PORT DEAL II: FOLLOW THE MONEY

The UAE gave the Bush admin $100M for Katrina aid, then turned around and bought our ports?!! Do they think we’re some Third-World country? Plus, “the UAE has long-standing ties to the Bush family.”

These guys are just too predictable!

PORT DEAL

What I want to know is, who’s benefiting from the UAE port deal, that the Bushies are so keen to see it through? Follow the money.

CAN CHENEY BE TRUSTED?

I want to believe Dick Cheney when he says how moved he was by shooting his friend. But has Cheney ever displayed warm human emotion before? We have no evidence. Is this just an act? Do we have all the information?

LATEST PLAME-GATE JUSTIFICATION

They’re saying Bush delegated some of his de-classifying power to Cheney, and Cheney de-classified some things for Libby. I don’t buy it. The Executive can’t declassify what the Legislative has classified; and the Vice-President has NO POWER anyway – he’s not a prime minister or a co-president! Therefore both Bush and Cheney are responsible and guilty, and should be impeached and together removed from office.

ECONOMIC TERRORISM

Is that what the U.S. and Israel have planned against the Palestinian people?

“POLITICALLY CORRECT,” OR JUST POLITE?

“It’s all about calling people what they want to be called – and what they want to be called by you may not be the same as what they want to be called by someone else.” From here.

CHARGES IN CHENEY HUNTING ACCIDENT?

First of all, I just read he was hunting without a needed stamp on his license.

More seriously, shouldn’t he get Reckless Endangerment at least, for shooting at quail below the levels of the heads of his fellow hunters, and injuring one?

DOMESTIC SPYING JUSTIFICATION FROM SANTORUM

Penna. Republican Senator Rick Santorum, in a letter to constituents, points out two justifications under FISA. First, “the President…may authorize electronic surveillance to obtain foreign intelligence for up to one year without a court order if certain criteria are met and certified in writing under oath.” Second, “Section 109 of FISA authorizes bypassing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court if ‘authorized by statute.'”

If FISA says either of those things, it’s unconstitutional, because no congressional law may override the 4th Amendment.
