There 'R' No Consequences
Jim Kirwan

In any nation that claims to have any real laws at all ­ there have to be consequences for breaking those laws. However it is now clear that under
The Decider, there are no consequences whenever his friends or anointed servants become the issue.
So it has been with Scooter Libby, Karl Rove, Donald Rumsfeld and again Paul (you can never-fail-too often) Wolfowitz: The Empirical Sorcerer!
"Prior to the Iraq war, Wolfowitz established the Office of Special Plans in the Pentagon to skirt the intelligence community and peddle the most egregiously false claims of Iraqi WMD. In a Jan. 2003 speech, Wolfowitz referenced "Iraqi efforts to procure uranium from abroad" despite the fact that the claim had already been discredited by the CIA. A few months after the Iraq invasion was launched, Wolfowitz admitted that claims of Iraqi WMD was used as a political tool to achieve consensus for the war:
When Wolfowitz left the World Bank in disgrace and landed at the American Enterprise Institute, he said he was leaving "open the possibility of rejoining the government." Brookings analyst Philip Gordon speculated at the time that "the need for Senate confirmation would be a big political obstacle" for Wolfowitz to be named to another senior government post. Laura Rozen notes, however, that Wolfowitz's new position "doesn't require Senate confirmation.""(1)
The nation has apparently forgotten that the Decider initially ran on the idea that he alone could restore "integrity and honor" to the Office of the Presidency: in fact he promised the country 'that his administration would not tolerate even the suspicion of a conflict of interest' anywhere within his administration. But then he began the first term with the duplicity and stonewalling tactics of his Vice-resident in charge of National Energy Policies: who has to this day refused to tell the public who he met with or what was discussed, claiming executive privilege over everything that took place. Executive privilege cannot be used to trump consequences for major crimes, as that is another crime in itself!
Cheney is the same person that authored the secret contracts in Iraq, and who should fill them. Cheney is also the figurehead in the White House that confiscated the White House logs from the Secret Service to prevent disclosure of a number of very important things-one of which was who he met with on energy-policy, as well as what transpired around the leak of Valerie Plame's status within the CIA. Cheney has his own shadow government with intelligence, state, and defense components-but he will not even divulge the names of those government employees-people we are paying, but people we are not allowed to investigate: "national security," and absolutely NO consequences-of course!
Cheney is also the person next in line for the presidency who claims that he is not part of the administration-and therefore is not subject to subpoenas from congress. Yet when questions from congress were directed to him-Cheney refused to answer claiming 'executive privilege.' Amazingly no one in congress has been wiling to confront the snarling creature who is actually the acting president of the Corporation that is United States Incorporated. Where were the consequences in any of these blatant violations of the constitutional role that Cheney's title carries?
There are also a number of unacceptable creatures that were placed in various other key positions and many were installed through the back door, by recess appointments. John Bolton as US Ambassador to the UN is a perfect example of this, yet there was never a challenge from the congress or the public. In fact virtually the whole cadre of 'captains' in the Iran-Contra Scandal have made the rounds of high level positions throughout the last seven years. John Negroponte, Richard Pearle, and dozens of other 'operatives' under the Reagan Administration's various wars on drugs, and on several nations in Central and South America. Apparently their previous lives were unimportant to congress or the public (no political memory beyond maybe last week). For whatever reasons; "consequences" have never been a part of American public life-since at least the crimes of Richard Millhouse Nixon.
Down here in 'Steerage' however-there are always consequences, often excessive consequences that can last a lifetime: But for the anointed ones no such outcomes are ever even remotely considered!
Congress is the butt of all these political maneuvers, and while they know this, there is never a public complaint-just more "bi- partisanship" and on with the 'road-show' that hides a million crimes and keeps the WARS out of the headlines, and off the front pages of our lives.
In light of this kind of public record, when it comes to protecting government officials from consequences; it is fascinating that the same congress has chosen to single out anyone that speaks out against this administration or its policies in the pending Senate Bill 1959.
"This bill is the beginning of the end of Free Speech in America. If it passes, all the information sources you know and trust could be shut down and their authors imprisoned. NewsTarget could be taken offline and I could be arrested as a "terrorist." Jeff Rense at www.Rense.com could be labeled a "terrorist" and arrested. Byron Richards, Len Horowitz, Paul Craig Roberts, Greg Palast, Ron Paul and even Al Gore could all be arrested, silenced and incarcerated. This is not an exaggeration. It is a literal reading of the law, which you can check yourself here: http://thomas.loc.gov/home/ gpoxmlc110/h1955_rfs.xml"(2)
The reasons say the authors can be summed up in the title of this travesty when it passed in the US House of Representatives: "The Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007," So if you disagree with a corrupt government you will be rounded up etc., but if you're part of the corrupt establishment you can continue your free pass with 'No Consequences' for any of your own crimes or for violating your public oaths-even treason fails to raise an eyebrow these days-unless it involves some nut who is obviously deranged. Besides 'we all know that no member of the government ever assisted in any of the crimes that have cascaded by the hundreds from the events of 911' ­ right! Let it never be said that this congress did not act-and act severely to stamp out these un-American traitors to the Decider's omnipotent will! Read on and decide for yourselves!
"The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed HR 1955 titled the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007. This bill is one of the most blatant attacks against the Constitution yet and actually defines thought crimes as homegrown terrorism. If passed into law, it will also establish a commission and a Center of Excellence to study and defeat so called thought criminals. Unlike previous anti-terror legislation, this bill specifically targets the civilian population of the United States and uses vague language to define homegrown terrorism. Amazingly, 404 of our elected representatives from both the Democrat and Republican parties voted in favor of this bill. There is little doubt that this bill is specifically targeting the growing patriot community that is demanding the restoration of the Constitution." (3)
No one will save us from these criminals: we must save ourselves if we really want to retain our freedom and our way of life. . .
