I'm asking how many do we need to get this passed? Thank you for the info.

every Dem and 3 Republicans in the Intl Relations Commitee.
We have most of the Dems and 1 Republican.
Getting those not on the committee to cosponsor helps influence those on the commitee.

The US government in making a total A*ss out of themselves.
The world is watching to see if Congress lets Bush get away with mass murder!
We have 9/11,War on a LIE,and now it appears an questionable drowning of people in New Orleans!
All GOP's are blocking investigations in all three,and just by doing this there saying Bush is guilty.
America isn't asking them to judge,just let the investigations take place!

History is going to mark these men as Hitlers accomplisses.
I feel sorry for there children,as the US may not welcome there children and grandkids.
But it appears these men only think of themselves!

We have three air traffic controllers that smashed every plane and killed thousands and thousands of people,and there still at the helm.
Every occupation in America would suspend them pending an investigation.
When did a law pass that politicians were above the LAW'S of the land!
This is a total disgrace to AMERICA!

Does this answer your question.

Bush gets away with this because people refuse to believe the fact that he and his administration were complicit in the 9/11 and now New Orleans terror attacks (the levee was sabotaged). This ignorance about the true source of terror attacks, allows Bush to be effectively above the law by cloaking even his crimes in the bogus "War on Terror". The other reason he gets away with this, is that people don't know the constitution and don't take it, or its defense, seriously. As long as Americans remain ignorant of the federal government's involvement in terror attacks on U.S. soil, we'll insure for ourselves, a bleak Orwellian future.

... tell that to Bush and to Jose Padilla. Even the U.S. Supreme Court seems quite willing to dodge the issue when they can.

What are the chances of getting 2 more republicans?...and the rest of the democrats?

...how hard we try. Let's let the pundits predict (they never would have predicted we'd get one Republican)and let's focus on DOING.

Is there anyway we could get a list of the Republicans who are leaning toward supporting this resolution or who may have guts enough to do whats right and support it like Rep. James Leach?

Then we could focus our efforts on those who may be willing.

My rep is Patrick Mchenry in NC and I have contacted him but I am sure Hell would freeze over before he supported it.

Katherine Harris is on the IR Committee? She's a international embarrassment!

AMEN, she helped rig the Florida fiasco in 2000.

It doesn't hurt to bombard her with faxes anyway to get off her idiotic ego trip.

But other then that, blast every member of the IR republicans and show them the constant proof of us being lied to. Use the CNN video segments from "Dead Wrong" and hammer it home.

Bush's Approval Rating in Zogby Poll Falls to 41%, All-Time Low
Sept. 8 (Bloomberg) -- President George W. Bush's overall job approval rating in the Zogby America poll slumped to a record low as three-fifths of Americans criticized the government's response to Hurricane Katrina.

Forty-one percent of respondents in the poll taken Sept. 6- 7gave Bush positive marks for his job performance, down from 45 percent in a July 30 survey and 50 percent in mid-February. Bush got negative marks from 59 percent of respondents, up from 55 percent in July and 50 percent in February in the poll.

The poll showed 60 percent characterized Bush's handling of the hurricane as ``fair'' to ``poor,'' while 36 percent graded his performance ``good'' to ``excellent.'' More than half of those polled -- 53 percent -- said the country is headed in the wrong direction.

``The president has managed to do early in his second term what his father did in just one term: go from record-high approval numbers in the aftermath of 9/11 to his present numbers,'' John Zogby, chief executive of polling company Zogby International, said in a statement.

MINE EYES HAVE SEEN THE GLORY
IN THE COMMING OF THE LORD
HE IS TRAMPLING OUT THE VINTAGE
WHERE THE GRAPES OF WRATH ARE STORED
HE HATH LOOSED THE FATEFULL LIGHTNING
OF HIS TERRIBLE SWIFT SWORD
OUR TRUTH IS MARCHING ON

GLORY,,,,GLORY,,,HALLELUJAH

LET US VOW NOW TO NEVER EVER SURRENDER AS LONG
AS WE POSSESS ANY MEANS WHAT-SO-EVER,,,TO RESIST
LET US AGRESSIVELY RESIST AND IF NEED BE
TO OUR LAST DYING BREATH
FOR THAT BREATH BE OUR LAST
LET IT BE AS FREE MEN
TO THIS END,,,I PLEDGE MY LAST DYING BREATH

It doesn't matter if you are a Democrat or a Republican or if you just don't like Bush. These people need to accept their part of the blame and stop passing the buck.

It's a shame the media doesn't report these facts.

Subject: Last Fri. Bush urged mandatory evacuation

Our Constitution provides autonomy for the State governors. They are the only ones now that can mobilize their National Guards within their States to assist in their States, except in the extreme situation where they themselves are defying a Supreme Court order (like 1954 in Little Rock, Arkansas)

President Bush urged Gov. Blanco on Friday last to order a mandatory evacuation of New Orleans. She called for a "voluntary" evacuation on Saturday afternoon, saying the President Bush had urged her to evacuate. (I assume that was so she could blame him if t! he storm passed them by) Bush declared Louisiana and Mississippi disaster areas of national emergencies two days BEFORE the hurricane hit. That is unprecedented as far as I know, but by doing that a lot of FEMA supplies and personnel could be prepositioned in those States to assist. (But he first had to get the Governors to request that he make these declarations.)

On Saturday night the Mayor of New Orleans was still dithering with lawyers about their liability if he should order the evacuation of New Orleans be mandatory. He and the lawyers decided to have people sign forms refusing mandatory evacuation, and then Sunday morning he finally ordered mandatory evacuation.

However, the Mayor of New Orleans didn't commandeer school buses and start hauling people out. He pretty much left everybody to fend for themselves, as far as I know.

The country knows that New Orleans is on! e of our most corrupt cities, and Louisiana one of our most corrupt States.

New Orleans has a Democrat Mayor, a Democrat City Council, a Democrat Chief of Police -- Louisiana a Democrat Attorney General, a Democrat Governor, a Democrat Lt. Governor, 24 of 39 Louisiana State Senators are Democrat, 67 of 105 Louisiana State House Representatives are Democrat, there's a Democrat Representative in the House from New Orleans, and one of two Senators in the Senate is a Democrat (The only Republican Senator was just elected last year).

Governor Blanco did not ask for National Guard troops from outside Louisiana to be prepositioned before the hurricane, and then was out of communication with her own troops after the hurricane because of the disaster taking down all the communication systems.

She did not request assistance from the feder! al government for additional troops from outside Louisiana till Wednesday. (Democrats are always very reluctant to use military, especially in situations that involve African-Americans which composed 68% of the population of New Orleans, but part of that was due to her not being able to get reports of conditions in New Orleans due to communications being down.) Today, Friday, the National Guard rolled into New Orleans.

Many people in New Orleans didn't leave because they had property they wanted to protect from criminals, because they had elderly or sick relatives or pets that they stayed to care for, or because their welfare or Social Security checks were due to come on Sept 1.

Taking all these and other things into consideration, I think we need to make new law allowing the federal government to assume the leadership role in natural or terrorist disasters. We can't count on ! each State having a "Giuliani" around to take charge.

There were disaster plans on the boards. Those plans called for mandatory evacuation of New Orleans if threatened by a Category 4 or 5 hurricane. The Governor and Mayor simply didn't do what they were supposed to do in a timely manner, despite urging from the President.

We also need a plan for gathering up the poor and the infirm and getting them out with their ID, and for guarding their property in their absence as best we can, although the latter part of that is a real challenge. We need a system for canceling any checks that are in the mail and reissuing them in a timely fashion to shelters.

Certainly we need better communications networking with people on the ground in the disaster areas. Bunkers for command and communications need to b! e built with generators and satellite communications in some areas that are most likely to be wiped out.

Just as the feds have been for some time now not insuring people who build on the Mississippi River flood plain, but are rebuilding their homes above the flood zones -- so do we need to recognize that New Orleans cannot continue to live below Subject: Last Fri. Bush urged mandatory evacuation

PLEASE PASS THIS ON - PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW WHERE THE BLAME LIES FOR THE AWFUL FIASCO IN NEW ORLEANS CAUSING SUCH SUFFERING FOR ITS PEOPLE!
BLESSINGS!

KATRINA TIMELINE
Comment on the timeline here.

Friday, August 26
GOV. KATHLEEN BLANCO DECLARES STATE OF EMERGENCY IN LOUISIANA: [Office of the Governor]

GULF COAST STATES REQUEST TROOP ASSISTANCE FROM PENTAGON: At a 9/1 press conference, Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré, commander, Joint Task Force Katrina, said that the Gulf States began the process of requesting additional forces on Friday, 8/26. [DOD]

Saturday, August 27
5AM — KATRINA UPGRADED TO CATEGORY 3 HURRICANE [CNN]

GOV. BLANCO ASKS BUSH TO DECLARE FEDERAL STATE OF EMERGENCY IN LOUISIANA: “I have determined that this incident is of such severity and magnitude that effective response is beyond the capabilities of the State and affected local governments, and that supplementary Federal assistance is necessary to save lives, protect property, public health, and safety, or to lessen or avert the threat of a disaster.

This smells like a Karl Rove strategy.
The opportunistic PIG !
The Repugs like to scream "Blame game" at the first peep of any criticism. Yet, they will turn a blind eye and encourage their little lobotomized lemmings to do the dirty work.

It reminds one of the Rove tactic on Ann Richards .....flyers full of lies about her placed on the cars of people while they were attending church .... now there is a good use of church property!

I'm sick of this sh*t.

This proves Karl Rove's feel good "talking points" can't save their asses....

http://www.dhs.gov/dhspublic/theme_home2.jsp

Louisiana according to the law can not cover national disasters and is not expected to, when it is outside capability. Not anything you can do about that.

Bush admin takes the fall once again, and for the Iraq war based on lies which helped ensure Katrina's deaths. And in that note, indictments are coming down on the DSM/Plame case soon....

Doug E.

What about Ron Paul? He sounds like he might be ready to sign on. ( http://www.house.gov/paul/congrec/congrec2005/cr090805.htm ) Anybody know how he stands?

...said yes yet, but it makes a lot of sense to ask him to -- politely but en masse!
