Liar Watch - March 17, 2004

This from DailyKOS:

Last week, the Filthy Lying Weasels lied about Kerry "Gutting" the CIA budget in 1995. Today on Lou Dobbs, Communication Weasel Dan Bartlett Lied that Kerry voted SIX times against the Department of Homeland Security. Well of course it's a pack of Lies that Goebbels would be proud of.

The Irony of course was that Bush opposed and resisted Lieberman's efforts to establish the Dept of Homeland Security for months. Not that substituting Cnn Host "John King" would dare ask Weasel Bartlett.

In 2002, there were 19 Senate votes on the Department of Homeland Security (officially known as House Resolution 5005 - Homeland Security Act of 2002).

4 Votes were on Killing a Filibuster to a Phil Gramm Amdt.
3 Votes were on Killing a Filibuster to a Lieberman Amdt., and
1 vote to shelve his Amdt.
2 additional - separate- Lieberman amendments.
2 separate Thompson amendments.
3 amendments, one each, by Byrd, Feingold, and Hollings.
2 procedural votes.
1 Filibuster vote on the Final Bill itself, and
1 Vote on the Final Bill.
For a total of 19.
Kerry voted 15 Yeas, 3 Nays, and he didn't vote on one Lieberman Amendment.

The Nays were (1) against Shelving Feingold's Amdt To Block Senate Pay raises; (2) against Shelving one of Lieberman's Amdt on provided a substitute bill; and (3) to outright defeat a Byrd Amdt on reorganization.

So were does Barlett get 6 votes against Homeland Security (Remember, the Bill "Bush" Opposed for Months), probably from Kerry's votes to support Lieberman's efforts to amend or substitute the House Bill for Lieberman's own Bill (Remember, it was Lieberman who proposed the Senate Bill in the first place. The Bill "Bush" opposed for months).

Hey guys, wouldn't it be neat if we had a "Liberal Media" to point out when the Bushies are baldface lying? I woke up today to Wolfowitz on the radio, still claiming "evidence" of Saddam/Al Quaeda collusion based on alleged "meetings" in Sudan in 1995. Even he doesn't claim to know what was going on at those meetings. Reality never intrudes on this guy's delusions. This is the same level of "evidence" offered by the JFK assassination freaks I used to hang with and UFO cultists the world over. As Agent Mulder would say, I Want To Believe.

I attended a meeting once with Alderman Ed Burke. He endorsed Gery Chico in the primary for Senate. I know someone on Chico's campaign staff. We have been seen at the same table in the same restaurant on more than one occasion. I was observed at a public fundraiser shaking Chico's hand!Based on these tidbits, Wolfowitz would no doubt conclude that I am in collusion with the Chico campaign, probably an "operative." Actually I didn't even vote for the guy.

Somebody should inform Wolfowitz that there were High Level Meetings between Saddam Hussein and Donald Rumsfeld in the 1980s, and that known Rumsfeld associates funneled money to Osama bin Laden to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan during the same period. Coincidence? or Conspiracy!

(Rumsfeld also met with my grandmother quite a few times in the 1970s. Tony's mom knows Jerry Bremer. Maybe we're all in it together! The Office of Special Plans is gathering evidence against Kevin Bacon as we speak . . .)
