Quote of the Day
"Too bad for anyone who tuned in to Bush's
"Instead of containing terrorism, instead of
effectively fighting terrorism and its causes,
this war has given terrorists a field day. There were no terrorists to speak of in Iraq.
It was not a terrorist state, it was a Stalinist state. You know, not for nothing did bin Laden
say of Saddam Hussein, "he's an infidel." Saddam Hussein would no more permit terrorists
in his country than I would in my backyard."

picks CIA man (employee) to rule Iraq
That means they will be stealing oil after they lose power (if that ever happens)
Iyad Allawi, a former member of Saddam Hussein's Baath party who worked with the CIA
to topple him, was chosen as prime minister of Iraq Friday.
Charged with taking over from occupation
authorities on June 30 and leading Iraq to its first free
elections next year, Allawi's nomination emerged by consensus at a meeting of Iraq's Governing Council.
The UN, called in by Washington to help
shape the new interim government, was caught off guard
when the Governing Council announced Allawi had been chosen, but said it respected the decision.
"It's not how we expected it to happen," chief U.N. spokesman Fred Eckhard said in New York.
So - Bush installs an employee to be the
BFEE puppet while they prepare for "free" elections.
Gee, will they be as "free" as the election that was held in 2000 in Florida?
"I think it's pretty grim, I think he has trashed
the economy, and I think he has conducted
foreign policy badly, and I think he is a bad President. I don't know what he has done well."

Virgin Mary Statue Found Hanging Near Church
A parishioner saw the life-size statue of the Virgin Mary hanging by a garden hose
when he was on his morning walk by St. Catherine's Church.
"I wasn't sure what I saw," parishioner Michael
"I looked again, and I saw a statue hanging on the property."
Police are treating the vandalism as a hate
crime and said the vandal struck sometime overnight.
"It's not something we want to see here," Capt. Bill Irving said. "We're doing our best to try to
find out who's responsible for this."
Look for neighborhhod kids witrh nothing to do or some crazed former Catholic who was

Subject: Iraq update
Bart, I'm still driving truck over here
in Iraq and wanted to give you a short update.
Soldiers ride shotgun in our trucks on the convoys. At first I was hesitant to talk politics
with them because I assumed they were big time Bush supporters.
Well the last three that have rode with
me I've asked straight up "Hey I'm just curious,
but do most of the soldiers you know support what Bush is doing and his re-election".
So far the response of every single one
has been the same - THEY LAUGHED OUT LOUD!
They have all gone on to tell me that everyone they know is really disappointed in Bush and
feel he has messed things up badly.
Keep up the good work,
Hugh, I mailed your BCR CDs today, and be careful out there.....
"The Bush administration's rap on John Kerry
is that he is inconsistent. The president's virtue,
on the other hand, is supposedly his consistency. But to stick to the same rhetoric when the facts
have changed, to insist on what is palpably false, to render black as white and to say it all with a
childlike faith in civics class bromides is not commendable consistency. It is instead the mark of
a narrow mind overwhelmed by large events."

President Bush might prefer to skip Memorial Day this year. In the buildup to the invasion of Iraq, he sold us
a fantasy of military triumph with minimal American deaths. Most people bought it. He tries to maintain that fantasy
by flying in the coffins while the nation is asleep. Bush has yet to appear at a memorial service for a dead soldier.
That would be too clear an admission that
in war, even American soldiers die. Perhaps it would make the President
uncomfortable to directly face the coffin and family of even one dead soldier. It might disturb his sleep, at least for
a couple of nights. But then again, maybe it wouldn't. His lack of empathy is frightening.
The media, however, marks the passing of
each soldier. Every day in my newspaper, a box lists the names of the
American soldiers who have died the day before, and keeps a running total of those who have made the ultimate
sacrifice for this bizarre fantasy of empire. A prime time news show has run the photos and names of the young
men and women who had died up to that point. The Doonsbury cartoon strip will devote this Memorial
weekend to listing all the dead soldiers..

Al Gore Links Abu Ghraib to Bush Policy
George Bush promised to change the tone in Washington. And indeed he did. As many as 37 prisoners
may have been murdered while in captivity, though the numbers are difficult to rely upon because in many
cases involving violent death, there were no autopsies.
How dare they blame their
misdeeds on enlisted personnel from a Reserve unit in upstate New York.
President Bush owes more than one apology. On the list of those he let down are the young soldiers who
are themselves apparently culpable, but who were clearly put into a moral cesspool. The perpetrators as
well as the victims were both placed in their relationship to one another by the policies of George W. Bush.
How dare the incompetent and
willful members of this Bush/Cheney Administration humiliate our nation
and our people in the eyes of the world and in the conscience of our own people. How dare they subject us
to such dishonor and disgrace. How dare they drag the good name of the United States of America through
the mud of Saddam Hussein's torture prison.
Sadly, the news that Fahrenheit 9/11 will
be released on BitTorrent is not true.
I know you know by now that the article
is satire, if bad satire...
The Bit Torrent/Michael Moore thing is not
true (I found out following your link)
Sorry, but the bittorrent story was a joke.
BitTorrent is NOT going to release Michael
Moore's F9/11 film, that was a spoof story.
I went to the link, and there's a big disclaimer
saying: this is a hoax.
Unfortunatly "Denounce.com" is a humor/parody
site, kinda like The Onion, but I don't find it funny.

has the news of "Fahrenheit 9/11" for a free download.

off the page regarding Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 911".
Come on bartcop! What is going on over there?
You seem to be continuously posting hoax articles that you
have fallen into believing are real. I love your site and the information you provide under the guise of entertainment,
but maybe its about time for a disclamer saying that your site can be very innacurate. So either start actually
researching what you are posting or let the people know you are turning into rush.
Nitro, you should've read and retained what I wrote, which was:

What part of "I've never been to that
page" do you need explained?
You think I should know what a web page says that I've never read?
It says something that BitTorrent.com introduced themselves with a big, fat lie,
but then again, liars often get millions of hits and make the big bucks.
You might see something you can't live without.
"Naturally the common people don't want war,
but after all, it is the leaders of a country that
determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is a
democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice,
the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is
tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of Patriotism and exposing
the country to danger. It works the same in every country."

Michael Moore interviewed Nick Berg for his latest film and has offered to show
the footage to Berg's family before he would release it, a family spokesman said on Friday.

The Berg interview was not used in the film.

How the NY Whore Times helped Bush get his bloody war
When the full history of the Iraq war is written, one of its most scandalous chapters will be about
how American journalists, in particular those at the New York Times, so easily allowed themselves
to be manipulated by both dubious sources and untrustworthy White House officials into running
stories that misled the nation about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction. The Times
finally acknowledged its grave errors in an extraordinary and lengthy editors note published Wednesday.

Subject: Bush sex scandal
I caught the last bit of a conversation
between Imus and Andrea Mitchell this morning - Imus was
complaining that none of the news stations were reporting on a story being written about in the blogs

Bush can't learn from the past if he can't see it
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.
The description is almost biblical. The
narrative - "this war on terror" - is a moral test arranged by higher powers.
Postwar Iraq, like 9/11, Madrid, and Bali, is "the world as we find it," not as we made it. "History," not Bush,
has placed the demands of occupation on our country. "Events," not Bush's mistakes and their consequences,
have come quickly. We must focus on the "duty" defined by our situation, not on how we got here.

The Catholic Church just can't seem to stop
showing the rot at the core. With the pope giving Bernard Law
a nice new home in Rome, I guess all that nasty stuff about pedophile priests really doesn't mean a damn thing
to the Vatican. Why Catholics aren't leaving in droves confounds me. Law overlooked the pedophiles,
reassigned molesters, and did everything he could to sweep this under the rug. Instead of jail time, now he can
finish out his years with the pope. Am I the only one who thinks this is insane?
Keep swinging that hammer, Bart.
Kevin, it's my guess people have a hard time walking away from
even one they know is corrupt. Maybe it's related to battered spouse syndrome.

"The neo-cons are the heirs of rollback. They
ditched the strategy (containment) against a
nuclear-armed superpower to launch a pre-emptive war against a toothless Iraq, which has
been contained and deterred - and disarmed - since the Gulf War. They identified the wrong
enemy (a state), attacked it for the wrong reasons (WMD), and in a way that strengthened
our real enemy, the transnational terrorists of September 11. America has made mistakes in
foreign policy, but nothing compares to this. In the larger context of the Cold War, Vietnam
made a kind of sense. In the context of the struggle against Islamist terrorism, Iraq is an act
of self-sabotage. Of the neo-cons and their neo-con war Auden might have written: 'Intellectual
disgrace stares from every human face.'"

he has "editorialized" about the wrongfulness of a citizen being held in detention as an enemy

"Iraq is completely falling apart. The
occupation of Iraq now lacks any shred of credibility it ever had,
with increasing violence and assassinations in the run up to the fraudulent June 30 "transfer of sovereignty."
...The idea that George W. Bush can give a series of speeches and put this turkey back in flight only reveals
the vast distance between his administration and the reality of the world we live in at this point. News flash
to Dubyah, Rove and their mind control apparatus spinning out of control: two and two does not equal three,

money and a smart energy policy don't mix

"At the same time car owners are having to consider taking out a second mortgage
in order to fill up their tanks, oil companies are raking in record profits.
ConocoPhillips recently reported its largest
first quarter profits ever. And Exxon Mobil
just posted its highest first quarter refining earnings in 13 years.
Coincidentally, these companies and their
oil and gas industry brethren have a highly
profitable habit of greasing the receptive palms of their friend George Bush -- doling out
over $3.5 million to his 2000 and 2004 presidential runs.
So for American consumers, payback is a
bitch. And over two bucks a gallon at the gas pump."
The oil companies are getting super-rich while blaming "unnecessary
environmental regulations" is the reason gas prices are so high, and the Democrats
remain silent and the press pretends that those reasons are valid.

That George Bush made a speech to his country the other night and did not utter a word
about the prison torture in Baghdad was an omission of the greatest magnitude. Bush and
the people who tell him what to say, somebody named Karl Rove is the main influence,
didn't have the slightest conception of what the 30 murders are. They think it's something

The Hill's Sex Diarist Reveals All (Well, Some)
Sen. Mike DeWine (R-Ohio) on Friday fired a young staffer for "unacceptable use of Senate computers" after
she posted her sex diaries on the Internet and raised a hubbub of speculation last week: Who is this wicked woman
that calls herself "Washingtonienne"? Was she really bedding six different men or making it all up? And who is the
married, high-level federal employee she claims paid her $400 for a lunch-hour tryst?
One diary entry described a "married man
who pays me for sex" as "chief of staff at one of the gov agencies,
appointed by Bush." That man, she claimed, paid her $400 on Tuesday for sex, but she declined to provide
his name to The Post, saying, "I'm not trying to ruin his life." (On her blog she identified all the men by initials.)

"It has always been easy to make fun of Al Gore. But if there's any truth to the thunderous criticism
he's turned loose on the Bush administration this week, it's time to dispense with the jokes and listen
seriously to what the man is saying. If Mr. Gore is right, the nation is faced with a crisis of leadership
that is perilously close to an emergency...
In a widely covered speech earlier in the
day, Mr. Gore said that Iraq had not become, as Bush has
asserted, " `the central front in the war on terror.' " But he said it has become, unfortunately, "the
central recruiting office for terrorists."
The speech was extraordinary - blunt, colorful
and delivered with the kind of passion you seldom
see in politics anymore. The former vice president described Mr. Bush as incompetent and untrustworthy,
and said his policies had endangered the nation."

Why America's whore press was so hot for Bush's bloody war
The New York Whore Times's Judith Miller has been the subject of harsh criticism. Slate, The Nation,
Editor & Publisher, the American Journalism Review, and the Columbia Journalism Review have
all run articles accusing her of being too eager to accept official claims before the war and too eager to report
the discovery of banned weapons after it. Especially controversial has been Miller's alleged reliance on
Chalabi and the defectors who were in touch with him. Last May, Howard Kurtz of The Washington Whore Post
wrote of an e-mail exchange between Miller and John Burns, then the Times bureau chief in Baghdad, in which
Burns rebuked Miller for writing an article about Chalabi without informing him. Miller replied that she had been
covering Chalabi for about ten years and had "done most of the stories about him for our paper." Chalabi, she
added, "has provided most of the front page exclusives on WMD to our paper."
The New York Whore Times keeps
pretending this was some kind of accident or mistake.
Why can't people see the facts in front of their faces?
NYW Times created the Whitewater "scandal" - and that hoax lasted for six
The NYW Times created the Wen Ho Lee "scandal" - and that turned out to be a fake.
The NYW Times created or pushed all those Gore lies and praised Bush non-stop in 2000.
The NYW Times echoes that Clinton/crack baby nonsense on their front page aboive the fold.
The NYW Times helped Bush create his fake war - and people say it's a "liberal" newspaper.
