THE KING'S PRESS CONFERENCE: I LOVE LIVING IN A POLICE STATE
Now you all know that I hate waking up and having a Elvis moment. I had a good American morning, I woke up and walked my dog past the homeless people sleeping on grates on my broken urban streets. And then midmorning I made the fatal mistake of turning the TV on to check on the world's events with my morning caffeine. And yes, there he was the King Criminal driving the podium for a "Special Presidential New Conference" grandstanding the View. Now other than I was not fully stocked and prepared with my Marshmallow Weaponery, it actually had some little highlights that were worth suffering. ( I do Hope to hell that Fitz was watching and taping). I am struck that he now out pretty much daily whoring his Illegal programs, as he was just on the screen less than 48 hours ago. It reminds me of Nixon, and how he went on camera EVERY chance he could snag to attempt to rewin the people.Sigh another Glory Watergate Memory. Fine, he can keep coming out and giving these Watch&Cringe Speechs, it does not make the Case for Innocence.
In some ways I do feel Imprisoned in my own country and having the King give speechs every two days does seem to confirm that the Regime is attempting to make their Own Laws is enforcing that Concern. For most of four years they operated in Complete Secrecy, and now because they are out every few hours telling us WHY they Broke the Laws and violated Constitution I am susposed to magically Absorb that revelation and feel oh-so-Safe ?
(1) First he kept humping the NSA spying program was Legal and the Constitution was NOT "circumvented" in ANY way . ( The more he said it with a snicker and a sneer and a stutter it continued to lose steam over the reporters). He is now saying that the World is a different place and those 1978 FISA laws just don't apply and that Micheal Hayden of NSA is USING the Spying the way that it needs to be used. He would not address that he basically has destroyed ANY credibility of the FISA Court or the legal process of That court. [ I could not help but wonder if the judges of the FISA court were watching and cringing]
The reporters tried to ask about the Illegal Spying ( and Finally that Damn "Eavesdropping" word has been deleted from the dialogue). The King made it pretty clear that he and Micheal Hayden had a stratgy meeting yesterday, and that it is going to be very difficult to give much information to ANY Upcoming Investigations without giving up National Secrets.
(2) Katrina came up in the dicussion. The President seemed a bit miffed and peaved that the State and New Orleans have not come up with alot of Preparedness Measures as the White House has requested.It is really hard to come up with Preparedness Plans when the state is in obvious shambles. Oh, and Nevermind that He has not been Forthcoming with the Documents and Data about WHO Knew What WHEN before Katrina whalloped NOLA into Oblivion. Never mind that there was 44 page MEMO warning the Whitehouse 48 hours before Katrina HIT. Nevermind that Brownie is a Criminal that should be charged with Knowing Endangerment and other crimes.
(3) Those Damn Abramoff Pictures came up atleast five times, and he was miffed that it was a subject that would not go away.He claims that he is photographed many times , especially at Christmas. He would not answer Where the Photos are, but it is clear that there are indeed photos.It was also VERY unclear if the Whitehouse has been Helpful to the case in supplying said photos.He repreatedly said he doesn't "know the guy". Yet, he Expressed NO concerns about the misuse of money, or that his chief folks are being Investigated for stealing and misusing millions of dollars, not even one iota of some of that fake "Ain't it awful" carpetbagger crapola.
(4) He also reminded us that his speech next week is going to be the same ol' "Peace& Prosperity" speech that he always gives. He is going to focus us on the Wondrous Economy. Good I will invite some Homeless and some Katrina Refugees up for that golden delicious moment. And hell Maybe even some Ford Employees.And maybe some homeless VETS with PTSD would like to come heave marshmallows with me as well.
(5)Here's the thing Mr.Bush don't come driving the podium in my living room unless you can say something Meaningfull or atleast half truthful. And don't come on my screen every 48 hours and try to convince me that you have the RIGHT to spy on me and my neighbors. You don't have the Right. Even Criminals get Air Time, but it doesn't make them law abiding. It's called Propaganda.
