Will Someone Tell Me What “God-Damn Piece of Paper”, is Governing us?
The Patriot Act is a long drawn out document, and is the second most important read of you life, the Constitution being the first. Don’t ever let someone tell you that the two documents go hand in hand and compliment each other, they don not. Both documents should be should be mandatory reading in high schools in the P.O.A. classes in a students Junior Senior year. So that instead of the basic propaganda they are being taught, they have a chance to understand what the Bush administration has done with the country, and that “God damn piece of paper” that allowed this country rise above all others.
Throughout history we as a country have done things that we are not proud of. However, since the taking of the government the Bush followers have given their blessing the crimes of the administration. The so-called elected representatives have passed bills that give the administration to carry on with their criminal acts. The Patriot Act was the first of their follies. There was the excuse that they didn’t have time to read it, and we gave them a pass. The reason I know we gave them this pass is because most are still in office including the PUPPET.
I have been called a Conspiracy Nut, and told to put on the tin foil hat for my beliefs that 9-11 did not go down the way the Bush Administration said it did. Yet here we are finding out that it did not in fact happen the way they said it did. When this is all out in the open and we know all of it, all of those who ignored the warnings should be brought up on treason charges.
The thing that puzzles me is, did they not let those warnings get to Bush? Was it on purpose? Did the members of the hand picked Cheney staff and cabinet leave the Resident out of the loop? Maybe they felt that he would misspeak and let the cat out of the bag. There were warnings from more sources than the Iraq so-called intelligence meltdown and yet nothing was done to stop it. You do not have to be a Rogue Scholar to begin to connect the dots.
When the towers went down there was the opportunity of a lifetime to start the slow tightening of the grip on the country. Even in the PNAC Doctrine, they call for the need of “A New Pearl Harbor like attack.” Here is the full quote, “Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event — like a new Pearl Harbor.”
The quote is found in chapter 5 entitled “Creating Tomorrow’s Dominant Force”, of “Rebuilding Americas Defenses”.Rebuilding Americas Defenses
A great paper, “The Dangers and Cost of PAX Americano” by Richard M. Ebeling. In the second paragraph on the third page, Ebeling tells of the deception that the country used on it own people in testing chemical, and nuclear testing, while stepping further and further away from the liberal country that was the dream of our Fore Fathers, by manipulating allies and others to follow its will.
The paper is a ‘Should Read’. Ebeling goes on to point out the thing that should be obvious to all of us, but unseen by most.
A Privacy Lost
During the NSA hearings Gonzales kept referring to the Patriot Act as what made it legal for Bush to do what he was doing.
Bush administration officials argue that the civil liberties concerns are unfounded, and they say pointedly that the Patriot Act has not freed the N.S.A. to target Americans.
“Nothing could be further from the truth,” wrote John Yoo, a former official in the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel, and his co-author in a Wall Street Journal opinion article in December 2003. Mr. Yoo worked on a classified legal opinion on the N.S.A.’s domestic eavesdropping program.
In the last couple of weeks, the administration has gotten their way on two Bills. At a bill, signing ceremony is the Rose Garden Bush said how great this bill was and in his signing Statement, he did just the opposite.
The legislation I sign today provides about $33.8 billion in funding to help secure the homeland. This is a good bill. It will help us deploy nuclear detection equipment at our ports of entry, raise security standards at the nation’s chemical plants, safeguard American cities against weapons of mass destruction, and stop terrorists seeking to enter our country.
After the signing it was found out that, he used the Signing Statements to completely shoot the bill down. Privacy
In the law Bush signed Wednesday, Congress stated no one but the privacy officer could alter, delay or prohibit the mandatory annual report on Homeland Security department activities that affect privacy, including complaints.
However, Bush, in a signing statement attached to the agency’s 2007 spending bill, said he will interpret that section “in a manner consistent with the President’s constitutional authority to supervise the unitary executive branch.”
The power that Bush is using in The Signing Statements, where strengthened when some of the other laws that were passed, weakened the judicial branch.

`(B) to order compensatory, declaratory, injunctive, equitable, or any other relief for damage alleged to arise from any such action or decision.’.
On December 9 2005, the Intelligence reform bill was passed through the senate, with previsions that bypass congress and the judicial branch. CNN
Creates an independent Privacy and Civil Liberties Board, made up of private citizens appointed by the president, to examine executive branch policies to make sure they don’t violate privacy and civil liberties.
Allows grand jury information, which is normally secret, to be shared with government officials in order to prevent or respond to terrorist threats.
The really funny part, (not funny ha ha, but funny sad) is the board picked by the Bush.
So you can see the dilemma we are in, there is no real way to tell which document we are going to be governed under the next illegal thing they are caught at. Because the court just upheld Bush’s spying on the people of the United States. Just freaking peachy. So does that mean we are under the Patriot Act? I know the constitution say nothing about spying on the citizenry of the United States. So it must be when it is spying and disregarding the Constitution it is the Patriot Act, and when it comes to war atrocities its what PNAC wants.
Whew glad I cleared that up.
