What say you, Truthseekers -- are certain members of Congress (including Dennis Kucinich) correct in their anger over President Obama's authorization of the attack on Libya without prior Congressional approval? And is this action any worse than Raisin Brain's use of trumped-up reports and unverified third-hand reports from "8 ball" (Curve Ball) about alleged WMD's and yellow cake uranium as justification to invade Iraq?

Seems that Obama is following in Bush's footsteps, all too ready to shrug his shoulders and shift the burden to the American people; to spill our blood and treasure in order to open another theater in the never-ending, unwinnable terror wars. Meet the new war, same as the old war. It's only 72-hours old and we're already suffering casualties.

So much is going on, it's dizzying. An analysis of Japan's nuclear crisis is a grim reminder of how close we are to a similar disaster in America. Democrats gain a strange ally in the Teabagger's war on Planned Parenthood as US Senator Scott Brown (Mass.) jumped ship and joined fellow Republican Senators Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Susan Collins (Maine) in supporting the program.

Minnesota wildman Gov. Tim Pawlenty throws his straight jacket, er, hat into the ring to become a GOP presidential contender in 2012. And today we get word that Senator Rand Paul, who's been in office barely three months, is sticking his toe in the presidential waters.

Protesters were arrested on both Saturday and Sunday, among them Daniel Elsberg, Mike Malloy, former Army Colonel Ann Wright, and many others. Many thanks to Tara of Republican Dirty Tricks for these videos, and for all she does! Visit her site to read more about the protests and to view speeches by Malloy, Elsberg, Ralph Nader and Chris Hedges.

Kathy never expected a career in radio as a talk show producer. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Kathy was completing her nursing degree when in 2001 - in an emergency - she was asked to fill in as the producer of Mike's program. Within a few (more...)
