John Dean and Elizabeth Holtzman Live on Impeaching Bush

Posted in Latest Stories & Articles by H.L., Main Blog (All Posts) on September 14th, 2006 7:06 pm by HL

Last night The Nation Institute put on a talk at UCLA’s Royce Hall featuring John Dean, the former Presidential Counsel to Richard Nixon, and former New York Congresswoman Elizabeth Holtzman. The event was sponsored by Hamilton Fish, Katrina Vanden Heuvel, and Nation books. There was a reception beforehand where an impressive array of high-powered people who are dedicated to seeing George W. Bush impeached got to exchange ideas with Mr. Dean and Ms. Holtzman.

I got to meet a very nice lady named Norma Barzman, the author of “The Red and The Blacklist” and a new book, “The End of Romance.” Norma was a writer in Hollywood in the 40’s until she was blacklisted, and spent the next 30 years in exile in France. Norma introduced me to Cindy Asner, who is fighting to keep Diebold out of L.A. County.

After we filed into the Royce Hall auditorium Hamilton Fish came out and introduced the guests. John Dean is the author of several books including “Worse Then Watergate” and “Conservatives without Conscience.” He was Nixon’s attorney and the key figure in bringing down his Presidency, and he has studied past impeachments including Nixon, Clinton, and Andrew Johnson. He also served as a guest host to Keith Olbermann during the Clinton impeachment. Elizabeth Holtzman served on the House Judiciary Committee that held the Nixon impeachment hearings, and helped draft the articles of impeachment.

Senate Panel Says No To Bush Breaking The Law

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on September 14th, 2006 4:08 pm by HL

Some republicans are now actually going against every little thing that the Boy King wants. That is the first step on the road to his well deserved impeachment. Now Bush is going to have to veto a second bill.

Senate panel defies Bush on terror

AP
Excerpt:
In an embarrassment to the White House, Colin Powell — Bush’s first secretary of state — announced his opposition to his old boss’ plan, saying it would hurt the country….

The president’s measure would go further than the Senate package in allowing classified evidence to be withheld from defendants in terror trials, using coerced testimony and protecting CIA and other U.S. interrogators against prosecution for using methods that may violate the Geneva Conventions.

“The world is beginning to doubt the moral basis of our fight against terrorism,” Powell, a retired general who is also a former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, wrote in his letter.

Powell said Bush’s bill, by redefining the kind of treatment the Geneva Conventions allow, “would add to those doubts. Furthermore, it would put our own troops at risk.”

Firing back, White House spokesman Tony Snow said Powell was “confused” about the White House plan. Later, Snow said he probably shouldn’t have used that word.

“I know that Colin Powell wants to beat the terrorists, too,” he said.

H.L.s Take:
Bush wants to be able to beat confessions out of people, then withold evidence that may help to exonerate them, AND He wants to change the laws to make this all legal. Why? If these “Terrorists” are guilty then why does he need to have every unfair advantage. Is it so that he can accuse anyone of being a terrorist? Once he does that, there will be no way for anyone to defend themselves. Bush is breaking the law, and finally, even Republicans are saying so.


9/11 Kean Commission Report Exposed as ‘Fraud of Historic Proportions’ on 9/11 Fifth Anniversary by Former ‘Star Wars’ Program Director

The truth will eventually find its way out, and when it does. Bush is going to be in a world of S**t.

9/11 Kean Commission Report Exposed as ‘Fraud of Historic Proportions’ on 9/11 Fifth Anniversary by Former ‘Star Wars’ Program Director

AP
Excerpt:
On the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, three hours before the Kean-Hamilton luncheon address at the National Press Club, the former Air Force officer and director of the ‘Star Wars’ program who just won Florida’s 15th District Democratic primary with 54 percent of the vote on an explicit platform to expose the fraud of the Kean Commission Report, and top 9/11 researchers, authors and activists will present hard proof that the official narrative of the Kean-Hamilton Commission and Bush- Cheney Administration is a fraud of world historic proportions.

Dr. Robert Bowman, Lt. Col. USAF (Ret.), one of the nation’s foremost authorities on national security, directed all ‘Star Wars’ programs under Presidents Ford and Carter, flew 101 combat missions in Vietnam, has a Ph.D. in Aeronautics and Nuclear Engineering from Caltech, and has chaired eight international conferences. Dr. Bowman is the recipient of the Eisenhower Medal, the George F. Kennan Peace Prize, and the Air Medal with five oak leaf clusters, among many others.

H.L.s Take
This guy is running in Florida, so maybe the yahoos down there will defeat him, but if he wins, and shows the hard evidence of Bush’s commission, (you remember the one that said he didn’t have to testify under oath, and he could have Uncle Dick with him to whisper whatever lies, Dick wanted the monkey to tell) People will begin to realize that Bush really is a criminal, that will be the start of the whole S**thouse coming down.
