Anti-Bush Campaign Growing
Categories :: Bush Administration

While U.S. service personnel are fighting and dying in Iraq, just as they did in Vietnam. Anti-war activists seek to confront White House resident George Bush to ask a simple question, “Why did the United States go to war in Iraq, and why are they still there?”

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.

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.

Liar! Liar! The Republican Political House is on Fire!
Categories :: Bush Administration

Having seen President Bush survive going to war in Iraq and knowing how many died because of these lies and forged documents that are responsible for all this hideous deaths and destruction we see every day in Iraq on television, did you really expect him and his Republican hypocrites to do the fair thing about “firing” Karl Rove, as Bush claimed he would fire anyone who leaked the identity of any CIA operative?

How Many Billions of Taxpayer Dollars will it take to Bring Democracy to Iraq?
Categories ::

The answer to that valid question of the cost involved in bringing democracy to Iraq is that there isn’t enough money in any nation’s treasury to hand over a “democratic government” and the accompanying freedom. Democracy cannot be bought and sold like a lot our representatives are obviously bought and sold by the lobbyists hovering like vultures around Washington.

Where is the outrage over the pension funds of U.S. industry coming up approximately $459 billion short? The insurance fund set up by the U.S. government, on which many of the corporate executives apparently figured would bail them out, is in the hole.

How Repblicans Let Inflation Rock The Nation

With the George Bush Midas touch in reverse operation everywhere he has had any influence, the U.S.A. is undergoing raging inflation. When the salary of the average worker can’t keep pace with the price of buying a play to live, we are in big trouble.

Is Bush a War Criminal?
Categories :: Bush Administration

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. It is astounding that the so-called moral Republicans apparently place far more emphasis on the commandment “Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery!” than on the commandment “Thou Shalt Not Kill!”

Letter to Time Over The Bush Media Roast

Ignorant, Arrogant Religious Right Radicals Strive to Destroy Democracy for Theocracy and Plunge America into The Dark Ages
Categories :: Fundamentalism

Ignorance and arrogance have never stopped religious fanatics from trying to force their bigoted viewpoints onto the world. You need travel no farther than Waynesville, North Carolina, where a small Baptist church pastor, Reverend Chan Chandler, dared defy some of the most cherished democratic principles of this nation. Chandler became so undemocratic in his actions that he now has the focus of the U.S.A. and the world on his defiance of democracy.

Are Terrorists Running Free in the U.S.?
Categories :: Bush Administration

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. According to Joel Mowbray’s April 25 article in the New York Post, there are only 18,400 beds for the entire U.S., which is down from 20,000 the previous year.

What is Bush Trying to do Pushing a Hateful Nominee Like Brash Bolton as UN Ambassador?
Categories :: Bush Administration

Why does Bush who claims to be “born again” find himself “wrong gain” in about everything he says or does? The original evaluation for someone like a Bolton to be qualified for a position when he had acted like an attack dog against the UN makes one wonder where George Bush is coming from.

The Biting Irony of Inviting Bush to the New Lincoln Springfield Memorial
Categories :: Bush Administration

Abraham Lincoln is considered by many to be America’s greatest president. George Bush is considered by many to be its worst. Could it be that they invited Bush because they refuse to consider the reality of what the failed president has done to the U.S.A. in 4 years and 3 ½ months?

Categories :: Bush Administration

Pseudo patriots who backed George Bush for president when they knew beyond the shadow of a doubt that he and his terrifying crew had launched a shock and awe lightning strike against Iraq based on the big lie that the U.S. was threatened by non-existent weapons of mass destruction should have to face the consequences of their actions, just as those responsible for those needless deaths should also be held accountable.

Is Bush's Appointment of Carlos Gutierrez, the Kellogg CEO Who Sent Most of the Cereal Company's Jobs to Mexico, a Traitorous Act?
Categories :: Bush Administration

Reading David Broder’s column in the Miami Herald April 12, 2005, I was stunned at his lack of accuracy in his article regarding Bush’s latest scheme, which when closely scrutinized makes the “Tricky Dick” shenanigans of Richard Nixon seem like child’s play.

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?

What About the Charge that Democrats are Bush Bashers?

What about the charge that Democrats are Bush bashers? This is no more than a Republican robot response to any criticism of Bush. Remember what a field day Republicans had bashing Bill Clinton? Republicans seemed to obtain a frenzied delight in lashing out about Clinton’s affairs.

Does President Bush Rank High as a Flim Flam Man?
Categories :: Bush Administration

The question millions of individuals have been forced to confront no matter what side of the party line their embedded in stone political loyalties lie is “Does President Bush rank high as a flim flam man?” Remember when Richard Nixon displayed what a hollow man he was? The Republican right still defends him in their misguided loyalty, which really amounts to a vulgar ego saving device. Bush’s supreme political consultant Karl Rove still considers Richard Nixon his political hero.

It Takes a Lot of Guts for Bush to Chase Around the U.S.A. Claiming he can Solve the So-Called Social Security Crisis
Categories :: Bush Administration

Bush was quoted on the Notebook page of Time on March 14, 2005 at a White House ceremony honoring the Boston Red Sox for winning the 2004 world championship as saying “It took a lot of guts” for the team to rebound from a three games to none deficit against the New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series to triumph in seven games and then go on to win the World Series with four straight victories over the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Cheney-Bush Junta: Global and Domestic Destroyers
Categories :: Bush Administration

The key to destroying any nation begins with the destruction of its currency. Strong nations have strong currencies. The descent of the U.S. dollar happened in the Republican-controlled Administration led by divisive White House resident George Bush. I say “resident” as millions do not believe Bush was legitimately elected either in 2000 or 2004. This Administration has been a continuing nightmare as it lurches from one disaster to another, fantasizing that God is behind their steady pattern of lies and deception.

Bush Propaganda About Social Security is Really About Saving Wall Street
Categories ::

Watch out! Wasn’t the “weapons of mass destruction” scam job enough to cast suspicion on just about anything this Republican Congress suggests? Having made the munitions manufacturers billions in this scam job operation, Bush and his cohorts have never once admitted making any kind of mistake in launching the war against Iraq. Instead once it was proven that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, Bush dramatically launched into a new agenda announcing it had become the U.S. taxpayers’ burden to carry freedom and democracy worldwide. The style of freedom and democracy Bush and Cheney are talking abut is no-bid freedom for their friends at Halliburton and Bechtel to bilk the U.S. taxpayer.

After complaining in such drastic terms about Europe’s refusal to go along with the unproven “fear theory” of the “weapons of mass destruction” high voltage propaganda campaign, George Bush and the robot-like Administration he led to perhaps the largest lie for going to war against a nation in American history, he now speaks of mending fences abroad!

Why The Silence About Condoleezza's Accountability for the Iraq Disaster?

Slimy Democracy U.S.A. Style

When asked about getting Osama bin Laden, who was definitely involved in 9/11, Bush at one point declared, “I don’t even think about him.” On the evening news on October 29, the networks presented the latest bin Laden message to the U.S. Apparently Osama bin Laden was thinking about Bush and the U.S. when he said words to this effect, “The U.S. can prepare for another attack if it doesn’t change its policy toward Israel.”

Bush’s so-called pre-emptive war policy is a return to Stone Age barbarism. The world had advanced, with carefully thought out rules and regulations of when a nation is justified in conducting war. Thoughtful peace loving and intelligent men and women had recognized that every nation should follow certain logical rules and regulations pertaining to the conduct of war, understanding that especially in the atomic and nuclear age, some madman might start the war that could end the world.

Will UFO's Pay Off The Bush Generated $7.4 Trillion National Debt?
Categories :: Bush-Cheney 2004

No way! UFO’s appear in the sky some say, and they are just looking down on us. With a debt like that they won’t come near us, so don’t count on anyone from outer space to bail the U.S.A. out of the debt pit that Bush and this Republican dominated Congress created.

Bush Style Democracy -- Attack All Opposing Views
Categories :: Bush-Cheney 2004

Has democracy in the U.S.A. degenerated to the point where if a Democrat dares mouth a liberal viewpoint he or she is immediately attack by a series of right wing media moguls? Is it the American way to be smeared by corporate robots designated to attack with vicious force a differing view? Can there be no legitimate difference of opinion on crucial issues confronting America? Has the Republican attack machine mobilized to such an extent that true freedom of speech is no longer possible? Are these high salaried down-and-dirty media attack dogs concerned only with maintaining lavish lifestyles at all costs, making greed their God?

Death, Destruction, Debt -- That's The Record Bush is Running On
Categories :: Election 2004

“He can run but he can’t hide,” Bush triumphantly lashes out at Kerry, while Republicans, all handpicked for these photo ops, cheer. Strangely, these are almost the identical words Bush used when lashing out against a former C.I.A. source, Osama bin Laden. Osama bin Laden did run, and sadly successfully did hide when U.S. service personnel in Afghanistan were placed in charge of catching him. They “outsourced” the job to Afghanistan warlords, who until shortly before that had been protecting the international terrorist. He escaped from the caves of Tora Bora and tragically has not been found.

Which is Worse, Clinton's Adultery or Bush's Plunging the U.S. into the Iraq War on False Information?
Categories :: Election 2004

Has the morality of the members of the United States Congress become so twisted that they rate adultery as an impeachable offense? In contrast, is plunging the United States into the horrifying Iraq War and breaking international law acceptable? Is this a matter that does not demand impeachment?

White House Resident George Bush Can Run But He Can Never Hide From What He and his Administration Have Done
Categories :: Bush-Cheney 2004

Are you an accomplice to the Iraq War by continuing to back Bush and his crew – Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz and Richard Perle? If you still believe in this character that told the world a series of falsehoods, from weapons of mass destruction to they’re working with Uranium from Africa, we know that for a fact. Saddam Hussein is threatening the U.S.. The people of Iraq are anxious for us to come and overthrew their government.

Bush's Weapon of Mass Deception
Categories :: Bush Administration

While we have been bombarded with the “weapons of mass destruction” propaganda that struck fear into the hearts of Americans, but got the Iraq War going full steam ahead. Now we know it was all based on lies, but it achieved Bush’s goal of going to war in Iraq.

Any Republican Who Has Witnessed What Bush Has Done to America and Will Still Vote for Him is a Masochist
Categories :: Election 2004

In the first place, let’s get this straight. George Bush is not a traditional Republican conservative. No Republican president ever plunged this nation into the colossal debt he has achieved in four years. No Republican president before him other than the disgraced Nixon and McCarthy equated disagreement with U.S. policy alongside giving aid and comfort to the enemy apart from Bush with his arrogant announcement, “You are either with us or with the terrorists.”

George Bush's Arrogance and Ignorance Flashed Through The Entire Debate
Categories :: Election 2004

What a pathetic display the White House resident George Bush revealed when he appeared on stage with John Kerry in Coral Gables, Florida for their first debate. I was on my debate team in high school, and frankly I don’t think George Bush would have made that group.

It's Bush and the Republicans Who Are Blowing Hot Air
Categories :: Bush-Cheney 2004

It is best for the Bush Administration not to create political humor out of Kerry blowing with the wind as he relaxes. The fact is that this Republican Administration has blown so much hot air that it could be carried in its massive entirety up, up and away.

George Bush's Corporate Democracy
Categories :: Bush-Cheney 2004

What kind of “democracy” are we fighting for in Iraq and Afghanistan? Is it the brand of “democracy” existing in the U.S.A. today? 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 America’s gigantic pharmaceuticals corporations.

Booze and Bush
Categories :: Bush-Cheney 2004

Never before in the history of the United States of America have we had a President who admits he drank heavily until he was 40, as Bush freely admitted in an interview with Barbara Walters. He claimed he quit “cold turkey”, I believe after his “Born Again” claim.

Has the Bush Administration Demolished What the U.S. Has Traditionally Stood For?
Categories :: Bush Administration

The above question must now be debated, and with every good reason. Having insulted, slighted, and alienated major nations of the world in the rush to control the oil fields of Iraq via the false fear threat hurled at the U.S. Congress and the American public, the answer is decidedly yes.

Dumb and Dumber, The Republican Accountability

"They would have waved Osama bin Laden in."
Categories :: Terrorism

The above comment was made by an investigator referring to the fuel farm at Miami International Airport in the July 22 edition of the Miami-Herald. The shocking disclosure related that, just as long as bin Laden was driving a company fuel truck, he would have been welcomed inside. He could have passed freely into a supposedly “secure airport area” where jet fuel by the millions of gallons is stored for the purpose of stealing jet fuel and selling it. The conspiracy was to steal, sell, and make tons of money for the well-organized gang involved. Whatever happened to the much-vaunted Homeland Security Act, which was supposed to protect us all from foreign terrorists? Wasn’t there any thought of how to protect Miami-International Airport from home-grown thieves?

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.?

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.”
