  • 5 Things Official Washington won't Tell you about Netanyahu's Israel
    • The #1 fact kept from the American Public is that Israel has Nuclear Weapons and the means to deliver them in Iran.
      Therefore, Iran is not and never will be a threat to Israel because the Iranians do not want to die.
      This makes Netanyahu's visit a bit suspect.

  • Is Israel's Election about enacting Jim Crow for 20% of its Citizens?
    • " undermine Israeli democracy"
      Israel is a democracy as Mississippi was a democracy in 1935.
      Israel is a Racist, Theocratic, European Colony that uses terror to control it's subject population. The Palestinian People are trying to throw off Colonial Rule and have the same right of self rule as any other people.
      Netanyahu is right, Israel should declare itself a Racist Jewish State - Because that's what it is.

  • The "Hindenburg Trap": Dump Oil, Coal & Gas Stocks if you Want to Retire
    • The Republican leaders of the House and Senate are promising to remove the present weak restrictions on Coal, Gas and Oil production and Obama and the Democrats are irrelevant because they depend on Oil Money as much as the Republicans. Now with Secret Money we won't even know who is getting Oil Money.
      The Courts?
      Obama's Justice Department will not prosecute any more Oil Men than it did Bankers. And who can afford to go against the Oil Men in court.
      If everything worked as it should, it would be a good time to get out of Oil. But our government has become corrupt so Oil will be a very good investment for a long time.
      Renewables & solar will be axed by the Republicans so Oil will continue to own our Government until people form a new party without quislings like the Clintons and Obama.
      With out big change we are doomed.

  • Iran and America's Memory Hole
    • The "History" being ignored is that Israel has Nuclear Weapons and the means to hit any target in Iran.
      Iran is not now or ever will be a threat to Israel because the Iranians do not want to die.
      This Bibi & Boehner show was stunt, but Obama is such a coward he will scuttle the Iran deal as ordered.

  • Syria: As al-Qaeda defeats 'moderate' US allies, will US ally with al-Qaeda?
    • Bush/Cheney's plan was to invalid Iraq, set up a puppet "Democratic" Pro-Western Government that would let the oil cartels control the oil supply of the Gulf and by extension the world oil market.
      This is the Neocon Fantasy and it is still being followed by Obama and it is absolutely insane.
      Obama is now going to retrain and reequip the Iraqi Army that we trained and equipped for ten years and countless Billons. The same Army that fell apart and ran away in their first battle, abandoning it's American equipment to the bad guys, to fight alongside the Iranian Army and the American Army.
      The Iranians are never going to leave and as soon as we help them whip the bad guys they will turn to the Kurds to get the oil back for the Shi'ite Iraqis, and what will we do then?
      Has anyone thought that those thousands of support personnel could be used as hostages?
      The Bibi & Boehner Show , with AIPAC shoveling Gold from the balconies, has whip Congress into action to do something against
      Iran - anything as long as it makes them seem tough.
      Does anyone seriously believe this is not going to blow up in our faces, as usual, again?
      It's really very simple: The Iraqis are not going to let us steal their oil so we should stop trying.
      We probably could have replaced oil with renewables with the money we wasted on this failed armed robbery, which is no where near over, but that's really going to Fantasy Land.

  • US Gen.: Iran's Role In Iraq's Fight Against Islamic State Might be Positive
    • "General Dempsey, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Iran's military assistance in the Tikrit offensive could be positive as long as it did not fuel sectarian divisions."
      An Iranian Shiite Army fight in a Sunni area - What possible problems could arise ?
      The Obama War Team is more delusional than Bush/Cheney's. What does Obama think he is going to accomplish?
      Is he going to wheel out Cheney to tell us the Insurgency is in it's final throes, or maybe we will be greeted as liberators?
      Obama and this nation just will not admit to the destruction we have done to steal Iraq's oil.

  • 4 Things more Dangerous to Israel than Iran's civilian Nuclear Enrichment
    • The Bibi & Boehner Show was about electioneering and fund raising, Iran is just handy.
      They had Adelson and Newt in the balcony just in case someone in Congress forgot how Newt got to win South Carolina and who showers Millions on Bibi.
      This was all to get Bibi re elected and start a "who loves Israel more" money fight in Congress. And by making Obama look weak and foolish it will harm Hillary and help Republicans.
      The fact that Bibi is a War Criminal who brags of terror bombing woman and children in Gaza just doesn't seem to matter to any of the important people.

  • Frmr Israeli Intel Head: Netanyahu's Clash w/ Obama 'Intolerable', Risks end of US UN Veto
    • Seriously, Folks: We all know Obama will fold and get us into some stupid Military Fiasco that will cost thousands of lives and Billions of Dollars.
      Support for Israel brings Money and Votes and people get to stay in Power with Money and Votes so people in Power will support Israel even if it starts using Napalm on the Kids of Gaza.
      After the AIPAC Circus and Netanyahu's gig there will be a "Who Loves Israel More" Money Fight in Congress to make points for the upcoming elections in 2016 - Where secret money will rule.
      The real threat to America is the corruption of our elected Officials.

  • In Egypt, the Law itself is an Enemy of Women's Rights
    • Who has kill tens of thousands of innocent Arab women in Afghanistan and Iraq? Who has killed thousands of Palestinian Woman in the Terror bombings of Gaza?
      Who is the No. 1 Oppressor of Arab Women ? The Good ol' Christian U S A and our dear Jewish Friends in Israel.

  • Top 5 Reasons Palestinian-Israelis Could shape the Israeli Election
    • Israel is a "Democracy" in the same sense that Mississippi was a Democracy in 1935.
      300,000 Jews from Russian don't have enough untainted "Jewish Blood" to be considered "True Jews"?
      What sort of crazy racist nonsense is that? As a non Religious person, I can see no difference between the Racist Whites of Mississippi and the Racist Jews of Israel.

  • Mother Jones Catches Bill O'Reilly Lying About Falkland Island War Coverage
    • Ol' Bill-O could have gotten just bunches of War experience in Vietnam - but he, like all the Media Giants of his Generation, found one of the outs that only existed for the White Middle Class & above: He became a Teacher at St Bendovers Catholic Boys School.
      Catholic Priests & Bill - What a world view those kids must have gotten.

  • Giuliani & Obama: Immigrant Families and Really Loving America
    • If Giuliani saying something stupid is News Worthy, the Race must be on.
      The Earth will travel over 1,000,000,000 miles around the sun before we elect the next President, and as Earth bends and distorts space time, our pols will be distorting and bending reality and reason and spewing it out across the Cosmos via the Electromagnetic spectrum

  • When you've Lost Bernie Sanders: How Netanyahu destroyed the Israel Lobby
    • Professor Cole;
      I think you underestimate the power of Fundamentalist Christians in the Republican Base to bolster the Israel Lobby.
      Many of those people believe Obama is the Anti-Christ and the world will end soon as predicted in the Book of Revelations.
      This is often hard for rational people living in the scientific, technical world to understand, but this is really part of these people's world view and no amount of reality can penetrate this cultic belief.
      Then there is the Money. Dose anyone really know what the new rules will bring?

    • The Book is: Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders .

  • Why Obama is Right to avoid double standard about Modern Christian Atrocities
    • The greatest atrocity committed by modern Christianity is the systematic, institutionalized rape of thousands of young boys by Roman Catholic Clergy.
      Religion was invented by the ruling class to support the ruling class.

  • $22 Billion to Fight ISIL in same Year Congress cut $8.7 bn in Food Stamps
    • We are there to steal the oil.
      I was a Marine in Vietnam and I know that air strikes can be devastating or useless depending on the target.
      But all air strikes need boots on the ground and you need boots on the ground to steal oil, so I'm pretty sure we will be sending troops and I'm just as sure this is going to blow up in our faces.
      Bomb the bad guys, support the good guys and they will love us so much they will help us take their one resource .
      It's insane, it does not work, but they are going to do it again.

  • Did Anyone win the Gaza Conflict? Was it even a "War"?
    • Netanyahu's state sponsored terrorism against the people of Palestine will mainly be a Victory for U S arms manufactures and Israel's puppets in the U S Congress.
      The U S will replace all the munitions used to kill Palestinians and Israel's supporters in Congress will get even more money from American Zionists and, thanks to recent decisions by the Supreme Court, secret money direct for Israel.

  • Obama's budding Cambodia Policy in Syria
    • I was a Marine in Vietnam. Words and pictures can't describe an air strike, you have to stand over a smoldering body and smell the napalm and burned flesh to get the reality of it.
      The real enemy of the American people are the oil cartels that control "our" President and Congress.
      We, the people, must take our Government back from the 1% and their lackeys and put our country to work developing sustainable alterative to oil

  • 6 Things To Know If Police Stop You In The US
    • As a PS:
      I live in a poor mixed race area in Minneapolis, when I go out late at night I ware a Vietnam Veteran's hat, I got a ride home in a rain storm once from a friendly cop.

    • "You have the right to get your ass kicked, anything the cop has can and will be used against you, you will be charged with anything the cop wants to charge you with and it will be validated by a court of law."

  • Why is Obama bombing Iraq, Really?
    • The American Government is in Iraq to steal the oil for the international oil cartels. Presidents can come and go but the rich always rule.

  • Bush Trifecta lands on Obama: Gaza, Iraq and Afghanistan Imploding
    • After 6 years of following the same policies as Bush, Obama is just as responsible as Bush for the mess we find ourselves in. If Bush invaded Iraq under false pretenses , Obama got elected with the false promise of "Change".
      As soon as he got into Office, Obama buddied up with the same crew of fools that wrecked the world economy and set us on the path of perpetual War for oil and the greed addicted 1%.

      Our only slim hope is to form a people's party not working for the 1%, but the people and the planet.

  • As Hundreds of US Troops are Sent to Iraq, Fears of Mission Creep
    • The U S Government's only interest in Iraq is to get cheap oil for the oil cartels.
      The Government's policy is to back any regime that will sell the cartels cheap oil. That these people have other priorities than enriching the global 1% is just beyond the people in our government.
      And if thousands more die and more $ Billions are wasted - So what? The Pols and the 1% never pay for their mistakes, it's always the peasants money and blood that is lost.
      The U S may have the outward form of a Democracy, but it is a functioning Plutocracy with both political parties and the MSM working for the 1%.
      We have to change our Government at home before we can hope to change it's policy overseas.

  • Hyenas vs. Rhinos: Who could the NYT get to write an Op-ed on Iraq? Hmm...
    • Non sequitur ! Being less crazy and mendacious than Bush & Co really is the faintest of praise.
      I've been on cattle drives and if steers were as well behaved and as easily led as the MSM and the Important People it would have been an easer job

    • Still got a thing for the Old Gray Lady, Professor?
      The old girl will never admit there may be a fundamental flaw in the system. When a paper voluntarily submits to censorship by the Israeli and American government you can't really believe anything it says.
      If your waiting for the Times to question the system, I'm waiting for the Times to open an Office in Gaza and hire a Palestinian Women to run it.

  • Dear Neocons: Why we're not Sending Combat Troops to Iraq no matter how much you Pout
    • The U S Government has two goals in the Middle East.
      1, Keep cheap oil flowing to the Oil Cartels.
      2, Support Israel.
      It is rank hypocrisy to talk about Democracy, or improving the lives of the people. It shouldn't surprise people that Obama and Bush both go to Military Force to coerce the People of Iraq and Afghanistan. Bush and Obama work for the Oil Cartels.
      It is our system that is rotten with corruption and until we change that, our Government will be working for the Rich who can buy anything they want.

  • Obama Prepares for Drone War in Iraq
    • aren't you forgetting "1984"?
      War is Peace
      The troops we are sending are not ground troops
      we just need to train the troops we trained for 10 years
      a Pentagon study shows our drone strikes are effective.

    • I was frightened by Obama's remarks. It seems Obama has adopted the Neocon fantasies 3.0 that have lead us into the disasters of Afghanistan and Iraq.
      When he stated that our troops died fighting for Iraqi Democracy, and the room didn't break out laughing, I realized that this is the Washington Line now.
      We spent ten years and Billions of dollars training and equipping the Iraqi army and it fell apart in it's first engagement. So Obama wants to send advisors to train the Army we trained.
      In 1967 I went to Vietnam as a bright eyed young Marine ready to slay the evil foe and "Kill a Commie for Christ". It took about a week and one firefight to figure out everything I had been told about Vietnam was a lie, but until the last helicopter left the Embassy roof the Washington lie machine was still going on about the light at the end of the tunnel.

  • It’s come to this: Fox News brings on NFL’s Terry Bradshaw for Benghazi analysis
  • 7 Myths about the Radical Sunni Advance in Iraq
    • Is ISIS really trying to "Take Bagdad"? It would make no sense, they should strengthen their hold on the Sunni territory they have taken and use the money it has stolen to refit and rearm. There is no threat from our Billion Dollar Iraqi Army and if the U S is stupid enough to start an indiscriminate bombing campaign it will only play into their hands - again.
      What I fear is that Obama will use this as an excuse to stay in Afghanistan, which is poised for a Civil War the moment our troops leave, if we leave next week or next year.

  • The seven people who need to STFU about Iraq right now
    • The smart rats get off a sinking ship first.
      I'm a combat veteran of Vietnam and have seen and smelled the dead and heard the screams of the dying. To Professors and pundits these are just word games played in nice safe places, so the dead are just abstracts.
      The words of these cowardly Chicken hawks caused the death of real people.
      If any of your friend were kill by street thugs you would demand Justice, but you give a free pass to those who have killed thousands with their lies?

    • Do you also absolve Colin Powell, who now claims his lies to the world are a "Blot on his record"?
      How can you call a man who lied repeatedly about Iraq honest ? He may have been a small cog in the Bush/Cheney lie machine but he was part of it, a just saying sorry doesn't cover it.

  • Prelude to Ethnic Cleansing? Israel Plans 3200 more Squatter homes on Palestinian Land
    • Israel has bought Congress, just like the Banks, the Oil Industry and Jackals of Wall Street.
      Obama has been irrelevant for a long time.

    • Professor Cole;
      You have got it all wrong!
      I just checked with Official Israeli sources ( The New York Times) and it was our Government that forced Israel to do this.
      By not following Netanyahu's orders Obama has caused America to lose influence with Israel.
      It is the corruption of our Government that permits Israel to dictate policy to the United States and when the Republicans take full control of Congress will see even more support for Israeli Racist Ethnic Cleansing.
      Are we going to see Obama slapped around in public by Netanyahu again ? If BiBi wants to, all he has to do is call.

  • How Reagan subverted the meaning of D-Day & the New Deal of the Greatest Generation
    • Bush and Cheney, George Will and Tommie Friedman, Rush and tough guy O'Reilly, who skipped out on Vietnam by becoming a teacher at Saint Bendovers Catholic Boys school.
      The decedents of Ronnie.
      Ronnie Ragan was a horrible human being who couldn't tell a lie from the truth and didn't care.
      He truly is the Father of the Neocons

  • Is the Prisoner Swap Hysteria a sign of GOP War withdrawal Symptoms?
    • The Democrats in Congress are just as responsible for our decade of War as the Republicans.
      Why did Obama cover for Bush/Cheney's lying us into the Iraq War ? Why did he continue the Afghan War when even he could not say what we were fighting for?
      Why? Because the Wars are very good Business and the 1% are making huge profits from our oil wars.
      Obama is just as much for sale as Bill Clinton was and the Democratic Leadership is as corrupt their Republican counterparts.
      We need a new Green Anti-corruption Party to take back our Democracy before it is too late.

  • No Sense of Urgency: Obama's New Solar Energy Commitments are still Just Baby Steps
    • Pumping poison into the air is very profitable for Politicians and the Rich people who own them.
      Obama has been as good to the Rich as Clinton and Bush/Cheney were and I don't see how some nice words and small gestures will do anything but lull the uninformed. Which is what Obama is good at.
      We need a New Party! Democrats and Republicans work for the 1%, we need a party for the 99%

  • Rep. Paul Ryan targets Poor as his "Signature Issue", and I do Mean Targets (Cartoon)
    • Isn't it strange that those who pound the Bible most also want to pound it to the poor?

  • US Supreme Court: First Amendment is Only For Christians, Upholds State-Sponsored Prayer
  • Netanyahu's Blood and Soil: The Racist-Nationalism of his "Jewish State" Ideal
    • Don't forget the White Southerners defend Slavery and Racism with the Bible and their take on Christianity.
      Organized Religion always enables the Powerful to oppress the weak with the Blessings of the Lord.

  • 43% of Denmark's Power from Renewables: Aiming for 70% by 2020
    • A burden on the 1% and an opportunity for the rest of us.
      Unfortunately, the 1% have bought our government and we get horror shows like XL Pipe line that Obama is pushing.
      We have to take our Government back or we are Doomed.

  • Fossil Fuel Subsidies Cost some $2 Trillion Annually, According To IMF
    • Corn Ethanol is immoral, if I can use such an archaic word.
      Turning food into fuel for SUVs and Limousines in a hungry world is just flat immoral.
      But that never slowed the 1% down, did it.

  • Is Obama right that America's Future is in Asia, not the Middle East?
    • I think you should look into the working and ecological conditions in China before you declare the Chinese Government cares about the little guy.

  • The New York Times Criticized for Submitting to Israeli Censors
    • What an amusing story!
      The Times own internal policy of "Everything Israel does is Wonderful and any criticism of Israel is Anti-Semitism " is very old News.

  • Government = Protection Racket for the 1 Percent
    • We need to form a peoples party right now because the Supreme Court has legalized secret bribery, gutted the voting rights act, and thing are about to get really bad.
      The 2016 Presidential election will be all secret money

  • Too Big to Jail? Why Kidnapping, Torture, Assassination, and Perjury Are No Longer Crimes in Washington
    • Obama's cover-up of the crimes of Bush/Cheney and his adoption of Bush/Cheney's middle east policy show that our two party Democracy is a fraud.
      Who ever gets elected, no matter what they say, will be working for the 1%.
      We are all working for the 1%

  • Obama and David Brooks's Manhood Problem
    • here's a real quote from "The Art of War" by The Chinese Military Master Sun Tzu:
      "If ignorant both of your enemy and yourself, you are certain to be in peril."
      If you want to see why we win every Battle but lose every Imperialist War we fight, read "The Art of War"
      I read it when I got back from Vietnam and I cried.

    • Eisenhower was a Republican, but he would have been thrown out of todays Republican Party for being too "Soft" and "Weak" by Republican Chicken Hawks like Cheney, Bush and Boehner.
      Stalin, on the other hand, would fit right in.

    • Obama didn't prosecute the crimes of Bush/Cheney because he's a ringer for the 1% and is as corrupt as Cheney.

    • Please give an example of Brooks making an intelligent comment. I've never heard one.

    • Brooks is the Gray Old Lady at The Gray old Lady.

  • Poof! John Kerry Blames Israeli Squatting in E. Jerusalem for breakdown in Peace Talks; Bennett: It's Just Zionism
    • Netanyahu will continue his ethnic cleansing because he can. Israel is a client state of America but the American Political Class is a dependent of the state of Israel.
      With the Supreme Court's legalization of secret bribery things are bound to get worse and I doubt if our next Prez will keep us from attacking Iran at Israel's bidding.

  • Why Romney is Wrong that Obama's Syria Policy Emboldened Putin
    • Good Lord! I'd forgotten the blank soul-less shark eyes and the smug ignorant nonsense.
      Doesn't this guy ever up grade his software ?
      It's depressing to think that this man may convince enough of his peers to buy him the Presidency in 2016.

  • Ukraine Crisis Shows Urgency of Green Energy: Russian Nat'l Gas Blackmail
    • If we keep burning fossil fuels our Civilization will die.
      Archaeology and History are full of Civilizations that have self destructed when the greedy few over exploited their resources for their short term gain.
      Western Civilization can go forward or fall behind, and if we fall behind it is because we weren't able to control the Greedy Bastards.

  • Kerry on Invading other Countries on a Trumped Up Pretext (Editorial Cartoon)
    • What amazed me is that he said this with a straight face! This isn't just self delusion, it seem to effect our whole Political Class: The 8 Year horror show of Bush/Cheney never happened!
      Hard to believe Kerry first appeared before Congress protesting the Vietnam War.

  • Obama to Netanyahu: Israel faces Int'l Sanctions over "Permanent Occupation of West Bank"
    • Israel has more support in Congress than Obama has, so talk of sanctions against it is nonsense.
      In the 2014 elections Israel can secretly reward it's supporters and punish it's detractors, so it's likely that Israel's interference
      with our political process will help give the Republicans control of Congress.
      Our system is broken, Congress and the president are for sale. If we don't form a new party to fight this insane corruption we are doomed.

  • Dick Cheney Broke US Military, now blames Obama for Cuts
    • That Cheney can still get air time on places other than Fox shows that the cover up by the Government and the MSM of the truth of the Bush/Cheney years is succeeding.

  • Obama Plans for complete US Withdrawal from Afghanistan in December
    • The Afghanistan National Army will collapse and it soldiers will go to work for various War Loads in the upcoming Afghan civil war.
      We have not pored Billions into Afghanistan, we have pored billions into the pockets of corrupt American contractors and rich, corrupt Afghanis.
      It's time for America to realize that we have be lied into these imperialistic war to steal oil for the 1%.
      Of course Obama knew that the Afghan war was a stupid war based on Bush/Cheney's Neo-Con fantasies, but he wanted to get elected and what were a few thousand lives and a few Billion dollars compared to him becoming top dog?

    • Petreaus built his career on lying to Congress and the American People and except for a silly little sex scandal, Petreaus would be head of the CIA.

  • 4 Darknesses: Internet being Manipulated, Deceived by Western Intel Trolls
    • 1, Of course the government is using every means available to hide the fact that it has become the servant of the Rich.
      America went through the looking glass and down the rabbit hole with Ronnie Reagan, and every president and Congress since then has spun fairytale lies to the American people while working overtime to make the rich richer.

      2, trolls are rude people, not psychopaths, and this study seems like psychobabble

  • The Enigma of Israel and Solar Energy
    • Where will the energy to run those solar plants come from?
      With few resources and unable to feed it self, Israel is no a viable State. It will be a beggar Nation for as long as America is willing to fund it.

  • On the 80th Anniversary of Repeal of Prohibition, Why isn't Marijuana Legal?
