    Just as the other news outlets refused to print anything until faced with the betrayial of their trust.

    You remember the poem by Martin-Niemöller?

    First they came for the communists
    but I didnt speak because I wasn’t a communist…….

    put in a few differant words…..and who USA4444 will speak for you when they come for you?

  • Jim S.


    Soooooooooo…what’s your point????

  • Chriscee

    Dow rises because the FEDS keeping pumping $85 BILLION FAKE DOLLARS into the economy every single month…When that stops…..DOW takes a nose dive…and democrats will take an even further nose dive.

  • AppleStinx

    On Aug. 24, 2011, armed federal agents raided Gibson Guitar Corp. facilities in Nashville and Memphis, Tenn., seizing several pallets of wood, electronic files and guitars. The company was accused of using “illegal” wood…

  • Jeff

    >Raz, are you defending/sympathizing with David Koresh? He torched his compound along with a lot of women and children(many of them his own). I know since he had a arsenal of weapons stored right with an arsenal of Bibles he a right wing icon of sorts…. But, I think our finest handled this suicidal wacky religious group and their leader, the best way they could.

    Waiting for the right wingers to claim the Postmaster General is communist controlling who gets what information. Oh Lordy!

  • usa8888

    Chriscee has virtually no education and knows nothing about economics and business–she doesn’t even understand Fed monetary policy and wants the government to contribute to economic collapse by doing nothing to aid in economic growth and job creation. Chriscee–corporate profits are at all time highs, which is driving the market in spite of Europe being in the tank and the right wing GOP trying to kill our economy in hopes of getting one of their brain deads elected to something.

  • SteveB

    if only the Mods would give us the ability to Ingore certain posters………..

  • usa8888

    Chirscee should remember that Obama’s favorability is rising and more than twice that of the right wing kooks in congress….

  • Chriscee

    When the FEDS quit pumping FAKE money into the economy…..$85 billion a month….the stock market…along with democrats….will be taking A BIG NOSE DIVE.

  • usa8888

    This just in, Chriscee: Home prices are rising more than expected and consumer sentiment is up, too…..

  • usa8888

    Chirscee doesn’t understand basic economics and thus Fed monetarty operations due to her lack of education.

  • Chriscee

    Obama’s poll numbers have FALLEN in recent days. The SCANDALS that Obama is trying to run from….are following his every foot step.

    Speculation is….Obama was high on cocaine the night Benghazi happened. And Obama was to out of it…to govern the US.

    Obama can be heard screaming


    She goes running to Obama’s office “Yes Sir?”

    He couldn’t do that. She was Michelle Obama’s boss, which makes her outrank him! Who is running the White House offices when he’s on the golf course and making his daily speech which Valerie and her team wrote. I hope I’m wrong on this thought.

    IRS Directed to Lock Down All Agency Data

    The Internal Revenue Service is in the process of locking down all computer data across the agency, a sign that investigations into the scandal-plagued agency may be taking a broader sweep than initially anticipated.

    Employees were directed not to “wipe, re-image or otherwise destroy any hard drives” on any machine currently in use or in stock. During this time, the IRS will not discard any laptop and desktop computers that are replaced, and it is ”working on securing a location” where they will be kept, according to the e-mail.


    I wonder if there is a code for a politician’s neck getting wrapped around a lamppost, and a subsequent wrapping.

    Ha Ha Good one !


    Speaking of Eric Holder’s character, do you all remember Marc Rich ?

    Marc Rich, a wealthy financier who fled the United States shortly before being charged with multiple counts of fraud, racketeering and tax evasion.
    Rich, a commodities-trading billionaire, received his pardon after his ex-wife, Denise, made substantial donations to the Democratic Party and the Clinton Presidential Library.

    Eric Holder, the departing deputy attorney general and current attorney general was behind Rich’s pardon.

    This just in: Christie and Obama working together to improve New Jersey while right wing kooks are doing the Benghazi Boondoggle led by the right wing propaganda arm,, Fox Fake News…..

  • usa8888

    Obama’s poll numbers are UP and the right wing is down. The right wing and T-party will be extinct soon with only a few kooks like Chriscee on the ship….

  • Chriscee

    @Old Mike

    He couldn’t do that. She was Michelle Obama’s boss, which makes her outrank him! Who is running the White House offices when he’s on the golf course and making his daily speech which Valerie and her team wrote. I hope I’m wrong on this thought.

    I’M wondering who was running the White House and the USA the night of Benghazi…if speculation is correct…and Obama was doing cocaine…..who was in charge? Now we know why Dan Pfeiffer said ‘Irrelevant Fact’ Where President Was During Benghazi Attacks..because once again…they are covering for Obama!!

    Gay Conservative: Obama ‘High on Cocaine’ During Benghazi Attack

    If this is true….OH BOY!

    Gay conservative Kevin DuJan claims that President Barack Obama is gay and was “was high on cocaine the night of Benghazi.”

    A prominent Egyptian lawmaker was captured on video during a trip to Gaza raving about using his various body parts to stone the Jews, before turning his ire on the United States of America.

    Sheik Muhammad Al-Saghir said during the speech that he represents the Egyptian people as a preacher at Al-Azhar and a member of the country’s parliament (his claim may be exaggerated, but he does hold a seat of some prominence.)

    “Take [my] heart, which has become as hard as steel, and use it to stone all the Jews,” Al-Saghir intoned, according to a translation by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). “…Take my skin. Turn it into a fuse or a slingshot for a child, because this land constantly begets boys as proud as [military commander] Ibn Al-Walid.”

    After lamenting the “unjust” imprisonment of their leader Omar Abdel Rahman, also known as “the blind sheik,” Al-Saghir turned his ire on the United States.

    “It is America that plunged a poisonous dagger of hatred into the heart of the Arab and Islamic nation. America holds the remote control, and commands the movements of its apes, its pigs….” he said. “Let us never forget that when you see a moving puppet, do not pay attention to the puppet itself. Always look for the filthy hands that command this puppet.”

    Bob Dole, GOP former presidential candidate, says Reagan wouldn’t recognize the GOP since its been taken over by right wing extremists…..I would agree..
