Justice Department Report

Dr. Donald Shields will be testifying before the House Judiciary Committee regarding his study of the political profiling of Democrats by the Ashcroft/Gonzales Justice Department this Tuesday. It will either be covered on C-Span or webcast, depending on what other threats to the Republic the Bushies have going next week.

Although largly ignored by local news, the study by Dr. Shields and his research partner has been cited in the NY Times, Washington Post, etc. He was even a guest on the Colbert Report. It is an ongoing study of publicly reported federal investigations and indictments involving local elected official. His numbers -- now updated through the end of Gonzales' term -- show a hugely disproportionately number of Democrats and an equally disproportionately low number of Republicans, one that could occur by chance only 1/10,000. Of course, even with the refusal of the Justice Department to release the rest of its documents, the firing of the US Attorneys demonstrates that the figures are not "by chance".

One of those sacked for not being partisan enough (!) was our own Todd Graves. But, local issues aside, future historians will likely rely on Dr. Shields' study as an important source for understanding the most politically corrupted Justice Department in our nation's history.

The "report" Shields and his half wit colleague produced was the sloppiest and most politically transparent thing I've ever seen. In fact, they named as "under investigation" officials who were neither under investigation nor connected in any way to DOJ inquiries. After they were threatened with a defamation lawsuit earlier this year, they caved, admittting that they'd included incorrect and defamatory information. And - let's see - where do I know that last name? And in what motion was it I saw this crap cited as authority for dismissal? Shameless...

"Ex-Governor Siegelman Put In Prison So Bob Riley Can Be Groomed As A GOP Vice Presidential Candidate".

Bush’s justice appointees used the justice system to kidnap Don Siegelman. An order was sent to the prison 600 miles away that he is to be kept under strict watch 24 by 7 not allowing communicating with no one except for limited communications with his wife, children and attorneys.

(a) When Siegelman was Secretary of State and Attorney General, he referred several irregularities of cash flow to state and federal law enforcement which included sham organizations, Contra drug trafficking, tax evasion and money laundering. The results of the investigations found that much were linked to high ranking politicians in Alabama, Florida, Arkansas and sometimes Georgia, and Mississippi. Siegelman is a very smart attorney. He holds two law degrees. He knows more about Alabama's politics than anyone, being the only person in history to have served the top four government offices in Alabama and he has first hand experience of how a White house backed conspiracy works. This is a partial list of the skeletons that they don't want big media to know about:

(a) Voting fraud- Voting machine expert Dan Gans of Riley's staff is very knowledgeable of "Diebold Optical Scan Voting Machines" and of the "ES&S Central Voting Tabular" used in Alabama elections. He is believed to have altered the election totals on election night in the 2002 gubernatorial election.

(b) Millions of dollars of dirty campaign money was used to defeat Siegelman's Education Lottery and to defeat his gubernatorial campaigns. The money came from big business clients of lobbyist Jack Abramoff, Michael Scanlon, Toby Roth, Rob Riley and William Canary. Several different National GOP associations along with some sham organizations ran by Robin Vanderwall, Preston Gates, Ralph Reed, Glover Norquist and William Canary laundered the money so that it wouldn't be obvious who the donors were.

(c ) The newspaper giant Newhouse/Advance Publications has an arrangement with the GOP and the U.S. attorneys in Alabama to print articles hand fed to them by Alabama GOP operatives and the Bush appointed U.S. attorneys in Alabama to create a corrupt public image of Siegelman, and other top Democratic politicians.

Two years passed, I still remembered the scene of fighting against wolves in Tir Chonaill with friends, sharing fruit which was got by our mabinogi gold around a fire, fishing in a clean pond. Players will have five seconds freezed to make their own preparation, when the fight beings, win or lose, it depends on your own cheap mabinogi. Here is some mabinogi money I took months ago; I was the guy wielding a thick sword. And I know it is rude enough to beat a woman. But, we can use some mabinogi online gold to edit some dates in the setup menu to change the clothes we wear. As a kind of fantastic online game, I think Mabinogi is more similar to comic and need to buy mabinogi gold.

The devaluation of the fiesta Gold grows faster than we think of it. I hope it is reflects to the management department about the question of the fiesta money. It is caused by the continuous influx of fiesta online gold market currencies. On the other hand, buy fiesta Gold is one of these questions. The fiesta online money is one of the causes.
