The Supreme Court's Partisanship
  by Bob Parry


The Court’s landmark ruling that lets corporations spend all they want to punish political enemies
and reward political friends is a reminder that the panel’s Republican majority has become one more
potent weapon in the Right’s already intimidating arsenal.

Over the past several decades, the American Right has assembled such an array of political weaponry
– ranging from a vast propaganda apparatus that defines “reality” for tens of millions of Americans to
specialized attack groups that can target troublesome figures in the press or academia – that it’s hard to
envision how this powerful grip on U.S. democracy can now be broken.

The Right's influence is so wide and so deep that it can front for wealthy special interests under the guise
of “populism” and persuade many Americans that their real enemy is not Big Corporations, but Big Government.

Guided by Fox News and other well-financed parts of the right-wing media, the Tea Partiers apparently
believe they are engaged in a movement to free the Republic from the tyranny of the federal government,
when they’re actually helping consolidate the power of corporations against the only force that can possibly
check corporate domination, a democratized federal government.

"The whole thing basically went like that: Republican asked obnoxious question rooted in

  before it was over. Democrats were asking: "Where the hell has this guy been?"

"It took a fucking year for Obama to step into the ring and start throwing some verbal blows.

Inhofe has been spouting dumbshit since 1994, likely probably sooner (no pun intended),

I have had to slink away from a conversation at a nice little gathering somewhere when people
ask me where I'm from and I say 'Oklahoma' and they say "What's with Jim Inhofe?"

I have an idea - fuck what they want.

Just do whatever you want, like Bush did for 8 years,
and tell the no-to-everything bastards to go pound sand.

I wish the Democrats had a leader.

May I go bankrupt, please?
Why do people vote against their own interests?


Last year, in a series of "town-hall meetings" across the country, Americans debated healthcare reforms.
What happened was an explosion of rage and barely suppressed violence.

Polling evidence suggests that the numbers who think the reforms go too far are nearly matched by
those who think they do not go far enough.

But it is striking that the people who most dislike the whole idea of healthcare reform - the ones who
think it is socialist, godless, a step on the road to a police state - are often the ones it seems designed to help...

The Republicans have learnt how to stoke up resentment against the patronising liberal elite,
all those do-gooders who assume they know what poor people ought to be thinking.

Right-wing politics has become a vehicle for channeling this popular anger against intellectual snobs.
America's poorest citizens have a deep emotional attachment to a party that serves the rich.

This is a culture war but it is not simply being driven by differences over abortion, or religion, or patriotism.
And it is not simply Red states vs. Blue states any more. It is a war on the entire political culture, on the
arrogance of politicians, on their slipperiness and lack of principle, on their endless deal making and compromises.

And when the politicians say to the people protesting: 'But we're doing this for you',
that just makes it worse. In fact, that seems to be what makes them angriest of all.

People have taken to the streets to DEMAND to be bankrupted by health care costs.

I blame the Democrats, who couldn't sell female companionship on a troop train.

Confirmed: Americans Stupid


Republican Party. One in two know the Democratic leader of the US Senate.

Health care? Fewer than one in three know that no Republicans voted for the Senate health care overhaul.

Half of Americans don't even know that Stephen Colbert is a comedian.
Only one in three Democrats knew that Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) was the Democratic leader.

We know the Bush White House thought Colbert was a real Republican.
That tells us, maybe more than Katrina, how cluelesss the Bush bastards were.

Subject: Too quick to judge...

Good posts.

But I think you're too quick to be so heavily criticizing Obama...
I think he's playing four quarter football here man.

So why did he refuse to play hard in the first quarter?

I think a calculated, measured approach is perfect for the first part of his presidency.
I agree he should be tougher at times...I hated those times when he'd go soft during the SOTU.
I think he should go more Samel L. Jackson in his tone...people don't fuck with Samuel L...
cause his voice tells you not to fuck with him. He needs more of that.

But dude, talk about back-stabbing Democrats...have some restraint.

Urging my quarterback to get in the game isn't back-stabbing.

I still think he knows what he's doing mostly...he's smart enough to have
a strategy for long-term effectiveness...short term losses, long term gains homie.

History says we're in trouble. Can you name a time when everyone said, 
"Why doesn't the Democrat fight back?" and the Democrat ended up winning?

...but I sure hope you're right.

John Edwards sex tape exists
 Back-stabbing aide says he's seen it


"I think it's a shame people are focusing on this," said the lying back-stabber
"I couldn't have sold as many books without including the sex tape," Young told "GMA."
"We've been offered gigantic amounts of money. And we've said no."

Young didn't say who offered to pay for the video, but it's apparently in demand.
Hunter has a TRO preventing Young from distributing photos and the sex tape, saying they belong to her.

Young told ABC News' Judas Maximus that he "truly doesn't understand" what Hunter is asking for.

"I'm not clear anything she's asking for is hers," Young said.

Why would Edwards videotape his career crumbling?
Or did the bitch use a hidden camera to blackmail him?

Losing Obama's senate seat?


Buoyed by their surprise victory in Massachusetts, Republicans in Illinois sense the Senate seat
he left vacant is ripe for their picking come November elections.

Obama's Democrats have long dominated Illinois politics. But Republicans view Brown's capture of
Teddy's seat as a sign of voter dismay with Democrats in the White House and Congress.

Polls ahead of Tuesday's party primaries in Illinois show Mark Kirk likely to win the Rethug nomination.
Favored to face off Kirk for the vacant seat is Alexi Giannoulias, Illinois treasurer and Obama's buddy.

One poll showed Kirk trailing Giannoulias if the two face off -- but only narrowly.
That's a far cry from the 62 percent that Obama won in his 2004 senate race.

Politically, 2010 is a far cry from 2009, when we won everything.

Ninth Circuit Screws Church of Reality in Pot Decision
 by Marc Perkel


On January 28th, 2010 the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals basically screwed the Church of Reality
issuing a memorandum decision. As the founder of the Church of Reality I’m fairly pissed off about it.
What the courts often do is to clear out the case load by letting law clerks decide cases using memoradum
decisions and signing the judge's name to it. That way the judges only deal with the cases the law clerks find interesting.

This is especially true of cases where the party is doing it themselves and is not a lawyer. They think
that we aren’t smart enough to figure out when we’re getting screwed so they can blow us off easilly.
And usually they are correct, but not with me.

The case is not over. I am going to file a motion for rehearing en banc, and I’m in the process of sending
a letter to the chief judge of the court Alex Kozinski. The letter is to get their attention so that I might get
some due process when they consider it. I need some public attention and public scrutiny to get a real
decision out of the court.

Obama in the Lion's Den
 and he had the lions for lunch


Obama said Rethugs have attacked his health care overhaul so fiercely, "you'd think that this thing was some Bolshevik plot."
His proposals are mainstream, widely supported ideas, he said, and they deserve some GOP votes in Congress.
"I am not an ideologue," the president declared - and nobody challenged him on it.

But Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., pointedly asked Obama: "What should we tell our constituents who know that Republicans
have offered positive solutions" for health care, "and yet continue to hear out of the administration that we've offered nothing?"
Obama showed little sympathy, disputing Price's claim that a Republican plan would insure all Americans without raising taxes.
"That's just not true," said Obama to the live TV cameras.

Republican Uber handjob Mike Pence defended Price on the health care proposals. He said a GOP agenda booklet given to
Obama at the start of the session "is backed up by precisely the kind of detailed legislation that Pelosi and your administration
have been busy ignoring for 12 months." Obama shot back that he had read the Republican proposals and that they promise
solutions that can't be realized.

In another barbed exchange, the president said some Republican lawmakers in the audience had attended ribbon-cutting
ceremonies for projects in their districts funded by the 2009 stimulus package that they voted against. Pence said Obama
was trying to defend "a so-called stimulus that was a piecemeal list of projects and boutique tax cuts." Obama replied,
"When you say they were boutique tax cuts, Mike, 95 percent of working Americans got tax cuts."

"This notion that this was a radical package is just not true," he said.

Last Monday, I wrote:

> Obama should announce that he's going to do three town halls and the only people
> allowed to attend are crazy-ass teabagging handjobs and right-wing Rethug fuckstix.

Thursday, David Axelrod said  “It’s time to put up or shut up.  We will put the other party
to the test and they will have to explain why they are standing in the way.”

Friday, Obama entered the lion's den and it became a highlight of his presidency.
He should read  every day and consider taking my advice.

Mike Pence (Indiana handjob) said "Having TV cameras there might've been a mistake."
Obama confronted the ignorant liars and listed the facts.
That's always a recipe for disaster for the GOP.

Too bad the Democrats do this so rarely.

The Rethugs excuse?
"We didn't really have a chance to get some good questions put together."

After telling your constituents for a year that "Obama wants to destroy America"
you couldn't think of any good questions for The Destroyer?

How the hell can we be losing to these troglodytes?

Obama kissing GOP ass
 OMG!!!   Why can't our president learn?


Obama told Republican leaders Wednesday that he will schedule regular meetings with them
to discuss his agenda, a gesture GOP lawmakers demanded so Obama, as always, caved in.

Democratic leaders and their aides said they did not expect Obama to make such a proposal to the Fascist dogs.
But GOP senators earlier in the day said that Obama had to reach out to Mitch the Bitch (R-KY.) if there was
any hope of them signing on to a scaled-down version of healthcare reform, energy or jobs legislation.

House Republican Leader John Boner (R-Ohio) spread his arms in somewhat ironic embrace
when television cameras turned to him to capture reaction to Obama’s proposal.

Obama acknowledged that Republicans might view his offer skeptically.

“I know you can’t wait,” Obama quipped.

"Up yours, nigger" was Boner's reply.

Subject: question regarding one of your articles

Regarding the article "Statement from Sam Clauder" currently appearing on BartCop.

Where did this statement come from?

I'm curious mainly because on the San Bernardino court website search,
the bail for Mr. Clauder remains unchanged at $25,000.00 and since that entry
was updated on Friday am, presumably shortly after the appearance of Mr. Clauder.

Is the court website wrong?  Was the bail increased by $100,000.00?
Did the "statement" come from Mr Clauder and if so, how---since the court website
says Mr. Clauder remains in custody?

I don't know much about this.
Maybe these days you get one e-mail instead of one phone call?

I'd gotten a dozen e-mails from Sam in the last few months (about CA politics) and when
he wrote that he was being railroaded by a crooked judge (my words) I Googled him and 
saw that he's a Democratic activist and he seemed like he needed some help.

If anyone in Cali is able to help him, I'm sure he would appreciate it.
