Congress Worse Than Bush & Company

It is not surprising that when Dennis Kuccinich introduced the privileged motion in the House of Representatives, laying out the grounds for the Impeachment of President Bush, it was met with a cool reception by the Executive branch of our government. It is not surprising that it was met with a cool reception by the Republicans in the House.

After all, these are the criminals and the co-conspirators. They are the ones who have committed the crimes. They are the responsible parties. Of course they do not want an investigation or to hand over incriminating evidence. That is why the constitution provides remedies and allows for criminals committing high crimes to be prosecuted. That is why Congress has the power to hold Impeachment hearings, to subpeona evidence and to remove a President if necessary.

This Criminal President has been stonewalling Congress at every turn, failing to allow testimony, failing to produce documents all the while expanding our Republic into a dictatorship with hardly a peep from Congress. But then, what would you expect from a criminal?

It is also not surprising that the consolidated corporate Main Stream Media that manufactures consent and flushes important information down the rabbit hole, uncritically parroting propaganda from the President himself, has failed to immediately begin a national discussion. To flush out the information in the Articles, to discuss with the American People the merits of the articles.

No, just like the Iraq war, by not talking about it, by not showing images, by failing to have broad issue oriented discussions, they have again made important news virtually disappear. (Turn them off).

Anyone that has taken the time to read the Articles of Impeachment knows that there is a lot of meat to them. It is not a bullet point summary. It is not a mild accusation. It is a very detailed, well thought out and well cited document. Crimes were committed, and full evidentiary hearings with credible witnesses will bring the behind the scenes details to the American people. No doubt, justice will then be served.

But instead, crimes worse than those of Bush & Company are being committed by Conyers, Pelosi and every democratic member of Congress barring Dennis Kuccinich and the two co-sponsors.

Every democratic member of Congress is complicit. They are all guilty, but none worse than Pelosi and Conyers.

The Democrats' complete failure to react, their failure to immediately discuss and support the Impeachment Resolution is worse than that of Bush and Company. They started the war through lies. Congress has continually funded the war and taken the remedy for the crimes committed, "off the table".

Well, it's time to put it back on the table. If not now, When?

No more money, no more votes for any member of Congress that cannot say the words "Immediate Impeachment".

Nancy Pelosi, after receiving a mandate from the people to get us out of Iraq and begin Impeachment – started her term as Speaker of the House by saying that Impeachment is off the table, effectively wiping out the demands of every American screaming for Congress to do their constitutionally mandated job.


Impeachment is not an inconvenience. It is not untimely. It is not a political pawn in an election year. It is THE issue of our time.


Our nation went to war under false pretenses. There was NO 9/11 connection to Iraq. They did not pose an imminent threat to the safety of the United States. We committed crimes. We broke International Law.
