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

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
stupidity than Reagan.
Did President Bush persuade you that he has the
right plan for the country? * 34715 responses

Lesson learned, anyway…
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."

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."

It amazes me that so many press outlets can trumpet
Exxon's record $38 Billion profits without

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

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
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.

I read Molly's January 20th article last week

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.

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

If their sales were 36,000,000,000,000 (I know,

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
