Afraid so, Karl...

White House Lashes Out - Limp Rebuttal

The White House is lashing out at a new report which says convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his associates had far more extensive contacts with the White House than President Bush's staff ever acknowledged.

Outside his home in Washington, D.C., Karl Rove commented exclusively to ABCNews on his dealings with Jack Abramoff.

In answer to inquiry on whether he had accepted gifts from Abramoff, Rove simply replied, "afraid not."

The report from the Republican-led House Government Affairs Committee stated that Abramoff had as many as 485 contacts with the White House, and prime among his lobbying targets was former White House political director Ken Mehlman, and Bush's adviser Karl Rove.

Of those 485 contacts, 345 were described as meetings or other in-person contacts; 71 were described as phone conversations and 69 were e-mail exchanges. <more>

Oh, Oh! My. my my... The Gerbil Adminstration is suffering from PMS (Post Mental Syndrome).. The Gerbil is throwing a tantrum. His lollypop has been taken away. I'm crushed! For those of you who had a huge vein in the forehead about this corrupted Administration for 5 years, you are now seeing the crumbling of the WH and the gang that can't shoot straight. Everything that the WH have touched and destroyed in this country is coming back to them in full circle. You reap what you sow as the bible says.

Does Rupert Murdoch still own MySpace.com? If so, this is a perfect example of playing both sides of the a war like game. Parents, know what your teens are doing.
It might take scaring the hell out of your kid in graphic terms.

News is reporting the pedophile pervert shooter at the Denver school got the girls' names off myspace. (They shouldn't blame the victims either.) Who knows if he is one of the many mind-controlled time bombs used to create chaos, havoc, divide, conquer this nation. Are the people suppose to beg 'father' government for help resulting in a policed state--when things might have been manipulated for generations?

Tell your kids to boycott myspace and evil Murdoch.

Look what 'father' government did after 9/11 when the nation was in a trama state from the endless replay of jets hitting, towers falling. See W. on the trash pile--vowing to get the evil-doers? He should have been a pre-owned car salesman. We've gotten a rotten lemon. Wake up for the future of your children.

According to www.sourcewatch.org, the Greenbergs were and are connected to the Bush Familia via their Miami-based law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, a 1,350-lawyer, full-service international firm. Here are a few connects . . .

1) G-T represented George W. Bush in the Bush-Gore 2000 Florida election vote recount.

2) They personally represent Florida Governor Jeb Bush.

3) They hired son of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on Election Day 2000 -- after which Justice Scalia cast one of the 5 to 4 deciding votes that placed Bush in the White House.

4) They partially funded/sponsored a delegation to Israel by House-Senate Armed Services Committee members and government contractors to witness and be briefed on interrogations resistance procedures and torture techniques.

5) The firm has prominent administrative positions in Massachusetts 9/11 Fund, which also involves Bush family banking house Brown Brothers Harriman (the same BBH involved with Prescott Bush’s bankrolling the Nazis in World War II).

6) Traurig Greenberg works with 9-11 victims on planning their US government “hushmail/bribery estates.” That is, to receive the money, the victim’s family must sign an agreement never to sue the government for any reason. Victim-wife Ellen Mariani is currently being legally harassed for not signing and for holding the Bush government’s feet to the fire.

7) Bush still owes the Greenberg Traurig firm nearly $1 million for work done by dozens of lawyers and paralegals, leaving questions why a Republican candidate would hire a Democratic lawyer from a Democratic firm. See Greenberg Traurig link above for more scandals.

There are just so many places I've seen that name Greenberg. Hmmm, must keep looking.

And what of Greenspan, he turned out to be a crook too, no?

Bad news for the neocon zionists!!!

John Ashcroft taken to court: Judge rules State Secrets priveledge null and void

Now we'll hear all about that lovely ANKARA PARTY who owns Greenberg Traurig, the 9-11 commission, and was part of the AIG Insurance scam which torched the twin towers.....

:-D

As for Karl Rove, Biloxi tell me with a straight face that Karl didn't know Jack.

Hell they were lovers weren't they!

"The House Government Reform Committee has released hundreds of new emails from Jack Abramoff's lobbying firm pertaining to his and his associates' contacts with Administration officials.

We're scouring them now, and here's a good one. In an email exchange subject-lined "were you able to whack mccain's wife yet?" Ralph Reed and Jack Abramoff discuss derailing the nomination of a woman named Angela Williams to an Interior post.

Williams was up for head of the Office of Insular Affairs in the Department of the Interior, which has authority over decisions affecting the Northern Mariana Islands, an Abramoff client.

With the White House's help, Abramoff's effort was successful. Ralph Reed emailed Abramoff, "talked to rove about this and I think I killed it." You can see the exchange here."

Did that involve a lucrative contract cut to MARC GROSSMAN also Rove?

You stupid little bitch, the gifts and favors you all took is catching up now big boy!!!

You should have chose a different strategy than party over country........ Traitors never come out unscathed. And you Karl Rove are an insidious traitor, who got involved lock step and barrel with the ankara party

Its time to put the kibosh on this graft parade!!!!!!
