Good Riddance, I Hope

From stanleyscoop, remember no new "law" is necessary to make this so, only a devoted group of patriots:
This law shall supercede all laws that have been made regarding a United States citizen's right to keep and bear arms. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Whosoever shall attempt to infringe upon a law-abiding citizen's right to keep and bear arms shall of consequence become and automatically be judged a traitor and an enemy of the Constitution and of the People of the United States of America and shall be in a state of war against them. Therefore, any citizen is justified for shooting and/or killing anyone who tries to deprive him/her of his/her right to keep or bear arms. Those making, giving or enforcing any orders that infringe upon a law-abiding citizen's right to keep and bear arms shall be wanted dead or alive. Those who are not shot and killed shall be tarred and feathered and then hanged by the neck until dead.

# Larry Chin at Online Journal via From the Wilderness - The stolen election of 2004: welcome back to hell - I've avoided linking to articles alleging fraud in the 2004 election vote count. They mostly come off as whiney sore losers. But this one is so good that I couldn't resist. The original is here. [smith2004]

Using a variety of criminal methods that they have perfected over the past four years, the George W. Bush-Dick Cheney-Karl Rove syndicate stole another election, and extended their illegal occupation of the White House. Experienced, informed and unblinking observers were not fooled by any aspect of this utterly predictable goose-step towards full dictatorship.

But to those who are "shocked" as they watched the election night numbers mysteriously slip away amidst controversy; those who are struggling to understand "what happened", let this cold realization serve as bracing edification.

Welcome to hell. Welcome to the horrifying reality that whistleblowers have suffered and fought through every day, over lifetimes. No more illusions. This is reality.

It Is a Rigged Game

The US political and economic system, exemplified by Bush-Cheney, is deeply criminalized. It is designed to profit by killing things. It thrives on war and oppression. It is sustained by collusion, fraud, lies, cover-up, and the indoctrination and manipulation of minds. It does not, and never has, represented its people. Its operatives heed no laws. They "make" law. These facts must be burned into the consciousness of every decent human being.

As Mike Ruppert writes in Crossing The Rubicon: "That profits of crime and war, which are destructive of human life, of labor, of happy, healthy neighborhoods (whether in the US or in Afghanistan, Africa and Iraq) are in effect a keystone of the global economy and a determinant of the success in a ruthless competition, is a compass needle for human civilization. One cannot expect to follow the recipe for roadkill stew and produce a crème brulee."

Criminals do not obey laws. Criminals do not believe in "democracy".

Criminals do not "permit" elections.


Air America Radio's Mike Malloy gave the most succinct and passionate explanation in his Wednesday, November 3, 2004, program [my links included-LC]:


"When you hear people saying, 'take a deep breath, we will pull through this', 'we need to work harder', 'we need to organize'-no. We will not. It's over.

"Unless electronic vote tabulation is history, and these companies are driven out of business, it's their country. Not ours.

"Nobody knows, and no one will ever know, what the actual vote count was.

"There are no checks and balances left. The US Senate now has 55 of these Republicans. When they hit 60, which is what will happen in 2006 mid-term elections--trust me--that means that no matter what Bush and the crime family want to do, they can do it. The House (of Representatives) is gone for the next two to five generations. It's gone.

"The last thing rational people in this country need right now is this whistling-past-the-graveyard horse hockey. Nothing is going to happen; it's going to get worse. There will never again be a legitimate election in this county.

"Until we get rid of the machines.


Webster Tarpley, author of the Unauthorized Biography of George Bush writes: "If Bush retains control of the White House, we can expect a neocon fascist dictatorship or martial law emergency regime in 2005 or 2006, possibly as the result of synthetic terrorism. The neocons are in a desperate flight forward mentality which seeks to avoid the penal consequences of what they have already done with Valerie Plame, the Niger yellowcake forgeries, the Israeli mole scandal, and the Chalabi betrayal of state secrets. The neocon preference is for early war with Iran. War with Russia and China cannot be excluded somewhat further down the road."

Add to that the relentless horror that will be inflicted when the effects of Peak Oil (also see From The Wilderness and Richard Heinberg) crash home in earnest, the body bags pile higher with new wars, and the lives of Americans (including Bush drones) and people all over the world continue to be destroyed.

Some members of the current Bush crime organization may leave or retire, and the possibilities include Donald Rumsfeld, and John Ashcroft (possibly replaced with Marc Racicot, a long-time friend of George W. Bush, and W's first choice for attorney general in 2000). Expect their replacements to be less well known criminals who, if anything, may be more toxic.

# Tom Knapp - Right before our eyes - Mr. Knapp, a member of Michael Badnarik's campaign team, closely watched the vote returns for Mr. Badnarik. He noticed that the counts increased much more slowly late in the game than they had in the beginning. This is certainly possible, but bloody unlikely, absent fraud. [sunni]

# Marc Cooper at LA Weekly - U.S. of Amnesia - Mr. Cooper interviews Gore Vidal on the Friday before the election. George Bush: cretin. [lew]

MARC COOPER: What would a truly courageous American president do after being inaugurated in January 2005?

GORE VIDAL: The first thing you do is bring the troops home. And you don't listen to anyone who says: "We can't do that now. We knocked their countries down and now must put them back up again. We knocked them down with our tax dollars, and with our tax dollars we must rebuild them -- our sort of urban renewal."

None of that! We go. They want us out of there -- the longer we stay, the more they're going to kill us, and the more they will be killed. And the more outrages they will perpetrate on us here at home. Get out. No more adventures. Forget about our friends in the Middle East who want us to attack Iran and Syria. Forget them. Tell them to get lost. Cut the Pentagon budget by 50 percent. That'll give you enough money to properly educate the people so they will know their own history, and when a bunch of thugs come along proposing to fleece the taxpayer -- they will recognize them, because they will know about them from past history.


But these wars are hardly the first pre-emptive ones in our history.

No, they're not. We've assaulted our neighbors in the past. The worst case was 1846, when we picked a war with Mexico when we wanted to steal part of their property, known as California. President Polk said we must have California, so he went to war against Mexico and ripped off California, Arizona, New Mexico and a couple of other states.

A young lieutenant in that war, fresh from West Point, Ulysses S. Grant, years later after he was the savior of the Union, said, "I have always thought that nations, like individuals, must always pay for transgressions. And I have always thought that the Civil War, the bloodiest civil war in history, was retribution for our attack on a weaker neighbor, Mexico." God help us for what we have done now in the Middle East.


The Kerry campaign was pretty much a disappointment, however it might have ended. You know, it was Howard Dean who pretty much broke down the gates and let the people in. Dean knew intuitively the fact that American people are violently isolationist, and virulently against foreign wars and want to be left alone to do their own business -- which is business. And that is quite sensible and is what the life of a people should be.

Dean realized this war was an abomination to all sorts of Americans: lower class, middle class, Democrats and Republicans. He saw that, and rallied them -- getting more registrations than anyone could expect from a mere governor of Vermont who just suddenly threw his hat in the ring.

That should have given Kerry a hint. What the people want you to say is that you are against this war of adventure. Against this meaningless war against terror. How do you beat terror? Terror is everywhere. Terror is the government of the United States half the time in how it relates to its own people. Our government is no friend to us and has not been for some years. To smile with satisfaction, "Boy, we got Saddam Hussein." Oh yeah, I feel safer. Terror goes on. And Saddam Hussein does or does not. He's irrelevant to the story.

# Charley Reese at - State Chauvinism - why we have to return government power to the states, as originally designed. [lew]

If you will read the Constitution, you will see that the federal government is assigned very few tasks. Mainly it was to coin money and set its value, establish weights and standards, ensure a free-trade zone within the borders, carry the mail, provide a common defense and handle foreign affairs. It was granted only such power as necessary to accomplish its listed, specified duties. Everything else was to be done by the states.

It was an eminently sensible plan. After all, who would want 13 different monetary systems, 13 different foreign policies and 13 different armies? We wouldn't have lasted two decades with such a system. On the other hand, it makes eminent sense for the states to handle such matters as health, education, welfare, the environment and social problems.
