TELL CONGRESS TO IMPEACH DICK CHENEY

Former President George H.W. Bush said it best when he called those who reveal the identities of covert agents "the most insidious of traitors." In reviewing testimony from the Scooter Libby trial, there's simply no question that Libby acted at the direction of his superiors when he leaked Valerie Plame's identity to multiple reporters. Libby worked, of course, directly for the Vice President.

The exposure of Plame's identity as a CIA agent almost certainly has had severe consequences for everyone she worked with overseas in trying to stop the spread of weapons of mass destruction. The loss of these assets and networks has done immeasurable harm to our country's security. Dick Cheney is directly responsible for that harm.

Mr. Cheney has also:

* systematically deceived Congress and the citizens of the United States regarding the potential threat of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq;

* systematically deceived Congress and the citizens of the United States in fabricating links between Iraq and al Qaeda which have never existed; and

* repeatedly threatened aggression against Iran, in violation of the United Nations charter, a treaty which the U.S. has signed and is thus -- according to our Constitution -- the supreme law of the land.

These last three charges form the basis of House Resolution 333, Articles of Impeachment against Dick Cheney, introduced by Representative Kucinich of Ohio. As of late June 2007, fourteen members of Congress have signed on to H.R. 333. Ask your representative to sign on as a co-sponsor.

Help The Final Push to Impeachment

It's time! ImpeachForPeace.org is traveling to Washington DC at the end of this month to deliver thousands of Do-It-Yourself Impeachment Memorials to key representatives in the House!

Support for impeachment is building. As of this writing, 14 reps are supporting Dennis Kucinich's resolution to impeach Dick Cheney (H. Res. 333).

Even if you've sent them to your congressperson before, Click here to send us your DIY Memorials before we go.

You may not realize that the only thing standing between where we are today and a nationally televised impeachment investigation is the House Judiciary passing this resolution, which is currently awaiting consideration in their committee. The head of this committee, John Conyers, has said recently that he supports the national impeachment movement.

All we need to push it over the edge is public support, and that's where we come in.

Video of our trip will be posted on our website shortly upon our return. We'll let you know when it's up!

Here's a funny video about this unique strategy

I urge you and your readers to take a few minutes to look at:

It's a list of the 25 most recent comments made by real Americans participating in an online poll/letter-writing campaign concerning the impeachment charges recently filed against Vice President Cheney, which are now being evaluated by the House Judiciary Committee. Comments can be sent to elected representatives and local newspapers at your option. The participation page is at:

Since this campaign began, several members of Congress have signed on as co-sponsors, in part due to hearing from their constituents. Has yours? Make your voice heard, and let others know!

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
