The quagmire of liberation gone sour
Christian Science Monitor - By Daniel Schorr

...American GIs are not like the Roman Legions, especially trained to spread order, language, and civilization across the empire. But the role of American forces in Iraq seems to be mutating from liberators to occupiers. And they find it difficult to patrol efficiently from huge tanks.

Iraqis bitterly complain that the Americans have done little to restore basic services. Sen. Pete Domenici (R) of New Mexico said at an appropriation hearing, "There is a real chance that the victory we claim is not a victory at all."...


Bush 'is on brink of catastrophe'
From Roland Watson in Washington-TimesOnline

THE most senior Republican authority on foreign relations in Congress has warned President Bush that the United States is on the brink of catastrophe in Iraq.
Richard Lugar, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said that Washington was in danger of creating “an incubator for terrorist cells and activity”...


Nobel Laureate Stiglitz Blasts Bush's Fiscal Policies
Quicken -

NEW YORK -(Dow Jones)- Capitol Hill may be backing President George W. Bush's tax-cutting agenda, but Nobel laureate economist Joseph Stiglitz isn't buying it. ...
..."The dividend tax cut is probably the most regressive tax cut we've had," said Stiglitz, who was the World Bank's chief economist from 1997 until 2000.
He said the 226,000 richest in the U.S. will reap the same benefit as the 120 million tax payers at the bottom of the income ladder...

SOME VIEWER SUGGESTIONS for Terror Alert Girl of the Month:

  • How about naming Laura Bush the next poster girl

  • Condi Rice. Or the twins.

  • Four candidates came to mind for Terror Alert Girl of the Month. They are:
    1) Bay Buchanan. She'd terrorize Mt. Rushmore.
    2) Lynne Cheney. So terrorizing she'd stop hot cow manure in mid air.
    3 & 4) The bush twins. Bar flies that turn into wild 'n crazy Huns at the drop
    of a shot glass.

  • Mona Charen

  • Wynonna Ryder

  • any of the fox news reporters including the males

  • ann coulter, lucianne goldberg, peggy noonan

  • Ari Fleisher (Bush Spin-doctor)

  • Gen. Tommy Franks ( War Hero????)

No one named me. I wanted to be the poster girl.  -Lisa



Chirac to embarrass Bush at G8 conference
By Philip Delves Broughton and Pav Akhtar in Paris
(Filed: 22/05/2003)

President Chirac is preparing to embarrass President Bush at the forthcoming G8 summit in France by laying out an agenda heavy on environmental, development and economic issues and light on the fight against terrorism.

'The Truth Will Emerge'
by Senator Robert C. Byrd

Senate Floor Remarks - May 21, 2003

"Truth, crushed to earth, shall rise again,--
The eternal years of God are hers;
But Error, wounded, writhes in pain,
And dies among his worshippers."

If there were any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, the invasion has,
contrary to making us safer, increased the danger worldwide by accelerating
proliferation. Before invasion, one had to hope Saddam wouldn't take leave of
his sense for power by giving such weapons to his ideological enemies. With
central control gone, the weapons (if they existed) are in the hands of local
commanders who would gladly sell them to the highest bidder (in exchange for
money and safe passage out of the country). And yet, somehow, Bush is considered
a hero for this bungle. And France, Germany, and all our other old friends, who
tried to warn us of this catastrophe, are considered "enemies." What kind of a
world is this?

Lafayette, Indiana

It has become a crazy world since Bush went to the US Supreme Court to stop the counting of votes in Florida. 

It has been a downhill slide since that single event. We need leaders with vision, hope and command of the English language,

so they are respected and not laughed at by the entire world. I felt safer with a diplomat like Bill Clinton in charge.

Thank you for your eloquent email.


Hello Lisa & Zelda,

I am an old geezer, a former math teacher now retired ten years, who became interested in politics when I listened to Mike Malloy Radio about five years ago on WLS. Now, I consider myself a Human Rights Political Activist who's mission is to 'connect' like minded individuals who share the same political vision and have the ability to communicate their ideas to others.

Both of you and Mike fit into the communicator category. Please, connect with one another to strengthen the voice of true American patriots.

Lisa and Zelda- Mike has a three hour radio program (accessible via the internet) . . . go to his web page at
  and follow the directions to listen to his program week nights from 7-10 PM EDT. Call in the program at 1-800=TALK YES and voice your opinion on Mike's rants.

Mike, contact Lisa Casey and Zelda Morgan.

Not only do they have great cartoons, they are damn smart and have a great web page.  Have them as guest/callers on your program!!

Get together!


PS I am very persistent and will not give up until I know that you have connected.


Doc, thanks for writing.  What if my voice sounds like finger nails scratching a blackboard?

And Zelda Morgan has microphoneitis.

All kidding aside, a couple of years ago I used to deliver a morning business report on the Alan George Morning Show on WEBY - 1330 am  in the Florida Panhandle.  Not the biggest market on the block. The internet company I was doing the report for became another dot com gravestone.  So my short lived radio career ended. But I can talk and chew gum simultaneously.

When I return from my investigative reporting (location yet to be disclosed -- I'm leaning towards Nepal.  As always AHNC will report live) .  I will try calling Mike Malloy.  I admire him being able to exist in such a closed market.

If Ann Coulter made her career focused on Clinton's privates then

Zelda and I should skyrocket to stardom focused on President Sock Puppet. 

It can happen!  Plus, we're not anorexic -- we practice bulimia to stay svelte.  -Lisa

The Hollowed Holes of Ethics

By Walter Brasch

 The nation's journalists were surprised, shocked, and outraged. Jayson Blair, a 27-year-old New York Times national correspondent, had lied and cheated his way through a four-year career at the paper that not only claims to have the highest journalistic standards but also believes it's the national record. click here

Occupation of Iraq illegal, Blair told

Clare Dyer, legal correspondent
Thursday May 22, 2003
The Guardian

Leaked advice from the attorney general, Lord Goldsmith, reveals that he warned Tony Blair two months ago that attempts at postwar reconstruction of Iraq by US-British occupying authorities would be unlawful without a further UN resolution.
Lord Goldsmith, the government's chief law officer, told the prime minister that the longer the occupation went on and the more the actions of the occupying authorities departed from their main task of disarmament, the harder it would be to justify the occupation as lawful.
