How scheming lobbyist operated in Seattle firm
Seattle Times, United
States - Feb 7, 2006
Seattle-based Preston Gates & Ellis, Jack Abramoff had been involved
with South Africa's apartheid regime, Col. Oliver North's campaign to
arm Nicaraguan contras, Zaire's dictator Mobutu Sese Seko and Angolan
rebel leader Jonas Savimbi, who reportedly had his opponents burned at
spying while our troops are dying. How Nixonian.
"As for what
exactly a bad day for Bush might look like, oh, how about being a captive
audience member at the funeral of a civil rights pioneer in front of
thousands of people, none of whom voted for you except the woman sitting
right next to you and possibly your dad. But I'm not even sure he's buying
it anymore." --Jon Stewart, on Coretta Scott King's funeral
Points for Brownie?
The Bush Administration's
bungled response to Hurricane Katrina came under fresh scrutiny today amid
revelations during a Senate hearing that senior White House officials had
learned of the disastrous flooding in New Orleans
a day earlier than they have previously indicated....Bush has recalled
publicly that earlier that morning, he felt a sense of relief, thinking
that the city had "dodged the bullet."
But Brown told the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs
committee this morning that he had called a senior White House aide, most
likely deputy chief of staff Joe Hagin, the previously evening, Monday,
Aug. 29, to inform him of the levee break.

"Where is your outrage?!!!"
Scholars for 9/11 Truth claim 911 is a conspiracy.
These are not crazy people making crazy claims. If you
spent 1 hour looking at the evidence you would have
some very pointed questions to ask of our government.
And yet, barely a peep. Where is your outrage?!
Wiretapping without any oversight. What are you going
to do when the GOPstepo comes to YOUR door and takes
you away because you said something over the phone
they didn't like?
The reasons to go to war were all lies. The bush
administration is the most corrupt and media
manipulative we've had in our history. Katrina was two
disasters in one. A natural one and a human one. The
budget is a joke with Oil corporations making record
profits and getting tax breaks. 40 billions stolen
from California by Enron & others (Via the help and
duplicity of bushco). The list goes on and on.
What is your end game? What are you going to do when
the people wake up to YOUR duplicity? OR what are you
going to do when the Jackbooters shut you down because
they're afraid you might tell us the truth?
The state of affairs can't go on forever. The
proverbial sh*t is going to hit the turbo blades...
Who's side are you going to be on?
It's time to come clean. It's time to expose Fox news
for what it is. It's time to expose the administration
for what it is. It's time to say patriotic and not
mean "unwavering faithful".
A Patriot is someone who is willing to lay their life
on the line for the good of the country. Time for you
to step up to the plate.
I wish more Democrat Politicians would speak up before we get nuked or
Bush nukes someone.

“There was a kind of big
deal down in Washington last night at the White House. There was a tribute
to the Dance Theater of Harlem down there in Washington at the White
House, and after the dinner, the President and his wife got up and danced
for the crowd. And I was thinking about this. I believe the last time Bush
danced for a black audience was when he tried to explain FEMA's response.”

Senate Majority Leader Bill

The language was tucked into a Defense Department appropriations bill at
the last minute without the approval of members of a House-Senate
