Bush And Mush Linked At The Hip, Face Similar Fates

Posted by bosskitty on August 12, 2007

Rice ‘sways Musharraf on emergency’
LAHORE, Pakistan (CNN) — U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice helped persuade Pakistan’s President Pervez Musharraf to hold off declaring a state of emergency, high level Pakistani government sources said Thursday. Musharraf was said to be considering the move, which would bolster military rule and suspend democratic freedoms, amid security concerns that pose the biggest threat to army chief’s rule since he seized power in a coup in 1999. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Despite Musharraf’s apparent climbdown, senior U.S. military officials remain deeply concerned that the state of emergency remained a viable option for Pakistan’s leader, according to CNN Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr.

Scared the US, huh, Bush was not ready to pull the inevitable terror debacle to declare his own ‘state emergency’. For Bush and Musharraf, the timing must be right. So, we must keep a close eye on Musharraf , he is our weather vane for the storm Bush has planned for us.

Musharraf’s State of Emergency By Ahmed Rashid, Washington Post
LAHORE, Pakistan — President Pervez Musharraf was on the verge of imposing a state of emergency in Pakistan last week before being stopped by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and civilian advisers. It is clear to all in this extremely tense country that power is rapidly flowing away from Musharraf, even as he desperately tries to find a way out of an impossible political impasse.
Bhutto wants to restore democracy
Independent Online, South Africa – Pakistani President General Pervez Musharraf has reiterated his opposition to the return of two exiled former prime ministers before parliamentary elections … in remarks broadcast on Sunday, ex-Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto highlighted her party’s opposition to Pakistan having military leadership.

BENAZIR BHUTTO, the former prime minister and leader of Pakistan’s largest opposition party, said she hoped to return home by mid-October for elections in which she may ally with the President, Pervez Musharraf.
“I would like to go back to Pakistan sooner rather than later, but General Musharraf still is opposed to my return to Pakistan,” Bhutto said in New York on Saturday. “He’s prepared for my return to Pakistan but the timing of it is under dispute between the two of us.”

ISLAMABAD, Aug 11: President Gen Pervez Musharraf on Saturday said the return of Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif to the country before the general election would disturb the political atmosphere, adding that they would be well-advised not to insist on coming home.

Russian Gays Face Tough Road Toward Equality

Posted by bosskitty on August 11, 2007

Most Seem to Favor Low-Key Approach Over Confrontational One

By Anton Troianovski Special to The Washington Post Saturday, August 11, 2007

… with a small gay rights movement taking shape amid a more frank pop culture, gays are struggling with altogether different questions. Should they openly confront what many people see as growing homophobia in a society where nationalism is on the rise and grass-roots social movements are almost nonexistent?

A handful of activists made headlines around the world this past spring when they were viciously beaten by Russian nationalists at a gay rights protest in central Moscow. Riot police on the scene offered no protection. The activists claimed a partial victory, arguing that media coverage allowed the whole world to witness the plight of gays in Russia.

Firm resistance is needed, said Alexey Davidov, 30, a leader of the march. Gays who disagree “don’t realize, if things keep going the way they’re going, how many dead bodies there will be all around Russia 50 years from now.”

Campaigners say homophobia is as much a political as a social issue. They note that nationalists portray gay groups as conspiring with foreigners to smear Russia’s reputation. On May 29, for instance, several journalists published a letter in the pro-Kremlin Trud daily that said: “The short-lasting arrests [at the protest] allowed the foreign press to get video footage of the ‘violation of the rights of sexual minorities’ — which is in high demand in the nascent large-scale psychological war against Russia.”

<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>

But other gays express skepticism over an approach that pushes them into the public eye. “Some people come to wave their fists, and others come to prove that we’re gays, we’re somebody and aren’t scared of you,” said Svetlana, 17, at a Moscow city park frequented by gays. “What can come of it?”

A handful of activists made headlines around the world this past spring when they were viciously beaten by Russian nationalists at a gay rights protest in central Moscow. Riot police on the scene offered no protection. The activists claimed a partial victory, arguing that media coverage allowed the whole world to witness the plight of gays in Russia.

In politics, gay groups have found next to no allies. None of the small parties that advocate Western-style democracy have made an issue of gay rights; some of them argue that Russia has much bigger problems.

Despite the hostility, gay life in Moscow quietly beats on. On July 7, a lesbian couple exchanged the marriage vows of the Russian Orthodox Church. The ceremony, held in a cramped apartment that is home to two couples, was attended by a handful of close friends, but no parents.

“God has no people whom He turns away or doesn’t accept,” Skripnik-Dardaki said. “And gays are the most glaring example of these people who are turned away — exiled, besmirched, spat-upon, damned.”

Some day humans that populate this planet will be accepted as humans who populate this planet. Humans are responsible for caretaking the environmental sustainability of this planet for the welfare of fellow humans. Political and religious excuses for excluding any segment of the human population are totally unacceptable. Prosecute humans who hurt other humans.

All humans were created by the same higher power for one reason or other. When humans turn against one another, it is of their own making and not the making of the higher power. If you really think that a higher power is amused at the conflict we perpetrate upon one another, you are delusional. Are humans just a spectator sport? Humans are certainly living out a Roman Coliseum side show for someone out there. We are responsible for our own despair and have no heavenly excuse for what we do to each other!

Good Timing For Bush – American Al Qaeda Speaks

Posted by bosskitty on August 5, 2007

Qaeda video vows attacks on US missions

LONDON (Thomson Financial) – A wanted American member of Al-Qaeda has warned in a new video that US diplomatic missions and other interests were ‘legitimate targets,’ vowing that the network would attack these ‘spy dens.’

In the footage compiled by Al-Qaeda’s production arm As-Sahab, an unnamed narrator singled out US missions in oil-rich Gulf Arab states as potential targets.

American Terrorist Threatens U.S. in New Al Qaeda Video

CAIRO, Egypt — An American member of Al Qaeda threatened foreign diplomats and embassies in the Islamic world calling them “spy dens” in the terror network’s latest video released Sunday. “We shall continue to target you, at home and abroad, just as you target us, at home and abroad, and these spy dens and military command and control centers from which you plotted your aggression against Afghanistan and Iraq,” said Adam Gadahn, also known as Azzan al-Amriki.

Well, well, well, whether the threat is real or not, the timing of this new threat is impeccable. That children’s story, about the kid who cried ‘WOLF’ too many times, is front and center in my mind. King George has deceived us so many times and been caught in so many lies, that I am skeptical about any more video productions allegedly from Al Qaeda. If this threat is real, we are at the same security level we’ve been in since the war began. Nothing has really changed. Bush and his marketing handlers have staged so many productions that Hollywood should be the one threatened. Funny how Al Qaeda pops into the news every time Bush wants to pull something over on Americans. This ‘American Al Qaeda’ is probably a CIA operative who is handed a script to boost polls to continue Bush’s Armageddon Envy.

Bush Ability to “Strike Fear” Trumps The Bill Of Rights

Posted by bosskitty on August 5, 2007

House Approves Wiretap Measure

White House Bill Boosts Warrantless Surveillance

By Ellen Nakashima and Joby Warrick Washington Post

The Democratic-controlled House last night approved and sent to President Bush for his signature legislation written by his intelligence advisers to enhance their ability to intercept the electronic communications of foreigners without a court order.

The 227 to 183 House vote capped a high-pressure campaign by the White House to change the nation’s wiretap law, in which the administration capitalized on Democrats’ fears of being branded weak on terrorism and on a general congressional desire to act on the measure before an August recess.

If BushCo can strike fear into the hearts of our elected representatives, forcing them to enable illegal and unconstitutional acts, then we have elected nothing! This is now a ghost democracy fraught with Black Ops and Shadow Government. Civil war or revolution is no longer an option … because every move we make is scrutinized. Americans are all suspects now. Americans are the enemy. Americans will become the zombies from George Orwell’s ‘1984’ where hidden microphones and informers in order to catch potential “thoughtcriminals” who could endanger the security of the Dystopian GOP Party.

180px-1984_social_classes_altsvg.png

The original statute was enacted after the revelation of CIA abuses in the 1970s, and it required judicial oversight for most federal wiretapping conducted in the United States.

Privacy and civil liberties advocates, and many Democratic lawmakers, complained that the Bush administration’s revisions of the law could breach constitutional protections against government intrusion. But the administration, aided by Republican congressional leaders, suggested that a failure to approve what intelligence officials sought could expose the country to a greater risk of terrorist attacks.

Democrats facing reelection next year in conservative districts helped propel the bill to a quick approval. Adding to the pressures they felt were recent intelligence reports about threatening new al-Qaeda activity in Pakistan and the disclosure by House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) of a secret court ruling earlier this year that complicated the wiretapping of purely foreign communications that happen to pass through a communications node on U.S. soil.

King George Wins Wiretapping For All Foreigners

Posted by bosskitty on August 4, 2007

Associated Press
House Approves Foreign Wiretap Bill

WASHINGTON –

The House handed President Bush a victory Saturday, voting to expand the government’s abilities to eavesdrop without warrants on foreign suspects whose communications pass through the United States.

The 227-183 vote, which followed the Senate’s approval Friday, sends the bill to Bush for his signature. He had urged Congress to approve it, saying Saturday, “Protecting America is our most solemn obligation.”

Oh well.  What did you really expect?  FISA  neutered,  the 4th Amendment a memory.

The administration said the measure is needed to speed the National Security Agency’s ability to intercept phone calls, e-mails and other communications involving foreign nationals “reasonably believed to be outside the United States.” Civil liberties groups and many Democrats said it goes too far, possibly enabling the government to wiretap U.S. residents communicating with overseas parties without adequate oversight from courts or Congress.

The 227-183 vote, which followed the Senate’s approval Friday, sends the bill to Bush for his signature.

10:38 P.M. –
On agreeing to the resolution Agreed to without objection.
10:37 P.M. –
Considered as privileged matter. On approving the Journal Agreed to by the Yeas and Nays: 205 – 187 (Roll no. 837).

S. 1927:

to amend the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 to provide additional procedures for authorizing certain acquisitions of foreign intelligence information and for other purposes

(Click here to see how everyone voted

Many congressional Democrats wanted tighter restrictions on government surveillance, but yielded in the face of Bush’s veto threats and the impending August recess.

“This bill would grant the attorney general the ability to wiretap anybody, any place, any time without court review,  without any checks and balances,”  said Rep. Zoe Lofgren,  D-Calif.,  during the debate preceding the vote.   “I think this unwarranted, unprecedented measure would simply eviscerate the 4th Amendment,”  which prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures.

The House of Faux Representatives must have a VERY good reason to appease the King.  I am sure the Sunday morning talk shows will be filled with excuses and explanations.  This bill is a great tool not bound by accountability.  Gonzales  will be the decider when and where to use his expanded powers.  Woe, I mean Wow,  I feel safer already.  Time to learn sign language.  I think I’ll wear moccasins, too.  They make no sound as you tiptoe across the border into Canada.

Tough Choices: Who Should We Fear, Them Or Us

Posted by bosskitty on August 4, 2007

Maliki: timetable for US withdrawal not possible

Iraqi PM says neither Baghdad nor Washington can set timetable for withdrawal of US troops from Iraq.

Collapsing Bridges vs. War in Iraq

The Bush administration’s spending priorities – including an estimated $1 trillion for an unnecessary war – will cost the lives not only of US soldiers and Iraqi civilians but American citizens who will die from a decaying infrastructure and other government neglect, argues Stephen Crockett.

Daily demonstrations of corporate corruption, political corruption, missing cash, misused assets, and general bribery reminiscent of third world dictatorships. Corruption is an epidemic in the United States of America. Why? The ‘shock and awe’ of America’s decline is overwhelming. Republicans and Democrats share this disgusting tragedy. Republicans currently hold center stage and are too arrogant about being entitled to break every law this country has. Why? Aren’t tired of the word “FREEDOM” being used for everything from War to Viagra? What exactly are Americans FREE to do? Free to be lazy and complacent? Free to be led by the nose into total chaos by self-serving politicraps? America’s passion has been hi-jacked and is held hostage by political marketing!

Does anyone remember Nikita Khrushchev:

“Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river.”

He was the instigator of Soviet missile forces in Cuba and the Cuban missile crisis, the builder of the Berlin Wall, launched Sputnik and started the Cold War and the space race.  Nikita was a comic but worthy enemy.  His uneducated wisdom does ring true today.

We are victims of our own success and will be hung by our own rope, so espoused Nikita Khrushchev.

Indict Bush After Immunity Is Gone, Like Chirac

Posted by bosskitty on July 21, 2007

Chirac on trial

No other former president in the nearly 50-year history of the Fifth Republic has been questioned by a judge investigating criminal activities.

France’s Chirac Queried in Probe of Party Financing

PARIS — A judge questioned former president Jacques Chirac for more than four hours Thursday in an investigation into a party financing scandal that dates to his time as mayor of Paris, his attorney said.

Chirac faces investigators, his immunity gone

Mr. Chirac lost his presidential immunity from prosecution on June 16, a month after he left office. He has denied committing any wrongdoing during his time as mayor of Paris.

France: Chirac Faces Corruption Inquiry

chirac2.jpeg storiesbush.jpg

In light of these developments surrounding France’s Ex-President prior criminal activities, this country must have the resources to do the same to the Bush Crime Syndicate! Someone, please, gimme a legal take on what we must do to hold them accountable if impeachment fails!

Beware! Bush has a terrorist production in the wings to postpone coming elections! He is laughing from his ass now that the polyps are gone …

Bush Administration Last Days – Are We Scared Yet?

Posted by bosskitty on July 1, 2007

Bush administration wants us to be scared of:

  • AlQaeda,
  • Other un-named terrorists,
  • Gays,
  • anyone who is not a radical Christian, anyone who is not with his agenda,

  • Inclusive health care
  • People who think

This administration wants his population to be white or act white, buy in to the Armageddon concept to justify:

  • atrocities against other cultures (anything outside of his world is PAGAN)
  • completely destroy other civilizations (because they are PAGAN)
  • grab oil resources wherever we can (so his greasy buddies can profit)
  • allow genocide to grow exponentially long enough so that if we DO step up to responsibility thousands or millions have already died,

End Time Christian’s wars against PAGANS are equal to Islam’s war against INFIDELS. Euphemisms abound to cloak atrocities against other populations to justify world domination. The Political Islamists have used terror against innocent Americans, OK, so have Political Christians:

    1. First of all crimes against Americans are results of economic suppression and interference in local politics with extortion and bribery.
    2. American businesses use underhanded tactics to secure advantageous pricing and cheap labor from disadvantaged and desperate.
    3. Americans or their Proxy Mercenary Armies have injured, threatened or killed opposition to their agendas throughout history – don’t get me started on the American Indians.

Pagan can be defined broadly:

Wikipedia – the faith traditions outside the Abrahamic monotheistic group of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. This includes the Dharmic religions (such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism), Native American religions and mythologies and Shinto as well as non-Abrahamic ethnic religions in general. More narrow definitions will not include any of the world religions and restrict the term to local or rural currents not organized as civil religions.

Both “Pagan” and “heathen” have historically been used as a pejorative by adherents of monotheistic religions (such as Judaism, Christianity and Islam) to indicate a disbeliever in their religion.

Religious Extremism: Answers.com, Wikipedia, BBS News

Bush’s conversations with GOD have allowed Counterfeit Religion to be used as an excuse to conquer for OIL!

What More Injustice Can We Do To Our Soldiers?

Wife of Missing Soldier Faces Deportation

AP  Posted: 2007-06-21 03:18:53

BOSTON (June 21) – The wife of a U.S. soldier missing in Iraq  could face deportation , her lawyer told a television station.  Authorities became aware of Yaderlin Jimenez’s illegal status after her husband requested a green card for her.

There is something terribly wrong with our system! 

Count soldier’s families as collateral damage!

China, Darfur and The Genocide Olympics

Posted by bosskitty on June 17, 2007

Darfur, U.N. Troops and Beijing: Cause and Effect?

The China Daily reports that China has welcomed Sudan’s sudden decision to accept a U.N. peace keeping force for the troubled region of Darfur. While it remains to be seen whether this will actually work out (Sudan has said it would agree before only to reneg), I can’t help but wonder about the timing. After all, Sudan
has essentially stonewalled on this for an age. Why the sudden change in attitude? Could it have anything to do with the “Genocide Olympics” campaign that started a couple of weeks ago and calls for a boycott of the 2007 games because of what the campaigners say is Beijing’s coddling of Khartoum and refusal to put pressure on it to end what is seen as Sudan inspired mass murder in Darfur. We know how super-sensitive China is about boycott calls and this is the one issue that actually has the potential to get some traction. All pure speculation of course, but it certainly bears looking in to……

This is only getting proper attention now because this cause is more popular than Iraq. It took world celebrities outrage, concerts and well publicized meetings with world leaders to put the plight of of these victims on the front page. It took an Olympic boycott threat to get China to put enough pressure on Sudan. The US has laid off Sudan for vague intelligence excuses – like I’ll reveal a terrorist secret if you leave me alone to wipe out Darfur. When economics enters the picture many things start to happen. How many millions have died until sanctions or boycotts have done their job? Will it take a boycott to get China to stop slavery? How can China really condemn Sudan when it is guilty of slavery? Contradictions and hypocracy are still at work here! Make this front page news!
