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!
News Analysis continued
GOP in 2000, Nader has now announced his intentions of assisting with the re-election (?) of George W. Bush. After four years
of Bush II, Nader's assertion that "there is no difference between the GOP and the Dems" forces one to question either his sanity, or his motivation, or both. MORE

E.J.Dionne: Checks and balances
"Just when they're needed, the usual mechanisms to bring a president to his senses are badly malfunctioning. A Congress of the same party now almost never holds adversarial hearings or holds him accountable, unlike how the Republican Congress treated Clinton. It was strange that, until the Niger-uranium fabrication, the media wrote far more about the spectacular deceptions of Jayson Blair than the more consequential deceptions of George W. Bush. The result: the most radical, messianic and misleading presidency of modern times. Frankly, no one else comes close. It has gotten to the point that President Bush appears to believe that he can do almost anything if he says the opposite: hence "no child left behind," "clean skies law," "healthy forests," and "love the poor" are mantras repeated in the hope that he can bend reality to his will."

RFK Jr. blasts Bush on environment
Flat-earthers within the Bush Administration--aided by right-wing allies who have produced assorted hired guns and conservative think tanks to further their goals--are engaged in a campaign to suppress science that is arguably unmatched in the Western world since the Inquisition. Sometimes, rather than suppress good science, they simply order up their own. Meanwhile, the Bush White House is purging, censoring and blacklisting scientists and engineers whose work threatens the profits of the Administration's corporate paymasters or challenges the ideological underpinnings of their radical anti-environmental agenda. Indeed, so extreme is this campaign that more than sixty scientists, including Nobel laureates and medical experts, released a statement on February 18 that accuses the Bush Administration of deliberately distorting scientific fact "for partisan political ends."

States reeling from Bush's reckless fiscal policy
As a direct result of profligate and irresponsible economic management by the Bush administration and its conservative allies in Congress, state governments face one of the worst fiscal outlooks on record. And working families will pay the price through higher state and local taxes and fewer public services. In a speech sponsored by the Center for American Progress, Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack states, "The costs of bad policies are immediate. We see them in the faces of people we meet every day. These are tough times for states like Iowa. All together, state governments have deficits of $90 billion. It is tough to raise educational standards or keep college affordable
if you have to cut budgets to balance budgets." MORE
Bush endorses U.S. jobs moving overseas
On Labor Day, President Bush said, "I want people to understand that when somebody wants to work and can't find a job, it says we've got a problem in America that we're going to deal with. We want everybody in this country working." But President Bush contradicted himself when the government released a report which "supports the shift of U.S. jobs overseas." When asked about the report and how it contradicts the president's supposed concern about job losses, the president's top economic adviser said, "Outsourcing is just a new way of doing international trade."

Greenspan recommends cuts in
Social Security and Medicare
Bush's economic program has begun to lead to their ultimate goal; the decimation of America's social safety net. Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan warned Congress to take quick action to fix the nation's swollen budget deficit -- including measures that could cut some future Social Security payments -- to avoid even bigger problems for the nation's economy down the road. The central bank chairman also repeated his assertion that recent tax cuts should be made permanent and said cutting spending was a better way to fix the deficit than tax increases. In other words, screw the poor, the sick and the old -- the rich need their tax cuts. MORE
Big news! GOP congressman does the right thing!
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-California, introduced a bill this month to bolster NASA spending on the search for near-Earth asteroids 100 yards or more across. We've long believed that this perilous threat to our species has been foolishly ignored. Is human survival a viable political issue, or is it just too darned expensive? MORE
Is the Bush administration
putting political spin ahead
of national security?
One has to wonder at the motiva-
tions behind recent announcements regarding developments in the war on terror. For instance, on several occassions British Airways flight
223 from London to Washington Dulles has been canceled due
to vague "terrorist threats." If there were serious threats, wouldn't the sensible approach have been to allow all passengers to report to the airport, and then have an intense security sweep of the passengers and their luggage? Announcing the cancellation of the flights in advance would cause any potential terrorists to simply reschedule their terrorist attacks. Similarly, the arrest of an Army National Guard soldier for attempting to make contact with
al Qaeda on the internet has been widely publicized. Again, from a national-security standpoint, wouldn't it have been better to quietly arrest the perpetrator without publicizing the fact that internet surveillance is in effect -- and possibly catching additional collaborators? These incidents force the conclusion that these announcements have more to do with Bush campaign efforts aimed at giving the appearance of progress -- rather than actual progress -- in the war on terror.
Hackworth: Ritter was right
According to America's most decorated soldier, David Hackworth: "Like it or not, Maj. Scott Ritter had it right all along. Most of the rest of us, from the president to his key advisers, such as Cheney, Rums-
feld, Powell, Rice, Wolfowitz and Tenet, to the majority of Congress and to most of the talking heads -- including the pre-Iraq War NBC analyst David Kay, who reported WMDs behind every Iraqi sand dune -- blew it big-time when it came down to the awesome arsenal that Saddam had supposedly squirreled away. Ritter took us all on -- virtually alone, against incredible odds -- stating, "Iraq is not a threat to the U.S." MORE
Pentagon insider blows whistle on Iraq intel manipulation
Only weeks after 9/11, the Bush administration set up a secret Pentagon unit to create the case for invading Iraq. Describing how civilian neocon political operatives in the Pentagon pushed disinformation and bogus intelligence that led the nation to war, retired Lt. Col Karen Kwiatkowski reveals: "It wasn't intelligence -- it was propaganda. They'd take a little bit of intelligence, cherry-pick it, make it sound much more exciting, usually by taking it out of context, often by juxtaposition of two pieces of information that don't belong together."

Bush appoints fox to guard henhouse in Iraq intel investigation
Judge Laurence Silberman has been appointed by President Bush to head the bipartisan commission to investigate Iraq "intelligence failures." According to Ralph Neas, president of People for the American Way, Silberman is "the most parti-
san and most political federal judge in the country… my guess is that he's on there for protection …to pro-
tect the president at all costs and to do what he's done in the past with respect to protecting Republican presidents from scrutiny." David Brock chronicled some of Silber-
man's partisan machinations in the right-wing putsch against Bill Clinton. Kevin Phillips, author of the recent "The Bush Dynasty," reports that, "In the past, Silberman has been more involved with coverups in the Middle East (during Iran-Contra) than with any attempts to unravel them." MORE
GOP skullduggery in
the Sharpton campaign
The notorious GOP operative Roger Stone (who organized the riot staged by GOP congressional staffers during the 2000 Florida recount circus) is both funding and manag-
ing the presidential campaign of Al Sharpton. According to The Village Voice, "Stone played a pivotal role
in putting together Sharpton's ap-
plication for federal matching funds, getting dollars in critical states from family members and political allies at odds with everything Sharpton represents. He's also helped stack the campaign with a half-dozen in-
congruous top aides who've worked for him in prior campaigns. He's even boasted about engineering six-figure loans to Sharpton's National Action Network (NAN) and allowing Sharp-
ton to use his credit card to cover thousands in NAN costs -- neither
of which he could legally do for the campaign. In a wide-ranging Voice interview, Stone confirmed his matching-fund and staffing roles,
but refused to comment on the
House begins bribery
probe on GOP Rx bill
The House ethics committee is conducting an inquiry into whether lawmakers offered bribes or threats on Nov. 22 as they tried to persuade Rep. Nick Smith (R-Mich.) to vote for the Medicare prescription drug bill, which narrowly passed. Smith created an uproar last year when he said GOP leaders offered "bribes and special deals," including contri-
butions for his son's 2004 congres-
sional campaign, if he would vote for the bill. MORE
Cheney's staff focus
of Plame investigation
Federal law-enforcement officials have developed hard evidence of possible criminal misconduct by two employees of Vice President Dick Cheney's office related to the unlaw-
ful exposure of a CIA officer's identity last year. The investigation, which is continuing, could lead to indict-
ments, a Justice Department official said. According to these sources, John Hannah and Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis "Scooter" Libby, were the two Cheney employees. "We believe that Hannah was the major player in this," one federal law-
enforcement officer said. The stra-
tegy of the FBI is to make clear to Hannah "that he faces a real pos-
sibility of doing jail time" as a way to pressure him to name superiors, one federal lawenforcement official said. MORE
"According to a new poll, if the election were held today both Kerry and Edwards would beat George Bush by double digit margins. In fact, the White House is so worried they’re thinking about moving the capture of Osama bin Laden up to next month." Jay Leno
