Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: first, to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; last to not only fighting for personal privacy & the freedom of information, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. She is a poet, always. All these efforts find representation here: "ah, Mephistophelis" is so named after the last line of Christopher Marlowe's Dr. Faustus, whose heretical success flouted the censor for a time.

Obama DOJ Grants Immunity To Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Powell, Rice, and Wolfowitz for Iraq War. (I think I am going to be sick)

And while I was entering in the word 'desolation' after 'abomination that causes,' what should I learn but:

Obama DOJ Asks Court to Grant Immunity to George W. Bush For Iraq War
By Inder Comar
In court papers filed today (PDF), the United States Department of Justice requested that George W. Bush, Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice and Paul Wolfowitz be granted procedural immunity in a case alleging that they planned and waged the Iraq War in violation of international law.
Plaintiff Sundus Shaker Saleh, an Iraqi single mother and refugee now living in Jordan, filed a complaint in March 2013 in San Francisco federal court alleging that the planning and waging of the war constituted a “crime of aggression” against Iraq, a legal theory that was used by the Nuremberg Tribunal to convict Nazi war criminals after World War II.
“The DOJ claims that in planning and waging the Iraq War, ex-President Bush and key members of his Administration were acting within the legitimate scope of their employment and are thus immune from suit,” chief counsel Inder Comar of Comar Law said.
The “Westfall Act certification,” submitted pursuant to the Westfall Act of 1988, permits the Attorney General, at his or her discretion, to substitute the United States as the defendant and essentially grant absolute immunity to government employees for actions taken within the scope of their employment.

Not Snowden, not Manning, no.  Obama pardons...

I feel sick.

... And... I don't believe one can be pardoned for war crimes.


  1. Ah, the Cabal.
    Ha! They forgot Goebbels, er, i mean Rove (et al).

    There is one major reason that the war in Iraq was worse than Vietnam.
    The Vietnam war had already happened, and the lessons of the past were ignored. Soldiers (read National Guard) were doomed to repeat history, in a way.

    A War on Terrorism also became a Reign of Terror.

    enter any number there, presto!
    it accepts it.

    Thank you for reducing that cumbersome Javascript.
    It shows that you care.

  2. Speaking of War Crimes, how about this?

    Quote: "Video: Syrian Rebel Admits Using Chemical Weapons"

    Yup, somebody's credibility was indeed on the line. That is gone now.

    Please pass the barf-bag.
    I KNOW i am going to be sick!

  3. thank you, tech. for the headfs up on comments -- i will be checking that out....

    whats curious to me -- and i want to run this by you -- is that for the first time, i think, in history, everything is on the ground *before* the first boot.

    and we are paying attention.

    not one shred of an excuse do they have. not one.

    isn't that a trip? i think it means all bets are off. past performance is no indicator of future behavior. we -- they -- have no precedent ---

    visualize the world --- having not only survived, but thrived, How it feels, tastes, to have that facet of reality move from the wishlist to the fundamental or assumed, common historical denominators out of which we are wont to weave our world.

    how? thats' what we want to know, now, isn't it?

  4. Quote: "is that for the first time, i think, in history, everything is on the ground *before* the first boot. "

    Reading that reminded me of Fukushima.

    I am reminded though, no matter what i think of polotik, that there are indeed real people dying.

    How does one respond when confronted with a modern-day Flood (of lies)?

    I simply think of Billy Joel's timeless song "Honesty"; such a lonely word.

  5. but even if it was not so rare, Tech, it would still be ...deployed... as if it were a lie:

  6. Crazy, when i click the link for this article from your main page, it appears half-way down the page.

    At any rate. I have some follow-up for you. I hope it helps. I hope it is true. It is so hard to tell from an admitted "spook".

    Did Faust despise instruction?

    Have you ever heard of Ambassador Lee Wanta also known as "The 27.5 Trillion Dollar Man"?

    Whether you have or not, you are likely going to want to listen to the following two and a half hour interview.
    Note that he is an admitted stutterer, so that particular "audio problem" is his own.

    Bear in mind that i have not personally vetted this information, nor allegations.
    Yet the information seems to fit what it is we have witnessed over the last generation or so.
    Quote: "Tune in to hear the story of this extraordinary man and the hardship he has been put through in service of his country."

    includes allegations that Hillary Clinton cleaned out "his" account in Grenada, and that she was video taped doing so.

    Quote @ 46:39 "We were pretty good at what we do. We were young and stupid. We w-were not afraid.
    Of course we should have been afraid, if you think about it, but not in those days.
    It was fun. It was fun to protect our country.
    No more Khrushchev going to bury us with our shovels.
    If we could find a shovel, we would pick it up and take it away."
    Sting (Gordon Sumner) "Mr. Krushchev said we will bury you. I don't subscribe to this point of view. It'd be such an ignorant thing to do, if the Russians love their children too."

    1:22:30 into the interview may answer your call in your original reply to me to "imagine".
    I have dreamed a wonderful dream, and it has been stolen from us all, including allegedly $40 billion from the Russian Federation, $5 billion from Canada, etcetera, and presumably (though not directly alleged in this interview) German gold. - link menu "lee wanta" for book in pdf format (two part book - quoted from interview)

    and "Israel's Five Trillion Dollar Secret" as well as "Marilyn MacGruder Barnewall Biography")

    A Movie is apparently in the works (for October or November release - quoted from interview) - coincidentally about the same time as the continent-wide (?) power-grid down drill.

    The Ambassador is possibly to be invited as a guest again soon, as referenced in the interview.

    Not certain if this is connected yet. -->

  7. Here in Canada, this may help explain allegations put forth by former CSIS Director Richard Fadden over three years ago concerning corruption in the House of Parliament.
    Quote: "“In an exclusive interview with the CBC that aired on June 22, Fadden said foreign governments hold influence over at least two cabinet ministers in two provinces, and are also involved with municipal politicians in B.C. and federal public servants. He did not provide any names, but implied that China was one of those foreign governments.""
    His reward? Half of Parliament wanted his head on a platter. You guess which half!

    Former Premier of British Columbia and champion of "Fight HST" citizens initiative The Right Honorable Bill Vander Zalm -
    (Coincidentally, he was quoted during his tenure concerning people on Welfare, "Give them a shovel" - how ironic)

    End of Faustian bargain? Sadly, no. Fukushima. Oilympics. War; rumours of war. Schwarzenegger: "No deal!" Wink wink, nudge nudge, scream "NO MORE!"

    Follow the white rabbit (and the money).

  8. Procedural immunity was a fact of life since the Clinton administration - if not before. That the Department of InJustice recognized that is mere melodrama. Opit's LinkFest!: Law
