I want everybody to just stop and think about what you’re hearing and seeing from the Progressive-Left Liberal Socialist-Democrats today in America. They are arguing, not discussing issues. They are hurting, not helping with discussion points. Their “my way or the highway” approach is not helping anything. Plus their protests to counter Pro-Trump rally’s are never peaceful. So just what is it that they’re doing?
Well, think about THIS...
Former President Barack Obama is STILL in the mix, while in the background, reaching out to a handful of congressmen and Senators, plus the Democrat Party's leadership to discuss the future of the organization. He is more than just a person with “suggestions,” he has an agenda and America is seeing it; all of the protests and backlash at our current President. Do you remember the “Fundamental Transformation of America?” It has never left and is back with a vengeance.
Could this be sedition?
Sedition: A revolt or an incitement to revolt against established authority, usually in the form of Treason or Defamation against government.
Sedition is the crime of revolting or inciting revolt against a government. However, because of the broad protection of free speech under the First Amendment, prosecutions for sedition are rare. Nevertheless, sedition remains a crime in the United States under 18 U.S.C.A. § 2384 (2000), a federal statute that punishes seditious conspiracy, and 18 U.S.C.A. § 2385 (2000), which outlaws advocating the overthrow of the federal government by force.
Generally, a person may be punished for sedition only when he or she makes statements that create a clear and present danger to rights that the government may lawfully protect (schenck v. united states, 249 U.S. 47, 39 S. Ct. 247, 63 L. Ed. 470 ).
The crime of seditious conspiracy is committed when two or more persons in any state or U.S. territory conspire to levy war against the U.S. government. A person commits the crime of advocating the violent overthrow of the federal government when she willfully advocates or teaches the overthrow of the government by force, publishes material that advocates the overthrow of the government by force, or organizes persons to overthrow the government by force. A person found guilty of seditious conspiracy or advocating the overthrow of the government may be fined and sentenced to up to 20 years in prison. States also maintain laws that punish similar advocacy and conspiracy against the state government.
Governments have made sedition illegal since time immemorial. The precise acts that constitute sedition have varied. In the United States, Congress, in the late eighteenth century, believed that government should be protected from "false, scandalous and malicious" criticisms. Toward this end, Congress passed the Sedition Act of 1798, which authorized the criminal prosecution of persons who wrote or spoke falsehoods about the government, Congress, the president, or the vice president. The act was to expire with the term of President John Adams.
Think about all of this and remember all that’s being stated are the provable facts of the matter. So what should We the People do now to support our 45th President? I’m sure you can see there is a concerted effort to remove and replace him per the discussion coming from the Progressive-Left Liberal Socialists that oppose everything he is doing.
America is still in big trouble! This peril requires our continued vigilance and concerted effort to once again Drain The Swamp in 2018. We simply must rid America of the very creatures Socialism has created.
Think about that and get back to me…
