News Summary
Cutting thru the Propaganda
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!
Exposing the ugly truth
about the Republican Party's diabolical plot to replace constitutional democracy with an oligarchic
fascist theocracy...

It's the only rational explanation!
Why does the Republican Party zealously pursue policies so obviously counter to the best interests of ordinary Americans? 

It can only be

Former Reagan & Bush Official Bruce Bartlett Describes Fox News Viewing as 'Self-Brainwashing'
Elect Gil Fullbright
or Whatever You Prefer
His Name to Be
Lobbyist, Former Congressman, Speaker & Bush Admin Stooge
Dennis Hastert
With the sudden scandal erupting around former Republican Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, one should recall how he was originally elevated to the position of the Number 3 constitutional officer of the United States. After Newt Gingrich was dumped by his caucus for post-impeachment losses, and the successor Livingston speakership was aborted in a matter of days after revelations of a sex scandal, the Bush administration needed to tamp-down the embarrassing chaos and increased political scrutiny. This would be accomplished by installing an affable, non-controversial Speaker to preside, leaving  Republican Majority Leader Dick Armey and Whip Tom "The Hammer" DeLay to strong-arm the administration's  agenda through the House. They just needed their stooge. Enter Dennis Hastert, who provided the GOP a kinder, gentler, "moderate" facade while radical Republican hit-men did the dirty work. The question now is whether Hastert's purported sex scandal is the real reason for those cash withdrawals, or whether that's just a cover story to camouflage cash payments to prominent politicians -- a broader bribery scandal that would entail a lot more time in the slammer.  In either event, it's hard to believe a former Speaker could be so ignorant of the banking regulations he helped pass.  MORE
