Not the First Time: Obama’s Endorsement of Treason

Written by Andrew Linn on June 9, 2014

Bowe Bergdahl is an Army Sergeant who abandoned his post and joined the Taliban. Later, he would be exchanged for five Taliban members. While Obama and his cronies attempt to hail the exchange as a prisoner-of-war swap, and that Bergdahl was a hero, the truth of the matter is Bergdahl deserted the United States Army. He would then join the Taliban. Not only is this desertion, but it is also treason.

According to the United States Constitution (Article III, Section 3 to be exact): “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

So, there you have the Constitution’s definition of treason (which by the way, is the only crime defined in the Constitution). Bergdahl should be tried for this crime, but apparently someone in the United States Government is either sympathetic to him or actually believes he was a prisoner-of-war. But as I mentioned above, he is a deserter and traitor.

Of course, this is not the Obama Administration’s first time to endorse treason. One particular traitor is the current Secretary of State John Kerry. As some of you might be aware, Kerry served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War. He tried to create a name for himself, making it sound like he was a big-time hero, (e.g. charging enemy positions, putting in for medals he did not earn). He would always be writing in his journal when off-duty (obviously embellishing a bunch of war stories to make himself look good) and even went so far as to reenact and film one such incident.

During the 1970s, Kerry (while serving in the Naval Reserve) joined Vietnam Veterans Against the War, and, along with his fellow anti-war activists (some of whom were pretending to be Vietnam Veterans), began making up a bunch of stories about Americans’ committing war crimes in Vietnam, American military personnel’s being drug addicts, being stationed in Cambodia (in an attempt to undermine the Nixon Administration despite the fact that Nixon had not yet taken office when Kerry’s Cambodian venture allegedly took place), etc. Although Kerry and his fellow activists would tell (or I should say sell) these stories to Congress, none of them would cooperate when the Department of Defense attempted to investigate. Thus, Kerry and his fellow activists not only gave the anti-war movement a boost, but they also created a series of myths and stereotypes regarding the Vietnam War, which would have an impact on those who had served (e.g. military personnel being spat on when returning home).

Kerry did not stop there. While testifying at a Senate hearing in 1971, he admitted to traveling to Paris and meeting with North Vietnamese officials and representatives of the Communist “provisional government” of South Vietnam to negotiate an American withdrawal from the war. Since he was a naval reservist at the time, he could have been court-martialed for having unauthorized contact with the enemy (under the Military Code of Justice) and subject to the death penalty. But somehow he managed to evade justice — supposedly he was pardoned by Jimmy Carter in 1977.

Now Kerry is claiming that the possibility of the Taliban prisoners who were exchanged for Bergdahl might resume killing Americans is “baloney”. Thus, Kerry is picking up where he left off during the Vietnam War — putting American lives at risk in order to advance his own agenda (something which Obama also engages in).

There is no indication of how many more treasonous officials are in the Obama Administration, or treasonous acts for that matter. But Obama does not care. He is only interested in changing America, no matter what laws are broken or how many lives are put at risk.
