Congratulations to CA-08

Posted by Charles II on June 9, 2008

CA-08 did its duty, fielding a primary opponent to Nancy Pelosi, the woman who took impeachment off the table and thereby guaranteed that George Bush would not get his just deserts.

With very little funding and no political experience, a significant protest vote was recorded for challenger Shirley Golub:

Shirley Golub 8,789 10.9 %
Nancy Pelosi 71,563 89.1 %

In the fall election, Pelosi faces Cindy Sheehan. Because there essentially no chance of a Republican being elected from that district, many Californians may be tempted to give Sheehan a chance. In any case, thousands of good people have already stood forth and told Pelosi that she is in the wrong.

Vote for impeachment

Posted by Charles II on December 14, 2007

Three members of the Judiciary Committee have called for hearings on the impeachment of Richard Cheney. Our “liberal media” refuses to publish their OpEd (see below). You can vote for impeachment at


By Representatives and Members of the Judiciary Committee:
Robert Wexler (D-FL), Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI)

On November 7, the House of Representatives voted to send a resolution of impeachment of Vice President Cheney to the Judiciary Committee. As Members of the House Judiciary Committee, we strongly believe these important hearings should begin.

The issues at hand are too serious to ignore, including credible allegations of abuse of power that if proven may well constitute high crimes and misdemeanors under our constitution. The charges against Vice President Cheney relate to his deceptive actions leading up to the Iraq war, the revelation of the identity of a covert agent for political retaliation, and the illegal wiretapping of American citizens.

Grounds for Impeachment

Why should George W. Bush be impeached?

Because if we are to have a government based on law and not rulers, we must not let crimes go unpunished.

And George W. Bush has committed crimes aplenty. Here’s a woefully incomplete list:

Interesting, That Agence France-Presse Carried This…

Posted by Phoenix Woman on July 7, 2007

…but not, apparently, AP:

 WASHINGTON (AFP) – Nearly half of the US public wants President George W. Bush to face impeachment, and even more favor that fate for Vice President Dick Cheney, according to a poll out Friday.

The survey by the American Research Group found that 45 percent support the US House of Representatives beginning impeachment proceedings against Bush, with 46 percent opposed, and a 54-40 split in favor when it comes to Cheney.

The study by the private New Hampshire-based ARG canvassed 1,100 Americans by telephone July 3-5 and had an error margin of plus or minus three percentage points. The findings are available on ARG’s Internet site.

And In Other Good News Today…

Chuck Hagel’s put impeaching Bush back on the table.

Granted, Hagel seems to be all guff and no stuff — he didn’t vote to stop Bush’s surge when it counted and always falls in line when the votes are counted (oh, and he’s connected ES&S) — but for a conservative Republican to be coming out and saying the “I” word is no small thing.
