"Finally, it has started. People have begun to speak of impeaching President George W. Bush--not in hushed whispers but openly, in newspapers, on the Internet, in ordinary conversations and even in Congress. As a former member of Congress who sat on the House Judiciary Committee during the impeachment proceedings against President Richard Nixon, I believe they are right to do so."
The main purpose of this opening paragraph is to establish to you, the reader, the credentials of the author, Elizabeth Holzman. We discover that she was a Representative in the House of Representatives at the time of the hearings to impeach President Nixon, and that she sat on the House Judiciary Committee! Therefore, she must know whereof she speaks! Right? By establishing her credentials in this manner, Holzman establishes herself as a "Respected Expert," a key ingredient in the Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan.
Since she is also writing in a respected magazine, "The Nation," Holzman is speaking from a "Respected Forum."
Holzman recounted the bottom-line reason impeachment proceedings were initiated against President Nixon: ".. it became clear that the President had so systematically abused the powers of the presidency and so threatened the rule of law that he had to be removed from office."
She now believes President Bush has crossed the same dividing line. Let us now review the reasons Elizabeth Holzman feels President Bush should be impeached.
* "Bush's breathtaking scorn for our international treaty obligations under the United Nations Charter and the Geneva Conventions." (Ibid.)
I always get a little upset when an American government official criticizes another official because that person did not uphold some international law, for this type of criticism conditions Americans to accept international law and conventions as the standard by which our government should be judged. The real standard (for Americans) is American law and American precedent. Validating global law and convention will only lead to acceptance of the coming "Christ" and his global dictatorial regime.
* She became "disturbed by the torture scandals and the violations of US criminal laws at the highest levels of our government" (Ibid.)
* .".. President deliberately misled the country into the war in Iraq." (Ibid.)
* "President Bush directed the wiretapping of hundreds, possibly thousands, of Americans, in violation of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA)--and argued that, as Commander in Chief, he had the right in the interests of national security to override our country's laws." (Ibid.)
At this point, Elizabeth Holzman invoked the somber image of Watergate! Now that President Bush's activities have now been labeled, "Watergate," can the actual process of impeachment be far behind? If the President is to be impeached, control of Congress must pass from current Republican control to Democrat control, and that means the Democrats must win the mid-term elections this coming November. However, news reports through 2006 can be made to unfold in such a manner that President Bush slowly begins to "twist in the wind."
Holzman then recaps her opinion as to the possibility of impeaching President Bush.
"As a matter of constitutional law, these and other misdeeds constitute grounds for the impeachment of President Bush. A President, any President, who maintains that he is above the law--and repeatedly violates the law--thereby commits high crimes and misdemeanors, the constitutional standard for impeachment and removal from office. A high crime or misdemeanor is an archaic term that means a serious abuse of power, whether or not it is also a crime, that endangers our constitutional system of government." (Ibid.)
For the rest of this six-page article, Elizabeth Holzman describes each of these impeachable offenses in considerable detail. We encourage you to read this entire document. However, one statement does stand out and needs to be shown here.
"A President can commit no more serious crime against our democracy than lying to Congress and the American people to get them to support a military action or war. It is not just that it is cowardly and abhorrent to trick others into giving their lives for a nonexistent threat, or even that making false statements might in some circumstances be a crime. It is that the decision to go to war is the gravest decision a nation can make, and in a democracy the people and their elected representatives, when there is no imminent attack on the United States to repel, have the right to make it. Given that the consequences can be death for hundreds, thousands or tens of thousands of people--as well as the diversion of vast sums of money to the war effort--the fraud cannot be tolerated. That both Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon were guilty of misleading the nation into military action and neither was impeached for it makes it more, not less, important to hold Bush accountable."
"Once it was clear that no weapons of mass destruction would be found in Iraq, President Bush tried to blame 'bad intelligence' for the decision to go to war, apparently to show that the WMD claim was not a deliberate deception. But bad intelligence had little or nothing to do with the main arguments used to win popular support for the invasion of Iraq." (Ibid.)
We could not have said it more succinctly; but Cutting Edge was right in the midst of the action, calling to people's attention that President Bush and his entire hierarchy led the nation into an invasion of Iraq based upon outright, bold lies and manipulations. Read our two part series, posted in February, 2004 -- "Bush/Blair Justification Of Iraq Invasion: Now Proven To Be Lies, Distortions, Exaggerations" -- Part 1 and Part 2
Elizabeth Holzman even reports on the findings of the Downing Street Memo, which Administration backers have tried their best to discredit. However, if a person with Ms Holzman's credentials and access to intelligence reports verifies the existence of this memo, then the memo is real indeed.
As I read through this six-page article listing all the reasons President Bush should be impeached, I realized Holzman did NOT list the use of Depleted Uranium Munitions in both Iraq and Afghanistan! This war crime is the highest and most serious of all crimes for which President Bush can be impeached! Ordering our troops into these two countries, and using D.U. weaponry in unprecedented numbers, has doomed the entire civilian populations (approximately 55 million people), and has doomed the vast majority of all American soldiers to a slow, agonizing death. (Population figures from CIA World Factbook Online, July, 2005)
Why has Holzman's indictment of President Bush not included the most serious crime of them all? Once again, you are looking at the outworking of a master plan. I remember well reading the indictment of President Clinton. Of all the serious national security crimes for which Bill Clinton could have been impeached, the House of Representatives decided to impeach him on the weakest of all charges -- Oval Office sex with his intern, Monica Lewinsky!
I predicted then that the "fix was in," that the Senate would exonerate President Clinton. Of course, that is exactly what happened as a Masonic Senate exonerated the former Demolay President (Read
Therefore, the fact that Holzman's list of impeachable offenses does not include Depleted Uranium warfare is staring us directly in the face. What conclusions may we draw from it? We might conclude that the "fix is in" already for Masonic Skull & Bones President Bush to undergo severe testing and threatened impeachment, but not suffer that fate in the end. However, the fact that he invoked his powers as a National Sovereign to invade Iraq against the wishes of the world community, and the propaganda lie that President Bush based his "Regime Change" foreign policy upon Christian doctrine and End of the Age understandings, may still destroy those two institutions completely -- without the President actually being removed from office.
