"...alert Minnesota agents didn’t just passively
push the case up the chain of command.
They became, in Rowley’s words, “desperate to search his computer laptop.” ...In this case
a federal judge in Washington, Royce C. Lambreth, grew annoyed at the poor documentation
involved in requests from federal prosecutors for search warrants and wiretaps. One prosecutor
so angered Lambreth that he was actually barred from seeking any more approvals from judges,
a move that sent a chilling career message down through the ranks of the Justice Department.
So Frasca, knowing which way the wind was blowing in Washington, wasn’t just going to rubber
stamp the Minneapolis request."

to the Holocaust
Prescott Bush, 1.5 million dollars, and Auschwitz
How the Bush Family wealth is linked to the Jewish Holocaust
But while President Bush publicly embraced the community of holocaust
survivors in Washington last spring, he and his family have been keeping a
secret from them for over 50 years about Prescott Bush, the president's
grandfather. According to classified documents from Dutch intelligence and US
government archives, President George W. Bush's grandfather, Prescott Bush
made considerable profits off Auschwitz slave labor. In fact, President Bush
himself is an heir to these profits from the holocaust which were placed in a blind
trust in 1980 by his father, former president George Herbert Walker Bush.
For years, the conservative cheats railed against Clinton's mother
she liked to sit on a barstool and play the ponies in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Meanwhile, the only elected Bush's father was arming Hitler, and that's OK,
because the Bush Family Evil Empire controls what we see on the news.
Lucky for the B.F.E.E. that, besides a few web sites, America has no free press.
Joan Collins, Star Trek and Midway
Not all women are jealous of other women's good
Many of us are adult enough to say "You go, girl."
"City on the Edge of Forever" was the best of
the original series,
but TV Guide was right, "All Good Things" was the best Trek 'sode.
It's nice to think that old NCC-1701D is still out there walking the parameter.
If you want the best take on Midway, read Herman
Wouk's "War and Remembrance".
If the section on the battle doesn't move you to tears, you have a heart of stone.
This is probably more suited for Media
Whores Online, but
I have a question for Howie Kurtz.
Howie, each week on CNN's Reliable Sources when you take
your "critical look at the media,"
[ha ha, who thought of that piece of crap slogan?] why do you always have Jay Nordlinger or
Rick Lowry, who both work for the Clinton-hating National Review, to help you?
Have you ever had a non-Clinton-hating guest on?
If Clinton-hater from the National Review is obligatory,
have tyou ever consider having a pro-Clinton pundit on?
...or are there none left in Washington DC?
The new is up.
To kick it off, he's got a story by Mike Malloy, running back!
Curious about that Bush-ordered, no-guns rule?
...a spokesman for the Air Line Pilots Association said the FAA directive rescinding
the armed-pilot rule was issued July 17, 2001 and took effect much later – on Nov. 14, 2001.
That means the FAA was not only actively
working to prohibit pilots from carrying weapons
despite increased hijacking risks to the airlines, but agency officials also consciously rescinded
the only regulation that might have protected flight crews against terrorist hijackers.
So, Bush wants millions of Texas Bubbas to bring their guns into
and neighborhood Wal-Marts, but our trained pilots can't be trusted with them?
I think Bush is succeeding (ever seen those words together before?) at becoming the anti-Clinton.
or Consequences Pt 2
They read it in Tehran.
They read it in Sao Paulo.
They read it in Nashville.
is always worth a read.
by Gene Lyons
As the un-Clinton, Bush didn't want to hear about al-Qaida. Newsweek reports that Attorney General
John Ashcroft had an "extraordinary confrontation" with then-FBI director Louis Freeh, informing him
that drugs, violent crime and child pornography were the agency's new priorities, not counter-terrorism.
Agents in Minneapolis, who correctly believed they had an al-Qaida suspect in custody, met so many
bureaucratic roadblocks they joked that bin Laden must have infiltrated FBI headquarters. The Bush
administration's determination to avoid a probe of intelligence failures appears to have less to do with
protecting national security than hiding its own blunders.
A great Doonesbury, explaining what criminals Reagan/Bush are.
Meeting with Dan Rather
by Elliot Mathias
"You'll have to excuse my ignorance, but what exactly are we looking at?"
My stomach instantly dropped. Maybe she was unsure of a specific building?
"No, what is this entire area we are looking at?"
"The Temple Mount!!" I wanted to scream.
"It's the most important spot in the entire region!"

Today in History
In 1765, Patrick Henry, the inventor of Ebonics,
denounced the Stamp Act
before Virginia's House of Burgesses, saying, "If this be treason, make the most of it!"
In 1903, Bob Hope was born, probably in Jersey.
In 1917, John F. Kennedy, was born in Brookline, Mass.
In 1942, Bing Crosby, at the end of the month of May, recorded
"White Christmas" in Los Angeles.
Years later, Mel Torme will write "The Christmas Song" in Palms Springs while broiling in 104 degree heat.
In 1997, in closing arguments, Timothy McVeigh's attorney
urged jurors not to be swayed by
the mountain of evidence against his "Government is the problem" client in the OKC bombing trial
after the prosecution delivered a wrenching summation that portrayed McVeigh as a terrorist who killed
children in the warped belief he was a patriot.
In 2001, four followers of Osama bin Laden were convicted
in New York of a global conspiracy to
kill Americans, including the 1998 bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa that killed 224 people.
Note: That must be an error, because the GOP constantly
says Clinton NEVER took ANY action
against ANY terrorist because he was too busy having sex and didn't care.
Also in 2001, President Dork met with Gray Davis and rejected
a plea for federal caps on electricity,
claiming "Enron can earn whatever the market will bear."
Luckily for Bush, the press is covering up his multi-billion-dollar rape.
How does a priest know he's gay?
He's not allowed to have sexual urges - ever.
Not on his birthday, not on New Year's Eve, not on Christmas Eve.
He's never allowed to have sexual thoughts of any kind.
If he has sexual thoughts while alseep, he has committed a mortal
which is the same as murder in the eyes of the Catholic Church.
If a priest says, "I'm not homosexual,"
doesn't that mean he's
admitting to having sexual thoughts and urges towards women?
Since God installed runaway sexual urges in every living creature,
why does the Church fight that "gift" which God has given to every living being?
Why fight God's wishes?
Think how muich cheaper it would be to change the celibacy rule
than to pay
millions of dollars to the families of hundreds of young boys
There's also a credibility boost that you're not a serial-raping monster.
by Wizard of Whimsy
If you wanted Clinton impeached, take a look at Bush
The list of Enron cronies in the Bush-Cheney administration goes on and on. The White House
announced its opposition to price caps on electricity during the California power crisis the day
after Cheney's meeting, in the White House, with Enron officials. And we have Karl Rove who
helped Intel gain government approval of a merger that enriched him personally since Rove failed
to reveal and sell his stake in Intel until after the merger had taken place and the stock's value had
risen considerably. To me at least, this kind of whoring is far more disturbing than the juvenile
antics of Bill and Monica."
is the New York Times defending
Bush's September 11 cover-up?
By Barry Grey
The aversion of Apple and the Times to “gotcha politics” is of recent vintage.
During the year-long political witch-hunt against Bill Clinton mounted by the
Republican right and headed by Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr—which
culminated in the first-ever impeachment of an elected president—the New
York Times consistently backed Starr against his critics. It defended all of the
efforts to pollute public opinion with salacious gossip and endorsed Starr’s
pornographic report on the Lewinsky affair, which included the most intimate
details of Clinton’s private life. The Times played an indispensable role in the
attempted political coup, providing a cloak of legitimacy to the conspiracy to
undermine the Clinton White House and ultimately bring it down.

At the summit here yesterday, Mr. Putin dryly suggested that the NATO headquarters in Brussels
be renamed: "We should call ourselves the House of the Soviets." Naturellement, the Frenchies were
both jealous and contemptuous of Mr. Bush's buddy act with Mr. Putin, sniffing that the American was
getting played by the former K.G.B. chief in a roundelay called "The snoop and the dupe."

Sorry you lost your political guru -- I
lost mine in 1996 when my mom died, and I still
miss those discussions and swear sessions. She was much more radical than even I am!
I'd love to know what she thinks of this
-- she HATED the Bushes, particularly Barbara! ;o)
Anyways, I wanted to put my money where
your mouth is, what you do is soooooo important!!!
Just trying to do my part. Part of the first month was my renewal for Salon that I didn't send them
because of Horowitz ...... who once called me a barking dog
Suzanne, thanks, and isn't it sad what salon.com
I wonder if they'd let bin Laden write a column, to increase profits, I mean.
They were once a liberal web site, even mentioned by name by Big
Dog at the WHCD,
but now they are Horowitz's rag so people are left with mediawhoresonline, buzzflash and bartcop.com
Note: If you send salon.com money, you might as
well send it directly to the Bush campaign.
Salon gives your money to David Horowitz to attack people like you and me.
Bushies Wrong About Cuba
by smoking Joe Conason
The most troubling aspect of that episode wasn’t the scornful response of the White House
to Jimmy Carter’s remarkable visit or Fidel Castro’s unprecedented welcome. After all, nobody
expected the Bush administration to revise our pointless, punitive policies toward Havana simply
because they have failed to achieve any of their objectives for 40 years.
No, the disturbing moment came just before
Mr. Carter’s trip, when a top State Department official
duplicitously spoke of "terrorism" and "weapons of mass destruction" to help justify the same old
stupid policies. We now know for certain that there was absolutely no basis for those alarmist words.
On the morning of Sept. 11, Tatlock herself had just arrived with
a small group of
business leaders at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha for a charity event hosted by
Warren Buffett. She then heard the news of the first plane hitting the north tower.
I did a quick Google search. There it was. He had been right after all.
Financial CEOs with offices in the World Trade Center had been evacuated to
Offutt AFB the morning of 9/11. Smirk hid out like a scared rabbit at that same air base.
Instead of trying to prove this is true, could somebody do some digging
and find out how many CEOs died on September 11th?
It's my guess that the WTC held at least 100 CEOs.
If every one of them was with Warren Buffet in Nebraska that day,
(at an Air Force Base, no less) that would seem to prove a conspiracy.
Would any CEO sit idly by and allow his co-workers to be slaughtered?
Did the CEO at Cantor-Fitzgerald lose 700 employees and save himself?
There would need to be hundreds of people in on this conspiracy.
How do you keep them all quiet, considering the carnage of the day?
Is it a coincidence that Offutt AFB was one of Bush's hidey-holes?

The Shield, the best new drama of the year, is re-running
every show starting tonight on FX.
When the season started, they said 24 was the big drama, but The Shield stole their thunder
and is recognized as the best new drama of the year.
Last night was Part One of the explosive season finale.
To celebrate, FX is running the original two shows tonight, the next two tomorrow night,
and thru the next six days until next Tuesday when you'll you see the exiciting season finale.
Watch the first two shows tonight - you'll be hooked.
I've seen every show and they've never done a "good" show.
They've all been either "very good" or "excellent."
How many shows, even The Sopranos and West Wing, can say
every episode of their first year was "very good" or "excellent?"
In last night's top shelve episode, the crooked cop tried to help
his crooked former boss,
but the boss set him up, instead. After Vic pulled a gang-banger out of a crowd, his crooked boss
murdered him, so now Vic has to explain and coverup a murder he didn't want to be involved in.
Everyone is closing in on Vic and the streets are in flames because
the crooked boss
made sure the cops took 45 mninutes to respond to critical emergency calls.
If you likes Hill Street, Homicide, and NYPD
Blue in its prime, you'll agree
that The Shield is the best new drama, and best cop show on TV - period.

Iran and Iraq may export terrorism and that’s bad.... maybe even evil. That coupled with the fact
that the Iranian and Iraqi Governments oppress their own people could put Iran and Iraq on the "S" list,
but that is not why they are proud members of the "Axis of Evil". I thoroughly believe that Iran and Iraq
earned this badge of honor by being anti-American OPEC nations and (as anyone knows) only grief
and woe of Biblical proportions shall come to he who stands between the Bushies and any oil anywhere.
Before 9/11, who had information about a terrorist plot against the United States?
a) John Walker Lindh
b) George W. Bush
Who is on trial for treason?
a) John Walker Lindh
b) George W. Bush
