Liberal Hypocrisy

Liberals are having a fit because:

"SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (AP) -- U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, a musician in his own right, helped secure the release of Atlanta R&B producer Dallas Austin from a United Arab Emirates jail after a drug conviction, the senator's office confirmed Saturday.

In a statement released through his staff, the conservative Republican said he was contacted by Austin's attorneys, then called the ambassador and UAE consul in Washington on Austin's behalf."



Lefty 'America' blog:

'What a bizarre story and with the exception of campaign contributions (yes, call me cynical) I can't even imagine how or why Hatch intervened to help music producer Dallas Austin get out of his conviction for drug possession in the United Arab Emerites. Whether Austin chooses to take drugs like cocaine is his own business but anyone who travels to other countries is, or at least should be, aware of the laws of the country. Many countries make it abundantly clear when you arrive and put a skull and crossbones with bold font "death to drug traffickers" on the landing card and while I have never traveled in the Middle East outside of Israel, I would have guessed that possession would not be viewed lightly.

All of that said, why Orrin Hatch? It sounds like he is on good terms with the UAE leadership but why was he so willing to use his own influence for a drug convict? So are there now exceptions with law and order conservatives if big money is involved? What's the connection here?"


Of course these same screamed bloody murder when convicted murderer Tookie Williams didn't get off although they and half of liberal Hollyweird went to bat for him.

Whether Hatch did the right or wrong thing, if it had been Senator Hillary Clinton or Barak Obama, you can bet it would have been hailed.

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.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
