Eddie is not a "whistleblower"..

There Is No Justification For Edward Snowden's Latest Leaks

"..But as time goes on, Snowden's leaks have increasingly related to international spying and other legitimate actions of the U.S. government, which he has neither legal nor moral justification for exposing

Snowden's leaks include outing NSA foreign surveillance targets to the Brazilian government, the German government, the U.N., and even the Chinese government. Just this week reports came out that the NSA had targeted Indian diplomats for spying at their Embassy in D.C. and in New York City.

Even Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who broke the Snowden saga, said that he would not have published those Chinese addresses.

"What motivated that leak though was a need to ingratiate himself to the people of Hong Kong and China,”
Greenwald told The Daily Beast."

"Even greenwald".. Snowden's a hack drunk on his own ego.. Started pushing Propaganda the moment he got to Russia.

Snowden the "ingratiator"..

"These nations, including Russia, Venezuela, Bolivia, Nicaragua, and Ecuador have my gratitude and respect for being the first to stand against human rights violations." .. Eddie Propaganda artist

Olympics official slams US for including gay athletes in delegation

"A senior IOC member has slammed the US for including gay athletes in its official delegation to the Olympics next month. Mario Pescante, former vice president of the International Olympics Committee, is reported to have said the US should not be ‘promoting’ gay rights while in Sochi."

That "reformer",New Jersey Gov Christie, Cut $1.6 Billion from Public Education.. Koch update..



GOVERNOR CHRISTIE'S FY14 BUDGET: ANOTHER YEAR OF CUTS TO NJ PUBLIC SCHOOLS

March 21, 2013

"In his proposed FY14 State Budget, Governor Christie continues to pursue his objective of cutting funding to New Jersey public schools far below the levels needed for children to achieve academically, as established in the state's landmark school funding formula – the School Funding Reform Act of 2008 (SFRA).

In testimony to the Senate Budget Committee on March 20, Education Law Center warned legislators that the Governor’s school aid proposal for FY14 is so inadequate that it doesn’t even make up for the loss resulting from the Governor's massive cut in FY11, especially for districts with growing numbers of at-risk and bilingual students and students with disabilities.

ELC also warned that the Governor’s proposal, if adopted, would mark the fourth straight year of either funding cuts, flat funding or minimal aid increases and that this pattern is undermining New Jersey's longstanding commitment to providing all students the resources necessary to achieve the State's academic standards, regardless of where they live or in which public school district they attend school."

Fucking guy.


Excellent visuals of Scott Walker's

history of record, Scuba!

Great backstory on how "tough" Mayor Zimmer is..

Did learn about Cammarono from one of Rachel's shows.

Brilliant analogy of Christie.. "particularly ambitious tick,"!

Looking forward to Rude telling us why he thinks Mayor Zimmer didn't come forward before. Pretty sure it's going to line up with what I think.. from hearing her talk on Kornackie's and following this sordid story of the "ambitious tick".

Everything she's done has been for Hoboken! She could always have said she didn't get the money because she didn't endorse him.. but, Mayor Z went right for the facts. See ya Guadagno.

Thanks Rude and meegbear.

Hau`oli la Hanau, AsahinaKimi!

Damn Straight! thank you, lindy.. great juicy article!

Unreal!

"As Ezra Klein wrote, Gov. Christie has a staffer who is paid to follow him around with a camera, record him bullying his constituents, and proudly post the videos on YouTube. One clip showed Gov. Christie shouting “Keep walking! Keep walking!” to a constituent who was criticizing him openly."

"One of the most cowardly ways Christie exercised his executive power was by setting the date for the special election for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by the late Senator Frank Lautenberg, which popular Newark Mayor Cory Booker had already said he would seek. The three dates Christie could have chosen for the election were a Tuesday in November 2014, a Tuesday in November 2013, or a date of his choosing."

All the money he wasted because he's such an coward and wanted the vote count high so it would look good on his presidentin resume.

"Christie’s most nakedly corrupt acts as governor was in using his executive power to remove a public official from office for opposing one of his campaign contributor’s projects. On January 10, the New Jersey Pineland Commission is set to vote on a controversial pipeline that will run through state protective land, possibly harming residents nearby and threatening protected plants and wildlife."

"Nakedly corrupt" So Far.

"What Chris Christie has in common with bullies is that he steals kids’ lunch money to give to his rich friends. Since he was inaugurated in 2010, Christie has cut public education by $1 billion, while giving out $2.1 billion in corporate tax breaks – half a billion more than the state previously gave out in the last ten years combined. The most recent corporate tax break bill Gov. Christie signed made it even easier for corporations to have access to public money."

Wonderful of the Obamas, VP Joe Biden, and

all the other volunteers in a sea of Blue, she!

Yummm Mexican food for the Peeps at SOME!
