No Change For The Changeling

By Ernest Stewart

"Change: transitive verb 1 a: to make different in some particular : alter b: to make radically different : transform c: to give a different position, course, or direction to2 a: to replace with another b: to make a shift from one to another : switch c: to exchange for an equivalent sum of money (as in smaller denominations or in a foreign currency) d: to undergo a modification of e: to put fresh clothes or covering on ." ~~~ Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary

"We spent hundreds of millions of dollars building an appropriate facility with all security precautions at Guantanamo to try these cases, I do not believe they should be tried in the United States. We should at the right time close Guantanamo, but I don't think that it should be closed in terms of transferring people here." ~~~ Sinator Jim Webb D/Virginia

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
Big Yellow Taxi ~~~ Joni Mitchell

The Changeling has been at it again! Not only is he not bringing needed change but he seems to be going out of his way to keep and cherish the very worst parts of the Bush Junta's various war crimes, acts of sedition, and treason!

His latest 180 degree turn involved those soon-to-be-released torture photos that they're trying desperately to keep secret even though there are court orders to make them public. Barry is doing everything in his power to cover up these war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by his puppet masters, "The Crime Family Bush." He seems to think that photos of happy GI Joes and GI Janes anally raping prisoners with broom handles and all those hot lesbian torture photos might upset the Sunday-go-to-meeting crowd. Zeus help us if the religiously insane started demanding an end to war, murder, and coveting thy neighbors oil supplies as their "good book" says! Yes, I know, that's hardly going to happen but still you never really know, do you?

Instead of appointing a prosecutor to bring the former Junta up on "capitol" capital crime charges for mass murder, genocide, illegal wars, etc. Barry is trying his best to sweep it under the rug and out of sight of the Sheeple whose attention span is about 12 seconds. This 12-second span explains why some 62% of Americans still thinks Obama's doing a good job! He is also arm-twisting over in Britain so they don't spill even more of the beans about their involvement with the "Crime Family Bush" and the U.S. Con-gress in these crimes. It's truly a worldwide cover up and one going on at the behest of our government! Your tax dollars at work, America!

Of course, Barry has had to do some pretty tricky acrobatics to keep from bringing charges for the stuff we hung a bunch of Germans and Japanese for doing. And we even imprisoned U.S. soldiers for doing the same thing in the Philippines. And then there is his support of illegal wiretapping of US citizens. You'll recall his flip/flop on the FISA bill? In barely 100 days, he's broken dozens of major campaign promises. Ergo I wouldn't be surprised if someday soon we see Obama look into the TV cameras and then zip down a zipper and out of what has plainly been an "Obama Suit" steps Old "Deadeye Dick" Cheney who looks into the TV camera and tells America, "Go fuck yourselves!"

In Other News

Oops, is that trouble in paradise I see? It seems that not only the Party of No is against closing Gitmo but so are the leaders of the Demoncrats as well. The Dems have cut off funding to close our concentration camp in Cuba so Barry can't bring the tortured to our shores for more of the same. What? You don't think we torture people in American prisons? Think Again!

The real reason for not bringing them here and trying them fairly in a court of law rather than in a military kangaroo court is, if brought here, the truth would come out about our string of concentration camps throughout the world. Not to mention the fact that over 95% of those we've kidnapped, tortured, murdered, and maimed were innocent. It's not that our super maxes couldn't hold them. Even the few real "terrorists" that we have would be no different or difficult then any American mass murderer. 40 years down line and Charlie Manson and his "family" are still behind bars without a single problem.

For the same reasons that Obama isn't revoking and repealing the many acts of treason from the Bush Junta, the Senate and House won't allow the prisoners to come to America and be given their day in court. It has nothing to do with security and everything to do with keeping the truth from coming out. Have we had trouble holding the group that tried to blow up the WTC in 1993? We have not! Of course, famous fascists like U.S. District Judge John Bates, a 2001 Bush appointee, says we don't have to charge some prisoners at all and can hold them forever, even after death, regardless of what the Constitution says. You'll recall that as Smirky said, "It's just a fucking piece of paper" after all! You may also remember that Bates got appointed in February 2006, by Chief Justice John (the enforcer) Roberts to serve as a judge of the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Kangaroo Court. Like Bates, Roberts is another "Crime Family Bush" appointed toady.

If your Sin-ator or Con-gress person is against closing Gitmo and bringing them here you might want to write them and seriously question them as to their motives while pointing out the truth to them and see what their reaction to the truth is. As old "Mark Twain" once said:

"It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly American criminal class except Congress."

And Finally

As the best "French Kisser" in all of Chile Verde once said, "Life Senior, she is a bitch!" and so is raising money in this day and age! Fortunately, some of you have responded and have put us on the path to our goal but most of you have not! On what we need for a year's operation most other magazines couldn't run for a week!

I realize, of course, you being who you are, are no captains of industry or you wouldn't be here to begin with. You don't buy the bullshit that the corpo-rat owned mainstream media sends "oozing out of your TV sets," or radios or computers. If you lived inside a Walt Disney inspired happy bubble of "someday my Prince will come" you wouldn't be here as I'd certainly burst that bubble. You're hip and the reason you tuned into Issues & Alibis was you don't need lectures, but "just the facts, Ma'am!"

For over eight years, we have provided this essential service at no cost to any of our readers. For the last three years we have had to ask ya'll to chip in and help defray the five grand in costs we incur getting it out to you. We need to raise about a grand by June 12th and we can be publishing again by June 19th. We'll still need to raise about three grand more by the end of September to publish another year. We're working on a Café Press site to sell books, DVDs, panties, coffee mugs and such with the profits going to pay the magazines bills, in the meantime...

Do what you can do! Oh and, Up the Revolution!


We get by with a little help from our friends!
So please help us if you can...?


Until the next time, Peace!
