The Constitution of the United States, Art. III, defines treason against the United States to consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, GIVING THEM AID OR COMFORT. This offense is punished with death. By the same article of the Constitution, 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.
Could a class action suit be undertaken by all the passengers and crew on the flight Christmas Day? Why should any innocent American citizen have to pay the legal fees of an enemy who is trying to kill them? It's outrageous!
The entire Obama administration and a majority of Congressrats are traitors!
How can they be . They are the enemy.
No, and I really doubt you want to go there, as it would expose former presidents to the same charges.
The counter-argument, with which I disagree in principle, would be that the Constitution, not the Administration, granted them the right to counsel and a defense. Even if the administration were to be proven wrong, their good-faith belief that these are Constitutional rights would likely be enough to derail any treason charges.
“....it would expose former presidents to the same charges.”
We should learn to let the chips fall where they may. No need to be PC.
I would like someone who could review this info sent to me and determine if this could be a solution.
The common law writ of quo warranto has been suppressed at the federal level in the United States, and deprecated at the state level, but remains a right under the Ninth Amendment which was understood and presumed by the Founders, and which affords the only judicial remedy for violations of the Constitution by public officials and agents. Here are a few writings on the subject. Revival of the writs must be combined with reviving standing for private prosecution of public rights, subverted by the decision in Frothingham v. Mellon, 262 U.S. 447 (1923), which is discussed in an article by Steve Winter, The Metaphor of Standing and the Problem of Self-Governance.
Although some of these writings are copyrighted, we are assured that all the chapters of all the ones still copyrighted have been attached to pleadings in various cases, and thus made part of the public record, thereby putting them into the public domain.
A critical key to achieving federal constitutional compliance is to resurrect quo warranto and other common law writs. This involves reasserting and strengthening the original All-Writs Act and repealing or declaring unconstitutional legislation, such as the Anti-Injunction Act, and those Rules of Judicial Procedure, that have restricted the jurisdiction of federal courts to accept petitions for these writs and grant a fair hearing (”oyer”) and a decision on the merits (”terminer”) on such petitions.

You mean death gets punished along side of the offender? :>)
Of course, I knew you meant by death. Didn't you? :>(
You need go no further than that phrase to convict and condemn 100% of Democrat politicians, about 95% of Republican politicians, corporate executives, about 99% of government bureaucrats, teachers, social workers, environmental whackos, academics, economists, etc., etc., etc.
Waging war against the American citizens doesn't necessarily mean with guns, as the past two or three decades have proven.
