Impeach Team Day 4

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   No comments

Dear Friends and Activists,

With tonight's news update the Impeach Team welcomes its first newest affliate member, Stacey Tallitsch, running for the U.S. House in the 1st district of Louisiana. Stacey has been an outspoken activist on many issues, restoring FEMA to competence, net neutrality, and now joins the Impeach Team calling for the impeachment of the president and vice-president now.


In the meantime, how outrageous is it that the NSA head who implemented the wiretap crimes of the Bush administration should now be considered for head of the CIA? All the members of the Impeach Team are strongly opposed to this nomination. While they are calling for impeachment, they are at the same time also calling to put accessories the high crimes of the president and president in positions of high public trust and responsibility.

It not just that they've been secretly monitoring without warrant virtually every domestic phone call in the US. Now we find they've been expressly targeting journalists for spying. Pretty slick system, isn't it? They make all evidence of their malfeasance classified information, and they threaten to prosecute anyone who would dare expose them in the media.

As to General Hayden in particular, when challenged on the wiretap scandal recently he proclaimed, "Believe me, if there is any amendment to the Constitution that employees of the National Security Agency are familiar with, it's the 4th," after having just denied that there was any reference to the expression "probable cause" in there to regulate unreasonable searches and seizures. Unfortunately for him the text of the 4th amendment to the Constitution is in the public record.


Even Republican leaders have admitted this spying program is "clearly and categorically wrong." What they have NOT done is challenge the administration in any way on their abuses of power. But that is what we must do, to continue to speak out, to stop the Hayden nomination, and to correct the underlying problem itself, the abuse of our democracy by calling for impeachment now.

What we are asking is that everyone who reads this should contribute at least ten dollars to help these brave candidates run their "call to action" ads. They want to run ads on Air America, not just in Los Angeles, but nationally to build the people's impeachment movement. They want to run ads in the L.A. Times so that the impeachment movement has real visibility. If each and every one of you can just contribute what you can now, this could be a real tipping point.


If you can contribute more, what a blessing that would be. There are many for whom $25, $50 or $100 is something they could comfortably do. Imagine what it would be like if you were so fortunate as to be able to contribute the campaign limit of $2100 to one of these worthy candidates. That's enough to buy an entire WEEK's worth of Air American streaming ads, calling on progressives everywhere to join the impeachment movement now.

We have spent two years complaining about the incumbents we have now, watching as they have failed us again and again. Now we have the chance to actually DO something about it. What we are asking is that even if you respond to no other appeal this year, THIS is the one that counts. THIS is the one that could mean the difference between being stuck with the same smug losers for what could be the last gasp of our great democracy, or replacing them NOW with candidates with the courage to take a stand for us.
