The Doc Searls Weblog : Wednesday, July 20, 2005, defeat ORIN Hatch

The Doc Searls Weblog : Wednesday, July 20, 2005

Cracking the Nut Phil Windley: Beating Hatch. Key point:
Techies been saying that the Internet is a great equalizer and this is our chance to prove it. Wouldn┬╣t it be ironic to use the technology that Hatch is out to destroy to challenge and beat him?

I concur, i've been very disappointed with Hatch's perceptions and implementation of intellectual property rights, as well as many other issues. i liked him years ago.

time to go.

energy situation.
china hasn't adjusted the yuan.
they are potentially an adversary.

China's stealth war on the U.S.

China's stealth war on the U.S.

why China UNOCAL deal should be nixed

this isn't about business,
except for the investment bankers that will profit.
it's about a foreign government buying strategic US assets.

Talking Points Memo: by Joshua Micah Marshall: July 17, 2005 - July 23, 2005 Archives

referencing Murray Waas, article, An Unlikely Story

If Murray Waas's sources are right, Karl Rove is in a ton of trouble, even if he did nothing more than we know already. According to his sources, Rove didn't 'fess up about the conversation with Matt Cooper when he was first interviewed by the FBI in 2003.

ROVE LIED to the FBI...surprise.

Scripting News: 7/19/2005

Bush considers life without Rove and decides
i think not.....

Bush the political animal is saavy. He understands
that without Karl, his capacity to control the
party and stay on message will be destroyed.

unfortunately, 75% of americans republican and democrats alike
want Rove fired if "involved" in a leak, not criminally liable.

probably has to do with Credibility.
Bush rarely listens to anyone but his inner circle.
i expect he'll do everything possible to keep Rove.
in spite of the damage it does to himself, his legacy and his credibility.

this just can't be spun, ..., people are sick of Rove's approach.
and how it affects this president.

Scripting News: 7/19/2005

Boston Globe: "President Bush vowed yesterday to fire anyone in his administration who is found to have ''committed a crime' involving the disclosure of a former covert CIA agent's name, seemingly redefining the grounds for dismissal the White House had pledged when the case erupted in 2003."

Just a guess that "committed a crime" is different from leaking the identity of a CIA agent, in time of war, in order to discredit a fomer official who exposed the lies that were the pretense for the war.

Fox considers Rove set up? By who? Bush, Cheney, ... arg..
sounds like fantasy.

I'm surprised that Fox isn't equally offended by the "lies"
from the administration and the White House
they we're manipulated and duped... as well.

Can Fox live up to "fair and balanced" and go get some
answers for the rest of us? go get 'em.

Sunday, July 17, 2005 - Politics - U.S.: China Nuke Remarks 'Highly Irresponsible' - Politics - U.S.: China Nuke Remarks 'Highly Irresponsible'

It's logical to presume as China, gains power, more threats or unnecessary irresponsible remarks are possible, including perhaps an eventual real confrontation.

Given this context, the government should nix the Unocal deal.
if we have a US company owned by the Chinese government,
an altercation will jeopardize a strategic asset, oil.

until the US finds tactile substititutes for oil. i say no.

ignore the pontifications, complaints or justifications,
we're just exposing ourselves to unnecessary risk.
