The Nation has Crossed Over Into DEFCON II for Democracy

A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL

The nation has crossed over into DEFCON II for democracy.

We have a Stalinesque government breaking the law, violating the Constitution, invading our privacy -- and Capitol Hill acts as all that's called for is some investigations.

Oh yeah, there's some huffing and puffing by the likes of Snarlin' Arlen Specter. But, as we've pointed out before, he'll never do anything. The only reason the right wingers let him chair the judiciary committee is that he took an oath of Omerta to support the Busheviks to the end when it came to voting time. (All these moderate Republicans always vote with the Busheviks when their votes are needed. They are allowed to "take a walk" and appear moderate by occasionally voting "no" when their vote isn't needed anyway. Lincoln Chafee, Olympia Snowe, and Susan Collins are all great examples of this carnival trick.)

Besides Specter is reduced to calling telephone execs to testify to try and find out about Bush's illegal activities, because Bush's handlers -- as usual -- won't provide Congress with any information about the White House's secret, law-breaking, Constitution violating government. As usual, the hearings will be a farce.

If Specter is serious -- which he isn't -- subpoena Hayden, Gonzales, Negroponte and Goss. They have all committed perjury before the Senate, anyway. And the Democrats should boycott the hearings unless the top Bush officials are put under oath.

The White House has "fixed democracy" through controlling Bush's Boy Toy I, Kansas Senator Pat Roberts,
