The President took the following oath:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
The Constitution specifies in Article VI, clause 3:
“The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”
For other officials, including members of Congress, it specifies they “shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation to support this constitution.” At the start of each new U.S. Congress, in January of every odd-numbered year, those newly elected or re-elected Congressmen – the entire House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate – must recite an oath:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
This oath is also taken by the Vice President, members of the Cabinet, and all other civil and military officers and federal employees other than the President.
TREASON (per Black’s Law Dictionary) :
A breach of allegiance to one’s government, usually committed through levying war against such government or by giving aid or comfort to the enemy. The offense of attempting by overt acts to overthrow the government of the state to which the offender owes allegiance; or of betraying the state into the hands of a foreign power. Treason consists of two elements: adherence to the enemy, and rendering him aid and comfort.
TREASON (per Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary)
Act of handing over, to hand over, betray.
I ask you, have they not committed treason? Our government is defined and embodied by the Constitution of the United States of America. I have shown you the oath they have willing and knowingly taken, but one they have trampled upon.
Spending our country into purposeful bankruptcy with bailout, stimulus, omnibus, omnibus II, health care non-reform, cap and trade non-solution to non-problem, possible Copenhagen agreement, amnesty to law breaking illegal aliens, trial of war criminals in the United States with Miranda rights, seizing our assets (water and natural resources), and on and on and on.
Is this NOT treason?
Take a stand America! This is not about politics. This is about YOUR COUNTRY!
How can you allow our loved ones to defend America abroad and not have the courage to defend America at home?
