    Meet Nancy Pelosi's Three Dem Intel Options

    MEET NANCY PELOSI'S (D-SF) THREE DEM INTEL OPTIONS

    Pelosi's Three Choices To Chair House Intel Committee Are Either Under Investigation, Impeached, And/Or Weak On Terror

    ____________________________________________



    DEM INTEL OPTION ONE: CURRENTLY UNDER FEDERAL INVESTIGATION
    A Federal Investigation Is Examining Whether Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA) Provided An "Illegal Quid Pro Quo" To Lobbyists In Exchange For Their Help In Securing Her Top Intel Committee Spot:

    "Federal Officials Said ... That [Rep. Harman] Was The Focus Of A Year-Old FBI Inquiry Related To The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, Or AIPAC, A Powerful Pro-Israel Lobbying Group." (Mark Mazzetti, "For A Top Democrat, Further Climb Seems Out," The New York Times, 10/24/06)

    "The Officials, Confirming A Time Magazine Report, Said The Bureau Had Been Looking Into Whether She Had Made Improper Promises To The Group In Exchange For Its Efforts To Lobby Ms. Pelosi On Her Behalf." (Mark Mazzetti, "For A Top Democrat, Further Climb Seems Out," The New York Times, 10/24/06)

    "Time Reported That Investigators Were Looking At Whether Harman - Who Is Involved In An Intraparty Dispute Over Who Might Head The Intelligence Panel - Promised To Try To Persuade The Justice Department To 'Go Lighter' On The Former AIPAC Officials."(Dan Eggen, "Probe Of Harman's AIPAC Ties Confirmed," The Washington Post, 10/25/06)

    "If That Happened, It Might Be Construed As An Illegal Quid Pro Quo, Depending On The Context Of The Situation." (Timothy J. Burger, "Exclusive: Feds Probe A Top Democrat's Relationship With AIPAC," Time, 10/20/06)

    FACT: Rep. Harman Has Weak National Security Record:

    Rep. Harman Voted Against Authorizing Military Tribunals For Dangerous Terrorist Suspects, Including Al Qaeda Operatives, And Alleged 9/11 Mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad. (H.R. 6166, CQ Vote #491: Passed 253-168: R 219-7; D 34-160; I 0-1, 9/27/06, Harman Voted Nay)

    Rep. Harman Voted Against The Electronic Surveillance Modernization Act, Which Makes It Easier To Monitor Terrorist Communications. (H.R. 5825, CQ Vote #502: Passed 232-191: R 214-13; D 18-177; I 0-1, 9/28/06, Harman Voted Nay)

    Rep. Harman Opposed A Resolution Expressing "[S]upport For Intelligence And Law Enforcement Programs To Track Terrorists And Terrorist Finances ..." (H. Res. 895, CQ Vote #357: Adopted 227-183: R 210-8; D 17-174; I 0-1, 6/29/06, Harman Voted Nay)



    DEM INTEL OPTION TWO: AN IMPEACHED FORMER JUDGE

    Rep. Pelosi Might Choose Impeached Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) To Head Intel Committee:

    Pelosi Has Informed Colleagues That She Intends To Force Harman To Step Down, Replacing Her With Rep. Alcee L. Hastings Of Florida, The Second Most Senior Democrat On The Intelligence Panel." (Greg Miller and Richard Simon, "Harman Resists Push Off Spy Panel," Los Angeles Times, 5/18/06)

    In 1981, Rep. Hastings Was Indicted On Bribery-Conspiracy And Obstruction Of Justice Charges. (Dan Sewell, The Associated Press, 12/29/81)

    In 1988, House Democrats Led Impeachment Of Rep. Hastings. (William J. Eaton, "House Votes Impeachment Of Federal Judge In Florida," Los Angeles Times, 8/4/88)

    In 1989, A Democrat Senate Convicted Rep. Hastings Of Numerous Offenses And Removed Him From The Bench. ("Senate Finds Judge Guilty, Removes Him," Los Angeles Times, 10/20/89)

    FLASHBACK: Rep. Pelosi Even Voted To Impeach Then-Judge Hastings:

    Current House Leadership Voted To Impeach Then-Judge Hastings. "In 1988, Nancy Pelosi, the congresswoman likely to become speaker of the House if Democrats recapture the majority, voted to impeach a federal judge named Alcee Hastings. So did Steny Hoyer, the front-runner to become majority leader." (Editorial, "Matters Of Choice," USA Today, 8/31/06)

    "Now, 18 Years Later, These And Other Democrats Are Weighing Whether To Make Hastings Chairman Of The House Intelligence Committee If They Win In November (Or Ranking Member If The Democrats Fall Short Of The Majority)." (Editorial, "Matters Of Choice," USA Today, 8/31/06)

    The U.S. House Of Representatives Voted 413-3 On A Resolution To Impeach Then-Judge Hastings. (H. Res. 499, CQ Vote #254: Adopted 413-3: R 171-0; D 242-3, 8/3/88, Pelosi Voted Yea)



    FACT: Rep. Hastings Is Weak On National Security:



    Rep. Hastings Voted Against Making It Easier To Monitor Terrorist Communications. (H.R. 5825, CQ Vote #502: Passed 232-191: R 214-13; D 18-177; I 0-1, 9/28/06, Hastings Voted Nay)

    Rep. Hastings Also Voted Against Authorizing Military Tribunals For Dangerous Terrorist Suspects, Including Alleged 9/11 Mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad. (S. 3930, CQ Vote #508: Adopted 250-170: R 218-7; D 32-162; I 0-1, 9/29/06, Hastings Voted Nay)

    In October 2001, Rep. Hastings Opposed The PATRIOT Act. (H.R. 3162, CQ Vote #398: Passed 357-66: R 211-3; D 145-62; I 1-1, 10/24/01, Hastings Voted Nay)

    In December 2005, Rep. Hastings Voted To Stall PATRIOT Act Reauthorization. (H.R. 3199, CQ Vote #626: Motion Rejected 202-224: R 5-221; D 196-3; I 1-0, 12/14/05, Hastings Voted Yea)


    In March 2006, Rep. Hastings Voted Against Final Passage Of Several Amendments To PATRIOT Act Reauthorization. (S. 2271, CQ Vote #20: Motion Agreed To 280-138: R 214-13; D 66-124; I 0-1, 3/7/06, Hastings Voted Nay)

    Rep. Hastings Calls The PATRIOT Act "Completely Unacceptable." Rep. Hastings: "The Patriot Act has given the government new powers to bug telephones, monitor e-mails and Internet use, and search public databases. From the over-broad definition of domestic terrorism, to the FBI's new powers of search and surveillance, to the indefinite detention of both citizens and non-citizens without formal charges, civil liberties have been seriously undermined. This is completely unacceptable." (Rep. Hastings' Website, http://alceehastings.house.gov, Accessed 9/5/06)

    DEM INTEL OPTION THREE: WEAK ON NATIONAL SECURITY

    With The Investigation And Impeachment, Rep. Pelosi Is Now Forced To Consider Rep. Silvestre Reyes (D-TX) For The Top Spot On Intel Committee:

    "[Rep.] Reyes Is Being Considered As A Possible Chairman Of The House Intelligence Committee, A Democratic Aide Confirmed ..." (Suzanne Gamboa, "Reyes Considered To Head House Intelligence Committee," The Associated Press, 10/24/06)

    FACT: Rep. Reyes Opposed All The Key Tools Used To Protect Americans:

    "Reyes Has Been Outspoken As A Member Of The Intelligence Committee Criticizing The Iraq War And Warrantless Domestic Wiretapping." (Suzanne Gamboa, "Reyes Considered To Head House Intelligence Committee," The Associated Press, 10/24/06)


    Rep. Reyes Voted Against The Electronic Surveillance Modernization Act, Which Would Make It Easier To Monitor Terrorist Communications. (H.R. 5825, CQ Vote #502: Passed 232-191: R 214-13; D 18-177; I 0-1, 9/28/06, Reyes Voted Nay)

    Rep. Reyes Is Against Warrantless Surveillance, Even Days After A Terrorist Attack. Rep. Reyes: "What makes me even more worried is that this bill will create more problems, I think, than it solves. To give just one example, section 8 of HR 5825 gives the President special powers to conduct warrantless surveillance for 45 days following a terrorist attack. It sounds reasonable but as always the devil is in the details." (Committee On Intelligence, U.S. House Of Representatives, 7/27/06)


    Rep. Reyes Also Opposed A Resolution Expressing "[S]upport For Intelligence And Law Enforcement Programs To Track Terrorists And Terrorist Finances ..." (H. Res. 895, CQ Vote #357: Adopted 227-183: R 210-8; D 17-174; I 0-1, 6/29/06, Reyes Voted Nay)

    Rep. Reyes Voted Against Authorizing Military Tribunals For Dangerous Terrorist Suspects, Including Alleged 9/11 Mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad. (S. 3930, CQ Vote #508: Passed 250-170: R 218-7; D 32-162; I 0-1, 9/29/06, Reyes Voted Nay)

    Rep. Reyes Voted For The PATRIOT Act, But Then Voted To Stall It:

    Rep. Reyes Voted Twice For Passage Of The PATRIOT Act Reauthorization. (H.R. 3199, CQ Vote #414: Passed 257-171: R 214-14; D 43-156; I 0-1, 7/21/05, Reyes Voted Yea; H.R. 3199, CQ Vote #627: Adopted 251-174: R 207-18; D 44-155; I 0-1, 12/14/05, Reyes Voted Yea)

    Rep. Reyes Had Eight Opportunities To Stall The PATRIOT Act And Voted To Seven Times. (H.R. 2975, CQ Vote #384: Adopted 214-208: R 210-3; D 3-204; I 1-1, 10/12/01, Reyes Voted Nay; H.R. 2975, CQ Vote #383: Motion Agreed To 215-207: R 212-0: D 2-206; I 1-1, 10/12/01, Reyes Voted Nay; H.R. 2975, CQ Vote #382: Adopted 216-205: R 209-3; D 6-201; I 1-1, 10/12/01, Reyes Voted Nay; H.R. 2975, CQ Vote #385: Motion Rejected 73-345: R 1-210; D 72-133; I 0-2, 10/12/01, Reyes Voted Nay; H.R. 3199, CQ Vote #402: Adopted 224-196: 224-0; D 0-195; I 0-1, 7/21/05, Reyes Voted Nay; H.R. 3199, CQ Vote #401: Motion Agreed To 224-197: R 224-0; D 0-196; I 0-1, 7/21/05, Reyes Voted Nay; H.R. 3199, CQ Vote #413: Motion Rejected 209-218: R 9-218; D 199-0; I 1-0, 7/21/05, Reyes Voted Yea; H.R. 3199, CQ Vote #626: Motion Rejected 202-224: R 5-221; D 196-3; I 1-0, 12/14/05, Reyes Voted Yea)

    FACT: A DEMOCRAT WIN IN NOVEMBER = A VICTORY FOR OUR ENEMIES

    ....but that should make you liberal schmucks happy



    I think if the GOP would simply run any 60 second sound-bite with the freak pelosi, followed by the words 'Speaker of the House?', they might be able to increase our voter turnout. She would be an unmitigated disaster, though her mere presence might ensure a GOP win in 2008. Good trade-off? For the terrorists, anyway...

    Next they will be pushing jefferson(D-La.) for high office...you know, the guy with the fridge full of cash who made the National Guard go and get it for him on National T.V. during the hurricane. We don't see too much about that, do we? I wonder why?
