Vice President Cheney's former chief of staff testified that his bosses instructed him to leak information to reporters

 



Lying, 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

Brownie 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.

Lisa,

I sent the email below to 5 major TV networks (Not
faux news).

Thanks for all you do.

A~

"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.

 

Thanks A~.  I wish more Democrat Politicians would speak up before we get nuked or Bush nukes someone.

Gee, Credit Cards are Rejected Instantly, Why Not Terrorists?

 

An ambitious program to check every domestic airline passenger's name against government terrorist watch lists may not be immune from hackers, a congressional investigator said Thursday.

And because of security concerns, the government is going back to the drawing board with the program called Secure Flight after spending nearly four years and $150 million on it, the Senate Commerce Committee was told.

 



 

"President Bush met at the White House with Jordan's King Abdullah. Yeah, there was one awkward moment when President Bush asked King Abdullah, 'How is Queen Latifah?'" --Conan O'Brien

 



Republican Shenanigans


 

“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.” -- David Letterman

Drug Me, Please.

 

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and House Speaker Dennis Hastert engineered a backroom legislative maneuver to protect pharmaceutical companies from lawsuits, say witnesses to the pre-Christmas power play.

The language was tucked into a Defense Department appropriations bill at the last minute without the approval of members of a House-Senate conference committee,
say several witnesses, including a top Republican staff member.

Lisa,
We can make life easier for our overworked NSA employees by adding the above disclaimer to all e-mails and repeating these words every time we pick up the phone (with the obvious word change from e-mail to phone call). If this makes you concerned about your civil liberties, you must be a suspicious type who needs to be monitored.
Remember it is our duty as good sheep...er, patriotic citizens.... to be as pliant as possible so that when the aristocrats roll in, we won't be so hard to squish!

We've become the United States of Paranoia. Bush accomplished his mission.

Dicking Around

 

Vice President Dick Cheney has stirred up an old fight in Washington. He sent a rookie, however, to make his case publicly. It did not work.

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee to offer what may have been the weakest legal argument for presidential power to conduct warrantless electronic surveillance since Nixon's Justice Department invoked the views of King George III.
