Law Breaker-in-Chief

George W Bush at the White House on 28 February 2008
Mr Bush said the passing of the law was an urgent priority

President George W Bush has urged the "urgent" passing of a bill that would retroactively shield telecoms firms which helped the government eavesdrop.

He called on the House of Representatives to approve the law, already passed by the Senate.

An initial act, allowing warrantless tapping of phone calls and e-mails of suspected terrorists, expired on 17 February but did not grant immunity.

Lawsuits have been filed against some of the firms which took part.

They are accused of violation of privacy.

He told the White House on Tuesday "abusive" lawsuits against telecoms firms would "aid our enemies" by teaching them how to duck surveillance.

'Dangerous intelligence gap'

The House of Representatives allowed the law to expire this month after refusing to rubber stamp a Senate bill that would give telecommunication firms immunity from lawsuits.

The legislation allowed government spying on foreign telephone calls and electronic correspondence without court permission.

"The law expired, the threat to America has not expired," Mr Bush said.

Mr Bush told the White House on Tuesday "a dangerous intelligence gap" had opened up last year before the temporary Protect America Act was passed in August.

"Allowing these lawsuits to proceed would be unfair," he said. "If any of these companies helped us, they did so after being told by our government that their assistance was legal and vital to our national security.

"Allowing the lawsuits to proceed could aid our enemies, because the litigation process could lead to the disclosure of information of how we conduct surveillance and it would give al-Qaeda and others a roadmap as to how to avoid the surveillance."

He warned firms would refuse to co-operate with the intelligence services if they were not granted immunity from lawsuits.

In a wide-ranging speech Mr Bush also:

  • called on Turkey to "move quickly" and "get out" of Iraq, following its military incursion - now in its sixth day - over the border to flush out Kurdish rebel bases
  • said his political opponents kept making the "same old call for withdrawal" of US troops from Iraq, refusing to acknowledge any security gains over the last year
  • said the forthcoming Beijing Olympics would not stop him expressing "deep concerns" about issues such as religious freedom with the Chinese leadership
  • insisted the US was not heading for a recession and rejected, for now, calls for any extra economic stimulus efforts.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:

Section 1. (NEW) (Effective October 1, 2008) (a) The Connecticut Police Chiefs Association shall appoint five regional intelligence liaison officers to serve as a liaison between said department and the local intelligence liaison officers appointed in accordance with subsection (b) of this section and to facilitate the sharing of criminal and terrorism-related intelligence. Each such regional officer shall serve a region of the state designated by the Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security. Any regional intelligence liaison officer appointed before October 1, 2008, shall serve the remainder of his or her appointed term. Regional intelligence liaison officers shall serve a term of not less than two years. If at any time there should be less than five such officers, the Connecticut Police Chiefs Association shall appoint a replacement.

(b) Each municipal police chief shall appoint an intelligence liaison officer to relay intelligence and information to the regional intelligence liaison officer appointed for the region encompassing such municipality. If such municipality does not have a police chief, the Division of State Police within the Department of Public Safety shall make the appointment. If such municipality has a population of more than one hundred thousand, the appointing authority shall appoint two intelligence liaison officers. Any intelligence liaison officer appointed before October 1, 2008, shall serve the remainder of his or her appointed term. If at any time the position of intelligence liaison officer becomes vacant, the position shall be filled in the same manner as the original appointment. Local intelligence liaison officers shall serve a term of not less than two years. For the purposes of this subsection, "population" means the number of municipal residents according to the most recent version of the Connecticut Register and Manual.

I believe their issue is elder abuse. Imagine having an elderly parent drive through Connecticut. The parent gets sick, goes to the hospital, and Connecticut Lawyers and Judges conspire to commit the parent to a mental hospital, drug her or him up, and appoint a lawyer to "act in the best interest" of your parent. Then the lawyers split the "booty" of cash and assets, denying the adult children their inheritance and in having any quality with an ailing/dying parent.

If Official Connecticut treats elders like this, breaks up families, and imprisons as many citizens as possible for Federal Tax Dollar Profits and committing fraud, imagine what else they are capable of.

Check the comments section of [this post] for what I am talking about.

The Math catches up

Will there be a time that the Statue of Liberty should face the other direction?

Sooner or later, the math catches up.

Many Americans say they live in the greatest country in the world.

Math might prove them wrong.

Where is the dollar as compared to other currencies? What is the trend?

Are some Americans considering other countries to make more money, have a better quality of life, and bringing up children in an intact family?

If lawyers can legislate money in their pockets, they will. They have the power, and a monopoly on money in the US. How much do you have in cash and assets? Well, if you get a divorce, a lawyer expects to take as much of it as possible by any mean necessary.

Judicial misconduct is why the economy in America is tanking and why there was a ground war in Iraq. If the courts are fixed, everything else is, also.

We live in modern times. There is no real way to overthrow a modern super power by force. There is only voting with your back. If citizens are willing to leave the US in numbers, if there isn't improvements, that might be the only force against a possible overwhelming tide.

Demand what our forefathers promised. If there isn't delivery, vote with your back, and don't look back.

Criminal Judicial Misconduct

When Judge Gerald P. Garson was confronted with evidence of his improper conduct with a lawyer to predetermine the outcome of cases that were brought before him, his attorney successfully argued at trial that he had merely violated the Rules of Judicial Conduct, for which there was no criminal penalty. However, in an important precedent-setting decision, the New York State Court of Appeals overturned the lower court's judgment and held that Judge Garson could be criminally prosecuted for actions that grew from those violations. The media should be credited for bringing the judge's corrupt behavior to the attention of the public as it was a major part of the story, "Chamber of Secrets," that was hosted on the CBS program 48 Hours on February 19, 2005 by Lesley Stahl and on June 2, 2005 by Charlie Rose. CBS News has also provided a transcript as well as video clips (2 to 4 min) in wmv format: 1) Catching a Judge, 2) Case Fixing, and 3) The Pay Off. The final chapter, when completed, should put judges on notice that the public will not tolerate the corrupting practices that unconditional immunity encourages. Investigations by the media are crucial to the exposure of judicial corruption.

Where was Fantasy Island's "Tattoo" on 9-11?

All of King George's flunkies could have been woken up by a lone "Tattoo".

But, then again, there would have to be some very well co-ordinated plan to have such a grand slam of fuck ups.

What I have seen go on in America since 9-11 is more ridiculous than the "B" television series, "Fantasy Island".

It would be comical if it weren't so damn appalling.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Oligarchy (Greek Ὀλιγαρχία, Oligarkhía) is a form of government where political power effectively rests with a small elite segment of society (whether distinguished by wealth, family or military powers). The word oligarchy is from the Greek words for "few" (ὀλίγον óligon) and "rule" (ἄρχω arkho). Compare with autocracy (rule by one person) and democracy (rule by the majority).

Oligarchy, aristocracy, and plutocracy

Historically, many oligarchies openly gave the political power to a minority group, sometimes arguing that this was an aristocracy ("organization by the 'best' and the 'brightest'"). Such states were often controlled by powerful families whose children were raised and mentored to be heirs of the power of the oligarchy. However, this power may also not be exercised openly, the oligarchs preferring to remain "the power behind the throne", exerting control through economic means. Although Aristotle pioneered the use of the term as a synonym for rule by the rich, for which the exact term is plutocracy, oligarchy is not always a rule by wealth, as oligarchs can simply be a privileged group.

What recourse?

What "checks and balances"?

If the courts are fixed by insiders, and if police aren't required to actually protect and serve while police misconduct is covered up, what are citizens to do when they want it cleaned up?

Should citizens just be arrested and imprisoned for wanting honesty in government?

Donald Eugene Siegelman

Donald Eugene "Don" Siegelman (born February 24, 1946) is an American Democratic politician. He was the governor of Alabama from 1999 to 2003. Don Siegelman is the only person in the history of Alabama to be elected to serve in all four of the top statewide elected offices: Secretary of State, Attorney General, Lieutenant Governor and Governor. He served in Alabama politics for 26 years, winning his first election for the governorship with 57% of the vote, including over 90% of the African-American electorate.

He was defeated for reelection in November 2002 by Representative Bob Riley by the narrowest margin in Alabama history: approximately 3,000 votes. The margin was controversial, as a voting machine malfunction in a single county produced the votes needed to give Riley the election. The recount, however, of that county's votes was affirmed by the state's Attorney General.

In 2006, a Federal jury convicted Siegelman on corruption charges, and he was sentenced to seven years in prison. He is currently in the satellite camp of The Federal Detention Center in Oakdale, Louisiana. [1]

In America, there are probably going to be more and more political prisoners. Ordinary citizens, politicians ... anybody, now in America can be a target of malicious investigations, false arrests, and false imprisonment, just based on testing Free Speech, being politically active, or going to elected officials asking that police and the courts be cleaned up and act ethically.

A Democrat Governor in Alabama was taken down in "Republican country" because he was not a Republican. That is dirty. A partial CBS 60 Minutes piece.

Frank Lucas (born September 9, 1930 in La Grange, North Carolina) and raised in Goldsboro, North Carolina.[1] is a former heroin dealer, murderer, and organized crime boss in Harlem during the late 1960s and early 1970s. He was particularly known for cutting out middlemen in the drug trade and buying heroin directly from his source in Southeast Asia. Frank Lucas is popularly known for smuggling heroin from Vietnam[2] using the coffins of dead American servicemen, [3] a claim his South Asian supplier, Leslie "Ike" Atkinson denies. [4]

American Gangster (film)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

American Gangster is an Academy Award nominated 2007 crime film written by Steve Zaillian and directed by Ridley Scott. The movie stars Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe. Washington portrays Frank Lucas, a real-life kingpin from Harlem who smuggled heroin into the US on American service planes returning from the Vietnam War. Crowe portrays Richie Roberts, a detective attempting to bring down Lucas' drug empire.[2] Filming was done on location in New York City. American Gangster was released in the United States and Canada on November 2, 2007.

Robert J. Hebert, 33, of Terryville, was free on bonds totaling $252,500 when city police arrested him Saturday night at the Lovers Lane home of Dawn Kiesel on a breach of peace charge. City police obtained a warrant for Hebert’s arrest following a reported incident Jan. 24 at 28 East Elm St., a Walgreens pharmacy directly across the street from police headquarters.

Details of that incident were not available Sunday, though police said it was not related to domestic violence. A manager at the Walgreens said Sunday he had no record or recollection of any incident involving a man of Hebert’s age during that period.

Hebert was freed on $1,000 surety bond following Saturday’s arrest, pending a Feb. 28 appearance in Waterbury Superior Court.

Hebert also faces charges stemming from an altercation with Kiesel on Jan. 25. He was previously charged with carrying a dangerous weapon, second-degree reckless endangerment, and breach of peace stemming from threats police said he made against his wife in November.

RFID chips

US - Electronic monitoring of motorists will soon expand dramatically as states including Arizona, Michigan, Vermont and Washington begin to use radio frequency identification (RFID) chips in drivers’ licenses. These electronic chips broadcast the identity of any card holder to any chip-reading sensor within a minimum of thirty feet. The US Department of Homeland Security is promoting the tracking projects as part of its Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative.

“Multiple cards can be read at a distance and simultaneously with vicinity RFID technology, allowing an entire car full of people to be processed at once,” a DHS fact sheet on the Passport Card technology explained. [more]

President Bush, Democrats Trade Barbs on Stalled Wiretap Law

By Holly Rosenkrantz and Bob Willis

Feb. 16 (Bloomberg) -- President George W. Bush chastised Congress for refusing to pass wiretapping legislation, saying it had made Americans more vulnerable to terrorists, while a Democratic lawmaker accused him of ``political gamesmanship.''

``At this moment, somewhere in the world, terrorists are planning a new attack on America,'' Bush said today in his weekly radio address. ``Because Congress failed to act, it will be harder for our government to keep you safe from terrorist attack.''

The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives has balked at passing a Bush-backed bill that would give telecommunications companies such as AT&T Inc. protection from privacy lawsuits for helping the Administration conduct wiretapping without warrants. Bush has threatened to veto a temporary extension of legislation that expires today, demanding the House adopt the Senate version of the bill.

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, a Democrat from Rhode Island, said in his party's weekly radio address that Bush and the Republicans should work together with the Democrats to reach a compromise on the bill.

``Negotiations should take place immediately,'' he said. ``We know this president dislikes compromise, but this time he has taken his stubborn approach too far.''

House Democratic leaders argue that surveillance of suspected terrorists can still take place under existing wiretapping legislation, which requires court warrants.

``My administration will take every step within our power to minimize the damage caused'' because Congress didn't pass the bill, Bush said today. Leaders in the Democratic-controlled Congress ``chose politics over protecting the country,'' Bush said.

`Political Gamesmanship'

Whitehouse said it was Bush who ``chose political gamesmanship'' and, ``instead of working with Congress in a calm, constructive way, the president, unfortunately, has chosen to manufacture a sudden and unnecessary confrontation.''

The Senate-passed eavesdropping measure -- unlike the earlier House-passed bill -- gives telecommunications companies protection from privacy lawsuits. Companies face almost 40 lawsuits seeking billions of dollars in damages.

House Democratic leaders yesterday said they were working on a compromise with the Senate that would curtail some Senate- backed immunity provisions for the telecommunications companies.

Bush, in his radio address, said companies will be reluctant to cooperate with intelligence agencies ``because of their uncertainty about the law and fear of being sued by class- action trial lawyers.''

Some House Democrats say the law that Bush wants renewed goes beyond what the country needs to protect its citizens. Bush should help the Democrats ``make sure that privacy protections for Americans aren't left in the dust,'' Whitehouse said.

Bush had urged Congress to pass a law this week before its President's Day recess. The House reconvenes on Feb. 25.

Will this come up to haunt Barack Obama?

Keeping the US Constitution from becoming null and void is an important issue.


Illinois resident Hale DeMar was prosecuted by the town of Wilmette for using a handgun in his home to defend his family in 2003. Because Wilmette had imposed a ban on the possession of handguns, several Illinois state legislators introduced SB 2165 to protect the right of self-defense for residents like DeMar.

True to form, Obama voted against the pro-gun legislation.5

It is very telling that Obama moved further to the left than most of the liberal legislators in his state. The self-defense bill protecting gun owners like DeMar passed the state senate 41-16 and was later enacted into law over the governor's veto (and over Obama's opposition).

The concealed carry of firearms is another important issue for gun owners, and yet Obama is not only opposed to citizens carrying guns, he supports using federal laws to override those states which currently allow the practice.

In 2004, Obama said he supports a national ban on concealed carry because the states that allow it are "threatening the safety of Illinois residents."6 Never mind the fact that concealed carry laws have improved the safety of citizens in the states that have enacted such laws.7

I shot Obama Barack live Feb. 4, 2008, at the Hartford, Connecticut, XL Center [video]

I personally like Barack Obama. He has a lot of personality and can move people. I watched him in action. He would, in my opinion, really be an unstoppable candidate if he came out for cleaning up the courts, making them fair and accessible for all, and had a stance where women that fear being raped, or any other citizen without felonies or history of mental illness, may possess firearms and also obtain a permit to carry concealed weapons.

I was down in Mississippi and New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina hit. I know that police can't always be there, and aren't always willing to protect and serve. Being American means being able to defend oneself on one's own property, or anywhere, if attacked.

Something Connecticut authorities just don't seem to get. [my take]

John McCain

P.J. Snyder is a Connecticut property owner that fled to Arizona to avoid more persecution from Connecticut authorities. Self-described "more important" people wanted to buy or take Ms. Snyder's property and did not want to have to pay fair market price. The courts and police in Connecticut are glad to "fix" a citizen so they lose their business or property when someone "more important" either is business competition or wants properties and businesses at a bargain basement price.

Snyder fled to Arizona and Connecticut authorities were out to further retaliate against her for speaking out about being abused and ripped off, so the Connecticut authorities set out to have her arrested in Arizona.

McCain allegedly personally stepped in to keep Connecticut authorities from having their way. I admire McCain for stepping up and doing what is right.

Olbermann: Bush 'panoramic invasion of privacy' is terrorism

David Edwards and John Byrne
Published: Friday February 15, 2008

| StumbleUpon

Print This Email This

In a scathing commentary against President George W. Bush, MSNBC commentator Keith Olbermann declared Bush guilty of terrorism for playing what he sees as the fear card in an attempt to get the House to pass retroactive immunity for telecommunication companies that illegally helped the US government in its warrantless wiretapping program Thursday evening.

"You are a liar, Mr. Bush, and after showing some skill at it, you have ceased to even be a very good liar," he declared.

"The lot of you," he said, speaking of those who sought to pass immunity, "are the symbolic descendants of the despotic middle managers of some banana republic, to whom 'Freedom' is an ironic brand name, a word you reach for, when you want to get away with its opposite."

Mocking the president, he said that Bush is predicting "plagues of locusts and stuff" should the House fail to reauthorize his warrantless eavesdropping program.

The Senate passed immunity for the telecommunications' companies participation in the program earlier this week by 68-29 -- they are facing myriad lawsuits -- though the House appears less likely to support the provision and has stalled on reauthorizing the bill. The bill had been reauthorized under a temporary basis.

Olbermann called Bush a "liar" several times during his broadcast.

He also called Bush a 'fascist.'

"If you believe in the seamless mutuality of government and big business — come out and say it!" he said. "There is a dictionary definition, one word that describes that toxic blend. You’re a fascist — get them to print you a t-shirt with “fascist” on it! What else is this but fascism?"

"It is bad enough, sir, that you were demanding an Ex Post Facto law, which could still clear the AT&Ts and the Verizons from responsibility for their systematic, aggressive, and blatant collaboration with your illegal and unjustified spying on Americans under this flimsy guise of looking for any terrorists who are stupid enough to make a collect call or send a mass e-mail," he added.

Speaking of AT&T whistleblower Mark Klein, who alleged secret call centers where the firm funneled data to the National Security Agency, he noted Klein's declaration of Bush as "Big Brother."

"And if there’s one thing we know about Big Brother, Mr. Bush, is that he is — you are — a liar," Olbermann averred.

Later, he added, "You are a liar, Mr. Bush, and after showing some skill at it, you have ceased to even be a very good liar."

Olbermann noted that President Bush has promised to veto any bill that did not include telecom immunity. He asserted that Bush was siding with "terrorists" if he vetoed his own bill.

"You would not merely be guilty of siding with the terrorists," he said. "You would not merely be guilty of prioritizing the telecoms over the people… You would not merely be guilty of treason, sir… You would be personally, and eternally, responsible."

He concluded by accusing Bush of being a terrorist himself, in his alleged fealty to violating civil liberties under the guise of protecting Americans from terrorist attacks.

"We will not fear the recognition of the manipulation of our yearning for safety — we will call it what it is: terrorism," the MSNBC host said.

Dennis Kucinich and Ken Krayeske

The Congressman discusses the excesses of Homeland Security with the journalist who was arrested for taking a photo of the Governor, M Jodi Rell.

Kenneth Krayeske is far from a terrorist, but was put on the Connecticut State Police secret "Enemies List" and treated like one.

On the "Secret Enemies" List video [click here]

Should Police use Homeland Security Funds to target citizens for personal reasons, if citizens try to redress grievances to elected officials, test Free Speech, want to sue police for violating civil rights, or are on the Connecticut State Police secret "Enemies List". If you make a police misconduct complaint in Connecticut or in other states you might find yourself arrested as a target of police retaliation.

Police think they have the rights to break any law they please protected by corrupt courts and the Patriot Act.

Should police be able to enlist citizens to break laws for them, do dirty work, have "buffers", and to terrorize citizens?:

Peter Coukos of Stafford Springs, Connecticut, born on or around 1955 took a sexual interest in my then 14 year old daughter and her friend.

The clip above is the audio from a threat Coukos left on my voicemail, one of about 40 I provided Stafford Resident Trooper Mulcahey of the Connecticut State Police, Troop C, along with Constable Frank Prochaska. Coukos threatened me with death, he threatened my daughter with death, and he demanded that I pay him $30,000 cash for him not to make a false complaint that I had threatened him with a gun.

I gave information to Trooper Mulcahey including the 40 or so threats on tape.

Mulcahey told me that I was kicked out of Connecticut and that if I lodged a complaint against Coukos, that I would be arrested.

Soon after the tape was made, Coukos caught me outside my dwelling going to my vehicle, he started punching me in the back, and slapping me in the back of the head, saying that he wanted to have my 14 year old daughter on her knees giving him oral sex. I never turned around fearing I would be arrested by police waiting nearby, like the last time a police informant attacked me on my property, and only I was arrested, for which I was railroaded to prison based on Trooper perjury.

Coukos then broke into my dwelling stole some of my belongings, changed the locks, and denied me access to my home. Police, again, did nothing, and Coukos admission of guilt was to settle with me when I sued him in small claims court over the breaking in and entering, malicious destruction of property, illegally locking me out of my home, terrorizing, threatening, and stalking me, and theft of my property, claims.

He kept physically assaulting me, calling me a "pussy" trying to get me to fight back.

Trooper Mulcahey and Stafford Officer Prochaska allegedly offered Coukos help in getting a pistol permit if he would assault me, terrorize me and my daughter out of Connecticut, and to continue to make my daughter's and my life a living hell.

Should police be able to kick citizens out of a state if they lodge police misconduct complaints or for writing things in newspapers that police don't like, how about proposing laws to elected officials that police don't like?

Hillary Clinton and George W. Bush might share a same corrupt judge and sleazy tactic. If you appoint corrupt judges you and your friends can "back door borrow" billions. Citizens that try to expose their dirty little secret find themselves railroaded to prison.

Breaking up Marriages as a Policy benefits Lawyers

Possibly 2/3 of Connecticut's elected legislators are lawyers. So, do you think they are in your corner as a constituent, or theirs, for lawyers?

[click here] for complete footage of John Dibiase Jr., of the Meriden, Connecticut, Divorced Men's Center.

Connecticut Non-Custodial Parents Rights is a national issue in the US. John Dibiase Jr. runs a Divorced Men's Center in Meriden, Connecticut. He provides services to non-custodial parents that Connecticut does not.

The custodial parent might have an incentive to initiate divorce to get the house, sole possession of the kids, and to lock the majority of the finances.

The custodial parent often gets the best treatment in court, motions are heard, court dates are made for their convenience, and many there is little accountability to be accurate with financial and other information as compared to the non-custodial parent.

Lawyers make out like bandits in divorce cases.

The non-custodial parent has to fear alienation from his or her kids, financial ruin, and even loss of jobs, arrests, and prison.

The custodial parent doesn't usually fear even contempt of court filings for not showing up or to abiding by any agreements made by the court for the custodial and non-custodial parents as ordered by the court.

Is this supposed breed respect for the courts?

Does this foster faith in government?

Does this improve the economy and the quality of life for Americans?

No, it doesn't, but is does for attorneys.

Movie Review

I give "The Lives of Others", 5 stars out of five ...

The story takes place in the Soviet held portion of Germany behind the wall in the mid 1980's. It paints a dark picture of what it is like to live under surveillance by a secret police, always lurking, always wanting to know everything. Yet, the human side comes out, and the movie has a point.

Their wall fell, ours is being built around us. All Americans should view this movie to see where others have been and where we might be headed.

Police in the US, think they can take away a citizen's mate, ruin individuals and families at will, and can coerce sex and illegal acts out of citizens, so the citizen may avoid the retaliation and wrath of corrupt police. [example, a video of a typical US police informant under oath]

[view clip, click]

The Lives of Others (original German: Das Leben der Anderen) is an Academy Award-winning German film, marking the feature film debut of writer and director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck.

With The Lives of Others Donnersmarck won the 2006 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. The film had earlier won seven Deutscher Filmpreis awards including best film, best director, best screenplay, best actor and best supporting actor, after having set a new record with 11 nominations. It was also nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 64th Golden Globe Awards.

The Ministerium für Staatssicherheit (Ministry for State Security), commonly known as the Stasi (abbreviation German: Staatssicherheit, literally State Security), was the official secret police of East Germany. The Stasi was headquartered in East Berlin, with an extensive complex in Berlin-Lichtenberg and several smaller facilities throughout the city. It was widely regarded as one of the most effective – and repressive – intelligence and secret police agencies in the world. The Stasi's motto was "Schild und Schwert der Partei" (Shield and Sword of the Party), showing its connections to the Socialist Unity Party of Germany (SED), the equivalent to the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. Another term used in earlier years to refer to the Stasi was Staatssicherheitsdienst (State Security Service or SSD).

Text with video:
Mike Gravel, the only 2008 presidential candidate speaking hard truths to the corrupt power structure, was excluded from the Oct. 30th NBC debate. At the prior debate he had exposed the media queen Hillary Clinton for her voting for the Lieberman-Kyl amendment which set the framework for an attack on Iran. This was not the first time he's been shut out. He was earlier excluded from the AFL-CIO debates by the corrupt union leaders that abandoned this country decades ago. His loudly voiced views on corporate power and government corruption have made him almost a lone voice speaking the truth in politics.

Emailed to me:

Our Constitution is under threat and the most basic principle of checks and balances is being undermined. Not since Watergate has a president so openly disregarded the will of Congress.

During hearings in the Judiciary Committee yesterday, I told Attorney General Michael Mukasey that I called for impeachment hearings because of the stonewalling and blatant abuses of the Bush Administration. He responded by stating that he will NOT enforce a contempt of Congress citation against Harriet Miers and White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten for refusing to testify before Congress. The video is here:

Alberto Gonzales may be long gone, but the Bush Administration continues its executive overreach with the new Attorney General.

We can debate the need for Impeachment hearings. We can argue its effects on the election or our agenda. But one thing is abundantly clear:

If Congress' right to require testimony is undermined, then our country's leaders - Democrat, Republican, or Independent - will be immune from accountability.

The power of the subpoena - to call officials before us - is one of the most fundamental safeguards in our system of government. To have it effectively discarded - by virtue of the President instructing Administration officials to ignore a congressional subpoenas and not even appear before Congress - is unprecedented. The idea that the Attorney General would willingly defend this position - despite Congress' constitutional right to call such witnesses, is outrageous.

Impeachment hearings could render this moot: The President, Vice President, and all officials under them would no longer invoke executive privilege. There would be no more smokescreens.

In one week, I will be delivering my letter calling for impeachment hearings to Chairman John Conyers. Already, 16 Members of Congress have joined my call, including 3 Judiciary Committee members. I am hopeful for more in the coming days, but it is important for you to reach out to your representative in Congress to express how you feel. You can view the current list of signers, here:

I do not know how Congress will react, but I do know this: I will pursue this course aggressively. I will not compromise away the constitutional role of Congress. Your support is invaluable. Please know that I am working everyday to ensure that the Bush Administration is held accountable.

Please continue to support this movement at

Yours truly,

Congressman Robert Wexler
