18 U.S. Code § 2381 – Treason
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
The REPUBLICAN controlled congress has confirmed that Russia, under the direct orders of Vladimir Putin interfered with the 2016 election.
That means Russia has committed an act of espionage against the sovereignty of the United States. That is an act of war.
It is a war that has been ongoing, and while it is called a “cold war” I think it is something else entirely. A new type of war, a cyber war.
Timothy Snyder of the Guardian argues that the U.S. lost the cyber war in 2016. That Trump’s upcoming military parade is not to honor American troops, but instead to celebrate the surrender of the United States to Russia. To quote the title of Mr. Snyder’s latest book, we are on “The Road to Unfreedom.”
And now, the Trump regime has the opportunity to permanently change the structure of the American Government. Any Supreme Court nominee of this regime is a disaster for American liberty. His nomination of Brett M. Kavanaugh, while the Potemkin President and his regime is under multiple investigations, is a torpedo in the water and we stand the decks of the ship it is aimed at.
Any senator who agrees to confirm this nominee given the current environment must also be considered in league with a regime that has sold the country out to one of our greatest rivals. They are either traitors, or they are suborning treason.
Kavanaugh’s bizarre noiton that a sitting president cannot be subpoenaed is contradicted by 247 years of case law and the Constitution itself – that position alone should disqualify him rom any judgeship as a fatal misunderstanding of both the letter and the spirit of the law, as well as an utter lack of good sense. The article in which he declares this bizzare position can be found here:
Separation of Powers During the Forty-Fourth Presidency and Beyond.
Even so, it doesn’t even matter what political stance Kavanaugh, or any other nominee has at this point. Trump could nominate the saintliest of saints and it would still be innappropriate for the Senate to confirm, or even accept the nominee. Again, the Potemkin President and his regime is under multiple investigations, including collusion with a foreign power to throw the election of a U.S. President!
Any confirmation of a nominee of the Potemkin President is a white flag. It is admitting defeat to the nation that poisoned the 2016 election.
We will need to look for blame at some point. The guilty parties, there will be many, must be taken to account for their crimes against the Shining City on the Hill. Obama’s weak foreign policy and lack of backbone in dealing with Putin’s adventurism. Every Congressperson and Senator for the past 20…no…80 years that has focused more on the needs of their party and ignored the needs of the country and the warning signs that should have been obvious to those in the know. The majority of faux-citizens, who, comfortable in their birthright, remain at home allowing the government to drift further, and further to the brink of destruction. Many, many more….
Benjamin Franklin upon leaving the Constitutional Convention when asked what kind of government we’d have responded; “A Republic, if you can keep it!”
But right now, at this very moment, every patriotic American, every liberty loving person in the country, citizen or not, has a choice to make. Right now. Do we continue down the road and become a vassal state to the Rodina? Or do we take our country back and continue working towards the ideal – imperfectly executed – that John Winthrop expressed to his Puritans in 1630?
Are we to return to our colonial status under a different master?
OR do we try to become the Shining City on the Hill.
Either way, the eyes of the world are upon us.
