Please act to impeach Bush before the pardons start

For a congressional representative, refusal to impeach at this point is likely to be based on the desire that future administrations have the same unconstitutional freedom of action Bush and Cheney have given themselves. The belief that we need an imperial presidency that can violate the law at will is founded on the belief that we are entitled to operate an empire--which can never be done by the means of limited government a republic allows. That Congress, even at this extremity, still refuses to impeach should be the single most alarming fact of the last eight years. 
The Democrats are now in a perfect position to organize impeachment. Even if the current Congress does not want to, the next Congress can. The in-coming Congress should start organizing itself now so that it can impeach between January 3 when it enters office and January 20 when Bush and Cheney leave. It can be done: many charges are patently clear, and the impeachment of Andrew Johnson took only 10 days.

Before He
Pardons Himself

• IMPEACH BUSH Before He Pardons Himself •

A murderous "leader"

usalone.com14 November 2008 — According to Seymour Hersh there is a conga line of insiders waiting until January 20th to spill the beans on the gross criminality of the George Bush-Dick Cheney administration. Waiting . . . because if they did it now the two of them would be tarred and feathered on the way out the door.


WE CAN AND MUST DEMAND THE IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT both Bush and Cheney for what is already known. At the very least the defiance of congressional subpoenas at the behest of the White House is an open and shut case for accountability now.

Impeach Now Action Page:


Because as his final constitutional insult, his final spit in the face to the American people and all rule of law, it is transparently obvious that Bush is planning the most wholesale and wrongful pardon of the worst political criminals in American history, his whole criminal gang, INCLUDING himself.

And don't think that is not their precise plan. Please, what power has Bush NOT abused? What heinous, self-serving, shameless and dishonest act has he ever shied away from, when he was torturing and eavesdropping and lying us into wars of corporate aggression. Does anyone doubt that is what he is planning on doing?

And when you submit this action page, you will have one last chance to get one of the "Impeach Both!!!" caps, which after January 20th will no longer be available from us for love or for money.

Impeach Now Action Page:

Will Congress now act? That is not the yardstick of the worth of our activism. We speak out because we must speak out, whether we are heeded or not. Let history record that we spoke out until the last minute to the eternal shame of those who did not. Because when enough of us speak out at once, the worst thing that can possibly happen is that we are building the progressive base for the REAL change of the future.

So Bush most certainly is planning on pardoning himself. And all the right wing lock down ideologues in the corporate controlled media will call it "healing." Let's all make nice with war criminals? Shall we all make nice with the gang rape of our economy, our environment and our Constitution? We think not.

And one more thing. You know that come January 20th the right wing will start calling for the impeachment of our new president, over a endless litany of the most ridiculous of trivial trifles. In fact it has already started even though he has not even taken office. If they are so hot on impeaching someone, let them speak out now, when it truly is called for, or shut the hell up in 66 days.

Please TAKE ACTION NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.
