Bush Censure: No Chance in Hell
Senator Tom Harkin, Democrat from Iowa, is embarrassed. “I’m embarrassed that more democrats haven’t lined up on this,” Harkin told the Bill Press Show. “The democrats don’t have the guts to stand up to censure a president who misled us, who lied to the American people, who broke the law and violated the Constitution of the United States in spying on the American people.” Harkin would have us believe there is a significant difference between Democrats and Republicans when in fact both represent the only party in the Washington—the Mass Murder Party, the Big Brother Snoop Party determined to wipe their feet on the Constitution. “We need to hear from people. We need to hear from people. The American people need to know, and to show support for this resolution.”
Of course, some of us have complained mightily for years, and scant few in the government or corporate media listen because they are too busy kissing the posterior of their corporate masters, too busy attempting to demonstrate they are onboard with the Straussian neocons and their mass murder abroad and police state at home agenda. Democrats and Republicans are cut from the same cloth and corporate media is little more than a lickspittle.
As an example of how Congress treats those who buck the mass murder and Constitution chomping orthodoxy, consider Cynthia McKinney, Representative from Georgia. McKinney was targeted for elimination because she is a troublemaker—she continually raises questions about covert CIA activities, about the existence of Dyncorp slave rings, and the unresolved issues surrounding nine eleven. “Throughout my tenure in Congress, I seem to evoke memory loss, especially from certain police officers who claim not to be able to recognize my face while I go to work everyday, representing the people of Georgia’s 4th Congressional District,” declared McKinney in a statement after she was accosted by a Capitol Hill cop. In fact, it is the exact opposite of memory loss—the Mafia dons who run the plutocratic whorehouse otherwise known as Congress recognize McKinney all too well, as do their cops, and they are determined to get rid of her for asking embarrassing questions capable of making Tom Harkin blush like a school girl.
A grand jury should be investigating Bush and crew, but instead one is investigating McKinney. “I am sorry that this misunderstanding happened at all, and I regret its escalation, and I apologize,” said McKinney from the House floor, akin to the floor of a Chicago slaughterhouse. “The March 29 incident has embarrassed Democrats, including fellow members of the Congressional Black Caucus, none of whom has publicly defended her behavior,” reports the Associated Press.
It seems Democrats are embarrassed about a lot of things. Democrats no doubt will breathe a sigh of relief after formal charges are brought against McKinney and she is bounced from the House of Whores. Only then will they be able to return sans embarrassment to the business at hand—kissing the feet of their corporate masters and squawking ineffectually against Bush’s management style.
Democrats are running for the exits now that Russ Feingold’s censure of Bush has grown miniscule legs, soon to be cut out from beneath. “In fact, only two Democrats have co-sponsored Feingold’s resolution: Sens. Tom Harkin of Iowa and Barbara Boxer of California. The rest have distanced themselves from the proposal, with many saying the resolution is premature because a Senate Intelligence Committee investigation of the eavesdropping program has not concluded,” reports CNN. “There can be no serious question that warrantless wiretapping, in violation of the law, is impeachable. After all, Nixon was charged in Article II of his bill of impeachment with illegal wiretapping for what he, too, claimed were national security reasons,” writes John Dean, Nixon’s lawyer.
Bush will not be impeached, let alone censured. Our country will continue its unabated slide toward tyranny. Instead of concentrating on Bush’s crimes, the corporate media will focus on Cynthia McKinney, the “immigration” (illegal alien) bill, weepy witnesses at the patsy Moussaoui sentencing trial, and Mick Jagger’s jibe at “expat bankers and their girlfriends” who will show up at a Rolling Stones concert in the slave labor gulag known as China. Jagger, at least, understands what side of the bread gets butter.
