CHENEY IS WORSE THAN BUSH. KUCINICH AND SHARPTON CALL FOR IMPEACHING CHENEY. AN UP FRONT NEWS IDEA MOVES AHEAD.

As far as I am aware, the idea of impeaching Dick Cheney first originated last year in UP FRONT News during my Democratic write-un campaign for the U.S. Senate against Hillary Clinton. Pseudo-left frauds like Senate “candidate” Jonathan Tasini and the lemmings in the Maoist Revolutionary Communist Party-generated “World Can’t Wait” cult, have called for the impeachment of George W. Bush. From any standpoint that is stupid for at least two reasons. First of all, it is not going to happen given the makeup of the House and Senate. There is about as much chance of successfully impeaching Bush as there is of the Bronx High School of Science baseball team capturing the American League pennant. The second reason, only to be considered if a political miracle occurred and Bush were removed from office, is that if Bush goes Cheney is in, constitutionally. As far as I am concerned, as bad as Bush is, Cheney is significantly worse. Bush is a liar, he is reactionary, he is shallow, he has no understanding of poverty, and he is best off pitching hay in Crawford, Texas. Dick Cheney, however, is from my perspective the closest thing we have had to a real live fascist a (purportedly defective) heartbeat way from the presidency. Cheney is obsessed by money and power and will step over - and if necessary on - anyone who gets in his way. (He is very much like Hillary Clinton.) He and his Halliburton friends have profited enormously from the blood spilled by Iraqis and Americans. He spies on people. He condones torture. His involvement in the vengeful Libby outing of a CIA agent whose husband would not lie for the Cheney/Bush Administration and its planned war is the stuff of treason. I am one of many who believe he knew about 9/11 before it happened. He is an “inside job” all by himself. He is evil.

In recent months, no doubt related to the increasing in print and internet circulation of UP FRONT News as well as some mainstream coverage of my Senate campaign, Impeach Cheney sounds are emerging. Indeed, the megalomaniac Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. who is known for jumping on others’ bandwagons and claiming credit for himself, has called for impeaching Cheney. More rationally, U.S. Congressman and Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich (who, whether he knows it or not, has had LaRouche people infiltrating his campaigns, very much like the LaRouche/Lenora Fulani-infused Green Party) has introduced legislation calling for Cheney’s impeachment.

Last Saturday I attended a rally at Rev. Al Sharpton’s House of Justice in Harlem. Rev. Sharpton, who had a few days previously given Mr. Kucinich a very warm reception at his National Action Network Convention, which I also attended, gave an intense political speech/sermon. Aside from some well-directed comments about the music industry moguls in midtown Manhattan who profit off misogyny and violence in gangsta rap, like Don Imus profited off the same, Rev. Sharpton, mentioning Kucinich, called for the impeachment of Dick Cheney.

Rev. Sharpton, whom I first met years ago through my minister, Rev. Timothy P. Mitchell of the Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church in Flushing, Queens, and with whom I sometimes talk about church and politics, knows that Bush as Acting President is bad news and must be resisted. Cheney as President is unacceptable and must be prevented.

My view is that the political benefits of removing Cheney from office for Americans and the rest of the world would be enormous. For one thing, Bush without Cheney would be the lamest of lame ducks.

UP FRONT News said it first. And, regardless of one’s views about Rev. Sharpton, the fact is that, when he speaks, people listen.
