Years ago, here in the Columbus, Ohio area there was a radio personality who often went on a verbal tirade and at the end of it he always lamented: “Ain’t It ‘Bout Time Somebody Done Something?”
I have been thinking about him a lot lately, as it appears to be more likely everyday that no one is going to do anything about the machinations of the Deep State. As I hunt and peck on my computer today, we are 54 days away from the 2020 election, and not one member of the Deep State has been brought to justice.
Is it just me, or does anyone else think it is past time for some perp-walks? With all the talk about the investigations that were going on behind the scenes many Americans were excited about the prospect of some high-ranking, very recognizable dignitaries making some very public perp-walks. It is looking less likely every day. To this day, Benedict Arnold is famous because of his crimes. How can anyone ever have any confidence in our Federal institutions if no one heads to the gallows?
Literally…to the gallows. Some Deep State officials should forfeit their lives for the crap they have pulled over the past several years. The swamp is deep, and although the corruption did not all the sudden begin recently, the exposing of the corruption has never been more publicly visible.
You do remember the idea of pitchforks and torches, don’t you? The idea of vigilante justice that occurred when those whose job it was to keep things honest failed to do their jobs? The good ole boys in town would round up a citizen’s posse and go make sure some of the varmint’s in government were held accountable for their malfeasance in office. “We the People” often required an angry mob to re-establish justice.
Are we there yet, or are we just too dignified for that, today? What are we to do when the corruption in government is so deep that there is no longer any real justice? Currently, we have a legal system, but not a justice system. How long will we wait for corrupt government officials to prosecute their corrupt government buddies? Like pond scum, the swamp creatures cover for each other.
Treason has occurred under our watch. Real treason, from domestic enemies within our own government. Domestic enemies are more dangerous than foreign ones, because they look so much like the people they claim to be working against. Domestic treason is still punishable by death.
I did some research I would like to share with you. These are actual Federal codes designed to keep our politicians honest. Read through some of these and see if you think that there are some Donkeys and Elephants who are guilty of violating them. Consider also, those domestic terrorists in the streets in Portland and other cities who are intent on overthrowing America. The Law can be found here.
18. U.S Code §2381. Treason

18. U.S Code §2382. Misprision of treason

If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.
As used in this section, the terms “organizes” and “organize”, with respect to any society, group, or assembly of persons, include the recruiting of new members, the forming of new units, and the regrouping or expansion of existing clubs, classes, and other units of such society, group, or assembly of persons.
How much more of this are we Americans going to take? What would our forefathers have done? Trusting evil men to do good has not worked. Voting Republican has not worked. We’ve been betrayed.
