A year ago, we didn't know for sure that almost all the politicians and pundits who thundered, during the Lewinsky affair, that even the president isn't above the law have changed their minds. But now we know when it comes to presidents who break the law, it's O.K. if you're a Republican.

Yes our Commander in Liar soon to be KING GEORGE I is taking control as he circumvents the constitution and exercises his new IMPERIAL POWERS. Funny how Bush wants answers now that the cat is outta the bag about his secret spying, but drags his Heels and stonewalls all attempts at getting at the truth when it comes to his administration's wrong doings or it's shear INCOMPETENCE.

Here are some predictions for 2006 from THE EMIR OF SMOE POLITICAL SEER :

Watch for Iraq to continue to spiral towards Civil War and the violence to mount as Bush and the Corrupt Liars in the GOP spin it as one victory after another. Also, as the calls for the redeployment becomes louder the Republican party will begin to split as the gutless wonders that make up the GOP throW Bush under the bus as they worry about their own political skins in next Novembers elections.
Watch for those Poll numbers for Bush to continue to go south as Rove is finally indicted, the body count mounts in Iraq and the true magnitude of how Bush broke the law, Lied, and spied on innocent American Citizens is revealed in Congressional hearing in the coming year.

Watch for the large numbers of the GOP to lose their seats in the 06 elections as the true scope of corruption in the GOP is revealed in the Abramoff scandal.

And last but of course not least, The Gutless Chicken hawks that called for the war in Iraq will still be unable to find the intestinal fortitude or the BALLS to sign up for the Noble Cause i.e. read coddled frat boys at REDSTATE.ORG. And the right wing spin machine i.e. read FOX NEWS, Limbaugh, Hannity etc. continues to grasp at straws as to why the Bush presidency is so great and not a MISERABLE FAILURE , even as the Red State Slackjaws see the light and what the rest of us have known all along, that this administration is corrupt and rotten to the core.

Yep, write this one in stone OH TRUE BELIEVERS and Haters of all things BUSH/GOP, if you thought 2005 was a bad year for Bush just wait for 2006…you ain’t seen nothing yet!!

Iraqis March, Say Elections Were Rigged

Bush's last hope for Iraq, last weeks elections is all for not. This says it all.

Iraq: Game Over

Robert Dreyfuss
December 22, 2005

The last hope for peace in Iraq was stomped to death this week. The victory of the Shiite religious coalition in the December 15 election hands power for the next four years to a fanatical band of fundamentalist Shiite parties backed by Iran, above all to the Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq (SCIRI). Quietly backed by His Malevolence, Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, sustained by a 20,000-strong paramilitary force called the Badr Brigade, and with both overt and covert support from Iran's intelligence service and its Revolutionary Guard corps, SCIRI will create a theocratic bastion state in its southern Iraqi fiefdom and use its power in Baghdad to rule what's left of the Iraqi state by force.

The consequences of SCIRI's victory are manifold. But there is no silver lining, no chance for peace talks among Iraq's factions, no chance for international mediation. There is no centrist force that can bridge the factional or sectarian divides. Next stop: civil war.

There isn't any point in looking for silver linings in the catastrophic Iraqi vote. The likely next prime minister, Adel Abdel Mahdi, is a smooth-talking SCIRI thug. His boss, Abdel Aziz Hakim of SCIRI, is the former commander of the Badr Brigade and a militant cleric who has issued bloodthirsty calls for a no-holds-barred military solution to the
insurgency. The scores of secret torture prisons by the SCIRI-led Iraqi ministry of the interior will proliferate, and SCIRI-led death squads will start going down their lists of targets. The divisive, sectarian constitution that was rammed down Iraq's throat in October by the Shiite religious bloc will be preserved intact under the new, "permanent government" of Iraq led by SCIRI.

The Kurds, ensconced in northern Iraq, will retreat further into their enclave, content to proceed step-by-step toward what they hope will be a breakaway rump state. Earlier this year, after the January 31 transitional elections, the Kurds made their deal with the Shiite devil, winning in exchange two vital (for them) points: that Iraq will have a virtually nonexistent central government will power reserved for the provincial regions, and that revenues from future Iraqi oil fields will go to those regions, not to the state. All the Kurds want now is to take over Kirkuk, which they will do with force, violence, and ethnic cleansing aimed at Arab residents of the Kirkuk area.

The Sunnis are already charging vote fraud, threatening to boycott or withdraw from the new assembly, and openly predicting that Iraq will now slide into civil war. There is virtually no combination of political alliances now that can guarantee Sunnis a fair share of power in the new Iraq. Every Sunni leader, from the most militant Baath Party activist to the most conservative Sunni clergyman, knows that a regime led by Hakim's SCIRI bloc will mean war. As a result, proponents of cooperating with the new government will become fence-sitters, and fence-sitters will join the resistance. The insurgency will continue, and possibly strengthen.

The more perceptive among U.S. intelligence officials and Iraq experts know how to read the situation, and they mostly believe it is hopeless. "I hate to say, 'Game over,'" says Wayne White, who led the State Department's intelligence effort on Iraq until last spring. "But we've lost it." There is no mechanism for the Sunnis now to restore a modicum of balance in Iraq, and the Shiite religious parties have no incentive to make significant concessions either to the Sunnis or to the resistance, White says.

Most worrying is the fact that centrist elements in Iraq—ranging from the CIA's favorite candidate, Iyad Allawi, to the Pentagon's chosen vehicle, Ahmed Chalabi—got blown away. Therefore, as I had hoped earlier (and wrote, in this space, two weeks ago, in a piece called "Iraq's Last Small Hope," and again, last week, in "Iraq's Tipping Point"), any chance that someone like Allawi could emerge as a power broker who could bridge the divide between religious Shiites and the Sunni-led resistance is gone. The planned-for Arab League peace conference, scheduled for late February or early March, likely won't happen. Violence will intensify.

For Bush, the results present an almost excruciatingly difficult problem. The White House will begin to look ridiculous as it touts Iraq's scandal-plagued, fraud-ridden election as the birth of democracy, especially as a brutal Shiite theocracy begins to take shape. The continuing resistance will make it impossible for the president to cite progress in the war.

When President Bush starts to order a drawdown of U.S. forces in Iraq, as he must, he will not have the convenience of a peaceful, stable Iraq to point to. And the rise of Iran's power in Iraq presents another Rubik's Cube conundrum for the president. Some eager neocons, of course, will start to argue that the United States has no choice but to take the failed war in Iraq into Iran, to batter those who torment the U.S. occupation in Iraq. For others in the Bush administration, who at least live on planet earth, the problem of Iranian power in Iraq vastly complicates their ability to put a positive spin on the Bush administration's Iraq project.
The election disaster means that it is all the more important now for the United States to open direct, public talks with the Iraqi resistance, even if it means defying the Shiite religious-led regime. It is the United States whose 160,000 troops prop up the Shiites in power. Washington can no longer afford to give SCIRI and its junior partner, Al Dawa, veto power over its ability to negotiate a ceasefire with the opposition in order to pull out U.S. forces.

But it also means that every day that the U.S. forces remain in Iraq, the United States creates another day for the Shiite religious forces to strengthen their hand, to build their militia, and to make plans for cleansing Sunnis from majority Shiite areas. (It is, of course, with the help of the U.S. army that the Shiite militias are being incorporated into the new Iraqi army, unit by unit.) By getting out of Iraq as soon as possible, Jack Murtha-style, the United States can at the very least ensure that the Shiites do not grow all-powerful, and it might prevent a further radicalization of the Sunni-led resistance. When there are no good options, then prudence suggests that it's time to choose the least bad one.

Senate Blocks Extension of Patriot Act

This is Bad for Bush, but good for AMERICA here’s why: Not only is this a major defeat for Bush and the Leaders of the GOP but also we now found out that BUSH secretly authorized the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on Americans and others inside the United States. If this half witted FASCIST would do this to the America people without any authorization then you can only imagine what he would do with the AUTHORIZED and INTRUSIVE powers of a Full and unabridged PATRIOT ACT.

With the Pentagon recently acknowledging that they have the names of antiwar activists and American citizens in their database of SUSPICIOUS PEOPLE, you can sure as hell bet that this lying and incompetent jackass’s administration would use these limitless and intrusive powers to monitor his enemies and those that do not agree with him and his administrations policies. Rest assured that somewhere there is a WHITE HOUSE ENEMIES LIST not unlike the one that existed during another CORRUPT REPUBLICAN REGIME ie the Nixon Administration…give it time... it will be as my grandmother always said “everything comes out in the wash”


This administration is ROTTEN to the core!!!!

I can’t wait to hear the GOP/FOX NEWS spin on this one!!!!!

Bush takes blame for Iraq war on bad intelligence….FINALLY!!!!

Can it be that after all this time and all the dodging of responsibility that the Commander In-Competent is finally taking responsibility for the debacle that Iraq has become?????

So, Bush who knew it all and exclaimed” THIS IS NOT A FOCUS GROUP!!, when tens of thousands of American marched in the streets against his decision to go to war finally admits that he screwed up. I say tell it to the families of the dead. His consistently LAME decisions and POOR planning, or lack there of, have visited massive amounts of misery and despair upon them, this country and the Iraqi people. A continuous chain of lies and bad decisions the repercussions of which the U.S., the World and the Middle East will have to deal with for years, if not decades to come. As I said before, maybe Bush didn’t get the best advice from all those Heart to Hearts with Jesus, ‘Cause he sure as hell wasn’t getting good Intel from the Neo Cons and Ahmad Chalabi.

Thanks to Bush and his Neo Con Handlers Iraq is on the brink of civil war and an inevitable alignment with Iran that will eventually lead to a metamorphoses of the two into an Islamic/Jihadist Super state that will become a REAL threat to the entire western world.


With a solid of majority of Americans convinced that he has no plan to get out of Iraq don’t look for those SAGGING POLL NUMBERS to bounce back anytime soon.

How to change the Debate

Here we go again!! El Presidente once again is peddling his special Brand of SNAKE OIL i.e. Bush’s new Immigration Policy, guaranteed to screw the average American worker in the end. After years of ignoring the Illegal Alien problem, Bush is suddenly interested in the Mexicans that are and have been pouring across the border. When your Poll numbers are in the crapper and The Noble Cause in Iraq isn’t turning out the way your Neo Con handlers predicted you gotta do something to change the dialog…and this it?

This is a policy that even members of the GOP don’t even support and consider it nothing more than a BACK DOOR amnesty program that will allow Illegals to stay and continue to take American jobs from REAL Citizens. Bush plays it up, as we need this for security when it is obvious that he, his administration, or the GOP controlled congress could care less about REAL SECURITY.

The 911 Commission (whose formation was massively stonewalled by the Bush Admin.) has found that our Tough Guy Pres and the GOP controlled congress has still yet to take action on many of their recommendations to make America safer, Concerned more with tax cuts for the rich and SCREWING THE MIDDLE CLASS and THE POOR instead of making the country safe against Terrorism. Yeah you don’t hear too much about that anymore since the elections do ya?

After being burned on Iraq and other Bush/GOP Schemes, Bush is selling and America ain’t buying. Look for this BS policy/ploy to go the way of his Social Security reform SCAM.

On Iraq, with Americans continuing to be killed almost daily Bush states that were going to stay the course in Iraq no matter the cost and or amount of time, thus staking his administration on his Ill conceived and Lie based war. It would appear that a lot of his staunch allies that were there at the beginning are starting to head for the exits. The GOP congress has already started to distance itself from Bush worried about their own skins in the coming 06 elections and being tied to this failure of a Pres. Also,even Joe Six Pack and Suzie Housecoat (no not those CHICKENHAWK/Frat boy Trolls from redstate.org that shut down free discourse at their site and demand it here) or the average working Red State Stiff no longer has the stomach for Iraq, as they are doing the majority of the fighting and dieing or believe in Bush’s empty inarticulate rhetoric about it and the reasons for our continued presence there. These non media savvy slack jaws that supported Bush whole heartedly in the last election are starting to see the light as all the SNAKE OIL that BUSH fed America turned out to be dead wrong or just a plain lie to get us into IRAQ: There were no WMD’s, there was no Iraq/alQueda connection, we were not greeted as liberators, the profits of Iraqi Oil have not paid for the war…etc.

The average citizen, has had enough of the empty rhetoric and no plans, they want action.

Things are tough these days for GOD'S AGENTS IN THE GOP,but with the body count continuing to rise in Iraq and members of the GODLY GOP getting indicted right and left don’t expect any real turn around in Bush’s fortunes to come anytime soon

Maybe the only way in reality this administration will get to see the news they want, to help them regain their glory days is to pay for it like they do in Iraq…all on the taxpayers dime of course…oh that’s right... they already did that.
