“If Giuliani is the nominee, we’re going to hammer him with ads, and it’s going to be easy because the issue is simple: He’s a draft dodger,” says Jon Soltz, an Iraq vet who served as a captain and runs VoteVets.org, a left-leaning version of Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. “Giuliani gets a zero-zero,” says General Wesley Clark, an adviser to the group. “He wasn’t willing to risk his life for his country, and he has no relevant experience that’s in any way useful to be commander-in-chief. He hosted the U.N. and had a large police force.”

Look, I could care less if someone chose to dodge the draft, it was way before my time anyway. But FUCK THESE HYPOCRITICAL NEOCON CHICKENHAWKS beating the war drums to send others to war while having the audacity to try and think they can take the moral high ground on who "loves America". These so called 'America-lovers' are the same ones offshoring their money and outsourcing jobs. Giuliani is a ghoul!

Does FOX News fund terrorism?

I was reading this article titled 'Pre-9/11 Ties Haunt Saudis as New Accusations Surface' and in it states, speaking about Al Qaeda donors: "A third prominent name Mr. Moussaoui listed was Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a fabulously wealthy investor who whose television channels air racy music videos and who employs men and women side by side in his offices". A quick google search shows that Prince Alwaleed is the 2nd largest shareholder of NewsCorp behind the Murdoch family. Now, the Prince didn't take stock until 2008 I believe, but is still accused of donating millions to Al Qaeda in the 80s and 90s, and possibly even still to this day(?)

Of course he denies the accusation by pointing out that Moussaoui was deemed criminally insane (even though he helped strategically plan 9/11), but that is obviously what one would say when denying such allegations, and it seems no one is really following his or the Saudi's money (Didn't Bush even fly Saudi's out on 9/11?). Could it be possible that every advertiser that runs commercials on FOXNews which makes shareholders richer is unknowingly funding terrorism, or am I over-thinking this? Also, pretty crazy to think 2 foreign media moguls, an Australian and a Saudi Prince, teamed up in 2008 to make money bashing the US President while the so-called 'patriots' (pinheads) sit on their couches making money for foreigners to bash the Prez 24/7.

Ummm....Gov. Bobby Jindal's official portrait revealed.


Nailed it!


Did George W. Bush paint this?

White House Adviser John Podesta to Join Emerging Hillary Clinton Campaign.

Move Is Another Indication Clinton Is Working Toward Launching 2016 Presidential Bid

John Podesta, a top White House adviser, will take on a senior advisory role in Hillary Clinton’s emerging presidential bid after he leaves the administration in February, three people familiar with the matter said. The move is one of the most definitive signs yet that Mrs. Clinton is building the apparatus to launch a 2016 campaign.

LOL. Brownback To Propose Tax Revenue Increase To Help Fill Budget Gap

Oh sweet schadenfreude... few things more gratifying than watching conservatives basically admit their economic policies FAIL:

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback (R) will propose tax revenue increases in order to address the state's budget shortfall, the Wichita Eagle reported on Saturday.

Brownback announced last month that he would initiate budget cuts to help fill the large budget deficit projected to reach $279 million by June 2015. Jon Hummel, the governor's chief of staff, told the Eagle that the governor would specifically target the state's education budget.

Brownback implemented steep income tax cuts during his first term in office, which prompted some state Republicans to back the Democratic candidate in the 2014 election.

Hummel said that the governor is still focused on limiting spending despite the proposal to increase tax revenue.

"Revenue didn’t come in quite as was projected," he told the Eagle. "If we can do some things on the tax side and do some things on the budget side and still maintain that overall philosophy, then he's always been open to that."

Obama to Unveil Proposal For Tuition-Free Community College

President Obama on Friday will propose making community college tuition-free for “responsible students,” launching what officials described as an ambitious plan for the federal and state governments to widen access to higher education.

Under a program dubbed America’s College Promise, administration officials said, an estimated 9 million students a year nationwide could benefit. The average tuition savings for a full-time student at a public two-year college was estimated to be $3,800 a year.

Obama’s goal, said Cecilia Muñoz, the White House’s domestic policy director, is “to make two years of college the norm — the way high school is the norm.”

Muñoz and Ted Mitchell, undersecretary of education, discussed the plan Thursday evening in a conference call with reporters, saying it would be included in Obama’s State of the Union address and his budget.

America's rightwing now likes France??!

The French have been the butt of every conservative joke ever told for as long as I can remember. From Dennis Miller, to Larry the Cable Guy, to FOX News, to the drunk moron in your local pub, etc. The rightwing has spent their entire life calling France's men feminine and their women hairy. They call them "cowards" every chance they get, "traitors", "wimps", say "they smell like cheese", and mock their accent, etc. It always seems like when rightwingers claim to "stand" with someone i.e. Israel, now France, what they really mean is "I stand with you in hating an enemy scapegoat". It seems like hate is the only thing that gives the rightwing a sense of comradery with others, not common good or love or tolerance or understanding. Even when the other side doesn't return the same mutual feelings of hate i.e. France, Israel. It always boils down to rallying around enemy scapegoats for them.
