Ex-Reaganite Roberts Calls for Impeachment Now

More in the growing drumbeat for impeachment -- this time from Paul Craig Roberts, who was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration. He was also Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal editorial page and Contributing Editor of National Review.

Roberts points to the recent incidents of fear mongering as further proof of an impending move by the administration. Roberts says Impeach Now - or face the end of our constitutional democracy.

Unless Congress immediately impeaches Bush and Cheney, a year from now the US could be a dictatorial police state at war with Iran.

Bush has put in place all the necessary measures for dictatorship in the form of "executive orders" that are triggered whenever Bush declares a national emergency. Recent statements by Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff, former Republican senator Rick Santorum and others suggest that Americans might expect a series of staged, or false flag, "terrorist" events in the near future.

Many attentive people believe that the reason the Bush administration will not bow to expert advice and public opinion and begin withdrawing US troops from Iraq is that the administration intends to rescue its unpopular position with false flag operations that can be used to expand the war to Iran.

Too much is going wrong for the Bush administration: the failure of its Middle East wars, Republican senators jumping ship, Turkish troops massed on northern Iraq's border poised for an invasion to deal with Kurds, and a majority of Americans favoring the impeachment of Cheney and a near-majority favoring Bush's impeachment. The Bush administration desperately needs dramatic events to scare the American people and the Congress back in line with the militarist-police state that Bush and Cheney have fostered.

William Norman Grigg recently wrote that the GOP is "praying for a terrorist strike" to save the party from electoral wipeout in 2008. Chertoff, Cheney, the neocon nazis, and Mossad would have no qualms about saving the bacon for the Republicans, who have enabled Bush to start two unjustified wars, with Iran waiting in the wings to be attacked in a third war.

The Bush administration has tried unsuccessfully to resurrect the terrorist fear factor by infiltrating some blowhard groups and encouraging them to talk about staging "terrorist" events. The talk, encouraged by federal agents, resulted in "terrorist" arrests hyped by the media, but even the captive media was unable to scare people with such transparent sting operations.

If the Bush administration wants to continue its wars in the Middle East and to entrench the "unitary executive" at home, it will have to conduct some false flag operations that will both frighten and anger the American people and make them accept Bush's declaration of "national emergency" and the return of the draft. Alternatively, the administration could simply allow any real terrorist plot to proceed without hindrance.

Read it all - this is one of the most interesting calls to date, but there is lots more evidence of the growing groundswell of support for impeachment here.

When: 1 p.m., Saturday, July 21

Where: Lafayette Park, across from the White House north lawn.

What: A grassroots gathering of Americans concerned about protecting the sanctity of the U.S. Constitution from executive branch abuses, which threaten to undermine checks and balances brilliantly designed by the Founding Fathers. This is not about Republicans or Democrats. This is about our form of government.

Citizens are invited to meet in the park, across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House, to demonstrate broad public alarm over the Bush administration's refusal to respect the courts, honor the rule of law and be held accountable for its actions.

The president's rejection of the power-sharing arrangement between Congress and the president, enshrined in the Constitution since 1787, makes it imperative that Bush and Cheney both be impeached. If the natural balance among the three branches of government is not restored through this process, even at this late stage in Bush's second term, the United States is in serious danger of becoming a monarchy, permanently dominated by a few powerful people.

Who: This event is not sponsored, supported or scripted by any party, candidate, or interest group. It is open to all, and debate and discussion are encouraged. Please spread the word about this important event. A large turnout will send a powerful message that cannot be spun.

I won't question his conservative pedigree. We all have family that go astray:


Some just ignore the company they keep.



Let's both play devil's advocate, re:9/11.

From the debunkers' website ScrewLooseChange:

"As I mentioned in the comments on a previous post, David Ray Griffin devotes two entire pages to the claim that Popular Mechanics editor [and researcher of "definitive" 9/11 conspiracy "slapdown"] Benjamin Chertoff [age 25!] is somehow related to Department of Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff. In a recent radio interview, he continues this insanity:..."

Then ends with this:

"Why does he think this is some type of cover-up? Does he think it is the job of private employers to conduct intensive background checks of their employees to find out who they might have as distant relatives?"

HughS, that was only last month's revelation. 9/11 is always pregnant. 101 dalmations. 1000 cuts. Yes, do ignore. Need filmed rebuttal. None to be had. And with all those "facts".

On topic: PC Roberts is one ornery SOB. I LIKE!
