Israeli spies or Benedict Arnold's who pass U.S. secrets to Israel get off scot-free! They aren't waterboarded, we only waterboard Muslims! Do they get off scot-free because Israel is blackmailing U.S. politicians? If Israel is our friend, why are they always spying on us? The U.S. government is Israeli occupied territory! They're not Benedict Arnolds...if they're Israeli! Isn't it Patriotic, to want people spying on America locked up? Anything to do with Israel seems to have a "get out of jail free" card. Why? If you or I break the law, do WE have a "get out of jail free" card? There's too many people in the U.S. government with an "over the top" Israel first/America second agenda. Israel is a foreign country, and we better start treating Israel like other foreign countries and treating Israeli spies like spies from other countries. For some reason, figure it out - THERE'S GOT TO BE A REASON! - Israel gets overboard special treatment from the U.S. government (not from the U.S. citizens, the government) and there's too many U.S. politicians, cabinet members, etc...that I question where their allegiances lie. Check out all the presidential speeches from BOTH parties. They make sure on the top of their agenda, to make it a plank in their platform to mention undying allegiance to a foreign country: Israel. Does anyone else find this behavior by U.S. politicians bizarre and suspicious, and not accept this brainwashing we've come to live with?

The "Liberal Media"

If THIS is the "liberal media"

...then what's THIS?

Democracy NOW! is on DISH channels 9410 LINK-TV and 9415 Free Speech TV (the BEST channel, bar none!), and DirecTV channel 375. You probably have these channels and don't watch them!

Wake up! 5 Corporations own 90% + of the "liberal media"! Corporations aren't "liberal"! Wake up! The SHAM wouldn't work, without the key component of getting you to BELIEVE the mainstream media is "liberal". The people who want you to THINK the mainstream media is liberal, are ON the "liberal media" crying that it's liberal! Look who's on TV all the time from the party that just got their ass kicked into the extreme minority: Dick Cheney, Newt Gingrich, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michelle Malkin, William Kristol, Glen Beck, more Republican senators and congressmen than the MAJORITY... I "get it"! Do you? Republicans have done what they always wanted and planned to do since the Nixon administration: take over the "liberal media"! All there's left to do is to look at the proof and admit it! It's hard to believe, because they make it hard to believe, by spending billions and billions of dollars to get you to believe this. Did they even get you to the point where you feel "uneasy", if you actually see Dennis Kucinich on TV? Or anyone with a non-Republican point of view? I'm careful to use the word "Republican" instead of "conservative", because the Republican Party is no longer conservative. The REAL "liberal media" is independent media, not owned by corporations: Free Speech TV, LINK-TV, the internet, community channels, and things like that. The "liberal media" is NOT: ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, & FOX. Also, YOU and ME are the "liberal media"!

They have ALL the money, they're well-financed. PROPAGANDA has endless financing. They're purposely misinforming and confusing Americans, on behalf of their billionaire financiers. They're NOT for the people. They're for the corporations. You might think that PBS is "liberal media". Think again! PBS gets both government and corporate money. A redundant statement: government and corporate! Independent media does NOT! Sure, PBS is closer to "liberal media", but it's not.

One thing for sure, the "liberal media" doesn't cover protests! Ever think about that? That's one of the MAIN tenants of the "liberal media", because it's people getting together against the corporate establishment. And corporations OWN the "liberal media"...or the so-called "liberal media". Get out with people and protest! Remember: the revolution won't be broadcast...

Another Media IS Possible

Special commentary by Big Dan: "Gee! I don't see the 'liberal media' covering the May 30 single payer day of action! You know, the 'liberal media' ANBCBSNNX that Dick Cheney and Newt Gingrich are always on, that covers 'liberal' things like single payer health care! Those 5 'liberal' corporations that own all the media in this country. Also, are you still waiting for the 'liberal media' to report on the Bush administration's policy of The Sexual Humiliation Of Iraqi Prisoners? Don't hold your breath!"

The Abu Ghraib files

The Bush Administration Were The "Few Bad Apples"

Flashback: Torture photos depict ‘rape and murder,’ Sen. Graham said in 2004

Abu Ghraib abuse photos 'show rape'

The Pentagon is denying the facts: Photographs of Abu Ghraib torture are even more sexually explicit than first reported, including rape and sodomy, writes The Daily Beast's Scott Horton, who has obtained specific and detailed corroboration of the photos.

Why does the story about photographs documenting abuse at Abu Ghraib go on and on? There’s one quick answer: because the U.S. government keeps dissembling and covering it up.

Taguba Said He Saw Video of Male Soldier Sodomizing Female Detainee

Children Raped at Abu Ghraib, General Taguba Calls it a War Crime

I bet the Republicans aren't against gays in the military in certain cases...

–An American soldier apparently raping a female prisoner.
–A male translator apparently raping a male detainee.
–A female prisoner having her clothing forcibly removed to expose her breasts.

The Bush Administration Were The "Few Bad Apples"

As happens virtually always, the facts are now starting to be examined and they reveal just how deliberately false are these right-wing smears. They just make things up without having any idea if they're true. Not only is that caricature of Sotomayor false, the opposite is true: if anything, Sotomayor's flaw is that she is excessively legalistic in her approach. And the assumption -- from both sides -- that she is some sort of pure, doctrinaire liberal seems quite dubious at best.

Racism, Hypocricy, and Homophobia at it's FINEST! And it's STILL all coming from the Republican Party! And amplified for them by the "liberal media"!

The RACIST Confederate Jesus Homophobe Party who has ZERO black senators or congressmen at the federal level - SINCE 2002! - is calling the black president whose SCOTUS nominee is a woman as well as the first hispanic and grew up dirt poor...RACIST! Now I've seen everything! And the NOT liberal media is running with it! Right after the NOT liberal media gave a forum to a former VP to say torture is "OK", which was shocking, embarrassing, and surreal! The only thing surprising about this latest Republican Noise Machine in the NOT liberal media, is that they didn't say that Sotomayor was "pallin' around with terrorists"!

I posted previously that the smearing of ANY Obama SCOTUS nominee would start, we just didn't know what it would be.

Ladies and Gentleman: the talking point smear is:


This is a nightmare for the Confederate Jesus Party: the nominee is not a man and not a white person! Bush put another two white guys on the Supreme Court, how dare Obama be a racist and not nominate another white guy! What??? We now know the "right" can say anything, absolutely anything on TV and not get called on it. So, did I convince you that the media is NOT liberal yet? Let's play a game: I am continually giving you proof that the "liberal media" is a sham, and it isn't liberal. YOU give ME some proof that it is liberal. And PROOF isn't just "saying" it's liberal!

Real racist Newt Gingrich of DICKNEWT TV twitters that Sotomayor is a racist...

'Latina woman racist should' withdraw, Gingrich Twitters

Why isn't the "liberal media" pointing out that it's REPUBLICANS & RELIGIOUS people who are behind this Prop 8 thing going on in California, and that it's just another example of REPUBLICAN & RELIGIOUS INTOLERANCE! The Confederate Jesus Homophobe Party! Accusing others of racism! The RACISTS calling others RACISTS! And the NOT liberal media running with the intolerant peoples' talking points! Please! Realize the media isn't liberal, 5 corporations own over 90% of what is called the "liberal media" ANBCBSNNX. Liberals don't own these corporations. The CREEPS I'm always pointing out to you on TV, like Dick Cheney, Newt Gingrich, William Kristol, Glen Beck, Charles Krauthammer, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Rush Limbaugh, etc...are the ones on the "liberal media" saying the media is liberal! How often do you see these people on TV: Ralph Nader, Dennis Kucinich, Cynthia McKinney, Noah Chomsky, Howard Zinn...I can name the top 100 liberals and NONE of them are ever on the "liberal media"! WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!

Is Israel turning into Nazi Germany? Check this out...

"An ultranationalist party headed by the Israeli Foreign Minister said yesterday that it has prepared legislation linking citizenship to an oath of allegiance, in what amounted to a threat to the country's Arabs to swear loyalty to the Jewish state or risk severe punishment.

The bill follows a separate proposal on Sunday by the same party that would make it illegal for Arabs to mourn the "catastrophe" – the term Palestinians use to describe their defeat and exile in the war that surrounded Israel's founding.

Both proposals by the Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman's Yisrael Beitenu party focus on the perceived disloyalty of the country's Arab citizens, roughly a fifth of Israel's population of seven million."

Maybe if Arabs don't take the oath of allegiance, they'll identify them by painting something on their door and they'll start rounding them up in camps!

Below: Gee! Do ya think Israel's making this up? I do! Raise your hand if you believe this:

Israeli document: Venezuela sends uranium to Iran

Funny, no one ever talks about the fact that Israel actually has hundreds of nuclear weapons and wiretapping Americans' phones!

Can Nobel prize winning economist Paul Krugman be frank with you? Here's why we're in trouble...

To be blunt: recent events suggest that the Republican Party has been driven mad by lack of power. The few remaining moderates have been defeated, have fled, or are being driven out. What’s left is a party whose national committee has just passed a resolution solemnly declaring that Democrats are “dedicated to restructuring American society along socialist ideals,” and released a video comparing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to Pussy Galore.

And that party still has 40 senators.

Once again, I say, why is Newt Gingrich, who holds no elected office since god knows when, always on the "liberal TV"?

Do you see what's going on here? Dick Durbin is an ACTUAL senator and Newt Gingrich is.....what is he, exactly? Do you see the media's "balance"? You get a Republican that was a congressman from a few decades ago and pit him against a current Democratic senator! You ignore Democratic VP Al Gore for 8 years, and then put Republican VP Dick Cheney on TV more in 2 weeks than Gore was on TV for 8 years! What the FUCK is going on here, with Newt Gingrich on TV all the time? Even if you're a Republican voter, this has to seem really weird to you. Can we please stop calling it the "liberal media", for god's sake? That's just not true! When 9/11 happened, did you see Al Gore and Tom Foley on TV 24x7 saying Bush & Cheney "blew it" and didn't keep us safe despite being warned? Let's play by some rules here: from 2002 to 2008 the "liberal media" said they had on mostly Republicans because they had the majority of every branch of government. That is their own words. So, what's their excuse now? They're hoping you don't ask or point this out! The answer is: the media is NOT "liberal". Where's the proof that the media is liberal? I'm providing all the proof in the world that it's NOT!

Apparently, since Bush didn't win the wars in all the years he was president, then it wasn't as easy as he said it would be. Or it would be over by now. Are these wars going to go on forever? The above propaganda article says "a leader" says Baghdad will burn. The "anonymous sources" are the CIA and the Moussad! This is one of the biggest bullshit propaganda articles I've ever seen in my life! I have an idea: when you were interviewing this guy who's going to burn Baghdad, why didn't you just GRAB HIM instead of interviewing him? Because you made it up! This is exactly why the people are cancelling their newspapers, TV ratings are going lower on the major networks, etc...because we can all see the propaganda! It's ridiculous! Let's have a never ending war! Let's never pull out, because "Baghdad will burn", right? Same old crap I've seen before, whenever there's talk about pulling out of the endless wars Bush couldn't win.

Pentagon munitions have leaked from Afghan forces to Taliban militants, enabling them to fight an insurgency for years against materially superior US and Afghan forces, The New York Times reported.

According to a Times study of ammunition markings, of 30 rifle magazines removed from the corpses of insurgents in eastern Afghanistan last month, at least 17 contained cartridges, or rounds, "identical" to ammunition the United States has provided to Afghan government forces.

Chickenhawk Rightwing Pundits (and Dick Cheney)

Girlie-Man Sean "Devo Hair" Hannity "fagged out" on being waterboarded.

Are rightwing pundits like Hannity, Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Beck, etc...just a bunch of CHICKENHAWK FAGS? And that goes for Dick "5 deferments" Cheney, too! He's a CHICKENHAWK FAG! He sends out our military based on NOW FULLY KNOWN LIES to die...and he got 5 deferments from Vietnam. Think about THAT, military families! I would like the following people waterboarded: Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, Dick Cheney, Condasleeza Rice, Donald Rumsfeld, William Kristol, George Bush (both of them), Ann Coulter, Mona Charen, Laura Inghram, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, Charles Krauthammer, David Horowitz, Paul Wolfowitz, Mort Kondracke, ANY talk radio show host who is NOT mentioning torture, and more! And especially the people on TV, all people on TV, saying torture is "OK". I would ESPECIALLY like to see big, fat, lying Rush Limbaugh waterboarded! That's my wish list.

"He's scared to death of me," says Ventura about Sean Hannity.

Video 1 - Conservative talk radio show host gets waterboarded, then admits he doesn't want to say it, but it's absolutely torture.
Video 2 - Jesse Ventura says he's going to waterboard Hannity into praising Obama
Video 3 - Olbermann Bets Hannity $1,000 Per Second Of Waterboarding
Video 4 - SBS Dateline documentary about the Abu Ghraib prison and torture.

Somewhere among the strategically placed references to September 11, 2001 and his unapologetic defense of torture, Dick Cheney managed to lie about a series of topics and events that are well documented. It is, after all, the electronic age and facts are not difficult to come by.

One must consider too what motivated the networks to carry a speech by a former Vice President in defense of torture. The ethics vacuum is mind-boggling.

We have come to a point where a former Vice President told the world that America tortures – but calls it something else - and the networks cover this as though it were a random stump speech, not the actual embarrassment and horror that it is. The facts too are missing, although only a few news outlets seem interested in the truth.

The lie Cheney told about A.Q. Khan

The GOP's "new ideas man"! Exactly WHO controls the "liberal media"? There's something funny going on in the NOT liberal media!

Why is the LIAR Newt Gingrich on TV all the time? What are the names of the people scheduling him to be on TV non-stop? Here's a guy who had his heyday in 1994, 15 years ago, and stunk up the joint with his "Contract ON America". He has no elected office, the Democrats control everything...AND ANBCBSNNX IS HAVING A NEWT-A-RAMA! There is so much proof that the media isn't "liberal media", this is another of the never ending examples. If corporate TV news is "liberal", why is it so different than Democracy NOW! and other REAL liberal media? If the media is "liberal", what are the names of the "liberals" who own and run it? Oh! No one can provide this non-existent information! Five corporations own and run 95% of the "liberal media" - CORPORATIONS AREN'T LIBERAL! WAKE UP! Newt Gingrich was OLD in 1994, now he's REALLY OLD, holds no elected office, and is the GOP's "change" and "new ideas"...the next president! What the hell is going on here???

Karen Hughes: top Bush propagandist and key pro-Iraq War propagandist. "PR"

Karen Hughes was closer to George Bush than anyone except Karl Rove - perhaps even closer. She was Bush's press pitbull during his six years as governor and during his Presidential campaign, then became "Counselor to the President." So this is a startling revelation. She acknowledged the current uproar over interrogation tactics and allegations of prisoner torture during the Bush years.

“I was very vocal in the internal debate,” she said. “I worried about how that would make us look in the eyes of the world. But I had left the White House when a lot of that was taking place.”

Ummmm...that just incriminated Cheney and the entire Bush administration, IDIOT! Thank you! So there was debate about the illegality of torture, huh? That's not what Cheney is saying on his "Cheney TV Tour"!

The Bilderberg Group meeting is an annual event where roughly 100 to 150 of the most powerful individuals from the world of business and politics formulate their agenda. This meeting has taken place since 1954 and has received very little corporate controlled media coverage despite its obvious importance.

Where is Donald Rumsfeld?

It's only getting uglier. The further we get from the Bush years, the more weird details trickle out. Robert Draper's new story on Donald Rumsfeld shows the former defense secretary in such a bad light that it almost reads like a parody.

Video 1 - CBS reports that Donald Rumsfeld announced that $2.3 TRILLION was missing from the Pentagon budget. That's big news in itself, but it's off the charts THAN HE ANNOUNCED IT ON 9/10/2001! The day before 9/11! So, it was totally wiped out of the news! What a coincidence! How many coincidences are you going to believe?

Big Dan's Big News May 17, 2009

TO paraphrase Al Pacino in “Godfather III,” just when we thought we were out, the Bush mob keeps pulling us back in. And will keep doing so. No matter how hard President Obama tries to turn the page on the previous administration, he can’t. Until there is true transparency and true accountability, revelations of that unresolved eight-year nightmare will keep raining down drip by drip, disrupting the new administration’s high ambitions.

NYTimes Frank Rich: Obama Can’t Turn the Page on Bush

Torture photos below (2003)...

These photos were taken using cameras owned by Cpl. Charles A. Graner Jr., Staff Sgt. Ivan Frederick II and Spc. Sabrina Harman. They depict a dead Iraqi detainee, Manadel al-Jamadi, whose body had been stored by CIA personnel overnight in a shower room at Abu Ghraib. Two of the photos show Graner and Harman posing with al-Jamadi's corpse.

Warning: Photos contain disturbing images of violence, abuse and humiliation.

● Torture doesn't work in providing information which will keep us safe
● Torture actually reduces our national security
● Most of those tortured were innocent
They were not tortured in order to prevent terrorist attacks, but to create a false justification for the war in Iraq (by creating a false linkage between Iraq and Al Qaeda)
● Attorney General Holder has admitted that torture is a crime, at least if it results in death. Many have been tortured to death.
● Worse was done at Guantanamo and at Bagram Air base.
● Torture has also been used throughout history as a form of intimidation, to terrorize people into obedience. However, it is not yet clear whether or not this was one of the reasons that the Bush administration implemented a policy of torture.

Everything you wanted to know about TORTURE

The Movie: "Taxi To The Dark Side", the story of the U.S torturing an innocent Iraqi taxi driver to death.

Not unlike a sudden appearance of stinkhorn burrowing out of loamy earth, revelations continue to blossom wildly that the US government now simply functions as a gateway to untold and undeserved riches for the well-connected. The latest rancid bud to emerge from the fertile soil of entrenched corruption comes from news that the FBI have been investigating two "enforcement" lawyers at the Securities and Exchange Commission.
