Phil Donohue: Bush took nation & whole media establishment by the ear & led it right into the sword

PHIL DONAHUE: And interesting—interesting, really. At that time, half the political voice in this nation was silenced, really. And I believe most people at that time opposed this war. Most people did. What are we—why—how come over there? And yet, every metropolitan—every major metropolitan newspaper in this country supported the invasion of Iraq. Think about that for a minute. Every major metropolitan—this is what you can do with the politics of fear, that Bush took this whole nation and the whole media establishment by the ear and led it right into the sword. Amazing, in the land of free speech, free press.

AMY GOODMAN: Do you see the same thing happening again right now?

PHIL DONAHUE: Well, obviously, you can see that it has slowed us up. But it looks like that's all it's done. And while we have been, you know, hesitant and not "bring them on" with the war lust that we had then, mission creep is underway. What happens when somebody is taken prisoner? I mean, we have become a warrior nation, and we have no respect for diplomacy. And we've just stood mute while the Constitution has been just shredded. This is a nation of law, unless we're scared.


If we really want to honor veterans like Tomas Young-Prosecute George W Bush/Dick Cheney For Murder

Tomas Young was right.

George W. Bush and Dick Cheney are guilty of murder, including his. They knowingly sent thousands of young Americans to die in a fight that was a based on a lie, a lie they cooked up to fuel their own political ambitions and to save the finances of Halliburton.

If that isn't cold-blooded, I don't know what is.


Every day that George W. Bush and Dick Cheney spend outside of jail is an insult to the memory of real patriots like Tomas Young.

So let's stop pretending like these two illegitimate politicians are anything other than what Tomas Young and the rest of the world knows they are - criminals - and start enforcing the law.

Let's prosecute Bush and Cheney for murder.



Looking forward hasn't done a goddamn thing to make things better
You might even say, NOT looking back has only made matters worse
America, it is past time for soul searching
Just Look at yourself...

Pelosi: "Congratulations, they won the election, but there was no wave of approval for anybody"

Quote of the Day

November 12, 2014By Taegan Goddard

“I do not believe what happened the other night is a wave. There was no wave of approval for the Republicans. I wish them congratulations, they won the election, but there was no wave of approval for anybody. There was an ebbing, an ebb tide, for us.”

— House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D), quoted by Politico.

Luke Russert Asks If SCOTUS Gutting ACA Would Be A 'Silver Lining' For Dems Following Midterm Losses

MSNBC, The Cycle, Nov. 10, 2014. Luke Russert asks Democratic strategist Angela Rye if the Supreme Court gutting the Affordable Care Act would be a "silver lining" for Democrats following their losses in the midterms because it would energize their base for 2016. Never mind the real damage it would do to real people's lives, Russert wants to talk about the political implications.

Republican Talking Points

Major Climate Deal With China Just Weakened The GOP's Favorite Argument Against Reducing Emissions

Republicans have so far been largely silent on President Barack Obama's surprise announcement of a climate deal between the United States and China.

In the past, many in the GOP have used China's apparent unwillingness to agree to such a deal as an excuse for America to stand pat as well. One clip posted on YouTube by Climate Desk shows Republican lawmakers repeatedly saying the U.S. can't act until other major emitters such as China do so.

Now that China has agreed to a deal, will anything change? Probably not: It's worth noting that these same lawmakers also name other major emitters such as India and Mexico as obstacles to changing emissions standards in the U.S.


Awkward: Watch a Supercut of Republicans Using China as an Excuse to Do Nothing About Climate Change

They Are Who We Thought They Were (Republicans And Their War On Our Kids)

My son was born in 1981 by 2050, at the threshold of that second half of his century, he’ll face the world we make for him now. The Republican party is conspiring with their paymasters in ways that will make his world significantly worse than the one our parents’ generation left for us.

They Are Who We Thought They Were (Republicans And Their War On Our Kids)
Posted by Tom Levenson at 11:58 am

Republican priorities are — not “becoming,” because they always were — clear. Facing the one unequivocal existential threat to the American way of life (for starters) over the next century, here’s the GOP response to the oncoming rush of human-caused global warming:

The new Republican Congress is headed for a clash with the White House over two ambitious Environmental Protection Agencyregulations that are the heart of President Obama’s climate change agenda.

Senator Mitch McConnell, the next majority leader, has already vowed to fight the rules, which could curb planet-warming carbon pollution but ultimately shut down coal-fired power plants in his native Kentucky. Mr. McConnell and other Republicans are, in the meantime, stepping up their demands that the president approve construction of the Keystone XL pipeline to carry petroleum from Canadian oil sands to refineries on the Gulf Coast.

At this point, Republicans do not have the votes to repeal the E.P.A. regulations, which will have far more impact on curbing carbon emissions than stopping the pipeline, but they say they will use their new powers to delay, defund and otherwise undermine them. Senator James M. Inhofe of Oklahoma, a prominent skeptic of climate change and the presumed new chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, is expected to open investigations into the E.P.A., call for cuts in its funding and delay the regulations as long as possible.
