BREAKING: A Whole New Level Of Horror

by- Suzie-Q @ 8:21 PM MST

“This war is so fucking illegal.” (Patrick Tillman)

From the AP:

SAN FRANCISCO –

Army medical examiners were suspicious about the close proximity of the three bullet holes in Pat Tillman’s forehead and tried without success to get authorities to investigate whether the former NFL player’s death amounted to a crime, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.

“The medical evidence did not match up with the, with the scenario as described,” a doctor who examined Tillman’s body after he was killed on the battlefield in Afghanistan in 2004 told investigators.

The doctors – whose names were blacked out – said that the bullet holes were so close together that it appeared the Army Ranger was cut down by an M-16 fired from a mere 10 yards or so away.

In other words, Pat Tillman was most likely murdered in the field. In cold blood. By other US soldiers.

This must be what the Bush Administration was trying so desperately to hide behind their all purpose “Executive Privilege” shield.

Texas ToastPress Conference

Senate Press Conference Calling For Gonzales Special Prosecutor

By: Nicole Belle on Thursday, July 26th, 2007 at 11:15 AM – PDT

“The Attorney General took an oath to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Instead he tells the half-truth, the partial truth and everything but the truth. And he does it not once, not twice, but over and over and over again. His instinct is not to tell the truth but to dissemble and deceive.”

UPDATE: In addition to the letter to Paul Clement, Solicitor General requesting a Special Prosecutor from outside the Justice Department, the plan includes subpoenaing Karl Rove as well. Let’s see how well that plays in the White House. Will they ignore a Special Prosecutor’s subpoena too? see link

UPDATE #2: Joining the dogpile, FBI Director Robert Mueller contradicts Gonzales’ testimony. see link

BREAKING: FBI Director Mueller Says Gonzales Lied

by- Suzie-Q @ 2:54 PM MST

It may be time to start heating up that Texas toast. Here’s the Associated Press report:

FBI Director Robert S. Mueller said Thursday the government’s terrorist surveillance program was the topic of a 2004 hospital room dispute between top Bush administration officials, contradicting Attorney General Alberto Gonzales’ sworn Senate testimony.

Mueller was not in the hospital room at the time of the dramatic March 10, 2004, confrontation between then-Attorney General John Ashcroft and presidential advisers Andy Card and Gonzales, who was then serving as White House counsel. Mueller told the House Judiciary Committee he arrived shortly after they left, and spoke with the ailing Ashcroft.

“Did you have an understanding that that the conversation was on TSP?” asked Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas. TSP stands for terrorist surveillance program.

I had an understanding the discussion was on a NSA program, yes,” Mueller answered.

Jackson asked again: “We use ‘TSP,’ we use ‘warrantless wiretapping,’ so would I be comfortable in saying that those were the items that were part of the discussion?”

The discussion was on a national NSA program that has been much discussed, yes,” Mueller responded.

TPMtv: The New Al Qaeda Bamboozle

The Bush administration has really been pushing the Al Qaeda in Iraq line recently, constantly citing 9/11 in reference to the enemy that we face in Iraq, an enemy that essentially all military and intelligence experts agree is far more complicated and heterogenous a force than simply Al Qaeda. Will the media start drawing the distinction?

Delay: US And Israel Must Enjoy Second Coming

by- Suzie-Q @ 1:18 PM MST

After attending the College Republican convention, Nation journalist Max Blumenthal took his camera to the Christians United for Israel’s annual Washington-Israel Summit in D.C. Founded by right-wing mega-church pastor John Hagee, the group has “added the grassroots muscle of the Christian right to the already potent Israel lobby,” “forging close ties with the Bush White House and members of Congress.”

That evangelical support for Israel is largely based on “End Times” theology is largely irrelevant to the Israeli politicians who share the goal of expanding settlements into the West Bank and a military strike on Iran, but it is anything but irrelevant to the rank-and-file members and even one former House Majority Leader.

Blumenthal opens the video by interviewing Tom Delay, who when asked how much the “Second Coming” plays into his support for Israel, says, “obviously, it’s what I live for, I hope it comes tomorrow.”

Delay closed by saying, “we have to be connected to Israel to enjoy the second coming.”

Bush Grandfather Part Of Plan For US Coup

by- Suzie-Q @ 12:08 PM MST

Document uncovers details of a planned coup in the USA in 1933 by a group of right-wing American businessmen

 

The coup was aimed at toppling President Franklin D Roosevelt with the help of half-a-million war veterans. The plotters, who were alleged to involve some of the most famous families in America, (owners of Heinz, Birds Eye, Goodtea, Maxwell Hse & George Bush’s Grandfather, Prescott) believed that their country should adopt the policies of Hitler and Mussolini to beat the great depression.

Dow Jones in Free Fall!

Posted by Basheert @10:55 AM MST

Huffington Post

In 2004, I looked around and saw lots and lots of people caught in the Housing Bubble. These people were purchasing homes with nothing down, way overpriced, bidding on LOTS in the desert with NO guarantee of water. They obtained mortgages with ZERO principal payment (how insane is THAT???). Then the bubble burst.

All those subprime mortgages down the drain – WHAT were THEY thinking? This once again goes back to people simply buying whatever they can, even if they can’t afford it!

Sad – but many got caught up in housing fever, and now the bubble has burst.
