Treason

In perhaps the most important op-ed published in my lifetime, Thomas Sowell perfectly describes Barack Obama and the slow erosion of our rights that we in the blogoshpere have been crowing about for years.

The America that has flourished for more than two centuries is being quietly but steadily dismantled by the Obama administration, during the process of dealing with particular issues.

I don’t think that can be emphasized enough.

He goes on to say:

If laws passed by the elected representatives of the people can be simply over-ruled unilaterally by whoever is in the White House, then we are no longer a free people, choosing what laws we want to live under.

When a president can ignore the plain language of duly passed laws, and substitute his own executive orders, then we no longer have “a government of laws, and not of men” but a president ruling by decree, like the dictator in some banana republic.

I’ll not waste your time or sully his words by trying to add to them here. Professor Sowell’s article deserves to be read in it’s entirety.

Barack Obama And Ruling By Presidential Decree

Hat Tip – Mark Levin

UPDATE: Further thoughts can be found at TCN: Obama Seizes and Congress Cedes Ever More Power… while the band plays on.

From Jared Law at The 9.12 Project:

The so-called ‘National Popular Vote’ movement is, indeed, a threat to the electoral college, a wise, inspired system our Founding Fathers set up to help provide yet another firewall to a dictator taking control of America before we had a chance to react. California has already completed the process to flip the bird at the Founding Fathers and the Constitution.

Phyllis Schlafly:

A plot is afoot to change our constitutional form of government by ditching the Electoral College. John Anderson, Birch Bayh and John Buchanan, three losers who were defeated in the 1980 Reagan landslide, are scheming to change our Constitution without complying with the amendment process.

Our Constitution requires that a president be elected by a majority of votes in the Electoral College, with each state’s vote weighted based on its population. But some who took an oath to defend our Constitution are plotting to undermine its essential structure by a compact among as few as eleven of the most populous states.

The plan of this Campaign for the National Popular Vote (NPV) is to get states with at least 270 votes in the Electoral College to enact identical bills requiring their own electors to ignore the winner of their state’s election and cast all their state’s ballots for the candidate who the state believes received more popular votes than the other candidates nationwide, even if he fails to win a majority of the popular vote.

Read the whole thing. Then, contact your state and national senators and representatives. If they sneak this through, we will lose the republic.

UPDATE:

Just saw this from Professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection:

National Popular Vote debacle looming

Our president thinks he’s a hypnotist, and why wouldn’t he? He obviously put half the population under some kind of spell to convince them to vote for him. How else was he able to get all those folks to cast aside the glaringly obvious truth of his hatred for America and stated desire to change it into a communistic style of government?

Every other word he utters is a contradiction of the one before or a set-up for the lie to come after. Who in their right mind can listen to absolutely preposterous, convoluted notions like “job-killing tax cuts” and come away with the assurance that the man has our best interest at heart? Those are the words spoken by a person who knows he is doing wrong and will boldly beat you over the head with the fact that he’s doing it. He thinks he’s the guy that can sell igloos to Eskimos or the Brooklyn Bridge to a New Yorker.

He also wants US to believe that 80% of us want to pay more taxes but we aren’t buying, Mister President. A growing majority of US knows you for the charlatan you are.

Barack Hussein Obama is the epitome of everything the Democratic Party and the Progressive/Communist/Socialist elite have been striving for since Woodrow Wilson occupied the office Obama continues to disgrace. Compare Marxist ideology to the modern Democrat Party ideals and you will find similarities too numerous to ignore.

Barack Hussein Obama is not your typical tax and spend democrat either. He’s much, much worse on an exponential scale. He’s a T & S D on steroids with nefarious ulterior motives who has the cooperation of a compliant media and a plethora of crony politicians eager to give him more power.

I’ve said before, and I think it becomes more apparent every day, Barack Hussein Obama is committing treason against the USA by using American social programs against the very economic engine that made those programs possible in the first place; all in order to overwhelm the system with ever increasing demands and thereby collapsing the economy and ushering in a new type of government. This method was conceived by Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven and is known as the Cloward-Piven Strategy. Its stated goal is to achieve political and social change through orchestrated crisis. It is out and out economic warfare and is especially dangerous when combined with the Communist/Socialist agenda exposed by Iowa Rep. Curtis Bowers. It is an evil that strikes directly at the heart of natural law, liberty and America as envisioned by our founding fathers and must be passionately opposed wherever it is discovered.

For Liberty, ‘bot.

They will side with anyone or anything in their quest for more control, even if it means partnering with known enemies. I mean, I know the left are all about the free love thing but c’mon, the Muslim Brotherhood? Really? Do they actually know who they’re in bed with? Do they even care? What about that whole ‘separation of church and state’ mantra they like to throw around at parties? Isn’t embracing Islam in the White House a bit of hypocrisy?

I gotta warn you though; those beer goggles can be a bit of a bummer in the morning, especially when you find out you went to bed with a ten and woke up with a two that wants to chop your head off.

I’ve said before that I believe Obama to be a muslim. He’s said so himself. It is also a known fact that islam allows and even encourages muslims to be deceitful in order to infiltrate and convert their enemies so, for him to lie to achieve his aim of the submission of America to islam is not inconsistent with his religion.

Does anyone else see a double standard here? What kind of god encourages its followers to be untruthful, for any reason? Shouldn’t a righteous god insist his followers be above reproach in everything, above all, proselytizing?

My God does.

9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

islam’s sanctioning of deceit is just another example of the false prophet mohammed and his false god allah and their false, barbaric religion of blasphemy against the one true God of Abraham.

John Quincy Adams, the sixth President of the United States, knew of islam’s barbaric nature perhaps better than we. As noted by Dave Miller, Ph.D. in his article for Apologetics Press titled “John Quincy Adams on Islam,” he states:

No Christian would deny that many Christians in history have violated the precepts of Christ by mistreating others and even committing atrocities in the name of Christ. However, Adams rightly observes that one must go against Christian doctrine to do so. Not so with Islam—since violence is sanctioned:

The fundamental doctrine of the Christian religion, is the extirpation of hatred from the human heart. It forbids the exercise of it, even towards enemies. There is no denomination of Christians, which denies or misunderstands this doctrine. All understand it alike—all acknowledge its obligations; and however imperfectly, in the purposes of Divine Providence, its efficacy has been shown in the practice of Christians, it has not been wholly inoperative upon them. Its effect has been upon the manners of nations. It has mitigated the horrors of war—it has softened the features of slavery—it has humanized the intercourse of social life. The unqualified acknowledgement of a duty does not, indeed, suffice to insure its performance. Hatred is yet a passion, but too powerful upon the hearts of Christians. Yet they cannot indulge it, except by the sacrifice of their principles, and the conscious violation of their duties. No state paper from a Christian hand, could, without trampling the precepts of its Lord and Master, have commenced by an open proclamation of hatred to any portion of the human race. The Ottoman lays it down as the foundation of his discourse (Blunt, 29:300, emp. added).

The Founders were forthright in their assessment of the nature and teachings of Islam and the Quran. Americans and their political leaders would do well to take a sober look at history. To fail to do so will be catastrophic.

So, how’s that whole dhimmitude thing workin’ out for ya?

UPDATE: Linked at REPUBLICAN REDEFINED, Zilla of the Resistance, Sentry Journal, Conservative Hideout, Eye of Polyphemus.

Some would like us to entertain the idea that Barack Hussein Obama is an idiot. ‘He is just inexperienced.’ ‘Give him a chance, he’ll get it right eventually,’ they might say. Or some would say there is a puppet-master lurking in an anteroom of the White House, feeding the teleprompter.

Some would say such things, and they might be right in most cases. But the larger truth is, there can be no doubt of Barack Hussein Obama’s motives. He despises America and everything it stands for. His actions reveal his plan even though his words leave you with whatever impression you want to take away from his convoluted double speak.

Even if someone or some other force is at work directing his actions, the actions and their consequences still lay at his feet.

A complicit media and congress have allowed him to do so much damage  to our constitution both through unconstitutional policy set by unelected appointees and passage of unjust, unconstitutional law, that it cannot be interpreted as anything but an attack on America.

I will offer a caveat though, lest someone say I’m being too harsh, let’s give credit where credit is due. While Obama is surely inexperienced at running a country; he’s doing a damn good job of running one into the ground.

I’ll also grant you this: the republicans and democrats alike have spent us into a hole of almost insurmountable debt over the last decades, weakening our resolve with ever increasing taxation while indoctrinating our people with their Utopian nightmare through the public schools and academia alike. However damaging that was, nothing compares to the onslaught of the socialistic, traitorous Democratic Party in charge of the legislature the past two years. It’s as if the last hundred years of failed social experimentation with the welfare state was just a set-up for the final blows to be administered by Obama, Pelosi and Reid and their collectivist, statist, sycophants.

“… a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost is lost forever. When the People once surrender their share in the Legislature, and their Right of defending the Limitations upon the Government, and of resisting every Encroachment upon them, they can never regain it.“ John Adams, letter to wife Abigail 1775

A Constitutional Scholar vs. the Constitution:

Barack Hussein Obama and certain members of congress, with malice and forethought, are committing acts of treason in the process of ‘Fundamentally Transforming the United States of America.’

It is a fact that Obama and the university where he lectured labeled him a constitutional scholar. I would think that an expert on the constitution is intimately aware of the limitations placed on the federal government by the constitution and as such, Obama has violated his oath of office merely by signing the unconstitutional Obamacare into law because it so violates the right of a citizen with its intrusive nature and the individual mandate to purchase a product. The law is plainly outside the constitution’s limitation of the federal government’s lawful reach, not to mention the underhandedness that transpired in the passage through the American throat.

During the choke down of Obamacare, they repeatedly ignored the wishes of the majority, bribed the bill through congress in closed door meetings, stretched and broke the rules of the House and Senate to pass the bill and once passed and signed; they now continue to ignore federal judges who have ruled Obamacare unconstitutional and unenforceable by continuing to implement it!

As an example of his disdain for the rule of law and of his attack on the American economy, Obama ignored, and still ignores, a federal judge’s ruling to lift the Gulf of Mexico drilling moratorium, in place since the BP Oil spill causing many oil rigs to relocate to waters strangely friendly to Obama’s communist dictator friends such as Hugo Chaves. In fact, another judge ruled just last week and ordered the administration to resume issuing drilling permits.

I won’t be holding my breath.

Oh, and don’t even think about coal.

Obamacare is just a part of the plan.

Even if this man were an idiot, he could not have stumbled into the perfect storm of his dream for ever expanding, unfunded, entitlements, his war on America’s oil and energy industry and his war on the private sector of America. These are part of a larger plan. He told us during the campaign his plan was “The Fundamental Transformation of the United States of America” and he has proceeded to do just that.

How’s that transformation workin’ out for ya?

I contend that the latest $3.73 trillion budget proposal is more of the same. A continuation of the Cloward – Piven strategy aimed at burying the US in her own debt with the Federal Reserve playing right along by printing more money, monetizing our debt and alienating our allies, which also has the added benefit of producing the opposite effect: emboldening or enemies. Case in point: the Muslim Brotherhood’s current subversive dealings in the Middle East.

Neat how that works, isn’t it?

For the uninitiated: Cloward – Piven Strategy as summed up by David Horowitz:

The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

Are Obama and his ilk knowingly perpetrating acts of treason?

If Obama and the democrats are indeed maliciously orchestrating the collapse of our economy by placing increasingly overburdening demands on the system, and I believe they are, then they are in violation of their oaths to protect this country and are guilty of treason against our constitution and the citizens of this great nation.

TREASON

1. the offense of acting to overthrow one’s government or to harm or kill its sovereign.

2. a violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or to one’s state.

3. the betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery.

or, from the Legal Dictionary:

the offense of attempting to overthrow the government of one’s country or of assisting its enemies in war; specifically : the act of levying war against the United States or adhering to or giving aid and comfort to its enemies by one who owes it allegiance

TRAITOR

a person who is guilty of treason or treachery, in betraying friends, country, a cause or trust, etc.

I contend that the Obama administration has been knowingly and willfully ignoring the limitations placed on the federal government and thus have shattered their allegiance to the constitution they swore an oath to uphold.

The president’s oath of office reads:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

In my opinion Obama is, to the best of his ability, destroying, attacking, and assaulting the Constitution of the United States, exactly opposite of what he swore to do.

To those that would call me a conspiracy theorist I would counter with this: It doesn’t take a conspiracy when all the active parties are in accord with their ambitions and in this case, McCarthy was right! There were communists in our government and in fact, they are still there, only now, they’ve made it to the White House and a large part of the Legislature and have infiltrated most of the bureaucracy and are at this very moment systematically destroying the foundations of our republic!

A bloodless coup is still a coup.

Now that I’ve got the rant at least partially out of my system, lets, for the sake of clarity, examine some definitions of Treason as they apply in this case.

The U.S. Constitution, Article III, Section. 3.

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

Cloward-Piven Stategy as pointed out by James Simpson in his article for the American Thinker titled “Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis” is economic warfare designed to bring about a specific end: The Fundamental Transformation of the United States of America.

It cannot be interpreted as anything else.

TREASON

1. the offense of acting to overthrow one’s government or to harm or kill its sovereign.

Barack Hussein Obama, by employing the Cloward-Piven Stategy is, by definition, attempting to overthrow the government from the inside. To remake America into something it was never intended to be, in fact, to remake it into precisely the opposite of its original intent.

2. a violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or to one’s state.

When Obama took the oath of office, he swore an oath to defend the Constitution and almost immediately afterward proceeded to ignore it and dismantle it. He has done so from the highest position of power in the land and therefore has violated his oath of allegiance to The United States and to protect the Constitution.

3. the betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery.

Obama has betrayed the trust placed in him by the people of the United States through the office of the Presidency and has attempted to conceal the enormity of his malicious intent through the use of subterfuge and deceit with the aid of many in Congress and the media.

This is not just a clash of ideology.

Barack Hussein Obama and his comrades have committed, and continue to commit, treason against the United States of America in any and every definition of the word. There has never been a better example.

These crimes must be tried and, when found guilty; the offending parties must be punished. We must do this to dissuade future leaders from following their despicable example before these actions become the norm.

We must prosecute these criminals in order to reassert our rights as Americans, as a free people and as rulers of our own destiny.

*

Today, we celebrate the birth of the Father of our Country, who, at this very moment is spinning in his grave at jet engine speeds while the country he helped create is dismantled and spat upon from the seat he himself once occupied.

My sincere apologies, Mr. President, we have failed you and ourselves. We have failed to keep watch. We have let the dragon in the gate. Now we must battle him in our own front yard.

God help us all.
