The Political Prosecutions of Karl Rove

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Some years back, I worked pretty regularly with a woman named Geraldine who did a TV show in ABQ (I was her back-end production dept).  She came unglued over her daughter's divorce, and what she claimed was (and which seemed to me to be) 'kidnapping' of her granddaughter and shipment of same off to Texas (both were NM residents as parents together, but daddy left for Texas).

Now, given that NM is the state that actually brought this firestorm onto the Bush administration (by their firing of David Iglesias), it's unlikely that it's *rampant* in NM, but it might be the case (especially when making cross-state deals with Texans).

In any event, this was sent special delivery from Rob at OpEd News, and he titled it: "OpEdNews; The Most Important Article I've Written Since Starting"

I agree.  Here's the video referenced in it:

American Justice is At Risk. What Are You Doing About it?

by Rob Kall     Page 1 of 1 page(s)

While the health reform debate is roaring, as it should be, with the yellow back dems, including Obama, in full spineless coward mode, except for a handful, there's another important situation that must be covered-- the failure of Obama and AG Holder to remove the Bush appointed toxic prosecuting attorneys-- the ones who have criminally engaged in prosecutorial misconduct. will be on a mission to set this wrong right-- and we hope you will help. If you are not already totally incensed by their failure to act, please watch, online, this 50 minute video by John McTiernan, director of Die Hard 1 and 3, Hunt for Red October and Predator. I NEVER recommend videos, but this one is sooo important. You will not regret watching it. 

The Political Prosecutions of Karl Rove

After you watch it, you will realize how big a deal it is that Obama and Holder have failed to act decisively. When Thomas Jefferson faced similar prospects he fired the attorneys, freed the wrongly prosecuted and imprisoned and began impeachment hearings. That is what must happen here, followed by prosecution and imprisonment of the attorneys, some who are now judges. JUDGES! This must not stand. As John McTiernan says, Americans must not reach a point where they fear the judicial system and that has happened to over 700 victims of judicial and prosecutorial misconduct. 

Obama has said he invites being pushed. Well, we must work together to do this. He must look at the precedent set by Thomas Jefferson and rise to it, doing not less, but more, because to bring justice to those who died or whose lives and whose families' lives were destroyed by the monsters still in their jobs as prosecutors and judges, Obama, through Holder, must insist on investigations and prosecutions. 

Take one whistleblower, Dana Jill Simpson, whose house was burned down and who has been repeatedly threatened. When Karl Rove lied about his role in the Siegelman case, she wrote this article; My Response to the article "Closing in on Rove". There are over 700 victims, like her, who deserve justice.

Ironically, if these shameful bush initiated, GOP backed practices were brought to the public's attention, the right wingers who are now afflicting the Obama Health Reform efforts like swarms of gnats would be in retreat, doing all they could to clean up their image and distance themselves from these horrendous perpetrations. 

Meanwhile, Governor Don Siegelman still awaits sentencing and incarceration. How can Holder allow this to stand when he has released Alaska's senator Stevens who was clearly a red herring meant to distract from the otherwise massively partisan witch hunt Rove directed in his corruption of the DOJ?

The fact that the attorneys who perptretated such injustices are still at their jobs, still threatening people is insane. The Obama administration must be faced with a huge uproar, a massive demand from all corners of the media, from the blogosphere, that he fire the remaining attorneys immediately. 

Some argue that the Republicans, like Jeff Sessions, are holding back appointments of replacements. That is a pathetic argument. You don't leave a fox guarding the henhouse just because you haven't found a solid guard dog yet. You get rid of the fox. 

That still leaves Bush appointed judges who engaged in prosecutorial misconduct. They must be investigated, impeached or directly prosecuted. And they should be imprisoned.

There is plenty of evidence that there is a strong connection between the Federalist Society and these tainted attorneys and judges. Perhaps that's where the search should begin... starting with Holder. And if Holder doesn't start cleaning this Katrina-level catastrophy of justice very soon, he should be cast out. America deserves better.

You can play a role. Write to your local daily paper. Contact the DOJ. Conctact John Conyers, head of the House Judiciary Committee, contact Patrick Leahy, head of the Senate Judiciary committee. Write to Obama. Tell your local democratic leaders. Blog about it. Tell the mainstream media they should be covering this daily, that they should be counting down every day that Holder and Obama have failed to removed these rogue attorneys. Do it today.
