Political Earthquake in Palestine
  by Ivan Eland  as seen on consortiumnews.com


Editor's Note: The victory of Hamas in the Palestinian elections represents another intrusion of hard reality 
into George W. Bush's world of propaganda and wishful thinking. As we have noted in previous articles, 
elections themselves do not necessarily bring all the wonders that Bush has claimed in making the forcible 
export of "democracy" the rhetorical centerpiece of his Middle East strategy.

Americans also can be easily misled on this point because they rarely get an unbiased account of how the 
conflicts in the region evolved. In the case of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the truth is that no side has 
entirely clean hands. Few Americans know, for instance, that some of Israel's founders -- the likes of 
Menachem Begin and Yitzhak Shamir -- had ties to Zionist terror groups that helped drive the British 
and many Palestinians off the land that became Israel.

Caspar: Reagan Warned Before Beirut Blast
  I've been telling you that for years


A former defense secretary for Ronald Reagan says he implored the president to put Marines
serving in Beirut in a safer position before terrorists attacked them in 1983, killing 241 servicemen.

"I was not persuasive enough to persuade the president that the Marines were there on an impossible mission,"
Caspar Weinberger says in an oral history project capturing the views of former Reagan administration officials.

Weinberger said one of his greatest regrets was in failing to overcome the arguments that "'Marines don't cut and run,'
and 'We can't leave because we're there'" before the devastating suicide attack on the lightly armed force.

"They had no mission but to sit at the airport, which is just like sitting in a bull's-eye," Weinberger said.
"I begged the president at least to pull them back and put them back on their transports as a more defensible position.".

Reagan was a Bush-level idiot who got those 241 men killed with his incredible stupidity.

The Joint Chiefs begged Reagan to house those men on ships, where they'd be safe, but Reagan the Idiot 
wanted the "symbolism" of having them in town where trucks could reach them. This is how Al Qaeda 
first learned that America will cut and run after you kill a bunch of soldiers. Reagan taught them that.

In a few weeks, Bush will have killed ten times more soldiers with his stupidity than Reagan.

Subject: Monkey speech


Congratulations on your ability to watch the SOTU - I can't stomach the guy 
enough to let him in my living room.

I've been thinking about all the things W doesn't know and I wonder why the 
average American can believe he can relate to or represent their interests:

He's never HAD to work.
He's never worried about "putting food on his family"
He's never run a successful business.
He's never worried about losing insurance.
He's never had to save for retirement - or worry that he wasn't doing it very well.
He's never written anything himself and cannot put a coherent thought on paper.
There must be lots more.......

Keep it up Bart! You keep me from going in to a funk!


Subject: Hillary the front runner?

Simple question: Exactly what has Hillary done that makes her the front-runner right now?
Chicago Bryan

Last poll I saw she was 29 points ahead of Kerry, who was second.
She can also raise more money than any other candidate, plus she has that magic name.


Where's the Budget Outrage?


This week the Republican Party hopes to escape its immediate past. House Republicans will elect new leaders. 
They hope that the party's corruption scandal will be forgotten and that the names Tom DeLay and Jack Abramoff 
will become as unmentionable in their world as Lord Voldemort's is in Harry Potter's.  Bush hopes for a new start 
with his State of the Union address. The words from last year he wants to wipe out of the political lexicon include 
"Brownie," "Katrina," "heck of a job" and 'Social Security privatization.'"

Bush has spent.stolen more money than all presidents combined, then he stands there 
in his big speech and calls for "fiscal restraint," and nobody even rolls their eyes.

Bush continues to skate, because the Democrats refuse to call him on anything.
He's like an"F" student who's never passed a test, but if the teacher fails to grade 
his paper and fails to reports his less-than results, he'll keep claiming to be an "A" student.


Subject: finance

The fist and only time I've ever given to a political campaign…

I sent John Kerry's juggernaut $35.00…only to have him roll over 
like a poodle when his victory was stolen from him.

Lesson learned, anyway…



Tortureboy vs Feingold


Feingold charged that Attorney General Gonzales misled the Senate during his confirmation hearing 
a year ago when he appeared to try to avoid answering a question about whether the president could 
authorize warrantless wiretapping of U.S. citizens. In a letter to his lying ass, Feingold demanded to 
know why Gonzales dismissed the senator's question about warrantless eavesdropping as a 
"hypothetical situation" in January 2005. At the hearing, Feingold asked Gonzales where the president's 
authority ends and whether Gonzales believed the president could, for example, act in contravention of 
existing criminal laws and spy on U.S. citizens without a warrant.

Will Feingold do more than "demand" an answer that will be a lie, or maybe just be ignored?
If it's against the law to lie under oath, why won't Feingold just say that?

Instead, he'll say, "Perhaps your answers were less than candid."

One reason Republicans win is they speak in frank, simple terms.
Democrats always look for a way to be nice ...and polite.


Subject: finance a surrender

Since I was 18 years old, I am now 52, I have given of my time
and money to the Democrats ... Those days are OVER for me ...

DUHbya stealing the election in 2002 only made me donate more and work harder ...
Then in 2004 Kerry elected not to fight which nearly sent me over the edge ... BUT ...
The Democrats rolling over and playing dead in the Alito vote has 'done me in !' ...

As of this morning I have disowned the Democratic Party ...
Thirty-four years of walking precincts, sending in checks, working the Election(s)
all for basically nothing, nada, zilch ...

We did have the Clinton years of which we can be proud of ...
It's certainly sad to have witnessed the demise of the party ...

Bart, your check is in snail mail, since I WON'T be donating to a group of Quitters ...

Savings in Negative Territory
 Bush sends savings to lowest level since 1933


Consumer spending rose at a rapid pace in December, far outpacing income growth, a development
that helped to push the savings' rate for the year down to the lowest level since the Great Depression.

The Commerce Department said Monday that consumer spending rose by 0.9 percent in December,
more than double the 0.4 percent rise in incomes.

To finance the increased spending, Americans dipped further into their savings, pushing the savings rate
for all of 2005 into negative territory at minus 0.5 percent. That was the lowest annual savings rate since
a decline of 1.5 percent in 1933, a year in which the country was struggling to cope with the Great Depression.

"The worst since the Great Depression" is a phrase we'll continue to hear.
Soon, the phrase will change to, "Even worse than the Great Depression." 


Subject: record profits but they still won't pay

It amazes me that so many press outlets can trumpet Exxon's record $38 Billion profits without 
the slightest mention of the fact that 17 years after the Exxon Valdez disaster, Exxon still refuses 
to pay the $4 Billion settlement awarded to the victims. The courts originally awarded $5 Billion, 
but reduced it on appeal to $4 Billion. Exxon has offered to pay a paltry $25 million. 

Nor is there any mention of the fact that US taxpayers have paid more than $237 Billion 
to secure "American Interests" (ie: Oil Industry interests) in Iraq.

Top 50 Loathsome Americans


42. Nancy Grace

Charges: Revenges herself nightly for the murder of her fiancée on every criminal suspect
and defendant; facts be damned. Despite her viscous, Gump-like hyper-drawl, her brain can
barely keep pace. Looks like a camel in drag.  Her crude vindictiveness is to the myth of the
southern belle what Roots was to the myth of the genteel South.

Plus, she harpied a needle into Scott Peterson's arm.
I'd never seen anyone harpied to death before.

Paranoid Fantasies About 9-11


One of the wilder stories circulating about Sept 11, and one that has attracted something of a cult following 
amongst conspiracy buffs is that it was carried out by 19 fanatical Arab hijackers, masterminded by an evil genius 
named Osama bin Laden, with no apparent motivation other than that they "hate our freedoms."

Never a group of people to be bothered by facts, the perpetrators of this cartoon fantasy have constructed an 
elaborately woven web of delusions and unsubstantiated hearsay in order to promote this garbage across the 
internet and the media to the extent that a number of otherwise rational people have actually fallen under its spell. 
Normally I don't even bother debunking this kind of junk, but the effect that this paranoid myth is beginning to 
have requires a little rational analysis, in order to consign it to the same rubbish bin as all such silly conspiracy theories.

These crackpots even contend that the extremist Bush regime was caught unawares by the attacks, had no hand
in organizing them, and actually would have stopped them if it had been able.


Subject: Molly Ivins

Hey Bart,

I read Molly's January 20th article last week and didn't think for a minute she was betraying the 
Democratic cause and doing the Republicans a favor.  Her piece was one of the first I've read in 
a long time that struck a chord with me, especially since I haven't seen/heard a single, courageous 
Democrat stand up and effectively denounce this administration and put forth a common sense alternative. 

At this point, after the Alito confirmation debacle, 
I feel that the majority of Democratic senators have betrayed their constituent's trust.

Molly Ivins hasn't hurt the Democrat's chances any more than the current Democrat office-holders have.
 Jon B

Jon, why are we discussing how much Molly's comments hurt our side?
Wouldn't it be better if she attacked the other side, instead of Hillary?

Cindy Sheehan Arrested at Capitol


Cindy Sheehan was arrested and removed from the House gallery Tuesday night just before
Der Monkey started his pack-of-lies State of the Union address, a police spokeswoman said.

Sheehan, who was invited to attend the speech by Rep. Lynn Woolsey, D-Calif., was charged with
demonstrating in the Capitol building, said Capitol Police Sgt. Kimberly Schneider. The charge was
later changed to unlawful conduct, Schneider said. Both charges are misdemeanors.
Sheehan was taken in handcuffs from the Capitol to police headquarters a few blocks away.

Schneider said Sheehan had worn a T-shirt with an anti-war slogan to the speech and covered it up
until she took her seat. Police warned her that such displays were not allowed, but she did not respond.
Police handcuffed Sheehan and removed her from the gallery before Bush arrived.

Bush says, "I welcome debate and a free exchange of ideas,"
then he has a women arrested for wearing a t-shirt with the number of Bush victims on it.


Subject: Exxon-Mobil profits

If their sales were 36,000,000,000,000 (I know, that looks ludicrous)
then they only made 10% profit, which is above average, but not gouging.

I work at a grocery store and we operate on only 1-2% margin, and that's the lowest around.
Again, I'm not trying to stick up for these guys, but I really can't bring myself to blame them
for getting what they can when they can, after all, that's capitalism, right?


Jay, no, that's gouging.
Capitalism is about competition lowering prices.

Oil companies no longer compete - they just steal from us - because they can.
There is no competition - they have a monopoly. 
Oil is going to $100 a barrel, then $200 - bet on that.

They'll blame China, they'll blame the Democrats, they'll blame heavy rains in Burma, then Exxon 
will make $72 billion in profits next year and claim, "We only passed on higher costs,"
while the Democrats and the American whore media stay silent on the subject.

Bush started a war so they'd have an excuse to raise prices.

All they have to say is "Fire at the refinery" and they raise gas prices by 50 cents.
If someone yells "pipeline hit by insurgents," they raise the price another 50 cents.

Then they testify before congress and lie - because they're not under oath.

Subject: the irony of January 31

 I'm amazed at the irony of losing Coretta Scott King on the day Samuel Alito is confirmed.
A champion of civil rights falls while a destroyer of them is put in a lifelong post.

The lessons of the last 50 years are so easily unlearned. Shame on all of us.
And shame on the people who refuse to back Hillary.
I doubt there has ever been a time when we democrats needed more to stand together than now.

Keep swinging the extra-large hammer Bart.

Drunk with Power
  Helen Thomas gives the drunk Hell


We are now learning what President Bush considers to be the limits of his power - nothing. 
In public appearances this week, Bush defended his program of domestic spying without court 
approval, citing the inherent war powers of the presidency under the U.S. Constitution. 

The president points to his status as commander-in-chief and the resolution - approved by Congress 
three days after the 9/11 attacks - authorizing "all necessary and appropriate force" against the terrorists. 

It is an obvious overreach of presidential prerogative; thin justification for what amounts to a 
snooping foray against Americans and others in the U.S. It all smacks of France's Louis XIV's 
famous dictum: "L'etat, c'est moi" - 'I am the state.'"


Subject: Microsoft

Hi Bart,
Just an FYI: Microsoft isn't a "Republican donor". 

They do provide matching funds for employees so they end up with money everywhere 
but BillG and most of the other top execs who set policy are long standing and very 
generous liberals who quietly fund a lot of our Democratic candidates up here in the Northwest.

Congratulations on the 10 years, my virtual friend, and thank you.

Mike, Gates has been giving money to powerless quitters and trembling, cave-in specialists?
I thought he was smarter than that.


 Subject: e-mail I sent to the DNC

I am a loyal member of the Democratic base, and I have to tell you, that lately I've been
a little jealous of the Republican base. They get pandered to, all the time. Do you think that
maybe you could pander to us, just a little?

After all, the conservative Republican base just got a new Supreme Court Justice, could we
maybe get a little something to ease our pain? Say something like appoint a minority leader in
the Senate with a spine? Maybe one from a blue state that didn't have to worry so much about
being re-elected?  Maybe even a real fighter like Senator Boxer? Please?

"What if Bush offered/accepted Osama's truce and then, under the flag of truce, 
  had Osama killed and his minions rounded up?  It's amusing to imagine what 
  some of Bush's biggest critics might say." 
    -- Jonah Goldberg, son of Luci the Bat    Link

 Jonah, I thought of some good news:
 It wouldn't hurt Bush's reputation because he's already known worldwide
 as a crazy bastard who enjoys lying, killing, torture and breaking his word.


Subject: Hillary

What you people fail to realize is that Hillary has a not-so-secret weapon: Bubba. 

Even some of the most dyed-in-the-wool Republicans pine for a return the halcyon days 
of Bill Clinton's record budget surpluses, booming economy and cheap gas as well as his 
competent, intelligent administration and effective diplomacy. 

All Hillary has to do is make sure all her photo-ops include Bubba 
as if to say: elect me -get HIM back in the White House.


You may not believe this, but there are a LOT of Bill Clinton haters in our left wing.
I hear from them daily - they hate his f-ing guts with all their heart - times 100.

We don't want to win.
We want to be victims and losers - losers with honor.

"Of course Bush doesn't want to get warrants. What judge is going to allow

     -- Nash,   Link


Subject: The Dems who helped Alito

Now you have more faces for your tutu line-up. 
And Hillary isn't there. Okay that's two good things. 

I am SO GLAD I no longer live in the USA, as far as I'm concerned 
it has ceased to be a democracy and is now a totalitarian fascist state.
Good luck y'all. 

Don't bother with elections or voting, not this year and not for the next president, 
for even if you vote Democratic your candidate won't work for you (or in many cases, 
can't, is obstructed by the Republican overlords) or machines will say you voted Republican, 
and the next President will be Jeb Bush, appointed by Alito and the Supremes.


If the Democrats don't do something about the Diebold problem, we'll lose for sure.
But they think now is too early.

Like in 2004, they'll wait until late October, a week before the election and then ask a
federal judge to order all machines inspected and tested when there's no time to do that.


Subject:  more lives from Bush

In his State of the Union address, Bush urged the Congress to be responsible.
If only he'd take his own advice, he wouldn't seek to extend his "leave no millionaire behind" tax cuts,
that will drive multi-hundred billion dollar per year deficits as far as the eye can see.

He has the nerve to talk about how we should support our fighting men and women.
How about having legitimate reasons for sending them into harm's way?

Bart, you published ...

> Dude, you speak the obvious.

Are you sure 9-11 was not a bush/Republican success?
9-11 seems a bit too lucky for these BFEE folks who we
already know to be lying mass murderers.

What's your take on 9-11, and don't hedge.

Greg, all we know for sure about 9-11 is that Bush is lying and he doesn't want the truth to get out.
When the democrats allowed Lee "Whitewash" Hamilton to speak for us on the 9-11 Commission,
all was lost because Hamilton is on Bush's payroll - that's why Bush chose him - to hide his crimes.

Utah town loves Bush


In Randolph, Utah, where  Bush received 95.6 percent of the vote and support for him continues to be 
nearly unanimous -- the mind-set is even more specific to a place that seems less a part of the modern 
United States than insulated from it.  There have been no funerals here from Bush's war on terrorism. 
There are no unemployment lines, no homeless people sleeping in doorways, no sick people being turned 
away from a hospital because of a lack of insurance, no crime to speak of, no security fence needed 
around the reservoir, no metal detectors at the schools. Terrorist threats? That's anywhere but here. Iraq? 
That's somewhere over there. Hurricane Katrina? That was somewhere down there. Illegal immigrants? Not here..."
