Public Servants Of The Month...

"Congressman Ney and his co-conspirators engaged in a long-term pattern of defrauding the public of his unbiased, honest services as an elected official," Alice Fisher, assistant attorney general, said in a statement. "Congressman Ney admits that he corruptly solicited and accepted a stream of benefits, valued at tens of thousands of dollars, in exchange for agreement to perform, and performing, a series of official acts. He also admitted deceiving the public and the U.S. House of Representatives about his actions."

FBI Assistant Director Chip Burrus, head of the Criminal Investigative Division, put the Ney plea deal in context, stressing that it is just part of a much wider federal crackdown on corruption. "The FBI is deeply committed to tackling corruption anywhere we find it—this is our promise to the American people, and corruption is the FBI's top criminal priority," he said. "We have more than 600 agents and dozens of analysts working more than 2200 investigations in all 56 field offices right now. Nationwide indictments are up 40 percent. In the past year alone, we have had over 950 arrests, 700 convictions, over 300 million dollars in restitution and over 15 million dollars in fines. The FBI participates in over 30 public corruption task forces and over 100 public corruption working groups." With that kind of tough talk, no one on Capitol Hill remotely linked to Abramoff will be breathing easy for quite some time. <more>

I tip my hat to Alice and Chip. Well done, you make us proud!

Fitz!

Good work! But tell me please is Conrad Burns next? I guess it really doesn't matter, but I really want that old corrupt fart to go down before November!

Well, there is more than enough public corruption to keep those agents busy. If all those politicians would stop being dirty, then maybe the FBI could spend more time looking for Osama . . .

We'll see how many busts they do in these cases, with that many field offices it shouldn't be too hard...

I feel sorry for the honest agents working their tails off and getting shut down in their investigations, hopefully that will no longer happen.

The American public has grown weary of all corruption and cover-ups. Kudos to these agents working hard to uncover these crimes. Something is wrong when work like that piles up so much.

Pity those on the wrong end of honesty and integrity when the American Public as a whole finally wakes up completely. It seems to be closer by the day.

Madam Alice Fisher and Sir Chip Burrus, and author of this blog,

How about President Bush (approximately monthly) periodically "secret Administration Subpoenas" SWIFT Corporation that allowed International Telex Transfer Monitoring Agency officials stole over US$26 million dollars from the United States Citizen?

For more information regard the case, please visit http://www.wdcic.org/NewsRelease.asp.

Because President Bush’s periodically secret subpoenas upon SWIFT Corporation allowed the group of criminals intercepted the United States citizen telex transfer fund, demanded for US$13,123.00 VAT charges, and stole the entirely full amount of US$26,013,123.00.

PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE do something about this case to bring justice to the victim.

No kidding...that makes me sick to know this happened soooo many times.

Camp Casey pictures today on my blog

There was a young man there, an exemplary soldier who did one tour in Iraq. He is only 24 and made sargent in military intel within 2 1/2 years. (82nd Airborne) With the support of his parents, he is now AWOL-not going back to Iraq. He will face his court marshal in two weeks.

He believes the war is illegal and very immoral. He would prefer jail time as would his parents. At least they can visit there...
I told him I support what he is doing and was proud of him for taking a stand.

A dashing retired Navy commander & Vietnam vet told him the same thing...that sure meant a lot to that young man to hear it from a guy like that.

So much corruption and graft. Many, many thanks to those public servants who stay after those dirty birds - a growing chorus of singing dirty birds ratting each other out. It's glorious!

And to anon @ 12:54, many people who have not voted in a long time, or maybe ever, will be voting in the next two elections. Too many people angry about what we've done in Iraq, about the graft and waste, about the erosion of our way of life. Check these out:

and

http://www.firedoglake.com/2006/09/16/thats-the-way-ah-ha-a-ha-we-like-it/ (Watch the utube video clip)

And,many people read these blogs. And the people who read and write them are very likely to be more activist, much more likely to vote.

The more convinced we are that positive change is going to happen, the more likely it is that we will make that change happen. Let's go for it.

Now this is a pathetic joke.....

Will someone indict him already?

Or was Kkkarl already indicted and just does not want to resign yet......

Only the real kool-aid brigade can buy this crap!! What a manipulative con to use real 9-11 families, and victims for political reasons. These guys all need a trip to the city nursing home!!!

Top o' the mornin' JBs and FBs....Kudos to Alice Fisher and Chip Burros, as well as all the supporting DOJ lawyers that are helping the country to once again half some self respect. I know that their jobs are to go after graft and corruption and that's what they're paid for, but look at Congress, they're paid for doing the job they were elected to do, and many fall short of that responsibility and duty. Somehow, the prevailing thoughts are once they are elected the money pot is there for access for personal greed and power. That's why so many of them feel that the first item on the "to do list" on the first day of each term is to get elected again so that the faucet won't be turned off. The sad part is that if public service in elected offices was done "pro bono", many would find a way to have slush funds they could access after they left office.

I wish I could think of a better way, but if someone is looking for the pot at the end of the rainbow, I'm sure he/she would find a way around laws, rules, etc. to feather
his/her own nest.

I guess the best is vote NOVEMBER 7TH for the person you feel fits honor, dignity and respect for the Constitution!

It's going to be a wonderful day here in MI. Hope every has the same!

Your comment on this one please Patrick.


I went to the linked article to read it all. He was doing fine until this line:

"Federal prosecutors of high integrity such as Patrick Fitzgerald will always listen, investigate and get to the bottom of all the lies."

Really?

Fitzgerald is looking more and more like part of the problem than part of the solution to me. He has dragged out the Plame Grand Juries long enough for the White House skunks to do damage control and offer up Armitage to fall on his sword -for the good of the team. None of the real players in that debacle, in the chimp's cabinet or the media, will ever see an indictment and trial.

I am starting to think that Fitzgerald is maybe the last person in the world that we would want in charge of a real 911 Grand Jury.

I never cared much for Sen. Lindsay Graham but I must say, he earned my respect today. Arlen Specter on the other hand, more and more Americans have got his number and are looking back into his past.

Human beings make mistakes but it is the brutal patterns that give savages away. They fool no one anymore.

Not only the politicans but the person who is supposed to lead by example and served the public: the Gerbil! It is one who supposed to RUN the country! I really look for people who integrity and the Gerbil has none of it. The FBI and CIA's strings are being pulled by the Gerbil Administration.

Good work for the two people profiled as the public servants of the month. IMHO, everyday folks who made a difference in this country who don't have a title or position are public servants and heroes to me in this country.

nexus,

I know your concerns regarding this case and so on......

Just keep track of what happens, because the chess game is far from over....

You have to look at it from many perspectives....Fitz has played this game many times....
Blackmail is a tough stand sometimes....we don't know if Fitz had any realy choice in covering up the old links to 1993 WTC...

Madsen puts in his own 2 cents as well.....but all I can say is watch the show...

They forced him to file "Sealed Vs Sealed", but that is only because these goons blackmailed him again in relation to something happened in the past....

Think about those times you are left with no other choice...Fitz probably still feels awful about 1993, but what can they do now?

You got a group of criminal thugs in the whitehouse, so its time for the next stage of the game....Its chess, not checkers...Rove is still under sealed indictment with more to come....
They know every move these guys make considering how long the fight has been brewing.

In the end, the Castle will check the King!

I think I will keep my low paying jobs. I am not selling my soul to the devil by asking Gov. Blagojevich (BaloneyBitch is easier to spell) of Illinois for a high-paying job in exchange for $1,500 in 'gift' money for his little kid's birthday. He so better be next, put him right next to George Ryan and Mayor Daley's friends in the pokey.

Illinois, an equal opportunity employer for graft, Republicans and Democrats alike.

Night Owl:

Please don't think that people should just settle for less in a job so that they don't sell their souls to the devils. People should want to greater things in life of whatever they want. But, it doesn't matter what class you are in. If your intergrity can be brought, then that decision is what you have to live with forever.. But, the people who have being brought by the Gerbil or caught up in the corruption, have to look at themselves in the mirror and have sleepness night of the decision that they make. At least, you can look at yourselves in the mirror everyday and say that you earn your money. The GOP crooks can't do that. They may be living the hog right now but they will eventually get caught. Remember, all of us have to answer to one person for our decisions and actions: God. and the Gerbil and his base and GOP politicans can't take their money with them when they leave this earth!

I have a feeling that Gov. Blagojevich will next on the list to get caught.. The corrupted GOP have a tendency to tempt the people with money because money to them is power. Money is what we need to survive, pay our bills, and live a lifestyle. But, the they allow the money to control them rather than the reverse. According to people, I heard money is the root of all evil but it is only how you see money. At least you know in your heart that you earned your money.. And you are smart to learn and understand that you can find another vehicle that will create a lifestyle for you honestly than just simply allowing slime like Gov. Blagojevich to control you in money and title.

Night Owl:

Here is a tip for you:

1. Emails and comments can be interpret very diffrent from the person who write the comment as well as the person who is reading it..

Your comment didn't sound sarcastic to me. It is sounded serious. That is why S-Q adds LOL at the end of her comments to me to let me know that she is being sacrastic.. So, alot of times when you make comment, I am not sure whether you are being serious or being sacrastic. So, i cannot read you at times

2. Give me sign that you not serious of your comments. Maybe your sign will help next time.
