THE INSIDE SCOOP on George W. Bush’s Former Ambassador to Italy, Melvin Sembler, who ran a teen drug rehab center where thousands of American teens were physically and mentally abused in horrific, degrading ways.
Guest: Reporter John Gorenfeld
In New Jersey, California, and even the normally Republican Virginia, voters decisively rejected negative politics, Republicans, and the Bush Administration.
Is this a harbinger of 2006?
Voters in California, Virginia, and New Jersey will vote today.
DON’T FORGET TO VOTE!
These elections have national implications.
If California voters approve Proposition 77, the Republicans will likely seal control of the House of Representatives for a generation, preventing Congress from ever investigating the persuasive allegations of TREASON by Vice President Dick Cheney against the USA. Nor will the lies the Bush Administration told the Congress and the American People in order to trick us into going to war in Iraq ever be investigated.
With Bush’s approval rating scraping the barrel from 35 to 39%, these State Elections may be the precursor to the more important Election Day in 2006, when Democrats could take back a House of Congress, which would finally give them the power to investigate and challenge this corrupt, incompetent, treasonous Administration.
Guests: Ginny Peters, Chair of Fairfax Democratic Committee, and George Burke, Chair of the 11th Congressional District
BEFORE Election Day, Mark gives the INSIDE SCOOP on this year’s dirty election tricks in the State of Virginia!
Even after the State Elections Board ruled such things illegal, the Republicans continue to put out mailers and “robot” telephone calls claiming to be from the Democratic and Independent candidates for Governor.
In a Virginia House race, Repubs are spreading rumors through robot phone calls that the Democrat candidate died.
THESE ARE DIRTY TRICKS STRAIGHT OUT OF KARL ROVE’S PLAYBOOK!
THEY ARE ILLEGAL, IMMORAL, AND WRONG.
Did Al Quaeda WANT us to Invade Iraq?
Did Bush Play Right Into Bin Laden’s Hands and then Cover it Up?
Will Bush pardon Scooter Libby to cover up White House treason?
Will Rove, with his classified clearance, continue to commit treason?
Should those found guilty of treason be executed? Even if it includes the Vice President?
Will the Democrats, having forced the Senate into closed session in order to compel recalcitrant Republicans to investigate how the Administration manipulated intelligence in order to get us into war in Iraq, use their new found cojones to filibuster Supreme Court Nominee Samuel Alito?
And if Republicans “go nuclear,” will the American Public support the Democrats standing firm by the rule of law? Or will they see it as partisan bickering?
Listeners Sean and Jeff debate the ultimate question (on the Nov. 2 blog): should the Democrats be civil or make their demands heard, even if it means shutting the Congress down?
