Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Read more

As America's middle class battles for its survival on the Wisconsin barricades -- against various Koch Oil surrogates and the corporate toadies at Fox News -- fans of enlightenment, democracy and justice can take comfort from a significant victory north of Wisconsin border. Fox News will not be moving into Canada after all! The reason: Canada regulators announced last week they would reject efforts by Canada's right wing Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, to repeal a law that forbids lying on broadcast news.

Canada's Radio Act requires that "a licenser may not broadcast....any false or misleading news." The provision has kept Fox News and right wing talk radio out of Canada and helped make Canada a model for liberal democracy and freedom. As a result of that law, Canadians enjoy high quality news coverage including the kind of foreign affairs and investigative journalism that flourished in this country before Ronald Reagan abolished the "Fairness Doctrine" in 1987. Political dialogue in Canada is marked by civility, modesty, honesty, collegiality, and idealism that have pretty much disappeared on the U.S. airwaves. When Stephen Harper moved to abolish anti-lying provision of the Radio Act, Canadians rose up to oppose him fearing that their tradition of honest non partisan news would be replaced by the toxic, overtly partisan, biased and dishonest news coverage familiar to American citizens who listen to Fox News and talk radio. Harper's proposal was timed to facilitate the launch of a new right wing network, "Sun TV News" which Canadians call "Fox News North."

Harper, often referred to as "George W. Bush's Mini Me," is known for having mounted a Bush like war on government scientists, data collectors, transparency, and enlightenment in general. He is a wizard of all the familiar tools of demagoguery; false patriotism, bigotry, fear, selfishness and belligerent religiosity.

Harper's attempts to make lying legal on Canadian television is a stark admission that right wing political ideology can only dominate national debate through dishonest propaganda. Since corporate profit-taking is not an attractive vessel for populism, a political party or broadcast network that makes itself the tool of corporate and financial elites must lie to make its agenda popular with the public. In the Unites States, Fox News and talk radio, the sock puppets of billionaires and corporate robber barons have become the masters of propaganda and distortion on the public airwaves. Fox News's notoriously biased and dishonest coverage of the Wisconsin's protests is a prime example of the brand of news coverage Canada has smartly avoided.

And that explains Clinton gutting the CIA with his "human rights purge".
Hey, slow down, Mr. Dealing-Cards-From-the-Bottom- of-the-Deck.

You have a problem with the president removing the criminal element out of the CIA? These are not the kind of people who do us any good. They serve an agenda outside of what is in the nation's interest.

For example, when Director Allen Dulles overthrew the Guatamalan regime in 1954. The president, Jacob Arbenz, was considering not renewing the leases for property used by United Fruit. And take a wild guess who was a major stockholder in United Fruit. John Foster Dulles, Allen's brother.

The CIA was also behind the 34A operations which used unmarked U.S. aircraft and ships to attaack NVA targets. That triggered the Gulf of Tonkin Incident. Read it in "Pentagon Papers". Fletcher Prouty, a USAF specialist in black ops also mentions this in his book, "The Secret Team".

The CIA also carried out a secret war against Nicaragua without Congressional approval.(Iran-Contra)

If ever there was an agency in need of cleaning up, it's the CIA.
And getting rid of criminals who pull theses kinds of deeds had no effect on the activities of legitimate agents.

Sorry carol.

Former President Bill Clinton told an Orlando, Fla., audience that Mitt Romney’s vague economic plan is part of a scheme to get elected, then steal credit for a President Obama’s coming recovery.

Clinton cited recent reports that top economists and financial firms are predicting a strong boost to growth soon, likely matching Romney’s current pledge to create 12 million jobs over the next four years, whether or not he’s elected.

Fox Shows Why Other Media Outlets Aren't Following Its Lead On Libya Coverage

On Fox News Sunday, Brit Hume claimed that Fox News is doing "all the heavy lifting" on covering the September 11 attack in Benghazi and criticized other media outlets for supposedly failing to adequately cover the story. Yet during the same broadcast, Fox figures pushed multiple distortions about the Benghazi attack.

I agree that the Executive office should be held by a moderate. Romney has made both moderate and conservative pledges - which way is he going if he is elected? Nobody knows. Don't make promises that aren't yours to keep, carol.
Cutting deductions will result in a net increase in taxation for middle class families, while lowering tax rates will result in lower taxation for the wealthy - SIGNIFICANTLY lower, even including the elimination of deductions. As complex as the tax code is, that math is simple.
He is obviously a moderate conservative. That's good enough for anyone who isn't a far left liberal, isn't it?

Lowering capital gains taxes will increase jobs and spur the economy. More people working means more government revenues.

Closing loopholes also forces corporations to pay more which, in turn, increases government revenues.

Pretty sure that's basic macroeconomics 101.

LOL! Obama's "coming" recovery? Thought it was already in high gear?

One of Obama's biggest fears is the next president getting credit for something that started during his watch. Sort of immature, don'tcha think?

Mitt will team up with Newt to put budget balancing policies in effect - similar to Newt and Bubba.
