New radio ads are running in districts of several Democratic members of Congress, as well as Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul, targeting the lawmakers for their opposition to a White House-backed surveillance bill. The ads play on national security fears in an attempt to spur these lawmakers to give in to the administration's demands.
Critics of the administration-backed bill say it does not guarantee enough civil liberties protections and would eliminate oversight of President Bush's warrantless wiretapping program.
Defense of Democracies is running ads in a dozen districts across the country, targeting 11 Democrats and Paul who voted for an alternative FISA bill that passed the House last month.
"This refusal to oppose the bogus House bill ensures that vital intelligence is being lost and that America’s intelligence community does not have the tools needed to detect and prevent terrorist attacks," the group's president Clifford May, said in a news release posted to its Web site.

That's EXACTLY what this is--Bullying those that are standing in the way of them imposing absolute totalitorian, fascist rule over the populace...And the number of folks in congressional seat standing up to these monsters is diminishing, thanks to strong arm tactics like this...
I doubt Bush will ever be tried for anything domestically, as too many of his "appointees" in Justice have vested interests with him...The whole system is completely corrupted and polluted.
