep them there for another 29 months! Hey! In fact we don't really believe that you will pull them out even then, now will you? You promised all of this though simply to quiet your supporters within the now dead US 'Peace Movement', a large group of Democrats now off into a slumber party. 8302

Obama’s faith-based outreach office? Oh spare us, PLEASE!

"He [Obama] created a 25 member advisory council and named 15 of its members yesterday, including several high-profile evangelicals — the Rev. Joel Hunter, senior pastor of a Florida megachurch, and the Rev. Frank Page, president emeritus of the Southern Baptist Convention — as well as representatives from secular nonprofits, which largely had little association with Bush’s faith-based initiative. The council members are to advise the faith office on policy but will not play a direct role in allocating federal grants. The office will be headed by Joshua DuBois, a 26-year-old Pentecostal who worked on religious issues for Obama’s campaign." 6371

Barack in Iraq- freezes US inside Iraq

The big news about the new Democratic Party Administration is the obvious one. Barack Obama is not pulling the US government out of Iraq. He is stalling us there and is committed to doing that as long as the US government can get away with it, which might be quite a while? If the US were to pull out anytime soon, the simple reality is that the puppet government left behind would have its remaining days quite numbered. 6263

US ruling class tries to put new lipstick on its pig

Banks crashed on the day of CHANGE that isn't change, and the ruling class tried to put new lipstick on its pig. No major bank was spared the carnage as Bank of America's shares plunged 29 percent; Citigroup's 20 percent, and State Street Corp., which reported sharply lower earnings, saw its shares plummet 59 percent. 6172

Indian elephants fail to apply Gandhi’s theories of peaceful resistance

OK, this is a gratuitous commentary but don't blame me for it, since I've merely overdosed on the religion from the Colorado Springs Justice and Peace Commission, a group supposedly dedicated to fighting US war making and not just for going to some sort of New Age Church on off days of the week.

Obama’s plan for Afghanistan is to arm yet more death squads under Pentagon command

The US government calls them militias but the reality, like with Iraq, is that these forces are merely US controlled and trained death squads. Here is the New York Times reporting on the Obama plan for more Afghanistan occupation... Afghans and U.S. Plan to Recruit Local Militias Don't be deceived by the title of the report, since even the US government's Afghan puppet 'president' Karzai is against the Obama plan. There are no Afghans that are planning to do anything more than participate under the command of US planned death squads being launched there by Obama and Dubya. Here is the LA Times more honest title to there own report... Afghanistan's President Karzai laments coalition use of 'thugs' These 2 articles are on the Libertarian site, antiwar.com today. 5839

Obamapologists task growing Sisyphean

The anticipation is building for one hell of a JANUARY 21ST wouldn't you say? While emails are flying, about invitations to this inauguration party or that, or about holding Obama's feet to whose fire on Day One, Two or Three, the President Elect continues to stack a cabinet to defy all Hope.   What is this B-Team Obama is assembling, even beyond the Cabinet? He's chosen pop- Fundamentalist minister Rick Warren to give the inaugural invocation. 5804

Barack’s D.C. Fortress-America bunker, the Obama Nation

Barack has been busy constructing his new, D.C. Fortress-America bunker. The going is tough because Captain Dubya and his hangmen botched the job, and the new bunker will have to be heavily fortified, buried deep in bullshit, and covered with the smoke screen of smarm. 5669

‘Peace’crats refuse to be ‘United for Peace and Justice’

United for Peace and Justice is the national group that pretends to be the leadership for 'Peace' inside the US, yet they cannot even bring themself to speak out against the US war upon the people of Afghanistan! I call them 'Peace'crats because they talk about PEACE in the abstract all the time, yet remain totally tied to the Democratic Party and do not actively oppose the war of US occupation of Afghanistan or speak out forcefully against it! They don't want to embarrass Barack Obama and the Democratic Party and that is important to them above all else. 5610

Barack’s Rahmbo is not an Arab who will be mopping floors at the White House

Poor Rahmbo! Here he is and he's already having trouble covering up the arrogant, asshole, know-it-all smugness on his thuggish face, and his dad goes and runs his mouth. Well what can you expect? These terrorists are proud when their sons grow up and carry on in the family tradition (to paraphrase Hank Williams Jr.)! What did Dear Old Dad say? 5532

Nader says that Barack Obama is the worst of Clinton

Ralph Nader speaks to Alexander Cockburn about the poor performance of his campaign this year, but fails to mention the main reason that was so. This was Nader's third and most probably last run for the presidency and what it lacked was any noticeable performance by Ralph Nader in the non election years. 5474
