Halfway Measures on Bush's Tribunals 
  by Robert Parry   Sept 18, 2007

TIn a memorable scene from "Fahrenheit 9/11," Rep. John Conyers explains how it was that Congress 
passed the USA Patriot Act without knowing many of its provisions. "Sit down, my son," the courtly 
Michigan Democrat said. "We don't read most of the bills."

That reality does not appear to have changed much. In back-to-back years, Congress rushed through 
two sweeping pieces of legislation - the Military Commissions Act of 2006 and the Protect America Act 
of 2007 - without a full understanding of the powers being granted to President George W. Bush.

Now, the U.S. Senate is expected to consider legislation scrapping one part of the 2006 law,
its denial of habeas corpus - the ancient protection against arbitrary arrests - to foreigners whom 
Bush has designated "unlawful enemy combatants."

Congress seems to be extra-stupid.
They allow these laws to go into affect with language such as "any person" when Bush 
talks about "the tools we need to prevent al-AQaeda from attacking the homeland."

The Patriots Acts, as written, give Bush absolute power over everyone in all cases.

Bush also has the power to take total control of everything "in a national emergency,"
which means what, a tsunami? A market correction? A power failure? A UFO sighting?

Today, a plane crashed into a restaurant in Carolina - will Bush declare martial law?

How could congress give anyone such power, much less a crooked bastard who stole power?

 Did John Kerry just say that?

 "Whatever happened, the police had a reason?"

John, what if the cops tasered people wearing, "Why did Kerry quit?" t-shirts?

Would that be a clear-cut case of  "the police had a reason?"
Would cops zapping people wearing those t-shirts be "something they needed to do?"

Are you really a lawyer, John?

The fall of the Godmongers
 by Mark Morford - one of the best


No matter how clamped down we as a culture become, no matter how much misinterpreted Biblical dogma 
we're forced to swallow, no matter how many insidious laws are passed limiting behaviors and restricting 
independent thought and repressing sexuality and banning dildos in Texas, it will never be enough.

And why? Because the fundamentalist mind-set is not so much a firm and rational set of beliefs based on 
thoughtful interpretation of strict Biblical screed as it is, well, a paranoid wallowing in fear. Fear of the Other, 
fear of change, of progress, of the new and different and young and the sexual and the truly spiritual. 
And as we all know from almost seven years of Bush, fear knows no reason. It knows no stability. 
Fear is simply insatiable, voracious, and about as un-Godlike as Jesus with a machine gun.

Der Fuhrer can't admit mistakes

Robert Draper's Dead Certain, a sympathetic portrait of the Bush disaster, reports that Bush had insisted 
to his chief of staff Andrew Card up to the time of Card's resignation in April 2006 that there were WMDs in Iraq. 
The president does not give up easily on something of which he is dead certain. He can't give up on it.

Therefore, the atmosphere and rhetoric last week were the same as they had been through the whole war. 
Victory in Iraq, Iraqi democracy, progress, fighting terrorism, brave troops, stability in the Middle East 
-- with Petraeus' name thrown in almost every other sentence.

Draper effectively dismisses the notion that the president is just plain dumb and that Cheney or Rove were 
running the presidency. Yet, he adds, the questions that some who served on Bush's staff had were whether
"a man [could be] all that secure with himself if he felt compelled to assert over and over that he never wavered, 
never lost a wink of sleep and harbored no regrets? What bespoke his compulsive optimism, and was it, 
in the end, worth the loss of credibility?"

It is a question about which many Americans wonder. Why can't he change his mind?

Subject: Military Uniforms are not a shield against criticism

If a general lies to Congress, the fact that he's wearing a uniform is no shield against criticism.
Lying to Congress is a betrayal of the public trust and a dishonor to to the military.
Criticism is free speech.

Its strategies shattered, a desperate Monkey
is reaching out to the late dictator's henchmen.

Preparations for War with Iran


Have we learnt nothing from the shameful and shameless run-up to the invasion of Iraq? 
Then, Mohammed ElBaradei, head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, quietly but firmly said 
that as far as he and his UN agency were concerned, there was no evidence that Saddam Hussein had 
nuclear weapons or the materials to make them.

His conclusion was simply swept aside as the US and the British tore into the UN inspector, Hans Blix, 
determined to show that their worst warnings about Saddam were based on fact. ElBaradei and Blix 
proved right in their denial. Jack Straw and the hapless (in this case) Colin Powell were wrong. 

So here we are, nearly five years later, and exactly the same is happening over Iran.

Each time I see Hans Blix's name, I remember lazy comics like Jay Leno doing jokes about him, 
calling him "Mr Magoo" and protraying him as the bumbling idiot who couldn't find any WMDs 
even though "everyone knew" there were border-to-border alllll around Iraq.

I realize Leno is "just" a comedian, but when you have millions of viewers or readers, mocking those 
who say we have no reason to go to war just helps to form the opinions and prejudices that have
caused many of the problems we have today.

"I was incredulous at first and then became mad."

 Hey shithead, go fuck yourself.

 In 1996, when Clinton was president, your party sold t-shirts that said,
    "Where is Lee Harvey Owswald when we need him?" so fuck you.

 In 1998, your party impeached our president during war time, so fuck you.

 In 2000, you said McCain betrayed his fellow POWs in Vietnam, so fuck you.

 Also in 2000, you mocked Gore for going to Vietnam when you went AWOL, so fuck you.

 In 2002, your party morphed Max Cleland into Osama, so fuck you.

 At  your party mocked John Kerry's Purple Hearts, so fuck you.
Does your precious General Betrayus have 
any shrapnel in his ass like John Kerry does?

 You don't give a flying goddamn about the dignity of the soldiers.
 Hell you lied 3,800 of them into an early grave to steal Iraq's oil, so fuck you.

U.S. military cemetery running out of space


A Kansas military cemetery has run out of space after the burial of another casualty of the Iraq war.
"We are full," said Alison Kohler, spokeswoman for the Fort Riley U.S. Army post, home of the 1st Infantry Division.

Fort Riley can bury bodies on top of other bodies if family members want to share a plot, said Kohler.

Oh perfect!

Marcia Ball Live in Oklahoma City


Tazer nation
    by Joe Conason


Tuesday, Chris matthews spoke an important truth for which he is now under attack. Appalled by the Tasering 
of Andrew Meyer during an appearance by Sen. John Kerry, Matthews said on "Hardball" that he regards that 
incident as "an iconic moment" in the degradation of free speech during the Bush years. 

As a guest on that segment, along with Medea Benjamin of Code Pink, who is regularly arrested for protesting 
at public events, I had to agree.   The predictable reaction of the right wing, which had largely treated the Florida
incident as an excuse to bash the wholly innocent Kerry, was to denounce us for daring to broaden the discussion.

Subject: I dare you to f-ing print this

You are still in denial that Hilary is not even a Democrat. 

Clearly, one of us is crazy.

Hint: Bill wasn't either. He sold out everything that "liberalism" stood for. 

Is that why he was heavily booed on Jon Stewart last night? (sarcasm)

He sold out the main ingredient that actually separated Democrats 
from Republicans, just to get elected. His greed was classic GOP.

Could you be less specific?
And now you think his shrill wife is going to save the country?
Since the country is going off a cliff, yeah, I'd like a new direction.

Her health plan really provides nothing. Kucinich's is much better and more reasonable.
And his is much more thoroughly researched.

I hear the Tooth Fairy has a good plan, too - maybe we should nominate him?
Hilary has just hoisted herself on her own petards, 
adding to her very weird program she proposed as First Wench in 1992
 Richard Halfmann.

Karl Rove says, "Tell Richard we appreciate his help."

Bush gives proof

Subject: Your Props to Taserboy Go Too Far

Bart, so Taserboy's a hero?! WTF...
I hate the way people are insinuating it was the substance of his "questions" that got him tasered. 

His insistence on getting an answer to those unanswered questions is what got him tasered.
Sure, if he'd said, "John, you're my hero and thanks for the great fight you waged," 
he wouldn't have been tasered because the tough questions would have never come up. 

If he'd been up there impugning or even praising Kerry's Swift Boat adventures
in that same manner, the same thing would have happened. 

They would've tasered him for praising Kerry? 
Remember, they charged him with "inciting a riot" which was 
all they could think of since he didn't actually break any laws.

Those Pinkertons don't know what Skull and Bones is.

Neither does's political writer Debra Beste.
She says any talk of Skull & Bones is proof that you're "a classic conspiracy nut."

Guy's no hero just for getting zapped. Heroism requires knowing what you're getting into.

I see parallels to Rosa Parks.
When they ordered Taserboy to the back of the bus, he said, "No, dammit, I want answers!"

That took guts and he paid for it with 50,000 volts and a night in jail and a criminal record.
I hope the campus cops are fired and Meyer gets $100,000 in the civil suit.

We just spoke with Greg Palast, whose Armed Madhouse paperback (or "mysterious 'yellow book'", 
as lazy Washington Post blogger, Emil Steiner "reported" it) was being waved and alluded to by Taserboy
Andrew Meyer just prior to his being feloniously assaulted by UF hired goons Monday.

Palast says he is offering the journalism student a job as a paid intern. Meyer had described Palast, 
in his question to Statue John Kerry, as "the top investigate journalist in America."

"Did you notice he never let the book touch the ground?," an impressed Palast wryly noted.

Subject: Taserboy

Gee, Bart, really?

If I wrote it, the answer is "yes."

If Andrew Meyer hadn't been a completely idiotic jerk we wouldn't have known,
before now, that Kerry didn't fight for the 2004 election.

No, Mr. Fancy Lawyer, I never said said that - why would you suggest I did?
I said, 

> "Had Andrew Meyer not stood up, those questions wouldn't even be in the news."

Before the hired guns let loose with 50,000 volts on Mr. Impolite, when was
the last time the major whore networks mentioned Skull & Bones or Ohio being stolen?

BTW, you work on a contingency basis?
I could afford to move to Sausolito if I could go up against you in court every day.

What would we have been able to find out if Andrew showed up at a Her event?  That H is a female?

No telling what that's supposed to mean, but I doubt She'd stand there and say, "What a shame..."
while an innocent US citizen was repeatedly tortured by some hired goons.

I have a feeling that if Andy had decided to pay a visit to Hillary that day, your attitude might be 
a wee bit different.  I can hear it now.  "He was planted by Huffington Post!!"

Maybe if Kerry had the courage to answer some goddamn questions
voters wouldn't have to resort to extreme measures to get some answers.

What I Hate About Political Coverage
 by Paul Krugman, another of the great ones


One of my pet peeves about political reporting is the fact that some of my journalistic colleagues seem to 
want to be in another business - namely, theater criticism. Instead of telling us what candidates are actually 
saying - and whether it's true or false, sensible or silly - they tell us how it went over, and how they think it 
affects the horse race. During the 2004 campaign I went through two months' worth of TV news from the 
major broadcast and cable networks to see what voters had been told about the Bush and Kerry health 
care plans; what I found, and wrote about, were several stories on how the plans were playing, but not 
one story about what was actually in the plans.

Excellent point, and Hillary's 1994 health care plan could be Exhibit One. Nobody reading this 
can tell me what her health care plan was about in 1994, but dozens of readers can complain 
about what a terrible plan it was because they heard somebody else say it was a bad plan.


"If Hillary's health care plan becomes law, unqualified black men
  will be doing surgery on you and your children."
   - G Gordon Liddy, 1994, playing the Willie Horton card to scare the racist bastards

Who fought hardest to hill health care for all of us? 
Republicans and the bribe-givers at Big Pharm and the HMOs, and the Democrats 
sold us out for 14 years because they're scared weenies and bitchy, bitchy little girls.

Pigboy's Sad, Syphilitic Quotes

"Osama says he's going to invade Pakistan and declare war on Musharraf 
   which puts him on the same page with Barack Ubama."
   -- the vulgar Pigboy

"I thank God every day I'm single."
   -- Rush the liar

 Tell the truth, Rush.
 You paid Marta millions if she would stay the full ten years.
 The day that tenth year was up, she was outta there.
 Why would you pay someone millions to put up with your Nazi ass
 and then mock God with the lie that you're glad you're single?

"Some may see divorce as a threat.' Others see it as the salvation."
  -- the syphilitic bastard, mocking God again.

 Hey Rush, didn't you take a vow before God to stay with your first wife, "until death we do part?"
 Didn't you take a vow before God to stay with your second wife, "until death we do part?"
 Didn't you take a vow before God to stay with your third wife, "until death we do part?"
 And now you mock that vow before God by praising divorce?

 If taking a vow before God means nothing, why bother with it?

 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,

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 3,792....3,794

We lost  2 more since last issue.

Death must get damn tired of the
3,794 soldiers Bush threw his way.

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.

Why Cheney Likes Mukasey for A.G.
  by Robert Parry

In praising Bush's new choice for Attorney General, Cheney identified one freedom in particular 
that retired Judge Michael Mukasey would protect: "the freedom from fear of terrorist attacks."

The comment spoke volumes about Bush's priorities, fitting with the President's oft-repeated 
claim that the government has no more important duty than to protect the American people.

That this claim goes unchallenged - despite the fact that the oath administered to federal officials
demands that they defend the Constitution and says nothing about public safety - has been a leading 
indicator of how Bush and Cheney have exploited the self-centeredness of many Americans to 
amass unprecedented executive power.
