Rep. Kucinich has introduced a resolution for the impeachment
of Vice President Richard B. Cheney
may know already, but just in case you missed it, as I did, Mr. Dennis
Kucinich has introduced House Resolution 333, which calls for the
impeachment and removal from office of Mr. Cheney, the US vice
president. The resolution was introduced in April.
Mr. Cheney, according to the
resolution, misled Congress in various ways as the Iraq war approached.
He has also made belligerent statements against Iran, which are
against US law in terms of the treaties it has signed as part
of membership in the United Nations.
Information on the resolution
may be found on Kucinich's congressional web site, http://kucinich.house.gov/News/DocumentSingle.aspx?DocumentID=63379, although I have not yet been able
to find a list of co-sponsors, if any exist. I support this resolution,
and will write Nancy Pelosi and other congressional officials
recommending support. How about you?
By the way, the Associated Press, the government news agency that poses
as an independent news gathering organization, has reported that, in a
poll by the American Research Group, 45 percent favored impeachment of
Bush, while 46 percent opposed it. For Mr. Cheney, 54 supported
impeachment while 40 percent opposed it. I guess there are just some
things AP can't supress without blowing its cover.
I recommend Rosie O'Donnell's site. http://www.rosie.com/ She has a great list of stuff that
is all very interesting. Right now there is a campaign in the media to
blacklist her because she is against the war and supports further
investigations into 9-11. O'Reilly of Fox's "O'Reilly Factor" is the
leader of this movement. You probably know that she resigned from her
show, and may soon get a slot on another network. I was not
particularly interested in Rosie in the past, although one day a year
or two ago I was doing research downtown NYC, and happened to run into
her coming down the steps of the courthouse. She made a speech, had a
good presence and was articulate. I took a few pictures, which I don't
have access to right now, as they are in deep storage (a crashed hard
drive and CD's in physical storage far from where I am now).
It was only upon seeing
O'Reilly land into her that I realized what a courageous stand she had
taken on both the Iraq War and 9-11.
