TheBigPictureRT 13/2/2013 - Thom's State of the Union speech , Big Picture Rumble - Dick Cheney Was Right about Deficits! , Big Picture Rumble - Ted Nugent is an Idiot


Thom's State of the Union speech My fellow Americans...The State of the Union is strong. Its politicians, however, are stupid and bought off by everybody from Oil Billionaires like the Koch Brothers and Saudi sheiks, to transnational corporations and defense contractors. Tune in for Thom's State of the Union speech. Big Picture Rumble - Dick Cheney Was Right about Deficits! Marc Harrold, "Observations of White Noise...an 'Acid Test' for the First Amendment" & Vince Coglianese, Daily Caller & Richard Fowler, the Richard Fowler Show all Join Thom Hartmann Big Picture Rumble - Ted Nugent is an Idiot Marc Harrold, "Observations of White Noise...an 'Acid Test' for the First Amendment" & Vince Coglianese, Daily Caller & Richard Fowler, the Richard Fowler Show all Join Thom Hartmann The Good, The Bad and the Very Very Rosorialously Ugly! The Good! *New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez ®* Martinez - a Republican - said on Monday night that she would be willing to sign proposed gun control legislation that is aimed at closing the so-called "gun-show loophole" in New Mexico. Martinez told a local blogsite that, quote, "I think I could support it if it stays the way it is, that has, number one, keeping the guns out of the hands of people who don't have any business having guns." A bill to close the gun show loophole has already passed through a committee in the New Mexico state house - and will be taken up by the full state house tomorrow. Kudos to Gov. Martinez - for standing up to her party - and for putting the lives of Americans ahead of gun lobby interests. Revealed - The Tea Party Paid for by Phillip Morris The Tea Party of 1773 was a revolt against transnational corporate power - and its stranglehold on the British government. The Tea Party of today is funded by those very same transnational corporations. So what's happened over the last 40 years? Thom Destroys "Overpopulation" So-Called Expert... Jonathan Last, The Weekly Standard & author, "What to Expect When No One's Expecting" joins Thom Hartmann. Conventional wisdom says that overpopulation is a global threat - that has the potential to wipe out resources - cause widespread famine - and bring our environment and civilization to their knees. Not according to Jonathan Last.

RussiaToday 12/2/2013 - 'Survival of N. Korea regime depends on nuclear weapons' , State of Denial: Pockets not rockets dominate Obama's 2013 SOTU speech


'Survival of N. Korea regime depends on nuclear weapons' The UN Security Council has issued a stern rebuke to North Korea over its third nuclear test - as it held an emergency meeting in response to the test, which was in defiance of international regulations. The organisation says it plans to beef-up the sanctions already in place for the country's previous atomic exercises. China was among those who criticised North Korea's nuclear test. However, war correspondent and columnist Eric Margolis thinks the relations between the two allies are unlikely to sour. State of Denial: Pockets not rockets dominate Obama's 2013 SOTU speech Barack Obama devoted his first State of the Union address of his second term to trying to appease lawmakers and taxpayers, with fresh promises to boost the economy and slash debt and deficit. A further reduction of the occupation force in Afghanistan was also announced, with 34 thousand troops due to leave by next February. But certain sticky issues were notably left out of the speech, as RT's Gayane Chichakyan reports.
