Hold The Dems Accountable for the Substance of their Memos! Help Senators Graham & Cornyn HERE!
Senator Lindsay Graham of South Carolina vowed to be the Democrats' "worst nightmare when it comes to what these memos said. I will make sure the substance of the memos is pointed out over and over and over." The Washington Times, November 25, 2003.
If you are unfamiliar with the Democrat Memos, click here (intelligence) and here (judiciary).
Lindsay Graham is on the right track, but he needs encouragement and he also needs to know that he has popular support.
Please call Senator Graham at (202) 224-5972 or (803) 933-0112 and let him know that he is doing the right thing by vowing to hold the Democrats accountable for the substance of their memos and not to let the Democrats get away with their usual stunt of shifting the focus and blaming the cops (GOP) for catching the robbers (Dems).
You may email Senator Graham by clicking here.
Senator Cornyn has also expressed interest in exposing this atrocity. Senator Cornyn can be reached at 202-224-2934 or 713-572-3337. His fax number is 202-228-2856.
Email Senator Cornyn by clicking here or here.
Here is a sample email to send if you don't have time to compose one:
I'm writing you regarding a grave threat to the safety and security of Americans at home and abroad.
As I am sure you are aware, a memo from the Democrats on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has surfaced that outlines a plan to: 1) fabricate political conclusions to damage and embarrass the President and the administration, 2) pull the trigger on an "investigation" under false pretenses, using the resources of the Intelligence Committee to search (or fish) for information that might support the pre-determined political conclusions, and 3) use a loophole in the Intelligence Committee rules to attach such politically motivated material to any report the committee releases.
The purpose of the Intelligence Committee is to determine how best to make America safer by improving our intelligence capabilities, not to conduct opposition research for the Democratic National Committee.
This is dangerously close to treason -- certainly it qualifies as dereliction of duty. As Senator Zell Miller said, "heads should roll."
The Democrats on the Intelligence Committee have refused to disavow the memo, choosing instead to pursue a "spin" strategy of demanding to know how the memo became public. That is blaming the cops for catching the robbers, and cannot be permitted to stand.
Therefore, I ask you to call for the immediate resignation of Senator Rockefeller. As ranking Democratic member of the Intelligence Committee, he is responsible for the acts of his subordinates. We cannot permit America's national security to be damaged by partisan political warfare.
Further, other memos repeatedly make clear that a small collection of extreme left groups -- abortion groups, race organizations, labor unions and leftist groups specifically focused on judges -- are driving the Democrats' domestic agenda and decisions. These groups tell Senate Democrats whom to attack and vote down, when to hold hearings on which nominee, how many hearings to hold and rules for allowing floor votes. The memos even indicate that the groups persuaded Democrats to delay nominations in order to affect pending cases.
Please do the right thing and "make sure the substance of the memos is pointed out over and over and over." The American people need to know what the elected Democrat officials are trying to get away with, especially given that their media acolytes are more than willing to aid and abet them by suppressing information, like the substance of the memos, that might damage the Democrats politically.
Don't let the Democrats get away with blaming the cops for catching the robbers.

The top story on Yahoo this morning was "outraged, simply OUTRAGED!!!" the democrats were about Ashcroft allowing an independent investigation into that bogus CIA "leak" story. The media and the liberals tried to milk that one, and now they are trying again.
Memo Gate puts that nonsense to shame by comparison. It appears the Dims are trying some pre-emptive bomb throwing to hide their own shame.
Democrats Divided Over CIA Leak Probe
WASHINGTON - While some Democrats applauded the decision, several presidential hopefuls attacked the appointment of a federal prosecutor to take over the politically sensitive investigation into whether a Bush administration official leaked a CIA operative's name. p> Attorney General John Ashcroft (news - web sites) removed himself Tuesday from the inquiry into who leaked the name to a newspaper columnist. U.S. Attorney Patrick J. Fitzgerald of Chicago, a career prosecutor, will lead the probe.
Deputy Attorney General James Comey announced that Ashcroft had stepped aside to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest after reviewing evidence recently developed in the inquiry. He would not discuss the evidence.
Democrats have been calling for Ashcroft to step down, but the critics were divided over the decision to keep the investigation in-house with a promise of independence for Fitzgerald.
Senate Democratic leader Tom Daschle of South Dakota called the announcement "as welcome as it is overdue."
"For the sake of America's national security, I hope the administration will give the new counsel its full cooperation and the resources needed to quickly get to the bottom of this urgent matter and swiftly bring to justice the person or persons responsible," he said.
Sen. Jay Rockefeller, senior Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Ashcroft made the right decision.
"Our intelligence agents need to know that we understand the sacrifices they make and that we will come to their defense when someone puts them at risk," said Rockefeller, D-W.Va.
But the Democratic presidential contenders made clear that the decision will be a campaign issue.
"The public will not likely trust the results of an investigation headed by a political appointee, especially when the special counsel is constrained by Department of Justice (news - web sites) regulations that severely curtail the prosecutor's autonomy," said Sen. Joe Lieberman (news - web sites) of Connecticut. Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean (news - web sites) said Justice Department (news - web sites) lawyers still will be answering to a political appointee despite the change. "Whether it is a special counsel or the Justice Department inspector general, the American people deserve a person whose honesty, objectivity and fairness are guaranteed to investigate this serious matter," Dean said. North Carolina Sen. John Edwards did not criticize the appointment, but said Ashcroft's decision "comes far too late. President Bush (news - web sites) knows how to get what he wants inside his White House, yet for months, his administration has somehow failed to find the person responsible for this dangerous and destructive leak." Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites) called Fitzgerald's appointment "a half measure and nowhere good enough to restore public confidence in this tarnished agency."
What a crock ! Heads should roll over the 'RATS playing politics with our safety !
