Bush for oil corporate special interests

As gas prices and oil profits soar, Bush promotes giveaways to corporations

30 April 2008

US President George W. Bush used a White House press conference Tuesday to trot out his familiar litany of right-wing proposals, ostensibly intended to address rising gas prices and the growing economic crisis facing millions of Americans.

The proposals are all designed in one way or another to increase the power of the oil companies, even as these conglomerates have begun posting record profits for the first quarter of 2008. Bush proposed opening up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to oil drilling, increasing incentives to companies for refinery construction, and blocking new regulations and emissions targets for domestic energy producers.

Bush sidestepped questions on his administration’s position on a limited proposal, advanced by Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate John McCain, for a summer moratorium on the federal gas tax.

    Vincent Bugliosi Who called for the Impeachment and Trial of the 2000
    Supreme Court Five Felons Returns to Argue for the Trial of George W. Bush for
    Murder

    The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder (Hardcover)
    May 1st Release
    Vincent Bugliosi
    BuzzFlash.com’s Review (excerpt)
    May 1, 2008, Release

    The title of the book, with photos of American soldiers killed in Iraq, lining
    the inner jackets, goes where few legal experts will go: indicting George W.
    Bush for the unnecessary murder of our service men and women.

    “In ‘The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder,’ Bugliosi presents a tight,
    meticulously researched legal case that puts George W. Bush on trial in an
    American courtroom for the murder of nearly 4,000 American soldiers [it is now
    more than 4000 GIs killed in Iraq] fighting the war in Iraq. Bugliosi sets forth
    the legal architecture and incontrovertible evidence that President Bush took
    this nation to war in Iraq under false pretenses — a war that has not only
    caused the deaths of American soliders but also over 100,000 innocent Iraqi men,
    women and children [the Lancet survey projected out now would make that more
    than a million dead]: cost the United States over one trillion dollars thus far
    with no end in sight: and alienated many American allies in the Western world.

    “As a prosecutor who is dedicated to seeking justice, Bugliosi, in his
    inimitable style, delivers a non-partisan argument free from party lines and
    instead based upon hard facts and pure objectivity.”

    In a nutshell, “Bestselling author Vincent Bugliosi has written the most
    important and thought-provoking book of his prolific career. In a meticulously
    researched and clearly presented legal case that puts George W. Bush on trial
    for murder after he leaves his presidency, Bugliosi delivers a searing
    indictment of the President and his administration. With what he believes is
    overwhelming evidence that President Bush took the nation to war in Iraq under
    false pretenses — a war that has caused great loss of life, cost this nation
    close to $1 trillion, and alienated most of our allies in the Western world —
    Bugliosi argues that it is George W. Bush who must be held accountable for what
    Bugliosi considers to be monumental crimes. In this groundbreaking book,
    Bugliosi, in his inimitable style, presents a powerful case against the man in
    the oval office.”

    Bugliosi came to fame as the LA District Attorney who prosecuted Charles Manson
    and wrote “Helter Skelter.” But in BuzzFlash’s early days, not long after the
    theft of the election in 2000 by five members of the U.S. Supreme Court,
    Bugliosi wrote, “The Betrayal of America: How the Supreme Court Undermined the
    Constitution and Chose Our President.” In that book, he wrote the case for
    impeaching the felonious five (they appear as mugshots on the cover of the
    book).

    We interviewed Bugliosi twice in 2001. Being a famed prosecutor, he asked that
    we pull the first interview because he was concerned that he had become too
    vernacular and not stuck strictly to the legal case that he presents in “The
    Betrayal of America” against Nino Scalia and the four concurring justices who
    broke the law by violating the U.S. Constitution for political purposes. In our
    second interview at that time, he stressed how the mainstream media was refusing
    to interview him because of the explosive nature of his “criminal brief.” After
    all, Bugliosi has bonafides to make such a case. He’s not your conspiratorialist
    without credentials; he’s a professional, highly successful criminal prosecutor:
    “In his career at the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, he
    successfully prosecuted 105 out of 106 felony jury trials, including 21 murder
    convictions without a single loss.”

    Don’t expect “The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder” to receive a lot of
    publicity on the morning talk shows, the radio, or in print. The title alone is
    going to cause a lot of corporate publishers and producers to spike any coverage
    of it.

    About the Author:

    Vincent Bugliosi received his law degree in 1964. In his career at the Los
    Angeles County District Attorney’s office, he successfully prosecuted 105 out of
    106 felony jury trials, including 21 murder convictions without a single loss.
    His most famous trial, the Charles Manson case, became the basis of his
    true-crime classic, Helter Skelter, the biggest selling true-crime book in
    publishing history. Two of Bugliosi’s other true-crime books-And the Sea Will
    Tell and Outrage – also reached #1 on the New York Times hardcover bestseller
    list. No other American true-crime writer has ever had more than one book that
    achieved this ranking. His latest book, Reclaiming History: The Assassination of
    President John F. Kennedy, was also a New York Times bestseller, and is being
    made into a ten-part HBO miniseries, for which Tom Hanks will be a producer.
    Bugliosi lives with his wife of many years in Los Angeles.

    Most importantly to BuzzFlash, Bugliosi is the author of “The Betrayal of
    America: How the Supreme Court Undermined the Constitution and Chose Our
    President”
