Who's Worse, Clinton or Paul?

By David Swanson

Let's assume, just for the sake of masochism or preparedness, that the Republicans nominate McCain or somebody similar, that the Democrats nominate Clinton, and that Paul runs as an independent or libertarian. Here's a question for those who care about peace and justice: Who's worse, Clinton or Paul?

Nadler Is Blocking Impeachment

By David Swanson

A private off-the-record meeting was held on Capitol Hill on Wednesday that included House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, Subcommittee on the Constitution Chairman Jerrold Nadler, Judiciary Committee Member and advocate for opening Cheney impeachment hearings Robert Wexler, and several other committee members, activists, staffers, and former staffers from the Watergate days. I wasn't there, so I'm free to talk about what happened.

Wexler Meets With Conyers, Still Wants Cheney Impeachment Hearings

Kucinich to Introduce Bush Articles of Impeachment
By David Swanson

I interviewed Congressman Robert Wexler today (listen here: http://www.thepeoplespeakradio.net ), and he said that he had attended a meeting earlier today that included Congressman John Conyers and addressed the topics of contempt and impeachment. There was wide consensus, he said, that contempt should be pursued (for Harriet Miers and Josh Bolten). Wexler supports that effort, he said, but will continue to push for Cheney impeachment hearings (sign petition at http://wexlerwantshearings.com ).

Screening of "No End in Sight" Plus Remarks by Ann Wright and David Swanson

Progressive Democracy South Jersey

WHERE: Unitarian Church of Cherry Hill, N.J.
401 North Kings Highway
Cherry Hill, NJ 08034
http://www.uucinch.org

“No End in Sight” examines the manner in which the principal errors of U.S. policy - insufficient troop levels, allowing the looting of Baghdad, purging professionals from the Iraqi government, and the disbanding of the Iraqi military - largely created the chaos that engulfs Iraq today.

After the film, Ann Wright and David Swanson will offer their unique perspectives on the misdeeds of the Bush Administration. Wright is a retired U.S. Army colonel, retired official of the U.S. State Department, and now anti-war activist. She is most noted for being one of three U.S. State Department officials to publicly resign in direct protest of the invasion of Iraq in March, 2003. David Swanson is creator of ImpeachCheney.org, Co-Founder of AfterDowningStreet.org, and Washington Director of Democrats.com.
