Is Lois Lerner Guilty of Treason?

Lois Lerner

Let’s be clear about what’s at stake here.

In America the government is supposed to belong to the people, not those who are elected or appointed to operate it.

Federal officials take an oath to uphold the Constitution, as specified in 5 U.S. Code § 3331:

“I, (employee name) do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

In the case of the targeting of conservative organizations Lois Lerner was not some innocent civic minded American walking down the street minding her own business that was ambushed by an oppressive government.

She WAS the oppressive government. 

But in the case of Lerner’s just revealed targeting of Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa she wasn’t just trying to use the power of her office to advance a political agenda – arguably abusive, but not always illegal – she was trying to undermine a constitutional officer of the United States government and for all intents and purposes overthrow the results of the election that sent Grassley to the United States Senate.

Other than actually taking up arms against the United States it is hard to think of a clearer example of an attack on the Constitution that what Lois Lerner did during her time at the IRS, and in one respect her conduct was far worse than taking up arms against the Constitution she was sworn to “support and defend” because she was undermining from within the very government created by the Constitution.

The conduct of Lerner, a middling bureaucrat at an agency with almost unlimited power, is the most egregious example yet revealed of the culture of lawlessness that has come to pervade the United States government since Barack Obama came to power.

Lois Lerner didn’t just wake up one morning, gather-up her courage and decide to overthrow the Constitution of the United States, this lawlessness starts at the very top of the government and it has spread down to bureaucrats like Lerner.

The Constitution defines treason this way: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.”

But if the foundation of the United States is the Constitution, not an individual like a king, then does “levying war” against the United States consist only in taking up arms to overthrow the government, or does using the power of the government itself to undermine the Constitution constitute adhering to the enemies of the United States and is thus treason according to the Constitution?

And if it is revealed that Lois Lerner was directed by the Obama White House staff to target Senator Grassley and conservative organizations that were perceived as political enemies and otherwise undermine the Constitution of the United States then aren’t those officials equally guilty of what amounts to treason?

What was going on at the agency during Lois Lerner’s tenure there cannot be explained away as one rogue employee. With the revelation that Senator Grassley was targeted for an attack by the IRS, there's no doubt that some in the Obama administration are at war with the Constitution.

If Lerner, and those who directed her, are allowed to get away with this attack on the very foundation of our government, then that means the federal bureaucracy has become a law unto itself completely untethered to the Constitution and unrestrained in their power. If that’s not levying war against the Constitution of the United States, what is it?

Is "Lawless" Lerner Guilty of Treason"

You bet she is.

Ted Cruz' bill to restore 1st Amendment rights to the electorate

Lois Lerner worked at the Federal Election Commission prior to the IRS and concerns about our 1st Amendment rights should begin with that agency. After Watergate, to protect citizens from the appearance of corruption. the Federal Campaign Act created regulated and unregulated participation in the political process. Citizens and groups were regulated and main stream media corporations were unregulated creating a State approved press.

But the 1st Amendment does not grant freedom of speech, press, assembly and petition according to occupation. Equal protection of the law demands that freedom to participate in politics be restored to all. A newspaper is an example of freedom of the press and not its definition.

It would be poetic and fitting if Obama's IRSGATE restored freedoms to the electorate stolen from them by Nixon's Watergate.And Senator Ted Cruz has written a bill to do just that:

Call your Senators and demand they co-sponsor and vote for Ted Cruz’ “Free All Speech Act of 2014”:

S.2416 - Free All Speech Act of 2014

https://beta.congress.gov/113/bills/s2416/BILLS-113s2416is.xml

113th CONGRESS
2d Session

S. 2416

To apply laws that restrict the political speech of American citizens to media corporations.

IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

June 3, 2014

Mr. Cruz introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation

A BILL

To apply laws that restrict the political speech of American citizens to media corporations.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. Short title.

This Act may be cited as the “Free All Speech Act of 2014”.

SEC. 2. Application of laws that restrict the political speech of American citizens to media corporations.

(a) In general.—Any law that restricts the political speech of American citizens shall apply with equal force to media corporations, such as the New York Times, the American Broadcasting Company (ABC), the National Broadcasting Company (NBC), and the CBS Television Network.

(b) No application to American citizens if application to media corporations found unconstitutional.—To the extent that the application of a law to a media corporation under subsection (a) is found unconstitutional, such law shall have no force or effect with respect to American citizens.

They're all guilty!

Lerner was following orders from the commie in chief. His orders were treasonous, so he and all who follow his orders are traitors.

And since congress long ago abdicated its duty to oversee the bureaus, it is guilty of treason by way of negligence at the least, more likely by voluntarily giving the dictator in chief more power than the constitution allows.

And since Holder reports only to the prez, we can't expect him to prosecute anyone.

We're in a helluva mess and those in DC will never take the right and legal course so long as their bread is being buttered by the corruption that they have created and thrive on. And to think we even allow them to vote themselves pay raises as more of us get laid off.

LOIS LERNER....SS

This woman Lerner is a elite from head to toe, she is everything to be despised by the tax payers, her position is similar to Heydrich the former head of the nazi SS under Hitler and she now has been exposed as one who will fully employ the might of the state by use of the IRS and ask for more tools by employing the FBI to destroy anyone she suspects of opposing the present regime run by the WH Faker his staff of thuggs. Nice to know those who sit about making crap sandwiches to feed the public will never consume their own body waste, seems like everyday is a new public BJ in order to CYA another bungle or reason as to why the law was ignored and the Constitution spit on or perhaps another American tradition or belief suddenly crushed as if it displeased his majesty and his court. One must step lightly amongst the elite and wipe their nose and backside with care......these folks are not Americans.

Lerner

Treason? Surely serious federal laws have been broken. If she were convicted on those all additional categories of wrongdoing would become moot in my humble opinion. I don't care what you call it, this woman must be prosecuted and soon.

Lerner; guilty.

She is guilty, and she knows it.
