STOP THE WAR! February 19, 2009 9:07 PM

Troops Out Now Coalition


March on the Pentagon -  March 21
March on Wall Street -  April 3 & 4


No New Troops To Afghanistan
End War and Occupation
Bring all the Troops Home NOW!


The Troops Out Now Coalition condemns the recent announcement that President Obama has ordered 17 thousand more troops to Afghanistan.

The people voted overwhelmingly for an end to war and occupation. The world demands that it end. Most importantly, the people of Afghanistan, Iraq, and Palestine demand that it end.

To send more U.S. soldiers to Afghanistan amidst new revelations of U.S. military war crimes, and at a time when working people here a facing an unprecedented economic crisis is an outrage.   Every day, thousands are being laid off or thrown out of their homes - we need money for housing and jobs, not for war and endless occupation.

Escalating the war in Afghanistan is a betrayal of the faith that the people put in the new president to stop Bush's war on the world.

We must continue to mobilize to demand:
  • No new troops!
  • Immediate withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Iraq and Afghanistan
  • Money for Human Needs Not War!
Join the Troops Out Now Coalition and many other groups at the March on the Pentagon, Saturday March 21 and the March on Wall St. April 3 &4

Indict Bush and Cheney

The National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance (NCNR) is planning a protest at the U.S. Justice Department on November 10th. Its members are willing to risk going to jail to urge the indictment of Bush and Cheney for war crimes. The very least the rest of us can do is to contact the Justice Department and urge Attorney General Mukasey to meet with NCNR.

In September organizers from NCNR sent a letter to Mukasey urging the indictment of Bush and Cheney and requesting a meeting to discuss the matter. Mukasey has not responded. Please sign this petition, which will send an email to Mukasey asking him to meet with NCNR.

Then mark November 10, 2008, on your calendar and plan to either phone the Department of Justice or join us at the protest there at noon. The phone numbers are 202-514-2000 and 202-353-1555. Stay involved in the campaign to convict Bush and Cheney.

SIGN THE PETITION

Impeachment step 2 July 29, 2008 1:40 PM

Impeachment Step 2

Tell your Representatives to co-sponsor  Rep. Kucinich's 35 Articles of Impeachment:
http://democrats.com/35-articles-of-impeachment

After more than three years of grassroots pressure from true patriots like you, Congress finally took step 1 towards impeaching George W. Bush for his High Crimes by holding a "non-impeachment hearing" last Friday.

Witnesses led by Dennis Kucinich, Elliot Adams, Rocky Anderson, Bob Barr, Vincent Bugliosi, Bruce Fein, Maurice Hinchey, and Elizabeth Holtzman presented an overwhelming case for impeachment. Watch the individual videos and the wrap-up by American News Project.

Most of the Democrats who attended the hearings were excellent . If one of these is your Representative, or if you contributed to their campaigns, please call 202-224-3121 to thank them for supporting impeachment: Dennis Kucinich, Robert Wexler, Tammy Baldwin, Keith Ellison, Maurice Hinchey, Sheila Jackson-Lee, and Hank Johnson.

Chairman John Conyers insisted it was not an "impeachment hearing." But he also said, "I believe the evidence on these matters is both credible and substantial and  warrant the response of the executive branch, under oath if at all possible... Let me add, we are not done yet, and we do not intend to go away until we achieve the accountability that Congress is entitled to and the American people deserve ."

And by the end of the hearing, even the see-no-evil Republican witnesses admitted Congress should consider impeachment. So what stands in the way of  real impeachment hearings? 

1. 228 Democrats (and 199 Republicans) who have not co-sponsored Articles of Impeachment against George Bush. Tell your Representatives to co-sponsor Rep. Kucinich's 35 Articles of Impeachment:
http://democrats.com/35-articles-of-impeachment

(Continued below)

 July 29, 2008 1:40 PM

(continued from above)

2. Key Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee who do not support impeachment.

a. Impeachment Hamlets: Bobby Scott, Zoe Lofgren, and Jerry Nadler believe Bush committed impeachable offfenses, but they are terrified to support impeachment. Call them to find out why they can't make up their minds:
http://www.causecaller.com/wiki/Judiciary_Impeachment_Hamlets

b. AWOL Democrats: These members showed their contempt for the Constitution (and their constituents) by not even attending the July 25 hearing: Howard Berman, Rick Boucher, Artur Davis, Bill Delahunt, Luis Gutierrez, Linda Sanchez, Betty Sutton, Maxine Waters, Anthony Weiner. Call them to find out why they failed to do their jobs - and when they will support impeachment:
http://www.causecaller.com/wiki/Judiciary_Impeachment_AWOL

c. Impeachment opponents: Adam Schiff, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and Mel Watt believe none of Bush's High Crimes are impeachable. Call them to find out why they have betrayed their Oath of Office:
http://www.causecaller.com/wiki/Judiciary_Impeachment_Opponents

3. House Democratic "Leaders" who oppose impeachment: Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, Caucus Chair Rahm Emanuel, Whip Jim Clyburn, and DCCC chair Chris Van Hollen believe impeachment would hurt Democrats in November. Call them to say serious impeachment hearings will expose Republican High Crimes and help Democrats at all levels:
http://www.causecaller.com/wiki/Democratic_Leaders_Should_Impeach_Bush

4. The Corporate Media

Despite six hours of in-depth hearings, there was no substantive coverage in any Corporate Media outlet. Call your favorite TV/radio talk shows and write to your favorite newspaper to demand coverage of impeachment.

On Tuesday at 10 pm ET / 7 pm PT, Air America's Richard Greene will discuss impeachment with Dennis Kucinich. Guests also include Mimi Kennedy and Tim Carpenter of Progressive Democrats of America. Listen online:

We've Opened the Door, How Do We Keep It Open? July 27, 2008 7:23 PM

We've Opened the Door, How Do We Keep It Open? Original article and tons and tons more can be found at:
http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/node/35070

By David Swanson

Your hard work has resulted in Congress cracking open the door to impeachment, justice, and peace. How can you keep it open?

A lot of us have our own favorite impeachable offenses - mine is the Iraq war - but a lot of them are not about to go anywhere in Congress. The impeachable offenses that appear to have the most traction among congress members (i.e. very little) are:

1. The numerous violations of laws combined with the announcement of the intention to violate those laws through signing statements. (I say it in this longwinded way, because just abbreviating it to "signing statements" allows people to pretend to miss the point.)

2. The numerous refusals to comply with requests, subpoenas, and contempt citations.

It has always been predictable, and predicted, that these would have the most traction (because nonpartisan, non-controversial, no congressional complicity, no investigation needed, clearcut and simple), and it has become clear that - as predicted - they DO in fact have the most traction.

We'd all LOVE to nail these fascist bastards for our favorite offenses, but we'd also all HATE for them to get off scott free, thereby establishing a precedent for future presidents; and when they nailed Al Capone for tax fraud everybody understood exactly why they'd done so.

What is needed is pressure on every member of Congress to themselves pressure Conyers, including by signing Wexler's letter at http://wexlerwantshearings.com So, please call your Representative every day at (202) 224-3121, focus on the issues that have the most traction, and urge them to ask Conyers to hold a real impeachment hearing. Remember that in an impeachment hearing the excuse of "executive privilege" is not allowed. A subpoena must simply be obeyed or those who refuse to obey it can be impeached.

Of secondary value is trying to get your Representative to introduce new articles of impeachment or new resolutions calling for impeachment hearings. So, any lengthy communications with your Rep should include that ask.

The third most important thing to do is to contact media outlets and urge them to cover impeachment, and contact polling companies and urge them to poll on impeachment.

The fourth most important thing to do is to support pro-impeachment candidates for Congress and make certain the incumbents know about it. Don't just send a check. First send a photocopy of it to the incumbent letting them know why they aren't getting one.

Now is the time to move on this with everything we've got. We've opened the door and must not allow it to close again.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Please go to the original place where this was posted,
( http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/node/35070 )
but note that I put this here as it does make sense to focus on one main thing that might get more backing by our "representatives".

Lots more can be found on the numerous posts here:

Plenty of video of the hearing or whatever you want to call it having to do with executive power can be found at youtube.

The garbage coming out of some of our "representatives" mouths was totally digusting and we must make it clear we will NOT be shoved aside and ignored.

Here's a link to one and you can find the others.

Get organized, get everyone you know and flood those scum with emails, faxes (which you can send online for free at http://faxzero.com(fax numbers can be found below), calls and letters and visits.

Media Contacts, Please ask them to cover the hearings July 20, 2008 9:20 AM

America needs to know...
From ImpeachForPeace

CQ said of Conyers' hearings:
The anticipated hearing would review more than a year of committee inquiry into such matters as the firing of U.S. attorneys, the leak of the identity of former CIA operative Valerie Plame and the information provided to Congress in the run-up to the Iraq War.
Kucinich has promised a surprise foreign official as a witness in the hearing. His article focuses on administration claims that Saddam possessed WMD in the run-up to the Iraq war, and that there was a connection between Hussein and 9/11.

 June 15, 2008 3:59 PM

I just received the following.  Please join me in responding.

Dear Carole,

Last Thursday the largest newspaper in my congressional district - the South Florida Sun-Sentinel - published an editorial lambasting my enthusiastic support for immediately holding impeachment hearings for President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.  Numerous letters to the editor have also criticized my support for this movement.

Below, you'll find the original Sun-Sentinel editorial, followed by my response, which was printed yesterday. 

I assure you that I will not back down from this fight – no matter the consequences or political cost.  The only thing that maters is that we deliver accountability for the Bush Cheney Administration and defend our government and our constitution.

If you would like to write a letter to the Sun Sentinel, you can email letters@sun-sentinel.com.

Thank you for your continued support.

The 35 articles of impeachment.............. June 10, 2008 7:43 PM

Here is some info from Kucinich (this site here is just sharing the info, you must sign up with the original site and source to get updates!)

Articles of Impeachment

Dear Friend:

Under circumstances that can best be described as "suspicious," the www.kucinich.us website was crippled early this morning a few hours after Congressman Dennis Kucinich introduced 35 extensively documented Articles of Impeachment against President George W. Bush.

Until we can restore the website and implement additional security measures, you can find the full list and detailed Articles at
http://www.democrats.com/files/amomentoftruth.pdf
and http://chun.afterdowningstreet.org/amomentoftruth.pdf

If you would like to show your support for the Congressman's efforts, please go to myinfo.kucinich.us to offer your comments and provide us with contact information so that we can continue to keep you informed.

Thank you
Committee to Re-Elect Congressman Kucinich

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Please sign up with them to get updates, this site is just sharing this info.

Here are some things you can do...

CALL CONYERS and PELOSI TO DEMAND IMPEACHMENT...

Here are the numbers for them both, remind them of their DUTY to put impeachment into action and remind him impeachment is NOT too late as it is never too late to uphold the law and it is never acceptable to claim there are not enough votes....it is not their job to say there are or are not enough votes, it is his job to uphold the law.............them saying they will not uphold the law is like a cop saying he won't arrest a murderer because a jury may not convict. Also that lame excuse that it will divide the country or stop the government doing their job is a lie, since the government isn't doing their job NOW and also everything and I mean everything hinges on us having the rule of law functioning.

We have enough evidence on video tape with bush ADMITTING to impeachable crimes, same with cheney, we could impeach BOTH in ONE DAY.

Please call Pelosi's office to demand she get out of the way of justice:
San Francisco Office: 415-556-4862
DC Office: 202-225-4965

Call Conyers (and others if you like)

202-225-5126

202-224-3121

202-225-3951

313-961-5670

My letter to Rep Jean Schmidt June 07, 2008 12:59 AM

I just wrote this to my representative Jean Schmidt, you can write your rep by going to
Here: House.gov

And here: Senate.gov

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Congresswoman Schmidt,

Now the Senate has PROVEN Bush (and others) intentionally lied us into war.

Repeat....THE US SENATE HAS PROVEN BUSH LIED ON PURPOSE TO GET US INTO AN ILLEGAL WAR.

Impeach them.

Read:
"The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder" by Vincent Bugliosi 

or any of a HUGE growing pile of books that clearly state we have enough evidence right now to impeach in no time.

Or, charge him and Cheney and Rice and the rest with murder.

Or, continue to sell your soul and sell out the United States and sell out the innocent Iraqi's and sell out the world so that you can cozy up to the power structure.

We pay you and lend you the power you have ma'am to protect our Constitution, not to comfortably rub shoulders with murderers and war criminals.

All the people that died in WWII did so to protect us from a tyrant.

To not impeach is to spit on their sacrifice and nullify everything they and so many others gave.

Stand up for this country, our Constitution, the people, the rule of law and the world.

Stand up and do what is right.

Stand up.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


Call Pelosi, Conyers and YOUR reps and DEMAND IMPEACHMENT!

Here: House.gov

And here: Senate.gov

Contact media: Fair.org

Vist and follow through on things you can do at sites like these: AfterDowningStreet.org and ImpeachBush.org

PLEASE folks, if we don't impeach we will NEVER get control of our government again and ALL issues from rights to animals to health to environment will mean NOTHING.

Please do everything you can.

Call Your Senators at 202-224-3121 STOP MORE WAR SPENDING !

Thanks to all of your efforts, Congress has defeated a bill to fund the war in Iraq for the first time in 5 years. The Republicans and cautious Democrats in Congress have been caught by surprise; they underestimated our influence on Congress to end the War in Iraq while supporting the Troops. Now the Senate will take up the funding bill.

Heads in Washington, D.C. must be spinning; don't let them catch their breath! Call both your Senators now--202-224-3121-and tell them to vote NO on the supplemental war funding bill.

Alert: 4,000 Deaths - 435 Town Halls March 24, 2008 10:11 PM


In April, Congress will vote to give George Bush another $102 billion blank check for Iraq - unless we finally persuade our Representatives to Just Say No.

One
of the best ways to persuade a Representative is to hold a Town Hall
Meeting and fill the hall with people who care and are willing to speak
passionately. That gets their attention!

(Another way is to turn out a crowd for a Town Hall that your Representative is
already scheduled to attend. You can follow the appropriate
instructions below.)

So we're asking the 500,000 members of Democrats.com to organize Iraq Town Halls in all 435 Congressional districts. It takes just two reliable activists to get started - can you help?

Here are the basic steps for planning the Town Hall:

Wexler Petition Hits 100,000 But 13 Judiciary Dems Remain Silent December 19, 2007 9:45 PM

Wexler Petition Hits 100,000 But 13 Judiciary Dems Remain Silent

On 12/14, Democrats.com was excited to announce Rep. Robert Wexler's campaign to demand impeachment hearings for Dick Cheney. Wexler's goal was 50,000 signatures but with your support, Wexler's petition passed 100,000!
http://www.wexlerwantshearings.com

Wexler is thrilled with your response, and he will hold a virtual town hall meeting on Thursday at 9 pm ET (6 pm PT) on Florida Progressive Radio with Kenneth Quinnell, co-hosted by Democrats.com.
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/fpc

Wexler has the support of two Judiciary Committee Democrats, Luis Gutierrez (IL-04) and Tammy Baldwin (WI-02). Five others are co-sponsors of H.Res. 333/H.Res. 799, Rep. Kucinich's Articles of Impeachment for Vice President Cheney: Steve Cohen (TN-09), Keith Ellison (MN-05), Sheila Jackson Lee (TX-18), Hank Johnson (GA-04), and Maxine Waters (CA-35).

But that leaves 13 Judiciary Committee Democrats who have NOT called for impeachment hearings. These 6 voted to send Kucinich's bill to Judiciary on 11/6, so they should publicly support Wexler's efforts: John Conyers (MI-14), Bobby Scott (VA-03), Brad Sherman (CA-27), Betty Sutton (OH-13), Mel Watt (NC-12), and Anthony Weiner (NY-09).

These 7 voted to kill Kucinich's bill on 11/6, so they need to CHANGE their positions and fulfill their oath of office to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign AND domestic: Howard Berman (CA-28), Artur Davis (AL-07), William Delahunt (MA-10), Zoe Lofgren (CA-16), Jerrold Nadler (NY-08), Linda Sanchez (CA-39), and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-20).

Please email all House Judiciary Democrats through this petition:
http://www.democrats.com/topelosiandjudiciary

If you are represented by any of the 13 Democrats listed above, please join your local Congressional District Impeachment Committee (CDIC) and plan local actions like letters to the editor, district office visits, birddogging, honkathons, and collecting petitions and personal letters on the streets:

With Your Help, Chris Dodd Wins Temporary Victory on Warrantless Wiretapping

Immediately after stealing the White House in 2001, Bush and Cheney told the telecom giants to wiretap ALL phone calls and emails of ALL Americans - even though it was completely illegal under FISA, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Only one company, Qwest, chose to follow the law. In true mafia fashion, Bush and Cheney punished Qwest by denying it contracts and prosecuting its CEO, Joseph Nacchio, for alleged securities fraud. The other companies willingly broke the law, and now face 40 civil lawsuits from outraged customers. So Bush is desperate to get Congress to grant the telecoms full immunity for the crimes he coerced them into committing.

In October, Senator Chris Dodd promised to filibuster the immunity bill. Harry Reid betrayed Dodd and all of us by pushing a vote on telecom immunity. On Monday, Dodd fulfilled his promise, and Democrats.com and other blogs generated over 500,000 emails to Congress in support of Dodd's filibuster. Key Democrats supported Dodd's filibuster, and Reid was forced to reschedule a vote in January. Watch Dodd's thank-you message:
http://chrisdodd.com/blog/chris-dodd-comments-after-fisa-victory

Of course nothing will stop Bush and Cheney from creating a fascist dictatorship, and they will put immense pressure on Harry Reid to pass the immunity bill when Congress returns. So let's keep a steady flow of emails to Congress opposing telecom immunity:

Friday is Iraq Moratorium Day #4

As we celebrate the Holidays, let us keep in our hearts those with less reason to celebrate:

* The 150,000 troops trapped in a grinding, senseless war, half a world away.

* The mothers and fathers, husbands and wives, children, grandparents, sisters and brothers of the nearly 900 troops dead in Iraq this year, who face a holiday they know they will never again share with those loved ones.

* The people of Iraq, with more than a million of their own loved ones dead, millions more living as desperate refugees in foreign countries, and all trying to survive the devastation of nearly five years of occupation.

Please remember them all this Friday, Dec. 21, by breaking with your daily routine and taking some action, by yourself or with others, to end the war.

Rep. Wexler Wants Impeachment Hearings for Cheney December 15, 2007 6:13 PM

Rep. Robert Wexler (FL-19) and two other Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee - Luis Gutierrez (IL-04) and Tammy Baldwin (WI-02) - today called on the committee to begin impeachment hearings for Vice President Cheney.
They declared, "The charges are too serious to ignore. There is credible evidence that the Vice President abused the power of his office, and not only brought us into an unneccesary war but violated the civil liberties and privacy of American citizens. It is the constitutional duty of Congress to hold impeachment hearings."
The three Democrats wrote an op-ed to announce their position, but none of the nation's leading newspapers would publish it - just as they refuse to include impeachment in their polls, and just as they refuse to publish their own investigations of the crimes of the Bush Administration. Why? Because the Corporate Media is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Republican Party, as it has been since the Reagan Revolution of 1980.
So this important announcement was made on a Blogcall hosted by Democrat.com, and was covered by progressive blogs - the only news media that serves the people, not the Corporations. 
You can read the full op-ed at Rep. Wexler's new site -  http://wexlerwantshearings.com - where you can also watch a powerful video by Wexler.
Rep. Wexler needs to collect 50,000 signatures to convince his Democratic colleagues that the American people truly support impeachment hearings. So please sign his petition:
http://wexlerwantshearings.com
You can also send an email to Wexler's other colleagues on Judiciary:
http://www.democrats.com/topelosiandjudiciary
Please share this exciting news with your friends, your favorite blogs, and your favorite talk shows - including Air America Radio.

More Democratic Betrayals: Join the Democratic Donor Strike
As Congress once again rushes home for the holidays, our Democratic leaders are adding to their long list of betrayals.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Harry Reid don't have the power to pass good bills by themselves, but they do have the power to keep wretched bills off the floor. But they adamantly refuse to exercise that power, and instead betray us at every turn.
On Iraq, Pelosi and Reid vowed to end the Iraq Occupation after voters elected Democratic majorities in 2006. But in May they completely surrendered and gave Bush a blank check for $124 billion. In September they gave Bush another blank check for $12 billion, while vowing to block any new funds until January. But now they are giving Bush yet another blank check for $70 billion.
What is their excuse? Incredibly, Pelosi actually said, "The assumption I made was that the Republicans would soon see the light."
On warrantless wiretapping, Pelosi and Reid rushed the abominable "Protect America Act" through Congress in August, while vowing to "fix" it in the fall. When Senator Jay Rockefeller's bill gave retroactive immunity to the telephone companies, Senator Chris Dodd vowed a filibuster. But Harry Reid is using his power as Majority Leader to undermine Senator Dodd's filibuster - something he adamantly refuses to do for any Republican filibusters.
Senator Dodd urgently needs our help immediately to persuade 41 Senate Democrats to support his filibuster:
http://chrisdodd.com/filibuster
Pelosi and Reid have betrayed all the voters - not just Democrats but also Independents and Republicans - who put Democrats in charge of Congress to end the occupation of Iraq and restore the Constitution.
It is time for Pelosi and Reid to resign as Democratic leaders and let real Democrats take over - Democrats who will fight and win, not surrender.
You can send Pelosi and Reid a message by joining our Democratic Donor Strike against the two fundraising committees they run - the DCCC and the DSCC.
http://www.democrats.com/donor-strike-2007
You can also call your Representatives and tell them:
"No Iraq Funds and No Warrantless Wiretapping"

Expanding The Poster Initiative November 29, 2007 10:00 PM

We now have more than 1000 Impeach Team volunteers divided into teams in just about every significant city in the America. We have already distributed nearly 50,000 posters, mostly by priority mail, the entire first two printing runs, and we take delivery of another 25,000 on Friday. All the posters you have requested so far have been shipped, and the last batch of Impeach Cheney? caps for those of you who also asked for one
will go out tomorrow first class.

and we have some strategic suggestions in this alert to share
with you to further expand the initiative in a big way.

First, we now have neat display trays available, the idea being to put them in book stores, poster shops and the like to be given away for free. The beautiful four color posters full size 11x17 posters are something people would like to take possession of, and for each one we figure that's a very high percentage chance of getting that person to actually speak out, and some of their friends as well. Just keep giving them away, we'll print more. Just submit the new form below and tell us how many tray setups you would like us to send.

http://www.usalone.com/impeach_cheney_flyer2.php

Each tray setup kit comes with 20 poster to start, it's already
labeled "Free Poster" and there are two places where you can put a local phone number if you like, to recruit additional activists (if the want more posters), and for the shop owners to call to ask you to come bring more to restock the trays. But you should also take the initiative to check back with them also (make sure they keep the trays when they run out).

Second, we have a printable pdf version of the poster available as a direct download. You can print these out on your own printer to hand out as flyers (which you would not want to do with the full size ones), or to post in places where a letter size sheet should make more sense, or to fill in if you ever run out of posters. It would be great to start getting out in some high foot traffic areas of the schools you are covering to do in person flyering. The pdf link is on the same page as above.

http://www.usalone.com/impeach_cheney_flyer2.php

Lastly, we need to revisit the campuses periodically repost the full size posters, to do the best we can to make sure they stay up. If you have not done so already, spread out to all college related businesses and ask them to keep one posted on their premises. And you can use the same form above to request as many additional posters as you need.

Please coordinate among yourselves, to divide up your territories, and delegate responsibilities. And PLEASE if at all possible pool your poster and tray requests so we can drop ship larger quantities in one package which will immensely help to save on shipping. If you've noticed the postage cost on the packages you have been receiving you will not be surprised to know that we've already dropped nearly 10,000 dollars at the post office in shipping on this. If you live close enough, if you have not done so already, pick a team leader for shipping and team distribution purposes.

But don't worry about the shipping costs. We're worried about saving the country much more than saving money. We are committed to getting you every possible poster you can get out any way you can. If you can make a contribution of some kind to help defray of these costs that would be great, and you can do that when you request more posters and trays. Otherwise, understand that the most important contribution is
to get as many other people as you can to join you in speaking out.

6,000 letters, we need 10,000................ November 28, 2007 8:53 PM

Dear Friends, Please pass the word, we have received over 6000 letters to encourage the Speaker of the House to open investigation and impeachment proceedings against Dick Cheney---in affect, allowing HRes 799 (which was HRes 333) to go forward from the House Judiciary Committee. Pelosi's office has denied the rumor, but that should not mean we abrogate our responsibilities as members of this so-called Representative Republic. This will put the ball back in her court and she will probably miss and fail us again, but that does not mean that WE STOP TRYING! We are still accepting letters and will deliver them when we reach 10,000, so please forward far and wide, again. We have received them from all over the nation! Send the letters to: Nancy Pelosi c/o Cindy for Congress Re: Impeach Dick Cheney 1260 Mission St. San Francisco, Ca 94103 We will not be opening the letters so please only include your letter to Nancy Pelosi in the envelope.

Major protests against Bush's Annapolis Meeting November 25, 2007 8:24 PM




MAJOR COUNTER PROTEST AGAINST ANNAPOLIS MEETING

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 27

In NYC: IN FRONT OF ISRAELI MISSION TO THE UNITED NATIONS
42nd Street and 2nd Avenue, 5:00 pm

In Los Angeles: Highland Ave & Hollywood  Blvd., 6:30 pm

In Boston: Park Street Station, 5:00 pm

In Charlotte NC:
7th St & Pecan Ave., 6:00pm
  • Free Palestine
  • Stop the siege of Gaza
  • Get out of Iraq
  • Stay out of Iran
  • Occupation & War do not make peace in the Middle East
Antiwar activists from across the region will gather in front of the Israeli Mission to the U.N. in NYC on Tuesday evening November 27 to protest the Annapolis “Peace” conference. We are protesting because the meeting has more to do with strengthening President Bush’s war in Iraq and war plans against Iran, than attaining justice for the Palestinian people.

Counter protests against the Annapolis meeting are also taking place in Boston, Los Angeles, and Charlotte, North Carolina.

The following is an excerpt from a statement protesting the Annapolis meeting that has been signed by 400 antiwar leaders and activist across the U.S.



Antiwar Activist Support Call for Counter Protest Against Annapolis Meeting

As an anti-war movement, we must ask ourselves: Can we allow the war criminals, who time after time have callously ignored the anti-war majority in the U.S. and globally, to get away with this outrageous farce?

Some may be confused about the purpose of the Annapolis meeting, so let’s speak plain truth: It isn’t really about peace and justice for the Palestine–it’s about deception, occupation and war. It’s about isolating popular forces and countries that reject U.S. rule. It’s about attempting to force new concessions on the Palestinian people, while attempting to normalize relations between Saudi Arabia and other Arab governments with Israel. All while Tel Aviv continues its all-out assault on the Palestinian people. And it’s about preparing for a new war.

At this moment, Palestinians in Gaza are being deprived of food, fuel, medicines and other basic necessities by an economic embargo imposed by Israel and backed by the U.S. Meanwhile, more Israeli settlements, roads, walls and checkpoints are being set up in the West Bank each day.

Tell Congress to Support Our Troops, NOT War Profiteers

Action Page: http://www.usalone.com/no_more_mercenaries.php

Facebook Version:
http://apps.facebook.com/fb_voices/action.php?qnum=pnum740

This week the Cheney White House retaliated for not immediately
getting another 196 billion in emergency Iraq occupation bucks no
strings attached, by threatening to furlough 100,000 Army and Marine
Corps civilian employees in this country.

The Democrats passed a funding bill with some relatively flexible
requirements for a troop withdrawal goal, but it was blocked by yet
another mean-spirited Republican filibuster.

The fact is that the Pentagon has plenty of money for all the troops
to do whatever they want, but a lion's share of all appropriations
are now going to private mercenary militias like Blackwater. There
are as many so-called "contractors" in Iraq as regular members of our
armed forces. Has anybody suggested cutting back on any of them?
Maybe it's time somebody did.

We spend billions of dollars training our armed forces. And for what?
So that they can leave to go to Blackwater, who then sell their
services back to us at a massive markup, as much as 10 times as much.
What kind of crazy fiscal insanity is that?

With their furlough threats, they are literally holding our entire
military civil service for ransom! The only way to REALLY support our
troops is bring them home now, just as the overwhelming majority of
American are demanding, and as you can demand again now.

Action Page: http://www.usalone.com/no_more_mercenaries.php

Facebook Version:
http://apps.facebook.com/fb_voices/action.php?qnum=pnum740

This is like the grinch on steroids. They should be bringing our
troops home for the holidays, not punishing the families of those who
serve by laying them off, in some sick attempt to put political
pressure on Democrats responding to the wishes of the American people
who want an end to the criminal Iraq debacle.

The American people have figured out that all these hundreds of
billions of emergency appropriations, year after year, are not going
to, and have never gone to, support our troops. Instead they have
been piped directly into the pockets of crony war profiteers, as
enabled for example by the tag team of Cookie and Buzzy Krongard, one
impeding investigations of Blackwater crimes, and the other sitting
on their board.

And yet, every time someone tries to impose some accountability on
this gross embezzlement of the U.S. treasury, they threaten to starve
our real troops, their families, and send them into urban combat
without even protective armor.

Oh, but it gets worse. In many ways, this is just another form of
foreign outsourcing, as now we learn that many thousands of these
"contractors" are goons that Blackwater is recruiting from countries
like South Africa and Chile. Then when they open fire on and mow down
innocent civilians, they claim there is no law or jurisdiction where
they can be prosecuted for their war crimes. And they have an edict
from former U.S. viceroy Paul Bremer to back them up, along with
immunity handed out like candy by our state department.

These mercenaries are poison for our own military. They decimate the
morale of our troops who see them getting rich for doing the same
duty as they are, while better equipped. They then further even
decimate the ranks of our troops, by offering them deals to leave the
service which our own military can't compete with, using our own
money to do it. And Blackwater and their ilk are poison for any
mission we thought we had in Iraq, when one of their foreign thugs
murders another Iraq civilian in cold blood just for the hell of it.

Tell Congress to end all mercenary contracts now. The privatization
of the military is absolutely the worst possible thing for democracy
and peace. It makes endless war a corporate imperative.

Action Page: http://www.usalone.com/no_more_mercenaries.php

Facebook Version:
http://apps.facebook.com/fb_voices/action.php?qnum=pnum740

And once we stop fighting wars for the bottom line of crony
corporations, we can bring our troops home once and for all, until
they are needed for a real international crisis, not one created for
the profit of war criminals.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed
to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.

Dear Speaker Pelosi……IMPEACH DICK CHENEY
It has been rumored that Nancy Pelosi would put impeachment back on
the table were she to receive 10,000 hand written letters encouraging
her to do so. Whether this is a true statement or not we feel it would
be a very powerful message to send the speaker and congress. Help us
take thousands of letters to Nancy. Lets make this action our Miracle
on 34th st. Our holiday present, accountability and justice.

Dear Friends
Instead of sending your Impeachment letters for Dick Cheney to Nancy
Pelosi's office, send them to my office so we can get an official
count.

Please send them to:

Nancy Pelosi
c/o Cindy for Congress
RE: Impeach Dick Cheney
1260 Mission St
San Francisco, Ca 94103

We are extending the deadline to gather as many letters as possible.
Please send your letter by Tuesday November 27th.

Spread this far and wide so we can take sacks of letters to her.
Don't include anything besides the letter (like a contribution)
because we won't be opening the envelopes.

Love
Cindy
Sample Letter

Dear Speaker Pelosi,

I am writing to urge you to support House Resolution 333, Articles of
Impeachment against Vice President Richard B. Cheney. Please consider your
constitutional duty to step forward to protect our democracy from further harm.

The heart of the current crisis is a Constitutional one. The American people
elected a democratic majority to restore our system of checks and balances, the
rule of law, and our international standing as an exemplar of democratic
leadership and values in the world community. It has become clear to an
ever-increasing majority of the American people that the President and Vice
President are actively opposing progress in these endeavors.

To date, the evidence of impeachable offenses is overwhelming: the Bush
administrations' use of illegal wiretapping and other forms of electronic
surveillance, violations of the U.N. Torture Convention and the Geneva
Convention, torture and extraordinary rendition, signing statements, and war
lies. These activities individually and certainly collectively warrant a
complete immediate investigation by the Congress.

As Speaker of the House, you can play a pivotal role in restoring our
constitutional rights and preventing further abuses of power by the Executive
branch by supporting HR333. Please don't betray us.

Sincerely,
-----------

This post was modified from its original form on 16 Nov, 15:42  [ send green star]
 
 September 23, 2007 12:53 AM

who has collected his mounting stars
with his willingness to act as a political operative for the White
House, to promote their lies no matter how disreputable.
 
So when George Bush gets on TV, and exploits the grief of the
survivors of our dead troops to say we have to continue sacrificing
more of them, he is trying to lay on their shoulders responsibility
for being INVESTED in his own sick mission. The only people invested
in this policy are those who voted for it, and continue to defend it
so shamelessly. And milking a captive audience of suffering loved
ones for cheers for yet more vengeful blood lust is beneath contempt,
even for a pathological demagogue.
 
AT LEAST 40 SENATORS ARE BEYOND REDEMPTION ON IRAQ
 
Some had hoped that enough Republican senators would come to their
senses by September to turn around the Iraq policy. But instead we
have seen no movement despite the self-evident and inevitable failure
of the "surge", which was never a military strategy in the first
place, only a marketing scheme to lull the American public into
another year of a doomed occupation.
 
It is clear that at least 40 Republican senators will vote lockstep
to the bitter, desolate end, the football analogy equivalent of a
"Hail Mary" pass. We strongly suspect that even those who side with
the Democrats long enough to get votes up in the high 50s would NOT
do so if they thought the vote might actually succeed, for example as
we saw Warner suddenly turn tail this week and reject a measure he
had previously supported.
 
 
What this means is that the only way to stop the endless and
escalating blood flood anytime soon is by refusing to appropriate any
more money EXCEPT to bring the troops home. That does not take 67
votes in the Senate or even 60. It only takes 41 votes there and a
majority in the House. We must bring maximum pressure on the House
this week to take a stand to stop the insanity. They are all facing
reelection next year. They all must understand that failing we the
people AGAIN will make primary challenges a determined certainty in
the first instance, and right behind that jeopardy of their chances
in the general election.
 
It is not our job to advocate for or against a particular candidate.
That is YOUR job, when that time comes.
 
BUT IN THE MEANTIME, IF YOU LIKE KUCINICH ON THE ISSUES LET HIM KNOW
 
We would be remiss not to ask who other than Dennis Kucinich has
shown more courage to speak out against the Iraq disaster before it
even started? If you are asking yourself what you can do to encourage
Dennis to continue to stand strong on the ISSUES, why not make a
contribution, if you are so motivated.
 
DENNIS KUCINICH CONTRIBUTIONS:
 
Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed
to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.

ACTION Alert: 81 Out Of Iraq Signers in Congress, HELP Us Get More September 23, 2007 12:51 AM

ACTION Alert: 81 Out Of Iraq Signers in Congress, HELP Us Get More
 




It's Time To Draw A Line In The Sand In Iraq
 
NOW IS THE TIME TO RALLY AROUND THE INITIATIVE TO GET OUT OF IRAQ
 
The most remarkable thing about the Petraeus coached testimony on the status of the failed occupation of Iraq was Republican senators using their hearing time to TESTIFY THEMSELVES about the good news and wonderful progress there. Why was he even there if only to have words put in his mouth, not just by the White House but by Congress itself?

According to every impartial judge, like the GAO, the truth is that there has been NO reduction in violence and the situation continues to deteriorate.
 
 
But finally now, at least in the House, there is a growing movement to finally have Congress put its foot down and say no more. As of today, 81 members of the House of Representatives have signed on to a letter drafted by Out of Iraq Caucus Chairs Reps. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA), Barbara Lee (D-CA), and Maxine Waters (D-CA), to the White House, declaring that they will appropriate no more funds for this war except to redeploy and protect our troops.
 
This is the best opportunity we've had so far to rally around an
initiative, to thank those who have already joined in, and to
encourage all others to sign on as well.
 
There can be absolutely no doubt that when we speak out in sufficient numbers, Congress ACTS. This was proven yet again a small while back when a million people (many perhaps not even citizens) demonstrated against an immigration bill, and within 24 hours it was dead on arrival in the Senate. Who could witness that and seriously maintain that Congress won't listen to us? Any such thought is a insidious lie, promoted only by sad defeatists and those who would con us out of our own participatory democracy.
 
OUR VOICES DO COUNT WHEN WE USE THEM!
 
As demonstrated by the recent drop of the popularity of Congress ANOTHER 3 points to 11 percent (in a passively conducted poll), you are not alone in being dissatisfied or even angry about what's going on in Washington. At the rate they are going they may have a ZERO percent popularity rating by Christmas. But what most of the currently remaining 89 percent have NOT yet done is SPEAK OUT ACTIVELY to demand policy change. That is the only thing that moves Congress. They know how unhappy we are. They are just waiting for enough of us to tell them what to DO.
 
 
So even if you are already speaking out, and we are asking ALL of our participants to make it their particular mission to not only submit the action page in this alert, but please also use the friends section of that action page to invite everyone else you know to do the same thing. Only if we mobilize every possible voice can we expect Congress to comply with our demands, because until we MAKE that demand in larger numbers there is nothing for them to be expected to comply with.
 
Time and again we heard Democrats last week calling for Republicans to have the courage to vote for the end of the occupation. But where is THEIR courage to cut off funding, except for the purposes of ending an occupation that can never succeed? There is NO courage that does not come from us, from our voices telling them they have more to fear in the coming primary and general elections from an angry electorate, than they have to fear from being called a name by a cable news TV talking fluff head.
 
WE MUST SPEAK FOR THE TROOPS WHO CANNOT SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES
 
Is there anything more despicable than members of Congress stuffing words in the mouths of our troops who are NOT allowed to speak out for themselves? Have you ever heard the military expression, "Permission to speak freely, sir?" Our military personal are PUNISHED for speaking out against this insane war policy. They are demoted, fired or worse. The chance of a member of Congress coming within 100 miles of a dissenting soldier in Iraq is about nil. In fact, when they visit the green zone talking points are even distributed about the "good news", to be spoon fed to gullible visitors.
 
So first they gag our troops, and then a senator tries to tell us
they're all just saying, "Let us win." But to the contrary we know
that if they were allowed permission to speak freely, abused as they are by multiple successive deployments, many of them grossly misused National Guard volunteers, they would overwhelmingly say, "Get us the hell out of here already!"
 
And soldier or not, nothing excuses the self-serving complicity of
General Petraeus. He is known by his fellow officers as a
bootlicking, ladder climber,  [ send green star]
 
 August 18, 2007 10:34 PM

It's up to us, folks. Congress is NOT going to do it without being pushed. We have to speak out in numbers like never before. WE have to demonstrate leadership they lack, each of us in our own perhaps small way, by wearing an "IMPEACH CHENEY?" cap to engage everyone you meet
in a discussion of the issue, and by getting them to vote in the National Cheney Impeachment Poll, just as you have already done yourself.
 
Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.

Dear Friends and Activists,
 
By Monday we will have shipped nearly 10,000 of the custom embroidered "IMPEACH CHENEY?" caps, and if you are getting this alert yours has either gone out already, or will with the last giant second round load to the Midwest and West Coast. People are writing us asking if we can drop ship caps in quantities of more than one. YES
WE CAN. Please use this form for multiple quantity cap requests.
 
 
We are not spending many multiple tens of thousands of dollars of your kind donations on this project to make some kind of fashion statement, or frankly even to make a political statement of our OWN position. We know the path to victory is in getting more people to speak out, to reach OUTSIDE the circle of usual activist suspects and
mobilize people who may not have been mobilized before for anything.
 
We NEED you to not only wear your caps everywhere, but also carry the vote gathering sheets with you  EVERYWHERE. Especially, ESPECIALLY if we sent you one for free, DO SOMETHING with it.
 
 
This is critical, critical, CRITICAL!!! A couple people have asked why there is a question mark on the cap. It is BECAUSE it is a poll, the National Cheney Impeachment Poll. The people we need to reach out to are the uncoverted, those who know in their hearts that
impeachment is necessary, but have yet to utter those words to anyone else. Get them to ask the question, and you will get their vote.
 
Some of our valiant participants have ALREADY collected the 200 votes which qualifies you for an Impeach Team varsity letter (see the second section down on the page above for the voting sheets). These fancy chenille masterpieces are not for sale. You can only get one by
your extraordinary achievement as an activist in getting more people to speak out. The more you wear your cap and carry the vote gathering sheets with you, the faster you will earn your varsity letter.
 
But we are asking each of you who has gotten (or soon will be getting) your cap to make a commitment to fill up a minimum of one voting sheet of 20 votes. We have one participant in a nursing home who is getting all her fellow residents to sign. If she can do it so can you. Do you want a real impeachment movement or not? We can create the most magic mobilizing tools, but only YOU can make it
happen by doing everything you could have possibly done to reach out to your fellow citizens.
 
ALSO TELL DENNIS KUCINICH HOW MUCH YOU APPRECIATE HIM
 
None of this could possibly be happening without the stellar leadership and vision of Dennis Kucinich, who despite a media conspiracy to marginalize him makes more and more sense to the American people every day with his positions on the issues. If you would like to encourage Dennis to continue to stand strong in all these ways, please consider also make a donation to him.
 
 
EVEN THE JUDGES KNOW IT'S TIME TO IMPEACH
 
This week the Cheney regime again tried to argue that the courts should have no jurisdiction to review their illegal warrantless spying because they claimed there were "other avenues" for that oversight.

 To which a federal appeals court judge responded, "What's
that? Impeachment?" That's as close as a sitting judge can get to
calling Congress essentially a gutless bunch of cowards.
 
And with the exception of Dennis Kucinich, and the other now 20 sponsors of H.Res. 333, to impeach Dick Cheney, so they are.
 
But that's OK, because there is nothing a cowardly member of Congress fears more than losing their next election. And there is nothing that will put the fear of that into their snivelling hearts faster than citizen activism getting more and more  [ send green star]
 
Put the pressure on Conyers August 14, 2007 10:57 AM

On August 4th, Sheila Jackson-Lee signed on as a co-sponsor to H.R. 333. She is number 18.

It is time to hold Conyers to his word. He has said that congress is a reactive body. On July 12th, the news spread of his statement that he would move forward with impeachment when 3 more members of congress supported it. Since then 4 have signed on as co-sponsors to HR 333.  He has said "What are we waiting for? Let's take these two guys out!"

Congress will soon(?) be heading home for a while. So immediate action is not likely, however, with the pressure of meeting daily in congress lifted, this gives us an increased opportunity to have our voices heard. Write to, fax or call House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers daily,  if you live near him, or if he is coming to your neighborhood, pay him a visit.

Money for Bridges and Cities, NOT War! Sept 29 in DC August 03, 2007 9:30 PM

"The American Society of Civil Engineers estimates that the USA needs to spend $1.6 trillion over five years to put its infrastructure — which includes some 590,000 bridges — in good condition."

Money for Bridges and Cities, NOT War!  Sept. 29 in DC

On October 1, Congress is scheduled to authorize over $100 billion for continued war in Iraq, and estimates for the long term costs of the war are over $2 trillion. Already more than $500 billion has been spent. 

Meanwhile, as the tragedy following this week's collapse of a bridge in Minneapolis reminds us, we face daily danger from our collapsing infrastructure.  This includes, not only
590,000 bridges, but roads, rail lines, subways, levees, preparedness for natural disaster emergencies, schools, hospitals, etc. 

Almost five years of U.S. occupation has destroyed the cities and towns of Iraq, killed more than 1 million Iraqis, created 4 million refugees (2 million displaced inside Iraq and 2 million refugees in nearby countries) left 70% of the population without potable water, electricity, schools or hospitals. Almost 4,000 U.S. GIs have died, many thousands are injured and maimed.

Billions spent for endless war means that there is no money to provide more than 40 million people in the U.S. with health care. It means that our cities are collapsing, our schools are not preparing our youth, our seniors are abandoned. Only the prisons and police repression are growing.

JOIN US on Saturday, SEPT 29 in a massive march from Congress to the White House to demand that the billions spent for War in Iraq be used to rebuild the crumbling cities of the U.S., rebuild the bridges and the highways, hospitals, schools, fire stations, utilities, parks, recreation centers and much more. This would mean millions of jobs and providing those with new skills.
 
Join us in a week long Encampment right in front of Congress (September 22 -29) to expose the real cost of Endless War and to demand that Congress use its constitutional authority to stop funding the war.

Despite overwhelming opposition from the people and a clear mandate to end the war, members of Congress from both major parties have continued to vote for more funds for the war, while robbing people here, who need money for healthcare, affordable housing, jobs with a living wage, schools, and much more.

Join with forces who are demanding funds for the rebuilding of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast and to demand full rights for immigrant workers. Join with organizers from Healthcare not War Campaign and with activists calling for the Impeachment of Bush and Chaney for War Crimes.

Together we will demand Bring ALL the Troops home NOW!

An Encampment in Los Angeles during the same week - SEPT 22 to 29 will help to highlight this issue. -

Buses, vans and cars are coming from around the country and from a city near you.  Momentum for the Encampment to Stop the War (Sept. 22-29) and the March on Washington (Sept. 29) is growing, with Organizing Centers in 47 cities, more than 65 buses scheduled and many more expected. The list of endorsers is growing daily, with more than 1,000 organizations, community groups and organizers.

Action Alert: IMPEACH Gonzales and the Rest Will Follow August 02, 2007 3:26 PM

Action Alert: IMPEACH Gonzales and the Rest Will Follow





TELL CONGRESS IT'S TIME TO IMPEACH GONZALES

The White House has ordered the Justice Department not to prosecute contempt charges against any of its operatives who it had also ordered not to testify in the first place.

Gonzales who HAS testified has told so many different stories that were he not himself the attorney general he would be facing perjury charges right now.

But of course even if he were convicted he would instantly be commuted or pardoned as was Scooter Libby. There is one and only one constitutional recourse left and that is impeachment. The appeal courts have already been stacked with right wing judges and they will not
intervene. The solicitor general will not appoint a special counsel. Only through impeachment can Congress demand a return to integrity.

On Tuesday, July 31st, Jay Inslee proposed that the Judiciary Committee pursue the possible impeachment of Alberto Gonzales, who tried to browbeat a semi-conscious John Ashcroft into signing off on a patently illegal spying program, who was the point man in doing a legal end run
around the laws against torture, who let the White House dictate which U.S. attorneys were not sufficiently partisan in their prosecutions, and who then lied repeatedly under oath about it all.

In today's Time magazine online article they examined the reasons Bush still has not dumped such an outright embarrassment of an attorney general, and the number one reason they cited was that "Bush needs someone at Justice who's going to watch the White House's back." Of
course this is precisely the reason he must be impeached immediately.

If his only purpose is to shield the Cheney White House from investigation and exposure of their own crimes he's the firstone who has to go.

For those focused on impeaching Cheney and Bush we suggest this is not a distraction. Instead it could be an important strategic icebreaker. To just get the word "impeachment" past the lips of some members of
Congress has been a major struggle. But our numbers are building fast, and once the dam breaks, it'll be Katy bar the door to the oval office.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.

to bonita July 29, 2007 12:44 PM

bonita, i was just thinking out loud and voicing my anger at how badly bush is ruining (or how well maybe) this country.
ya know, i do believe that we were all raised and instilled with the idea that we must obey and respect those in that big white house (& other positions of power & authority).  and because of this, i do believe that we, the voice of this country, have been complacent and allowed too much to happen that IS NOT FOR THE PEOPLE & THEIR WELL BEING.  to many of us do not think out side of the box. we (some of us) still believe that those folks in power are always right in their decision makings.  WRONG! as we have all seen with this madman bush.  as ratty said, civil protesting to the point of MAKING OURSELVES KNOWN AND HEARD is what has to happen.  if marin luther king could get hundreds of thousands of people to washington, we have to do it again.

Help Give The IMPEACHMENT Movement Visibility July 27, 2007 10:17 PM

Help Give The IMPEACHMENT Movement Visibility

WITH YOUR PARTICIPATION WE CAN HAVE AN IMPEACHMENT BREAKOUT
The mainstream corporate media would like to pretend that there is nothing going on, but a 15th member of the House just signed on to Kucinich's H.Res. 333 to impeach Dick Cheney first. 95,000 people have already voted in the National Cheney Impeachment Poll, and no matter how many times Pelosi protests that impeachment is off the table, we can drive it like a truck right through the front picture window. And this is how we are going to do it.

We have already shipped 6,000 "IMPEACH CHENEY?" caps and we want EVERYONE who has voted in the Cheney impeachment poll to have one, so that we can all be in the streets as a real time demonstration of our mobilization on this issue. A donation is NOT required. We will send you one for no charge, not even shipping, if you just email us back with your address and request one. But if CAN make any kind of donation, if only just a modest one, please submit this form.

Your donations allow us to run all the blog ads, pay for keeping up the short code cell phone voting function, where all you have to do is text the word "IMPEACH" to 30644 to vote Yes for Cheney impeachment. Most importantly, when you wear one of these caps, everyone you encounter will ask themselves the question "Should Vice President Cheney be Impeached," which is the question our democracy must answer.

In reacting to testimony of Alberto Gonzales yesterday under oath, Time magazine was moved to write the headline "Gonzales Digs a Deeper Hole". It would appear the game plan is to try to lie their way through the next 18 months, to run out the clock until they can all pardon themselves on the way out the door. But the one revelation that DID come out of the Senate hearing was that Vice President Cheney, on top of everything else, had been given unprecedented authority to intervene in justice department probes.

Just this last Friday the Cheney White House REFUSED to give a member of Congress access to the classified portions of two of these recent presidential directives. They won't even let our representatives SEE the complete terms of SECRET unconstitutional orders they are rushing to put in place. So what will it take to get Congress to debate these things, and actually confront a White House that is now issuing royal decrees at a record pace in the form of sweeping executive orders that presume to have legislative weight?

The last question we CAN answer. What it will take for Congress to act is for us to get out there, and make the impeachment movement visible, to engage so many of our friends and neighbors in a discussion of the issue that we can no longer be ignored. That is what the "IMPEACH CHENEY?" caps are designed to do. That is why we want you to have one. Congress will not defy the will of the American people, but first that will must be expressed. That is our job, to facilitate the expression of that will. And we accept the job.

VOTE IN THE NATIONAL CHENEY IMPEACHMENT POLL

In reacting to testimony of Alberto Gonzales yesterday under oath,
Time magazine was moved to write the headline "Gonzales Digs a Deeper
Hole". It would appear the game plan is to try to lie their way
through the next 18 months, to run out the clock until they can all
pardon themselves on the way out the door. But the one revelation
that DID come out of the Senate hearing was that Vice President
Cheney, on top of everything else, had been given unprecedented
authority to intervene in justice department probes. Isn't it time to
express your opinion on whether Vice President Cheney should be
impeached or not?

CHENEY IMPEACHMENT POLL: http://www.actspeak.com

This is a justice department that is already under a giant shadow for
pursuing a partisan political agenda, selectively prosecuting members
of the other party while quashing investigations of loyal Bushies.
The attorney firing scandal was all about installing political
operatives in place of fair prosecutors with integrity. And now we
find that Cheney has his hands in that too.

Gonzales said under oath that he found this troubling. We don't know
what's more troubling, that Gonzales claims to know nothing about
what was going on in his own department, or that he did know and just
can't stop lying. But all we are asking you to do is either to vote
Yes, or to vote No, on whether Cheney should be impeached. It's your
choice. That is what a democracy is all about.

When Bush "commuted" Scooter Libby's prison sentence, and would not
even rule out a further full pardon for him, was it to ensure his
silence, to keep from implicating his boss Cheney. It was reported
that Cheney had pressured Bush to do this. Was this an obstruction of
justice and an impeachable offense by itself? It's your call.

When Cheney stood before the American people talking about their
intelligence on Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, and they had no
such evidence, and they knew it, was that a high crime against the
American people, lying us into a war, or not? It's your call.

When Cheney pushed to make torture official U.S. foreign policy, in
defiance of the Geneva conventions, was that a good thing for our
national security, or did it cost us our moral authority as a
superpower? Do we defeat international terrorists by turning
ourselves into monsters like they are? Is that not a violation of our
own Constitutional prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment? It's
your call.

When Cheney worked in the shadows to eavesdrop on American citizens
without warrant, despite the fact that a special court had already
been established to PERMIT such activity if justified on good cause,
was that not a violation of the 4th amendment to our Constitution?
Who is it who really hates our freedom? It's your call.

And what will it take to get Congress to debate these things, and
actually confront a White House that is now issuing royal decrees at
a record pace in the form of sweeping executive orders that presume
to have legislative weight? Just this last Friday the Cheney White
House REFUSED to give a member of Congress access to the classified
portions of two of these recent presidential directives. They won't
even let our representatives SEE the complete terms of SECRET
unconstitutional orders they are rushing to put in place now.

CHENEY IMPEACHMENT POLL: http://www.actspeak.com

The last question we CAN answer. What it will take for Congress to
act is for you to speak out, just as more than 90,000 of your fellow
citizens have already in the National Cheney Impeachment Poll.
Congress will not defy the will of the American people, but first
that will must be expressed. Should the Constitution of the United
States get a fair up or down vote? It's your call.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed
to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Rep. Dennis Kucinich wants to put the name of everyone who supports Dick Cheney's impeachment in the Congressional Record!


The Congressional Record is the official record of the proceedings and debates of the United States Congress. It is published daily when Congress is in session and is fully searchable.


Every day that Congress is in session, Rep. Kucinich will submit 5 single-spaced pages of names with states, which is the daily limit under House rules. To be included, all you need to do is submit this petition.
http://www.democrats.com/impeach-cheney-congressional-record

This proposal came about on Thursday when representatives of Democrats.com and ImpeachforPeace.org spent the day on Capitol Hill meeting with Congress Members and their staffers. ImpeachforPeace.org has collected hand-written memorials in support of impeachment, following a precedent detailed in the Jefferson Manual. The individuals who have submitted these memorials will also have their names entered into the Congressional Record.

Our lobbying efforts found Congress edging closer and closer to impeachment. Congressional offices expressed growing awareness of citizen demand for impeachment - and citizen dissatisfaction with steps short of impeachment, such as issuing more disregarded subpoenas or passing meaningless censure resolutions.

Let Congress know you want nothing short of Impeachment. Be a part of history:

I personally don't like the democrats any better than the republicans, but, if it is something I think can help get something done, as in this case, I don't care who it is, so take a look at this and decide if you want to do it, I think it can help move us forward.

Thanks,
Rats

Your ad can be the one pressuring Republican Senators in some key states. Submit your script as soon as you can write it!


I've said it before and I'll say it again: the Republicans are feeling the pressure for change on Iraq. But I'm not a patient person. Especially when the lives of our troops are at stake. I refuse to wait around for the Republicans to move without giving them a little more pushing.

Quite simply, we want to take an unusual step - and we want to do it early. I think we need to run radio ads in the states of the Roadblock Republicans, making it crystal clear that they don't deserve to be reelected because of their continued support for the Bush Doctrine of escalation without end.  We need to turn up the heat even higher.

It's the pressure of activists and the voice of the people that have gotten us this far in the Iraq debate, not the cookie-cutter ads and thirty second soundbites of Madison Avenue media firms.

So we decided, why don't we let you speak in this radio campaign?  If user generated content can change presidential debates, I know it can help change the next election on the most pivotal of issues.

That's why we're running a contest. We want you to send in a script for a 30 second radio spot (that's about 65 words long), we'll whittle it down some to the top 20, and then we'll open up the voting to everyone. The winner that's chosen by the people will be what we air in the states. And we'll fundraise for the airing of that spot, with each of you able to choose with your contribution where you think we should run the ad. No political professionals making the spot, or choosing where to run it. It's all done by you.

You can make the spot sad, or satirical, or hard-hitting. Whatever you want to do. You can make it a personal story from your life (maybe you know someone in Iraq or have a family member there or maybe you are one of the many veterans in this community), or you can make a factual case on why voters should consider someone else because of this issue, or anything else you'd like. You get it -- it's up to you. And what you do can be the ad that goes on the air targeting the Roadblock Republicans.

So click here to submit your script.

You have until midnight ET on Saturday August 11th to get your script in, so get thinking and start writing. And forward this email to everyone you think might be interested in submitting a radio spot to this contest. If you know someone who has a way with words and wants to make a difference, send this along. We'd love to get their scripts.

Thank you, and let's make sure we get a change in course in Iraq very soon.

Good luck,

John Kerry

.....and glad to be here! I've been making the calls, sending the e-mails and signing the petitions.

If it was up to me Bush/Cheney would be impeached, convicted, removed from office, THEN sent to the International Criminal Court at The Hague, where they would stand trial for Genocide and Crimes against Humanity.  These 2 are the worst war criminals of the last 60 years. If swinging from the end of a rope was good enough for Saddam, then it's certainly good enough for George & Dick.

  • In Maine the Iraq Summer team kicked off its efforts with a rally in the beginning of July. Since then, Iraq Summer and MoveOn members have kept up constant pressure— pushing Senator Snowe over the edge.1 She recently signed on as a co-sponsor of the Levin-Reed Amendment to bring most of our troops home by April.
  • In Kentucky they staged a protest outside of a speech given by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell a few weeks ago and made the local news— proving that voters in Kentucky want our troops home.2 Soon after, they launched a major ad campaign in Kentucky against him. 3 His approval ratings continue to plummet.
  • Last week in New Hampshire, Iraq Summer organized a letter delivery to Senator Sununu's office and added to the pressure he's been feeling on the war. They made the local news last week and then were at it again this week, helping out with our citizen counter-filibuster.4

And the field directors are a truly dedicated and impressive bunch.

  • Susan D. is a field director in Iowa. She's the mother of an Iraq war veteran and speaks passionately about the toll that this war is taking on families across the country.
  • Jackie R. is a field director in New Mexico. She's dedicating all her energy to ending the war. Jackie comes from a conservative Cuban family and will be working in Latino communities to put real pressure on Representative Heather Wilson and Senator Pete Domenici to make sure they do more than complain about the war—they vote to end it.
  • Joshua L. is an Iraq veteran and he's leading our work in Illinois. He's concentrating on making sure Representatives LaHood, Johnson and Kirk start voting with their constituents to end the war. He's already been making waves at town hall meetings.5

Can you chip in $25 to help MoveOn and Iraq Summer run the biggest campaign in history to end the war?

Political extinction July 19, 2007 1:59 PM

Just for the record, I don't support MoveOn any more, they cave in and don't press for the end of the war soon enough, BUT they, just like any organization can help, so that is why I am sending this, this can help.

Thanks,
Rats

Political Extinction





Iraq Summer is the biggest campaign to end the war that's ever been organized. It's going to present Republicans with a choice: End the war, or face political extinction. Can you chip in $25 to help make sure pro-war politicians pay a price for keeping the war going?

Iraq Summer in Action

Dear MoveOn member,

On Tuesday night, Republicans in the Senate had to pick a side: They were either with the American people or with President Bush.

They chose Bush. They blocked a key vote to end the war. And we're going to make them pay for that choice.

As senators go home for August break, our partners at Americans Against Escalation in Iraq have put together the biggest campaign since the beginning of the war. It's called Iraq Summer, and it's going to present the Republicans with another choice: End the war, or face political extinction.

Iraq Summer hit the ground a few weeks ago. 90 organizers—including Iraq vets and military families—are busy building strong networks on the ground, organizing events and putting up hard-hitting advertising.

It's really important to keep this organizing going all the way through August. So we're aiming to raise $250,000 for AAEI and MoveOn's Iraq Summer campaign by the end of this week. Can you chip in $25 to turn up the heat on pro-war politicians—and make sure they pay in their home states for voting to keep the war going?

https://pol.moveon.org/donate/iraqsummer.html?id=10843-5736868-4twahb&t=3

If we want to end the war, we need to make it politically impossible for Republicans to stay the course.

And that's exactly what Iraq Summer is doing. Iraq Summer organizers are showing up at town hall meetings and asking tough questions, holding rallies, and training local volunteers on working with the media.

Of all the polling companies in the United States, only one has ever polled, and only once, on whether Americans want Cheney impeached.  54 percent of Americans and 76 percent of Democrats said Yes.  http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/polling

Counting Farr and Jackson, a total of 3 percent of Congress Members and 6 percent of Democratic Congress Members have taken the position shared by over three-quarters of Democrats, 51 percent of Independents, and 17 percent of Republicans around the country.

Meanwhile, Cheney's popularity has reached a record low, with 13 percent of the country in favor of his performance.  And that figure actually comes from May, prior to the most recent few scandals and exposed abuses of power: http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/07/09/polls-cheney-nears-quayle-as-least-popular-veep

What will it take for Congress to act?  The majority of the people want it, and the least popular Vice President in history can't be all that intimidating, can he?  Isn't it time we started intimidating him? http://www.impeachcheney.org

People from around the country are headed to Washington on July 23rd to find out whether pressure from the citizens of this republic counts for anything anymore: http://afterdowningstreet.org/node/24450

15 Congress Members for Impeachment

by David Swanson     Page 1 of 1 page(s)

http://www.opednews.com


document.write ('<a href="http://www.populum.com/tellafriend.php?page='+location.href) document.write ('" target="_blank">') Tell A Friend document.write ("</a>")

Congressman Sam Farr (D., Calif.) is the latest member of Congress to respond to intense pressure from his constituents and co-sponsor H Res 333, articles of impeachment against Vice President Dick Cheney.  The official list of co-sponsors at thomas.loc.gov includes 11 names, plus the original sponsor Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D., Ohio).  That makes 12.  In addition, Congressman Bob Filner (D., Calif.) has said he will sign on, and has said so publicly in media interviews including this one: http://www.atlantaprogressivenews.com/news/0189.html

That makes 13, or 14 with Farr.  Then there is Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. (D., Ill.) who has not signed onto H Res 333 or introduced his own articles of impeachment against Cheney or Bush, but who recently released this statement:

"In her first weeks as leader of the Congress, Speaker Nancy Pelosi withdrew the notion of impeachment proceedings against either President Bush or Vice President Cheney [actually she did that 8 months earlier, and Jackson began parroting her line right away, but who's counting]. With the president's decision to once again subvert the legal process and the will of the American people by commuting the sentence of convicted felon Lewis 'Scooter' Libby, I call on House Democrats to reconsider impeachment proceedings. Lewis Libby was convicted of lying under oath to cover up the outing of active, undercover CIA agent, Valerie Plame. It is beyond unthinkable that the president would undermine the legal process to protect a man who engaged in treason against the United States government, threatening the security of the American people. In November's election, voters put Democrats in charge of Congress because they believed our pledge of oversight and accountability. Now it's time for us to honor that pledge. The Executive Branch should be held responsible for its illegalities. Our democratic system is grounded in the principle of checks and balances. When the Executive Branch disregards the will of the people, our lawmakers must not be silent. Today's actions, coupled with the president's unwillingness to comply with Senate and House inquiries, leave Democrats with no other option than to consider impeachment so that we can gather the information needed to achieve justice for all Americans."

If Jackson signs onto H Res 333, there will be 15 cosponsors. 

Sam Farr represents Santa Cruz, California, the first city in the country to have passed a resolution demanding impeachment.  Santa Cruz city council passed that first resolution in 2003, and passed another in 2006.  Santa Cruz is also home to COIN (Coalition for Impeachment Now) led by local organizers Sherry Conable and Louis LaFortune.  Following Santa Cruz's lead, a total of at least 79 towns and cities have passed resolutions demanding the impeachment of Cheney and / or Bush: http://impeachpac.org/resolutions-list

Time is Up: Declare Independence from the Occupation July 11, 2007 2:23 AM

PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS OF AMERICA - Mobilizing the Progressive Vote

Time is Up: Declare Independence from the Occupation

The July 4th recess has ended and Congress is already back discussing Iraq amendments to the Defense Authorization Bill. Congress needs to hear from an informed, aroused citizenry with the same fervor that King George heard from American insurgents and revolutionaries 230 years ago.

And today even Republicans are speaking out against George W’s Iraq disaster.

Please act now: Contact your two Senators and Congress member (Capitol switchboard is 202-224-3121) to say the following:

  • Bring all U.S. troops and military contractors home from Iraq promptly. (We oppose the modified occupation envisioned by Hillary Clinton and Republican “moderates.”)
  • Oppose a permanent U.S. military presence in Iraq and support a ban on permanent bases. (Given the deceptive reasons for the U.S. invasion and abuses of civilians, U.S. military force is no solution in Iraq).
  • Revoke the October 2002 authorization for the Iraq war that was based on White House deception.

Contact your Senators and member of Congresss now at 202-224-3121. The Senate is already debating Iraq amendments to the bloated $648 billion Defense Authorization Bill. The House will begin doing so in a few days: We want a floor vote on a Barbara Lee-Jim McGovern-type amendment funding a safe, prompt withdrawal of all troops. Forward this alert to your friends.

Here’s our Congressional timeframe:

-- Throughout July we’ll be calling and monitoring them during all the Iraq votes.

-- Beginning Aug. 3, we’ll be meeting with or confronting our Senators and Representatives (based on their July votes) in district meetings during a month-long recess.

-- In September, PDAers will be in D.C. as Congress re-convenes to vote on spending over $100 billion more for Iraq.

Please make a quick donation to support PDA’s efforts to end the occupation and redirect funding to domestic needs!


HEALTHCARE NOT WARFARE

Iraq currently drains $10 billion monthly from our national treasury that could be going instead toward healthcare, education, environmental clean-up and anti-poverty programs. PDA activists nationwide are making that point and others as they leaflet at theaters showing Michael Moore’s SiCKO in support of H.R. 676, single-payer Enhanced Medicare for All. Click here to learn how you can join the fun around SiCKO.

Yours for peace and justice,

Tim Carpenter
PDA National Director

Progressive Democrats of America is a grassroots PAC that works both inside the Democratic Party and outside in movements for peace and justice. Our goal: Extend the victory of Nov. 2006 into a permanent, progressive majority. PDA’s advisory board includes six members of Congress and activist leaders such as Tom Hayden, Cindy Sheehan, Medea Benjamin and Rev. Lennox Yearwood. More info: http://pdamerica.org/.

Impeach/End the war (MOST RECENT LISTED FIRST!) July 11, 2007 2:21 AM


Hey folks,

Post anything about impeaching any of those bums here, and also anything about ending the war and keeping any other wars from starting.

I know there are other posts that will fit in here already posted throughout the posts here, but if you could just start putting them here, I will too.

I'll add the older ones here too, BUT if it's something you feel needs it's own post, go right ahead, I don't care how we fix things as long as we fix them.

Remember, when viewing, scroll all the way down through them as the most recent will be last, but check all please.

Thanks everyone, I love you all,
Rats
