Auditors with the Federal Government have ruled that Bush's fake news stories through Armstrong Willams and other hosts constitutes dissemination of covert propaganda on American soil, and that Bush broke statutory Federal law by using this scheme.

Thus ends another Bushnevik tactic that was previously employed regularly by the old Soviet Empire. This is not the Soviet Union. This is the United States of America.

Article is here.

Its amazing. We have a President that does not obey the law. A Congress that looks the other way when he does. And a public that just makes excuses for this behavior. And all their children looking at all these fine examples of bad America.

That's pretty clever, Billo. But this: Its amazing. We have a President that does not obey the law. A Congress that looks the other way when he does. And a public that just makes excuses for this behavior.

That is an excellent summary of what our government is all about since Bush took office.

He can dance but when the music stops there is gona be hell to pay
they have everyone in thier pockets and they all must go down with him
watch the birdies leave the roost when the music stops
and when that happens then he will fall no he will be pushed by his own team
never corner a rat his last effort to escape you may bring a nuclear winter upon you

Here's the main thing about that article.....

"The ruling comes with no penalty, but under federal law the department is supposed to report the violations to the White House and Congress."

The White House and Congress? Gee...this will go far. Does anyone in this forum actually believe a republican controlled congress will do anything?

Yeah, that is the exact thing I was thinking after reading the article...

Whatever, fake news is ingrained into our culture thanks to photo ops...this won't change anything unless tere was a penalty.

You didn't get the memo? If the NY Times reported it, it didn't really happen, because they're a liberal propoganda machine hell-bent on making Bush look bad.

I don't think anything will be done if it is a Democratic controlled Congress. I don't think there is much of a difference between both parties. Neither one represent Americans. Just corporate Americans. Strike that. They don't represent America at all.

Actually, the 2 major parties do have a purpose to their existence - That is, to divide and conquor the American people, so that their corporate cronies can feast on the bones of a dying republic.

What do you read? the wall street journal? Maybe you need to read more and one newspaper. If you get it from only one source, thats kinda bad.

And there is no WAY that that is a lie. sorry kid. Sure maybe the NY Times is a socialist propaganda paper but it happened. And no its not.

Clinton got what he deserved, and will be remembered as perhaps the second biggest scumbag president in History. However, the scumbag in first place hasnt left office yet.

Nope, gotta disagree there. T'was the Rapist that declined Sudan's offer to hand over bin Laden.

Apart from which, the worst president the nation ever had died in 1944.
