Can't blame them. They have good reason to be.
Congress folk from both sides of the aisle have seen with their own
eyes what happens to those who stand up to the Bush Crime Family. It’s
not just the ballot box or place of employment where people who oppose the Bush
Mafia lose. People in positions of power are eliminated. Consider:
John F. Kennedy, Jr., son of assassinated President John F.
Kennedy and publisher of “George,” a glossy political journal, who
almost certainly would have opposed Selection 2000. Died in an unexplained plane
crash in 1999.
Jim Hatfield, author of “Fortunate Son” an unauthorized
biography of Baby Doc Bush and an article entitled “Why Would Osama bin
Laden Want to Kill Dubya, his Former Business Partner?” a July 2001 article
that named James R Bath as the business go-between for the bin Ladens and the
Bushes. Supposedly a suicide.
Bob Stephens, photo editor of The National Enquirer, the weekly
tabloid that had run several unflattering pictures of the drunken Bush twins
and was running articles stating Jeb Bush had gamed the 2000 election in Florida,
inhaled anthrax bacteria and died. The anthrax was discovered to have come from
the Ames strain, a type developed as a weapon by the U.S. Army. Several members
of Congress—all Democrats—also received anthrax mailings. Others,
who received anthrax mailings died, apparently random victims.
Cliff Baxter, ENRON vice chairman, who had told friends he
was going to cooperate with Congressional investigators and was considering
hiring a bodyguard when he unexplainedly left his home in his pajamas one evening
and was found shot to death inside his car, parked a short distance from his
Paul Wellstone, who opposed the illegal Iraq invasion and
was described as the White House’s number one enemy on Capitol Hill, died
in an unexplained plane crash.
Dr. David Kelly, who said the pre-war intelligence claiming
Iraq was capable of delivering WMDs was “sexed-up” to build a phony
case for war with the public. Found drugged and dead in the woods near his home.
John. J. Kokal, the State Department middle east expert who
was reported to have openly opposed the war because he knew there were no WMDs
in Iraq. Found dead from injuries suffered in a fall from the State Department
Konstantinos “Gus’ Boulis, self-made millionaire
who sold his fleet of Florida gambling boats to Jack Abramoff and later opposed
Abramoff’s efforts to bilk him out of monies owed. Victim of a professional
assassination. BTW: Abramoff pled guilty to defrauding a bank in the deal.
U.S. Army Colonel Theodore “Ted” Westhusing, on
duty in Iraq, where he was investigating contract violations and human rights
abuses by US Investigations Services, the Office of Federal Investigations and
contracts to Carlyle Group connected companies. On the day his bodyguard was
relieved of duty, Col. Westhusing was found shot to death inside his trailer.
We must also consider the case of Valerie Plame, whose husband, Ambassador
Joseph Wilson, enraged the Bush “administration” by going public
with evidence that Iraq had not attempted to buy yellowcake uranium from Niger.
Plame, for those new to the subject, served as a non-official cover (NOC) CIA
intelligence officer. All she did, along with some of her co-workers at Brewster
Jennings & Associates, was spearhead efforts to prevent the spread of nuclear,
chemical and biological weapons around the world.
Bush and Co. threw Plame, her company, their contacts and network around the
world to the wolves by publicly naming her as a CIA agent. Hers was very dangerous
work. As a NOC, she had no government protection if she was discovered to be
a spy or her company became compromised. And because she was a spy working in
what appeared to be an energy consulting company, she worked under cover, like
an FBI agent infiltrating the Mafia. So naming Plame was like an Attorney General
publicly fingering a man who’s infiltrated the Mafia as an undercover
Blowing Plame’s cover also means that the White House has no compunction
against sacrificing the life of a woman and her network of agents, associates
and contacts. What’s even more craven and treasonous, leaking her name
endangered the national security of the United States and made it easier for
the nuclear nightmare to spread. And Bush and his henchmen did not care, not
That’s evil. That’s some NAZI shit.
We must show the Congressional Leadership and Membership that they
are not alone in facing the BFEE.
We the People are there along with them.
And we are counting them to do the right thing.
That includes opposing the Alito SCOTUS nomination.
That includes opposing the USA PATRIOT Act and all their treasonous
And that includes not "going along to get along" with the
