CBS 58, Michele McCormack – Milwaukee based group says Clinton and Obama can still hold Bush administration accountable
MILWAUKEE-Democrats attending the Founder’s Day Gala Saturday night got an earful as they walked up to the Midwest Airlines Center.
The Milwaukee Impeachment Committee staged a vocal demonstration demanding that the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney be part of the national Democratic platform.
The group believes the President and Vice President abused their power when entering the U.S. into the war in Iraq.
Organizer Debbie Metke says protestors were Democrats, Republicans and Green Party members.
The group also staged a protest outside Repubican John McCain’s Milwaukee appearance Friday night.
In a statement the committee wrote:
“Congress should pursue the accountability of elected officials, and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama as members of Congress should include this issue in their campaigns and in the national Democratric platform.
Wisconsin is an appropriate state to make this demand since its state Democratic Party was the first to put impeachments in its 2006 platform, and two of our Congressional Represenatatives, Tammy Baldwin and Gwen Moore have signed H. Res. 333 calling for Cheney’s impeachment and Rep. Wexler’s letter calling for impeachment hearings by the House Judiciary Committee.”

At 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 16, 2008, the Milwaukee Impeachment Committee (MIC) will hold a press conference at the main entrance of the Midwest Airlines Center , 400 W. Wisconsin Avenue in downtown Milwaukee . The purpose of this event is to remind the Democratic presidential candidates of their oaths to defend the Constitution, which includes holding President Bush and Vice-President Cheney accountable for their abuse of executive powers. We will distribute copies of George McGovern’s statement in favor of impeachment to press members and the public, and we will be available to answer questions from the press.
The February 16th event is part of MIC’s continuing pressure to hold Congress accountable to its duty to the Constitution. Congress should pursue the accountability of elected officials, and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama as members of Congress should include this issue in their campaigns and in the national Democratic platform. We, the voters, want the Democratic candidates to follow the Democratic Party of Wisconsin’s six 2007 resolutions calling for impeachment. We, the voters, want the Democratic candidates to follow the Democratic Party of Wisconsin’s six 2007 resolutions calling for impeachment. Wisconsin is an appropriate state to make this demand: in 2006. Our state Democratic Party was the first to include the impeachment of Bush and Cheney in its platform. Since then, two of our Democratic Representatives, Tammy
Baldwin (WI-02) and Gwen Moore (WI-04), have signed H.Res.333 calling for Cheney’s impeachment and Rep. Wexler’s letter calling for impeachment hearings by the House Judiciary Committee.
MIC calls for impeachment on numerous grounds, four of the most obvious being:
- Starting a war is illegal according to the United Nations, of which the U.S. is a member;
- Lying to Congress and the American public in order to initiate an undeclared war in Iraq ;
- The use of warrantless wire-tapping, which contravenes citizens’ right to privacy as declared in the 4th Amendment to the Constitution;
- The use of torture and rendition, which violates the Constitution’s 8th Amendment prohibiting “cruel and unusual punishments” of prisoners.

The Capital Times (Madison, Wisconsin)
Kevin Barrett: Media are ignoring 9/11 whistle-blowers
Letter to the editor — 1/26/2008
Dear Editor: I am out of a job because The Capital Times and other mainstream media outlets refuse to report the news.
As a scholar, my job is to seek and report the truth, no matter where it leads. That is also the job of the media.
Along with hundreds of other scholars, engineers, architects, and former high-level military, intelligence and executive branch officials (patriotsquestion911.com), I have pointed out that the official story of 9/11 is a ridiculous fairy tale, contradicted at every turn by overwhelming evidence. But rather than reporting on all of these people, and investigating the evidence they cite, the media singled me out for vicious attacks, up to and including a death threat from Bill O’Reilly.
Recently, the former president of Italy, Francesco Cossiga, stated publicly that the global intelligence community and the democratic forces in Europe know that the CIA and Mossad perpetrated the 9/11 attacks. Why wasn’t that front page headlines?
Last week, the probable next prime minister of Japan, Yukihisa Fujita, grilled current prime minister Fukuda for half an hour about the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center and the staged events at the Pentagon and asked whether the Japanese police could arrest George W. Bush for his complicity in 9/11. Why wasn’t that front page news? Japan, after all, is the world’s second-largest economy, and if they are pulling the plug not just on financing the Iraq and Afghan wars, but the whole U.S. economy, because they know this country is led by 9/11 war criminals, maybe the American people should hear about it.
Also last week FBI whistle-blower Sibel Edmonds, who has implicated leading neocon ex-members of the Bush administration in the financing and coverup of 9/11, made front page headlines in the UK. Why won’t the U.S. media cover Edmonds, the most gagged whistle-blower in U.S. history?
Why have the media refused to report on the 120+ senior military, intelligence service, law enforcement and government officials, 290+ engineers and architects, 60+ pilots and aviation professionals, 190+ professors, and 200+ 9/11 survivors and family members who have publicly blasted the official 9/11 fairy tale — many of them openly calling 9/11 an inside job
As for me, my reputation has been ruined, at least in the eyes of the fewer and fewer people naive enough to believe the mainstream media. I can no longer practice my chosen profession, in training for which I invested more than 10 years of my life and tens of thousands of dollars, because the media singled me out for distorted coverage — while ignoring the hundreds of others vastly more qualified than I am who say the same things and refusing to investigate the evidence they cite.

when we talk about war, we're really talking about peace."
