10-17-06 -- BUSH STOLE THE CONSTITUTION
« on: October 18, 2006, 01:43:25 am »

Yes, it's official.  George Bush signed the Military Commissions Act.  In doing so he destroyed the Constitution and undid 200 years of American history.  

Sound crazy?  Sound like hyperbole?

You be the judge: The Military Commissions Act

1) Anyone the President or the Secretary of Defense declares to be an enemy combatant now is one.

2) The right of Habeas Corpus no longer exists.  You no longer have to be told your crime or have the right to know the evidence against you.

3) Torture is acceptable -- even to the point of organ failure.  The torture that is now legal is what we called "war crimes" at the end of World War II -- and imprisoned people who did it.

4) Interpretation of the Geneva Convention is solely up to the President.

5) The Republican controlled Supreme Court has already indicated they won't overturn this legislation.

All 300 Million American people are now, without a doubt, fucked (almost) beyond repair.

What scares me is NOBODY KNOWS!  Ask any American what happened today and they wouldn't know or care about this.

THIS IS THE DARKEST PERIOD IN OUR HISTORY.  NO ONE IS DEMANDING THE REPEAL OF THIS LEGISLATION.  NO ONE IS RIOTING.  NO ONE IS CALLING THEIR SENATOR.  NO ONE FUCKING KNOWS OR CARES.

NOW THAT YOU'VE READ THIS, WHAT WILL YOU DO?  IF IT'S NOTHING, THEN WE ARE FUCKED.

Congress wrote the legislation that Bush told them to.  Then he signed it.  This Congress won't fight him on anything.  And if something is passed in a way he doesn't like, he adds a "signing statement" saying which parts of the legislation he will and won't adhere to.

The justices he appointed won't fight him.  At the moment there aren't three branches of government.

And..

So...

Maybe that's why noone is rioting...

Because you (and you know I love ya) I think are over reacting...

Your numbered points aren't even true.

You can't win people over if you aren't willing to address reality.

Now...

I know you're pissed and I respect that...

But I would argue that our current place in history has almost been a constant since our founding...

With respect to other nations and our continual advance and growth as peeps....

Tik,

I can't be angry with you!

And I'm not angry.  Watch this video.  It is Keith Olbermann (there's a good German name!) of MSNBC (a very legitimate cable organization owned by Microsoft and NBC) talking to a university professor about the ramifications of this signing.  After watching, you'll see it is not my opinion alone, but also those of well-qualified experts.

Best,

Barry

wake up people.

bush and his buddies have been waiting for decades for this.

there was a schoolfriend of bush that mentioned that they were talking about using the loophole in the constitution (when there is a war the president doesn't have to respond to the government 100%).

they were already re-hashing age-old political theories about a war-state providing unlimited power.

unlimited power for the elite to exploit.

think about laws that limit toxic pharmaceutical products..

liability of manufacturers will be tied to their political ties.

no more trouble with public opinion.. the world will become propriety of the ultra-rich and powerful.

think of the implications

the last 100 years have been an exception to the rule. War and exploitation have been the norm for thousands of years.

when those laws get used against AMERICANS it will be too late.

say goodbye to the fundamental legal principle of 'innocent unless PROVEN guilty'.. perhaps the cornerstone of freedom for individuals..

it won't take long before this technical legal principle will be applied to many different laws which extend down into the commonday activities of citizens.

once a law is established, it can be used as a foundation to create other laws based on it's principle.

This is the way wall-street lawyers have been working since the onset of corporate establishment in the late 1800's.

Max,

Thanks for adding these links.  I agree completely.  And as you see, under ten people have taken an interest in this topic.  Either people don't understand the reality of what has happened or they think it to be hyperbole or some liberal fear-cast.

It's in Doonesbury.  It's on some websites.  The Democrats in Congress have yelled this.  And very few people are "getting" it.

I'm amazed.

I think that people are just overwhelmed by all the crap. It's just too much to comprehend or deal with. And most people are desperately trying to keep their heads above water just day to day.

Yeah this is the return of facism big time. Corpratism has always been the root of facism. Going right back to IG Farben. They wrote a lot of Nazi process and procedure because they were the corporation that put the Nazis in power. And Bush's grandfather was there making money off of war as the banker channeling funds from America to the Nazi war machine. It's a family tradition.

If you think this is bad just wait. This is just the begining.

Les ismore, the point you make is something every american should consider.

There are countries full of citizens and taxpayers with their own language, history and identity..way of life..

...then there are people who don't belong to any country, even though they may have residences in many countries or be technically citizens of one or two. People who's only concern is the well-being and growth of their assets and powers.. not tied to ANY country, morals, religion etc.

Hitler was supposedly the illegitimate child of baron Rothschild, who was 'jewish' BTW.

The rothschild family not only had a hand in Hitler's going to power but the Balfour declaration as well.. which is how america got into WWII to DEFEAT Germany..and was the beginning of the problems with the 'holy land'.

so who wins? ... the rich and powerful elite, always.

It's never really about religion or national pride or morals.

The ideological war bush is ranting about is just an excuse to get his way, much as his family and peers have done traditionally for generations..

normal people go to war only when they absolutely need to.. defending from an attack they can see.. politicians, dictators etc. go to war when they find it convenient.. because they are never on the front line.. they are too rich and powerful to die on the field.

sounds stupid and obvious, but it's a huge time-old FUNDAMENTAL difference...

who wants to attack america? some disorganized town of peasants in the middle east, running around with their goats and whatnot? what the hell do they care? it's the political forces that start wars.

The point is to safeguard freedom and promote well-being for the majority of people without resorting to exploitation... not to start screaming 'you're one of them' or behave like hooligans at a soccer match..

in the end the people who earn money are the ones that start the wars.

Guys,

Here are two quote supporting both your points.

Barry

Here's a quote from Abraham Lincoln who saw all this 146 years ago.

"I have the South in front of me and I have the bankers behind me, and for my country I fear the bankers most." - Abraham Lincoln

And here's Hermann Goering, second in command under Hitler.

"Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don't want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.
That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing thecountry to danger. It works the same in any country."

Brough, you're getting older...

Didn't you already quote Goering (my fav nazi)....

Anyhoo...

Just a reminder:  when you compare not holding government types (that will fukk it up anyway) liable to people who ran the death camps you will NEVER get your point across...and always be addressing three people...

The average person who doesn't know how many assholes are in the Senate can clearly see through this non-argument...


I only scanned the threads but will be back tomorrow...

Have to get up @ 4am...

P.S. the most inconvenient thing about the Texas hat rack being that he is right most of the time...

And the idiot Dems are usually wrong...

I think Lewis Black said it best though...

The Republicans are the party of bad ideas and the Democrats are the party of no ideas...

But you, Barry...cannot effect change...

Things would have to be much worse..

Behind every MLK or Ghandi are a lot of people that see a need...

They never compared their antagonists to Hitler...

Not only would it have been the wrong arguement but they would have been reduced to a gang...

Tik,

I'm not comparing Bush to Hitler.  I'm saying the Nazis understood power.  And because Goering did understand power, he was (is) right.

OK if not Goering, how about President James Madison:

1) I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.

2) If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

3) It is a universal truth that the loss of liberty at home is to be charged to the provisions against danger, real or pretended, from abroad.

4) No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.

5) The executive [branch of the government -- my addition] has no right, in any case, to decide the question, whether there is or is not cause for declaring war.

6) The truth is that all men having power ought to be mistrusted.

7) We are right to take alarm at the first experiment upon our liberties.

Try this saying.  Republicans know how to win elections.  They just don't know what to do when they get there.

Social Security reform - no
Osama bin Laden captured or killed - no
Taliban vanquished - no
Al Quaida captured or killed - no
A new Iraqi government successfully installed - no
Saddam Hussein tried and convicted - no
Hurricane Katrina victims helped - no
Hurricane relief fraud eliminated - no
No Child Left Behind  - no
Faith-based initiatives - no
Minimum wage raised - no
Medicare Benefits reduced - yes
Corruption and Greed - yes (Abramoff et. al.)
Pedophilia - yes
Cover up of pedophilia - yes

Shall I go on?  Tik, you know I love ya, but your say so don't make it so.

I don't think you are getting my point.

THE REPUBLICANS SUCK MOOSE COCK!!!!!!!!

Your list may or may not be valid.

Saddam will be at the end of a rope soon.

There have been numerous Al Qauiedaah dick heads killed.

Don't understand the pedophile thing.

Butt...

I think most of what has been accomplished over the last two-hundred years has been by our best and/or brightest, not some jackass politician mismanaging our resources.

I am always taken aback when these dorks in the Whitehouse use the word "I" when referring to our accomplishments.

Fukk, got to roll...

As far as the comments on war profiteering...it's another mantra that some people repeat with giving it any thought.

Maybe it would be better for our boys to throw mud pies at cocksuckers with AK-47's...that way noone would make any money and the world's chil'ren would be safe from American oppression....

I would not be surprised at all if the 'enemy' bush talks about is actually an acquaintance of Bush.. it would make political and historic sense, although I realize it's a tough mouthful to swallow.

Weren't the bin laden people involved with bush senior eons ago?

BY THE WAY... I am checking out the local newspapers and no talk of this issue..

one of the most significant political and LEGAL issues of the last few centuries, and nobody's talking about it..

So it seems it is in the interest of the local politicians to back up bush and his clan as well. We'll find out what is brewing up in a couple of years...

I wonder if there is any talk of this in other countries from a TV/Press point of view.

As you know, much of the media is owned by extremely conservative media barons.  Fox News is the Republican propaganda organization.  Others are heavily attacked by Bush the moment they release anything anti-Bush.  In fact once the Act was signed, Bush *immediately* denounced all those in Congress who did vote for it.

I never imagined this situation would arise in this country.

Do you fellers notice any common thread between Iraqis having more casualties than American casualties in WWII, Korea and Viet Nam combined, the WTC conspiracy, and the President asking for the rules of interrogation to be unambiguous?

Now either there are more Iraqi casualties than every single battle in the American Civil War, the Bush administration planned 9-11 and they want to torture people or....

Some people are getting a little bit carried away...

What do you think?

I actually talked to the Texas hat rack (not from Texas) about what you guys have been going on about and...well...he's not happy about it...

He asked me to say a few words to clear things up here in the PSW Saloon.  Like PSW, the administration continually endeavourizes to focus on the issues.   He was concerned that many of you didn't actually know what his point of view was, since it is impossible to glean it from those smarmy cunts at NPR or that cocky little bitch, Katie Couric.  He feels that you should take all of your cues from the lovely and talented Ann Coulter.  After all, she is much taller and less like a dude.  Her skin does tend to hang off her bones and her face ain’t much and she doesn’t have luscious tits like Couric but overall she’s just more like a woman.  We don’t feel she’s like a woman that just talks a lot and doesn’t really have any practical knowledge and constantly oversteps her bounds.  We mean a woman like a rev’ed up sex machine.  Although, Katie has much better birthing hips, she’s kinda dorky and you can tell when she moves around that there’s nothing going on there.  He justs feel that Ann would be way wilder in the sack.  He likes them skinny actually...and well dressed...preferrabley with Italian boots....

Where were we?


Oh yeah, anyway, it's getting closer to that special day in November.  It is my sincerest desire to see the Dems get stuffed.....again....

Not because they could possibly do worse....

It's just because of all the bullshit the rest of America has to listen to about Hitler and Goeoering and how Bush is injecting prisoners with goat semen or whatever....who wants to hear it...

Now don't get me wrong...

Who wants to support the gay ass GOP...

But there is nothing more entertaining than when the Diebold readout causes that look on peoples faces...

I just laugh myself to sleep at night....

I think it's important that you hear another arugment besides Genie Giraffolo...

lemme nough...

good luck in Nov....

You're so right, the "conservatives" Whatever TF that means, have a lock on the media.  The poor liberals can't get their information out to the people who can really use it!

You're right the Congress passing a bill clarifying what torture is and what it isn't concerning people interrogating terrorists is much more signficant than say....

The invasion of Poland.

Or how many centuries?

A few...

So much more significant legally that the Declaration of Independence...or the Monroe Doctrine...

Bush was elected, but bush is not alone.

Over here in Europe historically and right now there are countries where the politicians simply take turns at being in control while they make decisions as a GROUP to safeguard common interests..

Same thing has happened in the USA, and has been going on for some time..

Bush will be protected and reap his benefits.

the biggest difference perhaps is the level of incompetence at hiding the facts from the bush administration.

Hence the new law: this way all the people who do newscasts will be FORCED to report the truth as BUSH wants it to be known.

Say a news agency reports something which is uncomfortable for bush.. Such as showing murders of children, or political involment with the business in rebuilding of the war zone or financing civil wars etc.

Bush now has the power to threaten the journalists with torture and jail without having to tell anyone...

you DO realize he can't go back and say 'i'm sorry america... I take it all back'

the BUSH administration is already directly responsible for the killing of tens of thousands, if not hundreds..

He is going to be right if it takes the destruction of the Americal legal system and tradition.

If it wasn't for the fact that Internet is protected from government 'filters' many people including myself would not have a clue..

The newspapers are already controlled more or less because of the relationship between politicians and the owners of the media.

if one of those media people behaves in an un-patriotic way by actually showing the truth as it happens, they risk jail or torture.

so goodbye freedom of speech, goodbye to being innocent until proven guilty..

And most taxpaying voting americans are not even aware that they are being screwed.

Well that lasted a measly 200 or so years. It was fun while it lasted I guess. Sounds to me like Bush is trying to take over the world. What's he gonna do when he's out of office? Where is his power then?

Randy,

I hope a Democratic Congress impeaches him before he's out of office.  Then I hope there's a fair trial in which Bush and Cheney are found guilty and go to prison for war crimes.  In the meantime Rumsfeld is fired and retires in disgrace.  With the President and Vice-President out of office, the Speaker of the House becomes President.  That will be Nancy Pelosi.  It may be she becomes the first female President.

I can dream can't I?

Maybe it's not so much a dream, but could become reality. From what I understand people are taking notice, and there are investigations going on. I think this country as a whole is about sic of the corruption, and people are starting to take a stand. The city of Las Vegas is a hot bed right now for this same kinda crap. My dad is seeking a lawyer to sue them, and many others have also. People are being arrested left and right.

Bring down the castle if you ask me...

if the legislation contradicts the constitution then it would either have to be challenged in court, or sent back through as a constitutional amendment in which case it won't pass, since that requires 2/3 vote.

so we should be alright if this actually goes forward, as long as someone challenges it in court.  it is definitely unconstitutional.

Nick,

The Supreme Court has already signaled that they won't overturn this law.

I find this whole issue highly disturbing, and only solidifying what I was already thinking regarding Bush. I've kept saying that once he started preventing his own citizens from talking negatively about the government during the "war" and so forth, the freedom was already lost.

Somehow I'm glad to live where I do, although this thing will probably have a global effect somewhere down the line.

I would like to apologize on behalf of my nation and my president that you are so disturbed.

It must be a huge inconvenience for you...

Let's hope you don't have to break a sweat.

It sucks that I am prevented from speaking out about the "war".

You're right let's hope it doesn't go global, that would suck.

It must be a whole more convenient to type the statements above at the safe distance from USA that you are. Especially considering the fact that you are armed with $4 bottles of wine.

I hope they will last you all winter to keep you warm. Otherwise you may have to cut down those pointy wooden sculptures off your walls and lit up as a bonfire.

It's just that you could be drinking beer for four bucks instead. Think about it.
