The Palfrey-Cheney Connection
Palfrey faced up to 55 years in prison for money-laundering, sentencing scheduled for July 24. Her defense attorney, Preston Burton, said she planned to appeal. Why would she kill herself with an appeal pending? She has an aged mother with a heart condition; why would she she choose to hang herself with the likelihood her ailing mom would find her like that? Palfrey was a fighter- again, why would she give up with her appeal pending?

Palfrey believed her life could be in danger, and stated that it would not be suicide if she were found dead; she said so on a radio program along with implicating that the VP himself, and other extremely powerful, high-profile men in Washington were clients. LISTEN: http://freepress.org/radio/theprogressiverevolution/the...

Is it possible that facing of a 55-year sentence, Ms. Palfrey was going to do some talking, in hopes of a reduced sentence? Were some persons concerned that an angry or vindictive Palfrey might write tell-all?




*The investigative reporter is not supposed to be posted at DU (considered dubious source) so name "redacted" (***). Mods, please allow; the only way for any of this to get a hearing and Ms. Palfrey to get justice is not to bury it Something is seriously fishy here.

D.C. Madame Predicted Being Suicided

"If taken into custody, my physical safety and most probably my very life would be jeopardized," she wrote. "Rape, beating, maiming, disfigurement and more than likely murder disguised in the form of just another jailhouse accident or suicide would await me."

May 8, 2007 -- Cheney on DC Madam's list. Yesterday, *** reported on the DC Madam Deborah Jeane Palfrey's list: "*** has been informed that the CEO of a major corporation is a former CEO but, nonetheless, the aforementioned extremely high-level official of the Bush administration. The individual, who is definitely "newsworthy," reportedly engaged the services of Palfrey's escort firm while he was the CEO and maintained a residence off Chain Bridge Road in the Ballantrae neighborhood in McLean, Virginia, a few blocks from the headquarters of the CIA."

Cheney "X'd" off the DC Madam's list by ABC/Disney.

*** has confirmed with extremely knowledgeable CIA and Pentagon sources that the former CEO who is on Deborah Jeane Palfrey's list is Vice President Dick Cheney. Cheney was CEO of Halliburton during the time of his liaisons with the Pamela Martin & Associates escort firm. Palfrey's phone invoices extend back to 1996 and include calls to and from Cheney. Ironically, in 2000 Cheney was appointed by Bush to head his Vice President selection committee, a task that enabled Cheney to gather detailed personal files on a number of potential candidates, including Bill Frist, George Pataki, John Danforth, Fred Thompson, Chuck Hagel, John Kasich, Chris Cox, Frank Keating, Tom Ridge, Colin Powell, and Jim Gilmore, before he selected himself as the vice presidential candidate.

The White House saw to it that ABC/Disney killed the DC Madam's story before yet another scandal swamped the Bush administration. Cheney is departing Washington today for a trip to the Middle East, where he will visit the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, and the USS John C. Stennis in the Gulf.

May 24, 2007-- Well, lookie, lookie, Roll Call, Politico and Wonkette all served up items yesterday that mentioned the possibility that Dick Cheney used the services of Deborah Jeane Palfreys escort service in the 1990s. But little credit was given to ***, the investigative reporter who first blew the lid off the story (which weve followed in some, um, interesting dominatrix-inspired directions). Weve already detailed how the mainstream media has often stolen his goods. Today, we catch up with him on his scoop.

*** tells Big Head DC that he first started hearing over two weeks ago that Dick Cheney might be involved. His first source had has strong ties to the Democratic party; hes since had confirmation from individuals associated with the CIA and with the Pentagon. He says that all his sources are trustworthy and inside the game.

If Dick Cheney thought there would never be blow back from his attempt to discredit the CIA, he was very wrong. according to the reporter. He should have remembered that when he lived in Ballantrae in McLean in the 1990s, and was a neighbor of the CIA, some of his activities may have come to the attention of the agency and its employees, especially since he was a former Defense Secretary and President and CEO of a major oil services company.

***, you can bet, will continue to follow this developing story.

Wednesday June 27, 2007-Dearest Readers, what an interesting interview with Ms Deborah Jeane Palfrey. Forgive the non-edited version, we need Ray-the-tech-guy to help. Prissy is all thumbs with audio editing and Betty is too.

<snip>

Ms. Palfrey also explains why she thinks ABC dropped the ball and canceled the story. There are the phone numbers of approximately 10,000 clients on "the list".

Some are very powerful men, obviously. Lot's of them. Like maybe 100 of the top level military and senior government officials in this country-many currently holding top level security clearances.

The problem is not so much buying sexual fantasy talk, the problem is men who indulge in this sort of paid play are very susceptible to blackmail. Especially the ones spouting to the world about their own "family values."

<snip>

*** was right-listen to Ms. Palfrey and hear for yourself that Vice President DICK CHENEY is likely on the list...how recently, you ask?

Well, Prissy cannot give you times and dates-not yet anyway, but know this. The only phone records analyzed so far are from 2002-2006-*** claim Dicks visits happened in the 1990's. If you want to hear some other potential list makers, listen to the last five minutes of the show on the podcast below: http://freepress.org/radio/theprogressiverevolution/the...

21. I beg your pardon? The mother is 76. Plenty of DUers are that old or older.
I have colleagues who are still working full-time in their 70s. How dare you suggest that a person is senile just because they are in their 70s?

23. I think you take this too seriously
Really, this is just a gossip thread with speculation. I only had noted she died at her mother's house, and it seemed to me if this was murder, then the people who did it might have not cared about the mother for some reason. Obviously a witness is a bad thing to have around. I know there are people who can live to 100s and still be of clear mind.

And as I remember back, you were the person talking on one thread about manners and handshakes regarding Hillary and Obama, etc. And you knew the exact protocol. Could it be you are hung up on all the rules, etc, to a ridiculous extent.

2. I wonder in what state of health the actual prostitutes are who serviced Dick.
Edited on Thu May-01-08 07:42 PM by aint_no_life_nowhere
If this story is true, and if I were the young ladies who could eye-ball Cheney as witnesses to the deeds, I'd be taking the next flight out to a remote part of the world and changing my identity. I wonder if any of Palfrey's ladies of the night are mysteriously missing.

7. there is an entry on the reporter's site about other the ladies involved
I saw refered to, but the reporter's site is accessable for a subscription free- back when all of this was published, the site was free and open to all. I would love to know about this myself.

4. Wouldn't old "shooter"
be taking a major risk, given that his worn out "ticker" could stop and he would be literally caught with his pants down? Or could he have made arrangements in that event?

He chose to retire. He could have stayed and fought.

9. The long march of Dick Cheney
The long march of Dick Cheney

The Raw Story | 'DC madam' lawyer: Cheney isn't not on phone records
"This is a draft-dodging half-human war criminal with a pregnant lesbian daughter who tells senators to fuck themselves and shoots his own friends in the face. Ordering an outcall hooker is positively innocent compared to the well-known things Cheney does every day."

The Raw Story | 'Daily Show' lambastes 'Highlander' Cheney's 'secret secrets'
"Dick Cheney exists neither in the executive branch nor the legislative, yet simultaneously in both," 'Daily Show' correspondent John Oliver adds. "He is neither man nor beast, yet has elements of the twain. He is at once everything and nothing, substance without form, shape without motion, time without reason... he is the Highlander."

11. I think the lack of interest in the names on the "list" gives us a big clue as to

what's really going on with corporate-media vs big stories . . . !!!


10,000 clients on "the list".

Some are very powerful men, obviously. Lot's of them. Like maybe 100 of the top level military and senior government officials in this country-many currently holding top level security clearances.


10,000 clients on the list --- higher ups in government/military and no one interested . . .
hmmmm......

Granted I'd like to see Cheney get caught in this scandal ---

However, what is this really about re their use of prostitutes?

Is it disdain for women?
Is it feigned machoism?
What is it?
Status symbol?
Any males want to enlighten on this subject?

16. Was she ever found?
I don't recall her ever being found.

Who was the one politician she was sleeping with? Man, it was such huge news there for a while, then it went totally silent. I seem to recall some major news event took its place, but for the life of me I can't remember what it was.

Senility at age 41????

20. The politician was a DINO named Gary Condit,
whom the press kept portraying as a "liberal" while the story was raging.

22. That's it!
Thanks. And that WAS 9/11 that knocked it off the front page. I remember thinking -- well, that's the last we'll see of Chandra Levy (no pun intended).

I had honestly forgotten they even found her.

19. Has anyone heard from Brian Ross on this. He's the one who
supposedly "broke the story". Has he, or ABC/Disney, said anything at all concerning the alleged suicide of Jeane Palfrey?
