Meanwhile...another recess appointment from Bush

While most of us were paying attention to Cindy Sheehan's efforts to get to the truth about why her son Casey died in Iraq, the impending Supreme Court appointment hearing on Roberts and the most devastating natural disaster in the century, Bush was making another sneaky recess appointment. The Associated Press:

President Bush has used a constitutional provision to bypass the Senate and fill a top Justice Department slot with an official whose nomination stalled over tactics at the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, naval facility.
Bush used a "recess appointment" Wednesday to name Alice S. Fisher to lead the agency's criminal division. Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., had blocked the nomination because he wants to talk to an agent who named Fisher in an e-mail about allegedly abusive interrogations at the U.S. military prison camp at Guantanamo.

The agent wrote that in weekly meetings with Justice Department officials "we often discussed (Defense Department) techniques and how they were not effective or producing (intelligence) that was reliable." In the next sentence, the agent said Fisher, then the No. 2 official in the criminal division, was among Justice officials who attended the meetings.

Fisher has said she does not recall participating in the discussions, and Justice officials have said the agent did not intend to say she had. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales declined to let senators question the agent, saying it would violate long-standing policy.

a recess appointment is completly within his power idiot! Clinton did this 140 times....get over it your fucking anti-war hippies...

We KNOW every president has this authority, again YOU COMPLETELY MISS THE POINT!!!(Please don't say the word "power" , that word is scary around Shrub) Recess appt. is NOT what we are concerned about, it's WHO Bush is appointing during these recess appts. These people Bush chooses are PNAC thugs >>> oh geesh I'm talking to a plant again about a shrub>>> wasted breath and pointless typing :(

PS I am not a hippie and what is so bad about being against illegal mass murder?


I just emailed my representative, you can also do it. I also emailed my email list the same.

(copied from another website)

Representative Charlie Bass

Please ask for the resignation of President Bush, Vice-President Cheney, and Homeland Security Secretary Chertoff over their incompetent handling of the Katrina hurricane. If they do not resign, please begin impeachment proceedings.

Not only were they criminally negligent and indifferent to the suffering of U.S. citizens, they completely eroded any sense of confidence in the federal government.

How can I have my family watch our citizens on television suffer without assistance for 5 days? I am tired of the perpetual lies and excuses from the Bush administration! As a tax payer and citizen I demand results.

Billions and billions have been spent on homeland security with no results whatsoever – and thousands of lives have been lost.

Clearly, we do NOT need new laws, more government, or new technology. What we demand is competent and dedicated government that attends to the needs of the people.


(YOU Can do the same, there has to be accountability for the deaths of so many people, when this could have been avoided if George W Bush didn't cut the funds from the Engineers back in 2001. President Bush has shown the people of America that he is not the leader that most people thought he was. He is more concerned with the war in Iraq, that he waited five (5) days before he did anything for the crisis that now five states have to face.

On the Monday and Tuesday of last week, when he was advised of the weather conditions in the Gulf, Hurricane winds of 175 miles an hour, He decided to give a speech to the American Legion and a ship yard full of navy personell about "staying the course" in Iraq. He completely ignored the warnings. For your information, Dick Cheney and Condeleesa Rice are still on vacation.

I hope that you wil take the time and questions our government...THEY WORK FOR US.)

What is it? Give me links to why it's good or why it's bad, please. I'd like to know both sides (fairly) then make my own decision.

Here's the original Project for a New American Century

Here's some analysis Exposing the Project for a New American Century

And here's a link to a Google search

In a nutshell, PNAC hijacked the Republican Party and rigged the elections and infiltrated with their illegal 'shadow government' in 2000, and started implementing their pre-conceived illegal invasion plots >>> "Rebuilding America's Defenses" written in September 2000 (yes, a year BEFORE 9/11... why do you think bloggers around the world are so pissed off at Bushco and the PNAC...hmmmmm?)

Here>>>stop ignorance>>> READ>>>read ALL of it>>>,12956,1036687,00.html

If you Yahoo PNAC you will get 842,000 hits. No , American corporate MSM does not report it, yes British and other international sources DO report PNAC. The Brits know far more about the PNAC than we do, and it is very frustrating to the Brits because they want us to know about this American 'shadow government' cabal in the White House.
Let me know if you "get it". If you don't , keep searching and reading till ya do.

Yikes, this needs to be stopped!! Nobody should have control over the weather. I can only imagine the catastrophic consequences. All weather, including hurricanes, has a purpose. This is just how our planet works.

And guys,remember."Some of my best friends were Liberal Arts majors".
