Do Government Policies Aimed At Disarming The Citizenry Rise To The Level Of Treason? iStock-Sergei-Q

New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- As we stated in our first article posted on AmmoLand News, “Does the Biden Administration’s Assault on the Second Amendment Amount to ‘Treason,’” one must be circumspect in the application of a Treason hypothesis. For, if we are careless in our understanding of the import of it, we risk diluting its significance, mistakenly attaching the duo labels of ‘Treason’ and ‘Traitor’ to those who never warranted it but happened nonetheless to be branded with it and then crucified for it.

And we know whereof we speak: Recall the branding of “Traitor” to our 45th President, Donald Trump, and recall the crucifying of him and those closest to him: Those individuals who assisted him in his run for U.S. Presidency; Cabinet-level Officers; close friends and associates; even members of his own immediate family. All of them have been incessantly, rapaciously, relentlessly, viciously attacked and hounded because of service to, or mere association with, the purported traitor, Donald Trump.

Trump was called a Traitor because of his alleged collusion with Russia—false as it turned out; a complete fabrication. A pretext to get him out-of-office.

But what was Donald Trump’s worst “crime” for which he was tacitly presumed a traitor—for which he was called an autocrat and a threat to democracy among claims that he damaged democracy. It was this: support for the right of the people to keep and bear arms.

America’s armed citizenry was always the greatest fear of the Neo-Marxists and Neoliberal Globalists because an armed citizenry poses the greatest threat to the New World Order to come.

The Heritage Foundation, on September 9, 2020, reproducing an article by the Federalist Society, said this about Trump’s record on the Second Amendment after four years in Office:

“In his most recent State of the Union address President Donald Trump promised the American people, “So long as I am President, I will always protect your Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms.” This was certainly a welcome statement from any elected official, particularly from the nation’s chief executive during a time of unprecedented attacks on the Second Amendment by many local, state, and federal lawmakers.

But how has the President’s first term stacked up against his grand promise? When we step back from the hype and honestly assess Trump’s performance with respect to the Second Amendment, what do we actually find? Fortunately, when we take a hard look at the bad and the good in three important categories—the President’s rhetoric, policy, and judicial nominations—it is evident that Trump has gotten the Second Amendment right more often than he has gotten it wrong.

In his first term, President Trump largely lived up to his promise to protect Americans’ Second Amendment rights. There have been a few missteps along the way, but on the whole, the Trump Administration has kept its word when it comes to our right to keep and bear arms.” www.heritage.org/firearms/commentary/second-amendment-grade-president-trump-so-far.

But the words of the title, “So Far,” in the above commentary on Trump’s Presidency must, unfortunately, read, “At the End Of” Trump’s Presidency, for here would be no Second Term in Office. The unlawful machinations of Neo-Marxist Internationalists and Mega-Billionaire Neoliberal Globalists would see to that.

Trump is now out-of-office. And it matters not at this point whether losing a Second Term was due to a fair and disappointing election outcome, or chicanery of the highest order. The latter is the likely conclusion to draw from the evidence.

Just as Trump’s legacy is being shredded, Americans face a more pressing and vexing problem: protecting the U.S. Constitution from being shredded, as well; and preserving a free Republic that is being systematically dismantled.

Americans are witness to a meticulously orchestrated, carefully calibrated and executed series of scenes and acts unfolding according to schedule as if from a monstrous Shakespearian Play, played out on the Nation and the world as Stage.

The goal of this elaborate, extravagant, carefully orchestrated policy agenda now unfolding in the Nation, is to dismantle the underpinnings of the most powerful, successful, and prosperous Nation on Earth.

This involves,

One, dissolving the carefully constructed demarcation of powers and authority existent between the three Branches;

Two, undercutting the doctrine of Federalism that has to this point operated efficiently and effectively to carve out and delineate the Federal Government’s authority and that of the States. This was done to prevent either one of them from exerting supreme power over the other, and to prevent both from undermining the authority of the American people, in whom ultimate sole supreme authority rests.

As for the last, the Harris-Biden Administration’s policy aims are directed to:

  • Constraining the right of free speech
  • Disrupting one’s fundamental right to engage in association for the advancement of beliefs and ideas, free from government surveillance and interference
  • Eliminating the citizen’s right to be secure from unreasonable searches and seizures of property by government
  • Undermining a citizen’s fundamental right of due process and equal protection under the Law
  • Disarming the citizenry.

Concerning the last, the attack on the right of the people to keep and bear arms as the final fail-safe mechanism to prevent tyranny is the most disturbing and alarming. For only by force of arms can the American people truthfully be able to successfully repel attempts to dismantle a free Republic. If that were to occur it would thrust America into a new Governmental construct: a transnational world order that does not merely diminish the citizen’s sacrosanct and inviolate right of selfhood and personal autonomy but destroys that supreme unalienable right, rendering the citizen’s spirit broken, his life subject to the whims of Government.

In the end, it was always the American people, not Trump, who were the true target of the Neo-Marxist Internationalists and the mega-billionaire Neoliberal Globalists. Trump merely represented the wishes and desires of Americans who saw their Nation stolen from them. Most Americans saw their sacred rights shredded: the right of free speech; the right to be secure from unreasonable searches and seizures of their property by Government; freedom from unlawful detention; and their right to keep and bear arms, necessary to secure their freedom from tyranny and maintain their sovereignty over Government.

Under the Harris-Biden Administration and Neo-Marxist-led Congress, Americans are witnessing the entire collapse of a free Constitutional Republic, brought about NOT by mere ineptitude and incompetence but by cold, calculated, callous, caustic, and cruel design.

The Administration evidently wants instability—social, economic, and health-related upheaval and unrest to occur in the Country.

Do Governmental policy decisions to date support a legal finding of treason by Biden and those serving in the Administration? to answer this question it is necessary to understand the law of treason—treason in the legal sense, not merely in a common or rhetorical or theatrical sense.

It is only through a keen understanding of the law of treason, that one can establish the elements of treason, applying those elements to the actions of Biden and others, and therefrom know whether those actions amount to treason. If so, the American people have a sound and solid basis to bring Biden and others to account for their treason against the Nation, against its Constitution, and against its people.

Through all that we do in our articles on Treason, please etch in your mind the definition for it as set forth in the U.S. Constitution.

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,”

“Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

In the next article we undertake an examination of the elements of treason in the U.S. so that we can apply those elements to the actions of Biden and others in his Administration.

Our end goal in this project is to decode the meaning of the word, ‘Treason,’ to ascertain whether specific policy choices of Biden and others Do In Fact amount to Treason, namely, those policies directed to:

  • weakening the security of the United States,
  • undercutting the Nation’s Bill of Rights,
  • undermining societal stability by fomenting dissension among the American people, indoctrinating America’s children, introducing millions of unassimilable illegal aliens
  • into the Country along with murderous international criminal cartels and international terrorists, among other things;
  • subjecting the American citizenry to unlawful harassment
  • treating law-abiding Americans as “domestic terrorists” through distortion of laws designed to combat “international Islamic, terrorists,
  • eroding the separation of powers doctrine and the doctrine of federalism, and
  • disarming the American citizenry, leaving them defenseless against increasing criminal predation, and threaten the citizenry’s sovereignty over Government

The question is whether any one or more of these policies directed against the Nation, its Constitution, and its people, amount to “levying war against them” and/or encompass “adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” We shall see.

It will be understood as the ultimate shot fired at a free people. 150 million + American citizens own firearms, and 1/2 the US military will refuse to enforce.

It’s mind boggling how someone can make so many excuses and apologies for a President who enacted arms laws not once but twice in his first two years in office (more arms laws than the previous two administrations combined) AND sought to do so much more. This is exactly why we keep inching closer and closer to an Australia style gun ban, or at the very least, another 90’s style AWB which with a little research you’ll find Trump was in support of and willing to consider doing again.

No need to apologize, Stag. It’s always possible to misconstrue one’s intent or point a person wishes to make. Such is the problem with communication and especially with written communication. Language is unfortunately inherently subject to ambiguity, vagueness, and innuendo. No one is telepathic, at least as far as we know. And that’s a good thing. If we misconstrued your intent, we apologize as well. Thanks.

Taking a 2-day seminar from some other doctors on how to look at pilot dicks to see what STD they picked up in Asia doesn’t qualify her as an expert on COVID-19.

What are you talking about? Deemed insufficient for what? I told you I have no plans to get the vaccine because I’m not in a high risk group. I stated I believe everyone should be able to make their own decision on whether to get the vaccine. I stated that most of the COVID-19 admissions to the hospital local to me are people who didn’t get the vaccine. That seemed to set you off. I wrote that Theresa is no expert in virology, you disagreed, and that seemed to set you off again. I have no opinion on all the… Read more »

Problem is, this is something you can never get wrong. And if you are an elected official, you need to undo it before it causes any harm.

“In his first term, President Trump largely lived up to his promise to protect Americans’ Second Amendment rights. There have been a few missteps along the way, but on the whole, the Trump Administration has kept its word when it comes to our right to keep and bear arms.” This is how we get never-ending gun control. It would have been much better to say “Trump flip-flopped on the 2nd Amendment issue and, as a result, received less votes from people who care about the 2nd Amendment.” Apologizing for the flip-flop only emboldens people like the military veteran Ron DeSantis… Read more »

I’d like to see a debate (on the internet) between Theresa Long and Owen Price. Bring all your data, each person gets equal time. Have a tough moderator (civilian, non-government employee) who doesn’t allow either one off the hook. Allow 12 hours to thoroughly address the issues.

Let them fight.

I like spirited, transparent debates. There are not enough of them. I’d like to hear the “non-civilian” self-appointed experts with contrary views go at it. People should be allowed to make their own decision on whether to get the vaccine that was one of Trump’s major achievements. It would be best if they made that decision after hearing “experts” with differing opinions debate it. I understand why the elderly, who are obese, have COPD, have diabetes, have asthma, or have hypertension get the vaccine. Most of the COVID-19 admissions to our local hospital are people who have not been vaccinated.… Read more »

I agree people should do their own research and that they should be allowed to make their own decision.

I agree the media (including Fox News) lies.

Regarding sheep being led to slaughter, if the vaccine is a time-delayed poison and Ammoland posters know that, then surely Trump must know that as well. Trump still has the ability to make statements. What kind of a monster would not make a statement if he knows Americans are being slaughtered and has so much influence?

Again, I do not believe the vaccine is a time-delayed poison engineered to kill millions of Americans.

I think you need to do more research about the Jab and look at it objectively and not politically. Trump did tick me off because of this vaccine. However over half of his constituents have taken the jab so it’s a political decision on his part because he is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t so it must be left up to the individual to make up their own minds without being forced to do so.

If you know it’s a diabolical engineered protein designed to alter people’s DNA, then Trump knows it’s a diabolical engineered protein designed to alter people’s DNA.

No. I’ve never voted for a Democrat in my life. I voted for Trump twice.

Why don’t you make an argument?

Why do so many ignore things they can’t reconcile:

“Rich people are bad.”
“Trump is good.”

“People who never ‘served’ are cowards and shouldn’t be allowed to vote”
“Trump is brave and will MAGA.”

“Gun control is bad.”
“Trump never did one thing that wasn’t good for America.”

“The vaccine is bad.”
“Trump is good and would never do anything to harm us. He puts America first. He’s not like all those other poiticians.”

Just saying: “somebody said” is not much when one doesn’t even know where a certain person is located. For example, my friends in my local hospital say the exact opposite. My sister, an RN in Washington State, also says well over half of the covid admissions are fully vaccinated people.
All the hospital in Israel, home the world’s most vaccinated population, also list over half of the cases as vaccinated. So your local source certainly appears to be just incorrect.
OFC, having no idea where you live, I don’t dispute your words. Only their accuracy.

If you do a search for:

“percent of people admitted with covid-19 who are unvaccinated”

It shows a lot of sources that are consistent with what we are experiencing in the local hospital.

I don’t trust many of the national sources for data related to COVID-19, but I do trust my sources at the local hospital. Most of COVID-19 admissions are people who have not been vaccinated.

Then let’s try this: Have you an actual number for that claim of; “A small percentage of the people being admitted for COVID-19 have been vaccinated.”?
How small is small? Less than 1%? Over 10%? If you know it is a small number, then you must know what the number IS, yes? Isn’t that the most basic of logic?

I just tried your search and no actual stats come up. Only fictional, based largely upon computer models, “studies” being pushed by the media.
HOWEVER, if I reword it slightly to: “percent of people admitted with covid-19 who are vaccinated”
then I DO get some statistics, like this one from the UK:

I certainly won’t defend government employees when it comes to telling the truth, but I saw numerous citations regarding most COVID-19 hospital admissions being people who are not vaccinated. Here’s one (if the source is not Fox News, people will start having a tantrum):

https://www.foxnews.com/health/covid-19-hospitalizations-nonvaccinated

I gave you information I received about the hospital local to me. You stated:

“Because almost everywhere, it is the opposite of that.”

Then you referenced a news article from the UK.

How did you conclude that “almost everywhere, it is the opposite of that?”

Well, the president of Ghana has a good point. https://youtu.be/Xx582FU6ItQ?t=60 “despite not having the access to vaccines like in the developed world, Africa seems to have escaped the worst of the covid death rates.” The stats, when examined, bear this out.

I also take note of the censorship and downvotes that always come with words like mine above. I also wonder why that might be. Why is any suggestion that perhaps the profit motive is tainting the mass media’s vaccine studies ‘information non grata’?
Could it be possible (if one is aware of it) that the Phama industry owning large portions of the mass media has a little something to do with that?

What’s my line is not your game. The people I spoke with at the hospital I met through mutual acquaintances. They are all hard-core, freedom-loving people who chose not to get the vaccine themselves because they are not in high-risk groups, just like me.
