Every time I see Santorum's smug mug I want to fit my fist into it. I won't, but I'm sure tempted. The paranoid horseshit he's spreading is dangerous to the nation.

Notice in the quote from Santorum's "congratulations" email to his supporters -- he blatantly lies about the US Constitution's Supremacy Clause. The truth is the exact opposite of what he claimed.

This is your Republican Party.

Some serious flip-flopping here that I didn't know about. That Santorum is speaking in the Senate is yet another sign that the Republican Party is truly a hopeless case.

I've been hearing that "they're busing illegal immigrants to the polls" crap all my life having grown up in a GOP family. Delusional and paranoid as it sounds in the old days nobody actually believed it, it was kinda like Cubs fans saying "Wait til next year!" . Nowadays they are so paranoid that they actually believe their own agitprop lies.

"It's very important for us to know about this location," he told me in Spanish. "It represents hope for a lot of people. There are still families looking for their sons and daughters for five, six years now."

The number of people who remain missing in Mexico due to organized crime is estimated to be as high as 25,000. In the state of Baja California, Ocegueda has been leading the search for five years. His own son Fernando was kidnapped from their home in 2007.

The mass grave at La Gallera was revealed by Santiago Meza, the man known as El Pozolero or “the stew-maker.”

Meza worked for drug cartels including the Arellano Félix Organization in Tijuana during the height of the city's drug violence. His job was to dispose of bodies. He did so by liquefying them with chemicals.

Ted Cruz doesn't think conservatives lost the election.

The debate within the Grand Old Party has begun to take shape along familiar lines. Some call on the party to moderate its positions; others insist it only needs to articulate them more forcefully. Then there are those who darkly foresee the day the American people, having chosen the path of disaster, get their comeuppance.
......
"More than a few conservatives say, well, if the voters want to bankrupt our country, let them suffer the consequences," he said. But the real problem, Cruz said, was that "Republicans were curled up in the fetal position, so utterly terrified of the words 'George W. Bush'" -- for whom Cruz once worked, as a campaign adviser and in the Justice Department -- "that we never bothered to contest" Obama's economic arguments. The "utterly ridiculous notion" of a "war on women" also went unchallenged, in Cruz's telling.

DALLAS -- Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent was arrested early Saturday morning for intoxication manslaughter after a one-vehicle accident that killed teammate Jerry Brown.

Irving police spokesman John Argumaniz said the accident happened about 2:20 a.m. Saturday in the Dallas suburb. Brent was speeding when the vehicle hit a curb and flipped at least once, Argumaniz said.

Chinese man divorces and sues his wife for being ugly

Jian Feng was confused after his wife gave birth to an 'incredibly ugly' baby
He accused her of cheating and she admitted to spending £62,000 on plastic surgery
He then claimed she got him to marry her under false pretenses

Earlier this year, Jian Feng, divorced and sued his wife for being ugly. He won his case and was awarded a little under £75,000 by the judge, Fox 31 reported. Mr Feng said he took issue with his wife’s looks only after the couple’s daughter was born. He was shocked by the child’s appearance, calling her ‘incredibly ugly’ and saying she looked like neither one of her parents.

Jian Feng's wife before surgery

Jian Feng's wife after surgery

Hmm...only slightly conflicted about how to call this, I can see where the man would think he had a right to know what his wife really looked like before having children with her. Still it does seem incredibly shallow to divorce her over it, and then asking for damages over it was just spiteful. I have to assume this means he has basically disowned the child as well, the article doesn't say.

I'm not sure his daughter is really the "ugly" one in this story, and with a father this hung up on appearances she is probably better off without him in her life.

Our friends in Pakistan are at it again
Karzai Implicates Pakistan in Suicide Bombing That Hurt Afghan Spy Chief

The suicide bomber who tried to assassinate Afghanistan’s powerful new intelligence chief came from Pakistan and the attack was organized with the help of a sophisticated foreign intelligence service, President Hamid Karzai said Saturday.
...
The audacious assassination attempt on Asadullah Khalid, who had been leading the National Directorate of Security since September, has taken an important figure in the war against the insurgency out of action. It took place on Thursday when an unidentified attacker smuggled a bomb into a meeting at a guesthouse in central Kabul with Mr. Khalid.
...
The bomb, which the Afghan authorities said was concealed around the attacker’s groin, left Mr. Khalid seriously injured.

The Taliban claimed responsibility, but Mr. Karzai said the attack was too sophisticated to be the work of the Taliban alone.

“This is not the work of Taliban,” he said. “This is a very professional and well-engineered attack. Taliban are not able to do this, but there are strong and skilled hands involved in the attack.”

That's possible but so far, aside from his lawyer's claims, there's no evidence that he's been mistreated or treated any differently than any other prisoner. And yes, the Kos kidz regard him as a hero.

Why are whistleblowers the bad guys?

The charade of what Sweden, England, Australia and the U.S. are doing to persecute this hero is everything we all were taught we were against.

Assange is just a human and so I take offense to the tone of this article that seems to denigrate someone who is in a Samson vs. Goliath fight for his life--just because he had the moral compass to let us all know the truth.

My most charitable assessment of Manning is that he's mentally ill.

The Obama administration was not impressed

The US mission to the UN in Geneva responded to Mendez on January 27 2011. It said that the US government "is committed to protecting human rights in our country and abroad, and we value the work of the special rapporteur".

In a later letter, dated May 19 2011, the Pentagon's legal counsel told Mendez that it was satisfied that Manning's treatment at Quantico had been fine. "Though Private Manning was classified as a maximum custody detainee at Quantico, he occupied the very same type of single-occupancy cell that all other pretrial detainees occupied."

Unlike the insane wingnut right, the far left moonbats at least have enough sense to understand that Obama is center-right by global standards. With some exceptions, they were also smart enough to wait until after the election before they turned on him, lest they help put a theocrat business shill in the White House instead.

The Obama administration was not impressed

Did that surprise you?

Bradley Manning's lawyer is David E. Coombs. He's also a Lieutenant Colonel in the US Army Reserves.

Ah, I stand corrected. I thought she was part of his legal team.

Would be pretty crazy for a defense attorney to be blogging a case like that. Coombs doesn't have the time for that either I'm sure.

Whilst you are being corrected, you might want to look at the date of the link I posted in #76 and the date of your reply in #81

Your link #86 was 10 months before the addendum to the special rapporteur's report I linked to.

re: #70 Killgore Trout

What pisses me off about that is the fact they go bashing Sweden for "Being a patsy to the US."

Dudes, Sweden has been a very independently thinking ally. They have not shied from criticizing us. This is a good thing. They are the Batman to our Superman.
