    Protesters, many who were dressed all in black and covered their faces with bandanas or gas masks, broke windows, tipped over newspaper boxes, pulled trash bins into the street, threw bottles, bent rearview mirrors on a bus, flattened tires, and attempted to block intersections by joining hands. Some protesters were seen lying on an interstate exit ramp to block traffic in downtown St. Paul and linking arms to block other roads. At one point, people pushed a trash bin filled with trash and threw garbage in the streets and at cars. They also took down orange detour road signs. One...

    It's around noon and I'm driving to the Xcel Center in St. Paul when a group of kids pulls police tape across the intersection of 10th Street and Jackson. I ask a nearby girl to let me through. I'm not a cop, I say, and I'm not a delegate. I just want to find the parking lot. She smiles, flashes a peace sign, and turns away. Apparently people looking for parking are not the enemy. SNIP Now everyone's running up Sixth, away from the shrieking sirens. I hear a crash. I look to my right and see a ground-level window...
  • Obama Attended Kos Convention on August 4, 2007

    We are pleased to announce that Sen. John Edwards, Sen. Barack Obama, and Gov. Bill Richardson confirmed their participation in a Presidential Leadership Forum to be held August 4 in Chicago. Confirmations from other candidates are forthcoming. The event—the first ever collaborative presidential forum with both a respected blogger and a leading member of the traditional media as moderators—is an opportunity to use technology to empower citizens to engage and evaluate America's potential leaders, both face-to-face and online. Many political candidates, including Edwards and Obama, already frequently use sites like Daily Kos to dialogue with the public.
  • Here to report 15,000 Loons are protesting the RNC Convention

    I would guess 15,000 is at the top end. You had your Che Guavara group, your Socialist group, your Communist group, your Islam is peace group, your Hate America group, your Israel out of Palestine group. Quite a hodge podge of purple haired youngsters and really REALLY old looking hippies. There had to be 1 cop for every 10 protestors including a huge squad of swat. All in all it was pretty boring and very very hot downtown today. I felt sorry for the police having to have all their gear on them in the hot weather.
  • Stooping to Lowest Level: Democratic Claim of Palin's 'Faked Pregnancy' Gaining Steam

    As I reported earlier, the scurrilous claim that McCain vice presidential pick Governor Sarah Palin faked her pregnancy with a Down's Syndrome child is beginning to spread among the lowest of the nutrooters. Now, the unhinged, smear site DemocraticUnderground.com has boosted this lie to their front pages. Naturally, since these hate sites feed into each other, the spurious source of the DU story is another DailyKos story like the one I earlier reported upon. Of course, this whole meme is nothing but a lie. Are we expected to believe an entire state, its hospitals, doctors and media establishment helped cover...
  • Mass Hunger Strike to Restore Constitutional Order (anti-War, anti-Fed hunger strike)

    WASHINGTON, 9/18 -- On September 17, 2008, the 221st anniversary of the U.S. Constitution, thousands of Americans gathered in Washington, DC to begin to “Hunger for Redress.” They began their mass hunger strike to draw worldwide attention to the fact that the Government of the United States of America has not only been flagrantly violating its own Constitution, it now refuses to respond or even acknowledge the People's Petitions for Redress of these Grievances despite the fact the Constitution requires the Government to do so: 1. The Iraq invasion in violation of the war powers clauses. 2. The Federal Reserve...

    Some protesters arrested at the Democratic National Convention could be jailed in a city- owned warehouse, complete with metal cages and barbed wire, CBS4 News has learned. Investigative reporter Rick Sallinger discovered the location and managed to get inside Tuesday for a look. The newly created lockup, in a warehouse northeast of Denver, contains dozens of metal cages made of chain-link fence material, topped by rolls of barbed wire. Each of these fenced-in areas is about 15 feet by 15 feet, with a lock on the door. A sign on the wall reads "Warning, electric stun devices used in this...

    Toby Keith Hits Back at Accusation Song Is Pro-Lynching Friday, August 08, 2008 Toby Keith hit back at a recent blog post that derided his 2003 song "Beer for My Horses" as a pro-lynching anthem. "The song was a hit and the words 'lynch' and 'racism' has never come up until this moron wrote this blog," he said, according to ContactMusic. The country singer, 47, was on "The Colbert Report" last month to perform "Beer for My Horses," the popular song that inspired a movie of the same name. Huffington Post blogger Max Blumenthal called the song an "ode to...

    As a Los Angeles county prosecutor, Vincent Bugliosi batted a thousand in murder cases: 21 trials, 21 convictions, including the Charles Manson case in 1971. As an author, Mr. Bugliosi has written three No. 1 best sellers and won three Edgar Allan Poe awards, the top honor for crime writers. More than 30 years ago he co-wrote the best seller “Helter Skelter,” about the Manson case. So Mr. Bugliosi could be forgiven for perhaps thinking that a new book would generate considerable interest, among reviewers and on the broadcast talk-show circuit. But if he thought that, he would have been...

Gary Ackerman (D-Jamaica Estates) early Wednesday morning in reaction to legislation he submitted that would impose sanctions on Iran. The Queens Democrat emerged from his home on the Potomac River smiling and clapping after the demonstrators, known as Code Pink, had been chanting for nearly 30 minutes. They want Ackerman to withdraw the legislation because they believe it symbolizes the first step on a path to...

    Stuff White People Like ^ | June 25, 2008 | Isaac “Absent” Amirian
    Being a truly advanced white person means being able to speak with authority about pretty much any field of conversation- especially politics. In order for white people to streamline the process of knowing everything, all human beings can be neatly filed into one of two categories: People I Agree With, and People Who are Just Like Adolf Hitler. Comparing people to Hitler is an easy way for white people to get a strong point across to the less enlightened, or the insufficiently white. Everyone knows who Adolf Hitler was. And everyone knows that Hitler was very, very bad. Therefore, if...

Bush may soon be the sole president to have a memorial named after him that you can contribute to from the bathroom. prize-winning water-treatment plant on the shoreline to the George W.

    I nominate Congressman Robert Wexler as the craziest man in a not very sane Congress: Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Fla.), one of the most vocal opponents of the Bush administration on Capitol Hill, said Scott McClellan's book and testimony justify the beginning of impeachment hearings against Vice President Dick Cheney. During questioning of McClellan, Wexler asked the former White House press secretary if he believed Bush authorized the leaking of Valerie Plame Wilson's name. When McClellan said no, Wexler said this meant that Cheney must have been the source of the leak, meaning Cheney was seeking to retaliate against the wife...

    BERKELEY - A day after UC Berkeley claimed victory in its battle to build a sports training facility, the university changed its stance on removing tree sitters and decided to bring down those who don't put up a fight, a campus spokesman said late Thursday. About 5:15 p.m. Thursday an arborist in a cherry picker removed a man in his 20s who came out of the tree "very quietly," said university spokesman Dan Mogulof. The man was arrested on suspicion trespassing and could face other charges as well, Mogulof said. The man, whose name was not released, was the second...

But if former Navy Secretary Richard Danzig really is a potential national security adviser under President Obama, he's doing his potential future boss no favors when he talks like this: Richard Danzig, who served as Navy Secretary under President Clinton and is tipped to become National Security Adviser in an Obama White House, told a major foreign policy conference in Washington that the future of US strategy in the war on terrorism should follow a lesson from the pages of Winnie the Pooh, which can be shortened to: if...

Yeah, let's put the EVIL Bush regime on trial for torturing prisoners with air conditioning and overfeeding them with orange glaze chicken. Such brutality must not go unpunished. Meanwhile have you noticed not a peep from the DUmmies about Al Quaeda terrorists sawing people's heads off on camera nor flying planes into buildings. Oops! I forgot. The latter was really orchestrated by...
