3:00 Conclusion

Why:   Constitutional Scholars such as Harvard’s Lawrence Tribe (L Tribe: Impeachment for Obstruction of Justice; Wapo) and a number of those at UB Law School (Constitutional Law Prof Martha McCluskey; Sara Faduski, plus), are joined by some Republicans and a good 40% of the voting population in calling for impeachment. Per UB Professor of Law and William J. Magavern Fellow Martha McCluskey:

… In the case of the Trump administration, the questions of obstruction of justice and brazen violations of the emoluments clause deserve serious examination as grounds for impeachment. These issues cut to the core of our democracy by threatening the very rule of law and the legitimacy of all the President’s official actions…..   We need to also demand a government that values human rights, economic security, equal and accessible justice, peace, health, education and all the other good things WNY Peace Center and its allies are working hard to advance.

Resist Militiarism! Taskforce

Please call your Congressperson and urge him or her to support Rep. Barbara Lee’s amendment, already passed by the House Appropriations Committee, that would repeal of the 2001 War Authorization (AUMF) – whenever and however that issue might come the floor.  The core arguments for repeal include: 2001 was fully 16 years ago; the war has been a sprawling and relatively random  (at least 14 countries have had military operations under the bill) without Congressional debate; and Congress needs to reassert its war powers authority under the Constitution and of course put a stop to this rampant militarism and endless war that only benefits the weapons manufacturers. Let’s get our congresspeople to rescind this permission for endless war!!

Let’s also support Roots Action’s call for a ban of weaponized drones. Our government is setting up killer drone bases all over the country and all over the world. The 107th Attack Squadron at Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station is slated to begin assassinations from there by the end of the year, possibly the end of the summer. It is past time to grow the opposition to these horrors. Ban Weaponized Drones:
