Impeach Bush and Cheney, A Somber, Sober Sunday Morning Message

Impeach Bush And Cheney,
A Somber, Sober
Sunday Morning

Impeachment of Bush and Cheney Must be accomplished despite every effort of Speaker Pelosi to stand in the way!

The Impeachment Play Offs Have Begun!

"Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!" ~ Patrick Henry

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."~ Samuel Adams

"From the east to the west blow the trumpet to arms! Through the land let the sound of it flee; Let the far and the near all unite, with a cheer, In defense of our Liberty Tree."~ Thomas Paine

Impeaching Bush and Cheney means we are going to have to go over the head of the speaker. Read her words carefully! In a post I am preparing I am going to sharing how all us of our being talked about as ineffectual politically polite/correct, civilly obedient wimps compared to the
“patriots of the 60s”. I sure as hell am not enjoying reading the material in my desktop folder!

Some of the commentary surfacing is from our enemies, some from our friends, and some is from folks who have given up on our ways and have lost all faith in a system approach that includes petitions, placards, emails and fax attacks.

They have tired of, if you will excuse the football analogy, our grinding it out Woody Hayes ground game style” and are looking for the dramatic advance of our cause likened to the
long pass.

We’re in the play off stage and we can’t depend on the administration to fumble because they have proven they are good at recovering the ball and the play review people are in their pockets. We haven’t scored a touchdown yet, just a few field goals, and we’re behind and running out of time.

Yes, I know we can continue contesting the game after it’s over but I assure you they will be even less enthusiastic support for that effort.

There is merit in what these advocates have to say and there is real food for thought in their words. More important from my point of view is the fact that the questions posed by these growing detractor and defectors are questions we really need to answer for ourselves!

I had dinner with some folks here who are all excited about a local, the brother of Congressman Jim Moran, a Kucinich signer, possibly becoming the next Governor of Virginia, and excited at the proposition that would have something else to do other than try to aid in the Impeachment of our White House resident criminals.

They don’t get it! Damn it is so depressing trying to get people to understand that the problems we have in America will all go away when George goes back to brush cutting in Crawford.

Do we really have to crash in the back alley of history before we wake up and shake off the cobwebs and fight for what is right, and what is ours?


U.S. House of Representatives Speaker
Nancy Pelosi says she’s drawing heat from fellow Democratic lawmakers as well as people across the nation for refusing to move to impeach President George W. Bush or Vice President Dick Cheney.

“I go through airports, and people have buttons as if they knew I was coming,” Pelosi said with a smile, mimicking a protester pointing to an “Impeach” button on their chest.

But the California Democrat said she is sticking to her position that trying to remove Bush or Cheney would be divisive, and she added, most likely unsuccessful. If the House voted to impeach Bush and Cheney, a two-thirds vote would be needed in the closely divided Senate to oust them.

Many Democrats and civil liberties groups have accused the Bush administration of misleading the United States into the Iraq war and violating the rights of U.S. citizens with its warrantless surveillance program. The White House denies the charges.

In helping Democrats win back control of Congress in 2006 from
Republicans, Pelosi said she would not push for impeachment despite a number of calls to do so.

Speaking with reporters, she recalled that she wanted to focus on unifying the nation, passing the Democrats’ legislative agenda — not picking an impeachment fight with the White House.

“It was my belief that an impeachment of the Vice President or the President … would be very divisive in our country, and that is what I believed then,” Pelosi said. “It should have come to no surprise when I became Speaker I said it again, and I continue to hold that view.”

U.S. House of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, paused when asked what she’s looking for in the next president to help produce a more productive Congress.

Then she said with a grin and without naming names, “The first trait, I would say, is that we want it to be a Democrat who shares the values of the American people.”

Pelosi, who has had a number of spats with Republican President
George W. Bush, added, “I put value on a president who can bring people together.”

But she does not intend to endorse a presidential candidate until her party selects its nominee.

Still, Pelosi told reporters on Thursday: “Any measure of a great president, I think, should be one who has a vision, he or she … that takes us to a new horizon, thinking in a bigger and more entrepreneurial way about the future.”

The mission at the moment remains going after the Judiciary Committee, Pelosi, Hoyer and Conyers, supporting Kucinich and Wexler efforts, but at one of these moments we are going to have to make some serious decisions as to how to affect the paradigm shift in the American political system that is required to realize the reconstruction of the America we desire.

Until that moment arises, we as a nation are like an alcoholic that has not yet hit the bottom, except we keep sipping from the system to clear our heads for the next day. That is maintenance alcoholic living in denial and working him/herself into failure and collapse.

Some who hit the bottom make it back up, others are lost forever. We see the seeds and structure for the failure of our Republic, and those seeds may not come to full fruit before the Bush Administration leaves town, but somewhere down the line the seeds and roots of ruin have to be rid from the garden before they dominate, strangle and choke the life out of everything we know to be our democratic system of government!

It is our garden and we have to do the weeding work and uprooting the deep poisonous vines

Unless we can make a serious run at defeating Speaker Pelosi in her reelection bid; there is no hope of changing her position!

“History shows that great nations rise and great nations fall, but the autopsy of history is that all great nations commit suicide.” I believe that America is headed in that direction.”
--British Historian Arnold Toynbee

As a military veteran, I took an oath to: “Support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic... So help me, God.” But this begs the question: Who are these enemies of the Constitution? Are there foreign enemies who would destroy our Constitution? Does Al-Qaeda have the power to seize our civil and constitutional rights? No. Our overseas enemies cannot take our freedoms and civil liberties away from us. Only America’s “domestic” enemies could pull off such a feat. So many times we focus only on America’s foreign enemies, while forgetting that America also has “domestic” enemies.

Most of America’s past leaders have understood that America was far too powerful ever to be destroyed by our foreign enemies. If we ever lost our freedoms, it would be because we brought it upon ourselves. Listen carefully to the words of Abraham Lincoln:

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves… Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step over the ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never!—All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth in their military chest; with a Bonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a Thousand years. At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”

We must understand that America is at war! However, this war is not being fought on some foreign soil, with tanks and planes. It is being fought here at home. It is being fought in our courts, it is being fought in our schools and it is being fought in our churches. I am not referring to a war against terror, but a war for the very soul of America. It is a war of ideology and it is a war for the political, spiritual and moral direction of this nation.

For over 80 years there has been a silent war raging in America, between those who believe in the type of America that our founding fathers created and those whose single goal is to destroy it. And the battleground for this war is our society, our schools, our churches and our government.

As we progress we will see how the “American form of government” and the “social system” that our founding fathers created has been gradually overthrown and ultimately destroyed, and how another form of government has evolved and replaced it, especially with regard to our civil and state rights. Will we understand in time?

The End…The Rose Garden Untended…..
