"Bush's newest effort to rebuild eroding support for the war in Iraq features a distinct shift in approach: he and his top aides are beginning to lay out the grim consequences of failure." As if that's going to change the outcome! It's just a little late for truth telling. Why would anyone want to send their child to fight in a preemptive unnecessary war? We now know it was "unnecessary," and we know it was the choice of madmen laying the groundwork for world domination. To continue this folly would only support the lies and continue to undermine our freedom and democracy. George Bush is a loser -- always has been, always will be -- and the sooner IMPEACHMENT proceedings begin, the better off we'll be!

Will Fear Strike Out?


Even the Christian Science Monitor, which tends to cover the news with relatively less administration bias than other mainstream papers, couldn’t help falling for the bait, yet again.


I think gun rights people need to recognize that gun control is also as American as venison pie, if you will. Gun regulation is just as American as gun ownership. -- Saul Cornell


Bush "conquers" Afghanistan and it shoots up to become the all-time leader in producing opium, as in more heroin on our streets.

Bush "invades" Iraq and precipitates a civil war and creates a magnet for terrorists, where none had the ability to function before.

Subject: Biggest Threat to America

Even Frank Zappa knew what a danger the Republican Party right-wing is to American Democracy.

Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld are leading America as fascists --
- the merger of the state with the corporation,
- rampant nationalism,
- wars of aggression,
- scapegoating minorities
- control the media, propaganda

video from CROSSFIRE program 1986

"The biggest threat to America today is not communism, it's moving
America toward a fascist theocracy. And everything that's happened
during the Reagan administration is steering us right down that pike."

-- Frank Zappa, "Crossfire," 1986


Veterans and Military Families to Open Camp Democracy September 5th

September 5th in Washington DC will witness the opening of a 17-day event called Camp Democracy, a non-partisan camp for peace, democracy, and the restoration of the rule of law. Camp Casey will move from Crawford , Texas , to Washington, D.C., to create a larger camp focused not only on ending the war but also on righting injustices here at home and on holding accountable the Bush Administration and Congress.

When Iran's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, invited President Bush to engage in a "direct television debate" a few days ago, the White House predictably responded by calling the offer "a diversion." But even though this debate will never happen, it's worth contemplating.

by Dave Lindorff

Impeachment as an issue, and impeachable crimes themselves, get short shrift in the U.S. Media these days.

Back during the Clinton presidency, when the president was being charged with lying about a marital infidelity, a number of major publications were calling for his resignation or impeachment. Now, when the president is openly undermining the fundamental principles of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, starting wars in violation of the Nuremburg Charter, ignoring acts passed by the Congress, and stripping citizens of their right to a trial, not one paper has called for resignation, much less impeachment.
