All,

Other related news. Here is an update to Fitz's case on Conrad Black. From WSJ:

"In Chicago yesterday, U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve ordered Conrad Black’s lawyers to turn over documents Black had wanted to keep from the government. Black’s attorneys — Canadian lawyer Edward Greenspan and Chicago’s Edward Genson — had asked the court to quash a subpoena issued by the prosecutors demanding 13 boxes of documents relating to the SEC’s civil case against Black. Judge St. Eve rejected the motion and ordered the papers turned over by April 10.

Black, the former chairman of newspaper company Hollinger International, was indicted last year on fraud and racketeering charges. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges and is scheduled to face trial in March 2007.

According to the Tribune, after the SEC requested documents from Black’s attorneys in 2005, Black went to the headquarters of his Toronto-based company and removed 13 boxes of papers. Security cameras caught the removal on tape, and Canadian authorities forced Black to return the boxes."

What I want to know what really important in those 13 boxes for Black to attempt to remove in 2005? Were there important names and documents that would link him to fraud and racketeering?

SPB,

Very interesting article, must be some good stuff in those boxes.

Any ideas on who/what/when for the questions we all want to know?

Or will we have to endure more arrests of Congress members who actually want the truth to come out. (Like Cynthia McKinney)

Condi and her "thousands of tactical errors" comment - just like the gutless Bushies to blame things on the little people.

But it is the strategic error that will come back to haunt them all. History will show all of them to be the absolutely most dishonest and disastrous administration this country has ever seen.

Not much is said about the Conrad Black case. From lost e-mails,tapes now boxes what's next lost memory. The onion is taking the plea. Now how many more names will come to the front page or who will resign. DeLay is cornered and it looks like he's come to the end of the road. As for the mistakes made in the invasion I say tell that to our troops and to the families that have lost love ones. Remember Bush said he would be the only person to make the decision to invade Iraq, now he says the problems are Saddam's fault.
Spring Fitz oh really well its cold, rainy and not much like spring here in California or at lease my area of California.

As Anon at 2:46 pm says: the truth will come out about Black. Be patient and watch the truth unravels. Yes, there will be much more Congrss people that you hear about as the Bush Administration corruption unsurfaces. You may be shocked by some Congress people and some you may not be surprised. Stay tuned!

In other news:

More nominations by the Gerbil. From Thinkprogress.org:

EMPLOYEES' RIGHTS -- BUSH NOMINATES FORMER WAL-MART LAWYER TO OVERSEE LABOR DEPT. WAGE DIVISION

"President Bush recently nominated Paul DeCamp, an attorney with a long history of working to undermine basic rights at work, to head the division

DeCamp represented Wal-Mart in trying to prevent a class of 1.5 million women -- the largest employment class action ever certified -- from suing the company for discrimination in pay and promotions," the AFL-CIO blog reports. "He has proposed taking overtime pay away from workers in ways that were even more extreme than what the administration actually has done -- and suggested easy outs for bosses who misclassify workers as not eligible for overtime pay."

And Walmart of all people! Boy, the CEO, Lee Scott is in The Gerbil's back pocket!

More in the news for Friday:

1. House Ethics Committee is investigating McDcrmott over Gingrich:

House Ethics Committee, despite Abramoff fallout, still investigating Democrat over Gingrich

"After the House ethics committee took limited action at the conclusion of a six-hour meeting Thursday, ranking member Alan Mollohan (D-W.Va.) issued a statement highly critical of the panel. Ethics members announced only the continuation of an investigative subcommittee probing Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.), initially established in 2004, ROLL CALL reported late Thursday.
McDermott has been ordered to pay $700,000 in damages and legal fees to now Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) after accepting a tape from a Florida couple that contained a recording of a phone conversation among GOP leaders in 1996 that discussed how to deal with ethics charges chasing then-Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA)."

2. Cries for Help Edited Out of 9/11 Tapes


Emergency operators listening to trapped callers' heartbreaking pleas from the burning World Trade Center repeatedly said help was on the way while they struggled with crashing computers, utter confusion and their own emotions, several hours of 911 calls released Friday show.
http://www.rawstory.com/showarticle.php?src=http%3A%2F%2Fnews.yahoo.com%2Fs%2Fap%2F20060331%2Fap_on_re_us%2Fattacks911_calls%26printer%3D1%3B_ylt%3DAhR7vAyadIa8BQBXXNlo28NH2ocA%3B_ylu%3DX3oDMTA3MXN1bHE0BHNlYwN0bWE
Now, why would the cries of the 9/11 victims were erased? Is it a coverup?

3. From Thinkprogress.org:

Baseball Steroid Investigation Shouldn’t Skip Over Bush’s Texas Rangers

"Bud Selig, the commissioner of Major League Baseball, has tapped former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell to lead a thorough and impartial investigation into steroid use in professional baseball. Selig has given Mitchell the permission to “expand the investigation and to follow the evidence where it may lead” through at least the last 15 years.
From 1988 to 1994, President Bush was managing general partner of the Texas Rangers.
Among his players during that time, several — Ivan Rodriguez, Juan Gonzalez, Rafael Pailmero (tested positive) and Jose Canseco (admitted) — are all alleged to have used steroids while playing for the Rangers under Bush.

President Bush has denied being aware of steroid use in his tenure as managing partner of the Rangers"
And the Gerbil wants to put an end to steroids from a man who couldn't manage a baseball team in Texas, drunk, cocaine user, and a deserter?

John Dean backs Feingold censure movement

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20060331/pl_nm/security_censure_dc


Its getting hot up there! I hope they introduce it to the senate floor and put all the corrupt republicans and other whimps on the spot, and then I hope they keep re-introducing censure resolutions!

How about just re-introduce one until the elections, prove to the world what the corrupt republicans and their democrat enablers are really about!

>:-D

Well, of course, Dean will back Feingold to censure Bush. After all, Dean was part of the Watergate era and sees the same antics and strategies used by the Bush Administration. Many of the major players were in the Nixon era. So, they are repeating history. I just hope many of the Senators will back Feingold because if they don't, their political careers (Democrat, Republican, Independent, etc.) are in jeopardy!

I forgot pass this along. Ever wonder where your taxpayers been with Homeland Security. Here from Americablog:

"Americans might have naively thought the Department of Homeland Security was going to use their tax dollars on the basics that would aid first responders."

Wrong!


"The Bush DHS is using tax dollars to subsidize a Fortune 500 oil company. ONE MILLION DOLLARS for a FORTUNE 500 refinery. That's what we learn from Department of Homeland Security Inspector General's report from February, 2006 (page 21):
For example, a Fortune 500 refinery received a port security grant in round five totaling almost $1 million for fencing and surveillance upgrades at a refinery located in a major port. It did put up the same amount in matching funds. This company recently reported 3rd quarter net income in excess of $1.2 billion. We remained concerned about the absence of more specific guidance on security measures proposed by private companies that are capable of paying for them, and what measures they should pay for."

Currently, Fortune 500 company -- with 3rd quarter net income of $1.2 billion –


Taxpayers money are being funneled to benefit Bush's agenda!

Anon at 2:46 pm,

I was reading more about Tony Rudy's plea bargain. Five years,huh?

http://files.findlaw.com/news.findlaw.com/wsj/docs/delay/usrudy33106crplea.pdf

The Hammer's mouth and not willingness to cooperate with Earle will bite him.

On a side note: a followup to the jilted ex-fiance of Scalon, Emily Miller. According to WSJ, the couple sent a save-the-date card to guests that read: "The Celebration Begins." for the wedding April 10 , 2002. (BTW, their wedding invitations are pretty elegant on WSJ). Scalon broke off the wedding in the spring for a waitress. But, in November 2002, Mr. Scanlon quietly married his new girlfriend (seven months later from the month of the wedding). Cold shot from Scalon.

Lets hope Feingold or someone introduces them over and over again, and gets the whole ball rolling here!

Big Dick Cheney speaking out of both sides of his mouth, manure falling everywhere!

Did Little Soldier know about the influence peddling schemes? Its just like these crooks you know, especially the republicans and laid back democrats to profit off someone else's bottom line issue.

And here it was the sewage companies. Now we know why they are all full of shit and Feingold was right!

SPB Hmm...erased? The reaction would only be much worse when people are reminded of that and then find out why it really happened.

I cannot imagine the who could begin to "screen" the tapes-great articles as always.

I feel like I am asking my Dad (he didn't care for such questioning) "Are we there- YET?

You know the Germans, French and Italians have some quality 911 pictures. In the forensic sense, that is.

FF- "Tactical errors" my rear-they don't really belong to the military. The educated officers were against it purely FROM a strategic vantage. (I read US Army War College studies for fun...total nerd girl) Plus nobody knows strategy like the military, I am really impressed by how they teach decision making skills in their officers-I am not seeing it in the "yes men" currently inhabiting the Pentagon.

All,

More evening Biloxi news:

1. From the Thinkprogress.org. New poll number from the Gerbil:

"37%.
President Bush’s approval rating in a new Time poll, his lowest ever."

2. More on indicted Tooty Rudy:

Did convicted ex-DeLay aide write Amazon review attacking campaign finance reform?

"A book review at Amazon.com attacking campaign finance reform written nearly five years ago bears the same name as an ex-aide to Congressman Tom DeLay." Rudy gave the book five stars!


"The review also lists Arlington, Virginia as the writer's home address, and Rudy's About page on Amazon also includes the nickname 'tonycrudy.'
According to the Political Money Line Web Site, Tony C. Rudy gave donations to DeLay and other Republicans in 2001 from an address in Arlington, Virginia during his tenure as a lobbyist at Greenberg Traurig." Here is the website to the Moneyline website:

8-D,

I just read your article on the wastewater project! Cheney got his hands into everything. What do expect from that bastard Cheney? Cheney would sell his own mother to invest a buck in a business project! And you know damn well thst the little soldier knows about Cheney's deals. Libby is a "mimi me" of the butterball. I wouldn't be surprised if the little soldier invested in that wastewater project! Fitz should comb through the little soldier's files. Cheney gets his claws into the wastewater project while D.C. has contiminated water issues. Cheney would rather for the pepole to drink crappy water yet prosper bucks on a project in Mexico. Go figure!

Fitz I forgot to ask you something I just remembered. What does Michael Mason think of George Mason University and is he rooting for them as his name sake. I never heard of the school before them making the final four. But when I heard the name of the college I thought of your friend Micheal first. As for me I'm rooting for the winner I'll let you know after the game is over who I picked. ( smile )

Last article for the evening: While you are sleeping...

White House Tipped Lawmakers to Port Story


“WASHINGTON - Anxious to avoid new flare-ups over seaport security, the White House alerted dozens of Republican lawmakers on the eve of a story by The Associated Press on the subject and provided their staffs with an advance briefing

The March 22 briefing involved between 50 and 100 congressional offices, participants said. It focused, they said, on an AP story being published the next day that disclosed that the Bush administration was hiring a Hong Kong conglomerate to help detect nuclear materials inside cargo passing through the Bahamas.
The no-bid, $6 million contract represents the first time a foreign company will be involved in running sophisticated U.S. radiation-detection equipment at an overseas port without the presence of U.S. Customs agents. “

Biloxi,

I have a strong feeling they'll win this year too! I haven't felt that way since Chicago won its 8th consecutive championship, so I hope I'm not wrong!!!

It is for certain going to be quite the game, and all over soon.

Meantime we now know what the lawmakers do in their spare time, when it comes to being full of it!

Cheney and his wasted deals: http://rawstory.com

I look forward to seeing censure type resolutions introduced all the time and for the Senate to grow a real backbone for once.

Anon at 6:32 pm,

I am looking forward to the Bruins winning. I am now watching the Mason vs. Florida. Florida is in the lead. You mention Chicago? I think that you are referring to the Chicago Bulls? If so, it will take a long time for another basketball team to have a championship team with a legacy like the Bulls, Lakers, Celtics, etc. It will take a long time to have another Magic Johnson or Michael Jordan. When you mention about the lawmakers, they smile to the public and ask for their vote and then stab the public in the back with backend deals to benefit them! I, too, look forward to the censure of the Gerbil and the removal of the cancer in the Administration and corrupted lawmakers.

Cheers!
