Former FBI: Treason, Title 18 Section 2381, US Code… And Obama …You Be The Judge!

Barack Obama

THE RIGHT SIDE

By J GARY DILAURA

To be exact, here’s the statute and the elements; “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States levies war against them or “adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort” within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States”.

Element 1; “whoever owing allegiance to the United States”…there should be no doubt that Barack Obama, as President as well as Senator ,owed allegiance to the United States having taken no less than 3 oaths of office swearing to that fact. Element 1 is something many of us witnessed ourselves!

Element 2; “adheres to their enemies giving them aid and comfort”… two things are necessary here; identifying the “enemy “ and what exactly is “aid and comfort”.

Unless someone is deaf, dumb and lives in a vacuum, there should be no doubt in their minds that Iran’s Presidents ( Tommy “Ineedajob”,) as well as every Ayatollah, starting with the Jimmy Carter created, Ayatollah Khomeini, ( April 1979) , have publicly stated that they will destroy America. Starting with the Jimmy Carter administration in 1979,6 months after Carter put the Ayatollah in charge, Iran began clearly demonstrating that they are enemies of the United States by taking Americans hostage  by force, violence and intimidation, from our embassy and holding them hostage, until a “credible threat”, in the form of  President Ronald Reagan, a Republican, was sworn in. That resulted in an “immediate” release of the hostages.

That began a clear and present danger of Iranian led attacks against the US;

1979 hostages, 444 days by Iran –President Carter

!983 Beirut ,April and Oct, US embassy and Marine barracks bombed and over 300 Americans killed by bombings –President Reagan

USS Cole 16 sailors killed- President Clinton

2008 -2016 numerous attacks against US soldiers by IED, suicide bombs and ambush attacks financed by, supplied by and often supported by Iranian led terrorists-President Obama

2016 10 US sailors taken hostage US Ship boarded and taken –President Obama

There are so many additional acts against the US by Iran, according to Official Government sources,  that there simply isn’t enough space to list and explain them all. All by a true enemy of the US, Iran!

During Obama’s 8 years in office there were several other  acts of Treason, in my opinion, such as providing the Muslim Brotherhood, state of the art US Fighters and other munitions; supplying rebels in the  Benghazi Embassy attack, munitions and complicity in aiding Americans under fire in the Benghazi attack but I am concentrating on Iran in this column. It’s an easy case to make!

Now what constitutes “aid and comfort” …how about $170,000,000,000? That is $170 billion in “cash”!  Why cash, I ask, why not a money order from the Post Office or a Bank Check or even a personal check? Why 40 foot long containers of cash in currency from different countries?

Now think about that for a minute…what would a reasonable person believe, what the reason is for Obama using hard, cold cash instead of the normal form of money transfer. Why would he “give” an established enemy of the US and our own government identified, biggest sponsor of terrorism, in the world, $170 Billion in cash?

To make sure it couldn’t be stopped by Constitutional checks and balances, like the Congress? If that’s the case, did Obama try to get that done through proper channels and was turned down? Answer…yes, sort of! He lied to Congress , to try to get it done.

If Donald Trump gave Putin $170 billion in cash, what would Schumer and the rest of the left have to say?

Name one terror attack on the US by Russia…name one US hostage taken by Russia…name one US ship attacked by Russia…name one US embassy attacked by Russia…hmmm!

If Russia is an enemy of ours and has never taken aggressive action against us…what does that make Iran? Seems to me that makes Iran some sort of Super, Colossal, Gigantic, Hideous enemy!

I certainly do not want ANY Americans hurt by Iran or any other peoples but I would sure like to see Iran threaten this President or try to grab a US ship and see what happens!

You be the Judge…Obama…Guilty or not Guilty? The penalty is death!

  • First off you are distorting many facts. Carter did not put the Ayatollah in power. It was a revolution against the shah of Iran that we installed over their democratically elected leader. Second, the hostages released when Reagan came in as a direct result of illegally trading arms for hostages. Remember Iran contra… A fall guy named Ollie North. Those same weapons Reagan traded for hostages were later used by the forces hostile to the USA. Give up on your revisionist history bashing trip to try and discredit Obama. It’s really transparent, blatantly obvious, and frankly sad.

  • You certainly have made a solid argument for the Justice Department to consider. Too bad we have in Sessions, a very weak AG that seems complicit with the Alt-left liberals.

  • John, Thank you for reading my column and commenting. Unfortunately you are wrong on every point. I’ll explain; I wrote this quite a while ago, “Before Carter, Iran WAS run by a true ally to the US, the Shah of Iran. Jimmy Carter, in his ignorance, decided that the Ayatollah Khomeini is a humanitarian, who would treat his people with the same compassion Jimmy had for human rights. Carter, apparently, never read the Koran! Jimmy’s staff of Viet Nam Anti war, human rights, morons convinced Carter that Khomeini would free the Iranian people from the tyranny of the Shah and make Iran a Democratic Country. The Ayatollah had been in exile in Iraq because , in part, of his radical Shari , Islamic beliefs. The Shah, as well as numerous world Muslim leaders, told Carter that he was crazy to think that the Ayatollah Khomeini would “free” the people of Iran. Carter was told by Muslim leaders that Khomeini would lead an Islamic Sharia revolution the minute he returned to Iran. Carter had NO idea what Islam is about, not any idea what Sharia law is nor how people, especially women, are treated under Islamic Sharia law! Yet he would only listen to people like his ambassador to the United Nations, Andrew Young, who said” Khomeini will eventually be hailed as a saint.” Carter’s Iranian ambassador, William Sullivan, said, “Khomeini is a Gandhi-like figure.” Carter adviser James Bill proclaimed on Feb. 12, 1979, Ayatollah Khomeini was not a mad mujahidin but a man of “impeccable integrity and honesty.”
    Could they be any more WRONG? How could anyone be that stupid? Blinded by HUMANITARIAN ideals, they ran our country into an economic depression lead by 22% interest rates , gave up the Panama Canal, scared the hell out of Russia when the Soviets invaded Afghanistan by boycotting the Olympics and gave rise to our current Terror Champ of the World, Iran!
    The Shah was the least of all other evils in the Muslim world of “killing anyone in the way of Islam”. But Carter and his tree hugging, human rights liberals hung their hats on a congressional amendment to the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, (amended in 1976), that made the president responsible for the determination of which countries were guilty of abusing the human rights of its citizens.
    Long story short, thanks to Carter, the Ayatollah Khomeini took over Iran in April 1979 and in November 1979 thanked Jimmy by urging Iranian college students and a band of Iranian terrorists, to take over the US embassy . Oh yea, I forgot, they also took and held 52 Americans hostage until President Ronald Regan, a Republican, was elected president . They released ALL 52 hostages within MINUTES of President Regan being sworn in ! I wonder why.”

    Carter then enacted the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1952 and BANNED ALL Iranian Muslims from entering the US, ordered all Iranian foreign students to register with the government and then deported 15,000 Iranian Muslim students!!!

    As far as the ” terrorists being released because of the Iran Contra arms for hostages deal”, Reagan was sworn in for his first term on Jan 20 , 1981, Iran Contra took place during Reagans 2nd ,that’s second term, some 6-7 years later! I don’t have to try to “discredit Obama”, he did a SUPERB job doing that himself every time he opened his mouth, set pen to paper and used his cell phone.

    Don’t be surprise if he stands trial for Treason…I’ll gladly pull the switch!
