Congressman Dennis Kucinich will this Friday present his single article of impeachment concerning the Bush administration’s deliberate and unconstitutional lies that led us to war in Iraq, putting him in tandem with the majority of the American people, yet in the cross hairs of both Neo-Cons and Democrats who have tried to block his efforts at every turn.
Kucinich should be commended for his brave and restless pursuit of impeachment. Whether Bush had a few months left in office or a few years doesn’t matter one iota - the Congressman’s efforts are aimed squarely at ensuring Bush rightly goes down in history as the most flagrantly criminal and anti-American president in history, while also making sure that a repeat of the debacle we have witnessed over the past eight years is not allowed to happen again.
In a preamble posted on You Tube, Kucinich explains the foundation of his single article of impeachment, the deliberate behind-closed doors scheming and lies that were told in anticipation of the pre-planned invasion of Iraq, while the charade of UN weapons inspectors and diplomacy played out in public.
Democrat elitists like Pelosi and Conyers are desperately trying to downplay Kucinich’s efforts and insist that impeachment is “off the table”.
When Kucinich spent four hours in June reading 35 articles of impeachment and demanding hearings, the Democrat controlled House almost instantly dispatched them for burial to the Judiciary Committee.
According to an Associated Press report, when Kucinich tried to introduce similar articles of impeachment against Dick Cheney last November, “Republicans, seeing a chance to force Democrats into an embarrassing debate, voted to bring up the resolution. Democrats countered by pushing through a motion to scuttle the bill from the floor.”
The bullshit they are trying to make us swallow is that Democrats are shunning Kucinich because they think a debate about impeachment would harm their chances of winning the presidency.
In reality, as far back as November 2005, polls showed that the majority of Americans supported impeachment on the basis of Bush lying about the invasion of Iraq, which is specifically what Kucinich’s single article of impeachment that he will present on Friday addresses.
Likewise, latest polls show that almost 70% of Americans oppose the war in Iraq, with anti-war sentiment swelling the longer the occupation drags on.
Support for a withdrawal from Iraq and the impeachment of George W. Bush is wildly popular with the majority of the electorate that will vote in November, so why are top Democrats doing everything in their power to prevent Kucinich from drawing attention to the matter?
Because they are nothing more than political whores for the same power structure served by the Neo-Cons, and want to advance the same agenda of pax-Americana, imperial bloodletting and domination demanded by the new world order and the Israeli AIPAC lobby, to which Pelosi and Conyers have pledged their full subservience.
