Best comment at 3:06……then again at 8:12. A strong economy, seriously? I bet 97% of economists might disagree with that.

And people wonder why some don’t blindly accept the “official stories” that come out of DC.



  1. Laura in BC says:

    Beam me up Scotty – there is no intelligent life here.
    Yet these people in charge sure know how to throw other peoples’ money around and live the high life – golf courses, trips to China with relatives and dogs, Marthas Vineyards, Hawaii on the corporate jet et al.

    Susan Rice has nothing on Pinocchio when it comes to telling tales.
    If not for affirmative action polices she would be selling Time Shares in Puerto Morelos

    • Tim says:

      “”…she would be selling Time Shares in Puerto Morelos

      Not unless she starts to ‘put out’ and i’m not really seeing any takers in this particular watering hole…

  2. Captain Obvious says:

    So these criminals will break their own oaths to save a deserter, but wouldn’t do the same for law-abiding citizens captured by militants?

    Throw the entirety of D.C. into Gitmo, then blast it. Just more evidence that criminal action is the new norm in government.

    • DonW says:

      That’s probably why they want to close Gitmo, they are afraid they could become residents in a future administration.

  3. bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist and junior culture critic says:

    At 3:06 Rice says the guy was a POW and USA has a “sacred duty” to get him back.

    At 8:12 she says the USA is Biggest Asshole on the Planet.

    While any statement is subject to quibbling, aren’t both of these basically accurate…. and even moreso in the context of a gubment wanting to work its military will on the rest of the world?

    Are your time points off, or did you post the wrong clip?

      “US Knew Bowe Bergdahl Had Deserted, Investigated Him”

      http://dailycaller.com/2014/06/02/us-knew-bowe-bergdahl-had-deserted-investigated-him/#ixzz33hvXSpoC

      • bobbo, got my stars and stripes undies on right now says:

        Well, I’ve heard that “it is impossible” to come to a finding of desertion without interviewing the escapee. That makes sense to me.

        In the main….. the purpose in expending time, attention, resources, gasoline, chocolate bars, men, money, print, and bug spray for the rose garden has ZERO to do with the pows in prison, and EVERYTHING to do with the grunts in the field.

        Got to keep the team cohesive and on point.

        Know what I mean?

        • You say Potaatoe says:

          “Well, I’ve heard that ‘it is impossible’ to come to a finding of desertion without interviewing the escapee. That makes sense to me.”

          I believe the reference “to come to a finding of desertion without interviewing…” should be “to come to a finding of TRAITOR without interviewing the escapee.”

          That makes sense to me.

          • bobbo, we think with words, and flower with ideas says:

            Doesn’t traitor mean to work actively against the interests of the USA while deserter just means you believed the recruiter?

            What difference do you think there is since neither can be “legally” established without interviewing the perp?

            Actually, again, traitors is a civilian offense that can be done without the perp while deserter is a military proceeding according to their rules????? I don’t know, just guessing.

            But I’ll go with the majority on this.

            Deserter: not worth the time and trouble to warehouse him.

            Traitor: shoot him twice.

          • McCullough says:

            “Doesn’t traitor mean to work actively against the interests of the USA while deserter just means you believed the recruiter?”

            Describes at least the present and former POTUS.

            “Deserter: not worth the time and trouble to warehouse him.

            Traitor: shoot him twice.”

    • Tim says:

      I *think* the issue @3:06 is the term *prisoner of war*. I’m unclear on whether he was ever given that designation.

      “”The future is too good to waste on lies. And life is way too short to care for the damnation of others, as well as to spend it helping fools with their ideas that are wrong. I have seen their ideas and I am ashamed to even be american. The horror of the self-righteous arrogance that they thrive in. It is all revolting.

      It sounds like the guy had a conscience. Soldiers with consciences are being weeded out — can’t have a compassionate, thinking killing machines coming home to be LEO.

            Fuck. And the audience wondered how Rainman just wrote itself…

            Well, if we’re talking about the same refrigerator then my diagnosis is still as presented — the coolant pressure is low so that its’ phase transition occurs below freezing where it depends on circulating air to cool the lettuce crisper.

            If it is a different one, then it was probably transported on its’ side. It is called *the kiss of death* {oil rectifier} if you run the fridge in such a state within anything less than 48 hours after transportation — the coolant and oil is now a froth of foam and it will never separate.

            The freezer does not matter as it does not depend on a flow of air — does the freezer freeze???

            You probably have one evaporator coil for freeze and fridge so

            “”Sometimes (but fairly rarely) both heater and cooling system can be energized by the timer at the same time. This can result in thawing then refreezing of food in the freezer compartment often leading to freezer burn on that food.

            “”If the evaporator coil is only partially frosting (see illustration above) or a ball of ice develops on just a small area of it (see illustration below), it is usually a sign of a refrigeration system problem in which case a trained refrigeration technician named Ben Dover will be required to determine the cause and correct it.

    At the 8:12 mark, Susan Rice is responding to Senator Ted Cruz’s remarks that the current administration is far too appeasing to terrorists groups which in turn makes the U.S. look weak. Again, NOT ABOUT ECONOMICS!!!

    So when you say that reality has no place in Washington, I have to wonder just where YOU ARE when you say that. And the comment, A strong economy, seriously? I bet 97% of economists might disagree with that. does seem to be coming from some sort of wacko left field.

    We Are The Terrorists
    Truth Hurts, Lies Kill. Reality behind the Phony Wars

    By Dr. Dahlia Wasfi

    We have an obligation to every last victim of this illegal aggression because all of this carnage has been done in our name. Since World War II, 90% of the casualties of war are unarmed civilians. 1/3 of them children. Our victims have done nothing to us. From Palestine to Afghanistan to Iraq to Somalia to wherever our next target may be, their murders are not collateral damage, they are the nature of modern warfare. They don’t hate us because of our freedoms. They hate us because every day we are funding and committing crimes against humanity. The so-called “war on terror” is a cover for our military aggression to gain control of the resources of western Asia.

    This is sending the poor of this country to kill the poor of those Muslim countries. This is trading blood for oil. This is genocide, and to most of the world, we are the terrorists. In these times, remaining silent on our responsibility to the world and its future is criminal. And in light of our complicity in the supreme crimes against humanity in Iraq and Afghanistan, and ongoing violations of the U.N. Charter in International Law, how dare any American criticize the actions of legitimate resistance to illegal occupation.

    Our so-called enemies in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, our other colonies around the world, and our inner cities here at home, are struggling against the oppressive hand of empire, demanding respect for their humanity. They are labeled insurgents or terrorists for resisting rape and pillage by the white establishment, but they are our brothers and sisters in the struggle for justice. The civilians at the other end of our weapons don’t have a choice, but American soldiers have choices, and while there may have been some doubt 5 years ago, today we know the truth. Our soldiers don’t sacrifice for duty-honor-country, they sacrifice for Kellogg Brown & Root.

    They don’t fight for America, they fight for their lives and their buddies beside them, because we put them in a war zone. They’re not defending our freedoms, they’re laying the foundation for 14 permanent military bases to defend the freedoms of Exxon Mobil and British Petroleum.

    They’re not establishing democracy, they’re establishing the basis for an economic occupation to continue after the military occupation has ended. Iraqi society today, thanks to American “help” is defined by house raids, death squads, check-points, detentions, curfews, blood in the streets, and constant violence. We must dare to speak out in support of the Iraqi people, who resist and endure the horrific existence we brought upon them through our bloodthirsty imperial crusade. We must dare to speak out in support of those American war-resisters, the real military heroes, who uphold their oath to defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, including those terrorist cells in Washington DC more commonly known as the Legislative, Executive & Judicial branches.

    “If There Is No Struggle, There Is No Progress”

    Frederick Douglass said

    “Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet deprecate agitation, are people who want crops without ploughing the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both … but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.”

    Every one of us, every one of us must keep demanding, keep fighting, keep thundering, keep plowing, keep speaking, keep struggling until justice is served. NO justice, NO peace.

    Hey Alfie–I apologize for not responding to you above re how bad Obama has been for USA. You are on point and actually rational and I lost the opportunity to respond timely…. such be the structure at DU.

    You make two main points:

    1.Bobbo, perhaps the best proof Obama is all about weakening America, till she’s a super power no more, is his budget. He is trying to spend the country into economic collapse. /// You don’t want to hear it but this is almost ALL a result of BUSHtheRETARD starting wars of choice for the wrong reasons in the wrong places WHILE giving the RICH tax breaks they don’t need.

    Most economists say the stimulus spending should have been MORE and better targeted to actual job creation but we have the system we have. Both parties bought and sold to the RICH with the Dumbo’s at the margin trying to keep the middle class in existence while the Pukes making no apology at all for gutting them.

    The short of it all: Obama is underspending and under taxing compared to the Historical Record. Course, he is also mismanaging as much as any other Presnedent so really….. its all just bidness as usual as America slowly spirals down the drain. Just as the RICH want. Keep us poor folk arguing polytics while they run off with the Bank. Ashes in their mouth when they recognize that come the Apocalypse (AGW!!) their money won’t be good for anything. Given our digital age, can’t even burn it.

    Gotta love sheep whose knowledge of economic resides on YouTube. If you read, try this: http://tinyurl.com/lnccbsy – a recent article in (gasp) THE ECONOMIST, a conservative publication. It propounds that the growing, strong and optimistic US economy endangers other Western economies which might presume to have the same potential.

    BTW, total employment numbers on Friday matched the peak before the Great Recession. Of course, there’s much to criticize. I think I’ll stick to reading someone who knows what they’re talking about to develop an informed criticism, though.

    BLS shows 4.1 million jobs advertised nationwide, right now. Yup, Obama/Federal Reserve/Keynesian economics failed again.
