Florida Republican Proposes Obama Lynching



One can only hope that not all Tea Party Republican candidates are crazy. But seeing this gives me pause. I'm talking to everyone out there, but especially in Florida.

Fueling the fire of the adage, every family has its nuts, the Tampa Bay Times reported this the other day:

ST. PETERSBURG — As Americans honored the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday, a Republican candidate for Florida House District 68 said President Barack Obama should be hanged for war crimes.

"I'm past impeachment," Joshua Black wrote on Twitter. "It's time to arrest and hang him high."

You'd think with all the negative press this has brought about, the Florida Republican Party would officially call for this man's dropping out of the Florida House District race. And this would be a unanimous call.

But it's not. A few Florida Republicans have voiced "concern" over statements like this. Really? Just some concern.

Evidently the Secret Service is taking this crackpot seriously. They already visited with him about his making threatening statements.

Following the "concern" voiced by a few Republicans, Black took once again to the airwaves, tweeting:

Hours after the tweet, Black defended his comment. Obama should be held responsible for ordering a drone strike that killed a U.S. citizen overseas, he said.

"He should be executed for treason," Black said. "I think the appropriate punishment is death. They killed Benedict Arnold. (Obama) shouldn't be allowed to kill Americans without a trial."

Well, even that wasn't enough. After the offensive statements of justification above, Mr. Black went onto FaceBook with this:

Hours after the tweet, Black defended his comment. Obama should be held responsible for ordering a drone strike that killed a U.S. citizen overseas, he said.

"He should be executed for treason," Black said. "I think the appropriate punishment is death. They killed Benedict Arnold. (Obama) shouldn't be allowed to kill Americans without a trial."

Had enough yet? I hope the state of Florida, the Republican Party in particular, has.  It's time they distance themselves from wackadoos like Joshua Black. It's okay to disagree with the President, but calling for a public lynching is something that deserves a closer watching. Who knows what this dude's capable of doing? And who knows how many more there are like him. Maybe we'll find out when they hold the election.


McCain Calls Rodman An Idiot For Doing What He Himself Did



Oh, don't we always love the pot calling the kettle black stories -- especially when John McCain doing the name calling? This war hero who named names to his captors (I'm not judging, just reporting) has recently returned from interfering with Secretary of State John Kerry's peace negotiation in Jerusalem. For Kerry, it was official business. He was carrying out official foreign policy.

So what does McCain do? He hurries over there on an unofficial capacity, forces his way into meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and totally kills any potential deal. Kerry came home empty handed. A failed mission. But the reasons why could be attributed to McCain, Lindsay Graham and Wyoming Senator John Barrasso showing up and fighting against Kerry and the US mission he was on. I call it treason. You can read about it here: The Three Stooges, McCain, Graham and Barrasso Commit Treason In Israel.

Evidently when someone other that McCain and his cronies talk to diplomatic representatives from other countries, it's not okay. But when it's kooky Dennis Rodman, it's name calling time for the semi-senile senior senator from Arizona. He says Rodman is an idiot. Really. He's of lower intellect. Is that a racist remark? How come Rodman's still a name 10 years after he's left the NBA. Can you name 10 others who are still in the mainstream media coverage that long after retiring? Dennis is shrewd and perhaps even smart. Not sure those attributes fit McCain any longer. Gramps has really lost it.

Of Kim Jung Un McCain says he participates in unspeakable cruelty and he possesses nuclear weapons. Wait a minute. Is he talking about Kim Jung Un or  Benjamin Netanyahu? Ask the Palestinians how they've been persecuted. Is he anymore unspeakable than the North Korean dictator? I'm all for Israel. Just not for it's hawkish leader who's tried to interfere in American diplomacy in the middle east, Syria and Iran to be exact.

Here's McCain playing Tonio, the clown from Pagliacci. The two faced-traitor McCain gives a dazzling performance. Golden Globe worthy if not the Oscars.


The Three Stooges, McCain, Graham and Barrasso Commit Treason In Israel


three stooges

Secretary of State John Kerry has just wrapped extensive three day talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu regarding a foundation for peace talks between the Palestinians and the Israelis. These were authorized, official talks, ordained by the individual countries themselves.


(Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday the Israelis and Palestinians were making some progress in peace talks, though there was still a chance no accord would be reached.

This all  comes despite anti peace talks carried on unofficially by three warmongers, Senators McCain, Graham and Barrasso from the United States who UNOFFICIALLY crashed the peace talks and tried to submarine and sabotage the progress made by the US Secretary of State. The three GOP stooges willfully and intentionally undermined the official work of the US Secretary of State. Under a broad interpretation of their mission, that borders on treason.


How often does a U.S. Senate delegation visit a foreign country, during a visit of a high ranking State Department official in order to make their opposition to the official U.S. position known?  Has it ever happened before?  And does the fact that we are talking about Israel make it OK?

The answer is this has never been done before and that it's not okay. We have a President. He sets foreign policy. Not the three stooges.

These three US Senators had no official business in Israel. Their unofficial purpose was strictly political, to interfere with any progress Sec. Kerry could make. Their interests are in keeping war-like conditions going in the Middle East to justify their lobbyists' interests in that region.

The Middle East is a complex situation. And working toward a solution in bits and pieces is the only way to go. There will be no grand peace without making smaller concessions on each side. So the US has gone to its strongest ally in the region, Israel, to begin the progress. While McCain, Graham and Barrasso stir the pot of hostilities and fear, claiming the biggest issue is Syria, the three stooges forget that we're already in talks with Syria -- talk that have resulted in continuing destruction of chemical warfare agents.

Kerry's doing Obama's bidding. And Obama sets our foreign policy. These three out of touch senators are helping destroy any potential progress. Interfering in the President's official policy making, damaging our standing and giving aid and comfort to the enemy is treason. These stooges better watch their step. Our national security is fragile enough without unauthorized interference. And seeing the three stooges behind bars pounding rocks was one of my favorite episodes. Maybe it's time to do a reboot.


Bradley Manning Sentenced To 35 Years In Military Prison


Bradley Manning

They're covering it right now on MSNBC. He is eligible for parole, good conduct & time served. He was knocked down a rank (why would this matter?), dishonorably discharged and loses all military pay, pension etc.

Pfc. Bradley Manning, the soldier who leaked hundreds of thousands of secret government documents, was sentenced by a military judge Wednesday to 35 years in prison.

The sentence was imposed by Army Col. Denise Lind. Manning will be eligible for parole.

Manning, 25, has said he was disillusioned by an American foreign policy bent on “killing and capturing people” when he released the documents, including battlefield reports and diplomatic cables, to the anti-secrecy site WikiLeaks in 2010.
