Archive for the ‘Impeach Bush-Cheney’ Category

In law, treason is the crime that covers some of the more serious acts of disloyalty to one’s sovereign or nation. A person who commits treason is known as a traitor.

These crimes and the impeachment of officers thereof are granted by the U.S. Constitution.

ARTICLE II: Section 4

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office of Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

ARTICLE III: Section 3

Treason against the United States, shall consist only 1) in levying War against them, or in 2) adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the person attained.

Ex parte Bollman, 8 U.S. 75 (1807), was a case brought before the United States Supreme Court, which ruled that:

“there must be an actual assembling of men, for the treasonable purpose, to constitute a levying of war”.

The Constitutional definition of treason is limited to actual, direct, and concrete involvement in an attempt to forcefully overthrow the government.

That is, treason is essentially a “military” offense. For instance, no amount of anti-government speech can qualify as treason, although giving away military secrets might.

The Supreme court could justifiably condemn them for conspiring with Enemies (of the Constitution). They have also used military force against the States and the People under the guise of their unconstitutional Military Commissions Act of 2006 and other high crimes.

The Congress is too weak to defend the Constitution and American Freedoms.

Bush and his henchmen may soon have the power to spy on you: search your emails, web activity, downloads, phone calls, etc.

Any information you exchange digitally will become the property of the fascist government.

They’re trying to “protect” us.

Benign, compared to the many other horrors

Warning: this video reveals the true, horrid nature of the unconstitutional, imperial, criminal invasion of Iraq by the neocons controlling Washington and the White House.

You may remember this and other photos from the Abu Ghraib torture incident from 2004, and the sick Americans who took their own photos in scenes of abuse.

So compared to what people have been talking about here the pictures are quite benign.Yahia (an Iraqi witness)

[M]any people noted that there was not a frank apology from the president for this incident.Ben Wedeman (CNN)

BBC: Why Democracy

This is not a solitary incident.

Due to the Military Commissions Act of 2006, Bush or any other president the power, should he desire, has the power to use such military force within America against anyone who can be declared as ‘an enemy combatant’.

This may include anyone – innocent people, protesters, or a person organizing an anti-war protest in Washington D.C.

So when you see what the military are capable of and allowed to do, you know: we have a lot to fear.

The $2 Trillion Nightmare
By BOB HERBERT
Published: March 4, 2008

The witnesses included the Nobel Prize-winning economist, Joseph Stiglitz (who believes the overall costs of the war — not just the cost to taxpayers — will reach $3 trillion), and Robert Hormats, vice chairman of Goldman Sachs International.

Both men talked about large opportunities lost because of the money poured into the war. “For a fraction of the cost of this war,” said Mr. Stiglitz, “we could have put Social Security on a sound footing for the next half-century or more.”

Mr. Hormats mentioned Social Security and Medicare, saying that both could have been put “on a more sustainable basis.” And he cited the committee’s own calculations from last fall that showed that the money spent on the war each day is enough to enroll an additional 58,000 children in Head Start for a year, or make a year of college affordable for 160,000 low-income students through Pell Grants, or pay the annual salaries of nearly 11,000 additional border patrol agents or 14,000 more police officers.

What we’re getting instead is the stuff of nightmares.

Vermont towns vote to arrest Bush and Cheney
Wed Mar 5, 2008

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Voters in two Vermont towns on Tuesday approved a measure that would instruct police to arrest President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for “crimes against our Constitution,” local media reported.

The nonbinding, symbolic measure, passed in Brattleboro and Marlboro in a state known for taking liberal positions on national issues, instructs town police to “extradite them to other authorities that may reasonably contend to prosecute them.”

So, what is fascism? There’s a lot more talk about it these days – of growing, fascist United States of America.

Wikipedia reads:

Fascism is an authoritarian political ideology (generally tied to a mass movement) that considers the individual subordinate to the interests of the state, party or society as a whole. Fascists seek to forge a type of national unity, usually based on (but not limited to) ethnic, cultural, racial, religious attributes. Various scholars attribute different characteristics to fascism, but the following elements are usually seen as its integral parts: patriotism, nationalism, statism, militarism, totalitarianism, anti-communism, corporatism, populism, collectivism, autocracy and opposition to political and economic liberalism.

Wikipedia also says:

What constitutes a definition of fascism and fascist governments is a highly disputed subject that has proved complicated and contentious. Historians, political scientists, and other scholars have engaged in long and furious debates concerning the exact nature of fascism and its core tenets.

In other words, ‘fascism’ and calling someone a ‘fascist’ is ambiguous. But there is at least one aspect that is generally agreed upon: fascism is inextricably linked to authoritarian government.

Fascism has been exercised throughout history and still exists in some countries today. But like communism, wherever it exists it is different and does not apply to any strict definition or guidelines.

Fascism is perhaps known best for its associations with Nazism and Mussolini. But as the years have gone by, especially within the Bush era, America is becoming more widely regarded as a growing fascist regime.

14 defining characteristics of fascism, according to Dr. Lawrence Britt:

  1. Powerful and continuing nationalism (i.e. flag waving; ‘patriotism’).
  2. Disdain for the recognition of human rights (i.e. Guantanamo Bay).
  3. Identifying enemies or scapegoats as a unifying cause (i.e. terrorists/terrorism).
  4. Supremacy of the military (i.e. military industrial complex).
  5. Rampant sexism.
  6. Controlled mass media (i.e. Rupert Murdoch; Fox News).
  7. Obsession with national security (i.e. terror threat levels).
  8. Religion and government are intertwined.
  9. Corporate power is protected (i.e. Enron).
  10. Labor power is suppressed.
  11. Disdain for intellectuals and the arts.
  12. Obsession with crime and punishment (i.e. drug-war; prison industrial complex).
  13. Rampant cronyism and corruption.
  14. Fraudulent elections (i.e. Bush ‘presidency’; Diebold voting machines).

An outstanding anomolie to the regular workings of the mainstream media, Keith Olbermann has reported on fascism, and even called Bush a fascist:
