They won’t impeach? – Let’s try this…

Our elected representatives have pat answers to the impeachment issue including: it will hurt the democrats and look like we are just trying to get even.

So now I think I’m going to change it up a bit and ask my Congressman, Chris Van Hollen, and members of the Judiciary Committee what they plan to do to hold Bush and Cheney (et al.) accountable for – oh, let’s say my top 35 from the 35 articles of impeachment against Bush that Patriot Dennis Kucinich introduced last week:

Mr. Van Hollen, since you have a pat answer and you don’t wish to honor your Constitutional duty to start impeachment hearings, Here is a brand new question for you: How do you plan to hold Bush and Cheney accountable for:

  1. Creating a Secret Propaganda Campaign to Manufacture a False Case for War Against Iraq.
  2. Falsely, Systematically, and with Criminal Intent Conflating the Attacks of September 11, 2001, With Misrepresentation of Iraq as a Security Threat as Part of Fraudulent Justification for a War of Aggression.

  1. I have the USA Patriot Act in my corner, whatcha’ got?

    ==================================

    Sentiment will not bring about impeachment; only an indictment with the most horrible crimes that shock and awe America will bring this administration down. Impeachment is the great American Shakespearean drama, and America is only in a position to play this drama out on T.V.. So let’s play ball.

    An indictment that grabs the attention of Americans and grabs the short hairs of Congress is the only indictment that will not be ignored.

    Kucinich is being ignored.

    Americans would be absolutely fascinated and entertained by the trial of bush and cheney using articles of impeachment based solely upon felony violations of the USA Patriot Act. Imagine the wealth of FOX television consultant contractors hired to pontificate on USA Patriot Act theory, imagine the ratings. Imagine the discovery powers a Judge would have under the USA Patriot Act, imagine. bush imagined, and look what it got him. It is your law and it is the only law that will terminate this un-American administration. bush and his gang are literally pressing the Adz into your trembling hands, daring you, teasing you, playing you.

    Tens of millions of dollars have been spent by the ‘media’ at large in conjunction with government propaganda offices to sell the war and the USA Patriot Act to Americans. This law shines, radiates an energy that when cast upon the accused paints them instantly and forever as horribly and terribly un-American. This is a directed political weapon and it must be focused on those who have committed felony violations of the USA Patriot Act. The USA Patriot Act is a new political weapon and the people must coop the strategy of Misaprion of a Felony within the scope of the felony provisions of the USA Patriot Act.

    It would have been a huge news story if Kucinich charged bush and cheney with felony violation of the USA Patriot Act; I mean that would be HUGE. bush and cheney would be absolutely terrified, stammering their responses through the limbags. Blogs would fume, tongues would lather, ivory towers would crash down and the dust would cover all of the media with a conspiratorial cloak stinking of un-Americanism. Yes, I ‘ism’ and ‘eason them in the same breath. The soldier who wins the war walks off to battle merrily for he knows he will return the same.

    When the roaches scurry, they leave tracks, and of course that’s all part of the hard-hitting prosecutorial strategy of using the USA Patriot Act to defend this nation from terrorism and those that aid and abet terrorism by disseminating false information on terrorism, a serious and egregious felony violation of the USA Patriot Act.

    If Kucinich would have simply indicted bush with articles that were fortified with the prosecutorial tools and discovery tools included within the felony provisions of the USA Patriot Act he would have effectively tarred and feathered bush. bush’s lawyers could then only attack the USA Patriot Act itself in order to destroy its power in the courts. America loves irony, a wild story, gotta love da’ juice baby. The vast majority has no interest in the Constitution or the law, unless it’s some hot babe on a police show poining a gun at a dude and shooting him. Ratings talk.

    Kucinich has no ratings.

    If you are going to bring down a warring tyrant then you will have to throw him to some very real lions. The lions in the USA Patriot Act make Kucinich’s application of old, tired laws, (that are being ignored also), a real disappointment. Kucinich needs some help with his presentation. He puts everybody to sleep.

    – WAKE UP AMERICA ! –

    Do you really want to drool yourself to sleep over 4 hours of droning old law stuff that has failed so often already, or do you want to see bush accused of un-American and illegal activities, felony violations of the USA Patriot Act … or does everybody want to pretend the USA Patriot Act like, doesn’t exist? New, new and improved impeachment brought to you by the felony prosecutorial provisions of the USA Patriot Act. How long would it take them to talk if their cellmate was in a secret prison in Egypt?

    Whatever … right?

    Prosecuting by making use of the felony provisions within the USA Patriot Act will bring bush down like a chain saw clears brush. The lawyers will be forced to attack the USA Patriot Act law and its extensions, they will have to attack the theory of the USA Patriot Act and dismember and destroy the USA Patriot Act and associated legislation in order to save their hides.

    And they would be branded as un-American for all time. They would hold up their executive orders signed by bush to shield him from the very laws he made to keep you in check, and then you would start to connect the dots. Then you would connect the dots.

    It really is in plain sight.

    Focus on real felonies, not emotional or bandwagon appeals and you will get your man.

    The glittering generalities of crime, banging on pots and pans will not indict or impeach. Congress is complicit in all of this, and some of them must also be charged with felony violation of the USA Patriot Act.

    Terrify them, please; they have terrified you with it all. Fight back with felony prosecution using the felony provisions of the USA Patriot Act and its extended legislations.
