"Substitute Bill Clinton for Bush over the past six months. What would TV talking heads be saying today?
  William Kristol, Sean Hannity and the others would be demanding Clinton's impeachment. They would be
  screaming that there were no weapons of mass destruction and Clinton knew it. He lied to the U.N., to the
  American people, and he deliberately and unnecessarily placed American troops in harm's way."
   -- Ed Garvey, The Capital Times (Madison, WI), May 13, 2003

 Bush, Blair Face Heat on Iraq Weapons 
  For the first time in his life, will Bush be held accountable for something?

  Click  Here

 Senior politicians on both sides of the Atlantic want answers to what is becoming
 the most asked question since major combat ended in Iraq:  Where are the WMD
 the coalition said it went to war to destroy?

 Bush said this weekend that weapons had already been found.  As evidence,
 though, he pointed to two suspected biological laboratories which both the Pentagon
 and U.S. weapons hunters have said do not constitute arms.

 The poor Bush boy has been caught lying again..
 He's learning that the European press doesn't back up every lie he tells like their good
 puppy American counterparts. In Europe, it's possible to read the truth in the papers

"I don't understand - the press doesn't play ball in Europe?


"Conservative news organizations are popular, he admitted, because they feed the rage. We bring the pain to the
  liberal media. I say that mockingly, but it's true somewhat.... While these hand-wringing Freedom Forum types talk
  about objectivity, the conservative media likes to rap the liberal media on the knuckles for not being objective.
  We've created this cottage industry in which it pays to be un-objective.... It's a great way to have your cake and
  eat it too. Criticize other people for not being objective. Be as subjective as you want. It's a great little racket."
    -- Matt Labash, senior writer with The Weekly Standard

 And since the Democrats and the media refuse to call them on it, they get away with that
 "fair and balanced" horseshit all the time knowing it's a stupid and clumsy lie.

 Eric Rudolph (R-Killer) faces six federal explosive counts. The charges stem from the explosion
 in Atlanta's Olympic Centennial Park during the 1996 Olympics; a 1998 bombing at an abortion
 clinic in Birmingham, Ala.; and 1997 bombings in Atlanta outside a gay nightclub and an office
 building that housed an abortion clinic.

 Lack of accountability to the media seems to have followed Bush from the
 Governor's Mansion in Austin.  "The Texas Observer once opined that if the
 press corps' noses got any closer to Dubya's behind, reporters would be in
 violation of the state sodomy laws."

"I'm not reading this. This is bullshit."
     --Colin Powell's honest assessment of the WMD speech he eventually gave at the UN

  Click  Here

 US News and World Report magazine said the first draft of the speech was prepared for Powell
 by Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis "Scooter" Libby, in late January.

 According to the report, the draft contained such questionable material that Powell lost his temper,
 throwing several pages in the air and declaring, "I'm not reading this. This is bullshit."

 But like every Republican, Colin knuckled under to Whitey, trading dignity and honesty for power.
 Colin, you let Bush murder 8,000 Iraqi's just to keep your fancy job in Massa Bush's Big House?

 You let the idiot Bush boy blow the arms off of that little Iraqi kid, and had his parents murdered?

    "Thank you, Colin!"

 You're going to Hell, Colin - I can guarantee that (if there was a hell)
 What made you do it, Colin?
 What made you turn whore for the white supremacists?

 How can you live with yourself, knowing that thousands are dead
 because you didn't have enough character to do the right thing?

 He was hanging horizontally and his frightened face was in close-up. A soldier driving the fork-lift
 truck could be seen in the background, staring at his victim and apparently laughing.
 Another picture showed a pair of white legs and the head of a male Iraqi. The hand of a man
 behind the Iraqi’s head appeared to be forcing him to perform oral sex.

 The Iraqi was squatting and again appeared to be at least naked to the waist.
 The soldier’s face was not visible.  A third picture showed a pair of bare backsides.
 One Iraqi man was on his knees on the floor with his body bent.

 Another was pressed behind him, tightly moulding his body like a spoon in what seemed to be a
 sexual position.  The fourth snap showed two naked Iraqis cowering on the ground as if thrown there..

 "So this tied up sand nigger is hanging from this
   fork lift with his dick out and the other one is
   forced to blow him while the Brits take pictures."

"The administration's antiterror campaign makes me think of the way television studios really look.
  The fancy set usually sits in the middle of a shabby room, full of cardboard and duct tape.
  Networks take great care with what viewers see on their TV screens; they spend as little
  as possible on anything off camera."
    -- Paul Krugman, "Paths of Glory," the New York Whore Times, May 16, 2003.


 Here's a letter I sent to Crossfire today:

"Having seen Bush's tearful visit to Auschwitz on CNN, I too weep for the Jewish victims
 of the Nazi concentration camps.  What I didn't see on CNN was mention that in 1942
 Bush's grandfather, Prescott Bush, had his Union Bank of NYC assets seized by the US
 government under the Trading with the Enemy Act for subsidizing the Nazi war machine.
 Nor indeed was their mention of the Pentagon's announcement last week that they have plans
 to turn Guantanamo Bay into a Nazi-style death camp complete with execution chambers.

 Johnny in Austin, Texas"


 Johnny, it's my opinion that Gitmo has been an execution chamber for a long time.
 When Bush announced that he had "Kill on my whim" powers, he also said there would
 be no trials for these POWs. That was our notice that the torture and killing had begun.

 Who's going to stop him?
 He can legally murder anyone he wants.
 Taliban POWs, Saddam, Paul Wellstone - you name anyone, Bush can legally murder him.

 I blame the Democrats.

 Homeland Security-Gate? Texas tussle stirs up a scandal
  How will the Democrats find a way to cave in on this one?

  Click  Here

 Once the Democrats were away, the cops played. When state House Speaker Tom Craddick ordered
 the Texas Department of Public Safety to round up the strays, the lawmen tackled their assignment with zeal.
 They even issued what looked like an arrest warrant with the legislators' home addresses and Texas driver's
 license numbers -- even though, even now, no one has made clear exactly what law was broken.

 Then came the notorious phone call in which a still-unidentified DPS agent tried to enlist the help of the
 Homeland Security Department in the search for the runaway legislators. According to folks at the federal
 agency, the agent did so by misleading them into thinking that a plane full of lawmakers might have crashed.
 Given the agency's mission, the implication must have been that terrorism might be involved.

 Was this the desperate act of a lone police officer? We may never know. The DPS has destroyed many of
 the documents related to the search, claiming that federal regulations required it to purge intelligence
 information not related to a criminal investigation. What arrogance. The Republicans turned DPS into their
 private security force. They tried to involve Homeland Security. Then they wanted to draft the FBI.


"If you've ever wondered what John Ashcroft would do when faced with a choice between defending
  an energy company and discouraging slavery and murder in the developing world, the unappetizing
  answer may be found here. FindLaw columnist and Human Rights Watch attorney Joanne Mariner
  explains how the Justice Department, in its zeal to protect Unocal, is seeking to destroy the Alien
  Tort Claims Act -- the law that allows people injured by serious violations of international law abroad
  to seek civil damages in American courts against perps based in the United States.

 Rehnquist, O'Connor Mull Retirement
  Will the Democrats bend over on this one, too?

  Click  Here

There has been intense partisan acrimony in the Senate over some of Bush's choices to fill federal judgeships.
 If a justice steps down this summer, there is a possibility of a political stalemate that would leave the job unfilled for months.

 None of the nine current justices has announced plans to retire, but for reasons of age and politics Rehnquist, 78,
 and O'Connor, 73,  are considered the most likely candidates.  Each has served decades on the court and would
 prefer to leave while they have their health.  Rehnquist was named to the court by Nixon and O'Connor by Reagan.
 Both justices are part of the court's conservative wing and would prefer that a Republican president pick a successor.

 These two crooked judges appointed The Fraud, over the wishes of the voters, who will pick their replacements.
 If the Democrats allow this incestuous rape to continue to reproduce, I fear the very worst for this country.
 The crooks appoint their successors, who will only appoint other crooks.

 Watching the Sunday morning talk shows - I am so sick of Democrats with cotton balls.

 One after another, when asked if Bush lied about Iraqs WMD, every Democrat gave Bush
 the benefit of the doubt and blamed "intelligence failures" for Bush's illegal murder spree.
 A legitimate scandal that killed thousands is dumped in the laps of these weak-ass pink tutus.

 Not one of them thought it was even worth questioning the horrid little fraud.
 These puny and gutless cowards don't deserve to win any more elections.
 We need to replace 80 percent of them with anybody else.

 Dean, Kerry and the rest - where the hell are you? Can't you get invited on any talk shows?
 Or were you so mealy-mouthed last time, that the networks can't have their audience go to sleep?

 I saw life in Bob Graham, who had the courage to mention Bush's secret 9-11 report,
 on CNN with Wolf the Whore, but the "Democrats" on Meet the Whore, Face the Whore and
 This Whore with Judas Maximus were nothing but a gaggle of yellow-streaked pussies who
 are begging for approval from Mr. Rove.

 Democrats have no desire to compete, much less win.
 I just can't hardly take it any more.


"Rove directs his man Bush like no other president in American history has been ordered about
  by an ostensible subordinate. Rove thinks. Bush acts. Rove is politically astute and clever.
  The president is intellectually lazy, and would just as soon pump iron and play video games
  and let others write the script."

 So, Where Are Those Iraqi Weapons?
  by Helen Thomas, the only non-whore at Bush's White House

  Click  Here

"The Central Intelligence Agency is investigating the accuracy of the Bush administration's conclusions that Iraq
  represented an imminent and direct threat to the United States. The administration cited U.S. intelligence
  assessments that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction and had ties to al-Qaida terrorists as reasons
  to attack Iraq. Now, after seven weeks of U.S. occupation of Iraq, the failure to find evidence supporting
  those accusations raises the prospect that Bush, Powell, Rumsfeld and other administration officials either
  exaggerated the danger to justify the invasion of Iraq or were misled by flawed intelligence...It is up to Bush
  to clear up the confusion. Some might say, "So what? We got rid of the brutal dictator Saddam Hussein and
  liberated the Iraqis." But that would ignore the duty of our elected leaders to level with the American people.
  And it would ignore the public's duty to demand that accountability."

 So, the CIA is investigating their appointed boss?
 I'm on pins & needles, waiting for them to indict their appointed boss.

 Weapons: a question of trust 
  Were the threat reports of WMD "sexed up?"

  Click  Here

 Donald Rumsfeld has admitted that the elusive weapons may never be found, suggesting that Saddam
 may have destroyed them before the war. Mr Rumsfeld's deputy, Paul Wolfowitz, asserts that disarming
 the Iraqi dictator was only 'a bureaucratic reason' for attack. Even more disturbingly for Mr Blair, a senior
 intelligence official claims that Downing Street wanted the dossier outlining Saddam's threat 'sexed up'
 and that information was included against security services' advice.

"This is what I don't understand: All of a sudden nothing seems to matter. First, they said they
 wanted Bin Laden "dead or alive." But they didn't get him. So now they tell us that it doesn't matter.
 Our mission is greater than one man. Then they said they wanted Saddam Hussein, "dead or alive."
 He's apparently alive but we haven't got him yet, either. However, President Bush told reporters
 recently, "It doesn't matter. Our mission is greater than one man." Finally, they told us that we were
 invading Iraq to destroy their weapons of mass destruction. Now they say those weapons probably
 don't exist. Maybe never existed. Apparently that doesn't matter either. Except that it does matter."

 W at Auschwitz - Heir to the Holocaust

"Right this way Mr. Bush.
  This is where the slaves
  started your family fortune."

  Click  Here

 President Bush, appearing almost uncomfortable, read a statement that said that humanity was
"bound by conscience to remember what happened" and that "the record has been kept and preserved."

 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 Union Bank records) and US
 government archives, W'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.

 Bush says we need to remember about The Nazi's and their allies - I agree.

 Hitler, Osama, Saddam, Noriega, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezzbollah - with the B.F.E.E., it's about the money.
 And if a few thousand (or million) have to die to make the Bush Family richer, that's the price of doing business.

 The book doesn’t dispute the fact that the president has a problem with the English language, but Miller
 is the likely the first author on record to note that Mr. Bush can speak deftly when he means it.

"This is an impressive crowd, the haves, and the have-mores. Some people call you the elite. I call you my base."
 (LAUGHTER)    —Al Smith Memorial Dinner in New York, 10/19/00

 Conversely, Miller notes that Bush stumbles when he either has no interest in issue, or is just lying:

 Las Vegas is hurting
  Bush recession killed tourism

  Click  Here

 During the torrid '90s, the spotlight in Las Vegas shifted from slot machines to elaborate themed resorts.
 A faux Eiffel Tower, Empire State Building, roller coasters and Venetian canals became part of the city's landscape.
 That hotel casino building boom, in which richly detailed themed resorts became the attractions, drew waves of
 tourists and lessened the city's reliance on gamblers for its income.

 But luring tourists requires a healthy economy.

 I understand Paris Las Vegas is having the toughest time because the Unelected Tantrum needed a scapegoat
 when the whole world begged him to knock off his plans to murder Baghdad and steal their oil.

 Saturday, MSGOP, the second-most slanderous "rah-rah Bush" network said the Unelected Tantrum
 was "having a lot of trouble getting over his anger at the French."

 Well, someone ough to tell the spoiled little snot that it's not about him.
 If he was a real president, he'd consider America's interests before those of the B.F.E.E..

 Thinking about Vegas makes me homesick

 Remember the party we had just last September?

 Click  Here

 We had to be at the K-Drag International at 5AM for the damn 7AM flight,  so we ran out of steam soon after
 the Friday night bus ride and crashed early.  Crashing early is a sin in Vegas, but they forgive sins there, what the hell...

 But crashing early means waking up early. We woke up at 4:30 and couldn't  get back to sleep so we did what any couple
 approaching 50 would do.  Since we'd just left a tequilafest, and had another, bigger one to attend in 15 hours, we decided
 to party like teenagers - after all, this is the nastiest, greediest, gaudiest, hedonistic, most self-indulgent city of crass wantonism
 and perversion in the world,  ...or so I was told by the people who refused to consider attending this Fest.

 Click  Here  to see Steve's excellent slide presentation


 I can hardly function since Bush came into office. I can't believe it happened.
 It's just one outrage after another, and about all I do now is drink and cry.
 Thank you for keeping on--for your humor, your anger and intelligence.
 Your site helps sustain me... and I might not even bother to try if it weren't
 for my daughter, who will be three in August; who is an American and a citizen
 of the world, and for whose sake I hope that there is still some reason to hope.
