"The 47", GOP Treachery, And The Roots Of Undermining A President



Image via The Daily Kos....

I listened intently last week as on of my favorite and most learned television new network hosts spoke about the GOP "47."  Lawrence O'Donnell correctly posited that "The 47" did not commit treason in the legal sense, nor did they commit an act of sedition in violation of the never litigated Logan Act. O'Donnell's legal perspective heard and accepted, however the Logan Act definition below (while from WIKI) concisely states the there could be more:
"It was intended to prevent the undermining of the government's position."
Logan Act
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The Logan Act (Stat. 613, 18 U.S.C. § 953, enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments having a dispute with the U.S. It was intended to prevent the undermining of the government's position.[2] The Act was passed following George Logan's unauthorized negotiations with France in 1798, and was signed into law by President John Adams on January 30, 1799. The Act was last amended in 1994, and violation of the Logan Act is a felony.

 "It was intended to prevent the undermining of the government's position."

The Wiki author inserted the statement, and if accurate, itcaptures the essence of "The 47's" "undermining and obstruction."

If you have a few minutes and want a worthwhile opinion on "The 47" and the genesis of their "undermining", we offer a piece from a Friend of the TPI: Eric Wattree.

It Is In The Best Interest Of The United States To Keep This Latest Act Of Republican Treachery On The Front Burner

It Is In The Best Interest Of The United States To Keep This Latest Act Of Republican Treachery On The Front Burner
.
The Republicans love to investigate everything, and if ANYTHING calls for a congressional investigation, this does.  The instigator of the Republican 47 treason letter was freshman senator, Tom Cotton, who received a campaign donation of a million dollars from a pro-Israeli organization, helping to make the GOP the majority in the United States Senate. Thereafter, the Republican majority in congress invited Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before a joint session of congress to give a speech undermining the interest of the United States. Thus, these 47 Republican senators were acting against the interest of the United States government as AGENTS of a foreign power.  That's TREASON!
.
One of the biggest problems that liberals and progressives have is they're not politically aggressive enough. They let things like this latest GOP treason be swept under the rug. They've got to stop that, and stop allowing these un-American fascists to wrap themselves in the American flag. That's what's allowed them to drag America perilously close to a fascist state, and I don't intend that as hyperbole. If America doesn't wake up - and fast! - these creeps are going to destroy this country. 
. 
The GOP and their corporate cronies are in a no-holds-barred, single-minded struggle to subvert our democracy and turn this nation into a corporate feudalist state, and shouldn't take but one more Republican stint in the White House. Due to the rapidly changing demographics in this country, the GOP and their filthy rich cronies have become desperate, and as we've just seen, they are ruthless, reckless, totally oblivious to both American law and tradition, completely devoid of a sense of limits. So if they EVER gain power again, they are NEVER going to give it up - regardless to WHAT they have to do. Think about the ramifications of that. It's chilling.
.
And as I pointed out in a previous article, if you're a White social conservative who takes comfort in the ramifications mentioned above, don't, because the rich, fiscal conservatives, don't care any more about poor and middle class White people than they do Muslims, minorities, or gays. You're only being used to keep the working class divided, because the GOP's agenda is so toxic to the American people that their very viability is completely dependent upon maintaining an environment of hatred, animosity, and strife among the poor and middle class. So if they win, they're going to toss aside social conservatives with the thumb and forefinger like soiled toilet tissue.
.
This Republican 47 Treason Letter isn't the first time the GOP has committed treason against this country, so it wasn't "an accident," and they're not sorry about it AT ALL. They're just sorry - AND SHOCKED - that (for once), it didn't get past the American people's attention.
.
Can you just imagine what the Republican Party would do with this if this situation were reversed!!!? The Democrats need to take note - not just for political advantage, but in the best interest of the nation, because these people are further and further out of hand.

Here are other instances of Republican  treasonous behavior:
