"Based on the official list of campaign donors
published last Friday, it seems that Big Business has also turned its back on the Republicans.
Sixty corporate CEOs who had previously donated primarily to the Bush campaigns are now giving
more money to the Democrats." -- Gabor Steingart, Link
And the suicial left sees this as BAD bews?
How did I get in a party that wants to lose so bad?
Please, Ralph Nader, come and save us from this victory!
Excerpt: Given Hillary Clinton's emergence as the frontrunner,
a Consortiumnews.com reader asked that we post
the entire first chapter of Robert Parry's 2004
book, Secrecy & Privilege:
The book opens with a scene early in the second
year of Bill Clinton's presidency with him explaining to
White House guests why he didn't pursue geopolitical
scandals that had implicated George H.W. Bush
in gross abuses of power and arguably criminal
Clinton made clear he saw historical truth as
less important than his hopes for Republican cooperation on
his domestic agenda. But this willingness to
sweep major scandals under the rug left the White House
back door ajar for a restoration of the Bush
Family dynasty a half dozen years later - with disastrous
consequences for the American Republic.
This is the second time Parry has charged Clinton with ignoring the
Let's hope Hillary does a better job.
Excerpt: Anita Hill was not the only women to allege that
she had been sexually harassed by Thomas. Angela Wright,
who worked with Thomas at the EEOC, told the
Senate Judiciary Committee that Thomas had repeatedly
made comments to her, much like those he allegedly
made to Hill, pressuring her for dates, commenting on
her body, etc. As chair of the Judiciary Committee,
Sen. Joseph Biden decided against publicly hearing
Wright's testimony. Transcripts were, however,
released to the press.
Another former Thomas assistant, Sukari Hardnett,
made further damaging charges against him. Although
Hardnett made it clear she was not accusing Thomas
of sexual harassment, she provided the Judiciary
Committee with sworn testimony that "if you were
young, black, female, reasonably attractive and worked
directly for Clarence Thomas, you knew full well
you were being inspected and auditioned as a female."
When Hardnett's statement was reported in major
national papers, it was usually buried. And the American
whore media continues to protect the Republicans
by continuing to assert that the Hill/Thomas matter
was a case of one person's word against another's.
"There are a lot of quiet conservatives who
aren't saying much (they have a lot of pride invested in the old Clinton animosity) but I hear more
and more neutral to positive comments about Hillary than I ever have before. I repeat: this
is Texas. This is Sugar Land, Texas. Tom DeLay's district, one of the most conservative places, and they
are softening to Hillary."

I don't know what I don't like more when it comes
to Democrats -
them rolling over or people apologizing for them
like I have been reading on your website.
"Apologizing for Democrats" isn't a phrase you'll
see much on this page.
Would you make up an excuse for John Kerry doing
nothing to stop Andrew Meyer from being tasered?
No, I spoke out against his cowardice in the taser
If you were a regular reader, you'd know that.
As for dems - cut the funding!
There is enough money in the pipeline to bring
the troops home.
Probably, but Bush controls the money in the pipeline.
Are you going to defend the dems that voted for
the wire tapping bill?
Are we jumping from subject to subject with each
As I understand it, the Dems voted for that so
they wouldn't be late for their vacation.
That makes them cowards and wimps and whiners
who aren't doing their jobs.
So cutting the funding does not mean not supporting
Back to that subject, are we?
I agree with you, but that's not how the Bush
and the GOP and their whore media will tell it.
And, as I said last issue (if you were a regular
reader you'd know) voters are so damn stupid
they will believe the lies they hear so that
must be avoided.
If Bush leaves them there then the fault is on
him not the democrats.
If only we could get the super-stupid voters to
agree with that.
You seem to saying it is ok for dems to be pink
That's not what I'm saying.
I'm saying it's stupid to assist in your own suicide.
I will vote for Hillary if she gets the nomination
for president but for the primary.
I will not be voting for a former board of director
of walmart, Hillary.
I will either vote for Edwards or Dennis K.
Too bad AL Gore is not running
because I would vote for him if he was in the
primary in a heartbeart.
What makes you think Gore would disagree with
Hillary, Obama and Edwards? Like Obama before the war, Gore has the luxury
of sitting out the tough decisions.
Then, once the chips fall, Gore can say, "I
was on that side all along," if
Nothing against Gore, but if he was in this fight, he wouldn't be the
saviour with all the answers.
He'd be just another Democratic candidate in the crowded debates.
"Saddam clearly had had WMD. He clearly had
had the beginnings of a nuclear program. He acknowledged, I think, in filings made
by the UN that sometime prior to the invasion - that he had chemical and biological weapons.
I mean he used chemical weapons on the Kurds."

Hey Fraud, the BFEE did lots of business with
Saddam, multi-millions of dollars worth - after he gassed
the Kurds with chemicals he got from Rummy.
Yes, he had chemical weapons - back when Rummy had hair.
Excerpt: Last month, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman
Patrick Leahy (D-Rubberstamp) had a simple message:
The President's nominee for attorney general,
Michael Mukasey, wasn't going anywhere until the administration
finally handed over documents he'd long been
But now it appears that things are moving along,
though it seems that the administration hasn't handed over anything.
When it comes to standing up to Bush's crimes, Leahy is another Lee
Excerpts: The controversy over what Rush Limbaugh meant
when he uttered the phrase "phony soldiers" last week
isn't just another broadcast sideshow. As the
political power of conservatism declines, the symbolic authority
of figures such as Limbaugh is likewise shrinking.
That is why he backs away from his own words, rips them
from context by selectively editing his program's
transcript and insists he didn't demean soldiers and
veterans who dissent from Bush's war policy -
as he and his fellow partisans have done so many times before.
Excerpt: Ciara Durkin was home on leave last month and
expressed a concern to her family:
If something happens to me in Afghanistan,
don't let it go without an investigation.
Durkin, 30, was found dead last week. She had
been shot once in the head, the Army says.
Fiona Canavan, Durkin's older sister, said today
that when her sister was home three weeks ago,
she told family members that she had come across
some things that concerned her and had raised
objections to others at the base.
"She said, 'I discovered some things I don't like
and I made some enemies because of it.'
Then she said, in her light-hearted way, 'If
anything happens to me, you guys make sure it gets investigated,'
Canavan said. ''But at the time we thought it
was said more as a joke.''
Why do the whore networks pretend there's a shortage of real news?
CNN spent most of Wednesday on the "big story" that somewhere in America,
the word "nigger" was used in a test about the racial history of our
The way CNN played it, you'd think Bush invaded Iran.
The talk radio Nazis do the same thing - they find some teacher in Idaho
who says, "Bush is stupid," then they attack every teacher in America for being anti-American,
Excerpt: Der Fuhrer, in a sharp confrontation with Congress,
on Wednesday vetoed a bipartisan bill
that would have dramatically expanded children's
It was only the fourth veto of Bush's presidency,
and one that some Republicans feared could carry steep risks
for their party in next year's elections. The
Senate approved the bill with enough votes to override the veto,
but the margin in the House fell short of the
Democrats unleashed a stream of harsh rhetoric,
as they geared up for a battle to both improve their chances
of winning a veto override and score political
points against Republicans who oppose the expansion.
Harry Reid, (D-LimpDishrag), decried Bush's action
as a "heartless veto."
It's going to be interesting to see how Republicans
can claim that they are
the "Family Values" party when they deny sick
children health care.
It's almost like they are deliberately trying
to lose the election.
The Republicans are going to have some "splainin"
Excerpt: Bill O'Reilly has vowed revenge against all the
"far-left kooks" who have been so insolent as to hold his
own words up for scrutiny, thankfully stopping
just short of murder. As a public service, Keith Olbermann
offers this handy guide to dealing with those
pesky producer-stalkers that Loofah Boy has sicced on others before.

Excerpt: Hillary's laugh is something new to make fun
of, since Clinton's hairstyles, pantsuits, makeup,
and cleavage have been pretty well pawed over.
Clinton's ideological enemies have had fun, too.
Matt Drudge posted a sound clip of it, and Sean Hannity
raised the pressing question of whether Clinton's
laughter was presidential. Hannity should be reminded that
Der Fuhrer's Beavis laugh was such an accurate
imitation he should have to pay Mike Judge royalties.
Like all aspects of the Clinton campaign, there's
sexism in the giggle critique:
Women can only laugh in certain preapproved ways.
either cackle like a witch, or they titter like
Don't look at her policies or her political positions
- base your vote on who laughs best.
This is how stupid voters are -
Bush almost got elected in 2000 because some people said
they'd rather have a beer with Bush than Al Gore,
the man with a brain and common sense.
"Harry Reid has a long, sorry record of abandoning
the troops on the battlefield. What do you think 55 resolutions to

Limbaugh, his brain wracked with syphilitic fever.
Rush, I think a resolution to bring the troops home is about bringing
the troops home.
How do you see soldiers coming home as Reid "abandoning" the
Excerpt: The disarray of the GOP primary season, the collapse
in Republican fund-raising, the almost hilarious
attempts of the sectarian religious base to find
a candidate saintly enough (but not a Mormon, thanks!),
and the complete contempt for fiscal conservatism
championed by Gerson, Rove and Bush have all
made an impact. The Wall Street Journal provides
the raw data today, and a new mantra that will
define a generation. I didn't leave the Republican
party. It left me.
