George Bush Must Be President!
Election Night - November 7th 2000 - John Ellis of Fox News calls the state of Florida for George Bush after getting off the phone with Jeb Bush saying, "Jebbie says we got it!"
John Ellis is the first cousin of Jeb Bush and George Bush.
Within the next four minutes, NBC, CBS, CNN, and ABC all followed suit. Later the networks retracted their prediction of a Gore victory and placed Florida back into the "undecided" column.
And then at approximately 2:30 am, with some 85% of the votes counted in Florida and Bush leading Gore by more than 100,000 votes, the networks declared that Bush had carried Florida, and had been elected President. However, most of the remaining votes to be counted in Florida were located in three heavily Democratic counties and as their votes were reported Gore began to gain on Bush. By 4:30 am Gore had narrowed Bush's margin to less than 2,000 votes, and the networks retracted their predictions that Bush had won Florida and the Presidency. Gore, who had privately conceded the election to Bush now withdrew his concession and announced that he would wait for a recount.
34 days after the election The Supreme Court ended the Florida recount.
According to the Justice Scalia:
"The counting of votes … threatens irreparable harm to Governor Bush, and to the country, by casting a cloud upon what he claims to be the legitimacy of his election."
Reaction to the Court's ruling:
As Yale law professor Akhil Reed Amar noted, the five conservative Justices "failed to cite a single case that, on its facts, comes close to supporting its analysis and result."
Vanderbilt professor Suzanna Sherry said, "There is really very little way to reconcile this opinion other than that they wanted Bush to win."
As Vincent Bugliosi wrote in None Dare Call It Treason:
If, indeed, the Court, as the critics say, made a politically motivated ruling (which it unquestionably did), this is tantamount to saying, and can only mean, that the Court did not base its ruling on the law. And if this is so (which again, it unquestionably is), this means that these five Justices deliberately and knowingly decided to nullify the votes of the 50 million Americans who voted for Al Gore and to steal the election for Bush … The stark reality, and I say this with every fiber of my being, is that the institution Americans trust the most to protect its freedoms and principles committed one of the biggest and most serious crimes this nation has ever seen--pure and simple, the theft of the presidency. And by definition, the perpetrators of this crime have to be denominated criminals.
Regardless of the Supreme Court decision … Al Gore was the choice of Florida's voters … The core finding of the eight news organizations that conducted a review of disputed Florida ballots was … By any measure, Gore won.
Why was it so important that at every step of the recount process … from hired Republican thugs bused down to disrupt the recount … to the Supreme Court ultimately stopping the recount … Why was it absolutely necessary to install George Bush as President?
What did he accomplish in his first 233 Days in office?
He moved to block federal aid to foreign groups that offered counseling or any other assistance to women in obtaining abortions.
He created the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives to distribute government money to religious groups.
He ordered military strikes against Iraq. American bombs destroyed radar stations near the capital, Baghdad, killing two people.
He reversed a rule reducing the levels of arsenic in drinking water.
He rejected the Kyoto Treaty.
He refused to help consumers harmed by the California's electricity crisis.
He opposed comprehensive protections for patients in HMOs.
He refused to provide adequate funding for low-income energy assistance.
He decided to allow cable TV and telephone monopolies to expand.
He endorsed a bankruptcy bill that excessively punishes honest consumers hit by unexpected debts.
He proposed killing a program to help low-income consumers who cannot afford to open bank accounts.
He withdrew a proposal to end government testing for salmonella in school lunches.
He spent 54 days at his ranch in Crawford, Tex., 38 days at Camp David, and a four-day weekend at the Bush family compound in Kennebunkport, Me., which works out to slightly more than 40 percent of his time.
Why was it so important to get this guy in office?
Was all that worth it?
Was all that worth corrupting the institution Americans trust the most to protect its freedoms and principles?
And then … 234 days into his first term as president … September 11th.
Since then 4,582 Americans have died in Iraq and Afghanistan.
23,000-100,000 more have been wounded.
An estimated 1.2 million Iraqis have been killed.
And most importantly to George Bush and his cronies … Over 467 billion dollars has been spent on the wars. And is currently being spent at the rate of almost two hundred thousand dollars a minute.
I guess that's enough money to subvert the rule of law, corrupt The Supreme Court of The United States, destroy the Constitution, Corrupt Mainstream Media, and turn this country into a Fascist State.
When we're talking about that kind of money … Screw the people … George Bush Must Be President!

My Favorite(?) Excerpt
The discrepancy between the kind of society many Germans thought they were building and the reality of the horror of the Third Reich presents one of the most intriguing questions of our age. How could Fascism -- have happened in a modern, industrialized, educated nation?

Deep Green Resistance - Strategy to Save the Planet
Aric McBay, Lierre Keith, and Derrick Jensen
For years, Derrick Jensen has asked his audiences, “Do you think this culture will undergo a voluntary transformation to a sane and sustainable way of life?” No one ever says yes.
Deep Green Resistance starts where the environmental movement leaves off: industrial civilization is incompatible with life. Technology can’t fix it, and shopping—no matter how green—won’t stop it. To save this planet, we need a serious resistance movement that can bring down the industrial economy. Deep Green Resistance evaluates strategic options for resistance, from nonviolence to guerrilla warfare, and the conditions required for those options to be successful.

The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder
by Vincent Bugliosi
"I hope that at some time in the near future a courageous U.S. attorney general, U.S. attorney, state attorney general, or district attorney in America who is committed to the rule of law and who has dedicated his career to enforcing the law fairly against all who, big or small, violate it, will hear the cries for justice from the graves of the thousands upon thousands of men, women, and children who had their lives violently cut short because of the lies of a man who smiled through it all. And that, with a sense of uncompromising righteousness, he will take the ample case I have laid out in this book before an American jury to let them decide whether George W Bush is guilty or not guilty of murder, and if so, what his punishment should be.
Even if this doesn't happen and what I have said in this book receives all the attention of a new fly in the forest, I do know that someone had to say what is written on the pages of this book."

Rules for Radicals
by Saul D Alinsky
"What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be. The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away."
In 1971, Saul Alinsky wrote an entertaining classic on grassroots organizing titled Rules for Radicals.
For Alinsky, organizing is the process of highlighting what is wrong and convincing people they can actually do something about it.

The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism
by Naomi Klein
Naomi Klein's The Shock Doctrine advances a truly unnerving argument: historically, while people were reeling from natural disasters, wars and economic upheavals, savvy politicians and industry leaders nefariously implemented policies that would never have passed during less muddled times. As Klein demonstrates, this reprehensible game of bait-and-switch isn't just some relic from the bad old days. It's alive and well in contemporary society, and coming soon to a disaster area near you.
