IMPEACHMENT OF CHENEY/BUSH HAS BEEN TAKEN "OFF THE TABLE" BY ONE PERSON MTK BEGS HER TO RECONSIDER
U.S. Representative Nancy Pelosi:
Let me begin by saying I've voted for you – and will likely again. And that you may now be the only person we on the progressive left can approach, because of your position as Speaker of the House: you could re-structure the dialogue in this nation, and some would say you alone could single-handedly save it in a totally unique and U.S. American way.
We beseech you to ignore Republicans, Democrats and so-called Progressives who have conceded Congressional investigation of Bush/Cheney and impeachment or censure in toto. Impeachment, Censure and Congressional Investigation are designed to allow us as citizens to monitor our leadership. They are important tools of state that must be exercised actively to keep balance. We feel you know this, but are being roped into a position of pseudo-neutrality by National and Federal pressures in your role as Speaker, and so, as constituents, here in the Bay Area, we urge you to reconsider, to take a new approach and to save this country from despotism.
Representative Pelosi, you will be greeted by a flood of support from the grassroots if you take this on. You could revolutionize the argument. You could be the one in Washington who says, "This has nothing to do with the upcoming primaries or the Election of 2008 – this has to do with what this country wants revealed by this Administration now, before another can take over, before they are out of the reach of public accountability." You can do this.
I say with pride Ms. Pelosi, that you are safe here at home. We love you and will re-elect you no matter what intense pressure you face for taking this position publicly, for saying, "I have looked at this. I have weeded out the unsound arguments and what's left is a lot of unethical, wrong-minded and potentially criminal activity that we need accounting for." As our Representative and the most powerful progressive Democrat in the country, won't you sharpen your brow and go after these men for what they have been doing? They behave like crude, good-old boys with no respect for anyone outside their club. That is not the spirit of this country.
Make History: We ask you to have a public change of heart and to step up to being the ethical and cultural conscience of our nation at this tense moment in history when this very unpopular administration has us poised to begin world war against Russia and Iran on bogus intelligence and false claims against another of West Asia's ancient centers of culture. The Cheney/Bush agenda for tactical nuclear strikes on Iran is aggressive, frightening and - exactly like the agenda against Iraq was - illegal, unconstitutional and against our country's fundamental values. Yes, Ms. Pelosi, I am accusing them of lying and deceit in the engagement of their war in Iraq – the Persian Gulf War Two. I accuse them of great, staged manipulations in their idiotic War on Terror. Many at home and abroad fear greatly that they are engaged secretly in practices to do it over again, thus: If we do not impeach Cheney and Bush then they will bomb Iran … with or without our sanction.
The only way to regain control of the U.S. American government from this kind of despotism is to actively promote transparent investigation of every single corner that Bush/Cheney has labeled "National Security," to do the same with this War on Terror. Demand the Administration open these to Members, in private or a special committee if not publicly. Look into the requests of Constitutional scholars and others who see criminality in their behavior. Yes, definitely Investigate and Impeach Cheney; and be proud of taking this Bush government up loudly and on the record, because future generations will vindicate you. The lies, conflicts of interest and criminal acts are provable, apparent. Bush, Cheney and the Neoconservatives: Rumsfeld, Ashcroft, Perle, Wolfowitz et. al., must be questioned at least and perhaps tried in order for the people to regain control of our federal government and what has already been lost.
They have lied to the United Nations and our own people, and are universally being condemned for this. Our only hope is to show the rest of the world that our system here in the United States does have in place the means to check itself, when it is so obviously occupied by despots. That is what Impeachment and Censure are for. The world waits for us to take these people to task.
As a woman and a progressive Democrat, you have won re-election easily. People here support you for your ideas and values. You are in a safe state among people who share your beliefs. We need you to step up and take the risks that others who are not as safe cannot take. Represent us, the conscience of this Nation in such a time.
I was a witness to the events in New York on September 11th of 2001, and have spoken with many people in this country since then and can categorically state that the vast majority of U.S. Americans believe strongly that Bush, Cheney and their neoconservative compatriots have seized far too much power in the name of the horrific attacks made upon our country and that they have executed ill-laid plans using lies, deceit and corporate protection of their own friends. They are plainly guilty of conflicts of interests, and may be – shockingly – guilty of conducting secret unconstitutional acts that have not been revealed or even properly investigated.
Congress must open up the Bush/Cheney administration before it leaves office. It is imperative to the future of our country that we force them to testify and tell us what has been going on in our name in their so-called war on terror. The successes they trumpet turn out to be staged and often involve terrified innocents. Their failures in Iraq and Afghanistan are riddled with criminal activities in prisons, in the field of battle and in the streets. There are hospitals and villages where our soldiers are feared and despised.
Please, Representative Pelosi, look deep into the future of this country, summon the courage and do what you do so well. Stand with your colleagues in the House who cry for Congressional Investigation of Cheney/Bush - that includes Impeachment and Censure, if necessary. It is an absolute imperative before the U.S.A. can pass one more law or engage in one more battle.
No, Ms. Pelosi, Impeachment, Censure and Congressional Investigation of Bush/Cheney have nothing to do with the Election of 2008. They have everything to do with the soul of our nation.
P.S. I discovered today that your party is again under fire as a failed opposition party, this time by the New York academic Mark Crispin Miller in his new book. I strongly feel the numbers will favor you nationally if you take a strong impeachment tack.
