Scahill Would Not Let Her Get Away With It

He said the same thing as Rand Paul: Try him in absentia if you have evidence to present.

As for the son, the word needs to get out a little better about exactly why it is called a "signature" strike.

As Scott Horton explains, the name makes it sound like it's on the up-and-up, as though it is a strike that merely requires the president's signature before it can be executed. In fact, it means we are killing a person because he has the "signature" qualities of a possible terrorist (e.g. a young male who lives in a particular region) even though there is no other reason to believe that he is one.

Maddow is a good solider in the army of EVIL.

after the revolution she can stand at trial with the others or maybe they will send a drone to meet her.

She called his book a doorstop? Stay classy Rachel.

Not Sure But I Think That Meant "It's A Big Book"

But it did seem like a rude thing to say regardless.

"Where have you been?"

"It's alright we know where you've been"

"I am Troll fighter, number one"



Off the cuff and probably already said - Did Maddow just say...

"Are these factual allegations true?"

What an absurd phrasing. She repeated "factual allegations" several times to drive the propaganda home.

What a joke.

Madcow says:

"We are now being told by the Government that Anwar..." blah blah blah - directly involved - blah blah blah - (imply guilt base on ???) blah blah blah - be scared, fear for your life, terrorists are around every corner - blah blah blah.

Seriously, anyone who believes ANYTHING the Govt. says DESRVES to lose their freedom to a trial when accused of a crime - just like Anwar. He may be guilty, or maybe not - but you see, in America you (used to be) innocent until proven guilty by a jury of your peers. Good bye American - Welcome to the machine.

Oh, and "I heard" that Rachel Maddow is a felon, will she receive a drone strike now?

One of the scariest videos posted yet

"He was using his citizenship as a shield"

We the People, Not we the citizen. Bill of rights, not shield.

"He was continuously trying to kill people"

no that is what you do obama.

Even murderers still get a trial, the cops don't chase down murders with missiles they go out and arrest under the law.

This rhetoric is not only war propaganda it is a suggestive proposition to redefine executive power to go to war with any American without a need to prove any allegation.

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

Couldn't agree more

This was really scary, that's why I had to post it.

Habitual liars do one thing well

They lie and lie and lie. They lie so well that it is possible they come to believe their own lies.

We have an installed liar puppet potus that will say or do anything to keep himself at the troth of engorgement.
