Previously sympathetic commentators disillusioned by Obama’s unchecked lying and fumbling were heartened by the uncharacteristic candor coming from Deputy Secretary of State P. J. Crowley late last week — until he was shit-canned…





Obama: Change We Can Believe In?Via Media Roots:

The Obama campaign mobilized one of the largest grassroots movements for a presidential candidate in recent history, and the SF bay area was a hub of support for Obama during election time.

Now two years into his presidency, Media Roots set out to see if people are tuned into their favorite candidate’s actions — and if his actions warrant their support.

Media Roots conducts on the spot interviews with people in Berkeley and Oakland, CA about their support for President Barack Obama.






SupermanAs a product of the public school system in the Great State of New York, this film is well overdue. Everyone, please watch this.

If you attended public school in any state in the U.S. I think you know what I mean.

And if you have kids, please, at least watch at least a minute into this trailer. You will realize the filmmaker’s intent.

The public school education system is BROKEN …. if you’re working within it, please speak out and join the effort to reform it. I knew something wasn’t right as a child in the system, but what the hell do kids really know? Time to make a change,

“Yes we can … but should we?” — Jon Stewart

Politics is often defined as the “art of the possible.” However it should also be defined as “you can’t please all the people all the time.” Especially the ones being idiots on the “ground zero mosque” media shitstorm.

Cory BookerHere at disinformation we are naturally skeptical of politicians, but there are times when you can say that true leadership on a local level makes a difference. With that sentiment, check out Cory Booker, the mayor of Newark, New Jersey. As James Queally reports in the Star-Ledger:

For the first time in more than 40 years, an entire calendar month has come and gone without a homicide in the state’s largest city. It’s been 32 days since a homicide took place in Newark, marking the first time there has been a slay-free calendar month in the city since 1966.

Police Director Garry McCarthy said he hopes to best a 43-day period from March to April of 2008, the longest span of time without a slaying in the city since 1961. Ten homicides have occurred in Newark since Jan. 1, and none have taken place in the South Ward, long believed to be Newark’s most dangerous section.

I will contend the reason this has happened is because of overturning the “old”: old ways of doing things, due to an entrenched political establishment, which is best-documented in the Academy Award-nominated documentary Street Fight:
