Associated Press: Conyers endorses national effort to impeach Bush, Cheney

And, in the Washington Post today…..do I hear the sound of crickets chirping? Hello000, hello? Anyone?

Thanks to the internet here’s the story.

Franklin County, MA Overwhelmingly Votes to Impeach & Congressman Still Doesn’t Get It.

Letter to the Editor: Ann Arbor, MI

Need to impeach Bush transcends politics

Political tactics involving matters of impeachment are one thing, but protecting the nation from being plunged into another criminal war is more important than routine political calculation. The means by which the Bushies deceived our country and damaged its economy must be exposed so that they cannot be exploited again by any other administration, regardless of which party holds the majority. The most effective deterrent in that regard is to impeach the wrongdoers so their deeds can be investigated and any deserved punishment meted out.

Rep. Conyers To Hold Impeachment Town Hall

Rep. John Conyers, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, plans to hold a Town Hall meeting this Tuesday on impeachment proceedings against Bush and Cheney. The city of Detroit just passed its own impeachment resolution, which shows that these local efforts have an effect! While Takoma Park can’t impeach Bush or Cheney, if we did passed a resolution, it would get Rep. Van Hollen’s attention, and he does have that power. Read more>>

Letter in today’s Seattle Times says it all

No separation of power

Editor, The Times:

After the Democrats took over Congress, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi pledged “impeachment is off the table,” assuming that President Bush would now seek a bipartisan accommodation. Events rapidly showed she was delusional.

Now, after preparing an emasculated version of the Iraq war bill, she has threatened to take the president to court if he resorts to a signing statement to circumvent it. All this will do is achieve a court ruling saying it’s perfectly constitutional for a president to use signing statements to ignore laws passed by the Congress.

Bush has argued that, since he is commander in chief, all legislative, judicial and executive power are in his control for as long as there is the threat of terrorism. Basically, the separation of powers no longer exists in America. This is blatant abuse of power, and it is Congress, not the courts, that has the responsibility to take corrective action.

This is precisely why the founders of our nation included an impeachment clause in the Constitution. Impeachment is the only way Bush can be contained for his egregious use of signing statements, by which he has invalidated many laws (or parts of laws) passed by Congress since 2001.
