Colbert & the Courtier Press
  by Robert Parry  as seen on  consortiumnews.com


Cohen's column is another sign of what's terribly wrong with the U.S. news media: With few exceptions, 
the Washington press corps has failed to hold Bush and his top advisers accountable for their long record 
of deception and for actions that have violated U.S. constitutional principles and American moral standards.

Over the past several years, as Bush asserted unlimited presidential powers and implemented policies that 
have led the United States into the business of torture and an unprovoked war in Iraq, Washington journalists
mostly stayed on the sidelines or actively assisted the administration, often wrapping its extraordinary actions 
in a cloak of normality designed more to calm than alert the public. At such a dangerous moment, when a 
government is committing crimes of state, politeness is not necessarily a virtue.

Only the likes of Richard Cohen could see Bush as the victim and Colbert as the bully.

As always, you should take the time to read Parry's entire column.

Rumsfeld Called On Lies

 Linkand Video

Speaking in Atlanta today, Rumsfeld was sharply questioned about his pre-war claims about WMD in Iraq.
An audience member confronted Rumsfeld with his 2003 claim about WMD, "We know where they are."
Rumsfeld falsely claimed he never said it. The audience member then read Rumsfeld's quote back to him,
leaving the defense secretary speechless

Friday morning, even whore CNN is running the clip of Rummy saying, 
"I never said we knew where the WMDs were,"
  and then running the clip of Rummy saying, 
"The WMDs are in Tikrit, and North, South, East & West of Baghdad."

When Clinton sorta lied about sex, the whore media (and some back-stabbing Democrats) demanded he be strung up.
When these bastards lie 2410 soldiers into their graves, we're told, "Now's not the time to play the blame game."

Bottom Line: America's whore media is for sale and the GOP has more money.


Ridicule and contempt 
 King George is Killing Free Speech


The most scathing public critique of Bush and the complicity of a craven press corps was delivered at the 
WHCA dinner by a comedian. Bush was reported afterwards to be seething, while the press corps responded 
with stone-cold silence. In many of their reports of the event they airbrushed out the joker.

Stephen Colbert performed within 10 yards of Bush's hostile stare and before 2,600 members of the press and their guests. 
After his mock praise of Bush as a rock against reality, Colbert censured the press by flattering its misfeasance. "Over the 
last five years you people were so good - over tax cuts, WMD intelligence, the effect of global warming. We Americans 
didn't want to know, and you had the courtesy not to try to find out ... Here's how it works: the president makes decisions... 
The press secretary announces those decisions, and you people of the press type those decisions down. Make, announce, type. 
Just put 'em through a spellcheck and go home ... Write that novel you got kicking around in your head. You know, the one 
about the intrepid Washington reporter with the courage to stand up to the administration. You know - fiction!".

This story keeps growing.
Colbert exposed the Murder Monkey and his fawning whore press and they're not happy about it.


Lapdog Bastards


Thirteen days before he announced United States-led coalition forces had begun the war to "disarm Iraq, 
to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger," Bush on the evening of March 6, 2003, 
strolled into the East Room for a rare press conference -- just his eighth since taking office. 

The press corps's barely-there performance that night, as reporters quietly melted into the scenery, coming at 
such a crucial moment in time remains an industry-wide embarrassment. Laying out the reasons for war, 
Bush that night mentioned al-Qaida 9-11 thirteen times in less than an hour, yet not a single journalist challenged 
the presumed connection Bush was making between al-Qaida and Iraq, despite the fact that intelligence sources 
had publicly questioned any such association. And during the Q&A session, nobody bothered to ask Bush about 
Osama, whom Bush had vowed to capture. Follow-up questions were nonexistent, which only encouraged Bush 
to give answers to questions he was not asked.

Thank you, again, Stephen Colbert, for calling these cowards out.


Subject: Bird Flu panic

Bart, you wrote:

> Or will the BFEE makes billions from that disaster, too?
> Is that the name of the game?
> The worse things get, the money money they can steal?

The name of the game is fear.
This administration governs by fear - it uses these terror tactics to distract the American people
from what they're really up to: putting into action the PNAC agenda of global economic/political
domination. And if they can steal a few billion extra bucks while they're at itů why not?

We all know the drill by now. George's ratings are in the garbage and he'll do anything - ANYTHING
- to ensure a neo-con hold on Washington. Just like he used 9/11 for his own purposes, he will create
another one (Iran? Bird flu?) to create panic before the November '06 elections.

When I heard the phrase "travel restrictions" used in describing W's plan for an eventual pandemic,
I thought to myself, Oh brother! Here it comes! Marshall law can't be far behind.

Your pal,



"George Packer captured the moral dimension of our current national predicament.
He describes Bush's strategy as "muddling through the rest of his Presidency, without being forced 
to admit defeat, until January of 2009, when the war will become a new President's problem." 
This really is the issue. Brazen it out, burn off men and money, not admit there's any real problem 
and then pass it off on the next guy who will take the blame. The president lacks the courage to 
change course. The whole country is paralyzed by his cowardice." 
     -- Josh Marshall,    Link

Will history books praise Bush as the wise and brave war president who got everything right?

Don't Worry about Bird Flu


This totally new, virulent but unknown and unexpected disease - spread around the world almost instantly 
- killed a total of 774 people. Thousands more people die from diseases like malaria and dengue fever every year.

Unlike SARS and the Spanish flu, the world now expects a disastrous, world-wide influenza pandemic. 
So everybody's watching for it. The moment someone catches the H5N1 virus from a bird, they're isolated. 
Birds carrying the virus are being culled in the millions - further reducing the chances of it mutating into 
something that can jump from human to human.

However, as the British Medical Journal put it in its October 29 issue:

"The lack of sustained human-to-human transmission suggested that this H5N1 virus does not currently have 
the capacity to cause a human pandemic," adding that the warnings are entirely a theoretical speculation. 

Still, with Bush in charge, one needs to be afraid.

Dude, I have a bad feeling about this one.
They say if everything goes wrong, up to 1/3 of us will die.

Considering what I have to gain by being prepared, 
divided by what I have to lose by not being prepared,

...the smart money is on being prepared.


Blood Pact 
 by Chris Floyd, as seen on smirkingchimp.com


To put it simply, America must have unfettered access to Persian Gulf oil in order to maintain the infrastructure
of its economy - indeed of its entire society, which is based on the availability of cheap gasoline and other 
petroleum-based products. In the coming decades of oil scarcity, the vast reserves in the Middle East will be 
even more crucial. The Bush Administration estimates that Iraq's current reserves, when fully developed, 
could reach as high as 220 billion barrels; if the still unexplored territories of its western wasteland are counted, 
this figure could top 300 billion - far surpassing the reserves of Saudi Arabia, as Paul William Roberts reports 
in his book, A War Against Truth.  What's more, Iraqi oil is easy to extract - hence remarkably profitable.

Yet military families are still eager to hand their children over to Bush.
I can't understand that.

Subject: Kristol recommended Colbert

Bart, recently Stephen had Bill Kristol on his show and Bill said Stephen
should appreciate the fact that he was the one recommending Stephen for the gig!
And Stephen agreed and thanked him on air!

Hammer on!!
DR Dolph

Bill Kristol, like Pat Buchanan, is not Bush's biggest fan.


Battered Congress Syndrome


It's strikingly like those of "battered women's syndrome," only the abusive partner is the Bush administration. 

I know. You're thinking, "Come on. Aren't we talking about consenting Republicans here? 
Sure, there's an occasional spat between Congress and the White House, but it's just a minor domestic dispute. 
We shouldn't interfere." But that trivializes both the abuse and its broader societal ramifications.

The Most High Rev. Jim

Dude, avoiding more time in a Mexican jail is really, really high on my list of things to do.
Recently, my friend of 35 years (and cellmate) Carl was in town for a few days.
We talked about that night in Mexico - we remember things differently, which is really interesting.

Carl dealt No Limit Texas Hold'Em at Binion's Horseshoe (where it was born) for 28 years.
He told me stories about all the big poker players.

He said Phil-the-Brat Hellmuth dealt poker with him at the Trop for years. (details not guaranteed)
He told me lots of killer, inside and behind-the-scenes personal poker stories that, in the end,
might allow me to write off the hamburger dinner that we cooked for him that one night :)

Why so Defensive?


I continue to mull why the mainstream press reacted so negatively to Colbert's performance. 
It's worth looking at where Colbert was coming from. His show, of course, is a spin-off from 
Jon Stewart's Daily Show. Both Colbert and Stewart have risen to superstar status largely by 
calling bullshit on the Bush administration -- and on the press corps that transmits said bullshit
without the appropriate skepticism or irony.


Subject: Kerry

Kerry got on with his life.  Too bad you can't.
You are like Leno still making Monica jokes.

I got cash money that says you can't back that up.
That story was written because Kerry is talking about screwing up our future - again.
Forgive me if I'm tired of throwing the election to the retarded murder monkey.

Are you afraid to deal with what is Kerry is saying, or are you afraid to lose some stupid bit.

I don't hear Kerry - nobody does.
Kerry could set his hair on fire and nobody would listen to him.
Kerry is damaged goods - severely damaged.
Kerry's the guy who was accused of stealing his Purple Hearts with self-inflicted war wounds,
and since he never bothered to deny it, he became the cowardly thief they said he was.

I'm not sure what "bit" I'd lose if Kerry was taken seriously, but it doesn't matter.

Yeah, we all get it.  Dems are Pussies, it was funny the first million times.

Obviously, the message hasn't been delivered.
They still act like scared, retarded pussies after all the years of losing thru cowardice and inaction.

Well, dumbfuck, they are the only hope now.

Yeah, that's why I'm betting on the GOP's half-sane wing to save us.

You have to understand - even if the Democrats win 100 Senate seats and 435 in the House,
they're still the weakest bunch of sacless wonders who claimed to care about the little guy.
They can come back from this, but they can't change their past.

And computer wimps that sit on their ass and do nothing are a waste of time.

Oh, and Skeeters2525@aol.com's contribution to the battle so far has been what?
Sending snot-grams to a lefty who's urging the Democrats to stand up and fight back?

Get a life.  Kerry has.

I want John to have a long, happy life.
But I don't want his political cowardice to hurt America any more.

Subject: Screw the Bird Flu

Do you realize that the "regular" flu kills over 35,000 Americans EVERY YEAR?
And these government douchebags are whipping the population into a frenzy over bird flu,
a disease which has killed roughly 125 people in the entire world ver a 7 year period?

Stop falling for bird flu nonsense and demand enough vaccine next winter for the entire population
to protect us against a disease which strikes millions of us and kills 35,000 Americans a year.

Dude, I hope you're right.

 Eddie, good question,
 Bush can't hardly sink much lower.


Are you ready for $5 gas?
 Bush is working to make that happen


Tight petroleum supplies amid soaring demand (and a crooked, oily president) could drive 
crude oil prices above $100 a barrel by this winter, energy experts warned yesterday.
That could translate into $5 gas and spike home heating oil an additional 30%, analysts said.

Iran's deputy oil minister fueled the paranoia yesterday by predicting that crude could hit $100 
a barrel by the end of the year - $26 above even yesterday's near-record price.

"There's so much that could go wrong right now," said Phil Flynn, an energy analyst. 
"This is the scariest time we've seen in oil in a long period of time."

"Coverage of Bush's skit entered the 24-hour news cycle with little or no mention of Colbert's 
scathing monologue. This isn't surprising. Mr. Colbert indicted the D.C. media establishment 
for mindless complacency, as well. To mention Mr. Colbert's criticism of the president would 
also have meant examining his charge of media bungling.  Hacks and politicians were scandalized 
by his honesty and "bad manners."...What did they expect Mr. Colbert to do? It was like hiring 
George Carlin for his street cred, but hoping he'd turn out to be more like Yakov Smirnoff."

Subject: Patterns of Force

Hey Bart,

Regarding the title of Volume 1757, "Patterns of Force".
Are you a Star Trek fan?  (I think you are, having read some past volumes). 

The "Patterns of Force" episode from the original Star Trek show involved a Starfleet captain who went bonkers, 
traveled to an alien planet, and set up his own "government" based on Hitler's Third Reich - complete with sieg heils
and Nazi uniforms!  Captain Kirk beams down to this planet and has to figure out a way to reason with this nutjob, 
who has brainwashed the entire planet's population with his Nazi ideology.  In the end, the basket case captain has 
to be killed so that the planet's population can think on its own again.

So many analogies to make, so little time.
Keep up the good work.
