"How important is the new Osama bin Laden tape?
The last time we got a tape from Osama was
right before the 2004 presidential
election. Now here we are, four days away from Bush wiretapping
hearings and up pops another tape from
Osama bin Laden. Coincidence? Who knows."
Jack Cafferty and the dawn's early light,
by Robert Parry as seen on consortiumnews.com
The origins of George W. Bush's imperial-style
government can be traced back to the extraordinary moment
a quarter century ago when Ronald Reagan was
sworn in as President and 52 Americans hostages were
simultaneously freed in Iran. Americans were
swept up in a surge of patriotism and many bought into the idea
that Reagan's tough-guy image had scared Iran's
fundamentalist Islamic government. The reality of that fateful day
now appears to have been quite different, but
the cover-up of a Republican scheme that bordered on treason
remains an important state secret even 25 years

In May 2001, Jack Abramoff's lobbying client
book was worth $4.1 million in annual billing for the
Greenberg Traurig law firm. He was a friend of
Karl Rove. He was a Bush "Pioneer," delivering at least
$100,000 in bundled contributions to the 2000
campaign. He had just concluded his work on the Bush
Transition Team as an advisor to the Department
of the Interior. He had sent his personal assistant Susan
Ralston to the White House to work as Rove's
personal assistant. He was a close friend, advisor, and
high-dollar fundraiser for Tom DeLay. Abramoff
was so closely tied to the Bush Administration that he could,
and did, charge two of his clients $25,000 for
a White House lunch date and a meeting with the President.
From the same two clients he took to the White
House in May 2001, Abramoff also obtained $2.5 million
in contributions for a non-profit foundation
he and his wife operated.
Held Contamination Facts
Troops and civilians at a military base in Iraq
were exposed to contaminated water last year and employees
for Halliburton couldn't get their company to
inform camp residents. Halliburton, Cheney's company, disputes
the allegations even though they were made by
Halliburton employees and documented in company e-mails.
"We exposed a base camp population to a water
source that was not treated," said a July 15, 2005, memo written
by William Granger, the Halliburton official
who was in charge of water quality in Iraq and Kuwait.
"The level of contamination was roughly 2x the
normal contamination of untreated water from the Euphrates River,"
Granger wrote in one of several documents.
Think if Clinton's former company was making billions
off a war he lied to get us into.
And if that same company was screwing our troops
on the battlefield - and making a profit doing it?
It's not that they made a mistake - no, they
withheld the facts about the dirty water from the troops.
Making our soldiers on the battlefield sick?
Why isn't that treason?
Clinton would've been voted guilty of high crimes
but the sacless Democrats are soooooo afraid
to raise their voice.
"We follow the orders of Mr. Rove..."
Great site, just ran across it.
Keep up the good work for the true patriots.
An older but wiser Viet Vet: Thank You
Wow - a positive letter in my mailbox?
That was unexpected.
As details poured out about the illegal activities
of Jack Abramoff, White House officials sought to portray
the scandal as a Capitol Hill affair with little
relevance to them. Peppered for days with questions about
Abramoff's visits to the White House, Scottie
the Underbear said Abramoff had attended two huge holiday
receptions and a few "staff-level meetings" that
were not worth describing further. "The President does not
know him, nor does the President recall ever
meeting him," McClellan said.
The President's memory may soon be unhappily refreshed.
TIME has seen five photographs of Abramoff and
the President that suggest a level of contact between them
that Bush's aides have downplayed. While TIME's
source refused to provide the pictures for publication,
they are likely to see the light of day eventually
because celebrity tabloids are on the prowl for them. And that
has been a fear of the Bush team's for the past
several months: that a picture of the President with the admitted
felon could become the iconic image of direct
presidential involvement in a burgeoning corruption scandal
But, since there is big money to be made protecting the illegal
bastard - we may never see those pictures.
Subject: Jill Carroll
I can respectfully agree to disagree with you
about many things: Hillary, guns, torture, etc.
But for you to continue making sweeping statements
about how all journalists are whores,
and then condemn reporter Jill Carroll for doing
her job, well, what is there left to say?
I didn't say she was a whore.
Why are you building this into something it's
Here's what *I* said:
> She chose to
enter a kidnap zone and that's crazy.
> You and I weren't
kidnapped because we're smart enough to stay away.
> I blame Bush.

"I don't care what George Bush tells you, our
military's been run into the ground. More than half of our troops

have long-term effects for our national security for decades."

You sometimes hear people wonder about leaving
They ask, "when will we know that it's

I guess one answer would be, "any time before
The story about the Bush plan to require all people
crossing US borders to
carry passports or similarly "secure documents"
brought this to mind.
Conveniently, this is supposed to be implemented
by Dec. 31, 2007.
Why then? Is that the prelude to martial
law and suspension of the
2008 election "for national security?"
Is it just a matter of time before we begin reading
about people being

Your fan (almost always),
I've said for years that the BFEE will not allow a Democrat
to be president.
That's why Bush is pushing so hard to make the presidency omnipotent
Bush will hand-pick his successor, or just say, "Fuck
the Constitution" and declare martial law.
When that happens, the Repubs and the media and the Democrats will
"That's OK because Godly Bush just wants to
protect us," like they're doing now.
The difference is the 200 million guns that Democrats hate with all
200 millions guns makes us hard to control, that's why they'll use the
media to convince us
that Bush is a great guy, taking away our rights, "for
our own good."
When Bush puts tanks in the streets "to keep
order," it'll be too late to buy a gun.
"Halliburton is a joke. I can't even list the
problems with their service, but I guarantee they
do not receive less money based on
how many of the showers don't work, or how many of us
won't eat in the chow hall often because
we get sick every time we do. I wish every American
could see this for him/herself.
There should be jail terms for this."

Get Up and Walk Out
by William Rivers Pitt
Bush's State of the Union address is January
31. It is my strong belief that every Democrat should,
at a predetermined moment, stand up and walk
out. No yelling. No heated words. Simply stand and leave.
Crazy, I know.
Crazy, and possibly the best idea ever
put before a body of Democrats since the New Deal.
Damn, wish I'd thought of that...
Subject: Not dumb, insane
I'm very worried. I am worried most I think
about the media in this country,
it is almost as though they have become a part
of this frighteningly stupid new government.
Do you remember what the President said on TV
when confronted with the fact that Saddam
had no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. He
said this: "Well but he could have"
.....and the press... the media just blinked
Subject: Why I use Google
One of the reasons I use Google to search the
web is that Google has a stronger commitment to
civil liberties than Microsoft's MSN and Yahoo
do. MSN and Yahoo turned over search information
to the Bush administration to support their policy
of spying on The People.
Google stood up for our rights and said No to
Bush. So I'm going to stick with Google
because I want to support companies who understand
that freedom is important.

to Pay $1.1M for cheating
A judge has ordered LA cops to pay $1.1 million
in legal costs to the family Notorious B.I.G. as sanctions
for intentionally withholding evidence during
the family's civil lawsuit trial. The judge didn't give the family
the $2 million originally sought, but she left
open the possibility of an additional $300,000.
"It's pretty clear from the ruling that the judge
understands this is a significant and difficult case,"
said Perry Sanders, lead attorney for the rapper's
Judge Cooper declared a mistrial last summer in
the family's civil lawsuit after finding that a police detective
hid statements linking the killing to two crooked
LAPD Officers. She also ordered the city to pay their legal costs.
