the "i" word

my grandaddy funded nazi's!Lisa Sorg of Uruknet writes: The argument for impeaching Bush isn’t based on disagreements over philosophy or policy, but on the Constitution. As detailed in a 3,900-word article in January 30 issue of The Nation, impeachable offenses include presidential abuses of power that endanger the constitutional system.

Elizabeth Holtzman of The Nation: Finally, it has started. People have begun to speak of impeaching President George W. Bush ... As a former member of Congress who sat on the House Judiciary Committee during the impeachment proceedings against President Richard Nixon, I believe they are right to do so.

Ronnie Dugger of the Texas Observer: The year 2006 will be historic for the nation, and probably for humanity. Texans Bush and Rove and their conspirators in the second Bush presidency have disgraced American democracy at home and in the world with debasements of our nation and our values that have now entered their climactic phase.

Knight Ridder Washington Bureau: The word "impeachment" is popping up increasingly these days and not just off the lips of liberal activists spouting predictable bumper-sticker slogans. After the unfounded claims about [WMD's] and recent news of domestic spying without warrants, mainstream politicians and ordinary voters are talking openly about the possibility that President Bush could be impeached.

Detroit Free Press: A Democratic congressman, a prominent legal scholar and a self-described target of government surveillance urged Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee on Friday to consider impeaching President George W. Bush for his domestic surveillance program.

bush could seize absolute control

i'll blast you into skull and bones! hahahaahaa!Doug Thompson of Capitol Hill Blue writes: Bush has signed executive orders giving him sole authority to impose martial law, suspend habeas corpus and ignore the Posse Comitatus Act...
This would give him absolute dictatorial power over the government with no checks and balances.

Bush discussed imposing martial law on American streets in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks by activating “national security initiatives” put in place by Ronald Reagan during the 1980s.

year of living dangerously

which one still works for the CIA?

Tom Engelhardt writes: 2006 is sure to be the year of living dangerously -- for the Bush administration and for the rest of us. In the wake of revelations of warrantless spying by the NSA, we have already embarked on what looks distinctly like a constitutional crisis... In the meantime, the President, Vice President, Secretaries of Defense and State, various lesser officials, crony appointees, acolytes, legal advisors, leftover neocons, spy-masters, strategists, spin doctors, ideologues, lobbyists, Republican Party officials, and congressional backers are intent on packing the Supreme Court with supporters of an "obscure philosophy" of unfettered Presidential power called "the unitary executive theory" and then foisting a virtual cult of the imperial presidency on the country.

dystopian nightmare

a total surveillance Big Brother societySteve Watson of Infowars writes: The implementation of such technology represents a giant leap into a total surveillance Big Brother society. People are faced with walking into booths raising their hands above their heads like they're a criminal and being electronically scanned... The general public will accept any level of intrusiveness so long as it gives the IMPRESSION that they are safer, in reality it doesn't make anyone safer it just eliminates your liberty.

crow gives bush the business

i don't believe in your war, mr. bush!NY Daily News: Sheryl Crow can't get George Bush off her mind. Like his father, the President has sought to turn America into "an imperial power and create strongholds over oil-heavy countries in order for us to control and manipulate them," she told us. "Now, if we pull out [of Iraq] we are going to leave a complete and total mess. We don't even know who we're fighting over there."

the whitewashing of ariel sharon

The Whitewashing of Ariel SharonSaree Makdisi for the Los Angeles Times writes: From the beginning to the end of his career, Sharon was a man of ruthless and often gratuitous violence. The waypoints of his career are all drenched in blood, from the massacre he directed at the village of Qibya in 1953, in which his men destroyed whole houses with their occupants — men, women and children — still inside, to the ruinous invasion of Lebanon in 1982, in which his army laid siege to Beirut, cut off water, electricity and food supplies and subjected the city's hapless residents to weeks of indiscriminate bombardment by land, sea and air.

operation: hollywood

wag the dog"You must glorify war in order to get the public to accept the fact that you're going to send their sons and daughters to die."

so as we approach oscar season, you should know that the pentagon uses hollywood for propaganda .

Brian Courtis of The Age writes: "We hear less...about the effects of the powerful relationship that has grown over the years between the Pentagon and the Hollywood studios, a partnership that not only can save millions of dollars for filmmakers and produce fine recruiting propaganda for Washington, but can twist history and reality to produce the ultimate in international spin."
