Collins: Of all the affronts and stress you've experienced in this open ended prosecution, what's been the most offensive element? Lindauer: "I am furious about the abuse that I have suffered. I regard this as a Soviet-style attack on my rights to dissent from the government. Snip Go to trial or drop the charges, which are ridiculous anyway. They don't have a case, and they know it."

There's one major obstacle blocking a theft of the 2008 presidential election. It's highly significant and challenges even the most devious minds.

Not only isn't it okay to prosecute him, it isn't even okay to talk about prosecuting him. This is unbelievable what's going on in this country."

Did you know Bush won 2004 in the big cities? Did you know he had an 80% increase white voters in big cities in 2004? It's no surprise he "lost" votes in New York City. As Mayor Bloomberg said on Feb. 20, 2008, "If you want to call it significant undercounting, I guess that's a euphemism for fraud."
That lesson may have inspired the current politics of don't ask, don't tell. Don't ask too often about the distorted national priorities and don't tell the people what they already know; that the distribution of wealth has captured the vast majority in a never ending game of catch up that cannot be won under the current political and economic system.

(Wash. DC) Well, they finally did it. The Money Party exposed the nauseating underbelly of first world finance. It's a cross between a Ponzi scheme and a complex math puzzle, all geared to let those in charge rake off as much money as they can, whenever they can, while they leave us out in the cold. Unfortunately, this time their greed and lack of control has the world poised for a systemic economic meltdown.

He's a frightened victim of his own weakness and fearful that his massive crimes are obvious. Series: Murdoch press scandals (18 Articles, 37628 views)
Yesterday, the House Committee on Homeland Security issued a response to critics of H.R. 1955 - the "Violent Radicalization" bill designed to censor the Internet.

The big banks wrote notes and invented their own law to make it more profitable. Now years later, they find that these notes are worth nothing except the paper they're written on. This is a huge risk to everyone's property values and to the quality of life of almost every citizen. Thanks for nothing Congress, regulators, executive branch.
Speculation reigns supreme in your nation's capitol. Who is next in line after the bin Laden operation? The bipartisan coalition directing the war on terror forgot one important fact about the security of the United States of America.

A senior Dutch prosecutor on the MH17 case told Der Spiegel that instigators were open to the theory that Malaysian flight MH17 was shot down by "another plane."

A government gains legitimacy through the ascent to shared rules and laws by the vast majority of citizens.
