Bay Guardian lays out "The Case for Impeachment."

Our 40th Year

The San Francisco Bay Guardian this week outlines the case for impeaching President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.

The Guardian, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, is one of the first newspapers in the country to call for impeaching the president.

The article, written by City Editor Steven T. Jones, cites top Constitutional lawyers and scholars as well as political figures to make the case that Bush and Cheney have abused executive authority to the point where they may well have committed impeachable offenses.

The article chronicles a growing grassroots movement that has largely escaped the notice of the mainstream news media. Jones' piece and an accompanying note by Executive Editor Tim Redmond, chide the leadership of the Democratic Party for its failures to press the impeachment issue. READ THE REST

Republican Congressional Candidate Makes Opposition to Impeachment Election Issue

By David Swanson

Here's a campaign Email that was sent to supporters of Howard Kaloogian for Congress (and those who signed up on his Email list because they were attracted in the way one can be to something so disgusting that it's hard to turn away even while forced to squint and gasp for air). While a number of candidates have begun to make their pro-impeachment positions an issue in this year's congressional campaigns, this is the first I've seen make an issue of his opposition to impeachment of Bush/Cheney. He's running in a special election in April. No doubt, many will have occasion to take this up before November.

Top Ten Mistakes of the Bush Administration in Reacting to al-Qaeda

By Juan Cole, Informed Comment

Usamah Bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri murdered 3,000 Americans, and they both issued tapes in the past week, blustering and threatening us with more of the same. Most of us aren't wild about paying for the Bush administration with our taxes, but one thing we have a right to expect is that our government would protect us from mass murderers and would chase them down and arrest them. It has not done that. When asked why he hasn't caught Bin Laden, Bush replies, "Because he's hidin.'" Is Bush laughing at us?
