Human Rights and Impeachment Day

Ten Reasons to Impeach George Bush and Dick Cheney
I ask Congress to impeach
President Bush and Vice President Cheney for the following reasons:
1.
Violating the United Nations Charter by launching an illegal "War of Aggression"
against Iraq without cause, using fraud to sell the war to Congress and the
public, misusing government funds to begin bombing without Congressional
authorization, and subjecting our military personnel to unnecessary harm,
debilitating injuries, and deaths.
2. Violating U.S. and international law
by authorizing the torture of thousands of captives, resulting in dozens of
deaths, and keeping prisoners hidden from the International Committee of the Red
Cross.
3. Violating the Constitution by arbitrarily detaining Americans,
legal residents, and non-Americans, without due process, without charge, and
without access to counsel.
4. Violating the Geneva Conventions by targeting
civilians, journalists, hospitals, and ambulances, and using illegal weapons,
including white phosphorous, depleted uranium, and a new type of napalm.
5.
Violating U.S. law and the Constitution through widespread wiretapping of the
phone calls and emails of Americans without a warrant.
6. Violating the
Constitution by using "signing statements" to defy hundreds of laws passed by
Congress.
7. Violating U.S. and state law by obstructing honest elections in
2000, 2002, 2004, and 2006.
8. Violating U.S. law by using paid propaganda
and disinformation, selectively and misleadingly leaking classified information,
and exposing the identity of a covert CIA operative working on sensitive WMD
proliferation for political retribution.
9. Subverting the Constitution and
abusing Presidential power by asserting a "Unitary Executive Theory" giving
unlimited powers to the President, by obstructing efforts by Congress and the
Courts to review and restrict Presidential actions, and by promoting and signing
legislation negating the Bill of Rights and the Writ of Habeas Corpus.
10.
Gross negligence in failing to assist New Orleans residents after Hurricane
Katrina, in ignoring urgent warnings of an Al Qaeda attack prior to Sept. 11,
2001, and in increasing air pollution causing global warming.

Great post, thanks. Don't know if you've seen these two pretty shocking videos from Iraq yet or not (kid chasing bottle of water, car getting crushed), but both star the US Military and put it in a very negative light. I have them up on my site at www.minor-ripper.blogspot.com ..You have to wonder what these soldiers were thinking when videotaping this stuff...

Impeach for Peace has created holiday impeachment cards that allow your friends and family to initiate the impeachment process. Deck the halls of congress with colorful impeachment petitions! Now that Representative McKinney has introduced Articles of Impeachment to Congress, it's time for us to show the other Members of Congress our support. So, Impeach for Peace created the Holiday Impeachment image, and researched a company that will allow you to send jumbo sized postcards along with a personalized message using your web browser. To learn more about this method of inititiating impeachment, go to: http://ImpeachForPeace.org/HolidayImpeachNow.html

Soon, Santa will be delivering sacks and sacks of mail to Nancy Pelosi initiating impeachment via the House of Representative's own rules. This legal document is as binding as if a State or if the House itself passed the impeachment resolution (H.R. 635). What better gift to give this holiday season than the restoration of our democracy? Truly the gift that keeps on giving. Over this past year, Bush has become an even greater threat to our Constitution. Lucky for us, the rules of the US House of Representatives allow for individual citizens like you and I to initiate the impeachment process directly! This process was successfully used to impeach in the past.

Be a part of history and have a merry impeachment this season!

Nice list!!!

Outgoing Congresswoman Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-Ga) has orchestrated her swan song on Capitol Hill – the introduction of a bill that calls for the impeachment of President Bush.
