Turnabout is fair play it would seem.
A newly issued petition on the whitehouse.gov web site is calling for charges of treason to be brought against President Obama.
It sites three main arguments for the treason charges – surrendering war-making powers to foreign entities, refusing to secure America’s borders, and giving aid and comfort to the enemy.
The petition appears to be in response to one started just a few days earlier, calling for 47 Republicans who sent a letter to Iran to be charged with the same. That effort has thus far garnered over 260,000 signatures.
Via We the People:
WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Bring charges of treason upon Barack Hussein Obama
1. Surrendering sovereign U.S. war-making to foreign powers and international authorities by attacking Libya without consulting Congress, in violation of U.S. Constitution Article 1, Section 8 and U.S. Code Title 50, Chapter 33:1541-1548;
2. Refusing to secure our broken borders from illegal alien invasion, international criminal incursion, and terrorist cadre penetration, in violation of U.S. Constitution, Article III, Section 3 and Article IV, Section 4
3. Adhering to the enemies of the United States, giving them aid and comfort, as witnessed by consorting with, supporting and installing to powerful Federal positions persons who in writing, word and deed have called for and promoted the overthrow of America’s constitutionally guaranteed Republican form of government.
As Headline Politics reported, President Obama is actually just as guilty, if not more so, of the same act of treason under the very definition being used by liberals against his Republican colleagues.
In 2008, then candidate Obama sent former Ambassador William G. Miller to Tehran to assure the regime that American policies towards Iran were about to change when he becomes President. Essentially, he tried influencing foreign policy behind President Bush’s back.
This new petition has only received 785 signatures as of this posting, a far cry from the 100,000 that would actually require the White House to issue a response.
