Towards a Definitive Bushco Scandal List: Help!

It is the heart of any call for investigations or impeachment. It is intended to bring the ire of every person reading to the forefront and spur them to action. It is intended to refresh the memory and to sharpen the focus. It is intended to never let the crimes die…or the criminals rest…

It is The List.

Impeachment/Investigation essays are emotional to some people, they react to the meme or the ‘current political reality’ and not to the larger reality of what has occurred over the last seven years. The List is a reminder to FUCK the current political reality and push for justice and principle.  

Many people have made many lists, as I say it is at the heart of advocating for justice for Bushco. So instead of using time to come up with a new list for every essay, I would like to see us compile a nifty Cut N’ Paste Bushco Scandal List. The top ten(?) scandals should do it, perhaps with a short blurb…and definitely with a link to a story from a major news outlet about that scandal. And of course we want the most devastating link possible and the most damaging blurb possible.

At what amounts to the eleventh hour politically, it seems that impeachment is gaining some traction. Certainly the recent torture revelations are a pretty darn clear path to impeachment, but there are so many others! So if you are into it, pitch in!

Here is a good reminder and primer for your thoughts…Scandalistâ„¢ by rickpickett

Take your time, dig in, and let’s see what we can come up with! We can post it on the Dharmapedia for easy access and whenever you go to write about demanding FULL INVESTIGATIONS NOW!!! or IMPEACH!!! You can just C&P in to your essay with no muss and no fuss!

Bonus Fun!!! Post all your best impeach graphics and links! Let’s make this thread an Impeach resource center. I will tag it Impeach List, so we can all access it that way in the future as well as through the Dharmapedia

    in all, an almost incomprehensible accounting of misdeeds, greed, and criminality all out in the open and accelerating with each day…

    it’s easier to understand the chaos of the universe…

    not really, yet in some way i mean it

  3. What a parade of horrors. There are so many bad, evil, corrupt, illegal, incompetent items on the list that no one person can retain all of them without a list.

    Can we impeach them now? Please.

    Q. Why should Bush and Cheney be impeached?

    A. Because they lied about the threat posed by Iraq in 2002 to launch an illegal and disastrous invasion of Iraq.

    Q. What lies did they tell?

    A. They claimed Iraq definitely had biological and chemical weapons, as well as an active nuclear weapons program, all of which Iraq had destroyed in 1991 after Gulf War I, just as Saddam’s son-in-law, Hussein Kamel, told us after he defected in 1995. They also claimed Iraq had ties to Al Qaeda and 9/11 – which was false, and the Bush administration knew it.

    Q. Did Bush and Cheney knowingly lie, or were they misled by bad intelligence from the CIA?

    A. They lied. Bush and Cheney decided to use the attack by Al Qaeda as justification for an invasion of Iraq, even though they knew Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.

    Q. Didn’t a majority in Congress support the invasion of Iraq?

    A. Yes, but mostly because they believed the lies from Bush and Cheney. After those lies were exposed, many Republicans and Democrats who voted for the invasion changed their positions and said they would have opposed it if they had been told the truth.

    Q. Is lying an impeachable offense?

    A. The Republican Congress thought so in 1998 when they impeached Bill Clinton.

    Q. Wasn’t Clinton impeached for lying to a Grand Jury?

    A. Yes. But George Bush lied to Congress in his 2003 State of the Union Address, which is just as serious as lying to a Grand Jury. Bush lied to Congress again on March 18, 2003, when he submitted his official letter declaring war on Iraq.

    We have been reduced to the status of a carnival attraction and international symbol of depraved stupidy.

    the sooner we can get the hearings and impeachment going!

    And remember, any congressperson who doesn’t support this

    effort isn’t worthy of re-election.  So, those who are

    represented by non-impeachment Reps might consider contacting

    them and telling them why they don’t stand a snowball’s chance

    in hell of being re-elected.  

  7. that nails the most important ones pretty well.

    Ten Reasons to Impeach George Bush and Dick Cheney

    I ask Congress to impeach President Bush and Vice President Cheney for the following reasons:

    1. Violating the United Nations Charter by launching an illegal “War of Aggression” against Iraq without cause, using fraud to sell the war to Congress and the public, misusing government funds to begin bombing without Congressional authorization, and subjecting our military personnel to unnecessary harm, debilitating injuries, and deaths.

    2. Violating U.S. and international law by authorizing the torture of thousands of captives, resulting in dozens of deaths, and keeping prisoners hidden from the International Committee of the Red Cross.

    3. Violating the Constitution by arbitrarily detaining Americans, legal residents, and non-Americans, without due process, without charge, and without access to counsel.

    4. Violating the Geneva Conventions by targeting civilians, journalists, hospitals, and ambulances, and using illegal weapons, including white phosphorous, depleted uranium, and a new type of napalm.

    5. Violating U.S. law and the Constitution through widespread wiretapping of the phone calls and emails of Americans without a warrant.

    6. Violating the Constitution by using “signing statements” to defy hundreds of laws passed by Congress.

    7. Violating U.S. and state law by obstructing honest elections in 2000, 2002, 2004, and 2006.

    8. Violating U.S. law by using paid propaganda and disinformation, selectively and misleadingly leaking classified information, and exposing the identity of a covert CIA operative working on sensitive WMD proliferation for political retribution.

    9. Subverting the Constitution and abusing Presidential power by asserting a “Unitary Executive Theory” giving unlimited powers to the President, by obstructing efforts by Congress and the Courts to review and restrict Presidential actions, and by promoting and signing legislation negating the Bill of Rights and the Writ of Habeas Corpus.

    10. Gross negligence in failing to assist New Orleans residents after Hurricane Katrina, in ignoring urgent warnings of an Al Qaeda attack prior to Sept. 11, 2001, and in increasing air pollution causing global warming.
