Enemies List

So the question is kind of left hanging there: Why did he do it?

Why did Baby Doc engage in wholesale spying on American citizens without even attempting to go through the mainly pro-forma process of taking the issue before the double-super-secret Star Chamber FISA court? Keep in mind that the court has routinely in the past rubber-stamped every request for covert action that the administration has brought before it. So why did he not even bother to ask before he did it?

It has to be that the fuckers have been spying on enemies of the administration, and not just "routine" enemies of the state. In other words, they have a Nixonian enemies list, and they knew that if they brought this list before the FISA Court, even David Sentelle, the yes-man Repugnican hack who headed the court, would choke on allowing spying on people like Cindy Sheehan, Howard Dean and John Kerry.

I used to joke about it: A cousin of mine made it onto Nixon's list, and I used to say that I wanted to make it onto Bush's list. Given my active participation in the anti-war movement and my public rants -- here and elsewhere -- about the fascist maladministration of Baby Doc and the BFEE, it turns out the joke was on me.

I would be proud to join you on Bush's Enemies List. Keep up the great work.

Yeah, Bush is slowly crashing and burning. No suprise from me about the domestic spying, but it still saddens me. Before this, I would have said no to impeachment. But now...

I guess the rest are starting to figure out rome is burning...

So when you went silent last time and the implanted that device in your neck... did it break and they are going to replace it this time?

Merry Xmas!

I don't want to be a party pooper but I don't understand what the huge deal is. Perhaps this is due to me not being American, but Jeez, it's not like it's a 'new thang' for Americans. Once upon a time there was J Edgar Hoover, and well, there were worse people like McCarthy but the way people go on and on about it, it's like it's the first time you've all realized that your governmetn spies on you but when he basically took on terrorists you all rallied behind him after September 11. You can't have it both ways.

Yes, the cabal, as far as the front line spiritual whores are lined up, is the right hand merely wants to know how much political and personal dirt that they could use to silence dissent created by the left hand. This was the power ploy of J. Edgar Hoover, if you remember. Of course, Tricky Dick knew a lot about Mr. Hoover, and probably knows twice as much as the current idiot in office. However, note that the ‘right’ and ‘left’ hands are attached to the same corporate body who dictates policies. Another way to view the internal spying is to point out that the real political struggle is which party can sit closest to the corporate pimps.
There is at least one more reason for Bush to avoid the courts, however. We now live in such a state of social delusion empowering these idiots, that we must reach into our own bag of history and psychological understanding of human nature. Remember, we are talking about guys that have no fear of God, but pretend to be religious; this effete idiots embrace the torture of human beings, yet call themselves ‘Christian.’ This same group pale when they hear a round go off in the distance and most certainly hate the feel of someone’s blood on their hands, yet love to create conditions of pillage causing rivers of ignorant blood to flow. Further, they are able to watch football games and eat roasted pig just after they hear another ignorant boy was killed in Iraq. No, they are following a plan much bigger, and they can’t let any info out that they are avoiding the judicial whore process. That is why the little idiot is upset about the non-sanctioned security leak at NSA…the leaker must know far more than he told the Times and that makes the cabal or so nervous. And Mr. Leaker knows that he bought himself some time because they’ll find some innocent , young, idealistic guy, with a big mouth, in the wrong place at the wrong time, and blame him. Remember, the justice department is now staffed by the same caliber of effete as are running the Pentagon and military brass. Like all corporate lords, the Feds don’t want truth, but they do indeed want ‘results;’ and the result better mirror corporate policies.
Therefore, yes, internal spying was one layer of the leak, but there are several more planning layers of deception that the leaker must know about. What could this be? With the above in mind, anything goes. Nuke Babylon on the West Coast, (San Francisco) and blame it on China? Scuttle a fully operational carrier and blame it on the Iranians? Or, nuke Havana and blame Chavez? There will be one common thread: oil reserves and the protection of those reserves from other corporations. We can be certain that whatever the cabal comes up with in terms of scapegoat, it will most certainly be effective considering the state of our collective unconscious that is now decidedly female in terms of orientation of psyche. Frightened effete embrace the first official conclusion rammed down their brains via the idiot producing television.
