Aid and Comfort

February 26, 2015 @

The Constitution of the United States provides a specific definition of treason against our nation. Article 3, Section 3 of the Constitution states: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” This has been legally interpreted as meaning that any action that seeks to strengthen our country’s enemies or weaken our ability to defend ourselves against our enemies can be classified as treason. This can be direct support for the enemy or even an attempt to provide support.

There is no question that the enemy that we face and many other counties face is Islamic Jihad. It has manifested itself as Al Qaeda, the Taliban, ISIS, and other groups that promote the radical Islamic agenda of destroying or subjugating every country in the world to the Muslim religion. It is a religion that condones placing women in slavery, outlawing basic human freedomaid and comforts, and killing its opponents in barbaric ways.

The following is a factual listing of the actions of the person who is masquerading as the President of the United States. You can decide for yourself if any or all of these fit the definition of treason by providing aid and comfort to the enemy.

1. Since taking office in 2009, Obama has had numerous known terrorists released from Guantanamo Bay, some without the prior notice to the members of Congress required by law. This includes the release of five top Taliban leaders in exchange for an Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl. At least one of these Taliban leaders is back in action with the Taliban and many of the other released terrorists have rejoined the Islamic Jihad against America.

2. Has openly supported the Muslim Brotherhood since he took office. He has supported it in the Middle East and appointed active members of the brotherhood to his administration including to sensitive positions in the Department of Homeland Security. The Muslim Brotherhood has a manifesto that openly calls for the imposition of radical Sharia law on the entire world and the destruction of all other forms of government and law.

3. Obama withdrew American troops from Iraq without leaving any forces behind to help secure the country, as was requested by the Iraqi government. This created a vacuum that has been filled by ISIS and affiliates of Al Qaeda.

4. Obama imposed rules of engagement on American troops in Afghanistan that limited their ability to be effective both offensively and defensively and led to the unnecessary deaths of American soldiers.

5. He refused to call the massacre of American soldiers at Ft Hood by Major Nidal Hasan, a committed Islamic fanatic, a terrorist attack, but labeled it as an act of workplace violence.

6. Obama released the identity of Seal Team 6 and that they had killed Bin Laden. Many people believe that this led to the deaths of many team members in Afghanistan.

7. Obama deliberately lied about Al Qaeda being decimated when he was aware it was getting stronger.

8. He covered up for weeks the fact that the slaughter of Americans in Benghazi, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, was a terrorist attack despite the fact that the White House knew from the beginning that it was. He then refused to allow any rescue operations to be launched.

9. Has unilaterally eased sanctions on Iran after cutting a temporary deal that is favorable only to Iran. He has continued to allow Iran to kick a final deal down the road and they can continue to enrich uranium during these delays. That will allow them to build an operable nuclear bomb within a few months. Iran is also being allowed to acquire and test missiles that can be used against Israel, targets in Europe, and even U.S. targets.

10. He has seriously damaged our relationship with our allies and by allowing the release of sensitive intelligence information has seriously damaged our ability to get intelligence about possible attacks on Americans around the world.

11. Obama has opened our southern border so that criminals and terrorists have easy access to our country.

12. Obama also refused to acknowledge the threat of ISIS for over a year, even after being briefed repeatedly on the rise of ISIS.

13. Once he was forced into taking action against ISIS, it has been weak and mostly ineffective, with Obama micro managing our airstrikes so that many of the targets are empty buildings and vehicles.

14. Now he has made a speech asking the Congress to give him authority to fight ISIS, but has broadcast his intentions to the enemy that the actions will be very limited and not an all-out effort against the Islamic terrorists. Of course, he also still refuses to acknowledge that Al Qaeda and ISIS are in fact forces of Islamic Jihad.

15. He has minimized the brutal actions of ISIS by equating the Christian Crusades of a thousand years ago to what ISIS is doing now to innocent Christian men, women, and children as well as other Muslims who resist their radical views.

16. He held a secret meeting in the White House with Muslim leaders including some with direct contacts with terrorist organizations.

In my opinion, this is much more than political correctness run amok. The actions described above are those that clearly provide aid and comfort to the enemies of not just the United States, but to the entire free world. Let me know what you think.

    Can there be any doubt about this? Time for this Country to charge him & remove him from Office. Instead they ratify Eric Holder in a dress, for Attorney General.

    Impeachment will accomplish nothing.
    He should be ARRESTED and tried for treason.
    But who or what body begins the process of arrest?
    Does the Sargent at Arms need a warrant?
    Who issues the warrant?

    I agree with all the points made above. But is impeachment even possible when our U S Senate cannot even control the Senate with a majority?

    The charges that could be levied against the so called CIC traitor it is hard to keep up with. Impeach him NOW!

    I have said from day one that Obama is a pawn of Islam and Communism and I stick by that assessment. He has aided and abetted the enemy of the United States, he has lied under oath while in Office, he is a thief (accepting grants as a foreign exchange student)and using somebody else’s Social Security Card, and presenting the American People with a falsified Birth Document. I have never believe, or will believe, that is was eligible to hold the Office of the President. The Democratic Party has committed fraud and so have all those associated with Obama (including the Clintons). The man should be tried for Treason and hung! End of story.

    It’s time to burn Washington to the ground and start over. I’m tired of the idiots in office. Someone needs to hold these people accountable for what comes out of their mouth. If they say it and it’s not truth, send them to jail. If they say they will or won’t do something and they do the opposite, jail! America is falling apart at home and abroad, we need to get it back, right the ship, and kick these liberals out of the country. I am tired of it and angry over it.

    I have been stating this very ISSUE for years now. Our congress has turned a blind eye to his treason, because they themselves are committing treason by playing the game with him.
    If they are not against him, they are for him.
    If they did not stop The Muslim Brotherhood from being appointed to National Security positions they contributed to his treason and their own and to the demise of National Security.
    The GLOBE recognizes the Muslim Brotherhood has a Terrorist organization. But Obama allowed, the Congress allowed them access to the FBI, CIA, CFR to remove themselves from our own terrorist list.
    If this isn’t reason to TY him and Hang him, then America no longer exists

    Only a citizen can be charged with treason, Barry aka obama is not a citizen, that will be his defense.

    I agree with all of the above, However, we need to try him for treason, so that all the bad things he has done(Executive Orders and His eligibility to be President) can be undone. Otherwise, through impeachment, we will be stuck with his actions.

    I am just praying that someone somewhere is already turning the wheels of justice to bring charges of treason. He most definitely meets the criteria, and he is loading govt positions with the enemy. The spokespeople for major governmental agencies spout venom just like him. And the press sugar coats everything he says and does. You are right, Mr. Connelley, not impeachment but treason! Giuliani was spot on with his comments. Traitors do not love this country!!!

    Of course I agree with you that charges for treason are justified by the many incidents mentioned. Impeachment is not the punishment for these crimes. He should be tried for treason and so should all of his collaborators. Our country cannot continue with this president and the many people that have been appointed by him to various govt. positions to lead and protect us. They are our enemies as well as the obvious ones. I’m so glad to see that you have brought forth this discussion and hope that you will go forth with plans for the necessary actions to make needed changes. Thank you for your honesty and courage! WE THE PEOPLE ARE BEHIND YOU COMPLETELY!!

    Food For Thought:
    Could Obama be “teasing” the right to get them to start impeachment action? What will be the reaction of the black community along with the hard core Progressives?
    Given the propensity of this administration to exacerbate racial issues and theoretical influence of the Democratic Socialists of America, the Communist Party of America, and the assortment of the left bent on the kinds of violence we saw in Ferguson, is a race riot out of the question? If this riot began, could it spread nation wide? How would Obama deal with it? Could he impose Martial Law? Coould he concurrently impose the tenets of the new net neutrality to squelch opposing viewpoints and criticism?

    Excellent response Deanbob. You have pointed out many possible steps this admin. could take to incite already tense issues and further throw this nation into chaos with the idea of using it to further his agenda of control of everything with martial law. Food for thought indeed!

    I too, have questioned the possibility of a charge of Treason, but our nation is so fractured and divided, I have about lost hope in any action being taken against him. At the very least, there should be an investigation into the crimes he has committed against this country, his lawlessness, cover- ups and lies, to name a few.

    I really want what is best for God’s country (sorry Israel, but I truly believe it) and am willing to forgive. But, we must educate those who must work so hard to provide a living they are too tired to read and investigate this matter. I am not sure what % of the country really understands the depth of Obama’s ‘fundamental transformation’. Check this out (Google):

    Dean bob makes a very good point. There seems to be a large % of our population that do not understand Barack Obama’s intent to “fundamentally change this country.”

    Thank you Deanbob for your insight. Yes, Obama has wanted martial law for some time. He has inreased spying on conservatives, insighted racism (remember the Harvard professor, the florida teenager, and then Ferguson? George Soros, his mentor, paid thousands for support of the Ferguson riots and signs0, tried to monitor communication, etc.If you want to know what he will do next, look to European history. For those who know European history and particularly those who have lived it and escaped, the past 6 years have been the most troubling in our lifetime. A large percentage of Americans are uninformed and naive which is also scary and many refuse to look beyond the controlled media outlet news stories. Every executive action taken by Barack Obama has in some way hurt the American taxpayer economically, racially and reduced our freedoms while pandering to countries who support jihad. He declared war on Libya without Congressional approval saying that we would” give humanitarian aid.” Within 2 weeks he had colluded with the UN with airstrikes and obliterated a country that had been our ally in the Middle East. Gaddafi loved Condoleeza Rice and responded to every one of her demands. Declaring war on a country without Congressional approval is impeachable. He has acted as a dictator rather than a president with the same disastrous results. He will only be stopped when his term ends and hopefully those who support his agenda can also be replaced.
