Sure enough, his income soared 20 percent, and he could finally afford a Chevy Silverado pickup to help out. The dairy conglomerate that distributed his milk wanted everything Mr. Preston could supply. Supermarket orders were skyrocketing.
We expected broken promises. But the gap between the soaring expectations that accompanied Barack Obama’s inauguration and his wretched performance is the broadest such chasm in recent historical memory. This guy makes Bill Clinton look like a paragon of integrity and follow-through.
From health care to torture to the economy to war, Obama has reneged on pledges real and implied. So timid and so owned is he that he trembles in fear of offending, of all things, the government of Turkey. Obama has officially reneged on his campaign promise to acknowledge the Armenian genocide. When a president doesn’t have the nerve to annoy the Turks, why does he bother to show up for work in the morning?

Second: to emphasize what Ladyums has said: "you can have all the free speech you want as long as it is not effective speech."
Third: to point out this thread before it is taken down-- that klown-kar-Kall introduced and will not go dormant (so far) because he is so desperately trying to spin his snake-oil salesman self-interest spot in cyberland as anything other than Vichy "spin-the-story."
But in recent weeks, the administration has quietly made a decision to open the way for at least two dozen more mountaintop removals."
I spent the years 1963-89 in Berkeley and saw much of the civil rights, anti-Vietnam and free speech action there. I also got very used to seeing certain people target the press and assume 'leadership' postures in what were essentially consensus activities.Our culture and power structure are antithetical to real democracy, which is by definition messy. Opportunists and parasites are quick to co-opt whenever they can and dilute serious efforts. I imagine you know the ones I'm talking about: when movements were in they came in late to get some action, and fifteen years later you found them standing around talking real estate. The Democratic Party loved them.It was inevitable that OEN would pull back from real issues and join in with the Corporate party's efforts to manipulate opinion and diffuse dissent. Safety valves are very helpful to the power structure...in other words you can have all the free speech you want as long as it is not effective speech. Once you have an impact, all bets are off.It is definitely time for me to move on.
I don’t know whether any of you are interested in the fraud of finance, from the coin in your piggy-bank to the forty to sixty quadrillion in the tax-exempt ‘Trusts’. But just in case -
Original: Reader, you don’t honestly think any ‘publisher’ would let this through, do you? This is secret information. However, it was posted as ‘a comment’, received much admiration for its penetrating information, was copied and appeared elsewhere, and now is a much-read text.
WHO exactly is causing planetary overheating?
The five-day national exercise got under way on Sunday, with defence officials playing down any connection to recent and growing tensions with Iran.
Not sure which is worse selling your soul or being so distracted someone reaches in and takes it. What do y'all think? Person who introduced me was an old college friend who is owned by OpEdLose. If I ever hear from her again I'll have to ask her - LOL.
Never signed up cuz...not much of a joiner plus there were too many that were filtering The Truth. Then saw people were taking on Monsanto and I had some hope. Before I knew it some of my favorite commenters were disappearing...but here you are! I'm home.
Not much of a writer, but maybe I can help find some good info to link to.
Resist and then some,

is this the one you wanted? :38 seconds in.
Once you get this, please let someone know and Admins can delete post.
(O/T) Hey, did you guys hear? An author just put up a million dollar bounty for anyone who is directly responsible for bringing Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Blair up before any judge anywhere, for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
$1 Million Dollar Bounty
so not only does this sick prick now know my moniker, I've supplied him with a recent photo of myself ...
I'm still learning what to do here ... I don't even know where the hell this comment will show-up, hell, it might go straight to Napolitano's desk ...
I tried uploading a toon, god knows where the hell that is ...
and we're supposed to defeat the NWO with leadership like this?
Ad Hominem attacks on COTO-No Problem
Adoration of war criminal president Barack Obama-No problem
Silencing dissent and then lying about it-No problem.
I just recieved this. In fact I do not even know how to produce the actual full screen shot. Perhaps some of you all could help me.
Anyway, now while this may not be as big time as Stephen Lesser on Faux Snooze (please note sarcasm)but it is still
This is a documentary that some young people from Ohio put on about the RNC in St Paul last year. I was interviewed in it and you can watch the documentary here.
While some like Stephen Lesser and Rob Kall may get that
golden microphone, these kids went out and created their own. just like we are here. We do not need Op Ed Snooze, Faux Snooze or the Noow Yawk Times.
It is only 45 minutes, so enjoy.

I have deliberately stayed out of the Mancow/water-boarding fiasco because I just can’t stand obvious propaganda and PR moves. I don’t care what side of the pretend left/right divide it comes from, it’s just stagnate BS one way or the other.
But today, someone wrote something about this insipid little sideshow that absolutely reflected what I thought the day after it happened. And my take on this whole thing isn’t going to be what you think it is going to be. They seemed to suggest it was all staged, a "put-on" for the publicity.
Whether it's the Democrats, OEN or Moveon.org, wherever progressives congregate, the elitists seize the leadership and water down the issues, shut down any effective protest, and sell out at the first opportunity.
As Paul Street writes in his article:
"What Exists of a Popular Left..."
April 20, 2009 - No Responses
Bruce E. Ivins – was a microbiologist and vaccinologist at the USAMRIID who supposedly committed suicide on July 27th 2008 rather than face criminal indictment, trial and possible execution for the Amerithrax investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. After what is reported to be an exhaustive investigation, the source of the high-grade anthrax was traced back to a Pentagon lab, which implicated Ivins as the prime suspect in 2006. This six year investigation involved supposedly hundreds of suspect investigations. Why was there such a rush finally to resolve this case before George Bush left office? Might the resolution be needed to avoid a new administration and Attorney General to look into the faulty evidence and conclusions or assuming the investigation under new leadership? Even FBI director Mueller identified the investigation as “embarrassing” and “poorly handled.”
Why the 911 hijackers were not Al-Qaeda or Taliban and why the detainees will be our future bin-Ladens – 9/11/08
When the CIA released 18,000 pages regarding MK-ULTRA, it represented the cleaned version of what was destroyed by Richard Helms CIA director in 1973. These programs were supposed to have been abandoned under the claim that they were never able to succeed in the DELTA application of any of the 150 projects created. However, there is no conclusive evidence the CIA actually succeeded in controlling a person’s actions through mind control. The documents destroyed would have included: JFK (Oswald) , RFK (Sirhan Sirhan) and other DELTA successes. To this day Sirhan has no knowledge of his actions.
Prologue: The Premise
Take yourself back to that day when you watched or listened to the attack on America; the day that everything changed. Remember where you were, who you were with, and most importantly, how you felt.
Think about the last few events of that day; how the news of the Pentagon being hit by something was followed almost immediately by the unexpected complete collapse of the South Tower (WTC 2). Remember how we had barely recovered from that shock, one that we were forced to watch in horror over and over again, when the unspeakable happened; the North Tower (WTC 1) fell in exactly the same way at an eerie and almost supernatural speed as plumes of smoke and steel columns flung across city blocks.
Now I want you to put yourself in that very moment, once again, and prepare yourself for the missing final act that never took place and yet may still be one of the most telling and condemning pieces of evidence in the ongoing unofficial investigation of 9/11.

It's been over 100 days. I am now prepared to accept the apologies of those who worked to put Obama in the White House.
Remember your effusive praise, how you touted him as being different than Bush? You accused people of being a sectarian, and out of touch with reality, if they refused to vote for him. You said he was leading a progressive movement - the beginning of a bright new era of politics.
You owe an apology to me and everyone else that spoke the truth about Obama. We said he would continue the Bush policies. We told you so.
And by the way, I read that guys post this morning and I watched it go away very quickly from the top post... if I can figure out who he is by what you put up, so can Rob...
Some News and requests
1. I have posted the Rob Kall response provided by Rady, please review.

Who will Stand Up To America and Israel?
Well, if you will bring me the Rothschilds and Rockefellers, and the Bilderbergers and a thousand or so of their financiers and an assortment of their politicos from around the world whom they bribe and blackmail to hold the innocents of the world in thrall, and if you will be so kind as to lend me a machinegun and enough ammunition, in about two minutes I will make a pretty decent fist at it.
And I will do it for nothing and with a clear conscience at ridding the world of the most dangerous pack of vermin to trouble the planet in millions of years.
Are you on?
Now, that’s a sentiment I could live with.
How about you?
Over the past week, a lot of outright lies have been told about OpEdNews and me personally. Here's an accounting of what really happened.
by Scott Creighton
Once proud bastions of critical thinking and informed dissent are quietly transitioning into not so subtlety regulated echo-chambers for “topic positioning” of progressive discourse. It used to be that progressive and liberal “alternative” sites would pride themselves on the free and open exchange of ideas. That was before the run-up to the election and the muting of the far left that followed directly after “their candidate” won. It would seem, that the very same people that criticized the right-wing trolls for not being capable of examining the actions of their president, are in fact suffering from the same ailment themselves; blind, submissive loyalty to “party”. The level of hypocrisy is stunning but not unexpected.
Case in point: Rob Kall, Op Ed News
Serious Problems With Jim Hoffman’s “A Hypothetical Blasting Scenario ” Makes His Recent Essay Far From “Plausible”
by Scott Creighton
Jim Hoffman has just published his essay ” A Hypothetical Blasting Scenario: A Plausible Theory Explaining the Controlled Demolition of the Twin Towers Using Aluminothermic Incendiaries and Explosives with Wireless Ignition Means” in time for it to coincide with the new Jones et al piece, “Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe” and quite frankly, Hoffmans work is structurally unsound.

YOU ARE COTO IF YOU ANSWER YES TO THREE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING ITEMS:
- You believe a better name for our “two party” electoral system is the “United Corporate Party of America”.
- You didn’t vote for either Obama or McCain in the last election and instead voted for a third party candidate e.g.… Nader, McKinney or Ron Paul OR didn’t vote at all because your vote doesn’t count anyway.
- You do not believe the official “fairytale” of 9/11. You want a real investigation into what happened that day and know from doing your own exhaustive research that it was an inside job.
- You know our govt. invaded Iraq and Afghanistan for imperialistic and monetary reasons & had nothing to do with 9/11. You also know, for those reasons, the “war on terrors” is a lie.

posted by LaudymsRob Kall sent out a special email to just some OEN members:Cleaning up OEN and Changing OEN Policy on Edge Topics
Most progressive sites refuse to cover 911 truth and more exotic topics, like UFOs, NWO and conspiracy theories. OEN has covered them and it has brought some problems, particularly a crew of unpleasant, negative commenters who attack just about every article published, particularly ones by higher visibility writers. We've decided to clean things up, so we're cracking down on this crew, holding firmer to rules aganst spamming articles and personal attacks and name calling. The goal is to maintain our open forum for discourse-- a forum that this small group has effectively intimidated and turned off.
rady-banned-mr m banned-others and maybe more??what happened to free speach???/
how can a country stand togather when a web site cannot??
banning people from their say-is a reflection of our country--so why does oen news want to be a reflection of our country --the sad shape it is in???-
e mail rob and tell him to stop banning members from having their say-
