    Several days ago, one of my arch nemesis oldfartrants, a senile old hippie bum from West LA who has a YouTube channel advocating socialism has now called for the overthrow of Donald Trump. This, after spending nearly a decade referring to Conservatives as traitors and opponents of Barack Obama as seditionists. He attacks Trump comparing him to Hitler and attacking other conservatives such as Ron Paul, Paul Ryan, John Boehner, Sarah Palin and so on. Yet now its not treason anymore to be in dissent, its no longer treason to want to overthrow an elected official like Trump or...

    Vice President Joe Biden says in a new interview that he would have run for president if he thought he could have won. “I’ll be very blunt. If I thought we could’ve put together the campaign that – that our supporters deserve and our contributors deserve, I’ll – I would have gone ahead and done it,” Biden said on “60 Minutes” late Sunday. The interview is the first the vice president has given since announcing his decision not to run for the Democratic presidential nomination last week. Biden had been mulling whether to enter the White House race for several...
  • Alan Greenspan claims Iraq war was really for oil

    AMERICA’s elder statesman of finance, Alan Greenspan, has shaken the White House by declaring that the prime motive for the war in Iraq was oil. In his long-awaited memoir, to be published tomorrow, Greenspan, a Republican whose 18-year tenure as head of the US Federal Reserve was widely admired, will also deliver a stinging critique of President George W Bush’s economic policies. However, it is his view on the motive for the 2003 Iraq invasion that is likely to provoke the most controversy. “I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: the Iraq war is...
  • Jimmy Carter: Too many Jews on Holocaust council

    Former President Jimmy Carter once complained there were "too many Jews" on the government's Holocaust Memorial Council, Monroe Freedman, the council's former executive director, told WND in an exclusive interview. Freedman, who served on the council during Carter's term as president, also revealed a noted Holocaust scholar who was a Presbyterian Christian was rejected from the council's board by Carter's office because the scholar's name "sounded too Jewish." Freedman, now a professor of law at Hofstra University, was picked by the council's chairman, author Elie Weisel, to serve as executive director in 1980. The council, created by the Carter White...

    The Boston ^ | January 3, 2007 | The legendary HELEN THOMAS!!!
    The passing of President Gerald Ford is a reminder that the Republican Party was once led by political moderates who have now been replaced by members of the radical right (read that as "neocons") and evangelicals. Ford, who had served as House Republican leader, vice president and president, understood that politics is the art of compromise. He had many friends on the opposite side of the political aisle who heartily supported his nomination to be Richard M. Nixon's vice president when Spiro Agnew was forced to step down in 1973 amid bribery allegations. That doesn't mean Ford was not a...

    Fearless White House correspondent Helen Thomas has covered nine presidents, and says Bush is undoubtedly the worst. It was the talk of the blogosphere: As part of Stephen Colbert's eviscerating roast of President Bush at the annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner in April -- wonkish Washington's equivalent of the Oscars -- he showed a hilarious video that was supposedly an "audition" for the job of White House press secretary. His costar in the satiric short: none other than the octogenarian doyenne of White House correspondents, Helen Thomas. Using actual TV footage of the White House press corps, Colbert (of...

    In the best chapter of all, titled "Lapdogs of the Press," Thomas excoriates what she describes as "the obsequious press during the run-up to the invasion of Iraq." She believes, and has often explained to a public, which has grown increasingly skeptical of reporters' failures to truly "watchdog" the president, that journalists were seriously "subdued" by the political climate immediately after 9/11. "[Reporters] forgot their credo that an eternal spotlight on public officials was the best way to keep them honest," Thomas writes. "In the long run-up to the Iraq War, reporters were bombarded with misleading information and 'spin' from...
  • Rep. Murtha: Pennsylvania's Embarassment

    Rep. Jack Murtha (D-Pa), imagines himself to be the scourge of the hawks in the Bush administration. Many journalists do, too, because they keep inviting him to appear on talk shows. So why were the targets of Mr. Murtha's wrath doubled over with laughter during his appearance last Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press?" Rep. Murtha's newfound fame is a product of his call for immediate withdrawal from Iraq, or in the dishonest way he likes to phrase it, "redeployment" from Iraq. Host Tim Russert asked Mr. Murtha to respond to a question White House political guru Karl Rove had...

    Swap Shop vendors on Saturday were still amazed and confused by the violent events that put Preston Henn in the hospital under the Baker Act. Henn, 74, was carted away in a BSO squad car after witnesses said he attacked Swap Shop vendor Joel Leibovitch, bowled over a BSO District Chief and kicked out a window in the car after deputies used a Taser to subdue him. Leibovitch and others said Henn grew more violent as the day progressed.''I was victimized, brutalized and humiliated,'' said Leibovitch, 40, a longtime tenant at the Swap Shop.Henn's attorney, William Scherer, said his client...

    Now that President Bush has won reelection, maybe he'll feel secure enough to restore the First Lady of the Press to her front-row seat. "No," predicted Helen Thomas on Friday when she keynoted the 9th Annual WomenVenture Conference at the Minneapolis Convention Center. "He's still afraid of me. He can't take my questions. Mine are very simple." When I asked her how it feels to be the scariest little old lady in America, as far as W. is concerned, she said, "I don't feel anything but sorry for him, if he can't take a tough question. He's the president of...

    CRONKITE: KARL ROVE BEHIND BIN LADEN TAPE Sat Oct 30 2004 16:31:19 ET Former CBSNEWS anchorman Walter Cronkite believes Bush adviser Karl Rove is possibly behind the new Bin Laden tape. Cronkite made the startling comments late Friday during an interview on CNN. Cronkite said he is "inclined to think that Karl Rove, the political manager at the White House, who is a very clever man, he probably set up bin Laden to this thing." Interviewer Larry King did not ask Cronkite to elaborate on the provocative election eve accusation. Developing...

    I, like probably most of you, have seen Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11. Its title is a parody of the title of Ray Bradbury’s great science fiction novel, Fahrenheit 451. This temperature 451° Fahrenheit, is the combustion point, incidentally, of paper, of which books are composed. The hero of Bradbury’s novel is a municipal worker whose job is burning books. ... ....In case you haven’t noticed, we also dehumanize our own soldiers, not because of their religion or race, but because of their low social class. Send ’em anywhere. Make ’em do anything. Piece of cake. The O’Reilly Factor. So I...

    Bush I Must Talk To Bush II On Iraq Ex-President Must Urge Diplomatic Solution To Saddam Problem POSTED: 10:35 a.m. EDT September 3, 2002 UPDATED: 12:10 p.m. EDT September 3, 2002 WASHINGTON -- It's time for former President George H.W. Bush to speak up before his son plunges the United States into another war with Iraq. The elder Bush's silence is understandable because of their delicate father-son relationship and the protocol for past presidents -- to be seen and not heard. Besides, Bush I is a prudent man (his favorite term). And he is diplomatic. He proved that during his...
