SUPPRESSION IN THE TEXAS MEDIA?

One would never know it, but the Democratic Party is alive and well in Texas. Despite the fact that our great state has been gerrymandered to smithereens by the likes of soon to be jailbird Tom DeLay, we Democrats do have more than a mere pulse.

The national media covered a debate between Democratic opponents in teeny Connecticut, but some how one of the largest states in the U.S. that also happens to house the fourth largest and most diverse city in the U.S, mysteriously falls off the radar screen.

Wake up mainstream media. Wake up or find some courage local media.

Our state's newspapers and dumbed down TV news are obviously married to or are cowards and are therefore terrified of the Republican Party machine.

Or they are simply lazy and don't do their homework.

Or a little of both

Texan Democrats are well informed. We know the facts and we have the figures. And we know that bully Rove no longer has any clothes. Indeed, he is completely naked and is an embarrassing buffoon. And of course there is the added distraction that Mr. Overly Fed Naked Boy must face with yet another trial.

Ms. Valerie Plame Wilson, the outed CIA agent, sued Rove, Cheney and Scooter boy yesterday.

Truth is on our side. Maybe when the press and media get it, they will grow some courage and do what they are hired to do.

PROOF OF MEDIA FEAR AND/OR SUCKING UP TO THE GOP

A volunteer for the TEXAS U.S. SENATE CANDIDATE BARBARA ANN RADNOFSKY campaign submitted a letter to the editor of the Houston Chronicle. The letter was published, (6/27/06), however an entire paragraph that had asked for a debate between Ms. Radnofsky and her opponent was conveniently omitted.

Letter Submitted to the Houston Chronicle by Carolyn:

To Whom It May Concern:

The election for the US Senate seat in Texas is four months away and all we hear is Karl Rove's cheap campaign rhetoric. I am sick of spin. I want to know about real policy issues and hear the candidates debate them.

We are at war on two fronts: Afghanistan and Iraq. We face nuclear threats from North Korea and possibly Iran. Our southern border is hemorrhaging, yet firms are never penalized for hiring illegals. Our public schools are next to last in the nation. Our deficit is in the trillions. We owe our souls to the Chinese. We are less safe than ever.

And yet our Congress has met a mere 76 times this year.

I want to hear what Ms. Radnofsky has to propose on Iraq, border security, immigration and the deficit. I also want to know why, during her two terms in office, her opponent has done so little to solve the grave problems that confront us.

I am tired of Rovian rhetoric. Voters deserve real debates, dialogue and discussion.

Sincerely yours,
Carolyn of Houston

EDITED VERSION OF CAROLYN'S LETTER PUBLISHED BY THE HOUSTON CHRONICLE:

The election for the US Senate seat in Texas is four months away and all I hear is Karl Rove’s cheap campaign rhetoric. I am sick of spin. I want to know about real policy issues and hear the candidates debate them.

We are at war on two fronts: Afghanistan and Iraq. We face nuclear threats from North Korea and possibly Iran. Our southern border is hemorrhaging, yet firms are seldom penalized for hiring illegals.

THANKS TO ALTERNATIVE MEDIA SOURCES, WE KNOW ABOUT THE PLAME-WILSON LAWSUIT

From Raw Story.com

OUTED CIA AGENT VALERIE PLAME WILSON SUES CHENEY, LIBBY AND ROVE

TEXAS INDIAN TRIBE FILE LAWSUIT AGAINST ABRAMOFF AND SAINTLY REED

Remember, our senior Senator from Texas, Kay Bailey Hutchison , is busy hosting fundraising events for Abramoff instead of going to work for Texans at U.S. Appropriations Committee Hearings.

Excerpt:

The Alabama-Coushatta tribe of Livingston, Texas, alleged the defendants defrauded the tribe, the people of Texas and the Legislature to benefit another of Abramoff's clients — the Louisiana Coushatta tribe — and "line their pockets with money."

"Ultimately, the defendants' greed and corruption led to the Alabama-Coushatta tribe permanently shutting its casino. The funding for economic programs evaporated, over 300 jobs were lost in Polk County and the Alabama-Coushatta tribe has spent years struggling to recover and revitalize its economy through other means," the tribe said in its lawsuit, obtained by The Associated Press.

The lawsuit also names Abramoff's ex-business partner Michael Scanlon, a former aide to former Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Texas; Neil Volz, a former aide to Rep. Bob Ney (news, bio, voting record), R-Ohio; and Jon Van Horne, Abramoff's former colleague at his law and lobbying firm, Greenberg Traurig.

TEXAS TRIBE NAMES ABRAMOFF AND REED IN LAWUIT

GOP DOES ALL IT CAN TO HINDER VOTING RIGHTS ACT RENEWA SO IT WILL NOT BE IN PLACE FOR THE 2006 ELECTIONS

This is the party that likes to wear white sheets and ride at night.

From Truthout.org.

TRUTHOUT.ORG: "CHANCES OF VOTING RIGHTS RENEWAL DIM"

DO NO RE-ELECT STREETWALKER TYPE POLITICIANS WHO DO NOT WORK FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BUT PREFER INSTEAD TO PANDER TO CORPORATIONS AND LOBBYISTS.

Libby Shaw will be on vacation until the end of the month. If anyone should happen upon this blog who would like to help win back our government, state by state, please visit TEXAS U.S. CANDIDATE FOR U.S. SENATE, MS. BARBARA ANN RADNOFSKY'S BLOG and make a donation.

No donation is too small.

By the way, Ms. Radnofsky does not accept money from corporations or lobbyists. She will not be beholden to the big dudes calling all shots.

Get a grip folks and step up to the plate. We Texan Democrats don’t do $10,000 per plate dinners like the elitist, smug and obviously proven corrupt GOP.

We are the party of the people and stand on principle. LS
