This afternoon, at approximately 5 p.m. (EDT), the Clerk of the House of Representatives will give the first reading of the Article of Impeachment of President George Bush. Article One charges the President with deceiving Congress with fabricated threats of Iraq WMDs to fraudulently obtain support for an authorization of the use of military force against Iraq.
Once the Clerk reads the bill, I will move to refer the bill to the Judiciary Committee for hearings. I believe the American people have a right to an open airing of the charges against this President. Did he or did he not lie to take us into a war? I believe the evidence is overwhelming that President Bush knew that Iraq was not an imminent threat, was not in possession of WMDs at the time, and had nothing to do with 911 or with al Queda’s role in 911. And yet, despite having facts to the contrary, he took the U.S. into war with devastating consequences for our troops, our nation, and the people of Iraq. Congress must hold hearings.
It’s a little bit of history we can all watch. Hope all six of my readers will check it out on Cspan.
Update: The House vote to move the Impeach Article to the Judiciary committee has passed! One Democrat voted no but 7 Republicans voted yes! Final vote total: Yeas-238 No-180
Praise Buddha! Although Conyers has already said they will only discuss the measure, they will not forward it out of committee.
Sweet Jesus in a speedo..can it be true? How did I miss this Thursday? Kucinich introduced another article of Impeachment and according to Politico and USA Today, Nan has stated hearings on the article might very well be held in the House Judiciary committee. The money quote:
“This is a Judiciary Committee matter, and I believe we will see some attention being paid to it by the Judiciary Committee,Not necessarily taking up the articles of impeachment because that would have to be approved on the floor, but to have some hearings on the subject. My expectation is that there will be some review of that in the committee,”
The video below is Kucinich’s introduction of his latest article of Impeachment entitled: “Deceiving Congress with Fabricated Threats of Iraq WMDs to Fraudulently Obtain Support for an Authorization of the Use of Military Force Against Iraq“. He introduced this article on Thursday after Nancy Pelosi made her statement. The video is short..a little over two minutes in length.
Way to GO DENNIS!!! A democrat with a backbone..its a wonder to behold m’dear reader.
On Countdown tonight, Constitutional Law Prof Jonathan Turley discussed Kucinich’s 35 articles of Impeachment.
it hangs in FireFox, but works just marvy in IE..which I hate to use anytime.
Turley addresses the Democrats lack of spine as well…true dat.
Bet this just jacked Pelosi’s jaw..good!
Thanks to C&L for the video.
From Tom at Politics Plus, we get this video.
Call or email the jackass’s at the Register, the info for that is the post below. Let them know its NOT ok to push Kucinich out of the final Iowa debate on a freaking technicality. As Dave noted in my comments..the fact that the Des Moines Register is now owned by Gannett says alot about them and why they have become a Rag of a newspaper.
EDIT: from one of our commenters on Sirens Chronicles, Bill, we get info on their advertisers:
CALL advertisers off their web site. Be polite, ask to speak to the sales, general
manager or person in charge of advertising. Object to their advertising in
a paper that would include Keyes in the Republican debate, but exclude

If you are feeling REALLY frisky, go into classified ads and contact people who have something for sale and object to them advertising in the paper. IT WORKS. They call the paper back and say WTF?
