Excerpt: Far from the high hopes of last November, congressional
Democrats are in disarray and retreat.
Their leaders have repeated many of the same
mistakes of 2002, surrendering both on Bush's
demands for more "war on terror" powers and blank
checks for the Iraq War. The hard truth for
Democrats is that the political dynamics of Washington
have changed little over the past five years
-- and that reality could undermine their chances
in Election 2008.
I said some nice things about Dennis Kucinich yesterday.
Maybe I should've given that more thought.
"Hillary Clinton must take responsibility for
this war. Every finger she points at Bush - she
has three more pointed back at herself."
-- Dennis Kucinich on Scarborough (R-Killed that intern) yesterday
First, is Dennis still in grade school?
Who told him childish taunts can make you president?
Second, is he saying Hillary bears three times the responsibility
for Bush's war?
She voted with the majority, so isn't Dennis being a little selective
in his outrage?
I know it's frustrating to be stuck at one percent, Dennis, but
why give up your dignity?
This list is incomplete.
Where's Lindsey Graham?
Where's Mitch the Bitch O'Connell?
"My former position does not qualify me to
comment upon such matters. Folks like Senator Craig and Senator
Vitter most likely need the opinion and guidance of professional psychiatrists!" --

When all of these stories are taken into consideration,
it amounts to a warning of another terrorist attack
(be that false flag or real) before September
21st. Every American should scream out at the top of their lungs,
"We KNOW what you are planning - and there
will be consequences for THIS Administration if this happens!" FraidSo2
Excerpt: Members of the 1st Battalion 265 Air Defense
Artillery have mobilized and are on
a plane headed first to Ft. Bliss, then for federal
active duty in the capital region.
The troops will be deployed for a year.
Excerpt: Massive evidence has come to our attention which
shows that the allies of Cheney are determined
to manufacture a new 9/11 terror incident, and/or
a new Gulf of Tonkin war provocation over the
coming weeks and months. Such events would be
used as a pretext for launching a war against Iran,
quite possibly with nuclear weapons, and for
imposing a regime of martial law here in the United States.
Excerpt: Al Qaeda has an active plot to hit the West.
The United States knows about it but doesn't have
enough tactical detail to issue a precise warning
or raise the threat level, says Vice Admiral (ret.)

Excerpt: An anonymous investor has placed a bet on an
index of Europe's top 50 stocks falling by a third
by the end of September, as world equity markets
plunged for a third day and volatility hit a three-year high.
Excerpt: The two sales are being referred to by market
traders as "bin Laden trades" because
only an event on the scale of 9-11 could make
these short-sell options valuable.
The buyer can only make money if the market drops
30%-50% within the next four weeks.
If the market does not drop, the buyer stands
to lose over $1 billion just for engaging in these contracts!
Clearly, someone knows something big is going
to happen BEFORE the options expire on Sept. 21.
It takes a lot to get me onboard a conspiracy theory, but when somebody
puts down $1 billion
and says, "I'll bet you the market will crash
in the next 4 weeks," I'd take him seriously.
You generally don't get your hands on a billion dollars if you're wrong
But would the markets fall by 1/4 if Cheney bombed Iran?
If he does, look for oil to go to $100 a barrel real quick.
"We are asking more and more of our families
than I would ever have thought possible."

Iraq War, Link
In many cases, these kids are 18, 19 and
20 years old, and they're having to deal with pressure
like you and I have never felt. And
when they snap and kill somebody for no reason, they'll be
put on trial and then ruin what's left
of their lives - all so Bush could steal Iraq's oil.
Excerpt: From 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET on August 27, Fox News
devoted only 3 minutes to segments discussing
Larry Craig's arrest for trying to blow some
dude and his subsequent guilty plea to charges of disorderly conduct.
In the same six-hour period, MSNBC devoted 8
minutes to Craig's arrest, while CNN devoted 20 minutes.
They'll do anything to protect the sex-crazed Republican lawbreakers.
NPR was interviewing people from a small town
(Jones City?) about their views on Iraq.
The interviewer pointed out in advance that this
was an army base town, and that it was conservative.
Still, there were a few disgruntled voices (one
woman divorced her husband when he came back
because he had changed and become violent-- and
was hitting/abusing her and the children).
The one that got me was a serviceman's wife who
felt we should stay in Iraq because, if we left now,
it would make her husband's sacrifices meaningless--he
had missed their daughter's 16h birthday and
high school graduation. I mean, yes, it's
a pity he couldn't be there, but he is alive and healthy.
Think of all the women who have lost their husbands,
or had them maimed, and think of all
those who will continue to do so because of this
asinine war (1000+ dead Americans per year.
Bush has beaten Osama's record now).
Throwing good money after bad because we can't
admit we've screwed up
--that is now Middle America's the 28%er's rationale
for staying in Iraq.
Excerpt: On the second anniversary of Hurricane Katrina,
anger over the stalled rebuilding was palpable throughout
a city where the mourning for the dead and feeling
of loss for flooded homes, schools, snow cone stands,
old-time hairstylists and hardware stores doesn't
seem to subside.
On Wednesday, protesters planned to march from
the obliterated Lower 9th Ward to Congo Square.
They will again try to spread their message that
the government has failed to help people return.
"People are angry and they want to send a message
to politicians to do more and do it faster,"
said the Rev. Marshall Truehill, a Baptist pastor,
"Nobody's going to be partying."
Uh, excuse me, Reverend, but your problem isn't
with "politicians," it's with Bush.
The spineless Democrats have allowed the "everyone
shares the blame" horseshit
to take hold.
In the two years since Bush allowed your city
to drown, the super-rich have gotten their tax cuts
in full and on-time. Bush can deliver if there's
something in it for him and his friends,
but the truth is Bush doesn't care about black
"Lookie me, Pickles, I'm a gee-tar player! What? New Orleans is drowning? Them darkies didn't vote for me, did
they? Heh heh!"
In 1998 Republican Senator Larry Craig voted to
impeach President Clinton over sex and perjury charges.
Now Larry Craig has pleaded guilty to charges
involving him attempting to have gay sex with an undercover
police officer in the Men's Room of an airport.
Larry claims that he is not gay and that he really didn't do
what he pleaded guilty to. But when Clinton was
on trial they said that it wasn't really about the sex, but
that he lied under oath about it. Today Larry
Craig admitted that he lied under oath to a judge when he
pleaded guilty in court. Isn't that the same
thing that they impeached Clinton over?
The problem with Republicans and sex scandals
is that if you are going to be the party that stands up
to the gay agenda then you have to get rid of
senators who plead guilty in court. Besides, when I'm in the
airport and I go into the Men's Room, I don't
want to think about if there are gay Republican senators
in there tapping their feet and looking through
keyholes for someone to have oral sex with.
Hi Bart, I don't agree with all you say on your
site. Maybe a bit more than half, I would say.
But you come right out and SAY it, and say it
direct and hard! As the saying goes,
"A hard man is good to find" (though that was
in another context, so don't take it wrong;
I mean it regarding your hammering).
This is using freedom of speech as I think it
should be, so you have my support.
Keep swinging that hammer!

It's been a while, maybe a year back, Bill Maher was on Larry King and
he said said
at-the-time head of the RNC Ken Mehlman was gay. Larry said he didn't
when they re-ran the program 3 hours later, CNN dutifully censored
Maher's comments so they could do their job and protect the Boy King and his crooked
gang of thugs.
Then about 2-3 weeks ago, when they had that dorky You Tube debate,
we found out
that the most often asked question "from the people," (that
was the whole point, remember?)
was "Why don't you yellow bastards impeach
Bush?" but CNN blocked that
once again, to protect the Boy Furhrer and his Fascist Nazi thugs.
Why can't CNN just give us the news?
Why is it their job to protect Bush?
People know FOX News is there to praise Bush and hide his crimes as
best they can,
but not everybody knows CNN is right there with FOX, protecting the
I believe if one feels they have to legislate
their religious beliefs,
it shows a glaring lack of faith in that religion.
If it's so good,
why can't they get others to follow simply by
setting an example?
For right wing religious wackos, it's not about
These people want to kill in the name of God
for cryin' out loud!
How much more insane can we get?

Excerpt: The real question for Republicans is how low
can we go, because we are approaching a level of ridiculousness,"
said Scott Reed, Fascist strategerist, sounding
exasperated in an interview. "The impact this is having on the
grass-roots around the country is devastating.
Republicans think they elected a bunch of buffoons who have
total disregard for the principles of the party,
the law of the land and the future of the country."
Then again, Washington does not have a monopoly
on sex and corruption. Just ask Thomas Ravenel, the state
treasurer of South Carolina, who had to step
down as state chairman of Rudys campaign after he was indicted
on cocaine charges in June.
Or Bob Allen, a state representative in Florida
who was jettisoned from the John McCain campaign
last month after he was arrested on charges of
soliciting sex in a public restroom.
Senator Craig, has severed ties with Romney, despite
his public declaration that "I did nothing wrong."
Excerpt: The resignation of the torturer in chief was
noted by Bush as an unfortunate day for American democracy.
"It's sad that we live in a time when a talented
and honorable person like Alberto Gonzales is impeded from
doing important work because his good name was
dragged through the mud for political reasons," Bush lied.
What good name? After all, Bush only picked Gonzales
to be the nation's highest law enforcement official once
Gonzales had proven his mettle for the job as
White House counsel. His legal advice to the president was that
torture is a legitimate option, because Bush's
self-defined "war on terror" wiped out all prior legal restraint and
in particular "renders obsolete Geneva's strict
limitations on questioning of enemy prisoners."
No wonder Bush needed to appoint Gonzales as attorney
general, lest some enterprising Justice Department
lawyer dare expose the criminality emanating
from the White House.
Bart, I believe one reason you may be having trouble
with getting donations
is because of your enormous ego and talking about
how great you are in
almost everything and not admitting that both
parties are two of the same.
Greedy and serving their masters,with a few exceptions.
Simple, follow the money and who supports them.
You support Clinton but do not mention her financial
supporters and then put down an honorable man with
a great voting record because he has a ""R" behind
his name and because he is a republican and you would
never vote for one of them, even if they are
liberal and believes in most every thing you do and probably
most of your readers do. His name as you
well know is Ron Paul. Let see if you post this.
As nice as you've been, how could I not?
You are never going to find a candidate that believes
in everything you or I do, It won't happen.
Let your readers know about this exceptional
statesman.( Ronnie the Rocket).
I will also not vote for a neo-con or a neo-dem.
I do enjoy your website though.
Keep on hammering. You do have a set of big ones
and I admire that.
Excerpt: Bush presents the history of the Vietnam War
as a Rambo movie with the heroic narrative
that if only the U.S. military had stuck it out,
the war would have been won. Or, more likely,
the Vietnam War Memorial would stretch most of
the way to the U.S. Capitol.
In Bush's version of history, condemnation should
fall on LBJ, Nixon and Ford for eventually
extricating the United States from the Vietnam
quagmire - rather than on Eisenhower, JFK,
Johnson and Nixon for inserting or keeping U.S.
troops in the middle of the Indochinese civil war.
