democrats.com | June, 9 2009

“Congressman Dennis Kucinich is on the floor of the House of Representatives right now introducing 35 articles of impeachment against President George W. Bush.

Bob Fertik, President of Democrats.com, said: “We’ve waited seven years to find one Member of Congress brave enough to stand up for our Constitution, for which generations of Americans have fought and died. We are thrilled and honored that Dennis Kucinich has chosen to be that one genuine patriot. We congratulate him on his historic leadership, and pledge to do everything in our power to persuade Congress to adopt all 35 Articles and put George W. Bush on trial before the Senate of the United States, exactly as the Founding Fathers wanted.”

 

Revealed: Secret plan to keep Iraq under US control

independent.co.uk | June 5, 2008

“Bush wants 50 military bases, control of Iraqi airspace and legal immunity for all American soldiers and contractors

A secret deal being negotiated in Baghdad would perpetuate the American military occupation of Iraq indefinitely, regardless of the outcome of the US presidential election in November.”

Mission accomplished! — “Responsible Plan” dropped off at Van Hollen’s office

Hank Prensky, Julius West, Michelle Bailey, Joy Austin-LaneOn Thursday morning, May 1 — the 5th anniversary of Bush’s notorious “Mission Accomplished” speech — Michelle Bailey, Hank Prensky, Joy Austin-Lane and I (Thomas Nephew) paid a short visit to Congressman Chris Van Hollen’s local office. Our mission — to bring our Congressman a copy of “A Responsible Plan to End the War in Iraq,” and discuss it with his staff.

We met with Van Hollen staff member Julius West in Van Hollen’s Hyattsville office on New Hampshire Avenue. We introduced the plan as a comprehensive legislative agenda calling for a complete exit from Iraq, with no permanent bases, and a “diplomatic offensive” to gain support from countries neighboring Iraq. The plan also calls for aid to Iraqi refugees, health and education benefits for veterans, reforms in the military, and reforms of the political process that has let the Bush administration get away with so many high crimes and misdemeanors — and often identifies specific, pending legislation that will help achieve those goals.

Delivering “A Responsible Plan to End the War in Iraq” to Van Hollen office

A Responsible Plan to End the War in Iraq - Click here to add your supportThursday, May 1 is the fifth anniversary of “Mission Accomplished” – the day George Bush stood on an aircraft carrier declaring major combat operations over in Iraq. Five years later, the costs of war keep mounting and there’s still no end in sight.

In 1994, the Republicans came up with a Contract with America that they worked to implement as soon as they were sworn in. This time around, it will be up to us to make sure that whoever is elected to Congress move briskly to enact the Responsible Plan to End the War in Iraq and bring our troops home.

The plan, developed by Darcy Burner, Donna Edwards, and other progressive congressional candidates, calls for a timetable to end the war, for the U.S. to renounce the development of permanent bases in Iraq, and for a “diplomatic offensive” to solve regional issues. It also proposes legislation to avoid future Iraq wars and restore the Constitution, calling for legislation against presidential signing statements, against outsourcing torture, and for facilitating lawsuits against warrantless electronic surveillance. It thus addresses many of the issues listed in last year’s Takoma Park City Council impeachment resolution — including, of course, the fraudulent case for the war. For more on the plan, visit the http://www.responsibleplan.com/ web site.

Please join us to deliver a copy of the Responsible Plan to End the War to Chris Van Hollen..

We will gather as a group at Savory Cafe (7071 Carroll Ave., Takoma Park) around 8:30am on Thursday morning, go over the talking points, take a photo and then deliver the plan to the Congressional office at 9:00AM; that address is:

6475 New Hampshire Ave
Hyattsville, MD (map)

If you prefer to meet us at the New Hampshire Avenue office at 9am, that’s OK, too, but some of us will be at Savory with cars for those who could use a lift to Van Hollen’s office. The meeting has been arranged in advance, but will be brief, ending before 9:30AM.

Hope you can join us!

blog.wired.com – 2/17/2008

“With consumer-grade cameras wielded both by soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan and by family members and the media in Washington, expect some harrowing images and testimony to emerge. Should these videos reach enough Americans, they will reignite the smoldering debate over American military conduct that began with the Abu Ghraib photos and the controversies over Guantanamo.”

935 Reasons for Impeachment

Publicintegrity.org | Jan/08

Bush and seven of his administration’s top officials, including Vice President Dick Cheney, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, made at least 935 false statements in the two years following September 11, 2001, about the national security threat posed by Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.
