MSNBC’s coverage of Donald Trump earlier today was shameful. They made a mockery of objective reporting and where on high RPM’s all day discrediting and attacking Trump for being a “birther”. What’s a birther? A birther is someone who thinks that Obama was not born in the U.S. and who claim it is one of the qualifications for being president of the U.S. Therefore they conclude that Obama is not qualified to be president and is therefore in breach of some major rules, and probably should be imprisoned.

Came across this today: Mark Morford
"To the sneering disappointment of the puritanical left, Obama has turned out to be pretty much exactly what he said he'd be during his '08 campaign: flawed, exceedingly moderate, a resolute compromiser, overly pragmatic when he should've been a badass, temperate when he should've been white hot and furious, offering concessions when he should be bringing the hammer down."

I was listening to americanvoiceradio.com a couple hours ago and a gentleman by the name of John Moore, who has a website named thelibertyman.com was I believe a guest in one of the shows, and he basically was talking about this huge planet that comes around every 36,000 years or some such, and is what wiped out Atlantis, and basically it’s going to wipe us out later this year…not wiped out in the sense of complete annihilation obviously since there are humans on earth now, so it just means a few humans will be left behind to start all over… There were advanced civilizations before, p

L-3 MPRI, a division of a major U.S. defense contractor, is hunting in the mercenary community to hire “site leads” who can help oversee the company’s personnel in Mexico and also coordinate “with Mexican Army officials” at a dozen training sites, called “VMTCs,” located in Mexico.

Civil rights activist Catrina Wallace, who received national attention for her role in organizing protests around the Jena Six case, was convicted today of three counts of distribution of a controlled substance. Wallace, who is 30, became an activist after her brother, Robert Bailey, was arrested and charged with attempted murder for a school fight. Bailey and five others later became known as the Jena Six. Their case eventually brought 50,000 people on a march through the town of Jena, and as a result of the public pressure the six young men were eventually freed. The six young men are all now in college or - in the case of the youngest - on their way.

Of course the Arab League would flip-flop on Libya. Why? Because if a precedent is set for intervention on the basis of dictators massacring civilians, then they would be next, referring to the situation in Bahrain where the Saudi monarch has been cracking down on the democracy movement, also.

Check it out: I went to the following link: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/world/historical.php, from there I took the ones that had the most casualties, over 100 and such, beginning around 2004 (I had to draw the line somewhere), and then I make every date add to either 9/11, 9/11/01 or 9/11/2001 via numerological rules, which are not the same as mathematical… stuff can be flipped over and zeros can be added and deleted at will.

Have you been keeping up with this royal asshole that’s on Fox News dissing Natalie Portman for example, for being unwed, but really directing his hate to “mr. absent evil dad”, when in fact she’s engaged to marry with the father of the kid, but I digress. The Huckabee type of stable Christian marriage so-called, is nothing but a God damned farce. I was there. I was doing all the things the way the Bible said to do it (to the best of my ability), and then what happens? I get my children taken away by the Government because reading the Bible is dangerous to children.

The deeply problematic position of the Chavez regime in reference to the outbreak of popular democracy in Libya reveals the contradictions inherent in the Bolivarian revolution, particularly its need for a multipolar world. Chavez certainly has made a public display of support for the most troubled regimes, one can recall Bush's 'Axis of Evil' in particular, and while it has worked for him in the past as a symbolic gesture of independence, he has now made the wrong call.

Evo Morales Challenging Media to Read Between the Lines of “The Big White Lie”
Bolivian President Evo Morales earlier this week held up a book, titled “La Guerra Falsa,” for the world to see.
The tome Morales displayed for the cameras on March 3 at a military ceremony in La Paz, Bolivia is the Spanish-language version of “The Big White Lie,” a book penned by former DEA undercover agent Mike Levine. The book exposes the CIA's corrupt involvement in the drug war, including its role in the "cocaine coup" in Bolivia in 1980.

Inuit brought their own message to 'The Race for the Arctic'
By Brenda Norrell
While diplomats debated who owns the Arctic and what to do about melting ice, climate change, shipping and the impending spread of oil and gas development, Inuit brought their own message to the Arctic Ocean Conference in 2008.
"Much of the Arctic belongs to the Inuit," Aqqaluk Lynge, vice president of the Inuit Circumpolar Council (ICC) and now chair of the ICC, told the diplomats from five countries in 2008.
