The President of the United States stood nearly arm-in-arm on the steps of the White House with President Felipe Calderon of Mexico. Calderon arrogantly criticized the courage of the State of Arizona for passing a law, which mirrors federal law designed to protect Arizona citizens from falling prey to Mexicans or anyone else that crosses the border into the United States illegally. Obama, looking on as Calderon made his inflammatory comments, took no issue with Calderon, in fact Obama made statements critical of Arizona leadership and it's government.
Further, the indescribable spectacle on May 20, 2010 when Mexican President Calderon addressed the Congress of the United States, attacking the State and government of Arizona using false, misleading, inciting, dangerous lies was bad enough. But, when what appeared to be a majority of the sitting US Congress, to include congressional leadership, rose and applauded Calderon's egregious attacks on one of our States, Arizona, it reflected one of the most despicable displays of anti-America, treasonous action by a body of Congress ever witnessed.
The United States Constitution, specifically Article IV, Section 4 in it's entirely states: "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence." The United States government has willfully failed to uphold the United States Constitution.
Where is US Government priority regarding responsibility and obligation under the US Constitution for national security and sovereignty? Arizona and other border States have said in no uncertain terms, our people are dying, illegal chaos is evident and the federal government fiddles with amnesty...Arizona has been abandoned by the federal government and says "we'll take care of own"...but just stay out of our way. What does Washington do? They find fault to cover their own incompetence, negligence, and obstinate unwillingness to ensure national security and sovereignty.
Several American Administrations have failed to secure the United States southern border after repeated pleas from border States. However, no previous Administration has allowed a foreign leader to stand on the steps of the White House and in the well of the United States Capitol, mockingly condemn a U. S. State in a false, deceitful, willful, provocative manner, while the President of the United States looks on approvingly; and a majority of Congress gives a standing ovation to a foreign leader, who is without credibility as he bashes Americans and our rule of law principles. What is President Calderon's point of objection? Arizona is following federal law in protecting it's citizens from primarily Calderon's illegal and criminal elements invading America...
When a United States President and a United States Congress, having taken an oath "...to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic...", purposefully and openly defies, and falsely condemns, a member of the Union, Arizona, while supporting and applauding a haughty, isolent, pin-head of a foreign leader, there can be no other conclusion than, TREASON AGAINST THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
Barack Obama, every member of Congress demonstrating against Arizona and America by supporting President Calderon of Mexico have stated, in spirit, the despicable words, which I can't repeat, of Obama's previous spiritual mentor, Rev Jeremiah Wright...
Obama should be prosecuted for treason and every member of Congress that profaned their oaths must, at a minimum be removed from office on November 2, 2010.
