Special Counsel Probes Rove…

by- Suzie-Q @ 8:02 PM MST

The Office of Special Counsel, which has already recommended that GSA chief Lurita Doan be suspended or fired for participating in partisan activities while on the job, is now moving forward with its investigation of nearly 20 other administration agencies.

Eighteen agencies have been asked by the Office of Special Counsel to preserve electronic information dating back to January 2001 as part of its governmentwide investigation into alleged violations of the law that limits political activity in federal agencies.

The OSC task force investigating the claims has asked agencies, including the General Services Administration, to preserve all e-mail records, calendar information, phone logs and hard drives going back to the beginning of the Bush administration. The task force is headed by deputy OSC special counsel James Byrne.

The White House has admitted that roughly 20 agencies have received a PowerPoint briefing created by Karl Rove’s office “that included slides listing Democratic and Republican seats the White House viewed as vulnerable in 2008, a map of contested Senate seats and other information on 2008 election strategy.”

Ruby Ridge figure coming to Browns
STAND-OFF Survivor to Advise Tax Protesters

By Margot Sanger-Katz

Plainfield, meet Ruby Ridge.

Randy Weaver, who survived a standoff with U.S. marshals in Idaho that claimed the lives of his wife and son, is driving to New Hampshire this weekend to advise Ed and Elaine Brown on how to manage their own conflict with the marshal service.

“If it helps, I’m more than willing to do it,” Weaver said on an internet radio show this week.

The Browns, who have been holed up in their Plainfield home for nearly five months, say that any attempt to arrest them will result in bloodshed. The couple has been sentenced to more than five years in prison for a series of crimes related to their nonpayment of federal income taxes.

What do you do when you’re homeless?

by Geezer Power …2:11 PM PDT

As more and more folks fall through the cracks we see the amount of homeless people on the increase. Everybody feels the crunch as we have family and friends who are not able to pay their bills, or have already lost their home and need help. Seems like we’re all working to help out, but our resources are being drained too. There are people living in tent cities throughout the country, but in more and more places they are being driven out.

On top of the 3 million who were homeless or marginally homeless there are an additional 5 million poor people that spend over half of their incomes on housing, leaving them on the verge of homelessness. A missed paycheck, a health crisis, or an unpaid bill can easily push poor families over the edge into homelessness, and once that happens it’s all about survival. There are not enough shelters and not many places that you can even pitch a tent or build a wikiup.

The Portland Oregon Solution

Dignity Village International Tent City Celebration

Dear Fellow Portland Housing/Homeless Activists:

Homelessness is increasing worldwide. Housing costs are skyrocketing. Governments are more inclined to support tax cuts for the wealthy than help for low income people. Drastic cuts of essential entitlement or safety net programs are looming on the horizon–courtesy of the Bush Administration and U.S. Congress.

To truly end homelessness and poverty worldwide, we need to do more than just develop 10 year plans to end homelessness or bureaucracies to study the problem.

This is why the National Coalition for the Homeless, the nation’s oldest and largest national homelessness advocacy organization, supports such proactive legislative initiatives as the National Affordable Housing Trust Fund and the Bringing America Home Act. If enacted by Congress, both pieces of legislation would end homelessness in this country.

In addition to tackling the roots causes of poverty (lack of affordable housing, no universal health insurance, and poor-paying jobs) in this country and elsewehere, we support the development/operation of tent cities and other alternative housing models.

We join you in this international day of solidarity pushing for an end to homelessness and poverty today, not ten years from now.

(Note: because “rumor” has it that Suzie-Q‘s blog is the #1 site for the drive to impeach V.-P. Cheney, I thought I would repost this entry in order to bring a smile to Suzie-Q, my fellow Justice Bloggers and all readers of Suzie-Q’s blog. I hope you’ll all enjoy …

 It is well understood that neocons are adpet at accusing others of doing/thinking what they are actually guilty of doing/thinking.

The other day, U.S. V.-P. Dick B. Cheney gave a commencement address at the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York. Maybe he drank the wrong brand of tea that day, or perhaps he slightly over-medicated himself – in any event, he came out and revealed publicly the motus operandi of the President, himself and their neocon administration, condemning all they stand for, their ideological agenda, and everything they have been doing in the process so far. As reported, Cheney delivered his remarks in the context of moral and ethical lessons that the graduating cadets at West Point had learned in the course of their studies. Dixit Richard (Dick) B. Cheney: (more…)

The Democrats are hoping to soften what support remains for the war — eventually winning the battle in September, when Gen. Petraeus offers his report on the progress of the surge.

Be afraid. The ghosts of campaigns past are once again haunting the Democratic Party.

Remember 2004, and how the Kerry camp couldn’t decide whether to highlight the war and national security or to push domestic issues? Well, those chains are rattling again.

Even as a steady stream of bad news pours out of Iraq, Democrats are once more divided over how much of their focus to put on Iraq.

Thankfully, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid seem to have learned the lesson of 2004 — it’s not the extended family leave, stupid. Or, at least, they’ve learned the lesson of 2007: there is nothing wrong with being a one trick pony, if it’s the right trick. And at this point, getting us out of Iraq is the feat voters most want to see.

“You can’t become a one trick pony,” warned Rahm Emanuel, arguing that Democrats need to pay equal attention to domestic issues. And Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor yesterday called on Democrats to abandon efforts to set a public troop withdrawal date (Pryor said he could support a super-double-secret redeployment timeline known only to a select group of U.S. officials. I assume this would include Gen. Petraeus, Karl Rove, and Steve Perry — who proved he can keep things hush-hush).

I guess Emanuel, Pryor, and those in their camp missed the reports of plummeting approval ratings for Congressional Democrats after the no-timeline Iraq funding vote.
