More Bush Administration Arrogance

ALL THE NEWS THAT’S UNFIT TO PRINT, EPISODE 3

Hot off the presses…the latest edition of RFK Jr’s “Unearthed” column, for the week ending May 9, 2008.

Here Kennedy covers a vast array of subjects – everything from the Siegleman case to Cheney and Ashcroft’s refusal to testify about U.S. torture tactics; from the head of the EPA being fired for political purposes to depleted uranium being dumped in Idaho; from hundreds of dead ducks turning up in Canada to right-wing talk radio’s domination of the U.S. airwaves; from the oil crisis to American contractors quite literally making out like bandits in Iraq — all with one common thread, the central underlying theme which ties these stories together:

More unprecedented ARROGANCE from the Bush Administration!

In a mad dash to cover their tracks while scooping up all the spoils they can possibly grab before we kick them out of the White House next January, the Bushies seem to be wholly unconcerned with how things look or smell at this point. (A new poll shows that Bush is now the most unpopular president in history, but ask him if he cares.) Yes, they’re openly farting in our faces, and we’re supposed to love it.

Laughing all the way to the bank, these criminals now feel certain that they will never face prosecution or impeachment, so hey – why not take all they can get? After all, we’ve given them a pass, carte blanche’ and a blank check for the past seven years, turning a blind eye to their crimes against humanity. (And that’s not to mention those High Crimes and Misdemeanors.)

So put on your seat belts and gas masks, America. The ride is only going to get rougher and smellier as Bush’s clock runs out.

Did you ever feel like the proverbial frog in a pot of boiling water as the heat is slowly being turned up hotter and hotter? Well, you know what happens then, don’t you?

We must take a stand. We must stop them before they kill again (looks like you’re next, Iran). We must fight back. We must prosecute. We must stop taking “I don’t recall” for an answer. Because if we don’t, we could all wind up as dead as those Canadian ducks RFK Jr. writes about.

It may be too late to impeach (as our Democratic brethren continue to insist) now, but it’s never too late to try them for war crimes at the Hague.

Oh…and there’s no statute of limitations on murder, either.

NEWS OF THE WEEK THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA FORGOT TO REPORT

by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Brendan De Melle

The Huffington Post

EPA Official Ousted For Offending Dow Chemical

At the request of Dow Chemical, the Bush administration forced out one of its own hand-picked EPA regulators on May 1st because she naively attempted to do her job by enforcing the law against Dow. EPA officials told Mary Gade, the federal agency’s top Midwest regulator to step down from her post or be fired by June 1. Bush appointed Gade in 2006, but Gade ran afoul of the White House when she pressured Dow Chemical to clean up dioxin pollution extending 50 miles downstream from the company’s Michigan headquarters. Dow asked EPA headquarters to intervene. In response EPA chief Stephen Johnson’s top deputies repeatedly grilled Gade about the case. When she refused to lay off Dow, they stripped her of her authority and told her to quit or be fired. “There is no question this is about Dow,” Gade said. “I stand behind what I did and what my staff did. I’m proud of what we did.”

Gade was formerly a loyal George W. Bush supporter and adviser. In 2000, she praised then-governor and candidate Bush for his “fresh approach” and “strong leadership.” But her loyalty couldn’t shield her from an administration bent on insulating its chemical industry cronies from public health laws.
Bush’s Misleading Claims About the Arctic Refuge Denied by Federal Officials

President Bush last week repeated his claim that if only Congress had approved his 2002 plan to drill for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge it “would likely mean lower gas prices” today. However, oil industry experts and Bush’s own Energy Department officials say that Bush is greatly exaggerating the theoretical impact that opening the refuge would’ve had on current gas prices. They explained that it takes over a decade to find and develop a new oil field. Furthermore, the oil available in ANWR — even under the most optimistic projections — could supply less than 2% of U.S. demand, an amount that would have a negligible impact on prices at the pump.
Green Construction Could Drastically Slash North American Energy Dependence

Employing existing and emerging green construction practices could cut North America’s deadly fossil fuel dependence faster and more cost-effectively than any other measure, according to a new study by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation, a panel erected by the United States, Canada and Mexico. Green construction has immediate paybacks, including “reduced energy costs and water costs as well the indoor health environment and increased productivity of the inhabitants of those buildings,” according to John Westeinde, an advisor on the report. The report found that North America’s buildings release more than 2,200 megatons of CO2, or about 35 percent of the continent’s total. If the construction industry rapidly adopted current and emerging green technologies, that number could be cut by 1,700 megatons by 2030, the report found.
Hundreds of Ducks Die at Canadian Oil Sands Mine

Hundreds of ducks made a fatal landing recently in a tailings pond filled with a witch’s brew of oil and toxic sludge at a northern Alberta tar sands mine. Regulators are investigating why Syncrude Canada — the country’s largest tar sands producer — failed to deploy a system designed to scare off waterfowl. Alberta’s tar sands development has been heavily criticized for huge carbon dioxide emissions, destruction of the boreal forest, and the potential for tailing ponds to contaminate local rivers and waterways.

 
Feds Acknowledge Error On Attempts to Muzzle Siegelman

Former Alabama Governor Don Siegleman, who was falsely imprisoned by Alabama cronies of Karl Rove, and is now released on appeal, was recently placed on a “special offender” list to restrict his right to travel. Siegelman was notified by federal probation officers of the new restriction shortly after he traveled to Washington to testify before the House Judiciary Committee, and appeared on 60 Minutes, the Tavis Smiley Show, and Dan Abrams’ Verdict.

The federal “special offender” designation applies to “Individuals identified or associated with traditional or non-traditional organized crime such as the Mafia, outlaw motorcycle gangs, Asian gangs, prison gangs, etc., persons identified as potential terrorists, kidnappers, members of a supremacy group, major bookmakers, major drug or weapon traffickers, pornographers, sex offenders, armed bank robbers, offenders of high notoriety, or cases similar nature.”

“This basically means I can’t travel out of Birmingham or Montgomery without a lot of red tape, and long delays. For example to travel in some places requires at least 30 days advance approval,” Siegelman said.

But on May 2, federal court officials acknowledged that they erred in classifying Siegelman as a special offender.

“They made an honest mistake,” Redmond said, acknowledging that the restrictions were illegal. “They were giving him conditions for a special offender under probation. He’s not. He’s pretrial.”
Cheney refuses to cooperate with Congressional Torture Investigation, claiming Congress has no authority over vice-president

The lawyer for U.S. vice-president Dick Cheney said Cheney would refuse to allow David Addington, the vice president’s chief of staff, to testify about his involvement in the approval of interrogation tactics used at Guantanamo Bay. The privilege asserted by Cheney’s office recalls his attempt last year to evade rules for disclosing classified documents by claiming that the vice president’s office is a hybrid branch of government that is neither executive nor legislative.
Ashcroft and Yoo Refuse to Testify About Torture

In another imaginative legal claim with dubious constitutionality, two other witnesses sought by Congressman John Conyers, former U.S. attorney general John Ashcroft and former U.S. justice department lawyer John Yoo, claim that their involvement in civil lawsuits related to harsh torture allows them to avoid appearing before Congress. “I am aware of no basis for the remarkable claim that pending civil litigation somehow immunizes an individual from testifying before Congress,” Conyers wrote.
Karl Rove Resists Congressional Request to Testify on His Siegelman Mischief

“The House Judiciary Committee threatened last Thursday to subpoena former White House adviser Karl Rove if he does not agree by May 12 to testify about former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman’s corruption case.

“In a letter to Rove’s attorney, committee Democrats called it ‘completely unacceptable’ that the Republican political strategist has rejected the panel’s request for sworn testimony even as he discusses the matter publicly through the media and op-eds and magazine interviews with tame reporters at GQ, and appearances with the administration’s media poodles on Fox News.

On April 7, MSNBC anchor Dan Abrams reported that Rove’s attorney, Robert Luskin, said Rove would agree to testify if Congress issues a subpoena to him as part of an investigation into the Siegelman case.

Ten days later, committee members invited Rove to appear, citing among other things Rove’s interview with GQ magazine. In that interview, Rove hurled insults at CBS News for airing a 60 Minutes segment on the Siegelman case, called his chief accuser a “lunatic” — but didn’t specifically deny any of the accusations.

In an April 29 letter back to the committee, Luskin changed his position[PDF], arguing that Rove would only appear under the following conditions: “Mr. Rove is prepared to make himself available for an interview on this specific issue with Committee staff. Mr. Rove would speak candidly and truthfully about this matter, but the interview would not be transcribed nor would Mr. Rove be under oath.”

 
Hate-filled Right Wing Radio

Racial slurs abound these days on right wing radio, particularly among the right’s leading shock jocks Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, Neal Boortz, Michael Savage and Lou Dobbs. During his May 5 appearance on FOX News, Rush Limbaugh referred to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (D), who is Hispanic, as a “shoe shine guy.

A 2007 study of talk radio conducted by the Project for Excellence in Journalism found that in the second quarter of 2007, when right wing radio resorted to spreading fear and hatred in order to defeat immigration reform. Immigration was the #1 topic – representing 16% of all airtime on right wing radio – led by Limbaugh, Hannity, and Savage. Neal Boortz chipped in too, urging listeners to help defeat “this illegal alien amnesty bill” and “yank out the welcome mat.” Speaking of undocumented immigrants he said, “Give ‘em all a little nuclear waste and let ‘em take it on down there to Mexico. Tell ‘em…it’ll heat tortillas.” Michael Savage encouraged his listeners to “burn a Mexican flag” and to “tell them to go back to where they came from.”

Bigotry and Hatred is Good Business

Propped up by the conservative bias among corporate media barons who control the airwaves, right-wing radio now claims 91 percent of U.S. radio airspace. Salon.com reported that “Talk like Savage’s, or Limbaugh’s or O’Reilly’s, has become routine, even systematic, and certainly a big business. According to the Senate Democratic Policy Committee, the top five radio station owners that control the 45 most powerful, 50,000-watt or more radio stations broadcast 310 hours of nationally syndicated right-wing talk. But they broadcast only a total of five hours of countervailing talk.” Meanwhile the public popularity of progressive talk is growing.
Thanks to Right-Wing Corporate Owners Right-Wing Hate Talk Dominates Airwaves

While progressive talk is making inroads on commercial stations, right-wing talk reigns supreme on America’s airwaves. Some key findings:

– In the spring of 2007, of the 257 news/talk stations owned by the top five commercial station owners, 91 percent of the total weekday talk radio programming was conservative, and only 9 percent was progressive.

– Each weekday, 2,570 hours and 15 minutes of conservative talk are broadcast on these stations compared to 254 hours of progressive talk–10 times as much conservative talk as progressive talk.

– 76 percent of the news/talk programming in the top 10 radio markets is conservative, while 24 percent is progressive.
Bush Is the Least Popular President in History

A CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll indicates that 71 percent of the American public disapprove of President Bush’s job performance, making him the most unpopular president in modern American history, even less popular than Richard Nixon just prior to his resignation.

“Bush’s approval rating, which stands at 28 percent in our new poll, remains better than the all-time lows set by Harry Truman and Richard Nixon [22 percent and 24 percent, respectively], but even those two presidents never got a disapproval rating in the 70s,” Keating Holland, CNN’s polling director said. “The previous all-time record in CNN or Gallup polling was set by Truman, 67 percent disapproval in January 1952.”

A January poll – conducted on the five-year anniversary of Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” moment on board the USS Abraham Lincoln – found the percentage of Americans who think the U.S. is making progress in Iraq stood at 50 percent. That number has since dropped to 39 percent.

 
Radioactive waste being shipped from Kuwait for Disposal in Idaho

6,700 tons of sand contaminated with depleted uranium and lead is currently being shipped by rail from Longview, Washington to a hazardous waste disposal site in Idaho. The radioactive sand – which was shipped from Camp Doha, a U.S. Army Base in Kuwait – was contaminated with uranium after military vehicles and munitions caught fire during the first Persian Gulf War in 1991. The contaminated sand is destined for burial at American Ecology’s dumping grounds in the Owyhee Desert 70 miles southeast of Boise. The Kuwaiti government wanted no part of the waste which it considered a danger to the Kuwaiti people. Kuwait’s Ministry of Defense contracted Texas-based MKM Engineers Inc. to package and transport the waste back to the United States. MKM then subcontracted with American Ecology to dispose the military waste at its Idaho facility.
Whistleblowers Say Private U.S. Contractors Looted, Stole and Ran a Prostitution Ring

In an investigative report largely ignored by the mainstream media, Mother Jones reports the shocking testimony of three whistleblowers who recently appeared before the Senate’s Democratic Policy Committee (DPC). The whistleblowers told the committee that U.S. private contractors routinely looted Iraqi palaces and ministries, stole military equipment, fenced supplies destined for U.S. troops, and even operated a prostitution ring that may have contributed to the death of fellow contractor.

Barry Halley, a former project manager for Worldwide Network Services, a Washington, D.C.-based firm that was working on subcontract for DynCorp, testified that his site manager in Iraq, who he said was employed by a “major defense contractor,” moonlighted as the leader of a prostitution ring serving American contractors in Iraq. The sex business sideline indirectly caused the death of a colleague. “A co-worker unrelated to the ring was killed when he was traveling in an unsecure car and shot performing a high-risk mission,” he told the committee. “I believe that my co-worker could have survived if he had been riding in an armored car. At the time, the armored car that he would otherwise have been riding in was being used by a manager to transport prostitutes from Kuwait to Baghdad.”

Frank Cassaday, a former contract employee of disgraced Cheney-connected firm KBR told the committee about an ice-stealing operation the company ran “cheating the troops out of ice at the same time that [the foreman in charge was] trading the ice for DVDs, CDs, food, and other items at the Iraqi shops across the street.”

Cassaday also detailed how he was jailed in his tent for two days by KBR security and later transferred to a laundry job because he had reported to KBR superiors that his colleagues were stealing equipment from the U.S. military, including refrigerators, artillery round detonators, two rocket launchers, and about 800 rounds of small arms ammunition.

Another KBR whistleblower, Linda Warren, testifying about her time in Baghdad in 2004, said she was shocked by the number of contractors involved in criminal activity. “KBR employees who were contracted to perform construction duties inside palaces and municipal buildings were looting,” she said. “Not only were they looting, but they had a system in place to get contraband out of the country so it could be sold on eBay. They stole artwork, rugs, crystal, and even melted down gold to make spurs for cowboy boots.” Like Cassaday, KBR superiors punished Warren for speaking up, taking her vehicle away, monitoring her movements, cutting off her access to phones and the Internet, and ultimately transferring her out of Baghdad.
Iraqi Interpreters Who Helped U.S. Are Being Tossed Under the Bus By Bush Administration

The Bush administration is ignoring the plight of Iraqi interpreters who have risked their lives to provide essential help to U.S. soldiers. Interpreters have been kidnapped, tortured and assassinated by insurgents punishing them for working with the U.S. The Bush administration promised them refugee status to bring them here to safety, but has not delivered, leaving them at lethal risk.
Rockefellers Call on Exxon Mobil to Spend More on Oil Alternatives

Descendants of company founder John D. Rockefeller want Exxon Mobil to spend more money on alternative fuels and bar the CEO from also serving as chairman. Sixteen Rockefeller family members are urging fellow shareholders to support four resolutions on the environment and corporate governance at the company’s May 28 annual meeting.
More Record Profits for Oil Barons

Astounding profits in the oil industry are becoming as routine as the anguished looks of motorists filling up their gas tanks, the AP reports.

ExxonMobil, Shell and BP netted almost $13 million an hour combined in the first quarter amid the steepest increase in oil prices since 2000.

Exxon’s revenue climbed 34 percent to $116.9 billion, but Exxon’s 17 percent profit increase lagged behind the gains of 25 percent and 63 percent by Shell and BP. Chevron put yet another exclamation point on the oil patch’s long run of prosperity Friday with a first-quarter profit of $5.17 billion. That was up 10 percent from net income of $4.72 billion last year.

It was the second-highest quarterly profit in the company’s 129-year history and marked the most money that it has ever made during the January-March period. That puts the No. 2 U.S. oil company on track for its fifth straight year of record earnings.

BP posted a 63 percent surge in first-quarter net profit to $7.6 billion, while Shell reported a 25 percent rise, to a record $9.08 billion. ConocoPhillips reported a 16 percent rise in net income to $4.14 billion. Like BP and Shell, the third biggest U.S. producer far outpaced industry expectations.

Republicans Block Federal Aid to Wind and Solar

Tom Friedman of the New York Times reports:

Few Americans know it, but for almost a year now, Congress has been bickering over whether and how to renew the investment tax credit to stimulate investment in solar energy and the production tax credit to encourage investment in wind energy. The bickering has been so poisonous that when Congress passed the 2007 energy bill last December, it failed to extend any stimulus for wind and solar energy production. Oil and gas kept all their credits, but those for wind and solar have been left to expire this December. I am not making this up. At a time when we should be throwing everything into clean power innovation, we are squabbling over pennies.

These credits are critical because they ensure that if oil prices slip back down again — which often happens — investments in wind and solar would still be profitable. That’s how you launch a new energy technology and help it achieve scale, so it can compete without subsidies.

The Democrats wanted the wind and solar credits to be paid for by taking away tax credits from the oil industry. President Bush said he would veto that. Neither side would back down, and Mr. Bush — showing not one iota of leadership — refused to get all the adults together in a room and work out a compromise. Stalemate. Meanwhile, Germany has a 20-year solar incentive program; Japan 12 years. Ours, at best, run two years.

“It’s a disaster,” says Michael Polsky, founder of Invenergy, one of the biggest wind-power developers in America. “Wind is a very capital-intensive industry, and financial institutions are not ready to take ‘Congressional risk.’ They say if you don’t get the [production tax credit] we will not lend you the money to buy more turbines and build projects.”

If the wind and solar credits expire, said Rhone Resch, the president of the Solar Energy Industries Association, the impact in just 2009 would be more than 100,000 jobs either lost or not created in these industries, and $20 billion worth of investments that won’t be made.

While all the presidential candidates were railing about lost manufacturing jobs in Ohio, no one noticed that America’s premier solar company, First Solar, from Toledo, Ohio, was opening its newest factory in the former East Germany — 540 high-paying engineering jobs — because Germany has created a booming solar market and America has not.

    Let me get this straight: Alabama governor Don Siegleman was deemed a terrorist because he…uh, went on TV?

    well, that’s how i interpreted what RFK jr. says below:

    RFK JR.
    “Former Alabama Governor Don Siegleman, who was falsely imprisoned by Alabama cronies of Karl Rove, and is now released on appeal, was recently placed on a “special offender” list to restrict his right to travel.

    Siegelman was notified by federal probation officers of the new restriction shortly after he traveled to Washington to testify before the House Judiciary Committee, and appeared on 60 Minutes, the Tavis Smiley Show, and Dan Abrams’ Verdict.

    The federal “special offender” designation applies to “Individuals identified or associated with traditional or non-traditional organized crime such as the Mafia, outlaw motorcycle gangs, Asian gangs, prison gangs, etc., persons identified as potential terrorists, kidnappers, members of a supremacy group, major bookmakers, major drug or weapon traffickers, pornographers, sex offenders, armed bank robbers, offenders of high notoriety, or cases similar nature.”

    Holy crap!

    So now exercising your 1st amendment right to go on some stupid cable news show puts you in the same terrorist camp with drug and weapons traffickers, armed robbers, prison gangs, kidnappers, and Nazis…and you’re not just some nobody. You’re the frickin’ Governor of the State of Alabama?

    My God, the lunatics have taken over the asylum.

    Karl Rove, will only testify… If subpoena’d and he won’t (a) go on record or (b) have to be sworn in? WHAT?! Since when does a shi*tbum who wasn’t an elected official to anything…(Neither was BUSH!) who was merely an advisor to follow up on NAZI/FASCIST REGIME CHANGE HERE AT HOME! (propoganda) leading to and directly resulting in the evisceration od OUR CONSTITUTION, let alone the outting of one of OUR CIA undercover agents in a time of WAR… Given anything similar to the granting of Presidential / dictoral “shielding” that BUSH & CHENEY indentically took from fighting off subpoenas when they were cowering from the investigative committe to investigate the very whereabouts and foreknowledge of theirs on 9/11/2001?! Who’s idea was it to come up with this kind of horseshit anyway?! These bums over used their refussal to testify privileges.. When they do show up, to appease us, they’re so frigging smug, they have the audacity to give covenants to thier appeasing appearances to us, by making claims and assumptions that they state that they won’t be made to take an oath?!!! Won’t tolerate a stenographer?!! will not submit to going on record?!!! How dare you Karl Rove! How the F*ck dare you… You sir are also going down in history as a marked man, who sold the soul of a once great land. Though, through no acts of brilliance or genious, in the acts offensively commited by Heir Rove, are even genuine… A mere follower of and one whom which espoused an idolitry for non other than the sickest and most depraved despot and moral degenarate in history… Adolf Hitler

    Quoting Hitler like an exhibitinist in referring to the “Homeland” and taking direct quotations from Hitler himself to serve as public statements, further indicts this behavior from this man and the Bush Administration.

    Adolf Hitler and Nazi Propoganda are not a stretch to compare this regime to… Bush & Rove are directly tied to the Nazi Party from their immediate descendants, these men carry the money and power givent to them from nothingless than Adolf Hitler directly…

    Look into it… The events of 9/11/2001 and Hitler’s rise to power through the burning of the reichstag. (http://www.historyplace.com/worldwar2/riseofhitler/burns.htm)

    I agree with Life Coach. The Democrats are worthless. We can try to put the blame all on the Republicans, but they’ve had their enablers in both the Dem party and the mainstream media. The Dems aren’t willing to stand up to the Republicans, so we don’t have an opposition party in this country. It’s more like we have two right-wing, corporatized parties. It’s enough to make me consider becoming a Green.

  9. So true, Allison. That’s my #1 beef with the American political system at the moment: we no longer have an opposition party.

    What we are given is a choice between two sides of essentially the same corporate coin.

    I heard Ralph Nader say the same thing recently – that America no longer has an opposition party” – and he echoed my thoughts exactly. Nowadays, the “opposition” party is the independent movement, methinks – and I could not be more pleased to see Americans rejecting the status quo in such terrific numbers this year. By distancing ourselves from the partisan divide of all political parties, we see things clearer and can truly think (and vote) for ourselves.

    But this surging independent movement needs a dynamic candidate who can give Barack Obama a run for his money. As much as I adore Nader and know he can win a debate (anytime he is allowed to be on the premesis, that is), how can a 74 year-old man beat the youthful, charasmatic Obama?

    This will be John McCain’s greatest handicap going into the general election – besides being a Republican. lol.

    Nader, bless his heart, is 2 years older than McCain, so the odds are more stacked against him than ever.

    Speaking of Greens, I really like Cynthia McKinney quite a bit. not only is she young, beautiful and brilliant, I kinda dig the notion of the first black FEMALE president!

    Barack and Hillary can’t touch that!;)

    A word about Coulda, Woulda, Shouldas…

    Short of some kind of …gate or another ‘terrorist’ attack, we will have our first Black President in This Great country. Biasedly, I must take a sense of pride in this… I feel that Obama will live up to cleaning clocks and cleaning house or at least make great attempts to stop the profusive bleeding from our countries’ last 7 years of slashings it has taken from the self-served, Entitled and self-adorning, conflict of interested Washington Fascist insiders.

    This has been the mantra, this has been the promise, this has been the hope for the change of which Sen. Obama speaks of so convictedly…

    I don’t believe that there will be feathering of nests with Corporate cronies and the setup for financial ruin and impropriety that George (Basebal club owner) Bush took part in on day one of his presidency…

    Obama, has a lot to accomplish and he’ll have been given probably the worst case of scenarios a President could possibly face in fact… I don’t admire the job and I pray for his safe keeping and his thorough resolve to jump in feet first to take the wheel of the abandoned speeding car he will be asked to manuever to restore this country from its careening course with disaster.

    In keeping with a Kennedy focus in continuity, I am reassured that this man is the right choice for us to take back our country. Caroline Kennedy, wouldn’t just pop out of private life to throw actual political endorsement to just anyone. She is the living legacy to JFK and knows all too well what the political game is really all about. I believe she has backed this man because of the fact that she doesn’t believe he is playing a game. I believe that she and Sen. Kennedy are of the common belief that this man embodies the grit and determination to clean house, like JFK intended to. I have great respect for this family and I believe if they tell me to jump, I’ll say how high? RFK, Jr. also has my enduring respect, I wish he didn’t settle for whatever he was told he might get to back Sen. Clinton. I wish he was running for President. Either way, I’m sure he’ll find an easier path to accomplish what his goals are after we unite and put Sen. Obama in the White House. Ralph Nader will find life easier as well and his eforts won’t fall on deaf Fascist ears as well in championing what he seeks for our best interests as well.

    A word to the Iranian News Org. who commented here… We aren’t a nation of hate breeding people. I hope you can believe and trust in this statement. I believe it takes two people to have an arguement. I believe that if that arguement finds no grounds to have cilvilized dialog, there can be no answers and with much in terms of money and power to be had in keeping the dialog unresolved, you cannot have a diaolg and you cannot reach an understanding. We don’t know each other. I’m sure that most of the problems we face from the past and through the present has much to do with that fact, that we don’t know each other. We have a foreign policy that doesn’t encourage us to get to know you and you don’t have a foreign policy that allows you to know us. I believe that this will be rapidly changing with Senator Obama becoming our President. He has gone out on a limb to be in the minority as a real leader to be the only candidate to encourage and make part of his platform for governmental policy, to reach out to Iran. I too want for this to happen, I too want for us to have peace, I too believe that our country is very concerned about your leaders’ statements to ratchet up violence and commit to more hatred (if that is possible). Neither one of our leaders’ have been very good at making peace in your land. That needs to change. You see how we argue and blog here in the U.S. about how we detest our government’s actions about Iraq, 9/11/2001 and now Iran. You can and should be doing the same in Iran. Seperate and isolated and quiet, there can be nothing but the war hawks (Yours and ours) unified, loud and combined, we can force change to happen from within my friend. You asked for “us” to help you my friend, I offer my time to embrace your plea and to pray to a GOD which we all share… It doesn’t matter what we mortals call him or what the “rules” of our seperate religions are… The one common thread we all share is that there is one Earth, one heaven and one creator… He didn’t make us seperately, we are his human creatures on this very unique and special place in all of the galaxy… If there were an asteroid coming to Earth and complete destruction were immenent… Would the hate all be worth it? What’s the difference then in facing global catastrophy with the nuclear threat that is upon us today my friend? Help us to help you and you are in the right place to speak about this, come back and speak often… Tell us about your governments’ short-comings like we have told you about ours… This is where it begins. There will be much that needs to change in our world and we need to change much very soon.

If there were one reference to the Nazi party during this administration, there were a hundred! Now according to Heir Bush, it’s the DEMOCRATS that are Nazi sympathizers?!!! Somebody get the paddy wagon NOW!!! it’s time to subpeona all these Nazi’s!!!

    This should be the shot heard round the world! That this freakish bafoon would have in his last days in office, having achieved the wholesale liquidation of the United sates of America, breaking allmost every real Constitutional law on the books as President and creating some new ones while he was at it, Has the audacity and arrogance to launch this manipulative statement, to an international audience, without provocation and without ANY LEGITIMATE MERIT for circumstance, nor did or does it follow any continuity of existing Isreali dialog in current foreign policy…

    Wasn’t this supposed to be a Peace Talk visit?!! I wonder seriously about his mental state and mental stability.

    Call a spade “A Spade” Karl Rove aspires to being “Ratfucker” since his earliest adulthood… Well… He’s a success then.

    This is the guy who is better than our governments’ Subpeona, who is above our laws and who is the lynch pin to revealing everything filthy of ours since the Kennedy Assasinations and the NAZI takeover of the NWO…

    “Rove’s saga is a rags-to-riches success story of a political serial killer. His first involvement in a political campaign was to conduct a dirty trick against a candidate running for Illinois state treasurer. After Rove dropped out of the University of Utah, his promise was recognized and he was appointed executive director of the College Republicans. Donald Segretti, ringmaster for the Committee to Reelect the President of a gang of dirty tricksters engaged in what he called “ratfucking,” recruited Rove. Rove conducted one session training young Republicans to sift through the garbage of opponents. In the Watergate scandal, Segretti was sentenced to prison for forging campaign literature. The FBI questioned Rove, but dropped its investigation of the small fry. Yet he would become the greatest rat fucker of them all. The new chairman of the Republican National Committee, George H.W. Bush, named Rove chairman of the College Republicans and, even more fortuitously, appointed him as a handler of his obstreperous older son. It was love at first sight, at least from the nerdy Rove’s point of view. “Huge amounts of charisma, swagger, cowboy boots, flight jacket, wonderful smile, just charisma — you know, wow,” he said later. “
