Kucinich Pushes on Impeachment

By Jason Leopold

Congress has plenty of evidence that George W. Bush deserves impeachment for misleading the nation into war in Iraq, authorizing torture and other grave crimes, and violating the Constitution – and it is now time to act, says Rep. Dennis Kucinich.

“How many more hearings do we need to have to prove this administration has violated the Constitution, taken the law into its own hands, and condoned torture?” asked Kucinich, D-Ohio, author of some three dozen articles of impeachment.

“These articles of impeachment are about accountability,” Kucinich said in an interview. “I think our country is at risk. We’re setting a terrible precedent for future administrations if we choose to turn a blind eye to the crimes committed by this administration.

“We need to send a message to the next President that if he conducts himself in a similar capacity it would be met with a response from the Congress that you are going to be held to account. … There is a point at which you reduce Congress to a debating society.”

June 19, 2008 Impeach Bush now? By Ray McGovern

Sadly, I'm pretty much convinced that "the people" will not wake up until another 9/11 happens or an attack on Iran commences . . . How much more evidence do "the people" and Congress need?

I feel a calm before the storm right now, but on a positive note, maybe that storm will allow 9/11 truth to finally be exposed . . . --Betsy

Impeach Bush now?

By Ray McGovern

United States Rep. John Conyers, the Detroit Democrat who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, has a rendezvous with destiny. He is uniquely placed to thrust a rod through the wheels of a White House juggernaut to war with Iran by commencing impeachment proceedings against President George W. Bush.

A move to impeach would bolster the resistance to Bush among our senior military leaders who know that attacking Iran at this time would be the strategic equivalent of the marches into Russia by Napoleon and Hitler.

Pentagon ‘three-day blitz’ plan for Iran

(Normally, I wouldn't put something this far off topic (9/11) on the front page. But with so much hardware stacked up around Iran, what exactly is stopping this administration from using it? Will the pretext be False Flag, or realizing the "surge" of skepticism sure to follow what Peter Dale Scott would call a "meta-event", will Bushco merely declare the Iranian Revolutionary Guards a "terrorist" organization, and flatten Iran's infrastructure? Perhaps the declaration would follow the strike. Some of the features of a "meta-event": a) the immediate identification of the perps. b) support from the corporate press in stamping the guilt of the original perps into the public consciousness, no matter what kind of contrary evidence comes up later (in the case of 9/11, unprecedented support). c) the involvement of "Double Agents" or what Peter Lance coyly calls "Triple Agents", like Ali Mohamed, who was sheep-dipped into "al Qaeda", trained at Fort Bragg, and was an asset of the CIA, FBI and the US Army. The principal author of the fabled "al Qaeda" training manual is American citizen, Ali Mohamed, currently living off your tax dollars in "some kind of custodial witness protection". The American Intelligence asset tied to the 1993 WTC bombing, the murder of Meir Kahane, the US Embassy bombings, and who knew more about the 9/11 plot than the patsy Moussaoui.

JFK, Martin Luther King, Pearl Harbor, the Gulf of Tonkin, none of these "meta-events" had a Truth movement like the 9/11 skeptics. Just think about that for a minute. -rep.)

I have a friend who is an LSO on a carrier attack group that is planning and staging a strike group deployment into the Gulf of Hormuz. (LSO: Landing Signal Officer- she directs carrier aircraft while landing) She told me we are going to attack Iran. She said that all the Air Operation Planning and Asset Tasking are finished. That means that all the targets have been chosen, prioritized, and tasked to specific aircraft, bases, carriers, missile cruisers and so forth.

I asked her why she is telling me this.

Her answer was really amazing.

Maccabee's diary :: ::

She started in the Marines and after 8 years her term was up. She had served on a smaller Marine carrier, and found out through a friend knew there was an opening for a junior grade LSO in a training position on a super carrier. She used the reference and the information and applied for a transfer to the United States Navy. Since she had experience landing F-18Cs and Cobra Gunships, and an unblemished combat record, she was ratcheted into the job, successfully changing from the Marines to the Navy. Her role is still aligned with the Marines since she generally is assigned to liaison with the Marine units deploying off her carrier group.
