The impossible impeachment:
This country is vanishing before our eyes, not because we are blind, but because we are willing participants in its destruction.
Impeachment in New Mexico Defeated in Procedural Vote to Prevent Full Senate Debate. Senator John Grubesic Sends Out Beautiful Press Release.
In a move that appears to have been carefully orchestrated, New Mexico's impeachment resolution was blocked from full debate on the Senate floor by a handful of Democratic Senators, some of whom switched their votes for unknown reasons.
Here is the list of Senators who voted against the Resolution
Senator Ben Altamirano, President Pro Tem, Voted for it in Rules
Senator Pete Campos
Senator Carlos Cisneros, Signed the Bill but is on the Senate Finance Conference Committee with Smith and Jennings, strong opponents.
Senator Phil Griego
Senator Tim Jennings
Senator John Pinto
Senator John Arthur Smith
Senator James Taylor
Senator David Ulibarri, Voted for it in Public Affairs
From the media gallery, we noticed Senators Cisneros, Griego, Campos, Taylor and Smith in a huddle, but it wasn't until later that we considered its significance. Senator Altamirano, the President Pro Tem, appears to have been a strong voice on the topic, and there may have been some word from the Governor, although that is speculation. Please see Senator Grubesic's beautiful press release on the topic to go.
As I look at the way forward, I see several promising directions. There are still several important pieces of Legislation that need support, namely the No Real ID Resolutions, the Prohibit Nuclear Weapons Memorial and the Dismantle Kirtland Nuclear Weapons Permanently measure. I will need a day or so to examine the options and determine which to focus on and am interested in reader feedback on the subject.
At this point, it is also important to begin to turn once again to the national debate on the manufactured and propagandistic "War on Terror" and aggressively intervene in the ongoing lack of understanding there.
Several national marches will take place later this month, such as the March on the Pentagon on the anniversary of the Start of the Iraq War. Mother Media would like to join other citizen organizations in some sort of action here in Santa Fe on that day, and I believe there is significant effort involved in an Albuquerque event which we would like to publicize. There is also a multi-organization event this Saturday called by Dave Batcheler of the Constitution Party which may be of interest to some citizens, more information below Senator Grubesic's Press Release. I was enormously pleased recently to pick up my first Constitutionally sound Liberty Dollars in solid silver and silver certificate from Joe Thornton and his wife. I strongly support this intiative to use a currency that is backed by a commodity (any commodity would do, silver is handy and standard) and am thankful to Mr. Thornton and his wife Glorietta Miller of Carrizozo. Joe was formerly a registered Republican but one of our strongest impeachment team members. You can see his testimony in the several videos we created of the Rules and Public Affairs Committee Hearings which have had over 15,000 viewings between them. Congresswoman Liz Holtzman's videoconference testimony to Senator Ortiz y Pino is also now available online.
I very much enjoyed the opportunity to work with everyone, there were times where I felt we were all postively glowing in the Committee hearings. It is clear to me that we have a terrific team ready and willing to do what needs to be done in these dangerous, but opportune times. We must all do what we can to bring the issues that matter to the fore, and there is no better way to do so than as a candidate for office. To that end, I would like to offer my candidacy for US Senate and hope that you will let me know your thoughts on the issues that are important as well as recommendations for how I might be most effective on behalf of all of us, and Mother Earth. If you are interested in helping with such an initiative, let me know.

Senate Joint Resolution 5 Killed in the Senate -- Procedure before People -- by Senator John T. L. Grubesic
Santa Fe, NM – This country was founded by rebels. This country was forged in violence, ferocity, dissent and uproar. This country is vanishing before our eyes, not because we are blind, but because we are willing participants in its destruction. Today on the Senate floor you witnessed an excellent example. The Impeachment Resolution -- Senate Joint Resolution 5 – died quietly with no debate whatsoever. The dignity of the New Mexico State Senate was maintained as we followed carefully designed rules of procedure to ensure that nothing disrupted the workings of this austere body. We did a great job of making it appear that government was working.
However, we have to ask, which government and on whose behalf? The action taken by the Senate was not the action taken by a body that protects the freedoms of a sovereign people. The action was a carefully orchestrated option designed to protect the integrity of an institution and perpetuate the well-oiled workings of government. A government that has evidently forgotten that we serve at the pleasure of those we govern.
It is clear that, from the highest levels of government in our country down to our State, very few of us want to deal with the unpleasant political mess that impeachment could become. Our actions today showed where our priorities are – we forgot that the Constitution was not designed to serve government, but to protect the people. There should have been debate, argument, uproar. Instead, we quietly gutted the sovereign power of the people with polite political procedure.
When future generations look back on our time, the shock will not be because of the violent, impolite nature of the fight that preceded the destruction of Constitutional government, but by the meekness with which we watched it die.

Constitution Party of New Mexico and Other Organizations Call Meeting in Albuquerque
Dear New Mexico Friends of Liberty:
Dave Batcheller, State Chair of the Constitution Party of New Mexico, has sent out a letter of invitation to different groups in a deliberate effort to build bridges of relationships and cooperation with others who share the same values and concerns.
Dave is a strong believer of strength in numbers and unity, meaning together we can accomplish much more than by standing or working alone for the restoration of liberty.
In order to take a first step, Dave is encouraging concerned citizens to a special meeting where together we can informally meet and discuss the need for and possibilities of networking together and complimenting each other’s efforts.
Saturday, March 10, 2007 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the Quality Inn and Suites (Sandia Room) 25 Hotel Circle, NE, Albuquerque (just north of I-40 on Eubank)
Some of the groups that have been invited are as follows:
America: Freedom to Fascism
Americans for Constitutional Enforcement
Citizens of the American Constitution
Constitution Party of New Mexico
John Birch Society
Minuteman Civil Defense Corps
The Bill of Rights Institute
These United States of America, Inc.
We The People
Dave states: Although I cannot predict at this point who all will come, I am inviting leaders from each of the groups represented above. I share this so that you might get a flavor for the potential of such a gathering.
Please let Dave know if you are able to make it to the meeting. You can either call Dave at 505-323-1124 or reach him by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Dave will be overjoyed to hear from you.
I know and have met with Dave on several occasions and in different settings. From the meetings I’ve had with Mr. Batcheller, I would classify Dave as top notch and just simply good people/person. He knows all too well the trouble that our country is in and has a deep desire to work with others in an attempt to turn this country around.
My suggestion to you: If you feel you have something to offer at the table (so to speak) please call/email Dave and ask him if there will be room for you, and your input. If there is any way possible I will be there myself. As you probably know by now, I have been working and traveling to Santa Fe in an attempt to get SJR5 out of the state to the U. S. Congress. The Democrats sided with the Republicans yesterday at 2:28 p.m. on the Senate Floor and shut down SJR5 for good.
Please do what you can in order to help Dave and America at this present time.
P.S.: Patriot Summit III, the Constitution Party of New Mexico’s annual state party convention, will be held at the same location, but a start time of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Special Guest Speaker will be Scott Bradley, CP 2006 Candidate for U.S. Senate from Utah.
Please contact Dave at 505-323-1124 or email at email@example.com if you plan on attending either/both of these meetings.
