Thursday News Brief

Tom DeLay says, M-A-R-S! Mars, bitches!
House Majority Leader holds photo op, press briefing for pie-in-the-sky human exploration mission to the Angry Red Planet, hoping to distract Americans from his scandals here on Earth.
Here's my idea: Let's tell Tom that lobbyists are willing to pay for his ticket to Mars, and convince him that there will be golf when he gets there. We will conveniently forget to disclose to him that his ticket is one-way.



US Mainstream Media Ignores Evidence of BushCo.'s Lies Leading Up To Iraq War
This is important.
It's known as The Downing Street Memo:
The contents of the memo are shocking. The minutes detail how our government did not believe Iraq was a greater threat than other nations; how intelligence was "fixed" to sell the case for war to the American public; and how the Bush Administration’s public assurances of "war as a last resort" were at odds with their privately stated intentions.

This is a potential blockbuster scandal, capable of unseating this President, but coverage of this story in the American Mainstream Media has been scant at best. Where's the outrage? Where are the "Deep Throats" of today? Where are the intrepid reporters? Why didn't anyone in the press corps ask W when they had the chance on Tuesday? Has the White House bullied the press so much that they are reduced to being obsequious stenographers? What are they afraid of? Are their stories being spiked by editors afraid to piss off their big corporate owners and advertisers?
Ralph Nader and Kevin Zeese on the "I Word"
Michigan Rep. John Conyers writes a letter to W demanding explanation, 59,000 sign it.
What can you do?
Awaken the Mainstream Media


Do you feel a draft?


The Bush Administration will soon be spraying crowds with this stuff during public appearances. You laugh now, but soon you'll be swooning over little W and Big Dick.
