Treason & Recourse 
by Hellesponte & Kerodin
November 11, 2010

I encourage everyone to read my weekend review
of TL Davis'
The Constitutionalist

Impeachment requires the House of Representatives to target a politician, bureaucrat or judge for High Crimes or Misdemeanors, per the Constitution.  Vague, there is room for interpretation. 

Treason is most certainly a High Crime.

Do we not reach a charge of Treason if the accused has violated his oath to ...support and defend the Constitution...?

I say yes.

Motivating our politicians to pursue such a course requires that the politicians assess the Risk/Reward arithmetic, and conclude that it is in their best interests to move this direction.  That is a high bar, and probably not attainable without a paradigm shift in our national predicament.

Such a paradigm shift probably negates the need for us to turn to the House at all...they'll be useless in an environment that shifts sufficiently for them to begin considering Treason, except when looking over their own shoulders for their own actions.

What options remain for the Patriot?  How do we get to trials for Impeachment and Treason in our current environment, assuming our current Political Class will have no interest in such pursuits?

I am not a lawyer.  I would be very interested in reading a column written by a conservative lawyer regarding any applicable history or precedent for Citizens who bypass the Establishment courts to challenge those protected by politics and bureaucracy to answer for their misdeeds.

Update: Mike emailed an outstanding suggestion that we all press our new local hires to call for Impeachment.  He pointed out quite correctly that there would be several benefits to having State legislators push from below the US House, not the least of which would be the grass-roots face the campaign would offer. 

Additionally, US Congressmen would be afforded some much-needed political cover as they point to a grass-roots effort that motivates their actions.  A new Congressman pushing for Impeachment fresh out of the swearing-in ceremony would be put in a box rather quickly if left out there all alone.  But if he had members of his home state legislature calling for Impeachment, supported by petitions from Citizens in his home state, the stakes go up for any Congressman who ignores the will of the people.

And if 50 US Congressmen had the same support from their state legislatures and Citizens, and maybe even a Governor or three...

This approach can only enhance recent States Rights efforts, as well.  There is no down-side.

Thanks Mike.  I think this idea not only gives those of us who want to stay involved a worthy project, but it also has the potential for actually accomplishing something positive.  Let's get our local Tea Party infrastructures cranked up and adding signatures to petitions, and deliver them to your state legislators.

Of course, we have frontier justice remedies.  Patriots could kick in the doors of the accused and hold a trial in the front yard.  I dare say moral justice would carry the day more often than not, but there would be collateral damage.  This isn't the best option until it has begun.  Sadly, this course becomes simply a matter of revenge once it has begun, and serves little purpose.

Tar and Feathers as public scolding holds appeal and promise.  Modern spray adhesives would avoid the burning of hot tar and the occasional byproduct of fatality.  Any Patriot who gets caught for tarring and feathering a guilty party will go to prison.  Count on it.

Burning effigies and hanging effigies have little impact today.  There was a point in our history when a member of the Political Class would properly interpret an effigy as a shot across the bow, a warning that real punishment was to follow if they persisted in their malfeasance.

Today, our Political Class does not hold any fear that any punishment will become physical.

Our Countrymen have been known to gather at the home of a wayward politician, and burn it to the ground.  The potential to hurt family members is too high for this option.  Besides, the politician today would probably get a fat check from the insurance company and build a nicer home, this one with a bigger fence.

But I bet it wouldn't be long before insurance companies write an exclusion rider for politicians!

There is an End the Fed rally in Philadelphia coming soon.

Some folks intend to be armed, adding emphasis to the message.

If the question is: How do we get our Political Class to respect the Constitution, I don't know the answer.

I am not sanguine that any answer short of that taken by our Founders can work today.  The schoolyard bully never respects the little guy until the little guy surprises him with a chair across the teeth.

Our Political Class has evolved bullying to an art.

They do not hesitate to use violence when it serves their purpose.

Have you ever seen an entire 3rd grade class corner a bully and tell him to lay-off the little guy?  Real life doesn't work that way.  There will not be a mass uprising in America beyond what we have seen with the Tea Party...and we all see how that is working out so far. 

Once in a while the little guy is really a Clark Kent, and he takes the intellectual decision one day to put the bully's elbow in his own ear.  More often, the little guy emotionally snaps one day and there is a brawl.

Most often, the little guy keeps his mouth shut and his eyes averted so he doesn't take another embarrassing beating.

Where do Patriots go from here?

It appears obvious that no Patriot is very interested in making a name in the history books as a martyr to the cause by proactively making a run at the republic's traitors.

It is obvious that there will be no mass, non-violent uprising before collapse.

Has the Patriot Community taken the decision, by default, to let the house of cards fall down, and then work toward Restoration in the midst of ruin?  I wonder how any Patriot can realistically expect to achieve Restoration in an environment that requires nearly total focus on feeding and defending the family, when we can't even get close in today's environment of plentiful food, shelter, warmth and ammo?

What is your plan in these final days that we know as normal, and what is your plan for the days after?

Is there any point even trying to hold people responsible for the ruin they are bringing to the republic, either today or after?

Would 537 Citizen Trials make any difference?

What of those useful idiots who are helping to murder the republic?  Are they untouchable?

SEIU has a history of voter fraud controversies.  Heading into the mid-terms Sharron Angle held a 4 point lead over Harry Reid.  She lost the next day by 3 points.  Did this happen in any other race?

Alvie gets it.
 


SEIU had the service contract for voting machines.

You connect the dots and consider the fate of those people historians may one day consider to be traitors...and consider how history will record that we handled that...

Excerpt: There comes a time when civility is no longer appropriate as the only option on the table.  Dare we not offend the sensibilities of Liberals, Socialists, and Communists in our midst who are ruining and destroying our republic?  Are we to cower and sheepishly genuflect when we are scolded for the tone or choice of our words in the face of ruin, poverty, tyranny, and death?!

Are we so frightened of chastisement from insignificant men and women of the political Left with stained and darkened souls that we turn from our duties of Patriotism and shun our sacred obligation to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America?  We ask you, is not our republic worth the risk of being castigated?  Is the soul of our mighty nation no longer worthy of our fortunes, our lives, and our Sacred Honor?  Have we lost so much of our heritage, our courage, our mettle, and grit that we will stand idly by and permit the foolish and the stupid, who work hand-in-hand with evil people in our nation, that we will permit them to send us into eternal slavery and tyranny as the world has never before witnessed?
 

Excerpt: You are a fool if you do not believe that elements of the Left would use force, if they could, to compel you to comply with many of their edicts.  In drafting healthcare reform, they use the threat of financial fines, felony conviction and prison if you refuse to buy health insurance! 

How is that not only a degree or two removed from a pistol to the head? We are undeniably heading toward the same tyrannies known to Russians, Germans, and the Chinese.  It starts with Liberalism, advances to Socialism, and ends with Fascism, Communism, or some other tyranny…and death.


Excerpt: We have a culture of people whose first response to a physical threat is to dial 911, or worse, a lawyer.  We have a nation of people who will dump hot coffee on themselves, then sue the restaurant – and win!  We have a nation of educators who suspend children for drawing a picture of a handgun or for bringing a Boy Scout knife-and-fork kit to show and tell! 

We have a nation of people so removed from the food chain that many would starve to death if the local supermarket closed.  We have a nation of people who cannot truly grasp the hardships faced by most of the people in the world every day, and as a result we have a nation of people who have lost fundamental common sense.


Excerpt: The Bill of Rights articulates the natural rights of man, rights that are not bestowed by government, but rights that are innately ours as human beings.  These rights may not be taken from us.  These rights were written in plain language so that no clever interpretation and manipulation of the intent was possible.  These rights may not be restricted, narrowed, or infringed.  Any attempt to do so is a violation of the relationship between Man and Creator. 

Every narrowing, restriction, infringement, and clever interpretation imposed upon us in the years since our Constitution was ratified is simply a violation of our natural rights.

We hold that every violation of the Constitution and Bill of Rights by those in Government is an act of Treason, as these violations are unjust, undermining the fundamental foundations of our republic, breaking the pact between citizen and government, and desecrating the relationship between Man and Creator.  Any man or woman who enforces these unconstitutional laws on behalf of government is a treasonous soul and an enemy of Liberty and humanity.

Try not to make it to the Big League before it begins.

How do you know when you have made the Bigs?

You catch a Federal case.

When you earn real attention from our Masters, you'll know it...usually after it is too late.  Our Masters will tolerate quite a bit from folks, even Patriots who are rabble-rousing.  They really don't care if you are stocking up on rice and beans, even rifles and bullets.  They don't care if you call them names or incite a few misdemeanors or send them snarky little letters.  If you are trying to get their attention and you have not yet caught a Federal case, it's still amateur hour...or maybe you are valuable to them...

It's when you start to have an impact on the flow of dollars that you will earn real interest.  Write a report that negatively impacts the stock value of a few Fortune 50 companies, and you will soon have a genuine understanding of the term Lawfare. 

You may also be schooled on Constructive Possession.

There are many lessons you may be taught.  Right Now.

You will learn inside baseball details about the US Code that will make you ill. 

The world begins to move very, very quickly. 

You will be faced with stark choices that have never entered your mind, because you think you understand the rules.

You do not understand the rules, until you have been inside the machine.

Then your options are put on the table: 2 years if you take the deal, or 20 if you fight...and we'll add a Conspiracy case for your little dog, too...

You will learn that the power of a US Attorney is crushing.

Do not make it easy to take you out of play, Patriot.

And, it is oh, so easy...if they ever decide to do it.

The choice is theirs...not yours.

Truth, Justice & the American Way?

Not so much.

The DOJ conviction rate is 95% in a bad year, and pushes above 98% according to some stats.  The deck is not only stacked in their favor, they own the deck.  And the card table.  And the casino.  Do you understand?

Can you name any Federal bureaucracy that runs at a minimum 95% efficiency rate?  What does that tell you?

Do not make the mistake of thinking that you intimidate them just because they have not yet chosen to come for you...

The Point: If you are trying to incite Big Brother to notice you, go for it!  But, man up and roll bigger dice.

If you would prefer to make your preparations for it with relative impunity, just go about your business and avoid taking actions that will make it easy for Them to take you out of play, and do not give them a reason to take you out of play.  Don't telegraph about the details of your preparations or defensive measures.  Don't put a pistol in your belt, against your local laws, unless you are willing to use it when LEO spots you in the convenience store.  Avoid gratuitous violence.

Do not draw hyperbolic lines in the sand.  When you draw lines in the sand that you do not defend, it reveals you for what you are deep in your Soul...and some of that bad energy splatters on us, too.

There will be plenty of opportunities for a fight, if you want one, soon enough.  Be smart, stay off the radar, so that any fight you engage will be on your terms.

Get your head on straight, Patriot!

Following the counsel of idiots and hollow heroes regarding SHTF circumstances will get you dead...and if you can't tell the difference between serious men and hot-air machines, you're already half way to a mass grave.  Growling on blogs about how you will not yield one more inch, or one more of your gun rights, then letting LEO have your pistol during a traffic stop makes you a pathetic joke, not a Leader worthy of serious consideration. 

Hyperbolic proclamations about what you will do to any Alphabet Agency team making a dynamic entry to your home is hardly helpful to the Patriot cause.

If you draw a line in the sand, defend the damned line!  Do not whine and make excuses later about the better part of valor!  Your poor judgment (drawing the line) and cowardice (choosing not to defend it) colors us all.

Man up and think for yourself, or you are wasting perfectly good air, and feeding those who depend on your intellect and common sense false hope.

"Liberalism, and Liberals, are ruinous to the republic, and must be marginalized if America is to survive.  Patriots must step to this challenge and risk the wrath of the Politically Correct, and do the work that must be done to honor our Fathers.  Liberals must be stopped, at any cost." - Kerodin


"No, I apologize for nothing.  I know the truth, regardless of what may be in the press.  I know that when I stand before Saint Peter, I will be granted passage.  If I am ever granted audience with God, I have nothing to fear.  I have lived the life He chose for me, and I still have much work to do..." - Kerodin


"No man looks forward into life when young and can imagine for himself the life I have lived.  But I am better for it.  I have been places never anticipated.  I have had experiences never dreamed.  I have met people who would have never otherwise been in my social or professional circle.  I have, many times, leaned upon the words of Winston Churchill - 'When you are going through Hell, keep going!'" - Kerodin


My family continues to promote my values where I can not.  They are Patriots.  If you ever meet my wife, you will meet the most loyal wife and Patriot in America.  She is brave, brilliant, and bold.  We fight Liberal stupidity together through the First Amendment.  Laws change - and one day I will stand with her again in the Second Amendment fight that she carries on when I must stand aside."  - Kerodin


Current political leaders are only the face of the problem confronting America today.  The underlying cancer eating the American Soul is Liberalism.  But for your Liberal neighbors, Liberal politicians would never be elected to office.

It is not sufficient to simply defeat Liberal politicians at the polls.  Liberalism must be defeated in our society and Liberals must be marginalized, or this disease will kill the republic.

Every patriotic business owner should immediately fire every Liberal on staff and hire an employee who respects the nation and our Constitution.  Why should any business owner suffer an employee who will simply vote for politicians who further ruin the company?!

The Liberals in your community must be ostracized and denied entry into your social circle.  These stupid people are responsible for the insanity that affects everything from your property taxes to the curriculum taught to your children.  Why would you break bread with them, when they are the reason your bread costs too much?  Why would any parent permit them access to their children, when they are responsible for ruining your child's future?


Excerpt:

This book may not be for you.

If you consider yourself to be a Liberal or Progressive, go away. You are not permitted to buy this book. This book is written by patriotic Americans for patriotic Americans. This is a discussion among ourselves, and if you are a Liberal politician or you vote for Liberal politicians,
(Of the genus Stupidus Liberalis)  you are not invited to participate.

First, we will demonstrate that all politicians, judges, and government employees at the Local, State, and Federal levels who support federal Healthcare Reform, the Assault Weapons Ban, TARP, Stimulus I, Free Trade Agreements, PATRIOT Act, the new “Jobs” bill, or a host of other such Federal programs or initiatives, are guilty of Treason against the United States of America.

Secondly, businesses, multi-national corporations and special interest groups that support Liberal politicians and/or Liberal programs, Cap & Trade, Global Warming legislation, et cetera, are committing Treason against the United States of America.

Finally, we will demonstrate that those private Citizens who support or vote for any of these politicians—once the nature of the politician is known to the public—or programs are equally guilty of Treason by knowingly lending material aid and support to a Traitor.


Excerpt: The five most expensive parts of our national budget are:

1.      Social Security

2.      Medicare

3.      Medicaid

4.      Defense

5.      Interest on the National Debt

Numbers 1, 2 and 3 are wholly unconstitutional and brought to us by Liberals. 

Number 5 is wholly a result of numbers 1, 2 and 3!
