THIS ABSOLUTELY PISSED ME OFF…NO THER WORDS WILL DO!

Dear Ed.,

I am writing to wish you Happy New Year and to personally thank you for your support this year.
Our accomplishments would not have been possible without the support of Democrats like you.
As we celebrate the holidays with our family and friends, let us reflect on why it is critical that we work so hard to take America in a New Direction.

In 2008, we will have almost 75 Republican seats in play, and 30 vulnerable Democrats to protect.
House Republicans have already transferred more than $3 million from their Members' campaign accounts into the NRCC this month.
On top of that, they have Republican outside groups ready to spend hundreds of millions of dollars against us next year.

Midnight tonight may mark the New Year, but it also marks a critical year-end FEC deadline for all Democrats. If you haven't already done so, please go to www.dccc.org/midnight and give.
We are just $33,512 away from our goal and your urgent donation will be matched by House
Democrats.
The resources we bring in today will show our strength before the end of the year, and carry us into 2008, where we will expand our Democratic majority and overcome Roadblock Republicans who are blocking the change the American people so desperately want.

To give now, please contribute at www.dccc.org/midnight.

Thank you again for your support and Happy New Year!

Nancy Pelosi Speaker of the House

Dear Democratic Party Organization,

This communication did it! I have been loyal to the party as a young Democrat before I could vote and have labored in the vineyards of our party in support of every Democrat Candidate in my voting jurisdiction until now. I have reached the point of consultant and have advocated with everything that is in my being on behalf of my party.

That is over. That you would allow this request to be sent to me bearing the signature of Nancy Pelosi is both an insult and a disgrace.

She has betrayed everything that Democrats stand for and our current crop of candidates, with the exception of Dennis Kucinich, are no better than the Republican Party offerings. In fact; they are traitors to everything we once stood for.

I will no longer place party loyalty, service and support before the welfare of this nation. To ask my support at this time is to ask me to abandon all principle and integrity. To ask my support at this time is to ask me to surrender, capitulate to a party that supports the Bush Administration’s every whim and chooses to do nothing in the belief that will lead us honorably to the White House. It will not!

I will instead assure you that I will oppose every candidate seeking office in 2008 who does not support The Constitution, who does not move to Impeach both George Bush and Richard Cheney, as that failure is a violation of their oath of office for which they should forever be removed from public office as a representative of the Democratic Party.

The name of our party is in and of itself pure hypocrisy in my eyes. I am ashamed to call myself a Democrat and I do not know how much longer I can do so.

In Sincere Anger and disgust,
Ed. Dickau

John Nichols: Wexler's profile rises with impeachment talk
Submitted by Chip on Mon, 2007-12-31 08:53. Activism Congress Criminal Prosecution Impeachment
John Nichols: Wexler's profile rises with impeachment talkJohn Nichols Capital Times

Robert Wexler is not actually running for anything but the Florida U.S. House seat he has held for the better part of two decades. But the congressman who has taken the lead in the fight to open impeachment hearings against Vice President Dick Cheney has launched a Web site that says he is "giving voice to America's progressive Democrats."

He's riding an idea -- holding the Bush/Cheney administration to account in order to reassert the role of Congress as a co-equal branch of government -- into the consciousness of progressives. He's appealing to those frustrated not merely by lax leadership in Congress but by a presidential field that, with the exception of Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich, does not seem to recognize that the White House has run roughshod over the Constitution.

Wexler's decision to step out front in the fight to check and balance Cheney has convinced a lot of activist Democrats that he gets it. If he keeps getting it, the veteran member of the House Judiciary and Foreign Relations committees could find his name added to the list of potential vice presidential nominees.

In two days, more than 50,000 people signed the pro-impeachment petition at the http://www.wexlerwantshearings.com/ site. And the numbers are rising by the hour.

Wexler is distinguishing himself as a bold and strategic thinker at a time when most Democrats are struggling to strike the right balance between principles and tactics.

He has connected with frustrated progressives by bringing a new argument into play. Rejecting the notion that impeachment hearings might distract the Democratic Congress, he says that an accountability push is exactly what is needed to make things happen.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and most top Democrats continue to chirp about how Democrats really are getting things done. The problem, as the tanking approval ratings for Congress confirm, is that no one outside Washington takes those claims seriously.

Wexler argues that moving on the Cheney impeachment front is the best way for Democrats to force the White House to work with Congress on a host of critical issues.

"After the Democratic Party regained control of Congress, many -- myself included -- thought that it might be possible to meet President Bush halfway on the large issues facing our nation. Unfortunately, Bush has been nothing more than an ideological obstacle. He has vetoed stem cell research. He has vetoed efforts to bring our troops home from Iraq. He vetoed children's health care. So the idea that we are somehow inhibiting Congress from passing our agenda by holding impeachment hearings -- unfortunately -- is a false argument," explains the congressman.

"Instead," Wexler adds, "I believe that we can both live up to our constitutional obligation by holding hearings and pass a Democratic agenda. If President Bush perceives that the Democratic Congress is weak and unwilling to aggressively push our agenda, he will continue to veto legislation -- such as children's health care -- that is supported by a majority of Americans. The only way to move a progressive Democratic agenda is by acting through strength and following through on our core principles."

Wexler's assessment is not a new one -- activists have been saying as much for months. But few leading Democrats have been willing to link the moral case for impeachment with a practical one. The Florida congressman's willingness to do so marks him as a smart player in touch with grass-roots Democrats.

Bob Wexler is not running for vice president. But a Florida congressman who has national appeal could be an attractive addition to the list of potential running mates, especially for Democratic presidential contenders who have yet to display Wexler's understanding that Democrats must make a clear break with the Bush/Cheney administration if the party's 2008 ticket seeks to offer itself as a genuine vehicle for change.

As you heard, over 100,000 independent-minded Americans voted at IndependentPrimary.Com. Dennis Kucinich won the Democratic race at IndependentPrimary.Com. And Ron Paul won on the Republican side.
Voters who participated in independentprimary.com voted with their hearts!

So now what? IndependentPrimary.Com is about giving independent-minded voters their say in the Presidential Election.

We've got a great radio ad developed telling New Hampshire independents about IndependentPrimary.Com and the results. We're running it so we can impact on the New Hampshire presidential primary and empower independents to vote with their hearts!
Click here to listen to the ad and help us run even more>

We're a political non-profit advocating for independent-minded voters in America. While we can't endorse a candidate, we certainly can let everyone know that over 100,000 independents voted and who their choices were.

Our plan is to reach the 44% of voters in New Hampshire who are independents. And tell them all about IndependentPrimary.Com and the results.

These independents can vote in either the Democratic or Republican primaries on January 8th. They could swing the entire presidential primary process!

My Dear Progressives,


I want to thank everyone for a splendid joint effort today, and for the wonderful response to John Nirenberg's visit to Independence Mall. In addition , everyone who collected signatures on petitions for John to deliver to Pelosi. (Watch for details of John's attempt to deliver the petitions and hopefully there will be a number of supporters who will join him that day !)


Special Thanks goes to Monique, Amy, MontcoDFA gals: Mavra, Mary and Kay; Phyllis, Cheryl, Arn, Nancy&Ray, Dave Lindorff, Stuart Hutchinson, Bill Perry,Rob Kall, my hubby - Tim, and especially to John and Allison Nirenberg for all they are doing, in trying to bring attention to our cause.....IMPEACH BUSH & CHENEY.


It was wonderful seeing so many there from our Statewide New Jersey Impeach Group. You are truly great !!!!!!!!!!!!!


My love and graditude to all.....for you are true Patriots who really want to end the war, to establish peace and restore our Constitution. For all of you exemplify my saying....." Without Justice, There can be no peace!!!!!!"


Which brings me to our next event on Tuesday, January 1, 2008......THE MUMMER'S PARADE !!!!!!!!!!


I received approval from Impeach Bush Cards. com and I can enlarge the 52 cards to poster size along with acknowledgement of his site. I will have Tim working feverishly all day tomorrow to put them together. So that means I need at least 52 volunteers, each to hold one card.


On the backs, I will have single letters spelling out IMPEACH BUSH & CHENEY NOW ! That would give us 2 complete spellings with the 52 cards (complete with spaces).


Phyllis was very kind to print up 2000 of our action flyers to hand out at the parade:

In Closing , please let me know who would like one of the Uncle Sam hats to wear that day. I had them at Independence Mall today, but no one took theirs.....I really don't want to cart 4 boxes again on Tuesday unless I know someone is going to want them . Besides I will have 2000 handouts and the posters to handle. Unless I can get some volunteers to help us to carry them????

Thanks again for all you do....and let's keep trying to reach the masses who fail to see our country is in dire trouble and continue to believe by some miracle things will change.


Hey....."Nothing Changes...If Nothing Changes...and the only one who can change it is you!"


In Peace & Solidarity

Police State America - A Look Back and Ahead

FROM THE LIBERTY TREE OF ALEXANDRIA VIRGINIA
THE WORDS OF TACITUS RING TRUE:

A shocking crime was committed on the unscrupulous initiative of few individuals, with the blessing of more, and amid the passive acquiescence of all.

“When monarchs through their bloodthirsty commanders lay waste a country, they dignify their atrocity by calling it "Making Peace”“So, as you go into battle, remember your ancestors and remember your descendants”

“Fear is not in the habit of speaking truth…”

-Publius Cornelius Tacitus-

ALEXANDER HAMILTON ON IMPEACHMENT:

"The President of the United States would be liable to be impeached, tried, and upon conviction of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors, removed from office; and would afterwards be liable to prosecution and punishment in the ordinary course of law.
The person of the King of Great Britain is sacred and inviolable: There is no constitutional tribunal to which he is amenable, no punishment to which he can be subjected without involving the crisis of a national revolution.""[Impeachable conduct is] misconduct by public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust."
"The prosecution [of impeachments], will seldom fail to agitate the passions of the whole community, and to divide it into parties more or less friendly or inimical to the accused. The subjects of its jurisdiction are those offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust, and they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself."

Impeaching George W. Bush, President of the United States and Richard B. Cheney, Vice President Of The United States, of high crimes and misdemeanors, acts of misfeasance, malfeasance and nonfeasance in office, acts of war crimes violating the Third and Fourth Geneva Conventions and the U.S. War Crimes Act of 1996 , for failure to faithfully execute laws of this nation, willful disregard for and under mining of The Constitution Of These United States , and failure to fulfill their oaths of office .

Wherefore, George W. Bush, President of the United States and Richard B. Cheney, Vice President Of The United States, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office.

Resolved, That George W. Bush, President of the United States and Richard B. Cheney, Vice President of The United States are impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, acts of misfeasance, malfeasance and nonfeasance in office, acts of war crimes violating the Third and Fourth Geneva Conventions and the U.S. War Crimes Act, for failure to faithfully execute laws of this nation, willful disregard for and under mining of The Constitution Of These United States, and failure to fulfill their oaths of office, and that the following resolution of articles of impeachment be exhibited to the Senate:

Articles of impeachment exhibited by the House of Representatives of the United States of America in the name of itself and of all of the people of the United States of America, against George W. Bush, President of the United States of America and Richard B. Cheney, Vice President of The United States, in maintenance and support of its impeachment against them for high crimes, misdemeanors, acts of misfeasance, malfeasance and nonfeasance in office, acts of war crimes violating the Third and Fourth Geneva Conventions and the U.S. War Crimes Act, for failure to faithfully execute laws of this nation, willful disregard for and under mining of The Constitution Of These United States, and failure to fulfill their oaths of office.

WHEREAS, President George W. Bush, in his oath of office, swore to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States;” and

WHEREAS, Vice President Richard B. Cheney, in his oath of office, swore to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic;” and
WHEREAS, It is a fundamental principle of U.S. jurisprudence that no one is above the law and no one may operate outside of our constitutional system of checks and balances; and

WHEREAS, In the conduct of the office of President of the United States, George W. Bush, and Richard B. Cheney in the conduct of the office of Vice President of the United States, in violation of their constitutional oaths faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and Vice President of the United States respectively, to the best of their abilities, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed have:

(1) Attempted to impose a police state and a military dictatorship upon the people and Republic of the United States of America by means of "a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations" against the Constitution since September 11, 2001.

This subversive conduct includes but is not limited to trying to suspend the constitutional Writ of Habeas Corpus ; coercing the totalitarian U.S.A. Patriot Act through Congress; the mass-round-up and incarceration of foreigners; constituting extraordinary mock courts; depriving at least two United States citizens of their constitutional rights by means of military incarceration; interference with the constitutional right of defendants in criminal cases to lawyers; violating and subverting the Posse Comitatus Act ; unlawful and unreasonable searches and seizures; violating the First Amendments rights of the free exercise of religion, freedom of speech, peaceable assembly, and to petition the government for redress of grievances; packing the federal judiciary with hand-picked judges belonging to the totalitarian Federalist Society and undermining the judicial independence of the Constitution's Article III federal court system; violating the Third and Fourth Geneva Conventions and the U.S. War Crimes Act; violating The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and The International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination; reinstitution of the infamous "Cointelpro" Program ; violating the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, the Convention against Torture, and The Universal Declaration of Human Rights ; instituting the totalitarian Total Information Awareness Program; and establishing a totalitarian Northern Military Command for the United States of America itself,and

2) Violated The Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution .U.S. soldiers in the Middle East are overwhelmingly poor White, Black, and Latino and their military service is based on the coercion of a system that has denied viable economic opportunities to these classes of citizens. Under the Constitution, all classes of citizens are guaranteed equal protection of the laws, and calling on the poor and minorities to fight a war for oil to preserve the lifestyles of the wealthy power elite of this country is a denial of the rights of these soldiers; and

3) Violated the U.S. Constitution, federal law, and the United Nations Charter by bribing, intimidating and threatening others, including the members of the United Nations Security Council, to support belligerent acts against Iraq; and

4) Prepared, planned, and conspired to engage in a massive war and catastrophic aggression against Iraq by employing methods of mass destruction that has resulted in the killing of hundreds of thousands of civilians, many of whom have been children. This planning included the threatened use of nuclear weapons, and the use of such indiscriminate weapons and massive killings by aerial bombardment, or otherwise, of civilians, violates the Hague Regulations on land warfare, the rules of customary international law set forth in the Hague Rules of Air Warfare , the Four Geneva Conventions of 1949 and Protocol I thereto, the Nuremberg Charter, Judgment, and Principles , the Genocide Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and U.S. Army Field Manual 27-10 (1956) ; and

5) Committed the United States to acts of war without congressional consent and contrary to the United Nations Charter and international law.

From September, 2001 through January, 2003, the President and Vice President embarked on a course of action that systematically eliminated every option for peaceful resolution of the Persian Gulf crisis. Once they approached Congress for consent to war, tens of thousands of American soldiers' lives were in jeopardy - rendering any substantive debate by Congress meaningless. They have never received a Declaration of War by Congress, and in contravention of the written word, the spirit, and the intent of the U.S. Constitution has declared that they will, and did, go to war regardless of the views of the American people. In failing to seek and obtain a Declaration of War, George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney, acting in tandem, have acted in a manner contrary to their trusts as President and Vice President respectively and subversive of constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States; and

6) Planned, prepared, and conspired to commit crimes against the peace by leading the United States into aggressive war against Iraq in violation of Article 2(4) of the United Nations Charter , the Nuremberg Charter, Judgment, and Principles, the Kellogg-Briand Pact , U.S. Army Field Manual 27-10 (1956), numerous other international treaties and agreements, and the Constitution of the United States; and

7) Purposely conspired with others to manipulate the intelligence process so as to defraud United States of America and intentionally mislead and deceive Congress and the American public regarding the threat posed by Iraq so as to justify the initiation of a war in violation of Title 18 United States Code, Section 371, by fabricating a threat of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction to justify the use of the United States Armed Forces against the nation of Iraq in a manner damaging to our national security interests; and

8) Subverted the national security interests of the United States by setting the stage for the loss of more than 3300 United States service members; the loss of 650,000 Iraqi citizens since the United States invasion; the loss of approximately $500 billion in war costs which has increased our Federal debt; the loss of military readiness within the United States Armed Services due to overextension, lack of training and lack of equipment; the loss of United States credibility in world affairs; and the decades of predictable catastrophe and destabilization of the mid east region created by the invasion of Iraq; and

9) In their conduct, purposely manipulated the intelligence process to deceive the citizens and Congress of the United States about an alleged relationship between Iraq and al Qaeda in order to justify the use of the United States Armed Forces against the nation of Iraq in a manner damaging to our national security interests, the reputation and integrity of the United States of America; and

10) Openly threatened aggression against the Republic of Iran absent any real threat to the United States, and done so with the United States proven capability to carry out such threats, thus undermining the national security of the United States.

11) In the last three years repeatedly threatened Iran. However, they/we are legally bound by the U.S. Constitution's adherence to international law that prohibits threats of use of force.
(A) Article VI of the United States Constitution states, “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land.” Any provision of an international treaty ratified by the United States becomes the law of the United States.

(B) The United States is a signatory to the United Nations Charter, a treaty among the nations of the world. Article II, Section 4 of the United Nations Charter states, “All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.” The threat of force is illegal.

(C) Article 51 lays out the only exception, “Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of individual or collective self-defense if an armed attack occurs against a Member of the United Nations, until the Security Council has taken measures necessary to maintain international peace and security.” Iran has not attacked the United States; therefore any threat against Iran by the United States is illegal.

The President’s and the Vice President's deception upon the citizens and Congress of the United States that enabled the failed United States invasion of Iraq forcibly altered the rules of diplomacy such that their recent belligerent actions towards Iran are destabilizing and counterproductive to the national security of the United States; and

12) Acted to strip American citizens of their constitutional rights by ordering indefinite detention without access to legal counsel, without charge and without the opportunity to appear before a civil judicial officer to challenge the detention, based solely on the discretionary designation by the President of a U.S. citizen as an “enemy combatant”, all in subversion of law; and

13) Arrogated excessive power to the executive branch in violation of basic constitutional principles of the separation of powers while acting to undermine the authority of the legislative branch and the judiciary by issuing “signing statements” that claim that the executive branch may disregard laws enacted by Congress when the President or his subordinates deem it appropriate, and by the above referenced conduct.

In all of this George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney have acted in a manner contrary to their trusts as President and Vice President respectively and subversive of constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States; and

Wherefore, George W. Bush, President of the United States and Richard B. Cheney, Vice President Of The United States, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office; and

WHEREAS, In all of this George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney have acted in a manner contrary to their trust as President and Vice President, subversive of constitutional government to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice, and to the manifest injury of the people of The City of Alexandria Virginia, the State of Virginia and of the United States of America; and

WHEREAS, Petitions from the country at large may be presented by the Speaker of the House according to Clause 3 of House Rule XII;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the City Council of The City Of Alexandria Virginia, that George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney, by such conduct, warrant impeachment and trial, and removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT our senators and representatives in the United States Congress be, and they are hereby, requested to cause to be instituted in the Congress of the United States proper proceedings for the investigation of the activities of the George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney, to the end that they may be impeached and removed from such office.

AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT, a copy of this resolution as a petition request be delivered to the Office of the Clerk and entered in the United States Congressional Journal. The copies shall be marked with the word “Petition” at the top of the document and contain a copy of the original authorizing signatures of the Citizens Of the State of Virginia.
