Bush & minions....meet the U.S. Constitution please!

Incredible. I wake up this morning to hear that Attorney Alberto Gonzales has declared that they, the Bush Regime, will NOW be going to the FISA Court to obtain warrants to spy on Americans. Well, what do you know! Isn't that fantastic? Spit.

From the Washington Post:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales fended off lawmakers on Thursday who demanded to know why the administration took more than five years to obtain court approval of its war-time domestic spying.

"I somewhat take issue ... with (Republican) Senator Arlen Specter's innuendo that this is something we could have pulled off the shelf and done in a matter of days or weeks," Gonzales told the Senate Judiciary Committee. "This is a very complicated application. We worked on it a long time."

Gonzales announced an abrupt end to the warrantless electronic surveillance program on Wednesday, just two weeks after Democrats took control of the U.S. Congress, promising investigations and legislation to bring the program in line with the law
Of course, this is an admission of guilt on their part, because by saying they are going to go by the laws set forth by our country NOW, which is basically admitting they haven't been going by the laws for years. We knew that, though, didn't we? We liberals have been screaming about this illegal surveillance program for years now and what response did we get? The neocons called us traitors to our country. Uh, sorry, but a traitor is one who spits on the US Constitution and then lies to the American people by saying he's not doing anything illegal and then one day has his Attorney General announce that he's going to start doing the spying the legal way! Of for the love of the Banana Cupcakes...

They truly believe this announcement is going to wipe the slate clean for themselves and all the judges involved (one judge has already ruled that the Bush Regime's Terror Surveillance program is illegal and un-Constitutional). Bottom line is they're nervous. They know that if the other judges declare the Regime's activities for the last 6 years as un-Constitutional (which they will), then the Congress will have to impeach and can impeach on this alone. The president of the United States of America must take an oath to uphold the laws of our nation and what Bush and his minions have done is override all of them since Bush stepped foot in the Oval Office in January 2001!

The members of Bush's Regime are nervous. Not only are they trying to backtrack their steps in their illegal surveillance program, but they also decided to fire five out of ten Federal Prosecutors who are currently or have handled republican corruption cases:

From Mother Jones (links to Josh Marshall's site too):

The Mysterious Case of the Federal Prosecutor Firings

Josh Marshall weighs in today with an interesting column in The Hill about the rash of federal prosecutors who have apparently been forced out by the Bush administration in recent weeks. Among the latest to go is San Diego US Attorney Carol Lam, whose office prosecuted the Randy "Duke" Cunningham bribery case and who announced her resignation on Tuesday. "The current work of the other fired USAs has less direct political implications," Marshall writes. "But several seem to have had ongoing investigations of allegedly corrupt Republicans."
Guess who the Bush Regime is using to fill the openings now? [wait for it...wait for it...} Aha! Bingo! Cronies from the Republican National Committee!! Of course, when all else fails and your own judges you originally appointed for these slots start to GO BY THE RULE OF LAW and start prosecuting and imprisoning your own, well then, of course it makes sense to put a bunch of RNC political operative attorneys in instead!

Incredible. Have I lost patience? Yes I have. I want to see everyone from Bush on down the line to be hounded, caught, shackled, led to prison, be found guilty, and then either:

Prison for life or Death penalty. I'm impatient but not too terribly choosey on how their story ends. They are traitors to our country. They should be dealt with accordingly.

The End.

You missed part of it Kay. On Olbermann tonight, he said under oath Gonzales wouldn't tell if they were going to do it one time, or if they had found a judge to give them a blanlet warrant.

Bush is pulling another fast one.
 
Kay check out this article.....you might like it
 
Thanks Holly for pointing that out. Yes, the little bastards are trying to pull a fast one. We will NEVER know who they have been spying on but we all know it wasn't 'da terrorists'. They were spying on peace groups and their political opponents. Bastards.

It will probably be a blanket warrant so the scoundrels won't have to admit who they've been wiretapping!!

My rage has more to do with their ignoring the laws of our great country. That pisses me off. They're traitors through and through.
 
Clif thanks for the link! I had no idea you posted that. Why? Wasn't online that night I don't think. I've missed so much during those days without my computer!!!


Also....I hope they rerun the hearing of Gonzales under oath this weekend on C-SPAN because I didn't get to watch the whole thing and only heard the highlights of it. He too needs to be impeached and thrown out of office!!!

They're all Pigs.
 
Just to point out, blanket warrants are unconstitutional. Amendment IV, "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

The Chimperor in Thief would like to think his signature negates those of Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock et. al. but I don't really think so.
 
Actually sadbuttrue,

The Chimperor in Thief would like to think,

but then he falls asleep.
