Key Section of Executive Summary of Conyers' Report

There is a prima facie case that these actions by the President, Vice-President
and other members of the Bush Administration violated a number of federal laws,
including (1) Committing a Fraud against the United States; (2) Making False
Statements to Congress; (3) The War Powers Resolution; (4) Misuse of Government
Funds; (5) federal laws and international treaties prohibiting torture and cruel,
inhuman, and degrading treatment; (6) federal laws concerning retaliating against
witnesses and other individuals; and (7) federal laws and regulations concerning
leaking and other misuse of intelligence.

While these charges clearly rise to the level of impeachable misconduct,
because the Bush Administration and the Republican-controlled Congress have blocked
the ability of Members to obtain information directly from the Administration
concerning these matters, more investigatory authority is needed before
recommendations can be made regarding specific Articles of Impeachment. As a
result, we recommend that Congress establish a select committee with subpoena
authority to investigate the misconduct of the Bush Administration with regard to the
Iraq war detailed in this Report and report to the Committee on the Judiciary on
possible impeachable offenses.

In addition, we believe the failure of the President, Vice President and others
in the Bush Administration to respond to myriad requests for information concerning
these charges, or to otherwise account for explain a number of specific misstatements
they have made in the run up to War and other actions warrants, at minimum, the
introduction and Congress= approval of Resolutions of Censure against Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney. Further, we recommend that Ranking Member Conyers and others
consider referring the potential violations of federal criminal law detailed in this
Report to the Department of Justice for investigation; Congress should pass legislation
to limit government secrecy, enhance oversight of the Executive Branch, request
notification and justification of presidential pardons of Administration officials, ban
abusive treatment of detainees, ban the use of chemical weapons, and ban the
practice of paying foreign media outlets to publish news stories prepared by or for the
Pentagon; and the House should amend its Rules to permit Ranking Members of
Committees to schedule official Committee hearings and call witnesses to investigate
Executive Branch misconduct.

Let's hope this snowballs. What else can we do to push it downhill?

Cheney and all other civil officers of the united states shall also be removed from office as well.

Clinton's lied about an affair was child's play compared to these facists!

President Bush and his whole group of supporters need to be removed from power. They only got in because of huge Corporate backing, lies and illegal manipulation of the voting process and then installed their own voting machines with no paper trail. Now they are doing all they can to remove citizens' rights and welfare while enhancing the 'rights' and welfare of wealthy corporations (including much of the news media) which contribute to their corrupt cause. This is NOT capitalism or democracy...this is Corporatism and Facism enhanced by a misuse of Christian principles.

This has already gone on far too long. The Republicans act like they don't have to be legally re-elected. My state's representatives have constantly taken the side of this corrupt administration and against the citizens. I hope there is a way to cancel some of these facist policies too; the patriot act, the real ID, the bankruptcy bill, tax cuts to billionaires, corporations that do not pay taxes and get incentives for sending jobs overseas, policies that stop injured parties from suing negligent companies, tests designed to cause the failure of public schools, refusing to raise the 7 year old minimum wage and on and on....... They have been very busy.

We need democracy in America

Bush is just showing the world that he is inadiquate as President, he needs his Corporate buds to tll him what to do, like a puppet on a strng.

Very well said!

I am past 80 & have never seen as much political cheating as is going
on with the republican administration, they act like that they have to get as rich as they can before the US of America goes belly up & they can transfer thier allegiance to some other country.

Deceptions and crusades against 1.5 billion Muslims

Low-spirited sad hero of the lost war now politically freefalling Mr. Bush is vouching everything he touched has turned into stone. Mr. Bush’s plan to convert all Muslims of the world into christen hood, as per evangelical theory and to make worldwide American empire is a deception to him, Americans and Muslim world.

Democrats and Republicans are applauding President Bush for acknowledging mistakes in Iraq. Now decency demands his resignation from the office, as he is a total failure. He admitted that ‘’I know that some of my decisions have led to terrible loss and not one of those decisions has been taken lightly,"

Israel is the 20th century's greatest robbery and now Israel wants to strike Iran with the prior backing of America is also a part of deceptions and crusades against 1.5 billion Muslims of the world. The hero of a trillion dollar lonely loosing poker game Mr. Bush has conceded defeat through his low-spirited speech should step down like a decent man.
Yes Mr. Bush is right he is winning in Iraq and Afganistan in a Vietnams style war, every one in the whole of the world knows expect Mr. Bush, And Mr. Bush feels using prime time can make American public to believe his deceptive winning stories, no definitely not, American public is smart, they do not see any clear cut wining signs in the shape of victorious troops coming back home. Seeing believing. .
1.5 billion Muslims were friends before invasions Mr. Bush have converted them as enemies through deceptive crusading strategies. Mr. Bush should make friends not enemies; unfortunately his options are for the later. Every single day Mr. Bush is creating more enemies through his deceptive behavior. At home unsatisfied Americans are source of relief, to entire world looking for democratic values in United States.

Mr. Bush wants to create new allies like Iraq and Afganistan clearly reflect deceptive strategy to invade other Muslim countries to make them allies. "My conviction comes down to this: We do not create terrorism by fighting the terrorists. We invite terrorism by ignoring them. And we will defeat the terrorists by capturing and killing them abroad, removing their safe havens, and strengthening new allies like Iraq and Afghanistan in the fight we share."

Mr. Bush also quoted, ‘’Christmas carol, written during the Civil War: "God is not dead, nor [does] He sleep; the Wrong shall fail, the Right prevail, with peace on Earth, goodwill to men." Here Mr. Bush is wrong with 1.5 Muslims as he remembers christens and Jews holidays while he does not want to mention Muslim holidays that is (Hajj) the greatest pilgrimage congregations of Muslims in Mecca.

Mr. Bushs Deceptive strategies cannot change the course. 45 percent Iraqis and Afghanis, favoring killing of Americans that was not the case before invasions.

Is Mr. Bush ready to kill all those 45 percent who favors killing of Americans? No, Deceptive one-way invasion for capturing one person is not a war but a deception as such war rules cannot be applied to its own citizens for harassments and Deceptive invasions in Iraq, Afganistan, extending to Iran and Syria. None of them are capable and armed to damage United States, like Japan did.

The forefathers of American nation never presented the model of deceptive democracy in which secret spying is termed legal and tortures permissible. In search of oil invasions are clearly deceptions and are immoral, illegal, and illegitimate and show stubbornness, arrogance as well as ignorance. For invading Iran again deceptive strategy is under way.

In Hitler times Holocaust crime was committed in Germany. What compensation Germans have offered to the Jews for the brutal acts done there. When Germans talk about punishing Iran on just mare statements, what about the nation who have committed such heinous crime on their lands what compensation they can offer to absorb them in their lands? "We are looking at (possible) measures at the level of the UN," Thomas de Mazieres, chief of staff of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, told the Welt am Sonntag newspaper.

Mr. Bush has just forgotten that he is democratically elected president and not an emperor of imperial America. All of his actions are like emperor until he is caught on wrong foot, and when he is caught on wrong foot, then his angered explanation is, that he is working under the framework of law and constitution to protect America and the world. His thought and explanation are naïve based on extremist’s radical, religious and racial hate.

Hate theory of Hitler lead to worldwide wars and destructions, likewise his hate theory is destroying the humanity and the world. Congress and senate are considered as rubber stamp to say yes to his plans and theories, that’s why he is becoming unpopular in the whole of the world, starting from United States to the remotest parts of this planet. Tide can be reversed, if there is a will, unfortunately there seams to be no will, but arrogance and stubbornness.

We are living in a whole new world where meaning and interpretations of law and constitution is twisted / molded to favor torture and eavesdropping. If Mr. Bush’s interpretations are right then going to war was wrong, especially when Americans were protected by Mr. Bush’s authorizations of torture and eavesdropping over 30 times, he said, "This is highly classified program crucial to our national security" and its purpose is to detect and prevent terrorist attacks".

Turnout in election was termed as victory and Mr. Bush promised to pull out of Iraq after victory. He should honor his commitment and get ready for the pullout from Iraq as well as Afganistan and Kuwait.

Home grown anti Bush administration polices sentiments have spread world over, as anti American polices sentiments. To make America and the world safer, warring and hate creating strategy has to be reversed, but who cares, as Mr. Bush knows he cannot be elected third time, as such he will continue his reverse gear strategy in full swing, until the last day of his tenure. In next three years he looks like determined to make the whole of the world like a hell.

Mr. Bush’s Wrong intelligence is lack of knowledge, which brought America into a mess. Uncivilized attitude is due to lack of knowledge and proper education. Pakistan is facing insurgencies from last 58 years, ever since Pakistan got independence that does not allows American forces to come in and end insurgencies. On the same analogy America is not needed to interfere in independent elected Iraq.

Without broad base education and educational polices, Pakistan has been ruled through one non-elected party, that is, its own armed forces directly or indirectly, it is continuing even after losing half of Pakistan. Though finest form of democracy is in Islamic principles, unfortunately that form of democracy does not exists any where in the whole Muslim world.

Mr. Bush’s reference of Japan and installing democracy there, that was only possible because of Japans 100 percent literacy rate over 200 years, he should know Muslim world is different which is predominantly uneducated comprising 57 countries and its 1.5 billion peoples. Education and right kind of knowledge is the key to success and for installing corruption free Islamic form of finest democracy. They do not need corrupted form of democracy and that is the bone of contention.

Mr. Bush took full responsibility of going to the war based on wrong intelligence, what does that mean, does that mean to go for more wrong moves? No, There was no insurgency, no insurgents, and no fear of civil war before invasion. One wrong move of invasion based on wrong intelligence has resulted in chaos and a cause of creating machinery, which can create thousands of Saddam Hussein. Moving forward the coalition forces back to their homes can reverse situation at home and in iraq as well as all over the world.

Elections are held in Iraq, get out of Iraq; insurgency will automatically come to an end as they are against invading forces not against Iraqis. Their point of view is that they are trying to protect Iraq from invaders. Mr. Bush decision to stay in Iraq to end insurgency and insurgent’s insistence to continue the attacks against American forces until they are expelled is a problem, which Mr. Bush can only solve to save America from the humiliations by announcing withdrawal plan.

President Bush said, "It is true that much of the intelligence turned out to be wrong. As president I am responsible for the decision to go into Iraq," Bush also called Thursday's elections in Iraq a "watershed moment in the story of freedom."

To correct one wrong now Mr. Bush is ready to commit another wrong. The question is can two wrong makes one right? No, absolutely no. Political, economic, and military strategy for victory in Muslim countries is to pull out from there, Sooner the better.

Mr. Bush further said "We are in Iraq today because our goal has always been more than the removal of brutal dictator," - "My decision to remove Saddam Hussein was the right decision. Saddam was a threat and the American people and the world is better off because he is no longer in power," - ‘’ We removed Saddam Hussein from power because he was a threat to our security.’’ - ‘’ Saddam Hussein refused to comply with more than a dozen United Nations resolutions’’ - ‘’ He invaded his neighbors.’’ - ‘’ The terrorists affiliated with or inspired by al Qaeda are the smallest, but most lethal group. They are led by a brutal terrorist named Zarqawi. He's al Qaeda's chief operations officer in Iraq.’’

The cause of insurgency is the presence of American forces in iraq, insurgents are against American forces and before arrival of American forces there was no insurgency and there was no al Qaeda, no one knew Zarqawi he was an ordinary man and after invasion he became insurgent and after gaining popularity through Mr. Bush he made his alliance with al Qaeda meaning American forces presence is cause of insurgency.

Mr. Bush attempt to involve Sunni Muslims in insurgency is an attempt to divide Muslims eternal brotherhood of 57 countries. In recent Organization of Islamic Conference meeting, where all Muslim countries participated, all were Muslims representatives; no one was representing Sunnis or Shiites or Wahabi etcetera.

He also quoted about japans democracy but forgot to say how kamikazes (suicide boomers) were brought into the main stream. All insurgency in iraq will end no sooner we announce withdrawal from iraq and the insurgents will become part of main stream as kamikazes (suicide boomers) did in Japan.

Iranian president is Shia and is pleading case of Palestinians who are Sunnis, meaning there is no rift in Sunnis and Shia. He said ``if you say and insist it's true that you killed 6 million Jews in crematoria during World War II, then why should the Palestinians pay for that?'' Ahmadinejad asked, referring to Europeans. ``Our proposal is that you give a piece of your land in Europe, the U.S., Canada or Alaska. If you do that, the Iranian people will no longer protest against you.'' common senses is the countries should compensates Jews for the crimes they committed on them by offering residency rights in respective countries to the Jews so as the concentration in Israel should be eased.

Bush admits, US has image ‘issue’ in Muslim world’. Mr. Bush what you sow, what you reap. You invaded Afganistan, Iraq and now you want to invade Iran and Syria, (all Muslim countries), they hate invaders, only because of your polices. Here in United States over 60 percent believe you invaded Iraq because of oil, every one knows that, but you. Though over 100,000 Iraqis have been killed but Bush admitted only 30,000 "I would say 30,000, more or less, have died as a result of the initial incursion and the ongoing violence against Iraqis," Bush said. "We've lost about 2,140 of our own troops in Iraq."

For invading Iran and Syria he is preparing ground, by saying "I made a tough decision. And knowing what I know today, I'd make the decision again," Bush said. "Removing Saddam Hussein makes this world a better place and America a safer country."

Saddam Hussein killed less Iraqis. Bush administration killed more Iraqis. C I A toppled democratically elected Iranian government and installed doctorial regime there. It is not about installing democracy, it is about installing ‘’yes man’’ and puppet governments all over the world and that is a part of American empire dream. If Mr. Bush really loves peace then why not accept noble prizewinners advise and eliminate all weapons of mass distractions.The biggest crime Saddam did towards United Sates was an assassination attempt on the life of ex President Bush for which Iraqis are punished in the name of removing WMD.

Bush presented himself as liberator to Iraqis. Now he is considered as occupiers, ruthless killers, invaders, oppressors and crusaders. Mr. Bush is solely responsible for creating bad image of America.

Columbus told that, world was flat, Bush told that, world would be safer without Iraq's weapons of mass destructions . Both were ill informed factually. Bush as Commander in chief took decision to go to the war and he feels incapable to pull out without generals advise. Mr. Bush policies promoted terrorism. Iraq has become a training ground for terrorists (they call themselves freedom fighters).

Elections are underway, now is the right time to pull out. Americans are considered enemies in all Muslim countries only because of Mr. Bush’s crusading against Muslims policies. It is shame for world’s sole super power to be unable to find Osama and Mullah Omar dead or alive. All fair calculations revile total failure of Mr. Bush policies.

Attack on Iran by Israel backed by Bush administration is also considered as crusade of Mr. Bush against Muslims. Make friends not enemies should be the winning theory, instead Mr. Bush want to create more and more enemies and believes without him in the office the situation would have been worst. His belief that he has made world safer is not understandable in the light of two on going wars and two more to come, it looks like, it is all part of lonely loosing poker gammas continuation theory.

Human rights violations around the world against Muslims have caused a great concern among 1.5 billion Muslims. The architect of crusades Mr. Bush policies are being blamed, which has created a grave divide in between peaceful peoples of the world. The need is to reverse anti Muslim polices, they need education, they need better infrastructure in their lands, they need better health, help them in those areas, that can bring peace and harmony in the world, that way America will look like a friend and not an enemy pulling triggers, on there heads, invading in there lands, thrusting corrupted democracy.

Weatherman and Mr. Bush’s predictions can go wrong and still they cannot be sacked. Mr. Bush needs to tell the nation what diplomatic, financial, moral gains have been achieved through Iraq and Afganistan wars. And now warring Bush is reedy to invade Iran and Syria. Mr. Bush’s Unpredictability and outlandish behavior is causing serious damage to the peace-loving world and its peoples. Setting timetable for withdrawal will mean creating confidence in him and his polices.

Mr. Bush won second term only because of Osama’s tape aired by Al-Jazeera before presidential election and made a difference, instead of he sending thank you message to Al-Jazeera, he wanted to bomb Al-Jazeera offices. Mr. Bush behavior is outlandish by all measurements. Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy died. Is Mr. Bush waiting another Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy to challenge him of his outlandish theory of wars?

Mr. Bush lacks real vision, the victory lies in the vision of the head of the UN nuclear watchdog agency Mohamed ElBaradei, who on Saturday received the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize, advocated a world free of atomic weapons and called on existing nuclear states to lead by example. “If we hope to escape self-destruction, then nuclear weapons should have no place in our collective conscience, and no role in our security,

We Americans have a duty, as patriots, to speak out when we find our government has gone astray.
Your extended rant is unseemly, coming from a foreign person. You're preaching to the choir.
I, personlly, find it offensive & don't want to hear anymore of it.
You would make better use of your time, as a Muslim, Hagee, by speaking out, in detail as you have done here, against Bin Laden & others of his ilk from your religion that have gone astray.
Our religion, Hagee, advises one to smite the board from his own eye before he attempts to smite the splinter in another's eye.

Many thanks for your valuable advise,

Osama, s family is close fried of Mr. Bush’s family

Mr. Bush is a right person to bring back Osama to be friend of America once again.

Osama was our man and we weaponries him to become sole super power.

He is same Osama who made us a sole super power.

We should accept his long peace truce and bring him back as our friend once again.

Islam is pure peace, one who wants to be winner should not have a belief in terrorism and invasions as both are equally guilty towards humanity meaning Osama and Bush are both in the same category towards the crimes against humanity. Wash your sins by turning to peace (Islam)

Turning towards peace (Islam) based on non-invasive and denouncing terror washes away all sins and then a person becomes like a newly born baby.

Jesus (son of marry) who is coming back from fourth haven, as one of the followers of prophet Muhammad, for salvation of the humanity, meaning If you are true follower of Jesus you are automatically follower of Islam (peace)

Christian missionaries are doing wonderful work in education and health areas all over the world. The Only objection Muslims have against them is they do not want to change their belief for Jesus as being Son of God as they believe in him as prophet of God.

Islam has no place for terrorism neither has a place for invasion of the countries to plunder the wealth of fellow human beings.

All the prophets came for guidance of humanity that includes prophet Muhammad, Moses, David, and Jesus. They all were Muslims according to Muslim faith and teachings of Quran and Islam.

A Muslim has to believe in all four original divine books sent by the God for the betterment of the humanity.

We also need to address the current administrations practice of throwing all environmental issues "under the bus". Oil companies, auto manufactures in particualr need top change their ways and the US public needs to invest in alternative fuel sources in order to cut our dependence on ALL fossil fuels.
And how about re-establishing an economy with a gold/silver backed currency again?

I don't think Censuring Bush is the right thing. Nothing short of impeachment is called for. Now with the snoopgate case it seems to me that Bush has clearly broken Constitutional law and many of the same articles of impeachment that were drafted for Nixon hold true for Bush.

This is from the man who was Bush's (The US's) treasury secretary at the time. If these documents do exist, it needs to be investigated...

"As treasury secretary, O'Neill was a permanent member of the National Security Council.
And that came up at this first meeting, says O’Neill, who adds that the discussion of Iraq continued at the next National Security Council meeting two days later.

He got briefing materials under this cover sheet. “There are memos. One of them marked, secret, says, ‘Plan for post-Saddam Iraq,’" adds Suskind, who says that they discussed an occupation of Iraq in January and February of 2001.

Based on his interviews with O'Neill and several other officials at the meetings, Suskind writes that the planning envisioned peacekeeping troops, war crimes tribunals, and even divvying up Iraq's oil wealth.

He obtained one Pentagon document, dated March 5, 2001, and entitled "Foreign Suitors for Iraqi Oilfield contracts," which includes a map of potential areas for exploration. "

Just a word about John Conyers. He supposedly wrote THE book on the 2004 Ohio vote frauds, which is very helpful to detail and archive.
However, I am curious why exactly:
this can be read at
The html of that pdf can be read at

If you noticed that Schwarzenegger was one of the key speakers at Bush's NY 2004 convention, it might make you wonder why the Governor from CA was one of the few people chosen to be a main speaker.

He clearly says he would like to be the Pres. (and he has the benefit of recognition in regards to the huge amount of electoral votes CA holds.

"Normally, even a first-term California governor with Schwarzenegger's poll numbers and star power would be talked about as a potential future presidential candidate. But being foreign-born, he can't run. There are attempts to change that. (my note.. yes Conyers is one)

He is ineligible to run for president. Would he like to be able to? Would he like to see an amendment to the Constitution?

"Yes. Absolutely," says Schwarzenegger. "I think, you know, because why not? Like with my way of thinking, you always shoot for the top."

Anything else...
He has already met with Buffet and Lord Rothschild at a meeting with top financiers, and the Rothschild Mansion.

"After two days of handshakes and drinks he’ll have boosted his credibility with the men who may one day bankroll his political ambitions."

go to for a lot of reasons why Arnold would be a harmful President.

To end, here is a quote he made, from US News and World Report
"In a profile of Arnold Schwarzenegger that appeared in U.S. News in November 1990, the Terminator elaborated on his nascent political views: "My relationship to power and authority is that I'm all for it. People need somebody to watch over them," he explained. "Ninety-five percent of the people in the world need to be told what to do and how to behave."

Forget Arnold.
Did you know that Bush, also, introduced new legislation to allow more than 2 terms for one President, so that he can stay in office for a 3rd term--especially since he can count on the electronic voting machines to put him in again just like 2004?
Oh yea, baby.
It's been sitting in some committee waiting to be pushed through by the Republican majority when no one is looking, for maybe a year or so.

Impeachment wont bring home the men and women killed in a needless war in Iraq or those many wounded and crippled for life: or the Iraquis who died in the cross fire and are maimed and wounded. HOwever, it will send a signal to anyone else who in the near future attempts to tamper with our consititution and violates the integrity and trust of the citizens of this great country. Where do I sign the petition!!!!!






Though I think we can find a case for corruption across party line.. this has become a farce of our ideals. When the government has to fear its own people.. whom should we really be looking at.
We can not allow this type of mockery of our laws and ideals by those in the highest ranks to be defiled.
History will be the judge.. how will we be looked upon by our grand children

I am convinced that Bush can be impeached and should be, but what bothers me even more is the number of my fellow countrymen that STILL back him. What does it say of their moral beliefs or even intelligence level for that matter? It just seems to me , given the drama in the White House, that it is occupied by privileged "trailer trash". (my apologies to those that reside in manufactured housing)

These hearings should encompass the involvement of Haliburton Corporation as to how and why they were awarded the contracts for the supply of our troops in Iraq, and the eventual restoration of the country after the war is complete. On no less than 3 occasions, Haliburton has intentionally over billed the government and has received only a slap on the wrist for it. Please proceed full speed ahead!

Bush's stupidity, arrogance and criminality in so many areas, demand that for the good of the country, he be impeached! He is the worst President in my lifetime with no close second. He lies with impunity, ruining our economy and our standing in the world. He has wasted the lives of our soldiers, injured and disabled thousands upon thouands of American servicemen and women, and killed even more innocent Iraqis. How bad does it have to get before Bush goes?

The Axis of Evil hides in the Bush's. Bush and his religion are anti-life, anti-education, and guilty of inciting hatre crimes against humanity.

Impeach Bush !!!

The American Citizens Call For A Full,Complete Independent Investigations Into The Infrigement Of The Civil Liberties and Rights Of The People Of The United States.We will no longer stand for further Lies,Coverups,Abuses,and non cooperation with Congress nate,and the People Of The United States.Uphold our Our Constitution and the Bill Of Rights.Put A Stop To The Misuse Of Power...Michael Sherbert.

George W. Bush is a "wanna be" dictator who has driven this country into the ground. He is a liar and a traitor and should at the very least, be impeached if not imprisoned.

This figure, for lack of calling him a man ( el presidente loco, big brother, le dauphin), should have been impeached the first time he used the supreme court to become the nations grinning clown. The rest falls under the category sweeping the capital of garbage.

God save the remainder of this Great Nation from the antics of that madman !

Don't forget the "religious test" of Harriet Miers' confirmation. It doesn't matter if she got the job or not. The "religious test" was performed on national TV.

It has taken 5 years for people to wake up about this president. He is fighting for democracy in Irag and trashing democracy here. They have lied and lied and covered up everything they have done. It is time that we get rid of these people that think they are king. They have destroyed our country and put it into poverty while making the rich richer on the backs of everyone else. We have to ban together to get them out before we have no country left to save. This is so much more important then the BS about sex in the white house.

I am ashamed to be an American for the first time in my life. We waged war on a country that was in no way, connected to 9/11. It was based on lies, deceit, greed, and revenge, not facts. We blindly followed the lying bastards in the Bleak House on every turn. We have allowed our education system to be gutted, the environment raped, the economy wrecked, most employment opportunities to become slave wages or outsourced to a foreign country, and our Civil Liberties to be taken away. The ultra-rich have become even more powerful and rich. The fundamentalist christian radicals have been brainwashed to believe in this jihadist brand of christianity, no different than the Taliban. With their help, we all will lose our freedom to worship in our own religion. They will not stop until they establish a state religion..............greed.
Let's take back our country before the rest of the world lashes back at us as the tyrants we are. Iraq is nothing but an act of one-upmanship by Shrub. His daddy did not get Saddam, so he has to show he can, Texas style.
Wake up you brain-dead Americans. We have lost our future. Our future must be based on education, health, living wages, justice, and LIBERTY! Impeach the bastards. Make them responsible for their lies and the blood lost. Impeach, remove, and jail. Bring our troops home now.

It is about time and I am glad a man of great standing from my state, Michigan is getting the ball rolling. I am aboard!!

It is clear that the president and vice president have violated the constitution. They should be impeached.

I couldn't AGREE more with you!!

Hello everyone. LETS MOVE IT NOW! I am so disgusted about what's going on to the point that i actually shake from being upset. We have got to take our country back the fastest way possible before it will be completely destroyed altogether. All of what they did has caused me to be very highly ashamed of the fact that i am an american. Lets persevere to get this impeachment done now.

the whole entire 5 plus years of this administration has been the wore 5 years i have witnessed. i am 53 and remember some bad moments in america-but these facists are absolutely the worse- impeach all of them-now-

It is way past time for those members of Congress that are stepping forward to exercise some back bone and do what needs to be done.
Bush and Cheney are bullies and need to be treated like bullies.

It's long overdue for a serious investigation into Bush's illegal policies regarding his war on Iraq and just about everything related to it. We cannot even take care of our own people following Hurricane Katrina, and yet we are wasting billions and billions of dollars for a lost cause in Iraq. President Bush is supposed to be the President of the USA and not Iraq. What about the needs of the poor, the uneducated, the needy, the ones without adequaate or any healthcare. That is the real terrorism!!

It is time to force "King George" to accept his culpability in helping to destroy this country. The damage he has created will take decades if ever to repair.

We need a strong, progessive leader in this country to help bring America back to the ideals it was founded upon.

Never in the history of America has there been such a stubborn, idoit, in the White House. He's taken Executive Priviledge to the limits of the law and has failed. We Americans will not take this anymore. He's abusing our free country, spying on it's citizens, it's a total disgrace and an afront to our civil liberities.

He is more and more the ghost of McCarthy past! Please those powers that be, get rid of this blight on our wonderful Country!!

We need to be clear that in addition to the charges listed that you add the most recent charges of "unauthorized and illegal spying on the American people". This act alone is one of the biggest threats to our Constitution and our God given freedoms...

All I can say is impeach him and all his cabinet now!!!!!!!!!

We need to bring the light of day to the current goings-on in the Bush administration.

I was hoping the majority of our troops would be home for Christmas. Are the Americans training the only Iraqi soldiers that don't know how to fight? I feel our country is dissentigrating, while Iraq is being restored, after we bombed them. I read about the people in Louisiana that are without homes for the holidays and my heart goes out to them. One-third of our checks go for taxes and our community is suffering. This war is being supported by our national debt and it will never end. Fight for Freedom, is the oxymoron statement of the year. Impeach Bush!!!

Even many on the right are jumping ship because they see the fall of the Bush Regime. It is a matter of principal to put it down in history of an impeachment, not just riding it out until 2008. Question is: who would then become president? Cheney will also fall. I belive the Speaker of the House is next, Dennis Hastert is a scary thought too... there is definitely a long road ahead whatever happens.

The Bush regime is the worst enemy that America has ever had. Its lies, excesses, atrocities, acts of undermining the Constitution and Americans' rights are not only evident, but obvious. I recommend that we try Bush and the REAL director of the FASCIST government that has been installed in a de facto way...Dick Cheney. The grounds on which I think that the Bush-Cheney horror should be tried are; abuse of power, influence peddling, deceit, undermining the Constitution, breach of international law, and mass-murder. After these "snakes" are imprisoned or worse...we need to get about trying all of those who have implemented their heinous crimes while being entrusted with leadership of our country...something like the Nuremburg trials. Cheney-Bush has followed the Hitlerian playbook. Let their reign of horror end in their total demise politically and historically. The time has past for just discussion!

Perry Metzger, cryptographer, put together an excellent piece to connect the President's [King's]statement with the legal parameters he has clearly violated. He states:
"As you may all be aware, the *New York Times* has reported, and the
administration has admitted, that Pesident of the United States apparently ordered the NSA to conduct surveillance operations against U.S. citizens without prior permission of the secret court known as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (the "FISC"). This is in clear contravention of 50 USC 1801-50 USC 1811, a portion of the U.S. code that provides for clear criminal penalties for violations. See:

Join me in passing this info to local newspapers and Congressional reps. Adam Smith thanked me for including the legal text which is about eight pages and is at the above website.

Perry Metzger, the moderator of the Cryptography listerv and well-known as an authority on network communications protocols and internet security, wrote a rare editorial piece Monday about last week's revelation that President George W. Bush authorized secret domestic spying
( by the National Security
Agency.[1] -- Despite Bush's claim that he acted legally
(, Metzger, citing chapter and verse, writes that "The law unambiguously disagrees with him." -- The president, he writes, is guilty of "a federal crime, punishable by up to five years imprisonment." -- In other words, "the administration has actually crossed the line into a crystal clear felony." -- "Ours is a government of laws, not of men," Metzger comments. "That means if the President disagrees with a law or feels that it is insufficient, he still must obey it. Ignoring the law is illegal, even for the President. The
President may ask Congress to change the law, but meanwhile he must follow it." -- But "[o]ur President has chosen to declare himself above the law, a dangerous precedent that could do great harm to our country." -- Metzger concludes: "For the sake of yourself, your children and your children's children, you cannot allow this to stand. -- Call your Senators and your Congressman. Demand a full investigation, both by Congress and by a special prosecutor, of the actions of the Administration and the NSA. Say that the rule of law is all that stands between us and barbarism. Say that we live
in a democracy, not a kingdom, and that our elected officials are not above the law. The President is not a King. Even the President cannot participate in a felony and get away with it. Demand that even the President must obey the law. -- Tell your friends to do the same. Tell them to tell their friends to do the same. Then, call back next week and the week after and the week after that until something happens. Mark it in your calendar so you don't forget about it. Politicians have short memories, and Congress is about to recess for Christmas, so you must not allow this to be forgotten. Keep at them until something happens." --

I back all Congressmen, Senators,and individuals who will courageously stand up to the dictator bush. bush's/cheney's high crimes and misdemeanors allow for all Americans to do everything in their power to put a stop to these thieves, liars, and murderers before it is too late for our country. Thank you Mr. Conyers for taking the high road despite the battle looming. As we all know they will pull out all stops to hang on to their dictatorship with the billions of dollars that they have yet to steal.

You people are SICK! (or just plan dumb asses)
Bush is protecting your ass, you dummy!

It sure looks like it’s working to me, I say, "Keep on tapping", "Keep me safe", “I have nothing to hide

well let me see if I can explain this in a language that even the ignorant can understand.This is not just about wire taps,it's about civil rights (that's those little rights guarenteed)by the constitution that bush has made it a point to step on and violate every chance that he has had,so what's next will the republican KKK take out their ropes and grease them up to leave strange fruit hanging from telephone polls and bridges?or maybe you think that the women should loose the right to vote or maybe you think that bush should have the power to change your religion and force you to attend a church of his choice,or maybe your vote should depend on how much money that you have,take your pick I'm sure that bush isn't finished yet,unless the democratic congress finds enough back bone and charges him with the many crimes of which he is without doubt guilty,and the senate impeaches him.

Boy are you one sorry excuse for a person, Bush is a very evil person all
. all he thinks of is the rich, who is the dumb (blank)? I am not a Democrate either but i wouldn't vote for Bush when he ran but would certainly sign for his impeachment. He is not smart enough to lead a nation. I wish he was back in Texas. He has opened a can of worms and has no idea how to get rid of them. I think they are all in his cabinet and think they all should be ousted. Maybe you are one of his rich lying cronies. Hey Merry Christmas

I'm a lifelong LIBERTARIAN. I have never been a "liberal" or a "conservative".

I have two questions for you:

I. If you have nothing to hide, why don't you at least put your name on your writing, as I do?Many do not for fear of your "champion of freedom".

II. Now that you all safe and secure under the protection of your all-powerful, absolute dictator (from the enemies he conveniently manufactured precisely for that purpose), who is going to protect you from him?

"They that give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."---Benjamin Franklin

The only true security starts with LIMITED government.Government that meddles not in the affairs of it's citizens,nor in the affairs of foreign nations.

It finishes with GLOBAL FREE MARKET CAPITALISM, where each individual is FREE to produce and exchange products and services with any and all of his fellow human beings based EXCLUSIVELY on MUTUAL VOLUNTARY agreement; where NO ONE can call upon government to skew the level economic playing field in their favor.

Your fascist scum "president"'s steel tariffs, for example, should be CAPITAL OFFENSE enough to merit EXECUTION.

This is the only tenable course to peace and security on a world-wide scale,for now would quickly evolve so intricate and keen a gobal economic interdependency as to obviate the saleability of war.

"Crisis is the rallying cry of the tyrant"---James Madison

"good fences make good neighbors"---Robert Frost

"If goods do not cross borders, armies will"---Frederic Bastiat

Would you feel the same way about the wire tapping if it were a Dem in the WhiteHouse? Y/N. You "Mr. Anonymous" are proof positive that YOUR President is a divider, not a uniter. You can't even find a way to disagree in a civil manner. Have you ever taken an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America? If you did you certainly didn't read it or comprehend it or take it seriously. Being outraged because of a very real Document (Downing Street Memo) or feeling angry about a branch of Government doing things on their own without Constitutional Checks & Balances, isn't being a dumbass but rather "PATRIOTIC". I thought I was a Republican from the great state of New Hampshire, not anymore. The real abortion of our great democracy didn't start with the general election in 2000 but really occurred in the Republican Primary in 2000. That is when I woke up! I still cannot fathom how a Hero (McCain) vs A Rich Monkey (BUSH) lost?? From a PR standpoint it makes absolutely no sense? I realized then that the Republican party isn't a party of the people but a party only for the elite & the stupid (yourself included). They hand picked this clown because they knew he would pay them off if elected. Whereas McCain wanted to reform the way campaigns are funded, they(the Elite) saw this as a threat to the only way they know how to get elected, money, money, money & more money.
By the way hello Mr.Bush, I know it must be Mr. Bush that posted this message because he is about the only person I know that went to Yale & still speaks like an ignorant dumbass that bearly made it out of the 8th grade.

The fact that the New York Times sat on this story for a year is what helped to get this prancing little dictator re-elected. Without their assistance in the hoodwinking of America, our country may not have undergone many of the recent disasterous changes.This man needs to be impeached, and the media needs to be held accountable for their role in the shredding of our Constitution and the damage to our democracy.
