Another Purge

It's Cheney as Stalin time again with yet another purge of non-radical elements, this time of anyone investigating the Bush/Cheney Co. Administration or disgraced GOP Rep. Randall "Duke" Cunningham (massive defense bribe taking) in the Justice Department, namely Federal District Court Judges who would do the right thing.

Just to give you a sense of how Politiburu this highly co-ordinated operation is, replacements include longtime Karl Rove employee, the guy charged with digging up the dirt on each and every Democrat, J. Timothy Griffin.

This is an out-and-out coup, the same castrating of our fair governmental system as Richard Nixon attempted to perform during his infamous Saturday Night Massacre, trying to get his Attorney General to fire Special Watergate Prosecutor Archibald Cox. But there won't be any Elliot Richardson to resign rather than do the dirty work, no deputy William Ruckelshaus defying partisanship and resigning in protest as well, just all the Robert Bork's, doing Bush and Cheney and Rove's corrupt business. Cheney learned from Nixon's mistakes, is being much more crafty this time, cloaking it in a provision inserted by his Party henchmen into the Patriot Act.

I guess we'll be relying on Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) to bring it up in the Senate.

Let's hope she makes merry hell for the Bushies.

Tell her she should.

My guess is Cheney/Rove are installing several republican hacks w/ subpoena power as a way of preemptively intimidating Dem Reps and Senators. As Congress begins its numerous probes and begins to uncover systemwide lawbreaking (from bribes to insider market activity to war crimes) you will see Cheney/Rove's handpicked prosecutors begin a blizzard of probes and indictments in return in order to cloud the landscape.

They're scum.
