THE IMPEACHMENT CAMPAIGN OUTLINE AND LINKS




ATTITUDE AND ORGANIZATION ARE EVERYTHING!


CAMPAIGN: “IT’S THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE STUPID”: TIME FOR IMPEACHMENT!


CAMPAIGN OUTLINE:


Read and get your facts, telephone talking points and writing points organized.


Call your member(s) on the Committee, followed by your Representatives who may not hold such a position. It does not matter whether they are Democrats or Republicans because all 435 House seats are up for election in November of 2008. They are all vulnerable. This they will understand!


Write the members of the Judiciary Committee, (Email and/or Fax).


Turn that letter into a “LETTER TO THE EDITOR” sent to appropriate local news outlets as an “OPEN LETTER TO: so-and-so”.


Do the same for Speaker Pelosi, Majority Leader Hoyer and Chairman Conyers. The follow up “Open Letters” for these individuals should be sent to their local news outlets and the DC Area outlets most notably The Washington Post.


Some tailoring of your letters may be necessary. Do not send “Letters To The Editor” off in batches lest the outlets may see that and shy away from publication of identical or duplicated messages!


If you have additional channels to reaching any member of the House, i.e., personal, campaign personnel, local appearances USE THEM!


Get the message out in whatever manner you can AFTER you make the direct contacts and cover the media!


Continue working with any all groups you are allied with AFTER you make the direct contacts and cover the media!


Much of the work can be done from this page after you have written your materials and prepared them for cut/copy and paste and/or attach techniques for delivery

Contact your Representative likewise, asking him/her to support AND to Co-Sponsor Representative Kucinich's resolution to impeach Vice-President Cheney. If you wish, here's an easy way to do this, but please add your own comments, including your request that your Representative Co-Sponsor: http://www.democrats.com/peoplesemailnetwork/73


In contacting any supporter of original H. Res. 333; please extent your thanks, encourage his/her continued actions a pledge of your personal support and endorsement.


Although the political machinations of Tuesday November 6 indicate that the Democratic leadership hopes Kucinich's bill will again be put on the shelf by a subcommittee of the Judiciary Committee (as it was last May by Rep. Conyers and Rep. Nadler), the tide seems to be changing!


We need to see to it that the tide washes Cheney out of the White House!


The next day (Nov. 7), 6-term Rep. Robert Wexler (D-FL), emailed his constituents:


“I share your belief that Vice President Cheney must answer for his deceptive actions in office, particularly with regard to the preparations for the Iraq war and the revelation of the identity of covert agent Valerie Plame Wilson as part of political retribution against her husband.


…Cheney and the Bush Administration have demonstrated a consistent pattern of abusing the law and misleading Congress and the American people. We see the consequences of these actions abroad in Iraq and at home through the violations of our civil liberties. The American people are served well with a legitimate and thorough impeachment inquiry. I will urge the Judiciary Committee to schedule impeachment hearings immediately and not let this issue languish as it has over the last six months.


Only through hearings can we begin to correct the abuses of Dick Cheney and the Bush Administration; and if it is determined in these hearings that Vice President Cheney has committed High Crimes and Misdemeanors, he should be impeached and removed from office. It is time for Congress to expose the multitude of misdeeds of the Administration and I am hopeful that the Judiciary Committee will expeditiously begin an investigation of this matter.”


Also in the wake of Tuesday, Carol Shea-Porter, a first-term Representative (D-NH), characterized the sending of Kucinich's bill, now H.Res. 799, to the Judiciary Committee as a “strongly bi-partisan vote.”


In explaining her own vote, she said:


“It is the duty of the Vice President to faithfully execute the laws of the United States of America and to defend the Constitution. There is growing evidence that the Executive Branch has ignored some of our laws and has attempted to bend the Constitution to its will. Members of both parties decided that this issue is too important to ignore. I voted with my Republican and Democratic colleagues to investigate the Vice President’s actions in office.”


And Rep. Stephen Cohen (D-TN), a member of the Judiciary Committee and a co-sponsor of the H.Res. 333 said that he expects there to be an impeachment hearing in the Committee.


Now are you ready, prepared to vote in the Primary of your choice: even if that means re-registering temporarily? We need to get into the Democratic Party primaries and support Dennis Kucinich. There is a message that needs to be sent and a candidate that has earned our support! Forget the rest of them for right now!

THIS LETTER ALREADY SENT AND IN THE CAMPAIGN MECHANISM: A SAMPLE OF THE POSITION WE MUST TAKE IN “IT’S THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE STUPID!” CAMPAIGN.


Dear Congressman Hoyer,


As a Democrat, I write to you, our Party’s House Majority Leader, because of the considerable influence you have in this Congress. I am dismayed and disgusted by your current refusal to investigate and confront, via Impeachment, the violators of our Constitution.


With the introduction of articles of impeachment by Congressman Kucinich on Tuesday, November 6, 2007, you are presented with an historic opportunity to act on your oath to defend the Constitution. I DEMAND you seize this opportunity.


Support the resolution calling for the impeachment of Vice President Dick Cheney that is now awaiting action in the Judiciary Committee.


Heed the call from a Democratic member of the committee, Congressman Robert Wexler of Florida.


Listen to the plea of Congressman Kucinich. He may not be the voice of our party, but he has surely become the soul and conscience of our party. His integrity is intact.


The American people are served well with a legitimate and thorough impeachment inquiry. I will urge the Judiciary Committee to schedule impeachment hearings immediately and not let this issue languish as it has over the last six months. Only through hearings can we begin to correct the abuses of Dick Cheney and the Bush Administration; and, if it is determined in these hearings that Vice President Cheney has committed High Crimes and Misdemeanors, he should and must be, impeached and removed from office.


It is time for Congress to expose the multitude of misdeeds of the Administration, and I am hopeful that the Judiciary Committee will expeditiously begin an investigation of this matter.


Do not continue to betray Your Constituents! Do not continue to betray our party. Failure to act in a manner which supports our Constitution and the most fundamental laws of this land will only expose more weakness and lack of backbone on the part of the Democratic Party leadership. It will only serve to fuel the growing contempt of we Democratic voters that you depend on for your position.


Fail us now, and we will not be there. We will find ourselves with no other choice than that of departing from the party and opposing all who fail to uphold their oath of office and are not willing to do the bidding of the people.


The people are not afraid of the consequences of impeachment of this Vice President; the polls show they are firmly behind his removal.


Your stated fear that hearings will backfire in an election year has lost credibility and support. You have lost credibility and the respect of far too many Americans in general and within our party in particular.


Open hearings so we may begin the process of the restoration of our party and the salvation of this nation. To do less is to will contribute further to the irrelevance of our party.


This matter is not only of party concern; it is a Constitutional crisis that threatens the very integrity of our American institutions and Democratic fabric. To ignore the truth by inaction and excuse is a course of action in and of itself criminal.


Exposure of the Vice President’s many misdeeds will enlighten others to the damage that is being done in our name, and to our Constitution, will create the ground swell necessary to move the Senate to impeach.


By opening hearings in the House you begin that process, moving our nation out from under the cloud of this administration. I am in earnest when I say to you that I will oppose every member of the House who does not support this move. That is my right. We empowered you; we elected you and we can remove you, and we are prepared to do just that is you are not loyal to this nation and faithful to your oath.


This nation is more important than you, more important than any election; more important than any party.


Should you stop Kucinich’s resolution in committee, you will fail your own oath of office: “To defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic.” With such precedent, you will allow this current administration - and any future White House - to commit additional high crimes and misdemeanors without consequence. Do you really want the Democratic Party to be a co-conspirator in the continued dismantling of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights?


The remedy to the abuses of the Bush administration is in the Constitution. The Congress has the power to impeach the Vice President, and the President - Use It! Failure to act is irresponsible, unacceptable. It will not be forgiven, forgotten or be without consequences.
