John Conyers keeps having hearings, but then he does nothing. By showing the world that he has the evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors by the President and Vice President and the White House Cabinet and by doing nothing with that evidence, John Conyers and Nancy Pelosi and others are showing that there is no accountability for the President of the U.S.
Bush said immediately after being illegally selected by five members of the U.S. Supreme Court that now he isn't accountable to anyone. He's proven right in that regard, and it's Nancy Pelosi's fault. By allowing the terrible shepherd, who stole his way into the position to continue on, Pelosi and Conyers do the worst thing they can.
Nancy Pelosi just said that George W. Bush will be gone in 100 days, so why bother with impeachment.
Well, if she had started impeachment proceedings immediately upon taking office as House Speaker, Bush and Cheney would have been long gone and she would be president, barring her own guilt.
Whatever George W. Bush and Dick Cheney have done since the time they would have been removed and whatever they do yet is on Nancy Pelosi's hands too. If they allow Israel to attack Iran, it's Pelosi's fault.
Don't say that the U.S. has no sway over Israel. Israel has nuclear weapons and could threaten the U.S.; however, even though Israel has submarines with nuclear missiles, it couldn't destroy the whole U.S. with nuclear weapons launched from its submarines. The U.S. though could eliminate Israel. Israel has no guarantee that its submarines wouldn't be destroyed first. Perhaps the Israelis have told the U.S. that the Israelis in the U.S. would conduct biological and chemical warfare or that they have planted nuclear weapons inside the U.S.
Besides, the U.S. is sending in a huge naval fleet, a veritable armada, to and around the Persian Gulf. Why would the U.S. be doing that unless the plan is for Israel to attack? Also, Israel would be flying through U.S. controlled airspace (Iraq). If the U.S. President were to tell Israel not to do it and they started to do it, the U.S. Air Force and Navy could stop them.
Regardless, the U.S. gives the Israelis some $3 billion a year decade after decade no matter how tough it is for the poor in the U.S. That's a huge sum for a nation that size. If the U.S. said don't attack Iran and Israel went ahead and did it anyway, then those funds could and should instantly stop. That's the mundane perspective.
Obviously, the neocons are still very much in charge even though they've lost all credibility. Why is that? Follow the money. American candidates suck up to money. Any candidate that isn't a money grubber is destroyed in the corporate media.
Anyway, if Pelosi had had impeachment hearings right away, there would have been so much evidence that would have been put before the people, including the Republicans, who love to have their heads buried, that the overwhelming majority of Americans would have been glad to have both Bush and Cheney removed.
As John Dean said, it's worst than Watergate.
