Lawless Little Lord Fauntleroy

Bush challenges hundreds of laws
President cites powers of his office

By Charlie Savage, Globe Staff April 30, 2006

President Bush has quietly claimed the authority to disobey more than 750 laws enacted since he took office, asserting that he has the power to set aside any statute passed by Congress when it conflicts with his interpretation of the Constitution.

Among the laws Bush said he can ignore are military rules and regulations, affirmative-action provisions, requirements that Congress be told about immigration services problems, ''whistle-blower" protections for nuclear regulatory officials, and safeguards against political interference in federally funded research.

But with the disclosure of Bush's domestic spying program, in which he ignored a law requiring warrants to tap the phones of Americans, many legal specialists say Bush is hardly reluctant to bypass laws he believes he has the constitutional authority to override.

John Conyers, one of few with the courage to stand and face the most criminal administration in the history of America - demanding impeachment.
''There is no question that this administration has been involved in a very carefully thought-out, systematic process of expanding presidential power at the expense of the other branches of government," Cooper said. ''This is really big, very expansive, and very significant."

For the first five years of Bush's presidency, his legal claims attracted little attention in Congress or the media. Then, twice in recent months, Bush drew scrutiny after challenging new laws: a torture ban and a requirement that he give detailed reports to Congress about how he is using the Patriot Act.Continued...

George W. Bush and Dick Cheney are "thugs and dead enders", holding the United States of America (and the world) hostage, based on a terrorist attack that the majority of the world believes the Bush Administration either staged or stood down for. We already know Bush had a PDB (Presidential Daily Briefing) in August,2001 that told him Bin Laden would attack.
(Ashcroft was told not to fly). Bush prepared for the Bin Laden attack with all the care and due diligence of Katrina. He knew about it and did nothing. Worse with Katrina he actually stole funds from the disaster planning for New Orleans and spent it in Iraq.
He knew the storm was coming after that - and again- did nothing.

As a minimum this prancing, pimping, prevaricator, should be held to account for criminal negligence (planned corporate negligence) and treason. As a minimum!
