Food for thought
“Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”
— Nazi Reich Marshal Hermann Göring during the Nuremberg Trials.

Seeing as how I am the moderator, I could let this slide. I wanted this group to be about news of the polotics that have slipped through the cracks to see the truth about this adminastration. However, with this post I will advertize some of my art, I made a political shirt and I think some people on this list may like it. If people on this list have a dissagreement with me doing this, I will take it down and never do it again.
We now return us to the regularly schedualed group. Current Mood: accomplished

U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor ruled that the NSA's surveillance of phone and internet communication without warrents "violates the separation of powers doctrine, the Administrative Procedures Act, the First and Fourth amendments to the United States Constitution, the FISA and Title III."
She went on to say that "the president of the United States ... has undisputedly violated the Fourth in failing to procure judicial orders.
She has ordered that the NSA is "permanently enjoined from directly or indirectly utilizing the Terrorist Surveillance Program (TSP) in any way, including, but not limited to, conducting warrantless wiretaps of telephone and Internet communications, in contravention of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and Title III,"

Lyrics are posted in this Fox News story:http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,193259,00.html
Along with the lyrics the recording includes clips of Bush saying things like,
"War is my last choice","The wiretap requires a court order",
"Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction",
"all I can tell you is Ossama Bin Laden is a prime suspect",
"Saddam Hussein protects terrorists including members of Al Quida",
"There is a direct connection between September 11th and Saddam Hussein",
"I want justice dead or alive",
"We're going to smoke them out and bring 'em up",
"The patriot act makes sure constitutional gaurantees are in place",
"though it is true we have not found any evidence of weapons of mass destruction no one can now doubt the word of America"

Happy 4th--let's liberate ourselves from this traitorous administration ...
Murray Waas does it again, a real journalist! And it’s way past time for Bush to fire himself (as he said he would do), for too many impeachable offenses to mention here ... in this case, it seems that he actually admitted to being the source of the leak of the outing a covert CIA agent, which is an act of treason. An agent who, by the way, was working on tracking nuclear-related activities in Iran … how convenient … http://news.nationaljournal.com/articles/0703nj1.htm
“Bush Directed Cheney To Counter War Critic”
By Murray Waas, National Journal

President Bush told the special prosecutor in the CIA leak case that he directed Vice President Dick Cheney to personally lead an effort to counter allegations made by former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV that his administration had misrepresented intelligence information to make the case to go to war with Iraq, according to people familiar with the president's statement.
Bush told prosecutors he directed Cheney to disclose classified information that would not only defend his administration but also discredit Wilson.
Bush also told federal prosecutors during his June 24, 2004, interview in the Oval Office that he had directed Cheney, as part of that broader effort, to disclose highly classified intelligence information that would not only defend his administration but also discredit Wilson, the sources said.( rest of articleCollapse )

ALERT to CA VOTERS!!
New ID System May Block Voters
A statewide database has rejected [up to 43% of] otherwise valid registrations because of computer glitches or slight discrepancies in the spelling of names.
By Jordan Rau, Times Staff Writer
March 29, 2006
SACRAMENTO — Thousands of Californians who register to vote or update their records may not receive sample ballots or be able to vote as absentees because of the state's new method of verifying identities, election officials say.
A new statewide database designed by Secretary of State Bruce McPherson to authenticate voter registrations has blocked otherwise valid registrations because of computer glitches, slight discrepancies in spelling or incomplete applications.
The problems have required registrars to contact voters — a time-consuming process that is already taxing some counties facing elections next month.
San Diego County is racing to rectify rejected registrations in time for the April 11 special election to fill the seat vacated by convicted Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham.
"We're working overtime to get these voters cleared," said Tim McNamara, assistant registrar of voters in that county.
In Los Angeles County, the database rejected 14,629 people — 43% of those who registered from Jan. 1 to March 15. Officials are trying to resolve the problems in time for municipal elections April 11 in 14 cities in the county. They say the challenge will be far larger for the June 6 primary, which will involve many more voters.
In any election, voters whose registrations are in dispute have to cast provisional ballots, which are not counted until authorities determine that the voter is legitimate.( rest of LA Times articleCollapse )

I'm doing phone banking for Busby tonight in 50th District election. Others doing the same might want to be able to help voters by having the following web site handy to help them locate where they are supposed to vote, and ask for a provisional ballot when they get there, if they aren't "registered".

Hold this administration accountable!!! Congressional censure, impeachment resolutions
On March 13, 2006, Senator Russ Feingold introduced a resolution to censure President Bush for his illegal and unconstitutional spying on Americans and those in this country as a possible first step toward impachment [http://feingold.senate.gov/censureresolution.pdf]
. And 30 members of the House of Representatives--along with more than 42,000 signatures from American citizens--have submitted HR 365 to create a Select Committee to look into the grounds for recommending President Bush’s impeachment [http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/?q=node/8799]
Meantime, Republicans keep with their nasty, mean-spirited, and evil rhetoric by saying that Feingold and others calling for accountability on this administration as 'siding with the terrorists.' I wonder why the Republicans, from the President on down, have no respect for the Constitution and the law, and why anyone in this country--Republican OR Democrat--could tolerate that position for one second.

Censuring the President
by Senator Russ Feingold
Mon Mar 13, 2006 at 09:41:44 AM PDT
Like all Americans, I woke up on the morning of September 11th, 2001 as though it was simply another day. The horrific events that unfolded made it anything but, and our lives were changed forever. In the days after 9/11, I was proud to stand with the President in strong support of the authorization to use force against those who attacked us. During those days our President showed great leadership. Politics were put aside, the country pulled together and for a brief time we were united.
In the four-plus years since, everything changed. The President exploited the climate of anxiety, misusing the trust he was given in the wake of the attacks on 9/11 to, among other things, grab intrusive powers in the Patriot Act, and take us into a war in Iraq that has been a diversion from the critical fight against terrorism.
Serious questions remain about certain provisions in the Patriot Act that threaten the privacy of innocent Americans, and about the basis for the claims the administration made in leading us into the Iraq war. In both of those instances, Congress gave its approval to the President's actions, however mistaken that approval may have been.
That was not the case with the illegal domestic wiretapping program authorized by the President shortly after September 11th. The President violated the law, ignored the Constitution and two branches of government, and disregarded the rights and freedoms upon which our country was founded. No one questions whether the government should wiretap terrorists -- of course we should, and we can under current law. But the President is refusing to follow that law, which includes safeguards to protect innocent Americans, and instead he's making up his own law. It's time that he is held accountable for breaking the law.
Congress may consider a range of other actions, including investigations, an independent counsel, or even impeachment. But at a minimum, and as a first step, Congress should censure a president who has so plainly broken the law.
Today I will introduce a Senate resolution censuring the President.
The facts and the case for censure are clear. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA, makes it a crime to wiretap American citizens without a court warrant - which is what the President has admitted doing. Before the program was revealed, he also misled Congress and the American people about the wiretapping that was being done. For example, at a 2004 speech in Buffalo, he said, "Any time you hear the United States government talking about wiretap, it requires, a wiretap requires a court order." And at a 2004 speech in my home state of Wisconsin, he said that "the government can't move on wiretaps or roving wiretaps without getting a court order."
When the domestic spying story first broke, the President went from saying he wouldn't be able to talk about it, to suggesting there was no other way to wiretap terrorists, to implying that the FISA law is out of date. He went on to claim that sweeping inherent powers of the presidency or the authorization of force back in 2001 gave him such authority -- neither of which is legally or factually correct. While the President has cherry-picked information before, he cannot do the same with the laws of our land.
Censuring the President is not something that should be taken lightly. But the President has BROKEN the law and there needs to be action and accountability.http://www.dailykos.com/story/2006/3/13/114144/941

In my Journalism class I am to find different opinions of people about President Bush. To makes things a little easier if you could please just post your e-mail address, phone number, or whatever method you would like to be contacted by, I will then contact you and conduct the "interview" and go from there.
THE QUESTION: "Do you agree with the spending President Bush is doing for the war in Iraq? Why or why not."
WHAT IS NEEDED: I need to find people whom I do not know and gather their responses and present them to my professor. Basically, if you would be so kind as to post your e-mail address I will e-mail you the main question along with your name, contact info. etc and take your information down. Apparently my professor is contacting our 'subjects' to ensure they exsist and we did not know them prior to asking the question, etc.
I would greatly appreciate your help with this. Please understand that your opinion(s) would only be shared between yourself, myself and my professor, however, if you do not feel confortable offering your opinion I understand.
