Takoma Park, MD City Council Votes Unanimously to Impeach both Bush and Cheney

This web site is devoted to inspiring and supporting citizens who demand a return to our Constitutional government.

The purpose of this web site is to highlight:

  1. The fact that: Executive Privilege does NOT apply in an impeachment inquiry… Many people do not know this! This is why we must start the hearings NOW. It is not too late. The Executive arm has too much power-has crushed the Constitution – rendered congress ineffective  and it continues on the path of tyranny, corruption and murder. The Constitution says we MUST IMPEACH – must enter this into the RECORD, RIGHT the WRONGS and RESTORE the RULE of LAW. IMPEACHMENT INQUIRIES ARE THE ONLY WAY.
    • Watch Video: Constitutional Law Scholar and MD State Senator Jamie Raskin talk about this at our town meeting.
    • Watch the July 25 judiciary committee hearing! this was amazing! watch the witnesses* and some of our congressmembers stand up for the constitution! sets the ground work for the next steps. Call Conyers and Pelosi after you watch this and demand impeachment inquiries be started. * If you watch just one video or witness, watch Vincent Bugliosi!!
  2. WHAT YOU CAN DO: With Kucinich introducing 35 articles of impeachment for BUSH tonight, June 9th, and with what McClellan has revealed, we have an opportunity to renew our push for impeachment hearings and accountability. No one is above the law…Call your reps and especially John Conyers (202) 225-5126 –
    Capitol Hill Switchboard: (202) 224-2131 , (800) 828-0498
  3. The crimes of the Bush Administration — Imagine what we don’t know and how badly hearings are needed.
  4. More ideas for impeach supporters…
  5. Presentations and Speeches by pro-impeachment speakers.
  6. Takoma Park, MD Resolution as a case study. (Citizens organized and our city council recently passed a Resolution calling for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney, based on H.Res.333 but with the additional charges of torture, FISA and signing statements. We are marching this resolution forward and pressing onward and upward. See the documentary information in the next section.)
  7. Citizens who are making a difference and standing up for what they believe in. (See One Minute Videos below).

The video projects featured on this site:

  1. One Minute Citizen Interviews. Part of the Truth, Peace and Impeachment Video Series. Clips average 1-3 minutes in length. Democracy requires participation. These are personal examples of citizens standing up and speaking out for change.
  2. Presentations by Pro-impeach Speakers. These are in-depth presentations or talks by researchers, scholars and leaders in the impeach movement. Part of the Truth, Peace and Impeachment Video Series.
  3. Takoma Park, MD says IMPEACH THEM!” This documentary and related videos (clips: news ch. 4, news ch.5, MSNBC) offer a close look at a city and it’s citizens that organized and brought a resolution to Impeach President Bush and Vice President Cheney to the city council’s attention and spoke for it. When the city council voted unanimously to pass the resolution, Takoma Park became one of over 80 cities that have done so thus far. Many Takoma Park citizens are still working for impeachment, at the county level, congressional level and in other areas.

The opinions published on the blog and in the comment sections are of the respective authors, not necessarily those of impeachthem.

  1. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    The Million Postcard March: Changing the World One Stamp at a Time

    Portland, Oregon-2007-Local artist and grass-roots activist, Brian Steinberg, is on a one-man postcard-writing campaign. To achieve his goal of putting impeachment back “on the table” for President George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, Steinberg created handmade postcards with a pro-impeachment message and sent them to every Democratic member of Congress.

    “I was frustrated by what was happening in the government and I wanted my voice to be heard. The postcards were inspired by the posters I saw at protest rallies. I thought, wouldn’t it be great if I could send one to my congressperson. Then I thought, why stop there? So I decided to create and send a postcard to every Democrat in Congress, 231 in all.”

    Steinberg has completed all of the postcards and has since mailed them. The finished work can be viewed on the website, PostcardProtest.com. He will also post any reply-letters he receives from Congress on the site.

    Steinberg’s hope is that a congressperson will see and read his postcards and champion action towards impeachment. “At the very least, I think that it would be great if a staff- person sees my card and keeps a record of it on file. I have read that some congresspersons keep letters on file and refer to them before weighing in on an issue.”

    Steinberg has also written an instructional booklet on how to create your own postcards for social and political campaigns. You can contact him via email for a free digital version.

    Despite the efforts of some, in 2009 it is fifteen (15) of fifty nine (59) years later without the U.S. Congress’s then known violations corrected; REFERENCES [1] thru [7]: A. In 1950 the U.S. Supreme Court Feres Docturine holds the federal government harmless for injuries to military personnel.[1] B. The 1950 DOD Secretary issued a no non-consensual military human experimentation memo.[2] C. In Sept. 1994 there was the U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO) Military “Human Experimentation” “Testimony” on injured military personnel.[3] D. In Oct. 1994 the Chief Judge of Congress’s 1988 established inferior U.S. Court of Veterans Appeals (COVA) stated that the, “Constitution, statutes and regulations” are “policy freely ignored” by both the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) and “The Veterans Health Administration” (VHA). Also there is the, “The” Veterans Appeals “court may not review the schedule of ratings for disabilities or the policies underlying the schedule.”[4] That is the herein “STATE OF COURT” transcript PARAGRAPH 9 with Congress’s law of the land, no allowed Court review U.S. CODE, TITLE 38, SECTIONS (§) 511 and § 7252. Decisions of the Secretary; finality; [5] & [6]. and C. The 54 page Dec. 94 U.S. Senate’s “hundreds of thousands” of military guinea pigs acknowledgment plus its, “The Feres Doctrine should not be applied for military personnel who are harmed by inappropriate human experimentation when informed consent has not been given.”[7] The GAO and U.S. Senate established experimentation caused issues can not be addressed by COVA or by any other U.S. Court! Accordingly, do not these violations now continue?

    Underlying all, the 1950 U.S. Supreme Court’s FERES DOCTRINE holds the the federal government harmless for no matter the cause, injuries to active duty personnel.[1] On 26 February 1953 was the DOD Secretary’s NO non-consensual, human experiment’s Memo.[2] Thereby an after order disobeyed dereliction of duty demonstrated by the GAO and U.S. Senate in [3] & [7]! In 1988 the U.S. Congress’s Veteran’s Judicial Review Act created COVA. This is a U.S. Congressional no teeth inferior LEGISLATIVE, NOT a Judicial Branch Court. It can not hold the DOD & DVA responsible for the underlying facts of a case. Its Chief Judge describes veterans captured within an out of control, DVA health care process. Lost is a prior to military service right to a facts of the case reviewing and precedence setting, superior Judicial Branch Court. All veterans are captured within the “freely ignored” “Constitution, statutes and regulations” Executive Branch. To date the DOD Secretary’s disobeyed order, the GAO, Veterans Court Chief Judge and U.S. Senate noted violations have not been corrected! Now gone for both active U.S. Service Personnel and U.S. Veterans are the check and balances between our branches of government, i.e., the Legislative (U.S. House and Senate), the Executive (e.g., Departments of Defense [DOD] and Veterans Affairs [DVA]) and the Judicial. In 2006 under the “Pandemic All-Hazards Preparedness Act” the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) was established.[8] Under its “national security missions” is an in the foot steps follow on to the Department of Defense (DOD) injuring biomedical research documented by the GAO and U.S. Senate.[3] & [7]!

    A couple of examples of the “initial adjudicators” to date “freely ignored” are this veterans 1957 DVA Physician’s resultant USAF Physician’s, “MPerR PERMANENT” “SURGEON HQ ARRC JUN 25 ‘58 MEDICALLY DISQUALIFIED FOR MILITARY SERVICE” (1952 to 1956)! Then the layman adjudicator’s brainless 6/27/96 Supplemental Statement Of Case (SSOC) no “…competent medical evidence…”. After an ongoing 18 years in the DVA administrative process the veteran receives a 100%disability. To date there is still no recognition of their 1957 DVA physician’s resultant 1958 USAF physician “disqualified”!

    ——————–PARAGRAPH 9 of 16 in “STATE OF COURT” TRANSCRIPT records DVA laymen ignoring medical opinion without veteran recourse.—————————–

    “I believe my message is clear. There is, I suggest, no system with judicial review which has within it a component part free to function in its own way, in its own time and with one message to those it disappoints — take an appeal. That is, I am afraid, what we have today in many of the Department’s Agencies of Original Jurisdiction — that is AOJs — around the country. Neither the Court, through the Board, the Board, nor the General Counsel has direct and meaningful control over the Agencies of Original Jurisdiction. Indeed, it is also clear that the VHA — the Veterans Health Administration — ignores specific directives to provide medical opinions as directed. And this is resulting in unconscionable delays. Let us examine judicial review. Remember, the Court and the Board do not make policy, the Secretary and Congress do. The Court simply identifies error made below by a failure to adhere, in individual cases, to the Constitution, statutes, and regulations which themselves reflect policy — policy freely ignored by many initial adjudicators whose attitude is, “I haven’t been told by my boss to change. If you don’t like it — appeal it.” The complete 16 paragraph “STATE OF COURT” transcript is available on request. Previously at, and now missing from the Chief Judges and state_of_court sites: http://www.goodnet.com/~heads/nebeker & http://www.firebase.net/state_of_court_brief.htm The legal-dictionary source “http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/federal+court”>Federal Courts notes in part: “The court may not review the schedule of ratings for disabilities or the policies underlying the schedule.”

    The top medically ignorant “boss” is Congress’s confirmed “Secretary” of the DVA.

    AND THE CONGRESS’S “policy freely ignored” UNITED STATES CODE law of the land, take away from Veterans:

    [5] UNITED STATES CODE, TITLE 38 > PART I > CHAPTER 5 > SUBCHAPTER I > § 511. Decisions of the Secretary; finality
    http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/html/usc…11—-000-.html

    “(a) The Secretary shall decide all questions of law and fact necessary to a decision by the Secretary under a law that affects the provision of benefits by the Secretary to veterans or the dependents or survivors of veterans. Subject to subsection (b), THE DECISION OF THE SECRETARY AS TO ANY SUCH QUESTION SHALL BE FINAL AND CONCLUSIVE AND MAY NOT BE REVIEWED BY ANY OTHER OFFICIAL OR BY ANY COURT, whether by an action in the nature of mandamus or otherwise.”

    THEREFORE, NO COURT REVIEW OF THE MEDICALLY UNTRAINED DVA laymen and “Secretary” “schedule of ratings for disabilities” decisions as proven by:

    [6] UNITED STATES CODE, TITLE 38 PART V > CHAPTER 72 > SUBCHAPTER I > § 7252. Jurisdiction; finality of decisions

    “(b) Review in the Court shall be on the record of proceedings before the Secretary and the Board. The extent of the review shall be limited to the scope provided in section 7261 of this title. THE COURT MAY NOT REVIEW THE SCHEDULE OF RATINGS FOR DISABILITIES adopted under section 1155 of this title or any action of the Secretary in adopting or revising that schedule.”
