BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

On this the eve of All Souls Day, with all the "tricks" and no treats coming out of the Bush administration, we are living a constant negative state of Halloween! HAPPY HALLOWEEN! 

* * * 

"As the Nuremberg Tribunal concluded after World War II: ‘War is essentially an evil thing ... To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime, it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.' If the U.S. had a genuinely open media, there would be a ferocious debate raging about how to deal with the fact that Washington initiated a war of aggression that has resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands -- possibly hundreds of thousands -- of Iraqis, and almost 3,000 Americans. U.S. troops should be removed now." George Bush isn't just campaigning for a Repuglican majority in Congress, or for "freedom and democracy" in Iraq; he is fighting for his personal "freedom," because he knows what he has done!!!

More proof George Bush is running America in the same vein as Ken Lay ran Enron: "GAO chief warns economic disaster looms," and Bush, as Lay, will walk away with millions! George Bush, like Ken Lay before him, is still touting financial liquidity and encouraging investment, when in reality we, the American people, like the Enron employees and stockholders, are going to end up with absolutely nothing, completely bankrupt! "Enron's fall wiped out $60 billion in stockholder value and $2 billion in pension funds that were supposed to go to the company's employees and retirees." Not to worry, though, George has that ranch down in Paraguay for his escape!!!

What's that old saying -- "People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones" -- or was it "people who accept money from pornographic film producers shouldn't cast aspersions on others"? "... it seems there is plenty of porn movie producer money to go around. It turns out that the Republican National Committee is a regular recipient of political contributions from Nicholas T. Boyias, the owner and CEO of Marina Pacific Distributors, one of the largest producers and distributors of gay porn in the United States."

George Bush, Karen Hughes, and this whole group of backward leaning, "Leave it to Beaver, delusional lunatics are stuck in a fantasy world of their own creation! Unfortunately, they want the rest of the world to join them! When will they realize the token offerings, the "strategeries" that worked for them here in America, ain't gonna cut it in Iraq?

Those who are racist would like everyone to believe they are not, but at "the end of the day," the "truth of the matter" is that racism is alive and thriving in these United States, especially among the Repuglicans! They try to pretend they are an all-encompassing political party. Don't kid yourself; don't fall for that "all inclusive" rhetoric because that "big tent" they're pitching has the stench of an entrenched bigotry that hasn't gone away in over 200 years!

Way back then, "Southern newspapers and Jerry Falwell's publications are already printing editorials proclaiming AIDS as God's deserved punishment on homosexuals." Some of the same people back then are the ones against embryonic stem cell research today! They were wrong then and they are wrong now!!!

Now what's a president to do after he's waged a preemptive, unnecessary, illegal war and the public is getting close to finding out? He'll declare "martial law" that's what! And the coup will then be complete. To all those who thought 2008 would bring an end to the lunacy at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., think again, because George Bush is stealthily building that dictatorship he so desired, executive order by executive order, law by law! "Bush Moves Toward Martial Law ... In a stealth maneuver, President Bush has signed into law a provision which, according to Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont), will actually encourage the President to declare federal martial law (1). Public Law 109-364, or the ‘John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007' (H.R.51222) (2), which was signed by the commander in chief on October 17th, 2006, in a private Oval Office ceremony, allows the President to declare a ‘public emergency' and station troops anywhere in America and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities, in order to ‘suppress public disorder.' President Bush seized this unprecedented power on the very same day that he signed the equally odious Military Commissions Act of 2006. In a sense, the two laws complement one another. One allows for torture and detention abroad, while the other seeks to enforce acquiescence at home, preparing to order the military onto the streets of America. Remember the term for putting an area under military law enforcement control is precise; the term is ‘martial law'." Since this is obviously the Repuglican version of "freedom and democracy," I'd much rather the Democratic version any day! Vote Democratic on November 7!
