Just Like with Torture, Cheney's
Got His Teeth Sunk into Iran

So formidable a foe is Cheney that appointed dragon slayer Patrick Fitzgerald is either still girding his loins or has abandoned his quest to indict him as quixotic. In other words, counting out Cheney is premature. In fact, Robert Dreyfuss recently described him as "suddenly revived." <more>
First, I am called a "junkyard dog prosecutor," and now "dragon slayer!" I prefer a dedicated and uncorruptable prosecutor who is busily working on his Opening Statement.

Good Morning, Mr.Fitzgerald.

I'm sure you are working hard on that opening statement. Would love to hear it.

I hope the legal process catches Cheney in his lies. He's dangerous.

Ok hard working Prosecutor listen up while you were sleeping Dick Cheney ordered the following:

Bush invaded Iran last night

Yes now the Administration is invading Iran as to push them into full scale war. It's all about the oil rights in the Middle East. What would the US do if that happen to us. Well let's see how the President of Iran handles this invasion. The US has really changed in the past 6 years we're now becoming the number Axis of Evil. I noticed some feel Bush should send more troops well those same people better look for troops to be sent to Iran as that's the next country Bush will invade and try to control. Funny how people follow an idiot even when they know he's wrong and an idiot.

Now that Congress is working for a change we have raised the wage earners, some elected officials say that was wrong and some Americans say the Dems aren't doing enough. I say for all that gave a gift to a child for Christmas maybe now their parents can earn enough money to feed them for a year. As the gift can't feed the child but it gives them one moment of happiness. Some people think the gift of raiseing their parents salary is better. It warm our hearts to see a child smile with a Christmas gift we gave, while the rest of the year we never notice they are hungry.

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening folks!

TGIT!

Looking forward to hearing aobut Fitz's opening statement. Try to look appealing and give a impression to the jurors, Fitz. And let's hope that Cheney doesn't fall asleep on Pat when he cross-examines money bags.

On a side note: And as far as being called childish names such as the junkyard dog, you should know by now, Fitz, that you are damn if you do and damn if you don't in anything. You can't please everyone. You have to expect good and bad criticisms from people. And great leaders endure criticism and take it in stride. But, what I am most concern is for you to protect your attitude. You know who you are and where you are going in life. So, if some nimrod talks nonsense about you, just roll that negative thought out your mind and concentrate of what is positive in your case. The negative nimrods need to get a life and bark up some other tree. They are just there to disrupt you and your tasks. Focus, focus, focus is most important in this case. That's my 2 cents.

Harry Smith is a jerk Bush kisser, and Fox is Fox. Condoleezza let thousands of people die and should be held accountable for her actions and lies. She is a disgrace and a fraud.

From Howard Dean:

Last night, George Bush plans announce that he wants to send tens of thousands more troops to Iraq.

The American people oppose it. The generals, both active-duty and retired, say that it won't help. But George Bush thinks he can do it anyway.

He's got another thing coming.

We believe the Democratic Congress must have the opportunity to review and approve the troop increase in Iraq.

Whether you agree with a policy of escalation or not, Congress's involvement is fundamental to our democratic process. The people's representatives must consent to sending troops and spending money -- particularly on something as controversial as sending tens of thousands more troops into the middle of a civil war.

Unlike the way we got into this war, America must have a real conversation about how to end it. Congress finally asserting its constitutional authority is the only way that conversation will happen.

The most effective thing you can do right now is send a letter to the editor of your local paper about escalation, and let them know that you demand a vote on any troop increase. Writing your letter to the editor is simple using our PartyBuilder advocacy tools. Just click here to get started:

http://www.democrats.org/escalation


Why should Congress have to be consulted?

Because this is a new level of engagement in Iraq, far different than anything the Congress has authorized to date.

Whatever you felt about that Iraq vote in 2002, it's impossible to deny that the situation now has deteriorated and the president's policies have continually failed. We now know that the administration's claims about WMD stockpiles and Saddam's ties to al Qaeda were false. We also that the regime we went in to depose is long gone.

We've been fighting in Iraq for longer than we fought in World War II. There is a full-blown civil war there. And Saddam is dead.

The American people, through their elected representatives, deserve a voice in the decision to send tens of thousands more troops there.

Please take a moment and use the PartyBuilder Letters to Editors tool to make your voice heard:

http://www.democrats.org/escalation

Congressional oversight may seem strange to the pundits who have gotten used to a Republican-led group that barely showed up to work and didn't take its constitutional responsibilities seriously.

But there's plenty of precedent for it.

In the 1970's Congress passed laws to stop Richard Nixon from expanding the Vietnam War into Cambodia and, later, to cap the number of personnel allowed in Vietnam in order to force the administration to wind down the war.

In the 1980's Congress required Ronald Reagan to seek explicit authorization if he planned to expand U.S. forces in Lebanon and capped the number of troops on permanent duty elsewhere in the world.

Congress has the constitutional duty to represent the people, and the new Democratic Congress is prepared to live up to that responsibility.

Please write a letter to your local paper now demanding a debate on Bush's escalation plan:

http://www.democrats.org/escalation

I opposed this war from the beginning. But no matter how you felt then, it's clear that the president's policy has failed.

Last year's elections were a referendum on Iraq, and the president lost.

Ignoring the lessons of history by increasing troop levels is not an answer to the problems in Iraq. Nor is blaming the military for the President's own mistakes an answer, or ignoring the bipartisan Baker-Hamilton Commission recommendations, including an emphasis on diplomacy. And ignoring the will of the American people is certainly not an answer.

The people made their voices heard, and if the president isn't going to listen, the Democratic Congress will.

Democrats in Congress heard the people loud and clear in 2006. In 2007, they are ready to act.

Let's join them.

Governor Howard Dean, M.D.

Hmmm.. opening statement to Libby trial. I wonder what Fitz will say..

A sample excerpt:

Ladies and gentleman, of the jury, I am Special Prosecutor Bill Biloxi. Here on the left is my co-counsel, Brand X. I. Lewis Scooter Libby is charged with five counts: two counts of obstruction of justice, two counts to lying to the investigators, and one count of making false statements. A law was broken in this case, ladies and gentleman. The government will take you into the world of the former White House chief of staff, I. Lewis Libby that will lead up to the events of the leaking of the CIA covert’s identity in the New York Times article on July 14, 2003, classified information, ladies and gentlemen, to a chain of reporters. You will see that defendant, I. Lewis Libby was in the right state of mind, knew confidential information about Valerie Wilson and willfully leak classified information of a CIA covert, Valerie Wilson, information that is not known to the public or the reporters. This is not a case of misrecollection or recalling information. This is about lies and misleading the investigators. This case will show the defendant, I. Lewis Libby, worked to pass along and get the information out Valerie Wilson’s covert identity to as many reporters as he can to silence Ms. Wilson’s husband, former Ambassador Joe Wilson, from his criticisms concerning his finding in Niger. Mr. Libby violated National Security and duty of trust placed in him. Mr. Libby violated National Security by telling lie after lie after lie to the investigators.

And of course,I know Fitz will have a great opening statement.

I checked out (and bookmarked) the 'chosen' blogs for the Libby trial. Seems to me O'Connors (Media is a Plural) and Cox's (Words in Edgewise) don't post very often (weekly or even monthly). I wonder how they chose those guys to cover the trial? I sure hope they post more when the trial is going on. Their threads seem a bit sterile too. I also noticed the only one to post comments was Outside the Beltway, and they showed at the most 4 comments.

Patriot Girl:

My take on the two bloggers that will cover Irve's trial: Roy O’ Connor and the OTB freelancer. Notice that Robert Cox are buddies with these two bloggers. So, Cox made sure that his buddies got into cover the trial for "public awareness of court proceedings." The only problem is that I went to both blogs. They both cover various topics going on the country but neither one of them covered the entire Libby case and CIA Leak case from the beginning to end. So, readers on their blog may not grasp their knowledge of this case and the players involved in the case or their take on both prosecution and defense strategies since they didn't followed the case from the beginning. FDL is the only blogsite that has followed this case from the beginning. And they have Christy to thanks who worked with Fitz and is an attorney who understand this case, procedures of the law, and knows Fitz's work for the longest. FDL has a lot more creditabilty than those two conservative bloggers. Let's not forget Marcy Wheeler of Last Hurrah and Swopes from Needlenose. But, I am glad that the bloggers are given a chance to shine and make the T.V. media and journalists look like idiots. That's my 2 cents.

Bloggers' Credentials Boosted With Seats at the Libby Trial

By Alan Sipress
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, January 11, 2007; Page D01

When the trial of Vice President Cheney's former chief of staff on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice opens next week, scores of journalists are expected to throng the federal courtroom in Washington, far too many for the 100 seats set aside for the media.

But for the first time in a federal court, two of these seats will be reserved for bloggers.

After two years of negotiations with judicial officials across the country, the Media Bloggers Association, a nonpartisan group with about 1,000 members working to extend the powers of the press to bloggers, has won credentials to rotate among his members.

The trial of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, the highest-ranking Bush administration official to face criminal charges, could "catalyze" the association's efforts to win respect and access for bloggers in federal and state courthouses, said Robert Cox, the association's president.

The Architect of Mr. Bush's Plan

One of the key architects of President Bush's disastrous Iraq war policy was responsible for writing the president's new plan calling for an increase in US troops in the region.
By relying on the recommendations of neoconservative scholar Frederick Kagan, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, on what steps the White House should take to address the civil war between Sunnis and Shiites in Iraq, President Bush has once again ignored the advice of career military officials and even some Republican lawmakers - many of whom in recent weeks have urged Bush to resist implementing a policy that would result in escalating the war - and instead has chosen to rely on the proposals drafted by hawkish, think-tank intellectuals that could very well backfire and end up embroiling the United States in an even bloodier conflict.

Two weeks later, Kagan published "Choosing Victory: A Plan for Success in Iraq," the AEI white paper that recycled his public statements and columns from 2005 that were highly critical of Rumsfeld's post-war planning. Like the January 28, 2005, letter he sent to Congress and the Senate, the 47-page report called for sending more troops into the region to combat the violence between Sunnis and Shiites - which ultimately would ensure the war would continue to rage for at least two years.
Ultimately, President Bush agreed with Kagan, and used the key recommendations of his study as the foundation for his new Iraq policy - a policy that even some staunch pro-war Republicans have distanced themselves from.

According to email corespondence with Jason, the information from Rove is true according to his sources. These sources were the same sources for many of his articles that he written about the CIA leak. But, as Jason pointed out, something happened in the weeks about Rove that changed Fitz's mind. And he hope Fitz will answer that question for Jason. Jason got a lot of backlash and at that time he was in a total depression. But, I still believe in those sealed document is Rove. And my bet is the other sealed document is Cheney. And this depends on what Cheney says on the stand.. But, I think that the sealed document is probably Fitz' ace to play.. But, he has to see how each person plays out on the stand.

Here is more information about the bloggers who were chosen to cover the Libby trial:


Blogging access will be restricted to members of the Media Blogging Association, a trade group that provides legal advice and promotes increased access for its 1,000 members.

Cox said the association has about 12 bloggers set to cover the trial -- some with a liberal perspective and some with a conservative one.

Bloggers likely will file reports throughout the day from an overflow room that will be set up with wireless Internet service, although like other media outlets they will be prohibited from transmitting video or audio of the trial.

Blogger Jason Leopold, writing for the left-leaning blog truthout.org, reported last May that White House top political adviser Karl Rove had been indicted as part of the investigation and planned to resign.

Rove's lawyer said no indictment had been served, and several weeks later said Rove was cleared by Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald.

Leopold is not a member of the Media Bloggers Association, Cox said.

Instead of giving speeches on new strategies for victory, and sending off another contingent of hapless Americans into the fires of Iraq, the president would have been wiser to declare the American mission is over, and presented a plan for the gradual withdrawal of U.S. forces.

Update on Tim Johnson:

Statement from the Office of Senator Johnson
Thursday, January 11, 2007
Washington, DC— The office of U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD) released the following:

Senator Tim Johnson has been transferred to the in-patient rehabilitation unit at The George Washington University Hospital where he will be participating in aggressive therapy. "Yesterday, Senator Johnson underwent an MRI which showed that his speech centers were spared of injury. This is confirmed by the fact that he is following commands and has started to say words," said Vivek Deshmukh, MD, neurosurgeon.

Doctors say it is common for there to be a delay in speech returning as the blood is reabsorbed after the initial hemorrhage.

Johnson is currently being weaned off the tracheostomy tube that remains in his neck.

"The fact that Tim is beginning to use words is remarkable as is his strength and determination. He even maintains his sense of humor when I share emails about his grandsons' adventures," said Barb Johnson, wife of Senator Tim Johnson.

Quote from an intoxicated Scott Cassidy during arrest:

"Cassidy was quoted in police reports as saying, “I will own you Joliet hillbillies!”

Too bad you can't watch Cook County Board meetings, it is the best Reality TV on. They can really solve their budget problems by getting on Network TV and selling themselves as Reality TV.

Never a dull moment with politicians in Cook County/Chicago, just when you think it's illegal they have found a legal loophole.

Folks, this is great article by John Dean, former White House chief of staff to Nixon

And here is something that Dean says:

Suppose the 110th Congress does find itself being stonewalled by Bush and Cheney's claims of executive privilege. Does it then have no recourse?

Absolutely not: There is still a powerful option. Congress can take the issue to the public, and make a public case that Bush and Cheney are obstructing the legitimate operations of Congress by withholding vital information - thus ratcheting up the political pressure on the Administration. If Congress' evidence is strong enough, the Administration, though it may keep on withholding information, will incur a high cost for its unreasonable secrecy - and the Republicans may well pay that cost at the ballot box in 2008.

Hi JB's

I hope everyone is ok. I watched some of the way forward stuff on the telly, but it allmost made me hurl. George was looking pretty despondent and rightfully so. It would be worth no amount of money to be in his shoes in these days. He asked for it though, when he told Micky Herkowitz that he wanted to be the War President in 1999, and that he wanted to go to war with Iraq. Every president who was somebody, was famous because he was a presiden’t during a war. yep…Dubya got his wish. All it took was a bunch loonies from the PNAC, and the sacrifice of the World Trade Center.

And…Here he is, a mentally challenged and incompetent excuse for a human bean, trying to be the commander in chief of the most powerful country on the planet, and with a bunch of advisers and script writers, that could very well be from another part of the universe. If you don’t believe me take a good look at Paul Wolfowitz and Condoleeza Rice.

As everybody knows…Allmost every government position is filled with a member or affiliate of the PNAC. Anyhoo Dubya can’t speak worth a damn, so they had to rig him up with a few high tech devices so it would look like he could. He avoids press conferences like the plague, because that requires thought, even when using his hearing device. There are too many times that he doesn’t understand the word, and sometimes he obviously waits too long between sentences.

Anyway, it’s just about over for Dubya. If we can’t get him impeached he will probably lose it anyway. It’s really a sad affair, but I have zero sympathy for him. He is in the wrong place at the wrong time because he wanted to be there, and the whole planet is in danger because of what was done for oil, money, and power.

Even if he loses, his friends say, he doesn't lose. He'll just change the score, or change the rules, or make his opponent play until he can beat him. "If you were playing basketball and you were playing to 11 and he was down, you went to 15," says Hannah, now a Dallas insurance executive. "If he wasn't winning, he would quit. He would just walk off.... It's what we called Bush Effort: If I don't like the game, I take my ball and go home. Very few people can get away with that." So why could George get away with it? "He was just too easygoing and too pleasant."

Maybe it's just because she is so flippant about all these people dying, like she was about the airplanes flying into buildings when she knew it already and did nothing. She should resign like the rest of the Bushco. losers. Shoe shop or play the piano, didn't bother her before when people were drowning or getting blown up or shot.

Condi is an oreo cookie. One minute Condi acts black when her man, Bush, needs the black vote or needs the blacks in his corner in his own agenda and the next minute she treats her own kind like they have AIDS and she can't recall that she is black. She just brush off her family photos and display that for photo-ops and hides the Bush family photos in the closet. and she did show her true colors when she went shoe shopping and didn't give a rat's ass when her own people were drowning and dying in Hurricane Katrina. Condi, you can't deny your race anytime the wind blows.

If President Bush decided that all blacks in this country are being shipping back to Africa and Condi is no use to him or the Bush family, her incompetent butt is on that boat too, Farragamo shoes and all!
