Subject: Congress.org website bias
I first participated in this "poll" months ago when it showed up on the congress.org website. Since day one and for many weeks following, almost all states showed Kerry far ahead -- except 3 or 4.Then, over one weekend, every state showed Bush far ahead. I e-mailed congress.org and complained their poll is tainted, and unfortunately very misleading, and could negatively impact Kerry supporters. They responded that it appeared a large Republican organization had e-mailed its members to all cast votes for Bush. YOU ARE THE ONE SOURCE I CAN THINK OF THAT COULD GET THE WORD OUT TO OUR PEOPLE TO GO TO THE SITE AND PLEDGE THEIR VOTE. THANK YOU.
Subject: Fear and Loathing
Upon reading about the brouhaha concerning the Online-ad featuring images of Hitler on the BuSh-cheney website, I decided to take a look at both major party candidates' sites. Here are my conclusions:
Shock and Awe are alive and well. I found it fascinating, though not surprising the candidate who has tried to make pessimism his central theme would sport a site overloaded with messages designed to frighten voters. "John Kerry will raise taxes....John Kerry will be soft on crime and terrorism...John Kerry will..." There are no fewer than four images of John Kerry on just the front page of GW's site. Such fear and loathing. What I found scant evidence of was any reference to actual accomplishments of the BuSh-cheney administration much less a plan to take this nation forward. Does no news pundit find it strange it is so hard to find a link to an actual Pro-BuSh ad? Only negative, which I imagine to be synonymous with pessimism.
By contrast, John
Kerry's site exudes confidence and optimism. Other than small text links
to the blog and the dBunked portion of the site, reference to the failings
of GW and crew were few and far between. What was evident was a plan for
American health care, fighting poverty, helping restore the environment and
hope for improving America's image abroad. The site highlights the American
people and their spirit, not the ego of the candidate. I find no images of
BuSh-cheney on the front page. The ads linked were ads defining John Kerry
and outlining proposals for domestic and foreign programs.
Subject: War Crimes
As long as the taxpayers are footing the bill for this trial of Saddam, why not try Bush at the same time, and save a few bucks? Sounds good to me. To Andy Grainger of London, Ont., Canada, who said we should send voting officials up to Canada.....Andy, at least your votes in Canada count, and you don't have people trying to 'fix' the election like they try to do in the US...just hang in there.

Subject: Tim's last kill
What a heart-wrenching article...so well written. I am amazed that that mother had the presence of mind to do it. It was a story that progressed to the end, so telling. My granddaughter is that kind of "Patriot," and it likely is not going to be so much as Tim. She cannot be sent back for a year...but will likely be sent into Bosnia or Korea as peace keeping. She is trying to get certified as a translater in Bosnia, she speaks some...and they have advised her to do that.
The story of Tim's demise into the hatred of this administration is what is troubling. When I think that I got an ulcer one year ago...thereabouts...because I just could not keep my mouth shut about George Bush's administration....I just have learned!!!
When someone you love looks you in the eye and says, about Bill Clinton, my favorite president, that "He should have been hung in the White house," I only hope that God does not choose to take his daughter, just to show him the way.
Sorry, but I am convinced that the right wing of this country is, at this time, the most corrupt people on the face of the earth.!! What Cheney did would have gotten a Democrat impeached!! There are some good signs, though. Today...the ad for Fahrenheit is all over the entertainment page...before it was about a one inch by two inch ad. Now, the other theatres are getting onto it...and of course, they want a piece of the action...they want some of that money that this movie is bringing in...what Idiots!!
I have also been seeing many, many more 'Kerry for President' signs...in yards and on bumpers...I have one up on my fridge door...and did not get shot for that, so I will put one on my car.I am making progress, I am getting bolder in my Democratic party...and their love of country...Oh, I know, they are all politicians, but I have never known a Democratic president who did not go through proper channels. This one gave all their corrupt friends 'no bid' contracts to build up, what they had our troops tear down! What a business!! And as Fahrenheit explains...the scene where Al Gore was presiding over the senate...he gave no one a chance to even get their sentence finished...you see, in a sense, Al Gore sort of propagandized the Bush adm. Everyone was just too eager to see that Bush made it, that we showed no jealousy...they kept telling us to get over it...Bush won...we lost.....get with the program.
Well, we didn't ...and I never would...even through the illness of an ulcer...and the watching what the idiot chimp said every day...I watched...I wanted to be informed. And I was...as I said, in the movie...none of Bush's speeches surprised me...I had seen them all. The way they tied it together with the oil companies of Bush and Cheney did surprise me...that, my friends is the connection! I even watched him say Nu ku lar, in one speech about 5 times...that was hard!!!
We must win this fight!!! We just must!
I will see Fahrenheit again...it was worth it, and there is a lot revealed that I never knew.
Subject: One Way the Right Wins Elections
Return with me now to those innocent days of yesteryear.
It is election day in November of 1962. We are in Phoenix, Arizona, where a young former Supreme Court clerk is doing his unlevel best to see that Barry Goldwater is elected president. The young man, William H. Rehnquist, Esq., has been director of "ballot security" operations for the local Republican Party since 1958. On this day, he is the sole Republican official at a polling station in south Phoenix, which is overwhelmingly African-American, Hispanic, and Democratic.
same day in Phoenix, another young lawyer, James J. Brosnahan,
is sitting in the office of the United States Attorney in Phoenix.
Mr. Brosnahan, a graduate of Harvard Law School, is an assistant
Mr. Brosnahan is dispatched, along with an FBI agent, to investigate these charges of voter intimidation. Mr. Brosnahan's sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1986 follows:
Let's be fair, though. After all, Little Billy Rehnquist has come a long, long way from those early days in Arizona. It is 2,300 miles from south Phoenix to Washington.
Subject: RE Afternoon buzz Bush Cartel Censors Saddam Testimony!
Jennings (ABC) did air the quote and many more last night. It was
kind of amazing. Saddam pretty much ran the show. The judge
didn't have much to say. ABC showed about 7-10 minutes of it --
all with sound. I'm sure there was much left out, but they definitely
aired Saddam saying: "Everyone knows that this is a theatrical
comedy by Bush, the criminal, in an attempt to win the election."
Subject: Re Our Man in Iraq
In 1984 the Reagan administration's plan to ignore the will of Congress and crush the duly elected Sandinista government in Nicaragua was in full swing. Money was coming in from the sale of arms to Iran, the CIA was training death squads to kill anyone who opposed the Reagan agenda, and someone had to coordinate those efforts. That someone was John D. Negroponte
Negroponte is charged by human rights groups with running political cover for the CIA sponsored Honduran Intelligence Battalion 3-16. Battalion 3-16, led by General Luis Alonso Discua Elvir, a graduate of the School of the Americas, was directly responsible for the disappearance of thousands of Nicaraguans who did nothing more than resist a foreign overthrow of their chosen leaders.
The reason American progressives/populists keep losing is that they fight as "nice guys," and in the immortal words of Leo Durocher, "nice guys finish last." American fascists do not fight as nice guys. They fight to win, any way they can. Lies, intimidation, slander, bribery, betrayal -- anything and everything that "wins" because they know that above all, Americans love "winners." As the actress Elizabeth Taylor has put it: "There's no deodorant like success." The right wins as the left whines.
Subject: Bill Moyers' 7/2/04 PBS show "Now"--You must get people to read transcript...
This is a copy of an e mail I sent to John Kerry -- then I remembered you really need to direct people to this show or a transcript of it -- it is totally mind blowing...
oh my goodness. on pbs "Now" with Bill Moyers, Frank Luntz (the man put the words in the mouth of Bush administration), is spewing out his secrets to the interviewer. You must watch or get a transcript of July 2, 2004 "Now" with Bill Moyers on PBS. Here is the website: http://www.pbs.org/now/transcript/transcript327_full.html -- this will help you. Also, they did a piece on Congress' raises that are automatic -- and all the health care everyone gets, yet soldiers have a charity food bank on base -- and so many people have no healthcare. It is weird to know that congress is paying 235.48 dollars a year for a family of four-- and that each of you make over 150,000 a year-- and your pensions...unreal. This really needs to be fixed. And congress is trying to help corporations lower their companies' pension funds. What is this? You all get a raise automatically every year and your pensions go up every year. SPEAK OUT NOW....

Thank God not all of them are buying it.
Subject: Election MonitoringThere is a petition circulating right now requesting that the Carter Center monitor the coming election. Also, I heard from Michael Savage's radio broadcast today that two U.S. Senators (or Representatives) are requesting that the U.N. monitor the election, also. I don't know who the senators are, but I'm sure the story will never find the light of day in the mainstream press. Am including the text of the petition along with the URL. At the time I signed it there were only 102 signatures, so we could use some help.
Subject: "Bob" NovakDear Buzz,
Watching Crossfire on CNN today, and there was further proof that the right-wingers are cracking up...Paul Begala caught Novak in a lie --Novak recently said that Bill Clinton was responsible for deaths in the Whitewater affair...Novak denied the quote, Begala had the exact quote at hand, Novak lost it live on air, because he was caught in his lie. Just like O'Reilly with Franken, Cheney with Leahy, etc. Novak didn't say "go fuck yourself," he was shaken however. Accountability is creeping up on these amoral butchers, and they ain't likin' it! By the way, I want to thank you for turning me on to the writings of George Lakoff via your links to his articles at Alternet.org. His books on metaphorical thinking in the US on politics, etc., incl. his book "Moral Politics," are brilliant...really help to understand how and why the "conservatives" end up thinking and saying the destructive nonsense they do. We liberals would do well to understand these nutjobs better so as to better beat them in elections! Would be great if you did another interview with Mr. Lakoff, for instance, about the way Repubs use the language of extreme "strict father family" morality to manipulate voters and impose authoritarian Repub rule. Thanks again. Cheers,
Subject: Katherine Harris is on the Florida Felon List!So it seems that one Katherine S. Harris of Bradford County, Florida, is on the list of people to be purged from the voting rolls. This person is almost certainly not the former Florida secretary of state who stage-managed the 2000 election coup. Her name just happens to be very similar to someone on the list, and so I am sure that there is no reason to drop her from the Florida voting rolls. However, my sense of irony would be strongly fulfilled if Representative Harris was in fact turned away at the polls like tens of thousands of other people. She could feel the anger of the disenfranchised, and then perhaps she would begin to understand the crime that was committed against our democracy in 2000 and is about to be repeated in 2004.

Another short news item on page E2 of the July 2 Wash. Post. Pentagon Inspector General Joseph Schmitz says no evidence has emerged that Halliburton has been gouging the U.S. government for work to reconstruct Iraq's oil industry and provide services for U.S troops. He says there have been some instances of overcharging and we will...hold people accountable. Do we believe this? I don't.
Subject: Our Pravda Press, by Lonna Gooden VanHorn, June 28, 2004
In her June 27th review of Michael Moore's film, Fahrenheit 9/11, for Newsweek, Eleanor Clift made a comment I find very ironic. She writes: "Moore's film is a cinematic tour de force. It is bitingly funny, and connects the dots in a way most media hasn't dared in terms of who profits from the Iraq war, and who fights it."
In a country which boasts of having a "free" press which feeds the public "news" and "truth" rather than propaganda, WHY should the media be "afraid" to say what Michael Moore said in his movie since it IS factually true?? If it were not true, he would not have dared include it knowing that some very powerful and rich people would sue him for libel. It is only his interpretation of what his facts mean that is open to dispute. Why, then, hasn't the media "dared" to "connect the dots?" Is that not their job? Of whom are they afraid?
Perhaps we should ask Helen Thomas, Joe Wilson, Valerie Plame, or General Shinseki, along with Tami Salicio, the woman who lost her job for daring to photograph the "truth" of the flag-draped coffins returning home from Iraq, and Teresa Chambers, the Park Ranger who told the truth about the sorry state of the budget and staffing for our National Parks (to name only a few) why everyone is so afraid of telling the truth under our current government.
As a kid growing up during the time of Ann Coulter's hero, Joe McCarthy, I was told it was reporters in the U.S.S.R. who didn't "dare" write the truth for fear of punishment. I am sure it would be a shock to most Americans to know that Reporters Without Borders ranks the U. S. as 31st among the nations of the world in the "freedom" of its press, down from 17th place in 2002. The Scandinavian countries remain at the top, and Cuba and Korea hold on to the bottom two slots.
IF any of what is documented in Moore's film had happened under Clinton or Gore, the general public would have known about it almost immediately because Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and the rest of the right-wing propagandists would have yammered about it incessantly on a daily basis.
For the left, it takes a Michael Moore movie.
SOME of what is in Moore's movie may have been touched upon lightly by the mainstream press, but because the left commands almost no voices on mainstream media broadcast sources and their talk shows, and the only priority, now, seems to be ratings and "the bottom line," the general population was not IMMERSED in the stories as they were in the much more important to the welfare of the people of the country and the world stories about Monica Lewinsky or Kobe Bryant.
Walter Cronkite, the most revered broadcast journalist of all time, said the media is no longer giving us the information we need to make informed decisions. The truth of that statement as well as the most searing indictment of what passes for the news these days is borne out by the fact that nearly 70% of Americans believed Saddam Hussein was behind 9/11 because the media did not make it a priority to inform them that the truth was otherwise.
I am one of those who knew virtually all of the facts in Moore's movie because I gave up on the mainstream broadcast news media years ago when it was taken over by events such as the Simpson trial, Princess Di's death, and Clinton's sex life. I now rely on the internet for information, and on C-Span, FSTV and World Link for my television news sources.
Amy Goodman and Democracy Now on FSTV, and "Mosaic" and "Conversations with History" on World Link are among the programs I find most informative. I live in fear Rupert Murdoch will buy up their media outlets and shut them down. Those channels were about the only places one heard any voices of dissent before the war -- voices the public needed so desperately to hear. Voices that, had they been heard by the masses on the mainstream network channels in the run up to war, according to many sources, Phil Donahue was fired for attempting to raise a dissident voice -- might have prevented the expensive tragedy in which we are now engulfed for the sake of what Eisenhower originally wrote was the "military-industrial-CONGRESSIONAL complex." In his worst nightmare, however, Ike would not have believed a United States president would allow his family to profit from a war fought while he was in office, or that our vice-president's former employer would be the primary benefactor of the war and its aftermath, including the building of at least 4 new bases in what General Smedley Butler called "the newly acquired territory." Ike might have envisioned a world in which elements of the military-industrial complex owned the media and the profit-driven media pushed a war that at some level they knew would up their ratings.
Interestingly, Bush, Sr.'s former Carlyle group has now bought up a theater chain! Ike, that true patriot, must not only be turning in his grave, but spinning!!

P.S. It is my opinion that we should be handing out the impeach petitions one can download at www.votetoimpeach.org to people coming out of the Fahrenheit 9/11 movies. Mick Youther wrote an article in the Intervention online magazine in which he said the Republicans should be leading the charge because they could use the same arguments they used for impeaching Clinton. Then he quoted which congressperson said what regarding why Clinton must be impeached. We could hand that article out along with the petition. Carl Bernstein wrote weeks ago that Republicans, IF they cared about their party and its image, should be leading the charge to get rid of the man and the administration that has done so much to damage the image of their party and America both at home and around the world. Move on is sponsoring Fahrenheit 9/11 parties, impeachment petitions would be ACTION!! If my memory is accurate, Bush is now subject to 11 causes for impeachment. It is shameful that Bush and this entire administration has not yet been impeached!
Subject: religious? rightDear Buzz,
the religious leaders and protectors of Christianity and most mainstream Christian denominations, have lost all moral authority and any credibility with their hypocritical support of bush in the face of the republican criminal acts, lies, deception, torture, and greed.instead they stand up for everything unamerican and defend republicans instead of Christianity.
J. V., Buzz fan
Just wondering if anyone at BuzzFlash saw the Peter Jennings news briefing the morning of the Hussein trial. At the close, he said, "Saddam then got up and left the room." When the female anchor (Diane Sawyer?) said, "I'm surprised he would just be allowed to leave the room," Peter's eyes shifted back and forth...I don't know who or what he was looking at, and he pretended not to have heard her. She repeated and his response was totally unrelated to her question/comment. In subsequent broadcasts, the comment was changed to "he was escorted from the room." What's the real story????

Subject: Playing the Waiting GameHi Gang!
I just wanted to put some words of comfort for those still squirming in their seats over the upcoming presidential election.First, you know the oft discussed "October Surprise" folks like to bring up? Don't worry about it.Us democrats, liberals, and folks who finally got our craniums screwed on properly know that every month since last October has been one surprise after another. And none of them have bode well for Shrubya.
Second, aren't you just getting more anxious by the day as the Presidential debates get closer and closer? No amount of coaching is going to help Shrubya when John Kerry pounds him about the facts. Once Shrubya is exposed on national television and we hear all his advisers and surrogates scream about it the next day about how unfair it was to their little boy, America will know just how poor of an excuse for a President he really is.

Subject: michael moore, my hero
Hi, Buzz and fellow Buzzers!!
Wonder of wonders, "Fahrenheit 9/11" has come to Emporia, Kansas! This county is such a Republican swamp that I figured I'd have to wait till September and rent the DVD. But no, the local theater is showing it, right here in front of God and everybody!! I was in the audience last night, and it was a terrific evening. The only thing that really surprised me about the info in the film was how little of it was new to me. I have Buzz to thank for that, since that's where I've been getting most of my news lately (having gotten fed up with Wolf Blitzer after he had Ann Coulter on his show).
Memorable moments: The unidentified congressman who responded to Moore's suggestion (that he put his kids in the military to help in the Iraq effort) with a look that had everybody in the theater laughing. Also, who would have thought John Ashcroft could SING!? I'm a voice teacher, with a doctorate and everything, and I was impressed. Too bad he went to Washington instead of Nashville. All the more reason to impeach him now: After he's thrown out of office and pays his debt to society, he'll have another career ahead of him. After all, having done time is no disadvantage in a country singer. Michael Moore, you The Man!!
Subject: RNC Video
I saw the RNC video that was supposed to compare the Democrats to Hitler, and honestly, if it hadn't been on their site I would have thought it was a BuzzFlash satire. Hitler was juxtaposed with Bush, and the quotes from the Democrats had utterly nothing to do in content or tone with Hitler's rants. And the cheesy music at the end really took the prize!
I don't know who put it together, but it seemed to be saying: see how calm and rational the Dems are compared to George.
Subject: flagging right -- Saturday
It's bare disrespect when Cheney is so unflappably wound tight -- even if he wants to cover-up -- that he tells someone "Go flag yourself." Aren't all the officials in Wash.D.C. already flagged? This whole country is flagged. Have you flagged yourselves? People flag the world around. A flag can be for descendants, as our ancestors gave a flag for us. Seeing it outdoors, on a lawn or in a beautiful garden, undulating on an erect pole, many people who govern their behavior for it salute such a flag. It's so colorful. A warm flag may have red all over it. Some flags are white as immaculate sheets. Black flags are associated with lusty pirate-types. There's short flags and long flags. When people think of a flag, some think of a union jack, some think of the tricolor, or a jolly roger, or a pennant chase, tied ribbons, or a good old glory flag, maybe a southern cross or a northern dipper, and some just like to see stars and stripes. If each of us shared a flag with our close friends and coworkers, or simply spontaneously with someone we just met, indeed, shared our flags between people from every country in the world -- oh, oh, what a good feeling that would give us and what joy and peace. Everyone should flag around, I say. I even see flags inside cars, pressed in some position up against a window maybe moist in the rain and sweaty-beaded, or passing a glance over into a car in the next lane. You just don't know where people like to have a flag. There's a flying flag, an unconnected flag off, you can 'flag this' or 'flag that;' FLAG is just maybe everyone's favorite four-letter F-word. The first letter even looks like the idea of it, F or f, either way. It does seem a bit of an insult for Cheney to say who gets flagged and who doesn't, senator or not. If there's not enough flags in his secret bat-belfry hideaway maybe he needs to get down and be out more joining with people. So yeah, go flag yourself, oh presider in vice. Don't leave the best flag you got laid wrinkled in a lump on the bed, as your boss put it.

Subject: I only hope the media will start getting mad soon...because this is the most blatant manipulation I've heard of yet (and I've heard of a lot). Quote:
According to American journalists present at the 30-minute hearing of Saddam and 11 former ministers at Baghdad airport, an American admiral in civilian clothes told camera crews that the judge had demanded that there should be no sound recording of the initial hearing. He ordered crews to unplug their sound wires. Several of the six crews present pretended to obey the instruction. "We learnt later," one of them said, "that the judge didn't order us to turn off our sound. The Americans lied -- it was they who wanted no sound. The judge wanted sound and pictures." http://news.independent.co.uk/world/fisk/story.jsp?story=537630 http://www.truthout.org/docs_04/070404F.shtml
Subject: An email sent to the Fridley Theatre chain
I have read that the Fridley Theatre chain is not going to be running Michael Moore's new film. I read a quote from the owner saying, "Our country is in a war against an enemy who would destroy our way of life, our culture and kill our people." I would submit that Osama bin Laden has not restricted freedom of speech in America , but the Fridley Theatre chain HAS. Restricting our choices to hear different points of view is NOT preserving freedom. Don't surrender America's values to the terrorists who would take it, help America be the land of the 'free.' Remember that phrase, "I may not like what you have to say, but I will fight to the death to preserve your right to say it!" As a theater owner you are part of that fight, don't surrender to having Osama bin Laden restrict your programming.
Promoting freedom by committing censorship is the start of a sad downward path. Please don't take that path.

Subject: As if there isn't proof enough already...
Under the Halliburton deal, Cheney retained 400,000 unvested stock options that will "vest" in batches over the next three years. That means their value depends on Halliburton's stock price at the time the vested options are exercised. Unlike other holdings, unvested options cannot effectively be put in a blind trust since a trustee cannot do anything with them until after they vest, ethics expert[s] note. In other words, Cheney will be aware that his personal wealth will rise and fall along with Halliburton's stock prices.Maria
