Anti-war faction to take demands for Bush impeachment to White House

Toronto-- Depending on his whereabouts, Osama bin Laden must be laughing in his cave or in the throes of grave glee. With England and Egypt still mourning their dead from terrorist attacks, the American anti-war contingent is finding new life.

Promising a cast of "hundreds of thousands", the anti-war crowd will take their "Impeach President George Bush" agenda right to the front door of the White House, on September 24. While hundreds of thousands of people will pour onto the streets for major anti-war demonstrations, a march will assemble at the White House at 12 noon.

Activists are even bragging that President Bush is fully aware of their impeachment plans: "Haunted by the threat of impeachment, Bush has received the news that he dreaded most."

Some blame the U.S. for July's terrorist attacks in Britain.

The anti-war gang is buoyed by recent poll results.

"A majority of the U.S. public doubts that the U.S. will win in Iraq and believes Bush intentionally misled the country about Iraq's weapons capabilities, according to a USA Today/CNN/Gallup poll," states a media release sent to news outlets, including Canada Free Press.

"Previous Gallup polls have asked the same questions, but this was the first time that over half of those polled—51 percent—believed that Bush deliberately misled the people when he asserted Iraq had weapons of mass destruction," said USA Today. "As we reported two weeks ago, more than two-in-five voters (42 percent) say they would favor impeachment proceedings if it is found the president misled the nation about its reasons for going to war with Iraq, according to a recent Zogby poll.

"The war in Iraq is one if the greatest atrocities in recent times. The Bush administration's combination of arrogance with utter disregard for the law requires Congress to immediately proceed with filing articles of impeachment.

"Tens of millions of people know with certainty that Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and other leading officials lied to them. That is why the impeachment movement has developed as a nationwide grassroots political phenomenon."

Cash rich, the group has placed full-page advertisements in the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle and the Boston Globe among others "with the help of people all around the country."

Aided and abetted by political officials like Rep. John Conyers, the anti-war, "Impeach the President!" faction is on a roll.

Former President Jimmy Carter has revved up his campaign against the Bush administration, saying that detaining prisoners at Guantanamo Bay is an excuse for terrorists to attack the U.S.

Hanoi Jane Fonda has recently resurrected herself by claiming she will mobilize an anti-war protest bus empowered by vegetable oil.

Within weeks of the "Impeach-George-Bush!" march, former President Bill Clinton, gearing up his campaign to replace Secretary-General Kofi Annan at the United Nations, will make an appearance at the October 18 Live in Toronto convention.

Meanwhile, if Clinton couldn't be impeached after he lied to the Grand Jury, it's unlikely the anti-war movement can impeach President George W. Bush.
