Senate Betrays Us

by David Schlecht

[Updated below]

The Republicans are all up in arms about what they consider the unpatriotic MoveOn advertisement. Not just that, but some spineless Democrats supported the amendment to criticize MoneOn, as well.

Yes, these are the same Republican traitors who lied repeatedly to disparage their ex-military political opponents. How many of these traitors were silent or openly behind the Swift Boating of John Kerry? Yet, when MoveOn buys an ad that is factual, they’re all up in arms. Does any of this seem just a little bit hypocritical?

Olberman has a great piece on this, tonight. Watch this over at Crooks and Liars.

Keep in mind that our own government, against the will of the vast majority of Americans, just now defeated the restoration of Habeas Corpus and defeated a bill to support the military, but they have the hypocrisy to object to free and honest speech.

This type of blind hypocrisy, as ugly as it is, is what we have come to expect from our Republican party. However, this amendment had the support of many Democrats as well.

I generally avoid disparaging remarks about the Democratic party, as there is plenty of lies, hate end venom coming from the Republican Party. However, this warrants a big acknowledgment on the part of the Democratic voters. We can’t just sit by silently while our own elected officials make a mockery of our rights and our government. Call your representatives and find out why they caved to the hypocrites. What? Is free speech no longer an American freedom? We can lie and slander Kerry, but can’t even ask if Political Hack Betrayus is betraying his position, his oath, and the American people?

Call and write your newspaper, and your representatives. I’m taking all my Democratic donations and giving them to MoveOn so they can keep up the good fight.

Update:
Here’s a list of the Democrats who voted to destroy America’s Freedom of Speech:

Baucus (D-MT), Bayh (D-IN), Cardin (D-MD), Carper (D-DE), Casey (D-PA), Conrad (D-ND), Dorgan (D-ND), Feinstein (D-CA), Johnson (D-SD), Klobuchar (D-MN), Kohl (D-WI), Landrieu (D-LA), Leahy (D-VT), Lincoln (D-AR), McCaskill (D-MO), Mikulski (D-MD), Nelson (D-FL), Nelson (D-NE), Pryor (D-AR), Salazar (D-CO), Tester (D-MT), Webb (D-VA)

State of Decline

by David Schlecht

Historians will be looking back at our generation in amazement, not for our great technology or our great artwork or at our great humanitarian achievements, but at the decline of America’s self respect. This week has brought to the foreground the total blockade the Republicans have successfully imposed on the American political process.

This week, the Republicans have, against the will of the people, blocked legislation to restore Habeas Corpus. The vast majority of American want to see justice restored, but the Republicans successfully prevented it from coming up for a vote. Even the vast majority of our politicians “claim” to support restoring justice, yet a small minority, the Republicans, kept us in the Dark Ages.

America, do you realize that your government has gotten out of your control? You are being controlled by an unresponsive government? The framers of our constitution, our country’s forefathers, repeatedly expressed the need to be prepared to revolt if it ever comes to this. I don’t think we’re at the point of revolt, not yet, anyway. But we are at the point that we need to remove the politicians who are refusing to represent the voters.

Today! Every Republican who decided to obstruct justice, needs to be recalled. Every single one! If they’re not representing America, they’re taking over the country and it’s either remove them now, peacefully, or be prepared to use force to extract them later.

The liars have repeatedly pretended to support the troops and repeatedly accused anyone else of being soft on terror or unsupportive of the troops. This week, in keeping with their true beliefs, the Republicans have again filibustered to prevent America from supporting our troops by giving them sufficient rest between tours in Bush’s war. The Republicans in our government have lied so repeatedly and so dependably that America has lost all confidence in their ability to lead the country. Liars left to infect the political system are causing this country extreme harm. They can’t say they support the troops and then vote against them. Liars!

Republicans do not support the troops or America.

Yes, history will look back, your kids and grand kids will look back and wonder where you were when America needed you.

Impeach the liars.

White House Missing Emails

by Dave Speck

So — the deadline has come and gone for the White House’s missing emails. So what?

Will the Democratic congress do anything about it? What’s that you say? Another non-binding panty-waist threat. Will the Democrats get their crap together before they get voted out next November?

If you ask me, I’d say probably not. And, that’s exactly what the Republican machinery wants. Their hate and fear filled followers will come out in droves to vote where the real Americans will stay home in utter horror of what as come of their country.

If there was ever a time for the Democratically controlled congress to do something, it’s right now. Today! Do something!

Lost 9 Soldiers in Iraq, Today

by David Schlecht

I’m sorry to say that we lost nine more brave soldiers, today, in Iraq. Nine soldiers die while General Betray-us betrays the American people. Yes, 6 more years. Yes. YES! Oh, God, YES!

Does anyone else find it worrisome that even our military has become so corrupt that they spew the White House propaganda, without a single shred of honesty or impartiality. Doesn’t that seem just a little scary? Will these same Republican operatives, responsible for our military, turn our military against us in a pinch? Does anyone really doubt that it’s exactly what they would do?

What would Hitler do with this power?

New By Lines

by David Schlecht

Dear gentle readers. Thanks for all the feedback on this site.

Due to popular demand, and due to the number of distinct authors contributing to this blog, you will now see By Lines showing who writes each article. I admit, it’s been rather confusing who we’re reading.

Who wrote the article? The mystery is now solved.

This will also make it easier to search on a particular author.

Tell me what I want to hear or else

by David Schlecht

Remember Saddam Husein? Yes, that’s the one. The tyrant responsible for all those weapons of mass destruction. Remember him? We all saw the awful things that happened when he would dismiss or behead anyone in his government (or family) who didn’t agree with him. Hitler had the same problem. Eventually he had nobody around him who dared express any reality. Eventually Hitler knew very little about how bad the war really was going, because nobody dared tell him.

In today’s news, “Bush advisers favor current war strategy”. Sound familiar?

Bush has replaced anyone and everyone who is willing to express the folly of the surge or the folly of invading Iraq or the need to prepare for country building, or anything. Now, all that are left for the Hitler administration are the yes-men who refuse to explain to George that Paris isn’t burning.

Why does the Corrupt Corporate Media quote these empty shells? Why do they care? Why should we care what “Bush Advisers” have to say? They’ve been so reliably wrong since the very beginning, the only time we should listen to them is when we want to know what NOT to do.

I’m not saying Bush is Hitler. No, America’s Corrupt Corporate Media would never support that. The American Republican party would never blindly support a closed-minded leader who refused to listen to dissension, or even opposing views.  No, it would never happen here. I’m talking about Bush, here, not Hitler. I wonder if Hitler would have supported 21st century medicine and research over biblical rantings? Maybe we would be better off with Hitler. At least then the conservatives would see what they’re signing up for, not that any of them would refrain from joining the party.

It’s not too late to Impeach, but it may well be too late, soon enough. Why wait?

Pope demands respect for Sundays

by Paul Johnson

From the BBC:

Pope Benedict XVI has appealed for renewed respect for Sundays

When the world’s churches come clean, then and only then can they start asking that those of us with morals change our behavior. That’s right, the pope and his church has the morals of barbarians from 3,000 years ago. In fact, that’s where their rules and morals have come from.

That’s right. read the bible, rape your wife, your slaves, your children, even kill your children, just like the bible tells us, and then tell the rest of the world that we need to show respect. Do people with functioning brains really listen to these immoral cult leaders?

Hey Benedict, how about showing respect for the living by donating some of your millions of dollars to stem cell research? How about selling your multi-million dollar churches and help the poor, the unfortunate, the uneducated, the sick. How many people would be saved by closing just one church, Benedict?

Follow Jesus, ban the churches. Read the bible and you will see that Jesus opposed organized religion. Ever wonder why? Follow Jesus, ban the churches, or — follow the Pope and show some more respect for Sundays.

7 Americans Die in Iraq Today

I’m sorry to report that we have lost another 7 Americans in Iraq, today. Oh my gosh, you can just smell the progress can’t you?

What kind of lies is the White House trying to feed us? Things aren’t improving. It’s a disaster and everyone knows it. There’s no other way to describe it. We had a chance to do this thing right (not that it was ever the right thing to do) if we had planned before invading. An additional 100,000 troops at the beginning may have helped. Getting the country back on its feet right away would have helped. Now it’s too late for these things.

The only solution is to give Iraq a pull-out date and let them do what needs to be done to be prepared to govern their own country.

Bush has made an absolute disaster of everything he has done to this country and now wants to wait for someone else to come along after him and clean it all up. It’s way past time, but it’s never too late to impeach.

IMPEACH!

Basra Pullout. British Withdrawl Leaves Basra Unprotected

From the NY Times:

The British Army began withdrawing from its last base in Basra’s city center early Monday, a move that will leave Iraq’s second-largest city without foreign forces for the first time since the American-led invasion in 2003.

The pullout came as two of Britain’s most influential generals during the Iraq war delivered scathing attacks on the Americans for their handling of the campaign after Saddam’s defeat.

Will the US Corrupt Conservative Media pick this up? Nah, didn’t think so.

If we know that the Bush administration lies to us about the most important of issues, and the Bush administration controls the news and information about Iraq that comes in to the American media, and the other world media outlets paint a completely different picture of Iraq than Bush does, who are we to believe?

I guess things are going just swimmingly in Iraq.
