It only stands to reason....

Quoted from a former Reaganite via Arthur Silber:

Having eliminated internal opposition, the Bush administration is now using blackmail obtained through illegal spying on American citizens to silence the media and the opposition party.

Before flinching at my assertion of blackmail, ask yourself why President Bush refuses to obey the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. The purpose of the FISA court is to ensure that administrations do not spy for partisan political reasons. The warrant requirement is to ensure that a panel of independent federal judges hears a legitimate reason for the spying, thus protecting a president from the temptation to abuse the powers of government. The only reason for the Bush administration to evade the court is that the Bush administration had no legitimate reasons for its spying. This should be obvious even to a naif.

The United States is undergoing a coup against the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, civil liberties, and democracy itself. The "liberal press" has been co-opted. As everyone must know by now, the New York Times has totally failed its First Amendment obligations, allowing Judith Miller to make war propaganda for the Bush administration, suppressing for an entire year the news that the Bush administration was illegally spying on American citizens, and denying coverage to Al Gore's speech that challenged the criminal deeds of the Bush administration.

The TV networks mimic Fox News' faux patriotism. Anyone who depends on print, TV, or right-wing talk radio media is totally misinformed. The Bush administration has achieved a de facto Ministry of Propaganda.

The years of illegal spying have given the Bush administration power over the media and the opposition. Journalists and Democratic politicians don't want to have their adulterous affairs broadcast over television or to see their favorite online porn sites revealed in headlines in the local press with their names attached. Only people willing to risk such disclosures can stand up for the country.


That certainly would explain why the media gave more coverage to the Attorney General's pro-Monarchy defense of illegal, unaccountable spying, than to Congressional critics.

Americans are to scared of their freedom.
Communism in East Europe has been exported/ imported to America. So you guys will start to wake up early in the morning, exercise as an army, go together to work for the nation and the Party with strong disipline, and who is looking for freedom will be punished as gulag, disident.
Each family will spy on its members, and other families to protect the mother nation,and love the Party and the Comandante. For more about the Comunism you can learn from Castro before Cuba's garbage society turn to a free Capitalist country.
