Ukraine Vote Tally, Issues Warning
Pot calls kettle black, says elections should be fair over
America's vote riggers rejected the announced
results of Ukraine's disputed presidential election and
warned them to uphold democracy or face consequences
in its relationships with the United States and Europe.
Bush puppet Colin Powell delivered a sharp rebuke
to the Ukrainian authorities who yesterday declared
Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych the winner of
a runoff election Sunday that Ukrainian protesters and
foreign observers said was marred by fraud.
"We cannot accept this result as legitimate because
it does not meet international standards and because
there has not been an investigation of the numerous
and credible reports of fraud and abuse," Powell said
with a straight face as howls of incredulous disbelief
were heard around the globe.
Will history record that Bush "won" two tainted elections?
Or will they say the people elected a strong and wise leader to fix the

Democracy Double Standards
by Robert Parry at consortiumnews.com
The Washington Post and other leading American
newspapers are up in arms about the legitimacy
of a presidential election where exit polls showed
the challenger winning but where the incumbent party
came out on top, amid complaints about heavy-handed
election-day tactics and possibly rigged vote tallies.
In a lead editorial, the Post cited the divergent
exit polls, along with voter claims about ballot irregularities,
as prime reasons for overturning the official results.
For its part, the New York Times cited reports of
"suspiciously, even fantastically, high turnouts
in regions that supported" the government candidate.
The U.S. news media is making clear that the truth
about these electoral anomalies must be told.
Of course, the election in question occurred in
In the United States - where exit polls showed
John Kerry winning on Nov. 2, where Republican tactics
discouraged African-American voting in Democratic
precincts, and where George W. Bush's vote totals
in many counties were eyebrow-raising - the Post,
the Times and other top news outlets mocked anyone
who questioned the results.
Note: consortiumnews.com is
the most important site on the internet - and you can see why.
Subject: ...god bless keith oberman;
hang the tyrants!
Bart, I commented on Wednesday as to why it is
that Kerry seems to have given up the good fight.
Here it is, confirmation of your theory and mine. The
only concern of John Kerry is his own ambition.
We were crazy to hitch our cart to his horse to
begin with. He is the antithesis of what is needed in
this country - opposition to the aggrandizement
of power for its own sake.
On the chairmanship of the party: "Doubts
about Dean's own ambitions appear to be hurting him in the House.
'It's just an obvious conflict of interest,' said
Rep. Al Wynn (WHORE D-Md.)." Meanwhile, Kerry can not only run again,
but thinks he should run the party also. Someone
needs to point out to Kerry how badly he fucked up not only the election,
but also the golden opportunity he flailed at with
respect to shaping the election process next time around.
We could have prevented the next theft of an election. Kerry
could care less as long as he remains a player.
Kerry should be ashamed, yet he continues to tout
himself. What good is he to anyone at this point?.
I am surprised he hasn't been offered a cabinet
position in the present administration.

'War of Ideas' Among Muslims
They don't like it when we killed their
people and torches their cities?
We're losing the war of ideas in the Islamic
world, failing to elucidate its policies to Muslims
wary of our intentions and "self-serving hypocrisy," a
Pentagon advisory panel has found.
"If we really want to see the Muslim world as a whole
and the Arabic-speaking world in particular
move more toward our understanding of 'moderation'
and 'tolerance,' we must reassure Muslims
that this does not mean that they must submit to
the American way," the report stated.

veteran, 53, called to active duty
More than three decades after he was last in
combat, a Vietnam veteran has been called to active duty in Iraq.
Paul Dunlap, 53, will leave for Fort Bliss, Texas,
on Monday after being called up as part of Operation Dragoon.
Dunlap, a first sergeant in the Army National
Guard Company C 28th Signal Battalion, hasn't been in combat
since he was a 19-year-old Marine and served 11
months in Vietnam from 1970 to 1971.
"I'm thinking I'm going to be away for at least a year
from my family and my grandchildren (and) friends," Dunlap said.
"I'm thinking it's been a long time since I've been in
war." Dunlap found out about his call-up at work this month.
He will leave behind his wife, Mary Dunlap, four
children and three grandchildren.
I wonder if Dunlap voted for Bush/for this senseless

Look into what they did to Negativeland and Greg

Yeah, I'm kinda familiar with them and their
music and I'm comfortable with that.
U-2 have dirt under their nails just like Lars
from Metallica does.
I would bet money that that's not true.
The way I read the story, Lars personally had

Dude, don't take
this wrong, but I've been a big U2 fan since Tempe in 1987.
I'm not going to kick them down some steps because
I got an e-mail.
I skimmed those links for proof of their badness,
(A group released a record called "U2" with a lil' U2
sampling on it around the time
U2 released their record, and U2's label quickly
slapped 'em with a C&D order.)
and a quote from The Edge caught my eye.
> What may have happened is that (Island
Record's) was a knee-jerk reaction at a moment
> they were expecting the album to be delivered, and
they were probably, maybe after the event,
> they were way down the road before they really took
a proper look at what it was, but I think they felt...
It's just hard for me to put "greed" and "U2" in the same sentence.

by Gene Lyons November
The Bush/McDuck (tax) plan is a monument to untrammeled
greed, a veritable swimming pool filled
with bullion for trust-fund inheritors like Paris
Hilton and the president himself to bask and wallow in.
Without exception, each of the White House's planned "reforms" would
have the effect of shifting
the federal tax burden away from the rich and toward
the salaried middle class. It favors wealth
over work at every turn.
If Bush gets what he wants from the GOP Congress,
a secondary benefit would be to raise income
taxes in the wealthier "blue" states (most of which
already send more to Washington than they get
back in federal spending) even more than in the "red" states
that supported him. Nifty, huh?

I'm really enjoying your recent CDs though it's
kind of sad to hear pre-election stuff.
I was at a MoveOn.org house party on Sunday and
everyone was in agreement that
Progressives need to develop a vision and then
work on media reform so we can get the message out.
One of the points someone brought up was, What
is our response if there's another terrorist attack?
I couldn't even begin to imagine what our weak,
wimpy Dems would say. Attack Iran? Support the troops?
What is the Progressive response to terrorism? It
does exist and we do have to counter it.
Can you fight a war against terrorism? Not
a conventional one. We have to fight it in the courts,
both nationally and internationally. John
Ashcroft was completely incompetent at this and the current
govt has no plans to work with our allies--therefore
we are not safer than before 9/11.
We have no Foreign policy to speak of and Kerry
had no exit plan for Iraq. I think that this is our biggest
problem at the moment. The illegal occupation
of Iraq will bankrupt us, it is already morally bankrupt.
I am heartsick over every dollar spent killing
and injuring more Iraqis and Americans in this evil money machine for Bush

Rush to DeLay's Aid
by Joe Conason
Not every outrage is enacted on C-SPAN, however,
because the Republican overseers have enough
sense to do their most humiliating business behind
closed doors, without recording votes. For instance,
no cameras or reporters were present last week
when Republicans voted to repeal their own rule requiring
any member of their party indicted for a criminal
offense to relinquish his or her leadership post.
The only likely victim of the discarded rule is
Tom DeLay, who may be the next target of a grand jury
sitting in Austin, Tex., which has already indicted
three of Mr. DeLay's closest political associates for
campaign-finance offenses. Like so many aspects
of life in the Lone Star State, the story behind those
indictments also gives off a whiff of the Gilded
Age. The DeLay flunkies are in trouble for allegedly
laundering millions in corporate cash through political-action
committees that supported Republican
candidates for the Texas legislature. The grand
jury has also issued indicments against several out-of-state
corporations that contributed to the DeLay war
chest, with the obvious intent to trade money for favors from him.
"When the news doesn't fit what certain news organizations
want it to be,
they go conduct a poll and they rig the poll
to get the poll results they want,
and they create a story out of it."

Despite a sad crisis of purpose in the '90s -

of Rock with epic grandeur (rather than the more
commonsensical tactics of nihilistic glee, contingent humor,
or rhythm and sex) have done so with such absolute
self-assurance. Springsteen justifies his ponderousness
with the weight of American tradition. Radiohead
abdicated before the crown had even been offered. And the
closest competitors, Pearl Jam, are too caught
up in Eddie's personal sturm und drang. Alone among these
bands, U2 convinced millions they could fill the
bottomless chasm of meaning to the very brim with nothing
but their own collective hugeness.
Subject: Here's one for
you to make fun of
Since you and your moveon.org buddies and the
idiots at Demo Underground just love
to make fun of our troops and to belittle them

22, of Scio, N.Y.; assigned to 3rd Battalion,
7th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division,
I Marine Expeditionary Force, at Twentynine Palms,
Calif.; died April 22 at Bethesda Naval Hospital,
of injuries sustained April 14 when he used his
body to shield comrades from a grenade explosion in Iraq.

murdering mercenary, a red-state Jesus lover. Have
you and your cronies no shame?
Leffler the "poor damned ignorant black man with
an IQ lower than Bart's"
Leffler, in many ways, you're a typical conservative
in that you feel very, very strongly
about things that you're completely wrong about. Why
does your side do that so often?
I can't tell if this "Bart's a left-winger" tactic
is meant to push me somewhere rhetorically, or what, but saying it
and repeating it just doesn't make it so. I
know you're been reading a long time, so how did you miss that week
we spent on Pat Tillman, the millionaire football
hero who gave it all up and then died in Afghanistan?
By the luck of the draw, I got 8-10 e-mails in
a row where readers questioned his brains and patriotism, and it
took me a whole week to straighten them out because dying
for your country does not make you a chump.
Ted Rall. Call your office!
Besides, I made a deal with Demo Underground and moveon.org that
I won't speak for them
if they don't speak for me - so if you have a bitch with them, take it
Having said all that, as an agnostic I have to question the snap decision
to die to save other people's lives.
If I believed that nuttiness about angels and clouds and seeing Grandma
and my dog Scooter again things might be different.
But as someone who's sure we've only got one life, I hate to see anybody
sacrifice theirs to maybe save some others.
That's another reason why I respect those people - they do what I'm
not willing to do.
