III. THE LAST TIME AROUND ('04 Election)

As reported:

York County, Pennsylvania

Cleanup will soon be under way at the Bush-Cheney Victory Center in York County for the fifth time this election season.

Vandals spray painted anti-Bush messages and "Vote Kerry" on the building and on the rented sign out front Wednesday night.

They also stole the letters from the sign out front which had been advertising a veterans event for this weekend.

"I just don't understand the mentality we're dealing with here. I mean, what are they proving? Because it's really, it's degrading to the other party to have this kind of vandalism going on," said Darwin Doll, headquarters coordinator.

The vandals hit other businesses and a barn along Route 74 just outside of Dallastown Wednesday night.

Doll said the Victory Center will now be equipped with security cameras.


Mercer Island, Washington

According to two Mercer Island men, signs supporting President Bush are an endangered species. Within days of going up in the affluent neighborhood, the signs disappear. So there the men were this week, camped in the dark woods with lawn chairs and a video camera, waiting for the thieves to strike. It only took three hours. At about 10 p.m. Tuesday, a 25-year-old Mercer Island man walked to a grassy area along the 6700 block of Island Crest Way and began to pull up Bush signs installed by the two men, police said.

The amateur detectives burst out of the woods and confronted the man, who was apologetic. The men detained him until police arrived.

One of the men, who did not want to be identified for fear of reprisals by Kerry supporters, said the anti-Bush sentiment in the neighborhood is extreme and angry. "They're entirely within their rights to protect their investment and make sure their views are protected," said Ross Marzolf, executive director of the King County Republican Party, which gave the men new signs.


Akron, Ohio

Two men who tore down a Bush-Cheney sign and urinated on it were caught on videotape by Summit County Republican officials early Friday morning.

The videotape shows the men sneaking into the yard of a West Market Street home and bending the sign to the ground. The men struggled to rip the sign out of the ground by shaking it and pulling it but couldn't get it off the posts, so they knocked it down. Sounds heard on the tape suggest the men urinated on the sign.

The homeowner, Steve Kotsatos, who is also assistant to the director of the Summit County Board of Elections, called Akron police dispatchers at 10:38 a.m. Friday and told them about how his campaign sign was vandalized.

He said he caught the vandals on a night-vision camera he had installed the day before.

"A couple of days ago my neighbor's sign was set on fire with a blowtorch so I figured I might be next,'' Kotsatos said. "This is not only criminal damaging but a safety hazard.''

The large 4-by-8-foot, red, white and blue sign was tipped over in Kotsatos' yard about 1 a.m. Friday.

John Kerry's name was scrawled across Bush's name in black marker on one side of the sign -- the work of previous vandals, Kotsatos said.


Tampa, Florida

Labor activists stormed President Bush's campaign headquarters in Tampa on Tuesday, part of an orchestrated event nationwide involving thousands of people protesting his policies on overtime pay.

No one was injured or arrested in Tampa, police said. Miami and Orlando also were among the 17 cities in swing- voting states where the AFL-CIO organized such events.

Protesters, including construction and hospital workers, were armed with postcards and petitions expressing their disapproval of Bush's overtime policies. Some held signs reading: ``Don't Take Away Our Overtime.'


Milwaukee, Wisconsin

More than 50 demonstrators supporting Democrat presidential candidate John Kerry stormed a Republican campaign office in West Allis at mid-day today, trespassing, creating a disturbance through the use of a bullhorn in the office and then refusing to leave when asked.

Graber called the latest incident part of a disturbing trend of criminal conduct by anti-Bush forces in Wisconsin, pointing to an incident in Madison last week in which Bush-Cheney yard signs were stolen from the yards of three homes. The vandals then used chemicals to burn swastikas into the lawns of the homes, which were within a two-block radius of one another.

In addition, reports of stolen, defaced and damaged Bush-Cheney campaign signs are surfacing throughout Wisconsin.

“Our volunteers, from children to the elderly, have every right to feel safe when they are working on behalf of a cause and candidates they believe in,” Graber commented. “This type of thuggish, intimidating conduct is absolutely unacceptable. It is time for John Kerry, the Wisconsin Democrat party, and Kerry’s campaign leaders, including Gov. James E. Doyle, to put a stop to this shameful behavior."


Orlando, Florida

A group of protestors stormed and then ransacked a Bush-Cheney headquarters building in Orlando, Fla., Tuesday, according to Local 6 News.
Local 6 News reported that several people from the group of 100 Orlando protestors face possible assault charges after the group forced their way inside the Republican headquarters office.

While in the building, some of the protestors drew horns and a mustache on a poster of President George W. Bush and poured piles of letters in the office, according to the report.


Knoxville, Tennessee

An unknown suspect fired several shots into the Bearden office of the Bush/Cheney re-election campaign Tuesday morning.

The headquarters are located at 4618 Kingston Pike, next to Noveau Classics and in the same shopping plaza as Long's Drugstore.

According to Knoxville Police Department (KPD) officers on the scene Tuesday, it is believed that the two separate shots were fired from a car sometime between 6:30 am and 7:15 am.

One shot shattered the glass in the front door and the other cracked the glass in another of the front doors.

Volunteers and staffers at the campaign office say they have no clues as to who might have committed the crime. However, they add that the shooting makes them even more enthusiastic and energized about working for their candidates.

"If I have to sleep here (at the campaign office) now, that's what I'll do," says volunteer Suzanne Dewar.


Bellevue, Washington

Three computers loaded with confidential campaign plans were reported stolen early yesterday in a burglary at President Bush's Washington state campaign headquarters.

Someone threw a rock through a window of the campaign's office in a suburban business park, taking laptops belonging to key campaign workers from the desk of the Bush campaign's state director, Bellevue police and Republican Party officials said.

The Bush campaign and local Republican officials say they're convinced the break-in was politically motivated. They say it appeared to be a targeted burglary and was suspiciously similar to a break-in four years ago at Bush's Bellevue offices.


Madison, Wisconsin

Someone burned an 8-foot-by-8-foot Nazi swastika on a home's lawn near where Bush-Cheney signs were posted. The vandals used grass killer to spray the symbol.

"I just cannot believe that someone would take the liberty to do this," said homeowner Rob Schaeffer. "We're appalled that someone would choose to destroy our property because they don't believe in our political views. My signs are going right back in the yard. This is my property. We live here. We have rights."

Police are investigating the criminal damage and told the homeowner it will be investigated as a hate crime, which carries stiffer penalties.


Avon, Colorado

Enough of the burning Bush and enough of the Avon chain saw massacre.

Vandals trespassing on his property to chainsaw the middle out of Republican campaign signs spurred landowner Magnus Lindholm Wednesday to offer a $5,000 reward for information leading the arrest of those responsible.

Earlier this week, somebody chain-sawed the middle out of two Bush signs on his property in Avon at the William Post Boulevard exit on Interstate 70. A “Bush/Cheney ’04” campaign sign was burned in Wolcott.

No signs promoting Democratic presidential hopeful John Kerry or Senate hopeful Ken Salazar have been reported damaged.

Cars owned by Eagle County resident Gunther Schmidt and his daughter, which carried Bush/Cheney bumper stickers, have also been targeted. While the damage was light — the bumper stickers were scratched off and the cars scratched — Schmidt said it’s not the extent, but the principle of free speech that matters.

“If you are for the Republican party, it seems to me that the Democrats take all kinds of measures to destroy your signs,” said Schmidt. “I thought we lived in a free country where you could express your opinion in a non-violent way, without being punished for it.


Oxford, Mississippi

Oxford police are investigating a break-in over the weekend at the Bush-Cheney campaign headquarters in Oxford.

Andrew George, North Mississippi Field Coordinator for the Mississippi Republican Party, said he was heading to church in Oxford Sunday morning and noticed that something wasn’t right at the store-front headquarters on Van Buren Avenue at South 11th Street.

“They came in and broke out the window on the front door. They broke out another of the front windows,” he said.

George said it was an act of vandalism, not theft. Vandalism is a felony in Mississippi.


Huntington, West Virginia

Republican supporters in Huntington were watching their candidate accept the party's nomination when a gunshot rang out right in the middle of George W. Bush's speech.

"We heard a small snap, and felt glass come sliding by us. We looked up and saw a hole in our window and realized somebody was shooting at us", said Paula Stewart.

Witnesses tell police that someone fired a shot at the Republican Headquarters office at 1402 4th Avenue around 10:30pm Thursday night.

Twenty five people were inside facing the window, watching the speech on TV, when the shot was fire.

The bullet went over their heads.


IV. BARACK H. OBAMA

TONY REZKO:

Barack Obama has been friends with Antoin ("Tony") Rezko since at least 1990.

Rezko is a political fundraiser, restaurateur, and real estate developer in Chicago, Illinois, and has been involved in fundraising for local Illinois politicians since the 1980s.

He focused primarily on Chicago-area Democrats, and was one of Obama's first financial contributors, raising at least $150,000 for Obama's campaigns.

In return, Barack arranged an internship in 2005 for John Aramanda, the son of a Rezko business associate (Joseph Aramanda, who himself gave Barack $11,500.)

In June, 2005, Obama bought a house in Chicago for $1.65 million ($300,000 below the asking price). The same day, Rezko bought (in his wife's name) the vacant lot next door for $625,000, the full price asked. Seven months later, Rezko sold Barack a slice (1/6th) of his lot so the Obamas could have a bigger yard.

This year, 2008, Rezko was convicted on several counts of fraud and bribery.

Among other problems, Rezko is on trial in a federal government corruption case for demanding kickbacks from companies wanting to do business with Illinois Governor Blagojevich, another politician that Rezko has befriended and donated to.

Joseph Aramanda--who Obamas arranged an internship for-- is an unindicted co-conspirator in one of the kickback cases.


VICE PRESIDENT SELECTION TEAM:

One of the three members of the team that Barack Obama has assigned to search for a vice-president is Eric Holder .

While he served as Bill Clinton's Deputy Attorney General, Holder (Democrat) was the "key person who made the pardon of Marc Rich possible in the final hours of the Clinton presidency," writes Dick Morris.

Rich, a financier (and Democrat), was indicted for evading more than $48 million in taxes, and accused of more than four dozen counts of tax fraud. He also was accused of running illegal oil deals with Iran during the 1979-1980 time period when Americans were held hostage in Iran.

He fled the country and lived as a fugitive in Switzerland.

Another on the three-man team is long-time Democratic insider
Jim Johnson.

Johnson stands accused of, among other things, getting a seven million dollar below-market rate home loan from Countrywide Financial through an informal program set up for friends of the embattled mortgage company's CEO.

Obama has, in the past, used strong language in railing against Countrywide and other subprime lenders, making his association with Johnson--and Johnson's with the lender--awkward.

So far, Obama has yet to dismiss Johnson with his trademark "this is not the Jim Johnson I know" waiver.

The buffoonish situation now of "vetting the vetters" is not a promising start for a politician representing himself as an agent of "Change."

Instead, he's sounding more and more like just another Democrat (see above).

Now, John. When Hillary hid all those records under her bed, you did not, at that time, think that that was the smartest woman on the planet??

C'mon now. We are talking first lady here. When Billy terrorized women, was it not in the interest of ALL women to destroy their lives and reputations because they dared to confront the Clinton machine? After all, weren't they just willing pawns? More than that, Selling the Chinese government valuable information about our defense system cannot be all that bad can it? I would think you have something in for the Clinton Government if I did not know better.

Surely you are not going to criticize "The MAD Bomber" Albright for going after aspirin companies and Serbians to cover up Mr. Clinton lying to a Federal Grand Jury?? After all, what can be more innocent than rank perjury before a Federal Court? Don't you do that every other week?

Now, never mind what happened to the things like the education system after Mrs. Clinton sank her fangs into that and dropped it several levels below the national average. That would be just unfair. Never mind any of those things.

We are now going to have a crystal clear honest candidate manufactured from the Chicago machine that has NO problems with shady characters or strange bed-fellows. Oh no. Barach is as clean as the driven snow, and he has no baggage as much as he has no experience or a resume, other than voting more liberal than even Kennedy (who I do hope gets well). No, Obama only has to answer for a few small things, such as shady business partners and radical theology. Never mind the most angry potential first wife we have seen since Hillary found that damned blue dress behind the chair in the Oval Office. ( Would NOT have wanted to be there, thank you! )

Let's not talk about "who killed who," this is a HAPPY occasion. Who cares if important people died in plane crashes or killed themselves by shooting their own heads from the back? This is the Clinton regime you are talking about. YES! The very same ones that want to hide the records that have not been shredded already until your grandchildren are in wheelchairs. You think Nixon was scared? These people have no problem in announcing how scared they are.

But poor Billy.

Poor Billy Clinton.

They pulled the "race card" on a man that hired virtually NO minorities to his cabinet, and then the minorities talk back to him. Damnit, he has an office in HARLEM. How much more sensitive can you get? He is just a molester without a cause, and as clean as yesterday's laundry. Why do people pick on him? He wants to be as black as he is away from his wife's bedroom. He cannot get either, but dammit, he tried. They pulled the race card on him, and the press has gone against his wife. He said so.

What is a man like that going to do?

Well, I have some ideas.

He could outright betray his country like Jimmy Carter. That does not seem like a stretch anymore. He has no other birthright, it seems, so let him suck off of the tit of being a traitor, as little Jimmy wants to do. He could be the second President of the US to formally betray his country to our enemies.

Good career move? Not likely. Not if the wifey is going to be the Veep next to another traitorous scum that preaches hatred against us that make the country work. He likely will have to be content wishing he makes as much money as his VP does now selling soap and gargling on the global warming cooling that is taking place.

A Republican strategy memo obtained last week by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) made clear that the obstructionist tactics employed by conservatives were aimed solely at "making political points" rather than "affecting policy." "You could not make up anything more cynical," said Reid when he revealed the memo on the Senate floor. As Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) noted on the Senate floor yesterday, conservatives in Congress have broken historical precedent by engaging in 75 filibusters this Congress. But the filibuster isn't the only obstructionist tactic employed by Senate Republicans. Yesterday, Senate conservatives used a rare maneuver to shut down a Judiciary Committee hearing on torture by forcing the Senate into recess. Reid called the maneuver by Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) "part of a pattern of obstruction." Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who has been in the Senate since 1992, remarked that the shut down was "very, very unusual."

And these weasels are trying to blame the Democratic congress for inaction!! Fortunately no one's listening to their sleaze anymore...nothing but stale air from a bloated, old corpse.

Here's some more of that ANCIENT HISTORY for you...when's DeLay's new trial coming? OH, that would be the FUTURE wouldn't it? haha

Former Rep. Bob Ney, R-Ohio, has been sentenced to 30 months in federal prison for his role in a congressional bribery scandal, the Associated Press reports.

As The Columbus Dispatch notes, prosecutors had asked for 27 months and Ney's lawyer hoped for 24.

The Dispatch reminds its readers this morning that Ney, 52, "pleaded guilty in October to federal charges of accepting thousands of dollars worth of free trips and cash from lobbyist Jack Abramoff and a Syrian businessman."

Former Rep. Bob Ney, R-Ohio, has been sentenced to 30 months in federal prison for his role in a congressional bribery scandal, the Associated Press reports.

As The Columbus Dispatch notes, prosecutors had asked for 27 months and Ney's lawyer hoped for 24.

The Dispatch reminds its readers this morning that Ney, 52, "pleaded guilty in October to federal charges of accepting thousands of dollars worth of free trips and cash from lobbyist Jack Abramoff and a Syrian businessman."


Disgraced once powerful Ohio Congressloon Bob Ney, a longtime DeLay and Abramoff asslicker and a particularly nasty far right extremist, has been told by House Speaker Denny Hastert-- himself being investigated for taking bribes from numerous sources including the Turkish government (for whom he screwed over Armenian-Americans)-- that his overreaching corruption, or at least how he allowed himself to get caught at it, is an embarrassment to the Republican Party and that he'd have to step down from his leadership position. That means bye-bye to his power base (and bribe-raking-in base) as chairman of the House Administration Committee, where he was able to do so much damage to the country through his ties with the Diebold vote counting corporation.

Ney, who is being investigated in every single scandal enveloping the Republican House majority, is everybody's first bet to be the next high level Republican congressman indicted. Because of his extremely close financial and political ties to GOP Crime Boss Tom DeLay and with DeLay consigliere and rainmaker Jack Abramoff (both indicted, Abramoff already turning states evidence against, among others, Ney), Ney is also mixed up with a gangland style murder of former Abramoff partner Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis. Many in Washington are speculating that Hastert was tipped off that something really bad is about to come down on Ney and that that was why he decided to move quickly to get him out of the Republican hierarchy.

Meanwhile, a dazed and crestfallen Ney, close to tears, was heard saying "I'm considering it-- stepping down temporarily-- and once the issue is over, I'll come back." I'm sure that will remind everyone of what DeLay himself was saying as he was hauled in and fingerprinted and photographed. The GOP never forced multimillion dollar bribe-taker Randy "Duke" Cunningham to step down from his sensitive committee positions (Defense and Intelligence), from which he was selling access, and many powerful Republican salons are now frightened about rumors that appeared in TIME Magazine that in that interim Cunningham was wearing a wire and has recorded the goods on at least two other California bribe-takers, Duncan Hunter and Jerry Lewis, both of whom worked closely with Cunningham and the contractors that were paying him off.

According to The Hotline, "A Republican close to Ney said that 'he obviously recognizes that, although he is confident that he didn't do anything wrong, he recognizes his name is becoming a distraction to the Republican conference.' Hastert's spokesman, Ron Bonjean, acknowledged 'there have been ongoing discussions between Speaker Hastert and Rep. Ney about his role as Chairman of the House Administration Committee.' A House leadership aide said that Hastert 'is moving behind the scenes for the greater good of the conference and handling it in the most dignified way as possible.'"

A public food fight would certainly be less dignified. (You can be sure that Joe Sulzer, the Democrat who will in all likelihood be representing Ohio's 18th Congressional District after the November elections, is preparing for Ney's early retirement, not just from his committee chairmanship, by from public life.)

Many House Republicans-- or at least the ones who are playing closer attention than ole Hastert to which way the winds are blowin'-- also want dei Partei's Conference Secretary John Doolittle, another indictment-waiting-to-happen, to step down beforehis mug shot is plastered all over the national media. And some of these same people are wondering who will be the one to eventually tell Hastert that he has to step down. Already the newest contestant to fill DeLay's old job as House Majority Leader, John Shadegg has strongly hinted that neither of the two leading candidates, both of whom are firmly tied to the corrupt DeLay/Abramoff K-Street machine, is ethically it to hold the job. (The extremist loons at the National Review have endorsed Shadegg, primarily because the other two, Roy Blunt and John Boehner are so tied in with all the filth and corruption and because Shadegg's voting record is even further right than Bush's agenda. "He is the candidate least associated with the status quo, and the cozy world of K Street. That's a good thing." (Well it would be if it wasn't just a fantasy. Shadegg was on the take from both DeLay and Abramoff, just for less money than the rest of the tarnished Republicans trying to claw their way to the top over DeLay's rotting corpse.)

The Ney story is really getting out to the public much more than I would have imaged. CNN featured it in its headlines this morning when I woke up at 5AM and AOL has a front page story and Ney's disgrace is the subject of today's AOL poll: "What Should Bob Ney Do?" 65% of respondents opt for "Quit Congress altogether." 27% opt for "Resign his chairmanship." And fully 8% of respondents pick "He should do nothing at all." Who are these people? I mean are 8% of America that devoted to the likes of an Ann Coulter and Kate O'Bierne psycho mentality?

"btw, weenie, that "list" is rilly precious. It's so full of grotesque idiocies that the whole thing is a joke."

He's projecting. His "lists" included allegations (I left out a slew of unindicted ones, he didn't), Santorum's mourning over his dead infant, homosexual Republicans calling hotlines, relatives of "Republicans" who were county commissioners and librarians, and Ted Bundy, to boot.

My list covers top dogs.

"Entertaining, though...and a measure of the desperation and mendacity of the right."

The sordid list--and reputation--of the Democrats and the Left in general-- has been established and well known for decades.

It was out first.

In the Left's characteristic way of projecting and/or inverting, they have recently tried to turn the tables by being plagiarising copycats in a mendacious attempt to attach the stigma of criminality and corruption on the Right, who are overwhelmingly prudes and Boy & Girl Scouts on their bad days.

They've laughed at the goody-two shoes quality. Now they're trying the opposite angle.

Theirs is an organized, table-turning effort to distract from the last--and current and future--assault on common sense and decency commited by the Clintons and the Democrats in general and is why this one is so ready and aggressive with talking points and information while Obama is packaged as a "new" kind of politician who takes the high road, is faithful to his wife, and lectures to graduating students not to be seduced by money and power, like a "true" Democrat.

Of course, unlike the Republicans and/or conservatives.

"Everybody knows that."

We've heard this "New Democrat" spiel before. It was first with Gary "Money Business" Hart in 1988, then Bill Clinton.

"Those Clinton MURDERS though...hahhahhahah ..."

Clinton is not accused of murder. That section was called "weird s**t."

But typical, as potty-trained by Alinsky, to ridicule with your "hahahaha" and defame any mention of the bizarre deaths as "crackpot" in order to imply that the deaths themselves were "made up s**t" and blunt the point and turn it back against the wielder--but not actually: The point is affixed between your eyes.

But what matters--to their demagogic kind--is what some invisible--and blind and stupid-- audience of "The People" think, because "perception is reality," so they assure them that the opposite is the case with their "hahahahas" and inverted projections.

"...sane people have been laughing about that for years."

Right. So if you're not "laughing," you're insane.

One more time:

"ARKANSAS SUDDEN DEATH SYNDROME (weird s**t):

- Number of persons in the Clinton machine orbit who are alleged to have committed suicide: 9
- Number known to have been murdered: 12
- Number who died in plane crashes: 6
- Number who died in single car automobile accidents: 3
- Number of one-person sking fatalities: 1
- Number of key witnesses who have died of heart attacks while in federal custody under questionable circumstances: 1
- Number of unexplained deaths: 4
- Number of northern Mafia killings during peak years of 1968-78: 30
- Number of Dixie Mafia killings during same period: 156"

Those are stats. And if you think any of that's funny, you're insane.

And that's the best you can do, isolate the admittedly bizarre parts and so disqualify the entire rap sheet of lowlife behavior from the LEADERS of your foul movement?

"It's so full of grotesque idiocies that the whole thing is a joke."

You included Santorum's private mourning over a dead infant and homesexual Republicans hitting on temps in your "list."

"You really like to make a marginalized nutcase of yourself, don't you buddy?"

It's you who's the marginalized freak, pal. You're an embarrassment to the professional leftists who--like Hillary and Obama--have to try damn hard to convince as many as possible that they're sane centrists (if not conservative).

138 appointees of the Reagan administration either resigned under an ethical cloud or were criminally indicted.

"By the end of his term, 138 administration officials had been convicted, had been indicted, or had been the subject of official investigations for official misconduct and/or criminal violations. In terms of number of officials involved, the record of his administration was the worst ever."

III. THE LAST TIME AROUND ('04 Election)

As reported:

York County, Pennsylvania

Cleanup will soon be under way at the Bush-Cheney Victory Center in York County for the fifth time this election season.

Vandals spray painted anti-Bush messages and "Vote Kerry" on the building and on the rented sign out front Wednesday night.

They also stole the letters from the sign out front which had been advertising a veterans event for this weekend.

"I just don't understand the mentality we're dealing with here. I mean, what are they proving? Because it's really, it's degrading to the other party to have this kind of vandalism going on," said Darwin Doll, headquarters coordinator.

The vandals hit other businesses and a barn along Route 74 just outside of Dallastown Wednesday night.

Doll said the Victory Center will now be equipped with security cameras.

Mercer Island, Washington

According to two Mercer Island men, signs supporting President Bush are an endangered species. Within days of going up in the affluent neighborhood, the signs disappear. So there the men were this week, camped in the dark woods with lawn chairs and a video camera, waiting for the thieves to strike. It only took three hours. At about 10 p.m. Tuesday, a 25-year-old Mercer Island man walked to a grassy area along the 6700 block of Island Crest Way and began to pull up Bush signs installed by the two men, police said.

The amateur detectives burst out of the woods and confronted the man, who was apologetic. The men detained him until police arrived.

One of the men, who did not want to be identified for fear of reprisals by Kerry supporters, said the anti-Bush sentiment in the neighborhood is extreme and angry. "They're entirely within their rights to protect their investment and make sure their views are protected," said Ross Marzolf, executive director of the King County Republican Party, which gave the men new signs.

Akron, Ohio

Two men who tore down a Bush-Cheney sign and urinated on it were caught on videotape by Summit County Republican officials early Friday morning.

The videotape shows the men sneaking into the yard of a West Market Street home and bending the sign to the ground. The men struggled to rip the sign out of the ground by shaking it and pulling it but couldn't get it off the posts, so they knocked it down. Sounds heard on the tape suggest the men urinated on the sign.

The homeowner, Steve Kotsatos, who is also assistant to the director of the Summit County Board of Elections, called Akron police dispatchers at 10:38 a.m. Friday and told them about how his campaign sign was vandalized.

He said he caught the vandals on a night-vision camera he had installed the day before.

"A couple of days ago my neighbor's sign was set on fire with a blowtorch so I figured I might be next,'' Kotsatos said. "This is not only criminal damaging but a safety hazard.''

The large 4-by-8-foot, red, white and blue sign was tipped over in Kotsatos' yard about 1 a.m. Friday.

John Kerry's name was scrawled across Bush's name in black marker on one side of the sign -- the work of previous vandals, Kotsatos said.

Tampa, Florida

Labor activists stormed President Bush's campaign headquarters in Tampa on Tuesday, part of an orchestrated event nationwide involving thousands of people protesting his policies on overtime pay.

No one was injured or arrested in Tampa, police said. Miami and Orlando also were among the 17 cities in swing- voting states where the AFL-CIO organized such events.

Protesters, including construction and hospital workers, were armed with postcards and petitions expressing their disapproval of Bush's overtime policies. Some held signs reading: ``Don't Take Away Our Overtime.'

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

More than 50 demonstrators supporting Democrat presidential candidate John Kerry stormed a Republican campaign office in West Allis at mid-day today, trespassing, creating a disturbance through the use of a bullhorn in the office and then refusing to leave when asked.

Graber called the latest incident part of a disturbing trend of criminal conduct by anti-Bush forces in Wisconsin, pointing to an incident in Madison last week in which Bush-Cheney yard signs were stolen from the yards of three homes. The vandals then used chemicals to burn swastikas into the lawns of the homes, which were within a two-block radius of one another.

In addition, reports of stolen, defaced and damaged Bush-Cheney campaign signs are surfacing throughout Wisconsin.

“Our volunteers, from children to the elderly, have every right to feel safe when they are working on behalf of a cause and candidates they believe in,” Graber commented. “This type of thuggish, intimidating conduct is absolutely unacceptable. It is time for John Kerry, the Wisconsin Democrat party, and Kerry’s campaign leaders, including Gov. James E. Doyle, to put a stop to this shameful behavior."

Orlando, Florida

A group of protestors stormed and then ransacked a Bush-Cheney headquarters building in Orlando, Fla., Tuesday, according to Local 6 News.
Local 6 News reported that several people from the group of 100 Orlando protestors face possible assault charges after the group forced their way inside the Republican headquarters office.

While in the building, some of the protestors drew horns and a mustache on a poster of President George W. Bush and poured piles of letters in the office, according to the report.

Knoxville, Tennessee

An unknown suspect fired several shots into the Bearden office of the Bush/Cheney re-election campaign Tuesday morning.

The headquarters are located at 4618 Kingston Pike, next to Noveau Classics and in the same shopping plaza as Long's Drugstore.

According to Knoxville Police Department (KPD) officers on the scene Tuesday, it is believed that the two separate shots were fired from a car sometime between 6:30 am and 7:15 am.

One shot shattered the glass in the front door and the other cracked the glass in another of the front doors.

Volunteers and staffers at the campaign office say they have no clues as to who might have committed the crime. However, they add that the shooting makes them even more enthusiastic and energized about working for their candidates.

"If I have to sleep here (at the campaign office) now, that's what I'll do," says volunteer Suzanne Dewar.

Bellevue, Washington

Three computers loaded with confidential campaign plans were reported stolen early yesterday in a burglary at President Bush's Washington state campaign headquarters.

Someone threw a rock through a window of the campaign's office in a suburban business park, taking laptops belonging to key campaign workers from the desk of the Bush campaign's state director, Bellevue police and Republican Party officials said.

The Bush campaign and local Republican officials say they're convinced the break-in was politically motivated. They say it appeared to be a targeted burglary and was suspiciously similar to a break-in four years ago at Bush's Bellevue offices.

Madison, Wisconsin

Someone burned an 8-foot-by-8-foot Nazi swastika on a home's lawn near where Bush-Cheney signs were posted. The vandals used grass killer to spray the symbol.

"I just cannot believe that someone would take the liberty to do this," said homeowner Rob Schaeffer. "We're appalled that someone would choose to destroy our property because they don't believe in our political views. My signs are going right back in the yard. This is my property. We live here. We have rights."

Police are investigating the criminal damage and told the homeowner it will be investigated as a hate crime, which carries stiffer penalties.

Avon, Colorado

Enough of the burning Bush and enough of the Avon chain saw massacre.

Vandals trespassing on his property to chainsaw the middle out of Republican campaign signs spurred landowner Magnus Lindholm Wednesday to offer a $5,000 reward for information leading the arrest of those responsible.

Earlier this week, somebody chain-sawed the middle out of two Bush signs on his property in Avon at the William Post Boulevard exit on Interstate 70. A “Bush/Cheney ’04” campaign sign was burned in Wolcott.

No signs promoting Democratic presidential hopeful John Kerry or Senate hopeful Ken Salazar have been reported damaged.

Cars owned by Eagle County resident Gunther Schmidt and his daughter, which carried Bush/Cheney bumper stickers, have also been targeted. While the damage was light — the bumper stickers were scratched off and the cars scratched — Schmidt said it’s not the extent, but the principle of free speech that matters.

“If you are for the Republican party, it seems to me that the Democrats take all kinds of measures to destroy your signs,” said Schmidt. “I thought we lived in a free country where you could express your opinion in a non-violent way, without being punished for it.”

Oxford, Mississippi

Oxford police are investigating a break-in over the weekend at the Bush-Cheney campaign headquarters in Oxford.

Andrew George, North Mississippi Field Coordinator for the Mississippi Republican Party, said he was heading to church in Oxford Sunday morning and noticed that something wasn’t right at the store-front headquarters on Van Buren Avenue at South 11th Street.

“They came in and broke out the window on the front door. They broke out another of the front windows,” he said.

George said it was an act of vandalism, not theft. Vandalism is a felony in Mississippi.

Huntington, West Virginia

Republican supporters in Huntington were watching their candidate accept the party's nomination when a gunshot rang out right in the middle of George W. Bush's speech.

"We heard a small snap, and felt glass come sliding by us. We looked up and saw a hole in our window and realized somebody was shooting at us", said Paula Stewart.

Witnesses tell police that someone fired a shot at the Republican Headquarters office at 1402 4th Avenue around 10:30pm Thursday night.

Twenty five people were inside facing the window, watching the speech on TV, when the shot was fire.

The bullet went over their heads.

IV. BARACK H. OBAMA

TONY REZKO:

Barack Obama has been friends with Antoin ("Tony") Rezko since at least 1990.

Rezko is a political fundraiser, restaurateur, and real estate developer in Chicago, Illinois, and has been involved in fundraising for local Illinois politicians since the 1980s.

He focused primarily on Chicago-area Democrats, and was one of Obama's first financial contributors, raising at least $150,000 for Obama's campaigns.

In return, Barack arranged an internship in 2005 for John Aramanda, the son of a Rezko business associate (Joseph Aramanda, who himself gave Barack $11,500.)

In June, 2005, Obama bought a house in Chicago for $1.65 million ($300,000 below the asking price). The same day, Rezko bought (in his wife's name) the vacant lot next door for $625,000, the full price asked. Seven months later, Rezko sold Barack a slice (1/6th) of his lot so the Obamas could have a bigger yard.

This year, 2008, Rezko was convicted on several counts of fraud and bribery.

Among other problems, Rezko is on trial in a federal government corruption case for demanding kickbacks from companies wanting to do business with Illinois Governor Blagojevich, another politician that Rezko has befriended and donated to.

Joseph Aramanda--who Obamas arranged an internship for-- is an unindicted co-conspirator in one of the kickback cases.


VICE PRESIDENT SELECTION TEAM:

One of the three members of the team that Barack Obama has assigned to search for a vice-president is Eric Holder .

While he served as Bill Clinton's Deputy Attorney General, Holder (Democrat) was the "key person who made the pardon of Marc Rich possible in the final hours of the Clinton presidency," writes Dick Morris.

Rich, a financier (and Democrat), was indicted for evading more than $48 million in taxes, and accused of more than four dozen counts of tax fraud. He also was accused of running illegal oil deals with Iran during the 1979-1980 time period when Americans were held hostage in Iran.

He fled the country and lived as a fugitive in Switzerland.

Another on the three-man team is long-time Democratic insider
Jim Johnson.

Johnson stands accused of, among other things, getting a seven million dollar below-market rate home loan from Countrywide Financial through an informal program set up for friends of the embattled mortgage company's CEO.

Obama has, in the past, used strong language in railing against Countrywide and other subprime lenders, making his association with Johnson--and Johnson's with the lender--awkward.

So far, Obama has yet to dismiss Johnson with his trademark "this is not the Jim Johnson I know" waiver.

The buffoonish situation now of "vetting the vetters" is not a promising start for a politician representing himself as an agent of "Change."

Instead, he's sounding more and more like just another Democrat (see above).

I. Bill Clinton, The Last Democratic President

RECORDS SET:

...
- Second president accused of rape
...

"Selene Walter accused Ronald Reagan of rape 39 years after the alleged assault in the 1950s. No further information is available on this case. The Juanita Broaddrick case involving Bill Clinton was investigated by the congressional impeachment counsel. According to counsel David Shippers those conducting the interview 'have assured me that she is the most credible witness that either one of them have ever talked to.'"

And Broadrick isn't the only one. Several other woman claimed they were sexually assaulted by Clinton and--unknown to each other--described the same tackling, lip-biting m.o.

GOP Official: If We Only Lose Eight Senate Seats, We Win
By Eric Kleefeld - June 9, 2008, 2:12PM
In a further sign that Republican hopes are fading badly, the head of the Senate GOP's campaign committee has set a new goal for the party this Fall: Not to lose too many Senate seats.

NRSC chair John Ensign has moved the goal posts, according to the Savannah Morning News, saying that the GOP will have succeeded if they don't lose more than eight seats.

Ensign pointed out that if the Dems win nine seats they'll get to the filibuster-proof magic number of 60 -- at which point, Ensign warned, "they will be able to do pretty much whatever they want."

So if the Dems can't get to a 60-seat super-majority, the GOP will have won. Talk about lowering the bar.

"Here's some trooth for them...

138 appointees of the Reagan administration either resigned under an ethical cloud or were criminally indicted.

'By the end of his term, 138 administration officials had been convicted, had been indicted, or had been the subject of official investigations for official misconduct and/or criminal violations. In terms of number of officials involved, the record of his administration was the worst ever.'"

Bullshit.

"40 government officials were indicted or convicted in the wake of Watergate. A reader computes that there was a total of 31 Reagan era convictions, including 14 because of Iran-Contra and 16 in the Department of Housing & Urban Development scandal. 47 individuals and businesses associated with the Clinton machine were convicted of or pleaded guilty to crimes with 33 of these occurring during the Clinton administration itself. There were in addition 61 indictments or misdemeanor charges. 14 persons were imprisoned.

A key difference between the Clinton story and earlier ones was the number of criminals with whom he was associated before entering the White House.

Using a far looser standard that included resignations, David R. Simon and D. Stanley Eitzen in Elite Deviance, say that 138 appointees of the Reagan administration either resigned under an ethical cloud or were criminally indicted. Curiously Haynes Johnson uses the same figure but with a different standard in "Sleep-Walking Through History: America in the Reagan Years: "By the end of his term, 138administration officials had been convicted, had been indicted, or had been the subject of official investigations for official misconduct and/or criminal violations. In terms of number of officials involved, the record of his administration was the worst ever."

You'll appreciate this one, John...

Democratic Rep. Dan Boren of Oklahoma said Tuesday Barack Obama is "the most liberal senator" in Congress and he has no intention of endorsing him for the White House.

However, Boren will vote for Obama at the Democratic National Convention in Denver in August and will vote Democratic on Nov. 4. [...]

Boren, the lone Democrat in Oklahoma's congressional delegation, said that while Obama has talked about working with Republicans, "unfortunately, his record does not reflect working in a bipartisan fashion."

Boren, a self-described centrist, is seeking a third term this year in a mostly rural district that stretches across eastern Oklahoma.

"We're much more conservative," Boren said of district. "I've got to reflect my district. No one means more to me than the people who elected me. I have to listen them." He called Obama "the most liberal senator in the U.S. Senate."


Let's watch how quickly the Democrats slit the traitor's throat at their first opportunity.

Hello! We are trying to reach all potential Republican voters in as timely fashion as we can. We are very concerned about the possibility of a temperamentally unfit candidate winning the presidency. Please consider writing in Duncan Hunter, Ron Paul on your ballot or your own personal choice. Here is a message from someone who knew McCain all too well. And, please, visit the designated website as soon as possible:

Greetings!

I was John McCain's Navy Flight Instructor --- in formation tactics and air-to-air-gunnery. I could write a book about this man. Suffice to state, I shudder (and I'm fearless) at the nightmare thought of this man becoming our next President and Commander in Chief. I am not alone as to this man's former shipmates, instructors and senior officers --- as to who and what this man is really all about. Although politics is really theater and the best performing actor gets to stay on the main stage --- sorta like American Idol only much more dangerous to all living things --- the performance and the make-over (re-invention) of this man is currently matched only by that of former LTC Oliver North, USMC (Ret.). Together on the same ticket, these two clowns would be real crowd pleasers in this sorry day and age of liars, banal dummies and limp-headed performers.

Thanx for having the guts to put the real deal information on the site re: John Sidney McCain III --- since the mainstream media is much too lazy to put the real story on McCain out there for the rest of their lazy consumers.

Best regards,

CDR Jerry K. Loeb, USN (Ret.) Palm Desert, CA

"Is the weenie repeating himself..."

You've been repeating your "Republicans Are Corrupt" mantra and "Abramoff!" this and "Delay!" that and posting the same rap sheets of perverts for several posts now, knucklead.

"Wouldn't you think a pack of losers like this would be angry at the criminals and perverts who destroyed their movement? But, no...they just keep justifying and denying!"

Do you realize what you're saying, and what you yourself are doing?

Are you so zombied out that you're utterly bereft of any self-awareness?

Evidently, or you're a thoroughly shameless sleaze with the ego of a five year old that has been taken over by psychological defense mechanisms.

I make no defense for any politician who betrayed the trust of their consituents. Not once did I "deny" or defend, but you did and are. You're even still cheerleading for the Impeached, twisted buffoon, Bill.

"...there was only one reason for any of the so called Clinton scandals maroon..."

A "Vast, Righ Wing Conspiracy?"

"...because they got a rabid partisan freak going after him with 75 million in public funds..."

lol

"...nothing but one big witch hunt..."

Right. "Just a blowjob."

That's what you're girlfriend is going to tell you when I teach her how to play the flute (because she's tired of blowing on a one-note little whistle).

I'm sure you won't mind.

Actually, I think it would turn you on.

Anyway, "witch hunt":

-Largest criminal plea agreement in an illegal campaign contribution case
- Only president to be held in contempt of court
- Only president disbarred from the US Supreme Court and a state court.

Dummkopf.

"...which is why Bubba was at 73 percent on the day of 'impeachment' and the public was laughing at Mister Hyde and the boys...."

Gee, where were they in '92 and '96?

The buffoon could never get 50% of the vote.

In '94, they slapped him *real* hard when he lost both houses of Congress (after decades of Democratic control).

And where was that "73%" in '04, when Dubya received the most popular votes in the history of democracy, buffo?

(Nice record, btw.)

"...and still there were more, bigger and more legitimate crooks under Reagan!!!"

You really should read before you vomit your bile, blockhead.

Again:

"Selene Walter accused Ronald Reagan of rape 39 years after the alleged assault in the 1950s. No further information is available on this case. The Juanita Broaddrick case involving Bill Clinton was investigated by the congressional impeachment counsel. According to counsel David Shippers those conducting the interview 'have assured me that she is the most credible witness that either one of them have ever talked to.'

And Broadrick isn't the only one. Several other woman claimed they were sexually assaulted by Clinton and--unknown to each other--described the same tackling, lip-biting m.o."

Furthermore, our depraved hero is credibly accused of rape--by a half dozen women--andf all you can say: "Well, what about Reagan?"

"SDI...looooooooooooooooooooooooney toons. Dreams of a senile old fool."

Gorbachev didn't think so.

And according to progress reports, that "dream" is quickly becoming a reality, troglodyte.

There's more to science than embryonic stem cells, transexual operations, and how Exxon-Mobil kills polar bears, Frankenstein.

"Wow...you buried them...all they got is joe blow lied to congress about something sometime... witchhunt scoreboards and insane rumors...no wonder they're on the way out the door."

No wonder you're an embarrassment to any intelligent and self-respecting Democrat who knows that the Clintons are the worst thing that's ever happened to the party and just wants them to shut up and go away.

"set

Right. "Just a flesh wound," eh, fool?

Federal judge at center of porn tempest has enjoyed long, distinguished career on the bench

PAUL ELIAS
AP News

Jun 12, 2008 06:51 EST

Alex Kozinski is more accustomed to appearing on lists to fill U.S. Supreme Court vacancies than headlines involving pornographic scandals.

But on Wednesday, the chief judge of the country's largest federal appeals court was forced to suspend an obscenity trial he was presiding over after sexually explicit images posted to his his family's Web site became public.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Kozinski had posted sexual material on his personal Web site and then blocked access after being interviewed about it Tuesday evening.

Kozinski, 57, told the Times he thought the material on his site, which included a video of a man cavorting with a sexually aroused farm animal, couldn't be seen by the public. The judge said he didn't believe any of the images were obscene.

President Ronald Reagan appointed him to the 9th Circuit, making him the youngest federal appellate judge in the country.

President George H.W. Bush seriously considered nominating Kozinski for high court openings in 1990 and 1991.

It's unclear whether Kozinski faces any court discipline. Circuit judges are appointed for life and can only be fired by Congress, though fellow jurists can impose censures.

He also said he would delete some material, including a picture of nude women on all fours painted to look like cows, which he called "degrading," the paper said.

Party Badly Split...

New Gang of 14 won’t back McCain


At least 14 Republican members of Congress have refused to endorse or publicly support Sen. John McCain for president, and more than a dozen others declined to answer whether they back the Arizona senator.


Many of the recalcitrant GOP members declined to detail their reasons for withholding support, but Rep. John Peterson (R-Pa.) expressed major concerns about McCain’s energy policies and Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) cited the Iraq war.





Republican members who have not endorsed or publicly backed McCain include Sens. Chuck Hagel (Neb.) and Jeff Sessions (Ala.) and Reps. Jones, Peterson, John Doolittle (Calif.), Randy Forbes (Va.), Wayne Gilchrest (Md.), Virgil Goode (Va.), Tim Murphy (Pa.), Ron Paul (Texas), Ted Poe (Texas), Todd Tiahrt (Kan.), Dave Weldon (Fla.) and Frank Wolf (Va.). [Wolf contacted The Hill following publication of the article to correct his staff’s error. His staff had said he has “yet to endorse McCain” and did not return follow-up phone calls this week].

Some Senate Republicans were especially irked with McCain’s role in the “Gang of 14” deal on judicial nominations.

Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.), who has been sharply critical of McCain on immigration, told The Hill in February, “I don’t like McCain. I don’t like him at all.”

"All the Left has it cut and paste talking points with trolls to paste them. How pathetic!!! What a JOKE!!!"

Indeed.

Once again:

Were someone to neurotically nitpick through the millions of crimes committed each year in the United States, the list of registered Democrats and party operatives would be a staggering hundreds of thousands, dwarfing their lists above (that are comprised of names I never heard of and, furthermore, cannot--and will not-- be verified).

They count on conservatives not being spiteful or obsessive enough to waste their time dredging up list after list of criminals who can be identified as registered Democrats and/or voters.

These are mindless minions, errand boys who just pass along compiled information from Alinsky-ite propagandists higher up on the food chain who have a low opinion of--and cynical faith in-- the intelligence of the "average" American, and insult it accordingly.

This is part of an organized strategy to once again turn the tables by inversion during a campaign season to distract from the fact that the Democrats are the party of criminals and sleaze, by the numbers, despite the attempt to suggest otherwise by a collected amount of law-breaking "Republicans."

Again, if they want to play that fool's game, they would finally be obliterated by the list of felons and prisoners who Congressional Democrats--to this day--are trying to give the right to vote to, because they would vote Democrat.

10% of the American population is in prison.

Do the math and realize that the cooked and spun lists posted here in a manic, frenzied manner are scraping the bottom of the barrel when it comes to "Republican" criinals (who, by their very shenanigans, do not have the moral fiber of true conservatives, anyway, but behave like liberals).

This now has nothing to do with which party best represents sleaze and crime, anyhow.

That this particular one doth protest so much--and shamelessly (if not blindly) engages in such spiteful, sleazy, low-level, and essentially childish "I-Know-You-Are-But-What-Am-I" tactics in an exploitation of the principle of free speech here and in an ego-driven effort to get the last word primarily because he had been repeatedly humiliated in front of a female he's been trying to impress, only compounds his own sleaze, and proves the point of this post.

Again, he cannot shout over these facts:

III. THE LAST TIME AROUND ('04 Election)

As reported:

York County, Pennsylvania

Cleanup will soon be under way at the Bush-Cheney Victory Center in York County for the fifth time this election season.

Vandals spray painted anti-Bush messages and "Vote Kerry" on the building and on the rented sign out front Wednesday night.

They also stole the letters from the sign out front which had been advertising a veterans event for this weekend.

"I just don't understand the mentality we're dealing with here. I mean, what are they proving? Because it's really, it's degrading to the other party to have this kind of vandalism going on," said Darwin Doll, headquarters coordinator.

The vandals hit other businesses and a barn along Route 74 just outside of Dallastown Wednesday night.

Doll said the Victory Center will now be equipped with security cameras.

Mercer Island, Washington

According to two Mercer Island men, signs supporting President Bush are an endangered species. Within days of going up in the affluent neighborhood, the signs disappear. So there the men were this week, camped in the dark woods with lawn chairs and a video camera, waiting for the thieves to strike. It only took three hours. At about 10 p.m. Tuesday, a 25-year-old Mercer Island man walked to a grassy area along the 6700 block of Island Crest Way and began to pull up Bush signs installed by the two men, police said.

The amateur detectives burst out of the woods and confronted the man, who was apologetic. The men detained him until police arrived.

One of the men, who did not want to be identified for fear of reprisals by Kerry supporters, said the anti-Bush sentiment in the neighborhood is extreme and angry. "They're entirely within their rights to protect their investment and make sure their views are protected," said Ross Marzolf, executive director of the King County Republican Party, which gave the men new signs.

Akron, Ohio

Two men who tore down a Bush-Cheney sign and urinated on it were caught on videotape by Summit County Republican officials early Friday morning.

The videotape shows the men sneaking into the yard of a West Market Street home and bending the sign to the ground. The men struggled to rip the sign out of the ground by shaking it and pulling it but couldn't get it off the posts, so they knocked it down. Sounds heard on the tape suggest the men urinated on the sign.

The homeowner, Steve Kotsatos, who is also assistant to the director of the Summit County Board of Elections, called Akron police dispatchers at 10:38 a.m. Friday and told them about how his campaign sign was vandalized.

He said he caught the vandals on a night-vision camera he had installed the day before.

"A couple of days ago my neighbor's sign was set on fire with a blowtorch so I figured I might be next,'' Kotsatos said. "This is not only criminal damaging but a safety hazard.''

The large 4-by-8-foot, red, white and blue sign was tipped over in Kotsatos' yard about 1 a.m. Friday.

John Kerry's name was scrawled across Bush's name in black marker on one side of the sign -- the work of previous vandals, Kotsatos said.

Tampa, Florida

Labor activists stormed President Bush's campaign headquarters in Tampa on Tuesday, part of an orchestrated event nationwide involving thousands of people protesting his policies on overtime pay.

No one was injured or arrested in Tampa, police said. Miami and Orlando also were among the 17 cities in swing- voting states where the AFL-CIO organized such events.

Protesters, including construction and hospital workers, were armed with postcards and petitions expressing their disapproval of Bush's overtime policies. Some held signs reading: ``Don't Take Away Our Overtime.'

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

More than 50 demonstrators supporting Democrat presidential candidate John Kerry stormed a Republican campaign office in West Allis at mid-day today, trespassing, creating a disturbance through the use of a bullhorn in the office and then refusing to leave when asked.

Graber called the latest incident part of a disturbing trend of criminal conduct by anti-Bush forces in Wisconsin, pointing to an incident in Madison last week in which Bush-Cheney yard signs were stolen from the yards of three homes. The vandals then used chemicals to burn swastikas into the lawns of the homes, which were within a two-block radius of one another.

In addition, reports of stolen, defaced and damaged Bush-Cheney campaign signs are surfacing throughout Wisconsin.

“Our volunteers, from children to the elderly, have every right to feel safe when they are working on behalf of a cause and candidates they believe in,” Graber commented. “This type of thuggish, intimidating conduct is absolutely unacceptable. It is time for John Kerry, the Wisconsin Democrat party, and Kerry’s campaign leaders, including Gov. James E. Doyle, to put a stop to this shameful behavior."

Orlando, Florida

A group of protestors stormed and then ransacked a Bush-Cheney headquarters building in Orlando, Fla., Tuesday, according to Local 6 News.
Local 6 News reported that several people from the group of 100 Orlando protestors face possible assault charges after the group forced their way inside the Republican headquarters office.

While in the building, some of the protestors drew horns and a mustache on a poster of President George W. Bush and poured piles of letters in the office, according to the report.

Knoxville, Tennessee

An unknown suspect fired several shots into the Bearden office of the Bush/Cheney re-election campaign Tuesday morning.

The headquarters are located at 4618 Kingston Pike, next to Noveau Classics and in the same shopping plaza as Long's Drugstore.

According to Knoxville Police Department (KPD) officers on the scene Tuesday, it is believed that the two separate shots were fired from a car sometime between 6:30 am and 7:15 am.

One shot shattered the glass in the front door and the other cracked the glass in another of the front doors.

Volunteers and staffers at the campaign office say they have no clues as to who might have committed the crime. However, they add that the shooting makes them even more enthusiastic and energized about working for their candidates.

"If I have to sleep here (at the campaign office) now, that's what I'll do," says volunteer Suzanne Dewar.

Bellevue, Washington

Three computers loaded with confidential campaign plans were reported stolen early yesterday in a burglary at President Bush's Washington state campaign headquarters.

Someone threw a rock through a window of the campaign's office in a suburban business park, taking laptops belonging to key campaign workers from the desk of the Bush campaign's state director, Bellevue police and Republican Party officials said.

The Bush campaign and local Republican officials say they're convinced the break-in was politically motivated. They say it appeared to be a targeted burglary and was suspiciously similar to a break-in four years ago at Bush's Bellevue offices.

Madison, Wisconsin

Someone burned an 8-foot-by-8-foot Nazi swastika on a home's lawn near where Bush-Cheney signs were posted. The vandals used grass killer to spray the symbol.

"I just cannot believe that someone would take the liberty to do this," said homeowner Rob Schaeffer. "We're appalled that someone would choose to destroy our property because they don't believe in our political views. My signs are going right back in the yard. This is my property. We live here. We have rights."

Police are investigating the criminal damage and told the homeowner it will be investigated as a hate crime, which carries stiffer penalties.

Avon, Colorado

Enough of the burning Bush and enough of the Avon chain saw massacre.

Vandals trespassing on his property to chainsaw the middle out of Republican campaign signs spurred landowner Magnus Lindholm Wednesday to offer a $5,000 reward for information leading the arrest of those responsible.

Earlier this week, somebody chain-sawed the middle out of two Bush signs on his property in Avon at the William Post Boulevard exit on Interstate 70. A “Bush/Cheney ’04” campaign sign was burned in Wolcott.

No signs promoting Democratic presidential hopeful John Kerry or Senate hopeful Ken Salazar have been reported damaged.

Cars owned by Eagle County resident Gunther Schmidt and his daughter, which carried Bush/Cheney bumper stickers, have also been targeted. While the damage was light — the bumper stickers were scratched off and the cars scratched — Schmidt said it’s not the extent, but the principle of free speech that matters.

“If you are for the Republican party, it seems to me that the Democrats take all kinds of measures to destroy your signs,” said Schmidt. “I thought we lived in a free country where you could express your opinion in a non-violent way, without being punished for it.”

Oxford, Mississippi

Oxford police are investigating a break-in over the weekend at the Bush-Cheney campaign headquarters in Oxford.

Andrew George, North Mississippi Field Coordinator for the Mississippi Republican Party, said he was heading to church in Oxford Sunday morning and noticed that something wasn’t right at the store-front headquarters on Van Buren Avenue at South 11th Street.

“They came in and broke out the window on the front door. They broke out another of the front windows,” he said.

George said it was an act of vandalism, not theft. Vandalism is a felony in Mississippi.

Huntington, West Virginia

Republican supporters in Huntington were watching their candidate accept the party's nomination when a gunshot rang out right in the middle of George W. Bush's speech.

"We heard a small snap, and felt glass come sliding by us. We looked up and saw a hole in our window and realized somebody was shooting at us", said Paula Stewart.

Witnesses tell police that someone fired a shot at the Republican Headquarters office at 1402 4th Avenue around 10:30pm Thursday night.

Twenty five people were inside facing the window, watching the speech on TV, when the shot was fire.

The bullet went over their heads.

IV. BARACK H. OBAMA

TONY REZKO:

Barack Obama has been friends with Antoin ("Tony") Rezko since at least 1990.

Rezko is a political fundraiser, restaurateur, and real estate developer in Chicago, Illinois, and has been involved in fundraising for local Illinois politicians since the 1980s.

He focused primarily on Chicago-area Democrats, and was one of Obama's first financial contributors, raising at least $150,000 for Obama's campaigns.

In return, Barack arranged an internship in 2005 for John Aramanda, the son of a Rezko business associate (Joseph Aramanda, who himself gave Barack $11,500.)

In June, 2005, Obama bought a house in Chicago for $1.65 million ($300,000 below the asking price). The same day, Rezko bought (in his wife's name) the vacant lot next door for $625,000, the full price asked. Seven months later, Rezko sold Barack a slice (1/6th) of his lot so the Obamas could have a bigger yard.

This year, 2008, Rezko was convicted on several counts of fraud and bribery.

Among other problems, Rezko is on trial in a federal government corruption case for demanding kickbacks from companies wanting to do business with Illinois Governor Blagojevich, another politician that Rezko has befriended and donated to.

Joseph Aramanda--who Obamas arranged an internship for-- is an unindicted co-conspirator in one of the kickback cases.


VICE PRESIDENT SELECTION TEAM:

One of the three members of the team that Barack Obama has assigned to search for a vice-president is Eric Holder .

While he served as Bill Clinton's Deputy Attorney General, Holder (Democrat) was the "key person who made the pardon of Marc Rich possible in the final hours of the Clinton presidency," writes Dick Morris.

Rich, a financier (and Democrat), was indicted for evading more than $48 million in taxes, and accused of more than four dozen counts of tax fraud. He also was accused of running illegal oil deals with Iran during the 1979-1980 time period when Americans were held hostage in Iran.

He fled the country and lived as a fugitive in Switzerland.

Another on the three-man team is long-time Democratic insider
Jim Johnson.

Johnson stands accused of, among other things, getting a seven million dollar below-market rate home loan from Countrywide Financial through an informal program set up for friends of the embattled mortgage company's CEO.

Obama has, in the past, used strong language in railing against Countrywide and other subprime lenders, making his association with Johnson--and Johnson's with the lender--awkward.

So far, Obama has yet to dismiss Johnson with his trademark "this is not the Jim Johnson I know" waiver.

The buffoonish situation now of "vetting the vetters" is not a promising start for a politician representing himself as an agent of "Change."

Instead, he's sounding more and more like just another Democrat (see above).

Obama Gains Among Women After Clinton Exit

Nice, especially the second headline. Still can't get the graph to load, so click on the headline to see them.



Now running as strongly vs. McCain among women as Clinton did

PRINCETON, NJ -- Since Hillary Clinton decided to concede the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama last week, Obama has established a lead over Republican John McCain in general-election polling. Obama's gains have come more from women than men, though he has picked up among both groups in recent days.

This post was called "The Democrats." The sign stealing incidences during the last presidential campaign was but one incident among several which included vamdalism, burglary, assault, and gunshots and fall under the general categorical behavior of a post called "The Democrats."

It is you, fool, who includes Santorum's private mourning for his dead infant with "high ranking Republican criminals."

What? Who? Clinton? He should be in shackles.

"well thutty mil a year'll keep you out of stir in GOPLandt"

Why do you think Clinton's not in shackles?

You know what kind of a legal bill he had when he left office?

Why do you think Barack's veep-selector told him to pardon Marc Rich?

And why do you think Clinton's golf buddy, O.J. Simpson, is not in shackles, for that matter?

(Gee, I wonder of O.J.'s a Republican or Democrat)

JOhn - Some of your list is a bit dubious - You include people who maintained their innocense thru trial.

In a previous post you appeared to argue that ex felons, as well as felons, should lose their voting rights - Now you want to up the score by going after the innocent? As if they have not suffered enough with legal bills and smashed reputations then have a jury say it was all for naught.

Obama did nothing wrong with knowing Rezko - There is no crime in buying a house below market price. It happens all the time. Beside it wasn't below market and he did not get any special price.

Did Obama do anything wrong? Who knows? But so far nothing has been established.

Most people (maybe including you?) believe Bush profited from insider trading on his Harken stock and that benefitted from a family friend at the SEC. But you know what? He was not convicted - So there you go.
If you did that same Clinton body count stuff with Bush you get similar numbers.

It's all partisan hype and paranoia.

"JOhn - Some of your list is a bit dubious - You include people who maintained their innocense thru trial."

The list is a lot less dubious than the frenzy of lists they posted about Republicans.

And I took out the "uninindicted" (but credible) accusations. They did not, and included allegations.

And maintaining of innocense does not mean innocense.

Surely most of the accused on their list maintained their innocense as well.

"In a previous post you appeared to argue that ex felons, as well as felons, should lose their voting rights - Now you want to up the score by going after the innocent?"

The point of the post was not about whether felons should be granted voting rights or not. I made no judgment on the matter. The point was that Democrats are pushing for that because it would help them win elections, since the overwhelming majority of felons are registered or presumptive Democrats.

And all that was in reaction to the latest, left-wing propaganda campaign that involves circulating lists of Republicans with ethical/legal problems to assert that the GOP is the party of criminals.

"As if they have not suffered enough with legal bills and smashed reputations then have a jury say it was all for naught."

Agreed, but they started it. Tell them.

"Obama did nothing wrong with knowing Rezko - There is no crime in buying a house below market price. It happens all the time. Beside it wasn't below market and he did not get any special price."

The Rezko relationship is damaging
because Rezko is known to have bribed politicians for quid pro quo favors.

It's a problem if it's discovered that Obama's public political power was somehow used to personally enrich Rezko in a returning favor kind of way.

"Did Obama do anything wrong? Who knows? But so far nothing has been established."

Right.

"Most people (maybe including you?) believe Bush profited from insider trading on his Harken stock and that benefitted from a family friend at the SEC. But you know what? He was not convicted - So there you go.
If you did that same Clinton body count stuff with Bush you get similar numbers."

No way. If so, a list would've been out and making the rounds long ago.

"It's all partisan hype and paranoia."

It's a lot of weird s**t as far as Clinton goes.

"I noticed on the Russert post a second annoymous commenter posted after me. I kind of thought his comment was a bit off base.
Anyway - People are people - There is no difference between Dems and Reps."

Well, there are differences in guiding party philosophies and the type of characters and ideologies that feel most at home in them, respectively."

"All the matters is how long one group is in power and subject to temptation and influence."

Nope. Compare Clinton's 8-year tenure with Bush's.

Bush is a Boyscout by comparison.
