    WTF is that idiot babbling about?

  • Rush Goofbaugh

    You can see the FEAR in his eyes… The same fear that I see in scotty’s eyes… the DICKtator or ELSEanator. The FED and Wall street are the problems. They should all be shaking in their boots.

  • Dolmance

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful if Americans had one tenth of the guts and intelligence that the young people of Egypt, Tunisia and Libya have demonstrated these last few weeks?

    If it’s live, why is the translator 2 seconds ahead?

    Head of parliamant, Mahmoudi, ordered the military strikes. He does NOT want Gadaffi’s son to take over. Mahmoudi represents US’ interests.

    Al Jazeera cut the rant right when Qadaffi was pointing out that some forces want a bearded cleric in power!

  • NadePaulKuciGravMcKi

    The controlled media all cut off his speech at exactly the same time.
    Muammar al-Gaddafi to release the contents of State Secrets File.

    Libya is even more remarkable than Egypt because the military was not anywhere near as allied with the people already.

    Libya truly was starting from a position of almost certain deaths and yet they are persevering and actually winning over some of the security forces that would never have been believed to turn on Gadhafi.

    That is courage that can’t even be measured.

    Hey, Goofbaugh, what do you make of this?

    The video was live at the time – the translation came later.

    Sandra, what do you make of this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXiTuxqRk2Y

    I saw the same thing in Madison… People not really understanding what the real threat is… But they are learning. Nothing like a DICKtator to rile up the people… Even some of the baggers are getting it. Wis. Republican party has on its platform… “Abolish the FED”! Hey when the repuks and baggers understand… change is not far behind. When we stop fighting amongst ourselves… change will happen.

  • Jaimie11

    Oh boy, do I hope you’re correct. “Abolish the FED!” When that becomes the rallying cry, count me in!

  • Johnny Warbucks

    Wow, this guy is batshit crazy! That speech on Al Jazeera today has go to go down on the annals of history as the craziest thing ever pulled by a dictator. The guy is actually telling the people he is slaughtering that he is protecting them from the West. Then, he threatens them in the most vicious things. Immediately, he accuses the youth of having done all the damage because they are on drugs followed by “drugs are bad for the heart.” ROFL! But not half as bad as the machine guns and bombs he’s using on them. You can’t make this shit up! In the meantime, the bastard has hired mercenaries from all over Africa and is having innocent civilians cut down with machine guns while the West wonders if the reports are true. It’s sheer madness! I hope his people pull a Cecescu on him. It’s the least the piece of shit deserves!

  • Johnny Warbucks

    Yes, it is. Particularly, when you consider the slaughter the madman is carrying out. It’s absolutely horrific!

  • Johnny Warbucks

    I don’t think it’s fear. The guy is batshit crazy. What you see is the look and rants of a demented man. I watched the entire speech (all hour of it) as it was being aired on Al Jazeera and I’ve never seen anything like it in my life. And I should know, I spent 21 years being forced to stand in the sun in 90-degree weather whenever Castro delivered one of his half day long rants.

  • Johnny Warbucks

    If you have the stomach to watch the whole thing, I suggest you do. You’ve never seen anything so crazy in your life. And funny if he weren’t slaughtering innocent civilians while he pulls that shit.

  • Hassan i Sabbah

    Day 78 of the Revolution. Benghazi has fallen. Back in Washington, El Presidente Obama is doing the Mexican two-step.

  • Hassan i Sabbah

    Kindly kiss Gadhafi’s ass in private. It’s disgusting. Everyone take note: This is the kind of whack job who follows Ron Paul.

    That’s what I thought.

    Probably because they all know once it started they had to win or get caught and murdered by the state anyway. They have nothing to lose.

    Reports have been coming in from people in Cairo, Egypt, Libya, that no one really knows who these protesters are. That they do not represent the views of most people. And that people suspect the US is involved, especially that the Muslim Brotherhood is another US “invention”. And now the Muslim Brotherhood is calling for a fatwa on Kadaffi? What the hell is this?

    And, the most ridiculous thing, last night, Greta Van Sustera, Fox, was IN PROCESS of an interview with a man on the streets in Libya, saying everything was completely calm and that the US was not getting real press info, hearing instead of total anarchy, which wasn’t true. This is actual breaking news…

    But, Fretta actually CUT HIM OFF, in mid-sentence, to proceed to a story on Justin Beaver, or whatever the child’s name is.

    Consensus is that we are not getting the whole truth about these “uprisings”. Medvedev of Russia is saying they will lead to complete anarchy and destruction of mid-east, should not be encouraged. And now insiders are saying this ultimate goal is to destroy the Mid East oil market and give it to China. Great.

    I am so incredibly sick of these globalists. And why are the Muslim people so incredibly stupid and ignorant, allowing their stupid selves to be used, over and over, by the people that blow them up? What incredible morons.

    Apparently Mubarak refused to use his country as a human nuclear shield, and also resisted the eugenics program as presented by the globalists. (Which is one reason why the people in Egypt look so healthy, compared to us).

    Wake up people. The globalists will work through any political party, any country, any stupid Muslim morons. And I am getting real sick of the Chinky-com leaders, who can go straight to the hell of their ancestors, as far as I am concerned.

    And yeah, I can’t see how Israel survives this. No idea.

  • Rush Goofbaugh

    No argument about being batshit crazy. When you are ready to call out the national guard… your full of fear… even if you hide it well.

  • Anonymous

    I find that hard to believe. Why would they try to incriminate themselves?

    CIA Director William Colby:

    “The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.”

    The author says ANI. What does that stand for? Where is the link for your quote regarding that article?

    This is a growing consensus! BTW, Who the hell would use Twitter as a news source?
