Hundreds of wealthy Republicans gathered at the President Bush, Dick Cheney, and a host of celebrities gathered at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge here in the first weekend in April, not for a fundraiser but for a celebration of fundraisers.

THE REIGN IN SPAIN FALLS MAINLY ON THE LAME (tags)

Black Box Voting (Expanded) (tags)
Touch Screen Voting Machines with no Auditable Trail and no way to confirm the accuracy of the Vote are a really great way to steal an election. You need to know about this and how to fight it. If you wish to live in a country with honest elections that is.
America Betrayed by Cowardly Citizens (tags)
Today's version of the heroic Nathan Hale would fall to his knees, beg for mercy, and swear fealty to the British crown. A 21st century Patrick Henry would no doubt argue that homeland security trumps personal liberty. Benedict Arnold would make the rounds of the TV talk shows, lauded as an "heroic pragmatist." In a land of wimps, the dimwit is king--such is the dismal state of post-9/11 America.
U.S. Runs out of Places to look for WMD® (tags)
What WMD®? Duh - we can't find any. With prewar intelligence exhausted and senior figures from the former regime insisting Iraq hasn't had chemical or biological weapons in years, Dayton's staff will be starting from scratch.
Bush is a bigger liar than clinton (tags)
I knew Bush would hang himself. This story is from the Washington Post, (oh but Bush Admirer will just say the Washington Post is a left wing rag).

Proof the CA Energy Crisis was Corporate Manipulation/Theft (tags)
Probably no one reading the LA-IMC newswire will be surprised by this -- but here's (some of) the proof that last year's California Energy Crisis was thoroughly manipulated by the unregulated, parasitic energy corporations. A similar story was on the front page of today's (5-7-02) LA Times and the New York Times also had a lead article on the matter. Sorry for re-posting corporate media here, but I think it's important for this to be accessible on the LA-IMC newswire for posterity's sake. BTW, Pacifica Radio's Democracy NOW! had an excellent segment this morning about this as well.
"RAISE THE FIST" defensible? (tags)
From the Washingtonpost... "According to the FBI, Austin allegedly defaced at least five commercial Web sites since 1999 using the nickname "Ucaun." On three of the sites, Austin left behind a hacking program named troop.cgi that was designed to attempt to log in to a computer operated by the U.S. Army, the FBI affidavit stated. In the interview, Austin (raise the fist) acknowledged that he vandalized the Web sites and that he knew it was illegal to do so. But he defended the act by saying it was necessary to get his message out."
