Scooter, Scooter, Scooter-Why Would You Lie? READ ENTIRE INDICTMENT! Know the Facts!

As the entire world knows by now top White House official Irv Lewis 'Scooter' Libby was indicted on five counts including perjury, obstruction of justice and false statements in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. Despite all of the facts, many Conservative pundits have the gall to still try to put their spin on this sad and embarrassing occurrence. They want to give false information regarding the charges....they want to act as if Rove is absolutely in the clear...they want to concentrate on Joe Wilson, which is crazy....and at a time when secret intelligence (spying) is of vital importance for the security of our country, pundits want to minimize the impact of the 'outing' of a CIA Agent. Rush Limbaugh spent much of his radio show today talking about Bill Clinton! What the heck does Bill Clinton have to do with Scooter's charges? So, to make certain that everyone is informed as to the charges against Scooter we are posting Patrick Fitzgerald's website which spells out word for word the entire indictment against Scooter.

There, you will find the actual indictment that the judge and all reporters have received. Print copies. Share them with others. This is public information and it is important that the public is clear as to exactly what the facts are. Then, when you listen to the pundits you'll know how rediculous they sound.

Times: Cheney First Disclosed CIA Official's Name

The New York Times reported late Monday that Vice President Cheney has been directly linked to the so-called "Plamegate" scandal involving the disclosure of the name of Valerie Plame, a CIA officer.
The paper reported that Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis "Scooter" Libby "first learned about the C.I.A. officer at the heart of the leak investigation in a conversation with Mr. Cheney weeks before her identity became public in 2003."
The paper sourced their story to "lawyers involved in the case."
The Times said that notes taken by Libby differ from his own testimony before the grand jury as to when he first learned of Plame's identity.

"The notes, taken by Mr. Libby during the conversation, for the first time place Mr. Cheney in the middle of an effort by the White House to learn about Ms. Wilson’s husband, Joseph C. Wilson IV, who was questioning the administration’s handling of intelligence about Iraq’s nuclear program to justify the war."
Cheney apparently discovered details of Plame's CIA work after he questioned then CIA Director George J. Tenet about her husband, Ambassador Wilson.
But even if Libby or Cheney had disclosed Plame's identity as a CIA officer they may not have committed a crime.
"Disclosing a covert agent’s identity can be a crime, but only if the person who discloses it knows the agent’s undercover status," the Times said.

Rosa Parks Passes at 92. The Mother of Modern-Day Civil Rights

Most historians date the beginning of the modern civil rights movement in the United States to December 1, 1955. That was the day when an unknown seamstress in Montgomery, Alabama refused to give up her bus seat to a white passenger. This brave woman, Rosa Parks, was arrested and fined for violating a city ordinance, but her lonely act of defiance began a movement that ended legal segregation in America, and made her an inspiration to freedom-loving people everywhere.

Rosa Parks was born Rosa Louise McCauley in Tuskegee, Alabama to James McCauley, a carpenter, and Leona McCauley, a teacher. At the age of two she moved to her grandparents' farm in Pine Level, Alabama with her mother and younger brother, Sylvester. At the age of 11 she enrolled in the Montgomery Industrial School for Girls, a private school founded by liberal-minded women from the northern United States. The school's philosophy of self-worth was consistent with Leona McCauley's advice to "take advantage of the opportunities, no matter how few they were."

Opportunities were few indeed. "Back then," Mrs. Parks recalled in an interview, "we didn't have any civil rights. It was just a matter of survival, of existing from one day to the next. I remember going to sleep as a girl hearing the Klan ride at night and hearing a lynching and being afraid the house would burn down." In the same interview, she cited her lifelong acquaintance with fear as the reason for her relative fearlessness in deciding to appeal her conviction during the bus boycott. "I didn't have any special fear," she said. "It was more of a relief to know that I wasn't alone."

After attending Alabama State Teachers College, the young Rosa settled in Montgomery, with her husband, Raymond Parks. The couple joined the local chapter of the NAACP and worked quietly for many years to improve the lot of African-Americans in the segregated south.

"I worked on numerous cases with the NAACP," Mrs. Parks recalled, "but we did not get the publicity. There were cases of flogging, peonage, murder, and rape. We didn't seem to have too many successes. It was more a matter of trying to challenge the powers that be, and to let it be known that we did not wish to continue being second-class citizens."

The bus incident led to the formation of the Montgomery Improvement Association, led by the young pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The association called for a boycott of the city-owned bus company. The boycott lasted 382 days and brought Mrs. Parks, Dr. King, and their cause to the attention of the world. A Supreme Court Decision struck down the Montgomery ordinance under which Mrs. Parks had been fined, and outlawed racial segregation on public transportation.

In 1957, Mrs. Parks and her husband moved to Detroit, Michigan where Mrs. Parks served on the staff of U.S. Representative John Conyers. The Southern Christian Leadership Council established an annual Rosa Parks Freedom Award in her honor.

After the death of her husband in 1977, Mrs. Parks founded the Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self-Development. The Institute sponsors an annual summer program for teenagers called Pathways to Freedom. The young people tour the country in buses, under adult supervision, learning the history of their country and of the civil rights movement. President Clinton presented Rosa Parks with the Congressional Medal of Freedom in 1995.

When asked if she was happy living in retirement, Rosa Parks replied, "I do the very best I can to look upon life with optimism and hope and looking forward to a better day, but I don't think there is any such thing as complete happiness. It pains me that there is still a lot of Klan activity and racism. I think when you say you're happy, you have everything that you need and everything that you want, and nothing more to wish for. I haven't reached that stage yet."

Mrs. Parks spent her last years living quietly in Detroit, where she died in 2005 at the age of 92.

OPINION: If Only I Had The Money-I'd Start My OWN Political Party!

As I watch the news on a daily basis, which I have become somewhat addicted to since 9/11, I can't help but to sit back and wish that I was rich. I don't have to be Bill Gates or Donald Trump rich. I just wish I was rich enough to start my own NEW political party. Why you may ask? Because I am absolutely embarassed to consider myself a Democrat, and totally against the majority of the philosophies of the Republicans. Now days, if you're not for one, then you're automatically considered to be a follower of the other. I, and I am growing to learn, many, many others do not fall into either of these two political categories. Sure, you say well, there's the Independent or the Green parties. Frankly, they both seemed a bit weird to me. I definitely could not follow them. So let's look at what we have.

We have the Republicans: A politically savvy group of people who seem to be very power hungry. A group whose primary desire seems to be to take over everything. Seems to derives from a very pompous egotistical attitude that they are the greatest and most intellectually inclined...and everyone else is not only beneath them, but less intelligent, less intellectual, even less patriotic (they're so savvy that they strategically make you think that if you're against them, then you're against America). The Republicans seem to be a party filled with inner contradiction. On one side, they are super pro-life. At the same time, they're super pro-war! How is that mentally possible. How can a person's mind and heart care about life so deeply that they will do everything thinkable to protect the embryo, (which I commend that desire) but at the same time, be so willing and eager to send our young men and women (other people's sons and daughters) to war to possibly be killed, tortured, at least mamed and their lives destroyed. Are they emphatic about saving the embryo so they can raise up a new army 18 years from now to fight in Iraq? (We'll probably still be there). It's weird.

The Republicans seem to be a party made up of liars, conivers, schemers and law breakers. They'll lie to accomplish whatever their goal is at the time. And then, even after it's proven to be a lie, Republican followers go on with an ''s still ok' attitude. It's weird. The Republicans seem to care only about the rich, the Haliburtons, the opportunity to make their super rich base just richer. They are commited to everything except the concerns of the middle and lower class citizens of America. It actually feels like they are systematically doing little things to smother out the middle class. As if they want this country to be a two class system. The rich and the poor. It's weird. It seems like a lot of the Republican citizens in the middle and lower economic status have been strong supporters of the party and followers of the lies for one main reason. FEAR! The devistation of 9/11 shook up our entire country. Some folks are so afraid that they needed 'John Wayne' to come to the resue. It seems like they would like to see us just go and nuke everyone who is not 'in-line' with us. It's weird. Their answer to everything is to just send more troops, as if the lives of our young sons and daughters are totally expendable. (But don't forget...they're suppose to be pro-life).

I could go on about the war but, even if I didn't concentrate on the sending of our troops to Iraq as a main issue, I still have to pay attention to the other goings on in the Republican party. For one, they could care less about the economic condition of average Americans. They could care less that gas prices are unaffordable, that heating gas prices are going up 45%. That illegals are taking jobs that are needed by average Americans. (sometimes I forget a lot of the illegals work for the super rich at super cheap, below minimum wages...lawn care, nannies, field workers, assembly, etc.) Also, day after day another Republican is being accused of doing something illegal (Frist, DeLay, Rove
etc.). I think about how the great Colin Powell was so hurt and crushed by his own party for being used as a pawn in the con game, that he chose to quit. A great man quit serving our country! That's so sad. Colin's son was so mad he even quit HIS gravy job as head of the FCC.

I watch how there seems to actually be two seperate groups of Republicans. Those who have legitimate views and ideas, which they feel are best for the country and the world, and that's their right. Then there's the other group of Conservatives who are more driven by what they call 'the movement'(dedicated to Republicans taking over everything). What's absolutely weird is to watch these two groups in action, particularly the 'movementeers' which are rallied through the 'movementeer' talk show hosts and media. These are your Hannity's, Laura Ingrams, Ann Coulters, Rush's, Bill Kristols and the like. This group is so dedicated to 'the movement' that they will do anything and everything in their power to crush, smother and destroy ANYONE who is in disagreement with their views...even their own constituents! It's weird. Look at what they've done to folks like Richard Wright, O'Neil, Joe Wilson...they hate Voinovich now. And now they've added Senator Dewine to their hate list. And these are ALL FELLOW REPUBLICANS! It's weird. Now, since they aren't absolutely positive that Harriet Miers is for 'the movement', they hate her. And to top it all off, they are slowly but surely coming to the realization that President Bush is making his decisions based on his own ideas and views...NOT FOR THE MOVEMENT! And if they could...the 'movementeers' would squash him next! (he'd better watch it) It's almost funny to watch...but at the same time, it's actually very sad.

I could go on and on about other things I disagree with the Republicans about but I'll just go to the Democrats now and talk about what they are all about................Bare with me a minute here.........I'm thinking............wait,! The Democratics aren't about ANYTHING ! It it so sad for me to have to say that what had been my party throughout my life has absolutely no agenda whatsoever. NOTHING. What are they for? What are they against? Who the heck knows? Do they? Does Hillary? (and I like Hillary) So nowdays, if I say I'm a Democrat, I'm really saying that I'm for NOTHING! This is so sad. It's like the Dems are totally afraid to have a view. The only thing they are, is against Bush! That's it! That's weird.

So I watch this stuff, day after day and just fantasize about starting my own political party. I'd call it 'The Realist Party'. If I only had the money, it would be simple to do. I would take the good that the Dems used to be about and combine it with the little good that does exist in the Conservative camp...tweek things a bit, add a little essence (I like Emeril too) and BAM! We'd have ourselves a winner. A winner for America. A winner for the world. Hmmm...If.....

Bush Supporter & Talk Show Host Ann Coulter says Bush 'boozing it up!'.

With all that the Republican Party has been going through lately...accusations of outing a CIA spy; Bill Frist being accused of wrongdoings in the stock exchange arena; Tom Delay having to answer to charges of corruption; Carl Rove having to appear yet again before the authorities for the continued investigation into his wrong doings; the lowest approval ratings in Pres. Bush's term; the response of millions of Conservatives who are disgusted with the selection of Ms. Harriett Miers as a Supreme Court Judge; and now...the very spokepeople in the media who are the driving forces of furthering the Conservative 'movement' have become so angry with President Bush's selection (and non-participation in the 'movement') that they have turned from super supporters to just plain super rude....AGAINST THEIR OWN! Conservative talk radio has been in a tailspin as the Republican Party unfolds. During the Michael Medved radio show today it was reported that reknowned author, talk show guest and Conservative pundit Ann Coulter stated to her constituents that '30 years ago, when the Conservatives were planning to take over the courts, George W. Bush was too busy boozing it up!' That's an incredible statement coming from one of the most vocal conservative spokepeople in America! (Guess if you're not for 'the movement'...then you're out...even if you're the President! It's really funny to watch and at the same time...very sad!

POLITICS: Bush: 'God Told Me To Invade Iraq, Afghanistan'

(Democracy Now)
As President Bush announces his renewed war on what he calls radical Islam, a new BBC series is revealing new details about President Bush's own perceived religious mission. According to the BBC, Bush told Palestinian ministers in 2003 that God had told him to invade Afghanistan and Iraq - and to create a Palestinian State. In the BBC program, Palestinian Prime Minister Abu Mazen and foreign minister Nabil Shaath describe their first meeting with President Bush in June 2003. Shaath quotes Bush as saying at the time QUOTE "I'm driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, "George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan." And I did, and then God would tell me, "George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq …" And I did. And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, "Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East." And by God I'm gonna do it,'" Shaath quoted Bush as saying. The White House denied Bush made the comments, calling them "absurd."

WORLD NEWS: Over 30,000 feared dead in Pakistan Earthquake-Where's the American media?

At least 30,000 men, women and children are feared killed and tens of thousands more injured in what has been declared the worse earthquake in Pakistan history. The deadly quake will reportedly leave 2.5 million people needing shelter after the monterous 7.6 earthquake destroyed the Pakistan-Indian border. The damage spans at least 250 miles from Jalalbad in Afghanistan to Srinagar in northern India.
But where is the American media coverage. We have to flip through all of the cable news channels non-stop to catch even a quick blurb about this catastrophe. Why? Don't we care about the lives and horrific deaths of others. We expect other countries to care about us when catastrophes occur here in America, and the world outpouring of care is always tremendous toward us. But it is a sad day when tens of thousands abroad can be killed by a natural disaster and we just yawn about it.

Special Peace Song CD now available on over 125 music sites worldwide !
Cleveland, OHIO (USA) Oct. 4 , 2005 "WOW'...'BEAUTIFUL'...' possibly the most important musical message of today'! These are a few of the responses regarding the hot new Maxi-Single CD recording entitled GOD BLESS THE WORLD-WHILE YOU BLESS AMERICA (aka... Not Just America) written, produced and performed by Cleveland, Ohio native GREG JONES. With a We are the World 'feel', this special release is a unique blend of adult contemporary, easy listening, soul and inspiration combined with a powerful message of peace and harmony. In fact, the special CD was recorded on the same mixing board which was owned by Kenny Rogers and used by Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson and others for the 'We are the World' project. A section of the song's lyrics reads 'God bless the world...not just America...God Bless the whole wide our kids can live in harmony...God bless the world'! "It is very important that our leaders realize the importance of desiring that our entire world be blessed, here in America, in the Sudan, Europe, Israel, Iraq...everywhere! If the world is not blessed, we're all in trouble", states Jones regarding his motivation for this powerful musical message. Jones recently signed an internet distribution deal with FineTunes (Germany) which will promote the special release for legal downloads on sites such as ITunes, MusicLoad, Sony Connect, NuFonix, EMusic, Beatport, OD2, MusicMatch, Napster and more. The anthem is now available on over 125 music sites worldwide! The Maxi-Single, released by ORVILLE RECORDS is garnering exciting response through top digital music websites in the U.S, Britain, Finland, Germany and recently entered the Australian Easy Listening Top 100 Music Charts at #8 with a bullet!

Commercial radio is fast catching wind of this special release and is next in line while experts are declaring GOD BLESS THE WORLD-While You Bless America a future classic! With over 200 unreleased songs under his belt, songwriter Greg Jones explains his inspiration for this special recording. 'I would turn on the news each day and see how so many world leaders resort to war as a means of settling conflict, as if human life is expendable. It would make me sick. They always say that if you want to see a change you have to do something, whatever you can, even when you're just one person. I've always been inspired by the powerful messages of greats like John Lennon, Bono and Bob Dylan so I did what I could do. I wrote a song. I'm so very thankful for the response worldwide that the anthem is receiving. It's exciting how so many people have embraced the song and the message ... and the snowball effect has been incredible!. For a limited time we are offering the anthem as a free download in honor of all who were killed in Iraq and in recognition of International Day of Peace September 21, 2005.
