Before Bush's speech in WV today, they showed about 100 people protesting. They were probably a mile away but they were protesting. One had a sign that said, "Bush can't talk when Cheney drinks water." heh
After Bush's speech the msnbc 'in studio' announcer said (paraphrasing) "Well, we don't know how many people were there for the speech. There were some protestors, but mostly it was patriotic Americans."

Subject: MSNBC (second letter)
There were between 300 and 500 protesters. Many got there late, so the press didn't know, until after the speech, how many were really there. Folks inside told me they could hear us shouting. We knew, by cell phone, when Bush started, and ratcheted up the chants to greet him. As people exited, they had to walk through our lines while we chanted and waived our signs. It was a very good event.
And, but the way, MSNBC, we who dissent are Patriotic Americans. The quality of one's patriotism is not measured by how willing he or she is to acquiesce to Bush. If acquiescence to authority were the mark of patriotism, we would still be a colony of England.

Subject: Is Novak the Other Source?
While all of us think Novak is getting a free pass, has Novak already been implicated? Does Fitzgerald need Cooper and Miller to confirm their contacts in order to indict Novak? Perhaps Cooper's and Miller's two sources were Rove and Novak.
Is Novak so inside the loop that he already knew Plame was an agent? He may or may not have known she was married to Wilson. When Rove was yapping about Wilson mucking up their lies for war by telling America the truth, Rove may have said that Wilson's wife was also a problem over in the CIA.
Maybe Novak already knew she was an Agent. Maybe they should be asking if Rove told Novak they were married in order that Novak could attempt to impeach Wilson through his wife? Maybe they should ask if Rove gave the order to Novak to write about it. Or was it Novak's idea? Even so, how did Novak know she was an agent and that she was married to Wilson, and when did he know it? Someone in very high places had to allow him to have that type of information or include him, very much like Chalabi. How is it that a journalist (is he a journalist or just a Gannon type person?) has that type of access to the CIA?
They expected us to think the forged documents and the aluminum tubes did not matter because Wilson and/or Plame did not show total loyalty to their President. Is their reply going to be that Wilson and Plame are wrong for telling Americans the truth because Bush wanted to go to war, so they deserved what they got? It is stunning that is exactly what they have been telling us all along.
The question hovering over them is what they are afraid of. Were they so angry that Wilson told Americans the truth, which showed their reasons for war to be a sham, that they thought vengeance was deserved? What they are covering up is that they all lied about reasons for war. Rove may have outed Plame and he may have given the order for the article, but it could have been any one of them.
Even without the DSM this act of vengeance has shown they had an agenda for war, and they would resort to anything to proceed. And I do mean anything. Now they are going to have to tiptoe around the DSM. No wonder they all have lawyers.
We probably do not even know the half of it because they could also now be worried about covering their tracks to protect Cheney or Bush from perjury or aiding and abetting or obstructing justice. Talk about a tangled web.
Judging from the things Novak wrote in columns when the CIA had internal battles right after Bush took the 2nd term, Novak was fierce about the CIA's need to be loyal to the President at all costs. Was he protecting himself or making his own case?
As BuzzFlash says ... it is not just a matter of perjury. A federal agent was outed to get vengeance, maybe directed at both Wilson and Plame. It took nearly 20 years to build that covert department that kept watch over who had nuclear capabilities. It was gone in one news report. It only took 5 minutes for nations dealing with the covert corporations to realize that all the people involved with Plame were spies ... and connect it to the covert corporations.
All that money WE pay the federal government to keep us safe, all that time ... all those years, who knows how much was spent on this, and because of the viciousness and vengeance of this Bush regime it was gone just like that. That this was the department directly involved in keeping us safe from terrorism or nuclear attacks greatly endangers the well-being and security of Americans.
Novak's allegiance to Bush is high treason to the country. Yeah ... read that again.
I'll be waiting for a new law to protect the Bush regime so that no one can testify against him or any of his cabinet, much like laws protecting husbands and wives from testifying against teach other.
They will stonewall. If it seems someone will go to jail, it will happen just before Bush leaves office and he will pardon them all. That may make it a little difficult to put in a replacement to continue their march to a new world order, but with the voting machines and Patriot <sic> Act, that should not be much of a problem for them.
[BuzzFlash Note: Most reports refer to two "government" or "administration" sources for the leaking of Plame's name: See, e.g., "Is it Rove?"]
Subject: Re: Celebrating Independence in the Era of Empire
The disastrous road on which Republicans have led this country during the preceding 40 years is leading to this nation's downfall. At a time in history when the US needs all its resources to face a century which faces severe problems throughout the world and not least of all this country, our resources and citizens' future are being lost. We are on a road to nowhere, on a one-way trip which there is no return.
Subject: More mysterious happenings in DC
First off, I don't know why they are making such a big deal of the retiring of Justice O'Connor. Doesn't anyone but me remember when Gore had been called for the 2000 election, she snapped...."S+++, now I will have to stay on for another 8 years!".? I heard that not once but a hundred times!! (This is but one year into Bush's second term) Now it's okay, Ms. O'Connor. And, why in the world is there not being one thing done about the Valerie Plame outing...we know that Karl Rove did it....it is an impeachable offence..they are going to get away with this one, too. And, where is Bob Novak in all this...he is going to get off scott free, too?! Over the weekend...at 2am in the morning...I watched on booknotes c-span, an author named David Griffin. He was at the University of Wisconsin.....and he scared the heck out of me. He wrote a book entitled "The 9/11 commission report....its omissions and distortions"' How scary is that....? It explains so much that so many of us have wondered about....Why did building 7 collapse...it was not hit by any plane? Why didn't the automatic firing apparatus go off at the Pentagon? They supposedly have a defense mechanism that automatically fires if any plane gets too close. Why were no pictures available at that particular scene? Why did it hit the only part of the 5-section building that was under construction....directly across the expanse from Rumsfeld's office! That part of the building was sparsely inhabited that day.....and as to Barbara Olsen...was she sacrificed? Strange....isn't it? Why did steel-reinforced buildings collapse? And large steel girders blew outward, and were picked up by trucks (from the trade center) to be shipped out to China? Since when is it okay to take pieces away from a scene of a crime? When I look at "Fahrenheit/911"....and see the way Bush reacted in the schoolroom.....I think now....that he was figuring it went like it was planned! Someone please tell me that this book has been debunked!!! Our lives are passing right in front of our eyes!
[BuzzFlash Note: If we had full confidence in Griffin's analysis, we'd probably have his book as a premium. We haven't seen his viewpoint proven or disproved.]
Subject: Valerie Plame Case
If the reporters in question, Miller, Cooper, and Novak, were really interested in serving their readers...this is the story they should have published: "Today I was contacted by a White House employee named (Karl Rove?) who tried to involve me in a criminal act, that of outing a CIA agent by printing a name. I believe the purpose was to smear her husband."
The granting of anonymity to sources is reserved for when the government employee is committing the crime and a citizen is speaking out and needs to be protected....not when the government employee is committing the crime and wants the reporter to cover-up for him!
In this case, Joe Wilson should have been the one protected by the reporters.
Subject: WHOSE "original intent"??
Having just read an article in the Washington Post that evangelical Christians are turning the pressure on (in an effort to nominate an "original intent, guaranteed to toe the conservative hard line replacement for Sandra Day O'Connor) I suddenly remembered the history courses I hardly paid attention to in college. One of them made us read The Federalist Papers (big yawn at the time). But, as I recall, even though Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died on the same day -- wasn't it July 4th? -- they hardly SHARED an "original intent." The whole point of framing our Constitution was to compromise among (sometimes drastically) opposing viewpoints and attempt to reconcile them into a document that none of them might have agreed with fully but could live with. And live with one another.
We seem to have lost that approach (and ability) today. I dread the approaching Supreme Court nomination. (Of course this has happened before, but today the right feels empowered -- and ready to collect on its contributions to an administration based on palpable lies.) I have this prickly feeling that it will be uglier and more divisive than ever. Bork deserved denial to serve on the Supreme Court. He got what he deserved. But who will the Busheviks try to shove down our throats THIS time? Two recent appointees (Alberto Gonzales, justifier of torture, and Janice Rogers Brown, who bends the law almost to the breaking point) are -- or so I've heard -- being considered to replace O'Connor.
Today is July 4th. Maybe it's time for a new revolution. WAKE UP, DEMOCRATS. Don't let this happen to our country. Your jobs -- and our survival -- are at stake here.
Once again: there WAS no "original intent" in the Constitution. It was a compromise document that -- unlike today -- our founding fathers finally agreed on to form our nation. Those who argue for "original intent" justices are simply arguing for their OWN original intent.

Subject: "Our country right, or wrong. When right to be kept right; when wrong to be put right! -- Carl Schurz
Fly our flags, honor our troops and the sacrifice of their families, BUT at the same time don’t let patriotism blind you to the reality of the Iraq war facts or the truth that has been replaced by the propaganda of the George W. Bush Administration! If our Government had a compass, it would be telling us we are going in the wrong direction
As we celebrate our Independence Day, what does today look like in the life of the average Iraqi? Every day in Iraq is a day plagued by violence, but you never know where or when it will occur. The Iraqis deal with difficult living conditions. As we light the barbecues, grill the steaks and burgers, they wonder if they will have electricity or water! As we watch the fireworks in all their glory, they watch for insurmountable security issues like bombs, explosions, and raids on their homes! As we sit in the comfort of our homes, they wonder if tomorrow their home will still be standing, or a family member pulled out of the house for interrogation or worse! If you are a doctor, will needed medical supplies reach your hospital? As a student, are you more worried about an exam or if there will be an explosion at school? As a worker do you have to plan your route to work avoiding incidents or terrorism hot spots, that is, if you even have a job to go to? How do Iraqis feel about the arrogance of Bush statements, "If we fight them there, we will not have to fight them at home." Even to Americans, that Bush statement is not accepted any more as proved by Bush’s constantly falling approval ratings! In the mind of many Iraqis, we are as much terrorists as the insurgents. In fact, we have caused increased terrorism in their country!
Death of Knight Ridder Reporter, Other Civilians in Iraq, Draws Official Criticism (Editor & Publisher)
Mr. Bush has held that liberation, elections and turning over sovereignty to the new government show progress -- yet fatality facts and reported living conditions contradict his glossy proclamations!
David Broder has a report in the Washington Post: called “The Metrics of Success” that is a must read! An excerpt reads:
This morning as we planned our Independence Day activities, there were killings reported in Mosul, Baghdad, and Kurdistan with 2 of our soldiers found dead in Afghanistan! We honor 1745 of our soldiers killed in Iraq in one of the highest months of violence.
Franklin D. Roosevelt in a message to be remembered every day said, "More than an end to war, we want an end to the beginning of all wars-yes, an end to this brutal inhuman and thoroughly impractical method of settling the differences between governments." This war president, George W. Bush, with his illusions of progress, has brought home Mark Twain's admonition, "It's easier to stay out than get out!"
Subject: The Supreme Court, 10 Commandments, and the Beatitudes
You know, I just don’t get this flap over the Ten Commandments! I have been thinking about my confusion ever since the Supreme Court’s latest rulings on their display and perhaps I can get my thoughts in order by putting them to paper.
I don’t know how old I was when this happened but I was just old enough to read and understand at a level above Dick and Jane. Maybe around the age of 8 or 9.
My mother came home from church one evening and gave me a little booklet entitled, "A Child’s Primer on the Bible." I read the whole darn thing and I liked it so much that I still have it at the ripe old age of 63. I keep it my home safety deposit box because it seemed to tell me, at the time, everything I thought I would ever need to know about life and the Bible. I have found that to be true.
The Ten Commandments were on page three, after The Apostles’ Creed and The Lord’s Prayer. I wasn’t all that impressed. I don’t remember my exact thoughts but they were something like this: "Gosh, doesn’t everybody know you don’t do stuff like that!"
When I turned the page, I came upon The Beatitudes and I was very impressed. Again, I don’t remember my exact thoughts but they were something like, "That is soooo beautiful. I don’t get it but I like it!"
The rest of the booklet contained the Twenty Third Psalm, a list of books in the Bible, "Lay me down to sleep," a couple of table prayers; and, on the back a reference guide to items of interest to children in the Bible (like where to find the longest and shortest Bible verses)
I guess I have a mind that always wants to go to the bottom line. I have read and occasionally read the big book but I have never had a need or desire to pour over Bible verses trying to engage in a deep analysis of their meaning and significance. I really, really did get all that I needed in the Child’s Primer and I decided, in that first sitting, that it is The Beatitudes that are the nub of the whole religion thing. I haven’t pondered them for hours either. I have some thoughts about what they mean but mostly I just groove on the spirit of them.
Oh, Lord, don’t bring those fundamentalists after me! I know what they would say about the state of my lazy and indifferent soul but I just can’t help it. Number one, I just don’t think we can ever really grasp the mind of God; and, number two, especially not when I really don’t think there was a stenographer sitting around taking this all down in English just as it happened and copying it off word for word on a Xerox machine! I will take it all back if we ever find the stone tablets with the Ten Commandments on them. Well, on one condition: that they are in English and that they follow, word for word, what the St. James version of the Bible says.
I guess that, if I had to try to summarize what The Beatitudes say to me, it would be something like this, "Don’t be impressed with all the goodies the high and mighty appear to have. Those things aren’t going get you into heaven. Be nice to one another and don’t let the crap get you down because I have a different set of standards that aren’t quite as obvious as give me money and I will give you favors!" Something like that.
Which kind of brings me to my real point. How come we aren’t forever asking the Supreme Court to let us put the Beatitudes up on the courthouse lawn? They are fairly short and to the point and they, too, would fit nicely on a reasonably small slab of granite. I am serious. I just don’t get it! They are the foundation of MY Christian faith. Doesn’t that count for something? Am I like the only person in the world who likes them or who thinks they are important?
Forced to make a case for displaying the Beatitudes, it would be something like this: “We aren’t talking here about what Moses brought down from the mountain, for cripes sake. That’s Old Testament fire and brimstone stuff. God made a new covenant with his people in the New Testament. We are talking about what Jesus Christ said out of his own mouth in The Sermon on the Mount if you people want to yammer on about being Christians. Christians are followers of Christ, aren’t they ?, and don’t get all picky over that Judeo- Christian heritage thing because I am talking about the bottom line here!”
Of course, I am being facetious. I know darn well why "we" would like to have the Ten Commandments carved into the front of the judge’s podium. They make us look good when we are sending innocent people to death row on the basis of shoddy evidence. And, they play big while we’re packing poor, black people who can’t afford a private attorney off to jail in droves for non-violent crimes that would earn a white person probation. Prisons create jobs, for cripes sake, and help keep the poor and homeless from taking shelter in our shopping malls. We just need the wrath of God hanging over the whole show for a little credibility.
I don’t really want the Beatitudes on the courthouse lawn. I am actually hoping the fundamentalists never find them in their daily Bible excursions. If the wing nuts of the Christian right can crucify Sponge Bob, they can twist the Beatitudes into support for attacking Great Britain if it pisses us off too much.
The Supreme Court’s recent rulings on The Ten Commandments just greased the slippery slope that leads to the establishment of an American Taliban.
As the Rude Pundit advises on his or her blog, I "mostly don’t give a S*** about what anyone else has to say." This is how I see it.
Subject: Justice Souter's Property Threatened by Eminent Domain
In case you missed it, there's an attempt to grab Justice Souter's property in New Hampshire by eminent domain and build a hotel on the property. This would be the height of irony if it actually happened, but realistically it has no chance. As a matter of fact, the New Hampshire legislature is considering a law that would, in effect, nullify the Supreme Court decision.

Subject: OK, the Weekend's Over ... Now Let's Go and Get Rove!!!!!
The long holiday weekend was what Bush and Rove needed when the Rove "leakage" story broke on Saturday.
Now that the news media is returning to their jobs, on Tuesday, will they pick up on it and bring it to a boil?
Will we get to see the REAL media or the media being suppressed by a fascist regime?
Whatever the case, if the Democratic leadership, and the democratic talking heads, sit on this one the way they sat on all their potential Bush breaking stories during the campaign ... then they will have no one to blame but themselves.
This needs to be exposed, hit on, harped on, and put into the heads of every American ... and just as the Republicans know that if you repeat something often enough, it becomes fact ... so Dems need to use the words "Treason" and "Traitor" as often as they can without directly calling Rove a traitor.
If they are smart they will use the same linkage philosophy that Republicans, especially Bush, used to link 9/11 and Iraq without ever saying that there really was a link.
But if Dems can put the words "traitor, treason and Rove" in the same confines of the same sentences, and paragraphs, they will have learned how it works.
And, the American people will hear what the Dems want them to think.
That's how it works. Are the Dems smart enough to pick up on it or do I have to teach them?

Subject: A different kind of thought from me
I was just thinking about all the bull crap happening in America right now. The really mentally challenged little Hitler people like Perkins, Dobson, et al. and the neo-con delusional dudes and dudettes-are making life miserable for the average American as well as the whole world. I am fortunate enough to be 57 years old. I have lived through the death of Kennedy, King, Kennedy and more. I have been involved with No war, love-ins and peace. I have swayed to the Buffalo Springfield and the Animals and Jim Morrison. I at one time married a specialist dentist and went wacko living in a really nice upscale place in Los Angeles called Bel Air. I have taken drugs and drank too much and have been sober since January, 1979. In other words, I have seen a bunch.
I lived in a world with no Roe v. Wade decision. In a world where Nixon and Reagan were prez. I have watched corruption and illegal wars. We have tried to save the world for our children and grandkids and perhaps it is time for the right wingers to actually see what it is really like for their kids and grandkids and even themselves to live in the world they want. I realized that when we fought for our rights, getting them then meant a lot more than if someone had handed them down to us. Let today's girls fight for abortion rights...we already did. Let the younger ones who fear equality is slipping away fight for it like we did. It becomes a gift instead of a "right" and is very precious indeed. Let them put 10 commandments stuff everywhere--while other religions will do the same--federal grounds will get really crowded! Let their kids get knocked up and have to have the kid at perhaps 14 years old and all their neighbors can watch. Let them send their kids off to an illegal war--let them.
This country after seeing what it has become will turn and run from the Repigs after a while and the average reasonable Repig will be leading the charge. Liberals will ALWAYS be able to find a doctor to help them terminate a pregnancy, we have common sense and the will to live the way we want. We are not sheep and brainwashed. I think we should lay down the sword, let them have what they want (the religious right is a minority--they are just loud) and let them fight amongst themselves. It will be really interesting to then see the direction the country takes--and they will have no one to blame.

If you scroll down about half-way in the article, you'll find the real reason why Toyota picked Ontario, Canada over the Southeastern U.S. for its new manufacturing plan:
"In addition to lower training costs, Canadian workers are also $4 to $5 cheaper to employ partly thanks to the taxpayer-funded health-care system in Canada, said federal Industry Minister David Emmerson."
Re-inforcing that as the reason is the fact that only the Southeastern U.S.---which has the lowest wages in the entire United States---was mentioned as being considered.

Subject: "Tone down the heated rhetoric"??? Look who's talking!!!
Just when I think life can't become any more illogical, it does. WHAM!! Dubya is opposing his own "conservative" (quotes are deliberate; from my personal viewpoint, they're more radical -- as were the McCarthyites (whom I know only from history books) who preceded them) electoral base, he turns off course. Instead of flipping out rhetorical waffles to the religious right, he stands up for Alberto Gonzales.
But is this REALLY out of character? Nope.
To Dubya, the entire universe (past, present and future) revolves around HIM. (That's a privilege one obtains by being born the eldest son of rich, well-connected parents. Becoming -- for probably a decade or two more than the biblical original -- the Prodigal Son simply adds to the image.) It suddenly struck me today: he really doesn't give a...um, CARE what the "religious right" wants. He's the classic insider; i.e., go for what you want -- and take your friends with you when you can. (Unfortunately, so is John Kerry; hence the rollover after the 2004 election.) These people understand each other completely. But they have zero grasp of what the rest of America is thinking, wanting, believing.
The next Supreme Court nomination should be "interesting" (remember the old Chinese curse: "May you live in interesting times"?) at least. Possibly stomach-churning. Bill Frist will make a fool of himself once again. (And I thought Dubya had a tin ear; Frist's is even worse!) Meanwhile, where are the Democrats?

Subject: Rove To Get Medal of Freedom [in the spirit of H. G. Wells' War of the Worlds]
Karl Rove Awarded Medal of Freedom:
Washington - Exclusive - Unconfirmed sources report that George W. Bush has awarded Karl Rove the Presidential Medal of Freedom for bravery beyond the call of duty in the Valerie Plame affair. New evidence sworn before a Washington grand jury has outlined an amazing tale of intrigue and daring from within the White House itself. Evidence now confirms that a secret al-Qaeda terrorist cell working inside the White House was responsible for the leak of CIA agent Valerie Plame's identity and Karl Rove, the President's right hand man, fought and ultimately lost a secret battle to defend Plame's identity.
"You couldn't make up a story with as many twists and turns as this one, it's like a John Le Carre novel" said Robert Luskin, Rove's lawyer. "It's hard to believe, but Karl and White House security staff have been waging a secret battle inside the West Wing to expose a daring terrorist cell working in the heart of our government. Karl fought a bitter battle to contain the terrorists and defend Ms Plame's identity. He fought like hell to defend Plame and sadly lost. The rogue cell inside the White House defeated my client and framed him. I'm just glad the President and every good American finally sees the truth and won't believe what everybody is saying. Karl is a Hero and deserves the Presidential Medal of Freedom."
"No comment," said outspoken supporter of Rove, Patriot Bob Novak.
"Boy do I feel like a total schlub," admitted US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald of Chicago, who headed up the investigation. "This new evidence puts the whole matter into a new light. I should have known it was a bunch of dirty terrorists the whole time. This cell probably has links to 9/11, Osama Bin-Laden, Saddam Hussein and Hillary Clinton. And to think I thought this could have been perpetrated by a great American like Karl Rove. I need to have my head examined."
Once the details of Rove's brave struggles against the terrorists, who managed to escape, became public, President Bush wasted no time in honoring his long-time friend. The ceremony took place aboard Air Force One as it flew the President on a fence-mending tour of Europe.
"Karl Rove is the beating heart of America's struggle in the war against terrorism. Karl and I are united in our resolve to fight, stop and punish those who would do harm to the American people. Karl's words are my words, my words are Karl's words and our deeds are our deeds," said the President after the ceremony. "Karl is my closest associate in the White House and one of the finest public servants it has been my privilege to know," he added.
Rove is expected to be greeted with a ticker tape parade in Washington when he and the President return later this week, followed by similar events in every major city in the United States of America.
