McKinney Files HR 1106, Seeks Impeachment

From Winter Patriot:

Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney of Georgia made the most of her last day in Congress, by introducing articles of impeachment against the so-called president, the so-called vice president, and the so-called secretary of state, formerly the so-called national security advisor.

The impeachment of the President and of officials within his administration for intelligence-doctoring, for obfuscation of truths unsupportive of their domination agenda—in short, for lying at the expense of many billions of dollars and, most importantly, of hundreds of thousands of lives—is crucial, among other things, to restoring faith not in the government but in the people of the United States among the people of other nations and cultures, and to restoring the faith of Americans in themselves as agents of the democratic process.

The Bush administration has been busy. Bolton’s out. Rumsfeld’s gone. The “independent” Iraq Study Group’s report is being “taken seriously.” Dance, dance, dance! 

That’s not the kind of change we need. It’s certainly not the kind of change the people of Iraq need.

Regardless of what sort of changes—or lack of them—impeachment might bring, as an exercise of justice and a call to accountability it is indispensable and it is my fervent hope that Americans will pressure their congresspeople to demonstrate to America and to the world that George W. Bush and his administration are not above the law. They are not allowed to invoke fear and panic to their advantage, as an obscurant to hidden agendas and as a justification for murder.

Thank you, Congresswoman McKinney.  Let’s see this thing through.

    I think only if America impeaches Bush out of office, will America have the moral authority to export its revered democracy to the rest of the world.

    Once again, it’s nice to visit your blog.

    When I call my representive to STOP the FCC from approving the telecommunications merger that does NOT guarantee Net Neutrality and to prevent this from being approved by the lame duck republican Congress…I’ll ask him to support McKinney’s impeachment proposal….At least he will have to hear what the majority of his constituents want. Buzz… Buzz…

    I have more respect for Cynthia McKinney than almost any other elected representative currently serving. It was a huge disappointment to see the Dems run like cowards from her when she was reelected.

    Kudos to this fine woman who history will one day honor with respect deserved.
