"The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him." George W. Bush, September 13, 2001. "I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority." George W. Bush, March 13, 2002
The move to impeach President George W. Bush has been around for years. A large number of Americans actually thought that by voting in Democrats and "taking back" Congress in 2006, not only would America withdraw from this heinous, unconstitutional war in Iraq (and Afghanistan), they could also expect the incompetent, Nancy Pelosi, to spear head the impeachment of Bush. Of course, these duped Americans were played, again. There was never any doubt in my mind that there would be no impeachment.
Many years ago, the foolish Republicans went after Marxist Bill Clinton for the wrong reason. Clinton sold our most sensitive defense secrets to the communist Chinese. Instead of Congress going after him for provable treason, gutless Republicans in the House went after Clinton over a sex charge. Of course, if one has read David Schippers book, Sellout: The Inside Story of President Clinton's Impeachment, they will fully understand the whole episode was rigged and there was never any serious intention of removing Clinton from office. The same applies to Bush. The Democrats want him to stay in office for political currency - in other words, American soldiers are expendable to get closet communist, Barack Hussein Obama, into the White House. Millions of Democrats have come to realize they were had, but continue to support the ring leaders of such treachery. A form of insanity.
I am not a fan of Michael Moore. I've never seen any of his movies, but I am going to quote from his site because this is the heart of the matter. The gut wrenching question tens of millions have asked. The heart breaking questions from mothers who ask, "Did my son die for nothing?":
October 22, 2004. WASHINGTON - October 11 - “How do you think it feels for a grieving mother to hear Charles Duelfer, the top CIA weapons inspector for Iraq, state last week that Iraq destroyed its weapons of mass destruction years ago and had no ability to produce more, under sanctions? How do you think it feels to hear White House officials now admit that Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11? I want to know: did Michael die for a lie?” asked Lila Lipscomb, the military mother from Flint, Michigan, who is featured in Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11” reading from the last letter her son, Michael, sent home from Iraq before he died. Heartbroken and angry, Mrs. Lipscomb has embarked on a Tour of Duty around America, imploring audiences to question why we invaded Iraq and why our troops are still there."
These are facts Americans continue to ignore:
1. It is not our duty or obligation to remove any dictator from any foreign country by invading and killing anyone in our way. The Monroe Doctrine, December 2, 1823
2. It is not our responsibility to invade a foreign country to promote the evil of democracy. The Monroe Doctrine, December 2, 1823
3 - It is not our responsibility to invade any foreign country to allegedly protect a neighboring country to settle squabbling, religious or tribal differences between them that have lasted decades or a thousand years. The Monroe Doctrine, December 2, 1823
4. The U.S. Constitution does not authorize the American people to be robbed using borrowed money to fund wars based on lies and what is known as nation building. Our military is for our defense, period. We have the right to defend if attacked.
5. Bush has acknowledged the fact that Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with September 11, 2001.
6. There were no weapons of mass destruction.
7. Iraq was NOT any kind of threat to these united States of America.
8. Bush and his co conspirators planned the invasion of Iraq long before September 11, 2001, because it is the agenda being pursued for world government and every country who doesn't fall lock step into line will be invaded and occupied until the desired results are achieved. That agenda includes making sure control of the world's oil supply is in the hands of the power brokers who own the U.S. Congress.
Paid mouth pieces and party hacks on the stupid tube shout that any American questioning Bush's motives during a time of war and and the invasions of two non threatening countries are somehow aiding and abetting the enemy. "Soft on terrorism." Classic propaganda. It is our duty to question the motives and policies of those allegedly elected to public office on any issue - especially war.
I have not participated in the efforts by dozens of groups and organizations out to impeach Bush because as I said above, I knew it would never happen. Should Americans remain silent when a president commits 'high crimes and misdemeanors'? Absolutely not. However, reality is reality and that's the bitter pill Americans have been tasting for years as the Democrats continue to go right along with Bush's insanity. Both parties continue to approve hundreds of billions of dollars that don't exist to fund his lunacy. Every single penny thrown away in the Middle East has to be borrowed because these crooks, cowards and criminals called Congress, have spent this country into a $9.5 TRILLION dollar debt. It makes no difference to them. They keep spending on these endless wars because the people allow it.
There are plans underway to prosecute George W. Bush for war crimes:
"The Massachusetts School of Law at Andover will convene a conference in September to lay plans to prosecute President Bush and other high administration officials for war crimes. "This is not intended to be a mere discussion of violations of law that have occurred," says MSL's dean Lawrence Velvel in a statement announcing the conference. "It is, rather, intended to be a planning conference at which plans will be laid and necessary organizational structures set up, to pursue the guilty as long as necessary and, if need be, to the ends of the Earth."
"The ends of the earth, in this case, may be Crawford, Texas, where President Bush is likely to be found after his term is up at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The Wild West locale could be the perfect place for such a trial, given the punishment Velvel proposes for anyone who is convicted. "We must insist on appropriate punishments," Velvel said, "including, if guilt is found, the hangings visited upon top German and Japanese war criminals in the 1940s." Sending administration officials to the gallows, he added, "would be a powerful lesson to future American leaders."
Such a process as proposed above will not be an easy one to sell. Can anything be done to hold Bush and his coconspirators accountable? I believe the answer is found in a new book titled, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, by Vincent Bugliosi. For those unfamiliar with that name, Bugliosi successfully prosecuted Charles Manson for the Tate/LaBianca murders; his bio is here. This man is no light weight in legal circles. And while I believe he's a Democrat and unnecessarily devotes time at the end of the book to vent in a partisan fashion, Bugliosi presents his case as a skilled prosecutor and goes after both parties for their failure to stop the madness of the infantile and quite mad, George W. Bush.
Bugliosi also whacks the corporate media for their role in never putting forth the hard questions and selling these grotesque wars. He has nothing good to say about the American people either when talking about the massive failures of Bush and his 'war on terrorism,' page 173: "But the majority of Americans, while most of this was happening, did not [question]. Why not? In large part it's because most people love to rest their minds, being much more fond of talking than thinking..."
The inside front and back covers of this book is a mosaic of soldiers from all 50 states killed in Iraq. The inside flap succinctly and accurately tells the reader what this book does: "...Bugliosi presents a tight, meticulously researched legal case that puts George. W. Bush on trial in an American court room for the murder of nearly 4,000 American soliders fighting the war in Iraq. Bugliosi sets forth the legal architecture and incontrovertible evidence that President Bush took this nation to war in Iraq under false pretenses -- a war that has not only caused the deaths of American soldiers, but also over 100,000 innocent Iraqi men, women and children...."
I read this book in a few days because it was so compelling, I couldn't put it down. Not only does Bugliosi present an air tight case against Bush, there can be no question that Dick Cheney and Condelezza Rice should also be tried as coconspirators. There is nothing in this book about September 11, 2001 other than mention of the 9/11 Omission Commission. It focuses squarely on Bush and his lies, backed up by Cheney and Rice. This is the right way to approach this legal issue.
Bush cannot be indicted and prosecuted until the day after he leaves office. Can Bush be indicted and in what jurisdiction? Bugliosi explains this in detail on page 308: "..any state attorney general in the fifty states could bring a murder charge against Bush for any soldiers in that state who lost their lives fighting Bush's war.
"Bush could be expected to make one more legal challenge to the jurisdiction of any state court to prosecute him for murder, including citing the language of Article III, §2, cl. 3 of the U. S. Constitution (and 18 U.S.C. §3238)..." He goes on to explain how Bush's conspiracy to commit murder is proper in the jurisdiction he lays out in this book using U.S. Supreme Court cases.
For those who want to blow this off as the work of a 'Bush hater' and other popular propaganda, you are in denial about the intentions of Bush and his coconspirators. These are evil people who must be held accountable. Patrick Henry's 'Give me liberty' speech was magnificent in so many ways. He and others were willing to put it all on the line for this country. For our country. For honor, integrity and birthing a nation of free individuals who were willing to fight to give all of us freedom - not to fight wars based on lies.
Bush and his coconspirators must be indicted and prosecuted. For those who died on September 11, 2001. For our soldiers who have died for their lies. For their families who will grieve every day until they take their last breath. We the people are bleeding for those families. We do care. We are not unpatriotic, but we will not condone what Bush and his coconspirators have done to this nation.
Bush and his coconspirators must be indicted and prosecuted. For the hopes of dreams of our young people, gone and blowing into the dust bin of a distorted history.
For the children of our soldiers who will never know their mom or dad past the last time they saw them as they were being shipped to hell to fight an unnecessary war. America's plate is heaped with corruption and danger. But, we must not, we cannot ignore the crimes of Bush, Cheney and Rice, because it's the easiest path or because "they're out of office now." No. This must be pursued as a screaming warning to future presidents that they cannot and will not be allowed to destroy this country by sending our soldiers into useless wars based on lies, causing so much grief and agony. Vincent Bugliosi has given the American people and the legal system the blueprint for prosecution. The question remains is there one single Attorney General in the 50 states of the Union who has the guts and courage to take on a criminal like George W. Bush?
You won't read about this in any mainstream newspaper, which is why we need real newspapers. The push to replace our controlled media is now underway, but in the meantime, it is up to you and me to get this information out to America and demand the Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder as well as his coconspirators, Dick Cheney and Condelezza Rice.
