Veterans Attempt Citizens Arrest Of Rumsfeld In Boston
Post Date: 2011-09-28 18:01:01 by Brian S
Several members of the group Veterans for Peace were escorted out of the Old South Meeting House in Boston Monday night after they attempted a citizen’s arrest of former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. “I went down in front and looked Donald Rumsfeld in the eye and said, ‘I’m making a citizen’s arrest,’” protester Nate Goldschlag told WCVB-TV. “He lied us into Iraq. He lied about weapons of mass destruction. He lied about Saddam Hussein being involved in 9/11.” Three of the protesters removed from the event were with Veterans for Peace and a fourth was a member of Code Pink. One protester was arrested outside the event for allegedly using a ...

Ford Yanks Bailout Ad Amidst Controversy
Post Date: 2011-09-27 15:20:48 by Brian S
Ford has pulled its controversial "Drive One: Press Conference" ad starring owner Chris*, who offered negative commentary of the government-sponsored bankruptcies of crosstown rivals Chrysler and General Motors when asked why he chose to buy a Ford. You'll recall that Ford and its CEO, Alan Mulally, was – and continues to be – publicly supportive of the auto bailouts. While it seems a bit incongruous to both be supportive of the bailouts and to use them as a marketing point to help sell cars, you'd think Ford would be able to do as it pleases with its advertising – especially considering it didn't succumb to bankruptcy and take a government bailout ...

Chris Christie, The Ironic Tea Party Idol
Post Date: 2011-09-27 13:14:36 by Brian S
This is the moment that those who have been dreaming of a Chris Christie presidential campaign have been waiting for. Rick Perry is starting to look like a bust, enthusiasm for Mitt Romney remains minimal at best, none of the other Republican candidates has a prayer, and the GOP nomination -- thanks to the stalled economy and the low Obama approval ratings it has yielded -- is looking more and more valuable. And now Christie is set to deliver a speech at the Reagan Library tonight on "how the United States' role and significance in the world is defined by who we are at home." It comes as top-level GOP donors are turning up the heat on Christie to enter -- and as one of his ...

Arkansas' Hillbilly Image Resonates Into 21st Century
Post Date: 2011-09-27 13:10:22 by Brian S
By Suzi Parker LITTLE ROCK, Ark | Mon Sep 26, 2011 9:06am EDT (Reuters) - The image of barefoot mountain hillbillies has made many Arkansans cringe for decades. But it's a hard one to shake -- even though the state produced a two-term president in Bill Clinton, a famous author in John Grisham, and one of the world's most successful entrepreneurs in Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton. This weekend, in conjunction with the Old State House Museum exhibit "Arkansas Arkansaw: A State And Its Reputation," academics addressed the ongoing inferiority complex the state has always suffered, thanks to hillbilly lore. "Arkansans understand the slights, the insecurities, and that it ...

Sarah Palin Threatens To Sue Author Of "Rogue" Book
Post Date: 2011-09-27 12:37:07 by Brian S
(Reuters) - Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin threatened on Monday to sue the author and publisher of an unflattering biography she said was filled with "lies and rumors presented as fact." The book by veteran political writer Joe McGinniss, "The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin," was published last week as speculation mounted about whether the Republican conservative firebrand would launch a late bid for her party's presidential nomination in 2012. A letter from Palin's lawyer said McGinniss and Crown Publishing faced possible legal action for defaming the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee. The letter advises the author and Crown to refrain ...

A Pattern Of Disappointment Emerges In The Republican Presidential Primary [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2011-09-27 11:39:36 by Brian S
It’s been the recurring theme in the race for the GOP presidential nomination: A candidate enters with a splash, then quickly fizzles, leaving Republicans clamoring for a new white knight to hurtle them into the White House. It happened with former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty. It happened with Rep. Michele Bachmann (Minn.). Now it’s happening with Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who is fending off freefall after a meteoric rise to frontrunner status. A new round of calls for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to enter the race just months before Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucuses is feeding the narrative that Republicans are underwhelmed by their choices, although conservatives ...

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 ...

Anonymous Promises Revenge Attacks For Occupy Wall Street Police Violence
Post Date: 2011-09-22 10:40:29 by Brian S
By Alastair Stevenson | September 22, 2011 6:26 AM EDT Following reports of police brutality against Occupy Wall Street protesters, Anonymous has issued a series of messages warning the authorities that the violence will not go unpunished. The reports of police violence emerged Wednesday following conflicting reports of police arresting protesters. A number of statements by Anonymous subsequently emerged claiming members of the media team covering the event had been arrested. 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 ...

‘America’s Best Rock & Roll Band’ R.E.M. Calls It Quits
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 ...
