What do you think the future American generations will say looking back on this President?

Quotes by President George W. Bush

“This is an impressive crowd – the haves and the have-mores. Some people call you the elites; I call you my base.”

“We know that dictators are quick to choose aggression, while free nations strive to resolve differences in peace”.

It’s not a dictatorship in Washington, but I tried to make it one in that instance.

A dictatorship would be a heck of a lot easier, there’s no question about it.

It’s important for people to know that I’m the president of everybody.

You are either with us or you are with the terrorists.

A Call to Patriots Everywhere

These are dark days upon us but being the hopeless optomist that I am, I believe that we can restore this country back to what it once was, standing for all that was good. I posted the following from two great patriots and to learn more visit

Dear Patriots,

I come to you today in the spirit of verve, passion and quest for expansion of our resolve. It is my sincere hope that you will read the very important message below, a personal message to the ‘patriot community’ from one of the organizers of the July 4th Philadelphia Emergency Antiwar Convention.

By now many of you have heard about the gathering of ‘peace groups’ in Philadelphia on the 4th of July to plan a course of direct action against our out of control government. Like many of you, I too was skeptical about getting directly involved with this movement due to a perception that many actions taken by the “left” or the “peace movement” are overall mostly symbolic and ineffective.

But we face a powerful and omnipresent foe, my friends and to root out the evil that has seized this country we must build bridges and coalitions beyond our immediate communities in order to bring about the change that is necessary. I joined the national conference call of this event’s organizers the other day and I come to tell you today that I believe that this new crop of leadership that is putting on this event means business. I like what I’m hearing and reading and I do believe that they mean what they’re saying in their radio ads if you heard them already playing on such great patriot radio networks such as WTPRN. Because I believe in change, because I believe that we have reached a point of critical mass and because sometimes necessity breeds strange bedfellows, it is my contention that we must set aside previous perceptions and be willing to set aside policy and philosophical differences that may have kept our factions separated in regards to our direct actions against the enemies of freedom.

Today I am asking members of Restore the Republic and AFTF and patriots everywhere to explore what these groups are saying and accept their offer to lock arms with us in creating a greater unity of purpose. That purpose is to stop the destruction of this great country and restore it to the rule of law through regaining control and citizen oversight of our governmental leaders and ending once and for all the grip of corporate fascism that is using our great nation as an instrument of death, war and enslavement the likes of which the world has never seen.

We wish to be free. We resolve to take back our country. We the people, will not succumb to fear mongering and a domestic police state. We will not allow the microchipping and 24/7 surveillance of our citizens. We will restore this great republic and to do so, we need allies for we are at war. In a time of war, one needs friends. I personally may not agree with everyone in any movement that I join and always must look at getting past surface-level semantics in order to build something greater. This takes focusing on the common ground that my proposed brothers and sisters and I share. I suggest to you today that our communities must get together, lock arms and strike a resounding toll for freedom and crush the forces of darkness and tyranny once and for all.

Gary Franchi is unavailable and on personal business this weekend, however, we’ve discussed this at length and are excited to lend the voice and resources of RTR and AFTF to this effort and explore our options with some willing new friends.

Please join me personally in Philadelphia this 4th of July as I travel to this historic ground and listen, learn, offer input and work with my new friends, sharing resources and information, education and inspiration and set aside difference in order to focus on the job at hand. Winning this war and restoring this republic.

To The American Patriot Community,

This July 4th, Providence once again provides us with Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love, for all free and independent souls to come together as the patriots once did in 1776, and as we are doing now in 2007, to say no to tyranny as we must and shall do, for the situation is dire, we must restore the Constitution, free our nation and the world from the evil specter of a cartel that is destroying the cause of human dignity, liberty, civilization and life
on the planet.

The Philadelphia Emergency Antiwar Convention is our opportunity, to “join or die” in a movement greater than its multifaceted constituents. We shall defend and employ those first principles of this country, to stop the wars of empire, that are enslaving citizen and soldier alike, and subjugating the planet to perpetual war.

Ours is a nonviolent movement in the tradition of Martin Luther King Jr. that shall overcome. The antiwar majority on the left and right have had enough. Cindy Sheehan who first made this call for all those who want to go beyond this ‘two party system, bought and paid for by the war machine, must come together. The war has not stopped and totalitarianism advances, this is our common crisis. America is almost all divided and conquered, but we join in a “United Front” that is already ringing the liberty bell once again.

Ring the bell by going to the http://actindependent.org website. Listen to our radio spot where Cindy Sheehan gives the 9/11 truth movement a kiss of thanks, and we declare the Second American Revolution, but only if you spread the word.

Thank You,

Bruce Marshall
Co-Coordinator of the Philadelphia Emergency Antiwar Convention

Police Nix Meeting Near World Leaders; Public Forum 6 Kilometres From Montebello Too Close for Comfort

Police have derailed plans for a public forum on the Security and Prosperity Partnership that was to take place six kilometres from where the leaders of Canada, Mexico and the U.S. will gather next month for a summit.

ACTION ALERT: Stop SPP talks, consult with Canadians now

July 12, 2007

Dear Concerned Canadians,

As reported on the front-page of the Ottawa Citizen and in numerous other media reports, “Police have derailed plans for a public forum on the Security and Prosperity Partnership that was to take place six kilometres from where the leaders of Canada, Mexico and the U.S. will gather next month for a summit.” (See Ottawa Citizen Police nix meeting near world leaders, July 12, 2007)

The news report states, “The forum was scheduled for August 19, the day before Prime Minister Stephen Harper, U.S. President George W. Bush and Mexican President Felipe Calderon are due to start two days of meetings on the security partnership, a controversial initiative aimed at more closely aligning the three countries in a variety of areas.”

Frederic Castonguay, the municipality of Papineauville’s general manager, “confirmed he had been called by Mr. Guy Cote (of the Quebec provincial police), who told him that the police and U.S. army need the community centre as a base of operations for summit security.” Despite the fact that the Council of Canadians had paid its $100 deposit for the space, Mr. Castonguay said the police, “didn’t want us to rent it to anyone because they need the room there to put equipment and special vehicles. There was no choice.”

The Council of Canadians in coalition with other organizations, including the Canadian Labour Congress, the Canadian Union of Public Employees, the Communications, Energy & Paperworkers Union of Canada, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, Common Frontiers-Canada and the Quebec Network on Continental Integration, had planned to hold a public forum on the Security and Prosperity Partnership in the nearby community with Maude Barlow and a panel of writers, academics and parliamentarians. This public forum was intended to promote broader public awareness and citizen engagement on this important issue. An alternate location for the public forum is now being sought.

Linda McQuaig wrote recently in the Toronto Star, “Given the centrality of (national security and energy, as well as trade), one would have thought that any changes – especially changes that would make Canada more like the U.S. – should involve wide consultation with the Canadian people. But exactly the opposite is happening. The public has been completely shut out of the SPP process…No public consultations have been planned for Montebello. Indeed, security measures will ensure the leaders hear as little as possible from the people.”

For more information on the Council of Canadians campaign against the Security and Prosperity Partnership, along with a wide range of analysis and background materials on this issue, please go to IntegrateThis.ca.

Activists are encouraged to send their own version of the following message to Prime Minister Stephen Harper at pm@pm.gc.ca or click here to send a letter using the form on our website:

Prime Minister Harper,

As a member of the Council of Canadians, I am calling on you to stop talks on the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, including the upcoming leaders summit this August 20-21 in Montebello, and to consult with Canadians on this critical issue.

I was outraged to read that a public forum near Montebello with writers, academics and parliamentarians wanting to speak on this issue was blocked because the police and U.S. army wanted the community centre it was to be held at as a base of operations for summit security.

I am opposed to the SPP, which includes the no-fly list (the SPP states, “Develop comparable standards and procedures…for passenger screening”); pesticide residues (it says, “Work to resolve differences in pesticide maximum residue limits that may be barriers to trade…”); the tar sands (it calls for, “Greater economic production from the oil sands”); and civil rights (it calls for, “sharing of terrorist watch list data and the establishment of appropriate linkages between Canada, the United States and Mexico.”)

I also believe that the North American Competitiveness Council should be disbanded. Corporations such as Manulife Financial, Home Depot and Wal-Mart should not be shaping economic policy between Canada and the United States.

I urge you to keep the promise you made in your Throne Speech that “significant international treaties will be submitted for votes in Parliament.” I believe that the Security and Prosperity Partnership should be subject to public hearings, as well as brought to the House of Commons for a full debate and vote.

I look forward to your response.

August 9, 2007

I was listening to Montel Williams show this morning.. most mornings I do. His show is one of the few that discusses important issues not like alot of the mindless fluff that we see.

They were discussing individual responsibility. At the end of the show, one of the guests, an intelligent young woman said what we just don’t seem to hear too often in these times. She said that we must never forget that we, the people, pay the salaries of the politicians. So many people seem to be so afraid of their government. So remember those are the people that we pay and that we need to come together as a nation, otherwise we will perish. Wise words indeed in these troubled times.

My sentiments exactly. We need to stop bickering among ourselves, come together as a nation which means pulling ourselves away from all the mindless crap on tv, etc, and start to do something about the mess we’re in, in other words get off of our asses and do something! Nudge, nudge, you people in your slumber, it’s time to wake up.

How to Create an Angry American. Had Enough?

So how much more does it take for the 30% of the American people that still support the Bush administration to wake up and see it for what it is ….to demand impeachment and have the Bush administration tried for high crimes of treason and crimes against humanity.

This would also send a clear message that the next administration will be held accountable by the American people. We must never forget that the people are the masters and government the servants.

At times I often think of what Dian Fossey once said: “There are times when one cannot accept facts for fear of shattering one’s being”.

This doesn’t surprise me… The American people have been asleep for so long and the criminals in government have been slowly at work in taking the steps necessary to gain total control over the masses.

People like Alex Jones of infowars.com have been ridiculed and called a lunatic for years now but Alex has been warning the American people for years now about loss of liberties.

The majority of the American people want impeachment but it’s been a difficult process. If the majority of congress had the backbone and the courage to do their duty in serving the American people, not the criminal administration now in power, impeachment would have already been done. The world can’t wait.

Ten Reasons Why George Bush and Dick Cheney Must Be Impeached

1. Violating the United Nations Charter by launching an illegal “War of Aggression” against Iraq without cause, using fraud to sell the war to Congress and the public, misusing government funds to begin bombing without Congressional authorization, and subjecting our military personnel to unnecessary harm, debilitating injuries, and deaths.

2. Violating U.S. and international law by authorizing the torture of thousands of captives, resulting in dozens of deaths, and keeping prisoners hidden from the International Committee of the Red Cross.

3. Violating the Constitution by arbitrarily detaining Americans, legal residents, and non-Americans, without due process, without charge, and without access to counsel.

4. Violating the Geneva Conventions by targeting civilians, journalists, hospitals, and ambulances, and using illegal weapons, including white phosphorous, depleted uranium, and a new type of napalm.

5. Violating U.S. law and the Constitution through widespread wiretapping of the phone calls and emails of Americans without a warrant.

6. Violating the Constitution by using “signing statements” to defy hundreds of laws passed by Congress.

7. Violating U.S. and state law by obstructing honest elections in 2000, 2002, 2004, and 2006.

8. Violating U.S. law by using paid propaganda and disinformation, selectively and misleadingly leaking classified information, and exposing the identity of a covert CIA operative working on sensitive WMD proliferation for political retribution.

9. Subverting the Constitution and abusing Presidential power by asserting a “Unitary Executive Theory” giving unlimited powers to the President, by obstructing efforts by Congress and the Courts to review and restrict Presidential actions, and by promoting and signing legislation negating the Bill of Rights and the Writ of Habeas Corpus.

10. Gross negligence in failing to assist New Orleans residents after Hurricane Katrina, in ignoring urgent warnings of an Al Qaeda attack prior to Sept. 11, 2001, and in increasing air pollution causing global warming.

How About a Common Sense Revolution?

Vote for Congressman Ron Paul for President.

Brief Overview of Congressman Paul’s Record

* He has never voted to raise taxes.

* He has never voted for an unbalanced budget.

* He has never voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership.

* He has never voted to raise congressional pay.

* He has never taken a government-paid junket.

* He has never voted to increase the power of the executive branch.

* He voted against the Patriot Act.

* He voted against regulating the Internet.

* He voted against the Iraq war.

* He does not participate in the lucrative congressional pension program.

* He returns a portion of his annual congressional office budget to the U.S. treasury every year.

Congressman Paul introduces numerous pieces of substantive legislation each year, probably more than any single member of Congress.
