Impeach Bush and Cheney: Telluride Colorado Takes A Stand!

Ordinance passes 6-1; Telluride is first in Colorado

By Reilly Capps

Taking a step into national politics, the Telluride Town Council passed an ordinance yesterday calling for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney.

The ordinance says that Bush and Cheney violated the public trust and knowingly harmed the United States and Colorado.

The measure passed easily, 6-1.Several Telluriders pleaded passionately about the need to get rid of a duo that has lied, tortured, and spied on Americans.

No one spokeout against it, nor did anyone defend the administration.

The ordinance reached the council's desk after 71 voters signed apetition.

The council's other option, besides passing it, was to put the ordinance on the November ballot and let voters decide.But instead of doing that, the council sent the message itself.

"I'm surprised that they did not refer it to the people," said Thom Carnevale, who organized the petition.

"It was a strong stand the council took."Mark Buchsieb was the only member of the council who voted against the motion.

It appears that Telluride is the first community in Colorado to call
for impeachment.

A vote in the town of Nederland ended up tied.But dozens of communities in other states have passed similar ordinances.

It began in liberal places like San Francisco and Vermont.

More recently, more mainstream cities like Detroit and Chapel Hill, N.C., have joined.Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Cleveland, has introduced a resolution in theHouse calling for impeachment, but most Democrats have said they don'tsee impeachment as a viable option.

A call to the White House seeking comment was not returned yesterday.

At the meeting, Phil Miller railed against an "imperial presidency"that launches unnecessary wars, and spoke forcefully and movingly against an administration that steamrolls dissent and then flattens foreign countries.

"The people have acquiesced too easily because they don't know the horror that war unleashes," said Miller, who was a soldier duringWorld War II, who saw babies starve and families hunkered down inbombed-out buildings.

He himself was hit by a bullet while fighting inthe Philippines. "I have seen the brutality of war that turns nice young men into barbarians.

"Mary McLean said Bush is "on a mission that seems inspired by the crusades" and powered "by his own delusions.

"Jerry Greene urged the council to pass the ordinance in order to get the ball rolling on impeachment, to encourage other towns to call forBush and Cheney's ouster.
"Why wait 'till November to make this statement?" he said. "We'll save ourselves thousands and thousands of words."

*It's difficult to see how a double impeachment would proceed. Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton are the only two presidents to have been impeached.

Both were found not guilty by the Senate. No vice president has ever been impeached.
But if the Senate voted to knock out both Bush and Cheney, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, would become president.

The council has to publicly read the ordinance a second time at itsnext meeting for it to formally pass.

* People continue to fail in researching the issue. Though it is both technically and legal to Impeach both simultaneously the procedural aspects of that move are beyond the comprehension of most members of Congress, and the idea rests with Parliamentarians like me, and Impeachment minded Scholars and Attorneys.

A dual Impeachment is in reality a great mental exercise and chess game.

Reality dictates that Cheney is Impeached first and a deal is made for Bush to appoint a new Vice President before Impeachment of the President is initiated.

The concept of Pelosi becoming President opens the whole screaming “COUP” issue, to say nothing of the fact that she is flat out incompetent for the Office.

So forget the Dual, Double Barrel shotgun approach in all things but resolutions calling for the Impeachment of the Fascist Duo!
