Pelosi Hopes You'll Buy Her Bull By January

The Speaker is delaying the next war money vote until January 2008. Even the corporate media finds that significant, while failing to report on yesterday's vote of billions more for the occupation of Iraq in a Continuing Resolution - the vote that made the delay possible. Pelosi no doubt hopes that by January she will be able to argue that the next presidency is only a year away, so there's really no point in ending the occupation. This will not only be predictable, it will also be disgusting since tens of thousands of lives will be lost in the process, and it will not only be predictable and disgusting, but it will also be laughable since Clinton, Obama, and Edwards have now said they'll likely keep the occupation going until 2013 (practically guaranteeing a Republican win). So waiting until 2009 (no matter who wins) only gets us 4 more years to wait. We're through waiting, Nancy. We're through RIGHT NOW.

Countdown: Bush Used Bogus Terror Threat To Scare Votes For FISA Bill !

By: Logan Murphy on Tuesday, September 25th, 2007 at 6:38 AM - PDT

Keith Olbermann has been tracking the Bush Administration’s use of trumped up terror alerts to manipulate the American people for the past two years, but in this latest Nexus of Politics & Terror report on Countdown, it appears the president stooped to a new low by using a bogus terror threat that specifically targeted Capitol Hill to manipulate members of Congress just hours before a crucial vote on the FISA bill last August.

According to Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA), Chairwoman of the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Terrorism Risk Assessment, the Bush administration knowingly used bogus intelligence to make lawmakers believe there was the chance of an imminent attack on the U.S. Capitol, thus frightening them into passing the temporary expansion of his powers to spy on Americans under the
FISA act. Keith talks with former Reagan administration official and chairman of the American Freedom Agenda Bruce Fein, who has called for the impeachment of both Dick Cheney and George Bush about Bush’s unconstitutional power grabs and how the Democrats can exert their powers as a co-equal branch of government by refusing to fund any spending mandated in future FISA bills.

Senator Feinstein,

Still think Impeachment is not a good thing?
Open your eyes,and ears!
Will history show that you were too scared to use your common sense!

Is it ok for the President,and Vice-President to break the Law?
Just Because they are President,and Vice-President?

Well That Is What You Are Doing!By you,and your fellow Democratic Congress members doing Nothing!
No accountability! None!

And,You Can't even get a Voting Bill right!!
Paper Ballot's Senator!Period!
Read the data!
It's that simple..
Or,are you scared of the Republicans on that issue Too?

Thank you,..

Seven CIA Veterans Challenge 9/11 Commission Report

by Alan Miller

Official Account of 9/11 a “Joke” and a “Cover-up”

September 23, 2007 – Seven CIA veterans have severely criticized the official account of 9/11 and have called for a new investigation. “I think at simplest terms, there’s a cover-up. The 9/11 Report is a joke,” said Raymond McGovern, 27-year veteran of the CIA, who chaired National Intelligence Estimates during the seventies. “There are a whole bunch of unanswered questions. And the reason they’re unanswered is because this administration will not answer the questions,” he said. McGovern, who is also the founder of VIPS (Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity), is one of many signers of a petition to reinvestigate 9/11.[1]

During his 27-year CIA career, McGovern personally delivered intelligence briefings to Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, their Vice Presidents, Secretaries of State, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and many other senior government officials. Upon retirement in 1990, McGovern was awarded the CIA’s Intelligence Commendation Medallion and received a letter of appreciation from then President George H. W. Bush. However, McGovern returned the award[2] in 2006 in protest of the current George W. Bush Administration’s advocacy and use of torture.

In his blurb for 9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out,” edited by David Ray Griffin and Peter Dale Scott, McGovern wrote[3]: “It has long been clear that the Bush-Cheney administration cynically exploited the attacks of 9/11 to promote its imperial designs. But the present volume confronts us with evidence for an even more disturbing conclusion: that the 9/11 attacks were themselves orchestrated by this administration precisely so they could be thus exploited. If this is true, it is not merely the case, as the Downing Street memos show, that the stated reason for attacking Iraq was a lie. It is also the case that the whole “war on terror” was based on a prior deception. This book hence confronts the American people---indeed the people of the world as a whole---with an issue second to none in importance and urgency. I give this book, which in no way can be dismissed as the ravings of ‘paranoid conspiracy theorists,’ my highest possible recommendation.”

William Christison, a 29-year CIA veteran, former National Intelligence Officer (NIO) and former Director of the CIA's Office of Regional and Political Analysis also describes the 9/11 Commission Report as a “joke” and offers even more outspoken criticism. In a 2006 audio interview[4] he said, "We very seriously need an entirely new very high level and truly independent investigation of the events of 9/11. I think you almost have to look at the 9/11 Commission Report as a joke and not a serious piece of analysis at all.”

Dianne Feinstein -- Symbol of the Worthless Beltway Democrat
In the wake of the series of profound failures that define the 2007 Democratic Congress, there is much debate over what accounts for this behavior. There are almost 300 "Congressional Democrats" and they are not a monolithic group. Some of them are unrelenting defenders of their core liberal political values and some are committed to providing meaningful opposition to the radicalism and corruption of the Bush administration. But as the sorry record of the 2007 Congress conclusively proves, they are easily outnumbered in the House and Senate -- especially the Senate -- by Bush-enabling and Bush-supporting Democrats.

The standard excuse offered by many apologists for Bush-enabling Democrats -- that they support the Bush agenda and capitulate to the right-wing noise machine due to political fear of being depicted as too liberal or "soft on terror" -- is clearly inapplicable to many, if not most, of the enablers. California's Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein provides a perfect case study for understanding why the Congress has done virtually nothing to oppose the most extreme Bush policies, while doing much actively to support it.

Feinstein represents a deep blue state and was just easily re-elected to her third term last year. She won't run for re-election, if she ever does, until 2012, when she will be 80 years old. Her state easily re-elected a Senator, Barbara Boxer, with a much more liberal voting record than Feinstein's. Political fear cannot possibly explain her loyal support for the Bush agenda on the most critical issues decided by the Senate.

Additionally, Feinstein is a 74-year-old divorced Jewish woman currently on her third husband, and it is thus extremely unlikely that she harbors any hopes of running in the future on a national ticket. She has as secure a political position as any politician in the country. Whatever explains what she does, it has nothing to do with "spinelessness" or fear. What would she possibly fear?

And yet, her votes over the last several years, and especially this year after she was safely re-elected, are infinitely closer to the Bush White House and her right-wing Senate colleagues than they are to the base of her party or to the constituents she allegedly represents. Just look at what she has done this year on the most critical and revealing votes:


Tracking Political Prosecutions

Tracking Political Prosecutions
Submitted by toniD on Sun, 09/23/2007 - 10:28am.

In the last two weeks, two sources, one of them inside of the Justice Department, have told me that a scheme was hatched in the upper echelons of the Bush Administration shortly after it took office in 2001 or early in 2002. The project identified John Edwards and Hillary Clinton as likely Democratic challengers to President Bush, and identified prominent trial lawyers around the United States as the likely financial vehicle for Edward’s rise. It directed that their campaign finance records be fly-specked, and that offenses not be treated as administrative matters but rather as serious criminal offenses.

The scheme contemplated among other things that raids be staged on the law offices involved, and that the records seized not be limited to campaign finance—there was an acute interest in all politically oriented documents, in order to seize valuable intelligence on strategic planning from the enemy camp.

This all sounds rather fantastic—even more insidious than the enemies list days of the Nixon era. It is precisely the sort of crude harassment that a primitive dictatorship would use against its enemies—like Alexander Lukashenko in today’s Belarus, for instance. But as the descriptions were passed to me, I instantly recognized the pattern described recently in a case which has made the headlines in Michigan involving a prominent lawyer there, and a second case in Los Angeles. According to one source, the number of these cases is at least five and they are scattered about the country. One case, described to me in some detail, closely matches the pattern in Michigan and Los Angeles and occurred in the south on the Gulf of Mexico.

Why, I wondered, would the attorneys involved not scream bloody murder about this? Then it struck me. The threat of criminal investigation and prosecution is devastating to their law practices. Of course, they would keep it completely secret. And that silence has made the entire scheme possible. I am told that these cases involved the attorneys general personally—both John Ashcroft and Alberto Gonzales—that their go-ahead was needed to stage the raids. And that in each case, the greatest concern within the political pirates commanding the operation has been that the public would get wind of the bigger picture. It was essential to pull it off that each case be viewed as something standing all on its own, and that the fact that there was a politically motivated project be obscured.



Now this is a story that might,and should have legs!!

Ho hum..Just the Bush Administration breaking the law,again!
Maybe,just maybe this might put some Republican law breaking asses in jail!
We can only hope Justice will be done..

After smothering efforts by war critics in Congress to drastically cut U.S. troop levels in Iraq, President Bush plans to ask lawmakers next week to approve another massive spending measure -- totaling nearly $200 billion -- to fund the war through next year, Pentagon officials said.If Bush's spending request is approved, 2008 will be the most expensive year of the Iraq war.In 2004, the two conflicts, Iraq and Afghanistan together cost $94 billion; in 2005, they cost $108 billion; in 2006, $122 billion.

This isn't a "war against terrorism," it's a mugging of the taxpayers for corporate profiteering.

Tell Congress to stop the double-speak about not having 60 votes in the Senate.

Over 800 of our young men
Submitted by Anonymous on Thu, 09/20/2007 - 2:09am.
Over 800 of our young men and women have died in Iraq since the Democrats took control of Congress on January 4th. Tell Congress to stop the double-speak about not having 60 votes in the Senate. All money bills originate in the House. The Democrats have a majority in the House. If the House appropriates only enough funds to insure the safe and rapid removal of our troops from Iraq, the war will essentially be over. If the Senate Republicans kill the bill, or if Bush vetoes the measure, then there are zero funds for Iraq, and the war will end.
Tell Congress to listen to the people. Stop funding the war. End this tragic war NOW. JCL

Stop Funding The Iraq War!!
Please Impeach Bush,and Cheney!!
Thank you,.

Say, back to those heady days of just before Larry Craig pleaded guilty to a widened stance. NPR is reporting that, not only is Craig considering reneging on his resignation, he's also looking into whether he can call for a do-over on his guilty plea. Apparently, his conversation with Arlen Specter has convinced him that he can beat not only the heat to give up his Senate seat, but roll back the crime to which he's already pled. While testing the unidirectionality of time's arrow, Craig has also requested that the Senate ethics committee drop their investigation.

A short course in Jedi mind tricks might be in order if Craig wants America to forget his bathroom antics, but his fighting spirit has to be encouraged. It's not often you see someone willing to simultaneously combat the pressure from his entire party, the legal system, the combined comedians of North America, and Einstein. Go for it, Larry.
