BUZZFLASH MAILBAG

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

"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.

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.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZ

Ah the lies from the mouths of morons: George W. Bush said, "Nobody has ever suggested in this administration that Saddam Hussein ordered the 9/11 terrorist attacks"! The facts speak otherwise. Bush said, on Oct. 7, 2002, "We know that Iraq and the al-Qaeda terrorist network share a common enemy - the United States of America. We know that Iraq and al-Qaeda have had high-level contacts that go back a decade... We've learned that Iraq has trained al-Qaeda members in bomb-making and poisons and deadly gases." In Bush's 2003 State of the Union address, he said, "And this Congress and the American people must recognize another threat. Evidence from intelligence sources, secret communications, and statements by people now in custody reveal that Saddam Hussein aids and protects terrorists, including members of al-Qaeda." On May 1, 2003, Bush said, "In the war on terror, Iraq is now the central front." Hmmm, perhaps it depends on what the meaning of "suggested" means, because they damn sure implied Hussein was involved!

Cindy Sheehan: Obligations

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

I bought land in Crawford, Tx to conduct our Camp Caseys until the horrendous nightmare of an occupation ends in Iraq or/and until our world no longer has to suffer under the Bush Regime. But our land will also be a permanent place for peace and as a bastion of hope and refuge for soldiers whether they want to be in the military or not.

A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL

Many a website, including BuzzFlash, has often quoted none other than Nazi leader Hermann Goering. Here is how an American Army interviewer recounts a conversation with Goering, as the latter awaited trial at Nuremberg:
