Election Hasn’t Stopped Bush’s Civil War

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on November 13th, 2006 12:42 pm by HL

While Bush, and The Democrats spar on what to do about Iraq, people are still gettting killed everyday, and we are still spending Tens of Millions of Dollars every week or our tax money on the murderous debacle.

Suicide Bomber Kills 33 in Baghdad

SF Gate
Excerpt:
Bush is a law unto himself
A suicide bomber blew himself up outside a police recruiting center in Baghdad early Sunday, killing at least 33 people and wounding 56, police said.
Crowds of recruits were gathering outside the center in western Baghdad’s Nissur Square when the bomber detonated explosives strapped to his body, police Lt. Maitham Abdul-Razaq said.
He said the death toll was expected to rise because many of the injuries were extremely serious.
The attack was one of several on Sunday in the capital, where sectarian violence kills scores each week. Just south of the city, police were searching for gunmen who killed 10 Shiite travelers and kidnapped about 50 others Saturday night along a notoriously dangerous stretch of highway.
Earlier Sunday, a pair of roadside bombings targeting police patrols in Baghdad killed at least six civilians and wounded six others, said police Cap. Mohammed Abdul-Ghani.

H.L.s Take:
They’ve already supposedly taken impeachment “off the table,” what are they going to do next, take doing anything about Iraq “off the table.” Will they do what the people elected them to do? or what their corporate masters want them to do???


Why Does Nancy Pelosi Hate Hugo Chavez?

Open Letter To:US House Of Representatives Leader Nancy Pelosi And The US House Of Representatives

Rense.com
Excerpt:
You said, “Hugo Chavez fancies himself a modern-day Simon Bolivar, but all he is, is an everyday thug.” And you charged that Chavez “has abused the privilege of speaking at the United Nations.” You could learn a lot from this man, Nancy, because he actually represents not only his people, but the vast majority of people in the world. Part of the reason for the United Nations is to provide people from other nations with a forum to do exactly what Chavez did-which was to simply rebut the policies and practices of what has become the military-dictatorship of the USA-Israeli cabal. You have only to note the length of the applause that greeted Chavez’s remarks to understand how far from reality your own uninformed positions really are.

Bush Wax figure from Las VegasExcerpt:
President Bush’s wax likeness is taking a thumpin’ these days at Madame Tussaud’s celebrity waxworks in Las Vegas.
Bush’s head suffered about $25,000 in damages when a Madame Tussaud’s visitor attacked it the day before last week’s elections.
“No one’s pushed one over before,” said Jack Taylor, spokesman for the tourist attraction.

H.L.s Take:
Bush is taking a thumping everywhere these days… and rightly so. Lets hope the Democrats stop acting like Bush is their god, and start thumping all of his policies.


Americans Overwhelmingly Back Democrats Iniatives

Bush approval drops, Democrats’ goals backed: poll

Reuters
Excerpt:
The strongest support, 92 percent, was for lowering drug prices for retirees on Medicare by allowing the government to negotiate directly with drug companies. Some three-quarters of respondents said it should be a top priority, according to Newsweek.
Americans also supported raising the federal minimum wage (89 percent), investigating government contracts in Iraq (89 percent) and cutting the interest rate of federal student loans (88 percent).
Bush’s 31-percent job approval rating, down from 35 percent a week earlier, was a new low in Newsweek’s polling

H.L.s Take:
The majority of Americans never stopped caring about these things, it’s just that 3 consecutive elections were stolen by republicans who fooled them into thinking that they were in the minority. Now that everyone knows the truth, its time for politicians to start acting accordingly. Raising minimum wage, and lowering perscription drug prices, are a start. Helping the poor, and elderly are things that need to be done. Lets not forget helping out the middle class, who pay most of the taxes that the Government uses to figth it’s wars and make themselves rich with. How about doing something about the loss off all the good jobs that have been taken away from the middle class through government sponsored corporate greed.
How about bringing jobs back to the USA instead of paying someone in India half as much to do?


Feingold Sees Writing on Wall, Won’t Run For Pres.

Feingold Rules Out Run for President

AP
Excerpt:
Russ FeingoldMILWAUKEE (AP) — U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold has decided against seeking the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, saying he wanted to focus on his work in the Senate…
Feingold, 53, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel he realized he would be a long-shot candidate in a bid for the presidency.
An outspoken opponent of the Iraq war, the Patriot Act and other Bush administration policies, Feingold had formed his PAC, the Progressive Patriots Fund, and visited key presidential primary states such as Iowa and New Hampshire.

H.L.s Take
No one is going to be able to beat Hilary for the nomination. With Bush Sr. and Bill Clinton palling around you know that it’s going to come to 36 consecutive years with either a Bush, or a Clinton in the Whitehouse. Those 2 guys rule the world.


Pelosi backs Murtha for majority leader

Pelosi backs Murtha for majority leader

AP
Excerpt:
WASHINGTON – Rep. Nancy Pelosi (news, bio, voting record), in line to become speaker of the House, stepped into a postelection power struggle among fellow Democrats on Sunday with a letter of support for Rep. Jack Murtha in the race to pick a majority leader.
“Your presence in the leadership of our party would add a knowledgeable and respected voice to our Democratic team,” Pelosi, D-Calif., wrote Murtha. The Pennsylvania lawmaker is widely viewed as an underdog in a two-man race with Maryland Rep. Steny Hoyer (news, bio, voting record) in this week’s leadership elections.
Murtha issued a statement saying, “I am deeply gratified to receive the support of Speaker Pelosi, a tireless advocate for change and a true leader for our party and our country.”
Hoyer has been second-ranking in the Democratic leadership behind Pelosi the past four years. He issued a statement saying he was confident he would win the race.

H.L.s Take
Murtha would be a great majority leader, he would keep the heat on the Democrats to do as much as possible about getting our troops out of Iraq ASAP


Moderate Republicans Burned by Bush/Cheney

Holding to the Center, Losing My Seat by Lincoln Chaffee

NY Times
Excerpt:
anti-iwo jima
LAST Tuesday, I was one of the many moderate Republican casualties of the anti-Bush virulence that swept the country. Despite my having voted against the Iraq war resolution, my reputation for independence, the editorial endorsement of virtually every newspaper in my state, and a job approval rating of 63 percent, I did not win. Why?

Back in December 2000, after one of the closest elections in our nation’s history, Vice President-elect Dick Cheney was the guest at a weekly lunch meeting of a small group of centrist Republicans. Senators Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine, Senator Jim Jeffords of Vermont, Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania and I were honored to have the opportunity to visit with him on the eve of a session of Congress in which, because of Republican defeats, the Senate would be evenly divided at 50-50.

As we sat in Senator Specter’s cozy hideaway office and discussed the coming session, I was startled to hear the vice president dismiss suggestions of compromise and instead emphasize an aggressively partisan agenda that included significant tax cuts, the abandonment of international agreements and a muscular, unilateral foreign policy.

I was incredulous. Instead of a new atmosphere of cooperation and civility which, after all, had been the promise of the Bush-Cheney campaign, we seemed ready to return to the poisonous partisanship that marked the Republican-Congress — Clinton White House years.
