The Final Abuse Of Power, The Planned Bush Self-Pardon
The following item arrived in our email today
under the name “The Pen.”. It struck us that this is quite possible. An outgoing president has the power to pardon
criminals. Nixon was pardoned by the man he appointed to be his successor, President Jimmy Carter, thus in an off-handed way,
pardoned himself. But can a president self-pardon himself of crimes directly?
Impeach Bush Before He Pardons Himself
to Seymour Hersh there is a conga line of insiders waiting until January 20th to spill the beans on the gross criminality
of the Bush/Cheney administration. Waiting . . . because if they did it now the two of them would be tarred and feathered
on the way out the door.
But we the people do not have to wait. We can and must demand the immediate impeachment of
both Bush and Cheney for what is already known. At the very least the defiance of congressional subpoenas at the behest of
the White House is an open and shut case for accountability now.
as his final constitutional insult, his final spit in the face to the American people and all rule of law, it is transparently
obvious that Bush is planning the most wholesale and wrongful pardon of the worst political criminals in American history,
his whole criminal gang, INCLUDING himself.
And don't think that is not their precise plan. Please, what power has
Bush NOT abused? What heinous, self-serving, shameless and dishonest act has he ever shied away from, when he was torturing
and eavesdropping and lying us into wars of corporate aggression. Does anyone doubt that is what he is planning on doing?
when you submit this action page, you will have one last chance to get one of the "Impeach Both!!!" caps, which after January
20th will no longer be available from us for love or for money.

Will Congress now act? That is not the yardstick of the worth of our activism. We speak
out because we must speak out, whether we are heeded or not. Let history record that we spoke out until the last minute to
the eternal shame of those who did not. Because when enough of us speak out at once, the worst thing that can possibly happen
is that we are building the progressive base for the REAL change of the future.
So Bush most certainly is planning
on pardoning himself. And all the right wing lock down ideologues in the corporate controlled media will call it "healing".
Let's all make nice with war criminals? Shall we all make nice with the gang rape of our economy, our environment and our
Constitution? We think not.
And one more thing. You know that come January 20th the right wing will start calling for
the impeachment of our new president, over a endless litany of the most ridiculous of trivial trifles. In fact it has already
started even though he has not even taken office. If they are so hot on impeaching someone, let them speak out now, when it
truly is called for, or shut the hell up in 73 days.
