    Oh man, this hurts my heart. I don’t know what else to say, it is so totally unjust. Thank you Jeremy for doing this for the rest of us. You are a brave soul. I only hope that the American people will become deserving of your selfless act.

    I just watched an interview by Bill Moyer of Jill Stein and Margaret Flowers. Both are physicians and very politically savvy. I was very impressed with what they had to say. They have both left their practices to work full time on social justice and environmental issues; Here’s a link to their interview: http://www.ourworldreport.com/path-to-justice

    imo, the judge certainly should have recused herself. But in as much as the DoJ has a track record for making ridiculous, over-zealous rulings and getting away with it, I don’t hold out much hope. Only a few judges remain who aren’t classist a-holes & those honorable justices are pressured into doing the wrong thing [...]

  • Thanks Jessica for this well documented post. Better that we know, of course. However, in as much as the powerful never willingly give up their power advantage, it all seems disturbing and overwhelming in the sheer pervasiveness of the surveillance/police state. No doubt it will get worse, maybe much worse before people wake up en [...]

    It is heartening (a little) to find that so many share my take on this meeting. What amazes me is that whatever bubble these so-called elites call home is so oblivious to what the rest of us think. This may be our ace in the hole, if we have one. Whatever we do, they won’t [...]

    Thumbnail What Advice Could Kissinger Offer It is difficult to trust the judgement or the veracity of what the Secretary of State John Kerry says. If it weren’t bad enough that his talking points don’t explain the real reasons he wants to drop missiles in Syria, the point is further made by the fact that he found it useful or [...]

    Thank you. I have written 3 posts (2 at FDL), gone all over the Internet posting comment after comment, and a bunch of tweets. My premise was/is simple. Of all the players involved, it was Assad who had the least to gain and the most to lose by launching a chemical attack. The best replies [...]

    I spent quite a bit of time searching online to confirm the story of the 2003 photo of rows of white wrapped bodies. All I could find were several sites that posted the story but no credible firsthand evidence. Logically, it would seem that Kerry could easily have found any number of horrific images that [...]

  • I absolutely agree. A bunch of lies and liars. I also don’t believe for a moment that Assad is behind the gas attack. Why would he? The utter stupidity of launching the attack when the inspectors are 10 miles away, makes his culpability suspect. Not to defend Assad, he’s a terrible human being but I don’t think he’s stupid or suicidal.

    I have been unable to find anything that confirms Kerry’s use of the photo from 2003 of Iraqi remains to move forward the argument of the need for intervention.

    Am I to understand that Kerry did use the photo of rows of wrapped remains to sell the notion of an attack on Syria? If so, could you give me link(s) to where I could find this info from a firsthand source? It seems odd since many of the images of the actual Syrian victims [...]

    I absolutely agree, the person with the least motivation to launch a chemical attack was Assad. He was steadily making ground with his superior weaponry & superior man-power. The only thing that could derail his hold on power would be to take action that would bring the US into the conflict. It wasn’t Assad. Jason [...]

    Bush, et al, lied us into the Iraq debacle in pursuit of “the blueprint for the Middle East.” Could it be that this administration is following the same whacko plan to invade 7 countries in the ME. http://youtu.be/9RC1Mepk_Sw Whether this is their intent, I don’t know but I do feel confident that we are systematically being lied [...]

    This whole deal is surreal in its insanity. I feel like the Obama is just gonna do it and there’s not f’ing thing I (we) can do about it. It’s wrong, it’s immoral, it’s ugly, it’s crazy. It won’t help the situation on the ground. As demonstrated by the drone program, apparently Obama only needs [...]

    “It is not around the question of whether or not the Syrian regime is responsible. It’s around the question of what is the appropriate response to this clear violation of international norms.”

    This statement appears to be prepping us, planting seeds for the next iteration in case the chemical weapons angle blows up. They can ease [...]

    When Kerry was a young man, seems he had a conscience. It’s doubtful that a conscience has a chance with a long political career.

    Fool Me Once… Let’s not make the same mistake that we made in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq. I grant that Assad is an awful person. Maybe he  could use nerve agents to kill his own people. But this isn’t about “could,” either he did or he didn’t. There are some nagging questions about Syria and [...]

    What are you thinking? What possible value can the facts have? Geez, George W even declared himself “pro-life” & then proceeded to order the invasion of Iraq and along with others in his administration are responsible for ten of thousands or some say millions of senseless deaths. I don’t believe in heaven or hell, which [...]
