"Judiciary Committee Threatening to ARREST ROVE!"
BREAKING: Judiciary Committee Threatening to ARREST ROVE! (Conyers: "Kick Rove's A**"?)
[This sounds like a Make A Wish foundation wish fulfillment for hardcore leftwing loons.]
I was recently watching Verdict with Dan Abrams. Abrams does a better job than anyone else on TV (maybe even than Olbermann) in covering the corrupt prosecution of Don Siegelman. Robert Wexler was on, and they were talking about the case. Wexler serves on the house committee that is investigating this case. He said that they are trying to get Rove to testify without a subpoena. Rove is refusing, and is making it clear that he will not comply with a subpoena (since when did subpoenas become voluntary?). Rove is raising more "executive privilege" crap. Wexler said that Mukasey has made it clear that he will not enforce a contempt citation against Rove. Congress has become powerless against this president who fancies himself a king. I have never forgiven Schumer or Feinstein for what they did on Mukasey's confirmation, and I have refused to give money to the DSCC because of Schumer's action. This further validates my anger. But Wexler then said something that no democrat has mentioned yet. He said that if Mukasey doesn't enforce a contempt of congress citation, that congress would hold Rove in inherent contempt.
[Inherent contempt? Is this like an inherent traffic ticket?]
If held in inherent contempt, congress would order the house sergeant-at-arms to arrest Rove, and hold him in the capital basement. Congress would conduct something similar to a trial, and force Rove to testify. This method was often used in the 19th century.
[Only an inherent sergeant-at-arms could arrest an inherent Rove based on inherent contempt.]
You want to know why republicans lost a house seat in a district in which Bush got 62% of the vote? You want to know why people are leaving the republican party in droves? You want to know why we are looking at the possibility of 60 senate seats? Rove's criminality is one good reason why. Another good reason would be Bush's recent claim that he is giving up golf to 'sacrifice' for the troops in Iraq.
[You want to know why the Republicans won't lose as many seats as you hope? The California Supreme Court approving of gay marriages is one good reason.]
The damage this president has done to the constitution has been beyond calculation. He breaks the law at will. He tortures, he commits war crimes. It is my hope that as president, Barack Obama will name a special prosecutor to investigate all of the crimes that this petulant boy emperor has committed. Crimes against humanity. Crimes against the constitution. George Bush belongs in prison.
[President Obama, please authorize the Chekhist squads to arrest all Republicans and others guilty of Thought Crimes.]
UPDATE Dan Abrams just said that Conyers on the Judiciary Committee is threatening to ARREST ROVE! They can actually issue an arrest warrant, and then send the sergeant-at-arms anywhere in the country to arrest this son of a b****.
[Might as well send the same sergeant-at-arms to airport bathrooms to peek in the toilet stalls in order to arrest wide-stance Craig again.]
It is about time that congress remind this boy emperor that we have THREE branches of government, and that the president is NOT a king.
[Will the sergeant-at-arms be carrying an inherent arrest warrant? And now to hear from the rest of the KOmmies salivating at the prospect of frogwalking Karl Rove...]
That SOB and his pals all belong in jail. They are despicable people, and they need to be pursued. Enough of the double standards.
[You sound like you are inherently obsessed with Karl Rove.]
It's time people stopped being afraid of these bastards. The tide is turning.
[The Thought Police are coming!!!]
Obama is a professor in constitutional law. Who would know better than he how or if to pursue such a thing? He, above all, I completely trust to make the right decision. The fact is, we do not know about the sheer number of skeletons Obama would find in the closet if/when he is in the White House. (God grant he IS elected!!!)
[How about Tony Rezko's skeleton rattling around in Obama's closet?]
DON'T THREATEN THE BASTARD! Just arrest his skanky ass and frog march him into the Capitol.
[DON'T EVEN BOTHER WITH ACTUAL CHARGES! Just frogmarch Rove NOW!!!]
I don't care about watching the chase... What I'm interested in is the Capture. And the beautiful sight of justice being brought.
[I don't care about the charges... What I'm interested in is the Frogmarch.]
Hmmm. there used to be a good Frog March graphic. Someone had better find it and dust it off.
[I am helpfully providing that Frogmarch graphic at the top of this DUmmie FUnnies edition.]
Five cops kneeing on and handcuffing him after they tasered him a few times for good measure.
[And calling him really nasty names!]
I really want to see Rove arrested. Me and Joe Wilson both want to see Karl Rove frog marched into the Capital basement.
[Room 101 is located there.]
The one thought that kept me sane last year during disappointment after disappointment in our new Democratic Congress, was the idea that they were holding fire on jailing Rove, Rummy, Abu G and Addington until the general election campaign season. A smart political party would showcase Republican criminality in the bright light of campaign season.
[I think you already lost that sanity battle long ago.]
Hey why not waterboard Rove?
[Without a snorkle?]
We can't begin to get these SOBs until after GWB is out of office.
[Anyone out there doubt there would not be Chekist Thought Police out there under a President Obama?]
He could be impeached, which is not pardonable. Or Dems could threaten to impeach chimpy if he tries...
[The last I checked, Rove can't be impeached because he didn't hold official office which he no longer has.]
Could congress hire a bounty hunter? Charter some privateers?
[Arm Dog the Bounty Hunter with an inherent arrest warrant.]
I didn't even know inherent contempt was an option, so it is good that at least for some time Rove will have to answer to some kind of order.
[The Left has fallen in love with a new buzz phrase: inherent contempt.]
Calling for a world court is just going to sabotage any effort to get Americans to call these guys to Justice. First here. After all the details are known, and guilt is settled, then we can talk about other nations' complaint. Should they flee, and be hunted the world over, I think we have the right to demand extradition for charges here first.
[You will need some mighty powerful meds to put your Rovian obsession under control.]
After we rid ourselves of "we the Corporations".. We The People can take care of business. In the meanwhile, I will be fine if Bush (jumping ship to Paraguay) has extradition orders from the Hague.
[And don't forget to rid ourselves of "we the Republic" while you're at it.]
Can you carry a 50-pound iron mace?
[Paging Ben Burch!]
What are the mechanics? Do the Capitol Police have jurisdiction under Inherent Contempt to go outside DC and make an arrest? Would the House hire a bounty hunter?
[Would the House hire a shrink to handle your Inherent Insanity.]
In order to arrest him outside DC, I'm not really sure what would happen. I'd guess the usual interstate extradition rules would apply, which are slightly complicated. The DC Police would issue a request for assistance in recovering a fugitive, to whatever police department(s) they chose to ask. Rove might try to fight extradition to DC but I have a suspicion there are very few state judges who would let him get away with that. They probably could hire a bounty hunter, but I suspect they'd just get cooperation from whatever state police were in the neighborhood of Rove.
[While you hunt down Rove, he will be looking for that one-armed man to exonerate him of crimes against humanity.]
Arrest him! O please O please O please!!! Make this picture come true!!!
[Ranted a KOmmie foaming at the mouth while referencing the same pic as in this DUFU edition.]
I have this picture hanging in my office. Even the right wingnuts in the office get a chuckle out of it. Bet they won't be laughing when it really happens. But I sure as hell will. In fact, I'll be laughing, crying, cheering, clapping, jumping up and down... and then I'll probably be fired.
[Followed by institutionalization at Happy Farms]
Way too much foreplay DO IT ALREADY!
[Will you smoke a cigarette after drooling orgasmically all over your pizza-stained T-shirt?]
Now would be a good time for ... a few million Americans to show up in Washington, D.C. to call for impeachment, indictment, and prosecution for war crimes against this administration.
[Why don't you get William Rivers Pitt to organize that rally. It should be as successful as his September 2005 rally that was forgotten as soon as it happened.]
You know, seeing Rove hauled in would be a popcorn moment for the American people. We like a good drama, and I don't believe there's any love among the populace lost on Karl. It could turn into good theater.
[Watching this sanity-challenged KOmmie thread has already turned into good comedy theater.]
It would not be unjust to see this filth brought up before a crowd of The People who would watch and jeer as he was Tarred and Feathered.
[Then ride him through the streets in an open cart on the way to the guillotine.]
Given that he has already bought the land in Paraguay, and incidentally set up a clandestine military base nearby, and no doubt set up a headquarters for the Secret Service, and very likely pushed a top-secret long term protection contract to Blackwater through the Pentagon's black ops budget...
[To quote from your shrink's notepad: "JUST PLAIN NUTS!!!"]
This is such fantastic news! NOBODY has earned a frog-marching as much as KKKarl, and there is some fierce competition! For decades, he's poisoned our political discourse. He's shat upon so many of us. It's beyond time that he had his comeuppance. I am just thrilled! Don't get me wrong here, I want the entire LOT of them to go down; but Red Rover is one of the architects of this coup attempt, and his hubris has been enough to make me seethe with raw rage ever since he eluded Fitz. This would be a really, really, really, REALLY nice event; and Rover is such a wuss, I'd be willing to bet that once he was under the spotlight, he'd crack like an egg. Shiite, if Abramoff can sing like a canary, the Rover will do an Aria before we know it! BWAHAHAHAHAHAhahahahahaha!!!!! Thanks for this wonderful news!
[Wonderful news! Your job application with the Thought Police has been approved, pending the election of Barack Obama to the presidency.]
What about Josh Bolton and Harriet Meiers? Why finally get serious about Rove? I'll believe it when I see it. And, if they do use the Seargent at Arms, they'd better have him go get the other two as well, or it will be a total farce which will appear they are singling out Rove at the exclusion of the other two--which will imply they could really give a shit about the law, but want to get back at Bush's Brain.
[Don't leave Laura Bush and Max the White House dog out of the equation.]
arrest karl rove (And throw away the key!! That man should have been imprisoned long time ago for all the harm he's caused here and abroad. Karl Rove is a menace to society, a modern-day Goebbels. Lock him up, try and convict and then fry him.
[Go straight to jail!! Bypass any judicial procedure!]
I've dreamed of Mr. Rove being frog marched in front of the cameras, for a very long time. Please force the issue Karl.
[Drooled the KOmmie in mid-frogmarch fantasy.]
I love Conyers, but... I don't like the "kick his ass" line at all. It allows the dumb talking heads to spin it as if he has a vendetta, as opposed to the truth, which is that Rove is a scumsucking, lying, thieving cockroach of a lawbreaker.
[But you don't have a vendetta, eh?]
they all deserve Mussolini treatment the only question is when will they get it
[Only after Rev. Wright's star pupil enters the White House.]
Catherine Crier was on Abrams program, commenting on the statement by Conyers. She said, "It's about time!" I'll second that.
[Absolutely. Catherine Crier is just as looney as the KOmmies on this thread.]
Could it be? Fitzmas? I think Patrick Fitzgerald has time in his schedule to PROSECUTE!!!
[You already got your Fitzmas present in the form of Karl Rove being indicted on May 12, 2006.]
I say up the ante and hold MUKASEY in contempt
[And Max the White House Dog!]
Frogmarch his ass into jail. Rove is evil incarnate, or as close to that as we've ever seen in American politics. Take his blackberry and put his ass in the slammer. Then apply some enhanced interrogation tactics on that ass. Who knows, maybe he won't confess.. in which case we'll know for certain he's not even a human being.
[Is that you, Catherine Crier?]
The payback the man, and the rest of 'em have coming, is biblical in scope.
[Enjoying the Rubber Room accomodations?]
An october surprise of our own for ONCE! Timing is everything on this one, I dont know that its been this planned, but honestly, the weather couldnt be better for all of this. October will be a beautiful stage-play as Rove and probably several other WH staffers get dragged before congress or alternately a police showdown takes place as Bush thinks he can force things, and we see a total and complete meltdown in washington. Im sure the military would dump bush in a second if told by Obama theyd be pardoned for mutinying against Bush.
[And of course, there would nothing at all political about Rove's inherent arrest in October, eh?]
Karl Rove belongs in prison together with the rest of the criminals in the Republican Party.
[Said the captain of the Chekhist Thought Police. ...And to all you media folks out there, please remember that this is the supposedly sane Daily KOs that so many of you profess to admire.]
