WASHINGTON A White House plan to broaden the National Security Agency’s wiretapping powers won a key procedural victory in the Senate on Thursday, as backers defeated a more restrictive plan by Senate Democrats that would have imposed more court oversight on government spying.

Okay, here is the winning campaign slogan. Not just for any specific presidential or congressional candidate (although it would win for them also). But also for the campaigns against fascism, corruption, wars based upon lies, 9/11 coverups, voting fraud, and economic problems.
Before I tell you the slogan, though, let me remind you that the economy is now more important to people than the war in Iraq. And the subprime meltdown and other economic problems are 0bviously on peoples' minds.
In addition, right or wrong, among many Americans who believe that wealth is a sign of favor from above, "bankruptcy" is thought of as failure.
Moreover, the phrase "morally bankrupt" is one of the worst insults that can be hurled at someone. Among "values voters", ethical integrity is the most important issue. Even among the secular left, corruption is one of the ultimate negatives in a leader.

Take three minutes to watch a music video -- and help defeat Rudy Giuliani!
A group of outraged New Yorkers has just released a new 3 min. music video to help people understand Rudy Giuliani's shameless exploitation of 9/11 and his unfitness to lead our nation.
To reach the widest audience, we need your help. On YouTube, the more views a video gets, the more visibility it gets.
So we are asking all our friends and supporters to
- watch this video (at least once)
- rate it (be honest) and
- send it to your whole network of friends and family with the same message.
We hope to get at least 1,000 views the first week – maybe much higher.
Please take a minute now - click here and watch the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnEgq6mShQ0
Thank you for your help.

Wayne, PA - January 25, 2008
Every decision that our government has made in the past six years has been based on their version of the events of September 11, 2001. What if their version of what happened is wrong? Would this mean that all decisions about the directions that our country has taken since 9/11, could be wrong? As an American citizen, would you want to know?
For Tuesday's "special night", we have placed ads in Philadelphia's most popular newspapers, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Philadelphia Daily News. The above image was taken from the Inquirers' "WKD" section. The Philadelphia Inquirer is listed as the 11th largest newspaper in the country with a circulation (according to Wiki) of 688,670, and the Philadelphia Daily News has a circulation of 122,606.
The long day was Giuliani's crucible -- a moment that showed his mettle and humanity under extreme pressure. Despite the heroic actions of hundreds of firefighters and police, it was also a public- safety meltdown caused not only by the streaking suicide planes, but in part because of lapses that occurred on Giuliani's watch.
He had outfitted his firefighters with flame-retardant gear, but their patchwork radio system sent many urgent evacuation calls vanishing into the ether. His trek through the rain of rubble to secure a temporary command center showed poise. But coordination between his field commanders was sporadic, and there was no backup for the shattered nerve center he had built in the tower complex.
A cowardly display

On Jan. 21, University of Wisconsin law professor Ann Althouse wrote on her blog, “I don’t know why the University of Wisconsin has not rehired 9/11 conspiracy believer Kevin Barrett to teach a course on the history of Islam. But if we know a person believes something truly nutty, are we not entitled to use that as evidence of his intelligence, judgment, and trustworthiness?”
This is an amazing statement coming from a professor of law — a position that presupposes a respect for carefully considered evidence. Her assault on Mr. Barrett, in which she makes no effort to consider the countless facts backing the so-called Truth Movement, is shamefully flippant...
...there is little doubt that in a courtroom, in which she would face that army of experts and their facts, she would be reduced to dust on the floor.
A promise to his dying son is why Joseph Zadroga will be present for President Bush's State of the Union Address Monday: to remind Capitol Hill of the importance of continuing health care and compensation for responders exposed to ground zero toxins.
The death of James Zadroga, a New York City detective who responded to the World Trade Center after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, has gained national attention. Two pathologists agreed that his death Jan. 5, 2006, resulted from pulmonary fibrosis, which they linked to ground zero contaminants.

The Bush administration paid a $5 million reward to a former Minnesota flight instructor who provided authorities with information that led to the arrest and conviction of 9/11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui.
The recipient, Clarence Prevost, was honored Thursday at a closed-door ceremony at the State Department, although the payout was secretly authorized last fall by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and the Justice Department, U.S. officials told The Associated Press.
The reward from the State Department's "Rewards for Justice" program is the first and only one to date to a U.S. citizen related to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the officials said.
