A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

It is now a conventional complaint on the Right that university faculties are dominated by liberals.

It's true.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

The U.S. Attorney Scandal has struck a new victim: the American taxpayer. A judge ruled Wednesday that an epic blunder by federal prosecutors in the largest tax prosecution ever means that the treasury can't recoup at least $100 million in restitution.

PART IV - ENERGY, WARMING AND FINANCIAL THREATS

ENERGY DEPENDENCE

Our foreign policy has long been enslaved by dependence on Mideast oil, and very little is being done to break that stranglehold. This dependency makes us vulnerable to oil-rich nations and limits our influence around the world. Other consuming giants, such as China and India, are seriously competing with us for oil, and the surge in demand will surely one day outstrip world supply.

Let me see if I have this right: Congress passes a funding bill for the military that includes time lines and actually gives Bush more than he asked for. It contains some time lines. Bush wants the money, but not the time lines, so he says he's going to veto it.

David Swanson: Veto This

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by David Swanson

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is right to point Unitary Executive George W. Bush toward a copy of the Constitution. The President (should Bush care to resume that legal role) is permitted to veto bills but not to write them. In particular, the President cannot rewrite legislation after it has been voted on and before he signs it. Nor can any member of Congress.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Little did Bush realize so long ago when he issued that infamous challenge, "Bring it on" -- they would! Here we are now in the 5th year of this pre-planned, ill-conceived, preemptive, illegal, unnecessary war and "they" are still bringing it on! "Insurgents have struck inside the Green Zone, which includes the U.S. Embassy, on six of the past seven days, once with deadly consequences. A U.S. soldier and a U.S. government contractor were killed Tuesday night by a rocket attack that also seriously wounded a civilian, military and embassy officials said. One soldier and at least three other civilians received minor injuries, U.S. Embassy spokesman Lou Fintor said."

Okay, now I'm worried.

There have been several rounds of reports that the war-obsessed Bush administration was getting ready to attack Iran - first last September, then in December, and more recently in January and February.

It's time for impeachment to come out of the deep freeze.

For a year now, Democratic leaders such as Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL), Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), and DNC head Howard Dean have been working to tamp down the pressures to hold the president accountable for his crimes and abuses of power by way of impeachment.
