    He could have executed this recent executive orders anytime during the last 3 years of his Presidency – no blue dogs or republican congress to blame for blocking needed votes - but he not only waited until his re-election came up but also we had to see the 1% law enforcement agencies beating American Citizens in the street

    Dear Oakland PD,

    I am a nurse with over 1000 hours in police ride-along experience.

  • Go find out for yourself...please.

    Agreeing with people is easy, finding the facts out for yourself is hard. As I was in a protest marching about police brutality on the community.  (This was just a couple of days before a protester that was an Iraq war Veteran was critically wounded in a protest in Oakland).  I saw protesters get separated and then blocked off and just before the riot police had boxed in the protesters (out side the eyes of the media) the police did not announce that they were going to arrest or trap the protesters.  They were just going to move in and b

  • What Our TV Says About Us

    In Australia, their police drama currently is Cops L.A.C. (Local Area Command), in Britain it is Law & Order UK.  In Canada the popular police procedural is Flashpoint, while in the United States, the one that jumps out is NCIS Los Angeles.  

    What is consistant about all four of these dramas is the underlying philosophy.  We are the good guys, they are the bad guys.  It is our mission to get them in their place by any means necessary, including killing them.  All four of these dramas have killed bad guys.

  • Who Hit Hoffa

    To be explained using the Shevell Asssociated Transport and Eastern Freight Ways connection to North American Van Lines in 1966 when the Kryder Estate disappeared, and who influenced Hoffa in the assembly of, and decimation of, the Central States Teamsters Pension funds, as compared with the crashing of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers Trust in 1930. Also to be explained are Kryder assets at stake when Hoffa was declared legally dead 7/30/1982.

    But first, the scene of the crime- the restaurant where Hoffa's abandoned car was found in 1975:

  • Who Threw the Rocks & Bottles at Oakland Police?

    I'm pretty sure I know who threw the rocks and bottles at the Oakland "Police" during the OWS demonstration.  My guess is that the "police" were partly made up of the CIA/ FBI.  I would bet that a CIA operative threw the rocks and bottles (if any were thrown); the FBI looked on and knew what was happening, just like they both did in the assassination (Murder?/Coup d' etat is a better word) of our sitting, duly elected President, John F.

    If you're republican you are not even relevant. 

    If your democrat forget it! 

    If you're a Democrat that calls yourself Progressive forget it! 

    And if you even so much as caucus with the Democrats you can forget it and that goes for you Tammy Baldwin of the Green Party.

    NO MORE, NEVER AGAIN!

    ITS LEGITIMATE THIRD PARTY OR BUST FROM HERE ON OUT!!

    Loved your show today...

    I was wondering if you had any information on Occupy Lansing, MI? My friends and I can't go there (too far-we live near the Ohio border) but are interested in sending food or supplies to the occupiers...send the info to pj12161@hotmail.com

    thanks in advance

     

  • Sorry PCCC, There is no such thing as a "bold progressive" that belongs to the Democratic Party.

    telliottmbamsc's picture

    A Progressive that belongs to the Democratic Party is just another run of the mill filthy democrat co-opting the "progressive" label for marketing purposes.  The fact that PCCC lets themselves interviewed by the Ed Schultz show proves they're fake progressives.
