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.


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


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.


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.

    I’ve been wondering from the beginning why that man is not already in custody and on trial for that very charge. And why has at least some Republican not brought the idea up in Congress.

    • robot February 21, 2011 at 2:44 pm

      Not sure why, Gorges. I think it may be because the charge is so heinous that they are reluctant to use it. Then again, as Frank said in his comment, once you start issuing that indictment, the charge could get spread around a bit. It may also be because they don’t hold the Senate, which, I assume would be where the trial would be held, but I don’t know for sure.

  • Frank Koza February 21, 2011 at 6:08 am

    I wouldn’t quite call any of it ‘treason’. He’s just a hard-core social organizer and union lovin’ type of guy and why not, since unions have made up the core of Democratic party support for some time now.

    He doesn’t despise America. He may despise conservatives and libertarians or at least some of them and their ideas. Big difference.

    I don’t know about this ‘un-Constitutionality’ of Obama-care either as being interpreted by several courts right now, but I’m not a legal expert and I sure don’t understand the nuance between exactly what the difference is between government forcing you to buy a product or service and just plain out taxing you and then buying crap you don’t need with your money for you which they already do all the time.

    Remember, Herman Cain had pretty much the same issue with Clinton over his earlier version of socialized health insurance – ….and I sure do understand the huge difference between health insurance and health care. The government cannot provide health care (well, maybe Dr Ron Paul can provide some, but not many others), they say they’ll provide us all ‘free’ insurance (for a ‘small’ donation) to help pay our medical bills and they’ll decide which procedures they’ll pay for or not.

    Of course there are communists and socialists in our government, but it’s what democracy is all about and there’s nothing you can do about it IF they are duly elected to represent those who voted for them. It doesn’t mean we have to let them have their way. We just have to elect the right people to counter them.

    Shouldn’t nearly all current and past members of Congress (except Ron Paul, of course) be held accountable and tried for treason for “knowingly and willfully ignoring the limitations placed on the federal government”?

    After seeing this fiasco with Obama sticking his nose where it doesn’t belong in a purely internal state matter as is going on in Wisconsin right now, I’m starting to think that Obama is EXACTLY what this country needed at exactly this time. I love your comment saying that he’s inexperienced at running a country, but he’s doing a damn good job at running one into the ground. Yes, that’s exactly what we needed, a president who weighs in on every local or state matter such as the police arresting his friend Gates to leading a campaigning party/eulogy in the wake of the Arizona tragedy, to now sticking his nose into Wisconsin’s budget affairs, and a president who spends taxpayers’ money like a drunken sailor on shore leave.

    So keep in mind, his antics have been very effective in waking up the nascent revolution that we now affectionately know as the Tea Party which is scaring the hell out of everyone who has been sucking on the government teat for decades. He has also effectively woken up state governments to start taking their powers back that they abdicated to the Feds years and years ago. He is what we needed. It just doesn’t get much better than that.

    How about this? We can start calling it treason if after the election where he gets his arse handed to him, he refuses to vacate the ‘house that Americans built’ peacefully. Deal? ;)

    And on the much brighter side, look at the stars starting to shine like Chris Christie, Alan West, and Scott Walker. Man, I’m starting to have real hope for real change that I haven’t had in a long, long time.

    Keep the faith, Bot.

    • robot February 21, 2011 at 3:07 pm

      Hi Frank, no deal. :) While I admire your optimism, I have to look at the evidence and go where it leads. Did you check out the American Thinker articles on Cloward-Piven?

      These are serious times and should be dealt with as such. I can agree with you on Obama being the impetus for a new conservative awakening but I won’t back away from the charge.

      While I also think there has been several unconstitutional laws passed in the last hundred years that would qualify, this is the first case that I am aware of where a sitting President is following a clearly defined strategy for destroying our economy. One might make the case for misguided intentions in earlier cases but not here.
      However, that being said, getting Obama or two people in his administration to admit to it would be highly unlikely.

      Here are those links, in case you missed them.

      Have a good day, my friend.

      • Frank Koza February 22, 2011 at 2:46 pm

        Yes, I’ve known of Piven’s writings for quite sometime. She has some good points, and she has some horrendous ones. She has the right to speak her mind, whether good or bad.

        I’m starting to get to know yours a little at a time, and you already wrote about all this and identified the root causes of the problems we face in “Apathy, Willful Ignorance and Corruption – What More Do We Need?”

        Again, I propose that this is exactly what we needed. The affliction has reached a level where it has finally triggered the immune system of this nation and it’s getting more engaged in fighting off the virus right now. The apathy is waning, people are reading and learning, and the newly awakened are starting to stand up to the corruption. You called it, and it’s getting there. :)

        Look at this:

        All I can say is Yay!!! and Bout damn time!

        Have faith, my friend. Liberty ain’t dead yet, and contrary to the opinions of some, the death of liberty is never permanent. It’s one thing that has gotten resurrected from the dead time and again throughout the course of human history.

  • LibertyAtStake February 21, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    My view is this administration’s demonstrated pattern of “willfully ignoring the limitations placed on the federal government” will soon enough make the case for impeachment, regardless of treasonous intent. iow (with apologies to Mr. Belvedere) – Proving A is A obviates proving Treason. I also think the pressure cooker in Madison, and the civil collison to result over the deficit, is about to cause Barry to step on his crank watergate-style. Then “stupid or treasonous?” will merely be an academic question.

    It is infuriating that the American people will not believe what he has told us – what he has slammed up the sides of heads all across this nation. Nor do they believe his background, his communist mentor, his communist father’s words which he read over and over, his mother’s infatuation with Muslim men, or more simply Alinski’s Rules for Radicals. One look at how he taught Chicago women to beat down the doors of city hall to overwhelm the system until they received what they and he thought they were due. And of course, Cloward and Piven.

    Very indepth article. You are spot-on.

  • Kid February 21, 2011 at 8:16 pm

    Robot, you have covered this Extremely well. I agree 100% with all of it.

    When I call obama and his wife imbeciles, it is because they don’t have a clue what makes a country great. It is easy to see their actions are strongly motivated by anti-white racism.

    I would add that I read an article recently about how China is playing us since we owe them so much or simply because obama favors China’s model. I think there is more evil to come.

    Great writeup bot! If you haven’t already, you really need to read “The Roots of Obama’s Rage” by Dinesh D’Souza. Incredible, incredible insight into Obama’s history, his influences, his background. If despot ever came with an owners manual, this is it. Shines a light in the empty, dark areas of Obama’s mind. I highly recommend it.

    If you’ve already read it, ignore the above.
