BuzzFlash,  

Isn't this quote below what people are still asking today about Germany when Hitler spent years building up to his own power and rage that was thrust upon the world? He wasn't able to do it alone.

The Senate is about to pass an intelligence bill that calls for spending $45,000,000,000 (45 billion dollars) a year -- not just once, but year after year -- on intelligence.

New York Times: "2 Ejected From Bush Speech Posed a Threat, Lawyers Say" by Dan Frosch - 4/15/07

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

Headlines proclaim millions of White House/RNC emails have been "lost." But does that mean they have been destroyed forever or are they simply missing? According to the two top Senate Judiciary members, the emails have not mysteriously disappeared but are actively being hidden by the Bush Administration.

George W. Bush and Dick Cheney deceived Congress and the American people into supporting their unlawful invasion of Iraq. Their abuse of power continues. They should be impeached, not for partisan reasons, but to maintain our constitutional system and to deter future leaders from abusing power.

One of the original intentions of Media Matters (the Rev. Al Sharpton, et al who demanded the firing of Don Imus for making his totally indefensible racist remarks) was to initiate a "national conversation on race and racism." Race and racism have driven this country since the first slave was landed on these shores in 1620. They have caused/provided for, among other things: major fault lines in both our statement of national purpose; the Declaration of Independence; and our prescription for national government; the Constitution; our first Civil War; huge economic, social, and political inequalities in our society; the major political underpinnings for both political parties at different times in our history (since the invention of the Nixonian "Southern Strategy," it has been primarily the property of the Republicans). Yes, indeed that "national conversation" is desperately needed if we are to survive as a Constitutional Democracy.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

"Private attorney Robert Luskin denied that Rove intentionally deleted his own e-mails from a Republican-sponsored computer system. He said President Bush's political adviser believed the communications were being preserved in accordance with the law." Yeah, sure, and pigs fly in August too!!! It's amazing how "I don't recall, I can't remember, I didn't know, I believed, I thought" always seem to come up when these guys are caught up to their necks in a multitude of illegal activities! I seem to remember hearing somewhere that "ignorance of the law does not excuse"! Besides, the grapevine has it, Rove is not now and never has been uninformed! "Plausible deniability" has run out!!!

"I want to make some fundamental points abundantly clear."
(Isn't it absolutely amazing and astonishing that I'm still here?)
