Conyers Releases Massive New Report on Bush-Cheney Crimes

by reposted Saturday, Aug. 05, 2006 at 9:59 AM

By David Swanson

The minority staff of the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, under the leadership of Congressman John Conyers (D., Mich.) has produced over the past many months a staggering report, just released, which documents the hard evidence of crimes and abuses committed by President Bush and his administration (breaking 26 specific laws). This report, "The Constitution in Crisis," should provide the raw material for numerous news reports and point reporters toward fertile ground for additional investigations.

Please take a look:

1. Ask the media to cover Conyers' report:

2. Ask your Congress Member to sponsor H. Res. 635 to start an investigation.

3. Buy this report as a book. Pre-order, and ask your friends to do so, and get it on the best-seller lists. Buy it here.

At Long Last...

Can you name the one country on earth where the government can steal elections, strip away basic rights, spy on citizens, and launch wars based on lies, but where the people do not take over the nation's capital in protest?

If you said the United States, you'll be wrong on September fifth when Camp Democracy begins on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

http://www.campdemocracy.org

At long last, Americans are preparing to say "Enough is enough," and to do what Ukrainians, Mexicans, or any other people not drugged into acquiescence would do when things got this bad: occupy the capital city to demand peace, justice, and accountability.

Share a Ride to Camp Democracy, Share a Room When You Get Here!



Camp Democracy will be held on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., from September 5 to 21. This will be a camp for peace, democracy, and the restoration of the rule of law. Camp Casey will move from Crawford, Texas, to Washington to create a larger camp focused not only on ending the war but also on righting injustices here at home and on holding accountable the Bush Administration and Congress.

http://www.campdemocracy.org

Your travel to Camp Democracy is part of the camp and should be a community-building experience. Do you have two people in your car but four seats? Can you bring a van? A large bus? Or do you want to fly on a plane together with others bound for Camp Democracy? Sign up here to offer a ride or to ask for one: http://spaceshare.com/campdemocracy

Do you have or need a room in the Washington, D.C., area?

Sign up here to offer a room or request one:

http://spaceshare.com/campdemocracy

We Need Your Help!

Camp Democracy is a grassroots effort and will only succeed with the help of many, many people contributing the small amounts they can afford. This is our opportunity to do what the citizens of the Ukraine, of Mexico, and of other countries do when their democracies are taken from them. This is our chance to say "Enough is enough!" Can you help us?

Planning an Impeachment Blog Action

Starting at noon ET on September 1, 2006, and lasting 24 hours, websites and blogs all across the internet are being asked to replace their front pages with the single word "Impeach" in simple white text on a black background. Here's an example: http://impeachnet.net

Visitors to those sites and blogs will be able to click and link to the sites' usual front pages. But first they will see a word that, standing alone, is as powerful as any word right now: it is banned by our political and media leadership but more popular among citizens and activists than perhaps any other. It is both shocking and welcome. For 24 hours, web surfers and blog readers will see that word first when they visit their favorite sites. In this way, we hope to get the public talking about the one tool guaranteed by the Founders to restore our Constitutional Democracy. Please encourage your favorite websites to take part in this action. If you plan to take part, please let us know here:

FROM THE IMPEACHMENT FORUMS

"When Bush vetoed the embryonic stem-cell bill (the first veto of his presidency), he remarked that the implementation of this bill would have promoted the taking of innocent human life, something that "crosses a moral boundary that our decent society needs to respect." Regardless of the merits or pitfalls of the bill, I find it ironic (to understate) that this president invokes morality as the reason for his action--this president who has crossed so many moral boundaries himself . . . to devastating effect...."
