Time for Bill O'Racist to Resign in Disgrace

O'Reilly should be fired for using the word "lynching" in the context of a rant about Michelle Obama, despite his faux apology. ..Lynching: A variety of howling posses composed of fire-eyed redneck thugs -- terrorists, if you will -- skulking through the woods, hauling with them an African American to a cowardly, ritualistic, vigilante execution.So how much of a fucking scumbag sack of shit racist DO YOU HAVE TO BE, to get fired?Whats sad is that his popularity clearly tells how much stale white racist dumbshits still exist in this coutnry and how much they kill any progression out of the mud.

Wow, this is a nice huge mudball of fucktards in this little board here (read the comments). AMAZING!
First, If you fall into this Liberal vs Conservative thing, you are mentally deficient.
Second, if you think FOX news, CNN, or MSNBC is "fair and Balanced" you need to to be administered some shock treatment.
Third, all you saw was somebody coming to the clear understanding that many of these news show and news channel are horrifically commercialized and stupid and respond to no problem what so ever. The American Press is a failure and has been for the last 10 years. These morning shows are just god awful commercials and this guy found out in the middle of his psat on one. Thats all.

Dumb and Dumber: Are Americans Hostile to Knowledge?

Something is happening in the U.S: Anti-intellectualism (the attitude that “too much learning can be a dangerous thing”) and anti-rationalism (“the idea that there is no such things as evidence or fact, just opinion”) have fused in a particularly insidious way. Citizens are ignorant about essential knowledge and they don't care.

How “Flat Earth” News is Killing Journalism

Senate Approves Surveillance Bill, Preserves Telecom Immunit

(While're eating shit with the Clemens/Mithcell bullshit) The Senate voted today to preserve retroactive immunity from lawsuits for telecommunications companies that cooperated with a government eavesdropping program, decisively rejecting an amendment that would have stripped the provision from a bill to modernize an electronic surveillance law.

Here, here, and here

So what does this mean?
Best said by Napoleaon16:They didn't just vote for immunity, they voted to allow WARRANT-LESS DOMESTIC SPYING. That's the bigger issue here.The Democrats did NOT have to even consider this bill. They had it within their power to table this unconstitutional legislation, yet they chose not to.Bush kidnapped and imprisoned American citizens and denied them both counsel and a day in court. Democrats legalized his actions with the Military Commissions Act; thus killing Habeas Corpus.Bush aimed America's spy satellites inward and gave access to regular law enforcement, all in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act. Democrats said "okay, just keep us informed about any future moves."Bush illegally spied on the electronic communications and financial transactions of tens of millions of Americans, without a warrant and without probable cause. Democrats legalized his actions.Bush and the Democrats are AGAINST us. Put your party politics aside for just one season and realize that. These people are colluding against our Constitutionally recognized rights. How many of you are going to continue apologizing for the president? How many are going to keep making excuses for the Democrats?These fuckers are in it together

Also if you read the story and see the comment you'll find some interesting thinking going on:

Wikipedia has a very detailed entry for David Rockefeller:
Some interesting bits:
An early connection he developed in the 1950s was with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). As well as knowing Allen Dulles and his brother John Foster Dulles — who was an in-law of the family - since his college years, it was in Room 3603 in Rockefeller Center that Allen Dulles had set up his WWII operational center after Pearl Harbor, liaising closely with MI6 which also had their principal U.S. operation in the Center. He also knew and associated with the former CIA director Richard Helms, as well as Archibald Roosevelt, Jr., a Chase Bank employee and former CIA agent, whose cousin was the CIA agent, Kermit Roosevelt, Jr., involved in the Iran coup of 1953. Also, in 1953, he had befriended William Bundy, a pivotal CIA analyst for nine years in the 1950s, who became the Agency liaison to the National Security Council, and a subsequent lifelong friend. Moreover, in Cary Reich's biography of his brother Nelson, a former CIA agent states that David was extensively briefed on covert intelligence operations by himself and other Agency division chiefs, under the direction of David's "friend and confidant", CIA Director Allen Dulles.
In November 1979, while chairman of the Chase Bank, Rockefeller became embroiled in an international incident when he and Henry Kissinger, along with John J. McCloy and Rockefeller aides, persuaded President Jimmy Carter through the United States Department of State to admit the Shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, into the United States for hospital treatment for lymphoma. This action directly precipitated what is known as the Iran hostage crisis and placed Rockefeller under intense media scrutiny (particularly from The New York Times) for the first time in his public life.
In 1965, Rockefeller and other senior businessmen formed the Council of the Americas to stimulate and support economic integration in the Americas. The Council subsequently played a key role in the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). In 1992, at a Council sponsored forum, Rockefeller proposed a "Western Hemisphere free trade area", which subsequently became the Free Trade Area of the Americas in a Miami summit in 1994.
Some positions held/institutions founded during his lifetime: Chairman/Honorary Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations (Chairman: (1970-1985); Founder and Chairman/Honorary Chairman of the Council of the Americas (1963-); Class A Director of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York; Bohemian Club, San Francisco — Rockefeller and his son, David Jr., are members of the Stowaway Camp in the Bohemian Grove.

• EXCLUSIVE! Pelosi & AIPAC put the Squeeze on KUCINICH!

(Had to sort of rip this from the origin since DIGG seems to be having a problem posting)


Editor's note: 11 Feb. 2008 — Rep. Kucinich stated today that he denies the report here and that "The incident did not happen." We have contacted the source of the story and we're waiting for his response to this. When we get it, we'll post the source's answer here. As of 8pm Feb. 11th, we stand by the story.

— 3 February 2008 — Exclusive to New Jersey Impeach Groups - — We received a phone call today from a source in the Kucinich for President campaign, telling us there’s more to the story of Rep. Kucinich’s withdrawal than is publicly known. The source gave us permission to publish this, but without attribution. We can say the source is high up in the campaign. Most progressives are aware there’s been a large flood of money feeding a campaign by Cleveland City Council democrat Joe Cimperman, who seeks to win the primary for Dennis Kucinich’s seat in Ohio’s 10th congressional district, where Dennis has served the interests of working people for 6 consecutive terms — since 1996. Here’s the rest of the story, untold ‘til now. — Click the KUCINICH BANNER to read the rest —

Before the Nevada primary, Dennis was visited by representatives of Nancy Pelosi and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee — AIPAC. They told Dennis that if he would drop his campaigns to impeach Cheney and Bush, they would guarantee his re-election to the House of Representatives.

Kucinich threw them out of his office.

Dennis now faces the toughest election campaign of his entire tenure in congress, with huge amounts of money being spent to turn his constituents against him due to “his neglect of his district while he ran for president.” Citizens should legitimately ask where Cimperman’s immense media warchest comes from.

So yes, Virginia, it is exactly as you suspected. This man the mainstream media say is not relevant, poses such a threat to the powers that be that they are hellbent to destroy him, and remove that troublemaker from congress.

It’s up to us, all who understand the crucial voice of Dennis Kucinich speaking up for justice and working to stop our country’s fall into fascist barbarity, to come forward to help him continue the peoples’ work. There’s no better time than right now, so go to CONTRIBUTE TO DENNIS KUCINICH. Help Dennis now. Help him TODAY.
