The following are links to the International Laws as well as Domestic Laws which George Bush and certain members of his administration thought did not pertain to them. They were above these laws but would dare to hold others in violation of same. Bush Administration Lies about Iraq
“Our movement is helping to shine a bright light on the many crimes of Bush and his cronies. Not only are former Bush administration officials under investigation in Spain, investigations also have been launched in Italy, Australia, Canada, Lithuania, Poland and the United Kingdom.
On March 19, the 8th anniversary of the illegal invasion of Iraq, thousands of people will be hitting the streets in Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and elsewhere. The American people are standing up to say that no one is above the law – that Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and other high officials must be prosecuted for their crimes.” ~Indict Bush Now Campaign.
The American people have a special responsibility to expose Bush. Next month Iraq war veterans, who are working with IndictBushNow, are traveling to the White House to demand that Bush be indicted for war crimes.
Amnesty International is calling on the world to demand a criminal investigation into former President George W. Bush’s role in torture. You can sign this petition located on the Amnesty International Webside
On February 7, 2011, The Center for Constitutional Rights publicly released the “Preliminary Bush Torture Indictment.” Please see all documents regarding this indictment. The exhibit list contains more than 2,500 pages of supporting material. You can support this indictment to help ensure accountability and bring justice to those who believe they are above all laws.
The ACLU is calling for a full investigation into the Bush war crimes to include the higher officials of this administration whom were a party to these atrocities. Please do your part to ensure justice does prevail and that no one, including former President George W. Bush and his administration, is not above the law. Please sign the petition to the Attorney General. Thank you.
Well that’s what Representative Fred Upton (R – Michigan) House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman will tell you. Well so will several million screaming Rightie Nut Jobs. But let us separate those two for a moment (Lying Politicians and their fanatical supporters). Let’s go to the video shall we?
When pressed by the Interviewer for the specific answer Mr. Upton does finally concede to answer… He believes in Global Warming, but does not believe Global Warming is man made. So What other Positions has Mr. Upton taken?
EPA’s plan to regulate carbon emissions was “an unconstitutional power grab…”
“The best solution is for Congress to overturn the EPA’s proposed greenhouse gas regulations outright”
If his attack on the EPA does not work Upton appears prepared to halt the EPA’s regulatory process with a deluge of legal challenges.
“This presumes that carbon is a problem in need of regulation. We are not convinced….”
As reported by Reuters, “Upton has called for opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas drilling, scaling back government aid for renewable energy and voiced opposition to requiring electric utilities to use alternative energy for some of their power generation.”
So Mr. Upton wants to destroy the EPA, Wants to scale back Renewable Energy, opposes Alternative Energy, Oh and Drill Baby Drill!
I’ll Tell You WHY… Money!
Simply ask yourself, Who’s Agenda is Served by Politicians Killing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Promoting Oil & Gas Production in ANWR Alaska, Stopping the Research and Promotion of Alternative and Renewable Energy? Yes the answer is very obvious… Big Oil & Energy! Big DIRTY Oil wants EPA regulations removed as well as requirements to pursue alternative and renewable energy so that they can be free to not only pollute the Earth by oil production as well as increased allowable green house gasses.
Who has contributed to Mr. Upton’s political aspirations and filled his pockets to take these positions… The Very Same Answer… Big Oil & Energy! It should be no surprise that Fred Upton is assaulting the EPA so that the deregulation of the energy industry can commence. Well color me surprised! His top donor is “nuclear waste giant Energy Solutions,” just one of the energy conglomerates that have fueled his campaigns.
Global Warming Man Made?
So Fred Upton and the GOP/Tea Party want everyone to believe that Man Made Global Warming is nothing but a hoax. Why? Because the GOP always has and always will be aligned with Big Oil and Energy as well as defense contractors. Wars with the Middle East is their Mantra as they want to keep America’s addiction to oil instead of Clean Renewable Energy and Energy Independence.
Update 3/12/2011 | Results of an 18 Year NASA Study (Video)
What are the Real Facts?
Global Warming IS Man Made and years of studies by scientist and climatologist all over the world, who are NOT in the back pocket of Energy & Oil Companies, have the overwhelming proof.

Human activities have led to large increases in heat-trapping gases over the past century.
The Earth’s climate depends on the functioning of a natural “greenhouse effect.” This effect is the result of heat-trapping gases (also known as greenhouse gases) like water vapor, carbon dioxide, ozone, methane, and nitrous oxide, which absorb heat radiated from the Earth’s surface and lower atmosphere and then radiate much of the energy back toward the surface. Without this natural greenhouse effect, the average surface temperature of the Earth would be about 60°F colder. However, human activities have been releasing additional heat-trapping gases, intensifying the natural greenhouse effect, thereby changing the Earth’s climate.
Climate is influenced by a variety of factors, both human-induced and natural. The increase in the carbon dioxide concentration has been the principal factor causing warming over the past 50 years. Its concentration has been building up in the Earth’s atmosphere since the beginning of the industrial era in the mid-1700s, primarily due to the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil, and natural gas) and the clearing of forests. Human activities have also increased the emissions of other greenhouse gases, such as methane, nitrous oxide, and halocarbons. These emissions are thickening the blanket of heat-trapping gases in Earth’s atmosphere, causing surface temperatures to rise.
Mr. Upton… How about Now?
Well we ALL know you will not change your tune as YOU have been paid off and Sold this Country and this Planet down the river for Personal Gain… Therefore You are SLIME!
It’s really a sad day for this country when ANYONE can take the word of ANY Republican Politician. These Lying, Repulsive, Hypocritical, Backstabbing Assholes are lower than a cockroach’s ass in a wagon wheel rut. These gutless and spineless LIARS Twisted the President’s arm to hold the Tax Cuts for ALL American’s including the Rich, but did not want to agree to extending unemployment for the average Americans. In the end they had no choice and President Obama agreed to the tax cut extension.
Then what did these worthless Cock Suckers do? Why they attacked the bill claiming that the Democrats added a bunch Pork Barrel Earmarks to the tax cut bill trying to screw America. And, the King of Cock Suckers John McCain has been Tweeting about this for hours if not all day…
Well You beady-eyed, worthless old prick we all know you don’t have any Porker Earmarks because you already got all of your pathetic earmarks during the Stimulus. So don’t you feel emboldened to stand there and lie to the American people… You are nothing but a lying hypocrite Senator!
