End The USA's Police State (tags)
Here is evidence of our overwhelming police state and suggestions on how to reverse it.
Our last best chance for freedom from murderous government was the legal system which is today in hopeless shambles, as directed by doj,fbi,cia,nsa and the other fools on the hill. A few links in support:

BofA and its President Brian Moynihan - Public Corruption and Racketeering in Lomas v BofA (tags)
Ongoing tolerance of racketeering by Bank of America makes mockery of laws established by the US Congress in effort to restore the integrity of US financial systems. Real estate and financial institutions fraud under the guise of court actions in the Los Angeles Superior Court goes back for over a decade - a hallmark of the LA-JR (alleged Los Angeles Judiciary Racket).

Senators hammer Gonzales on Ashcroft hospital visit (tags)
Sparking the ire of several members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales claimed on Tuesday that the controversial 2004 hospital visit he made to his predecessor, John Ashcroft, dealt not with the warrantless eavesdropping that the administration has confirmed but with an entirely different program.
Hang Him, hang Him Quick! (tags)
The puppet judiciary of occupied Iraq today announced that Saddam Hussein would be hanged within 30 days. Saddam is presently being tried for the mass murder of Kurdish villagers but the judiciary insisted that he MUST be executed regardless of any other proceedings. This decision is a ‘just in time’ corporate-style decision – just in time for what the uninformed reader would ask? Just in time to save America from incrimination for supplying the chemical weapons and expertise required to kill the innocent Kurdish villagers – that is the REAL NEWS of the day!
Invocation to the democratic forces of the world-wide society. (tags)
Do support Brazilian people, our president Luís Inácio Lula Da Silva, the National Congress and Brazilian Judiciary in our fight so that the national budget pass to be applied in headings foreseen in the law and not deviated to guarantee the delirious enrichment of bankers and moneylenders in damage of the most sacred interests of the nation.

2000 Election Evidence Proving Conspiracy (tags)
Please let the greatest attorney in Philadelphia, Robert F. Simone know that Jeff (aka Wolfie) (aka whizkid) Fisher is going to stop running and present the evidence that he was going to have Congresswoman Maxine Waters give to the House Judiciary Committee. I also want Attorney Willie Brown in San Francisco and Attorney Roger J Rosen in Century City to know that I am thankful for their advice also.
Enabling Fascism: John Conyers is "Not Out To Impeach President" (tags)
While Conyers backs away from impeachment indicating that the allegations of misconduct are not proven, he is also trying to pass a law to stop Bush from illegal wiretapping...a law to force Bush to obey the law. Why is he making it seem as if the case for impeachment over illegal wiretapping has not been made when he knows that Bush has broken the law?
Pelosi is in for a Surprise this November (tags)
Democratic leaders in Congress may be afraid of impeachment, but if Democratic voters oust Republicans in the fall, it will because they want a street fight, not because they want their party to begin compromising with Bush.
Republican Hatchet Man Defends Presidential Crimes (tags)
The Founders of the nation must be rolling in their graves over Sen. Hatch’s claim that the president’s powers should be beyong criticism during the “war” on terror.
Bush Running Scared? (tags)
Little wonder that President Bush is defending his illegal and unconstitutional domestic spying program. He has no alternative but to try to convince the public not to consider him a criminal and a threat to the Republic.
He's already essentially said the old Nixon line, "I am not a crook."
And like Nixon, he is one.
It is becoming increasingly evident not just to liberals but to honest conservatives that unless this president who thinks he's a king is called to account on this and other violations of the Constitution, those "inalienable" rights we've always claimed as a birthright will have been alienated. That means gone the modern vernacular.
Today, the Washington Times, the Fox News of the print world, weighed in with a story in its magazine that claimed the White House is gearing up for an impeachment battle, predicting that even in the current Republican House, there will be an effort to impeach Bush over the NSA spying. The same article said the White House is worried about losing in the Judiciary Committee on that count, but thinks it can manage to get a tie vote.
I find that speculation a bit unlikely at this point, but who knows? The blatant unconstitutionality of this particular presidential transgression, and the fact that he was caught red-handed and had to admit to it, makes it what George Tenet would call a "slam dunk" case.
In a way, though, it would be unfortunate, because other presidential crimes are much worse--his use of 500 "signing documents" to ignore acts of Congress (no wonder the guy never vetoes bills!), his lying to get the country into a war of agression that is bleeding the nation and its youth, his multiple war crimes and his "crime against peace," his gross negligence in not responding to the Katrina disaster or the looming global warming threat...
The list goes on and on. It would be a tragedy if this Constitutional outlaw ended up being brought up just on a charge of illegal spying by a Republican Judiciary Committee, and then battled that one charge to an almost certain win in the full House, and that was the end of it.
Better, I think, to let the charges keep growing through the 2006 campaign year, and then hit him with all of them at once.
Still, it's nice to see the president starting to squirm.

Intelligence Committee in Maneuver to Pass Even Worse PATRIOT Act (tags)
With no announcement, the Senate Intelligence Committee has scheduled a closed door session to approve a version of the Patriot Act that would be even worse than the present act being considered by the Judiciary Committee. The hand of the White House seems to be behind the sneaky maneuver.

Federal Courts and the Imaginary Constitution (tags)
Ridiculous as sodomy laws may be, there clearly is no right to privacy nor sodomy found anywhere in the Constitution. There are, however, states' rights -- and Texas has the right to decide how to regulate sex using local standards.
