Breaking News - Bartcop Exclusive!
Added by Marc Perkel
You might have seen this story in the news lately about the San
Francisco man who put up a fake video of a beheading
(of himself being beheaded) and the Associated Press took it as real. Since then
the respectable press has been trying to
cover their asses and distort the truth to make it look like this guy
is to blame for the deception rather than their own stupidity.
To that end the newsmedia who has called Ben Vanderford and interviewed
him have been changing his story to suit their spin
on the issue. But unlike them - I (Marc Perkel - Computer
Tyme Hosting) am a real journalist and I have provided them
web space to tell
their side of the story unedited. That way the real story can come out.
As of this moment the FBI is trying hard to find something they can
charge these kids with to save the press the embarrasment
of having screwed up the original story. You see - if they can persecute
them - then that take attention off their own coverups,
their stupidity, and that the media is just a puppet of the Bush administration.
At least - this is my spin about what is going on with this story.
As of right now - this is the only link on the internet to their side
of the story and as an advocate of free speech I have decided
to give them a voice. I got a call early this morning after they got booted
off of their previous host and I decided to give them a voice.
They have given me the go ahead so it is now up there. And it will remain
the official unedited voice of what it is they have to say.
One of the reasons I am doing this is because I have myself been a critic
of the original Nick Berg Video which was heavily
edited and raised more questions than it resolved. In the Nick Berg video
the man who is killing Berg - al-Zarqawi - has two legs
where the real al-Zarqawi only has one. The video appears to have been
filmed at Abu Ghraib Prison and Berg - who was in
American custody is still wearing an American orange uniform. Aparently
others had suspected fakery and were curious enough
to experiment on how to fake a beheading. These kids produced a video
- obviously not intended to actually deceive anyone
- because it was the beheading of the producer of the film who was never
a captive - and who's name and address appear in the film.
Had Associated Press done ANY research at all they would have know it
was fake. Here's a link to the Original

Investigated For Iran Deals
This is Chop #400 on this corrupt, old tree
- will it ever fall?
A Treasury Department investigation into the
activities of Halliburton in Iran is looking at potentially suspicious
business contacts between Iran's oil company
and Halliburton at the time it was headed by Dick Cheney.
According to documents dating from 1997 and 1998,
a Dubai-based Halliburton subsidiary received at least a
dozen tender offers from Kala Ltd, the wholly
owned British subsidiary of the National Iranian Oil Company.
Investigators are trying to figure out if those
deals were concluded and if they violated U.S. sanctions against Tehran,
congressional sources said. "This would be the
first evidence that Halliburton was actively seeking business in Iran
under Cheney in possible violation of U.S. laws," said
Dan Katz, the chief counsel for Senator Frank Lautenberg of
New Jersey, who obtained the documents as part
of an effort to tighten U.S. sanctions against states sponsoring
terrorism and then handed them over to the Treasury.
"Although we don't know if those deals are legal or
not, the intensive contacts raise questions and OFAC
[the Treasury Department office of foreign assets
control] is looking into this closely," Katz said. Halliburton
acknowledged in a filing to the Securities and
Exchange Commission in February that OFAC recently had
requested new information about the activities
in Iran of one of its unit, Halliburton Services and Products,
which is incorporated in the Cayman Islands and
based in Dubai.
People have been talking for years and years about Cheney's illegal
oil deals with Iraq and Iran.
Begala and Carville rarely go an entire show without mentioning something
like this, and after all
these years, someone finally decides to actually look into the
BFEE's continuous global crime spree?
"I have one thing to say to those who think Alan
Keyes' candidacy is a good thing:
In the words of Malcolm X, you are being "hoodwinked,

The reality is, GOP state central committee

to split the black vote, and to stop Republicans
from crossing the line to vote for Obama.
As the old folks would say, in this race,
Keyes would be merely carrying white folks' water."

Prozac Found in Britain's Drinking Water
No wonder Blair was so eager to help Bush murder Ieaq
Traces of the Prozac have been found in Britain's

alarm bells with environmentalists concerned
about potentially toxic effects.
The Observer newspaper said Sunday that a report
by the government's environment
watchdog found Prozac was building up in river
systems and groundwater used for drinking supplies.
Prescription of anti-depressants has surged in
Britain. In the decade up to 2001,

Subject: Kerry train blew
us by at 1 a.m., Edwards flies right back!
A revealing incident in my little town.
The Kerry train left Kansas City and headed
west, no plan to stop in the red state of Kansas.
40 miles west, we heard a crowd was gathering
here in Lawrence, and the train might stop, around 11:30 p.m.
We went down to the station, and the crowd
grew to about 2,000. Police came and told us the Kerry train
now wouldn't be here till almost 1 a.m. Most
An hour later, half the crowd was back, a
thousand people at a small town train station, lining the platform,
sitting on locomotives, and overflowing into
the other side of the tracks. And finally the train came through,
the majestic blue engine, flag waving...
the old historic train cars... they all zoomed right on past the station
and into the darkness of the Kansas plains. Kerry
ran out and waved from the back of the train for about
two visible camera flashes, a tiny distant
figure in the blackness, and it was over. Everybody shrugged and
Until the people on the train figured out
what happened. They simply didn't know we were going to be there.
No plan had been made for a stop, and a bunch
of very tired people had settled in for a long ride when they
suddenly heard a cheering mob blurring by,
and then darkness again.
So you know what?
The Edwards family came right back from Colorado,
to meet with the folks in Lawrence, even though our vote will not count.
They reserved a park, and when it rained,
they found a place inside.

Seeks Dental Help Using Sign Language
More articulate than the never-elected Governor
When Koko the gorilla used the American Sign
Language gesture for pain and pointed
to her mouth, 12 specialists, including three
dentists, sprang into action.
The result? Her first full medical examination
in about 20 years, an extracted tooth
and a clean bill of health.
About a month ago, Koko, a 300-plus-pound
ape who became famous for mastering more
than 1,000 signs, began telling her handlers
at the Gorilla Foundation in Woodside she was in pain.
They quickly constructed a pain chart, offering
Koko a scale from one to 10.
When Koko started pointing to nine or 10 too
often, a dental appointment was made. And because
anesthesia would be involved, her handlers used
the opportunity to give Koko a head-to-toe exam.

Slater said. "She'll tell us how bad she's feeling, how bad

April 14th of 2004, when it was clear that Kerry was going

said something I agree with
Bush said "Our enemies never stop thinking
about new ways
to harm our country and our people, and
neither do we."
Bush is more right than he thinks. Apparently
his idea of winning the "war on terror" is to do
more damage to this country than the terrorists
are doing - and in that frame of reference he is
definitely winning. Clearly no terrorist
could have done the kind of damage to America that Bush
has done in the four years since he stole
the election. Sometimes I think the reason that the terrorists
haven't attacked again is because they can
just sit back and watch Bush destroy America.
If I were a terrorist - I wouldn't want to
do anything that would interfere with Bush's reelection.

Good point, which leads to another good point.
Pretty much everyone agrees that in the event of another massive, dealy

invade an innocent Arab country?
Without a doubt, Bush is Al Qaeda's top recruiter.
