Portgate Deal Needs To Be Stopped

The Washington Times has finally weighed in on this disaster waiting to happen, now known as the Port Deal. I don't know about you, but I am still a bit amazed at the relative lack of coverage this has gotten by the MSM, long before now. In fact, ABC Radio White House correspondent Ann Compton was caught off guard about this story, while she and other member of the WH Press Corps were screaming "conspiracy" on the Cheney incident.

Reuters is reporting that legislation will be introduced to block this idiotic venture, by two Democratic Senators.

There are a few other articles on this. If you search hard enough, you can find them. But the media seems to be more enamored with the Cheney incident and the wiretapping issue. They focus on what has happened and what it happening, rather than what may happen in the future. They would rather be reactive than proactive.

NewsMax seems to be leading the charge on this. Even World Net Daily, which usually covers these kinds of things pretty thoroughly, only has one link.

So, what does a person have to do to get informed on this?

The blogosphere seems to be abuzz.

AICS at The Logic Lifeline, shows the dots connected.

Cubed at the Sixth Column has a post, as well.

And as always, you can always count on Always On Watch to be watching.

My plan is to keep harping on this as it develops, until it is stopped. Part of that plan is to write my congressman, both of my senators, and the White House. I will make my voice heard.

How about you? What will you do about it? Will you just blow it off? Or will you get engaged and do something about it and make your voice heard?

How to contact the White house.

How to find out who is your Representative and contact him/her.

Don't just sit there and bitch about it. Do something now.


Alpha Patriot has a good post on this with lots of links and quotes.

I try to watch. But I have to tell you that the acceleration of dangerous trends is alarming right now.

I hear you. We now have to sleep with one eye open.

Franky, I can't believe that this deal made it this far down the road. My guess is it will be stopped. It will be a public relations nightmare if it goes through. I often think that this administration is politically tone deaf.
