Good Morning Fitzie and JBs!

Great work Fitzie and Team America!

S-Q and T,

Thank you for the Valentine's Day cards! I saw them this morning -- very sweet and put a smile on my face! I wish I had been more organized this year to send out Valentines, but it's been crazy busy at home and work...I'm lucky to check in here once in awhile...

Fitzie,

I think Wells never intended to put Scooter or Shooter on the stand...just a bunch of BS to maniupulate the process and the judge...I'm proud of Judge Reggie for sticking to his guns and trying to find the truth not play games! I'm really looking forward to your closing statement...I'm betting on a Knock Out for Team America!!!

Did anyone else read that post on FDL last night taken from MSNBC's David Schuster? The jury yesterday entered the courtroom wearing red tees with white hearts on them, 13 of the 14 that is. The old woman art curator was a holdout. And the 13 then thanked the judge and other court officials for having treated them so nicely. This prompted all the commentors on FDL into reading the tea leaves. There certainly have been a lot of bizarre elements to this trial. I thought this tee shirt thing was another one of your parodies, Fitz.

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening folks!

TGIT!

I am looking forward to the closing arguments especially from the defense. I am confident that Fitzgerald will give an excellent closing argument since he gave a very simple and cut and dry opening statement with the focus of the timeline. I know that in his closing argument that he will re-emphasize some of his key points from his opening statement. This is to get the jurors refresh to what Fitz said in his opening statements, focus on the evidence and testimonies that Fitz presented to the jurors, and a strong compelling closing argument to prove why Libby should be found guilty of perjury beyond the reasonable doubt.

The US Department of Justice leaked its own talking points to Justice Department beat reporters Wednesday night -- apparently by accident, RAW STORY can reveal.

The talking points, intended for public affairs spokespersons, were sent to a Justice Department reporter Wednesday evening at 6:54pm. The reporter asked not to be named.

Notably, the talking points leaked stories that several major newspapers were going to report -- to reporters at other papers.

Just posted.

Ms Pelosi did say that she was setting up a blog since she stated that she was reaching out to bloggers. The MSM didn't share that part to the public. She has conference call with bloggers to get feedback from them. I think it is very smart move for Ms. Pelosi to be on the cutting edge of techonology and mastermind with bloggers.

And where is the Gerbil's blog? Oh, I am sorry. He doesn't read the "emails" but uses "the google" for maps! Could you imagine of the Albert Camus-in-chief had a blog? Who can interpret gerbilspeak?

Heads up on peanut butter...

ConAgra Foods is recalling all Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter jars with a product code that begins with "2111". That comes after federal officials say they believe it is linked to a 39-state salmonella outbreak.

But ConAgra officials are trying to better understand why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identified peanut butter as the source of the problem. ConAgra says all the company's tests of peanut butter and the plant that produced it have been negative.

"Libby knows more than his lawyers do about the next stage of his legal proceedings. Libby helped obtain the sleaziest pardon that Bill Clinton issued on his way out of the White House. Clinton pardoned Libby's client, the fugitive billionaire Marc Rich, over the unanimous objections of the White House staff. When Cheney hand-delivers Libby's pardon application to President Bush, who is going to object?" Huffpo piece.

Did Clinton ever explain why he chose to pardon such a criminal?

If you got kids in a dorm or elsewhere that should be made aware about the PB mess, better call or email them. My son said he eats straight out of the jar for a snack.

I wish he wouldn't eat it at all because about 7 or so years ago, there were scads of kids and adults breaking out in severe hives or became allergic to peanuts. (Probably something that was sprayed on crops if the truth was known.) He's fine now but it was awful. He looked like someone beat the hell out of from all the welts on his body. (yes, I tell not to eat peanuts still.)

Murray Waas has new article on rawstory about Cheney/leak.

3:58 PM  
Blogger Special Prosecutor Biloxi said...

Teak:

Thanks for sharing Waas's latest. Great article. Well, this tell you who is really running the WH. It was never the Gerbil. It was Cheney. For him to call Rep. Graham in the middle of shaving for him to find out is leaking classified information and told Graham that the administration was considering ending all cooperation with the joint inquiry by the Senate and House Intelligence committees on the government's failure to predict and prevent the September 11 attacks, this tell you how powerful Cheney was at the time. I know the public wants Bush impeach but the person that people who be really focused on is Cheney. Bush is just puppet in office. And Cheney is really Bush's brain not Rove.

4:17 PM  
Blogger patriot girl said...

Hello Biloximan,

I don't know about that. I think Gerbil is not as naive as Cheney would like him to be. Bush IS the president, and however he made it to his post HE is responsible for the goings-on of his office and the state of our country.

He and Cheney should both be impeached. After all, the Gerbil is the the one wanting to go to war with Iran now, on false intelligence most likely. And he is the one giving all these stupid scare speeches to the American public, and over-riding the Congress.

Bush can and could have surround himself with good intel and people who know what they are doing. I agree think that Cheney is the mastermind, but don't you think it has been a team effort?

SPB:

Yep, that Cheney is one evildoer that needs to be impeached! We need to impeach him first and then Bush. They both need to go.. along with Rice!

4:57 PM  
Blogger Special Prosecutor Biloxi said...

Patriot girl:

Yes, Bush IS the President but only in title. John Dean wrote an article last year which I wrote a piece for Waterflake's website about Cheney being the co-President. But, I do belive that Poppy Bush and Cheney are more of the team but Cheney is the mastermind. You have to remember that the WH has been run like a corporate business for 6 years. And Cheney has approximately 80 + employees under him. And Cheney is involved with National Security, Iraq conracts, etc, as well as running his office as VP. I am not saying that the Gerbil is native but he doesn't have the brains to run the operation of the WH. With 3 failed businesses and his daddy always bailing him out, the Gerbil hasn't grown up. And just read and listen to many of the Gerbil comments to the media when he said that he is unaware of this or that. He is just a propped up puppet President. And yes, Cheney and Bush should be impeached. That is why Waxman is going after Cheney. Cheney is the strongest link to the WH. But, I also think that Bush's frustrations come out from the media when he doesn't get his way. That is why he feels that he can do what he wants like a spoil kid. John Dean gives a lot in depth about the mind of Cheney.

I thought this was interesting at the Libby trial:

Valentine’s Day broke their silence early.

On the last day of testimony Wednesday, the 12 jurors and two alternates came into court with a surprise: Thirteen wore red T-shirts with a white heart-shaped outline over the heart.
A retired math teacher on the jury rose and thanked U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton and other court personnel for taking care of “our safety and comfort.”
Then, pledging the jurors would adhere to their oath of impartiality, he turned to address the defendant and the lawyers and offered: “Valentine’s wishes to you all.”
The entire courtroom applauded.
Only one female juror, an art historian and former museum curator, did not wear a T-shirt.

Oh, what I was talking about Snowjob was this article. Sorry forgot to add the link.

NEW YORK Surely, at this stage, the White House would be willing to admit that conditions in Iraq following the 2003 invasion haven't gone exactly according to plan? White House Press Secretary Tony Snow was asked about this today at the daily briefing, following the release of military documents from 2002 that revealed that the U.S. expected that a token American force of 5,000 would be able to keep things under control in Iraq.

"What went wrong?" the reporter reasonably asked.

Snow replied: "I'm not sure anything went wrong."

Man, I had to go through the last part of jury instructions from FDL website.

Folks,

Here is the bottomline:

Fitz will be the first to give his closing arguments along with Peter Zeidenberg (Zeidenberg will do part of the closing). This should be interesting. Defense will be last.

Here is the schedule for Tuesday according to Walton:

Walton: 9:30am - 11:30am. (Fitz/Zeidenberg) 11:45am-12:45pm (Fitz/Zeidenberg) 1:45 - 3 :45pm to defense. 4:00 to 5:00 pm.

There you have it!

I don't believe so. Acording to FDL:

Walton: 3 hours seem sufficient. If you need more Zeidenberg will have to cut down.

Fitz: 9:30 to 11:30, is there a break. All I ask is that there are delays. If I see that there are extensive problems. My only problem would be for defense to do half of theres.

I read FDL blog. It looks like Fitz will be first in the morning. But, I am unsure if he will be forst or Zeidenberg. If so, government should go first.

"I worry about an accidental explosion rather than a planned attack that we can see coming," said Sick. "Every key person in the US administration says they are not planning an attack on Iran, but a lot of people in the administration seem to think they wouldn't mind if such a thing happened. Under such circumstances, it is always possible for accidents to take place, even engineered accidents."

Surely the innocent act of "I didn't know" won't be played by any politicians if Iran is attacked, oops. Bush has an accident.

Bush saying Afganistan, "the Wild, Wild West". Get him a horse.

Congressman Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) will say that "history and fact will not be kind to the decision-makers" during his House floor statement tonight concerning the Iraq War Resolution that will be voted on Friday, RAW STORY has learned.

"This head in the sand attitude, while politically expedient, denies reality and truth," Grijalva will say. "Rest assured that history and fact will not be kind to the decision-makers and deciders of this war."

"Nor will it be kind to a Congress that looked the other way," Grijalva will add, according to a preview of his statement leaked to RAW STORY.

Before the trial, both Cheney and Libby denied that the vice president had authorized or even known that Libby had spoken to reporters about Plame.

But at the trial, FBI agent Deborah Bond testified that Libby said in an interview with her that on July 12, 2003, Libby might have spoken to Cheney about the possibility of divulging Plame's name to reporters before he actually did so later that day.

Closing arguments will be on Tuesday, in this order, and with the times alloted by Walton

Zeindeberg (sp?) for the prosecution (3 hrs.)
Wells for the defense. (3 hrs.)
Fitz for the final. (1.5 hrs.)

Wells & Co do NOT want Fitz to have the last word on Wednesday.

Fitz is worried that unforseen objections, and break time will eat into his final rebuttal time.

On another subeject, Walton will come in tomorrow to continue working on jury instructions, even though he has no staff.

DC court staff only work 4 days a week???

Thanks, observer. I like details from the trial like that or in general. Can you imagine Gonzales in action? Hmm, has he tried a case?

On a much, much smaller scale. Kansas is facing the same things going on in Washington. Crooked AG gets voted out, Manages to somehow get the holy-rollers from now vacant county since new AG was elected -to install him as county DA. Keep in mind, illegal junk going on about abortion files Kline took and appeared on Bill O'Lielly. He lost today on the rest of files he failed to return for the NEW county. After Kline was installed by said holies of same thinking, he proceeded to fire like 10 or so attorneys that worked in that county for years and had kept the crime rates down. Lawyers filed grievances, wuss failed to show up, then the former deputy-D's filed in federal or district court. Now Ms. Melanie could help us out and bust his butt on something. Gonzales/Kline==corrupted, crooked and changing the law on how they think the law should be. Sorry.

Hmmm...

Anon at 11:22 pm:

Zeidenberg is doing a 3 hour closing arguments? If so, Fitzgerald must have had Peter Zeidenberg well prepared if he is going to present 3 hours of closed argument. And Fitz is for the final for 1 1/2 hours. And I assume that Walton gave more time to the prosecution. From Walton's schedule of closed arguments, I am assuming that the closing arguments will go way past 5 pm on Tuesday from the amount of time on both sides. Both sides better hope that can keep the attention of the jurors.

And I did hear that Walton is working tomorrow morning on jury instructions.But, the prosecution team (Zeidenberg and Fitz) need to have a strong deliverance of their closing argument. I don't know Zeidenberg's style but I am sure he will do well. And this is good exposure for him. So, it doesn't matter to me what time prosecution team presents thier closing argument as long as they nail Irve. I have no idea why the defense needs 3 hours to prsent their holes like swiss cheese defense. By the way, does the opening statement start at 9:30 am on Tuesday

From FDL..

Fitz: Main summation and rebuttal four hours. If Mr Wells is running around opening up doors, I'd like to close them. I worry about squeezing them in. It'd put pressure on me in an important case. I think between the two of us (Zeidenberg) I don't think we should artificially add a day.

Walton: If we start at 9:30, 12:00, go until 1 come back at 2, you until 3:30, govt until 5 or however long, we've got to do it.

Wells: I'll keep it to three. I'm willing to be locked into that.

Fitz: We've tried to be efficient, I don't want ot be cut short, if he goes long.
