Friday  Aug 3, 2007    Vol 2021 - Newt: Phony war

by Bruce Yurgil

Quote of the Day

"None of you should believe we are 
  winning this war. We are in a phony war...
  We have not been taking this seriously." 
     -- Newt Gingrich, running for president,   Link

I told you the first Republican to attack Bush 
would have the advantage - but can Newt win?

Bush's Secret Spying on US
  by Robert Parry

The dispute over Gonzales perjury about Bush’s warrantless surveillance program misses a larger point:
the extraordinary secrecy surrounding these spying operations is not aimed at al-Qaeda, but at the American people.

There has never been a reasonable explanation for why a fuller discussion of these operations would help al-Qaeda,
although that claim often is used by the Bushies to challenge the patriotism of its critics or to avoid tough questions.
On July 27, for instance, Tony Snow fended off reporters who asked about Gonzales’s testimony by saying:

“This gets us back into the situation that I understand is unsatisfactory because there are lots of questions raised
and the vast majority of those we’re not going to be in a position to answer, simply because they do involve
matters of classification that we cannot and will not discuss publicly.”
Discussion closed.

The whole FISA dispute is a handjob, anyway, and the whore media is helping Bush lie.
Bush keeps saying how "cumbersome" obeying the law can be, but they can get their warrants
after they start their spying, so there's no "cumbersome" component. It's a phoney issue,
but Bush gets away with it because the whore media and the Democrats remain silent about it.

The real truth is they want no record of who they're spying on.
If Bush tells the FISA court they wiretapped Hillary, the court might order them to stop
and Bush always gets what he wants so he doesn't want to stop - so no court-supervision.

If only the Democrats would mention Bush's crimes.
If only the whore media would mention Bush's crimes.

"When September comes, you can count on more appeals for delay or excuses.

Why Bush Won't Ax Gonzales


Gonzales is all that stands between the White House and special prosecutors. As dicey as things are
for Bush right now, his advisers know that they could get much worse. In private, Democrats say that
if Gonzales did step down, his replacement would be required to agree to an independent investigation
of Gonzales' tenure in order to be confirmed by the Senate.

Without Gonzales at the helm, the Justice Department would be more likely to approve requests for
investigations into White House activities on everything from misuse of prewar Iraq intelligence to allegations
of political interference in tobacco litigation. And the DOJ could be less likely to block contempt charges
against former White House aides who have refused to testify before Congress. "Bush needs someone at
Justice who's going to watch the White House's back," says a Senate Democratic Judiciary Committee staffer.
If Gonzales steps down, Bush would lose his most reliable shield."

"Our Secretary of Defense is a bit of a liar. Note his quote:
'In some ways we probably all underestimated the depth of the mistrust and how difficult
 it would be for these guys [the Iraqi parliament] to come together on legislation,' Gates said.

Help Stop the Bush bastards

Nearly 700 wolves in Greater Yellowstone
and central Idaho are on death row -- awaiting slaughter
under the Bush Administration's pending "License to Kill" plan.

You have the power to win them a life-saving reprieve
-- but you must act immediately.

Knowing Bush, he's probably
allowing this because he likes to kill.

Act Now

The President's Contempt
 by  Michael Hammerschlag

America is emerging from a long twilight of lawlessness that it has never seen; where trillions of dollars
have been handed to the rich and corporations in tax givebacks; where a dishonest and strategically
suicidal war was rammed through a compliant hack Congress; where our security was compromised by
utter incompetence and vicious politics; where corruption grew to monstrous proportions; and devastating
preventable attacks shattered our mental stability. Rather than deal with these challenges with courage,
grace, and wisdom; Mr. Bush used them to pervert our Constitution and trash our ideals- with illegal torture,
spying on citizens, unjustified invasion, suspension of habeas corpus, and vast payoffs.

Subject: When did peace become un-American?

Hey Bart -

The wife and I made a road trip to Jamesport, Missouri last Saturday for their Summer Festival.
Jamesport is Amish country, and has great food along with a huge selection of antique shops.
One of the antique shops had this button for two bucks.

It started me thinking about exactly when it became unfashionable to be in favor of peace.
Even the American Legion Auxiliary used to support peace - the button proves that.

I'm hanging on to it so I can show my grandchildren that being for peace
didn't used to be considered un-American, even among conservatives.

The Bush bastards knew they were going to create a fake war,
then the whore media saw they could make money promoting Bush's fake war.

The result?

Katrina victims lose insurance suit


Hurricane Katrina victims whose homes and businesses were destroyed when floodwaters breached levees
in the 2005 storm cannot recover money from their insurance companies for the damages, a Bush court ruled.

The case could affect thousands of rebuilding residents and business owners in Louisiana. Robert Hartwig,
chief economist at the industry-funded Insurance Information Institute in New York, said in June that a ruling
against the industry could have cost insurers $1 billion.

Who cares what it costs them?
These people paid those greedy bastards for decades, only to get screwed when they need help?

"This event was excluded from coverage under the plaintiffs' insurance policies, and under Louisiana law,
we are bound to enforce the unambiguous terms of their insurance contracts as written," Judge Carolyn King
wrote for a three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

As a result, the panel found those who filed the suit "are not entitled to recover under their policies," she said.

Why does the reason they lost their home matter?
Why can't poeple buy insurance "against all dangers?"

The crooks at the insurance companies get paid to screw people.

Newt goes off message


"Republican political doctrine has been a failure," Gingrich said. "Look at New Orleans.
How can you say that was a success? Look at Baghdad ... We've been in charge for six years
and I don't think you can look around and say that was a great success.

"We have got to get beyond this political bologna. I'm not allowed to say anything positive about
Hillary Clinton because then I'm not a loyal Republican, and she's not allowed to say anything positive
about me because then she's not a loyal Democrat. What a stupid way to run a country."

He's lying.
That's Obama's message and Newt thinks it'll work for him, but we all remember 
what a savage bastard Mr-Divorce-his-Wife-in-the-Cancer-Hospital can be.

The Rise of Kos
 WaHoPo - now with working link

Democrats and liberals realized they needed a mobilizing force of their own but could not match 
Limbaugh's reach on the radio. Enter the Internet, and Markos Moulitsas.

An Army veteran, a former Republican, Moulitsas created his Daily Kos Web site on May 26, 2002.
Daily Kos took off because so many Democrats shared Moulitsas's view of the second President Bush.

Kos has become the object of GOP rage. In the lead-up to Yearly Kos, Bill O'Reilly has gone after Kos. 
"There's no question that the most vile stuff is posted on this hate site and others like it," O'Reilly said Tuesday.

Bill, I bet Markos loves what you're doing.

Poll: Too Much Celebrity News


Americans blame the media for the saturation of celebrity coverage on TV.

A Pew survey said Thursday that 87% believe celebrity scandals get way too much ink and airtime. 
Only 8% think the media get the balance between celebrity and serious news right, while 2% 
told the surveyors that there wasn't enough celebrity scandal coverage.

There's been no shortage of scandals to report on in 2007, from the...

Subject: Tillman's diary


Long before the "3-bullets to the forehead" revelation, it was reported that Tillman's diary was burned
along with his bloody uniform.  I don't know about you, but I would think that a KIA serviceman's diary
would be the most personal item they could return to his next-of-kin. Why the hell would they burn it
unless they feared Tillman's posthumous political message?

Burning that diary is the biggest red flag in this horrific story.

I agree.
Burning that diary is like burning his letters home - why?
Obviously the diary contained things our trusted government didn't want us to see.

I don't put anything past the evil bastards that have seized power in our country.
Heroes like Tillman get murdered.   Scum like Rove, Libby and Gonzales get protected.

Bush's non-exit exit strategy
 by Joe Conason

To read the prepared testimony of Adm. Mike Mullen, President Bush's pick for Joint Chiefs, 
is to understand that Bush's strategy requires troops to remain in Iraq for a long time, perhaps
permanently.  With unusual candor, the admiral explained in answers submitted before his 
appearance in front of the Senate Armed Services Committee Tuesday that he and the president
believe in the necessity of a "pragmatic, long-term commitment that will be measured in years not months."

How many years Mullen did not say, but he did offer a suggestion in this tangle of redundancies: 
"We must commit to a long-term security relationship with Iraq that facilitates political reconciliation, 
supports development of a stable Iraq, and is directly tied to our enduring long-term interests in the region." 
American forces will be there for the long term, just in case that wasn't clear the first few times."

Subject: Whore Post, Whore CNN and FOX News.....

1. And yet Hillary has accepted $20,000 in campaign donations from News Corp, owner of FOX.  Why? 

2. She doesn't NEED that money as far as I know.  And most certainly she needs that money much less 
    than she needs the support of liberals.

3. Doesn't she realize that much of her desired base has total contempt for that crowd? 

4. Is she so willing to have liberals support another Democrat for President?

5. Hillary doesn't need to play kissy-face with Murdoch, 

6. ...but she certainly has to mend her fences with the more liberal elements of the Democratic Party.

Dave A

Dave, millions of people agree with you - and that puzzles me.
I added numbers to your words to make this easier to follow.

1. If Rush sent me a $20,000 check, would I cash it? 
    Did you really just ask me that? 

2. I think $20K to her is like $5 to you and me. 
   She's not going to give Murdoch some billion dollar media exemption for $5.
   Plus, Obama is out-fund-raising her - unless she's holding back for the big surge.

3. I think she realizes more stuff than 99% of politicians.

4. She's going to be president. 
    Democrats have a choice between her and a Republican.
    Do you feel black right now?

5. She realizes that, too.

6. That could be true, but do we want her to change her ideas to please other people?

Gonzales Slips Further


Seldom have a cabinet official and a Congress been so at odds. After months of bickering over
fired US attorneys, congressional subpoenas, and secret eavesdropping, embattled Attorney General
Alberto Gonzales now has few supporters left on Capitol Hill, even among his fellow Republicans.

Mr. Gonzales's bitterest foes have gone so far as to call for a special counsel to investigate whether
he has perjured himself in congressional testimony. Others have begun pushing for his impeachment.

But it remains unlikely that lawmakers alone will oust the attorney general from office. By all accounts
Gonzales retains the support of the person who could fire him in a stroke: Der Monkey in a Man Suit.

Blogger Educates O'Reilly's Neighbors


I believe in the idea that bravery is speaking truth to power, and by that measure, DailyKos blogger
Mike Stark is a pretty brave cat. He went to Bill O’Repeated Sexual Harrassment’s house to inform
his neighbors about who is living next door to them.

I delivered the Andrea Mackris Court filings to all of his neighors - every home in his development got a copy.
And I put up signs along his street - "Bill O'Reilly:  Andrea Mackris has your cash" across from his house;
"Bill O'Reilly:  PERVERT" in front of his home; "Bill O'Reilly:  CHEATER" on the exit road from his
home and "Bill O'Reilly:  Can't be trusted with your daughters" at the entrance to his neighborhood.

 Iraq pumped 3.5M barrels daily before Bush invaded

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

Who got 3,665 soldiers killed?

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?
