Bush is al-Qaeda's Strategic Ally
  by Robert Parry

U.S. officials have finally admitted what has long been obvious: that Bush's "global war on terror" has been 
an expensive failure, costing hundreds of billions of dollars and claiming possibly hundreds of thousands of lives, 
but making the world no safer and quite likely more dangerous.

Bush's top counterterrorism advisers acknowledged as much on July 17 in releasing a summary of a National 
Intelligence Estimate that represented the consensus view of the U.S. intelligence community.

Bush's warnings that we must fight them in Iraq so "we don't have to fight them here" or so "they won't follow
us home" turn out to be the opposite of the truth: because U.S. forces are occupying Iraq, al-Qaeda has more
resources and more recruits determined to bring the war to the United States.

"The idea that the White House can lay out a scorecard for progress in Iraq after the death, 
destruction and regional turmoil it has unleashed is politically incredible, intellectually offensive 
and morally deficient.  Blaming Iraqis for being unable to handle the consequences of a brutal, 
disfiguring attack makes Bush the bizarre purveyor of a terrible combination of moral callousness 
and foreign policy criminality."

Generation Chickenhawk


In conversations with these College Republicans about in Iraq, I listened as they lip-synched discredited cant about
"fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them over here." Many of the young GOP cadres I met described
the so-called "war on terror" as nothing less than the cause of their time.

Yet when I asked them why they were not participating in this historical cause, they went into contortions.
Asthma. Bad knees. "Medical reasons." "It's not for me."  Like the current Chickenhawks, the GOP's next generation
would rather cheerlead from the sidelines while less privileged young men and women fight and die.

His Russian hunting trip


Texas energy billionaire Dan Duncan violated Russian hunting laws during a 2002 trip, apparently.

Duncan, 74, co-founder and chairman of Enterprise Products Partners, a big pipeline company,
appeared before the panel on Wednesday to answer questions about a helicopter hunting trip
he and others took with Russian guides five years ago.

Duncan told the Houston Chronicle he shot and killed a moose and a sheep from a helicopter,
a practice he did not know was illegal in Russia.

Who knew it was wrong to hover over defenseless animals in a helicopter
and slaughter them by using the most expensive guns a rich Republican can afford?

Next thing you know, they say it's wrong to hunt drugged bears and lions in Texas cages.

Our old friends at

Subject: Romney Not a Mormon Convert

The Wikipedia entry for Mitt's dad (and former Governor of Michigan) says that Mitt's great grandparents
were such committed polygamist Mormons that they fled the United States for Mexico because the federal
government was hunting down polygamists.  Mitt's dad was born in Mexico because of polygamist persecution.
And Mitt is descended from one of the original Mormon "apostles" and his Dad served as a Mormon "patriarch"
until his death.  To suggest that Mitt is a Mormon "convert" is just a little ridiculous.

Earthquakes and Nukes


The massive earthquake that shook Japan this week nearly killed millions in a nuclear apocalypse.

It also produced one of the most terrifying sentences ever buried in a newspaper. As reported deep in 
The New York Whore Times, the Tokyo Electric Company admitted that "the force of the shaking caused 
by the earthquake had exceeded the design limits of the reactors, suggesting that the plant's builders had 
underestimated the strength of possible earthquakes in the region."

There are 55 reactors in Japan. Virtually all of them are on or near major earthquake faults.

There are four active reactors in California on or near major earthquake faults, 

"So what's the problem?"

FEMA Trailers Toxic
 Another crony deal gone bad


For almost 2 years, FEMA has suppressed warnings from its own field workers about health problems 
experienced by hurricane victims living in government-provided trailers with levels of a toxic chemical 
75 times the recommended maximum for U.S. workers, congressional lawmakers said yesterday.

A trail of e-mails obtained by investigators shows that the agency's lawyers rejected a proposal for systematic 
testing of the levels of potentially cancer-causing formaldehyde gas in the trailers, out of concern that the agency 
would be legally liable for any hazards or health problems. As many as 120,000 families displaced by hurricanes 
Katrina and Rita lived in the suspect trailers, and hundreds have complained of ill effects."

We know why Bush put those poor black people in toxic trailers.

Facts undercut Bush's stories

The misbegotten Iraq war has diverted attention from those objectives. It has boosted al-Qaeda's 
standing and recruitment. Though no meaningful link existed before between Iraq and al-Qaeda 
-- and Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11 -- one has now been created. Worse yet, 
the Iraq war has split the nation and shattered the post-9/11 sense of shared purpose...

The prudent response is to treat the findings as a sobering springboard back to the clarity of purpose 
just after 9/11, when the nation understood where the threat came from and united behind Bush's vow 
to track bin Laden and his followers to the ends of the earth.

"I swear I'll hunt down Osama
 right after I steal all the oil in Iraq!"

Subject: re: Obama's 250,000 donors


This story depends on how the campaign merchandise (stickers, t-shirts, mugs, etc) is counted.
Obama has not been "caught" at anything.

I disagree, but let's move on.

"UPDATE #2: Obama aide Dan Pfeiffer emailed reporters today denying that there's any "trick" involved in
taking in small donations for merchandise, and adding:   'Campaigns that don't expect to have this level of
interest among small donors tend to outsource their campaign material sales to vendors. For example, the
Clinton campaign has contracted with Financial Innovations to sell their paraphernalia. Financial Innovations
makes all of the profit from those sales and takes the loss if no one buys the materials. To our knowledge,
the Obama Campaign, because of the tremendous grassroots enthusiasm, is the only campaign to feel they
could generate sufficient interest in T-shirts and other materials to not contract with an outside vendor.'"


and there's more at

Makes sense to me...

She who cannot be named doesn't count these sales as donors since they're not technically selling the items.
Obama does count them as donations because his campaign is directly selling these types of items.
More on how other campaigns have counted at the mydd link
 Mark, long-time reader

Mark, with all respect, we're talking about different things.
Hillary and Obama can sell anything they want to anyone who'll buy it - I don't care.
But Obama did get caught.

His campaign and the media made a BIG DEAL out of the super-diverse donor groundwork he had.
How people, the little people, the salt of the Earth, kept turning out for the Obama revolution.
He's a man of the people - 250,000 donors proves Obama is another JFK, or RFK.

But turns out he counted everybody who bought something and since I know human nature,
I have a feeling those stickers and pictures were "value priced," so everyone spent a buck.

I like Obama, he could win and he could be the best president since FDR,

...and I'd love that.

...but he did get caught.

He made a rookie mistake with that whole "I'm above all that" business - and now he's stuck.
When you're 20 points behind, you have to run attack ads, but he promised he'd never do that.

BC, the two Democratic front runner Presidential candidates are current members of the Senate.  
They want to lead the country.  Shouldn't they start by showing some leadership qualities right now 
by calling for impeachment as some others, who are not running and have a real spine, are?  

A majority of Americans, according to recent polls, want both Bush and Cheney impeached.  
But not a word from those two cowards.

Helen, one of those 'cowards' is going to be president.
Becoming the leader of the inpeachment movement could change that fact.

"Telling the truth about Iraq reinforces the suspicion that we will abandon our allies in Iraq,

Bush: Agree with me or I'll take your property

I, George Bush, due to the unusual threat to national security posed by acts of violence threatening the
stability of Iraq declare that it is in the interests of the United States to take additional steps.  I hereby order:

All property of the following persons are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn,
or otherwise dealt in: any person determined by the government (the King and his co-conspirators) to have
committed, or to pose a significant riskof committing, an act or acts of violence that have the purpose or
effect of threatening the stability of Iraq or undermining efforts to promote reconstruction and assist the Iraqi people;

I took out a few hundred legal words, but basically that reads:
"If you try to block anything I'm doing in Iraq, I can seize your property."

Worse, it says, "Anyone who poses a risk of threatening the stability of Bush's Iraq."

So, any American who they suspect might try to block their crimes in Iraq can lose evrything.

Isn't it time the Republicans took care of this problem?

Perkel on Bush's TSA list

I, Marc Perkel, the founder of the Church of Reality is now listed on the American TSA list as a terrorist suspect.
The TSA (US Transportation Security Administration) maintains a "selectee list" which lists people who are flagged
for heightened security screening. This list, which has not caught a single real terrorist, is used mostly as a political
enemies list against activists who are speaking out against government abuses of power.

"In some ways this is a badge of honor", states Marc Perkel, First One of the Church of Reality. In this environment
of repression of non-Christian religions in America, if you aren't on the TSA list you aren't getting your message out.
I consider it to be an acknowledgement that I'm doing my job."

Marc is not on the no fly list.
This is just a harassment list that the US government keeps to intimidate activists.

As a result, the United States of America is now on the Church of Reality list of nations who are hostile to
Realism and Realists and the US is a nation that is moving towards oppressing religious freedom.

Rudy and Romney: Artful dodgers
  by Joe Conason

Nothing unites Republicans more than their bellicose barking about war and confrontation. Their debates often 
sound like a tough-man competition, with Rudy denouncing the "cut-and-run" Democrats, Romney demanding 
a double-size Gitmo, and the rest of the pack struggling to keep pace with the snarling alpha dogs.

Yet none of these martial orators has seen a day of military service -- except for McCain, whose prospects are 
rapidly deflating, and Duncan Hunter, whose campaign never got enough air for a single balloon. Unfortunately 
for those two decorated veterans, their party seems to prefer its hawks to be of the chicken variety.

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

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

No wonder they were so eager to start a war,

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


Some people celebrate Bush's bloody oil war...

Some don't.
x 3628  3630

They  got 2 more since yesterday.

Who's the monster responsible?


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.

Bartcop Flashback  from Volume 1115  Broiling in Baghdad - July 17, 2003

Even if they falsely claim that Clinton sent our troops into Somalia,
It's as easy as looking at the numbers...

Clinton inherits Bush's Somalia disaster                     18   brave men lost

Bush 41 offers Kuwait to Saddam                              143 brave men lost

Reagan orders troops housed on land in Lebanon    220  brave men lost.

Bush the dumber lies to start his fake oil war           206  brave men lost and climbing higher every day..

That's why they keep reminding you of Somalia, almost every day.
They don't want you to know the facts  - they need all eyes on Clinton's zipper
to get away with the biggest robbery in history - the US Treasury and Iraq's oil.

 Where are the Democrats?

Four years later, 3620 dead soldiers later, I'm still asking - where are the Democrats?

Another 'Christian' caught

Rev. Coy Privette, the president of the Christian Action League, a North Carolina ultraconservative 
Christian political organization based in Raleigh, has been arrested for soliciting prostitution:


Privette, 74, was charged with six counts of misdemeanor aiding and abetting prostitution by renting 
a hotel room and paying for sexual acts. Police were investigating a forged check case, which led them 
to the prostitution charges. Privette paid the prostitute with checks he then reported as stolen, officials said.

Privette and his wife have four children.

Subject: BCR withdrawal

I about had a fit last night, Bart. I didn't know my subscription was  running out
and had been 'saving' BCR Show 121. I've discovered that a  Bartcop Radio show
is just the ticket for making the time fly when I  have some onerous housekeeping task to do.

So last night, it was  cleaning out the fridge. I was actually looking forward to this job
as I dragged the laptop into the kitchen and ... tried to log in.  Again. And again. And again.

OK, fair enough. Time to send Bart some $$$. So I went to PayPal and  did the deed, thinking that
somehow through the miracle of the intertubes, I'd be let back into the wonderful world of Bart.
But  nooooooooooo.

Well, I had to clean that fridge because my mother-in-law is coming  and I can't have her seeing
any penicillen projects in there, so I tuned into Air America and suffered through an hour of the most
boring radio on the planet. The commercials are more interesting than the program at night. Not fun.

You'll notice that I'm on the automatic monthly renewal to avoid a  repeat.

Joanne, thanks for that, and sorry about that delay.

Your Grandfather's Emmys
 Why can't they get anything right?

Proving once again that the Emmys are an outdated institution on the edge of irrelevance, 
the nominations came out today, and outside from a few pleasant surprises, it's more of the same
- the same shows being rewarded, the same shows being snubbed, etc.

"Veronica Mars," in the estimation of many television critics including myself, was one of the best shows 
on television during its three year run, and has exactly zero nominations during that time to show for it.
"Battlestar Galactica" is another show destined to be ignored by the Emmys.  It's more of the same from 
the people who nominated David Hyde Pierce (a good actor, but come on) ten staggering years in a row.

What about Rescue Me?  What about Dexter?  Or The Wire?
I'm surprised Will and Grace wasn't nominated - again.

The Sopranos had a bad year, yet they cleaned up on nominations.
When they were at their best, the Emmys went to The West Wing 
when they had a bad year.  Why can't they get anything right?

Will they still award Emmys when TV turns all reality all the time?

Psycho wins World Series of Poker


It took an unlikely straight on the final card of the 205th hand, but Jerry Yang beat Tuan Lam
to win the 2007 World Series of Poker's $8M first prize and his first WSOP bracelet.
Lam, who avoided elimination several times, finished second for $4,840,981.

At 3:48 a.m. local time, the crowd burst into cheers while friends mobbed Yang.

Yang described himself as a "true rookie" coming to his first World Series.
He is a psychologist and has played poker for only two years.

I watched the first 13 hours, then got drowsy.
I set the TIVO but, as always, it shut off early.

Since it was live, they didn't show the hole cards, so the entertainment value was lowered.
It was produced by idiots who couldn't even tell us what the hole cards were even after they'd been turned up.
Sometimes it took a full minute for us to learn what the palyers' cards were.
Worse, since it was the biggest game of their lives, they often stared into space
for 5-10 minutes trying to make up their minds to raise, call or fold.

There were some hysterical moments that should make it into BCR 122.
The eventual winner has a personal relationship wih Jesus Christ.
Each time he was in a big pot, he'd remind Jesus what a swell dude he was.
"Jesus, love you long time, and I could really use a King or a Queen."

Lee Watkinson was the only one of the nine finalists I'd ever heard of.
Poker's gotten so big, our favorite players can't make it to the TV events.

It was the only TV poker game in years where I wasn't left wanting more.

Bush idiocy kills
 by Ray McGovern

Bush is convinced, in the face of all evidence to the contrary, that he is on the right course
in the war in Iraq and the struggle against terrorism. He says he will not change his mind.

Thus, we are at an historic moment; and we would be well advised to see what light historians 
might shed on our current predicament in Iraq and the basic (but unanswered) question as to 
why so many people resort to terrorism against us.

Historian Tuchman wrote: "Wooden-headedness...plays a remarkably large role in government.
It consists in assessing a situation in terms of preconceived fixed notions while ignoring or rejecting 
any contrary signs. It is acting according to wish while not allowing oneself to be deflected by the facts."

About Bush, Tuchman might've said:
"No experience of the failure of his policy could shake his belief in its essential excellence."

 Got a Shirley picture we haven't run?

 Two Garbage CDs coming - one next Tuesday, one next summer.

Bart, I saw this today and thought you might find it interesting:

Absolute Garbage - Garbage ( Buy DVD) Four albums and seven Grammy® nominations later,
Garbage has its first best of DVD collection - Absolute Garbage. Among the 15 Garbage music videos
on DVD for the first time. Plus unreleased in the U.S.: You Look So Fine and Shut Your Mouth.

Also included is almost an hour of never-before-seen footage backstage and behind-the-scenes,
live performances and interviews, spanning the band s entire career. Absolute Garbage offers the best of
a band that, to quote a lyric from Queer, has been the strangest of the strange, the coolest of the cool.
