"It is not the enemy that has us pinned down in Iraq today, it is Bush's unwillingness to admit 
his mistakes and lies.  Bush's war is this countrys largest foreign policy blunder. Now it's time 
for Congress to intervene. Bush and Cheney have taken a four year vacation from reality."

Tenet-Bush Pre-9/11 'Small Talk'
 by Robert Parry

After reaching the White House, a CIA briefer, identified as Rich B., started his presentation by saying: 
"There will be a significant terrorist attack in the coming weeks or months!"

Rich B. then displayed a chart showing "seven specific pieces of intelligence gathered over the past 24 hours, 
all of them predicting an imminent attack," Tenet wrote. The briefer presented another chart with "the more 
chilling statements we had in our possession through intelligence."

These comments included a statement by Osama bin Laden to trainees about an attack in the near future 
and a "big event" and predictions of "a stunning turn of events in the weeks ahead," Tenet wrote.
Rich B. told Rice that the attack will be "spectacular" with heavy casualties against U.S. targets.

"Attack preparations have been made," Rich B. said about al-Qaeda's plans. 
"Multiple and simultaneous attacks are possible, and they will occur with little or no warning."

Bush administration officials continued to pooh-pooh the seriousness of the al-Qaeda threat. 
Two leading neocons - Stephen Cambone and Paul Wolfowitz - suggested that the CIA 
might be falling for a disinformation campaign, Tenet wrote.

They should be impeached for that, but the Democrats sat silent while Bush appointed family friend 
Lee Whitewash Hamilton to the 9-11 Cover-Up Commission and Hamilton did his usual great job
of protecting the Bush Family Evil Empire at the expense of America's vital interests.

To this day, does anyone know who gave the order for the Air Force to stand down?

Bush passes the buck on Iraq
  by Helen Thomas


President Bush still has to learn "the buck stops here" when it comes to presidential decisions.
The "decider" and commander in chief seems to be trying to pass the buck, particularly if the war 
in Iraq implodes and he has to bring troops home from his disastrous invasion of Iraq.
The president is counting on Gen. David Petraeus and Maliki to take the fall if his troop "surge" fails.

Bush is a long way from that mirage even with a surge of troops to 160,000 by midsummer.
Bush's war of choice -- now in its fifth year -- has taken 3,368 American lives and wounded thousands 
more Americans.  The death toll for the Iraqi people is reportedly in the hundreds of thousands, 
although the Iraqi Health Ministry says it will no longer disclose the casualty figures.

That's one way to avoid bad news - just stop releasing it.

Subject: why they lie


I think I understnad why the BFEE lies literally about everything, even when the truth supports them.
I believe it to actually be part of their political strategy: They know is that they cannot control the truth,
but they believe they can control the lie. I think it is that simple.

That's why I have named this phenomenom Costanza's Theorem (after George on Seinfeld who
discovered that everything he did was wrong, so the opposite must be right), which states:
Everything the BFEE says is a lie, so the the opposite must be true.

So far this has approach has not let me down.
Keep up the pressure!

We Shot Your Kid, Here's $500

When the U.S. drops a bomb that goes awry, lands in an orchard, and does not detonate -- until after
a couple of kids go out to take a look -- our military does not feel any moral or legal reason to compensate
the family of the dead child because this is, after all, broadly speaking, a "combat situation."

Also: What price (when we do pay) do we place on the life of a 9-year-old boy, shot by one of our soldiers
who mistook his book bag for a bomb satchel? Would you believe $500? And when we shoot an Iraqi journalist
on a bridge we shell out $2500 to his widow -- but why not the measly $5000 she had requested?

Last June, we learned that a local custom in Iraq known as "solatia" had now been adapted by the U.S. military
-- it means families receive financial compensation for physical damage or a loss of life.  Payoffs had "skyrocketed
from just under $5 million in 2004 to almost $20 million last year, according to Pentagon financial data."

"Our founding fathers would be astounded that we haven't used the impeachment clause 
more frequently. They would have said 'Every generation they'll have to throw some bastard out'. 
It's ultimate accountability.  Compare Clinton's peccadilloes for which he was impeached to Bush 
and Cheney's high crimes and misdemeanors, and I think they pale in significance."

Subject: Hillary

I'm sure you are tired of hearing about the "Great Hillary Debate" but I'd like to throw in my 2 cents.

I read every day and I think the the position you take to "support the front runner" is a bit pre mature.
There is always time to get behind the front runner after the convention. The time leading up to the primaries
should not be about who can win (I think any Dem can win this season) but about who has the best ideas.

I happen to support Edwards because I spent time going over records, reading profusely and then deciding
who I liked best. To just support someone because they are in the lead seems either uncaring or lazy.

I still love ya Bart but instead of justifying Hillary because she's highest in the polls
couldn't you tell us why you support her over the other candidates. Thanks.
 John L

Any Democrat would be light years better than Bush or any Republican.
I think it would be a hoot to have Bill back in the White House.

As far as "uncaring or lazy," I think I'm just being honest.

Why do most "lefty" sites refuse to say they'll back the Demo nominee?
They can't, because there's too much money to be made slamming Hillary.
It's all about the cash...

American Justice

Osama still runs free, and I hear OJ Simpson had a great time at the Kentucky Derby,
but thank Koresh Bush has been able to nab the serious criminals that still haunt us.

He got Tommy Chong for selling plastic tubing,
He got Martha Stewart for whatever it was she might've done,
and that Hilton woman is going to jail.

FYI, Palast is not a "Brit".

I never said he was.

He's American but works in the UK.

Gas prices

Bill Clinton didn't do anything about gas prices because when he was
in charge the whole world was drowning in cheap-as-hell gasoline.

But after Bush stole his way into power, they started gouging, with his permission.

Harry Reid was Right
  by Ted Rall

"I believe...that this war is lost," said Harry Reid. Obviously he's right (and overdue). Amend that: he was right.
Within 24 hours Democrats were backpedaling, stampeded by the usual onslaught of scorn and pseudo-patriotic
outrage from Fox-fed GOP dead-enders.

"What Harry Reid is saying is that this war is lost...The war is not lost," Charles Schumer clarified, less than brilliantly.

A letter to the editor of a small paper in Maryland encapsulated the hawks' strident anti-defeatism. "Reid should be
asked to resign his position as majority leader and also as senator," wrote one Al Eisner. "Such disgraceful and defeatist
comments represent a total abandonment of our troops fighting the war against terror and will only embolden the enemy."
Don't speak of ill of the dead, or of their doomed cause! The enemy, meanwhile, has already booked the banquet hall
for next year's victory celebration.

We haven't just lost in Iraq. For a lot of the same reasons, the U.S. war against Afghanistan was doomed before it began.

Subject: 2008 and Hillary

You nailed it when you said: "Our choices aren't Hillary and Perfection.
Our choices are Change and More of the Same. I'm going to vote for Change."

Hillary may not be the perfect nominee, but she's a lot better than anyone they offer.
Let's not forget that.

Subject: I hate you

Hey Bartdude,

Read your latest issue and noticed a picture showing Mexicans crossing over into the U.S. 
Question: How come you never show a picture of bottom of the barrel Europeans invading 
the Western Hemisphere and committing genocide on the Native Americans? 

I don't do any graphics.
I only publish what others create.
Besides, the Europeans can't swim that far.

Why are Europeans considered to be "legal" immigrants?  They are not. 
It seems you have fallen into the same anti-Native American, Anti-Hispanic hate orgy 
as John Avarios at AmerikkkaBlog.

I don't know John at Ameriblog, but I'm down with Hispanics and Native Americans.
They're my dawgs.

I will no longer read your blog nor will I encourage any of my friends to read it as well. 

That's a pretty harsh punishment you're putting on yourself.
How are you going to get by without your daily dose of Bartcop?

Your continued hate of Hispanic people is now clear. 

It is?
Could you explain it to me?
Maybe you could quote my numerous anti-immigration rants over the years?
Oh, that's right - you can't because there aren't any.
I don't even have a position on immigration, besides the one you invented for me. 

Don't you think it's a little crazy to pick one graphic out of the thousands I've published
and decide that's the perfect summation of my attitude and alleged biases?
Last weekend, I drove 600 miles to hear a band sing in Spanish - does that count?

As Dick Cheney said in Congress and I state to you, "Go Fuck Yourself"
 False Prophet

You must've written this drunk because you're not making any sense.
The difference between us is you're full of hate and I'm a friendly guy.

Subject: Benchmarks

Bush and the Congress are talking about authorizing funding for Iraq based on "benchmarks" 
which require Iraq to accomplish certain feats to get continued funding. But on the eve of the 
Iraqi parliament starting a  two month vacation we already know that Iraq isn't going to meet 
the benchmarks. So why bother?

This is all about stalling. 
Bush wants to stall because he wants to stick the failure on the next president.

Iraq Rejects Occupation

On Tuesday, without note in the U.S. media, (Of course not - it's their job to protect Der Monkey)
more than half of the members of Iraq's parliament rejected the continuing occupation of their country. 
144 lawmakers signed onto a legislative petition calling on Bush to set a timetable for withdrawal.

It's a hugely significant development. Lawmakers demanding an end to the occupation now have the 
upper hand in the Iraqi legislature for the first time; previous attempts at a similar resolution fell just short
of the 138 votes needed to pass (there are 275 members of the Iraqi parliament, but many have fled the
country's civil conflict, and at times it's been difficult to arrive at a quorum).

Cheney on DC Madam's List
 He paid for sex while Halliburton CEO


Wayne Madsen reports that three people confirm that Cheney, while CEO of Halliburton, was a client 
of the escort service of DC Madam, Deborah Jeane Palfrey. In addition, one of Cheney's closest military 
advisers and friends was also a client of the DC Madam's Pamela Martin & Associates escort service. 
Cheney used the escort service while he was a part time resident of McLean, Virginia.

After intense pressure from the White House and Disney executives, ABC News killed the story 
after having been given exclusive access to Palfrey's ten years' of phone call records.

We ought to give him this one. Lynne Cheney is right up there in the ultra-extreme, 
harpy-nagging department with Dr Laura and Nancy Grace.

Why are the bees dying?
 Plants can't grow without pollination


American beekeepers have been losing between 50 and 90 percent of their honeybees over the past 
six months, perplexing scientists, driving honey prices higher and threatening fruit and vegetable production.

Beginning in October 2006, beekeepers from 24 states reported that hundreds of thousands of their bees 
were dying and their colonies were being decimated.  In December 2006 beekeepers associations, scientists 
and officials formed the CCD working group, in hopes to identify the cause and solve "Conoly Collapse Disorder."

This may be a more serious problem than global warming.
Bill Maher quoted Einstein as saying mankind will die out four years after the bees die.

Subject: run, little rat, run

I just figured out what's wrong with this whole Republican about-face on the war. 
They're not really concerned with the enormity of this whole illegal operation or the 3500+ dead 
American soldiers or the tens of thousands of pemanantly damaged soldiers or their families. 

They're concerned about damage to the Republican Party. 
They're not fighting for what's right, they're fighting to save their own lily-white asses. 
Like rats from a sinking ship...

Keep fighting, Bart.

No 'Monkey Welcome' Mat


Finding great speaking venues at graduation is never easy for late-second-termers, as Bush is learning. 
Whereas he once spoke at Ohio State or the University of Texas, now he's left with Florida community 
colleges or small schools in rural areas that are run by former aides. But it looks as if it won't be smooth 
sailing Friday, even when Bush speaks at Saint Vincent College, a small Benedictine school in Latrobe, Pa., 
run by Jim Towey, former head of the White House Office of Faith-Based Initiatives...there are unconfirmed 
reports that Benedictine nuns from Erie may be going down to Latrobe to take part in some sort of protest.

In 2003 and 2004 you supported Clark and slammed Howard Dean on numerous occasions. 

I met Clark and I liked him.
I don't remember slamming Dean for anything besides apologizing for telling the truth.

Dean was getting slammed from within the party constantly by those afraid to lose what powers they held. 
He took the fight to Bushco on a constant basis and never got a fraction of the love you give Hillary. 

You got the wrong guy.
I'm not in love with Hillary, Kos is, because she's writing him hueueueueuge checks.

I have no problem with you supporting Hillary, just be fair and honest in your opinions.

Blaming the Iraqis
  by Ivan Eland

The U.S. government and the American news media seem incapable of dealing responsibly 
-- or even rationally -- with the disaster that George W. Bush's invasion has unleashed in Iraq. 
So, naturally, all sides prefer to blame the Iraqis.

To keep the pressure on the administration for eventual U.S. troop withdrawals, the Democrats 
have already begun to blame the Iraqi government for not meeting benchmarks for progress and 
are threatening to include them in legislation.

Some congressional Republicans, sensing another electoral disaster in 2008, are beginning to mimic 
such Democratic arguments. Although the time is not yet ripe for a congressionally required schedule 
for troop withdrawal to override a presidential veto, the time for blaming the Iraqis and attempting to 
impose benchmarks will soon arrive.

 Iraq pumped 3.5M barrels daily before Bush invaded
 and then they got their 2003 Halliburton upgrade

Bush is stealing $220,000,000 every day.

No wonder they were so eager to start a war,

stealing  $220,000,000 every day.

It's the biggest theft in Earth's history.

Exxon made $10B profit in 90 days
 $100M a day - all profit - because Bush started a fake war


Bush's "Bring 'em on" death taunt is up to...

3,382....3,386 American victims

4 more families destroyed by Bush greed.


...and how much did BIG OIL make yesterday?
Exxon makes $108M - every day

Bush can live with that,
because Iraq's oil wells have no meters
and his front company is moving to Dubai.

 $100M a day,
$200M a day,
$300M a day - where's that money going?

Bush has killed more Americans than Osama.

GOP pressures Bush on quagmire


I've been to a lot of meetings at the White House. I've been to a lot of meetings with Bush about the war. 
This was one of the toughest, frankest, no-holds-barred meetings in terms of the members who were there 
giving their assessment of where they think things are in their district and the country...'We want a very candid 
report in September,' LaHood said. 'We don't want politics mixed into it. And the way forward after September, 
if the report is not good, is going to be very, very difficult.'

There's a little language in this show.

Part One is a "debate" with Randi Rhodes.
Hopefully this we been seen as an example
of how 2 Democrats can strongly disagree
without the usual hyper-snippishness.

Who won the "debate?"
I think the vote will go her way.

Part Two needs some 'splainin'
Michael DelGiorno is a lying, Nazi whore and,
worse than our vulgar Pigboy, he hides behind Jesus.
He broke the law, he got caught on tape,
so he "confessed" and begged for forgiveness.

I know I got carried away.

I had a little too much fun, so be prepared
to not hate me for what I did to him.
If you're not in the mood for a mega-sarcastic,
rhetorically violent beatdown, maybe skip Part Two.
There's some comedy at the end of each half.
