Quote of the Day

"A President has got to be able to say to the 
  American people, 'diplomacy didn't work.' " 
    -- Dubya, trying to explain Iran,  Link

 Bush has the diplomatic skilla of  a 
 masked mugger holding a butter knife.

In Today's Tequila Treehouse...
The Truth Matters! 
Geronimo's Skull
200,000 U.S. Guns 
Murdoch & Clinton 
Is Hillary Worth it? 
40% is Malpractice 
Wooing the Right 
Bush Spys Domestic 
Louise Redknapp 





"In the Bird Flu TV movie, America's competent (fictional) leaders were incapable of doing
anything to stop an impending 300 million dead worldwide (give or take 1.5 million dead in
the US alone) and the entire dissolution of the American economy and society as we know it.
In the real world, add Bush to the mix, and we're basically dead."
    -- John Aravosis,  Link


Hey, Democrats, the Truth Matters!
  by Robert Parry  as seen on  consortiumnews.com


My book, Secrecy & Privilege, opens with a scene in spring 1994 when a guest at a White House social event
asks Bill Clinton why his administration didn't pursue unresolved scandals from the Reagan-Bush era, such as the
Iraqgate secret support for Saddam Hussein's government and clandestine arms shipments to Iran.

Clinton responds to the questions from the guest, documentary filmmaker Stuart Sender, by saying, in effect,
that those historical questions had to take a back seat to Clinton's domestic agenda and his desire for greater
bipartisanship with the Republicans.

Clinton "didn't feel that it was a good idea to pursue these investigations because he was going to have to work with
these people," Sender told me. "He was going to try to work with these guys, compromise, build working relationships."

Clinton's relatively low regard for the value of truth and accountability is relevant again today because other centrist
Democrats are urging their party to give George W. Bush's administration a similar pass if the Democrats win one
or both houses of Congress.

"Deadlines are important. Deadlines help people understand there's finality."
   -- Dubya, either explaining his May 15 deadline for his failed Medicare plan or
       why he won't put 'finality' on his bloody debacle in Iraq,  Link


Did Hitler's Partner Steal Geronimo's Skull?


A Yale historian has uncovered a 1918 letter that seems to lend validity to the lore that Yale's ultra-secret
Skull and Bones society swiped the skull of American Indian leader Geronimo. The letter, written by one
member of Skull and Bones to another, purports that the skull and some of the Indian leader's remains were
spirited from his burial plot in Fort Sill, Okla., to a stone tomb in New Haven that serves as the club's HQ.
According to Skull and Bones legend, members -- including Prescott Bush -- dug up Geronimo's grave
when some Army volunteers from Yale were stationed at the fort during World War I. Geronimo died in 1909.

I saw Glenn Beck laughing about this late Wednesday night on CNN headlines News.
(I didn't know they gave that racist bastard an hour - did you?)

He was laughing at the "big crimes" of Prescott Bush, stealing Geronimo's skull.
Would he be laughing if they stole Lincoln's skull?   Or Robert E Lee's skull?

Screw the Indians, right Mr. Beck?
They're just red negroes, so their feeling don't count, right, Mr Beck?


200,000 U.S. Guns Given to Al Qaeda?


Some 200,000 guns the US sent to Iraqi security forces may have been smuggled to terrorists,
it was feared yesterday.  The 99-tonne cache of AK47s was to have been secretly flown out from
a US base in Bosnia. But the four planeloads of arms have vanished.

Orders for the deal to go ahead were given by the US Department of Defense.
But the work was contracted out via a complex web of private arms traders  Bush contributors.

It follows a separate probe claiming that thousands of guns meant for Iraq's army instead went to al-Qaeda

Amnesty spokesman Mike Blakemore said: "It's unbelievable that no one can account for 200,000 assault rifles.
If these weapons have gone missing it's a terrifying prospect." American defence chiefs hired a US firm to take
the guns, from the 90s Bosnian war, to Iraq.

Knowing Bush, they didn't give guns to Zarqawi - they would've sold them.
The $140,000M gravy train stops if peace breaks out.
Remember, our military failed to secure 2000 tons of C4, that fell into their hands.


Subject: Molly Ivins

You might disagree with her about Hillary
but you have to admit that she has the BFEE down.

Our side is lucky to have her.
Dave in Cincinnati

Dave, I agree, but I wish Molly voted Democrat.



"Today, the CIA is crawling with liberals. The military is crawling with liberals. The Bush administration
itself is nothing but a bunch of liberals as must be the GOP congress since they signed off on everything
Bush has proposed. The media are, needless to say, nothing but squishy liberals. The country is going to
hell in a handbasket. The president and the congress and all their policies are dramatically unpopular.
This, then, is just further proof of the failure of liberalism."
    -- digby, doing his best vulgar Pigboy impression, Link


What's in a Murdoch-Clinton Alliance?


Yet the developing relationship between Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Murdoch - who has built an empire in part
on the strength of media outlets such as Fox News and The New York Post that delight in skewering the
Clintons - has drawn special attention, perplexing some political analysts and infuriating some liberals already
suspicious of Mrs. Clinton's centrist positioning. Although she is ostensibly raising money for her re-election
to the Senate this year, she is widely considered to be laying the groundwork for a presidential bid in 2008.

"The brazenness of this move is almost too much to stomach," wrote David Sirota on his blog. "Here you have
a leading Democratic U.S. senator engaging in a 'mating ritual' with the head of the news network that has overtly
worked to systematically destroy both the Democratic Party and her own husband's administration."

Murdoch, gave a similar fund-raiser for Chuck Schumer in 2003, and has donated money to several Democrats.

I still don't see a reason to panic.
Does David Sirota think Hillary doesn't know what she's doing?
Did he have a cow and scream "mating ritual" when Murdoch helped Schumer?

Subject: Bartcop's Oct. 2004 prediction

Bart, you couldn't have nailed it any better.
From Bartcop.com Issue 1432, Oct. 30-31, 2004, you wrote the excerpt below.

With gasoline at nearly $3/gallon (at least in my area) and 2,428 dead as of May 10, 2006,
your graph below from more than a year and a half ago puts any psychic to shame:

[Bartcop on Oct. 30-31, 2004]

> Perhaps the White House could provide us with a graph,
> showing a price-per-barrel ratio to dead American heroes.
> Think about it - what if...?

> A gallon of gas cost $1.50, no American military dead
> A gallon of gas cost $1.75, ...we'll give you      300 dead servicemen
> A gallon of gas cost $2.25, ...we'll give you    1000 dead servicemen
> A gallon of gas cost $2.75, ...we'll give you    2000 dead servicemen
 [ INSERT:  May 2006:  A gallon of gas costs nearly $3.00...and there are 2,428 dead servicemen ]

> A gallon of gas cost $3.25, ...we'll give you    3000 dead servicemen
> A gallon of gas cost $3.75, ...we'll give you    8000 dead servicemen
> A gallon of gas cost $4.25, ...we'll give you 11,000 dead servicemen
> A gallon of gas cost $5.50, ...we'll give you 16,000 dead servicemen

> The B.F.E.E. will make extra-billions of we have enough dead soldiers.
> Do you think evil men mind others dying to make then super-rich?

> Perpetual war, guaranteed by the most brainless slug in presidential history.

> So, how many dead do we want to buy?

Sometimes it's no fun being right.

"If the party of evangelical fundamentalism is revealed as one in which several key members
are quite comfortable being bribed by booze, gambling and prostitutes, it cannot exactly help
wrench the depressed base out of growing surliness. This is not good news for the White House.
But it's surely better than having your CIA director forced to resign in "Hookergate".

Four in 10 Malpractice Cases Groundless


About 40 percent of the medical malpractice cases filed in the United States are groundless, according to
a Harvard analysis of the hotly debated issue that pits trial lawyers against doctors, with lawmakers in the middle.
Many of the lawsuits analyzed contained no evidence that a medical error was committed or that the patient
suffered any injury, the researchers reported.

The vast majority of those dubious cases were dismissed with no payout to the patient.
However, groundless lawsuits still accounted for 15 percent of the money paid out in settlements or verdicts.

I smell a rat.
These giant insurance corporations are paying settlements when there's mo evidence of injury?

Nobody believes that.
How could Hardvard uncover what the insurance invesigators missed?
People who are forced to write large checks generally turn over every rock.
Who thinks Harvard turned over more rocks than the check writers?

They're saying the billion-dollar insurance conglomerates are too eager to pay "victims?"
I smell a rat.

Subject: Hillary praising Bush


Saying that Bush is charming, has charisma and helped NY after 9-11 isn't exactly selling out to the enemy.
It is called politics I suppose the purists on our side would rather have heard her say
"George Bush is the meanest, laziest, weakest, stupid. monkey liar the world has ever known.

That would certainly do tons to help us get back the house, senate and white house...


Hey buddy, we don't tolerate sanity on this issue.
Your job is to scream and curse at me and set your hair on fire.


British Say 3 Terror Attacks Prevented
 But they can't give out any details - we must trust them


The suicide bombers who killed 52 passengers on London's transit system last year contacted
someone in Pakistan just before striking, Britain's top law enforcement official said Thursday.

Home Secretary John Reid also told the House of Commons that police and intelligence agencies
\had thwarted three attacks since the July 7 bombings, but did not say who was behind them or
where and when they were to take place.

Just like Bush, Blair's in trouble so he whips out the old, "We stopped the terrorists"claim, 
but since it would help the terrorists to explain, we'll have to take Blair's word for it.

Are the Brits as gullible as the American whore press?

NSA has massive database of Americans' phone calls
 The agency's goal is "to create a database of every call ever made..."


The National Security Agency has been secretly collecting the phone call records of
tens of millions of Americans, using data provided by AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth,
people with direct knowledge of the arrangement told USA TODAY.

The NSA program reaches into homes and businesses across the nation by amassing information
about the calls of ordinary Americans most of whom aren't suspected of any crime. This program
does not involve the NSA listening to or recording conversations. But the spy agency is using the data
to analyze calling patterns in an effort to detect terrorist activity, sources said in separate interviews.

"It's the largest database ever assembled in the world," said one person, who, like the others who
agreed to talk about the NSA's activities, declined to be identified by name or affiliation. The agency's
goal is "to create a database of every call ever made" within the nation's borders, this person added.

Bush explained, "one end of the communication must be outside the United States." As a result,
domestic call records those of calls that originate and terminate within U.S. borders were
believed to be private.  Sources, however, say that is not the case. .

First, they did this to us and didn't tell us.
When they got caught, they tried to jail the whitsle blowers and Bush swore it was
"one end of the communication must be outside the United States."
and now we find out it's actually tens of millions of calls.

Is anybody fed up?

I just caught CNN's take on it.
They must've spent a full 10 seconds on this latest Bush outrage.



"This is much bigger and wider than just 'Duke' Cunningham. All that has just not

Hillary Woos the Right


Hillary's courting of Mr Murdoch is part of a grander strategy, mirrored by statements designed to portray her as
no less pugilistic on terrorism than Mr Bush. "This shows her to be a consensus-builder, someone who's not polarising,"
Hank Sheinkopf, a Democratic party consultant, said. "The rightwing take on her has always been that she's polarising.
Certainly, there will be people on the left that may not like this relationship [with Mr Murdoch] but the fact that she
could forge it speaks well of her ability to build consensus ... To be president, you've got to win the support of white
Catholic men in the midwest. They don't tolerate shrieking and they don't tolerate polarisers.

Gee, it's almost like Hillary has the smartest political advisor in America helping her.

 Iraq pumps 2,000,000 barrels a day,
(and that was before the 2002 Halliburton Upgrade)
 times today's oil price which is $72.13 a barrel
makes $144,260,000 Bush stole just yesterday

...add to that, Iran pumps FOUR M barrels a day.

Once the sick bastard invades, that's 6 M barrels a day

Hillary Loses her Shine?


They should have been dyed-in-the-wool Hillary Clinton supporters. Two New Yorkers...whose liberal
credentials were impeccable. Abby and Cathy were pro-choice, anti-war and pro-environment...They bore
the sort of passionate dislike for President George W. Bush that is more commonly heard around European
dinner tables. But sitting at a restaurant in Greenwich Village it was not America's 43rd president that was the
subject of their scorn. It was Hillary Clinton, one time darling of American liberalism and hot favourite to be the
Democrats' presidential pick for 2008. That does not impress Abby and Cathy. They can't stand Hillary any more.

Interesting that Paul Harris of the Observer would find two women on the street who claim to hate Hillary.
Then he basically says these two women should be Hillary lovers, but they see "the truth" about her,
so they wisely have come to hate her - as you should too, if you're a good liberal.

The election is 30 months away, and the anti-Hillary machine is cranking on all 16 cylinders.
I imagine we'll see two stories a day about "why real Democrats can't stand her traitorous ass."

Doesn't that make you a little suspicious?

Odd that the last polls we saw showed Hillary 29 points ahead of whoever was Number Two,
but we don't look at the facts when there's a Clinton to be slurred.

Even you Hillary haters have to admit it would be far more likely to find pro-Hillary women in
New York because, if facts matter, her last approval rating in New York was in the high sixties.

Harris is walking past the pro-Hillary women to showcase two who don't like her.
Harris ignores the facts so he can screw with your head and get you to hate Hillary.

Don't you feel manipulated when you see that kind of horseshit?
They want you to turn on our front-runner.

Subject: I love Hillary

The more these dangerous lefties hurt her the more I love her her.
Hillary is our best candidate.
Stop hurting our best chance to rid ourselves of the last six years of hell!

I just can't take it anymore Bart. I want to WIN and Hillary IS a winner.
Why? Because unlike that wimp Kerry, she WILL NOT roll over at the first sign of trouble.
She's smarter than Kerry, has the best spouse we could hope for and we need her.

I've had enough with this bashing. She is our candidate.
Get behind her today! And if not, get out of the way.

Feel free to post my love fest for our smart moderate, Hillary Clinton.

E, the majority (vast majority) agree with you, but the minority is very loud.

When I mention that the votes are in the center, people ignore that.
When I say, "We're the party that sometimes loses 49 states," they ignore that.

People believe what they want to believe and the facts be damned.
And if you don't agree with them, they'll scream "traitor" at you, so be careful.

Subject: Ministry no fans of Bush


I recently went to see Ministry, an industrial band, on tour to support their latest release, "Rio Grande Blood".  
It has a picture of Bush imposed on an arm-spread Christ standing in a barrel of oil, B2's flying in the background.

Click  to  Order

The title track has multiple sound clips of Bush spliced together to get such gems as,
"I am a dangerous, dangerous man",  "I am a brutal dictator", and "I'm an asshole".  

Probably not your type of music, but I figured you'd get a kick out of the cover art.
Keep up the good work,
