Very few doubt that Bush and Cheney have wrecked havoc on America and caused hundreds of thousands of deaths throughout the world, but in retrospect, their actions and behavior have been condoned and suppressed by America’s fascist Mainstream News Media - and without their support, The Commander in Thief and Darth Cheney would have been impeached, removed from office, and prosecuted for their crimes years ago if we still had real news and true investigative reporting in the United States.

The MSM, now owned and controlled by corporate America, have betrayed the people, and without their betrayal, the criminal actions of a Presidency that is out of control would have been halted long before they were able to bankrupt our country and compromise the very essence of liberty and freedom! Those who control Fox News, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and the huge amount of radio and television stations throughout our country - which are being bought-out by fascist forces that support corporatism and tyranny, are still gaining in strength - and as usual, Fox News, The Republican Learning Channel, constantly leads the charge to change a democratic republic into a fascist and authoritarian state. Our anti-trust laws have been ignored and changed to allow the enemies of freedom to flourish, while individual rights are now severely curtailed and are disappearing almost as fast as the wealth and integrity that once made America the world’s most respected superpower.

Under the Bush administration, our Constitution has been rendered ineffective, there are no checks and balances, the rule of law only applies to those who the government sees fit - the War on Drugs has been proven to be a joke, the War on Terrorism is certainly aimed more at American citizens who disagree with the government, and Congress is either too cowardly to impeach the criminals who are destroying our country, or have been intimidated, bought-off by lobbyists, and/or threatened into silence by an administration that is beginning to rival Hitler’s Third Reich! The lobbyists on “K Street” represent nothing more than legalized bribery, and the Democratic Party has been infiltrated by “Blue Dog Democrats” that are nothing more than Republicans in disguise.

The most recent event, which to me is the straw that is breaking the camel’s back, is that Faux News has refused to allow Ron Paul to participate in a Presidential debate (LINK) that sounds the death knell for fair elections in America, and now corporatism (fascism), by and through the MSM, are now choosing who will be our candidates for President by marginalizing anyone they see as a threat to their unbridled efforts to corrupt our democratic republic. The war profiteers, also known as the “industrial military complex” are destroying our country, and a complicit MSM is responsible for our decent into fascism and tyranny. Billionaires such as Rupert Murdoch should be viewed as “enemies of the state” and prosecuted for advocating and spewing propaganda instead of real news, and it’s getting worse rather than better. Money talks, and while the Average American loses financial ground by the day, corporatism is gaining in power and further corrupting the MSM to the point that as viable news sources - we the people have only one or two voices that espouse freedom and liberty, while the Neo-cons are still taking over the airwaves and our newspapers in an effort to further the lies that allow a country to become blinded to the truth so our dynasty families and corporations receive benefits and power that is bought and sold like the commodity it has become…

MURDOCH THE WAR MONGER: Just after the Iraq invasion, the New York Times reported, “The war has illuminated anew the exceptional power in the hands of Murdoch, 72, the chairman of News Corp… In the last several months, the editorial policies of almost all his English-language news organizations have hewn very closely to Murdoch’s own stridently hawkish political views, making his voice among the loudest in the Anglophone world in the international debate over the American-led war with Iraq.” The Guardian reported before the war Murdoch gave “his full backing to war, praising George Bush as acting ‘morally’ and ‘correctly’ and describing Tony Blair as ‘full of guts’” for his support of the war. Murdoch said just before the war, “We can’t back down now – I think Bush is acting very morally, very correctly.” [New York Times, 4/9/03; Guardian, 2/12/03] LINK

The shrill voices of Neo-conservatism are being displayed everywhere, and “fair and balanced” reporting is something that lies in our past, while the Rupert Murdoch’s of the world grow wealthier as they work to dismantle a democratic system that led the world for over 200 years. Scum like Carl Rove are being granted a voice on the MSM, and yesterday, The Huffington Post reported that Bill Kristol, a Neo-conservative that has been wrong on almost every issue he has advocated is now being awarded a column in the New York Crimes. LINK CNN gave in to the fascists by allowing Glenn Beck to spew his hate and lies on what used to be America’s premier news source, and those who speak with truth and clarity are being ignored - drowned out by the forces that control what used to be the American dream.

As citizens that promote constitutional values and the rule of law, most of us are screaming into the void, and no matter what the issue is, especially as it concerns S 1959 - the MSM simply ignores the cries for a return to values once heralded throughout the world. We never thought it could happen to us, but it has, and other counties have thrown out those who support endless war and fascism. Tony Blair received his walking papers in England, Australia’s Prime Minister John Howard was booted out of office, and even Spain had the courage to throw-out a President that was closely aligned with the Bush administration. We have poured countless billions of dollars into Pakistan - and for our efforts, Pervez Mushareff allowed Al Qaeda and the Taliban a safe haven and were allowed to regroup, something that President Bush promised our country he would never allow to happen; Pakistan is now a greater threat to world peace and security than Iran - another blunder by Neo-conservatives that still have a voice on the MSM, even though their history in power has been one of corruption, death, and financial insolvency, the MSM still allows them to spew hatred and lies in a concerted effort to undermine constitutional principles that were the basis of our democracy.

To those of us who cherish our Constitution, the rule of law, and the principles that guarantee liberty and justice for all - how are we to combat the takeover of America by corporations and dynasty families that should be convicted of treason and subversion? How do we fight the MSM? The enemies of freedom are everywhere, infiltrating social networking communities and masquerading as real people whose only purpose is to cause upheaval and strife in the groups that are desperately working to throw off the yoke of oppression. How do we insure that we will have a real election in 2008? Dennis Kucinich was marginalized just as Ron Paul is now - and we, the people who support our corporations by purchasing their goods, allow it to happen, and even when our voices are heard each and every day by Americans calling Congress to complain about our loss of liberty and the corruption that is rampant in Washington, the MSM stands mute, oblivious to the people, cowards who deserve nothing less than what Bush and Cheney deserve.

If any of the above “corporations” believe that I have slandered them, especially as it applies to Rupert Murdoch, I invite you to sue me for defamation of character. Bring in into the courts and let a jury of my peers pass judgment; I’m either telling the truth or lying - and I would love to have my day in court. In fact, the American people deserve their day in court to redress the wrongs and crimes perpetrated by those who are enemies of the constitution and democracy - something that our Congress is charged to do, but like the MSM, they still tremble in cowardice and complicity - hoping against hope that this nightmare called Neo-conservatism and fascism will somehow be defeated. 2008 will be a pivotal year, and if anyone other than Ron Paul or Dennis Kucinich is elected, we as a people all need to stick our heads between our legs and kiss freedom and liberty good-bye, along with the prosperity and standard of living that has been the hallmark of America - which is quickly descending into third-world status, compliments of the Bush Crime Family and a cowardly and complicit MSM.
