Impeachment: Congress has the responsibility to police the President in our balance of powers. If they all fail can the people do it themselves? Hear what John Connolly has to say on the issue that is moving Americans to action.

Americans are asking Congress to take action, and the action they want are bills of impeachment sent to George W. Bush and Richard Cheney. The responsibilities invested in Congress include the obligation to oversee the executive branch, ensuring that there is balance. This is in effect a mandate to police the activities of the President of the United States, yet Nancy Pelosi has said that despite the egregious behavior of this administration she will not take the issue of impeachment off the table.
Americans sweated blood this past year to change the make up of Congress because it is Congress that is empowered to take action. 51% of Americans want Bush impeached.

On December 10th many Americans will participate in Impeachment Day, with events taking place across the country to discuss the causes for impeachment and plan further action. Those causes include the War in Iraq, lying to get us into that war, using terrorism to start a war that enriched those closely connected to the Bush Administration, including Richard Cheney, violating the Constitution, attempting to alter the Constitution, which sets forth the inherent rights of Americans, using the political process to first covertly engage in torture and then to cover it up. The list goes on, covering activities that include the political manipulation of America's court system and systemic violations of the rights of Americans using the Patriot Act to enable spying on all Americans.

David Swanson, Michael Hersh, and others have come together to take the issue of Impeachment off the table and consider what the people must do to clean America's house.

On this week's Spiritual Politician, the show that exposes the nastiness in every part of our lives, John Connolly, long time investigative journalist and commentator, will discuss those options and the role of Congress as a policeman for the presidency.

John Connolly has done stories on Arnold Schwarzenegger,"Arnold the Barbarian," during the sexual harassment scandal that erupted in Schwarzenegger's successful 2004 campaign for governor of California, on Donald Trump, revealing that the flamboyant figure was not a billionaire but broke. In August 1991 Connolly wrote an article for Spy that exposed the illegal transfer of the MacMillan employee pension funds by then owner Robert Maxwell. Upon publication, Maxwell returned the funds.

Connolly's reporting was praised in the Columbia School of Journalism Review. Connolly has since been nominated for four national magazine awards for investigative journalism, including one for the July 1993 US magazine cover story Hollywood Madam, which was the first major magazine article to break the Heidi Fleiss story.

Can the people do it themselves? What obstacles to they face? John Connolly, the long time investigator of wrongs that evade retribution has insights Americans need to hear.
December 10th is Impeachment Day. What will it take to return justice to America? All of us need answers.

The show airs live Friday, December 1, 2006 at 4 PM PDT
