View Full Version : The Mother of All Phone Actions: Call Today on Stopping Mukasey and Impeachment‏

11-05-2007, 11:52 PM
This coming Tuesday will be the biggest decision making day yet of
the entire Congress, 1) the Senate Judiciary Committee will vote on
Mukasey for attorney general, AND 2) Dennis Kucinich will force the
House to consider H.Res 333 to impeach Cheney. And that is why Monday
must be the biggest day ever for citizen activism. The entire future
of our country and democracy will turn on whether you personally pick
up a phone and a toll free phone call or two on BOTH of these issues.
It's a double header!

Here are three fresh, tested, toll free numbers to use for your
calls: 800-828-0498, 800-614-2803 and 877-851-6437.

First We Have To Stop Mukasey

Despite the fact that Mukasey still will not rule out torture as
official U.S. policy, and refuses to even admit that waterboarding (a
torture technique from the Spanish inquisition) IS torture, Diane
Feinstein (CA) says she is "planning" to vote for him. Despite the
fact that Mukasey refuses to concede that the president must obey the
laws of the land and not act as a law unto himself, Chuck Schumer
(NY) is "planning" on voting for him. Well, here's what we're
planning on doing.

We're planning flooding their phone lines on Monday. We are planning
on telling them that this is absolutely the last straw, and unless
Democrats like them find a spine and start fighting on principle they
can forget about any more campaign contributions.

Without the votes of these two Democratic senators Mukasey is
finished. What baseball team ever looked at the scoreboard in the 7th
inning and gave up because they were two runs behind? What kind of
crazy loser insanity would that be? And yet we heard a CNN fluff head
gloating on the TV about how the White House bullies win again. Well
we still have our power hitters coming up and those power hitters are

Now, Feinstein in particular, and many of the other senators, have
this cute little game they play where they let their answering
machines fill up, to try to discourage people from even bothering to
call. So what we have done is create a special function on the page
below, where you can instantly look up all their LOCAL district
office numbers.

Stop Mukasey Action Page: http://www.usalone.com/no_mukasey.php (http://www.usalone.com/no_mukasey.php)

Go the page above if you can't get through to their Washington
offices, get all the local phone numbers and fax numbers, and call
them all. Let's fill up the DC machines if they try to hide in their
offices. Let's fill up all the local district office machines. In
fact do both. And then just to be sure, submit the email action form
on the same page to send them an instant email message.

We have 39,000 participants in CA and 16,000 in NY who will receive
this alert. You have the numbers to change the course of political
history. You have the power, if you just pick up the telephone and
make your toll free or local calls right now.

Because members of the Judiciary committee represent us all, you do
not have to be one of their direct constituents to call Feinstein or
Schumer, but if you are make sure you make that clear. This means
even those of you who do not have Democratic senators have a right to
have an impact on this. And remember, the more pressure we put on all
the other senators, the more the waywards on the Judiciary Committee
will feel it, including others lurking around who have not disclosed
their vote plans.

On Fox News, they said that waterboarding torture was basically like
swimming lessons. More like dying lessons if you ask us. The next
thing they tell us is that the Iron Maiden is like acupuncture and
the Rack is good for height enhancement. Are you outraged yet? Please
make as many phone calls as you can an encourage everyone else you
know to do the same.

Second, We Must Support H.Res. 333 To Impeach Cheney

Dennis Kucinich has stepped forward to bring the resolution to
impeach Cheney as a privileged resolution. This means that the House
is forced to consider it. So what are the so-called leaders of the
House planning on doing? They are "planning" on trying to quash
debate with an obscure parliamentary trick called a "motion to
table". So what are we planning on doing?

We're planning on calling each and every member of the House of
Representatives and demand that they actually represent us. We're
planning on demanding that they support H.Res. 333 and give it a full
and free debate and hearing, and to reject the motion to table. We're
planning on telling them that unless they stand up for the people
now, we will find new and different candidates for their seats,
through primary challenges if necessary in the very next election.

Here again, we have created a special web page where you can lookup
the local district office phone numbers of your own personal house

H.Res 333 Action Page: http://www.usalone.com/hres333.php (http://www.usalone.com/hres333.php)

Again, if you can't get through to your house member in Washington,
use the instant lookup function on the page above to get the name of
your own representative and all their local phone numbers.

Unless Cheney is impeached they will absolutely bomb Iran. Unless
Cheney is impeached they will absolutely start World War 3, and very
likely declare martial law and officially suspend the constitution,
as just happened in Pakistan. They don't need any congressional
resolution to do it. They are determined to ignore Congress entirely
if necessary. There is no law they have not broken already. They are
constitutional outlaws to the core. The only thing that will stop
them is impeachment. And the only thing that will make impeachment
happen is your voices.

Please make your calls also to support H.Res. 333 now.

If You Can, Step Up For Kucinich Too

None of what is happening now would be happening without the
courageous leadership of Dennis Kucinich on this issue. Who else has
the sheer guts to call for what the American people want? If you want
to thank him for his stand on this issue, please consider making a
donation to him as well.
