Dinosaurs and the Pressure Cooker


Our employees don’t understand that the Italy pressure cooker can’t hold out any longer. The heat of the fire is increasing. Each day there’s new fuel. The judge Clementina Forleo asks to be able to use the telephone intercepts of three Ds parliamentarians and three Forza Italia parliamentarians (three against three, the perfect equilibrium for Forza Ds!) involved in the summer of the little crafty ones. A Bnl to me, an Antonveneta for you, an Rcs for me, the local newspapers for you.
The intercepted, D’Alema, Fassino and Latorre (Ds), Grillo, Comincioli and Cicu (FI) need not fear. Among those who are standing on their side are:
- The minister of Caste and Justice, Mastella, well known jurist:
“At the constitutional level, I exclude that a judge has the power to manage to ask for the use of intercepts for purposes of investigations that have never been requested”,
- the presidents of the Lower and Upper Houses Bertinotti and Marini, full-time Trades Unionists to protect the rights of their parliamentary colleagues:
“The spreading of news about the relationship between the magistracy and Parliament is a problem”,
- The head of the Olive in the Senate, Anna Finocchiaro:
“If these considerations had been made by any other State official, it would have been considered an abuse of power, because the possibility of exercising the criminal action is the competency of the pm {pubblico ministero = public prosecutor}and not of the gip {giudice per le indagini preliminary = judge for preliminary investigations}”.
Forleo maintains that the politicians who are implicated are not “passive recipients of information”, but “knowing accomplices of a criminal plan”.
Most of our employees, however, make out that it’s their business and that the magistracy must not interfere.

Today’s front page. La Repubblica: “That’s enough about the Unipol stunt” with a whole page interview with the statesman D’Alema. Il Corriere: “Mastella and Forleo: “She has violated the Constitution”” and a half page interview with the “man called pardon”.
Thus it’s all a stage play and an attack on the Constitution.
The Wall Street Journal or The Guardian would have had headlines: “Put them on trial!”

The pressure cooker is boiling, boiling, boiling.

The outlaw president outlaws all war protest

Jul 23, 2007: I protest, as of the very first line of Bush’s July 17 “Executive Order” (meaning not necessarily read or approved by Congress). I protest this “Order,” which itself is in flagrant violation of the Bill of Rights and the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, which guarantees the right to freedom of speech, the press, and to protest, despite the fact that that right has been violated by various courts in various eras in contentious situations like the one we have today.

I protest also that the Bush “Order” sanctions its own unconstitutionality by invoking the Constitution for its enforcement in the first line: “By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America.” Remember the Constitution is the document Bush called “just a goddamned piece of paper,” as he went forth to dismiss the right of habeas corpus and fought for renewal of the illegal USAPATRIOT Act.

The outlaw protects his illegal war:

Yet, in this new illegal stroke of a pen Bush outlaws all protest in the United States against his scurrilous Iraq war. And with this law, he turns all of us (US) who do not nod in bobble-doll agreement with him into “the enemy." [...]

Exactly what and who ‘destabilized’ Iraq?:

Moreover, the ‘destabilization’ of Iraq was created by illegal means, by the assertion of Bush and his band of outlaws, Cheney, Rice, Powell, Rumsfeld, et al, and their knowingly untruthful assertions that Iraq and Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, nuclear, chemical and biological, and were prepared to use them; and that, in fact, President Hussein had procured ‘yellow cake uranium from Niger” to use in the production of WMD for imminent use on America.

These assertions were proven to be a pack of lies by no less than Ambassador Joseph Wilson, who had gone to Africa, found the “yellow cake” assertion to be fiction not fact, and asserted same in his New York Times op-ed, What I Didn’t Find in Africa. [...]
