Thank God for Blogs

"Deep Throat"

The above post over at Polipundit just reinterates the absolute hypocrisy of liberals and their cohorts in the MSM. Just at they had a hands off approach to the Clintons - yet went with ferver at President Bush during the 2004 campaign - they continually show their hypocrisysy and arrogance. Thank God for the Blogs! Imagine what would have happened if the media had done it's "job" during Johnson's administration.

If scrutiny had been beyond the "gatekeepers" of the airwaves then Johnson would have been toast and JFK before him.

This is an excerpt from an 1998 article in National Review that details a familar story yet wasn't covered by the MSM:

"Although Goldwater was invariably described by the media as an extremist, the extremist tone of the 1964 campaign was set not by the Republican challenger but by the Democratic incumbent. And everyone in the Democratic campaign organization got the message: Anything goes. Which is why the White House did not hesitate to use the Central Intelligence Agency illegally to obtain information about the Goldwater campaign. E. Howard Hunt, later convicted for taking part in the Watergate break-in, was then serving as chief of covert action for the CIA's Domestic Operations Division. He told a congressional committee a decade later that he was ordered to spy on Goldwater's headquarters in the fall of 1964. When Hunt, who knew full well that the senator could not be classified as a domestic enemy,' expressed reluctance to carry out the assignment, he was told that President Johnson himself had ordered this activity.' By the middle of September, Goldwater's regional directors were convinced that the telephones at the Republican national offices were bugged. The offices were periodically swept for listening devices, but important information kept leaking to the Democrats. The directors became so spooked that they began making their confidential calls from outside pay telephones. Far more disturbing was the FBI's illegal bugging of the Goldwater campaign plane, where the senator and his top aides often made crucial decisions. The bureau's illegal surveillance was discovered by Robert Mardian several years later, when he was assistant attorney general for the Internal Security Division in the first Nixon Administration."

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

Monday Morning Intelligence with Kool Aid and the NY Times - UPDATE

Followup to previous post.

NY Times: 9/11 Commission's Staff Rejected Report on Early Identification of Chief Hijacker

Ok, I've been on the phone now for...oh, about three days, to some old chums in Tampa, checking this story out, asking questions,...etc. So far what I've heard is that IF this story is true, then those who are really in the know in the Intel world are feeling like a bunch of little red-hair step-childred.

Ed. Morissey is ready to hang the 911 Commission out to dry......mmm,

Ed, not so fast my friend.

Again, I am amazed at the vercacity the NY Times and AP is getting on this story, and from the same conservative bloggers who are normally parsing every "dot and tittle" the Times puts out. Who would think?...

Yeah, there is a lot of "anger" because of "Gorelick" fever where the blogshere and conservative media rightfully called attention to her conflict of interest while serving on the commission. But we can't let the "gotc…
