From last night's second GOP debate, comes one of the most audacious slices of BSAlert material we've possibly ever encountered. In response to Donald Trump's criticism of Jeb's brother's term in office, his response was, "At least my brother kept us safe.."

Ed Schultz has a very poignant response to this amazing utterance of delusional hubris that is very well worth watching, especially for those who might not be old enough to know better...

Unbeknownst to the mainstream media and the American people, the GOP majority in Congress passed a resolution that prohibits anyone other than the speaker of the House to call a vote to restore the Government shutdown. In effect, this sneaky little trick subverts democracy and creates a totalitarian state.

See the video where a Congressman confronts the powers that be over this slimy rule change...

Posted by Pile (8586 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


Two United States Senators implicated in extramarital sexual activity have named themselves as co-sponsors of S. J. RES. 43, dubbed the Marriage Protection Amendment. If ratified, the bill would amend the United States Constitution to state that marriage "shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman."

Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID), who was arrested June 11, 2007 on charges of lewd conduct in a Minneapolis airport terminal, is co-sponsoring the amendment along with Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), whom in July of 2007, was identified as a client of a prostitution firm owned by the late Deborah Jeane Palfrey, commonly known as The DC Madam.

[Beating Dead Horses]
With all the talk of war crimes and President Bush, it's worth bringing up a speech given by Noam Chomsky 18 years ago, about the implications if there was a Neuremburg-style war crimes tribunal and how it would treat American presidents of our lifetimes.

Obama Reacts To Bush's Godwin Move In Israel's Parlament

Posted by Pile (5008 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


In so many eloquent words, Barak Obama admits he thought he's seen every dirty political trick, until the other day when Bush spoke in front of Israel's parliament and compared the Democrats to the Nazis.

Is this the kind of "Change you deserve?" A president that goes overseas and during at time of another nation's holiday, decides to air his party's political dirty laundry to the middle east? Classy.

April 25: National Helen Thomas (True Journalist) Day!

Posted by Pile (6312 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]

[News Media]
In the wake of the latest exhibit of true journalism by what appears to be the only real journalist left in the Washington Press Corps, we proclaim April 25 HELEN THOMAS (True Journalist) DAY!

While other networks talk about steroids in sports or dogs who can ride a skateboard or American Idol, Helen Thomas is the only real news reporter left in the White House Press Corps.

More than a week after the revelation that President Bush knew and endorsed specific plans of torturing detainees, the media has been largely silent over it other than cursory mentions at best. But Helen Thomas isn’t about to go silently into that good night and becomes the first White House reporter to ask White House spokesliar Dana Perino about how the president could have lied multiple times that we do not torture only to turn around and admit that not only do we, but he approved of it.

American politicians are regularly asked what they think the best option is for Iraq.

During this election cycle, all of the candidates continue to say they will stay in Iraq. Professor Noam Chomsky makes a very rational case outlining the double standard America has on these issues and who's opinion should ultimately matter. Check out the video..

Rush Limbaugh Implicated In Vote Fraud Scheme

Posted by Pile (19931 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


In case you missed it, Rush Limbaugh, the oxycotin-taking conservative talk radio host, was urging Republicans in Texas and Ohio to skip their party's primary on March 4 and instead cast a vote for Hillary Clinton in order to prolong the fight between her and Barack Obama. And that Tuesday, as media in both states reported, thousands of Republicans did just what Limbaugh and others had suggested -- they changed parties to vote for Clinton.

One problem. That's basically illegal. And now the board of elections is looking into a criminal investigation of the matter.

White House: Destroying Evidence Is Industry Best Practice

The White House has acknowledged "recycling" its backup computer tapes of e-mail before October 2003, raising the possibility that many electronic messages — including those pertaining to the CIA leak case — have been taped over and are gone forever.

The disclosure came minutes before midnight Tuesday under a court-ordered deadline that forced the White House to reveal information it has previously refused to provide.

Before October 2003, the White House recycled its backup tapes "consistent with industry best practices," according to a sworn statement by a White House aide.

It should be noted the majority of the hijackers who flew planes into the WTC on 9/11 were Saudi Arabians.

EPA Says California Cannot Have Cleaner Air Than U.S.

Posted by Pile (5423 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


The Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday denied California and 16 other states the right to set their own standards for carbon dioxide emissions from automobiles.

The E.P.A. administrator, Stephen L. Johnson, said the proposed California rules were pre-empted by federal authority and made moot by the energy bill signed into law by President Bush on Wednesday. Mr. Johnson said California had failed to make a compelling case that it needed authority to write its own standards for greenhouse gas emissions from cars and trucks to help curb global warming.
