Can You Expose the Cover-up of the Cover-up?
By Jim Babka

Media Alert: Downsize DC President Jim Babka will be on WBCR 1470 AM in Knoxville, Tennessee today (Thursday) during the 4 o'clock hour, Eastern time. It's unclear to us whether you can listen online, but the station's website is

Congressional leaders want to engage in a double cover-up, by hiding a bill designed to suppress evidence in a piece of completely unrelated legislation.

We must . . .

* Expose these cover-ups by letting Congress know that we know what they're doing
* Prevent this kind of thing from happening in the future by compelling Congress to introduce and pass the "One Subject at a Time Act"

Please send Congress a letter for this purpose.

You can use my letter to Congress as a model for you own . . .

There appears to be photographic evidence that government officials have committed the crime of abusing prisoners held in their custody. This evidence should be exposed in a court of law, but instead . . .

The Graham-Lieberman bill (H.R. 2892) would suppress the evidence. This is a cover-up -- a crime on top of a crime. But it gets worse . . .

The Graham-Lieberman cover-up bill lacks the votes to pass, so Congressional leaders are hiding it in an appropriations bill for the Homeland Security Department. This amounts to a cover-up of a cover-up.

The Graham-Lieberman evidence suppression bill isn't an appropriation for Homeland Security, and the criminal actions it seeks to hide were committed by people in the Defense Department, not the Department of Homeland Security.

You are supposed to represent me. You take actions in my name. Please do not participate in these cover-ups. Do not vote for the Homeland Security appropriations bill if it contains the completely unrelated Graham-Lieberman cover-up bill.

I'll be watching to see what you do. In the long run . . .

Please show me that you are a responsible representative by introducing's "One Subject at a Time Act." Each bill you vote on should only be about one subject only. For instance, if you approve of something like the Graham-Lieberman cover-up bill then you should have the courage to vote for it as a stand-alone measure.
