Yeah Time, we should have left him there after the war was over because that's what the assholes in the goparty of Hypocritical assholes want. Next?


Riiiight.."odios and repugnant" Greenwald is "not" a Libertarian.. so quit saying that..

The GG fanclub is evidently ashamed of his libertarianism and are trying to rebrand him as anything but..

Libertarians are poisoning the left and trying to undermine it.

Libertarians are posing as liberals and trying to RATFUCK the left.Their primary goal is to undermine the Democratic Party and hand elections to Republicans.Their strategy consists of...
1) ingratiating themselves with the progressive media
2) Pushing the meme that Democrats are just as bad (or worse) then Republicans
3) Dismissing Racism as "identity politics"
4) Promoting far right wing politicians as "true progressives"
5 convincing disgruntled progressives to vote 3rd party or not vote at all
6) Attack traditional Democratic Voters & their issues


At a talk given the day after the 2010 election — one that was a disaster for Democrats — “progressive” writer and civil liberties lawyer Glenn Greenwald gave a talk at the University of Wisconsin, and expressed the hope that Democrats might suffer the same fate in 2012.

...the idea that taking money from the Koch brothers for a one-year drug-decriminalization project shouldn’t be disclosed each time Greenwald attacks progressives while defending the Kochs’/libertarians’ pet projects—as when Greenwald defended Citizens United, much to progressives’ confusion, or when Greenwald attacked our article in The Nation about the Koch-funded libertarians leading the anti-TSA union campaign—is plain wrong and ridiculous. Payoffs and influence-peddling usually come in more subtle forms than payments marked “BRIBE.”


Glenn Greenwald Unethically Taped Witnesses While Working for Matt Hale, White Supremacist.


"Mr. Hale, for his role in the shootings, was sued by a number of survivors. This included a case filed by two teenage Orthodox Jewish boys. And another case filed by a Black minister. These people were selected by Benjamin Smith because they looked like the religious/ethnic minorities they are.

And Glenn Greenwald called them 'odious and repugnant' for suing his client--"


Only it's Greenwald who is "odious and repugnant".. whatever he's posing as.. here he is now trying to keep himself relevant and suppressing the vote in 2012.. when he "expertly previewed the 2012 election"..

And, the NYT on this..

Bo on Boeing: Barack pets his dog Bo during a flight to Hawaii

Proud "Swampy BOGger" here!

Oh they hate the Barack Obama Group on DU. Cannot handle a group where they can't go in and cheap pot shot the President.

Wetlands Gardens & Bog Gardens

"Are you unfortunate enough to have part of your property on a bog or marsh or to have a swampy ditch or large area of standing water? If your answer is yes, then your biggest landscaping challenge is going to be to change your perspective. Bogs, marshes, and swamps are all vibrant ecosystems that serve an essential environmental function, and you have become a custodian one of these treassures.

Besides being home and breeding grounds to many species of birds, fish, insects, mammals, and rare plants - bogs, marshes, and swamps are one of nature's primary water filters, removing pollutants and excess nutrients, and controling errosion. The quality of many lakes and some streams is heavily influenced by the quality of the bogs and swamps that feed them"

Delightful BOG


thanks for the heads up on that book, josh. Luke Harding's "The Snowden Files". nm

"U.S. troops in Afghanistan ‘so happy’ Sgt. Bergdahl released by Taliban militants"


To ensure troops stayed on the lookout for Bergdahl, commanders had installed a screen saver on every American soldier's computer in Afghanistan that carried a photo of the captured sergeant as a reminder

"I always wondered what happened to him," said Gloria Goomtam, 37, a US Army specialist. "I'm so happy for him."

But Bergdahl, held by insurgents for nearly five years, was never spotted by American forces or rescued in a raid.

Instead, his freedom was brokered by Qatar in a swap that required the United States to transfer five Taliban detainees out of the Guantanamo prison.

The deal has sparked an outcry among some lawmakers that President Barack Obama sold out to Taliban "terrorists," but Goomtam said the agreement was worth it.


"My wife told me that a soldier had been freed and I knew who it was,"said Mashburn, a member of the 101st Airborne.

That Bergdahl's release came at a price, with five senior Taliban figures allowed to leave the US prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, posed a difficult dilemma, he said.

"Letting them (Taliban militants) go, I don't want to see that happen. At the same time, I would do anything for that soldier, " he said.


Bergdahl's release was reassuring for troops as it showed the US government had worked relentlessly to secure his freedom, he said.

"Whatever your beliefs, if you think we should be here or we shouldn't be here, we have someone, an American, in captivity and we've got to get him. I think everyone can agree on that," he said.

"Someone was out there pushing for this. I'm thankful for that."

Welcome Back, Sgt Bowe Bergdahl

OOOPS! “I’m saying if Reverend King had gone to New York instead of going to prison in Birmingham,

no one would have said he didn’t stay in Birmingham to face the music.”

That's the Whole point, nutter. Dr King wasn't a fucking coward.

“Instead he’s in a country that does that to its own citizens routinely,” Kornacki countered. “He’s in Russia!”

Kornacki for the win!
