Cheney: In Lake Forest today for RNC fundraiser.


Vice President Dick Cheney will touch down in the area for just under two hours today for a fund-raiser to benefit the Republican National Committee in Lake Forest.

Cheney will fly in and out of Waukegan Regional Airport and then head to the Lake Forest home of William Strong, a vice chairman of Morgan Stanley, the Wall Street financial services firm.

Strong is a member of the elite fund-raising network that solicited money for the Bush/Cheney 2004 re-election campaign.

Strong was a "Bush Ranger,'' meaning he raised at least $200,000 from other donors for the ticket.

About 40 major contributors are expected at the late afternoon Lake Forest event.


Will Cheney Discuss His Role in Valerie Plame Case With the 40 Republican Donors? Only Asking.....
Since the Establishment Media has been asleep at the switch, Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald has made a series of devestating filings before Judge Reggie B. Walton, in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, which have placed a new spotlight on the personal role of Vice President Cheney in the leaking of the identity of Central Intelligence Agency office Valerie Plame Wilson.
These filings, from May 12 and May 24th include a bombshell exhibit: a copy of Joe Wilson's July 6, 2003 New York Times op ed, "What I Didn't Find in Africa," with handwritten margin notes from Vice President Cheney, and extensive underlinings of the article text. Among the notes on the article in Cheney's handwriting: "Do we ordinarily send people out pro bono to work for us? Or did his wife send him on a junket?"
Does anyone out there want to guess as to why the "Establishment" media do not want to do what any first year law student knows to do, that is to show a motive for the actions of an accused criminal. Libby obviously had a motive for failing to tell the truth during his questioning in the grand jury. And there is only person higher up that Libby answered to........
Strictly speaking, if I were Mr. Libby, I would throw myself at the mercy of the court, and repeat, over and over again.... "The Devil Made me do it." Gerald Pechenuk

Plame was the janitor for the CIA, and her husband was a window washer. Cheney is not as corrupt as Rham (D-tomczak) ,or Dickie Daley who have run Chicago as a criminal enterprise for years, and will soon join his pal George Ryan in a nice federal pen somewhere. Now thats a Fitzgerald investigation I am waiting for!!!! Plame and Joe Wilson are 2 attention starved posterchildren of some leftwing wacko conspriacy. I will give Lynn credit she posts both sides. Even thought I know she doesn't agree with me.
