"Jack Abramoff's partner Mike Scanlon admitted to digging up former Congressman
  Robert Livingston's private life with a New Orleans dominatrix.  Set to become speaker,
  Livingston then got sidelined for Tom DeLay's man Denis Hastert. Prosecutors now

Military Action Against Iran?
  by Ivan Eland  as seen on consortiumnews.com


In 2003, Iraq tried to show that it had no weapons of mass destruction, even letting United Nations inspectors
search any site of their choosing. But George W. Bush ordered the bloody invasion anyway, killing tens of
thousands of Iraqis and imprisoning the country's former leaders. Iraq's bitter lesson was not lost on Iran and
other so-called "rogue" states, which now see little reason to disarm and cooperate with the international
community. In this guest essay, Ivan Eland looks at the looming confrontation with Iran

Hillary Blasts Bush on Eavesdropping


Hillary called Bush's explanations for spying on us without warrants "strange" and "far-fetched"
Wednesday in blistering criticism ahead of the president's State of the Union address.

"Obviously, I support tracking down terrorists. I think that's our obligation. But I think it can
be done in a lawful way," the 2008 Democratic presidential front-runner said.

"Their argument that it's rooted in the authority to go after al-Qaida is far-fetched. Their argument
 that it's rooted in the Constitution inherently is kind of strange because we have FISA and FISA
 operated very effectively and it wasn't that hard to get their permission," she said.

Bush claims the process takes too long, even tho the warrants can be requested after the fact.

So is this good news or bad news to those who want a non-Hillary president?


Delusion and Illusion Worthy of Dickens
  by She who hates everybody


As the White House drives its truckload of lies around the country, it becomes ever clearer that
Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and Al Gore are just not the right people
to respond to the administration's national security scare-a-thon.

We got mired in Iraq in the first place partly because Dick Cheney and Rummy thought that,
post-Vietnam and post-Clinton, America was seen as soft. One shock-and-awe session,
one tyrant stomped on, they reckoned, and the Arab world would no longer see Americans as wimps.
That reasoning turned out to be dangerous, flying in the face of warnings from our own intelligence experts.

"The Dems need to drum up a decent message so they look as if they know what the Dickens they're doing
before the November election. Otherwise, they'll look like bowed supplicants holding out gruel cups to
Karl Rove and pleading, 'Please, sir, I want some more.'".

The scared bunny Democrat wimps need a heaping dose of  bartcop.com


Subject: checks and balances, my ass

Dear Bartcop:

The Congress, the Courts and the executive all lack the right to wiretap me, arrest me, or execute me
without probably cause, a trial with full rights and due process. Those rights apply to everyone.

The government doesn't have the right to short-cut those rights, even if all branches agree.
Those rights belong to the people and are "inalienable".
There is a name for politicians who usurp these rights: tyrants!


E.L., I agree 100 percent.

Their position is "Absolute power does not corrupt."
Some of them say, "Absolute power might corrupt some people, but not Godly Bush."

Please don't send the Democrats any money until they filibuster Alito
and put the Corrupt Fascist Dictator back in his place - or behind bars.


Message to John Kerry: Take a Stand - Filibuster Alito
 A Buzzflash Editorial


What the Dems have failed to understand in recent years is that you win by winning. It's that simple.

Americans respect winners. Winning changes perceptions in and of itself.
You can't be perceived as strong on national security, when you don't have the guts
to defend yourself from attacks that you don't have any guts.
We stood behind John Kerry even when he wouldn't stand up for himself.

John Kerry should stop with his meaningless petitions and stand up for democracy.



I went to this Hollywood party and I ran into Sylvester Stallone. And he said,
"I hear you went over on a USO tour."  And I said "Yeah, yeah, I did."

He said, "Yeah, I was gonna go, but I didn't."  And I asked him why and ge said
"Well, I heard it might be dangerous."  And I said to him, "Weren't you friggin Rambo?"
     -- Al Franken, veteran of 6 USO tours, including two to Iraq,   Link

Why doesn't the vulgar Pigboy do a USO tour?
Why doesn't O'Reilly or Hannity or the other loud-mouthed lying blowhard bastards?


Dems Drop the Ball Again
  by Arianna Huffington


The Democrats don't seem to know what the Republicans know: that the GOP is losing ground
on its core issue of national security. That's why Bush is planning to shift his State of the Union focus
away from Iraq and onto an attack on rising health care costs. And the re-emergence of the architect
of 9/11 -- promising to bring further death and destruction to our door, and touting Iraq's help as an
al-Qaeda recruiting tool -- can only further weaken Bush's national security standing.

So why don't the Democrats have the guts to aggressively go after Bush on the issue?

The Democrats will never become the majority party until they can prove to the American people that they
have a better plan for keeping us safe. And that means having someone like Jack Murtha give the State of the
Union response -- someone with the authority to make the point that, on every level, Iraq is the wrong priority.

She's right - the Dems are in a permanant state of cluelessness.
They can't even get ahead of Bush when the country has turned on him.

Bush: Bin Laden Should Be Taken Seriously


The Giggling Murderer, defending his illegal spying on American citizens, said Wednesday
that Americans should take Osama seriously when he says he's going to attack again.

"When he says he's going to hurt the American people again, or try to, he means it," Bush told reporters
after visiting Snop Central, the NSA. "I take it seriously, and the people of NSA take it seriously."

Uh, excuse me, President Asshole, but YOU were the one who said,
"Bin Laden doesn't concern me - I don't think about him very much," a few years ago.

If you had the brain of a nine year old, you could make up your mind.
But you don't, so you can't.


Subject: Del Castillo

I saw one of the dudes from that band sit in with a local group
at a hippie brunch on a sunday morning...(got that??)

I was blown away.

He was the best player I can remember seeing...

The Del Castillo boys are so talented, you'll praise them even if you don't like their music.
When Rick's old band (20 years ago) played my Hard Rock Island, they played Metallica,
Zeppelin, Floyd, Hendrix, Dokken, Iron Maiden etc and country bands showed up to watch.

Too bad I don't have one of those anti-Hillary web sites.
If I did, I'll bet I could afford to hire them for BartFest Austin.

Subject: Detroit vs the World


I agree with most of your rants, and enjoy your site very much.

I don't see how you can think that Japanese cars are 'better' than American.  (I just retired from Ford in upstate N.Y.)
I've driven Toyotas, a Lexus, a Subaru and find them to be terrible in mechanical performance and lackluster interiors.
I drive a 1999 ford crown vic with 177,000 miles, my son's Windstar has 160,000, and daughter's dodge van has 155,000.

Bottom line is when Americans buy Japanese, you hurt other Americans and are spitting on Amer. auto workers.
The European u.s. market is too small to impact very much on Amer. workers.

Just my opinion with a few of my facts.
Keep hammering Bush
Rosie-the riveter

Rosie, three points:
I recently saw that GM makes 72 different vehicles.
   It's my guess Honda and Toyota make fewer than ten, each.
   Why can't GM learn that simple lesson?

My opinion of cars is just that, but Americans are voting with their wallets.
   Cutlass Supreme used to be top car, now Toyota Camry is.

While Japan was doing R&D on hybrids, Detroit kept building bigger and bigger tanks.
    Why can't Detroit see the future as clearly as our Japanese friends?


Subject: Show 87 m3u links not working

Bart, all the links for show 87 point to show 78!!!!!

The m3u files are all wrong Bart.
Plus the Download links download show 78.

Better call your local geek and get this patched up,
I have been WAITING & WAITING for a new show!!!


Buck, it's a mystery.
The links are correct, but it's not working.

You get Show 78 because Windows re-directs the link to whatever
file name is the closest - in this case that's Show 78.

The files are clearly there - you can download them just fine.

As far as I know, there are no experts in m3u technology.
My best guess is my new computer has a switch thrown the wrong way,
but like I said, I'm not aware of any experts at this stuff.

If you're on dial-up, it'll take a while to download the shows,
but maybe someone will see this and have a clue about what to do.

 I know how to fix that, Bart

Last thing: Some people are streaming the shows OK,
                   so maybe it's a switch on your end?

Subject: Del Castillo in Kansas City

You turned me on to these incredibly amazing musicians and now I have  influenced about 30 other
people and we will be going back to see  them next week when they come to Kansas City again.

Some people saw them on the Kill Bill 2 DVD extras, and loved them, but they aren't named.
Last time in KC we got to watch and listen from about 8  ft away, but I predict those times are limited!

Thank you for talking  about them and spreading the word; we love them and the music they make.
Del Castillo fans in Excelsior Springs MO .


Damn, I forgot they're on the Kill Bill 2 DVD,
They're hidden in the "Extras" section, but check them out.

Let's say you, the reader, know someone who's an incredible monster of a guitar player.
When Del Castillo comes to your town, write to me and I'll PayPal you enough money to pay for
your guitar player friend's ticket if you promise to make him write a review of the show he saw.

"We have seen this movie before. The history of the congressional Republican leadership since
it took power in January 1995 is one of coups, scandals, and early retirements. Every time a Gingrich,
Livingston, or DeLay gets knocked off his perch, a Hastert, Blunt, Wamp, or similarly unremarkable
and unknown pol instantly emerges from the shadows of obscurity to replace him. Republicans in the
House are like an army of the undead. No matter how many get picked off, more are always on the way."

I seem to recall at least one victim who survived torture who claims we scooped him up

Stretched to Breaking Point
 Our military is about to buss open


Stretched by frequent troop rotations to Iraq and Afghanistan, the Army has become a "thin green line"
that could snap unless relief comes soon, according to a study for the Pentagon.

Andrew Krepinevich, a retired Army officer who wrote the report under a Pentagon contract, concluded that
the Army cannot sustain the pace of troop deployments to Iraq long enough to break the back of the insurgency.
He also suggested that the Pentagon's decision to begin reducing the force in Iraq this year was driven in part
by a realization that the Army was overextended.

As evidence, Krepinevich points to the Army's 2005 recruiting slump - missing its recruiting goal for the
first time since 1999 - and its decision to offer much bigger enlistment bonuses and other incentives.

"You really begin to wonder just how much stress and strain there is on the Army, how much longer it can continue,"
he said in an interview.  The report gives a more sobering picture than military officials offer in public.

Remember Der Monkey in the 2000 campaign?  "Tell the military that help is on the way."
Since them, he's done everything to the military that he falsely accused Clinton of.

...yet the military families love him soooo muuuuch.


Subject:  Reagan

Reagan may have been a doddering old fool at the end but in 1980 he was spot on.

Spot on what?
What did Reagan have besides a Bush-level eagerness to learn and a cowboy persona?

At the time Bush was nowhere near getting in the White House.
I think you give Poppie a little too much credit and Reagan not enough.
Reagan had been trying to get into the White House since the 70's.


Yeah, and Gerald Ford, of all people, kicked his ass.
Reagan "won" because he stole, cheated and didn't give a damn about the hostages.
Meanwhile, Carter was burdened with a brain and a conscience.

Subject: Got your CDs

Hey Bart,

Just a note to let you know that the CDs arrived today.  Thanks dude!

I've burned them to my hard drive and will place them on my IPOD later tonight.
I'm going to wait to listen to them till I'm on the plane and going to the sand box.

Oh and I'm going to try to get a picture of myself with my Bartcop sticker while I'm over there.
If I get the picture I'll make sure to send it to you.

Thanks again, your site is hilarious.

Note: When T says he's "going to the sand box," he means Iraq.

Be careful over there, Dude.
How about a pre-emptive shot of Chinaco for good luck?



Subject: women losing their rights

I am truly afraid that women are going to see their rights disappear in the next few years thanks to Alito
.....if he gets on the bench.  And sadly, I am not able to believe that the Dems will grow any and actually
filibuster his sorry ass...so it's certainly likely that this is what is going to be happening.

As a 52 year old woman, I guess I won't have to worry about the loss of choice.....but we do have a
19 year old daughter and a 15 year old son.....what sort of world do I really want them to grow up in?
Not one like the repubs want, I know that for sure.

Virginia, abortion rights are just like Katrina.
If Jenna and Barbara Bush get knocked up by Mexican bandits or French drug smugglers,
they can afford to fly to Toronto or Montreal or Paris and have their abortions safely.

Bono Unveils 'Red' Philanthropic Program
 Another reason for the Bono haters to have a cow


Bono unveiled a new push to fight HIV and AIDS in Africa, announcing a partnership with
American Express, Converse, Gap and Giorgio Armani to sell products under a brand called "Red,"
with the proceeds going toward anti-AIDS programs.

Bono said the money would go to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

"So, here we are, fat cats in the snow, and I say that as one," he said to laughs.
"It is a great place to do business and we have some business we want to talk to you about."


Subject: Teddy on Bork

Ted Kennedy on Robert Bork
The modern benchmark for challenging judicial nominees based on their ideology is the speech
Ted Kennedy gave after Reagan nominated Robert Bork for the Supreme Court in July 1987.

"Robert Bork's America," Kennedy warned, "is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions,
blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens' doors in midnight raids,
schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of government,
and the doors of the federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens for whom the judiciary is
--and is often the only--protector of the individual rights that are at the heart of our democracy."

Brad O

I hear both MA senators talking a good game, but talk doesn't bring home the bacon.

...and NO, Hillary can't be the one to stand up.  They'd make her "the most radical leftist in the senate."

Ted and Kerry are from the most radically leftist state, so logic says it's their duty to stand up.
