Standing at the Threshold of Life After Bush

As I watched the inauguration, my heart was overcome with relief to be rid of George W. Bush. In some ways, I can scarcely believe we survived his administration. How much has been lost these past eight years, not only for us but for the whole entire world? Who can say. We only know that the price is incalculable, though we somehow survived to the threshold of life after bush. Many times I didn't think we would, and yet we did.

The time has arrived for people to be arrested and dragged before courts of law, and I'm not talking about the little people. I want to see big names in handcuffs. I want to see their hair disheveled and their lips muttering, and their beady eyes darting around like cornered rodents. I want to see 3" headlines across every front page announcing stunning revelations of corruption at the highest levels of government, banking, media, think tanks, and corporations. I want to see people glued to their teevee sets with their jaws hanging to their knees as the truth washes over them in wave after wave of gushing, relentless, bracing reality. I want to see people walking around in a daze as they are forced to comprehend how many lies they have been told all these years. I want to see media personalities break down on teevee as they admit their complicity and beg for forgiveness.

That would be the beginning of justice. Will I be disappointed? Oh yes, but I put it out there anyway. I set the bar high, not to be disappointed, but because people deserve justice. They have been killed. They have been harmed. They have been lied to and stolen from and murdered, and this corruption has to end. Do not compromise your expectations of justice because you don't want to look like a fool. No! The shame rests on those who deny justice, not on those who demand it.

I'm sure we'll see this play out as you describe, but we'll have to wait for it to hit the big screen or perhaps we can save a few bucks and wait until it comes out on video. We will witness the evil ones being dragged off in shackles, but they will be Hollywood actors. It will be a block-buster and the Zionist producers will make millions and then take the spoils to their dark cave to begin implementing PLAN B.
Popcorn, anyone?

Special spin body gets media on message, says Israel

Rachel Shabi in Tel Aviv Guardian UK January 2, 2009

Israel believes its has won broad international support in the media for its actions in Gaza thanks to its PR strategy, which through a new body has for months been concerned with formulating plans and role-playing to ensure that government officials deliver a clear, unified message to the world's press. The body, known as the National Information Directorate, was set up eight months ago following recommendations from an Israeli inquiry into the 2006 Lebanon war. Its role is to deal with hasbara - meaning, in Hebrew, "explanation", and referring variously to information, spin, and propaganda. The directorate's chief, Yarden Vatikai, said: "The hasbara apparatus needed a body that would co-ordinate its agencies, coordinate the messages and become a platform for co-operation between all the agencies that deal with communication relations and public diplomacy."

The directorate acts across ministries and decides key messages on a daily basis. Of its core messages for the media, there has been the advice that Hamas broke the ceasefire agreements with Israel; that Israel's objective is the defence of its population; and that Hamas is a terror organisation targeting Israeli civilians. "In general, we think we are succeeding in getting the message across," said Vatikai. Israeli officials have also enjoyed a clear edge with coverage. An Israeli foreign ministry assessment of eight hours of coverage across international broadcast media reported that Israeli representatives got 58 minutes of airtime while the Palestinians got only 19 minutes. ...


Eight months ago? Been preparing for the Gaza Massacre for a long time, eh?

Uh, the most recent Gaza Massacre, that is.

Cheney and Rumsfeld are still running loose on the Potomac. They're not giving up their struggle, and at this very minute are plotting how to start another war against Russia. This is not an opinion, it's their life's work, the focus of what they've been doing for the last 35+ years.

Until they're collared, agonized by lawsuits, or dead, we are not safe by a long shot.

I was praying last night for a natural death to meet a few of these elderly monsters.

Do you have a link to something?

MarcLord said...

Oh, this stuff is old hat. Cheney and Rumsfeld were arch enemies of Kissinger because of detente with Russia, and they started making wild claims about secret Soviet sub technology that would allow them to come up the Chesapeake, level the government with death rays and declare Red Dawn. This was about 1974, I think.

The CIA called them crazy, so they steamrolled the agency, and everything they've done since has been out of the same playbook.

Although the wheelchair is a new one. God moves in mysterious ways, may he hear your prayers.

A. Peasant said...

Wheelchair malfunction, stairs....hmm?

I have no doubt they are working the levers of power maniacally, to the extent they have any influence left. It's got to be uphill, though. I think even the garden variety crooked people get 'evil fatigue.'

Greg Bacon said...

Cheney probably used a wheelchair not because of a physcial weakness, but so he could pack along some serious firepower during the nomination process.

He's probably getting a bit paranoid these days, as more and more people catch on to that lying, monstrous fuck.

He requested and received an additional six months of Secret Service protection after leaving his office and at the end of that period, will probably request an extension.

I bet that multi-million dollar home he bought a year ago on Chesapeake Bay is armed to the teeth.

Some of those kids he helped turn into hard-core killers in Iraq and Afghanistan are no longer looking at America thru rose-colored glasses and might want a pound or two of the Dick's dick on a platter.

"Evil fatigue."

Love it, must steal.
