Impeachment: A Moral Imperative

(As published on OpEdNews November 15th, 2006)

I am hearing the following specious argument from various sources: Now that the "good guys" will rule the roost, all is well in D.C. and it is best just to ignore the past and let Pied Piper Pelosi guide us into an American Eden full of buttercups and lollipops and free beer for all.

I am also hearing a veritable Greek chorus of: "Impeachment will never happen" from those that actually do think it would be a great idea if it were possible.

That ain't the way a participatory democratic republic works, folks.

No doubt the future is suddenly much, much brighter. House Representative Pelosi's (D-CA) "First 100 Days" plan is a good one, certainly. The talk of finally extricating ourselves from the Iraq debacle is welcome news as is discussion of reversing the potential horrors of the Military Commissions Act and other horrible recent pieces of legislation.

The Democratic Congress' positive agenda will move our country forward, repairing some of the damage done and innovatively breaking new ground as well. Even actual conservatives can look forward to the end of this NeoCon tangent and work for the restoration of fiscal conservativism, citizen privacy, "States Rights" and smaller, less invasive government with a balance of power among the three branches again.

Choosing to ignore the past, however, would be as naive as a victim of domestic assault not wanting to press charges. The result will eventually be more of the same. You are just going to get beaten again, and probably much more viciously. It is not a matter of "if", but "when" - maybe next time to death.

We were bitten by a snake. The wound must be lanced and the venom removed, or it will leech into our collective bloodstream and inevitably target our national heart. Allowing this wound to "heal over" not only won't lead to a healthy future, it will assure the exact opposite.

Crimes have been committed. Not a few. Very, very many. Not just the break-in of a campaign office or a President getting lipstick on his cigar in the Oral Office. People have died because of these crimes - the lives of hundreds of thousands of families irretrievably destroyed. Some of these crimes are gross violations of the Geneva Accords and Nuhremberg Principles - identical to those for which Nazis were convicted and put to death. Our national treasury has been looted to the benefit of crony corporations. Our international reputation is in shambles. Our global Intelligence capabilities have been severely, treasonously compromised. The Constitution has had its throat cut and is lying in the gutter with no promise of a single Democratic Senator bending a knee to save its life.

The investigative work into prewar lies and related matters by Representative John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI). is already well underway. An excellent preliminary treatise: "George W. Bush versus the U.S. Constitution" has been researched and published by his staff.

The Center for Constitutional Rights, The Bush Crimes Commission, World Can't Wait, After Downing Street and ImpeachforPeace.org, among others, have laid out remarkably comprehensive reports on the crimes of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and their Administration.

The case for impeachment is undeniably solid. Conyers will head the Judiciary Committee with the threat of full subpoena power if needed to rapidly confirm the crimes we are already aware of. More crimes are likely to be unearthed in the process as the antiseptic of truth throws light on this dark era.

New head of the Government Reform Committee, Representative Henry Waxman (D-CA) has said that "I'm going to have an interesting time because (the GRC) has jurisdiction over everything..." and "The most difficult thing will be to pick and choose." (AP).

We are a nation of laws. No American is above the law. The appropriate remedy for the temporary resident public servants in federal offices who violate the law is impeachment. We aren't shopping for shoes here, Condi. This isn't an optional step. This is prosecution of law deeply seated in the Constitution of the United States as it used to exist - indeed our very, inalienable moral fiber. To not enforce these laws is to set ourselves up for history to repeat itself in short order. To not undo the new preposterously overgrown Executive authority is to invite some future President - ANY future President - to snap his or her fingers and become a virtual dictator in a heartbeat. To "do nothing" would be a slap in the face of every patriot who bled for our freedoms. Give me liberty.

The Nancy Pelosi-led (D-CA) Senate will continue to advance a positive agenda in other committees and votes as the information made public during House hearings led by Waxman and Conyers should quickly make an impeachment recommendation unavoidable. In short order a recommendation to impeach should reach the floor of the House for a vote.

A simple majority in the House voting to recommend impeachment to the Senate should be a "slam dunk" after the public finally more fully awakens from its FAUXnews-induced slumber. They will become apprised of the full devious intent of these traitors and DEMAND that their Representatives sign onto the bill that will replace H.R. 635 - which expired along with the Bill of Rights and Habeas Corpus as the heinous 109th Congress recessed.

There is the kicker. It is up to us. It is up to you. The "People's House" must hear from us. Your Representative must hear from you. Four Hundred and Thirty Five Representatives must be buried in letters, e-mails, phone calls and visits demanding thorough investigations leading to impeachment. If they "drag anchor" on us, then veteran and first-time protesters must take up permanent residence outside their offices and expose their complicity.

What will this mean? Does it mean we'll get another "President Dick"? Hardly. Vice President Cheney, who has indicated he may ignore subpoenas, will be triple indicted for every "W" crime revealed and could easily be convicted through "open source" evidence discovered by a googling High School "C" student. Richard "Stand Down" Cheney may quickly resign for "health reasons" in hope of a rapid "skapegoat" conviction and a Presidential pardon for confirmed felonies before the flood of evidence reaches the top office. This would force Bush into a situation akin to his recent campaigning where some candidates were "no-shows" for fear of adverse association with this President and his now 31% approval rating.

How eager are national Republicans facing re-election to have this President, whose approval rating has scuttled to a depth to which neither Nixon nor Clinton ever suffered, to be the national face of their party in the two year run-up to the election of 2008 which commenced November 8th?

Of course Pelosi, Democratic National Committee Chair Howard Dean and even Conyers have downplayed impeachment - as they should. It isn't up to them. It isn't up to the House. It isn't up to the new Democratic Senate majority. An impeachment conviction requires a two thirds vote in the Senate. It will be up to the Republican Senate minority.

More to the fact, it is up to you. You are the one you have been waiting for. Your vote on November 7th was critical. Your commitment to holding this Administration comprehensively accountable is absolutely essential.

Senate Republicans, if handed a recommendation to impeach by the House will be faced with a very tough choice as the world watches them confront a most stubborn, arrogant and unrepentent Connecticut Cowboy President and his mephistophelian inner circle:

a). Fight impeachment and continue to be revealed as rubber-stamping, lickspittle enablers of Treasonous War Criminals who were intent on a heavy-handed crackdown and takeover of all things American. Vote "No" and get washed out in the second Blue Wave of 2008.

b). Play the "I had no idea all of this was going on" card to desperately distance themselves from Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, Abramoff, Ney, DeLay, Foley, et al, vote "Yes" and possibly hang onto their cushy position of power through the next election cycle.

Would you go down with this Titanic?

Impeachment isn't a good or bad idea. Impeachment is a moral imperative. It is the proper remedy prescribed by our founding fathers for circumstances precisely such as these. Impeachment is essential for the hope of future health of our nation.

We the People must impeach those who regard America, its military, its electorate and a soverign foreign nation simply resources to exploit in order to fatten their bank accounts and expand their personal power.

Leaders all over the nation are calling out for justice. Follow, or get the hell out of our way.

Why yes it is! The same banana bunch of nutty leftists that have been doing this shit their entire lives:

[html]The Party's Propaganda Directorate praises Comrade Rudolph's revolutionary zeal and will make sure he gets a double ration of two (2) sacks of beets per month after the Revolution. That will make him almost equal to the Category Three Party Organizers in the provinces.

We agree on all points of his denunciation letter written in the best traditions of Comrade Vyshinskiy, whose theory of Revolutionary Jurisprudence laid the foundation for Stalin's public trials of 1930s.
Andrey Januaryevich Vyshinskiy
In 1935 he became Prosecutor General of the USSR, the legal mastermind of Joseph Stalin's Great Purge. He put a theoretical legal base under the treason trials. One of the principles of Vyshinsky's theory was that criminal law is a tool of the class struggle. His monograph that justifies this postulate, Theory of Judicial Proofs in Soviet Justice, was awarded the Stalin Prize in 1947. He presided at the major show trials of the Great Purge, lashing its defenseless victims with vituperative, sometimes cruelly witty rhetoric.

The positions he held include those of vice-premier (1939–1944), deputy Commissar for Foreign Affairs (1940–1949), Minister for Foreign Affairs (1949-1953), Academician of the Soviet Academy of Sciences from 1939, and permanent representative of the Soviet Union to the United Nations. He died in New York and was buried in Red Square.
The only thing we would like to change in this excellent denunciation is the wish list of punishments. They need to be expanded as follows:

<p><b>WISH LIST:
Should Bush be hanged or get the chair once convicted of war crimes?</b></p> <ul> <li>Electric Chair</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Hanging</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Feed him feet first into an <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hussein's ... d_shredder" target="_blank">industrial shredder</a> slowly, so that it chews him up inch by inch, Saddam style</li></ul> <ul> <li>All of the above. Also spray the entire state of Texas with a <a href="https://www.cfr.org/publication/9553/" target="_blank">combination of chemical agents including Sarin and mustard gas</a> and impose the non-Democrat poll tax (jizya) on the remaining Red States until they convert to voting Democrat</li></ul> <ul> <li>I'm a pacifist and oppose capital punishment - except for Bush and those corporatist fascists who voted for him in 2004 and deserve to be in mass graves - all <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._pres ... tion,_2004" target="_blank">62,040,610</a> of them. </li></ul> <ul> <li>I'm Jimmy Carter and I'm just here to watch</li> </ul>[/html]

So this guy wants to impeach Clinton again (along with the whole Democratic party)?  Because Bosnai, Serbia, the bombing of Iraq throughout the 90s, Operation Desert Fox, Congressionally authorized regiem change, fixed elections in the Former Yugoslavia, cruise-missiling Afghanistan, bombing Sudan, et were all part of the Clinton Foriegn policy.  Domestically, we had FBI File Gate, IRS "audits", non-warrented wire taps of AMERICANS (not terrorists calling INTO America), use of federal troops to crush a few hundered religious 'fanatics" (but allegedly Christians, not Islamic), and several dozen other examples.

After 2000, add the Dubai ports deal (Clinton is a paid agent of Dubai); breaking the foriegn relations act: Pelosi, Clinton, Reid, Durbin, and others; illegal connections to lobby firms (but owned by Democrats, so I guess that's just dandy), and much more.

[html]Bringing this one back from the dead.

Having taken a break from The Cube, I've been busy catching up with some of this "post election" stuff and the inevitable troll attacks. The level of fait accompli in most of these impeachment arguments is quite revealing. We are told "Crimes have been committed. Not a few. Very, very many." If we doubt this, all we have to do is Google. The evidence has already been compiled and the conclusions reached by a number of inter-related leftist organizations (World Can't Wait, Impeach for Peace, et al) and a few like-minded Representitives (Conyers, Waxman, etc.). The issue of impeachment is (was as of late '06) simply a matter of going through the formal motions to reach a predetermined result. This Mikael guy even has it all scripted out. Now nearly a year later, it is interesting to note how little of this has actually come to pass. Well, you managed to get a raise in the minimum wage, harass the Attorney General until he resigned and attempted to threaten one of your best known citizen critics over demonstrably false allegations about something he said. Nice work!

- I love the faux nod to "actual conservatives" and the various agendas they'll be able to pursue (but not implement, of course). I've been watching this attempt to lure Conservative and "values" voters into the "blue" for almost two years now. The number of alleged Reaganite, pro-life-guns-God-America Democrats seems to grow with each election. I've started jokingly calling this "Jesus loves Socialism" and cite southern Democrat examples such as Harold Ford <s>III</s> uh, Jr. (When I was a kid, I seem to remember Harold the Elder being Jr.), Congressman Heath Shuler and current MS gubernatorial candidate John Eaves.-

Then there are the usual "bad as the Nazis" equivocations and swipes at the proles' "Fauxnews-induced slumber". I wonder if it ever occurs to people like this that an absence of support for their pet causes and beliefs is not a lack of knowledge but a lack of acceptance? This is David Brock's Republican Noise Machince thesis in action. Fox News, "hate radio" and right wing blogs are propaganda organs that lead the "Sheeple" astray from the Truth. It simply never computes that intelligent people are capable of applying sober reasoning and analysis to an issue and reach a different conclusion than they have.

Nearly a year later and do I think that Mikael is any more humble, any less smug? No, of course not. Is he still "damn proud... once again" to be an American Citizen? I don't know the man, so I can't answer that. Would you like for me to guess? ;)[/html]

I was looking around for why everyone here keeps referencing The Silent Killer and the mimesheviks. It all has come full circle :). Before anyone says so, I was not on the Cube before this article came out, so I had no background, but my curiosity got the best of me finally.

Well, she is the Queen Bee, and it wouldn't surprise me if she paid RethugliKKKans to off Reid Stick (hahaha. . .)

So Bush freeing a at least two nations, making the Middle East a little safer (little being the key word), creating a new ally over there besides Israel, which by the way, go Israel! Bush sending our troops to topple a terrorizing dictator who's actions mirror that of Stalin, a personal hero of The Mime no doubt, making a once hostile area safe for people to go out and buy something at the market with less fear of shootings, a better place for kids to play outside, all of this IS BAD?!

And yet Clinton's actions of lying under oath are O.K.? Before you say "Sex is a personal thing" I'm not talking about sex, I'm talking about how he continually lies about his actions. One other thing before I wrap this up, people like The Silent Killer, the mimesheviks, moonbats, the MSM and others like them have covered Clinton's ass from day one of his impeachment trial and beyond. I want to congradulate you on your actions.

Truly, liberal thinking is backwards.

Two other things leap out at me:
