A Ku Klux Klan leader named Edward, who goes by the title “KKK Exalted Cyclops,” is promising the “largest” rally in Memphis history after the city decided to remove Confederate names from three parks.

In an 9-0 vote on Tuesday night, the Memphis City Council approved temporary names for three Confederate-themed parks. Forest Park will become “Health Sciences Park,” Confederate Park will be called “Memphis Park” and Jefferson Davis Park will get the name “Mississippi River Park.”

You’re going to see the largest rally Memphis, Tennessee has ever seen,” he promised.“It’s not going to be 20 or 30, it’s going to be thousands of Klansmen from the whole United States coming to Memphis, Tennessee.”

After outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta testified before Congress on the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, The Weekly Standard selectively cropped a portion of his testimony and blogged that Panetta found Obama to be "absent" the night of the assault. The Weekly Standard's attack on Obama subsequently made the conservative media rounds to Fox Nation, The Drudge Report, The Daily Caller, Breitbart.com , and Fox News.

Testimony yesterday by Leon Panetta, at least to the part about being absent.
Yeah I threw that second part in there to stir up the sheep. Panetta's testimony is very damning to both Clinton and Obama.

Would the rightwingers like anyone that President Obama picked? He'll be confirmed. I like him.
Speaking Arabic is a big asset, for anyone in the CIA, FBI, etc.
Meanwhile the lapd shot 2 women in a pickup truck yesterday, mistaking them for Dorner.
One of the women is still in intensive care. Neither will need to deliver newspapers any more after the taxpayers come up with a big settlement.

The cops also shot up every car in the neighborhood.

I think I should've chosen the word, counter-intuitive back there... Yes.. yes, I'm sure of it. Take No Gun Ri for instance. I can't see how machine-gunning women and children under a bridge could be construed by any reasonable person as being "a lawful order?" And yet not one of our brave fighting men chose to disobey the order... for three days. Perhaps the desire to ignore unlawful orders is superseded by the desire not to get shot by the idiots who told you to shoot all the women and children laying prone under a railroad bridge in the first place?

Nothing Obama has done or will ever do will be as damning as Bush sitting there reading My Pet Goat, unable to move.

Yesterday’s testimony on Benghazi by Panetta made it clear that the President/Hillary were both AWOL but also explains why WH couldn’t produce a Photo of the President in the ‘War Room’ he wasn’t There!!

The post you replied to is ancient, but Obamacare costs will still result in massive tax increases and explode the national debt.

If the productive members of society are unable to prosper, they will just sit back and let you slugs fend for yourselves.

The LAPD has always been out of control. That cop will end up killing himself.

Accusations are flying everywhere

"When Obama came into office, he promptly increased the drone strikes in Pakistan in an effort to kill more Taliban that were hiding out in the tribal regions of Pakistan. However, it was already known during the Bush administration that the drone strikes had killed civilians, yet Obama decided to continue this policy, knowing that in doing so he would put more Pakistani civilians at risk. By doing this, he is violating Geneva Convention Article 3 Section 1A which states that “violence to life and person” are prohibited in reference to civilians and “Persons taking no active part in the hostilities.” In doing this Obama has committed war crimes"

Oh, um, sure. Then why, pray tell does the officer corps get so upset when one of the troops rolls a grenade into their tent?
That sort of thing happened in Vietnam because the troops didn't want to obey lawful, but stupid, orders in a ridiculous war where they were a political sacrifice.

Come to think of it, that might apply now.
