2006 The Year The Chickenhawks will go home to roost
by Cindy Sheehan
Wed Dec 28, 2005 at 02:07:09 PM PDT

Since hot, hot Camp Casey in August, some amazing grass roots actions have taken place all over the country. People are starting to speak up and Congress has begun to take action against the criminal and neo-Fascist regime that tried to take over America.

* CindySheehan’s diary

From Camp Casey to Katrina to use of chemical weaponry and extraordinary rendition to illegally spying on American citizens without due process, Bushco has miserably failed our country and the world. We as Americans said "enough is enough." We sacrificed a lot when we showed up in DC and other cities around the country in the hundreds of thousands to protest against and show that we withdraw any consent to be governed by murderous thugs. We started to peacefully, but forcefully resist the notion that this government has any right to govern us when they have betrayed their offices and their sacred trusts as "defenders" of the Constitution so horribly.

This was also the year that we also began to hold such Republicans in Democratic clothing like: Hillary Clinton, Joe Lieberman, Joe Biden, and Diane Feinstein (list is my no means all inclusive) accountable for their support of what George is doing in Iraq. When we as Democrats elect our leaders we expect them to reject and loudly repudiate the murderous and corrupt policies of this administration: not support and defend them.

There are Camp Caseys in front of Hillary’s and Chuck Schumer’s offices in Long Island every Friday, as well as one in front of Diane Feinstein’s Los Angeles office on Fridays, also. There has been a Camp Casey in front of Kay Bailey Hutchinson’s office in Dallas since August. Several protestors have been arrested in Dallas exercising their First Amendment rights. We need to let these warmongers, as well as the Republican warmongers, know that we mean business when we say "bring them home now." Set up Camp Caseys in front of your Senator’s or Congress person’s office if they support George in his wars of aggression.

Gold Star Families for Peace ( www.gsfp.org ) is planning many activities for the first part of 2006. I would like to give you all a heads up on them, so you can make your plans accordingly to support us and to join us if at all possible.

On January 31st , we will be in Washington, DC for the State of the Union address when George gets in front of Congress and the world and lies through his teeth about how great everything is going in Iraq and here at home. His idiotic policies have ruined Iraq and New Orleans and made the world a more dangerous place...allowing that terrorist attacks have tripled world wide since he decided to "fight them over there." He also may be laying the ground work for further acts of needless aggression against Syria and Iraq. GSFP and representatives from other peace organizations and refugees from New Orleans will be gathering in DC to give the "Real State of the Union." Check our website for place and time.

For the Love of God, Can’t you Make Him Stop? Recently, it was revealed that George only interacts with four people: Laura, Condi, Karen Hughes and his Mom. His Mom, the Ice Queen who didn’t want her "pretty mind" burdened with the images of flag draped coffins coming home, lives in Houston. On President’s Day, (Feb. 20) we will be demonstrating in front of her house to implore her to forget about the obscene profits that her family and their friends are making off of this occupation and to beg her to finally do the right thing and make her son stop this insane war OF terror against the world. George and Dick are defiling the highest offices of the world and they need to resign. On President’s Day, when we have the day off, we need to demonstrate against the ones who are illegitimately in power, anyway. If you can’t make it to Houston, organize your own President’s Day protest.

The Camp Casey Peace Foundation will hold its first annual Peace Festival and Concert on April 4, 2006. April 4 th is the day Casey and Martin Luther King, Jr were killed. We want to turn it into a true day for celebrating peace. The Camp Casey Peace Foundation will be awarding the Casey Sheehan Peace Prize, a cash prize, to a young peace activist every year. We want to foster the growth of solving problems non-violently and young people are the ones who get killed in the gray haired old men’s wars. We are working on an exciting event and we will announce more details as the event draws closer.

Camp Casey Easter edition: We will be heading back to our leased land in Crawford April 11th to Easter, which is April 16th. Easter is a time of renewal and hopeful promises. Casey was killed on Palm Sunday and his body was returned to us in the cargo section of a United Airlines flight on Holy Saturday and we buried him two days after Easter. Last Easter Season was so painful to us. This Easter we will again be demonstrating in front of the man’s home who is responsible for such pain and abject heartache in the world. But, we will be there with a renewed sense of hope that the Chickenhawks will be sent out to pasture this year. Like Michael Moore, I want to be a fly on the wall when Bush and company are hauled out of the White House in handcuffs. Impeachment is not necessary for people who never were elected...eviction is what is needed. If you can’t join us in Crawford, set up your own Camp Casey near you.

In 2005, we learned that we have the power. We learned that we can’t rely on the propaganda media or the empty promises of most of our elected leadership. We learned that we need to be the change that we desire to see.

We learned that one person can and does make a difference.

We cannot relax in 2006. We cannot slip back into the evil of apathy and complacency that the neocons rejoice in. We need to keep pounding, working, and fighting. We need to support organizations like Gold Star Families for Peace, Veterans for Peace ( www.veteransforpeace.org ), Code Pink ( www.codepink4peace.org ) and Iraq Veterans Against the War ( www.IVAW.net ), or the Peace organization of your choice so we can continue our struggle for peace with justice. We need to support true American patriots like John Conyers who is calling for an investigation and censure for the lies that have cost us so much of our national human treasure.

2006 will be a great year for the people of our country. I know it.

It won’t be easy, but we will prevail and the struggle will be worth it.

Our angel of peace, Casey is standing by her side and yes many Americans are seeing the truth.

While bush lies, people have died and still die for his lies.

bush, cheney, rumsfeldt, rice, and all of those who support the evil we have done in the name of fighting for our country. If I hear that one more time I will turn the sound down. Why has it been ok to allow the murder of millions of Iraq people who did nothing to any of you, oh yes they the so called insurgents are killing, they are only doing what any one of you would do if someone invaded your country based on lies and phoney nobel cause.

Thank you Cindy and the Gold Star Mothers, many others who have supported you. This is not just about Casey, its about all your sons and daughters and if you are to stupid to
listen and really listen to what bush says in his phoney STATE OF The UNION of lies. send bush and his gang to Iraq and let them face what he has created. WATCH HIS WIRE ON THE BACK OF SHOULDERS,

Those who come home injured 55,000 or more paid the price for the rest of their lives, those who died will never have a family or be able to hold a son or daughter.

THE NEW AMERICAN REVOLUTION IS COMING

We as Americans are aghast to see our Federal Government manipulating and controlling the media and the free press, and we are aghast to see the withholding of information from the American public and the callous disregard for human suffering and loss of lives in Iraq, New Orleans, and Louisiana. I too read my Bible, and it tells me that you shall know them by their fruits and it also tells me, beware of he that sows doubt and discord among the people. Where are we as Americans to take our Country back? Where are we as the People to make sure our children, and our grandchildren and future generations know God, America and Freedom just as we all knew it because of the fight and sacrifice of my father, your father and everyone else’s father who was willing to risk everything for God, Freedom, their Country, and their fellow man?

Where are we? The government, this administration and elected officials will not give us our Country back, we must all work together to take it back now. Our founding fathers Jefferson, Madison, Washington, Adams and other’s, warned us that Tyranny and Oppression when it comes shall come under the guise of a foreign enemy. Jefferson himself took an oath upon the altar of the almighty and plead eternal hostility against tyranny of any form over the mind of man. Yet all around us every day we are witnessing martial law being forced upon on the streets of America and we are seeing our most fundamental rights of privacy and protections being stripped from us and we are losing every sense of what it is to be a free American in a free democratic society. People gave their hearts, their minds, their souls to assure America would always be Free for them, their families and all future generations.

I am not interested in a vision that calls for a new world community in this country at the expense of being an American. I am not interested in a world view that takes away my right to be Free from fear and want and my right of Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion, just as it’s stated on back of every World War II medal in this Country. I want my children, your children, my grandchildren and yours, to be proud of me and you, just like we are proud of those who went before us, who fought for our Country, fought for our freedoms and made us great. We as a people are being manipulated, controlled, deceived and denied our rights to be Free and to be an American. We cannot wait any longer to take our Country back. Their must be an immediate groundswell and a call for change from the American people and it must begin now. We will not get this time back, and we must act, we have to act, the time is now. We have every right to insist that of paramount importance is that we remain a free America, we keep our identity, and that the world continue to look upon us as a free democratic society. We can no longer afford the excuse of being caught up in our busy lives when the future of our Country, our grandchildren, and future generations are at risk. No generation before us ever did that. And never let it be said that we were the first.

We must take America back and we must take her back now. This movement must come from the people. It must begin now. Each and every one of us must take part in letting our voices and our resolve be heard in our cities, our towns, our states and throughout the Country. We cannot wait any longer. We must act now.

Sincerely,
Gary M. Lee, Mass. Lawyer 18+ years
Norwood, MA.
I am a father, husband, parent, citizen, concerned about the way freedom and liberty has been stolen from us, and more importantly from all future generations.

Right On, you are sir.

For those that can’t make it to DC, how about going down to the local "Public" Radio station. I don’t know about you, but in my hometown, it’s been co-opted by pro-bush goons that only allow NPR, local djs are for "entertainment only". If a bunch of citizens, a whole bunch, went down to the radio station’s board of directors meeting, perhaps you could have an ’intervention’.

One thing is clear. A dictator, a liar, and one who has commited treason against the very Constitution and People he is sworn to protect and defend, cannot provide a State of the Union.

Currently the Union is waiting to be reformed as the Constitutional Republic of its creation.

Hmmm...let’s break that down:
A dictator...too silly and immature to require a serious response. A true dictator would have you up against the wall for saying that about him, so obviously, your paranoia is showing.
A liar...sadly, with this allegatin you must also defame Clinton, Gore, Kerry, Hillary, and the secret service networks of Egypt, France, Russia, etc. Saddam fooled us into thinking he was equipped and prepared for "the mother of all wars". Saddam lied and the world believed him. His bluff is what became Saddam’s doom. After 9/11, you can’t yell "fire" in a crowded theater.
Committed treason...once again, you are blinded by your bias. The commander in chief in a time of war is SUPPOSE to do what Bush has authorized. Every war time president has authorized the exact same thing, including Clinton’s authorization for physical searches of suspected terrorists without a subpoena. The FISA laws were established for CRIMINAL prosecutions, particularly in the case of mafia and drug cartels. These criminal cases do not apply in a war setting. Habeus Corpus, rights to lawyers, etc are only applicable to criminal litigation, not to military war activities. How many german and japanese POW’s had lawyers in detention? None. How many spies in war time were caught AFTER we obtained a subpoena to check their correspondence. None. These civil rules of evidence have no application in war.

Please try not to appear so stupid in the future. If you can help it.

Gary,

Your message is heartfelt and profound and I hate to sound defeatist but Nov 3rd 2004 was all you needed to know about the future of this country. We are slowly but surely being driven into a burqa where faces are hidden and only the govt knows for sure.

We’re screwed. There is no organized effort big enough to fight the movement that has been thirty years in the making. Corporations have made sure they are the elite and you and I my friend, have become their wassals. No need to expound on it further.

Our failings will be revealed to the world by an outside force. It will be a haunting that will etch the martial coup d’etat in our memories forever and will be extremely difficult to reverse. At this point I can only muster enough energy to prepare for the worst.

I don’t believe in a God, per se, and don’t read the Bible but I can feel the oncoming rush of negative energy like I feel my toes in a bowl of hot water. Prepare my friend, your government has made us a target larger than life.

My best to you and yours............a 54 year old woman, college educated and wise in the world

Fact about her son:

Near the end of his tour of duty, the US invasion of Iraq began. Sheehan re-enlisted, knowing that his unit would be sent to Iraq.

Sheehan’s sister in law:

"We do not agree with the political motivations and publicity tactics of Cindy Sheehan. She now appears to be promoting her own personal agenda and notoriety at the expense of her son’s good name and reputation. The rest of the Sheehan Family supports the troops, our country, and our President, silently, with prayer and respect."

What other soldiers’ parents have to say:

Linda Ryan, mother of Corporal Marc T. Ryan, a Marine who was killed in Ramadi, says of Sheehan:

"She’s going about this not realizing how many people she’s hurting. When she refers to anyone killed in Iraq, she’s referring to my son. She doesn’t have anything to say about what happened to my son." [221]

On August 15, 2005, Matt and Toni Matula, parents of Matthew Matula, a Texas Marine killed in Iraq, requested that the white cross representing their dead son as a victim of the war in Iraq be removed, stating that they did not wish their son’s name to be part of an anti-war demonstration. Mr. Matula said:

"It’s fine for people to grieve their own way. It aggravates me to see them using other people’s names to further their cause."[222]

Natalie Healy, mother of Dan Healy, a Navy SEAL who was killed in the line of duty in Iraq, organized a rally on August 20, 2005 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire in order to counteract Sheehan’s message, stating:

"We just want to let the fellas know that we’re supporting them and that we’re not going to wimp out on them." [223]

Gary Qualls, whose son, Marine Corporal Louis Wayne Qualls, died in Iraq, started what was dubbed "Fort Qualls" in Crawford, Texas to counter the "Camp Casey" protests. Qualls has repeatedly removed the white cross bearing his son’s name from the Arlington West display set up by "Camp Casey." [224]

Gregg Garvey, whose 23 year old son died in Iraq, joined the pro-Bush counter protests stating "people have had enough Bush bashing", and that Sheehan "does not represent all of America". [225]

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART III
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART IV Disillusioned with the machinations of so-called “traditional” colleges, I became an adjunct instructor at several “for-profit” colleges. Thanks largely to the power and pervasiveness of the Internet, “for-profit” colleges (hereinafter for-profits) have become a growing phenomenon in America. They have also been the subject of much political debate and the focus of a Frontline special entitled College Inc. Unlike traditional (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART II
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART III PART IV Several years ago, a young lady came into the college where I was teaching to inquire about a full-time instructor’s position in the sociology department. She was advised that only adjunct positions were available. Her response was, “No thanks. Once an adjunct, always an adjunct.” Her words still echo in my mind. Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART I
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART II PART III PART IV When The Bill of Rights was added to the United States Constitution over two hundred years ago, Americans were blessed with many rights considered to be “fundamental.” One conspicuously missing, however, was the right to an education. This was not surprising given the tenor of the times. America was primarily an agrarian culture, and education, especially higher education, was viewed as a privilege reserved for the children of the rich and (...)

ONE SOLITARY LIFE, PART TWO

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

HOW MUCH CORRUPTION CAN DEMOCRACY ENDURE?

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

DEMOCRACY IN THE HANDS OF IDIOTS, PART TWO

Imagine, if you will, that the United States government passes a law banning advertisers from sponsoring commercials on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show or Rupert Murdoch’s Fox (Faux) “News” Network. On one hand, there would be two decided advantages to this ban: The National IQ would undoubtedly increase several percentage points, and manipulative pseudo-journalists would no longer be able to appeal to the basest instincts in human nature for ratings and profit while (...)

DEMOCRACY IN THE HANDS OF IDIOTS

LIVE, from the State that brought you Senator Joseph McCarthy, Wisconsin voters now proudly present, fresh from his recall election victory, Governor Scott Walker! At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor. This, after all, is a man who openly declared he is trying to destroy the rights of workers through a “divide and conquer” strategy; who received 61% of the (...)

PEOPLE WITHOUT SOULS

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
