Kucinich speaks out for impeachment

Hurrah for Representative Dennis Kucinich for introducing H. Res. 333, articles of impeachment against Richard B. Cheney, Vice President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors. I may be bogged down in my move from my old apartment but Rep. Kucinich has taken a courageous stand and deserves support. Read more about the text of the resolution and his press conference about the resolution at Then call your congressmember at 202-224-3121 and encourage support. If anybody every deserved impeachment, it is this current corrupt administration. Pray for them. God forgive them. But impeach them. Before they cause more damage. I for one will be talking to Congressmember Joe Crowley.

Peace hugs,

PS Went to Rep. Kucinich's site and found his statement about the Iraq Supplemental Conference Report HR 1591l:

Washington, Apr 25 - WASHINGTON, DC — Following passage of the supplemental conference report this evening, Congressman Dennis Kucinich released the following statement:

This “Supplemental” is a plan to extort Iraq’s oil wealth under the guise of a plan to end the war. Funds for the security of the Iraqi government are contingent upon Iraq giving up control of oil. This legislation is a repugnant, high pressure tactic to force Iraq to pass a “hydrocarbon act” which will effectively privatize the oil wealth of Iraq. The key deception is that the hydrocarbon act, which sounds like an environmental law, lets Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds “share” whatever is left after US oil companies take unconscionable profits. This bill is not a plan for peace. It is blood for oil. It is a guarantee of more war and the continued U.S. occupation of Iraq.

More grist for discussion with my Congressmember in between moving and emptying boxes. "No rest for the weary."

The REAL story: the complicit 85 unfired U.S. attorneys

Taking time from moving and taxes, I must comment on John Nichols' piece on Senators Expand Inquiry of Political Prosecutions. Senator Leahy is pursuing more information on the very weak blatantly political prosecution of a Democratic Wisconsin state employee. If you don't know about this story, please read the article, but I posted this comment at Common Dreams:

The last paragraph says it all:

“Ultimately, the big story of the scandal at the Department of Justice will not be that of the eight fired prosecutors. It will be that of the 85 who were not fired, and of what they did or did not do to keep their jobs.”

This is the story the rightist corporate media has NOT been pursuing, though Air America Radio’s very astute Rachel Maddow HAS been emphasizing. Thank God the Senate Judiciary committee is finally awakening to it. We have to push this too and force the issue into wider debate.

Statofthesea [one of the other commenters] speaks about the belief of stolen elections. It is NOT a question of belief — there is absolute proof for 2000 and clear reasons to doubt the 2004 outcomes, from the exit polling to election fraud to the rigged Ohio recount for which two employees are serving time. The NY Times printed in November 2001 that anyway the Florida ballots were counted, Kerry won, but they buried this point deep in the article (paragraph 28?) Thom Hartmann suggests because with 911 they did not wish to question the legitimacy of Bush.

John Nichols is terrific and anyone interested in hearing him speak about some of his stuff should check out his various interviews (Oct. 8, 2006 in particular) by Bob McChesney on WILL radio’s Media Matters show: — great stuff!

I think I will buy a copy of Nichols’ THE GENIUS OF IMPEACHMENT and send it to my congressmember. BOTTOM LINE:

Nancy Pelosi should put impeachment BACK on the table.

Impeachment -- for this and so many reasons, including an illegal invasion: Nancy Pelosi, are you listening?

Peace hugs,

A Move on Bliss Street

Quiet, behind in my mail, I am busy creating personal peace as I continue my move to a different place. Thank God and Marc Leavitt, I've found a new home on Bliss Street. Bear with me, my friends -- I've got lots of boxes to deal with and am finding lots of stuff for All Saints' spring rummage sale. Please keep me in your prayers! Moving isn't easy.

Peace hugs,
Kate Anne
