Praise The Lord...

Reed concedes - I am a loser

Former Christian Coalition leader Ralph Reed conceded defeat about 9:50 p.m. in Georgia’s Republican primary for lieutenant governor.

“Tonight my candidacy for lieutenant governor comes to an end,” he said.

He promised to work for the GOP ticket, including Sen. Casey Cagle (R-Gainesville), his rival in the lieutenant governor’s race.

Reed conceded at 9:48 p.m., speaking to a crowd that cheered for the first time all night.

With him was his wife, Joann, and their four children.

“Today, Joann and I celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary. It was an important reminder of what’s really important.

“Stay in the fight, don’t retreat, and our values will win in November,” he said.

Reed left quickly but stopped to say he was pround of the race he ran. He said he had no plans to run for office again right now. Ha!

With 43 percent of precincts reporting, the Georgia Secretary of State’s office showed Cagle with 55.2 percent of the vote, compared with 44.8 percent for Reed. The real question begging to be asked is who are the 44.8 percent of the morons who voted for this snake oil salesman?

Great news on Reed! The house of cards are really falling!

I thought this is an interesting article from TPMmuckraker:

In CT, Dem Challenger Stumbles on His Halliburton Stock
By Justin Rood - July 18, 2006, 6:37 PM

Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) has nicked his primary challenger, rich-guy Ned Lamont, for owning stock in Halliburton, the giant contracting services company once headed by vice president Dick Cheney, which has been accused of overcharging the government many millions of dollars.
Over at TPMCafe, Greg Sargent captures Ned's troubles responding ("it was a pittance -- less than $50,000!"). We muckers look forward to seeing where this goes.


Lieberman's smear campaign on Lamont's stock with Halliburton will come back and bite him. Lieberman needs a check up from the neck up on his dirty laundry. Hmmm... Here is an article of Lieberman in 2002 with his ties to Enron:

Joe Lieberman’s Cover-Up
Where is Robert Rubin?

Given the central role played by Citigroup in concealing Enron's debt from investors, the general public, and government regulators, why, then, hasn't former Clinton treasury secretary, Robert Rubin, now the chairman of Citigroup's executive committee, been called to testify before Congress? In particular, why hasn't the chairman of the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee, Senator Joseph Lieberman, sought Rubin's testimony? After all, Lieberman is heading up the Senate's investigation into Enron's bankruptcy and fraudulent dealings.

And:

during Enron's final days Rubin played a direct role in attempting to conceal Enron's financial condition from credit-rating agencies,

Hmm.. being in charge with the Senate investigation of Enron? We know that there were sepcial favors given to Lieberman with the Gerbil and company since they have ties to Enron!

Hi guys
I hope Fitz post something about Malinda Gates she is a strong role model for woman.
I was also thinking about the Israel Lebanon conflict so I put this together.
When confronted with Israel's attack on Lebanon, President Bush said that every nation has the right to defend itself. Of course, this does not apply to Palestine, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon or North Korea.
Bush has given Israel the weapons and 10 billion dollars to help their military. Now Bush will tell each country if they can have weapons to protect themselves. I told you that once Bush broke the international rules another country would do the same. Now watch for Iran, Syria and all the muslin countries to protect their own. The Bush plan will fail. Israel never sent any soldiers to Iraq or Afgan yet we are expected to support their invasion of Lebanon. Somethings wrong with that picture.

Jackie--right again. Gates turned into a generous person after he married Melinda. Before that, he kept all that money to himself.

Yes, something is really wrong with the warped Gerbil thinking about the violence in Israel and Lebanon. I wish someone would take up a collection and buy an entire page of advertising in a bunch of different newspapers in the world, telling the people out there that not everyone in the U.S. agrees with the Gerbil. It would remind the world that there are still people in the U.S. who want PEACE.

Final posting:

This is for Chimpcoulter. You made a comment about your disappointment in the NAACP inviting the Gerbil to the convention. I did say that I wonder what Julian Bond's response. Well, here is what Julian Bond's address to the 97th NACCP Convention on July 16, 2006 and he really added a lot of digs about the Gerbil. Personally, I don't think that the Gerbil will score any brownie points for the African-Americans at the convention. And Julian Bond knows why the Gerbil would come to the convention: votes! Here is an excerpt:

Chairman Bond's Address to 97th NAACP Convention
By
Julian Bond
Chairman, NAACP National Board of Directors



Our host city is the home of the most powerful people in the United States and the most powerless. You know who the most powerful are. We citizens of this great city are the most powerless, without voting representation in Congress. Those who are trying to export democracy abroad ought to be as interested in expanding democracy here at home, starting with voting rights for the District of Columbia.
Thank heavens we are meeting here this year and not in Indiana. According to the Department of Homeland Security, you see, Indiana has more terrorist targets - 8,591 - than any other place in the nation. Here in Washington, by contrast, there are only 416, making DC among the nation's safest places. Of course the Homeland Security Department's list of terrorist targets includes Old McDonald's Petting Zoo in Woodville, Alabama, Sweetwater Flea Market near Knoxville, and the Amish County Popcorn Factory in Berne, Indiana, so its reliability is a bit questionable.
You might recall that during last year's convention, I extended an invitation to President Bush to come to this year's convention. In 2005, for the fifth straight year, he had declined to appear before us, citing scheduling conflicts. That was true - he had spent the previous weeks scheduling conflicts.
Recently, I had occasion to talk briefly with the President at a reception before the White House Correspondents dinner here in Washington in late April. After singing Happy Birthday to one of the guests, the President, who was standing next to me, asked, "Julian, how old are you?"I'm sixty-six", I said. "I used to be too young to be president; now I'm too old."
"You're not too old", the President said. "John McCain is 70."
I replied, "I guess I'll ask John McCain if I can be his Vice-President."
"No", the President said. "A confident man would ask John McCain to be his Vice-President."
Feeling confident, I then took the opportunity to invite the President to this convention, reminding him that when he last appeared before us, as candidate Bush, we treated him well, and promising, if he finally chose to come as President, we would treat him well again. He made a sound, which at the time I took to mean either "I'll think about it" or "not in your lifetime."
We now know it was the former. This year the convention has come to the President - and the President, we hope, is coming to it.
The President surely knows that seeking black votes while simultaneously ignoring the nation's largest civil rights organization is contradictory.
Bruce Gordon has made developing a relationship with the President and the White House a goal of his tenure, and we thank him for his efforts, which are paying off.
We are delighted that the President may be coming - we think he's doing a heck of job.
You should know as we begin our week in Washington that a different language is spoken here, a sort of Orwellian code.
"Bi-partisanship," for example, in Washington means "when the other side caves in." "Spreading peace" means "pre-emptive war." "Staying the course" means "to relentlessly pursue a disastrous policy regardless of the consequences." "Compassionate conservatism" translates into "tax cuts
for the rich." "Endangered species in need of government protection" are "the rich people's families who inherit mega estates."
"Activist judges" are "jurists who do not belong to the Federalist Society." "Non-partisan judicial appointees" are "jurists who do belong to the Federalist Society." "Faith-based initiative" means "passing out money and saying 'trust me'".
"Moral values" equate to "keeping homosexual illegal immigrants from burning flags." And "racial discrimination", of course, is "a problem of the past which no longer exists."
Those who say that "race is history" have it exactly backward - history is race. America, scrambled, after all, spells "I am race."
And America is race - from its symbolism to its substance, from its founding by slaveholders to its rending by civil war, from Johnnie Reb to Jim Crow, from the Ku Klux Klan to Katrina.
Those who engage in declarations and denials to the contrary do not serve our country well.

Folks, today was truly Al Rogers troll's worst nightmare. A double black tuesday for the neocons.

First off Rep. Jerry Lewis is back in the hotseat for bribes, and Ralph Reed has withdrawn his race for Governor.

The Federal Probe continues to close in on Ralph Reed! Where is he taking all those KFC chicken wings?!??

Second after Reed's political demise, is Jeff Fisher has unloaded a bombshell to the NAACP!

"Youth- and civil-rights advocates are speaking out against the rising presence of cops on campuses and administration complicity in what critics call a school-to-prison pipeline.
July 14 – The testimony of Florida parents and young people compiled by the NAACP Legal Defense Fund is alarming.
Fifteen-year-old Latia Smith said she was a bystander during a fight at school between two girls when a police officer threatened her with arrest, grabbed her and dislocated her shoulder.
The ten-year-old son of Latrell Brassfield was arrested at school for "disruptive behavior."
And five-year-old Ja'eisha Scott was arrested, handcuffed and put in the back of a patrol car for hours for having a temper tantrum.
From Florida to California to Connecticut, students and parents across the country are contending with an education system that is increasingly implementing harsher methods of disciplining students, and placing thousands of armed officers on school campuses. Youth and civil-rights advocates call the growing presence of law enforcement in schools, along with increasingly punitive punishment for misbehavior, the "school-to-prison pipeline."
Damon Hewitt, assistant counsel at the Legal Defense Fund (LDF), says schools started by implementing "zero tolerance policies" resulting in mandatory suspensions or expulsions for certain infractions. "But what we see now are next-generation policies that more often than not involve significant police activity on school campuses," he said.
The April LDF report looked at arrests and suspensions of children in six school districts in five different Florida cities. Co-written by the NAACP and the Advancement Project, a national advocacy group that provides legal and research assistance to local communities, the report compiles state Education and state Justice Department data with testimony from parents and youth.
According to the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice, out of 28,008 school-related referrals to the department in the 2004-2005 school year, the most serious offense for 63 percent was a misdemeanor.
The LDF report chronicles dozens of stories of police using excessive force when arresting children for these offenses. One of the most egregious cases was in Duval County, in which police – in front of TV cameras – arrested, handcuffed, shackled and took to jail twelve black high-school students for allegedly stealing $60 worth of soda and food from the cafeteria. The report states, "While it appears that students of other races were involved in the incident, only black students were interrogated and arrested by police officers two days later with little to no evidence to support the arrests."
These officers, also called School Resource Officers (SROs), often lack any specialized training in working with children and youth. Kevin Campana, executive director of the National Association of School Resource Officers, said they often need to "soften up" officers.
Campana told The NewStandard that because many police officers are used to "clearing the call" – responding to and resolving complaints as quickly as possible – his organization tries to "slow [officers] down and get them in touch with kids and how to interview kids and how to work with them."
Campana's organization, which includes 9,000 officer-members, offers voluntary training courses to police taking positions in schools. He said officers wear uniforms, carry firearms and are encouraged to walk the halls between classes.
Hewitt of LDF says the origins of the school-to-prison pipeline are found in the prison-industrial complex – the privatization of prison and related services that has accompanied a dramatic rise in US incarceration rates.
"I think it's no coincidence that society is getting more and more punitive," Hewitt told TNS. "But on top of that, the people who end up in prison are those who are excluded from a mainstream school environment as youth – the folks for whom quality education is just kind of a cruel illusion."
Hewitt explained that as students are punished more severely for common misbehavior, they are often taken out of the classroom and relegated to inferior education settings or even in and out of juvenile detention. He said the people affected are the same populations as those disproportionately incarcerated as adults: blacks, Latinos and low-income whites.
"And to be clear, we're not talking about children who are bringing guns and knives and drugs to school," Hewitt said. "It's not the activity that's changed among the students, it's more our responses that have changed over the last few decades."
Youth in New Haven, Connecticut, frustrated by what they said was unfair treatment of students, are currently screening a short film they made last year with the help of Youth Rights Media, an organization focused on young people's empowerment.
"I had not heard the phrase 'school-to-prison pipeline' before you folks contacted us," says an attorney interviewed in Book 'Em: Undereducated, Overincarcerated. "And yet it completely crystallizes something I've been really angry about a really long time."


News Standard News: The truth exposed

Tom Heneghan lit the flame, but now you all- EVERY one of you must carry it through D.C. and the world.

Jeff Fisher attends the NAACP.

An audience has stood up, took pause and realized how serious the school situation is and how we must change it once and for all-eliminating the election fraud!

Mel Sembler has caused this over a period of many years, via neocon degradation and destroying the students.

Vulnerable enough to do just what Sandra Mortham did- steal elections, help neocons steal elections, and DESTROY society...

The very fabric, rests in the people now to tear down this very system for good!!!

And one should be grateful for the constant trolling of the Al Rogers stooges!!! Or Mel Sembler who trolls Fitz blog! That means their karma has caught up with them!!

The more they troll, the more neocons fall and the faster the neocons fall. Because whatever deity you follow, be it christ or the eternal, the neocons have become their enemy.

Only BAD karma will be wrought for the neocons for now on; because what you pursue you also create! And AL ROGERS plus JEB BUSH-JOHN ELLIS BUSH and the last of the neocons have created nothing but negative energy!!!!

Three cheers for We The People!!!!!

Conservative Anger Grows Over Bush's Foreign Policy

By Michael Abramowitz
Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, July 19, 2006; Page A01

At a moment when his conservative coalition is already under strain over domestic policy, President Bush is facing a new and swiftly building backlash on the right over his handling of foreign affairs.

Conservative intellectuals and commentators who once lauded Bush for what they saw as a willingness to aggressively confront threats and advance U.S. interests said in interviews that they perceive timidity and confusion about long-standing problems including Iran and North Korea, as well as urgent new ones such as the latest crisis between Israel and Hezbollah.

"It is Topic A of every single conversation," said Danielle Pletka, vice president for foreign and defense policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute, a think tank that has had strong influence in staffing the administration and shaping its ideas. "I don't have a friend in the administration, on Capitol Hill or any part of the conservative foreign policy establishment who is not beside themselves with fury at the administration."

Conservatives complain that the United States is hunkered down in Iraq without enough troops or a strategy to crush the insurgency. They see autocrats in Egypt and Russia cracking down on dissenters with scant comment from Washington, North Korea firing missiles without consequence, and Iran playing for time to develop nuclear weapons while the Bush administration engages in fruitless diplomacy with European allies. They believe that a perception that the administration is weak and without options is emboldening Syria and Iran and the Hezbollah radicals they help sponsor in Lebanon.

And on another front, Sananda has more to tell us "an all ye who have ears to hear," message,about the atrocities in Lebanon...much of this is being backed up by Amy Goodman of Democracy Now. He corrects his report that I posted two days ago. The MOAB's are being dropped by C130s, not a fighter jet.
Selamat Kasitaram
SJa

Sananda through Candace Frieze - July 18, 2006 - Update on Lebanon

Beloveds, tonight I come with both good news and bad. The good news is that great progress has been made to allow the announcement under the current circumstances of war. Everything is tested and in place, only it remains to gather the people at the appropriate time. I remind you this announcement is about the removal of the American Regime and the placement of the temporary government. NESARA announcement activities will come at a somewhat later date and these will be preceded of course by the removal of the Federal Reserve System.

The bad news is that the American government, which is behind Israel, openingly before the world, but not telecast in the United States, ignored a special message given to them via Jerusalem, and has gone ahead with greatly increased bombings. This will very soon end, as Admiral Jhonka does have a good deal of control and enforcement aided by us at this time.

There have now been 7 MOAB's [Mother Of All Bombs] dropped on Beirut and vicinity, causing a great deal of damage and loss of life. Oh America, those asleep to this, for shame. American planes have dropped these bombs; they use C-130's for this, in correction to mine and Candace's error in the term "fighter planes," in the previous message. We did have a great deal of interference during that work, and in re-construction of vanished material, somehow that mistake was made. A MOAB is much too large and requires other amenities to its use, and can't be dropped from a fighter such as an F-16.

Israel does not have its own MOAB's. The MOAB was also used in the first attacks on Iraq over 3 years ago that was called Shock and Awe. There is nothing of Shock and Awe about this warfare.

We, personally ourselves, made an incursion into Jerusalem, and this should have been reported two days ago on your TV. This provided a very clear message that there was weaponry not of Earth used there. This has been ignored, and so it will be repeated quite soon. We will not interfere with holy sites in Jerusalem, not to worry, but those in control of this war, did get a strong message. You will have to await this on your television to know what happened.

A warning to those BBB&G's that read this material: We shall do what we did in Jerusalem, once again, elsewhere of importance in Israel. This will occur in about 24 hours.You are ordered to stand down, and avoid this. We can do this every 24 hours until you do. We are the ones, now behind Hezbollah in support of Lebanon. You can stop blaming it all on Syria and Iran.

As to Syria and Iran, you yourselves do know that they only fight the beast in these times, and are justified in their actions against Israel. I do hope that you will take our threat seriously and end this war immediately. As soon as you stop your fire, so shall Hezbollah. It is entirely in your laps.

Many innocent people have been lost in this war; many more than acknowledged on TV. There have been quite a few deaths also of Americans. It was you America that bombed the airport, making the job of getting Americans and all other tourists out, much more difficult. And you sit here, bringing further harm to American citizens, in your actions.

I warn you, once again, that Hezbollah will be the one to win this war, we are there, we have galactic personel on the ground, giving advice, and assisting Lebanon in other ways. Stop now, or it shall be your own country that suffers greater harm. You will be harmed until you do stop this war. I most surely hope this will occur tomorrow, by the time that American's awaken in the morning. Good day, I am Sananda Immanuel.

Candace: in discussing this with Sananda the last couple days, he assures me that whatever occurred in Jerusalem, did not cause the deaths of civilians.

Story/0,,1823817,00.html

The US is giving Israel a window of a week to inflict maximum damage on Hizbullah before weighing in behind international calls for a ceasefire in Lebanon, according to British, European and Israeli sources.

The Bush administration, backed by Britain, has blocked efforts for an immediate halt to the fighting initiated at the UN security council, the G8 summit in St Petersburg and the European foreign ministers' meeting in Brussels.

"It's clear the Americans have given the Israelis the green light. They [the Israeli attacks] will be allowed to go on longer, perhaps for another week," a senior European official said yesterday. Diplomatic sources said there was a clear time limit, partly dictated by fears that a prolonged conflict could spin out of control.

US strategy in allowing Israel this freedom for a limited period has several objectives, one of which is delivering a slap to Iran and Syria, who Washington claims are directing Hizbullah and Hamas militants from behind the scenes.

George Bush last night said that he suspected Syria was trying to reassert its influence in Lebanon. Speaking in Washington, he said: "It's in our interest for Syria to stay out of Lebanon and for this government in Lebanon to succeed and survive. The root cause of the problem is Hizbullah and that problem needs to be addressed."

Chicago Trib-Experts rip Rove stem cell remark

"[Rove's] statement is just not true," said Dr. Michael Clarke, associate director of the stem cell institute at Stanford University, who in 2003 published the first study showing how adult stem cells replenish themselves.

Harris: I'm Not Under Investigation

Still, there were indications her campaign was increasingly involved in the investigation of former defense contractor Mitchell Wade, convicted of bribing a California congressman.

Since the beginning of April, campaign finance reports show, the Harris campaign has paid $35,806 to a high-powered Washington lawyer, Benjamin L. Ginsberg, who specializes in campaign finance law. Harris retained Ginsberg, of the firm Patton Boggs LLP, shortly after she was identified as having received illegal political contributions from Wade.

Thanks great that you wrote a letter to the Wilsons. I think everyone should wirite or email their support to this couple. They are just everyday people that want to hold the public officials. They are no different than all of us who want answers! but, it is time to hold all public officials accountable and put the corrupted officials running for office out of business!

From the Makato Free Press, this GOP Congressman was for the Iraq War:

Gutknecht gives grim assessment

"Congressman Gil Gutknecht found the situation in Iraq more bleak than he anticipated during a weekend visit to the war zone, and said a partial withdrawal of some American troops might be wise.

Gutknecht, a strong supporter of the war since it began in March of 2003, told reporters in a telephone conference call Tuesday that American forces appear to have no operational control of much of Baghdad.

“The condition there is worse than I expected,” he said. “... I have to be perfectly candid: Baghdad is a serious problem.”...

...But he said the next six weeks could be critical in determining whether stability can eventually come to the rest of the country, and he believes removing some American troops is necessary to send the Iraqi government a message that it can’t rely so heavily on the American military much longer.

Chimpcoulter,

Yes, I can't wait for the Wilson's trial too. Yeah, it seems everyone is jumping on the BBQ thing with Ambien GEF. Must be because of the free food!

In other news:

1. Once again, Porkrind looks like an idiot! From Thinkprogress:

SCIENCE -- EXPERTS RIP ROVE'S STEM CELL REMARKS:

Senior Bush aide Karl Rove waded into deeply contentious scientific territory, telling the Denver Post's editorial board that researchers have found "far more promise from adult stem cells than from embryonic stem cells." According to scientific experts, the field of stem cell medicine is too young and unproven to make such judgments. "[Rove's] statement is just not true," said Dr. Michael Clarke, associate director of the stem cell institute at Stanford University, who in 2003 published the first study showing how adult stem cells replenish themselves. If opponents of embryonic stem cell research object on moral grounds, "I'm willing to live with that," Clarke said, though he disagrees. But, he said, "I'm not willing to live with statements that are misleading." Dr. Markus Grompe, director of the stem cell center at the Oregon Health and Science University, said there is "no factual basis to compare the promise" of adult stem cells and cells taken from embryos. White House spokesman Ken Lisaius said yesterday he could not provide the name of a stem cell researcher who shares Rove's views on the superior promise of adult stem cells.


2. Way to go with Polosi! From Thinkprogress:

In addition, the U.S. government initially demanded that evacuees pay for their ride out of the country; the White House and State Department to backed off that policy last night after pressure from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and others.


3. Gonzo will be good as gone from the Gerbial Administration. From Thinkprogress:

At a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday, Gonzales testified that President Bush personally blocked a probe by the OPR, the agency responsible for investigating attorney misconduct. Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA), chair of the committee, was confused, being that this matter was "highly classified, very important, [and] many other lawyers in the Justice Department had clearance," and wondered "Why not OPR?" In response, Gonzalez said "the President of the United States makes the decision because this is such an important program," indicating that it was Bush's choice to obstruct the investigation.

4. From Thinkprogress:


"Former Time Inc. Editor-in-Chief Norman Pearlstine is to join elite private equity firm the Carlyle Group as a senior advisor," indicating "greater involvement by Carlyle in deals involving publishing and media."
This certainly tells you who is in charge with the media!

And:

A new Government Accountability Office report found that because of “poor training, lax oversight and rampant confusion,” the “Homeland Security Department wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars last year on iPods, dog booties, beer-making equipment and designer jackets.”

On a side noite: the Gerbil will be speaking at the NAACP Convention on Thursday. He skipped Julian Bond's speech that I posted. The Gerbil will ceetainly panhandled African-Americans for votes and brownie points! Can't wait to hear what Julian Bonds says!

Bush Bars Media From Stem Cell Veto

Moments ago at the White House press conference, Tony Snow announced that no press would be allowed at the ceremony:
SNOW: The president will, however, before he delivers remarks this afternoon, veto the Castle bill.
Here’s how it works, because I know a lot of you have had questions. There will be no photographers, no ceremony. What the president will do is, in his office, he will sign a veto message, he will hand it to a clerk, who will convey it to a clerk of the House, and then you go through the formalities of announcing a message from the president, and at some point the House will vote on the veto.
QUESTION: Is there a reason why he’s not having photographers in, at least?
SNOW: Because he doesn’t feel it’s appropriate. He’s signing a veto.

RE: Embryonic stem cell research

The science and research continues unabated in all European countries, just as an example. The Bushco's through KarlRover are lying sacks of shit. The good news is that the Rapturers are the only ones listening.

The science will continue, however the U.S. scientific community will be held hostage to a political process.

The European Union voted in 2003 to fully support embryonic stem cell research. The Bushcos have no idea how stem cells work, embryonic or adult. They are simply idiots. And they prove it every day.

The "real" problem:

With his veto the president has now reaffirmed a policy that never made any sense, garnered no scientific support to speak of, was abandoned by both houses of Congress and the leaders of his own party and, most importantly, got no traction with those most in need of the benefits of the research — patients and their families.

The president has now told doctors, researchers and patients to drop dead. Science policy in the Bush administration is best made in the White House, not by scientists and not by Congress.

My own comment: the arrogance of this morally bankrupt Administration is absolutely mind-blowing. If it wasn't so sad, it would be funny to watch this mental midget in his latest ethically challenged explanation for his latest stupid move.

I believe all speeches sound end with "and Karl said so - neener, neener, neener".
