"The Republican Party has to recapture a focus
on being a reform party.
We can win this fall, but I think it
does require real change.
And not just doing more of the same,
but real change."
Newt "family values" Gingrich, (R-Three Wives)
"Everybody knew?" by Greg Mitchell
Richard Cohen, the longtime Washington Post columnist
sometimes accused of being a "liberal," produced a
strong column today, titled "Bush Wanted War."
In it he said he had long been skeptical of this idea, but now
had come to accept it. That's all well and good,
but where was Cohen a little more than three years ago,
when this fact was as plain as the smirk on the
president's face, and the columnist agitated for war anyway?
If there was an "I'm sorry for being so stupid"
embedded in Cohen's column I didn't spot it.
He wrote: "The evidence Powell presented to the
United Nations had to prove that Iraq not only hasn't
accounted for its WMDs but without a doubt still
retains them. Only a fool could conclude otherwise."
Yet Cohen has the nerve to write today: "Colin
Powell, you may recall, soiled his stellar reputation with a
United Nations speech that is now just plain
sad to read. Almost none of it is true."
What about Cohen's reputation?
I applaud Greg Mitchell for pointing out the facts, but there are problems,
First, Cohen believed his president at the time and that's not always
an unforgivable sin.
Cohen is now saying, "We were
lied to, and I'm pissed about it."
That's more than most reporters (or Democrats) are saying these days.
But like I've been saying for a long, long time, it's EASY to look
I would be damn impressed with Mitchell is he linked to HIS March 2003
he guaranteed this war was a hoax - back then. If you've
been reading lately, you know
we've been flooded with letters saying "Everybody
knew Bush and Powell were lying,"
but that's what they say in 2006, not in 2003.
Sure, you and I felt we were being lied to, but we're talking about
How can Mitchell dump on Cohen without offering us his
Before every big boxing match, USA Today gets opinions from about 30
They'll quote Smith saying, "I think Tyson
will win in 8 rounds" and they'll quote
"I think Holyfield will knock him out in the tenth."
This prevents Smith from saying, "Everyone
knew Holyfield would win," on Monday.
So when Mitchell dumps on Cohen, shouldn't we be able to read his guarantee
"Bush and Powell were lying and everybody
knew it," back in 2003?
by Russ Never Sleeps
When the President breaks the law, he must be
held accountable. Yet, as we face a President who thinks
he is above the law, most Republicans are willing
to cede enormous power to the executive branch.
Their actions are not just short-sighted, they
are a departure from one of the Republican Party's
defining goals: limiting government power.
Republicans are losing sight of what ceding these
powers to the President now will mean for their own
party down the road. Those expansive powers will
rest with whoever sits in the Oval Office. Republicans
who argue today that Bush has the power to ignore
the law are relinquishing authority not just to him,
but to future presidents of any party. They are
helping to render future members of their own party
powerless to check an executive who claims expansive
powers under the Constitution.
fighting words for Bush
Since Eric Haney was a founding member of Delta
Force, you might assume he's sympathetic to Bush.
Haney has close ties to the Pentagon, so he's
privy to information denied the rest of us.
We recently spoke to him.
Q: What's your assessment of the war in Iraq?
A: Utter debacle. But it had to be from the very
first. The reasons were wrong. The reasons for taking us to war were
not what they stated. Tommy Franks was brow-beaten
and ... pursued warfare that he knew strategically was wrong in
the long term. That's why he retired immediately
afterward. His own staff could tell him what was going to happen afterward.
We have fomented civil war in Iraq. We have probably
fomented internecine war in the Muslim world between the Shias
and the Sunnis, and I think Bush may well have
started the third world war, all for their own personal policies.
Q: What is the cost to our country?
A: For the first thing, our credibility is utterly
zero. So we destroyed whatever credibility we had. ... And I say "we,"
because the American public went along with this.
They voted for a second Bush administration out of fear, so fear is
what they're going to have from now on.
Our military is completely consumed, so were there
a real threat, we couldn't confront it.
Right now, that may not be a bad thing, because
that keeps Bush from trying something with Iran or with Venezuela.
The harm that has been done is irreparable...
Sooner or later, everybody will agree that Bush
has been an ongoing 9-11 disaster for America.
Hey Republicans - you want to be the last guys to defend this Disaster
"One of the keys is going to be to get a unity
government up and running, a government that
reflects the diversity of the country...We
want the Iraqis to make that selection, of course.
They are the ones who got elected by
the people, the ones who must form the government."
-- Dubya, the Iraqi Kingmaker,
"Khalilzad said Bush "doesn't want, doesn't
support, doesn't accept" Jaafari as the next prime minister,
according to Mr. Taki, a senior aide
to Aziz al-Hakim, the head of the Shiite bloc. It was the first "clear
and direct message" from the Americans
on a specific candidate for prime minister, Mr. Taki said."
-- Edward Wong,
Subject: Army tattoos
Bart, about the Army, you wrote:
> "they'll take anybody."
It's a fuckin' TATTOO, you stupid bastard.
I know - I published the story, remember?
I'm drunk most of the time nowadays.
I find that hard to believe...
But even I can tell you're losin' it. Fuckwad.
Would an intervention help?
It's no fun beating you up if you won't remember it.
Name Change for Auschwitz
Bush family wants a royalty to let
their name be used
Son and Pickles retraced Grandad's footsteps in 2003
Poland wants to change the official name of the
Auschwitz death camp on the U.N.'s
world heritage directory to emphasize that it
was run by German Nazis, not Poles.
The government requested that UNESCO, the U.N.'s
educational and cultural body,
change the name from "Auschwitz Concentration
Camp" to "Former Nazi German
Concentration Camp Auschwitz-Birkenau"that
put money in Prescott Bush's pocket.

Subject: 9-11 conspiracy theories
There were 58 passengers on flight 77, the flight
that is supposed to have hit the Pentagon
and the flight that some conspiracy theorists
claim did NOT hit the pentagon on 9/11.
What happened to them? What happened to the plane?
I think simple questions like these need to be
addressed before we start taking these theories seriously.
Would Ted Olson allow them to kill his wife, Barbara?
Then again, ...she was a harping bitch...
"Prayer Doesn't Work"
In the largest study of its kind, researchers
found that having people pray for heart bypass
surgery patients had no effect on their recovery.
In fact, patients who knew they were being
prayed for had a slightly higher rate
Researchers emphasized that their work can't address
whether God exists or answers prayers made on
another's behalf. The study can only look for
an effect from prayers offered as part of the research, they said.
They also said they had no explanation for the
higher complication rate in patients who knew they were being
prayed for, in comparison to patients who only
knew it was possible prayers were being said for them.
Critics said the question of God's reaction to
prayers simply can't be explored by scientific study.
Subject: health care
Wouldn't universal health care also cure most
of our failing pension plans in this country?
Some of the cost of health care must surely be
measured against the cost of picking up
pensions that are going under, public and private
Tax payers get a break on many levels if we get
The problem is - health insurance is socialism.
"Let's pool our resources, spread out the
costs equally and we all win."
But the Republicans said that was worse than death, even tho they had
that exact same
system insuring their family's health in the House and Senate, they
killed it for the rest of us.
The Clintons tried to insure everybody - a practice that would
prevent abuses like $90 aspirins
- so the health care corps paid the GOP to kill health care reform
until a friendlier president would
allow the health care lobbyists to write the law that makes the bastards
"U.S., Mexican and Canadian leaders like to
be known as the Three Amigos.
But when two presidents meet a new
prime minister here today, they will be the Three Ducks.
Bush is a lame duck, Vicente Fox is
a dead duck and Harper is the duck that didn't die."
-- James Travers,
Subject: take the Jew down
After the recent cartoon about the prophet Mohammed;
it has occurred to me that the image of a Jew
in obvious pain and suffering crucified on a
wooden cross is equally offensive and politically incorrect.
What would you think of a religious group that
had a black man hanging from an oak tree as its icon?
Maybe it is time to take the Jew down.
Subject: 9-11 Pentagon
Three quick points.
1. We know something hit the Pentagon,
but how about some pictures to back up the official claims?
The Pentagon is only
the most highly surveilled place in the U.S. of A.
2. How did some flight school rejects manage
to maneuver a jumbo jet into a pin-point landing
to hit the Pentagon
at such an angle as to leave the roof intact?
Leaving the roof intact
required a very low trajectory/entry point of impact.
3. What happened to all the jet fuel?
The Towers supposedly fell because of the jet fuel,
but the Pentagon
had paper products and furniture sitting inside the path of destruction

dining, note to Tally
Hi Tally, I've lived in Vegas for a little over
ten years now, and here are some dining tips:
Best steak in vegas is Morton's on Flamingo
east of strip.
Pricey, but absolutely the best beef I've ever
(My fancy lawyer friend took us there - it was
Best reasonable steak in vegas is at Lonestar,
on Nellis north of Charleston,
east side of street. $29.95 for Tbone.
They have good beef.
Best tasting meal in Vegas is at Landry's,
on Sahara, west of the 15, directly across
the street from Palace Station. Plates
run $15 to $40. Southern steak and seafood.
Best dining experience, (bang per buck + quality
of food) Kavanaugh's on north side of Ann Road
near Simmons. Irish restaurant and lounge,
excellent atmosphere, food and prices. Machines at the
bar are kind of loose also. Plates range
from 7-25 dollars. Portions are man-sized, and the food is
especially good. Best meatloaf in vegas.
I'm single, and dine out frequently, both cuz
I'm finished cooking for this lifetime and I date a lot
of different women. Originally I am from
New Orleans, so I rejoice in good food. Finding it is

Aide to Plead Guilty?
Frog march, frog march, frog march, frog march...
Tom Rudy, a former top aide to Tom DeLay has
agreed to plead guilty to charges in the widening
federal investigation (that's tightening the
noose around DeLay's squirrelly little nuts) later today.
Rudy, who served as deputy chief of staff while
DeLay was House Majority leader, resigned in
2001 to become a lobbyist. He would be the first
person to plead guilty to charges in the case
since Abramoff pleaded guilty to fraud charges
Court papers referred to Rudy as "Staffer A,"
and said that Abramoff paid $50,000 in 10 payments
beginning in June 2000 to Rudy's wife to stop
Internet gambling while Rudy was a top aide to DeLay.
I hope they have enough on DeLay to run a stake
thru his heart because if he survives this,
he's going to be even more of an arrogant prick
when he returns to congress.

Subject: conspiracy theories
You can't totally blame the conspiracy theorist.
When OUR government spends $80 million on Clinton's
cock, but limits the
"official" investigation of the murder of 3,000
people to only $15 million...
...what would you think?
John in Ventura, CA
has good stuff.
crucifictions and 9/11
The conspiracy theorists work with the idea that
you cannot prove a negative. What they are missing,
is that the reality is far worse than a conspiracy.
The Bush government's primary sin was ignoring warnings
(perhaps intentionally, I don't know, since it
was obvious that any major attack on the USA was a welcome
excuse to trash the Bill of Rights and send us
into a permanent war).
But OBL couldn't have picked a better moment to
strike. The Bush Regime is and was intent on creating a
powerful oligarchy, like those that ruled many
Latin American nations for decades, with the support of our
tax dollars, and 9-11 is what got the ball rolling.
I think that was a bonus for OBL. He did not even expect it.
America doesn't need Al Qaeda to be destroyed,
with Bush in power, it will destroy itself quite nicely, thank you.

Bush is pursuing a remarkably effective "win-win"
strategy in Iraq, a highly flexible vision that is even now
ripening to fruition. The savage militias, ethnic
cleansing, mass murder, sectarian hatred and gruesome tortures
that are turning Iraq into a howling moonscape
of fear and chaos are but precision tools in the artful hands of
the Leader, as he patiently crafts the ultimate
The war aims of the Babylonian Conquest have always
been obvious to anyone who concentrates on the
operational reality of the action and ignores
the ludicrous cornball about democracy and security that Bush
dishes out to gull the rubes back home into giving
up their blood and treasure on behalf of his tiny, tyrannical elite.
The reality clearly shows that Bush had three
primary objectives in launching the invasion. First and foremost
was the transfer of large portions of the national
wealth of Iraq - and the United States - into the coffers of his
political cronies, corporate backers and family
members. (Also here.) Second was the frantic acceleration of the
long-running, bipartisan militarization of America,
which is now almost wholly dependent on war and rumors of war
to keep its heavily-mortgaged economy afloat.
Third was planting a permanent military presence in Iraq to "project
dominance" over the strategic oil lands and serve
as staging areas for further operations in regime change and political
extortion as needed. ("Nice little country you
got there, Abdul; too bad if something, like, happened to it - you savvy?

Subject: 9-11 Pentagon crash
At the WTC, the planes crashing into the buildings
generated fire supposedly hot enough to melt steel
and collapse the buildings. At the Pentagon,
when you look at the pictures of the walls where the plane hit,
you will hardly see any traces of fire. One of
the offices without a wall, has a chair with a book on it sitting there,
And I say it again: I have no reason to dismiss
any conspiracy theory no matter how bizarre, because it is
CERTAIN that the Bush administration has lied
about this event, and is protecting Osama Bin Ladin.
If they didn't want us to fill the internet with
bizarre theories about drone planes and missiles and
why the towers collapsed, they should have answered
questions under oath.

If anybody in the U.S. gives Bush the benefit

In the PNAC document, (written in 1999) they
said that Americans needed to be frightened by
a Pearl Harbor-type event (does that sound like
9-11?) so they'd be more receptive to PNAC's aims.
Do you honestly believe that three jets can crash
into New York and Washington buildings
on the same morning before jets could be scrambled?
If the Democrats had done their job, we wouldn't have this problem.
The Democrats were OK with Lee "Whitewash" Hamilton running the show
so they knew
in advance that the fix was in and they didn't love their country enough
to fight for it.
Imagine a bank robber or murderer who got to pick his judge (his uncle)
The BFEE fought the 9-11 investigations all the way, then finally allowed
to run the show and re-direct all serious questions away from those
who were guilty.
Do they want those soldiers to die?
Just six months after the Pentagon agreed to
reimburse soldiers who bought their own protective gear,
the Army has changed their minds and has now
banned the use of any body armor that is not military-issue.
In a new directive, effective immediately, the
Army said it cannot guarantee the quality of commercially
bought armor, and any soldier wearing it will
have to turn it in and have it replaced with authorized gear.
Oh, now I get it.
They want you to buy armor from a Bush crony, a probable-felon who
got a no-bid contract that
has a specific clause written into the contract that it's OK
if the equipment fails you in the field.
