Bush defies Congress and the people with his every signing statement yet Congress seems strangely acquiescent. What reason have we to expect that Bush will suddenly stop defying Congress and the people? And, if he should be impeached, what reason have we to believe he will leave willingly?
The situation is surreal if not unprecedented. Although Bush enjoys the support of only about 28 percent of the American people, he faces no real Congressional opposition. What gives? I am more angry with Democrats than with the GOP. I had higher hopes for the Dems. I know the GOP to be a crime syndicate masquerading as a political party and am never disappointed.
Democrats were given majorities in both houses primarily because the people are sick, tired and disgusted with Bush's ongoing war crime, his Orwellian perpetual war. They are sick and disgusted with Bush's unseemly power grabs, his dumb ass arrogance, the unholy combination of stupidity and venality. Bush poses a clear and present danger to civilization.
Perhaps this is just the calm before the storm. Or worse --there will be no storm. Will we all go quietly into that good night where the Constitution, just a "goddamn piece of paper", is overtly trashed, Congress sent packing, and the high court kept around for the robes and the gravitas they bring to it all?
As Paul Craig Roberts pointed out --the bait-and-switch White House told the American people that the war on Iraq would last three weeks, six weeks --tops! The US has been stuck like flypaper for some six years. Now Bush tells us that the US will build permanent bases. He intends to keep the US in Iraq forever. I don't think so.
Roberts calls the comparison to Korea, a false analogy and so it is. It is said that a permanent US presence is necessary for Iraq's security. But we weren't told that going in and the biggest threat to Iraqis is us, as in, US. Roberts again points out that some 50 years after the "end" of combat in Korea, US troops are still there. US troops are likewise stationed in Europe some six decades after the end of World War II. [See: The neocon threat to American freedom] It's time to reassess the presence of "permanent" bases in Europe. It's a complete waste of taxpayer money, a gesture that means but one thing: US imperialism. To the rest of the world US imperialism means "oursourced murder".
Surely, it was obvious that we are in trouble when the "media" allowed Gen. Hayden get away with lying about the Fourth Amendment. Where are the Edward R. Murrows and Walter Cronkites of this generation? Good night and good luck, indeed! You're gonna need it.
The people have spoken and they are pissed. Bush's war on terrorism has failed to make us safe, yet he wants our Democracy for his sorry efforts. I was tempted to write that Bush should be given an ultimatum: end the war or be impeached! But, in fact, he should be impeached, tried, convicted, jailed and turned over to the Hague for war crimes trials anyway. This is not negotiable. The constitution is not negotiable. American Democracy is not negotiable. The time for making nice-nice is over! We shall not plea-bargain away our rights!
As I wrote recently, the people themselves have a remedy. There is sure to be a Federal Judge friendly to a petition to convene a Federal Grand Jury for the purpose of investigating a smorgasbord of charges against a crime syndicate better known as the Bush administration. Find that judge! Your honor, if you should read this blog, we have a job for you. Convene a grand jury to investigate George W. Bush and his entire, crooked gang. You will have probable cause in spades.
If the Congress will not end this war, this crooked administration, the people must! Enough of this crap is enough!
Bush cannot find comfort in the public's recent disaffection with the Democrats in Congress. When politicians learn how to read a poll, they will learn that the people of the US want the war against Iraq ended and they want it ended now! When the people, at last, regain control of a rogue government, the war hawks will be sent to the Hague for war crimes trials. Round-up time on the ranch.
The problems the nation faces are bi-partisan ones, and will only be solved with bi-partisan ropes around bi-partisan necks, and arguing over which one deserves the tallest tree and the shortest rope is a waste of time. - M. R.
Bush rewrites the laws passed by Congress. He does this by decree, euphemistically called "signing statements". Will the high court strike them down? Possibly, but that will not happen until a case is brought. So sweeping are the powers that Bush has now arrogated unto himself, it is hard to imagine how a single case will make any difference or undo the many harms already done.
This memorandum addresses the matter of how we can maximize the fact of our incumbency in dealing with persons known to be active in their opposition to our Administration, Stated a bit more bluntly --how we can use the available federal machinery to screw our political enemies.Bill Clinton is often associated with a Fleetwood Mac song called "Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow". But Bush is the living proof that the GOP never stopped thinking about ways to screw their "political enemies". The problem is the GOP made of the American people an enemy.The people are sovereign. What is to be said of a political party that makes of the people, the sovereign, an enemy? The word traitor comes to mind.
The GOP has deteriorated over some 30 years but I have news for them. The Constitution was not negotiable in Nixon's day. It is not negotiable now. The GOP is not a political party. It's a criminal conspiracy. 911 is a gestalt of many crimes among many more.
Congressional Memorandum: Summary of Prima Facie Evidence of Treason
A Summary of the threshold of prima facie evidence is as follows.I. The attacks of 9/11, as portrayed in the official account, could not have succeeded if standard operating procedures between the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and NORAD had been followed. The Pentagon, under the leadership of Donald Rumsfeld, has provided three mutually inconsistent accounts of NORAD’s response, which means that at least two of them are false. Moreover, the third account, articulated by the 9/11 Commission, is contradicted by a wide range of facts, including evidence that the FAA had notified NORAD in a timely fashion. There must have been stand-down orders, and these could have come only from the highest levels of the Pentagon and the White House.
II. Overwhelming evidence exists that the collapses of the Twin Towers and Building 7 were instances of controlled demolition, and/or of the application of exotic weapons such as land-based, air-based or possible space-based Directed Energy Weapons (DEW). But al-Qaeda operatives could not have obtained the needed access to the buildings to plant the explosives and would not have ensured that the buildings come straight down. Nor could al-Qaeda operatives have obtained command and control of advanced Directed Energy Weapons, Microfusion devices (4th generation mini-nuclear weapons), bunker-busters, or other exotic weapons alternatives that are known to be in the deployment or testing phase in the US Defense arsenal. The controlled demolition and/or Directed Energy Weapons (DEW) or exotic weapons application, therefore, had to be the work of U.S. Government and other insiders. That President Bush was one of those insiders is suggested by the fact that his brother and cousin were principals in the company in charge of WTC security. Complicity at the highest levels of the federal government is also indicated by the removal of evidence (the collapsed steel), which at a crime scene is normally a federal offense. Finally, if the airplane strikes could have occurred only with the consent of the President and the Secretary of Defense (as suggested in the previous point), the coordination of these strikes with the demolition of the buildings - and/or with the use of exotic weapons such as Directed Energy Weapons - implies their involvement in the latter as well.
III. Overwhelming evidence also exists for the conclusion that the attack on the Pentagon was an inside job. That the official story could not be true is evident from many facts: Alleged hijacker Hani Hanjour’s incompetence; the choice of the Pentagon west wing as the target; the impossibility of a commercial airliner’s coming back to Washington undetected and hitting the Pentagon unless permitted; and the lack of physical evidence consistent with an attack by a Boeing 757. That the strike was an inside job is implied by the falsity of the official story, the evidence that the strike was made by a military aircraft, the removal of evidence, and the government’s refusal to release videos of the strike. This operation could hardly have been planned without the involvement of Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld.
9/11 & DU at the Pentagon
In April, 2007, Leuren Moret exposed the U.S. military’s illegal use of Depleted Uranium (DU) weapons in target practice in Hawaii, in violation of U.S. military environmental regulations. The elevated radiation readings she recorded were carried by ABC-TV news in Hawaii on April 29 & 30, 2007.
Leuren Moret reported similar elevated radiation readings downwind from the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. on September 11, 2001. Two days after 9/11, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) confirmed that the Pentagon crash site rubble was radioactive and that the probable contaminant was Depleted Uranium (DU). The entry and exit holes through the Pentagon crash site were the signature of a kinetic energy penetrator, such as a Cruise missile, and the term “punch-out hole” was written by crash site investigators over the exit hole. This is a military term used for kinetic energy penetrators. Major Doug Rokke, former Director of the Gulf War I DU Cleanup Team, reported that an email from the Pentagon 30 minutes after impact confirmed a Cruise missile hit the Pentagon on 9/11. Recently vast Uranium deposits have been reported in Khazakhstan and Afghanistan. Khazakhstan is expected to out-produce Canada (now the world's top producer) in Uranium production within 12 years. This exposes the economic interests behind the events of 9/11, specifically the unjustified military attack by the U.S. on Afghanistan using 9/11 as a pretext.
IV. Complicity at the highest levels of the federal government is also indicated by President Bush’s remaining at the Florida Elementary school after it was evident---given the truth of the official account---that the United States was experiencing a surprise attack. This behavior makes sense only if Bush and his lead Secret Service agent knew that there would be no attack on the school.
V. The complicity of Vice President Cheney in the attack on the Pentagon and the downing of Flight 93 is implied by the testimony of Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta in conjunction with the false claims of the 9/11 Commission, under the guidance of administration insider Philip Zelikow, as to when Cheney went to the Presidential Emergency Operations Center (PEOC) and when he issued the shoot-down authorization.
VI. The conclusion from the evidence that members of the Bush administration orchestrated the attacks of 9/11 is reinforced by the fact that they had some huge projects---prosecuting wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and obtaining funding to accelerate the technological transformation of the military---that would likely be possible only in the event of “a new Pearl Harbor.”
The establishment of an International Citizen's 9/11 War Crimes Tribunal is justified, given that official institutions in the U.S. have failed to assign legal accountability for the False Flag Operation of 9/11. Representative John Conyers, Jr., Chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee and his senior staff personally reviewed the 9/11 Independent Prosecutor Act and Congressional Memorandum following the 2006 U.S. Mid-term Election and Senior Staff met twice with representatives of the 9/11 Independent Prosecutor Act. The Chairman refused to introduce the Act, despite support for the Act by his Senior Staff. The 9/11 Commission failed to take testimony under oath from Bush and Cheney, and reached fraudulent conclusions.
9/11 As A War Crime
The False Flag Operation of 9/11 was the pretext for, and an integral part of the planning and execution of the illegal War of Aggression in 2001 against Afghanistan and of War Crimes committed by the United States in Afghanistan, as found by the Final Judgment, International Criminal Tribunal for Afghanistan at Tokyo. The Court found the use of Depleted Uranium (DU) weapons in Afghanistan to constitute War Crimes, Genocide, Crimes Against Humanity, and Omnicide. The False Flag Operation of 9/11 is a legal component of these War Crimes, and the perpetrators of 9/11 are guilty Aggressive War, Genocide, Crimes Against Humanity, and War Crimes.
