U.S. Congressman Calls For Execution Of Wikileaks Whistleblower What should happen to PFC Bradley Manning, the young man now charged with the unauthorized access of and subsequently leaking of classified military information, namely the video that Wikileaks released under the title “Collateral Murder”? Should the United States government execute him? If your name is Congressman Mike Rogers, then you believe that yes, the young man should be put to death. The congressman, appearing on a local radio station in Michigan, said that Manning’s actions (still alleged at this point—he hasn’t been convicted yet) qualify as treason in a time of war, and thus should be considered capital crimes.

Anyone taking bets on whether or not the White House Correspondents Association will be snookered into giving ClusterFox a front row seat at the Daily Press Briefings?

Right-wing media respond to AZ ruling with unhinged rhetoric I did expect that the far right would go bat shit crazy over an Arizona judge's ruling that blocked parts of the state's immigration law from taking effect. But they always surprise me by just how nutty they actually go. Media Matters has been covering it: Limbaugh predicts that "Muslim terrorists" will "have a field day in Arizona."
Bill Brady Takes Tea, My Dear “I don’t drink coffee, I take tea, my dear.” Those are the opening lines of Sting’s “An Englishman in New York,” which was inspired by British author Quentin Crisp. Ordinarily, you wouldn’t quote a song about a gay raconteur to describe Bill Brady. But Brady is alienated from the big city where, as a candidate for governor, he’s forced to spend a lot of his time.

- A radical, right-wing charismatic evangelical movement is burrowing into the power structures of major American cities and states; if Sarah Palin runs for president in 2012 we could have a New Apostolic Reformation president - By Bruce Wilson in AlterNet Editor’s note: This story is about a radical right wing movement in charismatic Christianity that claims to fight demons but, leaving demonology aside, is demonstrably close to seizing the reigns of power in entire US states. They claim to be able to raise the dead and cause miracles, such as the multiplication of Thanksgiving turkey dinners. They burn “witchcraft items” and “idols.” They hold mass exorcisms to cast out alleged evil spirits they say cause lust, pornography, addiction, homosexuality, bisexuality, and perversion.

Political pollution by right-wing zealots | Federal Way letters - Federal Way Mirror It's evident The Mirror has taken a hard right turn since your publisher came to town. Political slant of your paper is your prerogative. It is also our right as readers to let you know when we don't care for what you do. The Firearms Lawyer is little more than a self-righteous right-wing demagogue who regularly espouses conservative Fox Entertainment pabulum taken directly from the zealots who pollute the airwaves with nonstop lies, manipulation and distortion. Knapp consistently parrots the nonsense of the neoconservative ideologues who offer nothing but hate and venom. They claim to love their country unlike the rest of us, the Constitution and God.

The Takeaway from 91,000 Leaked Secret Documents on Afghanistan: It's Bad. Very Bad. Time to Go | News & Politics August 2, 2010 | Like this article? Join our email list: Stay up to date with the latest headlines via email. To say the release of 91,000 classified documents has revealed a disconnect between our public position on Afghanistan and the actual situation on the ground is like inferring a disparity between yoga and bayonets.
The buckets-full of leaked documents on the war in Afghanistan have elicited three responses, all misguided. The first is that the classified papers tell us nothing we did not already know, namely that the NATO mission has long been a mess. This assertion devalues their real value — giving the war an official stamp of failure, which can no longer be dismissed as merely the opinion of naysayers or the weak-kneed. The second is that the papers are old, covering a period ending in December 2009. Siddiqui: Afghanistan: It’s even worse than you thought
