Republican nominees show there's no need to cater to minorities or average Americans as Bush's abusive power is not in danger!

Tuesday I did a story in regards to Hillary Clinton's possible nomination. In it I included information on a story from a very concerned up to snuff citizen and a list of the top 25 censored stories of 2008. I pointed out stories #1 which abolishes Habeus Corpus for any person and not just suspected terrorists, and #2 which moves Bush towards martial law. In effect it repeals the Posse Comitatus Act, which placed strict prohibitions on military involvement in domestic law enforcement.
Just think about those 2 implications alone! Below are the 2 links I sincerely hope you look at. I am republishing them because I noticed last time that there were many comments joking about these very real concerns for all of us, without once checking the well researched facts and laws passed by Bush. I had to assume that anybody but a Bush pundit would be greatly concerned about the loss of basic rghts and protections so the commenters must have been trolls.

First anon paranoid from America Weeps wrote a great piece on the very abused awesome powers the President now has as a direct consequence of 9/11 and The Patriot act, all by the design of Bush's deceptive underhanded Politics. This deserves your attention

As you read what he has put together you must already realize Bush can not allow this excessive power in the hands of Democrats and if you need further proof please look at this frightening list of the top 25 censored of 2008. They are very frightening and sobering. Pay particular attention to #1 and #2 Bush will not relinquish this and can not!

With what I would consider as inexcusable behavior by the top Republican Presidential nominees my concerns are validated. First A Republican debate on Univision, the Spanish-language television network, was canceled this month because Mr. McCain was the only leading candidate to agree to attend. (The top Democratic candidates, by contrast, did debate on the network.)
The decision to skip the forum last nght was criticized in an editorial in The Washington Times, a conservative-leaning newspaper, that said, “It is striking that the Republican front-runners believe that some run-of-the mill fund-raiser is more important than building up their relationships with black and Hispanic voters, groups who flock to the Democratic Party in droves.” You would think that would be a concern unless there is no concern for the loss of corruptive Republican power!

The four no-shows -- former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Sen. Fred Thompson, Arizona Sen. John McCain and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney -- cited scheduling conflicts in saying they could not attend the debate at historically black Morgan State University. They had months prior notice, if they cared they would have made the adjustments. They routinely do it all the time. There is no excuse beyond lack of concern. They have no concern for average Americans or for the loss of the corruptive massive power Bush has gained. will there even be elections?
GOP candidates skip debate

Like Anon I fully expect elections to be cancelled in 2008 and martial law declared, and so will you if you read the last 2 links. It is in Bush's awesome abused power to declare martial law if he sees a danger to his Government and we are the danger. At the very least I expect Bush to attack Iran before Congress can stop him and will call for a Constitutional Amendment calling for Bush to stay in office indefinitely too stay at the helm of his wars.

Anyway you look at it 2008 is going to be hell and I am not just talking the election. Bush will guarantee it one way or the other. In closing I just want to say I really hope you looked at the 2nd and 3rd links! Republicans can not let their awesome corruptive powers in Democratic hands.

Here is a clear picture of lessons learned, or not learned with Hillary's recent vote on attacking Iran:

I voted for this war in Iraq, and I was wrong to vote for this war. And I accept responsibility for that. Senator Clinton also voted for this war.

We learned a very different lesson from that. I have no intention of giving George Bush the authority to take the first step on a road to war with Iran.

And I think that vote today, which Senator Biden and Senator Dodd voted against, and they were correct to vote against it, is a clear indication of the approach that all of us would take with the situation in Iran because what I learned in my vote on Iraq was you cannot give this president the authority and you can't even give him the first step in that authority because he cannot be trusted.

I am so sick of the Political parsing crap. It doesn't matter. I do not understand anyone giving Bush the okay. It was obvious to a total idiot that Bush was lying from the beginning.
They should all pay. However the damage is done, it will not be undone, and the entire middle east will be engulfed in Bush's forever war before it spreads throughout the world.
I really am disgusted as it is obvious that this a business decision and the defense industry is doing well and it will be doing better as the wars Bush purposely set in motion, progress. If China dumps us where will the trillions come from or will that be our downfall?

Larry said...


This is a business decision and while millions of U.S jobs are sent overseas, the Military Industrial Complex is thriving and growing under Bush.

Here is another reason they are pushing war with Iran:

From the Asian Times, regarding the passage of the Kyl-Liberman amendment:

But its huge margin of approval, which some observers said was boosted by this week’s controversial visit to New York by Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad, helped demonstrate once again how responsive members of both major parties are to the so-called “Israel lobby”, which has made the sanctions bill its top legislative priority this year.
Rabbi Michael Lerner has a long article regarding Israel Lobbyists and their influence on the U.S. congress. From the article:

To take an example from these past few months of the Israel Lobby exercising its power, liberals in the House of Representatives in the spring of 2007 sought to include in the defense-funding budget an amendment that would require specific authorization from Congress before the Administration could use the defense budget monies for a military strike at Iran. The amendment failed. Most liberals in the U.S. today oppose preventive wars in general and a military strike against Iran in particular. So who supports such a move? The answer is: the right wing government of Israel and its champion in the U.S., the Israel Lobby.

At the meeting I was at, every Member of Congress tried to explain why Nancy Pelosi would never let me address the Democratic Caucus of the House (at that time, the minority caucus): House Democrats are too fearful of what AIPAC might do in response. I told these Members of Congress that I didn’t believe them; that I thought that House of Representative liberals were just pretending to be fearful of AIPAC in order to avoid a battle and stand up publicly for Tikkun’s middle path position. But then they began to tell me specific stories from their own experience of the threats they had received from the Israel Lobby people about being labeled as “anti-Israel.” They told me stories of it being impossible to convene a private meeting of Democrats who would want to challenge the Israel Lobby because when they had tried that they had found that every name of the attendees was in the hands of AIPAC lobbyists within an hour of the conclusion of that meeting and many of the attendees had been subject to immediate and intense pressure as though they had decided to abandon Israel (which they had not, nor is that what Tikkun calls for).

It is no surprise but you know I agree with you there too. I just said that here or at Lydia's. hell they say it is all about oil but I think it is all about the money as the chief idiot sinks us in the process.With trillions in future debt coming for us the defense industry will be golden.

an average patriot said...

The power of the Israel lobby sickens me. I am sickened at the degree to which Senators come to their defense. They strike me as being warmongers just like Bush. I absolutely abhore the way this is unfolding and we are powerless to stop it. This is all proceeding unerhandedly.

Dusty said...

God it is ALL so sickening..and depressing. I have had a hard time lately not being overwhelmed by all the bs.

Good post Jim..thank you.

Anon-Paranoid said...

Left you a response on my sight.

Good post.

God Bless.

Chuck said...

That "Project Censored" link was a good one. Thanks for linking to that Jim. I had already read Anon's entry. Scary stuff.

an average patriot said...

I know, I'm sorry! I know it can be overwhelming but you can't let it bother you. You have to keep trying to make a difference of course bu you have to realize we are not even players. We are observers and will have to be the ones to try and hold things together but otherwise we do not matter.

an average patriot said...

Alright! I'll be over. Just want to respond to Chuck.

an average patriot said...

That censored stories item came from Larry. It should be very disconcerting to anyone that is not an advocate of Bush's new societal and world order.
I have had many problems in the past getting the people at kos to see what is going on and take it seriously but they just do not.
The first time I published Anon's story and the censored list many at kos make jokes about it and never looked at the links. It bothered Anon.
This time I republished them with the story you read and accused those people of being trolls. I guess I was right because at last check I had a recommend but no comments so that's good.

Dear Jim,

I assure you that the anonymous commentator on Naj's is Naj herself.

she is imitating my linguistic and spelling mistakes,so as to make those stupid comments sould like they were. The reasoning she is using is similar to mine, one way or another, however it is full of fallacies.It is more like the way she wishes I would have argued

Honestly speaking I stopped sending comments to her site. She only swiched the moderation feature, after I had started to divert attention of the readers through my arguments towards the Iranian regime hypocracy and the myth of an ancient Persian culture
that never existed.

A typical "Iranian" attidude"

By the way I left a comment on her blog just now, asking her to enlighten us about the 7000 years persian culture heeeee

Amre El-Abyad said...

I wrote you this comment, mainly because I respect you. And I want to continue the constructive dialogue we have been having

an average patriot said...

You are funny! I am impartial and I will throw something out and let the reader use their own mind. What I think is my problem and I would never interject that on someone else.
My suggestion to her was that she knows in her own mind and it doesn't matter so don't worry about it. As for our dialogue, I cherish it and do not want to jeopordize it.
Speaking of that, I sent Naj a link to a story on Iran on the brink that is on tonight here and maybe you can watch it as I am sure you care and have your opinion too.
Amre I had a link to you and something happened to it. If I can regain it I will send you the link to that story otherwise it is in my last comment to naj.

an average patriot said...

I don't know what happened but all of a sudden when I try to access your site I can't and I get a message saying Blogger unavailable.

Amre El-Abyad said...

I have been hacked and bugged heeeee

an average patriot said...

You're funny! I wouldn't doubt anything anymore. I am putting something together right now that's getting more ineresting but anyway I just clicked on your name and it said "unavailable" Is that by choice? If not how to I get your site?
Check this out if you can. Iran the ticking time Bomb
