Controversial 'Piss Christ' Art Back In New York
Post Date: 2012-09-22 18:33:10 by Brian S
The controversial Piss Christ artwork Sen. Alfonse DAmato once branded as a deplorable, despicable display of vulgarity, is coming to New York, and security is being heavily ramped- up at the gallery that will show the piece. Andres Serranos work a photograph of the crucifix submerged in the artists urine first ignited controversy in 1989 when DAmato complained to the US Senate that it was an outrage, an indignity and a piece of trash that had been funded by taxpayers. Serrano had won a $15,000 prize for his work, backed in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. But the ...
Egypt: Death Penalty for Americans Who Blaspheme Mohammad! (And why the time for disengagement is now)
Post Date: 2012-09-22 14:05:16 by Capitalist Eric
What was the Obama administration saying about the Muslim Brotherhood being 'moderates' again? Egypt's general prosecutor issued arrest warrants Tuesday for seven Egyptian Coptic Christians and a Florida-based American pastor and referred them to trial on charges linked to an anti-Islam film that has sparked riots across the Muslim world.... The prosecutor's office said in a statement that the accused, which includes the film's alleged producer, face charges of harming national unity, insulting and publicly attacking Islam and spreading false information. The office said they could face the death penalty, if convicted. The time has come for us to leave Muslim ...
Truth is the Ultimate Gaffe
Post Date: 2012-09-22 13:41:39 by Capitalist Eric
Gaffe, a word that temporarily came to be associated with political misstatements, has returned to its origins as a social faux pas, such as saying something at a dinner party that everyone knows to be true, but that know mustn't be said out loud. The media is still doing its best to pretend that a gaffe is a mistake, when they are actually using it to mean the telling of inconvenient truths. Obama's reign of error is a constellation of inconvenient truths, economic, security and legal, that cannot be discussed in public. The telling of these inconvenient truths has been met with cries of racism, no matter how little they have to do with race. Now they are being met with cries of ...
Israel’s Shadow Hovers Over Anti-Islam Film
Post Date: 2012-09-21 17:42:43 by Brian S
Zionists and right-wing Christian evangelists are exploiting freedom of speech in the United States by fuelling sedition and hate between two great religions, Islam and Christianity. Simultaneously, right-wing religious elements are manipulating Muslim indignation so that lawful protests turn into demented violence. In the US, it is argued that inflammatory speech is protected under the First Amendment of the constitution, but there is considerable hypocrisy here. For example, I know of eight people who were unjustly dragged through Los Angeles federal courts for 15 years, accused of distributing less than 50 copies of a news magazine. Nakoula, a bankrupt felon who spent 21 months in jail ...
Making Sense Out of the Great Unraveling
Post Date: 2012-09-20 14:09:24 by Capitalist Eric
In 1999, I began to form a picture in my mind of what I termed "The Great Unraveling" - a period in which the economies of the First World would collapse. I believed that it would not all happen with one great crash, but would occur in fits and starts, with the relevant governments artificially propping up their economies as events unfolded, with a series of band-aid solutions that would delay the inevitable, but ultimately, would worsen the outcome considerably. Hence the choice of the word, "unraveling." I projected that the first major event in this debacle would be the breaking of the real estate bubble in the US, which I expected to happen in 2006. I was wrong. It ...

Rush Limbaugh Predicts ‘End Of Republican Party’ If Obama Wins Re-Election, "“There’s going to be a third party that’s going to be orientated "...
Post Date: 2012-09-11 00:35:19 by Brian S
On his syndicated radio show Monday afternoon, conservative host Rush Limbaugh predicted that if President Barack Obama wins re-election, it will mean an end to the Republican Party and the triggering of economic collapse within 18 months. How long does this country have if Obama wins? Limbaugh asked. Were headed toward an economic collapse and we are the leader of the world. And when it happens to us, there are reverberations all over the world [...] How long is it going to take? Im asking a serious question. 18 months? You throw ObamaCare onto what we know what we are going to get from Obama more debt, more spending, the expansion of the welfare state. ...

Flash Back: Howdy All
Post Date: 2012-09-02 14:29:33 by A K A Stone
Howdy Libery Post, Just a small intro about myself. First and foremost, I'm a news "junkie". Good or bad, if its "breaking" news and I'm reading it...I post it. I choose my issues to support, one at a time. Libertarian/conservative will be my main leanings with an exception now and then. I'm not a big "chatter". I read, listen and observe so getting into wordy exchanges is not my thing (unless of course...the "brew" is good). I was tossed from TOS just a couple of days ago because they couldn't handle the news, both good or bad. Kool-aid sipping isn't my game, besides...all that sugar will make your teeth rot.

BLOOMBERG: Ronald Reagan Is A 'Socialist!'
Post Date: 2012-08-27 23:47:57 by Brian S
Taking a page out of Newsweek's playbook, Bloomberg Insider went with a bold cover for Tuesday's edition of its daily magazine that it's distributing throughout the conventions: Courtesy of Bloomberg Insider The argument of the accompanying story, which will undoubtedly be a topic of conversation Tuesday at the Republican National Convention, is not that Reagan is actually a socialist. That term is used in a hyperbolic fashion, in a nod to the regular charges from Republicans that President Obama is a "socialist." The argument of Michael Tackett's piece is that under today's Republican Party, Reagan would be considered too moderate for ...
Ron Paul Declines A Speaking Spot At GOP Convention After Romney Demands To Review Remarks, Rand Paul’s Speech Has Not Yet Been Rescheduled
Post Date: 2012-08-26 19:16:36 by Brian S
The libertarian Republican presidential candidate says hes declined an opportunity to speak at the Republican National Convention in Tampa because Mitt Romneys campaign imposed two conditions on any Paul speech that it be reviewed by the nominee-to-bes team and that it include an endorsement without hesitation or reservation. It wouldnt be my speech, the Texas congressman told the New York Times. That would undo everything Ive done in the last 30 years. I dont fully endorse him for president. Pundits noted that the uncompromising attitude that has won Paul a national following also limits his clout within the GOP. ...
Revisionist Christian Historian David Barton's Book Yanked For Inaccuracies. Will He Still Choose Texas' Social Studies Textbooks?
Post Date: 2012-08-10 14:26:01 by Brian S
NPR ran a story on Wednesday about David Barton, the Aledo-based pseudo-historian who has built a career arguing that America was established on Christian principles. It found that his claims aren't particularly hard to debunk. For one, Barton has only a bachelor's in Christian education from Oral Roberts University, with no formal training as a historian. And all those parts of the Constitution he said were taken directly from the Bible, verbatim? They weren't. Still, Barton has remained a favorite of the far right. Mike Huckabee, for example, suggested that America would be a better place if everyone was forced, at gunpoint, to listen to Barton. Nor have his well-documented ...
Shep Smith Makes Apparent Slam Of Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day As ‘National Day Of Intolerance’

As one of the main charms of Fox News Studio B With Shepard Smith is that anything can happen, and it usually does. For example, as Smith was tossing to commercial Wednesday afternoon, he took what seemed like a hard shot at former Arkansas Governor and Fox stablemate Mike Huckabees Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day, invented to celebrate that restaurant chains opposition to marriage equality. Delivering one of those banal date-related factoids that news shows throw out there every so often, Smith said Its National Badminton Day, then added forget National Day of Intolerance, lets just stay with badminton. Smith has previously ...
GOP Rep. Steve King Defends The Right To Watch Dog Fighting
Post Date: 2012-08-01 11:18:40 by Brian S
Iowa Rep. Steve King (R) is standing up for the rights of Americans who want to see dogs and others animals pitted against one another in fights that often result in the animals deaths. During a tele-townhall event last week, King complained about an amendment to the farm bill that would criminalize attending organized animal fights and would impose additional penalties on people who bring children to the events. When the legislation that passed in the farm bill that says that its a federal crime to watch animals fight or to induce someone else to watch an animal fight but its not a federal crime to induce somebody to watch people fighting, theres something ...
Are Climate Skeptics More Likely To Be Conspiracy Theorists?
Post Date: 2012-07-29 12:58:29 by Brian S
Its time to come clean: climate change is a hoax. And the moon landings were faked, 9/11 was an inside job, and the CIA is hiding the identity of the gunman on the grassy knoll. It might seem odd to lump climate change a scientific theory supported by thousands of peer-reviewed papers and hundreds of independent lines of evidence with conspiracy theories like these. But new research to be published in a forthcoming issue of Psychological Science has found a link between the endorsement of conspiracy theories and the rejection of established facts about climate science. In a survey of more than 1,000 readers of websites related to climate change, people who agreed with ...
Cheney: It Was A ‘Mistake’ To Pick Palin For VP
Post Date: 2012-07-29 12:57:25 by Brian S
Former Vice President Dick Cheney is warning presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to choose his vice presidential nominee wisely because Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) made a mistake by picking former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R). During an interview clip that aired on Sunday, ABCs Jonathan Karl asked Cheney, who reportedly selected himself to be on the Republican ticket with George W. Bush, how important it was for Romney to handle his VP pick differently from McCain. Pretty important, Cheney insisted. That one, I dont think was well handled.
And the test to get on that small list has to be, is this person capable of being ...

Tea Party Congressman Calls McCain ‘Numb Nuts’ For Criticizing Bachmann’s Anti-Muslim Witch Hunt
Post Date: 2012-07-26 20:13:53 by Brian S
Tea Party Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) lashed out at Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) for criticizing him and his fellow conservative members for suggesting that a senior aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood. Gohmert is part of a small group of five Republican members, led by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), who are demanding an investigation into whether Clinton deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin is connected to the group. Normally you dont go blast somebody on the floor who is a colleague on the same side of the aisle unless you touch base with them, Gohmert complained during an appearance on the Dennis Miller Show on Tuesday, ...
Report Cited By Bachmann Claims Norquist Linked To Muslim Brotherhood
Post Date: 2012-07-23 11:59:36 by Brian S
Anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist helped the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrate the U.S. government, according to the report that Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) cited in an attack on top State Department aide Human Abedin. Earlier this month, Bachmann and four other Republicans sent a letter to inspectors general in the State, Homeland Security, Defense and Justice departments calling on them to investigate potential Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the Obama administration by Abedin, an aide to Secretary Clinton and wife of former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY). As evidence of their claims, the five Republicans cited The Muslim Brotherhood in America: The Enemy Within, a ...

Within hours of the tragic shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado last night, politicians and others rushed to stake out the tragedy as their own. Some pointed to the senseless murders as proof of their beliefs, while others have used it as an opportunity to gather donations and expand their mailing lists. Others have simply been unable to resist the powerful urge to rush to their computers or smart phones and say, I told you so! as loudly as they can. Heres Raw Storys round-up of the five worst opportunistic offenders at just barely twelve hours or so since James Holmes reportedly fired his first shot. 5.

Prosecution May Use Zimmerman's Hannity Interview as Evidence...
Post Date: 2012-07-20 12:01:10 by Brian S
George Zimmerman's television interview in which he said he had few regrets about the night he killed teenager Trayvon Martin has been entered as possible evidence in his upcoming murder trial. In a wide ranging interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity Zimmerman, appearing articulate and calm, said he neither regretted carrying a gun that night nor pursuing the 17-year-old Martin. "I feel that it was all God's plan," he told Hannity. When asked if there was "anything you might do differently," Zimmerman responded, "No Sir." This morning the prosecution entered the tape of the interview into discovery as and could attempt to admit it as evidence in ...
