Valerie Plame Lies About Scooter Libby, Drives Camaro Backwards in New Campaign Ad

 


Democrat Valerie Plame released a very slickly produced but factually inaccurate video today in her bid for Congress in New Mexico’s open 3rd congressional district. In the video, Plame claims, “I was an undercover CIA operative… then Dick Cheney’s Chief of Staff took revenge against my husband and leaked my identity. His Name? Scooter Libby. Guess who pardoned him last year?” A picture of President Trump is then displayed in the video.

Plame is lying. Scooter Libby did not leak her name. Richard Armitage, a deputy secretary of state under Colin Powell, leaked her name. This is not a theory. Armitage admitted that he leaked her name. This has been public knowledge since at least September 8, 2006, when the Washington Post published an article titled, “Armitage Says He Was Source of CIA Leak.”

It happens to most all Republicans. While they are the active opposition of Democrats and Liberals, they are evil incarnate. Somehow while he was President, Ronald Reagan was able to be simultaneously an amiable dunce and a war mongering mastermind. But ever since his death, he was a kind man of wisdom who would despise […]

Vox Indicts Jeb Bush for Manslaughter

 

imageJeb Bush has few defenders on the right. Both his family name and a number of ill-advised statements have left him on the outs with much of the Republican base. His defeat in the primaries will be lamented by few outside of a fairly small donor class in the GOP. As eager as I am to see his campaign left in smoking ruins, there are limits to the bounds of legitimate criticism.

As you may have guessed, the left’s best and brightest at Vox know no such boundaries. The world’s foremost explainers of things that require little-to-no explanation have published a piece by one Dylan Matthews that essentially accuses Jeb Bush of manslaughter because he doesn’t give enough money to charity. No, really.
