The hallmark of a skilled politician is the ability to speak to a group of people holding widely disparate views, and have all of them walk away believing they heard what they wanted to hear. Other than Bill Clinton, I’ve personally never seen a politician even in the same league as Barack Obama when it comes to that ability. His most consequential speeches are shaped by their simultaneous affirmation of conflicting values and even antithetical beliefs, allowing listeners with irreconcilable positions to conclude that Obama agrees with them.
The highly touted speech Obama delivered last week on US terrorism policy was a master class in that technique. If one longed to hear that the end of the “war on terror” is imminent, there are several good passages that will be quite satisfactory. If one wanted to hear that the war will continue indefinitely, perhaps even in expanded form, one could easily have found that. And if one wanted to know that the president who has spent almost five years killing people in multiple countries around the world feels personal “anguish” and moral conflict as he does it, because these issues are so very complicated, this speech will be like a gourmet meal.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev told U.S. interrogators that U.S. wars motivated him and his brother to carry out the attacks in Boston.
…evidence so far suggests they were ‘self-radicalized’.
Horribly, the brothers have a point. Americans kill children like cowards, while hiding in a trailer playing with their joysticks - not my idea of American - fuck you Obama.
The revelation that the attack was motivated by anger at U.S. foreign policy is hardly unique to this terrorist attack. Faisal Shahzad, the naturalized Pakistani-American citizen who tried to blow up a car in Times Square, also cited U.S. foreign policy in the Muslim world as a factor in why he tried to carry out his attack. U.S. drones “kill women, children, they kill everybody,” he said in court.
America: a fascist state behaving badly.
The Drone War Is A Balless Man’s War
Makes certain that NDAA allows for rendition of American citizens on American soil.
Vehemently against government transparency.
Drones children as Americas’s soul evaporates.
Obama is no Constitutional law expert but he could belong to the tea party.
Can’t be president, instead he pretends to have invented the black man’s swag.
Failed to prosecute a single bankster after an 8 trillion dollar heist, another trillion dollar heist with the Libor scandal, another heist with HSBS’s billions in money laundering. Obama crowns America’s systemic corruption as one of the one percent.
Obama, so spineless he started as a democrat and withered into a republican.
"Our fathers were brought here as slaves bacause they were captured in war, and in hand to hand fights, too. Pardon me, General, but the only cowardly blood we have got in our veins is the white blood."Benjamin Quarles
I would like to say that I formally stand against the United States Government in its murdering of innocent civilians with drones. It is a practice equivalent to murder at Dachau, Auschwitz, Sobibor or Treblinka. Drone murder is a war crime. Drone murder is an abjectly cowardly extermination of people. Drone murder is unconstitutional; it is a slaughter of human beings and is not justified by any sane or legal argument. Drone murder is a step towards total irretrievable damnation and anyone who promotes it, has in no way, Americas best interest in mind - no way.
Using drones instead of soldiers eliminates American parents outcry from the death of American solders. No outcry from the public now, even though the war continues and this strategic lack of an outcry avoids the desire to ask, “What’s the point of the war, the war, you know killing, asshole?” The lack of an outcry is creating an endless war and slaughter and a permanent wound on Americas soul. This is beyond the concept that America has been at war too long it offers that Americans are to be used as the basis for a soulless murdering war machine. Such seems to be the history of America. Except the drone slaughter itself is not so secret.
Bypassing the American people is what Obama now seems to do best and our impassioned ignorance is what the war machine needs most. Americans happily turn their back to the slaughter, the murder the cold calculating extermination of “other children” and with their heads in the ground, blame it on “government”.
The secret kept from the American people: Obama and the DOJ will not respond to a FOIA request to explain upon what legal basis American government employs to justify drone warfare. Obama and the DOJ won’t respond because they have no defense. Their silence is not in the interest of national security, their silence is because those in government have no interest whatsoever in a government for the people or representing those who put them in office. Obviously, this lack of response to a FOIA is clear proof of why Obama and trolls like him hate Bradly Manning, Julian Assange and Government Transparency. Frauds like Obama lack legitimacy as leaders and are nothing if they aren’t corrupt, incompetent whores.
There is no legal basis allowing or supporting the never ending war created by the use of drone murder.
Obama would lie like George Bush and claim he is “protecting” Americans from “the evil ones”, when in reality Obama is forcing a cowardly death of the American soul upon a cowering and willing spineless people - Americans. Not the home of the brave anymore.
There are other ways to be patriotic, than murdering children. Stand up against Obama, the neocons and their lies and the silence they use to excuse their destruction of America.
Wayne LaPierre, NRA spokesman was declared the craziest man on earth after promoting the purchase or more firearms as a solution to American school children slaughtered by firearms. Obama should receive accolades for being the coldest lying serial killer too shit stupid and unaware he is the coldest lying serial killer.
America Is Making Extermination of Children the National Pastime.
“Eisenhower understood the trade-offs between guns and butter. “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed,” he warned in 1953, early in his presidency. “The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some 50 miles of concrete highway. We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people.””
This was in 1953 … well before Eisenhower warned us about the Military Industrial Complex. I’ve always thought — and I could be faulty here — that those who spoke the most eloquently about the folly and wastefulness of war are those who actually experienced it, which makes today’s GOP chickenhawks that much more repugnant.
Enact Laws That Require Legislators Like King an Lieberman to Immediately Choose Between Incarceration Guantanamo or Active Duty on the Front Lines. These Maggots Do Much Less Than Nothing for America.

Mitch McConnell, the minority leader of the U.S. Senate, has for six years wielded the filibuster as a weapon in his rebellion against a founding principle of the United States of America – self-governance by majority rule.
McConnell’s revolt shows he believes Americans cannot govern themselves because, basically, he thinks the majority of Americans are wrongheaded. As any monarch would, he believes the minority is justified in overriding and ruling over the majority.
McConnell is the filibuster king, master of all that he and his minority minions can obstruct. With the filibuster, he zealously bludgeoned to death bills passed by a majority in the House and supported by a majority in the Senate. What was intended to be a precision tool McConnell brandished as a machine gun, murdering all majority-supported legislation in sight. Filibuster is derived from the Dutch word for thieving pirates. It is the minority stealing voting rights from the majority.
In the olden days, like during the time of the Clinton administration and earlier, the filibuster was rarely and judiciously used by both Democrat and Republican minorities. It was hauled out of the Senate parliamentary rules bin only when the measures under consideration were fairly monumental.
GOP Is SHIT
Romney led a group of his prep school cronies in cutting off the hair of an effeminate classmate named John Lauber. Lauber was held down, crying and begging for the attack to stop, while Romney allegedly cut off clumps of his bleach-blond hair with a scissors. The piece also suggests that Romney mocked another effeminate student, saying “Attagirl” whenever he made a comment in class. The stories are upsetting; and for anyone who has been bullied, it brings back terrible memories of helplessness and adolescent vulnerability.
When initially contacted by the Post, Romney denied any memory of the incident.
That the only person who appears to have no memory of the event is the one running for president of the United States seems more than mere coincidence. That he remembers Lauber well enough to know that he didn’t think he was gay – yet has no memory of attacking him – also fails to pass the smell test. There is, of course, an even worse possibility: that Romney did participate but has simply forgotten that he committed such a heinous act of cruelty.
Faced with the fact that five eyewitnesses, including indirectly the victim, confirmed the Post’s account, Romney was forced to walk back his initial blanket denial – offering instead, the most tepid of apologies:
"I played a lot of pranks in high school and they describe some that, well, you just say to yourself, back in high school, well, I did some dumb things. And if anybody was hurt by that or offended, obviously I apologize. But overall, high school years were a long time ago."
Mitt Romney lead the group. He lead and now he can not look himself in the face. “Obviously, obviously, obviously, I apologize”, Mitt apologizes and Mitt doesn’t admit to exactly what he did and that after lying about no memory of the entire incident. Mitt apologies obviously, with arrogance and insincerity, continuing to cast doubt on exactly just what he did. He lead a group of bullies, to assault one person who was weak. Romney looks down his nose at everyone, including himself. Do you really want this cowardly and dysfunctional piece of “it” for President?
Contrary to what a pathologically lying fuck said, Corporations are not people.
White Plains police reportedly used a racial slur, burst through Chamberlain’s door, tasered him, then shot him dead.
The alleged shooter, Officer Anthony Carelli, is due in court later this month in an unrelated 2008 police brutality case. Carelli is accused of being the most brutal of a group of officers who allegedly beat two arrestees of Jordanian descent and called them “rag heads.
Despite repeated requests from Chamberlain’s family for the name of the officer who killed him, White Plains Public Safety Commissioner David Chong only named Carelli as the shooter this morning, after his name appeared in an article written by Democracy Now!’s Juan Gonzalez in the New York Daily News. The White Plains police have refused to say whether Carelli has been disciplined or assigned to desk duty after the fatal shooting of Chamberlain.
White Plains Police and Mayor are Criminals and Deserve the Same as Kenneth Chamberlin.
Obama is a catastrophic failure at honesty. Our President feigns ignorance condescendingly and disgustingly to the fact that he is a willing collaborator in a Police State that has about as much resemblance to a Democracy as the Third Reich. America has evaporated, and these bastards we the corporations put in office lie to the people as if the people have to listen to lies and believe the lies, as if it is unimportant to behave honestly towards the people and as if the only reason we the people exist is to be the recipient of a lie, as if that were our job, to be lied to. We the people are not these avaricious legislatwhores pathetic children to be condescended to and set aside as unimportant. This is our country, America belongs to the 99% and not to those greedy, wealthy, pompous asses that subjugate and prey upon the people. The 1% are thieves, well dressed, haughty and articulate thieves, but nonetheless thieves.
The United States Government revels so majestically (not really) in its grand superiority amongst the nations of the world. A cowardly, duplicitous, two faced plutocratic moron that scratches its ass with the same finger it picks its teeth might, one would hope, at least know that such gifted behavior would appear damn disgusting to others. Politicians in the White House and Department of Justices behavior towards Bradley Manning is barbaric in any century and insane in its level of slow, prolonged, distracted torture, medieval torture of a decent concerned human being. The people expect more respect from leaders for the rule of law: a fast and speedy trial is a constitutional right, not a fucking privilege to be obviated by any officious ass, including a presidential ass.
Both Eric Holder and Barrack Obama should be summarily executed as enemies of the United States Constitution and perpetrators of crimes against humanity. America is not naive enough to see this travesty as anything but failure of the United States at its highest level of government.

United States Marine Corps. Sgt. Shamar “Thor” Thomas.
The video is amazing. This marine gave the cops no choice but to listen. The cops behaved like cowards, shameless cowards.
Obama lacks the balls to stand up to the Republicans so he is turning state security status number one and standing up to whistle blowers, medical marijuana, anti-war activists. Obama has proven himself to be an ineffectual coward.
