  • George Washington wanted Obamacare, Pelosi says [VIDEO]

    George Washington wanted Obamacare, Pelosi says [VIDEO] Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi emerged into the sunlight April 1 to applaud a rush of sign-ups for Obamacare, and immediately described it as the long-sought goal of Gen. George Washington and the nation’s Founding Fathers in 1787. “It is really so heart warming for those of us who worked so hard [to make sure] many more people in our country would have access to healthcare,” she told reporters at the stakeout position just outside the West Wing portico. “There are those critics, bumps in the road, but they’ve only been turbulence. They...

    Look at this:The Diebold GEMS central tabulator contains a stunning security holeSubmitted by Bev HarrisThu, 08/26/2004 Issue: Manipulation technique found in the Diebold central tabulator -- 1,000 of these systems are in place, and they count up to two million votes at a time. By entering a 2-digit code in a hidden location, a second set of votes is created. This set of votes can be changed, so that it no longer matches the correct votes. The voting system will then read the totals from the bogus vote set. It takes only seconds to change the votes, and to date...

    Liberal groups on Monday plan to launch a petition drive, urging President Bush to fire Education Secretary Rod Paige. Paige recently apologized for a remark in which he described the National Education Association as a "terrorist organization." But and another group called Campaign for America's Future are not accepting Paige's apology. "Parents, teachers and students across the country are outraged that the Bush administration is attacking teachers instead of listening to them to ensure a high-quality public education to every child," the groups said in a joint press release announcing the launch of Monday's petition drive. Paige made the...

    Is that boo-hooing I hear coming from Fox News, just across 48th Street from BusinessWeek headquarters in New York? Well, maybe I'm hearing things. But it sure is heart-warming to imagine Fox's supersized boss Roger Ailes and his fair-and-balanced band blubbering from the slap in the face a federal judge delivered to them recently. Fox had sued left-wing comedian and political satirist Al Franken for using the words "fair and balanced" in the title of his new book, Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right. The network that has wrapped itself,...

    turned on the tube this morning and there was Stephanopoulos lecturing (or rather, attempting to lecture) Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on “honesty”. Ok, now I’ve seen it all. On the up side: Stephanopoulos’ ‘news’ (another lie) propaganda program’s ratings are in the toilet. A few years back, Congressman Barney Frank (admitted buggery aficionado who reportedly had his male lover running a prostitution ring for boys out of Barney’s apartment) lectured on the House floor about morality. Then the Big Liar Himself, Bill Clinton lectures on lying; his partner in crime, Mrs. Clinton, publishes the Big Book of Lies (Living...

    Hillary Clinton, junior Senator for New York, is surrounded by people. She walks into the Ritz in London in the midst of six huge security guards, two press secretaries and a selection of other folk who seem to know what they are doing while appearing to do nothing much really. "We're going in the lift, Senator," says a short man very slowly to Hillary Clinton, as if she has a mental age of seven. "And then we can get you some tea." "Your room's on the fifth floor," says a woman wearing pink high heels. Later on she tells me...

    SHE is not standing for president, but Senator Hillary Clinton’s reluctance to be drawn into the 2004 race for the White House has not stopped her becoming a prime target in President George W Bush’s rapidly accelerating campaign for re-election. Republican strategists last week launched a new fundraising appeal that singled out Clinton’s “ambition and prolific fundraising” as the main danger to the party’s majorities in both the Senate and the House of Representatives. In an apparent attempt to exploit conservative disgust with the success of Clinton’s newly published autobiography, Living History, Republicans are warning that neither Bush’s re-election nor...

    The debate is one of the nastiest I've seen on the floor of the House of all time--Nancy Johnson (R-CT) seems to be taking the brunt of the vicious attacks (and I do mean vicious) from the Democrats. Jim McDermott (D-WA) just said the Republicans can't be trusted on prescription drugs because WMD have not been found in Iraq (he mistakenly said "Iran" first, at which time the Republican members took the opportunity to laugh hysterically at him). Called Bush a liar, at which time the Chair ordered him to sit down. Billy Tauzin (R) followed up by saying "It...

    <p>Wherever Administration Moderator went, he was greeted by huge, enthusiastic crowds of cheering people – people as far as the eye could see - reaching out to Administration Moderator and he reaching back at every opportunity. Administration Moderator has got the right stuff, he loved being with the FReepers and the FReepers loved being with Administration Moderator. There is a genuine connection between the Moderator and his message and the FReepers. Administration Moderator could capture the presidency in 2004!</p>

    Through the federal government, President Bush has been able to declare WAR in a "foreign" country. Unlike Viet Nam, Bush jump started the war with Iraq. With all of this diversion going on, WHY doesn't the media report on the real truth? That being that the de facto unlawful government state of Hawaii isn't a "STATE" at all and never has been. The fraud, lie and coverup has been all along that Hawaii has been militarily occupied for the past 110 years. There lives today 274 men/women that are of the true nationality of being Hawaiian. They never signed the...

    How do you know if you're a Democrat? If you've ever met someone down on his or her luck, and you wanted to help, then you're a Democrat. If you have ever seen the look in a child's eyes of fear, of hunger, or of aspiration, and wanted to help, then you're a Democrat. If you have ever wanted leadership that had common sense, that cared about the future, and that wanted progress over partisanship, then you're a Democrat. If you believe that we are better off working together than apart, then you're a Democrat. If you believe in community,...

    Filibusters Are Unconstitutional -- Say Noted Democrats In the past, prominent Democrats have said that filibusters are unconstitutional. However, now that they are blocking President Bush's appointments, they apparently see no problem with using unconstitutional means to punish the President. Prominent Democrats have frequently asserted that the use of filibusters is unconstitutional. They've changed their tune now that they're the minority party in the Senate. Apparently any unethical means is okay as long as it blocks President Bush's judicial nominees. Notice what these Democrats have said in the past about filibusters: Senator Joe Lieberman on January 4, 1995: "The filibuster...
  • ZOTTT! Ten reasons to read "The Clinton Wars"

    Sidney Blumenthal's "The Clinton Wars" has been serialized by Salon. Here are ten reasons why you should watch Salon's "commercial" and then read the installments. All of them (one, two, three, four, five). 1. He related a conversation he had had with Senator Alan Simpson, the Republican from Wyoming, who was retiring. "You know there's nothing wrong that Hillary and I did in Whitewater," Clinton told him. "Of course," Simpson replied. "We all know there's nothing there. It was just politics. And it just got out of hand." 2. Chief Justice Rehnquist...had been chilly and inexpressive toward the president throughout...
