Tricks By Number

After watching the ugliness that is the bush administration for the last few years, I have grown all too familiar with their ways. Their tricks, lies and tactics are no longer surprising. These people have lost all credibility, and of course, they know that. They had no credibility coming in, they sure as heck never earned any while in office, and they'll leave with even less than they got here with.

In fact, it's safe to say that never before has such a dishonest, depraved sociopathic bunch of thugs ever disgraced this country than these singularly repulsive excuses for human beings. You'd either have to be comatose or a fundamentalist Christian to still not be able to smell the rot that is them. Nobody believes these people. They are the world record-holding championship liars, cheaters, and hypocrites of all time; and they keep company with only the same.

These well dressed greed mongering losers run in packs, not because it's some clever ploy but because they'd have no one to talk to otherwise. Bird turds of a feather must flock together or end up way lonesome. Who the heck with half an ounce of self respect would let these guys use their bathroom, much less want to hang out with any of them? Ugh, the thought of it makes me feel woozy.

Am I being too harsh on the global crime syndicate gang? No, I don't think so.

Oh all right, I will admit it. I am angry at these jerks. I am offended by them. I am so sick of them I could hurl. Their faces, their voices, their stupid vapidity and offensive self-serving, self-worshiping, self-excusing hypocrisy has surpassed all of my ability to endure any part of them for even one more moment. I want them all to go away, and to not live to be very old either. I don't know what it is with their cadre of death loving vampires but these monsters live forever. How old is Kissinger now, 116? He looks it. Why should such despicable characters always live to such ripe old age? And they're never debilitated in a wheelchair, no no. They are up and atem. They all work to their last dying day, devoted to their last breath to destroying every good and decent and noble and real and beautiful and just and sane and necessary thing they can get their hands on. It's just not right somehow. I will never understand it.

Now that I have that out of the way, as truly nasty of me as it was, I will attempt to focus on the subject of the day. Yes there actually is one. It is about something I read in the Boston Globe, dated January 30, 2008 with the title, "Bush asserts authority to bypass defense act. Calls restrictions unconstitutional".

Just reading the title was enough to bring on the above emotive vociferation, and by the way, I do apologize to all decent people who are exposed to it. Somehow I know you'll understand. We all have our moments and this just happens to be one of mine.

Now regarding that article, I have to do this. It needs to be done. If the dang mass media won't step up to the plate and point out glaring reality then it is up to us to do it for ourselves. Allow me to start with this little article, and you can take the next one. Deal? Excellent.

It reads:

"President Bush this week declared that he has the power to bypass four laws, including a prohibition against using federal funds to establish permanent US military bases in Iraq, that Congress passed as part of a new defense bill."

What!? He only has 'the power' to bypass FOUR laws? Holy cow! Can we get him on this one? He's bypassed every law he ever ran across up to now. But geez, if he only has 'the power' to bypass four specific laws, then by gosh, we should have him this time. Go ahead, toss that in the bucket with the rest of the overwhelming evidence against him and his motley crew so that Congress can go ahead and ignore that too. Clunk! Thank you.

As I see it, resident bush can declare anything he likes, it doesn't mean a thing. This is good old trick # 42, "Just put it out there as if it were true and maybe no one will notice". To their credit, #42 has worked very well for them during the entire course of their illegitimate residency. (It must always be pointed out that this goofy maroon never won a single election; he was installed by corrupt supreme courtiers. That's all there is to that).

Trick #42 is often used in conjunction with trick # 13, "Pretend there's nothing insane about what you're saying, maybe they won't notice". These two tricks go hand in hand, especially for these liars because often what they're spewing into our ears is beyond belief. They know that. They came prepared. They keep #13 handy at all times. In fact, if they had to pay license fees on the use of #13, they'd all be flat broke by now.

I will now proceed to directly address the asininity of the articles' first statement. Item one: the president doesn't have powers, he has authority. Authority is not power. Authority is not rights. A job cannot have rights, only human beings can have rights. Authority is permission which is given him by the Congress, which, ostensibly, represents US. So in essence, WE give HIM permission to do his job. Where he gets power out of that must come from the same place he gets all of his lying assertions from.

So scratch the 'power' thing. It's a red herring. A dead one too. It can't swim. It doesn't exist. Next case.

The next case just happens to rub my funny bone. bush asserts he can defy Congressional laws that forbid him to use our money to build permanent bases in Iraq. I wonder if he would be so kind as to share his 'thinking' on that one. Because that's plain amusing.

Let's see here, it might go like this. "Okay see, that is not my money, it's your money. And I get to spend it on anything I want whether you like it or not because I have POWERS". Is that some smooth logic or what? Well, that would fall into the 'or what' category. How dumb do you have to be to believe it's your right to spend someone else's money after they expressly forbid it? About as dumb as he is, I guess.

But he's not dumb, not really. His clan does not suffer from stupidity, or incompetence. Those are just excuses they try to use to cover the fact that they are evil, criminally insane sociopaths who are purposely trying to destroy this country. And really, being called stupid or incompetent is way better than being identified for what they are. That would bring on prosecution and perhaps even public hangings. No doubt they embrace the whole incompetence idea. No doubt they're the ones putting it out there to make sure we don't catch on to reality too fast.

It's all getting so old. Asserting their stupidity or incompetence is of course, good old trick #7. We saw a lot of that one after 9-11. I've seen more of that one than I care to ever see for the rest of my life.

This is also related to trick #8, which is "Pretend the legal definitions are not clear as day and inarguable. Just say there's room for debate even though there's not even the width of a single atom to wiggle around in. Maybe they won't notice". Because once again, pretending there is room for debate is way better than being pegged for being law breaking liars and scoundrels, so they push the "room for debate" thing, real hard too. They really need us to buy into the idea that they believe there is room so we have to be polite and wait until they are proven incorrect. The joke's on us though because you cannot prove lying thugs to be incorrect. It's a tactic, and as we all know, it's another one that works.

"Bush made the assertion in a signing statement that he issued late Monday after signing the National Defense Authorization Act for 2008. In the signing statement, Bush asserted that four sections of the bill unconstitutionally infringe on his powers, and so the executive branch is not bound to obey them."

So to briefly summarize his position, bush is asserting that the only people in our whole country who have 100% of the power to make 100% of the laws which apply to 100% of everyone, are not bad enough to make HIM obey their silly laws. HE is above all that. No doubt he can whip out the part of the constitution that says that. Right?

Uh-huh. Anyone got a can of Cheez Whiz? Would you empty it on his head please? It might raise his IQ. If it doesn't, no problem, it would do my heart good to see his head piled high with Cheez Whiz. Put a pimento at the top too, would you? Perfecto!

"Provisions of the act . . . purport to impose requirements that could inhibit the president's ability to carry out his constitutional obligations to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, to protect national security, to supervise the executive branch, and to execute his authority as commander in chief," Bush said. "The executive branch shall construe such provisions in a manner consistent with the constitutional authority of the President."

ROFL! Ohmigosh, that's funny. Since when has this president EVER carried out his constitutional obligations? Oh jeez, I need a tissue, I'm crying over here. Faithfully executed laws? ROFLMAO! Snort! Oh God I can't go on, this is too rich. Protect National Security?! CHORTLE! Snicker! Snort! For Pete's sake, the man has done everything possible to avoid doing any of those things, why on earth would he suddenly start now? Supervise the executive branch?! That's just nutty. The executive branch needs supervision. What comedians these guys are. I'm crying over here. They're too much.

And don't miss the sweet irony that he JUST said he doesn't have to obey any of our stupid laws, and now he's saying it's not fair that anyone tries to keep him from being able to uphold the laws. The laws he couldn't give a rat's ass about. Yes, that's so believable. Lie #2: Pretend that you care about upholding the law, maybe nobody will notice". I'm afraid we've all caught on to that one mr. bushy. You little weasel.

"One section Bush targeted created a statute that forbids spending taxpayer money "to establish any military installation or base for the purpose of providing for the permanent stationing of United States Armed Forces in Iraq" or "to exercise United States control of the oil resources of Iraq."

We don't want to pay for the continued oppression of the Iraqi people for the benefit of major oil companies mr. bushy. You got a problem with that? If you do, too bad. Deal with it.

"The Bush administration is negotiating a long-term agreement with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. The agreement is to include the basing of US troops in Iraq after 2008, as well as security guarantees and other economic and political ties between the United States and Iraq."

You can't always get what you want. It's a concept none of these spoiled brats is familiar with. I think it's high time they were introduced to it. Don't you?

"The negotiations have drawn fire in part because the administration has said it does not intend to designate the compact as a "treaty," and so will not submit it to Congress for approval. Critics are also concerned Bush might lock the United States into a deal that would make it difficult for the next president to withdraw US troops from Iraq."

No, oil contracts are not treaties. This must be one of those public-private partnerships. Well, they can kiss our butts. We're kind of tired of being on the payout end of all those oil company riches. What part of bush's brain is reserved for thinking? How does he figure it doesn't concern us that he uses our dough against our express will or tries to legally obligate us well into the future without Congressional approval? Where is this guy's brain? Does he have one? No he doesn't. He is using trick #42 again, "Just put it out there as if it were true and maybe no one will notice". Uh-oh. They noticed.

"Every time a senior administration official is asked about permanent US military bases in Iraq, they contend that it is not their intention to construct such facilities," said Senator Robert P. Casey Jr., Democrat of Pennsylvania, in a Senate speech yesterday. "Yet this signing statement issued by the president yesterday is the clearest signal yet that the administration wants to hold this option in reserve."

Does anyone remember a discussion about building a half-trillion dollar embassy smack dab in the middle of a war zone? Against the will of the Iraqi people and without our knowledge or consent? There was no such conversation. Does anyone remember when the questions started coming up about whether or not we were building permanent bases in Iraq? Because reports were coming in that they were building 14 enormous, sprawling bases over there. Do you remember what they said?

I do.

They said, "Huh? Permanent bases? Heck no, whatever gave you that idea? We would NEVER do that. We are NOT doing that! We have NO INTENTION of doing that! Now shut up! How dare you even suggest it." Then they showed us photos of tent bases and told us about how they had no flush toilets or anything. They kept saying, "See? No permanent bases! We're roughing it in tents! Now shut up!" But then we found out about the reality that they had built several enormous, sprawling, EXPENSIVE flaming unbelievable FANCY ASS brand spanking new PERMANENT BASES all over the damn place. And what did Congress say? Nothing. Thanks guys, we knew we could count on you.

"Several other congressional Democrats also took issue with the signing statement."

Oh yeah? What, are they fanning themselves and fainting in the corners? Give me a break. Don't bother taking issue with a flaming piece of sheer nonsense like 'signing statements'. What the hell legal weight do those things have? YOU write the laws, YOU tell him! Tell him to quit being a lying piece of scum and tell him to obey the laws or go to prison. Otherwise, quit pretending you aren't his biggest supporters. He couldn't do a damn thing without you.

"I reject the notion in his signing statement that he can pick and choose which provisions of this law to execute," said Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Democrat of California. "His job, under the Constitution, is to faithfully execute the law - every part of it - and I expect him to do just that."

If only Ms. Pelosi were half as dedicated to us as she was to Israel we might not feel the need to throw up every time she opened her mouth. I am tired of running out of barf bags too by the way. Apparently Ms. Pelosi has not yet noticed that all these people do is lie, cheat and steal. That is not faithfully executing anything, except justice. They've snapped its little neck, kicked its dead carcass out of the way and are proceeding as if everything were normal. It's also impossible for bush to break the law when congress is bending over backwards to write criminality into the law and make it legal for him. Yes, she's keeping an eagle eye on bush. I feel so much better now.

"Bush's signing statement did not explain the specific basis for his objection to the prohibition on establishing permanent military bases in Iraq."

One more time for the road. No. These criminals will NEVER be specific. They will never tell the truth about anything. They can't. There is nothing legitimate about any of them. They are the most corrupt bunch of liars and scum bags the world has ever known. The whole thing is a scam. A ruse. A bad joke. They are robbing this country blind and cutting us all off at the knees while smiling in our faces and telling the same damned lies over and over and over about upholding the law when all they do is break the law. It's lie #1: "Pretend you aren't a huge global crime syndicate lying and killing its way to world domination, maybe nobody will notice".
