Because of professional responsibilities
the last few weeks I have been remiss with my
correspondence about JulieFestDC, I wanted to say something different than just "it was great", so here goes.
When I saw the tape it reminded me of a
heroic epic. There was a heroine, an inner circle,
sort of like the Knights of the Round Table (Bartcop, Christian, Carville and Conason),
a dialogue of events leading up to the Event, and the loyal masses (us). Then there was
the Event, the celebration of the heroine.
What I’m trying to say is that the tape
followed some literary conventions and the dialogue
tied it in and made it really meaningful and that is what makes it a wonderful watch. You did not
have to know the background in order to understand the Event, it was right there on the tape.
That was more than I really expected.
So my advice to the reader is to buy the
tape if you haven’t already, throw in a couple of extra bucks
for the cause, and play the tape for someone who may not have known anything about Julie Hiatt Steele
before (maybe a moderate Republican who supported McCain). Maybe then we can spread some
understanding about what happened during the impeachment.
This tape along with a copy of the "Hunting
of the President" and/or "Blinded by the Right"
would make a wonderful present for a left leaning friend.
Saturday, we jumped in Mrs. BartCop's touring sedan to
meet Christian in Fayettenam.
(She's been visiting her man Ray in Ft Smith)
That threw off my timing, this the oddly timed/shaped issues over
Maybe by tomoro we'll be back on schedule.
"When Bush was asked about [the EPA's report]
last week, he dismissively remarked:
'I read the report put out by the bureaucracy.' ...Ari Fleischer fessed up: Bush didn't
actually read that 268-page report on climate change, even if he said he did. Fleischer
was asked Monday at his briefing about Bush's comments that he'd read the report.
"Whenever presidents say they read it, you can read that to be he was briefed,"
-- Ari Fleischer said, producing laughter. --AP, June 10, 2002
Of course President Brainless didn't read any damn report.
What do you think he is, ...literate?
Remember all those men he executed in Texas?
His staff would prepare a briefing for him on the guy's guilt, and instead of reading it,
Bush would say, "Just tell me what's in the report," and the staffer would say,
"Looks guilty to me, Sir," so Bush snuffed his life out on some staffer's word.
That's how diligent our "president" is with his job ethic and with human life.
and wealth transfer,
instead of actual production of goods and services
"The phenomenon of CEOs and other executives walking away from their bankrupt companies with their pockets
filled has become a common feature of modern American capitalism. After running an enterprise on the basis
of fraud, criminality and cooked books, executives proceed to jump from the rickety and irreparably damaged
planes that they have built with a so-called “golden parachute,” leaving the workers to suffer the crash. All of this
money is essentially stolen cash, reaped from the company’s workers, those who invested in the criminally
overvalued stocks and did not get out in time, and even from other companies. This phenomenon is part and
parcel of an economic system that functions more and more through theft and wealth transfer than by the
actual production of goods and services."
"We used to get three sources, now we just
have one - Ari."

Why did you publish something from the ironic times site as being factual?
> Which of the following was NOT legalized by the "Patriot Act":
> A) "Black bag" searches of homes, offices, without showing search warrant.
> B) Copying records of public libraries, credit card companies, banks, hospitals, hotels.
> C) Wiretapping attorney-client phone calls without judicial approval.
> D) Preemptive executions, if authorized by the Attorney General.
> Answers next week.
Answer D was not legalized by the USA Patriot
Bill, how can you say that?
They've publically announced that they will arrest suspects, hold secret trials
and execute afterwards. Are you hung up on the word "pre-emptive?"
Which part of that do you think is wrong?
Is there a joke here I'm missing?
They've already arrested people and held them secretly.
What makes you think some of them have not been executed?
How do you think they're getting these weekly "terror alerts?"
By asking these Al Qaeda losers, "C'mon, please tell us?"
One thing, don't quote ironic times to me.
I'm quoting the executioners.

Truth about BartCop
letter to AMPOL by "Jack"
Bartcop is a filthy lying pig!.
Of this fact I have personal and intimate knowledge!
Why, ...I never did anything personal or intimate with this guy.
I don't even recognize the e-mail - maybe Jack is a new reader...
You soil yourself by any association with
him and lower yourself
in the eyes of us who know the truth. It disappoints me greatly
to think that that is what represents AmPol today.
On the other hand, at JulieFest2002-DC
I was able to
meet Gene from AMPOL, to whom this Monkey Mail was addressed.
You can see Gene in the video, talking to James Carville & Joe Conason.
...and Jack, thanks for reading bartcop.com
Every click makes the pie higher.
Subject: Monkey pisses self, press laughs, gives rave reviews
What happened? We went from a competent elected president that saved the
economy, helped the environment, helped peace throughout the world, and was
continually ridiculed by the press.... now an unelected monkey urinates on "itself"
and causes a mess (seemingly endless catastrophies) and the press laughs, gushes,
and gives apologetic rave reviews. God help us.
Surely even the Nazi Republican unemployment line
is growing, and they'll notice an
unqualified evil monkey urinating on itself isn't funny (especially when so many people
suffer). Whore money sure makes people ignorant, uncaring, evil, and stupid.
MD, your last sentence says it all.
To make it worse, they are cheap whores.
If they have a choice between telling the truth and make a million dollars OR
lying like crazy and making a million and five dollars, they'll lie every time.
Look what happened to once-respected Salon.com
This is the state of the American press in the 21st Century.
Subject: Just finished the J-Fest Video
After reading all the great
reviews on this video, I was expecting a lot.
But what I saw went way above my high expectations. I was blown away
by the whole video. Carville was great and it was great seeing Joe Conason speak.
But Julie blew me away. Everything she said was so inspiring, and the whole time
she was incredibly graceful and humble. She's a true hero.
Bart, you and the other organizers
should be really proud of the great job you did
on Julie Fest. Without your energy and devotion, what I saw would never have happened.
The tape was professional and very well done. I wish I could have been at Julie Fest,
but the tape is the next best thing. I recommend it to anybody who wants to see this
great weekend devoted to a real American hero.
Fox Ho: Bush Insider Claims Clinton Deal Torpedoed Pardongate
A Bush insider has leaked that a deal was
struck between Democratic congressional leaders and President
Nunnypants not to prosecute the Clintons on Pardongate, Fox Ho's Bill O'Reilly claimed Friday
"A source told me that Bush had meetings
with all of the Democratic leadership.... one on one meetings
in the Oval Office. The Democratics said Bush would get zero cooperation - zero - from Democrats he
pursued any kind of a criminal investigation against Bill Clinton."...
Does this story have Karl Rove’s fingerprints
all over it, or not?
Sounds to me like a lie that can never be refuted, since any refutation
will sound like excuse making. It incites the Clinton haters without
anyone ever having to be responsible for proving whether it’s true
—or not, which is more likely.—Carol] makethemaccountable.com
Carol, sure sounds like a fake story to me.
Sidebar: Did you read this on Salon.com?
First, this bogus report gives the Fox whores a big "scoop." It
makes the Clintons look guilty
when they're not, and it paints Bunnypants as "above it all" and wanting to move on,
when it was the goddamn lying Bush bastards who fabricated the horseshit in the first place.
But what sounds the most fake is the idea that the Democrats would
stand behind Clinton.
Every time the GOP fabricated a "scandal," the Democrats would always agree up front that this was
"just like something Clinton would do," then they'd back off when the evidence proved them innocent.
It happened what, 25 times in those eight years?
On Clinton's first day out of office, Rove had his good puppy
press claim the Clinton's trashed the place
and EVERY elected Democrat (except Hillary) sighed and said, "Well, at least he's gone."
The back-stabbing Democrats stupidly assumed the "trashing the
White House" stories were true,
then they stupidly assumed the "stripped Air Force One of all they could carry" stories were true, too.
Then they stupidly assumed Clinton pardoned Marc Rich to gain a few bucks for his library,
then they stupidly assumed the Clintons stole government furniture from the White House.
Here we have the ONLY Democrat to win back to back elections since
and the pink-tutu Democrats stabbed him in the back every chance they had.
I'm so proud to be a Democrat.
Subject: Send me a tape
Keep it up Bart.
We need your voice in the wilderness even if your mouth is full of corn.
Next Bush Boondoggle on the horizon - Amtrak.
We may never recover from this Presidency.
What hasn't this idiot not screwed up?
We need more like Julie.
I would never measure up, but at least should see the video and hope
that this measly amount will be of some use to her and her son.
Every tape that goes out is $20 (minimum) in Julie's pocket.
Tape on the way - 2-day air!
Subject: Harassing Republicans
I talked to the head of the Pennsylvania GOP yesterday...asked
him about Ashcroft's power
of preemptive executions. His quote, "That's incredible...that's unconstitional. There's no way
that could be done without a trial. I can't believe that's in the bill."
I agreed fully.
TEd, are you kidding?
Months ago, Bush & ashcroft said they were going to secret tribunals.
The Democrats said, "We're with you, Dubya! Anything you want!"
So you think what?
Bush & Ashcroft felt they had too much power and backtracked?
You think they decided more congressional oversight was needed?
Usually I ask for short e-mails, but somebody needs to explain this in detail.
How much clearer could Bush & Ashcroft have been?
You think a secret trial is followed by a fair and public execution?
Are you kidding?
What do you expect next, tapes of the secret Gitmo torture sessions on Fox?
This all happened months ago, and I'm appalled that people think
this isn't happening and the power was never grabbed by these Nazis.
That Padilla guy was held for 30 days - secretly.
He was born in Chicago, and Bush/Ashcroft made the claim that
he was "with terra" so he was thrown in prison without a f-ing lawyer.
What, you think a lawyer will be present at his execution?
Are you kidding?
Dear Bart: Thank you so much for the incredible
tape of Juliefest!
I didn't expect it, and it made a bad week better.
So many Bartistas!
We'll win this fight yet.
Onward to Vegas!
If a Democrat is elected ( in 2004), will
the more odious parts of the Patriot act,
and other recent enactments, be repealed? I doubt it.
Once power is gained it is very hard, without MASSIVE public pressure, to have it withdrawn.
I see the Dems fawning as much as the Repubs
over these new attitudes. It seems that only
the freedom loving hard right and left are interested in repealing these constitutional threats.
There is such a great rush to the patriotic center, actually the right of center ( Clinton being
right of center and NOT a liberal), by both sides that neither will wish to sully their own characters.
Pure, I disagree.
No way the GOP will allow a Democrat to do have the unlimited power the B.F.E.E. has.
The Democrats fell over themselves to empower the Unelected Fraud, but they won't mind
when the Republicans strip the next lawfully-elected (please, God, please?) president.
Hell, Clinton was elected fair and square and they decided to
impeach him before they
ever heard the name "Monica," and our pink tutu geldings bent over for the Unelected Fraud?
Like with the "Independent" Counsel, when a Demo wins the White
House they'll decide
it's "too much power" to allow the president to secretly execute men without a trial.
Subject: Re: hey from bart
The Juliefest video is fantastic, I have watched it several times and each time is
as good as the last. I have always felt for Julie for what she went through and
respected her for staying strong and standing up to the thugs but this video,
for me, made her a living being and not just a name in a story on the internet.
So thank you for making this video available for
a modest donation
and thank YOU for helping Julie.
Conan C found the McDermott

My first real stick - the C-11
My current fave - the D-8
It has a cork wrap (instead of the black linen pictured here)
Have you ever felt the smoothness of cork?
These sticks, themselves, have no magic.
But once you close the gap between your eyes and the cue ball,
(a nice, balanced, comfortable stick does that) your hands become an extension
of your eye and you're more likely to win.

Subject: Corn envy
experiencing severe corn envy. Fresh local corn will not replace
those dried up imported ears here in Michigan for at least another month.
As a liberal, I weep for those poor, abused ears; ripped from their rightful
places on the tables of Florida as if they were votes in a presidential election.
Packed tightly into shipping crates, barely able
to breathe, they shiver in the
night as they cross the vast wastelands of Indiana and Ohio, only to arrive at
Kroger, where only the taste-bud-challenged will rescue them from the
overflowing bins. Their sad, shriveled silks will look more like steel wool
than anything else, except possibly Katherine Harris' hair. Adding insult to
injury, their husks will be stripped in the store, leaving some of them exposed
and rejected atop the pile while others head for some poor fool's table, losing
moisture and flavor with every moment of their nakedness.
Those of us more patient will just have to wait, water boiling, butter and
salt shaker in hand, until the roadside stands once again cry, "Fresh Michigan
Corn!". With tears of joy, we will approach with reverence, gently peeling
back just enough husk to get a glimpse of the golden glory inside, then quickly
closing them to keep all the sweetness inside. "Are 2 dozen enough for a
family of 3?", we will ask. Others will smile knowingly as we reach for a
3rd bag, just to be sure.
It is rumored that one of the reasons for the delay here in Michigan
is to give the Detroit Red Wings time to have their dental work repaired in
time for corn season. Did I mention that they just won the Stanley Cup?
No? How did I miss that?
You, of all people, have deserved this treat, for keeping us informed and
entertained over the year, and for your superb efforts in the defense of fair
Julie's honor. So, enjoy your early bounty, even knowing that, among others,
Jim from Rochester, Mad Dog, and I will be 5 states away suffering from
produce deprivation and jealousy. The pictures will be torture, but we will
get through, knowing that our reward is just weeks away.
As Homer Simpson might say, mmmm.....corn......
