Excerpt: Below is a joint statement from the two activists:

With all due respect to the President and his supporters, we interrupted the President’s speech at Henninger High School because President Obama has the power to pardon US Army whistleblower Private Manning – a young, conscience driven whistleblower who exposed US war crimes. It is unjust that Manning has been sentence to 35 years in prison, while those who are guilty of torture and murdering civilians walk free.


Well said.

"No one is spying on you" then it hits that there was massive abuse, then its "that was accidental" etc etc etc.

This is one smooth talking politician.

What exactly is this guy responsible for at this point?

  • Gitmo is force feeding people who simply want to die.

  • The war machine is raging.

  • The banks are taking 85 billion a month.

  • Monsanto just got cleared to wipe us out.

Well I guess he is going to sign the TPP soon. That outta be great.

I dont blame the guy for everything, but at least a shred of leadership would be nice once in a while.

"I don't blame the guy for everything, but at least a shred of leadership would [be] nice once in a while."

My sentiments exactly

"Because if that’s true — if indeed he hasn’t been deliberately lying — then it means he has been dangerously, irresponsibly and negligently ignorant of not only the government he runs, but also of the news breaking around him."

"I, of course, don’t buy that at all. I don’t buy that a constitutional lawyer and legal scholar didn’t know that the FISA court is secret — aka the opposite of “transparent.” I don’t buy that he simply didn’t see any of the news showing that spying is happening in the United States. And I don’t buy that he didn’t know that there is evidence — both public and inside his own administration — of the NSA “actually abusing” its power.

I don’t buy any of that because, to say the least, it makes no sense. I just don’t buy that he’s so unaware of the world around him that he made such statements from a position of pure ignorance. On top of that, he has a motive. Yes, Obama has an obvious political interest in trying to hide as much of his administration’s potentially illegal behavior as possible, which means he has an incentive to calculatedly lie. For all of these reasons, it seems safe to suggest that when it comes to the NSA situation, the president seems to be lying."

What a great system we have, eh?

RELAX !!! Everybody needs to just; calm the #$%@ down !!!

There's much more "Hope and Change" on the way.

We all must keep believing that either Hillary or Bush 3

will save us all in 2016.

While Manning is now sentenced to three decades, we are preparing the missiles for Syria.

This war machine is completely out of control at this point. So far out of control that they simply cannot turn back.

So whats it going to be? World government or collapse?

Maybe that REPUBLICAN Hagel will turn it all around,right?!!

Has the country always been this much of a train wreck?
