CNN Anchor Slams Impeachment As Kabuki Theatre

In Studio Anchor

Those familiar with cable news television understand that several programs – even entire networks – broadcast from a particular bias. Keith Olbermann’s COUNTDOWN on MSNBC is left leaning, as is Dan Abrams’ VERDICT. Olbermann has become famous for his highly crafted “Special Comments” which take aim at conservatives from George W. Bush to Rudolf Giuliani. [...]

Why John McCain’s “Surge” Success Story Is A Lie

Joe Palermo

It really makes the Iraq debate easy for John McCain when he throws around words like “win” and “victory” and “prevail” and “success” without really defining what they mean. A short time ago he was calling for American troops to remain in Iraq forever and that Obama was “naive” for suggesting otherwise. Now that the [...]

No Bush, No Baker, No Corporate War Maker!

by Linda Milazzo — Some men sacrificed their sons for their nation. George Herbert Walker Bush sacrificed his nation for his son.

Pelosi Secures Her “BUT”

Nancy Pelosi

Yesterday on CNN’s Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, Democratic Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, responded to a viewer who asked why she took the impeachment of George W. Bush off the table. Pelosi’s response (below in video and text), is categoric proof of her incompetence, dereliction of duty, disdain for the Constitution, and disregard [...]

Wiretap Me Baby

Inspector Bush

Psst! Hey you! Warrantless-Wiretapper: Let me save you some time and money eavesdropping on me. Here’s the content of most of my calls: I talk to my friends a lot, mostly about the same things over and over. We feel fat. We wonder how to get skinnier, younger and less broke. We want hot, smart, [...]

What’s Up with the Democratic Congress?

by Jack A. Smith — During the month of June the Democratic-controlled Congress in the U.S. voted to fund the Iraq war deep into next year, to support a compromise version of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) that endangers civil liberties, and, in effect, eliminated the possibility of impeaching President George W. Bush.

The Sacred McCow

John McCain Nope

I guess this is proof, after a fashion, that the war has indeed followed us home. Some of our leading veterans-turned-political-warriors, from John McCain to Wesley Clark and Jim Webb, and even a fresh-outta-mothballs Swiftboater seem to have decided that – never mind “fighting ‘em over there” – the order of the day really is [...]

Indicting Bush in Venice

George "Smirking Monkey" Bush

Where else but Venice, California, would you go to hear an outraged crank argue for indicting the sitting president of the United States for murder in a gymnasium packed to the gills with wild-eyed radicals cheering his every charge? Which is exactly what we did this past Wednesday, except the crank was no crank, but [...]

Momentum Building For Bugliosi’s Case Against George W. Bush For Murder

Vincent Bugliosi

For Vincent Bugliosi, one of America ‘s foremost prosecutors and authors, George W. Bush’s purposeful crime of misleading America into war is a vile, despicable and prosecutable act. It angers Bugliosi deeply. So much so that he’s written a new book, The Prosecution Of George W. Bush For Murder. To be clear, this is not [...]

Fiction Is No Stranger to What They Call Truth at Bush & Company

Cawabunga

Bush and Company lives for and thrives on lies and disaster. They have proven their fiction is a stranger to the truth. The greater the disaster, the greater the potential for Republican profit, greed, and corruption. Herr Rove learned from Joe Goebbels, that by using fiction to become GOP truth, he could find ways to [...]

The Great Writ Preserved

William Watkins

In Boumediene v. Bush, the Supreme Court gave the Bush administration a black eye in its controversial war-on-terrorism policies. The Court held that the Guantanamo detainees have a right to pursue habeas corpus challenges to their detention. The alternative procedures to habeas review crafted by the government under the Detainee Treatment Act of 2005, the [...]

A Call to Heroes: My “Sit-Down” with Vince Bugliosi

Vincent Bugliosi

There are adjectives that come to mind when describing famed former prosecutor and renowned author, Vincent Bugliosi, who for 40 years has set the standard for prosecutorial skill in America. Some are intrepid, brave, independent, brilliant, driven, indomitable, respected, focused, relentless, and confident. Each fits perfectly well.

Voter Suppression Is the GOP Bottom Li(n)e

Voting Wave

Is it preposterous or inconceivable that the Republican dirty tricks machine suppressed five to ten million votes in recent national elections? Nobody knows except maybe the Rove/Poindexter data system. When the corporatist media sometimes mentions Republican ‘dirty tricks,’ the inference is their machinations are benign and not to be regarded as a serious matter. The [...]

Voters First: The Party Political Leaders Are Wrong

Voters First California

In the election of 1988 Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis felt that a grassroots, door-to-door campaign by thousands of volunteers was the way to win the election. After the Democratic convention he actually was leading in the polls. The Democratic Party political leaders knew this was not the way to win. What Dukakis had to [...]

Hasta La Vista, U.S. Business

Bridges not Walls

Question: Has Bush & Company, unintentionally helped solve the U.S. immigration problem across our Mexican border? With no thought about consequences for future American business or our country’s citizens, George W. Bush and mostly Republicans, may have precipitated the extinction of the trade mark, “Made in USA,” to be replaced with “Hecho en Mexico,” along [...]

Who the Hell is Voting for McCain?

Bush and McCain embrace

I thought the best thing John McCain did when he first became the “presumptive Republican nominee” for President was attaching himself to George W. Bush like some bizarre reversal of a Siamese twin separation operation. I mean how stupid is that? Bush is almost inarguably the worst President we have ever had. I say almost [...]

Worse Than Any Impeachable Offense

Nancy Pelosi

I would never have thought there’d be any greater crimes than those of George W. Bush, nor any villain greater. I’m wrong. And no, it’s not Dick Cheney, either, or anything he’s perpetrated. Nor any of their colleagues. It’s Nancy Pelosi, and her colleagues, and what they seem quite literally hell-bent on doing. Why at [...]

Mr Russert – Will YOU Ante up for War Victims Like YOU Asked of Scott McClellan?

Tim Russert

Mr. Russert, last Sunday (June 1, 2008), on “Meet The Press” you had as your guest former George W. Bush Press Secretary Scott McClellan. You asked him the following question: “Some have suggested because you were part of the propaganda machine that sold the war, that many people have died and been injured because of [...]

Hillary Clinton The Lovely Parting Gift

Barack and Hillary

I woke up one morning feeling like I’d awakened in a different country. Sort of. Barack Obama’s passing the numerical finish line was still not quite the end of the Democratic primary season. “She” had yet to concede. It should have been All-Obama-All-the-Time, but it wasn’t. Very well, then. He’s handled this turn of events [...]

The “I Didn’t Do It” Letter

George Bush and Andrew McClellan

Scott McClellan’s new confessional that’s pointed the finger at Bush administration figures in the Valerie Plame scandal reminds me of something my husband got in the mail, in the autumn of 1983. We called it the “I Didn’t Do It” letter. It arrived unexpectedly one afternoon from the offices of gold trader Alan Saxon, the [...]

The Bushes and Hitler’s Appeasement

Borah

The irony of George W. Bush going before the Knesset and mocking the late Sen. William Borah (pictured here) for expressing surprise at Adolf Hitler’s 1939 invasion of Poland is that Bush’s own family played a much bigger role assisting the Nazis. If Borah, an isolationist Republican from Idaho, sounded naïve saying “Lord, if only [...]

Hillary Clinton A Warrior For Another Time

Hillary Clinton

Ever since this campaign downshifted into high gear, I’ve been wishing it was like some sort of Time Traveler’s Checkerboard. If we could plug some dynamics of this year into 2000, or 2004, imagine how much less glum we’d all be now, as Americans, and how much less grim our circumstances would be. I’ve watched [...]

The Obama Campaign Maybe We Can!

Henry Vandermeir

The 150 Democratic Party activists who gathered for the 56th Annual California Democratic Council convention this past weekend in Fresno certainly had sky-high hopes about their party’s chances in the November elections—but they had their fingers crossed behind their backs, as well. The woeful George W. Bush Administration—certainly the worst in living memory with its [...]

When “Oops” ISN’T Enough

Bush Cartoon Railroad Tracks

Erich Segal, the author of “Love Story,” once put the phrase “Love means never having to say you’re sorry” into the official collection of favorite American catch-phrases. Up until very recently, we’ve had to suffer under a latter-day perversion of that: “The ‘War on Terror’ means never having to say you’re sorry.” Now, however, comes [...]

Why We Support Barack Obama

Franklin Roosevelt, Barack Obama, John Kennedy

America needs a Democrat in the White House who can transform our country for years to come the way Franklin Delano Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy once did. We believe Barack Obama can best unite, inspire, and transform America and here’s why. Since the advent of Ronald Reagan’s “Smell the Coffee” Administration nearly three decades [...]
