The American GI accused of killing Afghan citizens in early 2010 has pleaded guilty to the charges, his defense attorney says. Spc. Jeremy Morlock of the U.S. Army copped to three counts of murder and other crimes for which the United States Government apologized early this week after Der Speigel, the German news magazine, published photos of Morlock posing with dead bodies as if they were hunting trophies.

On the splash page of the House Committee on Appropriations website (maintained by the majority), the GOP cites Article I of the Constitution. Judging from the behavior of many of the members of that committee, that quote may be the only time any of them ever refer to our national charter.

The SEIU (Service Employees International Union) has a reputation for employing thuggery and intimidation to achieve its many goals. Typically, SEIU's tactics are used against Tea Partiers and bank executives, but this time, the organization has turned its attention to the American unit of a French catering company, Sodexo.

A former top official with the SEIU was allegedly caught on tape during a March 19 forum describing a union-led plot to “destabilize” the country, bring down capitalism, crash the stock market and destroy the American economy for the purpose of redistributing wealth. Commentators are already referring to the alleged conspiracy as a plan for “economic terrorism” as the uproar continues to grow.
