The Bushes & Iran
  by Robert Parry

The historical facts - relating to Republican contacts with Iran's Islamic regime 25 years ago
- are relevant today because an underlying theme in Bush's rationale for war is that direct
negotiations with Iran are pointless. But Bush's own father may know otherwise.

The evidence is now persuasive that George H.W. Bush participated in negotiations with Iran's
radical regime in 1980, behind Carter's back, with the goal of arranging for 52 American hostages
to be released after Bush and Reagan were sworn in.

In exchange, the Republicans agreed to let Iran obtain U.S.-manufactured military supplies through Israel.
The Iranians kept their word, releasing the hostages immediately upon Reagan's swearing-in on Jan. 20, 1981.

Over the next few years, the Republican-Israel-Iran weapons pipeline operated mostly in secret,
only exploding into public view with the Iran-Contra scandal in late 1986. Even then, the Reagan-Bush team
was able to limit congressional and other investigations, keeping the full history - and the 1980 chapter
- hidden from the American people.

Upon taking office on Jan. 20, 2001, George W. Bush walled up the history even more by issuing
an executive order blocking the scheduled declassification of records from the Reagan-Bush years.
After 9/11, W added more bricks to the wall by giving Presidents, Vice Presidents and their heirs
power over releasing documents.

I've said it before - take Reagan's name off everything until Bush releases his records.
Why should we honor a president whose actions can't see the light of day?

Subject: McCain caves in on torture

John McCain has caved into Bush yet again on the only issue that still had meaning for him.
McCain who was a prisoner of war has now caved into Bush's plan to allow the CIA to
torture prisoners in secret prisons in countries that allow torture. The Republicans think that
if you tamper with the definition of torture then it makes it not torture. However - if Bush doesn't
intend to torture then why do you need secret prisons in countries that allow torture to do it?

I am more troubled by Americans lowering our standards to the same level as the terrorists.
There is now no moral difference between us and them.
We are both a society of barbarians who practice the methods of Hitler.

This isn't going to save any American lives. It's going to cost American lives because more people
around the world we hate Americans for our barbarism. This is so outrageous that it will even cause
Americans to hate Americans.

This is no longer my country anymore.
The America I remember would never legalize torture.

Marc Perkel
San Bruno, CA

The minute I heard, "a compromise has been reached," I knew McCain caved in.

CIA "Refused to Operate" Secret Jails


Bush had to empty his secret prisons and transfer terror suspects to the Gitmo in part because
CIA interrogators had refused to carry out further interrogations and run the secret facilities,
according to former CIA officials and people close to the programme.  They said the CIA
interrogators' refusal was a factor in forcing Bush to act earlier than it might have wished.t

Go figure.
Bush is so eager to torture even the CIA draws a line.

Subject: taxes

Dear very liberal BartCop,

You've already stubbed your toe - but maybe you're new here...

I just had one of your compadres tell me that GW has no good ideas.
How about the tax cuts?

JFK did the same thing, and no one complained.
Bill said he was going to do the same thing and no one complained.

So GW has a good idea but no?

 Grimgold (hated Conservative Republican)

Dude, you're not serious, are you?

Trust me - YOU didn't get a tax cut. The super-rich did.
The people rolling in extra millions got more extra millions from you and me.

Gee, do you feel sad for the oil companies, too?
Exxon only made $25 billion last year - and you helped pay for it.

Yes, JFK cut taxes for everyone by a third.
Clinton cut taxes for the little people.

Bush bankrupted the Treasury and is now borrowing money from the ChiComs
(thought you guys hated them) and the Saudi Royal Family to give the super-rich more.

For this to be possible, Bush has to raise our taxes or cut services.

When he cuts services, we will have:

-Fewer meat and poultry inspectors.

-Less paint on our highways.

-Fewer airline inspections.

-Less firefighting equipment.

-Fewer cops, fewer cop cars, fewer helicopters.

-Roads repaired less often.

-Bridges and railroad tressles inspected fewer times each year.

-Fewer stoplights and yield signs.

-Fewer restrictions on used cars sales and door-to-door scams.

-Fewer air-traffic controllers.

-A smaller military.

-Fewer people to answer the phones at Social Security,
 Medicaid, Medicare and Mental Health Centers.

-Fewer judges, fewer prosecutors, less jail space.

-Less zoning enforcement, allowing strip clubs near schools.

-Fewer medical examiners, fewer detectives working homicides.

-Less flood planning, fewer bridges, fewer 911 operators.

-Fewer bomb-sniffing dogs at the airport.

-Fewer, older model black boxes on airplanes.

The list goes on and on.

Just how much less government can we afford?

Bush torture 'worse than Saddam'
  saw it on the BBC


Torture may be worse now in Iraq than under Saddam, the UN's chief anti-torture expert says.

Manfred Nowak said the situation in Iraq was "out of control", with abuses being committed
by security forces, militia groups and anti-US insurgents.  Bodies found in the Baghdad morgue
"often bear signs of severe Gonzales", said the human rights office of the UN in a report.

Bush to Pakistan: We'll bomb you to Stone Age


Pervez Musharraf , the President of Pakistan, claimed last night that Bush threatened to bomb
his country "into the Stone Age " if it did not co-operate with the US after 9/11, sharply increasing
tensions between the US and one of its closest allies in the war on terrorism. Musharraf, who will
meet with Bush today, said the threat was made by Richard Armitage in the days after 9-11
and was issued to the Pakistani intelligence director.

This gives credibility to the story that Bush told the Taliban before 9-11,
"We want our pipepline there and you can get paid with a carpet of gold or a carpet of bombs,"
and when they said no to his blackmail, they knew their regime was lost so Osama planned 9-11.

Bush has been quoting Osama lately, but he never quotes Osama saying the reason for 9-11
was the BFEE putting troops on their sacred (Oh please) land.

The American whore press won't tell you why we're at war.
The American whore press loves war - it sells papers and TV commercials.
Rating for CNN and FOX went up 40 percent when the war started.
They don't care how many US troops are murdered - they want that extra cash.

You should listen to this interview with Bill Clinton, Bart.
He says we might need to torture someone if we knew he was OBL's #2 man
and we knew something big (like another 9-11) was going to happen within 3 days.

He suggests presidential finding and/or after-the-fact permission from the FISA court.
I couldn't believe he was on the radio in my car talking the Bartcop platform.
Keep up the good fight.

Monkey Goes Postal


It has nothing to do with the Geneva Conventions, and it has even less to do with terrorism.
This is all about one sick and twisted sadist named George W Bush. This guy has always been
in love with torture - it's an important part of his psychological history. He needs to have that
kind of demeaning power over other human beings - it makes him feel more powerful and in
control of his own life. This isn't about making our country safer - it's about making him feel safer
in his own weak and degenerate mind. It's about Bush's psychological need to feel in control,
and that's why he's so emotional about it, because he feels as if he's being castrated. Bush's love
affair with torture isn't something that began after 9-11, or when he was appointed president.
It began when he was a still a small boy, and began inserting firecrackers into frogs to blow them up.
(I guess they weren't listed in the Geneva Conventions either.)

Who was it said, "Keep your friends close, and your ememies closer"?

It was Don Corleone, among others.

This deprives the repuglicans of their "Hate Bush" smear.
 Mike C

And it gives the ultra-lefties something to smear the Clintons with.
They don't want to hear the Clinton's name - it makes steam come from their heads.

If Hillary flamed Bush's ass with harsh anti-war rhetoric, would that make them happy?
Or would they ignore it and change the reason they hate her and continue on?

Subject: Chavez and Pelosi

Bart, I'm with you 100%.

Yesterday, I heard Pelosi on Ed Schultz describing Chavez's remarks as "terrible".  I'm thinking,

1) go inspect some voting machines, asshole, and
2) how many people have Bush described as "evil"?

Chavez was funny AND accurate.
"Welcome to Hell. What's your pleasure: Water boarding or white phosphorus?"

John F

P.S: Remember, Bush strummed a guitar and ate cake with John McCain
       while grandmothers in New Orleans drowned  in their attics.
       Is that the epitome of evil, or what?

What will it take to get the Democrats to stop coming to Bush's rescue?

It would be so easy to say, "What Chavez did wasn't polite, but he's angry with the way
Bush invades and tortures and jails anyone he wants to with no accountability to anyone."

Why can't they just speak the damn truth?

       "We'll fight for this president, but not our constituents!"

We let Kissyface go because he's no longer a Democrat, not even by name.

Hostage to Iran Again?
  by Clinton-hater Maureen Dowd


W. has now put so many bad actors in the terror stew - some of whom hate each other - and has
justified so many sketchy programs under the war-on-terror rubric, that the word "terror" is losing
all meaning and just becoming a marketing slogan. Even Peggy Noonan says that W. can be
"a historical drama queen." If our pursuit of terrorists who harmed us and want to hurt us again gets
too diffuse, it's pointless, counterproductive and endless. The president's refusal to understand what's
at stake in the torture debate is itself a kind of torture for Americans who don't want our moral power
- and our pursuit of Al Qaeda  - diluted.

I agree with him.
When she was made minority leader, the first thing she did was
go on the Sunday morning shows and kiss W's ass.

I wrote her a burn-before-reading email about that.
Got back a staff reply of boilerplate and blandness.
Makes me glad she isn't my Congress person, though mine is just as bad.
Bloody mugwumps.

Pelosi and Reid are terrible.
They are weak, they are stupid and this is life and death.
Why are they in leadership positions?

Reid speaks up now & then, but he always apologizes the next day.
Pelosi just kisses Bush's ass and saves the time.

Let me get this straight...

Bush invades Iraq, kills tens of thousands of locals and 2700 soldiers
and the American whore press covers up for him and hides his crimes.
But Hugo Chavez calls Bush "the Devil" and he's "an unstable crackpot?"

Speaking is worse than, say, 50,000 death women and children?
Nancy Pelosi came running to Bush's rescue, calling the truth-teller, "a thug."

Why is Nancy Pelosi fighting for their team?
She didn't have to endorse what Chavez said, but she could've said,
"Bush's military aggression has caused hatred all around the world."

That's a fact - she can't get in trouble for saying the obvious, but no,
she thinks the top House Democrat should run to the bully's defense.
No doubt, Harry Reid ran to Bush's defense, too.

Just a few years ago, Jesse Helms (Is he in Hell yet?) said "Clinton better not
come to Carolina without bodyguards because the troops might want to kill him."

The military hated Clinton because he never sent a man into battle who didn't come home.
They LOVE Bush for lying 2700 of them into their graves.   Why can't they think better?

Did the GOP side with Clinton and condemn Helms?
No - they stick together because they want to win.

Democrats wouldn't stick together if they fell into a vat of molasses.

Walking in a Harlem street, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez told some folk:
"Bush is an alcoholic, a sick man with a lot of hang-ups."

"He doesn't know anything about politics, he got there because of Daddy."

Subject: the problem


Bart, She is SO part of the problem, it is confusing to see you applaud her front-runner-ness.

I personally do NOT think A SINGLE Democrat in the Senate is worthy of the next Presidential
nomination, not even Feingold or Boxer deserve to be on the ticket, they could raise alot more
hell than they are, but won't do it.

As with Clinton in '92, that means we have to look elsewhere.   But of course Biden, lieberman,
schumer, and all the other "ESTABLISHMENT" Dems. sit there in the Senate like a ROADBLOCK
to 'small-d' democracy,  they will probably DROWN OUT any outside-the-beltway candidates
for pres. nomination in '08.

Well, it (DC Demorats sabotaging a fighting candidate in '08) will just be a reversion to
America's historical  roots...  CHATTEL SLAVERY under the banner "liberty and freedom."



Dude, you don't have enough passion...

Seriously, all I want to do is break the GOP winning streak.
We're in the situation we're in.
Making a priority out of, "Things should be diffrent," hurts us because their
only priority is winning and they're busy setting the planet on fire when they win
We have to put the fire out first.

I'm voting for the candidate most likely to beat Bush.
Any other vote gets you a Christmas card from Karl Rove.

Betty Bowers vs Ann Coulter


In Godless, Miss (oh, how it pains me to refer to that serially-rejected spinster as "Miss,")
Coulter turns her shrill furnace of brayed invective, fueled by a bottomless quarry of prickly
psychological damage, at the most despicable people in the world.  No, not the maniacal
murderers who flew planes into the WTC towers, but the blameless Americans who had their
flesh burned off of their bodies in those buildings -- and the inconsolable spouses they left behind.
