Why Does George Bush Insist upon Calling the Iraq War the War on Terror?
Categories :: Bush Administration

A Miami Herald columnist suggests that George Bush is “delusional.” I would suggest that George Bush is simply recognizing that by calling the unnecessary Iraq War at this point the war on terror, he smoothly makes the transition. Bush demands the power of a president using the world war to give him the ultimate war powers in every aspect of our lives.

PowerGate's Hit Parade

To those following the sadly disturbing RoveGate, TreasonGate, PlameGate, CIAGate saga, these latest details are all part of a very simple scandal: this is about Power—getting it, keeping it, and destroying anyone who threatens to take it—at any price. Abuse of power is easy when you also openly embrace a culture of corruption and greed. But it’s just plain showy when you have a parade.

Last week I received an e-mail from a prominent Democrat who recommended a letter writing campaign to George W.

This week there has been an equally assiduous effort to implore Bush to fire Karl Rove.

Like Rats Leaving a Sinking Ship, Certain Media Moguls and Karl Rove Say, "I Didn't Name a C.I.A. Operative!"
Categories :: Bush Administration

It would be almost amusing if it weren’t so terribly tragic that, when a law is broken, Bush’s confidante, Karl Rove, and the media spinmeisters instantly deny any involvement in breaking a law protecting C.I.A. operatives, when such a disclosure could lead to death. This entire incident proves how diabolical the response can be when anyone disagrees with the Administration’s policies, which some idiots claim operates on divine counsel.

The question “Is Bush a war criminal?” is one that the Democrats could have used in their campaign to thwart Bush’s bid for a second term.

The Department of Homeland Security is limited as to how many individuals can be held pending deportation hearings or removal. Why? The single answer is they have very few places to hold them.

Last week Bush took time off from explaining his plan to “save” Social Security long enough to focus on the nomination of John Bolton, a unique choice of a perennial UN baiter and “go it alone” zealot to serve as ambassador to the international body.

Is Bush's Social Security Crisis Really a Diversionary Tactic?
Categories :: Bush Administration

Instead of trying to control the staggering budget deficit the Bush Administration has created the worst one in U.S. history. George Bush whizzes around the nation in Air Force One luxury, preparing for another “fear tactic syndrome” speech to his carefully screened audiences at his every stop. The “fear syndrome” approach worked effectively to frighten many in the U.S. into thinking the nation had to go to war in Iraq to survive. The robot Congress fell for this false pitch. So did a lot of the population of the U.S., so why not try it again?

The key to destroying any nation begins with the destruction of its currency. Strong nations have strong currencies.

Considering his important position and potential for danger both in America and abroad, Frank sees it as imperative to replace Bush before it is too late. The final passage of the epilogue in his informative work, Bush on the Couch: Inside the Mind of the President, sends a blunt warning to the American people:

From WMD to WSD; from the Clousseau Brigade to Duct Tape
Categories :: Bush Administration

All of us following events in Iraq know about WMD, the shorthand for a weapon of mass destruction. What is of equivalent importance is another shorthand term. It is WSD and stands for something basic and pervasive in today’s grimy international political scene. It refers to a Warrior at a Safe Distance.

Top 21 Pieces of Evidence that Show Iraq is only the First Step to 'Reshaping the Middle East': A Reference for Seekers of Truth
Categories :: Bush Administration :: Foreign Policy :: Iraq :: Reference

Have you ever wondered what would happen if George W. Bush is sent back to the White House in November? What do you think this administration would do as an encore to the invasion of Iraq? There are several sources that offer some insight into that question. In particular we can shed some light with a short search into 1) the 9/11 Commision’s final report, 2) The self-described neoconservative agenda, and 3) quotes from, and documents authored by various members of the Bush administration.

Bush: Dangerously out of Touch
Categories :: Bush Administration

Now, we've heard this over and over again from the President and his Republican party: Kerry is out of touch with the heartland, Democrats don't share your values, Howard Dean is a latte-drinking Volvo-driving something or other. Well, I think it's about time somebody turned this nonsense on its head.

George Bush and Kenneth Lay Democracy
Categories :: Bush Administration

What kind of “democracy” exactly are we fighting for in Iraq and Afghanistan? Is it the brand of “democracy” existing today in the U.S.A.? A degenerate democracy where it is no longer the “will of the people” but the tremendous power of the money, the Almighty Dollar, being poured into the political campaigns of vested interests of “big business”, such as the shameful funding facts revolving around the political power purchased by American pharmaceutical corporations.

Where is the Outcry as Children are Sodomized and Tortured in Iraq?
Categories :: Bush Administration

William Rivers Pitt in the lead article today on the fromthewilderness.com site has asked the crucial question of what has happened to the mainstream media on documented reports of the sodomy and torture of children at Abu Ghraib and other detention centers. On CNN this afternoon the big report was the latest bellyaching of Republican House Speaker Dennis Hastert that the documents former Clinton National Security Adviser Sandy Berger took from classified government archives might have constituted an unsuccessful attempt “to rewrite history.” Hastert, never known for subtlety or imagination, is claiming that perhaps Berger’s motive was to undercut the 9-11 Commission to make the Bush administration look bad. Actually, Congressman Hastert, the Bush administration makes itself perpetually look bad without any assistance required. Meanwhile reporters reveal that the documents marked top secret contained the same information that 9-11 Commission members already knew independently.

George W. Bush: Our Divine Right President
Categories :: Bush Administration

Reported by the Lancaster New Era, President George W. Bush during a campaign swing through Pennsylvania stated in a private meeting with an Amish group “I trust God speaks through me.” Americans have become more and more accustomed to the remarks of G.W. Bush with respect to religion and his relationship to a conservative form of Christian ideology but this comment is clearly a dangerous sign. Is this the inarticulate Bush or is this Bush revealed? For Bush supporters the individual words really don’t mean much; this is simply an expression of faith. For those who oppose Bush or merely question Bush, the words do have meaning.

What About The Axis of Evil?
Categories :: Bush Administration

President Bush in one of his State of the Union messages devoted a single sentence to North Korea, one to Iran, and five to Iraq. To quote from his historical declaration of the United States’ now determining which nations are good and which are evil, was a privilege formerly reserved for God, following Christian biblical viewpoint, stating, “Judge not lest ye be judged in like manner.”

The Bushies have resorted again to that tired old refrain about being in the mainstream while their opponents are too liberal and out of step with the heart and soul of America. This unceasing mantra is flat out wrong, and the Americans they claim to represent are in the forefront in rejecting it.

Cheney Questioned in CIA Leak Probe
Categories :: Bush Administration

We have an interesting update to the “Is Another Watergate Beckoning?” story. Today’s USA Today reports via Associated Press the questioning of Vice President Dick Cheney in the continuing investigation by the Office of Special Counsel into the leaking of the name of CIA operative Valerie Plame by columnist Robert Novak.

Is Another Watergate Beckoning?
Categories :: Bush Administration

The widely discussed decision of George W. Bush last week to hire private counsel James E. Sharp prompts one to wonder if another Watergate is beckoning, and much sooner than later. As John Dean mentioned in his column at FindLaw.com, the idea of Bush taking this step as a purely precautionary measure is highly unlikely. It appears far more plausible that the old maxim of “where there’s smoke there’s fire” instead applies.

Is Tenet Bush's Designated John Dean?
Categories :: Bush Administration

As Richard Nixon began sustaining the first injurious fallout from the Watergate Scandal, the repercussions of which would ultimately topple him from power, his strategy was to present White House Counsel John Dean as designated administration sacrificial lamb. In his address to the nation announcing resignations in the wake of developing disclosures, Nixon praised close subordinates H.R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman as dedicated public servants. In his counsel’s case, he stated tersely, “John Dean also resigned.” The statement was as subtle as the proverbial sledgehammer, and was meant to be as harsh as its delivery denoted.

Bush's Dangerous Rush to Theocracy

Escape from Iraq: Bush and Blair Plan their Election Year Breakout

It has become clear even within staunch Republican ranks that the malaise in Iraq has become a gradually sinking anchor, pulling with it the president’s approval ratings as well as his hopes for reelection. Iraq, after all, was fashioned as the driving engine upon which Bush would base his November renewal at the White House.
