MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

This sounds so much like a GOP plant. I don't think the Democrats are going to bite the hands that got them into power. This is something Bush would do and has done, kill the messengers. But, not the Democrats. The only people the Democrats need to go after for accountability is this criminal Bush administration and all of their supporters. This is something the Republicans would do. Can't Congress pass bills that don't have those crazy tack-ons or create problems where no problem exists. People, such as bloggers are not lobbying for money like those on "K" Street or buying government favors. Or, is this in there, so the damn thing will not pass. If this is the results of GOP and Democrats and their bipartisanship, then they all should have to pay for it the next election around.

NEWS RELEASE

January 19, 2007

Washington, DC- Tomorrow, Kansas Senator Sam Brownback will announce his candidacy for the GOP Presidential nomination giving the American people their first real glimpse into his rigid conservative ideology. Despite his rhetoric on "real compassion", Senator Brownback has seemingly put ideology first, voting against the needs of hard working Americans, protection for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, benefits for our veterans and against advancing medical research during his years in the Senate.

Shirley Smith: The Bushes Looking Ahead?

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,  

I could be wrong, because I don't know all of what is going on with the Bush library and SMU, but, isn't old man Bush a Methodist. I think this is another ploy to hide what this Bush administration has been to the American people.

The world is upside down, and one brave first lieutenant tries to set it right. The U.S. war in Iraq is illegal and immoral, says 1st Lt. Ehren Watada. In thus choosing reality over fallacy, and refusing to deploy to Iraq with his Stryker brigade, the 28-year-old Honolulu native faces six years in the brig when his court-martial begins next month at Ft. Lewis near Seattle.

Subject:How To Get Away With Mass Murder

The Pentagon wants to execute detainees based on hearsay and coerced testimony.

The document was hailed by Rep. Duncan Hunter of California, top Republican on the House Armed Services, who said, "Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks, and his cohorts are a step closer to trial."

Well, well, well......the cycle is complete. Osama has gone from the "mastermind behind 9/11" to "wanted dead or alive" to Bush "doesn't think about him anymore" to "Osama has been marginalized" to this latest piece of distraction from a Bush lackey: "Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks ... " Not even a mention of Osama? Osama who?

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

"Don't mention the war (or bash Bush)." If anyone thought the media was going to be more forthcoming in their reporting, forget it! The upcoming White House Correspondents Association Dinner tells us just how slanted the media is in America! Rich Little says he has "an understanding not to bash Bush or mention the war"! As for Stephen Colbert's "searing satire of President Bush and the White House press corps," while it may have touched the nerves of some, it most certainly did not fall flat! In fact a whole lot of Americans found the "truthiness" in what he said, and his courage in saying it, a refreshing change of pace!

Who is she trying to snooker?
That’s like saying a woman who gets paid for sex
Shouldn’t be called a hooker.

THE BATTLE TO SAVE IRAQ'S CHILDREN

The desperate plight of children who are dying in Iraqi hospitals for the lack of simple equipment that in some cases can cost as little as 95p is revealed today in a letter signed by nearly 100 eminent doctors. They are backed by a group of international lawyers, who say the conditions in hospitals revealed in their letter amount to a breach of the Geneva conventions that require Britain and the US as occupying forces to protect human life.

Subject: Sudden about-face by the Busheviks regarding court oversight of big brother spying

The reason that the cabal has made a sudden about-face regarding court oversight of governmental spying is very simple. In a word, Libby.

There are people within the cabal who see what is happening to Libby for committing perjury, and they're scared. They've let it be known within the secret circle that they will not be put in the same position. They'll talk before going to jail for perjury.
