John Conyers, Jr: Democrats salivate to investigate Bush!

Under the frothing-at-the-mouth direction of Congressman John Conyers, Jr, Democrats salivate to investigate Bush! So, for distraction number one, investigations of President Bush may be trotted out at the "dog and pony" show to galvanize our attention while other "stuff" may be going on under the radar. Like Paul Begala said of the Clinton Administration. (paraphrasing) "Hey it was great! Want something done? Write an Executive Order. Boom! And it's done!" From the Drudge Report, Democrats plan to investigate Bush once out of office looks like a nasty bit of business with John Conyers, Jr. playing the lead in "Democrats gone wild." From the New York Times, Bush, Out of Office, Could Oppose Inquiries, we gain some insight into the harassing investigations the Democrats want to bring against President George W. Bush. At last, they will be able to "throw the kitchen sink" at the President they have loved to hate and through their very hatred done such harm to our nation both internally and internationally that when we speak of American prestige abroad, we have much for which to thank the Democrat rancor and their avenging angels of the MSM including the paper from which I have linked an article today. So, some good news! Maybe the Democrats and the ACLU as well as all of the other "hate mongers" will be distracted for a time and we, the people, may be able to stay under their radar for a short time. But I fear that may be wishful thinking and naive on my part. Obama has "large plans" and the American people as well may find themselves distracted by the Democrat-MSM media show trials against President Bush while the real mischief is being made in the most seemingly innocuous ways. Personally, one woman's opinion, we have much to fear from Obama's intended proposal to create a Civilian National Security Force, as strong or stronger than our military. Our military is constrained from attacking American citizens on American soil; a Civilian National Security Force, much like the Guatemalan National Police from the 1966-1996 era and perhaps the Mexican Military Police/Federales of today or even Russia's KGB, or the Brown Shirts from another era, would have no such constraint. As a matter of fact, such a force would be created to have no such constraint as The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878. I am reading a book at the moment, Grave Secrets by Kathy Reichs. Her book deals partly with the deaths of thousands of civilians in Guatemala from 1966 to 1996. (Yes, I've read about our "involvement". This post is not about that.) When addressing the idea of a Civilian National Security Force, the American Thinker posted, Obama's Civilian National Security Force and interestingly wrote off Joseph Farah's column in World Net Daily, Obama's 'civilian national security force' as perhaps extreme or naive, saying: "The entire plan is breathtaking in its scope. But it does not, as at least one internet writer (Joseph Farah - name inserted here, link provided in American Thinker post) has suggested, portend a "giant police force...." The American Thinker goes on to express (paraphrased here) that Obama's idea is simply naive, pointing out that his idea, a true Civilian National Security Force with full strength like our military, "...would be easier to rebut if it did. As it is, it's silly stuff born of naively fanciful dreams." "It's silly stuff born of naively fanciful dreams".... Hmmm.... Have we so quickly forgotten Obama's training in the ways of Saul Alinsky and here? His Marxist training at his mother's knee? (Stanley Ann Dunham Obama Soetoro has been described as "a radical leftist and cultural Marxist.") Have we forgotten the Black Panthers marshalling their forces at some polling places on Nov. 4th? I have to bow to the superior and consistently excellent writing at The American Thinker but Obama scares the Be-Jeezus out of me. And as "naive" as the idea of his "Civilian National Security Force" may seem, the embers are rife with possibilities, even more possible as a response to another terrorist attack - made to order - on our soil. We have proved our willingness to discard freedom and liberty by our easy acceptance of the "Patriot Act" and the TSA. What's the saying, "Well, I haven't done anything wrong. Let the government see any and all of my personal records. And DNA and fingerprints on a National ID Card? No worries..." One woman's opinion and the opinion of one woman who has a gained a moderate perspective through study of American as well as European history - it is those "naively fanciful dreams", that "dream the impossible dream" stuff, about which we should be very vigilant. And now, more than ever, we must work hard to recognize the "distractions" for what they are: distractions while the really important "stuff" is happening; the stuff we will find it impossible to reverse once it takes hold. Freedom isn't free! It requires courage, hard work, and vigilance and, when required, non-violent action to protect and preserve. Cross-posted at Eternity Road.
