Arcata City Council “2006 New Years Resolution
By Shea Drefs, Arizona State University
An unknown naked young woman was spotted riding a bicycle around the Memorial Union Wednesday, police and witnesses said.
Tempe resident Elizabeth Brown, 23, said she was eating outside the MU at about 11 a.m. when she saw the woman riding toward the union.
"She was just wearing a Sun Devils baseball cap and a pair of sneakers," she said.
The woman had "Pro-choice" airbrushed on one leg, "Impeach Bush" on the other and "No oil" on her chest, Brown said.
This guide is being provided to suggest ideas and actions that you can take to help ensure the impeachment of President George Bush and Vice President Richard Cheney. We encourage you to use any or all of these tools and to be creative.

White House dismisses move as political ploy

WASHINGTON — Rep. John W. Olver supports an investigation into whether President Bush should face impeachment for possibly manipulating intelligence to support the invasion of Iraq.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Congressman John Olver supports an investigation into whether President Bush should face impeachment for possibly manipulating intelligence to support the invasion of Iraq.
Olver and another Massachusetts congressman -- John Tierney -- have signed onto a bill to create a House select committee to conduct the investigation. In all, 26 Democrats have co-sponsored the measure, which was introduced in December by Michigan congressman John Conyers.

Correction: In the previous articles I noted that Supervisor Chris Daly’s proposed Resolution to Investigate/Impeach George Bush and Dick Cheney would follow the 30-day rule before it could be heard in committee. My apologies for the confusion.

Work with the campaign office
By Carol Wolman, http://www.opednews.com
Congresspeople have two offices, a congressional office, which handles their current business, and a campaign office, which handles their upcoming election, which occurs every two years. Staying in Congress is a prime goal, as committee assignments and power depend on seniority,- the number of times the person is re-elected. Therefore, the campaign office is ongoing. Often the same staff covers both offices locally.

Those blasphemously "liberal" media outlets have once again deprived the American public of widespread coverage of nothing less than startling poll results. The non-partisan polling firm Zogby International last month found that by a margin of 52 percent to 43 percent, Americans want Congress to consider impeaching President Bush "if he wiretapped American citizens without a judge's approval."
Our Representatives must act on behalf of "we the people".

Impeachment is a legal process similar to arraignment, whereby a public official is charged with criminal conduct. In the case of the president and vice president, the House of Representatives acts as the prosecuting attorney, for the people. Its job is to investigate allegations of wrongdoing and, if warranted, to bring formal charges. The case then goes to the Senate, which acts as judge to find the official guilty or not guilty.

by-passing all Committees, and impossible to stop

1.-Impeachment is where people's energy is, all over the country. If we want a large and growing and democratic movement, we should listen to our members.
2.-Exposing the lies and the crimes related to this war is, more than anything else, building opposition to the war, as well as to future wars. There is no better way to expose the crimes than to demand an investigation that could lead to impeachment. (As demanded by H Res 635.)

Twenty years ago, Neil Postman wrote in "Amusing Ourselves to Death" that meaningful political discourse had become impossible due to our ridiculously short attention spans, a phenomenon he attributed to the impact of television. Today, we continue to marinate in a flood of context-free entertainment/news fragments and sound bites, leaving us profoundly distracted and politically incoherent (but well-entertained). The bad news has only recently become apparent. Unprecedented abuses of political power are occurring on our watch. The abuses are getting more blatant by the day, yet we remain complacent. We're in danger of becoming the biggest banana republic in the world.

As the crimes of the Bush administration mount, it becomes increasingly difficult to avoid talk of impeachment.
As a result of his continuing abuse of power, the impeachment option is making its way from the margin to the mainstream. Legal scholars on the left and the right argue that Bush may have committed "high crimes and misdemeanors," as stated in Article II, Section 4, of the Constitution.
In the 2004 election, Karl Rove masterfully used gay marriage as the catalyst to drive normally apathetic voters to the polls and achieve historic turnout. It worked. Republicans of all ages, shapes and sizes who couldn't care less about manufactured WMD intelligence, record deficits and gas/oil prices, CIA leaks and warrantless wiretappings raced to polling places across America just to keep homosexuals from tying the knot.
The new issue of Harper's magazine, http://www.harpers.org , has a cover story (not online yet) by the editor Lewis Lapham laying out the case for impeachment. And Harper's has planned the following event:

The Nation -- The list of House members who have signed on as cosponsors of U.S. Representative John Conyers'resolution calling for the establishment of select committee that would examine whether President Bush and Vice President Cheney should face impeachment continues to grow. Four more members of the House have added their names to the resolution, bringing to 27 the total number of representatives, including Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, who are calling for the creation of "a select committee to investigate the administration's intent to go to war before congressional authorization, manipulation of pre-war intelligence, encouraging and countenancing torture, retaliating against critics, and to make recommendations regarding grounds for possible impeachment."
