JOHN F. BRADACH, SR. REMARKS TO PORTLAND CITY COUNCIL, APRIL 11, 2007


I AM JOHN F. BRADACH, SR.

I AM HERE, AS AN AMERICAN CITIZEN AND CITIZEN OF PORTLAND AND OREGON, TO SEEK YOUR ASSISTANCE, IN EFFECTING THE IMPEACHMENT OF THE PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

YOU EACH KNOW ABOUT MY NEPHEW MARINE CORPORAL TRAVIS BRADACH-NALL, WHO DIED AT KARBALA, IRAQ, ON JULY 2, 2003. I TOLD YOU SOMETHING OF MY PARENTS’ MARCH 13, 2003 DEATHS IN DESPAIR, A FEW DAYS BEFORE AMERICAN BOMBS BEGAN TO HIT BAGHDAD.

IMPEACHMENT IS NOT MY JUST MY PRIVATE PASSION. IT IS A SWORN DUTY, FOR EACH OF US.

FOR THE GOOD OF THE COUNTY, WE MUST NOT GIVE THESE PERPETRATORS A FREE PASS, ON THE MESS THEY HAVE DEALT.

I SENT EACH OF YOU MATERIALS ON MY MARCH 10, 2007 IMPEACHMENT RESOLUTION, WHICH PASSED THE OREGON STATE DEMOCRATIC PARTY’S CENTRAL COMMITTEE.

I ALSO SUBMITTED A COPY OF THE BILL, IN WASHINGTON’S LEGISLATURE, FOR A LAW INVOKING JEFFERSON’S MANUAL RULE 603, WHICH PERMITS A STATE LEGISLATURE TO INITIATE IMPEACHMENT.

I KNOW THIS CITY COUNCIL HEARD SUBSTANTIAL TESTIMONY ON AN IMPEACHMENT RESOLUTION BEGINNING LAST MAY. SUCH A RESOLUTION STILL AWAITS YOUR ACTION.

NOW, I ASK THAT THE PORTLAND CITY COUNCIL RESOLVE TO ENCOURAGE OREGON’S LEGISLATURE AND CONGRESS TO PROCEED WITH IMPEACHMENT.

THERE WILL BE AN IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDING IN CONGRESS. ITS VITALITY AND PROSPECTS FOR SUCCESS ARE ENHANCED BY EVERY CITIZEN, OFFICIAL AND ELECTED BODY THAT RECOGNIZES THE TIME, RIGHT AND JUSTICE OF IT.

ALL SIX OF US, THE FIVE OF YOU, AND I, HAVE SWORN OATHS TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

LET US DO OUR DUTY!

Thanks also for posting the text of the speech! I don't know what your feeling is about IndyMedia, but that is another place where people have posted City Council presentation materials.

I am very grateful to you for renewing our effort to have Portland City Council recognize its duty to support the US Constitution by standing up for the impeachment of this evil and corrupt administration. I cannot imagine the pain you feel each day from the loss of your son to Bush's folly, but I admire your courage and fortitude in fighting the good fight to bring down the Bush Administration.

I look forward to working with you!

Peace~~

Styve
