Kucinich Moves to Impeach Bush

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) has introduced 35 articles of impeachment George W. Bush. At the top of a list of "impeachable offenses" is "Article I: Creating a secret propaganda campaign to manufacture a false case for war against Iraq."

Representative Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, just finished reading on the House floor a 35-count impeachment resolution against President George W. Bush. Kucinich's lengthy and detailed indictment of this wayward president is the most thorough and powerful case made to date. He outlined a litany of high crimes and misdemeanors and showed without a shadow of a doubt that George W. Bush deserves to be impeached and removed from office. Kucinich made clear that Bush has violated his oath of office and his Constitutional duty that the laws be "faithfully executed."

--Dennis Kucinich Makes History Again - Impeach Bush!
Kucinich and others, including Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Fla.), charge that Bush and Cheney have lied to the Congress and the American people about the reasons for invading Iraq. It's a fact. They didn't just lie, they pulled off a criminal fraud upon the Congress and the American people. It was an elaborate conspiracy supervised by the White House. Bush presided over plagiarism, the fabrication of evidence against Saddam Hussein, and an elaborate pack of lies that were told to the UN. Bush was, in fact, the "deceiver of nations". This impeachable offense enabled the commission of war crimes punishable by death under US Codes, Title 18, Section 2441.

That Bush has tried repeatedly to make his actions legal (but only after he had already committed the crime) is evidence in itself that should be brought against him when he is impeached and, later, when he is tried for capital crimes. I would add that the entire 'war on terrorism' is, likewise, a criminal fraud for which Bush, Cheney and most high ranking members of his administration are culpable. It's round up time.

Back in 2007, the subject of the impeachment of George W. Bush came up when the Houston City Council was urged to adopt a resolution support his impeachment.

And of course we know that politicians NEVER, EVER go anywhere just because cameras are present.

No clapping, no hissing, no booing!! What a joke! I have sat through more Houston City Council sessions than I care to count. It seems that it is only when the impeachment of George W. Bush comes up that decorum becomes an objective. I remember a session in which clowns (not the clowns on council) were running amok --whooping like Curly Joe --throwing bags of peanuts to the people in the audience. At least Nero provided 'bread' and 'circuses'. In Houston, the city council is the circus and they residents get a lousy bag of stale peanuts.

Sadly, Houston is economically dependent upon the oil industry, the world and national headquarters for these lying, ruthless robber barons. The oil industry long ago partnered with terrorists and puppet states (like Saddam) to loot the resources of the Middle East.

If I may paraphrase an astronaut: "Houston, you ARE a problem!"

A short message to those living in Houston who have sold their souls for high paying, executive positions with oil companies: when you're done kissing George Bush's ass, get up off your knees and get a real job.

The following update from Crooks and Liars: BREAKING: Judiciary Committee Officially Requests McClellan Testimony- UPDATED
Judiciary Committee Officially Requests Scott McClellan Testimony for Friday, June 20
Wexler Plans Tough Questions About Possible Obstruction of Justice By Cheney, Rove, and Libby

(Washington, DC) Today Congressman Robert Wexler (D-FL) applauded the decision by Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers to invite former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan to testify under oath about the shocking revelations and possible illegal actions by members of the Bush Administration that he detailed in his book What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception.

Immediately following the book’s release, Congressman Wexler called for Congress to investigate the charges made by McClellan regarding the Bush Administration’s campaign to go to war with Iraq and efforts by Karl Rove and Scooter Libby to possibly obstruct justice during the Valerie Plame matter.

The earth-shattering admissions made by Scott McClellan in his new book warrant a sober and thorough hearing in the House Judiciary Committee and he should immediately accept the Committee’s request for his testimony,” said Congressman Wexler. “The allegations made by McClellan that Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, and possibly even Vice President Dick Cheney, together conspired to obstruct justice by lying about their role in the Plame case relates directly to the core of US executive power and the Constitution. If true, the allegations made by McClellan could amount to an obstruction of justice charge for Scooter Libby and Karl Rove.

“Scott McClellan must appear before Congress and tell the American people, under oath, how the Bush Administration not only obstructed justice during the Valerie Plame investigation but orchestrated a massive propaganda campaign to sell an unnecessary war in Iraq to the American people.

“Any efforts by the White House to claim executive privilege and thereby prevent McClellan from testifying would be ludicrous due to the fact that McClellan has already spoken at length about many of these matters both in his book and on numerous television interviews.”
