Two news items that really ought to run together:
August 13, Providence Journal:
Ex-Sen. Chafee joins Republicans for Obama
August 13, Gothamist:
Actor Ed Asner, former Dallas Cowboy Mark Stepnoski, and formerly famous hip hop group Arrested Development are leading a petition drive to get a referendum on New York Citys November ballot that would establish a new 9/11 investigation. If the group, called 911 Truth, can collect 30,000 signatures before September 4th, the City Council will be required to consider the measure, which calls for an investigative panel with subpoena authority.
Former Senator Mike Gravel (who would join the panel along with former senator Lincoln Chafee, Asner and 9/11 widow Lorie Van Auken) tells NY Mag that the original commission didnt get to the bottom of anything. We need to investigate from scratch. Among the Top 40 reasons the group gives to doubt the official story of 9/11, from their website:
"Al-CIA-da?" The longstanding relationship between US intelligence networks and radical Islamists. Flight 93. Did the Shanksville crash occur at 10:06 (according to a seismic report) or 10:03 (according to the 9/11 Commission)? Does the Commission wish to hide what happened in the last three minutes of the flight, and if so, why?
Pentagon Strike. How was it possible the Pentagon was hit 1 hour and 20 minutes after the attacks began? Why was there no response from Andrews Air Force Base, just 10 miles away.
Does Team Obama need one-third of the "Republicans For Obama" giving off a whiff of Truther?

These guys sure are fixated on minutes. I remember so many Dems., from Michael Moore on down, were pissed off at Bush because he stayed in that school on Sept. 11th for 7 minutes after the aide whispered in his ear about the attacks. I have never believed that we would have had any better response to Sept. 11th if only Bush had jumped out of his seat immediately and started running around barking out orders.
“Chafee, Republican For Obama, Wants 9/11 Reinvestigated”
So it’s not enough to be a lefty, he’s got to be nuckin’ futs as well.
“Lincoln Chafee, Republican For Obama, Wants”
Well, that’s all that liberals like LC do.
This sort of mantra by many here on Free Republic shows just how short-sighted those same people are.
It is better to fight for the potentially less practical, conservative candidate every time. That national party had supported this idiot for years, too, over more conservative options.
I hate to admit it, but I'm very likely going to vote for McCain, a man only a half-degree off from Chafee, simply because we have no practical alternative.
This country is nuts. At least, with Chafee’s help, we'll know the “truth” behind Chaney's planting of the charges in the Trade Center—NOT!
And if that happened, Moore would be saying, "Look at how scared little Bushie is! It's like he prepared to act that way, like he knew this was going to happen, and wanted to use the opportunity of Americans dying to polish his 'take no prisoners' image. His being so agitated shows he'd been drinking, and realized he didn't have what it takes to be in charge of the Amerikkkan war machine, while at the same time shows he is an evil overlord in charge of that same war machine."
When asked about the contradictions in that statement, Moore would call the questioner a Nazi. And then Bill Maher's audience would laugh and applaud.
>formerly famous hip hop group Arrested Development<
Now that’s sad. Vanilla Ice should be more popular than the “Troothers”.
“Truthers” are vile creatures.
And they are falsely calling Corsi a truther
Just imagine what would have happened if the aircraft had all been shot down without reaching their targets.
You could have fun filling in the rest of the sentence with this one.
As soon as I heard Rosie O’Donnell proclaim that fire couldn’t melt steel..I immediately put my welding rig in a garage sale.
It was obviously defective.
So many right answers for “Spot the looney.”
Ya know I always wondered about those 3 minutes..,,but then I lost track of 3 or 4 years so maybe its not a big thing
It’s like playing “Hi, Bob” when he’s at the office all day...
LC was NEVER Conservative.
Never has a group been more appropriately named. Bingo on the branding.
Whenever one of these nuts opens their mouth to me, I tell them they are racists...How so? Well...what are they really saying..they’re saying that although Muslims have taken the credit, they don’t believe that they are capable of pulling of such a dastardly plan. They must be too stupid..NO..the only people smart enough to pull off such a caper are OLD WHITE GUYS....Think about it.
I actually think the true racists are those who want us to intervene in Darfur but are against the war in Iraq.
Saddam was killing more people than in Darfur so are those people saying only the darfur people are worth saving?
Rosie o’Donnell said that the way the WTC collapsed indicated that there were likely explosives planted in the buildings. After all, Rosie knows a thing or two about the structure of buildings and the laws of physics, doesn’t she? (sarcasm)
My Dad allegedly worked in a steel mill for 25 years. He was lying obviously because fire can’t melt steel.
in the history books it will be noted. Karl Rove and Bush destroyed the Republican party
OK. I may just be showing my age ....47.....
But just who the H_ll are “Arrested Development” and “Vanilla Ice”.... NEVER heard of either (and Damn glad of it)....
not missing much, between the 2 of them there were a couple of hits
Oh, wow, it would have been a conspiracy by Bush to kill a gay passenger on one plane and Anthony Perkins’ widow on another.
Obama should be asked about 9/11 with all due haste before the convention. Many people, even talk radio hosts don't mention that horrible day very much anymore. But the defilement of that day by liberals should be used as a weapon against liberals by derailing of their uberlord, Obama. Obama would have a hard time not appeasing his base about who is responsible for 9/11.
The doctors obviously gave Virginia Chaffee the oxytocin too soon when giving birth to lil’ Lincoln, his brain was starved for oxygen from the very beginning.
You’re just now figuring that out?! I have been around the steel mines all my life. Steel is naturally occurring and comes out of the ground in the shape of bicycle and engine parts, nuts, bolts and girders. Just whatever ya need, just look around and it is there. Well, except ball-bearings, they are becoming increasingly rare and may soon move from threatened to the endangered list. :)
Now that is a statement I can agree with 100%!
So Chafee is a Truther. Why am I not surprised?
Chafee is a rat-fu@#er.
The poor man was obviously delusional and should report immediately to the Peoples' Revolutionary Psychiatric Institute for treatment. Oh wait, not until after January 21st.
More likely, it was Rosie O’Lardball jumping up and down on the roof that caused the collapse.
I once had a conversation with a nut-job who spouted Rosie's quote at me. I responded with, "You never took shop class in high school, did you? Look up the word 'anneal.'"
As soon as they figure out that Controlled Demolition Inc. and Senator Barbara Mikulski are both from Maryland this call for another 9/11 investigation will be dropped like an undercooked Polock Johnny's hotdog.
What did that fat little lesbian know and when did she know it?
Polock Johnny’s - home of the unburger
I couldn’t agree more, tolerating this RINO and others like Snowe from Maine always comes back to embarrass and undermine the Republicans and their legislative agenda. Party over principle always equals the diminution of the party. Unity, always a necessary component for victory, can not be built on party loyalty it must be the result of a shared set of core values and principles. The “big tent” of the Republican party will continue to shrink as long as those in leadership believe that sub dividing it is a plausible paradigm for growth.
Old Linc is such a bitter whiner. It’s a good thing Rhode Islanders decided they preferred an authentic liberal to a poser.
Why is he joining Republicans for Obama? He announced that he left the Republican party after losing his election that the RNC wasted all kinds of $ on and became an IND. Why isn’t he joining INDs for Obama?
There were 8 minutes of unique ums and uhs in a 40 minute press conference from Obama this year. Rush’s staff edited them together from that single appearance with NO repeats. Someone should loop that sound from Obama over Mikey Moore’s footage with the timer running.
These are pinko Red Dupes who insist that 9-11 was a US attack on ourselves. Screw these seditious traitors who defend terrorist groups and blame the US in a time of war.
Believe me, they’re not worth knowing. Sometimes, I’M ashamed I actually know of Arrested Devt.
“It is better to fight for the potentially less practical, conservative candidate every time. That national party had supported this idiot for years, too, over more conservative options.”
That may be, but for Rhode Island Chafee was almost too conservative. You will never win a senate or house seat from Rhode Island with a hard core conservative candidate. Among RI Republicans serving in Congress in the last 30 years: Claudine Schneider, John Chafee, Lincoln Chafee. Not a single conservative.
At her size shed better now something about that. ZING!
