Rep. Ron Paul: The Country Is Ripe For Revolution
Post Date: 2011-09-27 11:31:42 by Brian S
(CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul rallied a sold- out crowd of more than 1800 of his most ardent under-thirty-year-old supporters in New York City Monday night. Tickets to the event cost $20-25. It was originally scheduled to take place at the famed Webster Hall's Marlin Room, but, the event had to be moved to a room twice as large at the last minute due to an overwhelming response. The final setting was in the Grand Ballroom, which has hosted celebrities to the scale of Mick Jagger and Madonna. "We are seeing a level of enthusiasm for Ron Paul that can be compared with President Obama in 2008", said Eric Brakey, Media Coordinator for NYC Liberty HQ, the ...

Following the report the group issued a call for aid to help keep the live video feed chronicling the event running. After the call for aid, a number of videos appeared on YouTube showing a number of the ...

Post Date: 2011-09-21 18:54:18 by Brian S
R.E.M, once dubbed “America’s Best Rock & Roll Band,” said Wednesday they decided to “call it a day” after more than 30 years of generating hits and selling millions of records. Key members of the band, whose hits include The One I Love and Losing My Religion, addressed fans in a posting on their website, thanking them for their loyalty and saying they have astonished even themselves with their accomplishments. “To our Fans and Friends: As R.E.M., and as lifelong friends and co-conspirators, we have decided to call it a day as a band. “We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished.

Billionaire Buffett To Headline Obama Fundraisers
Post Date: 2011-09-21 18:47:04 by Brian S
(09-21) 14:16 PDT WASHINGTON (AP) -- Billionaire investor Warren Buffett will headline a pair of campaign fundraisers for President Barack Obama in the coming weeks. Obama's re-election campaign says Buffett will help raise money for the president at an event Sept. 30 in New York City. The longtime Obama adviser will also headline an event on Oct. 27 in Obama's Chicago hometown. Obama was not expected to attend either event. When Obama outlined his recommendations this week for a special congressional committee charged with finding up to $1.5 trillion in deficit cuts, he suggested that a minimum tax be imposed on millionaires. The White House is calling it the "Buffett ...

Poll: Two-Thirds Of Americans Want Taxes Raised On The Rich
Post Date: 2011-09-21 15:54:19 by Brian S
For those labeling President Barack Obama's recent comments about taxes "class warfare," a majority of Americans may think differently. At least two-thirds of Americans believe that high income earners should be taxed at a larger rate, according to a recent poll from Gallup about Obama's jobs plan proposals. Sixty-six percent of Americans told the polling firm that individuals making at least $200,000, or families bring home $250,000, should see an increase in taxes. There's an even larger majority in favoring an elimination of tax deductions for corporations, with 70 percent of the public agreeing that wealthy corporations should pay higher taxes. The survey also ...

Santorum Mocks Medicare With ‘Food Insurance’ Proposal
Post Date: 2011-09-21 15:52:52 by Brian S
Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum Wednesday attempted to illustrate the problem with Medicare by comparing it to “food insurance.” “How many people in this room can tell me what their latest health care procedure cost?” the candidate asked a group of supporters in Aiken, South Carolina. “How many can tell me what a gallon of milk costs? You all can, right? Why? Because you pay for it. But medical procedures you don’t pay for. Even going to the doctor, even basic ordinary care, you don’t pay for.” “Imagine if we had another necessity: food. Anybody believe that food is not as important as health care or even more important, right? ...

Issa Sought U.S. Clean Energy Aid in the Past
Post Date: 2011-09-21 11:48:58 by Brian S
Republican Representative Darrell Issa, who said government subsidies to specific companies can encourage corruption, sought U.S. help in the past for clean- energy projects in his home state of California. Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, wrote Energy Secretary Steven Chu to support an Energy Department loan for Aptera Motors Inc., a Carlsbad, California, electric-car maker, according to a letter received by the department Jan. 14, 2010. “Awarding this opportunity to Aptera Motors will greatly assist a leading developer of electric vehicles in my district,” Issa wrote in letters obtained yesterday. Issa’s committee has been ...

Tea Party Candidate: ‘Boehner Is A Socialist’
Post Date: 2011-09-20 13:24:05 by Brian S
A Republican tea party candidate running for Ohio’s 8th Congressional District declared Monday that House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) was a “socialist.” David Lewis told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto that he hopes to defeat Boehner in the Republican primary by running on the tea party platform. “John Boehner is a socialist,” Lewis explained. “I’m not calling him names.” “Socialist!” Cavuto objected. “Now, David, come on. That’s a little extreme.” “It’s an economic policy. I’m not calling names,” Lewis insisted. “Here is someone that refuses to phase out Social Security. What I would do as a U.S. House ...

Tea Party Rep.: Only $400,000 Left After ‘I Feed My Family’
Post Date: 2011-09-19 15:24:59 by Brian S
Tea party Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) used himself as an example Monday while arguing against President Barack Obama’s plan to make sure millionaires pay about the same tax rate as the people that work for them. “In my own case, I own LLCs,” Fleming told MSNBC’s Chris Jansing. “The income flows to my personal tax return and whatever is left over after taxes are paid, I feed my family on the one hand and on the other hand, I reinvest in my business.” “With all due respect, The Wall Street Journal estimated that your businesses, which I believe are Subway sandwich shops and UPS stores — very successful — brought you last year, over $6 million,” ...

Rick Perry Bills State $294,000 For Trip Security
Post Date: 2011-09-18 18:41:53 by Brian S
At a time when state spending reductions were used to help offset a multibillion-dollar revenue shortfall, taxpayers were billed for more than $294,000 in security detail expenses for out-of-state trips by Gov. Rick Perry or his wife, according to records released by the Texas Department of Public Safety. Destinations included the Bahamas in January for a family vacation and trips to Amsterdam, Madrid and New York by Anita Perry alone - visits that Perry spokeswoman Allison Castle said were for economic development. Perry traveled to locales including New York, Washington, California and Las Vegas for events such as promotion of his anti-Washington book, "Fed Up," speeches, ...

The Coming Republican Push On Iran
Post Date: 2011-09-18 18:28:32 by Brian S
Backed by Israel, it's the only foreign policy issue that unites the GOPBy Trita ParsiThe rise of the Arab masses has pushed Iran out of the headlines -- for now. Even Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, whose theatrics rarely pass unnoticed, has lately failed to grab the attention of the U.S. media. America's attention has instead turned toward Egypt, Syria and Libya.This is likely to change in the next few months. Not as a result of any particular developments in Iran or between the United States and Iran, but because of the 2012 presidential elections. As the Republican presidential hopefuls turn their criticism toward President Obama and not each other, Iran will likely be one of the few ...

Congress Sees Middle East Through AIPAC-Colored Glasses
Post Date: 2011-09-17 15:56:43 by Brian S
During August recess this year, 81 members of Congress went on a junket to Israel funded by the Israel lobby group AIPAC (well, funded by the American Israel Education Fund, but they are really one and the same) to " learn first-hand about one of our closest friends and allies." While the representatives insist they got a balanced view, their itinerary belies that claim: 95% of their time was spent hearing the Israeli government point of view, with only one token meeting with Palestinian reps. CODEPINK has filed a complaint with the Congressional Ethics Committee stating that these trips—and the upcoming ones scheduled for December–violate the Congressional ...

Judge Rules Against 'Deadbeat Dad' Tea Party Rep.
Post Date: 2011-09-15 13:09:14 by Brian S
A Chicago judge has ordered the tea party congressman branded a "deadbeat dad" by his critics to explain why he has not paid more than $100,00 in child support to his ex-wife over the past five years. Cook County Circuit Judge Raul Vega on Wednesday issued a “rule to show cause” against Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL), meaning the congressman has to argue why he should not be held in contempt for falling so far behind in child support. Rep. Walsh and Laura Walsh divorced in 2002. Lawyers for the Illinois Republican previously asked his ex-wife to provide extensive documentation, including records of her employment, salary, bank statements, tax returns and expense reports. After ...

Romney Praises Cheney’s ‘Wisdom And Judgment’
Post Date: 2011-09-15 13:07:10 by Brian S
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney Wednesday gave voters in Arizona some insight into what kind of vice presidential running mate he would select. The former Massachusetts governor told a town hall in Sun Lakes, Arizona he would pick someone who "could be president" like former Vice President Dick Cheney. "I think it was last weekend I was watching C-SPAN, and I saw Vice President Dick Cheney and he was being asked questions about a whole host of issues -- following 9/11, the affairs in various countries in the world," Romney recalled, according to NBC's First Read. "And I listened to him speak and said whether you agree or disagree with him, this ...

Anti-Choice Zealots Go After Clinic Owner's Children -- Here's How He's Fighting Back
Post Date: 2011-09-14 18:42:49 by Brian S
When those who provide health services for women and their families, including young children, get targeted personally by anti-choice activists, how do they make it clear that such behavior is unacceptable without stooping to the level of their opponents? One clinic landlord in Germantown, Maryland is planning a coordinated response against his harassers. He is taking this measure after anti-choicers picketed him and his children at the kids' school, displaying a huge sign accusing him of being a "baby-killer" in plain view of all the other parents and children on open school night. Perhaps most disturbingly, the sign carried the landlord's name, phone number and ...

Protect Your Care Targets Republicans With 'Let Him Die?' Campaign
Post Date: 2011-09-14 12:22:06 by Brian S
Protect Your Care, an outside political group that advocates for health care reform, launched a new campaign targeting Republicans over an eyebrow-raising incident that occurred at Monday night's GOP presidential debate. HuffPost's Sam Stein relays background on the situation that unfolded at the forum: A bit of a startling moment happened near the end of Monday night's CNN debate when a hypothetical question was posed to Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas). "What do you tell a guy who is sick, goes into a coma and doesn't have health insurance? Who pays for his coverage? Are you saying society should just let him die?" Wolf Blitzer asked. "Yeah!" several ...

Santorum: ‘People Are Living Too Long’
Post Date: 2011-09-14 12:09:19 by Brian S
Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum told supporters in Lancaster, South Carolina Tuesday that the Social Security retirement age had to be increased because “people are living too long.” “Does anybody in this room believe that somebody that 62 years old is too old to work in America today?” Santorum asked. “Social Security was established for people who were too old to work and therefore they needed the support of the federal government.” “Now back in 1936 we probably did and that made sense. Why? Because life expectancy in 1936 was 61. It’s now 80… So you have a situation where things have changed, and for our young people it will ...

Perry ‘Taken Aback’ By Debate Audience Cheering Death
Post Date: 2011-09-14 11:54:52 by Brian S
Texas Gov. Rick Perry said he was “taken aback” by cheers at the CNN/Tea Party debate Monday at in response to the hypothetical death of a man who did not have health care insurance. “I was a bit taken aback by that myself,” Perry told NBC News after appearing at a breakfast fundraiser in Tampa. “We’re the party of life. We ought to be coming up with ways to save lives.” He said his stance on life did not apply to “issues of justice” and the death penalty. “But the Republican party ought to be about life and protecting, particularly, innocent life,” Perry added. During NBC’s Republican presidential debate in early September, the ...

Tea Party Audience Cheers Letting The Uninsured Die
Post Date: 2011-09-13 00:24:25 by Brian S
The audience Monday night’s CNN Tea Party Express Republican primary debate was eager to see the death of a hypothetical man who was in a coma and also did not have health care insurance. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer posed this question to Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul: “A healthy young, 30-year-old man has a good job, makes a good living but decides, ‘You know what? I’m not going to spend $200 or $300 a month on health insurance because I’m healthy, I don’t need it.’ But something terrible happens, all the sudden he needs it. What’s going to happen if he goes into a coma? Who pays for that?” “What he should do is whatever he wants ...

Yucktard Diagnosis
Post Date: 2011-09-12 21:26:43 by Fred Mertz
Here's my take on "Twinkie" Yukon: He, she, and possibly the transexual, Yukon could actually be quite a few people. I would suspect in the last three years 20 or more have played that role. They would be mostly immature adolescent brats working in a basement boiler room somewhere in NYC or offshore. At least one is likely a porn addicted homosexual who is somewhat computer illiterate who inadvertently posts his fantasies on LP. They may be volunteers or they may work for close to minimum wage. There [sic] mission statement would be something as follows: "Attack any who do not accept the Government line on what happened on 9-11 or who question idiotic U.S. Mid-East ...

The Religious Right Sugar-Daddy Who Brought Us Rick Perry
Post Date: 2011-09-08 17:33:35 by Brian S
"Perry might never have been governor - nor now be a presidential candidate - but for James Leininger"    -- Texans for Public Justice (PDF)  These days, the emergence of Texas Governor Rick Perry as the frontrunner for the Republican Party's presidential nomination must be warming the cockles of Dr. James Leininger's heart.   Who is Dr. James Leininger, and why is he considered one of the Texas Governor's "most stalwart helpmates"? Outside of Texas, Leininger is a relatively unknown multi-millionaire. Inside the second-largest U.S. state by both size and population, however, Leininger is known as the "Sugar Daddy" of the ...

Military Officials Ignored Cheney’S 9/11 Shoot-Down Order
Post Date: 2011-09-08 13:42:36 by Brian S
Newly published audio this week reveals that Vice President Dick Cheney's infamous Sept. 11, 2001 order to shoot down rogue civilian aircraft was ignored by military officials, who instead ordered pilots to only identify suspect aircraft. That revelation is one of many in newly released audio recordings compiled by investigators for the 9/11 Commission, published this week by The Rutgers Law Review. Featuring voices from employees at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and American Airlines, the newly released multimedia provides a glimpse at the chaos that emerged as the attack progressed. Most striking of all is the revelation ...

Tea Party Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) Wants Ex-Wife Sanctioned In Child Support Case
Post Date: 2011-09-08 13:37:49 by Brian S
A tea party Republican congressman who reportedly owes over $100,000 in child support has filed a motion to have the court sanction his ex-wife. Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) is also asking the court to force former wife Laura Walsh to pay his legal bills. In July, court documents showed that Laura Walsh was suing the congressman for more than $117,000 in unpaid child support. The lawsuit pointed to a $35,000 loan he personally gave to his campaign, claiming that if he had enough for that, he had enough to help support their 9-year-old child. In a possible effort to slow down the case, lawyers for the Illinois Republican asked his ex-wife to provide extensive documentation, including records of ...

Ron Paul Fans Allege Rick Perry ‘Assault’ During Debate Break Based On Photo
Post Date: 2011-09-08 13:28:55 by Brian S
There’s no freakout like a Ron Paul fan freakout. A meme has emerged on the PaulWeb that, during a commercial break in last night’s Republican Presidential Debate, Gov. Rick Perry “assaulted” fellow Texan Ron Paul, “suddenly grab(bing)” Paul’s forearm while “aggressively pointing his index finger towards the Congressman’s face.” The only “source” for these allegations is an AP photo with a much blander caption, but that’s just what you’d expect from the anti-Paul media, right? According to Paul fansite RonPaul.com, here’s how it went down: During a commercial break at Wednesday’s Republican debate, Rick Perry ...

GOP Audience Cheers Perry’s 234 Executions
Post Date: 2011-09-08 00:14:50 by Brian S
Republican voters at Wednesday night’s Republican presidential debate expressed their approval of the death penalty by giving Gov. Rick Perry’s record on executions some of the loudest applause of the night. “Your state has executed 234 death row inmates, more than any other governor in modern times,” NBC’s Brian Williams told Perry as the conservative audience broke into cheers and applause. “Have you struggled to sleep at night with the idea that any one of those might have been innocent?” “No, sir, I’ve never struggled with that at all,” Perry flatly stated. “In the state of Texas, if you come into our state and you kill one of our ...
