From Martha Sullivan: Sorry if this is a duplicate, but I was so heartened to see it!
I just had to send it around.
As David says, following, it's not yet a true impeachment hearing but it IS a start after literally years of pushing from the grassroots (us). So let's keep that push going! Everyone's on alert to do as David suggests following, and of course wear your Impeach gear wherever you can the next week and ESPECIALLY next Frhe iday. Our local Impeach billboard, Barbara Cummings, of course is always on message :>)

IMPEACHMENT IS on the table -- now, let's remind our Congressional leaders how to use their flatware, so to speak --

Tickets for this exciting event will start at $1,000 per person and we expect it to sell out early.
Between now and the end of August, the Initiative aims to enlist Women's Finance Leadership Co-Chairs and Committees who pledge to raise the following for the National Issues Conference:
National Chairs ? Recruit 100 women conference attendees (or raise $100,000)
State Co-Chairs ? Recruit 50 women conference attendees (or raise $50,000)
Leadership Committee Members ? Recruit 25 women conference attendees (or raise $25,000)
NWFI leaders will be empowered to develop a series of events and programming within their communities to help raise funds and recruit other women. Bi-monthly conference calls with high-level surrogates will be held to keep the team connected to the campaign. The Leadership Committee will hold a special strategy session with high-level surrogates at the Democratic National Convention.

Key Vote on Outsourcing by San Diego City Council

BACKGROUND:


To cut costs, San Diego voters approved Prop C in 2006, which opens the doors further for contracting out of city services.

There are many pitfalls to watch for in outsourcing:
* Poor service: When contractors cut corners to maximize their profit, service levels and quality decline.
* Cost increases and lack of accountability: Contractors often bid low and then come back with cost overruns. And the city must pay more for administration and contract compliance.
* Loss of middle-class job with health benefits: Contractors often pay low wages and leave workers uninsured, shifting the cost of their health care to the rest of us.

We already have reason to be concerned regarding the city?s contract management and cost controls.
* Kroll Inc. bid $250,000 to review San Diego?s financial mess and ended up charging the city $20 million.
* Just recently, the Mayor?s office tried to give private consultant Grant Thornton a contract worth over $1 million to help create parts of the privatization process; meanwhile cuts were proposed for parks and pools.

For more information, please view our website at

Thank you for any help you can offer. We cannot afford outsourcing done wrong!

Think gas at $4.50 is expensive? Most oil industry geologists and analysts predict that within a few years, world oil production will reach a peak and then begin an irreversible decline, as huge decades-old oil fields are depleted. This is likely to significantly increase the price of everything produced from or transported using oil, including gasoline, plastic, chemicals, and food. Join Progressive San Diego and Huntington Beach Mayor Debbie Cook for a movie and discussion about peak oil, its impacts on our sprawling region, and what San Diego can do to mitigate its effects.

Debbie Cook, Mayor of Huntington Beach, California is an attorney and environmental activist and is currently running for U.S. Congress in California's 46th district. She serves on the boards of directors of the Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas (ASPO-USA) and the Post Carbon Institute, and has spoken internationally about what local governments can do in response to the imminent peak in world oil production.

6. ***Tell Your Newspaper We Cannot "Muddle Through" Afghanistan!***

VoteVets.org ~ The Voice of America's 21th Century Patriots

A recent video has been unearthed, in which Senator John McCain in 2003 says we can just "muddle through in Afghanistan."

TO VIEW THE VIDEO:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wazv45RYj60

http://ga3.org/campaign/muddle/search-zip?rk=&preview=f[url=http://ga3.org/campaign/muddle/search-zip?rk=&preview=f][/url]

WRITE A LETTER TO THE EDITOR

The video offers a glimpse into the true thinking of those, like McCain, who backed launching the war in Iraq and committing our forces there indefinitely. Particularly, they believed that Afghanistan wasn't a concern and we didn't need to take it seriously. In fact, just a year earlier, on CBS' Face the Nation, McCain said capturing Osama bin Laden wasn't "that important."

Five years later, we now see where that poor judgment and lack of insight has gotten us. The Taliban has regained large swaths of Afghanistan, al Qaeda has reconstituted itself, Osama bin Laden still is free, and Afghanistan is in crisis. All of that lends itself to our nation being that much less secure, and in much greater danger of another terrorist attack from extremists from the Pakistan/Afghanistan region.

This is not the way to win the war on terror and keep America safe. But, don't expect the mainstream media to report on and analyze all of this. It's up to you. That's why we've set up a Letter to the Editor tool, where you can view this video, and send a letter to your local newspaper about it.

SEND A LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Letters to the editor are the most read section of the daily paper. So when you write a letter, it will be seen by thousands of people in your area. So, take a moment to view this shocking video, and tell your local newspapers what you think.

Thanks for all of your support.
Sincerely,
Jon Soltz

7. *** DON'T FORGET TO PUT KARL ROVE IN JAIL!smile

Now, it's time to rekindle those efforts and do something that's long overdue: hold Rove accountable!

Since then, Rove has been subpoenaed by the House Judiciary Committee, and he smugly ignored the House's requests for information and testimony just like he did in the Senate. The difference is that the chairman of the House committee, Rep. John Conyers, has already proven his willingness to push through contempt citations, as he did for John Bolten and Harriet Miers, in part because of People For activists' efforts.

Our friends at Brave New Films have launched a great new video, Send Karl Rove to Jail, which makes the case clearly and brilliantly. And we're teaming up with Brave New Films and other progressive allies for a joint petition effort aimed at making sure the House Judiciary Committee does the right thing and cite Rove for contempt.

Check out the video and "SIGN THE PETITION" at http://www.pfaw.org/go/Rove. Then please forward this e-mail and ask all your friends to do the same.

Brave New Films originally had a goal of 100,000 petition signatures to be delivered by next week, and with the video's overwhelming response, they're almost there. If you sign, and then get one, two or more of your friends to sign, we can help blow that goal completely out of the water and bring the total to 125,000...150,000...or more!

***Let's show Karl Rove that he's not above the law!***
