David Swanson on Impeachment for 60 Minutes on People Speak Radio LISTEN

 

David Swanson on 'benchmarks,' Mark Potok on Dobbs and leprosy Counterspin (5/18/07-5/24/07) This week on CounterSpin: "benchmarks" is the new key word in the talk about pulling out of Iraq. It seems, according to the New York Times and others, that the best way to end the war is to draw up a To Do list... for Iraqis. Our guest finds something ludicrous in the whole discussion; we'll hear from David Swanson of AfterDowningStreet.org. LISTEN Also on the show: CNN's Lou Dobbs is under fire for alleging that 7,000 cases of Leprosy have been identified in recent years in the U.S. and for implying that immigrants are responsible. We'll be joined by Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center who has been going head to head with the CNN host in recent weeks. LISTEN

Cynthia McKinney who helped draft articles of impeachment legislation. Pete Perry of the Washington Peace Center hosted and moderated.

Elizabeth de la Vega and David Swanson discuss impeachment on Laura Flanders' Radio Nation AUDIO HERE.

_______________

There are those who believe that Bush and Cheney have committed impeachable offenses but that we should not try to impeach them. In this discussion, Bob McAdams lays out the arguments. Then there are those, like myself, who think we need to put everything we've got into impeachment now. Here's my case. Meanwhile, there are a lot of people who see both sides and want to hash it out and mull it over, as in this discussion that followed Bob's and my remarks at a Charlottesville Center for Peace and Justice gathering in a living room in Charlottesville, Va. Others may find this a useful exchange and want to engage in a similar group conversation.

Videos: Interviews of Cindy Sheehan and David Swanson on Next Steps for the AntiWar Movement By Kevin Zeese, Democracy Rising Watch the videos and Read more Here... The Iraq War and occupation is at a key crossroads. The peace movement needs to be focused and take advantage of the opportunities and challenges before us. This is article will be the first in a series reporting on interviews of anti-war activists in order to develop a common agenda, strategy and tactics for the peace movement. This article summarizes interviews with Cindy Sheehan and David Swanson. The anti-war movement has come a long way since its low point – the re-election of President Bush in 2004. Peace voters dominated the electorate in 2006 with the defeat of some leading Iraq War hawks, e.g., Sen. George Allen (VA) and Sen. Rick Santorum (PA) who were formerly talking aåbout running for president. And, the leadership of the Congress changed hands from the Republicans to the Democrats. But now, there is talk of escalation in Iraq and the Democrats have taken the power of the purse – the only way they can end the war – off the table. Watch the videos and Read more Here...

White House Memo on Counterspin Radio According to the February 3rd London Guardian, a memo has emerged revealing that George Bush intended to invade Iraq regardless of UN support or if UN inspectors found banned weapons there. It also shows Tony Blair supported these Bush plans. You might not know about all this because the US press hasn't given it much coverage. We'll talk to David Swanson of AfterDowningStreet.org and Democrats.com about the new memo. Listen: http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=2819

Should President Bush Face Censure or Impeachment? (Recorded January 18, 2006) By the Institute for Policy Studies, http://www.ips-dc.org mp3 (Right click and select Save to disk to download in Windows. Warning- 55 meg file) Listen Now! With Windows Media Player In December Michigan Congressman John Conyers (D) introduced a resolution (H. Res. 635) creating a Select Committee with subpoena authority to investigate the misconduct of the Bush Administration with regard to the Iraq war. Conyers resolution also wants a report on possible impeachable offenses. In addition, Rep. Conyers introduced Resolutions regarding both President Bush (H. Res. 636) and Vice-President Cheney (H. Res. 637) proposing that they be censured by Congress based on "indisputable evidence of unaccounted for misstatements and abuse of power in the public record". Did the Bush Administration commit crimes that warrant a congressional censure when it ordered surveillance of American citizens without a court warrant? Have the Administration's actions over the past three years in the handling of the war in Iraq and the war on terrorism presented a case for censure or impeachment?
