This morning Brad Newsham, organizer of the Beach Impeach Project, stopped by and let us know how he managed to get those impossibly straight letters. Thanks Brad!
I wondered 'bout the "straightness" too. The linkage explains nicely.
Michael, Polishifter...search me. I don't think the article mentioned how they did it.
Dada, and thanks for the link on Dada's Daily as well.
A large majority of people want that pic to happen. A lot of people want lobbyist reform to happen. But unless somebody listens, and puts some teeth into it, well....you might as well be talking to the.....Speaker Moonbeam!..(: And she's deaf.
More of the same old shit from a different asshole is all...(:
It just happens way to often to abstain from sodium w/ such news.
TFWY...agreed. I'm quite concerned about how to hold the Democratic Congress accountable over the next two years. Unfortunately, the group that Pelosi, et. al. need to be catering to to hold on to power is not lefties such as myself, but centrists. Lobbying reform though, is something that resonates with everybody...everybody except politicians, that is.
Cartledge... Spoken like a true Aussie! But you forget how bloody cold Ocean Beach and the water of our coast is. Comes down from Alaska you know.
Michael, I'll wait to see what gets by the President's desk.
Enigma, thanks for the mention over on Watergate Summer.
Pelosi most likely said impeachment was "off the table" to remove any appearance of conflict-of-interest that would arise if she were thrust into the presidency as a result of the coming impeachment.
What we need to do is to pressure Pelosi not to interfere with impeachment maneuverings within her party. Sending her Do-It-Yourself impeachments legitimizes her when she is forced to join the impeachment movement in the future.
Sacks and sacks of mail are about to arrive in Nancy Pelosi's office initiating impeachment via the House of Representative's own rules this Monday January 15th. This legal document is as binding as if a State or if the House itself passed the impeachment resolution (H.R. 635).
There's a little known and rarely used clause of the "Jefferson Manual" in the rules for the House of Representatives which sets forth the various ways in which a president can be impeached. Only the House Judiciary Committee puts together the Articles of Impeachment, but before that happens, someone has to initiate the process.That's where we come in. In addition to a House Resolution (635), or the State-by-State method, one of the ways to get impeachment going is for individual citizens like you and me to submit a memorial. ImpeachforPeace.org has created a new memorial based on one which was successful in impeaching a federal official in the past. You can find it on their website as a PDF.
You can initiate the impeachment process and simultaneously help to convince Pelosi to follow through with the process. Do-It-Yourself by downloading the memorial, filling in the relevant information (your name, state, etc.), and sending it in. Be a part of history.
