The fascists in Egypt want to purge members of the judiciary to install pro-Islamic fundamentalists.

Obama is pleased. Democrats rejoice!

By the way, the low-class POS in the White House did not send a single high-level official to the Thatcher funeral, not even worthless old Joe Biden.

Gun control fight just beginning

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
Paul Waldman: Background check failure another GREAT day for Congress THAT DID THE RIGHT THING!
Senate undemocratic, he says; small rural states have outsized power
He says Sen. Chuck Grassley spread TRUTH to kill legislation
(CNN)-- When the Manchin-Toomey background check amendment, a modest gun restriction by any reasonable measure, was defeated, President Barack Obama called it a "shameful day in Washington." But as anyone who watches Congress knows, it has more than its share of shameful days.
There the deck was stacked against not only this bill, but against any bill that would restrict the proliferation of guns in any way. If those seeking sanity in our gun laws want to succeed, they'd better prepare themselves for a difficult journey.
Many people thought that the Newtown massacre changed everything about the gun debate in America, and that new legislation was inevitable. The first part of that belief is still true; the second part is not. The bill was doomed for a number of reasons.
HERE WE JUST HAD ANOTHER 9/11 IN BOSTON AND THESE PEOPLE
ARE TALKING ABOUT A DAMN GUN!WE NEED OUR GUNS MORE THAN
EVER TO PROTECT OUR BABIES,KIDS AND FAMILY!WE NEED TO VOTE OUT THESE DUMB ASS PEOPLE 2014 WHO WANT GUN CONTROL!WE ALREADY HAVE TO HAVE BACKGROUND CHECKS TO BUY A GUN!!
Did 3,000 die in Boston? Close to that? What the the Russian brothers use to kill the two cops? Wonder where it came from?(BTW, 40% of guns sold in America are not subject to any background checks at all. Maybe they bought it all online...)

Texas Lynches Another Black Martyr

HUNTSVILLE, Texas - A North Texas man convicted in the fatal shooting of a teenager during a carjacking outside a nightclub 12 years ago has been executed.

Forty-year-old Ronnie Threadgill received lethal injection Tuesday evening in Huntsville less than two hours after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a last-day appeal.

Threadgill expressed love to friends and supporters and said he was "going to a better place."

He was pronounced dead almost 30 minutes later.

Attorneys for the 40-year-old Threadgill argued his case deserved review because he had deficient legal help during his 2002 capital murder trial when he was sentenced to die for the killing of 17-year-old Dexter McDonald.

State attorneys contended the appeal was only an attempt to delay the punishment.

The execution is the third this year in Texas.

Obama wore a small American flag pin, no green ribbon.

Chicago has started off 2013 on the wrong foot, with this past week’s murder rate outpacing 2012’s. In the wake of Sandy Hook, many people have called for increased gun control. While they have mostly targeted so called “assault weapons,” proponents of gun control have also sought to further limit handguns. Chicago has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country. Illinois remains the only state in the country where nobody can legally carry a concealed weapon, and lawmakers recently introduced measures to restrict legal gun ownership even more.

Gun control policies don’t work because they disarm citizens while keeping criminals in possession of guns. Chicago’s strict policies have effectively given lawbreakers a monopoly on weapons in many parts of the city that the Chicago Police Department cannot or will not police effectively.Several lawmakers including Vice President Biden are wearing green ribbons during The State of the Union address in solidarity with victims of the Newtown, Conn., school shooting.

again check the facts

the population of illegal immigrants in the U.S. has gone down while President Obama has been in office.

the number of illegal immigrants coming across the border has also gone down while President Obama has been in office

Despite the phony wars between Democrats and Republicans, there is consistency at the top. Ever since the Ronald Reagan presidency Democrats and Republicans have done their best to put and keep the malefactors of great wealth, the 1%, on top. Barack Obama has done nothing to alter this awful trend. Like all of his predecessors he would never have become president if he hadnt sided with the ruling classes.

That simple fact explains everything the president has done to date and eliminates any pretense of mystery surrounding his actions regarding budget negotiations. His decisions to convene a deficit cutting cat food commission and to propose austerity measures including cuts to Social Security and Medicare are easily understood when the foundations of our system are understood.

We do not live in a true democracy. We live in a country controlled by corporate interests and wealthy individuals. They are the rulers and they determine who does and doesnt serve in public office and what those people can and cannot do. They choose the politicians before we know their names and Barack Obama is exhibit A in that regard. There is a nationwide casting call made up of rich, influential people who give a thumbs up or down to potential presidential candidates. The people who promise to work on their behalf get the yea vote before anyone votes in Iowa or New Hampshire. That is how the ruling class works.

Barack Obamas name was new to most Americans when he spoke at the 2004 Democratic convention but his presence there was proof that he already had buy-in from the movers and shakers and that he was planning his run for the presidency even then. The ambitious senator knew where his bread was buttered and showed his acumen and his loyalties early.

In 2006 Obama was only in his second year in the senate when he spoke at an event convened by the Brookings Institutions Hamilton Project, a neo-liberal think tank created by Clinton administration treasury secretary Robert Rubin and deputy secretary Roger Altman. The video of Obamas speech shows us that the austerity measures being carried out today were being planned even then and the Rubins and Altmans of the world knew they had someone who could get away with doing what Republicans could only dream about.
