The health reform debate is roaring, as it should be, and we are engaged in pressing the spineless Dems — including Obama — to stand up to the insurance companies and rescue American health care. While we are enaged in this one noble battle, we are in danger of distracting ourselves from another urgent situation-- the toxic US Attorneys appointed by Bush are still in place and their victims are in jail.

These attorneys have engaged in horrific abuses of justice, engaging in serial prosecutory misconduct that abused the legal system. They jailed innocent people, bullied elected officials into quitting their elected positions or withdrawing from political races. They threatened the children and parents and families of their targets, forcing them to choose between letting their family members become victims or pleading guilty. The judges in the cases-- Bush appointees-- often allowed evidence and processes that, ultimately, other Republican judges reversed and rejected. We are talking about heinous, criminal misconduct that has turned good citizens into cowering victims of tyranny.

These appointments were the brainchild of Karl Rove, and their express purpose was to pursue political prosecutions of mid level Democratic office holders or activists and contributors-- people who would fly under the radar. The prosecutions took place in less than 20 "swing states" where elections had been close. The plan appears to have been to solidify the states as Republican through abusive prosecutions that took out some elected officials and intimidated others, through resignation, imprisonment or attacks on integrity. We don't know how many were threatened who were never prosecuted. We do know that over 700 were victims who were identified.

It is beyond outrageous. It is obscene that Obama and Holder have not already removed these sociopathic criminals from the judicial system. I have some ideas why: Why Holder and Obama have not fired the Bush Appointed, Rove-Vetted DOJ Attorneys

American justice is at risk, it is being abused and corrupted as you read this because Holder has not removed these vile criminals from their positions in the DOJ.

If you are not already familiar with this situation, the background is in this 50-minute video by John McTiernan, director of Die Hard 1 and 3, Hunt for Red October and Predator: The Political Prosecutions of Karl Rove. will be on a mission to set this wrong right-- and we hope you will help. (I never recommend videos, but this one is sooo important. You will not regret watching it.)

When Thomas Jefferson faced similar prospects, he fired the attorneys, freed the wrongly- prosecuted and imprisoned and began impeachment hearings. We expect nothing less of President Obama. Not only US Attorneys but judges have abused their office for politically-motivated witch hunts. The most famous case is Don Siegelman, former Governor of Alabama, who became a target of Rove's machine after he had the audacity to ask for a recount in the suspicious 2002 election in which he 'lost' to Bob Riley. This must not stand. As John McTiernan says, Americans must not reach a point where they fear the judicial system, but that has happened to over 700 victims of judicial and prosecutorial misconduct.

Obama has invited us to push him. Let's take him at his word! Lives and families have been destroyed by the monsters still in their jobs as prosecutors and judges. Obama, through Holder, must insist on investigations and prosecutions.
