Sleeping security guards are criminal, Impeachment is off the table

Impeachment is not on table as Democrats have said. Impeachment is also not on TV or Newspapers. Our US congress is on the brink of criminal behavior for not investigating a President and Vice President who have broken the law and led the world deep into an illegal war.

Top story on 14 major newspapers: iPod  ( not the Kucinich Impeachment speech )
Top story on 14 major newspapers: iPod ( not the Kucinich Impeachment speech )
Dennis Kucinich spoke about impeachment in the US House of Representatives on June 9th, 2008. Most newspapers and TV stations continue the silence. Kucinich spoke about illegal wiretaps on Americans, detainment of prisoners without charges for 5 years, lies to start the Iraq war, lies to remain at war, and 31 other reasons to impeach.

434 Members of Congress refuse to dialog with the voters about impeachment, the one tool that would end the war in Iraq. Only one of the top 14 newspapers in the USA had any mention of the June 9th, 2008 impeachment speech by Rep. Dennis Kucinich. What was the top "news" story on 14 newspapers: the new iPod.

It is the sworn duty of the Congress to keep a balance of power and investigate when the President breaks the law. It is the duty of the press to question the President and report when others question the illegal actions of a President. The reporting and civil rights efforts that ended the Vietnam war are shamefully vacant from the present atrocities. Call your local papers and urge them to cover the war and those who question the war. The negligent guardians of our security now join the criminals on the most wanted list.

Henry Waxman is talking impeachment in public. Bill Moyers is talking impeachment on PBS every week. But to actually impeach during an election cycle? Good luck on THAT!

Kucinich action virtually ignored 10.Jun.2008 18:37

The point is that the media are not covering Kucinich's call for an impeachment investigation. Maybe the MSM could not absorb all the facts presented in the 60 page document that supports the 35 articles of impeachment? Maybe reading 60 pages is just too hard when the MSM have gotten used to being just a stenographer for the President's press secretary?
Give the MSM hell for not doing their job!
