Julie Hiatt Steele
"No human life should be exploited or extinguished
for the benefit of another."
-- Governor Bush, yesterday, on the subject of cloning
Gee, Governor, how many black men with ineffective,
drunk or sleepy counsel
did you execute so you could appear tough on crime for the Texas voters?
Life is so precious to Governor Bush, he mocked, "Please
don't kill me!"
when doing his Karla Faye Tucker impersonation for Crossfire's Tucker Carlson
He's the most fraudulent ignoramus to ever steal his way into power,
but that's OK, because he's brought "honor and dignity" back to the White House
to pay damages for Japanese deaths
Killer sub was driven by Governor's fat-cat Enron buddies,
the ones he now claims he can't remember
In one of the most shocking cases of abuse of press power, the
Fourth Estate has given the
Unelected Fraud a complete pass on the fund-raising gimmick that killed nine people.
To this day, the GOP-controlled press continues to broadcasting
the LIE that Ken Lay spent the night
in Clinton's Lincoln Bedroom, meanwhile giving out a free pass to Bush and the Enron fat-cats
who killed nine people with their horseplay when they wanted to drive "Georgieboy's new toy."
Why does this happen?
Because a true story about the man who stole the White House won't sell as many papers
as a juicy lie about the best president we've ever had.
That's why the press won't ask about that abortion Bush
That's why the press won't ask about Bush's arrest record.
That's why the press won't ask about Bush going AWOL during wartime.
That's why the press won't ask about the felony Bush did community service to hide.
That's why the press won't ask about the missing trillions from the treasury.
That's why the press won't ask about his lack of qualifications to be president.
That's why the press won't ask about any goddamn thing - because the lies sell better,
and we have a money-driven media run by the greediest of whores.
So what do we have?
We have a man in the White House who didn't earn the title "Mr
His fat-cat Enron buddies got CAUGHT playing with Bush's bathtub toys and killed nine people,
and the American whore the press won't ask any questions and the guilty young Bush boy skates AGAIN!
Heroism, and Julie Hiatt Steele
By Robert C. as seen on DemocraticUnderground.com
And what about Julie Hiatt Steele's bravery, would I be able to rise to that standard? Again, I
would like to think so - wouldn't we all like to image ourselves being that valiant? But the
disquieting and absolutely frightening reality is, that as America endures the 15th month under
rule by judicial coup - as we watch our Constitutional protections erode, indeed, as we watch
the Constitution itself being dismantled - it is possible that many of us may find out soon enough if
we possess even a small amount of the fierce passion for Truth and Justice that Julie Hiatt Steele
has displayed in abundance.
That is why I am going to James
Carville's restaurant on April 27th - to see for myself what a
true hero looks like - to feel her aura, so to speak, and to see if I measure up - and to shake her
hand, maybe some of it will rub off.
Sharon Vows to Keep Fighting
West Bank (AP) - Ariel Sharon on Wednesday delivered a blunt message:
Israel will not pull back until Palestinian militias are crushed.
"He...if Sharon was smart,
...what Israel needs...
don't think that...
...it's not right that...
...what Israel needs...
...Unka Dick!!!! Condi!!
...what's my line again?"
Subject: B.F.E.E.'s Net Worth?
Hey, BC, with all the info about the B.F.E.E.'s
raking in millions here and millions there,
especially in China, can somebody come up with what their net worth is (in $$$$, not human worth)?
John, I imagine anyone outside the BFEE with that information is
due to check in to the Springdale, AR Days Inn right about now.
We know one thing - for the B.F.E.E. to get bigger, they needed
to fix the 2000 election.
Even if that cost them a cool trillion dollars, they're making that back in spades now.
People are asking about transfering their Juliefest
tickets if they can't come.
We talked about it and decided you could transfer your tickets before this Saturday.
For security's sake, we can't have a bunch of last-minute switcheroos, y'know?
Also, Julie is thinking about doing a question-and-answer session,
(which we'll tape)
but to prevent some ditto-monkey from asking an inappropriate question,
we're asking for the questions to be sent in advance.
It's my opinion there's no question Julie can't answer - so fire
Send the question you'd like Julie to answered to email@example.com
and if it's a good one, we'll have Julie answer the question live on camera.
Just between you and me?
I'll bet she'd prefer the tough questions.
That doesn't mean you have to be nasty, but if you're familiar with this incredibly complicated
and intricate bag of who-knew-what-when, I think she'd enjoy batting a high, hard fastball out of the park.
You see, when you're telling the truth and
you have a memory like she does,
you don't get tripped up like that poor, confused Willey woman who can't even
remember which room she was in when Clinton "attacked" her.
So send Julie some questions firstname.lastname@example.org
Polite questions from conservatives and even ditto-monkeys will be answered, too.
In the news...
Ohio Jury Mulls Rep. Traficant Case for second day
In deciding the corruption case of Rep. James
Traficant, jurors must weigh
whether the congressman was the victim of a government vendetta, as he claims,
or if he accepted kickbacks and gifts for his political help, as prosecutors contend.
"There's not one damn bit of evidence
that anybody gave me any money.
...now give me $800."
Wrecking laws that
protect our environment is easy
when big corporations tell you
exactly how to do it.

Bad news and good news
On June 8th, Julie loses her lease on her condemned apartment.
I think part of her wants to stay, even though the place is condemned,
but her landlord's not too happy that the city agreed it needed condemning.
So, for the second time in her life (and the second time since
I've known her)
she's being thrown out of her home and she doesn't even know where she's going.
She's thinking she wants to leave Virginia, her home state of 24 years.
Can you imagine what it's like to walk in a grocery store and hear whispers behind your back?
"Look, it's Julie Hiatt Steele, the lady who helped that awful Clinton monster."
Julie never wanted to be famous. She had a happy life with friends and family and then
a tornado named Willey destroyed everything and now they whisper behind her back.
She lost her beloved paid-for home of 23 years, moved into that condemned apartment
which would shock anybody, especially someone who once had a very nice home.
And now she's getting thrown into the street for the second time.
So, she's going to move again - but where?
The "normal" Democratic bastions, New York,
LA, San Fran etc are too expensive.
I suggested Arkansas, where at least half the people don't hate Clinton, and she has
supporters there, but no close friends. Any suggestions?
OK, that's the bad news, but there is some good news:
YOU PEOPLE have donated $18,450
- so far (much applause)
Some of that has already been spent, and more will be spent before J-fest,
but as Igor said in Young Frankenstein,"Things could be worse."
After all - neither of her legs is currently broken.
Who knows, maybe she'll meet someone at
who has publishing connections
and she can make a deal to get her almost-completed EXPLOSIVE book published
and she could go back to being self-sustaining. Koresh knows she's due some good luck.
So if you own a truck rental company in the Virginia Beach area,
reserve a big truck for the
second week of June, would you? She needs a one-way rental to some Democratland.
Last thing - as bad as the picture is, when you meet Julie in
two weeks (it's that close?)
she's not going to be playing the victim. She's going to be a tornado sweeping through West24.
She's going to be smiling and laughing and bubbling and telling
funny stories to everyone.
She's sharper than a scalpel, and a sense of humor that won't quit.
When you're talking to her, you better listen fast.
You've never met anybody like Julie Hiatt Steele.
It'll be a night to remember.

Little Too Late?
by Gene Lyons
As some warned, it turned out that government by slogan had limited uses.
"Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists," Bush warned last September 20th.
Uncomfortably reminiscent of Lenin's revolutionary dictum "he who is not with us is against us,"
as Dan Balzand and Dana Milbank of the Washington Post recently pointed out,
Bush's rhetoric proved too simplistic to deal with the actual world.

April 10, 1942
The Bataan Death March starts as
the prisoners begin a 65 mile march from
Mariveles to San Fernando. Little water or food were given ot the prisoners.
Those not able to keep up were beaten or bayoneted on the roadside.
Japanese forces begin landing troops on Cebu and Billiton Islands in the Philippines
Heavy fighting in the Kholm area is again
reported as German forces
continue to make headway against stubborn Soviet defenses.
I know so little about World War II, I figure most people are
ignorant like me.
That's why I asked David Friedrichs to educate us. Some of the events I knew
about were the Bataan Death March, the Battle of Midway and the USS Indianapolis.
Take a moment - read Dave's account of some almost-forgotten heroes.
A shot of Chinaco for our brave fighting men - then and now.
Would you like to be a sponsor of Juliefest2002?
Here's how that works - security is going to cost Julie $360.
But if YOU wanted to sponsor Julie's security detail, you would get a nice
personal note (not an e-mail) from Julie that would probably say something like,
"Thank you, (your name here) for seeing to my safety on my big night."
that would be worth framing and hanging in your den or on your desk at work.
People would constantly be saying, "How
do you know Julie Hiatt Steele?"
There are also various transportation costs (not mine) for this event.
Would you like to be a $300 transportation sponsor?
We're going to have flowers for Julie $200and
a giant cake $80
The pro photographer is probably $200 (thanks Marg Matt)
and the videographer has some expenses, so if you'd like to sponsor some costs for Juliefest,
which will mean more money in her pocket, write to us at email@example.com
We have more $100 tickets - bring a friend!
PayPal your $100 per ticket to firstname.lastname@example.org

...you'll never forget the day you met Julie Hiatt Steele - slayer of Kenneth Starr.
to prosecute cook accused of killing
two crewmates on the high seas
Jay Friedheim, a Honolulu lawyer for the crew members, said it is extremely rare
for a foreign ship not destined for the United States to be brought to this country
for prosecution of a crime committed in international waters.
"The last one we could find like this was in 1840
or 1850," he said.
It involved a mutiny in which an officer was killed, he said.

Day SIX of Bush engaging the Middle East problem
US President seen as weak and stupid
The Bush boy: Withdraw immediately!
might pull back in a symbolic town or two, but no
snot-nosed, never-worked-a-day-in-his-life frat boy is going to tell me
how to protect Israel, so don't care what you think, errand boy...
"Unka Dick, I know you said I should stay out of it,
but I got an idea how to fix the midwest problem.
The problem is the exploding Palestinian gorillas, right?
First, we sue the Palestinian Zoo for letting 'em loose.
Then we get that "Crikey" guy from Australia and hire
him to capture them Palestinian gorillas for us.
...I thought of this all by myself.
Unka Dick, why you rubbing your head that way?
...why, ...don't cry, Unka Dick - did I say something sad?"
