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.

the front page of the french press

on the front page of Le Figaro is this story in french. Here is the first paragraph, translated by me.

"The Afghan population could be retaken by the Taliban if the conditions of life don't change in the next 6 months", warns the ISAF chief of forces [British General David Richards.]

"Afghanistan is on the edge of a razor."

... [and later] "The Afghani's don't want the Taliban but prefer to live an austere and disagreeable life than 5 more years of war."

Lieberman is a liar

Thanks to David Sirota.

CLAIM:

“There were some things Vice President Cheney said about Saddam having nuclear weapons, I never bought that.”

-– Joe Lieberman, Fox Channel 61, 10/8/06 (2:05 in Part 2 of the interview)

FACT:

“Every day Saddam remains in power with chemical weapons, biological weapons, and the development of nuclear weapons is a day of danger for the United States of America.”

-– Joe Lieberman, 8/4/02

FACT:

“We have reason to believe [Iraq] is developing nuclear weapons.”

-– Lieberman, 2/10/02

FACT:

“What’s most frightening, said Lieberman, is that Iraq has chemical and biological weapons, and is rapidly developing nuclear capability.”

-– Hartford Courant, 1/15/02

The E. Coli and the Salinas Valley

According to a story in the New York Times (click here ) the E. Coli outbreak into spinach packages might be due to E. Coli in the irrigated water. This is according to a quote by the President of a company that is recalling packaged Lettuce, or

Executives [of the Nunes Company] ordered the recall after learning that irrigation water may have been contaminated with E. coli, said Tom Nunes Jr., president of the company. The company has not found E. coli bacteria in the lettuce itself, Mr. Nunes said.

"We’re just reacting to a water test only,” Nunes said. “We know there’s generic E. coli on it, but we’re not sure what that means.”

The recall covers green leaf lettuce sold from Oct. 3 to Oct. 6 under the Foxy brand in grocery stores in Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. It was also sold to distributors in those states who may have sold it to restaurants or institutions.

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 Crooksandliars.com 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.

SOURCES
  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.

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?
