Developing A Doctrine Of Treason In America – Part 2 …IMG iStock-Sergei-Q

New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- s we maintained in our first article posted on Ammoland, “Does the Biden Administration’s Assault on the Second Amendment Amount to Treason,” one should be circumspect in the application of ‘Treason’—this so there is no mistake in our understanding of the import of it, lest we dilute its significance—attaching the dire duo labels of ‘Treason’ and ‘TRAITOR’ to those who never warranted it, but happened nonetheless to be branded with it, and crucified for it.

And we know whereof we speak: Donald Trump, and those closest to him, those who assisted him in his run for the U.S. Presidency, including Cabinet-level Officers; close friends and associates; even members of his own family have branded and crucified the 45th U.S. President and those connected closely to him. And now with Trump out-of-office—whether the loss of a Second Term was due to a fair and disappointing election outcome, or chicanery of the highest order, those who replaced Donald Trump with a National embarrassment, in the form of a corrupt and senile shell of a man, one, Joseph Biden, must continue with the charade.

The forces that crush a Nation and its people into submission now focus their attention on one-third of the population that supported the “Make America Great” agenda that sought to reset the Nation’s course back toward the vision of the founders of the Republic.

Through an orchestrated program of deflection, distraction, and diversion the Nation’s Obstructors and Destructors who control the legacy Press and social media draw the public’s attention away from Federal Government policies designed to dismantle the Republic in clear violation of and defiance to the U.S. Constitution. All in an effort channel the public’s reasonable, rational concern to the Nation’s Dissenters—those Americans who seek to preserve the Nation as a free Constitutional Republic—treating true Patriots as improbable Traitors, and treating possible Traitors as improbable Patriots. And this topsy-turvy elaborate propaganda campaign reflects the Founders’ gravest concerns, their most deep-seated fears.

The Founders were well aware that unscrupulous, usurpers of the sovereign authority of the American people would damage, and bring to utter ruin the lives and character of innocent people, and do for any of multiple reasons: anger and rage; spite and jealousy, or even for no other reason than political expediency or perceived political exigency.

“English treason law influenced America’s founding fathers as they crafted the U.S. Constitution. Specifically, America’s founders wished to develop a treason doctrine that—unlike English treason doctrine—could not be used to suppress political adversaries.” United States v. Hodges: Developments of Treason and the Role of the Jury, 97 Denver L. Rev. 117, by Jennifer Elisa Chapman, Jennifer Elisa Chapman, Ryan H. Easley Research Fellow, University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law.



The Study Of Treason Is The Study Of History

“The study of treason is really the study of history. No other constitutional provision is as deeply rooted in English history as the Treason Clause. William Blackstone wrote that treason ‘imports a betraying, treachery, or breach of faith.’ Treason Blackstone further noted that treason against the sovereign—termed ‘high treason’—amounts to the ‘highest civil crime.’ Due to the gravity of the offense, the crime of treason must therefore be precisely ascertained. ‘For if the crime of high treason be indeterminate, this alone . . . is sufficient to make the Government degenerate into arbitrary power.’

“Treason is the highest crime known to law. It is more serious than even murder: the murderer violates a single person or at most only a few, whereas treason cuts at the welfare and safety of all members of society. And the punishment for treason has always underscored the gravity of the offense.

The Founders were deeply concerned about the misuse of treason by a rogue Government that would use “treason” for unlawful, nefarious purposes.

If there be Treason in our midst, we must recognize the legal contours and parameters of it in the manner the founders of our Republic intended for it to be used, as elucidated further in case law. Thus, before we apply it, we must be reasonably sure of our case against those we deem to have committed it. And, once assured of the efficacy of our case, proceed forward aggressively forward, to bring those charged with treason to account for their treacherous actions against the Nation and its people.

Let us be clear. It is not enough to say, for example, that such individuals in Government that have committed treason should simply resign from their posts or should, if they refuse to resign, then be fired.

Several media pundits deplore the actions of Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken; Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin; White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan; General Mark A. Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; General Kenneth F. McKenzie, Director of Strategic Plans and Policy on the Joint Staff. And, these media pundits have voiced, vociferously, their anger over the manner in which these individuals handled the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan—a complete debacle and have demanded Biden fire these people, starting with General Milley. But that is really just about as far as they will go. And, Biden, for his part, not unsurprisingly, stated his support for General Milley and others.

Nonetheless, some media pundits in the last couple of days, at least on Fox News, have even made reference to “treason.” See, e.g., episode on Tucker Carlson. None of them has suggested impeachment of any of Biden’s people except, perhaps, in a couple of instances pertaining to Biden himself, and, even so, no one in the Fox Press Corps, or in any other media organization that we are aware of, has suggested that Biden himself should be impeached specifically for the crime of “Treason.”

But what has taken place in Afghanistan under Biden’s watch, and the many devastating, deadly, horrific repercussions from that debacle which are just beginning to play out in Afghanistan and here in the U.S. and that are having a ripple effect around the globe, cannot be simply wallpapered over through mere resignations or firings of Biden officials even if Biden were to do so.

Americans are witnessing precisely what was meant to happen, is meant to happen, a meticulously contrived, and executed series of scenes and acts of a monstrous Shakespearian Play. Be it comedy or tragedy depends on one’s perspective. But it is all preplanned, and prearranged, carried out sequentially, having commenced with a flurry of executive orders and actions designed to unravel the order and stability Trump had brought for our Nation, and, by extension, this order and stability that Trump had brought for the world.

We, at the Arbalest Quarrel, are going under the assumption that, whether by sheer ineptitude and incompetence, high officials of the Harris-Biden Administration—and this must include Joe Biden himself, and any and all secret handlers that had a hand in this, and we look at one example here. A real “cluster f**k” that transpired at Kabul airport involving the drawdown of American troops in Afghanistan and the deaths of Americans during that drawdown—Did Do what they intended To-Do. Even if the consequences of their actions were not what they had in mind, can those policy decisions support a legal finding of Treason of any one or all of them. And we will look at other policy decisions and the execution of those decisions as well.

Through all that we do in the articles to follow, we ask that you etch in your mind the following, for we will be constantly coming back to it:

Article 3, Section 3, Clause 1

“Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.
And, “18 U.S. Code § 2381 – Treason,”

The third part of our series on treason follows forthwith.

ABC News Does anybody really believe this statement. Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign has released a summary of the candidate’s medical history, showing “a healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency,” according to Dr. Kevin C. O’Conner, the director of executive medicine at The George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates and Biden’s physician during the Obama administration Then there is this According to O’Connor’s report, Biden stands 5 feet, 11.65 inches tall and weighs 178 pounds, and is currently being treated for four different conditions, including non-valvular atrial fibrillation (A-fib)–a type of irregular… Read more »

For those of us who love our country I am sure that is all who express their thoughts here. The revolution is under way not by we the people by those elected and selling out our way of life to the communist socialist agenda all for greed.
I never thought that such evil people could show up night after night mandating us the american people to go quietly into the night. Something we all should think about. Fear is not a lifestyle this is the card the Democrats & Republicans are playing over and over till their lies come true.

Why hasn’t Gen. Milley been Court Marshalled? That’s aside from his exposure to the highest civil crime of Treason. He bucked rank, basically, but with the Commander-in-Chief. Gen. Mike Flynn was investigated and charged for his “also routine” conversation with the Russian Ambassador. Why not just apply that standard, that Dem’s set? I have heard zero talking about that! Dem’s expose themselves because everything they do, they destroy/ruin everything they touch, is so at odds with how things are supposed to be in reality. The claims they make never pass muster, except with the MSM, the beliefs they hold can’t… Read more »

It seems like the absence of charges of treason in the US within our system of courts has been, “‘[S]ufficient to make the Government degenerate into arbitrary power.’”

So, Mr. Blackstone, that pendulum swings both ways. Maybe you should have considered THAT.

Our nation has utterly degenerated into corruption, tyranny, overreach, and treason, with the destruction and deprivation of all rights being SOP now for nearly all agents of government, from elected officials and legislators to appointed and hired judges and enforcers.

Of course, they all keep investing themselves, and clearing themselves of any wrongdoing.

I have no problem with people expressing their opinion, owning guns, or wanting justice. I am “guilty” of all three. I DO have a problem with a lot of the irresponsible rhetoric I read here. You have only helped prove my point: because I have expressed MY opinion and taken a stand against some of the hate-mongering nonsense some people spew here, YOU irrationally accuse me of being spineless, clueless, and opposed to gun ownership, suggest I don’t support free speech, then tell me I should move to China all because you don’t like what I have to say. You’re… Read more »

Too many who post on Ammoland, safe in their anonymity, self-righteously vilify their fellow citizens for not agreeing 100% with their opinions, throw accusations of treason at will, and suggest violence as the solution to all perceived ills. Incompetence is not treason. Holding an opposing or even a more moderate viewpoint is not treason. Threats of violence are not an effective means of convincing opponents or the undecided of the veracity of one’s position. They have the opposite effect. Name calling , stereotyping, making unfounded accusations are all immature and counter-productive responses. Grow up, people! Try doing some real research,… Read more »

general milley should face a general court marshal over his actions and if found guilty Leavenworth or firing squad depending on findings. A military trial, and he is not the only one that should stand trial

Milley Vanilli committed treason. Dementia Joe committed treason a number of times, even before January 2021. Multiple times as VP and while unemployed. Obama committed treason. We Know what Punishment goes with their acts.

How about grifting $15-20 Billion in NRA member donations that could’ve saved the USA from enemies foreign & domestic? Treason?

The NRA has been complicit in the treasonous conspiracy to destroy natural rights in the US for a century or more. They are frauds and scammers. Anyone who knows how to use neurons should be able to understand that if you have to lobby for your rights, you already lost them.

What is the penalty for a convicted traitor? Are there different ‘degrees’ if traitorous guilt? Are there different penalties for a civilian traitor as compared to someone in the US military? Remember Julius and Ethel Rosenberg?

Alan in NH, thank you for your questions. In Part 1 of the Arbalest Quarrel series on “Treason,” we explained that Federal Statute lays out the penalties for treason. The penalty for conviction of treason extends from a minimal monetary fine and imprisonment for a period of years, OR death. Unlike unjustified homicides, including Murder (First and Second Degree Murder and, in some jurisdictions, Third Degree Murder) and Voluntary and Involuntary Manslaughter, there is no sliding scale for Treason. Treason is treated as the attempted Murder of an entire Nation and its people. to consider “degrees” of Treason is therefore… Read more »

Jonesy, The Arbalest Quarrel will be delving into the actions of particular individuals, past and present, in a future article, after we lay out the specifics of the crime of “Treason.” As we have mentioned before and will be referring to over and again, the word, ‘Treason,’ is narrowly defined by the framers of the Constitution. That was deliberate, and, as we had said in our first article, there has been, in American history, only a handful of cases brought against individuals on a charge of Treason, and very few convictions. In the lengthier AQ article posted on our website,… Read more »

“Oppression” is the danger.

Oppression requires enforcers who will follow any order to enforce any law against certain people.

The “treason” discussion is missing the point of what is actually happening.

Dental plans and pension plans and those “non-civilians” who will do almost anything to keep them is what is going to destroy The United States of America.

The argument you are making here is the very one the Framers sought to prevent as a reasoning for the charge of treason. That you are making it here under the guise of some kind of validity is…telling.

You’re right. That’s why I’ve been calling for making Communism and socialism (as communism-lite) to be made illegal in this country. There’s freedom of ideas and there’s destroying the recognized and approved form of governance. Two widely different things.
