The never-ending Clinton hunt continues
Still Eying Clinton Pardons
Grand juries resume probes on clemency
A federal probe of ex-President Bill Clinton's pardons, stalled by the Sept. 11 attacks,
has been restarted and is on the "front burner," outgoing U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White said.
In the last three weeks, grand juries in Manhattan and Westchester County — shut down
after the Sept. 11 attacks — restarted their engines, sources said.
Nothing is more important than fabricating a case against Bill
It's more important to them than finding bin Laden.
It's more important than getting out of the Bush recession.
It's more important than anything. They have to get Bill Clinton.
It's "front burner" for them.
It's the most important thing in the lives of the Republican party.
Recognize this woman?
She's Victoria's Secret supermodel Karen Mulder.
Her sister had her committed to a psychiatric clinic in France to help deal with what
Karen says has been a lifetime of rape and sexual abuse by a member of her family.
She says the abuse started when she was two and she was repeatedly raped into adulthood.
Why do I bring this up?
I know there are people out there struggling with demons of all
Somehow, I got very, very lucky and am remarkably demon-free, but I realize
that's entirely just good luck on my part and that could change at any time.
But for those of you who are going thru some kind of hell, I just
thought I'd make
the point that even the beautiful and glamorous people aren't free from life's tortures
and other people are struggling just like you are, some even have it worse.
This is kind of a "hang in there" message I'm trying to send.
Hopefully, the demons that
might be chasing you aren't as bad as what Karen Mulder has endured, but almost everyone
has some torture that they have to get thru. (the families of the WTC attack come to mind)
So I just thought I'd drop the reminder that if you hang in there
and fight back and
try to have a few laughs every day you can still win in the long run.
I know it's not that easy, but you have to keep fighting.
Don't give up.

Clinton wants Senate to hurry with new anti-terrorism laws
President Clinton urged Congress Tuesday to act swiftly
in developing anti-terrorism legislation before its August recess.
"We need to keep this country together right
now. We need to focus on this terrorism issue,"
Clinton said during a White House news conference.
But while the president pushed for quick
Republican lawmakers hardened their stance against some of the proposed anti-terrorism measures.
The next time some common ditto-monkey says "Clinton
tell them "Go to hell, Ditto-Monkey" then tell them to read this story.
Democrats are good for the economy.
Republicans are bad for the economy.

up for Buddy
by Jeannette Walls of MSNBC
The Clintons are under attack from a new group: animal rights activists.
the wake of the death of the Clintons’ chocolate lab, Buddy, the head of
has written a sympathetic but stern letter to the Clintons. Buddy was hit by a car while
the Clintons were out of the country, but PETA president Ingrid Newkirk wrote that she
was concerned because no one had taken “adequate precautions” to prevent Buddy’s death.
“We understand that Buddy is the second Clinton family dog to be killed in traffic,”
Newkirk wrote. “Please let him be the last.”
I don't like to use this kind of language, but in this case it's called for:
Fuck you, PETA.
The story I read (if we can trust the whore press) was that construction
doing repairs on the Clinton home and one of them let the dog out.
How you sluts & whores can turn that into "the Clintons don't care
about their pets"
is beyond belief, so just do the right thing and go fuck yourself, would you?
Last night, on the way home, just on a hunch, I decided to drop
by the PO Box to see if I had any mail.
I told myself if I had any mail I'd do a shot of fine tequila before I went home.
Lo and behold, the box was not empty, so I set out in search of
Someone suggested I try Thank Allah It's Friday's, but all they had was Cuervo.
Down the street they have a fancy sports bar, so I tried there - nothing but Cuervo,
Beaten and dejected, I headed home without any fine tequila.
I wish I lived in fabulous Las Vegas.
Oh, speaking of Vegas, I got an e-mail from Mary Carpenter, the
Hard Rock Cafe lady.
She said they've gotten in several new tequilas that I need to try.
Anybody want to sponsor a weekend in Las Vegas?
My goal is to go six times this year, so send in your offer/reservation early to pick the best weekend.

Subject: Where's the SPIN on Charles J. Bishop?
Hey BC -
Where are the pundits now that we need them?
This Charles Bishop kid was clearly a pro-Taliban
nut job just like that looney from Marin County.
But Chuck the suicide pilot hailed from the conservative Tampa area.
So clearly, applying the same pundit-think that was used to savage California liberals, Bishop was
driven to his insane act of allegiance to Osama bin Laden by his Republican environment, right?
It must have been the intense intellectual, emotional
and spiritual oppression that he suffered
in his politically conservative community that pushed him over the edge. Anyone can see this.
So again I ask, where are the pundits now?
Rush? Chris? HELLO?!?!?!?
Q, the answer is clear - Mr. Rove doesn't want that angle played up,
and the media won't print anything Mr. Rove hasn't personally approved.
It was goofy as hell to say Walker was Taliban because he grew up in
Marin County, and your point proves that.
But as long as the goal of the whore media is to protect and prop up the Unelected Fraud,
we won't get anything resembling honest news reporting from a profit-oriented news service.

Subject: Your Great Depression idea
I can't believe you can expect the average 3-digit
IQ-holder to believe that Bush caused the
current recession after being in office a year, and then turn around and blame the Great Depression.
I believe that one, not both, of those circumstances are true.
First, I agree that Coolidge ignited the Great
Depression through the tremendous expansion of credit.
However, Hoover took that Depression and ran with it, embarking on deficit spending, doubling the
income tax (sound familiar?), and caused worldwide panic. Voila, the Great Depression.
However, given the current state of affairs, it's
neglectful to say that Clinton didn't have any part in the
recession, or that Bush had a major part. After all, the steep downward slide began well before the
election, in March of 2000.
Peter, you don't have to believe me OR your lying eyes.
You can say Bill Clinton fell into it and that Bush is just one unlucky bastard.
Say that if you want.
You can tell yourself that Clinton didn't really accomplish anything
with his economic plans,
and you can tell yourself that a tax cut for the super-rich didn't hurt our economy.
You can also tell yourself that it's just coincidence that every Republican has had a recession.
I don't have to explain anything - the facts speak for themselves.

I'm happy to contribute. Your readers should be
more generous, keep bugging them for contributions.
The treehouse is always a welcome sight and I know it takes a lot of work, in spite of what you say.
I really do think you are making a difference these days.
Your honesty and commitment to Democratic ideals is rare.
I'm going to DC in April to do some lobbying,
I may stop by DNC to discuss some BartCop ideas.
Wish I were as eloquent as some of the other treehouse members, but I'm working on it.
Kudos on the trip reports, I always enjoy them.

Headline in TIME Magazine:
ENRON SCANDAL MAY TAINT DEMOCRATS
hmmm...what is wrong with this picture?
What's wrong with this picture is TIME is a whore magazine.
This is the same money-driven bunch who said bin Laden didn't affect the news very much in 2001.
The truth is, Enron gave some cash to the Democrats after they hit the
iceberg so TIME, Rush,
Laura and could say "Enron gave to both parties."
It's a slick trick, trying to make Bush's best friends a contributor
to both parties.
Will they get away with it?
The press wants Bush to shine and the Democrats are too scared to take action.
"He's busy making history, but doesn't look
back at his own, or the world's.
Bush would rather look forward. It's the way he's built, and the result is
a president who operates without evident remorse or second-guessing."
-- Newsweek, allegedly a news reporting magazine, gushing praise on a fraud
they are SUPPOSED to be keeping in check with unbiased reporting.
...but you ask any common ditto-monkey to identify the "liberal
and they'll scream "TIME & Newsweek are biased for Clinton."
Hi Bartcop, Well, its another year, so keep pounding on Smirk.
If you are getting into the truth about polls,
you probably need this:
Essential part is this: "S.L.O.P."s (Self-Selected
Opinion Polls) are favorite devices of interest groups
to manufacture a poll with a pre-determined outcome: One "samples" only members of the an interest group
who already share your desired views. e.g. include a poll in a magazine that is distributed as an in-group
benefit of membership in an formal organization. Thus the National Rifle Association would include a
"questionnaire" along with a fund-raising letter or else in one of its issues of "American Rifleman" mailed
to its members. All "telephone-in" opinion surveys, so beloved by national and local television syndicates,
are also "SLOPs".
In other words, send all the mail out mail back,
call us, call in, write in and other "take some action to contact us"
polls are SLOPS. Bet they didn't interview each and every reporter in DC or in the country, now did they?
And where did they get a sample of reporter phone numbers?
Only Way To Watch a Football Game
by Rude Rich
After I woke up from fainting in front of the full fridge, I wandered over to the buffet.
Mind you we had the box to ourselves at this point, about 45 mins. before the game.
We had real hot dogs, boiled to a tee...delicious chile sauce, ribs, garlic potatoes*,
cheesesteak subs, chips, popcorn....it just kept coming.
The only thing missing was some Chinaco.
The strange case of Zacarias Moussaoui:
FBI refused to investigate man charged in September 11 attacks
September 11 took place amid a virtual stand-down of the security forces which permits no innocent explanation.
The circumstances of the terrorist attacks deserve the most serious and conscientious investigation. Both the
Bush administration and the Democrats and Republicans in Congress have rejected any such probe, suggesting
that to question the role of the FBI, CIA and other intelligence agencies is unpatriotic.
But the facts which are known so far point
to the conclusion that officials at the highest levels of the US government
that a major terrorist attack was under way and made no serious effort to prevent it. The political motive can be inferred:
they permitted an attack to go forward - whether they knew its full dimensions or not - in order to provide the necessary
pretext for carrying out a right-wing agenda of military intervention abroad and attacks on democratic rights at home."

Voice from Abroad: Give greed a chance
by Linda Deak as seen on Online Journal
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Scalia insisted on the votes not being counted in Florida
with his statement "the counting of votes…threatens irreparable harm to petitioner Bush,
and to the country by casting a cloud upon what he claims to be the legitimacy of his election."
Obviously, Scalia wanted Bush to be president
whether he won the election or not. Now look how big
Scalia's cloud has become. It not only covers Bush. It covers our whole country. It covers the Supreme Court.
It is a cloud full of foreboding and it will not go away. The Democratic Senate is right to scrutinize each judge
nominated by Bush very carefully. Look what careless appointments did to our democracy.
