  • In leaked emails, Colin Powell says Israel has 200 nukes

    Discussing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s March 2015 speech to Congress about the dangers posed by the Iranian nuclear deal, in an email he sent to US Democratic party donor Jeffrey Leeds, Powell wrote that he doubted the Iranian regime would use an atomic bomb even if it could get one, since “the boys in Tehran know Israel has 200, all targeted on Tehran, and we have thousands.”

    Recent news cycles seem to have been a bit positive for Colin Powell. They at least brought him to the forefront of public consciousness. He could be a Hillary replacement and probably the best replacement. Joe Biden -- no Elizabeth Waren -- probably not Kaine promoted -- possibility Bernie Sanders -- Remote possibility Either way, if Hillary has to drop it means civil war within the Democratic party. It's going to take a light touch to consolidate that and Colin Powell might have it and can neutralize much Trumps platform.

After Democratic megadonor Jeffrey Leeds emailed Powell on July 24, 2014, to tell him he’d gotten Rudy Giuliani to admit that President Obama is a “decent man” and that Hillary Clinton is “not stoppable” for the 2016 election, Powell confessed: “I would rather not have to vote for her, although she is a friend I respect.” He noted that she is a 70-year-old person with “long track record,” but is hampered by being “greedy, not transformational, with a husband...

Powell sent the email, one of thousands leaked by the organization DC Leaks, to private equity tycoon Jeffrey Leeds Aug. 18, 2015, a few days after Clinton’s private email server was seized by the FBI. Leeds remarked that Clinton’s email scandal was getting “worse every day” and that she “may be in serious trouble.” Powell responded saying Clinton’s problems were her own fault. “Everything HRC touches she kind of screws...

Powell’s antiquated AOL account, which worked over a phone line in his office at the State Department, might have been more vulnerable to attack by hackers than the private email server the Clinton used during her tenure as secretary. Powell said in a statement he viewed his use of private email to communicate with foreign leaders and senior U.S. officials as private conversations...

    The US First Lady, Laura Bush, had tears in her eyes yesterday as she listened to a performance by the Watoto children's choir - made up mainly of children orphaned by HIV/Aids. Laura, and her husband, US President George W. Bush, were at The Aids Support Organisation clinic in Entebbe on the last stop of their four-hour visit to Uganda. During the emotional presentation, where President Yoweri Museveni was also present, Ms Bush wiped tears from her eyes as the children sang Christian songs of hope in English. Later, President Bush promised more support to Uganda in the fight...

    WASHINGTON -- Nine days after the federal government raided their homes and businesses, leaders of an alleged terror financing operation were given the opportunity to question the agency investigating them. The meeting on March 29, 2002, in the office of Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) is an example of the political clout of what the government calls the "Safa Group," a web of companies and nonprofits based in northern Virginia. One week later, former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill met with Muslim leaders with connections to the Safa Group to hear complaints about the raids. The leaders are suspected of running more...

    RUSH: Folks, Dianne Feinstein today absolved one Republican from any blame. One Republican had nothing to do with torture. Only one Republican would have stood up and demanded it stopped if he had known. Only one Republican out there would have had the honor and the guts to stop it, and therefore only one Republican is worthy of being exempted and absolved of any blame for all of this torture and all of the assault on our good values and so forth. Who do you think that one Republican who is blameless is? I ran this by Snerdley, he said,...

    Remember when Valerie Plame was the poster girl for Bush and Cheney-haters? A desk jockey at the CIA with some flowing blonde hair claim to glamour (in terms of image exploitation, a Wendy Davis-like figure), Plame was supposedly endangered when her name was supposedly leaked by someone in the Bush administration, supposedly in retaliation for her husband Joe Wilson’s criticism of Iraq War policy.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A Senate report on the CIA's interrogation and detention practices after the 9/11 attacks concludes that the agency initially kept the secretary of state and some U.S. ambassadors in the dark about harsh techniques and secret prisons, according to a document circulating among White House staff. The still-classified report also says some ambassadors who were informed about interrogations of al-Qaida detainees at so-called black sites in their countries were instructed not to tell their superiors at the State Department, the document says. The 6,300-page Senate report on the CIA's interrogation program has been years in the making....

    The mud-choked Colorado River flows through the dry lakebed of northern Lake Powell in a new satellite image released yesterday (May 22). Western drought has left this reservoir on the border of Utah and Arizona less than half full, the satellite image captured on May 13 reveals. As of May 21, the lake was at 42 percent of capacity, according to U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) data.

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell doubled down on comments last year describing a “dark vein of intolerance” in the Republican Party, attacking voter ID laws and claiming there are “certain elements in the party that seem to go out of their way to demonize people who don’t look like the way they’d like them to look like.” Powell made the comments during a wide-ranging interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell marking the beginning of Black History Month. “You said that there’s a dark vein of intolerance in your Republican Party,” Mitchell told Powell. “I will repeat that now,” he responded....

    Appearing on MSNBC, former Secretary of State Colin Powell savaged the Republican Party of which he says he is still a member for catering to “elements” that are overtly hostile to people of other races or nationalities. Powell told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that there are groups within the GOP who “demonize people who don’t look like the way they’d like them to look.” He added that, for this reason, he believes the GOP needs him more than the Democratic Party needs him. He said that even senior-level Republicans continue to make “statements about women” and “minorities” that make the party...
  • Colin Powell, Once GOP Dream President, Is Socialist (Good article)

    Revelation: Colin Powell, George W. Bush's secretary of state, has confirmed the suspicion that derailed his plan to run for president: He's not just a liberal, but a socialist. It's been a long time ago now, but Powell was once the dream Republican presidential candidate for a lot of pundits, campaign experts and ordinary Americans who appreciated his outstanding military service and pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps success story. Now we find that Powell is with the extreme left of the Democratic Party on health care, supporting European-style single-payer socialized medicine. "I don't see why we can't do what Europe is doing, what Canada...
