I am not reposting this now because I think it is great. I’m reposting this now, because I wrote it when we still had habeas corpus and to support Wexler’s Call for Cheney’s Impeachment.
(Condemn- to state that something or somebody is in some way wrong or unacceptable)
What would our forefathers say about the state of the nation today?
I imagine if they were alive now, they would say something similar to what I have written after they read this, at least.
“In the eight months ending last May, Justice attorneys declined to prosecute more than nine out of every 10 terrorism cases sent to them by the FBI, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and other federal agencies. Nearly 4 in 10 of the rejected cases were scrapped because prosecutors found weak or insufficient evidence, no evidence of criminal intent or no evident federal crime.”
Whereas… The GOP WANTS WAR
Anne Coulter said:
“We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren’t punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That’s war. And this is war.” think our motto should be, post-9-11, ‘raghead talks tough, raghead faces consequences.’
And was/is a “leading voice” for the Republican Party,in addition to having been/being a bridge between the GOP and evangelicals, who want their false prophecies to materialize, so they may have “Dominion.”
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” (King James Version).
“Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, in our likeness and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth and over all the creatures that move along the ground.'” (New International Version).
The vast majority of Christians read this text and conclude that God has appointed them stewards and caretakers of Earth. As Sara Diamond explains, however, some Christian read the text and believe, “that Christians alone are Biblically mandated to occupy all secular institutions until Christ returns–and there is no consensus on when that might be.”
That, in a nutshell, is the idea of “dominionism.”
Whereas… a Secretary of Defense has used the wicked word “fascism” for political ends,
Nazi war criminals were hired into the CIA in 1947 because “If we don’t get them, somebody else will,” and we got them and their evil ideology.
Whereas… Nazis and Gangs of similar philosophies exist and have existed in American society (skinheads, Arian gangs, White Supremist groups, and the K.K.K.) before and since the end of WWII, and The President of the United States is part of a “Supremist” group himself.
And the President of the United States banged his fist on the podium exclaiming, “As long as I am President of the United States, we’re not leaving the war in Iraq”
in the spirit of Andrew Jackson, General Custer, and Richard Nixon; when the majority of Americans disagree, the Supreme Court and a Federal Judge both declared he overreached his Constitutional authority, and military generals have resigned their posts.
Whereas this violent and racist rhetoric lives in the hearts of the previously mentioned …
Excerpt from “Puritans, Indians & Manifest Destiny” (Charles M. Segal and David C. Stineback. pp. 155-157):
In 1647, one year after Massachusetts launched its missionary effort, John Eliot recorded
“It is therefore ordered and decreed, by this Court, for the honor of the eternal God, whom only we worship and serve, that no person within the jurisdiction, whether Christian or pagan, either by willful or obstinate denying the true God, or his creation or government of the world,
or shall curse God, or reproach the holy religion of God, as if it were but a politic device to keep ignorant men in awe, nor shall utter any other eminent kind of blasphemy, of the like nature degree; if any person or persons whatsoever, within our jurisdiction, shall break this law they shall be put to death.”
And those responsible for turning a blind eye to that great human suffering and crimes against humanity before and after Katrina are the same as previously mentioned.
Whereas Martin Luther King, Jr. said:
Martin Luther King, Jr.
“History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.”
“Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will.”
“We who in engage in nonviolent direct action are not the creators of tension. We merely bring to the surface the hidden tension that is already alive.”
And, a Legion of Evangelicals has declared “Spiritual Warfare” on the Bill of Rights of the United States of America as a shadow cover for justifying the previously mentioned;who covertly elected the President by illegal and undemocratic means.
Whereas…The Legion of Evangelicals has kidnapped and distorted Christianity, and has tried to silence its true followers for the sole purpose of acquiring political power in secular institutions.
And…… the executive director, Anthony D. Romero of the ACLU called for moral leadership after the tragedies of Katrina.
Executive Director Anthony D. Romero of the ACLU said in a speech shortly after the hurricanes hit, a solution to Katrina requires moral leadership to begin an earnest conversation about why some were left behind in the storm, while others were able to “board the ark.”
I think our forefathers might have said:
Where was the “moral leadership” that had the power requested?
Why was habeas corpus allowed to be done away with?
How could they let that happen?
WE CONDEMN THESE CRIMINALS, CROOKS, AND LIARS IN THE WHITEHOUSE AS WELL AS THEIR “PAWNS” AS UNAMERICAN, AS UNPARTIOTIC, AND AS UNCONSTITUTIONAL… LET THEM KEEP THEIR “MORALS.”
Please sign the petition if you haven’t yet, I just did.
The charges are too serious to ignore. There is credible evidence that the Vice President abused the power of his office, and not only brought us into an unneccesary war but violated the civil liberties and privacy of American citizens. It is the constitutional duty of Congress to hold impeachment hearings.
