bybee is hiding from a small group

bybee the bug judge
Judge j. bybee came to Portland and we were there to meet him.

We, of noble intentions were there, we stood for an hour starting about 0800 and left after court started. Malcolm flew his VFP flag with the stars and stripes and we told our story of the "Bug" Judge to be repeated during the time he is in Portland, March 5-9. You all know of the water boarding, the way he got his name by saying it is ok and legal for the President to order torture but you must not call it torture. This once great country can hurt and kill without punishment because we are so powerful. All countries that have sought empire have been invincible for a short time, but justice is always close as the British found out. The Germans were among the strongest of nations until people said enough. America tried judges, lawyers, and politicians for war crimes after WW2 and someday bybee, yoo, cheney, bush and the rest will look over their shoulder and see a prosecutor with guts and they too will stand before the bar of justice and their fate will be sealed. We will be there tomorrow at 1130-1:00 PM, stop by for a bit to join byee for lunch. We did not see him today, he is hiding from us---fits with his personality of cowardice. We will decided each day what time we will take up our watch the next, I will try to get word out to you each day. This person of shame who calls himself j. bybee, we call "The Monster of the Desert." Come join us or just stop to say hello. Many people stopped by to ask about this torture judge and when we told them who he is they could not believe that he is out and about, free, sitting on one of the best courts, but someday history will be written and he will read it in a dark place of shame.

5 of the individuals for justice stood and informed people who walked by the 9th Circuit Courthouse on Friday afternoon - as well as letting those who were going inside, know that the infamous "BUG \Torture Memo Judge" was inside the building.

A whole group of school kids {50+} got some education on how America runs in justice system, as I walked up they were all checking out the bybee protest posters and signs before getting on the Max.


unlike Obama? 09.Mar.2012 15:33

Wrench Monkey

When Obama officials (like Bush officials before them) refer to someone "who is a senior operational leader of Al Qaeda or associated forces," what they mean is this: someone the President has accused and then decreed in secret to be a Terrorist without ever proving it with evidence. The willingness of Democrats to embrace and defend this power is especially reprehensible because of how completely, glaringly and obviously at odds it is with everything they loudly claimed to believe during the Bush years.

At Esquire, Charles Pierce, writing about Holder's recent speech, described this best: "a monumental pile of crap that should embarrass every Democrat who ever said an unkind word about John Yoo."

... or Bybee.
