McClellan is finally getting it right about how the Bush administration has gotten it wrong. Illuminating the gaslighting being perpetrated against the American people

Former Press Secretary Scott McClellan now thinks telling the truth is important even though Republicans suggest he is disloyal and should have taken the lies to his grave. Really. They really suggest this. Watch the associated press video which lasts 1:50 seconds.

In some ways this is good therapy. It is time, in the United States for the truth. The gaslighting which has been going on for 7 years is finally being exposed. Do Americans have the stomach for the truth or do they still want to be lied to? I sure hope they have the courage to face up to the truth. These hearings are a form of national psychotherapy which is good for the national soul.

Bush is funny but the American people are not - We elected him and the joke is on us.

It is hard to believe that this passes for leadership. The interesting thing is that Americans think he is funny and his malaprops and confusion seem to be endearing. It is scary to think this man's finger is on the nuclear bomb button and he was entrusted with the authority by our congress to send our nation into an illegal, immoral, and disastrous war.

We as a nation, need to face up to the healthy shame most of us feel because we were gullible enough to elect this man to lead us. While he is funny, we elected him, and the joke is on us. Not many people around the world find our stupidity amusing, and we must do better in the next election in 2008. Are Americans up to the challenge of righting the wrongs of the last 8 years or will we be hoodwinked again by the gaslighting techniques of the politicians, the religious quacks, and media wonks?

Video lasts 1:03

Bush administration lied to American public about reasons for Iraq war according to Senate Intelligence Committee report.

Here is the reason why smart and sophisticated people listen to Jon Stewart's The Daily Show for the news albeit satire, because he is one of the few who actually alludes to the important news in our society.

The Senate Intelligence report came out on June 5, 2007 and basically concludes that the Bush administration lied and distorted the facts to rationalize reasons for the war misleading the American people into a trillion dollar fiasco. Two of the three networks, CBS, and ABC didn't mention this most significant finding at all on their news broadcast, and NBC only gives in cryptic coverage.

It seems indeed ironic that you have to watch a satirical comedy program to get any significant news in the U.S. Makes you seriously question the role of the corporate media in our so-called democracy where propaganda and entertainment passes now as the evening news, and comedy gives us the truth.

The video lasts 4:24 and is worth watching.

Scott McClellan, former Press Secretary to Bush, finally confesses and tells the truth.

Scott McClellan

Scott McClellan is a huge disgrace for shilling for the President and the Bush administration. He will now make millions off his book saying that the Bush administration was spewing propaganda rather than being straight with the American people. This is nothing new, but it does validate those who have been saying this for some time. Talking Points Memo TV gives highlights of many of Scott's press conferences. It is this kind of mystification that makes Americans crazy. The video lasts 9:30 and is worth watching if you are interested in this kind of stuff.

The think tank counted up the lies and said there were 935 and rising.

Harry Shearer is a clever man. Watch his music video of 935 lies. It's entertaining, funny, informative and will make you laugh and cry.

Bush, Cheney, Rice, Powell, Rumsfeld, Pearle, Wolfowitz pulled such a con on the American people, and a dysfunctional congress went right along with the bullshit being beholden to corporate America which put them into office and stood to profit in the trillions at our expense. How long will it take Americans to get pissed? How long will it take before they are smart enough, and humble enough, to admit they've been had?

Shame leads to two coping mechanisms: hiding and rage. When will Americans get tired of hiding and the rage start to emerge? As gas starts going to $5.00 per gallon, and more and more Americans get thrown out of their homes, and more and more middle class Americans get bankrupted by health care costs, the proverbial shit may start hitting the fan.

The video lasts 3:24 and is worth watching.

Missing child now a prostitute

Another Onion satire that can make you cry as well as laugh.

Age progression techonology indicates a missing run away child is a prostitute by now. Today Now with Tracy Gill. Video lasts 2:49

Age-Progression Technology Indicates Missing Child A Prostitute By Now

The evil hubris of Condoleeza Rice jeopardizes the mental health of the United States and the well being of people around the world

It really makes you wonder about people who refuse to admit they are wrong, seek forgiveness, and repent. Congressman Wexler confronts Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice on her lies and the lies of the Bush administration which lead our nation into pre-emptive and immoral war leading to millions of deaths, and trillions of dollars of debt.

It is telling that she gets so defensive and indignant. This kind of defiance indicates a lack of humility which is troubling in people of such great power who in their arrogance perpetrate so much evil onto the world. It is this kind of toxic hubris which jeopardizes the mental health and well being of a nation. She continues to insist that the intelligence community was in agreement about the threat of Saddam Hussein and yet Hans Blix and the U.N. inspectors could find no evidence while physically present and investigating in Iraq what the "intelligence community" was alleging fueled with bogus and false information disseminated by manipulative charlatans like Akmed Chalabi. The video lasts about five minutes and is well worth watching if you are interesting in the arrogance of power.

Things you won't see on the Corporate Media going on in Iraq in our name

This video clip shows American soldiers killing a wounded Iraqi man. It lasts about 30 seconds.

Another video of American soldiers killing unarmed, wounded, Iraqis. No wonder PTSD and mental health problems are so high when soldiers return to "normal life." These soldiers are acting in our name. We should all be ashamed of ourselves.

American "Air Support" kills people indiscriminately. US Army Specialist Darrell Anderson explains Army policy in Iraq: "Anderson describes the escalation of violence against unarmed civilians: "In April, they told us, "In a crowded area, if one person shoots at you, kill everybody." Anderson explains the rationale from the officers: "They [members of the crowd of people] are letting them [the person or persons firing at the U.S. military] attack you. They're no longer innocent if they're there at the time of the crime..."
