Moonbat Impeachment Video Theater

Have you noticed that with all the calls for impeachment of Bush and Cheney, you never hear any specific legal charges? Well, I have finally found a VIDEO that supposedly lists grounds for an impeachment and I am still scratching my head. Accompanied by what sounds like kumbaya type music at the beginning of the video, a long drawn out impeachment resolution introduced by New Hampshire state representative Betty Hall flashes on the screen. Of course, it is completely lacking in any clarity but somehow seems to say that Bush and Cheney are guilty of opposing the counting of votes in secret. Or at least I think that is what it says although I thought elections were counted locally, not nationally. Therefore I am asking anybody out there to interpret into plain English exactly what that resolution is supposed to say.

Hall's resolution sounds like it must have been written by someone I used to now who worked in my office named Merle, whom we called Merle the Pearl. Merle was completely unable to say a simple plain English sentence. Once, just as a test, I asked Merle the easiest way to reach a building just across the street. Well, Merle went on and on with a complex series of lengthy directions that would need an interpreter to understand. This just to describe how to walk across the street. That is how this dopey impeachment resolution comes off.

Following the impeachment resolution accompanied by the kumbaya style music is an interview with Betty Hall. Even she won't discuss her own resolution. Instead we are treated to a feel good Drama Queen theater presentation about how people under Hitler refused to speak up so that means it is real important that we now support her impeachment resolution. Of course, lost in the shuffle are the LEGAL GROUNDS for impeachment. Perhaps even Betty Hall can't figure out what her own impeachment resolution is supposed to say. I sure as hell can't figure it out.

This video must be watched several times to truely appreciate the unintentional humor in it. On my first viewing, I merely scratched my head. The second time, as I was agonizingly trying to interpret the uninterpretable resolution, I started to appreciate the feel good kumbaya type music in contrast to the dry legalese that made no sense on the screen. The third time I got a kick out of the over the top Drama Queen antics of comparing Nazi Germany to the EVIL Bush regime (while not even bothering to discuss the impeachment resolution).

This video is like drinking coffee for the first time. Perhaps not to your liking at first but upon further viewings it will become an acquired taste as you savor the unintentional humor offered up by the Leftwing Moonbats. Oh, and if anybody can make the least bit of sense out of that dopey impeachment resolution, please let me know.

Sorry PJ I could only watch about half of this..That singing reminded me of the smelly hippies that used to camp in the fields near my house whenever "The Dead" came to town. They would just sit in the field and smoke dope, play guitars, bongos, sing, and eat cheese sandwhiches. What a waste...of good dope.

This seemed to accuse Shrub of violating peoples right to vote..but as all the other moonbat charges this one had no specifics that I could glean. I don't know if she meant this happened in 2000, 2004, last season on Idol, or what. This whacky old lady is a state rep?? LOL!!! They use all the empty left wing rhetorical buzzwords, but come up pretty empty on any actual charges. They are making progress however. They did actually put their ramblings down in a legalese style of writing mixed with non related excerpts from the DOI and the Constitution. Almost had me screaming Impeach Chimpy!! But the smelly hippies signing in the background kept it in moonbat perspective.

Watch this get killed, and I do mean KILLED before it goes another foot. It is a load of rubbish, cobbled up by a complete imbecile.

Here's the gist of the "text" (and I'm being kind by describing it so).

“The right to vote, being the right that protects all other rights (whaaa?), is a right that is collectively inalienable,..."

(You'll have to show me the “right to vote” business, and what the hell is ‘collective inalienability’?)

(Go on, it gets better.)

“WHEREAS under Para 2 of the Declaration of Independence, our government is “instituted to secure these rights”, including the right of elections which are…”.

(Now it's ‘right of elections'. Was that before Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness, or after?),

“…the Executive branch is responsible for enforcing the law (No, it isn’t), and guaranteeing these rights (nope), including the right of elections (this again?)…”

(There’s an odd(er) bit right here)

“...instead of ensuring that the people of New Hampsire have guaranteed to them mechanisms for reliably altering or abolishing their representatives pursuant to Para 2 - (Chimpus Khan and Darth Cheney) have engaged in..."

(Dun-dun-duuuun!-drrrramatic reverbbbb)


(The Horror! Is this or anything like this a high crime or misdemeanor? It doesn't sound like it.)

("So Anon" I hear you ask, "Just what, does this Eeeevil Rovian litigation seek to do"?)

(Why nothing less than:)

“...require votes to be counted in trade secrecy (whatever that is), and outside the observation and control of citizens…!”

(And the nasty result is?)

“… invisibility and secret vote counting means that citizens no longer control their elections, and..."

(Get this gem!)

"that members of the Executive branch and the Election Assistance Commission do control elections (um, no)..."

(Wait! It gets better!)

"together with any criminal (Ah! Of course!) who may seek to alter the trade secret software; and,...”.


(Bush and Cheney) “…have committed high crimes and misdemeanors,"

(Presumably somewhere in the foregoing rubbish),

"...as they have repeatedly and intentionally violated the U.S. Constitution and other laws (which we will not bother to name)..."

(I guess we’ll get to that in the sequel.)

"...constitutes ample grounds for their impeachment…”

(Aaaaaaand cut... Cue the nets. Game ovah!

Actually, I think it constitutes ample ground for Betty to have a couple of good, hot, soapy HIGH colonics, up the lithium dose and take a few years off in the country... preferably another country.

She's a loon, and this is crap.

Low grade crap.

Low grade, even for New Hampshire.

Oops! This isn't all of the impeachment proposal! We was gypped by the video!


(Just so you won't have to listen to the singing.)

FISA, 'signing statements', use of depleted uranium ordnance, "misled the US Congress by deliberate or negligent falsehoods to obtain the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq", release of INS detainees...

Sinking the Titanic and Staining Monica's dress are probably in there somewhere.

It all amounts to "Bush is a poohead and I don't like him".

An embarrassing polyglot of antique liberal talking points, discredited rubbish and babbling dunderheadism.

Oh yeah... Now she's fasting.

"Have you noticed that with all the calls for impeachment of Bush and Cheney, you never hear any specific legal charges? "

From the National Lawyer's Guild:

Resolution on Impeachment of Bush and Cheney Whereas George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney:

1. deliberately misled the nation and doctored intelligence, as described in the Downing Street minutes, http://www.downingstreetmemo.com/memos.html about the threat from Iraq in order to justify a war of aggression and an occupation of Iraq, as further described in House resolution H. Res. 333 http://kucinich.house.gov/UploadedFiles/int3.pdfand as listed in House Resolution H. Res. 635 http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=hr109-635

2. committed crimes against peace by initiating war against Iraq in violation of the UN Charter http://www.worldpress.org/specials/iraq/;

3. committed crimes against humanity in their conduct of the occupation of Iraq in which they killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians and created millions of refugees http://www.guardian.co.uk/Iraq/Story/0,,1892888,00.html and http://edition.cnn.com/2 006/WORLD/meast/10/13/iraq.main/index.html;

4. killed over 3700 American soldiers and severely wounded nearly 30,000 more in the pursuit of an illegal, immoral, and unjust occupation of Iraq. While Bush and Cheney have stated no truthful noble cause for the war, one of the central purposes appears to be to take control of Iraq's immense oil reserves to financially benefit private corporate interests. See Bush's benchmark listing fact sheet released the same day Bush announced the "surge" that expressly called on the Iraq parliament to "enact hydrocarbons law to promote investment . . . " http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2007/01/20070110-3.html and http://www.alternet.org/waroniraq/56672/;

5. committed further crimes against peace by threatening Iran in violation of the UN Charter, as described in House resolution H. Res. 333 http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi- bin/query/z?c110:H.RES.333: and http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/6649053.stm;

6. detained thousands of prisoners without charges and without providing the ability to confront their accusers at a fair trial http://thereport.amnesty.org/eng/Regions/Americas/United-States-of- America;

7. condoned the torture of prisoners in violation of the Geneva Conventions, the US anti-torture statute of 1994, the US War Crimes Act of 1996, and the oath of office http://hrw.org/english/docs/2004/05/24/usint8614.htm and http://thereport.amnesty.org/eng/Regions/Americas/United-States-of-America and http://www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/2006/03/24/bush_shuns_patriot_act_requirement/. Bush's refusal to faithfully execute the laws prohibiting torture and his declaration on February 7, 2002 that the Geneva Conventions did not apply to prisoners in Afghanistan and in Guantanamoset the stage for torture there http://hrw.org/reports/2004/usa0604/2.htm. The Rumsfeld approved Guantanamo torture techniques were then imported to Iraq in August 2003, where the International Committee of the Red Cross found "systemic" mistreatment of Iraqi prisoners in several facilities and where the Schlesinger Report confirmed in August 2004 that abuses were "widespread" and "serious both in number and in effect," and that there is both "institutional and personal responsibility at higher levels;"

8. approved at least two different illegal electronic surveillance programs of American citizens without a warrant in violation of the fourth amendment and in violation of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978, and repeatedly lied to the American people by stating that no surveillance was taking place without a court order. The first program includes intercepting phone and email conversations without warrants and was exposed by the NY Times on December 16, 2005 http://emoglen.law.columbia.edu/CPC/NYT_15cnd-program.html. After that programwas exposed Bush said the program was carefully targeted to just include international calls and suspected members of Al Qaeda. Then, the second program was exposed by USA Today on May 11, 2006. It provides a wholesale attack on the fourth amendment by recording call identification information of tens of millions of purely domestic calls as well as international calls http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2006-05-10-nsa_x.htm;

9. attacked basic human rights protections in the constitution including habeas corpus, fifth amendment freedom from loss of life, liberty and property without due process of law, eighth amendment freedom from cruel and unusual punishment, and fourth amendment freedom fromunreasonable search and seizure;

10. attacked the separation of powers in an effort to consolidate power in the executive;

11. attacked the messenger who revealed that Bush "twisted" intelligence "to exaggerate the Iraqithreat." Just as Nixon retaliated against former Pentagon analyst Daniel Ellsberg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Ellsberg, according to papers filed in court by special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald in April 2006, there was "concerted action" by "multiple people in the White House" to "discredit, punish or seek revenge against" former Ambassador Joseph Wilson for his July 6, 2003 NY Times op ed piece http://www.nytimes.com/2003/07/06/opinion/06WILS.html?ex=1372824000&en=6c6aeb1ce960dec0&ei=5007 that ripped the cover off of Bush's false assertions in his 2003 state of the union address that Iraq was trying to buy uranium from Africa for building a nuclear bomb. In retaliation, and to silence other would-be critics, the White House collected information about Wilson and disclosed to reporters that his wife, Valerie Plame, was a covert agent in the CIA counterinsurgency division, putting her life, and the lives of her contacts, at risk in violation of a US law protecting intelligence personnel (The Impeachment of George W. Bush, by Elizabeth Holtzman);

12. as the sole person under the Federal Stafford Act with responsibility and authority to issue emergency orders to mobilize the military and any federal resources needed to aid and assist in a disaster (see Failure of Initiative, February 2006 report of the House Select Bipartisan Committee to investigate the Preparations for and the Response to Hurricane Katrina http://katrina.house.gov/), Bush failed to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, violated the public trust, and demonstrated reckless and inexcusable indifference to human life before, during and after Hurricane Katrina. Bush knew but did not act until too late, and then he lied about it on national TV. Footage and transcripts from briefings Aug. 25-31 demonstrate that Bush was personally told well in advance of the "unprecedented strength" of the hurricane, the "devastating damage expected," and that "water shortages will make human suffering incredible," according to highly accurate predictions by the National Weather Service. The Associated Press reported that "in dramatic and sometimes agonizing terms, federal disaster officials warned President Bush and his homeland security chief before Hurricane Katrina struck that the storm could breach levees, put lives at risk in New Orleans' Superdome and overwhelmrescuers, according to confidential video footage," http://www.truthout.org/cgi- bin/artman/exec/view.cgi/47/18079. Yet Bush failed to muster resources to evacuate residents in advance and failed to assist New Orleans residents after Hurricane Katrina hit. Then three days later Bush told Good Morning America, "I don't think that anybody anticipated a breach of the levees." http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp- dyn/content/article/2006/03/02/AR2006030202130.html In years before the storm Bush demonstrated inexcusable criminal negligence and violated the public trust by cutting the budget for hurricane defense, though the high probability of the breaching of the levees and the enormous risk to human life from a major hurricane hitting New Orleans were predicted and well known for years before the hurricane hit http://www.cnn.com/2005/US/09/03/katrina.chertoff/index.html;

13. failed to take care that the laws be faithfully executed by issuing signing statements that claim the authority to disobey laws based on the president's own interpretation of their constitutionality, and then by taking action in violation of these laws, including the US law making torture a crime, laws regarding Congressional oversight that require providing information to Congress, laws regarding domestic spying, laws regarding civil liberties, and laws strengthening whistle blower protection, thereby expanding the president's own power by stepping into the legislative and judicial functions at the expense of Congress and the courts, upsetting the balance among the three branches of government, and moving us away fromthe rule of law toward vastly increased executive power; http://www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/2006/04/30/bush_challenges_hundreds_of_l aws/ and http://www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/2006/03/24/bush_shuns_patriot_act_requirement/;

14. converted the Justice Department into an arm of the Republican Party by firing meritorious federal prosecutors who refused to base decisions on whom to prosecute on political considerations--to help Republicans win election, an offense James Madison discussed in a speech to the Senate on June 17, 1789, in which Madison said, " The danger then consists merely in this, the president can displace from office a man whose merits require that he should be continued in it. What will be the motives which the president can feel for such abuse of his power, and the restraints that operate to prevent it? In the first place, he will be impeachable by this house, before the senate, for such an act of mal-administration; for I contend that the wanton removal of meritorious officers would subject him to impeachment and removal from his own hightrust." http://www.gwu.edu/ffcp/mep/displaydoc.cfm?docid=fc11904http://www.commondreams.org/archive/2007/03/27/113/print/;

15. condoned criminal conduct and obstructed justice by commuting the sentence of convicted perjurer Scooter Libby to keep him silent and to demonstrate that Bush and Cheney will not allow high officials in the administration to be held accountable for their criminal acts;

16. obstructed congressional investigations of these and other acts by the administration by defying subpoenas from Senate and House committees seeking documents and testimony under oath by administration officials and former administration officials; and

Whereas the constitution requires the president to take the following oath of office: "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States;" and

Whereas the constitution provides that the president "shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed;" and

Whereas the constitution mandates that "the President, Vice President and all civil Officers ofthe United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors;" and

Whereas impeachment was so important to our founding fathers that it is mentioned six times in five different sections of the constitution; and Whereas George Mason, a primary author of the Constitution, said that impeachment was the single most important part of the entire document. "Shall any man be above Justice? Above all shall that man be above it who can commit the most extensive injustice?" http://gunstonhall.org/georgemason/constitution.html July 20, 1787; and

Whereas "high Crimes and Misdemeanors" is a term of art that means a serious abuse of power, whether or not it is also a crime, that endangers our constitutional system of government, or an abuse of public trust. (See Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment: Report of the House Judiciary Committee, 1974, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/special/clinton/stories/watergatedoc_3.htm, articles by Elizabeth Holzman who served on the House Judiciary Committee during the impeachment hearings of Richard Nixon in 1974 http://www.thenation.com/doc/20060130/holtzman; and http://www.thenation.com/docprint.mhtml?i=20070212&s=holtzman, and the book, The Impeachment of George W. Bush, by Elizabeth Holtzman)

Whereas each of the above listed acts meets or exceeds that standard; and

Whereas impeachment is the only constitutional method to protect Americans from a president intent on abusing power, violating the constitution, violating the laws, and breaching public trust; and

Whereas Bush and Cheney threaten further crimes, including launching a war of aggression against Iran, and whereas sufficient time remains in their term of office for them to commit thosecrimes so allowing either or both of them to remain in office for that remaining time will facilitate these crimes, and

whereas pretexts for attacking Iran have been issued, as described by a former CIA Middle East field officer and current Time Magazine columnist http://www.time.com/time/printout/0,8816,1654188,00.html; and

Whereas failing to hold Bush and Cheney accountable not only condones their crimes but facilitates a future president committing similar or greater crimes; and

Whereas members of Congress swear an oath to "support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic," and no part of this oath permits exception for partisan advantage, the next election, political expediency, whether it is distracting from other issues, or how much time they have left in office; and

Whereas failure by Congress to initiate the one remedy--impeachment--provided by our founding fathers to protect the constitution from such serious abuses has put that constitution, the rule of law, civil liberties, our democratic form of government, the separation of powers, the lives of our men and women in uniform, and the lives of countless civilians at severe risk; and

Whereas citizen pressure led the Vermont State Senate and 87 cities and towns around the nation to pass impeachment resolutions; and

Whereas a poll conducted by http://www.americanresearchgroup.com on July 5, 2007 found that 54% of American adults want the US House of Representatives to begin impeachmentproceedings against Vice President Dick Cheney while only 40% oppose, and whereas the poll also found that 45% are in favor of the same thing for President George W. Bush while 46% oppose; and

Whereas in view Congress' ongoing complicity with the war, the torture, the lies, the warrantless wiretapping, and the imprisonment without trial, and its failure to protect rights and civil liberties, it is up to the people themselves to defend the constitution and our civil liberties by building larger grassroots movements, including a movement for impeachment;

Therefore be it resolved that the National Lawyers Guild calls upon the U.S. House of Representatives to immediately initiate impeachment proceedings, to investigate the charges, and if the investigation supports the charges, to vote to impeach George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney as provided in the Constitution of the United States of America; and

Be it further resolved that the National Lawyers Guild will establish an NLG Impeachment Committee open to all members to coordinate action by the NLG in support of impeachment, to work with national and grassroots impeachment organizations, and to provide legal assistance for those efforts to strengthen the national campaign for impeachment; and

Be it further resolved that the NLG Impeachment Committee will help organize and coordinate events at the local, state, and national level to build public participation in the campaign to initiate impeachment investigation, impeachment, and removal of Bush and Cheney from office without further delay; and

Be it further resolved that the National Lawyers Guild calls on NLG members to ask their respective member of Congress to support H. Res. 333 to impeach Cheney and to introduce or support other impeachment resolutions; and

Be it further resolved that the National Lawyers Guild calls on all other state and national bar associations, state and local government bodies, community organizations, labor unions, and all other citizen associations to adopt similar resolutions and to use all their resources to build the campaign demanding that Congress initiate impeachment investigation, impeach, and remove Bush and Cheney from office without further delay; and

Be it further resolved that the National Lawyers Guild will forward a copy of this resolution to the Speaker and the Clerk of the US House of Representatives, to Representative John Conyers, Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, to the various state and federal bar associations, to other peace and justice organizations, and to the news media.

Implementation: By the NLG Impeachment Committee established by this resolution, by interested local chapters, and by national officers. Submitted by: James Marc Leas, jolly39@juno.com

The resolution cosponsors are: Audrey Bomse, Marjorie Cohn, Laura Safer Espinoza, John Wheat Gibson , Eileen Hansen, Larry Hildes, Jim Klimaski, Jordan Kushner, Jim Lafferty, James Marc Leas, Kerry McLean, Bill Monning, Dorinda Moreno, Michael Ratner, Susan Scott, Jennifer Van Bergen, Aaron Varhola, Karen Weill

To impeach the President of the United States, a majority of the United States House of Representatives must agree to pass a resolution that alleges the President committed "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors." This impeachment resolution is also commonly called an "Article of Impeachment" and spells out in detail the charges against the President. The House of Representatives then exhibits these Articles of Impeachment to the United States Senate since the latter body has the "sole Power" to "try all impeachments."

What a pack of masturbatory "progressive" lawyers (google them, you can smell the patchouli), tiny towns in Wankerchussetts or the Berkley City Council crapheads do is so much fart gas.

That 'Downing Street Memo' for instance, was exposed (or the 'Progressive' interpretation of the Memo, which actually does exist) as total crap. The rest of that rant isn't even as good as the lousy DSM crap. These guys are possibly even DUmber than the troofers.

hahahaha. Wow. I mean seriously, are drugs legal in NH? I did not know that. For the National Lawyer's Guild (formerly known as the unofficial Soviet Front Group) wanker:

"http://www.nytimes.com/2003/07/06/opinion/06WILS.html?ex=1372824000&en=6c6aeb1ce960dec0&ei=5007 that ripped the cover off of Bush's false assertions in his 2003 state of the union address that Iraq was trying to buy uranium from Africa for building a nuclear bomb."

(The British supplied the intel, and oh, by the way, MI6 still stands by it, as it appears Iraq was trying to buy yellow cake afterall...Wilson now lamely claims he misspoke: http://www.slate.com/id/2103795/)

"In retaliation, and to silence other would-be critics, the White House collected information about Wilson and disclosed to reporters that his wife, Valerie Plame, was a covert agent in the CIA counterinsurgency division,"

(There is no such thing as a CIA counterinsurgency division. Are there actual lawyers at the National Lawyer's Guild? Seriously, was this so-called resolution written by an adult, or by a reasonably intelligent 10 year old? Plame was an analyst in the CIA's Counter-PROLIFERATION section. And decidedly NOT clandestine. Her husband is the one who exposed her FORMER (Ie, 90's era, and she even blew her own cover by applying for a freaking mortgage using her actual office address in the embassy she was assigned to. Genius.) clandestine status, and Richard Armitage passed it around town. The Post sums Joseph Wilson and his stories very well with "It's unfortunate that so many people took him seriously.") http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/08/31/AR2006083101460.html

"putting her life, and the lives of her contacts, at risk in violation of a US law protecting intelligence personnel (The Impeachment of George W. Bush, by Elizabeth Holtzman);"

(See above, if you really believe it, when will the National Lawyer's Guild be calling for Joseph Wilson to be charged for "putting her life, and the lives of her contacts, at risk in violation of a US law protecting intelligence personnel"

I'm still waiting, but wisely NOT holding my breath. Seriously, were not laughing WITH you, Comrade, we're laughing AT you.
