Who Cares About the Senate? Tom Hartman's Boat In Danger

I woke up grouchy this morning, which means this blog's going to be the Portland Venter for a while.

Note to Tom Hartman, the local Air America guy: Somewhere between 10 minutes of 7 a.m., through the top of the hour, until 6 minutes after, when you went into an interview about Measure 37, you might have someone at the station give a detailed update on Senator Johnson of South Dakota. Yes, Air America mentioned "stories we are following" and the word "critical", but that's it.

To be fair, you did discuss a topic that could affect you personally, but I think the control of the United States Senate is bigger news than how you need to get an extra rope to tie your boat down, because it's going to be windy tonight.

Let's look at this from a competitive point of view with the Internet. After Air America failed to cover a story that could be as important as the elections themselves - because it could undo the Senate half - I was forced to get out of bed and head down to the office and find out what was happening on the Internet. This is the top of the hour when big stories are normally followed, so clue in, and if your boat blows away tonight, get another one. I'm going back to sleep. Sorry if I'm grouchy, but putting Dick Cheney back as the tie-breaking vote in the Senate is too grim to contemplate.

Needed to be said, Bill. I like Thom Hartmann and agree with his politics, but I just can't stand to listen to the guy for more than five minutes. He has a earnest humorlessness that makes tuning in to him like being stuck in church.

With Carl Rove still in 'office', I worry about all Democratic senators from states with Republican governors.

At 3:02 PM, Blogger Bill McDonald said...

I have gotten more rest, and would like to apologize to Thom for this outburst. I was clearly upset that the Senate could fall back under the control of Cheney and friends.
I don't listen to Air America in the morning but I figured who better to get on this story? By the way, it's a great story on a palace-intrigue level. Meetings in the night and surgery, etc...
I was positive Air America would be on this - they weren't. I did become irritated waiting to hear and when the news at the top of the hour came and went, I was steamed. This was partly because I had to get out of bed.
Oh well. This remains grim with the Senate on the line. I do acknowledge without the services of Air America, the election might not have gone so well in the first place.

Ya know, I'd like to laugh off Laurelhurstdad's observation. But with plane crashes claiming Dem Sen. Paul Wellstone (2002) and Dem Gov. Mel Carnahan on the eve of a Senate election he was favored to win (2000), I'm more alarmed than amused.

At 4:00 PM, Blogger Torrid said...

I think there may be 2 reasons:

1) Very little information was available, really. He had bleeding in the brain, they operated late into the night, he came out, and is in critical condition. We've learned some things since then (news is good, thank you!), but at 6AM there was still a lot of uncertainty about things I think. That may have led to their reticence.

2) Unless he died, there was no issue about Senate control on the table, so why bring up something as ghoulish as political calculations? You don't lose your seat by being ill; they kept Strom in a hospital and wheeled his semi-conscious frame onto the floor for votes, for months at a time. Arlen Specter is another one who has had extended health issues, and I believe a GOP Senator found out he has leukemia--so they'd better step off before they start talking about "replacements." You can't replace anyone who a) isn't dead, and b) isn't actually a Senator yet to begin with!

There were at least four Dem Senate candidates in the past 25 years who were in close races with religious right-backed candidates who died in mysterious small plane crashes. Two in Missouri.

At 4:42 PM, Blogger Bill McDonald said...

I believe Wellstone's plane was dropped from the sky in a criminal hit. I've heard there are weapons that can make an engine shut down.
As for the information at 7a.m., many people proably went to bed hearing the Senator's spokesman say it was not a stroke. By the next morning there had been surgery and an explanation of what kind of medical problem it was. That merited some sort of mention, rather than a long discussion of the wind storm that's still not here a 4:41 this afternoon.

At 4:51 PM, Blogger Bill McDonald said...

One other thing: Last night I spent some time searching the number of Republican governors with Democratic senators, in case this was a criminal act. I couldn't find the number quickly and I told myself, "That information will be in the media tomorrow." I still want to hear that, although this is looking more like a medical problem, as opposed to a crime.
If there is a bright note, it's that any Democrat senators who die from here out will be immediately viewed as suspicious incidents.
It's like the scene in the Godfather: "If Michael should happen to die in a car crash or be hit by a meteor, then I will blame some of the people in this room."

At 6:46 PM, Blogger LaurelhurstDad said...

There must be a nerd or two out there that will look at

(Governors by party)


(Senators by state/party)

I'd do it, but I have to unpack from several weeks of travel to D.C. and NYC (where rumors there make our rumors look like kids wondering who has kooties).

At 7:10 PM, Blogger Bill McDonald said...

It's a transitional time, so you have to cross check with who's going on.

The thing that gave me the chills is that this was the perfect time to make a move on a senator if you had evil intent. Don't wait till the session starts - do it now while everyone's thinking about the holidays.

That's why I won't dismiss the notion that this is a hit - something drug-induced. I don't care what the doctors say.

LOLLOLOLLOLOL!!!! Bill and company - laurelhurstdad, roger, et al - thank you SO MUCH for restoring my faither that this blog will continue to be a fortress of liberal conspiracy theories even in the wake of a House and Senate victory.

Lucky for us conservatives that Rove's super-secret 'Stroke-Ray' as operational as his 'Foot-In-Mouth-Ray' used repeatedly against Kerry in the '04 election had outlived its usefulness.

I can only hope and pray that Karl has the CIA working overtime perfecting his 'Hillary-Is-A-Shrill-Bitch-Ray' in time for 20008.

Glad to oblige.
Hey, did you see the latest on Flight 800? The BS government theory of the soaring headless 747 is following apart fast.
Relax, it's a Clinton era thing so it's okay.

At 8:20 AM, Anonymous butch said...

Fill me in on the Flight 800 thing. I know that some suspect it was brought down by a stinger rather than a random exploding tank. But why the cover-up? To prevent domestic panic? Why hasn't any terrorist group taken credit for it (or have they)? If not terrorists, what was the motive of whomever did it?

At 10:04 AM, Blogger Bill McDonald said...

The suggested motive for the cover-up was that it was an election year and Bill Clinton felt an incident could hurt him.
Was it terrorism? Many believe it was an accidental hit from one of our own ships. I'm sure there were many terrorist groups who claimed they did it - that normally happens. For example I remember a terrorist group in Yugoslavia initially claimed they had done the first bombing of the WTC back in the early 90s.
It is an interesting way to diffuse the power of terrorism, isn't it?
Just deny it was a hit and see if that flies. The witnesses who saw streaks approaching the plane in this case are very credible, and the exploding fuel tank theory has major problems, starting with the combustion properties of jet fuel.
The theory that the plane continued flying upwards after losing it's cockpit area is also ridiculed by many. It's one of those things they had to come up with to make the theory work.
I'll look for a link for you, but Butch, we may have a breakthrough here: A Clinton era example of me distrusting the government's official story. If this doesn't work we move on to Waco.

At 10:19 AM, Anonymous butch said...

A cover up of the cause is one thing (as in the Flight 800 case), but accusing the Government of being complicit with an act is on a whole nother level.

Nobody I've read thinks TWA 800 was shot down by the US deliberately.

At 11:05 PM, Anonymous Tenskwatawa said...

Well, TWA 800 was shot down by the US deliberately.

Perhaps there are things you are not allowed to read in corporate massmind media ?

July 11, 2006 -- The tenth anniversary of the TWA 800 crash off of Long Island, July 17, 2006, is approaching and the mainstream media, as expected, will be spinning the "official" conclusion that the Boeing 747 crashed as the result of center fuel tank spontaneous combustion. WMR has learned from FBI sources that TWA 800 was shot down on July 17, 1996, by a Stinger missile fired from a leased speedboat by individuals associated with white supremacists and neo-Nazis. The late ABC News correspondent and President Kennedy Press Secretary Pierre Salinger reported that TWA 800 was brought down by a missile fired from a Navy ship. Salinger had the story only partially incorrect. TWA 800 was brought down by a Stinger missile stolen in 1993 in a major weapons heist by right-wing militia members from Navy ships anchored off the coast of the U.S. Coastal Systems Base in Panama City, Florida, according to Navy and FBI investigators who investigated the theft.

According to FBI and Florida law enforcement officials, after the United Klans of America was disbanded after a successful lawsuit brought in 1987 by the Southern Poverty Law Center, much of the Klan and Aryan Brotherhood began doing business under a new name: the Northwest Florida Horsemen's Association, operating mainly out of Washington County in the Florida Panhandle. The new incarnation of the Klan in Washington County, Florida, attracted a number of ex-military members after Bill Clinton became President. These included Timothy McVeigh and his Army boot camp friend Terry Nichols. In small towns like Chipley in the Florida Panhandle, the future Oklahoma City bombers would cross paths with those who would plan the Stinger attack on TWA 800.

But the newly-established Klan and Aryan Brotherhood also attracted the attention of the FBI, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and the Washington County Sheriff, particularly after the mail bombing campaign directed at U.S. Federal judges in the South and the theft by Klan members of weapons from Florida National Guard armories. In 1993, 214 Stinger missiles, along with a number of AR-15 assault rifles, were stolen from Navy supply ships stationed off the coast of Panama City's Naval Base. The ships, stationed off Panama City since the mid-1980s, maintained full stocks of arms and ammunition in the event they ...

Read the rest and freak out. I can hear the challenge-by-denial, stay-in-the-bubble brains already. One question usually arrests them, though: Which fact in Wayne Madsen Report (dot) COM can you prove false?

The same source added updated information during November, but it got hacked out by the 'intelligence community' censors in a chunk of Madsen archives.

At 8:17 AM, Anonymous Tenskwatawa said...

Bill, one more quick post move by you and this thread bottoms out and butch, having hit, breathes relief and runs away, hiding till another day. Let alone Thom Hartmann, (for a second).

Vapid butsh leaves time stamps on his dumbdown distractions showing he is assigned to this blog, and camped on his keyboard, trying to clog the vital Veins of Thought pulsing here. (The same result in broadcasting is the purpose of filibuster talkers -- like Hartmann -- and is called 'stealing the media oxygen,' suffocating news information by intentional neglect.)

Now, in the previous comment, exact information states who got the stinger that hit TWA800, where and when it was stolen, and who knew. Facts. So where's butsh? Laughing out loud, the Loser's Off Line. Ha ha ha ha haaaaa. Takes his Lies of Loser and shuts up, hides his hateful harassments, and lets true proven facts calling him liar slink down the blog front page and fall out the bottom. Losers Of Life call 'conspiracy' because, like loser butsh putz, he can't spell comprehension -- capice? -- never mind collect it. (The broadcasting variation is: hit the dump switch, hang up quick, go to break and never after mention the said facts got out.)

So bring it, butsh, let truth butcher your Lying Out Loud. It is justice to recycle the thread post to the top, Bill, needing no new creative writing effort on your part. Let it stand as the silver cross warding off the Vein-of-Thought cutter and blogblood sucking vampire, since butsh can't later cut into another thread by skipping this one in his face, except so proving he is running afraid from factual daylight.

Look, Bill, consider this: On topic, your instincts are right. Trust that. The news of bleeding was supposed to be leading, and fully sensational since shivving one senator might neutralize the election of a progressive dominion. And seeing it is another dot making and fleshing the pattern: Imperialists murder for profit in office. Comprehension silences phony 'conspiracy' shouters like the anti-truth butsh traitors.

Kill cretins. If he takes that as a threat, he admits the shot fits and he does fear it.

Recall that in the Revolutionary War there were residents whose private privileges and riches came by leech-sucking King George III, not by personal character features. Residents who aided the enemy -- British imperialism, and who hated common decency, civil rights all created equal, fairness, justice and democracy being born, overthrowing them.

They painted their chimneys white, showing a Tory base. (Today it is Bushflag decals on SUVs -- notice how they have gone into hiding as more evidence shows up that they support a sick sadistic torture-murderer. They don't change their ad space around in order to display their opposition to the war criminal murderer, they only take down their shame and hide wanting it all to blow over. They don't oppose murder in behalf of betrayal and their pieces-of-silver profit by it, and they don't plan to give back their traitor's toys and murder money, rather 'taking it with them' to hell.)

After democracy won and America stood liberated and free, many houses with white chimneys deserved defacing retribution by patriots. The sociopathic wordings of the butshes all aping LIARS Larson and dittoing druggy Rash Lamebrain, are today's traitors' white chimneys of nazi-inflamed 'master racists' billowing supremacist smoke. When they lose we put a lid on their tripe pipes, and their own fumes blow back into their posh parlors. They go down their guilt-ready escape hatch and hide underground in the basement, but they don't change their mind -- and they can't. Thinking they are above all humankind toiling grounded on sweet earth's flat soil, thinking they touch God and evince divine egomania, is mental illness. Their brain don't reason; save your breath speaking to inspire them, save your food for thought to feed them. Inhuman imperialists' dogs don't hunt, so turn them out to die unsheltered in our humane society.

Now here are some tidbits on topic. Media makers mean to enslave the massmind. You want them 'to get on it,' "give a detailed update," on "a story that could be as importand as the elections." You want to "find out what was happening," by "the stories we are following." However, they "failed to cover" it, yet you keep coming back for more nothing, and no news, and dissing you dysinformation. They got your brain chained and intrained now, don't they. When investigative dogs are not barking to you that's your Slave Alert. Remember the times there was news you might use to frame your own views but they said, 'we don't want to panic the public.' Panic us from what? The facts of life and the Truth? More like panic us from revealing the insider privilege to profit in what they don't tell you.

What they could tell you is think for yourself, use your wise brain cuz you have one, inborn; and they could supply the What Where When Who Why and How for you to work with. Remember when newspapers used to write Why's information? Since broadcasting started that's gone, and new-come is Would Will and Make-a-Wish. Whenever the story you hear says Would Will, or Wouldn't Won't, you've just been told don't think don't reflect but expect. They could say at seven, "here is the news," but they don't, they say, "we already know what is news and we WILL have that for you at eleven." And you expect so, but meanwhile: Worry and fear what they know.

Yet you don't get no news at eleven. By then you get 'olds.' Senseless seconds. How can you have any sense of the world when its sight and its sound and its touch reach your brain four hours later? The most powerful weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed. - Steven Biko

You hope against hope Air America does better. They don't. One building, (i.e., media property), houses KEX/KPOJ put together, Limbaugh at one end, Franken the other. Flip a coin. Spin around either way. Hear the ads sing for McDonald's, in fact, whose beef comes with mad cow disease it takes twenty years to get sick of. And die. Meanwhile, get a job, go flip burgers for war bonds. What a Kroc of profit that is! Or they advertise cars that are killing the fields, and streams, and air and earth that our children are going to live on. And die. Meanwhile, you work at your job.

Your job is defined by the P.R.-man's mind. Who also made broadcasting airing commercials. Massmind is the onset of fascism. The longer it's common, the stronger it's chained. Common sense becomes no sense at all. Read about Edward Bernays and his politics of "self interest" over yours.

Read: Broadcasting programs the 'synchronous mind' (put that in your google and search it). It is what folks call 'the State.' Government runs the State. Here, we, the people is the Government, which is hard work but we outsourced it. Broadcasting content containing advertising for commerce and commercials, fuses in massmind Business (or Corporatism) and the State. Those two -- your job and your president, being joined, is Mussolini's definition of fascism.

Know: Commercial broadcasting gave fascism its start and nourishes it; stop the commercials and you stop the fascism. Then people are free to -- KBOO -- chip in together and do it themselves, which is work. Otherwise you die, a slave, no heirs.

Government by propaganda -- As dictator of Italy, Mussolini's foremost priority was the subjugation of the minds of the Italian people and using propaganda to do so; whether at home or abroad, and here his training as a journalist was invaluable. Press, radio, education, films — all were carefully supervised to manufacture the illusion that fascism was the doctrine of the 20th century, replacing liberalism and democracy.

Thom Hartmann. Thom Hartmann. Think twice of him: Why he came here. What he does. Why the hell did he come here out of the blue, or rather, into the blue, when he did? Portland was quite democratic before him, showing best numbers and most market of all of the blue blocs rating America's Air. What, he's come to progress the progressives? He can loVErmont but now adOREgon? He can do the radio programming here that he has, right where he was. Besides that, he goes on complaining about the pains and upheaval and losses and cost, like there's no desire, to get packed and on track and get his butt out here. Plus he's got a bullet hole in the side of his car. If that doesn't show street cred in this crowd, nothing does. Yeah, nothing does. I think he arrived at the very same time that the false-front spook business, somewhere downtown, leasing airplanes renditioned to torture death dungeons, got outed.

And what does he say in his new land of liberty, leading the most rabble-rousers? 'We can't say right now there's no WMDs.' 'Don't say nine-eleven's a hoax.' 'Let's entertain neo-con stooges on-air and embarrass them.' And his latest book 'proves' lone-gunman Oswald was the only nut loose down in Dallas. He carefully notes and collects all the plans of the Dem's who come on strategizing. But he never leads any, beyond the worn waste: 'Write to Congress.' "Tag, you're it." One day, 'it' was me, calling his guest, Thomas H. Kean, 911 Commissioners chairman, on hold with a question that they screened in preview, still holding when Kean left the building. "Why did the Commission never report that a third skyscraper imploded that day, and How?" Thom takes my call when the news comes on-air and says, "really? how odd? we WILL have him back on and ask, some other time, later, good-bye."

Most people are aware that cops cause crimes when they do so-called 'sting' operations, (operating as outlaws trying to meet other outlaws), with our tax money. Many people recognize FBI- and CIA-types -- government Thought Police agents, do the same thing pretending to believe like some group believes, in order to meet members of the group, infiltrate any organizing activities, and at least keep tabs but often directing -- toward more foolish acts, away from smart acts, or parallel with fascist subversion of the public "domestic tranquility," as in mercenary militias, vigilante groups, vice syndicates, protest suppressors and robocop dragnets, secret allegiance societies and God goons ... and modern massmedia -- all examples whose work is disturbing the peace and demeaning fair Justice, (CIA director Dulles bragged in his 1965 book, "The Craft of Intelligence," that he controlled "over 500 publishers, editors and reporters" to wrute or erase 'news information' as Dulles dictated for public threat. Gee, "over 500" ... "1965" ... do you suppose the list might reach to anyone in the 25th largest metropolitan market: Portland?). With our tax money. And sometimes, when there is no crime, government 'make-work' agents invent some, do it themselves or hire it done. With our tax money. As in McCarthy's red-baiting black-listing, JFK's murder, MLK, Jr.'s murder, RFK's murder, Legionnaire's disease microbiology scurge, crack cocaine advanced chemistry scurge, methamphetamine advanced chemistry scurge, TWA 800 attack, Enron/PGE electricity cheating, Nine-Eleven Op (n.e.o.-con, they even monogrammed it), anthrax microbiology scurge, or false classified 'terrorist chatter.' And, yes, Wellstone's murder. With our tax money.

A local example of fear instigation is the unsolved 1996 Oakridge Ranger Station arson. An agent provocateur led anti-clear-cutting activists (they said) into a first vandalism a few weeks before, burning a logging-site pickup and putting sugar in the fueltanks of heavy equipment, signing their crime "E.L.F." and issuing a press communique taking blame. Then came the torched Ranger Station, destroying archives of forestry and timber sale records, (both legal and sham), the only attack that never got claimed and more costly destructive ($10 million) than the sum of dozens which followed and which all were confessed to the press. In inventing the start of eco-attacks, the singular oddity of no claimants for Oakridge and it the only unsolved, partly "prompted speculation that the blaze could have been the work either of "eco-terrorists’ or [Reichstag fire-like] terrorists seeking to pin the blame on environmentalists." Here in the wilds of Oregon, don't think your activities in freedom and peace are beyond federal fascists taking note of the threat of free thinkers' disdain, or sending a butsh or a Hartmann, or a JTTF liaisson.

For years crossing paths, I have 'profiled' CIA-type messengers into an occupational checklist: (1.) trained in advertising and PR, in brief, (2.) they write well, often books smart and broadening, because (3.) they travelled the world usually (4.) with no visible means of support, they don't have 'a job' and you presume they have book royalties. Hartmann goes 4-for-4. The CIA-type message is the indefinite answer, either no information, ambiguous information, or plural answers, if not outright myth -- they are not conversing with you, they are eavesdropping; you say what you know and they'll decide what to do with you later. Until we hear the voices of individuality, massmind is going to be waiting in the media to find out what's happening, right up to the minute the crypt closes.

Bill, for informative broadcast news go to KBOO 90.7 FM, (worldwide at, 7 am and 5 pm, Pacific Time. Hear no commercials, buy nothing, pay for the facility instead. Everyone: The only good broadcasting is your broadcasting. PBS and NPR propagandize thought as much as any advertiser-controlled broadcasting -- ban public broadcasting's corporate contributions so all they have is public money from taxes and pledge-drive donations, and then you can trust them, because you can call them and they take your input. The news that is needed is you making it. When that happens Leno better move over.

But I digress. When I started typing.

The internet is the media of individualities. Informative narrowcast news depends on what the definition of 'is news' is for each of us. And that becomes our water in the tributary-stream media -- we drink it, we sweat it, we cry it, we pee it. Imagine the flow going uphill -- out of the sea of experience, knowledge, and information; through the locks, up the river; into the forks, up the streams, branching off into tributaries; until it's our own condensation, rising up from us in amorphous clouds and over the earth we rain. Fascism flows downhill, democracy flows uphill. The high ground wins.

I set out to float these facts 'round the world, and it kind of got carried away. This has to be short but there's much more to bring up.

News to you maybe to stay with the grouchy and show we make our own news and information. And broadcasting don't. Lose your subscriptions. Be more in life than an audience ratings point. In the truth galaxy, you're a star.

This about Wellstone:
Was Paul Wellstone Murdered? -- History Suggests It; Crash Inconsistencies Suggest It; Many, Including Some Members of Congress, Believe It

In that there's a link to a grave history.

There's also a link a site that condensed it: Progressive Review published an Oct. 25 story titled "Politicians Killed In Plane Crashes."

That was 2002. Today's material uses YouTube power, the mainstream 'massmind' media killer, offering, like, totally, news informiness. Or at least better entertainment, and with that hint let's take a break, an intermission, from slogging through the fetid backwaters and bush branches of Republican war crime.

Then there is a follow-up report on Wellstone:
When Senator Paul Wellstone’s plane crashed near Eveleth, Minnesota on Friday, October 25, 2002, killing him, his wife, his daughter, three aides, the pilot, and the co-pilot, a casual observer might have forecast a simple investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). The mass media widely reported bad weather in the area—freezing rain, snow, icing, and fog, with poor visibility—and implied that the weather had caused the crash.
More than a year later, however, the NTSB’s 63-page Final Report1 answered few questions, and left a huge void in the public record for those wishing to understand the death of the outspoken Senator. Despite having released over 2,300 pages of Factual Reports and supporting documents2 to the public during the course of its investigations, the NTSB’s Final Report does not address the most fundamental questions surrounding the crash. Moreover, even the very presence of the FBI during the investigation of the crash site was almost completely eliminated from the documents that were released—let alone the results of the FBI’s investigations—despite an abundance of evidence that its agents were on site before members of the NTSB, and continued to play a major role at the crash site in the days that followed. ...

And one final step connects so many dots that we see the Bush-Republican-fascism constellation, (some say 'conspiracy,' some say 'military industrial complex,' and I say it's mental illness, sadistic and sociopathic), a chimney-white WASP smearing soot-black the length of the 20th century sky. The negative of the Milky Way.

Step here ...
"What I saw was a picture of him giving Clyde Tolson a blowjob," said Novel. "There was more than one shot, but the startling one was a close shot of Hoover's head. He was totally recognizable. You could not see the face of the man he was with, but Angleton said it was Tolson. ..."

... which links here ...
Prescott Bush (father of George) made his fortune by financing the war effort of Adolph Hitler together with his banking partners and fellow "bonesmen" Averell and Roland Harriman. Prescott was stripped of his holdings in the Union Banking Corporation in 1942 under the "Trading with the Enemy Act".

George Herbert Walker Bush is one of the very few Americans who does not recall where he was when JFK was killed. Yet, the following document, recently declassified, places him very close to Dallas within 2 hours of JFK's assassination:

... which goes to page 2 ...
George H.W. Bush is provably lying about his CIA career. He claims that his CIA directorship in 1976 was his first job for the CIA.

... and then to page 3 ...
It's a memorandum of FBI director J Edgar Hoover to the State department, dated 29 November 1963. It describes a meeting, one day after JFK's murder, between FBI and CIA officials talking about the reaction of the Cuban exile community to the Kennedy Assassination. The last paragraph states that the "the substance of the foregoing information was orally furnished to us and George Bush of the Central Intelligence agency". Here we have the name of George Bush mentioned as a CIA official in direct connection to the Kennedy assassination. When asked by journalists, he initially stated "It's not me, must be another Bush!" This was checked and found to be NOT true. When asked again, a spokesperson for Bush declined to comment any further. The obvious question is: Why does Bush need to lie about it?

... for the moneyline:
Hale Boggs sat on the Warren Commission, which concluded that President Kennedy was slain by a lone assassin. Later, in 1971 and '72, Boggs said that the Warren Report was false and that J. Edgar Hoover's FBI not only helped cover up the JFK murder but blackmailed Congress with massive wire-tapping and spying. He named Warren Commission staff member Arlen Specter as a major cover-up artist. Congressman Boggs' plane disappeared on a flight to Alaska in 1972. The press, the military, and the CIA publicly proclaimed the plane could not be located. Investigators later said that was a lie, that the plane had been found. On the plane were Nick Begich, a very popular Democratic Congressman, and Don Jonz, an aide to Mr. Boggs. All were killed.

+ In 1976, George H.W. Bush was appointed CIA director by president and former Warren Commission member Gerald Ford at the exact time that newly erected investigative committees were probing the possible role of the CIA into the assassination plots to kill Fidel Castro, Martin Luther King and John F. Kennedy. Bush appoints his old friend ...
