The Democrats: The party of five infamous ‘S’s’ adds a ‘T’ for treason

It is always my intent to use this site to discuss, criticize, and attack both Republicans and Democrats when they take any action that undermines the welfare of Americans, decreases the strength and security of the United States, or exposes the loyalty of U.S. officials and citizens to the interests of a foreign nation over those of the United States.

Every once in a while, however, an action by current Democratic officials is so in keeping with the party’s long history of racist, anti-human, and anti-American activities, that it takes your breath away. In the past, I have described the history of the Democratic Party as a continuing disgrace and deepening stain on American history; I have said that the Democratic Party should be seen as the party of the five “S’s”: Slavery, Secession (and civil war), Segregation, Socialism, and Slaughter (50 million aborted Americans … and counting).

Now we can add a “T” to those five “S’s” on the list of stellar “accomplishments” the Democratic Party has achieved over its long history. The “T” moves its record of disgrace beyond the realm of domestic affairs and back into the realm of Treason. I say “back into the realm of treason” because no one familiar with U.S. history will be surprised at the reinvigorated thirst to commit treason now being displayed by dozens Democrats.

Jefferson and his acolytes, for example, worked closely and covertly with the agents of France’s revolutionary regime to try to destroy President Washington’s neutrality policy and to foment public support for America joining France in its war against Britain. It is worth noting that Jefferson was serving as Washington’s Secretary of State at the time. And the list of politicians who formed the Confederate States of America in 1861, as well as the list of generals who led the Confederate armies in the attempt to destroy the Union and keep Blacks in slavery forever, were Democrats nearly to a man.

Now we have the boldest, most brazen example of the Democratic Party’s disloyalty since it bestowed secession and civil war on the American people 150 years ago. Thirty-nine Democrats in the federal legislature have signed a letter requesting a pardon for the convicted U.S.-citizen traitor and Israeli spy — Jonathan Pollard. Among the congressional champions of Pollard (listed below) are many of the same individuals who have assisted Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu in publicly and repeatedly humiliating Obama and Biden; who pushed for a U.S. war against Iraq on Israel’s behalf; and who are now working with other U.S. citizen Israel-Firsters to support Netanyahu’s call for a U.S.-led war against Iran. (NB: Let me hasten to say that it is clear that this strain of disloyal, Israel-First sentiment runs just as strongly in the Republican Party, though the Republicans’ disloyalty seems limited to Israel and Saudi Arabia, and, in historical terms, the party certainly is the more loyal of the two. As shown by media coverage of the current batch of Wikileaks, abetting the Saudis’ funding for the Islamists who are killing our soldiers and Marines has long been a tradition for both Republicans and Democrats.)

Having just watched the Congress’s Ethics Committee publicly chastise the apparently illicit financial activities of Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), it seems entirely appropriate that said Committee begin an investigation of these thirty-nine dastardly legislators. These are men and women who believe a convicted traitor to the United States should be pardoned and released so he can relocate to Israel where he will be greeted with wild enthusiasm by the anti-American government and people of that country, both of which regard Pollard as a courageous hero for grievously damaging U.S. national security. In the long run, these 39 legislators — given their contempt for their oath of office — are far more ethically challenged and threatening to U.S. security than the greedy Mr. Rangel.

One word of caution is in order for the Ethics Committee. Many of the 39 pro-Pollard Democratic legislators may hold Israeli as well as U.S. passports. It may be wise for the Committee to seize both from the pro-Pollard 39 so they cannot flee to their country of first loyalty to avoid the public censure they absolutely merit.
