Rep Cunningham Wore A Wire?

Published by under All General Discussions

Wow, this is some seriously interesting news via Wizbang Washington’s power players have always bragged about being well-wired, but for disgraced former congressman Duke Cunningham, “wired” wasn’t just a figure of speech. In a week when legislators are focused on the question of who else might be brought down by ex-lobbyist Jack Abramoff’s cooperation with […]

No Iraq-Al Qaeda Connections??

How did the moronic 9-11 Commission determine there were not contacts between Al Qaeda and Saddam’s Regime when there appears to be an incredible history of meetings in the 1990’s: 1996: Deputy IIS Director Faruq Hijazi meets with UBL (redacted) shortly after UBL returns from Qatar (redacted) 1998: Director of IIS, Mani abd al-Rashid al-Tikriti […]

The Left’s New Motto

Published by under All General Discussions

NY Times Is Open To Felony Charges

I am not lawyer, just know tons and have quite a few relatives who are. So as a well versed layman, I can say that Scott at Powerline has made a good solid case the NY Times and Washington Post are candidates for criminal prosecution. It is long and detailed so I won’t even try […]
