Democrats and Treason

Democrats and treason

Posted: April 13, 2007
1:00 a.m. Eastern

Call me this generation's Joe McCarthy; I really don't care – I'm tired of watching people hold back in their assessment of what Democrat Party leaders are doing with regard to our troops and their missions in the war on terrorism.

A number of Democrats are engaging in actions that seem to me to be nothing short of treason against our nation, and it's time they be held accountable for their actions.

Yes, I said treason.

According to Dictionary.com: Treason is any attempt to overthrow the government or impair the well-being of a state to which one owes allegiance; the crime of giving aid or comfort to the enemies of one's government.

Right now we have almost 200,000 American military men and women serving on the frontlines in the war on terrorism against an Islamic terrorist network that has attacked our nation repeatedly over the past 20 years. As chairman of the nation's largest grass-roots, pro-troop organization, Move America Forward, I work hard every day to help show support for these American heroes.

Each day Islamic jihadists are trying to kill and injure our troops who stand in the way between the jihadists and we, the American people, or in the lexicon of the radical Islamists, the "infidels."

Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has just returned from a trip to Syria that she took in defiance of the U.S. commander in chief and United States military officials, traveling during a time of war to one of the world's chief sponsors of Islamic terrorism.

Syria has sent thousands upon thousands of Islamic terrorist fighters across its borders into Iraq to injure and kill American and Coalition troops.

And this is what Nancy Pelosi had to say for herself as she visited one of the nations in the "Axis of Evil":

We came in friendship, hope, and determined that the road to Damascus is a road to peace.

Nancy Pelosi says the road to appeasing terrorists is the road to peace.

On Wednesday, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that Pelosi was next considering a trip to Iran, the other leading member of the "Axis of Evil."

Even more galling, Pelosi's travels to appease the forces of terror took place just days after the Democrat-led House of Representatives and Senate voted to call for the surrender of U.S. troops fighting Islamic terrorists in Iraq by 2008.

Democrat Senate leader Harry Reid, who is not commander in chief and who does not have the authority to send American troops into battle or call them home, nevertheless has announced that he will lead the fight to deny funding to U.S. troops if they do not surrender to the forces of terrorism and evacuate from Iraq by March 31, 2008.

Reid cannot even attempt to pretend that this was a principled stand to lower American causalities in one theater and fight the war on terrorism on another front.

Less than five months ago – on Nov. 30, 2006 – Reid sent a note to his fellow Democrats in the Senate that said: "We're not going to do anything to limit funding or cut off funds."

Sen. Reid knew better then and he knows better now.

Reid has chosen to undercut our troops with the knowledge that his actions are emboldening Islamic terrorists to kill more U.S. troops and to launch more brazen terrorist attacks against American civilians here at home.

Meanwhile, in California, Democrat State Sen. Don Perata has announced that he will push for a referendum on the 2008 California election ballot to send a message to the troops that Americans do not support their missions in Iraq.

Perata's calling it the "Vote Us Out of Iraq" measure, and he hopes his efforts to undermine the missions of U.S. troops will spread to other states. The ballot measure won't alter U.S. foreign policy at all. It merely is a propaganda tool that would hurt U.S. troop morale and embolden America's enemies.

Even the liberal California media has found Perata's actions inexcusable.

Democrat State Sen. Don Perata paints a target on the backs of our troops.

The Stockton Record questioned whether the Democrat lawmaker's move was a "stunt" or "grandstanding" and concluded with the admonition that they didn't support "state funds being wasted to accommodate what is essentially a meaningless gesture."

The San Jose Mercury News speculated about whether "Sen. Don Perata's proposal for [a] ballot measure on the Iraq war just a political ploy."

The famously liberal L.A. Times published an editorial titled "Frivolous balloteering?" that lambasted the "Vote Us Out of Iraq" ballot measure. "Asking California voters to weigh in on military policy is like asking Congress to give advice on filling potholes," said Robert Greene of the Times editorial board.

If even the anti-war, old-line media recognizes that the actions of Democrats like Perata are for purely political reasons, then how can we pretend to look the other way and not confront these awful people on what they are doing to our troops and this nation?

These Democrat leaders are literally helping to kill U.S. troops and endanger American civilians simply so they can try to score political points in the middle of a war.

I'm sorry, but if that is not treasonous conduct at a time when our military men and women are fighting for America's safety and security, then I don't know what treason is.

Amen, sister—tell it! And where, I would like to know, is the Republican congressional leadership on this issue? Why are they not calling for the impeachment—for treason—of Nancy Pelosi?

Thank you for posting this.

I am mad as hell at those who would hide under their bedsheets and wish the world into a happy place while the wolf howls at the door.

People who see the world so simply need to get out in parts of the world they don’t like to talk about at “Save-the-Gay-Baby-Whales” meetings and realize that there is true unadultered evil in this world.

I think about it this way:

The Islamofascists didn’t target Democrats or Republicans on 9-11-01....

They don’t care if the Soldiers or Marines they kill are black or white, man or woman, rich or poor....

They want death to America.

That means you too, Nance....

But, you are too much a fool to realize how dire these times truly are....

..and that makes me mad as hell....

Exactly. A lot of people throw the word “Treason” around to mean any position they disagree with. It is either giving intelligence to the enemy or physical attacks on the military or infrastructure. The founding fathers were well aware of the tendency of governments to try to classify as ‘treason’ anything with which they disagreed. Alger Hiss was Treason, Code Pink is some silly looking ugly women making fools of themselves.

It is the right of our fellow citizens to be against, and express their opinions against, this or any other war.

I detest the mindset that sees any disagreement as ‘treason’ or ‘moonbattery’ and resorts to shouting and name calling. I have no respect for those who use stupid demeaning forms of their opponents’ names, either.

Not sure what your point is in your post?

I tried to follow you but you wrote about CodePink which isn't mentioned in the column by Melanie Morgan, and then you wrote about people should have the right to be opposed to the war - which wasn't disagreed with either in the column or in any of the posts by the other FReepers.

So what is your point?

You are exactly correct. The Democrats’ refusal to acknowledge reality is one of their most dangerous traits, and in itself should disqualify them for holding public office.

Pelosi's actions may not be classified as "treason", but from what I've read, they sure could be classified as a "felony".

Here's an excerpt from a WSJ article.

"The Logan Act makes it a felony and provides for a prison sentence of up to three years for any American, "without authority of the United States," to communicate with a foreign government in an effort to influence that government's behavior on any "disputes or controversies with the United States." Some background on this statute helps to understand why Ms. Pelosi may be in serious trouble."

My point is that “Treason” is a word with a specific meaning. People who misuse it do more harm than good to the conservative cause (much as Democrats who cry ‘Racism’ all the time HURT the cause of attacking it in the very rare cases it exists).

Disagreement is one thing, but threatening to leave troops without adequate support to complete the mission while they are in harm’s way is quite another. The Democrats are doing real damage to our troops and to our national security. They went beyond simple disagreement years ago. They have been undermining and obstructing the President’s efforts to combat the enemy since shortly after they voted to authorize him to conduct this war. That is despicable.

MIDI - SOUND OF SILENCE
http://noble-knights.com/midi/

Hello patriots, my friends…I have some bad news once again
It’s disgusting what they’re doing...our great nation they’ve been screwing

Here’s the lesson, we cannot trust the Democrats…sewer rats
We hear the sound of treason

They would just sell this country out…of that, you shouldn’t have a doubt
They’re for abdicating freedom…it’s in writing, you should read ‘em

Here’s the lesson, we cannot trust the Democrats…sewer rats
We hear the sound of treason

Their hatred of the USA…they’re displaying everyday
Disdain for our Constitution…it is time for retribution

The lesson is we cannot trust the Democrats…sewer rats
We hear the sound of treason

It’s total power they must gain...it is a plan that is insane
If a Dem is not the president...they hope that we fail, it’s evident

Our defenses, we cannot trust to Democrats...sewer rats
We hear the sound of treason

Oh, yes, here they go again...they want rule by the U.N.
Socialism is ideal…that’s the way the lefties feel

The lesson is we cannot trust the Democrats…sewer rats
We hear the sound of treason

Do you know if the Logan Act has been challenged in the SCOTUS? Don’t have ability to check it here from work (Break’s over) but sure seems unconstitutional to me. And if they’ve never charged Jimmy Carter with it they will surely never charge Pelosi.

OK, then do you believe it has been misused in this case?

I do not, but am interested in hearing if people at FR disagree, then why they do.

The citations you provided (Code Pink, disagreeing with the war) weren't mentioned, so I wasn't sure exactly where you were going with your thought.

Jimmy Carter has a deathgrip hold for first place in the "Sell Your Country Out to It's Enemies" contest. The fact that Nancy Pelosi is competing for 2nd or 3rd place doesn't make it any less offensive! ;)

Good question but I don’t know the answer yet. I’m still searching. I have read that the Logan Act has been part of our criminal law for more than two centuries.

I can't understand how certain Democrats (the most shameless ones) think.

I am not at all fond of Dennis Kucinich or Eli Pariser of MoveOn.org or Air America's Randi Rhodes.

But I am on THEIR side as a fellow American when it comes down to Islamic jihadists who want to make us follow Islam at the end of a gun barrell or die a horrible, agonizing death.

The rights and freedoms that allow the goofy liberals above and us FReepers to have these discussions are one of the fundamental bonds as Americans that unite us in common cause.

Yet to the Left, George Bush is the "real terrorist" and they spend night and day attacking the "neo-cons" who are orchestrating the war on terror as they see it, and almost completely silent on the evils of Islamic militants plotting to blow up civilians in Algiers, London, Madrid, New York, etc...

These people need to get a clue or read a history book. This is pre-World War II era all over again and the "appease the evildoers and criticize those who stand up against them" approach is being recycled and polished off as new.

Who needs Neville Chamberlain when you have Nancy Pelosi go to the people killing our troops in Iraq and helping the terrorists shell the cities in Israel and say:

"We came in friendship, hope, and determined that the road to Damascus is a road to peace."

Respectfully, I do not. Treason would be giving data security codes to the Syrians, not merely meeting with them. As horrible as it is to many here, Pelosi - and many others - are duly elected representatives for a lot of people who believe we should leave, now.
My own opinion is that is, and has been silly to bother with Iraq and Afghanistan when the real enemy is the country from which 15 of the hijackers came from and that funds the Whabi proselytizing in this country. It is the wrong war in the wrong place, we are attacking Hydra heads instead of going to the heart of the matter, where the money and fanaticism come from. As long as there is fundamentalist Islam backed with oil money we are shedding our blood where we need not.

Treason as defined in the United States Constitution:

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.

Please tell me how the positions of the current Democratic MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, not Code Pink or the people protesting, are NOT giving our enemy comfort. Our enemy wants us to withdraw. Our enemy wants us to look weak. Our enemy wants President Bush out of power. Our enemy wants timetables. Disagreeing with a war and actively promoting policies that will bring about loss are two very different things.

Also, the Democrats will have discussions and negotiations with the worst of America's enemies, yet they will not join another U.S. political party on Fox News.

See it's interesting because the terrorists don't seem to agree with you about whether Iraq and Afghanistan are central frontlines in their war with the West.

Besides the letters and videos where they have announced the importance of defeating the Americans and Coalition Forces in Iraq, I think we got the message of the importance of Iraq when al-Qaeda aligned terrorist cells blew up people in Madrid and London as demands for them to pull out of Iraq.

Why, if al-Qaeda did not view Iraq as a central front in their war on the west, than why would they try to terrorize and intimidate these people and their leaders to abandon Operation Iraqi Freedom?

A final note - you make a generalization that because Nancy Pelosi went to Syria it is treason. I believe the author makes the point that it is clear that the actions of certain Democrat leaders, and the evidence she provided, made it clear that they were purposely trying to weaken the war effort that U.S. troops were involved in for political purposes.

They put the interests of their political gain, which means empowering America's enemies, ahead of the interests of the United States, its government and its people.

Like melanie Morgan says, the point is if that isn't treason than what is?

Too bad they do not believe in this fundamental bond, which is why they are NOT true Americans.

This is pre-World War II era all over again

It is pre-WWII outside of our borders and post-Vietnam inside our borders. A VERY bad combination.

"and then cited a completely irrelevant definition for it."

The author cited a definition that is based on a source that can be commonly cited as non-biased and authoritative.

The source of that definition obviously comes from the intent of the founding fathers and the constitution.

I think that's quite relevant and appropriate.

But they are NOT part of the Executive Branch and they were NOT appointed to be ambassadors on behalf of the United States. Also, one of the members on that trip, Tom Lantos, stated, "We have an alternative Democratic foreign policy."

BTW, how exactly is the Logan Act unconstitutional and VIOLATING ARCTICLE 2, SECTION 2 constitutional?

I don't. If we're going to talk about nailing people for treason, then we need to use the legal definition of treason. The definition of treason in the Constitution was carefully crafted to exclude a lot of things that are and were considered treason by many.

It wasn't a comment on the subject, but a comment on the article. The author brought up the issue of treason in this context and then cited a completely irrelevant definition for it.

And I gave you the RELEVANT definition of Treason according to our Constitution and am inquiring how the actions of the leadership of the Democratic Party are not giving the enemy confort.
