Howdy citizens. I think China Cat linked to this move for impeachment a few/several months ago. I'd like to re-invite us all to take action in calling for the impeachment of Dick Cheney. Once Cheney is impeached, even if Bush remains in power, he will undoubtedly no longer be able to string his sentences together or form arguments, perhaps not even solid thoughts, without Dick. Hell, he can't much do that at the present moment. Unless of course, Karl Rove is still lurking in the sulphur and smoke somewhere. No telling where that fiend is. Hopefully he hasn't moved on to prey on Huckabee or McCain, hissing and chortling his way back behind the scenes for another four years. What a horrible nightmare that would be for us all, eh?

Yes, I know, only twelve more months and Cheney-Bush is gone, poof, banished by term limits and consigned to do its inhuman work among the citizenry and corporations. Yet a lot can happen in twelve months, so let's not all breathe a sigh of relief or do a victory shag yet. These criminals still have twelve months in which to kill, loot, rape, maim, and lie. I don't know about you, but I can't have that. So I signed this here petition. Yup, and I'd do it again if I could. Won't you rock the boat a little with me?

Your Answer: Yes, sign me up!!!

Or: Need convincing? Check these here newfangled links out:

There may be a case, there may be a reason, it may very well be worthwhile. But in this season with the time constraints left, it is more than highly unlikely. I doubt that the majority of Dems would support it.
Yes, yes, yes, yeah I know, BUT
the relevant question seems to me,
do we as individuals support an action to impeach?

I agree that it's highly unlikely to be rushed through in the few months left. But for me personally, rationalizing and equivocating about why it won't and doesn't matter is irrelevant. I put myself behind an effort to impeach because I feel to do otherwise would betray my integrity.

This country is currently afflicted by a citizenry who are too concrened with politcal analyses and juggling, and pay too little attention to their consciences. Morality and ethics have been tied up and discarded into the way back, while the SUV of the U.S.A. continues to lumber forward with pirates and robber-barons in the driver's seat--a bunch of unprincipled goons who get irresponsibly high on hoarding profits from oil, weapons of mass destruction, war contracts, slave labor, advertising, and overpriced everything. The fact that these same villians invoke God and "family values" and "good vs. evil" at almost every turn is unbearable.
Impeachment measures in Washington State are moving forward.

Bill sponsor and vice chair: Senator Eric Oemig (D)
Committee members voting in favor of SJM 8016: Senator Eric Oemig , Senator Darlene Fairley, Senator Adam Kline; Senator Joe McDermott; Senator Craig Pridemore

SJM 8016 2007-08, revised for 2008, calls on Congress to initiate impeachment hearings for the President and Vice President. The bill, first introduced Feb. 15, 2007, was heard before the Senate Government Operations and Elections Committee on March 31st, 2007 with over 500 pro-impeachment citizens in attendance.

The bill cites serious allegations of misdeeds by the Office of the Executive. It includes a long list of violations to the US Constitution, including domestic wiretapping, manipulating intelligence to mislead the Congress and the people about the reasons for attacking Iraq, Torture and extraordinary rendition, and subverting the rule of law.

The bill states that, " The citizens of Washington state expect and require their highest elected officials be subject to the laws of the land, like any citizen, and uphold the constitutional oath taken by them upon assuming office."

Rep. Maralyn Chase authored a companion bill in the WA State House, HJM 4027, cosigned by Rep. Hasegawa, Rep. Moeller and Rep. Dickerson. It has been referred to the House Government and Tribal Affairs Committee. No hearing has been scheduled yet in the House.

“All of us took an oath to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States. This memorial is how we tell history, and the rest of the world, that we do not sanction illegal war, we do not sanction unlawful spying, and we do not sanction torture. This memorial is how we honor our oath and protect our great country.” Senator Eric Oemig, January 17, 2008

"State Legislatures have a long standing tradition of sending requests to Congress," says Linda Boyd, Director of Washingon For Impeachment, "Articles of impeachment against Dick Cheney were introduced by Congressman Kucinich in the US House in April. The citizens of Washington State are proud of their strong legislators, and call on Congress to simply investigate serious allegations regarding abuses of power in the Office of the Executive."

Washington For Impeachment
We've had what two impeachments in the history of the US? Was either initiated by a State legislature? To me, at this juncture this is a waste of taxpayers money, something unfortunately is rarely considered by those elected.

A waste of money. :confused: :eek: :( :rolleyes:

At this point, when we are spending a billion dollars a day or whatever the hell the figure is in Iraq, what does it matter? How can it be a waste of money to support the impeachment of war criminals? If that's not worth spending some money on, I don't know what is.
I agree with your passion on this issue Pathless. But what America really needs to do is go after the Puppet Master, not the puppets. His insidious grasp on virtually every event that brings terror and war in the name of the USA is by his orchestration. He has for 4 decades sent simple US citizens, swallowing the crass pill of patriotism, to foreign lands to kill before returning in their body bags. Yet he has a Nobel peace prize!! How F*****G CRAZY is this world? How blind its peoples.

Bhuto was ordered "taken out of the picture". Who gave that order? Who only today congratulated the incompetent Musharef publicly for a job well done? The one and only Henry Kissinger. Puppet master in Chief. The biggest Butcher of innocents alive in the world today. Yet nobody ever brings the right questions. Nobody is brave enough to stand up and call him the sick f***er that he is.

Yeh America should impeach the gruesome twosome. But they let the big fish off the hook when Nixon went down. And it would be the same again today.

Tao, I don't know much about Kissinger's current role in the government(s), and I'd appreciate it if you could bring more information to the table here. I did see that he was at the White House very recently, but I'm not sure how unusual that is.

I've just watched this creepy video put out by Alex Jones' Prison The Earth Is Being Turned Into A Prison Planet. It's of a filmmaker, Aaron Russo, talking about the Machievellian orchestrations of Nick Rockefeller, another member of the elite that I don't know much about. This is a very disturbing interview, one that I think it is necessary to take with a bit of skepticism.

Rockefeller Admitted Elite Goal Of Microchipped Population
Why Pathless and Tao, didn't you know that Dr. Kissinger is really Dr. Strangelove ? And the "good" Doctor still consults extensively.

And as for the "microchipping" and forced urbanization of the global populace, that was begun in about 1984. The "cell phone/sattelite wireless revolution has only enhanced the "tracking" capabilities of our keepers/betters since then. *shudder*

lol Flow, Dr Strangelove indeed.

Pathless, where to begin with this monster I dont know. He did start out in politics under the wing of the Rockefeller crowd and developed an expertise as a presidential puppet master with Nixon. His litany of terrors is so great that i would need to write a hefty volume to list them all. But amongst his main "orchestrations" was Operation Menu, the carpet bombing of neutral Cambodia that killed over 1 million men women and children. The Fascist coup in Chile in 1973 that brought Pinochet to power. The terrors of Guatemala, Honduras and every other central and southern American intifada's are a part of his mechanations. He was puppeteer for Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush Snr and Jnr and is the architect of all republican foreign policy. Famously quoted as saying "power is the greatest aphrodisiac" his ego is equally famous. He has sat on about every foreign policy committee as a consultant but he is no consultant, he is the man who gives the orders.
I have realised he is the man that holds real power for a very long time, since pretty soon after I became politically aware in the late 70's. But dont take my word for it. Start digging . Have a look for yourself at any US foreign "intervention" during a Republican administration and you will find him. That includes the current excursion in Iraq. He is the most evil man alive today.

Hi...I don't necessarily agree that Dr. Kissinger is the "puppet master". If one wishes to develop the descriptions of extant evil within American Government, I would shy away from trying to pin it all on one person. IMHO it's more of a "networked" and shared set of attitutes and traits which is diffused and decentralized all over and through the structures of Government. If democratic government reflects the nature of the people in the democracy, then you've reached an uncomfortable answer. We all are most to blame.

Now Mr. Cheney certainly has his faults, and we might point to him as "the cause of all causes", but then that would be scapegoating an individual for the misdeeds of many others also. It is a systemic set of problems that will only be solved when enough people get angry enough about it. Systemic problems aren't solved with liberal applications of band-aids.

Here's an example of just how deep this all goes.

If Obama accepts VPres with Clinton as Pres, or Clinton accepts VPres with Obama as Pres, there might be an earthquake with the landslide.

Just another prediction.
Former Senator and presidential candidate George McGovern writes about the importance of American citizens speaking up and supporting an impeachment effort against Bush and Cheney:

Why I Believe Bush Must Go
Nixon Was Bad. These Guys Are Worse.

By George McGovern
Sunday, January 6, 2008; B01

As we enter the eighth year of the Bush-Cheney administration, I have belatedly and painfully concluded that the only honorable course for me is to urge the impeachment of the president and the vice president.


Impeachment is unlikely, of course. But we must still urge Congress to act. Impeachment, quite simply, is the procedure written into the Constitution to deal with presidents who violate the Constitution and the laws of the land. It is also a way to signal to the American people and the world that some of us feel strongly enough about the present drift of our country to support the impeachment of the false prophets who have led us astray. This, I believe, is the rightful course for an American patriot.

McGovern Speaks Out
Why impeach just one King, Dictator, Emperor, or President, when the error was in the election of one in the first place? No taxation without representation, and there is no representation left in these 2 bit elections. You think there is representation in impeachment?

What would you suggest, cyberpi? I agree that individuals are under-represented and that democracy in the U.S. is a bad joke, if that is indeed what you are implying. Yet this impeachment effort is the best political initiative going. What would you suggest?

I suggest the idea of impeachment in the 8th year is a political play.
