Kucinich Will Introduce Privileged Resolution To Force Up Or Down Vote On Cheney Impeachment


From the Office of Congressman Dennis Kucinich

WASHINGTON, D.C. (November 2, 2007) — Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) announced today that he will be offering a privileged resolution on the House floor next week that will bring articles of impeachment against the Vice President, Richard B. Cheney.

“The momentum is building for impeachment,” Kucinich said. “Millions of citizens across the nation are demanding Congress rein in the Vice President’s abuse of power.

“Despite this groundswell of opposition to the unconstitutional conduct of office, Vice President Cheney continues to violate the U.S. Constitution by insisting the power of the executive branch is supreme.

“Congress must hold the Vice President accountable. The American people need to let Members of Congress know how they feel about this. The Vice President continues to use his office to advocate for a continued occupation of Iraq and prod our nation into a belligerent stance against Iran. If the Vice President is successful, his actions will ensure decades of disastrous consequences.”

The privileged resolution has priority status for consideration on the House floor. Once introduced, the resolution has to be brought to the floor within two legislative days, although the House could act on it immediately. Kucinich is expected to bring it to the House floor on Tuesday, November 6.

H. Res. 333, Articles of Impeachment against the Vice President, has 21 cosponsors. They are: Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Robert Brady (D-PA), Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-MO), Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN), Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), Rep. Sam Farr (D-CA), Rep. Bob Filner (D-CA), Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX), Rep. Henry Johnson (D-GA), Rep. Carolyn Kilpatrick (D-MI), Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA), Rep. James Moran (D-VA), Rep. Donald Payne (D-NJ), Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Rep. Edolphus Towns (D-NY), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), Rep. Diane Watson (D-CA), Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA) and Rep. Albert Wynn (D-MD).

I prey that cheney will be impeached. I know many Americans have that same wish. If you go out into the country side and pick 10,000 people and take a vote to IMPEACH cheney we would have a score of 10,000 to nothing to IMPEACH this wicked individual. Take that same vote in the U.S. House and you get what Patty shot at, ZERO, ZIP, Zillch, and the wicked bastard walks. It used to be, God Bless America. Now it's, God help America. Thanks Mr. Kucinich for trying.

You are all outrageous. It's sickens me to see men of such position not know the facts behind the decisions. Where do you base some of your information on? This is just disgusting. Men like Mr. Kucinich are naive and hypocritical.

What has Dick or George done for you and your family?

The list at the end of the above post is a list of the REAL PATRIOTS occupying seats in the House of Representatives. Congressman Kucinich will launch himself head and shoulders above the other democratic corporatists with this parliamentary maneuver.

His resolution will serve multiple purposes! First and foremost, his resolution will force the issue and expose all those who try to talk like a progressive but act like war mongers (sound familiar Hillary?). Secondly, introducing this resolution will in a very effective and dramatic way INTRODUCE Congressman Kucinich to more Americans who may not understand and/or realize that he is the one Democratic candidate who understands all of their concerns and beliefs about what America should be all about as well as reflecting how much we Americans despise secrecy, deceit and corruption.

Dennis Kucinich is the one candidate who is courageous enough to stand before all the war mongers and truly represent WE THE PEOPLE! He deserves our support and votes as well as our resolve to refute the propaganda from the mainstream media which professes that Kucinich "can't win".

...who's going to bring a little oxygen back into that room. It's going to be interesting to see what happens when that oxygen hits the fan.

God bless all the sponsors of this very important bill!
If we had a real presence in mainstream media, beyond the Internet (which is growing), this important subject would have momentum, forcing congress to act and throw the bum out.

I'm overwhelmed with sadness that Feinstein among others could even think about confirming Mukasey and can only hope she would vote to impeach Cheney. It is time for all those who don't care or who have forgotten what America is all about. Get rid of Cheney and the likes of him now and forever!

Should have been done right after the last election, but its not too late. I would give a months pay to see the SOB Cheney sporting a yellow jumpsuit with a number on it.

They truthfully shouldn't have been in office in the first place. I would pay a years salary to rid the world of this monster posing as a human being.

We cannot allow the precedence of lies, secrecy, torture, murder of our troops by sending them to a war on false pretenses, that Dick Cheney & George Bush have modeled during these past 8 years. This would only give the signal to future Administrations that the citizenry of the United States will tolerate this. We will not. Any of us engaged in such actions would be arrested and in prison by now. This is the new "morality" that the neo-conservatives espouse?

If America wishes to restore it's integrity in the eyes of the world, all Americans will have to get behind the facts of TWO stolen elections, the criminal behaviour of their executive, and the WAR which they are creating on a daily basis. This will be the war to end all wars, and anyone left standing will probably wish not to be. Consider the fire-power on the globe. Consider the taking away of our children's future.
To sacrifice ONE MAN against billions is NO sacrifice, especially as it can be proven in a court of LAW, that the subject of this email, is as big a WAR CRIMINAL as Hitler and Stalin ever were.
CHENEY must be demoted, disgraced and imprisoned. Then throw away the key, for all to see. UNTIL that happens, the Republic that was America has absolutely NO credibility.
AND don't stop there! Go after the whole BUSH family. They have afterall been behind most of the nonsense emanating from the White House for more than 30 years, as have Cheney and Rumsfeld. All this can be proven in a court of Law, which is more than these criminals have given their so-called terrorists and extraordinary rendition victims.
I know that the 3rd World War is just around the corner and that these wars have only ever been created by individual men with malice and greed in their hearts. Dick Cheney is one such man. He is the go-between. He is the manipulator for 'the Hidden Hand' that has corrupted your government. And he must be stopped... or killed, just as 'they' killed Martin Luther and JFK, whichever comes first is quite irrelevant to me. It will be kill or be killed in the end. The other important point is for Americans to realise that another civil war in your country is quite inevitable if you do not act now! It is written on the subway walls and being talked about in high intellectual, judiciary and government circles. Even in the military, without whom you cannot act anyway, so you had better get them on-board. You don't think I know what I'm talking about?!
Don't think it can happen again?! Look at the history of the U.K. and you will begin to understand that nothing has EVER been stable when it comes to politics and power. It has always been coercion, force and wars. The Brits have a proud history of total and utter stupidity. I am a Brit! I have lived here most of my life and I know history in the making. Study it and you will see the future of America. America is becoming Rome. Rome began as a Republic, until the Ceasars arrived! Then all hell broke out. Study history. It is littered with Cheneys, and always TOO LATE, the good people realise it, too late...

I doubt that the Congress is going to move to Impeach now. What can we do to ensure that this is just the next step in a building and developing process, rather than spun once again as just being the sign of a dead issue?

Surely, some of us most be thinking about this. How do we frame the vote to make sure it is not characterized as a defeat of the Impeachment movement??
