NOW THE WARMONGERING SUPER NEOCON WILLIAM KRISTOL DEMANDS BUSH IGNORES DEMOCRACY!

Not content with using their influence to start wars on behalf of the right-wing Zionist Israeli government, the US neoconservatives are now attempting to erode what’s left of American democracy by using their influence to impede Congressional due process.

William Kristol, ultra right-wing neoconservative editor of Rupert Murdoch’s The Weekly Standard, tells his readers: “Surely President Bush must realize that the Democratic Congress is not merely struggling with him over policy, or jousting for political advantage. The Democrats in Congress are trying to destroy his presidency.” Well, yes – that’s what the American people voted the Democrats in to do. Kristol goes on: “They are trying to cripple his ability to govern for the rest of his term.” Right again. “And they are not far from succeeding.” Well, if they do succeed, that’s good Kristol; what’s the problem? Democracy’s working!

But then Kristol displays his anti-democracy credentials. He asks: “Will Bush fight back?” Naturally, Kristol hopes he does. He tells the President that “…Attorney General Gonzales and Deputy Attorney General McNulty should go.” In fact Kristol says the President should “…get rid of them now,” and then “appoint strong conservatives to replace them.” Kristol then goes off the deep end and suggests that the President “…insist on their prompt confirmation.” Never mind that there should be any Congressional oversight in the matter.

But all this is just a warm up for what he’s really leading up to. He writes: “Senate judiciary chair Pat Leahy threatened last week to hold up any such confirmation until his committee had access to testimony from Karl Rove.” That’s right! Leahy has had the nerve in Kristol’s book to ‘threaten’ to get at the truth. Whatever next?

Well, according to Kristol, the next thing you know Leahy and his committee will be wanting to know is what else Karl Rove was getting up to with various departments of the government. Kristol recommends that Bush ignore the democratic process saying: “And if Leahy holds up confirmation hearings for the nominee for attorney general--if there is one--Bush needs to make his man acting attorney general in the meantime, rather than allowing Democrats to impede his ability to govern.” Kristol is demanding that Bush completely ignore the democratic process and dictate for himself who should be the nation’s attorney general. Kristol is demanding that the checks and balances that govern and oversee executive power be removed. He is demanding that the very tenets that are the cornerstone of American democracy not only be removed, but that Bush unilaterally appoint a right-wing attorney general without any referral to the democratic process and, to top it off, that Karl Rove should not be held accountable for any part he has played in of the actions that the Bush administration has taken since being in power.

And then, just to really show the world what he thinks of American democracy and what’s left of the American justice system, he demands that the President pardon I. ‘Scooter’ Libby!

William Kristol has finally made the step from lunatic warmongering neocon to dangerous fascist.

How is writing a column "dangerous"?

You might find his ideas deplorable but he isn't dangerous.

Prior to March 2003 Kristol and his fellow neocons were jumping up and down demanding war against Iraq. They got what they wanted. Now he and his neocon friends are demanding the process of democracy be ignored - that makes him dangerous, especially if they get what they want.

Writing a column isn't dangerous; it's what is written that can be dangerous. Only fascists would not find Kristol's ideas 'deplorable'. Only fascists would not find these ideas dangerous.

Only Israel benefits from these endless Middle East wars. Iraq is the beginning. As we commit war-crimes in Baghdad, the US gov't commits treason at home by opening mail, eliminating habeas corpus, using the judiciary to steal private lands, banning books like "America Deceived" from Amazon and Wikipedia, conducting warrantless wiretaps and engaging in illegal wars on behalf of AIPAC. Soon, another US false-flag operation will occur (sinking of an Aircraft Carrier by Mossad) and the US will invade Iran. Then we'll invade Syria, then Saudi Arabia, then Lebanon (again) then ....
Final link (before Google Books bends to gov't demands and censors the title):
America Deceived (book)

Not for nothing...'America Decieved' is a poorly written piece of trash. Beating the censorship drum for that book is setting yourself up for defeat, just as citing Loose Change as a good doc on the 9/11 inside job (the definitive doc BTW is 9/11 demolitions over at www.911weknow.com). Otherwise I agree with you, say goodnight, Gracie...

Kristol and friends are not so much worried about Bush's 'pResidency' as they are about their own survival in the political realm. Given Murdoch underwrites the NeoCons, his 'news' shows are also in danger of being undermined as they have based their whole existence on FAUX-conservatism and outrageousness. The 'Weekly Standard' has been operating at a loss since its inception and has rarely if ever exceeded 60,000 in circulation, many of them gratis mailings. Kristol is in danger of losing his own veneer-thin prestige.

It would be indeed nicer if the war-whores had a month of military service of their own to share amongst themselves, but, like the Bush-bunnies, they have to act the March hares (and the beginning of the Iraqi misadventure was begun in March for good reason ... er, instinct) based on others being in the middle of the mess.

*America Alone* (Halper/Clarke; Cambridge; 2004/05) is a good book on the emergence of the NeoCons.

Ship Kristol's zionist ass to his beloved Israel, before someone ices him.

To the first commentor asking about how "dangerous" writing can be? Kristol is one of the lead authors of PNAC(those guys who brought us the Iraq and soon to be Iran war). Also look up his father's bio. The nut doesn't fall far from the tree.

I remember reading Kristol's comments about America needing a new Pearl Harbor. This is a guy with Jeffrey Dahmer eye's and a killer bloodlust to match, so anything he say's we know exactly where it's coming from. I think God has a special plan for these demons of the lower classes who think they're king of the castle. So don't look down little Willi. Your brothers below want you back in time for the roast feast.

Kristol not a dangerous guy? NO WAY, he's a very dangerous guy. He knows all about 9/11, let's put it that way. He's a top-level mole--check out Webster G. Tarpley's excellent book _9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA_...

You sure can attract the loons, Lataan.

Indeed Anonymous; and as one of the loons that believe the nonsense that the government has fed you, you demonstrate it convincingly.
