Sedition: Any action in speech or writing promoting discontent or rebellion; An attempt to impair the well-being of a state to which one owes allegiance. (Merriam-Webster)
What ever happened to "politics ends at the waters' edge?" After more than sixty years of bipartisan agreement, President Chucklehead not only launched a domestic partisan political attack from a foreign platform, he did it in Jerusalem and invoked the fucking Nazis! This proves that even a lame-duck idiot can still be dangerous, like venom from a dying viper. And Joyboy proved again that, in his dimwitted capacity, he is still entirely capable of launching another unilateral act of war against Iran before he leaves office, the public be damned.
It's superfluous to point out how despicable this act was, done to frighten American Jewish voters away from Barack Obama with malice aforethought. But Hitler? This idiot bastard should be the last person to mention appeasers of Hitler since his grandfather, Sen. Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that had intimate dealings and profited from the financiers of the Nazis. Do a Google search for Prescott Bush and Hitler and be amazed for yourself. The senior Bush was such a war profiteer, one former U.S. Nazi war crimes prosecutor argued, "The late Senator's actions should have been grounds for prosecution for giving aid and comfort to the enemy,"(The Guardian UK:9/04), and his company's assets were finally seized by the U.S. Government in 1942 under the Trading With the Enemy Act.
Wouldn't Bush think twice before comparing Barack Obama, or whatever other phantom Democrat's name someone whispered in his ear, to appeasers of the Nazis? His grandfather was worse than an appeaser; he was a collaborator. A civil suit was filed in Germany in 2004 by former Auschwitz inmates against the Bush family for amassing a portion of their fortune with slave labor. But Bush the Lesser was nonetheless welcomed like a conquering hero in the Israeli Knesset, praised for his wisdom and courage in not spending a day of his wretched term trying to broker peace in the region, and enabling the right-wing Israeli government to use the tools of the military to achieve their political ends with impunity. Basically, Bush was being honored for doing nothing, and the shaky, conservative Likud party will accept support from the President, even if it's driven by visions of an Apocalypse where an angry God demands the Jews' conversion or death. Bush's speech was supposed to be about honoring Israel's 60th anniversary, but the press was alerted that he planned to say something to "raise eyebrows." Bush raised only further contempt for himself and this country. His only defenders were the lunatic media fringe, John McCain, and his personal handler, Joe Leiberman, the Senator from Israel.
Bush's international outrage was made worse when his smug references to Neville Chamberland and Nazi tanks were reaffirmed to the press at home, this time in the Rose Garden. You see, this human failure actually believes that because it appears he will escape impeachment, he is going to get away clean with his reign of horror. But if this Republic was founded in a government of laws, and not of men, its' continued existence as a genuine democracy demands that the Bush regime be brought to account. Otherwise, who are we? The Nixon resignation proved that no man, even the president, is above the law. Only Bush won't have a sympathetic successor to grant him and his henchmen a pardon for their legal and moral transgressions.
That's why I suggest keeping Guantanamo Bay open. A facility that large will be necessary to house all the members of the Bush Regime who are guilty of crimes against this nation and others. That goes for the Iraq Study Group, Rumsfeld's Pentagon, The Neocon signers of the Project For a New American Century, Karl Rove and Karen Hughes, and the faith-based Justice Department. Also, the small group, including Cheney and Condi Rice, who discussed and approved waterboarding and other torture in closed meetings in the White House should be aware that the U.S. Government executed a Japanese military officer at the end of WWII for waterboarding an American soldier who died. The Nuremberg trials determined that the unprovoked invasion of a sovereign nation was a crime against humanity, punishable by hanging. The slaughter of Iraqi civilians by Blackwater merceneries, and the rape of their own women employees by American contractors from KBR have yet to be fully investigated, nor has the obscene war profiteering of Halliburton or their no-bid contracts. But they will be, and soon.
Bush and Cheney have repeatedly violated the Constitution under a war hysteria power grab, but like George H.W. Bush said, "This will not stand." They have broken international law to the extent that there is already a warning that Bush officials travelling in foreign lands may be subject to arrest for war crimes. An unsubstantiated rumor began last year when a South American newspaper stated that the Bush family, represented by Jenna on a UNICEF tour, arranged the purchase of a 75,000 acre plot of land in Paraguay. It's hard to believe, just because no one could imagine Jenna handling a real estate deal of that magnitude, but it's intriguing to imagine a South American newspaper's desire to report about the Bush family's need for a potential refuge somewhere without an extradition agreement with the U.S. Meanwhile, the only "appeasers" still around that I know about, are the spineless members of the U.S. Congress that gave this reckless, careless, sociopath the power to make war. Sam Cooke may have sung "A Change Is Gonna' Come," but it was his protege, Bobby Womack, who sang;
"You run to the rocks/To hide your face,
The rocks they cry/ No hiding place."
