McConnell Raised Big Bucks From Foreign Defense Contractor Probed For Bribery

In the wake of the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has been quick to denounce a bid by Democrats to stop foreign corporations from pouring money into U.S. elections, claiming current law already bars such spending.

Ron Paul: After ‘CIA coup,’ agency ‘runs military’

"There's been a coup, have you heard? It's the CIA coup. The CIA runs everything, they run the military. They're the ones who are over there lobbing missiles and bombs on countries. ...

A Special Message to Joe Lieberman from His Roommate at Yale

When Joe sold out Gore and the Democratic Party in Florida after the  2000 election (blessing all military votes without regard to proper electoral procedures), I lost faith in him. Since then, he has proven himself to be a sell-out to the Bush Administration's War on Iraq, to the Bush nominations of reactionary justices to the Supreme Court (where were his threats of filibuster then?), and now to the fiscal interests of Big Pharma and Big Insurance.
