A resolution to impeach President George W. Bush is pending before the Illinois legislature. Similar resolutions await action in the Vermont and California state legislatures.

Democrats in Vermont, New Hampshire, Alaska, Maine, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Nevada, New Mexico, Colorado, California and Hawaii all have passed impeachment resolutions. Seven more state resolutions are pending, and 27 local political groups and parties nationwide have adopted such resolutions, according to an article on

Such strong coast-to-coast support for a homeland regime change is really not surprising nor shocking. The evidence is overwhelming. A recent article in Rolling Stone magazine by Robert Kennedy Jr. clearly shows the 2004 election was stolen in Ohio. Besides his general and perhaps purposeful incompetence leading up to the mysterious 9/11 attacks, George W. Bush lied about Weapons of Mass Destruction to lead the country into war in Iraq. While classifying more information as “Secret” than any previous administration, Bush continues today to run illegal wiretaps, approve torture, ignore the Geneva Convention, operate secret prisons overseas, assert military tribunals (recently struck down by the Supreme Court) and violate the separation of powers doctrine by using signing statements to pick and choose congressional legislation.

Most recently, he and his minions launched attack dogs on The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and The Washington Post for exposing his illegal and unconstitutional spying on financial and personal transactions. Previously, in the same primacy-of-secrecy and creditability-attacking spirit, the Bush administration also released the name of CIA operative Valarie Plame, which is a felony, as a political retaliation. See the in-your-face nature of these spurious assaults on the vital principles of “Freedom of the Press,” “Freedom of Information” and “The Public’s Right to Know” that they truly are.

Author and columnist Ann Coulter is the pin-up girl of the Bush attack dogs. Here’s her bilious assault on the widows of the 9-11 attacks who called for further investigations: “I’ve never seen people enjoying their husbands’ deaths so much.” Here’s another gem from this Bush-supporting pundit: “I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East and sending liberals to Guantanamo.” One wonders what Susan B. Anthony would say about another of Coulter’s thoughts: “It would be a much better country if women did not vote.”
