New Shift By White House To
President Ties Critics To ‘Slave Owners”; Planning
With ground cover already laid down against his critics, equaling them to Nazi appeasers, President Bush has opened a new front in an attempt to sell his failed Iraq policy, seeking to galvanize the Christian Right, saying that he sees a “third awakening” aiding his fight against global terrorism, now equating his critics to “slave owners”.
Speaking to conservative journalists in the White House Tuesday, President Bush, according to the Washington Post “notices more open expressions of faith among people he meets during his travels, and he suggested that might signal a broader revival similar to other religious movements in history.”
“Bush noted that some of Abraham Lincoln's strongest supporters were religious people "who saw life in terms of good and evil" and who believed that slavery was evil. Many of his own supporters, he said, see the current conflict in similar terms.”
Many contend that the President has run a concurrent “religious” policy agenda, next to his domestic and foreign policies and this wouldn’t be the first occasion that President Bush has placed his battle in a religious light.
Soon after the attacks of September 11th, the President begin is war of words, vowing to rid the world of 'evil-doers'.
"And we'll be alert. Your government is alert. The governors and mayors are alert that evil folks still lurk out there.
“It’s good to see the President getting back on-course,” said Holly Martins, Publisher of Axis of Evil Illustrated, a quarterly publication, that is rumored to be a house magazine for the Project for The New American Century
“Cheney, Rummy, the guys running for Congress,” continued Martins, “Can play with the Nazi and Appeaser themes ... They’ve been doing a fantastic job with it. But it’s time now for the President to bring the hammer of God into it.”
Cheney, while appearing on ‘Meet The Press’ on Sunday, didn’t break out this new “slave owner” label, but did slam the administration critics with “when they see the kind of debate that we’ve had in the United States, suggestions, for example, that we should withdraw U.S. forces from Iraq, simply feed into that whole notion, validates the strategy of the terrorists.”
However, with an uncharacteristic pressing from host Tim Russert, Cheney was forced into nearly an hour of relentless spinning, sending him to the hospital after the program, complaining of “dizziness”.
Bush Using God and Slave Owner Label “Something Everyday People Will Understand”
The President’s comments came on a day where he was slammed by Democrats, for his politicizing the somber occasion of the 5th Anniversary with a national television address in which he continued to link his invasion and occupation of Iraq with the broader fight against global terrorism.
With advance notice that his speech would not be political, the President went out and stated "Whatever mistakes have been made in
This drew a harsh response from Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, who offered that the President was "more consumed by staying the course in
"The American people deserved better last night," said Reid. "They deserved a chance to reclaim that sense of unity, purpose and patriotism that swept through our country five years ago."
Republicans, in turn, defended the President and his Iraq policy, with House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) saying "I listen to my Democrat friends, and I wonder if they're more interested in protecting terrorists than in protecting the American people."
“The President can let Cheney, Rummy and the guys running for Congress fight it out,” said Martins, “using the Fascist, Nazi and Appeaser stuff. That goes over a lot of peoples’ heads. Invoking God and comparing the Democrats to slave owners ... That is something everyday people will understand.”
White House, Military Eyeing Eminent Domain Law To Clear
Following the Washington Post report of a classified document that indicated the situation in Western Iraq was “dire” and “lost politically”, the White House has been huddling with the military to, first, put a new PR spin on the report and to strategize a solution to turn things around.
Sources tell The Garlic that one of the top options on the table, and being heavily discussed, is implementing in Iraq, the President’s “Clean City Act” the measure the White House pushed following last years’ Supreme Court ruling upholding an Eminent Domain case in Connecticut that had the City of New London, Conn. (Kelo v. City of New London, 125 S. Ct. 2655) condemning 15 homes under the eminent domain law, as a means of putting forward an "economic development" plan on behalf of private developers.
“The Clean City Act seems to winning favor,“ offered Dix Whitcomb, editor of the newsletter "Our Laws Are Different"
“The military is open to anything that will give them an upper hand. Where the discussion is,” said Whitcomb, “is whether or not to annex Western Iraq to the United States, so the Supreme Court ruling holds up with taking the property, or to translate something comparable, if possible, in the Iraq Parliament.”
Whitcomb says that, though Cheney and Rumsfeld are “holding out for a military-only option”, the President is eager to use the “Clean City Act”, believing, if successful, it can be used in other areas of Iraq, and the Middle East.”
“They don’t want to characterize it as saving his legacy, but it is pretty close.”
Another option to stabilize Western Iraq that is gaining favor is, if U.N. Ambassador John Bolton is not confirmed to continue in his post, the President will name him as a “Special Envoy” to the
President Bush is now tying his critics to ‘Slave Owners” and is planning to impose Eminent Domain On Anbar Province as a means of curbing the violence and winning his War On Iraq
