Tea Party hero, Rand Paul, after his famous 13 hour filibuster on the drone issue, has apparently had a change of mind. When using drones for political gain and generate buzz around his name in the Senate, yes drones are evil. But if you’re say, suspected of robbing a liquor store, well it’s time for some BOOM! Then Judge Napolitano gets in on the act. Hmm… what about drones for people in front of microphones delivering double talk and lying about things they had said in the past? Cenk Unger from The Young Turks breaks all the foolishness down for us.
Yup, you read that right. Jon Stewart tears the IRS a new one for specifically seeking out right wing government “patriot” groups to audit and basically says that the tinfoil hat folk have had their views just about totally vindicated.
As Stewart puts it, there’s not much more to say other than – “What the f**k? The right wingers were right.”
Check out the always brilliant Glenn Greenwald completely school Bill Maher on the nature of US imperialism, coupled with Maher’s ever-insistent fear-mongering over Islam.
In a very rare occurrence, Maher’s usual loud-mouthed and knee-jerk reactive retorts are DOA as it actually seems that Greenwald’s getting through Maher’s US-Imperialist/Almost-Islamophobia shell.
Yes, it’s Beck Week on Political Pwnage. Or is that Beck Weak? If I could analyse the bus-sized chalkboard I would, but I can’t, so I won’t. Even the master himself looks confused at points unsure of what his conspiracy doodles mean. Try to decipher the noise and if you can, let us know. We are still head scratching about exactly what he means.
Glenn Beck makes running Political Pwnage easy. When you are lacking for content merely put his name into youtube, filter the last week’s videos, and there’s sure to be some blathering that fits. And here we have Glenn Beck’s address given at the last NRA convention. Beck feels he like he was adding to the annals of “I have been to the mountain top” but really he just comes off as a fire and brimstone conspiracy theorist preaching demagoguery to the choir. He doesn’t just feel it, he claims he’s ‘picking up the torch of Martin Luther King’ as he attempts to weave quotes of the great man of ‘peaceful protest’ with disgusting themes of violence and conspiracy. Fear Mongering as if America is singly focused on a mission to “take ‘er guns” ending by declaring that the words of Jesus are actually the words of Glenn Beck and the will of God is to fight for gun rights. Why then, did FOX fire you Glen?
