Prissy Announces Paul Hackett for Congress-Ohio's 2nd Congressional District- August 2, 2005 Election-GOP Threatens to "Bury" Him for Bush Comment

From the Washington Post: GOP Says It Will 'Bury' Name-Calling Candidate

Note to GOP from Prissy- Attacking a clean Veteran who has admirably served his country makes you all look like bullies ganging up on the new kid....just because he looks like he could kick the crap out of one of your biggest, bestest bullies.

As much as it may gall the GOP, his time was served honestly (unlike some others we know holding office). Ha...Major Hackett is sooooo very clean and the filthy brand of politics supported and funded by the GOP feels deeply threatened. They do need a good scrubbing...The GOP knows jeopardy may yet occur; he and the others who will step forward to take their place will win. Americans are tired of elites who do not do their job of properly representing We the People....That also applies to most of the DNC.

Oh my, it makes them so, so angry that Major Hackett is so, so clean! You must make the space to bury your own, you shall be needing it soon.....Do you hear that sound? It is Prissy laughing with mirth....

Excerpt: Hackett told USA Today that Bush's taunting line, "Bring 'em on!" was "the most incredibly stupid comment I've ever heard a president of the United States make." He also told the newspaper that, while he was willing to put his life on the line for the president, "I've said that I don't like the son-of-a-[expletive] that lives in the White House."

(Prissy concurs!)

Both the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the National Republican Congressional Committee have bought TV time for commercials over the weekend. "He called the commander in chief a son-of-a-[expletive]," said NRCC spokesman Carl Forti. "We decided to bury him."

"We decided to bury him." Like as in the mob kind of bury? My, my threatening soldiers whom have served with honor....Prissy says that takes quite some nerve.

(Bold by Prissy-This is a classic example of Prissy's "antler theory" coming into play-someone needs to inform the $limy GOP'ers having a big rack does not insure victory.)

Hackett, hoping to capitalize on the widespread disarray in the scandal-plagued Ohio GOP, remains unapologetic about his characterization of the president. "I said it. I meant it. I stand by it," he said in a phone interview. "In this district, we need more straight-talking, straight-shooting politicians." In every district!-PP

Prissy agrees we do indeed need politicians who are able to think with an unclouded mind. Obviously, Paul Hackett is tough enough for the job. Anyone willing to not eat his words, unlike the rest of the worlds cowards who bow down to the rapidly losing power GOP, is Prissy's kind of American. Prissy believes Hackett and others like him will work to return America's credibility and standing in the world. The ones in office now have nearly destroyed it; Prissy and many others deeply resent this un-American disease which has spread throughout the GOP...

Prissy hooked him up a couple of weeks ago, with some folks who will help his campaign...not that he needs Prissy's help, but extra cash is always good. Especially when one is running for an office against a proven corrupt GOP machine.... Best of Luck to Major Hackett, may the proven patriot win....

Prissy gives the Republicans credit where credit is due...they ran a highly effective smear campaign against the lame Kerry campaign, they hate government only when it wants regulations so that you and I have clean air and drinking water, such regulations interfere with industry profits, you know....

The Cincinnati Post and Dayton Daily News Endorse Hackett for 2nd District Seat

Prissy's Hot Links of the Day Bolton- He may be appointed, but the People say he shall not last..... OJ Simpson Caught Pirating Satellite TV Signals PP says "A wife beater who steals? Who would ever guess?",13319,FL_cancer_072605,00.html? Cancer Linked to Nerve Agent....thanks for supporting the troops Dubya and friends! More evidence emerges that Rumsfeld's Pentagon is "running" Al Qaeda-affiliated terrorist organizations.

Prissy will withhold comment on the above article. It certainly is interesting...

Because this is the Sunday Edition of The Prissy Patriot, Prissy will share a relevant email from a friend. Prissy does not assume all her readers share her faith, but will be curious about others.

I came in to work and someone had sent an email to me with the usual Christians are right everyone else is wrong. America has to get back to its Christian roots etc....

I'm devoutly Christian so people assume I am in agreement with that kind of thinking ! People, other people's faith does not in any way threaten mine !!

I pointed out this part of the Constitution :

I think it is safe to say that I'm pro-Christian and pro-American. But did you know that Article VI of the Constitution itself says "The Senators and Representatives before mentioned and Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation to support this Constitution, but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.

I think I made them mad........

Prissy says what a breath of fresh air, isn't she precious!

The Prissy Patriot has been translated into 15 languages, including Greek, Italian, Korean and Estonian. Prissy would like to say Thank You for reading!

25 Things You Need to Know About Your President and His Men

But today Prissy only has time for ten! Prissy will be working on anti-war,pro-troop activities until Sunday!

I'm with Dubya on this one...some things are hard! Today, when Prissy sat down to make the list, it just went on and on....Note: This is not a smear list, this is a fact list. Prissy is against smear. Humor and Satire is not smear, it is fun and it keeps us all mentally healthy. Prissy gives you news, humor and the facts.

It has come to Prissy's attention some Washington Post readers are not interested in humor, news or the facts. And some are very interested. To them, Welcome. But if one doesn't like it, Click Away. It will not hurt Prissy's feelings if you are not open to facts and new news sources, she actually expects it.

Some are bound to be upset because finally, the Post is starting to tell the truth again. And you know, the anti-Bush policy people far outweigh the supporters-at least in July 2005. That is not the perception one may receive from the MSM.

Friends, They shall all know soon enough. Prissy feels they are trying to prepare the public with some facts, so it will not come as such a surprise when it all goes tumbling down... (not to worry, there are still many legitimate folks in our government)

Here we go:

1. It is not a secret that Mr. Bush is a recovering alcoholic. As a person who admits (and here Prissy will be generous)that he "drank hard" for twenty or so years, it would be difficult to believe there are not some cognitive impairment or problems involved with judgment and perception skill. Thus the extremely poor planning skills exhibited in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Physically fit is not cognitively fit. This is common in long-term alcoholics. From Uncle Sam himself

2. Good enough for him, but you do your duty soldier...The records show that Bush performed 25 days of weekend and active duty between May 27, 1972, and May 26, 1973. The minimum annual requirement for National Guard service in 1972 was one weekend a month -- 24 days -- and 15 days of active duty -- the same basic requirement that exists today, Lieutenant Colonel Coennie Woods of the National Guard Bureau said in an interview. George W Bush did not fulfill the basic requirements according to this statement. Prissy reminds you that Dan Rather was burnt not because of false statements, but because of falsified documents.

Let us not forget the Why Dubya is a chickenhawk excerpt:

George W. Bush is a chickenhawk. He is A) famous and B) supports the war efforts but C) did not really serve in the military. He was shoehorned into the Texas Air National Guard to dodge the draft. He served only three years of a six-year commitment, then went AWOL, essentially deserting. Now he has sent thousands of troops overseas to die for Big Oil, which is likely the greatest sin this country has ever produced.

3. The previous posts sign referring to Dick Cheney's five deferments from Vietnam is no joke. Cheney, when asked about them boasted, "he had other priorities". Priorities such as getting his wife pregnant to escape another era's corporate sponsored war without end....

4. Then there is Douglas Feith who has been accused of mishandling classified information. Gen. Tommy Franks in Bob Woodward's Plan of Attack, in which Franks calls Feith "the f**king stupidest guy on the face of the earth."

Now, now, General..not so fast; with these spoiled boys that honor could be quite a contest... and this excerpt from Source Watch

Douglas Feith, along with Richard Perle and other noted neo-cons, called for the removal of Saddam Hussein in a 1996 round table report A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm. [1] ( The removal was considered a means for foiling Syria's regional ambitions.

This report was prepared more that five years before the attack on the World Trade Center. The report describes regime change in Iraq as an important Israeli strategic objective.


20 November 2002 Flashback WAR, WHATEVER Bush aide: Inspections or not, we'll attack Iraq Exclusive By Paul Gilfeather, Whitehall Editor GEORGE Bush's top security adviser last night admitted the US would attack Iraq even if UN inspectors fail to find weapons.

Dr Richard Perle stunned MPs (and Prissy) by insisting a "clean bill of health" from UN chief weapons inspector Hans Blix would not halt America's war machine.

Did not see this war planner quoted anywhere in American news, during that time, did you. Shame on the MSM. Excerpt from Wikipedia:

When discussing his new book "Battle Ready" co-authored with retired general Anthony Zinni, author Tom Clancy stated that he almost came to blows with Perle. According to Clancy: "He was saying how (Secretary of State) Colin Powell was being a wuss because he was overly concerned with the lives of the troops," Clancy said. "And I said, 'Look ..., he's supposed to think that way!' And Perle didn't agree with me on that. People like that worry me." (Dubuque Telegraph Herald, June 13, 2004. Associated Press)

Indeed, Mr. Clancy- those without conscience who are making decisions which have consequences all over the entire world should frighten us all....

John Bolton. He is an angry, vicious provocateur who has no boundaries of civility whatsoever...Dubya wants him for US Ambassador to the United Nations...this proves he too has a circuitry wiring problem inside..look for his picture and watch Mr.Bolton speak to the other UN members, he nearly froths at the mouth in his is an embarrasing moment to be an American in that room..Dubya, bully that he is, wants to ram through Boltons' appointment. He cares not what you or I think...

Very diplomatic, Mr. Bolton. An ex claimed he used to go to Plato's Retreat...a sex club in the 70's. Strangers had sex with one another on wrestling mats. Yuk.

7. Elliott Abrams (b. January 24, 1948), a lawyer, is a member of the administration of President George W. Bush, During Bush's first term in office, he was appointed the post of Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director on the National Security Council for Near East and North African Affairs. At the start of the president's second term (February, 2005), Abrams was promoted to be his deputy national security adviser, responsible for advancing Bush's strategy of advancing democracy abroad. A leading neoconservative, Abrams' appointment by the White House on December 2, 2002 was considered highly controversial due to his involvement in the Iran-Contra Affair, over which he subsequently pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts of unlawfully withholding information from Congress.

In 1997, Abrams published a book, Faith or Fear, which warned American Jews that assimilating within the secular U.S. culture posed the danger of a gradual loss of Jewish identity. (Wikipedia) He has no shame for stirring up rancor in the name of God. Prissy's Jewish friends don't think very highly of this guy's attitude, despite his loud mouth which would like to claim he speaks for all...

Note to Abrams, Jewish folks born in America are Americans.. Iran-Contra affair involvement? And his pentance is mere pittance in accordanc to his deeds....

8.From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Stephen A. Cambone (born 1951) is the United States Under-Secretary of Defense for Intelligence, a post created in March 2003, and of which he was the first occupant. He is said to be very close to Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and, as the Pentagon's top man in intelligence matters, has been directly involved in the organization of the military intelligence-gathering program that allegedly led to the prisoner abuses in the Abu Ghraib Prison in Baghdad, Iraq. He first came to the attention of the public at large during the testimony of Major General Antonio Taguba before the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee, where he contradicted the General's statements about the impropriety of putting military guards under the command of intelligence personnel and interrogators.

9.Larry Franklin (Scary Larry) is said to have passed on a classified Presidential Directive, and possibly other sensitive documents pertaining to US deliberations on foreign policy regarding Iran, to a pro-Israel lobbying group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), who in turn allegedly provided the information to Israel. FBI sources have indicated that the year-long investigation was actively underway when the CBS News story broke.

According to FBI surveillance tapes, Franklin relayed top secret information to Steve Rosen, AIPAC's then policy director, and Keith Weissman, a senior Iran analyst with AIPAC, while at at the Tivoli Restaurant in Arlington, Virginia. On 27 August, the FBI raided the office of AIPAC director of foreign policy issues Steve Rosen, copying his PC's hard drive.

According to the New York Times, Franklin was one of two U.S. officials that held meetings with Iranian dissidents, including arms dealer Manucher Ghorbanifar, a key figure in the Iran-Contra scandal. (Wikipedia)

See about Larry's arrest in previous post.

10. Porter Goss

New CIA Director, Porter Goss, sent a memo to agency employees telling them their job was to "support the administration and its policies."

"As agency employees we do not identify with, support or champion opposition to the administration or its policies," Goss said in the memorandum, which came after several top officers resigned. (bold by Prissy) Even Republicans criticized that choice of words, saying it was crucial for the CIA to retain its objectivity and ability to "speak truth to power." Democrats, noting that Goss until recently was a highly partisan Republican member of the House of Representatives, saw it as part of a disturbing pattern. Alrighty, then...

What is wrong with these guys? Why do they love money more than they love their country? Not one of them is "needy" except spiritually perhaps.... And those who speak out against these policies are not patriots? Your circular logic , gentlemen (and I use the term loosely) is failing to convince....What will you do when the blinders fall from those who used to support you? Do you think they will feel "had"? Remember it has been your policies which told them, violence does not beget violence...and forgotten tyranny begets rebellion.

They will all stand in unison on Dubya's policies, which defy common sense... Now you see why, with these characters in charge go around "creating" wars and reality they believe will coincide with the war...but alas, thousands and thousands of dead later, it did not. Prissy's 4 year-old niece believes with her whole little heart in Santa, but we all know Santa does not actually exist...

Prissy thinks should all of these men ever be held accountable for their actions, they should be fined to pay for this war from their own personal accounts. Then sentenced to a mandatory $7.00 per hour job with no health benefits....forever. If Pete Rose can be banned from baseball for life for betting, surely these draconian cretins should be banned from politics for life. Tell Prissy what you think....

Liberty and Americans; Is Dubya Giving in to the Terrorists?


American civil liberties. That used to be something our country was "big", if one insists upon clinging to them, we are told we are endangering ourselves and others by not giving them up as necessary for "security". ( As per Dubya or DHS?)

When Prissy worked with juvenile girls, she did her share of strip searches..they weren't fun for anyone then, but these girls had been brought to a lock down facility by the police....which isn't quite the same as hopping a plane to go see Auntie M or the subway to work.... See article below: Are Subway Searches Legal?The rules for searching bags. Excerpt: Police officers began conducting random searches on New York City subways last week. Privacy advocates call the New York Police Department's new search policy unconstitutional the executive director of the New York Civil Liberties Union says the group is "looking into litigation." Is baggage screening on the subway legal?

Say what you will, Prissy cannot get used to the idea that this is what has become of America and our civil liberties. We are not free from "search and seizure"......whether you think it may be unreasonable or not. To be expected to "show our papers" and consent to searches.....well, that just smacks of giving up our way of life for Dubya's highly ineffective, War On Terror.

Welcome WP Readers. Feel comfortable at Prissy's Place. She is a true Independent....A fiscally conservative, pro-choice, gun toting, American .

Prissy, as you may suspect from her college major , was not a huge fan of the American Civil Liberties Union......Well, haven't times changed. In years past, some of their previous cases were "out there"...but in the 80's and 90's Americans still had their rights, so I'm sure they were pressed for their existence for a while-which would explain some of the wacked out causes and cases they took on during that time.

Today we need them and other folks who are brave enough to say that without liberty we cease to be America. From Information Clearing House Truth And Freedom, Slip-Sliding Away"

Please tell Prissy you won't give in to terrorism by consenting Dubya's incessant Patriot Act.

If he truly loved American freedom, he wouldn't be so eager for you to submit yours. Dubya and friends do appear to be extremely hypocritical and eurocentristic in both foreign and domestic policy. Policy for YOU and the Others doesn't apply to them....neither do laws or ethics matter to them-look who they hire.

Those they hire seem to have loyalty problems...not to the President, mind you.....


...only to We the People...... AIPAC/Likudnik Larry Franklin Arrested for Espionage on Behalf of Israel. Excerpt:

The FBI arrested Pentagon Iranian analyst Larry Franklin on May 4 for illegally disclosing highly classified information about possible attacks on American forces in Iraq to Steven Rosen and Keith Weissman of the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Israel's principal lobby in the United States. Rosen was AIPA'Cs director of foreign policy issues and Weissman was its senior Middle East analyst until they were recently fired when the FBI investigation got too close for AIPAC's comfort. Franklin, 58, a reserve colonel in the Air Force, was released on $100,000 bond...

Franklin is far from being the only one of Dubya's crew who has a "problem" giving away classified information....but apparently they are too busy accusing people who didn't. (See Sundays' Post-Dodge Ball With Dubya; You're It) It really hurts when the stab in the back comes from a friend. Like Granny says, "With friends like that, who needs enemies?" Why didn't Israel turn him in right away?

HR in House of Dubya

Advance: Colleague of outed agent seeks to 'set the record straight' Haaretz-MK voices doubt immunity law applies to Omri Sharon case - A close ally who doesn't actually work in the White House... or does he? (See Franklin ) Ex-White House aide Fleischer eyed over potential role in CIA outing...Ari was an excellent liar, far better than ScottMcClellanlon- Ari's parents are long time Democrats...When his father was asked what he thought about Ari being Dubya's Press Secretary he said "At least he's not into drugs." Original from The Wall Street Journal. Because it is true news, WSJ wants you to pay to read.... Raw Story excerpt from WSJ:

In one of his most attention-grabbing reports, issued on Jan. 30, 2005, Mr. Bowen concluded that the American occupation authority failed to keep track of nearly $9 billion that it transferred to Iraqi government ministries, which lacked financial controls and internal safeguards to prevent abuse. One Iraqi ministry cited in the audit inflated its payroll to receive extra funds, claiming to employ 8,206 guards when it actually employed barely 600. The report sparked harsh responses from both Mr. Bremer, the former occupation chief, and the Pentagon. Mr. Bremer chided the auditor for expecting conventional levels of accountability, saying that "given the situation the CPA found in Iraq at liberation, this is an unrealistic standard.

Mr. Bremer and the Pentagon shouldn't chide anyone, least of all, anyone actually doing the job they were commissioned to do.... Did Bremer get the Medal of Freedom because there were no "realistic" standards? This is the man who told the world things were progressing in Iraq....yes, progressively getting worse.... The FBI Agents Who Tried To Stop 911-Agents who try to do their job with integrity are punished...see previous post of Aug 6 2001 memo-the Presidents Daily Briefing.

And One More...this is BIG- The Post is telling the truth, again! "Prosecutor In CIA Leak Case Casting A Wide Net White House Effort To Discredit Critic Examined in Detail" Excerpt:

In a column published Oct. 1, 2003, Novak wrote that the CIA official he spoke to "asked me not to use her name, saying she probably never again will be given a foreign assignment but that exposure of her name might cause 'difficulties' if she travels abroad. He never suggested to me that Wilson's wife or anybody else would be endangered. If he had, I would not have used her name."

Prissy puts Novak in Dubya's HR, since that's where he obviously belongs.....Mr.Novak, if exposure of Ms. Plame's name would even possibly cause "difficulties" if she traveled abroad, why on God's earth would you use it? Unless you were out to harm, which is exactly what you did. Prissy and many others would like to see that you do not walk away without penalty...

The War on Terror Moussa: 'Comprehensive' approach needed... Secretary general of the Arab League talks about recent attacks

Moussa called the terrorists "criminals," and noted their ignorance, but said it's most important to concentrate on prevention. "We cannot defeat terrorism only through security measures. We have to have a political understanding of the seriousness of the situation, the causes behind that, the effects, the organizations. So, we must have a comprehensive approach," he said.

Prevention? WOW that's a new idea.....but that would require non-military engagement and for Dubya and friends, that just will not do. The March of the Orange Shirts-Uri Avnery. Excerpt:

How could a gang of thugs with an inhuman ideology take over a state that, in its time, was perhaps the most cultured country in the world? On the eve of the Eichmann trial, in 1960, I wrote a book on this, concluding with the question: Can it happen here? Today, there is no escape from the terrible answer: Yes, it can happen here. If we behave like the people of Weimar, we shall suffer the same fate as the people of Weimar.

This is the 345,091 reason GW Bush has got to go.....Prissy is waving Bye, Bye to the neocons...and may your kind never darken America and the worlds doorway again.... CNN-John Dean, a FindLaw columnist, is a former counsel to the president of the United States. Old article, but fresh again in light of what we now know as fact in 2005.....


Friday, June 6, 2003 Legal commentary from FindLaw's Writ LAW DICTIONARY (FindLaw) -- President George W. Bush has got a very serious problem. Before asking Congress for a joint resolution authorizing the use of U.S. military forces in Iraq, he made a number of unequivocal statements about the reason the United States needed to pursue the most radical actions any nation can undertake -- acts of war against another nation.

GW Bush must be impeached. He sent our country into an illegal war with disasterous consequences. The notion we must stay and finish the job is erroneous, misleading and much like the 911-Iraq connection and WMD's claims....George Bush and his "ways" have repeatedly proven false, deadly and costly. America, what are you waiting for? The casualty count is 1,783 ....The Iraqi people continue to ask us to leave...and the Afghanistanis too...Does Bush listen to anyone?

Gitmo and Abu Ghraib; Who is Really Responsible?

When Prissy used to work in a maximum security institution for juvenile offenders, the little darlings were not always on their best behavior. At times, they were enough as Granny likes to say, "to make a Preacher cuss."

Prissy often found the male youth getting caught up in an "antler clash" with the male corrections officers. Prissy would remind them they were incarcerated because they could not follow rules...

Because Prissy and the boys didn't run into the "antler clash" - she was firm but fair... She only had to restrain a youth once, in three years while working in institutional security. He cooperated when he saw that it was Prissy; there wasn't much manliness in fighting the smallest security officer in state juvenile corrections....thankfully.

Prissy found communication solved the problems 99% of the time, even in youth who were prone to violent outbursts. The other 1% didn't need beaten, they needed restrained until they were willing to cooperate and could go back into the general population. They always eventually did. For the most part, these kids were more lazy than crazy. True crazies shouldn't be in prison anyway; they should be in a mental institution.

Usually, if we had an out of control youth, Prissy got out of the way and began writing, while her co-workers wrestled him to the ground. This worked out well for all concerned.

Her co-workers didn't like paperwork, Prissy was witnessing the event (important in these settings) and documentation was complete and accurate. This is the way we liked to handle such events.

The youth would be placed in four-point restraints, so he could not hurt himself. He would be watched carefully; checked every fifteen minutes or less.

Then, it was Prissy's turn again. She would talk to this youth, assess what had set him off and decide how we could work out this situation - so he could get out of the four-point restraints. We had strict time limits for these things too.

Interesting Prissy, but where are you going with this? Well, this little story about daily prison details leads us to the jail/justice system everybody is talking about; Guantanamo Bay , Cuba and Abu Ghraib, Iraq.

Prissy thinks this disgrace to the United States of America is unconscionable. She has never abused any prisoner, mentally or physically under her authority; not even the ones I could barely stand to look at. (Like the 13 year old boy who had raped his 3 and 4 year-old sisters)NOTE: Important to point out, the ones Prissy worked with had been tried and sentenced in a court of law....

The tone is set at the top...especially when it comes to "procedure". That is all the suits ever have to do is to tweak policy, so they do it often. To say it was "a few bad apples" in the Gitmo/Abu Ghraib incidents is absurd...and the mentality of those willing to perform such actions upon naked people in handcuffs and leg restraints? Well, let's just say they didn't put any "creative thinkers" on guard duty there. Somebody helped them to know those "procedures" which were devised "soften up" prisoners.

It is important to note that 70-80% of the Prisoners held in Iraq were innocent; by all main stream media and even the military's own reports. They were simply caught up in the sweep.

She has no sympathy for the depraved persons who abused other human beings under their authority. Those who thought up these methods (and those memos) must be called to the carpet and asked why they even think torture works. Most, if not all military and university studies have show otherwise.

Prissy sure wouldn't have signed her name on this article....not even her pen name.... Alleged Guantanamo Abuse Did Not Rise to Level of 'Inhumane'

Veterans for Common Sense...Geez does Dubya EVER listen to the people?-PP Veterans for Common Sense (VCS), a nonpartisan veterans' organization with 12,000 members, called for a commission to investigate torture allegations today, in response to the Pentagon refusal to release photos and videos from Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay, the group said in a release Monday. Pentagon Blocks Release of Abu Ghraib Images: Here's Why -An excerpt: Donald Rumsfeld told Congress last year, after viewing a large cache of unreleased images: "I mean, I looked at them last night, and they're hard to believe. They show acts "that can only be described as blatantly sadistic, cruel and inhumane," he added.A Republican Senator suggested the same day they contained scenes of "rape and murder".

Frist is currently the front runner for president, and the US press refuses to publish what is widely known: the Frist family are the biggest corporate criminals in America. They have paid more criminal fines than Enron. Indeed, both Enron and Frists were the principle backers of George Bush. Now, the Frist family is being sued for 100 times the $2 Billion they already admitted to. Press hammers White House on leak, again; Question on 'treason'. Hmmm....using the "T" word now...

Bush Rules

Dear Readers,

By now, Prissy may have given you the impression that she thinks our President is incompetent. While this may indeed be the case, Prissy wishes to make it clear she did not always feel this way about Dubya. In 2000 she thought that the man with greater intelligence would be the best person for the job, but surely if Dubya won, it wasn't like he was going to destroy the whole country in a few short years, right?

Prissy approaches political elections as though she were hiring an individual to represent her. Are they smart and well- read? Is this person actually qualified to do the job? Do they get along well with others? Do they have a basic understanding of other cultures? Are they grounded in reality? Are they willing to learn ? Can they compromise? Are they willing to debate and engage other points of view?

Oh, and I'll add one more thing...Is this person a bully?

Is this person the best of what America has to put forth to the world and say "Here you have an American, and he's one of our best and brightest ."

When Dubya wasawarded the Presidency in 2000, Prissy was dismayed that the Supreme Court decided to stop the vote count. Why not finish? But she accepted the courts decision and on we went....then came September 11th. Prissy thought he seemed to rise to the occasion, though a couple of details seemed out of place....many details, in retrospect.

Then Dubya began to beat the war drum..OK, and away to Afghanistan we went. Prissy agreed, indeed, if they actually knew "who done it" by all means go and get him! Bring him in alive, so that he might stand trial in front of the world for his crimes....

They are sure he's the one, right? Why else would this country declare two wars simultaneously?

She didn't know three years later, women would still be beaten in the streets for not wearing a Burka or going out by themselves. Or that Osama would be made the ever elusive shadow boogie man, the bad guy we will always be after, but never catch..... ask the French why he hasn't been caught, they know....

Now we have Rovegate. Will the American people insist on boundaries to the Bush Administrations power and behavior? Are they willing to accede to the rule of one man and still claim they have a Democracy? Those are questions only a Bush fan can answer. I say fan, because at this point no Bush supporter is using logic or analysis, only rhetoric and emotion. Prissy stands on the side of the Democracy and the Constitution, not by the man....

I just tell the truth and they think it's hell." - Harry Truman . Waxman: 11 Security Breaches in Plame CaseFactsheet published today cites multiple administration leaks By: Rep.

Prissy admires the commanders strong stance against wife-beaters, be they in Afghanistan or America....

According to an audio recording, Lt. Gen. James Mattis had said, "Actually, it's a lot of fun to fight. You know, it's a hell of a hoot. ... It's fun to shoot some people. I'll be right upfront with you, I like brawling." He added, "You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn't wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them." His comments evoked laughter and applause from the audience. Mattis was speaking during a panel discussion hosted by the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association, a spokeswoman for the general said.

The Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Certainly speaks with candor; the military counseled him for the above statement . Prissy is willing to bet he's no wife-beater, nor is he in need of PrissyBalls....

Global Friends, How Shall the US Overcome?

Will the United States War on Terror ...end like this?

There is not one natural born American today, who has experienced what is was like to see their home or neighborhood bombed by military troops. Not one natural born American who have seen foreign occupation troops with tanks and guns, marching down their street.

Americans often fail to take into this reality into account when rooting their team to war. Prissy says team because she saw one too many Americans whom one would have thought was choosing a favored team for the Superbowl; rather than the leader of the free world. They truly failed to consider the hardships they are asking of troops and their families; let alone the people of Iraq whose homes have been bombed...Prissys' pet peeve is armchair warriors. (See Chickenhawk defined in prevous post)

Plenty of our European and other global friends have witnessed such events. They know war kills people in many ways, emotionally and physically, the innocent and the guilty. They know war means blood, death and destruction...wounds which may take generations to heal. If they ever really do....

Prissy asks you this, Does one really need to experience an earthquake to realize it is a bad experience?

For many of our global friends, that is surely not the case. For some, war and it's devastation, will be a memory that they cannot ever erase. Not ever...and they don't want more.

An older gentleman told Prissy shortly before the elections, what it was like growing up as a young man in Hitler occupied Denmark. He said he has voted Republican ever since becoming an American, in his early a retired engineer, he worries about the "home of the free". He sees the same things happening that he witnessed as a young man. Trading our liberty for "security", the crackdown on dissent and the Patriot Act. So Bushies, is he paranoid too? Prissy laughs at the thought...this man was very much grounded in reality. He knows the face of oppression, he has seen it before. If you are an American, chances are good you have not...but if the present course continues, you will....

For a soldier who has experienced the horrors of war, they are often struck down by memories of tragedy they cannot erase, cannot solve. Some turn to alcohol or drugs.

See Stressed US troops in Iraq 'turning to drugs' ( Vietnam Part II)

This is the human cost of war. Wars leave children who easily frighten, and who will never forget the site of foreign occupiers coming down their streets.... some will grow up to seek vengeance on those who ravaged their country.

What will be the legacy will Americans leave for the citizens of Occupied Iraq? Prissy is here to say, this war will not stop unless Americans do something to stop it now. Otherwise, prepare your kindergartener, Spartan moms....Dubya has them in his sites with "Leave No Child Behind" the recruiters can make it easier by calling the parents directly. One more "benefit" of the Act- "No Child Unrecruited " Mother Jones. New news to some....

Gauging by the reaction of the Democratic Leaders Convention in Columbus yesterday, we sure can't lean on these representatives for help in turning America around......Granted- Prissy interacted with less than a dozen (the rest didn't really want to be bothered with constituents...They were busy drinking in the bar) Note to may have been party time for you, but our soldiers are always "on call"....until you get them home, dear representatives of the people, you should be too... the public patrons were very interested in Prissy's message and they love PrissyBalls too. I'll say it again....You work for the people, the people do not work for you.

Can Somebody Give This Man a Beer to Shut Him Up? See below: Bush salutes "liberals" and the rest of the world who failed to endorse him.

"We need an energy bill that encourages consumption." Somebody tell him the US consumes more than anyone else in the world.. George W. Bush - Trenton, N.J. - September 23, 2002

"This notion that the United States is getting ready to attack Iran is simply ridiculous. And having said that, all options are on on the table."George W. Bush - Brussels, Belgium - February 22, 2005 .

Prissy says it isn't simply ridiculous, its outrageous to even think about it... Scott Ritter had already let the "cat out of the bag", much to the anger of the Bush Administration...They had plans, you see. Just forget it, Americans will riot if you are stupid enough to send them into yet another war, unprepared......That and you cannot possibly scrape up enough troops......

And just what are you trying to do? Our troops to protect the homeland are gone, as well as their equipment. If the destruction of the American military was on the agenda....You are going according to schedule. The schedule that would like to shrink the authority of the United States government to be small enough to "drowned in a bathtub." So then you could do with it as you please? Newsflash: The United States is a Democracy and there are millions of Americans who will not allow those in charge to forget this.

Another "treat" for the Troops, Compliments of the Bush Administration and the Republican House and Senate Excerpt: "Retired Major Doug Rokke, Ph.D. (USAR, retired), who was an Army health physicist during the Gulf war and was then responsible for trying to 'clean up' radiologically contaminated US equipment (RCE's) there, has been calling on the military to follow its own regulations. He and Damacio Lopez continue to make this call."

No training, no armor, no bullets and now they give them the gift that keeps on giving for God only knows how many years.....

And yet, you still dare call yourselves Patriots- and continue to infer others disagreeing with your ruse are not...

Friends, read this in today's' NYT: Eight Days in July....tells of how the administration is quickly unraveling....We can thank God and our Global friends who have always believed in the premise of American Democracy. Don't stop shouting until the wrongdoers are banished...

Who's Sorry Now..... Chickenhawks Misadventures Come Home to Roost

Chickenhawk n. A person enthusiastic about war, provided someone else fights it; particularly when that enthusiasm is undimmed by personal experience with war; most emphatically when that lack of experience came in spite of ample opportunity in that person's youth. From the New Hampshire Gazzette.....

What Exactly is a Chickenhawk?A "chickenhawk" is a very particular creature. The name comes from combining the word "chicken" (coward) with "hawk" (war hawk). To be a chickenhawk, you need to meet three criteria:A chickenhawk is A) a famous person who B) supports the CURRENT wars but C) never served in the military.In other words, a hypocrite who advocates sending children to die in a war, but who refused to go themselves when given the chance.Note you have to meet ALL THREE conditions - A, B, and C - to qualify.

Chickenhawk Data Base-Includes Ann Coulter (new) in the "barking head brigade" . This little copycat see RAW StoryArticle managed to get a spot as a Chickenhawk with the guys, even though it's said she is a woman. Prissy says she will show her chromosomes if you do, Ms. Coulter...... Gossip anyone?

These gals dish the dirt on their former friend, whom they claim is the one and only Ms. Ann Coulter or to see more funny stuff Oh my and the Republicans just love her! Certainly makes sense why "she" believes women are not that bright....

From the Moscow Times...yes, that is correct. The Russians are showing concern that our Democracy is, how shall we say...Not available to the American people and is in the process of being dismantled... Excerpt: "The United States long ago ceased to be anything like a living, thriving republic. But it retained the legal form of a republic, and that counted for something: As long as the legal form still existed, even as a gutted shell, there was hope it might be filled again one day with substance."

From Vermont-GOP Candidate Calls for Impeachment -"A central part of his platform, Morrissey said, will be bringing articles of impeachment against Bush. " Prissy says contact her should you need assistance with the paperwork........... OK, Now I'm Mad! by Monica Benderman "The wife of a US National Guardsman wrote that if her husband were to have died during his tour of duty in Iraq, "I would be promoting all the good he did in this world and not downsizing it and belittling the efforts he and his comrades made." (Shona Emery, NH Union Leader, July 15). My husband [Kevin] DID NOT ENLIST TO DEFEND HIS COUNTRY SO THAT ORDINARY CITIZENS COULD REMAIN FREE TO ABUSE THE SYSTEM. "

Prissy concurs with Mrs. Benderman and feels very sorry that Mrs. Emery thinks the President has the right to such a gross misuse of our military and especially our National Guard.... Prissy asks Mrs. Emery , If your husband dies on his next tour, and the people who planned the war which led to his death are eventually found to have instituted the war for personal, corporate and/or political gain and NOT for security or interest of the United States....Would his death still be OK with you?

Do you love him? If so, then educate yourself, instead of falling for such meaningless rhetoric. Don't let his life be misused. Perhaps this will put things into perspective for you, there's nothing like people who have had similar experiences of being misused by their government... Military compensation ballooning out of control, GAO says - Government Accounting Office-These are the folks who are the investigative arm of the government. They look into fraud, waste and mismanagement....Usually, anyway.....In fairness to the GAO, many of their excellent reports documenting administrations mishaps and have gone nowhere.....Americans that is one more example (besides the war) of your taxpayer dollars going into a black hole. If they investigate and produce reports no one bothers to look at, why are we still paying for it?

Prissy Sees Crazies Everywhere...

Truth and accountability are a valuable commodity in government and media. Without it, the public has few alternatives for information and little recourse if the media refuses to print truth. A court case in Florida last year, by a couple of Fox reporters found out the hard way that Freedom of the Press, includes the < afreedom to lie to the American people without consequence.

(Important background: In this case, it was the reporters who sued, because they actually thought they had a case . Prissy thinks they do... The investigation had come to different conclusions than what brass told them to report as news)

If you want Prissy out of this business, start letting reporters put their country and their readers first.Which is one reason Fox was crossed off as a reliable source of Prissy's news long ago. Yet their propaganda is the only source of news for our American soldiers overseas...Well, that and Rush "Pills" Limbaugh.

Rush is just one more hate filled, anti-fact bigot with a forum. He has also been alleged to coerce his maid into buying illegal prescription drugs for him.

Quite frankly, the allegation of coercion bothers Prissy more than the fat boy popping pills...Hey Rush, next time try something that will make you more mellow and less hateful, please....I'm sure a real doctor would see to it you get the treatment you so desperately need....

Bushies really need to stop making rules for others, because obviously they cannot live up to their own rules...

From the WP:"A classified State Department memorandum central to a federal leak investigation contained information about CIA officer Valerie Plame in a paragraph marked "(S)" for secret, a clear indication that any Bush administration official who read it should have been aware the information was classified, according to current and former government officials."

Oh my, now even the WP is even telling some truth...remember what Prissy said Sunday about the MSM being no more than a bellwether for the country's crisis? This is wonderful, because this means we may be getting our country back! Don't sit back and relax yet, keep writing your representatives!

Speaking of liars and the liars who support their lies......

Here's one more who wanted to change the law so he could be President... Just like Dubya...I mean if we are going to do it like that , Prissy wants George Galloway, not George Bush ...

Duh Article of the Day: Pardon Prissy's pun, she couldn't resist. Schwarzenegger">'>Schwarzenegger Polling Lower Than Ever... "Only 34 percent of adult Californians approve of the job Schwarzenegger is doing as governor, compared with 51 percent who disapprove, according to a survey by the Public Policy Institute of California."

Prissy says bet his bench press is off these days too... how does Maria do it? More later..

A Side Note to All the Politicians Prissy Pokes At....Remember one thing's nothing personal, it's just politics....Now please, do yjavascript:void(0) Publishour jobs so Prissy can do other things.

Like saving women and children from domestic violence and sexual assault. Do you read the news? It's a problem, and you are taking Prissy's time away from lessoning others suffering by prevention education~which is what I do.

Jeb Bush...Shocking 'Coin Gate' Crimes and Murder Published on 02 July 2005 Source: TNC Staff Reporter FL

Florida Investigator Who Got Too Close to Florida "Coin Gate" Silenced by Jeb Bush's Gangsters Story Unfolding Room 132 at the Knight's Inn in Valdosta, Georgia. Florida Department of Transportation Investigator Ray Lemme had the goods on the Bushes. He paid with his life. Lemme was anxious to meet his contact, driving a beeline direct route from Tallahassee using I-10, Rt. 221, and US 85, to Exit 16 intersection of I-75 and US 85 (Knights Inn, 2110 West Hill Ave., Valdosta, Georgia). The Knights Inn is fairly remote from I-75, surrounded by empty lots and woods with few potential witnesses in the vicinity.

Wayne Madsen FLORIDA PANHANDLE, June 10, 2005 -- Experienced federal investigators, acting independently, have discovered a covert funding channel used by the 2000 and 2004 Bush-Cheney campaigns and the administrations of Jeb Bush in Florida and Bob Taft in Ohio to illegally funnel foreign and other questionable money into Republican coffers.

Ever since the brutal death of Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) investigator Ray Lemme in July 2003, the focus of investigators in Florida and Georgia has been on the political scandal Lemme was uncovering. After his official investigation of contract fraud, money laundering, illegal immigration, and election fraud was shut down on orders of Jeb Bush, Lemme continued to investigate the use of FDOT to launder cash for the Bush Brothers and their allies. Lemme's focus was on the use of the Florida turnpike system to launder cash for the Jeb and George W. Bush campaigns.

It was an investigation that would ultimately lead to Lemme's body being discovered in a motel room bathtub in Valdosta, Georgia. A two-state police cover up of Lemme's death, threats directed at Florida and Georgia investigators, and a virtual media blackout indicates that the GOP administrations of Jeb Bush and Georgia's Sonny Perdue wanted the Lemme story to go away -- and fast.

The reason for the cover-up of Lemme's reported "suicide" is simple. Investigators have now discovered that foreign cash, including Chinese, Saudi, and Nigerian money, was laundered via the biggest state-run cash cow in Florida -- the Florida Turnpike system. Because most of the transactions involving Florida's toll roads involve cash and huge amounts of it, it was easy for foreign and other questionable money to be laundered via FDOT. Lemme had reportedly become aware of the use of FDOT to commit criminal acts. Valdosta, where Lemme went to meet a still unknown source, is a key center for international organized criminal activity, including illegal foreign worker smuggling, involving close political allies of George W. and Jeb Bush.

Flashback: From Dec. 6. 2004 article "Texas to Florida: White House-linked clandestine operation paid for "vote switching" software," Wayne Madsen, Yang's [Yang Enterprises] questionable billing activities with its Florida DOT contract came to the attention of Ray C. Lemme, a seasoned senior investigator with the Florida DOT Inspector General's Office and a combat veteran of the Vietnam War. Lemme had a lot of evidence to suspect that Yang was overbilling the DOT for "millions."

After discovering Yang's dirty laundry, Curtis went to work for the DOT. Mavis Georgalis, the DOT's contracting officer for the Yang contract, was also aware of improprieties with the contract. As a result of pressure from the Florida State House, both Curtis and Georgalis were eventually fired by the DOT because of their complaints about the Yang contract. Someone was obviously trying to send Curtis a message when, on August 14, 2002, he discovered that someone poisoned his pet Pomeranian dog, Emily. Lemme was forced to stop his official investigation of Yang for similar reasons. However, he decided to continue an "unofficial" investigation of Yang and its practices on the side.

It was a fateful decision. According to DOT employees familiar with the Yang case, Lemme was aware that it was Jeb Bush who personally shut down his investigation of Yang. Lemme also leaked details concerning his investigation to the Daytona Beach News Journal. The investigator had previously requested a full audit of the Yang contract with the DOT, a request that was denied.

Lemme also became aware of something else outside the framework of the DOT contract that Yang had been involved in producing a prototype vote switching program for use with touch screen voting machines and that Tom Feeney was in on the scam. The last time Clint Curtis spoke to Lemme, he remembers the silver haired investigator excited about where his case was leading. Lemme told Curtis that the cover up of Yang was coming from "as high up as I could imagine" and that he had "proof" that was "shocking."

On Sunday, June 29, 2003, evidence indicates that Lemme drove from Tallahassee to Valdosta, Georgia, the home of Moody Air Force Base. A motel receipt indicated that Lemme checked in at the Knight's Inn off Interstate 75 at 6:49 p.m. Lemme's wife said that her husband left home for work on Monday, June 30, at 5:15 a.m., an hour earlier than usual.

According to a Leon County Sheriff's report, Lemme's wife said she received a voice message after she returned home at 6:45 p.m. on Monday. The message was from her husband's supervisor, Bob Clift, who informed her that earlier in the day, at 6:15 a.m., Lemme called into work, left a message, and said he would not be coming to work that day. Clift said he was checking up on Ray Lemme. Mrs. Lemme called Clift and told him that her husband was not at home. Mrs. Lemme told police that her husband was working on a "big case." Mrs. Lemme filed a missing person report with the Leon County, Sheriff's Office.

Clift later determined that Ray Lemme made his earlier call to work at 6:15 a.m., one hour after he supposedly left his home for work, from a pay phone at the junction of Interstate 10 and Highway 1 in Jefferson County, Florida. Shortly after 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 1, the maid assigned to clean Lemme's room 132 received no answer when she knocked. The door was locked. There was no response when the maid called the room's telephone. The hotel manager then called the police.

The following is from the Valdosta Police Detective Report filed by Detective Craig Spencer and dated July 1, 2003: "On July 1, 2003 at approximately 1330 hours, I received a page advising me to be en route to Knights Inn at 2110 West Hill Avenue in reference to an unattended death." When Spencer and other police officers and detectives arrived at the motel, the manager told them that the occupant of Room 132, Ray Lemme, was to have checked out by 11a.m.

The officers yelled through the slightly ajar door but received no answer and they discovered the upper swing latch was locked. The officers used a special tool provided by the motel to open the swing latch lock. Spencer said that one of the officers entered the room and found a suicide note and then proceeded to the bathroom where Lemme was found dead in the bathtub. Police also discovered that the inside of Lemmes's left elbow "the cubital tunnel" was slashed. There were spurts of blood on the wall but no blood found on the floor. A belt possibly used as a tourniquet and a double- edged straight razor blade were found on the side of the tub. A bath towel was unfolded and neatly placed on the floor next to the tub.

Later on July 1, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Crime Laboratory in Moultrie informed the Valdosta Police that based on the "suicide" details, no autopsy would be performed on Lemme. Unlike Florida, Georgia does not perform mandatory autopsies. A doctor, with 25 years' clinical experience, who was interviewed for this story, claimed that the circumstances of Lemme's death appeared to him to be a classic "mob hit."

If the Leon County Sheriff missing person report is to be believed, it is clear that someone other than Lemme checked into the Valdosta motel on Sunday evening using his name. Clearly, the Leon County Sheriff's report contains a number of details that directly conflict with facts found in the Valdosta Police report.

In addition, the Lowndes County, Georgia, Coroner's report fails to indicate an estimated time of death based on a full medical examination it surmised that the time of death was the same time as indicated on the suicide note: 8:10 a.m. on July 1. An empty manila folder and a blank legal pad notebook were found on the hotel room's desk along with an undated and unsigned suicide note written on lined paper, which lacked any identifiable fingerprints, from Lemme's day planner. The note merely contained the time 8:10 a.m. with the following notation: "I love my family (family underlined once) with all my heart. I am sorry. I am depressed and in pain. Mary Ann (Lemme's wife), I love you." ("I love you" underlined twice). It was certainly not indicative of a person who was ecstatic that he was finally going to nail a long investigation that involved vote rigging, overbilling, and fraud abetted by the very top political leadership in Tallahassee. Interestingly, the last number on Lemme's pager (an 850 960-XXXX) ended with the number "911."

It is also interesting that Lemme's watch, when discovered by the police, was stopped at 12:34 p.m. on June 30 a possible indication that Lemme was trying to convey the time of a possible in extremis situation. Also, Lemme's Florida driver's license was in his room while his wallet was in the glove box of his car, which was parked in front of the room. Two motel receipts were found in Lemme's room by the police. One was a check-in receipt dated June 29 and timed at 6:44 p.m. The other was a receipt, without a notation of check-in or check-out, dated June 30 and timed at 6:54 a.m. A witness told police that Lemme's car was parked in front of his room on the afternoon of June 30.

Sergeant Eugene Bell of the Valdosta Police Department interviewed a 39-year old female guest who was staying in Room 236 over the weekend. She and her daughter noticed three men standing in the parking lot across from Lemme's room at 8 a.m. on the morning of July 1. The behavior of the men made the guest suspicious enough that the woman initially believed the men were engaged in a drug deal.

According to the police report, the camera used to photograph the crime scene was later discovered to have a defect in the flash memory card. The defect resulted in no usable photographs being submitted with the official police report. Later, veteran GAO and FBI investigative specialist John Caylor discovered that the Valdosta Police story about a defective digital camera memory stick and the purported lack of crime scene photos of Lemme's motel room was a ruse. Caylor was able to obtain the crime scene photos of Lemme from the Valdosta Police. Lemme's body, found in Room 132 of the Knights Inn bath tub, clearly shows that he was brutally beaten and strangled prior to his death -- reported by police to have been from a self-inflicted razor cut to his arm.

It is unlikely that Lemme, who told former FDOT and Yang programmer Clint Curtis that he was on the verge of cracking a huge case that went straight "to the top," would have traveled to a state like Georgia, where autopsies are not mandatory, to commit suicide. Moreover, Lemme drove a beeline route to Valdosta, an indication that he was anxious to meet with his "source."

Lemme had been informed that a Chinese sub-contract programmer for Yang named Henry Ni, who had been busted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers for illegally transferring missile parts to China, had been given the social security number of an Iowa resident. Although Ni had only been in the United States for five years, his social security number from Iowa had been issued to another individual twenty-four years earlier.

Valdosta is a center for illegal smuggling and it was this nexus of illegal alien smuggling and money laundering that attracted Lemme to the city. After Lemme's death, Valdosta criminal activities and bribes paid to Florida politicians became the subject of a grand jury investigation run by the US Attorney for Northwest Florida Greg Miller.

Miller's investigation reportedly dovetailed with Lemme's probe of money laundering involving FDOT and Florida turnpike receipts. The Chairman of the Florida Transportation Commission who has control of FDOT and the turnpike system is Earl Durden, a major GOP player in Florida who is close to both Jeb and George W. Bush. Durden was appointed to the Transportation Commission post by Jeb Bush. When Miller's investigation of money laundering was leaked, it was George W. Bush who personally flew to Florida from Washington to close down the entire probe.

The six Florida Panhandle counties west of Tallahassee and the border counties of Georgia and Alabama have long been centers of illicit Bush activities dating back to the Iran-contra and savings and loan failures. Lowndes County, where Valdosta is located, is a major center for Bush-connected criminal activity. Now comes word that "Coin Gate" in Ohio is tied to the same criminal elements in the GOP that were responsible for turnpike toll money laundering in Florida.

Durden's counterpart in Ohio, Tommy Noe, a Bush "Pioneer" contributor who Gov. Taft appointed to the Ohio Turnpike Commission, is in the center of a major scandal involving missing state funds invested in rare coins and baseball cards. Shortly after the Toledo Blade began reporting on the Ohio coin scandal, Noe resigned from the turnpike commission. An additional investigation of missing Ohio state revenue is focused on millions of state dollars invested in a hedge fund.

Federal investigators are investigating charges that Noe laundered some of the missing $12 million from the state's coin fund into the Bush 2004 campaign. Mr. Bush has returned a mere $4000 from Noe's contributions. Ohio and Florida were the scenes of major election fraud in 2004.

It now appears that both states laundered hundreds of millions of dollars to engage in massive fraud involving all sectors of state government, from election officials and Secretaries of State to state auditors and attorneys general. Ohio and Florida have the highest turnpike toll rates in the nation coupled with the least oversight.

Both states, rife with political corruption fostered by the patrician Republican Taft and Bush families, are now the center of coin gate scandals tied to political chicanery and money laundering. Manhattan's veteran District Attorney Robert Morgenthau is on the verge of penetrating a major conduit for foreign money into the Bush family network and the American political system that parallels the campaign finance scandals in Ohio and Florida.

Morgenthau's investigation of the notorious Sam and Charlie Wyly brothers of Texas, the billionaires who spearheaded the Swift Boat disinformation campaign against John Kerry and a similar distortion effort against John McCain in 2000, is focused on a Wyly-controlled Isle of Man offshore account tied to the Bank of America. In 1989, George H. W. Bush dispatched a Houston attorney to the Isle of Man to take charge of the secret Bush accounts. One of the accounts was Five Star Trust, a multi-billion dollar account used by the Bushes as a covert off-shore money tranche for their political and business purposes.
