Make impeachment happen!



Since we told you Tuesday night about Congressman Conyers’ new bills to hold Bush and Cheney accountable for their war lies, 26,000 people have visited the action alert page, and 17,000 have Emailed their Congress Members. You can add to those numbers here.

Already there are seven cosponsors of a bill to create an investigation and make recommendations on impeachment, four cosponsors on a bill to censure Bush, and five cosponsors on a bill to censure Cheney.

This work, combined with our polling on impeachment, and the news that Bush authorized illegal spying on Americans, has pushed impeachment into the media.

For many months the media wouldn’t cover and Congress wouldn’t talk about the public’s demand for impeachment of Bush and Cheney because the pollsters wouldn’t poll on it, and the pollsters wouldn’t poll on it because it wasn’t in the media and wasn’t in Congress. Remember Gallup’s excuse for not polling?

The week before Christmas, things changed. Look at the spike in instances of the I word in recent media punditry.

And Congress Members and Senators are talking about impeachment. Rep. John Lewis says he favors it. Rep. John Conyers has introduced a bill to create an investigation into grounds for it, and seven other Congress Members have immediately signed on. Senator Barbara Boxer announced that she is asking legal scholars for advice on it. Senator Kerry said there are grounds for impeachment; then he flip-flopped — but it wouldn’t be Kerry without that.

  1. I only have one problem with impeachment – look at the line of succession:
    The Vice President Richard Cheney
    Speaker of the House John Dennis Hastert
    President pro tempore of the Senate Ted Stevens
    Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice
    Secretary of the Treasury John Snow
    Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld
    Attorney General Alberto Gonzales
    Secretary of the Interior Gale A. Norton
    Secretary of Agriculture Mike Johanns
    Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez
    Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao
    Secretary of Health and Human Services Mike Leavitt
    Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Alphonso Jackson
    Secretary of Transportation Norman Yoshio Mineta
    Secretary of Energy Samuel Bodman
    Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings
    Secretary of Veterans Affairs Jim Nicholson
    Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff

  2. Ugh…yes, sadly, tis correct. I mean, it’s all too obvious that the Establishment entire had strategically agreed on the course America would take come 2000. Ever read the book “Sorrows of Empire”? They all knew what was going to happen because they planned and staged the whole “terrorism” ruse as needed justification to bolster brainwashed America into following their greed impulse over the cliff and into oblivion.

    So, no, impeachment will NEVER occur. It cannot and will not be ‘allowed,’ that is, law and constitution will continue to be ignored.
