First of all, there was no secret. The facts have been in the public domain for a decade.

I am sick of hearing the shock and consternation hitting the media when they have (or should have) known all along.

Bush authorized warrantless NSA wiretapping in October 2001. However, Joseph Nacchio former CEO of Qwest convicted April 19, 2007 of insider trading reported that the NSA in a meeting on February 27, 2001 (1 month after Bush became President and 6 1/2 months before 9/11) tried to sign Qwest up to a warrantless surveillance program and that when Nacchio refused the NSA pulled hundreds of millions of dollars worth of contracts from the company.
The entire history of getting to where we are today has been documented by the

See who sold your jobs to China

by Mulkum

I have posted this before, but I think voters need to know the facts

The same people who got Bush into office are backing Romney.

Who has been brokering the "sell off" of the American manufacturing industry  to China since 1996 (costing hundreds of millions of Americans their jobs)?

Insisted in 2000 that it  would soon get easier?

Then in 2001, bragged that the all restrictions were being removed and "HE" had the contacts and ability to broker the deals?

In 2001 GWB became President.

And

The selling of America's manufacturing industry to China went big time!

Hey Nightline! Stop creating Chaos.

by Mulkum

I have some questions for you and the rest of the traditional  media (TV, newspapers, magazines, talk radio).

Nightline, this is about your report last night, December 26, 2011.

We understand that you are trying to improve your ratings, you have an obligation to your share holders to try to increase profit.

There are problems in Iraq today, right after US troops have left.

 Really?

Why are you airing such a very narrow, manipulative report that screams collapse of society in Iraq resulting from the the US military leaving?

Why is chaos your newest buzzword?

Pres. Obama smacks down Cheney

by Mulkum

It's been nearly a year since I stood on the steps of the U.S. Capitol and took the oath of office as your President.

On that day I also made it very clear-our nation is at war against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred, and that we will do whatever it takes to defeat them and defend our country, even as we uphold the values that have always distinguished America among nations


And make no mistake, that's exactly what we've been doing.  It's why I refocused the fight-bringing to a responsible end the war in Iraq, which had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks, and dramatically increasing our resources in the region where al Qaeda is actually based, in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
 It's why I've set a clear and achievable mission-to disrupt, dismantle and defeat ,and its extremist allies and prevent their return to either country.

I had to do a double take when I saw that on the dkos front page.

It had to have been the stupidest thing I ever saw there, but then that is what happens when Google uses the information on a page to target their ads.

What next? An ad asking you if you need help finding Domestic terrorism help?

China Radio International reported the Chinese merchant ships escorted by a China's fleet sailed on the Gulf of Aden when they met some suspected pirate ships. Thousands of dolphins suddenly leaped out of water between pirates and merchants when the pirate ships headed for the China's.

The suspected pirates ships stopped and then turned away. The pirates could only lament their littleness before the vast number of dolphins. The spectacular scene continued for a while.

China initiated its three-ship escort task force on Dec. 26 last year after the United Nations Security Council called on countries to patrol gulf and waters off Somalia, one of the world's busiest marine routes, where surging piracy endangered intercontinental shipping.

Sherman, Clayton, and FTC Acts

   The antitrust laws were originally designed precisely to prevent, along with conspiracies and monopolies against the consuming public, such unfair practices against smaller competitors. Below-cost pricing to kill competitors, for example, was one of the "monopolizing" acts that were banned by the original Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890.

WA State Repubs hide party on ballot

by Mulkum

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - The state Democratic Party is suing to get a Republican on the ballot.

In the latest twist of a bruising governor's race, Democrats sued Secretary of State Sam Reed on Tuesday, saying challenger Dino Rossi should be listed as a Republican instead of "prefers GOP party" on the November ballot.

False notes for the Grand Old Party

by Mulkum

Regardless of her merits, choosing Palin is a reminder that the Republicans will do, say and try anything to win and how much that separates them from the Democrats. That should scare Democrats more than Sarah Palin's finger on the nuclear trigger.


Her pregnant, unwed 17-year-old daughter was educated in a Palin-endorsed abstinence-based health curriculum.

That abstinence education worked out real well......
