For starters, I am not the Henry Porter who writes for the Observer in Britain. I'm a native New Yorker living in Maryland. I used to believe knowledge was power. Now I know knowledge translated into action is power.

MasterCard and Visa cut off Wikileaks, but the KKK is still OK! Want to support the KKK? MasterCard and Visa are only too happy to help. Want to support Wikileaks? You're on your own. I guess some purists are better than others, eh?

Call me crazy, but I like to know who is screwing me. What about you? 4 companies hold 80% of the cash held by ALL 50 of the largest corporations in America. These companies have money to burn, and we're the ones getting burned.

Now we have to worry about TSA perverts and pedophiles? Groping women's breasts and pawing guys groins is bad enough. But molesting children in the name of safety can mean only one thing. The terrorists have won.

Bush Book Tour is Great News... For Kissinger! It is impossible to imagine a more striking example of a sociopath dropping his "Mask of Sanity" than this book tour and that interview. Who in their right mind brags about committing war crimes -- when no one is asking you about them?

40 years later, and Daniel Ellsberg still scares the hell out of me. Daniel Ellsberg appeared at the Wikileaks press conference to give his support. He also issued a dire warning that most of the media has ignored. Ellsberg may not be "The Most Dangerous Man in America" anymore, but that's only because there are people working overtime in Washington to claim that title.

Wikileaks documents confirm Tom Fox died for our sins The Wikileaks documents confirm the claims of death squad activities made in 2005. Those claims prompted Tom Fox and others to go to Iraq and investigate. The Wikileaks documents confirms what I've long suspected: Tom Fox, Steve Vincent, Yasser Salihee, Fakher Haider, and Ted Westhusing died for our sins.

John Tyler: Smacking Down Fools and Teabaggers, Too! Teabaggers say the damndest things. They also think repeating them makes them true. I love it when they make the argument from ignorance. It is invariably as easy to crush as a grape. Enjoy.

Newsflash: New Yorkers don't care what out-of-town bedwetters think. I'm sick and tired of half-assed quitters like Sarah Palin (half-term governor), Newt Gingrich (dumped his cancer-stricken wife), Glenn Beck (didn't last a semester in college) and idiot teabaggers (can't even finish a thought) getting all worked up about stuff happening in a city they are afraid to drive in.

Ricky Martin's Lyrical Act of Courage Ricky Martin's decision to leave behind la vida mentirosa was more than an act of personal courage. It was a gift to millions of kids struggling to find the courage they need to step out into the light.

The US sends Israel a clear signal: Don't assume. For decades, Israel could count on the US to veto any Security Council resolution aimed at Israeli policy. That may come to an end in a very public and humiliating way for Israel when the US steps back and effectively tells Israel, "You're On Your Own" when it comes to illegal settlements.

ACTION ITEM: Help push HR 4789 (Public Option Act) to the floor for a vote. Alan Grayson has just proposed legislation that would cut through all the nonsense and noise surrounding the health care "debate" and deliver a real public option. However, HR 4789 will not see the light of day unless it is voted out of the Ways and Means Committee. That's where you come in.

Rahm Emanuel's Excellent Hatchet Job -- on Obama. If you're hired to be the president's point man, you shouldn't be helping the opposition throw his agenda under the bus.

Poem: A Thousand Nightmares and Still No Name One thousand dead soldiers and not a single flag was lowered. That's worse than criminal. It's shameful.

Questions people prefer not to ask Why, in a country swimming with opium, are suicidal women setting themselves on fire? You're kidding yourself if you think we don't own a piece of that.

If Obama wants to act like Lincoln, he has to act now. If the president wants to change the arc of history, he needs to act before he is history.

I never expected a pony, but this is ridiculous. When the Senate Majority Leader can boldly claim "I don't work for the president" a week before the guy even takes office, don't point at progressives and say we're undercutting Obama's agenda.
