JIHAD TO JUGGERNAUT
The holy war, JIHAD, waged for 6 years by the unchristian coalition and unreligious right Fundamentalists, has exploded on the conscience of our nation like a bomb.
There were few women who doubted the Majority Party of the Judicial Committee would vote out Articles of Impeachment. Especially after the House leadership appointed Henry youthful indiscretion Hyde as chairperson. (Please read the "Hyde Amendment")
But when it happened, few were really prepared to equate these 4 Articles of Impeachment with the Repugnant's determination to Get Clinton, a twice elected, popular president.
Probably because the evidence of the charges is so specious and followed an election and polls demonstrating that the great majority of us DID NOT WANT THIS PRESIDENT IMPEACHED.
Know this. It does not matter. It does not matter what the majority of the people want. Why? Because this is an angry, hateful campaign in the GOPper's holy war against Clinton that they have now turned into a JUGGERNAUT.
Here are their REAL articles of impeachment. Here's why they are trying to remove him from his office using the flimsiest of proofs, and against the will of the people:
- Article 1: Get Clinton! This mere governor of a small, insignificant state, had the arrogance to run for the office of the Presidency without the permission of the Good ol'boyz Club.
- Article 2: Get Clinton! Our Club called him a draft dodger and worse, a traitor, for avoiding the Vietnam crapshoot as many young men did. Our Club has its basis, and wields much of its power in the military.
- Article 3: Get Clinton! Despite Article 1 and 2; our disclosure of Gennifer Flowers; and his admission that he had tried marijuana, he had the temerity to WIN!
- Article 4: Get Clinton! Then, one of the first things he did was propose that Gays had the right to be in the military!
- Article 5: Get Clinton! He brought women and other minorities into his cabinet and other high echelon appointed offices.
- Article 6: Get Clinton! And as if all of the above was not enough, his wife is intelligent, capable and EQUAL. We cannot ever forgive him for Hillary.
- Article 7: Get Clinton! When he put Hillary in charge of a comprehensive health plan, our good ol' boyz stomachs rumbled.
When she appeared before Congress and stood up to, and surpassed the vicious examination we afforded her, our smoldering hatred for Clinton became a raging fire in our bellies. Damn the woman!
- Article 8: Get Clinton! He actually VETOED our attempts to deprive women of their reproductive rights -- several times.
- Article 9: Get Clinton! Despite our calling him ineffective and a lame duck, he faced us down in Congress TWICE, when we shut down the Government.
- Article 10: Get Clinton! We have harassed him and his administration at every turn, always with impeachment in mind. We labeled every charge after the Nixon impeachment for WaterGATE (Whitewatergate; filegate; travelgate etc) to influence voters.
Despite our efforts, the economy and the country flourished under his leadership and administration.
- Article 11: Get Clinton! He insisted that Social Security be saved and he insisted that the budget be balanced and he balanced it.
- Article 12: Get Clinton! He survived a sexual harassment suit we financed to embarrass and weaken him.
- Article 13: Get Clinton! He worked tirelessly to keep other nations in the world at peace -- Bosnia, Ireland, Israel and Palestine...
He recognized the importance of a country's economy, aiding many nations and backing international loans -- Mexico, Japan...
- Article 14: Get Clinton! He carried a grief stricken country through a terrible bombing of a federal build- ing and a horrible plane crash and innumerable weather induced catastrophes.
His administrative policies held many American families together who were exposed to personal tragedies.
- Article 15: Get Clinton! He had a consensual sexual relationship with a young woman and tried to conceal it, and lied about it, and STILL THE GREAT MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE DO NOT WANT HIM TO BE IMPEACHED.
- Article 16: Get Clinton! He finally admitted it publicly and begged forgiveness for his sins. His wife and daughter and most of the people forgave him -- we never will.
Well, there are more articles on the Repugnant's agenda, surely many more.
We noted that the Judicial Committee on the Repugnant side had only one white woman and all the rest were white men.
Their hatred of Clinton was palpable -- they were out to get Clinton, to remove him from office. One of the men, Bob Barr, was shown to be sympathetic to the White Supremacy Movement.
On the Demogrog side of the Judicial Committee, there were 4 women; 5 African Americans, and a Gay male. The rest were white males. They are ALL to be commended for the gallant fight they waged in defense of the Constitution.
They condemned the President's actions while defending his human right of fair treatment.
One outstanding Congressional Representative from Florida, Robert Wexler, pronounced the clarion call which we must all echo and pass along to our Representatives, family and friends:
"WAKE UP, AMERICA. THEY ARE TRYING TO IMPEACH OUR PRESIDENT."
