And So The Kabuki Ends....

The pretenses of Moral Outrage about america openly supporting Torture appears to be in the closing stages.

It appears that the white house will 'compromise' and allow some dithering around with the War Crimes Act, specifically Section 3, so that it will still be ok to openly support the Torturing of not only Non-Americans, but as most folks understand the long term goal, that this will allow the president to openly support the Torturing of American Citizens for reasons of Domestic Political Gain.

Ah yes.....

So much for the Last Pretenses of any commitment to Moral Standards.....

Putting The White Christian America Back Into JesusLand

a word of caution: It is very important to recognize that H.R. 2679 is only one of a number of bills, proposed by by the Christian right and somewhere in the legislative process or which - if not succesfully passed in any given year - will simply be resubmitted the following year, and which have been crafted to advance Christian nationalist, theocratic, theonomic, or reconstructionist agendas ( or any combination of those .

In other words, please don't come away from this post with the impression that if H.R. 2679 is not turned into law that all will be hunky-dory. Far from it. Freedom takes constant vigilance.

[ cf H.R. 2679, The "Christian Supremacy Act", To Hit House Floor ]
Great Progress in the Light Of "Path To 9/11" - from the NewChristianRightWingHollywood where facts arer no longer a bothering tidbit that need to get in the way of the marketting plan.

Besides you have to love the opening quote Troutefishing started that piece:
Our job is to reclaim America for Christ, whatever the cost. As the vice regents of God, we are to exercise godly dominion and influence over our neighborhoods, our schools, our government, our literature and arts, our sports arenas, our entertainment media, our news media, our scientific endeavors -- in short, over every aspect and institution of human society. - D. James Kennedy

Hum.... once upon a time, when all was controlled by the state, gosh, that was considered Totalitarianism....

But I guess in JesusLand, it is some great new mandate!!!

Gosh, why DO these people Hate America? And those of us who swore our oaths of Honor to defend the very constitution they wish to turn into toilet paper????

And Still More Waffling....

Gosh, once again the Greatest Military Leader, EVER!!!! has shifted his position.

Could it be that he read about tongodeon whining in Kerry vs. Bush vs. Bush On Foreign Policy and knew it was time to go for the Stronger Stand!!
President Bush said Wednesday he would order military action inside Pakistan if intelligence indicated that Osama bin Laden or other top terror leaders were hiding there. "Absolutely," Bush said in an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer.

With bin Laden still at large five years after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and believed to be hiding somewhere along the mountainous border between Afghanistan and Pakistan, Bush disputed any suggestion that Pakistan has not done enough to hunt down terrorist leaders.

[ cf Bush says he'd send troops into Pakistan ]
WOW!!!!

Say Good Night Pakistani Sense Of National Soveriegnty, and Hello To The Wonder Touch Of Your Bestest, Bestest, Bestest Friend.

Or is this just the most recent waffle in the waffling on which position the Current KlintonestaInChief is alledging is a position that he has held at least once in a political campaign season...
