People for the American Way

Today, Senate Republicans blocked a vote on the restoration of habeas corpus for certain foreign nationals held at Guantanamo Bay and on American soil, allowing the President to continue asserting that he has the right to imprison those suspected of being "enemy combatants" indefinitely, without any means to challenge their detention.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Chafee defection expected, though puzzling to some.  Would that they all become Patriotic Americans rather than Repuglican poodles!  It’s time to stand up for real American values, it’s time to relinquish party affiliation and become true American citizens!

Jim Ridout: George Bush Feigning Success in Iraq

A BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
by Jim Ridout

There has been a lot of talk this past week regarding the feigning policy of George Bush and the report given by General Petreaus. It has rallied the right. Freedom March has begun to run ads that are pro-war, which I believe are a first. Sort of a record breaker for them, to prey upon the misery and loss of families who have lost loved ones to assure them theirs that have departed this earth will be followed by many others if they have their way.

Mortgage defaults continue to soar;
The only closure available is fore.

Cindy Sheehan: At What Price, Safety?

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

I am consistently amazed at things that right-wing nut jobs throw at me to justify their support of an unjustifiable war. Seriously, when you watch Generals, Ambassadors, Senators, Congressmen, and pundits who still cheerlead for a miserable, failed, and murderous policy, you can almost see the skepticism in their eyes, too. They know they are lying for their masters now, if they, like George and Dick, didn't always know they were lying.

"[Palast] said you won the 2004 election - isn't that amazing?
There were multiple reports of disenfranchising of Black voters on the day of the election in 2004 in Florida and Ohio. ... How could you concede the election on the day?"

Amy Branham: Iraq IS About Oil

A BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
By Amy Branham

Alan Greenspan said so in his new book. Iraq is about Oil. Gee, thanks for finally clearing that up! Mighty kind of you, Sir. May I ask, though, why in the hell didn't you come out with this years ago, before the war actually started? You could have done a lot of good, saved hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of lives if you had opened your mouth and told your truths before now.

GOP's Dirty Tricks Begin

Washington, DC--In today's New York Times, Bob Herbert takes a closer look at a Republican sponsored ballot initiative being proposed to change the way California distributes its electoral votes -- a change that the GOP believes would allow them to pick up seats in California and win the White House. This initiative is just more of the GOP's "dirty electoral tricks" by the same national Republican players that funded the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. Herbert says, "This crowd is no more interested in genuine electoral reform than Britney Spears is."
