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


Impeach!

Hold Bush, Cheney accountable

DAILY-JOURNAL – Despite the uncoming end of their terms it is crucial to the integrity and reputation of our great nation that we hold Bush and Cheney accountable for their crimes against the American people and humanity at large … we must practice what we preach to the world… Impeach Bush and Cheney.

It is never too late to do the right thing. We have some incredible messes to clean up from this administration … so we need to pull together as Americans and get busy “cleaning house.” The time is now.

This will not be easy. If we speak the truth, they will try to silence us. If we act, they will try to stop us. But we speak for the majority, here and around the world, and as we get this going we are going to reach out to the people who have been so badly fooled by Bush and we are NOT going to stop.

The point is this: history is full of examples where people who had right on their side fought against tremendous odds and were victorious. And it is also full of examples of people passively hoping to wait it out, only to get swallowed up by a horror beyond what they ever imagined. The future is unwritten. WHICH ONE WE GET IS UP TO US.

Wear Orange Every Friday – Support Impeachment

I’m wearing my orange, are you wearing yours?

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.

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.

  2. People to impeach (remove from office):
    Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Charles Schumer…Obama.

    These folks, along with some republicans also (to a lesser degree), should be held accountable for perpetuating falsehoods about the economic standing and vitality of Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac – these folks took lobbyist monies to protect these groups and insure their unfettered operations.

    These people put the economy into a downward spiral – will the MSM get back to real news and pursue such stories, holding them to account and putting their names out over the airwaves? Lord knows, the democrats won’t.
