Obama’s Offense Is Treason, Not ‘Political Correctness’
At the end of last week, I read an article in which former DHS employee Phillip Haney states that just before an all but successful terrorist attack on Christmas Day, 2009 , “I was ordered by my superiors at the Department of Homeland Security to delete or modify several hundred records of individuals tied to designated Islamist terror groups like Hamas from the important federal database, the Treasury Enforcement Communications System (TECS).”
According to Haney’s report, this was part of a systematic pattern in which “the Obama administration ordered removed from the travel and national security databases…the kind of information that, if properly assessed, could have prevented subsequent Islamist attacks…”
Mr. Haney decries what he sees as “our leaders’ willingness to compromise the security of citizens for the ideological rigidity of political correctness….”In her commentary on Haney’s statements, Pamela Geller asks the relevant question “How is this not impeachable?” To which I found myself giving the mental reply “Because it’s being cast as an example of mistaken political correctness.”
But if the facts and consequences are such as Mr. Haney reports and assesses them to be, the actions involved should be cited as prima facie evidence of treason. Why? Because they involve actions that facilitate the destructive covert activities of terrorists involved in levying war against the United States.
In and of itself, the encouragement of so-called “political correctness” is not necessarily a crime, even though it may have consequences severely damaging to the order and security of our society.It is not a crime because it does not, on the face of it, involve criminal intent.Its proponents certainly argue to the contrary.They say it is intended to assure fair, unprejudiced treatment for all people, thereby reducing the interpersonal friction, resentment and ill will that leads to disorder and conflict.
Thus, attributing the Obama administration’s actions to the ideological motive of ‘political correctness’ diverts public discussion from its proper focus when malfeasance affecting the nation’s security is in view, which is to hold those responsible accountable for their actions and make sure they suffer the consequences the Constitution provides. This diversion is what comes of accept terminology fabricated by the elitist faction media; when we should be casting issues vital to our national security in terms of the language, principles and purposes of our Constitution.
If the issue is treason, the question in not about “political correctness”, but about motive and responsibility. The whole tenor of Obama’s life and social activism, as well as his career in politics and government, plainly suggests that he subscribes to an ideology hostile to the U.S. Constitution and the American way of life.In 2014, I wrote a series of articles about this for my blog.The article entitled “What Obama’s Anti-Americanism has wrought” is directly pertinent to Phillip Haney’s revelations. In it I wrote:
Obama is a committed ideologue, who has long preferred the company of hardline leftists, and who is full of admiration for China’s Mao Zedong and other paragons of life-destroying communist atrocity. Obama himself supped with and strongly supported Kenya’s Raila Odinga, whose partisans went on a rampage of atrocity in Kenya in order to force Odinga’s savage ambitions on those who opposed him.
Combine knowledge of such a background as this with the consistently destructive, anti-American pattern of his actions, and what combination of self-willed blindness and/or moral cowardice explains the unwillingness to see Obama for what he is? What excuse is there for refusing urgently to declare it to the American people, in order to rouse them to do whatever they can to curtail his term of office before he fortifies, beyond all peaceful remedy, his betrayal of the nation’s Constitution and security?
Unlike the discussion of “political correctness”, this way of looking at Obama’s policies goes directly to the question of motive and intent, which must be examined in order to sustain the charge of treason the consequential facts appear to warrant. It is hardly a stretch to see enmity at the root of policies and actions that damage America’s national security and morale, when the whole life and career of the person ultimately responsible for those policies and actions reeks of anti-Americanism.Add to this the aspects of his upbringing that predispose him favorably toward Islam, and it is quite reasonable to conclude that actions that consequentially systematically aid and abet Islamists hostile to the United States are the result of a set predisposition, pursued with malice aforethought.
Now more than ever it is clear that the House of Representatives should immediately move to draw up articles of impeachment against Barack Obama and his cohorts.As part of that process they should immediately authorize a diligent investigation into the accuracy of the facts Phillip Haney has reported, and his assessment of the harm done.
This is what ought to happen.This is what reason, the apparent facts and their sworn duty to the Constitution require members of Congress to do. However, I doubt that the GOP Congressional majority will do what the Constitution requires. I doubt it because both so-called “major” political Parties now dance to the tune of an elitist faction clique that is bound and determined to overthrow our constitutional government, of, by, and for the people. That clique means to replace our republic with an oligarchic tyranny, hostile to the authority of the Creator invoked in America’s organic law; careless of God-endowed unalienable right; and inimical to the rightful liberties all Americans of goodwill are entitled to derive from it.
That’s why a pattern is emerging in their actions that aids and abets this nation’s slide toward insecurity, bankruptcy, and disorder. For like their tool and figurehead, Barack Obama, the elitist faction clique is hostile to America’s rightful liberty. They are more than willing to let Barack Obama make a mockery of America’s national security apparatus, as they have helped him make a mockery of the nation’s financial independence; its economic strength; and its Constitutional processes, including especially the election of the President and Vice-president of the United States. Thereby they contribute to the oncoming crises that will facilitate the achievement of their fatally anti-American goals.
