The nation's top military officer warned yesterday that the transition to a new American president will mark a "time of vulnerability" as the United States fights two wars, and he said military leaders are already actively preparing for the changing of the guard.

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Navy Adm. Michael G. Mullen, said the U.S. political transition will be "extraordinarily challenging," particularly as the military is engaged in Iraq and Afghanistan and faces interference in both countries from Iran.

Truthers Running for Congress

Catch the Terrorists!
Ensure truth seekers are running for office in your state.

The current Congresspeople are no better then Hitler's enablers. They are not merely 'incompetent', they are complicit in the murder of 1 million plus Iraqis and 3000+ US soldiers, complicit in the 9/11 coverup, complicit in the looting of our treasury and the destruction of the Constitution.

It is imperative that they be removed from office and tried for their crimes.

What if 9/11 truthers ran for Congress- not just Bob Bowman and Carol B., but 435 truthers in every state and district. Nobody would have to quit their day jobs as this could be an internet/ volunteer movement a la 9/11 truth and Ron Paul's campaign. We could generate internet noise until the MSM was forced to cover us.

What do you think?
A. Crazy idea- we should leave politics to the politicians
B. Great idea- let's ask 9/11 blogger and every other 'end the war- stop the fascism' site to post a link
C. Hell Yeah, I'm going to run
D. other- explain

Gravel Steps Up

He might not be 'our candidate', and he might not have the calm persuasiveness of Ron Paul, but Mike Gravel let's the world know where he stands. Check him out in this Huff Post article:

WHY HILLARY SCARES ME
By Mike Gravel

During one of the debates I mentioned that my fellow Democratic candidates scare me. Hillary's speech last week to the Take Back America conference gives me yet another reason to be afraid.

In an indignant voice she decried the Bush administration's ''stunning record of secrecy and corruption, of cronyism run amok. . . It is everything our founders were afraid of, everything our Constitution was designed to prevent.'' Actually, our Constitution grants Congress the power to prevent these ills but Hillary and her colleagues weren't up to the task.

Our founders' legacy did not stop Hillary from voting for the Patriot Act and then supporting its renewal in 2006 despite revelations that the government was using it to infringe on the very liberties that our founders held sacred. Where was her commitment to our founders when she voted to gut our habeas corpus protections?
