Washington DC - (ReUterus & Ass Mess): Suborning witnesses with Presidential executive priviledge orders has long been a GOP favortie technique on Capitol Hill when the going gets rough.
And nothing could be rougher right now for George W Bush as his house of cards nears collapse.
Bush is expected to invoke gagging orders to add Karl Rove and J Scott Jennings to swell the Omerta ranks protecting his sacking of eight federal prosecutors.
The ploy has worked wonders abroad already.
In the UK he successfully shut down the murder investigation into the 'suicide' of UN weapons inspector David Kelly by paying off Lord Hutton for a five star whitewash.
Leaning on British Members of Parliament ensured the enquiry into the WMD fantasy exonerated everybody including his uterine brother the poodle Blair.
Smashing the UK Serious Fraud Office's probe into the BAE slush fund that edoshed up ex-Saudi ambassador to the USA Prince Bandar was high up among his greatest suborning achievements.
And the icing on the cake came with the Crown Prosecution Service being perverted to changed the course of justice by finding everybody innocent in the cash-for-peerages enquiry.
Such successful foreign policy coups have made the GOP beam with pride as their top rent boy continues to ride high in the White House revelling in his psychosis.
But back home things are looking far from rosy.
In Alaska the Feds are smashing their way through the permafrost that has protected the Corrupt Bastards Club for over two decades.
In Texas arraignments are being prepared to force disgraced former BP CEO Lord Browne to face corporate manslaughter charges for the Texas City fiascos.
And in DC itself, Psecial Prosecutor Patrick FitzGerald remains enigmatic and sphinx-like, waiting to pounce on the top of the shit heap that is the White House in a series of corruption probes that started with the outing of ex-CIA agent Valerie Plame.
Fitzie has played a masterclass in Presidential strip poker, unravelling the Emperor's New Clothes layer by layer until all that's left are the GOP's desperate last bluffs about a massive corruption scandal in the Justice department, flanked by Attorney general Alberto Gonzales.
Diplomatic sources close to NATO military intelligence have confirmed today that what the public is seeing in both the US and the UK are the last desperate death throes of a suicide pact which will end "within the next two weeks or so".
And the pivotal evidence to nail these scumbags?
Step forward the stalwarts at the City of London police force whose evidence about the 1982 murder of God's Banker Roberto Calvi provides the first knockout punch out of a well orchestrated one thousand to follow.
Karl Rove is an asshole.
