Look at that sea of red. Only Little Green Footballs and Daily Kos have any rebuttal to the massive right-wing red/pink blog kkkonspiracies. Because, you know, the REAL criminals of the Benghazi attack were, conveniently, Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama. I mean, Terrists gone be terrists, raht? Continue reading →
Gun control is the hot topic of the day today and today on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, former Gen. Stanley McChrystal, who led the Afghanistan war, jumped into the fray and endorsed stronger gun control laws: “I spent a career carrying typically either an M16 or an M4 Carbine. An M4 Carbine fires a .223 caliber round which is 5.56 mm at about 3000 feet per second. When it hits a human body, the effects are devastating. It’s designed for that,” McChrystal explained. “That’s what our soldiers ought to carry. I personally don’t think there’s any need for that kind of weaponry on the streets and particularly around the schools in America.” McChrystal went on to say: “We’ve got to take … Continue reading →
To the enemies of America, a giant propaganda victory is given, SPECIFICALLY to Al Qaeda. And, American command and control is diverted from paying attention to their latest round of recruitment, courtesy of the “patriots” of the GOP. Continue reading →
Last night during the debate when Mitt Romney bemoaned our lack of naval ships and said he had a ”plan for more Navy ships,” President Obama reminded Romney “that modern warfare doesn’t require the type of equipment it did in the past,” by pointing out that we don’t have “horses and bayonets” either: “Horses and bayonets” was just one of the many reminders that Romeny is stuck “in a time warp on important issues.” With women’s issues, we’ve all seen clear examples that Romney – Ryan would fight tooth and nail to overturn Roe v Wade and send women back to the 50′s in many other ways as well.
Via Foreign Policy: House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) compromised the identities of several Libyans working with the U.S. government and placed their lives in danger when he released reams of State Department communications Friday, according to Obama administration officials… …Issa didn’t bother to redact the names of Libyan civilians and local leaders mentioned in the cables, and just as with the WikiLeaks dump of State Department cables last year, the administration says that Issa has done damage to U.S. efforts to work with those Libyans and exposed them to physical danger from the very groups that had an interest in attacking the U.S. consulate. Senator John Kerry, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement … Continue reading →
Kerry swipes Romney again today over Iran foreign policy… I have little interest in inserting myself, as a former nominee of my party, into this presidential campaign season. But as the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which has a vital role in issues of national security, I feel compelled to respond to the ways that, in pursuit of the Republican nomination, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has put himself front and center in debates that have serious consequences. And on “CBS This Morning” today, Senator John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic nominee for president, said that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the Republican front-runner for nomination, was “‘behaving like a irresponsible candidate’ in criticizing the president’s Iran policy.” Senator Kerry, chairman of the … Continue reading →
That’s the crux of Brownback Friday. Not that the governor of a great midwestern state, Kansas — which is also filled with wonderful, fabulous people who don’t deserve the opprobrium of being associated with “the means justify the ends” throwback Brownback — acted like a peevish child, and ordered the disciplining of a teenage girl he was spying on.
