No More Than He Already Is...

Cheney will be vulnerable if he testifies
Act of "loyalty" will carry considerable risks

WASHINGTON: One witness has dominated the trial of I. Lewis Libby Jr. without even showing up in the courtroom. Day after day, the jury has heard accounts of the actions of Vice President Dick Cheney, watched as his handwritten notes were displayed on a giant screen, heard how he directed leaks to the press and ordered the White House to publicly defend Libby, his top aide and close confidante.

Now, as the defense phase of the perjury trial begins, Cheney is expected to make a historic appearance on the witness stand. It is an act of loyalty that carries considerable risk for Cheney.

If he testifies, Cheney will bring to the jurors the awesome authority of his office and could attest to Libby's character as policy adviser and family man, to his crushing workload and dedication to keeping the country safe. That could give extra heft to Libby's defense against the charge that he lied to the FBI and grand jury: that he was so occupied with important matters of state, he did not accurately remember conversations from July 2003.

But the first 10 days of testimony has already exposed some of the long-hidden workings of Cheney's extraordinary vice presidency, revealing how deeply the vice president himself was engaged during 2003 in managing public relations as the administration's case for war came under attack. <

Libby Trial Sheds Light on White House
Libby trial shines revealing light on White House attempts to sell American public on Iraq war
Trial testimony so far including eight hours of Libby's own audio-recordedd testimony to a grand jury in 2004 suggest that a White House known as disciplined was anything but that.

What has emerged, instead, is:

a vice president fixated on finding ways to debunk a former diplomat's claims that Bush misled the U.S. people in going to war and his suggestion Cheney might have played a role in suppressing contrary intelligence.

a presidential press secretary kept in the dark on Iraq policy.

top White House officials meeting daily to discuss the diplomat, former ambassador Joseph Wilson, and sometimes even his CIA-officer wife Valerie Plame.

AP might be waking up...<more>

We need an honest turthful President right away does anyone know one? Get the impeachment started ASAP for both Bush/Cheney.



Jackie, check out Ron Paul.

From what I can tell, he is a true American Patriot, and a man of integrity.

Another clue that he is a good guy:

The mainstream media is not talking about him at all.

His website is:

Which means, people, that it's up to US to publicize our candidates of choice.

Because the good ones will Not be talked about by most mainstream media.

Notice how both Cheney and Rumsfeld both were involved down to little details on everything.

Wonder if ole Tricky Dick was like that too since Cheney and Rummy cut their teeth with Nixon?

Hello everyone!

Saw MTP today. Here is a Braindead Media:

Politico’s Simon: Libby Didn’t Commit A ‘Real Crime’

Today on Meet the Press, Politico reporter Roger Simon called the case against Scooter Libby “a nutty trial that nobody except the people involved in it and the people covering it care about.” Simon said Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald indicted Libby merely because he “didn’t tell him the complete truth.”
Actually, Scooter Libby lied — under oath, to a federal grand jury. He is facing serious felony charges: obstruction of justice, making false statements to a grand jury, and perjury. But according to Simon, these aren’t “real crimes.”


Simon is definitely David Brooks' clone! Look for Simon to be on the 2007 asswipe list. Amazing. Let me give Simple Simon a lesson on perjury: Bubba Clinton LIED under oath about having oral sex with Monica. Wasn't that a media circus or better yet a waste of time, Simon? The GOP wanted a popular President who was loved by the American people and the international leader IMPEACHED! Another journalist in the backpocket of the Administration and is spreading the koolaid lovefest for Scooter!

Ron Paul is a straight shooter. Not your typical Republican. He actually started out as a Libertarian. He reminds me of the late Paul Wellstone. He has spoken out against the "Federal Reserve" and "Patriot Act". He is against the Iraq war and the war on Drugs also. I would support him. We need a leader who has the cahonas to stand up to the power structure. Decades of abuse and lies has destroyed our government.

Yes, John Evans. Ron Paul is another that doesn't get credit for being a truth teller. Americans need to get over who has the most funds, ads, flings the most mud and lies. It is the issues. Research it yourself because if you depend on the media and the candidate, you and your family lose. Your country and planet loses.

1970 - 1st Earth Day Protest - April 22nd, 1970: "On Earth Day in 1970, ... insults drove 20 million Americans to the streets in the largest public demonstrations in U.S. history. Motivated by that stunning display of grassroots power, Republicans and Democrats, working together, created the Environmental Protection Agency and passed 28 major laws over the next 10 years to protect our air, water, endangered species, wetlands, food safety, and public lands. [....] The passage of these statutes marked the return of ancient rights recognized since the dawn of civilization." [Robert F. Kennedt Jr., Crimes Against Nature, pp. 22-23] *Trivia: "The victory was short-lived. Earth Day 1970 caught polluters off guard, but over the next 30 years they mounted an increasingly sophisticated and aggressive counterattack to undermine these laws. The environmental reversals of the Bush [George W. Bush] administration are the triumphant outcome of their tree-decade campaign." [Robert F. Kennedt Jr., Crimes Against Nature, p. 23]
