Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on October 2nd, 2006 3:31 pm by HL

You know they are desperate when they pull out the famous Reagan trick that he used to get out of any possible trouble.

Rice: No memory of CIA warning of attack

AP
Excerpt:
Don't ask meSHANNON, Ireland – Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said she cannot recall then- CIA chief George Tenet warning her of an impending al-Qaida attack in the United States, as a new book claims he did two months before the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

“What I am quite certain of is that I would remember if I was told, as this account apparently says, that there was about to be an attack in the United States,

H.L.s Take
Whaaat?? Warning??? I don’t remember any warning??? to attack who?? The United States??? Noooo I would remember that….


New Woodward Book Says What Else? Bush Lied (Again and Again)

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on October 2nd, 2006 3:23 pm by HL

White House in crisis over ‘Iraq lies’ claims

Guardian U.K.
Excerpt:
me lie, no wayIn the TV interview Woodward accuses Bush of keeping the real situation in Iraq secret from the American public and playing down the true level of violence. ‘There’s public [information] and there’s private. But what did they do with the private? They stamp it secret. No one is supposed to know,’ he says.

His book – State of Denial – is also understood to say Tony Blair was angry at discovering that Washington was keeping key intelligence on Iraq from Britain – even classifying reports based partly on contributions from British operatives as off-limits. In some cases, British personnel flying US planes in Iraq were denied access to pilots’ manuals, the book reportedly alleges. Downing Street denied to comment last night.

Woodward’s book says that insurgent attacks in Iraq are now running at a rate of about four an hour and that officials believe the situation will get worse next year. That allegation is particularly damaging to the administration, which has staked its reputation in mid-term Congressional elections on its ability to win the war. It also flies in the face of regular Republican claims that the situation in Iraq is improving.

Video: Dan Bartlett Attempts Damage Control for Woodard’s Book

Crooks and Liars
Excerpt:
White House in Full Damage Control: White House Counselor and close Bush-confidant, Dan Bartlett, was on This Week w/ George Stephanopolous in full damage control. George touches on every significant story in the news and Bartlett had a response for each and every one: On State of Denial: Woodward was biased, came to pre-conceived conclusions and “didn’t connect his own dots”. Apparently his books are worth buying/reading when he sucks up to the administration but when it comes to being critical, he’s biased.

H.L.s Take:
Bush Lied about Iraq??? I’ll be damned.

Mark Foley Quotes

At Sacred Heart, I was taught how to be a better citizen because of their focus on discipline and moral values.

By offering an education centered on values, the faculty in Catholic schools can create an interactive setting between parents and students that is geared toward long-term healthy character and scholastic development for all enrolled children.

I have said repeatedly that in this country we track library books better than we do sex offenders.

H.L.s Take:
OK you get the idea. Stay tuned for more Republican Hyprocrisy News.


Abrahamoff Casually Mentions Rove and Iraq Invasion 7 Months Before

Posted in Main Blog (All Posts) on October 2nd, 2006 2:16 pm by HL

Bush: Jack who off ???

Abramoff Knew US Would Invade Iraq in March, 2002

Daily Kos
Excerpt:
Newly-disclosed e-mails from the Minority Chair of the House Government Reform Committee Henry Waxman provide new areas of insight into Jack Abramoff’s closeness to the Bush administration. Most shocking of all (at least of those I’ve been able to read so far) is that Abramoff off-handedly mentions “the upcoming war in Iraq.” The date–March, 2002.

Email Excerpt:
Monday, March 18, 2002 8:31 AM
Subject: RE: Sunday

I was sitting yesterday with Karl Rove, Bush’s top advisor, at the NCAA basketball game, discussing Israel when this email came in. I showed it to him. It seems that the President was very sad to have to come out negatively regarding Israel, but that they needed to mollify the Arabs for the upcoming war on Iraq

This is seven months before Congress authorized the president to go war. I give you this internal background of what the administation was up to with the unstated immensity that the Bush administration was at the time publically denying any resolved intention of invading Iraq.

H.L.s Take:
Check out the whole story, lots of damning evidence. Bush and Abrahmoff, Abrahamoff and Bush.


Its Official: Bush Now Dictator of The U.S.A.

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on October 2nd, 2006 1:50 pm by HL

A dictatorship would be a lot easier… So long as I’m the dictator. George W. Bush

Bush’s popularity is as low in this countries as Hitler, even republican politicians shun him in fear of having thier elections tainted by the smell of the half wit monkey. The people, hate him, congress hates him, YET THEY KEEP GIVING HIM MORE POWER. Why is that? what are they afraid of??? Anthrax??

Is your daughter a future detainee?

Prison Planet
Excerpt:
I decider for youBush administration has taken the position that it can detain anyone — anyone, U.S. citizens included — by, in its sole discretion, labeling that person an enemy combatant. Bush did that in the case of citizen Jose Padilla, simply asserting that he was a terrorist, and locking him up in a Navy prison in South Carolina for three years without charges. Padilla filed suit, and the Bush administration argued successfully to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit that it could hold Padilla indefinitely as an enemy combatant. It was only following Padilla’s appeal to the Supreme Court that the administration filed criminal charges against him, apparently fearful that the Supreme Court would rule in Padilla’s favor.

Are You an ‘Unlawful Combatant’? Maybe so…

Anti-War.com
Excerpt:
There has been a great deal of discussion about the Military Commissions Act of 2006 [.pdf], recently passed by both
houses
of Congress, and most
of it
has to do with the provisions allowing torture of alien detainees, that is, of non-citizens apprehended in, say,
Afghanistan
or Iraq, and
their treatment at the hands of their American captors. Senators John McCain, Lindsey
Graham
, and John Warner, all Republicans, grandstanded for weeks over the torture provisions, then capitulated. Another “Republican maverick,” Arlen Specter, zeroed in on the real issue, however, when he
said
the bill would set us back 800 years by repealing the habeas corpus protections against arbitrary arrest and jailings – and then went ahead and voted for it, anyway…

Congress has now granted the president the powers of a dictator. The rest of the story of our slide into absolutism is merely a matter of filling in the details.

H.L.s Take
As usual a few Democrats voted for this. The usual suspects Lieberman, (who I guess is still a republican until he leaves office) Landrieux, the Nelson twins, and a couple of others. You know the DINO’s. Will they continue voting for whatever Bush wants if Democrats take control of congress? Probably.


Pastors Guiding Voters to GOP

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on October 2nd, 2006 1:15 pm by HL

Remember when we were supposed to have seperation of church and state in this country?

Pastors Guiding Voters to GOP

L.A. Times
Excerpt:
Their efforts at times push legal limits on church involvement in partisan campaigns. That is by design. With control of Congress at stake Nov. 7, those guiding the movement say they owe it to God and to their own moral principles to do everything they can to keep social conservatives in power.

Preachers “ought to put their toe right on the line,” said Mathew D. Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel, a nonprofit law firm that supports conservative Christian causes…

Tax-exempt organizations, including churches, may not participate or intervene in political campaigns on behalf of any candidate. Intervention is broadly defined as “any and all activities that favor or oppose one or more candidate for public office,” according to the Internal Revenue Service.

H.L.s Take:
Think the IRS will do anything about it?? Hellll no. Government, religion, and the tax collectors, working hand in hand to control the population and make it bend to their will from day one.
