America at the Breaking Point

Calls for a "COUP" are louder than those for impeachment

From the October 2006 Idaho Observer:

Calls for "coup" becoming louder than "impeachment"

Conviction of a president upon impeachment requires an objective Congress and Senate to review evidence and rule impartially. With overwhelming evidence of presidential criminality, Senate failed to convict President Clinton during an impeachment process that primarily focused on allegation he lied to cover his sexual adventures.

Americans are beginning to realize an attempt to impeach President Bush would be frustrated by the deeply compromised 109th Congress, which is complicit in the 9/11 coverup, passage of the Patriot Act, the "war on terrorism" and wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, passage of the Military Commissions Act—and the exponentially-escalating federal debt to pay for it all. Where the appropriate bipartisan response to the Foley underage boy sexual predator scandal should have been disgust and outrage, Capitol Hill has been curiously silent.

There is no impeachment process available under these circumstances because the entirety of both houses and the cabinets are complicit in the crimes of the president—or afraid to act on them.

For the first time in recent memory, the words, "coup d’etat," starting as a whisper, are getting louder and louder. The IO was CCd with a letter to Admiral Timothy J. Keating demanding that he declare Washington, D.C., a crime scene, arrest the Bush administration, Congress and a few key civilians for a plethora of enumerated crimes and oversee the peaceful transition of political power back into (honest) civilian hands.

Dennis Morrisseau, a former army lieutenant and candidate for Congress from Vermont, has publicly called for Joint Chief Chairman General Peter Pace to arrest President Bush and Vice-president Cheney to prevent an unauthorized attack on Iran.

A widely-circulated electronic missive from "Jonas the Prophet" identified the Bush administration as the #1 security threat in the world today and a "swift, precise, coordinated and comprehensive
military coup d’etat, supported and endorsed by the international community of peoples and nations, is clearly the clarion call and urgent requirement for this hour."

What makes you think that if our government fell today, the American population would replace it with something better? Revolutions are bloody business, and there’s absolutely no guarantee that even with the best of intentions the resulting new government would be an improvement over the current one. Indeed, it could be much worse. For that matter, revolution only makes sense once the people understand the problem. Thanks to a complicit media, most people don't have the information they need to fully understand what’s currently happening in America, so before we can create positive change, we must help them to understand the situation we're in. We don't do that by pushing them away with what appears to be extremism. We must use skillful means to reveal the tyranny of this administration (and government in general). We can do this by making reasonable demands (for instance, that suspicious activities become subject to investigation). Each time we're denied, more and more people will see the injustice (especially when we take to the streets each time!). Slowly we’ll get enough people on board to create the changes we need, whether our goal is gradual repair of the system or revolution. But either way, the path is the same: First, we try to change the system. When the system shows itself to be tyrannical, the people will move closer to revolution. Of course, if the system changes favorably, then we’ve won a victory — and maybe the theory that the system is hopelessly tyrannical is flawed. The real point is that political change is a process, and we need to have the resolve to see it through. Demanding immediate perfection is unrealistic and counterproductive, and too easily turns into a cop-out for failing to do the hard work of creating meaningful change.
Do-It-Yourself Impeachment, no joke.
The Citizens' movement.

The day the nation demands impeachment is almost upon us. On Jan 3rd, sacks and sacks of mail will be sent to congress demanding impeachment via the House of Representative's own rules. This legal document is as binding as if a State or if the House itself passed the impeachment resolution (H.R. 635).

There's a little known and rarely used clause of the "Jefferson Manual" in the rules for the House of Representatives which sets forth the various ways in which a president can be impeached. Only the House Judiciary Committee puts together the Articles of Impeachment, but before that happens, someone has to initiate the process.

That's where we come in. In addition to the State-by-State method, one of the ways to get impeachment going is for individual citizens like you and me to submit a memorial., part of the movement to impeach the president, has created a new memorial based on one which was successful in impeaching a federal official in the past. You can find it on their website as a PDF.


You can initiate the impeachment process yourself by downloading the memorial, filling in the relevant information in the blanks (your name, state, etc.), and sending it in. Be a part of history.
