Eight House Dems Back Impeachment Probe
Eight House Democrats have announced their support for legislation that would establish an impeachment inquiry into whether President Bush for committed high crimes and misdemeanors against the U.S. in connection with the Iraq war.
HR 635 calls for "Creating a select committee to investigate the administration's intent to go to war before congressional authorization, manipulation of pre-war intelligence, encouraging and countenancing torture [and] retaliating against critics."
The legislation says that the select committee should "make recommendations regarding grounds for possible impeachment."
The bill, first proposed by Rep. John Conyers last month, claims that there is "at least a prima facie case that these actions" violated federal law.
According to the Atlanta Progressive News, HR635 has attracted the support of seven co-sponsors so far, including Rep. Lois Capps (D-CA), Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX), Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Rep. Donald Payne (D-NJ), Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), and Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA).
It's not so amazing. Told by their leaders that they cannot escape their lot except by government gifts, they sit in a morally decaying culture waiting for someone else to do something. Their reps repeat that they are trying, but the white majority won't let their rescue happen. And so it goes...
Well, may be not now, but if they win the House, it will be the first item on the agenda. Which is why we need to make sure they do not win.
In the minds of some few Dem'crats, it has become an impeachable offense to even BE a Republican. So the drumbeat will always be there, and stirred up at the least provocation.
The times have not been kind to the aging hippies who make up most of the voice of the Dem'crat party today. All their "new ways" have proven to be but the old tired ways with a bad retread job, and now there is failure after failure in the attempts to convert the US into a third-world (and third-rate) country.
A growing percentage of what is laughingly called "the leadership" within the Dem'crat party do not regard themselves as citizens of the US, but as "world citizens". Their concept of patriotism revolves around "the world", as opposed to that troublemaker country in which they had the misfortune to be born.
Nationalism has no place in their intellectual view, and is probably what they consider to be the #1 problem in the world today, leading to endless conflicts over "sovereignty" and ethnic differences.
"Terrorists" are just "world citizens" trying to break up this fixation with nationalism, and as such, they are noble warriors in the war on US nationalism. "World citizens" cannot, by definition, exclude terrorists from their circle of camaraderie.
You're right. And don't forget that in their minds, the only reason socialism hasn't worked is that they weren't in charge.
Will it ever occur to this group that there are a few million people living between New York and California that don't give a crap what they think?
Its a damned shame DDT has been banned.
Not like it hasn't been tried before...
PRESIDENTS WHO HAD IMPEACHMENT RESOLUTIONS INTRODUCED AGAINST THEM IN CONGRESS:
John Tyler ("upsurging presidential powers")
Andrew Johnson (violation of Tenure of Office Act)
Grover Cleveland (acting against the public decency)
Hebert Hoover ("extreme neglect of duties and incompetance in office")
Harry Truman (Communist subversion in government)
Richard Nixon (Watergate)
Ronald Reagan (Iran-Contra)
Bill Clinton (perjury, obstruction of justice, and abuse of power)
PRESIDENTS'S WHOSE IMPEACHMENT RESOLUTIONS WERE ACTUALLY APPROVED BY THE JUDICIARY FOR A VOTE INSTEAD OF LAUGHED AT:
PRESIDENTS WHO WERE ACTUALLY IMPEACHED BY THE FULL HOUSE:
PRESIDENTS WHO WERE CONVICTED AFTER IMPEACHMENT AND REMOVED FROM OFFICE:
BTW, since the libwacks now think "lying" about Iraq's "weapons of mass destruction" is "impeachable", does this mean they think Clinton should have been re-impeached after he decided to bomb Iraq to stop "weapons of mass destruction" during his FIRST impeachment?
How about some of those rats that won with 55 or less joining in? Hee hee hee.
So lets see...It was Republicans that killed the impeachment against Clinton even though they had the power to carry it through.
And, if it ever comes to it, it will be Republicans that made it possible to happen, even though without them it would never have gotten off the ground.
The question is, why would the Dems start something they know they do not have the power to carry through?
This life long Republican is a whole lot less Republican than I used to be.
NOOOO don't send them to jail, send them to Iraq, and send that many of our troops home, let them fight the killers over there, then JUST maybe, but I doubt it, they might be glad President Bush is doing what we want him to do, fight the war over THERE.....
I see that Sheila Jackson Lee was a co-sponsor. Now is'nt she always trying to get face time with President Bush at the State of the Union speeches. Let's see if she aggresive she is to get her mug with President Bush at the State of the Union.
Remeber she had to take a limo for a couple of blocks from her office to Congress.
It should be Queen Sheila!! What a piece of work.
Wait until the Republicans get their new leadership all lined up and they'll be jumping on board too.
No surprises here.
Demsheviks. I like that word.
I hope you won't mind if I steal it.
I, too, am very concerned about the "Republicans" in Congress. So much so that, each time I receive a request for money from the RNC, Frist, Lott, Mehlman etc, I return it with a note saying I will give no more money until the Republicans begin to stand up and support our President and our country. If I subscribed to Democrat policies, I would have voted for Democrats. I'm tired of the Rinos aligning themselves with Dims. The RINOs seem to be increasing in number and more blatant in their actions.
