Impeachment is only a planned diversion… But you aren’t smart enough to figure that out!

In My Opinion……

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Trump is not the best president we ever had. And Clinton would have been many times worse.

This phony impeachment situation is a bipartisan effort to divert the American public from the collapsing banking systems, and, more importantly….to keep us fighting amongst ourselves. If we were to stop attacking one another the planned and anticipated civil revolt might not happen. And, if the efforts to manipulate the public into rising up fail, all that military equipment that has been doled out to our former “peace officers” who now are called “law enforcement” officers, will sit idle. If the intended use for military equipment in the hands of civil authorities was anything but advanced preparation for what our own government intends to do to us, I don’t know what that reason would be.

There is absolutely NO intention of impeaching Trump. While this vote may have cleared the House, it will never clear the Senate which is controlled by Republicans. The Democrats knew this when they started the stage show and the Republicans played the wounded party. End of impeachment story. You got had America! And all those royal jackasses in D.C. were in on the joke.

Things could only have been worse if Hillary Clinton had been put in office. Maybe ask yourself why those in the House and Senate have not investigated her? Why is she not in prison? Where was the DOJ on that one?

Trump serves a purpose. Widely recognized as being a bully, amoral, childish in his temperament and possibly in the early stages of dementia, he is a useful tool for those who are seeking to overthrow our Constitution, and our representative republic. This man has no knowledge of history, of what life is like for us out here in no man’s land, of how government is supposed to work or what the limits on his office are. Worse, he doesn’t even care to know! And no one, not Republican or Democrat is about to tell him. Most likely because they are just as ignorant as he is of these things.

Demcocracy! Democracy! Who’s got your Democracy??

Screw your “democracy”…democracy is defined as mob rule. The mob in D.C. is ruling everyday against the people it was elected to represent. Personally, I believe the entire House and Senate needs to be impeached and removed from office. They do not listen to us, represent us or defend our Constitution. Why are we paying these people?? Why do we tolerate them and their chronic and ongoing corruption? What is wrong with us as a population that we accept these things and do not demand more, and better representation?

We are at a crossroads America. When the two least qualified individuals are all we had to choose from for president of these United States, we should have known the fix was in. We can do better than this.

Dear Congresscritter,

The impeachment farce in Congress is the same modus operandi that has been used by Wall Street to create civil dissension and establish puppet governments with tyrannical control worldwide for decades. Can we prevent such an occurrence in the United States ?

Wall Street created the CIA in 1946 using their crony Allen Dulles to hide their nefarious war-mongering, such as getting the US involved in WW I and WW II, under a guise of “national security.” Then the CIA used that cover to thwart President Eisenhower’s attempt for Peace talks with Khrushchev by sabotaging their own U-2 flight. Then they sabotaged their own invasion of Cuba in a failed attempt to commit the U.S to all-out war with Cuba [Dulles countermanded JFK’s order]. Then they labeled JFK a traitor when they discovered his secret back-channel peace talks with Moscow (along with JFK’s attack on the Federal Reserve). Mark Lane, John Groden, and Mark North claim the CIA killed JFK. Then they successfully impeached (with bogus CIA corrupted evidence and MSM hype) RMN after he closed the CIA school to teach Tibetans to invade China, and then RMN destroyed the CIA’s straw enemy by opening trade with China in addition to his Midnight Massacre of 1700 CIA agents. Then they schemed to prevent the reelection of JEC [OCTOBER SURPRISE] after he torpedoed a nuclear powered aircraft carrier and his Halloween Massacre of 700 CIA agents. “Conspiracy theorists” conclude 1000 architects and engineers, and Rebekah Roth, present a scenario that appears impossible without the CIA and US military involvement on 9/11. Then the CIA lied to create war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, among many other coups by Wall Street, behind cutouts, as indicated by John Perkins.

Wall Street bankers have initiated and utilized the military to engage in perpetual warfare by lies and deception for their economic profit since 1915. This continuity of influence and control over government policy is now evidenced in the Ukraine and is leading the impeachment fraud against the President after his attempts to avoid nuclear hostility with a super Power. Wall Street cannot tolerate peace.

What action can be taken to discontinue the madness of these psychopathic homicidal megalomaniacs? Well, may I respectfully suggest WHENSE THE DEEP STATE may be one consideration. Ref https://ncc-1776.org/tle2019/tle1050-20191208-10.html

Priming The Public for the 2020 Election

In my Opinion…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Its scary folks! Why I tell you, if things get any scarier I don’t know what I will do. Over the last few days my email has been rife with dire warnings of impending doom and chaos, the likes of which we have never seen before. And the 2020 elections are still more than a year away. Pay attention here, because these are all serious, serious threats to our so-called “democracy, our religious piety, and of course our very way of life”. Thats just for starters. Anyway, here’s what I have been warned about over the last several days.

 

  1. According to Hillary Clinton, Tulsi Gabbard is being groomed by the Russians. I suppose Clinton would know, after all they groomed her to the tune of about 3 million in her Uranium 1 deal. And god only knows how much went into her foundation that no one even knows about.
  2. Trump has claimed that if they do impeach him, he will become even more powerful than he is now. He went on to say that he will become so powerful they won’t believe it. We don’t know who the “they” is he is referring to…but nonetheless ..they won’t believe it. This statement was reportedly followed with a major temper tantrum that included holding his breath for more than two minutes while stomping his feet furiously.
  3. Both major party’s have solicited funds from me. As I understand it, they can only beat their adversaries (which I am to view as my enemy) if I give them money. They cannot possibly win unless I personally send them as much as I can.
  4. After falling badly behind schedule in driving the entire country into unrepayable debt, the Senate is ready to begin passing their spending bills. Of course, they have no intentions of spending their own money. No. They are making plans on how to spend YOUR money, and your children’s and grandchildren’s.
  5. My email is loaded with dire warnings that the “commies” are coming….or is it the socialists? I can’t keep them straight. One such email had blazing headlines about how the Communist Party was supporting the Democrats. OMG!! Who even knew we had a communist party?? I am so scared now I think I peed a little!
  6. OH! And lest I forget! The end is near! All the signs are there! And you know that if you don’t give your church of choice as much of your money as you can they cannot possibly fight back the devil who is after you personally. But they can’t beat him unless you give til it hurts.
  7. Oh no! I just got an email reminding me that communism/socialism has failed in every country that has tried to implement it. That’s true. But have you ever noticed they never mention Italy and the hanging of Mussolini for implementing fascism ..,.. the corporate privatizing of everything, including the government, which devastated the Italian economy and its people? Fascism doesn’t work either, except for those at the top. Everyone else pays the bills. Sound familiar?
  8. But just when things seemed to be on a downward spiral I got an email that informed me that beautiful Ukraine women were wanting to meet me!! And another promising to give me the secret to making women scream with pleasure all night long! Oh wait a minute….I have to send them money before I meet any of these women or learn these secrets!

Damn…..I already spent all my money fighting the Democrats, the Republicans, the socialists, the communists, the fascists and the devil!

President Pence (God Save us from this)

1 Comment

Editors note:  Trump was never supposed to actually be president.  Pence, just as Cheney was in the Bush the Dolt administration, is an un-electable politician added to the ticket as the only means to put him into position for the presidency. .  Virulent, religiously rabid, viciously anti- anything the neocons don’t support….the US will be plunged into more wars of aggression on behalf of Israel. Pence’s allegiance and loyalty is to Israel, not to the Us which he has made abundantly clear. Always lurking in the back ground of photos of Trump, he has the appearance of a large serpent ready to strike.  I can only imagine the horrors this man would inflict on the nation.  It would be like electing Hillary….only with a better haircut.

 

 

President Pence

If you think the infestation of neocons within the Trump administration is worrisome, just wait until the president is impeached and Mike Pence takes the throne.

Pence is a born-again Christian Zionist. While Trump may indeed be muddleheaded, Pence is not. If the Stable and Wise Genius is deposed, Pence will open the floodgates and in will rush the neocons. It will be completely retro—harking back to the days of Bush the Lesser and his cabal of Israel-first neocons.

Democrats don’t like Pence—he’s a “conservative” Republican—but as far as they’re concerned, a short-term (until the election) neocon as president is preferable to leaving Trump in the White House.

Here’s what they’re missing—as soon as Trump gets on the helicopter and does a Nixonian farewell wave to his staff, the neocons will be taking up positions in the Pence administration and will work to wrap up the Zionist agenda in the Middle East, viz; unfinished business in Syria, Lebanon, and especially Iran.

Of course, establishment Democrats are not concerned about this prospect—they also believe in Israel’s wars fought at the expense of American blood and treasure. Democrats are simply more sneaky on foreign affairs and habitually disguise their warmongering psychopathy with insincere platitudes about democracy and humanitarianism.

Mike Pence will undoubtedly confront Iran militarily in the Persian Gulf. If Israel attacks Gaza or moves troops into Lebanon again, Pence will provide support and US troops. He told soldiers after Trump was elected they can expect to eventually be fed into a war, either in the Middle East, North Korea, and possibly the Western Hemisphere (that is, Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua).

If Pence moves to suck the US into a war Trump fears—for the sake of his legacy, not to spare the lives of Syrians and Iranians—the ensuing catastrophe will end up in the lap of whatever Democrat is elected next year, be that Elizabeth Warren or the predicted party crasher, Hillary Clinton.

Colorado’s Supreme Court has used its power to help itself – again.

1 Comment

The Judicial Integrity Project

Colorado’s Supreme Court has used its power to help itself – again. This time, it’s to wipe out an embarrassing 97% dismissal rate of complaints against judges.

By rewriting the rules for Colorado’s Commission on Judicial Discipline, the Supreme Court stops the incredulous 97% dismissal rate from continuing. The rate hit 97% in 1993 and has been 97% ever since – 24 years. But the Supreme Court has ensured the rate won’t continue.

How? By redefining “complaint.”

Under the new rules, a complaint will no longer be a complaint when a person files a complaint with the commission. A complaint will only be a “complaint” when the commission finds there are grounds to proceed. Before that point, what has been a complaint will now be called a “request for investigation.”

Requests for investigation won’t be dismissed. Those files will merely be closed if the commission finds there aren’t grounds to proceed. The 97% dismissal rate disappears into those closed files. Clever, huh?

So instead of spending valuable time hearing more cases that should be heard at the Supreme Court, or encouraging vigorous enforcement of the Code of Judicial Conduct, our justices spent time figuring out a crafty plan to cover their tracks.

Does this rule change make you feel confident in the Supreme Court justices? Does it make you think they’re being unfair? Does it seem like they’re using their power to help themselves?

Obama’s Reckless Refugee Program Mirrors his Ebola Policy

Leave a comment

new-logo25

Contributor & Author: Richard Amerling, MD (New York City) Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine and Academic Nephrologist at the Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital in New York City. Dr. Amerling is also President of The Association Of American Physicians And Surgeons: (see bio at the bottom of this release)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Preview:  Like the response to Ebola, this is another instance where Mr. Obama is acting in flagrant disregard for the safety of Americans and the homeland. And let us not forget that his precipitous withdrawal from Iraq, betraying the sacrifice of thousands of our best and bravest, led directly to the rise of ISIS. Let us also not forget his utter disregard for border security and for federal immigration law.

We cannot wait for an election still a year away, the outcome of which is obviously uncertain. There is an overwhelming case for immediate impeachment of the enemy in the Oval Office. The safety and survival of the Republic is in jeopardy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our feckless president’s reckless push to bring “refugees” from Syria, who are 97% Muslim and mostly men of fighting age, into the United States is analogous to his open border policy regarding potential Ebola carriers.

A little over a year ago, an Ebola-infected African immigrant was admitted to a hospital in Dallas with full blown Ebola. His stay at that hospital transformed it to the front line in a crucial battle. Two nurses who treated this man became infected. Miraculously, both survived and the disease didn’t spread further (though one of the nurses traveled in a jet with a fever, after being cleared by the CDC!).

Shortly thereafter, a young doctor, just back from treating Ebola patients in Africa, traveled around New York City with early symptoms of Ebola before being transported and isolated at Bellevue Hospital. Again, miraculously, no one else was infected by this individual.

I wrote in an op-Ed in November of last year, “There is simply no dispute that Ebola needs to be contained in West Africa. This clearly means limiting travel from this region to the United States, and requiring adequate quarantines when U.S. citizens return. Nigeria has done this and has successfully contained their outbreak. Australia became the first of the so-called developed nations to impose a travel ban…. Instead of travel restrictions, foreign health workers afflicted by Ebola may be airlifted into the U.S. for treatment. This is the opposite of containment.”

The Obama policy placed Americans at risk. Even one death from Ebola brought in from Africa would be one too many. The infected nurses were fortunate to survive, and went through an ordeal. A handful of infected people arriving in a city such as New York would place an enormous burden on the health system, and would have the potential to create a serious outbreak with many infections and deaths. This nightmare scenario did not materialize because Brussels Airlines, which has nearly complete control over flights from Ebola endemic regions, instituted an effective screening program. More

THE AMAZING PART OF THIS TRAVESTY IS AMERICANS CONTINUE ALLOWING THEMSELVES TO BE RULED BY AN ILLEGAL ALIEN.  Watch it before it’s pulled!

Leave a comment

 

cards_bigThere is much to celebrate, as there is only 33 days until George W. Bush leaves the White House.  In addition, Congressman Nadler, Chairman of the Subcommittee on the Constitution, recently introduced a resolution expressing staunch opposition to any potential preemptive pardons of members of his Administration and the need for an Independent commission or select committee to “investigate, and, where appropriate, prosecute illegal acts by senior officials of the administration of President George W. Bush.”

I fully support this resolution and I have signed on as a co-sponsor.

The issue of preemptive and/or blanket pardons has been a subject of much debate and frustration. There is great concern that Bush will abuse his pardon power and further cover up wrongdoing by his Administration. 

However, as citizens, we have a responsibility to reject any abuse of the presidential pardon power to shield or manipulate investigations.

Regardless of the legality of potential pardons, there needs to be a full accounting of this Administration’s abuses.  No doubt many of the players in the Administration will seek future positions or public office.  The public deserves a full accounting of what they have done, and the law, in my opinion, requires it.

Many felt that President-elect Obama’s victory might free members of Congress to move forward with Impeachment Hearings.  However, the weeks since the election have been largely consumed with trying to formulate a balanced and thoughtful response to the economic crisis, which, no doubt, is affecting many of you.

The struggles of the American auto industry, and the ongoing banking and credit crisis, skyrocketing unemployment, and our exploding budget deficit have taken center stage. 

Some of our most critical issues – universal healthcare, Medicare and social security funding, alternative energy investment, and education improvements are all threatened by this crisis.  Although I am committed as ever to holding this Administration accountable, we are facing a historic crisis in this nation that Congress and President-elect Obama must work together to solve.

Obama’s victory gives us a window to accomplish vital tasks that will have very direct impact on you and your family. 

I thoroughly believe that President-elect Obama will return us to a government that respects the rights of its citizens and the rule of law.  I look forward to working closely with his Administration to not only repair the damage, but bring forth a renewed sense that government is, in fact, responsible and answerable to the people.

With great respect and admiration,

Troops Deployed On U.S. Streets…….. By Naomi Wolf

***   “Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized

by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.”

EXPLANATION, NORTHCOM RECEIVED A “BATTLE-TESTED FIGHTING UNIT FROM THE WAR ON IRAQ”

 

Troops Deployed On U.S. Streets        By Naomi Wolf

 

http://www.countercurrents.org/wolf081008.htm

 

Excerpted from the article:

 

“Nothing. Their only recourse is to cut off funding. The Congress would be at the mercy of military leaders to go to them and ask them not to obey illegal orders.”

“I interviewed Vietnam veteran, retired U.S. Air Force Colonel and patriot David Antoon for clarification: “If the President directed the First Brigade to arrest Congress, what could stop him?”

“But these orders are now legal?'”

“Correct.”

“If the President directs the First Brigade to arrest a bunch of voters, what would stop him?”

“Nothing. It would end up in courts but the action would have been taken.”

“If the President directs the First Brigade to kill civilians, what would stop him?”

“Nothing.”

“What would prevent him from sending the First Brigade to arrest the editor of the Washington Post?”

“Nothing. He could do what he did in Iraq — send a tank down a street in Washington and fire a shell into the Washington Post as they did into Al Jazeera, and claim they were firing at something else.”

“What happens to members of the First Brigade who refuse to take up arms against U.S. citizens?”

“They’d probably be treated as deserters as in Iraq: arrested, detained and facing five years in prison. In Iraq a study by Ann Wright shows that deserters — reservists who refused to go back to Iraq — got longer sentences than war criminals.”

“Does Congress have any military of their own?”

“No. Congress has no direct control of any military units. The Governors have the National Guard but they report to the President in an emergency that he declares.”

“Who can arrest the President?”

“The Attorney General can arrest the President after he leaves or after impeachment.”

[Note: Prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi has asserted it is possible for District Attorneys around the country to charge President Bush with murder if they represent districts where one or more military members who have been killed in Iraq formerly resided.]

“Given the danger do you advocate impeachment?”

“Yes. President Bush struck down Posse Comitatus — which has prevented, with a penalty of two years in prison, U.S. leaders since after the Civil War from sending military forces into our streets — with a ‘signing statement.’ He should be impeached immediately in a bipartisan process to prevent the use of military forces and mercenary forces against U.S. citizens”

Why should taxpayers be forced to bailout private businesses that are corrupt and unethical?  Why should CEO’S who ran these companies into the ground be allowed severance packages or be asked to stay on and continue running the disaster?  Why is NO ONE being charged with corruption in these failures?

All you free trade capitalists out there should be demanding that these banks and insurance companies be allowed to fold, just like any small business would.  Failure is the other side of the coin in deregualtion and no oversight.   

Since it is our money they are risking, the least they can do is listen to our views on this.

Neo-cons Not Aware of Any Impeachable Offenses.

Leave a comment

 

Today I watched with anticipation the Judiciary Committee hearings on whether or not there was sufficient evidence, or any evidence at all, that the Bush Administration was corrupt, had abused its power and had mislead the American people regarding the war with Iraq, illegal spying and wiretapping of American citizens and if it had corrupted the Department of Justice.  Several other issues were touched upon but of course everyone was limited to five minutes to state their case which had the immediate and desired affect of limiting any attempts to actually expose the full scope of criminal activity by this corrupt and shameful administration. 

 

Of particular interest to me were the statements by ranking committee member Rep. Lamar Smith of the 21st District of Texas.

 

According to Representative Smith, not only did he not believe that the Bush Administration and its cohorts in crime had committed any crimes worthy of investigation, he felt the hearings themselves were shameful and a waste of time.  Apparently Mr. Smith has either been in a coma for the last seven years, or is blissfully ignorant not only of what has transpired during this time but the affect these years have had not only on our civil liberties but also what it has cost us as a nation in blood and tears. 

 

Mr. Smith seemed not at all impressed with the facts that more than a million Iraqi’s have been slaughtered in this war for oil and greed, along with 4,127 American military men and women and that these deaths and this carnage was brought about by the lies of the worst president and administration we have ever had to endure as a nation.  Mr. Smith indicated that the president had committed no impeachable offenses.  That this supposed representative of a Texas district could make such statements with a straight face was a shock to the senses of anyone who had paid any attention at all to the illegal activities and actions of this administration since 2001.

 

Two panels were seated during this inquiry, and on the second was a gentleman named Jeremy Rabkin.  Mr. Rabkin is a professor of law at George Mason University although how this man managed to obtain such employment must be a mystery.  Professor Rabkin was brought in as a witness apparently to bolster the neo-con position that it’s only a crime if a non global elitist does it.  What a pitiful example of the neo-con mindset this man is. 

 

In what I can only describe as one of the most overly animated, gesticulating, face contorting diatribes I have ever witnessed, Professor Rabkin loudly proclaimed that the mood of the people in the room was “demented”.  (I found it to be quite passive and docile until he himself began raging.) It would seem, according to the professor, that anyone in the room or out of the room who believed that impeachable offenses had been committed were deranged.

 

While this neo-con buffoon did everything but physically jump on the desk and twist his body into the shape of a pretzel he presented not one shred of legal expertise to support his contention that there was no offense.  Far from coming off as a legal expert on Constitutional law, or any law at all for that matter, the professor seemed more to be auditioning for the Gong Show.  Mr. Rabkin’s appearance must have been more for distraction than for substance.  It was distracting and also quite uncomfortable to watch.

 

So, has the president committed any impeachable offenses?  Let me count the ways!  Illegal spying and wiretapping, data mining on US citizens,  manipulating intelligence to attack Iraq,  launching a pre-emptive war of aggression,  kidnapping and disappearing of foreign nationals,  secret prisons, torture,  signing statements directing departments and agencies not to abide by the law,  claiming powers not delegated to the  executive,  issuing executive orders contrary to constitutional law,  declaring himself above the common law,  illegal imprisonment, holding prisoners without charges, the intentional genocide of the Iraqi people for the benefit and gain of multinational oil cartels, corruption of the Department of Justice,  attempting to launch yet another war of aggression by provoking Iran,  entering into the Security & Prosperity Partnership intended to dissolve our sovereign nation,  failing to secure our southern border from illegal invasion,  and mounting an unmitigated War OF Terror against the American people.  This is the short list.

 

So what do you think, Mr. Smith?  Mr. Rabkin?  Can you look at this short list of offenses and still claim that nothing here is indicative of impeachable offenses? 

 

These two gentlemen were surely not the only ones on the committee or panels who feigned indignation at the mere thought that anyone might want to hold this administration accountable, but they are the two who stood out, especially Mr. Rabkin whose head I thought was surely going to explode at one point if it didn’t break away from his body totally and spin across the room.   

 

This may come as a shock to these gentlemen, but the American public has come to its own conclusions about this administration and its activities, and it was no thanks to either of you or people like you. It is after viewing such things as this hearing today, that I find myself wondering how Mr. Smith and Mr. Rabkin have continued to hold any position at all as both seem to be either clueless or so dedicated to the dead elephant in the room, the herd passed by them unnoticed

 

And the elephant is dead for all intents and purposes.  Yet, as today showed us, there are still those who believe that the neo-con tactics of distortion, manipulation, stonewalling, ranting and over-acting are still clung to by a few who refuse to admit the American people have tired of these antics, are no longer amused by them, and no longer sucked in by them.   

 

Today also exposed one other thing; there is still a number of people willing to forfeit our country, our Constitution, our lives, rather than defend and protect the Constitution of the United States and our laws, as long as there is some benefit for them in doing so, whether hidden or overt.  For these individuals, party affiliation, political pandering and inclusion in what can only be described as an anti-American movement is far more important than preserving our nation and protecting not only our government, but its people as well, from a cabal dedicated to seeing it destroyed. 

 

Whether congress moves to impeach this criminal administration or not, the majority of people in the United States have.  We didn’t have to call in cartoon professors, or put dummy politicians on a committee…..we figured it out for ourselves.  And, if ordinary people can look at the actions of this administration, and admit that they were duped into a war on behalf of oil cartels; if they can find evidence on their own that a massive deception and fraud was perpetrated on the American people that has cost so many lives; if they can comprehend and realize that everything we hold dear is being stripped away from us……why can’t congress? 

 

It seems a strange thing to me that ordinary citizens are willing to speak up and speak out about the travesties of this administration, that they can see the need to bring to accountability those who have so terribly abused their offices for reasons other than the over used “national security” excuse and yet our elected representatives are either unwilling or intentionally obstructing any efforts to act in defense of our country.

 

The neo-con, anti-American faction of the Republican Party has yet to realize that the dead elephant in the room, is them.  The only thing missing in today’s circus sideshow put on by the neo-cons was the lack of some raging Evangelical, born-again, God is putting a word of knowledge in my heart right now, rock star preacher. This was most likely just an oversight. After all, the clowns were there.

Hoyer Tries to Sneak in Immunity for Tele-coms and Illegal Wiretaps

Leave a comment

Wiretapping: Impeachment Not Immunity

House “Majority” Leader Steny Hoyer doesn’t understand the meaning of NO.

On March 14, we won a huge victory when the House voted 213-197 for a bill to strengthen FISA without providing immunity for Bush and the telcos who illegally spied on millions of Americans without a warrant. Thanks to your lobbying efforts – including over 58,000 petitions! – just six Bush Democrats voted for immunity.

Even Steny Hoyer voted against immunity. But Hoyer kept conspiring with Bush to sneak immunity through Congress when no one was watching. And on Friday, Hoyer quietly announced a new bill to provide retroactive immunity for past warrantless wiretapping and allow new wiretapping for six more years.

So it’s time for us to tell Congress once again that we will not tolerate warrantless wiretapping by George Bush or any other President, and we demand full accountability for George Bush through impeachment. Our last wiretapping petition sent over 58,000 emails to Congress – let’s see if we can double that number to over 100,000.

Wiretapping: Impeachment Not Immunity – Sign the Petition
http://www.democrats.com/peoplesemailnetwork/141

whether you are a Democrat or not…..sign this petition to stop Steny Hoyer, A Bush Demcrat, from giving retro-active immunity to Bush and the Telecoms for illegal wiretapping.  Demand impeachment!

MSM Fails Again! No Reporting of Impeachment Resolution

Leave a comment

In what were nothing but minor blips on the national media radar, few comments were made nor any reporting done of Dennis Kucinich’s HRes 1258….35 Articles of Impeachment.  Of course they did report the latest celebrity mishaps, DUI’s, and a bunch of other uninformative and useless information, all neatly packaged and prepared for the new American Sensate Society.  In other words, a call for impeachment of the most corrupt administration and president in our history went by virtually without notice or fanfare. 

Last week, a US Congressman submitted articles of impeachment for the most obvious of Bush’s crimes.

Was it reported? Did you see the footage on TV?

Yesterday’s vote and today’s steps forward

Yesterday, the House voted 251-166 to send the 35 Articles of Impeachment introduced on Monday to the House Judiciary Committee.

ImpeachBush.org is initiating a full-scale grassroots campaign to pressure the House Judiciary Committee to act on HRes 1258, the Articles of Impeachment for George W. Bush. It is now the Judiciary Committee’s obligation to hold impeachment hearings.

We’ve produced a new flyer, “Impeachment: How you can help make it a reality,” which you can download by clicking here. It is perfect for circulating to your friends, family members, classmates, co-workers, community members, and all other potential newcomers to the movement. If everyone on this list were to pass out the flyer to just ten people — and that wouldn’t take long at all — we could magnify our efforts dramatically.

By bringing the millions more people who already support impeachment into the movement, through phone calls, emails, door-to-door outreach, rallies, pickets and advertising, Congress will be forced to respond to the will of the people.

We’d especially like to thank everyone who has donated to the impeachment movement in the last few days. It’s your help that allows us to get these grassroots initiatives off the ground and running in no time. If you have not donated this week, please consider taking a moment to do so right now and click this link. If you have already given, we thank you for any additional contribution you can make.

American Freedom Campaign….Arrest Karl Rove

Leave a comment

Finally. 

More than seven years too late, it appears as if a growing number of congresspersons are realizing that they are part of a co-equal branch of government.  After allowing their institution to be disrespected and at times ignored by the executive branch, top officials in Congress are finally expressing a willingness to use their full power under the Constitution to rein in an out-of-control administration.

The current target:  Karl Rove.

Rove has been asked by the House Judiciary Committee to testify about his involvement in the Justice Department’s prosecution and imprisonment of former Alabama Governor Don Siegleman.  As Rove has so far refused to testify voluntarily, members of Congress have started sending signals that they are prepared to go to the mattresses over this.

Yesterday, Rep. Robert Wexler sent out a strongly worded E-mail – pasted in full below – advocating the use of “inherent contempt” against Rove, which would allow the House Sergeant-of-Arms to forcibly bring Rove to the House to testify.

Also yesterday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers alluded to the use of inherent contempt.  “We’ll do what any self-respecting committee would do,” Conyers said. “We’d hold him in contempt. Either that or go and have him arrested.”

We need you to let your representative know that you support this forceful action.  If you agree that Congress should arrest Karl Rove, if necessary, and force him to testify before the House, please click on this link and send an E-mail to your representative immediately:

Once you have taken action, please forward this E-mail as widely as possible or use the tell-a-friend page on the American Freedom Campaign site to spread the word.

An E-mail from Rep. Robert Wexler, May 15, 2008:

Last night, I appeared on MSNBC’s Verdict with Dan Abrams to discuss Karl Rove’s outrageous refusal to appear before Congress regarding serious allegations that he used the US Justice Department to take down a prominent Democratic politician. It is alleged that Mr. Rove personally instigated the prosecution of former Alabama Governor Don Siegleman.  The case has been criticized by legal experts, and 52 former state attorney generals – both Republicans and Democrats – have criticized the case and called for an investigation.

If Rove refuses to testify voluntarily and ignores the subpoenas that will certainly be issued, he should be held in Inherent Contempt of the House of Representatives.

No American is above the law.  None of us should be able to ignore Congress without consequence.   If Mr. Rove ignores a subpoena from the Judiciary Committee, then the House of Representatives should pass an Inherent Contempt citation and exercise our right to send the House Sergeant-of-Arms to gather Mr. Rove and bring him before Congress to testify.

I do not advocate this option lightly, but the reality is that Congress has few options left against an Administration that totally refuses to submit to any type of reasonable Congressional oversight.  Congress has both the right and obligation to investigate these matters.  Never before has an Executive so upset the checks and balances inherent in our Constitution.  If we back off or delay, we effectively forfeit the power of Congress to investigate the Executive branch

Rove is not the first White House official to ignore Congress.  We have seen a pattern of refusals based on laughable claims of executive privilege. First, White House Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten and former White House Counsel Harriet Miers ignored subpoenas on the investigation into the firing of US Attorney Generals for partisan political motives.

Their refusal to testify was unprecedented:  never before have executive officials totally refused to even show up before Congress.  Bolten and Miers are the highest officials ever held in contempt of Congress.  Unfortunately, Attorney General Mukasey – in a dereliction of duty – has refused to enforce the contempt decree and now Congress is suing them in District Court to demand compliance.  Then, the Vice President’s Chief of Staff, David Addington, refused to testify on the investigation into the Bush Administration’s ordering of torture.  Now, Rove continues this executive arrogance by also refusing to testify.

Enough is enough.  We have a Constitutional obligation to provide accountability to a White House that is trying to usurp the constitutional powers of Congress.

These are the very reasons why I have been pushing for impeachment hearings for Vice President Cheney.  The Bush Administration has been running roughshod over the Constitution for eight long years.  We should not allow the promise of a positive election be used as an excuse to ignore our duty to investigate crimes that weaken the very fabric of our Democracy.

I thank you again for your commitment to the causes that we hold so dear.

With warm regards,
Congressman Robert Wexler

The 9/11 Coup and the Overthrow of the US Government

3 Comments

I come from what was most likely the last generation of high school students taught anything at all about American history or government.  Even then, the revising of historical events was rampant and one had to go outside of the classroom and search for historical records and archived documents to get a real picture of past world events.  It was probably during this period and as a result of it that the decision was made privately to un-educate the masses.  If there is one thing that our government cannot tolerate, it is an educated public.  Education is power and power is highly coveted by those in government.

To come of age in the 60’s was to have everything you had been told, everything you thought you knew about our country, turned on its ear.  For many it was a time of free love and drug experimentation, the drugs provided for the most part via the CIA as was depicted in the book, “The Big White Lie” based on the recollections of a former agent.  The CIA is still quite possibly the largest supplier of cocaine and other drugs in the US.  There is a method to their madness.

Although the media and the government took great care to highlight the hippie lifestyle, they took far more care in portraying those who advocated for social change as anti-American communists who wanted nothing more than the overthrow of our government and a hedonistic lifestyle.  Behind the scenes these same self righteous hypocrites were doing many of the same things and some of them were formulating what would become in later years the neo-conservative movement, although this wouldn’t rear its ugly and repugnant head until the early 80’s.

In the early 90’s, led by Dick Cheney for the most part, but supported by Donald Rumsfeld and other one world government advocates (as long as they were the resulting government) the Project for the New American Century was launched (PNAC).  Had this type of document with its plans for government to attack its own people to institute radical political and structural changes in our country, to eradicate our founding documents and forfeit our sovereignty been floated by any other group, arrests would have been made and several people would either be in prison for life or hanging from a public gallows.  But the “crazies in the basement” as Bush (1) called the neocons, were loose.  They had not only escaped but now were firmly in control of the institution.

The year 2000 was so pivotal in what was to come.  The election fraud that saw the Supreme Court interfer in a national election when it had no right to do so was only the icing on the cake.  The entire 2000 election scam was the first real test of the apathy of American citizens and voters.  And, taking their cue from this sense of helplessness or laziness on the part of the majority of the American public, GW Bush was selected as president with a duly compliant media palying its part.  Having co-opted the so called “religious right”, born again Christians were jumping up and down with joy claiming “God” had put Bush in the White House.  Only it wasn’t God…..it was the neocons with the help of the Supreme Court, Diebold, Sequoia and corrupt state secretaries that promised Bush the White House before the phony election took place.

As predicted and prayed for in PNAC, there was a need for a new “Pearl Harbor” type incident to coerce the American public into accepting the intended changes in the dynamics of our government and to their civil liberties.  For some reason, neocons cannot abide the idea of common everyday people having any rights, which would by their very nature imply that they had personal power.  Reading the material that has ensued from this faction by the likes of William Kristol, Alan Keyes, Grover Norquist and other demented and controlling personalities, it becomes quite apparent that unless you are monied, corporately connected or politcally cooperative, you have no real value.  Because you have no real value as a human being, you should have no power.  Elitism perfected.

The desired New Pearl Harbor came on 9/11.  For some reason on that day, every government agency from intelligence to the military and everything in between…….failed.  An estimated 3000 people parrished in what had to be the greatest coup ever succesfully attempted by any faction of government.  Yes.  I said that.  9/11 was nothing more than a coup to overthrow our government.  And it worked.  It was the perfect storm for the planned destruction of our nation. 

To help facilitate this overthrow it was necessary to find a puppet leader, one with a massive ego who could be easily manipulated and not too smart.  How else could you explain the presidency of someone like GW Bush who is obviously mentally compromised and oblivious to reality?  A man who obviously is not and never was qualified to hold that office but was and is for some reason, still there.

9/11 should have been a wake up call although not for the reasons we are spoon fed by the gigantic propaganda machine of our new corporate government.  We should have stood up collectively and demanded an investigation of why our government so conveniently failed us that day.  We should have fought back relentlessly against the trashing of our founding documents and our loss of civil liberties.  And we should be collectively and actively pushing for impeachment and trial of the entire administration that enabled this tragedy.  The terrorists we need to fear are centered in the Oval Office.  No terrorist could have accomplished what this anti-American administration has done to us.  Destruction is coming from within.

Thinking of all of this, I can’t help but remember the 60’s.  College campuses were the hubs of activity and activism.  We may not have agreed with what they advocated or how they went about it, but those kids had passion and energy.  They also had courage of conviction.  Today we have iPod’s and text messaging and kids that are so dumbed down they have no idea just how ignorant they are.  We have schools that are training centers for the new world order, and students who can barely read and write.  All is going according to plan.

Personally, I would give anything to see the passion and the level of activism of the 60’s.  Drugs and sex aside, never was the American public so heavily invested in the policies of government.  Never was there a time when corruption and lies of government were so thoroughly exposed.  Of course for many all they will remember about that time was that drugs were being used, and sex was no longer practiced in secret.  For those who think or believe that the 60’s were nothing more than a drug and sex revolution I can only say that you watched too much TV and believed only what was convenient to believe.  It was far more than that.  It marked the last time that our young people stood up for their country and demanded that government of the people, for the people and by the people be adhered to and honored. 

I can fully understand how the neocons got away with their new Pearl Harbor event……kids today don’t even know what Pearl Harbor signifies and can’t make the connection.

Speaker Pelosi Should Be Impeached

Leave a comment

We should have worked to have her removed from her office when she declared “impeachment is off the table” immediately after assuming the position of Speaker of the House.  This statement was made with the full knowledge that the newly acquired position she occupied was a direct result of the will of the voters to replace the corruption of not only the Republican majority, but also the administration and to impeach Bush and Cheney.  Princess Pelosi made her loyalties very clear, and they are not to the American people.

To add insult to injury, even after millions of American’s repeatedly stood up and demanded that there be no amnesty and that our laws be enforced, effectively preventing the passage of such odorous pieces of legislation such as the Dream Act ….which was a bitch slap to legal citizens….. not once, not twice, but three times at least, the Princess is continuing to work behind the scenes to produce yet another amnesty bill which she will try to ram through congress, due to come out early this summer.  Maybe she’s hard of hearing?  Maybe she can’t comprehend?  Maybe she really does think that what the American people want is not an issue she has to be bothered with. 

Now, Her Royal Hiney is working on a 178 billion dollar package to continue to fund the war in Iraq.  Where, one might ask, does the Princess think she is going to find another $178 billion?  We’ve already borrowed so much from China that they actually own us, and Japan is running a close second.  Revenues are way down from taxes as so many have lost their jobs, their homes, and their quality of life. 

The federal government contiinues to raid the Social Security surplus to pay its operating expenses and to cover the loss of revenues from the tax cuts to the wealthiest people, and the cost of illegal immigrants to the federal government jumped up to 240 billion for 2007.  These two issues alone have bankrupted our country, and this does not include the state by state costs, deficits and resulting debts accrued.  Now add the cost of this illegal war to all of these things.  We are in effect…….not only bankrupt but totally insolvent as a nation.  We can’t even pay the service debt on all the money we have borrowed. But the Princess wants to create another 178 billion dollar debt (this doesn’t include interest, fees, penalties, or other hidden costs) to continue to fund an unwinnable war that the American people have made very clear they want stopped.

I have a plan:

Until congress, the administration and its cohorts in crime work for the American people rather than against them, I believe all of their assets both liquid and invested, including homes, businesses, savings, assets from any source whatsoever, including all the personal funds that they are stashing away in foreign currencies and investments, should be seized and used to pay back these monstrous debts that they have created and claimed that we, the American citizen are responsible for.  Maybe if they have to pay the bill for the money they have spent against our wishes, they might stop squandering it. 

I think we should start with Princess Pelosi.  First, she needs to be dethroned.  Then, all of her ill gotten gains seized and applied to the debt she has helped to create.  Once she is homeless, without any resources, with no political power, she may have an epiphany. 

Ultimately, Pelosi is only one piece of the problem.  Maybe its time we citizens think over the idea that congress is no longer representative of the people.  Maybe its time we end congress.  Having ceded so much of its power and authority to the executive branch, congress has ceased to be a needed branch of government.  God knows congress doesn’t work for the people, opting instead to protect the corporatization of our government and country and actively working to protect those interests rather than those of the people who elected them.  Think of the money that could be saved by ridding our selves of this monumental siphon on the public treasury. 

Think of it as good business practices.  No other corporation would tolerate the inactivity, the bad business decisions, the poor financial practices, or the ignoring of those invested in the corporation.  Our government is in effect, a corporation and if this is how they want to operate, then as investers in that corporation we have a right to call a meeting and demand an accounting,  and a voice in structure and board members. 

Maybe if we start by removing Pelosi from the board of directors which is commonly called “congress”, other board members will get the message.  Maybe not.  But it would sure be a fine start in the right direction.
