"More than two centuries ago, the Founders of this country set forth a procedure for Congress to follow in the event of grave abuse of power by the Chief Executive. That process is impeachment. In the face of the monumental deceit and disregard for the Constitution that we have witnessed on the part of the President over the past seven years, Congressman Kucinich’s initiation of this process is neither fanciful nor futile, neither vengeful nor vindictive; it is the sober fulfillment of his sworn duty as a Congressman to follow the law without regard to personal consequence and misguided political stratagem. It is, quite simply, an act of patriotism."
—Elizabeth de la Vega, Former Federal Prosecutor
and author of United States v. George W. Bush et. al.

"This collection of impeachable offenses should be viewed as a sampling of the crimes and abuses of President George W. Bush and his subordinates. Bush has had many accomplices — first and foremost Vice President Cheney. But our Founders created a single executive precisely so that we could hold that one person accountable for the actions of the executive branch. It is high time we did so, and millions of Americans will be urging their representatives to support the effort being led by Congressman Kucinich.

"These articles establish, and hearings would establish further, that President Bush was ‘the decider’ behind countless abuses of power. And, of course, his public comments have time and again advertised his indifference to the laws he is violating. Not only does overwhelming evidence show us that Bush knew his claims about WMDs to be false, but the president has shown us that he considers the question of truth or falsehood to be laughably irrelevant. When Diane Sawyer asked Bush why he had claimed with such certainty that there were so many weapons in Iraq, he replied: 'What’s the difference? The possibility that [Saddam] could acquire weapons, If he were to acquire weapons, he would be the danger.'

"What’s the difference? Hundreds of thousands of corpses and a fatal blow to the rule of law among nations. That’s the difference. Unless we remove impeachment from the Constitution by failing to exercise it, in which case truth will no longer matter any more than justice or peace."
— David Swanson, creator of, Washington Director of and co-founder of the

"Overload is the main problem—I call it outrage fatigue. The sheer multitude, not to mention magnitude, of impeachable offenses tends to dull the senses. The opportunity to dig into just one or two provided some space and focused the mind.

"At the same time, the deeper one digs, the more unimaginable the dirt that comes up. Earlier, I had not taken the time to sift through the abundant evidence of the unconscionable ways in which George Bush and George Tenet teamed up—including, in Tenet’s case, lying under oath—to stave off charges of misfeasance/ malfeasance before the attacks on 9/11.

"The Founders pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to create a system in which we could protect ourselves from unbridled power. Today, we cannot let a 21st Century string of abuses and usurpations stand without challenge.

"But the experience of the past several years shows that there is a very high hurdle in our way: no Common Sense. I refer, of course, to the courageous independent journalism of the likes of Tom Paine who stirred the innate dignity of Americans toward sacrifice for independence and freedom. Tom Paine would be horrified to see what has become of his profession today—with browbeaten journalists and former general officers doing the bidding of the corporations that own/pay them.

"In my view, impeachment proceedings are essential to:

* Reestablish the separation of powers in our Constitution as a check on the so-called unitary executive
* Prevent a budding—and catastrophic—US attack on Iran by exposing it as yet another war of aggression against a country posing no threat to the US;
* Call attention to the blood already drained from our civil liberties and staunch the bleeding.

"Impeachment proceedings may be the only way to force the captive media to inform normal citizens about what has been going on in our country. Thomas Jefferson underscored the importance of this when he said: 'Whenever the people are well informed, they can be trusted with their own government.'"
—Ray McGovern; former Army officer and CIA analyst;
co-founder, Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity

"President Bush, Cheney and other US officials have violated numerous domestic and international laws governing crime of aggression, war crime, torture, etc., and they should be not only impeached by the US Congress but also be prosecuted by a special prosecutor, to the full extent of the law before or after impeachment. That is the best way to uphold the US Constitution and the rule of law at home and abroad."
—John Kim, Esq., Attorney; author of The Crime
of Aggression Against Iraq

"The breadth of impeachable offenses committed by the Bush/Cheney administration is likely unparalleled in our nation’s history. Equally unparalleled, and in many cases even more alarming and outrageous, is the lack of accountability brought to the perpetrators of these High Crimes and Misdemeanors. It is the Constitutional duty of members of Congress—members from any political party—to bring such accountability, particularly when the list of crimes began with the very acts that brought this administration into office during their elections, and right up through today when the same sort of crimes continue, and are in place to try and affect our next Presidential Election.

"This is not about politics, it’s about the Constitutional duty of Congress. If a line in the sand is not drawn immediately and clearly in the face of such corruption and disdain for our American values, such as the Rule of Law, the historical bar for criminality in our Executive Branch will have been forever lowered, no matter who happens to serve in the White House in the future."
—Brad Friedman, creator/ editor of The Brad Blog, and co-founder of the watchdog organization

“I have provided the legal architecture and evidence for a trial to prosecute the President for murder. My book lends credence to a powerful case for impeachment laid out persuasively by Congressman Dennis Kucinich’s 35 Articles of Impeachment.”
— Vincent Bugliosi, Former District Attorney, author of
The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder

Rep Dennis Kucinich BOLDLY stepped forward and presented to Congress and the American people his 39 Impeachment Articles against Cheney and Bush so breathtaking in their scope that they started at the very beginning of the 1st term with Bush's abject failure to heed for nine months all the multiple warnings about the imminent 9/11 attacks all the way to the ending of Bush's 2nd term with his threats to attack Iran and even the mishandling of his economic crisis. Bush's 2 terms are all inclusive, with dastardly high crimes and misdemeanors from start to finish, documented with volumes of evidence, respectfully submitted for the posterity of the American people, if not for a single impeachment hearing ever.

In a perfect world, where justice always happens, Dennis Kucinich and Vince Bugliosi present us with a dual case of Impeachment AND Prosecution for Murder against George W Bush.
May it result in his Conviction as well.

It's what I dreamed about last night...

So it may not be a dream,,but a reality...

What a nightmare,,,all the serious crimes this administration has committed.


I'm totally with you on this one!

Are you GOP tools getting it yet? What are you going to do when some "Democratic" president comes along who is equally as bad or even worse than Bush, you try to hold him accountable under our Constitution, and he and all his minions throw the Bush precedent in your face?

I can hear the future conversation now:

"Impeach the president for crimes against humanity and our Constitution!"

"Give it up. You have no chance. He'll be out of office in a few months anyway."

"This is not just about removing the president! It's about honoring the Constitution and the rule of law! We MUST have justice and accountability!"

"You should have thought about that when George W. Bush was the Pretender-in-Chief. If they didn't impeach, remove and prosecute him for all his thoroughly documented crimes against humanity and our Constitution, why should it be done now? Face it, fools. The Constitution is now exactly what GWB said it was: Just a goddamned piece of paper."

Sounds familiar, doesn't it?

Jeezus, you idiots. Wake the hell up.

Unfiltered Video Commentary:

Congress conspires with Wall Street to bring America to its knees

Our Constitutional Republic is broken, we are dealing with the most insidious domestic enemies ever seen and we are in the middle of the worst national crisis ever seen.

No doubt the same elements who are behind the 9/11 scam are behind the current "financial crisis" as well.

Since Cheney and Bush are the most reviled war profiteering criminals in the world, they have already imprisoned themselves. Can you imagine the paranoia and security for the security for the security, etc. they need for their own personal security?

Those sub-human parasites are capable of anything, including threatening billions of lives just to protect the "security" of their sorry life!

"Pardon" my cynicism but I doubt America's broken "Justice System" could ever accommodate the likes of them. The innocent victims of Bush's Iraq Holocaust and Depleted Uranium poisoning are rightfully entitled to judge their fate and serve them justice!

A Message For George Walker Bush:

I have been working in this town for a few weeks and hitched a ride on a back-hoe. I am hanging on and appreciating the awesome weather. I am on Detroit Rd. leaving the Elbur Rd location and heading toward Riverside. We pass this office that said it was the district office of Dennis Kucinich. WOW!!! I will visit that office in the next few days with my Kucinich 2008 t-shirt on. I am so close!!! I thought he was from Cleveland ... not Lakewood!


Beg him to GO GREEN!!!

"A country without a Soul is destined for Hell...on Earth."

I am voting democratic again ... my last time. In Ohio there is no Green.

The news media and the Cleveland Plain Dealer has Northern Ohio brainwashed. I feel helpless and have found out that being right is lose - lose.


Dennis Kucinich, you are my hero and give me hope for a better tomorrow in a world where people really do look around and consider the world they live in. THANK YOU!!
