Occupy Wall Street Zacotti Park, Portland, Salt Lake City, Oakland. Be Afraid

Proposed news media interaction policy for Occupy SLC: Proposal: The General Assembly recognizes that journalists are members of the 99 percent who have special access to communicate to thousands of our fellow members of the 99 percent; and agrees that media representatives are free to bring their cameras, lights, audio recorders, notebooks, and any other equipment customary to the gathering of news, with unfettered access to our public meetings, public documents and our members who are willing to engage them; unless there is just cause to curtail transparency. Just cause to curtail transparency will be determined by consensus of the General Assembly whenever possible, or a consensus of only the individuals present when just cause is suspected by a contingent of our members who are not able to call for a GA. The General Assembly hereby asks members of the movement who are uncomfortable engaging or being represented in the news media to respectfully remove themselves from the news media interaction and not disrupt it.

BYU Students Tell Cheney to “Go F&*% Yourself”!

Yikes!! When BYU students tell Cheney he is “morally dubious,” you suddenly realize that the “Shooter,” a/k/a “The Lying Fat Bastard,” cannot sink any worse in the polls – he is a dead duck!

Indeed, the term “morally dubious” to BYU students, some of the most conservative students in red-state Utah and some of the biggest supporters of the Bush/Cheney criminal administration, is the equivalent by most others’ standards of simply saying go fuck yourself, Cheney; just like Cheney told Pat Leahy to do back in June 2004.

Well, here’s a rousing suggestion for you, Dickus: “Go Fuck Yourself!”

Were these Repugs lying then, or lying now?

“You can support the troops but not the president.”
–Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)

“Well, I just think it’s a bad idea. What’s going to happen is they’re going to be over there for 10, 15, maybe 20 years.”
–Joe Scarborough (R-FL)

“Explain to the mothers and fathers of American servicemen that may come home in body bags why their son or daughter have to give up their life?”
–Sean Hannity, Fox News, 4/6/99

“[The] President . . . is once again releasing American military might on a foreign country with an ill-defined objective and no exit strategy. He has yet to tell the Congress how much this operation will cost. And he has not informed our nation’s armed forces about how long they will be away from home. These strikes do not make for a sound foreign policy.”
–Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA)

“American foreign policy is now one huge big mystery. Simply put, the administration is trying to lead the world with a feel-good foreign policy.”
–Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)

“If we are going to commit American troops, we must be certain they have a clear mission, an achievable goal and an exit strategy.”
–Karen Hughes, speaking on behalf of George W Bush

“I had doubts about the bombing campaign from the beginning . . I didn’t think we had done enough in the diplomatic area.”
–Senator Trent Lott (R-MS)

“I cannot support a failed foreign policy. History teaches us that it is often easier to make war than peace. This administration is just learning that lesson right now. The President began this mission with very vague objectives and lots of unanswered questions. A month later, these questions are still unanswered. There are no clarified rules of engagement. There is no timetable. There is no legitimate definition of victory. There is no contingency plan for mission creep. There is no clear funding program. There is no agenda to bolster our over-extended military. There is no explanation defining what vital national interests are at stake. There was no strategic plan for war when the President started this thing, and there still is no plan today”
–Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)

“Victory means exit strategy, and it’s important for the President to explain to us what the exit strategy is.”
–Governor George W. Bush (R-TX)

These quotes all surround Bill Clinton’s troop deployment to Bosnia. What has changed in these people’s minds? Were they wrong then and right now?

Let’s See … Scumbag Liar #?? … Ahh, Forget It!

Yet another top echelon member of BushCo appears ready to depart the administration under suspicion of being a lying liar of a scumbag liar – this time, Alberto “AG” Gonzalez. See also, here. There comes a time when even the most ardent supporters of BushCo must ask themselves: “Were the kooks, wackos and nutcakes correct from the beginning? … How could I have gotten things so terribly wrong?”

Well, folks, take solace, cause you are among the majority now. The majority who have come to recognize that BushCo is the ultimate Enron, Tyco and Global Crossing, all rolled into one political land mind, complete with death and destruction of friends, and far more friends and friends of friends.

It is time, now, however, to admit you were betrayed (Ken B., in particular), so the healing of the nation may begin.

UPDATE:  Dan Bartlett, counselor to the president, said Saturday that Bush continues to support Gonzales despite the latest disclosures.  Is anybody even surprised?  Gonzales lied about his involvement, the lie is confirmed through documents, and Bush continues to support the lying liar.  Go to hell, Bush!  And take each and every member of your sell-out administration with you!  You’ve caused enough damage already!

Vermont Votes to Impeach the Scumbag Liars!

VERMONT SAYS IMPEACH!!!

We the people have the power — and the responsibility — to remove executives who transgress not just the law, but the rule of law.

The oaths that the President and Vice President take binds them to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.” The failure to do so forms a sound basis for articles of impeachment.

The President and Vice President have failed to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution” in the following ways:

1. They have manipulated intelligence and misled the country to justify an immoral, unjust, and unnecessary preemptive war in Iraq.

2. They have directed the government to engage in domestic spying without warrants, in direct contravention of U.S. law.

3. They have conspired to commit the torture of prisoners, in violation of the Federal Torture Act and the Geneva Convention.

4. They have ordered the indefinite detention without legal counsel, without charges and without the opportunity to appear before a civil judicial officer to challenge the detention — all in violation of U.S. law and the Bill of Rights.

When strong evidence exists of the most serious crimes, we must use impeachment — or lose the ability of the legislative branch to compel the executive branch to obey the law.

George Bush has led our country to a constitutional crisis, and it is our responsibility to remove him from office.

Scumbag Liars! / Cheney Mum!

Lying Liar Scooter Libby.

Count 1 (Obstruction): GUILTY
Count 2 (Perjury): GUILTY
Count 3 (False Statement): NOT GUILTY
Count 4 (Perjury): GUILTY
Count 5 (Perjury): GUILTY

Cheney “the real terrorist” is mum.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have been lied to and served up misrepresentations by the highest ranking members of BushCo. And now we have proof, confirmed by unanimous jury verdict. Let the outrage begin, and let those who should be most-outraged – i.e., the supporters of Bush – start asking some hard questions of the administration and of themselves. In the meantime, let’s sit back and wait for the BushCo spin-machine to clarify how this all proves nothing.
