The Pope Criminalizes Leaks. Because leaking about criminality at the Vatican Bank or, say, pedophile priests is worse than stealing money and molesting kids? Or maybe he had a chat with Pres. Obama? I mean, Obama has gone after more whistleblowers (not leakers) than all presidents before him. Change we can believe in, my ass.
Bug found at Ecuador's embassy in London. The subhead reads: A hidden microphone is found in the ambassador's office, during routine security search, Ecuador foreign minister says. At one time the U.S. was envied and admired, now we are the world's monster. Thanks, Obama! I mean, Reagan, Poppy Bush, Clinton, Cheney, and W all played their part, but you took the ball and dunked it. Change you can believe in...that was a stroke of [mendacious] brillance.
More Americans see man who leaked NSA secrets as 'patriot' than traitor. Obama has a problem. Good, he earned it. I bet I'm not the only person on the left who wouldn't care if the republicans wanted to impeach him over this. Hell, I'd support it. But they won't, because they want that power when the next republican is in the White House, which, after all of the damage Obama has done to the democratic brand, will be in 2016. Unless...?
[Obama] Throwing Money at [Retrofitting] Nukes. I thought the Nobel committee gave Obama the peace prize because he claimed to care about reducing the nuclear threat in the world. Or maybe it's just my memory? No, my memory is fine: Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 awarded to President Barack Obama "for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. The Committee has attached special importance to Obama's vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons." Looks like quite a few someones have egg on their face.
Pope Benedict the Whateverthe fuck announces resignation. Resigning? Not generally done with the Vatican. Sure, maybe a few suspected murders, other intrigue, but resigning, not really the way a pope likes to bow out. I'm sure his decision--if it is his--has nothing to do with the continuing pedophilia cases--the church doesn't give a shit about that, assume they can ride that out (I mean, people still get their kids baptized). But there is an ongoing financial scandal. Money talks....and sometimes screams. Just saying.
Afghan suicide bomber kills anti-terror chief. I recall seeing the same headline a few months back. Apparently the Afghan anti-terror chief du jour is the twin of Al Qaeda's number two. You know, the guy who gets killed by the U.S. military every four months or so.
And why are we there again? I recall hearing about a pipeline that was supposed to go from Whereverthefuckistan through Lawlessratholeistan and deliver some fossil fuel to an awaiting tanker, but surely our media would tell us whether "Operation Destroy the Earth so a Handful of Fuckers Can Own Everything for Five Minutes" was on track. Let me check Yahoo's! front page. Hmmm, Italian tourist arrested for forgetting wallet at NYC steakhouse, ideal time to book flights, Lindsay Lohan says "no" to Dancing With the Stars....
Oh, this is going to be an interesting story. The child abuse scandal involving various media/entertainment personalities is already exploding, so the participants in the secret gay sex not involving kids may skate by when they are finally revealed (assuming the participants weren't the fire breathing "gays are destroying" Britain types). That said, I don't think the National Front members are going to be too happy.
One last point: the MP who kept up pressure on the police to investigate what he said was "was 'clear intelligence' of an abuse network of powerful men with influence at the highest level – in Parliament and even in Downing Street," is Tom Watson, who also has played a very influential role in the ongoing cell phone--and computer--hacking scandal involving that monster, Rupert Murdoch, his filthy family, and his contemptible newspaper and other media assets. Why isn't he being considered for leadership in the Labour Party instead of that milquetoast, centrist, "New Labour" whore Ed Miliband? Oh, right. Never mind.
Monster in the white house wants you to live like a pauper in your old age. And why not? He'll never have to rely on social security, and neither will his kids. Oh, and according to the comments, that old multi-millionairess Nancy Pelosi is cool with it. And why not, she'll never have to rely on social security, etc. You know what? Next time I may not even vote. Someone tell me why I should bother. No, really.
