Homeland InSecurity: The White House should be renamed the Heart of Darkness
A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL
Treason and lawbreaking have become so banal in the Bush Administration, the public and the media hardly bat an eye.
But the politically motivated "redistribution" of homeland security funds -- away from major potential terrorist targets like New York City (9/11) and Washington, D.C. -- makes the words traitor and Orwellian inadequate to describe the treachery of the Busheviks.
Here is what one of our readers had to comment. We’ll let you read it while we try to regain our composure and fathom this diabolical move:
Thanks Barbara. We’ve calmed down now.
Okay, now the most likely scenario, beyond chronic incompetence, is that Karl Rove wanted more funds to go to Congressional areas where the Republicans need to strengthen their voter base for the mid-term elections. Bush’s Department of Homeland InSecurity "judged that the nation's capital is a 'low-risk' city and that the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge and Empire State Building are not worthy of 'national icon' status. By contrast, those terrorism magnets of Kansas City and St. Louis -- both by happenstance in Henke's home state of Missouri -- received boosts in funds. Other winners: the horses of Louisville, the cattle of Omaha and five cities in Jeb Bush's Florida.”
So the two cities that have been hit by terrorists had their “Homeland Security” funding dramatically cut in order to woo Republican votes in red states! This is beyond betrayal: it puts our lives at risk. It is criminal negligence.
Furthermore, the extreme dishonest and juvenile lies that the Busheviks cooked up to justify this potential enabling of terrorism are beyond belief. The Bush Department of what has clearly become Homeland InSecurity claimed that New York City did not have sufficient national landmarks and targets to justify full funding: “From Times Square and the Empire State Building to the Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty, New York is a city of spectacular landmarks. Ask any of the 41 million tourists who visited last year.
But according to the Homeland Security Department, New York has no national monuments or icons -- a determination that led to a 40 percent cut in anti-terrorism funding.”
As for Washington, D.C. – and we can barely contain ourselves as we write this – the Bushevik Department of Homeland InSecurity stated that our nation’s capital is, we repeat, "at low risk of attack" As the Washington Post reports, "The Department of Homeland Security has ranked the District in a low-risk category of terrorist attack or catastrophe, putting it in the bottom 25 percent of U.S. states and territories, as part of a decision that will cost the city millions in anti-terror funds, according to city and federal officials."
Okay, pick your jaw up from the floor, now.
Part of the Busheviks’ strategy, which we have repeated since 2000, is to be such brazen liars, bullies, thugs, and partisans that they simply do things that defy common sense and, therefore, no one can fully absorb the evil of their actions.
You take the two cities that are the governmental and economic centers of our nation, respectively. These are the same two cities attacked on 9/11. Then you declare that they are not likely terrorist targets.
This is beyond moronic incompetence.
This is raw, oozing evil.
How anyone in Congress with a brain cell in their heads and an interest in self-survival and the survival of this nation can continue to prop up this “enemy within” executive branch is beyond comprehension.
The continuation of the Bush Administration puts our entire nation at risk.
They make the old Soviet Union dictators look honest, truthful and caring about their citizens.
The White House should be renamed the Heart of Darkness.
