The latest Democrat "saviour"
to flip flop 180 degrees in light of their victory is Rep.
John Conyers, D-Mich. Presumed to become chairman
of the House Judiciary Committee in January, Conyers today said
that impeachment of President Bush "is off the table."
"In this campaign, there was an orchestrated
right-wing effort to distort my position on impeachment,"
Conyers said in a statement released by his Judiciary Committee
spokesman. "The incoming speaker (Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.)
has said that impeachment is off the table. I am in total agreement
with her on this issue: Impeachment is off the table."
Conyers seems to have forgotten that last
December he laid out the grounds for impeachment in a 350 page
long report called "The
Constitution in Crisis: The Downing Street Minutes
and Deception, Manipulation, Torture, Retribution and Cover-ups
in the Iraq War" and later updated to add "illegal domestic
For a while Conyers was the darling of left
leaning bloggers and readers everywhere:
At this site, we are especially proud
of the new Conyers Report, "The Constitution in Crisis."
By purchasing this book, you have the opportunity to own a part
of history and help the Congressman hold the Bush Administration
accountable. Your assistance in helping Congressman Conyers become
the next Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee will bring
us one step closer to getting the American people the answers
from this Administration that they deserve.
Conyers is so admirable. One of the
very few in Congress who still has integrity and principles. It
is too bad that he does not get more MSM coverage but why would
they do that? He might upset the Republican and Corporate plans
for total control and could expose their nefarious doings.
He is risking much by not following the official DNC program too,
in addition to challenging the Bushies.
In december 2005, upon release of the report,
The Report concludes that a number of
these actions amount to prima facie evidence (evidence sufficiently
strong to presume the allegations are true) that federal criminal
laws have been violated. Legal violations span from false statements
to Congress to whistleblower laws... The Report also concludes
that these charges clearly rise to the level of impeachable conduct...
In response to the Report, I have already taken a number of actions.
First, I have 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 and report
on possible impeachable offenses.
So Conyers was already underway with setting
up investigations into impeachable offences, but now he says that
impeachment is off the table? Clearly he has been given orders
to toe the party line or face the consequences.
Despite the fact that 86%
want to see the President impeached, leading Democrats
have already ruled this out. The same leading Democrats that voted
for the war in Afghanistan, for the Patriot Act, for Homeland
Security and against a bill that simply condemned torture of prisoners

Pelosi and Howard
Dean, Conyers is the latest Democrat to show us their
true colours once in power.
Conyers and the other Democrats highlight
precisely why we need to regroup, consolidate and redouble our
efforts in light of the theatrical shift of power in Washington
to the left. Because as soon as this happened, overnight, the
truth movement lost a great deal of support from those that believe
the job is now done.
Taking note of many reader comments over
the past few days I have noticed a startling uprise in the amount
of negative and dismissive feedback from some readers. Evidently
those who expected us to be out dancing in the streets at the
news of a Democrat landslide in Washington have been bitterly
We have never once suggested that the solution
to a corrupt and fascist Neocon leadership is a passive and capitulating
Democrat sideshow leadership, so why is it any surprise that we
are continuing on the same course as before?
Comments such as the following emphasize
"You can only have it one way.
What the hell is up with you people. The whole time the Bush regime
was in power you begged for change. Now you have it, but your
Yes we are seeking change, but not a simple
change of personnel as we have witnessed this week. As we reported
yesterday "There's no doubt about it, to see frothing Neo-Cons
who have been strutting around like John Wayne for the past five
years finally eat humble pie is a breath of fresh air, but let's
not be so deluded as to think that the Neo-Con agenda, which took
decades to craft, was simply brushed aside by the victory of a
party that has supported Bush every step of the way on major issues."
Seeing Bush on TV admitting he'd took a
hell of a beating was great, for about five minutes, then he started
laughing and joking about it and talking about pushing forward
to work closely with a new crowd.
Is rolling over and going back to sleep
going to get Bush impeached? Should we shut down the websites
now and go save the whales or something else we'd all love to
be doing if we didn't have to relentlessly keep fighting to stop
our leaders killing our freedoms?
Within hours the Democratic elite have shown
us that they don't give a damn about holding the Bush administration
up to scrutiny. With no effective opposition in the form of a
political party it is up to the people to continue to demand justice
and to continue to attempt to reign in those who have heinously
abused their power.
Thomas Jefferson described Congress as "a
body to which the people send one hundred and fifty lawyers, whose
trade it is to question everything and yield nothing."
In light of this how can any representative
say something like impeachment is 'off the table?'
