"USA Today better hire good lawyers. Remember
that Bush has vowed to use espionage
statutes to prosecute reporters who
report on leaked "national security" issues.
Spying on citizens and prosecuting
reporters -- that's so Soviet."
Joe Sudbay, Link
by Robert Parry as seen on consortiumnews.com
Bush's warrantless phone data collection may
not only violate the U.S. Constitution but expend so much
money and manpower that America is made less
safe - by diverting resources away from more practical steps,
like inspecting cargo and hiring translators.
Yet, because the operation is wrapped in layers
and layers of secrecy - based on the dubious argument that
al-Qaeda might not realize it's being spied on
- the public doesn't know how much the project costs,
who's getting contracts and whether it does any
So far, however, what administration officials
and computer experts have been willing to describe shouldn't give
Americans much confidence that their trade-off
of Fourth Amendment freedoms for a little extra safety is a good deal.
The project's designers say the NSA's trillions
of phone records from calls made by some 200 million Americans
is intended to seek out "patterns" from conversations
involving alleged terrorists and then to apply the digital outline
to the stockpiled records
Bart's opinion: I have long
suspected that Bush made Osama a deal:
"Don't attack the US mainland and we won't
come after you."
This would allow Bush to steal hundreds of billions of dollars while
bringing in dozens of friends, contributors and
defense contractors to split up America's wealth in super-secrecy.
If ever pressed for details about the missing trillions,
all Bush has to say is, "America has not been
attacked since 9-11," and it's a win-win for the terrorist teams.
Any other scenario would have to say Al Qaeda is incapable
of stealing a gasoline truck and plowing it into
Radio City Music Hall or the Mall of America or the gates
to Disney World, which could paralyze American.
(Would you take your kids to those three places after Al Qaeda bombed
Instead of doing that, they'd rather do a suicide attack in Tikrit and
kill six local cops?
The only logical explanation is Al Qaeda chooses
not to attack us - and what would explain that?
Bush stays in power, with an excuse to steal for another 3 years
and Osama stays free to recruit thousands more wacko suiciders.
Nothing else comes close to explaining it.

USA Today turns on Der Monkey?
Bush told the public Thursday in a brief appearance
aimed at quelling the instant outrage provoked by the story.
He assured Americans that their civil liberties
were being "fiercely protected" and that the government was
"not mining or trolling through the personal
lives of millions of innocent Americans."
In other words, never mind appearances. Trust
Well, that is not all it means.
Nor can the president's promise to protect privacy
be reliably kept.
The fact that the government is trying to track
(but not wiretap) every call you make and every call you receive
— at home or on your cellphone is, to say the
It means that your phone company (if you are a
customer of AT&T, BellSouth or Verizon) tossed your privacy
to the wind and collaborated with this extraordinary
intrusion, and that it did so secretly and without following any court
That is, unless you're lucky enough to be served
by Qwest, the one major phone company that resisted government pressure.
The networks are ignoring this
Rove told Bush that he will be indicted and will
resign when Fitz announces the charges against him
Fitzgerald told Rove that he has 24 hours to
get his affairs in order.
It was still unknown Saturday whether Fitzgerald
charged Rove with a more serious obstruction of justice charge.
It appeared very likely that an obstruction charge
against Rove would be included.
"I'll tell - Bush knew everything - He was in the loop!"
Again, I'm going to ask the Democrats to publicly tell Bush that he
pardon his co-conspirators, but only after the trial - but they don't
They're going to act like eunuch sheep and then be "disappointed" in
when he buries the truth before the scope of their crimes becomes clear.
"It's not our place to interfere with King George!"

The administration's reassurance about the phone
number record business is crap.
All the bad guys have to do is use disposable
Dude, good point.
Too bad the Democrats can't be convinced to point that out.

Bush ending up like his failed father
One Bush did it by staying out of Baghdad, raising
taxes and driving down the deficit. The other Bush
did it by going into Baghdad, cutting taxes and
driving up the deficit. But, perhaps inevitably, the father and son
ended up in an Oedipal tango at the same spot:
31 percent. After trying not to emulate his father's presidency
in any way, W. emulated it in the worst possible
way. He came out of a conflict with Saddam as a towering
figure with soaring approval ratings and ended
up as a shrunken figure with scalding approval ratings."

"As democracy is perfected, the office of

Bush at 29 Percent
Bush's job-approval rating has fallen to its
lowest mark of his presidency, according to Harris poll.
29% think Mr. Bush is doing an "excellent or
pretty good" job as president, down from 35% in April.
Roughly one-quarter of U.S. adults say "things
in the country are going in the right direction,"
while 69% say "things have pretty seriously gotten
off on the wrong track."
No wonder the GOP is worried about November..
Do the Democrats realize Bush is vulnerable now?

To my mind there is no difference between the
two parties. I suspect we have a monster with two heads, installed by
a slow moving coup, running our government.
All the current players are tainted by association with this monster.
In order to have a Constitutional government,
we need to go back to the Constitution and re-form our government...
Thanks for your response.
Sue, I don't know anyone who disagrees with you, but saying, "If

Recruiter: We want gays - maybe
All you non-patriotic gays need not apply
A recruiter for the Army responded with an email
to a civilian comment by denying that gay linguists
were ever discharged from the military and asserting
that the claim was a propaganda effort to paint
Arab individuals as gay. In the same email
the recruiter encouraged "patriotic gays" to enlist in the Army.
"The recruiter does not speak for
the United States Army," Major Nathan Banks, an Army Spokesman.
The emails from the recruiter were sent from
his US military email account.
But wait, isn't it legal for recruiters to lie
to get stupid kids to sign up?
Aren't they free to promise you anything, only to screw you
once you're ensnared?

Say 9-11 Report is Fiction
Nobody believes the 'Official" version
Why anyone would believe this administration's
explanation of Sept. 11 is beyond me. These people have
lied about pretty much everything else. Every
single pretense for their invasion of Iraq has been shown to be false,
amounting to another painstakingly constructed
alternate reality. In fact, we are rapidly approaching a day of
particularly twisted irony--later this year,
the American death toll in Bush's irrelevant (to Sept. 11, anyway)
and morally indefensible war will surpass that
of Sept. 11 itself.
But, thankfully, Bush's reality dam is breaking.
A 2004 Zogby poll showed that half of New Yorkers
believe our government was complicit in 9-11.
Apparently, they know a bit more about what went
on in their city that day than the rest of us. In Canada,
where their media provides them with something
approximating news, the number rises to 63 percent.

Whoring for Bush
NBC's Lisa Myers and CNN's David Ensor both asserted
that data collected by the NSA through a
just-exposed program include only "phone calls
made and received, but not customers' names and addresses."
But they failed to inform viewers about a key
point made by USA Today, which broke the story -- that the
NSA can easily obtain this information through
Another point - I saw a cryptographer (maybe) on CNN saying every
you can buy has already been broken by the NSA.

that would be OK with the GOP because, "If
you're not doing anything wrong, why complain?"

In a new poll comparing the Giggling Murder Monkey
to a real president,
a strong majority of respondents said Clinton
outperformed Bush on a host of issues.
Respondents favored Clinton by greater than 2-to-1
margins when asked who did a better job at handling
the economy (Clinton 62, Monkey 26) and solving
the problems of ordinary Americans (Clinton 62, Bush 25).
Clinton also beat Bush on "more honest as president"
and "handling natiponal security."
Clinton was impeached in 1998 over an extramarital
affair while Bush's lies killed 2500 soldiers.
Maybe that poll isn't very fair to Bush.

"These sorts of things are going to upset people,
but the truth can be very upsetting," said Brookland-Cayce
High School teacher Winston McCuen. That truth,
according to McCuen, is that black people are inferior to whites.
"Intellectually, yes they are," said McCuen. "This
has been confirmed over and over, and this is a generalization.
Again, there are some blacks who are more intelligent
than individual whites. But as a rule, that is true.

DNA confirmed it The first documented case
of a hybrid grizzly-polar bear in the wild.
Tracker Roger Kuptana suspected the hunter he

Territorial officials did a DNA test and confirmed
that the hybrid was born of a polar mother and grizzly father.
