Bush accuses "terrorists" of exploiting the truth

Bush himself is forced to make the analogy with the "tet offensive" in Viet Nam. The US has lost the "Battle of Baghdad. But, of course, it's not his fault says his press secretary. It's the fault of the "terrorists" for daring to show the truth in pictures:
"The president was making a point that he's made before, which is that terrorists try to exploit pictures and try to use the media as conduits for influencing public opinion in the United States," the White House press secretary, Tony Snow, told reporters yesterday.

—Guardian Unlimited, We've lost battle for Baghdad, US admits

Now that Bush as rescinded the right of habeas corpus, it a quantum leap to Bush merely ordering the arrest of anyone daring to exploit the truth, using pictures that don't lie, and in other ways "exploiting" the reality of an utter failed, stupid, cruel and abominable war crime.

I, FuzzFlash, hereby declare myself an enemy combatant.
Have freedom, will travel, and will not rest till this country is free. I combat the enemy wherever the enemy may be. The enemy can run, but he can't hide. Enemy combatants aim to put democratic combat on the enemy by smokin' him and his people out on November 7. The enemy may possess human shredding machines but I fear him not because he does not possess, nor will he ever possess, my soul. He may have WMDs, battalions of goons, Gulags and torturers; he may have Improvised Diebold Devices and MSM DaisyCutters, but so what. These things count for squat when confronted with an idea whose time has come. That idea is that the enemy smells bad.


75% of We The People have whiffed The Stench. ‘Fraid Pine-O-Clean isn’t gonna do the job this time,citizens. Remember when Democracy used to mean rule by the people? Reps were elected to do the peoples' bidding. Ain’t History quaint?

Should the enemy try to steal yet another election, the enemy will have to deal with several million enemy combatants, people who are prepared to assemble wherever the enemy is bunkered down, and "close the store" till the enemy is brought to Justice according to The Constitution of The United States Of America.

Without habeas corpus we live in a dictatorship. Without habeas corpus, we are ALL enemy combatants, my friends. If you’ll permit me the liberty of plain speaking: a fourth stolen election and we’re all fucked, unless we are prepared to act together like the majority we are, and reclaim what is rightfully ours. Couple of million citizens clogging D.C. would do for starters. I’ve had a gutful of these pissants. That’s why I am an enemy combatant. Given any thought to what you’ll be doing come November 8?

Here’s a quote from Uncle Duke, to colorfully illustrate what we’re dealing with.

"There was one exact moment, in fact, when I knew for sure that Al Gore would Never be President of the United States, no matter what the experts were saying* -- and that was when the whole Bush family suddenly appeared on TV and openly scoffed at the idea of Gore winning Florida.(cf, pesent demeanor of The Imbecle and his Outfit). It was Nonsense, said the Candidate, Utter nonsense. . .Anybody who believed Bush had lost Florida was a Fool. The Media, all of them, were Liars & Dunces or treacherous whores trying to sabotage his victory. . . Here was the whole bloody Family laughing & hooting & sneering at the dumbness of the whole world on National TV. The old man was the real tip-off. The leer on his face was almost frightening. It was like looking into the eyes of a tall hyena with a living sheep in its mouth. The sheep's fate was sealed, and so was Al Gore's."
* a massive lead for Gore in the Op polls, not unlike where the Dems are at now in the polls.

I could say that what is needed is a second American Revolution, but that would be inaccurate. The second Revolution has already occurred. With his heinous, odious, unconscionable, execrable Military Commissions Act, Bush has redefined the governing principles of the nation. Is that not the definition of a Revolution? The second Declaration of Independence was John Yoo's unitary executive principle, that made the President independent of any constitutional or legal constraints. Yoo and Abu Gonzales are traitors to put Benedict Arnold to shame. All of this has been financed by multinational corporations longing to be declared free of taxation, regulation, or responsibility of any kind. Yes, the second American Revolutionary War is over, and America lost.
A third Declaration of Independence and yet another Revolution will be necessary to restore America.

Sad, what you say is right on target. To nitpick, I would say that Bush's was a "counter" revolution undoing the accomplishments of the American Revolution and, a few years later, the Constitutional Convention which codified the very principles Bush has now overthrown: due process, habeas corpus, et al.

What must be done now is to oust Bush and DEMAND of the Democrats that they restore the rule of law and the Constitution drafted at Philadelphia. That makes "conservatives" of everyone opposed to Bush's radical revolution.
