Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

Let's Put the Brakes on the Bush dictatorship!

Dear Friend,

I have great news. Thanks to your help, we are making progress on holding President Bush accountable and advancing an impeachment inquiry.

The Washington Post just ran a front-page story about impeaching President Bush, quoting two attorneys from the Center for Constitutional Rights. Click here to read this important story.

That’s not all. This Sunday, C-SPAN 2 is broadcasting a panel discussion on the CCR impeachment book that we recently convened. You can see me and several other CCR attorneys outlining the case for impeachment this Sunday, April 2 at 4pm (Eastern Time) on the BookTV segment of CSPAN 2.

Please consider taking a moment to spread the word about this important movement to hold the President accountable and protect our democracy. Forward this email so others can see the Washington Post story and consider watching our event on Sunday at 4pm.

Of course, today the Senate Judiciary Committee is also considering a resolution to censure President Bush for illegal domestic spying. This is a start, but a censure resolution will not: Remove a single wiretap from Americans' phones; end the Iraq War; halt U.S. government torture or stop the President’s other violations of the constitutional principle of the separation of powers. Impeachment will ensure thorough investigation, real accountability and the restoration of our Constitution. Please take a moment now to forward this email to spread the word. You can also
click here to make sure your representative supports the resolution to investigate impeachment.

Thank you for taking the time to act today , and I hope you will watch our impeachment event this Sunday at 4pm (EST) on C-SPAN 2.

Near Paul Revere Country, Anti-Bush Cries Get Louder

Washington Post
HOLYOKE, Mass. -- To drive through the mill towns and curling country roads here is to journey into New England's impeachment belt. Three of this state's 10 House members have called for the investigation and possible impeachment of President Bush.

Thirty miles north, residents in four Vermont villages voted earlier this month at annual town meetings to buy more rock salt, approve school budgets, and impeach the president for lying about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction and for sanctioning torture.

Window cleaner Ira Clemons put down his squeegee in the lobby of a city mall and stroked his goatee as he considered the question: Would you support your congressman's call to impeach Bush? His smile grew until it looked like a three-quarters moon.

"Why not? The man's been lying from Jump Street on the war in Iraq," Clemons said. "Bush says there were weapons of mass destruction, but there wasn't. Says we had enough soldiers, but we didn't. Says it's not a civil war -- but it is." He added: "I was really upset about 9/11 -- so don't lie to me."

It would be a considerable overstatement to say the fledgling impeachment movement threatens to topple a presidency -- there are just 33 House co-sponsors of a motion by Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) to investigate and perhaps impeach Bush, and a large majority of elected Democrats think it is a bad idea. But talk bubbles up in many corners of the nation, and on the Internet, where several Web sites have led the charge, giving liberals an outlet for anger that has been years in the making.

"The value of a powerful idea, like impeachment of the president for criminal acts, is that it has a long shelf life and opens a debate," said Bill Goodman of the Center for Constitutional Rights, which represents Guantanamo Bay detainees...
