“Opening minds and angravating liberals since 2001”
“I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.”
Genesis 3:19 John 3:16
My Friends and Fellow Sheeple:
PREFACE: Please bear in mind as you read this “Pearl of a Discounted Price” that this issue and the letter by the Senate both would be unnecessary if this Maladministration was 1 /10,000th as honest and transparent as they claimed they would be during the campaign. Bear in mind EVERY campaign promise was broken except for destroying the Country. Had Biff and WTLF not entered into secret negotiations with the enemy, had Biff and the rest of the Left not treated Bibi like a red-headed step-child, had Biff and the rest of his pinions been honest, forthright and at least giving the appearance of having the best interests of my Country in mind, as Woody Woodpecker said “…then none of this ever would have happened.”
Why “flying paisley unicorns?”
Because they are like co-inky-dinks.
They do not exist.
I have written extensively about so-called “coincidences.” Particularly in politics where they are gen’ly as unrelated as pulling the trigger on a rifle and a bullet flying through the air.
“So, what is troubling Precious today?” you should be wary to ask.
The word is “treason.”
The “New York Daily News”, which written on about a third grade reading level, proclaimed “Traitors” on the cover under a litany of lies from the left.
The esteemed loony Socialist Senator from the People’s Republic of Vermont, Bernie Sanders, has instigated one of the two known petitions to try 47 Republican Senators for treason. (He is truly a nutjob. Please, Senator, PLEASE, feel free to sue me.)
On the White House page there is a petition page also calling for treason charges to be preferred against the “Gang of 47.”
The slack-jawed America-hating monkeys at MorOn.Org are begging for money for a TV ad for some nefarious reason. They still have their hemp woven panties in a wad over Bibi’s visit to Congress. (If you were not sure if you were for it, when you see who was against it that should qualify your decision.)
The jabbering acerebralbots (a just-coined neologism referring to automatons without a brain. Not necessarily redundant in this citation) on PMS/LSD are drooling all over themselves and each other to see who can say “treason” more than the others and to come up with more and more ridiculous reasons why.
Speaking of drooling, Dr. Demento himself, Ex-Gov. Howeird Dean (“The Doctor is in…sane”) went off on some litany of non sequiturs that indicted recently installed Sen. Cotton and the rest of the gang for treason. For some reason he said that as Cotton was only in the Senate for two months that Cotton was unqualified to make any serious statements.
And Dean knows this because he spent how much time in the Senate? Anyone, anyone? McFly? Spicoli? Yes, you, Muse, how long was Dean in the Senate? Biff, for that matter?
Oh, well the Muse advises, between colorful epithets and descriptives, that Dean was NEVER in the Senate.
All of a sudden, out of nowhere, on a number or cable stations, newspapers and talking (brainless) heads simultaneously come the unique use of the words “traitor” and “treason.”
That is what I call a coincidence!
Er, no, that is what I call info being fed to the SRMFM by Media Matters who, of course, get their marching orders from the Left Wing of a building just south of Maryland…
Let’s ignore the media, as we should. Let’s look at the charges, shall we? Do! Let’s!!
The Logan Act: 1 Stat. 613, January 30, 1799. Codifed at 18 U.S.C. § 953 (2004)
§ 953. Private correspondence with foreign governments.
Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply himself, or his agent, to any foreign government, or the agents thereof, for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.
Now, let’s assume that the actions of the Senators fall under the Logan Act. Is it treason? Not by a long shot. Treason, as limned under 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.
The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corruption of blood, or forfeiture except during the life of the person attainted.
I am soooooo sorry. I am getting ahead of myself! Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa!
You see, Biff and WTLF are in some kind of negotiations with the Iranians over nukes. There is no reason to expect that the dunderhead Kerry has anyone’s best interest in mind, especially America’s. What is expected to happen is that there will serious negotiations, Iran will cede nothing, WTLF will grab his own ankles and Biff will sign an Executive Order making the deal a law.
Senator Cotton drafted an open letter to the leadership of Iran. It is not classified, it is not hidden, it not code word protected, close hold or anything at all. Pretty much the exact opposite of what Kerry is doing.
The letter basically is a short civics lesson in that any treaty must be ratified by Congress and that if a president issues an Executive Order it can be overturned by Congress upon his leaving office.
That is it in a nutshell. No threats, no warnings, nothing other than pretty much any deal can be reversed in a few years.
That does not rise to the level of treason. In fact the maximum penalty for violation of the Logan Act is three years in a federal correctional facility.
Some, not that many, years back, when W was President, Nasty Pelosi went to Damascus to “discuss” with the leadership of Syria various and sundry things that were not only not in her purview but she had been warned against doing such by the Bush Administration.
Needless to say, consistent with everything else she does, she screwed the pooch and made things ten times worse than they were before. Unless, of course, that was the plan.
Now, let’s talk.
Writing a letter explaining the machinery of our government is no crime. Irrespective of to whom a letter is sent.
What Pelosi did by ignoring a directive from the President and sitting in discussions with the leadership of a hostile county is most certainly in violation of the Logan Act at the very least.
If, and only if, it can be proved that Nasty Pelosi went there specifically to knock the wheels of the cart that we were working on, then you have treason. That carries a severe and permanent punishment.
Now, how do I know this “treason” thing is a crapshow?
Simple, look at who is complaining. All the nutcases, peaceniks, anti-nukes (?), Anti-Semites, Anti-Americans and the like. Virtually all the Lefties in Congress (recall: no longer are they Dems) up to and including Joey McMensa.
Now, that is to be expected. But guess who else is ticked off at the Republican Senators? Anyone?
Or her, good guess however.
Here is one for you: Javad Zarif.
Who is this chap?
He is Iran’s Foreign Minister.
He is mad. Both definitions. Insane and angravated.
He posted a response to the letter that deconstructs it to twist the words to come to his benefit. (See link at every end.)
Imagine Mamoru Shigemitsu (the Japanese Foreign Minister who signed the instrument of surrender on behalf of the Emperor ending WWII) saying: “Ah, yes, Generalsan. I do not like this, we need to change that, we won’t do the other thing” and so on.
I am fairly sure MacArthur would have said, “Hey Mo. That is fine. Just hang on a second as we need to back this boat out of your harbor.” When the minister would ask why MacArthur could say “We don’t want to get any radiation on us when we level Tokyo in a few minutes.”
I am sure that the minister would see the wisdom of MacArthur and come to Jesus.
But, we have WTLF playing footsie with the Iranian madman as they cry on each other’s shoulders how much they hate Bibi.
So, we are negotiating with someone we can bomb back to the 7th Century and we are being scolded by him? Really?
The greater problem is that the gum’mint is not telling this guy to go pound sand and the greatest problem is WTLF seems to agree with him.
To recap. The Senators sent Iran a letter basically “learning them up” about the way our government (should) work and the Left is al a dither.
Much ado about nothing, this is yet another diversion.
Keep yer power dry.
Enjoy your weekend. If you are starting your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations early, be safe, don’t drink and drive and eat sensibly, a charra.
Mise le meas and Slainte!
