Possible Investigation of Criminal Witness Tampering in Troopergate!

20 10 2008

Well, well, well. Here’s yet another subplot in the saga that is Troopergate. Remember how witnesses, including state employees, Todd Palin and Sarah Palin herself agreed to cooperate fully with the Legislative investigation of Troopergate? If you don’t remember, it’s because that was beFORE August 29th, when Palin was selected to be John McCain’s running mate. It was a whole different world back then. That’s when this investigation made sense to Alaskans, and when we believed the word of our Governor. Now? Not so much.

Ten witnesses, including the Governor’s husband Todd, defied subpoenas to testify before the Legislative Council. When did this mysterious change of heart occur?

Once again, we need to rely on the courage and conviction of the bipartisan Legislative Council, and the likes of Representatives Les Gara to keep the Governor and her administration (including Attorney General Talis Colberg) honest. After the flock of McCain lawyers descended on our sleepy little hamlet, all the rules changed. Now, Les Gara and Audie Holloway want to know WHY. Good question.

ANCHORAGE — Today an Alaska legislator called on the State’s Attorney General to appoint an independent investigator to look into possible criminal witness tampering by McCain-Palin campaign staff in Alaska. Rep. Gara’s call came at the suggestion of the Director of the Alaska State Troopers, [Col. Audie Holloway], who called the potential of witness tampering matter “serious.”

But, as we know, these witnesses did eventually testify in writing, just days before the Legislative Council released the findings of Independent Investigator Stephen Branchflower. Does this make it all better? No.

Their later decision to submit to written questions, after failing to show up for their subpoenas, doesn’t cure this violation, or any criminal conduct by any person who attempted to induce those witnesses from showing for their subpoenas. Complying with the law after breaking it doesn’t excuse a criminal violation. If any person attempted to induce a witness to fail to show for a subpoena, that witness’ later cooperation, after failing to show for the subpoena, doesn’t cure the criminal conduct. (from attached letter to AG Talis Colberg from Rep. Les Gara)

Talis Colberg, who is under considerable public pressure to resign as Attorney General for how he handled these subpoenas, has something new on his list of things that won’t go away. Namely:

Alaska Statute 11.56.545 –

“(a)Tampering with a witness in the second degree: A person commits the crime of tampering with a witness in the second degree if the person knowingly induces or attempts to induce a witness to be absent from an official proceeding, other than a judicial proceeding, to which the witness has been summoned. (b) Tampering with a witness in the second degree is a class A misdemeanor.

AS 11.56.540 has similar elements, and is a felony.
The ball is in the court of the Department of Law.

Wow! It does get more interesting by the day, doesn’t it? Thanks for keeping those of us in the lower 48 aware of what’s going on. It’s seems to take a while to make the news here (Seattle), or it gets buried under all the other things out there.

So, one has to wonder, how can they possibly slip out of this mess they created? Makes me chuckle, except that it really is so serious.

I’m curious – is this all attributed to Talis Colberg, or is some laid at the feet of “McCain lawyers”?

If the latter, are any of their names known publicly?

The ring leader of the McCain legal team is Ed O’Callaghan, who, until sent to Alaska was a top terrorism lawyer operating out of NYC. Strange times. AKM

Yes; I believe I read an article on Huffington Post that said the investigator was traveling to wherever Governor Palin was for an anticipated 3 hour interview.

I took notice that Palin participated in a couple of off-the-cuff conversations with the press over the last week. Hope that continues.

Yes, Tim Petumenos, the special investigator hired by the Personnel Board will interview Palin this week at an undisclosed location out of Alaska. AKM

The plot thickens. And if Talis Colberg declines to act, boy will that make him look BAD! According to the letter, it seems that the Legislative Assembly might also be able to act if he doesn’t. That’s some pressure to put on a poor little worker’s comp lawyer from the Mat-Su.

I am eager to hear what Alaskans think is behind the Governor’s refusal to discuss her health or share any of her medical records. Is it an issue? Has it come up before? Do folks in her home state think it’s related to Baby Trig, or allegiance to McCain, or is there some other explanation/supposition entirely?

Please note: I’m trying to be respectful here and not suggest she’s had a compulsive lying chip implanted and is afraid it might be revealed.

It is heartening to see one man willing to take a strong and unwavering stance against the festering stinkhole that is Palin and her cronies. Hey, AKM, if Les Gara doesn’t know about your site, you should direct him to it so he can see how much of an affect he is having.

I’m not big on predictions but I feel that the name Les Gara will become well-known to all of us in the lower 48 in the near future. He is a relatively young man and has a huge political future ahead of him if he wants it. BTW-I see that he graduated in law from Harvard. Harvard doesn’t let the casual student in and a Harvard degree is a huge accomplishment.

I hope the citizens in Alaska have as high a regard for Les Gara as many of us in the lower 48 and Hawaii do. The same goes for Col. Audie Holloway as well. I, for one, sincerely hope more people in Alaskan government, like Les, Audie, and Walt Monegan keep on looking into abuses like they have been. I can only imagine that many in the AIP, these days, are more fired up than previously with Washington D.C. lawyers seemingly taking control of Alaska’s government and politics as it appears they have been. While I am not behind the AIP’s goals in the least, I can understand the anger it raises in them.

Keep up the great work, AKM and Les !

I read somewhere, way back in the beginning, that SWWNBN was on anti-depressants. I would think that would count for something.

off topic: The pugs are talking about releasing the fires of hell. Drug use, Wright, etc….I assume that the Obama campaign has plenty of extinguishers on hand, but the problem is this: McLiar is now reaching the “less well informed” units in this country… he’s in the back woods of places. They will believe him because he’s white. I hate that it comes down to that for people, but I am not naive enough to think it doesn’t.

I am beginning to hate this political thing. I am a roller coaster of emotions. I cry with glee at Obama’s speeches… at his touching stories of interaction with the lost… at the photos of him meeting gazes with children. Then I FUME with anger when I read what McHate and McDiscontent are saying in their “rallies”. I swear, they just need hoods.

I perhaps need to break away from the computer. I already don’t watch TV. I am not sure how to deal with this stress. Does anyone else feel like this? And I do have hope that Obama will win, but then I anticipate all the GOP wheels spinning out of control with lawsuits, complaints, bullying, etc……This is going to be rough no matter what.

I almost envy the people who are not following anything at all. Almost.

I’d read that also about the anti-depressants.

I wouldn’t get too worried by whatever the other side might come out with, those who will believe it have already decided to vote for McCain. The nastiness of his campaign is impacting the “thinking” electorate against him.

So, Sarah believes that Roe v. Wade should be decided on a state by state basis, but gay marriage requires a rewrite of the Constitution? She’s not even consistent in her inconsistencies. I read on some blog that having her come out with anti-gay marriage rhetoric was actually a tactical decision by the McCain camp. He can seem like the more socially tolerant one while having her energize the base. It’s a two-fer: hypocrisy AND bigotry. Those two sure do know their audience, eh?

As I stated in other posts, I am a Republican and was slightly leaning toward McCain. He wasn’t my choice but I figured that a good VP could mellow him out. When he picked Caribou Barbi as his running mate I did some quick research on her and swung my vote to Obama. After about six hours of research on Barbi I was really disturbed. Think of all of her public statements; if she became President and her beliefs ruled her actions as President this country would sink into anarchy. Just her statement on global warming scares me. Go to this site:

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=14288215

This will scare you. All of the computer models on global warming are wrong. Global warming scenarios will have to be greatly accelerated.

If she runs the country like the rapture will come soon civilization will cease to exist. Her penchant for getting rid of experienced personnel and replacing them with friends and supporters will affect the operations of government. Her vindictiveness toward anyone that questions her will rattle the foundations of Congress. I could go on and on but you get what I mean. This woman has to be stopped.

@Ripley…oh my dear…I know exactly how you feel. As a Canadian I also feel guilty and somewhat silly….because we wont even have Obama as our leader no matter what.

I so desperately though, want the US to be the country that I remember…the place it hasnt been for a few years.

Did all this happen after 9/11? I think perhaps the religious right really gained a foothold then…when the nation was in shock and in mourning.

I watched a CBS show called the Passionate Eye last night…called..Jesus Politics. Very interesting, and somewhat frightening.

Anyway…I wont rest until this election is over and Obama has won. Even my husband, who has a difficult time being interested even in our politics is watching events unfold. I often find him watching Obama on TV…and last week I took in the debate in my bedroom so as not to disturb him. Imagine my surprise when I went out to the kitchen for a drink…and I found him watching the debate as well. Transformative indeed.

Shouldn’t the Troopergate investigation , for reasons of proof of continued ethics violations, ask Harris about being hounded to fire Bitney , since he was hired by him?
http://www.blackstarnews.com/?c=135&a=4856

“Bitney soon took a job with the Alaska Speaker of the House, John Harris (R-Valdez), to conduct research
on legislative and budget issues. Harris issued a strong statement in support of the hiring: “John Bitney has
extensive experience with the Legislature, having worked for many years for the late Rep. Ron Larson, former
Rep. Terry Martin, and others. John’s intimate knowledge of state budgets, as well as his recent experience
advocating for the Governor’s gas pipeline bill, will be very helpful in the process going forward into the
coming legislative sessions.”

But according to sources, the Palins and Scott Richter dogged him in that job, too, trying to pressure Harris
to get rid of him. Harris resisted. Bitney still has his job.

The Palins’ interference into the private lives of their once close associates did not end the romance. According
to the Juneau Empire, Bitney and Richter (Ribelin) took out a marriage license in Juneau this past month and
were married on August 23 at a fishing camp in Soldotna, Alaska. Speaker Harris officiated.

Sarah and Todd Palin were not invited.”

I agree, it should be a non-issue, but of course, it would be with the fundy base. And it would be yet more proof of hypocricy (like we needed more, but it might affect independents).

And the chances of us finding out anything about her medical records are slim to none, because she just won’t play by the same rules as everyone else, so mavericky, doncha know, also?

No matter how much hypocrisy is revealed, the fundies will still like Palin, as your average fundy is just as big a hypocrite as she is. Tell others to do one thing, do whatever you like yourself. If anything, hypocrisy on Palin’s part gives fundies a reason to feel good and justified about their own hypocrisy.

Good news, Mudflatters! Read the first article on the dailykos.com

Looks like the Wicked Witch of the (Mid)West, Michele Bachmann, is coming home! Yay for America! Boo for Minnesota. (It’s titled, “MN-06: Bachmann Screwed”). Ya gotta love the fact that the Republicans are slow to catch on to how fast and furious the internet is!

Hehehe… I love this part:

“Meanwhile, Bachmann has been chided by Republicans such as Colin Powell…and even her role model Sarah Palin:

Speaking with reporters in Colorado yesterday, Palin said she does not agree with Rep. Michele Bachmann’s recent comments suggesting that some congressmen hold “anti-American views,” NBC/NJ’s Matthew E. Berger reports. “Well that’s quite subjective,” she said of Bachmann’s comments. “I would think that anybody running and wanting to serve in Congress is quite pro-American because that’s what the mission is, to better this country, so I would question the intent of that.”

You’ve got to hand it to Bachmann; you’ve really hit the big time when you make Sarah Palin look reasonable.

Everyone I talk to agrees that the McPalin strategy of late is not appealing to the undecided or Independent voters that McSame needs to woo right now. His base will vote for him no matter what, and those are the only people who believe him about Ayers, socialism, etc. He’s got his base in the bag and needs to come up with a more central message.

All he did with the Ayers nonsense is give a get out of jail free card to racists who weren’t going to vote for Obama anyway. Now they can say they didn’t vote for Obama because he’s a muslin terrier, not because he’s black, silly!🙂

As far as her medical records go, I think it is pharmaceutical drugs that would show up. If she had a checkup today, more than likely a past abortion would not be commented on. A simple blood test, though, could be problematic.

I’ve said it before, if I have to get a drug test to work for a convenience store, shouldn’t all of our representatives be required to do the same?

I don’t think there is a law requiring release of medical history of a candidate. It has become somewhat expected, I think after the Eagleton campaign, but no law REQUIRES it.

Looks like McCain only picked up 2 from the D column last year… and that’s a surprise in intself! And the differential in circulation between those papers endorsing Obama is even greater than simply the number of papers.

She is a cynic playing to the crowds for her own glorification. She wants to sell books and ad space just like the rest of the Conservative Cynics. For these underbelly of the American fabric, it is not about serviing your country but about exploiting the fears and hatreds of the undereducated Religilous Americans for their own self-gratification and profit. Totally un-American and un-Christian.

The Conspiracy Theorists (CT) with all their “Obama is a terrorist. Obama is a baby-killer. Obama is a traitor. Obama is Arab. Obama was born in Africa. Obama is an Indonesian citizen. Obama is the Black Panther Party. Obama is ACORN.” did get one CT right. Obama believes in Liberation Theology. And, rightfully so. Anybody who believes in a woman’s right to vote, or the education of poor children, health care for the elderly, gay rights, or the fight against racism believes in Liberation Theology! Thank God Obama and Biden believe more in “prophet” than “profit.” They are the true Christians and the true Americans!!!

Long Lines Form As Early Voting Begins In Florida

(AP) Florida kicked off early voting on Monday, with record crowds heading to the polls and voters waiting hours to cast their ballots. Elections officials said the few reported problems were minor.

Final statewide numbers for ballots cast Monday won’t be available until Tuesday, but counties large and small, traditionally Democrat and traditionally Republican, were reporting record turnout. The early voting sites will remain open two weeks until the weekend before Election Day.

well- I don ‘t even have to read the article. If McCain wants to wage war everywhere on the planet except arizona and alaska, there will HAVE to be a draft.

RNC On New Mexico “Voter Fraud”: Never Mind

Ripley AKA Copper Hussein Catfish in CT

The thing about not releasing factual information is that it INVITES speculation. I have frankly decided that since the Repugs can speculate and spread vicious lies as TRUTH, I can speculate here about things related to what is not released. Of course, I don’t present any of my opinions as TRUTH, as does the GOP, but simply as options. If enough people think about things enough times, perhaps the pressure to release truthful information will win out.

I have personally engaged in plenty of educated, documented, intelligent discourse here. And to be accused of starting a catfight, along with anyone else who might agree with some of my speculation, is frankly offensive. A catfight is only possible if the other cat shows up. I seriously doubt she will.

Sometimes one needs to let off a bit of steam. And biting back at SWWNBN is becoming something of a hobby for us here. Mostly it is all true. Mostly. And if it’s speculative, then we wait for the confirmation or denial of said speculations with the same amount of rapt attention.

The woman lies and hides things. We want to know what they are. That’s it.

I loved Tammy Faye in her other reality TV starring role opposite her son in “One Punk Under God.” Jim baker on the other hand still the Religilous Right preacher-politician. Yuk!

Who knows, maybe Sarah Palin will get some-of-that old-fashioned true-to-life Tammy Faye Christianity and denounce the hate-spewing, race-baiting, self-righteous, Karl Rove is God religious Republicanism. The Lord knows the vacuum is wide open for a true “born-again” Christian in the fashion of the Surreal Life Tammy Faye to hit the national scene running.

Shikago aka Chief Hussein Shikago (15:18:49) : @NMJ (15:09:47) :Hey thanks for noticing… But I was responding to a post stating that the repugs were going to unlease the fires of hell on Obama…

If they …release the fires of hell, as you said, could we somehow fight to counter that with our own napalm? even though I DON’T LIKE THOSE TACTICS. But WAR IS WAR.

NMJ it was just a thought, as I said at the end of the post. If the Republican War Machine releases the fires of hell, What do you suggest we do?

Shikago, correct me if I’m wrong, but I got the impression from your post that we should do what the Rethugs do; make stuff up and spread it around. If you’ve noticed, that sort of thing has been sending their campaign to the basement because voters, especially Independents, don’t like it. Obama gives them the rope and lets them hang themselves, then he effectively uses it against them.

Didn’t you wonder why, in the third debate (Oct. 15), when JM went on about Dem voter fraud destroying the very fabric of democracy (or something like that), all Obama did was smile? He anticipated that; McCain walked right into a trap! The next day, the McThug campaign was in full cry about Obama and voter fraud. Then, WHAM! on October 17, Bob Bauer, General Counsel for Obama’s campaign fired off a 7-page letter to Mike Mukasey, Attorney General of the Justice Dept. and Nora Dannehy, Special Prosecutor, accusing the Bush Administration, senior officials in the Justice Department, the Republican Party, and the McCain campaign of colluding on bogus claims of voter and registration fraud in order to manipulate election results. This is very serious stuff! This is the first time a Democrat candidate did anything other than recognize manipulation, acknowledge it, and sit around whimpering and wringing hands. That’s why we Dems lose so many elections. Obama struck back, and he did it prior to the election! You can read the letter here:

BTW, what do we do? We do what our future Commander-In-Chief tells us to do. This is what wins the battles, while he wins the war.

I agree about Palin being star-struck. I think the last thing she wants to do is really work hard at any of the jobs to which she has been elected. She was a lousy mayor, an absentee governor and she would be a nightmare of a vice president. It’s pretty obvious that the day-to-day mundane tasks of actually participating in government have no interest for her. She has no interest or intellectual curiousity in national affairs, foreign affairs or even more alarming domestic affairs.

However, what she does appear to have a very strong interest is, is adulation and attention. And after watching her on SNL the other night I realized she doesn’t even care if it is good attention or bad attention. She just revels in the attention.

I think she suffers from emotional retardation and still thinks she is back in high school where she was the homecoming queen.

Also everytime I see her I’m newly jarred by the disturbing fact that this woman (according to her) is the mother of a special needs 6 month old baby. My heart bleeds for that baby.

I sincerely doubt medical records would show an abortion. I sort of doubt they would even show anti-depressants, stds or tubal litigation. She seems to have her doctor pretty well-trained. The only thing I can think they might show that might prove embarrasing is the lack of any sort of pre-natal care in the last year up and including the day she gave birth.

I thought Sarah Palin was a very strange duck (and still do) but then I learned all about MIchelle Bachmann this weekend. Who the hell are these crazy women??????? And why do they all believe they working under the direct auspices of God almight himself? I mean, if this is who God picks to spread his message, what does this say about God?

Tacked up prominently on a wall in Sarah Palin’s downtown campaign headquarters is a newspaper clipping with a picture of two signs beside the trans-Alaska oil pipeline. The first one reads,
“Canada my ass, it’s Alaska’s gas.” Underneath it, the second sign says, “Sarah Palin.”

That defiant message strikes just the right tone for Palin’s gubernatorial campaign.
——————
Wow. Brilliant.
The pipeline has to travel through 2000 miles of Canada, plus several first nations (who have sovereignty) before it gets to the lower ’48, and she puts this on her campaign HQ wall???
ANWR abuts a Canadian counterpart wildlife refuge. The waters and hence underwater boundaries are neighboring.
This is her idea of foreign policy?

I hate to tell her but Ak does not supply 20% of the US fuel. She says it’s 20% but it’s more like 12%. I’ve even heard lower estimates.
Since Canada is the top importer of both crude and LNG to the US:

Sarah Palin resigns as McCain’s running mate to launch her campaign to become the next conservative achor of Fox Noise. As part of her campaign, her family will be part of a new Fox Reality Show named “Gov24/7” which will feature all the ups-and-downs in the every day life of the Alaskan Governor and mother of 5.

knikgoose HUSSEIN!! justaskin

Okay, I hauled all this crap together re: Housegate

It’s a lot of stuff, but it shows who and how they had the “buddies” to build the house,..and not far-fetched, IMHO.

I think I found the ‘gun’ but can’t tell if it’s ‘smoking’.
It’s a bit of a convoluted trip, but I need to point out some odd things along the way, which I can’t explain, but my sixth sense tells me, is important.
I had this rotten smell going off about Scott Richter trying to seal his divorce papers, then about Bitney getting fired but not Debbie Richter.
So, here goes.

Okay, first bit that puzzles me.
In the PFD (Alaska Permanent Fund) where Palin made her buddy (with no qualifications) the Director, in 2005-2006 there was an Investment Officer by the name of Eric F. Richter. He left, in a hurry about the same time that Palin decided to run as Governor. (He still hasn’t filled out his last financial statement- for some odd reason)
It’s pretty hard to find any info on this guy, it almost seems to have been ‘scrubbed’, considering he was a public employee.
The only way I found that he had ever worked there, was from this site,

http://finance.myfoxchicago.com/www.coastfl.com?GUID=5816057&Page=MediaViewer&ChannelID=3197

“Mr. Richter was a Vice President/ Portfolio Manager for HarbourView Asset Management & Oppenheimer Funds Inc. since February 2006. Mr. Richter has an extensive background in structured products, and was focused on the AAArdvark products, specializing in residential mortgage-backed securities, commercial mortgage-backed securities, asset-backed securities, and collateralized debt obligation investments. Prior to joining Oppenheimer Funds/HarbourView, Mr. Richter was an Investment Officer at the Alaska Permanent Fund Corp.

Okay, that’s one of those weird things I wanted to point out, since he seems to have been erased from the history of the Alaska government, except for:
http://www.zoominfo.com/people/Richter_Eric_99974338.aspx?PersonID=99974338&lastName=Richter&firstName=Eric&id=99974338&searchSource=page&page=2

And: his incomplete financial disclosure.

https://webapp.state.ak.us/apoc/public_officials.jsp

So, now Palin gets into office and puts her friend, Debbie Richter (still married to Scott and maybe not having an affair,…yet) into the position of Director of a $30B + fund. Whatever.

Palin’s and Richter are partners on a number of Real Estate deals. How many before these were disclosed, who knows, since the purchases of Richters, Palins, and Richter Investments LLC, can easily be confused, especially with the LLC covering their butts. But, I have tried to post as many of these properties held by either, or both parties as possible, so you can see where I’m going here:
http://www.matsugov.us/myproperty/detail.aspx?taxID=1142000T00H

http://www.matsugov.us/myproperty/detail.aspx?taxID=2357B04L012-1

http://www.matsugov.us/myproperty/detail.aspx?taxID=1054B01L003

Todd Palin is also a partner on this property:
http://www.matsugov.us/myproperty/detail.aspx?taxID=1231000T00E
(Note: This is 5 acres)

And the partner(s) own this:

http://www.matsugov.us/myproperty/detail.aspx?taxID=3039000L002

http://www.matsugov.us/myproperty/detail.aspx?taxID=4833B02L022A

(Apparently related to his former business partner, Brad Hanson- that’s a guess, okay?)

(So, much for Joe Six-Pack average ppl,..anyway….)

I warned you, this is convoluted.
Scott Richter’s property outside of Wasilla is at Big Lake. Now, I know there are loads of “Richter’s in Ak but, there are a lot living in Big Lake and Scott Richter’s phone comes up as
(907) 376-3966 for the address in Wasilla, and
(907) 892-3966 which is a BigLake number.
Now, I’m not saying anything about the last 4 digits being identical, except that he also has a business. There is also a listing under “Stone Richter” with many assorted numbers, many of which come back to:

If she has nothing to hide why doesn’t she just release it–didn’t we have a similar conversation about her reluctance to answer questions at the troopergate hearings? Seems there is a lot she doesn’t want to talk about.

And the funny thing is that every time she doesn’t want to talk about something or fights tooth and nail to make sure whatever she’s hiding will stay hidden, it turns out to be something that she did wrong – like bad-wrong, not just oops-wrong.

One good aspect of this is that she’ll never be able to claim that she didn’t know the wrong thing was done or that she didn’t know it was wrong. *Snickers*. The more she hides, the more is found, the deeper she gets into trouble, the less her chances to wreak havoc in the future.

This is a great review

“Relishing the underdog mantle

For a moment I thought the McCain-Palin campaign had changed its slogan. In the car park here in Belton, Missouri I saw a bus, with big colour pictures of the two candidates grinning from the side, and in-between them words along the lines of “Stop the Obama campaign.” It wasn’t THE campaign bus though, just a supporter’s group rallying the faithful. Someone nearby was shouting: “Obama! Socialist!”

‘Schleppers’ Run Into Tough Crowds

“I was down there as a 19-year-old talking to these people who have been voters for half a century, Andrew said. “They would not afford me any credibility — I had to win them over.”

He compared this election to that of 1960, when most of the people sitting at that table chose a youthful John F. Kennedy as president. He also found similarities between Obama’s economic programs and those of Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was very popular among this contingency.

“The older generation always has this mindset that the old educate the young,” Steinmetz said. “This election is really turning that convention on its head.”
And Bender’s own grandparents? “They both said that they’re voting in this election for their grandchildren,” he said, pulling the lever for Obama.

The woman who said Obama was an Arab (irrelevant by the way, nothing more or less wonderful about being of Arab ethnicity), was interviewed by an individual at the rally. It isn’t the best quality video as it has campaign music in the background. But the woman-75 year old Gayle Quinnel-says she got the info in a Repub letter. So incensed was she that she had 400 copies of it made at Kinkos, then mailed them. Gayle confirms many McCain volunteers at the local headquarters believe the same thing.

Seems to me there is a real danger in the lies and smears being perpetrated by McPalin.

The military is taking non Americans (but we give em citizenship if they die), criminals, and upping the age of who can serve.

Has anyone else noticed that Palin’s refusal to discuss her medical records takes attention away from the issue of McCain’s medical records? It allows their supporters to turn the issue into another example of press persecution and they are still making the now false claim that Obama only released a one page Doctor’s letter. Their whole intent is to eat up “news cycles.” They really don’t care what gets said on the “Internets”, because they are aiming at low information voters – last minute deciders, non-internet users who mainly want to choose people “just like” themselves.

Racists for Obama?

New polling and a trickle of stories from the battleground states suggest that Sen. Barack Obama’s coalition includes one unlikely group: white voters with negative views of African-Americans.

“What you see is it’s perfectly possible to hold a negative view of at least one aspect of African-Americans and yet simultaneously prefer Obama,” said Charles Franklin, a political scientist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. “Racial feelings are not as cut and dried — not as black and white — as people often say.”

Some West Virginian’s Question if Their Vote is Being Counted

Posted Monday, October 20, 2008 ; 07:29 PM

Voters report problems with touch screen voting machines.

Story by Nicky Walters

CHARLESTON — Some problems with early voting are creating concern for some across the Mountain State.

People in Putnam and Jackson counties have complained about the accuracy of the touch screen voting machines being used in their counties.

West Virginia Secretary of State Betty Ireland says the touch screens are sensitive and need to be calibrated from time to time.

She says if a voter is concerned about the machine they are using, they should ask poll workers to move them to another machine.

“We need the voter to tell us when there’s a problem and we need poll workers to help,” Ireland said. “We all need to work together to have fair clean elections in West Virginia.”

Ireland says as of Friday 21,000 West Virginians had already voted. So far five complaints have been registered to the Secretary of State’s office.

@Nebraska Native AKA Froth Hussein Failin & Chief Hussein Shikago, the media has slowly been curbed and tamed and tamped since W. took over. Then, Sept. 11th happened, and it was like a moratorium on the truth was issued. McCain and Palin have only taken it to its logical conclusion–complete and utter control over the media.

I agree that Palin shouldn’t be covered until she agrees to do a sit down interview on “Meet the Press” or something like that and until she as press conferences. It goes both ways. I am disturbed by how brazenly McCain and Palin are flaunting their disrespect for the media, but to be fair, traditional media isn’t putting up much of a fight. Just like after 9/11.

Unfortunately, for the sizable faction of Republicans who only watch FOX News and listen to Limbaugh and his ilk, it wouldn’t matter what the traditional media said about La Palina anyway.

More proof that Senator Barack Obama knows what is right. So sorry to hear his grandmother is ill.

I think the campaign will take care of itself for a couple of days. Public opinion will only condemn the McCain camp more if they take this opportunity to further malign Obama.

On a better note, many of us have already voted and WE can get Obama’s back by reaching others as he reaches out for his family.

I think Barack is only taking Thursday and Friday off and returning to the campaign trail on Saturday, from what I heard on Countdown tonight.

For all the folks who are questioning Sarah Palin’s last pregnancy, here’s several minutes of video supposedly when she was 7 months along
—————————————————–
She was 7 months pregnant when the video was made and Trig was born 1 month later and weighed 6 lbs. Hard to believe.

I’m already in tears hearing that Barak Obama’s Grandmother is ill. I will be saying numerous prayers for their entire family daily.

It makes me sad, because Barak Obama has already lost both parent’s, and now he may lose the lovely grandmother who raised him to become the courageous man of integrity that he is today. 😦

**Off Topic: Obama asked that everyone lay off the kids, so can we please repect his request and not speculate about Trigg?

Just DISGUSTING. Truly. Especially the ones who think it’s about his birth certificate. SO ironic, since it is JOHN McCAIN who actually wasn’t born in the US and not on a US base either.

@ Dragon Lady (17:32:01):

So sorry :o) But we’re talking politics… you know, McCain and Palin and Todd being like the three Musketeers… *snickers*… wondering if Palin will decide that she wants to be a star in the Milkyway once she gets slapped out of politics, even though she’d have to leave the considerable Bounty from her mayor and governor years behind… lamenting the fact that there’ll never be a Babe Ruth in her collection of airplane and sports equipment children… waiting for the Crunch when she gets hit with lawsuits back home… shall I go on?

On the upside, if this makes it too tempting, remember that good cookies consist of grains, milk, protein (from nuts), fruit (throw in a dab of jam), and vegetables (chocolate = cocoa bean – sounds like a vegetable to me, or else make it a legume). Worthy of being declared food-pyramid-healthy. In short, cookies are good for you.

I love my logic side :o)

Re; The juneau video w/allegedly pregnant gov…..

I don’t know if I’ve ever even seen the skinniest celebrity looking as UN-7-months-pregnant as she is looking (if you buy the story that she was pregnant). And the skinny high heel boots for a 7-mo-preggers person? If you’re Gwen Stefani, maybe. I could get by with big shirts until about 6 months, people would tell me that they couldn’t tell, but I can tell you that at 7 months it was a totally different story, and I had an itsy bitsy baby.

If any of you had followed the firings of the U.S. Attorneys you will remember that a possible judgeship position was used as a carrot on a stick to some of these U.S. Attorneys to just slip away quietly. Thank heavens for the blogs and constant questions………

Help!! Of Topic.:

I just wanted to share this wih you and see what you think. Yesterday my daughter attended church that my family has attended for years in San Bernardino, California. My husband and I recently moved about 45 minutes away and are looking for a new church home. This said, my daughter called me yesterday horrified. The pastor, who my family have always had much respect for, asked church members to meet him in the church auditorium if they wanted to discuss the coming election and/or get clarification on issuesand policies. My daughter rushed to the auditorium. She said that she looked around and noticed that there were mostly elderly people there and she was the youngest to attend. (She’s thirty something). She said one elderly lady was crying and saying that she had always voted Republican but was seriously thinking about voting for Obama. My daughter said that the pastor and his deacons jumped all over the elderly lady, telling her that they were all Republicans and that God would want her to vote for McCain because the Bible said that same-sex marriage was a sin and that was ahat the Obama campaign was all about. My daughter said they literally lectured these mostly elderly people on continuing to vote Republican without giving them any of the policies the two candidates were offering rhe people. My daughter was appalled that the pastor and the deacons were all Republicans when they do sermons teaching against the sins of lying and deceit. She was horrified that these men of the cloth were choosing to overlook that McCain and Palin were/are outright liars, hatemongers and are playing with fire when they whip their rallies up to hateful frenzies with lies of Obama being a terrorist and a Socialist. The pastor never informed these members that a vote for McCain would be a vote against what would be best for them economically. I am fuming. I told my daughter to find out if they were going to have another meeting so I could attend and voice my opinion. We are no longer members of that church, but I think that these church members should be informed about the issues and the policies so that they can make informed choices that will benefit themselves and America. I truly believe that these members are creatures of habit and will vote as they always have without facts, that the pastor should have given them. I told my daughter that I would consult with the Mudpuppies concerning what to do. Do you think we could flood the church with emails or phone calls? It still will not informed the members of the church about presidential candidates and what they are up against. What do you think?

You know, I’m real curious about her medical records. Is it possible maybe that it would show that some time in the past that she she recieved a Tubaligation if that is the correct term? That would surely blow any credibilty she might have thought she had. What’d ya think?

20 10 2008

Regarding the medical infor: my guess is that Trig is not her kid. That story of flying back from TX made absolutely no sense. I think she was covering up for the fact that Bristol is the mother. Her “doctor” was given an award or something after she became governor, my guess is for payback for the coverup. I know Obama said not to take on the kids, but this is about her medical records. If she has nothing to hide, the records would have been released.

The church in san BErnardino has jeopardized their irs and their state tax exemptions.
Members need to object; they broke laws–they should be reported to higher church authorities asap, and let those guys handle it.

Good luck, a serious matter, my family’s
lutheran pastor did (and more) that many years ago in LA area. He was replaced and the church was re-focused away from VERY OBNOXIOUS right-wing activity.

She can’t release her medicals cuz they will show she didn’t really have that baby couple months, ago. Haaaaa haaaaa haaaaa, she will be busted soon after the election or whenever y’all recall her lying ass or whenever someone with some nuts up there continues to take her to task for walking all over her ‘subjects’.

Hopefully, all this ‘action’ will not be forgotten after the election. It will be interesting, also, to see who is paying the attorneys to defend her through all of this.

One way to show the love: donate to the Democratic party in Alaska’s campaign (Les Gara and David Guttenberg’s (BOTH replied to me via email regarding Troopergate and BOTH were/are on OUR side!) – even $5.

I have NEVER been involved in donating, calling people I do not know, basically doing what it takes to fight the evil Republinazis like I am this year….it feels REALLY good!

I cannot wait for Palin to lose and to be thrown to the wolves! And, muddies, if McCain and Palin do not lose, we need to be on Congress’ ASS 24/7 to SAVE America!

I’ve been screaming about this for weeks. What I still want to know is where is the FBI? If the McCain people went over state lines to make mischief with a legal proceeding, doesn’t that all by itself constitute a federal crime? Leavenworth. Marion. That’s what I want to hear. And not Allenwood — that’s where they have tennis courts, I believe.

I just can’t believe that this blatant misuse of power is not getting more television coverage. The news outlets should be refusing to cover anything Sarah Palin until she decides to show her face and answer some damn questions in front of the camera. This needs to break big and either ruin the campaign or force McCain to choose another running mate.

I think we are too far along for him to toss out Palin, but he should have done this the minute he heard about this whole abuse of power crap. Maverick my ass.

>>I think we are too far along for him to toss out Palin, but he should have done this the minute he heard about this whole abuse of power crap.<<

The minute he heard about it? That would be the minute he sent that team up there ostensibly to “vet” her (failing to mention that the time to “vet” her was weeks before), probably loaded down with wads of cash, threats, and promises of a better life if they played ball.

I hope it comes out that this all began the minute those clowns stepped off those planes.

And by the way, I wonder what her dunderhead fan club thinks of the fact that she’s being sued by the police organization. Maybe they figure that organization isn’t part of the real America.

One thing I’m starting to think might really happen, and it will be so fantastic, is that this smartass dolt, who thinks she can wiggle up to a mike and hoodwink America, is gonna get hers big time. I feel sorry for the kids, but I hope to God this woman gets brought down, with her little dog Todd too.
