The blogs are alive with the sound of Impeachment!

And we can thank one
man: Representative Dennis Kucinich, who this time brought 35 Articles of Impeachment against President George
W Bush in the Congress on Monday night. Click the link and scroll down past
a number of relevant articles to a video of Dennis reading them and a �packet
of printable offenses.�
All I can say is
�Kucinich for President� -- if not as a Democrat then what about as an
Independent, a people�s candidate. This is the guy with the real stuff, the
heart, brains, and soul to lead. Of course, Kucinich�s articles include Bush
willfully falsifying intelligence to start the illegal Iraq war.
Of course, as with
his first round of impeachment proceedings against Cheney last November, which
were stalled to death in committee, the Democrats again oppose Kucinich�s
ballsy effort. Their plan is to scuttle the resolution by passing it on to the
Judiciary Committee where they figure it�ll die a nice soundless death.
In fact, House
Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer said yesterday that getting involved in a deep
debate over impeaching Bush in the waning days of his administration �is not a
productive use of the House�s time.� Kiss my Timex, Steny.
In the time left,
Loose Canon Bush can start World War III by bombing Iran and canceling the
election with his Emergency Powers Act -- and be frigging president for life.
He is presently lobbying to do just that as the BBC reports in Bush warns Iran of �all
options�. The article tells us Bush is visiting world leaders and
continuing to lie about Iran. Check out the article for details.
In fact, Kucinich
nailed Bush extensively on that point, listing how Bush and Cheney are
deliberately contradicting the CIA�s intelligence that Iran is not producing
nuclear offensive weapons (or, by the way that Israel has 200 nuclear
warheads). The point is Iran is Iraq, d�j� vu all over again as Yogi Berra would say. And
the Democratic lames are sitting on their butts as usual, doing nothing but
saying what can�t be done, "not enough time.� They�re curiously
dysfunctional whereas Bush is perversely proactive. Work on that one.
Remember, this is the
Bush gang that brought us the Inside Job of 9/11. Listen to
Professor David Ray Griffin, one of the leading experts on what happened,
speak of the need to make Bush and company responsible -- impeachable -- for
this heinous crime.
Again, Kucinich is
the only politician in America who has had the guts to come forth and serve an
impeachment notice to the top two culprits in the White House. What�s that
worth to you, America, an arm and a leg of a son or daughter in Iraq or
Afghanistan, or Iran? The end to the brutal violence our country is coming to
stand for? The squandering of our treasury on war hardware, kickbacks to
Halliburton contractors, roided Blackwater paramilitaries, poorly armored
vehicles that kill our soldiers?
Is it like this story
from the NY Times, Bearing
Witness to the Fallen and the Grieving, that will bring tears to your eyes
at the callous treatment of military dead and their families? How coffins with
US dead in them are put in cardboard containers to hide what they are; how they
are fork-lifted into commercial airliner holds, de-cardboard-ed, and draped
with flags, fork-lifted through airport backdoors and jettisoned onto carousels
where the families will meet them and have to haul them away? Or someone will
get to watch one just circle and circle and circle, into eternity?
That�s why the blogs
are alive with the sound of Impeachment. The notices are rolling into my
computer faster than I can open them, sign them and send them out to friends or
family. That�s called activism, pushing back against this destructive force
called Bush, the force that is destroying our economy with war expenditures,
tax cuts to the rich, the housing bubble bust, deepening debt, soaring gas
prices, massive monthly losses of jobs, Medicare and Medicaid cuts.
He and his Wall
Street Hedge Fund friends are looting America every which way they can. And
Bush Treasury Secretary Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke are
giving them all the help they need. We�re going broke, folks, broke. They can�t
even pay doctors their frigging Medicare/Medicaid bills. That�s why they
constantly hassle the medical profession with endless forms, delays, denials,
resubmissions, every imaginable stalling tactic.
Yet Steny thinks
putting Bush on notice right now �is not a productive use of the House�s time.�
Well, what is, turkey, borrowing from China to give us that bribe tax rebate to
look the other way as the Titanic sinks? Or watching Bush slice off pieces from
veterans' benefits, or hearing that Rumsfeld
was taking bribes on sub-standard trailers in Iraq, and threatening to
torture the CIA woman he wanted to hire to monitor corruption -- that is if she
found any, i.e., his.
Is this the kind of
dreck we should keep putting up with, Unemployment
Rate Hits 5.5%; Payrolls Shrink for Fifth Month [New York Times]? Or even a
US plot to
nail Iran backfires. This was a scam that the Asia Times reported and the
Western press blacked out: �The George W Bush administration's plan to create a
new crescendo of accusations against Iran for allegedly smuggling arms to Shi'ite
militias in Iraq has encountered not just one but two setbacks.
�The government of
Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki refused to endorse US charges of Iranian
involvement in arms smuggling to Shi'ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr's Mahdi Army,
and a plan to show off a huge collection of Iranian arms captured in and around
the central city of Karbala had to be called off after it was discovered that
none of the arms was of Iranian origin.� Imagine that.
Read the story to
believe it. It�ll make your eyes pop at how malicious and equally stupid these
White House white men and Pentagon fools are. And in the middle of all this, we
don�t have time to impeach this pineapple Bush, this walking grenade that could
pull the pin on us at any time?
There is nothing more
important in my mind timewise than taking the time to evict Bush from office,
like now. So when that petition comes to you, sign it. Send Dennis a
contribution. Send him to the White House. Let�s give Obama some incentive to
stop acting like he already works for Israel and its favorite US lobby, AIPAC,
by pinning their flag to his lapel.
Even Fox�s pro-Israel
New York Post nailed him on that: OYBAMA!
�PIN� UP DEM WOOS JEWS. Where did you go, brother? We thought you were
going to take it to the man. Change, change, change, baby; that�s what it�s
supposed to be all about.
All that jive aside,
think Dennis. He�s back. He�s bad. And he�s beautiful. And he�s out there
stirring up a ruckus, which is what it will take to unseat these beasties.
Dumb as McCain is,
they won�t let Johnny boy self-destruct like he almost did in the Navy at least
three times, blowing up a couple of expensive airplanes, setting the USS
Forestal afire and helping to kill many sailors in the process. This is not the
dude you want running the country, trust me. At the very least, Dennis will
keep Obama, Hillary, Nancy, Harry, and the gang honest -- that is, as honest as
they can be. And that ain�t a whole lot. Oh no, Joe.
