Is This Treason? You decide.

Is this treason?

Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein from California released the Intelligence Committee’s report on the treatment of detainees. An important question is, was the release treason? In my opinion it is. Sec. 3 of the U.S. Constitution defines treason as: “levying War against [the people of the United States], or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

Just because Feinstein is a Senator and chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee is no shield from her treasonous act. Releasing the information dragged our nation down into the muck of negative public opinion and exposed CIA operatives and our troops to even more hostile reaction from out enemies and provided them aid and comfort. They are comfortable knowing the Democrats in the Senate are their unseen allies.

Although many of Feinstein’s ilk, ie liberal, progressive Democrats, applaud her actions, I see it as a purely political, treacherous act of hostility toward our nation and our military. She should be tried for treason.

Some of the torture techniques revealed in the report include; mock executions, waterboarding, detainees stripped and chained to a concrete floor, others deprived of sleep for up to 180 hours. Wow! That really competes with the treatment Americans are subjected to at the hands of our enemies including the threat of decapitation.

Ask any survivors of the notorious Hanoi Hilton what torture really is.

Some may think a trial for treason is too harsh a judgment for Feinstein, but ponder for a few minutes what our government has done to others in similar cases. Others such as Julian Assagne who also released documents some said were harmful to the United States and some of our allies. Vice President Joe Biden called Assagne a “terrorist.” Four people, including Tom Flanagan, a former aide to the Canadian prime minister even called for his assassination or execution.

Edward Snowden, an Australian, became famous when he revealed himself as the source of the 2013 news that the National Security Agency (NSA) had a wide-ranging surveillance operation in the United States and elsewhere – that the federal government was gathering data from citizens without their consent.

Snowden was driven from country to country and finally ended up in Russia in order to escape the wrath of the U.S. federal government. He was given asylum for one year and has since applied for Russian citizenship. He is currently living in Ecuador and has been given political asylum there.

I’m sure glad Feinstein wasn’t a Senator during WWII when we were trying to keep secret our invasion plans for Normandy, France, and the details of the nuclear bomb drops on Japan.

Dianne Feinstein deserves treatment at least equal to that given Assange and Snowden. They were outsiders looking in. She was an insider trusted with secrets, some of which should have been kept secret. She is no friend to America.

The Treason, Ignorance and Betrayal Continue

The Constitution is no longer being chipped away along with individual freedom and liberty – it is being destroyed in large chunks, right before our eyes.

Four of the more notable incidents happened in June, 2012.

1. The president, who took an oath to faithfully execute the laws of our republic, brazenly announced he will not enforce certain immigration laws. “Last Friday, Obama instructed the Department of Homeland Security to stop deporting illegal immigrants who entered the US before age 16, have lived here for at least five years, and are enrolled in high school, hold high school diplomas, or are military veterans in good standing. To be exempt from deportation, immigrants also must be younger than 30 and have clean criminal records.” SOURCE

2. The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday struck down key parts of an Arizona law that sought to deter illegal immigration, but let stand a controversial provision allowing police to check a person’s immigration status while enforcing other laws.

In a decision sure to ripple across the political landscape in a presidential election year, the court’s 5-3 ruling upheld the (assumed) authority of the federal government to set immigration policy and laws.

“The National Government has significant power to regulate immigration,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in the majority opinion. “Arizona may have understandable frustrations with the problems caused by illegal immigration while that process continues, but the State may not pursue policies that undermine federal law.” SOURCE

The courts position is, however, decidedly radical and unconstitutional.

We are constantly told that people illegally entering the country are undocumented immigrants and the federal government has jurisdiction over all matters concerning immigration. This is not the case. In fact, the word immigration does not appear any where in the Constitution. The only general power granted to the federal government concerning aliens, in times of peace, is the power “to establish a uniform rule of naturalization.” This provision was inserted because there was, in the words of James Madison, “a dissimilarity in the rules of naturalization” among the States. By vesting this power in the federal government, as opposed to the individual States, the Founders ensured that the qualifications for becoming a citizen would be uniform throughout the several States. If the rule were not uniform, one State could impose a different standard than another State or discriminate against immigrants from certain nations. No other power is granted to the federal government concerning this subject.

The federal government also claims the duty of securing the borders of these United States rests solely with the federal government. The Constitution states: “[t]he United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion….” [See Article IV, Section 4] If aliens entering into a State from a foreign country constitute an “invasion,” then the federal government is constitutionally mandated by this provision to intervene and protect the State.

The Constitution grants the federal government the power to fulfill this duty in one of two ways. It can either use the military, or Congress can call forth the militias of the several States to repel the invasion. [See Article 1, Section 8, Clause 15] Once Congress calls forth the militia, the President, as commander in chief, has the power to direct the movement of these forces. Thus, the President could constitutionally send the State militias to any State to repel the “invasion” by illegal aliens. However, if illegal aliens pouring into the States by the millions do not constitute an “invasion,” then the federal government lacks the constitutional authority to intervene and prevent the States from protecting their borders.  SOURCE

4. And how can we forget the betrayal committed by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, when the court, headed by Roberts, declared the patently unconstitutional health care law, Obamacare, constitutional.

We must now face the harsh trtuth that the objectives of communism (socialism/progressivism/radical left) are being steadily advanced because many of us do not recognize the means used to advance them. … The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a Conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst. Former head of the FBI, J. Edgar Hoover

Along those same lines Hoover said: “The Communist threat from without must not blind us to the Communist threat from within. The latter is reaching into the very heart of America through its espionage agents and a cunning, defiant, and lawless communist party, which is fanatically dedicated to the Marxist cause of world enslavement and destruction of the foundations of our republic.”

We must never forget the fact that the states existed before there was a central, or federal government. The federal government was created by the states and was designed to be the servant of the states and people. Somewhere along the line treason, ignorance and betrayal have reversed the roles. The states must use the 10th Amendment and nullification to again bring the federal government under control.
