Quote of the Day
"Kitty Kelley's allegations make Michael Moore
It pays to advertise!
"We are not going to stand by and allow another
million African American votes to go uncounted
in this election. We are not going to stand by and allow acts of voter suppression, and we're hearing
those things again in this election. What they did in Florida in 2000, some say they may be planning
to do this year in battleground states all across this country. Well, we are here to let them know that
we will fight tooth and nail to make sure that this time, every vote is counted and every vote counts."
--John Kerry, to the Congressional Black Caucus, Attribution
John, I have a question:
When you say, "We are here to let them know...," is that similar to taking action?
Are you "serving notice" that they'd better not cheat this time?
Or are you taking physical action to prevent them from cheating again?
Mushroom Cloud Reported in N. Korea
Did they conduct a nuclear-related test? Or was is a non-nuke?
The explosion was Thursday in Yanggang province near the border with China.
The blast left a crater big enough to be noticed by a satellite, the source said.
"We understand that a mushroom-shaped cloud about
2.2 miles to 2.5 miles in diameter was
monitored during the explosion," the source said. Yonhap described the source as "reliable."
Thursday was the anniversary of the 1948
foundation of the communist regime.
Kim Jong Il uses the occasion to bolster loyalty among the impoverished North Koreans.
North Korea was contained.
The Nazi right likes to say "Clinton
appeased them," and in some ways that
could be true,
but Clinton gave them a reason to play ball - Bush threatened them into arming themselves.
North Korea was contained, just like Saddam
But the BFEE Industrial Complex can't earn with America at peace and them of power.
The day North Korea issues their blackmail
demands - or they'll launch their missiles and destroy the
biggest cities on our west coast - will the American media declare that catastrophic day another example
of the great leadership of George W. Bush, our greatest war hero ever?
But what's really important...
When that nutty bastard blows up the world
preparing for the Second Superstitious Coming,
will there still be time to blame it all on Bill Clinton before the nuke-u-lar blast kills us all?

U.S. Targets Zarqawi Loyalists in Strike on Falluja
U.S. forces launched air strikes on the rebel-held city of Falluja Monday, targeting what they said
was a meeting of key loyalists of their top foe in Iraq, Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
The Falluja attacks followed one of the most violent days in Iraq in recent months in which at least
110 people were killed in Baghdad and other Iraqi towns.
Sixty years ago, we took on Germany and
Japan at the same time with 1/10th of the power
we have now, but somehow Falluja is too tough a nut for us to crack?

"God no longer trusts George Bush to be His

God Breath to blow Hurricane Frances north and out to sea. But God did not. He merely allowed
Frances to creep further and further towards Florida, forcing the evacuation of millions of voters in
a swing state before they could listen to Bush speak. (Allowing Frances to move along on its straight
path is also God's smack at Jeb Bush, who said of Hurricane Charley, "God doesn't follow the linear
projections of computer models . . . This is God's way of telling us that he's almighty and we're mortal."
Yeah, God wants to show just how almighty he can be.)"

Subject: Swift boat veterans
Let me get this straight--The official U.S.
Military documents that awarded Senator Kerry three
Purple Hearts, a Bronze Star and a Silver Star do not mean that Senator Kerry earned those medals,
but because President Bush has an Honorable Discharge Certificate--another official U.S. Military
document--then we have to conclude that the President fulfilled his Military Requirement?
By criticizing Senator Kerry's Medals, the
Republicans are disparaging the medals earned and worn
by every Soldier, Sailor, Airman and Marine who has ever served.
Keep up the good work and as a soldier, I thank you for your support.

Subject: Bush is an accidental success?
Are not the alleged goals of Al Quaeda the
same as Bush? Bush could never have been the most
successful president in American History, at accomplishing his real goals and obtaining a high approval rating,
if he had not been so lucky that he was so incompetent that Al Queda was able to accidently succeed in
carrying out the 9/11 attacks, that should have been prevented by the Bush administration, if the Bush
administration had not been so suprised and incompetent that the attacks were allowed to take place
succesfully, which happened to turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to the Bush administration,
even though the Bush administration tried to prevent any investigation into the terrible attacks, that they could
never have expected, that turned out to be so great for them and allowed them to carry out succesfully all of
their goals. STOP THINKING IN THIS RIDICULOUS CIRCLE!!!
Who wrote the Patriot Act and when was this
massive legal document which is several hundred pages long,
and was passed only five weeks after 9/11 happened, written?? If it was written before 9/11 how could it be
in response to 9/11, if no one in the Bush adminstration had any clue 9/11 would take place????
The 9/11 attacks are the cornerstone of
the Bush administration!!! It is the nail they hang their hat on!!!!
Without the 9/11 attacks they could never had a war in Iraq and they wouldn't have a chance in this election.
Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld are evil monsters and mass murderers of their own people!!!!
9/11 was an inside, secret, highly technical,
military job!!!!! Visit www.911inplanesite.com
WE MUST EXPOSE THIS BEFORE THE ELECTION!!!
Also, Bush is not a Christian (I AM)!!
He is a supporter of the MOONIES and the Moonies support him
just like they did his father, the elected Bush who boldly told us all the lie about the Iraqis throwing babies
out of incubators, which was made up by his supporters advertising company, in order to take us to war!!!
This also must be exposed!
Evangelical and mainstream Christians WILL
NOT vote for Bush is they knew about the Moonie connection!
MOON called Jesus a failure and claims to be the true profit of God!
Millions of Christian voters will switch to Kerry if they find out about Moon!
This also MUST be exposed!
I will keep pushing on these issues!
9/11 and the MOONIES will defeat Bush!
"This Iraqi insurgency is going on, it's growing,
it certainly has no indications of being an act of
desperation at all. And the 1,000-casualty mark, you know, it's a milestone. It has a psychological
effect, and obviously is going to have some partisan political interest. But of itself, you know, it's
somewhat irrelevant. You know, you don't want to see anybody on our side killed to begin with.
But, you know, compared to previous wars, compared to Vietnam, Korea and certainly World War II,
the casualties -- as horrendous and hideous as they are -- are, relatively speaking, low. But you now,
it still, the figure 1,000, that's shocking."

...yet Bush is running on his
"great success" in Iraq.
You'd think a guy like John Kerry could capitalize on that lie.
by Maureen Dowd
But this summer, when that lust for power should have been coursing through his veins, Mr. Kerry
grew timid and logy. He let the Bush crowd and Swift boat character assassins stomp all over him and,
for the longest time, didn't fight back. He stumbled into every trap Bush Inc. set.
Finally, the only Democrat who has fended
off the WASP Corleones reminded the nominee of the
prep-school mantra: punch the bully in the face, and do it in the same news cycle.
"Howard Dean had the base all warmed up and now
Kerry's turned into a girlie-man," said one Democratic,
comparing it with the scene in "The Godfather" when the singer Johnny Fontane shows up at the wedding
of Don Corleone's daughter and whines that a studio chief is being mean to him.
The godfather slaps the singer and barks, "Act like a man!"

"If you look at, for example, the number of
attacks per day, last October it was around 20.
At the hand-off, it was 35. This month it was 87 -- numbers of attacks on the oil pipeline
-- January and February, less than five; June, 16; August, 20; September, high already.
The numbers aren't good. The numbers show that the insurgency is getting worse.
We seem to have turned the corner, and it's getting worse."

Rumsfeld Helped N Korea Obtain Nukes
The Swiss-based ABB on Friday told swissinfo that Rumsfeld was involved with the company
in early 2000, when it netted a $200 million (SFr270million) contract with Pyongyang.
The ABB contract was to deliver equipment and services for two nuclear power stations at Kumho, on North Korea's east coast.
Rumsfeld - who is one of the Bush administration's
most strident "hardliners" on North Korea - was a
member of ABB's board between 1990 and February 2001, when he left to take up his current post.
Wolfram Eberhardt, a spokesman for ABB, told swissinfo that Rumsfeld "was at nearly all the board meetings"
during his decade-long involvement with the company. However, he declined to indicate whether Rumsfeld
was made aware of the nuclear contract with North Korea.
I gues Rumsfeld didn't know about Saddam's WMDs, either?

"A moral coward is someone who lacks the courage
to tell the truth, to accept responsibility,
to demand accountability, to do what's right when it's not the easy thing to do, to clean up his
or her own messes. Perhaps we could say that moral bravery is having both the courage of your
convictions as well as the courage of your misdeeds. On the balance sheet of moral bravery - as
opposed to physical bravery - John Kerry and George W. Bush were about as far apart as you
could be on Vietnam. On the one hand, you have Kerry, who already had doubts about whether
we should be fighting in Vietnam before he went but put his life on the line anyway. On the other
hand, you have Bush, who supported the war, which means he believed the goal was worth the
cost in American lives. Only, not his life. He believed others should go, just not him. That is
almost the definition of moral cowardice."

Subject: Will America collapse economically?
The numbers are out and at 422 billion dollars
Bush has set a new record for deficit spending.
But what is even scarier is the projections that in a decade that the annual deficit will be 2.2 trillion dollars a year.
I don't believe that we will actually reach
a 2.2 trillion dollar deficit (2200 billion dollars) because,
like the World Trade Towers, the economy will totally collapse before then. If we are heading
towards economic collapse - maybe it's time to change the direction of the country - elect a new
leader - and put back in place the economy we had just 4 years ago when we had a surplus.
It's time to get rid of Bush - tax the rich - and bring back peace and prosperity.

Subject: No plane hit the Pentagon...
Bart, you published:
> "When Rumsfeld was told on the morning of Sept. 11 that a second plane
had hit the WTC,
> he paused, then continued his morning intelligence briefing, according to the 9/11 Commission."
What plane hit the pentagon?
I've seen no evidence as such.
Even Rumsfeld, who said he was there at
the Pentagon "when the missile hit,... I mean the plane"
knew no plane hit the Pentagon...
A planned coup?
It would of taken years in the making.
I would say...the obvious speaks for itself.
No one in some cave ten thousand miles away
and highjackers with 'box cutters'
pulled this off because they "hate our freedom". Give me a f-ing break.
Al, *I* have no evidence a plane hit the Pentagon.
All we know for sure is Bush doesn't want the truth to come out.
That's why he fought the 9-11 Commission, that's why he cut it's funding, cut it's time, restricted who
could testify and for how long, then grudgingly agreed to testify himself ONLY if he wasn't under oath
and had Cheney there to help him fill in the blanks (which are legion), and that's why he appointed
"Whitewash Lee Hamilton" and a partisan Republican to chair a panel to handjob us to death.
The more they lie to us, the more conspiracy theories will fester.

Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary results were highly suspicious
(remember in Feburary thinking: John Kerry???) If this story about the demos purposely passing on the 2004
election so as to position Hillary Clinton for 2008 is true, I just want McAuliffe & company to know I have no
intention of voting for Hillary, and they can forget any future support from me for their having let down all of us
who are so desperate to end this Bush madness.
Bill, Hillary may be our last hope.
Just think - how can they slime her?

Rhodes and AAR make a strong debut
"Laughingstock" turns into "the network that did"
Air America got its first "book" -- the three-month Arbitron ratings -- in late July and exulted. In New York,
its flagship WLIB generally trailed the leading talk station WABC in the 25-54 demographic but beat out rival WOR.
Rhodes's afternoon show outdrew conservative stalwarts Bill O'Reilly, Bob Grant and Michael Savage, though not
WABC's Sean Hannity. It was a strong debut.
Moreover, Air America got even higher numbers
among 18-to-34-year-olds. "Amazing stat," marvels Randi Rhodes,
who did top Hannity in that group. "Nobody on AM gets 18-to-34-year-olds."
"Most stations would kill for this kind of launch," said Media Audit executive Mike Bustell.

Time to Cream Him, John
a Buzzflash Editorial
We wrote in an editorial in the spring of this year that Kerry needed to define George W. Bush or be defined.
Apparently, they weren't listening to us over at Kerry headquarters. They were shelling out hundreds of thousands
of dollars to Democratic consultants who make their careers off of losing campaigns by urging a "middle of the road"
course. Meanwhile, the Swift Boat Liars slithered out of the sewer system and through the back door.
We have hesitated to write this editorial
because John F. Kerry is truly a decent and honorable man. He is a true
He has recently taken some strong shots at Bush, which the mainstream press tends to bury in their coverage.
Edwards has also been partially unleashed.
But that is not enough. Kerry and Edwards
are fighting for democracy against the same people who tried to frame a
President of the United States, through a medieval witch hunt, by hijacking the sacred process of our "justice" system.
Through the intervention of Cheney's longtime friend, Antonin Scalia, they stole an election from the American people.
They lie, cheat and steal.
If they lose this election, and Kerry has
backbone, the Bush/Cheney Barbary Pirates will leave the White House
and within a year or two end up in the big house up the river: the Federal Penitentiary.
Michael Isikoff makes stuff up - who knew?
Newsweek's superficial and hyper-sanctimonious conclusions are all the more irritating when I remember
how much time I spent talking to Isikoff about my views on the downside of our contemporary political practices.
I mentioned my book on the subject, "The Politics of Deceit: Saving Freedom and Democracy from Extinction,"
so many times that it became a running joke in our conversations.
I fail to understand why the magazine believes
the suburban mom who donated $25 to help shed light on Bush's
deceptions and distortions with regard to his irresponsible war record is some kind of political bandit when the
wealthy Republicans who helped Bush raise - what is it now, $100 million? - go unmentioned.
I guess it is more acceptable and proper
to have already hijacked an election than to try in some small way
to have an impact on an upcoming one.
"Did Ben Barnes use his influence to get Bush
into the Guard? Did Bush refuse a direct order
from his commanding officer? Was he suspended for failing to perform? Did he take his physical

definitive evidence to the contrary of our story is found, we will report it. So far, there is none."

Subject: Michael Savage
I was watching C-Span last week and one
of the authors on Book TV said that Michael Savage,
back when he was still answering to the name Michael Wiener, sent love letters to beat poet Alan Ginsburg.
That's right, the biggest gay-basher among the neocon blowhards apparently has some very strong gay tendencies himself.
He also mentioned that Savage, in one of
his books, went on and on about how horrible the Weimar Republic was.
That's was the brief interlude of German free democracy in the 1920s between the Kaiser and Adolf Hitler.
Finally, he pointed out that Mike's new book is called 'The Enemy Within.' It was downright comical.

Playing to the media in attacks on service
As most people know because they are conventionally wise, John Kerry is about to lose the presidency
because he is a commie-helping traitor who invented his Vietnam service and finally got caught 30-plus years later.
For those dupes who still support him, there is consolation in another bit of conventional wisdom --- that this is
entirely his fault because when Bush supporters tried to destroy his service record he was unconscionably slow
to respond. By contrast, it is also accepted that because President Bush is such a strong leader it is of no political
consequence that the liberal media and partisan opponents present evidence that Bush benefited from big shot
connections to escape Vietnam via the National Guard, where he then proceeded to benefit from big shot
connections in order to shirk his duty and get away with it."

One man's resistance: 'Why I turned against America'
"'It gave me a glimpse of a better life. When I heard that the Americans were coming to liberate Iraq
I was very happy. I felt that I would be able to live well, travel and have freedom. I wanted to do more
sport, get new appliances and a new car and develop my life. I thought the US would come here and
our lives would be changed through 180 degrees.'
He spoke of how his faith in the US was
shaken when, via a friend's illicitly imported satellite TV system,
he saw 'barbaric, savage' pictures of civilian casualties of the fighting and bombing. The next blow came in
the conflict's immediate aftermath, as looters ran unchecked through Baghdad.
'When I saw the American soldiers watching
and doing nothing as people took everything, I began to
suspect the US was not here to help us but to destroy us,' he said."
How could Iraq have turned out any worse?
Can anybody think of a scenario darker than the one Bush has created?

The Scare Vote
"In the days leading up to the 9/11 anniversary, the vice president finally raised the alert -- color it crimson
-- that a vote for Kerry was a vote for terrorism. If voters make "the wrong choice," he said, "then the danger
is that we'll get hit again, and we'll be hit in a way that will be devastating."
At least Cheney didn't call Kerry himself
a terrorist, a label he once applied to Nelson Mandela. But this was
no slip of the tongue. It was a rhetorical baby step from the language of the Republican convention that
aggressively put the war on terror at the center of the campaign and Bush at the helm.
Remember Arnold? "Ladies and Gentlemen,
if you believe we must be fierce and relentless and terminate
terrorism, then you are a Republican!" Apparently if you are a Democrat, you want to encourage terrorism."
How can Kerry be losing this race?
Bush's Iraq bungle is one of the biggest screw-ups in presidential history, and he's running on how great things are?
The record surpluses are now record deficits, and he's running on how great things are?
A thousand dead and perhaps tens of thousands missing arms and legs, and he's running on how great things are?
The America of peace and prosperity is now America the bloody bully that the whole world hates?
