      Ryan Grim and Robby Soave react to breaking news that former Secretary of State Colin Powell has died as a result of complications from COVID-19. Powell had previously been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer that hurts the body’s ability to fight infections.

      A distinguished career, distinguished by lies profitable to the Military Industrial Complex.

      Corporate America consists of totalitarian entities laser-focused on short-term greed.

        I was wondering when someone would remember his part in My Lai.

      Colin Powell could have been a hero by standing up to the Bush/Cheney corporate MIC administration, but he chose poorly. He won’t be remembered for much outside the false statements he made under oath. Meanwhile, millions died so that we could control oil.

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

      to war criminals everywhere.

      He made money on AOL from the get go, and AOL was nothing if not a haven for child porn and distribution.

      His stock in trade passed down to his son who perhaps played a bigger role turning the FCC against us using

      bots for cover the way the interests at hand used his father and himself to bedazzle the rubes.

      abominations like GHWB and My liar will slide into their graves and history with the big facts left undiscussed.

      well played.

        IMO he should have been in jail for My Lai. Little vials of city-killing baby powder, or yeast doing a proxy for anthrax at the UN should have had him in The Hauge in front of the ICC.

        History doesn't repeat. We just make the same old mistakes in new contexts.

        Disappointed to see the link to a FAIR article by Bob Parry and Norman Solomon from 1995 discussing the rise and fall of the 96 campaign prospect/book tour while leaving out the meat of the matter.

        I can only attribute that to partisan goals. Or maybe just a blind spot to one of the most overt acts of racism in the 1990’s.

        What turned the Powell campaign prospects off was the declaration of a bunch of hillbilly right wing fringe religious leaders gathering to publicly attest to their absolute resistance to a Powell candidacy.

         

        not worth mentioning?

        history will be a blank page, shortly.

        you don’t have an immune system, no matter what vaccine you did or didn’t get.

          if he didn’t get coronavirus he wouldn’t have died from it.

          The vaccination certainly didn’t work for him.

          I would be happier if the officials who provide information would say it reduces your risk but doesn’t prevent you from getting it.

          Anti-Vaxxers Are Already Trying to Weaponize Powell’s Death

          https://www.thedailybeast.com/colin-powells-vaccinated-coronavirus-death-triggers-anti-vaxxer-frenzy?ref=home

          “His body couldn’t mount an effective immune response to the virus that a normal healthy person would,” Gostin, who is also a Daily Beast contributor, said. “That’s why immunocompromised people have been authorized for third doses. It’s not because the COVID-19 vaccines are a risk to them, it’s because when you get the vaccine your body can’t mount robust protection. That may have been his problem.”

          “People who are elderly with underlying conditions and with weak immune systems are much more vulnerable, even with vaccinations, than others,” he added.

          The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that among the 187 million Americans that are fully vaccinated, there have been roughly 7,000 breakthrough deaths—most of them over the age of 65, in keeping with the trends since the virus came on the scene last year. In comparison, there have been 700,000 COVID-19 deaths among those who are unvaccinated. The CDC also released a study last month concluding that unvaccinated Americans were 4.5 times more likely to contract COVID-19 than vaccinated people, almost ten times more likely to be hospitalized, and 11 times more likely to die from the virus.

          “We know that people with multiple myeloma don’t respond well to mRNA vaccinations. So while any vaccination would have been good for Powell, he would have desperately needed the third immunization. The third time’s the charm in this case,” Hotez said.

            It is all over this web site. You have made it your personal crusade to demonize those that have not been vaccinated.
            This is a perfect example. Instead of realizing there is a good reason why some are not, you come out guns blazing accusing others of weaponizing Powell’s death.

            I repeat THERE ARE GOOD REASONS WHY SOME ARE NOT VACCINATED. Having a depleted immune system is one example. Also, as has been proved by the death of
            Powell, the vaccines do not prevent death, do not prevent catching COVID and do not prevent transmission.

            I know this post will do no good, but I needed to say it.

              I take it you have heard of medical exemptions?

              WSU coach just got fired for refusing a vaccine.  He claimed a religious exemption as a Catholic, even though the Pope is urging people to get vaccinated.

              In my view torturing and murdering fellow sentient beings in laboriatories at the altar of religion of materialistic scientism is wrong and evil. After the spiritual revolution, to which Jesus, Apollonios of Tyana etc. were associated with, the institution and practice of animal sacrifice was largely stopped, until the religion of scientism reintroduced it in even more cruel and horrible form.

              I refuse to take part in the torture and murder of fellow sentient beings by psycopathic “medical” professions, on the pretext of “vaccines” and de facto more monetary profits for the psycopathic and evil Big Pharma. I don’t worship Mammon and the union of Mammon worship and Scientism and State worship, I’m anti-religion guy and declare freedom from those religions.

              Aloha!

          That was when Colin was lying about ANTHRAX!  😉

          Just giving you sheet, OB!

          I actually met Colin Powell in the mid-80s….. not the sharpest crayon in the box!  But he punched all the right tickets to get to the top.

            As in lies from the Bush Administration to start the Iraq War. OK, that does look like a test tube, doesn’t it? There were so many lies swirling around at that time that I can’t keep all of them straight!

      to Florida and their daughter was up here yesterday spreading their ashes on their old homestead.  Neither one of them was vaccinated!
