Impeachment, Dissent and the Demand for Justice

Why Americans Want Bush Gone

How contempt, sheer arrogance and subversion of our rule of law by the Bush administration has spawned the emergence of a galvanized and ever-growing portion of the population to join in the impeachment movement.

Frank J. Ranelli

Five plus years after George W. Bush and his PNAC-backed thugs stole the presidency and took hostage the Whitehouse; impeachment has finally entered the mainstream. A few weeks ago, President Bush kept grumbling how the main stream media was not reporting the “good things” coming out of Iraq. Desperate times require desperate measures, I guess. The rancid stench of this desperate move to again deflect and deceive, this time on the media, can be smelled from miles away now. Bush’s approval ratings have tanked, American’s are growing increasingly restless and disgruntled about ‘Bush’s war’ and more people are waking up to a perverse and psychotic Bush vision: A “benevolent” supremacy of world interference and control, harnessed by a pre-emptive war doctrine; the first of its kind for the United States of America.

There is no doubt that Bush’s counterfeit administration has used every tactic from intimidation by fear, extortion, religion, deceit, prevarication and redirection to stave off the inevitable - that America now knows it was sold a bill of tainted goods! A sack full of mendacity that fleeced us of our tax payers’ dollars, shed the blood of our children and stole the lives of countless innocent people in the Middle East.

Make no mistake, America is sometimes slow to react, but eventually she catches on. As people slowly unwrap themselves from the flag – the same flag Bush used to coronate himself with as emperor of the “New American Century”- there is an incendiary front that is sweeping across the nation. The upfront, candid truth that our current President violated the rule of law, repeatedly lied to us all and his condescension towards the Constitution warrant impeachment and removal from office immediately!

Impeaching and removing a sitting president is a very unpleasant, almost an unimaginable course of action for most Americans, as it symbolizes a failure for America. Impeachment conjures feelings of betrayal – born of an act of incorrigible patriotic infidelity – and a show of disgraceful weakness. However, the downright contempt, sheer arrogance and the audacity to subvert our rule of law, undermine our devotion for insidious purposes have galvanized an ever-growing portion of the population to join in the impeachment movement. We, as true Americans, categorically have had enough of the “just trust me” Bush administration.

There is a vital and warranted need for necessary dissent in a sea of hypocrisy and lies that radiate from the treacherous Bush regime. There is nothing more patriotic than engaging the dishonesty, deceit and corruption of a government that no longer represents the people whom elected it. The patriotic duty to petition the government of our grievances, seek remedies from wrong-doing and to abolish the government if it is corrupt or fails to no longer serve the will of the people.

Yes, George Bush, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Donald Rumsfeld and the rest of the PNAC signatories have been “running game” on America for over five years. We have been bullied, labeled unpatriotic, un-American, accused of aiding terrorists, dissected and forced to “choose sides.” All this while Bush’s band of thieves ran rough-shod and unchecked looting through our national treasury, subverting the Constitution and throwing dead bodies of American soldiers on their pile of rumble in a wake of irresponsible chaos and destruction.

America, the old America, was just fine without Bush and we are tired of being constantly poked with “9/11 this, 9/11 that” to elicit an emotion response. We get it; a few, rogue extremists high-jacked some planes, hit some buildings and harmed a lot of people. We are all deeply saddened, and want those actually responsible for it brought to justice. That being said, America never willingly signed up for pre-emptive, endless wars, an imperial president above the law, congressional corruption unlike anything we have ever seen in the past, leveraging three future generations of debt to the Chinese and being illegally spied on by our own government!

No, the game is up, the hoax is over, the deception has been laid bare and the bearings have been spun-out of the Bush misinformation machine to fool and frighten America. When Bush pumped us fool of bravado and hubris to sell his war he quietly snickered, caveat emptor- “let the buyer beware.” Well George, we are all now aware of what you have done, why you did it and we not only want our money back, but our country, too! Impeachment is just around the corner, your removal from office is closer than you think and the return of a peaceful country of modesty and restraint is already in progress.

Mr. President, you say you want the media to report the good? Well, I am proud to say they have! Just last month, on the front page of the Washington Post, the paper proclaimed the “Anti-Bush cries are growing louder.” Can you hear them? I can and they are thunderous, stronger and more powerful than ever! America now demands justice. Americans demand the return of their stolen civil liberties, accountability for your Constitutional abuses and insists on your impeachment and removal from office. No, Mr. Bush, you have abused this battered lady, that we call “America”, one too many times. You are not the “Decider”, “We the People” are, and we have assuredly decided it is time for you to go!

Most mainstream people are totally unaware that the below the radar New Age/crystal gazing/channeled information/”wu-wu” circuit or whatever you want to call it has come of political age. There’s a plethora of “New Age” web sites and channelers reporting that America and the world is getting a lot of “off world” help from other dimensions in removing the Bush Cabal, who are simply described as the "Dark" forces. One of them predicts that the Bush Cabal will be gone by the end of the summer.

I am over 60 and came of age during the civil rights and anti-war movements and can remember the tools of the demonstrations, marches, political chants. And then came the Reagan/Thatcher years, the 80’s & early 90’s, when corporatist capitalism made a deliberate move to redistribute income upwards. There were and still are economic reasons for that choice under the pressures of late stage monopoly capitalism or corporate socialism. It isn’t all pure greed. And in the 80’s New Age philosophy was initially focused on inward, individual healing with some focus on healing the earth.

But what is happening now is the energies of the political actions of the 60’s and the New Age spiritual activity of the 80’s have combined politically left & activist. The web sites are an interesting mix of reminding people to vote, support Cindy Sheehan, meditate for peace and participate in global action/meditations like the “Breakthrough Celebration”.

Here’s an interesting link for a New Age web site and article which includes a 1996 study of the break down of religion in the U.S. I have excerpted some highlights.

Quoting John Naisbitt:
**In turbulent times, in times of great change, people head for the two extremes: fundamentalism and personal, spiritual experience...**
J. Naisbitt & P. Aburdene, “Megatrends 2000", 1990

Look at this lineup of religious beliefs in the United States published in 1996.

**The group of surveys cited above classifies religious beliefs into 7 faith groups. Starting with the largest, they are:

1, Cultural (Christmas & Easter) Christianity
2. Conventional Christianity
3. New Age Practitioner
4. Biblical (Fundamentalist, Evangelical) Christianity
5. Atheist/Agnostic
6. Other
7. Jewish

A longitudinal study from 1991 to 1995 shows that New Agers represent a steady 20% of the population, and are consistently the third largest religious group.**
George Barnia, "The Index of Leading Spiritual Indicators", 1996

Now this study was published 10 years ago and since then 2 significant shifts have occurred:

(1) The Internet came on line in 1992 and really expanded exponentially in the last 10 years. Before that, New Age spirituality was mainly a loose connection of metaphysical book stores, some magazines, crystal & candle shops. The “church” has moved onto the Internet.

(2) The toxic Neo-Con combination of messianic evangelical Christian fundamentalism, Jewish Israel Firsters and Halliburton/Enron corporatism have crashed under the pressures of exposed lies, rampant criminality, greed and Iraq.

It would be interesting to know what the current lineup is.

I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite
interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before
the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day
after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you
remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all
answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name
one point in the debate, a speech by a Senator or where their senator
stood", nada.

Almost no one noticed any aspect of the most important debate in the
last 50 years?

And interesting and odd fact. No one has done a story on what the real
impact of the shootings were. It was to virtually eliminate the war
debate from the media.

The special forces background of the senior member of the pair also
seems to get short shrift.

Smells a little fishy to me based on what little I know about it. At
minimum its a very significant part of the story, i.e. that a common
murderer had such an impact on our political process. Why is nobody
covering this obvious fact?

Former President Eisenhower gave warning to the American public to keep an eye on the war profiteers.
He knew future citizens would eventually evolve into a money making mass of death, essentially stating that "the military complex must not become too powerful."

Impeachment? Not going to happen even if the spineless Dems win. Dissent? They already crushed it by forcing Amazon and B&N to stop selling "America Deceived" by E.A. Blayre III. Justice? Good Luck on that one. For dissent, here's the last link before Google Books pulls it from the shelves:

There has been talk for impeachment for quite a while now, but honestly I don't think Congress will have the courage to start procedures although it seems to me quite a lot of Americans are thoroughly fed up by all those lies and miseries thereof. It's much worse then Nixon's burglaries and Clinton's plays. Nobody looks up upon America these days.
