Code Pink's Medea Benjamin Interrupts Obama's Speech With Poignant Questions; Everyone Else Silently Awaits More of Obama's Lies

Quite an illustration. One person in the crowd shows the ability to think critically, and respond appropriately to a sociopath at a podium.

The rest of the crowd sits silenty; sheepishly awaiting their Minister of Truth's speech to resume.

Whatever your opinion of Code Pink, you must applaud Medea Benjamin's willingness to challenge the Emperor, especially on the foreign policy issues she poignantly highlights here. Powerful.

She proves my point...

That Americans EVERYWHERE are coming to a solid "middle" ground.

A common sense "middle" FREE from labels that divide us and a place where big government is seen as the evil empire.

POWER to the States!

That's exactly what I mean.

She is clueless about economics. All of those issues are derived from someone that thinks there are free lunches. If those people had to provide value and receive a fair market value for the product or service that they provided they would immediately become libertarian. Medea gets to travel all over the world, at who's expense? She is living in La La land. But I love her courage and desire to make change.


since when is government protection courage?

Then what happened

Okay. Then what happened? I presume His Majesty proceeded as though nothing had occurred.

When pundits from the left and right hate you, you must be doing something good in this world.

How many need to be murdered before they call for impeachment?

They would be (correctly) calling for Bush's impeachment already.

Without getting into a web

I find unnecessary, I will say that I saw the first interview Adam did with Madea before he came to know her more. He is at odds with her on many issues, but the war/drones/global police issue brought them together in activism.

Take that for what it is worth I guess. To me, it's kinda like Rand Paul using Hannity to promote his message. I doubt Hannity and Rand hang out and have BBQ's on the weekend.

Kokesh is current news

I report you decide.

Are we not allowed

to befriend folks that don't agree with us entirely?

Cockroaches hate the light of publicity

Thats why they have people escorted out of the room for asking tough questions.

The way I see it

All she did was reframe the narrative. Now it's "Look at what poor Obama had to go through." instead of IRS targeting, Bengahzi, Fast and Furious, etc.

CP isn't the independent organization they pretend to be.

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

I saw the Medea Benjamin

I saw the Medea Benjamin interview on Huffington Post. The funny thing about HP commenters is they virtually all work for the government and government contractors. Thus all the disparaging comments against Code Pink.

Thank you for posting this

Glad someone on the Left has the big picture in view. Kudos to Medea Benjamin.
