Censure! Impeach!

Congressman John Conyers has introduced three pieces of legislation. The purpose is to censure Bush and Cheney, and also to create a fact-finding committee.

An illegal war based on phony “intelligence” reports has killed tens of thousands of people and drained trillions out of our treasury. There’s been a massive domestic spying effort unequaled since Nixon’s presidency, and we know what happened to him. National security has been jeopardized; a CIA agent’s life was endangered.

Yup, a few things need to be cleared up. This committee could recommend impeachment if enough incriminating evidence is discovered.

And if his impeachment leads to a conviction, Bush will be removed from the White House. Some of his puppet masters might also be convicted and removed.

Some of the ringleaders could even be jailed for war crimes. Is this a great country or what?!?

::pause:: ::focus:: ::calm down:: OK, it’s gonna be an uphill battle. But this is a beginning. Like the ancient Chinese saying goes, “the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”

So far Conyers has 27 sponsors for this bill. Please click here to ask your Congressional Representative to sponsor Conyers’ bill. We’ve waited long enough. The cancer is spreading. We need to operate. Please act now. And thanks to Open Your Mind’s Eye for posting about this earlier.

Now, there’s a chance that our Republican Congress won’t have the spine or the integrity to impeach a corrupt rotting festering president. Thank God there’s a backup plan. This article provides a letter and zillions of e-mail addresses of state legislators and their staff members. Yes, impeachment CAN be initiated at the state level. Thanks to The Bulldog Manifesto for providing this invaluable information.

Please act on both of these proposals. Your country needs you.

TOM...Lewis H. Lapham, the editor of Harper's, has written an essay in the current issue of the magazine that centers on House Resolution 635, a report of 182 pages and 1,022 footnotes assembled by Rep. John Conyers Jr. and his staff. The report documents the criminal rush to war by the Bush Admin.

Lapham's editorial entitled "THE CASE FOR IMPEACHMENT - Why we can no longer afford George W. Bush" is well done and a must read for all who support impeachment.

Kitchen Window Woman: I heard about that story in Harper's. It's encouraging when a prestigious publication like that is calling for impeachment. I didn't realize that the House resolution had so many pages and footnotes. That's a lot of ammunition.

I did send the Bulldog's letter out when he first posted it and got a few encouraging replies from Vermont legislators. More people joining that effort could make a difference.

Thanks for the update Tom.

Ken: Yeah, I think all of these efforts should add up. State legislators, Conyers' legislation, more former Bush employees telling everything after they leave, more White House scandals coming home to roost -- I think it's gonna become a groundswell. For the sake of our country, I hope so.

I intend to ask my rep Susan Davis her position on this when she has a town meeting next month.
We'll see what she says.

Mike V.: Great, that's the way to do it. Put the heat on. If enough people act, there'll be a groundswell that even Rove and Bush won't be able to counter.
