President Bush’s top advisor, Karl Rove, came to the UP this weekend.
He spoke at the Marquette County Republican Party’s annual Ronald Reagan Dinner Saturday, in celebration of Lincoln Day at the Holiday Inn in Marquette, MI.
“‘Karl’s very interested in Michigan and what’s going on,” says local party chairman Joel Westrom. “He’s concerned about our economy and concerned about our leadership, but more importantly, he’s interested in what’s going on here.”
Anyone else interested in what’s going on here can call Westrom at 906-360-0020 or send him an e-mail at:

THIS BRINGS US BACK to Karl Rove’s visit to Marquette to rally the troops and survey the field of battle in the Great Lakes State. While a case could be made that a trip to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is a great way to beat the neo-tropical summer heat in Washington, Rove is not the kind of guy to just throw a dart at the map, just aiming for someplace north of the 45th parallel or higher. He is a relentless competitor, ever “On the Offensive,” to use a phrase from Greenberg et al.
I am not sure I would have picked Bart Stupak as a potential prey for a GOP pick-up in Michigan, but I am not as smart as Karl Rove. The Prussian military theorist, Clausewitz, cautioned military leaders to anticipate the independent will of the opposition as part of the inevitable fog and friction of warfare.
Karl Rove looks like he is trying to create a bit of friction for the Michigan Democratic Party way up north.
G. Tracy Mehan, III, served at EPA in the administrations of both Presidents Bush and in the cabinet of former Michigan Governor John Engler as director of the Office of the Great Lakes. He is a consultant in Arlington, VA, and an adjunct professor at George Mason University School of Law.

ROVE = LYING WAR MONGER

“Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after the process of grotesque self-deception.”
~Mark Twain

Bush adviser in U.P.
Rove says nation fighting two wars
By PETE FRECCHIO, Staff Writer
IRON MOUNTAIN — For the second time in three years a high-profile member of the Republican Party has traveled to Marquette to address a gathering of GOP supporters. Presidential adviser Karl Rove was the featured speaker Saturday evening at the Marquette County Republican Party’s annual Reagan Day Dinner.
The dinner was a GOP fund-raiser for Michigan’s 1st Congressional District.
During the 2004 presidential campaign, President George W. Bush spoke before thousands of U.P. citizens at a July 13 campaign rally at the Superior Dome.
“I was the one that recommended the president visit Marquette,” said Rove.
Rove said the president’s initial response was, “Marquette … where?”
“On his way back from Marquette, the president phoned me from Air Force One and told me he had attended a fantastic rally in Marquette. I knew then that I wanted to visit the Upper Peninsula,” Rove said.
A sold-out room welcomed the presidential adviser as well as a number of local and state GOP leaders to the Marquette Holiday Inn. Secret Service agents were on hand to watch over protesters gathered along the U.S. 41 corridor and to ensure Rove’s safety.

Newly-released government documents revealed that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales lied to Congress about his knowledge of FBI surveillance abuses in order to make a case for reauthorization of the Patriot Act in 2005.
Gonzales testified that he was unaware of civil liberties abuses relating to the use of National Security Letter (NSL) records demands, but recent reports about internal FBI documents indicate that he was, in fact, notified of NSL abuses.
The ACLU has challenged NSLs on behalf of letter recipients in two separate cases. In cases in Connecticut and New York, lower courts ruled that the NSL provision of the Patriot Act violates Americans’ constitutional rights. The provision permits the FBI to demand, without court approval, records of people who are not suspected of any wrongdoing. The law gives the FBI the authority to prohibit people who receive NSLs from disclosing even the fact that they received the FBI demands.
After the documents released to the Electronic Frontier Foundation revealed Gonzales’s misleading statements, ACLU client and FBI NSL recipient George Christian said: “I and my colleagues were fortunate enough to have the gag order against us lifted, but thousands more believed to have received national security letters are not so lucky, and must suffer the injustice in silence. It’s bad enough that these abuses occur, but salt is added to the wound when the top law enforcement agent in the country knows about the abuses, does nothing to correct them, and then plays ignorant when confronted with them.”

    MARQUETTE — The Marquette condo fraud case continued in Marquette County District Court Tuesday.

    Michael Gokey waived his preliminary examination, but the prelim continued for Joel Westrom.

    Originally five men were charged with using false pretenses to obtain money for a condo development at Hawks Ridge in Marquette. But charges were dropped against three of the men. Charges were dropped against Brian Swift, Chad LaVallie and Ryan Bruns.

    And after Michael Gokey waived his hearing, we only heard testimony against Joel Westrom Tuesday in court.
