Newt Is Posturing...

for a higher calling?

I forget, why did he leave Congress?

hmm. Well if Newt is such a foundation of honesty
and integrity, we've got serious trouble.

Hey, we do have serious trouble .. think Newt would love to be back in the limelight ...I'm convinced these politicians just love having the fawning of the staff, jibing with news/entertainment commentators, rather than doing a 'job well done', eh?

Let's just review:
the Republicans have basically handed over the House and the Senate to the other side of the aisle, yet, that side seemingly has
'little clue'/game to carry the day.

Major fumbling all around. . .

I'm the fan of Number 44 to be
PJF ..

Let's see how Scottie's mum does in Texas as an independent ...
hasn't worked for Nader in the past, yet
we're certainly in new times ..

Amazing... Newt is certainly the wrong person to be the spokesperson to preach to the GOP that they may lose control of congressional majorities. To go down memory lane to those folks who can't remember why Newt resigned: He was fined 300,000 for violating the House rules barring the use of tax exempt foundation for political purposes. A crook preaching to a bunch of crooks that have crooked party. On a light note: I was sent this cartoon by an editor. All sum up about Abramoff:

Another whistleblower comes forward. More problems with Bush. Do you think he needs a drink? go to article in Washington Times:

NSA whistleblower asks to testify
By Bill Gertz
January 5, 2006

A former National Security Agency official wants to tell Congress about electronic intelligence programs that he asserts were carried out illegally by the NSA and the Defense Intelligence Agency.
Russ Tice, a whistleblower who was dismissed from the NSA last year, stated in letters to the House and Senate intelligence committees that he is prepared to testify about highly classified Special Access Programs, or SAPs, that were improperly carried out by both the NSA and the DIA.
"I intend to report to Congress probable unlawful and unconstitutional acts conducted while I was an intelligence officer with the National Security Agency and with the Defense Intelligence Agency," Mr. Tice stated in the Dec. 16 letters, copies of which were obtained by The Washington Times.

Finally, some members of Congress of demanding answers from Bush in regarding spying on reporters:


Here is the open letter to Bush:

The text of the letter follows:
January 5, 2006
The President
The White House
Washington, DC 20500
Dear Mr. President:
We write to you regarding the National Security Agency's use of warrantless surveillance involving people in the United States. While we believe it is critical that communications with Al Qaeda representatives be scrutinized, it is also imperative that it be done in a manner that respects the law and the privacy rights of individuals in this country, and as has been done by prior Administrations.
As you know, since this program was first disclosed by The New York Times on December 16, 2005, it has caused a firestorm of controversy. Among other things, concerns have been raised that not only is the program constitutionally problematic; but also that it is inconsistent with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act ("FISA") and not authorized by any subsequently passed law (including the September 18, 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force); it included within its sweep calls solely within the United States; the intelligence information was widely disseminated without adequate controls; and that it involved tapping into telecommunication data and voice networks, thereby intercepting a large volume of telephone and Internet communications. Concerns about the program were not only raised by Members of the Intelligence Committees and Members of the FISA Court (one of whom resigned in protest), but by then-Deputy Attorney General Comey and, reportedly, by then-Attorney General Ashcroft.
Perhaps the most significant concern many of us have is that such a program could be utilized with the Executive Branch acting in the role of attorney, judge, and jury in deciding whether or not the surveillance was justified or appropriate. This is particularly perplexing given the ease with which your and other Administrations have been able to obtain FISA warrants in the past, and the fact that such warrants can even be obtained on a retroactive basis.
Given the controversy and myriad legal concerns raised by the surveillance program, we would ask that you forward to us proposed statutory language authorizing the program so that the Members can consider the same as part of our review of those provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act scheduled to sunset on February 3, 2006.
In addition, so that we may better understand the nature of the program, we would ask that you forward to us the following:
• Any and all legal opinions and memorandum concerning the lawfulness of the program
• Any and all orders authorizing and reauthorizing the program
• Any and all records and information indicating the number of U.S. persons for whom such surveillance was authorized
• Any and all records and information indicating the number of U.S. persons for whom communication to or from them were intercepted
• Any and all records and information indicating the number of intercepted communications occurring completely within the U.S.
• Any and all records identifying any members of the U.S. press, other U.S. media or Members of Congress for whom communications to or from them were intercepted
• Any and all records and information indicating how the information concerning U.S. persons was stored, shared among various agencies and departments, and whether, when and how such information is to be destroyed.
To the extent any of the above includes classified information, we would be willing to discuss a means by which certain information can be redacted.
Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.

I do agree that both parties need real power. Both have to empty the garbage. Remember, when the Declaration of Independence was established in 1776, the Founding Fathers were risking their lives to make sure that we have freedoms that we have today. But, it takes one person to take a stand in life before others will follow. Both parties have a lot of deal with. But, it is up to us as United States citizens to stand up and decided who we want to represent our state and country. But, the bottom line is that those few Congressmen don't take a stand, who will?

What I mean by that is they should stop being cowards & reach a compromise behind closed doors to do something brash immediately:

When push came to shove, Harry Reid shut down the Senate with Rule 21. As a result we have the Iraq war investigation forcing them to hand over documents.

At the end, John McCain stood up to have torture banned. He got compromise and legalized the bill. Then Carl Levin deliberately weakened the bill to allow torture of detainees already there, and Graham-Levin attempted to reform it.

Now Reid is also in the spotlight for his connections with Abramoff along with McCain, Burns, the senate leadership.

That he stood up and may go down with the republican senators, is not important. That he stood up, and that McCain stood up and set an example is important.

Whether they stay there or not, someone needs to start doing the same thing in Congress. Someone in the House of Reps need to take charge. Tom Davis & John Conyers could call a "closed" session, they could do anything they need to do to get this done. Then they could subpoena ALL of the documents regarding spying.

Instead of running around flinging mud, or sending letters, or going on the talk-shows-- These people in "CONGRESS" need to do what we paid them to do. Shut the session down and subpoena all the documents on domestic spying/and other activities.

Very interesting discussion Very Special Prosecutor Biloxi and Anonymous. How are we going to get our representatives to show some spine? The incessant amount of lies, corruption, greed, abuse of power etc. going on for how long now,...and we've had only a few voices speak out, Reid, Murtha, McCain (I'm still not sure about him. That alone is shocking except it makes sense because of the atmosphere of fear created by this administration. Either you are with us or against us, implying that if you disagreee then you yourself must be a terrorist. And if you print anything that shows the administration under the harsh light of scrutiny - well you are aiding the enemy.

What was also amazing was Cheney asserting yesterday that if Bush had only started the illegal spying sooner we could have averted 9/11. Weren't Condi and Rummy and Cheny and Bushie completely unconcerned about the infamous Memo, "Bin Laden Determined to Strike In the US"? Hadn't the FBI and the CIA been on many of the terrorists and nobody was listening? Cheney just keeps on lying outrageously and it seems that nobody calls him on it - nobody. It is truly astonishing.

Am I remembering correctly? Didn't Newt write a 'novel' in the early '90's?

At the time mothers across the U.S. were demanding the federal government pass laws regulating violence, sex, and language on TV as well as other forms of entertainment. This is when warnings and ratings started to appear on CDs. Newt was their champion. He was calling for less violence, profanity and oh yes – less SEX. There he was leading the fight and then the public learned of the steamy sex passages from his book. It was another one of those 'gotcha' moments. Of coarse Newt’s book is rather tame compared to Scooter Libby's tome.

Hate to bring this up now, but there was definitely a far starker motive than "getting" at Joe Wilson...

That wasn't enough to bring down an entire CIA operation.

Why in the world would they leak out a whole CIA outfit, unless they were interested in shutting the whole thing down?
Bolton hated the CIA and Brewster Jennings especially...

Isn't it remarkable how everything is never what it seems? Bolton & Fleitz are named in the indictments as anonymous....until further investigation of all the ties that bind.

Rest assured, the CIA was leaked and damaged incredibly because someone didn't want the CIA to find out about the Niger Conspiracy setup in Iraq.....and where they moved the chemical weapons.

Also there is alot more regarding Tyco, I wonder if anyone saw this yet

"''Additionally, Abramoff represented to Company A that he was negotiating on their behalf with GRI to try to save Company A money, when in fact he was simply setting a high price on services that he controlled and from which he would profit,'' the court documents say.

Tyco hired Abramoff and GrassRoots Interactive. In May and June 2003, Tyco paid GrassRoots Interactive, directly and through Greenberg Traurig's bank account, about $1.8 million, of which about $1.6 million went to Abramoff and entities he controlled, prosecutors say.

Unlike some of the Indian tribes Abramoff acknowledged defrauding, Tyco was not a newcomer to Washington politics.

Tyco has been a client of several lobbying firms over the years, including that of former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, R-Kan. The company also has been involved in campaign politics, giving several five-figure checks to national Republican and Democratic party committees when they were still allowed to accept corporate donations, a practice banned after the 2002 elections.

More recently, Tyco found itself in the middle of federal investigations into corporate corruption. Last year, Tyco's former chief executive, L. Dennis Kozlowski, and chief financial officer, Mark H. Swartz, were sentenced to prison for grand larceny, conspiracy, securities fraud and falsifying business records. They are accused of conspiring to defraud Tyco of millions of dollars to fund lavish lifestyles. Both are appealing their convictions."


"Below in this post are reports of Bush's pending appointment of the new, number two person in the Justice Dept., second only to Atty General Alberto Gonzales.....a 52 year old conservative named Flanigan...who....you guessed it....has a past, recent relationship with lobbyist Abramoff which he is reluctant to fully disclose to the senate. Flanigan, if confirmed by the senate, will also supervise special prosecutor Fitzgerald, and will have the authority to fire him.....since Gonzales has recused himself from involvement because of Fitzgerald's investigation of the Bush white house.

If you sort through enough of this to acquire an informed opinion, or if you already have one, and wish to discuss or challenge the documentation, or points in my comment, please post. Abramoff seems to be everywhere, and most likely will either cooperate with prosecutors, or face many more charges.
While it is true that he also gave many thousands to democratic party politicans, he gave millions of dollars to key republicans, including the Bush campaign. Bush apparently assisted Abramoff by writing a letter while he was still Texas governor, and by dismissing a federal prosecutor in the same Marianas Islands Abramoff lobbying effort, when Bush became president."

I just reread the Newt article about all the corruption in Congress. As a nurse, if I do anything that is questionable I could be censured by the state because we have a practice act that defines what we do. I think we should model the laws for congressional behavior along the same guidelines with the same review and disciplinary process, only no sitting members of congress or anyone with a conflict of interest may be involved in the review or disciplinary process.The first change should involve banning the acceptance of gifts, money or other favors. I can't accept a gold ring from a patient after saving her life. Why should these people take gifts to be biased toward the person who gave them the gift when voting on bills?

Don't know what anonymous is talking about....

Hat tip to Fitz and everyone working this thing....

Dennis Hastert is in real dirty deep

"WASHINGTON - The guilty plea by lobbyist Jack Abramoff could bring renewed scrutiny of a letter sent by House Speaker Dennis Hastert of Illinois to Interior Secretary Gale Norton urging her to block an Indian casino opposed by rival tribes represented by Abramoff just one week after the lobbyist hosted a fundraiser for Hastert's political action committee.

Many in official Washington, Republicans and Democrats, were scrambling Wednesday to try to distance themselves from Abramoff - Hastert among them - fearing that they could be tainted by even the appearance of an association with the now disgraced lobbyist.

Abramoff pleaded guilty this week to corruption charges and agreed to cooperate with federal prosecutors in a broadening investigation of bribery in Washington, which Abramoff admitted included the exchange of campaign contributions and other favors for official assistance to his clients. As part of his plea agreement, Abramoff is expected to help investigators determine whether others, including elected officials, broke any laws.

Indian tribes represented by Abramoff donated more than $20,000 to Hastert around the time of the fundraiser, which was held at Signatures, a Washington restaurant owned by Abramoff. Hastert's campaign committee did not pay the tab for the June 3, 2003, luncheon fundraiser until last year, following media inquiries about the unpaid check.

Hastert, who wields considerable influence as the top-ranking Republican in the House, was joined in his letter to Norton by three of the most powerful House Republican leaders: former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, then-Majority Whip Roy Blunt and Chief Deputy House Whip Eric Cantor, all of whom also received campaign contributions from Indian tribes represented by Abramoff.

Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., the Democratic leader in the Senate, and Rep. Patrick Kennedy, D-R.I., were also among recipients of large contributions from tribes represented by Abramoff. Asked about Abramoff, Reid told the Las Vegas Sun, "I don't know him. I don't want to know him. I know nothing about it other than what I read in the newspaper. ... This is a Republican scandal.""


You wanna nail Hastert for sure because he can turn slime in by the bucket full....and also nail Rove, and Congressman Steny Hoyer...

Its a full-blown pig-trough by foreign governments...

"Boehner's tribal contributions - and his decision to keep the money - might cost him the leadership job that he has wanted for so long.

Turns out Kentucky Sen. Jim Bunning got more campaign money from Abramoff and his clients than originally thought.

The Center for Responsive Politics reported that the Southgate Republican had received $1,000 from Abramoff. But a review of campaign records by Bunning's office uncovered an additional $12,090 from Abramoff's firm and Indian tribes that he represented."


And you want to nail Karl Rove hard.
