The Impeachment Moment

We've reached the impeachment moment for Vice President Dick Cheney. We are now at what Rev. Lennox Yearwood calls the lunch counter moment in the impeachment movement. We've pushed the cosponsor list for H. Res. 333 up to 14. Chairman John Conyers says that if we get 3 more he'll begin the impeachment proceedings. And many Congress Members must be recognizing that there is no other path available. Cheney and Bush have repeatedly refused to comply with subpoenas, ordered former staffers not to comply with subpoenas, and announced that the Justice Department will not enforce contempt citations from Congress. When a special prosecutor attempted to hold this administration accountable, Cheney's chief of staff obstructed justice, and Cheney persuaded Bush to commute his sentence. There is no course left for Congress but impeachment.

On Monday, July 23rd, the fifth anniversary of the meeting that produced the Downing Street Minutes, Cindy Sheehan, Ray McGovern, Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Ann Wright, Debra Sweet, Dave Lindorff, David Swanson, Jodie Evans, Medea Benjamin, Kevin Zeese, and Tina Richards will lead a march to Chairman Conyers office and not leave until he agrees to begin impeachment proceedings. If you cannot be there, you can take two minutes on Monday and do two things: phone Chairman Conyers at 202-225-5126 and ask him to start the impeachment of Dick Cheney; and phone your own Congress Member at 202-224-3121 and ask them to immediately call Conyers' office to express their support for impeachment. Your Congress Member might be one of the three needed, not just to keep impeachment activists out of jail but to keep this nation from devolving into dictatorship.

Ironic, isn't it , how things come full circle? Rosa Parks worked in US Representative John Conyers congressional office in Detroit until she retired:


My Letter VIA The People's E-Mail Network

Is torture the new American Principle?

Is the unilateral invasion of a soveriegn nation that posed no threat to the U.S.A. the new American Principle?

Is warrentless wiretapping of Americans the new American Principle?

Is with holding Birth Rights from citizens the new American Principle?

Is unaccountability of those who do all this and more...


It is when good men do nothing that let worse men institute these new principles, setting the groundwork for unAmerican principles to take up root. Even worse is when good men accommodate the worse men and vote to enshrine these new principles into laws, theories, and other principles of being. Egregiously far worse, is when good men continue to do nothing, codifying these new principles and validating these worse men as exceptional men for their wisdom and brilliance at undermining what Real American Principles are.

So, Congressman and Senators,

It is times like this where facades MUST fall. What are your American Principles and how do you comport them into your Duty? You aren't defending, protecting, preserving the Constitution of the USA, when you allow the usurpations of the Constitutional laws of the USA.

In solidarity with the events of July 23 taking place in DC, CodePINK Women for Peace in Seminole county send Rep. John Conyers the message from central Florida. Hear the HONKS for IMPEACH CHENEY FIRST!!!

You all are an inspiration to us! Thank you for what you are doing. We'll appreciate your good vibrations tomorrow.

"A LYING IMPERIAL PRESIDENCY", as aptly stated by the Honorable Congress Member Mel Watt, and ruled "parliamentary" by the House Judiciary Sub-Committee on Commercial and Administrative Law, is a definite "wake-up call" for all American citizens throughout the nation, code URGENT! A "lying imperial presidency" is a horrifying abomination come true for a freedom loving nation, and only Congress can impeach a would-be king for treason, and other high crimes and misdemeanors. Demand that our Congress Members co-sign and support H.Res.333 Cheney Impeachment Bill for Accountability! Impeach to save the Republic today, code URGENT!


He's going down! He's going down, down! HE's GOIN' DOWN!

:o) my kitchen table looking out into my back yard into the dusk of this Summer evening, July 23, 2007, and I watched the lightening bugs, and it took me back 62 or 63 years to my innocent and carefree youth, when I used to marvel at those kind of things, and I wondered how and why I let myself get caught up in the Adult things of this World.

And I thought those lightening bugs will be out there 62 or 63 years from now, baring some kind or another of an Adult-induced catastrophy. And there, in that thought, I had my answer.

Impeach them, Mr. Conyers.
Impeach them, Ms. Pelosi.

There are some good reasons to impeach: It's their job, and they promised.

If they cannot be trusted to do their job when it is simple, what will make us believe they will do their job when it is difficult, and they have more power?

They have time. They just don't have the inclination. Bad choice.
