News Bits and Bites


by Oly Mike

Robert S. Becker has an homage to Ron Paul at OpEdNews.com:

Since Rep. Ron Paul of Texas is that rarest of Republicans --

a war critic who's both rational and prescient
describing our careening, imperial foreign policy, let us openly address his probing questions (italics) Friday on the House floor.

In defending Wikileaks disclosures, Paul proclaims what should never be forgotten (but is, every day):

Just as with the Vietnam War, the Iraq War was based on lies. We were never threatened by weapons of mass destruction, nor al Qaeda in Iraq, though the attack on Iraq was based on this false information. Any information which challenges the official propaganda for the war in the Middle East is unwelcome by the administration and the supporters of these unnecessary wars.

Number 1: Do the America People deserve to know the truth regarding the ongoing wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen?

-->Meanwhile, Ron Paul also has a piece at OpEdNews Assange has given us a gift.

I am going out on a limb and asserting that Paul is not speaking for the republican party on the war and Wikileaks.

Also, here's a kicker also from OpEdNews.com: Mastercard and Visa are joining Paypal and not transferring funds to Wikileaks. But if you want to move some money to the Ku Klux Klan, Mastercard and Visa are willing to be of service. Read that one here.

You can buy that ceramic cutie at the KKK website and charge it on your credit card! It's $24.95 and add $10 if you want the lighted eyes option.

Hard to know where to start deconstructing this mess.
