    Karl Rove
    Former Chief Advisor to the White House

    In August 2007, Karl Rove announced that he would resign from
    one of the most powerful positions in the free world as top
    political strategist to the White House, to spend more time with
    his family. Some critics of Rove, however, suggest that he is
    trying to avoid investigation into, among others, his role as  
    producer and executive director of the politicizing of the
    Department of Justice. One of those cases was the Don
    Siegelman case, an apparently Rove-directed case, that is now
    under the microscope of the judiciary committee.[1]

    “Mr. Rove's resignation is not a retirement,” the Washington
    Times, a right-of-center newspaper stated. “It's just another
    opportunity for him to create that lasting Republican majority
    he envisioned years ago and to spend his waking days doing
    what he so enjoys — beating Democrats in the alleys and
    gutters. ”[4]

    Rove's long term goal as architect of the Bush
    administration was to establish a single-party unitary
    executive branch with a supportive judiciary, a weak
    legislature and a fearful press. Corporate sponsors of
    this strategy, such as tobacco, energy, telecom, and
    pharmaceutical companies, were rewarded with hands-off
    government, deregulated oversight, stringent limits on
    class-action damages, and the stacking of high courts
    with pro-business/anti-consumer Justices.[3]

    Rove's reputation was established in the close elections, and
    few would be as close as the 2000 presidential race from which  
    George W. Bush emerged victorious by a margin of 537 votes in
    Florida—enough to win the presidency, and to promote his chief
    strategist, Karl Rove, to the status of legend. The methods used
    by this tactical genius would have easily been the yardstick of
    the industry, even if he never resorted to treachery. But he does.
    [1]

    Rove owed his reputation to two primarily things: direct-mail
    marketing and an ability to get government prosecutors to go
    after the officeholder his client wanted to beat. [2]
    As the strategies used by Karl Rove have become more and
    more evident, it appears that he sees the institutions of
    government as primarily instruments of political power. He has
    always used government to expand a power base and punish
    enemies: evidence the various US attorney replacements, the
    recent testimony of the former Surgeon General, and many
    other incidents to find abundant proof of this practice.

    But what interest would Karl Rove have in Alabama? William J.
    Canary is one of the biggest reasons that Rove is interested in
    Alabama. Rove and Canary are old pals from Canary’s days at
    the White House during the administration of George H.W. Bush.
    They also worked closely in 1994 when the Alabama BCA
    (Business Council of Alabama) headed by Bill Canary, brought
    Karl Rove from Texas to help elect Republican candidates to the
    traditionally Democrat-held state Supreme Court in Alabama.
    The BCA believed that because Rove had successfully faced
    precisely this scenario in Texas several years before, and had
    managed to turn an all-Democratic Texas court all Republican,
    that he could do it for Alabama as well.[1]

    On June 1, 2007 an affidavit by a concerned lifetime republican
    and Riley campaign worker was made public. Among other
    revelations about the inner workings of the Riley campaign her
    affidavit fingers the White House operator who called the shots
    in the  prosecution of Governor Siegelman, Karl Rove.

Karl Rove built (in 2004) an upscale
million-dollar beach house in  
Rosemary Beach which is located
in the FloraBama panhandle. The
Rosemary Beach Development,
which caters to elites from
Alabama, Georgia & Florida, is
located on Highway A-30, between
Destin and Panama City, in Walton
Co. Florida.
Rosemary Beach, FLA

....Whatever the next chapter of Rove's life has in store, some of
the action will probably take place in Rosemary Beach, Florida,
where he bought land in 2002.

Although the home appears to have been initially purchased as
vacation property, Rove seems to be spending an increasing
amount of time there...

Karl Rove from Wikipedia:

Karl Christian Rove (born December 25, 1950) was Deputy Chief of
Staff to President George W. Bush until his resignation on 31 August
2007. Since leaving the White House, Rove has worked as a political
analyst and contributor for Fox News, Newsweek, and the Wall Street
Journal.

For most of his career prior to his employment at the White House, Rove
was a political consultant almost exclusively for Republican candidates.
Rove's election campaign clients have included George W. Bush (2000
and 2004 presidential elections, 1994 and 1998 Texas gubernatorial
elections), Senator John Ashcroft (1994 U.S. Senate election), and Bill
Clements (1986 Texas gubernatorial election).

Rove was born the second of three children in Denver, Colorado, and
later raised in Sparks, Nevada. His biological father was not married to
his mother. His mother's husband, Louis Claude Rove Jr., whom Rove
knew as his father, was a geologist, and his mother, Reba Wood, was a
gift shop manager.

His family moved to Salt Lake City in 1965 when Rove was entering high
school. While at Olympus High School, he was elected student council
president his junior and senior years. He became skilled in debate.

"The Political Prosecutions of Karl Rove"
Video Produced by John McTiernan

Although john McTiernan is a master of suspense and horror (he
directed Predator and Die Hard), this 52-minute film is certainly the
scariest he's ever made, since its story is no fiction and concerns a
massive strike against the rule of law, and democratic government,
right here in the USA. This documentary lays it out as clear as day:

Karl Rove's careful orchestration of at least six hundred partisan
prosecutions by the Department of Justice, so as to give the GOP a big
leg up on this or that Election Day.























"The Political Prosecutions of Karl Rove" highlights only a very small
number of many cases across the country where tactics used by the
DoJ are questionable, if not illegal.

It is necessary to examine not only the methods...but the motives.
