More desperate lies from a desperate lying party to try to get a few votes.

Bush to consult on changing Iraq tactics

AP
Excerpt
Bush telling one of his many liesOne of the reasons you’re seeing more casualties is the enemy is active and so are our troops, along with Iraqis,” Bush said in a brief interview with The Associated Press.

The White House said that while Bush might change tactics in Iraq, he would not change his overall strategy despite growing opposition and Republican anxiety that his policy could cost the GOP control of the House or the Senate — or both.

H.L.s Take
This is a non story if I ever heard one. “We are changing tactics, but not our strategy, which is constant warfare for evermore.

They are still stealing the vote in Ohio.

Ohio Lawsuit to Reinstate hundreds of thousands of Purged Democratic Voters to be Filed Fri or Monday

Op-Ed News
Excerpt
Ohio voting rights activist and attorney, Bob Fitrakis, says the Ohio elections may have already been won, responding to reports of massive voter purges in Democratic precincts.

Dr. Fitrakis, told OpEdNews, “Essentially, by purging these rolls, the Republicans, by shrinking the electorate, have already won in Ohio. If they can’t win, which is what the polls show among registered voters, the way to win is to use their nuclear option– to target black voters, young voters and the working poor– by purging them so they can’t vote.

Reports indicate that starting as early as shortly after the 2004 presidential elections, but particularly recently, hundreds of thousands of voters– mostly urban apartment dwellers (likely black) and students– who are primarily Democratic– were sent notifications that they would be purged from the eligible voter lists if they did not respond the letter. But, reportedly, the letter was designed to be easily overlooked, perhaps treated as junk mail. Failure to send in a response caused the voter to be removed from the voting roll.

H.L.s Take:
Too bad the democrats don’t want to be bothered with somehting as trivial and meaningless as having elections stolen from them (again)

More Homeowners Going Into Default

L.A. Times
Excerpt
The number of Californians who are significantly behind on their mortgage payments and at risk of losing their homes to foreclosure more than doubled in the three months ended Sept. 30, providing the latest evidence of trouble in the housing market, figures released Wednesday show.

Lenders sent out 26,705 default notices — the first step toward a foreclosure — during the July-to-September period, up from 12,606 during the same quarter in 2005, according to DataQuick Information Systems

H.L.s Take:
For years I wondered how the jobs market and economy went one way, (down) while the housing market went the other way (Up.) When the stock market goes down housing prices go up, and vice verca. Well the stock market is at an all time high. Of course it’s mostly millionaires that are making that money. For the people that are just trying to afford a home. Look out below.


Republican Race Bating Ads Call Black Women “Ho’s”

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on October 20th, 2006 11:28 am by HL

More from the party that just looooooves black people. They are not racists, oh no, I am for calling them a bunch of red neck crackers.

Republican Group Chides Democrats With Abortion Ads

NY Sun
Excerpt
“Black babies are terminated at triple the rate of white babies,” a female announcer in one of the ads says, as rain, thunder, and a crying infant are heard in the background. ….
“If you make a little mistake with one of your ‘hos,’ you’ll want to dispose of that problem tout suite, no questions asked,” one of the men says.
“That’s too cold. I don’t snuff my own seed,” the other replies.
“Maybe you do have a reason to vote Republican,” the first man says.

H.L.s Take:
They know they have no chance to get the vote of any person of color, so they make this ad to go after the white racist group, of which there are plenty of especially in the red states.


Pat Tillman’s Brother, Who was There, Speaks His Mind.

After Pat’s Birthday

Truthdig
Excerpt
By Kevin Tillman

Pat Tillman and his brother Kevin in AfghanistanEditor’s note: Kevin Tillman joined the Army with his brother Pat in 2002, and they served together in Iraq and Afghanistan. Pat was killed in Afghanistan on April 22, 2004. Kevin, who was discharged in 2005, has written a powerful, must-read document.

It is Pat’s birthday on November 6, and elections are the day after. It gets me thinking about a conversation I had with Pat before we joined the military. He spoke about the risks with signing the papers. How once we committed, we were at the mercy of the American leadership and the American people. How we could be thrown in a direction not of our volition. How fighting as a soldier would leave us without a voice… until we get out.

H.L.s Take
This Pat Tillman story just refuses to go away. It is symbolic of everything the Bush administration has done wrong since it took office.

Lewis Falsely Implies Mass Suspension Of Committee Investigators Was ‘Bipartisan’

Think Progress.org
Excerpt

Powerful House Appropriations Committee Chairman Jerry Lewis (R-CA) has abruptly suspended the contracts of “60 investigators who had worked for his committee rooting out fraud, waste and abuse, effective immediately.” The investigators were “brought on to handle the extraordinary level of fraud investigations facing the panel.”

Lewis is currently under federal investigation over corruption charges reportedly uncovered during the Duke Cunningham investigation. He has spent nearly $800,000 in legal fees since May.

Lewis’ spokesman yesterday tried to portray the suspensions as part of a bipartisan review that occured with the support of the committee’s ranking member Rep. David Obey (D-WI):

H.L.s Take
They know they are going down, they are now just trying to control how low.


Sean Hannity Tells Voters to Stay Home on Election Day

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on October 20th, 2006 11:04 am by HL

Check out what Sean Hannity (and his lover) are up to.

Ostroy Report
Excerpt
Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter pose with Coulter latest book During his “Man on the Street” segment during Thursday’s radio program, nationally-syndicated right-wing blowhard Sean Hannity urged several voters–in particular one 21-year-old self-proclaimed Democrat–not to vote in the November 7th midterms. “Your vote doesn’t matter anyway,”
and then proceeded to ask the kid if he was planning to vote. Yes, said the kid. Democrat?, asked Hannity. Yes, said the kid. “Why don’t you do me a favor and just stay home on election day, ok?,” requested Hannity. After hesitating, the kid said he’ll grant the favor and not vote. Hannity then said that anybody who doesn’t know who Pelosi and Reid is (not Hastert) should also stay home and not vote.

H.L.s Take
Desperation, desperation, desperation…He is so afraid of losing his cushy Republican mouthpiece blowhard money that he is going out on live TV and trying to talk Democrats not to vote. How low they will stoop, to expose there whoredom.
