Message from Barbara Cummings
Many, if not all of us are exhausted after the events of A28. But this is not the time to rest easy. Please call Mr Murtha tomorrow and beseech him to support Dennis Kucinich in his IMPEACHMENT resolution. WE must demand that IMPEACHMENT be put back on our table. WE ARE THE DECIDERS.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, is Mission Accomplished day. It is also a day when many brave and idealistic young lawyers will be in DC to protest the restrictions upon them relative to Guantanamo prisoners. The Justice Dept is trying to make the representation even more restrictive than it already is.
While you are calling, here is Ms Pelosi's number! Please, just take a couple of minutes and call her at `
Thank Murtha for Speaking Up for Impeachment
It looks like our impeachment efforts are making a real difference. Last week, when Dennis Kucinich introduced articles of impeachment for Dick Cheney, the Pentagon Post's Dana Milbank portrayed Kucinich as nuts. But if that was Karl Rove's way of trying to scare "respectable" Democrats away from Impeachment, that strategy backfired "bigtime," as Dick Cheney would say.
On CBS's Face the Nation on Sunday, Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) raised the possibility of impeaching the president.
"We've already compromised," Murtha said. "And we need to make this president understand, Mr. President, the public has spoken. There's three ways or four ways to influence a president. One is popular opinion, the election, third is impeachment, and fourth is the purse." Host Bob Schieffer followed up, pressing him on whether impeachment was a serious option on the table. Murtha responded, "I'm just saying that's one way to influence a president."
Murtha may have cleared his comments with Speaker Nancy Pelosi before his appearance, which would indicate that impeachment is back "on the table" where it belongs. But Murtha is going to get a lot of heat for speaking truth to power, and his staff will be inclined to back off. Murtha needs to hear our support and encouragement immediately.
Call Jack Murtha to thank him and ask him to sign onto Dennis Kucinich's bill to begin impeachment proceedings against Vice President Cheney: (202) 225-2065.
I AM GOING TO DC ON MAY 14TH FOR THE 10,00 MOTHER'S MARCH ON CONGRESS. CONSIDER JOINING IF YOU CAN AND IF YOU CAN'T PLEASE TAKE MONDAY MAY 14TH TO MAKE AS MANY PHONE CALLS AS YOU CAN IN FAVOR OF GETTING OUT OF IRAQ NOW. THEY KEEP SAYING "THE PEOPLE" DON'T SUPPORT LEAVING NOW SO WE MUST KEEP UP THE PRESSURE.
