Obama Creates Fake Investigation Into NSA Military Spying Against Americans

President Obama has purposefully designed an investigation to provide a report, written by the fox, sent to the fox, about how the fox has been raiding the henhouse. […]

Exposed: Military NSA violated its own lax surveillance rules — and covered it up

After yesterday’s revelations, did you think the news about warrantless spying on Americans couldn’t possibly get worse?

Well, you’re wrong. Today, there are more revelations about the spying program of the NSA, a branch of the U.S. military. These revelations are even worse than what came before.

What you read below takes for granted […]

Americans Elect Doubles Down on Fib about Platform of Questions in August 2012 Report

As I read through and scan in a paper copy of the Americans Elect Mission Report, I’m tickled by the story Americans Elect is telling about itself, tickled by the inability of Americans Elect staffers to tell a story straight. Even in a document sent only to Americans Elect insiders and boosters, the privatized-presidential-election corporation […]

Americans Elect Spokesperson Acknowledges Big Lie: Delegate Count inflated by at least 400%

In the all-online corporate privatized presidential nomination effort called Americans Elect, there are different levels of participation:

1. Facebook Fan: someone who “likes” Americans Elect on Facebook. As of this morning, 466,625 people have “liked” Americans Elect on Facebook.

Lying is a Sin: Steve Stivers tells no-doubt falsehood about Mary Jo Kilroy

Republican congressional candidate Steve Stivers signed his name to a campaign advertisement this week, declaring of his opponent in Ohio’s 15th District that “Mary Jo Kilroy can’t hide from her 98.4% voting record with Nancy Pelosi.”

I’ll come right to the point. This claim by Steve Stivers is a lie.

A review of roll […]

Bearing False Witness: Tim Wildmon’s Lie About Barack Obama

I just received a letter in the mail from Tim Wildmon, President of the American Family Association. I get a little cheer in my heart when such letters come. For one thing, I know that the fundamentalist and theocratic AFA just frittered away a little bit of its budget on printing and mailing costs. For […]

Another Month Gone Without Any Investigation of FBI Lawbreaking

This January, the FBI finally acknowledged that for years, it spied on Americans’ telephone calls without judicial warrants. The bureau gained access to the phone calls of everyday Americans, journalists and entire American news bureaus by claiming the existence of emergencies, telling stories about impending terrorist attacks that were completely false. These aren’t just violations […]

Free Speech Joe Wilson Opposes Free Speech

In response to Rep. Joe Wilson‘s shout of “You Lie!” to President Barack Obama during his health care reform speech last night, right-wing Americans have come out of the woodwork to defend Wilson’s right to free speech:

Pat:

Actually, I applaud Joe! We still have FREE SPEECH in this country

Say Anything:

Now we can […]
