Bush, part I

Bush still speaking, but here's an early story.

This story doesn't seem to be sparking any interest either. It's almost as though NOBODY wants to here anything about Bush anymore.

maybe we can do the fox news things and talk about blondes in trouble instead of real things like republican corruption and fascism.

Why would anyone want to hear anything that lying, demagoguing chimp has to say? Oh wait, the 19 percent dead enders would, of course!

Might want to be careful about using the term "fascism." Of course all you do is throw out insults and one-liners without any thought or support. It is alot easier to just use one liners over and over and blame Fox News than actually do some research or write something with thought and meaning. My guess is that you don't like Fox News because they actually express a point of view you don't like. Hey you have your choice of alot of networks that lean to the left so quit your crying and watch something else.

To Anon at 1:07 AM,

Here is a link to a 48 minute video lecture by author Naomi Wolf regarding her latest book entitled "The End of America:Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot.

Link: http://tinyurl.com/3ydajh

I can't recommend this video and it's contents highly enough. Ms. Wolf has done extensive research into the growing move towards fascism in modern american government and society.

Please take the time to view this enlightening lecture and pay close attention to the 10 steps to fascism.

Fox news is about as worthy of discussion as the National Enquirer and Britney Spears. It's sensationalistic crap at best which is presented by uneducated, uninformed plastic camera performers who where it not for Fox News they would certianly be unemployed. When 70% Americans are getting there news from other sources that leaves a very dangerous 30% of misinformed viewers being directed by a station whose directive is just as dangerous as a simple minded terorist.

heres what bush tells us:

Bush: Success in Iraq 'is real'

here's what he hides in a classified memo:

A classified memo written by a top military official stationed in Western Iraq reveals that a prison in downtown Fallujah is so overcrowded and dirty that it does not even meet basic “minimal levels of hygiene for human beings.”

“The conditions in these jails are so bad that I think we need to do the right thing in terms of caring for the prisoners even with our own dollars, or release them,” says the memo, written late last month by Maj. Gen. John Kelly, commander of U.S forces in western Iraq.

The classified document, leaked to the website Wikileaks, a website where whistleblowers can “reveal unethical behavior in their governments and corporations,” was authenticated by the organization.

The memo contains other shocking revelations about conditions at the jail, including a massive shortage of food and water. The prison is said to be run by Iraqi officials. US Marines oversee operation of the facility.

“I found the conditions there to be exactly (unbelivable [sic] over crowding, total lack of anything approaching even minimal levels of hygiene for human beings, no food, little water, no ventilation) to those described in the recent (18 February) FOX news artickle [sic] by Michael Totten entitled the “Dungeon of Fallujah.,” says Kelly’s memo click here “We need to go to general quarters on this issue right now… To state that the current system is broken would erroneously imply that there is a system in place to be broken.”

must be a great day to be a republican

The Bush administration has lied about the events and prior knowledge of 9/11, lied at WMD's, lied about wiretapping americans PRIOR TO 9/11, lied about those involved in Abu Ghraib, lied about secret CIA prisons, lied about the torture memos, lied about buying off reporters to write favorable stories about their programs etc., etc., etc. I'm sure they couldn't care less about intolerable prison living conditions. These criminals need to be indicted, tried, found guilty and incarcerated NOW!

John Kerry, John Edwards, and Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton have lied about the events and prior knowledge of 9/11, lied at WMD's.....but I'm proud to have supported them all these years.

Another cowardly poster uses my username "Tired of the Lies" (see above reference regarding Kerry, Edwards and Hillary) because they cannot address the true realities of this disasterous Bush/Republican presidency.

Isn't that just like a Republican/Neocon? They cannot defend their candidates so they must resort to sleazy, underhanded, cowardly tactics?

BTW, I agree with you about Kerry, Edwards and Hillary and their comments regarding 9/11. SHOCKED? I want the truth about 9/11. We have a definite coverup on both sides of the aisle. I'm a liberal, but I'm an american first. We need a new, thorough and 'independent' investigation. Support the 9/11 victims families in their push for a new investigation.

See what military personnel, CIA analysts, government officials (Republican and Democrat), scientists, engineers, architects and many others say about 9/11 at www.PatriotsQuestion911.com.

The 9/11 Tuth Movement is international in it's scope. This is NOT going away.

i think the weak link in the chain is the option puts on the airline stocks that were bought a few days before 9/11. kuccinich has promised to open an investigation into them but has not done so as of now. the word on the internets is that there is more than a casual tie to some very senior cia officials...

Anon at 9:41,

The link to the CIA official that I am familar is with A.B. Buzzy Krongard.

From article:
Another article notes that Deutsche Bank Alex Brown, the American investment banking arm of German giant Deutsche Bank, purchased at least some of these options. Deutsche Bank Alex Brown was once headed by “Buzzy” Krongard, who quit that company in March 2001 and became Executive Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). “This fact may not be significant. And then again, it may. After all, there has traditionally been a close link between the CIA, big banks, and the brokerage business.”
SOURCE: Business Line 2/11/2003
Another interesting Krongard story:

Brother of State Dept. Official Linked to Blackwater.
Nov. 14, 2007

In a dramatic turn of events on Capitol Hill today, the State Department inspector general recused himself from all Blackwater-related issues after admitting to Congress that his brother served on the private security contractor's advisory board.

(ABCNEWS)After initially rejecting allegations that his brother, Alvin "Buzzy" Krongard, was a Blackwater board member, Howard Krongard later told lawmakers that his brother was in fact on the board.
