Many others like Susan Elmes of Seattle have had 'physical abuse and
gang stalking' tactics used against them for simply expressing their freedom
of speech rights. Although spygate is a problem, FBI/CIA hired thugs are in
force doing the administration's dirty work as illegal wiretapping and surveillance
campaign goes on in the background.
The Bush administration spy campaign is reaching epidemic proportions, as well
as taking a page right out of Nazi Germany or the old Soviet Union 'destruction
of civil liberties handbook.'
"The state of the Union is deplorable," said Seattle citizen, Susan
Elmes, who recently has been tailed and harassed by government agents for displaying
anti-administration bumper stickers on her car and trying to organize 9/11 truth
rallies at local libraries. "It's gone beyond spying. They even entered
my house and tried to poison my cats."
To show how the U.S. has deteriorated as a country, Elmes was investigated
by government thugs for bumper stickers like "Killing One Person Is Murder:
Killing Thousands At 9/11 Is Domestic Policy" as well as such things like
MKULTRA street hacks carve satanic symbols in library tables during a recent
9/11 film presentation.
And what gets lost in the Bush Spygate story, where people are calling for
his impeachment for bugging phone lines through the NSA, are the horrendous
violations of civil liberties going on to thousands of others like Elmes, violations
sanctioned by the Nazi-like White House authority run by a paranoid coward Bush.
While constitutional law scholars like Professor John Turley, formerly of Tulane
University, rake Bush over the coals for illegally authorizing intelligence
gathering by the FBI, CIA and NSA, the center of attention should be on the
authorization of "torture and abuse" by street thugs, not merely the
wiretapping and data gathering.
"They gather data and wiretap so they can then muscle in on the activist
organizations with hired street gangs and MKULTRA-trained individuals in order
to stop dissenters before they reach the critical mass," said one former
San Diego Air Force Captain now trying to expose the rampant neo con corruption
filtering down to even local peace and charitable organizations, not in step
with the Bush agenda.
And to support the Air Force Captain's views, Professor Turley added:
"This is one of the most serious constitutional crises that we've ever
faced in the country.
The president's use of the war resolution borders on absurdity. To have the
attorney general putting forward an interpretation that he cannot possibly believe
is true -- because he's not a moron -- is deeply disturbing."
And taking a close look down the highways and byways of America all road signs
lead directly to tyranny and a police state, where no one dare dissent for fear
of government reprisals, including imprisonment.
Regarding the much publicized Spygate story, Bush is again lying through his
teeth with recent statements, saying the NSA policy is limited only to overseeing
phone calls involving members of al-Qaeda.
Further, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said recently the White House has
the authority for the clandestine eavesdropping program since Bush is a "wartime
However, several former CIA agents, including former analyst Ray McGovern,
think otherwise, saying Bush has grossly overstepped his bounds and should be
impeached for a number of reasons, including the unauthorized spying campaign.
Another CIA agent who recently left the agency over complete disgust over the
Nazi-like spy campaign, recently was quoted as saying by the popular Capital
Hills Blues internet news site:
"It is unbelievable. We spend more time gathering intel on Americans than
we do on real enemies of our country."
Recently, the ACLU has tried to come to the rescue of several peace groups,
one in Philadelphia and another in Vermont, filing a Freedom of Information
Act (FOIA)request in an attempt to get Pentagon files on the suspected agents
who infiltrated the groups.
Although a good first step, several activists across the country, including
Elmes, said the ACLU has become an ineffective, government infiltrated organization
itself wasting time on legal battles that never amount "to hill of beans."
One activist in Los Angeles who lost faith in the ACLU's "watered down"
legal battles against the neo cons, said what's needed are "fearless prosecutors"
at the state and local levels, willing to buck city hall and make criminal arrests
against the undercover agents and street thugs violating the people's rights.
"I think the people are fed up and too much faith is put in a corrupted
ACLU that gets mired in useless legal battles," said the LA activist.
Although the ACLU has filed numerous FOIA requests in the past for groups like
Veterans for Peace and Greenpeace in places like Maine, Rhode Island, California
and Georgia, the Bush administration in the past has fought off these "paperwork
threats," treating them like annoying flies on a hot summer's day.
Critics of the Bush administration's evasive spying policies, including ACLU
lawyer Ben Wizner, said it's difficult to win "these types of cases"
in the present-day political climate since Bush is able to claim "executive
privilege" under the corrupt USA Patriot Act.
"How can we believe that the National Security Agency is intercepting
only al Qaeda phone calls when we have evidence that the Pentagon is keeping
tabs on student activists in Pittsburgh," said Wizner.
Besides the intrusive NSA policy of monitoring millions of calls, emails and
other forms of electronic communications, Bush wants to expand the use "National
Security Letters," a method the NSA uses to acquire sensitive data from
banks and business about innocent civilians based under the erroneous use of
It has been learned that the FBI and NSA daily issues hundreds if not thousands
of National Security Letters, but is also under the expanded Patriot Act protected
from ever having to provide a legal reason for issuing the letters as well as
revealing the content of the information received.
And as Bush insists on expanding his snooping authority under the revised Patriot
Act up for passage in Congress, reports surfaced last week at any one given
moment of a typical working day over 500 innocent Americans are being illegally
wiretapped or having communications checked through intrusive government data
Ironically this numbers first surfaced in the New York Times, a publication
that could have prevented the illegal snooping in the first place if it exercised
its civic duty and reported the "real news" in the first place.
