    His name is David Aguina and he’s an Army reservist. His UCMJ claims against Soltz seem thin to me — Article 88 prohibits “contemptuous words” directed at the president, not criticism, and Article 91 seems to apply only to lower-ranking soldiers and only when on duty — but it’s hard not to be moved by his story about his experience with Iraqis. Meanwhile, via LGF, one of the yKos panelists parries right-wing criticism of the incident with some clever stammering about chickenhawks. Unmentioned in his post: Glenn Greenwald, Atrios, Max Blumenthal, Ken Layne, and the countless millions of other...

    Tonight's Message from NBC/Univision's Jorge Ramos on Daily Kos, The Mainstream Media's go-to website for approved, politically-correct daily talking points, cannot be any clearer. Any Journalist that dares to not shill for Hillary, using pre-approved Democrat-provided talking points against Donald Trump will be PUBLICLY SHAMED... This displays in a very clear way the pressure that is being put on "Journalists" to Hate Trump, and therefore help Hillary. From KOS: "It doesn’t matter who you are—a journalist, a politician or a voter—we’ll all be judged by how we responded to Donald Trump. Like it or not, this election is a plebiscite...

    A MAN who claimed to be an Australian-based jihadist terrorist and encouraged attacks on local Jews has been exposed as an online troll who is in fact a young Jewish-American. The FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force swooped on Joshua Ryne Goldberg’s Florida home, where the 20-year-old lived with his parents, early Thursday, US time, after a joint investigation with the Australian Federal Police into his online activities supporting Islamic State. Mr Goldberg, under the persona “Australi Witness”, had ... boasted about inspiring the May 3 attacks on the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest in Garland, Texas, where two mujahideen were...

    Thousands of desperate migrants are camping out on roundabouts amid squalid camps overflowing with rubbish on the Greek holiday islands of Lesbos and Kos. Around 5,000 people have arrived in Lesbos in the past few days and many are forced to sleep outside amid broken glass and piles of rubble without access to water, shelter, toilets or medical care. Shocking images taken at the official Moria camp near the main town of Mitlini show filthy and overflowing latrines strewn with discarded plastic bottles and tents perched next to piles of rubbish.

    <p>Summer break a 'nightmare' for British holidaymakers, who 'won’t be coming back if it's a refugee camp next year'</p> <p>Boat people from Syria and Afghanistan and British holidaymakers have clashed on Kos – as migrants have turned the Greek island, popular with cheap package deals, into a 'disgusting' hellhole. As families – enjoying some summer sun with their kids during the half term break – relax on sun loungers on the beach, just a yards away scores of migrants have set up camp, sleeping on cardboard boxes with rubbish strewn everywhere. Anne Servante, a nurse from Manchester, had come to Kos expecting a relaxing break with her husband Tony, a retired plumber. Instead her summer break has turned into a nightmare as penniless migrants who are in Greece to claim asylum sit outside their restaurant and watch them eat.</p>

Thanks to his tests and to the provenancing of the respective pumice samples to partially far-reaching volcanic eruptions, it became possible to redefine a piece of cultural history from the second millenium B.C.

    To say that the Daily Kos, Democratic Underground, and other progressive sites have carried the water for Obama since he emerged on the national stage is a drastic understatement. They've covered up lies, downplayed scandals, accused Republicans of everything from rape to murder, and through it all declared Barack Obama as one of their greatest heroes. It takes a lot to turn the opinions of blinded sheep like these. And while they have yet to awaken to who the President really is, the NSA scandal and the government's stance on Edward Snowden has started to make them hate the man...

    Add Politico and The Daily Kos to organizations conceding that Breitbart News is reporting stories they refuse to cover. In an article describing the violent pro-union demonstrations in Michigan on Tuesday, in which protesters rallied against Michigan's historic right-to-work legislation, Politico promptly finished the piece with two paragraphs that served to dismiss everything that was written leading up to that point, quoting a poster on the liberal website The Daily Kos lamenting about the "Fox News-Breitbart" crowd. "But some on the left are saying the reports are overly exaggerated," Politico writes at the end of the article. Politico then quotes...

    Last week, I approvingly linked the Daily Kos’ report on the PPP poll it commissioned when it showed Mitt Romney leading by two point, 49/47. Markos Moulitsas responded with some snark on Twitter, wondering if I’d link future polling from his site, and I said I probably would. Since I am a man of my word, here is the latest Daily Kos/PPP weekly polling result — which turned out to be even more painful than the first for Markos: Public Policy Polling for Daily Kos & SEIU. 10/12-14.

    I know that at this moment most people don't want to hear from Markos Moulitsas. However, it's always important to see where the next attack is coming from from the left and it appears that the Daily Kos founder is hoping that the Democrats will be able to co-opt the Republican Congress. Of course, in his opinion piece in the Christian Science Monitor, he states that the election did not accept the GOP into Congress and whatever other excuses you've been hearing for the last week. He goes into the mushy rationale that the electorate was smaller and that things...

    "The Daily Kos, Twittergate & Obama's Birth Certificate Controversy Posted by Erica The Zapem blog has produced a video, Twittergate - The Democrats Hire A Twitter-Thug, which details how the Democrats hired Neal Rauhauser, a Daily Kos blogger, to paint the tea party movement as racist, homophobic, extremist and every other pejorative you can imagine. Rauhauser owns a company co-founded with Beth Becker called Progressive PST. Zapem says,"The evidence submitted demonstrates the systematic and deliberate provocation towards people in an attempt to elicit unfavorable responses after a series of malicious and vile attacks. The idea was to antagonize, collect and...

    There is more than one way to manipulate the public, and the progressive movement has turned it into an art form. Less than one week after their AstroTurf rally in Washington DC, where unions and socialist organizations foot the bill to bus people to the nation’s capital city, the Daily Kos has developed an new AstroTurf program with the objective to Google to trash Republican Candidates. “Here at Daily Kos, we are going to engage in very different, but still very important, form of election activism...It’s a grassroots-based search engine optimization campaign, which I call Grassroots SEO for short.” The...

    Markos Moulitsas, aka Daily Kos, denies being part of the Shadow Party, but his blog's latest game gives him away. They’re not calling it Googlebombing, of course. Chris Bowers at Daily Kos has given their new effort a happier name: “Grassroots SEO.” The SEO stands for “search engine optimization.” It’s actually search engine manipulation: The goal of Grassroots SEO is to get as many undecided voters as possible to read the most damaging news article about the Republican candidate for Congress in their district. It is based on two simple premises: One of the most common political activities people take...

    Daily Kos' dear leader says the Tea Party has violent tendencies. The facts disagree with him. Last week, thanks to a last minute shuffle I found myself debating Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, aka Kos of Daily Kos, on WNYC’s The Brian Lehrer Show. WNYC has posted the debate here. I encourage everyone to listen to it. It gives listeners a useful look into the mind behind the hivemind that’s leading the left’s so-called Netroots. They’re the online activists who have to a great extent been pulling the Democratic Party farther and farther to the left over the past few years. Kos,...

    Coons is appealing to the Moonbats for Money-DIRECTLY.. He invokes the name of Sarah Palin, who is hated and despised by the leftist media kooks on Kos, in his appeal, too! "With Christine O'Donnell, we face an ideology instead of a record. One of Sarah Palin's newest "Mama Grizzlies," O'Donnell will fight to roll back a woman's right to choose and lead the charge against stem-cell research, falsely claiming that this ground breaking research exploits women. She has a record of supporting discrimination against gays and lesbians, and pressing for public schools to teach creationism." "Make no mistake – Sarah...
  • Many Liberals Reject Markos Moulitsas's Anti-Conservative Book

    Many Liberals Reject Markos Moulitsas's Anti-Conservative Book Max Fisher Max Fisher Thu Sep 2, 8:06 am ET WASHINGTON, DC – A number of liberal writers are condemning American Taliban, the just-released book by prominent liberal blogger and political organizer Markos Moulitsas. Moulitsas, also known as Kos and the chief of prominent website Daily Kos, argues in his book that elements of the U.S. conservative movement are akin to the Taliban, a militant terrorist group responsible for thousands of deaths in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Some liberals--though certainly not all--think that's a bad idea. Here's why. The book's official description reads, "America's...
