Guest blogged by Gandhi.

INTRODUCTION {by Winter Patriot}: I am pleased to introduce one of my favorite bloggers, the Australian known as "Gandhi". His blog, Bush Out (by Gandhi), is a treasure trove of factual material concerning the bush administration and its rush to war, its record of deceit, and much else. For quite a while now I have been asking readers of my own blog to check out Gandhi's work, and I am very pleased to share a small excerpt of it with you today.

Does Reality Even Matter?

I've looked at clouds from both sides now,
From up and down,
But still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all.

-- Joni Mitchell

The First Annual BRAD BLOGATHON began late Friday afternoon and was scheduled to end Monday evening. As combined blogging extravaganza and fundraiser, it has been a mixed success ... so far!

The blogging has been wonderful; we have enjoyed the online company of very distinguished patriots, some of whose words appear here only rarely. Unfortunately, our fundraising efforts have been less effective than we had hoped. Therefore we have no choice but to continue the BLOGATHON.

As regular readers of this space already know, Brad's blogging permissions have been revoked, and of course we all hope this situation will prove to be temporary.

You can help Brad regain his blogging rights! Please click HERE to donate via Credit Card or PayPal ... or ... click HERE to donate via Snail Mail.

We regret any inconvenience caused by the extension of the BRAD BLOGATHON. While you're waiting for normal service to resume, please enjoy The Dream Of Unlimited Swag: The Klepto-Plutocracy At War by Chris Floyd.

No Longer An Ohio Problem --- National Scandal Looms!
This Calls For ... OOPS! This Calls For Somebody Who's Probably Going To Prison ;-)

Guest blogged by Winter Patriot

You really have to wonder what Brad would say about this:

Scandal-Ridden OH Donor Met with Rove

Dean renews call for bush to return tainted cash

Last week, it was revealed that troubled Bush fundraiser Thomas Noe used his influence to attend a strategy session with Bush-Cheney '04 officials and also that the fundraiser who helped organize a lunch for the President appeared before a grand jury investigating the event. At least one attendee was later reimbursed by Noe so that they could attend the lunch, a clear violation of campaign finance laws.

"This is further proof of the Republican Party's culture of corruption," said Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean. "Noe raised vast sums for Bush, sometimes using questionable methods and was granted access to the President's top campaign aides. Republicans in Ohio and Washington have made this pay-to-play atmosphere par for the course. I again call on President Bush to return all money raised by Noe for his campaigns."

Spokesman refuses to repeat earlier statements!!
and the story is on CNN!!
By Winter Patriot on 7/11/2005 1:24pm PT  

Guest blogged by Winter Patriot

Many of us thought we'd never see anything like this on CNN

WASHINGTON (AP) --- For two years, the White House has insisted that presidential adviser Karl Rove had nothing to do with the leak of a CIA officer's identity. And President Bush said the leaker would be fired.

But Bush's spokesman wouldn't repeat any of those assertions Monday in the face of Rove's own lawyer saying his client spoke with at least one reporter about Valerie Plame's role at the CIA before she was identified in a newspaper column.
...
White House press secretary Scott McClellan refused to discuss the matter at two news briefings Monday. He said he would not comment because the leak is the focus of a federal criminal investigation.

Is it really? And CNN is saying so? In public?

What is this nation coming to??

UPDATE: Somehow, the White House Press Corp suddenly grew a set. Extraordinary transcript here. Watch Scottie sweat! CrooksAndLiars has the video.

UPDATE 7/12/05 12:04am: Citizen's for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), the folks responsible for helping to write the ethics charges against Tom Delay last year (the ones that stuck!) are calling for the Bush to remove Rove's security clearance pending the outcome of the Plame Investigation!

UPDATE 7/12/05 2:53am: United States Senator Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ) issued the following statement to RAW STORY

“Karl Rove has accused liberals of not understanding the consequences of 9-11, but he's the one who blew the cover of a covert CIA agent. The President should immediately suspend Karl Rove's security clearances and shut him down by shutting him out of classified meetings or discussions.

The excuses offered by Karl Rove's lawyer don't pass the laugh test. Naming someone's spouse is the same as naming them. And as a 31-year veteran of politics, Karl Rove should know that if you want to keep a secret, you don't tell a reporter.”

more as it develops...

Plan to File Charges Against Lisa Swartz (BOE-R)!
County Prosecutor Calls BOE Meeting for Monday!
By Winter Patriot on 7/10/2005 10:30am PT  

A BRAD BLOG exclusive. Guest blogged by Winter Patriot

According to a recent statement from Dr. Robert J. Fitrakis:

For those of you following the Sherole Eaton story in Hocking County, Ohio, I spoke with her last night and found out the Hocking County Prosecutor has called for a meeting of the Board of Elections on Monday (tomorrow, July 11). Voting rights activists have already contaced the Sheriff's dept. regarding Lisa Swartz's conducting of an admitted Republican fundraiser while she worked for the BOE. Activists in Hocking County plan to file theft in office and other related charges against Swartz. As most of you may know, the Hocking County BOE is under a temporary restraining order from replacing Sherole Eaton since last Tuesday thanks to Cliff Arnebeck. Cliff and I are working on a permanent injunction to have Eaton reinstated to her job with BOE since she is a whistleblower.

This is the kind of story we watch very closely...

The following excerpt from a supposedly "private" e-mail has been "leaked" to agents of the international press:

To: "Brad Friedman" Brad.Friedman@cville.com
From: "Winter Patriot" wp112263@hotmail.com
Subject: "I wouldn't wanna make a liar out of you..."

... and I DID hear you correctly when you said you can't post on your own blog

so I have turned off all your permissions

More Gorgeous BradBlogger Artwork!!
By Steve Viele on 7/9/2005 11:13pm PT  

Guest Blogged by Steve Viele

Many thanks to Joan, who came through for the Silent Auctions with some wonderful contributions of her artwork. (Many thanks to Peg C. as well, for her beautiful Fractal Art contributions which we are selling, rather than auctioning).

What we and Joan are offering for auction are giclee reproductions of some of her work: “The Three Witches” and several other pieces, some of which ex-AG Ashcroft would have draped. I understand that giclee is a method of reproduction that is quite popular now and gives a quality that simulates the original and can be printed on different kinds of canvases (at least I know that her “The Three Witches” is printed on water color paper).

Because this is a fundraiser and because we will have certain costs to get the pieces to anyone who wins the auctions, we will have to ask for a minimum bid of $100 for any of these pieces. I believe there can only be one winner for each piece but we can certainly ask Joan whether more than one giclee of a given piece can be produced if an item is particularly popular.

The auction for each of these pieces is officially open. To make it a silent auction, bidders will need to place their bid by e-mail (please include at least your first name or an appropriate pseudonym) to BradBlogathonFundraiser@yahoo.com (or click here). The auctions on all items will close at noon Pacific Daylight Time (that's 3pm Eastern Daylight Time) on Wednesday July 13th. The winners (if there is at least a minimum bid on any or all of the items) will be posted on BradBlog by about 3pm PDT (6pm EDT) and will also receive an e-mail notification.

Check Joan's pieces out. They are all worthy of your bids but please also remember this is a fundraiser and it is also Brad's Birthday next week. Maybe someone wants to buy one of the pieces for Brad!!!
