Apparent News Blackout: Conyers spills the beans on Obama & SS & jobs bill; call for WH protests

NOTE: I posted the following diary at firedoglake, and also dailykos. At dailykos, it has been the top-recced diary, today, currently with 505 recommendations and 787 comments. If you look at the ETA's at the bottom, there appears to be a clear case of news blackout. Conyers calling for large demonstrations at the White House should be news - if not on the front page, than on the second page. Instead, it appears to be on NO page. No mention at ABC/NBC/NY TIMES/politico.com/talkingpointsmemo.com.

Well, thank goodness for dailykos.com and firedoglake.com.

Hallelujah! Some outspokeness from a Democratic Congress critter, at a higher level than "blame everything on the GOP".

By Ray McGovern

United States Rep. John Conyers, the Detroit Democrat who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, has a rendezvous with destiny. He is uniquely placed to thrust a rod through the wheels of a White House juggernaut to war with Iran by commencing impeachment proceedings against President George W. Bush.

A move to impeach would bolster the resistance to Bush among our senior military leaders who know that attacking Iran at this time would be the strategic equivalent of the marches into Russia by Napoleon and Hitler.

Bomb Iran? What's to Stop Us?

By Ray McGovern - June 19, 2008

It’s crazy, but it’s coming soon – from the same folks who brought us Iraq.

Unlike the attack on Iraq five years ago, to deal with Iran there need be no massing of troops. And, with the propaganda buildup already well under way, there need be little, if any, forewarning before shock and awe and pox – in the form of air and missile attacks – begin.

This time it will be largely the Air Force’s show, punctuated by missile and air strikes by the Navy. Israeli-American agreement has now been reached at the highest level; the armed forces planners, plotters and pilots are working out the details.

Emerging from a 90-minute White House meeting with President George W. Bush on June 4, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said the two leaders were of one mind:
