More Dangerous Times: The New York Times Goes the Full Pravda

Those old Pravda bolsheviki could teach the NYT a couple of lessons. Such as: if you're trying to hide the facts, don't keep Benghazi alive with two denial stories in a row. Some readers might actually wonder if the Gray Lady doth protest too much, as Shakespeare might have said. When the Ford Edsel became a punch line for late-night comedy, Ford wisely stopped advertising that crummy car. The NYT does the opposite -- reminding everybody about Obama's betrayal of our troops and diplomats at Benghazi.

This is PR suicide. But who ever thought the NYT editors had any brains? They're just Party apparatchiks.

Conservatives tend to think that our opposition is clever, when they are merely ruthless string puppets. Great power goes together with great stupidity.

American Stinker.

It figures. A nitwit site for ancient nitwits like Gunner.

So far, the NYT Benghazi story prove your side to be liars and traitors.

Most Americans could care less about your obsession with it.

Funny how no years long investigation was made into the contractors killed and hung from bridges in Fallujah when Bush was around.

Didn't those American deaths count??

This is how the fascists fight back, by calling their opposition commies!!

It's be funny if it weren't so stupid.

----------

Horror at Fallujah / SAVAGE ATTACK: Bodies dragged through street, hung from bridge 4 U.S. contractors killed in ambush hours after 5 soldiers slain in Iraq
Colin Freeman, Chronicle Foreign Service
Published 4:00 am, Thursday, April 1, 2004

""For the occupants of the two gleaming sport utility vehicles cruising down the debris-strewn highway that passes for Fallujah's main drag, it would have seemed like just another trip through bandit country.

Like any foreign contractors working in Iraq's trouble spots, they would adhere to the usual rules: Keep your bulletproof vest on tight, the machine guns and side-arms ready, and think very carefully before pulling over -- even if you've just knocked a child off his bike.

None of that would save the Blackwater Security Consulting convoy from disaster around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. The four Americans on board were ripped apart by withering gunfire practically before they knew what hit them, their grisly deaths the most dramatic episode on a day when a total of nine Americans were killed in Iraq's hostile Sunni triangle.

Exactly how the contractors' convoy was stopped probably never will be clear. Some reports suggested it had made the fatal mistake of hitting the brakes when armed men blocked the path, rather than flooring the accelerator in the hope of barging through. Others suggested the occupants already had been killed by gunshots before their cars even ground to a halt.""

----------

So where was the Congressional investigation?? Where was the outrage that 4 Americans were murdered and desecrated in a terrorist attack??

Didn't Bush care about their famillies??

Your ignorant hatred is so easy to impeach, it's hardly worth my time.

I'm not sure how this is going to hold up under Justice Department scrutiny but at least the requirement to show ID when voting doesn't go into effect until 2016. It could work.
What I find more disturbing is the change in North Carolina's voting laws that specifies any ballots cast at the wrong polling station will be thrown out. Now, THAT seems very unconstitutional.
No state allows you to vote if your name is not on the voter roll. Why it is important to know which precinct to vote at as that polling place will have your name on the rolls.

However NC does not forbid someone from voting due to this problem

"If the election officials can not find your name on the list of registered voters when you go to vote, or if you encounter any other problem, you have the right to receive what is called a “Provisional Ballot.” You will have to fill out a form in addition to your ballot; the form helps the officials research your registration history. If your eligibility to vote is verified, your ballot will count like a regular ballot. You will be given a phone number and PIN number or a website to use to check the status of your Provisional Ballot and learn if it has been approved or rejected."

Actual drawing of Anthony Johnson. America’s first slave owner.
According to colonial records, the first slave owner in the United States was a black man.
Prior to 1655 there were no legal slaves in the colonies, only indentured servants. All masters were required to free their servants after their time was up. Seven years was the limit that an indentured servant could be held. Upon their release they were granted 50 acres of land. This included any Negro purchased from slave traders. Negros were also granted 50 acres upon their release.
Anthony Johnson was a Negro from modern-day Angola. He was brought to the US to work on a tobacco farm in 1619. In 1622 he was almost killed when Powhatan Indians attacked the farm. 52 out of 57 people on the farm perished in the attack. He married a female black servant while working on the farm.
When Anthony was released he was legally recognized as a “free Negro” and ran a successful farm. In 1651 he held 250 acres and five black indentured servants. In 1654, it was time for Anthony to release John Casor, a black indentured servant. Instead Anthony told Casor he was extending his time. Casor left and became employed by the free white man Robert Parker.
Anthony Johnson sued Robert Parker in the Northampton Court in 1654. In 1655, the court ruled that Anthony Johnson could hold John Casor indefinitely. The court gave judicial sanction for blacks to own slave of their own race. Thus Casor became the first permanent slave and Johnson the first slave owner.
Whites still could not legally hold a black servant as an indefinite slave until 1670. In that year, the colonial assembly passed legislation permitting free whites, blacks, and Indians the right to own blacks as slaves.
By 1699, the number of free blacks prompted fears of a “Negro insurrection.” Virginia Colonial ordered the repatriation of freed blacks back to Africa. Many blacks sold themselves to white masters so they would not have to go to Africa. This was the first effort to gently repatriate free blacks back to Africa. The modern nations of Sierra Leone and Liberia both originated as colonies of repatriated former black slaves.
However, black slave owners continued to thrive in the United States.
By 1830 there were 3,775 black families living in the South who owned black slaves. By 1860 there were about 3,000 slaves owned by black households in the city of New Orleans alone.

One of the earliest__not the first, second or third__but among the earliest. It's an interesting story if you can find the untainted version.

Where did you get your tainted version? WND? Another right wing blog?
