Dis-Assembling the Dissembling

As the crookedest man to ever hold the White house, and his legion of lying carpetbagger seconds, stepped up to the mics of the world this week and practically admitted that they had LIED the US into a War ! :
Bush and team say No connection between Iraq and al Queda !
Now of course the game begins once again to "get the hard goods" on where Chimp&Co actually did something more than IMPLY that Iraq was in bed with Bin Laden . No doubt this Admin will try to play the " geee we're sorry america misunderstood... but we never said that.... did we dick ? naww I don't think so".
Rightards work very hard on their "dissembling" tactics --- like picking their words very carefully to make sure they can deny at a later date, what they "implied" earlier. This kind of crap wouldn't be able to go on IF we had a Media that wasn't in bed with this administration, and would actually stand up and ask for clarification in REAL TIME as the allegations are made.
But the Folks at DemoUnderground have come across what Could turn out to be the " smoking gun" on this issue.But they may be wrong about it smoking... nonetheless the search is on to unmask this scumbag admin and another in it's long list of lies.
Check their thread on :
Bush's Congressional resolution to congress

Another addition to the " smoking gun" files just in from Tim Maddog.... this one alluding to This Admin being " Hot for Hussain" in the first minutes after 911 ( as told by Wesley Clark no less).
Discussion at Morons org
The original article they're discussing

The Fix has been in with this admin since the beggining. They're taking any crisis that presenets itself and using it to accomplish their own pre-determined agenda . Somebody should be drawing up the impeachment papers on this presidential fraud as we speak.

State of the Art LYING !

Those who know me know of my fond interest in not only the politics of this Fascism wave sweeping our land, but the Fundamental Psychology & Sociological techniques used by authoritarian to hoist this canard upon groups of people. One good inroad to revelation in that area is to look at the "anatomy of Lies" and their structures that are being used ( and allegedly accepted by the volks) to pass this off.

Along those lines Josh Marshall had a nice piece in the WashMo exposing some of the basic pattern of Deception used by Bush & his Admin :
The Post-Modern President
Definitely worth a read to be aware of the particular " style" of Lying this admin is laying down.

Here's a short list of the techniques he extrapolates in his article :

1)pass off preexisting agenda items as solutions to particular problems with which, for the most part, they have no real connection. Invoking the problem of the moment to sell a predetermined policy agenda.

2) Use a confidently expressed, but currently undisprovable assertion ,a forthright speaking style which convinces many people that they're telling the truth even when they're lying.But there was no way to know for sure if it is a Lie unless we did what They wanted.

3) Things go wrong ?-- make yet more confidently expressed, but currently undisprovable assertions.

4)ridicule the possibility that a given policy might actually have its predictable adverse consequences,... deny those consequences once they have already occurred... or--failing that-- insist against all evidence that those consequences were part of the plan all along.

5) use strong incentive to delegitimize the experts....Revisionist ideologues seek to expose "the facts" as nothing more than the spin of experts blinded by their own unacknowledged biases.For them, ignoring the experts and their 'facts' is not only necessary to advance their agenda, but a virtuous effort in the service of a higher cause.

6)This same tendency to dismiss expertise shaped the whole war effort....Expert analysis that isn't politically helpful simply gets ignored.

Don't Fall for these forms of Deception people !

Egging the Governator ?

Poor Ahhnuld can't seem to catch a break in his vaunted grab at trying to be King of California. First he ducks out like a little chicken sissy from the Debate , then some fine citizen ( and model for us all-ha) flings an Egg onto him as he's about to spew his vacuous pablum upon the masses.
Hasta La Vista... Embryo

And then the poor dunderhead cant think of anything to do but ask for Bacon with a side of 1st amendment rights.
. "This guy owes me bacon now," he joked later. "I mean there's no two ways about it because, I mean, you can't just have eggs without bacon. But this is all part of, you know, the free speech."

This recall gets funnier by the day. It's my impression that it will be voted down simply because the whole thing has become such a circus.

Ken Lay goes out the back door !?

Never let it be said that texas Twit isn't pulling all the strings he can for his best criminal cronies and carpetbaggers.
Here Bush is pushing to pass legislation that will let thieves like his friend Ken Lay off the hook !
The "Enron Escape" Clause
How dumbMerikans can sit still for such backroom criminality is beyond me.
