Volume 885 - Evil Presidentes


Sat-Sun   Sept 7-8, 2002.................................... .............................................. 
 VCR Alert -  O.J. -True Hollywood Story  tonight on E! 


"The public approval of journalists surge remarkably in the weeks after 9/11.
   People thought that we did a pretty serious and responsible job and now,
   you know journalists, let's face it, are back to being about as popular as CEOs.
       -- Howie Kurtz, Bush's boy at CNN

 Howie, maybe it's because you're a lying bastard.
 You think that's why people hate the press so much?
 Try telling the damn truth for once truth and see if your approval goes up...

 I wonder, ...maybe we should pick a day (Not Sept 11th) where the press
 tells nothing but the truth the whole day - wouldn't that be nice to see?

 Of course, they'd all have to go dark that day, because if they told the truth,
 they'd contradict everything they say on the other 364 days on the year.

 The Taliban minister, the US envoy and the
 warning of September 11 that was ignored

 The minister then ordered him to alert the US and the UN about what was going to happen.
 But in a massive failure of intelligence, the message was disregarded because of what sources
 describe as "warning fatigue". At the same time, the FBI and the CIA failed to take seriously
 warnings that Islamic fundamentalist students had enrolled in flight schools across the US.

 In war, some facts less factual
  Some US assertions from the last war on Iraq still appear dubious.

 When Bush ordered American forces to the Persian Gulf ­ to reverse Iraq's August 1990
 invasion of Kuwait ­ part of the administration case was that an Iraqi juggernaut was also
 threatening to roll into Saudi Arabia. Citing top-secret satellite images, Pentagon officials
 estimated in mid­September that up to 250,000 Iraqi troops and 1,500 tanks stood on the
 border, threatening the key US oil supplier.

 But when the St. Petersburg Times in Florida acquired two commercial Soviet satellite images
 of the same area, taken at the same time, no Iraqi troops were visible near the Saudi border
 ­ just empty desert.

"It was a pretty serious fib," says Jean Heller, the Times journalist who broke the story.

 That's why this gang of thugs stole their way into power.
 They're going to kill a bunch of Arabs, build themselves a pipeline and steal their oil.
 The B.F.E.E. will be so rich, they can buy any future election.

 ...and the Democrats don't care.

 Hillary's new hair style
 The Moonie Times has multiple orgasms

  Click  Here

 Doubtless, the change in hair demeanor will bring on the rustling of journalists,
 friends, foes, fans, handlers, TV producers, talk-show hosts, magazine editors,
 shampoo makers and nervous Democrats who wonder what it all means.

 Yeah - I, for one, can't sleep at all, I'm so nervous.

 The Moonie Times runs this story so Rush can squeel,
"We don't want to know about the Clintons!!!!" which, of course,
 gives him the opportunity to spend the entire day on the topic, "against my will."

 Then Hannity can do an hour or two on it, Fox Whore News does a special, the Beltway Boys
 do it for a half hour, Chris the Screamer wants in on the fun, Tim Russert will no doubt wear the
 pants with the hole in the pocket, Glenn Beck and Michael Savage see it as a sign of the apocalypse,
 Juan Williams and Mara Liason see describe it as "another liberal power grab," Ken Starr is thinking
 about asking Janet Reno for permission to re-open the IOC, and the entire circle-jerk right breaks
 into a sweat over something that nobody else in the country cares about.

 They live and breathe the Clintons, because hate is their glue - it's all they have.


"I hate this war that's coming in Iraq. I don't think we'll be proud of it. I oppose this war
  because it will create a millennium of hatred and the suicidal terrorism that comes with it.
  You talk about Bush trying to avenge his father. What about the tens of millions of Arab sons
  who will want to finish a fight we start next spring in Baghdad?"
             --Chris Matthews, in his final column

 Final column?
 Did that bout of maleria kill the backstabbing screamer?

 Mail Bag

 I discovered your site by accident and now I'm hooked
 I always look for the alternative to the main stream press
 I don't always agree with what you have to say
 But keep it up. If nothing more your site forces people to THINK
 rather than just gobble down what's being spoon fed
 This Country needs help. It needs more voices like yours out there


 JK, well put.
 I've tried to say that, but you said it better.
 That's why I mix jokes with the truth.
 So people will ask themselves, "Did that really happen?"

 It forces the reader to take a position.
 If divorcing your wife on her deathbed is tacky, you should be able to
 make a decision about that before finding out it was Newt Gingrich.

 I'm not looking for followers, I don't have an army, no matter what what whack Dude
 from the NY Press said yesterday, I don't want to lead a revolution of any kind
 unless it involved 100 percent pure agave tequila against Jose Cuervo horse drippings..

 Moral of the story:
 The "responsible" outlets are now lying their asses off.
 You can't believe everything you read.

 bartcop.com? ...I'll bet it's only ten percent bullshit.
 That puts it in the journalist-ethics stratosphere.

"Boondocks"Creator on Donahue


 DONAHUE: We’re back talking to nationally syndicated cartoonist Aaron McGruder.
 Here’s the book collection of some of his work, the “Boondocks.”
 Because I know you don’t read the newspapers. I do look at the pictures, though.
 “Fresh-fresh for ’01, you suckas!” What’s the problem with Condoleezza?
 Now, why would you give her that kind of shot?

 MCGRUDER: I have a problem with the whole administration. And you know, they’re gangsters.
 And I can actually respect that they’re gangsters, but you really don’t want gangsters going to war.
 You know, and Condoleezza, Colin Powell, as African-Americans, you know, just to be part of a
 regime that got into power, as we saw earlier, by disenfranchising so many black people - it just
 seems very wrong to me.

 My problem is with the Bush administration is nothing compared to my problem
 with the Democrats for letting them get away with it....the Republicans are gangsters.
 They always have been. ...the Democrats are just punks. They just roll over and
 play dead and let them get away.

"Another troublemaker, just like Bart!
 Why can't we all just bend over for Bush?
 He's a great president!"

Subject: re: Television's Special Day of Pain and Comfort

Hi, BC!

I was so glad you said Bartcop was going to be its usual fun self on 9/11.  I have been saying for weeks
that I want to be off the planet that day to avoid the 9/11 coverage.  It's not that I was not extremely
sympathetic to what happened.  It's not that I was not very angry about it.  After all, I am from NYC
and I have family there.  It's just that I am so sick of 9/11 being used all year long by a bunch of
hypocrites and liars for their own benefit.

While we watch endless parades, flags, and tributes to the police and firefighters, I will know that Bush
cut off the money he had promised them, that Fireman's Fund cut off their insurance because they were
too high risk now, that the families of the victims that are suing the airlines are being screwed by our
government, that the airline security is a joke, that the fraud's administration used that incident to take away
our civil liberties, attack Iraq, enrich themselves and their friends, read our e-mail, intimidate dissenters,
and instill fear and racism upon its citizenry, and that most of the flag-waving morons of America love
their country so much and are so goddamn patriotic that they can't get off their big fat asses to vote.

I don't want to see the very same people who have used 9/11 to implement their agenda pretending
to honor the heroes of that day.  It will make me sick.

"I told my mother if I had to go to jail; what would she think?"

 Nevada's Legal Pot?

  Click  Here

 Since this year's measure qualified for the ballot, drug Nazi Asa Hutchinson has visited
 to warn that legalizing pot would turn Nevada into a drug tourist spot.

''You're going to have a much more permissive environment,'' Hutchinson says.
''People will be coming from other states to visit their relatives so they can use marijuana.''

 Oh, No!
 You mean people might spend money to get on planes or drive to Las Vegas?
 You mean people might smoke God's flowers and enjoy it?
 You mean people might do this while visiting their families?

 Go get 'em, Asa!
 This threatens the very fiber of America!
 We can't have any of that!

 Push for tougher laws, Asa!
 Call it the "Save our Children" law!
 Put those people in prison for life!

 If drugs were legal, cock-hunting, Bob Jones-graduating,
 House Manager Asa Hutchinson might have to get a real job.

 Greg Palast on Donahue


"What’s happening is that the president of the United States is using the U.S. taxpayers as a piggy bank
 to basically purchase the governorship, the reelection, for his brother in Florida.  Just this month we had
 the president of the United States announcing that he’s laying out $115 million to buy back leases in the
 Gulf of Mexico so that there won’t be a lot of oil drilling off the coast of Florida. This is an absolute
 political must for his brother. It’s costing us 115 million. We’re buying back leases that the oil companies,
 ExxonMobil, paid 13 million for. It’s not only payback for Jeb, but it’s a nice payday for the donors.
 ExxonMobil was the No. 2 donor to the George W. Bush family career."
         --Greg Palast, Donohue, 09/05/02

 "I'm curious as to this change of heart in this administration.
   Was Iraq evil in 1998, when Dick Cheney's Halliburton was doing business, there?"
      -- Paul Begala, asking questions that the Fraud Administration can't answer.

 Why won't White House reporters ask Cheney why he did $23M in business with Saddam?

 You know the answer - because they are whores on the B.F.E.E. payroll.

"Limbaugh is right that the Bush tax cut is only one of many causes of the federal deficit this year,
 it is the single largest cause of the long-term deterioration of the federal budget picture. As the
 respected liberal analysts at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities note, data from the CBO
 show that the tax cut is responsible for 31 percent of the estimated $5.3 trillion decline in the
 2002-2011 surplus since January 2001.   Limbaugh’s favored cause, increased spending, is the
 source of approximately 24 percent of the ten-year reduction.  But the tax cut is still the single
 largest factor, making clear that it is Limbaugh who is dissembling when he claims,
 “The liberal lie of 2002 is that the . . . Bush tax cut, is causing this new wave of budget deficits”.
        -- Limbaugh's flawed budget analogy (9/5) by Bryan Keefer at Salon.com

Still no guesses on the mystery Dude on the right,
and I gotta say I'm a little miffed at this Copple guy.
  He said if I rushed him some  bartcop.com  stickers,
he might get a picture of 'the President' holding it

...and I'm sorry to be an ingrate,
...but that's not Bill Clinton.

So, this Copple dude let me down - promising all this and, ...what?

That's who?
That's f-ing who?

Are you kidding me?
The guy who wins the Emmy every year for "Best Actor in a Drama"
is holding a  bartcop.com  sticker?)

Ladies and gentlemen ... Mr. Sam Waterston!

 Subject: Bush AWOL or Deserter?

 Thought I'd clarify something that's mentioned repeatedly regarding
 "Shrub" and his military service record.

 A soldier is AWOL if absent for 30 days or less.  After 30 days a soldier is
 considered a deserter.  The maximum sentence for desertion is death by hanging.

 As Molly Ivins says, "Some companies are too big to fail,
                                  and some people too rich to go to jail".

 Keep up the fight,


Just kidding...

Copple did a great job of bringing  bartcop.com  to the attention
of Martin Sheen who is so into Democratic politics
he's been arrested something like 80 times.

I wonder if Mr. Sheen likes fine tequila and visiting Las Vegas...?



"Saddam Hussein didn't kill 3,100 people on Sept. 11. Osama bin Laden did,
  and as far as we know he's still alive.  There's no question ... he has significant
  stocks of chemical and biological agents.  I think we have to assume that if he
  knows we're coming ...he'll do everything he can to use them.
  That's the only risk ...it's an issue the president has to address."
     -- Our last elected (and smartest) president

 From: Eric G

 Subject: Bush knew/Cipro rant

 I would like to start off by saying that I have nothing but contempt for Shrub and the majority
 of his henchmen/keepers. However, I would like to play a bit of Devil's Advocate.

 Isn't it possible that Bush had read a summary of terrorist threat reports?
 More likely is that Cheney actually read a report, which, for the sake of argument, mentioned a
 strong possibility of Anthrax attacks as part of bio-terrorist attacks on the U.S.  Then, when the
 planes hit the towers, Cheney thinks "Oh shit, this is it." and starts downing Cipro.

 Eric, I must be terrible at making my point.
 If Cheney & Bush knew anthrax was likely why the fuck didn't they tell us?
 I think the American people and the postal workers would've like to have known.

 It was a serious enough threat for them to take seriously,
 but we, as a nation, had no right to know what dangers were probable?

 I guess Cheney and Bush think they can run the country by themselves.

 WARNING: The following information is for entertainment purposes only.
 Kind of like a Dubya "press conference." You don t expect Dubya to do anything
 when he talks about cleaning up corporate corruption, and I don t expect you to
 wager any REAL money on games of football. Ahem & that out of the way,
 let s get on to Week One!

by The Pieman

 Subject: cipro

 your original argument did contain somewhat of a contradiction, in that you state
 both that the Anthrax was directed at Bush's enemies, and that he prepared himself
 for anthrax attacks before they occurred.  In other words, what did he have to fear
 if he knew the anthrax would be sent to his political enemies, and not him?


 WO, it doesn't matter.
 Bush & Cheney should be put under oath on live TV and asked
 why they took Cipro before there was a threat of anthrax

 I think they knew - and it's hard to trust thieves.

 Jeb Bush seen with Negroes

  Click  Here

 Governor Jeb Bush proudly posed for a photo with several negroes today.
 The immense gesture marks the greatest benefit that the African-American
 community will receive from the Governor's One Florida plan.

 For a minute there - I was very confused.  I mean, ...why would a rich,
 white-power Republican in the B.F.E.E. be seen with negroes?

 Then I remembered - it's an election year.

 Last Minute hotel rooms

 I heard about  http://www.travelworm.com

 So, tonight, tried it out, and had it sort by price, and found Fitzgerald's (downtown)
 had weekend rooms for $39/night....but, when I went to reserve, it said 'too late.'

 So went back to the home page & re-sorted by price.  The hotels at the top of
 the page were mid-three-figures, but, scrolled down anyway.

 Seems they aren't sorted in any particular order, and after scrolling down (better than 3/4 of the page)
 there was Fitzgeralds - and, damn, there was that $39 room, and it was available.
 With tax, for a Friday & Saturday, it runs $88.93.

 At this point, I highly recommend travelworm

is down, not sure why.
Perhaps Milt will contact us.
