How The Bush Stole Your Privacy

Makes the Grinch look like Bugs Bunny, don't he?

"He knows what you've been saying,
He knows what calls you make.
He knows if you've been bad or good,
Never mind the laws he breaks."

President Debbie Downer: Goerge says Christmas is a time to mourn

Military families are already mourning their lost and absent loved ones. The rest of us are mourning the loss of our country to a fascist dictator.

Goerge calls NINE GIs overseas!

Did the NSA eavesdrop on these overseas calls?

Nine phone calls. Nine whole phone calls. He's in the gorgeous retreat at Camp David, and he makes nine phone calls.

Guess who told the biggest political lies this year?

Just read it. Some things don't need any comment.

NORAD tracks UFO coming from North Pole

NSA eavesdropping network picks up apparent sleigh bells.

Department of Homeland Security on alert, Terr Threat Level=Red Velvet.

Cheney heads to undisclosed location. Goerge reportedly considers calling Congress back for emergency session to pass another tax cut. Falwell says gays will shoot UFO down. FAUXNEWZ prepares to blame Clinton for delivery of gifts to wrong houses.

"Justice" Dept reveals Social Security numbers; Merry Christmas, identity thieves

Is there anybody in this junta who doesn't deserve tar and feathers?

"A document on the Justice Department Executive Office for Immigration Review's site listed the name and Social Security number of a woman involved in a 2003 immigration review case. Other searches of the site yielded more Social Security numbers and identifying information."

Mother of Slain Army Private Barry Winchell Calls on Pentagon to Immediately Implement Anti-Harassment Plan; Patricia Kutteles Calls on Fort Huachuca Officials to Hold Attacker Accountable

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Dec. 23 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Patricia Kutteles, mother of slain Army Private First Class Barry Winchell, issued a statement today in response to reports that Private Kyle Lawson, 19, was attacked by a fellow service member at Fort Huachuca, Arizona, after fellow soldiers learned Lawson is gay. In 1999, Kutteles' son was brutally murdered at Fort Campbell, Ky., following months of pervasive harassment, which went unchecked by the base's command.

"My husband Wally and I are outraged to learn that yet another Army Private has been the target of harassment and violence at the hands of a fellow soldier. In 2000, following Barry's murder, the Pentagon announced it would take concrete steps to curb anti-gay harassment in our military and to hold accountable those who harass and condone harassment. Nearly six years later, Pentagon leaders have failed to keep their promise. The time has come for them to do just that, or for Congress to hold them accountable if they do not.

"The attack on Private Lawson is inexcusable, as is the Pentagon's failure to train its personnel, hold attackers accountable and treat every service member with the dignity and respect they deserve. According to Sunday's Arizona Daily Star, officials at Fort Huachuca have refused to prosecute the attack on Private Lawson as a felony assault, as recommended by local police. Instead, they appear to have revoked the attacker's weekend pass and asked Private Lawson to sleep on a cot in his drill sergeant's office. Words cannot express how upset we are to learn that no appropriate punishment has been ordered in this case.

"Private Lawson's mother told the Star that she has been crying herself to sleep and is afraid for her son's life. I understand her pain. 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' impacts every service member –- gay and straight alike –- by creating a weapon to end careers and endanger service members through accusations, finger-pointing and rumor. Unless Pentagon leaders finally get a clue and lead the way in combating harassment and discrimination, I fear that attacks like these will continue to make headlines."

Military families want their loved ones home now; Merry Christmas, chickenhawks

No one who demanded this war is serving, has loved ones serving, or knows anyone serving in Iraq. Chickenhawk children stay safe while other people's kids get blown up for goerge's dreams of turning America into a feudal theocracy, and conquering the world.

Military Families to Have Christmas Dinner in Front of Sen. Dianne Feinstein's House; Call to Bring Troops Home Now; Families will Highlight Empty Seats at Dinner Table While Soldiers Serve in Iraq

While Senator Dianne Feinstein and many Americans sit down to enjoy holiday dinner with their loved ones this year, many military families are eating at tables with empty chairs. Military Families Speak Out members view those empty seats at the holiday table as a testament to the unrelenting and unfair burden which this war based on lies has placed upon military families and their loved ones. Some of their loved ones have died in Iraq and will never return. For other families, their loved ones are in harm's way, thousands of miles away this holiday season. For still other families, loved ones have returned home as hollow eyed strangers, suffering from psychological wounds of this war that they will carry for the rest of their lives.

Pro-war, right-wing "entertainers" won't go to Iraq with USO; Merry Christmas, GIs

Goerge turns Iraq into Little Iran; Merry Christmas, Osama

We can only pray they're right about the death of neocon dreams of world conquest

Excerpts

Tehran, Iran, Dec. 23 – The editorial of Iran’s leading hard-line daily hailed the outcome of Iraq’s parliamentary elections as “the creation of the first Islamist state in the Arab world”, and warned against “American plots” to prevent the formation of the new Iraqi government by Iranian-backed Shiite groups.

“Of the 275 seats in Iraq’s new parliament, 140 will belong to pious Islamists, 60 will be occupied by Kurds with excellent ties with Iran, and 40 will belong to Sunni Arabs, most of whom want a sovereign, Islamist state”, the daily Kayhan’s Saturday editorial noted. “The new government – including the President, the Prime Minister, the cabinet, the armed forces and the judiciary – will emerge from this new assembly”.

Kayhan said the election outcome will “increase pressures, both inside and outside the U.S., on [President George W.] Bush to withdraw American troops from Iraq”. “Bush will have to give in and withdraw the bulk of his forces from Iraq in the next few months”, the daily, which reflects the views of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, wrote.

The paper listed the consequences of American withdrawal from Iraq, describing the current situation in Iraq as “the biggest crisis America has faced in recent decades”.

The American defeat and withdrawal from Iraq will forever bury the Neoconservative current in the U.S.,…while the formation of an Islamist state in Iraq, which will be a natural ally of the Islamic Republic of Iran and will form a contiguous link between Iran and Palestine through Syria and Lebanon, will bring about a sea change in the geo-strategic balance in the region in favour of Iran and to America’s detriment. This new alliance with its huge size will directly influence all developments in the Arab and Muslim Middle East”.

Why did the Resluglicon Nationalist Convention declare war on Christmas?

Note also their lies about illegal spying.

Top 12 lies about illegal spying promoted by vast, right-wing conspiracy propagandists

Their mindless minions don't want to hear the truth, they only want to hear how they're better than we are.

Guess how many of their lies accused Clinton of even more things he didn't do?

Big Brother knows everything you've done in the last four years

Remember when resluglicons said they were against Big Brother?

Goerge's friends in the telecom industry let the NSA do virtually unlimited "data mining" on telephone and internet communications in exchange for being allowed to get nearly back to the "Big Bell" monopoly days of yore unmolested by an activist gubmnt.

The best part:

"As part of the program approved by President Bush for domestic surveillance without warrants, the N.S.A. has gained the cooperation of American telecommunications companies to obtain backdoor access to streams of domestic and international communications."

Libruls recruit al-qaida for war on Christmas in Jakarta

Gibson, O'Really? to go there personally to stop this horror. Or not.



How silly do you think these security men feel?


Indonesia deployed thousands of troops to guard churches and places where foreigners gather Friday amid warnings that al-Qaida-linked militants were planning Christmas terror attacks in the world's most populous Muslim nation.

Maj. Gen. Firman Gani, the Jakarta police chief, said Jemaah Islamiyah terrorists might use the holidays to retaliate for the death last month of bomb-making expert Azahari bin Husin, who was gunned down in a police raid.

Azahari's shadowy network is blamed for at least five suicide bombings targeting Western interests since 2002 - including Oct. 1 restaurant attacks on Bali island - that together killed more than 240 people.

It also is accused of Christmas Eve church bombings five years ago that left 19 dead.

"The terrorists have said they will use the momentum of Christmas and the New Year celebrations to carry out attacks," Gani told reporters, adding that there also were indications that Jemaah Islamiyah may be changing its tactics.

"They may not use a car bomb or explosives in bags any more," he cautioned. "They could be carrying small bombs that can be thrown at a building or into a crowd."

Goerge's new Battle of the Bulge

Not his waistline, the hump on his back.

Is Goerge wearing a wire again?

It appears he's wearing an earpiece again as he did during the '04 debate with Kerry. Who's coaching him this time on how to sound like he understands the FISA court?

Birds of a feather: Goerge pardons thief, drunk

Now if only he could find a war criminal to pardon.

Top scientific breathrough of 2005: Evolution

Testing proves Incurious Goerge, the Smirking Chimp shares 96% of DNA with humans. (The other 4% is pure fascist.)


Wide-ranging research published this year, including a study that showed a mere 4 percent difference between human and chimpanzee DNA, built on Charles Darwin's landmark 1859 work "The Origin of Species" and the idea of natural selection, the journal's editors wrote.

"Amid this outpouring of results, 2005 stands out as a banner year for uncovering the intricacies of how evolution actually proceeds," they wrote. "Ironically, also this year, some segments of American society fought to dilute the teaching of even the basic facts of evolution."

Moonie TIMES is a viewspaper, not a newspaper

"All the views that belong at the bottom of a bird cage."

News is information. What they do is pure fascist propaganda.

The Ultimate Hypocrisy: People of faith* still try to prove God's existence

(*Actually, only theofascists do this in their war on education.)

ECERPTS

Can you imagine a more faithless pursuit than trying to prove the existence of God?

Yet that is what the whole "intelligent design" movement is really about, and it seems to me that people of faith should rejoice at the federal court decision Tuesday forbidding the schools of Dover, Pa., to read a statement touting intelligent design in science classes. The eloquent ruling by U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III is a Christmastime blessing.

"Our conclusion today is that it is unconstitutional to teach ID [intelligent design] as an alternative to evolution in a public school science classroom," Jones wrote in a painstaking, 139-page opinion that probably will set the parameters for future battles over intelligent design around the country. No appeal is expected, because the pro-ID school board members who tried to inject religion into the classroom have already been ousted by voters.

ID is the belief that life forms are too complex to have evolved on their own through natural selection and therefore must have had an intelligence -- so powerful that you would have to call it divine -- guiding their development.

The state of Pennsylvania requires its schools to teach evolution, the theory developed by Charles Darwin that most scholars accept as one of the greatest achievements in the history of science. The Dover school board thought it knew better and required that students be made to listen to a statement proclaiming that evolution "is not a fact" but just a theory, that it contains gaps "for which there is no evidence," and that ID "is an explanation of the origin of life that differs from Darwin's view."

Well, it's true that anything is possible -- before Albert Einstein, who would have believed that time passes infinitesimally more slowly for a passenger on a train than for a farmer standing beside the tracks. But equating evolution with ID is like comparing a mighty fortress to a line in the sand. Someday a new theory of the life sciences may supplant Darwin's, just as Einstein's revolutionary theories supplanted those of Isaac Newton. As Jones carefully and forcefully explains in his ruling, however, ID isn't even science at this point. It's belief.

If the illegal wiretaps were done to stop terists, why weren't any arrested?

If by "terists," you mean "Democrats and journalists."


Given that PETA and vegan groups are being investigated by the FBI,
surely those in the US who regularly converse on the phone with real al Qaeda terrorists abroad -- who are, as Asst. Attorney General Moschella writes, "linked to Al Qaeda" -- would be a rich target for investigation and arrest, it would seem. So, why haven't we heard of more than a scattering of arrests around the country of al Qaeda cells? Some of those which have fallen apart (the Detroit case, for one)? Surely if there were 4,000 US persons in the past four years "linked with al Qaeda," who communicated directly with known al Qaeda terrorists, we should have vast sweeping arrests around the country and our papers would be full of these stories, the trials, the deportations, the threats averted...

But the administration has only cited one arrest from the program, the guy who planned to blow up* the Brooklyn Bridge.

(*She meant "bring it down with a blowtorch.")

Cadet rapes down at Air Force Academy

Down, but not out.

You remember the Air Force Academy, right? The place where everybody witnessed for Jesus so much they had to be made to quit it*? Interestingly, the decline in cadet rapes coincides with curtailed theofascist bullyin...er, proselytizing.

Excerpts

Students reported that they believe the Defense Department has been addressing sexual harassment issues at the Air Force Academy in recent years, with 76 percent of female cadets and 85 percent of male cadets saying that they believe sexual harassment has become "less of a problem" there. Three percent of students said the problems have worsened, according to a Pentagon report that is expected to be released today.

Defense officials have been studying sexual harassment and sexual assault in earnest over the past two years, after reports by women at the Air Force Academy of pervasive problems in 2003. Congress has since required surveys and reports, which have noted that military service students encounter about the same extent of sexual harassment as students at civilian colleges and universities.

Still, military officials have expressed concern about the findings and have launched a department-wide effort to prevent and deal with sexual harassment.

The most recent comprehensive survey of students at the three service academies found that, in the 2004-2005 school year, only 6 percent of students experienced sexual assaults, ranging from unwanted touching to rape.

But the survey also found that most female students at the academies were confronted with crude or offensive behavior, that nearly all female students reported dealing with sexist behavior at some point during the school year, and that about 15 percent of all students reported incidents of sexual coercion in which they felt either bribed or threatened into sexual behavior.

Sexist behavior was at the top of the list, with 96 percent of women at the Military Academy, 93 percent of women at the Naval Academy and 82 percent of women at the Air Force Academy reporting
incidents.

*Must have been that 50-minute lecture on religious sensitivity that did the trick

Why would christians need a class on "How To Stop Being An Asshole?" Sorry, I meant "theofascists," which makes this a self-answering question.

Goerge rewrites more history: Says Japanese terists killed thousands of GIs after WWII

Iraq is just like post-war Japan. Just like it. (Except that Japan had attacked us, then tried to develop WMDs--chemical, biological and nucular--to use on us, and Iraq did neither. Plus there were no Japanese terists killing soldiers in the occupation force. But other than that, the two are just alike.)

Goerge gives fiberty to Iraq: Their election was rigged, just like our last two

Goerge gives them fiberty, greedom and lemocracy, and what do they do with it? They pour into the streets by the thousands to protest and give Kool Aid and comfort food to anemones. Why do they hate America and Christmas?

(If only the same percentage of Americans would raise hell when somebody rigs one of our elections.)

Less equal than others: Goerge says Muslim Americans don't have civil rights

Orwell was right in two books*, not just one.

It's reasonable to assume goerge spied on Democrats and journalists

Why else would he bypass the FISA court which would have given him the OK after the fact if the spying was legal? Was it for blackmail purposes the way J. Edgar used to do things?

John has the right question that goerge must be made to answer:

"The Bush administration simply cannot answer this one question - if time was of the essence, why didn't they conduct the searches and get the warrants after the fact, something that is allowed under the FISA law? They conducted the searches alright, but they never once sought the retroactive warrants."

SIDEBAR

Goerge cuts and runs from Iraq; authorizes non-withdrawal withdrawal of troops

http://www.cnn.com/2005/WORLD/meast/12/23/iraq.main/index.html

Now we can add "coward" to the list of words that describe him. Remember, only cowards cut and run. (If goerge had deserted from the Marines instead of the TX ANG, he wouldn't be doing this.)

White House admits it broke the law with wiretaps

But that's okay because God put goerge in office.

Goerge claims the Senate gave him power to spy on law-abiding citizens who opposed him; Sen. Daschle says the Senate did no such thing.

Excerpts

The Bush administration requested, and Congress rejected, war-making authority "in the United States" in negotiations over the joint resolution passed days after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, according to an opinion article by former Senate majority leader Thomas A. Daschle (D-S.D.) in today's Washington Post.

Daschle's disclosure challenges a central legal argument offered by the White House in defense of the National Security Agency's warrantless wiretapping of U.S. citizens and permanent residents. It suggests that Congress refused explicitly to grant authority that the Bush administration now asserts is implicit in the resolution.

The Justice Department acknowledged yesterday, in a letter to Congress, that the president's October 2001 eavesdropping order did not comply with "the 'procedures' of" the law that has regulated domestic espionage since 1978.

The congressional resolution of Sept. 18, 2001, formally titled "Authorization for the Use of Military Force," made no reference to surveillance or to the president's intelligence-gathering powers, and the Bush administration made no public claim of new authority until news accounts disclosed the secret NSA operation.

Aussie atheist libruljunkscientists think the Earth is 14,000 years older than the Bible clearly states

(I did my part in the war on Christmas today. I captured, tortured, killed and ate a candy cane. This weekend, we're going out tearing down nativity scenes, grinding up more candy canes, and forcing people to say, "Happy Holidays.")

Abramamoff set to sink twelve in Congress. (Any bets on how many of them are resluglicons?)

...and the ugly

FEMA still awol from NOLA, so Mennonites and hippies get the jobs done. (Meanwhile, goerge's friends get to keep all that tax money for not doing anything down there...just like Halliburton did in the first year of Goof War II.)

DeptHomeSec is still a circus run by the clowns

What if there really were hordes of terists who hated us for our freedoms? I mean, even more than goerge and his junta do?

Christians put theofascists on notice

Including Falwell. Especially Falwell.

Christmas could be a time for unity

Whatever happened to "Peace on Earth?"

If Falwell, Gibson, O'Really? and all those other hatemongers would just shut up, already.

Verizon declares unrestricted warfare on Christmas

Falwell's head must be about ready to explode. Maybe it will this time.

The sad, little coal town of Lonaconing used to cheer up just once a year, at Christmastime, when holiday lights brightened Main Street.

Stuck between West Virginia and Pennsylvania in the forgotten western finger of Maryland, Lonaconing's only happiness was the annual colored lights strung by Goodwill Fire Co. But there's no holiday joy this year, because Verizon Maryland Inc. and Allegheny Power conspired to keep the lights off the town's utility poles.

Disgusted locals have only one decoration this year: In protest, town workers have put a giant inflatable Grinch outside the Verizon office.

The yuletide nightmare began way back in July, when Lonaconing's town council decided to replace the old light strings with new lights that met modern safety standards.

A work order was sent to the utility company asking that the power outlets be upgraded, as well.

Instead, the two companies waited until November to deliver a grim message: The lights would not be installed as they had been year in and year out, even during World War II.

Why? It seems the town's effort to replace the old lights and power outlets led the utility companies to "inspect" the system for the first time. Suddenly, the whole arrangement was ruled to be unsafe.

Then Verizon sent a threatening letter to the mayor.

ImpeachPAC supports Democratic candidates for Congress who support the immediate and simultaneous impeachment of George Bush and Dick Cheney for their Iraq War lies. (Oh, let's not forget all that illegal spying, and all those no-bid contracts.)

Goerge negotiates with terists!

He'll claim it's some sort of "Christmas Truce" like the Brits and Germans had one day in WWI. Next thing we know, he'll want to give them therapy and cookies. Is this why nearly 2200 GIs have died in Iraq?

BAGHDAD -- American diplomats called it "mission impossible" -- to bend the rules on contact with powerful anti-American Sunni forces in Iraq and negotiate a cease-fire -- all before last week's elections.

Their orders came from U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad. The effort took months and culminated in a day of voting in which Sunni Arabs came out in droves after having boycotted the first parliamentary election a year ago.

The cease-fire period started Dec. 13 and ended Sunday, spanning Thursday's elections. The period passed with no major attacks on Iraqi civilians.

John "Mr. War On Christmas" Gibson throws a hissyfit live, in living color

UPDATE:

After the first hissyfit, defender of Christmas throws another, threatens guest, tells him not to come into a bar when he's drinking there

http://www.thecarpetbaggerreport.com/archives/6155.html

Back to the first hissyfit

Click the headline to read the transcript. He shouted down both his "librul" guest and his supposed defender in what was to have been a "debate" on the war on the war on Christmas. No matter, we all know they made up all that crap about a war on Christmas, so he can keep shouting, for all we care.

My favorite part: The theofascist group, Alliance Defense Fund, sent out fundraising emails to start their war on the war on Christmas last August.

Here's the video.

http://movies.crooksandliars.com/The-Big-StoryGIb.mov

If anybody's listening, will someone please begin the next and all future such "debates" with the following question:

GUEST: "John (or whoever the host is), where do you go to church? I didn't ask you where you are a member, I asked you where you go. When did you attend last? Do you give the required 10% tithe plus offering based on your pre-tax income? I want to call your church and ask them about you, is that okay?"

(You'll be tempted to ask, "Is everyone at your church a lying hatemonger, or are you the only one?" But that might sound a tad adolescent.)

One kancervative blogger doesn't recognize kancervatives anymore

Okay, he doesn't like Big Brother. He's still our enemy on every other front.

For instance:

"They hold up the Patriot Act as a great piece of legislation the Bush Whitehouse (sic) pushed through to fight terrorism (little* seem to realize most of it was written during the Clinton years). (*He means "few.")

FISA court wants to know why goerge thought breaking the law was legal

Presiding judge arranges meeting. This should be good.

Guess what? That "Osama's satphone" story is a complete myth

Now the vast, right-wing conspiracy can blame Clinton for warning Osama with those cruise missiles.

President Bush asserted this week that the news media published a U.S. government leak in 1998 about Osama bin Laden's use of a satellite phone, alerting the al Qaeda leader to government monitoring and prompting him to abandon the device.

The story of the vicious leak that destroyed a valuable intelligence operation was first reported by a best-selling book, validated by the Sept. 11 commission and then repeated by the president.

But it appears to be an urban myth.

The al Qaeda leader's communication to aides via satellite phone had already been reported in 1996 -- and the source of the information was another government, the Taliban, which ruled Afghanistan at the time.

The second time a news organization reported on the satellite phone, the source was bin Laden himself.

Causal effects are hard to prove, but other factors could have persuaded bin Laden to turn off his satellite phone in August 1998. A day earlier, the United States had fired dozens of cruise missiles at his training camps, missing him by hours.

The Bush crime family's miscreant dynasty

They've enriched themselves (and their friends) while impoverishing the presidency.

More on why goerge bypassed the FISA court

In short, the court found the FBI to be big, fat, brownshirted scumbags.

Referring to "the troubling number of inaccurate FBI affidavits in so many FISA applications," the court said in its opinion: "In virtually every instance, the government's misstatements and omissions in FISA applications and violations of the Court's orders involved information sharing and unauthorized disseminations to criminal investigators and prosecutors."

Isn't it amazing how the VR-WC hatemongers tell the same lies at the same time?

"Carter, a Democrat, was president when FISA came into being, so that means goerge can do anything he wants."

Goerge lied (again), this time about the 9/11 hijackers who supposedly hit the Pentagon

The spooks did know about those guys in plenty of time, but bungled the op.

Now, about that "airliner" that hit the Pentagon...where is the wreckage in all those pictures? Lots of fire, but no wings or engines. Why not?

Hitler was a poor student, just like goerge

Which explains why they both wanted to conquer the world, and why their minions hate educated people and education itself.

Conservative, non-activist judge says what we've all known for five years

Goerge cannot be trusted.

Yes, Cheney threatened patriots who insist he and his pal are not above the law

But you wouldn't know it if you read USA Today.

Why goerge spied on Vegans

Makes perfect sense to me. Just like invading Iraq did after Saudis attacked the WTC.

Debunking the pro-illegal spying myths and the lying, fascist brownshirts who spread them

It's easy to do, it just takes a little homework to dig up the, you know, facts.

Dumsfeld says Goof War II has "so little to do with" Osama, he can barely be bothered to think about "this guy"

Wait, "this guy" had his boys attack us four years ago, and now Dumsfeld doesn't even care that nobody knows where "this guy" is?

Why newspapers are still better than amhateradiotalkingheads or cablebabblers

People who read papers opposed Pennsylvania's unconstitutional "intelligent design" scam, those who supported it think Adam and Eve rode vegetarian t-rexes to church. They also mindlessly believed proven liars who pretended to be christians while wiping their butts with the Constitution.

Take the MSNBC poll on impeachment

When I took it, 89% of the 16,000+ takers had said, "YES."

You can only take it once, which is fair, and which also prevents the usual suspects (freepers) from bombing it in favor of their boy, goerge.

Activist president=good, activist judges=bad, very bad

As John Amato asks, will the theofascists hold "Wiretapping Sunday" now?

Flashback: During the 2000 election, resluglicons across the country demonized their opponents in gubernatorial races for being "activist governors," and reminded us that goerge hadn't been one of those evil monsters. But, like they say, that was then, this is now.

California rejoins the Union

Won't re-certify Diebold election-rigging machines.

Well, then, I guess I'm not "serious about terism," there, Dick

Cheney throws down another gantlet, which I gladly pick up.

Terism. Terists. War on terr. Okay, Osama's boys (mostly Saudis) attacked the WTC--the World Trade Center, not the American Trade Center--on 9/11. Then, naturally, goerge invaded Iraq, leaving Osama to run around and make home videos for Al Jazeera. Osama's still free.

Then goerge abolished the Constitution, started spying on high school peaceniks and Vegans, and caught narry a terist in the process. And Osama's still free.

Then Diebold rigged the 2004 election so goerge could keep keeping us safe from terists who still haven't done anything in over four years. And Osama's still free.

So, no, Dick, I don't support everything you do. I don't support anything you do. You're a lying, fascist, warmongering criminal, so why should I? Every sentence you've uttered in the past five years has been a lie. If you said today was Wednesday, I'd know my calendar was a misprint.

Bottom line: If Dick and his gang tell me there are terists around the corner waiting to kill me for my freedoms, that's the best proof possible that there are no terists anywhere waiting to kill me for my freedoms. I've been saying this for three years, and it's still true. There are no terists. If there were, they'd have done something else. But they haven't. And don't tell me about those two nutjobs who "planned" to bring down the Brooklyn Bridge with blowtorches. One terist could blow up an elementary school whenever he wanted to, and no one could stop him. Why aren't they doing it? Because there are no terists.

Goerge sends nuke sub to intimidate Canada

There must be oil under the Arctic ice cap.

Somebody must have told goerge that, but for a very little bit, Benedict Arnold almost captured Quebec during the Revolutionary War, meaning all of Canada would have been the 14th colony. The combination of grabbing more land and betraying his country must have given goerge new ideas of world conquest.

"Gross misconduct"

Goerge ignored letters from 122 elected officials and thousands of citizens. So this is what we call "natural consequences."

Excerpts

In brief, we have found that there is substantial evidence the President, the Vice President and other high ranking members of the Bush Administration misled Congress and the American people regarding the decision to go to war with Iraq; misstated and manipulated intelligence information regarding the justification for such war; countenanced torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment and other legal violations in Iraq; and permitted inappropriate retaliation against critics of their Administration.

There is at least a prima facie case that these actions by the President, Vice-President and other members of the Bush Administration violate a number of federal laws, including (1) Committing a Fraud against the United States; (2) Making False Statements to Congress; (3) The War Powers Resolution; (4) Misuse of Government Funds; (5) federal laws and international treaties prohibiting torture and cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment; (6) federal laws concerning retaliating against witnesses and other individuals; and (7) federal laws and regulations concerning leaking and other misuse of intelligence.

While these charges clearly rise to the level of impeachable misconduct, because the Bush Administration and the Republican-controlled Congress have blocked the ability of Members to obtain information directly from the Administration concerning these matters or responding to these charges, more investigatory authority is needed before recommendations can be made regarding specific Articles of Impeachment. As a result, we recommend that Congress establish a select committee with subpoena authority to investigate the misconduct of the Bush Administration with regard to the Iraq war detailed in this Report and report to the Committee on the Judiciary on possible impeachable offenses.

Goerge could have had Osama five years ago!

And he wouldn't have had to illegally eavesdrop on anybody.

"George Bush, the man whose prime campaign plank has been his ability to wage war on terror, could have had Osama bin Laden's head handed to him on a platter on his very first day in office, and the offer held good until February 2 of 2002."

Theofascists don't care about poor children

Wouldn't you love to hear Falwell, Robertson, Dobson and Perkins explain why they didn't join these good folks?

A national network of faith-based groups is making a last minute appeal to moderate Republican senators to turn down Medicaid cuts that would fall most heavily on low-income infants and children.

Bishop Roy Dixon, of the Church of God in Christ and PICO, a national network of 1,000 religious congregations, wrote in a letter today to Senate Majority Leader Frist: "The conference agreement will unnecessarily decrease children's access to health care and increase the number of uninsured children. Protecting the pharmaceutical and insurance industries while asking low income infants and children to cut back on their health care usage or pay access fees they cannot afford is financially shortsighted and inhumane."

Organizations working to expand health care coverage for children are angry at the budget agreement passed by the House of Representatives early Monday morning because it targets poor and low-income children for benefit cuts and new access fees, but drops proposals made by the Senate to reduce overpayments to pharmaceutical companies and HMOs.

Goerge begged NY TIMES not to rat him out

"We’re seeing clearly now that Bush thought 9/11 gave him license to act like a dictator."

Excerpts

The problem was not that the disclosures would compromise national security, as Bush claimed at his press conference. His comparison to the damaging pre-9/11 revelation of Osama bin Laden’s use of a satellite phone, which caused bin Laden to change tactics, is fallacious; any Americans with ties to Muslim extremists—in fact, all American Muslims, period—have long since suspected that the U.S. government might be listening in to their conversations. Bush claimed that “the fact that we are discussing this program is helping the enemy.” But there is simply no evidence, or even reasonable presumption, that this is so. And rather than the leaking being a “shameful act,” it was the work of a patriot inside the government who was trying to stop a presidential power grab.

No, Bush was desperate to keep the Times from running this important story—which the paper had already inexplicably held for a year—because he knew that it would reveal him as a law-breaker.

Daschle calls goerge the liar that we all know him to be

The resolution expresses a serious concern about the growing activity of extremist, racist and xenophobic organizations in the world. The Russian Foreign Ministry is concerned that some countries (i.e. the US and Japan) voted against the document, while many countries (all EU members) abstained.

"The Republican War on Science" to be documentary

About time.

EXCLUSIVE: Dems FINALLY say they'll crawl up goerge's butt over pre-war lies, and more

They're right, the Constitution is absolutely in a crisis, and has been for five years.

House Judiciary Committee Democrats, spearheaded by Congressman John Conyers (D-MI), are set to release possibly the sharpest congressional critique to date surrounding Iraq, RAW STORY has learned.

The report, titled "The Constitution in Crisis: The Downing Street Minutes and Deception, Manipulation, Torture, Retribution and Coverups in the Iraq War," is slotted to be made available to the public Tuesday. RAW STORY acquired a copy of the book’s cover and some additional information about the document today.

According to Democratic aides, the report will focus on alleged manipulation of pre-war intelligence by the White House, specifically covering such topics as the Downing Street Minutes as well as the White House position on the Geneva Conventions and international law as regards its policies toward prisoners of war. Sources say the report is slated to be published as a book.

Goerge just said the Constitution gives him the authority to wipe his butt with the Constitution. And 9-11 gave him the authority to invade Iraq to fight al-qaeda (who were in Afghanistan).

Blamed only Democrats for blocking unPatriot Act, ignored resluglicons who sided with them.

Said "holiday season" and "holidays;" ignored Christmas.

Said respecting civil rights is "shameful," helps (his) enemy.

Blamed "leaks," "press" for 9-11.

Claimed he had legal authority to break the law.

Said he was "optimistic" about Iraq's corrupt, new fundamentalist government.

Ignored question asking what was his biggest mistake; repreated "invading Iraq was the right decision" mantra.

Says eavesdropping was done only outside this country, but he'll do it here if he wants to. So, there. Nyah.

Understands why people are concerned about civil liberties, but plans to continue trampling on them.

FISA is bad, but he'll abide by it...when he has to.

Admits using bad intel to sell his war, but doesn't take responsibility for current division over his war. Blamed everybody else for his order to invade Iraq.

Still want us to believe he invaded Iraq to bring them democracy instead of WMDs and 9-11.

Says ignoring our civil liberties protects our civil liberties, and he'll eavesdrop on us whenever he damn well pleases.

http://www.forbes.com/work/feeds/afx/2005/12/18/afx2400383.html

So could you and goerge if you'd paid attention to the warnings you got without wiping your butts with the Constitution, you fascist chickenhawk.

ANOTHER FLASHBACK

Condo: "I believe the document was titled, 'Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the US.'"

http://www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/04/10/bush.briefing/

Damn that Clinton for letting 9-11 happen eight months after he left office.

How "intelligent design" will replace science if the theofascists get their way

Look at text books from the 1800s, and get prepared for a good fight.

Hypocritical, theofascist abomination Reed says he's a better man for having been caught

But won't return the money.

Wasn't he supposed to have been a good, christian boy before he got into bed with the gambling industry, and other crooks?

Has goerge FINALLY awakened the sleeping giant formerly known as "the free press?"

Looks like it's beginning to happen, at long last.

Goerge: "It's good to be the king."
Feingold: "You're not a king."

Santa isn't the only one who knows if you've been bad or good

Goerge wants fascists like Roberts and Scalito on the Extreme Court to kill the right to privacy that the Constitution so cleary protects.

Why didn't goerge get the warrants that FISA had always approved?

http://www.defensetech.org/archives/002030.html

Was it, as one congressman suspected, a "change in technology" more than a change in policy? If they have a new toy, is anyone safe from it? Not with this junta in power.

Right-wing militias=good, Quakers=bad, very bad

Goerge's list of "threats" contained not one right-wing group.

2154 GIs have died so Iraq could get a government as corrupt and fundamentalist as our own

Islamist fundamentalists sweep elections. So much for fiberty, greedom and lemocracy in the middle east, huh?

Condo caught lying...again

This time about goerge's illegal spying on law-abiding citizens.

This fascist junta must be put out of business in next year's mid-terms.

Jebya pretends to be worried about Diebold's rigged elections

What he's actually worried about is that they won't be able to rig things when he runs for the White House as they did for his criminal brother.

NY TIMES finally realizes Diebold is a problem

http://www.bradblog.com/archives/00002174.htm

But they still aren't sure how they feel about that problem.

Resluglicons help each other steal our money

"Pioneers" should be called "Pirates."

Cheney rallies the troops!

"I'm not Jessica Simpson!" ("Hoo-ah!")

"These colors don't run!" (Sound of crickets.)

GOP bullies invoke "martial law" to make House members vote on bills they haven't read

Is this how they uphold their oaths to defend the Constitution?

Another resluglicon tries to distance himself from his president

Graham is clearly up for re-election next year. Don't let these people get away with their new-found moral indignation. They loved their president until he started getting widely outted for the lying criminal that he is. Hold them accountable in next year's mid-terms. Whatever they say between now and then, they were all for everything goerge wanted for the past five years. Screw 'em all.

TALON is another step closer to a fascist police state

It's simply not possible to justify spying on law-abiding citizens.

This entire administration must be overthrown in next year's mid-terms.

It's time to impeach Gonzales (along with goerge's entire fascist junta)

He lied about his part in goerge's illegal spying on law-abiding citizens.

Never trust anyone in goerge's illegitimate junta. They're all lying, criminal fascists who want to turn our country into a feudal theocracy.

Goerge's mindless minions in the vast, right-wing conspiracy have only lies, distortions to defend warrantless spying

And by distortions, I mean deliberate distortions repeated on purpose by talkingheads who knew they were deliberate distortions.

Never listen to the vast, right-wing conspiracy. They're all lying, hatemongering, fascist bullies.

If there really was a war on Christmas, us libruls would be tearing down nativity scenes

Remember how the ancestors of today's theofascists treated the Jews in Europe 70 years ago? That was a war.

War on war on Christmas about power, not Jesus.

And, of course, fundraising.

Never trust a theofascist. They're all lying, hatemongering bullies.

Resluglicons see education as just another way to steal tax dollars

And screw those who want to better themselves.

Never trust a resluglicon. They're all criminals.
