"I have gone over his head, I've gone to the American people. 
  And we employ him, he's our employee."
     -- Cindy Sheehan, reminding Bush that his top priority shouldn't be Halliburton,  Link


 Mirage After Mirage After Mirage
    by Robert Parry at  consortiumnews.com


Since the invasion in March 2003, Bush and his backers have hailed one mirage of false hope after another, from the toppling of Saddam Hussein’s statue, to Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” speech, to the slaying of Hussein’s two sons, to Hussein’s capture, to the transfer of “sovereignty,” to last January’s elections – and finally to the proposed constitution. [See Consortiumnews.com’s “Sinking in Deeper.”]

Yet, even as the Iraq War skeptics turned out to be right and the pro-war pundits were exposed as gullible or worse, the same Washington dynamic of a pinched debate about Iraq has continued to apply.

No pro-war columnist has been fired for showing inadequate skepticism about Bush’s claims. No anti-war thinker has been added to the op-ed pages of major newspapers to make sure there is more skepticism now.

Indeed, there has been no appreciable change in either the make-up or the ideology of the TV pundits. As little accountability as there was for senior Bush officials for misleading the country to war, there’s been even less for star journalists who failed to ask the tough questions. [For more, see Consortiumnews.com’s “Washington the Unaccountable” or “Bush's Nation of Enablers.”]



"Look, I don't attack people on their weaknesses.
  That usually doesn't get the job done.
  Voters already perceive weaknesses. 
  You've got to go after the other guy's strengths.
  That's how you win."
--Karl Rove, on how McCain was "an insane coward" and Kerry was, "that lying traitor."
           It also explains why they made Bush our greatest war hero - because it's such a joke    Link


Oil flow hurt in storm's wake?
Translation: Gouging is what they do best


Hurricane Katrina paralyzed the oil industry in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico on Monday,
raising fears that damage to offshore platforms and pipelines could trigger a supply
crunch in the world's largest energy consumer.

The hurricane, which slammed into New Orleans after plowing through the Gulf, shut at
least half of the region's oil production, a quarter of gas operations, and forced shut eight
refineries along the coast -- sending crude oil prices to record highs above $70 per barrel.

Just like Bush's unmetered oil wells in Iraq, how do we know the oil platforms were damaged?
Every time someone sneezes, the oil companies say, "We have to raise prices," and the media
and the president go along with this handjob of a gouge.



 Journalists didn't bother vetting war claims
   But every word from Cindy is parsed 100%


The news media are failing to acknowledge their own responsibility for the invasion of Iraq,
even as they report with glee Cindy Sheehan's antiwar protest outside Bush's fake ranch...
But the news media ought to explain why they broke their moral covenant with the American
people to provide complete, balanced, fair and accurate information about the charge to war.
Americans have a right to ask journalists how they intend to ensure that sound journalism
prevails in the future for all kinds of news. They have a right to ask what journalists will do the
next time they get caught up in an administration's strategy to market a war or other action
that can harm the American people.

Now and then the media admits, "We didn't check Bush's war claims closely enough,"
and then they turn around and give him a complete pass on his next set of lies.

Hey media - screw you and your fake apologies.
We know you're on Bush's team, so stop claiming that you're journalists
while you're waving Bush pom poms all the time.


Lil Kim - going to jail for lying and nobody died.

Bush the Monkey - not going to jail,
and his lies have killed thousands.

Subject: what is the noble cause?

Whether or not you agree with the Iraq conflict, Cindy Sheehan is asking an important question
that should be answered. She is asking, "What is the noble cause is her son died for."

If Americans are being asked to give the lives of their sons and daughters, their wives and husbands,
and their parents then America should at least be able to articulate why it is that we are there and
what we hope to accomplish. The reason we went in has proved to be false. There were no WMDs.

Iraq has recently failed to agree on a constitution and the unsupported proposed constitution to be
voted on establishes and Islamic state. So - is establishing an Islamic state the noble cause that we
are fighting and dying for? I sure hope not!

The real issues that Cindy Sheehan is trying to point out is that we don't know why we are there
and we don't know what we are doing. The problem is that there is no plan. Even the most
hawkish of the war supporters need to at least know that Bush has a plan.

 Subject: pot story


been on vacation for 2 weeks, just catching up on the site,
I saw a program on discovery a couple of years ago, where they said
it was due to religious reasons, if Christ had turned weeds into Weed,
then we would now be smoking it.

Alcohol is God's product, so it must be good.

Jim R

Can you imagine Jesus at a pot party - and they run out?
"Yo Jesus, we're out of weed, Dude.  Can you help us?"

And then Jesus turns tobacco into some killer bud then they ask,
"But Jesus, why did you save the good stuff for last?"



 Dems to Question Roberts on Torture Memo

 Link .

Democrats plan to question Supreme Court nominee John Roberts about a disavowed
Justice Department memo that critics say led to torture in foreign prisons, top Senate
Judiciary Democrat Patrick Leahy (D-Bushrubberstamp) said Monday.

Then-Assistant Attorney General Jay Bybee argued in a Jan. 22, 2002, memo that the
president has the power to issue orders that violate the Geneva Conventions as well as
international and U.S. laws prohibiting torture.

"It will be raised, partly on the question of to what area — if any — can a president
be considered above the law," the Rubberstamp told reporters.

We already have an all-torture Executive branch.
Why not have a torture judiciary, too?

Hi Bart,

Show 80 was really good.
Nice mix of different features.
Really funny and serious.

Dude, thanks for that.
I'm working on 81 today.
Hope I'm funny...



Can you believe how awful this dress is?
Jessica Simpson - can you be that blind?

You look almost as stupid as Bush in his economy dress.

Subject: Cindy Sheehan across the Atlantic

Bart, I think the time is ripe to make note of Brian Haw in London. He has been keeping vigil
in front of Parliament for over 1500 days and has been a thorn in the side of Blair and Parliament
the way Cindy has been to Bush. They have even passed special laws to try to evict him.

He has written a fine letter to Cindy Sheehan, which is posted on his website.
I think it would be good to show the war protest solidarity across the Atlantic.
And it's another example of what one person can do to harass the monkeys.

Grower, thanks for that.
Did you give Brian the Bartcop sticker?

BIG Protest March

Sept 24

We're having some signs made.

         Those are our "Worst president ever" signs

So far, we have $1848 in the sign fund.
Do you have any extra cash for signs?

It's not tax deductable, but
think of the money you'll lose
if those bastards win again.

 Subject:   donation

Bart, here is money for DC signs..& Tequila Question..can't find Chinaco Anejo here.
How is Herradura Silver 100% de agave 80 proof?

PS. think I'm going to DC,"if" I sign up for a sign, how does one get it?

Rick, thanks for that.
I don't like any of the silvers, not even the Chinaco.
To me, they taste like rubbing alcohol.
The anejos have been "aged" with fruits & flowers
which gives it the fantastic flavor that I crave so much.
There's a Link to buy Chinaco Anejo on every Bartcop front page

As far as the signs, we'll announce a place for people to meet.
I believe the signs must be attached to the special poles, too.
If you don't have special poles, the Secret Cervix will steal your signs.

Note: We're gaining steam on the big protest march.
Watch here for important details soon!

 Crowe suit settled


Russell Crowe settled a civil lawsuit filed by the New York hotel clerk he assaulted
in June with a telephone.  A statement released by both parties said Crowe and
Nestor Estrada had settled the case but offered few details.

"Both sides expressed satisfaction at the resolution," the joint statement said.

Local tabloids said Crowe paid about $100,000 to settle the civil lawsuit.
He still faces criminal charges of assault.

         "It's my lucky day."

How can he still face criminal charges? The settlement surely contained a clause
saying Nestor cashes the check only if he refuses to testify, right?

But at least the blackmailer was only paid $100K, and not $15M as was reported.
I still don't understand those who liked the $15M figure.


Subject: gas prices

Bart, can't disagree with you on how crappy the fuel prices have gone up.
Only thing, if we went to Iraq to steal the oil, why is the price up to $70/barrel?

Ron the military guy

Ron, Bush is stealing the difference.
I filled up yesterday - $42.
When Clinton was president, we had peace, a budget surplus and a fill up was $24.
Bush is stealing that extra $18 because the scared-bunny Democrats and the whore press
refuse to call him on any of his crimes.

That's why Cindy Sheehan is a saint.
She's got nothing but guts and look what she's been able to do.

Besides the $130M he steals from Iraq every day, the BFEE steals $18
from every working family in America every week, the bastards.

 Arizona Daily Star drops Coulter


The Arizona Daily Star in Tucson has had enough of Ann Coulter. In a column announcing
a wide range of changes in the paper's opinion pages Monday, Editor and Publisher David
Stoeffler revealed that the paper was dropping Coulter's syndicated column. "Many readers
find her shrill, bombastic, and mean-spirited. And those are the words used by readers who
identified themselves as conservatives," Stoeffler wrote.

As shrill and mean-spirited as Coulter is, her lies didn't get 1900 soldiers killed.


Subject: I met Cindy

Hey Bart!

I went to protest with Cindy Sheehan last weekend.

Sorry, but I had no BartCop stickers; that and the Democrats were the only things missing
at Camp Casey. I plan on hooking up with her when she visits Tom Delay and anywhere
else she stops in Texas.

If things work out, I'll be in Washington on Sep 24th for the impeachment protest!


Bart, this woman is incredible. She speaks from the heart, saying the things that you and I have
been saying for years. I got all choked up when I met her, because for the first time in four and
a half long, long years, I felt some hope. Hope! Really! Odd isn't it, that one woman has done
in a few weeks what no one else in America has been able to do: stand up to that coward Bush
and keep the media's attention for longer than 15 minutes.

Thank goodness for Cindy! She is the beginning of Bush's end.

Cindy, the media and Bush propaganda
  by Carla Binion


Cindy Sheehan's critics have claimed her son, Casey, and other soldiers volunteered to fight of their
own free will and that Cindy and other soldiers' families, therefore, have no room to complain.
Media commentators often fail to mention that many American soldiers volunteered based on
Bush's misleading rhetoric, and I've never heard anyone in mainstream media admit they helped
further the Bush lies.

With the Republican PR firm's "You Don't Speak for Me, Cindy" group on the march, and with
the 9/11 anniversary's propaganda blitz on the horizon, it would be good to have a few people
of conscience in mainstream media cut through all the impending bull. If they did, maybe Bush
would fool fewer of the people and fool them less of the time, and maybe some lives would be
saved in the process.


 Inquiry into Bush Lies Gains Momentum


Congresswoman Barbara Lee (Dem., Calif.) has introduced a Resolution of Inquiry in the
House of Representatives (H. Res 375) which, if passed, will require the White House and
the State Department to "transmit all information relating to communication with officials of
the United Kingdom between January 1, 2002, and October 16, 2002, relating to the
policy of the United States with respect to Iraq."

If you click on that link, you'll get links to a PDF of the Resolution and a flyer to help you
promote co-sponsorship of the Resolution of Inquiry by your congress member.

 Subject: bishop entrapment

That's the thing about entrapment; you can't get trapped if you don't take the bait.
The biggest complaints about it come from celebrities, polititions, and officials.
Those are the folks who demanded and got bans on these type of sting operations.
These shitheads get up in front of the cameras and blubber about how their rights
have been violated as if they were as innocent as a newborn babe. I'm sorry,
but when the very act of taking that bait is a violation of the law (or the moral
precepts you are responsible to uphold as a clergy member or teacher) you're
fucking guilty as hell. And, nothing excuses you're weakness.

While what bishop "honey-digger" was doing may not have been illegal (depending on
which state he was in) that act is a phenominal breach of trust with the entire Catholic
Church most especially the membership of the diocese he served. If he were a man of
honor, he would resign, but then if the Catholic Church valued men of honor Pope Rat I
would never have been promoted past parish priest and would have been encouraged
to enter a monestary as a cloistered brother under watchful supervision.

But what do I know, I'm just an atheist.

(and that was before the 2002 Halliburton Upgrade)
 times today's oil price which is   $67.20 a barrel

...while he is "hard at work."

Thanks to Bruce Yurgil

Bush's bloody war is acceptable.

"Nobody likes this war. Nobody thinks it's a wonderful thing.
We don't want to make decisions about foreign policy and the
security of a country simply based on the grief of a mother."

 Hey Mike, what about the grief of 1879 (and counting) mothers?
 Or should we make foreign policy based on lies about WMDs?
