Roland Burris: Reid Blasts Blagojevich For Making Pick

Roland Burris From Huffington Post: Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid released a statement today in response to reports that Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich will nominate Roland Burris to fill the vacant Illinois Senate seat, calling the move "truly regrettable" and "unfair." Earlier this month, all 50 members of the Senate Democratic Caucus called on Blagojevich to step down and under no circumstance make an appointment to fill the seat.




Former New York Jets Head Coach

I appreciate the opportunity that Woody and Mike gave me for the past three years as the head coach of the New York Jets. The organization has terrific people and I wish the Jets nothing but success. The time and effort invested by the coaches and players was tremendous and I value that beyond words. We worked hard to achieve two winning seasons out of the past three. I regret that we could not reach our goals for this year. I will always appreciate the passion and support of the fans as our focus was trying to build them a championship-caliber foundation and team.

What do you think he's trying to say here??

FARC-EP give Full support to Rafael Correa and its governmen

FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia), the same terrorist organization that kidnapped Ingrid Betancourt, gave their full support to Ecuador's President and Columbian documents support this video.

From the article:

"BOGOTA, March 2 (Reuters) - Colombia said on Sunday documents found in a camp in Ecuador where Colombian troops killed a top guerrilla boss showed ties between the FARC rebels and Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa, including contacts about political proposals and local military commanders.

FARC rebel commander Raul Reyes was killed inside Ecuador in an army operation that has fueled tensions between Washington ally Colombia and neighbors Venezuela and Ecuador, where leftist leaders are fiercely opposed to U.S. proposals.

Police Commander Gen. Oscar Naranjo said documents found in computers belonging to Reyes showed contacts between a Correa government minister, Gustavo Larrea, and the FARC commander to discuss political proposals and projects on the frontier.

"The questions raised by these documents need concrete answers," Naranjo said. "What is the state of relations between Ecuador's government and a terrorist group like the FARC.""

Correa's ties are to be questioned as anti-human rights at best. He's also closely linked to Venezualan President Hugo Chavez.

Zbigniew Brzezinski Says Joe Scarborough Is "Stunningly Superficial"

This is a classic find by The Young Turks, and has Zbigniew Brzezinski totally embarassing MSNBC's Joe Scarborough regarding the peace talks and Arafat's involvement. Zbigniew Brzezinski asserts correctly that the peace talks stopped under George W. Bush, but Joe says that Bush had nothing to do with the matter of the terrible mid-east situation. A total error at the least. Watch Zbigniew Brzezinski take on Joe in this video.
