The CIA Director will be John Brennan.
Norman Pollack in “Architect of Terror” points out some of the dimensions of Brennan’s oversight (familiar territory already to him): armed drones, targeted assassinations, rendition, black holes, subsidies to domestic fascist groups for breaking up "radical" rallies, and other “cloak and dagger” sadism.
Pollack also writes: “In Obama, the Agency, along with JSOC, has its impressario, cheerleader, and now tactical adviser, rolled in one.” Read below the fold...

Stop talking about Kucinich and the olive pit. Forget about the ride on Air Force One.
Kucinich has positioned himself to plunge a stake through the zombie heart of the arch enemy of American well being, The Federal Reserve Bank.
WE HAVE GOT TO HELP HIM AND PAY ATTENTION. The Bank Mafia of America has captured the minds, hearts and souls of almost all of our amoral leadership in the administration and Congress who have to a grotesque degree stopped watchdogging our rights and needs for a stunning amount of time now.
Abandon all hope that Obama or the legacy Democratic Party will rally to save Americans from economic terrorism. In fact, trust that they will rally to enable the economic terrorists. Read below the fold...

Elena Kagan, according to James Petras: “She would likely favor your indefinite detention if you support the right of Palestinians (“terrorism”) to struggle against the Israeli occupation…” He stresses how, also, she would seriously support Obama’s “police powers” which are beginning to eclipse those of Bush, still to the incredible denial of his apologists.

So, I had an ugly encounter with a family member yesterday. Here's the short version:
Her: So I heard this on NPR yesterday /insert Republican propaganda/.
Me: That comes from the Heritage Foundation. And it's factually untrue. Do you know that?
Her: What makes you smarter than NPR? We give them money, you know. They're Liberal! /indignant pose/
Me: Well, actually, they're not anymore /litany of facts about Heritage, NPR, Diane Rheem, Terry Gross/
Her: Fuck you, you fucking DFH! I make more money than you!

By David Swanson
No one disputes that Jay Bybee's name is at the bottom of memos that were, and to some extent still are, treated as laws which legalized aggressive war at the pleasure of a president and a variety of acts of torture. For many months the House Judiciary Committee has had two excuses for not impeaching Judge Bybee, even while proceeding with the impeachments of a judge for groping and another judge for petty corruption. The private excuse has been that impeaching Bybee would be opposed by Fox News. The public excuse has been that the Justice Department has not yet released its Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) report on the crimes of Bybee and his former colleagues.

Deval Patrick’s likely Senate pick raises ‘serious concerns’

We need a HR 676 co-sponsor to primary this jerk. Read below the fold...
