Fitz it's time for Sean and his team to get back to work. The info that they have in their case brings move criminal acts to light. I just hope someone doesn't blame Enron/Cheney/Bush corruption on Bill Clinton. It's starting to sound the the dog ate my homework excuse. I did notice that all the attention is on Hillary/Bill which means someone is really really scared. Lieberman didn't help his cause with honesty as his involvement in the Enron matter. I guess now we know why Liebermann hugged Bush and support the GOP corruption team. Lay down with dogs you come up with fieas.
Jason is now two for two not bad.

I thought that when people are found guilty of a crime they are incarcerated until sentencing. Why is this not the case with Lay and Skillen?

When 911 happened I had the overwheling feeling that I was like a child that woke up one morning to find my mother raped and left for dead but still alive. Now I know that she new all along who did it but was too afraid for her children to tell the truth. All the while the real perp of the crime, "father","FATHER", the one whom we all trusted to protect us, was teling us we have to do what he says so that now on will ever hurt us or our mother again, was the one that did it. We believed in Father and before we knew it, he fenced us in, turned us against each other and made us his slaves.

It's time to wake up.

Anon: Lay/Skilling posted bail and turned in their pastports. They are free until they are sentenced to jail. They can request to stay out of jail until their appeal is heard. But make no mistake about it these two are guilty as charged and now their felons. Let's just see how their best friends Bush/Cheney work their magic to make this go away.

Thanks, Jackie.

I didn't know that bail was an option once one had been found guilty, is that something that is pleaded at the start of a trial, or does everyone have that option?

Blair Bowed to U.S. Pressure in Speech, Paper Says
British Leader Said to Make 'Significant' Changes on Iran, Global Warming in Address at Georgetown

By Kevin Sullivan
Washington Post Foreign Service
Monday, May 29, 2006; A16



LONDON, May 29 -- Prime Minister Tony Blair caved in to White House pressure by sharpening language on Iran and softening it on global warming in a speech he delivered Friday at Georgetown University, according to a British press report Sunday that Blair's office immediately denied.

According to the Sunday Telegraph, Blair made "significant" last-minute changes to his major foreign policy address and "objections by President George W. Bush's inner circle played a key role in the alterations." An official at Blair's 10 Downing Street office, speaking on condition of anonymity as is standard practice here, said it was "categorically untrue that any White House objective played any part" in the speech.

Blair is frequently criticized in Britain for his close relationship with Bush, who is extremely unpopular among Britons. The prime minister is particularly faulted for his alliance with Bush in the Iraq war. Critics have complained that Blair seems too eager to please Bush in what many here view as a lopsided relationship that has benefited Bush far more than Britain.

Anon Captial crimes are somelikely the only ones that don't get bail. Bail is only to assure that you will appear in court. Your innocent until proven guilty. At the sentencing the jail will decide if a felon can stay free on bail or go right to jail. Our system of law leans not to punish but to lean to fair unbais justice. Bail is based on alot of factures and it's for all accused people regardless of crimes unless it's a capital case. Capital cases are like murder or terrorism. It's a fair bail process and not judged personally. I know our law system to hard to understand but I've studied other countries legal systems and I'm proud to say we have the best that others should consider. I hope this helps.

We did not convict Ken Lay..a jury of his peers did.

If I am not mistaken, the appeals process is post-conviction, which tells me that he is guilty of what he was accused of.

Whatever funds he has left, or whatever funds his true believers give to him to help him out in his appeal process, he can spend appealing. But, we did not convict him.

Ok Al fraud and lying under oath is no longer a crime. If you disagree with the Bush Administration you have committed teason. Abramoff should be free even if he did commit a crime, Duke admitted guilty but because he's part of the GOP it's not a crime. Now as for those Dems and those who speak out against Bush now those are the real criminals and should go right to jail for such crimes. I need a laugh today thanks Al.

Survival of the most criminal by calling in the markers from those who benefitted the most from his/her criminal activities before they lost it all by getting caught.

Screw the sheep that were foolish enough to get caught up in that old American Dream of house, car, 2.5 kids, dog and never aspired to more than that.

Screw the folks that supply the youngun's for unjust wars because your kids are gonna be safe in an ivy league school with a back pocket full of deferments from mommy's / daddy's old boy connections.

Shame on us American's for allowing these people to do this to our country.

Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid accepted free ringside tickets from the Nevada Athletic Commission to three professional boxing matches while that state agency was trying to influence him on federal regulation of boxing.

Reid, D-Nev., took the free seats for Las Vegas fights between 2003 and 2005 as he was pressing legislation to increase government oversight of the sport, including the creation of a federal boxing commission that Nevada's agency feared might usurp its authority.

In an interview Thursday in his Capitol office, Reid broadly defended his decisions to accept the tickets and to take several actions benefiting disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff's clients and partners as they donated to him.

"I'm not Goodie two shoes. I just feel these events are nothing I did wrong," Reid said.

Reid had separate meetings in June 2003 in his Senate offices with two Abramoff tribal clients and Edward Ayoob, a former staffer who went to work lobbying with Abramoff.

5:52 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

AP recently reported that Reid also wrote at least four letters favorable to Abramoff's tribal clients around the time Reid collected donations from those clients and Abramoff's partners. Reid has declined to return the donations, unlike other lawmakers, saying his letters were consistent with his beliefs.

Senate ethics rules require senators to avoid even the appearance that any official meetings or actions they took were in any way connected with political donations.

It is generally a good article by Leopold. However, the last sentence irks me:

To this day, neither Cheney nor Bush has acknowledged that they got it wrong and that their inaction helped fuel the California energy crisis.


Bush and Cheney did not merley "get it wrong," they were clearly lying through their teeth. They had to have known damn well that Enron and other energy companies were manipulating the markets. And that energy market manipulation was also being used to manipulate the state politically as well. I would say they are complicit in the fraud, as was their FERC appointee Pat Wood. There probably exist documents that could be used to prosecute and incarcerate the bunch of them, if there was a zealous prosecutor up to the task.

More on Hookergate:

Here ia excerpt of an article that shed a lot more about certain key people involved in the hookergate:


Poker parties a window on way he curried favor
By Dean Calbreath and Jerry Kammer
STAFF WRITER AND COPLEY NEWS SERVICE

May 28, 2006

"Swirling with liquor, cigar smoke, bawdy jokes and spirited hands of poker, the gatherings were like an all-American night out with the boys.
But the parties – held for more than a decade in posh suites at the luxurious Watergate and Grand Westin hotels in Washington, D.C. –were anything but small-town Americana."

"Participants included CIA agents, lobbyists, defense contractors and, occasionally, staffers and members of Congress. The cigars included the best that could be bought from Fidel Castro's Cuba. Some of the players arrived in Mercedes-Benz limousines hired by the host, Poway defense contractor Brent Wilkes."
"The poker games provide a window into the way Wilkes befriended powerful people, including former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham, who could help him get millions of dollars in federal contracts. Because of published reports that the hotel suites were sometimes visited by prostitutes – which Wilkes heatedly denies – the bribery scandal is now known in some circles as “Hookergate.”
Most of the people familiar with Wilkes' attempts to win contracts refused to let their names be used in this article. Some feared being drawn into the widening corruption investigation. Others worried they would jeopardize their jobs by making public comments."

"During his frequent trips to Washington, Wilkes rented a three-bedroom hospitality suite on the sixth or seventh floor of the Watergate Hotel, which adjoins the office complex made famous by the Nixon administration's political-spying scandal of the early 1970s. During Wilkes' stays at the Watergate, Monica Lewinsky, a key figure in the impeachment of President Clinton, lived there in a suite her family rented."

I hope folks keep digging into Hookergate. Those 'poker players' need to pay back any taxpayer money spent on the parties, hookers, and limos. I would be interested in seeing who else comes up on the 'guest list.' No more limo rides for them; they need to start taking the subway and the bus.

Better yet, let's send my parents to D.C. to run the federal budget. There would be no credit cards left in the hands of politicians. None of them would be staying in five-star hotels anymore, no tax money would be used for any alcohol, everyone would be turning off the lights every time they leave a room, and using the office photocopier for personal use would be considered exactly what it is, stealing. Any defense contractor, etc. caught overcharging would get spanked, have to stand with their nose in the corner, mouths washed out with soap, and be grounded. All the money saved would go straight to paying down the national debt and schools.

BTW--I did not get punished like that. All it took for me to behave was the *threat* of getting punishments like that. ;-) Unfortunately, the threat of punishments does not seem to deter the folks in D.C. from misbehaving . . .

The indictment that wasn't
May 30, 2006 05:36 AM / FUBAR .
It has been 18 days since a liberal web site reported Karl Rove had been indicted and given 24 hours to get his affairs in order.

On May 13, controversial journalist Jason Leopold reported on Truthout.

The news spread through the liberal blogosphere like locusts. Journalists from major news organizations called sources but not one could confirm Leopold's story, which originally said Rove had just "24 hours" but was later amended to "24 business hours."

Truthout stood behind the story for a few days, then executive director Marc Ash, issued what he called a "partial apology" to readers for "getting ahead of the news cycle." That, so some, sounded like anothre way of saying "we speculated, gambled, and lost."

A couple of weeks ago, we were inclined to give Leopold and Truthout the benefit of the doubt but after 18 days and more than 80 "business hours," it is time to realize that the report of an indictment against Rove was probably just wishful thinking and the Truthout is out of truth on this one.
