Now, here is a good reason to charge Feinstein with treason.

GOP and Feinstein join to fulfill Obama's demand for renewed warrantless eavesdropping

To this day, many people identify mid-2008 as the time they realized what type of politician Barack Obama actually is. Six months before, when seeking the Democratic nomination, then-Sen. Obama unambiguously vowed that he would filibuster "any bill" that retroactively immunized the telecom industry for having participated in the illegal Bush NSA warrantless eavesdropping program.

But in July 2008, once he had secured the nomination, a bill came before the Senate that did exactly that - the FISA Amendments Act of 2008 - and Obama not only failed to filibuster as promised, but far worse, he voted against the filibuster brought by other Senators, and then voted in favor of enacting the bill itself. That blatant, unblinking violation of his own clear promise - actively supporting a bill he had sworn months earlier he would block from a vote - caused a serious rift even in the middle of an election year between Obama and his own supporters.

Critically, the FISA Amendments Act of 2008 did much more than shield lawbreaking telecoms from all forms of legal accountability. Jointly written by Dick Cheney and then-Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Jay Rockefeller, it also legalized vast new, sweeping and almost certainly unconstitutional forms of warrantless government eavesdropping.

Congress is a treasonous body for the most part.

So this is another good reason to accuse Feinstein of Treason.

Free includes debt-free!

accuse?

isn't the accusation stage over?
by the laws they passed so far,most are guilty
of treason,these are facts,documented and voted
in by them,they voted in their own treason
the admission is in the votes they cast,the votes
cast against the cosnt,all the laws they themselves voted in
were against the ones they all swore to protect,and a const,they
violated,they are not law makers
these people cannot create laws that go against us or the const
where is the confusion?

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

They get a chance to set an example!

Taken to the nearest busy intersection at noon and hung by the neck until dead and left to hang until dusk as a warning to any who would choose to violate their oath of office in the future.

Nor do they follow the law.

Nor do they follow the law. They either ignore the law, or try to change it as we saw with Obamacare. But they do pass laws that override pre-existing laws...and try to call them new, even though they're ancient.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

yes indeed

they are not above the laws they created
but rather are under them all
by their own votes(admission) they are guilty of high crimes against their sworn oath
every time they voted against the constitution,every time they went against the laws of this land,they committed treason
and all the while we pay them,the slave is not above the master

That's what happens when you

That's what happens when you let Charles Manson (911) get away with murder. They can do whatever they want to now, without consequence.

They are like, "Gods." The ultimate blasphemy is to deny the truth, for if the truth is denied, darkness will be brighter than light...in their own wicked minds, not mine.

They got away with it so many times, from the Reichstag fire to 911, but too many Americans still can't handle the truth as the movie said.

Denial and the devil walk hand in hand.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

i love the way you think

and thank you
i love to read truth
i also do on my end what i can do,going so far as burning my candles
on both ends,so much that sleep is a fading memory
yes, truth is that important to me
yes i also agree about the darkness comment.it is in their minds
but so far they have been successful at projecting and drawing
it from us,so they grow and we weaken
this does need to stop,at what cost?
remains to be seen

(Another) good reason,

(Another) good reason, yes...but GWB got away with the same crap and he was not tried for treason. The bark on that tree has been lubed with plenty of blood and war, and unfortunately lacks political bite.

Trying to disarm every free American is a better reason for treason.
