Impeachment

1. What happens after a blowjob. 2. What doesn't happen after... Well, name it.

They have not the standing to sue, nor the balls to impeach.

Thread: 

Not content to have wrested from their lackeys on the Supreme Court the right to exclude from Medicaid millions of low income citizens of Repugnant governed states, the punks infesting the lower house of congress writhe in continued agony over their impotence. Read below the fold...

Stop the Kabuki: It's About “the Great Betrayal”

MSNBC continues on with its campaign to cast the Tea Party Republicans in the role of principal villains in the imminent Government budget/ government shutdown crisis and the likely coming debt ceiling crisis. The teabots, you see, are using the Republican majority in the House to demand more austerity in government and defunding of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Read below the fold...

A Modest Proposal on Voting Rights

In light of the Supreme Court's decision on the Voting Rights Act, upholding the principle that States must be treated equally under the Constitution when it comes to new voting legislation they enact, but people, in relation to their exercising their voting rights, not so much; there's a real need for proposals to make Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act operative again by re-writing Section 4. Here's a modest proposal. Read below the fold...

Failure to try and impeach a criminal President Bush guaranteed us a lawless President Obama

It's really that simple, explains David Swanson of After Downing Street at the Rutherford Institute recently. Bush and Cheney vastly and unilaterally expanded the powers of the White House. Failing even to try to pursue impeachment and criminal proceedings against the Bush-Cheney guaranteed that his successor would push all those limits even further. Even if we had tried and failed at impeachment, for the rest of Bush's term there would have been some restraint, and some limits defined for this administration too.

U.S. Congress Declares War on Humanitarian Activists (Citizen or Non)

Thread: 

One of the Gazan Flotilla commando-executed activists was American born. His name was Fulkan Dogan. He was a 19 year old high school student who wanted to become a doctor. His photo is here. Didn't he have a sweet face? That face was shot into from 45 cm (18 inches). Point blank, execution style. He was also shot in the back of the head, twice in the leg and once in the back according to the autopsy results. Read below the fold...

Simple Question

Tags: 

Given that O's SOTU will propose a vile goulash of war, neo liberal austerity, abridgements of civil rights, foot dragging on climate change, meaningless tax cuts double talk on Wall Street bonuses, vague, but increasingly apparent gestures in the direction of cutting Medicare and Social Security, etc.

Why the hell is there absolutely no organizing or even discussion of massive protests against the slide into barbarism which O is willingly and enthusiastically presiding over? Read below the fold...

Chemicals turning male fetuses female

Thread: 

Telegraph:

Here's something rather rotten from the State of Denmark. Its government yesterday unveiled official research showing that two-year-old children are at risk from a bewildering array of gender-bending chemicals in such everyday items as waterproof clothes, rubber boots, bed linen, food, nappies, sunscreen lotion and moisturising cream.

Harmangate!

Interesting times:

(TPM link)

So, as far as I can tell, Rep. Jane Harman [D-Ca] was conspiring with the Israelis to drop some spy charges in exchange for some lobbying on her behalf, and Alberto Gonzales had an NSA warrantless wiretap™ (wait for it) on her phone and overheard the deal. Read below the fold...

We Should Start A List

So I included "impeachment" in the tags because I've got a dollar right here that says, before his first term is over, one or another Congresscritter is going to ride the wave of the guaranteed to happen future Obama-hating by introducing a bill of impeachment against him, esp as the Bailout fallout speeds the rate at which the economy tanks and nothing gets better for Little People, and brighter Republicans take advantage of the natural opportunity Obama and his bailout buddies have provided them.

Let's Active II

When last we spoke with activist Mimi Evans, she and several other concerned citizens were scheduled to meet with Rep. Edolphus Towns (D-NY, from the fightin' 10th), as they previously had with Rep. Yvette Clark (D-NY, from the fightin' 11th).

Mimi reports that both have agreed to support H. Res. 333, to impeach Dick Cheney. Read below the fold...

Let's active

[Welcome, After Downing Street readers!]

I recently spoke with Mimi Evans, a New York-based progressive activist whose day job is raising money for non-profits.

She's so passionate and articulate about the peace and impeachment movements that I wouldn't have felt right about chopping her comments into textbites. So, this runs somewhat longer than I usually post.

Here, she introduces herself: Read below the fold...
