Thanks for passing the Vanity Fair article to me. I will read all 21 pages later and share my thoughts. Since the topic of Vanity Fair is about the lies of invading Iraq by the Gerbil, I csme across this article in 2004 about how the Gerbil didn't strike to kill Zarqawi back in 2004:

By Jim Miklaszewski
Pentagon Correspondent
NBC News
Updated: 4:14 p.m. PT March 2, 2004

"Here we had targets, we had opportunities, we had a country willing to support casualties, or risk casualties after 9/11 and we still didn’t do it,” said Michael O’Hanlon, military analyst with the Brookings Institution.
Four months later, intelligence showed Zarqawi was planning to use ricin in terrorist attacks in Europe."
"The Pentagon drew up a second strike plan, and the White House again killed it. By then the administration had set its course for war with Iraq."


And now we finally got Zarqawi all of the sudden by theG Gerbil. And where is the body to confirmed all this? And how ironic you now kill this terrorist when the Gerbil's approval rating has been dropping, the GOP scandals are surfacing, and the election is right around the corner?

This is all about the money and oil!

"At the same time as oil prices fell, the US dollar rose, currency dealers said.
"Clearly, this news added to the momentum of the dollar, which was already on an upturn on the improved outlook for US interest rates," said Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi UFJ forex analyst Masashi Hashimoto"

"Barham Salih, Iraq's deputy prime minister, said separately on Thursday that Iraq would produce 4.3 million barrels a day of crude oil by 2010, more than double its current levels, but analysts say those targets may be optimistic."

"Those curbs - coupled with the ongoing loss of a quarter of Nigeria's output and growing anxiety over Iran's supplies - have helped fuel a near 15% rise in oil prices since the start of the year, extending a rally that began after the US invasion of Iraq more than three years ago."

I wonder if the other Jerry Lewis, the comedian and actor wuld like Jeery Lewis the politican a joke! Another one caught with his pants down full of graft!

From TPM Muckraker:

"A curious detail: Tom Casey hired Brent Wilkes (who is accused of bribing Duke Cunningham, throwing hooker parties at the Watergate, etc.) as a consultant in 1992. Wilkes reportedly pushed Casey to aggressively pursue earmarks. Wilkes is also known to have had close ties with Bill Lowery as far back as the early 1980s. It seems like Wilkes' name should be a part of Casey's story to NBC -- but somehow he isn't mentioned."

I certainly hope that Zarqawi is dead and that this is not more political PR from the Bushies.

However, even if he is dead, I don't think it will have much impact on the overall situation in Iraq or the fight against terrorism.

But the MSM will be all a dither about how much it means. Remember the euphoria when we caught Saddam? In retrospect, it doesn't seem to have amounted to much.

The pictures of Lewis show another politician too full of himself. Power does go to people's heads!

At least some sensible action from the Senate on the estate tax issue. Maybe the old chestnut about the family farm and the little businessman is finally losing its appeal.

When you look at the people that would be affected by the permanent repeal of the estate tax, it is not the small businessman nor the family farmer that is impacted, but the Waltons of the US.

Boy, lots of trouble getting things posted today - are the trolls out again?

Father of Beheaded Man Blames Bush, Not Zarqawi
By Jon Hurdle
Thursday 08 June 2006
Philadelphia - Michael Berg, whose son Nick was beheaded in Iraq in 2004, said on Thursday he felt no sense of relief at the killing of the al Qaeda leader in Iraq and blamed President Bush for his son's death.
Asked what would give him satisfaction, Berg, an anti-war activist and candidate for U.S. Congress, said, "The end of the war and getting rid of George Bush."

"I don't think that Zarqawi is himself responsible for the killings of hundreds of thousands of people in Iraq," Berg said in a combative television interview with the U.S. Fox News network. "I think George Bush is.
"George Bush is the one that invaded this country, George Bush is the one that destabilized it so that Zarqawi could get in, so that Zarqawi had a need to get in, to defend his region of the country from American invaders."

Zarqawi's organization took responsibility for the execution of Nick Berg in May 2004. The video was published with a caption saying: "Abu Musab al-Zarqawi slaughtering an American."
When an Islamist Web site showed the video of a man severing Berg's head, the CIA said Zarqawi was probably the one wielding the knife. The father said he was not convinced.
"I have been lied to by my own government," he told Reuters on Thursday.

Two more postings:

1. From Raw Story:

Halliburton sees earnings doubling in coming years

NEW YORK - Energy services company Halliburton Co. expects net income and earnings per share to double over the next three to five years, Chief Financial Officer Cris Gaut said on Thursday.
In a presentation to investors, Gaut also forecast revenue growth for the energy services group of the company of 20 percent per year or more over the next three to five years.
Once it spins off an interest in its engineering and construction arm KBR, Halliburton will be more of a pure-play energy services company."

2. MSNBC Rick Kaplan leaves MSNBC. This is the same gut that defended Tweety Matthews in being paid money to promote GOP agendas.

Rick Kaplan Resigns: Effective Immediately, President Of MSNBC Steps Down

Rick Kaplan's goodbye to MSNBC staffers:

"I want to let you all know that today I'm leaving MSNBC. It is not often in professional life that someone has the opportunity to end his tenure on such a high note. I couldn't be more proud of the progress we've made together over the last 2 and a half years."

3. From Thinkprogress:

Specter angry about getting snubbed by Cheney.
In a three-page letter to Cheney, Specter complained about the Vice President’s unwillingness to cooperate on NSA eavesdropping oversight. “I was surprised, to say the least, that you sought to influence, really determine, the action of the Committee without calling me first. … This was especially perplexing since we both attended the Republican Senators caucus lunch yesterday and I walked directly in front of you on at least two occasions en route from the buffet to my table.”

You get what you dish out, Specter!

Salon: George Bush Sr. asked retired general to replace Sec. of Defense Rumsfeld

"Former President George H.W. Bush waged a secret campaign over several months early this year to remove Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld," writes Sidney Blumenthal for Salon.com.
Excerpts from the article:
...The elder Bush went so far as to recruit Rumsfeld's potential replacement, personally asking a retired four-star general if he would accept the position, a reliable source close to the general told me. But the former president's effort failed, apparently rebuffed by the current president. When seven retired generals who had been commanders in Iraq demanded Rumsfeld's resignation in April, the younger Bush leapt to his defense. "I'm the decider and I decide what's best. And what's best is for Don Rumsfeld to remain," he said. His endorsement of Rumsfeld was a rebuke not only to the generals but also to his father."

"The elder Bush's intervention was an extraordinary attempt to rescue simultaneously his son, the family legacy and the country."

I read some of the right wing blogs, as well and see that they are gloating over Judge Walton's pronouncement that Cooper's notes will make him and impeachable witness, since he has contradictions in the written versions of his story.

What Ashcroft Was Told
By Murray Waas, National Journal
© National Journal Group Inc.
Thursday, June 8, 2006

"Then-Attorney General John Ashcroft continued to oversee the Valerie Plame-CIA leak probe for more than two months in late 2003 after he learned in extensive briefings that FBI agents suspected White House aides Karl Rove and I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby of trying to mislead the FBI to conceal their roles in the leak, according to government records and interviews. Despite these briefings, which took place between October and December 2003, and despite the fact that senior White House aides might become central to the leak case, Ashcroft did not recuse himself from the matter until December 30, when he allowed the appointment of a special prosecutor, Patrick Fitzgerald, to take over the investigation."

"According to people with firsthand knowledge of the briefings, senior Justice Department officials told Ashcroft that the FBI had uncovered evidence that Libby, then chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, had misled the bureau about his role in the leaking of Plame's identity to the press."

"Officials also told Ashcroft that investigators did not believe Libby's account, according to sources knowledgeable about the briefings, and that Libby might have lied to the FBI to defend other -- more senior -- administration officials.
Ashcroft was told no later than November 2003 that investigators also doubted the accounts that Rove, President George W. Bush's chief political adviser, had given the FBI as to how he, too, learned that Plame was a CIA officer and how he came to disclose that information to columnist Robert Novak."

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - A group of stranded illegal immigrants facing death in the parched Arizona desert saved themselves by using a cell phone to call rescue services, the U.S. Border Patrol said.

The group of eight Mexicans got lost in the desert southeast of Tacna, Arizona, and called for help early on Wednesday after their guides abandoned them during a two-day trek across the border from Mexico.

Disoriented and without food or water, they used a cell phone to dial 911. Rescuers dispatched helicopters and located the group shortly before dawn, the Yuma Sector of the U.S. Border Patrol said in a statement.

Interesting -A Leading Egyptian Government Daily Al-Akhbar June 17, 2005 "All Evidence Proves that Al-Zarqawi Works for America"

"All the evidence proves that Abu Mus'ab Al-Zarqawi is working for America, because his victims are Iraqis and not [members of] the coalition forces under the command of the American occupation forces in Iraq. Abu Mus'ab Al-Zarqawi's official title is 'leader of Al-Qa'ida's faction in Iraq.' Osama bin Laden is the commander of the Al-Qa'ida organization, and this proves that [Al-Zarqawi's commander,] bin Laden, has [also] been an American agent ever since he operated against the USSR forces in Afghanistan in favor of the Americans!

"Let's read the statement issued two days ago on behalf of Al-Zarqawi in Iraq after he killed and wounded dozens of people from among the Interior Ministry and Iraqi army forces, by means of booby-trapped cars in a number of cities in Iraq!

"Raising a few questions is unavoidable in order to clarify the situation and [to understand] who this Al-Zarqawi with Jordanian nationality is.
And more: MSNBC Flashback March 4, 2004: Iraq militants claim al-Zarqawi is dead

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed in the Sulaimaniyah mountains of northern Iraq “during the American bombing there,” according to a statement circulated in Fallujah this week and signed by the “Leadership of the Allahu Akbar Mujahedeen.”
And..Reuters June 8, 2006 Disbelief in Iraqi hamlet where Zarqawi was killed

"The Americans have a habit of bombing places and then claiming Zarqawi or others were there."

Happy belated Birthday SPB ;-) The VF article is great, looking forward to your analysis. I would be happy to publish for you, as well as Waterflake.

The Jordanian-born militant blamed for some of the most spectacular bombings in Iraq was killed in an American air raid that was announced on Thursday.

Police escorted reporters to the house they said was destroyed in the U.S. air raid. But residents were skeptical.

"Zarqawi. Zarqawi. Zarqawi. That's all we hear about. Zarqawi was not here. This home belonged to displaced people," said a village resident, holding up a teddy bear and a child's knapsack buried in the destruction.

Trail of Tears

In the moon when the deer paw the earth
Proud Tribes perished,for
what it was worth.
A Trail of Tears lay to the West
Cherokee Nations were among the best.

Fields of grass cried with sorrow
Stripped of life, with no tomorrow
A Proud Nation had lost all face
Through White Man's law, shown disgrace.

In the moon of the lillies so red
A faint fawns cry now is dead
Gone are the Braves, who loved this land
With their Great White Father,now they stand.

In this day, White Man feel your shame
Hide your head, you bear the blame
Your Proud People ,perish, for what it is worth
Poluted Air, You've tainted Mother Earth.


Babies cried for their Mother's breast
Cheif's hearts bled for all the rest
The Trail of Tears, westward bound
Perished tribes, can still be found.
So look back now, and hide your head
Feel your shame for tears they shed.
The Metal Lady cries out to Mother Earth
Help me save them, for what they are worth.

Here some news:

For the women of Iraq, the war is just beginning
By Terri Judd in Basra
Published: 08 June 2006

The women of Basra have disappeared. Three years after the US-led invasion of Iraq, women's secular freedoms - once the envy of women across the Middle East - have been snatched away because militant Islam is rising across the country.

Across Iraq, a bloody and relentless oppression of women has taken hold. Many women had their heads shaved for refusing to wear a scarf or have been stoned in the street for wearing make-up. Others have been kidnapped and murdered for crimes that are being labelled simply as "inappropriate behaviour". The insurrection against the fragile and barely functioning state has left the country prey to extremists whose notion of freedom does not extend to women.

In two rambling e-mails sent from his Blackberry device to Copley News Service reporter Paul Krawzak, the Republican congressman from Ohio ridiculed the veteran reporter, challenging his ethics and mocking the 5-foot-7-inch Krawzak as “big man.”

That acknowledgment was not enough for Ney, who four days later – on June 3 – had his thumbs flying over the tiny keyboard of his Blackberry, with punctuation and spelling often yielding to his evident anger.
“Let me tell you paul-last week you did not call us for comment ‘you were under deadline,’” began Ney, who then reflected his belief that his critics just keep recycling the same story about the golf trip. “Print the same story-change it to reprint the same story-people in new philly – d’s and r’s call it ‘elk’s politics.’”


2. Very disappointed about hearing what the GOP is doing to the PBS!
From Thinkprogress:

Public broadcasting under attack.
“House Republicans yesterday revived their efforts to slash funding for public broadcasting, as a key committee approved a $115 million reduction in the budget for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting that could force the elimination of some popular PBS and NPR programs,” the Boston Globe reports.

3. More on Abramoff's ties to the Florida murder case:

Abramoff Business Partner Tells Law He Knew of Killing

Down in Florida, Jack Abramoff's business partner Adam Kidan has finally come out with his version of what happened to Gus Boulis. Boulis, who sold his SunCruz, his casino boat company, to Abramoff and Kidan, was gunned down in a mob style hit in 2001.


4. Off Beat news: Even lawyers and prosecutors are human beings too. Prosecutors have to obey the same rules of law as well as ordinary citizens: say 'no thanks' to graft!:

From Talkleft:

Special Prosecutor to Investigate Misconduct of Former Prosecutors
by TChris

"North Carolina District Attorney Michael Parker will ask a special prosecutor to decide whether two former prosecutors should be charged with obstruction of justice or subordination of perjury. As TalkLeft reported here the North Carolina Bar concluded that the former prosecutors withheld evidence and encouraged a witness to commit perjury during the murder trial of Jonathan Hoffman. Parker was urged to hand the investigation to a neutral party given his relationship with the former prosecutors, one of whom is now a judge."

Last night I saw some terror expert on TV that claimed Zarqawi's right hand man, also killed, was his "spiritual advsor" an Imam of sorts that kept Zarqawi on the straight and narrow fundamentalist track, especially in his public statements.

It is believed he was not always necessarily the "pure" adherant and had to be kept in check.

Remember, 2 maybe 3 of the 911 hijackers spent an evening of lap dances in Daytona Beach the night of 9-10.

Just extrapolating here but it's possible that Zarqawi had these tatoos done before he may have converted into that fold.

Western modernism and styles of dress and so forth enchroaching on their youth is one of the big complaints of the Islamic fundamentalists. This was the only reason for nightclub bombing of Australian youth in Bali.

Many honestly think we are all a Jerry Springer show...literally as this is shown world wide now

I just listened to Christy Hardin Smith's talk in the panel. As S-Q, said that she rocks! And I like fact that she explained what the GJ is used for, how many people are involved in this case, and why this case is in secrecy. As an attorney, Christy can share light through her experiences this case through law. And I am glad that she finally said something about The Note.. I really don't follow The Note but that staff really need to read Christy's blog on Firedoglake for pointers. I don't think that public understands how small of a staff that Fitz has on this leak case. And it was great for Christy to point out about how many attorneys were involved in the Ken Starr case against Clinton.

Finally, Christy clears up the matter about the grand jury. Fitz only uses a "regular" jury (and not a jury that only selected for the leak case) and that same jury is used by other prosecutors in other cases. So, the GJ meets Wednesdays and Fridays but not necessarily for the leak case. I like that she cleared up that matter.. The Note seriously need to talk with Christy big time! She did a very good job. I am hoping that a transcript from C-Span is available... PS. Larry Johnson's speech rocks too!

Irve Libby Trial Update: That’s What Friends Are For
Posted by Peter Lattman

"Mary Matalin, a former Cheney aide herself, is hosting a $500-a-head June 20 reception for Scooter Libby’s legal defense fund, reports the WSJ’s Washington Wire. A flier for the event says $5,000 co-hosts include former Commerce Secretary Don Evans, former Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham, and Bush political ad-man Mark McKinnon."
"Libby is accused of lying to the FBI and to the grand jury about his role in disclosing a CIA operative’s identity to reporters and then obstructing the investigation."

"The Law Blog wants to make sure you’ve seen www.scooterlibby.com, the Web site for the Libby Legal Defense Trust. Here’s the site’s welcome message, from Florida real estate developer and former ambassador to Italy Mel Sembler:"

'Since September 11, 2001, Lewis “Scooter” Libby has been one of the unsung heroes in fighting the war on terror, working diligently and making countless contributions on some of the most critical life and death issues that our country has faced. For the past five years, Scooter Libby served selflessly as an Assistant to President Bush and as the Chief of Staff and National Security Adviser to Vice President Cheney. But Scooter”s great service to our country has now been cut short, and his good name attacked. A distinguished group of friends, business leaders and former government officials have joined The Libby Legal Defense Trust to help Scooter defray his legal costs from the recent charges. We hope you will join us in supporting this effort.'"

Bring out the violins from Sebler's speech about the little soldier. Smurf Libby needs dinero folks. A lot of dinero.. I think the smurf may look at alternatives like a bake sale or a car wash? Which one? You have to tune in for the next episode of the smurf Libby

It is better Fitz is a coffeeholic than an alcoholic. With some of the smurf's nanny boo boo defense cries to Fitz, Libby would cause anyone to yearn for the bottle quick! Ken Starr's case of Whitewater and Clinton's scandal cost over 70 million. And Fitz's case? The cost is over $700,000 (a note that the leak case has been 3 years). Fitz's case is apples to oranges compared to the amount of cost for a war on false pretenses!

First posting: Tony Snowjob now in the spotlight and his Gilligan's defense:

From TPM Muckraker:

Tony Snow, Jack Abramoff, and The Affair That Wasn't
By Justin Rood - June 9, 2006, 3:30 PM
The Wall Street Journal's Washington Wire blog reports:
While [the] White House has distanced itself from [Jack] Abramoff, a March 2003 invitation lists press secretary Tony Snow as “Master of Ceremonies” at [a] fund-raiser for the lobbyist’s Capital Athletic Foundation. Snow has “no recollection” of the event but did charity appearances while at Fox News. “I don’t think I’ve even met” Abramoff, Snow says.
Snow can't recall the event because it never took place. The tony affair -- an elaborate "Spy Game Gala" to have been held at the International Spy Museum -- was cancelled because of the Iraq invasion.
But oh, what the night would have been -- a sham fundraiser to beat all sham fundraisers: Fox's Brit Hume was coming, and so was Hardballer Chris Matthews. Then-House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) was planning on attending, as well as Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) and Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA).
It was even organized by a sham fundraiser: Julie Doolittle. That's right, Abramoff paid the so-called "fundraising consultant" wife of Rep. John Doolittle (R-CA) to put the whole thing together. (John gives Julie a cut of his campaign donations as "payment" for having "raised" them.)
It would have been a night to remember. Or, come to think of it, a night most would try hard to forget.

No wonder Tony Snow job got the gig as the WH press secretary to succeed the little buckeroo, McFelon!

Second posting:

I had posted the Jerry Lewis drama where his aide's husband has ties to Lewis and made big bucks as a lobbyist. There is more news of more ties with Lewis.

From TPM Muchkraker:

Another Spouse Cashes In On Ties to Lewis
By Justin Rood - June 9, 2006, 1:27 PM

"Paul reported yesterday on Richard White, the husband of aide-turned-lobbyist Letitia White, who's getting a piece of the action through his wife's connections to House Appropriations Chair Jerry Lewis (R-CA)."

"But Richard isn't the only spouse getting cut in because of ties to the world of Jerry Lewis. Alexandra Shockey, the wife of another Lewis aide-turned-lobbyist, Jeffrey Shockey, is also doing well for herself as a lobbyist with extraordinary connections to Lewis.
After several years as a Lewis aide, Alexandra dropped out of her political career to raise a family, returning only when her husband gave up his million-dollar-plus lobbying gig to work for Lewis again. She scooped up his clients -- and a lobbyist's income -- to push their interests in front of Lewis, while her husband, now a senior aide on Lewis' committee, helps her old boss dole out $900 billion in federal money every year."

Good eve folks,

Just to let you know, the first step to muzzle the freedom of the internet has passed the House.


The House voted on legislation yesterday that could determine the future of the internet and public access television in this country.

This controversial telecommunications legislation would permit phone and cable companies to operate Internet and other digital communications service as private networks, free of policy safeguards or governmental oversight.

The bill would effectively end what is known as “net neutrality” which is the concept that that everyone, everywhere, should have free, universal and non-discriminatory access to the Internet.

The bill would also cut back the obligation of cable TV companies to devote channels to public access and fund the facilities to run them.

Democracy is going to hell in a handbasket...soon there will be no more research over the internet...no more free blogs or video bloggers...

Think that's to far fetched? Well think again, Google made a deal with China blocking certain keywords. People will still have blogs but they and other information wont be found by the users.

We will be fed with the information the controllers of the internet want us to see and we all know who that is...

Maybe this world is another once Hell Aldous Huxley

Yes, there has been long times about the government trying to control the internet. The internet has become the biggest communicators and use for alternative news and information by the public.

When word of the missing money first surfaced in 2004, Congress passed legislation creating an office of Special Inspector General, assuming that this new agency would root out the problem and figure why all that taxpayer money had disappeared, and why only minimal reconstruction was going on in destroyed Iraq, instead of a massive rebuilding program as intended.

The new inspector general, an affable attorney named Stuart Bowen, went to work and came up with a report in early 2006 that sounded scathing enough. Bowen found cases of double billing by contractors, of payments for work that was never done, and other scandals. But he never came up with more than $1 billion or so worth of problems.

Now we know why.

It turns out that Bowen was never really looking very hard.

I can't listen to W lie one more time.
A response to his lies at the West Point graduation last week-from a West Point graduate class of '62.

Google West Point Graduates Against the War for the rest.

We pay attention to everything up here at West Point, Mister Bush. Even the fact that you told the same joke about giving cadets amnesty that you told four years ago. You should be more respectful of West Point, Mister Bush. That seems to be a pattern in your behavior, smackhead. Telling the same stories over and over. And you throw around the names of old grads like Eisenhower and Bradley, using them to somehow justify what you and your big buddies in DC have done to the world. What do you know about Eisenhower or Bradley? You might get away with that stuff in the oval office, but not up here. Not at West Point. You got that, wack? You got that loud and clear, beansmack? Good. Retain same. Fop

The Long Gray Line spans the generations, mister. Its spirit fills the geographic, intellectual, and moral space that is West Point. The old grads are always there. Mister Bush, you want to buy this place? No? Well stop gawking! Keep those slimy eyeballs straight ahead. Pick a spot on the opposite wall and examine it! You never said anything about what those old grads said. You just got the cadets' attention by saying the words, Eisenhower and Bradley, but then that was the idea, wasn't it? Then you launched into how President Truman did this, that, and the other thing. You even pulled a Winston Churchill with your "never back down . . . never give in . . . never accept anything less than a complete victory" routine. It reminded many of us of that "mission accomplished" crud that you blabbed off the coast of San Diego a few years ago. Just who are you, Mister Bush? Makes cadets wonder whether there's anything inside that fine civilian suit of yours? You read me, Mister Bush?

Do you remember what you said here at the Academy four years ago? About pre-emptive action? Do you know what Dwight Eisenhower said about that much earlier? Don't hem and haw, Mister Bush. Here at West Point there are only three answers for smacks like you: Yes sir. No sir. No excuse sir. Remember that! And remember this! And his fellow classmate from the class of 1915, the class the stars fell on, Omar Bradley was even clearer. "Wars can be prevented just as surely as they can be provoked," he said, "and we who fail to prevent them must share the guilt for the dead."

Senior Lewis Aide Took $2 Million From Lobby Firm
By Justin Rood - June 9, 2006, 4:39 PM

"Guess who picked up nearly $2 million last year from his old lobbying firm? Jeffrey Shockey, the senior committee aide to House Approps Chair Jerry Lewis (R-CA) who left the Hill to lobby his old boss, then returned to work for him again.

Shockey's career been held up as one of the most egregious examples of the "revolving door" phenomenon, where folks leave government service and immediately cash in from lucrative posts in the private sector. Shockey has now shown one doesn't actually need to leave the Capitol to take money from private interests."

"Now it's clear that Shockey's set up more of a "drive-thru window" arrangement."

"Update: My colleague Paul asks a salient question: who's ever gotten a $2 million severance package -- for quitting?"

Trade deficit rose in the U.S.:

"U.S. April Trade Deficit Widened 2.5% to $63.4 Bln From March
June 9 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. trade deficit widened in April as the cost of imported oil rose and purchases of industrial machinery and automobiles increased, a government report showed today.
The gap in goods and services trade widened to $63.4 billion from March's $61.9 billion, the Commerce Department said in Washington. Exports were little changed and imports rose, while the deficit with China widened.
Crude prices approaching a record lifted the nation's energy- import bill, while economic growth that's faster in the U.S. than in the European Union and Japan propelled demand for manufactured goods made overseas. Further increases in the trade deficit may be limited by weakness in the dollar and a slowdown in consumer spending caused by rising interest rates."

melees, Jackie, et al....and the rest of the day to yourself! Well,
we're still wondering what "sealed vs sealed" is all about. PJF and staff have been very quiet this last week. Hopefully, it is the lull before the storm.

Andrew Lourie and his staff must be
very busy as well. My fond hope is that all these jokers in congress that are being investigated for wrong-doing will be elected in the primaries so that
they will all be scrambling around come November.

Every time I think about November 7th, I am very troubled by the fact
that the Diebold machinations might
rear their ugly head again, robbing
the people of their Constitutional
rights. The only way we will find out is to bring in folks that will investigate and have some oversight
of this criminal bunch!

Have a great day all!

"Shockey's career been held up as one of the most egregious examples of the "revolving door" phenomenon, where folks leave government service and immediately cash in from lucrative posts in the private sector."

Most all of the Defense contractors I have worked for were headed by retired Pentagon brass.

I'm not criticizing this just stating a fact. They bring experience and contacts and usually run an efficient, fair and tight ship. Usually.

That's the point here, sometimes it goes wrong, the fraud, overbilling, favoritism, nepotism etc. lt's too easy to get away with.

"The Revolving Door" is wide open for corruption. I have seen it too many times personally and finally whistle blew myself out of my last venture years ago.

Seriously, in verbatim, our mantra was "don't worry about it, it's a government contract".

Anonymous PJF in Court Monday said...

Judge Walton, as he has done in previous hearings, is likely to ponder whether Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation is actually nearing conclusion. Because Fitzgerald has indicated that the investigation is ongoing, the judge has allowed the Special Counsel to withhold certain documents dealing with President George W. Bush’s deputy chief of staff, Karl Rove, which Libby's attorneys contend are crucial to their preparing a defense."

Top of the morning everyone
I hope PJF is right and that Judge Walton does give a ruling. Libby is still stalling for time but I think the Judge sees right through that. What ever legal thing Libby and Rove can do it has to be done before the Nov. election. When the houses change most likely we'll be getting a Special Proscutor for the impeachment of the President.

pazfI just read MS-NBC's article about the Monday hearing. I know Grandmanuk will remember this but for the rest of you this case and criminal acts were done before with the old play book of Richard Milhouse Nixon as I said most were students of Nixon's. To some up Libby's case I've copied an historian's conclusion.

The legal journal reached back in scandal history to find that, "during the Watergate scandal, President Richard Nixon advised aides to say "I don't remember" when they testified before the Senate Watergate Committee. Subsequently, John Mitchell, Nixon's attorney general, H.R. Haldeman, his chief of staff, and John Erlichman, a policy adviser, all were convicted of perjury."

Case closed.

2006-06-09 | They got him - the big, bad, beheading berserker in Iraq. But, something's gone unreported in all the glee over getting Zarqawi … who invited him into Iraq in the first place?

If you prefer your fairy tales unsoiled by facts, read no further. If you want the uncomfortable truth, begin with this: A phone call to Baghdad to Saddam's Palace on the night of April 21, 2003. It was Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on a secure line from Washington to General Jay Garner.

The General had arrived in Baghdad just hours before to take charge of the newly occupied nation. The message from Rumsfeld was not a heartwarming welcome. Rummy told Garner, Don't unpack, Jack - you're fired.

What had Garner done? The many-starred general had been sent by the President himself to take charge of a deeply dangerous mission. Iraq was tense but relatively peaceful. Garner's job was to keep the peace and bring democracy.

Unfortunately for the general, he took the President at his word. But the general was wrong. "Peace" and "Democracy" were the slogans.

"My preference," Garner told me in his understated manner, "was to put the Iraqis in charge as soon as we can and do it in some form of elections."

But elections were not in The Plan. (more)



Andrew Grove's "Here It Is"---


But here’s what you probably don’t know- L. Paul Bremer’s last gig before capitalizing on the Iraq War was at Marsh & McLennan, where “Jerry” was the CEO of Marsh’s Risk Management collective. It’s interesting that nobody else has noticed that Marsh was at the heart of 9-11, and despite being woven into almost every aspect of the events- few question Marsh’s role in any of it.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., June 9 -- A man who bought a gambling-boat operation with lobbyist Jack Abramoff in 2000 says he knows who gunned down the company's founder the following year, authorities said.

Adam Kidan told authorities last month that SunCruz Casinos founder Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis was killed by John Gurino, a man with mob connections who was later shot to death by a business partner, said Art Carbo, an investigator with the Broward County State Attorney's office.

Carbo said Gurino -- a supporter of late mob boss John Gotti -- had not been part of the investigation before Kidan's May 1 interview. "He came up with all of this information," Carbo said Friday.

Iraq's Attorneys Practicing in a State of Fear


Iraq was hardly an example of blind justice before the 2003 invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein, ...

..."It was an impressive overall legal system, as long as we did not get into the political sphere," said Khaled Abou El Fadl, a law professor at UCLA and a scholar of Islamic law. "What we have consistently forgotten is how well-educated Iraqi academics are...

"We were waiting for the day when Saddam was gone," said one lawyer, Ali Gatie al-Jubouri, who spent nine years studying engineering in Michigan,..."But now we feel sorry that Saddam's days are over. It's a tragedy."...

...The occupation adopted the law of power and not the power of law," Hamdoun said. "The lawyer's job is that of civilization."...

..."When the U.S. military came in, they basically destroyed the entire infrastructure of the state," Bassiouni said. "Not willingly. But by allowing the looting of all the public buildings, by firing everyone who was a member of the Baath Party, basically the state was destroyed."...

..."The whole system has collapsed," Bassiouni said. "This has become a lawless country...

...The lawyers, along with American legal scholars, almost unanimously blame the United States

U.S.: 3 Guantanamo Inmates Commit Suicide
By JENNIFER LOVEN (Associated Press Writer)
From Associated Press
June 10, 2006 1:44 PM EDT
WASHINGTON - Three detainees at Guantanamo Bay committed suicide in what apparently was a joint pact to protest the U.S. military prison that holds suspected terrorists, a senior administration official said Saturday.

They are the first deaths reported at the detention center in Cuba, where the United States is holding about 460 men on suspicion of links to al-Qaida and the Taliban.

It was not immediately clear when the inmates died.

It also was not clear whether the suicides were connected to a violent clash last month between detainees and military guards at Guantanamo.

Good Morning/Afternoon.Evening:

Happy Saturday Fitzbloggers:

Well, I just read the lastest of the Fitz and smurf legal drama on MSNBC. As Jackie pasted the comments from the legal expert, the smurf and his lawyers still haven't learned. They are playing the same playbook from the Nixon era. The smurf defense is the definition of insanity. Libby is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Nixon's plans failed and so will the smurf. I am glad that Judge Walton is getting all of the cards out of table from the prosecution and defense so that they all can move forward to the trial next year. This dog and pony act and tic for tac from the defense have really nauseated Judge Walton. And the smurf baby bottle tantrum speeches and motions are about to end. Just as the players in the Nixon era played the Gilligan's defense and were all convicted for perjury, Libby has sealed the same fate in the leak case. History does repeat itself.

I wanted to commented on the Vanity Fair article in which Anon at 11:47 am, passed along to me for reading. I read the entire article last night. All I say is that it sheds light the actual planning bythe Gerbil and company is orchestrating the war in Iraq and the fake Niger documents. It also angered me from reading this because the Administration had used the American people like props. the Gerbil and company planned the blueprint of invaded Iraq as early as August 2002. The propaganda began a few days before the anniversary of the terrorist attack September 11, 2001. Best believe thatthere will certainly be a special prosecutor on the investigation into a conspiracy to invade Iraq on false pretenses. There are some many people from the WH, buddies of the Gerbil, and countries such as Britain and Italy involved this scandal. Lots of hush money especially to Blair. The more information that comes out about this WH conspiracy the more the Gerbil's legacy as the President will be disgraced and shamed. The Gerbil lied to the Amercian people the minute that he stole the election and crawled into the WH as President Gerbil.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - The U.S. military flew in two forensic specialists Saturday to examine the remains of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi "to see how he actually died" and to reconstruct the last minutes of his life, a spokesman said.

The examination comes after U.S. authorities altered their initial account of the al-Qaida leader's death, first saying he died outright in a U.S. airstrike, then saying he survived but died soon after.

Also, an Iraqi man raised fresh questions, telling Associated Press Television News that he saw U.S. soldiers beating an injured man resembling al-Zarqawi until blood flowed from his nose.

Inside the Little House of Scandal
By Justin Rood - June 10, 2006, 11:31 AM

Curious to see more of the Little House of Scandal -- the million-dollar Capitol Hill home purchased by lobbyist and former "earmark queen" Letitia White and a defense contractor, which is the listed address of a defense-related PAC run by Rep. Jerry Lewis' (R-CA) stepdaughter?

Reader WD sends a link to an online "virtual tour" of the home, probably circa 2003 when White and her co-owner, Trident Systems CEO Nick Karangelen, bought it for $50,000 over asking. Take a peek.

Here are the photos of the home:

"May it become his epitaph." And certainly will be King Gerbil. And the only thing that will be in his casket is the bottle! The bottle was the only thing that the lame duck Gerbil President really gave a damn about! I did say from prior posting that the Gerbil should be outsourced to another planet. With so much shit that the Gerbil has done to the American people, I don't think a single planet would welcome or want him! The only thing left for him is to be outsourced to "The Outer Limits!"

The aliens would take the Gerbil and do all their testing, however, once they determined there wasn't any intelligence in that creature's head, they would throw him back to earth! In fact, the aliens would never take another creature from earth because they would be convinced that the earthlings were so stupid, it would be a waste of their time! LOL

If the aliens ever did testing on the Gerbil, they would find out that his brain size is of a BB and they shipped him back to Earth, give him the boot from their ship, and ask themselves: "Are all the earth people are that stupid like the Gerbil? Do we really want to invade a planet of imbeciles like the Gerbil?" And are all the earth people yearning the bottle because we found signs of Jack Daniels in the Gerbil's system!"

Sorry I missed your comments.

"it would be a closed hearing, really wanted to know how a closed hearing would (or would not)appear on the court's docket." The answer is the court docket will show "closed hearing." It the protection against the media and the public.

FYI! regarding closed hearing? It is up to the judge whether the court should be closed or not. In the case of AT&T, they were denied a closed hearing.

"Will anyone know about a hearing on Sealed v. Sealed except the parties involved?"

The answer is no!

Hi lies are being more exposed now and than ever especially reading the Vanity Fair. and the election fraud that has been you main concern on this blog will be exposed. The Gerbil will exposed for the murderer that he has been since he sat his Gerbil ass on his throne from the get go. You reap what you sow. And his base is falling apart like a cheap suit! And the Gerbil's handlers are running for the hills, Roger? The Gerbil's handlers have the "every man for himself" mentality.
