No it's not a hidden porno. Just a frank exchange between Secretary of State Condaleeza Rice and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov that was never intended for public consumption. This woman has a PhD so why does she sound even dumber than George Bush when she's stammering through her 'uhs' and 'ums' about Iraq talking points?
Could it be because: like George Bush; She's got absolutely nothing of substance to say? Or perhaps more correctly, she's got nothing worth listening to.
In case you haven't seen the latest Gore post at Crooks & Liars... Here's a little reminder of the level of respect John Stossel deserves. Especially when trying to talk shit about a statesman like Al Gore!
Another great full documentary movie for everyone. 74 Minutes.
Another terrific documentary that is very powerful to watch. This is exactly the kind of film our batch of criminals in charge DO NOT want you to watch. Educate yourself people. Learn the truth about any topic instead of just swallowing whatever our Government feeds you. It's out there. It's at your fingertips and all you have to do is decide that you WANT to know the truth about any subject at all...
God save the Internet! It's funny how the subject of this documentary is a different nation entirely, but bears heavily on the current debate regarding "Net Neutrality". Watch this amazing documentary and then ask yourself, "Do I really want the giant telecommunications corporate executives to be able to decide what I can and what I CANNOT watch or read on the Internet, Network or Cable TV?"
I've got to take a break for a few days and I'm going to be doing no blogging except for promoting the video in this link. Every American should watch this video. I've seen it twice and I plan to watch it several more times. I've verified several of his assertions with hours of online research. So far my research has corroberated him 100%. Every single fact. Please watch!
I don't think I can heap enough praise on this fantastic video of a stand-up comedy performance/history lesson. I promise you you'll be amazed and highly entertained. It's 45 minutes long and you won't want to miss a second of it.]
I found this awesome video to add to this post. Picture now links to full twenty-one minute version I dug up on Google Video and now have posted on its own post.
A century of history defining exactly why we (US & UK) are currently at war in Iraq. Make no mistake people... It has nothing to do with anything ever spoken aloud on MSM or by any US Politicians. In fact it flies in the face of everything that was spoken aloud in the lead up to the invasion of Iraq.
[UPDATE] Sans-Cullote.org has put together a fantastic research list in the comments section. It is a must-see as well. Please feel free to continue adding to it if you have personally researched any aspect of this as well.
It's important that we show Democrats the importance of supporting progressive democrats who are loyal to the party.
As many of you know, Joe Lieberman is considering a run as an independent because Ned Lamont is beginning to clean his clock in CT, and the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee headed by New York's Charles Schumer is toying with the idea of supporting Joe over Ned if Joe promises to vote for Harry Reid as Majority Leader.
Yes, you read that right: the DEMOCRATIC Senate Campaign Committee might support a turncoat Independent over a progressive, netroots supported DEMOCRAT in the general election, Ned Lamont.
This is totally unacceptable, and the establishment needs to hear from us that we will not stand for it. The best first step in doing this is get a massive number of people to pressure Lieberman through this petition:
Then, call your Democratic Senator, if you have one, and tell him or her that you expect the party to support the Democratic nominee in CT, even if Leiberman runs as an Independent. No exceptions.
The Roots Project is a decentralized progressive network. I'm just asking you to consider this because I think it's very important. Do what you think is best. But I would say, if the establishment betrays the netroots driven campaign of Ned Lamont, they are telling you, very directly, that you don't matter. If they do that, we will tear them apart, I promise you.
Please feel free to forward this email around if you think you can get more people to sign the petition.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms.

Of course in an effort to spin our complete lack of preparedness for another year of monster storms, the government was trying to downplay Tropical Storm Alberto but of course with warmer surface water temperatures that are only going to keep climbing this quaint little "Tropical Storm" is now and full-fledged Hurricane Warning and over 20,000 people have been ordered to evactuate.
My friend over at TruthStream.org has a "Storm Cam" all set up so you can see Alberto's effects as they grow from strong winds into a full-fledged hurricane.
I am curious about one thing though... Is "Alberto" a documented immigrant or is this storm here illegally? Perhaps it's originally from Cuba so it doesn't have to worry about immigration because it's officially classified as a "politicial refugee" hurricane.
and a great big booming voice from the sky decrees the following...
While we genuinely appreciate the kind words you have posted on your blog about the film "Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room", on behalf of the film’s distributor and producers I must ask that you remove the film from your website immediately, as it is being streamed without proper authorization.
Thank you for your kind cooperation.
"Head Honcho" Business & Legal Affairs Magnolia Pictures
Now for those of you who don't know; the "Busines & Legal Affairs" department is also known as the "Quit ripping us off you piss-ant little blogger!" Department.
Well alrighty then Mr ever-so-gracious Corporate McKillJoy. But if Arnold's lookin' like he's leading in the polls going into the next CA Gubernatorial election, I might just make you ask me again. Something tells me if the Mr. "Head Honcho" has to ask me again, it will be in the form of a court order to cease and desist.
For those of you who still feel like checking out a great full documentary, be sure and check out the other Full Version Documentaries I have up including:
Apparently their legal departments are more interested in affecting world change for the better unlike Mr. McKillJoy above.
You ever wondered why media types still haven't figured out that "Open Source" is the best way to go. It would be the simplest thing in the world to set up a high-quality, pay-per-view webstream and they could extend the distribution reach of any production but they always seem to cling to out-dated and startingly short-sighted business models almost exclusively centered on DVD distribution.
A quick piece of advice from a web media consultant guys... You're business model is a dying model and the companies that don't start adapting their businesses to capiltalize on the demand for distributed mass web media are going to become extinct. They just won't turn into fossil fuel for greedy bastards to artifically trade in, twenty million years from now.
It is my hope that this acts as an eye opener to anyone who still believes anything that lying douchebage has to say. He is a menace and a traitor to America and he symbolizes all that is wrong with the "Main Stream Media"
