THE COURAGE OF KUCINICH IN PELOSI'S HOUSE OF WACKS


Was it retaliation by the the Democratic Leadership that exempted Dennis Kucinich from appearing with fellow Presidential candidates at Friday's Jefferson Jackson Day fundraiser in Iowa?

Was it Speaker Pelosi's vindictive payback to Kucinich for his impudent dismissal of her "impeachment is off the table" dictum that kept Kucinich out of the Jefferson Jackson Day party? After all, hadn't Kucinich introduced HRes 333 on the House Floor just that week, calling for the impeachment of Vice President Cheney, in defiance of the prescripted cowardice in Pelosi's House of Wacks? (http://kucinich.house.gov/UploadedFiles/int2.pdf)

Until that moment when Congressman Kucinich introduced impeachment resolution HRes 333 on to the House Floor, members of Pelosi's Democratic majority had fallen spinelessly in line, kowtowing to Pelosi's disavowal of Article I Section 2 of the Constitution, which grants the House the authority to impeach. (http://www.u-s-history.com/pages/h231.html).

Speaker Pelosi's wanton subversion of the Constitution, which has subjected this nation and the world to the continued atrocities of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, will be far more relevant in the annals of history than her singular honor as the nation's first woman Speaker of the House. Pelosi's legacy (thus far), as the most powerful woman in the history of this land, has been shamefully tarnished by catastrophic failures in leadership and courage - predicated principally on her refusal to hold President Bush and Vice President Cheney accountable for their crimes.

On the heels of September 11, 2001, George W. Bush squandered his chance to capitalize on the support of the world by not taking the appropriate multilateral actions against the rogues who'd assaulted our nation from without.

On the heels of January 4, 2007, after becoming Speaker, Nancy Pelosi squandered her chance to capitalize on the support of the world by not taking the appropriate multilateral actions against the rogues who'd assaulted our nation from within - namely George Bush and Dick Cheney.

Pelosi's failure to form the necessary coalitions to pursue Bush and Cheney for their crimes against America is as damaging as George Bush's failure to form the necessary coalitions to pursue Bin Laden and al-Zawahiri for theirs. As Bin Laden and al-Zawahiri plot further assaults from without against America, Bush and Cheney plot further assaults from within. Some may argue the difference between the two-evil-duos is that Bin Laden and al-Zawahiri knowingly harmed America, while Bush and Cheney's harm is unwitting. Unwitting or not, Bush and Cheney have done more long-term damage to the safety and stability of America than Bin Laden and al-Zawahiri had ever hoped to achieve.

It's this failure on the part of Pelosi to use her authority to thwart Bush and Cheney that has incensed Democrats, and growing numbers of Republicans, all across this land. It's Pelosi's suppression of the members of her House, and their willingness to be suppressed, that has incensed Americans all across this land. Sadly, to the lawmakers ensconced inside the Washington bubble, the intensity of Americans' anger is likely not known - which makes the need to intensify the levels of activism, including outreach to their offices, that much more necessary. Constant contact is critical to make them understand.

If only both Houses of Wacks would empty in 2008 - to follow the Great White. If only we could replenish them all with real leaders.

During the dozen years the Republicans held the majorities in the U.S. Senate and House, there was ample sympathy from the frustrated constituents of the long suffering Democratic minority. It was believed, and certainly hoped, that if given control, the Democrats would summon the courage and moral authority to end the war and reinstate America's Constitutional principles and respectability in the world. Now, a full year has passed since November of 2006 and nothing of the sort has happened. In retrospect, it was sheer whimsy.

Instead, over the past year, Congress members, under the leadership of the well-mannered, genteel Speaker Pelosi, and Senators, under the leadership of the well-mannered, genteel Senator Reid, are fodder for brawling Republicans. Instead of backbone, Democrats govern by courtesy. How does one quantify how many American lives have been lost in Iraq due to courtesy? Or how many limbs have been lost? Or how many Iraqis have been murdered, maimed and displaced? How many Iraqi children have been orphaned? How many emergency rooms in America would still be open? How many Americans would have health care? How many homes would be rebuilt in New Orleans? How many fire-fighting planes would have flown over California? How many? How many? We will never know.

In different times - less urgent times - there is much to be said for courtesy. BUT THESE ARE NOT THOSE TIMES!!!

Then there is Dennis Kucinich - the diminutive giant in the House of Representatives. The American Congressman from the 10th District of Ohio who refuses to be silenced. The Democratic candidate for President who passionately upholds his oath to protect the people and Constitution of the United States of America from all enemies both foreign and domestic. Not as an oral exercise when sworn into office - but as a moral exercise every day while in office.

For Dennis Kucinich, no one, including Pelosi, will suppress his allegiance to his country and to his abiding principle of "strength through peace."

So when Speaker Pelosi tells the cowards in her House that "impeachment is off the table" because the fight to impeach is too hard, Kucinich doesn't believe her. No one ever told him being a Congressman would be easy. No one ever told him maintaining democracy was a cinch. When the President and Vice President commit acts as egregious as lying the nation into illegal war, illegally surveilling their own citizens, endorsing and allowing torture, AND MORE, the strong don't stay quiet. It's the weak, like Pelosi, Hoyer, Emanuel, Clyburne, Boehner, Murtha, Blunt, and over 400 others in Pelosi's House of Wacks - Democrats and Republicans alike - who do. As do Reid, Durbin, Lott, McConnell, Feinstein and around 93 more in the Senate House of Wacks - absent Boxer and Feingold who have earned our respect.

At the October 31st Democratic candidates' debate in Philadelphia, NBC's Tim Russert tried to discredit Dennis Kucinich by questioning him about a UFO. Kucinich, accustomed to being blind-sided by agenda-minded practitioners like Russert, fielded the question with resilience and cool. Working in tandem, the networks and Democratic Leadership were trying to force Kucinich out of the running. It's amazing how much pressure the honest must endure, while the compliant seem to get a free ride.

At Friday's Jefferson Jackson Day Democratic fundraiser in De Moines, Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel weren't invited. Gravel, in all likelihood, was persona non grata to the Democratic Leadership for challenging his "fellows" on their lies, deceits and inadequacies. Gravel never seemed to "get" that his "fellows" CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!

Iowa Democrats, when challenged on Kucinich and Gravel's absence from the Jefferson Jackson Day event, stated that Kucinich and Gravel were ineligible to attend because they didn't have an office or staff in Iowa. (http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/11/10/outside-the-jefferson-jack...) Point of fact, Kucinich had garnered more than enough popularity amongst Democrats to warrant his inclusion. He's been polling quite high over the past two months, often running 4th in the field of eight. (http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/?q=node/28227)

For those who understand the politics of Pelosi's House of Wacks, it's clear Kucinich's dismissal of her impeachment stay, ensured his own dismissal from Jefferson Jackson Day. Particularly since, Pelosi, herself, was emcee.

As of now, Kucinich's House Resolution 333 to impeach Vice President Cheney has been sent to the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by former progressive hero, John Conyers. Hopefully, Congressman Conyers will be the fortunate recipient of COUNTLESS letters, phone calls, faxes and emails asking him to give HR 333 SERIOUS consideration when it comes to his committee. He can change the House of Wacks into a House of Facts - and restore his nation to sanity.

Et tu John Conyers? Will you remain silent, as you have, since winning re-election on November 7, 2006? Or will you remember Article I Section 2 of the Constitution and the oath you swore to uphold it?

Excellent post. Please be aware that the designation of Kucinich's bill changed after last week's floor action. It is now H. Res. 799.

I have made a new pledge to myself to contact (at least) Pelosi, Hoyer, and Conyers by email, fax or phone EVERY DAY. Other members of the Judiciary Committee need to hear from us as well (don't forget to give props to Rep. Wexler for his support of hearings).

I think it's time to get actively involved in the Kucinich campaign (for me anyway). We should all find out the info on our state caucuses and work with local Kooch campaigns to force the will of the people upon the Democratic Party. While I'm offering sage advice, sending a couple of bucks to Dennis would be good, too (if Paul's supporters can, we can).

SAUDI PRINCE BANDAR WARNED BUSH

On Friday, November 2, 2007, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer reported the actual footage of Prince Bandar claiming that he had warned Bush of the impending attack that in fact took place on 9/11. After I heard that story I suspected it would never be reported again. I was right.

It is extremely important for Dennis to realize that in all probability the Bush government told CNN to not play that report again. After Prince Bandar warned Bush, Bush had two choices. I must assume that Bush chose to use the Al Qaeda attack for his cover-up decision to rig the explosives in the WTC to make the attack more effective. Then he also had to have Flight 77 diverted so a military weapon would be sure to blow a hole into the Pentagon. The two large Pratt & Whitney jet engines were not in the rubble at the Pentagon. Those steel, titanium engines can’t evaporate.

We know for a fact that he never used Bandar’s warning to prevent the attack by the Al Qaeda people being surveilled by FBI Special Agents who admitted on the record that they were prevented by the Justice Department to continue their surveillance.

I have no idea why Bandar chose to make that statement public on November 2, 2007, but he did. Of course that is by far the most powerful story of the year. The fact that CNN and other broadcast media blacked out that incredible news indicates how sensitive it of course is.

Adding treason to HR 333 changes HR 333 from a firecracker into a hydrogen bomb.

Is Dennis and this campaign going to address the 9/11 attack as it pertains to impeachment, as it pertains to this sleazy government and sleazy media sweeping this act of treason under the rug, and as it pertains to this Presidential campaign? Or is the fear of foolish political maneuvers going to prevent anything good from happening.

The lies that led America to war are constantly mentioned as if they were on the same level as the Clinton, Monica Lewinsky sex act. Isn’t the manipulation of false intelligence to promote the Iraq war an act of treason? If that’s not treason, what the hell do you think treason is? Why is treason not a part of HR 333? This is a political decision that is the epitome of outrageous foolishness at best. It could easily be classified as deceit.

I strongly suggest that health care, trade, fair taxation, jobs, the economy, and all other very important, very serious issues be tabled until there is a conclusion to deal with treason. Treason needs to become paramount or this campaign will continue to flounder. Am I going to hear a response on this issue of dire importance?

Can the Prince Bandar story become the alarm that wakes you?

what a F'ning Witch of the West = if only a bucket of water would make that bitch go away. i'm just seeeeething over this hydra-medusa monster Pelosi.

CAMPAIGN MOMENT OF TRUTH

Will Dennis react or respond to being visibly ignored as insignificant by Pelosi at the huge Iowa Democrats performance live show televised on C-span last night, Saturday November 10, 2007? Even Senator Dodd was welcomed by the MC Speaker Pelosi. CT Senator Dodd has collected huge donations for his Presidential campaign that gets no approval except from the small CT Democratic Party operators who try to be polite to their Senator.

Are Dennis and his campaign team going to ignore this glaring hatred by Pelosi for the most kind, brilliant, decent, Democratic Candidate? Is this campaign going to ask for financial support unless there will be a campaign response that has even a slight chance to overcome this tidal wave of destruction by the leadership of the Democratic Party? Or will Dennis and his campaign pretend to ignore the tidal wave?

Dennis can choose to destroy Pelosi for her choice to exclude, embarrass, demean, and defy polls that rank Dennis much higher than Dodd, sometimes higher than Biden and Richardson, and have been higher than Hillary, Obama, and Edwards. Or will Dennis and his squeamish followers ignore this moment.

Please choose your side now. If you choose to ignore this, you should in good conscious choose to admit defeat and go off into the sunset. Quit your whining, quit asking people to waste their money, and find another hobby.

My choice will be to use the best strategy that will be impossible to ignore. The reason that Pelosi and her group raise huge sums of money is because they kick back for their bribes. Dennis is the only candidate who refuses to kick back. The complete, clear choice to remove the entire insurance industry from the health care scam is the proof of the bribe and kick back factor. But Dennis and his campaign managers must identify this fact explicitly.

My second and most powerful weapon would be to attack Pelosi for the choice she made in Iowa in return for HR 333. The connection of HR 333 to its glaring omission of treason needs to be amended now.

If you people continue to ignore the Bush & Cheney attack on 9/11 used to start the Iraq war and keep funding the Iraq war you all have important work to do. The 9/11 attack was not allowed by Bush & Cheney it was ordered by Bush & Cheney. That is treason. There is a record of Saudi Prince Bandar claiming to have told Bush before 9/11 that the hijacking would occur. If you people want to keep ignoring the record of people at the WTC who heard explosions before the buildings collapsed, you are delusional. There is plenty more which I will not pursue now.
