With Bush falling apart, hits are up.
Now's a great
time to advertise
"The power of the Executive to cast a man into
prison without formulating any charge,
and particularly to deny him the judgement
of his peers, is in the highest degree odious
and is the foundation of all totalitarian
government whether Nazi or Communist."
--Winston Churchill, Der Monkey's hero, November 21, 1943,
by Robert Parry as seen on consortiumnews.com
Bush reacted to the indictment of Libby
with a startling assertion about the U.S. legal system.
"In our system, each individual is presumed innocent
and entitled to due process and a fair trial."
While Bush's statement was surely intended to
remind the public that Libby has yet to be convicted,
it was remarkable to hear Bush endorse the presumption
of innocence and due process after all he
has done to erode those principles.
For four years, it has been a central legal precept
of the "War on Terror" that Bush has the absolute right
to imprison anyone of his choosing, including
American citizens, who are then denied even a day in court,
let alone a fair trial or presumption of innocence.
While the "rule of law" is usually defined as
the universal protection of everyone equally under the law,
Bush's "rule of law" seems to mean, "We rule,
so we decide who's protected by the law."
Those protections are denied people whom Bush
deems "terrorists" or "bad guys."
Bush's lip service to presumption of innocence,
for example, must have been cold comfort to Jose Padilla,
a U.S. citizen held without charges and without
the benefit of his day in court since May 2002.

Saddam Co-Defendant's Lawyer Slain
Joining Bush's dog-and-pony handjob gets you killed
Three gunmen in a car killed a lawyer for a co-defendant
in Saddam's trial and wounded another Tuesday.
It was the second assassination of a Saddam defense
team lawyer in less than a month.
Saddam's main lawyer blamed Bush, saying that
the shooting was carried by "a group using government vehicles."
"The aim of these organized attacks is to scare
Arab and foreign lawyers," al-Dulaimi said. "We call upon the
international community and the UN to send an
investigative committee because the situation is unbearable."
You ask for help from the UN?

Bart, I now have a 50 caliber rifle in every room
in my house. Someone asked me last night
if I could protect my loved ones when stampeded
by a herd of rhinos.
They asked what I would reach for when those bastards
started raping my wife and daughter right in front of me.
Well.. I, of course, had to answer, "I don't
know." So I gathered up every 50 caliber rifle I could find.
Those bad boys are in for a surprise when they
try to rape my wife and daughter right in front of me.
Now, Bart, ask yourself, "Is this Glock going
to be enough when the rhinos attack?"
When you hear that thunder in the distance, and
then the ground begins to shake, it will be too late.

Attack Six in Illinois
A 10-year-old boy was in critical condition after
three pit bulls went on a rampage,
attacking six people before police
arrived and killed the dogs with their guns.
The attacks started when children going door-to-door
for a fundraiser arrived at the home of Scott Sword,
who owned the dogs. I heard this bizarre
sound," said neighbor Debby Rivera. "I looked out the window,
and I saw a young boy. The dogs were just jumping
on him. The screams were horrible," she said.
The dogs were "relentless, like they were possessed."
The pit bulls attacked the two children, and when
the dogs' owner tried to stop them, the dogs turned on him
and bit off his thumb, Nygren said. The boy's
father also tried to protect his son and was attacked.
The dogs went after another neighbor as well.
Residents threw rocks at the dogs to try to distract
them before police arrived and shot the animals.
Jim Malone said he and a neighbor tried to beat
the dogs back with baseball bats.
"He'd hit them, they'd run, and they'd come back,"
Malone said. "This went on for 15 minutes."
So, maaaaaaybe you don't live in New Orleans,
so you don't need a gun.
And maaaaaaybe you don't live in Illinois or
anywhere else where dogs might go crazy.
How Democratic of you to depend
on the police to show up - in time.
I mean, how many times could a pit bull bite a
child before the cops arrive?
By the way, Jimmy
is a successful lawyer, he's white, and he probably has a nice house.
I'll bet the cops
come to his neighborhood every time they're called.
But what if you're
not a successful lawyer, not white, and live in a tough part of town?
I have other ideas about protecting my family,
and sure, I'll call the cops as soon as I can,
but standing there with a baseball bat
trying to fend off three pit bulls that keep returning?
I'm not sure that meets the definition of protecting
I know what your next line is:
"How often does a pack of dogs attack?"
"How often is your home invaded?"
"How often do religio-crazies riot and burn
Burn France for a 12th Night
Religious handjobs are rioting in 300 French
cities. Rioters in the southern city of Toulouse set fire
to a bus after ordering passengers off, and hit
cops with gas bombs and rocks and torched a nursery school.
The AP says 1300 cars have been torched since
they started rioting..
Sure, you could wait until after
the home invasion, after the dog attack, after
the riots to buy a gun, but why would you?
A gun can be the difference between helpless
and not helpless.
I like not helpless better.
Sometimes you lefty-liberals puzzle me.
You're kinda taunting me for being in a position to protect my family.

"How could anybody think this is torture?"
Monday, Bush defended U.S. torture practices
and called the treatment of terrorism suspects lawful.
"We do not torture," Bush lied in response to
reports of secret CIA prisons in a dozen countries overseas.
Bush supported an effort spearheaded by Cheney
to block a proposed Senate-passed ban on torture.
"We're working with Congress to make sure that
as we go forward, we make it more possible to torture,"
Bush said. "There's an enemy that lurks and plots
and plans and wants to hurt America again. And so,
you bet we will torture them. But we will do
so under the law. There is no torture."

phosphorus bombs in Iraq
He loves the smell of murder in the morning - "Smells
Italian TV has broadcast a documentary accusing
the US military of using white phosphorus bombs
in Falluja. Rai says this amounts to the illegal use of chemical
arms, though the bombs
are considered incendiary devices.
Eyewitnesses and ex-US soldiers say the weapon
was used in built-up areas in the insurgent-held city.
The US military denies this, but admits
using white phosphorus bombs in Iraq to illuminate battlefields.
Washington is not a signatory of an international
treaty restricting the use of white phosphorus devices.
Why is Saddam on trial for gassing the Kurds (with
Rumsfeld-provided poison gas)
while Bush is illegally using phosphorus bombs
to kill civilians in Fallujah?

Subject: war crimes
The torture issue is extremely important.
However, with every passing hour, things just
keep getting more immoral.
Has anyone tuned into Italian TV to see the documentary
about the US military using chemical weapons
against civilians in Iraq earlier this year?
It's too bad we don't get the CBC in the US, so voters can see
what these monsters have been doing in Iraq to

will try to deny that a tweeked formula for napalm is not
a chemical weapon. However, you drop this
shit on a town in the US, it will be recognized for what it is
--a chemical used as a weapon that dissolves
flesh to the bone on contact.
And to think a president with a weakness for sexual
pleasures and a desire for adultery was impeached.
We have the FBI ( hi, guys!) snooping into 30,000
private citizens each year with no court oversight.
We have a president that says we don't torture
people, but a vice president who wants Congress to
approve torture. We have a president, vice
president, secretary of state and secretary of war who
lie to us and the world about getting us into
a middle east mess. We have a congress that says, OK.

Nuclear Secrets to China
by Robert Parry as seen on consortiumnews.com
Lewis Libby, Cheney's indicted ex-aide, gained
insights into how intelligence can be manipulated for
political gain as a key adviser to a 1999 investigation
into the loss of U.S. nuclear secrets to China.
Although the evidence pointed to security breaches
during the Reagan-Bush years, the probe focused
blame on Democrats Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton.

Subject: Bush crimes are impeachable
Bart, please take a look at the Whiter House's
website for the letter
he sent Congress dated March 18, 2003.
The Dems should be smart enough to point out that
Congress' 2 preconditions
had to be certified before Bush could go to war.
So he lied his teeth off when he signed that
Letter to Congress saying that those
he was attacking were guilty of two things:
1. Imminent threat with WMD.
2. Responsible for Twin Towers and Pentagon
attacks in 2001.
Now the Dems have proof he lied on both, with
the recent AlQuaeda nada reports;
as well as the WMD lies. So there, isn't
that enough to start impeachment bills?
It's right there in black and white! He
lied, so he cries!
I have not seen this discussed anywhere!
Can your BLOG help wipe out the Criminals?
My best to you and yours,
told Saddam could hit U.S.
Sen. Bill Nelson said Monday the Bush administration
last year told him and other senators
that Iraq not only had WMDs, but they had the
means to deliver them to East Coast cities.
Nelson, D-FL, said about 75 senators got that
news during a classified briefing before last
October's congressional vote authorizing the
use of force to remove Saddam from power.
Nelson voted in favor of using military force.
Nelson said he couldn't reveal who in the
administration gave the briefing.
The White House directed questions about the matter
to the Department of Defense.
Defense officials had no comment on Nelson's
Nelson said the senators were told Iraq had both
biological and chemical weapons, notably anthrax,
and it could deliver them to cities along the
Eastern seaboard via unmanned aerial vehicles - drones.
"They have not found anything that resembles an
UAV that has that capability," Nelson said.
"That's news," said John Pike, director of GlobalSecurity.org,
a Washington, D.C.-area military and
intelligence think tank. "I had not heard that
that was the assessment of the intelligence community.
I had not heard that the Congress had been briefed
It's not news to me - I've been talking about that for two years.
I wonder how Tequila boy knew and the fancy GlobalSecurity.org
When your president says, "Saddam can hit the
Eastern Seaboard with WMDs in 45 mniutes,"
how could a senator, like Hillary, say, "I
don't care! Defending America is wrong!?"
From the left, I get, "Hillary
should have known better," but that makes no sense.
Hillary doesn't have a private CIA - she doesn't have a team of deep
cover spies lurking in Iraq.
Can anybody answer that?
How was Hillary supposed to say no to defending the Eastern Seaboard?

Subject: Secret prison
Even though Bush has secret prisons in countries
that allow torture, Bush claims that he isn't torturing prisoners.
He says, "We do not torture!". But we've seen
the pictures from Abu Ghraib, so do we believe him or our own lying eyes?
In spite of his claim that he doesn't torture,
he is pressing Congress for an exemption for the CIA to allow them to do
what he says they don't do. John McCain is supposedly
fighting against Bush on the torture issue but he's been AWOL
in this fight as he is spending all his time
in California trying to help Schwarzenegger undermine democracy in California.
What I think we should do is ship the White house
staff to these foreign prison camps to be interrogated to see who
committed treason be outing a CIA agent who was
the wife of an ambassador. This ambassador was revealing that
Bush lied to get us into a fraudulent war. Since
Bush says that they don't torture anyone and that these secret prisons
are legal, then they shouldn't have any complaints
about what might happen to them. Since a CIA agent was exposed
then the CIA should get to use these prisons
that Bush has said is a legal means of questioning.

We've never flew out at night for a trip, so this was different.
We boarded our Southwest Airlines flight at 7 PM, due to land in Las

on the flight and then took a nap.
We landed, and immediately I was insulted by Sin City.
I had to check - yep - all they had was that awful Cuervo swill.
They had expensive Cuervo swill, too, but it's all Cuervo swill to
We got luggage and took a cab to The Palms.
Tally got us "special rooms" at a "special rate" because she has her
own "casino host,"
like Sam on NBC's "Las Vegas," but he was a man so he wasn't as cute
as Vanessa Marcil.
They gave us a spectacular, brand new room in the "Fantasy Tower" that
Even the drinking glasses in our room seemed drunk.
It was so new, they were still doing construction.
Oh, that's lovely. We got the 18th floor
and construction was on the 19th floor and in Las Vegas, they need
rooms so badly, some
construction was 24/7 - I kid you not. It was late, we were tired from
the trip so we called it a night.
The next morning we waited for Tommy, Tally,
Chicago Jim and his wife to arrive.
Mrs. Bart went to see the Van Gogh paintings at the Bellagio,
but I only had one thing on my mind - poker!
But first I wanted to eat at one of my favorite Vegas restaurants -
I don't know how they do it, but they have the best ham in the world.
I've had a half dozen sandwiches there, and their ham is the tastiest,
prettist ham you ever saw.
First, there's no rind, (Hear that, Subway?) and
it's the most perfectly uniform pink color you ever saw.
So "white things," no "pools of dark red," just perfectly perfect ham,
so I ordered "extra meat."
Hmmmm boy, you can't beat a Ham & Provolone from Vegas Subs - then
I was on to The Poker Room.
By 6 PM, the gang was all here so we had to make another food plan.
Of course, I suggested Vegas Subs, but Tally shreiked
at the suggestion!
She wanted to eat fine food.
When I protested "fine food," they offered to pay because they're DINKS.
(Double Income, No Kids)
So the six of us went to Smith & Lewinsky's for a
fine steak dinner. Tommy and Jim are both world travelers,
(I stopped leaving America after I was
thrown into a Mexican Jail with my good
They know all about which wines to order, and they got lobster and
weird stuff I couldn't pronounce.
After that, it was back to Jim's suite at Paris for some
U2, pre-concert DVD watching.
(Note: There were no drugs of any kind at this
party, nor was there any alcohol.)
We watched Sunday, Bloody Sunday from Sloan Castle, where
the songs ends with Bono
screaming the names, apparently from memory, of the 29 people killed
in Dublin that day.
I was impressed, but I'm sure Bono was just being "fake" again. He's
Next was Until the End of the World from the same show
- the most exciting version ever.
Next we watched the other "fake" part of the Boston DVD show, where
Bono pulls a young gal
from the audience to lie with him onstage as he sang With or
Without You to her.
Then the big closer, Bullet the Blue Sky where Bono recreats
the assassination of John Lennon.
The song ends with his head snapping back from the bullet, a la
the Zapruder film.
U2 - they're so fake.
Then it was Friday, the day of the big, big show. As I headed towards
Palms Poker Room,
I was alone on the elevator when a well-dressed black man got on.
I sensed I was about to be robbed
(because he was black) so I tried to "disarm" him (learned that in
poker) by speaking first.
"Are you winning?" I asked?
That's what you say in an elevator in Vegas because, "Nice
weather," is a damned lie.
He looked at me as tho I was speaking Chechnyan.
I rephrased the question: "Are you ahead or behind on your
He said, "I'm not here to gamble, it's all
I asked what kind of business he was in and he said, "Busta
I said, like the dorkiest white guy ever,
"Are you Busta Rhymes?"
He laughed and said, "You don't know what Busta
Rhymes looks like?"
I started to say, "I could probably pick him out of a line-up,"
but stopped myself
because you know how blacks can be - he might've cut me with that knife
they all carry.
I told Tommy about it and he said The Palms has suites
with fully-functional recording studios,
in case some rocker is partying there with some musician friends and
a killer riff pops into his head.
In the Poker Room, I heard Sharon, the smart, confident and foxy Poker
Room Manager saying she was
sitting in for a male dealer later that weekend because the dealer
couldn't keep his eyes on the game.
Intrigued, I leaned in for more details.
Turns out Hugh Hefner was in da house with his six personal
playmates, and they were playing
Strip Poker, (by invitation only) and they needed a female dealer who
could concentrate on the game.
Why do I mention that?
Because that's one reason so many people claim to f-ing hate
Las Vegas, because they know that someone is
playing Strip Poker with topless Playmates there (probably for TV)
and it's not them, so Vegas is bad, bad, bad.
Now it was approaching time for the U2 concert.
I'm not going to bore you with the details, thus preventing many subscription

after the show we split up because

Oh, I almost forgot - while we were partying, Tally wanted to "F" with
Tommy so she asked me to
