Glenn covers the revolutionaries who are currently at the center of the power web in Washington, D.C. He recaps how the politicians and the revolutionaries are using each other to gain control of the country (like the rest of us don’t even exist). He also shows a video of Larry Grathwohl, the FBI agent that infiltrated the Weather Underground and found out how they were going to take over the country and ‘re-educate’ the capitalists in centers. Those that would not relearn the socialist way would be terminated. I was shocked that Glenn had finally shown the video that most PUMAs and anti-Obama conservatives knew about before Barry got a lock on the nomination. I have re-embedded it in the Vodpod in the sidebar or leaderbar depending on the page you are on.
He also urges his viewers to read Van Jones’ STORM: Reclaiming Revolution. I have embedded a Scribed Doc of it after the vids.
Sean Hannity has Frank Luntz and his New Orleans’ focus group on for their reaction to how the oil leak disaster has been handled by the Obama administration, British Petroleum, and Obama’s tushy comment.
Mr. Luntz is shocked at the very beginning of the segment by this group of Louisianans that does not believe oil drilling should stop because the rigs will then move overseas and America will become much more dependent on foreign oil.
Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) — Suspected Taliban militants have executed a 7-year-old boy, accusing him of spying for the government, officials in southern Afghanistan said Thursday.
The execution took place Tuesday in the Sangin district of Helmand province, said Dawoud Ahmadi — the provincial governor’s spokesman.
In the past, militants have carried out similar killings of those accused of spying, Ahmadi said.
Three years ago, a 70-year-old woman and a child in the Musa Qala district of the province were executed following the same allegations, he said.
During a news conference Thursday, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said officials were looking into reports of the execution and said he condemned the act if it is confirmed to be true.
“I don’t think there’s a crime bigger than that that even the most inhuman forces on earth can commit,” Karzai said. “A 7-year-old boy cannot be a spy. A 7-year-old boy cannot be anything but a 7-year-old boy, and therefore hanging or shooting to kill a 7-year-old boy … is a crime against humanity.”
“If this is true, it is an absolutely hiorrific crime,” British Prime Minister David Cameron said during the news conference on an unannounced stop in Kabul. “If true, I think it says more about the Taliban than any book, than any article, than any speech could ever say.”
Glenn starts this program with the message that Bambi was sending when he used ‘salty language’ in reference to kicking tush earlier in the week. This was an outstanding episode on the civil war raging inside the Democratic party and the liberal left who are now heckling and throwing things at Nancy Pelosi. Unfortunately, in Glenn’s perspective, we are stuck in the middle of the war between the hyenas fighting over a our dead carcass. I don’t personally think that because I know that numbers and high ground trump almost everything.
Ever wonder why the IDF showed so much restraint with the ‘freedom flotilla’ terrorists at the outset? I know Israel is walking the knife edge right now, but they absolutely have to stop listening to and taking direction from a poser that appears to be a closet muslim and hellbent on destroying America and Israel during breaks between sets.
On our side of the world, we need to demonstrate to our fellow Americans and the rest of the world that we are at a turning point; fascism-lite and tying our ally’s hands behind their back ain’t cutting it.
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama stopped Israel from using anti-riot gear to prevent a Turkish-sponsored flotilla from breaking the siege on the Gaza Strip.
Diplomatic sources said the White House rejected Israeli intelligence assessments that the six-ship flotilla contained weapons and Islamist fighters trained to resist any boarding operation. The sources, privy to Israeli-U.S. government communications, said Obama and his leading aides pressed Israel against any act that would be deemed excessive force.
“The White House demanded that Israel exercise extreme caution and restraint in any scenario,” a diplomatic source said.
The Obama administration demands were relayed through Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Intelligence Minister Dan Meridor, the sources said. They said Barak, who has sought advanced weapons from Washington, persuaded Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to agree that the Israel Navy would not use anti-riot equipment, including tear gas, to stop the flotilla. (emphasis mine)
The sources said the Israeli intelligence community had informed the White House that the flotilla contained scores of Turks trained in weapons and hand-to-hand combat. They said the Turkish-flagged ship Marmara was believed to have contained weapons and components ordered by the Hamas regime in the Gaza Strip.
In the end, Netanyahu approved a plan for the Israel Navy to board Marmara with commandos armed with paintball guns. The commandos were quickly overpowered by Turkish fighters until the Israeli commander ordered live fire, which killed nine passengers, eight of them Turks.
Obama, whose aides were said to have been in contact with the flotilla, did not condemn the Israeli naval interception. But within hours of the bloody clash, the president withdrew his invitation to Netanyahu to come to the White House.
“The last thing the president wanted was to stand next to Netanyahu as he defended this action and blasted Hamas and its supporters in the West,” another source said.
The sources said Barak and Netanyahu decided on the details of the interception without consulting a seven-member security Cabinet committee. Later, Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Ya’alon, a former chief of staff, asserted that the naval operation had endangered the commandos.
“The prime minister decided to settle everything with the defense minister,” Ya’alon was quoted as saying. “Netanyahu shouldn’t have left such fateful decisions to an irresponsible defense minister drunk with power.”
In wake of the clash, Obama has sought to ease tensions with Turkey. On June 2, Obama telephoned Prime Minister Recep Erdogan amid rising Islamist threats against Turkey’s Christian and Jewish communities. The following day, a Roman Catholic bishop was killed by an alleged Islamist.
“Obama told Erdogan ‘Don’t rock the boat too much. We’ll take care of business,'” another diplomatic source said. “It was a very friendly message.”
On June 4, the administration, which reinvited Netanyahu, demanded the easing of Israel’s siege of the Gaza Strip. The White House said the United States was working with Israel and the Palestinian Authority to “develop new procedures for delivering more goods and assistance to Gaza, while also increasing opportunity for the people of Gaza and preventing the importation of weapons.”
“The current arrangements are unsustainable and must be changed,” White House spokesman Mike Hammer said. “For now, we call on all parties to join us in encouraging responsible decisions by all sides to avoid any unnecessary confrontations and to ensure the safety of all involved.”
Gerald Celente starts out this interview explaining the difference between socialism and fascism, and goes on to say that the top six banks control 65% of the financial assets in the country versus 1990 when they controlled 15%. I’m glad to hear somebody else saying economic fascism, because that is exactly what it is. Economic fascism is socialism with a veneer of capitalism. He also touches on the Amish farmers and the EPA, MSNBC’s documentary, “Rise Of The Right” which spins the tea parties as militia style fanatics, Alex Jones as a complete nut, and the Crash of 2010 expected before the end of the year. What else would we expect from MSNBO and ‘leg-tingling’ Chrissie. (Look for the promo after Gerald).
