Trump Coward

Courage! What makes a king out of a slave? Courage! What makes the flag on the mast to wave? Courage! What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist, or the dusky dusk? What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage! What makes the sphinx the seventh wonder? Courage! What makes the dawn come up like thunder? Courage! What makes the Hottentot so hot? What puts the “ape” in apricot? What have they got that I ain’t got?  — Cowardly Lion, Wizard of Oz

Trump: Bush should have been impeached

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Property mogul and diehard Republican Donald Trump told CNN on Wednesday that President George W. Bush misled the US into the Iraq War and should have been impeached when the Democrats took control of Congress in 2006.

“I was surprised that she didn’t do more in terms of Bush and going after Bush,” Trump said in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, referring to Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“It … just seemed like she was going to really look to impeach Bush and get him out of office, which personally I think would have been a wonderful thing.

Trump Should Be Fired as a Citizen

OEN – What sort of a slow learner is Trump?  The war lies began in September 2001.  A major impeachment movement began despite lacking any serious source of funding in May 2005. Pelosi swore she would never impeach no matter what in May 2006.  Congress members like Dennis Kucinich and Robert Wexler tried to force the issue through 2007 and 2008.  And what did Trump do?  Did he provide us funding to hire organizers?  Did he fund independent media or polling companies that would report the news?  Did he show his face at a single antiwar event?  Did he breathe one word in public?

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 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

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.
