Hurricane Rho

Posted in Uncategorized by johnnycougar on November 30, 2005

Hurricane &#961 has been brewing around Washington for quite some time now. The eye seems to be just to the southwest of GOP headquarters.

The storm, aptly named with the Greek equivelant to the letter “R”, threatens many of the felon Republicans that have been stealing our money for the last five years. Republican corruption is so dank and putrid right now, and the political firestorm is just getting started. There are too many scandals to even name. Here is a video from MSNBC of just a few of the Republican scandals that are beginning to surface.

And keep your eye open. The truth > lies&#174 Great Republican Scandal ProjectTM is still coming, although it has been delayed a week or two due to school work and the Thanksgiving holiday. But I promise I will summarize in detail just what is actually happening to this country, and why I am so pissed off and at the same time worried for our future.

Happy Thanksgiving from truth > lies!

I hope you are all having fun rubbing the Bush Misadministration’s woes in the faces of your Fox News watching relatives! I know I am!

Okay, but seriously, have fun with your families! Don’t let politics trump your connections to your loved ones!

Bush confused about war, door

Posted in Uncategorized by johnnycougar on November 20, 2005

Obviously Bush cannot contemplate the complexities of war, nor could he calculate crucial elements of his shoot-from-the-hip military action that has killed hundreds of thousands. Apparently, the war game is too complex for a president like Bush.

Defeated in war, Bush has met his new nemisis: a door. Yes, that’s right, the rudimentary device known for thousands of years by humanity as a “door” has confused this boy king.

Ducking tough questions from reporters, Bush tries to exit the press room in China, only to find out the door is locked. An aide shows him to another door.

I am speechless. The BBC story is here.

GO RUSS!!: Filibuster the PATRIOT Act by Reading the Bill of Rights!!

Posted in Uncategorized by johnnycougar on November 18, 2005

Cross-posted on Daily Kos

Russ Feingold apparently is ready to filibuster the renewal of the PATRIOT Act.  What will he read during the filibuster?  The Bill of Rights!

Oh, Russ, my heart beats swiftly!

From the New York Times:

“This is worth the fight,” Senator Russell D. Feingold, a Wisconsin Democrat who serves on the Judiciary Committee, said in an interview.

“I’ve cleared my schedule right up to Thanksgiving,” Mr. Feingold said, adding that he was making plans to read aloud from the Bill of Rights as part of a filibuster if necessary.

You just can’t get any better than this guy right now!

Contact your Senator and tell them to stand with Russ Feingold!!!

Senate contact info!!!

I leave you with little commentary for this clip. This is Representative John Murtha (D – PA) telling like it is and then some. I might just send him a flower bouquet. 🙂 Or maybe something more manly…whatever…just watch the clip!

Russ Feingold: Bush’s Pre-War Claims “Propaganda”

Posted in Uncategorized by johnnycougar on November 16, 2005

My dear Senator Russ Feingold (I say that because I am still registered to vote in Wisconsin) has been 100% consistent in his questioning of the Bush Administration’s idiotic and misguided policies. Here is a video clip of Russ on Hardball tonight. Russ and Chris Matthews discuss the debate of pulling troops out from Iraq. Russ was the only Senator to vote against the USA PATRIOT Act, and also voted against the Iraq War Resolution.

Russ and Chris also discuss the flawed foreign policy of trying to overthrow governments simply because we don’t like them. Watch the clip!!

RAW STORY: "National Security Adviser was Woodward’s source, attorneys say"

Posted in Uncategorized by johnnycougar on November 16, 2005

BREAKING FROM RAW STORY: “National Security Adviser was Woodward’s source, attorneys say

Sources have identified Stephen Hadley as purportedly the original leaker of the identity of Valerie Plame.

National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley was the senior administration official who told Washington Post Assistant Managing Editor Bob Woodward that Valerie Plame Wilson was a covert CIA officer, attorneys close to the investigation and intelligence officials tell RAW STORY.

Testifying under oath Monday to Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, Woodward recounted a casual conversation he had with Hadley, these sources say. Hadley did not return a call seeking comment.

The Bush Presidency is falling apart.  I laughed when a week or so Tom Daschle declared the Bush Presidency, “essentially over.”  I laughed partly because of the irony of the fact that our recently ousted Senate leader is sitting on a talk show declaring the President’s tenure over.  I laughed partly because I wanted it to be true.  But the truth is, Bush’s approval ratings weren’t THAT low, and there was certainly a chance for a rebound.

Now, however, I am beginning to believe it really is.  The problems keep mounting for the Bush cabal.  They are being attacked on so many fronts now, that their propaganda spin can’t keep up.  This latest news about Woodward is no different.  But the question is, when will they throw in the towel?  When will they decide that this crew that is running the country is more damaging to the Republican party than it can endure?

San Francisco Calls For the Firing of Bill O’Reilly

Posted in Uncategorized by johnnycougar on November 15, 2005

The city of San Francisco has called for Bill O’Reilly to be fired from his commentator job at Fox News and his Westwood One radio show dropped.

If you want video analysis of this, Keith Olbermann has a great clip here. O’Reilly has been out of control for a LONG time, and must be sanctioned. I have already filed a complaint with the FCC, and encourage you to do so as well. The FCC complaint form is here. Be sure to note the time and radio station O’Reilly’s program is on in your area. The date of the offensive remarks was November 8th.

Stay Tuned In the Following Days: The truth > lies&#174 Great Republican Scandal Project is Coming!

Posted in Uncategorized by johnnycougar on November 15, 2005

Within the next week or so, I will attempt to compose a both simple and complex explanation of the top five or so Republican scandals that are dangerous for this country, and will link all five of them to top Republican officials, including Bush and Cheney themselves. The scope of the corruption of the Republican party is alarming, and my hope is to put in perspective how important a Democratic victory in 2006 will be for this country. This country truly is being ruled by a bunch of out-of-control frat boys, mobsters, and conjurers all with one common thread uniting them all: Greed. There are three distinct factions running this country:

  1. The PNAC – The Project For a New American Century – A group of Neoconservative policymakers (including Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Jeb Bush and Paul Wolfowitz) on a very serious quest for world domination. They were nice enough to publish many documents proving this, as well as a Statement of Principles which they all signed.
  2. The George W. Bush crew – Led by Karl Rove, this crew is more responsible for the political aspect of power, but has been dubiously dipping its nose in policymaking for the purpose of winning elections alone.
  3. The Abramoff-Reed-DeLay crew – Also includes Grover Norquist (who along with Ralph Reed and Jack Abramoff were former leaders of the College Republicans together in the 80’s). This group seems to be directly linked to Christian fundamentalist fundraising and propaganda pushing. This group has been taking care of getting the right-wing agenda through Congress.

In the following days, the scandals I illustrate will give a more concrete picture of how these people operate and carry on business. I have to warn you that it paints a very depressing picture of who is actually in charge of this country. But the bastards are starting to crack. A good number of these people are either under investigation or already indicted, you just haven’t heard about it….yet.

Check back in a couple of days!
