WORLD WAR II VETERAN LIKENS CONGRESS, OTHER FEDERAL OFFICIALS TO “PIRATES”

(Aug. 12, 2016) — On January 13, 2012, an Italian cruise ship hit a rocky outcropping in the Mediterranean near Porto Giglio and sank, killing 32 passengers. This was not only a wreck, but also a colossal tragedy that need not have happened. The Costa Concordia was heading out on a week-long cruise around the Mediterranean with 3,206 passengers and 1,023 crew on board.
As it made its way northwest along the Italian coastline, Captain Francesco Schettino ordered the ship to be steered close to the island of Giglio as a “salute.” The ship came too near some rocks clearly shown on navigational charts. It hit one or more rocky outcroppings and immediately began taking on water. Captain Schettino left the ship as it was sinking and subsequently 32 passengers died. Captain Schettino was subsequently tried, convicted of 32 counts of manslaughter and sentenced to prison.
So what is the connection between the Costa Concordia, its captain, his errors and fate and we, passengers on the Good Ship, “Republic of the United States”? The accident that befell the Costa Concordia is simply an analogy describing a situation similar to the jeopardy in which the “Republic of the United States” finds itself at this moment. We are perilously close to socialism, our decks awash in possibly unmanageable debt, an unwary and apathetic list of passengers better described as “citizens” and a crew which can only be described as bordering on treason, or, in maritime jargon, “Mutiny.”
The crew — the Congress — is incompetent, as is the captain, our chief executive. and those in charge of navigating us through the obstacles we already face and some as yet unrecognized, the Supreme Court. Our analogous crew of, at the moment 545, is in part unwilling to right the ship, and the remainder are piratical, intent on taking a prize by both insidious and/or overt means.
While the Costa Concordia likely had little to no law enforcement capability, the “Republic of the United States” has on board a plethora of legal entities, all of whom are absent any notion or indication of fear for the ship. Rather, they have never been confronted by the specter of “Death of a Nation.” This writer is most fearful that a conspiratorial crime of treason is under way, in which case the following law is applicable:
Therefore, 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.” The requirement of testimony of two witnesses was inherited from the British Treason Act 1695.
I find it not impossible to believe, but that in this “inspired-by-God” republic it is virtually incomprehensible. If true, it is repugnant, and if any enforcers of federal law fails to intercede and bring the many who appear to be in a collusive effort to force socialism or a dictatorship upon 300 million Americans to a fitting justice, I issue this warning; ALL HELL IS GOING TO BREAK LOOSE!
For the moment, I perceive only a minuscule portion of the listless federal government to be guilty of TREASON! The chief culprit is a creature known as, among other pseudonyms, Barry Soetoro-Obama, our faux president. He has been holding court for over seven and one-half years. He has, at minimum, committed TWO clear acts of TREASON.
The first was, as reported by Katie Pavlich in “Townhall” in an article titled, “Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal,” the Fast & Furious gun-walking scandal. Former DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, and former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder were two key players in this first act of treason resulting in the deaths of Americans and Mexicans. In her column, Pavlich wrote, “This administration was willing to use humans as collateral damage to push a political agenda, and had no shame in doing so. Now, the administration has no shame in covering up their reckless actions.”
The treason was in Obama’s giving aid and comfort to the Mexican drug cartels, most definitely an enemy of the United States. They are all guilty of Accessory in at least two murders: U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE Agent Jaime Zapata.
The second charge of treason was just as blatant, overt and harmful to the United States. During the period just after the presidential election of 2012 and into early 2013, Obama, with the approval and complicity of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State nominee John Kerry, and purportedly Cheryl Mills, Valerie Jarrett, Huma Abedin, every sitting Democrat Senator and 23 Republican Senators, gave the Muslim Brotherhood of the Arabic State of Egypt, a sworn enemy of the United States, 20 F-16 McDonnell-Douglas fighter jets, 200 Abrams combat tanks and $1 million in cash.
I have no idea just how seriously our judicial system views TREASON, but under the law cited above, I suggest it should be viewed with not only disgust and hate, but also with retribution in mind. Either a federal district court trial or a General Court-Martial would be a superb starting point. Just a reminder: Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were tried, convicted on considerably less evidence and were summarily electrocuted. That is appropriate for espionage and spying, but for treason, the penalty should be pronounced by the judge up to and including the death penalty if convicted.
Do you dilettantes, any of you — Comey, Dunford, Channing Phillips — have the masculinity, duty or honor to turn the helm hard to starboard to get our America back on course? I await your stammering reply. Does this little questionnaire earn for me another visit from a federal agency? I get so few visitors.
