    The whistleblower is the enemy. Hence the 35-year jail term imposed on Private Chelsea/Bradley Manning for being the big WikiLeaks source, an extremely long sentence
    That's flat-out CT. They're claiming that his sentence is the result of the suppression of whistle-blowers and not because he broke laws.

    The MSM always seems to take one side, and hardly understands or gets the right ideas of what the event(s) are about.


    Youtube is a great place to find a lot of these "V-bloggers" however knowing our government they've probably deleted a bunch by now - at least the ones they don't agree with.

    That is the reason for the fall from last year.. but the US was already low due to other factors. Things like media ownership laws and actual number of owners, corporate influence on media and so on. And you cant deny that this aint a problem in the US.

    Well that is the remnant of racism of the 1700s-1900s. Africa is a MASSIVE place..



    but because of when maps were designed back in the day... we could after all not have the black continent be bigger and more important than the mighty European empires

    And on the map.. where is Greenland?!?=!?!?!?! Racist bastards!

    Obama's America. Spying on the media. Put the IRS on anyone who is critical. Obtained to himself the ability to have anyone secretly imprisoned or assassinated. Ban adverse media from press conferences and the White House. Make everything a classified secret. There is nothing "liberal" about Obama. He is an authoritarian, not a liberal.

    Of course he's authoritarian. He learned well from his predecessors.

    It's about time someone else figured out he's no liberal.
