THE TRUTH SHALL PREVAIL, IT'S THE AMERICAN WAY, OR IS IT? WE'RE ABOUT TO FIND OUT, SHORTLY, I'M AFRAID. THE COUNTDOWN'S BEGUN: LESS THAN 2 YEARS TO GO

QUOTE:

A Republic, If We Can Keep It.

Ernest Partridge

Bush’s “National Continuity Policy, issued May 9, states,
in effect, that in the event of a “catastrophic emergency,”
which might mean a terrorist attack or natural disaster,
within "the homeland” or abroad, the President could, as
a “unitary executive,” seize near dictatorial powers. This
means that another hurricane of Katrina size, or a
Richter-7 earthquake, or even a massive civil disobedient
protest, could trigger the onset of a Bush dictatorship.

Bush In Free Fall

By Robert Scheer

At what point will President Bush finally grasp the enormous
disaster that the neoconservatives, from Vice President
Dick Cheney on down, have visited upon his presidency?
Or, to put it numerically, just how does a president descend
from a 92 percent approval rating one month after 9/11-the
highest of any president since modern polling began-to the
two-thirds disapproval score that has stalked him through
the last year, thanks to the Iraq debacle, without getting
the message? Continue

Is the US Preparing To Attack Pakistan?

By Eric Margolis

The Bush Administration may be preparing to lash out at old
ally Pakistan, which Washington now blames for its humiliating
failures to crush al-Qaida, capture its elusive leaders, or defeat
Taliban resistance forces in Afghanistan. One is immediately
reminded of the Vietnam War when the Pentagon, unable to
defeat North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong forces, urged
invasion of Cambodia. Continue

Democracy Interrupted

By Frank J. Ranelli

Why we as a nation, have been titrated, which is the gradual
increasing of dosage, pressure, and propaganda, till the desired
effect – an inured and compliant society – have willingly
bequeathed away our autonomy of self-government,
embraced the genesis of tyranny, and begin our seemingly
inexorable march towards dictatorship. Continue

John Conyers Is No Martin Luther King

By Ray McGovern

I have seldom been so disappointed with someone I had
previously held in high esteem. And before leaving, I told
him so. Throwing salt in our wounds, he had us, and some
fifty others in his anteroom arrested and taken out of action
as the Capitol Police “processed” us for the next six hours.

Agency of Rogues

By Chalmers Johnson

The secret prison was set up on a secure U.S. Naval base
outside the U.S. and so beyond the slightest recourse to
legal oversight. It was there that the CIA clandestinely
brought its "suspects" to be interrogated, abused, and
tortured. Continue

Media Spin on Iraq
We’re Leaving (Sort of)

By Norman Solomon

The matter of U.S. bases in Iraq is a prime example of how
events on Capitol Hill have scant effects on war machinery
in the context of out-of-control presidential power. “The
House voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday to bar permanent
United States military bases in Iraq,” the New York Times
reports. But the war makers in the nation's capital still hold
the whip that keeps lashing the dogs of war. Continue

What Harry Reid Doesn't Know About His Own Bill

"Exit" Amendment Would Leave Troops in Iraq Indefinitely

By Tina Richards

I attended the MoveOn.org rally on Tuesday night where
Speaker Pelosi and Leader Reid discussed how they were going
to "end the war" and "bring our troops home" with the
Levin-Reed Amendment. When I asked if they meant all the
troops, I was quickly told to, "shut up" and muscled aside
by security. Continue

OBAMA HAILS A UNICORN

Ann Coulter

Fox News ought to buy a copy of Monday's Democrat debate
on CNN to play over and over during the general election
campaign. For now, the Democratic candidates need to
appeal only to their nut-base. So on Monday night, the
candidates casually spouted liberal conspiracy theories
that would frighten normal Americans, but are guaranteed
to warm the hearts of losers blogging from their mother's
basements.
