PETITION: We The People To File Charges Against 47 U.S. Senators for Treason

Yesterday forty-seven United States Senators committed treason when they decided to violate the Logan Act, a 1799 law which forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments

treason republicans

The debate over a possible nuclear deal with Iran has reached a new level in Washington, after a group of Republican senators signed an open letter to Tehran warning that any potential deal with President Obama could be scrapped.

For the first time in American diplomatic history, one political party is devising its own foreign policy with its own entreaties to foreign governments.

Not content with having Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu address Congress and the American people and tell them the President’s approach to Iran is wrong, Republican senators yesterday sent an “open letter” to Iran’s leaders advising them that President Obama doesn’t have the constitutional authority to reach a meaningful understanding with them.

The letter warned Tehran that any nuclear deal needs congressional approval in order to last beyond Obama’s term and that without that step Iran will be left a “mere executive agreement” between Obama and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Republicans are not only making common cause with hardliners in Iran, they’re also undermining our President’s capacity to deal with foreign governments and compromising his authority as Commander-in-Chief. In so doing, they’re jeopardizing the safety and security of the United States.

“In my forty-five years of political involvement, I don’t remember any act by a major party that comes as close as the Republicans’ recent actions to what might be called treason” says Robert Reich, Former Member of President Clinton Cabinet and Professor at UC Berkeley.

THE LETTER

There’s a charming naiveté to the open letter [PDF] by 47 Republican senators that condescendingly seeks to explain features of the U.S. constitutional system to Iran’s leaders that they otherwise “may not fully understand.”

The missive warns that, with respect to “your nuclear negotiations with our government … any agreement regarding your nuclear-weapons program that is not approved by the Congress” could be revoked by the next president “with the stroke of a pen and future Congresses could modify the terms of the agreement at any time.”


WE THE PEOPLE PETITION and STATEMENT

We petition the Obama Administration to:

File charges against the 47 U.S. Senators in violation of The Logan Act in attempting to undermine a nuclear agreement.

On March 9th, 2015, forty-seven United States Senators committed a treasonous offense when they decided to violate the Logan Act, a 1799 law which forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments. Violation of the Logan Act is a felony, punishable under federal law with imprisonment of up to three years.

At a time when the United States government is attempting to reach a potential nuclear agreement with the Iranian government, 47 Senators saw fit to instead issue a condescending letter to the Iranian government stating that any agreement brokered by our President would not be upheld once the president leaves office.

This is a clear violation of federal law. In attempting to undermine our own nation, these 47 senators have committed treason.

    The petition has over 315,000 signatures as of 18 Mar 15.
    How about a follow-up article on that status so that VT can bump it back in a more prominent web-site position?

    I’d like to see the signatures hit 500,000 before 8 Apr 15, just so that these politician thugs understand that “We the People” are disgusted with them. Turn the heat up a little.

    As much as I revile that CIA implanted stooge I signed it. Cutting a piece of string and adding it to the top to make it longer doesn’t do anything but tell the string I will take a knife to your ass if I need to in the future. I hate both sides of the isle but this is over the top on Israeli chutzpa.

    47 cannibals probably cashed $$$47+ millions for sending that letter.

    If they mailed it with U.S. Mail then they should also land in prison for 20 years for violation of:

    “18 U.S. Code § 876 – Mailing threatening communications”

    Put above line in Google to see the law.
    But if they didn’t send it with U.S. Mail probably the above don’t apply!!!

    Not that I, or my opinion matter, but don’t expect me to get behind this president for anything or anybody. I cannot a traitor to our nation while we go after others who are treasonous. Only the wording is different. He thought so little of us he had to lie to us to get his boondoggle healthcare program passed. What kind of a man does this? Go after senators and NOT him? Give us all a break!!

       If you are worried about ISRALE, don’t be because it has NUKES since the 80’s, (35-years ago), by now it should have about 300 NUKES.

      ProtectUSA1st: I more than likely don’t understand I guess, but how can we get so lathered up about what they did and do nothing to this president for his deceit, betrayal, and his incessant lying? I suppose, after the past 27 years of traitors running this nation, I have simply had it with hypocrisy, lying, and empty words. Bush/Clinton/Bush, and now Oblunder letting this nation decay and attacking everything we ever stood for. Ancestors died in wars sacrificing everything to fight for it, enlisting when they were underage then never seeing their family again. I suppose I don’t understand USA1st. Thanks, I never get feedback from others or responses from authors or readers so thanks a to. I run on gut instincts and common sense, so I guess I just don’t get it.

    Most DC politicians Dems and Repubs do not represent us. Do not fall for their divide and conquer schemes . They are all on the same team. This is just drama to distract us like the brainwash tube so we don’t see them picking our pockets or writing laws in favor of forced vaccination , GMO monsanto and the like.. Most of them are owned by the military, pharma, agriculture, financial industrial complexes.
    The best thing we can do is quit our jobs and stop paying taxes .Boycott all the Zionist owned companies who control them. Grow a organic victory garden and trade and barter with your neighbor. Spread the word.
    Whats in your wallet ? A Monsanto , Zio Israel , big treasonous govermentKiller . Thats how we win.

    When Nancy Pelosi visited Syria she was reaching out to the legitimate govt. of Syria that has been targeted by Israel-First neocons ( the types most responsible for the 9-11 false flag ). That’s 180 degrees different than the Republicans Israeli butt-kissing and war mongering.

  8. Charlotte NC Bill  March 11, 2015 at 6:23 pm

    Yeah, they were just ” giving the Iranians a civics lesson..” ( While undermining the President’s ability to make a treaty..) Incredible, they’re a disgrace.

  9. Jack Heart  March 11, 2015 at 2:49 pm

    Signed, but lets skip the arrests and trials. These are mad dogs foaming at the mouth in the streetand there is a time honored way of dealing with that…

    Above thumbs up shot was probably after his last visit to the Satanic Bohemian Grove where he graduated for this job after murder cannibalizing a young child. My related comment in Kevin Barrett’s page called:
    “Does Sen. Menendez bust involve drugs & child sex slaves?”

    Q: do we need a new petition to force these scums take a cannibal Prion Disease test???

  11. captain obvious  March 11, 2015 at 9:32 am

    some darn encryption error not letting me go to the page to sign it, but yeah..
    those DORKS far over-reached with the letter saying bungholio-bama’s word or deal will be worthless, is a bigtime felony! the “supreme court judges” unwilling to prosecute it is criminal dereliction of duty with intent to aid criminals, so lock them up too!

    I dont care for lying “see I got Bin Laden” Barry Soteoro (aka BS!) one bit, I’d like to see a REAL birth certificate too of course.. but if he’s any kind of ACTing president let one of his acts be bringing down a whole gaggle of corrupt POS’s, whether he get’s “Kennedy’d” or not!

    • captain obvious  March 11, 2015 at 9:40 am

      the other potential option is locally elected real Sherriffs arresting them when they are in their home state and county. any resisting just shoot them and whatever security goons are helping them to resist (who are likely packing lethal force anyway).

      IRAN aint done anything to the USA, izrahell HAS, and probably TOLD these FALSE representatives to sign this letter or else. a little waterboarding might find out, being these same critters likely said it isnt torture at all…

    • LC  March 12, 2015 at 8:38 am

      How about passing a “WATERBOARD CHAMBER BILL” to fund such chambers @ security checkpoints of Congress & Senate just for extracting some decent info from these spies for first time???

      Bet-U they’ll throw up tons of victims’ blood barf. But that’s water well spent to wash off their guilt!!!

  12. Danshee  March 10, 2015 at 7:53 pm

    Well those NICE congressmen then in fact tell that any agreement whatsoever is not worth the ink regarding the entity USA. It would therefore be more beneficial for Iran to make a deal with some large corporations (for instance the largest defence contractors), large enough to ensure honoring of it. In fact it would allow warranty add-ons etc. The other solution would be direct voting by the people of the USA. Of course this political dissolution is not mere coincidence, it is planned and wanted by entities far removed from any beneficial feelings towards the american people. Whom ? Well who spake and demanded, on whom’s name in which country ?

  13. Charlotte NC Bill  March 10, 2015 at 7:23 pm

    Clint Walker up in FB probably still thinks the muslims did 9-11, Talmudia’s an ally, Putin’s the aggressor in Ukraine, Iran must be bombed and the invasion of Iraq was a good idea…A neocon’s definition of moronic is any patriot that doesn’t share their Talmudia first mindset.

    • Allesandro  March 10, 2015 at 8:25 pm

      As the Jews, Israeli’s, Neocons, KMafia, have ascended in power, conditions for everyone else has DESCENDED, deteriorated in every way imaginable.

      No Coincidences.
