This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

PC Strikes: Wrong On Czarbie

~Snooper~

In this day of political correctness, a cancer that has swept this nation, I submit that I will never succumb to such nonsense. I do not accuse Sister Toldjah of this but I do accuse others of submitting to the PC Nazis for political expediency. Such is the case of Nancy Pelosi's and now Czarbie's violations of the Logan Act. Just because some politicians have said that Czarbie didn't "try to" affect Foreign Policy means nothing to me.
Via Instapundit, I read a report by Jake Tapper which discusses how Bush administration officials - and other Republican congressmen - are saying that Barack Obama did not try to interfere with Bush’s policy towards Iraq in a meeting with Iraq leaders as originally reported … because those officials and congressmen were with him.
Gee. So, if a rapist didn't "mean to" and his friends were with him, than his violation is OK? Not hardly. Oh. That's right. "Don't tell me words don't matter!" "Just words? Just speeches?" Please.

I respect and admire Sister Toldjah and agree 99.9999999999% of the time but, in this case, I whole heartedly object.

No where in the United States Constitution is political correctness discussed or sanctioned.

In recent days, the conservative blogosphere has exploded into utter contempt and disgust over Czarbie and his foreign policy intrusions in Iraq. Is it constitutional for a sitting or former Senator to travel around discussing foreign policy with foreign leaders or trying to change foreign policy? Is it constitutional for a sitting or former House Member to travel around discussing foreign policy with foreign leaders or trying to change foreign policy? Is it constitutional for an American Citizen to travel around discussing foreign policy with foreign leaders or trying to change foreign policy? The answer is obviously, "NO".

Section VIII of the United States Constitution defines the duties of the Legislative Branch which, by the way, means the Senate and The House. Section IX of the United States Constitution defines the limitations of the Legislative Branch which, by the way, means the Senate and The House. Section II of the United States Constitution defines the power of the Presidency. The only one that can direct Foreign Policy is the president of the United States and the intent is the SITTING President. Not a former President or an Aspiring President, no matter their alleged standing in the world. Period.

This was all confirmed and solidified via the Logan Act of 1799. The Logan Act (18 U.S.C.A. § 953 [1948]) is a single federal statute making it a crime for a citizen to confer with foreign governments against the interests of the United States. Specifically, it prohibits citizens from negotiating with other nations on behalf of the United States without authorization. The text:
Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply himself, or his agent, to any foreign government, or the agents thereof, for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.
Crickets from our esteemed politicians. And now, The Smith Act:
The Alien Registration Act of 1940, usually called the Smith Act because the antisedition section was authored by Representative Howard W. Smith of Virginia, was adopted at 54 Statutes at Large 670-671 (1940). The Act has been amended several times and can now be found at 18 U.S. Code § 2385 (2000).

§ 2385. Advocating Overthrow of Government.

Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or

Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or

Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof--

Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.

If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.

As used in this section, the terms "organizes" and "organize", with respect to any society, group, or assembly of persons, include the recruiting of new members, the forming of new units, and the regrouping or expansion of existing clubs, classes, and other units of such society, group, or assembly of person.
More crickets.

Taking into consideration everything Czarbie has said about the Troops, their Mission, President Bush and his rhetoric which not only emboldens the enemy but enables and encourages the enemy to step up attacks against our Troops - much like his kind did during the Vietnam War (or Police Action) - in which claimed my brother's life in 1968, I wouldn't put it past Czarbie to shaft the Troops at every chance he could.

In previous posts entitled I'll Take "What Is Treason" For The Presidency Alex, The Obama Camp Confirms Treason and Logan Act Violations, Message From Melanie Morgan: Obama's Disgraceful Action and Obama - Nobama - Czarbama - Czarbie - Fraud and Treasonous Scum, I brought to your attention that which is Czarbie's treachery. I stand by those and spit in the face of PC.

Also taking into consideration Czarbie's associations with known enemies of the state and unrepentant domestic terrorists and his wet dream of a Civilain National Security Force, how can anyone possibly not believe Taheri's account which was confirmed by his own campaign?

Dan at Riehl World acknowledges, as I have, that Czarbie's treachery stems from his inexperience and his total and complete misunderstanding of our very Founding as a Nation.
[...] Obama was irresponsible, repulsive and un-American in his behavior. Yet, a media cowed by race and political correctness likely won't utter a harsh word about Oba-neophyte's terrible and dangerous indiscretions in Iraq. He wanted as many of our troops at risk for as long as possible hoping to ride the headlines chronicling American dead and wounded to the White House.

Really, does it get any more repulsive than that, particularly for a man who professes to become Commander in Chief, even though he lacks the experience to run a Wal-Mart?

Shameful and disgusting, there simply are not enough pejoratives to describe this self-indulgent, ignorant little man. [END]
Certainly Czarbie is unfit for command.

The issues I have with the post at Ace and others is as follows: some are saying that Hagel agrees with Czarbie's account. Hagel also said that Palin was unqualified. PC has struck once again. In the piece at Ace:
[...] As I noted in my original post, this wasn’t the first time Obama and the Iraqi Foreign Minister had differing opinions on a conversation. If it had happened the way the Post column claims you’d think someone else (not Chuck Hagel but either a committee or embassy staffer) would have come forward at some point to confirm it.

Absent some other form of confirmation, it’s looking like Obama didn’t cross any lines on his trip. Thank Heaven for small favors, I guess. [END]
I don't care what it looks like to the PC Nazis and I especially don't care what Hagel the RINO says about anything. What this is all about is that there are no honest men in DC anymore and the media frenzy that would ensue from anyone trying to enforce the Logan and Smith Acts would make the cowards wet their panties.

Perhaps it would be wise for those that doubt Czarbie's treachery to read Obama 101. It is a two-page essay and confirms to me, no matter the fluff I hear in the PC world, that Czarbie is a master at gab and is a Clear and Present Danger. He no honors and supports our Troops than I am a supporter of his Marxist garbage. I will believe an Iraqi Official in their government more than I would believe ANY RINO and certainly over Czarbie.
