Daschle’s hypocrisy on Mad Cow
Tom Daschle’s typical madness is obvious regarding his position regarding Canada’s Mad Cow issue verses America’s current situation.

In promoting Country of Origin Labeling he said this about Canada’s Mad Cow:

Daschle said the USDA should take a measured approach to lifting the moratorium on Canadian beef.
He also said country of origin labeling ŒŒwill serve as another important tool to add to our country's comprehensive food safety regime.''
Here is his comment regarding the Mad Cow in Washington state:

WASHINGTON, Dec. 24 (UPI) -- Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle, D-S.D., Wednesday called the risk to human health in the United States from mad cow disease extremely low.
"U.S. farmers and ranchers produce the highest quality beef in the safest system in the world," Daschle said.
His comments follow the Agriculture Department's disclosure that the nation's first case of mad cow disease appears to have surfaced on a Washington state farm.
"The Secretary of Agriculture should continue to handle this isolated, presumptive-positive case in a thoughtful, professional and science-based manner," Daschle said. "All steps must be taken to protect the quality and consumer confidence in U.S. beef."
He suggested that Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman consult with international trading partners to regain early access to worldwide markets.

Tom Daschle among the Bilderbergers
According to a 1999 WorldNetDaily report, Tom Daschle was among the guest list to the 1999 Bilderberg meeting that was held in Portugal.

What the heck is Bilderberg? After doing a Google search, I found this:

Lord Rothschild and Laurance Rockefeller handpicked 100 of the world's elite, and they have a heavy cross membership with the Council on Foreign Relations (which they control), the English Speaking Union, the Pilgrims Society, the Round Table, and the Trilateral Commission. Their purpose was to regionalize Europe, according to Giovanni Agnelli, the head of Fiat, who said: "European integration is our goal and where the politicians have failed, we industrialists hope to succeed." In Alden Hatch's biography of Bernhard, he stated that the Bilderberg Group gave birth to the European Community (now the European Union). Their ultimate goal is to have a one-world government.

Their first meeting was held at the Hotel de Bilderberg (hence the name of the group, even though they have referred to themselves as "The Alliance") in Oosterbeek, Holland, from May 29-31, in 1954. C. D. Jackson (Vice President of Time magazine, delegate to the United Nations, Special Assistant to the President, and later publisher of Life magazine), spokesman for the American delegation, led by David Rockefeller, promised those present: "Whether (Sen. Joseph McCarthy dies by an assassin's bullet, or is eliminated in the normal American way of getting rid of boils on the body politic, I prophecy that by the time we hold our next meeting, he will be gone from the American scene." McCarthy was the crusading Senator who revealed that communists had infiltrated high level posts within the U.S. Government. He didn't die until 1957.

Looks like more research is needed on this.

Linda Daschle
I am not the only one writing letters to South Dakota papers regarding the unethical lobbying of Senator Tom Daschle's wife Linda. Mark D. Walker has this letter in today's Aberdeen paper:

To the editor - Linda Daschle is a highly compensated Washington Insider lobbyist. She pursues her clients objectives in the House of Representatives. She does speak to her husband on a daily basis.

It is interesting to note that three of her clients - Level 3 Communications (airport bomb/baggage scanners), Loral Space and Communications (selling satellite/missile technology to Red China impacting our national security), and the Boeing Company (serious ethical questions concerning the KC767 Tanker program and the DOD - key management personnel fired and the contract placed in abeyance by the DOD Secretary Rumsfeld) have been or are currently embroiled in problems with the federal government. The 767 airframe is built at the Everett, Wash., commercial facility.

Judicial Watch has filed Freedom of Information Act requests with the FAA to uncover Linda Daschle's role in the selection of the faulty Level-3 bomb detecting equipment prior to Sept. 11, 2001 and to uncover Daschle's role as well. Remember, at that time Daschle was Senate Majority Leader with much influence.

If you add her giant pharmaceutical client, Schering-Plough, and the pharmaceutical industry's illegal sharp marketing practice of off-labeling currently under close scrutiny by the FDA, it is apparent to the objective observer that serious conflict of interest issues concerning the Daschle couple exist. Not skepticism, it's public record.

If the Daschle defenders want to challenge the lobbyist ethics of key Republican (Lott, Hastert, Card) relatives, please present your public record data to support your claims.
