Under cover of darkness, an anonymous White House official just declared war on the New York Times - as well as the First Amendment.
The UK government has been quick to deny that we practice, or tolerate the practice of Torture. So it is perhaps not suprising that they are determined that you should not see the following documents:
We The People remind Congress that they too took an oath to defend the Constitution, from both enemies foreign and domestic. 1. Call or Fax Congress and let them know, impeachment or else. 2. Organize State of the Union MOSH II protest, gather in DC to put the pressure on Congress the week before the SOTU. 3. Jan 31st, surround the capitol building, project truth videos to the riot cops, remind them that they too took an oath to defend the Constitution.

Where: National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA)

Let us impeach George Bush, and let it begin with me,
Let us impeach George Bush, and don't forget Dick Cheney.
With George Bush in prison, safer we will be,
Let's lock up big brother, and have some privacy.
Read the following letter to the editor from the Philadelphia Daily News, and then go here to write your own to your own local paper.
After considering his latest TV performance in defending his latest scandal, I write today to sound the alarm that our President is officially out of control. Though I had not considered it a serious possibility, after reflecting on it I agree with those who say it is time to get rolling with our impeachment option.
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.
PeaceAction Montgomery will be working to end the war in Iraq by gathering in Washington, DC, and placing toy soldiers labeled "Bring Me Home" around each of the 56 Christmas trees on the Ellipse in front of the White House. Please join us in spreading the message of what the U.S. must do. The trees are part of the season's message of Peace on Earth. Each state and territory is sending its sons and daughters to fight in a war without reason or end. This must end. Let's place our wishes to bring these soldiers to safety at the foot of each tree and remind Americans that it's time to bring the soldiers home.
Here's an idea and a graphic from Daniel I. Fearn: Drive with your headlights on if you favor impeachment.
January 7 National Day of Town Hall Forums on Ending the War
Organize public meetings or smaller gatherings on Saturday, January 7, on the topic of ending the war!
Central Florida Vets for Peace, Code Pink, and Jewish War Vets deliver 924 "Bring the Troops Home - Out in '06" signatures to Republican Congressman
Tuesday January 31 - Drown Out Bush's Lies during the State of the Union
Saturday, February 4 - Protest at the Seat of Government! BUSH STEP DOWN
It's going to take an organized movement of millions to Drive OUT the Bush Regime: The LA Times reported last month that Bush's advisors hope his speech will lead the populace to "turn the page" on the debacle of the past few months, as crime after crime has been exposed and Bush's poll numbers fell. They're hoping to regroup and "reposition" Bush, to focus people on going forward united with his program. There is not doubt that he will push on "to radically remake society, very quickly, in a faxcist way, and for generations to come", as our Call says.
Can you please help spread this meme?
"Project for a New American Century" is the think tank that created US government neocons. Get people Googling PNAC, and they will find out that this neocon agenda is hardly what they voted for, indeed is dangerous to American life and to the world. Write it, say it - and now WEAR this meme.
Prices are marked very low; most profits will go to Crawford Peace House, Texas.
Protesters outside the White House fence last night made enough noise to disrupt the network anchors' parroting of Bush's talking points. Let's remember this and do it every time!
CHRISTIAN PEACEMAKER TEAM IN IRAQ CALLS PRESIDENT BUSH TO WITHDRAW TROOPS, END HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES
White House numbers:
From A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition Steering Committee
Ten weeks after the September 24 demonstration brought more than 300,000 people to Washington DC in a massive show of strength by a united antiwar movement, the leadership of the United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ) has publicly announced its unilateral intention to effect a long-term split in the antiwar movement. This is the second time in seven months that UFPJ has publicly proclaimed its intention to split the movement, coupled with a false and ugly attack on the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition. In May 2005, they announced that they would hold a second and separate demonstration in Washington DC on September 24 rather than work in a united front with A.N.S.W.E.R.. Fortunately, the progressive movement overcame that splitting effort, which would have seriously weakened the movement at a critical moment.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - U.S. Vice-President Dick Cheney visited Iraq on Sunday for the first time since the 2003 invasion, as hardline leaders from both sides of the country's sectarian divide renewed calls for American troops to go home.

I have spent a great deal of time ruminating over the devastation of Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as other areas of the world we have plundered into and where we have left our remnants of death scattered about. I watch and listen to the various groups activating antiwar rallies to try and end the devastation, and while they are good and well meaning, I also believe personally that the era of such protests is now ending. It is time to be newly creative once again but in ways that allow us to speak out FOR something, not AGAINST it. While being against something expresses how we feel, it still carries a negative edge. I think now more than ever, this country is craving positive feelings, something good to be speaking out FOR! In a time when everything in the world seems so bleak, we need our hopes raised by having a cause to feel positive about. I would like to share my idea with you about how to do this.
