Feds Arrest Anti-Islam Film Maker; and exciting cop-demonstrators fight video, and WAY MORE to keep you up to date!

From the Smoking Gun

The producer of the controversial anti-Islam film “Innocence of Muslims” has been arrested for violating terms of his probation and is set for an appearance today in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles.
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, is scheduled for an initial appearance in the courthouse where Judge Christina Snyder sentenced him in June 2010 following a bank fraud conviction.

[UPDATE: Citing Nakoula’s “lengthy pattern of deception,” a federal magistrate this afternoon ordered him held without bond for alleged probation violations, including making false statements to his probation officer and using aliases. The judge rejected a plea from Nakoula’s lawyer, who argued that the convicted felon’s life would be in danger at an L.A. lockup due to the facility's large population of Muslim inmates. Nakoula will remain in custody in advance of a probation revocation hearing, the date for which has yet to be scheduled.]

Time to Revoke Religion's Tax Exemption for Electioneering?

You could burn in hell for voting for Obama!

The separation of church and state does not seem to apply to the Catholic Diocese of Springfield, Illinois, as a Bishop was caught on video espousing that a vote for Democrats may condemn a person to hell by placing their soul in jeopardy.

Bishop Thomas John Paprocki decided to weigh-in with his thoughts on politics from a religious perspective. He warns:
My job is not to tell you for whom you should vote. But I do have a duty to speak out on moral issues. I would be abdicating this duty if I remained silent out of fear of sounding ‘political’ and didn’t say anything about the morality of these issues.
He says multiple times that he is "not telling you who to vote for", while hinting who you should not vote for, and then says:
You need to think and pray very carefully about your vote, because a vote for a candidate who promotes actions or behaviors that are intrinsically evil and gravely sinful makes you morally complicit and places the eternal salvation of your own soul in serious jeopardy.

Why Mitt Romney May End Up Wishing He Never Picked Paul Ryan

Romney's leaked video disaster may end up being a trifle compared to what Ryan did to his candidacy.    Pissing off Older people who love Medicare the way it is....(Alternet)


 Phony Registrations so close to the Election!!!
BREAKING NEWS:  Republicans cheating on an election again.  Caught.  No choice but to fire the culprit, linked to Romney and even back to Bush days.

Better than watching Football!  Angry Spanish crowds fight riot cop gets drop-kicked more than once (no penalty!)  WATCH IT!

Demonstrators from the Spanish anti-austerity protest movement, the 'indignados', converge near parliament in Madrid on Wednesday night, a day after clashes broke out between police and protesters. Police use blanks and batons to disperse a few hundred people remaining after the main demonstration finishes.    CLICK and Pick your Side!

Could this happen if 'austerity measures' also come to the US government after an unlikely  (Romney/Ryan austerity) election?


This month, Republicans block yet another bill.. This bill would have established a $1 billion jobs program putting veterans back to work caring for federal lands and strengthening local police and fire departments...


Too cautious:  GO BIG, Mitt!

Charles Krauthammer, conservative columnist
Washington Post  (exerpted, click for entire column)

When you’re behind, however, safe is fatal. Even his counterpunching has gone miniature. Obama has successfully painted Romney as an out-of-touch, unfeeling plutocrat whose only interest is to cut taxes for the rich. Romney has complained in interviews that it’s not true. He has proposed cutting tax rates, while pledging that the share of the tax burden paid by the rich remains unchanged (by “broadening the base” as in the wildly successful, revenue-neutral Reagan-O’Neill tax reform of 1986).

But how many people know this? Where is the speech that hammers home precisely that point, advocates a reformed tax code that accelerates growth without letting the rich off the hook, and gives lie to the Obama demagoguery about dismantling the social safety net in order to enrich the rich?

Romney has accumulated tons of cash for 30-second ads. But unless they’re placed on the scaffolding of serious speeches making the larger argument, they will be treated as nothing more than tit for tat.

Make the case. Go large. About a foreign policy in ruins. About an archaic, 20th-century welfare state model that guarantees 21st-century insolvency. And about an alternate vision of an unapologetically assertive America abroad unafraid of fundamental structural change at home.
It might just work. And it’s not too late.
