Oh, there's plenty of truth. Plenty of lies and stonewalling to keep it hidden too.
A Pew Research Report showed that those who buy into conspiracy theories are "people who did not attend college, people who live in the Midwest or the South, and people in rural areas." In other words, the ill informed.

The Miami Heat has one white player on the roster, a drug-addict benchwarmer who hardly ever plays.
They have two white players, Miller and Andersen. Both have been playing all along, Miller was injured. You're an idiot. Perhaps the NBA has predominantly black players is because they are superior athletes. Ganobili on the Spurs is a phenomenal player, comes from Argentina.

Wonder why Africa was the vacation place calling him. Aren't we supposed to be tightening our belts and putting some "skin in the game"?
There are many places right here in the U.S. where he could have relaxed from all the lying and stonewalling.
Maybe because we are at WAR in Mali - one of the largest gold mining regions in the world that just happens to have the same amount of production that we owe the French in GOLD that isn't there. O must go and coordinate and be briefed on Africom plans to get Mali GOLD. Just before WW2 France, Britain and Germany shipped their GOLD to the US for safekeeping. It's "on deposit" here with our FED but noone has SEEN it with eyes since. Germany and France have demanded their GOLD back and we promised to return it over a period of several years, a little at a time. Just enough years to go to WAR and get some since its not realy there. GOLD=WAR. It's all about the money.

Only in the little world of hardcore conservatives do people buy into the asinine scandals perpetrated by sensationalized media and talking heads like Glenn Beck.
You had better wake up and look at the whole picture. Americans are sick and tired of the Republican witch hunts and the Republican party will not survive if you continue down this path.
I think that is their intent. Will they run a third party candidate in 2016?

Liberals and Conservatives on how to manage wildlife or...when liberals kill seals to manage the species population it is ok...

When its a Liberal and a Kennedy:

"Noah and me working with Canadian wild life officials to cull seal population near Rankin Inlet. Over population of seals is causing great damage to local fisheries. Thousands of seal pups must be culled each year. We worked with trappers who taught Noah how to identify the weak ones."

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/jack-coleman/201...

And when Gov Palin was for culling the Alaska wolf population:

"I am outraged by Sarah Palin's promotion of this cruel, unscientific and senseless practice, which has no place in modern America," actress and animal activist Ashley Judd said in a press release. "Because she is apparently determined to continue and expand this horrific program, I am grateful that Defenders will aggressively fight to stop her. I am proud to be a part of that effort."

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court has struck down a federal law forcing private health organizations to denounce prostitution as a condition to get AIDS funding.

The justices said Thursday the law's anti-prostitution pledge improperly restricts First Amendment rights.

Four organizations that work in Africa, Asia and South America challenged the 2003 law. They say their work has nothing to do with prostitution.

The Obama administration argued it is reasonable for the government to give money only to groups that oppose prostitution and sex trafficking because they contribute to the spread of HIV/AIDS. The high court's vote was 6-2.

Poor crybaby.

There we were, making progress in Afghanistan Taking & holding ground.

When Bush lies to invade Iraq, military assets are diverted to Iraq, we stagnate in Afghanistan & lose ground.

He calls Bin Laden irrelevant.

Our purpose in Afghanistan was to get Bin Laden. Bush abandoned that effort.

I thought even you dumbass right whiners were informed enough to know this but yet again I am surprised by just how f*cking dumb you people really are.

These are facts.
The anti-war protesting grew to the point the country wanted the war to end. The ending of the war saved soldier's lives.
This notion that we were winning after 17 years & nearly 60,000 dead soldiers is beyond stupid.
We should never have gotten involved & the entire situation could have been avoided by allowing Vietnam to be an independent country after WWII.

Freedom is an illusion; what about a spanked one?

Spanking for Jesus’ movement lets God-fearing husbands feel good about punishing their wives

ChristianDomesticDiscipline.net defines the unusual relationship as a marriage “set up according to the guidelines set forth in the Holy Bible, meaning the husband has authority over his wife within the bounds of God’s Word and enforces that authority, if need be, through discipline including but not limited to spanking.”

ChristianDomesticDiscipline.com , on the other hand, defines the relationship as “simply a traditional, male-led, Christian marriage” in which “one partner is given authority over the other, and has the means to back up that authority, usually by spanking.”

"Obama is drone-attacking Pakistan. He's expanded this war greatly. One or 2 million Pakistani refugees have had to leave the Swat Valley. It's one of the greatest refugee crises since Rwanda. Obama's bombed Yemen; he's bombed Somalia; he even threatened Eritrea, this tiny little country near Ethiopia, with invasion.

In a normal country, when your government says it might invade another country, people have a clue, but we're at war so much with so many countries no one even knows any of this stuff."

There is none. They're the cheerleaders. He can fumble the ball every single time and they'll still be doing flips and splits on the sidelines and shaking their poms-poms.

(Sorry if this posted twice.)
By November 2009, Obama had sent about 60,000 more troops into Afghanistan, bringing the total to about 100,000.
And what was the result of Obama's "right war"? According to Conn Hallinan of Foreign Policy in Focus:
"When the Obama administration sent an additional 30,000 troops into Afghanistan in 2009 as part of the “surge,” the goal was to secure the country’s southern provinces, suppress opium cultivation, and force the Taliban to give up on the war. Not only did the surge fail to impress the Taliban and its allies, it never stabilized the southern provinces of Helmand and Kandahar. Both are once again under the sway of the insurgency, and opium production has soared. What the surge did manage was to spread the insurgency into formerly secure areas in the north and west."
...Even Obama called the Iraq surge a success and Saddam is not Obama's problem now.
Obama's surges in Afghanistan have made things worse with no end in sight.
So why does he get a pass by the liberal media and Bush, in spite of stabilizing Iraq to Obama's advantage in the Middle East, did not?
You people can't be naive enough to think Obama or Bush really has a hand in military strategic planning! All they do is ok plans presented to them by generals. If the surge worked in Iraq but not in Afghanistan, it was the success & failure of the ground generals. Obama nor Bush gets no credit or blame for what goes on, on the ground in a war. The thought of it is completely stupid!

Where's Battie Lou? She's into this wooden spoon thing too:

A Beginning Domestic Discipline “Beginner’s Packet” reported on by Jezebel instructs husbands on how to best manipulate their wives using psychological tricks and corporeal punishment. The manipulation tactics range from taking away privileges like “going out with friends” to bare-bottomed spankings with a wooden paddle.

Surprisingly, many women seem to willingly enter into the Domestic Discipline lifestyle and approve of it. Those involved deny the punishments are domestic abuse.

“Most of the women who write about their CDD experiences online are not complaining,” Toronto-based writer Laura Rubino, who accidentally stumbled upon the practice earlier this month, noted.“Many of them report feeling extremely calm and relaxed after being disciplined, and believe it is an expression of their husband caring about them and their marriage, enough to help them modify their behaviour.”
