The treasonous governor

The evidence is clear. Governor Bevin of Kentucky is, in essence, calling for an uprising against the democratically elected government the United States. This nation can no longer tolerate such talk. An example must be made. If Bevin continues to call for rebellion after the election, he should be arrested and tried for treason. Moreover, the government should seek the death penalty.

That will discipline these right-wing secessionist maniacs.

The Constitution is clear:
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
18 U.S. Code ยง 2381 is quite clear:
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.
I see nothing in these definitions specifying a foreign enemy. We can cite precedent: William Bruce Mumford was hanged for treason after he tore down a United States flag during the Civil War, a far lesser offense (in my view) than that committed by Governor Bevin. Two men were convicted of treason during the Whiskey Rebellion of 1791; George Washington commuted their death sentence.

Today, we are beset by a bold band of internal enemies -- an army of right-wing fiends who seek nothing less than an end to democracy. Until they are taught a harsh lesson, they will continue to talk treason every time the people elect someone they don't like. Right-wingers must be made to understand that if they ignore the laws quoted above, they will pay the ultimate price.

These sanctimonious conspiracy-crazed traitors love to speak grandly of the need to water the tree of liberty with blood. Very well. As much as I despise violence (even when legally justified), and despite my belief that justice should be tempered by mercy, the right seems intent on forcing the issue.
Democrats don't seem to use the law to create fairness even when the opportunity exists. Judicial Watch is a completely partisan Republican group that focuses on harassing the Clintons and by selling harassment memorabilia of the Clintons.

Why should anyone be allowed to call themselves "Judicial" if they are biased or partisan? The entire point of the word Judicial is the study of law, which is supposed to be fair and non-prejudicial.

Why haven't the Democrats sued Judicial Watch into changing their name into something like Partisan Judicial Watch. Get an immediate injunction against the name and let the judge rule.

There is precedent in these types of cases. In the early 90's KABC-AM radio vs KFI-AM radio. KABC claimed that the term Talk Radio was theirs, KFI countered that the word TAlK had to be protected for free speech sake. The judge cleverly decided that KFI-AM could use Talk Radio as long as they described the type of talk radio. KFI came up with "More Stimulating Talk Radio".

The Dems could neutralize Judicial Watch by having a judge enjoin Judicial Watch to change their name to something like "Partisan Judicial Watch", since that is in fact what Judicial Watch, is.
Everyone I know (very few in fact) who advocates "watering the tree" wants to water it with other people's blood, including the loony leftists who think they burn down the country and it will rise Phoenix like into a new liberal paradise, a.k.a. the US of Sweden. The right is even more notorious for this line of thinking, except their paradise is some warped version of white-bread America from the 1950s, a.k.a. the US of Mayberry, a benign land where everyone sits on their front stoops or porches and chats about how great their lives are. None of those visions are even remotely possible.
Traitors like the governor ought to be arrested for sure. A few trials, convictions not even necessary, and these idiots would start disappearing like the Bundy Bunch in a dildo factory. I don't expect anything like that will happen with Obama running the show; he's just too timid. President Clinton might not be so kindly predisposed after she gives the media/press a long overdue overhaul.
Where's Harry Truman when we really need him?
I would defend this mentally imbalanced governor's right to free speech, as many speeches by protesters could be judged as treason.
However, I firmly believe Governor Bevin has a narcissistic personality disorder.
It is too bad and SAD that my state of Kentucky doesn't have a recall method of elected officials.
Besides, we have such a corrupt legislature with divided party loyalties, Senate - Republican majority and House - Democratic majority.
Both parties are so corrupt, neither may support recall as they could be next.

Let's start with the Deadbeat. - http://bit.ly/2ccDqkZ
