Skip to comments.Obama [the Kenyan] and the Espionage Act
Posted on 12/22/2008 7:35:37 PM PST by solfour
In a World Net Daily article by Richard Cummings, concerning Jonathan Pollard who was convicted under the Espionage Acts in passing information along to a foreign government, namely the Israeli state, WND has stumbled upon something they have not put together in Barack Obama is guilty in two espionage acts equal to Jonathan Pollard who now sits in federal prison.
Mr. Obama has been noted in WND articles of negotiating and assisting the "Palestinians" before the election. Articles online report that the Colombians were being dealt with by Obama operatives in negotiating policy before he was elected.
Mr. Obama though chiefly had direct communication in information, finances and what appears intelligence information with his Kenya cousin, Raila Odinga. In this, Mr. Obama fabricated the "change Kenya can believe in" genesis statement in bringing down the sitting Kenyan government in favor of his cousin, Mr. Odinga in the same pre campaign strategy he utilized in the United States. Mr. Odinga did not succeed to be President of Kenya, but in riots and ethnic cleansing which involved mass murders he did achieve the granted office of Prime Minister.
In the financial offering, Mr. Obama assisted Mr. Odinga in his American tour via front sources in raising $1 million dollars for Mr. Odinga.
In the intelligence bracket of the Espionage Act, a report by the Washington Times, strangely quotes Mr. Odinga as setting policy for the military removal of President Robert Mugabe, the Marxist thug of Zimbabwe Rhodesia. As Mr. Odinga has no military capable of invading another African state, this indicates promises were made by Mr. Obama for his illegal support for Mr. Odinga to use Kenya as an operational base to attack Zimbabwe in a greater global African objective. In addition, there is the matter of Jerome Corsi which is documented on World Net Daily to have been kidnapped by Raila Odinga on an investigative trip there before the elections which almost caused his death, in order to silence Mr. Corsi.
All of the above are a United States citizen, in negotiations illegally with foreign governments or entities, enlisting funds to change governments, linked to criminal acts of mass murder, sharing intelligence on future United States foreign policy and exchanging various funds, support to intelligence for that citizen's own purposes against the standing policies of the United States government.
That in short is espionage and Barack Hussein Obama is guilty of that espionage from Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to Prime Minister Raila Odinga to the Colombian Free Trade Deal to the Canadian NAFTA leak to Zbigniew Brzezinski flying to Syria under Rand Corporation negotiating deals for an upcoming Obama Administration.
If any citizen raised $1 million dollars for President Ahmadinejad of Iran, if any citizen flew to France and supported a Marxist cousin to topple Presiden't Sarkozy's government and then his cousin's allies locked people into a Church and burned them alive, if any citizen had a representative flying to North Korea promising them political agreements and if any citizen flew to Mexico and promised the Mexicans the American southwest if he was elected, they would be in Patrick Fitzgerald indictment hell right now, and yet, Barack Obama doing all of the espionage acts is continuing to walk around making policy which he has no authority to do until January 20th. Think of it if Mr. Obama had approached Vladamir Putin promising he could use Alaska as a staging area to invade Canada to overthrow the Canadian government in exchange for US policy and resources, as that is exactly what Mr. Obama's cousin Raila Odinga was hinting at, and exactly the policy which appears to be forming under Susan Rice of the United Nations behind Hillary Clinton's back.
Jonathan Pollard is a criminal who betrayed the United States in espionage acts far less than what Barack Obama has been betraying America over in the past years of his campaign push. Mr. Pollard had his day in court and it is time a United States Attorney did their job along with all those government agencies who have full knowledge of what Mr. Obama and his operatives have been informing, funding and promising illegally to foreign government.
The Espionage Acts have been broken by Mr. Obama. It is time Mr. Obama be indicted on multiple counts.
U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald or any other friend of the court either release Mr. Pollard for doing less than Mr. Obama or indict Mr. Obama for doing more than Mr. Pollard ever dreamed.
Or after January 20th if he is not a natural born citizen.
Reaching? Time will tell.
They could have a video of Obama holding the pillow over ole Granny Toot’s face until she stopped squirming and they would just use it as an example of the One’s “mercy” of the elderly through euthanasia.
Nice try. The One (piss be upon him) will ascend to His place in the Capitol, and no one can stop Him.
beside being a posuer, he has committed felonies outlined in the Logan Act when he campaigned in Kenya as a sitting senator.
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.
1 Stat. 613, January 30, 1799, codified at 18 U.S.C. § 953 (2004).
It is certainly a violation of the Logan act but our GOP leaders are too wussy to have done anything about it.
“President Damien, the Obamination..
What are the chances, even if untrue, State Dept says they OK’ed it?
Oh, they will
Thanks, PhilDragoo. Good graphic, lol.
And Obama has no foreign allegiances that violates the U.S. Constitution besides the laws of the country? Uhuh.
Okay, where are the 0bama bots?? Come on in, the water’s fine!
They here yet?
No? They’re ignoring this thread, I wonder why...
I always thought this was probably his single greatest offense. If this had been a Republican, he would be sitting in prison. Watch the video. Enjoy
Exactly. They can’t find any phony defense or nullification of this. It’s true, it happened, that’s it.
Give them time. The trolls are in conference getting their new talking points.
He did all those things under the auspices of the office of the future president elect so he cannot be charged.....
do I really need a sarcasm tag for this post?
The trolls are not totally stupid, matter of fact many I think are realizing that even they will be fingered, in this day and age nobody can hide behind a keyboard forever.
And Obama will sacrifice his army in a heartbeat if he thinks they are excess luggage or a liability on the road to his throne.
" Hi, Mom."
He also learned that the objective of cutting off the flow of information to Israel was to severely curtail Israel's ability to act independently in defense of her own interests.
Furthermore, on May 11, 1998, Israel formally acknowledged Jonathan Pollard had been a bona fide Israeli agent. This fact wiped out any remaining doubt about Jonathan Pollard's motives. Being an official agent is, by definition, the polar opposite of being a mercenary.
The majority placed heavy emphasis on the failure to appeal from the life sentence in a timely manner, and on the resulting far heavier burden faced by Pollard in seeking to challenge the sentence via habeas corpus. [Note: "Habeas corpus" is a procedure by which an incarcerated person may bring a court challenge to the legality of his or her incarceration - often long after the underlying case has been concluded.]
In a dissenting opinion, Court of Appeals Judge Stephen Williams called the case "a fundamental miscarriage of justice," and wrote that he would have ordered that Pollard's sentence be vacated.
The CIA claim that another highly-placed spy in the U.S. had to exist in order to give Jonathan Pollard his highly specific tasking orders is a complete fabrication. To understand how Pollard was tasked by Israel to secure specific documents, see: Was there another U.S. spy tasking Pollard? - Mr. X' Exposed.
The Israeli government recognized long ago that Jonathan's sentence was unjust, that the documents he delivered to Israel did not remotely cause the damage that the prosecution claimed but never proved. As a result of this recognition, various Israeli administrations have negotiated, as a matter of basic fairness, to secure Jonathan's release.
Although President Clinton promised Prime Minister Rabin that he would release Jonathan as part of a Middle East peace settlement, the President refused to honor his promise after Rabin was assassinated.
Both before and again during the Wye summit negotiations in the fall of 1998, President Clinton promised to release Jonathan Pollard. Pollard was the deal-maker at Wye which enabled the accords to be completed.
In September, 1998, just before the mid-term Congressional elections, President Clinton (who at the time was facing impeachment hearings and in need of a foreign policy PR victory) asked Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to attend a three-way summit with the Palestinians at Wye River, Maryland.
Clinton knew that a successful summit at Wye just before the Congressional elections would be good not only for his image, but would also reap great political benefits for the Democrats in their bid to regain control of Congress. As an inducement to Netanyahu, Clinton promised to release Jonathan Pollard within the context of the summit.
Understanding the value of Jonathan Pollard for his own re-election bid, and needing him as a sweetener to sell any kind of "peace" deal to the Israeli people, Netanyahu ignored the entreaties of Republican friends like Newt Gingrich and agreed to attend the summit. (Gingrich would later repay Netanyahu by leading the Republican charge of slander and lies against Jonathan Pollard.)
President Clinton personally worked out the details of the deal in a late-night private session with a Palestinian and an Israeli representative.
The Pollard negotiation was the deal-maker at Wye which allowed the summit to be successfully wrapped up and a signing ceremony to be planned for the next morning in Washington, on Friday October 23, 1998.
Netanyahu threatened not to attend the signing ceremony unless he got the Pollard side letter. Clinton said, "Trust me." Netanyahu, knowing he was about to be double-crossed by Clinton over Pollard for the second time, refused.
Netanyahu demanded that in the absence of a side letter of guarantee, Pollard should be freed into his custody immediately, or no signing ceremony. Arik Sharon supported Netanyahu and they threatened to leave Wye without signing the accords.
He sent emissaries to Capitol Hill to hold emergency meetings with leading Senators and Congressmen to enlist their support in publicly denouncing Pollard's release. Many lies were told by the CIA emissaries about Jonathan Pollard to convince the legislators to act swiftly and in unison. Believing the lies, the legislators complied and began an unprecedented series of public actions to prevent the release of Jonathan Pollard.
Under heavy public pressure and betrayed by his own Minister of Defense, Yitzhak Mordecai*, who closed ranks with Clinton, Netanyahu folded and accepted this private deal. The signing ceremony was held in Washington as scheduled. *(Mordecai himself is now on trial in Israel in 2001 for sexual assault.)
However, eye witnesses to the Pollard deal at Wye, including the Israeli and the Palestinian who had negotiated the deal with Clinton and the former Israeli Cabinet Secretary, all later contradicted the White House version of events and affirmed that President Clinton had committed himself to the release of Jonathan Pollard as an integral part of the Wye Accords.
Note: Prime Minister Netanyahu was the first prime minster of Israel to agree to free Palestinian terrorists with Jewish blood on their hands. That is the price the Americans demanded for Pollard at Wye. To this day, this represents a keen embarrassment for Netanyahu and his party, even more so since he did not receive Pollard but the Palestinian murders were released nonetheless. That is why no official source from the Netanyahu government ever wants to publicly admit to it. They keep the details to a minimum, but all concur that Pollard's freedom was bought and paid for by "concessions"at Wye.
The Palestinians were outraged, and insisted that these common criminals were not the prisoners that they had bargained for at Wye. The Americans angrily protested. Netanyahu reminded the Americans that the Wye Accords do not specify exactly which prisoners Israel must release. Critics wondered if the Prime Minister had lost his mind to antagonize the Americans this way.
Only those close to Prime Minister Netanyahu understood that this was Netanyahu's private, pointed reminder to Bill Clinton that if he was thinking of double-crossing him yet a third time over Pollard, he should think again. No Pollard, no release for the Palestinian murderers and terrorists.
Unfortunately for Jonathan Pollard, Netanyahu's government fell before he was able to act on this.
The story, though not logical, sounded plausible and it became popular to cite the opposition of the American Intelligence community as the reason Clinton did not honor his commitment at Wye to free Pollard.
This was soon exposed as the lame excuse it was when Clinton freed a group of unrepentant FALN terrorists in the fall of 1999, in an attempt to improve his wife's popularity with New York State's Hispanic community in her election bid for the Senate. (See Senate Race Page.)
To this day, the same lame excuse continues to be used to justify the unjustifiable failure of Clinton to honor his commitment.
Clinton ignored a solid wall of opposition from the Justice, Intelligence and Defense departments and Congress, invoked his powers of executive clemency and set the FALN terrorists free. In doing so, he unequivocally put the lie to the notion that any government agency might tie his hands or influence his decision in matters of clemency. (See FALN Page and Clemency Page.)
Rabbi Eliyahu repeated the same offer every year after that in private letters to President Clinton.
Every offer went unacknowledged until the fall of 2000, when Esther Pollard received a letter from the White House indicating that the President was aware of the former chief Rabbi's offer and that it would be part of the President's consideration in reaching a final decision on her husband's case.
When he left office in January 2001, Jonathan Pollard was not included among those that to whom Clinton granted clemency:
On his last day in office, Clinton granted clemency to 140 people. Many who received executive clemency had been convicted of very serious offenses, including murder, robbery and drug dealing. Some of those pardoned had served no prison time at all before being pardoned. Among those pardoned were Clinton's brother, and a former head of the CIA. (See Clemency Page.)
The motion, supported by documentation, presents a compelling and very disturbing picture of serious government misconduct that went unchecked by Mr. Pollard's then-counsel. As a result of that misconduct, and as a result of his attorney's ineffectiveness Jonathan Pollard was sentenced to life in prison on the basis of false allegations, and under circumstances that violated his plea agreement. (See Legal Doc: Declaration of Jonathan Jay Pollard In Support of Motion for Resentencing. See also Legal Doc: Memorandum of Law in Support of Jonathan Jay Pollard's § 2255 Motion for Resentencing.)
In September of 2000, Jonathan Pollard's attorneys filed a separate motion requesting that attorney Eliot Lauer be allowed access to the secret portions of the Pollard court docket. (See Legal Doc: Motion to Unseal the Pollard Record.)
Both Lauer and Semmelman hold TOP SECRET level security clearances, which they obtained from the Justice Department in order to be eligible to see their client's full record.
A motion for reconsideration was filed January 18, 2001. (See Legal Doc: Motion for Reconsideration of Court Order.)
Between close friends and strong allies, that ought to be enough.
Of late I've often wondered if this wasn't the "bombshell" revelation Hillary's people claimed to have during the primaries, as they grew increasingly desperate. I can see why they could not, or would not, pull the trigger on something like this: it could have hurt the Democrat Party with blacks, with illegal immigrant-loving "Hispanics" and with the Left-Wing base who believe that rules and regulations are only for Republicans.
Definitely food for thought.
I agree with you. His sentence should be commuted to time served! 24 years in prison is grossly disproportionate to the gravity of his crime, and is way out of the range of other sentences handed down to those convicted of espionage on behalf of allies.
Furthermore, he is extremely unlikely to pose any national security threat upon release.
As to the Espionage Act itself, it should be rewritten to make clearer distinctions between different degrees of crime, and penalties should be prescribed accordingly. It's just common sense that espionage on behalf of American enemies and terrorist-supporting nations and organizations has to be punished most severely, as such acts pose the greatest threats to national security.
If they do not get thrown before a firing squad, traitors should rot for life in prison.
Propaganda in his defense is ignored.
So are stupid, bigoted statements
Is anyone already put together some sort of lawsuit for that? Before all the proofs disappear suddenly? I would love to see it if it is already outthere but...I doubt it..
Er, calling someone a traitor is ‘bigoted’ ? Go back to the Political Correctness class, boy. You obviously didn’t pay enough attention to the groupthink.
I wonder what you would say about our intelligence agents who had to secretly obtain information from our Middle Eastern "allies" like Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Turkey? I'm sure that you'd be screaming for them to executed, too.
