A BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW

Someone who is deeply linked to the Christian right, and to the current Administration, has turned around and started what has become the world's most powerful private mercenary army. These guys are like neo-Crusaders. To have them on the government payroll to the tune of $750 million, operating in a Muslim country, should be frightening to everyone who understands that.

Romney Fundraiser Funded Hitler Ad

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

DNC Press

Washington, DC - It's been quite a week for smooth talking Mitt Romney. First he ignites a firestorm by quoting Fidel Castro in Miami. Now one of his leading fundraisers is linked to a campaign ad featuring Adolf Hitler. According to campaign finance records, Romney backer John Rakolta was one of the primary funders of a Michigan group responsible for hate-filled ads targeting Governor Jennifer Granholm in last year's election. The ads, purchased by a group called Voice the Vote, featured images of Hitler and a swastika alongside Governor Granholm and Democratic Presidents Clinton, Carter, Johnson, and Roosevelt. Rakolta, who serves as Romney's national finance co-chair and the co-chair of his Commonwealth PAC, and his wife each gave $5,000 to Voice the Vote last year. (Detroit Free Press, 3/14/07)

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

We know the fired U.S. Attorneys were booted for political reasons, but at this point there is simply no way to know exactly what those reasons were. For example, several possible explanations are floating around surrounding the ouster of ex-San Diego prosecutor Carol Lam. Here's a few:

BuzzFlash,  

So what, if the Bush GOP White House replaces Gonzales with another Bush loyalist? That's the same as the difference between a gangster and a mobster or a liar and a perjurer. This government will never be cleaned up until the whole Bush GOP White House is brought to account and every GOP supporter is replaced in this Congress. Then, and only then, will the treachery, corruption and stab-in-the-back, double crossing, Judas kissers of US democracy be put out and this country just might survive. (Does Bush still talk to God, I wonder, or are the lines down?)

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

George W. Bush would make a horrible poker player: you can read the guy like a book. His composure during speeches betrays precisely what he is thinking (or, in most cases, not thinking).

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Somehow I am circumspect in believing that the same man who couldn't identify and distinguish earth bound foreign leaders in an interview, now claims that "God" talks to him! Is he quite sure it's God, or could the entity that's telling him to go and fight wars that kill innocent human beings, possibly be the one with horns and a tail??? Is it possible that in his ignorance George Bush has mistaken "the who" of his hallucinations?

Maybe Dick Cheney was right: we are in the "last throes of the insurgency" - but not the "insurgency" he was talking about.

When pilot-boy George landed on the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln, which was moored a few miles from San Diego on May 1, 2003, he declared an "end" to major combat in Iraq. Imagine, even after all of the havoc already wreaked in Iraq, how relieved I, a mother of a soldier, was. Little did I know how much more havoc George still had up his sleeve.

On Friday night, I was doing my usual channel surfing when I came across a rebroadcast of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. And Patti Smith was thanking the people who stood by her all these years and singing her heart out.
