Killing the US Constitution

I'm currently watching the Senate debate of how much of the US Constitution to gut.

From the sound of things, the torture bill will pass. Before it passes, the Sentate will pretend a while longer to debate amendments for the bill.

The Habeas Corpus amendment was voted down. In this Amendment, a prisoner in US Military custody would have the right to appeal to a court to review the case against him. Under the new bill, a prisoner has no access to a court, an attorney, does not need to know why he is being held and does not have the right to face his accuser.

Further, the US Military can arbitrary decide whom to arrest, and for what reasons. Once they do so, they can detain that person forever, wherever they want and can torture that person at will. They never need to tell anyone whom they arrested, why they arrested them or where they are holding that person. They never need produce that person to a court, ever. they can keep that person forever, without ever bringing charges or accusing that person of a crime.

So our enemies amd people that might be living in the wrong place at the wrong time, need to understand that once captured, the US Military will detain you and torture you to the end of your days. You may never be released or see your family again.

This decision by our legislature, is designed to inspire fear of the US Military. And you should be afraid now. If our President wants you picked up, you will be tortured, you will be lost in the system, you will become disappeared.

It doesn't matter whome you are, the Great Decider will have the final authority in determing what your rights are, and whether the US Military will grant you any.

So speak out against the Republican Party at your own peril. They are about to be hadned the right to detain and torture anyone they see fit.

It's a new era we're entering. The Rule of Law will be decided and invented on the fly, by the Great Decider. Cross the Great Decider and you may spend the rest of your days being tortured.

As I've listened, the amendment to require that the US Military report on whom they are holding and how they are treated, has been voted down. Secret Prisons and Secret Prisons will become legal if this bill is passed.

Now they are debating whether this bill should be permanent or should have a sunset provision.

Torture, It's Not Just For Witches Anymore

Those that are pro-torture are arguing that torture is an effective means to gain information and confession from suspected terrorists. And unfortunately it is highly effective.

And through the centuries torture has been used to extract confessions from people for a wide variety of crimes. For instance, from the Middle Ages on, torture was an effective means to extract confessions from heretics. It was found that hundreds of thousands of people had sexual relations with Satan, or at least were guilty of worshipping him and cavorting with him.

Had it not been for torture, the witch hunts of the Middle Ages, the Spanish Inquisition and the Witch Trials of Salem would’ve come of empty. Hundreds of thousands of Satan’s worshippers would’ve escaped judgment for their sins. Think of the historical significance of this great purging of evil and the good that was done in torturing evil witches, warlocks, heretics and Gnostics. Whole villages were found to be dens of Satan and this scourge was wiped off the face of the planet.

So next time someone tells you that torture is wrong, ask them what kind of world we’d have today, if we hadn’t tortured witches to death over the centuries. Point out that without torture, people won’t normally confess to being witches or terrorists. Torture is the best tool in our toolbox for fighting the worship of Satan and Terrorism.

And why stop with terrorism. We know witches are back in vogue and their numbers are rising. Write your Congressman and explain that the torture legislation doesn’t need to be limited, but expanded. Explain that it’s time to bring back the good old days when Church and State fought against Satan’s evils using torture and public executions. Let’s expand the torture legislation to include the use of it in divining witches and seeking out their covens where ever they may be found.

Someone that you know and love, might be a witch. It might be you. Don’t you want to be tortured so that society can find out for sure?

Think of the warm glow of safety that Christians will be able to enjoy, as they bask in the pyres of heathens. As they enjoy fried chicken, Rock and Roll and a cool beer, to the screams of their friends and neighbors, as they burn to death on the village green.

Write your Congressman today. Ask that the torture legislation be expanded to include witches. Let's bring back some of that Old Time Religion!

The Divination of Witches

Waterboarding, our newest weapon in the fight against terrorism has a long a colorful history. It's been used for centuries to successfully extract confessions from witches and other enemies of whatever power structure was in control.

Through the use of waterboarding, many thousands of witches, warlocks and other heretics have confessed to the their crimes, and put given their proper due. And for such a heinous crime such as witchcraft, torture is the only means by which to reliably extract a confession. After all, a fake Christian that has been having sex with Satan is unlikely to admit it, except under extreme distress. A real Christian will die before betraying his or her faith under extreme torture.

Here's Wikipedia on WaterBoarding

In the medieval form of waterboarding, a victim was strapped to a board and tipped back or lowered into a body of water until he or she believed that drowning was imminent. The subject was then removed from the water and revived. If necessary the process was repeated.

Although in a technical sense there are actually several other forms of water-based interrogation, all variants have in common that the victim reliably almost drowns but is rescued or re-animated by his captor just before death occurs. The technique is designed to be both psychological and physical. The psychological effect is inherent in the fact that the victim is given to understand that he shall be killed outright by dint of enforced drowning unless his cooperation as demanded is indeed produced promptly. This perception reinforces the interrogator's control and gives the victim sound cause to experience mortal fear.

The physical effects are extreme pain and damage to the lungs, brain damage caused by oxygen deprivation and sometimes broken bones because of the restraints applied to the struggling victim. The psychological effects can be long lasting.

The history and success in waterboarding witches, clearly makes this torture technique a reliable means to divine whether someone is a terrorist or not.

And besides, after we buy a suspected terrorist from some third world para-military unit for up to a million dollars, you can bet that person is guilty. Just like in the old days, when witches were given up for ransoms.

Of course, once we have a suspect, it's clear the suspect is guilty, unless he or she dies under torture, of course. So torturing a witch or a terrorism suspect is perfectly reasonable and such evil people, clearly don't merit kind treatment.

And why stop with waterboarding. There were many other tortures employed to successfully divine whether a person was a witch or not. Why not use them on suspected terrorists?

We could bring back thumbscrews, the rack, iron maidens, painful amputations, immolations, rats, dogs, etc... Think of the fun the Bush crew could have thinking up new ways to make people confess to terrorism.

And why stop there? We could bring back witchcraft trials too. Public dunkings, hangings, beheadings and immolations, could be a wonderful way to bring people back to the Lord. Church attendance would skyrocket as people rediscover their faith in God.

Isn't it about time we burned another witch or even a terrorist at the stake?

It's time to show the world what a beacon for kindness, love and hope we are, by ridding our population of evil people, by torturing them to death in public. Isn't that after all where we are going with this slippery slope?

Bush Asks For Help In Building His Vision Of Clusterfuck!

From the, "You Can't Make This Crap up", files.
Previewing the speech for reporters, Hadley said Bush will discuss how establishing democracies in the Middle East has "an important part to play to give the people in the region a vision of hope and opportunity and a better future."

"He will also ... emphasize the fact that countries need to find their way toward free and just societies in their own time, consistent with their own culture and traditions," Hadley said.

And Bush will "showcase" what the administration sees as positive results from its "freedom agenda," "the most remarkable being the processes of freedom and democracy going on in Iraq, Afghanistan and Lebanon," according to Hadley.

Is Dictator Bush is going before the UN to demonstrate that he's the stupidest man alive? Or does he actually love and cherish the carnage? I think it's both.

George Bush: Mistaken

Matt Lauer And George Bush

This is an excellent Video segment on Crooks And Liars.

What we need to understand when watching our President in action is that Alberto Gonzales has advised the President that in times of war, laws and the US Constitution hold no power over him.

Bush has been informed and believes that he can create laws at a whim and that laws he doesn't like, don't apply to him. Even the US Constitution doesn't apply to him.

How do we know this is his position? Well, they've been telling us this is the case.

Tim Ryan Rocks!

Celebrating 9/11

The media gala, celebrating the destruction of the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001, appears to have reached incredible heights.

It's a chance to parade victims, celebrities and politicians across the screens of American Television. And interspersed in this odd affair of wallowing in the destruction, we have commercials for cars and shampoo.

I'm surprised that 9/11 hasn't become a holiday yet. A chance for the whole nation to celebrate the deaths of thousands of Americans. I imagine it might just become one. Will we exchange gifts, or gather our families together for a turkey or ham dinner?

And why do we continue to wallow in 9/11 and ignore the Oklahoma City bombing?

It's because it's good politics. The politics of fear as the elections come closer in November. A chance to remind the public that they are safe, but in incredible danger. That we are being protected, but nothing can protect us. A chance once again to help us learn through incessant fearmongering, how we should vote in November.

What The Hell Is About To Happen?

Tony Blair Resigns

We're getting our asses kicked in Afghanistan.

Pakistan makes a deal with Al Queda and The Taliban.

Bush says that, yeah, I've been breaking a bunch of laws by keeping secret prisons.

Bush continues to exhort with ever increasing stridency that we must be afraid!

Is something about to happen that they know about already?

Pakistan Gives Weapons and Amnesty to Bin Laden

I imagine we can't do much about this. Pakistan has nukes and has a history of sharing nuclear technology. Further, Pakistan is one of our solid allies in the 'War On Terror'.

Bush: CIA kept terror suspects in secret prisons

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush on Wednesday for the first time acknowledged the use of secret CIA prisons outside U.S. borders to hold top suspects captured in the war on terrorism.

We've seen reports that Pakistan is one of the countries in which we keep these secret prisons. Further we've heard eyewitness accounts from Canadians and Australians that were renditioned there, telling us that they were systematically tortured.

Now it looks like we're going to try to get prisoners out of Pakistan, before Pakistan relseases them to the Taliban and Al Quaeda. What if Dictator Bush doesn't get his prisoners back?

Is the US experiencing a break with one of it's major allies in the war on terror? We've known that Pakistan has been privately allied with terrorist groups, that it has nuclear weapons, and that it has been sharing nuclear technology with rogue states. But as long as that was under the covers, we didn't seem to mind that Pakistan was on both sides of the 'War On Terror'.

Perhaps this latest episode will signal a shift in relations between Dictator Bush and his best buddy Dictator Musharraf?

What they meant to say was...

This is absolutely fabricated, absurd. I never said this," Maj Gen Shaukat Sultan told The Associated Press, referring to an ABC News broadcast aired hours earlier.

The ABC report cited Sultan as saying in a telephone interview that al-Qaida chief bin Laden "would not be taken into custody" if found, "as long as one is being like a peaceful citizen." Sultan's recorded comments were included in the report, but it was not immediately clear whether he understood that bin Laden was the specific subject of discussion at that point in the interview. Sultan told the AP by phone that "what they are saying on Osama is absolutely fabricated."

"Pakistan is committed to its policy on the war on terror, and Osama, caught anywhere in Pakistan, would be brought to justice," he said.

Some 9/11 Hijackers Are Still Alive

Despite engaging in a successful suicide missions, some of the 9/11 hijackers are still living out their lives, free from prosecution.

Another of the men named by the FBI as a hijacker in the suicide attacks on Washington and New York has turned up alive and well.

The identities of four of the 19 suspects accused of having carried out the attacks are now in doubt.

Saudi Arabian pilot Waleed Al Shehri was one of five men that the FBI said had deliberately crashed American Airlines flight 11 into the World Trade Centre on 11 September.

His photograph was released, and has since appeared in newspapers and on television around the world.

Now he is protesting his innocence from Casablanca, Morocco.

54 Percent Of Americans Say They Will Vote For Terrorists In November

If you ask Joe Leiberman, Donald Rumsfield, Rush Limbaugh and many others, people who do not support the President of the Unitied States One Hundred and Ten Percent are terrorist sympathisers. These are people who want to see Osama Bin Laden win.

In the 1990s, these same people hated our President and in those years, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and even George Bush jr, were terrorists.

Now 54% of Americans are terrorists and hate America. And their ranks keep growing.

When is Donald Rumsfield going to declare war on these people and have them killed for being terrorists and hating America?

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Most Americans are angry about "something" when it comes to how the country is run, and they are more likely than in previous years to vote for a challenger this November, a new poll suggests.

A majority of Americans surveyed -- and a higher percentage than recorded during the same time last year -- said things in the United States are going "badly." Among this year's respondents, 29 percent said "pretty badly" and 25 percent -- up from 15 percent a month ago -- answered "very badly." By comparison, 37 percent described the way things are going as "fairly well," and 9 percent answered "very well."


Only 21 percent said they were "generally content" in the latest poll.

Nine percent said they considered the economy to be "very good," a number unchanged from a June CNN poll. But the number who considered conditions "somewhat good" dropped from 42 percent to 35 percent over the same period.


Victory Is At Hand Again!

Once again, we are about to declare victory against the Taliban.

These recurring themes of victory as we repeat popular battles, is sure to have the public rejoicing in our conquests.

NATO: We have Taliban cornered

KABUL, Afghanistan (Reuters) -- NATO said on Tuesday its major offensive to crush a revitalized Taliban in southern Afghanistan is pushing the guerrillas into a corner as heavy fighting continues.

Official Dictatorship in America

This meme needs to catch on before the elections.

We need to stop referring to him as our president and and start using the word dictator in conversations and writings. Let the Republicans spend their time making up new meanings for words, we can continue to use word in context of well known meanings.

We know what a dictator is and we know what Bush is. If Bush were president, he'd be bound by laws, but he tells us he isn't. He holds the power of the presidency, the legislature and the justic department. He is a dictator.
