Rep. Maxine Waters & Debra Sweet (WCW) joining the 6/26 Book Event

A Book Event for Impeach the President

An excerpt from the book:

"The Bush-Cheney administration and the radical right-wing forces that it represents constitute an extraordinary threat to the world. As events unfold, this becomes ever more painfully evident: The appalling debacle of Katrina; the disastrous and immoral occupation of Iraq with no end in sight; the murder of prisoners by American personnel in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantanamo, and the covert rendition of prisoners to nations known for torture; Bush's admission that he secretly and illegally authorized spying on all Americans and his brazen declaration upon being caught that he will continue to do so, and on and on. Their corruption, incompetence, criminal activity, and disregard for human rights and the law seem endless. The White House has become increasingly embattled as a result of these events, but it will take unprecedented popular action to end this regime. Governments do not fall of their own weight; they must be driven out."
