A New Partnership Binds Old Republican Rivals
By JIM RUTENBERG and ADAM NAGOURNEY

After years of competitive and often contentious dealings, President Bush and Senator John McCain of Arizona are building a deepening if impersonal relationship that is serving the political needs of both men.

Given their history of intense rivalry and sometimes personally bitter combat, their newfound partnership is seen by some Republicans as born more of political calculation than personal evolution. Either way, it could prove valuable to Mr. McCain in his efforts to win the Republican presidential nomination in 2008 by sending a signal to Mr. Bush's conservative base and fund-raising network that, at a minimum, the White House will not stand in the Arizonan's way.

Asked if she would recant her "bomb the New York Times" remark by Alan Colmes during her appearance last Thursday night on Fox News, Coulter said she stood by her comment.

"No, I think the Timothy McVeigh line was merely prescient after the New York Times has leapt beyond -- beyond nonsense straight into treason, last week," Coulter said.

Coulter was referring to what she called "the latest of a long list of formerly top-secret government anti-terrorism operations that have been revealed by the Times," noting that "last week the paper printed the details of a government program tracking terrorists' financial transactions that has already led to the capture of major terrorists and their handmaidens in the U.S."

An angry Colmes shot back with sarcasm: "This is great humor. This belongs on 'Saturday Night Live.' It belongs on 'The Daily Show.'"

Despite their upset over violence talk, neither Colmes or E&P have yet to express outrage when left-leaning figures called for the killing of prominent Republicans, including:

# During the 2000 election, "The Late Show with Craig Kilborn" showed footage of George Bush while the words "Snipers Wanted" was superimposed.

# Actor Alec Baldwin appeared on "Late Night With Conan O’Brien" and called for Republican Congressman Henry Hyde and his family to be murdered. Baldwin said: "I’m thinking to myself if we were in other countries, we would all, right now, all of us together ... would go down to Washington and we would stone Henry Hyde to death! We would stone him to death! Wait! ... Shut up! No shut up! I’m not finished. We would stone Henry Hyde to death, and we would go to their homes and we’d kill their wives and their children. We would kill their families."

# Al Franken told Matt Lauer on NBC’s "Today” show that Karl Rove and Lewis Libby should be "executed." The comment drew a laugh from Lauer. Franken's comments drew no criticism from the major media, including NBC News.

CC- Very disturbing and that is the name of their game...when I was in Crawford, TX last summer with the Cindy Sheehan "Camp Casey" there was an incident of a military mom being interviewed by a "reporter"-while being destracted, another "reporter" asked her 6 year old his name and address and took his picture.

He had just finished kindergarten and was happy to recite those things... He proudly told his mom "I did an interview too!" We questioned him and could not find the guy who took his picture-the one who interviewed the mother was gone too. There were about 500 people around at that time.

I got the impression it was done to intimidate from speaking out against the war. Considering the long Bushworld record of doing so.

Spy Agency Sought U.S. Call Records Before 9/11, Lawyers Say
June 30 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. National Security Agency asked AT&T Inc. to help it set up a domestic call monitoring site seven months before the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, lawyers claimed June 23 in court papers filed in New York federal court.
The allegation is part of a court filing adding AT&T, the nation's largest telephone company, as a defendant in a breach of privacy case filed earlier this month on behalf of Verizon Communications Inc. and BellSouth Corp. customers. The suit alleges that the three carriers, the NSA and President George W. Bush violated the Telecommunications Act of 1934 and the U.S. Constitution, and seeks money damages.
``The Bush Administration asserted this became necessary after 9/11,'' plaintiff's lawyer Carl Mayer said in a telephone interview. ``This undermines that assertion.''
The lawsuit is related to an alleged NSA program to record and store data on calls placed by subscribers. More than 30 suits have been filed over claims that the carriers, the three biggest U.S. telephone companies, violated the privacy rights of their customers by cooperating with the NSA in an effort to track alleged terrorists.
``The U.S. Department of Justice has stated that AT&T may neither confirm nor deny AT&T's participation in the alleged NSA program because doing so would cause `exceptionally grave harm to national security' and would violate both civil and criminal statutes,'' AT&T spokesman Dave Pacholczyk said in an e-mail.
U.S. Department of Justice spokesman Charles Miller and NSA spokesman Don Weber declined to comment.
Pioneer Groundbreaker
The NSA initiative, code-named ``Pioneer Groundbreaker,'' asked AT&T unit AT&T Solutions to build exclusively for NSA use a network operations center which duplicated AT&T's Bedminster, New Jersey facility, the court papers claimed. That plan was abandoned in favor of the NSA acquiring the monitoring technology itself, plaintiffs' lawyers Bruce Afran said.
The NSA says on its Web site that in June 2000, the agency was seeking bids for a project to ``modernize and improve its information technology infrastructure.'' The plan, which included the privatization of its ``non-mission related'' systems support, was said to be part of Project Groundbreaker.
Mayer said the Pioneer project is ``a different component'' of that initiative.
Mayer and Afran said an unnamed former employee of the AT&T unit provided them with evidence that the NSA approached the carrier with the proposed plan. Afran said he has seen the worker's log book and independently confirmed the source's participation in the project. He declined to identify the employee.
Stop Suit
On June 9, U.S. District Court Judge P. Kevin Castel in New York stopped the lawsuit from moving forward while the Federal Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation in Washington rules on a U.S. request to assign all related telephone records lawsuits to a single judge.
Robert Varettoni, a spokesman for Verizon, said he was unaware of the allegations against AT&T and declined to comment.
Earlier this week, he issued a statement on behalf of the company that Verizon had not been asked by the NSA to provide customer phone records from either its hard-wired or wireless networks. Verizon also said that it couldn't confirm or deny ``whether it has any relationship to the classified NSA program.''
Mayer's lawsuit was filed following a May 11 USA Today report that the U.S. government was using the NSA to monitor domestic telephone calls. Earlier today, USA Today said it couldn't confirm its contention that BellSouth or Verizon had contracts with the NSA to provide a database of domestic customer phone call records.
Jeff Battcher, a spokesman for Atlanta-based BellSouth, said that vindicated the company.
``We never turned over any records to the NSA,'' he said in a telephone interview. ``We've been clear all along that they've never contacted us. Nobody in our company has ever had any contact with the NSA.''
The case is McMurray v. Verizon Communications Inc., 06cv3650, in the Southern District of New York.

Aw-Too bad troll

Rumsfeld subpoenaed over Abu Ghraib

WASHINGTON — A Congressional committee subpoenaed Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on Friday at the request of U.S. Rep. Christopher Shays.

Shays, R-4, sought the subpoena after the Pentagon refused to answer questions regarding allegations that an Army whistleblower faced retaliation for discussing abuses at the Abu Ghraib prison.

Shays, chairman of the House Government Reform subcommittee on national security, is investigating allegations made by Army Spec. Samuel Provance that his attempts to provide information to investigators about prison abuses were rebuffed and that he then was retaliated against for providing unclassified information to the media.

"The bottom line is it's critical that our oversight inquiries be taken seriously by executive branch departments and that we get timely access to the information we need to do our job," Shays said.

"Today we are demanding that the Department of Defense provide information that is critical to our investigation."

In March, Shays and Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., the ranking Democrat on the committee, sent a letter to Rumsfeld seeking information related to testimony Provance provided the subcommittee a month earlier.

The letter went unanswered.

This is very interesting from Rawstory.com about Seymour Hersch's latest (7/3/06)article in the New Yorker about Iran plans:

'Inside the Pentagon, senior commanders are increasingly challenging the President’s plans for Iran, active-duty and retired officers and officials tell Seymour Hersh in Tuesday's New Yorker.

"The generals and admirals have told the Administration that the bombing campaign will probably not succeed in destroying Iran’s nuclear program. They have also warned that an attack could lead to serious economic, political, and military consequences for the United States."...

... senior military official told me, “Even if we knew where the Iranian enriched uranium was—and we don’t—we don’t know where world opinion would stand. The issue is whether it’s a clear and present danger. If you’re a military planner, you try to weigh options. What is the capability of the Iranian response, and the likelihood of a punitive response—like cutting off oil shipments? What would that cost us?” Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and his senior aides “really think they can do this on the cheap, and they underestimate the capability of the adversary,” he said.'

Yale Accounting Practices Scrutinized



Associated Press

July 3 2006, 12:38 PM EDT

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Federal authorities are investigating how Yale accounts for millions of dollars in government research grants, school officials said Monday.

Yale received three subpoenas last week from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Defense Department and National Science Foundation seeking grant documents. Authorities also have been interviewing university employees about accounting issues.

In an e-mail to faculty and staff on Friday, Yale President Richard Levin urged employees to cooperate with investigators.

"Regardless of the outcome of the current investigation, we must get all our processes right and make sure that we are good stewards of the funds entrusted to us by the federal government," Levin said in a statement released Monday. "We know that we have more work to do."

The school has acknowledged it must improve its accounting process. A report by the inspector general of the Department of Health and Human Services noted in February that university procedures were not always followed or were inadequate.

The school has hired a consulting group to speed up accounting improvements.

Yale, like most large research universities, relies heavily on government grants to pay for scientific research.

S-Q,

Here is some bit information with Enron ties McCain/Lieberman/Rove and others. Yeah, the Gropinator has ties to Enron. That is why he was put into to office and Gray Davis had to be ousted out as Governor.. Arnold will get his... He will be terminated as Governor. The Californians will take care of that!

Here is the some info:

"We're all tainted by the millions and millions of dollars that were contributed by Enron executives," John McCain — just the man you'd expect to be up in arms about this sort of thing — told CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday. McCain then acknowledged receiving $9,500 from Enron in two campaigns.

Of course Enron's tentacles aren't just about the Republicans — Enron wrote checks to Senate Energy Committee Chairman Jeff Bingaman and energy-state centrist John Breaux, among others — and they aren't just about political cash. Bush Administration officials with other financial ties to Enron include former stockholder Karl Rove, former advisory board members Larry Lindsey and Robert Zoellick, former lobbyist Marc Racicot and former executive Thomas White Jr. (he's Secretary of the Army). And Robert Rubin, the Democrats' economic ombudsman — but also a big shot at Enron-exposed Citigroup — is on the hook for making his own help-me call to Treasury in November.

And maybe we'll discover that the whole bunch, from Bush to Lay to Breaux to Lieberman, is as dirty as the air in Houston, which wouldn't be all that surprising."


http://www.time.com/time/business/article/0,8599,193907,00.html


And:

"One official on the Cheney energy task force, Lawrence Lindsay, served on an Enron advisory board in 2000, and Bush political adviser Karl Rove sold stock in the company in June.
Lindsay received $50,000 from Enron, according to his financial disclosure form.
Rove owned $68,000 worth of Enron stock when he spoke to Lay about a prospective appointee to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission."

Zombie Soldiers:

“This War Sucks. I Would Have Rather Stayed Dead”

The pentagon informed the press today of their latest program that will solve the military man power problem for good.

They told reporters this morning that the first all undead infantry unit has already had great success in the combat zone.

“This platoon of walking dead was created using soldiers that have already been killed in Iraq using a sophisticated combination of scientific machines and voodoo magic.” claimed the program designer and mad scientist Dr. Cheney.

The Dark Necromancer Rumsfeld said that the zombies were nearly indestructible, can operate on no sleep and have few personal hygiene concerns.

When pressed if they could be killed by removing their heads Rummy stated that it was “a classified voodoo secret.”

Cheney wanted to make it clear that suicide or death in combat would no longer be the easy way out of military service.

“We aren’t getting enough out of these men and women who signed contracts for eight year commitments,” the evil doctor informed journalists.

There have been talks about digging up former service members who have died without fulfilling their enlistment obligations and reanimating them.

CENTCOM was hoping that these new soldiers would be the answer to a plummeting morale problem. However, it seems that not even magic can raise the spirits of our deployed personnel.

One zombie who was interviewed after attempting to go AWOL said to a zombie interpreter “This war sucks. I would have rather stayed dead.”

We asked a few still living soldiers, who share a forward operating base with this new platoon, what they thought of these zombies.

Private Snuffy explained that “They keep to themselves and can pull guard duty every shift.” But there seem to be mixed feelings as Specialist Smith told us “These guys creep me out.

They are always eating brains in the chow hall, that’s just gross,” although one alive sergeant who tried the brains said that he prefers them to MREs.

No matter if you approve of these undead warriors or not it, seems that we are going to have to get used to them, as zombie soldiers are here to stay.

This is just my opinion, but I see a very scary prospect with our Iran Excellent Adventure.

Our military is sapped and we have NO draft. Bush was supposed to send over 6,000 Nat'l Guard guys to the border but could only FIND 350 to send...the rest are all in his meatgrinder called Iraq or Afghanistan which is heating up like crazy.

We also will be forced to take North Korea and Kim il Jong into consideration particularly since he is ALSO a maniac and nutjob (birds of a feather).

We are a strong and wealthy country, but we are not the World police. We are bankrupting our Treasury, our Economy is stagnant as is our job market (when Bush was inaugurated the stock market stood at 11,700 for example). We have virtually eliminated the middle class, which is good for the military because those will be the ONLY job available soon.

Bush seems thrilled to be sending young men and women into a hamburger grinder....it's like a black evil game he is playing, only it's real and it bleeds RED. But as long as he's just killing soldiers and not his own children, it doesn't matter.

Bush does NOT care about the soldiers...they are simply fodder for his ambitions. Or as was so eloquently stated, "just a number".

Lieberman and McCain want even MORE of this?

elees,

Thanks for passing along the article. I went to National Review. So, I now know what the Gerbil told Fitz from that 70 minute interview on June 24, 2004:

"Bush also told federal prosecutors during his June 24, 2004, interview in the Oval Office that he had directed Cheney, as part of that broader effort, to disclose highly classified intelligence information that would not only defend his administration but also discredit Wilson, the sources said.

But Bush told investigators that he was unaware that Cheney had directed I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, the vice president's chief of staff, to covertly leak the classified information to the media instead of releasing it to the public after undergoing the formal governmental declassification processes.
Bush also said during his interview with prosecutors that he had never directed anyone to disclose the identity of then-covert CIA officer Valerie Plame, Wilson's wife. Bush said he had no information that Cheney had disclosed Plame's identity or directed anyone else to do so."


And I certainly don't believe for a second that the Gerbil didn't know anything about it! The Gerbil had an interest in the Wilson issue since Wilson could have jeopardize his blueprint to invade Iraq!

Now are we to believe that Bush sits in the chair and others run the govenment. Well then Cheney is the President who orders the actions of the White House. Or is this to protect the President at all cost. If either is true Bush is the dumbist person and world leaders are really laughing at the US.

Jackie,

I will exploring about the latest about the Gerbil and his 70 minute interview in the next article.. But, you hhave to read John Dean's interview when he talks about Cheney's power in the WH as well as Bush.. But, Cheney is basically the co-President.. Bush is just playing an actor role as the President!

Report: Bush ordered Cheney to use classified info to discredit Wilson

RAW STORY
Published: Monday July 3, 2006

Bush ordered Cheney

3:59 PM  
Blogger Special Prosecutor Biloxi said...

Folks,

I have done some digging about the Executive Order 12958 for both Clinton and the Gerbil. And I found some major difference that people are not aware of. This explains why Cheney has so much power in the WH for executive privilege. It is a bit disturbing of the abusive power in the WH!

Here is the information:

April 17,2005:

Clinton’s EXECUTIVE ORDER 12958

Sec. 1.4. Classification Authority. (a) The authority to classify information originally may be exercised only by:
(1) the President;
(2) agency heads and officials designated by the President in the Federal Register; or
(3) United States Government officials delegated this authority pursuant to paragraph



March 25, 2003:

BUSH’S EXECUTIVE ORDER 13292

Sec. 1.3. Classification Authority. (a) The authority to classify information originally may be exercised only by:
(1) the President and, in the performance of executive duties, the Vice President;
(2) agency heads and officials designated by the President in the Federal Register; and
(3) United States Government officials delegated this authority pursuant to paragraph (c) of this section.

And what is amazing about the release of the Gerbil's revision of the Executive Order 13292 on March 25, 2003 is that 14 days prior to his altering the executive power to himself and Cheney is this meeting spearheaded by Cheney on March 9, 2003:

On or before March 9, 2003: The CIA and State Department officials, Dick Cheney, Scooter Libby, Stephen Hadley, Karl Rove, and John Hannah attended a meeting at the Vice President's office chaired by Cheney. According to the CIA official in that first meeting, "the vice president was obsessed with Wilson. He called him an 'asshole,' a son-of--bitch. He took his comments very personally. He wanted us to do everything in our power to destroy his reputation and he wanted to be kept up to date about the progress."

There is a lot more to the Gerbil's story that he was "unaware about it."

Waterflake and SBP, Nice work.

Did you see this?

Bush Directed Cheney To Counter War Critic

President Bush told the special prosecutor in the CIA leak case that he directed Vice President Dick Cheney to personally lead an effort to counter allegations made by former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV that his administration had misrepresented intelligence information to make the case to go to war with Iraq, according to people familiar with the president's statement.


Bush told prosecutors he directed Cheney to disclose classified information that would not only defend his administration but also discredit Wilson.



Advertisement Advertisement

Bush also told federal prosecutors during his June 24, 2004, interview in the Oval Office that he had directed Cheney, as part of that broader effort, to disclose highly classified intelligence information that would not only defend his administration but also discredit Wilson, the sources said.

But Bush told investigators that he was unaware that Cheney had directed I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, the vice president's chief of staff, to covertly leak the classified information to the media instead of releasing it to the public after undergoing the formal governmental declassification processe

Poor troll, its nearly Independence Day...King George's men got used to everyone having rights too-though obviously they never got over it;-)

Waterflake,

That may be closer to the truth than fantasy...

...A scene from Tolkein's Lord of the Rings, where the corrupted wizard Saruman fashions his monstrous Uruk-Hai to wage a relentless, remorseless war for dominion? No; unfortunately it's a very real scheme now being pursued by the Pentagon, whose dope wizards and gene splicers are working on the creation of the "Extended Performance War Fighter," the Daily Telegraph and Christian Science Monitor report.

Pentagon dark lord Donald Rumsfeld is shoveling billions of tax dollars into the research furnaces of federal laboratories and private universities across the land in the wide-ranging effort to spawn "super soldiers," fired by drugs and electromagnetic "brain zaps" to fight without ceasing for days on end. The work is being directed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)--yes, the same outfit now laboring under convicted terrorist-conspirator John Poindexter to build the "Total Information Awareness" network that will allow the government to monitor the electronic records and communications of every citizen.

The DARPA "war fighter enhancement" programs--an acceleration of bipartisan biotinkering that's been going on for years--will involve injecting young men and women with hormonal, neurological and genetic concoctions; implanting microchips and electrodes in their bodies to control their internal organs and brain functions; and plying them with drugs that deaden some of their normal human tendencies: the need for sleep, the fear of death, the reluctance to kill their fellow human beings.

The research is "very aggressive and wide open," says Admiral Stephen Baker of the Center for Defense Information. Indeed, the U.S. Special Operations Command envisions the creation of "iron bodied and iron willed personnel" who can "resist the mental and physiological effects of sleep deprivation" while relying on "ergogenic substances" to "manage" the "environmental and mentally induced stress" of the battlefield. Their bodies juiced, their brains swaddled in Prozacian haze, the enhanced warfighters can churn relentlessly, remorselessly toward dominion.

Dr. Walt Menninger said it pains him to see all the damage vandals have done.

“It's always distressing to see vandalism,” he said. “It's sad, but it's life and things come and go, in various ways.”

The property has remained vacant since the Menninger Clinic closed its Topeka operation in 2003 and moved to Houston.

“Buildings will eventually crumble, or whatever, but that institution I think, is solidly situated,” he said.

Menninger said it was important for his mission to carry on, but he also has a deep respect for the building.

“And, certainly have hopes that it will remain a significant landmark in our community,” he said.

But, Menninger said the building's in bad shape and needs a lot of work.

“At the time that we were moving out of it, it had tremendous deferred maintenance,” he said. “It's going to cost millions of dollars to fix this building up.”

And, now it will cost even more after vandals went on their spree.

“There is another owner of the building now and it's his challenge to somehow protect it,” he said.

The new owners are upset by the vandalism and said there was significant damage inside the building, as well.

They've increase security measures and police are helping them out.

“We are monitoring the area. We do routine patrols, anyway, but we are increasing our patrols in the area,” said Kristi Pankratz, Topeka Police.

The light on the front porch still shines but the doors are boarded up. Now, property owners are working to get a handle on the situation.

Police said they have had reports of kids being in the area who may be responsible. But, they're still investigating and ask if you have information on the vandalism to call police.
***********

They just showed this on the Topeka News. It is the former Menninger Foundation, I missed the name that they called the empty school. Can someone please help look, something is strange about this....the vandals really tore the place up.

I seen this while googling Menninger.

I discovered the work of Sherman Skolnick in May of this year, just before he passed away. I can no longer tolerate the MSM. One fact among many he discovered is that America was betrayed in the 2000 election by the All-American companies of Disney and Coca-Cola. Secret funds, provided by these companies, were used to purchase the Bush/Gore decision. The five Supreme Court Judges that ruled in favor of "Dumbfuck Dubya" were corrupt pawns of the Mickey Mouse/Coca-Cola/Daddy Bush Mafia. What would our Independence Day celebration be like if the MSM found the "courage" to report the unvarnished TRUTH to the PEOPLE?

Dear Friends and Relatives:
I have the distinguished honor of being on the
committee to raise $5,000,000 for a monument of George W. Bush. We
originally wanted to put him on Mt. Rushmore until we discovered there was not
enough room for two more faces.

We then decided to erect a statue of George in the
Washington, D. C. Hall Of Fame. We were in a quandary as to where the
statue should be placed. It was not proper to place it beside the
statue of George Washington, who never told a lie, or beside Richard
Nixon, who never told the truth, since George could never tell the
difference.

We finally decided to place it beside Christopher
Columbus, the greatest Republican of them all. He left not knowing
where he was going, and when he got there he did not know where he was. He
returned not knowing where he had been, decimated the well-being of the
majority of the population while he was there, and did it all on
someone else's money.

Thank you.

P. S. The Committee has raised $1.35 so far

Gee, so much for free speech at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Check out this snippet, from the "Chronicle of Higher Education" for July 3rd:

"Wisconsin Provost Will 'Review' Teaching of Instructor Who Calls the 9/11 Attacks an 'Inside Job'
By JOHN GRAVOIS


The provost of the University of Wisconsin at Madison announced last week that he would conduct a "review" of the teaching of an instructor at the university who believes that the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, were orchestrated by the U.S. government.

The provost's announcement came amid calls from state legislators to fire the instructor, Kevin Barrett, after he discussed his views on a local conservative radio talk show."

The teacher did not approve of the "spectacle" Cindy Sheehan was doing in Crawford and made it known from beginning of school year. Child was sick alot for unknown reasons. Not one illness since leaving classroom six months ago. Not many before that three month time in this teachers class . Principal began sitting in on class regulary, unknown to student's family.
The other school personnel were made aware of the potential threat and were protective.

the the men and women of this administration are like gambling addicts. They keep putting our young men and women, our financial resources, and our standing in the world on the table....making the same bet each and every day that "staying the course" is going to win. Each and every day the answer has the same ending, only with more young people dead or wounded, more financial burden for our children, and more loss of standing in the world for the continued incompetence shown in the conduct of this war that should never have been.

But Happy 230th birthday to those of us who can see through the smoke and mirrors. I am convinced that we should concentrate on placing responsibility for the continuance of this monstrosity on those who continue to say "stay the course"....instead of those that are sayig "we should look at other options".

Before everyone falls off the deep end believing this one and a new conspiracy theory starts, remember she is someone who has not seen him in a really long time and it was speculation on her part. Now that she said something like that, though, I am sure some curious reporters will go digging.

One last thing, pray for our astronauts today. Someone is bent on sending up that Space Shuttle today despite a crack in the foam.

It is too bad we are spending so much money on the Iraq war. Just imagine what could have been done with NASA and science education with all that money. Education is really not valued enough by too many people. There are too many people who think we should have a country full of military bullies, not a country full of well-educated 'nerds' who can solve the world's problems using their brains. Understanding America is really easy--look no further than the school playground.

Sure, we already knew during the whole hanging chad thing in Florida that there was hanky panky. But, had Al Gore the NERD been valued more, then the election would not have been so close that some bad people could have rigged it. Rigging elections can come out successful only if the election is close. In other countries, when the election was more obviously rigged by someone who was clearly going to lose, the people rise up and the bad guy resigns.

Back to NASA: NASA was used as a case study in government bad management--there were scientists who tried to warn others about potential problems with the foam long before the last one blew up. But, that message was not heard clearly, and we had a tragedy. Someone was talking to the hand and the hand was not listening. And, some of our spy agency people tried to give warnings before 9/11, Iraq intel, etc. that went ignored by the higher ups, too.

I am still skeptical about some of the conspiracy theories but I am totally convinced there is an epidemic of people at the top of our government being arrogant, bullies (especially Rumsfeld), very poor listeners, and they will do whatever they want because they are like spoiled children (Bush). Who needs elaborate and complicated conspiracy theories when talking to those people is like talking to the hand?

Here is the NYT CIA unit closing story:

link

in I hope an easier-to-use format. My interpretation of what is going on there based on what is in that article is different. When people become too narrowly focused, then they start to lose sight of the big picture and if that starts to happen, then something needs to change. Also, look at when that happened, it was in the past, not after Zarqawi was killed. And lastly, they are correct by saying that there are groups all over the place, and that Al Qaeda is not hierarchical. That is the big picture. There are lots of groups now inspired by him who should be considered a threat (of course, not Miami 7 wannabies. I am not 100% sure if they could find Chicago and the Sears Tower).

But, just in case, I recommend giving your elected officials a little jingle again, telling them to keep the pressure on nailing that guy.

What to the American slave is your Fourth of July?

What to the American slave is your Fourth of July? I answer, a day that reveals to him more than all other days of the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mock; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are to him mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy - a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation of the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States at this very hour.

Go search where you will, roam through all the monarchies and despotisms of the Old World, travel through South America, search out every abuse and when you have found the last, lay your facts by the side of the everyday practices of this nation, and you will say with me that, for revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival.

Happy 4th of July to all! What a glorious day to reflect on the independence that we have and the sacrifices that the Founding Fathers had to risk their lives to sign and pledge the Declaration of Independence for all of us today to have those same freedoms outlined in that document!

"For having lived long, I have experienced many instances of being obliged, by better information or fuller consideration, to change opinions, even on important subjects, which I once thought right but found to be otherwise."

- Benjamin Franklin



Benjamin Franklin:The Example




Being a good American on the other 364 days of the year is another matter. There aren't many established definitions for what a "good American" is supposed to say and do ... or, more accurately, there are far too many. Support the President, or not. Support the Iraq occupation, or not. Worship God, or don't. Spin the radio across the AM talk-show dial and you'll find a ready answer to the question of who and what represents a good American every other time a voice comes through the speakers.
It is better, perhaps, to nail down a specific example of a good American on this day. Since this is the Fourth, and since being both of patriotic mien and historical mind is expected, the appropriate example is best plucked from that gathering of revolutionary minds who got this whole thing going 230 years ago. Each can provide a portion of any definition of a good American, but there is one above all who accurately represents the entirety of the ideal.
Benjamin Franklin was born in Boston 300 years ago this past January. He is esteemed as perhaps the greatest of our Founding Fathers, and is the only man to have his signature on the three central documents of the republic: the Declaration of Independence, the Treaty of Paris and the Constitution. His work as a diplomat for the colonies in Paris is regarded as perhaps the most important reason why Britain lost the war, for he was the man who brought France in on our side when the chips were down.

So what is a good American? If Benjamin Franklin is to be the example, then a good American is someone brave enough to risk his life for his beliefs. A good American is an explorer of boundaries, of limits, and of possibilities. A good American seeks ideas not only to confirm his beliefs, but to risk the possibility of discovering information that shakes those beliefs to their foundations. A good American knows when to work, and knows when to have fun, and knows that the one serves and validates the other. A good American is someone who thinks.

That is what I've been wondering too about the shuttle. I've been secretly hoping it would keep raining in Florida and it would not be able to fly...since they don't seem to care enough to fix it. Bush scares me and seems to be up to something, then you read about Russia and other countries on high alert.

On the news they were harping about the billions it costs for space but yet what is the war costing each day? Again, all this media on the shuttle...makes one think Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld are up to something.

Fools blindly believe liars.

Folks,

The new Treasury secretary hasn't taken his new position yet. Loook how much Paulson made from his company:

The incoming Treasury secretary, Henry M. Paulson Jr., was awarded an $18.7 million cash bonus for half a year of work as the chief executive of the Goldman Sachs Group, the company said yesterday.
In its quarterly report, Goldman said the compensation committee of its board approved the payment on June 29 in recognition of Mr. Paulson's leadership for the six months ended in May, when profit doubled to $4.79 billion.


It is all about business!

Personally, I'm not in a mood for celebration - yet! As a matter of fact, I have a hard time understanding what people are celebrating on this day under the present circumstances. It would make more sense to me if everybody held up their firework celebrations as a protest against this administration to show the world that we do care and demand change.

Russia is on high alert and will be until long after the G-8 meeting in St. Pete.

Russia has every reason to be on high alert, almost none of it has anything to do with Bush.

Not only should the Space Shuttle be fixed properly, we should have had a whole new program developing new things from at least 15 years ago. Other countries are giving us a good technological spanking with all the goodies they provided for the international space station.

Please! Get our kids back into studying math, sciences, and engineering!! China and India are already giving our kids an educational spanking. It is not a stereotype--without Chinese and Indian students, our universities would not have enough students to keep math, science, and engineering programs running.

This is our responsibility. We have to tell school boards to give our kids the best education possible. We need to be willing to cough up the property taxes to keep those schools running, but yet remain vigilant to make sure that money is spent wisely. This takes a lot of work, but that is what it means to live in a democracy, by the people, for the people.

The Constitution says "We, the People. . ." The Declaration of Independence is very strong with:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

The signers of it took the Right of the People and they altered and abolished that government.

Voice Morphing which is also referred to as voice transformation and voice conversion is a technique to modify a source speaker's speech utterance to sound as if it was spoken by a target speaker. There are many applications which may benefit from this sort of technology. For example, a TTS system with voice morphing technology integrated can produce many different voices. In cases where the speaker identity plays a key role, such as dubbing movies and TV-shows, the availability of high quality voice morphing technology will be very valuable allowing the appropriate voice to be generated (maybe in different languages) without the original actors being present. (snip)

Double of bin Laden in that one video and voice morphing probably means that the rumors are true, bin Laden has been dead for years.

W. is suppose to bring out his double again for another round of laughs on some honors progam on TV, forget the name. haha. NOT.

I feel your frustration about what is happening with the current circumstances. But, I am sorry but Americans need to separate the country and the man (Gerbil). The President of the United States is not America! This country has forgotten what sacrfices that the Founding Father had to risk in order to establish the Declaration of Independence and what that document said. That is the true meaning of 4th of July: freedom! And the Declaration of Independence should not only be read for this holiday but for all 364 days of the year!

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Tin Man--I'm leaning toward spoiled brat arrogance in our current leaders--conspiracy theories are not needed with those qualities. Those would just get in the way of a good old temper tantrum. It is looking like Bush and Cheney 'allegedly' had a temper tantrum with Wilson's article in the NYT.

That is very scary that it seems SPB and I were digging up the same quote from the Declaration of Independence about the same time. I'm going to run and hide now but before I go, check out what a bunch of college students put together:

SPB: I know that Americans are good people but the President represents the people, especially to the outside world. The separation is hard to make because the wars are REAL, our freedom is being taken away at this very moment, etc., unless we do something about it soon.

And I have been very active in my area in relation to politics and i followup and follow through with my elected officials and the ones that are running for office. And I do discuss with other people some of the issues and concerns regarding this country. Some people have tunnel vision or denial. But, I did say on previous postings that it is the people who separate themselves from the masses that will get things done. It is very hard to try to pull one when you can run with a 100! I work with the people who are willing to do something not the ones that keep saying that "there is nothing we can do." That is why the youth are the one that will change this country around. I hate to say it. A majority of Americans rather be entertained than educated! And when stuff happend to them, then they are the ones who start questioning. For people that are going to the fireworks or picnics, people need to start having discussions with one another about their country rather than what is on T.V. Just talk! For me, I talk about the economy, gas prices, or major issues that are happening to people. I just want to see where people's heads are. And many of them have their heads in the sand for sure. Purely denial. But, the few people who are concerned about this country and willing to do something about it are the ones that I focus on.

night owl--

I agree with you..the mismanagement and corruption in this country could have funded the space program along with helping students. Couple of mine getting engineering degrees or beyond. ;)

They remember Bush playing dumb on that student aid question from a college student last year. I'm sure about now, millions do.

Wow, night owl. Great petition. Thank you, I signed, commented and sent it on to a few people.

In 2 days, it will be GWB's 60th B-Day. Greg Palast said there are 19 names on the Vietnam Wall that share the same birthdate as our Resident. Wonder how they would have celebrated their 60th B-Day? They didn't have a "Poppy" to pull strings or go AWOL. Wonder if one of those 19 men has a grandson or daughter in Iraq? Wonder if GWB even knows there are 19 men that shared his birthdate that didn't come home on the Wall? Wonder if he would even care?

Happy 4th of July everyone. This is a day to reflect on how this country started and where we're at now. The media is pushing the propaganda of this invasion and using the troops to do it. America's know this now. News that the office that was looking for Bin Liden is closed. Just as Mrs. Zarqawi said her husband was killed as part of a deal with the US so that the US wouldn't look for Bin Liden. Now we know why Bush said he doesn't think of about Bin Liden. I wonder how the 9/11 families think of this. As for our troops I know first hand they know about Bush and his lies. In some ways they comments are worse then some of the things said on this blog. Our troops know they have been played and their lives are put at risk for lies told by our govenment. Now I have a shirt sent to me from Afgan military base it reads two f---en Brokeback Mountain boys. Yes the picture shows Bush and Cheney. Now I don't wear it but I did ask how could that be sold at a military base I was told they were sold out and still taking orders. So all the propaganda being spread around by some bloggers and the media don't worry our troops show what they think. I was shocked the shirts were sold in Afgan at a military base. So much for the support for Bush by military. Oh note that all those that go on TV or paper and give support for the war are paid bonus for their work. Money can buy some people. Al know's what I mean and I hope he's getting as much as possible before the money give away bank closes.

Anon at 3:50pm,

You don't need to apologize to me. I realize that all of us bloggers and American people have a deep concern and anger toward the officials that are running this country. We are dealing with so many issues in this country that this day for some people can be a sensitive holiday for them to deal with since we have soldiers that are overseas and soldiers that are dead from a war on false pretenses. I was just pointing out that we should all remember what Independence day really stands for. And once you understand that 4th of July is really about, then you can appreciate the Founding Fathers and follow the footsteps of the Declaration of Independence. People have taken the word freedom for granted. You are right that there is a lot of work to be done in this country. and there is no time for people to bitch and moan about the President. People tend to concentrate on the urgent issues rather than important issues. I think people need to get back to basics and know who they are, where they are going, and what we intend to be. I think for me to remember Ben Franklin as an example to what it is to be an American is important for this day as well as 364 days. But, we get so rapped up in our own problems and not take the time to be greatful for what we have. Why do I say that? Because someone told me long time ago to read the Declaration of Independence and remember what the Founding Fathers have sacrifice for and what the Declaration of Independence says and never take things for granted and understand that this country is for and by the people. We have the power but there more work to do as you said!

Happy 4th to you and the bloggers!
