PART 2 of 2
April 28, 2009
Last week, ImpeachBush.org, now masquerading as IndictBushNow.org issued a bulletin in which they stated:
"Under growing pressure from the people, President Obama has made a significant departure from the his position of last week that, 'nothing will be gained by spending our time and energy laying blame for the past.' Just today he stated that the prosecution of those who authorized the sadistic torture tactics 'is going to be more of a decision for the attorney general within the parameters of various laws and I don't want to prejudge that.'"
On their website they claim:
"The pressure is building. President Obama said at his press conference this week, 'My view is also that nobody's above the law, and if there are clear instances of wrongdoing, that people should be prosecuted just like any ordinary citizen,' when asked about the pursuit of Bush Administration officials for criminal wrongdoing."
Do not get me wrong, Bush committed crimes against the American people, of that there is no doubt, not the least of which was illegal wiretapping and illegal data-mining of phone and bank records. But then, I gave Bush no more of a pass than I give AKA.
For AKA to stand there and say "nobody's above the law" smacks of the pot calling the kettle black for we are, once again, right back to Article II, Section 1, Clause 5, United States Constitution and the fact that AKA refuses to turn over those documents that would prove, beyond reasonable doubt, that he is or isn't eligible to the office of president.
Now, if we can say that AKA was vetted by the vote of the people and therefore doesn't have to prove his eligibility, then we can also say that Bush was vetted by the vote of the people and cannot be put on trial for his crimes against the people. Bushes crimes are no more egregious against the Constitution than are AKA's. In fact, AKA's crimes are far more egregious in and of the fact that not only is Congress complicit but also the United States Supreme Court and several state and federal judges.
You cannot assume, with any integrity, a double standard. If "2/3 of the American public favors investigating whether the Bush Administration broke the law" as ImpeachBush.org claims, then those same 2/3 should be calling for Obama to prove his eligibility. To do otherwise is to deny equal justice and equal access under rule of law.
One of the comments Janet Napolitano made, with regard to the Department of Homeland Security targeting of freedom-loving American patriots was that she was personally involved in the Timothy McVeigh prosecution.
That admission, on her part, should clue Americans that Napolitano should not be trusted under any circumstances. The concerted effort by the FBI and federal prosecutors to cover up the actual events surrounding the Federal Murrah Building incident, ie, the "third terrorist" who was connected to Islamic jihadists, should give people cause to question exactly who Napolitano is actually working for and where her loyalties actually lay, especially considering her reference to Islamic terrorist activities as "man-made disasters" while calling American citizens opposed to AKA's Marxist agenda, "right-wing terrorists."
This is the same Janet Napolitano who, as head of the Department of Homeland Security, doesn't know that entering this country illegally is a crime. In the aforesaid interview, she also reasserts the bogus claim that the Federal Murrah Building incident was purely an inside job.
Now we discover that AKA plans on resettling at least seven of the Gitmo detainees, known as Uighur's, in the United States. Should we be surprised that AKA, who has shown himself to be, in his first 100 days in office, an Islamic fundamentalist sympathizer, would bring Gitmo detainees, trained to kill Americans in al-Qaida camps, to live in the United States? That these people were trained to hate and kill Americans, hate and kill our young men and women, serving on foreign soil, is further proof of the disdain AKA shows for the military, of the hatred AKA has for America and Americans. Bringing these al-Qaida trained terrorists to live in the United States is a violation of federal law: 8 U.S.C. 12 § 1182 plainly states that any alien who had engaged in various forms of terrorist activity or training cannot be permitted into the United States.
It has come to light that when AKA popped into Iraq in his overseas jaunt, that the visit was staged to make it appear the troops adored him:
"We were pre-screened, asked by officials 'Who voted for Obama?', and then those who raised their hands were shuffled to the front of the receiving line. They even handed out digital cameras and asked them to hold them up.
Take a look at the picture at AP and notice all the cameras are the same models. Coincidence? I think not."
In releasing the Bush torture memos, AKA has painted a bull's eye on the forehead of every American man and woman serving on foreign soil; he has as much as said that he will molly-coddle terrorists, putting the lives of American servicemen and women, under military orders, in jeopardy. He has also made it abundantly clear to foreign intelligence sources, that he is not trust-worthy. The sharing of intelligence is essential to the safety of our military personnel serving overseas.
To use our military personnel as pawns for political gain is irresponsible, immature, and unconscionable! Only someone who hates America and Americans would do such a thing.
Remember all the promises AKA made about "spreading the wealth around"? Remember the $787 billion stimulus package—the 465 pages of federal government give-aways at taxpayer expense—that was going to "stimulate" the economy, take from the rich and give to the poor? According to John Goodman of The American Conservative Union Foundation, that isn't quite true.
Did AKA and company lie? Did AKA and company lie with forethought of malice? You bet they did. And every sucker who voted for AKA thinking he/she was going to get something for nothing just got shafted, and will continue to be shafted because poor is what AKA wants every American to be.

People who voted for AKA because they believed his non-defined promises of "hope and change" are now wishing they hadn't.
He can only do get away with destroying our nation if we allow it. Are we going to allow it?
Demand Congress address the eligibility issue. For part one click below.
