Illinois says, "Impeach the Bastards!"

Bush Impeachment - The Illinois State Legislature Is Preparing to Drop a Bombshell

By Steven Leser OpEd News

Saturday 22 April 2006

Utilizing a little known rule of the US House to bring Impeachment charges.

The Illinois General Assembly is about to rock the nation. Members of state legislatures are normally not considered as having the ability to decide issues with a massive impact to the nation as a whole. Representative Karen A. Yarbrough of Illinois' 7th District is about to shatter that perception forever. Representative Yarbrough stumbled on a little known and never utlitized rule of the US House of Representatives, Section 603 of Jefferson's Manual of the Rules of the United States House of Representatives, which allows federal impeachment proceedings to be initiated by joint resolution of a state legislature. From there, Illinois House Joint Resolution 125 (hereafter to be referred to as HJR0125) was born.

Detailing five specific charges against President Bush including one that is specified to be a felony, the complete text of HJR0125 is copied below at the end of this article. One of the interesting points is that one of the items, the one specified as a felony, that the NSA was directed by the President to spy on American citizens without warrant, is not in dispute. That fact should prove an interesting dilemma for a Republican controlled US House that clearly is not only loathe to initiate impeachment proceedings, but does not even want to thoroughly investigate any of the five items brought up by the Illinois Assembly as high crimes and/or misdemeanors. Should HJR0125 be passed by the Illinois General Assembly, the US House will be forced by House Rules to take up the issue of impeachment as a privileged bill, meaning it will take precedence over other House business.

Daniel Ellsberg, the Marine Commander who worked in the Pentagon and released "the Pentagon Papers" to the press - proved that the Viet Nam war was one based on war profiteering with no basis in fact. Here he is AFTER winning a court case which absolved him from charges relating to releasing classified documents.
The government was lying to the people then - just as they are lying to us now.

THE axis of evil and training ground for terrorism.

I thought after the RNC fixes the next election courtesy of Diebold that the 700 Club would likely make Jeff Gannon a Saint.

OK it is sick, its warped - it is sooooooooo George though...don't you think.
The Illinois General Assembly joins a growing chorus of voices calling for censure or impeachment of President Bush including Democratic state committees in Vermont, Wisconsin, New Mexico, Nevada and North Carolina as well as the residents themselves of seven towns in Vermont, seventy Vermont state legislators and Congressman John Conyers. The call for impeachment is starting to grow well beyond what could be considered a fringe movement. An ABC News/Washington Post Poll Conducted April 6-9 showed that 33% of Americans currently support Impeaching President Bush, coincidentally, only a similar amount supported impeaching Nixon at the start of the Watergate investigation. If and when Illinois HJR0125 hits the capitol and the individual charges are publicly investigated, that number is likely to grow rapidly. Combined with the very real likelihood that Rove is about to be indicted in the LeakGate investigation, and Bush is in real trouble beyond his plummeting poll numbers. His cronies in the Republican dominated congress will probably save him from the embarassment of an impeachment conviction, for now, but his Presidency will be all but finished.
The world thanks you Illinois, thanks for speaking truth to power and moving to take the country back from organized crime.

Your Silence Will Not Protect You

Colin Powell, who is often referred to as "a good soldier," is nothing more than a manikin of deceit for whomever happens to be the power to whom he kow tows.

He has lied on TWO occasions in order to bomb and invade Iraq. He follows orders and is a good gang man - gang over country.

Ah where greed meets crime - Neo Cons regardless of party

Former military man and present-day historian Andrew Bacevich on the Cheney-Rumsfeld-Wolfowitz attitude toward 9/11, here.

Yes, it was a disaster. Yes, it was terrible. But by God, this was a disaster that could be turned to enormous advantage. Here lay the chance to remove constraints on the exercise of American military power, enabling the Bush administration to shore up, expand, and perpetuate U.S. global hegemony.

Toward that end, senior officials concocted this notion of a Global War on Terror, really a cover story for an effort to pacify and transform the broader Middle East, a gargantuan project which is doomed to fail. Committing the United States to that project presumed a radical redistribution of power within Washington. The hawks had to cut off at the knees institutions or people uncomfortable with the unconstrained exercise of American power. And who was that? Well, that was the CIA. That was the State Department, especially the State Department of Secretary Colin Powell. That was the Congress.

Congress and American media sit, like spectators, watching crime after crime committed by Bush and the boys, with Condi wanta be wife, mime and mirror spewing the latest laughable spin.

Audre Lorde - Warrior Poet

"Your silence will not protect you"

Simply breaking self imposed silence and speaking truth to bigotry is a start.

Yes Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada - cancel the contract that gave the build of our census system to a military industrial contractor involved in TORTURE.
Lockheed Martin is doing the hardware and software for the Canadian census system. Interesting how our fathers died in trenches fighting facism, while our federal government sees fit to HIRE THEM and send our soldiers to be trained and work under their command. Do they train them in torture too?

Do we also deport to countries who torture ?
It is time to stand and be counted. Let's boot the Bushs outa the people's house and hold them accountable for thirty years of war crimes.

Scapegoating, Terrorizing Our Community the RNC Way

Indeed, an unprosecuted Bush, from Auschwitz to Abu Gharib, ...a track record over three generations.

How kinky, standing in the cross position smeared with shit.

Gee I wonder if he is overwhelmed with respect and awe for the those amazing Americans ?

Just think - our Canadian kids report to Americans in Afghanistan. I wonder what they are learning there? Wasn't that supposed to be a UN mission?

Hey not that approval ratings matter worth squat when they control the voting machines, have no paper trail and the exit polls mis-match the actual vote and the press buries it.

Global gluttons with two concerns:

money & power

A rare thank you to CNN and in particular Jack Cafferty for speaking truth to power.


CROOKS & LIARS Watch the video on the link. Here's the transcript:

Jack Cafferty: Wolf, Today's lesson in hypocrisy comes to us courtesy of the Senate Judiciary Committee. They met in a different private room behind closed doors today and approved a Constitutional Amendment banning gay marriage. at one point the thing got pretty ugly. A shouting match, between the Republican Chairman Senator Arlen Spector and Democratic Senator Russ Feingold, who said he was against the Amendment as well as Spector's decision to hold the vote in a private room out of the public's view. These guys are shameless. Feingold eventually stormed out telling Spector "I've enjoyed your lecture Mr Chairman. See ya."

Senator Spector in a real show of courage, says that he is "totally opposed to the Amendment", but he voted for it anyway saying that it deserves a debate in the Senate.

Majority Leader Bill Frist says the full Senate will now debate a Constitutional Amendment which has absolutely no chance of passing. Frist hopes to have a vote by June 5th. This is all being done by the republican majority in an effort to appeal to Right-wing nuts in the Republican Party ahead of the upcoming mid-term elections. Ignore all of the pressing issues facing the country, and instead go grovel at the feet of the lunatic fringe. Senator Frist should be very proud of himself. That's leadership. Here's the question: Is now the time for the Senate to consider a constitutional Amendment on gay marriage?"

The Republicans show their cowardice once again by hiding in a private room. Good for Feingold. Frist and the word "leadership" in the same sentence is scary. Lunatic fringe sounds about right to me. This should be called the "James Dobson" amendment.

Everytime these pious, pimps, of political propaganda get into a stew of their own making,
they attempt to distract by attacking our community.

I think it was Gandhi, when asked what he thought of American civilization, he said,

"I think it would be a good idea."

Me too.

"W" is for WORST - UN Human Rights Group - a Joke

Is this Bolton's (US Ambassador to the UN) idea of a joke on the world? Look at the countries on the human rights council of the United Nations:

07-04-2005World's Worst Regimes Seat in the UN Human Rights Commission
GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, March 31 - Freedom House today released its annual list of the world's most repressive regimes at the United Nations Commission on Human Rights. Six are members of the UN body, charged with monitoring and condemning human rights violations.

The report, "The Worst of the Worst: The World's Most Repressive Societies 2005," includes detailed summations of the dire human rights situations in Belarus, Burma (Myanmar), China, Cuba, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Haiti, Laos, Libya, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe. Chechnya, Tibet, and Western Sahara are included as territories under Russian, Chinese, and Moroccan jurisdictions respectively.
The report is available online.

THIS is just the type of cynical, manipulative, nastiness we have seen consistently from the Bush criminal corporate coup. Whose side are they on? The USA is broke, the middle class has been razed and left jobless, and permanent tax cuts, offshore shelters and even assistance to move a company offshore is all paid by the tax payer.

Lately, I just keep hearing the music and seeing the scene from "Jesus Christ Superstar", you know the one, the part where Jesus storms in and says, "GET OUT - my house is a place of worship."

Walk your talk before it is too late to save your soul. Talking democracy doesn't make it so,
you have to walk it darlin, and lately - American democracy is not even crawling.

Reptilian Neo-Con Rumsfeld

Rumsfeld, like Bush, Cheney, Rice and Rove, blows the profile for narcissistic psychopath off the page.

War criminal personified, Rumsfeld is not able to display much in the way of human traits. He appears to be devoid of empathy, kindness, intuition or any sense of rational logic.

Like Falwell, he follows a mantra that says,
"Just keep believing you are right no matter what and debate that way."

Neither understanding that the entire purpose of the "debate" is then lost. This man and his 30-40 year tenure manipulating in the background, unelected, has been involved in every RNC USA started war and then some.
Because of him, Cheney and Bush the USA owes much of the world an apology and considerable monetary support for time to come. But the USA is now broke and owes China a bundle...
this Neo Con crowd having achieved more in the destruction of America and democracy than any cult in history.
I don't know why Murtha went public (just as the right wingers don't know) but I can make my own guess: He did it to try to prevent Rumsfeld's toadies from classifying and then deep sixing the investigative report, as they tried to bury the Taguba report on Abu Ghraib. And if the past really is prologue, Murtha is probably speaking on behalf of some fairly senior Marine officers who either can't abide a cover up, or who want to pin the blame on the people who created this mess, and left the jarheads in Haditha to deal with it, instead of on their beloved Corps.As for the excuse making, well, it's just Abu Ghraib, not to mention My Lai, all over again. There's something about war atrocities (ours as well as the other side's) that brings out the absolute worst in the keyboard commandos. If they could only hear themselves, they might realize they sound just like a bunch of Serbian paramilitary groupies, arguing that their boys couldn't have raped and murdered their way through Bosnia because Serbian fighters are men of honor, that everybody knows the foreign media made those stories up, and that the "Turks" just got what was coming to them -- all at the same time.But then, if they could hear themselves, if they understood what role they are playing in the degradation of a nation and its armed forces, they probably wouldn't be doing it. Or at least, I prefer to think so. Better to believe we're living in the same country with a movement of fools, rather than out-and-out fascists.

In Cold Blood

Thursday, May 18 2006 @ 10:55 AM PDTContributed by: arch_stanton

When the Abu Ghraib horror show first aired on 60 Minutes, I remember wondering whether it would prove to be the Iraq War's version of the My Lai Massacre -- with the photo of the hooded man on his box, arms spread in a crucifix, as the enduring image of a military machine run amok(actually the procedures were written by Rumsfeld), just as a photo of murdered Vietnamese women and children, sprawled in the middle of a muddy road, became the Americal Division's permanent badge of shame.

To a degree, that's what happened -- with the hapless sadists of the 184th Infantry Regiment serving as the collective stand-ins for Lt. William Calley, and Colin Powell reprising his earlier role as the bullshit artist telling everybody what they want to hear. But now it appears that instead of a symbolic My Lai, we have the genuine article:

A Pentagon probe into the death of Iraqi civilians last November in the Iraqi city of Haditha will show that U.S. Marines "killed innocent civilians in cold blood," a U.S. lawmaker said Wednesday.From the beginning, Iraqis in the town of Haditha said U.S. Marines deliberately killed 15 unarmed Iraqi civilians, including seven women and three children . . .On Wednesday, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., said the accounts are true.
You certainly DO Rummie. Unelected, as usual, you pull the strings in the background and like Cheney, seem
to carry your own level of Presidential protection.

Like the rest of these thugs and dead enders - you are not daring, or adventuresome or strategically brilliant - simply capable of doing the unspeakable to anyone not agreeing with you - and it has nothing to do with patriotism.

Greed, murder and power are the goals. You are quite simply protected from the law by a media so brainwashed they are incapable of critical thinking and a Supreme Court appointed by the likes of two Bushs.

Indeed everything this clown accuses someone else of doing - he is doing himself.

The USA has operated a terrorist training school through the School of Americas for over twenty years. Quite simply the USA has intervened for corporations in over 120 countries in the world.

Look in the mirror before you attack anyone else... ever again.

“This one is ugly," one official told NBC News.Ugly? That doesn't even begin to cover it. Dick Cheney is ugly. The Pentagon is ugly. An Abrams tank is ugly. Executing helpless women and children while they're huddled on the floor, praying to their God, is a war crime committed by terrorists. It's Lidice and Rwanda and Srebrenica and, of course, My Lai. The men who committed this crime aren't really human any more -- they shed their humanity like a snake sheds its skin when they walked into those houses and started shooting. All that's left of them is a dark pit at the center of their reptilian brain stems, a place that knows no pity or remorse or even self-awareness. They're lost souls -- lost to the world and to themselves.I don't know if it's better or worse that this atrocity seems to have been committed by a military unit completely out of control, instead of one that was following orders, as was clearly the case at Abu Ghraib. One one hand, you can argue that it's simply a reminder that Americans are as capable of being beasts as anyone else: Germans, Japanese, Russians, Serbs, Arabs, Afghans, Israelis, Somalians, Afrikaaners, Salvadorans -- the list goes on and on. There's nothing exceptional about us, even in our war crimes.

What is most ugly, is the deafening silence from middle America. Oh the polls are down for George, but heck a bit of media manipulation (they sold shock and awe), and the people will be back in the pocket again.

WHAT THE HELL IS THE MATTER WITH AMERICANS? Why aren't you marching by the millions to stand surrounding your capitol and demand these EVIL, ENTITLED, cowards LEAVE. What are you going to believe the mountain of fact - or the lying goose-stepping, greedy little bastards of commerce who would screw their own mother for a buck?

You can almost have a life OR, you can live a life of passion - one that says,

"God thank you for giving me this life, this planet, this earth, this magnificent, wonderful earth with all the bounty we as humans will ever need, all we have to do is learn to see the God in each other to share it. "

A Criminal Cult - the Christian Coalition

Gawd, I love this particular image, DeLay playing the usual sick RNC card, inferring when you publish FACTS in regard to one of them you are persecuting God. (Boy does that take blasphemy to a whole new level).
What an absolute farce that this group of criminals associated with money laundering, gerry mandering, and even murder (Abramoff) - should profess to be associated with God, (and get away with murder for so claiming).

The United States has experienced religious and cult hucksters throughout its history, from Cotton Mather and his Salem witch burners to Billy Sunday, Father Charles Coughlin, Charles Manson, Jim Jones, David Koresh, Marshall Applewhite, and others. But none have ever achieved the kind of power now possessed by a powerful and secretive group of conservative politicians and wealthy businessmen in the United States and abroad who are known among their adherents and friends as The Fellowship or The Family. The Fellowship and its predecessor organizations have used Jesus in the same way that McDonald’s uses golden arches and Coca Cola uses its stylized script lettering. Jesus is a logo and a slogan for the Fellowship. Jesus is used to justify the Fellowship’s access to the highest levels of government and business in the same way Santa Claus entices children into department stores and malls during the Christmas shopping season.

FBI investigates Coast sex cult - A cult that preaches pedophilia, incest and rape flourishes on the Gold Coast despite international efforts to shut it down. The FBI is investigating an international cult with strong links to the Gold Coast after a barrage of affidavits from second-generation members who say their lives were ruined by sexual abuse and mind control. The Family, formerly known as The Children of God, claims it has changed, no longer promotes sex between children and adults and has apologised to past victims, but former members warn it is still recruiting in Queensland.

What bound all so-called “America First” movements prior to World War II was their common hatred for labor unions, Communists and Socialists, Jews, and most definitely, the administration of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Vereide’s Prayer Breakfast Movement, pro-Nazi German groups like the Bund, and a resurgent Ku Klux Klan had more than propaganda in common – they had an interlocking leadership and a coordinated political agenda.
Here is the ever expanding Falwell being embraced by fellow fascist Moon.

Ol Pretty Boy Floyd of the religious right is now implicated in money laundering along with Jack Abramoff. He played the action both ways ripping off his christian constituency AND the Indians. He also campaigned all over Canada for Stephen Harper, now Prime Minister of Canada and fellow Neo CON to George W. Bush.
The CBC mentions that little gem about as often as the US mainsteam media tells the truth about the faith based money laundry that is the religious right.

The KKKristian KKKoalition & Pat Robertson

One of the most exasperating enemies of truth, logic and reason is Pat Robertson and his religious/political organization, the Christian Coalition. Such a prejudiced, hate-filled group has not existed on the face of the earth since Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich attempted to take over the world. People will cry out that the differences are too large to draw such a comparison, but I humbly disagree. Had Pat Robertson been around in Nazi Germany, he would have been a leader amongst the ranks.

Here is a list of some of the hateful things that Pat Robertson has said covering all sorts of issues. Please note that I have not altered the statements in the slightest.

"It is interesting, that termites don't build things, and the great builders of our nation almost to a man have been Christians, because Christians have the desire to build something. He is motivated by love of man and God, so he builds. The people who have come into [our] institutions [today] are primarily termites. They are into destroying institutions that have been built by Christians, whether it is universities, governments, our own traditions, that we have.... The termites are in charge now, and that is not the way it ought to be, and the time has arrived for a godly fumigation." --Pat Robertson, New York Magazine, August 18, 1986

"When I said during my presidential bid that I would only bring Christians and Jews into the government, I hit a firestorm. `What do you mean?' the media challenged me. `You're not going to bring atheists into the government? How dare you maintain that those who believe in the Judeo-Christian values are better qualified to govern America than Hindus and Muslims?' My simple answer is, `Yes, they are.'" --Pat Robertson, "The New World Order," page 218

"[The] feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians." --Pat Robertson, fundraising letter, 1992
"The Constitution of the United States, for instance, is a marvelous document for self-government by Christian people. But the minute you turn the document into the hands of non-Christian and atheistic people they can use it to destroy the very foundation of our society." --Pat Robertson, The 700 Club, Dec. 30, 1981

"You say you're supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense. I don't have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist." --Pat Robertson, The 700 Club, January 14, 1991

"Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians. Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history." --Pat Robertson in a 1993 interview with Molly Ivins

[On apartheid in South Africa] "I think 'one man, one vote,' just unrestricted democracy, would not be wise. There needs to be some kind of protection for the minority which the white people represent now, a minority, and they need and have a right to demand a protection of their rights." --Pat Robertson, "The 700 Club," 3/18/92

"They have kept us in submission because they have talked about separation of church and state. There is no such thing in the Constitution. It's a lie of the Left, and we're not going to take it anymore." --Pat Robertson, address to American Center for Law & Justice
"That [separation of church and state] was never in the Constitution, however much the liberals laugh at me for saying it, they know good and well it was never in the Constitution! Such language only appeared in the constitution of the communist Soviet Union" --Pat Robertson, The 700 Club, Jan. 22, 1995

"Many of those people involved with Adolph Hitler were Satanists, many of them were homosexuals--the two things seem to go together." --Pat Robertson, "The 700 Club," 1/21/93
"It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-biased media and the homosexuals who want to destroy all Christians" --Pat Robertson, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Sept. 14, 1993

"I have known few homosexuals who did not practice their tendencies. Such people are sinning against God and will lead to the ultimate destruction of the family and our nation. I am unalterably opposed to such things, and will do everything I can to restrict the freedom of these people to spread their contagious infection to the youth of this nation." --Pat Robertson

"Modern experience has shown that usury inevitably leads to subservience. And God did not want that for his people but rather intend for them to rule... He directed that every fifty years that all debt would be cancelled, all property be redistributed, and the cycle begin again... Not withstanding the sneers of many in the banking community, it may be that God's way is the only one open to us - a year of jubillee to straighten us out." --Pat Robertson, The Secret Kingdom, 1992

"There will never be world peace until God's house and God's people are given their rightful place of leadership at the top of the world. How can there be peace when drunkards, drug dealers, communists, atheists, New Age worshipers of Satan, secular humanists, oppressive dictators, greedy moneychangers, revolutionary assassins, adulterers, and homosexuals are on top?" --Pat Robertson, "The New World Order", 1991, P. 227

"In the 1990s and beyond, the battle is not going to be fought much longer between Christianity and atheistic humanism, but between Christianity and satanic-inspired Eastern religions." --Pat Robertson, The Secret Kingdom, 1992

"I believe that he [Jesus] is Lord of the government, and the church, and business and education, and, hopefully, one day, Lord of the press. I see him involved in everything. And that's why I don't want to stay just in the church, as such. I want the church to move into the world." --Pat Robertson

"The strategy aginst the American radical left should be the same as General Douglas MacArthur employed against the Japanese in the Pacific... bypass their strongholds, then surround them, isolate them bombard them, then blast the individuals out of their power bunkers with hand-to-hand combat. The battle for Iwo Jima was not pleasant, but our troops won it. The battle to regain the soul of America won't be pleasant either, but we will win it." --Pat Robertson, in "Pat Robertson's Perspective," April-May 1992

"I've heard all this stuff about little Jewish kids being marred by having to say a prayer in Jesus' name. That's all you hear when you're with the liberals, the ACLU. `Well, think about a little Jewish child, you have no idea what went on in their mind.' But listen, we don't hear the liberals talking about what happened to Christian little children." --Pat Robertson
"I know this is painful for the ladies to hear, but if you get married, you have accepted the headship of a man, your husband. Christ is the head of the household and the husband is the head of the wife, and that's the way it is, period." --Pat Robertson, newsletter as quoted by Federal News Service, Sept. 11, 1992

" "The mission of the Christian Coalition is simple, to mobilize Christians-- one precinct at a time, one community at a time -- until once again we are the head and not the tail, and at the top rather than the bottom of our political system....the Christian Coalition will be the most powerful political force in America by the end of this decade.. We have enough votes to run this country... and when the people say, 'We've had enough,' we're going to take over!" --Pat Robertson

The interesting thing is that, simply hearing what these imbeciles say, or reading it in print, makes it seem inconceivable they should hold such power - but they do. WHY does mainstream media cater to this fascist, nonrepresentative group? One word - MONEY.

Jesus warned us of false prophets and that his ways were not of this world. When I think of Jesus in relation to any of these false facile fops, all I can imagine him doing is sweeping them outa the temple on the end of a broom and telling them NOT to come back.

Me, I'm meaner, I see them all in Gitmo under charges of money laundering, terrorism (against our community), and obstruction of justice with no sentence, just a cell, a bible and John Ashcroft singing "Let the Eagle Soar (continuously)."

I pray for it - daily...then, as Ellen DeGeneres says, "I go back to loving kindness."
(I mean who wants to spend ALL their time thinking about this horrid, hubris of hatred in God's name?)

The Pedophile Patriarchy

These are the "men" who would control women's reproductive rights:

To the LEFT Jeff Gannon the male hooker who was hired by the White House to lob softball questions and service someone at the White House on a multitude of occasions when he stayed overnight, unreported and unaccountable. (The RNC bringing values into the White House).

Homeland Security:

Breaking: Homeland Security official arrested.

Brian J. Doyle, DHS Deputy Press Secretary, has been “charged with trying to ’seduce’ a 14-year-old…girl over the Internet.”

UPDATE: Further details here: “On many occasions, Doyle instructed the victim, whom he believed to be a 14-year-old girl, to perform a sexual act while thinking of him, and described explicit and perverse sexual acts he wished to have with her, in addition to sending her numerous obscene .mpg files (digital movies). … He attempted to seduce the girl during their online chats, encouraging her to purchase a web cam so that she could send graphic images of herself to him.” April 4, 2006 10:1

Meanwhile the mainstream media in the USA have covered up, treason, trading with the enemy, illegal arms cabals, CIA drug trading, and death squads, terrorist training camps within the USA (SOA) for YEARS. In particular ANY reference to the truth about the past of the Bush family and certain American corporations, is simply whitewashed.

From Auschwitz to Abu Gharib, American industry and the Bush family have been at the forefront of trading with the enemy and funding the other side.

AND how interesting that the DISCOVERY channel was about to publish the entire expose on a pedophile ring that goes back to Poppy (gee I wonder where that nickname came from)
Bush...before it was purchased and hushed up.

Justice is a panel of judges appointed by corporate paid off hacks who bail the criminal Bush Cheney administration out of accountability.

Details Released In Agent's Sex Case Feb 14, 2006 TAMPA -
When an Orlando mall security officer responded to a complaint about a man exposing himself to a girl in the food court, the suspect hurried out of the mall and ran through the parking lot. The suspect was Frank Figueroa, then one of Florida's highest-ranking federal law enforcement officers and the former head of a national program formed to target child sex predators. [...] In her statement, the girl said Figueroa pulled up a leg of his shorts, exposed himself and masturbated for about 10 minutes. "I glanced once because he seemed very strange, and I caught a look of his penis," she said. "I was shocked, so I sat and thought of what I should do."
I am not silly enough to believe that only Republicans are pedophiles, so I have continued to run searches and simply cannot find the predisposition to pedophilia and number of arrests that seem to ripple through the RNC.

Everytime these sick little puppies gain office they attack womens rights. They seem unable to live with women on the planet as equals and evolve to a more spiritual plane - instead they want to go back to the 16th century and under the guise of carrying for children they wipe out abortion. Or, remove contraception altogther and force women to carry children from rape, etc. just like Islamic fundamentalists - exactly.

It ain't decency they are selling - it is deceit.
I'm going to tell you a story.
It's complicated. It's unpleasant, but it's also important, so I'm going to talk about things I don't talk about anymore.
It's about a victimized boy named Justin Berry, and a Bush official in Homeland Security who is a pedophile. It's about the Justice Department doing nothing with a list of 1,500 names that Justin handed them. It's about a Homeland Security department so inept they didn't even know they had a pedophile in their midst.
Early last night we found out that Bush's Deputy Press Secretary for the Department of Homeland Security is a seriously deranged man who knew that what he was doing was wrong and coached someone he thought was a 14 year old girl to hide their illicit communications. Believe me, this isn't something that comes on a man in later life. It's with him from the start. Doyle is divorced, with children. It makes me shudder.
It's quite amazing that the story about Brian Doyle broke the same day that Justin Berry was on Capitol Hill, with Kurt Eichenwald, talking about sexually exploited children and the pedophiles who corrupt them and what can go wrong on the web. That I've seen first hand.

The Franklin Coverup is detailed all over the web and I would encourage you to run your own search.

Pedophile rings have been lurking in the background of both Bush Administrations. If we do nothing else - let's stop the scapegoating of our community and bring these bastards to justice.

Enron Trail Leads to Bush and Cheney

On July 13, 1998, employees of one of the two power-marketing centers in California watched incredulously as the wholesale price of $1 a megawatt hour spiked to $9,999, stayed at that price for four hours, then dropped to a penny. Someone was testing the system to find the limits of market exploitation. This incident was the earliest indication that the people and the state could become victims of fraud. The Sacramento Bee broke the story three years later, on May 6, 2001.

Today, Californians are still paying the costs of the debacle while according to state officials the power companies who manipulated the energy markets reaped more than $7.5 billion in unfair profits.

During those early months of the Bush administration, and even during the prior transition period, Dick Cheney was deeply involved in gathering information for a national energy policy. The intelligence he gathered would provide justification for a war against Iraq but would also place White House footprints all over a fraud scam. This is how it all happened.

Ken Lay, the former chairman of Enron, enjoyed a long and close relationship with George Bush senior is a well-known fact. What isn’t so well known is that George W. Bush also benefited from a close relationship with Lay. No one supported the younger Bush quite like Lay. Enron executives contributed more than $2 million to George W. Bush’s political campaigns since 1999, earning Lay an open door to the governor’s office. Lay was also Bush’s number one choice for Treasury Secretary. A study authorized by Rep. Henry Waxman reveals that Enron had 112 known contacts with the Bush administration in 2001. This figure does not include seventy-three disclosed contacts between former Army Secretary Thomas White and his former colleagues at Enron. (Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, recently fired White.)

Significantly, Ken Lay was also a close friend to Dick Cheney who is a former Enron shareholder. It should come to no one’s surprise that given the relationships, Ken Lay was selected to work on the Bush energy transition team under the chairmanship of Cheney. Lay’s easiest assignment? He interviewed potential candidates for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, an agency that would oversee his company (and months later lead a slow, long investigation into Enron’s role in the California energy debacle). The President picked Lay’s nominee, Pat Wood, to serve as chairman of the agency.

Ken Lay was a very useful and a very knowledgeable man to have around. He knew, for instance, of the holes in the California power market that could be exploited. He tried to warn officials about the problem in 1994 when Enron testified at a Public Utility Commission hearing. Unfortunately his advice was ignored. Enron then went with the flow. It reversed itself, endorsed the system, and lauded the politicians for setting up what Enron knew was an exploitable and faulty infrastructure.
As events would unfold, the dark side of Enron got part of its comeuppance when the Justice Department began investigations of Enron’s role in the California energy disaster.

Along with Dynegy and other power brokering companies, Enron employees were subject to federal criminal charges. One Enron employee pleaded guilty to wire fraud while Dynegy agreed to pay $5 million in fines.

Enter A Little Damning Document

In April of 2001, Ken Lay handed Dick Cheney a two-page memorandum recommending national energy policy changes. The memo contained Enron’s positions on specific, rather technical issues, which were presented as a “fix” for the California crisis. (Enron brazenly advised the administration not to place price caps on energy, which would be precisely the request California officials made to the President, and which the President and the Vice President would just as brazenly deny until public pressure forced them to capitulate.)

According to a special report prepared for Rep. Henry A. Waxman, over seventeen energy policies recommended by Enron made their way into the official White House National Energy Policy report.

Congress awoke from its somnambulism, having become alarmed at Enron’s close association with the Bush administration. Congressional committees asked Dick Cheney for the names of those who advised him and the reports he relied upon in drafting the nation’s energy policy. Cheney bluntly and adamantly refused to reveal those facts. After months of standoff, the General Accounting Office (GAO) filed a suit against the Vice President in an effort to obtain the requested information. The White House then developed a fascinating legal strategy that helped them triumph over the legislative branch.

Defense attorneys from the civil division of the Justice Department should have been assigned to the case. However, in an unprecedented move, the Bush administration required the services of the nation’s number-one-gun, Theodore Olson, the Solicitor General, who normally only makes appearances before the Supreme Court. Olson, his Assistant Solicitor General, and a handpicked group of Justice Department lawyers formed a special “trial defense task force” to defend the Vice President. This act telegraphed to the court, press, and public that this was no ordinary case. The move paid off, a federal judge found for Mr. Cheney and the GAO declined to file an appeal. That, more or less, marked the end of the story. But then something happened.

On October 6, 2002, a newspaper in the UK published a little known article about Mr. Cheney’s advisers. According to Neil Mackay, an award-winning journalist, writing for Scotland’s Sunday Herald, Dick Cheney commissioned an energy report from ex-Secretary of State, James Baker III. The time of this “commission” is not reported, but since the members of the appointed task force held three videoconferences and teleconferences in December, January, and February 2000-2001, Cheney therefore logically contacted Baker some time prior to the December 2000 meeting—during the presidential transition period.
The Baker energy task force produced a report titled, Strategic Energy Policy Challenges for the 21st Century, dated April 2001. There is no mistaking the fact that reasonable, detailed and important expert advice is meted out to the new president. However, this amazing 107-page report strikes a drumbeat for action that grabs the reader as it propels a picture of a naked, energy-scarce nation, subject to energy shortages and price fluctuations, across its pages. Contrasting the state of what is, against what should be, and mercifully making powerful recommendations that will “save our economy,” it offers warnings such as: a sharp rise “in oil prices preceded every American recession since the late 1940s.”

The California energy crisis is raised again and again, along with the prophecy that America can expect “more California-like incidents” in the future. There’s even a connection made between the California crisis and the Middle East, which according to the report, “will remain the world’s base-load supplier and least expensive source of oil for the foreseeable future.” With that prophetic utterance, the stage is now set for a new actor, a new villain, and a new energy policy.

.... continued at link with "Enter Saddam Hussein"

The oil slick that covers the White House stretches from Auschwitz to Abu Gharib, and no I will not be distracted by people whining that I am comparing Auschwitz to Abu Gharib. I am not.
What I am drawing attention to is the fact, that the Bush family has been the one constant from Auschwitz to Abu Gharib - I am not comparing the facilities only the fact that in both instances the same family was involved. It is ludicrous to me that a family shown in the U. S. National Archives to have traded with the enemy and profited extensively from the profits of Auschwitz, now sits with a son in office who is instituting torture facilities and facism worldwide. One would think - DUH - that genetics, family training and a money trail a mile long just might prompt the press to report as if they lived in a democracy instead of a criminal corporate gulag.

Toadies to Treason - Lapdogs to Larceny?

Working for Change covers the farce American media has become under the Bush Administration.

BuzzFlash interview: Eric Boehlert

Calling the White House press corps lapdogs -- and proving it

Remember Whitewater? Travelgate? Ken Starr? And everybody's favorite Clinton quote, "That depends on what the definition of is, is"? The White House Press Corps' reporting of every conceivable Clinton Administration misstep rose quickly to a fevered pitch, and stayed there for eight years. So what happened after January, 2001, when George W. Bush waltzed into Washington?

Journalist Eric Boehlert asked himself that question, and the result is his carefully researched and fully footnoted new book, Lapdogs: How the Press Rolled Over for Bush, a BuzzFlash premium. What happened, as he explains here, involved both effective administration intimidation - and a measure of media collusion. Clinton's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy on gays in the military, somehow became adopted as the inside-the-beltway reporters' mantra. Kind of makes you sentimental for the Watergate era, doesn't it?
* * *

BuzzFlash: You begin your book with a very telling illustration of the transition that's occurred in the press's being accountable to citizens versus the powers that be. You begin with a description of Bob Woodward being questioned by Patrick Fitzgerald. While the whole Plamegate thing was going on, Woodward not only fails to disclose that he had been told about Valerie Plame by Scooter Libby - which seems like an incredible omission, considering this is a criminal case - but he also has been on television saying that this is sort of a second-rate prosecution and unwarranted, and claiming the whole Plamegate thing is an unnecessary investigation. He’s shilling, in essence, for the White House. You quote someone who says this is Watergate in reverse. What do you mean by that?

Eric Boelhert: If all the reporters who knew what was going on early on in the Valerie Plame case - those who got the leaks and the ones that heard secondhand about it – if everyone had just come forward with the information that they had back in September of 2003, when the Washington Post first blew the whistle on the smear campaign, the story probably could have been completely told within six or nine months. Instead, everyone held that information tight.
I think journalists did exactly the opposite of what they’re supposed to do, which is inform the public. The Woodward example was just a mind-blowing situation, where you have perhaps the most famous reporter in Washington sitting on clearly relevant and important information for more than two years. As you say - not only sitting on it, but then disparaging the prosecutor.

Not only did Woodward sit on that information, but when that story really started to heat up in July of 2005, and when the indictments were released in October 2005, if he had come forward, the heat around that story would have increased tenfold. It was already a very difficult and painful situation for the White House. If Woodward had stepped in and announced that he also had been given the leak, it just would have been a huge political problem for the White House. So you also have to keep in mind the timing, aside from the fact that he simply chose to sit on that information for two years as the criminal case progressed.
Of course, Watergate was the opposite - Woodward with Bernstein. They just pried and pried information out of their sources and relayed it to the public. In Plamegate, he got information dumped in his lap - he claims there was sort of a casual remark. Instead of passing that along to the public, he guarded it for over two years. I also mention that during Woodward’s infamous Larry King appearance on CNN, he tried to conflate, I think, the whole Valerie Plame incident into a debate about anonymous sources. But the story was never about the use of anonymous sources really. As I point out in the book, the key difference was that he used the information that Deep Throat gave him as guidelines. But in terms of the Valerie Plame story, he refused to use the information.


Most younger Americans now garner any political news from the Daily Show, where Jon Stewart provides one of the few critical voices in America. (He also produces the Colbert Report, where Stephen Colbert rips up O'Reilly by being O' Reilly. Warning, if you think at all this will be the biggest comedy rush you have had in some time).

BuzzFlash: This guy was half of the team that broke open the Watergate scandal and was key to the resignation of Richard Nixon before his actual impeachment trial. Now he sits on a piece of information relating to Plamegate. Bush’s first reaction when this finally did hit the mainstream press, was, well, I’m going to get to the bottom of this. I’m going to find the leaker. From the very beginning, Woodward is sitting on a piece of information that could blow that out of the water.

Eric Boelhert: Right.

BuzzFlash: Meanwhile, while he’s not disclosing as a reporter what could be a bombshell piece of information, he’s trashing the prosecutor. From our perspective, this is journalistic malfeasance.

Eric Boelhert: There was a lot of criticism of how the media reported the run-up to the Iraq war, but I would make the argument that the press coverage of the Valerie Plame investigation represents the most shockingly bad Beltway journalism. There’s Woodward making his decision not to come forward, despite the criminal investigation. He decided the information he had wasn’t important. He decided what was best, in terms of a criminal investigation that reached to the highest levels of the White House. He decided he was not going to share that information.
And he wasn’t alone. There were almost a dozen reporters in Washington in 2003-2004-2005 who could have broken that story or advanced it in a serious way, and none of them did. There was this race away from the Valerie Plame investigation. I think you mentioned that Bush came out at least symbolically. He said we’re gonna get to the bottom of who leaked this. But he also said in the fall of 2003, I’m not sure we’re going to find out who leaked, because there had been a history of futile attempts at solving leak investigations.

I think the press agreed with Bush – we’re never going to find out who leaked it. The press decided what’s in it for me – why am I going to try to advance the story if it’s going to mean upsetting Karl Rove, if it’s going to mean upsetting Scooter Libby, if it’s going to mean upsetting senior members of the White House who were sitting on a 65-75% approval rating.

I think the race away from the story was unconscionable. For two years, the press could have done its job, and it did not, and it was left to a federal prosecutor to pick up the pieces and ask the simple questions about what was going on.

BuzzFlash: Why, in your opinion, has the press not asked the question of President Bush that Ray McGovern asked of Donald Rumsfeld – Why did you lie us into a war?

Eric Boelhert: That’s a word that they refuse to use.

BuzzFlash: What you’ve just said about the approval rating being high is very important. The press corps is very fearful that if they tell the truth, they will get on the bad side of the White House. We had that incident when Ari Fleischer was still Press Secretary, and as he put it, questions like that are noticed around here. It seemed to send a chill through the press corps. The White House has been very successful at intimidating the press corp. If they know the truth about the Valerie Plame case, they just sit on it. They’re afraid if they tell the truth, the White House will be upset with them. What kind of press corps is that?

Eric Boelhert: Also, think back to the Clinton White House. That was a press corps that essentially existed to get on the bad side of the Clinton White House. If you didn’t attack the Clinton White House, you were ridiculed as a Clinton apologist. That goes for pundits and reporters. Now we have a press corps that, for years and years, has been afraid of upsetting the Bush White House. The double standard is overwhelming.
The Bush White House clearly laid down different rules. They came in with an enormous push-back against the press – with all sorts of creative initiatives to keep information under wraps and to bully the press, and to keep them out of the loop, and to treat them as "another special interest group." What was stunning was the complete lack of spine that the press showed when the Bush White House unveiled this revolutionary communications policy.
Obviously, after 9/11, and then the invasion of Iraq, the press showed even less commitment to trying to deal with a very aggressive Bush White House campaign to diminish the press. I think, even before 9/11, the Bush White House had declared war on the press, and the press surrendered within a matter of days. And I don’t think they thought it was any great defeat. I think they telegraphed, during the 2000 campaign, that there were different standards for Bush and Republicans. A lot of it goes back to the fear of being labeled a liberal media. I think that’s had an extraordinary effect. For the last five or six years, we’ve seen disturbing and concrete examples of what the effect can be.

BuzzFlash: There's something that you don’t emphasize much in the book, but you do point out that you just don’t get ahead in the White House press corps by being critical of the Bush Administration. You get ahead by not upsetting them. The editors or the producers report to people who are the heads of news divisions or the publishers of the paper, who report to the heads of the corporations, who report to the heads of the multi-conglomerate corporations that own the news business. As Sumner Redstone said in 2004 – "I personally like Kerry and would support him, but I’m going to vote for Bush because he’s good for Viacom."
Eric Boelhert: Right.

BuzzFlash: You don’t upset the profitability of Viacom if you work for CBS. You don’t talk about nuclear power plants or defense contractors if you work for NBC, that’s owned by General Electric. You don’t run down Jeb Bush if you work for ABC, because Disney World has gotten tremendous tax relief and legislation out of Tallahassee that favors its profitability. No reporter, unless they have a suicide pact, is going to take on the Bush Administration, because they know that’s not going to advance their career.

The Washington Post and New York Times both eventually apologized for their coverage of the Iraq war, saying they should have been more aggressive. But, like within the Administration, there were no repercussions. No one was fired. Judith Miller only left because of complications relating to the criminal prosecution, not really her reporting per se. So in essence, it’s the same thing as in the Bush Administration – they never accept the blame. They blame it on the CIA. They say there was misinformation. But there’s no repercussions for the Bush Administration, and there’s no repercussions for the media. No one was held accountable. They have become moderately more aggressive, and they do have occasional stories that expose things about the Bush Administration. We have to be fair. But they don’t seem to connect the dots.

The mainstream press basically adopted the White House line that the Central Intelligence Agency was in chaos after 9/11, which feeds into the myth that they were the ones that provided bad intelligence. And basically, that Porter Goss did a poor job, and the agency needs replacement.

But no one points to Bush and says, you’re goofing up intelligence. The buck never stops with him. He’s never brought into it. Still to this day the mainstream press doesn’t say, the future security of this country is at stake, and we have a real leadership problem from the Department of Defense, to the Vice President, to the White House. Instead, it’s a Porter Goss problem.
Many people forget that The New York Times and the Washington Post with Susan Schmidt were key cheerleaders on Whitewater and the Ken Starr investigation.

One more question. I think the general public and even BuzzFlash readers don’t understand that reporters like yourself all go to editors and have their morning meetings about what to cover. Some meet two to three times a day. Television has a morning assignment meeting. There are all these editorial judgments about what to cover made by news editors. They’re deciding, do we cover this? Do we cover that? How do we cover it? So this notion that journalism is somehow just free of subjectivity is sort of ludicrous.

Eric Boelhert: Right.

BuzzFlash: Let’s go back to the Clinton Administration for an example. An editor at the Washington Post had to be saying to Susan Schmitt – yeah, go ahead. Go full bore ahead. Whatever you get from Ken Starr, put it down there. Check it out, and we’re going with it. That’s an editorial judgment – it’s not an objective process.

Eric Boelhert: Right. Journalism is not a science. It’s incredibly subjective. The problem has been a strong mindset that takes over within the D.C. press corps. The press has been extraordinarily timid with Bush. If you just look back at the same press corps during the Clinton Administration you see that a titanic shift took place on inauguration day in 2001.
During the Clinton years there was this mindset that we can print anything we want – any half-baked allegation – as long as it’s leaked from either a prosecutor or Republicans on the Hill. And two and three months later, when nothing pans out and it turns out to be complete fantasy, A, we don’t write about it again, or B, we pretend it wasn’t fantasy and we just keep writing about it as if it were a fact. That was the mindset during the Clinton era, and the mindset during the Bush era is the complete opposite. The mindset did a complete 180.

Now you have just as unsettling and damaging a mindset as during the Clinton years. It’s a completely different standard that they have set down for the Bush Administration. My book simply details how incredibly timid are the standards they use for Bush, coming off the heels of what was probably an unprecedented aggressive standard that they used for the Democrats in the Clinton White House.

BuzzFlash: Eric, thank you for the wonderful book.
Eric Boelhert: Sure.

Lest we let CBC or BBC off the hook, why hasn't the money trail from Ralphie Reed, Abramoff to Stephen Harper been covered? OR the fact that the Afghan poppy crop just happens to be the largest in history, or that CIA drug running is legendary (58 million links when I ran a search yesterday). Indeed Harper has contracted the hardware and software for the Canadian Census system to Lockheed Martin, the largest military industrial contractor in the world, who also happens to be on the top 14 firms in human rights abuses, partaking in prison abuse in Iraq.

Ignorance is only bliss for a little while, until you discover what is really being done in your name. Then, I hope the outrage toward the mainstream media results in legal action that cleans it up and restores some integrity to the profession, because right now - they only mirror the thugs and dead enders occupying the White House.

How About a Group Impeachment?

The Nuremberg Trials brought to justice some of the major perpetrators of genocide but left untouched the source of funding that made WWII possible - American industry.

Excerpt from: "The Fourth Reich?" (Bob Fitrakis, Harvey Wasserman)

George W. Bush's grandfather helped finance the Nazi Party. Karl Rove's grandfather allegedly helped run the Nazi Party, and helped build the Birkenau Death Camp. Arnold Schwarzenegger's Austrian father volunteered for the infamous Nazi SA and became a ranking officer.
Together, they have destabilized California and are on the brink of bringing it a new Reich. With the Schwarzenegger candidacy they have laid siege to America's largest state, lining it up for the 2004 election.

Often ignored are the Bush family's post-World War II dealings with former Nazis. John Foster Dulles, who had worked with the Bush family in the Harriman Company in laundering money for Nazi Germany, was Dwight Eisenhower's Secretary of State. His brother Allen became CIA director.

In 1988 Project Censored, in its top award, noted "how the major mass media ignored, overlooked or undercovered at least ten critical stories reported in America's alternative press that raised serious questions about the Republican candidate, George Bush, dating from his reported role as a CIA 'asset' in 1963 to his presidential campaign's connection with a network of anti-Semites with Nazi and fascist affiliations in 1988." Investigative reporter Russ Bellant established ties between the Republican Party and former Axis Nazis and fascists.

Bolton, is considered by many to be a psychopath. A liar and known bully, Bush states that Bolton is most like himself. (He said it). Bolton's appointment to the UN is rather like Tony Soprano appointing "Sal" to talk to the world.

In 2000 and 2001 the Columbus Alive published a series of articles documenting further links between Bush, Sr. and the Rev. Sun Myung Moon and his own fascist networks in Japan and Korea.

Karl Rove has parallel ties. The shadowy Rove serves as "Bush's Brain" in the current White House. He is the political mastermind behind the California coup, and is now in the headlines for outing Valerie Plame, the CIA wife of Ambassador Joseph Wilson. A consummate strategist, Rove may have outed Plame in retaliation for Wilson's failure to back up the Bush claim that Saddam Hussein was buying nuclear weapons materials in Africa. According to some published reports, as many as seventy CIA operatives have been put at risk by Rove's retaliatory strike
Flying aircraft into buildings is hardly a new concept and since John Ashcroft was told not to fly on Sept. 11 we assume Condi and George felt it was dangerous enough to have the AG stand down, along with them.

Gawd and doesn't he love playing mr. dressup and doing the military rally, constantly making scripted speeches to brainwashed 18 year olds ordered to "who ah" at the appropriate moment.

more from the link above:
Rove's grandfather was Karl Heinz Roverer, the Gauleiter of Oldenburg. Roverer was Reich-Statthalter---Nazi State Party Chairman---for his region. He was also a partner and senior engineer in the Roverer Sud-Deutche Ingenieurburo A. G. engineering firm, which built the Birkenau death camp, at which tens of thousands of Jews, Gypsies, dissidents and other were slaughtered en masse.
Rove, who has been based in Utah and associated with the Mormon Church, is widely viewed as the chief engineer of the current Bush administration. He and Tom DeLay are attempting to force the Texas legislature to redistrict its Congressional delegations, adding seven sure seats to the Republican column. By controlling the state houses in New York, Florida, Texas and California, the GOP would have a lock on the four largest states in the union, and thus the ability to manipulate vote counts and strip voter registration rolls in the run-up to the 2004 election.

Delay has been indicted on charges of money laundering and illegally manipulating the Texas legislature to achieve seven gerrymandered seats for the Republican party. He is further implicated with Jack Abramoff and may face additional charges.

Did you know that Supreme Court judges can be impeached? Perhaps we could have
a GROUP impeachment?

Standing Up to the Bush Bullies

May 15, 2006


America the Fearful


In the dark days of the Depression, Franklin Roosevelt counseled Americans to avoid fear.
George W. Bush is his polar opposite. The public's fear is this president's most potent political asset. Perhaps his only asset.

Mr. Bush wants ordinary Americans to remain in a perpetual state of fear so terrified, in fact, that they will not object to the steady erosion of their rights and liberties, and will not notice the many ways in which their fear is being manipulated to feed an unconscionable expansion of presidential power.

If voters can be kept frightened enough of terrorism, they might even overlook the monumental incompetence of one of the worst administrations the nation has ever known.

Four marines drowned Thursday when their 60-ton tank rolled off a bridge and sank in a canal about 50 miles west of Baghdad. Three American soldiers in Iraq were killed by roadside bombs the same day. But those tragic and wholly unnecessary deaths were not the big news. The big news was the latest leak of yet another presidential power grab: the administration's collection of the telephone records of tens of millions of American citizens.

The Bush crowd, which gets together each morning to participate in a highly secret ritual of formalized ineptitude, is trying to get its creepy hands on all the telephone records of everybody in the entire country. It supposedly wants these records, which contain crucial documentation of calls for Chinese takeout in Terre Haute, Ind., and birthday greetings to Grandma in Talladega, Ala., to help in the search for Osama bin Laden.

Hey, the president has made it clear that when Al Qaeda is calling, he wants to be listening, and you never know where that lead may turn up.

The problem (besides the fact that the president has been as effective hunting bin Laden as Dick Cheney was in hunting quail) is that in its fearmongering and power-grabbing the Bush administration has trampled all over the Constitution, the democratic process and the hallowed American tradition of government checks and balances.

Short of having them taken away from us, there is probably no way to fully appreciate the wonder and the glory of our rights and liberties here in the United States, including the right to privacy.

The Constitution and the elaborate system of checks and balances were meant to protect us against the possibility of a clownish gang of small men and women amassing excessive power and behaving like tyrants or kings. But the normal safeguards have not been working since the Bush crowd came to power, starting with the hijacked presidential election in 2000.

After the Sept. 11 attacks, all bets were off. John Kennedy once said, "The United States, as the world knows, will never start a war." But George W. Bush, employing an outrageous propaganda campaign ("Shock and awe," "We don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud"), started an utterly pointless war in Iraq that he still doesn't know how to win or how to end.

If you listen to the Bush version of reality, the president is all powerful. In that version, we are fighting a war against terrorism, which is a war that will never end. And as long as we are at war (forever), there is no limit to the war-fighting powers the president can claim as commander in chief.
So we've kidnapped people and sent them off to be tortured in the extraordinary rendition program; and we've incarcerated people at Guantamo Bay and elsewhere without trial or even the right to know the charges against them; and we're allowing the C.I.A. to operate super-secret prisons where God-knows-what-all is going on; and we're listening in on the phone calls and reading the e-mail of innocent Americans without warrants; and on and on and on.
The Bushies will tell you that it is dangerous and even against the law to inquire into these nefarious activities. We just have to trust the king.

Well, I give you fair warning. This is a road map to totalitarianism. Hallmarks of totalitarian regimes have always included an excessive reliance on secrecy, the deliberate stoking of fear in the general population, a preference for military rather than diplomatic solutions in foreign policy, the promotion of blind patriotism, the denial of human rights, the curtailment of the rule of law, hostility to a free press and the systematic invasion of the privacy of ordinary people.
There are not enough pretty words in all the world to cover up the damage that George W. Bush has done to his country. If the United States could look at itself in a mirror, it would be both alarmed and ashamed at what it saw.

Finally we ALL need to learn to recognize bullies and how to confront them:

The USA models bullying at a national level, from Rumsfeld to Bush to Bolton the profile is the same, lying, cheating, stealing, torturing and murdering - in the name of God and democracy.

They call themselves the "elite" and think they should rule the world. I call them the bottom of the barrel. They are not intelligent, they simply do the unspeakable - the thing that leaves the rest of us holding our breaths it is always so nasty, so evil and so contrary to everything the USA stands for. ..THAT is what we are in awe of George - not bombs. Hitler had exactly the same strategy. He shocked because he did the unspeakable thing - that normal, balanced human beings do not do. Psychopaths behave that way and it is our job to hold them accountable.

Bullies are cowards and I think we have seen enough bluster of Bush and fear of direct contact with the media to see he is not exactly bursting with intellect or courage. While Cheney simply behaves like an insolent, overpaid corporate executive too long on the job.

Let's put them out to pasture - in Gitmo.
