LIFE IN AMERICA UNDER THE GOP: ABRAMOFF, BLAMING IRAN, SMEARING MURTHA, SPYING, LYING AND DECEPTION

It is just great to be in America these days.

EVIDENCE OF ABRAMOFF INFLUENCE CREEPING TOWARD THE WHITE HOUSE
Found on Raw Story.com

A former official of the Labor Dept. appointed by Bush in 2001 is up to his eyeballs in Abramoff sleaze. DeLay is cited in the article too. DeLay will probably be cited in most pieces as the lid blows off the Abramoff/GOP corruption scandal.

Excerpt:

A newly discovered Senate lobbying record filed in 1997 (PDF file) lists Pizzella as "Director of Coalitions" for Chelsea Commercial, a purported Bahamas based organization lobbying for Russian trade liberalization. The Washington Post revealed last April that Chelsea Commercial appeared to have been little more than a front group for a Russian oil and gas company, Naftasib.

Chelsea Commercial, according to the Post, underwrote a trip taken by former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) and Pizzella colleague Jack Abramoff by funneling money through a Washington nonprofit. The nonprofit paid for a trip taken by DeLay along with Abramoff and former DeLay aide Ed Buckham during which the lobbyists met with DeLay and key Russian officials.

TIES BETWEEN BUSH APPOINTEE AND ABRAMOFF

BLAME IT ON IRAN

Things are looking so grim for Bush and the GOP that a scapegoat is in order. Bush and the nutty neocons are trying to distract us by going after Iran. ER - Mr. "President" - UM - we won't believe you. Fool us once shame on you. Fool us twice, shame on us.

Quote from piece:

The world needs to "send a common message to Iran that their behavior ... is unacceptable," Bush said.

What about your party's behavior, bud, and its dismantling of democracy at home by spying on American citizens with no warrants, or just cause, in most cases? And what do you have to say about the fact that most officials and appointees in your party are criminals who play in the same league as the Mafia? I fear you and your administration more than I do Iran, sir.

BLAME IT ON IRAN

BLAME IT ON MURTHA

Bush and Co. plan secret smear campaign on Murtha.

Watch who you mess with chicken hawk cowards. Murtha served while you all fled behind your daddies and deferments. We know this and we will laugh at your disgusting attempts to disgrace a war hero. You have no shame. You are despicable.

Two pieces below from the Huffington Post:

BUSH TO LAUNCH SMEAR CAMPAIGN AGAINST MURTHA

SMEARING MURTHA FOR TELLING THE TRUTH

This piece reveals why the Bush chicken hawk cowards are going after Murtha

MURTHA TELLS THE TRUTH ABOUT IRAQ SO BUSH GOES AFTER HIM

YOU ARE BEING WATCHED

Chilling piece from the L.A. Times on Bush spying

Excerpts:

Since 9/11, the expansion of efforts to gather and analyze information on U.S. citizens is nothing short of staggering. The government collects vast troves of data, including consumer credit histories and medical and travel records. Databases track Americans' networks of friends, family and associates, not just to identify who is a terrorist but to try to predict who might become one.

What type of information could these mine? Your tax, education, vehicle, criminal and welfare records for starters. But also other digital data, such as your travel, medical and insurance records — and DNA tests. Section 505 of the Patriot Act (innocuously titled "Miscellaneous National Security Authorities") extends the type of information the government can obtain without a warrant to include credit card records, bank account numbers and information on Internet use.

Your checking account may tell which charities or political causes you support. Your credit card statements show where you shop, and your supermarket frequent-buyer-card records may indicate whether you keep kosher or follow an Islamic halal diet. Internet searches record your interests, down to what, exactly, you read. Faith forums or chat rooms offer a window into your thoughts and beliefs. E-mail and telephone conversations contain intimate details of your life.

A University of Illinois study found that in the 12 months following 9/11, federal agents made at least 545 visits to libraries to obtain information about patrons. This isn't just data surveillance. It's psychological surveillance.

PROOF BUSH DECEIVED AMERICA

By Ray McGovern
Tom Paine.com

"Ray McGovern works with Tell the Word, the publishing arm of the ecumenical Church of the Saviour. A 27-year veteran of the CIA’s analysis ranks, he is now on the steering group of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)."

Excerpt:

Risen’s book also confirms the most damning element of the British Cabinet Office memos popularly called the “Downing Street memos;” namely, that “the intelligence and the facts were being fixed around the policy.” The result is that it is no longer credible to maintain that the failures in the Iraqi intelligence were the product of a broken intelligence community. The Bush administration deliberately fabricated the case against Iraq, lying to Congress and the American people along the way.
