Subject: Sen. Domenici Latest GOP Stalwart To Break With White House on War

The Demos are going to keep screwing around with This Iraq mess and the repugs are going to steal the ball.

To blow that spin to smithereens
You don't need a big destroyer:
How can they hate Rich so much
When Scooter was his lawyer?

To help the administration make charges not stick
He secretly was leaking to lawyers for Tricky Dick.

But he has parlayed his role back then into our time
As a by-the-book rough guy who's tough on crime.

Norman Solomon: A Bloody Media Mirror

by Norman Solomon

Many of America's most prominent journalists want us to forget what they were saying and writing more than 4 years ago to boost the invasion of Iraq. Now, they tiptoe around their own roles in hyping the war and banishing dissent to the media margins.

by Linda Milazzo

Today I received an in-depth blog entry from Danny Schechter (The News Dissector), reporting from Durbin, South Africa where he's screening his film, "In Debt We Trust." This was the second blog entry Danny has sent from South Africa in a little over a week. The blog was typical Danny. Not a superficial account of the customs and terrain. Not a self-indulged travelogue on the effects of the environs on "me." You don't get that from Danny. He's not about sensory conjecture. He's about facts. He's a journalist. He doesn't write. He reports.


Sad, but it was an easy prediction right after Katrina. People just had to look at Iraq and know what would happen to New Orleans by this treasonous and criminal Bush GOP government. It doesn't matter where the tragedies occur or even if they are caused directly or indirectly by this US government ... the Bush GOP couldn't care less about people ... their job is to ransack this government as well as Iraq.

The other day I came out of my short retirement due to yet another Bush flagrant abuse of power. We decided that we would walk from Atlanta to DC to gather a people's movement for humanity. The longer BushCo are in office, the less chance we have of recovering the heart and soul of our nation, saving our soldiers and the people of Iraq and Afghanistan, and saving the planet from corporate and individual waste and pollution. Impeachment, removal from office, and in a perfect world, incarceration for the criminals against humanity, are urgent and necessary steps that need to be taken today.

Will Durst: Boss Dick

Written by
Alright, I got a message for the American public, and the message is this: leave Dick Cheney alone. He's not answerable to you. Get off his big white furry butt. You are not the boss of him. Nobody is the boss of him. Dick Cheney is the boss. Of you, me, Bush. Nouri Al-Maliki. Gitmo. All of us. He's Boss Dick. And the only reason you're out to get him is because when he smiles, he looks like he swallowed a small black child. And that is just prejudiced, people. Doesn't matter that he's keeping this country safe. And the only two ways to do it are his way and the highway. Well, actually, under the highway. Sometimes as part of the highway. Mixed in with the rebar.

Cindy Sheehan: Call Out the Instigator

by Cindy Sheehan

Call out the Instigator
Because there's something in the air
We got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here
You know it's right!
