"In the three decades since Watergate, this is the first potential scandal I have seen that could make
 Watergate pale by comparison. If the Bush Administration intentionally manipulated or misrepresented
 intelligence to get Congress to authorize, and the public to support, military action to take control of Iraq,
 then that would be a monstrous misdeed...To put it bluntly, if Bush has taken Congress and the nation
 into war based on bogus information, he is cooked. Manipulation or deliberate misuse of national security
 intelligence data, if proven, could be "a high crime" under the Constitution's impeachment clause.

 It would also be a violation of federal criminal law, including the broad federal anti-conspiracy statute,
 which renders it a felony "to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose."
     --John W. Dean,  Is Lying An Impeachable Offense?

 Ex-Official: Evidence Distorted for War 

   Click  Here

 The Bush administration distorted intelligence and presented conjecture as evidence to justify a U.S.
 invasion of Iraq according to a retired intelligence official who served during the months before the war.

 In his State of the Union address, Bush said, "The British government has learned that Saddam recently
 sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa."

 The Africa claim rested on a purported letter or letters accepted as forged, and Thielmann said
 he believed the information on Africa was discounted months before Bush mentioned it.

"I was very surprised to hear that be announced to the United States and the entire world," he said.


"Most U.S. senators would rather preserve their own

 I'm a subscriber and I wanted to let you know your site kicks ass.
 I turned my mother on to it and now every conversation I have with her starts,
 "Did you read Bartcop...?" So you've got a couple fans in Rhode Island.

 Did you see "Meet The Press" on Sunday?
 Tim Russert attacked Carol Mosely Braun with such venom, he was practically spitting on her.
 How soon before Tim ends up on Fox News?

 Also, the more I see of Bob Graham, the more I like. I've seen a bunch of stuff on C-Span
 with him and he is pretty open about his contempt for the psychos who are now in power.

 Also wanted to let you know I am enjoying the radio bits.
 Keep putting your foot to the ass of these right-wing extremists.


 Brett, I quit watching Russert.
 You're right, all he does is softball the Murder administration and attack Democrats.
 Russert was FOX News before being FOX News was cool.

 Why Martha and Not Ken Lay?

  Click  Here

 For instance, let's take the allegation that she lied to the FBI. Of course, she lied to the FBI.
 What sane person admits to the FBI that they've committed a crime?
 Yet, lying to investigators isn't usually considered a separate crime.

 Stewart was simply playing by the rules. The government's job is to capture criminals and the
 criminal's job is to avoid capture. However, in this case, Stewart is being charged with the crime
 of not helping the government convict her. This seems strange even by John Ashcroft standards.

 So why isn't Ashcroft going after Kenny Boy Lay?
 Lay stole a thousand times more money from thousands of people.

"Never you mind about who I think needs jailin'.
 Kenny Boy's been on the team for years.  By the way,
 did you know torture is legal in Gitmo, Funnyboy?"

 Subject: The Scott and Laci Peterson Saga

 This mail is not written and sent for publication on your web page.


 I'm confused why someone would take the time to write a detailed letter,
 full of hot points (some good, some bad) and then request, "Don't print this."

 I would've enjoyed the exchange, but I can't spend a lot of time on private letters.
 If I publish the letter, at least the time spent on it is more of an investment.

 It closed with, "I will no longer read your page (though I have enjoyed your
 political commentary) if you continue to defend a man who is most likely guilty..."

 ...and the writer is a lawyer, which tells us what?

 The "likely guilty" aren't worthy of a vigorous defense?
 I thought I was defending a man's right not to be railroaded by a for-sale press.

 And I always appreciate the feedback about what people want to read more or less of,
 but I can't avoid topics because someone says they won't contribute if I mention it.
 That's too much like blackmail, and I don't do blackmail.

 Subject: Advise to the Dems

 Hey Bart-

 I was listening to the Washington Journal this morning and this guy calls in and
 makes a statement that had nothing to do with the topic it went something like...

"Why did Unelected Bush go AWOL in 1972,
  and why did he lie about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction?"

 I thought, "Where did that come from?"
 A bit later I went to yesterdays BC to finish it before reading today's- and there it was.. my answer.


 Democrats want to be led to the Promised Land, but our 'Moses' wears a pink tutu.

 Subject: I think your wrong about Martha Stewart

 I read your page quite faithfully, and consider myself a very liberal person .
 Lately I've been noticing that you seem to be taking Martha Stewart's side in her recent problems,
 if I'm wrong on that please let me know. I personally feel that what she did was wrong whether it
 was $45,000 or $45 million. I think she should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

 I do however completely agree that those other bastards who stole so much more should be indicted.
 I still don't believe Ms.Stewart should get away with what she did no matter how petty in comparison.


 Mac, you have to believe in proportionality.
 The way I understand it (that means don't depend on this) Martha "improperly" made
 $45,000  by selling her stock after a friend told her one day that it was about to tank.

 Meanwhile, Kenny Boy and those types spent years in an off-shore conspiracy to  steal
 hundreds of millions of dollars from the life savings of the Enron employees..

 Compared to Bush's friends, Martha stole a damn used newspaper.
 She shouldn't be put in the same cell as John Gotti or Sammy the Bull.

 Joe Conason's Journal
  Raines drops

 Walking into my favorite saloon the night before last, I ran into an old friend (and superb reporter)
 who works on the New York Times metro desk. Everyone at the paper believes Raines and Boyd
 have to go, he said disconsolately. Now that hope has been fulfilled, presumably to the great relief
 of the staff of the world's most important newspaper.

 I wish both paper and staff well, but I have to wonder whether Joseph Lelyveld, appointed as the
 interim executive editor, will be any great improvement. As editorial page editor Raines bore a
 great responsibility for the Times' errors and excesses during the Clinton era, from Whitewater
 to Wen Ho Lee, yet Lelyveld carries just as much baggage with the same labels.

 Sometimes he  seems thoughtful  about that troubled era;  other times,  far less so.

 I just saw Lucianne ... 'interviewed' on Fox News, about Hillary Clinton's book.
 Does Lucianne think she's a clairvoyant or something?
 She had lots of sordid things to say about Hillary and Bill's private relationship.

 What a sad pathetic old harridan she is.


 Mag, don't be too hard on Luci the Bat.

 She was mistreated when she was young.


 I give the NY Whore Times a good slapping now and then because they deserve it.
 But at least it's possible to get fired from the NYW Times for lying.

 At FOX News, you get promoted for lying.
 I watched a little FOX Saturday night, and their idea of "fair and balanced,"
 is to get five Hillary haters together in a round table so the host can ask,
"Is there a single true sentence in this entire book?"

 About a month after Smirk's media-wide Lincoln Flyboy Fellatiofest,
 they're calling Hillary's new book, "A new record in hype and media manipulation."
 The very same people who said Bush's penis looked so manly in the adult's man suit,
 are now saying that it's "shameless" to manipulate the media the way Hillary is doing.

 Did Hillary keep thousands of brave men from their families to promote her book?
 Did Hillary get a media pass for lying about the need for a plane when a chopper was called for?
 Did Hillary force an aircraft carrier to change it's position so the idiot TV viewers would mistakenly
 conclude that this ship was somewhere besides 30 miles off the San Diego coastline?

 I'm really old, and I've never seen America's entire media fawn over a falsehood
 while giving short-shrift to the facts that are easily provable by anyone with an IQ of 64.

 Subject: B.F.E.E.


 Love the site, but could you please tell us what the initials B.F.E.E. stand for?
 Thanks, we have only been reading BartCop for a month or so and haven't figured it out.
 We're Bushwatch and Buzzflash readers also.  Keep it up.


 Kathy, thanks for the reminder.
 I should mention it more often, since  probably gets 2-3 new readers a day

 It stands for Bush Family Evil Empire, and I should explain.

 Prescott Bush made the family fortune by helping Hitler exterminate Jews in World War II.
 Later, Poppy Bush parlayed that into becoming Director of the CIA, a post he still holds.
 Bush then swindled his way into the presidency in 1980, with the help of the terrorists who
 ran Islamic Jihad and a popular puppet named Ronald Reagan.

 Allowing Reagan to be the patsy who cut ribbons and meet with Boy Scouts, Bush set up a
 worldwide organization that uses CIA intelligence, China, Saudi Arabia (not to mention murder)
 and has more tentacles than a chart of possible JFK shooters.

 This is a "family" in the Tony Soprano sense.  It includes:
the Carlyle Group,
the CIA,
Adnan Khashoggi,
the US Treasury,
Henry Kissinger,
John Major and Tony Blair,
the felons from Iran-Contra, (Schultz, North, Poindexter)
and, to be fair, we must include Osama, Saddam and Noriega, who were hueueueueuge earners
   for the family at one time, but then became convenient scapegoats when a reason was needed for war.

 Interestingly enough, nobody can argue with that list.
 Those are all documented facts and accepted by everyone, but the press refuses to talk about it.

 They're too busy tracking Clinton to see if he got a piece of Kim Kattrall.

 By the way...

 the top 100 scumbags in Connecticut who want to ride in the wagon, ...but not help pay for it.

 FOX knew he was a perverted SOB when they hired him, but he was willing to sling wild and viscious lies,
 especially about Hillary, so FOX decided they couldn't live without his "expertise."

 The Rebel Yell!
  by Subversive Mike

  Click  Here

 A few weeks ago a treasured reader wrote to suggest that we use a Star Wars analogy to examine what's what.
 His point was that a few years ago most of us would have identified more with the intrepid rebels, Luke Skywalker,
 Han Solo and Princess Leia in the Star Wars saga. And that today (according to all the polls) most of us have sided
 with (the Evil) Empire as embodied by the arrogant, cruel and spoiled Emperor Bush over the "force" of Truth and Justice.

 It seems as though most of us prefer to have the American Death Star floating over the world ready to obliterate rebel
 strongholds and outposts rather than make the attempt to understand why folks choose to take up arms against us.
 We like the idea apparently of naked aggression, ambition and power. Of course we don't call it naked aggression,
 ambition and power. It's called Peace, Security and Freedom.

 The Saddam of rock 
  Title earned by the greedy Lars Ulrich of Metallica

  Click  Here

 A high-profile battle to stop illegal file-sharing on Napster tested Metallica's mettle and
 alienated fans who felt their heroes had swallowed the corporate Kool-Aid.

"Lars took so many shots," Hetfield says. "He's still reeling. The image of him was mob-ruled,
 and he became the Saddam of rock. But we had to take a stand. There was no thought
 of the consequences or image management."

 ha ha
 You can say that again...
 If Christian Livemore was managing you guys, I think she would've told James to stuff a sock
 in Lar's mouth and have your attorney shut the hell up about jailing your fans, you idiots.

"We got blindsided by the enormity of it," Ulrich whines. "It started when some guy put a song
 on the Internet that we hadn't finished mixing yet. And I wanted to know where it came from.

"Things took a drastic turn from there. It was never about money and greed; it was about control.
 I have no problem giving (music) away, but I want to decide what to give."

 Oh, so that's why you threatened to imprison fans who illegally listened to your music?
 It wasn't about grabbing every nickle in metaldom, it was about control?  So you had your
 lawyer threaten your fans with the goddamn RICO statutes, with mandatory sentences?

 Governments Lie - Democracy in Crisis
     by Carla Binion - as seen on

  Click  Here

 Democrats in Congress who think they'll accomplish more for the country by pretending lies are
 "intelligence failures" and appeasing Bush and his anti-democratic, neo-conservative administration
 are in denial. What's needed now is for the Democratic leadership and all Americans with conscience
 to get themselves informed enough to notice we're in another time of crisis.

 The best way to do that is to acquire news from the wide variety and vast number of newspaper
 and magazine articles published on the Internet, and to visit the many quality political Internet web sites.
 As those of us who already get our news online know, you won't be adequately informed if you rely on
 TV news programs or a single newspaper for information about the damage the Bush cabal is doing and
 the extent of their manipulation. It would also be helpful for those of us who get our news online to pass it
 along to offline friends and others.

 If you get your news from newspapers, radio or TV, you're only getting the spin
 Mr Rove and Unka Dick want you to have about our brave, war-hero president
