Kucinich Files Articles of Impeachment Against Cheney
Impeachment IS on the Table!!!
Yesterday, Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich introduced House Resolution 333,
of Impeachment Against Richard B. Cheney. The three articles accuse
deceiving the public and Congress about Iraq WMD and a link between
al Quaeda, and of publicly threatening agression against Iran,
any real threat to the United States.” You can read a Synopsis,
Resolution, and supporting documentation at Kucinich’s
House website.Track this bill (has your Rep cosponsored?) at thomas.gov
(enter HRes 333 in the search bar, then click “Bill Summary and
to see cosponsors, committee assignment, etc.) We’ll need to lend
to this effort if it’s to succeed. Kucinich’s staff has said they need
call and write members of the House Judiciary Committee, and our own
right now! In addition, we need to heavily contact the media — an
internet search brings up almost nothing about either Kucinich’s press
conference held last night at 5pm, nor anything about the Articles
themselves. This is outrageous! If you’re subscribing to a “news” outlet
that’s not reporting on this important news, this is surely the time to
cancel your subscription and tell them why.
ACTION REQUEST: 911Truth.org is working on preparing
materials very specific to crimes committed by Cheney on 9/11–if you
in the district of one of the Judiciary Committee members and can help,
please contact Janice@911truth.org immediately. Thank you.

PledgetoImpeach: “WE THE PEOPLE’S PLEDGE TO SUPPORT A BILL TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH AND VICE-PRESIDENT DICK
CHENEY. I hereby solemnly swear to support a bill to impeach George W. Bush, and Vice-President Dick Cheney for crimes against the U.S. Constitution and International law. Should Congress fail to pass the bill, thereby forcing the Representative introducing the bill to ‘call in the pledges’, I swear to stay home from work, refrain from any unnecessary purchases, and remain in my home until the bill is passed. I do this in keeping with my duty as a citizen of the United States of America and
consistent with the powers reserved to The People by the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.”

ImpeachBush.org: Former Attorney General Ramsey Clark has stated:
“The crimes committed by President Bush and Vice President Cheney are numerous. The Bush Administration’s war of aggression, its assault on human dignity at Abu Ghraib, Guantánamo, demeaning the Geneva Conventions and Habeas Corpus, invading the privacy of any American it chooses, corrupting the rule of law in the Department of Justice and others.
“President Bush and Vice President Cheney should be held accountable as it is proscribed in the Constitution, Article II, Section 4: The President, Vice President, and all civil officers of the United States shall be removed from office or impeachment for and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.
“The authors of the Constitution were serious about impeachment and intended that the carefully prescribed procedures and principles of impeachment written into the text be faithfully executed. We, the growing impeachment movement that is sweeping this country from one end to the other, will make the members of the House of Representatives become as serious and courageous about impeachment as the Founding Fathers were.”
Wearenotbuyingit.org/ The week-long National Boycott To Impeach For Peace and Justice may be over, but the spirit of the campaign must remain in the forefront of our minds. Shutting down the corporate elite’s profit machine is the surest way to get across the message that we will not contribute to the destruction of our planet any longer, nor will we any longer participate in the ruining of local economies.
A week is a good start, but the will underlying our refusal must stay strong beyond the impeachment of this criminal regime. SPREAD THE WORD. For more information on the National Boycott To Impeach For Peace and Justice, see: www.911truth.org/article.php?story=20070416161008585
