Kathleen, you really set a nice tone for the blog. I'm the one censored while you can call a public official such distasteful names. Is this the kind of man that Mr. Fitzgerald really is to condone such trash talk.

Rosemary, you continue to confuse me on what the rules are for this blog. I want to abide by the rules but it appears they only apply to me and everyone else has free reign.

I read that article too. I don't think Gonzales would really quit. He was mislikely made because what he did hadn't been done in 200 years. He broke the law but let's understand he's still learning the job. So he can't be expected to preform like he has had experience in Constitutional law. Mr. Bush has so many people leaving now he doesn't need to replace the Attorney General's job. Mr. Hastert should given Gonzales a break he most likely wont do it again or he can make it law.

His parents are probably illegal to top it off.

There is NO task too low, no job to dirty, no job too "wet", no black ops too dirty, no torture too difficult, no rendition to undeserving, no freedom to small to take away...ad infinitum.

Mr. Gonzales would do anything for George Bush - legal, illegal, treasonous, unthinkable .. whatever Bushco asks for to CYA, Mr. Gonzales will do.

He has blood all over his hands - the blood of OUR soldiers and OUR citizens.

Reflective of this administration...we evidently got a President who liked to play war games with REAL kids - other people's.

Gonzales fits into the Bushco mold...if it's illegal, let's bring it on!

Rove Tourettes syndrome runs in family, I think I'm catching it now too.

===================================
Twice Novak was reportedly involved in situations leading to Karl Rove being fired from political campaigns: first in 1980 from George H.W. Bush's vice-presidential campaign, and second in 1992, while working for Bush's reelection campaign. Both times Rove was fired from the staff for leaking campaign information to Novak. Rove and Novak both deny that Rove was the source.

http://en.wikipedia.org/
wiki/Robert_Novak

"Sources close to the former president George H.W. Bush say Rove was fired from the 1992 Bush presidential campaign after he planted a negative story with columnist Robert Novak about dissatisfaction with campaign fundraising chief and Bush loyalist Robert Mosbacher Jr. It was smoked out, and he was summarily ousted" (Esquire Magazine, January 2003). Robert Novak provided some evidence of motive in his column describing the firing of Mosbacher by former Senator Phil Gramm: "Also attending the session was political consultant Karl Rove, who had been shoved aside by Mosbacher." Novak and Rove deny that Rove was the leaker, but Mosbacher maintains that "Rove is the only one with a motive to leak this. We let him go. I still believe he did it." [21] (Sources: "Karl and Bob: a leaky history," Houston Chronicle, Nov. 7, 2003; "Genius," Texas Monthly, March 2003, p. 82; "Why Are These Men Laughing," Esquire, January 2003.)

During testimony before the CIA leak grand jury, Rove apparently confirmed his prior involvement with Novak in the 1992 campaign leak, according to National Journal reporter Murray Waas.

Saturday nights get busy on Blogger and can tie up its servers sometimes, probably all that was. From yesterday....
===================================
As he gaveled the House to order this morning, Hastert was praised, and ABC News was denounced by his Republican colleagues.

"This non-credible journalism I think degrades freedom of speech and the reputation of journalists," Congressman Lee Terry, a Republican from Nebraska, said.

On WGN Radio in Chicago, Hastert said the story was a leak planted by the FBI to intimidate him.

"It's just not true, you know. The Justice Department said there is no investigation, and this is one of the leaks that come out to try to, you know, intimidate people, and we’re just not gonna be intimidated on it," he said.

As for the facts of ABC News' story itself, this is what we've confirmed today:

That the FBI interrogation of convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff included specific and repeated
questions about his relationship with Speaker Hastert along with other members of Congress.

That, although Hastert is not a formal target, the FBI has been looking into a letter Hastert and others sent to the Secretary of the Interior urging her to block an Indian casino that would have competed with casinos represented by Abramoff.

That a few days before the letter was sent, Abramoff hosted a fundraiser for Hastert at a restaurant he owned.

The Speaker today said the letter repeated long held views about certain Indian casino rules.

"So it was a letter saying this precedent shouldn't be set," Hastert told reporters today.

When questioned about the letter's timing after a fundraiser for Hastert at a restaurant owned by Jack Abramoff, Hastert replied, "That's a coincidence."

http://blogs.abcnews.com/
theblotter/2006/05/hastert_letter_.html

-"Hastert said the story was a leak planted by the FBI to intimidate him."-

And just in case "somebody" missed it:

-"Hastert said the story was a leak planted by the FBI to intimidate him."-

First posting:

The Gerbil show!

From Thinkprogress:

The Truman show.
President Bush invoked the name of former President Harry Truman 17 times today in his West Point commencement address. “Bush drew parallels between Mr Truman’s Cold War efforts and his own in fighting global terrorism.” One Truman quote that Bush did not invoke today: “I never did give them hell. I just told the truth, and they thought it was hell.”

First, the Gerbil is acting like he is Harry Truman.. Can't wait to see who he imitates next.. Say,.. hmmm?? Patrick J. Fitzgerald, the Special Prosecutor??? I don't think any future President will ever reference the Gerbil. If anyone in the public utter the Gerbil's name to any future President, the future President will say: "Excuse me while I use the restroom." And that President would never come back from the restroom!

"Ney and Ralph Reed ties to Abramoff exposed in court
by Joe in DC - 5/27/2006 08:12:00 AM
The trial of David Safavian, the White House aide, is keeping Abramoff and his GOP cronies in the news:
The names of Rep. Bob Ney and former Christian Coalition leader Ralph Reed spilled onto the public record in a federal criminal trial Friday, highlighting the peril politicians face in the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal.

In the first case arising from the Abramoff influence-peddling probe, an FBI agent read out the names of the participants on a weeklong golf excursion to Scotland and London that Ney, R-Ohio, Reed and two of Ney's congressional staffers went on with Abramoff in August 2002."

And I hope that Ney, at least, gets a decent rug on his head instead of the horse yak hair of a toupee!

More Problems For NYC's Ex-Top Cop
Former Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik Still Facing Corruption Probe

(AP) Bernard Kerik once enjoyed a national reputation as a brash, self-made law enforcer. As New York's police commissioner, he was at Mayor Rudolph Giuliani's side during the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. By late 2004, President Bush wanted him for homeland security chief.

Kerik's fame faded after allegations of ethical lapses doomed his nomination. His troubles, however, have endured.

"A grand jury in the Bronx has been hearing testimony about a possible corruption case against Kerik involving reputed mob associates, alleged influence peddling and a questionable home-renovation project."

Ralph reed's testimony would be interesting. I would like to see him explain all emails between him and Abramoff that are entered as evidence as of late.
===================================

At Monday’s debate between the two GOP candidates for lieutenant governor in Canton, rival Casey Cagle pointedly asked Reed if he would be willing to testify in the Safavian trial. Also, Cagle asked, “would you plead the Fifth?”

Reed replied he would testify if asked, and that he would not take refuge in his right not to incriminate himself. Reed and U.S. Rep. Bob Ney were on the 2002 golf trip with Safavian. Reed has been accused of no wrongdoing. Ney has been named, indirectly, in the guilty pleas of Abramoff and his associates.

I've already tried to make the point about the name calling. I think it is very childish. That is not an attack, it is a fact. I enjoy the art of the debate and I learned long ago that when your opponent results to childish name calling you are on your way to winning the debate. I doubt that any of the litigators that post here use those tactics in the court room. There are probably a dozen ways or more to make the point that someone is a "prick" without calling them one. The name calling really detracts from some possibly good points by so called professionals. That would be my proposal, use just a little decorum when you post your comments.

Jan, we do agree about the spending. If they impeached Presidents for lying then almost every President of the modern era would have to be impeached. Clinton said he wouldn't raise taxes and that was one of the first things he did. We don't really know how many lies Clinton told, he was only convicted of one and was fined and lost his law license. But he still wasn't convicted at his impeachment hearings. We should have impeached Carter for just screwing up the economy so bad. I'm sure we could have found enough on Reagan and Bush #1 too.

Folks,

Here is latest of the dog and pony show by the Smurf Libby:


Reporters in Libby case must turn over select documents

"WASHINGTON (AP) — Time magazine must give I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby drafts of articles so the former White House aide can use them to defend himself against perjury and other charges in the CIA leak case, a federal judge ruled Friday
U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton limited the scope of subpoenas that Libby's lawyers had aimed at Time, NBC News and The New York Times for e-mails, notes, drafts of articles and other information.

Walton said The New York Times might have to turn over drafts of articles and other information during Libby's trial if former Times reporter Judith Miller contradicts her previous statements about the case when she testifies as a government witness.
The judge ruled that Miller doesn't have to surrender two notebooks, her phone records or appointment calendars because the materials aren't relevant to Libby's defense.
NBC News also does not have to give Libby's defense team one page of undated notes taken by correspondent Andrea Mitchell because Walton said she is unlikely to testify at Libby's trial, which is set for January

Catherine Mathis, a spokeswoman for The Times, said the newspaper is "gratified" that Walton did not order it to give Libby editorial materials.
Walton said Time magazine must turn over drafts of first-person stories that reporter Matthew Cooper wrote about his conversations with Libby because the judge found inconsistencies between them."

I'd start there and pull every thread till the whole cloth unraveled. It don't take a street musician to figure this sh*t out.

SPB,

Some suggestions for you - use spell-check, don't ramble, give us the sites and we can get the info, we don't need you to editorialize for us.

And Rosemary needs to pay Jan a visit and maybe you also.

Cheers - have a great Holiday - don't forget to put the flag out.

To all us- When coalition forces arrived in Iraq, the Iraqi people were given assurances and told about this democracy by the Coalition’s Provisional Authority...by Larry Diamond a Senior Fellow at the conservative Hoover Inst.

Democracy, as it is commonly understood, is about more than free and fair elections. It requires "independent courts, equality before the law, and constitutional limits on the powers of government. It establishes independent institutions to control and punish corruption and abuse of power." No one in a democracy "may be arrested, imprisoned, or exiled arbitrarily. No one may be denied freedom without a fair and public hearing by an impartial court."

T,

My sarcasm on the Quakers. They have been harrassed and actually infiltrated by undercovers posing as new members and only bcause of the their anti-war stance and vocalisms. Or so they claim and why would they be false about this?

Just one group of many but to me that one stands out.

Jan dear, you go ahead and say what you please you peacemaker you.

Nice picture of the planet Vwnus.. I didn't know that you were into astrology...

Subway,

I didn't think it was the sun.. the sun looks very different when I went to Hawaii a couple of years ago since the the sun in Hawaii is in the equator... It would be nice if the sun looks like the photo. The photo of Venus looks so peaceful!!

Astronomy not astrology. Astronomy is the study of the planets and stars...and astrology is like "what is your sign"? I know they sound almost the same but very different. :)

Thank you Anon for saying those kind words. I think that people are getting a little testy on this blog. they are saying things that they probably don't mean to say..

Former Fed,

I respect you for your position. But, this is Fitzgerald's blog and he is the person to decide what comments are allowed on the blog. And he has always told all of us that he welcomes all comments regarding if we disagree or agree with one another's comments. And about spell check?? I may not be an English major, but we did have a Vice President of the United States that couldn't spell "potato." And still Quayle served as V.P. regardless of bad grammar. And yes, FF, I always had my flag up regardless if this is Memorial Day. I have friends overseas in Iraq and Afganistan sir. So, I have and always will be true patriot to my country. And you, sir, have a wonderful Memorial Day too!

T,

Many here have connections to the Military charities and I do know what you mean. The wounded from war are not covered well nor or the hardships their families are going through either.

Personally, a second cousin here sent group email to us right before his first F-18 mission into Iraq with the last line of "I hope I don't kill any children". Consider this, and how are the others we sent there wrongly coping now?

Jan you go girl! Dont you worry bout a thing!

No, I don't work with Fitz personally.. I am what you call
a "remote" attorney.. We, on few occasions, exchange emails. But, then again, Fitzgerald exchange emails with other attorneys... Remeber, Fitz has over 300 attorneys who work for him. you can see has many employees that he is dealing with..

I told everybody about this blog and how it keeps me up lifted you all are great. Yes I know we get some who want to disrupt the flow but we're stronge as long as we stick together. After reading the comments I'd like to thank all of you for not judging me for my mistakes. Sometimes I feel my age and the eyes aren't as good as they use to be so thanks for being kind to me. Well I'm going to sleep now talk to you tomorrow.

Prayers for you and the families of loved ones serving around the world. They are blessed to have you supporting them. Prayers for all the loved ones that are gone this 'holiday'; try and remember happy and fun times with them, it does ease the pain of loss. God bless.

CJT, I thought she did fine too. It is hard to be uncivil when someone like Jan is trying to take the discussion to a higher level. It is obvious Jan and I will probably never agree on much but that shouldn't stop the debate. She does have me researching the Building #7 thing with an open mind.

Jan, I'll post as Al. I am a Vietnam Vet so I know a little about War. I have many Vet friends and I don't know any that like War. I also know that War Protestors even though they have good intentions can do more harm than good. Just one man's opinion.

Anonymous Al said...

Jan, when I came home from Vietnam I took off my uniform and just kept quite. Today my Vet friends and I get together and speak proudly of our service. Many of my friends have sons and daughters in the military today. I have a nephew that served as a marine in Iraq. I come from a family of many WWII vets. So I feel I have a right to support the troops and the war effort today. My family and I have paid our "dues" to freely express support for our troops and the President.

Al :),

My Dad did two tours. I was born on Okinawa. I wish I could have known a Dad that wasn't affected by the horror of war. Bad things happened in my family because of it. I know that will happen to lots more familys in the future. How does that saying go? "It takes 7 generations to erase the sins of a father" I know I got that wrong.

So, I don't want to cause trouble here again today. I'll step back and let the news exchange happen. It's time for my morning shows :)

Good to have you with us Al!

Take care Jan, I don't want you to get Troll status. I have great respect for all Vets. There was this country song that comes to mind on this day of remembrance. "All gave some, some gave all". Today I especially remember the ones that gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Al,

I know you vets were treated so badly...
My Dad was so proud about Desert Storm. He saw them come home to celebration , thanks and in honor. He cried. He was so proud. He waited a long time to feel that way.

He came back from his war and all there was was a sweet old woman that took it on herself to setup a table with cookies and juice to greet his group. He too just kept quite... I will give honor to you all.
