The following article is by John Cooper at http://www.cosmicflyswatter.com/. John is the nephew of Lt. Col. Jeff Cooper. Many of you know Lt. Col. Cooper as a scholar, a decorated Marine, a hunter, a family man, and most formidably a Shottist (one who is exemplary in the shooting field). This article is thought provoking to say the least.
At What Point Do We Call It Treason?
The United States Code at 18 U.S.C. § 2381 states
“… whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”
At what point do we consider the illegal confiscation of over half the wealth of common Americans a form of treason. Was it not treasonous for the Secretary of the Treasury to meet secretly with the President and demand $800 billion dollars of taxpayer money to be given away to foreign bankers, and then refuse to provide a clear accounting of that money? I believe this to be patently unconstitutional.
Is it not a form of treason for the next President of the United States to give aid and comfort to the enemies of the American people by rewarding them with cabinet posts? Timothy Geithner is a tax-cheat and the former head of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. He is one of the enemies of the American people. Or take Rahm Immanuel a former Goldman Sachs executive who was also responsible for the most irresponsible acts perpetrated against the good and trusting American Taxpayer/Investor. He is now chief of Staff in the White House. These two men were integral players in the financial meltdown and subsequent thievery.
Is it not treasonous for this same reprobate, Immanuel, to condescendingly state that he would not let a good crisis go to waste? He is personally orchestrating the destruction of the private sector of the United States and has made it clear that he will see the end of capitalism.
Is it not treason for the President of the United States to steal the equity owned by regular citizens in our largest auto manufacturer and give the shares to himself and the United Auto Workers. This is unconstitutional and the trampling of the rule of law no matter the refusal of the Supreme Court to do anything to stop it.
Is it not treason to declare war on independent thinking free men and women and their small business interests by saddling them with billions in taxes, with tax models cooked up by East Coast Plutocrats to line their pockets by implementing energy and health care schemes, schemes designed to do one thing efficiently: destroy the private sector and force Federal control of all prerogative? This is also unconstitutional. Is it not treason against the people by abrogating those guarantees of the Tenth Amendment.
Is it not treason for legislators to pass thousand page bills – which they do not read – loaded with cronyist paybacks and pork, spending billions of our great grandchildren’s money forcing monetary slavery on children who are yet unborn?
Are not our Representatives and Senators levying war against us?
Are not Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid levying war on the American people?
The United States Code at 18 U.S.C. § 2381 states:
“… whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies…”
By stealing the peoples money illegally with no accountability have they not LEVIED WAR against us?
By unreasonably seizing assets, and levying unconscionable and oppressive tax and spend schemes are they not destroying our way of life?
By instituting conspiracies with large corporations such as GE to rake dollars from the public are they not levying war?
I ask you to consider, have they not declared war on us?
What part of the thievery being perpetrated against the American People since September of 2008 is different, no, what part is in any way inferior to the Acts of King George that caused our Revolution and Founding?
Notwithstanding the recent pandering of our President to our declared enemies, is there not just cause for the good American to consider any such actions as legitimate that might stop this illegal and ungodly course?
What pressure would stem the profuse bleeding these traitors have caused our philosophy of living, our blessed and free way of life?
And even now the traitors, fearful of the wrongs they know they are committing, sleep so uneasy that they have alerted Law Enforcement to be on the lookout for any returning veterans that might disagree with them. Good men who have served their country must be watched for they know how to use weapons. These men of duty cannot be trusted by the evildoers in our government. This is because the man of evil only sleeps well after good men have been put to sleep and silenced.
And on this list has also been placed anyone who is Christian, against abortion, or in favor of our Second Amendment Rights. The list will grow longer by this very nightfall. For I am now joined to it and perhaps you are also for reading this. They are now murmuring vague proposals to modify our First Amendment rights.
At what point do we call it Treason?
The movement of progressives has been marching now for a century. The subtle advancements of their cause has, for the most part, been added to them unnoticed by the good, generous, and hard working free men and women. But when would-be tyrants from the ranks of the elite not only practice their normal strong-arm tactics by seizing power, control, and the very sustenance of the productive, but they then unashamedly declare that they will force monetary slavery on them, not three fold, not ten fold, yes not even one hundred fold, but a thousand fold or more, and then boast about it; is it not time for free men and women to resist and consider the absolution of our bonds with this illegitimate and treasonous government?
When the arrogance of a class of men has outreached their common sense and any prudence from which they conceive of their authority; when political, corporate, financial, and labor representatives forget from where we the common people derive our rights, it is our duty to remind them first and then remove them for the sake of our way of life, for the maintenance of our posterity and for the respect due to those who have shed their blood for our freedom.
It is time for free men and women to remind the elite scoundrels that populate those foul centers of thievery and corruption, New York and Washington D.C., that their second rate imitation of Sodom and Gomorrah may bring them their just portion of fire and brimstone, but that we intend not be buried with them!
We will not indulge those who show nothing but contempt for the common man! It is time to remind all of them and the Liars at Harvard, their progeny and anyone who would support the degrading of our freedom, our economic liberty, and our rights that,
“… We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…”
At what point do we call it Treason?
It is on this day, July 18, 2009 that we must call it treason!
