1 Million Strong in the Professional Left

1 Million Strong in the Professional Left --Obama has out-Bushed Bush! 13 Aug 2010 This is a group established to oppose Robert Gibbs's use of the term "professional left," which is meant to suggest those who oppose Obama's corporatist, imperialist agenda are part of a narrow, special interest group with peculiar interests. No matter that Obama opposes the interests of the vast majority, whose interests are represented in the "left" opposition to Obama. But none of the real "left" can be seen or heard on TV. WE are the professional left, and we profess it boldly. --MDR

U.S. bailouts benefited foreign firms, report says

U.S. bailouts benefited foreign firms, report says 12 Aug 2010 The federal government's effort to stabilize the financial system turn over the US Treasury to Bush's corporaterrorist cronies in 2008 by flooding money into as many banks as possible resulted in a boon to many foreign firms and left the United States shouldering far more risk than governments that took a narrower approach, according to a new report by a panel overseeing the Treasury's $700 billion bailout fund. Members of the Congressional Oversight Panel, in a report due Thursday, note that America's broad financial rescues had more impact internationally than the narrower bailout programs of other countries had on U.S. firms.

New Hampshire Lawmaker Resigns After "Dead Palin" Comment

New Hampshire Lawmaker Resigns After "Dead Palin" Comment 12 Aug 2010 A Democratic New Hampshire state lawmaker has resigned after speculating on Facebook about Sarah Palin's death. A second New Hampshire Democrat, an activist running for the state legislature, is apologizing for the same gaffe. Responding to a thread on Facebook, New Hampshire State Rep.

Today, Horrigan posted on his website a resignation letter to the New Hampshire House speaker. [Democrats don't want Sarah Palin dead. She's their greatest asset! Without the Sarah Palin, how could they threaten their disaffected voters so that they stay in line and vote for the party? After all, what do they have to offer other than that they're not the Republicans (in name, at least)? These Republican bogeys are the Democrats' best friends. --Michael Rectenwald]

Judge says gay marriages can start in Calif.; gives opponents time to appeal Prop 8 ruling 12 Aug 2010 A San Francisco federal judge today ruled that same-sex marriages should resume immediately in California, but put his decision on hold to give an appeals court an opportunity to consider whether to allow the marriage licenses to be issued while the legal challenge to the state's gay marriage ban proceeds. Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker, who a week ago struck down Proposition 8 as unconstitutional, found there is no longer reason to bar same-sex couples from the equal right to wed, particularly in view of the fact that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Attorney General Jerry Brown -- the state's top officials -- agree that the marriages should be legal right away.

Iran digging graves for U.S. troops if they attack

Iran digging graves for U.S. troops if they attack 11 Aug 2010 Iran has dug mass graves in which to bury U.S. troops in case of any American attack on the country, a former commander of the elite Revolutionary Guard said. The digging of the graves appears to be a show of bravado after the chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen, said last week that the U.S. military has a contingency plan to attack Iran, although he thinks a military strike is probably a bad idea. Footage obtained by APTN showed a large number of empty, freshly dug graves in a desert region of Khuzestan. The digging of the graves was first reported earlier this week by Iran's semiofficial news agency Fars.

'Israel set to hit Iran's N-sites within a year'

'Israel set to hit Iran's N-sites within a year' 12 Aug 2010 Israel may launch a unilateral attack on Iranian nuclear facilities within a year if the Obama administration fails to assure Tel Aviv that it is serious about foiling Tehran's atomic ambitions, a media report said.
