P. 6, AMERICAN FREE PRESS * April 24, 2006 The Drive to Impeach the President & Vice President

People Across the Political Spectrum Start to See What a Threat Bush Poses to America, World

Don’t believe claims that only ‘leftists’
want president impeached

By Michael Collins Piper

In case you ever had any doubts about the intrinsic dishonesty of the self-styled “responsible conservatives” in America, consider this: one of the so-called “leadership” groups in the “conservative movement” — which is today little more than an adjunct of the Republican Party — is raising money by saying that “leftist activists” are organizing to “fund a campaign to impeach George W. Bush.”

There’s a grain of truth in what they’re saying, but there’s much more to the story that they don’t want you to know about.

A slick fund-raising letter from the Young America’s Foundation, signed by its longtime president, Ron Robinson, is trying to scare Americans into giving money to the foundation to help fend off the growing demand by a wide-ranging array of Americans that the president of the United States be removed from office by the constitutionally provided measure of impeachment.


GROWING MOVEMENT: Marshall Wheelock reads an amendment to a resolution calling for the impeachment of President George W. Bush, March 25, 2006, at a town meeting in the Brattleboro Union High School in Brattleboro, Vermont. The amendment passed and the town joins five other towns that are calling for an investigation of the U.S. president and impeachment if necessary.

The foundation—which is a spin-off of the Young Americans for Freedom, a “youth” group which was founded on the Connecticut estate of “former” CIA official and longtime Council on Foreign Relations and Bilderberg stalwart William F. Buckley Jr.—is raising the old-fashioned “red flag” and screaming that the foundation will help save the Bush administration (and America) from “the leftists.”

Robinson says: “these radicals must be stopped before they cause serious damage to our nation and our president.”

The rhetoric sounds good, and presses all the “right” buttons, so to speak, but the letter is based on a lie. It’s not just “the leftists” who want Bush out of office. Lots of Americans who are anything but leftists have joined the crusade to bring to account the internationalists who — using the Bush administration as their tool — dragged America into the debacle in Iraq and who are now aiming for a senseless war against Iran to protect not America, but Israel.

It would probably be belaboring the point to mention that former high-ranking Pentagon official Col. Donn de Grand Pre, a good friend of American Free Press (AFP), has lent his prestige to the Committee to Impeach Bush and Cheney (CIBC).

CIBC is now in the process of preparing an exclusive special “Impeach Bush and Cheney” report that provides real patriots all the information they need to help stimulate even greater demand for the impeachment, conviction and removal of the duo.

In addition, calls for the impeachment of Bush have become almost standard fare from callers phoning in to the Republic Broadcasting Network (see rbnlive.com), which is the fastest-growing patriotic “alternative” radio network on the face of the planet. These patriots are anything but “leftists.”

It’s also worth pointing out that the America First Party (see their web site at americafirstparty.org) approved a resolution calling for the impeachment of the president. The America First Party is hardly a “leftist” organization in any sense of the word. The party’s resolution reads as follows:

Whereas, The America First National Committee has adjudged the war against Iraq to be an unnecessary, improper, illegal, unconstitutional and immoral misuse of the power and might of the United States Armed Forces and the brave men and women who have volunteered to serve as protectors and defenders of the United States of America and her people; and,

Whereas, The America First National Committee has adjudged the war against Iraq sets a dangerous precedent for our nation that must be resisted and never allowed to happen again; and,

Whereas, It is only through assuring that the brave fighting men and women of the United States Armed Forces are not misused that we can best support their mission to protect and defend the United States of America. . . .

We call upon the Joint Chiefs of Staff to refuse orders they know to be immoral and illegal as required by the Uniform Code of Military Justice; and,

We demand that Congress refuse to fund preemptive wars of colonial conquest; and,

We demand that our government refocus its national security efforts on securing our ports and our borders to prevent future terrorist attacks; and,

We demand that Congress immediately impeach the president and remove him from office for waging war without constitutional authority; and,

We pledge to work for the replacement of every member of Congress who aids, abets, or shields the President in these impeachable offenses.

If Young America’s Foundation happens to drop a letter in your mailbox saying that “the leftists” are demanding the impeachment of the president, you might want to drop them a line and tell them otherwise. Or put the letter from the foundation in the circular file where it belongs.
