Posts Tagged ‘Cheney’

I was watching the DVD this afternoon and thought I’d share… I know you can find it on the Internet (I pulled this one from Googlevideo), but another copy will not hurt.

It always makes me wonder why G. W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, and Dick Cheney are not in court and/or prison. For years I was proud of being an American. In less than four years, these men made me ashamed. They have disgraced and disfigured our country and we will feel the reprecussions for many, many years to come.

Isn’t it true that a captain is responsible for the actions that happen when he is in control of the ship? If so, then these “gentlemen” are responsible for the unfettered “theft” of American money, the deaths and murders of hundreds of Americans and Iraqi people, the torture and maiming of individuals for unspecified and highly questionable “crimes,” disregard for the needs of the American and Iraqi countries, mistreatment and disrespect for American soldiers, and numerous other crimes. What a black mark on the history of America.

But, as you know, the Bush’s and his like do not care what we really think; they made BILLIONS from the war. They just insulate themselves and plead ignorance…

From George Washington’s Blog

Is the U.S. the World’s Largest State Sponsor of Terrorism?

Preface: As someone who was born in America and has lived here my whole life, and who loves the ideals and Constitution our country was founded on, it has been a rude and painful awakening to learn about my government’s terrorist acts.

I believe that, if the American public knew what crimes the government was carrying out, they would not stand for it.

Four headlines this week make it clear that America may be the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism:

This is on top of previous stories showing that Cheney is directly funding terrorist groups out of his office, and that the U.S. is funding terrorists all over the world to promote its agenda. See also this, this and this.

And Americans dressed as Arabs have apparently been setting off car bombs in Iraq (when it was discovered that some of the cars used in Iraqi bombings recently came from the U.S., the cover story seemed to become that American cars were involved in car bombings only because they had recently been stolen from the U.S. and then shipped to Iraq — but does it make sense that Iraqi insurgents would steal cars in the U.S. and ship them all the way to Iraq?)

Unfortunately, this involvement in terrorism is not unique to the Bush administration:

No wonder the former director of the National Security Agency said “By any measure the US has long used terrorism. In ‘78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation”(the audio is here).

So next time the warmongers accuse a foreign country of sponsoring terrorism, remind them that – even if that is true – the U.S. is the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism.

In addition to being the leading sponsor of terrorism, the U.S. is also the largest purveyor of disinformation and propaganda in the world. Gangsters like Al Capone would be astonished at how successfully the American public has been fooled as to the nature of their government’s actions.

As one of the leading American media critics says:

“Little has been done to address the astonishing ignorance of Americans regarding the US role in the world, [including] the extensive use of terrorism by the United States . . . .”

9-11.jpgThe events of September 11, 2001 in New York City have not only shaken a city, it has shaken a country and the world. People have been demanding to know what really happened that day, the day known as 9/11.

9/11: Press for Truth is a must see movie about the lies, deceptions and cover-ups behind 9/11 and the subsequent ‘investigations’ purportedly undertaken by the US government to solve the disaster and capture the criminals.

In the movie you meet The Jersey Girls, four widows who lost their husbands in the WTC buildings, who joined together, first due to loss and unanswered questions and then to press the USG for a thorough investigation into the incidents surrounding the day of 9/11. Due to their perseverance and dedication, ultimately, the 9/11 commission was formed.

However, their triumph was short-lived after the commission released its report and they realized that the cover-ups and lies were continuing. The 9/11 commission report left more questions unanswered and spun more stories than had existed before.

The madness of lies and deceit perpetuated by the Bush administration are astounding and this movie does a good job of showing how really deceitful they are…

9/11: Press for Truth movie trailer

Today is March 1, 2008.

We are still waiting for the US government to tell us what happened, to solve the crime and to bring forth the criminals.

This man should be given a lot of credit for standing up and speaking out, seemingly alone, against all the blatant Washington corruption and lies. Give him whatever support you can.

An email received from Robert Wexler:

robertwexler.jpg

Today, in hearings on Capitol Hill, I confronted Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on her role in the lies, exaggerations, and misdirection that led us into the Iraq war.

During my questioning, Secretary Rice falsely stated that she never saw intelligence casting doubt on the Bush Administration claims that Saddam possessed weapons of mass destruction. This unbelievable statement is flatly contradicted by numerous government reports and CIA testimonials. (To watch the video of my exchange with Secretary Rice, click here.)

Secretary Rice’s responses demonstrate once and for all that we need aggressive oversight over this out of control Administration. Unfortunately, the Bush Administration has ignored the constitutional right of Congress to provide such oversight.

It is time Congress took aggressive action to assert our rights on behalf of the American people.

The House of Representatives must immediately hold former White House Counsel Harriet Miers and White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten in contempt of Congress for their failure to respond to congressional subpoenas.

I have been aggressively lobbying Members of Congress to support a vote on contempt, and I am thrilled to report that Speaker Pelosi told me directly that she agrees it is well past time to vote on contempt. I am anticipating that the House will shortly vote on resolutions of both civil and criminal contempt for both Miers and Bolten.

No one should be immune from accountability and the rule of law.

Not Harriet Miers or Josh Bolten.

And especially not Condoleezza Rice, George W. Bush or Dick Cheney.

It is time to defend the Constitution and our rights as a co-equal branch of government.

I will continue to take on the Bush Administration for their outrageous abuses just as I confronted Condoleezza Rice today and Attorney General Mukasey last week. (Click here to see my questioning of Mukasey.)

With your help we will hold these top Bush officials in contempt and continue our efforts to hold impeachment hearings for Vice President Dick Cheney.

Thank you, as always, for your great support.

Yours truly,

Congressman Robert Wexler

America ceased to be free when it replaced Democracy, responsibility and true freedom with security and then exported it to countries like Pakistan under the guise of Democracy thus beginning the slow descent to a plutocracy and total loss of freedom. Bhutto’s assassination is dramatic evidence of this : Allen L Roland

Make no mistake about it, Pakistan is far more valuable to the Cheney/Bush administration as a non democratic state under the dictatorship of Musharraf than a democratic state under the possible rule of the recently assassinated Benazir Bhutto.

And don’t rule out the role of the CIA in Bhutto’s death two months before her death, former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto sent an e-mail to her U.S. adviser and longtime friend, saying that if she were killed, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf would bear some of the blame. http://snipurl.com/1vy7r

And Musharraf never faced a serious demand from the Bush administration to protect Bhutto. http://www.middle-east-online-com/english/?id=23712

Witness the police abandoned Security Posts Before Bhutto was assassinated and here are two dramatic photographs from a video that captured the suspected assassin of Pakistan’s Benazir Bhutto as he aimed his pistol and fired ~ the most dramatic image clearly shows the hand of the assassin raised with a hand gun firing point-blank at Bhutto as she stood through the sun roof of the car leading her from a rally in Rawalpindi. Read – and see – the latest now on WND.com. http://wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE ID=59438

Nothing will stand in the way of the implementation of the Cheney/Bush neocon global agenda and certainly not a democratic and free Pakistan for the greatest enemy of the Cheney/Bush administration is the people’s will and the truth.

Look for the Cheney/Bush administration to soon move troops into Pakistan to protect their Nukes under the guise of the War on Terror while the Musharraf government blames Bhutto’s death on Al-Qaida.

Sir Edward Gibbon sums up the consequences for a nation when they substitute security for responsibility. In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all ~ security, comfort, and freedom. When … the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free.” Sir Edward Gibbon (1737-1794)

As we prepare to celebrate the New Year, my resolution is to hold George Bush and Dick Cheney accountable for their abuses of power. In the last days, we have made real progress:

The mainstream media has awakened to this movement and to the extraordinary support you have given it. Your calls, letters, and emails have clearly made a difference. Already 140,000 people have joined us in demanding impeachment hearings for Vice President Dick Cheney by signing up at WexlerWantsHearings.com.

The power of these combined voices are already shaking up the established order on Capitol Hill and throughout the mainstream media:

This week, the Miami Herald printed an article on our efforts that was syndicated in papers across the country, including the Detroit Free Press, Philadelphia Inquirer, Fort Worth Telegram, Contra Costa Times, Sacramento Bee, Houston Chronicle, Chicago Tribune, NC News & Observer, and others. (Click HERE to read the article.)

In addition, CBS4 in Miami became the first station we know of to run a television segment about the call for hearings. Video of that can be found HERE.)

Perhaps most importantly, just this morning the Philadelphia Inquirer courageously ran the full editorial I drafted along with my fellow Judiciary Committee members Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and Rep. Tammy Baldwin (R-WI). (View it HERE .) Congratulations to the Inquirer for their willingness to publish a viewpoint that is so widely held by Americans – yet one that other leading national newspapers refused to publish.

We have come so far in just a few weeks. No longer can the mainstream media ignore our efforts and dismiss this cause as only part of the fringe left.

Already we are seeing tangible results from our combined effort. As you already know, Congress is well behind the American people on this issue. This is an uphill battle, but it’s one that has to be fought. It should not be the whole agenda, but it needs be *on* the agenda.

When Congress reconvenes in January, I plan to present a list to my Judiciary Committee colleagues of every single person that signed up at WexlerWantsHearings.com. I will go to more of my colleagues and ask them to join a letter in support of hearings. We will build on the momentum you have given us.

Last week, I spent an hour on Blog Talk Radio outlining thoughts and answering questions in regards to this work. So many people hit their site that their servers temporarily went down. If you’d like to hear the archived audio, please click HERE.

Let’s do our best to further spread the message so that list will be up to a quarter million. Please continue to blog, email friends, and insist that your family and friends sign up!

Thanks for your commitment.

Congressman Robert Wexler

P.S. I have been running online ads to make more people aware of our impeachment campaign. If you are interested in making a contribution to this effort you can click here.
