Graft Attendance Record...

Abramoff? "here"
Rove? "here"
Ken? "here"
Decider? Decider?

From Roll Call:

Hundreds of contacts between top White House officials and former lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his associates "raise serious questions about the legality and actions" of those officials, according to a draft bipartisan report prepared by the House Government Reform Committee.

The 95-page report, which White House officials reviewed Wednesday evening but has yet to be formally approved by the panel, singled out two of President Bush's top lieutenants, Karl Rove and Ken Mehlman, as having been offered expensive meals and exclusive tickets to premier sporting events and concerts by Abramoff and his associates.

In total, the committee was able to document 485 contacts between White House officials and Abramoff and his lobbying team at the firm Greenberg Traurig from January 2001 to March 2004, with 82 of those contacts occurring in RoveĀ¹s office, including 10 with Rove personally. The panel also said that Abramoff billed his clients nearly $25,000 for meals and drinks with White House officials during that period.

Rove, Mehlman, and other White House officials have denied having any close relationship with Abramoff, despite the fact that Abramoff was a "Pioneer" who raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Bush's White House campaigns.

"The documents depict a much closer relationship between Mr. Abramoff and White House officials than the White House has previously acknowledged," committee staff wrote in a three-page summary that accompanied the report. Reps. Tom Davis (R-Va.) and Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), chairman and ranking member of Government Reform, this summer subpoenaed e-mails and billing records from Greenberg Traurig and other firms, including Alexander Strategy Group, which was run by one-time aides to former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas). They examined more than 14,000 pages of documents from Greenberg Traurig, including 6,600 pages of billing records and 7,700 pages of e-mail.

During the period examined by the committee, Bush administration officials repeatedly intervened on behalf of Abramoff's clients, including helping a Mississippi Indian tribe obtain $16 million in federal funds for a jail the tribe wanted to build.

Abramoff was able to block the nomination of one Interior Department official using Christian conservative Ralph Reed as a go-between with Rove, according to e-mails between Abramoff and Reed.

Well, I'll tell you what. There is enough graft from the corrupted politicans to keep Henry Waxman and entire DOJ and FBI office busy for years. When the entire truth cones out and I mean all of the truth, we will see the most corrupted Administration in this country. And whoever gets into office in 2008, that person will need Bubba's help.

Let's see if I get the URL right this time. . .

I am a few days late. For meat products without added nasty chemicals, find a Whole Foods store with
Wellshire products. There are several in the Chicago and Washington, D. C. areas. The online Wellshire ordering products are a little expensive as well as the grocery store foods, but they are a lot cheaper than a quadruple heart bypass ($100,000+) and/or chemotherapy drugs (some at $10,000 a dose).

The factual evidence indicates that our government is using and has used 3rd or possibly 4th generation hydrogen bombs domestically and internationally. The evidence for international usage is not quite as strong as the domestic usage, but when domestic usage is considered, the international usage seems inescapable. The process of exclusion based on the known facts leaves only one viable option for the destruction of the World Trade Center (WTC) buildings - a relatively pure hydrogen bomb.

Click the links. One page has something about Putin being fed up also like most Americans and other world citizens. I hope he only goes after the evil-doers.

The above is deliberate misinformation.

We have a duty to stop that in the public domain.

Hydrogen bombs were not used according to evidence.

However, there is sufficient evidence THERMITE was used to blow the towers and in fact incinerate them.

We know it was an inside job so we need to make sure we get the right facts.

I know what different metals melt at, and look like when melted. Steel/iron is what is flowing from the towers. Some debunkers have said aluminum but any metal caster will tell you this is silver color even when liquid.
Looks like some thermite was knocked from the core to the outer edge of the tower. The first tower fell a very very short time after this became evident to viewers.
Thermite doesn't account for the concrete turning to fine powder, nor steel beams ejected horizontally into Deutchebank building. Nor all of the pulverized bone fragments found on the roof and in the building. They didn't fly there on their own in a gravity collapse, but an explosion sure makes sense.
What happened to the missing soviet suitcase nukes?
Dogs can't smell thermite, it's rust and aluminum with other additives like sulfur to make the steel loose its carbon strength quickly. Carbon=diamond=hard
Carbon is added to iron to make it strong, with carbon it is known as steel.
ASTM E119 temp time curve does not show substantial weakening from an open fuel fire over the time it burned. This is what the steel was certified to. NIST has been infiltrated, and they are writing a new one for bld 7. Architectural steel is MADE to keep its strength incase of a fire, it's why you see no wood skyscrapers.
I wish i could use any petroleum fuel to do my castings, won't work.
We all know how much natural gas costs and that is what a furnace uses since it will fire to ~3000 F.
Diesel/kerosene/jetA works in my steam pressure washer burner and somehow it doesn't melt on the ground when i use it
Can you belive these guys?
Mark my words once it starts rolling we are going to have a record number of indictments.

Ok, outa touch today!......what incredible hutzpah!....these guys really thought they could blow this
corruption past the American Public and not be accountable! Sick beyond words! They profess such ideals and credentials, but are completely void of each and both!

I am immensely thankful for those who are coming forth to put the truth out there! Telling the truth in the face of much pressure to keep quiet is no different than those of our young people facing much in this "waronterror"!
