Cindy Sheehan: Cindy for Congress?

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

Well, the cat got out of the bag early as it so often does. I was going to announce on July 10 (my 50th birthday) before our Journey for Humanity that I would run against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) if she didn't put impeachment back on the table before our tour reached DC on July 23. Impeachment was never hers to take off the table as it is a Constitutional remedy for BushCo, not an optional smorgasbord choice. However, the story was leaked to the AP and we couldn't keep the big announcement under wraps.

Once again the American media, so quick to hype absurdly improbable risks and disasters such as West Nile Virus or Ebola outbreaks, has ignored a real one: in this case, the likelihood that global warming disaster is much more imminent than the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report has led us to believe.

The latest poll by American Research Group that 54 percent of Americans favor impeaching Vice President Dick Cheney, and that 46 percent favor impeaching President Bush, is encouraging news for impeachment advocates. Despite a corporate media blackout on impeachment that means almost nobody in the country knows that there is already a Cheney impeachment bill in the House with 14 co-sponsors (HR 333), over half the country nonetheless wants Cheney to get the boot.

Cynthia Bogard: Goracle Rising

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cynthia Bogard

I had the feeling the first time I saw An Inconvenient Truth. I had it when I read The Assault on Reason. I had it again when I saw his understated, partially holographic presence at Live Earth.

NOBODY marched to impeach Bill Clinton. Angry citizens DIDN'T fill the streets, carry signs, and beg a non-responsive Congress to do its Constitutional duty and remove Bill Clinton from his job. Panels WEREN'T held across the nation, moderated by Constitutional scholars who loved their country so much that they traversed its full span to inform packed audiences of the high crimes Bill Clinton had done.

One of the pillars of the contemporary Republican Party has been racism. They have made great efforts to mask it with euphemisms so they can use code words to let anti-black voters know what side they're on and, at the same time, piously deny they are being racist.

I'm getting sick and tired of hearing Democrats afraid of impeachment claim that it can't be done because the Senate, where Democrats hold a precarious one-seat edge, would never vote to convict and remove, which would require 67 votes.

Corporate Media pundits and sellout Democratic personalities are denouncing a return to the Fairness Doctrine standards in broadcasting eliminated by the Reagan Administration. They are falling into a trap set by the Republican Right and the largest corporations in America. Essentially, they are letting Republican political spin set the agenda for "acceptable" political views.

When he announced the commutation of Scooter Libby's 30-month sentence, George W. Bush cited the ways Libby has and will suffer: damage to his reputation, the suffering of his wife and children, large fines, and the "long-lasting" consequences of being a convicted felon.

Norman Solomon: A Bloody Media Mirror

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Norman Solomon

Many of America's most prominent journalists want us to forget what they were saying and writing more than 4 years ago to boost the invasion of Iraq. Now, they tiptoe around their own roles in hyping the war and banishing dissent to the media margins.
