For Bush faction, “Scalito” completes criminal circle 

In nominating Samuel A. Alito.of the Third Circuit Court to the Supreme Court, the George W. Bush administration has outdone itself in its fervent attempt at “replicating Rehnquist.” It has, in fact, replicated Scalia. Alito is called “Scalito” for his similarity to the malignant Antonin Scalia in ideology and temperament, and deep ties to the Bush administration. This alone spells doom for democracy and the rule of law in the United States.

As was the case with Iran-Contra insider John Roberts, and George W. Bush confidante and 9/11 insider Harriet Miers, Alito brings his own skeleton closet—the most important details of which undoubtedly will not be mentioned or addressed by congressional Democrats (who, terminally, dwell on wedgy secondary issues such as abortion, gender/civil rights, and religion, while ignoring larger issues, such as treason).

From 1985 to 1987, Alito was the deputy assistant to Attorney General Ed Meese. This places Alito deep within the Reagan-Bush machine, a participant in the crimes involving the Meese Department of Justice, including all aspects of Iran-Contra and the theft of PROMIS software (also see). For obvious reasons, “Scalito” was placed on the Third Circuit Court by George H.W. Bush, where he has faithfully wreaked havoc for years.

It goes without saying that any Supreme Court pick from a Bush administration will destroy what is left of abortion rights. In 1991, in Planned Parenthood v. Casey, Alito voted to uphold a Pennsylvania law requiring women seeking abortions to first obtain permission from their husbands. So much for Roe v. Wade.

The Bush machine's list of extreme right-wing/Federalist Society cover agent judges is long and well known. Having been denied the trick of placing family friend Harriet Miers on to the highest court, Bush has simply gone back to the original list, giving the right-wing base exactly what it needs to distract focus from the Plame-Libby-Rove-Cheney fiasco and continuing failure in Iraq.

No time to gloat or celebrate Miers' withdrawal, or other Bush administration pratfalls 

The withdrawal of Harriet Miers is another rearranging of the same political deck chairs on the Titanic of post-9/11/Peak Oil America. The difference between one Bush insider type (Miers, John Roberts to a large degree), and another (the likes of Ted Olson, or some other Federalist Society criminal, Alberto Gonzales, etc.) is nil.

The goal of this Empire is the destruction of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, intensification of the USA PATRIOT Act and subsequent "homeland security" violations, more legal justifications for the expansion of the “war on terrorism,” and a final cover for the criminal pillage of what remains of this democracy, which is already unsalvageable toast.

The stacked deck won't be unstacked. Every pick for the Supreme Court must accelerate this demise, just as every cabinet appointment (such as new Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke) must, by design, be more ruthlessly deadly than their predecessors.

The Supreme Court, the same criminal body responsible for illegally installing George W. Bush, illegally giving the Bush cabal the right to keep the National Energy Policy Development Group (the foundation of the "war on terrorism") secret from the American people, and other unprecedented nightmares, is exactly what it is. Didn't like Miers? Watch what comes for you next. Watch for someone who satisfies both right-wing extremists and corrupted Democrats.

While the Bush faction has hemorrhaged in recent weeks (CIA Plame-Rove-Cheney, DeLay, etc.), it knows exactly how to wag the dog. It knows how to blow things up and kill. More importantly, the larger Empire has lost no steam. The unfolding new horrors in Syria/Lebanon, Venezuela, Haiti and Iraq (another stolen election)—all in the past week alone—provide ample proof of this. A wounded monster thrashes that much harder.

US tap dances from Uzbekistan to Kyrgystan 

The superpower match on the Grand Chessboard continues. After getting kicked out of Uzbekistan, the US keeps its Kyrgystan base, ensuring a continuation of conflict:

Then we have this from Pakistan's Daily Times: US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says US does not need new US bases in Central Asia

Quoting from this article, Condi Rice, in her brittle and brain-addled manner, tells some poor lies while giving away the game:

"Speaking to reporters aboard her plane prior to arriving in Kyrgyzstan, Rice acknowledged that the US was pursuing military interests in Central Asia, but said they took second place to its political objectives in a larger US strategy to counter extremism worldwide."

"Countering extremism worldwide" is their "military interest". Then she buries herself with more dirt:

“'In no way are our relationships in Central Asia aimed at anyone,' she said. 'In other words, we want these countries to have good relations with their neighbours, especially good relations with Russia."

The "war on terrorism" has been "aimed at" every country on the continent. Meanwhile:

" . . . the Russian foreign ministry has said Moscow is prioritising 'development of military-political interaction' in its relations with Tajikistan, amid speculation Washington is looking for ways to boost its military presence in that country. The daily Kommersant said Russian President Vladimir Putin had persuaded his Tajik counterpart, Emomali Rakhmonov, to reject any US request for basing rights in the country."

US Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers is a 9/11 insider 

While mainstream noise predictably swirls around the most unimportant aspects of the Harriet Miers US Supreme Court nomination, Editor & Publisher and others reveal that Miers briefed George W. Bush on the infamous "Bin Laden determined to strike United States" memo, and other 9/11-related matters, prior to September 11, 2001.

Read the Editor & Publisher article: Miers Briefed Bush on Bin Laden PDB, But Papers Handle Photo From That Day Quite Differently.

It is clear that the appointments of both John Roberts and Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court are very specific. They are not simply Bush confidants. They are not "mysterious" political players, nor, in Miers' case, "poorly qualified." They are enduring facilitators and cover agents for the most onerous Bush/Republican crimes of the modern era—very qualified and perfect choices for this Empire.

Roberts' involvement with Iran-Contra, and recent war crimes and torture, are well documented. Miers' role in 9/11, then, is no surprise whatsoever.
