Mr. Bush Goes to GITMO: How the Patriot Act Makes Bush a 'Terrorist'!

The Patriot Act makes it a felony to disseminate or provide false information about 'terrorism'. The Bush administration is built around the lies Bush tells about 'terrorism'. All are felonies under Bush's own Patriot Act!

As Bush never told the truth about 911, al Qaeda, or the phony 'war on terrorism', then any one of his many lies chosen at random should send his sorry ass to GITMO. As Bush has falsely characterized the 'war on terrorism', any lie supporting it violates the Patriot Act. Exquisite justice! Exquisite irony! William Shakespeare could not have done a better job! Bush is stuck on his own flypaper!
The Misprision of Felony strategy for impeachment using the prosecutorial provisions of the USA Patriot Act, using the powerful discovery articles associated and the unlimited prosecutorial tools included with the USA Patriot Act, (and FISA continuation of that body of law), can discover that the CIA tapes of high level terrorist suspect detainees were destroyed in an effort to conceal.

The CIA destroyed the tapes to conceal them from government offices, but most importantly you. [See: Destruction of CIA interrogation tapes may conceal government crimes] The law doesn't protect you from concealment, only your government. Brilliance and great care coupled with great knowledge of the USA Patriot Act body of law will make some prosecutor extremely famous, I wish Bugliosi would get a clue. Any person who is indicted under the felony provisions of the USA Patriot Act will be terrified. People get stupid when they are afraid, when they are terrified. Would you like to see bush and cheney terrified, trembling, scrambling, sweating, branded as un-American? The USA Patriot Act is your law and it is the only law that will terminate this un-American administration.

--Applying the USA Patriot Act to Articles of Impeachment for bush.
That the US is waging a war on terrorism is Bush's biggest lie about terrorism.
The global war on terror is about confronting terrorist groups and the nations that harbor them. The United States does not make deals with terrorists or nations where they find safe lodging.

Leave aside the blind eye that the U.S. has always cast toward Israel's actions in the territories. How are the Bushmen doing elsewhere vis-à-vis their announced principles?

--Bring 'em On!
Does Bush have a defense? Let him tell it to the judge. Bush, of course, denies you that right!

It is said by propagandists for Bush's illegitimate administration that 'terrorists understood the value of systematic gathering and analysis of information for their deadly acts'. That should apply to Bush as well.
A captured Al Qaeda training manual stressed "gathering information about the enemy, the land, the installations, and the neighbors;" disseminating false information ("spreading rumors and writing statements that instigate people against the enemy"); carrying false identity cards, passports, and other documents; and deliberate but cautious use of modern information systems ("duration of transmission [on facsimile and wireless] should not exceed five minutes in order to prevent the enemy from pinpointing the device location").3 They communicated over the Internet, exploited lax United States requirements to obtain key documents (such as visas and social security cards), carefully moved funds through special banks known as hawalas (that are not closely regulated and create few records), and coordinated so thoroughly that each of the four hijacking teams had its own ATM card with a single PIN.4

--Information and the War on Terrorism
If it should turn out that Bush faked this so-called 'manual', then Bush goes to GITMO! If it should turn out that Bush lied about 'terrorism', Bush goes to GITMO. If it should turn out that the 'war on terrorism' is itself a panoply of lies, then Bush gets to go on a long vacation at GITMO.
"Iraq has trained Al Qaeda members in bomb-making and poisons and deadly gases."

--Bush, October 2002.
Various 'official' versions of 'al Qaeda' are unsupported by hard evidence. If any one of them is false, Bush goes to gitmo!

Let's get down to some specific lies that Bush has told --lies that will send him to GITMO.
  • The invasion of Iraq was based on a reasonable belief that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction that posed a threat to the US, a belief supported by available intelligence evidence.
  • Bush told the nation that Saddam supported terrorists and terrorism. Bush did not tell where, when and how? Bush told us that the war against Iraq was a part of the nation's 'War on Terror'. It wasn't!

    Later, Bush lied when he denied saying that the war on Iraq was a part of the 'global' war on terror. A summation of the prosecution will charge that Bush deliberately misled the nation about Iraq's alleged 'terrorist' role. Either the Iraq war was or it was not a part of the war on terrorism. It cannot be both ways. In one case or the other --Bush lied about terrorism. He gets to go to GITMO!

  • Saddam tried to buy uranium in Niger.

    To help support global terrorism we were supposed to conclude. Again ---Bush's lies gets him free transportation to GITMO!
  • Now --if Bush were telling the truth that the war against Iraq is a part of the war on terrorism, then his statement about 'uranium' in Niger is, therefore, a lie about 'terrorism'! Guess what! BUSH GOES TO GITMO!

  • The aluminum tubes were proof of a nuclear program
  • To put a fine point on it, that statement may or may not be only about 'terrorism'! But --hey --let's send Bush to GITMO! I hear the whistle a'blowin!

  • The CIA was primarily responsible for any prewar intelligence errors or distortions regarding Iraq.
  • Well --that's a no brainer! As the CIA is demonstrably the world's number one terrorist organization, Bush settles in for a long vacation in an orange suit! GITMO!

  • The US wants democracy in Iraq and the Middle East.
  • And wages a war of 'terrorist' tactics to do it! Certainly --Bush had to murder folk to set them free! More lies! Bush goes to GITMO!

Andy Ostroy has prepared quite a nice list of Bush's numerous lies. You sort out which ones are most likely to get Bush to GITMO:
Let's review Bush's impact since 2000 at home and abroad, in no particular order:

1. Lied about WMD.
2. Unilaterally invaded a sovereign nation without provocation and justification.
3. Lied during State of the Union speech re: Niger Uranium.
4. Responsible for pre-9/11 intelligence failures in White House, CIA, FBI.
5. Allowed 9-11 murderers to remain free while diverting precious military and financial resources to his vanity war in Iraq.
6. Lied about Saddam/bin Laden connection.
7. Turned Iraq into a terrorist breeding ground.
8. Lied about nation-building.
9. Opposed creation of 9-11 Commission and Homeland Security Department.
10. Disrespected and alienated the US from French, German and other key allies.
11. Lied to Americans about the real cost of war.
12. Fostered an environment of torture at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo.
13. Lined Halliburton's pockets in Afghanistan and Iraq with fat no-bid contracts.
14. Under-manned and under-equipped our armed forces in Iraq, resulting in unnecessary death and injuries.
15. Ignored the nuclear build-up in both Iran and N.Korea; marginalized Kim Jong Il.
16. Shunned Kyoto Treaty.
17. Lied about effects of man-made pollutants on the environment to support corporate pals.
18. Lied about the insolvency of Social Security.
19. Gave huge cuts to the wealthiest taxpayers.
20. Lied about true cost of health care bill.
21. Lied about Free Trade stand.
22. Bitterly divided the nation along religious, party and sexual preference lines.
23. Guilty of numerous cronyism appointments (Homeland Security, Supreme Court, etc)
24. Rewarded failures of Condi Rice and other cronies with key promotions.
25. Dreadful energy policies lead to record gas and oil prices.
26. Responsible for the largest debt in US history.
27. Colossal failure of preparedness, rescue and relief during Hurricane Katrina.
28. Fostered a culture of corruption among GOP and top leadership (Tom Delay, etc).
29. Allowed Donald Rumsfeld to keep job despite utter failure in Iraq.
30. Presided over the US's lowest popularity throughout the world.
31. Saw No Child Left Behind fail.
32. Lied last week about Iraqi troop strength during Saturday radio address. Directly contradicted by testimony given earlier in the week by Gen. Abizaid.

--The Ostroy Report
Under the terms of the Patriot Act --any lie about terrorism will get Bush the long vacation that he richly deserves. I am told that Cuba is a lovely country. But Bush won't see much of it from his tiny cell. He will be fashionably attired! In an orange suit!

The Un-American Lies of Antonin Scalia

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

It's time the American people fired the man who thinks himself 'too smart for the (Supreme) court'. Scalia has done it again. The architect of Bush v Gore, the disingenuous decision that stuck us with Bush, has stooped to yet another low. Scalia will tell bald faced lies to prop up his bullshit 'opinions'.
To bolster his argument that the Guantanamo detainees should be denied the right to prove their innocence in federal courts, Justice Antonin Scalia wrote in his dissent in Boumediene v. Bush: "At least 30 of those prisoners hitherto released from Guantanamo have returned to the battlefield." It turns out that statement is false.

According to a new report by Seton Hall Law Center for Policy and Research, "The statistic was endorsed by a Senate Minority Report issued June 26, 2007, which cites a media outlet, CNN. CNN, in turn, named the DoD as its source. The '30' number, however, was corrected in a DoD press release issued in July 2007, and a DoD document submitted to the House Foreign Relations Committee on May 20, 2008 abandons the claim entirely."

--Scalia Cites False Information in Habeas Corpus Dissent
Neither logic nor the 'rule of law' is among Scalia's strong suits. How did he manage to get a law degree? Until this latest outrage, Scalia had said that the high court's decision restoring Habeas Corpus would 'almost certainly cause more Americans to be killed’. Hey! Scalia! Debate me on that one. I need fresh meat.
Conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, however, is outraged. In his dissenting opinion, he devoted an entire section to “a description of the disastrous consequences of what the Court has done today,” a procedure “contrary to my usual practice,” he admitted. Scalia adopted extreme rhetoric about the impacts of the decision, calling it a “self-invited…incursion into military affairs” that would “almost certainly” kill Americans. Some lowlights:

– “America is at war with radical Islamists. … Our Armed Forces are now in the field against the enemy, in Afghanistan and Iraq.”

– “The game of bait-and-switch that today’s opinion plays upon the Nation’s Commander in Chief will make the war harder on us. It will almost certainly cause more Americans to be killed.”

– “Today the Court warps our Constitution.”

– “The Nation will live to regret what the Court has done today.”

It is unlikely that the Supreme Court’s decision will have the impacts that Scalia claims. As Kennedy explained, “Liberty and security can be reconciled; and in our system they are reconciled within the framework of the law.” Discussing the restoration of habeas at Guantanamo last year, Colin Powell noted:
The concern was, well, then they’ll have access to lawyers, then they’ll have access to writs of habeas corpus. So what? Let them. Isn’t that what our system’s all about? And by the way, America, unfortunately, has too many people in jail, all of whom had lawyers and access to writs of habeas corpus. And so we can handle bad people in our system.

--Scalia: Court’s Decision Restoring Habeas ‘Will Almost Certainly Cause More Americans To Be Killed’»
I am still amazed that a court whose job is to measure the nation's statutory laws against the 'supreme law' of the land could have ruled in Bush's favor on any issue. One had hoped SCOTUS would redeem itself for a bone-headed decision styled Bush v Gore, a disastrous, politically motivated decision that replaced the rule of law with political expediency.

Later, by ruling that habeas corpus protections apply to detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, the high court held out the promise that it might yet rise above the muck left us in Bush v Gore and by Bush's war on the Constitution!

In the majority opinion, Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote: “We hold these petitioners do have the habeas corpus privilege”. For an administration that thought the fix was in, that it had sufficient ringers on the court, the decision must have come a shock.

Scalia's 'war on logic' is even older. In Bush v Gore, the 'decision that made no law', Scalia argued that 'continuing the recount' would be harmful to Bush. Well, I would hope so! That's the very purpose of elections. The candidate who gets the fewer number of votes is supposed to lose!

Being a disingenuous, snake oil salesmen is one thing. But telling a bald face lie in support of an argument in a decision of the high court is 'intellectual dishonesty' of the highest order.

It's time to impeach Scalia! Scalia doesn't like his job anyway. He thinks himself 'too smart' for it. Let's oblige him by firing his sorry ass.
According to news reports, Scalia, speaking to the ultra-conservative Intercollegiate Studies Institute, read from the Lawrence opinion in mocking tones. Ironic, inasmuch as the 50-year-old institute has says its mission is to "enhance the rising generation's knowledge of our nation's founding principles - limited government, individual liberty, personal responsibility, free enterprise and Judeo-Christian moral standards." The organization, like its famed speaker, draws the line at your individual liberty. They get theirs, you don't get yours if it is contrary to theirs. And there is only one Judeo-Christian moral standard--their own.

Scalia is not alone in his condemnation of his colleagues on the high court. Clarence Thomas has repeatedly talked about the cold and lonely place that is the Court. He shows his contempt for oral arguments by generally refusing to participate.

Why is it that the right, especially the religious right, represented by the likes of Scalia on the court, are so totally unaccepting of another's point of view? Do they truly believe that they have all of the answers to all legal, legislative, and social issues? This week I gave a legal seminar to attorneys in a part of Virginia where Rev. Pat Robertson seems to have a lock on "truth." A couple of religious zealots in the seminar derided other attorneys who tried to talk about life and death issues such abortion, end-of-life treatment, stem cell research, and health care for all Americans. We were supposed to be talking about legal conundrums and challenges.

--ELAINE CASSEL, Antonin Scalia's Contempus Mundi
Let's take the longer view. This government has become illegitimate by every definition of that term. Therefore, according to sound principles practiced by the Barons who forced King John to sign the Magna Carta and, more recently, the principle espoused by such disparate figures as Thomas Jefferson and Che Guevara, it is the right of the people to abolish the government.

It's time to start all over. And when we've done it, when we've plugged up the loopholes that even the disingenuous Scalia can't slither through, then a new government should give Scalia the notice that his 'services' are no longer required. He should have no complaints. After all, Scalia has said that he is 'too smart' for the court!

Why were 'first responders' decontaminated at the Pentagon?

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

Decontamination is done when one is exposed to radiation! Why, then, were 911 'first responders' to the Pentagon de-contaminated? That they were is compelling evidence that DU [Depleted Uranium] ammunition and armour-piercing technology were present; it is compelling evidence that Bush's 'official conspiracy theory' of 911 is utter bullshit! If DU had been used at the Pentagon, then the fire and damage was most certainly not caused by a hijacked 757.

There is not a shred of hard evidence to support any part of Bush's 'official theory' which fails to explain anything about the Pentagon crash. A more rational explanation is required consistent with observed and verifiable facts on the ground and in the photos. Bush's official theory merely ignores the difficult parts; its authors hoped that you would not notice.

Facts unexplained by the 'official' theory include:
  • a 16 x 20 penetration hole much too small accommodate a 757
  • a punch out hole in the inner ring (too small; a soft, aluminum bodied 757 would not have made it that far anyway)
  • the utter lack of even so much as a skid mark on a pristine, putting green lawn
  • no wings were ever recovered from the lawn, the building, or the inner ring. Where are they?
  • Donald Rumsfeld referred to a 'missile that struck this building'; a 757 is NOT a missile but a U.S. Global Hawk most certainly is --and it carries a payload.
  • the total debris gathered is but a small fraction of the total debris that would have been left by an airliner. [See: conservation of matter and energy] According to the 'conservation of energy and matter, neither energy nor matter is ever destroyed; it merely changes form. Whatever struck the Pentagon would leave behind its own weight in debris.
That the Bush 'official conspiracy theory' violates the long established principle of the 'conservation of matter and energy' is the smoking gun. The only other explanation is that 911 was an inside job and no airliner ever struck the Pentagon.

It is the job of 'theories' in law, science or forensics to explain. A 'theory' raising more questions than it explains is a bad theory --even if it is official. Bush's official conspiracy theory of 911 is worse than 'bad theory' --it's a treasonous lie.

Official FEMA photographs from the Pentagon depict what is obviously an engine rotor with a diameter estimated at about three feet, obviously from an aircraft which is credibly estimated (from the photos) to be about 1/3 the size of each of two much larger 757 rotors. Larger rotors, traceable to a 757 were NEVER found at the Pentagon. Had a 757 crashed, the rotors of titanium-steel alloy to withstand interior engine heat, would have survived to be found. That they were not proves that they were never there! Ergo: NO 757 ever crashed the Pentagon --hijacked or no!

The photographs of the 'rotor' were published in the American Free Press and, so far, no one has dared claim that it is the rotor of a 757 engine --an aircraft that we are told hit the Pentagon. The engine rotor from a 757 is about three times the size at about 9 feet in diameter. If an airliner had crashed the Pentagon, two such rotors --each some 9 feet in diameter would have been found. They were not found because they were never there.

The three-rotor turbine was found near insulation and part of a 'housing', evidence that it was the wreckage of a much smaller aircraft than a 757 --a U.S. Global Hawk, perhaps. In any case, its presence does not support Bushco's 'official conspiracy theory'; moreover, the 'official conspiracy theory' cannot explain the presence of small aircraft wreckage. The 'official conspiracy theory' utterly falls apart.

The Pentagon was and remains among the most 'surveilled' buildings in the world. Hundreds, perhaps, thousands of frames were taken of whatever it was that crashed the Pentagon. The point is clear: the debate about what actually struck the Pentagon could have been put to rest before it began had the government --the Bush administration --released all the photos that were taken that day. If Bush is annoyed because people demand the truth, he has only himself to blame. Bush could have given himself up, confessed, submitted to trial, been convicted and hanged! It would haved saved the nation a nightmare.

Now --if Bush is guilty, his refusal to release the photos is completely understandable! Guilty people are highly motivated to hide or destroy evidenceA photo of a Global Hawk, for example, is compelling evidence, perhaps a 'smoking gun', that the attack on the Pentagon was an inside job. If Bush were entirely innocent of all wrong doing in connection with 911, it would have been in his interest to release every photograph and to have ordered a complete and thorough investigation of 911. But --instead --Bush chose to cover it up and accuse those questioning him of high treason! Fact is --only if Bush is guilty is it in his interest to 'cover it up'. Bush covered up 911 and ordered physical evidence destroyed --NOT the behavior of an innocent man! 911 continues to be covered up to this day! Draw your own conclusions.

The nail in the coffin is the fact that 911 responders were de-contaminated at the Pentagon. The official theory doesn't even try to explain that fact! It was assumed that we would never find out about it. That 911 responders were de-contaminated does two things: 1) it completely demolishes the 'official conspiracy theory'; 2) it is material evidence that whomever ordered the 'responders' had reason to believe that dangerous radiation posed a threat to workers on the site. That the decontamination took place is evidence that they had been correct!

A 757 airliner is a civilian craft. It is not nuclear powered; it does not carry a nuclear war head or hardened nose cone. It carried no weaponry --conventional or nuclear! Had a 757 crashed the Pentagon there would have been no need to order decontamination procedures. No such procedures were carried out in New York. Clearly, 'officials' knew at the time that a civilian airliner had not crashed the Pentagon. Moreover, the only scenario that fully explains the necessity of decontamination procedures is that a military craft crashed into the Pentagon. It is my belief that that is what happened in fact.

As I have written time and again, Bush's official conspiracy theory is full of holes.
  • No part of it is defensible.
  • There is not a shred of hard evidence in support of it.
  • The 'story' itself is inconsistent.
  • It violates Occam's Razor, raising more questions than it explains.
  • It's a lousy theory. Even a bad theory should --at least --'sound' credible. Bush has only shock, trauma, grief and misplaced patriotism in his defense.

By contrast, every explanation is, in fact, a theory. Theories, despite what Bush and the media would have you believe, are how both law and science proceed. A set of related facts are explained by 'theories' which must, of necessity, explain all facts. Theories inconsistent with proven facts must be discarded as false. Bush's theory explains nothing and is inconsistent with established science. By contrast, a technology called 'Global Hawk may very well explain the seemingly inexplicable events of 911 and, at the same time, point an accusing finger.

The salient feature of Global Hawk technology is that it is operated by remote control. Google 'Global Hawk'. You will find several articles about how the US outfitted a plane with Global Hawk technology and flew it from California to Australia. No human pilot! No Arab hijackers! Remote control.
America's greatest crime against humanity is radioactive genocide particularly against the children of Iraq who are the innocent victims of our illegal war, occupation and economic rape of Iraq. We have the blood of countless innocent children on our hands and it will take generations to remove the stain of our illegal and inhumane transgressions. Currently, more than 50 percent of Iraqi cancer patients are children under the age of 5, up from 13 percent. Children are especially vulnerable because they tend to play in areas that are heavily polluted by depleted uranium.

--America's greatest crime is radioactive genocide
The most obvious holes in Bush's official conspiracy theory of 911 are connected with two buildings: WTC-7, ordered 'pulled' by Larry Silverstein; and the Pentagon where the 'debris' recovered doesn't add up to a 757 airliner which would have left behind several times the wreckage that was, in fact, recovered! [See: 911 ] The single engine 'rotor' that was found was only three feet in diameter. If a 757 had struck the Pentagon, two engines with rotors of about 9 feet in diameter would have been recovered. In fact, no other Pentagon wreckage was ever traced to an airliner of any sort.

The main reason for using "dense" or "heavy metal" in new version hard target bombs and cruise missiles is the increased kinetic energy available for an existing delivery system. High density metal (DU is 2.4 x heavier than Iron) means that the same weight length penetrator can be smaller diameter. This is important because new upgrades have to fit the same size missile bodies or bomb dispensers. See the FAS site Research data on ground penetration weapons relates penetration effectiveness to length against cross section area - thinner ones go deeper for the weight, whatever they are made of.

The pyrophoric (burns in air) quality of DU that helps it burn its way through armor is not relevant for the first stage of hitting hard targets. Bombs and cruise missiles go slower than anti-tank shells so DU is less likely to ignite on initial impact at slower speeds. Kinetic energy and nose cone design are most important to go through earth and concrete. Tungsten may be best for the tip if is not too brittle. But it would be far more expensive than DU for the main ballast or liners.

--Depleted Uranium Shells Against Afghanistan Population
If a real investigation of 911 should conclude that the weapon of choice was a Global Hawk, then the only conclusions consistent with that are:
  1. 911 was an inside job;
  2. the 'President' actively tried to cover up the crime of mass murder to protect members of his administration and to hide his own complicity;
  3. that tax monies --paid by US citizens to 'their' government were misappropriated and applied to the mass murder of fellow citizens.
Traditionally, treason is the name given serious acts of disloyalty to one's sovereign or one's nation. It was not until 1990, that the Criminal Justice Act (1990) removed the death penalty for acts of treason. But 911, is not only an act of high treason --the supreme act against one's country. 911 is a series of 'mass murders'. Certainly, if Bush were an ordinary human being subject to the laws that every other person is subject to, this crime would have landed him on death row in Texas awaiting a needle and an IV cocktail.

No Windows on Flight 175

It is hard, offhand, to cite a single crime in world history that is the equal of 911 in terms of sheer evil and horror. The name Bush will surely live in infamy. If Bush cannot be held accountable to the rule of law --which he claims to be above -- then it is the patriotic duty of good, truth-loving Americans to keep alive his memory. The name 'Bush' should, by rights, live forever in infamy beside the names of history's great mass murderers --Nero, Hitler, Stalin, and Pol Pot!

How to remember George Carlin

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

There's no point is trying to write an article about George Carlin. In this case, the platitudes just don't work. There is no way to sum up what Carlin meant to a generation being pushed through a human sausage grinder called Viet Nam, a generation that witnessed the US government open fire and murder its own citizens. It's enough to view Carlin and laugh with him at every stupid thing that's been done to us. As Carlin might have put it: it must really piss those mother fuckin' cocksuckers off! Sorry, George, wherever you are. I just couldn't get all seven of them in. There was, after all, only one George Carlin.

Following is a 'video playlist' of several of Carlin's greatest routines as well as the obligatory 'obit'.

George Carlin R.I.P.

I forwarded an email with news about Carlin. The People's Voice were kind enough to quote me:
"--a 'funny man', to be sure, but much, much more. Carlin was a worldly wise man, a latter day Voltaire who 'cut through the crap' to expose the frauds behind many curtains."

- Len Hart
Carlin is already missed! But he will never be forgotten. Whenever anyone in authority does something stupid, mean, or just plain crooked, George had already skewered them. Whenever a prig presumes to authority, George had a list of seven words that still sums them up!

Don't mourn Carlin's passing. Go get a CD of one of his old 'albums'. Put it on and have a laugh at the expense of every stupid jerkoff that makes up the American establishment. Laugh it up! Carlin lives!

Bush's Capital Crimes in his own words

Bush accuses critics of Abu Ghraib of 'slandering America'. Bush, however, had eviscerated America, trashed its Constitution. How dare this dumbass accuse those who have exposed his capital crimes of 'slandering America?!

I have a message for Bush: you are NOT America!

Regulars to this blog know that since its inception, I have charged that George W. Bush has committed 'capital crimes'. He has done so knowing that they were capital crimes. So arrogant is this mediocre excuse for a human being that he simply never thought that the people of the US would catch on to his 'act', in fact, his bloody criminal fraud.

Having commented on this blog, 'WindHarps' has now put together in one You Tube 'post' a veritable treasure trove of videos in which Bush reveals to the world his venality, his stupidity and his arrogance. There is nothing more insufferable than an idiot so arrogant that he thinks his intellectual betters will never catch him in his lies, will never dare to expose to the world the millions of deaths for which he is responsible! And because Iraq is a war of naked aggression, those deaths --military and civilian --are each one count in a murder indictment that will include more than a million victims.
Bush's Supreme (Court) Hypocrisy: "Slander[ing] America"

Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib, Rendition? "Of course if you want to slander America, you can look at it one way." Abu Ghraib? "This is [just] the action of some soldiers."

From :
During an interview with Sky News, Bush accused British journalist Adam Boulton of "slander[ing] America."

Boulton: "And yet there are those who would say, look, let's take Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib and rendition and all those things, and to them that is the, you know, the complete opposite of freedom."

Bush: "Of course if you want to slander America, you can look at it one way. But you go down — what you need to do — I think I suggested you do this at a press conference — if you go down to Guantanamo and take a look at how these prisoners are treated — and they're working it through our court systems. We are a land of law."

Face The Nation's Bob Schieffer Sums Up Torture as Legal

General-Abu Ghraib-Bush Officials-War Crimes.

The Supreme Court Overruled Bush (a 3rd Time), Saving Habeas Corpus: "The justices, voting 5-4, said a 2006 law unconstitutionally stripped Guantanamo prisoners of the right to file so-called Habeas Corpus petitions. The majority rejected arguments that a system of limited judicial review...was adequate to protect inmate rights."

Bush's Response: Threatened (more) possible legislation (forgetting that their Majority was lost in Nov. 2006). The Military Commissions Act was an override of the Supreme Court, and a retroactive cover for War Crimes. Who has slandered America, and everything it once stood for?

Bush: "Bypassing the Constitution means that we did something outside the bounds of the Constitution."

Yes, that's exactly what it means.

Supreme Hypocrisy.

Supreme "Tortured" Logic.

Supreme Bullshit from a regime defined by "bullshit"!

A Different Supreme Court Awaits.

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain

It's hard to stop buying oil when the world's economy is based on it. But --start! An economy based upon oil will have to fall before anything is done or changed. As long as the US economy is based upon a resource that it cannot produce economically, the US will continue to blackmail oil producing nations with nukes.

The US has become MUGGER NATION!.

Why is a different standard applied to gangs of crooks than apply to crooks individually?

The source of most US crookery abroad is the 'Military/Industrial Complex' --a high sounding name for a gang of ruthless, venal corporations who openly conspire to hijack the apparatus of state for business purposes. The enforcement arm of the MIC is 'Blackwater USA' a private firm best described as 'paid thugs', professional muggers! Individuals who do that are called either 'criminals' or 'terrorists'.

Any political party supporting this arrangement is a criminal conspiracy. Any individual providing material support is a crook! The GOP is a criminal conspiracy and its leadership should be prosecuted under RICO statutes. Sadly, Democrats will never change anything as long as they are content to lick up the leavings.

Though M*A*S*H informed us that 'Suicide Is Painless", it solves nothing. The cure for addiction is never painless but must begin if the US has any hope of surviving. Suffer a little pain for a better world. Stop feeding the beast! Stop addressing him as 'The Great and All Poweful Oz'! He's a hologram!
The machine cannot continue unless you continue. You are the power that turns the wheel. Step away from the wheel. As one more slithering entity calls out for the murder of a truthseeker you must now call out for justice. We are in dire need of a new Nuremberg. Those who have killed without conscience must be called into the dock. Justice must be done for the dead and dishonored. The evidence is vast and convincing; the perpetrators known and identified.

Can you hear the rushing of the waters? Can you see the events near and far that tell you the water, which is not water, is uncomfortably close? Can you feel the wind that drives the specters in the mist? Will you go or will you step away from the wheel?

Michael Reagan is a product of the 'machine'. The radio stations that carry his venom sell advertising that shills the products of an economy that is utterly dependent upon the continued theft --by the US --of the resources of other nations and other individuals. Theft! In fact, a mugging. The US overtly threatens other nations with nukes! 'Give us your oil or a fat juicy cut or get nuked!' Millions deplore such tactics yet they remain in the play book. Too few have stepped away from the wheel.
The Wizard of Oz was written at the turn of the century, so how could the author have known America was going to be drugged? The Crown has been playing the drug cartel game for centuries. Just look up the history of Hong Kong and the Opium Wars. The Crown already had valuable experience conquering all of China with drugs, so why not the rest of the world? What was the Emerald City? The Federal Reserve System. [note: the author quoted cites the 'Fed'. I think the machine if much bigger even and includes the Fed, the MIC, the US 'corporotacracy', et al.]

Who finally exposed the Wizard for what he really was? Toto, the ugly (or cute, depending on your perspective) and somewhat annoying little dog.

Toto means "in total, all together; Latin in toto." What was it that the witch wanted after she alleged that the little dog had bitten her? TOTO. ... everything. Notice how Toto was not scared of the Great Wizard's theatrics, yet he was so small in size, compared to the Wizard, that no one seemed to notice him? The smoke, flames and holographic images of Oz were designed to frighten people into doing as the Great Wizard commanded. Toto simply padded over, looked behind the curtain (the COURT, etc.), saw it was a scam, started barking until others paid attention to him and came to see what all the barking was about.

Who was behind the curtain? Just an ORDINARY PERSON controlling the levers that created the illusion of the Great Wizard's power and authority. When Toto pulled back the curtain and completely exposed him, the charade was at an end. (The veil hiding the corporate legal fiction and its false courts was removed.) The Wizard's game was UP. What was he after all? ... a con-man. A FRAUD. We can see, in this tale, just how loud the bark from a little dog can be.

Start thinking about the various ways in which you have supported this "hologram", this phony wizard, this great beast and then stop doing it. Stop supporting the machine and stop supporting it's "mugger" government. When enough people have stoppedfeeding this beast, the beast will die!
