It's not about being liberal or conservative anymore y'all. That is a hype offered by the fascist whores who want to confuse the people with lies while they turn this country into an aristocratic police state. Some people will say anything to attain power and money. There is no such thing as the Liberal Media, but the Corporate media is very real.

George Stephanopoulos on Foley

Click here.

This video gets at all the issues involved in the 2006 election. Watch as Republican flack Adam Putnam lies and slanders and brings up irrelevant points in order to justify Republican corruption and shame.

DCCC Chairman Rahm Emanuel was scheduled to debate RCCC Chairman Thomas Reynolds on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos. Entangled in the Foley page scandal himself, Reynolds ducked the debate, sending Rep. Adam Putnam in his stead.

Thanks to for the video.

Nuclear Power is not the Answer

Click here for an essay about "Why Nuclear Power is Not the Answer", by Dr. Helen Caldicott who is a professor at the University of Melbourne in Australia. I just ordered her book, Nuclear Power is Not the Answer to Global Warming or Anything else

I will not quote the entire article, but the 2nd paragraph does give you an instant reason for the insanity of the nuclear power industry:

Nuclear power is not “clean and green,” as the industry claims, because large amounts of traditional fossil fuels are required to mine and refine the uranium needed to run nuclear power reactors, to construct the massive concrete reactor buildings, and to transport and store the toxic radioactive waste created by the nuclear process. Burning of this fossil fuel emits significant quantities of carbon dioxide (CO2)—the primary “greenhouse gas”—into the atmosphere. In addition, large amounts of the now-banned chlorofluorocarbon gas (CFC) are emitted during the enrichment of uranium. CFC gas is not only 10,000 to 20,000 times more efficient as an atmospheric heat trapper (“greenhouse gas”) than CO2, but it is a classic “pollutant” and a potent destroyer of the ozone layer.

And further on in the article...
How exactly is electricity generated? In the case of hydropower (which accounts for 7% of the electricity generated in the United States) the momentum of falling water is converted into electricity. For most of the remaining 93%, coal (50%), natural gas (18%), nuclear power (20%), and oil (2%) are used to produce immense amounts of heat. The heat boils water, converting it to steam, which then turns a turbine, generating electricity. So, in essence, a nuclear reactor is just a very sophisticated and dangerous way to boil water—analogous to cutting a pound of butter with a chain saw. At the moment, hydro provides 7%,and unfortunately wind is only 2% of the total U.S. mix, while solar is less than 1%. Globally, coal supplies about 64% of the world’s electricity, hydro and nuclear each provide 17%,and renewable sources again make up 2%.

Foley stalked male teenager pages for nearly a decade

Click me

Stalking teenagers is billions of miles different from having consensual sex. The corporate media has been decent on this story, but some rabid meat eaters have brought up incidents when a 17 or 18 year old page was having an affair with a Congressman. One Democratic Congressmen, Gerry Stubbs, had a consentual homosexual affair with a 17 year old page in 1973, when Congressmen Stubbs was 27. This came to light in 1983 when Dan Crane, Republican from Indiana was busted having an affair with a 17 year old female since 1980 ( the affair came to light right after the 1982 elections.) In order to save their own ass, Republicans did then what they are trying to do now, they dug deep and found that in 1973 Gerry Studds, Congressmen from Massachusetts had a homo-sexual affair with a 17 year old male page. This is why Studds was added to the 1983 censure motion for an act that occurred in 1973.

Another incident occurred in 1990 when gay Congressman Barney Frank had an affair with a man named Steven Gobie. According to the Boston Globe,

Back in 1985, Frank had engaged the services of a male escort named Stephen Gobie, who had advertised his "hot bottom" in a personal ad. Over the next two years, while Frank was trying to decide whether to come out, he and Gobie carried on a clandestine affair, during which time Frank hired Gobie as a driver despite knowing Gobie was on probation for drug possession and for possession of child pornography. Frank used his House privileges to fix Gobie's parking tickets. He wrote a memo trying to clear Gobie from probation that was disingenuous at best and an outright deception at worst. Gobie repaid Frank by running a prostitution service out of Frank's Capitol Hill apartment. When Frank discovered this, he fired Gobie and ended their relationship. Then, in 1989, just two years after Frank's announcement that he was gay, Gobie told his story to the conservative Washington Times.

  1. Gerry Studds

  2. Dan Crane

  3. Barney Frank (scroll about 60% down for the 1990 incident)

Irregardless of the propriety of these human errors, having consensual sex is different than allowing a sexual predator to have free reign by the Republican leadership from 2004 - 2006. Stalking many young boys over eight years is vastly different than having a consentual affair, or being taken advantage of by one's lover.

Naughty emails?

"Do I make you a little horny?"
-- email from Senator Mark Foley (R-Florida) to a 16 year old page.

Keep in mind that he was text-messaging this kind of stuff while on the very floor of the Senate.

Inform yourself at .

Oh. My. God.

From Forbes magazine

The House page scandal engulfing former Rep. Mark Foley and House Republican leaders enters its sixth day with Speaker Dennis Hastert working to hold onto his job and the GOP rank and file worried that the pre-election drip, drip of damaging political news isn't over yet.

The daily disclosures about Foley's salacious Internet exchanges with former teenage congressional pages have GOP lawmakers and conservative activists fearing the foibles of other politicians may be exposed.

"People are very, very concerned," Rep. Ray LaHood, R-Ill., said Tuesday night. "I think there are going to be more disclosures."

"We have heard rumors that other, similar activity has occurred involving additional congressmen and will be released prior to the November elections," said the Arlington Group, a coalition of 70 pro-family conservative groups.

Whoa-ho-ho-hoe. You mean there was more than one Congressman stalking the teenage boys?

Wait, now what was Clinton impeached for?

A letter from Kirk Fordham

A statement released by Kirk Fordham, former senior aide to ex-Rep. Mark Foley and Rep. Tom Reynolds

from CNN

"I've learned within the last few hours that unnamed sources have purported that I intervened on behalf of Congressman Foley to prevent a page board investigation. This is categorically false. At no point--ever--did I ask anyone to block any inquiries into Foley's actions or behavior.

These sources know this allegation is false.

Having stepped down as Mr. Reynolds chief of staff, I have no reason to state anything other than the facts. I have no Congressman and no office to protect.

I intend to fully cooperate with any and every investigation of Mr. Foley's conduct. At the same time, I will fully disclose to the FBI and the House Ethics Committee any and all meetings and phone calls I had with senior staffers in the House Leadership about any of Foley's inappropriate activities.

The fact is, even prior to the existence of the Foley email exchanges I had more than one conversation with senior staff at the highest levels of the House of Representatives asking them to intervene when I was informed of Mr. Foley's inappropriate behavior.

One of these staffers is still employed by a Senior House Republican Leader.

Rather than trying to shift the blame on me, those who are employed by these House Leaders should acknowledge what they know about their action or inaction in response to the information they knew about Mr. Foley prior to 2005."

Watch closely. The jackals will fall over themselves accusing one another of what they all have done.

Sick, hypocritical, lying bastards

Question: How many Republicans does it take to help a teenager across the street?

Answer: All of them, but that doesn't mean the kid ever gets to the other side in one piece.

Sick, hypocritical, lying bastards.

Another hired liar I have to expose

Meet Mr. Larry Elder

From Mr. Elder's published words, where he actually tries to defend the ABC docu-drama that was caught flagrantly rewriting history for political reasons :

click here

In one scene, for example, then-National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice demotes counterterrorism czar Richard Clarke, clearly showing the Bush administration's failure to give bin Laden top priority. But did anyone in the Bush administration send letters to ABC demanding revisions – or else?

No, Mr. Elder, they didn't write letters, because Condi did demote Richard Clarke. That was true. It actually happened. Whereas, the letters written by Clinton and Madeline Albright to ABC involved multiple matters that not only did NOT happened, but were ALSO dishonest.


And how come you forgot to mention that ABC was paid to air the docu-drama via some clearinghouse Christian far-right non-profit organization -- which got donations from who....? How come Mr. Elder forgets to mention that the director of the film is part of a naisient organization that wants to produce docu-dramas that spin history in favor of their partisan constituency? These matters are certainly more relevant than any of Mr. Elder's faux line of questioning posing as matters of real signifigance.

But you see, Mr. Elder specializes in the art of selective memory. This is what he does. Here he also "neglects" to remind his reader's of a very key point about Condolezza Rice. She did not want to testify before the commission. However she had no problem going on various television shows where she made false statements without having to go under oath. This obvious hypocrisy forced her to have to give in and testify under oath in front of the commission, where she blatantly tried to filibuster and side track the questioning process until she was asked point blank what the name of the August 6 PDB was : "Osama determined to attack in the United States."

And this when she was mouthing publically that the administration "had no idea that bin Laden intended to attack the United States."

Bush may not have written letters to ABC, but he certainly has distorted the written law and has used back handed tactics to get the same deeds done. Appointed government hacks interpret and rewrite the laws into federal codes, as happened when "waste" was redefined by an ex-lobbyist for the coal mining industry so they could illegally dump waste from mountain tops down streams.

Or government agencies who put together fake news reports with administration hacks posing as reporters. These get disbursed to friendly (aka Fox News) news media, who add the videos to their news feed WITHOUT MAKING A DISCLAIMER THAT THE VIDEOS ARE FROM THE GOVERNMENT.

What, are we in Russia?

When the Swift-boat group was proven to be linked to the Bush administration by a lawyer who had been on the Bush legal team since Florida 2000, where was the media on this story? Instead, we had to worry about Janet Jackson's breasts or Michael Jackson or a missing white girl in Aruba? If this had been Kerry instead, the TV news media would have been on the story like a rabid dog.

If you read Mr. Elder, you have to remember that he is only selecting some of the history, and he also distorts what he reveals as the historical record all the time. This is what he is hired to do.

Most of the piece from the link is spent trying to find some way to accuse Clinton of something. Mr. Elder even tactfully admits this when says "OK, the Clintonistas criticize conversations or actions that never took place" Then he negates the substance of the letters to ABC by going back to the WTC bombing attempt of 1993. Then he condenses the next 8 years into 3 specious paragraphs, the latter two are crafty edits from the 9-11 commission report. Especially paragraph 3, which reads as follows:

Also (page 358): "Responsibility for domestic intelligence gathering on terrorism was vested solely in the FBI, yet during almost all of the Clinton administration the relationship between the FBI director and the president was nearly nonexistent. The FBI director would not communicate directly with the president. His key personnel shared very little information with the National Security Council and the rest of the national security community. As a consequence, one of the critical working relationships in the counterterrorism effort was broken."

Bottom line, the Clinton administration treated terrorism as a law enforcement matter. And neither he nor former members of his administration want Americans to understand or remember this. In his Saturday radio address after the first World Trade Center attack, Clinton barely mentioned the attack before beginning a much lengthier discussion about his economic program.

In addition to being hotly debated by officials at CIA and FBI, isn't it funny how Mr. Elder neglects to mention that the Bush Administration appointees to the FBI ignored the very intelligence operations that were getting reports on terrorists at flight schools? Keep in mind also that George W. Bush issued an executive order to the FBI to stop their investigation into the WAMI charity operations of the bin Laden family. And on September 12th, when all air traffic was grounded in the United States one plane went around the country and picked up various bin Laden or Saudi persons and quietly escorted them out of the country without any questioning or interoggation whatsoever.

And yea, Clinton treated the problem effectively as a law enforcement matter. How many American lives and civilian lives were lost? The African embassies, Somalia, and the USS Cole were events half-way around the world. The Cole was also within 10 miles from the coast of Iran. If spirited pirates-vagabonds- terrorists want to attack our naval ship, what is the point of raising the patriotic ire when perhaps it is our foreign policy that gives rise to these attacks in the first place? How many Iranian naval (or Chinese Naval or Russian Naval) ships do we allow to do military surveillance operations at less than 10 miles off the coast? What do you think the Cole was really doing? Yep, the Cole was most likely attacked because it was coordinating spy surveillance operations in Iran.

The terrorist networks are stateless. They are like mafia. Bombing and invading nations involves wrecking havoc on societies and people that create willing soldiers for terrorist networks, in addition to creating a bureaucracy of corruption.

But it was never about "terrorism" anyway. It was always about oil and winning elections.

The real bottom line is that Mr. Elders does as he is hired to do. He has the belief system of a sewing machine, that is he sews in the direction the seamstress decides.
