"The United States is committed to the world-wide elimination of torture and we are leading this fight by example. 
I call on all governments to join with the United States and the community of law-abiding nations in prohibiting, 
investigating, and prosecuting all acts of torture and in undertaking to prevent other cruel and unusual punishment. 
I call on all nations to speak out against torture in all its forms and to make ending torture an essential part of their diplomacy."

Colonels in Mirrored Sunglasses


I can appreciate why Karl Rove is upset about recent revelations about Bush's torture policies. After all, who wants their 
friends and colleagues to end up looking like war criminals? Rove has a specific job to do: make Bush and his team look better, 
while trying to destroy President Obama and his team. The latest evidence puts Rove in a tougher position. Poor guy.

But that hardly excuses the kind of foolish rhetoric Rove is throwing around. On Fox News (where else?), for example, 
Rove said the administration's recent disclosures about torture are 'very dangerous.' Rove insisted, 'What they've essentially 
said is if we have policy disagreements with our predecessors . . . We're going to turn ourselves into the moral equivalent of 
a Latin American country run by colonels in mirrored sunglasses and what we're gonna do is prosecute systematically the 
previous administration, or threaten prosecutions against the previous administration, based on policy differences. 
Is that what we've come to in this country?'

You see, in Rove World, the way to avoid becoming a banana republic is to have a chief executive who ignores the rule of law.

They are stuck and they know it.
After 8 years of destroying the GOP, the Bush bastards are now asking all conservatives
to become pro-torture to save them and I wonder if they're willing to go that far. 

The GOP is trying desperately to stage a comeback - but can they do that by being pro-torture?

 Subject: Texas wants out?

Hey Bart, if Texas if fed up with government inteference and secedes, will they refuse foreign aid from the US? 
Will they refuse military assistance since they have no standing military for protection? How long before they will be 
annexed by Mexico since they believe it to be a part of their country anyway? 

They should just be stocking up on all those assault weapons going south because they will need them when there 
is no US to protect their border and the drug lords move in to operate freely. Just a few of the thoughts I have 
about their being fed up with US government. Where will they be without it?

Texas hasn't thought any of this through.
They're just throwing a tantrum like a nine-year old kid.

Who knows? Maybe they want to bring back slavery.

Mike Malloy Live

Hannity Offers to be Waterboarded 


Sean Hannity had actor Charles Grodin on his show tonight, and the two men actually had some 
genuinely good natured sparring with each other over the news of the week

GRODIN: You're for torture.

HANNITY: I am for enhanced interrogation.

GRODIN: You don't believe it's torture. Have you ever been waterboarded?

HANNITY: No, but Ollie North has.

GRODIN: Would you consent to be waterboarded? We can waterboard you?


GRODIN: Are you busy on Sunday?

HANNITY: I'll do it for charity. I'll let you do it. 

This will only work if the waterboarding is done by somebody who hates Hannity.
The Right has portrayed waterboarding as cuffing a man and sprinkling his chest with water,
which any six year old could do four hours without any problem.

The trick comes when the viictim actually believes he's drowning, 
which won't work if Hannity's in a studio giggling with his co-workers.

So expect a sham.

If they wanted to do this right, they'd blindfold Hannity, strip him naked and turn him over to me 
in a barn far away from his friends. Real quick, Hannity would realize he was in real danger and you 
can bet your balls he would actually be afraid for his life because I'd hold his head underwater until 
he was forced to swallow.  After I did that about 20 times, Hannity would be my little bitch.

I give you my very best Nancy Grace Guarantee that Hannity would go back to his studio
with an entirely new perspective on the meaning of waterboarding.

This is a story of America. An America beset by tyranny, theocratic skulduggery,
crippling climate change, diminished petroleum, nature gone awry, and unrelenting war.
George W. Bush has been declared Emperor, and the United States is on the verge of dissolution.
To make matters worse, bees are disappearing, aliens are invading, and politicians are in cahoots with bankers.


Why Torture is Good 
 by the Whore Stereet Journal Editors


In a saner world (or at least one that accurately reported on original documents), all of this would be a point of pride for the CIA. 
It would serve as evidence of the Bush Administration's scrupulousness regarding the life and health of the detainees, 
and demonstrate how wrong are the claims that harsh interrogations yielded no useful intelligence.

Instead, the release of the memos has unleashed the liberal mob, with renewed calls in Congress for a "truth commission" 
and even, perhaps, Judge Bybee's impeachment and prosecutions of the other authors.   Obama has hinted that while his 
Administration won't prosecute CIA officials, it may try to sate the mob by going after Bush officials who wrote the memos.

One major concern here is what Obama's decision to release these memos says about his own political leadership. 
He claims that one of his goals as president is to restore more comity to our politics, especially concerning national security. 
He also knows he needs a CIA willing to take risks to keep the country safe. Yet Mr. Obama seems more than willing to 
indulge the revenge fantasies of the left, as long as its potential victims served a different president.

In other words, it's unpatriotic to enforce the law.  A few scrolls above, Bush said, 
"I call on all nations to speak out against torture..." which is exactly what Obama is doing.

Bush knew he was committing crimes and he repeatedly said "We do not torture."
And now that he's been caught, the Whore Street Journal wants us to believe that Bush is a decent, honest man?

"When the subject has anything to do with sex, the right in America is the party of moral absolutes.  
We know what's right, we know what's wrong, and even if there's a price to pay we can't shirk our responsibility 
to set a proper example and do the right thing. But when the subject is torture, suddenly it's all about carefully 
weighing the costs and benefits.  Having an honest debate about how far we should go to protect ourselves.  
Understanding the context of what happened.  It's just not possible to flatly say that waterboarding and sleep 
deprivation and stress positions are barbarisms unfit for use by a civilized country.  It's much more complex 
than that. Funny how that works, isn't it?"

 He's right - sex is always wrong, according to the Grand Old Perverts.

 Subject: "American" Cars 

 Bart, you asked
> So what explains America's refusal to buy from GM, Ford and Chrysler?
For me it was this:
I had a GM for 3 years and replaced the transmission, muffler, starter, alternator and catalytic converter.
I had a Chrysler for 2 years and replaced the alternator, muffler, smog pump, CV joint, 2 clutches, and radiator.
I had a Ford for a year and a half and replaced the transmission, timing belt, carburator, muffler, alternator,
and vacuum advance unit (wtf ever that is)
Then I had a Subaru for 10 years and drove it until it had 200,000 miles on it and other 
than routine maintenance it was in the shop exactly once, for a broken tail light cover. 
I never even bothered to change the oil until it went 15 or 20 thousand miles.
I don't really give a crap where it was made, I just want the thing to go when I need it to. 
You know what they say, "fool me 4 times, shame on me."

Cheney's Spirit of Openness 

When he was vice president, Dick Cheney never acknowledged the public's right to know anything. Now, suddenly, 
he has the full disclosure bug. He told Fox News this week that President Obamaís decision to release memos written 
by the Bush Justice Department authorizing the abuse and torture of detainees inspired him to ask the Central Intelligence 
Agency to release transcripts of those interrogations...

Cheney claims that the waterboarding saved thousands of lives. Most accounts that don't come from officials involved in 
the formation of those policies suggest that that is not the case. The question needs to be answered so Americans can 
decide if they want to buy into Mr. Cheney's view that the ends always justify such barbaric means.

If torture works, if their methods got valuable information from the al Qaeda guys,
why haven't they caught or killed Bush's former oil partner, Osama bin Laden?

Bush started torturing...
 ...then he asked if it was legal


A man imprisoned after 9-11, as a suspected terrorist was tortured in numerous secret CIA prisons before 
Bush bastard memos allowing the practice had even been written, according to a lawsuit filed in a federal court.
"Beginning in December 2001, [Rafiq] Alhami was tortured repeatedly, the lawsuit claims," reported the Whore AP.

"The methods were varied: At different times Alhami was stripped naked, threatened with dogs, shackled in painful 
'stress' positions for hours, punched, kicked and exposed to extremes of heat and cold. The suit also alleges Alhami's 
interrogators sprayed pepper spray on his hemorrhoids, causing extreme pain.

Like the Fascist dogs and Clinton's impeachment, these Bush bastards were always going to
torture somebody.  They just needed an excuse - and 9-11 showed up and made their day.

Reagan and Bush sold weapons to terrorists, and lied about it - and that's OK.

But if Obama shakes the hand of another country's leader, he's putting America in danger.

Hi Bart,

How is it that the U.S. Air Force can be all over a small plane within a few minutes 
when it wanders into Washington DC protected air space, but they can't manage to 
intercept four commercial jets on 9/11 within 40 minutes?

Nelson, the Air Force has admitted they had orders to "stand down" that day.

But, of course, the shit we call the American Whore Media can't be bothered 
to cover that because people want more info on what Paris Hilton is doing..

That 9-11 Commission was a sham designed to make Bush look less stupid and less guilty.
We have no idea what happened that day.

"A war crime investigation does not look at the people who drove the trains -- they look at the people who told 
the trains to roll. Bush and Cheney, the CIA director, the attorney general ... implemented, in full knowledge that 
it was a war crime, the torture program. A true war crime investigation would be given to a special prosecutor, 
who would follow it where it would lead him or her. And that would most certainly lead him...or her to Bush and Cheney
and the people like the CIA director and attorney general who pushed through this program. God help us if the 
only thing we get out of this is a commission modeled on 9/11."
    -- Jonathan Turley,    Link 

 We all know the Bush bastards are guilty - and how do we know?
 Because they stood there for years and said, "Torture is wrong so we're not doing it."
 I knew the 9-11 Commission would be a total handjob the minute they announced that 
Lee Whitewash Hamilton would chair the son of a bitch.  Gee, I guess Pauly Shore was busy that day?

Lee Hamilton helped Poppy Bush cover up Iran-Contra, 
so by putting him in charge of Bush's phoney 9-11 commission, 
we were guaranteed that "mistakes were made" and "nobody was responsible."

Of course, any investigation will take years and years and the American Whore Press
will spend those years screaming, "Witch hunt," and the public will get sick of it.

Bottom Line: 
If you're going to commit global crimes, make 'em super-sized and there's no penalty.

Top legislators knew of interrogations


The CIA briefed top Democrats and Republicans on the congressional intelligence committees more than 30 times 
about Bush's torture schemes, according to intelligence sources who said the lawmakers tacitly approved the techniques 
that some Democrats in Congress now say should land Bush administration officials in jail.

Between 2002 and 2006, the top Republicans and Democrats on the House and Senate intelligence committees 
"each got complete, benchmark briefings on the program," said one of the intelligence sources who is familiar with the briefings.

"If Congress wanted to kill this program, all it had to do was withhold funding," said the source.

Those who were briefed included Nancy Pelosi, Sen. John Rockefeller of West Virginia and Rep. Jane Harman of California, 
all Democrats, and Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas, Sen. Shelby of Alabama and Rep. Peter Hoekstra of Michigan, all Republicans. 

I say we (figureatively) hang them all.
Pelosi, Rockefeller and Harman should - at the very least - step down from power.

They supplied the funding for torture and that makes them guilty.

Ron Kuby had the perfect solution if Texas wants to secede. 
We build that big wall they want on the other side of Texas and have the 
gun lovers in Oklahoma protect the wall to keep the Texas out of our country. 
We invade Texas and steal all their oil. 

We make them use passports if they want to travel in our country. 
We do away with NAFTA and tax anything going in or out of Texas. 
I would also suggest a heavy toll at the border. 

If a hurricane happens to hit Texas, they can handle it themselves. 
As far as the NFL is concerned, America's team will become Texas' team 
and will not be playing in our NFL anymore. An added benefit would be that 
we would no longer have to worry about Texas' electorial votes and Democrats 
will win every national election. Sounds like a plan to me.
