... Or a Rational Response?
by E. J. Dionne
Washington Post, pg. A19
December 30, 2004

"The year 2003 will be remembered as the time when Democrats decided to fight back against George W. Bush after coddling and even embracing him in 2002. This whiplash will mean some surprising things for 2004."

Bushite betrayal of working America
by Patrick J. Buchanan
appearing on worldnetdaily.com
December 29, 2003

"On Christmas Eve, a story and column in the Washington Post caught the eye. For they tell much about the two Americas we are becoming under George Bush and a Democratic Party that has cut its roots to working America."

The Character Myth
by Renana Brooks
The Nation
December 28, 2003 edition

"Yet Bush remains quite popular by historical standards. Moreover, the task that lies ahead for any Democrat is a daunting one, for a more fundamental reason than what Americans think about Bush's job performance."

War Doesn't Stop for Christmas
by Tommy Ates
December 26, 2003

"The war within Iraq is noticeably different than the "war on terror" promised by the Bush administration. No matter how the story is written, the result remains the same."

Put Aside Your Bickering and Let's Work Together to Defeat Bush!
by R. J. Crane, Editor
Topplebush.com
December 26, 2003

"For the good of the primary goal of beating Bush in 2004 we are asking all of you to stop this incessant grousing over the candidates with purpose of undermining the ones you don't like. We also ask the candidates themselves to stop cannibalizing one another."

How The Ridge Stole Christmas!
by Butler Shaffer
appearing on lewrockwell.com

December 24, 2003

"Mr. Ridge was the principal source of network entertainment as he announced that he was raising the "terror alert" in America from "yellow" to "orange." The upcoming holidays might, he supposed, provide an opportunity for some ill-defined group to attack some possible targets someplace in the homeland he imagines it his province to protect."

Judicial revolt Hope in a hopeless world
by Bryan Zepp Jamieson
December 20, 2003

"In quick succession, two district courts dismantled large elements of the police state that the Republicans seek to impose upon us."

Hussein's fate doesn't justify the war in Iraq
by Leonard Pitts, Jr.
Miami Herald
December 19, 2003

"But it's Lieberman -- and anyone else who thinks Hussein's humiliation validates the Iraq war -- who's in denial."

The Medicare Scam: How Putsch screwed Americans for hundreds of billions -- again
by Bryan Zepp Jamieson
December 16, 2003

"It sounds confusing as all get-out. Medicare will pay 75% after $250 has been spent, up to $2,250. After that, there's a "window" in the coverage that extends all the way to $5,100. Patient pays 100%. Then Medicare kicks back in, paying 95% of costs over $5,100. Until the end of the year. Then you get to start over."

Criticism for Dean Not Justified
by Tommy Ates
December 16, 2003

"Dean's doing the right thing. By sticking to his guns, the leading Democratic presidential contender again separates himself from the pack by correctly stating the significance of the capture of Saddam Hussein."

Challenging 'Pre-emption'
by Senator Robert Byrd
The Nation
appearing on Common Dreams
December 15, 2003

"The capture of Saddam Hussein will not be the keystone for peace in that volatile region. This day's news does not lessen the danger that the Bush doctrine of pre-emptive strike poses to international peace and stability."

White House Debates Mercury Policy Behind Closed Doors
from the Daily Mis-leader
December 15, 2003

"Today is the EPA's deadline to announce its plan for regulating mercury from coal-burning power plants. A leaked draft indicates it will downgrade mercury as a toxin while weakening efforts to clean up mercury emissions."

We Caught The Wrong Guy
by William Rivers Pitt
Truthout Perspective
December 15, 2003

"Saddam Hussein, former employee of the American federal government, was captured near a farmhouse in Tikrit in a raid performed by other employees of the American federal government. That sounds pretty deranged, right? Perhaps, but it is also accurate."

Saddam's Capture Will Not Stop Resistance
by Robert Fisk in Baghdad
appearing on rense.com
December 15, 2003

"But all those hopes of a collapse of resistance are doomed. Saddam was neither the spiritual nor the political guide to the insurgency that is now claiming so many lives in Iraq - far more Iraqi than Western lives, one might add - and, however happy Messrs Bush and Blair may be at the capture of Saddam, the war goes on."

We Finally Got Our Frankenstein... and He Was In a Spider Hole!
by Michael Moore
Michaelmoore.com
December 14, 2003

"Thank God Saddam is finally back in American hands! He must have really missed us. Man, he sure looked bad! But, at least he got a free dental exam today. That's something most Americans can't get."

Scare Tactics - Victory or insecurity? Such alarmist rhetoric makes weak case for votes
by RON DZWONKOWSKI, FREE PRESS COLUMNIST
Detroit Free Press
December 14, 2003

"The president ought to tell his man to stop trying to scare up votes with such oversimplified and alarmist rhetoric."

A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition: Statement on recent developments in Iraq
Answer Coalition
December 14, 2003

"The seizure and public display of Saddam Hussein may be a propaganda victory for imperialism, but it changes nothing fundamental about the situation in Iraq, particularly the reality that the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq constitute a blatant and brutal violation of both international and U.S. law."

JESSICA LYNCH CAPTURES SADDAM
EX-DICATATOR DEMANDS BACK PAY FROM BAKER

by Greg Palast
December 14, 2003

"The Iraqi dictator then went on to list the "hits" he conducted on behalf of the Baker-Bush administrations, ending with the invasion of Kuwait in 1990, authorized by the former US secretary of state Baker."

The Capture of Saddam: Now that we've got him, what do we do with him?
by Bryan Zepp Jamieson
December 14, 2003

"The first question the administration has to consider is now that they have Saddam Hussein, what are they going to do with him?"

Is The President A Pathological Liar?
Bush's Unhealthy Relationship With Reality

by David Corn
LA Weekly
December 13, 2003

"The goal of these interlocutors is to dismiss any harsh critique of Bush as nothing more than angry-left name-calling. I obviously believe Bush has lied often and consistently about grave matters, but I have shied away from labeling Bush "pathological" and the like. Now I wonder about that."

US evades blame for Iraqi deaths
by Derrick Z. Jackson
Boston Globe
December 12, 2003

"A SENIOR White House official was asked in a briefing this week if President Bush will ever directly address the Iraqi people about the deaths of Iraqi civilians in the US occupation. Instead of addressing Bush's responsibility, the official delivered a spiraling rendition of denial."

Getting heated over mercury
Regulation rollback is boon for utilities, bad for kids

by Molly Ivins
Workingforchange.org
December 12, 2003

"I can't tell whether this administration is flaunting its cynicism, its contempt for science or its conviction that when in power you help your contributors and fry your enemies. Although how millions of small children and unborn fetuses came to be enemies of Bush & Co. is beyond my political or theological understanding."

DEMOCRACY CRUMBLES UNDER COVER OF DARKNESS
by Sherrod Brown, U.S. Democratic Congressman
December 11, 2003

"House Republicans bend rules, press for votes during wee hours to escape the light of accountability."

Bullet Points
by Chris Floyd
The Moscow Times
December 11, 2003

"The brutal essence of the Bushist Era was thus laid bare last week in the unlikely venue of the Army Times, a corporate-owned military newspaper in Washington. In an article detailing the effectiveness of a new kind of ammunition, the paper -- inadvertently, we assume -- stripped away the patriotic tinfoil wrapped around the arms industry and revealed that "patriotism" for what it really is: extortion, crude and thuggish, a raw greed driven by threats -- including the threat of turning their death-wares against the Americans they are purporting to defend."

Bush's Coming Betrayal of the Evangelicals
by Christopher Manion
appearing on lewrockwell.com
December 11, 2003

"Ever since the invasion of Iraq, Karl Rove has been traveling the country mobilizing the evangelical vote for the 2004 elections. In city after city, he is meeting with evangelical leaders. He begs: 'in 2000, only 16 million of you voted. We need the other four million.'"

A Global Call to Action
by John McConnell, Founder of Earth Day
earthsite.org
December 11, 2003

"Human greed, injustice and folly have almost ruined our planet. The most powerful institutions (global corporations and rich governments) have usually put financial profit first. The biggest profits are in making weapons of war. The resulting violence and injustice has been disastrous."

The Liar of Record
by David Podvin
date unknown

"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 Republican Party."

Baker Takes the Loaf
by Greg Palast
appearing also on TomPaine.com
December 8, 2003

"All year the elves at his law firm, Baker Botts of Texas, have been working day and night to prevent the families of the victims of the September 11 attack from seeking information from Saudi Arabia on the Kingdom's funding of Al Qaeda fronts."

AT FLA. DEMS CONVENTION, KERRY IS THE STAR
by Joe Shea
American Reporter
December 7, 2003

"Five minutes into a tough-talking stem-winder that had Florida's Democrats at their state convention here wildly cheering and waving their signs, U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry was suddenly recapturing the coveted mantle of leadership from hard-charging former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean."

Backtracking on Clean Air
from the Daily Mis-lead
December 6, 2003

"Tuesday, the Bush administration announced its interest in mercury emissions, one day before President Bush asserted that "we all share duties of stewardship." The administration's alternative, a cap-and-trade system that was requested by the industry, would allow power plants to buy and sell the right to emit mercury."

Two Excellent Articles: 911 Smoking Gun - The story they don't want you to read! and, TOO FAR, TOO SLOW, TOO LATE
by William Thomas, Senior Correspondent
lifeboatnews.com
December 5, 2003

"'Stand down' is militareze for 'put down your weapons'. Which is exactly what happened on a day that traumatized a nation of somnambulists into welcoming their own police state."

The F.B.I. Is Watching You (If You Disagree)
by Tommy Ates
December 5, 2003

"The report on FBI surveillance activities, regarding anti-war rallies in Washington and San Francisco (first, reported by The New York Times), surprises few anti-war activists, especially free speech supporters who knew Ashcroft's drafting of the Patriot Act would be most effective in possible protest intimidation."

Photographic Dishonesty
from the Daily Mis-lead
December 5, 2003

"In the most famous picture from his trip to Baghdad, President Bush had himself artfully photographed to look like he was serving turkey to the troops. The image was emblazoned on front pages throughout the country - and now appears to be an entirely false depiction."

Dems want inquiry into reports of Medicare bribe
by William M. Welch and Andrea Stone
USA TODAY
December 5, 2003

"Democrats and a legal watchdog group have asked Attorney General John Ashcroft (news - web sites) to investigate allegations that Republicans offered a House member $100,000 in contributions for his son's election campaign if he would vote for a Medicare prescription drug benefit passed by Congress last month."

Global eye - Blood kin
from Chris Floyd
December 5, 2003

"In our new, more enlightened age, we humbly accept -- even celebrate -- the special privileges accorded to the great ones among us. And so, with a couple of honorable exceptions, the big-time American media lay a nice soft comfy quilt of silence over last month's revelations about presidential brother Neil Bush -- details which emerged from the nasty divorce suit Neil brought upon himself by his flagrant adultery with a close family friend."

A holiday wish: Maybe they'll stay home
by Molly Ivins
Creator's Syndicate/Star-Telegram
December 4, 2003

"Yes, it's undeniably true: The Congress of the United States makes Bart Simpson look like Averell Harriman."

Three Separate Items Being Ignored by Mainstream Media
by various writers

December 3, 2003

"Widow's Bush Treason Suit Vanishes in Blink of Media Eye" - Grieving New Hampshire widow who lost her man on 9/11 refuses the government's million dollar hush money payoff, studies the facts of the day for nearly two years, and comes to believe the White House "intentionally allowed 9/11 to happen" to launch a so-called "War on Terrorism" for personal and political gain.
"A Journalist's Call to Action" - jounalist John Buchanan's investigation of the Bush family Nazi connections
"Dear media" - woman who supposedly committed suicide after claiming Bush abused her sexually.

Signs of Economic Recovery Haven't Trickled Down
by Mark Weisbrot
cepr.net - Center for Economic and Policy Research
December 3, 2003

"But then you turn to your neighbors and friends, and they say it still feels like a recession. Part of this disconnect is because most people get their income from the labor market, not the stock market."

Along With Dean, Clark Is On The Ticket
by Tommy Ates
December 3, 2003

"The revelation that, at the age of 21, Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean in the late '60s, purposely received a medical deferment for his back in 1970, should surprise few voters who shared the same sympathies a growing of Americans had about avoiding the conflict in Vietnam."

The Soldiers At My Front Door
by John Dear
December 1, 2003

"Their chants were disturbing, but this is war. They have to psyche themselves up for the kill. They have to believe that flying off to some tiny, remote desert town in Iraq where they will march in front of someone's house and kill poor young Iraqis has some greater meaning besides cold-blooded murder."

John Buchanan for President 2004 - Take back America, take back the Republican Party
by John Buchanan
November 30, 2003

"Please help a working journalist, armed with truth and the facts, take back our country from the big corporations and war profiteers and return the "neo-con" Party of Halliburton to the Party of Lincoln."

Like a Thief in the Night 600 US troops get turkey for Thanksgiving
by Bryan Zepp Jamieson
November 28, 2003

"The trip was announced several hours after Putsch was safely out of Iraq. It might have been quite the public relations coup, like the one Clinton scored when he went to Kosovo, or what Eisenhower did when he went to Korea. But as soon as details of the secrecy of the trip got out, a startled public turned disdainful."

A couple of real turkeys
by Molly Ivins
Creator's Syndicate/Star-Telegram
November 27, 2003

"I like the timing, too -- they slipped that Medicare deform bill through just in time for the drug companies, the insurance companies and the HMOs to give loud hosannas around their Thanksgiving tables."

GOP pulled no punches in struggle for Medicare bill
by Robert Novak
November 27, 2003

"Smith, self term-limited, is leaving Congress. His lawyer son Brad is one of five Republicans seeking to replace him from a GOP district in Michigan's southern tier. On the House floor, Nick Smith was told business interests would give his son $100,000 in return for his father's vote. When he still declined, fellow Republican House members told him they would make sure Brad Smith never came to Congress. After Nick Smith voted no and the bill passed, Duke Cunningham of California and other Republicans taunted him that his son was dead meat."

The FCC Rollback Hoax
by Josh Silver
November 27, 2003

"Despite the heroic efforts of many members of both the House and Senate - both Democrat and Republican - Congressional leadership and the White House used tricky tactics and trickier legislation to create the illusion of a partial FCC rollback while serving up yet another give away to Big Media."

Soaring drug costs invisible amid vast bill
by Brian Dickerson
November 27, 2003

"But the coalition of pharmaceutical industry apparatchiks and political illusionists who had crafted the bill in secret knew nothing good could come from closer scrutiny of their work."

George's trip to Baghdad
by Steve Editor
November 27, 2003

"So, George W. Bush took a secret trip to Baghdad for a Thanksgiving dinner - excuse me while I yawn. What exactly was the purpose of spending two hours in Baghdad, at a cost which we will probably never be told?"

The Bubble of American Supremacy
by George Soros

"A prominent financier argues that the heedless assertion of American power in the world resembles a financial bubble‹and the moment of truth may be here."

Bush Betrays POWs
by Jim Hightower
November 24, 2003

"George W and his regime of warmongering chicken hawks are constantly doing political photo-ops with our soldiers and piously admonishing everyone to "support the troops." But you might ask Lt. Col. Dale Starr, Col. David Everly, Col. Clifford Acree, and several other soldiers about how the Bushites themselves support our troops."

Undermining the Rx benefit
by Tom Oliphant
Boston Globe
November 24, 2003

"Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona, one of the few conservatives to stick to his principles in opposition to the creation of a major new entitlement program, added that the subsidies to "special interests" like insurance and drug companies stand in stark contrast to the absence of any means of keeping costs from skyrocketing."

What would Castro Do? Hypocrisy in Miami
by Jane Stillwater
November 24, 2003

"Leaders of the Cuban exile community of Miami clearly out-Castro-ed their former nemesis this week as Dade County tactical squads, under the leadership of elected Cuban-American politicians, brutally suppressed citizens' Constitutional rights--to free speech, freedom of the press and free assembly--with an abandon and verve that would have had even Fidel himself open-mouthed."

What's that nasty smell?
by Molly Ivins
November 23, 2003

"The latest round of corporate scandals -- Hollinger, the growing mutual fund mess and the foreign exchange dealers who ripped off their own companies -- provide an elegant summary of the pattern."

FBI has unleashed an attack on political opponents
from the ANSWER coalition
November 23, 2003

"Police have attacked protestors with tear gas, pepper spray, concussion grenades, stun guns and by shooting activists with rubber bullets. Medics have not been allowed in through the police lines to treat the injured."

Her Words Are All You Need
Journal of a Futurist
November 21, 2003

"They've been bombing houses in Tikrit and other areas! Unbelievable... I'm so angry it makes me want to break something!!!! What the hell is going on?! What do the Americans think Tikrit is?"

Bush and Blair are in Trouble
by John Pilger
November 20, 2003

"Shortly before the disastrous Bush visit to Britain, Tony Blair was at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday. It was an unusual glimpse of a state killer whose effete respectability has gone. His perfunctory nod to "the glorious dead" came from a face bleak with guilt."

A Journalist's call to action
from John Buchanan
November 19, 2003

"On September 17, I became the first journalist in U.S. history to independently confirm and report in a reputable newspaper -- The New Hampshire Gazette, founded in 1756 and the oldest paper in America -- the Nazi past of the Bush family, via its 27-year business relationship with Nazi industrialist Fritz Thyssen from 1924 until 1951. Both Prescott Bush, the grandfather of George W. Bush, and George Herbert Walker, his maternal great-grandfather, were part of the partnership, under the banner of the private bank Brown Brothers Harriman."

The US Will Leave Iraq Next Year
by Lew Rockwell
November 19, 2003

"At the same time, there are ways that governments concede that "mistakes were made." One way is the pullout, such as is being discussed with regard to Iraq. Sectors of the Bush administration are hinting that it could come sooner rather than later, even as the neocons howl and wail that success is only a nuclear bomb away."

Bush readies more tax breaks
by Thomas Oliphant
November 18, 2003

"Coming after a third round of goodies last spring and an autumn crammed with corporate scams (from the oil and gas boys to health insurance companies), the next round is designed to slip through the back door a virtual exclusion of investment income from taxation."

Love, American Style
by Daniel Patrick Welch
November 18, 2003

"Exporting democracy, it turns out, means more than just showing unfortunate non-westerners the joys of having someone else write a decent constitution for them."

Advancing to the rear Putsch declares victory and pulls out
by Bryan Zepp Jamieson
November 17, 2003

"Make no mistake about it: the administration's about-face on Iraq, declaring that they would have a full administrative pullout by next June and a military pullout by 2006, represents a clear defeat, and a humiliation for the administration."

Tell Us the Truth!
by John Nichols
November 16, 2003

"The Tell Us the Truth Tour has set the sentiments of millions of angry Americans to music, and taken the show on the road. Traveling by bus across the eastern United States on a tour that began November 7 in Madison, Wisconsin and will finish November 24 in Washington, some of the most innovative artists in American music -- and a comrade from Britain -- are raising a ruckus about the Bush administration's push for greater media consolidation and for international economic policies that are devastating the economies of both the U.S. and its trading partners."

HELP DERAIL THE NADER EXPRESS NOW!!
by R. J. Crane, Editor
topplebush.com
November 15, 2003

"To beat Bush in 2004 we cannot afford to have Ralph Nader running again for President regardless of how we might feel about him otherwise. Or any other third party candidate who would draw votes away from the Democratic nominee."

Hold On to Your Humanity
An Open Letter to GIs in Iraq

by Stan Goff (US Army Retired)
November 14/23, 2003

"When I started hearing about weapons of mass destruction that threatened the United States from Iraq, a shattered country that had endured almost a decade of trench war followed by an invasion and twelve years of sanctions, my first question was how in the hell can anyone believe that this suffering country presents a threat to the United States? But then I remembered how many people had believed Vietnam threatened the United States. Including me."

The Fallacies of American Democracy for Iraq
by Terrell E. Arnold
November 14, 2003

"One hopes that in this hastily called review, the situation and outlook for Iraq would be looked at squarely. Up to this point, the chances for that occurring, however, have appeared slim, because the administration, and by extension Bremer's team in country, has appeared fixated on carrying out the Bush scheme for transforming Iraq into an American style democracy."

Is War Our Biological Destiny?
by Natalie Angier
New York Times
November 11, 2003

"In these days of hidebound militarism and round-robin carnage, when even that beloved ambassador of peace, the Dalai Lama, says it may be necessary to counter terrorism with violence, it's fair to ask: Is humanity doomed? Are we born for the battlefield - congenitally, hormonally incapable of putting war behind us? Is there no alternative to the bullet-riddled trapdoor, short of mass sedation or a Marshall Plan for our DNA?"

Why We Fight
by Ted Rall
November 11, 2003

"Thank you for joining the Iraqi resistance forces. You have been issued an AK-47 rifle, rocket-propelled grenade launcher and an address where you can pick up supplies of bombs and remote-controlled mines. Please let your cell leader know if you require additional materiel for use against the Americans."

PRESIDENT BUSH: MAKE THOSE PROTESTERS DISAPPEAR
by CHARLES LEVENDOSKY
November 2003

"President Bush has never been an advocate of the First Amendment. Even when he was governor of Texas, he prohibited demonstrations on the walkways in front of the governor's mansion, an area which had traditionally been used for peaceful protests."

Black Box Voting Blues
by Steven Levy
November 3, 2003 edition

"After the traumas of butterfly ballots and hanging chad, election officials are embracing a brave new ballot: sleek, touch-screen terminals known as direct recording electronic voting systems (DRE)."

No Light at the End of This Tunnel, George
by ERIC MARGOLIS -- Contributing Foreign Editor
November 2, 2003

"Reacting to last week's Ramadan offensive in Iraq, President George Bush actually claimed it proved things were improving, though attacks on U.S. forces have surged from 20 to 30 daily."

From Jekyll-Hyde to Hyde-Jekyll: The American Transformation
by Gary North
October 29, 2003

"The strange irony is this: in their private affairs, Americans have two over-riding slogans, both of which are anti-war and anti-empire. Eight words summarize the American philosophy of life."

Nobody's Home
Why do fundies insist on tormenting the dead?

by Bryan Zepp Jamieson
October 28, 2003

"Almost certainly, a court will rule the "Terri Law" unconstitutional and reinstate the original decision to remove the feeding tube from the carcass. If they don't, then America will be just as dead as Terri is, and just as unlikely to ever come back."

Let's unite to prevent voter fraud in 2004!
by R. J. Crane, editor Topplebush.com
October 27, 2003

"The purpose of this column is to attempt to unite many large progressive websites concerned with this issue to do something about it before the 2004 election. It would be a real tragedy if Bush won again without actually winning or getting a plurality of the votes. But it could happen if even more states buy touchscreen voting machines that don't leave a verifiable paper trail."

A Brief History of Computerized Election Fraud in America
by Victoria Collier
October 25, 2003

"But modern Americans have been abandoning the voting booth in droves. Over the past fifty years, less than half of all eligible voters went to the polls, sometimes less than 25%. However, far more astounding is that those who voted rarely bothered to wonder if their vote was counted accurately."

Curtains Ordered for Media Coverage of Returning Coffins
by Dana Milbank, New York Times | Editorial
Tuesday 21 October 2003

"Since the end of the Vietnam War, presidents have worried that their military actions would lose support once the public glimpsed the remains of U.S. soldiers arriving at air bases in flag-draped caskets.

To this problem, the Bush administration has found a simple solution: It has ended the public dissemination of such images by banning news coverage and photography of dead soldiers' homecomings on all military bases."

Piss On My Leg Perception Control and the Stage Management of War
by Stan Goff
October 17, 2003

"Last week, 500 identical letters-to-the-editor were received by hometown newspapers across the United States, all from LTC Caraccilo's unit, but signed by dozens of his troops, some with apparently forged signatures from troops who were unaware of the letter at all."

How subversive politics undermined our democracy and endangered the nation
by Burt Hall
October 16, 2003

"The far right has hijacked the Republican Party and poses the greatest danger to our nation in decades. Desperate to further their own agenda, the far right abuses power and does not play by the rules or follow the U.S. Constitution. They decide what they want to do and then pursue a win-at-any-cost strategy to achieve it."

The amount of casualties flowing steadily from Iraq is way more damning than the number of US soldiers being killed there
by R. J. Crane, editor
Topplebush.com
October 16, 2003

"What is passing under the radar regarding the war in Iraq is the staggering number of casualties that occur on a daily basis. According to an article published in The New Republic (10-2-03) by editor, Lawrence F. Kaplan, almost every night giant C-17 transport jets loaded with wounded Americans land at Andrews Air Force Base in Washington."
