Get Outta My Life, George!

Geez George, How many times must a girl say it? Go away! Go back to Crawford and stay there.

But we are supposed to believe most Americans want illegal immigrants in the country..

The illegal immigrants aren't afraid of Bush-they protest in this governments policies in plain sight-while Americans can't get off the couch.

Why not? Isn't what is left of America worth fighting for? If it is not, blame these guys:

From Stonefruit 911 was an inside job - part 2 Good citations in the Part 1 and Part 2 articles.

You can't say these guys are always sneaky. Sometimes they telegraph their intentions for all the world to see. Most nefarious among these communication is the manifesto of the Project for a New American Century, an ad hoc think tank established right before Bush's appointment, which included many current and former administration officials and prominent neo-conservatives such as:

Elliott Abrams, Midge Decter

Paula Dobriansky, Frank Gaffney

Steve Forbes, Gary Bauer

Aaron Friedberg, William J. Bennett

Francis Fukuyama, Jeb Bush

Dick Cheney, Eliot A. Cohen

Fred C. Ikle, Donald Kagan

Zalmay Khalilzad, I. Lewis Libby

Norman Podhoretz, Dan Quayle

Peter W. Rodman, Stephen P. Rosen

Henry S. Rowen, Donald Rumsfeld

This needs to get more play, a hat tip to Nancy! 3 abused by priests file suits claiming illegal GOP meeting

Columbus - Victims of sexual abuse by priests have filed two lawsuits accusing Speaker Jon Husted and seven other House Republicans of holding an illegal meeting before a House committee passed a hotly contested sex-offender bill this week.

In an ironic twist to a story that has made national headlines, one of the suits has been assigned to a Franklin County judge whom Husted and other GOP officials have sought to impeach for his sentencing of a child molester.

The suit was filed Thursday in Columbus by Dan Frondorf and Christy Miller, members of the Survivors Network of Those Abused By Priests. It was assigned by blind draw to Judge John Connor, a Democrat. A second suit was filed by SNAP member Claudia Vercellotti in Toledo

Neorepublicans, they always want it both more example of a failure of ideology.

Growth in federal spending unchecked

WASHINGTON — Federal spending is outstripping economic growth at a rate unseen in more than half a century, provoking some conservatives to complain that government under Republican control has gotten too big.

The federal government is currently spending 20.8 cents of every $1 the economy generates, up from 18.5 cents in 2001, White House budget documents show. That's the most rapid growth during one administration since Franklin Roosevelt.

Zarqawi 'replaced as unrest head' Dubya's imaginary friend gets replaced...

Jordanian al-Qaeda militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has been forced to step down as leader of a coalition of Iraqi militants, a leading Islamist claims.

Huthaifa Azzam, whose father was a mentor of Osama Bin Laden, said Zarqawi was replaced by an Iraqi two weeks ago.

Hat tip to Dave from England. The Guardian How we move ever closer to becoming a totalitarian state

The Prime Minister claims to be defending liberty but a barely noticed Bill will rip the heart out of parliamentary democracy.

A Quote from Tony Blair: Tony Blair in The Observer:

'In theory, traditional court processes and attitudes to civil liberties could work. But the modern world is different from the world for which these court processes were designed.'

Apparently, Tony thinks democracy is only good in theory-not in practice. No wonder he and Dubya get on so well...they think democracy is outdated.

From Wired system breakdown

Mapping out a conspiracy theory requires a frightening amount of vision and the ability to put everyone in the right place at the right time. Using the available data and occasionally making some logical leaps, there are a handful of unofficial explanations for how the attacks happened.

The first is simple governmental incompetence. It’s rather mundane, as far as conspiracy theories go, but is decidedly reflective of everyday government behavior. One need look no further than the bungled response to Hurricane Katrina to see just how badly the feds can screw up, even when all signs point to imminent disaster. The incompetence theory looks good on the surface—it’s easy to understand and doesn’t require a lot of speculation. At the same time, it’s intensely troubling, because if it’s true, that means that no system or organization is reliable—from the intelligence community and the military to our multi-billion dollar air-defense system to simple airport security measures

Yahoo News Republicans Increasingly Critical of Bush

"It's open season on him. George Bush has lost trust on too many issues," said presidential historian Thomas E. Cronin of Colorado College. "We saw it happen with Johnson, we saw it with Nixon. And now, sadly, we're seeing it with Bush."

Wait until they find out how responsible (or irresponsible, as the case may be) for what happened to America on 9/11. Let us hope we aren't attacked again soon,Keith Oblermann's timeline points out how when poll numbers drop, the "risk" of terrorism increases...Hmm.

Prissy will be doing a lot more about 9/11 in weeks to come. There is simply too much physical evidence to ignore. A proper investigation certainly should have been done-but you know why it wasn't.

It is the belief here at The Prissy Patriot, that it will be 9/11 which brings down this cabal. The other lies seem to be of little consequence to most of our representatives. But when the clamor grows loud, they will have no choice but to heed the call...

Obviously, Dana Rohrabacher isn't telling all he knows...more later. Let us hope Rohrabacher is on Prosecutor Fitzgerald's witness list!

NY Protest

Flashback from the Boston Globe Agency planned exercise on Sept. 11 built around a plane crashing into a building Link fixed

WASHINGTON In what the government describes as a bizarre coincidence, one U.S. intelligence agency was planning an exercise last Sept. 11 in which an errant aircraft would crash into one of its buildings. But the cause wasn't terrorism -- it was to be a simulated accident.

Talk Left Leopold: Fitz Almost Ready for New Indictments LINK FIXED

Leopold writes that Fitz wasn't persuaded by Rove lawyer Luskin's most recent entreaties to avoid indictment, particularly Rove's explanation about his e-mail with Hadley.

Yesterday, I wrote a long legal analysis of Raw Story's report that Rove was responsible for directing Fitz to the 250 pages of e-mails discussed at the Scooter Libby hearing on February 23.

I don't think anyone has posted a transcript of that Feb. 23 hearing -- so here (in pdf-pp) it is. There are some other juicy tidbits disclosed by Libby's lawyers, for any serious Libbyphiles out there.

From ReNew America by Wes Vernon How to handle an inconvenient whistle-blower

A Pentagon official who has been causing much discomfort to powerful people in two administrations has received lucrative job offers. One of them required his presence two states away on the very day he was to testify before Congress on the Able Danger scandal. Coincidence?

Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer is one of the military officers who have said that a secret intelligence unit named Able Danger identified Sept. 11 mastermind Mohammad Atta (living the U.S.) as a terrorist fully one year before attacks on New York and Washington. The warnings were ignored. Shaffer is speaking out. That has earned him the enmity of powerful figures in the Clinton Administration (on whose watch the warnings were first issued), the Bush administration (which did not want to start its White House tenure by rattling cages that would have prompted Clinton acolytes to holler "partisanship"), and the 9/11 commission which ignored the Able Danger information.

So there are lots of people who want to sweep the scandal under the rug, and who wish Shaffer and his whistle-blowing colleague, Navy Capt. Scott Philpott would shut up and get out of the way. But they won't. So they have been harassed. This is reminiscent of Harry Truman's admonition that if you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.

The bravery exhibited by Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer, Capt. Scott Philpott, Sibol Edmunds, Russ Tice, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts and others, does not go unnoticed or unappreciated. The Prissy Patriot proudly supports truth-tellers in government. Please give to the defense fund for Lt. Col Shaffer, if you can. (See Able Danger link in side bar) Even if its just a few bucks, it will be appreciated.

These are the true American patriots of our time.
