Kurds Sweep to Victory in Iraq
Do they? How would we be able to verify that?
Clergy-backed Shiites and independence-minded
Kurds swept to victory in Iraq s landmark elections,
propelling to power the groups that suffered the
most under Saddam Hussein and forcing Sunni Arabs to
the margins for the first time in modern history, say
the same people who told us Bush won fair and square.
President 100,000 Dead praised Iraqis and said
America and its allies should be proud for this election.
"I congratulate the Iraqi people for defying terrorist
threats," he lied thru a spokesman.
Excuse me, Meester 100,000 Dead,
but is refusing to put your name on the ballot, "defying terrorists?"
Is refusing to campaign out of fear, "defying terrorists?"
"And I congratulate every candidate who stood for
election and those who will take office
once the results are certified."
Meester 100,000 Dead, I have a
better idea: Why not wait until 30 days after they've pulled
their masks off and made their identities public
and then congratulate them for still being alive.
Fall Apart, Lie and Lie Again
by Paul Craig Roberts
Suppose you are the party responsible
for invading a country under totally false pretenses.
Suppose you had totally unrealistic expectations
about the consequences of your gratuitous
aggression. What do you do when, instead
of being greeted with flowers, you find your army
is tied down by insurgents and you have no face-saving
way to get out of the morass? If you
are the moronic Bush administration, you blame
someone else. Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Rice,
Cheney and Bush blame Syria and Iran for the troubles
that they brought upon themselves.
The Iraqi insurgency, say the Five Morons, is the
fault of Syria and Iran."

Bush & the
Rise of 'Managed-Democracy'
by Robert Parry of consortiumnews.com
(It) might be called the ãPutin-izingä of
American politics, where one sideâs dominance of media,
financial resources and the ability to intimidate
opponents is overwhelming ö as now exists in Russia
under President Vladimir Putin. Crucial to Putinâs
political control is how the major Russian news
media fawns over the Russian strongman, a former
In the United States, the conservative/Republican
consolidation of power is not yet complete.
But it appears clear that the traditional checks
and balances, including the national press corps,
are now so weak and compromised that they wonât
present any meaningful resistance.
That means new strategies must be devised and new
institutions must be created if this
one-party-state future is to be averted.
The rapidly expanding conservative news media
already is an extraordinary powerhouse,
extending from TV to newspapers to talk radio to
magazines to the Internet. Nothing of a s
imilar size exists on the left side of the U.S.

All governments lie. That is what they do.
A reporter in the White House Press Briefing Room bears
the burden of being the person whose role it is
to speak truth to power, to write down what happens
after speaking truth to power, and to beat their
editors and publishers about the head and shoulders
to make sure that truth is delivered to the people
We perhaps like to imagine the men and women
in that briefing room - if we take the time to think of
them at all - as people with big ears and sharp
eyes, with too many pens in their pockets, a rolodex
with every important name on the planet sitting
on their desks, a hand well used to holding a glass of
scotch, an unspoken promise to keep sources protected
to the bitter end, and a bedrock sense of
being beholden to nothing and no one beyond the
integrity and mission of their chosen profession.
'Without Fear or Favor,' goes the refrain.
Something like that might have existed at one
time in our history. Certainly, careerism has always
played a part in the reporting of any journalist
in that briefing room. Make the administration
spokesperson angry enough and he or she will pull
your pass, thus humiliating you and derailing
your climb up the ladder. Probably a lot of reporters
have let important stories drop in order to
preserve their access and their careers, but the
really good ones report the stuff anyway, and they
wind up being the ones asked to speak at the commencement
for the Columbia School of Journalism.
Ask Seymour Hersh what it means to be a good journalist.
He can tell you.
Something like that might have once existed,
but it is almost completely gone now.

dismay that JDG has been exposed, and (get this!) feel the
criticisms are not only unjustified, but are actually
some sort of witch hunt.
Log Cabin Republicans are gay folk without enough
respect for themselves than to support the entrenched

I was further advised that as soon a s we inputed
info in TSA website it was automatically
registered on IBT's computers. Whe I made inquiry
about "IBT's computers", I was advised,
"yes...at our computers at Lockheed-Martin"
That means that our national security, at least
that sector concerned with "HaZARDOUS Materials",
is being handled NOT by people responsible to the
citizenry at elections, but rather is
being entrusted to the biggest defense contractor
( planes, rockets, missles, weapons-systems,
star-wars defense programs) in the world, which
is only answerable to its stockholders.
Of course their goal is the bottom line, profits,

"..what a sham, what a rotten, phony, fake document
this 2006 budget is. In the first place,
they're trying to fool you into thinking the deficit
is less than it is by using a fake number from
the previous year -- an early deficit estimate
set way high so they could claim the deficit had
been "dramatically reduced." Last year's actual
deficit was $412 billion, the largest ever, and
under Bush's budget this year, it will be $427
billion. The actual deficit, with war spending
included, would balloon to $1.4 trillion by 2010
under this plan. In the second place, the budget
contains none of the expenses for the war in Iraq
or Bush's plan for Social Security, presumably
in place by then. Third, the values reflected in
this budget are deformed."

tried to suppress al-Qaida report
You have to get news and analysis from non-American media
Federal officials were repeatedly warned in
the months before the 9-11 attacks that Osama bin Laden
and al-Qa'ida were planning aircraft hijackings
and suicide attacks, according to a new report that the
Bush administration has been suppressing. Critics
say the new information undermines the government's
claim that intelligence about al-Qa'ida's ambitions
was "historical" in nature. The independent commission
investigating the attacks on New York and Washington
concluded that while officials at the FAA did receive
warnings, they were "lulled into a false sense
of security". As a result, "intelligence that indicated a real and
growing threat leading up to 9/11 did not stimulate
significant increases in security procedures". The report,
withheld from the public
for months, until
after the phony US elections says the FAA
was primarily focused
on the likelihood of an incident overseas. However,
in spring 2001, it warned US airports that if 'the intent of
the hijacker is not to exchange hostages for prisoners
but to commit suicide in a spectacular explosion,
a domestic hijacking would probably be preferable.'"

private people (his friends) instead?
Just like "protecting" Social Security is really
a code name for destroying it.

Dennis Hastert calls the ãcrisis point.ä But
the entire federal government is paying out
more money than it takes in right now. Indeed
this has been the case for four years, thanks
to GOP tax-and-spending policies, and it will
continue. Why is it that a modest deficit in
Social Security that wonât begin for

occurring right now doesnât?"

Africa is the ultimate Republican dream - government

privatization of such things for the rich; no environmental
laws so the air is thick with exhaust;
high rise condos for the rich who exploit the natural
resources through raw use of power and
intimidation, tin roofed shacks for everyone else.
In other words, it's a total shithole - just what
the conservative ideology will create here without
the efforts of people like you and me.

paying Iraqi contractors in cash
U.S. officials in postwar Iraq paid a contractor
by stuffing $2 million worth of crisp bills
into his gunnysack and routinely made cash payments
around Baghdad from a pickup truck,
a former official with the U.S. occupation government
Because the country lacked a functioning banking
system, contractors and Iraqi ministry officials
were paid with bills taken from a basement vault
in one of Saddam Hussein's palaces that served
as headquarters for the Coalition Provisional Authority,
former CPA official Frank Willis said.
This is what you do when you're stealing $100M
You fabricate a "we
had to use cash and who can find receipts in a war zone" money
Then, in case the scared geldings ever ask about
the BartCop claim that Bush stole $100M a day,
they just say, "We had to
use cash ...and who can find receipts in a war zone" and
led by Bush friends Lee Hamilton, say, "See
Bart? Bush was honest the whole time he was in office!"
...and if the Iraqi contractors never
get one penny, what
can they do about it?

because Bush felt he was entitled to Iraq's oil.
by Joe Conason
What the budget does seem to show, however,
is a series of sharp reductions in funding for programs
such as housing assistance, veterans health benefits,
food stamps and home heating aid. This stinginess
toward the least fortunate is highlighted by Bush's
insistence on preserving every penny of tax cuts for
the fattest and happiest. Speaking last week at
the Detroit Economic Club -- in a city whose economic
devastation he has done nothing to relieve -- the
president offered all the usual, useless Bush bromides.
His speech lauded a local "VIP" businessman who "mentors" the
children of incarcerated parents, without
mentioning that his budget will deprive many of
those same kids of child care, food stamps and better schools.
(God bless the child who's got to survive on the charity
of Bush's friends.) He went on to reassure the
well-heeled audience that they will keep their
tax cuts and get even more, while promising to enforce
"real budget discipline" and "difficult choices" in federal
They applauded, of course.
...the Bush budget is practically meaningless,
with political symbolism its only real purpose. It permits
the president to pose as a zealous budgetary hawk
without changing his fiscally ruinous policies.
Like his Social Security scheme and his previous
budget projections, it is a financial sham..
