VFP Katrina Aid: $17K To VFP, $0 To Victims

Mother Sheehan fans will recall that as hurricane Katrina threatened to remove her grieving visage from the front page of the nation’s newspapers, Cindy got together with her pals, the Veterans For Peace, to start a Katrina relief effort.

Even the self-designated higher being, Michael Moore, began vouching and shilling for Cindy and the VFP’s Katrina relief program.

As discussed previously, the VFP asked for donations that they claimed would be used to "support" the Red Cross. (The VFP later falsely claimed that the Red Cross had designated them " the best shelter " doing Katrina relief. Despite the minor fact that the VFP never opened any kind of shelter.)

Meanwhile, the VFP accused the Red Cross of gross incompetence and bragged about looting Red Cross supplies and passing them out to the victims themselves.



Judith Miller Suddenly To Talk – To Avoid Real Jail

What with Cindy yesterday’s news and Roberts sworn in, this story could start showing up above the fold again. From the AP:

Miller Agrees to Testify in CIA Leak Probe

New York Times Reporter Judith Miller Agrees to Testify in CIA Leak Investigation, Leaves Prison

By John Solomon
Sep. 29, 2005 – After nearly three months behind bars, New York Times reporter Judith Miller was released from a federal prison Thursday after agreeing to testify in the investigation into the disclosure of the identity of a covert CIA officer, two people familiar with the case said.

Miller left the federal detention center in Alexandria, Va., after reaching an agreement with Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald. Legal sources said she would appear before a grand jury investigating the case Friday morning.



Sheehan Turns Pro – Gets Speaking Gigs

This seems to be Cindy’s day for spinning. This comes directly from our good friends at Cybercast News:

Mother Sheehan nobly lectures some reporters free of charge, after just having met with " war-monger " Sen. McCain.

Sheehan: ‘I Have to Pay My Bills, Too’
By Nathan Burchfiel
CNSNews.com Correspondent
September 28, 2005

College Park, MD (CNSNews.com) – Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan recently signed on with a speakers’ bureau, and her appearance on the lecture circuit drew mixed reaction Tuesday night, especially from her younger supporters at the University of Maryland.

Sheehan, whose son Casey was killed in the Iraq war in 2004, took part in a discussion organized by the Democracy Collaborative, a university-sponsored group that works to "strengthen democracy" by addressing "democratic dilemmas in theoretical and practical ways," according to its website.

Cindy Sheehan Smiled Through Her Tears – Rita

No apologies from Mother Sheehan, by way of the crackpot conspiracy mongers at BuzzFlash:

Why I Was Smiling and Hurricane Rita

by Cindy Sheehan

I had a huge grin on my face when I was getting arrested. I have received a lot of flak for smiling. Apparently I am not supposed to smile, but I had some really good reasons for doing so.

First of all, I was having fun. I was with a group of good-humored, cheerful, happy people. We were singing old protest songs and old Sunday school songs and clapping. I felt I had to be cheerful to set the tone. We didn’t want any trouble or to do anything non-peaceful. Secondly, when I got arrested and the officers lifted me out I was afraid that America would see my underwear and that tickled me.



Cindy Sheehan Describes “Her First Time”

Maybe those looks of orgasmic joy on Mother Sheehan’s face weren’t just in our pervy imaginings after all.

Once again, Cindy pours out her fulsome heart at the Howard Dean shill site, the Daily Kos:

My First Time

by Cindy Sheehan

Mon Sep 26th, 2005 at 16:04:44 PDT

The rumors are true this time. I was arrested in front of the White House today.

[Cindy is referring to the mistake where her arrest, which had been planned weeks in advance, was accidentally reported a day earlier than it actually happened.]

It was my first time ever being arrested.

[Cindy has tried to get herself arrested several times before in Washington, DC. But she was not a big enough name to get to the front of the line.]

We proceeded from Lafayette Park to the Guard House at the White House.



The Ecstasy Of St. Cindy – On Being Arrested

The latest of our wannabe martyred mother, from those masters of objectivity at the Associated Press via their spiritual brethren at Al-Jazeera:

Sheehan Arrested During Anti-War Protest

Cindy Sheehan, the California woman who has used her son’s death in Iraq to spur the anti-war movement, was arrested Monday while protesting outside the White House.

Sheehan and several dozen other protesters sat down on the sidewalk after marching along the pedestrian walkway on Pennsylvania Avenue. Police warned them three times that they were breaking the law by failing to move along, then began making arrests.

Sheehan, 48, was the first taken into custody. She stood up and was led to a police vehicle while protesters chanted, "The whole world is watching."

Sheehan’s 24-year-old son, Casey, was killed in an ambush in Sadr City, Iraq, last year.



Sheehan: We’re The Light, They’re Darkness

Having just embarrassed herself among her fellow crackpots by complaining about losing media attention to hurricane Rita, Mother Sheehan burned the midnight oil to scribe yet another rant for the Howard Dean paid shill site, the Daily Kos.

The self-appointed saint didn't mean what she said before about being ignored. Suddenly, Cindy is now "content." After all, she now has the moral authority of the Reverends Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson as her sword and buckler.

However, Cindy does admit she is a clown, which would seem to be some progress:

We Don't Exist

Sat Sep 24th, 2005 at 21:04:25 PDT

by Cindy Sheehan

Last weekend, Karl Rove said that I was a clown and the antiwar movement was "non-existent." I wonder if the hundreds of thousands of people who showed up today to protest this war and George's failed policies know that they don't exist.



Sheehan Says Hurricane Rita Is Just Rain

Mother Sheehan has taken the time out of her otherwise busy day, lecturing the nation and canoodling with the Reverend Jackson, to tell us we should pay attention to her and not to hurricane Rita.

From the Howard Dean paid shill site, the Daily Kos :

Floodwaters surround damaged homes in the aftermath of Hurricane Rita Sunday, Sept. 25, 2005 in Cameron, La.

rita ( 3.33 / 3 )

i am watching cnn and it is 100 percent rita…even though it is a little wind and a little rain…it is bad, but there are other things going on in this country today…and in the world!!!!

That’s kinda understandable ( 4.00 / 2 )

Rita is just a chicken coming home to roost.



Pictures From An Exhibitionist – Sheehan

Sorry, but I just can’t resist wallowing in the images from today’s Support The Terrorists rally:

Corn Denounced Today’s Rally Organizers

Below is a three year old article by the avowed socialist editor for The Nation, David Corn. In it Corn points out the background of the organizers of today’s ANSWER rally on the Mall in Washington, DC.

Those speaking at the demonstration today are much the same speakers who are always appear at these ANSWER rallies.

Apart from newly arrived star, Cindy Sheehan and her pals, felony ex-con racist Moslem, Malik Rahim, the rabidly anti-Semitic Hadi Jawad, and the convicted terrorist abettor Lynne Stewart – this is the same roster as has appeared at every other prior ANSWER rally. Such as at Bush’s 2005 inaugural.

But as Corn and others point out, ANSWER is a front for the Communist Workers World Party.

Sheehan Gets Award For… Truth-Telling?

From the American Chronicle, which would appear to be yet another organ of the CPUSA/Democrat Party:

Introduction of Cindy Sheehan, Recipient of Pacifica Radio’s Unvarnished Truth Award

By David Swanson

September 24, 2005

I came to know Cindy Sheehan in May, and – like most people – I immediately loved her. She is a very friendly and loving person, and you cannot work on a project with her without being constantly reminded of what it is all about, how important it is, how right it is.

Cindy does not talk about peace movement strategy as if she were working on any old project. She talks about the urgent need to end the vile crimes of the greedy bastards who sent her son to die so that they could grow rich on his flesh and blood.



Dem Leaders Duck “Hero Mother” Cindy Sheehan

And her paid Commie cohorts.

From the Charlotte Observer:

Top Dems leave as protest nears

Party split between anti-war activists and prominent critics

Fri, Sep. 23, 2005


WASHINGTON As the anti-war movement arrives in Washington this weekend, many Democrats are leaving.

Nationally known Democratic war critics, including Howard Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, Russell Feingold of Wisconsin and John Kerry of Massachusetts, won’t attend what sponsors say will be a big anti-war rally Saturday in Washington.

Today’s leading Democrats head a party divided over the war, and many leaders are wary of standing with anti-war activists, who represent much of the party’s base. The divide between anti-war activists and Democratic leaders underscores a challenge the party faces in the 2006 congressional elections and beyond.



Half Of Katrina Refugees Have Criminal Records

What’s this? From the Associated Press:

Half Katrina Refugees Have Records
Thursday, September 22, 2005

MIDDLETOWN, R.I. — After Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, federal officials flew Brian Murph and more than 100 other victims to Rhode Island. They were greeted by the governor and cheered by residents.

Then the handcuffs were placed on Murph.

State police did criminal background checks on every refugee and found that more than half had a criminal arrest records — a third for felonies. Murph was the only one with an outstanding arrest warrant, for larceny and other crimes.

Around the nation, state and local authorities are checking refugees’ pasts as they are welcomed into homes, schools, houses of worship and housing projects. In some states, half the refugees have rap sheets.



Thus Spake “Mother Sheehan” – Cindy Quotes

Given Cindy Sheehan’s million dollar ad campaign, and that she will be the star of the upcoming "Support The Terrorists" rally on the Ellipse in DC, it is perhaps timely to once again review some of her past pronouncements:

On America

"We began the killing as soon as we stepped foot on these shores [of America] and the killing has gone on unabated for over 200 years."

"There has always been excuses for wars, but NONE of them have been good or valid."  


"I was raised in a country by a public school system that taught us that America was good, that America was just. America has been killing people, like my sister over here says, since we first stepped on this continent, we have been responsible for death and destruction.



LA Official Caught With Katrina Relief Supplies

From the Associated Press:

Cedric Floyd on right.

Police Find Relief Supplies in City Official’s Home

Sep 21, 2005

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – Police found cases of food, clothing and tools intended for hurricane victims at the home of the chief administrative officer for a New Orleans suburb, authorities said Wednesday.

Officers searched Cedric Floyd’s home because of complaints that city workers were helping themselves to donations for hurricane victims. Floyd, who runs the day-to-day operations in the suburb of Kenner, was in charge of distributing the goods.

Police plan to seek a charge of committing an illegal act as a public official against Floyd, and more charges against other city workers are possible, police Capt. Steve Caraway said.

The donations filled a large pickup truck four times.
