On Line Petition to Remove Pelosi as Speaker of the House of Representatives

To:  U.S. House of Representatives

In the event of a rogue presidency, the founders of our great nation provided for protections for us, the citizens, under the constitution in the form of a process called impeachment.

Though rarely spoken, the word itself holds great power in that it binds the president and his entire administration to the laws of the nation and makes them all accountable to the people. In so doing, they are bound to the people; their fates interlocked, to rise and fall as one with the people.

As a constant threat, impeachment forces the president and his administration to work within the confines of our system of checks and balances.

Without impeachment, there is no limit to what a rogue president can do.

Though the process has rarely been used, it has never been needed or justified as much as it is right now.

Yet, Nancy Pelosi began her term as Speaker of the House of Representatives by announcing “Impeachment was off the table”, thus giving this corrupt administration a free hand in their last two years in office.

The documented corruption under this administration has reached levels unheard of in previous decades. And that is just what we know about. Through either neglect or malice, this administration has failed to protect the people of this country from attack, graft, and outright corruption swindles time and time again. While instead, offering unprecidented levels of protections for multinational coporations at dire costs to the physical, social, and economic well being of our fellow citizens. 

Record numbers of administration officials have faced charges and been found guilty only to be pardoned by the president himself, negating the very rule of law that this country was founded upon.

This president's record setting use of Presidential Signing Statements are arguably an illegal form of a line item veto and they threaten to seriously undermine the very fabric of our Constitutional Republic. 

This administration has suppressed scientific evidence of serious threats to the people of this nation with regard to global warming as well as air quality levels in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks in New York. Both of these decisions were made in an effort to produce higher profit margins for corporate interests or to reopen the stock market and to take advantage of the unstable markets.

This administration has lied and misused manipulated intelligence to create a war of aggression on false pretenses.

And even today, we see the how administration agencies work to spread misinformation to the public about another country, with the same kind of lies that took us into Iraq. This is at least criminal negligence and at worst, a war of aggression.

Never before has a President and Vice President deserved to be impeached more than these.

Yet our Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, is working behind the scenes with House Democrats, not to build a consensus for impeachment, but to do just the opposite. To keep others from succeeding in their effort to hold this president accountable by means of impeachment.

This is unacceptable.

Nancy Pelosi MUST be replaced as Speaker of the House.
