Quote of the Day
"Voters would rather flip burgers and
Maybe it's because Bush always seems drunk.
"All told, more than 3,000 suspected terrorists
have been arrested in many countries.
Many others have met a different fate. Let's put it this way -- they are no longer a
problem to the United States (big smirk on his face when he mentioned killing people)
and our friends and allies. We have the terrorists on the run. We're keeping them
on the run. One by one, the terrorists are learning the meaning of American justice."

...and the Red Cross says up to 90 percent of "the terrorists"
but Bush enjoyed murdering them just the same.
Warns of Al Qaeda Attack But ...No Details
Bush wants us to live in fear - it makes him a "war president"
They said an attack could coincide with a number of upcoming high-profile events, starting with
Memorial Day this weekend and continuing through the November presidential election.
"They want to do something spectacular," one mysterious
federal law enforcement official said
referring to al Qaeda. John Ashcroft and FBI Director Mueller called a news conference to
discuss the threat
and seek the
public's help. so they could scare
the voters towards Bush.
The officials said the United States has
obtained intelligence deemed credible, but not specific,
on place, time or method of an attack. They said it could involve a chemical, biological or nuclear weapon.
America - put your faith in the BFEE - they will protect you.
"In the last 32 months, history has placed
great demands on our country.
We did not seek this war on terror. But this is the world as we find it."
Impeach this ass for lying!
He wanted war even before he was selected by the crooked judges!
He said, "F--- Saddam, ...we're taking him out," 6 months before we invaded.
"We love out Dubya - we can't impeach our war president!"

its authenticity as evidence grows that the event took place from inside Abu Ghraib prison.

Subject: The reason for W's "tumble
>From the White House press release:
"President Bush took a spill during a Saturday
afternoon bike ride on his ranch, suffering bruises
and cuts that were visible later on his face just two days before he was to deliver a major
prime-time speech on his Iraq policy.
The president was nearing the end of a 17-mile
ride on his mountain bike, accompanied by a
Secret Service agent, a military aide and his personal physician, Richard Tubb, who treated him
at the scene, said White House spokesman Trent Duffy.
"It's been raining a lot and the topsoil is loose,"
"You know this president. He likes to go all-out. Suffice it to say he wasn't whistling show tunes."
Soooo... it's been raining a lot in Crawford,
we are told.
Here are the recent precipitation levels from Crawford:
May 22: 0"
May 21: 0"
May 20: 0"
May 19: 0"
May 18: 0"
May 17: 0"
May 16: 0"

May 13: 2.79"
May 12: 0"
May 11: 0.15"
May 10: 0"
May 9: 0"
May 13th saw some serious rain, but other
than some sprinkles on the 14th,
Crawford saw nothing but sun. In the last week alone, the temperature was in the high 80s the entire time.
So rain on the 13th and (barely) 14th was
blamed for a Bush fall on the 22nd.
As everything else, it wasn't Bush's fault. Nothing is Bush's fault. Ever.
It would be so easy to joke, "The president is known for his graceful moves,"
and make light out of his clumsy ass, but lying always pops into their heads first.
And had this been Clinton, Barr and Burton would've held hearings
to see if there might be a "pattern of lying" from this president.
If only our side had 10 percent of the chutzpa those
"In press conferences, television ads, and
interviews this year, President Bush has manifested
a series of psychopathologies: an abstract notion of reality; confidence unhinged from facts and
circumstances; and a conception of credibility that requires no correspondence to the external world.
Tonight, as he vowed to stay the course in Iraq, Bush demonstrated another mental defect:
incomprehension of his role in history as a fallible human agent. Absent such comprehension,
Bush can't fix his mistakes in Iraq, because he can't see how - or even that - he screwed up."

Speech Offers Nothing New
by Joe Conason
None of what the President said on Monday evening was news to anyone who, unlike him, reads newspapers.
Although Mr. Bush has previously acknowledged
that there is as yet no convincing evidence of a link between
the former Iraqi regime and Al Qaeda, he repeated that same old canard on Monday evening. He described Iraq
as the "central front in the war on terror," and went on to say "terrorist" or "terrorism" approximately every 90
seconds. Cynical observers might think this was an attempt to halt declining public support for his Iraq policy
by reminding voters that they support his efforts against the perpetrators of 9/11.

"Don't let Republicans create an America we won't recognize."
Iranian Spy in the House of Bush
by William Rivers Pitt
Chalabi was the head of the Iraqi National Congress, a group organized to overthrow Saddam.
Chalabi was a beloved ally of Rumsfeld and Cheney pre-2000; Chalabi and his group were the
impetus behind the passage of the Iraqi Liberation Act in 1998, legislation advocated loudly by
Rumsfeld, Cheney and the neo-conservatives who now occupy this government.
The attacks of September 11 made Ahmad Chalabi.
The Bush administration had already decided
to attack Iraq, and then began casting about for evidence to support that decision. Rumsfeld organized
the Office of Special Plans, the purpose of which was to cherry-pick intelligence reports that made Iraq
appear to be an imminent threat. Representatives of the OSP - Cheney, "Scooter" Libby, and Newt Gingrich
- visited the CIA to browbeat the analysts into "toughening up" their analyses of the Iraqi threat..
Just think - if some Iranian spy tricked Clinton into dragging
America into a quagmire
that got 800 soldiers killed, they would've impeached him the day the first soldier died.
...but the Democrats just sit there, shaking in their chairs at the thought of angering Mr Rove.
In a stunning move, filmmaker Michael Moore says his latest film, "Fahrenheit 9/11"
will be released by BitTorrent, the popular peer-to-peer file-sharing network.
"This film deserves the widest possible distribution,"
said Moore. "I had hoped
I could achieve that with Miramax and Disney, but such was not to be the case.
I'm thrilled to announce that I have an even better solution. BitTorrent!"
Damn, I'm guess Moore's passing up tens
of millions of dollars doing this.
You can tell he's a Democrat - he doesn't NEED hundreds of millions to be happy.
Personally, I have at least two problems
- Both times I tried to get to bittorrent.com my IE froze up - I guess they're busy.
- I can't do this peer-to-peer deals because my modem light never shuts off,
and I'm too busy down-loading and up-loading to have by transfer rate slowed down.
So, I'm still willing to pay for a copy.
I'd like to send the $20 to Moore,
but I'd give a 90-day subscription to BCR to whoever can send me his movie on a DVD
We'll put snippetts on BCR.

Bill Nevins, a New Mexico high school teacher and personal friend, was fired last year
and classes in poetry and the poetry club at Rio Rancho High School were permanently
terminated. It had nothing to do with obscenity, but it had everything to do with extremist politics.
In March 2003, a teenage girl named Courtney
presented one of her poems before an audience
at Barnes & Noble bookstore, then read the poem live on the school's closed-circuit television channel.
A school military liaison and the high school
principal accused the girl of being "un-American" because
she criticized the war in Iraq and Bush's failure to give substance to its "No child left behind" education policy.
The girl's mother, also a teacher, was
ordered by the principal to destroy the child's poetry.
The mother refused and may lose her job.
Bill Nevins was suspended for not censoring
the poetry of his students. Remember, there is
no obscenity to be found in any of the poetry. He was later fired by the principal.
Then to all students and faculty who did
not share his political opinions, the principal shouted: "Shut your

Jones: Running from the heart
by Gene Lyons
Man O' War's 1938 match race against War Admiral got more ink in American newspapers that
year than Hitler and Mussolini. Nothing like that appears likely to happen to this year's Triple Crown
contender, Smarty Jones, although heaven knows we could all use a diversion. Things are lousy on the
political front, and polls show Americans feeling apprehensive and uneasy. But there's far too much
competition for attention in today's diffuse and omnipresent news media, and these days you can place
a bet on almost anything. Even so, millions of Americans who don't have a dime on the race will cheer
themselves hoarse watching Smarty Jones make his stretch run at the Belmont on June 5 and, win or lose,
an awful lot of them will have tears in their eyes.

A Shadow on the Land
They've brought America to its knees. They're a ruthless band of fundamentalist religious fanatics
that respect no international laws and seem destined to cause only death, misery, and destruction.
They strike without warning using stealth, torture, lies, and deception to rain down violence without
regard to innocent lives lost. They cynically exploit the World's media. They constantly invoke the
name of their God, to justify every cruel act for their holy cause. They'll use and sacrifice innocent
believing kids as warriors. Most of the world already hates and fears them, and no country on
Earth is safe from their rage or terror. They are the new evil in the World.
So much for the Bush folks.
Those al-Qaida guys are no picnic either.

"It's regrettable that this president is never
going to admit any shortcomings, much less failure.
That's an aspect of Mr. Bush's character that we have to live with. But we cannot live without
a serious plan for doing more than just getting through the June 30 transition and then muddling
along until the November elections in the United States. The president still has a number of
speeches left to deliver before June 30. We hope he will use them to come up with a more specific plan,
to stop listing the things we already knew needed to be done and to explain to us how he intends
to do them. An acknowledgment of past mistakes would be nice."

Subject: You're making a difference
Just so you know: I started reading your
site in early 2001: it was great to see somebody as steamed
as I was about the election and the quasi-legal government it forced upon us. Then after 9/11 it was great
to see a patriotic liberal taking on both the terrorists and the government that failed to protect us from them.
But after November 2002 I felt that I just
had to get off the computer and actually do something. So -- I haven't
been to your site much over the past year, but in that time I've become a precinct chair, an officer in the local
Young Democrats, and -- as of our district convention last weekend -- a delegate to the national convention.

Watermarks Prove Berg and Abuse Cameras Were the Same?
This is a question being asked - so far there's no proof of anything
The following is from a Yahoo message board...
Word is spreading around Kodak Park here
in Rochester NY. And will break on national
News tonite (5-25) that Kodak film experts have analyzed the Nick Berg video and some
of the Abu Grhaib Prison videos comparing them for certain encrypted recording signatures.
Each video camera leaves a certain signature
mark, much like a fingerprint or striation
markings on bullets in gun barrels. Same goes for CD-ROM Burners, they leave a trace
or type of Cookies on the finished product.
These are tested by computer and not
visible by the naked eye. Experts here after lunch
have concluded that one of the 2 video cameras used in the Nick Berg "beheading" was
also used to film US troop abuses of Iraqi detainees.
THIS is BAD news for BushCorp., Military,
Granted, a Yahoo message board isn't proof of anything, but at
least people are talking about it.

Get Your War On, (c) 2004 by my good friend David Rees. Used with permission
Whore Times Finds Faults in Its Iraq Coverage
A fake apology from the rah-rah, 'Bush is great,' we-love-war NY Whore Times
The New York Times printed an unusual critique Wednesday of its own reporting on Iraq,
saying it should have been more skeptical about some claims from Iraqi dissidents and more
aggressive in following them up.
YOU are lying. YOU are Karl Rove's puppet and now the BFEE's in trouble so YOU are simply covering your ass.
YOU printed every lie Karl Rove sent you so YOU could make more money - like Clear Channel and FOX News
In an article labeled as being ``From the
Editors,'' the newspaper said it found ``a number of instances of
coverage that was not as rigorous as it should have been'' and said it sometimes ``fell for misinformation''
from exile Iraqi sources, as did the administration and other news organizations.
"Fell for misinformation?"
You're lying - you intentionally supported Bush's illegal war because YOU are whores without ethics.
Like the BFEE, YOU have no problem with making money of the deaths of innocent women and children.
``In some cases, information that was controversial
then, and seems questionable now, was insufficiently
qualified or allowed to stand unchallenged,'' the editors wrote. ``Looking back, we wish we had been
more aggressive in re-examining the claims as new evidence emerged or failed to emerge.''
An apology means nothing if you're going to lie your way thru the apology. Admit YOU played along with
Rove and with Bush and disregarded the facts and stabbed honesty in the back. Admit YOU threw out ethics
when Clinton was president and maybe YOU could start to earn our trust if YOU start telling the truth again
like a legitimate newspaper is supposed to. Stop taking cues from Drudge and the vulgar Pigboy.
The paper did not single out a single reporter
or editor but attributed the faults to several factors: editors
``at several levels'' who should have pressed reporters for more skepticism but instead were ``perhaps too
intent on rushing scoops into the paper''; failing to balance the accounts of Iraqi defectors against their desire
to get rid of Saddam Hussein; and not giving enough prominence to findings that called earlier articles into question.
There you go again - lie after lie. Even Bart Simpson lies
better than The Old Gray Whore. A whore takes the money
and then follows orders - that's YOU, the once trusted New York Whore Times. YOU didn't give a damn how
many thousands of innocent Iraqi's died for Bush's oil grab, YOU just knew you could sell more papers by waving
the flag and standing by the never-elected, blood-thirsty Texacutioner.
Media critics have been calling for months
for the Times to assess its own pre-war coverage of Iraq, especially on
the issue of weapons of mass destruction. In their note, Times editors wrote that while they have examined various
official actions leading up to the war in the last year, it was ``past time'' that they evaluate their own coverage.
Oh, suck me.
What you're doing right now - pretending YOU made
"mistakes" is just another attempt to make more money
because America is beginning to see the truth about the snot-nosed punk YOU helped push into power.
All those hundreds of false stories YOU printed
about Al Gore are coming back to haunt YOU.
YOU crowned the stupid little boy King of America in the summer of 2000 so the thousands of innocent
Iraqis and the soon-to-be 1,000 dead American soldiers are partly on YOU - the New York Whore Times.
Don't think we forgot that YOU fabricated that entire
Whitewater charade in an attempt to screw the last elected
president America ever had. Whitewater was dead and buried but YOU kept running stories that YOU knew would
be echoed oin the massive, wall-to-wall GOP hate machine and your lies were almost rewarded with the removal of
our best president ever - and now you want to pretend "mistakes were made?" YOU are still a whore paper.

"The most newsworthy story related to the incredible
shrinking _resident's speech Monday night
is that the three major networks didn't televise it live. It was billed as a very important speech,
it was a prime-time speech, it was being positioned as one that would be carried by the networks
-- just as the incredible shrinking _resident's recent embarrassing press conference was broadcast live.
So what happened? Were they doing the White House a favor by NOT broadcasting it?

Our "president' is such an embarrassment, the networks did him
a favor by not putting his emotional landslide
on national television because they thought it would scare the public. Seeing the bumbling idiot attempt to speak only
emboldens our enemies. They can't believe that "the Great Satan" being run by a monkey who can't speak or think.

Subject: The American Lie
If you think America is about freedom, then
you are truly stupid.
America is about white power.
Drive across America and see who owns the
farmlands. Look at the picture of Emmett Till, from Chicago,
who was murdered in Mississippi in 1954. Look at the insane Jim Crow Laws used against Black Americans
for decades. Read about Wounded Knee. Go to the prisons in America and see who is behind bars.
It's mainly Blacks and Hispanics.
But the very dangerous conservative Right Wingers think they can wrap an
American flag around any crimes committed by this non-elected administration, and America will accept it.
Racist Christians are running the country right now. We as people must take charge of our country, and make it
what it should be. Let us as Americans stop thinking we have the right to run the world because we are told that
we are the good guys in the world. Americans are the only people on the planet who believe this lie.
The days of the White so-called hero of
the world is over. True power does not come out of the barrel of
or from a pulpit. It comes from truth and respect for all humankind. Treat all people the way you want to be treated.
America has been drunk for too long on pretty words. We think we are these words just because our brain-washed
educators and preachers and politicians tell us we are great as a nation, and that we and only we Americans know
what is best for the world and all people of it.
The truth is, America and it's actions are based on one word: Profit!
Subject: Toe sucker predicts Kerry/Clinton ticket
I heard the toe-sucking Dick Morris on a
San Francisco radio station today.
As much as I dislike the guy, he often is right and he does know his stuff.
Morris predicts John Kerry will choose Hillary as his VP running mate. Here's why:
- Hillary has been saying for months - "I'm
not running for Vice President".
Well, nobody runs for Vice President - you get asked by the nominee.
- Hillary will bring many women to the polls
for the Dems. Hillary doesn't need to deliver
New York for Kerry - he's already got it locked up. But she can serve a far greater role
- bringing millions of women - especially younger women - who admire her independence
and fierceness to the polls nationwide.
- By accepting the VP nomination, Hillary
sets herself up for an eventual run for the Presidency.
If Kerry loses to Bush in 2004 (shudder) Hillary becomes the defacto nominee for 2008.
If Kerry wins in 2004 and is re-elected in 2008 Hillary becomes the heir apparent.
- Hillary has no where else to go at this
point. Word is that Rudy Giuliani will be running against
her for the Senate seat in NY in 2006. If Rudy wins she's embarrassed and out of a job. If Hillary
wins she just gets to keep the same job she already has. There is no upside for her to stay where she is.
- Lastly, Bill is laying the groundwork
for her in his upcoming book. Clinton's new book is going to
be a runaway bestseller just like Hillary's book was last year and with Hillary on the ticket she'll bring
a lot of Bill's cache to Kerry's campaign.
Kerry/Clinton - 2004! Watch for it!

"President Bush's "everything's-going-to-work-out-fine-in-Iraq"
Monday night ran into a slight logistical problem; the speech was a television ratings flop,
attracting just 6.2 million viewers. That's 35 million fewer than tuned into Bush's primetime
press conference last month, and 56 million fewer than watched his 2003 State of the Union address."
--Eric Boehlert, Attribution
by Joe Conason
Burdened by his record low poll ratings, the president of the United States sought Monday
night to convince the nation and the world that he knows what he is doing in Iraq. He succeeded
only in proving that he has no new ideas and no plausible plan -- except to tear down that prison
whose name he cannot pronounce.
Americans are losing confidence in President
Bush, not so much because they distrust his motives,
although many do, as because they question his competence. The aggressive unilateralism once
regarded by Bush's political strategists as their most powerful domestic political weapon is now
turned around and pointing straight at them.
Subject: tearing down Abu Graib prison
Bush wants to waste taxpayers money by tearing
down Abu Ghraib Prison
because of the U.S. torture scandal and build a new prison at our expense.
I find it amazing that Bush thinks that
rape, torture, and murder problems can
be solved by tearing down a building. If that kind of reasoning made sense
then maybe we should tear down the White House to solve the national debt.
