Downing St. Memo - anti-BU**SH** animations- LINK Distressed American

Bush urged Americans to show their support for the troops on July 4th by flying flags. Let's make this July 4th. very meaningful. We can NOT afford the COST of BushInc's war.

concerned Scientist -anti- nuclear bunker busing bomb petition LINK

Bu**Sh** INc. wants $8.5 million toward research and development on a "Robust Nuclear Earth Penetrator" (RNEP).
...the nuclear blast and radioactive fall-out could kill millions of innocent people in surrounding areas. A single "bunker buster" would be nearly 100 times more powerful...

when is enough enough?

they just don't get it; ...urge your senators to reject Bush's plan for new nukes,
go here and click "reply" and "send" or you’d like you may edit the message....

Charges dropped against Emily, LINK to DUMP Mike site

"Does anyone know who the guy talking on the cell phone in the last picture on the right side is? Looks like a Secret Service type. Was he directing the local cops to arrest a protester? As in grab anyone, put them under arrest?" from above link- I wondered about that too. If anyone knows how to find out -that would have been interesting.
anyway- NOW there are SO many important issues to focus on, what's a little cruel injustice here an there? This cost a great deal of money for our local community but not even a drop in the bucket when compared to all our stolen capital that BushInc. is sqaundering, to win "at any cost" to US!
Now he wants a buckets of our non-earned capital to pay for NUCLEAR Bunker Busting Bombs- guess he wants to get ready for Iran.

Emily goes on trial today. Posted by Hello

More photos of Westfield, NJ protest and brutal unjustified arrests

Harsh reality of dissent. Take care Emily!  Posted by Hello this happend when BushInc. brought his bogus Town Hall road show concerning the privitizing Social security, to my town last March.
She did nothing wrong, she was expressing her sincere concern. She wasn't even standing out from the crowd in any way, Just snatched from behind the baricade. She had been holding a small cloth banner.
Her trial begins on Monday. I can't beleive it wasn't just dismissed.
The BushInc.'s use of intimidation and lust for revenge seems to have even trickleg down to my town.

I wonder who that SS guy was talking too?

Above link will take you to an interesting article concerning both; Rove and Sen. Durbin 's recent comments.
The Rove speech put down a marker for any U.S. political figure who dares criticize aspects of Bush’s war policies. Dissenters will be accused of endangering American troops – as sure a way as can be imagined to throttle a public debate.

Like I say it is all about intimidation and attack. Honesty is not a part of the game plan- and must be suppressed. the Bu**Sh**INc. plays dirty dodge ball, and they want to win "at any cost" to US.

Support Sen. Durbin's painfully true and brave statement, petition LINK

I am so sick of the way members of the BushInc. and GOP have distorted and lied about many statements by democrats and/or libs; including Senator Durbin. Please read the actual staement in context for yourself, and them please sign the above linked petition. Take a stand against the constant attacks of the far right against anyone who dares to speak the truth. they mount that vicious attacks to distract US from the harsh relaities, and to intimidate US!

"We the undersigned, endorse the following petition:
Support For Floor Statement by Senator Richard Durbin On Guantanamo Bay
Target: Bill Frist Majority Leader United States Senate"

"I hope we will learn from history. I hope we will change course.
The President could declare the United States will apply the Geneva Conventions to the
war on terrorism. He could declare, as he should, that the United States will not, under any circumstances, subject any detainee to torture, or cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment. The administration could give all detainees a meaningful opportunity to challenge their detention before a neutral decision maker. Such a change of course would dramatically improve our image and it would make us safer. I hope this administration will choose that course. If they do not, Congress must step in.
The issue debated in the press today misses the point. The issue is not about closing
Guantanamo Bay. It is not a question of the address of these prisoners. It is a question of how we treat these prisoners. To close down Guantanamo and ship these prisoners off to undisclosed locations in other countries, beyond the reach of publicity, beyond the reach of any surveillance, is to give up on the most basic and fundamental commitment to justice and fairness, a commitment we made when we signed the Geneva Convention and said the United States accepts it as the law of the land, a commitment which we have made over and over again when it comes to the issue of
torture. To criticize the rest of the world for using torture and to turn a blind eye to what we are doing in this war is wrong, and it is not American." - Sen. Richard Durbin

Fire Karl Rove petition LINK please read and sign.

Three days after the terrorist attacks (on 911), the Senate voted 98-0 and the House voted 420-1 for a resolution authorizing Bush to use "all necessary and appropriate force" against those responsible for the terrorism.
After the votes, Bush said in a statement: "I am gratified that the Congress has united so powerfully by taking this action. It sends a clear message — our people are together, and we will prevail."
Rove was speaking about reactions after 911 , so HE either LIED! or has no memory and/or no clue. He is irresponsible, meanspirited and should be sacked.

The real problem is BushInc. DID NOT fullfil their end of the 'deal', they used it as an excuse to advance a preconceived agenda that has increased misery and terroirsm throughout our world!

the above petiton is geared toward bloggers, but anyone can sign- the term net-roots is a take on grass-roots -using the internet. PLEASE sign!

slick easy brief DSM flick followed by petition link here.

This link might be good, for especially for those who don't get it yet. Same petition as below-so take your pick and share the link that you think folks you know will appreciate and respond to. Got to keep it cooking.

CALL for full congressional hearings on DSM! new petition LINK

"The British government memo ("the Downing Street Memo") suggests a sickening truth: that the Bush administration was determined to go to war all along -- even if it had to fix the facts to convince the American people.
We've got to act. We must make sure Congress gets the memo because Americans deserve to know the truth. Join me and demand that Congress hold hearings about the Downing Street Memo to determine whether the Bush administration misled us into war:"

Because if not it may just be killed in committee. I'm sure we all agree that we have a right to find out the full truth. Truth is a NON_PARTISAN issue.or at least it should be.
And if LIES were made - it is a very serious matter. Even the BushInc. shouldn't allow this to hang over his head, better to have the truth come out.
RIGHT?? ALL AGREE? OK so sign away! may add comments

When we lose our freedoms, when our economy is in ruins, and our quality of life...

March on Washington DC  Posted by Hello
... is sinking (think about our schools, environment, health care etc.) have the terrorist won? The terrorist that lives in the big Whitehouse where the prostitute roved has won- in some ways; Fuelling Terror
This is not really anything new-but it is all the more disturbing- how little attention this receives in our mainstream media; the Iron Triangle / war profiteers-Carlyle Group- the BushInc., Saudi Royals
According to a new report from the Arms Trade Resource Center based at World Policy Institute,New York,
United States has increased Arms supplies and sales to some of the World's most "Repressive and undemocratic regimes".These supplies are playing a fuelling role in world's burning conflicts like, Uzbekistan,Chad,Angola,Ethiopia,Colombia,Afghanistan. The report also claims that "Foreign Military Fund"(FMF-US's largest military aid program)is now touching the 6.0 Billion dollar mark,mostly provided to the countries where human rights violation is a common practice(and US law prohibits any arms deals with any such country).
So;in situation like this there rises a question in the mind of all those, believing in the welfare of the world that,is "Super Power" ending the terror or fueling it? Really it is time to ACT! More information will be coming on a march on WDC to say NO MORE BU**SH**! something has to be done concerning; so many lies, that have brought so much harm, to so many people.

More to do! RE: the Downing Street Memo LINK

This letter/petition from the People's E-mail Network - will send your 'vote' (to support investigations into the Downing St. Memo and related information) to your senators and congress person plus; the Washington Post, New York Times, ABC Nightline, NBC Nightly News, CBS Evening News, ABC Evening News and CNN. You can add your own comments.
Please do this, because it is absolutely incredible how much power these evil people have. They will try to pressure enough folks- especially the GOP members,to NOT allow any honest inquiry into these matters. We must NOT allow them to negate this to many people have worked and have taken risk. No turning back now, no letting up. They need our support.

I AM campaign / and check out the UPDATED LINK

A friend told me that Pagan American Community is also encouraging a post card capaign -an I AM campaign- hey it's all good, in many ways; many of US are struggling with the same big issue;

I am who I am I am my own special creation....
so come take a look give me the hook or the ovation.
It's MY world that I want to take a little pride in
My world and it's not a place I have to hide in
Your life is a sham til you can say
Hey world I am what I am! (from La Cage...)

Don't you remember those cool ads I AM an American! , I guess some folks don't get it. It is a way of saying- just that I Am and I count.-
One fanatic complained saying that's God's name- the comment was just really silly- because that would only matter to a fanatic, because even most religious folks would get it, and it would be completely irrelavant to a pagan. God's name could be Howdy Doody- or Santa Claus.

I think this I AM campaign at this point could include everyone who cares enough to speak up- NOT just pagans- because when folks are discriminated against-when bigotry is becoming an acceptable sport (gender, race, ethnicity or religious -gay, racial minority, French, pagan, Muslim) it's just immoral, and should be considered un-American. Remember that entire dutch community who defied the FASCIST, by wearing the symbols for Jewish people on their shirts as a sign of solidarity?

Really it is kind of like the Election Fraud thing too- MY VOTE did NOT count- we were ALL disenfranchised- even republicans. Because it was wrong, and yes if a dem had won and I found out it was unquestionably a FRAUD I would likely even be more angry!

We all should count. Tell them!

BushInc. lied to the Brits about the use of Napalm

Many of us will never forget the terrible picture of the screaming children running, who had been burned by Napalm during the Vietnam War! BushInc. has told so many painful and embaressing lies. It is finally time for US to discover and sadly learn painful lessons concerning, the full truth, and put this entire shameful and sad episode of US history, behind US ASAP.

Despite persistent rumours of injuries among Iraqis consistent with the use of incendiary weapons such as napalm, Adam Ingram, the Defence minister, assured Labour MPs in January that US forces had not used a new generation of incendiary weapons, codenamed MK77, in Iraq.
But Mr Ingram admitted to the Labour MP Harry Cohen in a private letter obtained by The Independent that he had inadvertently misled Parliament because he had been misinformed by the US. "The US confirmed to my officials that they had not used MK77s in Iraq at any time and this was the basis of my response to you," he told Mr Cohen. "I regret to say that I have since discovered that this is not the case and must now correct the position."
link to article above.

On July 4th! Our patriotic duty will be to honor

our troops by keeping truth alive! The BushInc. lies are the meanest form of desecration.
The above link takes you to an article in the Stars and Stripes.
One gold star mom said “The only way we can understand how we’ve come to this disastrous position is to find out what the truth is.” another "...I don’t sleep well. My son died for a lie"

95% of the respondents to a recent MSNBC poll concerning the Iraq war (and the DSM ) indicated they believed Bush LIED!

"White House refuses to respond to ...122 congressional...."NY TIMEs

My husband has always been a republican. Not all republicans are fanatics, nor do they all condone lying, the destruction of our environment, and our economy, and so much more devastation wrought by the BushInc. and their reconstructionist's mandates. Posted by Hello
''Quite frankly, evidence that appears to be building up, points to whether or not the president has deliberately misled Congress to make the most important decision a president has to make, going to war,'' Rep. Charles Rangel of New York, senior Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee, said earlier at the event on Capitol Hill.
"Misleading Congress is an impeachable offense..."
from above NY times link. Impeachable that's what you are BU**SH**INC.! Don't let them forget it!

Time line LINK WE need to know and understand.

read this before -great passage April 2001!
"Cheney's energy task force takes interest in Iraq's oil. Strategic Energy Policy Challenges For The 21st Century describes America's "biggest energy crisis in its history." It targets Saddam as a threat to American interests because of his control of Iraqi oilfields and recommends the use of 'military intervention.'
The report is linked to a veritable who's who of US hawks, oilmen and corporate bigwigs. Commissioned by James Baker, the former US Secretary of State under Bush Sr., it was submitted to Vice-President Dick Cheney in April 2001 -- a full five months before September 11. It advocated a policy of using military force against an enemy such as Iraq to secure US access and control of Middle Eastern oil fields." (Sunday Herald)

Of course remember Baker also represents the Carlyle Group and the Saudis, who also are heavily invested in OUR defense industry! So war was a win-win situation for them- but of course meant great losses for US! But like BU**SH**Inc. said "at any COST"!!!

Do you think Bush misled US to war? MSNBC poll

In spite of all the lies, under reporting and dirty games being played constantly, by the extrmeist that have taken over the GOP and MSNBC poll is showing 94-96 % of the respondents fell BushInc. lied in order to lead US to war! they also have some pretty good information.

Dr. Howard Dean speaks for me! Vote of confidence/petition

"To: Democrats in U.S. Congress (link above)
Recently some Democrats in Congress have chastised Governor Howard Dean, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, saying that he does not speak for the party.
We the undersigned have a simple message we would like to convey to you:
Howard Dean Speaks For Me
And, we respectfully request that you refrain from public criticism of your fellow Democrats and that you begin to speak for us as well"

I have written my opinion on this a few posts down as well! We don't need our dems being repubs' lite. We need them to vigorously resist the right wing extremist, that are dominating the GOP and their destructive agenda. Hopefully moderate republicans will join them to help fully restore democracy in the USA and rescue the Grand Old Party as well. Their are some conservatives who believe in honesty and democracy.

"Biggest Story" Awesome post LINK here from a new blog

I set this blog up as a shared blog from amongst friends -but this post is not mine- I'm not that good of a writer, better at linking- everyone should REALLY read this entire peice; it is AWESOME!
"The biggest story since 9/11
The Downing Street Memo talks about early discussion with the UK concerning the invasion of Iraq. Naturally, the evidence again supports the conclusion that Bush had intended to invade Iraq from very early on in his administration, and was willing to exploit 9/11 to accomplish his goal....
President Bush has lied to us all, and has pushed what appears to be an imperial or crusading agenda on the world behind the guise of the war on terror. It is an open and shut case.

What are you going to do about it?

My trip to WDC see pics below NO BU**SH** zone! store link - profits to be donated.

I was in Washington DC last Thursday and Friday to support The Rush Holt Bill 550 which is considered the Gold Standard by the folks at Voter's Unite, Verified Voting, Vote Trust USA and Common Cause, and many other ordinary yet informed concerned citizens like myself.
While helping to lobby for the bill I had to be objective, clear, sincere and not cloud the issue. No using the F word, and definately not the I word. I did not wear my Impeach Bush, No BU**SH** or Fraud shirts or pins while lobbying.

Om my own time I did find some time to take in a few sights, and took a few pictures promote the Orange post card capaign.
Now that protest are planned for this week to encourage the BU**SH**Inc. to answer the questions concerning the Downing ST. Memo, get congress to act on it, and the media to be more responsible concerning reporting on critical issues more fully and factually, I would encourage everyone to SEND those post cards!!! Send them to the media and your congress folks. We know the truth but so many other people, even liberal minded people, who are just very busy, have NO clue. They just catch the news on the fly, so they hear about Michael Jackson and other nonsensical crap, because it is constantly repeated, but very little of the important issues.
If you can attend one of the ralleys in NYC or WDC GREAT! but if not (or even if you do) Don't forget to send postcards! Thanks!

U.S. Toll in Iraq Pushes Past 1,700
By PAUL GARWOOD, Associated Press Writer
BAGHDAD, Iraq - The military announced the killing of four more U.S. soldiers over the weekend, pushing the American death toll past 1,700 - more than double what it was a year ago. Since last June 13 - when 825 members of the U.S. military had died in Iraq - the insurgency that took shape with the fall of Saddam Hussein has increased its toll on American forces and Iraqi soldiers and civilians alike."

London Times reports a new memo..
dated July 23, 2002, stated that because "regime change was illegal" BushInc. determeined it “necessary to create the conditions” which would make it legal. (that sounds pretty illegal to me)
"MINISTERS were warned in July 2002 that Britain was committed to taking part in an American-led invasion of Iraq and they had no choice but to find a way of making it legal. ...Tony Blair had already agreed to back military action to get rid of Saddam Hussein at a summit at the Texas ranch of President George W Bush three months earlier".
Rep. John Conyers (link to petiton above) letter to Bush, has now written to Dearlove (former MI6 chief) and questioning if he believes "intelligence was being “fixed” around the policy", and if Bush and Blair they agreed to “manufacture” the UN ultimatum in order to justify the war.

Rep. Conyers and other Democratic congressmen plan to hold an inquiry this Thursday with witnesses including Joe Wilson, the American former ambassador who went to Niger to investigate if Sadam had been attempting to buy uranium ore for developing nuclear weapons.
As a reminder it was Joe Wilson's CIA agent wife Valerie Palme that outed and endangered, by the BushInc. leaking classified information apparently via the White house whore/chore boy to Bob Novak. This sordid and immoral tale in itself would seem to be ample grounds for an impeachment inquiry IMHO.
