Big Dan's Big News Mar 14, 2008

"The Surge" is going well...because that's what we're telling you! The "silent war". Silent in the media! What's that? It's a volunteer army? Well, I don't think the taxes they take out of my paycheck for it are "voluntary"!

● The stated objective of the Bush administration’s “surge” of troops into Iraq was to suppress the violence. With no coverage, the public perception of the situation in Iraq has improved: Twenty-eight percent of the public is aware that nearly 4,000 U.S. personnel have died in Iraq over the past five years, while nearly half thinks the death tally is 3,000 or fewer and 23 percent think it is higher, according to an opinion survey released yesterday. "Mission Accomplished!".

● Of course, Big Dan was all over this back in January

● 3 U.S. troops killed in Iraq, bringing toll closer to 4,000; American troop body count @ 3,987...according to their "calculations" can rest assured it's more than that!

● Iraq, Afghanistan veterans to reveal war atrocities and 'some pretty fucked-up shit'

● Iraq Veterans Against The War (IVAW) Speak Out!!!!!!!

Winter Soldier: Hundreds of Veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan Gather to Testify in Echo of 1971 Vietnam Hearings

Hundreds of veterans and active-duty soldiers of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are gathering today for the Winter Soldier hearings. The soldiers plan to give eyewitness accounts of the occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Organized by Iraq Veterans Against the War, the gathering is modeled after the 1971 Winter Solider hearings organized by the Vietnam Veterans Against the War.

● Thor Hearne and his phony White House/GOP "American Center for Voting Rights" (ACVR) front group may be officially disbanded, but that simply means their still mysteriously-funded, tax-exempt scam to push for disenfranchising Photo ID restrictions at polling places around the country continues beneath the radar and by occasionally different names. Same anti-democracy thugs. Same money. A few less discredited (so far) names.

● For all the Bush Administration and Republican Party's phony sturm and drang about a supposed epidemic of "voter fraud" at the polling place, the DoJ refused to offer a representative to testify at a Senate hearing today on the topic.

● "All The President's LIES!" Bush lied when the took his oath of office. He has failed to execute the office of President in a lawful manner, exceeding his power and authority. Most egregiously, he has not merely failed to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States", he has worked overtly to destroy it. This is high treason.

● Evidence indicates that Eliot Spitzer was targeted for political destruction by the partisan apparatchiks of George W. Bush's thoroughly corrupt Justice Department.

(hat tip to "z") "Is this the real reason why the bankers and Wall Street wanted to fry Spitzer's ass. In bu$hCo-land when the deregulated free markets are about to cause a financial crash you fudge the figures and fake reality - BUT YOU NEVER EVER TELL THE TRUTH AND BLAME BU$HCO FOR THEIR FUCK UPS. Spitzer made the error of doing so." Predatory Lenders' Partner in Crime. How the Bush Administration Stopped the States From Stepping In to Help Consumers.
