Plame Game - "We admitted that we were powerless over the truth and our lives are an unmanageable sham!"

Catchy title no?

As the BIG switch from Blogger to the new blog is official, I thought this final post should come from Byron York who comments on the Plame Game sham law suit, of which her attorney states..... get this....hold your laughter.....

"Valerie Plame Wilson, the woman at the center of the CIA-leak investigation, says she played no role in sending her husband, former ambassador Joseph Wilson, to Niger in 2002 to investigate reports of Iraqi attempts to buy uranium."

I hope you weren't drinking a coke when you read that!

If so, wipe the monitor off and read the rest. As well you can read the archives on this blog reference to the REAL story behind this charade. Of course it's Valerie's position that she didn't recommend Joe for the trip because as with the revelations posted here and elsewhere, she might just be in a major jam.

Put it this way - they screwed up filing this lawsuit. It's like a kid telling on themself because they can't keep their story straight. These people are not very smart at all.

This is going to be fun taking them down.

See everybody on the "other side", there is MUCH MORE to come!


Think Progress "gets" McCain.....Yeah...and?

Lefty (Soros funded) Think Progress is hammering McCain over whether or not Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Makiki actually said he condemned Hezbollah.

So why would a left wing website - or any left winger care? Most of them, including Soros support both Hamas and Hezbollah. Beside even if al-Makiki did say that he condemned Hezbollah he wouldn't mean it. He couldn't. He wouldn't be worth a plug nickled to his constituency if he did.

This is what the left is "left" with - "Spell Checking".



Breaking: Andrea Yates NOT guilty

Just coming over the wires:

"Jurors found Andrea Yates not guilty by reason of insanity in her children's bathtub drowning deaths.

This is the second trial for the suburban mother who drowned her five young children in a bathtub.

The jury had spent 11 hours Monday and Tuesday trying to determine if Yates was legally insane. Wednesday morning, they reviewed the state's definition of insanity and then asked to see a family photo and candid pictures of the five smiling youngsters. After about an hour of deliberations, they said they had reached a verdict.

In Yates' first murder trial, in 2002, the jury deliberated about four hours before finding her guilty. That conviction was overturned on appeal."

Boy O' boy is this going to throw open the flood gates on appeals - Susan Smith anyone?


Is Larry Johnson harrassing Seixon?

H/t to Called as Seen blog, on this harrassment by one Larry C. Johnson of the owner/writer of the Seixon blog:

"Perhaps most haunting was the email I received from Larry Johnson last night. He claimed I defamed him and called him a liar. I did not defame him and he did lie to me when he said that he had answered my questions when he had in fact not done so. This was not part of the story I wrote yesterday, calling him a liar for that, I simply stated the fact that he declined to answer a set of yes/no questions I posed to him, as he responded that he had already answered them, which was false.

Johnson laced the email, to a personal account of mine which I do not usually give out and which is not available through Google, with personal details about my family and me. Just like Leopold had done, Johnson repeated my mother’s name, my parents’ address, and even my birth month and year. Obviously Johnson thought this would freak me out and scare me into retracting everything. He concluded the email with:

I am willing to accept a written apology and move on. If you refuse to retract your statements about me I am prepared to ratchet this up several levels. I have not spent the last twenty years working with the U.S. military and the intelligence community to accept this kind of nonsense from a wet-nosed 24 year old coward, who is an armchair warrior but does not have the courage to enlist in the military when his country is at war.

Is that a threat, Mr. Johnson? After I responded, he fired back with this:

I know where you are living. You forget that I do work for the European Union and friends in Interpol. I've offered you a mature way to deal with this situation. You're obviously too immature and inexperienced to recognize the offer for what it is. Too bad.

Is Larry Johnson using his law enforcement contacts to dig up information on me to intimidate me into retracting uncomfortable facts about his involvement with peddling false allegations against a commenter at my blog?"

I would suggest keeping a copy of the email and forwarding to the FBI. Interstate communication of a threat is a Felony and as such Johnson could be in a jam if in fact he sent the email. To wit:

"Whoever transmits in interstate or foreign commerce any communication containing any threat to kidnap any person or any threat to injure the person of another, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both."

Again, finding out if it is Johnson isn't hard and it would seem to be his MO. So don't let it go by, report it.


Kofi Kookaid

First: Kofi Annan is an idiot.

"BEIRUT, Lebanon - An Israeli bomb destroyed a U.N. observer post on the border in southern Lebanon, killing two peacekeepers and leaving two others feared dead in what appeared to be a deliberate strike, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said.

The bomb made a direct hit on the building and shelter of the observer post in the town of Khiyam near the eastern end of the border with Israel, said Milos Struger, spokesman for the U.N. peacekeeping force in Lebanon known as UNIFIL.

Annan issued a statement saying two U.N. military observers were killed with two more feared dead. Earlier, U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said the Security Council was informed that four officers were killed.

Israel's U.N. Ambassador Dan Gillerman expressed his "deep regret" for the deaths and denied the post was intentionally targeted.

Rescue workers were trying to clear the rubble, but Israeli firing "continued even during the rescue operation," Struger said.

U.N. officials said four observers were in the post when the bomb hit, and the building had been destroyed. Two bodies had been recovered and two were unaccounted for, apparently still in the rubble. They spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.

The victims included observers from Austria, a Canada, China and Finland, U.N. and Lebanese military officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information to the media. It was not immediately known which were confirmed dead.

As reports of the attack emerged, Annan rushed out of a hotel in Rome following a dinner with U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora.

"I am shocked and deeply distressed by the apparently deliberate targeting by Israeli Defense Forces of a U.N. Observer post in southern Lebanon," Annan said in the statement."

Oh really Annan, and on what evidence do you base this assertion? Some of your third-world thugs with you at the UN?

Talk about a lethal lack of leadership. At a time when you would think he would measure his words, he let's it all hang out without a shred of evidence. This with more scandals at his helm than all the former SG of the UN combined. Open mouth - insert hoof. This may be his curtain call on the world stage. At the very least it's further evidence for his ineptness.

Macsmind - Great Stupendous Wordpress Project - Damn near complete

The new blog is up here and the offical switch date will be Thursday at 8am EST. Don't worry, this blog is linked with all the archives from the beginning and will remain that way until can get them moved over to the new server.

Like I said, Blogger is cool, but 50,000+ visits, and double that amount of page views a month(Thanks to all of those who support this aging vet and honor me by listening to my rants), deserves a new home.

A toast of coffee (gave up the fire water years ago - bad dreams).....


One by one, they all fall down for the ACLU

John at Stop the ACLU reports on yet another ACLU lawsuit being tossed out of court. John provides this from ABC in Chicago:

" A federal judge on Tuesday dismissed a lawsuit that sought to bar AT&T from giving the government telephone records without warrants, saying it would require disclosures that would “adversely affect our national security.”

Judge Matthew F. Kennelly said disclosing whether AT&T had given such records to the supersecret National Security Agency in its hunt for terrorists would violate the government’s right to keep state secrets.

“The court is persuaded that requiring AT&T to confirm or deny whether it has disclosed large quantities of telephone records to the federal government could give adversaries of this country valuable insight into the government’s intelligence activities,” the 40-page opinion said.

Kennelly ruled in a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois on behalf of author Studs Terkel and others who claimed their rights had been violated by disclosure of the phone records to NSA."

This is huge and I agree with AJ at the Strata-Sphere that more of the ACLU cases will get the boot. Yet what is huge that no one has to date proved that this program was in anyway illegal - period. This was showboating by the ACLU, and they and this ruling shows that this judge can see that the ACLU has no other motivation than a political bias, and ruled that simply isn't good enough to indanger our national security - good for him.

Hell seeing that leftist icon Louis "Studs" Terkel was on the complaint, I'm even more glad.


Hezbollah - "We're Shocked!"

Hezbollah leader Mahmoud Komati is "shocked"that Israel has taken such strong action towards them:

"A senior Hezbollah official said Tuesday the guerrillas did not expect Israel to react so strongly to its capture of two Israeli soldiers.

Mahmoud Komati, deputy chief of the Hezbollah's political arm, also told The Associated Press that his group will not lay down arms.

His comments were the first time that a leader from the Shiite militant group has publicly suggested it miscalculated the consequences of the July 12 cross-border raid in which two Israeli soldiers were captured and three were killed.

"The truth is _ let me say this clearly _ we didn't even expect (this) response ... that (Israel) would exploit this operation for this big war against us," said Komati.

He said Hezbollah had expected "the usual, limited response" from Israel.

In the past, he said, Israeli responses to Hezbollah actions included sending commandos into Lebanon, seizing Hezbollah officials and briefly targeting specific Hezbollah strongholds in southern Lebanon.

Komati said his group had anticipated negotiations to swap the Israeli soldiers for three Lebanese held in Israeli jails, with Germany acting as a mediator as it has in past prisoner exchanges."

You know what happens when you anticipate don't you? This is total BS and a piece of crap article designed to pull sympathy to Hezbollah. Not unsual for the AP or it's writer, Scheherezade Faramarzi.


The Coming Storm - Rep. William Jefferson - Jefferson, Wilson, Clinton and the tenacles of corruption

Clarice Feldman has a new article out on American Thinker and kindly links yours truly as well, here, where I spoke of the real story behind the story. No comment necessary - Clarice covers well.

One point:

This man of Nigeria - who's wife the FBI nailed, could be the key.


The Clinton Factor

This is the event to watch....

"WATERBURY, Conn., July 24 -- Former president Bill Clinton joined a stage full of Connecticut officials Monday night in testifying to the Democratic credentials of Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman, whose 18-year tenure is threatened by the primary challenge of antiwar insurgent Ned Lamont.

Clinton headed a rescue effort disguised as a rally in the refurbished Palace Theater in downtown Waterbury -- a city famous in Democratic lore as the site of a tumultuous 2 a.m. outdoor rally on the final night of the 1960 presidential campaign.

With polls showing him no better than even with Lamont, a wealthy businessman who is largely self-financing his challenge in the Aug. 8 primary, Lieberman turned to his old friend Clinton for help.

The senator recalled that, as a Yale Law School student, Clinton had volunteered in Lieberman's first campaign for the state Senate 36 years ago, and he said he hoped this return visit would have an equally happy result -- a victory. The two have remained close through the years, despite the fact that Lieberman admonished Clinton for his moral laxity in the Monica Lewinsky affair in a celebrated Senate floor speech. Lieberman made no reference to that event Monday night but instead recalled, "I was the first senator outside Arkansas to endorse Bill Clinton for the nomination in 1992."

Lieberman did not mention Iraq or his support for the war, and Clinton touched only lightly on what he referred to as "the pink elephant in the room."

Clinton made no effort to support Lieberman's view; instead he said that Democrats should bear no blame for "the mistakes that were made after the fall of Saddam Hussein" and added: "We can disagree on what we do next . . . but we can fight together and we can go forward together."

The former president was kind to Lamont. "I have nothing against Joe's opponent," he said. "He has a right to run."

Ok, so why is it so fun to watch? Because the rabid "uber-left" like the Kos Kids are supporting Lamont - if for no other reason except he reminds them of Howard Dean. This lefty site muses on "Why Bill?", this being the most humorous:

"Hillary is afraid that if the marauding left is successful at defeating Lieberman, she’ll get caught in the anti-war wake so she dispatched Bill. Stemming the tide of the radical left (60% of the country) who are dissatisfied with the war is more important to the stand-for-nothings centrists than any animosity they might feel toward Lieberman for killing HillaryCare or siding with the GOP in their humiliating impeachment hijinks in the 90s (refresh your memory with YouTube above). (Colin McEnroe and Lowell Weicker favor this one, as does Maxine Waters)"

Yeah, fuzzy math, revisionist history and Maxine Waters.....yeah.. that's it

Dennis - Like....Shut up!

Speaker Dennis Hastert got that "hoof in mouth" disease bad!

"House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) said yesterday that he may challenge a judge's order allowing FBI agents to examine documents seized from a Louisiana congressman's Capitol Hill office in a bribery probe.

Hastert said he thinks Rep. William J. Jefferson (D-La.) is "in big trouble" and made clear that the House will not join any appeal on behalf of Jefferson. But Hastert said the House separately might seek to make clear its position that the Justice Department cannot randomly and wantonly search lawmakers' offices.

"There has to be a procedure for the Justice Department to come in and start just searching any congressman's office," Hastert said on "Fox News Sunday." "We may take a fine line depending on how the negotiations are. There is a constitutional division there that we have to protect."

Last week, Chief U.S. District Judge Thomas F. Hogan denied Jefferson's request to delay the investigation while the congressman appeals the judge's earlier ruling that the office search was legal."

Dennis - STFU. A judge declared the search was correctly and lawfully administered. You are standing on shaky ground, you got caught with your foot in the mouth and now you act as though you have something you're afraid of. We the American people want you or any other slimey weasel in the congress to have NO such protection and thats exactly what the judge said.

What part of "legal" do you not understand between the ears of that big fat head?

Sorry man, but leaders like you in the party we don't need.


Rockefeller did you teller? - Final Curtain?

Raw Story (grain of salt alert), is reporting that the NSA leak probe is probing all over Capital Hill.

"The agents and Justice Department officials are investigating whether any of the 15 current and former Members briefed earlier this decade about the National Security Agency spying program were a source for a New York Times report about the issue last December.

There are also indications from at least one Senator, Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), that the FBI is asking Members about comments of theirs that appeared in other publications regarding the NSA program.

The interviews, which came about after extensive negotiations this spring between the Justice Department and the counsels for the House and Senate, are taking place in Members’ Congressional offices, usually with two FBI agents and one Justice Department lawyer in attendance. Members are also permitted to have a House or Senate counsel on hand if they wished.

Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL), House Intelligence Chairman Pete Hoekstra (R-MI), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) have already been interviewed. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) is expected to be interviewed soon.

It’s unclear whether the federal investigators believe this leak came from Capitol Hill. Lawmakers did not give specifics of their questioning to ROLL CALL."

Let's get one thing clear from the outset and you can take it with more than a grain of salt. There is ONE very clear target of this investigation and we all know who. Which is the reason (backache my eye) he has been so "absent" of recent. Investigators have known from the beginning the who and where of their focus and subsequent interviews have been in additional support of the original thesis.

H/t to Stop the ACLU and AJ Srata for the heads up.
