Hey Monkey, YOU forgot 9-11 when you called of the hunt for Osama
so you could invade Iraq and steal their oil, ...ya lying bastard.
by Robert Parry as seen on Consortiumnews.com
In the government's pursuit of the death penalty
for Moussaoui, FBI officials have inadvertently revealed
how an even mildly competent Bush could have
prevented the 9-11 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people
- and set the country on a dangerous course for
A... big part of the problem was the lack of urgency
at the top. Bush, who had been President for half a year,
was taking a month-long vacation at his ranch
and shrugged off the growing alarm within our intelligence community.
Bush's role was crucial. As President, he was
the best-positioned official to force the various parts of the government
to undertake a top-down review of what was known,
what evidence was being missed, what could be done.
Counterterrorism chief Richard Clarke said Clinton
reacted to such threats with urgent top-level meetings to
"shake the trees" at the FBI, CIA, Customs and
other relevant agencies. Clarke said senior managers would
respond by going back to their agencies to demand
a search for any overlooked information and to put rank-and-file
personnel on high alert, as happened when an
al-Qaeda plot to bomb Millennium celebrations was thwarted in 1999.
One thing is certain: Bush is no Clinton.
Clinton sought to prevent attacks, Bush
sought to profit from them after we buried the dead.

Don't Have to Obey the Law
No need for him to obey his own Patriot Act
When Bush signed the reauthorization of the USA
Patriot Act this month, he included an addendum
saying that he did not feel obliged to obey requirements
that he inform Congress about how the FBI
was using the act's expanded police powers.
The bill contained several oversight provisions
intended to make sure the FBI did not abuse the special
terrorism-related powers to search homes and
secretly seize papers. The provisions require Justice
Department officials to keep closer track of
how often the FBI uses the new powers and in what type
of situations. Under the law, the administration
would have to provide the information to Congress by certain dates.
Bush signed the bill with fanfare March 9, calling
it "a piece of legislation that's vital to win the war on terror
and to protect the American people." But after
the reporters and guests had left, the White House quietly
issued a "signing statement," that said that
Nush did not consider himself bound to tell Congress how
the Patriot Act powers were being used
We need to impeach this bastard.
Where can we find a Republican who respects the rule of law?
Curb Your Monkey
Dear Laura, It's time for you to act. Nancy Reagan
did it. You can, too.
Things are falling apart. They always do in the
second term. And when they do,
there's only one person who can change things:
the wife. You are the only one who
can tell him the truth. You are smart, astute;
you're not afraid of him and you love him."
so let me get this straight - when you criticize
previous candidates for not fighting hard enough, that's constructive
criticism, but when someone else criticizes hillary
(or clark, or at one time kerry) for not being left enough,
pro-choice enough, anti-war enough you wonder
why they'd want to "hurt the obvious front-runner"?!?!
I'm going to vote for the Democratic nominee.
Anyone else who says that has my blessing.
People who look forward to throwing their vote
away on a candidate who won't get three
percent of the vote must want more
of the hell we're in now.
just because your life fared better under the
clintons doesn't mean everything they touch turns to gold.
there were millions of newly created poor in
this country and throughout mexico, and central america who
think clinton is just the 42nd american president
trading dark people's livelihoods for multinational corporations profits.
and the better those of us here in the bully
of the beast fared under clinton, and the more his loyalists had to defend
from those GOP blow job police, the more he was
able to pass nafta and the like.
i get trying to keep her momentum going, but you
can do that through criticism. and the more hillary gets, the better,
its the only way she's going to hear what 'the
people' are needing. otherwise the only criticism she's going to hear is
going to be coming from religious groups, and
business groups and they'll pretend they speak the people's words.
and without anybody telling hillary otherwise,
she'll probably believe them - why else would we actually consider
that in 2006 to 'play it safe' the liberal would
have to be warm to banning certain abortions, not be 'too' anti-war?
i've enjoyed reading your site for years but i
just don't get this blanket apology/free pass you are giving to hillary
- she's DLC for christ sakes. her interests appear
to be business interests - not yours.

To Call For Mehlman's Resignation?
In light of his recently-revealed connection
to the New Hampshire phone-jamming scandal, here's a fun memo
from Ken Mehlman from August 2005 talking about
how it is "vitally important that our election system be free
from fraud and intimidation." The RNC Chairman
was responding to an American Center for Voting Rights report
on voter fraud in the 2004 presidential election.
Mehlman waxed particularly sanctimonious when noting the RNC's
"zero-tolerance policy" for voter fraud, intimidation
"The position of the Republican National Committee
is simple: we will not tolerate fraud; we will not tolerate
intimidation; we will not tolerate suppression.
No employee, associate, or any person representing the
Republican party who engages in these kinds of
acts will remain in that position."
That letter, dated August 9, 2005, was sent just
two days before the RNC admitted they were paying for
James Tobin's legal defense. Note that Tracey
Schmitt, the RNC media contact on the anti-voter
suppression memo, was also the one quoted by
AP defending the RNC's support for Tobin.
"The fear factor inside the Democratic Party
is appalling," he added. "You've got these small-minded
Democratic-consultant-driven political leaders,
and then you've got real neocons who refuse to listen
to the base of the party...You have these voices
of unbridled ambition - Hillary Clinton first among them
- who are asking the base to nominate them, when
they're not even listening to the base when it comes to
the most important issue in American politics
today." Look at the 2004 convention in Boston, Michael said:
"Ninety percent of the people in that nominating
hall wanted to end this war, and they wound up voting in
a ticket where both candidates voted for it -
and said they still supported it.'"
Correction to his Hillary frothing
- Hillary has not asked anyone to nominate her.
We assume she's running, but she's not going to
mention it until 2007.
I want unbridled ambition in
a Demo candidate. Without it, we're stuck with candidates
who don't mind losing and aren't we all damn tired
I want to end this war, but I
doubt 90% of Democrats do, even today.

or even a decent one, but I loved the title.

Bush is 'just plain wrong'
ABC News is a Mickey Mouse company in bed with America's biggest
Senator Arlen Specter, A vocal Republican critic
of Bush's secret spying program will preside over
Senate efforts to make Bush's illegal spying
legal, but he was pessimistic that Bush wanted to listen.
"They want to do just as they please, for as long
as they can get away with it," he said said.
"I think what is going on now without congressional
intervention or judicial intervention is just plain wrong."
Specter was one of the first Republicans to publicly
question Bush's authority to monitor international
calls when one party is inside the United
States without first getting court approval. The NSA has
been conducting the surveillance when calls
and e-mails are thought to involve al-Qaida.
That bold print is what the lying government
they are doing.
Why is ABC News printing Bush claims as tho they
are proven facts?
Because they are whores who are
doing all they can to help Bush hide the truth from Americans.

Prolonged heat will cause recrystallization of
steel and make it weaker. The flames from the jet fuel and other
that caught fire inside the World Trade Centers
did not have to reach temperatures to where the steel would melt;
instead they only had to heat the steel to a
point of creep, about 1000°C. This was easy to do because contrary
what Loose Change and many conspiracy sights
out there suggest the adiabatic flame temperature of the kerosene
fuel Jet-A is 1727°C, not 800°C.
As you can see
here Jet-A gets hot.
According to my Pocket Ref the highest melting
point any type of steel can achieve is 1,505°C and lowest
melting point for any type of steel is 1,388°C.
Jet-A easily overcomes these temperature barriers.

Why she might already be unstoppable
[Opponents] will face in Hillary the most formidable
presidential front-runner in modern political history.
(And, yes, I am counting George W. Bush in 2000.)
Here are 10 reasons why she will be a daunting foe:
1) Universal name recognition.
2) Her capacity to raise $100 million like
that. (snaps fingers)
3) The ability to dominate the free media, tracked
by 100 reporters.
4) Her emotional support from a significant percentage
of women voters out to make history.
5) Nostalgia for Bill Clinton's peace and prosperity.
6) Continuing Democratic resentment over impeachment.
7) Hillary's over-cautious political style that
avoids risk and mistakes.
8) The most potent candidate surrogate in political
history - her husband.
9) The ability of the Clinton name and legacy
to attract minority voters.
10) At least a half-dozen candidates who will
divide the anti-Hillary Democrats.
She could win
major primaries with 35 percent of the vote.
Hmmmm, ...I was just thinking of how poorly I've set this up.
When she wins, dozens of people will hate me for being right.

our country back from Bush,
you have failed to mention a possible alternative to Hillary and I

Hey, Bart --

but I thought you might be interested in reviewing
some of the reasons she might not be our best choice:
The Hawk to Read
Note: They couldn't draw a nastier look on Hillary's face?
Hillary's newfound centrism isn't completely
insincere. Her bellicose interventionism has a history:
it was Hillary who berated her husband for not
bombing Belgrade soon enough and hard enough.
As Gail Sheehy relates in Hillary's Choice:
Hillary expressed her views by phone to the
President: 'I urged him to bomb.' The Clintons argued
the issue over the next few days. [The president
expressed] what-ifs: What if bombing promoted
more executions? What if it took apart the
NATO alliance? Hillary responded, 'You cannot let this
go on at the end of a century that has seen
the major holocaust of our time. What do we have NATO
for if not to defend our way of life?' The
next day the President declared that force was necessary.
Love the site!
Van, thanks for that, but that's a right-wing rag quoting a whore named
Sheedy recalls what Hillary told Bill on the phone?
Unless Bill or Hillary repeated the conversation to the Sheedy whore
(not even implied)
it means Sheedy is either a mind reader or a just another Beltway whore
Besides Sheedy being a mind reader, the author can see into the future!
Hillary would have occupied Iraq a decade earlier,
riding into Baghdad at the head of her troops
like Pallas Athena descending on the Trojans,
striding boldly into what Gen. William E. Odom
has described as "the greatest strategic disaster
in our history."
How about that!
Hillary is going to be guilty of "the greatest
strategic disaster in our history."
