Dole Lobbys For UAE Sale, Bush Out To Lunch, Secret Deals Exposed


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

The sale of several important port activities to the UAE is unfolding in a classic way. Bush gets caught, he gets mad and digs in his heels, it heats up, he then lies and says he is out of the loop and knows no one and nothing and then all the big wigs jump into the burning pool to put out the fire.

From Raw Story:
CNN reported on air Wednesday that former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole (R-KS) has been hired by Dubai Ports World to lobby for the approval of a deal that would give the company control of several major U.S. ports, RAW STORY has learned.

CNN's Andrea Koppel reports: "The Dubai-based company at the center of a controversy over the management of six U.S. seaports has hired former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole to lobby on its behalf against bipartisan criticism of the deal, a Dole aide said Wednesday.

"The 1996 Republican presidential candidate was "engaged" by Dubai Ports World shortly after lawmakers on both sides of the aisle began expressing their strong opposition to the deal, said Mike Galloway, an aide to the retired senator.
As I keep saying, the guys running America are traitors. Pure and simple. What is a traitor?

Someone who peddles their services to foreign powers and works for them rather than for America. Ronnie Reagan is a classic case of this, his high treason was to have a secret, handshake deal with the Japanese to throw in the towel concerning trade negotiations. He then collected the loot two weeks after leaving office. Since then, our trade deficit with Japan has been through the roof.

The elder Bush had deals with all and sundry, seeing Reagan get away with this. I remember the scandal over Jimmy Carter's drunk younger brother selling himseld to the Libyians, for example. Now, the entire Bush clan is owned by foreign powers in Saudi Arabia, Japan, China, Korea, you name it, they whore themselves for it.

From NJ. com:
New Jersey will file suit in federal and state courts seeking to stop an Arab company from taking over operations at Port Newark, Gov. Jon Corzine said yesterday.

The announcement came as a whirlwind of political backlash from Republicans and Democrats continued to batter the Bush administration's approval of the port deal. At issue is the acquisition of a British company that has been running six U.S. ports, including Port Newark, by Dubai Ports World, a state-owned business in the United Arab Emirates.
Desperately, many people are trying to block this. Turns out, Bush's buddies who were placed in positions of authority by Bush, tried to rush through this deal, not using the normal mechanisms of holding hearings and having investigations. They don't want any of their traitorous activities investigated!

This is why. From Associated Press:
The Bush administration secretly required a company in the United Arab Emirates to cooperate with future U.S. investigations before approving its takeover of operations at six American ports, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. It chose not to impose other, routine restrictions.

As part of the $6.8 billion purchase, state-owned Dubai Ports World agreed to reveal records on demand about "foreign operational direction" of its business at U.S. ports, the documents said. Those records broadly include details about the design, maintenance or operation of ports and equipment.

The administration did not require Dubai Ports to keep copies of business records on U.S. soil, where they would be subject to court orders. It also did not require the company to designate an American citizen to accommodate U.S. government requests. Outside legal experts said such obligations are routinely attached to U.S. approvals of foreign sales in other industries.
Oh, how far we have fallen. Imagine is a vast war unfolds and we need to control our shores. So, hand over everything to people on the other side of the planet deep within unstable territory.

One sad thing about the Bushes and their minions is, they think their co-conspiritors in distant lands will rule with an iron fist forever over restless, furious populations. This is why we do all the crummy things we do. We expect the rulers of many lands to betray their own countries and work for our benefit, not theirs.

But this is much worse. As usual, when traitors are destroying America, they like to hide everything. The Bushes are big on hiding stuff, so is Cheney. They have their arrest records erased, their military records purged, their government records classified or shredded. Even with all these efforts, details of their various crimes leak out like with the Downing Street Memos.
The Republican head of the Senate Armed Services Committee, John Warner of Virginia, planned an oversight hearing Thursday. Warner has expressed support for the agreement, describing the UAE as an important ally against terrorism.
Here is why we are doomed.

Warner, like all the other traitors, gets money from all sorts of people not all of whom are American or love this country. He gets money from folk who accept money from foreign powers and then funnel it to him. So he sees nothing wrong with betraying America. He didn't yell about 9/11 and why Rumsfeld sat around while America was under attack. Rumsfeld didn't even pause in meeting when the jets hit the WTC much less when they were reported hijacked nearly an hour earlier!

Even after that, he did absolutley nothing, he was goofing around at his desk when a jet hit the Pentagon. Why he wasn't immediately arrested baffles me. I was running around, yelling "America is under attack" when the first jet hit. By the time the Pentagon was hit, I was sitting there, saying, "We have been betrayed by our own rulers."

How on earth can we say the UAE is a partner in the "war on terror"? True, they want us in Iraq so we can put down Saddam who menaced them. They want us to kill Shi'a in Iran, too. But why did we go to war for them? They are costing us over a trillion dollars and they want us to spend another trillion fighting Iran? Huh? This is partnership?

Like hell.
Dubai Port's top American executive, chief operating officer Edward H. Bilkey, said he will work in Washington to persuade skeptical lawmakers they should endorse the deal; several Senate oversight hearings already are scheduled.

"We're disappointed," Bilkey told the AP in an interview. "We're going to do our best to persuade them that they jumped the gun. The UAE is a very solid friend, as President Bush has said."
We didn't bomb bin Laden back before 9/11 because the UAE royals liked to visit him. I am thoroughly disgusted and outraged. The traitors working for the UAE assure us that we should trust them. They will have Quisling Americans working for the royal family and they will serve who?

The royal family, not us!

I recall a revolution. One thing we did was expell the pro-royalists because we didn't want people who had divided loyalties running America. For many generations, anyone who wanted to be President had to first show they were not royal worshipping tools of any king or queen or sheik, for that matter.

Disgusting, isn't it, watching Bush literally kissing the mouth of kings. When Nancy Reagan kow towed to the Queen of England some of us were still able to feel outraged. Now, it is de rigeur. Gads. Arrest them all.

MORE NEWS:From Think Progress:
In a press briefing today, Secretary Rumsfeld revealed that he was not consulted about the decision to transfer operations of six key U.S. ports to the United Arab Emirates, a country with troubling ties to international terrorism.

QUESTION: Are you confident that any problems with security — from what you know, are you confident that any problems with security would not be greater with a UAE company running this than an American company?

RUMSFELD: I am reluctant to make judgments based on the minimal amount of information I have because I just heard about this over the weekend.
Another know nothing Repubublican tool. Turns out, Rumsfeld is on this committee that oversees these sorts of deals, Homeland Security and all that.
Donald Rumsfeld, as Secretary of Defense, is a member of Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States. As such, he was one of the people who, according to the Treasury Department, unanimously approved the sale on February 13. How could do that when he didn’t even find out about the sale until last weekend?
He is the same rubber stamp that didn't try to stop terrorists on 9/11. Like Bush, he constantly pleads stupidity and lack of knowledge. Like Condi, he can't imagine things that he was perfectly capable of imagining.

For example, the Pentagon did have war games with a jet hitting the Pentagon as the key event, less than a year before 9/11. He lied about the Pentagon's plans back then, again, claiming stupidity as his reason. Why are such dumb people running this country?

They belong in an asylum or prison.
