Welcome to ImpeachmentWatch™, your daily diary that tracks Impeachment,
whether the Mainstream Media covers it or not.


Vote Sheehan! Let’s take Nancy off the table.

Cindy Sheehan to start new political party

The party will be called The First Party. Sheehan explained:

“We don’t want to do third-party politics which has a stigma in the United States” The First Party, with a populist-progressive agenda, will be the first party that “cares about the people, will work for the people, and will actually be a viable party.”

“I have spoken to Green Party Presidential Candidate Cynthia McKinney and the Nader Campaign” and as disillusionment with the two party system increases,”this is the time to build on that energy.”

SF Guardian Endorses Cindy Sheehan for Congress

The antiwar leader and Gold Star mom who put George Bush on the defensive is at best a long shot going to unseat the Speaker of the House. Cindy Sheehan has only recently moved to the district, has no local political experience, and is taking on one of the most powerful politicians in the United States.

But we can’t endorse Nancy Pelosi, who has consistently supported funding the war (and has refused to meet with antiwar protesters camped out in front of her house). Pelosi pushed the Wall Street bailout and privatized the Presidio.

Sheehan wants a fast withdrawal from Iraq, opposes any bailout for the big financial institutions, and is a voice against business as usual in Congress. This is a protest vote, but a valid one.

Cindy Sheehan is running as an Independent against Nancy Pelosi in a very liberal district.  
The Speaker of the House can be defeated.  It has happened before.
Let’s take Nancy off the table.

I wanted to embed the music video, that contains footage of the RATM Concert that Shutdown Wall Street, but Sony/BMG seems to be against embedding.

ADS: If the People Want Impeachment, Why Can’t it Happen?

I believe we should let George Bush get away with breaking the law because the attempt to hold him accountable wouldn’t be as useful as waiting for Barack Obama to maybe become President so he could maybe investigate Bush then.

As I see it now, we have but two options. The first and frankly most preferable option is for Congress to immediately begin impeachment proceedings.  The other option, is a total revolution. Put your party politics aside right now. We are in a crisis so dangerous that should these people succeed in their coup, your party affiliation will no longer matter, your American flag will be a nice collectible item of something that once was.

Here’s how the propaganda model works: Kucinich’s attempt to impeach the President elicited a mere 132 words in every major media outlet including the New York Times, Washington Post, and CNN.com.

The blogs are alive with the sound of Impeachment. The notices are rolling into my computer faster than I can open them, sign them and send them out to friends or family. That’s called activism, pushing back against this destructive force called Bush.

A future without impeachment paints a frighteningly bleak picture, a picture that at this point many of us can see but too few of us are acting to prevent. If ever there was a time to act, now is that time. It’s time, right now, to promote the necessity of impeachment as widely as possible. It is imperative that the Bush regime be driven from office and held accountable for its many crimes – it’s time to act now.

At this point the future in unwritten; which one we get is up to us.
