As you all know Senator Edward "Ted" Kennedy was buried in Arlington Cemetary on Saturday. But did you know he almost caused a "brokered" Dem Convention in 1980? Kennedy came into the Democratic convention at Madison Square Garden in New York City with 1,225 delegates to Carter's 1,981 and 122 uncommitted. Kennedy's only chance to wrest the nomination from Carter, who had enough delegates to win, was to pass an "open rule" motion. Read the rest. As we know from the 2008 election the gap between HRC and BO was much closer going into the convention, despite the efforts of Michigan and Florida and the Dems magically awarding Obama delegates from Michigan out of thin air. Just sayin'. So, on this somber weekend, YOU CAN THROW BRICKS! Start with NEW This George's Roundtable member LIZ CHENEY and throw them hard enough to bounce off and hit GEORGE WILL too. Throw them REALLY HARD and bounce them off to DARTH CHENEY on FAKE NEWS. The usual suspects you've seen and heard all week will blanket the other shows. Of course check out the BTV Alerts and Updates and the alternative voices we have every week. The Brick TeeVee crew wonders what liberal Senator will take up Ted's place as the "Liberal Lion"? Sheldon Whitehouse? Sherrod Brown? Bernie Sanders? An unknown to us now who breaks through? Rest in peace now, Teddy. We're still here. Fighting. Like you did.

MORE INFO HERE: What's the Danger of Swine Flu Vaccinations? The average quantity of squalene injected into the US soldiers abroad and at home in the anthrax vaccine during and after the Gulf War was 34.2 micrograms per billion micrograms of water. According to one study, this was the cause othe Gulf War syndrom in 25% of 697.000 US personnel at home and abroad. (3). You can find this table of FDA analyses from the Gulf War lots on The Military Vaccine Resource Directory website (4) These values were confirmed by Prof. R. F. Garry (5) before the House of Representatives. Prof Garry was the man to discover the connection between the Gulf War syndrome and squalene. According to his findings, the Gulf War syndrome was caused by squalene, which was banned by a Federal Court Judge in 2004 from the Pentagon´s use. (6) ~ As seen on p. 6 of this EMEA document (7), the Pandremix vaccine contains 10,68 mg of squalene per 0,5 ml. This corresponds to 2.136.0000 microgrammes pr. billion microgrammes of water, i.e. one million times more squalene per dose than in (4). There is any reason to believe that this will make people sick to a much higher extent than in 1990/91. This appears murderous to me.~~ So far the use of squalene has been banned by the FDA in the US according to Der Spiegel (9). However, this may not last long (10). ~ My advice: If you are forced to be vaccinated against the harmless swine flu (H1N1) – demand a vaccination with the AstraZeneca nasal vaccine MedImmune (8)– thereby avoiding squalene side effects. -Dr. Anders Bruun Laursen @ Global Research, August 20, 2009 clapping.gif


We reported about Whole Foods CEO's John Mackey and his WSJ op-ed on health care a few weeks ago. Now Yahoo Finance reports (last Tuesday), "The CtW Investment Group, a part of the Change to Win federation of unions that advocates on behalf of workers' investments in pension funds, said in a statement that it is calling on the Whole Foods board to remove Mackey as chairman and find a new CEO. "Mr. Mackey attempted to capitalize on the brand reputation of Whole Foods to champion his personal political views, but has instead deeply offended a key segment of Whole Foods consumer base," CtW Investment Group's Executive Director Bill Patterson said in a statement." Well, THAT didn't take long! Go to BOYCOTT WHOLE FOODS for more info.

David Bender will be with us this weekend to fill in for Bobby.This week, we’ll be taking a look back at the legacy of senator Ted Kennedy, one of the longest-serving and most influential men to ever serve in the US Senate. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse will stop by to tell us what it was like to work with the liberal lion. Eric Boehlert from Media Matters will be with us to talk about some of the craziest lies coming from the radical right about healthcare reform, and he’ll help us determine what is fact, and what is fiction. We’ve also got investigative journalist John Nichols with us to talk about the need for Eric Holder, as well as president Obama, to get tough and actually prosecute the individuals responsible for torturing detainees.

    Stacy Summary: What say ye? I note in the ‘emergency control’ over internet story, this paragraph: “Probably the most controversial language begins in Section 201, which permits the president to “direct the national response to the cyber threat” if necessary for “the national defense and security.” The White House is supposed to engage in “periodic mapping” of private networks deemed to be critical, and those companies “shall share” requested information with the federal government. (”Cyber” is defined as anything having to do with the Internet, telecommunications, computers, or computer networks.)“ So, the emergency powers would extend to personal computers as well as the actual internet? Bill would give president emergency control of Internet @ c|net Barney Frank says HR1207 will pass @ youtube
