Exposing the ugly truth
about the Republican Party's diabolical plot to replace constitutional democracy with an oligarchic
It's the only rational explanation!
Why does the Republican Party zealously pursue policies so obviously counter to the best interests of ordinary Americans?

Taking On Tom DeLay
Since the New Deal, Republicans have been on the wrong side of every issue of concern to ordinary Americans; Social Security, the war in Vietnam, equal rights, civil liberties, church- state separation, consumer issues, public education, reproductive freedom, national health care, labor issues, gun policy, campaign-finance reform, the environment
and tax fairness. No political party could remain so consistently wrong by accident.
The only rational conclusion is that, despite their cynical "family values" propaganda, the Republican Party is a criminal conspiracy to betray the interests of the American people
in favor of plutocratic and corporate interests, and absolutist religious groups.
Why? Because they're evil GOP bastards!

Bush Rx bill just a scam to deceive voters
Tom Oliphant reveals what a scam the Bush Rx bill really is -- focusing on the frequently touted "discount cards." As it turns out, the discounts are for drug suppliers, not the consumers. Why are we not surprised? MORE
Mad cow: profits over public health
Legislation to keep meat from downed animals off American kitchen tables was scuttled -- for the second time in as many years -- as Congress labored unsuccessfully earlier this month to pass a catchall agency spending bill. Now, in the wake of the apparent discovery of the first mad-cow case in the United States, the author of the House version of the cattle provision wants to press the issue anew when Congress returns Jan. 20 from its winter recess. The massive, $373 billion spending bill covering several government agencies is still pending in the Senate. "I said on the floor of the House that you will rue the day that because of the greed of the industry to make a few extra pennies from 130,000 head, the industry would sacrifice the safety of the American people," said Rep. Gary Ackerman, D-N.Y., chief House sponsor. "It's so pound foolish." MORE
USDA refuses to release mad cow records
UPI reports that, although the United States Department of Agriculture insisted the U.S. beef supply is safe after announcing the first documented case of mad cow disease in the United States, the agency for six months repeatedly refused to release its tests for mad cow. The USDA claims to have tested approximately 20,000 cows for the disease in 2002 and 2003, but has been unable to provide any documentation in support of this to UPI, which first requested the information in July. In addition, former USDA veterinarians tell UPI they have long suspected the disease was in U.S herds and there are probably additional infected animals. MORE
Bush administration censors Wesley Clark
In an attempt to prevent any favorable publicity for Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark, Joe Conason reports that "State Department officials have demanded a sealed courtroom, cleared of journalists and other spectators, when Clark appears at The Hague on Dec. 15 and 16. American officials have also shut down the cameras that normally broadcast the Milosevic trial on closed-circuit television and over the Internet. Finally, the transcript will be withheld from reporters and the public for two days while U.S. officials vet Clark's testimony to request the removal of any statement that might somehow endanger American security interests." Just when you thought this administration could get no sleazier… MORE
When pundits are on the payroll
In what may be the tip of the iceberg of journalistic corruption, Joe Conason asks: "How many free passes does George Will get? The conservative pundit tends to wax cranky about the declining standards of modern civilization, but he doesn't seem to believe that old-fashioned journalistic standards apply to him -- and his timid overseers at the Washington Post Co. apparently agree."

Schwarzenegger backs off campaign pledge
It should come as no surprise that California's new governor is now confronting the horrific budget reality in the nation's most populous state -- they're seriously undertaxed. Having pledged not to cut education funding, he now is forced to do just that. And to demonstrate a bit of financial wizardry, Schwarzenegger proposes to borrow $15B. Jeeze, why didn't Davis think of that? MORE
True lies: Gropenator slanders accuser
On the eve of the California recall election, Arnold Schwarzenegger's gubernatorial campaign was responsible for using Los Angeles and national media to perpetrate a dirty trick against a Hollywood stuntwoman after she accused him of groping her. Spurred by a provocative e-mail sent by Schwarzenegger campaign spokesman Sean Walsh, some local and national television and radio personalities broadcast false information that the woman, Rhonda Miller, had a six-page rap sheet of felony arrests and convictions when the truth was she has never been in trouble with the law. The misinformation that she had a criminal record on file in L.A. Superior Court would not be corrected until after the election. MORE
Blackout by big media on FCC ownership regs
As the FCC moved on a plan that would greatly benefit a handful of large media companies, most newspapers and broadcast outlets barely mentioned the issue. When surveyed 72% had heard "nothing at all" about it. The survey also found that the more people did know, the more they tended to oppose what the FCC was doing. In other words, Big Media had an interest in keeping people uninformed. MORE
9/11 investigation chairman: "Attack was preventable"
The chairman of the independent commission investigating the Sept. 11 attacks is saying publicly that 9/11 could have and should have been prevented. "As you read the report, you're going to have a pretty clear idea what wasn't done and what should have been done," said chairman Thomas Kean, former GOP governor of New Jersey. "This was not something that had to happen." Members of the commis-
sion have expressed frustration at their inability to get information from the Bush White House. Kean promises major revelations in public testimony beginning next month. MORE
Christopher Schmitt and Edward Pound reveal in US News & World Report that "For the past three years, the Bush administration has quietly but efficiently dropped a shroud of secrecy across many critical operations of the federal government -- cloaking its own affairs from scrutiny and removing from the public domain important information on health, safety, and environmental matters. The result has been a reversal of a decades-long trend of openness in government while making increasing amounts of information unavailable to the taxpayers who pay for its collection and analysis. Bush administration officials often cite the September
11 attacks as the reason for the enhanced secrecy. But…the initiative to wall off records and information previously in the public domain began from Day 1." It's safe to assume that the reason for such secrecy is to prevent the public from discovering just how bad they're being screwed in favor of Big Money interests. MORE
Was Saddam captured
by the Kurds?
Was Saddam Hussein hiding in his "spider hole" or was he a prisoner? Several news agencies have reported that Saddam had actually been captured by the Kurds -- betrayed by a fellow tribesman whose daughter had been raped by one of Hussein's sons. MORE
America's most decorated
soldier refutes Samarra claims
Retired colonel David Hackworth reports that the highly publicized battle of Samarra, in which the Pentagon claimed 54 "uniformed insurgents" were killed in a firefight with US forces, actually resulted in eight deaths, mostly civilian. Are we repeating the Vietnam syndrome of civilian casualties and inflated body counts? MORE
Zinni: Iraq strategy "screwed up"
That's former Bush administration Middle East envoy and retired marine general Anthony Zinni's assessment. "Iraq is in serious danger of coming apart because of lack of planning, underestimating
the task and buying into a flawed strategy," he says. "The longer we stubbornly resist admitting the mistakes and not altering our ap-
proach, the harder it will be to pull this chestnut out of the fire." MORE
Revealed: How MI6
sold the Iraq war
In a potentially devastating scandal for Tony Blair, it was revealed that the British intelligence service MI6 ran an operation to gain public sup-
port for sanctions and the use of military force in Iraq. The British government confirmed that MI6 had organized Operation Mass Appeal,
a campaign to plant stories in the media about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction. The admission followed claims by Scott Ritter, who led 14 inspection mis-
sions in Iraq, that MI6 had recruited him in 1997 to help with the propa-
ganda effort. He described meetings where the senior officer and at least two other MI6 staff had discussed ways to manipulate intelligence material. "The aim was to convince the public that Iraq was a far greater threat than it actually was," Ritter said. "Stories ran in the media about secret underground facilities in Iraq and ongoing programs (to produce weapons of mass destruction). They were sourced to western intelligence and all of them were garbage." We can assume that a similar strategy was used in the US. MORE
New York Times a
whore for the GOP?
David Podvin's must-read analysis of the New York Times deconstructs the allegedly "liberal" paper's cover-
age of the 2000 election. Writes Podvin, "The most important site in journalism is the front page of The New York Times. More than any other print or electronic source, it is the place that sets the agenda for the reporting of each day's events
at America's media outlets. As a result, The Times is renowned as "The Newspaper Of Record," the most frequently referenced news organization in the world. It is a status that is not currently based on journalistic excellence. Today, The New York Times is just another of the media courtesans that promotes the financial interests of its parent company by servicing the Repub-
lican Party. MORE
House GOP leaders guilty
of bribery on Rx bill
House conservatives opposed to the passage of the Bush prescription drug bill were subjected to some extraordinary cajolery to pass the bill - including bribery. Congressman Nick Smith (R-MI), who is retiring next year and hopes to have his son succeed him, reported that he was offered $100,000 for his son's campaign for a yes vote, and threatened with the funds going to his son's primary opponents if he refused. The Democratic National Committee and two independent groups that work on ethics issues have requested a Justice Depart-
ment investigation into whether the pressure was not just routine Capitol Hill horse-trading but a violation of federal anti-bribery law. The statute in question, Section 201 of U.S. Title 18, bars the offer or promise of anything of value for a decision or action on any "question, cause, suit, proceeding or controversy" pending before a public official.

2003 Evil GOP Bastard of the Year
In the field of GOP bastardy, few can compare with the malevolent influence of the GOP House majority leader. Known as "The Hammer," this Texas power broker maintains tight control of his "peers" through his prodigious fundraising (he apparently lets lobbyists write their own legislation). DeLay can make generous campaign contributions
to members who will vote his party line, and can punish opponents within his own party by financing primary challenges. One suspects even his best "friends" hate him. For a litany of DeLay's offenses against the interests of the American people, read Cheryl Seal's
"The Crimes of Tom DeLay" and visit Taking on Tom Delay.
