Kudos to this author for bringing this to our attention. I couldn’t agree more when he says,
“The hypocrisy of the government knows no bounds. I am sorry, but unless you think the DHS is preparing for an invasion by Al Qaeda, it is quite clear these weapons are being bought for future use against the citizenry of the United States. The writing on the wall couldn’t be clearer.”

Today our nation is facing perhaps the most critical situation it has faced since 1776 when our nation declared our Independence! Our very Constitution is being attacked by a man who has taken an oath of office to, “…preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States”, and also by those who have taken an oath to “support and defend” that same Constitution. Yet, some elected representatives find it in their best interest to refuse to honor their Oath of Office. We, the people, have sent these senators and representatives to their office with the idea that they would be trusted with our Constitution. But instead, they betray the very principles of their office. Some lay claim that this is an act of treason. With this in mind, let us look at just what treason is defined as.
Treason is defined by Webster’s online as:
1. the betrayal of trust;
2. the offense of attempting by overt acts to overthrow the government of the state to which the offender owes allegiance or to kill or personally injure the sovereign or his family.
The 1828 Webster’s Dictionary, which many would use to define words pertaining to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers defines Treason as:
The highest crime of a civil nature of which a man can be guilty. Its signification is different in different countries. In general, it is the offense of attempting to overthrow the government of the state to which the offender owes allegiance, or of betraying the state into the hands of a foreign power. In monarchies, the killing of the king, or an attempt to take his life, is treason. In England, to imagine or compass the death of the king, or of the prince, or of the queen consort, or of the heir apparent of the crown, is high treason; as are many other offenses created by statute.
