 AP: Final 9/11 Report Slams All But Bush
  As expected, Whitewash Hamilton protects Illegal Monkey

  Click  Here

 Hoping to avoid partisan attacks, the Sept. 11 commission has drafted a final report
 that avoids placing blame on any individual, but sharply criticizes nameless FBI and CIA
 members for missteps prior to the catastrophe - therefore nobody was responsible.

 Were you expecting the people in charge to be held accountable?
 Were you expecting the Vacation Kid to get a failing grade for going AWOL on the job?
 Were you expecting Mr. Never-worked-a-day-in-his-life to be held accountable?

"Virtually every significant problem facing the American people today can be traced back to
  the policies and people that came from the Reagan administration.  It is a laundry list of ills,
  woes and disasters that has all of us, once again, staring apocalypse in the eye."

 Recalling the 'October Surprise'

  Click  Here

 The allegations are not vague. They allege that representatives of the Reagan presidential campaign
 made a deal at two sets of meetings in July and August at the Ritz Hotel in Madrid with Iranians to
 delay the release of Americans held hostage in Iran until after the November 1980 presidential elections,
 so that Reagan's opponent, then President Jimmy Carter, whose team had been negotiating, wouldn't
 gain a popularity boost (an 'October Surprise') before election day. The allegations included a date-specific
 allegation that William Casey met with an Iranian cleric in Madrid, Spain, and much of the tardy investigations
 centered on whether, at the weekend in question he was actually at Bohemian Grove retreat in California.
 Though William Casey was provably in London following the alleged meetings, critical pages of his daybook
 diary were unaccountably missing when the investigators came to look for them over a decade later.

 Good thing Rep Lee Hamilton (Traitor-Whitewash) was able to bury these crimes.

 Bush's kiss of death
    by Molly Ivins

  Click  Here

 Just before Memorial Day, Veterans Affairs Secretary Anthony Principi said, "Our active military respond
 better to Republicans" because of "the tremendous support that President Bush has provided for our military
 and our veterans." The same day, the White House announced plans for massive cuts in veterans' health care for 2006.

 Last January, Bush praised veterans during a visit to Walter Reed Army Medical Center. The same day,
 164,000 veterans were told the White House was "immediately cutting off their access to the VA health care system."

 My favorite in this category was the short-lived plan to charge soldiers wounded in Iraq for their meals when
 they got to American military hospitals. The plan mercifully died a-borning after it hit the newspapers.

 No matter how deeply Bush slashes veteran benefits, they love him and hate Clinton even more.

 Memo on Torture Draws Focus to Bush
  Aide Says Bush Set Guidelines for Interrogations, Not Specific Techniques

  Click  Here

 The disclosure that the Justice Department advised the White House in 2002 that the torture of
 al Qaeda terrorist suspects might be legally defensible has focused new attention on the role Bush
 played in setting the rules for interrogations in the war on terrorism.

 An Aug. 1, 2002, memo from the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel, addressed to Gonzales,
 said that torturing suspected al Qaeda members abroad "may be justified" and that international laws against
 torture "may be unconstitutional if applied to interrogation" conducted against suspected terrorists.

 The document provided legal guidance for the CIA, which crafted new, more aggressive techniques for
 its operatives in the field. McClellan called the memo a historic or scholarly review of laws and conventions
 concerning torture. "The memo was not prepared to provide advice on specific methods or techniques,"
 he said. "It was analytical." .

 So, Bush orders the torture like Tony Soprano orders a mob hit.
 Tony would never said, "Silvio, I want you to murder Adrianne."
 No, he would say, "Our friend has become a problem that needs to be solved."

 Same way, Bush could say, "I want any and all information from those suspects.
 Do you hear what I'm saying? I want that goddamn information and soon."

 That way, Bush clearly orders the torturing but if they ever hold hearings on that,
 (No doubt chaired by a loyal Republican, Lee Hamilton and a random Clinton-hater)
 everyone can testify Bush never ordered any such thing even tho he did.

 Help me understand what is going on at CNN.
 They are fawning over Ronald.
 It's become the all Reagan all the time network.

 Phil, you forgot - CNN is an American news outlet - meaning they are whores.

 They're not here to deliver the news, or be accurate, or be a watchdog for the people.
 They exist to make money, and if they can do that by broadcasting weepy, sentimental lies
 about Osama or Reagan or Saddam, that's just what they're going to do.  That's their job.

 A whore does whatever makes the most money - that's CNN.

 Bush Should Fear Nancy Reagan's Ire
    by Joe Conason

  Click  Here

 Now she's the object of tremendous national sympathy and admiration - and the spokeswoman
 for a cause that cuts directly against the President's "faith-based" aversion to scientific progress.
 She believes that embryonic stem-cell research may someday relieve the Alzheimer's disease that
 destroyed Reagan's mind, and in that conviction she possesses the kind of credibility that suffering
 can confer. (She wouldn't be the first conservative to learn deeper compassion from a terrible
 personal ordeal.)

 Her friends predict that in the days to come, she will speak out with increasing frequency and
 determination on behalf of stem-cell research, which the President has hindered with federal
 restrictions and constraints on spending. Surely she remembers how he spurned her private pleas
 three years ago, when he was pondering that decision. She must know that the Bush administration's
 hostility to science goes well beyond the stem-cell issue, with its big, destructive cutbacks in funding
 for disease research.

 Reagan's heart of darkness

  Click  Here

"President Bush proclaimed: "Ronald Reagan believed that God takes the side of justice and that America
 has a special calling to oppose tyranny and defend freedom." In the first three days of news reports on the
 death of the former president, not a single major American newspaper, television station, or politician has
 dared to exhume this counterpoint to the Reagan's legacy: "Immoral, evil, and totally un-Christian."

 These were the words of Bishop Desmond Tutu, spoken on Capitol Hill at a House hearing in late 1984.
 It was just after Reagan's easy reelection. Tutu had just been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his nonviolent
 struggle against apartheid in South Africa. Throughout the United States a rising number of Americans were
 calling for American companies to stop doing business there."

 Reagan ignored them.

 Subject: comparing Bush and Reagan

 I'm somewhat disturbed by the lack of sensitivity of the Republicans comparing Bush and Reagan.
 I was never a Reagan fan - but I don't see the comparison.

 Reagan would never have fabricated a fake war and gotten over 800 American killed.
 Reagan would never have allowed rape, torture, and murder at Abu Griab Prison and then try to cover it up.
 Reagan didn't have the contempt for law and honesty the way Bush does.

 And - Reagan was a whole lot smarter than Bush.
 Why Republicans want to disgrace Reagan in this time of national mourning
 by comparing him to Bush is a mystery to me.

 Subject: Reagan had the last laugh

 The outpouring of love for President Reagan must really piss off leftist jerks such as yourself.

 Compared to Nixon, Ford, Bush the Smarter and the Illegal Monkey,
 it's no surprise that your party would choose to rally around the stubborn, old goat.

 In spite of the media trying to rewrite history, Reagan will be remembered as one our greatest presidents.

 For arming terrorists or the Nicaraguan death squads?

 Even with all the misguided venom you have for conservatives, this is becoming so obvious
 that it will be impossible for you to argue otherwise.

 I never argue with the facts, and one fact is Reagan was the biggest spender in history
 and the federal government grew like crazy when he was claiming to downsize it.

 I see a lot of similarities between Reagan's presidency and that of President George W. Bush

 ha ha
 That's my line, but it turns out Reagan won't be remembered as the stupidest president after all.

 Both confronted evil during their presidency.

 Yes, and both did business with evil.
 Reagan created, armed and trained Osama and Saddam, with Bush's help.

 I also see some similarities between Mondale and Kerry (both said they'll raise taxes).

 Reagan raised taxes seven times - are you saying that's good or bad?
 The Democrats' mistake is being honest about it.

 That should concern you given how the 1984 election turned out.
 I believe Bush will win in a landslide

 That's a dangerous thing to say to a gambler.

 ...and be similarly revered when history has had a chance to judge him.

 You mean like the rest of the world "reveres" him now?

 I can't help making this comparison between Clinton and Reagan.
 Reagan had so much respect for the presidency that he wouldn't take his jacket off in the Oval Office.

 Yesd, he wore that jacket when he committed treason, when he tried to steal from the school lunch
 program and when he promised there were no weapons on those two small planes to Iran.

 Clinton, on the other hand, had so little respect that he couldn't even keep his pants on.

 Yes, Clinton "got some" during his presidency.
 Democrats screw women (but not Monica) and Repubs screw the Constitution and old people.
 Do you think Reagan even remembered what sex was during his presidency?

 The Gipper must be laughing at people like you.

 Subject: Nader and Bush

 I have a question:  Can you prove that Nader gave Bush the presidency?
 If you can prove that, I'll vote for Kerry...

 Keep up the good work.

 Regina, the numbers prove that - it has nothing to do with me.
 I don't have the numbers in front of me, but if you just count Florida, Bush "won"
 by 570 votes, I think, and Nader got thousands of votes.

 I've always said Nader wasn't the only problem.
 Pat Buchanan got 10,000 votes from retired Jews - that cost Gore the state, too.
 Jeb and Cruella Harris wouldn't allow thousands of blacks to vote - that hurt Gore.

 Your choices this time are Bush and Kerry.
 I will be elected president before Nader is, but don't vote for me, either.

 If you want never-ending wars and body bags, vote for someone besides Kerry.
 If you want $3 gas and the hatred of every other country on earth, vote for someone besides Kerry.
 If you want blacker skies and dirtier water, vote for someone besides Kerry.

 Fueled by its casinos, Las Vegas has become the nation's strongest union town and wedding capital;

 The mafia-built town, which still prides itself on its seedy roots, has gone awfully mainstream. The mix of locals
 and visitors in this strange desert mirage is so representative of the nation at large that many consumer products
 are tested there. NBC has discovered that Las Vegas is an ideal place to test its pilot episodes on random audiences.

 Reagan: A Political Enigma
    by Gene Lyons

  Click  Here

 So how did he retain popularity? Three reasons: A TV professional, his onscreen persona
 hypnotized millions. My parents became lukewarm Reagan Democrats. A union member,
 my mother could never believe that a regular fellow like Reagan would do damage to her
 interests. Second, the same tycoon-funded, conservative commentariat that now seeks to
 enshrine this amiable second-rater on Mt. Rushmore was just then emerging into prominence.

 Mostly, however, Reagan stayed popular because he never enacted many of his Big Ideas,
 either in domestic or foreign policy. There was no "Reagan Revolution." He took office
 vowing to slash the bureaucracy. But federal spending actually grew by almost 25 percent
 during his two terms; the federal civilian work force increased from 2.8 to 3 million.
 (It shrunk to 2.68 million under Clinton.)

  Subject: media owned by conservatives?

 Wasn't Time-Warner owned by Ted Turner who is an inveterate leftist?

 Wasn't Reagan a Democrat?
 Turner never owned Time Warner.
 They bought CNN from him and gave him a seat on the board.
 Time Warner exists to make money, not to honestly inform the public.

 No the people who own the media outlets aren't liberals.  They are globalists,
 internationalists and to their credit they aren't working to promote any one country over ours.


 As a matter of fact they are working to promote a one-world government
 with their power-elite at the top over our Constitution.

 You mean the Constitution Bush and Ashcroft shredded?
 Nothing is more global than the BFEE.

 They take entire countries by force, bombing their biggest cities and killing (or torturing) their leaders
 then stealing all their assets under the veil of "self defense" and "God told me to do this."
