Is treason going out of fashion?

J.B. Williams talks about Committing Treason: Providing Aid and Comfort Adhering and Abetting (Canada Free Press 05dc08). Starting with the definition and the court established criteria, he then looks at the statements of Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) on November 14, 2005.

According to the definition of treason spelled out in the U.S. Constitution, and Senator Rockefeller’s own account, there has not been a more clear-cut case of treason in modern history. Yet the so-called American press has been completely silent on the subject, which is of course, a form of “aiding and abetting” in and of itself.

and the conclusion?

No American politician has the nerve to publicly accuse another American politician of treason today. The old media are complicit in the effort and nearly half of the American population sees nothing wrong with undermining their country, its principles, its security or its troops, especially if it somehow serves their political agenda.

Where does that leave real Americans truly concerned about our national security, the American way of life and our children’s future?

The words treason and sedition are beginning to surface in whispers. The concern about such behavior can be seen in complaints about questioning patriotism even though no such questioning has occurred. People are worried that their political attacks may be perceived as treason rather than as appropriate criticism. But rather than reforming their attacks, they accuse anyone who doesn’t go along with their false reality of accusing them – in a preemptive manner.

When political leaders, such as Senator Rockefeller, make statements that are near confessions of treason, they should not be surprised to hear themselves described in such terms. When political leaders bash and trash rather than critique and suggest, they too should not be surprised to have it noted that they are engaged in destruction and not construction.
