Let me get this right Ney pleaded guilty and he's still in office. Somethings wrong with that picture. Now a criminal can hold office as long as their Republican. Our jails will soon be cleared out as all those in jail will say their Republicans and get the get out of jail card. Well that's one way to win an election. Have all the criminals run the US government they are now already doing that.
I noticed that nothing is said about a UK journalist killed by the military. I thought journalist stick together. Also Bush has lost his lap poodle. The UK is leaving and most likely will not trust the Bush team again. We need Nov. in a hurry it's taking to long for me.

Fitz,

Maybe you should include the countdown for all of the future evildoers for their orange jumpsuit day! As we look forward to Abramoff, Bush's aide, Ney, and others going to prison, let's mark on the calendar October 23. That is Jeff Skilling's court day of his sentencing.

Cheers!

Rep. Bob Ney's lawyer Mark Tuohey said in court this morning during his guilty plea hearing that Ney will not be resigning from Congress immediately -- but rather "in the next few weeks."

Tuohey said the delay came because Ney had some “constituent issues he wanted to tie up” and also wanted to ease the transition for his congressional staff. Tuohey didn't offer a specific date. Ney himself did not speak during the hearing, except to say "Yes" or "No," or "I plead guilty, your honor."

The judge set Ney's sentencing for January 19th. Ney faces a maximum of ten years, but prosecutors have said that they'll recommend a sentence of 27 months.

Tuohey also asked that Ney be considered for alcohol treatment while in prison. Ney's been in an alcohol rehab facility since he pled guilty September 15.

"Ney's been in an alcohol rehab facility since he pled guilty September 15."

These GOP scandals will make one hell of a book. Hmmmm..
Chapter 1: If you get caught in any graft, just claim you have an alcoholic issues and check in a rehab!

And Foley's problem has nothing to do with alcoholism!!! These corrupted GOPs really put everyday alcoholics that checked in rehab into shame!

Rezko to miss Friday's arraignment: attorney


AP) — Antoin "Tony" Rezko, a key adviser to Gov. Rod Blagojevich who was scheduled to appear in court Friday on federal charges, will miss his arraignment because he is traveling outside the country, according to Rezko's attorney.

Hmmm. When asked to Rezko's attorney to when his client is supposed to return, he said "soon." And Rezko's attorney doesn't even know which country that Rezko is at! Well, Rezko's attorney had deaf ears yesterday when Fitz said in yesterday's press conference that if Rezko didn't show up, then there will be a warrant for Rezko as a fugitive. So, Rezko better get his ass back on a red eye jet pronto!

Bush to campaign for troubled lawmakers

WASHINGTON - Trying to help two Republicans in trouble,

President Bush will campaign next week for a congressman who admitted to having an affair and a senator accused of using racist language and keeping a Confederate flag.

The bedwetting and desperate President and the GOPs are trying to grab at straws to survive the November election. They have one foot in the grave the other on a banana peel. Their days are numbered! LOL!

From Gerbil 101: Denial!

Bush Is Said to Have No Plan if GOP Loses

Some Republican strategists are increasingly upset with what they consider the overconfidence of President Bush and his senior advisers about the midterm elections November 7–a concern aggravated by the president's news conference this week.
"They aren't even planning for if they lose," says a GOP insider who informally counsels the West Wing. If Democrats win control of the House, as many analysts expect, Republicans predict that Bush's final two years in office will be marked by multiple congressional investigations and gridlock.
"The Bush White House has had no relationship with Congress," said a Bush ally. "Beyond the Democrats, wait till they see how the Republicans–the ones that survive–treat them if they lose next month." GOP insiders are upset by Bush's seeming inability to come up with new ideas or fresh approaches. There is even a heightened sensitivity to the way Bush talks about advisers who served his father.


And when the GOP loses, they are certainly going to remember the Gerbil and his butt to kiss. And I am sure that if this situation of the GOP was reverse and this was a Democrat scandal, the Gerbil would have plans after the election.

It has been said that U.S. forces has killed reporters before, what was the reporters going to publish that the military and the Pentagon wanted to hide?

How many innocent people have been silenced to hide the truth? Of course, someones son or daughter will pay the price instead of the real culprits at the top. They are masters at manipulation and giving the illusion of clean hands.

Where is the truth, honor and dignity in that "be all you can be"?

I want to share this with all of you. I had a nice visitor on my blog last night, who so kindly offered me all of his material.

He is a well known Journalist/Photographer!

Thank you Peter! :)

Here is one of his stories & a photo. It certainly touched my heart!

Old Glory - The Truth

This photograph was taken somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean in June 2003. It was originally published on the DoD DEFEND AMERICA and AIR FORCE LINK websites in July & September 2003. Also, it was printed in the Army's SOLDIER'S MAGAZINE in November 2003 (Page 22):

Army Sgt. Osvaldo Ortiz sleeps next to the transfer case and gear of his fallen friend aboard a C-17 Globemaster III aircraft bound for Dover Air Force Base, Del. Ortiz is accompanying the remains to the base and eventually back to the fallen soldier's home in Puerto Rico.

"I hope Blair is listening," says user Nigegilb. "Sir Richard has made the call and said it how it is. Good on him. Stand by for incoming. Getting out of Iraq is essential if [Afghanistan] is going to work in the long run. God knows what will happen to Iraq, not sure it will be any worse though. He made the point that we were never invited in we kicked the door in.

"Sir Richard, I'm saluting you right now!," says Purple_Flash. "It's about time someone of your standing actually lived up the Values & Standards that we so often pay lip service to. They are what should make us a breed apart; thank you for walking the walk rather than talking the talk."

Democracy and freedom shouldn't have to have its door kicked down.

The world’s stockpiles of wheat are at their lowest level in more than a quarter century, according to the US Department of Agriculture, which on Thursday slashed its forecasts for global wheat and corn production.

The lower forecasts were largely attributable to the severe drought in Australia, where the forecast for this year’s wheat crop was cut by 8.5m tons to 11m. That is less than half of the 24m produced last year, of which about 17m went to exports.

As a result of the low Australian crop, AWB, the country’s main wheat exporter, said it would suspend exports from the country’s east coast due to the poor crop and review its export requirements.

To add to the global supply concerns, Ukraine has introduced licences and quotas on its wheat exports, effectively bringing shipments to a standstill. This has already halted Ukrainian wheat shipments of 50,000 tonnes to India. The USDA also lowered wheat output for China, Brazil and the European Union.

Remember the St. Louis company that made the "special" seeds for India? Sick sick sick.

Someone controlled all this on purpose.

Wow, this is the kind of filth represented by Republican women in Congress?

These people sure aren't doing what is best for the citizens. They are only looking out for themselves and what they skim off the taxpayers. Disgusting.

North Korea is ready to return to six-party talks on its nuclear program, a senior Russian official said in Pyongyang, as Moscow said Russia and China opposed "extreme sanctions" against North Korea.

North Korea "wishes in the nearest future to settle through negotiations the problems connected with the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsular", Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Alexeyev told Itar-Tass news agency in an interview.

The Tass report said nothing about any North Korean conditions for returning to the talks that have been stalled for nearly a year.

Alexeyev had discussions in Pyongyang with Kim Kye-gwan, North Korea's top negotiator at the talks in which the United States, China, South Korea, Japan and Russia deal jointly with North Korea.

Good news, I guess. Did anyone hear that Tony Snowjob making his comments about bratty children and a piece of candy? Could they get anyone more crass? Of course, Snow may be a good thing---he pisses people off, especially since kids are a delicate subject these days.

Country singer and ABC's Dancing With the Stars regular Sara Evans has filed for divorce from her husband of 13 years, failed GOP congressional candidate and party fundraiser Craig Schelske.

Among several salacious charges leveled at her husband, Evans asserts that he has used his computers to store pornographic pictures of himself and with other women, and to run "Craig's Lists" ads seeking "prospective sex partners." Evans also alleges that Schelske harassed her and viewed pornography in front of their three young children.

Nothing to do but shake your head.

HARTFORD, Conn. - Republican Rep. Christopher Shays, who is in a tough re-election fight, said Friday the Abu Ghraib prison abuses were more about pornography than torture.

The veteran Connecticut congressman said a National Guard unit was primarily responsible for the abuses although it was actually the 372nd Military Police Company from Cresaptown, Md., an Army Reserve unit.

"It was a National Guard unit run amok," Shays said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. "It was torture because sex abuse is torture. It was gross and despicable ... This is more about pornography than torture."

Shays sought to defuse controversy over his previous comments suggesting the Abu Ghraib abuses weren't torture but instead involved a sex ring of troops.

"Now I've seen what happened in Abu Ghraib, and Abu Ghraib was not torture," Shays said at a debate Wednesday.

"It was outrageous, outrageous involvement of National Guard troops from (Maryland) who were involved in a sex ring and they took pictures of soldiers who were naked," added Shays. "And they did other things that were just outrageous. But it wasn't torture."
