Tell Nancy Pelosi Impeachment Is Good for Democrats

Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi has instructed the Democratic Caucus and promised the corporate media that the Democrats will not impeach Bush and Cheney even if they win a majority in Congress. Of course, such timidity is the most likely way for the Democrats to not win a majority in Congress. While 90% of Democrats and 81% of Independents disapprove of Bush in the latest Harris poll, only 67% of Republicans approve of him. Every poll done on impeachment //www.afterdowningstreet.org/polling shows very strong support among Democrats and weak opposition among Republicans. Moreover, an off-year election is won by inspiring your "base" to turn out in higher numbers, and nothing inspires Democratic voters like impeachment.

Here's an article about Pelosi's position: //www.afterdowningstreet.org/pelosi

To Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi,
May 14, 2006

I just read an article in the San Francisco Chronicle in which they reported: “Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco has told her caucus that the idea of impeaching President Bush isn't in the cards if the party takes over the House in November's elections.” And “Pelosi also restated her opposition to the idea of censuring Bush over his decision to invade Iraq in March 2003.” To this I add, America is dying a slow painful death due to Bush, Cheney, et al and it is incumbent upon the very survival of this republic that all of these criminals be removed from power immediately. I am astonished that you would not lead in calling for their removal from office and with that said, we need new fearless Democrats leading our congressional caucus if we are to save this country. In my opinion, I can think of two men who have shown such leadership and they are Congressman John Conyers or Congressman John Murtha. Both of these patriotic congress members have exhibited the wear-with-all to stand up to these despots.

I would like to ask you, Rep. Pelosi, just what are you thinking when you make such statements? You are not showing leadership but collusion. When your spokesman Brendan Daly stated: “We want oversight and checks and balances,'' He is joking, right? Without fearless leadership going into these mid-term elections where our message is that Bush, Cheney, et al must be impeached to save this republic there will be no checks and balances and we will not retake the house. America is at a critical mass right now and it is incumbent upon our party to save her from blowing apart in a nuclear meltdown.

While your spokesman stated that it is not your interest, it is the interest of many Democrats like me that these criminals are taken out of power before they do more damage. Impeachment is the driving force behind many to make sure that we take back both the house and the senate.

There is an old saying: “If you are not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem” and by your alarming remarks, it proves that you are indeed part of the problem. By your sentiments expressed in that article, it is time that you step aside as minority leader since you are failing to lead this party, this country and where you would want leading this country a man that has committed many acts of treason. If you think I am the only one that feels this way, I can assure you that I am not.

In closing, I am faxing you pictures of soldiers whose faces have been blown off and pictures of dead and injured Iraqi children and you tell me if Bush and Cheney who are despots and dictators deserve to stay in power.

Mary MacElveen

This letter sent to you is being sent to other Democrats and will be posted on my RadioLeft.com blog.

Notes Indicate Cheney at Center of Plame Scandal

Vice President Dick Cheney made handwritten notations on a July 2003 newspaper column that indicate he was focused on a critic of the administration's Iraq policy, according to a court filing in the CIA leak case.

Cheating has a long and bipartisan history in US elections

Here is a view from across the pond..that cheating has a long and bipartisan history in US elections. In 2004, the potential for cheating was known before the election...Oct 04...and verified by Share International editor Benjamin Creme in Dec. 04..

//www.share-international.org/magazine/old_issues/2004/dec_04.htm#q&a

Q. (1) Does the final outcome in the US Presidential election accurately reflect the preference of those who voted, or
(2) was there any corruption or manipulation which might have changed the outcome? If so,
(3) which side cheated more?
(4) If the results were ‘fixed’, by which methods was it done?

A. (1) No. My information is that there was much cheating.
(2) Yes, Kerry should narrowly have won Ohio and Florida and the Presidency. I am afraid it is the same old story, more expertly performed this time.
(3) The Republicans. It seems that cheating by Democrats was minimal and only on a personal basis, but cheating by Republicans was pre-planned and widespread, especially with the new electronic machines.
(4) Pre-programmed electronic voting systems and various other methods, cruder but just as effective — delayed postal votes, double voting, non-counting of votes, and more. Of course, the marginal (swing) states like Florida and Ohio were targeted and the machines were programmed to change every fifth vote for Kerry to a vote for Bush. However, even without ‘stolen’ votes, Bush, like Gore last time, did in fact decisively win the popular vote which I personally prefer as a record of democratic public opinion.

Warning about Diebold software was published in Share International magazine in Oct. 2004.

The Great Coral Reef disaster

US admits for first time that global warming is killing reefs - and will now be legally obliged to protect them

By Geoffrey Lean,
Environment Editor
Published: 14 May 2006

Global warming is killing coral reefs, the Bush administration has formally admitted. And the admission means that, under US law, it will finally be obliged to take action to reduce the pollution that causes climate change.

The US National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) has this month ruled that two species of coral - elkhorn and staghorn - must officially be registered as threatened under the US Endangered Species Act, partly because they are imperilled by rising sea temperatures. They are the first species ever to be listed as a result of global warming.

The two corals are the main reef-building species in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Florida, but they have declined by 80 to 98 per cent throughout the region. The NMFS - part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - concluded that "elevation of the sea surface temperature" was partly to blame. The ruling accepts that the corals die when the sea temperature exceeds 29C, because a curious relationship between tiny algae and the coral breaks down.

Corals are really colonies of billions of tiny animals called polyps. They lay down limestone skeletons that build the reef. But the tiny reef-builders in turn depend on algae called zooxanthellae. Not only do they give coral its colour, they harness the power of the sun through photosynthesis to feed the polyps.

More than a million of the algae throng each square centimetre of coral. But when the sea temperature rises, the polyps expel them into their stomachs, and then spit them out through their mouths. The coral becomes transparent, and eventually dies. This white death - virtually unknown 25 years ago - is now happening increasingly around the world as global warming takes hold.

But under the Endangered Species Act, the US government is legally bound to take measures to diminish the threat, by cutting back the pollution that causes climate change. And environmental groups are preparing to take it to court if it continues to refuse to do so.
