the Cheney shooting right away

Intelligence Failed, Redux
by Robert Parry as seen on consortiumnews.com
In a scathing critique of the Bush administration's
manipulation of Iraq War intelligence, former senior U.S.
intelligence analyst Paul Pillar confirms the
assertions of the "Downing Street Memo," which alleged that the
facts were being "fixed" around the policy. Pillar
accuses Bush's neoconservative advisers of "cherry-picking"
the evidence to create a pretext for an invasion.
But the neoconservative assault on objective intelligence
actually dates back three decades.

Stalled Shooting News
Karl Rove told to shut up and butt out
Cheney overruled the advice of several members
of the White House staff and insisted on sticking to
a plan for releasing information about his hunting
accident that resulted in a 20-hour, overnight delay in
public confirmation of the startling incident,
according to several Republican sources.
"This is either a cover-up story or an incompetence
story," said a Bush-loving Republican.
"Karl was constrained because Cheney had arranged
for how this was to come out."
"People who believe the Constitution would
break if it didn't change with society are idiots."
-- Tony "Three Fingers" Scalia, the smartest judge
in history, if you ask the whore press Link
Subject: Lynn Swann
It's curious to see that Lynn Swann announced
that he is running for governor of Pennsylvania as a Republican.
Someone should ask Swann what he thinks about
Bush's non response to the dying New Orleans residents,
most of whom were African-Americans? Or what
about Bush's phony war in Iraq for oil profiteers, where a
disproportionate number of African-Americans
have lost their lives for nothing? Or what about Bush's cuts to
Medicare and Medicaid that will adversly affect
the African-American community more than any other ethnic group?
How about Bush's valiant attempt to destroy Social
Security that would have had a crippling effect on African-Americans
on fixed incomes? How about the Republican perpetual
effort to freeze the minimum wage? How do you think that
policy affects African-Americans? Hey Lynn, there
is a reason why 90% of African Americans vote for Democrats.
They will not be fooled by people like you, Condolleezza
Rice, Colin Powell and Armstrong Williams who have
sold their souls for 30 pieces of silver.

the Fear Card
Nine months before the November midterm elections,
the Republican campaign theme is already clear:
It's the terrorism, stupid. The Bush White House
has not been shy about its political use of an event,
the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which for a time
lifted Americans above their sharp partisan divide.
Now, Bush faces increasing pressure to prove
that he is on top of his game as the nation's protector
against both terrorists and natural disasters,
and that his party can continue to outshine the Democrats
on the central issue of homeland security."
"Moms, dads, do not let your kids go on hunting
trips with the vice president.
I don't care what kind of lucrative
contracts they're trying to land,
or energy regulations they're trying
to get lifted -- it's just not worth it."
-- Jon Stewart
working on Iran when Cheney outed her
According to current and former intelligence
officials, Plame Wilson was part of an operation
tracking distribution and acquisition of weapons
of mass destruction technology to and from Iran.
Speaking under strict confidentiality, intelligence
officials revealed heretofore unreported elements of Plame's work.
Their accounts suggest that Plame's outing was
more serious than has previously been reported and carries grave
implications for U.S. national security and its
ability to monitor Iran's burgeoning nuclear program.
this a picture of Bush with Abramoff?
"Did you know that Dick Cheney tortured the
for a half hour before he shot him?"

give another $7 billion to oil buddies
Bush may waive up to $7 billion in royalty
payments from companies pumping oil and natural gas
on federal territory in the next five years,
the New York Times quietly reported on Tuesday.
The royalty relief would amount to one of the
biggest giveaways of oil and gas in U.S. history,
even though the oil industry in drowning in profits
from gouging the American consumer.
The report cited estimates in the Interior Department's
recent budget plan that would allow
Bush's friends to pump about $65 billion in oil
and natural gas without paying royalties.

Rush is right.

Subject: Drunk Cheney avoids
Texas sheriff were barred from interviewing Cheney
about shooting incident.
Why is Cheney always above the law?
Because he is a dicktator and the Democrats are
afraid to call him on it.
Reports out of Corpus Christi indicate that Cheney
had been drinking before shooting that hunter.
That would explain why the Secret Service kept
him away from the sheriff until the next day.
It seems that the VP gets a lot of privaliges
that the rest of us commoners would not receive.

Subject: Democrats are racist
Democrats created the "Black Caucus" to establish
segregation within their party and to avoid
giving blacks positions of real power. The success
of this ploy illustrates the intellectual inferiority
of the 91% of blacks who didn't vote for
Bush because they cannot see they've been duped.
So, if black people were smarter, they'd realize, for instance, how
great a job Bush did with Katrina?
Because he wasn't into torture
The CIA's top counter-terrorism official was
fired last week because he opposed detaining Al-Qaeda suspects
in secret prisons abroad, sending them to other
countries for interrogation and using forms of torture such as
"water boarding", intelligence sources have claimed.
Robert Grenier, head of the CIA counter-terrorism centre,
was relieved of his post after a year in the
job. Vincent Cannistraro, a former head of counter-terrorism there,
said: 'It is not that Grenier wasn't aggressive
enough, it is that he wasn't 'with the program'. He expressed
misgivings about the secret prisons in Europe
and the rendition of terrorists.'"
Bart, you asked:
> Can we afford to give Zarqawi a billion dollars
Is this our only option?
How did you arrive at this?
The oil fields produce $135M worth of oil every day, or a billion a
Zarqawi and his merry men are running circles around our military,
so I assume they could easily dominate the people of Iraq once we leave.
For a time last fall, it appeared that Richard
Baker, a Louisiana congressman, had come up with a plan
that would help homeowners swept away by the
storm. The Feds would give them 60 percent of the
pre-Katrina value of their homes, enough for
most to rebuild or move on. But in late December, as the
Baker bill seemed headed for passage by Congress,
the White House balked
Nagin, as well as other African-American leaders
in New Orleans, have strongly harbored suspicions
that the White House does not really want blacks
to return to the city. Katrina drove tens of thousands
of blacks from their homes. A whiter New Orleans
could mean a more Republican state.
Subject: question for the Democrats
Tell me how it is possible that a political party
that has broken campaign finance laws, destroyed environmental
protections, gave tax breaks to the elite while
cutting programs from the poor, lost the world trade centers while
the president read My Pet Goat, lost an entire
US port city, lied us into a pre-emptive war, let bin Laden go,
let OBL's family go without even asking them
a single question, passed countless pieces of legislation in the
wee hours of the morning, extorted a member of
Congress ON THE FLOOR to pass the Medicare bill,
appointed ultra-right wing conservatives to the
Supreme Court, funded religious organizations using taxpayer
dollars, lost a spy plane to China, attacked
the one country in the Axis of Evil that didn't have nukes and
wasn't trying to build them, cut funding to planned
parenthood and countless other programs, passed and
then underfunded No Child Left Behind, lied about
the costs of the Medicare Bill...and on and on and on...
Tell me how it is possible that the Democratic
Party has been unable to defeat these people in elections,
using the rule of law, and is unable to sway
public opinion to vote for them, when the President has an
approval rating in the 30's. Explain that
to me, and maybe I'll even consider donating to your sorry asses.
Tom, the Democrats will lose until two things
They have to fix the Diebold problem and they have to fight back.
From The Fever Swamp
The president's approval rating is stuck at around
40% and I think it's pretty clear that it isn't the reporting
in the mainstream media or by the "reasonable"
Democrats at the New Republican that brought that about.
If left up to them the Republicans would be coasting
to another easy re-election.
I don't say this because I think that liberal
blogs are taking over the world and have changed the face of politics
as we know it. I say it because I know that without
us there would have been virtually no critical voices during
the long period between 2001 and the presidential
primary campaign during 2003. We were it. The media were
overt, enthusiastic Bush boosters for well over
two years and created an environment in which Democratic dissent
(never welcome) was non-existent to the average
American viewer. In fact, it took Bush's approval rating falling to
below 40% before they would admit that he was

Hello again. Just a note to Vic who says Zep
was successful because the record companies can ultimately gain control
of what the kids love and want to buy if they
just ram it down their throats enough. I was one of those kids
the 70s in the height of Zep's popularity, and
where I lived you almost NEVER heard a Zep song on the radio or saw
a Zep title on a jukebox. We got Heart, Foreigner,
Journey, REO, Fleetwood Mac and the like for the most part,
and if you did hear a Zep it was "Stairway to
Heaven" or "Rock and Roll" and that's about it. We bought the records,
without being told to by anybody, because we
dug how Page went beyond those "few stolen blues riffs" and made
something really new out of it, and how Bonham
was undeniably one of the most powerful and intricate drummers in
rock history, and how JPJ held it all together
at the bottom and wove amazing instrumental textures around the songs
-- and as for "skinny rock god" singers, you
can ask my wife about the 70s Robert Plant, which enthusiasm can make
me a touch jealous sometimes...
Was this Mr. Vic even around in the 70s? Did
he notice what was going on around him? Those of us who were
aspiring guitarists, for example, ALL wanted
to play like Jimmy Page, right there with Hendrix and Clapton and Beck
and, well, you can make your own list. And so
did a lot of those bands "carrying the real water", I would guess.
Who are these mystical groups that Mr. Vic is
talking about, anyway?

- Close to Rove?
Three former associates of Jack Abramoff say
the now-convicted lobbyist frequently told them he had
strong ties to Karl Rove. The White House said
Monday night that Rove remembers meeting Abramoff at
a 1990s political meeting and considered the
lobbyist a "casual acquaintance" since Bush stole power.
Three former business associates of Abramoff,
who worked with the lobbyist in various roles between
2001 and 2004, told the whore AP that Abramoff
routinely mentioned Rove when talking about his influence
inside the White House. One said he was present
when Abramoff took a call from Rove's office to confirm a
White House meeting had been approved between
Malaysia's prime minister and Bush in May 2002.
Abramoff was being paid by Malaysia for helping
it in DC, according to evidence the Senate has made public.

Missing in Iraq
Senate hopeful Matt Brown demands accountability
Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Matt Brown
today called for accountability and a full investigation
into alleged war profiteering in Iraq by companies
such as Halliburton and Custer Battles - a company that
was profiled on CBS's 60 Minutes on Sunday, February
In an interview with 60 Minutes, Stuart Bowen,
the special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction, said oversight
of the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA)
"was relatively non-existent" and that the $8.8 billion dollars the coalition
seems to have lost track of is "not accounted
for." No one knows exactly where the money went.
I know exactly where that money went.
Why do you think they fabricated a war?
"It's outrageous that $8.8 billion dollars has
gone missing," said Brown. "From Halliburton's multi-billion dollar
no-bid contracts and overcharging for meals for
our troops to Custer Battles' alleged fraud of the government
- someone must be held accountable. War profiteering
is despicable and this demands a full investigation."
"Always bothering our Fearless Leader? You must stop!"
Subject: The 9-11 debate
A few quick rebuttals to the conspiracy arguments:
First, the argument that kerosine only burns at
1700 degrees and cannot melt steel because steel melts at
2800 degrees is false. Kerosine's adiabatic
flame temperature is 1727C and the melting point of steel is 1570C.
Steel also reaches a plastic state where creep
can take place at only 1000C; this is how black smiths pounded
swords in the old days. By getting steel
to around 1000C where they could make it "bend" to their will much
easier than when it was at room temperature.
Another argument is that the Twin Towers had charges
set and were professionally demolished.
If this is true then why did the towers collapse
from the top down? No intentionally demolished
building in history has ever collapsed from the

Barred From Interviewing Cheney
Cheney too drunk to talk to sheriff until 14 hours later?

CBS's Peter Maer reports Texas authorities are
complaining that the Secret Service barred them
from speaking to Cheney after the incident.
Of course, the question is not whether the Secret
Service informed law enforcement, but whether
law enforcement was permitted to speak with Cheney.

was an accident, it could constitute criminal
