Here's what you'll get, if you elect Republican Tom Corbett governor of Pennsylvania: ex-Republican Pa. governor and former Homeland Security Advisor Tom Ridge is now spokesman for the Reckless Drillers!

Ex-Pennsylvania Republican governor becomes spokesman for the Reckless Drillers for $75,000 per month (that's $840,000/year)

"After leaving his position at Homeland Security, Tom Ridge acknowledged that the post 9/11 terror alerts were often based on "flimsy evidence" and that he had been pressured by the CIA to raise the threat level"

Tom Ridge and the FAKE terror alerts.

Billionaire brothers/Republican donors charged with fraud by SEC:

The SEC has charged billionaire Texas investors Charles and Sam Wyly with securities fraud that netted them $550 million in illicit profits through insider trading. The two brothers are among the most important donors to Republican conservative causes, and first came to public attention with their funding of the Swift Boat ads that upended John Kerry's campaign for the presidency before it even began.

Republicans block health care aid bill for 9/11 responders who are getting sick because they were told the air quality at Ground Zero was OK on 9/11; Rep Weiner goes ballistic:

House Republicans late Thursday were able to corral enough votes to defeat a bill that would have provided up to $7.4 billion in aid to those sickened by toxins resulting from the 9/11 attacks.

2003: Bush administration EPA Misled Public on 9/11 Pollution. White House ordered false assurances on air quality, report says

The Republicans voted AGAINST the unemployment extension, then voted FOR adding $59 BILLION to the debt with the war funding bill, then voted AGAINST health care aid for 9/11 responders!!! And they are FOR extending the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy. They don't give a SHIT about anything except rich people!!!

Dem Alan Grayson: One day, a Republican operative offers $100 to anyone who'll punch me in the nose. The next day, I get a death threat.

The American people are hurting. As a result of the greed, recklessness and illegal behavior on Wall Street, millions of Americans have lost their jobs, homes, life savings and their ability to get a higher education. Today, some 22 percent of our children live in poverty, and millions more have become dependent on food stamps for their food.

“The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money and more power.

They claim to be superpatriots, but they would destroy every liberty guaranteed by the Constitution. They demand free enterprise but are the spokesmen for monopoly and vested interest. Their final objective toward which all their deceit is directed is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjugation”

As I said before, polls show the Tea Party "patriots" are: well off, white, are OK with entitlements of social security/medicare/medicaid, and almost all of their taxes were cut. This is why I think there's a racist element in the Tea Party. Why is a group that had their taxes cut...protesting taxes???

WikiLeak's Julian Assange: Information Activist - he wouldn't be needed, if the controlled mainstream media we're supposed to think is "liberal" was doing their job. The Wikileaks Afghanistan War leak describes the war differently than the mainstream media has been telling us (of course). Documents are being leaked to Wikileaks, because the controlled/bought out/OWNED mainstream media can't be trusted. The MSM airs the views of the wealthy, corporations, and the military...and not US or civilians, which are most of the people in the world. It's job was supposed to be reporting on abuses of those 3 entities, and now it is on their side and speaks for them - it's been bought out and corrupted from its original intention. It is now a propaganda arm for them. The MSM allows their corruption to go on without our knowledge. It's the top of the pyramid, the umbrella under which all corruption by those 3 entities can occur. Purposely inaccurate or non-reporting on such things as 9/11, electronic voting machines, and the wars. The Big Three ordered the MSM to misinform or flat out not report on those things. It's not "liberal", as Rush Limbaugh keeps telling you. In fact? An easy way to out anyone who is a liason to the wealthy, corporations, and the military - speaking on behalf and for them - is if they call the mainstream media "liberal". Further proof, is that NO LIBERALS think the MSM is liberal.

WikiLeaks founder sees himself as 'information activist' - Australian-born Julian Assange started out as a computer hacker

Why were the Afghanistan documents leaked to Wikileaks instead of to the mainstream media? Because the mainstream media cannot be trusted:

PROOF that Pennsylvania should tax the Reckless Drillers @ 55% like the CASINOS and their threats of leaving if they're taxed are just a bluff to get out of paying ANY taxes: read the article below - casinos in Pennsylvania are flourishing at a 55% tax rate and Pennsylvania is also making money. The Reckless Drillers are NOT going to leave...even if we tax them @ 55% like the casinos. And the Reckless Drillers are like a casino, anyway - you never know which well is going to blow up, how many workers will die each time, how many people will die because of polluted water, or which lake or stream they're going to pollute. Kind of like playing Russian roulette.

"Pennsylvania topped the nation with about $1.1 billion in tax revenue from casinos in the 2009 fiscal year. The take outpaced even Nevada, where the glitz and sparkling lights of gambler-paradise Las Vegas help translate to about $832 million in tax revenue.......With nine casinos operating, Pennsylvania cannot equal the sheer power of Las Vegas' 260 casinos. But the state gains an edge in revenue streams because of a 55 percent tax rate on slots......."

And there's no liberals or blacks in it. And the ONLY people telling us it's a non-partisan, grassroots uprising ARE THOSE VERY SAME PEOPLE I MENTIONED ABOVE! Sure!

Julian Assange & Wikileaks

Once again, the controlled mainstream media we're supposed to think is "liberal" ends up reporting on the people doing the REAL reporting that THEY should be doing...just like when that Rolling Stone reporter broke the McChrystal story! I provide proof almost daily that the corporate owned mainstream media is not liberal and serves the interests of the wealthy, corporations, and the military industrial complex.

Julian Assange from Wikileaks does it again. The CIA must be looking for him. Wikileaks gets 91,000 classified documents on the "wars".

Rampant corruption by the military industrial complex war profiteers who are stealing $2.5 BILLION of our tax dollars a week on the "wars" being exposed by Wikileaks/Julian Assange. Don't expect the corporate owned mainstream media we're supposed to believe is "liberal" to expose it. They are IN ON IT. The same corporations that OWN the "news", also OWN the war profiteer companies., the online organization that posted tens of thousands of classified military field reports about the Afghan war on Sunday, says its goal in disclosing secret documents is to reveal “unethical behavior” by governments and corporations.

Afghanistan war logs: Massive leak of secret files exposes truth of occupation

• Hundreds of civilians killed by coalition troops
• Covert unit hunts leaders for 'kill or capture'
• Steep rise in Taliban bomb attacks on Nato

The war logs reveal civilian killings by coalition forces, secret efforts to eliminate Taliban and al-Qaida leaders, and discuss the involvement of Iran and Pakistan in supporting insurgents.

More than 90,000 internal records of US military actions in Afghanistan over the past six years have been published by the whistleblower website WikiLeaks. The documents provide a devastating portrait of the war in Afghanistan, revealing how coalition forces have killed hundreds of civilians in unreported incidents, how a secret black ops special forces unit hunts down targets for assassination or detention without trial, how Taliban attacks have soared, and how Pakistan is fueling the insurgency. We host a roundtable discussion with independent British journalist Stephen Grey; Pentagon Papers whistleblower, Daniel Ellsberg; former State Department official in Afghanistan, Matthew Hoh; independent journalist Rick Rowley; and investigative historian Gareth Porter.

Because he's telling the truth!!! The CIA is after him, because they don't want the REAL news out, they want you to watch ANBCBSNNX!

Big Dan's Big News July 24, 2010

Special Commentary by Big Dan: "Make no mistake about it: Obama intends to do the bidding of the REAL people in charge of this country - not the politicians from either party. He's setting up to dismantle Social Security or at least begin to cut it. The thinking behind the people really running this country, is that it will be more "palatable" if it's done by a Democrat. Just like the anti-war movement started dying out because it's a Democratic president. The fascists really running this country, the "club that you're not in", as George Carlin said, are coming after your Social Security...AND THEY'RE GOING TO GET IT!!! And all this will be pushed along by the corporate owned and controlled mainstream media we're supposed to think is "liberal". I pointed out that these Social Security stories have already begun to sprout up in the fascist media that has been bought out and speaks for the wealthiest few Americans, corporations, and the military industrial complex and their $2.5 BILLION tax dollars they steal off of us every week for their war racket and then turn around and say we need to cut all spending EXCEPT military spending which is more than everything else combined. Let me be clear: Obama is setting up to fuck us on Social Security, and he works for the same 'guys' George Bush did."

In setting up his National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, Barack Obama is again playing coy in public, but his intentions are widely understood among Washington insiders. The president intends to offer Social Security as a sacrificial lamb to entice conservative deficit hawks into a grand bipartisan compromise in which Democrats agree to cut Social Security benefits for future retirees while Republicans accede to significant tax increases to reduce government red ink.

Obama's commission is the vehicle created to achieve this deal. He ducks questions about his preferences, saying only that "everything has to be on the table." But White House lieutenants are privately talking up a bargain along those lines. They are telling anxious liberals to trust the president to make only moderate cuts. Better to have Democrats cut Social Security, Obama advisers say, than leave the task to bloodthirsty Republicans.

The president has stacked the deck to encourage this strategy. The eighteen-member commission is top-heavy with fiscal conservatives and hostile right-wingers who yearn to dismantle the retirement program. The Republican co-chair, former Senator Alan Simpson, is especially nasty; he likes to get laughs by ridiculing wheezy old folks. Democratic co-chair Erskine Bowles and staff director Bruce Reed secretly negotiated a partial privatization of Social Security with Newt Gingrich back when they served in the Clinton White House, but the deal blew up with Clinton's sex scandal. Monica Lewinsky saved the system.

Read the rest here...

George Carlin: the people really running this country have stolen everything off us except Social Security, and now they're coming for that, too, and they're going to get it:

And here's how the people really running this country get what they want: they have a "disaster", which is called a "false flag", to shock us and blame someone else while they carry out their agenda. If you think the 47 story WTC-7 building in NY fell like this naturally on 9/11 and was NOT hit by a plane, THEN YOU ARE AN ASSHOLE AND THERE IS NO HOPE FOR YOU WHATSOEVER!!! Let me be clear to you like I was above about Obama and Social Security: you have to be REALLY STUPID to think this building fell like this and was NOT hit by a plane:

Did you ever notice, if you research 9/11, that NO EXPERTS believe the "official" 9/11 story, and that the ONLY people you'll find who pushed the "official" story were the media and politicians? Look at what the REAL experts like architects, engineers, scientists, firemen, and ALL THE EXPERTS say about the "official" 9/11 story ONLY PUSHED ON US BY THE MEDIA AND POLITICIANS:
