"Rudy is attacking Hillary for refusing to
attack MoveOn.org for attacking Petraeus. And, listen to this, General Petraeus
was once stationed in Egypt, the birthplace of Omar Sharif, who once did 'McKenna's Gold' with
Eli Wallach, who was in 'Mystic River' with Kevin Bacon" -- Bill Maher
Excerpt: As Gen. David Petraeus outlined plans for a long-term
U.S. military occupation of Iraq, he relied heavily
on two arguments favored by his civilian superiors
in the Bush administration but not supported by the facts
- that al-Qaeda views Iraq as the "central front"
in the war on terror and is eager to drive American forces out.
To support his position, Petraeus cited the views
of senior U.S. intelligence officials based on captured
al-Qaeda documents. However, in a letter, terrorist
Atiyah told Zarqawi that "the most important thing is
that the jihad continues with steadfastness and
firm rooting, and that it grows in terms of supporters, strength,
clarity of justification, and visible proof each
day. Indeed, prolonging the war is in our interest." [Emphasis added]
Every day al Qaeda beats up the American military the
terrorists grow stronger.
We're getting our ass kicked by old school cave-dwellers
and teenage handjobs.
Why do we pay $40B a year for a military that
can't beat Kid Nation?
Excerpt: "Palast said you won the 2004 election - isn't
that amazing? There were multiple reports of disenfranchising
of Black voters on the day of the election in 2004 in Florida and Ohio. ... How could
you concede the election on the day?"
We warned you: 'Armed Madhouse' is a dangerous
book. Andrew Meyers was attacked by cops,
zapped with tasers and arrested after demanding
that John Kerry answer the question.
Meyers said, "In this book, it says there were
5 million votes and you won the election. ...
How could you concede the election on the day?"
Meyers asked related questions including a query
as to why Kerry refused to vote for impeachment.
When he passed his alloted one minute mic time,
five cops jumped him, threw him to the ground,
shot him with taser shockers.
Kerry, true to character, stood immobile.
Is this it for John Kerry's career in politics?
Can he survive another screw-up of this mega?
What was that kid's crime, illegal speaking?
And they tasered him for non-silence?
Hey John, maybe it's time to hang up the old track shoes and call it
You were a hero - 35 years ago.

There is video of the takedown, and it is excellent.
There had several cameras from multiple angles.

that female soldiers in the Middle East have
no fear of being raped. My daughter

She reports that a large incidence of problems
they are seeing among female personnel
are urinary infections due to the female personnel
'holding it in' during the night rather than
venture out to the bathrooms after dark, for
fear of being molested by their 'fellow soldiers'.
Sad but true. It just doesn't get much reporting.

that Flynt's not a hypocrite who lies about liking

John Kerry proved the Swift Boaters correct again.
He is a coward!!!
Just let that kid get tasered in Florida and
did nothing to stop it when he clearly could have.
Just as in 04 when he let is Skull and Bones

Skull and Bones for life Baby!!
The police in this country are way out of control.
You can't even talk or they are ready to tackle
you and taser your ass for non-conformity.
Why does one need to be tased when six punk ass
cops are on top of the kid?
I'd like to take one of them one on one and after
I whip that ass I would taser that pig.

Seems the cops have the Blackwater immunity
in this country and nobody gives a shit, Kerry
just stood there and said nothing.
That's so creepy.
It sounds like he got tasered
with no air in his lungs, and before he could scream,
first he had to inhale and it must've been the longest second of that
I remember watching an old U2 bootleg, way back, maybe from the 1992
Mid-song, I think it was "Still haven't Found," Bono saw some security

He stopped the song cold dead and screamed into the mic for those cops
to quit beating the man.
Bono said, "That's
going to happen at a U2 concert."
Excerpt: As Bush tries to squeeze 16 more months of political
advantage from America's 9/11 memories, it is worth
recalling how different history might have been
had Bush heeded intelligence warnings in the summer of 2001.
Bush's supporters have worked mightily to foist
off blame for the attacks on Clinton, but the truth is that the
key developments in the emergence of Osama bin
Laden and his terrorist band date back to the Reagan-Bush
years of the 1980s - and the missed opportunities
to stop the attacks fell heavily on George W. Bush's watch.

BTW, if speaking too long is a crime, Kerry should be on Death Row.
In 2001 or 2002 (I think) Federal Judge Michael
Mukasey, currently nominated for Attorney General
by President Bush, registered under a pseudonym
and began to post at NPR's "Community" internet forum.
Rule #1 of the old forums (the forums are gone
now-- and not replaced) was that you should use your real name.
I managed to trace and identify Mr. Mukasey
and outed him as federal judge. It's only a minor crime (I think) under the Patriot
Act to disobey website rules, but Mr. Mukasey seemed to want
to discuss issues that related to cases in his
court docket or might be reasonably expected to be there in future.
Typically, those were the sort of things we discussed.
I'm sorry that I do not have access to this information
directly, but I have checked with some other
"Community" members who also remember the incident.
If a pubic hair on a can of Coca-Cola was enough
to set the nation in a tizzy over Clarence Thomas'
nomination to the Supreme Court, inappropriate
discussion of issues on a public forum seems fair game.
I assume that NPR has kept data-backups of the
old "Community" forum
and could easily search for the name Mukasey.
If NPR has destroyed this digitally-stored information,
I feel confident that it is retained

and stopped the suffering of millions of innocent people.

Carol, excellent point.
If we had demanded the truth from Powell, an extra 3,791
soldiers could've enjoyed
a Labor Day Barbecue with their loved ones but nobody asked Powell
to tell the fucking truth.
Powell decided he'd rather be Bush's House Nigger than save those

yet he can still go on Jay Leno and yuk it up and sell books, the traitorous,
I have to agree with you there. I caught part
of their ongoing "investigative" series, in which some guy
had sat outside in his car, lost his nerve, and
drove off. They chased him down and arrested him for
thinking about committing a crime and changing
his mind! I couldn't believe it.
Larry Craig, Republican asshole that he is, was
nailed in much the same way. I have no sympathy for his
being outted as a closeted self-hating gay man,
but he didn't commit a crime. All he did was advertise his
desire to have sex, and that's not illegal, I
don't care who you are or where you come from. But it's like you say,
just because you are arrested and convicted doesn't
mean you have actually committed a crime, it just means
you might have needed a lawyer willing to ask
the judge what crime was committed.
And as for the seeming increase in tasering of
people by the police, I suggest that police training should
require that each officer issued a taser be tasered
at least twice a year, so they can always know what it
feels like. Same with pepper spray. They'd be
a lot less likely to whip out the stun gun at the drop of a hat.
Excerpt: Some have questioned Sen. John Kerry's actions
mean inaction) during the now infamous incident
at the University of Florida in which student
Andrew Meyer was eventually Tasered by a campus cop.
Why didn't Kerry do more to intercede?
For instance, he could've, in that stentorian
voice of his, strongly asked the police to stop manhandling Meyer.
He could've even pre-empted the police before
the tussle started by asking them to back off Meyer.
He might've mollified Meyer by saying, "Let's
talk after the event." He might've taken action instead of standing
there like a coward.
An eyewitness to the entire episode, Clarissa
Jessup, indicates Kerry did try to deescalate the matter,
and did just about tell the police
to stand down. Here's the transcript:
"John Kerry didtry to interfere
with the police. at one point, police where holding on to meyers. kerry got to a point where he almost

In February, American officials promised to process
7,000 refugees by Sept. 30, later downgrading
that goal to 2,000. And as with every other pledge
on security and political progress in Iraq, American
officials have failed spectacularly to achieve
even that lower target. So far, only 900 refugees have
made it to the United States this year.

Excerpt: Extra Sleazy Rice and Maliki agreed that U.S.
diplomats must be free to travel around Iraq, but how they will
do that is now a point of contention. The U.S.
embassy in Baghdad relies heavily on Blackwater's thugs to guard
its personnel as they visit government ministries
and other sites around Iraq. American diplomats have not been
able to travel outside the Green Zone since Iraq
suspended Blackwater's goons following a firefight Sunday that
resulted in the murders of at least eight Iraqi
civilians. "We're there to strengthen the Iraqi Government. We're not
able to do that all in the Green Zone," Rice
said she told Maliki in the conversation. And, she claimed, he agreed.
Rice told the whore press traveling with her that
the two governments are negotiating a way for the embassy to
operate safely and allay Iraq's concerns about
what it says is excessive force by Blackwater's thugs. To pressure
Maliki into allowing Blackwater's goons to continue
robbing, raping and killing, the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad has
stopped all ground movement of American diplomats
throughout Iraq outside the Green Zone.
If Bush's personal goon squad isn't free to terrorize,
murder and steal, why bother to stay in Iraq?
Excerpt: "Swear him in." That's all I said in the unusual
silence as first aid was being administered to
Petraeus's microphone at the hearing before the
House Armed Services and Foreign Affairs Committees.
It had dawned on me that when Chairman Ike Skelton,
D-Missouri, invited Petraeus to make his presentation,
Skelton forgot to ask him to take the customary
oath to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
I had no idea that would be enough to get me
thrown out of the hearing.
I had a flashback to a Senate Judiciary Committee
hearing in early 2006, when Patrick Leahy, (D-Rubberstamp) reminded chairman Arlen Specter, that Specter
had forgotten to swear in the witness, Alberto Gonzales; and how
Specter insisted that that would not be necessary.
Now that may, or may not, be an invidious comparison.
But Petraeus and Gonzales work for the same boss,
who has a rather unusual relationship with the
truth. How many of his senior staff could readily be convicted,
as was the hapless-and-now-commuted Scooter Libby,
