Where do all the Citizens United billions go? To the media, of course. Conflict of interest?

Who is going to report on the fact that the billions of dollars unleashed by a court decision defying a century of electoral law goes to the very same entities that are supposed to report on the fact that the court decision has unleashed these billions?

The media is drowning in campaign ad money, there is not enough time available to fill the demand, so there may not be as many eyeballs, but who cares when the swimming pool of mullah is overflowing?

All they have to do is keep the two team race close, keep advancing any and all speech as equal and equally worthy, all events are political, all issues ignored in favor of marching bands and circus acts, a horse race is vital until Election Day and then close the vault.

It is a self perpetuating perpetual motion circle jerk between the media and the money.

Who will watch the watchmen?

New Mexico Park Honoring 1868 Mass Murderer Kit Carson Renamed to Red Willow Park


"In 1868 Kit Carson was ordered by the U.S. Army to relocate around 8,000 Navajo men, women and children 300 miles from Arizona to Fort Sumner, New Mexico, on what's called the "Long Walk." An estimated 200 Navajos died from cold and starvation after traveling in brutal and harsh winter conditions for almost two months."


This is a form of reparation, is it wrong?

Cool it, America. Iran has our back, they have TWO Battalions of elite troops on the ground now.....


And I bet they will leave no man behind, because war is hell, and Sgt. Bergdahl's writings show you exactly why.


Iran has reportedly intervened in the Iraq conflict, deploying a branch of the Revolutionary Guards to bolster Iraqi government troops who have been routed by the extremist Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis).

(Isis was originally an offshoot of al-Qaeda, but its leader Abu-Bakr al-Bakri broke with Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden’s successor)

Iran’s Quds Forces helped troops from Nouri al-Maliki’s beleaguered Shia-led Iraqi government to retake 85 per cent of Tikrit, Saddam Hussein’s birthplace, from Isis yesterday, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Iranian president Hassan Rouhani said the Islamic Republic “will not tolerate this violence and terrorism . . . we will fight and battle violence and extremism and terrorism in the region and the world”.

Members of the Revolutionary Guard Corps told the newspaper that two battalions were shifted from Iranian border provinces to protect the Shia holy cities of Najaf and Kerbala, and to tighten security around Baghdad.


Edit: President Hassan Rouhani and every American President since Reagan and every European leader since Thatcher have uttered the exact same words Iranian president Hassan Rouhani said "the Islamic Republic “will not tolerate this violence and terrorism . . . we will fight and battle violence and extremism and terrorism in the region and the world”.", but who to believe?

Mapping The Religious Divide in the Middle East


Soldiers love peace, generals love war, politicians love power.

No wonder some soldiers, like one certain Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who are sent into wars for the war and power lust of others, may be a little questioning of why they are really there, when they get there.

“If this letter makes it to the U.S.A., tell those involved in the investigation that there are more sides to the cittuwation (sic),” he adds. “Please tell D.C. to wait for all evadince (sic) to come in.” , wrote Bergdahl. Truer misspelled words have never been written.

And doesn't war make strange bedfellows, Iran and America now united in warding off the invading hordes of......well, the bad guys.*

Sgt.Bergdahl's anti-war writings from the frontline as a time of war approaches again, there has to be a connection. And it is not "Bengazheeee", so please do not give Madame Lindsey airtime to screech that nonsense, please, I am begging you in the media.

Ethno-Religious Map of Iraq - is This A Sunni Kurd Invasion?


Note the 24 cities in the Sunni north already controlled by ISIS, hence the open civil war in Iraq for the last two years that barely got noticed in America because coverage of the wingnuts swamped all else.

Memory Shocker For The Media: November 17, 2008, Bush Admin., Iraq Ratify End of U.S. Incursion

November 17, 2008: U.S. and Iraqi Parliament ratified a status of forces agreement that mandated the end of 2011 as the date by which American troops must leave Iraq.

BAGHDAD — With a substantial majority, the Iraqi Parliament on Thursday ratified a sweeping security agreement that sets the course for an end to the United States’ role in the war and marks the beginning of a new relationship between the countries.

Baghdad Bureau:

The pact, which still must be approved by Iraq’s three-person presidency council, a move expected in the next few days, sets the end of 2011 as the date by which the last American troops must leave the country.

Its passage, on a vote of 149 to 35, according to a parliamentary statement, was a victory for Iraq’s government as well as for the often fractious legislative body, which forged a political compromise among bitterly differing factions in 10 days of intense negotiations.


Text of agreement:



The memory hole also contains evidence Obama wanting to keep troops in Iraq after 2011 for now and even then, obvious reasons, and being refused by Iraq. The Google is your friend, journos.

"He needs to call off the dogs and turn off the fire hoses"; Wisconsin County clerk to anti-gay A.G.


"Not sure of the legal theory behind the notion that Wisconsin Attorney General's thoughts are more binding than the U.S. Constitution, but he seems to be arguing that since the judge did not issue an "injunction" ordering clerks to follow the ruling that nobody has to. All of that, however, is just buildup to a delightful smackdown by one of the more prominent county clerks being threatened by Van Hollen."


There are a lot of people out there who exercise their freedom of speech is these special ways, what they say matters as much as the screeching of Hate Media and Stupid Media.

Bergdahl's "Rat Out Platoon" member allegations newsworthy; Domestic Terrorism not so much.

The unhealthy obsession of the non hate media, especially CNN, on texts and journals of a released soldier, the last American soldier in captivity, even as the rats in his platoon spread gossip and hearsay to anyone who cares to spread their shit, it all contrasts markedly with the complete media non interest in the mass murdering Millers, mass murderers of 3 people, 2 cops, real domestic terrorists shouting revolution, lovers of the Gasden flag, the stolen symbol of the recently triumphant tea party in Virginia, beloved of the Moocher Militia, and they left tons and tons of interesting journals and writings and videos and audios.......why the crickets on that?

Because the hurt feely-weelies of a few Congresscritters is more important than domestic terrorism?

After Secretary Hagel's surgical removal of all the propaganda points yesterday, that is all these propaganda masters have got in the tank to run on? The fumes of interpreting journal writings?

Chuck Hagel is Rocking The House - dignified, passionate, feisty, knocking down all the tea party

and Fox News propaganda. You can literally see the air coming out of the propaganda balloon.

Daring to suggest that 5 year prisoner of war Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is in Germany for anything other than professional medical care was a what the frack moment that Hagel handled with grace and the perfect amount of WTF are you yammering about?

America leaves no man behind, what part of that do the assholes not understand?

Brat Is An Ayn Rand Idiot With Delusions of Religious Grandeur; Judge For Yourself:


Man Who Just Beat Cantor Won't Answer Basic Policy Questions

"Though Brat ran significantly to the right of Eric Cantor, blasting the 7-term Congressman for supporting “amnesty” and being too closely associated with “crony capitalism,” the “issues” section of his website is just as vague as his MSNBC interview. Stretching just 871 words, the site is filled with generalities about restoring “the relationship between doctor and patient,” “broad-spectrum energy approach that relies on the free market” and “ending our reliance on foreign oil.”
