The White House illegally deleted over 10 million e-mails. Is the Bush administration hiding something?

A government watchdog group now says more than 10 million White House emails are missing. Citizens for the Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) described this massive hole in White House email records last April. At that time they thought the number was 5 million - Now they say it is more than 10 million emails. In one of the great understatements of this here Christmas season, the group says that this revised estimate - quote - highlights that this is a very serious and systematic problem at the White House - unquote.

[Video] Vietnam Veterans Against McCain

Cpl. BOB DUMAS, U.S. Army (Ret.): He didn’t want nobody to check his background because a lot of the POWs that was in the camps said he was a collaborator of the enemy. He gave the enemy the information they wanted.

Dr. JAMES LUCIER, former U.S. Senate Chief of Staff: But We do know that when he was there [in the Vietnamese prison], he cooperated with the communist news services in giving interviews there, ah, not flattering to the United States.

Grasping at Straws . by Mike Whitney

On Friday morning, Senator Christopher Dodd, the head of the Senate Banking Committee, was interviewed on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Dodd revealed that just hours earlier at an emergency meeting convened by Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke, lawmakers were told that “We’re literally maybe days away from a complete meltdown of our financial system.” Dodd added somberly, that in his three decades of serving in public office, he had “never heard language like this.”

Under Proposed Bailout, Feds Could Speculate, Nationalize Any Company or Industry, Or Do Anything Else They Want Using Taxpayer Money

So Paulson, in consultation with Bernanke, could “deem it necessary” to “stabilize” the financial markets by buying boat loads of gold. Or by cornering the market in uranium or platinum.

Or they could decide that they needed to buy Microsoft and Google.

Just like Bush and Cheney have gotten us into oil wars and wars to protect Israel under the guise of being necessary to protect our national defense, Paulson and Bernanke could do anything they want by pretending it is for the stability of the financial markets, especially since no one could challenge their actions in court.

(DOCUMENTARY)The World According to Monsanto


If you have never seen this documentary I highly recommend you watch it. This is one of the scariest documentaries I've ever seen and the sources are irrefutable. It's very well made and I like how they show how the average person no matter how technical savvy can find this information. You can even follow along using google to verify the data. This documentary makes you wonder what is Monsanto's agenda?

Pakistan's top leaders were to have been in the Islamabad Marriott hotel when it was bombed - but changed venue at the last minute, officials say.

Interior ministry head Rehman Malik said the president, prime minister and military chiefs should have been there.

He told journalists it would have been "a great catastrophe", but did not say why the dinner plans were changed.

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be soldiers.

What do you do with a drunken soldier?

Two Canadian soldiers were convicted and fined in Cyprus last March for hitting on a man's wife and then hitting the man when he objected. Allegedly, there was also some spitting. Gross.

Typical of the military, Canadian Forces spokeswoman Lieut. Isabelle Riche refused to give details or name names when the story broke, but was quite willing to misrepresent the truth as to the extent of this sort of out-of-control behaviour in Cyprus. From the National Post:

Mushroom Cloud over Wall Street

These are dark times. While you were sleeping the cockroaches were busy about their work, rummaging through the US Constitution, and putting the finishing touches on a scheme to assert absolute power over the nation's financial markets and the country's economic future. Industry representative Henry Paulson has submitted legislation to congress that will finally end the pretense that Bush controls anything more than reading the lines from a 4' by 6' teleprompter situated just inches from his lifeless pupils. Paulson is in charge now, and the coronation is set for sometime early next week.
