  • Ron Paul says he'd consider putting Dennis Kucinich in his Cabinet

    Ron Paul says he'd consider putting Dennis Kucinich in his Cabinet By Justin Sink - 09/21/11 12:02 PM ET Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) says he would consider putting the liberal congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) in his Cabinet if he wins the presidency in 2012. Paul said his libertarian political philosophy helps him connect with some on the far left — including Kucinich, who shares Paul’s general anti-war stance. Paul joked that if he brought the Ohio congressman aboard in his administration, he might have to create a "Department of Peace." "You've got to give credit to people who think," he...

    Representative Barbara Lee (D-CA) has introduced a bill that I think it's important everyone know about. You may remember that when then-candidate Barack Obama was running for office in 2008, he said, "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded." Don't believe me? me now? Well, it seems as if the building blocks may be coming together if Lee has her way. She has introduced a bill that creates a...

    Dems pitch Department of Peacebuilding By Pete Kasperowicz - 02/26/13 09:57 AM ET House Democrats led by Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) have introduced legislation that would create a federal Department of Peacebuilding, which would be tasked with everything from finding ways to scale back U.S. military actions to ending bullying at schools. Under her bill, H.R. 808, the new department would be led by a Cabinet-level Secretary of Peacebuilding, who would have a seat on the National Security Council. The department would be "dedicated to peacebuilding, peacemaking, and the study and promotion of conditions conducive to both domestic and international...

    Dem renews call for 'Department of Peace' after Conn. shooting By Pete Kasperowicz - 12/17/12 02:57 PM ET Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) on Monday afternoon resumed his call for a federal "Department of Peace," which he said is needed to counteract a "cultural matrix" in the United States that produces violence. "On a global level, this type of thinking justified war and brings the slaughter of innocents. Nationally, it sows seeds for murder," he said on the House floor. "Yet war abroad and violence at home are not inevitable. We have it within our power to recreate America today." "Let...

    I voted the straight Republican ticket on election night, but I held my nose when I did it. I was afraid, and I still am, that if the Democrats got in, we would cut and run in Iraq. We finally have some sensible judges on the Supreme Court who abide by the U.S. Constitution. I hope that doesn't change. There are a lot of unbalanced Democrats. Watch for them to pass the Department of Peace and Nonviolence Act that was submitted by Goofy Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) along with 74 Democratic co-sponsors. They propose a new "Department of Peace and Nonviolence"...

    To read entire article click text: In a court hearing in San Diego, Kenneth Breen, an assistant United States attorney, said the adviser, Amr Ibrahim Elgindy, tried to sell $300,000 in stock on the afternoon of Sept. 10 and told his broker that the stock market would soon plunge. "Perhaps Mr. Elgindy had preknowledge of Sept. 11, and rather than report it he attempted to profit from it," Mr. Breen said. So, what did Mr. Elgindy, who was trying to sell $300k in stock, tell the financial world the day after 9-11?  Read it for yourself! Immediate release

    Rep. Dennis Kucinich was just on Fox, being interviewed. When asked if Kucinich agreed that Hezbollah is a pack of murdering terrorists, Kucinich became aggitated and stated that 'Hezbollah is part of the elected government of Lebanon.' When he was asked is he agreed that Hezbollah must be destroyed, he replied, 'I agree the war must be ended.' When the interviewer, clearly incredulous, gave Kucinich another chance to denounce Hezbollah, Kucinich would have none of it, and even more aggitated, repeatd that Hezbollah is part of the elected government of Lebanon that has the right to exist and be included...

    Yes. I am new to this website and was wondering why my account was banned? I posted an article I wrote about how Buddhism not Islam is a threat to America and is the fastest growing religion instead of Islam. I noted how Buddhism denies the existence of God and the divinity of Christ, I also made note of how Buddhists practice an evil satanic ceremony called doku. It is a ritual where Buddhist monks use a doku drum made of the hide of a white christian baby to conjure up demons for human sacrifice. Using three fingers they beat...

    BRADENTON -- Propped on crutches near the steps of the Manatee County Administration Complex on Friday, Will Ruliffson held a large, cut-out pie chart. On it, a slim slice marked the 2 percent that he wants the government to allocate to a U.S. Department of Peace. "It's not asking for much," said Ruliffson, 73, a Bradenton resident and member of the social action committee of the Manatee Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. Next to Ruliffson, three women held a sign that read, "On behalf of mothers everywhere: Peace wants a piece of the pie." Ruliffson was one of about 20 people who...

    And what if, this coming November 2, at the same time as millions of Americans, all the world's peoples went to the ballot box to vote? There would be legitimacy in their participation in the election of the president of the world's greatest power. Simply because their lives, their future, depend on it in one way or another. It would be a symbolic gesture, a universal speech in observation of a fact and a direct and unambiguous way of saying that the fate of the world depends in large part on the American presidency. The Vietnamese and the Chileans at...

    The Daily Breeze ^ | August 13, 2004 | Walter Cronkite
    With this nation embroiled in what threatens to be an interminable "War on Terrorism," an idea put forward last year by Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich has considerable appeal. Kucinich, who was the one candidate in the Democratic primaries to unfailingly promote the party's traditional Franklin Roosevelt liberalism, proposed the establishment of a Department of Peace. Now he has introduced in the House HR 2459, a bill that would establish a Peace Department, adding a new Cabinet post to the executive branch of government. The Department of Peace would "advise the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of State on all...

    Department of Peace? By Monty Rainey A Department of Peace? Maybe you’ve heard about it, since the bill [H.R. 2459] was first introduced by Dennis Kucinich in July, 2001. But now things are getting serious. A quick Google search will show hundreds of websites and news stories asking you to support this legislation. That means it’s time to take a much closer look at just what this Department of Peace would be. Would there be any reason to oppose a governmental department designed expressly for the purpose of promoting a peaceful global society? You’d better believe there is plenty...

Last Thursday Ms. Lindauer, 41, was arrested in her suburban Washington, D.C. home and charged with “prohibited financial transactions” from, acting as “an unregistered agent of,” and “conspiring” to act as a spy, both before and after the incursion a year ago, for Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi Intelligence Service (IIS). Known in Arabic as the Mukhabbarat, the IIS has reportedly been involved in terrorist operations, intimidating and killing Iraqi defectors and dissidents, and according to Anwar...

    WASHINGTON - Democrat Dennis Kucinich has only two delegates and low single-digit showings after nine nominating contests, yet he said Wednesday he's staying in the presidential race. "The race for the nomination will go all the way to the convention," Kucinich said in a statement. "It is at the convention where I will win the nomination, based on the emergence of Iraq as the defining issue." In the seven states that voted Tuesday, Kucinich finished with no more than 5 percent of the vote and none of the 269 pledged delegates at stake. A candidate needs 2,162 delegates to win...
