Big Dan's Big News June 22, 2008

bd: This is what I've been saying! The Bush administration, McCain, and all the other high-profile Republicans are not "conservatives". Here's 2 op-ed's by conservative icon George Will, one siding with the constitution and giving Habeus Corpus to prisoners and against McCain and the Bush administration and their "Fascist Four" Roberts, Alito, Thomas, and Scalia. And another one admonishing McCain for wanting to continue a 3rd term of Bush making the executive branch into an all too powerful monarchy. Remember! These so-called "conservatives" wanted limited government...until THEY got in power! Maybe George Will is "against the troops", "with the terrorists", and all their other fascist phrases to smear those for the constitution and against these criminals! The continuing growth of REAL conservatives questioning these Republicans in sheep's clothing that took over their party. I have discovered, that I can depend on REAL conservatives for a lot of my ammo I post on this site against the criminals and thugs now ruling the Republican Party

Thank you, George Will!

McCain, co-author of the McCain-Feingold law that abridges the right of free political speech, has referred disparagingly to, as he puts it, "quote 'First Amendment rights.' " Now he dismissively speaks of "so-called, quote 'habeas corpus suits.' " He who wants to reassure constitutionalist conservatives that he understands the importance of limited government should be reminded why the habeas right has long been known as "the great writ of liberty."

BY GEORGE F. WILL: McCain's Question Time. Most improvements make matters worse because most new ideas are regrettable, including this not-quite-new one from John McCain's speech depicting how improved America will be after four years of him: "I will ask Congress to grant me the privilege of coming before both houses to take questions, and address criticism, much the same as the prime minister of Great Britain appears regularly before the House of Commons." .

Attention conservatives! The Republicans need some MORE of your tax $$$...a couple more BILLION!!! (don't worry, it's because they're saving us from the terrorists...)

More Billions of your tax money...SPENT SECRETLY! Secret Pentagon Funding Near All-Time High. The latest Pentagon budget request contains a near record high level of money for classified, or "black" programs, reports the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments. Fiscal year 2009 includes a whopping $34 billion to fund classified weapons purchases and development, though it is not the highest level ever.

Actions speak louder than party! Obama is the conservative on this one! Obama against government in cooperation with giant telecom corporations spying on us! Of course, the FAKE "conservatives will say, "We'll give up our liberties...cuz of the terrorists!" The Republicans have used "terrorism" and 9/11 as an excuse for ALL their anti-American legislation! Ever see the movie, "V For Vendetta"? Personally, I'd rather fight the terrorists over HERE, than over THERE! By "them", I mean the fascists in our own government and these corporations!

Obama: I’ll Fight To Strip Telecom Immunity From FISA

Newsweek poll: Obama leads McCain by 15 points

I suppose this major general is also "for the terrorists"! Everyone against Bush is "for the terrorists", the Straw Man Argument!

“Major General Taguba’s comments confirm my long standing assertion that President Bush and Vice President Cheney have committed war crimes in violation of the War Crimes Act, Section 18 of U.S.Code § 2441. Commission of war crimes is an impeachable offense,” Kucinich said.

In the preface to a recently released report by the Physicians for Human Rights on the potential criminality of ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’, Major General Taguba writes:

“After years of disclosures by government investigations, media accounts, and reports from human rights organizations, there is no longer any doubt as to whether the current administration has committed war crimes.

The only question that remains to be answered is whether those who
ordered the use of torture will be held to account.”

Kucinich: Major General Taguba’s Comments Add Weight to articles of impeachment

Keeping America Safe: Prosecuting Children as Terrorists. President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and the rest of the warmongers and terror-pimps in the White House would have us believe that Omar Khadr is a monster. Khadr is the 21-year-old Canadian who is facing one of the first show-trials at Guantanamo.

SETON HALL LAW REPORT: DEPT. OF DEFENSE DATA REVEALS NO RELEASED GUANTÁNAMO DETAINEE EVER ATTACKED ANY AMERICANS; Dept of Defense’s own data rebuts Justice Scalia’s claim that 30 former GTMO detainees ‘returned to the battlefield’

Why We're Suddenly Paying Through the Nose for Gas. Oil companies, speculators and OPEC played their part, but ruinous Bush Administration policies have compounded the crisis.
