Tell Congress: The Wiretap General MUST Be Opposed For CIA Director


How outrageous is it that the NSA head who implemented the wiretap crimes of the Bush administration should now be considered for head of the CIA? All the members of the Impeach Team are strongly opposed to this nomination. While they are calling for impeachment, they are at the same time also opposing putting accessories to the high crimes of the president and vice-president in positions of high public trust and responsibility.

It not just that they've been secretly monitoring without warrant virtually every domestic phone call in the US. Now we find they've been expressly targeting journalists for spying. Pretty slick system, isn't it? They make all evidence of their malfeasance classified information, and then they threaten to prosecute anyone who would dare expose them in the media.

As to General Hayden in particular, when challenged on the wiretap scandal recently he proclaimed, "Believe me, if there is any amendment to the Constitution that employees of the National Security Agency are familiar with, it's the 4th," after having just denied that there was any reference to the expression "probable cause" in there to regulate unreasonable searches and seizures. Unfortunately for him the text of the 4th amendment to the Constitution is in the public record.


Even Republican leaders have admitted this spying program is "clearly and categorically wrong." What they have NOT done is challenge the administration in any way on their abuses of power. But that is what we must do, to continue to speak out, to stop the Hayden nomination, and to correct the underlying problem itself, the abuse of our democracy by calling for impeachment now.

Some fear that taking a strong stand for impeachment will hurt our chances in November. The opposite is in fact true. Your fellow constituents, and this crosses party lines, are just as appalled as you are with our current members of Congress and their continued failure to stand up for us. Strong candidates who are NOT afraid to speak the truth, and NOT afraid to stand up now help our chances in November. By supporting these candidates, we can inspire the turnout we need to overcome the expected pre-meditated election fraud.

Some fear that challenging the president will mobilize his base against us. What base? Less than 30% still cling to the vain belief that Bush and Cheney are either competent or truthful. Instead, we will rally our own base in a way that is not otherwise possible, and it will be the other side who sits out the election in disgust with the neocon nightmare we have for an Administration.

Some fear that any replacement for either Bush or Cheney might be equally as bad. All we know is wherever the people's impeachment movement takes us we must go there. Only if the voice of the people is strong can we stop the slide into the unitary dictatorship being exercised now. At the very least we will be able to chasten their successors.

What we are asking is that everyone who reads this should contribute at least ten dollars to help these brave candidates run their "call to action" ads. They want to run ads on Air America, not just in Los Angeles, but nationally to build the people's impeachment movement. They want to run ads in the L.A. Times so that the impeachment movement has real visibility. If each and every one of you can just contribute what you can now, this could be a real tipping point.


If you can contribute more, what a blessing that would be. There are many for whom $25, $50 or $100 is something they could comfortably do. Imagine what it would be like if you were so fortunate as to be able to contribute the campaign limit of $2100 to one of these worthy candidates. That's enough to buy an entire WEEK's worth of Air American streaming ads, calling on progressives everywhere to join the impeachment movement now.

We have spent two years complaining about the incumbents we have now, watching as they have failed us again and again. Now we have the chance to actually DO something about it. What we are asking is that even if you respond to no other appeal this year, THIS is the one that counts. THIS is the one that could mean the difference between being stuck with the same smug losers for what could be the last gasp of our great democracy, or replacing them NOW with candidates with the courage to take a stand for us.

This is your chance America. This is your chance to be rid of Bush and his gang of cronies forever. They remain in power only because they have conned you out of your own democracy. They remain in power only because we have not yet all spoken out at one time, all at the same time, to finally throw them out.

Look at what they have done to our country. Look at what it costs you every day extra just in the increase in gas prices caused entirely by their reckless destabilization of the Middle East, which they are determined to turn into an even wider conflagration. Look at all the money they have stolen from your own pocket to give lavish gifts to their most wealthy corporate cronies, in unlimited interest rates, propped up prescription drug prices, and paid for by the gutting of programs for the most needy.


Then, please think what it would be worth to you to remove our tormentors from office right now. And whatever that number is, make that donation today to build the impeachment movement which will make it happen.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.
